fresno police jade helm

by Pam NickelT-Jones | WeaponizedNews.Com | June 25, 2015
Is Fresno California about to experience a soft Jade Helm 15 Drill with the expansion and installation of more Big Brother Artificial Intelligence technology called SST “Shot Spotter”? And if so, why wasn’t the citizenry notified about their upcoming field training drill being conducted this coming Monday June 29th, 2015 from 8-11pm?  It always starts in the low income. minority areas. The ever increasing big brother surveillance grid that is being built all around us much like an open air prison. The story is always the same, We are from the government and we are here to help you to protect you yet these areas continue to decline and struggle just to survive everyday. But on Monday the 29th a 3 mile area of Fresno California will lose its 4th Amendment Right to Privacy when the Fresno Police Department goes in and installs the SST 24/7 surveillance grid equipment meant to track gun fire.
On Thursday evening I received a “Tip” from a concerned citizen in Fresno Ca. The attached flyer was found on the front door of her home in the Belmont and Calaveras area. As you can see from the flyer the Fresno Police Department will be conducting a Field Training “Drill” in her neighborhood on Monday June 29, 2015 from 8:00pm to 11:00pm. It states that the training will have “Uniformed Police Personnel” in her area using “REALISTIC GUNFIRE”!  The one thing left off the flyer is the fact that she will be losing her 4th amendment right to privacy.  Needles to say she is highly concerned and reached out to to see what we knew about it.  Can you imagine going over to visit your friend in this drill area for a BBQ on the night of the 29th and finding police running around shooting their guns at imaginary boogie men and not knowing what is going on? When we consider the ramifications of this it is mind boggling that the public has not been informed other then by a few flyers being placed on doors. One concern I have is how the elderly and children will be terrorized by this event. This is a tough part town to begin with and is already subjected to occasional gunfire so to have the local police go in after dark and purposely shoot guns seems like an act of terror that the elder and children in the neighborhoods do not need. Imagine the fear they will experience.
To find out more about this realistic gunfire training drill contacted several local agencies including Oliver L. Baines, President of the Fresno City Council and a member of the SJV Air Pollution Board. Paula Shoot with the Fresno Crime Prevention task force whose number is listed on the flyer, Councilman Steve Brandau, City Manager Bruce Rudd, Mayor Ashley Swearengin and the Fresno Police Department who directed us to their PIO, Lt. Joe Gomez. Councilman Baines was in Washington DC but his secretary was kind enough to send a text message his chief of staff who relayed a message to him. We received a call back from councilman Baines secretary to let us know he was not aware of this realistic gunfire drill and that he would contact Chief Jerry Dyer and report back to us. As of the time of this article we have not heard back from any other offices. The number on the flyer is to the Fresno Crime Protection task force where we left a message with Paula Shoot who did call us back only to let us know she knew very little about the field training other then she was to report to the area in uniform on the 29th. She stated she was just a “worker bee” and was not even sure why her number was on the flyer. She did say the exercise was being conducted at night time while children were off the streets and that she could not tell us what the exact areas were that they would be in and that she had no knowledge of what the drill was for nor of the cost involved to the local taxpayers and knew of no public notification or media release to inform the general public. She directed us to Detective Todd Frazier who is helping head up the event as her boss Lt.Newton was out of the country. Her knowledge of the event was limited but she did say that the use of “Gun Fire” by the police was necessary in order to install some new equipment.
Our attempt to reach the PIO (Public Information Officer) at the Fresno Police Department garnished us a lot of good information from Lt. Joe Gomez. Lt.Gomez informed us that he had no prior knowledge of the field training on the evening of the 29th until he opened his email  this morning to find several complaints from local citizens which prompted him to look into it immediately and he stated it concerned him as well. He told us the field training is part of the installation of some new technology purchased by the Fresno City Council called SST – “Gun Shot Location System” which will be installed the night of the drill in undisclosed locations in the area of Belmont and Calaveras due to its “High” Gun Shots Fired situation, however he had no stats on just how many gun shots are fired in that area. When we asked for a list of these areas where the drill will take place we were denied. According to Lt.Gomez the new technology will triangulate on any shots fired in the area of the new equipment so police can pinpoint where the shots are coming from, he all so informed us that similar drills are done in the city but would not disclose any more information. When asked about the cost of the SST technology being installed in secret locations and the cost to the taxpayers to install it he had no answers. We asked him if the “Shot Spotter” technology was an extension of the Big Brother spy grid we are seeing explode all around us and if this equipment can “Watch us and Listen to us” to which he replied NO, that would be illegal. Yet in a news report out of Oakland California we clearly see that the SST system listens in 24 hours a day 7 days a week to anyone talking in the area, a clear violation of our 4th amendment rights. In the news piece below you clearly learn the Shot Spotter has No privacy policy and is Misleading and intentionally confusing to the public.
Lt.Gomez asked if I was opposed to the technology being installed and I told him yes I was. I explained that by the time they heard a gun shot in my area with this SST technology and got to me I would probably already be dead and they would only be there to pick up my dead body and write a report. I told him I would much rather see everyone in that high shots fired area be taught basic gun handling safety, put through a CCW class and armed with their own personal protection devices, a Gun! As a women I would feel much safer being able to protect myself by reaching for my own safety device ie: Gun then reaching for a phone and hoping the police get there in time to help me. Americans have put to much faith in the police I explained and now  days when the police are called and show up they shoot you or your pet so what’s the point?
jade-helm-15-mapIn a recent interview by Pete Santilli, Lt.Roy Potter raised grave concerns about the upcoming “Jade Helm 15” military exercise being conducted in an ever growing list of states where Texas, California and Utah are classified as “Hostile”. Live ammunition is being used during Jade Helm 15 and several schools were recently blown up as part of this drill scaring an entire community.
Americans are becoming increasingly alarmed as they are witnessing a buildup of military style police departments from coast to coast and now the Department of Homeland Security is giving the police department’s tanks, high power military weapons, grenades, grenade launchers and other military gear like we are going to war, but the question is with who? It feels like our local police who are suppose to be serving the people are preparing for something much bigger as they are armed to the teeth like they  are going to war with the very American citizens that pay them to keep our streets safe. I find all of this very alarming and would like to see every citizen start asking why? Why are we consumed with so much fear. Why are we allowing our local police to act and arm themselves like a war is imminent, going into our neighborhoods at night and firing guns? Why are we allowing the military to use live fire and conduct drills such as Jade Helm 15 in our front yards? Where do we as the American people draw the line?
After researching for this article I have come to the conclusion that the minority and low income people in our community are becoming the unknowing victims and test subjects of a growing policing grid that is stripping Americans of their unalienable god given rights. If the government was really concerned about bettering the lives of these citizens and the community as a whole that struggle everyday to provide the basics for their families then why is the city spending millions of dollars and never accomplishing anything that truly helps them? We are witnessing the enslavement of an entire population through the use of a highly technological policing grid. Just look around you, cameras on every corner, spy devices buried into the guts of all new appliances so big brother can hear and see everything you do. Cellphones that track your every movement and record everything you say, TVs that watch and listen to you  and even your computers are now tracking you and scanning your facial features while scanning your irises. What I see is the loss of all our natural born freedoms and liberty’s in the name of keeping us safe, but the question is from whom? It is becoming more and more like a prison and the citizens are the inmates and inmates are used as slave labor. If you have seen the movie “Minority Report” then you should ask yourselves “Is this the future we want to leave to our children and grandchildren?  I for one DO NOT!
Now is the time to question everything the government does!

True Patriot

 a person who loves and strongly supports or fights for his or her country

Thomas Jefferson

  Born in 1743 in Albemarle County, Virginia, inheriting from his father, a planter and surveyor, some 5,000 acres of land, and from his mother, a Randolph, high social standing. He studied at the College of William and Mary, then read law. In 1772 he married Martha Wayles Skelton, a widow, and took her to live in his partly constructed mountaintop home, Monticello.
Freckled and sandy-haired, rather tall and awkward, Jefferson was eloquent as a correspondent, but he was no public speaker. In the Virginia House of Burgesses and the Continental Congress, he contributed his pen rather than his voice to the patriot cause. As the "silent member" of the Congress, Jefferson, at 33, drafted the Declaration of Independence. In years following he labored to make its words a reality in Virginia. Most notably, he wrote a bill establishing religious freedom, enacted in 1786.
Jefferson succeeded Benjamin Franklin as minister to France in 1785. His sympathy for the French Revolution led him into conflict with Alexander Hamilton when Jefferson was Secretary of State in President Washington's Cabinet. He resigned in 1793.

Words of Wisdom from a man who lived long ago, Whom we owe our Freedoms and Country to!

"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."

"When a man assumes a public trust, he should consider himself as public property."

No freeman shall be debarred the use of arms (within his own lands or tenements

But it does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods or no God. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.

"A little rebellion now and then is a good thing...."

"If people let government decide which foods they eat and medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny." 

Never trouble another with what you can do yourself.

He also invented some of your favorite things

dumbwaiters for wine bottles
the hideaway bed
macaroni and cheese, not to mention
the pedometer
the plow moldboard of least resistance
the polygraph (not a lie detector, but a copying machine)
a revolving bookstand
the spherical sundial
an improved swivel chair


the contention that true patriots would be willing to do anything for their country

Maya Angelou an American With Spirit


We will Miss You!


People do only what they know how to do, so I have patience. I pray that people will have patience with themselves and learn more."

Born Marguerite Annie Johnson in St. Louis, Angelou worked a number of jobs before publishing her first book, "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings," which focused on her own life, in 1969.

Nominated for a National Book Award, the tome skyrocketed Angelou to national fame -- especially given the controversial nature of several sections, which dealt with child molestation, racism, and sexuality.

"I thought that it was a mild book. There's no profanity," Angelou told AP. "It speaks about surviving, and it really doesn't make ogres of many people. I was shocked to find there were people who really wanted it banned, and I still believe people who are against the book have never read the book."

After the success of her first book, Angelous wrote the screenplay and score for the 1972 film, "Georgia, Georgia," becoming the first African-American woman to author a screenplay that was filmed. It was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize.

She would go on to write more than 30 published works, including five more memoirs and many books of poetry.

Beloved by stars, Angelou was a mentor to Oprah Winfrey and favorite of many presidents. She spoke at the inauguration of President Bill Clinton and was awarded the Presidential Medal of the Arts in 2000. In 2011, President Barack Obama honored her with the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

"I'm learning that I have patience and that patience is a great gift," she said.

"The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."

“When the people fear the government, that's tyranny; when the government fears the people, that's freedom.”

"The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not." 

A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine."

The price of liberty is eternal vigilance."

Thomas Jefferson

HE SPEAKS..............

 They're standing on the corner and they can't speak English. I can't even talk the way these people talk: Why you ain't, Where you is, What he drive, Where he stay, Where he work, Who you be... And I blamed the kid until I heard the mother talk. And then I heard the father talk. Everybody knows it's important to speak English except these knuckleheads. You can't be a doctor with that kind of crap coming out of your mouth. In fact you will never get any kind of job making a decent living. People marched and were hit in the face with rocks to get an education, and now we've got these knuckleheads walking around. The lower economic people are not holding up their end in this deal. These people are not parenting. They are buying things for kids. $500 sneakers for what? And they won't spend $200 for Hooked on Phonics. I am talking about these people who cry when their son is standing there in an orange suit. Where were you when he was 2? Where were you when he was 12? Where were you when he was 18 and how come you didn't know that he had a pistol? And where is the father? Or who is his father? People putting their clothes on backward: Isn't that a sign of something gone wrong? People with their hats on backward, pants down around the crack, isn't that a sign of something? Or are you waiting for Jesus to pull his pants up? Isn't it a sign of something when she has her dress all the way up and got all type of needles [piercing] going through her body? What part of Africa did this come from? We are not Africans. Those people are not Africans; they don't know a thing about Africa. With names like Shaniqua, Taliqua and Mohammed and all of that crap, and all of them are in jail. Brown or black versus the Board of Education is no longer the white person's problem. We have got to take the neighborhood back. People used to be ashamed. Today a woman has eight children with eight different 'husbands' — or men or whatever you call them now. We have millionaire football players who cannot read. We have million-dollar basketball players who can't write two paragraphs. We as black folks have to do a better job. Someone working at Wal-Mart with seven kids, you are hurting us. We have to start holding each other to a higher standard. We cannot blame the white people any longer. – Bill Cosby

WHERES OUR COMMON SENSE? I mean The City Council of San Rafael, California


Government isn’t content to control public behavior, it is now clamping down on how citizens act at home, as well.

Multiple media outlets are reporting that the city council of San Rafael, California has passed an ordinance prohibiting smoking inside residences with shared walls. This would include, of course, apartments, condominiums, duplexes, and other multi-family dwellings.

The ordinance was passed in October 2012, but did not go into effect until November 14, 2013.

According to a statement made by the city council on the city’s official website, the new regulation strengthens “the City’s municipal code to further protect the community from secondhand smoke.”

In particular, the ordinance “applies to all new and existing properties and does not allow grandfathering rights. Landlords and property owners are required to enforce this ordinance through new lease language or lease amendments as well as posting signage.”

The ordinance may be the strictest in the country, and city officials are proud to be out front on the issue. Breitbart News quoted Rebecca Woodbury, "an analyst in the San Rafael's city manager's office who helped write the ordinance," as boasting: "I'm not aware of any ordinance that's stronger."

And the Blaze revealed:

The city’s mayor, Gary Phillips, is apparently well-aware of the leadership role San Rafael may have given itself with the decision. He said that the city is “happy to blaze a trail” before the vote took place.

“We’re most happy to be in the forefront of the issue because we think it will greatly benefit our residents and those visiting San Rafael, and we think it will set the tone for other cities as well,” the mayor proclaimed.

The Breitbart News story reported on the opposition to this alarming intrusion into the sanctity of the home:

"The science for that is spurious at best," said George Koodray, the state coordinator for Citizens Freedom Alliance and the Smoker's Club in New Jersey.

Steve Stanek, a research fellow at the free-market oriented policy group Heartland Institute in Chicago, supported the rights of smokers.

Stanek, a non-smoker, said, "My sympathies aren't with smokers because I am one, it's because of the huge growth in laws and punishments and government restricting people more and more.”

Beyond the city’s reliance on questionable science, the violation of the “Takings Clause” of the Constitution may actually be actionable.

The Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution reads, in relevant part, “nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.”

Over the years, the U.S. Supreme Court has handed down several decisions aimed at defining the scope of the so-called Takings Clause of the Fifth Amendment.

An article from the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law reports:

The Court has had a difficult time articulating a test to determine when a regulation becomes a taking.  It has said there is "no set formula" and that courts "must look to the particular circumstances of the case."  The Court has identified some relevant factors to consider: the economic impact of the regulation, the degree to which the regulation interferes with investor-backed expectations, and the character of the government action.

By applying the ordinance to owners and renters, an argument can be made that its enforcement will impact the ability of investors to receive a return on their investment in property within San Rafael. Where once owners could sign leases with any citizen, regardless of their smoking preference, that property will now be restricting to renting to those who do not smoke. That may be fine going forward, but considering the “no grandfathering” clause of the ordinance, many of those who have purchased buildings as investment income property will now see their ability to achieve occupancy severely reduced by an overzealous local government.

As the ordinance has only been in effect for about 10 days as this is being written, it seems that local land owners would have a cause of action against the San Rafael city council. Should the owners of apartments, condos, and all other residences that contain units that share walls be able to demonstrate that their property rights have been diminished by the city council without the “just compensation” required by the Constitution, then the ordinance would be subject to being struck down.

Should the ordinance be enforced as written, owners of qualifying property will find themselves unable to use their property as intended and unable to recover for their losses.

There are those opponents of the ordinance who have chosen, unfortunately, to focus on the soundness of the science rather than on the assault on the fundamental right of property.

In the long run, health risks identified by science or by “science” will change. There will rarely be consensus on such issues, particularly when forces on both sides have billions of dollars to pour into competing studies (Michael Bloomberg and the tobacco industry, for example).

What does not change, however, and is not subject to contemporary or corporate manipulation, is the sacrosanct place afforded property in the Anglo-American legal tradition.

Proponents of the law point to the “nuisance exception” that the Supreme Court has established. Put simply, the high court has ruled that the right to injury neighbors is not covered by the Takings Clause, and thus need not be compensated for should the government decided to regulate the injurious behavior.

This has gone too far, however.

Writing for the Cato Institute, Roger Pilon explains the potential for abuse of the nuisance exception to the Takings Clause:

In defining the nuisance exception, therefore, care must be taken to tie it to a realistic conception of rights, which the classic common law more or less did. Thus, uses that injure a neighbor through various forms of pollution (e.g., by particulate matter, noises, odors, vibrations, etc.) or through exposure to excessive risk count as classic common-law nuisances because they violate the neighbor’s rights. They can be prohibited, with no compensation owing to those who are thus restricted.

By contrast, uses that “injure” one’s neighbor through economic competition, say, or by blocking “his” view (which runs over your property) or offending his aesthetic sensibilities are not nuisances because they violate no rights the neighbor can claim. Nor will it do to simply declare, through positive law, that such goods are “rights.”

Indeed, that is the route that has brought us to where we are today. After all, every regulation has some reason behind it, some “good” the regulation seeks to bring about. If all such goods were pursued under the police power—as a matter of right—then the owners from whom the goods were taken would never be compensated. The police power would simply eat up the compensation requirement.

And that is where the citizens of San Rafael find themselves today. The city council has unconstitutionally exercised the police power and has “eaten up” the protected property rights of owners of multi-family dwellings.

Although the fight wouldn’t be an easy one, property owners in San Rafael affected by the newly enforced ordinance would be wise to stand against their local government’s deprivation of their right to enjoy their property. When regulations run amok, property rights are almost always the victim.
