Tracking the kids in school – Texas

Editor’s Note – Is big brother really here to stay? What next…RFID chips in every baby born…?

America’s Schools: Breeding Grounds for Compliant Citizens

By John W. Whitehead – The Rutherford Institute

“[P]ublic school reform is now justified in the dehumanizing language of national security, which increasingly legitimates the transformation of schools into adjuncts of the surveillance and police state… students are increasingly subjected to disciplinary apparatuses which limit their capacity for critical thinking, mold them into consumers, test them into submission, strip them of any sense of social responsibility and convince large numbers of poor minority students that they are better off under the jurisdiction of the criminal justice system than by being valued members of the public schools.”—Professor Henry Giroux

For those hoping to better understand how and why we arrived at this dismal point in our nation’s history, where individual freedoms, privacy and human dignity have been sacrificed to the gods of security, expediency and corpocracy, look no farther than America’s public schools.

Once looked to as the starting place for imparting principles of freedom and democracy to future generations, America’s classrooms are becoming little more than breeding grounds for compliant citizens. The moment young people walk into school, they increasingly find themselves under constant surveillance: they are photographed, fingerprinted, scanned, x-rayed, sniffed and snooped on. Between metal detectors at the entrances, drug-sniffing dogs in the hallways and surveillance cameras in the classrooms and elsewhere, many of America’s schools look more like prisons than learning facilities.

Add to this the epidemic of arresting schoolchildren and treating them as if they are dangerous criminals, and you have the makings of a perfect citizenry for our emerging police state—one that can be easily cowed, controlled, and directed. Now comes the latest development in the sad deconstruction of our schools: “smart” identification cards containing Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags that allow school officials to track every step students take. So small that they are barely detectable to the human eye, RFID tags produce a radio signal by which the wearer’s precise movements can be constantly monitored.

A pilot program using these RFID cards is being deployed at two schools in San Antonio, Texas’ Northside School District. In the so-called name of school safety, some 4,200 students at Jay High School and Jones Middle School are being required to carry these “smart” ID cards embedded with an RFID tracking chip which will actively broadcast a signal at all times.  Although the schools already boast 290 surveillance cameras, the cards will make it possible for school officials to track students’ whereabouts at all times.

School officials hope to expand the program to the district’s 112 schools, with a student population of 100,000. As always, there’s a money incentive hidden within these programs, in this case, it’s increased state funding for the school system. Although implementation of the system will cost $500,000, school administrators are hoping that if the school district is able to increase attendance by tracking the students’ whereabouts, they will be rewarded with up to $1.7 million from the state government.

High school sophomore Andrea Hernandez, who is actively boycotting the RFID cards, was told that “there will be consequences for refusal to wear an ID card.” Students who refuse to take part in the ID program won’t be able to access essential services like the cafeteria and library, nor will they be able to purchase tickets to extracurricular activities. Hernandez was prevented from voting for Homecoming King and Queen after school officials refused to verify her identity using her old ID card. According to Hernandez, teachers are even requiring students to wear the IDs when they want to use the bathroom.  School officials reportedly offered to quietly remove the tracking chip from Andrea’s card if the sophomore would agree to wear the new ID, stop criticizing the program and publicly support the initiative. Hernandez refused the offer.

This is not the first time that schools have sprung RFID chips on unsuspecting students and their parents. Schools in California and Connecticut have tried similar systems, and Houston, Texas began using RFID chips to track students as early as 2004. With the RFID business booming, a variety of companies, including AIM Truancy Solutions, ID Card Group and DataCard, market and sell RFID trackers to school districts throughout the country, claiming they can increase security and attendance. For example, AIM Truancy Solutions, a Dallas-based company, claims that its tracking system boosts attendance by twelve percent.

RFID tags are not the only surveillance tools being used on America’s young people. Chronically absent middle schoolers in Anaheim, Calif., have been enrolled in a GPS tracking program. As journalist David Rosen explains:

Each school day, the delinquent students get an automated ‘wake-up’ phone call reminding them that they need to get to school on time. In addition, five times a day they are required to enter a code that tracks their locations: as they leave for school, when they arrive at school, at lunchtime, when they leave school and at 8pm. These students are also assigned an adult ‘coach’ who calls them at least three times a week to see how they are doing and help them find effective ways to make sure they get to school.

Some schools in New York, New Jersey, and Missouri are tracking obese and overweight students with wristwatches that record their heart rate, movement and sleeping habits. Schools in San Antonio have chips in their lunch food trays, which allow administrators to track the eating habits of students. Schools in Michigan’s second largest school district broadcast student activity caught by CCTV cameras on the walls of the hallways in real time to let students know they’re being watched.

Some school districts have even gone so far as to electronically track students without notifying their parents. In 2010, it was revealed that a Pennsylvania school district had given students laptops installed with software that allowed school administrators to track their behavior at home. This revelation led to the threat of a class-action lawsuit, which resulted in the school district settling with irate students and parents for $600,000. Similarly, in 2003, a Tennessee middle school placed cameras in the school’s locker rooms, capturing images of children changing before basketball practice. Thankfully, the US Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals struck down the practice in 2008, ruling that students have an expectation of privacy in locker rooms.

Clearly, there’s something more sinister afoot than merely tracking which students are using the bathroom and which are on lunch break. Concerned parent Judy Messer understands what’s at stake. “We do not want our children to be conditioned that tracking is normal or even acceptable or mandatory,” she shared.

“Conditioned” is the key word, of course. As Richard Hackman and Greg Oldham recognized in their book, Work Redesign, laboratory animals, children, and institutionalized adults “are necessarily dependent on powerful others for many of the things they most want and need, and their behavior usually can be shaped with relative ease.” Taking those ideas one step further, psychologist Bruce Levine noted, “Behaviorism and consumerism, two ideologies which achieved tremendous power in the twentieth century, are cut from the same cloth. The shopper, the student, the worker, and the voter are all seen by consumerism and behaviorism the same way: passive, conditionable objects.”

To return to what I was saying about schools being breeding grounds for compliant citizens, if Americans have come to view freedom as expedient and expendable, it is only because that’s what they’ve been taught in the schools, by government leaders and by the corporations who run the show.

More and more Americans are finding themselves institutionalized from cradle to grave, from government-run daycares and public schools to nursing homes. In between, they are fed a constant, mind-numbing diet of pablum consisting of entertainment news, mediocre leadership, and technological gadgetry, which keeps them sated and distracted and unwilling to challenge the status quo. All the while, in the name of the greater good and in exchange for the phantom promise of security, the government strips away our rights one by one—monitoring our conversations, chilling our expression, searching our bodies and our possessions, doing away with our due process rights, reversing the burden of proof and rendering us suspects in a surveillance state.

Whether or not the powers-that-be, by their actions, are consciously attempting to create a compliant citizenry, the result is the same nevertheless for young and old alike.

Fatal betrayal of America – HR 1505

Editor’s NoteDr. Ed Berry is the Chief Sciences Adviser to the SUA Kitchen Cabinet and is a world renowned expert on Climate issues.

By Dr. Ed Berry

America is defined by its Declaration of Independence and its Constitution. America is further defined by its English language, its Christian heritage, and its culture of achievement.

Politics is a triangle.

Many people think politics can be described by a horizontal line between left and right. In fact, this horizontal line is but the base of the political triangle. At the top of the political triangle is our Constitution. Those who support our Constitution, left or right, rise above the horizontal line in the direction of supporting true America. As they reach the peak, they converge.

Those who support our Constitution are not at some fictitious “extreme right” but are the top beacon showing the way for America.

Both the lower-left and the lower-right favor more federal government power over the states and the people. Neither follow our Constitution. This is why both Democrats and Republicans who are not following our Constitution are helping to destroy America.

Who cares about whether Obama is a legal president? Not the Democrats. Not the RINOs. Only those who support our Constitution.

The top believes what our Constitution’s 10th Amendment clearly says:

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

Democrats betray our Constitution when they give earth-worshipping environmentalists unconstitutional power over America. RINO Republicans betray our Constitution when they give power-hungry neocons unconstitutional power over America. Real Republicans and Americans support our Constitution.

Democrats don’t like HR 1505 because it removes some of their earth-worshipping environmental control over America. RINOs like HR 1505 because they think it provides more security for Americans. Real Republicans don’t like HR 1505 because it betrays our Constitution, trades our freedom for a false security, and is a path to an American Auschwitz.

Denny Rehberg’s proposed “Sheriffs First” amendment is a move toward our Constitution.

Montana Congressman Denny Rehberg moved upward in our political triangle when he introduced his “Sheriffs First” amendment to HR 1505, which, if approved, would give county sheriffs law enforcement power over federal agencies and personnel. The exception to a sheriff’s ultimate authority should be our Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) which may be our only way to remove corruption among local police.

If Rehberg’s amendment is successful, it will give Montana county sheriffs jurisdictionover DHS in their counties. Although our Constitution and the Mack-Printz Supreme Court decision already give county sheriffs this power, having it affirmed in a federal law would set a valuable precedent and make HR 1505 less oppressive, should it pass. Rehberg’s amendment applies only to Montana. It is up to the other states to join Rehberg’s amendment.

In summary, while I oppose HR 1505, I still support Rehberg’s Sheriffs First amendment because it move us from where we are now toward where we want to go.

Now, we will discuss the last amended version of HR 1505 without Rehberg’s proposed Sheriffs First amendment.

The last amended version of HR 1505 replaces Department of Homeland Security (DHS) with US Customs & Border Protection (CRB). However, it is difficult to accept CRB as divorced from its master.

DHS is a beast with “seven heads.”

DHS is seven agencies wrapped into one:

  1. TSA – Transportation Security Administration
  2. CBP – US Customs & Border Protection
  3. CIS – US Citizenship & Immigration Services
  4. ICE – US Immigration &Customs Enforcement
  5. SS – US Secret Service
  6. FEMA – Federal Emergency Management Agency
  7. USCG – US Coast Guard

Neat!

FEMA is the one with the small cages to put you in if you do not behave. TSA is the one that gives you a useless body scan before you get on an airplane, bus, etc. DHS is the oneadding its sensors to streetlights around America and the promoter of E-Verify and Real ID as a cradle-to-grave biometric tracking system for every American. HR 2164 promotes E-Verify and it goes hand-in-hand with HR 1505.  (See Tom DeWeese: “E-Verify and the Emerging Surveillance State“)

Here are some facts:

  • DHS is forming an international surveillance network
  • DHS is implementing the Real ID program
  • Real ID originated in the UN International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).
  • Real ID is a United Nations plan to control Americans and to rule the world.
  • DHS is taking its marching orders from the Southern Poverty Law Center.

The DHS big plan is to expand E-Verify into a global system. New technology is powerful and will become more powerful. Unless you stop DHS, it will control your life. When your government controls your life, you are their slave.

DHS will put your data in the world-wide DHS data banks assisted by DHS partners American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA) and the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).

The DHS goal is a one-size fits all international identification system using massive data banks that contain individual biometric information on nearly everyone in the world.

The DHS ordered specific changes to E-Verify to include biometric information and the use of enhanced photographs that measure and analyze the unique identifiable characteristics of a person’s face into a numeric code, usable and in compliance with these international databases.

Your identifying facial number code will be read by a computer and they can track your face by cameras worldwide. In addition, DHS has expanded the number of data bases used by E-Verify to check on employees. E-Verify is a central tool to implement an international ID system. With it, the government will watch your every move and your freedom will be gone with the wind.

DHS representatives have openly stated they wish to create a national ID card that tells everything about its owner. DHS would like to implement E-Verify and Real ID using an RFID microchip placed somewhere in your body where it would be impossible to extract.

DHS will control your travel, food, and water.

Perhaps in response to an Executive Order in January 2013, when Obama or Hillary becomes our next president, DHS will begin forcefully inserting RFID chips into you and your fellow Americans. All they need to do is catch you in a TSA flight check or at one of their road stops. Once they find you without your RFID, they will insert one into you on the spot. Zap. The pain will wear off in about 4 hours. From that point on, you are theirs, baby.

DHS already claims (unconstitutionally) federal government authority it to set up road blocks and sensors anywhere it wishes on private land within 100 miles of our borders. HR 1505 allows DHS to put sensors everywhere within 100 miles of our borders. In time, their territory will expand to everywhere in America. If we don’t stop them, we can expect to undergo body cavity scans and RFID insertions on our way to the grocery store.

If you know anything about how a database system works, you will understand that once you are tagged like a dog and once the DHS installs RFID sensors everywhere, even in wilderness areas, they can not only monitor you but also control everything you do. They will track you wherever you go and can limit where you go.

They will know who you meet with, what meetings you attend. They will know where you are even when you are traveling in your car on a highway. They will know when you buy fuel and how much. They can limit the amount of fuel you buy.

Consider these novelistic examples:

The DHS guy working in one of their border fortresses will see your ID pop up on his computer screen and say,

Hey, look. There goes Fred Jones with his family trying to hike to Canada. Go get him!

Or, if they have not yet inserted their RFID into you, the DHS guy will say,

“Hey, look. There goes someone without an RFID. Go get him and stick an RFID in him.”

Or,

“Hey, look. There goes Ted Turner and Bill Gates with their families hiking in our wilderness area. They give us money. Let ‘em go.”

They will control your food.

They will know when and where you go to the grocery store. They can limit the food you buy, perhaps leaving the good food for government employees and restricting you to junk food and high fructose corn syrup. They can starve you, or fatten you up so you can’t outrun them. They can make RFID’s that can terminate you when they wish. Bad boy? Bye-bye.

Thought you would grow your own food?

New federal laws say you no longer have that right. Try to survive by growing your own food and federal goons will poison your garden and kill your chickens.

They will control your water supply.

Given the authority the environmentalists and RINOs have given various federal agencies, HR 1505 opens the door to DHS diabolical control over your whole life.

Think you have a good, reliable well?

New federal water laws give the federal government authority over all water in America, even your well water. So, they can blow up your well. Of course, this is all in the name of saving the environment. “Hey, we can’t disturb the ground water.”

In case you haven’t figured it out yet, I don’t like HR 1505. Here’s why.

First, the reasons for HR 1505 are invalid.

The stated reasons for HR 1505 are:

1. Reason given: To stop the turf war between federal agencies. The Forest Service (USFS) and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) don’t like DHS on their land. Hmmm. Maybe they have good reasons to keep DHS off their land.

Solution A: Let the county sheriff decide who comes into his county, as according to the US Constitution. This is Rehberg’s proposed amendment.

Solution B: Return all federally confiscated land back to the states. This should be done anyway.

The irony is DHS-CBP never asked for power to overrule land managers or ignore environmental laws. Last spring the Government Accountability Office found,

“Most agents reported that land management laws have had no effect on Border Patrol’s overall measure of border security.”

2. Reason given: Drug growers are hiding the forests.

Solution A: Declare state sovereignty over federal drug laws. We don’t need feds coming into Montana enforcing federal laws that conflict with Montana laws.

Solution B: Stop America’s War on Drugs.

America’s War on Drugs is a scam. It keeps the price of drugs high by limiting supply, so drug cartels and our CIA can make money selling drugs. It hires police to catch pot growers and smokers to overflow up our prisons. But wealthy drug dealers who pay off the police have a free run. The solution is not to give DHS control over our land. The solution is to stop the War on Drugs.

Solution C: Rather than a War on Drugs, how about a massive information campaign in media and schools telling people how bad drugs are? Think we can’t do it? Why did we make Joe Camel illegal? Because Joe Camel proved good advertising will influence people’s behavior. Look at what the government has done to influence people to “believe” in global warming. With massive spending, media hype, and school indoctination they have accomplished a virtual miracle in causing people to believe in global warming when no evidence exists. This proves it would be easy to get most of our population to give up drugs, and this would be far cheaper and more effective than theWar on Drugs.

Solution D: Let DHS prove themselves on our southern border first.

Virtually all drugs used in America come across our southern border and DHS has not been able to stop it. So why should we allow DHS to control non-existent drug traffic our northern border when they can’t stop the problem where it exists?

The National Drug Intelligence Center, a branch of the U.S. Department of Justice, recently released a document entitled the “National Drug Threat Assessment 2011”. The Assessment’s Executive Summary states

The illicit trafficking and abuse of drugs present a challenging, dynamic threat to the United States. Overall demand is rising, largely supplied by illicit drugs smuggled to U.S. markets by major transnational criminal organizations (TCOs).

Major Mexican-based TCOs continue to solidify their dominance over the wholesale illicit drug trade as they control the movement of most of the foreign-produced drug supply across the U.S. Southwest Border. The estimated economic cost of illicit drug use to society for 2007 was more than $193 billion.”

One of the contributing factors is the high demand for drugs in the United States. This high demand finances the drug cartels, allowing them to spend more and expand their operations.

The Southwest Border remains the primary gateway for moving illicit drugs into the United States. Most illicit drugs available in the United States are smuggled overland across the Southwest Border…”

Despite enhanced detection efforts and better countermeasures, Mexican drug traffickers will continue to build tunnels under the Southwest Border.

That DHS would be involved in controlling drug operations begs the question of what is the role of DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration)? Is DHS is taking over all police powers of the federal government?

3. Reason given: To catch criminals who are hiding in the forests.

Solution A: This is a county sheriff problem. The idea that we need HR 1505 to find Dave Burgert who is hiding somewhere in the mountains is ridiculous. He did not commit a federal crime. Besides, he may be found innocent if he could get a fair trial but he cannot get a fair trial. Finding Burgert has nothing to do with controlling our borders. The Burgert problem may have more to do with corruption in our law enforcement and legal systems that should be investigated by our FBI.

More importantly, using the Burgert example shows the real intent of HR 1505 is to control American citizens.

4. Reason given: To stop illegal aliens from coming into America.

Solution A: Stop all the benefits the illegal’s receive free from the American taxpayer.

Tom DeWeese “E-Verify and the Emerging Surveillance State” says,

The fact is, the U.S. government is not doing its job to secure the border and stop the flood of illegal aliens from rushing across it. Even though Congress passed legislation demanding that a fence be built, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has dragged its feet, deliberately holding up the project.

Moreover, DHS is fighting efforts in local communities to allow police to arrest illegal’s. There is little effort to tighten visa security, or allow law enforcement to track down and deport those who stay here past their allotted time. Those illegal’s caught committing crimes are still allowed to leave, only to easily and surreptitiously return at their will. The border is a sieve. There is no border control – period.

DHS imprisons border guards who actually do their jobs, like stopping an illegal from crossing our border. Our Justice Department sues Arizona for attempting to do the border job DHS was supposed to do. Does this sound like they are serious about stopping illegal immigration?

Obama recently announced he would allow illegal immigrants to remain in the US so long as they are not caught committing a crime. As a result, our Border Patrol has halted its long-standing routine searching of buses, trains and airports for illegal immigrants at transportation hubs. This routine has long been considered an effective tool for finding illegal immigrants. Now, these border patrol agents spend their days doing cross-word puzzles.

Do you see a pattern here? All the claimed reasons for HR 1505 are the result of federal laws or lack or enforcement of our Constitution. Now the feds want another law to supposedly cure the problems they created.

Second: We can’t trust DHS.

They are lying to us about their objectives and they don’t need 100 miles to patrol our border. A 1-mile strip along the border is sufficient to patrol our border. The 100-mile demand is about something else.

There is only one logical reason for DHS to install sensors virtually everywhere: HR 1505 is not about keeping bad guys out of America. It is about keeping Americans from escaping when they turn up the heat.

This federal government authority is unconstitutional, thanks to our constitution-impaired Congress.

The DHS-TSA inspections in our airports are a scam and a massive inconvenience. Any good weapons expert can get a weapon by them. TSA is training Americans to accept being fully controlled and body scanned. They are cooking us like frogs, slowly, so we become accustomed to the hot water and accept it.

Working with DHS, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) ran operation “Fast and Furious” allowing our enemy to purchase automatic weapons in America and walk them to Mexico.

According to the LA Times:

A federal operation dubbed Fast and Furious allowed weapons from the U.S. to pass into the hands of suspected gun smugglers so the arms could be traced to the higher echelons of Mexican drug cartels. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, which ran the operation, has lost track of hundreds of firearms, many of which have been linked to crimes, including the fatal shooting of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry in December 2010.

In the fall of 2009, ATF agents installed a secret phone line and hidden cameras in a ceiling panel and wall at Andre Howard’s Lone Wolf gun store. They gave him one basic instruction: Sell guns to every illegal purchaser who walks through the door.

DHS has printing-press money to hire Americans who have no other source of income and turn them into predators on other Americans.

Third: The SPLC is creating policy for DHS.

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), one of the nation’s leading hate groups, has direct ties to the Department of Homeland Security and is helping to write official DHS policy. As well summarized by Tom DeWeese, SPLC runs the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center that trains DHS and other law enforcement personnel in America.

The result of these close ties with SPLC is evident in these reports published by DHS:

A. “Right- wing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment
B. “Domestic Extremism Lexicon

DHS Report “A” says:

“Right-wing extremism in the United States can be broadly divided into those groups, movement, and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups), and those that are mainly anti- government, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.”

DHS Report “B” says the following types of persons are extremists, bordering on terrorism:

  • Those concerned over our economy, loss of jobs, or foreclosures;
  • Those who are antagonistic toward the Obama Administration;
  • Those who criticize free trade programs;
  • Those who are anti-abortion;
  • Those who oppose same sex marriage;
  • Those who believe in the “end times;”
  • Those who stock pile food;
  • Those who oppose illegal immigration;
  • Those who oppose a New World Order;
  • Those who oppose the UN;
  • Those who oppose global governance;
  • Those who fear of Communist regimes;
  • Those who oppose loss of US manufacturing to overseas nations;
  • Those who oppose loss of US prestige; and
  • Those who use the internet (or alternative media) to express any of these ideas.

Do any of these descriptions fit anyone you know?

DHS has established Fusion Centers in each state to combine federal, state and local law enforcement. Now your local law enforcement personnel are being indoctrinated by the SPLC. The DHS Missouri Fusion Center released the report:

C. The Modern Militia Movement.

DHS issued its Report “C” to law enforcement agencies as official documentation warning cops who they should consider potential violent terrorists. The list of potential terrorists includes:

  • Americans who voted for presidential candidate Ron Paul;
  • Constitution Party presidential candidate Chuck Baldwin; and
  • Libertarian Party presidential candidate Bob Barr.
  • And those who opposed the creation of a North American Union with Canada and Mexico.

Do we need any more evidence that we cannot trust DHS and that it should be abolished?

These 3 DHS reports are sufficient evidence alone to kill HR 1505 and abolish DHS. The inmates are truly in charge of the asylum.

Fourth: DHS is building fortresses.

See those icons of Border Patrol stations on the map?

Those are not your everyday Forest Service public information stations. According to anonymous eye witnesses, these Border Patrol stations are fortresses capable of keeping Obama’s Civilian Security Force (or a Chinese army) housed, fed, armed, and fully equipped to control the population of the United States. These Border Patrol Stations cannot be justified for border control.

These Border Patrol stations are not all on the border. They are not going to stop illegal border crossings. But if an enemy has already captured our federal government (as it has), then these stations are a perfect way to control you.

These Border Patrol stations have large underground fuel tanks (so when you run out of fuel for your home and vehicles, DHS will be able to control you). These Border Patrol stations have veterinarian facilities for dogs and horses (so DHS can follow and find you).

You have already read about how the federal government has purchased almost all the survival food from producers who formerly provided survival food to the public. Guess where this food went. George Soros is buying up Montana’s grain elevators.

With the environmentalists’ wolves, our federal government has pretty much decimated our wildlife food supply of moose and elk and much of the deer. The DHS sensor plan, they will keep you out of your hunting area.

When the shit hits the fan … as the federal government is gearing up to make happen, you will not have a chance against Obama’s federal army.

You thought you would be able to hold them off with your guns. You will run out of ammo and they won’t. You will run out of food and they won’t. You will run out of fuel and they won’t. They will take you in the ice cold weather when you cannot heat your home or even move. They will take you one at a time with an overpowering force any time they want you.

Years ago, no enemy would invade America because we had too many guns. Now, our enemy has constructed a way to invade us from within with government actions like HR 1505. We are allowing them, even paying them, to build fortresses right on our own backyard. We are fools.

The feds will keep a low profile until after the 2012 elections because they don’t want to scare citizens into voting for constitutional representatives.  Beginning in January 2013, they will tighten the screws.

Now, I have another question for you:

Given that our federal government has already sold some of our American land and military bases to China, what will you do when they sell the DHS fortresses to China?

Fifth: HR 1505 would take away our legal and constitutional rights.

While it may seem useful to rid our state of some outrageous environmental laws that are causing disasters with our wildlife and economy, the HR 1505 blanket removal of these environmental laws may come at a high price.

The really bad, unconstitutional environmental laws are those forcing non-indigenous wolves on our land and laws that derive from the scientifically unsound and insane delusion that our emissions of carbon dioxide are causing significant climate change.

HR 1505 comes with its own environmental laws to replace those it cancels. The difference is they will be under DHS control. Under the new rules, there is no guarantee about how Montana will be able to control wolf populations, or protect real endangered species like moose and elk. Unless we have authority to control wolf populations we could end up in a worse situation than now.

Another downside of removing the listed environmental laws is they contain important “coordination” requirements.

Coordination requires federal agencies to work with local representatives before approving environmental regulations. Under HR 1505, we would have no coordination rights. The fed would have the final say. This equivalent to giving away America.

Under HR 1505, you will have no legal right to bring a lawsuit against the DHS in a state court. DHS’s actions would be immune from court review, except for constitutional claims. Just as in the case of the EPA ruling against home owners in Idaho, the courts will dismiss our case, saying it is a federal administrative matter.

HR 1505 gives unconstitutional dictatorial power to the president and overrides state sovereignty, which is what our enemy wants.

Here is how DHS does Environmental Control.

DHS-CBP created an extensive Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (PEIS) to guide its invasion of our northern border. This PEIS says:

CBP is undertaking a comprehensive assessment of the impact of its activities along the U.S. – Canada Border in order to improve strategic planning for any future border security enhancements.

CBP is preparing the Northern Border PEIS to:

  • Assess the combined and cumulative effects of CBP activities along the Northern Border;
  • Improve strategic planning;
  • Incorporate public concerns about environmental impacts into CBP planning;
  • More effectively adapt and respond to an ever changing threat environment for any future border security enhancements; and,
  • Incorporate and tier into future site specific project planning by reference and general discussion.

The PEIS is intended to:

  • Provide CBP, the public, and other stakeholders with an understanding of the cumulative impacts from current CBP programs on the NB;
  • Evaluate the potential impacts of various action alternatives that would involve the expansion of those programs, which will inform CBP decision making going forward; and,
  • Define the potential levels of impacts regarding CBP’s security activities along the Northern Border.

The PEIS represents one element of the CBP approach to incorporate strategic planning, environmental and cultural stewardship considerations, and stakeholder outreach and involvement to improve accomplishment of its mission in balance with other important sustainability considerations. It is the means for providing your input, comments, and concerns.

CBP maintains a strong continued commitment to early stakeholder outreach and involvement to improve border security, transboundary trade and commerce, and the long-term sustainable productivity of the northern border regional environments.

As part of CBP’s effort in stakeholder outreach during project development, this website was developed to provide you with a resource for learning about the Northern Border PEIS effort, as well as, offer a means for providing your input, comments, and concerns.

Analysis: Notice all the eco-buzz words: comprehensive, strategic, cumulative, alternatives, environmental and cultural stewardship, sustainability, sustainable productivity.

These eco-buzz words mesmerize liberal eco-freaks who run most of our government and who control most environmental organizations. Mention these words and their eco-juices flow in their eco-freak brains like saliva flows in Pavlov dogs. So mesmerized, they do not stop to consider whether the government action is even in their interest. They simply think, “Yea, man. That sounds great!

Sixth: DHS plans to enforce UN Agenda 21.

On the CBP website, look under “Resources and Documents >> Materials” and you will find their Draft PEIS in detail. Let’s just pick one, “Chapter 4: West of the Rockies Region.” Scan the Contents. Looks pretty large doesn’t it. I see money, money, money wasted.

Their chapter title associating “climate change” with “sustainability” gives away that DHS is helping to implement the United Nations Agenda 21. The first paragraph below demonstrates DHS is based upon the climate change fraud. We cannot have a federal agency like DHS that is based upon a fraud.

4.7 CLIMATE CHANGE AND SUSTAINABILITY

INTRODUCTION 4.7.1

According to the 2009 U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) report, “Global Climate Change Impacts in the United States,” documented impacts to the Nation from climate change include increased average temperatures, more frequent heat waves, high-intensity precipitation events, sea-level rise, more prolonged droughts, and more acidic ocean waters, among others. … In 2010, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) identified global climate change as a long-term trend and global challenge that threatens America’s national-security interests (USDHS, 2010).

For U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), the concepts of sustainability and smart growth include the ability to adjust to changing geopolitical realities while preserving the environment and working to improve the quality of life for American residents and visitors.

To reduce environmental impacts and address the challenge of limited resources, the DHS prepared a “Strategic Sustainability Performance Plan” to promote sustainable planning, design, development, and operations. The guidelines aim to decrease energy use, minimize reliance on traditional fossil fuels, protect and conserve water, and reduce the environmental impact of materials use and disposal. CBP’s overarching goal is to size, plan, and carry out proposed development in a manner that is sustainable and that works to preserve and protect limited resources.

DHS has demonstrated its delusional mind set that human carbon dioxide emissions cause undesirable climate change. On this basis, under HR 1505, what is to stop DHS from closing down the Bakken oil fields and all other energy production within 100 miles of the Canadian border?

Their chapter title associating “environmental justice” with “protection of children” is further evidence the DHS is helping to implement the United Nations Agenda 21.

4.12 ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE AND PROTECTION OF CHILDREN

4.12.1 INTRODUCTION

Executive Order 12898 of February 11, 1994 (EO 12898, 1994), titled “Federal Actions to Address Environmental Justice in Minority Populations and Low-Income Populations,” requires that each Federal agency identify and address any disproportionately high and adverse effect of its programs, policies, and activities on minority and low-income populations.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) defines environmental justiceas “the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people regardless of race, color, national origin, or income with respect to the development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and policies” (USEPA, 2010).

And they are concerned about the “children.”

Executive Order 13045 of April 21, 1997 (EO 13045), titled “Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks,” places a high priority on the identification and assessment of environmental health and safety risks that may disproportionately affect children.”

EO 13045 considers that physiological and social development of children makes them more sensitive than adults to adverse health and safety risks and recognizes that children in minority, low-income, and indigenous populations are more likely to be exposed to, and have increased health risks from, environmental contamination than the general population (USEPA, 2010).

In summary, none of the DHS track record or written agenda has anything to do with keeping bad guys and their toys out of America. DHS is about implementing UN Agenda 21 and giving control of America to our enemies.

To put it bluntly, DHS is the beginning of Obama’s diabolical civilian national security force:

“We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”

We cannot afford to allow DHS to grow. We cannot afford to allow HR 1505 to pass.

In this article, we have shown:

  1. Politics is a triangle with the Constitution at the top.
  2. DHS is a beast with “seven heads.”
  3. DHS will control your travel, food, and water.
  4. The reasons for HR 1505 are invalid.
  5. We can’t trust DHS.
  6. The SPLC is creating policy for DHS.
  7. DHS is building fortresses.
  8. HR 1505 would take away our legal and constitutional rights.
  9. DHS plans to enforce UN Agenda 21.
  10. HR 1505 is a fatal betrayal of America

Here are 4 things you should do about HR 1505 and DHS:

  1. Encourage Congress to pass Congressman Rehberg’s “Sheriffs First” amendment to HR 1505. While this will not stop HR 1505, it will defang DHS much of the control over your life. Then you can focus on electing a good constitutional sheriff.
  2. Encourage Congress to reject HR 1505 and encourage Congressman Rehberg to vote against it, possibly using the excuse that Congress rejected his amendment.
  3. Elect a president, like Ron Paul, who will cancel HR 1505 by executive order. But … this is a long shot. Without a revolution in the minds of American voters, the favorites to be our next president are Obama or Hillary. It does not matter how much you wish or pray for Ron Paul, you still have only one vote. So when voting comes to your state after Romney or Cain are the only two possible nominees, you must be smart enough to vote for Cain, since only he has a chance to beat Obama or Hillary. If you do not, you will be helping elect Obama or Hillary.
  4. Most important: Elect the strongest-possible, constitutional, conservative team for your state governor, lt. governor, and attorney general. This should be your primary focus. You can accomplish this most important goal IF tea party voters truly choose the best such team. – As more information becomes available, I believe you will learn why Robert Fanning is the strongest-possible, constitutional governor you can elect to save Montana.
