Posted on 01/23/2006 8:16:52 AM PST by Calpernia
Before Bill Clinton left office, he authorized 2001 an 84% increase in the government's investment in nanotechnology research and development, National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) and made it a top priority.
What has not been publicly realized is the meaning of this initiative and the various components that are encompassed.
This governmental increase has been combined with non-governemental organizations and grant programs. These NGOs have been creating partnerships with existing governmental agencies and masking initiatives as Federal and State grant reward programs. They are not.
Here, at the CDC is an overview of what is called, Healthy People 2010. As you can see from this link, the initiative is driven with 28 different categories. All of these categories have grant award programs that are awarding monies through various agencies to promote 'a healthy intiative program'. Some of the programs alone, sound harmless. When they are tied together though, they are disturbing.
Former (EX!) President Clinton's budget for his NATIONAL NANOTECHNOLOGY INITIATIVE is fueled by funding from the National Nanotechnology Initiative, National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Energy and the Department of Defense in combination with private and nonprofit funds from non-governmental organizations.
These funds now make available monies for grant projects for:

When an association, state, or company applies for the grants to fund these initiatives, in turn they authorize a Freedom of Information Release to all their data. This is a sample of the data collected from a grant application. All the data requirements are the same, the only difference is the partnered agency that is acting as a liaison for relaying the data. Example, this one below is using the USDA as the partnered liaison. If this was a hospital application, it would say the CDC.

What the schools, states, associations, and hospitals are doing, when they take the grant money, they are turning over the data, your data.
Example, under initiative 10. Food Safety, The National Animal Identification System (NAIS) is being mandated to livestock producers.
About the NAIS:
Foodborne diseases have declined significantly, said the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention April 29. In its annual report on the incidence of infections from foodborne pathogens, CDC noted significant declines from 1996 to 2003 in illnesses caused by E. coli O157:H7 (42 percent), Salmonella (17 percent), Campylobacter (28 percent) and Yersinia (49 percent). Illnesses caused by Salmonella Typhimurium (typically associated with meat and poultry) decreased by 38 percent. Most significantly, between 2002 and 2003, illnesses caused by E. coli O157:H7, typically associated with ground beef, dropped by 36 percent. The reduction in E. coli O157:H7 illnesses brings the United States very close to achieving the Healthy People 2010goal of 1.0 case per 100,000 people. The data, while inclusive of all foods, generally tracks the trends revealed through random regulatory testing of meat, poultry and egg products by the Food Safety and Inspection Service. In addition to testing results, recalls for Salmonella, E. coli O157:H7 and Listeria in FSIS regulated products also dropped from 65 in 2002 to 28 in 2003.
· Framework for implementing animal ID was announced April 27 by Agriculture Secretary Ann M. Veneman. The National Animal Identification System (NAIS) is designed to identify any agricultural premise exposed to a foreign animal disease so that it can be more quickly contained and eradicated. Implementation of a NAIS will be conducted in three main phases. Under Phase I, USDA would evaluate current federally funded animal identification systems and determine which system(s) should be used for a NAIS, further the dialogue with producers and other stakeholders on the operation of a NAIS, identify staffing needs, and develop any regulatory and legislative proposals needed for implementing the system. Phase II would involve the implementation of the selected animal identification system at regional levels for one or more selected species, continuation of the communication and education effort, addressing regulatory needs and working with Congress on any needed legislation. In Phase III, the selected animal identification system(s) would be scaled up to the national level.
U.S. Department of Agriculture
It looks like it is being launched from the USDA; but it isn't. The receiving of the data is going through the USDA and the grant monies are being funneled out through the USDA. The the data isn't being stored with the USDA.

At least 5% of the Gross National Product to be spent on health; A reasonable percentage of the national health expenditure devoted to local health care; Equal distribution of resources;
Same with the Model School Nutrition Program which falls under 7. Educational and Community-Based Programs and 10. Food Safety programs listed above. Our state just mandated it. So what does that mean? Our state took the grant money. Now, agents of this program get to enter our school systems to gather data and have auditing rights to the schools records.
They have now criminalized the peanut butter and jelly sandwich so these agents can come in and gather information on our children in public and private schools.
1. Target Setting and Assessing Progress for Measurable Objectives
One of the three overarching goals for the Healthy People 2000 prevention initiative was to reduce health disparities among Americans.1 The framework of Healthy People 2010 has taken this a step further by proposing to eliminate health disparities as one of the two primary goals for the next decade.
(snip) Database Description
DATA2010 is a SAS database that contains one record (or observation) for each objective and subpart found in the 28 focus areas. The database will also contain records for the measures used to track the goals and the Leading Health Indicators.
Each record in the database contains the following information:
Objective text (abbreviated)
Tracking data for subsequent years (future)
Comments (definitions, clarifications, and explanations)
In the future, DATA2010 will contain additional population groups, and include options for chart and map generation. State data are expected to be added to the database, and users will be able to select national and/or State data. There also will be links to the operational definitions in Tracking Healthy People 2010 and to the Healthy People 2010 Web site http://health.gov/healthypeople/. Where available, standard errors of the estimates will be included in the database
I think we need a lot more than 2,010 of them.

I found more information on the grant for personal data info I was telling you about.
Here's the latest thread on the topic of tracking children's nutritional habits...
~whew Good golly!
I'm very leery about our government. The more I hear the more I think they want to turn us all into puppets to do their bidding. America sure isn't the America I grew up in!
Which IMO, means more Reds under the bed, a new socialist attack from another direction.

It's Hillarycare in tiny nano-sized bits, but just as dangerous. I had no idea that Klintoon started the nano tech boom. Read the beaurocratic fine print in the article. It looks a bit like the re-start of hundreds of FDR's alphabet agencies that will control and re-make all life forms in the near future.

September 2002: The http://phpartners.org/hp/ Healthy People 2010 Information Access Project is a pilot project to make information and evidence-based strategies related to the Healthy People 2010 objectives easier to find. The National Library of Medicine and the Public Health Foundation staff have worked together to develop pre-formulated search strategies for selected Healthy People 2010 focus areas. In addition, all focus area chapters have had direct PubMed search links created for references.

This is one of the funded grant programs:

Actually, I think it is Hillary's Health Care project. I have found a number of university hospitals signed on this this and taking funding.
This initiative was stimulated by President Clinton's commitment to eliminate disparities in health for racial and ethnic minority populations by 2010.
DHHS OFFICE OF HEALTH PROMOTION AND DISEASE PREVENTION
AND THE HEALTHY PEOPLE 2010 INITIATIVE
Dr. Randy Wykoff, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Health for Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, DHHS, presented an overview of Healthy People 2010, including the Leading Health Indicators, and possible ways to maximize this initiative. Healthy People 2010 is coordinated by the DHHS Office for Disease Prevention and Health Promotion.
Dr. Wykoff noted that Healthy People 2010 is a comprehensive set of national 10-year objectives that are developed through a collaborative process involving both the public and private sectors. All the objectives are specific and measurable over time based on data. The document, published and distributed by the Federal Government, also is a statistical description of the health status of Americans, including racial and ethnic disparities; a textbook on current public health priorities; and an important part of the national strategic plan for improving health. Healthy People 2010 is the third iteration of an effort that began in 1979 with publication of the Surgeon General's Report on Health Promotion and Disease Prevention. Ever larger and more complex, this iteration has two overarching goals, 28 focus areas, 467 objectives, and 10 leading health indicators.

Found that phrase again here.
Otherwise known as perpetuating their no-heavy-lifting jobs.
This stuff is downright sickening! Well, I'm to old now to let them mold ME in the way they want me to go. I guess our government will just have to shoot me.
I'm so sick of this Big Brother chit I can just scream. And the lawmakers wondered why we don't trust them any longer.
I feel sorry for anyone under the age of 35 today. They are in the midst of "Dumbing Down of America!"
Also brings to my mind another great saying that goes the road to hell is paved with good intentions.
Here is one of these GRANTS in action!
UF requirement for partner benefits: You must have sex
Gainsville Sun ^ | 1/23/06 | JACK STRIPLING
So, does the university open all the data for collection? Or just the ones submitting an affidavit?
Big Brother may be partnering to get this data....
But don't lose site on the fact that it is going to data storage systems NOT OF THE USA!!!!
Maybe it is just me; but I find that worse!
And I dispute the good intentions.
I'm positive all 28 of those bullets listed is a red herring.
Absolutely no on can convince me that Robert Fourdraine of the Netherlands was concerned about whether there was a cookie or an apple in my kids lunch bag.
The (fill in the blank) program is a nice nice sell to get the data.
Now I've tried to find that link and I can't. Seemed so easy at first.
Why doesn't that surprise me! In this day and age with so many "immigrants" moving into the United States, why doesn't this surprise me!
Is this why the NAIS language uses the terms 'National Herd'?
>>>d) The Grantee shall not encumber, transfer or dispose of any property, equipment or other asset, or any part thereof, acquired wholly or in part with Grantor funds without the written consent of the Grantor,
(e) Grantees shall adequately control and safeguard all assets associated with the grant to ensure that they are used solely for authorized purposes,
Does this mean, when the grant money is used toward premise registration and tagging, that the animals and premises are no longer the producers? Hence now, 'Stakeholders'?
From my other thread:
Animal Tagging and SCHOOL LUNCHES???
What does School Lunches have to do with Animal Tracking?
They are both tracing back to:
Food Safety Network
The tracking methods of health and nutrition and animal tracking are both going to be using a Nationally Interactive Database.

Both of these efforts claim to be a product of the:

Just a little reminder, if you will, that you child is on the hefty side and please try to watch his weight.
I give it a couple years and then the Child Protective Agencies will remove overweight children from their parents arms on the grounds of abuse.
The powers that be started this with good intentions. Oh my god, there are so many overweight children these days. Perhaps the poor parents can't afford a scale. Well, we will help them out and weigh their children at school!!! Let's all give ourselves a soft, caring, kindness pat on our backs for doing this. Wow, we all feel so much better about ourselves for being so empathetic.
Two years later - dang, these kids still don't look like the kids on Nickolodean - some of them are still overweight. Those parents don't care, they are neglecting them. Call CPS!!!!
Ever see a do-gooder program that was ever reversed, eliminated? No it gets more and more complicated, more governmental employees are hired and guess what - our taxes go up.
Same people who declare to the heavens that women have a right to their own body and to murder their unborn children find that it's different with everything else.
I'm getting on a rant and my blood pressure is rising now. I understand your point at disputing good intentions. I think alot of it is too dang many people with too much time on their hands and new computers.
Heard that kind of remark in 1970. Come to think of it, the same remark has been made probably all along through history. But, it does appear that dicey times are coming soon. Some say there are two rational approaches to the problem: optimism and pessimism. There may be a third way: call it what you want, but it amounts to keeping on keeping on.
That is one of the grant programs. Do that parents of those children know that data is being collected and given to this NGO database?
I am appalled. Funny the MSM doesn't report on THIS junk, eh???
God only knows what is going on behind closed doors and behind our backs. I guess they think we would never find this.
Like I've said before on the Puff Ping threads. Why doesn't anyone ever say when they go nonsmoking, there are grant entitlements from the Cigarette Restitution Fund.
The thing of it is, most of the money is being paid for by smokers who pay taxes on cigarettes. That is usually in the state that the smoker resides.
But this group is overseas. So, I am not sure if our Federal Government is sending smokers tax dollars to that group or not. This group is new to me. I never heard of them before.
And I thought the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation were pigs!
>>>>So, I am not sure if our Federal Government is sending smokers tax dollars to that group or not.
Yikes. I'm not sure you followed all of this either. Most of this money is coming from an NGO. Not the feds!
Like I said, this one is all new to me, and maybe I haven't grasp the whole situation yet. But no matter what, this can't be good!
You are absolutely right about that. It is NOT good!
There seem to be several versions of the saying out there used by the Right and the Left. The version I always heard was on libertarian sites: "First they came for the Jews, and I was silent because I was not a Jew. Then they came for the guns, and I was silent..." Ending with, "When they came for me, there was no one left to speak out."
But it appears it started as a saying against the Nazis.
Well... I just did a little too much research on that one. :-0 Back to work...
LOL! Like we have a choice?

What are Nongovernmental Organizations (NGOs)
(joint) Transnational organizations of private citizens that maintain a consultative status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations. Nongovernmental organizations may be professional associations, foundations, multinational businesses, or simply groups with a common interest in humanitarian assistance activities (development and relief). Nongovernmental organizations is a term normally used by non-United States organizations.
NGO Global Network
This site is the home page for our global NGO community (Non-governmental organizations associated with the United Nations).
Its aim is to help promote collaborations between NGOs throughout the world, so that together we can more effectively partner with the United Nations and each other to create a more peaceful, just, equitable and sustainable world for this and future generations.
blah blah blah
That doesn't mean everyone understood me though. :(
