Topic for the meeting are (so far):

1-“Food Security and what we can do locally””
Due to rising food costs, producing and sourcing locally will become a necessity. So what can we do to make it so it’s affordable to the locals and profitable to the farmer

2- Implement a quick emergency network between all of the members attending the meeting, for looking after each other during times of crisis.

3-The heavy use of herbicides and pesticides, what we can do to bring that down and at the end of the day eliminate them.

Solutions to discuss
GMO’s, Jobs, Climate Manipulation, and other topics added by attendees
direct farm marketing
seed bank
alternative electricity
barter network
Very important note : This is NOT a bitch fest we can discuss negative issues but the purpose of these meetings is to discuss solutions to the issues

All of the attendees of the meeting can come up with answer/ideas to the above mentioned topics. If anyone has more problems to be discussed that were not mentioned, they can be added to the list. At the meeting’s commencement, we can prioritize and schedule the meeting to allot enough time for each problem.

Look forward to seeing you there.

Former NSA Confirms: ‘No Surge Protection, Smart Meters God Send for Hackers’

Story from:

Another excellent post by K.T. Weaver, Sky Vision Solutions.

If you haven’t been to that site, it is one of the best for bringing you the truth, technicals and all else regarding this issue.

My suggestion is to get on their mailing list.

On top of all the evidence we have seen about meters causing fires, not having surge protection and being prone to hacking, we know have former NSA employees telling us this is the case also.

Here is a link to her testimony before the Michigan House Committee.

Here is what Ayers said about no surge protection on smart meters.

Surge Protection Taken Off Smart Meters:

Pictures below of what we are talking about when we have warned, for years now and recently about this critical safety feature being removed:

But hey, what would a 38 year NSA veteran and a Fire Chief who had a smart meter fire on his own home know right? And what do insurance adjustors, meter installers, meter technicians, electrical engineers, meter designers or the EPRIknow either?

More from Smartgridawareness this time on,


Screen Shot 2017-03-12 at 2.55.42 PM.jpgYep, not just your town, city, state or province but as many have warned, in this day and age of everyone hacking everyone… the entire grid of entire nations are weaker now thanks to the smart grid. Utilities, give yourself a round of applause.

Entire Grid At Risk Of Fire?

This may be hard for you to believe, but literally (and actually) anyone with a keyboard and some hacking skills could set fire to any building they wanted to from a remote location.

How? Turning off and on the remote disconnect in meters which has already been the source of many fires, meter recalls and ‘meter meltdowns’ (which is an industry term for smart meter fires) Explained here at 7:23 mark of video.

When you pile on the bad installations, installing under load, street kids installing for speed commissions, plastic pieces of smart meters having a lower melting point than metal and glass meters, lithium ion batteries, transient voltage issues causing inaccuracies… we have a massive problem on our hands.

You can watch the video of Ayers here (3min to 12 min)

Analogue Meters Immune To Hacking:

Ayers, when asked if analogue meters can be hacked says: ‘NO’ Ironically, analogue meters also had proper surge arrestors on them.  Now, because of this ALL our buildings with a smart meter are at risk of fire. All of them. They have known this for years and still put the meters on and are still pushing them on people to this day:

‘Accidental Inaccuracies’

Let’s touch on the inaccuracy part shall we?  The below graphic sums up a report from the Netherlands on the gross inaccuracy of meters.

How many times have you seen, or been the victim of skyrocketing power bills?

And when you see these all over Facebook, in every article online from papers happening in every where across the globe, now are you seeing what they are up to?

Just in case you did not know, there have been no real world tests for accuracy yet, besides the one above and that one was also in a lab.

Normally it is a fraction of a second test in a controlled lab, with no voltage transient or harmonic issues being accounted for.

+/- 582%

 These meters are 582% inaccurate for you. 

However, at the same time they are 582% accurate for broke utilities and broke governments looking for a way to steal your cash from your hard work to cover up for decades of grid mismanagement and compensate for sagging demand.

If you have been to this blog before, you have seen these charts, but it is worth showing again just so those that believe the utility/government lie of ‘keeping up with demand‘ understand that it is just that, a lie.



Notice how right around 07/08 the trend solidified itself, which was ‘coincidentally’ the exact time smart meters got really popular with utilities. 

ALL of BC:

I will save you the time of trying to look around and see if it is the same everywhere and let you know, yes, it is.

Data Is Money:

Finally, the last scoop of this issue is that they needed to put in meters and need the ‘accidental inaccuracies’ to make up for the lost revenue. They also needed the data sales, which will also be a massive boost to utilities to the tune of? Trillions:

Screen Shot 2017-03-12 at 3.34.30 PM


Just as a tiny hint, the power sales market is about… $2.2 TRILLION.

Now are you starting to see why utilities can’t don’t care about the fires smart meters cause?

Now do you see why they don’t care that your entire home grid, and your entire countries’ grid is at risk?

They need the data and the ‘accidental inaccuracies’ of the smart meter!

I won’t even get into the fact that governments are the primary share and bondholders of ALL utilities via their pension plans as this has been coveredenough times for regular readers. The government (who legislates this stuff into existence) therefor, needs them to get the data and be ‘accidentally inaccurate’. This is just a mathematical fact.

I am going to ask a big favour of you.

Big, but simple.

Please, get this post into the inbox of your friends and family. Like, share, tweet, print and mail, talk about it at dinner… whatever it takes.

It’s time.

We have all had enough.

We have let a lot of things slide, but this is too much. We in the movement against these meters have been warning about this for a long time.

We did it to protect ourselves, but of course you and yours also.

We need to care about this one.

We can’t let it slide anymore.

It’s time to wake up.

They lied.

They lied again and this time it can cost us our financial future, our homes or our lives.

They lied for money and greed. This is unacceptable. Please ensure others know this too.

Many have been searching for reasons, here is why. Corroborated by the most credentialed people out there.

This is no longer ‘tin foil hat’ stuff.

This is serious.

This is now.

This has to stop.

We need to stop this together.







These New GMOs Are Flooding the “Natural” Market. Here’s How to Avoid Them

A new type of genetically modified product is now being slipped into your food, cosmetics, and more! Many products containing the new genetically modified ingredients are being marketed as ‘made without GMOs’  and ‘natural’ although they are anything but! Luckily, a cutting-edge list has been compiled which shows consumers exactly which products contain these new GMO ingredients. Watch the video below to learn more about the dangers of these new products that are flooding the food, cosmetic, and various other industries!

The master list of products to avoid can be accessed at this address. To search the database, for example, set the current status to “ON THE MARKET” and the category to “Food” then click “search ingredients.” This will bring up an up-to-date master list of all the foods which currently contain these new GMO 2.0s.

If you haven’t noticed, a massive tipping point within the genetically engineered food market is currently underway. Many massive corporate food companies have begun to offer organic options and remove harmful ingredients in response to consumer demand. We voted with our dollars and the industry responded. Now, we must diligently boycott the latest tactic to land GMOs on your dinner table!

Save this database. Send it to friends and family. Boycott GMOs in our food supply to create real change- paradigm industry reform as we are already witnessing. The fight is not over. Knowledge is power. Your dollar is your vote for the type of food system and options you would like to see in the world. Save this list. Spread it far and wide and keep voting with your choices as a consumer.

The Robbers & Rebels of Agriculture ALR (Agricultural Land Reserve)

My criticism of the ALR (Agricultural Land Reserve) and how they are potentially going to put a fantastic operation out of business because of policy changes within the ALC.

We, as young farmers need to stop asking the government for help and subsidies because the long term effects create more regulation, taxation, and raise the barriers to entry for new start ups. The ALR was a program set up with the best of intentions to protect farm land and future generations of farmers, but after 40 years, it has achieved the opposite by making it difficult for new farmers to buy over valued ag land and retiring farmers to sell that land. In the video, I outline many other reasons this program has failed to achieve it’s intentions.

How Secret Societies Rule The Day – The Truth About The Global Shadow Government (With Gary Arnold)

Published on 11 Mar 2016

In this mini-documentary, Gary Arnold and Josh Sigurdson break down the effects of secret societies on governments worldwide. From the out of control global central banking cartel to Skull and Bones. From the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) to the Trilateral Commission. From the Rockefellers to the Rothschilds. From the Bilderberg Group to the CIA, United Nations, NATO and Bohemian Grove, secret shadow groups are controlling global policies. We look at how all the major world leaders are connected and who’s really pulling the strings.
Gary Arnold is a legend when it comes to people who’ve worked for decades to uproot the secret societies that have taken full collectivist, communist control over governments and with that, we the people.

Gary Arnold has run for congress against Leon Panetta in California, has gotten in screaming matches with President Ronald Reagan and has been close to both Anthony J Hilder and G. Edward Griffin. He’s been active since the 1960s. He’s helped expose communists in conservative clothes and the secret nefarious initiatives under the guises of peace and liberty purposely plundering and depopulating the United States and the rest of the world. His insight is absolutely necessary as the information regarding this incredibly important subject gets more and more confused, yet all the more accepted due to the internet.

Former CIA Director Blames Millennials For Wikileaks Vault 7 Leak

Published on 12 Mar 2017

Recently, Michael Hayden, the former director of the CIA claimed in an interview with the BBC that millennials are for the most part at fault for the Wikileaks Vault 7 leak of classified documentation which has exposed the CIA for assassinations, false flags, conspiring against the American people, propaganda campaigns and mass surveillance through smart phones, computers and Samsung Smart TVs.


While I’m usually the first to rag on millennials, being born into that generation myself, one thing millennials definitely have right regardless of how they put that information to work is that they are skeptical of being spied on. I may be better to be adamantly against it rather than simply skeptical, but skepticism is definitely a start.

Now, Michael Hayden isn’t completely incorrect as a 2013 Pew Poll found,
“…that millennials were more skeptical of government surveillance than any other age group — with 45 percent of millennials saying it was more important for the federal government to ‘not intrude on personal privacy, even if that limits its ability to investigate possible terror threats’ than ‘to investigate possible terrorist threats, even if that intrudes on personal privacy.’”
Ben Franklin once said,
“Those willing to give up a little liberty for a little temporary security will get and deserve neither.”

So Hayden is basically claiming that his generation is subservient and bows down to rulers and millennials are not doing the same. Well he has information I do not being the former director of the CIA but if this is true, then perhaps I should stop being so hard on my generation. Maybe there is something there other than safe spaces and gender fluidity after all.
Isn’t it interesting that the CIA’s reaction to these leaks borders on “Who leaked what?” rather than “We screwed up big time!”

These leaks have just begun. According to Wikileaks, once 1% of the classified CIA documents have been released. We can only imagine the power of this potential holy grail of leaks. If people are loud enough and express their disgust in this system, this could bring down the CIA and massively help in bringing down the deep state! This is history in the making!

Of course this all surrounds issues we’ve been talking about for so many years and in return called a “crazy conspiracy theorist” for. All the same, we’ve been vindicated and now we must work on what to do next.

So to the millennials, for the first time ever, I will say it…Well done!

Stay tuned for more from WAM!
