All Over America Government Agents of Tyranny Are Forcing Preppers Back On To The Grid

Michael Snyder, Contributor
Activist Post

In recent years there have been huge numbers of Americans that have sought to go "off the grid" and live a more independent lifestyle. It has been estimated that there are now approximately 3 million "preppers" in the United States, and many of them just want to be left alone so that they can take care of themselves and their families on their own land. But that is not the way America works anymore.

In many areas of the country, government control freaks have essentially declared war on preppers and are attempting to force them back on to the grid. In some states, "nuisance abatement teams" are conducting armed raids on off the grid properties. Property owners are being cited for "code violations" and are being told that they are "bothering the neighbors". In some cases, trees and gardens are being forcibly removed. In other cases, entire structures are being relocated or torn down. And in the most extreme cases, property owners are actually being forced off of their properties completely by these control freaks. 

You see, the truth is that in America you don't really own your property. You are essentially renting it, and you can only do with it what the government allows you to do. And the government does not like people disconnecting from the grid and living an independent lifestyle. So these battles over property rights are probably going to get even more intense in the years ahead.

These days, many Americans are choosing to grow "survival gardens" as a way to help feed their families and become more independent of the system.


But in some areas of the country these survival gardens are being forcibly ripped out by government control freaks. Just check out what happened to one unemployed woman in Tulsa, Oklahoma....
A Tulsa woman is suing the city's code enforcement officers after she said they cut down her garden with no cause.
Denise Morrison said she has more than 100 plant varieties in her front and back yards and all of them are edible and have a purpose.
She knows which ones will treat arthritis, which will make your food spicy, which ones keep mosquitoes away and treat bug bites, but she said none of that matter to city inspectors.
Last August, Morrison's front and back yards were filled with flowers in bloom, lemon, stevia, garlic chives, grapes, strawberries, apple mint, spearmint, peppermint, an apple tree, walnut tree, pecan trees and much more.
The government agents left her with nothing. They ripped her garden to shreds. She was relying on that garden for her food and her medicine. Because she is unemployed, she doesn't have any money to go to the store and buy all those things.

Now she is absolutely destitute....
'I came back three days later, sat in my driveway, cried and left,' Morrison said.
Oh, but at least the government agents can report that "everything is now up to code".

What is happening to this country?

In the state of California, armed "nuisance abatement teams" are intimidating property owners into getting connected back into the grid, and in some instances they are forcing homeowners off their land entirely.

When I first watched the videos posted below I got quite angry.

This first video is about government control freaks driving people off their land in the California desert....



This second video is also about what is going on with "off the grid" properties in California....



After watching those videos, it is easy to understand why millions of people have been leaving the state.

Those who are running things do not want us to be independent. Rather, they want us completely and totally dependent on the "nanny state" from the cradle to the grave. They want us as "connected" to the system as possible so that they can watch us, monitor us and control us.

Sadly, most Americans do not even realize that the United States is slowly but surely being transformed into a giant prison control grid.

This is happening in thousands of different ways.

For example, eventually all of us will not be able to go anywhere without our faces being recognized and recorded.

Yes, just like the movie Minority Report. In fact, facial recognition advertising billboards are already being used in Japan.

Facial recognition is even being used on the Internet. Facebook recently purchased a facial recognition startup company called Face.com. This startup company has technology that can positively identify you in any photo and can even guess your age.

The following is from an official statement on the Face.com website....
Facebook has acquired Face.com! Our mission is and has always been to find new and exciting ways to make face recognition a fun, engaging part of people’s lives, and incorporate remarkable technology into everyday consumer products. If you’re anything like us, Facebook is a part of your life every single day. We keep up with our friends and family, share interesting (or mundane) experiences from our daily lives, and perhaps most importantly for us, we share a LOT of photos.
The truth is that nothing any of us do on the Internet will ever be private again. That ship has already sailed.

We still have a lot of freedom to say what we want on the Internet, but that window is rapidly closing as well.

Internet censorship in the United States is growing at a very fast pace, and it is only a matter of time before entire websites start getting shut down for political reasons.

The following is from a recent CNN article about the explosive growth of Internet censorship....
In the last half of 2011, U.S. agencies asked Google to remove 6,192 individual pieces of content from its search results, blog posts or archives of online videos, according to the report. That's up 718% compared with the 757 such items that U.S. agencies asked Google to remove in the six months prior.
If they don't like what we do on the Internet, they will just come in and wipe it out.

If they don't like what we do on our land, they will just come in and chop it down or forcibly remove it.

We do not live in the "land of the free" anymore.

"Amerika" is becoming a prison state.

And every single year the prison grid gets tighter and more oppressive in thousands of different ways.

If you are doing something "out of the box" on your own property right now, you might want to keep it very quiet.

If the wrong person finds out, an armed "nuisance abatement team" might just show up at your door one morning and hit you with several dozen "code violations".

I don't know what country we are living in, but it sure isn't America.

Well, you ever thought of backing each other?

Don't just stand there watching when these thing s happen, get together and put a stop to it!

Don't just write about and get angry....go into action....throw a spanner in the wheels. Every which way!

It's called Civil Disobedience.

Anonymous, many of us have been doing everything possible to stop it--and to no avail.

The government isn't just blundering along, this is all going according to plans.

It will stop only when tyranny is stopped with bullets. Sorry, that really is the only way to stop it.

And in this totally controlled environment, we're supposed to believe that we can have a free and open election, where people can choose the type of government they want.

We have the freedom to have Romney or Obama (status quo)as president but not Ron Paul.

I guess I have to admit that the saying, "There's an American born every minute" is true.

Well, anonymous number 2, whatareya waitin' for?

Talk is cheap! Please do not spout violence unless you are willing to use it, and, since you are too afraid to state your name, I have doubts you will, and inciting BS is what you are about. You need to understand the consequences of what you are saying, because someone just might take your advice, shoot some oligarch, and then we have martial law. What part of the CIA do you work for?

Violence won't work when they hold all the cards but there's something simple that anyone can do to interrupt their ability to repeat the propaganda lies over and over until we actually believe it. Obviously having us believe what they say is important to them or they wouldn't be wasting time doing it!

Simply laugh at their words. Let them know we don't believe ANYTHING they say. Chinese university students laughed at Tim Geitner when he said the US has a strong dollar policy and that stopped him cold! No more chance to talk about that.

Let out a good belly laugh whenever our government or corporate "leaders" try to convince us of anything. It will stop them cold without violence. It's also something they can't stop without totally embarrassing themselves.

Picture this government warning sign; "Political Speech Today. NO LAUGHING!!"

Sounds like we are living in Chimerica (China America) The Chinese are the oldest country in the world. They have slavery down to a modern science. Don't by Chinese, ask for a warrant before letting any officials on your property, check with all neighbors within a 20 mile radius, and 'code enforcement' is NOT law, it is code like Napoleonic. Get a satelite internet connection if you can. Sound an alarm to Patriots so they band together and help you! Between the banks and international interests we have a fight on our hands!

@DL: Talk does nothing. As for martial law, it will happen according to their timeline and at the incident of their choosing. Most of all, we will be just "acceptable" collateral damage. Words, Petitions and Protests won't stop the the deadly force they WILL use against the "herd". Being a defenseless martyr for those meek cowards who think they can "blog" their way to Freedom & Security is insanity.

I saw this coming 20 years ago and we left the USA for good. They were slashing basic freedoms and calling it "tools for law enforcement." I could see America going down the crapper one "tool for law enforcement" at a time. Now it's worse than I ever feared it would get.

We emigrated to NW Canada 20 years ago and we are as prepped as prepped gets. Central and Northern Canada is mostly uninhabited and land is dirt cheap.

The Pentagon will start WW3 soon and anyone in a city, or a port, ... ...I wouldn't want to be ya'.

Peace

I have no problem with them forcing me back on the grid or ripping out my garden...so long as they're ok with me following them home and forcing MY will on THEM. And believe me...my will won't entail gardens and electricity.

OK. I have no tv, no cell phone, don't twit, no facebook, no credit card, no debt, nothing at all to tie me down in any way, shape or form. I don't do fast food, am not quite vegetarian (still do some chicken and less seafood), am on no pharma drugs and never will be, don't do the stupid vanity games, never 'owned' a new car, don't do any kind of media like movies, or pay to watch anything, drive only when I have no choice, and DON'T PLAY THE GAME!!!!!!! (Don't smoke or drink, or support the CIA with controlled substance use, either.) Now where would we all be if everyone did this? Also, I AM voting for Ron Paul. Nof if everyone did this too?

To those that think Canada is a safe haven...no offense; but, it has always ruled with a stiffer hand. Civil disobedience can be met with tanks, my friends, has been, will be. All these laws the "New Right" is shoving down our throat were in put into effect in Canada before here. If you want to know what's next...watch Canadian politics. Canadians don't fight back (save Quebecers).

If you were going to go off the grid, your 15 years too late. Staying in the confines of the US is not going off the grid.

You should have been in a 3rd world country by now, something in central or south america

around here if you're classified as a camp you can be off grid, in a camper, etc... just don't let them catch you living there full time... it starts with fines you can't pay untill they take your land and assets on it for failure to pay fines, or follow code regs and pay thousands to connect to grid, dig septic and well etc..... way out of reach for mostly unemployed in rural america....

i don't" play their game" either, and that is my life's protest. perhaps if a vast majority did this we'd be safer, but too many americans are brainwashed that they NEED these things.... yes cumpolsiary electricity from nuclear and coal plants truly are what makes us the most envied nation in the world....or was that our freedom and individuality???
people think i'm insane living off grid with my husband and three kids through the summer. not unique or strong or creative, or resourceful, just plain CRAZY....
and thats' friends and family expressing this....
i just try to educate as many people as i can throughout my process of self reliance. and to live and let live....seems if people band together they're a cult, if they act alone they're a rogue agent.... but you can't win if you don't play the game....voting is playing the game. so is petitioning local code enforcement to show them that sustainble living is safe and can be aethetically appealing. a beautiful mansion of a log cabin just went up near me a year ago, completely off grid and array of solar panels about 40 feet long! if they can do that in their huge house, why can't i in my small house... many cities have regs against solar panels, solar hot water etc.
i dunno... what the solution is, but violence seems the wrong direction....if i have to resort to violence, my dream is dead....
so, "kill em with kindness "as my father always advised..... and do what thou wilt.

When it becomes clear there are no more 'soft' attempts at control and tyranny is fully-fledged, take out as many street-level communications as you can to limit the efficiency of their control grid. Where they're buried, dig them up; destroy what you can. Any electricity moving through the grid isn't there to power your kettle, it's there to defeat you through technology. Such disruption will become a necessary strategy in modern civil war.

THERE IS SOMETHING REALLY FISHY WITH THIS ELECTRICITY NETWORK AGENDA. This is done all over the planet and even remote places in Africa are "lucky" to be electrfied even if they got no money to pay the bills. So what exactly they will do or better said use the network to? Send some kind of pulses, signals or what? Does anybody have an idea what that could be, i am sure there is an idea, system, agenda behind forcing people to be connected to a grid. Cheers

"nuisance abatement team", aren't they a lot like 'ticks'? Unwanted. You can get a spray that repels them or one that kills. We all have the right to live and support our lives here in America and part of living is picking 'ticks' off.

Actually there are other ways to stop the madness, other than countering violence with violence. The spiritual approach. No not religion. Spirituality. Big difference, although prayer works no matter what belief system one subscribes to. Get your group together and create a manifestation: visually, emotionally and verbally of the EXACT outcome (in all its magnificent glory), you wish to achieve in this situation. We are all of us energy fields. Fields of consciousness in other words. We are and experience our reality exactly as we believe it to be, 100% of the time. So to change your manifestation, you must change your beliefs first, no matter what happens in front of your eyes. Things happen first within the energy fields of ourselves and the consciousness grid itself. Those levels of reality are finer, more subtle (and therefore less dense, invisible) than the heavier fields of energy represented in the material world of flesh and objects. Hence it is easier to manifest in Spirit first (via meditation, visualisation, emotional programming etc.) than to change the outer world. It works from the inside outwards, not from outside inwards. So first start with your inner world. Manifest diligently for a period of at least 3 weeks (it takes 21 days for the mind the accept new programming as a reality) the EXACT outcome you wish to see (in full colour (visually), emotion (with feelings), intention (clear verbal statement of purpose), AS IF IT HAD ALREADY HAPPENED! That's the key. In Spirit there is no time as we know it. So if you manifest, manifest always in the NOW. If your whole group gets together and does this as a group with THE EXACT SAME MANIFESTATION being held BY ALL OF YOU AT THE SAME TIME, even if it's only for 15 minutes, you will move the biblical mountains with this in no time at all. There is no need for anyone to degrade themselves and put darkness into your souls by committing acts of violence in the defence of your homes and families. This is a much easier way, one of benefit to the greater good, one that can be used by ANYONE ANYTIME and best of all, it works 100% of the time! There is only one caveat: do unto others as you wish to have done unto yourself. In other words, the law of karma operates always and in every situation. Therefore, manifest always to the greatest highest good of all parties concerned and you will always be on the right track. This is the way forward into a future of respect for all life. It has to start with the individual. No one is going to do it for you. One by one, enlightenment is achieved by all.

Please...could someone tell me HOW would I contact some of these people who are being "evicted" from the land that was once America?

Maybe THEY would be interested in leaving the US and putting their talents to work in Central America?....

They are clearly skilled in survival, and if they can live in the desert and make it (I am currently living in El Paso Texas so I know about that), they would think they were in heaven in temperate fertile coffee growing (gentle moutains) in Nicaragua.

Even if they only have social security funds to put into the pot, that goes a long way in Nicaragua. Sweat equity is what is needed, not a big bundle of investment money.

I own 43 acres of beautiful land in an ideal location only 28 miles from the capital, and I want to combine resources with enterprising survivalist-minded people who would want to go there, help me build living quarters, (shipping containers welded together perhaps), grow organic food, vegetables, chickens, even pigs, etc... and possibly build a clinic for alternative medicine to serve both the poor and offer services to foreign clientele to foot the bills.(Any alternative approach is perfectly acceptable there - there is NO FDA or prohibitions)....

My remedy is "you can't beat 'em so LEAVE".. like the old song goes, "You have to know when to hold 'em and when to fold 'em". And we need to depart soon... the situation in this country is on the fast track to slamming the doors SHUT to keep the sheep in the shearing pens.

I hope it is acceptable for me to leave my email address...

How long before they escalate to actual violence to force these people off their land? How long before our own government begins to murder us on one trumped up charge or another? I knew America was in trouble when the elder Bush took office and began to undo all the good that Reagan had accomplished, and each succeeding "president" has pushed us further & faster down the road to communism. It appears that Pelosi's home state has decided to get rid of what the elite deem as "nuisances" (read "undesirables" by hook or by crook. Where are the civil rights groups? The American liberties groups? Guess they are only for blacks, browns and progressives.

What the control freaks want is for us all to move to the city, so we can be tightly controlled. As some of the comments above state, massive civil disobedience and lawsuits are the only way to make them stop. If they make you hook up to the grid, just leave the breaker off. Get a friend with a drilling license to dig a sham well. Do whatever it takes to get the thugs off your back. But do not back down, and do not leave.

This battle began in the Garden and will end on the last day. It is not a battle of flesh and blood but rather a battle against powers and principalities in the heavenly places. In other words the forces of darkness and the forces of light. The deceive battle has already been won by Jesus and the rest of history is a mopping up operation. Unfortunately many of Jesus followers have been duped into believing that the Devil and HIs forces are ruling in this age not realizing that by Jesus life, death and resurrection He has conquered the powers of darkness and He now has all power and authority both in this age and all ages to come. The next time Jesus returns is on the Last day when He will judge both the righteous and the wicked. The wicked will be cast into the lake of fire and the righteous will be with Jesus forever.
Many of our government agents are on the dark side and so they do deeds of darkness. Even some Christians may do these deeds of darkness, but it is because they don't understand that not everyone who says to Jesus "Lord, Lord" will enter God's kingdom but only those who do righteousness will enter in for Jesus said "If you love me you will keep my commandments". It is time for Christians to stand up and say no! NO to unjust laws, no to tyranny, no those things which are inherently evil according to scripture.

If it were a street gang doing this, would you accept it and do the best you can until the next gang came along? Would you pay protection money? Suppose the police are crooked, they're just another street gang - would they protect you, or just take their cut and leave? My bet is that you would be robbed and plundered until you had nothing. Part of "prepping" must include armed self defense against all who mean you harm, otherwise those who beat their swords into ploughshares will till the soil for those who keep their swords intact.
