“The FCC’s Slice and Dice of States’ Rights and Consumer Protections” and More by Bruce Kushnick

“The FCC’s Slice and Dice of States’ Rights and Consumer Protections” and More by Bruce Kushnick By B.N. Frank Telecom analyst Bruce Kushnick has been instrumental in providing details on how The Federal Communication Commission (FCC) and U.S. elected officials and have now basically given the country to The Telecom Industry (aka Big Wireless) to put small cell towers and wireless infrastructure everywhere – above ground and below for the “Race for 5G”. His March 8, 2018 article primed us for what was coming:  “‘5G’ Wireless Is the New Fiber…

EPA Aims to Weaken Radiation Regulations As FCC Gives Telecoms $2B To Install 5G Everywhere

EPA Aims to Weaken Radiation Regulations As FCC Gives Telecoms $2B To Install 5G Everywhere By B.N. Frank An article by The Register, “Eat my shorts, watchdog tells every city mayor in the US – FCC approves $2bn 5G telco windfall,” says it all.  The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has sold out to “Big Wireless” in a way that is even more embarrassingly obvious than even pro-Telecom elected officials ever expected: If you were to pick a moment in which America’s telecoms regulator disappeared down the rabbit hole at its…

FCC Wants to Give $2B to Wireless Carriers on September 26

FCC Wants to Give $2B to Wireless Carriers on September 26 By B.N. Frank According to a recent article in ARS Technica, this FCC proposal will also force cities and towns to act on small cell tower and wireless infrastructure applications within 60 or 90 days.  It will be voted on September 26, 2018 and statements are still being accepted. Numerous U.S. municipal governments, organizations, medical professionals and environmentalists are extremely ticked off.  Activist Post has already reported about this many times. The BabySafe Project Opposes Legislation Allowing Small Cell…

There’s Still Time to Complain to the FCC about Legislation Severely Limiting Municipal Control Over Small Cell Tower Placement

There’s Still Time to Complain to the FCC about Legislation Severely Limiting Municipal Control Over Small Cell Tower Placement By B.N. Frank It appears statements may still be submitted to the FCC regarding Docket 17-79, Accelerating Wireless Broadband Deployment by Removing Barriers to Infrastructure Investment. Legislation limiting municipal control has already been fought in many states.  It’s already been vetoed or delayed in some of them.  Unfortunately for Ohio residents, their small cell tower bill was passed by legislators, signed by the governor, and went into effect on August 1. …

Efforts To Protect Us From Unproven 5G Cell Towers Radiation Health Effects

Efforts To Protect Us From Unproven 5G Cell Towers Radiation Health Effects By Catherine J. Frompovich Americans for Responsible Technology and Grassroots teamed up the week of September 9, 2018 to visit members of the U.S. Congress House and Senate Commerce Committees, which have jurisdiction over the Federal Communications Commission, in order to inform legislative directors and aides about the science on wireless radiation, which has been “memory-holed” by all who fast track 5G wireless with its special cell towers that must be placed within very close proximity to consumers…

U.S. Conference Of Mayors Will Sue FCC If They Eliminate Local Control Over 5G Small Cell Tower And Infrastructure Installation By B.N. Frank According to pro-industry publication, Smart Cities Dive: The U.S. Conference of Mayors (USCM) said in a statement that it would sue the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) if the commission does not change a proposed policy that would preempt local control in a bid to streamline installation of 5G wireless infrastructure.

The FCC Is Not An Environmental Agency Even Though It Regulates Stuff That Affects The Environment

The FCC Is Not An Environmental Agency Even Though It Regulates Stuff That Affects The Environment By B.N. Frank The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has nothing to do with regulating, limiting, and reducing environmental damage caused by emissions and waste from digital, electronic, and wireless technology.  That’s The Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) job – even though The FCC is NOT an environmental health agency.  The FCC is also NOT a health agency even though exposure to technology is harming people, too – especially children and the disabled.  Pets are affected…

The FCC Is NOT A Health Agency Even Though It Regulates Stuff That Can Cause Health Problems (??)

The FCC Is NOT A Health Agency Even Though It Regulates Stuff That Can Cause Health Problems (??) By B.N. Frank Funny but not “Ha-Ha” funny… The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulates The Telecom Industry (aka Big Wireless) even though they are NOT a health agency. The FCC defers to certain health experts – including the FDA who unfortunately also seem to be turning a blind eye to research proving harm from exposure to technology.  It might be laughable if it wasn’t so hazardous. The FCC has been labelled a…

Newsweek Sounds the Alarm AGAIN on Gov’t Research of Cell Phone Radiation. Will Decades of Warnings Ever Matter to the FCC, FDA, or U.S. Elected Officials?

Newsweek Sounds the Alarm AGAIN on Gov’t Research of Cell Phone Radiation. Will Decades of Warnings Ever Matter to the FCC, FDA, or U.S. Elected Officials? By B.N. Frank Cell phone manufacturers are warning shareholders(not customers) that they may eventually be found liable for harm from their products.  No one seems willing to insure them anymore either. Decades of research from government, independent, industry and military scientists have already proven that exposure to all sources of cell phone and wireless WiFi radiation are harmful in more ways than cancer risk. …

5G Woefully Lacking In Safety Issues—Are FCC And ICNIRP To Blame?

5G Woefully Lacking In Safety Issues—Are FCC And ICNIRP To Blame? By Catherine J. Frompovich In the Abstract of the IEEE Access paper “Exposure to RF EMF From Array Antennas in 5G Mobile Communication Equipment” https://ieeexplore.ieee.org/stamp/stamp.jsp?arnumber=7546896 , we find some rather ‘telling’ information that was brought to my attention recently by Eric Windheim, BA, EMRS, BBEC, a Certified Electromagnetic Radiation Specialist, Certified Building Biology Environmental Consultant, in Sacramento, California, after reading one of my recent articles regarding 5G. Mr. Windheim and I have been in contact before, so he apparently thought…
