2017: New 5G Cell Towers and Smart Meters to Increase Microwave Radiation and Invade Privacy

By John P. Thomas When the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) approved the use of 5-G microwave communication technology in 2016 and approved the use of microwave frequencies in the 30 Ghz range, [1], they opened the door to even higher levels of human illness and severe disability for American children and adults. Microwave radiation such as that currently being used in cell phones, Wi-Fi routers, and smart meters has already been linked to numerous health effects. The introduction of even more intense levels of microwave exposure at higher frequencies will push many people into a life-threatening chronic illness. High-frequency microwave radiation is often overlooked as a causative factor in illness, because most conventional healthcare providers, government regulators, telecom companies, and electric utilities believe microwave radiation used in communication technology is harmless. [2] Despite the warnings being raised by scientists, well-informed healthcare providers, and grassroots organizations about existing and future […] Read More

2016: Cell Phone Addiction: 15 Numbers That Show The Ridiculous Obsession Americans Have With Their Phones

Have you ever had a family gathering, a social function or a business meeting ruined by someone that was obsessed with checking their cell phone?  I see this wherever I go, and it is one of the reasons why I don’t like to leave the house much.  No matter who is around and no matter how important what they are supposed to be doing may be, many Americans feel a deep, dark compulsion to constantly check their smartphones.  As you will see below, the average user checks his or her phone 35 times a day, but of course, there are some people that are well into the triple digits.  Cell phone addiction is very real, and that is why there are actually rehab programs for this sort of thing.  Unfortunately, we simply can’t put the entire country into rehab, and this problem just keeps getting worse with each passing […] Read More

Homeland Security Conceals “Secret Plan to Cut Cell Service” During Emergencies

As communications become increasingly important to online life, and political expression, Homeland Security and law enforcement wield powerful new tools to regulate the signal and control the masses, particularly during crises. Lawsuits by the Electronic Privacy Information Center have hinged around disclosure of a secret plan that gives the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) the ability to cut cell service and black out communications across entire cities, or on specific areas. How extensively the plan has been developed remains unknown, as legal action so far has failed to declassify the digital tool of mass control. via Ars Technica: The Supreme Court is setting aside a petition from the Electronic Privacy Information Center that demanded the Department of Homeland Security release the US government’s secret plan to shutter mobile phone service during disasters. … ruling that the DHS did not have to divulge the full contents of Standard Operating Procedure 303.

2014: Florida Cop Breaks 14-Year-Old Girl’s Arm During Warrantless Cell Phone Search

The Supreme Court ruled earlier this year that police must have a warrant to search cell phones and other personal electronic devices. Florida parents are calling for a Greenacres Police Department officer to be fired after he reportedly broke their 14-year-old daughter’s arm while attempting a warrantless search of her cell phone. According to an arrest report published by the Broward-Palm Beach New Times this week, Officer Jared Nash explained that he approached the 14-year-old girl at John I. Leonard High School on Oct. 21 because he believed that she had video of a fight on her cell phone. Nash described the girl, who was talking on the cell phone, as “uncooperative.” He said that she pushed him back as she tried to get past him to walk away. “When she did this I took a hold of her left arm,” he wrote, adding that he gave her a […] Read More

2013: NSA tracked US cell phone locations for two years, Senator says more is still secret

(Image credit: screenshot from YouTube video uploaded by Sen. Ron Wyden) The National Security Agency (NSA) has finally admitted to tracking the cell phone location of Americans. For two years, in 2010 and 2011, the spy agency ran an “experiment” pilot project in which they wanted to test how location information would flow into their massive databases containing other information on Americans. Editor’s note: be sure to read my story on this subject, “NSA chief admits figures about foiled terror plots misleading, agency tested cellphone location tracking“ As the New York Times reported on Wednesday, “it was unclear how many Americans’ locational data was collected as part of the project, whether the agency has held on to that information or why the program did not go forward.” What’s clear to us is this was a massive invasion of privacy. Cell phone location data is among the most sensitive data […] Read More
