Roland's Page of Wisdom


Roland’s Information Page

Updated 2/09/03


Anyone who has visited this site and done much reading on the feedback page, “Readers Also Write,” has undoubtedly seen many contributions from “Roland” noted therein.  This man works tirelessly as a researcher and “sharer” of the truth as he discovers and defines it.  I thought it was about time he had his own section on this site to share much of that truth, because if anyone deserves a personal forum on the Internet, he definitely qualifies. 


Roland and I do not see exactly eye-to-eye on everything – that only adds to the motto of this site – “Unique Point Of View.”  Each and every one of us should have that unique point of view that is exclusively ours alone.  That does not negate the value of our individual beliefs.  These beliefs should be shared in this environment of educational facts and opinions.  We are not, after all, the “National Education Association” seeking to standardize learning in this freedom-loving country.  We are individuals with a desire to make things better for all Americans living now and those who will follow. 


I am convinced that Roland Croteau deserves to have his tireless research and dissemination of information published in this Internet format.  Please welcome his efforts and learn from them. 




The globalists have been very busy getting this totalitarian control system in place. There is way
more information than can be ever read or thoroughly researched, but here is a small drop in the bucket on the subject. Oh, you've heard about these alleged camps, but you always thought it was just too nutty to believe. "Our government would never do THAT!" you liked to think. But maybe by now, either you already know such denial is weak, or you are in the process of
reconsidering. This will help you make up your mind. If you have friends who think it’s a wacko idea, show them these links. If they honestly read most of them and STILL don't believe it, then it is THEY who are truly nuts!  PW



Camps for Citizens: Ashcroft's Hellish Vision Attorney general shows himself as a menace to liberty.  Atty. Gen. John Ashcroft's announced desire for camps for U.S. citizens he deems to be "enemy combatants" has moved him from merely being a political embarrassment to being a constitutional menace.

Foundations are in place for martial law in the US Recent pronouncements from the Bush Administration and national security initiatives put in place in the Reagan era could see internment camps and martial law in the United States.

ACLU Calls Immigrant Registration Program Pretext for Mass Detentions WASHINGTON – In a development that confirms the American Civil Liberties Union's initial fears about a controversial immigrant fingerprinting and registration program, the Immigration and Naturalization Service is apparently using the program as a pretext for the mass detention of hundreds of Middle Eastern and Muslim men and boys.


What's Next...Concentration Camps?
This is the season of demystification. What people of my generation never understood about the mass delusions of recent history--Nazism, Stalinism, holocaust, genocide, thought crimes, totalitarian spying--is all becoming crystal clear.

Arabs in U.S. could be held, official warns Rights unit member foresees detainment A member of the U.S. Civil Rights Commission said in Detroit on Friday he could foresee a scenario in which
the public would demand internment camps for Arab Americans if Arab terrorists strike again in this country.

Concentration Camps in U.S. Photos, testimonials, commentary regarding detention /
concentration camps in America run by foreign troops -- eventually to be filled with patriots who oppose the New World Order when martial law comes?

FEMA Frequencies
F.E.M.A. (Federal Emergency Management Agency) has been authorized for the past 15 years by Presidential Executive Orders to confiscate all property from the American People, separate families in the current 43 internment camps (already built and operational by the way, 5 of which are located in Georgia. The largest can confine somewhere on the order of 100,000 American
citizens), called relocation camps by the government, for assignment to work camps; declares martial law and totally overrides the U.S. Constitution. Presidential Executive Orders that are related or control this are given at the end of this. Two of the state prisons here in Georgia are currently empty, although manned by a minimal number of staff, have been setup and intentionally unpopulated by prisoners just to support this political policy.

The Final Solution for Patriots and Christians

For at least a year now stories have been circulating on the Internet about facilities being prepared across the country intended for incarceration of segments of the civilian population. The facilities are variously described as concentration camps, relocation centers, detention stations, etc. It can now be confirmed that laws are being put on the books of the various states that provide for the "evacuation" of civilians to predetermined locations in other states.

"America's Largest Human Crematory in Texas"
During my investigating of coming martial law, I interviewed a former CIA expert in bio-chem terrorism, Larry Wayne Harris. He told me of an interesting experience he had while actively working for the CIA.  "I was flown in a small plane by another CIA officer over Mount Franklin in Texas. Mt. Franklin is an artificial mountain concealing a massive human crematory oven facility. Three large chimneys rise up from the base to exit at the top. At the base there is a tunnel and railroad tracks running through it.  Beneath the tracks in the mountain is the furnace into which refrigerator morgue cars will dump the dead bodies.

What's next?
L.A. protests against detention of Iranians BBC Online: US immigration officials in Southern
California have detained hundreds of Iranians and other Muslim men who turned up to register under residence laws brought in as part of the anti-terror drive. Reports say between 500 and 700 men were arrested in and around Los Angeles after they complied with an order to register by 16 December.

Detainees Equal Dollars
The Rise in Immigrant Incarcerations drives a prison boom.  "It's a win-win," says Morgan. The INS is desperate for more beds for its ever expanding detainee population. And the state of Nebraska, collecting $65 per detainee per day from the INS, rakes in more than $1 million a year over and above the cost of running the place. County jailers have long known that housing INS detainees pumps easy income into the coffers.  Nearly 900 facilities around the country provide beds for the INS, and in interviews over the years, several county sheriffs and wardens have described such detainees as a "cash crop."

General Ashcroft's Detention Camps
Time to Call for His Resignation "Attorney General John Ashcroft's announced desire for camps for U.S. citizens he deems to be 'enemy combatants' has moved him from merely being a political embarrassment to being a constitutional menace." Actually, ever since General Ashcroft pushed
the U.S. Patriot Act through an overwhelmingly supine Congress soon after September 11, he has subverted more elements of the Bill of Rights than any attorney general in American history.

In a revealing admission the Director of Resource Management for the U.S. Army confirmed the validity of a memorandum relating to the establishment of a civilian inmate labor program under development by the Department of the Army. The document states, "Enclosed for your review and comment is the draft Army regulation on civilian inmate labor utilization" and the procedure to "establish civilian prison camps on installations." Cherith Chronicle, June 1997.

The INS Round Up
Creating a Secure America...Or Leaving Another History of Shame?
I remember about five years ago I was reading a book for my son. It was about the Japanese-Americans internment in the U.S.. I was explaining to him how mistakes were made and that later the government apologized for them, and I was wondering what he feels about this? Little did I know that a few years down the road our government was going to make the same mistakes again, and that this time immigrants from my homeland Iran will also be affected!

US condemned for secret arrests
More than 3,000 people died in the terror attacks The campaign group, Human Rights Watch, has accused the United States Government of secret arrests, arbitrary detentions and of violating due process in its response to the 11 September attacks.

American Gulag
Hundreds of 9/11 detainees remain behind bars, shrouded in secrecy. Such Kafkaesque logic is helping to keep many of the post-September 11 detainees behind bars. While Ashcroft works to expand secrecy to cover actual U.S. citizens—as in the case of reputed "dirty bomber" Jose Padilla—the hundreds still jailed desperately wait for a court to intervene.

Ethics, Ethnics Both Under Fire
The Martial Plan
Are we headed toward martial law? Last week Peter Kirsanow, a Bush appointee to the U.S. Civil Rights Commission, said in Detroit that he envisions a situation in which the public will demand internment camps for Arab Americans. If terrorists attack the U.S. for a second time and if "they come from the same ethnic group that attacked the World Trade Center, you can forget about civil rights," he said.

EFF Analysis Of The Provisions Of The USA PATRIOT Act That Relate To Online Activities (Oct 31, 2001)
On October 26, 2001, President Bush signed the USA Patriot Act (USAPA) into law. With this law we have given sweeping new powers to both domestic law enforcement and international intelligence agencies and have eliminated the checks and balances that previously gave courts the opportunity to ensure that these powers were not abused. Most of these checks and balances were put into place after previous misuse of surveillance powers by these agencies, including the
revelation in 1974 that the FBI and foreign intelligence agencies had spied on over 10,000 U.S.
citizens, including Martin Luther King.


'Model' Emergency (Dictatorial) Health Bill Passing In Many States

Act To Help Ensure Rapid and Orderly Response to Public Health Threats
Today, the CDC Collaborating Center for Law and the Public's Health at Georgetown University and Johns Hopkins University released the Model Emergency Health Powers Act to help states to rapidly and orderly respond to bioterrorism, emerging epidemics, and other public health emergencies. The Model Act was prepared for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
(CDC), in collaboration with leading national organizations, including the National Governors
Association, National Conference of State Legislatures, National Association of Attorneys General, Association of State and Territorial Health Officials, and National Association of City and County Health Officers. The Model Act will enable every state to safeguard its citizens against increasing threats of bioterrorism and other emergency health threats.

The Posse Comitatus Act of 1878
This bit of relative antiquity defines the role of the US Military in our lives and keeps us from becoming little more than a wealthy banana republic.

In response to the military presence in the Southern States during the Reconstruction Era, Congress passed the Posse Comitatus Act[1] ("PCA" or the "Act") to prohibit the use of the Army in civilian law enforcement. The Act embodies the traditional American principle of separating civilian and military authority and currently forbids the use of the Army and Air Force to enforce civilian laws.[2] In the last fifteen years, Congress has deliberately eroded this principle by involving the military in drug interdiction at our borders.[3] This erosion will continue unless Congress renews the PCA's principle to preserve the necessary and traditional separation of
civilian and military authority.


U.S. readies tribunals for terrorism trials WASHINGTON - The Pentagon is oiling up legal machinery that hasn't been used since World War II as another weapon in the war on terrorism: special military tribunals to try selected terrorist suspects

'Citizen, Can I See Your ID...'
What has not been explained to the American people is the reason why 35,000 Army Reservists and 65,000 National Guard have been called up. It is to maintain internal checkpoints. It has nothing to do with the external "War on Terrorism." All of these people are being trained at the US Army School of Urban Control at Fort Campbell, Kentucky. CNN actually showed an urban training mock-up, what they're training on, and what the new Internal Security checkpoint is going to look like. It was mighty sinister looking.

Wider Military Role in U.S. Is Urged
The four-star general in charge of defending the United States against attack said he would favor
changes in existing law to give greater domestic powers to the military to protect the country against terrorist strikes.

Arrival of the American Garrison State
The Pentagon is proposing the creation of a four-star command to oversee federal troops engaged in "homeland defense" activity on American soil. While CINC regional chiefs have long coordinated deployments overseas, none exist for North America. Soon, however, the circle will be complete, and the noose will be around our necks.

Northern Command General Endorses Posse Comitatus Review
Although Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld has said the Pentagon would not seek any changes in the venerable Posse Comitatus Act that restricts the use of the military in domestic operations, President Bush's new plan for domestic security included a notable provision calling for Justice and Defense attorneys to review it.

Domestic Military Role Under Review
Homeland security chief Tom Ridge says the threat of terrorism may force government planners to consider using the military for domestic law enforcement, now largely prohibited by federal law.

Ridge Wants US Army To Have Homeland Arrest And Shoot Power
Washington (Bloomberg) -- The government should consider reversing a more than a century of tradition and law to give the military authority to make arrests and fire their weapons on U.S. soil in the event of a terrorist attack, Homeland Security Director Tom Ridge said.

Sandpoint, ID-Attorneys commissioned by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta have advanced health policy legislation that dramatically suspends civil rights in case of a declared biological emergency. The "Model State Emergency Health Powers Act," according to the Boston Globe, would give public health officials and states governors the power to arrest, transport, quarantine, drug, and vaccinate anyone suspected of carrying a potentially infectious disease.

We can read the following as "CONQUEST BY IMMIGRATION"


More countries issue ID cards to illegal aliens in U.S.
By Jerry Seper

     Guatemala, Honduras, Poland, Peru and El Salvador, aware of Mexico's success in getting identification cards to its citizens in the United States, including those here illegally, have begun or are considering issuing cards of their own, federal officials said yesterday.

Known as "matricula consular cards," the digitally-coded documents are being used by Mexican nationals in the United States as legal forms of identification, giving the holders the ability to apply for social services, open bank accounts, cash checks, sign lease and rental agreements, and board airplanes.
     The laminated cards, which do not list the holder's immigration status, also are being used as a legal form of identification by those stopped or questioned by police. Nearly a million of the cards were issued last year by the Mexican government to Mexican nationals now in this country.
     In the wake of the Mexican program, Guatemala began issuing similar identity cards last year known as the "Tarjeta de Identificacion Consular." It plans eventually to make them available to the estimated 327,000 Guatemalans living in the United States.
     Honduras, Poland and Peru have the matter under serious consideration. El Salvador has begun issuing a secure, in-country identification card known as the Documento Unico de Identidad (DUI), but has not said whether it will expand the program.
     While Mexican President Vicente Fox has been unsuccessful after the September 11 attacks on America in getting new amnesty agreements, he has overseen an active lobbying campaign by the Mexican government to persuade U.S. mayors, police chiefs and bank presidents to accept the cards as legal identification.
     Hundreds of state and local governments, along with 798 police agencies and 74 banks, now accept the cards for identification purposes — despite warnings by federal law-enforcement authorities of potential widespread fraud involving the cards.
     The Mexican lobbying effort first targeted U.S. banks that hope to cash in on some of the $9.5 billion sent home last year by the Mexican nationals in this country unable to open bank accounts because of a lack of proper identification.
     Wells Fargo Bank was the first to accept the card, approving its use in 2001. At the time, the bank said the decision was made with the support of the Bush administration and the Treasury Department.
     Ironically, no major bank in Mexico lists the "matricula consular card" among the official identification documents they accept to open an account, and the cards are recognized for identification purpose in only 10 of Mexico's 32 states and districts.
     In a report released yesterday, the Washington-based Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) said the Mexican government undertook an aggressive grass-roots lobbying campaign to win acceptance of the cards, especially in areas where Mexican illegal aliens are concentrated.
     The report, by Marti Dinerstein, said the objective was to achieve quasi-legal status for the 3 million to 5 million Mexican illegal aliens in the United States without waiting for now-stalled amnesty legislation.
     According to the report, the card is useful only for illegal aliens, since legal immigrants, by definition, have U.S. government-issued documents. The report also said Mexico cannot guarantee the security of the cards since the government does not authenticate the documents used to obtain them against computerized data files in Mexico.
     The report also said safeguards are not in place to prevent the issuance of multiple cards to the same person, noting that the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service already has reported finding several cards in different names issued to the same person.
     "Mexico's marketing of its consular cards is a direct challenge to U.S. sovereignty," Miss Dinerstein said at a press conference. "By aggressively lobbying state and local governments to accept them, Mexico is changing America's de facto immigration policy in lieu of congressional action.
     "And it has been doing so while the U.S. government watched — or even gave its consent," she said, adding that acceptance of the cards sets a precedent that makes it almost impossible to reject similar cards from other countries.
     The cards cost $29, are valid for five years and can be obtained from any of the 47 Mexican consular offices in this country with a birth certificate, official ID photo and proof of U.S. residence.
     About the size of a driver's license, they contain the bearer's photo, name, address, date and place of birth, signature and the official seal of Mexico.
     Last week, the General Services Administration suspended recognition of the cards at federal facilities pending an investigation. The GSA said once the probe is completed, a recommendation would be made to federal law enforcement and security agencies to ensure the cards' integrity and security.



Not A Christian nation???


American Minute with Bill Federer

January 13th

Educated at Oxford, James Oglethorpe joined the Austrian army and was fighting the invading Muslim Turks at age 17. Upon return to England, he entered Parliament and presided over prison reform. There he got the idea of founding a colony in America where the poor and destitute could start afresh and where people persecuted for their faith could find refuge. James Oglethorpe secured a charter for the Colony of Georgia

and on this day, January 13, 1733, one hundred and twenty settlers, who had sailed across the ocean to America, went ashore, knelt down and declared: "Our end in leaving our native country is not to gain riches and honor, but singly this: to live wholly to the glory of God."



Previously -


I received the following note from Roland on January 25th.  It takes precedence over everything else at the moment, so I am posting it first on this special page for him.  As my time permits, I will add other inputs from him that will show just how involved he is at getting out the truth.  In the meantime, let me make it abundantly clear that I consider him a target of many evils.  May your prayers be with him as he fights the good fight!


He is a treasure to the cause of freedom in America.  Deb V



From Roland –


To All,


The IRS just went to a new level with me.


My wife had to use the front door last night (which is rare) and found an unmarked, large envelope taped to the door. Our names were on it but that was all. She opened it to find three standard IRS documents/booklets regarding their collection process and my "rights", etc.


This is new. We've not had them actually come to our home before. The warnings are ominous in that they say this is a final warning and they may come to force us out of our home. (Please understand I have been through the "Certified Mail" process from the IRS with their " Notice of Intent to Levy" more than once.) I have made my position plain to anyone who has read my affidavit. I'll live free or die.


If for some reason, I should drop off the net without warning, chances are something has happened. I wouldn't mind if y'all would print this out and keep it in the event there is a "showdown".


My name is Roland Croteau  Rte. 2 Box 50B  (mailing address P.O. Box 965) Beaver, OK.73932  I am 6 miles east and then 6 miles south out of Beaver. My phone is 580-837-5629  e-mail


My family, my wife and her family were quite sure I started to "round the bend" when I joined Bob Schulz in DC in July 2001 and began a fast until death in an effort to get our "government" to answer our redress of grievances regarding the income tax. After many years of fighting and going nowhere (for me), Bob seemed to make the most sense....go into the heart of the beast...the source.  As you know, government signed a "promise" to meet us in a PUBLIC forum on July 20th 2001 but eventually reneged. I realized, without a doubt that Washington, DC (and all of its attendant agencies down through the state and local levels) was/is not our government if they will not honor their end of the "contract", meaning the Constitution and Bill of Rights...especially after nearly 3 years of humble pleadings/petitions.


I wrote out and sent my Affidavit: Statement of Facts, Declaration of Independence and Rules of Engagement to President Bush, Speaker Hastert, (then) Leader Daschle and all my congressmen from the federal down to the state and local levels.


I have informed my congressmen over and over and mailed or faxed them every correspondence between the IRS and myself for the last couple of years and have full documentation covering several more years (as I built my case) only to receive tripe back in response. I also fully understand the court system is so corrupt and cowardly, I'll never find truth, justice or remedy there.


Even the less educated should understand this; we either have a Constitution and a Bill of Rights or we don't. IF we have a Constitution, then government MUST answer the people. If they don't (AND THEY HAVE NOT AND WILL NOT!), then I am not bound to be obedient to their "color of law" by any standard. I cannot and will not support a government that operates as extortionists and cannot even produce a "law" that says I am responsible (and most of the "citizens of the "United States") for their "tribute" (after being given every possible opportunity). I clearly understand the scam of the "Federal Reserve System" and the perpetual debt it has put us all under.


As far as I am concerned the insanity, the intellectual/emotional muggings, the waiting in terror for "the next shoe to drop", the ruthlessness of their evil stops here and now.


To the IRS I want me...come and get me. You understand the "Rules of Engagement". Do what you have to do and I will do the same.


To anyone reading this...I hope, that in the event of a final "showdown" (realizing I am outgunned), that someone come here and learn the truth and then spread the story of what happened far and wide to let others know...I was a man, a man who said he would live under his God's Laws and wished to harm no-one but could no longer live under man-made tyranny and took his stand.




Long Live The Fighters,



P.S. To show the world the cowards my congressmen are...I am sending a copy of this to each. Their names are Nickles, Inhofe and Lucas. They wouldn't help me when I was in DC and pled with them to help me arrive at the truth and I am quite confident they won't now. Let us all understand...the people in this government have aligned themselves with evil and have sold us all out in the name of "helping us".



Here is one other input from Roland to ponder as you consider his plight.



Forsaken Roots in the United States

Did you know that 52 of the 55 signers of the Declaration of Independence were orthodox, deeply committed Christians? The other three all believed in the Bible as the divine truth, the God of scripture, and His personal intervention.

It is the same Congress that formed the American Bible Society. Immediately after creating the Declaration of Independence, the Continental Congress voted to purchase and import 20,000 copies of scripture for the people of this nation.

Patrick Henry, who is called the firebrand of the American Revolution,is still remembered for his words, "Give me liberty or give me death." But in current textbooks the context of these words is deleted. Here is what he actually said: "An appeal to arms and the God of hosts is all that is left us. But we shall not fight our battle alone. There is a just God that presides over the destinies of nations. The battle sir, is not to the strong alone.  Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be
purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it almighty God. I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death."

These sentences have been erased from our textbooks. Was Patrick Henry a Christian? The following year, 1776, he wrote this "It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great Nation was founded not by religionists, but
by Christians; not on religions, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For that reason alone, people of other faiths have been afforded freedom of worship here."

Consider these words that Thomas Jefferson wrote on the front of his well-worn Bible: "I am a real Christian, that is to say, a disciple of the doctrines of Jesus. I have little doubt that our whole country will soon be rallied to the unity of our Creator " He was also the chairman of the American Bible Society, which he considered his highest and most important role.

On July 4, 1821, President Adams said, "The highest glory of the American Revolution was this: it connected in one indissoluble bond the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity."

Calvin Coolidge, our 30th President of the United States reaffirmed this truth when he wrote, "The foundations of our society and our government rest so much on the teachings of the Bible that it would be difficult to support them if faith in these
teachings would cease to be practically universal in our country."

In 1782, the United States Congress voted this resolution: "The Congress of the United States recommends and approves the Holy Bible for use in all schools."

William Holmes McGuffey is the author of the McGuffey Reader, which was used for over 100 years in our public schools with over 125 million copies sold until it was stopped in 1963. President Lincoln called him the "Schoolmaster of the Nation."

Listen to these words of Mr. McGuffey: "The Christian religion is the religion of our country.  From it are derived our notions on the character of God, on the great moral Governor of the universe.  On its doctrines are founded the peculiarities of our free institutions. From no source has the author drawn more conspicuously than from the sacred Scriptures.  From all these extracts from the Bible I make no apology."

Of the first 108 universities founded in America, 106 were distinctly Christian, including the first, Harvard University, chartered in 1636.  In the original Harvard Student Handbook, rule number 1 was that students seeking entrance must know
Latin and Greek so that they could study the scriptures:  "Let every student be plainly instructed and earnestly pressed to consider well, the main end of his life and studies is, to know God and Jesus Christ, which is eternal life, John 17:3; and therefore to lay Jesus Christ as the only foundation for our children to follow the moral principles of the Ten Commandments? James Madison, the primary author of the Constitution of the United States, said this: "We have staked the whole future of our new nation not upon the power of government; far from it. We have staked the future of all our political constitutions upon the capacity of each of ourselves to govern ourselves according to the moral principles of the Ten Commandments."

Today, we are asking God to bless America. But, how can He bless a Nation that has departed so far from Him? Prior to September 11, He was not welcome in America. Most of what you read in this article has been erased from our textbooks.  Revisionists have rewritten history to remove the truth about our country's Christian roots. You are encouraged to make copies, and share with others,
so that the truth of our nation's history will be told.
