Dear Friends,

Here are a few articles for your consideration.

This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles. 

The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.

O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. (Psalm 34:6-8)

“URBAN OFFICIALS DREAM OF A FUTURE OF SMART CITIES THAT USE TECHNOLOGY TO GATHER COMPREHENSIVE DATA AND ALGORITHMS TO ACHIEVE INCREASED EFFICIENCY, SUSTAINABILITY, AND SAFETY.”Kootenai’s “Metropolitan Planning Organization”KMPO is a Federally funded and controlled Planning agency that oversees all federal money sent to Kootenai County for highway construction. MPOs impose Federal priorities on regional transportation agencies as a condition of receiving funds. Federal mandates for ALL metropolitan areas in the United States include densification and “Smart Growth”, prioritizing “non-motorized transportation” and public transit over private vehicle usage, universal surveillance and data collection, and laying the groundwork for a fully automated ITS (Intelligent Transport System).KMPO Votes on a TMC This SummerKMPO is now planning to develop a Federally Funded Traffic Management Center (TMC) that would process data from hundreds of traffic cameras installed all over North Idaho. KMPO claims that a TMC would “help traffic flow”, but traffic analysis, driver notification, and suggestions of alternative routes is already provided by Google Maps. A TMC and more traffic cameras would provide no meaningful benefits to North Idaho residents.The real purpose of KMPO’s TMC is to facilitate the future implementation of fully automated 24/7 surveillance, facial recognition, self-driving cars, enforcement of traffic violations, and ultimately, the imposition of “15 minute cities” and restricted travel.There many things that can be done to help stop the implementation of 24/7 surveillance, and intrusive, controlling “Intelligent Transportation Systems” in Kootenai County.The bad news is, much of the technology is already in place, and every single federally funded road that is built in Kootenai county will be built with embedded “Smart” surveillance technology. The good news is, that community leaders who are committed to protecting Kootenai citizens can stand up to Globalists and refuse further encroachments. But STOPPING SMART CITIES means REFUSING FEDERAL MONEY. That can be difficult, especially without active public support. Here is what you can do to oppose intrusive Surveillance Technology and Smart Cities:The KMPO VOTE on TMC is expected to be in Late Summer or Early Fall. The KMPO Policy Board meets the second Thursday of each month at the Post Falls City Council Chambers, 408 N. Spokane Street, at 1:30 p.m. Meetings are open to the public.Kootenai MPO Board of Directors—2023CONTACT YOUR KMPO REPRESENTATIVESTELL THEM TO VOTE NO ON A TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT CENTERDan Gookin, City of Coeur d’Alene
