SC Mission 2012 Starts Today: Disaster Exercise Masquerading as 'Free Healthcare Event'

On the heels of a WMD drill known as Operation Four Aces being conducted in the Myrtle Beach, South Carolina area, the state capital of Columbia is now getting a taste of the action as well. The difference, however, is that this event is not specifically centered around a terrorist attack. In fact, this drill supposedly isn’t even a drill at all.

SC Mission 2012 is actually described as “a free healthcare event for people living in the Midlands” whose mission is to “1) address the immediate needs of individuals and 2) help place these individuals in a medical home to receive regular care. Services include free medical, dental, vision and pharmacy services.”

The description continues, stating that the services being provided will be available to anyone who needs medical care.

So far so good.

However, SC Mission 2012 is somewhat more than a free healthcare fair. It is actually a disaster training exercise that will include the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control office of Public Health Preparedness (SCDHEC PHP) and none other than the South Carolina State Guard.

While the event is being sponsored by the “South Carolina Hospital Association, AccessHealth SC, the South Carolina Optometric Association, United Way, Blue Cross Blue Shield Foundation, hospitals in the Midlands and a host of other partners,” Roger Hovis of the SCDHEC PHP was instrumental in planning the “health fair.”

SCDHEC PHP is usually focused on preparing for natural disasters like hurricanes and earthquakes. However, the agency is now focusing on SC Mission 2012 because, as WISTV reports, the exercise might be relevant to a possible event that may “overwhelm first responders.” What this type of scenario might be was not explained.

SC Mission 2012 will take place at the South Carolina State Fairgrounds and the organizers expect to see around 2,000 patients during the course of the event. The event is set to take place on August 17.

In regards to the massive preparation required for the exercise, Roger Hovis stated to WISTV, “What you see the guys and gals doing is helping set up, the same situation, same infrastructure, that we'd set up at the South Carolina State Fair or the Carolina Coliseum, in the event of a mass disaster.”

Howard Lederfind, the individual running the City of Columbia’s Communications Trailer and “memorizing faces,” builds upon the “disaster drill” aspect of SC Mission 2012 when he says that, “During a regular disaster, these same people are going to be out in the field working with us.”

“We get to know the people, we get to know their faces,” he continues. “When something happens we’re familiar with the operations.”

Despite what would constitute a “regular disaster” remaining in question, the “same people” Lederfind refers to no doubt includes the State Guard.

Yet, as stated above, SC Mission 2012 is not a disaster drill. In fact, Major Linda Warren of the SC State Guard clearly stated as much.

“It’s real world,” she said. “You can practice and train and pretend all you want, but this is real.”

Taylor Kearns of WISTV adds,
Warren and the South Carolina State Guard are another group deployed for what amounts to real world training. 
The throngs of patients probably won’t realize that a team of people is preparing for the worst.
Preparing indeed. But, if Major Warren is to be believed, the operation is actually underway. It is, after all, not a drill but “real world.”

Of course, it is entirely possible that Major Warren merely had a slip of the tongue and that SC Mission 2012 really is just a disaster preparedness drill. However, this in and of itself is quite concerning when one understands that these individuals are still preparing for a mass relocation of American citizens from their homes to city centers and government run “relief” camps.

It is certainly no accident that the SC State Fairgrounds are serving as the training area for SC Mission 2012 as fairgrounds tend to make great FEMA camps. Even Roger Hovis stated as much when he claimed that, in the event of an emergency, such “relief” efforts would be set up at the fairgrounds or the coliseum.

Furthermore, it is interesting to take a look at the SC Mission 2012 website in order to see what individuals attending the event should expect to find.

Here’s what to expect:
Patients should arrive at the State Fairgrounds prepared to wait in line outside for services. The weather will be hot. We recommend that patients plan accordingly, bringing water and possibly a tailgating chair, while also keeping in mind that it will be their responsibility to carry and keep those items during the event.
This is interesting because those who do show up for the free healthcare at the event will be standing outside in the heat (mid-August in Columbia, South Carolina), many of whom are already ill, becoming more and more dehydrated and anxious as the day wears on. Thus, it appears those agencies training (or apparently engaging in “real world” operations) have created a perfect situation for themselves in which to practice herding Americans into “relief” centers and “providing” medical treatment. In these circumstances, the trainees are able to practice doing so in lifelike situations with the patients actually being exposed to the elements for an extended period of time before being seen.

While some may consider such postulation as conspiracy theory, paranoia, or fear-mongering, the fact is that the US Military, the Department of Homeland Security, FEMA, and a host of other government agencies have been planning for the forced relocation of American citizens to detention centers “in the event of a national emergency” for quite some time.

Indeed, South Carolina has been receiving some notable attention recently with the aforementioned Operation Four Aces occurring in Myrtle Beach only a few weeks ago.

In addition, a recent report written by retired US Army Colonel Kevin Benson, entitled, “Full Spectrum Operations in the Homeland: A ‘Vision’ Of The Future,” supposed a scenario was where “tea-party insurrectionists” stage a coup in Darlington, South Carolina.

With this in mind, it might be a good idea to keep a close eye on SC Mission 2012.
