“Under my plan of a cap-and-trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket”

On January 17, 2008, President Obama famously said, “Under my plan of a cap-and-trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.” It’s now becoming evident that the new so-called “smart” meter your utility is attempting to force on you, is the culprit technology for the government-sponsored extortion that Obama was referring to. But this is just the beginning of a hornet’s nest of alarming details unveiled in our new documentary, Take Back Your Power (now available at the Infowars shop).
Billions of tax dollars… no benefits?

In a time of economic crisis, the US government allocated $11B of taxpayer funds from the 2009 bailout package to develop a “smart” grid, including “smart” meters for every home’s electricity, gas and water.  And recently, the European Union has announced plans to blow a mind-numbing $700B on building out this centralized control grid. The ostensible reasons for “smart” metering and grid technology:
a) to save energy and thus aid the environment;
b) to increase power reliability; and
c) to give you more control of energy use in your own home.

It is now easily demonstrated that all three of these claims are patently false. “Smart” meters and grids typically use more energy, they are extremely hackable (making the entire power grid vulnerable), and customers suffer increased utility bills virtually across the board immediately following a “smart” meter installation – a fact even acknowledged now by some utilities.

In the words of Dr. Timothy Schoechle, a leading digital technology engineer and author of “Getting Smarter About The Smart Grid:”

“The smart meter is a canard—a story or a hoax based on specious and grandiose claims about energy benefits ostensibly derived from the promise of “two-way” communication with the customer…  There is essentially no possibility that most smart meters or meter networks will lead to greater sustainability.”

Clear evidence of health damage

Tens of thousands of individuals are reporting officially, to governments and utilities, that they are experiencing illness or functional impairments following the installation of “smart” meters. Reported symptoms include headaches, sleep problems, ear ringing, focus difficulties, fatigue, heart palpitations, nausea and statistically abnormal recurrences of cancer. According to court-ordered documentation, and independent testing, utilities have been proven to be lying about how often “smart” meters transmit bursts of microwave radiation.  Depending on the utility their claim is typically something like “4-6 times per day” (Pepco), or “45-60 seconds per day” (PG&E) — whereas courts and independent testing reveal that meters are transmitting in the range of 10,000 to 190,000 pulsed microwave transmissions per day.

The amount of transmitted microwave radiation has been measured up to 200 times greater (if one is standing next to the meter) than the Building Biology standard threshold for “extreme concern.”  The radiation standards set by national agencies such as the FCC are literally thousands of times higher than science-based levels, because they actually assume that harm can only be done from electromagnetic radiation (EMR) if cells heat up by a certain amount.  This is called a “thermal effect”.  The reality is that more than 6,000 peer-reviewed, published studies have indicated functional impairment, symptoms of illness or disease (ie. “non-thermal effects”) from levels of EMR as much as 10,000 times lower than “safety” standards set by organizations such as the FCC, Health Canada, ICNIRP, etc.

But the health effects don’t end with the pulsed microwave radiation – from the meters and all future “smart” appliances – under this multinational plan of total control. Every “smart” digital electric meter has what’s known as a “switching mode power supply”, which is proven to directly create large amounts of dirty electricity – or high-frequency energy radiating throughout your home’s electric circuits, essentially creating an antenna cage. The levels of DE caused by “smart” meters can be several hundred times higher than some international safety standards. When confronted, one government agent would not talk about this on his work phone, but confirmed the awareness and concern of the DE health hazard on a private call.

As stated by Dr. De-Kun Li, a respected Kaiser Permanente scientist whom I interviewed, utilities and industry simply haven’t done any studies to show that “smart” meters are safe. Not one. In this complete void of responsibility or conscience, independent research is now starting to clearly show negative biological effects. One such example is demonstrated in our film – the effects of a single “smart” meter on live human blood – and the visual results are staggering, to say the least.

Additionally, by many reports there are now well over a thousand home fires linked to “smart” meters, and tens of thousands have experienced other appliance breakages in their home.  Incredulously, almost none of these meters, made mostly in China, have been tested or approved by UL or an equivalent standards body.  Thus, the homeowner has no guarantee of coverage, and is often left to deal with the damage and expense to repair.

“Smart” spy state

As if all this is not enough, “smart” meters – in combination of “smart” appliances also chronically transmitting low-level microwave radiation – are functionally designed to collect swaths of in-home private data on everyone.

According to a US Congressional Research Service report,
“Police will have access to data that might be used to track residents’ daily lives and routines while in their homes, including their eating, sleeping, and showering habits, what appliances they use and when, and whether they prefer the television to the treadmill, among a host of other details.”

But it gets worse.

Utilities and public utilities commissions (such as California’s PUC) are actually encouraging the sale of this private data – everything you do in your own home – to 3rd-party corporate interests, for a profit.

And incredulously, even former CIA Director David Patraeus boasted (in Wired, March 2012) that government will be routinely spying on through their “smart” appliances.  Thus, with CISPA’s focus on legalizing private data transfer deals for corporations to government agencies, the primary motivation behind the push for such legislation starts to become clear.

And not only would every detail of your life be tracked, but your access to electricity would be totally controlled: your appliances or entire home could be shut down at any time – without notice – by any utility, or government agency, or as former CIA director James Woolsey states, “a hacker on a cellphone in China.”

Newsflash: the NSA phone spying scandal is just the tip of the globalist iceberg.

The good news: this master plan of control and order-out-of-chaos cannot be achieved if enough people simply refuse to participate in this federally-sponsored voluntary microwave and surveillance program.

The rising tide of awakening

This is the first time in known history that either governments or corporations are attempting to force a device (on entire populations) which has been openly proven to cause direct harm to health, rights, security and property. And this agenda rips apart the 4th, 5th and 10th Constitutional Amendments.

The installation of “smart” meters is either underway or planned in virtually all western countries, despite existing foundational laws which have heretofore served as protection for the people. It does, in fact, appear that the corrupted powers-that-be truly are going for broke on this one folks.

However, as documented in Take Back Your Power, there is a growing widespread awareness and resistance to this anti-freedom, anti-life program.  Hundreds of local governments have issued a moratorium on the installation of “smart” meters, and in California alone, 15 councils have criminalized the installations.  Several such as Sebastopol have additionally issued an ordinance fining PG&E $500 fine per installed meter in their city.

But PG&E and other utilities around the world still are not backing down.  In almost all regions where people are beginning to rise to their feet, utilities are moving toward an extortive “opt-out” program, charging customers through the nose for the privilege of not being microwaved and surveilled in their home. Last week the rogue British Colombian government floated the idea to more than 60,000 hold-outs, to pay them an initial fee of $100, and then pay them an ongoing fee of $35 per month, just to keep their analog meter.

According to some legal experts we interviewed, the trick is to realize that it’s just a poker game.

There is no law requiring you to accept a so-called “smart” meter on your home, or to participate in extortion, even though utilities and governments are intimidating people into believing they have no choice. Strangely enough, paying criminals to minimize the harm they are doing does not sit well with most people.

Legal actions and claim-of-right processes against installations are sprouting up and becoming almost ubiquitous. In many local governments that are still not listening to the people, individual councilors and mayors are now beginning to be on the receiving end of civil and criminal litigation, and processes based in contract law. As one rights group put it,

“No longer can a department head say they were just following orders. No longer can a mayor or city council member say they didn’t know, especially when an avalanche of information is presented to them indicating their position on an issue is detrimental to the health their constituency.”

Because virtually all of us have utility meters, we all now have direct leverage against a central pillar of the planetary control system, perhaps for the first time in any social movement, ever.

This is why we made Take Back Your Power. This is why we put up with two years of corporate witchcraft and BS. To let people know – in a highly credible, inspiring and hugely entertaining way – that you no longer have to be silenced by a faceless, soulless enemy. And to provide a tool that can be used like a light saber of awakening on personal networks – or entire regions.

The curtain’s pulled back. Time to connect-the-dots and turn the tables. Let’s start by reaching the 20% who are more-or-less already awake.

High stakes, big opportunity

What’s at stake is nothing less than our basic rights to life, health, choice and freedom itself.  When finally understood, this situation is a crisis, but it is also a truly momentous opportunity to claim power back into the hands of the people, by decentralizing energy production within the community, and vetoing the old dinosaurs of leechlike extraction.  The insanity of these systems is becoming evident, no matter how well-trained the oligarchy’s PR department.

What helps to make sense of this whole thing, is coming to the understanding that governments have become corporate puppets and have been systematically suppressing any tangible solution for decades. The Federation of American Scientists acknowledges that more than 5,000 technology patent applications have been “secretized.” And the US Patent Office actually has a publicly-visible internal law for the suppression of inventions. With 6 of the 7 world’s richest companies in the oil/gas/energy industry, should it be surprising that corporate governments have (in Spain) actually passed laws to prohibit the “illegal use of sunlight for energy generation,” setting a fine of $30M Euros for violating homeowners?

The fact is, in order for human civilization to make it through this time of terrible corruption – and to realize a world of decentralized power and restoration of rights to health, privacy and life itself – we are now required to transition to higher awareness of our situation.  We are being asked to confront our existential fear of authority; to go through the proverbial eye of the needle. This requires a realization of the tremendous magnitude of fraud that has been perpetrated by the corporate-government power centers – and then a willingness to take a stand and move our innate Creative force through this awareness. To commit to a solution that burns off the parasite, and benefits the living.

In the end, there is no other way but to stand against corruption, and reveal who we are.
