In the U.S. census (Lockheed Martin and IBM) 500,000 workers are going building-to-building to collect GPS locator information to add to the census data base.

If you google “census u.s. lockheed martin gps” you’ll find a number of reports. I only took time to look at a couple.

Will they try to do it in Canada?  see  2010-01-17  Canada:  the census starts with “the dwelling”, “maps and locations”, information from the StatsCan witness at my trial.

The IBM/Lockheed Martin Census: GPSing Your Home  http://www.opednews.com/articles/The-Reason-Why-the-IBM-Loc-by-Greg-Nick-090512-899.html

From April 1st, 500,000 census workers, part of a $700 million taxpayer-funded contract, will travel all known streets and roads to identify every living quarter where people live or could potentially live. Each structure also will receive Global Positioning System (GPS) coordinates to make sure it is recorded in the right location.

Below are excerpts from a video of the US Census Bureau ad,  (Link no longer valid)  A New Portrait of America:

“On April 1st, 2010, our nation will be counted, every person whoever they are, wherever they live, and what we learn will transform what we know about ourselves. The 2010 Census, it’s a new portrait of America.   The 2010 Census is an exciting milestone for America. It promises to deliver accurate information about our diverse and growing population. And it’s important for the future of each community. Census Data will be used to allocate $300 billion in Federal funds every year.   It is the foundation of our Constitution. Communities use the data to plan for their future, like disaster and emergency services, health care services, schools, transportation, libraries, senior centers and more.

“The 2010 Census builds on the success of previous Censuses and is the best plan and most well researched Census ever.   The 2010 Census is important. This census is the commitment to the American way of life. To Be Counted as a resident of the United States I think is one of the proudest things that can happen to you in this country. It’s important to stand up for yourself, be counted. Let people know you’re out there. It’s a new portrait of America.”

Cue to the American flag….A video shot of diverse and multicultural people ranging from Hispanics, Asians to African and echoing the words, “It’s easy, it’s important, it’s safe!” Flashes on the screen pacify the end user: “It’s safe!”   The words, the mantra: “It’s safe!” burn into your subconscious.   Let’s remember that.

September 20, 2007 marked the day the U.S. Census Bureau awarded IBM  Global Business Services a contract worth $89.5 million over nine years to provide data tabulation and dissemination services in support of the 2010 Census Decennial Response Integration System (DRIS) program.   Fantastic news to one of the biggest IT companies in the world, otherwise known as Big Blue. It’s also known as the Nazi Nexus Hollerith Machine company to the Jewish families and other non-compliant races who lost their loved ones in WWII to the Third Reich. We will focus on the IBM Nazi nexus later in the article; let’s focus on what is currently happening with the US Census.

As we speak, US Census Bureau agents are pounding the pavements in the USA. Armed with a device, the HTC Census running on an Intel Bulverde 416MHz processor. Yes sir! Census agents are getting on with their business with an attitude of ‘I’m just doing my job’ as they capture your GPS front door coordinates. The catch phrase of these public servants echoes the hand that feeds them, the USA Census Bureau. “What are we doing on your doorstep?” Um, we are “Helping YOU make informed decisions,” replies the USA Census Agent, and don’t you think anything else!

Each US Census Bureau worker is assigned a funky HTC Census dual-band CDMA/EV-DO device that is WiFi but also comes with a phone jack, allowing it to be connected to a land-line network. The HTC Census is biometrically protected to the user, as this (Link no longer valid:  Census Bureau YouTube video explains. The ‘worker Census bees’ must have no problem with biometric harvesting, and soldier on collecting GPS co-ordinates for the Queen bee.

Once the GPS (Global Positioning System, formerly known as GNSS – global navigation satellite system developed by the US Department of Defense) co-ordinates are matched to the mapping address, the HTC spits out a ‘you have successfully completed this address’ which motivates the Census worker bee onto the next address.

This little viewed (“Not available”:   YouTube US Census Bureau video)  depicts a lovely lady who courteously knocks on the door and introduces herself. “Hi! My name is Elizabeth from the US Census Bureau.   We are in the area today, verifying addresses for the 2010 census. Here is a copy of our privacy act along with my purpose here today. What is your address? Is this also your mailing address. Great. Okay, thanks, that sums it up. If you don’t mind, I’ll be up front updating my maps.” The Census worker thanks the resident and they bid farewell to each other. How lovely!

Now back to the real world.   The reality is that US Census Bureau Agents are conducting themselves in a covert, shifty and stealthy manner. US citizens who have experienced US Census Bureau agents first hand have commented they seem untrustworthy, reveal very little when questioned and get the job done regardless.   In this home video, a Census worker gets upset he is being video taped. ‘Getting the job done’ means getting your GPS coordinates. But remember the US Census Bureau advertisement: “It’s easy, it’s important, it’s safe!” “It’s safe!”   Ah, I feel better after drinking the GPS Census Kool Aid.

The US Census Bureau goes on to say, “We honor privacy, protect confidentiality, share our expertise globally, and conduct our work openly. We are guided on this mission by our strong and capable workforce, our readiness to innovate, and our abiding commitment to our customers.” Who exactly are these customers? A bit of a clue to our readers who are not up on their history: the customer is NOT you. It’s DARPA, the CIA, FBI and other domestic spy agencies.

Let us remember these public servants responded to the (Link no longer valid)  US Census Bureau job ad which read: “Thousands are needed for temporary jobs. Conducting the census is a huge undertaking. Thousands of census takers are needed to update address lists and conduct interviews with community residents. Most positions require a valid driver’s license and use of a vehicle. However, public transportation may be authorized in certain areas.”

Would these temporary public servants be as gun ho if they were made aware that IBM had a dark and sinister story hiding in their blue chip closet?

What if the US Census advertisement read as follows?

“Conducting a military operation is hard work and GPS marking every door in America requires a hard worker! Ideally, you would not have studied history and specifically have not read IBM and the Holocaust by Edwin Black. You need to have persistent qualities even when abused, but remember the data you collect will be extremely helpful to Lockheed Martin and IBM who will pass on the data to government agencies which may or may not be used for sinister purposes.”

If we stepped back in time, we would realize that census data is extremely powerful in anyone’s hands, but what if those hands were Hitler’s? That infamous war criminal relied on IBM Census data in WWII to fuel the war machine. The census data provided by IBM to Nazi Germany was used for planning invasion and occupation plans for Europe and provided key information to the Nazis to exterminate the non compliant races.

Edwin Black, author of IBM and the Holocaust, and an award-winning, investigative journalist for the New York Times, painstakingly documented how IBM’s Dohemag subsidiary was integral to the Nazi killing machine by providing the necessary automation to ‘locate all the Jews of Europe.’ As the Third Reich embarked upon its plan of conquest and genocide, IBM and its subsidiaries helped create enabling technologies, step-by-step, from the Census, to identification and cataloging programs of the 1930’s, to the selections of the 1940’s.

According to IBM’s historical archives, German inventor Herman Hollerith developed and patented census tabulating equipment in the late Nineteenth Century.  The mock-up below represents the machine used by the U.S. Census Bureau in compiling the 1890 Census.

This equipment is representative of the tabulating system invented and developed by Herman Hollerith (1860-1929) and built for the U.S. Census Bureau. These machines were first used in compiling the 1890 Census. IBM History.

Hollerith’s patents were acquired by the Computing-Tabulating-Recording Co. (which later became IBM), and this work became the basis of the IBM Punch Card System.   But when IBM Germany formed its philosophical and technological alliance with Nazi Germany, census and registration took on a new mission. IBM Germany invented the racial census–listing not just religious affiliation, but bloodline going back generations. This was the Nazi data lust. Not just to count the Jews–but to identify them. Hooray for IBM work experience and double hooray for an IBM proven track record!

“We appreciate the Census Bureau’s continued confidence in IBM to support their efforts,” said John Nyland, Managing Partner, IBM Global Business Services, Public Sector obviously reflecting on the fact “Working with our business partners, IBM is helping the Census Bureau with innovative approaches to flexible and timely data analysis and dissemination.” IBM is also supporting the Census Bureau as a subcontractor to Lockheed Martin on the Decennial Response Integration System (DRIS) 2010 data collection contract. Yes that’s right, the world’s largest defense contractor by revenue is working with IBM to ensure America is counted.   But let’s not get alarmed. Let’s remember the US Census Bureau advertisement….”It’s easy, it’s important, its safe! … It’s safe!”

In 2005, Lockheed Martin won the contract to develop the Decennial Response Integration System (DRIS) in order to:

• Receive, capture, and standardize census data provided by respondents via census forms and telephone agents;
• Provide assistance to the public through the telephone; and
• Receive standardized data collected via hand-held computers.

In 2007, IBM joined the team, subcontracting with BAE Systems, ESRI, Space-Time Research, SAS, M-Cubed, Roundarch, Dataline, FWG, Measurable Results, RCM, PKW, Fenestra, and Acumen Solutions. [12]

In 2009, ACORN the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, also joined the Census team.

So what exactly are we concerned about? Are we saying that IBM and Lockheed Martin have used temporary public servants to undertake their cloaked military GPS Census operation?   That’s precisely what we are saying. Let us be crystal clear: if US Census workers were armed with their GPS and dressed in IBM/Lockheed Martin military apparel, there would be an outcry and perhaps an awakening on what is happening to the constitutional rights of Americans. But IBM has shown great veiling expertise and US citizens have   barely noticed   a massively organized militarization of their information quietly occurring, shrouded in a cloak and dagger US Census Bureau marketing campaign. It can’t get any more intimate and personal than your front door GPS coordinates, can it?

The question we must now ask, ‘Why are they doing this and what will they do with the information?’

US Census Workers Getting GPS Coordinates for Everyone’s Front Door

By jmalmberg

File this under the heading of “intrusive government”. The US Census Bureau is out canvassing every neighborhood in the country right now. You may ask “why?” since the Census isn’t due until next year. Well, the answer is simple. They are gathering GPS coordinates for the front door of every single family in the United States. The reason for gathering that information however may not be so simple. If you are alarmed by this, perhaps that’s because you should be.

Starting on April 1st of this year (INSERT: 2009), Census workers began hitting the streets to gather the GPS coordinates of each and every home in the country. Their efforts are being funded through a $700 million taxpayer funded contract with Lockheed Martin and IBM.

According to the Census Bureau, the collection of GPS coordinates will assist the government in collection of census data

. Huh?  Even after they collect this data, they still plan on going door to door next year (2010). At the very least, it would seem that this year’s efforts could be postponed until next year and the coordinates could be taken by the Census workers then. That would kill two birds with one stone and it would also save taxpayers some money.  Putting that point aside for a minute though, I can’t see how having the coordinates of your houses front door will assist in gathering data in any way. Perhaps the Census workers aren’t all that bright. They might mistakenly go to your side door and we can’t have that can we? After all, address information is so much more inaccurate. That will only get you within a few feet of the front door. Figuring it out from there may be too stressful for the poor Census takers.

The truth is that there is no good reason for the government to gather and store this information in a free society. There are however a number of reasons that a totalitarian government may want this type of data. For instance, weapons systems can be programmed with these coordinates for targeting (INSERT:  that is what they are doing right now. Unmanned drones launched from the U.S. desert to drop bombs on Yemen.)   Hitler and Stalin would have loved this kind of data. I’ll leave the rest to your imagination but none of the reasons for gathering this data are good.

There are reports already circulating that Census workers have violated trespassing laws to gather data and that people who have attempted to kick them off their property are being threatened with jail time and fines.

The Census is supposed to provide a count of people living in this country. But the questions on the census now go way beyond that. Among other things, they are asking people if they own guns, and how many they own. Some people are being asked what kind of toilets they have. What stocks they own. How much money they have in their bank accounts.

None of this is the government’s business, and the idea that the government may be able to get the GPS coordinates of every gun owner in the country is quite worrisome. Most people will probably provide this information because both Census workers and the Census forms say that you must answer or you could face jail time. The courts however have not agreed with this position.

The only data you really need to give the government is the number of people in your home. Take a look at the following video. You should find the information quite interesting.

When the Census workers come to your door, don’t answer it. And when you get your Census form in the mail, just give the government the bare minimum.

(INSERT (Sandra):  if the form requires you to fill in the form or face jail and a fine if you don’t, knowing that your name will go onto the census data base with this information, personally – – at least until my court case is settled – –  I am taking the position that the Government has seriously crossed the line.  It is operating way outside its boundaries.  Just as in my relationships with other people, I have to draw my line in the sand.)

There is no reason that any of us should assist the federal government in spying on us. The truth of the matter is that rather than us fearing the government, the government should fear the people. Under the Constitution, government workers are merely OUR employees.

In Canada, it is VERY PRUDENT to get out to next Saturday’s protest over the proroguing of Parliament. We need a massive effort, wherever the opportunity exists, to take back our Government.
