Jackass Alert!

While the regular folks in the US labor under a failing economy, massive job losses and uncontrolled illegal immigration, it seems those fine jackasses in the District of Criminals never run out of ideas on how to make life more miserable for those of us not considered “worthy”. 

Food prices have risen almost 90% in the last year, 60% of that rise occurring immediately after the passage of the fake food safety bill which was actually a forced export bill with 80% of our agricultural production now pushed into the global market for commodity speculation and pricing. 

Home foreclosures are still at historic highs.  Of course the Jackasses would never think of clamping down on corrupt mortgage lenders and seizing their ill gotten gains or putting any one of them in jail for their corruption.  That would be just too much to ask.

As gas prices at the pumps continue to rise without explanation it appears that the Jackass in Chief has decided it might be a good idea to attach surveillance equipment to each and every vehicle in the US and to tax us per mile that we drive.  This traveling surveillance tax would be applied every time you bought a gallon of gas.

As this writer clearly points out, every piece of information about you; what you do, where you do it, when you did it, what it costs, is data-mined with the intention of using it against you as criminal evidence, should the government decide you have become a nuisance.  M~~~~~

By Antifascist Calling

March 19, 2010 “Antifascist Calling” — Mar. 14, 2010 — A truism perhaps, but before resorting to brute force and open repression to halt the “barbarians at the gates,” that would be us, the masters of declining empires (and the chattering classes who polish their boots) regale us with tales of “democracy on the march,” “hope” and other banalities before the mailed fist comes crashing down.Putting it another way, as the late, great Situationist malcontent, Guy Debord did decades ago in his relentless call for revolt, The Society of the Spectacle:

“The reigning economic system is a vicious circle of isolation. Its technologies are based on isolation, and they contribute to that same isolation. From automobiles to television, the goods that the spectacular system chooses to produce also serve it as weapons for constantly reinforcing the conditions that engender ‘lonely crowds.’ With ever-increasing concreteness the spectacle recreates its own presuppositions.”
And when those “presuppositions” reproduce ever-more wretched clichés promulgated by true believers or rank opportunists, take your pick, market “democracy,” the “freedom to choose” (the length of one’s chains), or even quaint notions of national “sovereignty” (a sure fire way to get, and keep, the masses at each others’ throats!) we’re left with a fraud, a gigantic swindle, a “postmodern” refinement of tried and true methods that would do Orwell proud!

Ponder Debord’s rigorous theorem and substitute “cell phone” and “GPS” for “automobile,” and “Internet” for “television” and you’re soon left with the nauseating sense that the old “infobahn” isn’t all its cracked up to be. As a seamless means for effecting control on the other hand, of our thoughts, our actions, even our whereabouts; well, that’s another story entirely! More

“National Security” doesn’t include you

What the Republicans started, the Democrats are finishing.  All the assaults on civil liberties, the loss of freedom and the conversion from a Constitutional Republic to a fascist surveillance police state is nearly complete.  The noose on the free American people is tightening as congress accelerates its planned overthrow of our nation.  Here are some knots in the rope to think about:

 

REAL ID……to identify each of us through dna, and other biometric data.  Once implemented will be used to track our movements and/or prohibit them.  Location! Location! Location!  We sound like real estate don’t we?  And to think they now refer to us as [human capital].

 

Newborn DNA gathering……Each state since 1992 has been logging the dna of all newborns and this info is now on file with Homeland Security and available to international interests and anyone with the money to pay to know our genetic information and to base fees, rates and other assessments on our persons based on our genetic makeup.    

 

GPS used to locate vehicles.  Now, several states are considering plans to force every automobile owner to have GPS installed.  The intent of this is to be able to track the movement of every vehicle at will…..the perk is another tax to be applied to the number of miles you drive…..recorded by GPS.  And of course, the cost of this surveillance will be borne by more money borrowed in our names.

 

GPS in cell phones… One number for life, right?  You can figure this one out on your own.

 

FEMA camps, of which it is suggested, number in the hundreds, are operational and located in almost every state.  HR 645 turns closed military bases into FEMA detention centers.  This answers the question of why Bush and Rumsfeld began closing military bases while we were in the middle of two wars.  

 

Fusion Centers, your local data mining, local surveillance and information gathering centers are in multiple locations in every state.  These should be more accurately called [snitch and report centers].

 

Homeland Security continues and expands its no-fly, blacklists, terrorist watch lists, suspect lists, and dozens of other black listings of American citizens.  Without evidence, without charges filed…..we have been determined to be guilty with no way of proving our innocence.  Now, some desk jockey with a title and nothing to do can add your name, my name…anyone’s name to a list of “suspects”, sometimes just for mentioning the Constitution, supporting the 2nd Amendment, or speaking about your rights.

 

The illegal wiretapping of every phone call, every internet search, every contact we have that can be tracked, traced, viewed, read, intercepted, continues without abatement. 

 

Every financial transaction using our bank accounts, credit cards or any other method is recorded and analyzed and can be flagged at any time.  Even your visits to that mega grocery store are video taped and a record of your purchases handed over to the IRS in the event of an audit.

 

NAIS…..The National Animal Identification System……designed to abolish private property rights and to seize control of livestock production and ownership by family and independent producers.  RFID tagging of all animals…even pets.

 

Fake Food Safety bills……HR 875, one among many bills,  which legislates the establishment of yet another unnecessary and bloated bureaucracy whose focus will be to end anything except industrialized agriculture by multi-national corporations.  These bills are the overt attempt to seize control of production of the food supply and to end production by anyone other than multi-national corporations using government agencies and personnel for enforcement.

 

In all of this and much more that I didn’t mention, the term [national security] is used repeatedly to justify the loss of rights, the encroachment of government on all levels into our everyday lives.  Surveillance, the militarization of our local police forces, the establishing of Fusion centers that do nothing but data mine for information on our routine daily activities, the existence of detention centers for American citizens, the gathering of DNA for unknown reasons and uses, and the attempts to hand over our food production capabilities to industrialized corporate Ag who are already deeply entrenched in what is supposed to be the people’s government, sends a clear and distinct message to all of us defining what the term [national security] really means.

 

National security has come to mean the government is afraid of its own people and these measures are necessary to make those in government and those who collude with them safe from us.  We have become the enemy our government fears.

Rep. Colin Peterson: for us or against us? Is he is, or is he ain’t?

4 Comments

Living within twenty miles of (D) Colin Peterson’s home office, and living in the middle of dairy herds and cornfields, I find it startling to believe anyone from the great State of Minnesota would not only be pushing the NAIS (National Animal Identification System) but was actually the sponsor of one of the first bills in 2005 attempting to implement this devastating encumbrance of farming and ranch operations. 

 

Known as the ‘‘National Farm Animal Identification and Records Act,’’ this bill would have required the establishment of an electronic nationwide livestock identification system within 90 days of enactment.

 

“The livestock identification system shall be capable of tracing, within 48 hours, livestock from birth to slaughter. The bill also prevents the unauthorized release of information collected under the system and promotes an objective review of U.S. Department of Agriculture responses to livestock disease outbreaks.”

H.R. 1254, introduced March 10, 2005 never became law. 

 

Don’t think that stopped Peterson!  He attempted to insert NAIS mandates and funding into the 2008 Farm Bill and is currently working to make NAIS mandatory even as the backlash from farmers and ranchers and the public at large has continued to grow.  As the actual conditions and enforcements of NAIS are exposed, not to mention the incredible costs associated with it while US food producers labor under economic instability, Peterson continues to push for the industrialization of farming and ranching, apparently believing his own rhetoric about how this invasive and destructive system is somehow going to make the food supply safe from unknown or possible threats that were eliminated generations ago, or don’t really exist. 

 

The recent activities of both the USDA and FDA would indicate surveillance and raids on independent farms and ranches which are neither objective nor in the interest of protecting the public, have exposed the fallacy of concerns about disease.  And no one has bothered to even speak about who or what is going to protect US farmers and ranchers from the Gestapo tactics of these agencies, both of which are grossly corrupted and neither of which can function efficiently enough to fulfill their stated primary missions.

 

As Peterson knows all too well, NAIS is NOT about food safety or tracking disease in herds.  It is simply a tool designed to make independent ranching and farming so cost prohibitive, so bogged down with oppressive and restrictive regulations, it will drive family farms out of business and prevent future generations of farmers and ranchers from getting into the business. 

 

Representative Peterson never mentions the sweeping provisions in NAIS that work to protect industrialized corporate producers from bearing anything but marginal costs associated with NAIS, and provide numerous loopholes allowing them to escape the most invasive and controlling aspects of this insidious program.

 

In all of the travels Rep. Peterson has done, I suppose at state expense, he seldom if ever mentions the data collection of current personal and identifiable information being compiled by the federal and state governments.  He speaks about Premises ID as if it is some innocuous little nuisance, but never mentions that all of the premises information is carefully collected, catalogued and stored.  But don’t think you can even use a FOIA request to find out just what and how much information the government has assembled on your operation.  You can’t. And here’s why:

 

All of the databases containing all the information collected about you, your farm or ranch, the animals you have, your exact GPS location, have been moved to Canada and stored in the Oracle database program.   The server for Oracle is located in San Antonio Texas, I suppose to mislead people into thinking their records are stored here in the US also.

 

Off American soil and in the hands of another government, the information gathered about you is now accessible by bio-pirates, foreign entities and anyone who cares to pay to know,  who need this info to decide how most efficiently to drive you out of business;  So much for the unauthorized release of information.  

 

Although Peterson’s website wisely makes absolutely no mention of his NAIS promotion or advocacy, (unless he changes it today in the next five minutes) it appears Peterson has been an ambassador very busy traveling and speaking and trying to convince farmers and ranchers that NAIS is a good deal.  It isn’t; and Peterson’s gut tells him this.

 

Known as the “invisible man” around these parts, Peterson is never available, seldom locatable and when he does make those rare public appearances it is with shills planted in the audience complete with planted questions and canned answers. 

 

This just begs the question, “Who is Colin Peterson really representing?”

 

To be sure, I wouldn’t know.  What I do know along with numerous farmers, ranchers and consumers here in Minnesota, it sure isn’t us.

Group Accuses USDA of Continued Illegal NAIS Activity

Group Accuses USDA of Continued Illegal NAIS Activity;

 

Seeks Help from Congress to Protect Producers from Agency’s Unlawful Actions

 

Billings, Mont. – In a letter sent today to USDA and Congress, and copied to state veterinarians in all 50 states, R-CALF USA alleges illegal activity on the part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) with regard to the agency’s Dec. 22, 2008, memorandum that canceled Memorandum 575.19 originally issued on Sept. 22, 2008. The original memorandum would have forced mandatory premises registration under the National Animal Identification System (NAIS) upon livestock producers who participate in federal disease management programs.

 

“We are pleased that USDA canceled the September 2008 memo on the basis that the agency recognized it was improper to establish a standardized premises identification number as the sole premises identification number under the agency’s proposed NAIS without first conducting a rulemaking, as required by the Administrative Procedure Act (APA),” said R-CALF USA President/Region VI Director Max Thornsberry, a Missouri veterinarian who also chairs the group’s animal health committee.

 

“However, USDA has again violated its own regulations in the December 2008 memorandum by unlawfully mandating the use of a standardized PIN (premises identification number), which is actually an NAIS PIN, in the administration of federal disease programs,” he continued. “This action is unlawful. Until and unless the agency promulgates a rule to require the use of a standardized NAIS PIN, the agency has no authority to mandate that state animal health officials comply with the December 2008 memo.”

 

Thornsberry explained that USDA issued a final rule on July 18, 2007, to allow the use of a numbering system such as the standardized NAIS PIN to identify premises where animals are managed or held. However, the agency has not promulgated rules to implement the NAIS, and further, the agency expressly states in its final rule that use of the new numbering system (standardized, NAIS PIN) is not required by this final rule.

 

“This action (December 2008 memo) effectively converts USDA’s so-called ‘voluntary’ NAIS program into a scheme that mandates strict compliance with NAIS,” he said.

 

In the letter accusing USDA of illegal activity, R-CALF USA requested that the December 2008 memo “…immediately be canceled by the Administration, either on its own or by congressional action…and that (USDA) be directed to immediately inform each state animal health official that the agency no longer is requiring the use of the standardized NAIS PIN as a condition of producer participation in regulated animal disease programs, or for any other purpose.”

The concept of [Altered Functions]……The trouble with GPS

We all know what GPS is, right?  What a great thing this could have been and we can all see how this could protect life.  There is GPS in your new vehicle, in your cell phone, in your wireless computer, and now in many credit cards. 

 

Under the National Animal Identification System run by the USDA, your pets, your livestock and your land will be all identifiable using GPS. 

 

Google, whose services are available to the highest bidder without regard to moral or ethical concepts or even legal issues, has mapped the entire US and parts of the world, using GPS to pinpoint your house using geographical coordinates.  This mapping has been made available and rumored to have been financed by Homeland Security. 

 

If the government is successful in mandating the unconstitutional REAL ID, you will have a GPS identified internal passport that must be carried and shown on demand.  If they are successful in their push for RFID chips in human beings, they can simply locate you by keying in on your chip. 

 

The NAFTA highway, intended to split the country into three regions, will be GPS monitored.  All cars, trucks, and haulers must have GPS which will be tracked using the tracking sensors made in China and implanted along the highways. 

 

These home computers we all love so much have an ISP address that when properly keyed, gives an exact GPS location of the computer. 

 

Wal-mart, that bastion of slave labor markets, began the push a few years ago to track all products on the shelves in their stores using nano chips.  Each product chip is locatable using…..GPS.  It is almost impossible now to purchase any product of any kind that isn’t nano chipped in almost any kind of store.

 

These are just a few of the aspects of the altered function of GPS.  Instead of being a beneficial tool for protecting life, it is instead a high tech tool for surveillance and control. 

 

As it stands now, your computer, your vehicle, your cell phone, your home, your pets, your livestock, your purchases even of food, and now even some clothing, are all tracked and locatable using GPS.  The concept behind GPS and the reasons given in the marketing of GPS are in opposition to the true intent.

 

GPS is the most singular mechanism by which the government gained the capability to put us all on a grid and track our movements, at will, any time, and for no reason.  I have to wonder if the human chips they are now promoting won’t in fact have a “shut off” built into them?  Would that have the same affect as shutting off your car? 

 

Technology for the most part is a good thing.  In the wrong hands, guided by people who have evil intentions and who have an altered function in mind, it can be a hazard to us all.
