maple_leafI’m already a little ticked off about the 2010 census. The GPS man was back walking around my property again this week, waving his little supercomputer to and fro. Many people in the alternative media are beginning to question the whole “front door GPS painting” process. The following article and follow up appeared in the Canadian Free Press. They are lengthy, but I thought they were interesting enough to post in their entirety.

Obama and ACORN GPS Marking EVERY Front Door in America?
By JB Williams Wednesday, April 29, 2009

Republican Senator Judd Gregg was Obama’s first choice for the Secretary of Commerce post, and Gregg was actually considering joining the Obama team, until he found out that control of the US Census was being stripped from the Commerce Department and placed under the direct control of White House Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel.

Then, the same week that Americans learned that they were “domestic terrorists”—at least according to Obama’s new DHS (Department of Homeland Security),—if they own a bible, a pocket Constitution or guns, and still believe in Life, Liberty and Freedom, – they also learned that Obama’s Census Bureau had hired thousands of new temporary employees, equipped each with a handheld GPS computer and sent them out to mark GPS coordinates for every residential front door in America.

Oddly, it was this same period that news was breaking of an international flu pandemic, suspected of being a weaponized strain of the virus never before seen, – and that Obama’s team still sees no need to close the US-Mexican border, despite the cross continental spread of a deadly illness now claiming American lives.

Now, if any one of these events happened alone, one might not get too excited. But when a string of such events happen all at once, one begins to question the string of freedom and life threatening coincidences…

I can’t resist the urge to question the authority and purpose behind such a BIG BROTHER initiative, when the official Census itself is not due to be taken until 2010…

No imagination is required to think up a whole laundry list of evil that could be done with a nationwide GPS grid of coordinate’s markers painted on every private home across the country. But I was having trouble thinking up one good reason for it, even one legitimate use that would justify what must be a very expensive undertaking.

According to one of the Census workers, who spoke with me on condition of anonymity, they must GPS mark the coordinates “within 40 ft of every front door” in America and they are supposed to complete that mission nation wide, within 90 days, by the end of July 2009.

The workers were not told why they were GPS marking every front door. But a supervisor is sent out to follow them door-to-door, to make certain that no door is left unmarked. Every door will be marked by one employee, and then checked by a follow-up supervisor.

So, I had to ask, why?
Why does the Obama administration need or want the latitude and longitude coordinates for every home in America? Why the rush to GPS paint every home in the next 90 days? Why must the marker be within 40 ft of every front door? For what possible purpose does the Fed need GPS coordinates for every home, and under what authority do they have the right? Census workers, whom I asked, had the same holy-crap look on their faces that I had by then…

ACORN signed on as a national partner with the U.S. Census Bureau in February 2009 to assist with the recruitment of the 1.4 million temporary workers needed to go door-to-door to count every person in the United States — currently believed to be more than 306 million people. But the count doesn’t take place until 2010… This is April 2009.

Obama’s interest in an ACORN controlled 2010 Census, for the purpose of redistricting to the advantage of Democrats before the 2010 mid-term elections, comes as NO shock from a regime known for their heavy handed Rules for Radicals political strategies. But what does this have to do with GPS marking every home in the country?

The 2% of Americans, who have served military duty at some point in life, are very familiar with the most common use of GPS target painting. The other 98% of Americans might want to pick up a book on the subject, such as The Precision Revolution: GPS and the Future of Aerial Warfare …

Their Authority?
RightSoup.com has just about the only online report available on the matter, and they report, “Why does the government (and ACORN) need to have the GPS coordinates of your FRONT DOOR? Your house is probably on Google Maps already. But the front door? Sounds like a jackboot convenience to me. This is a developing story, and several reports of those who have already been visited by the GPS squad
can be found in this forum thread.”

If you challenge Census Bureau employees about the GPS marking of your private residence, you will be handed a preprinted explanation referring you to Sec. 223, Title 13, U.S. Code, Chapter 7, Subtitle 2, which explains the penalties for refusing to provide names and statistics of occupants when asked for by a census taker. This only applies when they are taking a census, (which will not be taken until next year), and the penalty for refusing to answer questions for a census is up to a $500 fine. [Actually, the fine for refusing to answer is $100. $500 is the fine for providing false answers to the questions. To my knowledge, no one has ever been fined for refusing to answer census questions.]

However, since the actual Census is not due to be taken until 2010, nobody is asking for any information today. They are only GPS marking your front door today, and Sec. 223, Title 13, U.S. Code, Chapter 7, Subtitle 2 provides the Fed NO authority to GPS paint your front door.

Best I can tell, the Fed has NO authority whatsoever, to paint the front door of every private residence in America. Still, that is exactly what they are doing. Now, the trillion dollar question is, why?

A State of Emergency
From Wikipedia – The Posse Comitatus Act is a United States federal law (18 U.S.C.
§ 1385) passed on June 16, 1878 after the end of Reconstruction, with the intention of substantially limiting the powers of the federal government to use the military for law enforcement. The Act prohibits most members of the federal uniformed services from exercising nominally state law enforcement, police, or peace officer powers that maintain “law and order” on non-federal property (such as states and their counties and municipal divisions) within the United States.

In short, the statute generally prohibits federal military personnel and units of the National Guard operating under federal authority, from acting in a law enforcement capacity within the United States.

As members of the military are sworn to protect and defend the Constitution and the American people against all enemies, both foreign and domestic, a federal order to do the exact opposite, and take aim at American citizens, would be a clear violation of the US Constitution and the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878, unless…

US Military personnel are trained to follow orders. But they are also obligated to refuse any order deemed “unlawful.” In order to make such an order appear “lawful,” the federal government would first have to declare a national “state of emergency,” such as in the case of an international pandemic, which can be demonstrated to threaten the health and well-being of American citizens.

Following a state of emergency declaration, a federal order for Martial Law would be expected, to allegedly provide law enforcement and security for citizens. This type of scenario can be followed by a presidential order to quarantine, disarm and contain American citizens in the name of national security, all of it, having the appearance of being “lawful.”

Is this what is happening?

Connecting the Dots
Alone, individual events look concerning, but not conspiratorial. What about when you place the pieces of the puzzle together and take a look at the entire picture developing?

Under this “theory,” how does the GPS marking of every private residence in the nation fit into the picture?

I wish I knew… but I don’t!

What I do know is this… Coincidences of this number and magnitude don’t happen. They certainly do not happen all at the same time, within hours or days of each other, out of the wild blue tin-foil hat heaven…

I also know that people had better start asking the right people the right questions and demanding answers fast. Begin with asking the mainstream press why there has been no public notification of the federal governments GPS marking your front door?

Then, I suggest contacting your local Census Bureau office immediately, and demanding an explanation as well as advice as to what law gives them the right to GPS paint every front door in America?

I’d also recommend sending a copy of this column to your state and federal representative, demanding that they put a stop to it or explain why it’s necessary, and what law gives them the right?

Unfortunately, we live in a moment of history when real events are much stranger than nutty conspiracy theories. The people have every right to know what is happening. But unless you demand to know, nobody’s talking!

Bill Clinton sold US nuclear technology to Red China for a mere $300,000 in campaign contributions. The event landed Chinese bagman Johnny Chung in prison, but put Hillary Clinton in the US Senate, and now at the helm of the US State Department.

Highly secured government servers are hacked daily. Soon, hackers will be able to grab a nation wide GPS grid map, marking the front door of every home in America.

How much is a GPS grid of every American household worth to the enemies of America, both foreign and domestic? I’d estimate, PRICELESS!

There is a foul odor resonating from the current regime in Washington DC and most Americans can smell it. Can most Americans gather the strength to do something about it?

U.S. Census Bureau
The Department of Commerce
Contacting the Congress

After the publication of this article, Mr. Williams got lots of comments to the tune of: You’re crazy man! The guv’ment good! Obama wouldn’t hurt a fly! So Mr. Williams wrote the following response to his commenters:

From readers on: Obama and ACORN GPS Marking EVERY Front Door in America?
By JB Williams Saturday, May 2, 2009

Reply to all comments on this thread…
From Original Article: Obama and ACORN GPS Marking EVERY Front Door in America?

Imagine for a moment, that it was armed members of the US Military Special Weapons Unit, or the CIA and FBI, dressed in full combat gear, that arrived on every doorstep to establish GPS weapons coordinates for every front door in America. When you ask WHY, you are handed a preprinted document from the government stating that you must comply in allowing the military to GPS mark the front door where your children sleep….

The only difference between this imaginary story and the reality taking place today, is the government was wise enough to not use soldiers or known spooks to mark these coordinates, because that would scare the hell out of every American. They would meet with immediate and likely deadly resistance.

But the same coordinates the special GPS weapons unit would take, are being taken by friends and neighbors working for the US Census Bureau, and they are dressed in every day cloths, and state that they don’t know why they were asked to take the GPS coordinates for every front door in America.

The US Military isn’t at your door. But the US Census Bureau at your door is doing the exact same thing as described in the imaginary scenario above. One scares the hell out of you, the other, not so much.

Let’s restate the indisputable facts as they exist…
1) Barack Hussein Obama has spent $1 million to avoid producing a $10.00 certified copy of his birth records, which remain a mystery to the world.
2) The man in the White House for the last 100 days, refuses to make his college records, or any other significant part of his life “transparent.”
3) Obama put control of the 2010 Census directly under the management of WH Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel.
4) In February 2009, the Obama administration singed a partnership to allow ACORN (well known as the organization that perfected the art of election fraud) as it’s leading partner for the 2010 Census.
5) In March 2009, the Obama Administration provided ACORN with $4 billion in taxpayer funds to expand its “community rabble rousing” efforts across the land.
6) In April 2009, Obama’s DHS issued a Special Report referring to all Americans who own guns, a bible, a pocket constitution and speak out against this administration “domestic terrorists.”
7) A world-wide pandemic breaks out…and quickly makes its way to America, while Obama claims remains NO reason to close the southern border, where the pandemic allegedly started.
8 ) Several bio-weapons experts come forward to indicate that this “new strain” is likely a “weaponized” version of other previously known viruses, combined together.
9) Obama drove the nation from a trillion in debt to TEN TRILLION in debt in his first 90 days…
10) And now, In April 2009, the Obama administration started GPS marking every residential front door in America with the same exact coordinates used for military GPS guided munitions. But they used locally hired and trained folks to do it, rather than sending GPS weapons specialists to do it.

These are 10 FACTS based upon very real events…
A poster here by the name of Steve, is clearly desperate to convince readers that none of this adds up to anything fishy. Note that he has not spoken to any of the other 9 connected events, but rather only the matter of GPS marking your door. He states repeatedly that Google Earth already has the GPS coordinates for your home, which is of course, not true, and if it were true, would make today’s Census GPS exercise a complete waste of time and money.

As an aircraft pilot myself, I can tell you that many structures are indeed recorded on GPS maps. I can also tell you that those maps are by no means complete, or even all that accurate. But let’s stay focused here…

If we were talking about only one, or maybe even two of these events, it would be a short discussion. But this story has taken hold and is now crossing into the mainstream press, although like Steve, many of Obama’s minions in the press are trying to calm everyone’s nerves, not stop the GPS marking of every front door in America. The DC Census office itself, is monitoring my story…

The most interesting part of Steve’s argument is this… Steve conveniently overlooks one major question… which remains whether you buy Steve interpretation of events or not… If the Fed doesn’t already have GPS coordinates for every door, why do they need them now? – If they do already have them, as Steve falsely claims, why would the need them again?

Either way, the question “why” remains…
In my original column, I state that “I do not know” the answers to these questions. But once again, I do know this… the people have every reason to be concerned about the mounding events, and they have every right to know who Barack Obama really is and what he is really up to… and if they don’t demand to know, nobody is talking, except minions like Steve….

Steve tells you that Article I Section II of the Constitution gives the government the right to GPS mark your door. It doesn’t, of course. But Steve does not want to talk about Article II – Section I of the Constitution which clearly states,

“No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty five years, and been fourteen Years a resident within the United States.”

Steve’s president is a fraud. As such, nothing he does is “legal” – “constitutional” or “legitimate.” On this basis alone, Steve’s argument is incorrect.

I will NEVER accept Obama as anything but the greatest fraud ever perpetrated on the American people, until he makes his own life “Transparent.” If he releases all of his history and I turn out to be wrong, I will write a story about that. But don’t expect to read that story any time soon.

Obama is making all of the tools used to keep America safe from a second 9/11 “transparent” for even our known enemies. But his birth and college records remain “TOP SECRET.” This doesn’t strike Steve as strange, or reason for concern?

That’s what makes people like me dig for facts, fit pieces of the anti-American puzzle together in an effort to see the whole picture. Admittedly, we are working with a thousand piece puzzle here, and only about a hundred pieces in hand.

Obama can end the assumptions and speculation by simply becoming transparent about it all. But don’t expect him to do it. People with nothing to hide don’t work this hard to hide it… Nor do they prepare for when the wrong info becomes public, as it always does, eventually.

Last, by Steve’s logic, it doesn’t matter who you hand the gun to. It was okay for Bush to have the gun, why not Obama? That’s like saying the prison guard has a gun, why can’t the inmates have guns too?….

As the Q10 peepshow approaches next April, perhaps we should be asking some questions of our own.

Here is a small collection of videos that I have gathered giving several different perspectives on the current swine/avian/human H1N1 influenza “outbreak” that is currently dominating the MSM. It would behoove us all to do a little digging and find out all we can about what is going on.

Video #1: John at stellaconcepts discusses the influenza outbreak as a “false flag operation” designed to explain the inevitable collapse of the U.S. economy:

Video #2: Mike at Don’t Panic! gives a thorough overview of the current situation including information on the Baxter concoction and flu outbreak history:

Video #3: The first of a nine part program on the flu outbreak by Alex Jones at Infowars:

Video #4: An finally, Dr. Ron Paul gives his perspective on the swine flu, explaining why the government (specifically the Department of Homeland Security) has no place in making medical decisions for U.S. citizens:

Current “official” information on the swine flu outbreak can be found at:

the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for the United States

harman2007From Radley Balko:

Representative Jane Harman of California, a vocal supporter of the NSA and illegal wiretapping, found the shoe to be on the other foot this week. In 2006, Harman threatened to prosecute the New York Times for revealing the possible illegality of the government’s warrantless wiretapping practices. This is what she had to say in support of the NSA’s wiretapping program and in condemnation of the Times:

“By the way, I deplore that leak,” Harman declared moments before her comments on prosecuting the Times. “This is a very valuable foreign [intelligence] collection program. I think it is tragic that a lot of our capabilities are now [spread] across the pages of the newspapers.”

This week the New York Times reported that Harman was recorded on just such a government wiretap “agreeing to seek lenient treatment from the Bush administration for two pro-Israel lobbyists who were under investigation for espionage.” In return, “the caller promised her that a wealthy California donor…would threaten to withhold campaign contributions to Representative Nancy Pelosi…if she did not select Ms. Harman for the intelligence post (Chairwoman of the House Intelligence Committee).”

Whoops.

The formerly staunch supporter of wiretapping ordinary Americans changed her tune on MSNBC yesterday:

I’m just very disappointed that my country — I’m an American citizen just like you are — could have permitted what I think is a gross abuse of power in recent years. I’m one member of Congress who may be caught up in it, and I have a bully pulpit and I can fight back. I’m thinking about others who have no bully pulpit, who may not be aware, as I was not, that someone is listening in on their conversations, and they’re innocent Americans.

You hear that, people? She’s now very concerned about us ordinary innocent Americans and our privacy. Gimme a break. How long are we going to tolerate these clowns? Even the folks in California should be able to figure this one out.

Here is another take on the video I posted yesterday of the CNN reporter at the Chicago tea party. This time you get to see what happened after they shut the cameras off. Very telling.

UPDATE 4/20/09: The above video can no longer be viewed because CNN claims it violates copyrights. Very telling indeed.

teacupHappy Tax Day. Thousands of people attended anti-tax “tea parties” across the nation today, protesting unchecked government spending, bailouts, and other various unconstitutional behavior.

When asked, President Obama claimed that he was “unaware” of the protests. That seems about right. Aware or not, he chose today to pitch another of his “promises to America”, vowing to simplify the tax code. I wouldn’t hold my breath on this one, if his recent record at keeping promises is any guide.

Several other interesting things happened in conjunction with the tea parties:

Texans are thinking about seceding from the Union, but probably won’t

–In protest of the protests, ACORN claimed to be organizing dozens of “We Like Taxes” rallies in support of President Obama and his budget

–As expected, the mainstream media had various field days with the protests. You couldn’t watch FOX News for 15 seconds without hearing someone gush over the tea parties, and CNN and MSNBC wouldn’t quit blathering on about how FOX News was over-covering the story. And on the funny side, watch this video of a CNN reporter getting shoved around a little bit by the tea partiers in Chicago (my favorite part is where she says that she has to go because the scene isn’t fit for “family viewing”):

The tea party in my hometown was a small affair dominated by the Republicans. I got there kind of late due to work conflicts but was able to shoot a short, poor quality video (please ignore the militia/terrorist Gadsden flag insignia):

Again, happy Tax Day everyone. And many more.

g20As the week comes to a close, there are several interesting liberty-related developments to report. First off, the G20 meeting has been officially wrapped up, complete with an official G20 draft communiqué. It’s mostly “we agree blah, blah, blah” and “we pledge blah, blah, blah” but there are a couple of very interesting items here. Take a look at point number 19:

We have agreed to support a general SDR allocation which will inject $250 billion into the world economy and increase global liquidity, and urgent ratification of the Fourth Amendment.

SDR stands for Special Drawing Rights. SDR is an international reserve asset, created by the International Monetary Fund, that consists of a basket of various currencies, currently the euro, Japanese yen, pound sterling, and U.S. dollar. Until now the use of SDR has been very limited; its main function has been to serve as the unit of account of the IMF and some other international organizations. According to point 19 above, however, this soon will change by the ratification of the Fourth Amendment, which would increase the supply of SDR enough for all IMF participant countries to use as a reserve currency. According to the IMF SDR fact sheet:

A proposal for a special one-time allocation of SDRs was approved by the IMF’s Board of Governors in September 1997 through the proposed Fourth Amendment of the Articles of Agreement. This allocation would double cumulative SDR allocations to SDR 42.8 billion. Its intent is to enable all members of the IMF to participate in the SDR system on an equitable basis and correct for the fact that countries that joined the Fund after 1981—more than one fifth of the current IMF membership—have never received an SDR allocation. The Fourth Amendment will become effective when three fifths of the IMF membership (111 members) with 85 percent of the total voting power accept it. Currently, 131 members with 77.68 percent of total voting power had accepted the proposed amendment. Approval by the United States, with 16.75 percent of total votes, would put the amendment into effect.

So, according to this, if Barack Obama’s United States concedes to the Fourth Amendment, we will have the beginnings of a new world currency known as Special Drawing Rights. This is not being reported much, but some folks are catching on.

Point 15 is also very interesting. It reads, in part:

To this end we are implementing the Action Plan agreed at our last meeting, as set out in the attached progress report. We have today also issued a Declaration, Strengthening the Financial System. In particular we agree:
to establish a new Financial Stability Board (FSB) with a strengthened mandate, as a successor to the Financial Stability Forum (FSF), including all G20 countries, FSF members, Spain, and the European Commission; to extend regulation and oversight to all systemically important financial institutions, instruments and markets. This will include, for the first time, systemically important hedge funds; to endorse and implement the FSF’s tough new principles on pay and compensation and to support sustainable compensation schemes and the corporate social responsibility of all firms; to take action against non-cooperative jurisdictions, including tax havens. We stand ready to deploy sanctions to protect our public finances and financial systems. The era of banking secrecy is over. We note that the OECD has today published a list of countries assessed by the Global Forum against the international standard for exchange of tax information.

As you can see, the G20 has initiated a new international regulatory board, called the FSB, to oversee the world’s financial system. The IMF conceivably will have complete regulatory control over monitoring the G20 nations’ economies. This has led to yelping from the press about a new world order. I don’t know about that, but it definitely reduces the sovereignty of the United States with regard to its fiscal and financial policy.

Mike at Don’t Panic! has done an outstanding video review of the G20 meeting. Take a few minutes to watch it if you really want to know what is going on.

nkoreaIn other news, North Korea finally fired it’s missile. Supposedly carrying a satellite into orbit around the earth, the rocket traveled directly over Japan. If it was indeed a satellite launch, North Korea had a legitimate right to proceed under international space law. However, in a style we can only call “change we can believe is exactly like the prior administration”, Barack Obama went begging to the United Nations for punishment sanctions. Good luck with that. If I weren’t an American, I would be rolling on the floor in laughter at how a little bitty third world communist country that can’t even feed its own people is leading the United States around by the nose.

Incidentally, just before the launch, Barack Obama made a speech in which he pledged that the United States will “lead the way” in getting rid of all nuclear weapons on earth. That, my friends, is a truly stupid idea. I am 100% in favor or international peace, and the only way we can maintain that peace is through equal or superior firepower. Nuclear balance is the only realistic path: the United States is “safe” from nuclear attack only because we have the ability to launch one ourselves. Even if we did lead the way in disarmament, who can guarantee everybody else is doing the same? Sooner or later some rogue state will re-develop the bomb, or Russia might just find 5 or 10 nukes that they “forgot to destroy” shoved in a closet somewhere. Obama can’t be realistically even contemplating this; I have a feeling it’s just feel-good headline material for the press and the Greenies. Pandora’s nuclear box is wide open and we ain’t shutting it.

And in today’s stupid people news, I would like to remind all patriots and others out there that gunning down three police officers is not an acceptable way to protect our 2nd Amendment rights.
