‘Old Ironsides’ Provides a Secure Analog Meter Defense

‘Old Ironsides’ has protected this Sacramento home for the duration of SMUD’s deployment

Forcible installations have led to an incredible array of defensive structures being built around analog meters to protect homes from the “smart” scourge.  We received the above photo of analog protection dubbed “Old Ironsides” from Eric Windheim, Director of Sacramento Smart Meter Awareness.  Definitely wins the prize for sturdiest defense we’ve  seen.

These photos below document the absurd lengths people are required to go to protect their own homes from the “deployment.”  They also capture the creativity and adaptability of ordinary people, and the strength of our communities to come up with solutions.

Maria Acosta of the Quebec-based anti-smart meter group Basses-Laurentide Refuse writes:

Here in Quebec we are keeping our analog meter by constructing a box around it or using other devices so that Hydro can take the reading but not change the meter in our absence.  Those that have locks use one without a key or fill the key hole with construction glue. The heads of the screws are flattened to avoid unscrewing them and screws are covered with construction glue.

It is the only way we can sleep tight and not worry that in a 15 minute absence our meter is changed.

Note screws have been filed to prevent removal


Maria continues:


“As soon as the first boxed analog meter was publicised, citizens started doing the same thing and asking how to make them.

Three citizens started to construct them, two for profit (one fair, the other barely covering expenses) and the third he charges you for the material and a contribution. He uses the money from the contribution to construct to citizens who cannot afford the 40 $.”



This analog meter is sure to stay warm and dry (and safe from theft) in its mini-cabin thanks to the efforts of resident Mr. J Roberge

There’s definitely some religious imagery here…

Who can resist a cuckoo clock analog?

You can read me, but you can’t get me!

Snug as a bug in a rug

No trespassing, Hydro Quebec!

    NSA and JNLWD are partnering with Virginia State Police and local police implanting people with biochips. Read “A Note on Uberveillance” by M. G. and Katina Michael. it enables Uberveillance. “In its ultimate form, überveillance has to do with more than automatic identification technologies that we carry with us. It has to do with under-the-skin technology that is embedded in the body, such as microchip implants; it is that which cuts into the flesh – a charagma (mark). Think of it as Big Brother on the inside looking out.” Newport News Police and Virginia State Police had a doctor implant me w/o my knowledge and consent with a biochip. A U. S. Attorney for the NSA/DOJ pretended to be my attorney. It enables torture and thought monitoring. They use it as a sensor and pulse energy projectiles at you. I had a heart attack. It enables voice to skull communication. See LRAD white papers or audio spotlight by Holosonics. Law enforcement believes we will only be safe if they know where we are at all times, what we are doing and what we are thinking! See Safeguards in a World of Ambient Intelligence by Springer page 9. See Mental Health and Terrorism by Amin Gadit. He states, “Of late, there are reports of a new and dreadful invention of weapons of violence that are called Bioelectromagnetic Weapons. According to the description by an Institute of Science in Society, these weapons operate at the speed of light, can kill, torture and enslave without making physical appearance. It further adds that voices and visions, daydreams and nightmares are the most astonishing manifestations of this weapon system, it is also capable of crippling the human subject by limiting his/her normal range of movement, causing acute pain the equivalent of major organ failure or even death and interferes with normal functions of human senses. It can cause difficulty with breathing and induce seizures besides damage to the tissues and organs. Through this form of terrorism, it is possible to persuade subjects that their mind is being read; their intellectual property is being plundered and can even motivate suicide or murder. Pulsed Energy projectiles (PEPs) are another form of weaponry that is used to paralyze a victim with pain. According to Peter Philips, a scientist from USA, circumstances may soon arrive in which anti-war or human right protestors suddenly feel a burning sensation akin to touching a hot skillet over their entire body. Simultaneously they may hear terrifying nauseating screaming, which while not produced externally, fills their brains with overwhelming disruption. This new invention is dreadful addition to the armamentarium of weapons of abuse and torture. Manifestations of the effects of these occult weapons can mimic mental ill health and add further to the misery of the victims.” See Bio Initiative Report 2012. See Forbes and search Brandon Raub. Law enforcement tases citizens into “excited delirium” (see at nij org) to make them act in ways they normally would not. I believe they are directly responsible for the Virginia Tech massacre. There are 3 reasons to have it implanted 1) mental health, 2) criminal record, and 3) infectious disease. If you don’t meet any of those requirements like me, they’ll falsify your records. All the mass shootings are the work of law enforcement. They want to take away your right to bear arms and make America a police state. People aren’t suddenly going crazy, they’re being tortured. I also believe the biochip to be responsible for PTSD. Read Brian Castner’s book “A Long Walk”. I have the same ambiguous pains, twitches, heart attack, night mares, day mares, gurgling, etc. I never served in the war. What do we have in common? The biochip. Suicide is one way to get relief. Virginia’s suicide rate is higher than the national average and the military suicide rate is unacceptable! You can check your upper right buttock, upper right shoulder. They are just under the skin.

    JB, certainly the world has dangers, but I think you may be over-extrapolating in an effort to make sense of what you are experiencing. Suicide is not the answer. Look to Jesus. Things can get better.
