REAL ID: How the government became a home grown terrorism organization

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

To all of you who dutifully supplied all that information to the Department of Motor Vehicles so that you might obtain that special gold star on your driver license…. I don’t even know what to say to you. I want to ask you why you did not stand up and refuse this infringement of your right to travel freely, without being tagged and marked in a tracking system meant to be used against you if it should become convenient to do so.

I know….you haven’t done anything wrong and you have nothing to hide so you don’t mind if they spy on you, track you, impede your right to travel freely, and whatever else they can come up with to let you know, YOU ARE THE ENEMY THE GOVERNMENT FEARS MOST.

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

Dear Government: Please let me save you some time and put your paranoid collective minds to rest. Tap into that massive data collection center you built down there in Utah. There is a plethora of information on file there about me (along with everyone else), which details every possible bit and piece of information about me, whether relevant or not, useful or not, true or not, in volumes so massive that it boggles the mind. You have collected:

  • every email I have written or received,
  • every phone call I made or received,
  • every comment or interaction I have had anywhere at any time for any reason,
  • and stored all of it in a massive and useless mountain of information that has no other purpose than to assuage your fear and,
  • to be used possibly in the future against me.

For instance: In case you decide you need to construct a fictitious case against me for having the audacity to question your motives and intentions when you violate our Constitution meant to protect us from you should you lose your collective minds at some point which, obviously, you are in the process of doing.

But therein lies the biggest problem. You have amassed such a massive amount of pointless data bits about each of us, that the idea of this being used to identify possible terrorists or terrorist activity is exposed as the fraud that it is. You aren’t tracking terrorists or their activity….you are tracking us.

I can actually understand your desire to control absolutely the very people you were charged with representing. After all, you have done much to betray us, to abuse your offices, and profited quite handsomely while doing so. More

MISS LIBERTY AND THE SURVEILLANCE FACTOR

Author, Chuck Frank

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

While millions are glued to their cellphones and national and international news clips rule, the mainstream people are distracted by a psycho-political assault upon their minds.  The club of mind benders from Silicon Valley, the New York Times and other other lackluster cellphone news outlets are meant to program and indoctrinate hundreds of millions with political correctness and thought control but will also fleece the flock with advertisements galore.  So, while the a polluted river of information floods the nations to keep the people glued to either their cellphone, TV, movies or a PC Game, our dear Miss Liberty and freedom continues to slip away at light speed.  And how is it that so many people are either oblivious to this fact or perhaps not even aware of it?  Well, it is high time that we the people come together and deal with the greatest worldly heist of freedom that has ever  happened in the history of the world.  One may say that this is not possible when looking at past regimes where Kings and tyrants had ruled their kingdoms with tyranny and terror, however, I disagree with this assessment.

Since 9/11, when the towers fell, a massive warrant-less surveillance system imposed by George W. Bush became the beginning of the framework for a society which has now been retooled, so to speak, as a post 1984 Big Brother state. The U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights remain under attack by certain factions within the government, whether it be the courts, the deep state,, the federal and state agencies, universities, former Presidents, or certain members of Congress within the two party system.  And as the American people try to navigate through a world which has greatly changed since the last century they find it harder and harder to remain free in a nation that fought for freedom abroad but now no longer offers the very lesson and life that originally came with more compassion, fewer laws and greater opportunity for all.

With the rising surveillance factor, in regard to cellphones, the governments of the world, such as America, are already invading our privacy with unconstitutional warrant-less surveillance, whether our cellphone is either on or off.  So if a person’s texts or their private conversations are being recorded and placed in a database cloud to where one day that information may be used against them in a court hearing, and possibly  with “no jury”, then my friend, this nation and other countries would have fallen into the greatest tyrannical New World Order plot of all time.  And while China is already creating a surveillance super state, has not America been working at building a high tech, post 1984 Super State before Red China even had super computers?  And guess how China got their first super computers?  You got it.  American corporations sold them to China years ago.  It’s all in the game.  And lest all of the world becomes part of the China syndrome, to where nations tap into their own super sinful surveillance systems, ALL FREEDOM WILL BE LOST.

Police can get access to your cellphone data even after a Supreme Court ruled in favor of digital privacy advocates.

5G SUMMIT-AWARENESS AND ACCOUNTABILITY

Smart Meter News

Current And Up to Date Global Smart Meter News

April 11 of this year was the turning point. That’s when I got clear: there needed to be a worldwide convergence event that exposes 5G and really opens up the discussion… as soon as possible.

I realized that the way the telecoms are going crazy — deploying their agenda even though it’s unsafe, converting utility poles to cell towers in our front yards,using their media influence to spread disinformation, etc — too much is at stake to play small.

So I first pitched my good friend Sayer Ji, who saw the huge need and became my partner. Then, five days later, we brought in the HealthTalks Online team, the world leader in summits with a large distribution network.

From early May to early June, in just about a month, I went on a tear and recorded more than 40 interviews with the world’s leading experts on 5G, wireless radiation risks, surveillance and tech addiction.

Amazingly, I was able to interview virtually everyone at the very top of my list.

The result is the upcoming “The 5G Crisis: Awareness & Accountability Summit,” which is free & online August 26 – September 1.

I knew it was going to be big, but the response during the first few days of promotion has been epic. This is information that everyone needs to know.

I find it more than strange that the government knows exactly who I am if I owe taxes, if I get a ticket, when I apply for a drivers license, or in a myriad of other settings….but suddenly has amnesia when I attempt to board a plane. Now, by October 1, 2018, thanks to the failure of the Minnesota legislature, who, in pursuit of Federal largesse, failed to act to protect Minnesota residents from federal encroachment and over-reach, I must have a biometric marked ID or passport to board a plane. And TSA is now installed in many train stations and bus stations.

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

You need to biometrically brand me? I need a passport to travel in my own country? You’ve been tracking me since the day I was born and suddenly you can’t be sure who I am? This after admitting that allegedly 20 million or more people have entered the US illegally, many working under assumed names, fake ID’s and millions who have simply disappeared into the country?

A recent trip that included destinations in five states, resulted in me and thousands of other individuals, being subjected to invasive assaults from TSA officers under the guise of “keeping us all safe”. The question that comes to mind immediately after these assaults is: Who is going to keep us safe from the TSA?

By far, the worst experience was at the Lindbergh terminal in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This airport is a study in chaos, mismanagement and particularly venomous TSA agents. Of course, if you are one of those individuals convinced that even after passing through the scanners that for some reason you must now be groped, patted, grabbed, mashed, and verbally assaulted by these otherwise unemployable individuals who are now sporting a uniform and a badge, I assume this physical assault is just fine.

After all, almost 20 years ago they blew up buildings with planes in New York. I was reminded of this at the Lindbergh terminal after having my hands swabbed with a strip used to detect dangerous chemicals. Having had this done numerous times on numerous trips, when the agent swabbed my hands and told me to move on….I did. I did not realize that a new step in this process had been added and that included yet another agent located to my right about 12 feet away, in a small cubicle with a scanner for analysis of the strip. (In other airports this scanner is right there by the agent who swabs you) As I moved to the left to retrieve my purse from the bin, I heard a woman screaming: “Don’t you dare! You get yourself over here! Don’t even think about it! You get yourself over here right now!”

I, of course, looked around to see not only who was screaming, but whom was she screaming at? You guessed it! It was me! As I walked towards her I asked her why she was screaming. She went on a diatribe about how I had to stand there until the analysis was finished, and I better not move until it was complete. Being me, I of course expressed my disgust with this type of behavior, knowing it to be an intimidation tactic and also totally unnecessary. Then comes MR.TSA!! He ran over to where I was and immediately went into a soliloquy about how buildings were blown up in this country and it could happen again and their job was to make sure it didn’t. He ended with saying he thought about this every day. Doubtful Mr. TSA, very doubtful. (PS: I didn’t blow up any buildings in New York or anywhere else for that matter, but you already knew that) More

THE CHINA SIN/DROM: Collecting And Storing Personal Information

Leave a comment

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


Do Americans know that they are being profiled by their telephone company?  Service providers such as AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, and T-Mobile collect data and retain it but are not forthcoming in detailing the kind of data they collect and the reasons why they collect it.  Taking this a bit further, a quick glimpse here shows what smartphone service providers collect and what governments are up to.


In the near future people, depending upon the country they live in and government mandates, persons will not be able to buy or sell without a card or a smartphone that can be scanned at either a store or by using other electronic means that will connect to ones cell phone, their account or their computer.  Paying for anything in cash or by check will become history and not an option.  This is a necessary evil that governments and corporations will enforce for the “benefit” of the country and the world.  My advice…don’t sell out to this monster which is meant to place every human being on the planet under an all seeing eye that will finally take away every last freedom for the sake of the “good of the whole.”
