FEMA prisoner box cars with shackles and guillotines in America?

There is a sensational article “FEMA Ordered 102,000 Boxcars with Shackles” on Project.Nsearch, written by Anna Janek, Oct. 19, 2012, which was re-published by BeforeIt’sNews. The article claims that FEMA prisoner boxcars fitted with shackles and guillotines (!) have been seen across America. This is what Janek wrote:

FEMA ORDERED 102,000 Boxcars With Shackles! THE FACTS-GUNDERSON PRISONER BOXCARS WITH SHACKLES-A REPORT Here is a summary of the previous information circulating about Gunderson’s PRISONER BOXCARS WITH SHACKLES from previous reports circulating all over the nation on this subject, which I have written. BRENT GUNDERSON is challenging my information. CAN YOU PROVE HIM WRONG??? Many people have raised skeptical questions about reports of prisoner BOXCARS AND SHACKLES being sighted across America. Some people think that they are only reported originally through Phil Schnieder in a Patriot interview. Recently, someone erroneously reported that MY information on them originated from Phil Schnieder. WRONG! My research and documentation on the boxcars and shackles goes far beyond Phil´s interview. Long before I heard of him, I had eyewitness information on these boxcars. A van full of eyewitnesses, missionaries traveling across America to evangelize and pray, stumbled across these boxcars in Montana, near Columbia Falls in Glacier. They described boxcars, in this case painted black, with shackles welded into them and a modern guillotine at the head of each boxcar inside. As they were photographing mountain scenery, they decided to follow railroad tracks into the wilderness so as to not get lost. This is how they came upon these boxcars with shackles. I later received a report from Lee Harrington of Valier, MT, who was a professional metal worker. He told me how in Glascow, MT, summer youth workers were employed to weld shackles into boxcars in that operation. They were then shipped west to Glacier and stored on remote sidetracks. Passing through the Blackfoot Indian Reservation in Cutbank, a local Blackfoot Indian, George Bullcalf, spotted these strange boxcars. When I interviewed local Patriots in Columbia Falls, they confirmed that hunters often stumbled upon such boxcars on remote train spurs in that wilderness region. I THEN TRAVELED TO PORTLAND OREGON, and lectured in the home of an actual employee of GUNDERSON STEEL FABRICATION. The wife of this high level executive called this meeting personally to make a public admission. In the meeting were OTHER GUNDERSON EMPLOYEES who had witnessed the prisoner boxcars in the higher than normal, three floor/three tier prisoner boxcars. She admitted that her husband finally told her that GUNDERSON WAS UNDER SECRET CONTRACT FROM THE US GOVERNMENT TO PRODUCE THESE PRISONER BOXCARS. She also admitted that Gunderson had a satellite factory for a boxcars with shackles operation in Texas. I called Col. Jim Ammerman in Texas, famous military Patriot-lecturer against martial law, and told him about this. He replied, “A friend of mine who is a metal welder called me recently, and said he had gone to apply for a job in offered in Texas for welding. When he was told that it involved WELDING SHACKLES INTO BOXCARS, he declined the job!” I later interviewed Russian immigrants in this area who admitted that some of their people were working at Gunderson, and one young man, Sasha, admitted working on prisoner boxcars and described them completely to his Russian Christian friends there. THE RUSSIAN COMMMUNITY NOW KNOWS ABOUT THEM AND IS VERY AFRAID OF THE IMPLICATIONS!!! Many Russians still work there. Another source, WATCHDOG, a retired military vet with a watchdog group, described yet another boxcar with shackles operation in New Hampshire, with three tiered boxcars fitted with shackles. Metal worker Lee Harrington also described 20,000 CHINESE prisoner boxcars with shackles and modern guillotines, in the form of 40 foot railroad containers, coming into America via the west coast. They were ordered by the American government through a Senator who visited China and ordered these items. Workers unloading them became suspicious and began to investigate and discovered these horrors from China. Such 40 foot cargo containers from China are now piled up along the West Coast, especially around Long Beach Naval Shipyard, turned over the Chinese. I receive constant reports across America regarding these types of prisoner boxcars from former radio listeners and Patriots across America…and Canada. Recently, a former high level satanist from the mountains of North Carolina, now a Christian and receiving discipleship, admitted that boxcars with shackles were indeed in the mountains of NC and waiting for the hour of martial law. (Asheville, NC) He warned that many Patriots and Christians arrested and secured into these prisoner boxcars under martial law will never even make it to the death camps..that many will be tortured and sacrificed once restrained in these prisoner boxcars.

This news is so alarming, it cries out for verification. But how does one confirm or disconfirm alleged sightings of these boxcars?

One way to do that is to double-check the identities of the individuals named in Janek’s article.

I searched for the individuals cited  in the article, using paid-subscription people search engines. This is what I found:

  • There is a Lee Harrington, age 63, in Valier, Montana.
  • As for George Bullcalf, not only could I NOT find a George Bullcalf in Cutbank, MT, Instant Checkmate says they can’t find a George Bullcalf in all of Montana or in any of the other 49 states. but I did find a Glenda D. Bullcalf, who has a P. O. Box address in Browning, MT. However, no names came up as her “related persons.” Also, there is no Cutbank, MT, but there is a Cut Bank, MT, which is about 35 miles east of Browning, MT.
  • As for “Col. Jim Ammerman, Texas”: If it’s the same retired U.S. Army chaplain Col. Elmer Harmon “Jim” Ammerman, described as a “widely recognized proponent of New World Order conspiracy theory,” he had died on May 17, 2011. — one year five months before Anna Janek’s article.
  • As for “Gunderson Steel Fabrication,” a search for those 3 words yielded only websites reproducing or referring to Janek’s article. I can’t find a company that’s actually called Gunderson Steel Fabrication, in Texas or Oregon. There is a Gunderson that is one of the companies in The Greenbrier Companies headquartered in Lake Oswego, Oregon.

Here’s Greenbrier’s self-description:

The Greenbrier Companies, headquartered in Lake Oswego, Oregon, is a leading supplier of transportation equipment and services to the railroad industry. The Company builds new railroad freight cars in its three manufacturing facilities in the U.S. and Mexico and marine barges at its U.S. facility. It also repairs and refurbishes freight cars and provides wheels and railcar parts at 40 locations across North America. Greenbrier builds new railroad freight cars and refurbishes freight cars for the European market through both its operations in Poland and various subcontractor facilities throughout Europe. Greenbrier owns approximately 9,100 railcars, and performs management services for approximately 216,000 railcars.

The Company Timeline says Greenbrier began in 1919 as Wire Wheel Sales and Service, “a leading steel fabricator in Portland, Oregon,” owned by the Gunderson brothers. By 1947, the business became known as Gunderson Brothers. In 1985, James Furman & Co. acquired the former Gunderson site from FMC Corporation and changed the name back to Gunderson, Inc. In 1994, the company completed its IPO (initial public offering) and became the Greenbrier Companies, Inc.

Bill Furman is Greenbrier’s CEO. Here’s his contact info:

This map shows Greenbrier has two manufacturing plants in Texas and one in Oregon.

Here are some pictures of what looks to be box cars on Greenbrier’s website:

Greenbrier’s page on boxcars has 6 photos of its boxcars of different colors and sizes. None resembles the alleged prisoner boxcars pictured in Anna Janek’s BeforeIt’sNews article:

To conclude, I cannot confirm that there’s a George Bullcalf in Montana or anywhere in the United States. Most egregious is the fact that the Col. Jim Ammerman referenced by Anna Janek had died 17 months before she wrote and published her article in which she quotes him. There is no Gunderson Steel Fabrication. Furthermore, the company name “Gunderson” hasn’t been used for at least 18 years, not since 1994.

Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. But Janek did not produce photographic evidence of the shackles and guillotines inside the alleged prisoner boxcars. That evidence would certainly be useful.

For us to believe — and spread — Janek’s sensational claims would play right into our political opponents’ cartoon depiction of conservatives as looney-tune nutcases. Don’t fall for it!
