Green Police: Remember This TV Ad? It’s Almost Here: FEMA, DHS, TSA.

Written by Gary North on April 16, 2012

This seemed clever in 2010.

Today, it’s illegal to manufacture 100-watt incandescent light bulbs in the USA.

Here is what we are now facing.

In its Environmental Justice Strategy document, the DHS says the idea is to “include environmental justice practices in our larger mission efforts involving federal law enforcement and emergency response activities” and to incorporate environmental justice in “securing the homeland”.

The DHS sees its role in promoting “environmental justice” as not just limited to overseeing reviews of its own operations, but also “through regulatory permitting activities” in conjunction with state, local and tribal governments.

It’s not just the Department of Homeland Security. The TSA will be involved. So will FEMA. So willl the Secret Service. (The Secret Service has previously been used only to protect the President and to enforce laws against counterfeiting.) All rold, 11 agencies will be involved.

The DHS’ environmental justice strategy follows calls by Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano for the federal agency to start battling “climate change” as a national security issue.

The government is making good use of the public’s fear of man-made global warming, for which there is no evidence, to tighten the screws on our freedoms.

  1. Blazing Scriptures says:

    Big governments are always highly corrupt because with big government comes great power with access to massive wealth. Great power and massive wealth will always attract the most corrupt with the greatest ability to take advantage of great power to steal massive wealth, such as George Soros. Such people are truly evil and heartless. They will kill anyone who gets in their way. And they will always strive for greater power and greater wealth. They know the biggest government possible would be a one world government, the New World Order. It would have the greatest power possible with access to the most massive wealth of all, the wealth of the entire world. The New World Order will have the most corrupt oppressive government in the history of the world. There's not much time to stop it, if it's not too late already. God, help us all.

  2. Personally I don't care what kind of bulbs I use, BUT, I don't like Gov't dictating nickel & dime things to me, and I DON'T LIKE MERCURY IN BULBS!

    This is much WORSE than MOST AMERICANS even understand! First off, over 70% of americans are made up of women("intellectualizers") and blacks, both of which are also "GATHERER'S," who just love to be given things from the RICH! Welcome to Adam's world. Just saying…

  5. Not seeing a problem since one can still buy halogen bulbs (whiter light, twice the life).

    I'll stick with LEDs and save on air conditioning bills, thanks.

    Here's a bonus tip for those of you in areas prone to power outages.

    Use a LED (or CFL) in one of your frequently-used table lamps.

    Plug it into an inexpensive UPS and you'll have hours of 'normal' light even if the power fails.

  6. I am a woman and I think that the governments attempts to micro manage our lives and take away individual freedoms is outrageous! The video will be played out in real life if something is not done.

  7. Charles A. Russell says:

    If people would turn to God and give Him their lives He can do wonders with it and you would be totally happy with yourself. As this New World Order is wont happen until the Church is raptured out and the Holy Spirit goes with us then those that are left behind will go through the worst kind of hell on earth and that is the New World Order. Only believe and get saved then you and others will not even see what goes on here on earth. This I guarantee is all in the Good Book the Holy Bible in Revelation of Jesus Christ. Please spread this word from God and live in peace. Please read the entire book and believe.

  8. There are a few things that need to be abolished in our government and DHS heads the list. Organized after 9/11 with the original intent of keeping America safe from foreign attacks, it has quickly mushroomed into a cancerous growth. The original intent was a clearing house for intellegence agencies to coordinate their information. DHS now feels it has the right to dictate every aspect of our lives. They have used their position to define who a Terrorist is: retired military, Tea Party members, and anyone else they precieve as a threat to their authority. TSA does not insure our safety unless you consider Americans, the elderly, and children as threats. We have allowed our freedom to be compromised out of fear. Do we forgo freedom for safety?

  9. Victor Barney says:

    I speak only of averages, not specifics. Thus, what I say is spot on! Just saying…

  10. Add EPA to your list.

  11. And most all other government agencies…….

  12. It is interesting to me that a government that insisted on taking thermometers with mercury OFF the market 30 years or so ago now FORCES mercury BACK into our homes in the form of light bulbs. Is one of Obama's buddies into mercury mining? Is mercury now OK with environmentalists? Did mercury suddenly become non-toxic? WOW, what a revelation!

  13. Hey Bill,

    Plug yourself in.


  14. With all due respect, dispensational-sensationalism was disproven by its own claims in 1988, when the 40 year anniversary of the re-formation of national Israel came & went without the so-called "rapture" happening. People still making millions selling that worn-out formula make great bold predictions, predictions fail, they wait a few years & change a few players, change the dates, & write new books yet again – but folks don't check their track record! Just read Hal Lindsey's predictions prior to 1988 for yourself, e.g., Late Great Planet Earth, 1980's: Countdown to Armageddon. His predictions were wrong. According to the Bible (Deuteronomy 18:22) a "prophet" he presumes to speak in the Name of the Lord & his prediction fails to materialize is a FALSE PROPHET – the Church has a responsibility to judge who it listens to, & is commanded NOT TO LISTEN TO PROVEN FALSE PROPHETS any more. Please consider other views of eschatology. Thousands, probably millions of Christians have had to suffer at the hands of tyrants throughout the ages. We are woefully naive if we assume that the Lord is going to just whisk us away from the tyranny developing in America just because it's us!

  15. muslims are Pigs says:

    This federal government is a P.O.S

  16. John Doe says:

    Department of (mis)education

  17. JulesV29 says:

    The only spot on about that is that you are a moron. Where do you get your ideas? I am a woman and I do not love to be "given things" by rich people or anyone else. I am an American and I prefer to work and succeed rather than being given anything. By generalizing the way you did all that happened is you looked like an idiot!!!

  18. JulesV29 says:

    That is good advice Bill, and there is no mercury in the bulb should it break–its all solid state.

  19. JulesV29 says:

    All the alphabet organizations…DOE (Dept of Ed AND Dept of Energy), IRS, EPA, FDA, TSA….etc, etc. Also, all the Czars.

  21. toosmarttovoteGOP says:

    The Bible is clear in saying that it will be a complete surprise. Anyone saying otherwise is a false prophet and anyone who believes them does so at their own peril.

  22. toosmarttovoteGOP says:

    I just love how it's Obama's fault that THE SHRUB IS THE ONE WHO SIGNED THE BILL INTO LAW!

  23. And worse is that no one else has said that CFLs DO NOT work with triacs & can not work with dimmers, or motion sensors & even some timers. Diodes are cheaper , work very well with incandescent bulbs & will make them last 8 times as long.

  24. jim28threg. says:

    David I'm afraid you're an IDIOT !

  25. jim28threg. says:

    G E is moving it's incandesent facilitys to China and that's why we are being stuck wth these poluting mercury pieces of crap. I just wonder who owns those mercury mines I used to pass. China won't allow the new bulbs in the country so the G E big boys figured it would pay them off with an old plant and pay for the research by paying off congress. What the heck they're all whorse anyway. They already have their own stock.

  26. well i know where im going when i die..to heaven,because i accepted jesus christ as my saviour and put my total faith in him..thank you jesus,so much for dying on the cross for our sins..and if more people would come to him the bible says he can prolong the end..all you people who think we are crackpots for our faith,i would not want to be you on judgement day..think about it all eternity forever and EVER,no end ever of torment and absence of gods love,,accept jesus before its to late..what does this have to do with this discussion?? im just saying IM NOT AFRAID OF THE NWO,TSA,,DHS,POLICE STATE,ETC ETC,so you people can just argue all day about loosing your freedoms,but not one of you will do anything but cower in fear..me ill die unafraid with my boots on and barrell smoking

  27. Scott Todd says:

    The pre-trib rapture teaching has caused terrific and unnecessary suffering amongst Christians for decades. Just one example- In China at the start of the cultural revolution, those who believed in a post-trib rapture prepared themselves, while those who believed in pre-trib didn't and largely got slaughtered or else turned away thinking the rest of the Bible was a lie. Even IF the rapture is pre-trib, there could be a whole lot of tribulation ahead of and entirely apart from The Great Tribulation, a point dispensationalists have missed entirely.

  28. Scott Todd says:

    BZZT!- CFLs are made mostly in China.

  29. Scott Todd says:

    Actually incandescent bulbs are still being manufactured in the US, just don't remember the link offhand. There is a loophole allowing rough service bulbs to still be made in the usual wattages. If you don't like CFLs, there's always the new halogen bulbs. Seen a 27W that gives as much light and better quality light (whiter) than an old 40W standard one.

  30. Well said. And right on target. I hope we can get this bunch of outlaws out of Washington before its too late. Hopefully, it isn't already too late.

  31. JayMarie says:

    Did you forget who controlled Congress? Hmmmm. I'll bet that shrew Pelosi and dumba$$ Reid were in full control when the bill passed. Any bets deals were made?

  32. Typical. The Constitution forbids all this, but the Constitution only works in an environment of "good faith." The Democratic Party is all for anything that it can get away with. As for everything else, "Let them sue."

    The Democrats have hit the American people with so many deliberate violations of the Constitution, there isn't enough money to pay for all the lawsuits necessary to challenge them all. This is a situation of bad faith.

    The Democrats are now in the same classification as the American Nazi Party, and the American Communist Party. Any politician who shows bad faith and no intention of even TRYING to abide by the Constitution should be booted out of office this fall — that is, if the Unconstitutionality he has already gotten away with doesn't include declaring martial law to suspend elections.

  33. Stocked up on bulbs from 40 to 100 watt, we have app.1200. Should be plenty.

  34. SumerianMan says:

    APPROVE WHAT!!!!!!!!!! What modoric idiots!

  35. We can no longer use plastic bags in San Jose.

    Plastic bags are banned.

  36. @Mary,
    I feel for you living in the People's Republic of California. With all the real problems your state faces, your local and state governments keep passing bills such as banning plastic bags. The list goes on.
    This ad is almost too true to be funny. The federal gov't is trying to reach into every phase of our lives and we are so far from the limited government and free market but most importantly belief in God and natural law that I wonder if this country can be restored.

  37. My halogen desk lamp puts out a LOT of heat. I'm hoping that we elect a president and congress with COMMON SENSE that will repeal the stupidity that has taken place over the past 30 years.
