WTRC August 2014 Newsletter PDF VERSION

http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-image-antique-wagons-adobe-wall-image1703201Boy, August sure came in fast! Is it just me or does time seem to be speeding up?

During the last week in July it pretty much rained every day bringing the water level in the large lake up a few
inches. Something greatly needed!

In this month’s newsletter I thought it important to share something that is not only important to those living in Wagon Tongue but also to all members and far beyond! I didn’t put two & two together on this until I watched and aired the audio portion of a new DVD about smart meters and the digital meters I.R.E.A. installed a few years ago taking out our older analog electric meters. This was the year our honeybees disappeared! Yet only a few miles away where they still have their older analog meters, the honey bees remain. One out of three bites of food we eat, the honeybees are responsible for. You might remember Ben Cooper’s ranch that borders Wagon Tongue raised honeybees for a long time. We used to buy his honey in local restaurants and stores up here. But no more! It’s been on the news how honeybees are disappearing all over this country. Perhaps we now know the reason why. And this goes far, far beyond just the honeybees!

The Dangers and Deceptions of Smart Meters

Do you have a smart electric meter? How about a digital meter? Or do you still have one of the old analog meters.

This is another one of those areas of technology that is backfiring on multitudes of innocent people. It was Albert Einstein who said “Technology will be the downfall of mankind.” These new meters are being implemented Worldwide. Yet hundreds of thousands in Europe and America are just saying NO to smart meters. Unfortunately, hundreds of thousands of these have already been installed and most people have no idea if they have a smart meter or not. If your meter reader has to still get out of his truck and walk over to your meter (with no digital readouts) and read it, you’re safe! You still have an analog. But if your meter has a digital readout and no one comes around to read it, you have a smart meter and need to get rid of it. You can demand your utility company remove it and replace it with the older analog with dials. Now here comes the tricky part. When you look at your meter and see that it’s digital, yet someone still drives by with and obtains the reading without having to get out of their vehicle, he’s reading it from a frequency. You may or may not still have a meter which emits dangerous radiation. If you call your utilities company asking if you have a smart meter and they say no, only a digital meter, they may be lying and trying to deceive you by telling you the type you have is totally safe. But is it? Up here in the high country of Colorado where I live, they changed the old analog meters to digital and all of a  sudden, all of the honey bees disappeared. Only a few miles away where they still have the older analog meters with dials, the honeybees remain. Does this tell you anything? This is happening all over the country. One of every three bites of food you eat, the honeybee is responsible for! And then there’s the cost. Has your utility bill gone up since obtaining either a smart or digital meter? Obama said, “Under my plan, under a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.” And then there’s the big brother aspect. With these new smart meters, they know when you take your shower, when you use your microwave as opposed to your conventional oven, when you toast your bread and even when you use your blender. Every appliance has its own code and so they know exactly when you’re using each one of them! And if that’s not bad enough, here’s a little more on the health and safety aspects:

“The current medical literature raises credible questions about genetic and cellular effects, hormonal effects, male fertility, blood/brain barrier damage and increased risk of certain types of cancers from RF or ELF levels similar to those emitted from “smart meters.” Children are placed at particular risk for altered brain development, and impaired learning and behavior. Further, EMF/RF adds synergistic effects to the damage observed from a range of toxic chemicals.Given the widespread, chronic, and essentially inescapable ELF/RF exposure of everyone living near a “smart meter”, the Board of the American Academy of Environmental Medicine finds it unacceptable from a public health standpoint to implement this technology until these serious medical concerns are resolved. We consider a moratorium on installation of wireless “smart meters” to be an issue of the highest importance.”

 The transmitting meters most often being used transmit continuously, every few seconds. This is picked up by a receiver and logged by the utility. You are exposed to the transmissions from all the meters within transmitting range. The meters often have a range of over 2 miles. Thus, the exposure is  continuous and the “safety” standards the meters comply with are irrelevant to the situation.

Some transmitting meters transmit at less frequent intervals, however, they still seem to be causing health problems. This could be due to the still elevated levels of radiowaves and microwaves in the neighborhood because of all the neighbors’ transmitters. Remember, many, many meters are transmitting at these intervals. The transmitting meters can also put high frequencies directly on home and building wiring. This can happen deliberately through signaling to electrical loads or inadvertently through poor engineering. Poorly engineered meters can cause electrical pollution by putting the transmitted signal directly on home wiring or by the way they draw power to operate. Signals in the range of 30 to 60 kHz have been measured and result from poor engineering in the way the meters obtain power from the electrical grid in order to operate. Meters could be properly engineered so that they would not be highly electrically polluting

Whether deliberate or inadvertent, studies are finding high frequencies on building wiring is related to a host of health problems. Milham and Morgan found a dose response relationship between high frequencies present on building wiring and cancer. Removing high frequencies on building wiring has improved MS symptoms, blood sugar levels, asthma, sleep quality, teacher health, headaches, ADD, and numerous other health problems.

Technical papers provide a solid electrical and bio molecular basis for these effects. A recent paper by Ozen, showed that transients induce much stronger current density levels in the human body than does the powerline 60Hz signal. A technical paper by Vignati and Giuliani discusses the authors’ findings that high frequency communication signals on power lines also induce much stronger electrical currents in the human body than a low frequency signal of the same strength. The induced currents disturb normal intercellular communications. This causes harmful short-term and long-term effects. There is also a simple meter that lay people can use to easily measure most high frequencies on building wiring.

The additional electrical pollution from the transmitting meters is also greatly exacerbating the ground current problem.

The objectives of the Smart Grid Program can be accomplished without transmitting meters and without using other technology such as high frequency communication over power lines, which are also harmful to human health. It simply requires that meters be selected that are properly engineered to meet the needs of the program without using dangerous technology. Multi-rate billing and other sophisticated metering options do not require that the meter transmit. Models are available that download periodically on phone lines, dedicated communication lines, or are read by a reader the meter reader carries. Dedicated communication cables can be used to shut off or allow on certain power consuming electronics such as air conditioners. It is essential that only meters that do not transmit or put high frequency signals on building wiring are approved for the Smart Grid Program

At this time, however, it is important to know that many new appliances are being outfitted with transmitters that transmit continuously and cannot be turned off. Be sure to ask detailed questions if you are purchasing new appliances.

The un-safeness of the “safety” standards for the continuously transmitting smart meters is apparent from the reports of health problems ranging from headaches to poor sleep to heart palpitations that begin after their installation.

Transmitted microwave and radio frequency radiation also have the potential for causing serious long-term health consequences, even for those who do not notice overt symptoms. The majority of independent studies report similar results: impairment of cellular communication, DNA breakages, increased stress proteins, etc.

Children seem to be particularly vulnerable. Exposure to radio frequency radiation has also been linked to an increased risk for cancer, including lymphoma, leukemia, brain tumor (cell phones), melanoma, parotid gland tumors, and breast cancer.

A recent public health study provides particularly strong evidence that we should be concerned about continuous exposure to transmitted microwave radiation. It can be found in a paper published in Pathophysiology (Volume 16, Issue 1, June 2009, Pages 43-46).

There have been decreases in Swedish public health indicators after 1997. Are they due to improved diagnostics or to environmental factors? The authors looked at trend lines in data collected by the Swedish government and found that the introduction of cell phone technology nationwide in 1997 coincided with the beginning of an accelerating deterioration of several health indicators. Specifically, the rates of prostate cancer, brain tumors, melanomas and lung cancers in the elderly all increased dramatically. So did deaths from Alzheimer’s disease, traffic accident injuries, sick leave rates, and percentage of infants born with heart problems. This paper is short and well worth reading. We should resolve the public health questions before introducing further public exposure to microwave radiation, particularly involuntary continuous exposure.

Radiowave and microwave radiation are not just a problem for people, they are causing serious problems for animals of all types and plant life as well.

If you do not have a transmitting smart meter and do not want one for health reasons, in addition to contacting your utility and Public Service Commission or Public Utility Commission in writing, please do the following: 

1) Spread the word about the public health threat posed by transmitting smart meters. You can do this by using your Facebook or MySpace page, if you have one. Notify your friends via email or write a Letter. You can also write to the Editor of your local paper.

2) Install a permanent sign on/near your meter(s) asking that no transmitting meter be installed.

3) Write to your legislators and regulators both state and national with information on the health risks posed by transmitting meters.

4) Work toward getting an opt-out program in your state. Precedent has been set in Maine for each state having such a program. Other states are also now working on opt-out programs including: Vermont, Michigan, Georgia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Hawaii, Washington D.C., Wisconsin, Naperville, Illinois and California.

5) Write to your local environmental groups and others pushing this program on the basis of energy savings. Using energy consumptive devices to do the job of a on-energy consumptive device does not save energy. It is far more energy efficient to transmit data over fiberoptic cables, or even copper wires than to transmit it wirelessly, according to a Swiss study wireless transmission takes 3 times as much energy. It is essential that those pushing transmitting meters see this information.

6) Modify and use handouts available at http://www.emfsafetynetwork.org/ to raise awareness about this public health threat. Others have successfully used this information to call for a moratorium on transmitting smart meter installation in their area.

If you already have a transmitting meter and it is causing you health problems, please:

Use this information to educate your physician and obtain a letter supporting your need to retain or regain your non-transmitting utility meters. This information may also give them the documentation they need to make the diagnosis of Radiofrequency Sickness.

To learn more about these smart meters and what you need to do, you really should see the new DVD on the subject, simply titled, “Smart Meters”. Available this month for a gift of any amount to help with the cost of this newsletter.

Of course, the best way to get away from this problem altogether is to get off the grid. We have another DVD that can show you how to do this titled: Living off the Grid “Solar” Also available for a gift of any amount this month.

A Brief History of Wagon Tongue

Originally it was part of the Lone Chimney Ranch, it was sold in 1959 to a California land development company. They constructed the large lake and began to sell commercial business sites around the lake. Before any  homesites were developed the company went into bankruptcy. In the early 60’s a local realtor, Al Plamman, purchased it form the bankruptcy court and redeveloped it into “Wagon Tongue.” According to his newspaper advertisement it was a weekend cabin and equestrian sites. The streets all have “horse” names. He sold lots and promoted horseback riding and fishing in the area. The Wagon Tongue Recreational Club was formed in the 70’s to collect dues to keep the lake maintained and stocked. The Club incorporated in the early 80’s and under its first president, pursued the acquisition of water rights to keep the lakes from being emptied by “water calls.” In 1984 the club constructed the small lake by building a dam and flooding some of the already sold lot and the county road that runs underneath it. It took several years for it to fill up. In 2007 the Club acquired ownership of the 6 acres of land surrounding Plamman Lake and shortly thereafter constructed the pavilion.

Free Use of Boats

Well, I’ve learned one thing, when people use things that are not theirs; they treat them like they’re not theirs. Case in point, the new pedal boat I bought for club members to use was broken. Not only broken, but parts missing so it couldn’t be fixed again without sending off for new parts. I’ve done this and hopefully, it will be ready to go again by the time you read this. Please, if you’re going to use these, treat them well!

I’ve done this as an experiment. You don’t want to be the one that ruins things for everyone else.

July 12th The General Membership Meeting

One thing I didn’t mention in last month’s newsletter is that most people voted for the idea of having their adult
kids being able to fish after paying an additional membership fee each year and this extra money would go to buying more fish. I heard Terry Brunet say fish only but I suppose this is up to the members to have a say in this too right? Contact me with your comments either by letter, email at cultbuster7@yahoo.com or by phone. 1-(719) 748-6003 If you want a free DVD of that meeting, let me know.

I’m not sure how long this will take to get through all the bureaucracy but this would take care of the problem we’ve had with members giving their badges to their adult kids with families of their own. I suppose another thing to look at is the third generation. Members with adult kids who now also have adult kids and their families. Meanwhile, until things get established, the bylaws remain the same. Members cannot loan out their badges to their adult kids. I was talking to Walt Smith of Walt’s Towing in Colorado Springs and he informed me that when he bought his place, he was told by board member Terry Brunet that this is a grey area. No, this is not a grey area! I do believe one way around this is if you make your adult kids co-owners of your property.

Lake Patrol

Believe it or not, I’m still the only one doing lake patrol up here but we need someone for the morning hours. I can continue doing afternoons and night. Contact me.

Preppers? What’s a Prepper?

A prepper is simply someone who prepares for things to come. Boy scouts have always been preppers. I was one and our motto has always been “Be Prepared!” The Ebola Virus is something we’re hearing much about these days and we’ve been told it kills most and there is no cure. This is a lie! You can do a simple Google search using the words Ebola and Colloidal Silver and tons of pages come up on the topic. Did you know that Colloidal Silver kills all viruses and infections? According to the U.C.L.A Medical Dept. Colloidal Silver killed every virus tested in their lab. Over 650 of them! Available in most health food stores but quite expensive. Or you can make your own at home for pennies per gallon! So simple a child can do this! For over 25 years we’ve been making basic Colloidal Silver generators available at our cost. You can find some others on line but they usually start at around $100.00 and go up to over $300 which is ridiculous! Our cost is only $44.00 and that includes shipping! Comes with  everything you need including instructions and a free DVD “Suppressed Medical Advancements”.

Other Things You Should Prepare For?

Because of my radio broadcast, I network with many in the know concerning things you’ll never hear from the mainstream news. In case you hadn’t noticed, the world is in major turmoil. This includes the United States. There are real threats to America. Not only from terrorists but also from the corruption within. It is more than obvious we are in for a financial collapse simply because of the fiat empire that has been created. Paper money not worth the paper it’s printed on is only on. There’s also the probability of an EMP attack. (Electro Magnetic Pulse) which would take out our power grid for an undetermined period of time. Without power there’s no water, no gas, no transporting of foods or anything else. Banks and stores would close. All communications would be
gone. We would go into an immediate police state and marshal law. Panic would take place within hours. Within days people would become hungry, thirsty and desperate. Some would think nothing of killing you over a can of beans or drinkable water. Sound extreme? Of course it does! But this is the reality when going into a financial collapse. Now, the mindset of many living in the cities is this: Well, if everything breaks down, we’ll just take off to the mountains with our guns and live off the land for survival. Problem is, they have no idea how impossible this is! It wouldn’t take long before they would be using their guns toward the people with that which they want. The problem is, we up here in Wagon Tongue are not prepared for this!

And don’t count on our government or the Board of Directors to help. On July 25th our President of the Board Lester Williams stopped by my place. I took the opportunity to talk with him about the lack of security we have up here. I suggested to him that we put up some gates. Not to be closed, but left open for all of us to come and go freely as we have. That is unless we have a situation for safety reasons to close them. This  is what he told me. He said “gates are put up to keep the good people out.” I told him “no, gates are put up to keep the bad people out and keep the good people safe!”

He had no comment after that. What I’m saying is that we’re not prepared for such problems yet we need to be. It would be wise to stock up on 1-2 years of non perishable foods and water or at least a means to filter water no matter where you live.

Vitamin B-17 the Cure for Cancer?

So why is this not in our multiple vitamins? There is a place in California that does sell Vitamin B-17. Their toll free phone number is: 1-866-468-7487 If you would like to learn more, you might want a copy of the DVD “A World Without Cancer” Available for a gift of any amount this month.

Ending Note…

There’s so much more I wanted to deal with here. A boardwalk for the elderly near the pavilion, a larger Wagon Tongue sign at our entrance, an emergency plan for safety reasons and other areas members have brought to my attention. Well, there’s the next newsletter for this. Meanwhile, contact me with your thoughts. If you would like a copy of the bylaws, email me and I’ll email you a copy back.
