USDA Attacks Rural America with Smart Meters

By Barbara H. Peterson

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.

The attached legaleze letter may have gotten me opted out.  It's long, but you are welcome to use it as the author's intent is to have it used far and wide.  Note that I got a call from consumer services at APS after sending it certified and dropping it off locally.  After a lengthy discussion, the CS person said that I have her personal assurance that I will not be getting a Smart Meter until the Opt Out Program is completed.  Whatever that means.  I asked her for a letter to me that would legally reflect her personal assurance.  She stated one is forthcoming.  For anyone interested, I will keep you posted as to what it says.

By the way, many in our community have tried to opt out with varying degrees of success.  One gal was given a lecture on the safety of Smart Meters by our local APS, and how it would cost her "a lot" to opt out and basically how presumptuous she was to request an opt out.  Another friend said they responded with "OK we won't give you one" (but nothing in writing). 


Dear Arizona Public Service (APS) and all agents, officers, employees, contractors and interested parties:

If you plan to install a "Smart Meter" or any similar activity-monitoring device at the above address, I hereby deny you and all other parties consent for installation and use of all such devices on the above properties. Installation and use of any activity-monitoring device is hereby refused and prohibited.

Under the protections in the 4th amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America, which is the supreme law of the land, informed consent is legally required for installation of any surveillance device and any device that will collect and transmit private and personal data to undisclosed and unauthorized parties for undisclosed and unauthorized purposes. The text of the 4th Amendment of the Constitution is cited immediately below:

The 4th Amendment to the Constitution:

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Authorization for sharing of personal and private information may only be given by the originator and subject of that information. Such authorization is hereby denied and refused with regard to the above property and its occupants.

"Smart Meters" violate constitutional and state laws and cause endangerment to residents by the following factors:

1.  They individually identify electrical devices inside the home and record when they are operated, causing invasion of privacy.

2.  They monitor household activity and occupancy in violation of constitutional rights and domestic security.              

 3.  They transmit wireless signals that may be intercepted by unauthorized and unknown parties. Those signals can be used to monitor behavior and occupancy and they can be used by criminals to aid criminal activity against the occupants.

4.  Data about occupant's daily habits and activities are collected, recorded and stored, by these devices, in permanent databases which are accessed by parties not authorized or invited to know and share that private data by those whose activities were recorded.

5.  Those with access to the smart meter databases can review a permanent history of household activities complete with calendar and time-of-day metrics to gain a highly invasive and detailed view of the lives of the occupants. This is a clear violation of the 4th Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America.

6.  Tho


My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.
Thomas Jefferson



The best in books to make every conservative start thinking in new ways about America and the world being controlled by the Obama Administrations AND Republicans and Democrats.  Some surprises are in store for those who look!




Suppose the earth and its inhabitants exist in order to identify just what causes mankind continually to suffer so many troublesome problems and afflictions.
