Chicago Suburb Arrests Mothers
for Refusing Energy Meters

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Rebel Pundit

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/27/2013 4:16:59 PM

In Naperville, IL, two mothers were arrested last week for refusing to allow utility workers to install controversial smart meters on their homes. The city’s new Naperville Smart Grid Initiative requires new controversial smart meters to be installed in every home. Residents opposed to the smart meters have been fighting the initiative for over two years. Jennifer Stahl, an advocate against the smart meters initiative, told The Blaze she “was protecting” her property when she refused to allow the smart meter installer install the device. She felt “like a momma bear protecting her babies,” she recalled.

That´s a bit harsh don´t you think? It´s getting very scary in this country. The monitoring and controlling of all of your behaviors marches on.

I´m also in a Chicago suburb where these things are now "voluntary," but it´s just a matter of time. They are for gathering info on your habits, just as the Black Boxes (now required in all 2014 cars) are to monitor your driving skills and miles (for when they start taxing us by miles we drive, not gallons purchased).

We don´t live in a free country anymore. We are quickly becoming a totalitarian police state run by tyrants. This is NOT the United States of America. Our Founders are rolling over in their graves.

#4, we will not be able to travel anywhere without THE Government knowing where we are.

This reminds me of the USSR and other totalitarian regimes, where all travel had to be approved. One couldn´t go from one town or village to the other without showing "one´s papers."

Hey! Where´s the ACLU? *crickets* ...i suspect they´ll be on the monitoring posts. Maybe they´re there already. They are as Left and despotic as the regime in power now.

Interesting, isn´t it, how those who promote themselves as so liberated from bourgeoise conventions are the most restrictive, domineering, despotic, tyrannical of all.

THEY are the ones who want to be in our homes AND bedrooms and bathrooms; and the doctor´s exam rooms, down and up the endoscopic tubes, and everywhere else. Don´t forget, they started with flush toilets and lightbulbs.

Actually, they started this all with controlling SPEECH. The political correctness machine began grinding and gnawing at Liberty in earnest with the Clintons and cohorts.

The fascistic statists will NOT tolerate home-schooling for much longer, either. They want total control over all children.

They can not and will not allow independent thought.

In a matter of a these few short years, we find ourselves spiralling down pell-mell into the totalitarian nightmarish vortex.

Ask those producing the electricity! Electricity provided to the public cost differently depending to time of day. Power providers use their lowest cost sources for their basic load. As the load increases providers must put on line higher cost/KWH sources resulting in higher net costs. When the electricity costs more for the providers they must charge more hence the meters measuring quantity and time.

I am so proud of these two women. I only wish more citizens had joined them. At least protested their arrest. It´s going to take citizens who are willing to fight the good fight for things to change. Silence and indifference invites tyranny and oppresion. Elections do have consequences.

Like it or not, the meter belongs to the electric co. The electricity is yours only after it leaves the meter. As it says in the article, they will install the Smart Meter, charge you extra for the manpower to read a standard meter…or disconnect you from the grid! Your choice.

Don´t like the meters" Simple, go off grid. There are plenty of instructions on YouTube.

If these two women would have studied electrical engineering, rather than basket weaving, they would know what a Faraday enclosure is.

They are NOT voluntary in Philadelphia.

Conservatives and libertarians have tried unsuccessfully to get the State House to stop their imposition, but few legislators understand resistance to their installation.

Local Philadelphia opposition is based on at least SIX separate and distinct factors. [not all necessarily present in each case of opposition].

1. Damage to historical homes. [past Cable companies drilled redundant and unnecessary large holes in 100-300 year old marble facades of homes]

2. Reluctance to allow utility workers into homes and basements to install the new meters.[suspicion and safety concerns re the utility the workers, as well as verification or their identification]

3. Health concerns based on scattered studies [not just anecdotal] linking the meters to a variety of health concerns, and fear that the hazards have not adequately been studied.

4. Privacy concerns re the Government knowing how individuals and households use utilities.

5. Concern that Government will be able to Control of a households use of utilities, and can turn on and off a household´s usage.

6. libertarian concerns re extension of Government into ever expanded areas of citizens lives.

This is wrong on so many levels and who do we have to turn to ? Certainly not the elected officials in Washington.

It´s not just your electric. Yesterday I received a letter from my insurance company asking personal questions about my daily habits and finances.

Don´t bend over and see what happens.

These are now in parts of MD. One was already put on my home.

You can pay extra for manual reading, get the smart meter, or have your power turned off. It is only a matter of time before your only options are getting the smart meter or having the power turned off...

We have no say in this matter..

But what some people are not getting is the fact that these women were ARRESTED for not allowing the meters to be put on. The power company could have turned off their power but they didn´t even have THAT choice. This is more than just wrong. This is illegal...it is false imprisonment.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
