Woman Arrested for refusing smart meter

Glenn called this story one of the most important issues that will be ramping up in the months and years to come. A woman refused to allow workers to enter her property and install a ‘smart’ meter. The woman refused the update and ended up being arrested over it. Glenn talked more on radio today about why you should be concerned.

"Let me tell you about Jennifer Stahl. She has been a strong advocate against the smart meter program in Naperville, Illinois. She's been talking about it and standing up against it for two years. The issue came to head on Wednesday afternoon when she was arrested for refusing to let the utility workers install the smart meter on her home. She said, 'I was protecting my property,' she said in an interview with TheBlaze yesterday afternoon. 'I felt my emotion was like a mama bear protecting her babies.' Stahl was at a friend's house when she received the call from her husband that the utility workers had arrived. She was home within 15 minutes and saw that they were at a neighbor's house. Her neighbor was not home, but they had signs stating that they did not permit the new meter to be installed."

"Stahl said she waited on her porch for the workers to arrive at her house. When they did, she refused them access to her backyard through her locked gate. Police, including the list supervisor, a sergeant, were called. Stahl said the sergeant explained the workers had authorization to access the meter, but Stahl stood her ground, said she didn't approve the new smart meter. The sergeant continued to try to convince Stahl to comply and said if she didn't, he'd have to arrest her. 'The City has always had and maintains the right to access our equipment and today we're just simply exercising that right,' says the city manager."

"The lock on Stahl's fence was cut and when Stahl wouldn't step away from the meter, she was led away by an officer, cuffed, and waited for a marked squad car to arrive to take her to the police department. When asked why she was being arrested, she was told it was for interfering with a police officer."

"Naperville Smart Meter Awareness has filed suit for which there are currently motions to dismiss as well as to grant temporary restricting orders for residents refusing meters. Tom Glass, member of the Naperville Smart Meter Awareness group told TheBlaze Thursday that he felt that the City is arresting residents for refusing is completely frightening in this day and age. The City is sending around people to read these smart meters and they don't work."

What does this mean for you? Glenn explained, "I hate to look like I'm anti-technology because, you know, it is an easier way to read the meters. But it is also a way to ‑ it is not just taking some information out. It is able to understand everything in your house. How, you know, how much juice are you pulling, which appliances, what's going on. They can tell just by reading this smart meter. How many people are in your house? Now, they can do that as well but not electronically. The system can go out. They're already, they're already eavesdropping on you on everything else. Now they're able to tell exactly what you're doing in your house, how you're using it, and then they can limit."

Glenn encouraged listeners to "spit themselves out of the system" and look for ways to unplug from the existing structures out there that they are dependent on. Glenn said he was working on his own energy projects to do just that because he doesn't want to be tied to existing systems further down the road.

"We're living in a different world and new technology, you have to understand is either going to free you or enslave you. Which is it going to be? And some things, if you play into the system more than you already are, you will end up at least being a candidate for slavery. Remember when I said spit yourself out of the system, I didn't even know what that meant and I think I used to say I don't know what that means. I do know what that means now. You detach yourself from the Borg as much as you possibly can. You don't go ‑‑ at least you don't go any further than you already are."

POLL: Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

Just one day after Hamas’s surprise attack on Israel, which left over 1,400 people Israelis dead, 34 different student groups from Harvard University wrote a joint statement pinning the blame of Hamas' terrorist attack on Israel. In the following days after publishing this callous statement, these students staged a walkout and rallied in support of the Palestinians. As Glenn has discussed, this is not an isolated event, and campuses across the country have hosted similar rallies where antisemitic jargon like "we don't want no Jew state" and "globalize the intifada" is freely spewed.

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

While the Universities have not officially backed any of these rallies or student groups that organized them, they haven't stopped them either, which raises the question: should they? On one hand, these are American students in American Universities, who are protected by the First Amendment. On the other hand, history tells us how dangerous antisemitism is if left unchecked; and what of the rights of Jewish students to be safe on the campuses they pay to attend? Let us know what you think in the poll below:

Should Israel take over Gaza after defeating Hamas? This contentious historical question has resurfaced amid Israel's retaliatory airstrikes in Gaza following Hamas' terror attacks, which resulted in the greatest death of Jews since the Holocaust. Biden and the global elites have warned Israel against occupation of the Palestinian territory. When asked on 60 Minutes if he would support the Israeli occupation of Gaza, Biden said, “I think it would be a big mistake.” Today Glenn responded to Biden’s answer: “I don't think it's a mistake to occupy."

This has been a long-standing, polarizing issue that is now more relevant than ever, and we want to hear YOUR thoughts. Let us know in the poll below:

Would you support an Israeli occupation of Gaza?

Do you think the Israeli airstrikes in Gaza are justified?

Funding IRAN?! Here are the TOP 5 reasons Joe Biden should be IMPEACHED

On September 12th, the House announced an official impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden with allegations of abuse of power, obstruction, and corruption. Naturally, the media quickly jumped to the President’s aid claiming that “there is no evidence to support these claims” and that the whole affair is a witch hunt.

If you’ve been listening to Glenn, you know that this is simply not the case. Biden has been committing impeachment-worthy deeds before he even stepped foot into the Oval Office—there’s no shortage of evidence to justify this inquiry. Here are 5 scathing reasons why Biden should be impeached:

He was responsible for the Afghanistan withdrawal disaster.

The Biden administration began with the US's disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. Under his watch, Biden left thousands of US citizens and allies stranded in the Taliban's hostile regime. Countless Afghan allies have been murdered by the Taliban due to the Biden administration's negligence.

He was involved with Hunter Biden's illicit foreign business dealings.

There is clear evidence that Joe Biden was more than aware of his son Hunter's foreign business dealings. From suspicious money laundering through the Biden family's accounts to Joe's involvement with important business meetings within Hunter's company, there is mounting evidence to warrant an impeachment inquiry.

He lied about his involvement with Hunter's business dealings.

Not only did Biden involve himself with his son's less-than-legal foreign business ventures, but he lied to the American people about it too, claiming he had NO KNOWLEDGE of what was going on.

He failed to protect the Southern border, and actively made it worse.

Biden singlehandedly turned the Southern border into the worst illegal immigration crisis in US history. He reversed many policies set in place by the Trump administration, resulting in 2.3 million illegal immigrants flooding into the US under his watch, a historic high.

Biden reversed the Trump-era policy that halted all funds going into Iran. The Wall Street Journal revealed the smoking-gun evidence proving that Iran trained AND funded Hamas before its gruesome terror attacks against Israel. Moreover, shortly before the attacks, the Biden administration unfroze $6 BILLION dollars of Iran's assets as a part of a prisoner swap. On top of this, Biden resumed $200 million worth of "humanitarian aid" to Gaza that Trump had ended—because the money was being used to buy weapons for Hamas.

From groceries to house prices, everything seems to get more expensive, and you can thank Biden for that. Glenn recently exposed the truth about 'Bidenomics' and the havoc it has wrought on the American economy. Here are five economic milestones during the Biden administration that expose the glaring track record of "Bidenomics:"

In July 2022, the inflation rate hit 9.1 percent, a 40-year record high.

In June 2022, gas hit an all time record high of $5 a gallon for the national average.

61 percent of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck as of this September.

Interest rates reached a 15-year high at 5.25 percent and are still increasing.

Americans have $1 trillion in collective credit card debt, in part due to food/staple pieces being very high.
