a repost:Before You Write Another ‘Millennial’ Thinkpiece, Understand Black Millennials Don’t Have it as Good As Their White Counterparts

From Generation Xers to Baby Boomers, it has become en vogue to generalize millennials, those born between the early ’80s and mid-to-late ’90s. Millennials have been framed as lazy, whiny, entitled, obnoxious, soft, incurious, Internet-addicted grown babies severely lacking in emotional and mental toughness. Many people are attracted to these simplistic sweeping dissections of young adults because we can all personally identify someone who fits that mold in our own lives. Truth is, we do live in a society where the perception of profundity is more predicated on an individual anecdotal assessment rather than an all-encompassing, fact-based analysis.

When generalizing about millennials, many don’t bother to differentiate between race, class or gender, erasing the very real divide faced in particular by Black millennials. The culturally myopic idea that we’re all the same and can be analyzed under the same umbrella is rooted in the same troubling ideology that views the white Western middle-class reality as the shared standard for everyone. It’s impossible for that to lend itself to a qualitative analysis when even within the Black millennial population, there are multiple existing intersections that create different realities for different young adults.

Although there are challenges that millennials face that have cross-cultural significance, such as the price of college tuition rising faster than inflation, 51 percent of millennials being underemployed and fears of never being able to get out of debt, that does not mean that the problem is equally felt by each racial group in a similar way. The truth is, Black millennials are facing problems that differentiate them from their peers.

A BYP100 report authored by Jon Rogowski, an assistant professor in the Department of Government at Harvard University, and Cathy J. Cohen, a professor of political science at the University of Chicago, specifically outlines how America’s legacy of systemic racism has affected Black youths in various aspects, leaving them far more vulnerable to socioeconomic hardships than their peers of other ethnicities.





America’s legacy of workforce discrimination has undoubtedly influenced young Black men and women’s employment status. When the national unemployment rate hit 5.3 percent, it was 9.6 percent for millennials, but significant variation existed within different millennial groupings. Unemployment rates for Black millennials of different age ranges are noticeably higher than Latino millennials and almost double the rate of white millennials within the same range. Just to drive home how troubling this is, the worst year of white unemployment over the past decade (12 percent in 2010) is better than the best year of Black unemployment (14 percent in 2007) over the same time period.

A scarcity of available jobs combined with America’s legacy of housing discrimination and redlining has greatly contributed to the fact that Black millennials experience poverty at rates far higher than their peers. In 2013, 32 percent of young Black people lived in poverty, compared to 21.3 percent of young Latinos and 16.9 percent of young white people.

Young Black men and women also are incarcerated at twice the rate of Latinos and far higher than the rate of whites. For example, in 2013, 1,092 out of every 100,000 18- and 19-year-old Black males were locked up, compared to 412 of Latino males and 115 white males of the same age. While the raw numbers are less for women, the ratio is still troubling. In the same year, 33 per 100,000 18- and 19-year-old Black females were incarcerated, compared to 17 Latino females and 7 white females.

Young Black men and women must deal with being targets of America’s prison-for-profit pipeline while also struggling to find work and elevate themselves out of poverty. But, when they do, other forms of discrimination await them in professional and academic settings. Black high school and college graduates are not only twice as likely to be unemployed as white graduates, but Black college grads also carry higher student debt.

Getting recommendations just for you…

To make matters far grimmer, the earning power of young Black graduates still lags far behind that of their white peers. In 2013, Black households headed by someone with a college degree earned $52,147 on average, while white households headed by someone with a college degree earned $94,351.

Here’s where the colorblind millennial assumptions truly fall apart: White millennials are simply getting more substantive assistance from their parents than Black millennials. A study on the racial wealth gap notes, “Single whites are much more likely to possess positive net worth, most likely due to benefits from substantial family financial assistance, higher-paying jobs and home ownership.” The study indicates that as much as 20 percent of their wealth can be attributed to formal and informal gifts from family members, most likely parents. Black and Latino millennials were far less likely to receive this type of help. One-quarter of baby boomers also provided their millennial children with money to pay their expenses so they could save money. Black and Latino millennials were far less likely to receive this type of help.

These economic realities are compounded by research from Clark University that reveals 80 percent of parents of Black millennials expect to be financially supported by their children, even though their kids earn less than their white peers. Black millennials also are far more likely to be asked by family members to borrow money. So, even when Black millennials graduate, find a good job and earn a decent wage, they face familial economic strains, while white millennials typically enjoy familial economic assistance. In a nation with a pronounced racialized gap, where employment, economic and law enforcement discrimination all still exist, we mustn’t erase how those issues disproportionately effect young Black adults.

We also mustn’t erase the positives that Black millennials contribute to our community and to American society as a whole. It is Black millennials who cultivated and continue to lead the Black Lives Matter movement, which has highlighted and pushed forward the fight against police brutality and systemic racism.

It is Black millennials who have raised the bar of educational attainment compared to older Black generations in terms of high school graduation rates and attaining a college associate’s degree or higher. A recent study concluded that Black women are now the most educated group in the United States.

And it is young Black women who are taking their financial futures into their own hands, who are the driving force behind African-American women becoming the fastest-growing group of entrepreneurs in the nation.

The challenges that face this generation are plentiful, but they’re also unique, and attempting to lump them into the larger millennial group without proper context and nuance is to discount our difficulties and erase our successes.


Pyramids in the The Grand Canyon? What is REALLY our true history??

What are the powers-that-be trying to hide from the masses? Pyramids in the Grand Canyon? Were we lied to about how we really arrived in North America? Where are the slave ships? Are we really Black Americans or African-Americans?

Was the history we learned in school a HUGE PSYOP? WERE WE BAMBOOZLED??

Check out this article and the videos by RFG TheChosenOne. Very interesting information folks.


When the Smithsonian discovered an ancient Egyptian colony in the Grand Canyon

Written by: Keith Veronese

(Click link to original article: http://io9.gizmodo.com/5875252/when-the-smithsonian-discovered-an-ancient-egyptian-colony-in-the-grand-canyon)


Did Egyptians cross the Pacific Ocean and wander the American Southwest thousands of years ago? In the early 20th century, claims of such a discovery were made by two Smithsonian-funded archaeologists, who spoke of a thriving civilization tucked within a series of caverns carved into the side of a remote portion of the Grand Canyon. What did the archaeologists find? What evidence did they bring back? Hell, did these men even exist?

A parallel North American civilization?

A story on the front page of the April 5, 1909 edition of the Arizona Gazette recounted the discovery of a series of bizarre caves and artifacts in the Marble Canyon region of the Grand Canyon. The report claimed two Smithsonian-funded archaeologists, Prof. S. A. Jordan and G.E. Kinkaid, are responsible for the find. As the article noted:

(D)iscoveries which almost conclusively prove that the race which inhabited this mysterious cavern, hewn in solid rock by human hands, was of oriental origin, possibly from Egypt, tracing back to Ramses. If their theories are borne out by the translation of the tablets engraved with hieroglyphics, the mystery of the prehistoric peoples of North America, their ancient arts, who they were and whence they came, will be solved. Egypt and the Nile, and Arizona and the Colorado will be linked by a historical chain running back to ages which staggers the wildest fancy of the fictionist.

Later in the article, a cross-legged idol resembling Buddha is described along with a large tomb filled with mummified humans: a veritable mash-up of Egyptian and East Asian cultures.

A dangerous region to explore
Although this remote area of the Grand Canyon makes for perilous traveling, expeditions by private collectors and academics went forward. The site of Kincaid’s discovery was roughly 42 miles away from El Tovar Crystal Canyon, and the Arizona Gazette article noted that the cavern’s entrance was 1500 feet down a sheer cliff.

This is not the easiest terrain to cover, but it’s topography that could be overcome today. Conspiracy theorist John Rhodes claims to know the exact location of the caverns — the site is guarded today by a lone soldier carrying an M-16 and that the caverns are a museum for civilization’s shadowy elites. To make things even more bizarre, David Icke connects Kincaid’s Grand Canyon discovery with reptilian overlords in his 1999 book The Biggest Secret.

Smithsonian denials
No record exists of Kincaid or Professor Jordan within the Smithsonian’s Department of Anthropology, nor is there a paper trail at the Smithsonian detailing the artifacts gathered on the expedition. When asked directly about Kincaid’s claims, a Smithsonian Institute representative once said:

Well, the first thing I can tell you, before we go any further, is that no Egyptian artifacts of any kind have ever been found in North or South America. Therefore, I can tell you that the Smithsonian Institute has never been involved in any such excavations.

According to conspiracy theorists, the Smithsonian Institute went so far as to destroy artifacts to maintain this historical viewpoint. Espousers of this theory mention man-made mounds with plaster walls strewn across the American Midwest and a series of fire-hewn coffins found in Alabama in 1892 that were turned over the Smithsonian Institute, only to be lost in the years following.

A paucity of evidence
Kincaid and Jordan returned without artifacts or pictures of the findings, leaving the Arizona Gazette article as the sole evidence of the expedition.

No data outside of the article substantiates the existence of Professor Jordan, and Kincaid’s only other known reference comes in a March 12 article in the Arizona Gazette. The March 12 piece notes that Kincaid is in Yuma, Arizona. It mentions simply that he is an avid photographer who carries very high-end photography equipment. This is a particularly questionable tidbit, as no photos of Kincaid’s discovery of the mummified bodies or a Buddha-like statue exist, let alone general photos of this portion of the expedition.

It is possible that Kincaid, if he existed, worked under a false name, as the Arizona Gazette articles mentions his hunt for “the mineral”, a euphemism for gold. Theodore Roosevelt made the extraction of gold from the Grand Canyon illegal in 1908 when he deemed the canyon a national forest.

All in all, the artifact story was presumably an attempt to drive up sales of a newspaper, or maybe the product of a couple of bored reporters blessed with a bottle of ether and a slow new day. That said, I would watch the hell out of this SyFy movie, particularly if they tied it to the lost Reptilian city under Los Angeles.



The Original Writer of The Matrix and The Terminator Is A Black Woman

Man oh man! I’m sure some of you have known about this for quite some time but it’s definitely news to me. I surely don’t want to become that person who believes that EVERYTHING was created and ultimately stolen from Blac…I’m sorry, Melanin-Dominant people. But the more I learn each day that’s the conclusion I’m coming to.

I shouldn’t be surprised at this point in the game that if you’re a Caucasia…oops, Melanin-Recessive individual, hailed as an master creator/innovator specifically in the entertainment industry, especially in HOLLYWEIRD, there should be an entire 52-story building dedicated for all sorts of doubt.

Just how much input did they have in the “masterpieces” they  produce?

The 99% of us don’t really know what going behind those scenes, behind those credits we see on the screen or even in written literature. We’re just believing the word of our Massa, the powers-that-be. Seems like everything we consume on the entertainment realm is a psyop.   Literally I can’t watch that idiot box anymore just for my entertainment, unless I’m decoding it, without having to go through a deprogramming ritual to rid myself of the madness.

But anyway, for those of you who may not know about this, this may capture your interest. Please read it:

ED vs EL: My Perspective on the Modern Means of Transportation, such as the Car


From the Melanated Man:

Within the last four to six months I have done a bit of traveling, from Kansas City to Mobile, Al and other locations. I’ve noticed something that I did not pay any attention to in the past in my Fat Man days. The trips were taken by car, so I’ve spent countless hours on the highway. When I was younger I used to love to travel. I dreamed myself one day taking a cross-country trip across the country seeing all of the sights and countryside that I could possibly take in.

I still have that dream, but it will probably have to come with a disclaimer stating…


Well, obviously, we tend to get a little carried away with our eating habits when we’re on the road. That is a known fact, nothing new there. But do we really eat that much food when we are out of town? I mean, I’ve come back from these trips three sometimes five pounds heavier than when I left. At this point in my life, I weigh myself practically every other day to keep track of my weight. It’s a tedious habit, but damn it, I refuse to lose over a 100 pounds AGAIN! I sweat bullets every time I step on the scale.

But hey, if I’m eating the right things I shouldn’t worry, right?!

Yeah…that’s the thought process, but I’ve lost weight and gained it all back once before. Excuse me if I’m a teensy weensy bit paranoid.

But moving on…

I don’t eat too crazy on these trips to warrant these considerable jumps on the scales, especially after only a three-,four-day trip. It’s possible, but not likely. I try to stick to the diet that I maintain at home. No meat, majority raw fruits and vegetables.  I could be  retaining water from these trips.

My next question is, how is that possible? 

Considering that I take my exercise regimen on the road, running between 5-7 miles at the closest park I can find. I do find time to sweat out any water I may retain. So how am I still coming back home heavier that I left?

Could it be the actual traveling aspect? Sitting in the car for four to five hours at a time, sometimes ten to twelve (i.e. Atlanta to Kansas City)?

Is it natural for the body to sit that long without any movement?

Answer: “Duh, course not!”

Let’s rephrase the question: Is it natural to sit in a car, an artificial mechanism, for long periods of time, which prevents the body to perform any of its natural movements such as walking?

Answer: “Duh, of course not! That’s why you need to get out and stretch every so often.”

Hey, that’s true. You should take stretch breaks besides the “gas and eat” stops.

But does it really help? Or is it an act with diminishing returns?

How much do we, the common man and woman, know in detail the consequences that heavy traveling specifically by car has on our biology/anatomy?

We can say with certainty that the car is an artificial creation. They are not grown or born from the earth in any shape,form, or any capacity. Massive MAN-ipulation has to occur for the car to be created. It’s not natural AT ALL. We know with the creation of the car countless people have been displaced from their neighborhoods to make way for new roads, the blood (oil) of Mother Earth is constantly being extracted to feed the car, and carbon emissions have quadrupled because of the waste of the car. Not to mention  the countless lives, man and animal, that are lost from car accidents that are perpetuated by drunken and non-attentive (texting while driving) drivers.

All to save time, a illusion in itself. And to look good while we’re doing it. Ha, artificial vanity!

We KNOW in detail the damage the car has done to the collective environment as a whole.So what is it not too conceivable to think that  this artificial concoction is harming our anatomy in ways we can’t fathom?

Driving at speeds that our bodies may not be built to handle at a molecular level?

Disconnecting our bodily vehicles, gifted to us by the Creator, from the earth?

Causing our body to retain waste that many of us consume during our travels?

Is it really that inconceivable?

Hey, I forgot to mention all of the artificial electrical components within the car, these modern brand new cars, that are potentially harming us without our knowledge as well.

Again I ask, is it really that inconceivable?

And we’re just talking about the car. What about the plane? The train? The boat?

Ha, let me stop.


I feel for the people who have to commute at least 45 minutes to an hour, even more for some, to work one-way. Can you imagine maintaining, let alone losing, weight while spending 25% -35% of your work day commuting to and fro from a job that more than likely only requires you to work at your desk computer for the remaining 65%-75%? On the American diet that consists of fast DEAD food and heavily processed, artificial foods bought from corporations such as Wal-Mart?

“But we have to do what we have to do survive, dude. Everyone can’t be an entrepreneur.”

Do you see the trap? Everything in this life is a choice, whether you realize it or not.

Even our own enslavement ( also, click here and here.)

We have to accept that fact at some point to liberate ourselves, inside and out.


This is my first written post of the 2017 business year. It feels good to get back at it. I’m rejuvenated once more. Let’s get to work, family!


Peace and Love to my melanated family,

Music That INSPIRES: The Jacksons -“Destiny”

I remember my dad playing The Jacksons Destiny album when I was a little kid and I got hooked then. This song really stuck out with me in particular. I resonated with me and at the time I couldn’t understand why. I didn’t quite understand myself then the way I do now. Today it makes TOO MUCH sense to me as to why it resonates with me. It describes me in every way imaginable. I’ve never been a person to fancy the finer things in life, or to get caught up in the big lights aka the illusion. I just want to live the simple life, nothing more, nothing less. I consider this song a classic in my book. No matter how Michael Jackson was portrayed in the media when he was alive, I still admired him and respected his gift to touch the spirit of the man. He touched man with this track. Hope you enjoy! – The Melanated Man



By The Jacksons

In this world there’s so much confusion
And I’ve tasted the city life and it’s not for me
Now I do dream of distant places
Where I don’t know now, but it’s Destiny

If it’s the rich life, I don’t want it
Happiness ain’t always material things

I want Destiny
It’s the place for me
Give me the simple life
I’m getting away from here
Let me be free, let me be me

I’m a man that’s for all seasons
What the city offers me ain’t naturally
I look to greet the stars
But there’s no stars to see
Gonna search this world until I find my Destiny

If it’s the rich life, I don’t want it
Happiness ain’t always material things

I want Destiny
It’s the place for me
Give me the simple life
I’m getting away from here
Let me be free, let me be me

I’m a man that’s for all seasons
What the city offers me ain’t naturally
I look to greet the stars
But there’s no stars to see
Gonna search this world until I find my Destiny

I wanna be far from here
Should I up and fly away so fancy free
Nobody can change my mind
I’m screamming out these words for me
While time
Destiny, ah destiny, it’s calling me
Destiny, a place for me
Ah, destiny
I want destiny
It’s the place for me…

a repost: You’ll Stop Eating Eggs After You Learn How They’re Really Made (GRAPHIC)

I had cut back on eggs myself, maybe an omelet here and there every blue moon. I’m very familiar with the cruelty of animals so this doesn’t surprises me at all. But that’s one more treat I can cut off of my list. I’m DONE with eggs. I’m gonna end not eating anything after awhile lol. -The Melanated Man

Kalee Brown- February 7, 2017

Eggs: A classic, vegetarian breakfast food with just the right amount of protein and fat… At least, that’s what the corporations want you to think. In reality, the protein and fat found in eggs are linked to multiple diseases, including heart disease, and the processes involved with producing eggs are so far from humane, I wouldn’t consider them a “vegetarian” food.

advertisement – learn more

Do you truly know how eggs are produced in the first place? Fair warning: The content in this article is graphic and, after learning how eggs are really made, you may never eat them again.

Here’s How Eggs Are Really Produced

Hens naturally lay eggs, so eating eggs is considered “natural,” right? Wrong. For starters, hens naturally only lay about 12 eggs per year in the wild, whereas hens living on factory farms are genetically mutated to lay between 250 and 300 eggs per year.

Egg laying isn’t a fun process for hens. It’s comparable to the human labour process and can take up to 26 hours to occur. In comparison, that’s like forcing women to be on their period every day for an entire year, just so another species could consume what’s coming out of them. Sounds pretty gross, right? It also takes a lot of calcium for hens to lay eggs in bulk, so many hens end up breaking bones, developing osteoporosis, or even becoming paralyzed.

The reason I don’t consider eggs a vegetarian food is because chickens do, in fact, die in the process. Since male chickens can’t lay eggs, thousands are disposed of all the time. These chickens are slaughtered en masse by either grinding them up alive, disposing of them in garbage bags where they suffocate to death, or throwing them directly into dumpsters where they’ll eventually die. Alternatively, sometimes these chickens get sold and turned into feed for other animals, or even to just hens!


Even though female chicks are the ones producing the eggs, they’re not treated very well, either. This is not only inhumane, it’s also illogical — it makes no sense from a financial perspective to mistreat the animals these corporations profit from. Most hens only live until they’re about a year and a half old because they face so many health risks and are then slaughtered.

The conditions on factory farms are extremely unhealthy, with typically 125,000 hens squeezed into one shed alone, which often leads to hens getting infections, especially because there’s fecal matter everywhere. It’s common for them to injure or kill one another, too, and at any given time, 6 million hens are being starved in their cages.


This process obviously isn’t environmentally sound either. Since the conditions are so poor and eggs are mass produced, there’s a significant amount of land and water required, as a dozen eggs requires 2,400 liters of water to process.

The following video by Erin Janus perfectly depicts what’s wrong with the way eggs are mass produced:


What About Organic, Cage-Free Eggs?

Some people prefer to purchase cage-free or organic eggs because they’re branded as coming from “happy hens” living a more natural lifestyle. Although organic may be the healthier option, unfortunately, the “cage-free” label is merely a marketing scheme used by corporations to make you think you’re choosing the “cruelty-free” option.

In order to meet industry standards, organic and cage-free farms can keep 20,000 hens in one shed. This number is still large enough to allow for the same health hazards to threaten hens. These hens may not live in cages, but they are still crammed into a confined space without access to sunlight. Many of the birds die, their carcasses rot, some get diseases, and other birds fight each other to the death.

At organic chicken farms specifically, it’s standard practice for the hens’ beaks to be chopped off. And no, this isn’t a humane practice — their beaks contain many nerves and pain receptors. This practice is actually done because it prevents birds from plucking out their feathers, a natural response they have to stress and pain.


To address this issue, animal rights activist group Direct Action Everywhere released an undercover video exposing the poor conditions at a Costco egg farm in California that’s labelled as “cage-free.” The conditions are horrific and the video footage shows that many of the birds were covered in blood and feces and some were even plucked to death. You can watch the short video here:


You Probably Shouldn’t Be Eating Eggs Anyways

Many of you reading this may be saying, “Eggs are still a healthy source of protein and fat.” What you may not know is that the health risks associated with eggs far outweigh the benefits.

As Michelle McMacken, MD, explains, “Landmark studies have shown that when omnivores eat choline or carnitine (found in meat, poultry, seafood, eggs, and dairy), gut bacteria make a substance that is converted by our liver to a toxic product called TMAO. TMAO leads to worsening cholesterol plaques in our blood vessels and escalates the risk of heart attack and stroke.”

Harvard University researchers recently published a study in JAMA Internal Medicine that examined the association of animal and plant protein with mortality rates and causes as well as longevity of life. They studied approximately 130,000 people for 36 years, monitoring their diet, lifestyle, illness, and mortality. The study found that replacing eggs with plant-based protein led to a 19% reduction in death risk.

Eggs are clearly not conducive to living an environmentally sustainable, healthy, and cruelty-free lifestyle. So, I encourage you to reflect on this knowledge and ask yourself: Does it truly serve me and my body to eat eggs?

a repost: 5G Network Being Pushed on the Public with Zero Concern for Safety

Article posted on Waking Times (click link for original post)



Pedro Aquila, Staff Writer

The FCC (Federal Communications Commission) is pushing to streamline the approval of 5G cell towers, overriding the little regulation that exists to legalize use of experimental high frequencies without extensive safety testing. Untested frequencies in the range of 28 gigahertz to 100 Ghz or more are set to be deployed all around us without our consent, emanating from an even greater number of new, smaller cell towers.

“To make this work, the 5G buildout is going to be very infrastructure intensive, requiring massive deployment of small cells.” ~Tom Wheeler, Former FCC Chairman and corporate lobbyist

Some are talking about using even higher frequencies, in the terahertz range, much higher than previous networks.

A recent statement from Take Back Your Power says:

“US FCC wants to “streamline” the approval process for DAS (Distributed Antenna System) 4G/5G ubiquitous cell towers by exempting them from the 1996 Telecommunications Act!

And the US Senate will imminently be voting on S.19 and S.88, to expand DAS 4G/5G deployment!

If such efforts succeed, millions of small cell towers (on existing light poles/utility poles, or new ones) will be deployed everywhere, throughout residential neighborhoods. The millimeter microwave radiation deployed will produce horrific health effects, worsening EVERYONE’s health, and will remove the remaining pollinators. It’s THAT serious.  The bees in particular will die off rapidly, per studies of bees and microwave radiation.”

According to Dr. Axe:

“In essence, 5G will be the mobile networks, often referred to as cell phone towers, that power wireless technology. But get this: As we’re expected to start shifting toward 5G technology around the early 2020s, Federal Communications Commission Chairman Tom Wheeler says we can expect to see a lot more of those mobile towers.

So while we may enjoy anywhere from 10 to 50 times faster connection speeds that help fuel better data consumption, we may in return get millions of new cell phone towers on our street corners. (Our current 4G LTE technology relies on about 200,000 cell phone towers around the U.S.) But 5G needs a much denser network, meaning many more cell towers of all sizes all over the place. (3) The fact that these things have never been proven safe — and that worrisome science is cropping up around wireless technology — is cause for concern.

And it seems this 5G plan is full speed ahead. On July 14, 2016, the FCC voted to approve Spectrum Frontiers, making the U.S. the first country in the world to open up higher-frequency millimeter wave spectrum for the development of 5G fifth-generation wireless cellular technology. Environmental Health Trust is voicing concerns because health, safety and environmental evaluations to understand the impact on humans, wildlife and the environment have not been done.

In fact, before the FCC gave 5G the green light, the agency was flooded with comments in opposition to 5G.”

5G is being presented as the next stage of evolution in communications technology, and being promoted with enthusiastic headlines, such as:

Ericsson and IBM announce 5G ‘breakthrough‘”

5G starts with chips like IBM and Ericsson’s silicon antenna

Forget 5G, new terahertz band can transmit data faster than 100 Gbps

AT&T working on 5G wireless network using Air Gig

Headlines with an alternative perspective read:

Action alert: 5G cellular technology will blanket planetary life with ultra-high microwave frequencies

Story image for 5g danger from Financial Times5G mobile networks speed towards an uncertain future

For background on 5G, watch this video from Take Back Your Power, featuring Tom Wheeler, Former FCC Chairman and corporate lobbyist, who delivers a rather intimidating and presumptuous speech praising this new technology.

But what about the people already suffering with symptoms of EMF radiation from wifi, smart phones, smart meters, and newer vehicles? The dangers of certain new technologies, as is the case with some biotech and toxic foods, represent a much more insidious reality: cancer causing, body disrupting frequencies.

The attitude of such technological innovators is perfectly represented in by Tom Wheeler’s statements, pushing for American exceptionalism, demanding 5G deployment as soon as possible with little to no testing of the effects on human beings or the natural environment. He says billions of dollars are ‘damn important,’ with the part mentioning billions of dollars mysteriously absent from the speech’s official transcsript.

“If the Commission approves my proposal next month, the United States will be the first country in the world to open up high-band spectrum for 5G networks and applications. And that’s damn important because it means U.S. companies will be first out of the gate.”

At events like this, people reasonably approaching the notion of danger are ostracized, while lobbyists like Tom Wheeler condescendingly say things like “talk to the medical people,” in response to genuine concerns.

The FCC is just like the FDA, CDC, NIH, or EPA: regulatory bodies in bed with the very corporations they claims to be regulating. Companies such as IBM, Verizon and AT&T often wield greater power than government, often working directly with government to create their own rules. The book, Captured Agency: How the Federal Communications Commission Is Dominated by the Industries It Presumably Regulatesexplains this works.

For a deeper insight into the mainstream narrative of the splendors of cell technologies , this video is a sales pitch for the road 1G to 5G.

We’re already being steered in this direction, forced into a future of smart devices and the internet of things, and it could get so much worse from here. How many rising illnesses, how many symptoms, how many cases of salivary gland cancer, brain cancer, and EMF hypersensitivity will we discover along the way?

As Kevin Mottus said in the above video from Take Back Your Power, we need to fight this with much more persistence.

See the following links for information on the effects of cell technologies, as well as info on what you can do to protect yourself.

“Below is what I call my List of Irrefutability. We can soon reach a turning point, but our voices are each needed at this time. Please quote from and or share these links:” ~Kevin Mottus

a repost: 15 Satirical Illustrations That Will Make You Question Human Evolution

I found this pretty hilarious!


Alexa Erickson-February 2, 2017

The study of evolution is filled with controversies. Some scientists believe that mankind continues to move forward and this will always be the case, while others believe humanity has reached its final stage of evolution, and is now currently in an era of stagnation.

“I think that we’ve stopped evolving,” said English broadcaster and naturalist Sir David Attenborough.

Because if natural selection, as proposed by Darwin, is the main mechanism of evolution – there may be other things, but it does look as though that’s the case – then we’ve stopped natural selection.

We stopped natural selection as soon as we started being able to rear 95–99 per cent of our babies that are born.

We are the only species to have put a halt to natural selection, of its own free will, as it were.

But John Hawks, an Associate Professor of Anthropology at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, disagrees:

We have evolved in our recent past, and we will continue to do so as long as we are around. If we take the more than seven million years since humans split from our last common ancestor with chimpanzees and convert it to a 24-hour day, the past 30,000 years would take about a mere six minutes. Yet much has unfolded during this last chapter of our evolution: vast migrations into new environments, dramatic changes in diet and a more than 1,000-fold increase in global population. All those new people added many unique mutations to the total population. The result was a pulse of rapid natural selection. Human evolution is not stopping. If anything, it is accelerating.

Thinking about evolution — whether it’s accelerating or stagnating — is both fascinating and mind boggling at the same time. But the controversy of it has led modern illustrators to present the subject at hand in a much different way than arguments on paper or in person. In fact, these illustrators are putting their imaginations to work to show these two opposing scientific assumptions in a satirical way, and honestly, it’s just as thought-provoking as the lengthy arguments on either side of the scientific table.

The following images will make you wonder: Have we gotten better or worse? Have we advanced technology, or has it simply overtaken us? Think of sitting down with your grandparents, and how your discussions on the world, and where we are, and who we are, differ. Many of us might find ourselves in a common argument. Grandparents believe younger generations have become mere robots, forgetting what hard work looks like and what the outdoors smells like. The younger generations may believe we have created so many advancements to better the world we live in that it’s a fair tradeoff. Of course, this is merely an example and cannot speak for everyone, but it’s interesting to see how generations apart can vary on outlook, such as scientists do.

Take a look at the following 15 illustrations and decide for yourself where you stand on the topic, or even just see what the images provoke your brain to think!
