Farm Wars

On June 9, 2011, the Obama Administration Established the “White House Rural Council to Strengthen Rural Communities” via Executive Order. “Strengthening Rural Communities” is the spin. The real issue is control. Rural communities are where food is grown, and control of food is a main priority for the New World Order.

So, who is in charge of this Council? Why the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture, Tom Vilsack, of course! 

Sec. 3. Membership. (a) The Secretary of Agriculture shall serve as the Chair of the Council… (PDF of E.O.)

Just what is this new Rural Council?

The White House Rural Council will coordinate programs across government to encourage public-private partnerships to promote further economic prosperity and quality of life in rural communities nationwide. Chaired by Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack, the Council will be responsible for providing recommendations for investment in rural areas and will coordinate Federal engagement with a variety of rural stakeholders, including agricultural organizations, small businesses, and state, local, and tribal governments.  

Well, that is sufficiently vague to encompass just about anything. The following video describes its true agenda, which is to usher rural farming communities straight into the total control of Agenda 21.


And just what is one of the first things that Secretary Vilsack, as Chair of the Council going to do? Attack rural America with Smart Meters.

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack joined Administration officials today to announce initiatives aimed at modernizing the nation’s electric grid, including USDA’s goal to invest $250 million in smart grid equipment deployment in rural America over the next 12 months.

What a Smart Grid does

In the United States, the Smart Grid concept is defined [2] as the modernization of the nation’s electricity transmission and distribution system to maintain a reliable and secure electricity infrastructure that can meet future demand growth and to achieve each of the following, which together characterize a Smart Grid:

(1) Increased use of digital information and controls technology to improve reliability, security, and efficiency of the electric grid.

(2) Dynamic optimization of grid operations and resources, with full cyber-security.

(3) Deployment and integration of distributed resources and generation, including renewable resources.

(4) Development and incorporation of demand response, demand-side resources, and energy-efficiency resources.

(5) Deployment of `smart’ technologies (real-time, automated, interactive technologies that optimize the physical operation of appliances and consumer devices) for metering, communications concerning grid operations and status, and distribution automation.

(6) Integration of `smart’ appliances and consumer devices.

(7) Deployment and integration of advanced electricity storage and peak-shaving technologies, including plug-in electric and hybrid electric vehicles, and thermal-storage air conditioning.

(8) Provision to consumers of timely information and control options.

(9) Development of standards for communication and interoperability of appliances and equipment connected to the electric grid, including the infrastructure serving the grid.

(10) Identification and lowering of unreasonable or unnecessary barriers to adoption of smart grid technologies, practices, and services.

What this means to you

A smart grid will put into place “digitally controlled devices that can alter the nature of the electrical load (giving the electric company the ability to turn off appliances in your home if they see fit.”

If you are using too much electricity, the kill switch is there to make sure that you are in compliance with mandated electrical usage. If you are trying to grow food, and your electrical consumption is high because of it, you can be cut off. No electricity means no water. No water means no crops. This is a total control grid.

Unlike traditional electric meters that merely record power use – and then must be read in-person once a month by a meter reader – Smart Meters measure consumption in real time. By being networked to computers in electric utilities, the new meters can signal people or their appliances to take certain actions, such as reducing power usage when electricity prices spike…

The system also has the ability to remotely disconnect or reconnect service…

The noose is tightening, and food is on the menu for complete corporate control. Control the food, and you control the people. Control the water, and you control the food. Control the electricity needed to pump the water, and you effectively place that noose squarely around our nation’s neck.

    I know a gal who is already altering her lifestyle, in SMALL ways, to try to cultivate the mindset that “‘They’do NOT have the right to run my life”, and “I really DO have the ability to make my own decisions.” She’s already exercising independence in some areas, while learning how to be independent in others…& yes, garage sales are one factor, LOL…For now, she will(for example) leave lights on at night & turn them off during the day, as one example, so they can’t really get a consistent reading of when she is using their electricity. She says it takes a little effort to remember, but that the sheer pleasure of even just attempting to outwit a corporation, makes up for the nuisance. It’s a small thing; but she is doing other stuff too, to be more independent. The hard part is keeping her mouth shut so others dont think they can rely on her if the S hits the [windmill?]…she wants others to know this is important but doesn’t want to be the one to say it. So, I say it.

  3. Joe S says:

    Sgt. Electric hit it right on the head people! FORCING A SHIFT IN USAGE PATTERNS. So now the government is going to have the ability to force us into the usage patterns they see fit. These monkeys cannot even balance a checkbook, borrowing 40% a year, and they think they can handle this? Wow…

  4. In response to Joe’s posting of July 25. ‘ So right on Joe!’I am looking for someone to have the genius and start making solar energy set-ups for those of us who want and need it at a price a retired person on Social Security can afford. There need to be several individuals in every state, who will take up the challenge as a sideline buisness, more in the scope of being a ministry.How about it folks ? Anybody have enough creative power flowing within his/her being to take on this challenge and grab the golden opportunity, be of real help to those of us who are wanting to help mother earth, go green, and reduce our monetary monthly outflow on utility costs ?
    This type of activity needs to be a concerted effort by individuals, who are going whole hoag and apply themselves for the good of humanity, cover the cost for materials and enough to live on. The quantity will bring in adequate profits.

  5. Hi Joe,

    I agree with everything you have said, but would like to offer this: When we start fostering prejudices against others simply because of their ethnicity, heritage, cultural affiliation, etc., then we simply play into the NWO plan of pitting us against each other. I am referring to your statement regarding the “Jewish boob tube.” All Jews are not responsible for the brainwashing that comes out of it, just like not all Muslims are responsible for terrorism. This is a game that is used against us.

  6. joe bassett says:

    One way or anotherthe government or corporations are going to find a way to control us. The government has already made it illegal to collect rain water. That’s it folks. How many ever thought this would ever happen? When you can’t collect ground water it’s time to find the S.O.B. that even suggested such a law and just get rid of him. The government has tried to make supplements illegal. They won’t let people sell cow’s milk or goats milk off the family farm. They want to regulate people if they grow a garden and want to sell their produce. WHat has happened is people have learned about vitamins and the fact that pasteurizing everything just gives it longer shelf life, but they create something that has no nutrional value. People have to understand if you heat something it kills all the good stuff. When you microwave something it kills all the good stuff.
    The government wants you sick, drunk and dumb. You notice things you need like food and gas it’s going through the roof, but beer is still $3.50 a six pack. They have lied to us about everything. Slowly people are learning that what they say about cancer is a lie. The poor people are supposed to be drunk and dumb. When the poor people wake up and put down the beer can, turn off the Jewish boob tube, exercise, quit eating junk food and if this was the case the grocery stores would have to close.

  7. Henry says:

    Rick, I don’t think those who are off the grid are gloating and saying that everyone should get off the grid. They are encouraging those who can do so, to go for it. And those who are restricted in their ability to get off the grid, can still do a few things to mitigate their dependence on the grid. If day-time use electricity is charged at a much higher rate than night-time use, it may be worthwhile to invest in a battery bank and charger and inverter, so that you can set the charger (via a timer) to re-charge the battery bank during times when electricity is cheapest (at night), and the inverter can supply you with the AC mains you need from the power in the battery bank. This would also have the effect of shielding your electricity usage patterns from prying eyes (a.k.a. “smart meters”) AND provide you with back-up power in the event of failure of the grid supply (but only for the amount of energy your battery bank will hold).
    Those with rural properties can try solar-electric panels and solar water-heating panels, as well as solar ovens. Windmills can be purchased or hand made (I made a few, it’s fairly easy) to either provide electricity or to pump water. An old car engine can be adapted as a stationary generator, or you could buy one ready-made if you prefer. Where there is a will there is a way, you don’t NEED to rely on the electricity grid!

  8. Rick Carufel says:

    Here’s a quote from Xcel energy’s website in Minnesota that proves they can remotely control electrical devices with smart meters.

    “The Saver’s Switch program allows Xcel Energy by remote control to cycle central air conditioner compressor units on and off at 15 to 20 minute intervals while the fan stays on circulating previously cooled air. Customers enrolled in the program receive a 15 percent discount on their electricity bills for all four summer months regardless of whether their air conditioning units are ever turned off.”

    But alternately a search for “smart meters” on their website brings up nothing. This is deceptive businesses practices at its worst.

  9. Rick Carufel says:

    It is completely lame for a few people with the resources to “get off the grid” to tout that as a solution. Of the few thousand who can afford to do that or have the technical expertise, there are over 200 million people for whom that is not a feasable solution. This is not a venue for a few smarmy fools to brag, “I got off the grid, so should you.” The problem or the solution is not to get off the grid, it is to force the power companies to remove the smart meters. No doubt they are far costlier to manufacture than the mechanical ones. So the solution is simple, connect the dots.

  10. Apostate says:

    In Australia smart meters have been installed on some houses. People living there have complained about ringing in their ears and symptoms that would result from being inside a low-powered microwave oven. Smart meters have also been known to cause fires.

    On the subject of becoming independent of the power companies, I have built and tested small Bedini motor-generators. My next project is to replicate the Ed Gray motor-generator. These things are very interesting and well worth a google search. Maybe I’m a terror suspect now, since I went to a specialist company to buy a large roll of fine-gauge wire.

  11. David says:

    Every time now in the “government is broke” part I keep thinking that would not financial reports reflecting governments 56 to 70 percent ownership in the stock of the mega corps have some effect? It certainly would appear so in the Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports or the publics checkbook bank account cash status investments balances etc.
    So UN is funded mostly by US and US owns 65 percent to 70 percent of total econimic corporate wealth even moving companies off shore to increase stock returns companie value etc. World corporate structure can be bought and sold contractualized big ammounts at one time and even a monopoly. Agenda 21 talks about the new industrial technical revolution and development. Like “green” spewing toxins billion dollar a minute factories producing greens in owners pocket. Hard to own a small farmer or private small business or person.

  12. joe bassett says:

    Wind turbines charge batteries that can be used anytime I thought. You have solar that can eat water and heat your home. Plus you have Tesla’s radiant free electric and Edison had a way to get free electricity. But it wasn’t so long ago they didn’t have electricity. The average home owner doesn’t need that much electricity. You might need to run your frig. You might need to run AC at night. But you need to get rid of your plasma tv. If you didn’t electricity you would can and air dry your food. You would use kerosene lamps for lights. Other than that you can easily get by without electricity.

  13. We have lived off grid since 1999, with photovoltaic and small PRIVATE wind generators, plus diesel generator when there is neither sun nor wind.

    The home is perfectly normal with light switches, and regular wiring for those who aren’t sure what solar is really about. We have an inverter, batter storage capability and even the ability to pump our well by hand if needed,

    Since we create our own electricity we are naturally conservative, so it’s easy to operate a normal household. If you’re completely off grid, there is a learning curve, it’s not push button, and will take resourceful folks to handle unplanned emergencies.

    If you’re a city dweller, solar roof panels can be tied in with or without a grid system.

    Here’s the beautiful, unfinished, log home…most people who visit call this a little piece of heaven, we call it self sufficient. By the way, grid electricity is available, not interested at any price.


    California PUD and WHO recently declared Smart Meters class 2 carcinogenic. Beyond that, with Smart Meters how easy to shut off your in house greenhouse for illegal food production that will be coming.

  14. greg says:

    Barbara, I think you’ve been smoking too much of your homegrown. While I believe in just about everything written here, I do not believe it is the intent of the power companies to shut off power to the people that pay for power. Doesn’t make a lot of sense there. But then niether does PG&E’s line of better service. I went 22 days without power last winter. The only benefit to the smart meter that I found was that when the power came back on, the numbers would read again, telling me to turn my generator off. On the flip side, my power was out for 22 days, yet my bill did not go down that month. What’s up with that? It’s all about money! PG&E will remove my smartmeter for $20 a month extra. Wow, now there’s a savings. In short, I have to agree with Peter. The 200 amp house will be a thing of the past. We’re ALL trying to get off the grid!

  15. matthew says:

    The Answer?……GET OFF THE GRID. Use Solar Panels, wind generators and build magnetic zero point devices to charge up batteries and produce power. Run you homes, wells and other needs from energy that is NOT provided via the grid.

    The less we are all dependent on the Federal systems, the more INDEPENDENT we become. Don’t sit back and worry; be Pro-Active and self reliant.

  16. “Thousands of people have submitted written health complaints to the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), and in May the World Health Organization made an earth shattering declaration- that non-ionizing radiation from cell phones, cell towers, wifi, and “smart” meters, has been linked with a number of cancers. “Smart” meter radiation is now categorized as a class 2b carcinogen in the same cancer causing category as lead, DDT, and engine exhaust. Nevertheless, PG&E continues to maintain that their meters are safe. ”

  17. Exactly, Peter. A complete shift in thinking and living is necessary.

  18. Peter says:

    American farms in the thirtys’s used small windmills and alternators to power tube radios ,houses were built and situated to use the sun to advantage.
    Don’t think about windmills powering the grid,forget the grid!!!
    Think about supplying your own needs.(which will have to be scaled way back to use the energy at hand).
    Solar works well if you are using it just for lights and computers and a 12volt freezer.
    Think about a windmill pumping water to an overhead tank.
    But forget about maintaining your 200 amp house.

  19. Dona Sharee says:

    The USDA is now the US Department of Annihilation.

  20. sgt. electric says:

    Wind? Solar? ARE YOU CRAZY? Smart meters are all about integrating wind into the grid by forcing a shift in usage patterns. By charging up to 3 times as much for kilowatt hours used during the middle of the day, they are closing the control grid over you. In Texas and California class action lawsuits against smart meter implementation tell the story of doubled electric bills.

    Wind power doesn’t work. You can’t rely on it and the same for solar. IT IS PURE NON-SENSE. Wind produces during hours it is not needed (at night when most people are asleep, not using electricity) 20 percent of all the power produced in Denmark is coming from wind. BUT DENMARK ONLY USES 2% of that wind power!! WHY? Because the rest (18%) is dumped onto the European grid at night at a very low sales price because it comes at night when not needed. They count the energy generated because they have to count it since the government mandated wind power there too. But they then tell you it is next to useless when you look at demand/supply matching. You can’t match the supply of wind to the demand. Wind is not controllable.

    Study physics before you comment on here and spread the disinformation of the controllers. When you tout wind as the answer you fall for their tricks and their lies.

  21. John Taurus says:

    Cover the meter with foil.

  22. John Taurus says:

    The citizens now view the government in the same light as the neighborhood murderer and thief. When a citizen sees a government official, he/she knows the trouble is about to begin and their wealth and hard earned belongings are going to be stolen by some government official. A thief and murderer is still a thief and murder no matter if that thief and murderer is dressed in a suit or wearing a mask. The outcome is the same.

  23. Vivek says:

    Like everything else, smart meters can be made to look/sound/feel good in a million, myriad ways.

    The good thing and I think Barbara might have missed it even as she wrote it… no power, no water? Hmmmm, that is where we need to get back to our own power and ingenuity eh?
    Perhaps if the current (ha!) power (double Ha!!) supply crashes, rather when it does, we will re-discover our own.

    Till then, machine strong, human weak!


  24. Rick Carufel says:

    The controversy rages nation-wide over smart meters. Some say the radio frequency is 100 times that of cell phones and can cause cancer. Some say they are a hazzard having already been responsible for several explosions and/or fires. Others say they are not accurate and falsely raise utility bills. While this controversey rages, with some states passing legislation making it a matter of choice, as usual, things are different here in Minnesota.

    I had issues with my internet connection today, and when the cable guy came, I went outside to find that Xcel has already installed smart meters, on the building in which I live.
    I recieved no notice, at all, that my regular meter was going to be swapped for the more costly, for me, and dangerous smart meter. One would at least expect notice, from Xcel, that this was going to happen. But it appears that Xcel has chosen to quietly try and sneak them in on us, whether we want one or not.

    Please, if you do not want a meter that is a health hazzard, is dangerous and will result in higher bills, let your power company know that you do not approve of sneak tatics to attach these dangerous and pricier devices to your homes, without your consent or your knowledge.

  25. Andy says:

    It’s a good idea, to get of the system if possible.
    Solar, wind-power & zero point energy is the way to go!

    Boycott the dirty self-serving elite (if possible)!

    time to go solar, folks. Wind power, water power, sun power…do NOT rely on the NWO…they are not for us at all. They simply want us as slaves and to have complete control over us for their own profit. Time to turn the tables on them and drop out of their game.
