TransCore: developer of RFID transportation applications. Why are they working in my neighborhood?

TransCore came to my attention during a ride through my neighborhood this past weekend.

First, let me say that I live in a podunk city. It’s not big and it’s not important. Nevertheless, there are traffic cameras everywhere. In fact, their placement makes it impossible to arrive in or depart from the city without being filmed. Most of the cameras are not for traffic violations, as those are posted with this sign:

photo enforced

Those cameras are pointed at the back of the car, where the license plate is located. The rest of the traffic cameras are directed at the front of the car, toward the face of the driver. Most of them look like this:

traffic camera 02

Although one of them looks like this:

traffic camera 01

The next major intersection after the one with this type of camera does not have anything that I can recognize as a camera. That’s where I saw the TransCore van. It was parked at the southwest corner of the intersection.

What caught my attention was that the van had a flashing blue light. That’s why I looked at the logo. The logo further caught my attention, as “core” struck me as being an Agenda 21 buzzword. I later realized I was thinking of “common core,” the government’s imposition of its “standards” (some would say “agenda”) on local schools.

In our state, the flashing blue light is only used for police vehicles and the vehicles of “salespersons, service representatives, or other employees of businesses licensed to sell or repair law enforcement equipment.”

The cameras for the local traffic violation scheme are serviced by another company whose contract isn’t up for several years. (That company is American Traffic Solutions, or ATS.) In addition, TransCore seems a bit too high tech to be servicing red light cameras.

Here is a bit of what I’ve discovered about TransCore:

TransCore is a subsidiary of Roper Industries. According to its official website:

TransCore’s 75-year heritage supporting the transportation industry spans the development of RFID transportation applications at Los Alamos National Labs to implementation of the nation’s first electronic toll collection system. The breadth of the company’s expertise includes traffic management systems, intelligent transportation systems (ITS), systems integration, design consulting, operations, maintenance, RFID manufacturing, and extensive Web-based logistics systems.

Wikipedia‘s definition of RFID:

Radio-frequency identification (RFID) is the wireless non-contact use of radio-frequency electromagnetic fields to transfer data, for the purposes of automatically identifying and tracking tags attached to objects.

Some people call them “spy chips” and they’re everywhere; for example, there’s probably one in your dog, and they’re placed in many retail products to help thwart shoplifting. It seems TransCore developed the technology used in E-ZPass and other highway toll systems.

More from TransCore’s website:

TransCore is also one of the largest global manufacturers of transportation-based RFID technology with more than 51 million RFID tags and 70,000 readers deployed worldwide in various transportation applications such as electronic toll collection, traffic management, rail, truck, container, barge and intermodal tracking and monitoring, homeland security border control, airport ground transportation, parking, and secure vehicle access control.

In other words, “they” are tracking people and goods all over the globe. The Wikipedia article on TransCore offers further information on the company’s products and designs.

So why is TransCore working at an intersection in my podunk city? There are no toll roads anywhere nearby. There are no airports or railways and that particular street is not the main thoroughfare for truck traffic; rather, the truck route is a few blocks over and is the one with the red light cameras. If anyone’s looking for a small, unimportant city, this would be it. So why is TransCore here?

“Privacy” is becoming an illusion

“Privacy” has several meanings. All are being attacked by the global elite and those implementing their agenda.

Private is the opposite of public. It has to do with the individual, rather than the community at large.

News of the so-called spy scandals reveals that many of our activities are no longer private. For example, when a government agent views a record of your Internet activity, your recent web surfing is no longer private.

An illusion is an erroneous perception of reality. Now that there are traffic and security cameras all around our neighborhoods and most of our gadgets can be used to spy on us, we really have no expectation of privacy in anything we do, even in what we believe to be our most private spaces.

Two recently-published articles clearly illustrate our lack of privacy. One was The Public-Private Surveillance Partnership at Bloomberg.com. In part, it states:

Imagine the government passed a law requiring all citizens to carry a tracking device. Such a law would immediately be found unconstitutional. Yet we all carry mobile phones.

If the National Security Agency required us to notify it whenever we made a new friend, the nation would rebel. Yet we notify Facebook Inc. (FB) If the Federal Bureau of Investigation demanded copies of all our conversations and correspondence, it would be laughed at. Yet we provide copies of our e-mail to Google Inc. (GOOG), Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) or whoever our mail host is; we provide copies of our text messages to Verizon Communications Inc. (VZ), AT&T Inc. (T) and Sprint Corp. (S); and we provide copies of other conversations to Twitter Inc., Facebook, LinkedIn (LNKD) Corp. or whatever other site is hosting them.

The second article was How you’re tracked digitally all day:

Our daily habits — when we wake up, how we get to work, what we like to watch when we get home — are being tracked by dozens of interconnected systems, from cell carriers to traffic cameras. Together, they could form a picture of your day in disturbingly high fidelity…

As a demonstration, TODAY followed NBC News producer Robin Oelkers during a normal weekday, noting the many times when his ordinary actions placed him on the grid.

It began as soon as he woke up, checking emails and Facebook on his phone or laptop while getting ready for work — any number of servers took note that his account began a session between 7:30 and 8 a.m.

By logging in with his home Internet connection, Robin’s IP address and its location are also automatically recorded at any site he uses.

Meanwhile, in order to have a signal, his phone must be in contact with at least one cell tower, but may be monitored by several in case as he begins to move. These towers can be used to calculate his position to within a city block or two.

“Your mobile phone is basically a tracking device,” said Nick Thompson, editor of NewYorker.com, in an interview that aired Thursday. “(It’s) taking information about where you are, and sending it to lots and lots of companies.”

When it comes to tracking, you don’t have to log in via a Web browser or set up your phone a certain way to tell the world to start following your trail. Recently, Apple was caught keeping records of every wireless network iPhones encountered. And several phone makers were found in 2012 to be including a secret back door on their phones capable of reporting every touch, every byte, and every conversation to anyone with the right software.

Leaving the house, Robin enters the view of the public, and therefore the view of any number of traffic and security cameras. Many of these cameras will passively record his license plate, using special software to convert the image into numbers and letters. The make, model, and color of his car is also recorded in some situations.

Other cameras capture his face and appearance, associating him with locations and routes. Such tools are invaluable to police tracking down a fugitive, but in the meantime Robin’s face and license may be stored for days, years, or even indefinitely, depending on local laws or business practices.

Of course, all this indirect surveillance is redundant when Robin’s car has been tracking his position constantly with its GPS system. Depending on how new the car is, that route information might be backed up to the cloud for easy retrieval, or even collated (anonymously) with other cars’ paths to help analyze traffic patterns.

After parking (in view of several cameras), Robin may stop by Starbucks to grab a coffee. Swiping his rewards card, he adds this purchase to a long list of data points describing his preferences and shopping habits. Such data may be kept internal at Starbucks for inventory and promotional purposes.

At work, he mixes his daily duties on the computer with a bit of personal browsing. Even though they may be inconsequential to his work, the traffic logs are saved, and a lawsuit or internal complaint could make them relevant in a heartbeat.

“The company can not only see it, but they probably store that,” said Thompson. “They probably store it for legal reasons for a long period of time.”

Back at home, Robin relaxes on the couch to watch a movie with the kids. Somewhere, whether he’s using a cable box or a TiVo or an Apple TV, some server takes note that he has selected another episode of a certain show, while others sit in his queue unwatched. His personal profile is updated and recommended shows changed. And his viewing habits, while tracked separately, are added to those of others for the streaming service’s reports and feedback.

For the philosophically inclined, the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy has an essay on Privacy. However, despite how interesting the debates may be, the fact is that observing and recording everything we do is about control. It’s about “them” gaining control of us.

As Americans, we continue to believe we are a free people; however, if privacy is an aspect of true freedom, then we must face the fact that we are no longer truly free. Perhaps a better title for this post would have been “freedom” is becoming an illusion.

Hundreds of terrorists escaping from prisons

How does this happen? And what does it mean? From the AP:

Interpol has issued a global security alert in connection with suspected al-Qaida involvement in several recent prison escapes including those in Iraq, Libya and Pakistan.

The Lyon, France-based international police agency says that the alert follows “the escape of hundreds of terrorists and other criminals” in the past month.

I can’t believe so many prison breaks, involving high-level prisoners, just happen. “They”, the global elite, are up to something. According to the AP report:

The alert also comes a day after the U.S. issued an extraordinary global travel warning to Americans about a possible al-Qaida attack.

The U.S. is closing 21 of its embassies and consulates in the Muslim world this weekend, while Britain, France and Germany have announced the closures of their embassies in Yemen’s capital, Sanaa.

US shutting down embassies _Aug 2013

The U.S. government usually tells us how rosy things are in the Muslim world. Why are they now trying to keep people from visiting and why are they moving their people out? Are there things happening that they don’t want us to see? Covert operations? False flag? Time will tell.

UPDATE: From Global Research, One Day After Russian Asylum for Snowden: Obama Administration Launches Terror Scare

Friday’s terror alert comes in the midst of a public relations campaign by the administration to portray the spying programs as legal and carefully monitored by Congress. This week, the Senate Judiciary Committee held a hearing to take testimony from top officials of the NSA and the Justice Department concerning the programs. Amid talk of the need for “transparency” and “accountability” from some of the senators on the committee, the hearing only underscored the absence of any serious or principled opposition in Congress and the complicity of both parties, the Congress and the courts in the buildup of the apparatus of a police state…

Meanwhile, virtually every day brings new revelations of pervasive spying programs. A CNET report released Friday stated that the FBI has been pressuring telecommunications providers to install “port reader software” that enables real-time interception of internet metadata, including IP addresses, e-mail addresses, identities of Facebook correspondents, and sites visited by government surveillance agencies. As CNET wrote: “The US government is quietly pressuring telecommunications providers to install eavesdropping technology deep inside companies’ internal networks to facilitate surveillance efforts.”

And from the Daily Sheeple, State Department Terror Alert sponsored by the very same terrorists Obama wants to give weapons to

In the shadow of this threat, I find it absurd then when we take into account this administrations drive to provide munitions to those factions in Syria posing as rebel fighters of whom it is common knowledge that thousands are known to be al-Qaeda operatives.

Could this latest “threat” have anything to do with the Benghazi debacle?

Terror Alerts aren’t the only thing creasing or raising peoples eyebrows today as yet more sordid details made their way into the public commonwealth connected to Obama’s most notorious phony scandal to date involving the September 11th, 2012, terror attack by Islamic (al-Qaeda linked) radicals on our U.S. Embassy in Benghazi which left our U.S. Ambassador & 3 other Americans murdered. Specifically the August 1st, 2013, CNN report claiming the CIA engaged in a massive, “unprecedented” intimidation campaign to keep incriminating specifics about Benghazi under wraps..

So we have Obama engaging in obstruction by dispersing Benghazi Survivors across the United States & changing their names in the midst of his administrations intimidation campaign & Darrell Issa’s ongoing investigation. We have more allegations surfacing, intimating that events that were taking place in Benghazi under the late Ambassador Steven’s stewardship at the time involved the shipping & transfer of  surface to air missiles out of Libya, through Turkey, & on into the hands of Syrian rebels. These would be the same stockpiles too by the way of thousands of surface to air missiles that had purportedly vanished without a trace immediately following the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi’s regime at the height of the Libyan Civil War.

There’s much more to the Daily Sheeple post, including several videos.

So much is happening. No doubt “they” are up to something.

Rex 84: Blueprint for FEMA

This blog is a record of my journey of discovery. Although I have long been familiar with many so-called conspiracy theories, it’s only since the Sandy Hook drill that I’ve become intensely interested in what’s actually going on. Research for a recent post on FEMA guillotines provided my first exposure to Rex 84. This is what I’ve discovered so far.

I guess what caught my attention was the length of time “they” have been developing these plans.

According to Wikipedia:

Rex 84, short for Readiness Exercise 1984, was a classified “scenario and drill” developed by the United States federal government to suspend the United States Constitution, declare martial law, place military commanders in charge of state and local governments, and detain large numbers of American citizens who are deemed to be “national security threats”, in the event that the President declares a “State of National Emergency”.

It seems the Miami Herald leaked news of the plan on July 5, 1987. Coincidentally, two days later, one of the plan’s co-authors, Oliver North, became available for public questioning about it.

Ollie North arrest

From the Wikipedia article:

Transcripts from the Iran-Contra Hearings in 1987 record the following dialogue between Congressman Jack Brooks, Oliver North’s attorney Brendan Sullivan and Senator Daniel Inouye, the Democratic Chair of the joint Senate-House Committee:

[Congressman Jack] Brooks: Colonel North, in your work at the N.S.C. [National Security Council] were you not assigned, at one time, to work on plans for the continuity of government in the event of a major disaster?
Brendan Sullivan [North’s counsel, agitatedly]: Mr. Chairman?
[Senator Daniel] Inouye: I believe that question touches upon a highly sensitive and classified area so may I request that you not touch upon that?
Brooks: I was particularly concerned, Mr. Chairman, because I read in Miami papers, and several others, that there had been a plan developed, by that same agency, a contingency plan in the event of emergency, that would suspend the American constitution. And I was deeply concerned about it and wondered if that was an area in which he had worked. I believe that it was and I wanted to get his confirmation.
Inouye: May I most respectfully request that that matter not be touched upon at this stage. If we wish to get into this, I’m certain arrangements can be made for an executive session.

OIlie’s reaction to Brooks’ question says it all. No poker face whatsoever. Poor lackey or arrogant bastard? It’s about 55 seconds in:

From the website constitution.org:

According to scholar Diana Reynolds:

The Rex-84 Alpha Explan (Readiness Exercise 1984, Exercise Plan; otherwise known as a continuity of government plan), indicates that FEMA in association with 34 other federal civil departments and agencies, along with other NATO nations, conducted a civil readiness exercise during April 5-13, 1984. It was conducted in coordination and simultaneously with a Joint Chiefs exercise, Night Train 84, a worldwide military command post exercise (including Continental U.S. Forces or CONUS) based on multi-emergency scenarios operating both abroad and at home. In the combined exercise, Rex-84 Bravo, FEMA and DOD led the other federal agencies and departments, including the Central Intelligence Agency, the Secret Service, the Treasury, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Veterans Administration through a gaming exercise to test military assistance in civil defense.

The exercise anticipated civil disturbances, major demonstrations and strikes that would affect continuity of government and/or resource mobilization. To fight subversive activities, there was authorization for the military to implement government ordered movements of civilian populations at state and regional levels, the arrest of certain unidentified segments of the population, and the imposition of martial law.

Sounds like the drills these agencies practice today. The article further states:

In 2008, for the first time an active military unit has been given a dedicated assignment stateside for civil unrest containment. It is assigned to Northcom, a joint command established in 2002 to provide command and control for federal homeland defense efforts and coordinate defense support of civil authorities.

At the bottom of its page on Rex 84, constitution.org has a number of links to informative articles on this subject. One of the links is for an excellent article from 2000 about “Garden Plot“, the larger operational plan, of which Rex 84 was a part.

I was also surprised to find that FEMA has been around so long. According to FEMA’s website:

FEMA can trace its beginnings to the Congressional Act of 1803. This act, generally considered the first piece of disaster legislation, provided assistance to a New Hampshire town following an extensive fire. In the century that followed, ad hoc legislation was passed more than 100 times in response to hurricanes, earthquakes, floods and other natural disasters.

However:

Executive Order 12127

President Carter’s 1979 executive order merged many of the separate disaster-related responsibilities into the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Among other agencies, FEMA absorbed: the Federal Insurance Administration, the National Fire Prevention and Control Administration, the National Weather Service Community Preparedness Program, the Federal Preparedness Agency of the General Services Administration and the Federal Disaster Assistance Administration activities from HUD. Civil defense responsibilities were also transferred to the new agency from the Defense Department’s Defense Civil Preparedness Agency.

John Macy was named as FEMA’s first director. Macy emphasized the similarities between natural hazards preparedness and the civil defense activities. FEMA began development of an Integrated Emergency Management System with an all-hazards approach that included “direction, control and warning systems which are common to the full range of emergencies from small isolated events to the ultimate emergency – war.”

For what it’s worth, John Macy was an army man who directed civilian personnel.

Continuing with FEMA’s history:

On March 1, 2003, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) became part of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

A New Mission: Homeland Security

Billions of dollars of new funding were directed to FEMA to help communities face the threat of terrorism. Just a few years past its 20th anniversary, FEMA was actively directing its “all-hazards” approach to disasters toward homeland security issues. In March 2003, FEMA joined 22 other federal agencies, programs and offices in becoming the Department of Homeland Security. The new department, headed by Secretary Tom Ridge, brought a coordinated approach to national security from emergencies and disasters – both natural and man-made.

On October 4, 2006, President George W. Bush signed into law the Post-Katrina Emergency Reform Act. The act significantly reorganized FEMA, provided it substantial new authority to remedy gaps that became apparent in the response to Hurricane Katrina in August 2005.

According to one of FEMA’s official brochures:

[FEMA] is the lead agent for the Nation’s programs in ensuring the continuity of government operations and essential functions and the endurance of our constitutional form of government in a catastrophic event.

According to an article on Rense.com:

In May 2007, Bush signed executive new orders NSDP51 and HSDP20 to replace REX84…These two orders established that the White House administration would take over all local governments under a national state of emergency, instead of Homeland Security.

Bush changes continuity plan

Despite its sensationalistic title, the following video provides some very important information:

I’ve found conflicting information regarding the justification for Rex 84. According to a website called Global Research:

The Rex 84 Program was originally established on the reasoning that if a “mass exodus” of illegal aliens crossed the Mexican/US border, they would be quickly rounded up and detained in detention centers by FEMA.

On the other hand, according to the Wikipedia article:

They patterned the plan on a 1970 report written by FEMA chief Louis Giuffrida, at the Army War College, which proposed the detention of up to 21 million “American Negroes”, if there were a black militant uprising in the United States.

If the reporting is correct, it seems they used the threat of potential civil unrest to sell the plan to the American people. To the vast majority of the voting public of that time, it probably seemed a good idea to have protection against unruly “people of color”.

However, as the video makes clear, the potential detainees are now right-wingers. What this reveals is what I’ve continually said, that the government will be on your side as long as it finds you useful. Therefore, none of us should stand for “their” targeting of anyone, whether we agree with them or not.

These plans have been in the works for a long time. Who knows when they will finally be allowed to come to fruition? I believe that God has kept that from happening. Believers must continue to pray and expose “their” demonic agenda.

Are FEMA camps being equipped with guillotines?

The reports that the government is ordering guillotines seem really farfetched. I mean, why guillotines? If they want to murder folks, gas and bullets seem more efficient.

However, the Bible says that in the last days people are going to be beheaded. It also says that God’s saints will return with Him to make war on the devil and his minions. Is there perhaps some demonic belief that beheading will neutralize the saints of God so they can’t return to fight with Him? I’m just speculating. However, “they” must have a reason for choosing this form of execution. If they have indeed chosen it.

So, for your consideration, a few You Tube videos on the subject:

From David Vose. At about six minutes in he points out what he believes is a guillotine in an Arizona FEMA camp:

This next video claims that Congress authorized the purchase of 30,000 guillotines. It also addresses the thousands of disposable coffins that are being stored throughout the nation. Debunkers state they are actually grave liners being stored by undertakers or cemeteries for legitimate burials.

The video also mentions that the Postal Service is using colored dots to identify who is for and against the government. Now, there are dots on mailboxes throughout my neighborhood. There’s even one on my mailbox. They’re there to signify that no mail is to be placed in that box. Perhaps I should begin to worry if the color of the dot changes? Anyway, the video (check out the fancy Chanel guillotine):

The next video is very informative. Although it begins with the despicable Shep Smith, he soon introduces Judge Napolitano and after that clip, we are shown official FEMA camp documents, and there is much more. No guillotines, but very important info:

I’ll leave it at that. Next post: Rex 84.

Amazon.com’s support of the president

I’m not sure why there’s been so little coverage of the president’s interview with Amazon.com. Perhaps those who don’t like him don’t want to feel obligated to boycott the company. On the other hand, those who do like him are perhaps embarrassed that he’s cozying up to one of those evil corporations, even one that’s supported him financially and technologically. Let’s find out.

According to the New York Post:

Employees of Amazon, which scored a coup by securing a rare one-on-one interview with the president for its journalism outlet Tuesday, donated more than $116,000 to Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign, according to data compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics.

That’s more than four times as much as the roughly $25,000 that the Internet giant’s workers gave to Republican challenger Mitt Romney.

Obama and Amazon also have a business relationship.

Not only does Amazon peddle Obama’s books, but its Amazon Web Services helped build the high-tech data storage and retrieval system for the Obama campaign’s get-out-the-vote operation.

A bit further in the article and here it is. It’s the embarrassment factor. Not only does the president seem to be endorsing Amazon at the expense of local book retailers, a favorite of leftists, but his interview (which Amazon calls “short” but the transcription is 15 pages) is receiving very poor reviews:

Obama’s appearance on Amazon served as a ringing endorsement at a time when traditional publishers are balking at the company’s virtual online monopoly…

By late afternoon yesterday, more than half of the reviews posted on its Web site had panned the interview by Kindle Singles editor David Blum.

It’s also the boycott factor. Perhaps Amazon requested that news of the interview be quashed:

“I am going to boycott Amazon for a couple of weeks for this one,” wrote John Rrister, who gave the roughly 15-page interview a one-star rating. “I would rather do business with companies who remain nonpolitical.”

Politicians for hire. How far the nation has fallen. Political prostitutes in office. No wonder we’re in such dire straights.

Megaregions – America 2050: The Rockefeller – Ford Plan

The plan for megaregions appears to be rather old news; however, it seems a good time to mention them again, lest we forget. According to Wikipedia:

Megaregions of the United States are clustered networks of American cities whose population ranges or is projected to range from about 7 to 63 million by the year 2025. America 2050, an organization sponsored by the Rockefeller and Ford Foundations, lists 11 megaregions in the United States and Canada. Megapolitan areas were explored in a July 2005 report by Robert E. Lang and Dawn Dhavale of the Metropolitan Institute at Virginia Tech. A later 2007 article by Lang and Nelson uses 20 megapolitan areas grouped into 10 megaregions. The concept is based on the original Megalopolis model.

According to the website america2050.org:

As metropolitan regions continued to expand throughout the second half of the 20th century their boundaries began to blur, creating a new scale of geography now known as the megaregion. Interlocking economic systems, shared natural resources and ecosystems, and common transportation systems link these population centers together. As continued population growth and low density settlement patterns place increasing pressure on these systems, there is greater impetus to coordinate policy at this expanded scale.

“Low density settlement patterns place increasing pressure” on economic systems, natural resources, and ecosystems. In other words, rural and suburban areas are ruining the planet. This is related to yesterday’s post on the encroachment of Agenda 21, in which I pointed out the government’s plan to force everyone to live in urban areas.

The America 2050 website is the project of the RPA, the Regional Plan Association, which is the group promoting Agenda 21 in New York City. Its interests are

  • Economic Development
  • Parks and Environment
  • Transportation and Infrastructure
  • Sustainable Communities

Do these sound familiar? The president often speaks of these things. How about all those high-speed rail systems they’re always planning to build even though most cities don’t want them? These interests represent the U.N.’s Agenda 21. As I said yesterday, check out the webpages for communities near you and it’s likely you’ll find their buzzwords. Agenda 21 is everywhere and it always sounds lovely – new bike paths, more trees. What could be wrong with that?

America 2050 is partnered with Transportation for America, whose website states, “America needs transportation solutions.” Really? It seems to me that most of us are perfectly happy driving around in our own vehicles. From the website:

We need our nation’s leaders to invest in public transportation, high-speed passenger rail, streets safe for biking and walking, and green innovation. We need leaders with a plan to strengthen our economy, create jobs, reduce our dependence on oil, and make it easier for Americans to find the money to meet their growing transportation needs.

In the melodrama that is presented to us as American politics, this is the agenda of the left-wing. Transportation for America is a lobby group and it is currently targeting Rand Paul. (So is Chris Christie. Is that a coincidence?) Why don’t they target the president? For all his talk about our crumbling infrastructure, not much has been done about it. What are they really doing with all the money earmarked for bridge and road repairs?

Anyway, there is a community of bloggers promoting Agenda 21 called Streetsblog:

Since 2006, Streetsblog has covered the movement to transform our cities by reducing dependence on private automobiles and improving conditions for pedestrians, cyclists, and transit riders. Our reporters have broken important stories about transit funding, pedestrian safety, and bicycle policy from day one. And our writing makes arcane topics like parking prices and induced traffic accessible to a broad audience.

Can we call this what it is: Propaganda? They, and others, make Agenda 21 sound like Utopia: bicyclists on tree-lined streets carrying baskets of fresh flowers, tossing petals in the paths of those making their way to mass transit stations. (Ever seen Nazi propaganda?) Is this the dream of a new generation of flower children or old 1960s hippies?

Agenda 21 isn’t just happening in the U.S. From the America 2050 website:

Our competitors in Asia and Europe are creating Global Integration Zones by linking specialized economic functions across vast geographic areas and national boundaries with high-speed rail and separated goods movement systems. The increased mobility of workers, business travelers, information, and goods between the networked cities of these megaregions enables greater collaboration, flexibility, and innovation. Efficient mobility is also a competitive advantage in the global playing field, where value is created by time savings.

In other words, we need to do the same to be competitive. It reveals the global nature of “their” Agenda.

The next paragraph is interesting. It reminds me of driving the Interstate through Houston, Texas last year. If I remember correctly, it took over an hour, even though there was little traffic and we never drove below the speed limit. There were also more intertwining overpasses than I’ve seen elsewhere. They were everywhere.

The recognition of the megaregion as an emerging geographical unit also presents an opportunity to reshape large federal systems of infrastructure and funding, such as future surface transportation bills, the reorganization of Amtrak, housing and urban development authorizations, and farm policy. Just as the Interstate Highway System enabled the growth of metropolitan regions during the second half of the 20th century, emerging megaregions will require new transportation modes that work for places 200-500 miles across. The key new links in this mobility system are likely to be High-Speed Rail (HSR) lines, which are uniquely suited to trips of this length.

Has Houston already become a megalopolis? It’s important to watch states that have seemingly conservative leadership. Perhaps I should restate that as watch states that have been run by members of the Bush family.

Side journey (or is it?):

Florida was one of the first states to implement the REAL ID Act. From Wikipedia:

For the 2012 Florida Legislative Session, an anti-REAL ID bill, HB 109 and Senate companion S 220 will be heard. Named the Florida Driver’s License Citizen Protection Act, it would require discontinuation of several of the federally-mandated provisions of REAL ID and destruction of citizen’s documents that had been scanned into the government database. That bill died in Transportation and Highway Safety Subcommittee, on March 9, 2012.

And how about the NAFTA Superhighway with its Trans Texas Corridor? This highway has been labeled a conspiracy theory; however, websites of major cities discuss their plans for building it. It’s actually Interstate-69. You can read about its progress in Michigan:

Capture I-69 Michigan international trade corridor

Kentucky:

Capture I-69 KY Capture I-69 KY 03

to name just two. So much for it being a conspiracy theory.

In my opinion, the Bush brothers implemented plans behind the scenes in Florida and Texas that were designed to come to fruition after they were out of office.

Back to America’s megaregions. Here is a map of the plan:The Emerging Megaregions

Here’s a map of the proposed high-speed rail system:

High Speed Rail Network

Are we expected to bicycle to one of their train stations? Oh, no. Now I remember. We’ll all be living right near one. I don’t know about you, but I hate big cities and crowds and have only used public transportation a handful of times in my entire life.

The America 2050 website has other maps, including their plans for freight networks, Google’s map of the megaregions (imagine Google mapping the global elite’s plans), and more. It’s worth a look to see what “they” have planned for us.

It’s interesting that “they” are not quite so secretive as many presume, as most of their plans are available on the Internet. Unfortunately, most people just aren’t interested. Is it “they” that label their plans “conspiracy theories”? Or is that done by people who can’t handle the truth of what’s being planned for us? Unfortunately, those with their heads in the sand may be the people who most need some forewarning.

What will life be like in a megalopolis? See Calhoun’s experiment on the effects of overpopulation on rodents:

The conclusions drawn from this experiment were that when all available space is taken and all social roles filled, competition and the stresses experienced by the individuals will result in a total breakdown in complex social behaviors, ultimately resulting in the demise of the population.

In the eyes of the global elite, we are the rodents.

Finally, here is a video of one couple’s thoughts on Agenda 21 in Austin, Texas:
