Surprise! Census Comes Early, With A GPS To Map Your FRONT DOOR

The 2010 census has started in 2009.

I have already confronted two census workers this year.

The first, in February, was an older lady who came to the door and asked if she could get some information. I let her and her laptop in and answered some questions, refused on others and she said OK, it was not mandatory and left.

The second was just last week . A man parked out front for a while and then drove next door to an unoccupied house that I also own and stopped, got out and went to the front door. I walked over and asked if I could help him. He explained he was from the census and wanted to know if anyone lived in the house. I told him no but he still wanted to know the street address number of the house. I said I didn't know as I have never had to use it and he thanked me and left.

Both appeared to be just average people, hired hands for the government doing a job they were paid for. I didn't see if they had a GPS unit.

I know, you thought the census (now well in control of Rahm Emanuel) didn’t start until 2010! Well, seems that workers have begun already, coming door-to-door with handheld GPS units and questions about every garage and storage barn on your property. Robert LaMacchia, head of the Census Bureau’s geography division, says they’ll capture the latitude and longitude of the front door of every house, apartment and improvised shelter they find.”We will actually knock on doors and look for hidden housing units,” he says. “We will find converted garages; from the outside, it may not look like anybody lives there.” This is so the census will end up with the geographic coordinates — accurate to within 10 feet — for about 110 million residences.

The US Census Bureau is currently going door-to-door, nationwide, to place YOUR front door “coordinates” into a Global Positioning System (GPS) for marking/mapping purposes; without your consent - and if you are not home - without your knowledge. Now, why does anyone need GPS Coordinates on every front door in America? Who is really doing this? What good reason can they possibly have for such an expensive project? Listen to this interview with citizen Jane Lesko on the Power Hour and find out more. (The interview starts about 7/8 of an inch in on the podcast slider)

From Channeling Reality:

The U.S. Census Bureau is doing an Address Canvassing Operation using GPS- equipped handheld computers to GPS every front door of homes, apartments, converted garages, homeless shelters, and anything they believe that someone might live in, in America, so that the Bureau can send every household a Census Questionnaire in March of 2010. (There are other people we have spoken to who believe that the GPS front doors of America may be used for MILITARY purposes and that this is a violation of privacy. They want the exact location of your front door.)

The U.S. Census Bureau awarded Shreveport, La.-based Michael Baker Jr. Inc. an estimated $10 million contract for data collection services that involve Global Positioning System (GPS) technology.

From the Baker Website:

The company, an engineering unit of Michael Baker Corp., won the multi-year award to support the bureau’s Geography Division in updating a key geographic data system. Baker has been a partner to the United States military since the 1940’s, supporting Department of Defense (DoD) operations spanning the globe. We understand the culture and know the demands and responsibilities facing installation commanders.

We’ve mastered support processes by focusing top architectural, planning, engineering, and geospatial and mapping talent to supply cost-effective, timely and innovative solutions that are aligned with the diverse missions of each military organization. While force structures, weaponry and missions change, Baker helps keep America’s military installations fully mission capable. Baker is putting life cycle planning concepts for a multitude of federal, state, and local clients. Since 1972, our all-risk, all-hazards approach has helped clients plan and prepare for natural disasters, technological emergencies, internal/external risks, and terrorist threats. Our diverse staff of emergency planning and response specialists, planners, engineers, and architects supports a broad range of multi-discipline projects.

Baker (NYSE Amex: BKR), founded in 1940, provides professional engineering and consulting expertise for public and private sector clients worldwide. The Company’s markets of focus include Aviation, Defense, Environmental, Facilities, Geospatial Information Technologies, Homeland Security, Municipal & Civil, Pipelines & Utilities, Transportation, and Water. Services span the complete life cycle of infrastructure and managed asset projects, including planning, design, construction services, asset management, and asset renewal.

The Census, in it’s own words, has been “re-engineered”, including the mandate to “Collect and tabulate long-form data every year throughout the decade through a large household survey (The American Community Survey).”

ACORN signed on as a national partner with the U.S. Census Bureau in February 2009 to assist with the recruitment of the 1.4 million temporary workers needed to go door-to-door to count every person in the United States — currently believed to be more than 306 million people.

The 2010 census will be the “short form”, however, there is the clever subterfuge of the “American Community Survey” which is purposely not called a census and is sent to a “sampling” of US homes such that each home receives one not more than once every five years. Its what they used to call the long form as the 2010 census will only contain the short form. Here is a link to the questions on the survey.

Why does the government (and ACORN) need to have the GPS coordinates of your FRONT DOOR? Your house is probably on Google Maps already. But the front door? Sounds like a jackboot convenience to me. This is a developing story, and several reports of those who have already been visited by the GPS squad can be found in this forum thread.

Thanks to Saladin for the link.


  1. Kenny: and that's not all, the USA is such a fascist-jail (that's what i call USA), that police cars drive by the neighborhoods of poorer american class, not to protect them, but to smear on their personal, private lives. That's why USA citizens are so scared and schizophrenic. Coz in this hell of USA we got cops all over the place.

    Even inside the supermarkets we see cops watchign what people buy.

    What we have to do is to be illegalists, not legalists. Fuck the laws.

    Like the singer from the rock band Tool who has a song, that says that laws are only laws if u get caught (The song is "Jerk Off")

    So let's just destroy those GPS toys !!



  2. They don't call those bombs smart for nothing.

    Those GPS coordinates could be used to deliver a bunker buster right thru your front door.

    Here's another weird aspect in a similar vein:

    I wanted to get hi-speed 'Net access, but the only company that offers that around here is Alltel.

    So I contacted them to get signed up and gave them the usual info, and was willing to give them my credit card number when they asked for my driver's license number???

    Told them they already had enough info on me to find out more about me than I already know but they wouldn't budge, insisting I give them that number.

    I said NO and hung up.

    Why in the hell do they need a driver's license number for a computer modem card?

    I bet it's some dictate from the DHS.

    And yes, I've already got one visit from the Census gang, one got out and asked my address, but nothing else.

    She was holding some type of Blackberry unit that she was plugging info into, but whether or not it had GPS I don't know.

  3. I asked my son-in-law today if he had seen a census person at his house. He had. One came up, got out and was taking notes. When asked what he was doing, he said he worked for the census and the only question he asked was 'did they use the front door or back door most often.' ???

    Greg, you might try calling Alltel and asking for a supervisor. To get the business someone with a little authority may waive the DL #. And what if you didn't have a DL, maybe taken away for a DUI? Would they refuse to give you service?


    Faith That Is Un-Shakable In Financial Hard Times
    Dear Friends

    The current financial shaking that dominates the earth is a spiritual shaking, as well as a marketplace one. Hebrews 12:26 says God shakes not only the earth but also the heavens. And He has an express purpose for it.

    "the removal of what can be shaken, that is, what he has made, so that what cannot be shaken may remain."

    In a time of shaking, God purifies the inhabitants of the earth of those things that are not of Him, that what is of Him may come forth. Of course many do not receive it, and harden themselves. It is then destructive to them. Believers also experience the shaking, but if we walk in faith, allow Him to expose our hearts and repent, we come forth as gold. The current shaking is working in several ways.

    1. This Shaking Confronts Mankind About his Fundamental Trust.
    For those who trust in mammon, the shakings generates fear and anxiety. Most men are looking for financial stability to solve their fears. But what we all need is spiritual stability.

    Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will trust in the name of the Lord our God.
    Psalms 20:7

    As Christians we say "we trust in God for our provision".... but our hearts betray us... most of us have the same anxieties as the world! This is OK! It is exactly what God wants to show us. He is using the shaking to reveal that our trust has been in horses and chariots more than Him. Now we can repent and come forth as gold!

    That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honor and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:
    I Peter 1:7

    2. The Corruptions of Capitalism are Being Exposed. Mans Sinful Systems are Being Revealed.
    Many Christians feel capitalism is a God given financial system. There are reasons to think this since capitalism allows man the freedom and creativity God made him for. But in reality capitalism is part of mans kingdom and can only work when there are the virtues of honesty and trust. Currently the greed and manipulation that dominate capitalism are being exposed, and many of us invested in it! Lets get it straight, the marketplace has been under the dominion of sin! Capitalism can work for a godly people, but it collapses for a corrupt people.

    This calls for a reform of soul, a salvation from corrupt character. Without revival our nations will only descend deeper into the mire of financial sin! In short, without a conviction of sin, righteousness and judgment, there is no hope! Oh church, where is the preacher of righteousness in this hour? Why is the church praying for finances to be saved, rather than souls to be saved? We should be praying that hearts get back on track before we pray for the marketplace to get back on track! It is time to declare that we have been serving mammon and are reaping the rewards of sin. It is time for Gods people to demonstrate righteousness in the marketplace!

    3. The Shaking is Separating the Leaven of the World Out Of The Church
    Jesus told the disciples to beware of three kinds of leaven. The leaven of the pharisees, the saducees and Herod. Leaven is a way of thinking that permeates everything. The current financial shaking is separating the church from the leaven of the world. Here are some features of the leaven.

    The Leaven of The Pharisees is depending on religious performance and legalism, a Christianity without Gods love or grace. This shaking will strip us of the leaven of the Pharisees, and we will see that provision comes because of God's love for us. Our own righteousness does not bring His provision. A few years ago I asked God why we were financially struggling when I tithed and gave. He taught me to depend on His love and not my self righteousness. Jesus taught us that the Father loves us and knows we need these things, and will provide.

    Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. 33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
    Matt. 6:31-33

    The Leaven of the Saducees is a life of unbelief, a Christianity without the supernatural intervention of God. This shaking will strip us of the leaven of the Saducees as we become desperate for His invention. Like the Israelites learned in the desert, either Jehovah acts or we perish! We must learn to depend on Him for daily bread during the crisis. We must expect miracles! Many times my wife and I have seen many times already. I may have no work for my business and bills are mounting. We pray for Gods Kingdom to come, and for our daily bread, and even while the prayer is being said the phone will ring with a Good Paying Contract. He IS the God who acts! We WILL depend on Him for our daily bread.

    The Leaven of Herod - is a life of living by expediency, doing our own will, even if it is unrighteous. The leaven of Herod is a Christianity without the Kingdom of God. But for the the kingdom is becoming real. The Lord wants to show us His government on earth. through His people. It is not 'anything that works", but a walk with Him. Sometimes its a road that makes no sense. For example, when I left pastoral ministry five years ago it made no sense. I had no salary. I felt the Lord say I should not receive unemployment insurance. We became desperate and began to learn the lessons about finances and trust that the church faces now. We have been learning a new way of walking with Him seldom seen in the church. He wants a people who know their God!

    4. The Shaking is Forcing People to Depend On God
    In many places people are praying as never before. Now they see the shortcomings of their faith. When God was shaking my life I began to ask Him "why am I so dependent on my circumstances?" "Why is my joy tied to money?" "Lord, show me how to live in full dependence on you and not financial circumstances. Teach me how to trust you." David discovered the joy of the Lord apart from circumstances in Psalm 4 and I wanted that joy and trust!

    There are many that say, "Oh that we mights see some good? LORD, lift thou up the light of thy countenance upon us." (in other words help us in our financial problems. ed.) 7 But thou hast put more joy in my heart, than they have when their grain and wine abound" Psalm 4:6,7

    Paul said he learned the secret of living in plenty and want. It's contentment with God! The current shaking is forcing us to face what our heart is like, and LEARN to be content! Remarkably, once we are content He gives us our hearts desire, and supplies us all we need. The secret is contentment, and we can learn it!

    I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. 12 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. 13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.But godliness with contentment is great gain.
    Phillipians 4:11-13

    5. God is Using The Shaking To bring Forth His Kingdom
    The Spirit of God is transforming His church into a Kingdom people. For nearly two millenea it seems like a cloud has obscured the Kingdom of God from view. In periods of revival there seemed to be breakthroughs, but eventually spiritual freedom and love seemed to be overrun by legalism, worldly systems, or unbelief. Now we are pressing into the kingdom again. Financially we understand the Kingdom of God is different from other Kingdoms. Heres how.

    The Kingdom of Creation - Sowing and reaping dominate the created order. Sowing and reaping is fundamental to all living things. God has made us to participate in nature and sowing and reaping .But it is not the Kingdom of God.

    The Kingdom of Man - Buying and selling dominate the kingdoms of man. God gave man ability to create and profit by it. But greed and sin have perverted it and have generated the current crisis. It needs to be redeemed. But this is not the Kingdom of God either.

    The Kingdom of God - Giving and receiving dominate the Kingdom of God. God is filled with love and favor toward man. He has reconciled Himself to us at the cross! He is full of mercy and compassion towards us. When we participate in His Kingdom we receive from His bounty and we too are filled with love and favor towards others. We give and bless with the same heart as God. The Kingdom of God flows through the world as it flows through our life. .

    Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken,
    let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe,
    for our "God is a consuming fire." Hebrews 12:28-29
