I received this email from a trusted friend who forwarded it from her trusted friend. I have no idea if it’s the God’s honest truth or urban legend. It’s vitally important to verify the information.
Fact of Fiction?
Do you have a gun in your House?
When I had my gangrenous gallbladder taken out and spent an overnight stay which should have been 10 days if the insurance company had not kicked me out. I had a home nurse visits for two weeks and was asked if I had guns in the house. I responded that if I did I would not tell them. So the below has some merit.
FYI, I am passing this along…there are comments from two other people who have also been asked if we keep guns in the house. The nurse just kinda slipped it in along with all the other regular questions. I told her I refused to answer because it was against the law to ask.
Everyone, whether you have guns or not, should give a neutral answer so they have no idea who does and who doesn’t. My doctor asked me if I had guns in my house and also if any were loaded. I, of course, answered yes to both questions. Then he asked why I kept a loaded gun close to my bed. I answered that my son, who is a certified gun instructor and also works for Homeland Security, advised me that an unloaded, locked up gun is no protection against criminal attack.
The Government now requires these questions be asked of people on Medicare, and probably everyone else.
Just passing this along for your information: I had to visit a doctor other than my regular doctor when my doctor was on vacation.. One of the questions on the form I had to fill out was: Do you have any guns in your house?? My answer was None of your damn business!!
So it is out there! It is either an insurance issue or government intervention. Either way, it is out there and the second the government gets into your medical records (as they want to under Obamacare) it will become a major issue and will ultimately result in lock and load!!
Please pass this on to all the other retired guys and gun owners…Thanks, from a Vietnam Vet and retired Police Officer: I had a doctors appointment at the local VA clinic yesterday and found out something very interesting that I would like to pass along. While going through triage before seeing the doctor, I was asked at the end of the exam, three questions:1. Did I feel stressed? 2. Did I feel threatened? 3. Did I feel
like doing harm to someone?
The nurse then informed me, that if I had answered yes to any of the questions, I would have lost my concealed carry permit as it would have gone into my medical records and the VA would have reported it to Homeland Security.
Looks like they are going after the vets first. Other gun people like retired law enforcement will probably be next. Then when they go after the civilians, what argument will they have? Be forewarned and be aware. The Obama administration has gone on record as considering veterans and gun owners potential terrorists. Whether you are a gun owner, veteran or not, YOU’VE BEEN WARNED !
If you know veterans and gun owners, please pass this on to them. Be very cautious about what you say and to whom.
Security cameras are now everywhere — before private homes, in airports, inside and outside stores of every variety, at bank ATM booths, on street corners and intersections in cities big and small.
Now, we can add the humble street light to the ever-growing list of the Surveillance State.
Look out! Big Brother is Watching You.
Matt Roush reports for CBS Detroit that a company called Illuminating Concepts, based in Michigan’s Farmington Hills, launched its first “Intellistreets” concept installation in its hometown in October of last year, 2011.
Farmington Hills is using federal grant money to become the first site in the world to feature the Intellistreets system, a lighting pole system that combines energy conservation, audio entertainment, traffic control, advertising, homeland security features and more.
Intellistreets amounts to an intelligent wireless network, completely concealed within the street light pole. But it’s far more than a simple street light. Its lighting is variable for energy conservation and theming, reacting to natural light, the environment, and wireless commands. It has sensors to monitor foot and vehicle traffic. And it replaces static vinyl banners typically attached to light poles with LED screens. It can transmit information for emergency alerts, indicate evacuation routes or Amber Alert warnings, or hazardous environment alerts.
The system was invented by Illuminating Concepts founder Ron Harwood, who holds numerous patents in the lighting and multimedia fields.
On Oct. 28, 2011, politicians including Congressman Gary Peters and Farmington Hills Mayor Jerry Ellis headlined a ceremony to officially send the system live on 10 Mile Road in Farmington Hills.
Wow! We have three models to choose from for these new-fangled Intelligence Surveilliance street lamps!
This is how the company Illuminating Conceptsdescribesthese new “intelligent” street lights:
Illuminating Concepts, a Farmington Hills, Mich.-based architectural lighting company, revisited the ubiquitous light pole and found vast untapped potential. With a touch of technology, the simple light pole can be transformed into a product that is poised to completely change what is possible in an urban streetscape: Intellistreets. At its core, Intellistreets is a wireless light pole-based intelligent control system that addresses the needs of the modern cityscape. The system was designed to provide developers, urban planners and city officials with powerful new tools to enhance public safety, inform residents and visitors, and connect commercial, residential, hospitality and entertainment components. By using light poles as its foundation, the Intellistreets system takes advantage of the vast amount of infrastructure that already exists in cities around the world to transform urban corridors into environments that promote vitality, safetyand economic development. … Unlike other control and energy management systems, the Intellistreets system is intelligent. Not only is it possible to control or schedule functions such as lighting and audio, Intellistreets components can adapt to changes in the environment without any human intervention. If a light pole is damaged, neighboring light poles can route around the damage and continue to function. If communication throughout the system is disrupted for any reason, each light pole has the ability to continue to function independently. The Intellistreetssystem has the ability to learn over time, allowing unprecedented flexibility and automation. The Intellistreets base system consists of the following components: lighting control, wireless communication, concealed audio and alert indication.Additionaldigital video signage and data acquisition components are available to further enhance functionality. … A concealed speaker housed within the base of the light pole provides clear, high-quality, 360-degree dispersion audio without being visible. The audio capabilities of Intellistreetscan be used for many different audio applications, such as background music, paging and announcements, emergency alert information, and even sirens. The Intellistreets system supports visible LED alert indicators that can easily be programmed for a wide range of uses. Alert indicators can be used to direct people to an exit in the case of an emergency, or could be used to indicate a faulty lamp source to maintenance personnel. Alert indicators can also be used as part of a larger security system to provide safety benefits. … The Intellistreets system offers the ability to add digital video signage in the form of a large LED banner to a light pole, much like the vinyl banners currently seen in city environments. Unlike vinyl banners, LED banners can display a wide variety of continually changing content, including both still images and video. This opens up endless possibilities for revenue generation through advertising, as well as intuitive and localized way-finding and video-based public service announcement. Data Acquisition A wide range of sensors can be added to the Intellistreets system, including weather and environmental sensors, toxic gas, radiation and other atmospheric monitoring and alert systems. Footfall sensors can be added to gather and relay valuable information regarding pedestrian traffic, which can assist city planners, managers & DDA directors. All of this data can be intelligently shared between poles to enable the system to adapt and react by itself, as well as enabling advanced reporting functionality as an adjunct to Homeland Security, emergency management and municipal operations. … An Idea Whose Time Has Come With its enhanced energy efficiency capabilities and security benefits, Intellistreets is a natural candidate for stimulus funding, and the system’s unique municipal, educational, commercial, and even military applications are limited only by the imagination. With Intellistreets, Illuminating Concepts has re-imagined the light pole and redefined conventional notions about what is possible in the modern urban landscape.
Yes, indeed! In the name of “safety” and “homeland security,” these “intelligent” street lights will alert and protect us from all sorts of threats and hazards!
We are the Government, and we’re just here to help you! Just sign on the dotted line on this Faustian Bargain contract!
Meanwhile, the powers and capabilities of Government grow ever bigger…. ~Eowyn
Ben Swann’s Reality Check is a regular feature of Cincinnati Fox 19. Commenters on his Facebook page asked how he gets away with covering stories none of the other MSM will touch. He said it’s because, despite it’s name, Fox 19 is not under the restraint of a big media corporation. It is fully-employee owned and the reporters are allowed much greater editorial discretion. That’s why “it’s the news you won’t hear anywhere else.”

We knew this was coming. Some of us even predicted it.
First, they showed up in airports. Then they were in bus terminals in Florida. Now they on Tennessee’s interstate hi-ways.
In an article for NewsChannel5.com, with a headline (“Tennessee Becomes First State To Fight Terrorism Statewide“) that Janet Napolitano must just love, love , love, Adam Ghassemi writes from Portland, Tennessee, that TSA (Transportation Security Administration) agents in their signature blue uniforms are hitting the interstates “to fight terrorism with Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response” (VIPER).
This week, Tennessee became the first state to deploy VIPER simultaneously at five weigh stations and two bus stations across the state. The Tennessee Highway Patrol checked trucks with drug and bomb sniffing dogs during random inspections.
Agents are recruiting truck drivers, like Rudy Gonzales, into the First Observer Highway Security Program to say something if they see something. But it’s not just truck drivers. “Everybody” is urged to “be aware of what’s going on, on the road,” and to call authorities if they see something suspicious.
Tennessee Department of Safety & Homeland Security Commissioner Bill Gibbons said, “Where is a terrorist more apt to be found? Not these days on an airplane more likely on the interstate.”
Paul Armes, TSA Federal Security Director for Nashville International Airport, said: “Somebody sees something somewhere and we want them to be responsible citizens, report that and let us work it through our processes to abet the concern that they had when they saw something suspicious.” “The bottom line is this: if you see something suspicious say something about it,” Gibbons said.
The random inspections really aren’t any more thorough normal, according to Tennessee Highway Patrol Colonel Tracy Trott who says paying attention to details can make a difference. Trott pointed out it was an Oklahoma state trooper who stopped Timothy McVeigh for not having a license plate after the Oklahoma City bombing in the early 1990s. Tuesday’s statewide “VIPER” operation isn’t in response to any particular threat, according to officials.
You can see the news video of this here.
Don’t say you weren’t warned.
Back on November 22, 2010, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano had hinted that those invasive body searches may be coming to trains, subways, and boats. She merely left out interstate hi-ways.
According to Wikipedia, the Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response (VIPR, or VIPER), is a TSA program. Various government sources have differing descriptions of VIPR’s exact mission. It is specifically authorized by 6 U.S.C.§ 1112 which says that the program is to “augment the security of any mode of transportation at any location within the United States”. Authority for the program is under the Secretary of Homeland Security.
The VIPR teams detain and search citizens at railroad stations, bus stations, ferries, car tunnels, ports, subways, truck weigh stations, rest areas, and special events. They also can deploy to deal with CBRNE/WMD (chemical, biological, radioactive, nuclear, and explosive weapons of mass destruction). They also do inspections of ships, containers, and vehicles.
Welcome to the UPSA, the United Police States of America! ~Eowyn
The “terrorists” that Homeland Security uses in this video don’t look anything like the real terrorists of this world.
Since Rammadan began just 20 days ago, the “religion of peace” has been responsible for 107 terror attacks and 466 deaths, according to the religionofpeace.com. Number of terrorist attacks and dead bodies resulting from said attacks by “anti-muslim right wingers”: BIG FAT ZERO.
You can be as PC as you want Janet Napalitano, it’s not going to change the FACTS.
This reminds me of the anarchists riots in Seattle to shut down the WTO meetings. By the way, Sept 17th is Constitution Day. It also happens to be a Saturday. So the kids will be out of school, available to riot; but, for the Wall Street grownups, it’s their day off. I seriously doubt it will disrupt any business. The last time I was in New York City there weren’t even very many retailers in that part of town; but, it’s been awhile. Maybe they can liberate up a free frappacino from a Starbucks barista making $10.00 an hour and a share of the tip jar. Not many bigscreen TV retailers in the financial district of New York City, as I recall. Unless it’s a slow news day, local TV may not even send a news crew to “cover” the event.
For rioters planning an event in Olympia, the State Capital of Washington State, Olympia has long been considered one of the most progressive towns in a very “blue” state. It is very likely the governor and state agency heads will lock arms with you and sing a couple of rounds of “We Shall Overcome” for old time’s sake. They’re mostly a bunch of 1960s hippie radicals. The legislature is not in session. ~LTG
DAY OF RAGE PLANNED FOR D.C., STATE CAPITOLS and WALL STREET SEPT 17, 2011
This information came out of Idaho, but this is being staged across the entire 50 states! We need to be aware and let others know, especially those that live in the capitals, or have businesses there. If you’ve seen the riots taking place in Greece, or those in the Middle East, you see a sample of what it looks like they are planning. Let’s hope that either few show up, that they stay peaceful, or that the law enforcement agencies are able to thwart it before it occurs…. Bill Turner, Boise Conservative Examiner
The leftists call this a non-violent event, yet their website, Craigslist ads and Facebook postings include information on how to resist arrest, protest in jail and fight the legal system. The anarchists, Marxists and communists have put together a plan, from start to finish, to takeover America. There will be trouble. The only real question, at this point, is what are the Department of Homeland Security, the FBI, the NSA and others going to do to stop this? So far, no one in the media is talking about this insurrection, aside from Glenn Beck who told of it months ago. What will you and your family do to do be safe and save our way of life? It is obvious that the commander in chief has no intention of stopping this coming event, these are, after all, his political base.
The purveyors of the Day of Rage have done their best to make their cause sound as if it is Libertarian or Conservative, but as one reads through the material, it becomes apparent that they are masking their origins and intent. Corporations are blamed for much of the ills, including the suppression of “free and fair elections“. Hiding under the guise of ‘one person/one vote’ and campaign finance reform, fitting the ideology of B. Hussein Obama, as stated in his chastising of the Supreme Court during his State of the Union Address, they seek to implement social justice and a democracy, undermining the republic and electoral college process, turning elections into a popularity contest.
The Anti-American organizers of this even, seek to have protests in all fifty state capitols, the nations capitol and to crush the capitalist economy by disrupting Wall Street. Despite repeatedly stating their goal is non-violence, this subversive organization lists the following among their plans:
* They call for civil disobedience and include plans on how to disrupt court, arrest and the jail system.
* Civil disobedience training is available.
* Directions on responding with resistance to being restrained.
* Classes on forming Affinity Groups and collectively resisting law enforcement. Read Full Article Here US Day of Rage Website
Expanding the Nationwide Suspicious Activity Reporting (SAR) Initiative (NSI)
The Department is working closely with the Department of Justice-led Nationwide Suspicious Activity Reporting Initiative Program Management Office to establish a standard process to identify and report suspicious activity in jurisdictions across the country. Under the leadership of I&A, the Department has made it a priority to participate in and support the implementation of the NSI while also integrating SAR processes across the National Network of Fusion Centers. The integration of NSI within both the Department and the fusion centers is a key element of fusion center outreach to law enforcement at all levels of government.
The Department has also launched the “If You See Something, Say Something™” campaign in order to engage the public to identify and report indicators of terrorism, crime, and other threats. (What are “other threats”?)
