Cuba’s telephone and internet connections were knocked out on Friday in a nationwide failure, though there was no general power outage, witnesses said.

All internet service and international communications crashed at around noon (1700 GMT), according to witnesses in Havana and three other provinces. International communications were restored after 90 minutes and the internet 10 minutes later.

ETECSA, the state telecommunications monopoly, in a statement said a “technical interruption” had effected all modes of internet access.

The Communist-run nation only began to connect the population and most businesses a few years ago when in 2018 it began service through smartphones.

The government reported 4.2. million of 11.2 million residents were on the internet through their mobiles and just 170,000 homes were connected.

Widespread internet outages hit northeast U.S.

Internet users across the northeast U.S. reported widespread outages Tuesday.

In an emailed statement 90 minutes after the outage was first reported, Verizon said it was working on the problem hurting Fios service “throughout the Northeast corridor” and that some service had already been restored.

The telecom giant had reported a cut fiber in Brooklyn via Twitter, although it’s not clear if that issue was responsible for the outage. Verizon didn’t give any estimate in its email about when the problem would be fixed and didn’t reply to questions about what caused the problem.

Comcast, another major internet service provider, said it had not observed problems with its network Tuesday.

Scientists warn that global 5G rollout should be halted due to risks to public health

January 26, 2021

A scientist from the United Kingdom has warned that the rollout of 5G networks around the globe should be halteduntil the technology’s safety has been tested and proven.

According to Professor John William Frank, an epidemiologist and physician at the University of Edinburgh, we should “err on the side of caution” by delaying any further rollout of 5G networks, “pending more conclusive research” on its safety.

Frank made his argument in a peer-reviewed paper published in the Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health.

5G doubts fueled by scientific uncertainty

5G technology has been hailed by governments, as well as certain vested interests, as transformative, promising economic and lifestyle benefits through greatly boosting wireless and mobile connectivity.

Compared to previous-generation technologies, 5G has a higher transmitter density, meaning that it needs more transmitter masts over a given distance. This exposes more people to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields at levels that, Frank argues, could potentially be harmful to human health.

Four key areas of scientific uncertainty have fueled Frank’s concern.

A growing but far from comprehensive body of laboratory research indicating the biological potential of radiofrequency electromagnetic fields is among chief concerns, as well as a lack of clarity about precisely what technology is included in 5G.

Nashville Bombing: Deep State MOTIVES, RATIONALES

OKC Redux: Could a Single Vehicle Cause Such Destruction?

A Message to Trump?

Kurt Richard Haskell
December 26, 2020

Just a few thoughts on where things stand with the Nashville explosion:

1. The explosion appears to come from the sky. It looks like it was initiated via a DEW/missile/drone. I posted a video last night showing something coming from the sky one second before the detonation.

2. The rv doesn’t appear to be part of the detonation. I posted another video last night showing the rv isn’t in the proper position to be the source of the the blast. It’s possible it was also detonated, and there is a video where two detonations can be heard but it isn’t the main source of the detonation.

3. The evacuation warning from the rv provides us with some solid evidence. This shows that there was an attempt to minimize casualties. Thus, this isn’t what we would call a “normal” terrorist attack. Also, the recording seems very professionally done as if it were recorded by a government agency of some sort.

4. The explosion happened in a tourist area of Nashville. It’s an area with security cameras everywhere. We should have tons of video of the rv driving and its occupants in the rv or exiting the rv. We don’t. Instead we have a few grainy pictures that show nothing. There is an attempt being made to hide the identity of the rv occupants and to make people focus their time and attention on the rv. It’s a red herring.

5. The police put out a request for help in identifying the rv or its owner. We’ve seen misdirection like this with other false flag attacks. This is meant to finger the rv when the explosion source came from elsewhere.

6. A similar attack, with a much larger detonation took place in Beirut earlier this year. It was blamed on fertilizer exploding but there was also video of something from the sky causing the explosion there. Thus, the perpetrators are from the global cabal/NWO/black hats, whatever you want to call them.

7. The mayor of Nashville gave a bizarre statement yesterday that I posted. He knows the rv explosion is a cover story. He even makes a bizarre statement that the explosion might have been unnecessary. Nashville is a very liberal city and the mayor is anti-Trump. This statement seems to show he blames this explosion on Trump not conceding the election.

8. The rv was at the scene for five hours prior to the explosion. This was likely some sort of law enforcement electronic monitoring vehicle. Law enforcement must have been tipped off that an attack on The AT&T building might occur that night. When it became obvious that the attack could not be stopped, then the audio gunshots were played to wake people up. After two rounds of fake gunfire to wake people up, the audio evacuation warning was played. In my opinion, this was definitely a government type vehicle meant to monitor the situation to minimize casualties.

9. The building where this occurred is an AT&T building heavily fortified against explosions. It’s heavily fortified because it contains one of the NSA data collection centers.

In my opinion, this was likely a DEW weapon of the international cabal that attacked the NSA communications. It was either meant to knock out NSA activities to stop its monitoring for awhile or it was a warning to Trump to stop what he doing or the US power grid/communications will be taken down by DEW weapons. The entire building could have been detonated but it wasn’t. This wasn’t an attempt to cripple US communications but was a smaller targeted event.

A Response to the New York Times‘ Promotion of 5G “Unscience”

Dear Editors,

You might be interested in seeing “Citizens For 5G Awareness” coverage of your July 16, 2019 article “Don’t Fear The Frequency” (Titled online as “The 5G Health Hazard That Isn’t“).

I had to read the article three times through to convince myself it was not an advertisement. This article is not only unscience, but it is deceivable opinion; This does not bode well for the credibility of The New York Times as a science outlet resource.

Wanting to understand how a senior science writer for The New York Times could write such a propaganda piece, I went to google and asked, “Who is William J. Broad?”  And what came up?

Incredulous.  Mr.  Broad is not OK with Yoga, but he is perfectly OK with 5G radiation irradiating the whole planet with no questions asked.  He ignorantly misjudges and mischaracterizes concerned citizens that rightly question the health consequences of 5G (ANY G), as fear-mongers and alarmists.  He cites just one study, against the thousands of studies that have been compiled worldwide by hundreds of scientists (not story tellers).  Surely Mr. Broad and the editorial staff of The New York Times knows of the International 5G space appeal.

The Dangers of 5G to Children’s Health

Children’s Health Defense Team

(February 13, 2019)

Mobile and wireless technologies are a ubiquitous feature of modern life. Most U.S. adults own smartphones, a growing proportion are “smartphone-only” Internet users and over a fourth report being online “almost constantly.” As for children, a 2014 survey of high-income nations reported that almost seven in ten children used a mobile phone, and two-thirds of those had a smartphone, usually by age 10. As described by Nielsen, it is now as common to see “a kid with a smartphone in their hand” as it was to see “a kid playing with a yo-yo in the years before the digital age.”

The enthusiasm with which the public has embraced each new mobile and wireless technology—most of which have never undergone any appropriate safety testing or standards development—suggests that consumers rarely stop to consider the health implications of the infrastructure shoring up their ability to browse, stream and download anytime and “on the go.” Consumers are not entirely to blame for their lack of awareness—it is not easy to disentangle the technologies’ health risks in the face of the telecommunications industry’s steady and calculated disinformation efforts and a captured Federal Communications Commission (FCC) that “follows the script of fabulously wealthy, bullying, billion-dollar beneficiaries of wireless.

Now, however, a global 5G “frenzy” is upon us and is coming into full force. The rollout of “blazing fast” 5G technology will “dramatically increase the number of transmitters sending signals to cellphones and a host of new Internet-enabled devices.” The time is ripe for greater grassroots awareness of the undisclosed tradeoffs between convenience and 5G’s potentially catastrophic health effects. Far from a simple “next-gen” upgrade, powerful 5G (fifth-generation) networks and technology are about to subject everyone, on a continuous basis, to unprecedented forms and amounts of what retired U.S. government physicist Dr. Ronald Powell calls “mandatory irradiation”—without “prior study of the potential health impact” or any assurance of safety. Considering that young people (with their smaller body mass and developing brains) are particularly vulnerable to radiation, the Environmental Health Trust has termed 5G “the next great unknown experiment on our children”—and the entire human population.

Early warnings

In fact, the “giant uncontrolled experiment” on children and adults has already begun, despite an urgent international appeal by tens of thousands of scientists, doctors, environmental organizations and citizens calling for a halt to 5G deployment. In 2018, telecom carriers in the U.S. and Europe began rolling out 5G technology in dozens of cities. Focusing (for now) on “dense urban and high-traffic areas” in the U.S., AT&T began positioning its 5G infrastructure in major cities in eight states, and Verizon started offering 5G home broadband service in “select neighborhoods” in a handful of cities.

For the most part, health concerns have ranked as a tiny footnote in the midst of the massive hoopla about 5G’s speed and capacity, although trade magazines admit that there may be “some objections” to 5G due to “concerns over potential health risks.” In both Europe and the U.S., however, individuals living and working in proximity to newly installed 5G towers and antennas are telling a different story. Many have immediately started experiencing health problems such as insomnia, miscarriage, memory problems and other neurological issues, and there are widespread reports of annihilation of insect and bird populations.

In response to complaints from fire fighters subjected to 5G antennas, the International Association of Fire Fighters has gone on record as opposing “the use of fire stations as base stations for towers and/or antennas for the conduction of cell phone transmissions until a study with the highest scientific merit and integrity…is conducted and it is proven that such sitings are not hazardous to the health of our members.”

A United Nations whistleblower recently drew attention to 5G’s dramatic impact on health in a widely circulated series of comments about 5G’s “seemingly overnight” rollout in Vienna, Austria. Describing 5G as a “silent war,” she commented:

“…Children are the most vulnerable to 5G depredation because of their little bodies. Friends and acquaintances and their children in Vienna are already reporting the classic symptoms of EMR [electromagnetic radiation] poisoning: nosebleeds, headaches, eye pains, chest pains, nausea, fatigue, vomiting, tinnitus, dizziness, flu-like symptoms, and cardiac pain. They also report a tight band around the head; pressure on the top of the head; short, stabbing pains around the body; and buzzing internal organs.”

Above and below

One of the novel dangers introduced by 5G technology is its reliance on high-frequency millimeter waves (MMWs), a bountiful and not previously commercialized portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. While 5G’s enthusiasts are quick to promise support for literally billions of devices, there is one catch—the shorter millimeter wavelengths cannot travel as far as the lower frequencies used for earlier generations of mobile technology. Thus, while there were about 300,000 wireless antennas on U.S. cell towers and buildings as of 2016 (a doubling since 2002), 5G will require “exponentially more”—millions of small cell towers every 500 feet “on every street corner.”

Organizations concerned about the health hazards of wireless radiation note that “Right now, you don’t have to live next to a cell tower….but once they have these [5G] cell antennas everywhere, you won’t be able to [move away].” Unfortunately, the “nowhere to hide” aspects of 5G are even more serious, because ground-based 5G systems will be supplemented by satellite-based systems. In March, 2018, the FCC approved the initial launch of over 4,400 low-Earth-orbit 5G communication satellites, to be followed by thousands more over the next two years—with the eventual result being 11 times more satellites orbiting the Earth than currently. The satellites will send “tightly focused beams of intense microwave radiation at each specific 5G device that is on the Earth,” while each device then sends “a beam of radiation back to the satellite.”

In practical terms, this means that in crowded locations such as airports, individuals’ bodies “will be penetrated by numerous beams of radiation as they walk or as other people walk around them with their 5G smartphones.” But even in the home environment, “5G technology [will] blast through walls and cribs,” making a mockery of “the notion that ‘your home is your castle’ in which you are supposed to be safe.”

More than skin-deep

Scientists, doctors and experts from around the world have issued repeated warnings about 5G’s risks, drawing on published research on MMWs as well as thousands of studies showing the harms caused by other mobile and wireless technologies.

In this context, industry and government claims that 5G technology is safe are completely disingenuous. In fact, the health effects of MMWs are already quite familiar to the U.S. military and defense agencies around the world. The U.S. has at its disposal non-lethal crowd control weapon systems (euphemistically named Active Denial Systems) that use millimeter waves to penetrate the skin of targeted individuals, “instantly producing an intolerable heating sensation that causes them to flee.” In research commissioned by the U.S. Army “to find out why people ran away when the beam touched them,” they discovered that targets “feel like [their] body is on fire.” Researchers also have warned that “the same parts of the human skin that allow us to sweat also respond to 5G radiation much like an antenna that can receive signals.”

Moratorium urgently needed

When the FCC endorsed the transition to 5G in 2016, then-Chairman Tom Wheeler (a former telecom industry lobbyist) vowed “to allow new [5G] technologies and innovations to evolve and flourish without needlessly prescriptive regulations.” Thus, even though 5G represented a radical shift in technology, the FCC proposed no further safety studies, instead continuing to rely on its “outdated, excessively permissive, and thus widely criticized, radiation-exposure guidelines that…are based primarily on a 30-year-old analysis…many years before the emergence of most of the digital wireless technology in use today.” A recent government study by the National Toxicology Program—which determined that cell phone radiation causes cancer—deemed the three-decade-old guidelines “unprotective.”

5G poses risks to all life on the planet—people, animals, insects and plants. However, it is clear that fetuses and children are among the most vulnerable members of the human population. Even prior to 5G, Swedish researchers concluded that “children are indeed more susceptible to the effects of EMF exposure at microwave frequencies” and reported that children who began using “either cordless or mobile phones regularly before age 20” had more than a fourfold increased brain tumor risk. Describing brain cancer as “the proverbial ‘tip of the iceberg,’” the researchers also observed that “no other environmental carcinogen has produced evidence of an increased risk in just one decade.”

The UN whistleblower states, “People’s first reaction to the idea that 5G may be an existential threat to all life on Earth is usually disbelief and/or cognitive dissonance. Once they examine the facts, however, their second reaction is often terror. We need to transcend this in order to see 5G as an opportunity to empower ourselves, take responsibility and take action.” Some of the actions that people have taken include signing the International Appeal; learning about the multiple reasons to be concerned about 5G radiation and telling others; talking to legislators about why rushing legislation that streamlines the deployment of 5G small cells is a bad idea (and also raising the awareness of legislators and state utility commissions about the risks of smart meters); and changing their relationship to their devices, including using wired rather than wireless Internet connections (or turning off WiFi routers at night) and adopting other simple steps.

5G promises to create an even “denser soup of electrosmog,” with incalculable health effects. In fact, any sane person who examines the evidence must concur with the authors and over 40,000 signatories of the International Appeal to Stop 5G on Earth and in Space, who agree that the rush to blanket the planet with 5G “constitutes an experiment on humanity and the environment that is defined as a crime under international law.”

5G Wireless Technology: Millimeter Wave Health Effects

A Review of Recent Public Health Literature

Electromagnetic Radiation Safety
(November 14, 2018)

With the deployment of fifth generation wireless infrastructure (aka 5G), much of the nation will be exposed to MMWs for the first time on a continuous basis. Due to FCC guidelines, these exposures will likely be of low intensity. Hence, the health consequences of 5G exposure will be limited to non-thermal effects produced by prolonged exposure to MMWs in conjunction with exposure to low- and mid-band radiofrequency radiation.

Unfortunately, few studies have examined prolonged exposure to low-intensity MMWs, and no research that I am aware of has focused on exposure to MMWs combined with other radiofrequency radiation.


The emergence of 5G, fifth-generation telecommunications networks, has been in the news lately because the wireless industry has been pushing controversial legislation at the state level to expedite the deployment of this technology. The legislation would block the rights of local governments and their citizens to control the installation of cellular antennas in the public “right-of-way.” Cell antennas may be installed on public utility poles every 10-20 houses in urban areas. According to the industry, as many as 50,000 new cell sites will be required in California alone.

Although many major cities and newspapers have opposed this legislation, the potential health risks from the proliferation of new cellular antenna sites have been ignored. These cell antennas will expose the population to new sources of radio frequency radiation including millimeter waves.

FCC Fast Tracks 5G Spectrum Wireless Despite Links to Cancer & DNA Damage

Regulators Spurn $25 Million US Government Study 

Critics on Capitol Hill calling 5G Rollout “Boon to industry, but devastation to public health“

Parents for Safe Technology
Center for Safer Wireless

Breaking July 11th, 2016: In the wake of the $25 million National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences/National Toxicology Program (NIEHS/NTP) study, which brain-cancer-gliomafound DNA damage and carcinogenic effects caused by wireless radiation, FCC Chair, Tom Wheeler, is fast tracking the 5G Spectrum rollout with a vote scheduled for July 14th.

The 5G network would carry far more data and use higher frequencies than ever used before. Wheeler recommends these new frequencies not be studied or tested for public safety, so the US may be “first out the gate”. Virtually every home or lamppost would be outfitted with a small cell tower. According to Wheeler’s June 20 remarks at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., “5G build out is going to be very infrastructure intensive, requiring a massive deployment of small cells.”
