FirstNet is governed by a 15-member Board consisting of the Attorney General of the United States, the Secretary of Homeland Security, the Director of the Office of Management and Budget, and 12 members appointed by the Secretary of Commerce. The FirstNet Board is composed of representatives from public safety; local, state and federal government; and the wireless industry.

Fierce Wireless Tech reports:

jerseynet_logoSetting out to meet an ambitious timeline, first responders in three regions of New Jersey are expected later this year to use a new dedicated public-safety LTE network composed entirely of deployable infrastructure operating on 700 MHz Band 14 spectrum licensed to the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet), IWCE’s Urgent Communications reports.

PMC Associates, a New Jersey-based company specializing in mission-critical radio solutions for first responders, is teaming up with Oceus Networks and Fujitsu Network Communications to build the proof-of-concept network, known as JerseyNet.

PMC Associates is providing integration and support services, while Oceus Networks is supplying the LTE core and the radio access network (RAN). Fujitsu is designing, equipping and managing the wireless and wireline backhaul portions of the network.

Bryan Casciano, vice president of sales for PMC Associates, told IWCE’s Urgent Communications that JerseyNet is designed to include more than 30 cells on wheels (COWs) and six systems on wheels (SOWs) that can be deployed in various locations via SUVs, vans or trailers.

Under the terms of its Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP) funding, the JerseyNet deployment must be completed by September, a requirement that is expected to be met under the current schedule. “We want to have all of this installed by June,” Casciano told the publication….

Big Brother to monitor ‘sovereign citizens’ | WND

Orwell hit this one on the head…

So if you had any doubt that NDAA, CISPA, DHS, drones, warrant-less searches, TSA, the Newtown-circus and citizen disarmament etc. were a prelude to your preemptive criminalization, consider yourself disabused of that comforting notion.

Make no mistake about it you tinfoil hat wearing, gun toting, Bible clinging, knuckle dragging anachronisms:  YOU ARE the the threat. YOU are the enemy. YOU must be handled, managed, silenced, marginalized and entrapped.

The state fears nothing so much as an awakened, empowered and angry citizenry and so you sheep are not allowed off the farm. Punishment will be severe.

So, what are you going to do?  I think that the time for calls and letters to Congressmen, candlelight vigils, writing op-eds and cordial, thought provoking discourse to the uninformed has long been over:  That stuff is pointless.  The time is here to get ready for the long pull, the dark struggle, the end game.

I say it is time to disappear, opt out and go Galt.  I say the ‘laws’ and Government are now so illegal, so immoral that the only ethical course of action is to withdraw from that context.  In other words, I quit.  I am forming and fostering a new society of the like minded.   If that makes me a “sovereign man” to you Mr. FBI person, so be it. And fuck you.  I’ll be out here working for the good, and working against you if needed.

Good luck on getting me back in the corral.

G.E.

With almost no media coverage, the White House last week announced its new Interagency Working Group to Counter Online Radicalization to Violence that will target not only Islamic terrorists but so-called violent “sovereign citizens.” Continue reading

Big Sis Monitoring Your Tweets /Facebook Posts When You Use Words on DHS Watchlist | Reaganite Republican

According to a DHS document, the snoopy agency is maintaining an arm-long list of what they call ‘Items Of Interest’, categorized by subject, i.e. ‘Domestic Security’, ‘Southwest Border Violence’, etc. These are the specific words/terms contractors have been hired to monitor online, abbreviated to ‘I.O.I’ by the DHS.  And while you might expect them to keep an eye on those posting more than a passing mention of terms like ‘Al Qaida’, ‘weapons cache’, ‘jihad’, ‘massacre’, according to the DHS order far more mundane/widely-utilized words can also bring the watchful eye of the agency if posted on Twitter or Facebook, i.e.-… via Reaganite Republican
