Nevertheless, U.S. citizens worry that criminals no longer have to resort toninini nuclear weapons or other science-fiction worthy tactics to overtake the grid.

A smart meter is an online utility meter that measures the consumption of water, natural gas and electricity in a home. Through wireless transmission via radio frequency (RF) wave signals, the usage data is provided to the utility company, which supposedly uses the data to “optimize” electricity rates and schedule power generation.

America captured: The intended chipping and tagging of American citizens for continual surveillance

One way or another, the corporate federal government is going to chip and tag us.  The first real effort to begin the cataloguing of the people was in 1992 when every state began collecting the dna of every newborn.  Until recently, most people had no idea this was even going on.  Here in Minnesota, not only were most parents not aware of this collection, but none were told it was an opt-in system, not an opt-out.  In other words, they had to agree to have this sample taken, but most were never informed that any samples of this kind were taken at all.  The Minnesota Health department then claimed after 45 days, it owned the dna samples and could sell them for experimentation, or other purposes.  

All dna gathered for any purpose whatsoever is data-based and uploaded not only into CODIS (the criminal database) but also to Interpol (the international data base).  Even the dna of corpses is collected and logged into the system.  The Human Genome Project was launched specifically with the intent to eventually identify each and every one of us through our DNA, and link us immediately to any and all family members; even to extended family members we might not even be aware existed.  More

Candian livestock producers successfully lured into NAIS and RFID

4 Comments

It would appear that Canadian Cattle producers have been successfully led into the trap of RFID tagging for their livestock.  Using the same phony PR used by the USDA here in the states, a corporation which is also quite active in Canadian agriculture, NAIS is alive and well and headed our way.  And you thought this dog was run out!

Bar-coded cattle ID tags de-listed July 1

By Staff

Any bar-coded dangle tags still hanging from Canadian cattle’s ears will officially become plastic jewelry effective July 1.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency, which was previously expected to de-list bar code tags as of Jan. 1, 2010, said Friday that the bar code tags will be de-listed July 1 in favour of radio frequency identification (RFID) tags.

Starting July 1, all cattle must be tagged with approved RFID tags before they move from their current locations or leave their farms of origin.

“Although this change may be an additional one- time process for some producers, the ability to easily capture information from the RFID tags will help all producers in the long run,” said Darcy Eddleston, a Paradise Valley, Alta. producer and chairman of the Canadian Cattle Identification Agency (CCIA), in a joint CFIA/CCIA release.

“We have worked with government to move forward on traceability and we believe that de- listing the bar-coded tag will advance traceability initiatives.” More

“Chief scientist Ramos Mays said the tests provide a true proof-of-principle and mitigate most of the technological risks in terms of the product’s performance. “This proves the ability to create a synthetic biometric or fake fingerprint with biocompatible, chipless RFID ink and read it through hair,” he said.

Co-founder Mark Pydynowski said during an interview Wednesday that the ink doesn’t contain any metals and can be either invisible or colored. He declined to say what is in the ink, but said he’s certain that it is 100% biocompatible and chemically inert. He also said it is safe for people and animals.”

RFID Bling For Bovines – Just In Time For The New Year

2 Comments

by: Lynn Swearingen (c) copyright 2009

Just when you thought you’d heard it all, something comes along that makes you say “Hm. I just wonder”.

While surfing around the UHF-RFID livestock world, I came across a new and snazzy tag. Trust me folks – you want to pass on this one.

While a cutie-wootie-slick-forward-looking tag can be an extra bonus in selling (riigghhtt) – this one has the stink of the National Animal Identification System (NAIS) plastered all over it. Why would one think that? Here we go (links are provided at conclusion for ease of  review):

USDA approves eTattoo from Eriginate as First Official UHF Identification Device (1) That headline should cause one to wonder and the opening comment begs for investigation:

“Eriginate Corporation announced today the approval of its eTattoo tag by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). The approval marks the first ultra-high radio frequency identification tag (UHF RFID) and the first non-low frequency tag (LF) to be approved for use with the “840” Animal Identification Number (AIN)”

Just whom is on the board of this  “Eriginate”? (2)

Why surprise surprise the Director is one Mr. Doran Junek. As his bio (3) clearly states, he has all the bells and whistles required to position this firm for the first “approved” eTattoo:

Lobbying responsibilities – check
Member of the Bovine Species Working Group for NAIS – check
Affiliation (past or present?) with Cargill – Check
“Key industry Contacts” – Check

…but that’s just my opinion.

Of course as “Advisors” (4) go, the most interesting could be Gerardo Flores of famed NASA affiliation. Nah. While his specialty could ensure that once we go “solar system wide” the critters could be properly traced, that’s a few years in the future, so lets see….here’s an interesting character. More

One of the best places to follow the money behind NAIS is Wisconsin

    Case Study: Wisconsin

    One of the best places to follow the money behind NAIS is Wisconsin, where the Wisconsin Livestock Identification Consortium (WLIC) and its partner group, the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture Trade and Consumer Protection (WDATCP)81 have managed to secure close to $7 million in federal funding and more than a million dollars in non-federal funding over the last eight years.82,83 Bolstered by a state law requiring every farm premises to be registered in a central database, these groups are serving as administrators of what amounts to a state-level pilot project for NAIS.

    The WLIC, a consortium of private industry stakeholders and government agencies, has used these federal tax dollars to fund groups that could benefit financially from NAIS. By the middle of 2005, WLIC reportedly was funding more than a dozen research projects valued at close to $400,000, with money going to the Wisconsin Pork Association,84 which currently sits on the WLIC board of directors, and Smithfield, a current member of WLIC.85

    WLIC was founded in 2002 as “a proactive, livestock industry- driven effort”86 with a mission “to create a secure, nationally compatible livestock identification system.”87 The members and affiliates of the consortium read like a laundry list of the corporate and private interests that stand to gain from a mandatory NAIS. The big animal-ID tech companies, like AgInfoLink, Digital Angel, Global Animal Management, Y-Tex and Allflex USA, are all represented as members.88

    In coalition with the Wisconsin Department of Trade and Consumer Protection, the WLIC has developed its own USDA-compliant Animal Tracking Database — one of six that the USDA considers fully functional and capable of providing traceability.89

    The push for animal tracking in Wisconsin, however, has not gone smoothly. Some farmers continue to resist registering their premises or participating in animal identification — either because of privacy or property rights concerns, or, in the case of Amish farmers, on religious grounds.90 In 2007, the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture began sending letters to dairy farmers on unregistered premises indicating their milk production licenses could be revoked if they failed to register their farms.91 This threat, which would have essentially forced non-compliant dairy farmers to go out of business, was eventually softened,92 but to critics of NAIS, it demonstrates the heavy-handed tactics that government agencies are willing to use to promote the program.

    Wisconsin DATCP proudly announces plans to target several more private property owners

  • 27673_1thThis is a public announcement of a premeditated assault on property owners in violation of the Wisconsin Constitution and individual property rights made by Donna Gibson on behalf of Wisconsin DATCP (Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection) in an interview with AgriView.    

    Why is no one pressing charges against her and other DATCP personnel and officials for making public threats and plans of harm to sovereign property owners in the state?

    On October 21, 2009 in Wisconsin Circuit Court, Polk County, Judge Molly E. Galewyrick found Pat & Melissa Monchilovich guilty of failure to register premises.   During that court proceeding and under oath, DATCP representatives admitted the program was not of benefit and probably never would be.  Still, DATCP seems quite proud of their targeting of this family, and their subsequent threats to target others in Wisconsin.

    In my opinion, this is nothing less than a threat of intended harm and the use of coercion and duress to force compliance to what is nothing more than an assault on private property rights perpetrated by state officials in violation of their offices and in violation of the Constitution of the State of Wisconsin.   It would appear that state officials launching these attacks on property owners are not aware that Wisconsin has such a document or that they are bound to work within its scope and limitations.  More

    “The potential for RFID tagging of livestock is billions yearly and the potential for radio tagging of food is in trillions a year…”

     U.S. Vs Canada Smack Down in October? 090115a2

    Not exactly how you expected to start your day is it? A little background might be in order.

    In 1990 the creation of the National Advisory Board on Animal Identification was created to begin offering livestock traceability initiatives in Canada. Not content to use the systems in place that had proven effect in cost, labor and common sense, the Advisory Board determined that streamlining through Rfid tagging and individual reporting of livestock was the way to go.

    Determining the total cost for this voluntary program over the past 19 years is impossible. I’d like to say names have been changed to protect the innocent, but it is more likely the “Program” and    Canadian Government simply don’t want the public to know the tax burden they bear. One can find the most recent funding totals $20 million over the next 3 years from The Canadian Industry Traceability Infrastructure Program. More

    Update:  As you all know the healthcare bill has now been expanded to around 2000 pages.  More than 50 new agencies and czar positions created.  And you are still going to vote an incumbent back in from either of the two major parties? 

    _________

    I actually printed off all 1069 pages of the proposed healthcare reform.  As I did not have the funds available to squander on a speed reader as our congress does so that:

    • I could claim it had been read and save money on paper and ink;    
    • Had it read so I could listen to it in fast forward while I visited with my friend across the isle;
    • I could create the impression that I actually did read and understand the bill;
    • I could get a good laugh out of the actual speed which a hired speed reader could rip through this mess without having his/her head implode.

    And then realized I had just rendered myself unable to claim “plausible deniability” by claiming I did read the bill and by doing so could not claim at a later date I did not know or understand any part of it.

     With these things in mind I did this:

    • Actually spent two days trying to decipher the 460+ changes to US Codes and Statutes,
    • What those USC changes meant.  
    • How the change was actually going to impact health access and costs controls.
    • How all this was to be accomplished; and finally try to figure out:
    • How the hell anyone was going to administer this massive mess of doublespeak, backtracking, code changing, strikethrough, insertions, added before, added after, remove this section, insert in this section, and all the other legislative gibberish commonly used to hide the hidden intent of most of what emanates from that body of royal jackasses that exists as our congress.

    EU to Require RFID Card for Gasoline Purchased at the Pump After 2009

    11 Comments

    From my source in Switzerland comes the revelation that the EU is planning to institute, effective after 2009, a law that would require all EU citizens to pay for their gasoline with an RFID card. No card, no gas.

    The original story on this appeared on the German website Die Goldseiten.de (The Gold Site, a financial news site) this morning. My source informed me that the site is copyright protected (you can’t right-click copy any of the articles), so he had to re-type the entire article into Google Translator for me and it came out rather garbled, but the gist of it was fairly clear.

    Among the provisions of the draconian development is a plan to eliminate the practice of shopping for the cheapest gasoline by going to where it is sold cheapest. This is to be eliminated altogether and all gasoline across Europe would be priced the same and available only to RFID card holders.

    You may wonder why you should care about what the Europeans are having to put up with, but consider that what is happening now in the United States was happening in Europe a decade or more ago and the pace at which it is happening, both in the EU and here is now accelerating almost daily. Eventually, the same restrictions to your daily life will begin to appear here at home.

    Pet chipping should never be mandated by government

    Local animal owners no longer required to chip their pets

    SAN MARCOS – The City Council of San Marcos, Texas, unanimously voted last week to rescind a mandatory pet microchipping ordinance that would have required all pets within city limits to receive an injected implant. The 7 to 0 vote was made at the City Council meeting on March 31, 2009. All members were present and voted, including Mayor Susan Clifford-Narvaiz, according to San Marcos Communications Director Melissa Millecam.

    The chipping ordinance was originally adopted last December and was
    slated to take effect on April 1st. The measure had sparked months of
    heated opposition and repeated demonstrations by local residents,
    including a protest and candlelight vigil at the March 3rd City Council
    meeting that drew a crowd of over 300 people.

    “We applaud the San Marcos City Council for this decision,” said local
    activist Lisa Marie Coppoletta, who helped organize the March 3rd rally.
    “Chipping should be a voluntary decision between pet owners and their
    veterinarians. It should never be mandated by the government.”

    The Battle In The States: Freedom Vs Protection

    Leave a comment

    Mark Lerner, Director, Stop Real ID Coalition   www.stoprealidcoalition.com <   http://www.stoprealidcoalition.com

    http://www.stoprealidcoalition.com

    Please pass this along to those you know.

    Across the nation, state legislatures are struggling to take back their Constitutional rights as they also seek ways to protect us from outside threats. This has led to some near schizophrenic legislative sessions with laws swinging widely from left to right.

    Making it more difficult to get a handle on the situation is the fact that there has been an outgrowth of near “rabid”

    anti-immigration groups that have sprung up demanding near-Hitler-style tactics to “fix” the problem. While the situation is certainly serious and demands action, these groups openly admit that they are willing to surrender their liberties if that is what it takes to end illegal immigration. They may deeply regret that cavalier dismissal of liberty. Once lost, it is rarely regained.

    To address these issues, three very distinct, but widely variant legislative actions have appeared in the states.

    First, legislation dealing with protecting the integrity of the Tenth Amendment and state sovereignty has been introduced across the nation, passing in at least 21 states. The states are reacting to the frightening growth of the federal government through anti-terrorist legislation such as the Patriot Act and Real ID, as well as the outrageous spending included in the bailout and stimulus bills.

    Second, to address the illegal immigration issue, legislation in many states would provide state law enforcement with the ability to share information through direct electronic access. Many law-enforcement agencies are eagerly supporting such legislation. Yet, this type of legislation clearly contradicts the intent of the states sovereignty effort.

    Third, again racing back to the other side to protect personal privacy from federal surveillance, there is legislation introduced to prohibit the collection of biometric samples/data, social security numbers and the use of RFID chips in state driver’s licenses.

    One might ask, what do these pieces of legislation have to do with one another? They each go to the heart of a battle being waged across our country to decide how much Constitutional power the federal government has to collect, retain and share the personal information of each citizen, and how much power it has to force states to provide it?

    Tenth Amendment legislation is exactly what the name implies

    that states have Constitutionally-guaranteed rights and powers. It puts the federal government on notice that states will not act as its surrogates. The legislation unequivocally tells the federal government that its power comes from the citizens and the states and that federal powers are limited and defined rather than unlimited and arbitrary.*Fusion Centers*

    As for those patriots who believe the illegal immigration is so dire that liberty should be thrown on the bonfire, perhaps they need to better understand what they are demanding.

    Legislation introduced in several state legislatures, and currently in debate, allows state and local law-enforcement agencies to have direct access to one another’s databases. Some of the anti-immigration patriots might see it is as prudent legislation until one takes a closer look.

    Most states now have Fusion Centers. Fusion Centers were originally intended to allow local and state law-enforcement to work alongside federal officers so that activity suspected of being terrorist related could be identified and responded to by all three law enforcement entities in a coordinated manner. Fusion Centers have representatives of all three working side-by-side in one office.

    Fusion Centers are funded primarily by the federal government. Some believe them to be an effective tool to fight terrorism with little that one could find objectionable. The problem is, Fusion Centers have overstepped their intended purpose. This is typical when dealing with the issue of technology and invasive databases. Mission creep is just too easy.

    In state after state we see Fusion Centers focusing on /all /suspected criminal activity, including misdemeanors. Some would ask you to believe that the mountain of information about citizens being accumulated actually stays within the borders of a state unless a citizen is suspected of terrorist activity. However, the Fusion Center in Oklahoma has been directed to develop procedures for the sharing of information with the FBI and DHS.

    This means that direct electronic access is not limited to just state law enforcement agencies and departments. Since local, state and federal authorities are working together, there is no plausible reason to believe federal law enforcement will not gain access to all information a state law enforcement or local law enforcement authority would have.

    Farmers Under Attack…USDA and FDA acting as mercenaries for biotech industry

    Farmers Under Attack…

     

    This urgent message from our correspondent, Linn Cohen-Cole:

    ———-

    We have less than two weeks to stop the take over the farms and ranches.

    We need to rally people immediately. 

    The new administration is pushing new farm controls through Congress as fast as possible and have coordinated the bills so there will be no debate and the committee meetings are closed.  

    Transparency, change, undoing Bush’s regulations, giving the public time to comment, grassroots anything?  Our entire food system and thus our health is being decided without the public knowing and those who do know have zero access and the media is absent and they are moving at warp speed to sew this up.

    Would you put these out, in this order, showing the article as you do so people are more likely to read it?  They are imperfect but the closest I’ve come to explaining how the game is going to be played.  No direct, frontal assault on organic farming but an insidious process of “infecting” organic farming…  

    Example: imagine Joel Salatin’s wonderful organic farm under the direction of the USDA, with detailed instructions on what he must feed and when, how he must medically “treat” his animals and with what, what he must “spray” and when, … you get the picture.  These bills will industrialize all farms and insure the farmers are forced to buy chemicals and drugs.  Organic is dead.  As well as human control over the food supply.  As well as health.

    Schoolmarm approach to punishing farmers out of farming.

    What is NAIS ~~How Do We Protect Ourselves?

     

    Monday, February 09, 2009

     by: Barbara Minton, Natural Health Editor(NaturalNews)

     

    At first glance, many readers of Natural News will think the National Animal Identification System (NAIS) is nothing that concerns them because they eat only plant based foods. However, NAIS is only one part of a much bigger issue. The implementation of NAIS directly threatens the ability of everyone to eat locally grown, organic, and sustainable foods, including fruits and vegetables. NAIS is the first step in the final round of the takeover and regulation of all agricultural products, including plant based foods and supplements. Once NAIS is implemented it will be easy for growers of all agricultural products to be pushed around, intimidated and finally taken over by big agribusiness and its best friend, the government. NAIS is the next step in the destruction of the freedom to eat as we choose and enhance our health with supplements.

    If you are opposed to the loss of liberty and the expansion of government tyranny that NAIS represents, your help is urgently needed to block the next step in its implementation. Comments must be received at the USDA by March 16, 2009. Specific information and a link to sample comments appear at the end of this article.

    Article also incudes:

    NAIS hands over production of food to factory farms

    What is NAIS?

    NAIS will result in a decrease in food safety

    Costs are high and benefits are low with NAIS

    It is critical that the USDA and Congress hear from the millions of people who will be adversely affected by the NAIS program. This includes animal owners, consumers who care about locally produced, organic, and sustainable foods, taxpayers who object to wasteful government programs and expanding government bureaucracy, advocates for a safe food system, and anyone who wishes to continue to have access to nourishing food and supplements.

    NAIS: USDA plans to seize land and livestock

    Leave a comment

    A January 09, 2009 article touting the National Animal Identification System, by the USDA, is nothing less than creative advertising meant to sell an unwanted and unneeded product.  If the need for such a system was real, it would be an admittance by USDA, the agency which swallows up millions of taxpayer dollars each year, was not capable of performing the tasks assigned to it.  Isn’t that fraud?

     

    USDA never alludes to its ignoring of Johnes disease which is the scourge of bovine herds.  No attempts by USDA to eradicate the disease or to stop its spread among herds while they attempt to convince livestock producers NAIS is a good and necessary tool.

     

    [In 2004 the USDA estimated the Johne’s infection rate to be at 20%. Today, reliable estimates reveal over 60% of the nation’s dairy herds are co-mingled with Johne’s positive cows, a 300% increase in only four years, but the USDA doesn’t feel this is a problem worth their time. The USDA appears comfortable with this major epidemic, and has no plan for acceleration about the problem.

     

    The USDA, with their own data, estimates an annual financial loss as a result of Johne’s in dairy herds to be $200,000,000. For one year the Johne’s loss is nearly as much as USDA has invested in promoting NAIS during the past 6 years. This annual loss is more than 1000% over the eradication costs of the US Avian Influenza fiasco, a statistic USDA tosses out to tout the serious need of an NAIS mandatory system.]

    http://www.naissucks.com/index.php?con=nais_not_about_disease

     

    This one issue alone, because of its scope and financial costs is the clear indicator that the program known as NAIS is NOT about tracking disease in US herds. Its is plainly and simply a tool being used to gain control and access to food production and to the land which is being used as collateral on the debt incurred bailing out Wall Street. 

     

    If this claim of protecting the food supply were valid, why would there be any need to register your property with a Premises ID?  Simple vet tags now used identify not only the livestock, but also the vet who issued the tag and by extension the farm or ranch that obtained the vet certification.  No processor will accept delivery on a non-vet certified shipment of beef.  So where is this big national threat of not being able to track it? 

     

    According to Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) of the US Department of Agriculture (USDA):

     

    About 15% of all beef consumed in the United States is imported.  Imported beef is either processed separately of MIXED WITH DOMESTIC product. (emphasis, mine)

    http://www.nap.edu/openbook.php?record_id=10528&page=13

     

    As USDA knows all too well, contamination occurs at the point of processing at least 90% of the time, not in production.  USDA also knows that countries importing to the US many times either do not have the same health standards, or fail to implement health and sanitation standards, yet the agency has failed to prohibit imports on any level.

     

    USDA with its proclivity for pandering to mega-corporations made sure there were provisions in the NAIS to relieve corporate producers from experiencing any significant costs that might affect their bottom lines.  For these special groups, livestock can be registered in lots and fees paid as if there was only one head.  The true costs of NAIS will be passed on to the small and independent producers.  The only real intent of the USDA is to eradicate these independents and allow corporations to seize control of production.

     

    IF NAIS was simply a disease tracking tool, why do our pets have to be chipped and tracked also?  Was someone planning to start slaughtering and selling dogs and cats?  USDA wants every domestic animal, of any kind, owned for any reason to be RFID chipped.  Now what the hell would domestic pets have to do with stopping contamination or disease in livestock herds meant for human consumption.

    The obvious false scenario’s planted wherever anyone will give USDA ink space are indicative of an agency on a mission for which it has neither the constitutional nor lawful authority to impose.  NAIS has nothing to do with protecting the food supply or tracking disease.  It is simply one more brick in the wall along with REAL ID and the total surveillance society being assembled a piece at a time by various agencies which have neither authority or rights to do so.

    NO NAIS…NOT NOW….NOT EVER!

    Nevada Caves to Real ID

    5 Comments

    Apparently it doesn’t matter what the several states have told the federal government regarding Real ID; the feds are just going to go ahead and force us all to carry a chipped ID card, whether our states said “no” to it or not.

    According to this article, one of the states that has caved in to such mafia tactics is Nevada – one of the three states in which Ron Paul placed a strong second in last year’s primaries. Apparently, it doesn’t matter what the people of Nevada want, either.

    As the article states, “SB52 contains a variety of provisions designed to implement the Real ID Act, including spelling out the documents an individual will need to get a Real ID license. The legislation isn’t optional since the requirements are imposed by federal law.

    The Real ID Act requires that, within the next two years, all states require drivers to show proof of their identity and their legal right to be in the U.S. and issue a drivers’ license which has security features  designed to prevent identity theft.”

    Mandatory Equine Licenses Enacted

    2 Comments

    by Darol Dickinson~~ 1-26-09

    The New Hampshire Municipal Association proudly touts a new special “equine” tax that will increase jobs and create new state income from the estimated 24,000 equine in New Hampshire. A licensing of each and every equine is proposed to be effective July 1, 2009. This is a tax of $25 per horse (equine) and in cases of refusal to comply, the state adds another $50 to slap the cowboys in line. It isn’t a smoke screen about export, food safety or disease, it is just a new state income.

    Beyond the state lines of New Hampshire, the USDA has been at war with livestock owners to coerce enrollment in the National Animal Identification System (NAIS), a multi-billion dollar scheme to computerize, number and create a permanent surveillance system on all US livestock. This plot is the mother of all numbering scenarios. With the commerce of all US livestock, at the end of three years the total computer movements recorded, and paid for by animal owners, would eclipse the number of the earth’s human population.

    These draconian sounding tax collection schemes, although totally putrid to animal lovers, are completely sane to bureau-rats who’s salary increases, retirement and weekly sustenance depend on innovative ways to transfer wealth from the regulated to the regulators.

    Just down the trail to New York 88 new taxes have been deviously hatched by the lowly staff of Governor David Paterson to help pay for his flawed $15.4 billion budget gap. Hookers who have enjoyed a tax break on work clothes worth less than $110, won’t any more. An 18% increase on sodas is proposed; higher gas tax, increased taxi tax, boats, cars, rental car taxes, cigars, iPods, etc. Plush governmental cubicles high in the New York sky are filled with think-tank devious minds searching the alleys for a new tax source to increase the regulator’s revenue. New York Conservative Party Chairman, Michael Long says, “You’re (Gov. Paterson) sending notice to the people of New York that we really don’t want you here.”

    Tribute ideas like the USDA’s NAIS, horse licensing and the New York taxationists search the world over to locate new and innovative collection methods. It is one thing to develop a new tax and another to collect it. That is where enforcements are enacted with fines, late penalties, and refusal-to-comply fees.

    In Australia a tax called the National Livestock Identification System (NLIS) has been operational for several years. Herds of computer toting Biosecurity Officers now stalk the Outback to locate animal owners out of compliance; conviction is up to a $4000 fine for not registering a livestock premises.

    The love of companion animals is multiplying in affection world wide. What a sadistic way to create funding, to assess a new tribute for pets, livestock and beloved family animals. Animal licensing is the contemporary government way to tax not just the animal, but the joy and profit of livestock ownership.

    In New Hampshire it starts out,

     

     

    In the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand Nine, and then explains for Equine Licenses. Amend RSA 435, Sec 41, etc. In a scoop shovel it is proposed, $25 per year, every year, and each animal must have a number. The number process approved by the USDA is a computer chip, surgically injected under the skin by a USDA licensed veterinarian at a fee of $75 to $125 per equine, depending on how many in the remuda.

    The Fiscal Impact: “The Department of Agriculture, Markets, and Food and the New Hampshire Municipal Association estimates this bill will increase state and local revenue, and increase local expenditures by an indeterminable amount in FY 2010 and each year thereafter. There will be no fiscal impact on county revenue or state and county expenditures.”

    On July 1, will the horse owners of New Hampshire migrate to other states or will a large population of equine feces machines establish residence on the Concord State Capitol lawn?

    This may be the time and place to rethink the New Hampshire motto: “LIVE FREE OR DIE.”

    First Australia, the NAIS, the New Hampshire Equine Licenses—-all innovations of hostage taxation, which is a spreading livestock disease in itself. The mystery of expanding government is not how it works, but how in the world to make it stop!

    IS THE CURE WORSE THAN THE DISEASE?

    Would Real ID, Biometrics, RFID and International Data Sharing Really Stop Terrorism? “We have been busy continuing to go state to state to ensure our legislation opposing the Real ID Act 2005 is filed and introduced in as many states as possible. We have also included Representative Charles Key’s, State of Oklahoma, Tenth Amendment legislation that stands up for states’ rights. In some states we have gone much further. We have proposed legislation that would forbid the collection of biometric samples, biometric data and social security numbers. The only exception to the collection of social security numbers is when the social security number is needed for income or wage reporting purposes. The legislation applies equally to state agencies/departments and to groups/organizations. Further, legislation opposing the use of RFID technology in identification documents and participation in AAMVA’s (American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators) DLA (Driver’s License Agreement) which would create a single jurisdiction of the United States, Canada and Mexico for the sharing of citizens information contained in motor vehicle databases has been filed.” (end excerpt) Read full article here:

    ACTION ALERT on NAIS: USDA is Moving Fast!

    “Excerpted from the full aricle:

    In regard to advancing NAIS, the four most important aspects of the USDA/APHIS Jan. 13, 2009 rule are:

    1. As of the effective date of the final rule, the NAIS Premises ID Number (PIN) would be the only form of PIN allowed for certain official uses.
    (Note on timing — the comment period is open until March 16, 2009. Then USDA reviews the comments and at some point can issue a final rule. That date of issuance would be the effective date for the mandatory assignments of the NAIS Premises IDs.

    However, a large number of unfavorable comments might result in the postponement, or even retraction or cancellation, of the rule.)

    2. Although the system announced in this proposed rule supposedly permits the continued use of the National Uniform Eartagging System (traditionally, metal tags) and a “premises-based numbering system,” in fact, these systems would be used in the same way as NAIS Animal Identification Numbers. The older forms of eartags and individual IDs would all be connected into the NAIS Premises ID database through the Animal Identification Number Management System (“AINMS,” the USDA system that keeps track of what individual animal identification number is assigned to what farm or ranch). In other words,

    under the system of this proposed rule, anytime a farmer/rancher has metal tags applied to livestock (such as for TB or brucellosis testing), the farm/ranch will be placed into the NAIS Premises ID system and the numbers on the tags will be tied to the farm/ranch through the USDA’s AINMS system.

    3. Some requirements are being added for official eartags and these new requirements might make it very difficult or even impossible to obtain metal tags instead of the NAIS tags.

    The additional requirements include a “U.S. shield” printed on each tag, and tags must be “tamper-resistant and have a high retention rate in the animal.” The APHIS Administrator must approve all tags. The NAIS tags now available already meet these standards. It is not clear that metal tags have ever been judged by these standards, so it is possible that the APHIS Administrator could fail to approve metal and other non-NAIS tags.

    Also, tag manufacturers will have a clear self-interest in abandoning production of cheap metal tags in favor of expensive NAIS RFID tags, so non-NAIS forms of tags may quickly become extinct.

    4. The addition of a definition of the AINMS to the animal-disease program rules in the Code of Federal Regulations is huge.

    Previously the AINMS has only been defined in the non-rule NAIS informational documents (Draft Strategic Plan, User Guide, Business Plan, etc.) so it did not have any defined legal status.

    Now this proposed rule adds a definition of the AINMS and also provides that eventually the AINMS will be used to tie all types of “official” tags — not just the NAIS 15-digit tags — to a NAIS registered premises. The proposed rule accomplishes essentially a mandatory system for the first 2 elements of NAIS — NAIS premises ID and NAIS individual animal ID. The only difference from the original NAIS plan is that now the metal tags and other traditional forms of individual ID have become additional forms of numbering/tagging that are used as part of NAIS.

    Note that even if your state has passed a law to keep NAIS “voluntary,” that will not necessarily save you from this rule. The Federal Register notice specifically states: “All State and local laws and regulations that are in conflict with this rule will be preempted.” (p. 1638.)

    However, if you are working to pass a state law limiting NAIS in the present legislative session, keep working — such a law could still be very important. It shows the opposition of animal owners and consumers to NAIS, which may help get the rule postponed or rescinded. In addition, the question of whether this rule would pre-empt contrary state laws in all circumstances may someday be open to legal challenge.” (end quote)

    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.

    NAIS — the Fourth Component……What USDA doesn’t want you to know.

    NAIS — the Fourth Component
            by Darol Dickinson
            July 11, 2008

    USDA Investigator

    The National Animal Identification System (NAIS) has been alleged as a three component program, however now a fourth component facade is starting to reveal itself.

    The first step of NAIS is premises enrollment, next animal identification, and then coast to coast 48 hour animal tracing.

    USDA Under Secretary for Marketing and Regulatory Programs, Bruce I. Knight has promised that the NAIS program is easy to enroll and totally voluntary on the federal level, “if . . . enough livestock owners enroll so it does not have to go mandatory.”

    The NAIS program has distributed thousands of “selling” USDA press releases quoting Knight. The constant controversy of NAIS has placed the Knight name among the top ten Internet bureaucrats according to Google, with Bruce Knight or Bruce I. Knight showing up over 17,000,000 times.

    The fourth Component is meticulously touched by Knight, “If USDA decides to make all or parts of the NAIS mandatory, APHIS will follow the normal rulemaking process.”  With rules, laws, inspections, taxes, regulations, or licensing comes the fourth component……Enforcement.

    Enforcement of NAIS is not a happy subject especially when the first component is still not setting well with the majority of producers.  However, it is a dead serious issue for animal owners who want to know what new enforcements are involved, and their price tag, before they permanently enroll.

    In 2007 the US spent nearly one trillion dollars (from taxes and borrowed funds) in regulation enforcements, policing, investigations, and mandatory compliances.  Although this was a huge expense to the citizenry, the fines, collections, penalties, licenses, fees and private property confiscations from all law violations was an equally swelling amount; a number impossible to locate from federal published data.

    The current “rule making process” for USDA is found on line at Cornell University Law School, Legal Information Institute, U.S. Code., Title 7 >Chapter 109> 8313.   Penalties. #8313 

    (b) Civil Penalties, (1) In general (A)

      (i) $50,000 in the case of any individual, except that the civil penalty may not exceed $1000 in the case of an initial violation of this chapter by an individual moving regulated articles not for monetary gain;
      (ii) $250,000 in the case of any other person for each violation; and
      (iii) $500,000 for all violations adjudicated in a single proceeding.

    Penalties appropriate to the violation is a cornerstone fundamental of the US judicial system.  Enforcement is totally capricious with USDA.  One could be fined in county court $1000 for a 70 mph speed violation through a school zone, yet $50,000 for crossing a state line with one number incorrect on a USDA issued livestock health certificate—for a perfectly healthy child’s pony!  Dr. Max Thornsberry, President of R-CALF USA says, “The USDA is a run away agency out of control, with total disregard for U.S. citizens.”

    Producers have been mystified by the massive amount of grants and funds (cooperative agreements) doled by USDA to get NAIS closer to full mandatory mode.  The nearly $150,000,000 invested to promote enrollment looks large, but ….. it would only take 300 violations of $500,000 each to quickly earn it back.

    US leaders watch other government trends closely in creating new laws and taxation.  Europe has been a leader in pioneering thought for US policy.  Government animal numbering systems have been urged in a few countries prior to the marketing of NAIS in the US.  Australia is the only country to have implemented electronic tagging and tracking as is proposed by the USDA.  Australia is a prototype for enforcement also.

    Stephen Blair, a Director of the Angus Society of Australia was recently fined $17,300.  He was prosecuted by Australian Minister McDonald for moving cattle from one of his ranches wearing  ear tags from his other ranch to a livestock auction. No diseased or stolen livestock were involved. It was a matter of a government rule violation.  This is a small example of the enforcement USDA could wield over US livestock producers if NAIS was exacted mandatory.

    Part of the title for Bruce Knight, is “REGULATORY PROGRAMS.”  This probably helps explain his tigerish priorities for the income generating fourth component of NAIS—ENFORCEMENTS.

    USDA enforcements are now, and will be a coerced obligation of all licensed USDA veterinarians.  Vets will be required to report all non compliance of their valued clients or be subject to immediate licensing reviews.  The USDA/APHIS policing division is the Investigative and Enforcement Services (IES) with headquarters in Raleigh, NC; Fort Collins, CO; and Riverdale, MD.  IES boasts of increasing thousands of “clients” with a 51% increase in case load and “more than a threefold increase in the dollar value of civil penalties” in one recent year. To enforce the ever increasing number of regulations, the government seeks to make ordinary citizens into their enforcers. Even today all neighbors, farm employees and friend or foe associates are encouraged on the IES web site to “Report potential violations, please contact IES.” Wisconsin tried to use bulk milk haulers to enforce NAIS against Amish dairy farmers in 2007. The Fourth Component is operational and extremely aggressive.

    The Texas Animal Health Commission (TAHC) printed an information flyer to dispel negative NAIS exaggerations.  Question: Reports say you’re going to charge $1000 a day for not participating if it is mandatory.  Answer: The TAHC is a regulatory agency and has administrative penalty provisions in it’s law as a recourse for persons who refuse to comply.

    The Fourth Component is Enforcements  It can be disastrously expensive.  The majority of US livestock producers don’t like the thought of imprisonment and exorbitant fines.

    NAIS, when mandatory, as proposed by USDA, will require 100% computer movement documentation at the full expense of livestock owners.  In a three year period the total NAIS computer movement  numbers in the USA will more than eclipse the number of all people living on the entire planet earth. The whopping magnitude of this federal numbering burden will require a giant increase in USDA employees, facilities, and, of course IES will explode with new “clients.”
    Every livestock producer is encouraged to study the many intricate details of NAIS.  The large majority of livestock producers refuse to enroll their premises in NAIS.  Oppose NAIS now, rather than when it becomes scurrilously mandatory.  There is a small amount of time remaining to politically react.

    We picked this up on www.spychips.com.  This video is dated 2003. 

    The video shows the implanting of RFID chips in clothing tagged to a customer number and facial recognition.  If this doesn’t give you the creeps about REAL ID and the intent to track every movement we make, I don’t know what will. 

    Take a few minutes and watch how this works and then ask yourself how many pieces of clothing you may have purchased containing the hidden plastic strip in the labels.

    “Where and when that can of coke was created, where it was transported to, how long it sat on the shelf, who bought it, when they drank it and where it is within your bin to be re-cycled… The product will speak to its RFID readers who in turn via the internet will signal advertising messages to be sent back to that consumer. All that needs to happen is to link you to the product. If an Oystercard or Barclaycard, which in essence is a backdoor national ID card to avoid mass consumer panic, hasn’t raised alarm bells, then the prospect of chipping every single person on the planet should chill your blood. Yes, I do mean putting a microchip inside your body.

    RFIDThink about it. Whatever your interests are, whatever purchases you have made, whatever your consumption habits, whatever your travelling habits, whatever communication methods you use, it is all going to be ‘listened to’ and tracked without wires and ultimately signal an advertisement directly personal to you – no matter which digital device you are in front of at any specific time, anywhere in the world; your mobile phone, your PC/laptop, your television screen, your GPS screen in your car, or the digital billboard you just happen to be passing.

    Am I saying this loud and clear?

    This is not science fiction, it is marketing fact and just a matter of time.” (end excerpt)

    DNA collection….Why do they want it?

    2 Comments

    I wrote recently concerning the collection of newborn DNA that has been going on virtually under the radar for the last ten years.  The article produced a major response from parents from all over the country who had no idea that they had signed anything agreeing to the testing.  The research for that article produced some other information that should be of interest.  Marti

    The Military Lawyer

    Headquarters: Department of the Army

    Excerpted page 1:

     

    As of December 2002, the Repository, now known as the “Armed Forces Repository of Specimen Samples for the Identification of Remains,”6 contained the DNA of approximately 3.2 million service members.7   According to a recent DOD directive, the “provision of specimen samples by military members shall be mandatory.”8 The direction to a soldier, sailor, airman, or marine to contribute a DNA sample is a lawful order which, if disobeyed, subjects the service member to prosecution under the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ).9 If convicted at court-martial for the offense of violating a lawful general order, the service member carries the lifelong stigma of a federal felony conviction, and faces a maximum punishment of a dishonorable discharge, confinement for two years, total forfeiture of all pay and allowances, and reduction to the lowest enlisted grade.1

    http://www.loc.gov/rr/frd/Military_Law/pdf/07-08-2003.pdf

     

    I can understand the concept that this database could be used for battlefield identification, but knowing our history of leaving our dead and prisoners of war behind to facilitate the appeasement of other interests I do wonder why the Pentagon is keeping the DNA stored in a database for 75 years.  As the excerpt above shows, the DNA samples are not voluntary and there is no right to have the samples destroyed when military service ends.    

     

    This database of 3.2 million military members is routinely accessed and shared with law enforcement among other entities.  This is the CODIS database that is the result of linking unrelated databases.  Military DNA data is merged with criminal data, medical data, genealogical data, newborn DNA data, insurance data, and multiple other applications crossing state and international lines.  And yes, Virginia, this information is shared with foreign governments.

     

    The DNA of individuals arrested is now collected routinely, even on misdemeanor cases and merged with collected databases from the military and then merged with international databases.

     

    Ownership of the military DNA repository contents resides with the government.  This means they can use it for whatever purpose they deem appropriate.  The combination of surveillance, biometrics, and video camera’s along with facial recognition are now combined with DNA databases to form an identifiable file on almost anyone and everyone. The representative of the repository sites the new found ability to implement routine mass surveillance of large segments of the population without the need for warrants or formal investigations.   

     

     

    It would seem that since so many of us are repelled by the idea of being forced to comply with invasive RFID chips, or other biometric identifiers, the government has found some really innovative ways to ID and spy on us at will, and at the same time to collect body tissues and samples that identify not only who we are, but whom we came from.  Entire families can now be identified going forward and backward for generations. Why would our government, or any government for that matter find this necessary?

     

    As it turns out, the same government that has denounced stem cell research and refuses to fund it, is at the same time allowing and funding fetal tissue research through the Department of Defense.   It is the same government that is conducting bio-weapons development with an eye on targeting specific DNA traits that include ethnicity.  It is the same government that has established bio labs across the country including in many of our universities, engaging in the development of ever more lethal strains of weaponized diseases including pandemic producing viruses.    

     

    The newborn database is only part of a larger scheme to assemble a multi-national DNA database that will encompass every individual, not only in our country, but in every country in the world. 

     

    One has to wonder what the end objective is.  DNA is so specific to the individual, that this information should not be shared or contributed unless specifically looking for disease markers, or in other specific instances.  The idea that it is being actively collected, with no real explanation being given for the true purpose, is at best, unsettling. 

     

    If anyone out there has any conclusive evidence that would indicate that there is a legitimate objective in this collection of DNA, other than identifying dead military personnel, I would like to see it.  As it is, I can’t find anything other than what relates to government sponsored surveillance and spying.

     

    Anyone??

    Frankenstein Science, Government and You….Revisited

    1 Comment

    I orignally wrote and posted this article in May of 2008.  At the time, people from across the country wrote to say that I was crazy and didn’t know what I was talking about.  Many people wrote (LOL!) at the end of their correspondence.

    Guess who’s laughing now?  Marti

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    While I would like to believe that only now, in this particular time period, has any government shown such disdain for its own common population, I know it isn’t true.  Historically, every government has come to the conclusion that only it should be preserved and that everyone outside of the government entity is expendible; eventually seen as unnecessary.  That time has come for Americans. 

    With the exception of the obscenely wealthy, the corporately connected or those willing to sell their soul for a chance to avoid extermination, we have all been slated for mass erasure or a lifetime of poverty induced slavery. More

    National Animal Indentification System

    Leave a comment

    My dog Milo has his own page here on the site.  I haven’t been as attentive to his column as I should have been, but he isn’t saying much these days anyway.  I am however concerned about the RFID chip that was forcibly inserted into his neck before I was allowed to bring him home.  No chip….no dog.  As Milo was a birthday gift from my close friends who wanted so much to replace my beloved springer spaniel, Millie who died after 16 years, I had no choice but to accept Milo with the tracker in him.

    I realize that after the disasterous Katrina, that thousands of pets went unclaimed or were never found.  I can surely see how this little chip would be useful in locating him should we become seperated for any reason, but something about not having a choice about the matter bothered me……so off I went researching what I could find about tracking pets…….which led me to CAFTA…..which led me to other things I wish I didn’t know.

    Under provisions of CAFTA, the National Animal Identification System (NAIS) was established.  Please note that NAIS says ANIMALS, not “family pets” etc.  CAFTA sets up a system whereby every animal located any place in the CAFTA countries must be chipped and tracked from “FARM to FORK” (please don’t eat your pets)  Every chicken, pig, cow, horse, duck, goose, turkey or any animal kept as a pet or potential food source must be RFID’d and a fee must be paid per head, for food sources. 

    The average fee per head of chicken is $14.00 and the price goes up for the fee per livestock type. 

    This means that family farmers, people who raise a few chickens for their eggs or meat, who might raise a couple of hogs for slaughter, or beef, or whatever your choice is, must pay this fee to continue to have these animals (food resources) that must now be tracked in order to protect the national food supply….”national security” of course.  The government wants to be able to account for what you have, where it is, and whether or not you have consumed it or it just died.  And you must provide proof!

    Supposedly this is all being done so that the unhealthy animals don’t enter the food supply.  So if I have this right, we can import tainted food including fish from China, Viet Nam and other countries,  and continue to deal with them without forcing them to subject their animals to this system or inspecting or registering their livestock, but home growers here must submit?  Growing for private use will not interfer with the national food stock.

    Reading on through the NAIS system I found that private use growers must pay the fee per head up to 30,000 head.  Do the math on that one!  This is of course, unless you are a corporate AG food producer…..then, after you reach the 30,000 mark….and they all do!…you pay a fee only for ONE head.  This means if you have 20 chickens you keep for your families use it will cost you $280.00 per year to register them, most likely forcing you to get rid of them (or hopefully it will).  BUT! if you are a big corporate AG business you will pay only the orignal $14.00 as though you have only one chicken.  The same goes for cows, pigs etc.  Oh! And big AG doens’t have to have all their livestock located in one place, it can be spread over various farms in various states and thats okay!

    How many of you out there who grow for private use have received the Agricultural Census and dutifully filled it out?  Then had agents come to your farm or home and demand that you RFID the animals and pay the fees?  Believe me it is happening.  When the Agricultural Census comes……put it in the trash where it belongs.  It is none of the governments business what you are growing for your own use.

    Why do they want to know?

    Experts all over the world are predicting a food crisis this summer.  This is not an accidental incident.  This has been very carefully set into motion.  The food crisis will not affect just third world countries somewhere “over there”.  Its set to happen right here at home as it spreads around the globe.  Consider these things:

    We entered the Civil Assistance Plan with Canada last month in anticipation of the coming food crisis predicted to hit the east coast first.  Canada’s military are training now to patrol our streets.

    CAFTA attempts to control all food and animal production even for private non-commercial use by RFID’ing all livestock……so that it can be located, confiscated and most likely destroyed.

    Congress is now advocating using the United Nations mandate of “Stamping out”…..meaning they can claim your little chickens have some kind of disease that is a threat (you have no way of proving they don’t) and not only kill of your little flock but every living animal in large radius around your property.  Same goes if they say a wild animal has some mysterious disease…….they can now kill off every bird and animal and fish stock in the area……all to protect you of course!  And leave you without any source of food other than what they give you. If they give you…..

    The Security Enhancement Act of 2003 (Patriot 2) makes it a felony to have any more than a weeks worth of food or supplies in the event of a national emergency…..which can be declared at any time by the president even if he is the only one to perceive one. (Congress can’t review the decision for six months)

    So why was my Milo chipped?  I have no intentions of consuming him for any reason.  Because it is widely accepted that people are emotionally tied to their pets and this was a test run and desensitizer to get us all accustomed to the idea of RFID tracking and chipping…….even in our own bodies.  If they could get us to willingly chip our beloved pets by showing us all the lost and unclaimed pets after Katrina, we aren’t far from allowing them to do the same to our children and our selves. 

    Milo’s chip is registered to me.  Even if I left here, that I would leave him behind is unlikely.  Locate his chip and you have located me.  Unless of course I can find someone to remove it for me.

    REAL ID vs. YOU!

    2 Comments

    One of the most invasive and intrusive Acts passed by congress was the attachment of the REAL ID act to a non-related spending bill.  REAL ID, which could not pass as a stand alone bill because of its intent to tag us all like cattle, was also passed in violation of the enacting charter of Homeland Security which expressly prohibits the establishment of any kind of national ID, (even if you call it a domestic passport) by HSD.

    REAL ID is promoted as just another weapon to fight terrorism, with US citizens apparently topping the list of suspected terrorists.  For some reason, HSD can longer be sure of who we are unless we submit to RFID tracking either by implanted chip or by RFID enabled ID cards. 

    I would suggest that HSD check with the infamous IRS…..they seem to have no difficulty in identifying any one of us and persecuting and prosecuting us……unless of course you are in that elite class of individuals who has become so wealthy that taxes no longer apply to you. 

    HSD says that those who do not comply with REAL ID will become “non-citizens” and for all intents and purposes will cease to exist as far as the Federal government is concerned.  Personally, I see this as a boon for those who are being taxed into poverty…..if you don’t recognize us, don’t know who we are, and we are no longer not only NOT citizens but have ceased to exist…….then we can’t possibly be taxed or forced to pay taxes.  How can you reasonably assess taxes against an individual that by your own edict no longer exists?

    We could also now assume the status of “illegal alien”…..we could work illegally, pay no taxes, get welfare benefits, have our children educated, get free medical care, housing assistance, fuel assistance, food assistance and a host of other perks not available to most legal citizens of this country and! We could send billions to our families each year to support them with the blessings of the Federal government. 

    Declaring ourselves as “illegal aliens”, US laws would not apply to us, enforcement of US laws would be declared inhumane, and any attempts to send us back to our home country would be futile because we are already here.  We’re just invisible!

    Sarcasm aside, ask yourself why our own government is adamant about tracking all of us when they are just as adamant that they cannot possibly track illegal entrants into this country? 

    REAL ID is the facilitating act that will put all US citizens under the command and control of HSD.  Acceptance of this ID will be acceptance of that command and control and is one of the final stages of implementing a police state. 

    REAL ID is enabler of previously enacted legislation that cannot be fully utilized unless American citizens are accordingly tagged and tracked. ( According to military sites, they can no longer identify hostages without RFID tracking chips to make sure they have the “right person”. )

    REAL ID is also necessary to implement the coming “cashless” society.  Your wages will be “credited” to your RFID number, and purchases “debited” from the same number and now the government will know exactly how much you had and what you did with every penny of it.  All of your current financial, medical, and personal information will be logged onto your number.

    Refuse to comply?  There’s a novel idea!  You no longer have access to the new “system”.  That means you can’t work, you can’t purchase food, you can’t seek medical care…..you’re not in the system.  You can’t enter a federal building (that would be the same buildings your tax dollars helped to build), board a plane, or ride a train!  You won’t be able to access your Social Security (this would be the same SS system who taxed your wages as an investment in this system…..they knew exactly who you were then and had no problems identifying you) or various other programs.

    All of this brought to you by Republicans and Democrats alike. 

    We do have our champions though.  Governor Schweitzer of Montana who is leading the rebellion against this horrendous act, and other states are following suit: http://www.realnightmare.org/news/105/  Is an updating list of states that have either totally rejected REAL ID or that have introduced resolutions to opt out or to repeal this odious piece of work.

    Not to be deterred, Michael Chertof, head of HSD says that HSD will retaliate against states that refuse to comply.  What?   Did that just fly pass our royal houses of congress unnoticed?  The head of a government agency threatened retaliation against the people of the United States for refusing to comply with an unconstitutional act and a breach of the Bill of Rights…….and…….congress isn’t slapping him down? 

    According to Chertof, Montana residents will no longer be able to board an airplane to fly out of the state after May 1, 2008.  Yup!  Sounds like America to me!

    Georgia also rejected REAL ID and is bracing for a showdown with HSD.  Georgia’s Hartsfield International Airport will likely come to a standstill as Georgia residents who refuse to be chipped and tracked by HSD will not be allowed boarding passes according to Chertof.  Having previously lived in the Atlanta area for more than 20 years, I can say without hesitation that Georgians’ will not take this lightly. 

    Because resistance to REAL ID is so widespread, it was necessary for our Congressional gods and goddesses to come up with an alternative penalty for non-compliance.  That’s how we got the new updated version of the Anti-Homegrown Terrorism (shut your mouth and sit down) Act, which has no limits on who it can target and persecute. 

    What I believe this is really about is not so much enacting such an illegal law like REAL ID, but instead, provoking civil disobedience and unrest.  They want us to rebel!  Bush needs an excuse to declare martial law and suspend the Constitution and Bill of Rights.   He and his cohorts in crime knew full well that Americans’ steeped in the concept of freedom would not sit still for this;  which also explains to me why we entered into the Civil Assistance Plan with Canada which will allow the use of their military against us on our own soil.  Why would this plan have been agreed to at this particular time and with what in mind?  None of this is accidental timing.

    As usual our congress on, both sides of the isle have not only complied with the establishment of the coming police state, they have facilitated it.  I have maintained for years that the terrorists we need to fear most are holding court inside the beltway.

    Microwave RFID Panopticon

    Leave a comment

    The Microwave RFID Panopticon: corp-state lifetime monitoring, health/civil implicationsThe Intelligence Reform Act of 2004 and the Real ID Act of 2005 establish an ominous national ID system, ***forcing all states to standardize*** biometric-laden birth certificates, drivers licenses and other ID cards. By 2008, personal data from these will be flowing into the HSD central database. While coming to power over all law enforcement agencies with its directives and funding, DHS is regimenting U.S. medical establishment to collect and forward all health data….Medical history [and the DNA database is expanding fast]….

    LET’S RECALL PNAC’s quote, signed off by dozens of appointee in Bush Administration: “…advanced forms of biological warfare that can target specific genotypes may transform biological warfare from the realm of terror to a politically useful tool.” This is a statement overtly supporting GENOCIDE. This is not politics as usual. What would you think if the President of the United States said this? All his staff have signed off on it. Would you care? Would you worry about your own genotype? In fact, this quote from the Project For The New American Century is from its 2000 document “Rebuilding America’s Defenses.”

    You are unable to organize a eugenic bio-weapon driven Holocaust like PNAC wants without detailed individual genetic-biological lists, courtesy of, in the U.S. from 2008, a microwave based RFID file system with individual required bio-information-genetic markers carried at all times as an internal passport, mandated by the State; Bush learns from Third Reich well, same exact eugenic strategy different technical solutions [cite: IBM and the Holocaust];
