Tops grocery store in Buffalo New York, the site of a racially motivated terrorist attack on 05/14/2022

As news reports continue to trickle in about today’s(05/14/22) shooting at a Tops grocery store in Buffalo New York, a troubling picture of the suspect is emerging and that is, he was steeped in the kind of White nationalism we are increasingly witnessing in populist Europe, and at home with Trump’s GOP. The common theme among these budding White nationalism movements is their belief in the so-called “replacement theory”–a belief that there is a global conspiracy to replace/eliminate White people. This naturally instills in them a deep-seated hate of immigrants and non-Whites generally. NBC law enforcement analyst Jim Cavanaugh made a bombshell observation on American Voices show, telling host Alicia Menendez that this replacement theory rhetoric and the associated White nationalism screeds were commonplace in Trump’s White House, a startling revelation indeed.

Host Alicia Menendez(video at 4:02):“Jim, officials say that they believe that the suspect acted alone. How are they going to confirm that?”

Jim Cavanaugh:“It’s going to be what we[law enforcement] call like a psychological autopsy. We go back and we look at all of his telephone, computer, all of his contacts. He’s going to have contacts on the web, Alicia. He’s going to be reading the White supremacist websites, there’s many of them out there, and he’s going to have read them, maybe even posted on them, and he’s talking to these like-minded people like this is all okay. And of course he’s probably railing against immigrants–this is another thing where the DA or the police chief mentioned, the screeds about immigration, these White hate books. There’s a screed from Europe called “The Camp of The Saints”, and it’s just a horrendously racist book about immigrants to Europe. It was passed all over the White House when Trump was president, everybody’s reading it like it’s some book to read, I mean it’s just garbage, and they put this out in these White supremacist circles and these people read it, and they start to believe it, and what it does is it denigrates immigrants, anybody of color…That’s why the constant talk about the immigrants at the border is really coming right from this White nationalist perspective…”

You’ll remember the Trump administration was notoriously anti-immigrant, so this bombshell revelation about a White nationalist screed being circulated at his White House raises a whole host of questions as to whether racism was driving force behind his administration’s immigration policy. The anti-immigrant sentiment within the GOP remains strong even with Trump outside the White House, so it will be interesting to see how congressional Republicans and their allies on Fox News(looking at you, Tucker Carlson), respond to this White nationalist screed bombshell. Just the other day there was a news report saying Fox News’ Tucker Carlson show was a hit among White nationalists, and specifically, that the show’s segments dealing with the border/immigration draw the highest ratings.

Bottom line folks, it would foolhardy for anyone to argue that we do not have an immigration problem in the United States. Reasonable people will agree that our immigration system is broken, and has been for decades, largely due to our equally broken Congress(dithering on a permanent legislative fix). But having said that, it is impossible to ignore the racism that has emerged within Trump’s GOP, when it comes to immigration. One only hopes that this horrendous terrorist attack in Buffalo New York, will ignite a serious discussion about the replacement theory rhetoric that belies Trump GOP’s immigration policies.

WaPo’s Taylor Lorenz Addresses Charges That She Doxxed A Conservative Twitter Influencer

$upport via Cash App

Washington Post’s Columnist Taylor Lorenz has caused a lot of uproar from conservatives after she published identifying details about the creator of a prominent conservative influencer on Twitter. Conservatives have since lashed out at Lorenz, accusing her of unethical doxxing. Lorenz denies the doxxing accusations, arguing that because the Twitter account in question(“Libs of TikTok”) is used to go after LGBTQ personalities, knowledge of the person behind the account is newsworthy. She appeared on CNN’s Reliable Sources(04/24/22) to defend her position.

Host Brian Stelter(video at 3:05):“So there are several arguments against your article. One is that this person’s identity is simply not newsworthy, that it doesn’t matter who this anonymous conservative woman is, and that you naming her is targeting her, trying to hurt her. What do you say to those folks?”

Taylor Lorenz:“Well, first of all, this woman is targeting LGBTQ folks. I mean, she brags about getting multiple teachers fired. The entire goal of the account is to direct hate to Trans and LGBTQ people. She has said that she doesn’t believe gay people who come out should be allowed to teach children, she attacked the Trevor Project calling it a ‘groomer’ organization, so I don’t know what she’s talking about in that sense…I think you can have concern about what your children are learning in school, and not follow an LGBTQ hate account that the whole goal is to get Trans and LGBTQ people sort of excluded from public life, and drive these very harmful narratives around Trans people…Those are two very very very very different things. She’s also talked about mobilizing her base to run for local school boards, and is collecting email lists which 100% are going to be used for political purposes, so this is a political force, this is an influential media force, the idea that this woman is not newsworthy is nonsense…I cover influencers for a living and I’m telling you this woman is more influential than a lot of people that I cover…the right will make those arguments because they don’t want scrutiny.”

So there you have it, folks. Team “Libs of TiKTok” is claiming unethical doxxing by WaPo’s Taylor Lorenz, and TeamLorenz is countering with the argument that “Libs of TikTok”, and right wingers generally, are simply afraid of legitimate scrutiny.

$1 million question now is, what does TeamPublic think?

Tulsi Gabbard Issues Cease And Desist Letters Against Senator Romney, Keith Olbermann

$upport via Cash App

Former Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard appeared on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson show (04/20/22) where she revealed that she has issued cease and desist letters to Senator Mitt Romney(R-UT) and liberal media personality Keith Olbermann over treason accusations leveled at her by the two, for what they perceive as her support for Russia. Gabbard said treason is one of the most serious crimes in the United States, adding that the invocation of such a serious crime by Sen Romney and Olbermann, is only intended to scare her(and others), into silence–the so-called “chilling effect”. As you know, a cease and desist letter is a precursor to a lawsuit, so she’s basically telling Romney and Olbermann, “knock it off, or I’ll see you in federal court.”

Gabbard told host Tucker Carlson(video at 0:42): “As you mentioned, I still serve in the U.S. Army Reserves today, I’m a Lieutenant Colonel, and 19 years ago when I enlisted in the military, I took an oath to support and defend our constitution. I took that very same oath when I was elected to serve in Congress, where I served for 8 years. Senator Mitt Romney has taken that oath, as has every other member of Congress who has had the priviledge of serving, and if Mitt Romney had read the constitution, he would know that treason, the crime that he is accusing me of, that is punishable by death, is so serious, that our founders deemed it to be the only crime worthy of being defined in our constitution. So the situation we are facing here is a very serious one, not because its about me, but because it has a much bigger impact on our country. When powerful and influential people basically threaten and intimidate people into silence, as Mitt Romney, Keith Olbermann and others are doing, they are hoping to achieve that effect, that if anybody dare speak out against the government, that if anybody dares criticize whatever the permanent Washington establishment’s narrative is, then you’ll be smeared as a treasonous traitor”

So what do you think? Is Tulsi Gabbard right in standing up for freedom of speech, especially unpopular speech, or do you think the treason accusations are justified?

Pompeo Slams Biden Admin For “Allowing China To Walk All Over Them” In The South Pacific

$upport via Cash App

Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo appeared on Fox News’ Ingraham Angle show(04/21/22) to discuss among other things, reports this week that China has signed a security pact with the strategically located Solomon Islands in the South Pacific. Pompeo slammed the Biden administration over this, saying they are “allowing China to walk all over them.” He added that China will “park missiles” in the Solomon Islands, and could in the future use this strategic location to block trade routes that are important to the United States.

Pompeo specifically told host Ingraham(video at 1:20):“The Chinese have been trying to expand their footprint in the Pacific, and in particular, the South Pacific for an awfully long time. They began by building out a set of islands called the Spratlys. They put military bases on there after they promised President Obama they wouldn’t, and when they did, he did literally nothing. The Solomon Islands and other Islands in the Pacific are places where they can park missile systems, naval bases, other naval capabilities that they can use to foreclose trade, all of the important trade that moves through all of the South Pacific into the Eastern Pacific, into places that matter an awful lot to the United States of America. It’s why China is so focused on it, it’s why in the Trump administration we worked so diligently to try and build out alliances with those countries. The Biden administration has allowed China to walk all over them throughout the entire Pacific.”

Pompeo went on to add(video at 2:30):“I don’t think they[China]respect or fear the United States under the leadership of President Obama and the team…This administration hasn’t shown the same resolve and the same capacity to deter aggression that we did for 4 years…The Chinese Communist Party presents the single greatest external risk to the United States of America from any place in the world…We need to lead the effort to make sure that the Chinese Communist Party doesn’t dominate global trade and dominate the global economy in the years and decades ahead. We can do it, but it takes American leadership.”

Bottom line folks, even though reasonable people will agree that Trump GOP is currently mired in frivolity(fights with Disney, hyperventilating over CRT, going after transgender athletes etc), the China issue remains one of the few legitimate arguments they still have. Simply put, the United States cannot allow a perception to fester out there, that China is always running us over. So you ask, “Why should we care about such a perception”? Look no further than the current Russia-Ukraine war. Make no mistake about it, Putin invaded Ukraine because (1) he knows he has China’s support and (2) the United States has demonstrated no willingness to confront China in any way out of fear of “disturbing our trade ties”. This dynamic has to change. We need to make China respect and fear the United States, not just for our own national security sake, but also to deter autocrats around the world who have figured out that they can commit atrocities while hiding under China’s umbrella.

Pressure Mounting On GOP Senator Mike Lee To Come Clean Over His Role In Overturning 2020 Election

$upport via Cash App

Interesting segment on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow show(04/19/22) looked into the intense pressure building on Senator Mike Lee(R-UT) from his hometown newspapers, for him to come clean over his involvement with efforts to assist former President Trump to overturn the 2020 elections, and specifically, his role in the fake electors scheme. As Maddow correctly pointed out, public statements attributed to Sen Lee regarding Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 elections are in stark contrast with his newly released private text messages, which clearly show his deep involvement with the fake electors scheme.

It appears Sen Lee’s hometown newspapers have seized on this glaring discrepancy between public “constitutional conservative” Mike Lee, and private insurrectionist Mike Lee, and are demanding that the Senator finally come clean about his involvement with Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 elections. The newspapers have zeroed in on the Utah State Republican Convention scheduled for Saturday(04/23/22, for Sen Lee to finally come clean about this issue.

Maddow referenced an editorial from a leading Utah newspaper(video at 4:15): “Just today, the Salt Lake Tribune has released a new editorial under this headline, Saturday’s Utah State Republican Convention would be a great place for Mike Lee to come clean…It’s past time for Mike Lee to start fessing up to all he knows about the plot to set aside the results of an honest and fair election in order to keep Donald Trump in power. We know Utah’s Senior Senator had a much greater role in that plot than he has previously acknowledged. His constituents deserve a much more detailed accounting of what went on and the extent of Senator Lee’s participation in it. Yesterday would be a great time for Senator Lee to come clean. Saturday’s State Republican Convention would be a really good opportunity for that too.”

Bottom line folks, it is very encouraging to see the media in Utah pressuring Senator Lee to come clean about his involvement with Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election. To date, there has been been very little individual accountability for members of Congress who were clearly involved in Trump’s illegal efforts to overturn the 2020 elections and hopefully, this is the beginning of some much overdue reckoning for members of Congress. It would be great if Texas newspapers would also inquire into whether public “constitutional conservative” Ted Cruz was likewise, a private insurrectionist.

Is Locking Out MTG From The 2022 Ballot A Template For Locking Out Trump In 2024?

$upport via Cash App

Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene on the Tucker Carlson Show(04/18/22)

A rattled Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene(R-GA) appeared on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson show(04/18/22) where she lashed out at liberals for what she characterized as an effort to rip her name off the ballot, and steal her district’s ability to reelect her to Congress. What Rep Greene(aka MTG) is referring to, is a lawsuit filed by liberals, that seeks to bar her from running for reelection because she aided and abetted the January 6th insurrection. Her rattled appearance on Tucker Carlson’s show is explainable because it not only appears that the lawsuit may be headed for success, but also because establishment GOP is not offering her a helping hand. Simply put, MTG has reason to be worried about her future in Congress, even before a single vote is cast.

An elephant in the room question that has arisen from the MTG challenge, is the effect if any, it may have on others who aided and abetted the insurrectionists? The biggest question of course, is whether successfully locking out MTG from the ballot could be a template for locking out…idk…some guy in Palm Beach Florida, out of the GOP presidential contest?

Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene specifically told host Tucker Carlson(video at 0:38):“These people[liberals]hate the people in my district so much, they look down on them because they voted for me and sent me to Washington to fight for the things that most Americans care about, like secure borders, stopping abortion, protecting our second amendment, stopping the out of control spending in Washington, and stop funding never-ending foreign wars, and all the insanity that takes place in Washington. Well, I went there and I have been fighting it and now the Progressives, the people that donate to dark money groups, you know, the 501(c)(3)s and the foundations, they’ve hired up some attorneys from New York who hate the people in my district, and don’t believe that they should have the right to elect who they want to send to Washington, which is me. I have overwhelming support in my district and I’m so thankful for all of them. Well now they’ve filed a lawsuit, because they’re trying to rip my name off of the ballot, and steal my district’s ability to reelect me and send me back to Congress.”

Asked by host Tucker Carlson whether she was getting any help from the GOP establishment, Rep Greene responded, “Not yet. I’m on my own to defend myself…I have to protect myself. I have to go to court on Friday and actually be questioned about something[January6th]I’ve never been charged with, and something I was completely against.”

There’s no other way to interpret Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene’s remarks on Tucker Carlson’s show other than, she is completely rattled by the lawsuit, which she’s finally realizing, presents a real threat to her future in Congress. She’s also clearly surprised(not sure why), that no one from the GOP establishment is rushing to her aid.

Bottom line folks, the outcome of this MTG challenge may have far reaching implications, chief among them, whether former President Trump can be similarly locked out of the 2024 ballot. Hmm, we’ll see what happens.

Kushner Accused Of Selling U.S. Intel To The Saudis

$upport via Cash App

Investigative journalist Vicky Ward appeared on MSNBC Reports(04/16/22) where she dropped a mega bombshell, telling host Alex Witt that Jared Kushner, while working at the White House, shared top secret U.S. intelligence with then Deputy Crown Prince Mohamed bin Salman(MBS), which enabled MBS to undermine his cousin who was then Crown Prince, and take over his position. In other words, it is Kushner’s top secret intel that made MBS the Crown Prince. Vicky Ward says the recent $2 billion Saudi investment into Kushner’s private equity firm, is basically payback from MBS for the top secret U.S. Intel which enabled him to get rid of his cousin and become Saudi’s Crown Prince.

Vicky Ward specifically told host Alex Witt(video at 1:10): “Jared Kushner has no track record as an investor. Zero. He was in the real estate business before going into the White House, and as I wrote in Kushner Inc, he wasn’t very good at it. Also as I reported in Kushner Inc, it appears that much of his foreign policy was orchestrated for the benefit of the family real estate business which was in trouble. Why now has MBS given his fund with no track record, $2 billion to invest? Well last night, I broke news on my substack newsletter Vicky Ward Investigates, saying that basically Jared Kushner, according to three very well placed sources with direct knowledge, handed over to MBS and his father, American intelligence suggesting that a cousin of MBS, who has long had the support of Washington, who is considered a hero by the CIA, even given a medal, was thinking of sticking up his hand and deposing the king. This was the man who was the Crown Prince at the time. Jared Kushner basically handed the Saudis this information thereby giving Mohamed bin Salman the opportunity to get rid of his rival, knee cap him. This man has not been heard of since 2020. So basically, Jared Kushner gave information that was supposed to belong to the Americans to the Saudis thereby giving Mohamed bin Salman his job as the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia.”

There’s no other way to interpret Vicky Ward’s remarks on MSNBC other than, Jared Kushner, who had access to top level U.S. intelligence due to his White House job, knew that MBS’ cousin who at that time was Saudi’s Crown Prince, and favored by the CIA, had plans to depose the Saudi King. Kushner leaked this top secret U.S. intel to Mohamed bin Salman(MBS) and his father, allowing MBS to get rid of his ambitious cousin, who has mysteriously disappeared since 2020, and is quite possibly dead. Basically Kushner gave intel to MBS, which allowed him to become the Saudi Crown Prince, and now MBS is rewarding him with a $2 billion investment. Kushner basically sold top secret U.S. intel to the Saudis. Vicky Ward went on to add that this was the reason Kushner never got a top secret security clearance from the CIA for his White House job. This, if verified, is mega bombshell news that deserves much more scrutiny than the Hunter Biden story.

Bottom line folks, as Yours Truly has been screaming since March 2019, Kushner selling top secret U.S. intel is a BFD that needs to be thoroughly investigated. It is infinitely, a much bigger story that the Hunter Biden story, especially given the amount of money involved.

Rep Liz Cheney All But Admits Trump Committed Crimes Re January 6th Insurrection

$upport via Cash App

Rep Liz Cheney(R-WY) appeared on CNN’s State of The Union show (04/10/22) where she all but admitted that the evidence currently in possession of the January6th Committee, would support a finding that former President Trump engaged in criminal conduct as related to the January 6th insurrection. Even though Rep Liz Cheney is limited as to what she can disclose publicly, given her position as Vice Chair of the January 6th Committee, there is no question that her response to host Jake Tapper’s question as to whether she believed Trump’s conduct was criminal, was a resounding yes.

Host Jake Tapper(video at 7:07 onwards):“You are the Vice Chair of the January 6th Committee. The New York Times is reporting this morning that your committee has concluded that you have enough evidence to make a criminal referral for President Trump to the Justice Department for obstructing an official proceeding and for conspiracy to defraud the United States. Is that true, do you have enough evidence to refer Trump for criminal charges?”

Rep Liz Cheney: “We have not made a decision about referrals on the committee. I think that it is absolutely the case, it’s absolutely clear that what President Trump was doing, what a number of people around him were doing, that they knew it was unlawful, they did it anyway. I think you certainly saw that in the decision that was issued by Judge Carter a few weeks ago, where he concluded that it was more likely than not that the President of the United States was engaged in criminal activity. I think what we have seen is a massive and well organized and well planned effort that used multiple tools to try to overturn an election. You’ve seen just in the last few days a plea agreement from one of the leaders of the Proud Boys which lays out in really chilling detail the extent to which violence was planned, the extent to which the message that went out on December 19th about the rally in Washington–and don’t forget Donald Trump tweeted out that message ‘be there, be wild’–that the day after that message, the organization and the planning started, and that they understood that they were going to attempt to use violence to try to stop the transfer of power. That is the definition of an insurrection and it is absolutely chilling.”

There is no other way to interpret Rep Cheney’s remarks other than, former President Trump, and his insurrectionists planned, and understood very clearly that on January 6th, they were going to use violence to stop the certification of President Biden’s electoral college victory, and that this conduct fits both of the criminal schemes pointed out by host Jake Tapper.

Bottom line the only question remaining now is whether (1) the January 6th Committee will make that criminal referral and (2) whether Garland’s DOJ will act on it. It cannot be left unsaid that if the January 6th Committee were to make a criminal referral against former President Trump, and Garland’s DOJ chose not to act on it, this will represent one of the biggest failures of the U.S. Justice department in modern DOJ history. It will essentially cement the running perception that Trump is for all intents and purposes, above the law– a sad state of affairs indeed.

Briefing By AOC & Fellow Dems On Banning Stock Trading By Members Of Congress

$upport via Cash App

Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez(D-NY) joined fellow Democrats for a briefing(04/07/22) on their push to ban stock trading by members of Congress. Others on the briefing were Senator Jeff Merkley(D-OR), Rep Joe Neguse(D-CO), Rep Rashida Tlaib(D-MI), Rep Abigail Spanberger(D-VA), Rep Pramila Jayapal(D-WA), Rep Andy Kim(D-NJ) and Rep Angie Craig(D-MN).

Rep Ocasio-Cortez said banning stock trading by members of Congress will not only address legitimate concerns about conflicts of interest, but that it would also tackle the other urgent problem involving crisis of faith in our institutions. She said: “We are also tackling a crisis of faith in our institutions in the United States, and that exploitation of that crisis of faith is a direct threat to our democracy, as we have seen over the last two to four years. It is our responsibility to ensure that we eliminate that perception of impropriety, because it is these perceptions that can be exploited to undermine our most sacred institutions.”

The final speaker, the epitome of “save the best for last”, was Minnesota’s Rep Angie Craig(remember that name folks, vivacious Angie is going up the Dem ladder). She said: “My background experience in this issue is I actually sat on a corporate executive team for 12 years before I came to Congress, and this is not hypothetical to me, it’s not hypothetical. I helped run the investor relations department of a major fortune 500 company. I know that information moves markets, and it moves stocks. That’s why when I first got here, I wrote something called the Humble Act, which as part of it, would ban members of Congress from owning individual stocks. And it’s also not hypothetical to me because before I was sworn in to Congress, I had stock from the company I had worked for for 12 years. I had stock options from that company as well. Every single one of those shares were sold in the open market before I stepped foot into the U.S. Capitol, every single one. And if we can’t find 535 people in the damn United States of America, who are willing to give up their personal stock portfolio in order to serve their constituents, then shame on us, just shame on us.”

Bottom line folks, as some of the speakers here pointed out, banning stock trading by members of Congress should be a no-brainer, and no Democrat should be opposed to it. Opposing a stock trading ban for members of Congress is bad optics, bad morally, bad politics, and a sure loser at the polls this Fall. It’s really that simple.

Havana Syndrome: The Less Talked About Public Health Angle

$upport via Cash App

Dr Beatrice Golomb, Founder of the Golomb Research Group, and Professor of Medicine at UC San Diego.

While the investigation into who’s attacking our diplomats and causing Havana Syndrome is still ongoing, a different but related debate is playing out in American living rooms, and that is, what the federal government is doing to protect the general public from the health effects of exposure to radio frequency(RF) radiation, which includes microwaves.

A Havana Syndrome webinar conducted by the University of Texas Southwest(UTSW) in Dallas(02/10/2022) led to among other conclusions that (1) pulsed microwave radiation was the most likely cause for Havana Syndrome and (2) that microwave technology is already being used in the United States, Russia, China, and many of our Western allies for surveillance purposes. Therefore even setting aside the question as to who attacked our Diplomats in Havana and elsewhere, reasonable people will agree that there needs to be a serious debate regarding the effects these microwave technologies have on the general public.

An interesting and quite informative interview on Green Street Radio (03/01/22) featuring the esteemed Dr Beatrice Golomb, delved into that very topic–harmful effects of microwaves and other RF radiation. Dr Golomb is the Director of the Golomb Research Group. She is currently a Professor of medicine at UC San Diego. She received her B.S. in Physics Summa Cum Laude from USC. She worked at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory as an Engineer, and then got her PhD in Biology and a medical degree from UC San Diego. She is an expert in among other things, the effects of exposure to radio frequency microwave radiation, which many experts have pinpointed as the most likely cause for Havana Syndrome.

Dr Golomb said in the Green Street Radio interview(video @ 17:00 onwards): “Radiation is often divided into two different types–ionizing radiation and non-ionizing radiation. Ionizing radiation is the radiation in the higher end of the frequency range, from part the ultraviolet range up to things like x-rays and gamma rays. This is referred to as ionizing because higher frequencies are associated with higher energy, and when the energy is high enough, it is sufficient to dislodge electrons from atoms and molecules. This is referred to as ionization. So there is sort of a mantra that is incorrect, that it is only ionizing radiation that can cause damage, or only ionizing radiation that can cause DNA damage. In fact most of the evidence about the harms from ionizing radiation come not from the ionization, but actually from oxidative stress…In fact, oxidative stress also occurs with non-ionizing radiation. It occurs with radio frequency radiation which by the way encompasses a very broad set of frequencies, the upper end of which are called microwave radiation. So microwaves are a subset of radio waves…All of those frequencies are capable of causing damage by oxidative stress…The exposures that are tied to these non-ionizing radiation…are exposures that themselves promote oxidative stress…affect mitochondria[DNA]…There are now multiple studies showing that even though this radiation[microwave] is designated as non-ionizing radiation, it causes DNA injury…There’s basically a disinformation campaign that tells people that unless radiation is ionizing it can’t cause problems.”

There is no other way to interpret Dr Golomb’s remarks other than, the government’s stance that only ionizing radiation can cause harmful health effects is not entirely accurate. Dr Golomb is stating categorically that non-ionizing radiation, which includes RF microwaves, can also be very harmful to the public, and can even cause, in her words, “DNA injury”. According to Dr Golomb, the dispositive factor when it comes to evaluating the harm caused by radiation is not whether its ionizing or non-ionizing, but rather, whether it causes “oxidative stress”. Dr Golomb says both ionizing and non-ionizing radiation can lead to oxidative stress, meaning even RF microwaves are harmful to the public.

Dr Golomb goes as far as accusing the government of running a “disinformation campaign” when it says non-ionizing radiation like RF microwaves are not harmful. Back in 2015, she wrote a stern letter to the New York Times, castigating one of its journalists(George Johnson) for downplaying the health effects of EMF radiation in one of his articles. Folks, Dr Golomb isn’t fooling around–the real deal!!

There’s a growing sentiment in the country that given the rapid advancement in technologies, the federal government is not doing a good job in informing the public about the public health risks associated with such advancements. One classic example is the Havana Syndrome. In the course of looking for the culprits who attacked our diplomats in Cuba, we have discovered that microwaves are also used in the U.S., presumably by law enforcement, for surveillance purposes. Given Dr. Golomb’s educated assertion that microwave radiation can cause “DNA injury”, it’s not a lot to ask that the government levels with the public as to how these microwave surveillance technologies affect public health. In other words, if you expose a “dangerous subject” to very high levels of microwave radiation daily, for an extended period of time(months, even years), as part of his/her “necessary surveillance”, are you really surveilling the target or just irradiating them to death? Simply put, guardrails need to erected when it comes to the use of these microwave technologies.

On that front, it’s very encouraging to learn that the good folks at Green Street Radio, through their non-profit Americans for Responsible Technology(ART), have filed a petition with the FDA, demanding that the agency “immediately issue an ‘Imminent Hazard’ declaration regarding public exposure to radiofrequency radiation from wireless devices and infrastructure…” Hopefully this is the beginning of a movement by concerned citizens demanding more government accountability when it comes to new radiation technologies.

Bottom line folks, the government cannot/must not be allowed to continue hiding behind the “it’s classified” excuse when it comes to RF radiation technologies. The public has a right to know what they are being exposed to, and how such exposure affects their health. Congress needs to hold hearings regarding this issue, preferably with the esteemed Dr. Golomb as one of the subject matter experts.
