The completion of the Dallas-Fort Worth Regional Transportation Study and the results of a CALTRANS (California Transportation) study project, stirred transportation oriented groups into action. Technology for transportation systems was a central theme in this organizing effort for what was billed as transportation for the 21st Century. In 1988, the Transportation Research Board released a report titled, Project 2020 that was a long-range projection concerning the nation’s transportation needs.
In March of 1990, Transportation Secretary Samuel Skinner and President George H.W. Bush announced a new transportation policy for the U.S. and they released a report about it titled Moving America: New Directions, New Opportunities. The announcement outlined a new national-international transportation policy that was about adding technology and shifting responsibility from the federal government to the states and localities – allowing the states to turn Interstates into toll roads.
This video has excerpts from the press conference. Note: C-Span fixed the video so the original clip I had was replaced with a new one 1/9/23. Following the announcement, Transportation Secretary Sam Skinner held a press conference to answer questions from reporters.
On December 18, 1991, H.R. 2950, the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991 was signed by George H.W. Bush. This legislation was sponsored by Norm Mineta.
Legislation for Networked Communications Systems
On December 12, 1991, S.272, the High Performance Computing and Communications Act of 1991 was signed by George H.W. Bush. This legislation was sponsored by Al Gore.
MOBILITY: THE FIFTH FREEDOM
This video would have been produced sometime around 1990 because it mentions legislation in Congress that would have been the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act (ISTEA) of 1991. It isn’t stated, but is implied by the program plan that the High Performance Computing Act of 1991 was an essential element to the paradigm shift in transportation systems.
Lyle Saxton of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) was instrumental in officially recognizing a private sector group that became the public-private steering committee for Intelligent Vehicle Highway Systems. The name of group was originally, the Intelligent Vehicle Highway Society of America (IVHS America). It was comprised of the leadership of the Highway Users Federation and the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials. The ISTEA of 1991 legislation provided funding and authorization for the organization – IVHS of America to be a Federal Advisory Committee within the U.S. Department of Transportation. In other words, lobbyists for the transportation system were embedded in and partnered with government.
The first task of the IVHS of America was to produce a strategic plan for ITS (Intelligent Transportation Systems). That report set a strategic national framework for the development of intelligent transportation systems. Later, the Society produced the ITS Program Plan “to identify critical interfaces to achieve interoperability at the regional, state and national levels.
DOT asked IVHS AMERICA to draw on its membership to develop a Strategic Plan for IVHS in the United States and set it in an international context. The document to the left is that Strategic Plan. It was written by the Strategic Planning Subcommittee of IVHS AMERICA, it can fairly be called a consensus of the IVHS community in the U.S. Pg 28
“IVHS is, in fact, a paradigm shift. The transportation/information infrastructure is a new way of looking at, thinking about, and improving mobility – a sociological as well as a technological revolution. The shift is ongoing in air and rail transportation. That paradigm shift is needed in highway and public transportation as well”. Pg 31
This private sector special interest group that was embedded within our government was essentially given carte blanch to redesign America’s transportation and border infrastructure for the purpose of building world’s first fully automated, advanced technology highways and facilities, managed by information and control systems.
Another way to look at it is that this private sector group was given carte blance to design the quintessential police state for surveillance, tracking and control of movement in the United States.
Vice President Gore has identified broad initiatives that together will restore America’s technological leadership and reinvigorate our economy. The Vice President’s technology initiative emphasizes that investing in infrastructure means more than building and repairing bridges, harbors, and highways. Today the United States faces a new series of communications, transportation, and environmental needs for the 21st century. Pg. 2
The Program Plan called for the DOT to build a nationwide IVHS system architecture that will provide a framework for deployment of a nationally compatible system and stimulate development of products… The IVHS architecture will describe how IVHS subsystems interact and communicate with each other, what information is shared among subsystems and how the provision of user services are integrated. The system architecture will accommodate the needs of the public and private sectors as well as state and local transportation agencies, while supporting congestion relief, improved public safety, environmental improvements, more effective intermodal transportation, and the provision of a cost effective mix of services. Page 15
The development process for a nationwide IVHS architecture is underway… In Phase I. four architecture contractor teams are conducting parallel efforts to define an initial, open nationwide IVHS architecture. The four teams are led by Rockwell International Corporation, Westinghouse Electric Corporation, Hughes Aircraft Company, and Loral/IBM. Alternatives developed by these teams will be evaluated against a set of criteria that reflect technical. nontechnical, and cost considerations. This phase began on September 15, 1993, and is scheduled for completion in December 1994.
As part of the broad based architecture development effort, FHWA has also contracted with Johns Hopkins University’s Applied Physics Laboratory to define a national commercial vehicle system design. In addition, FTA has commissioned the Sandia National Laboratory in Albuquerque, New Mexico, to define the information flows between the central dispatcher, transit vehicles, computers and other electronic components, and the users. Both efforts will feed directly into the national system architecture development process. Page 15
The JPO was a coordinating entity for programs of the Intelligent Transportation Systems. Their mission was to “manage all Federal-level ITS activities and coordinate the many Federal agencies with a stake in ITS.
Selling our children's future...
The plan for the Intelligent Vehicle Highway System was in effect, a plan to destroy America. They traded the future of American children and their freedom for a road and an open air prison – panopticon. Just look at the logic of it… selling off our infrastructure to pay for high priced technology to run it. Bankrupting our country for the profit of the technology corporations and for our own imprisonment.
Absolutely. I do believe strongly that the Cash for Clunkers scheme, or scam, rather, was to get rid of all of the non-computerized cars off of the road and ensure most vehicles being driven are the newer/easily tracked ones. Vicky people don’t know about these Transportation plan and they don’t care about it because its boring to them. They plan these projects decades in advance as they take lots of planning the infrastructure but it also happens so slowly people won’t notice. HIPPA was the same thing by putting everyone’s records in electronic format so they could be accessed by anyone electronically. OK now look at digital money, if we were told in 1970s that now we will only use digital money everyone would go nuts. But look how its implemented – “convenience” “online checking” and debit cards, the convenience of Amazon and eBay, you can’t use cash there. Also now we have to report all transactions over 600 dollars at any place, even pawn shops, used car lots and so on. This would never have been tolerated just a few years ago. They gave the poor free smartphones “Obama phones” this was I believe another tracking plan to keep tabs on everyone. Another thing that irks me is people act so surprised and are mystified by all this thinking Oh its just the times we live in. Well, if they simply go over to the United Nations web site and read all of their proposals and ideas the whole thing is right there.
Cities are a rat race. The people with their credit cards are the rats. The pied piper of Hamelin authorities are sucking them all in. They go willingly like Weena in H G Wells’ ‘War of the Worlds’ when the air raid sirens sound, to their slaughter by the Morlocks.
There is nothing more convenient than cash. Fear is the inconvenience – of losing it, or theft.
And yes Kristin, I think it all can be found within the sinister outcomes, planned for us all, by the UN which has authority above all nations Rev 13:7, which all national governments seem willing to remain inferior to. That makes them puppet governments subject to the UN. They (the national leaders and kings) are called SHADES in Isaiah 14:9 RSV, in the shadow of a superior world government that exists in the background. If that is the UN dictating world overlordship for the nations, then who is its unknown Superior. Frank Tupper Saussy answers this in ‘Rulers of Evil’. (Available online).
The symptoms are being laid bare, but we have to address the cause, not just the symptoms.
This shadow government existing under the realm of an unknown Superior, behind the veneer of the supposedly secular U. N. is also called ‘deep state’.
Has anybody asked “deep where?” I think I know the answer to that one too but it can’t be said in polite company 🙂
I know what the cause is… delusional philosophy that the world can be one big happy global village. It will never happen because there are traditions and aspects of other societies that I find intolerably repugnant and I’m sure that everybody regardless of what society they come from has the same feelings. They can’t force a foreign culture down people’s throats. Culture develops over time and is a heritage for the young of the society. If that culture is defeated, the people are defeated and that breeds resentment and hatred that doesn’t go away. It festers.
The lie ‘Stronger Together’ is in truth ‘Weaker Mixed’.
Daniel 2:43 RSV.
I agree strongly with you Vicky. Iron does not mix with clay. Birds of a feather belong together, and should flock together
I agree Peter. It eventually shakes out that way and can’t be any other way. If there are no compatible birds to flock with, the bird becomes a loner because the alternative is impossible.
The alternative is EXTINCTION. At the end of the 2nd World War Australia’s population was 8 million almost completely Anglo-Saxon.
Population is now 24 million, of which only 20% are Anglo-Saxon. There are now 4.8 million Anglo-Saxons in Australia and dwindling.
The species is endangered. Nobody cares. What is the situation with Amglo-Americans?
I get it. If persons cannot afford a device that enables the establishment to keep an eye on them, then the systemic establishment will give it to them, so that the system can keep an eye on them, whether they realize it or not. That is why I always say, Never take the ‘carrot’. It is poison like 1080.
Yes, I have an ipad ‘carrot’. but that was my choice. I use it to keep an eye on the establishment. What I see is MORE INTERESTING than what they see.
I see interesting things about them on ALTERNATIVE MEDIA.
MR ESTABLISHMENT, Please don’t come and take away my 1080 POISONOUS VIEW about you.
That’s why computers and technology are so cheap. When you consider the value they have in terms of surveillance, research on society and ultimately for control, the subsidy is more than offset.
What about the 30,000 guillotines I read are set up in America (USA). Is it because they were cheap, or because their high expense was worth it – and most importantly what are they there for? To chop wood?
I am asking a gutsy person like yourself to answer that forthrightly if you can. You are a capable researcher.
Do you think heads will roll if anyone as much as looks sideways at the NWO with a sneer of contempt. Trump won’t be there forever.
They may be there to create 30,000 vacancies for much needed full time jobs as chief executioner for refugees and illegal immigrants on good pay.
Maybe even stimulate the economy that little bit as recompense for the lost population base.
Then there is possibly the Motdecai solution which turns the tables on the establishment intentions, and the establishment loses its collective head instead. John Lennon said, “Life is what happens to you, when you’re busy making other plans”.
This applies to the establishment also. One can only hope. You can read about Mordecai in the book of Esther, short book in the Bible. ‘Unhinged’, I know.
Better than having loose screws.
It all started with the horse and cart back when life was simple. A bit of effort to harness the horse and hitch the cart and off to get supplies at the nearby town. It was cheap. The horse ate grass from the paddock. Cost zilch. Flat roads.
Then came the car. The cart or carriage became the car. The horse became the horsepower of the motor of the car. The horses heels became the wheels that could be punctured when bitten. The car became the horseless carriage. Locomotives were an iron horse.
It took fifteen minutes to half an hour to get down to the general store in the nearby town. The horse was sluggish with an empty load. Turning for home was different even with the load. The horse needed restraint.
With the advent of the motor car, the horseless carriage, it became easier but more expensive to get to town. Petrol (gasoline) was necessary and had to be paid for as it could not be grazed.
This was some horseless carriage. It got to town more quickly with less preparation. Simply check the oil and water and tyre pressures where necessary. It ate and drank nothing when not in use. Though the fuel and maintenance for the horse was free, it needed regular sustenance at all times even when not in use for transport. The car exchanged the bother of feeding and watering and changing paddocks for simplicity that came with a cost.
Times sped up. It took less time to get to the nearby town. So the trip was extended. The nearby town no longer supplied the required goods. The horseless carriage soaked up the time saved, now the horse was obsolete, by travelling further to take up the same time the horse formerly took up over the shorter distance. Nothing was gained. Costs escalated for fuel. The car could not brilliantly replace itself like the horse. Another BIG cost.
Then speed restrictions were imposed enabling law enforcement to dabble in a little legalised highway robbery. Back in Wells Fargo days and Cobb and Co. Days in Australia, it was called highway robbery. It was illegal then, staged by bandits, nothing to do with speed. Now it became respectable, staged by the Irish long arm of the law, hiding behind bushes and later employing radar for an offense called speed, usually hidden behind bushes, just around a bend going steeply downhill. It was a good revenue raiser and placed the more zealous Irish police in line for early promotion.
If a driver sped off from a radar pullover, for example not being the owner of the car as registered, the police could radio ahead and have spikes raised out of the highway to puncture the wheels which replaced the horse’s heels, to disable the vehicle.
The rider of the horse in former times now became the driver of the car. A man arrested for a serious enough offense was taken away to spend the night behind bars, in a Paddy wagon. The Paddy wagon was so named because it was a Patrick wagon. Patrick because, the long arm of the law in America whether judges, solicitors or police, was overwhelmingly Irish. So much so that an unknown cop was called an Irish flatfoot. A flatfoot being a cop.
The Irish, and therefore Catholic presence in the law, was so recognised that Walt Disney knew that Mickey Mouse’s Police Chief Sergeant O’Hara, had to have an Irish name, for that was how things were in America and Australia and New Zealand and Canada and England and last but not least Ireland.
Perhaps more Irish are called Danny even than Patrick. Their most recognized folk song is ‘O Danny Boy’. This is not surprising because DAN means judge in Hebrew, and the Danites are the law tribe. This is not of their doing, they do not even know it. It was prophesied in the bible that: “Dan shall judge his people Israel as one of the tribes of Israel . . . . . I shall have to await my salvation O LORD.” (That’s because of his religion.). Genesis 49:16,18 Revelation 7:4-8 Tribe of Dan noticeably missing from this list of Israelite tribes – the judge tribe.
Now I have not veered off the subject. I am merely supplying some spicey information to do with highways and motoring. The series of dots where a verse is left out just above is Genesis 49:16 which very very interestingly says in riddle fashion: – ‘Dan shall be a serpent in the way, a viper by the path, that bites the horse’s heels so that his rider falls backward.’
The horse is the engine with horsepower. The ‘way’ is the highway that twists and writhes ahead. The ‘path’ is the place from where ambush or radar trap takes place. The ‘rider’ is the driver’. The ‘serpent’ is the Irish tribe of Dan meaning ‘judge’. The ‘heels’ are the pneumatic tyres on wheels. The viper is the operator of the radar trap that bites with the venom of a fine, or the wheels punctured with stakes. The ‘rider’ taken aback with the fine, falls backward being financially penalized by way of legalised highway robbery.
That has all been replaced by speed cameras with one eye.
The cities have become a nightmare. Cities are a curse. Deuteronomy 28:16. The only solution is small town living where parking is always available and free. I have followed this course. No progress has been made since abandoning the horse and buggy days. But those days can never be retrieved. Oblivion awaits as many shall run to and fro’.
If you think what I’m writing about is modes of transportation, you’re missing the point. I’m writing about Information Systems and Technology embedded into our infrastructure to record, track, surveil, allow, disallow movement. These integrated transportation systems will be the end of freedom of movement.
And Kristin, I don’t care if people find this information boring. I don’t think they’ll find it boring when they learn their progeny will be imprisoned in an electronic control grid such that they won’t be able to scratch their ass without it being recorded. I have to cover the preliminaries because it’s important to me to prove – step by step what happened, who did it and what it will mean.
Vicky I AGREE with you- What I meant by people finding it boring was that it is too bad that they do find it boring. People, regular every day TV watching/McDonalds-eating people are not lured into watching and reading the nuts and bolts. They look for the results, not the cause (or, they only SEE the results and not the cause). I do not write well, thus leaving a wrong impression. Our public school students are programmed by this fifth column’s careful planning to ensure we do not ask too many questions, and that conspiracy theorists are “nut jobs”. As individuals we need start thinking for ourselves and not look for confirmation from outside sources whether our ideas are acceptable or not. THANK YOU Vicky, you have taken the things we NEED to be looking at. You don’t just display the plans they have, but you decipher it into plain English- you really do it all. You have changed my life, or how I look at it. I knew something was going on, but I could not put my finger on it. A lot of people have this complaint, sometimes they find the wrong answers in the wrong places, some people are hip to warning signs but they are personally rather “unhinged” and look for answers in pseudo-religious mumbo jumbo. But, not at all do I consider your writing “boring” in fact I find it fascinating! I get lost in a Mr Toad’s Wild Ride on your old site often, many times losing hours, days in reading reading and more reading. A person would benefit from downloading your writing to a hard drive in case one day it is lost. Blessings to you Vicky Thank you- your stuff IS being read, I know, a lot of people read but will never comment or acknowledge it.
Yes Kristin. Vicky shouldn’t put you in the same reply box as me. However, I do like you both.
Kristin I sounded snippy. I didn’t mean to. Sometimes I’m just in a hurry and type out a quick response and move on. I’m used to people telling me that the things I write about are too arcane and boring for most people. And it’s true. When I was living with family, the whines I heard when I tried to watch a congressional hearing on C-Span were deafening and I know very few people who would read transportation legislation. In fact, when I was reading the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991, I questioned by own sanity. I thought to myself, who does this? Who actually reads legislation? The answer… Me. I do. LOL.
Yes Vicky, I fully realize what you say. I was adding another aspect to it all. In Australia, on the Newell Highway they place point to point cameras 110 kilometres apart where the speed limit is 110 K per hour. Pity help the truckie who gets to the next point before the hour expires. Truckies have to keep log books and if they spell the name of a town wrong they are fined heavily. Most towns have aboriginal names difficult to spell with many syllables. Truckies simply take their enforced break to wash up the time.
Licenses require a photograph as usual. The difference is no smiling aloud. The licensee must be plain faced. A light source places contour lines along the features that profile your face. People place their tongue in their cheek, blow their cheeks out, or grow a beard prior, to disrupt the obvious intention. This is required every five years in Queensland. But it would be going on everywhere. We know the walls are closing in on us from every direction till we are crushed
But authorities are not going to provide an explanation. And it would be dressed up to look like some plausible reason if it did. But George Orwell’s predictions are alive and well.
There is nothing we can do about it, except as an individual to disrupt the obvious intentions. I will cut it off there because the subject is too enormous. But even George Orwell advised plain speaking in simplest terms is. best. The documentation you provide is hardly this.
There are people oblivious as to what is going on. They do not feel the walls are closing in on them. Unfortunately they are not like to visit thetechnocratictyranny, and if they did they would not know what it is all about. You can’t shake these people out of their slumber.
They would look at you glassy eyed.
Thanks for all you do.
The standards are the same here. They are international standards. There will be no freedom anywhere – no where to escape. Thank god I’m old and will die soon because I really don’t want to see what’s coming.
Please Vicky? Don’t die. But while time remains, free speech must be utilised as a warning.
Peter – RE: The alternative is EXTINCTION.
There is going to be extinction anyway. The decline in the pale face population is because there has been a war on the pale face and western culture. We didn’t realize it because the leaders of our countries sold us out and their own future generations at the same time.
RE: What about the 30,000 guillotines I read are set up in America (USA).
I read the stories about the guillotines about 8 years ago? I think they were fake stories to scare people. If the government – any government federal, state or local were to use those devices, I am absolutely certain that there would be a total breakdown of society, the guns would come out and the U.S. would become a killing field. This country would never go for that kind of execution. It’s too disgusting, unclean and uncivilized.
The story I got was that execution by the electric chair ruined body organs that could have otherwise been recycled (they call it donated) for profit. The guillotine preserves these body organs from damage. So they got the guillotines. Now all they need are the organs.
Who will start the ball rolling? A medical for profit issue does seem credible. Over the past eight years the story has died down though. So has anybody out there witnessed them?
I do not think the 6 billion rounds of ammunition purchased (20 shots per person) was any fairy tale though, or even for target practise. It is almost a bullet for every person on the planet, with an accurate shot.
I don’t think this country would got for beheading people no matter the reason. It’s barbaric. And as far as the ammunition goes… there are a hell of a lot more of us with guns than there are government thugs – and not all government employees are thugs. Some of them still remember that they are Americans and that they would be making war against their own.
I’m not in the least worried about guillotines. I’m more concerned about biomass plants for electricity generation. Humans are a renewable resource.
You’re bogged down in the problem, with no way out. I’m chasing down the only solution.
AND YOU THINK I’M ‘UNHINGED’?
You’ve got to be part of the solution, not stuck on the problem.
Samuel Morse warned America back in the 1830’s of how America was going to destroy itself if his advice was not heeded. Charles Chiniquy and Abraham Lincoln likewise in their Quotes. All these warnings are available online including Frank Tupper Saussy who spent ten years researching old library material from all over America – as a fugitive from the law. When finally caught up with and jailed for18 -24 months, he had all the time he needed to collate the results of his research into his book ‘Rulers of Evil’.
Saussy had found that the warnings of the 1830’s and 1860’s went unheeded. Actually, it was already too late as America, the USA, was already a fascist regime. Americans are too dopey to see how dormant Roman Fascism is hatching. You call it communism or cultural Marxism. These tems are a cloak to keep Roman Fascism under wraps and keep you guessing. You yourself see that old people are secreted away into gated retirement villages to keep their wisdom from the young, to keep the snowflake and gullible young ignorant of being on their guard and what to watch out for. Try gleaning that vintage knowledge and wisdom yourself
Go back further to the 1830’s books of warning to America, and find out where you are at. Then maybe ponder what they saw as the solution. Then you will have something to come to grips with.
America is unhinged with the hidden and disguised problem. Only the solution can rehinge America. See the symptoms and accurately diagnose the cause from the past ‘medical’ history record. It’s all there for those with eyes to see beyond the problem to the solution.
