Farms and Food Being Federalized
Farms and food are being federalized by regulatory agencies. This is yet another assault on our freedoms. Maybe you were unaware, or maybe you were not even born yet, but some 60+ years ago a war was declared against ‘threats to [global] peace’, breaches of peace and acts of aggression which includes American agriculture and food. Maybe you have not considered your dinner plate or your domesticated farm animals an ‘Act of Aggression’ but that is precisely how the UN views them. We need to look at the particular UN Articles you need to understand America is a participating member and signatory of the UN. The goal of the UN is to unite the world to a Utopian time of ‘peace’ under UN control and by their definitions. A task force was set up in the early 1960′s to evaluate the best way to make transition to world peace. Peace equates equals control. Because there is human suffering and poverty the UN believes it is it’s task to bring about a ‘peaceful order’.
Here are the facts, nothing but the facts.
- Only 2% of Americans grow food.
- There are more prisoners in America than farmers.
- Many farms are now foreign owned thanks to the overly intrusive regulations that each state and the federal government has passed and our lackadaisical protection of our borders.
- America used to have hobby farmers who grew food and companion animals for their own family but those farms are rapidly becoming extinct with high prices and restrictions.
- The global import/export market is growing at a quantum 6% a year. It will not take long before complete dependence upon foreign products to take place.
- The bioterrorism act of 20002 requires that all producers of food, retailers, and restaurants maintain records for traceability. Continue reading
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?
10 Minute Citizen: Go to Coast to Coast Covers NoNAIS & RFID
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.
From the trenches…..
In October 2009 the AVMA updated their electronic animal identification (RFID) FAQ.Â The document has a heavy pro-RFID bias although does minimally cover RFID problems.Â The main reason cited for getting an animal electronically identified is for reunification purposes only.Â Disease surveillance and prevention was only mentioned in the context that RFID ‘chips’ can provide animal temperature data.
10 Minute Citizen:Â Research the consequences of RFID implantation in animals or humans.
Hobby farmer or agri-business, speed of light global commerce will be impacting your farm.Â Department of Homeland Security, DHS, along with one of their Center’s of Excellence, FAZD, have teamed up to examine the impact that cross-country commerce and travel has on local farms.Â Your farm is in their sights…
The National Animal Identification System, NAIS, on your mind?Â The FAS Transportation Data Management System retrieves premise identification listings, datamines with extraction of local, county, state, regional, and national farm and asett information.Â FASTRANS is NASS (yes, our ‘friend’ in the farm census) compliant.Â ConOps will use NASS data for traceback information.Â In the future, coming soon to a farm near you, ConOps will send a description of a selected premises for quarantine orders.Â Henceforth and forevermore, the powers-that-be have decreed by royal command that the public (our) highways and by-ways will be referred to as ‘vectors’.
This program works with FASCAT.Â These programs wrap around public law and HSPD 9-10 regarding agriculture.
Yes!Â I want to see the document!Â Click here: hoffman-fazd_brief-29_feb_2008
10 Minute Citizen: Check this power point out and call or write the President informing him that privacy is alive and well in America.
For the past several years many of us have been watching the company Somark.Â The idea of an implantable, glass microchip the size of a grain of rice into the flesh of man and beast alike was repulsive to most people.Â Somark has deveoped an invisible RFID readable tattoo.Â Nobody knows you have it.Â It is your little secret.Â The concept is reminisicent of WWII when undesirables were tattooed on their forearm.Â DOD documents in 2006 revealed that anything ‘chipped’ for purposes of tracking would need to be placed on an exterior position because the density of the object being tracked can throw off the reading.
Somark has concluded its field animal studies and is now ready for other purposes.Â What is Somark saying about its product(s)?
Hello, weâ€™re SOMARK Innovations – the creators of the versatile SOMARK ID system. Our aim is to provide advancements in identification and tracking – specifically lab-animal identification.

Traditional Farming and Food
“Steel” Your Mind for NoNAIS Combat
These concepts were accessed in June 2009 from the US Army and adapted for NoNAIS
This presentation has been compiled by Celeste Bishop
These tools can be applied in the same format to similar issues.
Dedicated to those in the NoNAIS trenches

From the trenches,
Hate the National Animal Identification System?
Here is your opportunity to protest a major driver of the NAIS program!
Colorado State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital Hosts 30th Annual Open House
Cardboard, fabric, or plastic protest signs,
Mega-phone if you enjoy sharing your ideas with the â€œother sideâ€ of the fence,
A smiling face ready to educate those who are clueless about the dangerous program.
Be ready to ASK and ANSWER questions about NAIS
Print up some flyers
Wear NoNAIS T shirts or other attire
Wear a costume (scratch the USDA vulture costumes because I checked a few years ago and to rent it was $3000, yes, $3000-with inflation, deflation, or Depression the cost probably has sky-rocketed.)
Print and hand out NoNAIS logo stickers for the kids (I have had great response with those at the fairs)
Do a Farm Sit-In in a pet carrier or cage representing what quasi-law/reg is doing to American farmers
Set up a card table and put a nice meal with black streamers over it, saying No FOOD, FAMINE, STARVATION in the name of SCIENCE and Disease prevention
Bring examples of what your farm products (not animals because they might get sucked into CSU)
Please make sure that you are courteous and respectful, firm but polite. Dress appropriately. We want our NoNAIS Movement to be remembered in a positive light. Stay in public areas and be ready to stand your ground, if challenged.
You may want to bring a video or tape recorder for â€œdocumentationâ€ purposes.
Letâ€™s brain-storm, other protest opportunities are coming up so please SHARE ideas J
