I was laughed at years ago when I shared on my radio show what an army communications specialist shared with me regarding the fact that the government can monitor and spy on your conversations and activities. This was in the early 1990’s that he told me they could do this. Now it’s come out in official documents that the government can in fact do this. This is a great Alex Jones episode. Smart meters are dangerous, and the proof of this is prevalent.
Earlier this month, Petraeus mused about the emergence of an “Internet of Things” — that is, wired devices — at a summit for In-Q-Tel, the CIA’s venture capital firm. “‘Transformational’ is an overused word, but I do believe it properly applies to these technologies,” Petraeus enthused, “particularly to their effect on clandestine tradecraft.”
All those new online devices are a treasure trove of data if you’re a “person of interest” to the spy community. Once upon a time, spies had to place a bug in your chandelier to hear your conversation. With the rise of the “smart home,” you’d be sending tagged, geolocated data that a spy agency can intercept in real time when you use the lighting app on your phone to adjust your living room’s ambiance.
“Items of interest will be located, identified, monitored, and remotely controlled through technologies such as radio-frequency identification, sensor networks, tiny embedded servers, and energy harvesters — all connected to the next-generation internet using abundant, low-cost, and high-power computing,” Petraeus said, “the latter now going to cloud computing, in many areas greater and greater supercomputing, and, ultimately, heading to quantum computing.”
Petraeus allowed that these household spy devices “change our notions of secrecy” and prompt a rethink of “our notions of identity and secrecy.” All of which is true — if convenient for a CIA director.
The CIA has a lot of legal restrictions against spying on American citizens. But collecting ambient geolocation data from devices is a grayer area, especially after the 2008 carve-outs to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. Hardware manufacturers, it turns out, store a trove of geolocation data; and some legislators have grown alarmed at how easy it is for the government to track you through your phone or PlayStation.

How Dangerous Are Smart Meters
You can fight smart meters politically or just block the radiation coming from your meter. Visit Smart Meter Guard to see how.
While I encourage taking steps to stop the radiation from entering your home, I can’t help but think what about my neighbors? They are sending out that radiation and how well is my home protected when these devices send out powerful radiation that goes throughout the community. Is blocking my one meter really helping me a lot or making me think it is? Even living on 10 acres that is not that far from the people living in my area.
