From Josh del Sol, producer of “Take Back Your Power”:
As promised, today we’re delivering a new YouTube video, “Gestapo In The USA,” which blows the doors off the FCC and 5G story. Here’s the link: …..This is the most important piece I’ve released since Take Back Your Power. Five absolutely remarkable events unfolded at FCC’s July 14 public meeting in DC, where 5G was rubber-stamped. There was shocking intimidation of press and suppression of truth. SNIP
Following is an email distributed by Standards Australia today (18 July 2016). Note that the deadline for submissions is 7 August 2016. In my opinion this is an underhanded move to essentially mandate the introduction of smart meters through the Standards Australia process. Will the public interest in regards to potential adverse health issues be included in the discussions? Obviously not. For this reason it is vital for concerned groups and individuals in Australia get on to this issue immediately and lobby for a voice in the Standards Australia process. SNIP
With the current Media Watch attack on the Catalyst program Wi-Fried and calls for its producer Maryanne Demasi to be sacked, it is worthwhile to note that this is not the first time in Australia that such an attack has happened when questions on the safety of wireless technology have been raised.
In this other case it was not a reporter or TV program but a senior CSIRO research scientist and his entire research department. Consider……
In early 1994 the Spectrum Management Agency, forerunner of the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) commissioned the CSIRO’s Division of Radiophysics to undertake a comprehensive review of the available world-wide research on the biological effects of radiofrequency/microwave (RF/MW) exposure on the human body. Funding for the study came from the national carrier Telecom (later Telstra), and the carriers Optus and Vodafone and the resulting report was authored by Dr. Stan Barnett from CSIRO’s Ultrasonics Laboratory, Division of Radiophysics.

Steve Cleary, who died last month, spent his entire professional career as a radiation biophysicist investigating microwave health effects. He was a remarkable scientist who played it straight, but who got tripped up in the politics surrounding health studies on cell phone radiation some 20 years ago.
Cleary had first-hand experience with those who sought to suppress microwave research and who defended arbitrary exposure standards. He called them the “microwave mafia.”
I first met Cleary in 1979 and we stayed in touch over the years. I’ve a written a personal reminiscence. Take a look and you will see shadows of what goes on today. One of those responsible for the roadblocks standing in Cleary’s way back then is now the chairman of the FCC. SNIP
About Nation on the Take by Wendell Potter and Nick Penniman
American democracy has become coin operated. Special interest groups increasingly control every level of government. The necessity of raising huge sums of campaign cash has completely changed the character of politics and policy making, determining what elected representatives stand for and how they spend their time. The marriage of great wealth and intense political influence has rendered our country unable to address our most pressing problems, from runaway government spending to climate change to the wealth gap. It also defines our daily lives: from the cars we drive to the air we breathe to the debt we owe.
