By Claire Edwards
This is my last Stop 5G Newsletter, or at least it is the last of this series of newsletters as I intend in the future to do the journalism on 5G, so signally not done by the mainstream media.
Next month, Arthur Firstenberg will be arranging for the Appeal to be hand-delivered to the UN, EU, WHO and governments. It seems a good moment to try to sum up my understanding of how we came to be in this 5G mad zone, poised to self-destruct. How on earth did we get here? It appears that every expansion of the use of electricity since the 19th century correlates with drastic rises in all the modern diseases of civilisation, but this information has been kept from the public in order not to impede commercial profit, military expansion and universal convenience.
Since 100 years+ of quantum physics has had little to no impact on the way we live our lives or how we perceive reality, we in the West still labour under the illusion that our bodies are made up of lumps of discrete matter that can be conveniently removed by a surgeon’s knife when they go wrong, this having been established in the 18th and 19th centuries by a grave-robbing spree to collect corpses for surgical experiments. Since no one seems to have considered the possibility that a living body might differ significantly from a dead one, this crude experimentation formed the basis for the whole system of what we now call Western medicine. All traditional and ancient healing wisdom based on a holistic view of a living body was outlawed by enforcing membership of a “professional body”.
In an inversion, typical of our Western thinking, natural healing methods dating back thousands of years could then be termed not “traditional”, but “alternative” and “backward”. Taking advantage of this – let us charitably call it an induced misconception – our militaries discovered that microwave weapons could be deployed silently and secretly to “defend” us from our alleged enemies. They gleefully amassed compendia of thousands of studies, many done in the Soviet bloc, in order to solidify their knowledge of the many and varied types of biological damage that these weapons could inflict on human beings at very little cost or inconvenience to those deploying them. There was even a symposium organised by the World Health Organization in 1973 to discuss The Biologic Effects and Health Hazards of Microwave Radiation, but the participants must have subsequently decided not to share this information with the public in view of their intelligent propensity to suspect that one day microwave weapons might be turned on them. Instead of informing the public that their bodies were, in fact, not solid at all but entirely electrical, these military and industrial entities kept secret all their thousands of studies on the biological effects of microwaves.
They established regulatory bodies with grand names intended to impress the public, filled them with industry and military stooges, and set electromagnetic radiation (EMR) exposure limits so high that it would be impossible to exceed them, similar to setting car speed limits at a thousand miles/kilometres per hour. Russia’s public exposure standards are 100 times more stringent than those in the US. The self-proclaimed international commission on non-ionizing radiation protection (ICNIRP), which is an NGO with no international or official status that appoints its own members with no oversight or transparency and protects no one from anything, while disclaiming all liability on its website for any of its pronouncements, sets non-legally enforceable and astronomically high exposure guidelines that are time-averaged over 6 minutes to avoid taking peak pulsations into account and thereby falsify exposure calculations. What a pity no one told Jackie Kennedy about the 6-minute average when that magic bullet changed her life! How different history might have been!
These bizarre guidelines are embraced enthusiastically by the WHO and the International Telecommunication Union, both UN bodies, and most of the world’s governments, with no basis in law.
4G uses 2.45 GHz, which has been shown in more than 100 studies to cause a wide variety of severe damage to the body and nature at levels below the so-called safety guidelines of icnirp. Despite the regulatory agencies knowing this with absolute certainty since they have the study findings, they have told the public that there are only thermal or heating effects and continue to do so in their draft guidelines revised upwards to permit 5G. They have published pictures of plastic mannequin heads filled with gel that they put probes inside to demonstrate the heating effect. “Look at our wonderful science!”, they seem to say, “The mannequin head has suffered no ill-effects! Why should you worry?”
Of course, there were people who spent a lot of time exposed to EMR through computer screens or other devices, who started to complain of illnesses. This was not good because it could affect the sales of electrical products and impede the military developing ever more sophisticated weapons, so the corrupt WHO just called these people mad: on its website, it claimed that the EMR-related symptoms experienced by millions of people worldwide “may be due to pre-existing psychiatric conditions as well as stress reactions as a result of worrying about EMF health effects, rather than the EMF exposure itself”. Any apparent rise in cancer rates is rapidly attributed to improved diagnostic techniques rather than the more obvious true cause of exposure to an environmental toxin.
This was a good solution, for such people could not use machines to communicate to anyone else that they were experiencing health problems, and in fact even more conveniently, they became societal outcasts because many of them became homeless, living in cars in the woods where there was no EMR. And thus it was that almost no one learned that there was any problem. As you would expect, there were a few scientists who didn’t care for the idea of getting paid lots of money to tell lies that kill people and they started to try to advertise the truth, but it’s not difficult to arrange for them to lose their jobs or their study funding to silence them. All you need do then is simply buy up the media and pay journalists to dismiss tens of thousands of awkward scientific studies on the basis that they do not provide “solid”, “real”, “proven”, ”credible”, “convincing”, ”conclusive” or “established” evidence. And you employ pliable scientists to “muddy the waters” or “war-game” the science by producing studies that show inconclusive results.
As time went on, the military wanted industry to develop better weapons for them, but this was expensive, and frankly it was becoming quite difficult to convince the public that there were that many enemies that they needed to be protected from. A lot of effort was put into creating and funding so-called terrorists, but it didn’t do much good because the public didn’t need to make much effort to realize that they were way less likely to be killed by a terrorist than to get food-poisoning, for example. So the military and industry had a brilliant idea. What about commercializing this weapons technology as a communications technology that they could sell to the public, and then the public would pay for all the research and development of new and improved weapons? Even better, they knew that cell phones would be addictive so everyone would want a phone. And they would be able to control people’s minds and tell them what to think, what to do and what to buy. You could have complete physical surveillance inside and outside people’s homes. How perfect! You could have a completely orderly society, with no one complaining about how eight people had accumulated wealth equal to that possessed by half the population of the planet. And if one in two children become autistic, they would make really efficient, robotic workers, would always be happy and never make trouble!
We see endless articles saying it makes good business sense. After the kleptocracy of neoliberal economics, during which everything that could be stolen was stolen, all that is left is to consume the consumer him- or herself. Companies like Facebook are designed to do just that and Zuckerberg regards consumers as “dumb fucks” for giving away their information for free.
Already in 1981, icnirp’s predecessor organisation irpa acknowledged that general population exposure from man-made sources of microwave and RF radiation exceeded that from natural sources by many orders of magnitude. Work done by Russian and Ukrainian researchers published in a US review in 2001 established that, during the previous 50 years, the round-the-clock power of radio emissions had increased by a factor of more than 50,000. The same paper discussed the development of psychic disturbances under EMR exposure showing effects ranging from changes in mood to nonsensical ideas and aural and visual hallucinations, and disturbances in behaviour all the way to attempts at suicide.
While people’s minds are disturbed by their exposure to EMR, the mainstream media plies them with blanket coverage of Greta Thunberg fear-porning about an unsubstantiated 12 years until doomsday from non-existent anthropegenic climate change in order to persuade them that they need a totalitarian, world government that can guarantee their safety in uncertain times.
Populations have been discombobulated by 25 years of cell phone use, 12 of them under intense “smart” phone attack. Parents are so fascinated by their phones that their children drown in swimming pools right in front of them. More and more people walk out into the road when a car is coming or fall over or down something while peering into “smart’ phones.
We hear of adverse effects on learning, attention, and behavior. Children are being exposed to magnetic fields from cell phones that breach WHO’s recommended 0.3μT safety limit by a factor of 20,000. Meanwhile, insurance companies, which presumably have to protect their existence by keeping a grip on reality, refuse to insure against EMF injuries or damage.
The deployment of 5G is presented by militaries, governments and commercial entities as a race in which the winner takes all. Why should such a dangerous and completely untested technology have to be rolled out so quickly? Could it be that the Internet is empowering people who are increasingly impoverished to open their eyes about the kleptocrats who plunder the planet? Could it be that the true health effects of 25 years of cell phone use cannot much longer be hidden? Whatever the reason, Eisenhower’s military-industrial complex has revealed itself in the 5G project, showing its hand clearly in the crossover between the two, including in the regulatory agencies. The limited frequencies available have to be shared among commercial and military entities.
Thus 25 years of diminishing mental capacity among populations due to irradiation facilitated by the lie of the thermal hypothesis, combined with the apparent urgency to protect ill-gotten gains and prevent populations awakening to the truth and flexing their muscles to redress the power balance have conspired to produce a mad free-for-all – a license to irradiate without constraint from every corner of the planet and from above our heads. Technicans have been given free rein to dream up ways of attacking populations: from under manhole covers; from cabinets on the street; from lamp posts that blast blue light with no more diffusers, as well as 5G EMR in laser-like beams; from adhesive strips of tiny but highly powerful antennas hidden under carpets; on the street; in trains; in planes; in cars; in buses; blasting through the walls of our homes; from our television sets; from fridges, hairdryers, milk cartons, babies’ diapers, baby monitors, “smart”phones, “smart” meters, and soon from the trillions of devices that are planned to be connected to the Internet of Things. This is not to mention the plethora of “wearables” and cell phone apps that purport to help you monitor your health status while seriously undermining it.
The plan is to beam 5G down to Earth from satellites in the Earth orbits, from networked civil aircraft, from pseudo-satelites in the stratosphere … In other words, from everywhere. The stated plan and the word trumpeted in the 5G literature is to “blanket” every inch of the Earth, with no escape for any of the approximately 100 million people worldwide already made sick by the toxic environment supplied courtesy of the first to fourth generations of WiFi, to which 5G will be additional.
There will also be no escape for the trees, which have to go as they block the 5G signals and risk interrupting the continuous signals essential for self-driving vehicles, nor for the birds, the insects or the food chain. Any remnants of a sane, balanced, calm and quiet life will be wiped out by 5G, 4G, 3G, or any other G of wireless technology.
We are complicit in our own destruction and, worse, in the wanton destruction of all life on this Earth. Greed, fear, stupidity and hubris have brought us to this point, complemented by inanity, laziness, complacency and unconsciousness.
The 5G Dementors are coming In for the kill. The question is whether the people choosing to play out the Zombie Apocalypse on their “smart” phones can tear themselves away long enough to care. If they can, or if at least some of them can, they need to understand certain realities:
It’s not rocket science. It’s not any kind of science. It’s simple common sense.

International Appeal to Stop 5G on Earth and in Space
5G APOCALYPSE – GATESHEAD EDITION
Mark Steele is a weapons expert and a tireless campaigner against 5G,
a lone voice opposing the rollout of 5G in Gateshead, England.
Twice Gateshead Council has tried to silence him.
The video explains that the Strategic Director of Gateshead Council has formal links to
two telecoms companies with a vested interest in 5G.
It also explains that nosebleeds, headaches, nausea and incidents of depression
have occurred since erection of the 5G masts.
Mark says that since 5G was rolled out in 2013,
there has been a massive deterioration in the health status of Gateshead residents.
Mark tries to deliver notice of legal action against the Council at the Council Offices,
and the staff refuse to accept it and hide from Mark and his team.
In October 2018, when a German lawyer tried to deliver Dr. Martin Pall’s response to
ICNIRP’s public consultation exercise on their revised guidelines for enabling 5G,
ICNIRP and the German government’s own Federal Office for Radiation Protection
both refused to accept Dr. Pall’s report.
ICNIRP’s guidelines are not protective. They do not acknowledge proven biological effects, but only thermal (heating) effects. ICNIRP’s magical guidelines average values over 6 minutes, thus discounting peak values. It’s like averaging a gunshot to the head over 6 minutes – the bullet could not possibly kill you at that reduced velocity – but it does!
The UN and your government collude with the telecoms industry to endorse these guidelines – issued by an NGO with no status in international law – and thereby collude in enabling the telecoms companies to irradiate you, your children and your planet 24/7 …
with Apple ear buds, with “smart” phones, with WiFi routers, in trains, in trams, in aeroplanes with 28 GHz public access points, from thousands of antennas in phased arrays forming laser-like beams, placed under manhole covers on the street, inside cabinets on the street, on lamp posts, from drones in the stratosphere, from satellites in space.
WE ARE UNDER ATTACK 24/7.
Your body is electric: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pm-Ia6vI4PA&t=949s
Ladies and gentlemen, we have a complete breakdown in the rule of law. What we thought were our public servants have been co-opted to serve corporate interests. Your health, your family and your Earth are being sacrificed for those corporate interests to make money.

5G APOCALYPSE – GATESHEAD EDITION
Mark Steele ist Waffen Experte und unermüdlicher Kämpfer gegen 5G, eine einsame Stimme gegen den rollout von 5G in Gateshead, England. Zweimal hat der Gemeinderat versucht, ihn zum schweigen zu bringen.
Das Video erklärt, dass der Strategische Direktor des Gateshead Council ist formal verbunden mit zwei Telekommunikationsunternehmen mit einem Eigenanteil von 5G.
Mark erklärt auch, dass Nasenbluten, Kopfschmerzen, Übelkeit und Depressionen sind seit der Errichtung der 5G Masten aufgetreten.
Mark sagt, dass seit 5G im Jahr 2013 ausgerollt wurde, es gab eine massive Verschlechterung des Gesundheitszustandes der Bewohner von Gateshead.
Mark versucht zu liefern, die Ankündigung rechtlicher Schritte gegen den Rat auf dem Rat-Büros, und das Personal weigert sich, es zu akzeptieren und sich vor Mark und seinem Team zu verstecken.
Im Oktober 2018, als ein deutscher Rechtsanwalt versuchte, Dr. Martin Palls Antwort auf die ICNIRP öffentliche Konsultation zu Ihren überarbeiteten Leitlinien für die Aktivierung von 5G, ICNIRP und das Bundesamt für Strahlenschutz der Bundesregierung beide weigerten sich, Dr. Palls Bericht anzunehmen.
Die Richtlinien der ICNIRP sind nicht schützend. Sie erkennen nicht die nachgewiesenen biologischen Wirkungen an, sondern nur die thermischen (Heizungs -) Wirkungen. Die Werte der magischen ICNIRP-Leitlinien werden auf einem Durchschnitt von 6 Minuten berechnet, also ohne Berücksichtigung der Spitzenwerte. Es ist, als würde man die Durchschnittsgeschwindigkeit einer Kugel auf den Kopf über 6 Minuten berechnet – die Kugel könnte Sie nicht bei dieser reduzierten Geschwindigkeit töten – aber doch so ist es!
Die UNO und Ihre Regierung schließen sich der Telekom-industrie an, um diese Leitlinien – die von einer NGO ohne rechtlichen internationale Status herausgegeben wurden – zu unterstützen und damit Telekom-Unternehmen in die Lage zu versetzen, Sie, Ihre Kinder und Ihren Planeten rund um die Uhr, 7 Tage die Woche, zu strahlen …
mit Apple Earbuds, mit “smart” Handys, mit WiFi-Routern, in Zügen, in Straßenbahnen, in Flugzeugen mit 28 GHz öffentlichen Zugangspunkten, von tausenden von Antennen in phased arrays die machen laserähnliche Strahlen, unter Kanaldeckeln und in Schränkeauf der Straße platziert, auf Laternen Pfosten, von Drohnen in der Stratosphäre, von Satelliten im Weltraum.

5G APOCALYPSE – GATESHEAD EDITION
Mark Steele est expert en armes et militant infatigable contre la 5G,
une seule voix s’opposant au déploiement de la 5G à Gateshead, en Angleterre.
Deux fois, le Conseil de Gateshead a essayé de le faire taire.
La vidéo explique que le Directeur Stratégique du Conseil de Gateshead a des liens formels avec deux entreprises de télécommunications ayant un intérêt direct dans la 5G.
Elle explique aussi que les saignements de nez, les maux de tête, les nausées et les incidents de dépression se sont produits depuis l’érection des mâts de 5G.
Mark dit que depuis que la 5G a été déployée en 2013, l’état de santé des résidents de Gateshead s’est considérablement détérioré.
Mark essaie de livrer une action en justice contre le Conseil dans les bureaux du Conseil, et le personnel refuse de l’accepter et se cache de Mark et de son équipe.
En octobre 2018, lorsqu’un avocat allemand a tenté de livrer la réponse du Dr Martin Pall à l’exercice de consultation publique de l’ICNIRP sur ses lignes directrices révisées pour permettre le déploiement de la 5G. l’ICNIRP et l’Office fédéral de protection contre la radiation (Bundesamt für Strahlenschutz) du gouvernement allemand, tous deux ont refusé d’accepter le rapport du Dr Pall.
Les lignes directrices de l’ICNIRP ne sont pas protectrices.Elles ne reconnaissent pas les effets biologiques prouvés, mais seulement les effets thermiques (de chauffage). Les valeurs des lignes directrices magiques de l’ICNIRP sont calculées sur une moyenne de 6 minutes, donc sans tenir compte des valeurs de pointe. C’est comme si on calculait la moyenne de la vitesse d’un tir sur la tête pendant 6 minutes – la balle ne pourrait pas vous tuer à cette vitesse réduite – mais c’est bien le cas!
L’ONU et votre gouvernement s’associent à l’industrie des télécoms pour endosser ces lignes directrices – émises par une ONG sans statut juridique international – et donc permettent aux entreprises de télécommunications de vous irradier, ainsi que vos enfants et votre planète, 24 heures sur 24, 7 jours sur 7 …
avec des Earbuds Apple, avec des « smart » phones, avec des routeurs WiFi, dans les trains, dans les tramways, dans les avions avec des points d’accès publics à 28 GHz, à partir de milliers d’antennes pointant simultanément de multiples faisceaux d’ondes électromagnétiques, analogues aux faisceaux laser, placés sous des couvercles de regard sur la rue (et explicitement placés sur le trottoir), à l’intérieur d’armoires sur la rue, sur des lampadaires, à partir de drones dans la stratosphère, à partir de satellites dans l’espace …

Alarming Decline in Millennials’ Health
Millennials — the first generation to grow up using cell phones — are experiencing an unprecedented decline in their health when they reach their late 20s.
On April 24, 2019, the American health insurance association Blue Cross Blue Shield released a report titled “The Health of Millennials.” It showed not only that the health of this generation takes a sharp decline beginning at age 27, but also that the prevalence of many medical conditions rose precipitously among millennials in just three years.
The prevalence of eight of the top ten conditions among all millennials showed a double-digit increase in 2017 as compared with 2014. Major depression increased 31%. Hyperactivity increase 29%. Type II diabetes increased 22%. Hypertension increased 16%. Psychoses increased 15%. High cholesterol increased 12%. Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis increased 10%. Substance use disorder increased 10%.
The decline in millennials’ health from 2014 to 2017 was not due to their being three years older. The report also compared the health of millennials who were 34-36 years old in 2017 to the health of Gen Xers who were 34-36 years old in 2014. At the same age, 34- to 36-year-olds in 2017 had 37% more hyperactivity, 19% more diabetes, 18% more major depression, 15% more Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, 12% more substance use disorder, 10% more hypertension, and 7% more high cholesterol than 34- to 36-year-olds had in 2014.
When the researchers looked at all health conditions, they found that 34- to 36-year-olds in 2017 had a 21% increase in cardiovascular conditions, a 15% increase in endocrine conditions, and an 8% increase in other physical conditions compared to 34- to 36-year-olds in 2014.
The Blue Cross Blue Shield report is here: https://www.bcbs.com/the-health-of-america/reports/the-health-of-millennials.
The only reasonable explanation for the alarming decline in health of the millennial generation is the life-long irradiation of their brains and bodies from their cell phones.
On the evening of May 23, 2019, Elon Musk’s company SpaceX launched its first 60 “Starlink” satellites into low orbit around the Earth. The satellites were launched from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida on a Falcon 9 rocket. Musk announced his intention to carry out six more launches this year, each carrying 60 satellites, and that when the first 420 satellites are in orbit, they will be turned on and will begin providing global 5G service to SpaceX’s first customers. This could happen by the end of 2019.
SpaceX intends for its rockets to carry 120 satellites at a time into orbit beginning in 2020, and to complete its planned fleet of 12,000 satellites within a decade. SpaceX’s license from the U.S. Federal Communications Commission permits each satellite to emit an effective radiated power of up to 5 million watts.
SpaceX’s competitor, OneWeb, is not far behind. OneWeb launched the first 6 of its planned fleet of 4,540 satellites on February 27, 2019. It announced its intention to launch 36 satellites per month and to turn them on as soon as 648 satellites are in orbit. This could happen by the end of 2020.
On April 4, 2019, Amazon announced that it is planning to launch its own fleet of more than 3,000 5G satellites.
5G in Space is a planetary emergency, as outlined in the article of that title that I wrote a year ago: http://www.cellphonetaskforce.org/planetary-emergency. It is an emergency not just because of the direct radiation from the satellites, but because of the location of the satellites in the ionosphere. The ionosphere is an integral part of the global electrical circuit that animates all living things. Even a few hundred satellites using the enormous amount of bandwidth that is available in the millimeter wave spectrum is expected to pollute the global electrical circuit — and therefore our bodies — with what building biologists call dirty electricity. This is likely to be catastrophic to all life on Earth.
I am presently involved in an effort to open up lines of communication with the principals of the satellite projects, including Elon Musk. They care about the future of this planet too, and they mistakenly think they are doing good.
The Santa Fe Alliance for Public Health and Safety filed a lawsuit to stop 5G in U.S. District Court in New Mexico on December 21, 2018. We are asking the court to declare that city, state, and federal laws which deprive citizens of the right to protect themselves from harm, and deprive injured persons of any remedy for their injuries, are unconstitutional and void.
These laws violate the First Amendment rights to free speech and to petition the government for redress of grievances. These laws violate the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments because they deprive people of life, liberty and property without due process of law, and because they are a taking of property without just compensation. Our First Amended Complaint can be seen here: http://www.cellphonetaskforce.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/Doc-19-First-Amended-Complaint.pdf.
Signatures as of June 6, 2019

Global Research, June 03, 2019
Spare a thought for all the governments wanting to cash in on the multi-trillion-dollar bonanza of the fifth generation of wireless technology or 5G while pacifying the half of their population who are anxious about its dire health and environmental consequences and keeping in ignorance the other half of the population who do not yet oppose its introduction because they are uninformed about its dangers.
Various governments have adopted different strategies to tackle this challenge, any of which may serve as a template for other governments to use. Let us take some instructive examples from Austria, France, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States. Governments that have been dilatory in availing themselves of the surveillance and control potential of 5G to quash dissent may wish to choose a strategy from the following list that they feel is most compatible with the national character and situation of their country and therefore most likely to meet their need for a smooth and rapid 5G rollout.
Austria: brute force and public ignorance
The most advisable strategy for any cautious government is to ensure that the population remains uninformed of the dangers of 5G. This is relatively simple to achieve by using brute force to rapidly sign into law legislation forcing the entire population to accept “smart” meters with no possibility of refusal, as the Austrian government did in 2018, and issuing a Gesteznovelle or amendment to a law allowing 5G antennas to be installed on all public buildings, including nurseries, kindergartens and schools. This results in a quick 5G rollout, which can then be portrayed as a triumph in the race to digitalization and its claimed benefits of more jobs, faster downloads, low latency, fourth industrial revolution, core cloud, cutting edge technology, or any other similarly hyperbolic promotional rhetoric designed to con the public (or, in PR language, “capture the public imagination”).
Complicity with the media conveniently ensures that no whisper of the dangers inherent in a new and untested technology penetrates the public sphere. The population remains in ignorance, is not given the option to refuse 5G infrastructure and is propagandized to believe that their country is at the forefront of the modern age. This strategy has much to recommend it and avoids all controversy, long-winded debate, troublesome negotiations, annoying delays and unnecessary costs. Well done, Austria, for demonstrating how easy the 5G rollout can be when such a simple and highly effective strategy is adopted!
France: trickery and opportunism
France offers two possible strategies for rolling out 5G, each of which has great potential. France’s majority state-owned ENEDIS is steamrolling the French public with “smart” meters (called “Linky”) for the 5G Internet of Things, despite opposition from 71% of the population. Since 1884, electric meters belong to the municipalities of France, 906 of which, out of a total of 35,498 (2.5%) are refusing “smart” meters, a number that is constantly rising. The French population recognizes that “smart” meters are being imposed without their consent, with many complaints of trickery used by ENEDIS subcontractors, including some where the gendarmerie had to intervene to protect the citizenry.
If stealth and trickery should fail, another possibility is to take advantage of a national tragedy to impose 5G surreptitiously. While the nation is preoccupied mourning the loss of a much-loved historical monument, oligarchs – including those with close ties to telecommunications companies – have a whip round involving hundreds of millions of euros each to reconstruct rather than restore, your lawmakers announce the suspension of regulations regarding the protection of a national and world heritage site, and declare the legitimacy of rebuilding according to “the techniques and challenges of our era”. Any dissent expressed by historical experts or architects about the origins of the fire or the manner of rebuilding the monument is suppressed.
The public discovers only later that the ground on which the monument stood had already been subject to advance privatization plans before the terrible tragedyof its destruction and hey presto!, it can be rebuilt complete with modern technology suitable for the 5G rollout, especially appropriate and convenient given its central location as the “point zero” of France, from which all distances in the country are calculated.
Since France´s 5G rollout strategy is not yet complete, the above scenario remains at the level of speculation; only time will tell if indeed this strategy turns out to be the one employed. Whatever the case, it would have been a strong contender for most inventive strategy had it not been a longstanding and now rather tired strategy of disaster capitalism, these days greatly facilitated by the advent of directed energy weapons.

Switzerland´s public servants are to be commended for demonstrating a mental dexterity that has enabled them to solve the conundrum of introducing 5G while facing an educated and informed citizenry. It has provided a useful template for the benefit of similarly unfortunate governments. Switzerland´s approach involves the devious use of exclusion clauses and innocent-looking subparagraphs.
Switzerland follows the exposure levels set out in the so-called safety guidelines of the so-called International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (more about these “guidelines” and ICNIRP later). The problem for the Swiss government is that Switzerland has precautionary exposure levels for single transmitters (base stations) that are 10 times lower than the ICNIRP levels.
Having gone ahead and auctioned the available spectrum in the 700 MHz and 3.5 GHz bands in February 2019, netting US$380 million, the Swiss government was faced with the challenge of enabling the use of the spectrum it had sold by raising limits without alerting the public.
As the public and cantonal lawmakers gradually started to grasp the scale of the threat from the completely untested 5G, the federal government’s dilemma grew. First came a people´s petition to force a parliamentary debate on 5G signed by 56,000 Swiss, then the cantons of Vaud, Jura and Geneva adopted moratoria on the 5G rollout. These were closely followed by Neuchâtel, which posed a series of questions to the federal government regarding the safety of 5G technology.
Cantonal lawmakers and Swiss citizens were outraged when the majority state-owned Swisscom defied the opposition to 5G by using existing antennas installed for previous generations of wireless technology to impose 5G on 102 locations in Switzerland. They will doubtless be further outraged when they learn that Swisscom has known about the non-thermal effects of electromagnetic radiation since at least 2004, when it filed a patent on a method and system for reducing electro smog in wireless local networks. This reveals that Swisscom has rolled out 5G on the Swiss population in full knowledge of its ability to cause damage to DNA and increase cancer risk.
On 17 April, the federal government made its move to stymie the public opposition while enabling the 5G rollout. This constitutes a veritable primer on conning the public. It published a document modifying its 1999/2016 ordinance on protection against non-ionizing radiation (NIR), with effect from 1 June 2019. The beauty of this is that an ordinance cannot be challenged by a people´s referendum. The accompanying report helpfully explains the purpose and operation of the modifications.
Given that more than half the Swiss population considers the radiation emitted by mobile phone antennas to be dangerous or rather dangerous (Office fédéral de la statistique (OFS), Omnibus 2011, 2015), the modifications to the ordinance have two significant purposes: (1) to establish a system of monitoring public exposure to NIR (sect. 4.1.1) in accordance with the Aarhus Convention, which obliges ratifying states to inform the public about pollutants and their effects on people and the environment, and (2) to fill the gaps in regulation that impede the deployment of 5G (sect. 2).
Point 1, the monitoring system, sounds promising until we are told later on in the report that the Federal Office for the Environment (OFEV) would be tasked with informing the public periodically of the extent of their exposure to NIR and the state of the science on the effects of NIR, but that no coordination with the Federal Office of Public Safety would be required since “no biological marker or modification of a biological marker presenting a link with NIR or its effects on health has been identified to date [sic]” (sect. 4.1.1).
The great advantage of this strategy, we are told, is that the public would thereby be informed “in an objective manner about its exposure to NIR and its origin, and the current margin as compared to the limits set out in the ordinance, which would contribute to taking the passion out of the debate and the perception of risk”. And most satisfyingly, OFEV would always be in a position to justify to the public why the current exposure limits were in line with science and testing (sect. 4.1.2). In other words, it would be a closed circle and no examination of the real health and environmental dangers of NIR would be possible.
Point 2 is equally a master-stroke, for filling in the gaps in regulations that impede the deployment of 5G turns out to mean that the modified ordinance should include a principle of evaluation of “beam-forming” antennas and that “mobile phone antennas that emit during less than 800 hours per annum” should be exempted from the requirement to “respect the preventative exposure limits” (sect. 2).
This sleight of hand enables the federal government to exclude all 5G antennas from regulation, since they are all beam-forming and, if their emissions are calculated on the basis of their “directionality”, as implied by the chap. 62, additional subpara. 6, which states that “[The term] beam-forming antennas is intended to mean the radiating direction or the antenna pattern is adjusted automatically at short intervals”, it appears that it could be not the entirety of the emissions that would be subject to calculation, but solely each direction of emission. 800 hours would permit two months of emissions per annum per stationary antenna, but if each degree of emission of, for example, 180 degrees of movement of a directional antenna were to be permitted 800 hours, then no 5G antenna, all of which are directional, could exceed 800 hours of emissions and therefore none would come within the ambit of the modified ordinance.
Et voilà! As if by magic, the Swiss federal government checkmates the Swiss people and their cantonal governments to enable 5G!
It is to be noted here that, thanks to the diligence of Swiss NGO Gigaherz, Swiss telephone companies have already been caught in the act of illegally irradiating the Swiss people, when antennas hidden under manhole covers were found in 2018 to be transmitting way in excess of their permitted limits.
Who would know if the millions of beam-forming antennas throughout Switzerland were exceeding the permitted exposure limits or transmitting in excess of 800 hours? Would anyone want to risk exposure by taking up position within their vicinity, given that the new beam-forming antennas are “especially used with the high frequencies auctioned in early 2019” (sect. 4.3)?
No wonder Switzerland is famous for its high-class and high-tech products! Its skill and meticulousness in drafting such a Byzantine 5G rollout strategy trumps all!
United Kingdom: strict legalism and authoritative assertions
The United Kingdom can always be relied upon for its professed adherence to the rule of law. Thus enquirers as to the safety of 5G, both members of the public and parliamentarians, are treated to lengthy disquisitions on the reliability of the so-called science produced by the various official bodies responsible for assuring the public that they are duly protected from electromagnetic radiation (EMR). As in the popular British children´s party-game, this may be termed a “pass-the-parcel” strategy and is greatly facilitated by the existence of a large number of organizations with acronyms that may be conveniently juggled as needed.
Answers to questions in parliament or from the public are drafted along the following lines: Public Health England relies on AGNIR [if this body has unfortunately been disbanded due to allegations of conflict of interest, incompetence, lack of qualified experts, falsified science or any other reason, the name of another body such as ICNIRP or SCENIHR may be substituted here] to supply the scientific evidence showing the safety of wireless telecommunications technologies since [add appropriate date]. The World Health Organization endorses the safety guidelines set forth by [name of body] in setting its EMR safety guidelines. Should Public Health England be made aware of any changes in the science, it will amend its policies accordingly.
It may easily be seen that the UK strategy is an astute one since it serves simultaneously to impress and mystify, for no one has any clue as to the meaning of the various acronyms or the tainted reputations of the various bodies named, especially when they hail from another country. Such is the case, for example, with the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection or ICNIRP, which is in reality just a little club of male scientists in Germany that appoints its own members without supervision or consultation with anyone and mysteriously receives funding from, and is housed by, the German government, conveniently in the same building with the German Federal Office for Radiation Protection. Nor would any UK citizen be likely to wonder how it came to be that the little club´s guidelines were adopted and endorsed not only by the UN´s World Health Organization, but also by its International Telecommunication Union.
Great work, United Kingdom! Deceiving the public while sounding sincere and trustworthy is quite an achievement. A note of caution, though, for other governments considering employing a similar strategy: it does necessitate a certain level of gullibility among the general public and is therefore unlikely to be effective in the case of populations already skeptical about government pronouncements.
United States: big spending by lobbyists to enable capture of government agencies
As may be expected of the United States, the preferred 5G rollout strategy involves money and muscle. The imposition of 5G without public consent or consultation was made possible long in advance by regulatory capture by industry, which ensured that laws were changed to prohibit injury to health and environmental damage being taken into account to prevent or hinder the rollout of 5G.
President Clinton signed into law the 1996 Telecommunications Act, section 704 of which states that no health or environmental concern can interfere with the placement of telecom equipment such as cell towers and antennas. Wireless facilities have been made a permitted use in all public rights-of-way, with the intention of locating them directly in front of homes and businesses and close above the heads of pedestrians, including mothers with babies. Public notice requirements and public hearings have been eliminated. Local authorities are prohibited from taking into consideration testimony from scientific experts. For example, local governments are prohibited from regulating wireless technology “on the basis of the environmental effects of radio frequency radiation”, and courts have reversed regulatory decisions about cell tower placement simply because most of the public testimony was about health.
Combined with corporate control of the media, preferably by telecommunications companies, and manipulation of lawmakers by armies of highly paid lobbyists, the strategy of regulatory capture is much to be admired, since – barring the appearance of a lawmaker with integrity and the existence of alternative media – it becomes almost impossible for the public to learn that 5G was never tested for health or safety and poses an existential threat to the entire planet.
In a country such as the US that believes itself a bastion of freedom, the public are unlikely to find plausible the idea that they are being hoodwinked in this way over such a dangerous technology and the 5G rollout may therefore be expected to proceed relatively unhindered. Should any information on the adverse effects of 5G leak out, recourse may be made to the oft-used and handy “blame-it-on-the-Russians” narrative. It should be noted, however, that this strategy requires considerable advance planning and the easy availability of funds sufficient to make your point of view the only one visible to lawmakers. It will therefore not be within the means of all countries. Nevertheless, this one has to qualify for the prize in the “heavy-handed but effective” category.
International aid and assistance
Implementation of the above strategies is likely to be facilitated by recourse to the assistance of international organizations. If the aim is to impose a global telecommunications technology capable of “blanketing” the Earth, as stated in the literature on 5G, especially one involving transmissions by satellites, it would be indispensable to enlist the aid of the United Nations. An appropriate Secretary-General would have to be appointed, preferably someone benefitting from a professional background as an electrical engineer and physicist. Timing here is all, for such an opportunity arises only once every eight years.
Should 5G proponents be successful in this, they would have struck gold, for a UN Secretary-General can guide all of the organization´s activities in the desired direction, ensuring that 5G deployment feeds into the implementation of all treaties and conventions and thus becomes seen as a sine qua non in all resulting policy-making activities.
The UN Secretary-General also has the prerogative of “spontaneously” appointing, for example, an international Panel on Digital Cooperation, which could include all the international proponents of 5G in one go, while conveniently excluding any difficult people such as scientists or physicians knowledgeable about the deleterious biological effects of EMR. The Panel´s terms of reference would want to ensure its separation from the usual work of the UN, again obviating time-wasting questions that might be posed by UN officials or other concerned experts. The members of the Panel would automatically gain access to all UN member states, thereby profiting from the opportunity of one-sidedly convincing them of the benefits of 5G while conveniently failing to mention any possible downsides to the technology.
Should anyone have the temerity to raise objections to the UN’s failure to even mention the word “health” in the context of its rush to embrace 5G in all its programs and to assist in its imposition on every inch of the planet as well as in space, the cooperation agreement between Interpol and the UN’s International Telecommunication Union may be usefully invoked to intimidate such a person as a potential cybercriminal.
The generally favorable worldwide public view of UN activities combined with universal ignorance about those activities and their purposes makes seeking such international assistance distinctly advantageous.
A smorgasbord of opportunities for rolling out 5G
I hope it is clear by now to all the governments reading this primer on the world´s most effective 5G rollout strategies that they have a smorgasbord of opportunities and support available to them for implementing 5G. Excuses regarding opposition from namby-pamby scientists and physicians across the world complaining about the lack of health and safety testing of 5G, citing the tens of thousands of studies that demonstrate the biological effects of EMR, or calling 5G the stupidest idea in the history of the world will not be tolerated.
Nor will excuses regarding pockets of opposition from nationals of your countries who cite phenomenal rises in all the major diseases of civilization since the advent of wireless technology and smartphones, plus ADHD, autism, suicides, depression, neurological diseases, and catastrophic decreases in fertility across the planet, as well as major declines in insect populations.
5G IS A GOOD THING BECAUSE WE SAY SO AND YOU WILL DO AS YOU HAVE BEEN INSTRUCTED OR LIVE TO REGRET IT WHEN WE CONTROL EVERYTHING
