February 2006 was not exactly a tranquil month.Â Emails and forums were blazing with communication and revelation on the National Animal Identification System known as NAIS.Â Farmers were just beginning to collect information of the NAIS program.Â NAIS activism was in its infancy with only a few farming journals such as Countryside exposing the sinister NAIS plan. Â Walter Jeffries was just putting up his NoNAIS.org blog when Celeste Bishop called him with the news that the largest alternative media venue, Coast to Coast with George Noory, was going to cover the hot topic of NAIS.Â Walter and Celeste teamed up for 48 hours to get the blog ready for the first NoNAIS activists to go live on the international air-waves.Â Much appreciation is extended to Dr. Katherine Albrecht who helped get the media ball rolling on NAIS.
Everyone in farming community was furious about the program that would require:
Premises Identification:Â All property that has potential to make $1000 qualifies whether you have animals or not.Â Your property would be issued a 7 digit number that would cloud the your private property title and would run with your land instead of through ownership.
Electronic Animal Identification:Â Livestock would need to be electronically identified in case of a “dreadful foreign animal disease”.Â What the fear-mongering Department of Agriculture did not tell people was that truckloads of diseased and undocumented animals were flooding across the borders straight for your dinner table.Â The USDA and state Departments of Agriculture also did not reveal the incremental implementation of a master UN plan called the Terrestrial Animal Health Code that would regulate all life on the planet earth.Â It has come to light that the electronic identification may or may not be the dreaded grain size RFID that is inserted into flesh via a very large needle.Â Other RFID technology is available these days including Somark, which uses an embedded RFID ink and then tattoos its victims with an invisible ink.
The third pillar of NAIS is the 24/7 surveillance (tracking or tracing-whatever you want to call it) where commingling and reporting of ‘animal’ movement would need to be reported to the government in an IRS type electronic format.
The NoNAIS journey for most of us has been one of pounding down and deciphering documents, learning to appreciate each others diverse talents, learning a *new-to-you* redefined language, leaving the farm to work with policy makers, law suits, media coverage, and communication skills.Â Through the highs and the lows of NoNAIS activism we have made new friends and lost friends.Â We have had abounding hard work and sacrificed many hours, dollars, and family time.
Do farmers think that the NoNAIS battle is worth it?Â Absolutely!Â Freedom to preserve farm-freedom so that we may all eat pure food is precious.Â Unpolluted food from local small farmers is a valuable commodity to you the consumer.Â The days of famine are rapidly approaching when your local farmer will not be able to farm and you will be stuck with polluted food!Â If we, farmer and consumer, sit back and let someone else fight the “food-fight” we will get exactly what we put in, something that looks like food, but is not.
Will Coast to Coast cover an update on the current famine threat created by over regulation of traditional and small agriculture?Â So far this You Tube has had 500+ hits.Â We the People can drive that number much higher and show that folks are concerned about uncontaminated local foods.
Tyrannical food regulation is creeping into your front porch.Â What are you going to do about it?

Share the link with your family and friends and ask them to view it.Â Together we can drive the NoNAIS issue back up into international media venues where we have the best opportunity to educate and impact folks on this critical issue.Â Let’s not relegate NAIS media coverage to the pages of history.
