Natural Law as a Restraint Against Tyranny

Video with Judge Andrew P. Napolitano recorded at the Mises Circle in Costa Mesa, California, 8 November 2014. This seminar examined the institutions of a stateless society and explored topics such as private defense, private police, privately produced money, the role of markets, and how stateless legal systems would work. This particular video in the series is about 22 minutes long and has over 47k viewers at time of posting.

Video shows Judge Napolitano at his best on natural rights. He stresses that you cannot take away natural rights with legislation even if you try because they do not come from government at all. He gives an interesting brief history lesson and then apples the concept to where we are today. He ends with a huge challenge to this generation and the next in a powerful prediction. Please take time to watch this. I promise you will be glad you did. Even if you already know these things, it will help you articulate the ideas to others and we all must do that!

Opt-out Available for PSO’s Smart Meters – at a cost‏

[Received via Email from Gary Kilpatrick with permission to share at the end. Thanks Gary for excellent info and important follow-up to my previous post/sc]

smart-meterPSO is now removing our reliable analog electric meters and replacing them with digital “smart” meters that include a wireless transmitter/receiver. But PSO has not told customers that an unofficial opt-out list exists. I say unofficial because the opt-out program is not legal until the Oklahoma Corporation Commission (OCC) gives its approval, which they could do any day.

Lack of space forbids a full discussion of why a smart meter might not be such a good idea, but in summary smart meters are undesirable because they are a health hazard due to increased radiation exposure; they significantly increase the risk of cyber-security breaches of the electric grid; they provide further tools for an invasive government to perform warrantless monitoring of your home; they provide valuable data about your personal habits which power companies desire to be able to market; and due to their fragile, high-tech construction smart meters are prone to failure, often resulting in fires in consumer’s homes.

Although I am pleased that PSO is offering an opt-out, PSO has asked for exorbitant opt-out fees: a one-time fee of $183 if you opt-out before 12/31/2016 and $261 after 12/31/2016; and a monthly charge of $28.

In a hearing at the OCC Wednesday of this week the Oklahoma Attorney General, representing PSO’s customers, stated that the fees proposed by PSO were not fair, just and reasonable. The Attorney General provided several means by which the estimated costs of the opt-out program could be reduced; offered evidence of opt-out fees from a number of states, all of which were significantly lower than those proposed by PSO (the average monthly fee in the other states was $11); and argued that it was inappropriate for PSO to charge monthly opt-out fees at this time because the cost of reading existing meters is already imbedded in the electric rates customers are currently paying. In addition the Attorney General noted that in a recent filing OG&E has requested approval of an opt-out program and their one-time fee is 38% lower than PSO’s and OG&E’s monthly fee is 50% lower than PSO’s.

An additional problem with PSO’s opt-out program is that it does not include any consideration for those people who are extremely sensitive to micorwave radiation nor for low income households. Both the medically sensitive and low income households will suffer the most when a smart meter is installed on their homes, and it is unconscionable that the opt-out fees have been set so high.

If you, like me, do not desire to have a smart meter, then I suggest the following:

1) Call PSO customer service at 1-888-216-3523 and ask to be put on the opt-out list for smart meters. You will receive a call from the Bartlesville customer service representative. She will tell you that no official list exists yet, and will try to convince you to change your mind. Be polite – she is just doing her job. The decision to charge unreasonable opt-out fees – to even install smart meters in the first place – was made way up the PSO food chain. After making this call tape a note to your existing analog meter stating that you do not want a smart meter and that you have asked to be put on the opt-out list. Although PSO initially agreed to honor this unofficial opt-out list, they have not been uniform in their response when they (actually their contractors) come to your house to slap the new meter on (that is literally how it happens);

2) Call the three OCC Commissioners (Dana Murphy @405-521-2267; Todd Hiett @ 405-521-2264; and Bob Anthony @ 405-521-2261) and tell them you support, in fact demand, an opt-out program, but the fees proposed by PSO are not fair, just and reasonable. In addition tell them you want to keep your analog meter, not some partially disabled smart meter. Under the opt-out program PSO plans on giving you a digital meter with the communication chip disabled. There are very good safety reasons why you should want to keep your analog meter. Call soon, they could vote any day;

3) Call the Attorney General’s office and thank him for representing “we the people” in the PSO opt-out case and encourage him to continue to aggressively represent the people of Oklahoma against big business and big government; and finally

4) Attend an information meeting about the hazards of microwave radiation exposure (cell phones, smart meters, portable phones, baby monitors, etc.) to be held on Thursday, February 4th at 6:30 P.M. at the Bartlesville Public Library.

P.S. Feel free to forward this email liberally. The thing PSO fears most is a tremendous outcry against their outrageously high fees for customers simply wanting to keep their old analog meters rather than exposing their family’s to unnecessary radiation.

They Know Where You Live and What You’ve Been Doing

I want your money jewelry car boat and house (a fictional? scenario)

Federal Agent (Knock Knock)

Citizen – Hello

Federal Agent – Hello I am Joe, and I am with the Bureau Of Past Crimes. May I come in?

Citizen – Sure … I guess … What’s wrong?

Federal Agent – The State Department’s PR division asked us to look into your past. They said you have been giving the US government a hard time in your blogs and sullying its reputation.

Citizen – I thought I had a Constitutional right of free speech? And don’t you need a warrant?

Federal Agent – You certainly do, but know the government has a right to look into your past and charge you with the crimes you have committed. As far as the warrant is concerned, Fred write up a warrant.

Agent Fred – Just printed it up.

Citizen – Do I need a lawyer?

Federal Agent – If you are allowed one, the government will provide it. Fred where is my laptop?

Agent Fred – Right here sir.

Federal Agent – It says right here that you have downloaded over 500 songs from the Internet, what do you have to say for yourself?

Citizen – I never downloaded any songs.

Federal Agent – Did you listen to any songs you didn’t pay for?

Citizen – YouTube, but that- —

Federal Agent – They were downloaded into your temporary file space. Did you know that you could be fined up to $150,000 for each song?

Citizen – (About to faint) How did you know?

Federal Agent – It’s all in the NSA database, they are very thorough.

Citizen – I thought Congress outlawed the collection of personal data?

Federal Agent – That was overturned by the FISA Court. Now let’s get to the matter at hand. I understand you have a problem staying under the speed limit?

Citizen – What makes you say that?

Federal Agent – Do you take your cell phone with you when you travel in the car?

Citizen – Of course.

Federal Agent – Well because it has GPS tracking we record your routes and speeds. Our records show you have accumulated $25,380 in speeding fines just in the last year. If we go back further we can probably find some more revenues.

Citizen – What makes you think I was driving and even had the cell with me?

Federal Agent – Your voice was recorded at the same time. A persons voice is very distinctive you know. It looks like you have cheated on your taxes and owe another $2100.
Citizen – I try very hard to be accurate on my taxes.

Federal Agent – Well you know the three garage sales you had last year, you never reported the income from them. We learned that from your email. I also see that you have a big stash of gold and silver. Fred 6 months ago he talked about a secret compartment under the kitchen sink to the right. Look there.

Agent Fred – Here it is sir. Looks to be about 2 pounds of gold and maybe 5 pounds of silver.

Citizen – That’s mine, you have no right.


Federal Agent – Since you have committed fraud with your taxes, property confiscation is certainly within our right. It is called property forfeiture. We do that all the time. Fred contact the department’s real estate agent to get the sale of this house ready. I also understand that the Bureau Of Future Crimes will be visiting you soon.


A friend of mine said it well in an email recently:
We are in the valley of decision…
In the midst of living in the land of Sodom, I know the Lord has foreordained this moment in history. He has created a plumb line between the righteous and the wicked. And I know for certain, that God will not always strive with the wicked. He will let them flourish for a time, and then cut them down in a blink of an eye, just as He did in Noah, Moses, and Lot’s time.
Christians, we were born for such a time as this.
 “Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
May the Lord find us faithful as we await His return.
Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life” (Jesus) Revelation. 2:10

May we be salt and light as long as we have breathe to do so:

Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.

Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Matthew 5: 13-15 KJV
