Don’t Want a Smart Meter? Take Back Your Power – Screening Tues. 6/10/14

OK-SAFE, Inc. – Concerned about the PSO-AEP smart meter rollout in Oklahoma?  So are we.

There will be a showing of the award winning film Take Back Your Power on Tuesday, June 10, 2014, at the Hardesty Regional Library in Tulsa.  The screening begins at 6:30 pm and is free to the public.

Released nationally in 2013, the Take Back Your Power documentary film has won 3 awards, including the AwareGuide Transformational Film of the Year in 2013, and the Leo Award for Best Feature Length Documentary Program in 2014.  It was an official selection at the Berkshire International Film Festival, also this year.

AEP-PSO announced late last year that they would be replacing their 520,000 analog meters with “advanced devices”, aka smart meters.  Work in Tulsa is scheduled to begin in 2015.

Sometimes call “spy meters” due to their inherent surveillance capabilities,  there is a growing body of evidence that exposure to these type of meters causes serious health issues. This, in addition to the concerns about the corresponding rate hikes wherever smart meters have been installed (here and here), is adding fuel to the fire of opposition to the whole smart meter/smart grid rollout.

The utility companies have consistently turned a deaf hear to these concerns. Utility giant AEP-PSO, (sensitive to the growing negative connotation of “smart meters” and “smart grid”?) calls their smart meters “advanced metering devices”. Instead Smart Grid, PSO calls their project the GridSMART project.  (Slick, right?)

Invite your friends and neighbors to this showing.  An action plan will be presented at the end of the presentation.

UPDATED – Smart Grid: The Rest of the Story – Vicky Davis

UPDATE: OK-SAFE, Inc. – Researcher Vicky Davis has completed Part 10 of her series, Smart Grid: The Rest of the Story

Part 10, Global Power Shift, describes the functional realignment of the electric utilities, including the self-serving roles of the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC), the Federal Energy Regulation Commission (FERC), and the utilities.

NERC FERC OEPI OERtorus

 

Excerpt:

“The Environmental Protection Agency, which I’m sure has a similar Torus structure, is closing down coal‐fired power plants based on their regulatory authority over air quality. They are creating the shortage of electricity, which will provide the racketeering power of extortion pricing to the utility sector. The Renewable Energy Certificate subsidy scam is a cover of sorts until the entire country is under the control of the smart grid and NERC.

The Smart Meter is the gateway to the home for the Smart Grid and the Regional Transmission Operators (RTOs). The objective, which is well documented, is “demand management”. Through the Smart Meter and Smart Grid capabilities, plus the appliance standards passed by the Congress in the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007, the RTOs will have the capability for the Regional Transmission Operators to “shave the peak” – meaning to shut down your access to electricity entirely – or to selectively shut down your appliances including heating and cooling equipment.”

Original post:

OK-SAFE, Inc. – Our friend Vicky Davis, a former computer Systems Analyst-turned researcher at Channeling Reality, has written a series of articles on the history and implementation of the global Smart Grid.

Entitled Smart Grid: The Rest of the Story, this 9-part series covers everything from the basics of how a smart meter’s 2-way communication system works, to an examination of the types of data collection systems involved and the how/why of “smart” appliances; from the efficiency movement to energy rate decoupling; and the origins of the concept of scarce energy.

Smart Meter

The series includes a brief look at the “who’s who” orchestrating the global smart grid roll out.

The series is a must-read for those with concerns about smart meters and global energy control.

What is Technocracy?

OK-SAFE, Inc. -What is Technocracy?

Technocracy is the concept of government by technicians, i.e. scientists and engineers, who would oversee and administrate  government and the economy.

The framework for a North American Technate (an institutionalized and operational technocracy) was formulated in the early twentieth century by an influential group called Technocracy Incorporated.  This group eventually published a Technocracy Study Course in the mid-1930’s, noted below.

Excerpt from the Technocracy Study Course: “Technocracy is dealing with social phenomena in the widest sense of the word; this includes not only actions of human beings, but also everything which directly or indirectly affects their actions.  Consequently, the studies of Technocracy embrace practicably the whole field of science and industry.  Biology, climate, natural resources, and industrial equipment all enter into the social picture;” (page ix)

A Technate does not recognize God, individual rights,  representative government,  or national boundaries.  There is no constitution – the blueprint for a Technate is based on functional systems.

A Technate, as described, holds sway over all the resources of its extended territory, from minerals to man; it considers all types and classes of production and methods of distribution, and determines how much energy would and should be consumed in the process.

[NOTE: In Technocracy’s worldview, resources include humans; human beings are considered animals – organisms that derive their food from other organisms.  Subject to the evolution process, and because humans are intimately involved in both production and consumption of energy, technocrats believe that it is appropriate to modify or “enhance” the human organism by scientific means (including genetic), to improve their performance. Read: Designing the Future: NBIC Technologies and Human Performance Enhancement, by James Canton, Ph.D. The activities and schemes detailed in this document could explain why Personhood efforts fail.  Pair this with ‘transhumanism’ and one begins to get the picture.]

Technocrats believe it is their job to balance production and consumption; this involves moving from the current “price-based” system (or whatever it is we currently operate with), to a system based on energy consumption – for instance, a “carbon” based currency system.

Originally, the technocrats envisioned issuing an Energy Certificate to each person at birth.  When that person used up all his pre-determined energy credits, well,  that would be it for him – no more energy allotment.

Goodbye, Bob.

Never Waste a Good Crisis

Technocracy was being promoted during the time a great financial crisis was facing the nation – the great Depression. Technocracy was offered up as a solution to the country’s ills.  The establishment of a Technate (government by technical experts) was seen as way out of what seemed an insurmountable problem. According to Patrick Wood, FDR was offered the position of ‘dictator’ over the proposed Technate, but refused.

We can expect that same pattern of behavior will repeat itself – a great financial crisis, followed by calls for an immediate solution.  Scripture says there is nothing new under the sun and efforts by man to control and dominate the affairs of others continues. The groundwork for a type of Technate has already been laid – all that is needed is the right ‘crisis’ to launch it.

The Course Book

The Technocracy Study Course book, produced by Technocracy Incorporated, was published in New York in 1934, 1935 and 1936, and in Canada in 1937 and 1938.  The digital copy was made available in 2008. (See below for links).

When you read through this Study Course, make special note of Lesson 20, The Nature of Human Animal, and Lesson 21, Technocracy: The Design.

After reading these chapters, a lot of what is happening today is made clearer – including liberty-killing sustainable development plans, schemes to control production and consumption; land and water use restrictions; health care and education reform; the purpose of Smart Meters and the Smart Grid; data collection systems and surveillance technologies; government “modernization” efforts that will lead to the outsourcing of government functions;  open borders and the disregard of constitutional government; and the rising up of a technocratic elite as ‘enterprise administrators’.

Description

A complete digital scan of the Technocracy Study Course. This copy by TNAT The North American Technate. Google Technocracy technate for more associated information.

This is the 1945 edition. The last two chapters of this book contain the Technate design for North America.. the complete appendix.. after the design chapters.. are presented also.

The Technocracy Study Course introduces basic concepts of science, then relates those concepts to the idea of a scientific social design, secular and humanitarian, creative and life enhancing when the Price System abstract value system is not used, but energy accounting is.

The design based on the metrics of energy.. is the viable alternative to the present system referred to as a Price System. The Technate design precludes special interest groups. It is not a political system.

Investigate Technate design for an actual alternative system based on sustainable abundance within the context of our resource base.

Our children are being taught that this change is right, inevitable, and a natural progression of world affairs.

This change has been orchestrated and the end-game is clear – the end of America as we’ve known it.  Are we willing to turn back to the one true God yet?

Smart Grid: San Diego Gas and Electric signs MOU with Russian Federation

In evidence of a pending global Smart Grid, and the power of these new so-called “sub-national” agreements, heralded by the U.S. Department of State and the White House,  San Diego’s Mayor and the San Diego Gas and Electric Company have signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the government of Belgorod in the Russian Federation, for joint cooperation in the development of the Smart Grid.

The OG&E Transmission Line Project

The Smart Grid, an energy-management system of connected distribution systems, transmission lines, smart meters, and real-time monitoring systems,  is explained by the Dept. of Energy here (the spin), and by Patrick Wood, editor of The August Review here (the non-spin):  researcher Vicky Davis of Channeling Reality has information here.

Smart Meter diagram

The opening paragraphs of the MOU read:

“This Memorandum of Understanding (“Memorandum”) is entered into this 24 day of May 2011 by and between Interregional Distribution Grid Company of Centre, JSC (IDGC of Centre), a corporation and existing under the law of the Russian Federation, the Government of Belgorod Region and San Diego Gas & Electric Company, a corporation organized and existing under the laws of the State of California (“SDG&E”) and the Office of the Mayor of the City of San Diego, California (collectively, the “Parties” and each individually, a “Party”).

PREAMBLE:

Whereas, the Parties are seeking to develop mutually beneficial cooperation as part of the smart grid partnership program under the U.S.-Russia Bilateral Presidential Commission’s Energy Working Group;

Whereas, the Parties each seek to contribute to the implementation of the provisions of the Memorandum of Understanding dated October 14, 2010 by and between the Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation and the Department of Energy of the United States on cooperation in the energy sector….”

It goes on to read:

NOW, THEREFORE, the Parties hereto agree as follows:

ARTICLE 1     AIM OF MEMORANDUM OF COOPERATION

The Parties agree that the Partnership outlined in this Memorandum aims to leverage the expertise and knowledge of Party in order to:

1.1 Strengthen economic development of our regions and companies, enterd into this Memorandum

1.2 Maximize innovation in energy efficiency and development of Smart Grid

1.3 Qualitatively improve reliability of power supply

1.4 Engage customers in their electric grids management and influence behavior change *

(* This means customers are going to be caused to reduce their energy consumption one way or another – either through rate charge schemes or rationing of usage; the price of energy will rise.)

ARTICLE 2    AREAS OF COOPERATION

The Parties agree to, and acknowledge each other’s mutual interest in:

2.1 Cooperation in the following priority areas:

  • 2.1.1 AMI Smart meters
  • 2.1.2 Distribution Automation
  • 2.1.3 Best practices in business processes
  • 2.1.4 Communications for electric utility operations
  • 2.1.5 Distribution control center, training center, and crew management
  • 2.1.6 Creation of Smart Grid innovation cluster
  • 2.1.7 Security and video surveillance (feeling good now?)
  • 2.1.8 Streetlight management
  • 2.1.9 Supportive government policies to promote Smart Grid (translation: using the coercive power of government to assure compliance)

2.2 Possible future cooperation or collaboration in:

  • 2.2.1 Renewable Energy
  • 2.2.2 Call Centers and Customer Care Centers (San Diego is going to cooperate with the government of Belgorod, with Russia for heavens sake, for Smart Grid call centers and customer care?  Will all the reps be named “Peggy”?)

And so on through 5 pages of items of cooperation and collaboration.

Article 5 contains miscellaneous provisions, including this stunner, “The Parties intend that their cooperation within the framework of the Memorandum shall be on the basis of mutual trust.”

Anyone remember SALT I and II?

The MOU is signed by the Governor of the Belgorod Region (Savchenko, E.S.), the General Director of IDGC of Centre (Gudzhoyan, D.O.), the Mayor of San Diego, California (Jerry Sanders), and the President and COO of San Diego Gas & Electric Company (Michael R. Niggli)

Wonder if the folks of San Diego know what their Mayor has agreed to?

Mayor Sanders email is JerrySanders@sandiego.gov and his phone number is 619-236-6330.

Might want to give him a call.
