EPA using Drones to Spy on American Farmers

EPA Spy DroneThe U.S. Government’s Green Police Force, the one we told you about a couple of months ago, is now actively spying on American farmers in what I believe is an attempt to regulate them out of business.

News broke after Nebraskan law makers sent a letter to the EPA demanding that they stop using surveillance drones to spy on Nebraskan Farmers. Apparently, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is now using drones to spy on Farmers. For years these same drones have been used by the U.S. military to track down terrorists overseas, now it looks like the U.S. government has turned these drones on the American Public, specifically farms.

So what exactly is the EPA looking for?

According to the EPA they are looking for violators of the Clean Water Act, and according to them it’s perfectly legal.

That may come as a shock to most Americans who still believe in the Constitution of the United States and our 4th Amendment right that protects us from illegal search and seizure. But remember this is the same EPA who went after the Sackket familiy and illegally seized their land under these same water acts.

It’s also the same EPA who was filmed earlier this year admitting that they use fear tactics to scare the public into obeying the law. In fact, one administrator went even further with his tactics when told his staff their job was to crucify law breakers in the same way as the Romans. He was caught on camera saying:

“The Romans used to conquer little villages in the Mediterranean. They’d go into a little Turkish town somewhere, they’d find the first five guys they saw and they would crucify them. And then you know that town was really easy to manage for the next few years.”

Mainstream Media on the Attack

After news of the surveillance drone program broke, the governments attack dogs (the mainstream media) immediately sprang to action. No, they didn’t try to get to the bottom of what was going on; instead they attacked the messenger.

They feverishly attempted to cover the story up by denying that these drones even existed. In fact, they set out on a smear campaign where they attacked Internet Radio Host, Alex Jones and claimed that he made up the story.

But wait, didn’t the EPA admit to using these drones?

While the government and the mainstream media would like to cover this story up, it seems the EPA may have already let the cat out of the bag. In an official response to the lawmakers letter, the EPA admitted to using these drones.

The letter, which can be seen in full here, said:

The EPA’s governing statutes provide authority for the agency to conduct investigations, inspect facilities, request information, perform monitoring and take other actions necessary to ensure that our nation’s environment is protected from unlawful pollution.

They go on to say:

Aerial over flights are only one of many tools that are used as part of the compliance assurance process to identify discharging sources that may impact water quality. Over-flights and other sources may provide information regarding the general condition of a farm such as size, storm water management features, manure management systems and proximity to waterways.

So we can speculate as to why these surveillance drone flights are happening, but what is no longer in question is that fact that they are happening. The federal government is using surveillance drones on American farmers, now the only question is why?

    Not that I’m a fan of big brother poking his nose where it may or may not belong… I did not see anywhere in that letter that said anything regarding admission to UAV usage. There were several mentions about “aerial over-flights”… Perhaps it doesn’t matter… I have always associated “drone” with “un-manned”.

    • Tim says:

      I disagree. I read the letter and it’s clearly in response to the letter they sent about the drones. The letter was about the drones, if there was no drone program they would have responded with a letter that stated there was no drone program.

      • Jay says:

        You’re inferring their response. All media sources who originated this story have redacted the statement saying that the EPA uses manned arial flights for this surveillance and that the original farmers that had issues with the flights never said anything about drones. The media ran with the drone idea, but I’m not sure why the difference is an issue. Either one is surveillance.

          You need not feel guilty downing an unmanned drone.

    Now you have us EPA’ers pissed off! We will now be arming our fleet of drones with anti-stupid missiles to blanket the entire mid-west as a last resort to end this nonsense!!

    • Mike says:

      Careful with those anti-stupid missiles, they might turn around on you. Of course they would also eliminate about 50% of the world’s population including 75% or more of the politicians and lawyers. You know what, forget I said anything, you launch those missiles so that the rest of us can live happy and free again.

    • Joe Patriot says:

      The drones should be grounded and if not shot down, they are a blatant violation of the 4th Ammendment and illegal search in particular, the siezure is then conducted of property owners money. Besides Anti stupidity missiles would turn right around and aim for Congress, so I hope no one ever builds them.

    Most Nebraskan farmers are also hunters. I work for the goobermint (hangs head in shame) not on, but near one of their main UAV sites… most of them are nothing more than glorified RC airplanes, fly VERY low and slow… probably be easier than hitting a duck. ;)

    “The federal government is using surveillance drones on American farmers, now the only question is why?”

    the answer is: “to ensure that our nation’s environment is protected from unlawful pollution”–in other words to protect US

    the epa isn’t after US . . . Are WE knowingly destroying the land we live off of?

    no

    Are WE unable (or unwilling) to manage our land sustainably?

    no

    So who is it the epa is after?

    i dont think its us

    I don’t approve of the government spying on us just because they “think” we are some sort of environmental menace. If the EPA wanted to do something useful, then maybe they should go after some of the rogues in the plastics industry that manufacture products that release deadly poisons when they are burned. ( I’m not condoning burning plastic, mind you, but think of the poor fire victims that are exposed to this stuff during a minor house fire or other accidental indoor fire.)

Tell us what you're thinking...
