First Fracking Trial in Texas

DALLAS — The first fracking Zoloft lawsuittrial in Texas opens in Dallas today. Bob and Lisa Parr of Wise County are suing Aruba Petroleum for property and personal damages which the couple claims they have suffered as a result of Aruba’s fracking operations. The Parr property was surrounded by natural gas frackers in 2009. The Parrs charge that frackers have so polluted their air and water as to destroy their right to peacefully enjoy their home and property and properly care for their pets and livestock, some of whom have died as a result of the fracking pollution, according to the complaint against Plano, Texas-based Aruba Petroleum.

Judges Guilty of Bribery

Judges GuiltyZoloft lawsuit of violating their sworn duty do not have the right to sit on the bench in any court in judgement of anyone, whether Supreme Court judges or those in charge of lesser courts. The cozy relationship some U.S. Supreme Court judges have with corporate big shots may not make those judges guilty of bribery, of accepting bribes, but sometimes the activity can grow so egregious it is impossible not to prosecute judges, and not only take them off the bench, but send them to jail.

U.S. Supreme Court judges Antoin Scalia and Clarence Thomas have violated their sworn duty to avoid even the appearance of a conflict of interest (attending Koch brothers’-sponsored events, among other questionable activities); but even their scandalous ethical shortcomings pale compared to those of former barrister Mark Ciavarella. A former Pennsylvania juvenile court judge, Ciavarella was sentenced to 28 years in prison for taking bribes to send juveniles to a for-profit detention facility. Put on your puke bib for this one.

Prosecutors said that Ciavarella accepted nearly $1 million from a developer who built the prison facility.

Wireless experiment violates Nuremberg Treaty

Scientist Barry Trower has announced that the telecommunications industry, with the cooperation of governments around the world, is violating the Nuremberg treaty by allowing human experimentation on a global scale.

Signed by all the nations of the world, the Nuremberg Treaty forbids human experimentation. The treaty states that no human being will be experimented upon without his or her consent, and before giving consent, one has the legal right to understand all of the implications, health problems and  future health problems, and one has the legal capacity to say, “No.”

The dangers of microwave technology – which is used in cell phones, wi-fi, cordless telephone and other wireless mechanisms – are well known by scientists. Nevertheless, microwave emitters have been allowed to proliferate on a previously unimaginable scale.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has said it is watching the adult population until 2015, the children’s population from 2009. Barry Trower says the he WHO is watching to see how many cancers, how many illnesses, how much neurological damage occurs.

Halliburton Guilty of Criminal Destruction

Halliburton is guilty of oil-schmoilcriminal destruction and a whole lot more. The Department of Justice announced Thursday that Halliburton had agreed to plead guilty to criminally destroying evidence in the investigation of the BP Gulf oil spill in 2010. Halliburton signed a cooperation and guilty plea agreement. It will pay $200,000, the maximum fine, and will undergo three years of probation. The company with long-standing ties to former vice president Dick Cheney, Halliburton had previously made a voluntary $55 million contribution to the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, according to ThinkProgress.org.

PGE Smart Meter triggers Housefire, kills Homeowner

Are so-calledSmart Meter burns Man to Death “Smart” meters really smart? When a smart meter allegedly burns a man’s house down and he dies in his sleep, does anybody outside of his immediate family and neighbors notice?  Does anybody outside of those close to him notice then that smart meters are maybe not so smart?  Given their actual costs, in human life as well as in their real costs to the people saddled with them,  they may even be called criminally stupid.  The verdict is in on these meters:  They provide ZERO benefit for the people whose homes they are burning and frying with electromagnetic energies of the type that have been linked with cancer.  They have also been proven to inflate utility bills.

 

 

 

Smart Meter wrongful death lawsuit settled

A wrongful death lawsuit filed against Calif. utility PGE, a subcontractor, and a meter manufacturer,  has been settled with the man’s family for an undisclosed sum.

Smart Meter burns Man 

Larry Nikkel of 230 Arbor St., Vacaville, Calif., was killed after a Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) “smart meter” allegedly started a fire on July 9, 2010.  A suspicious electrical fire consumed Mr. Nikkel’s home the day after Wellington Energy, contractors for PG&E, installed a Landis & Gyr so-called “Smart” electric meter.

Microwave radiation – Smart Meter burns Man to Deathlike that emitted from “Smart” meters – usually kills slowly and insidiously after years of exposure, with DNA damage that can trigger cancer; but the dramatic circumstances surrounding Mr. Nikkel’s death show that “smart” meters  may also damage or kill in other ways. Mr. Nikkel’s death is not an isolated incident, a “one off” to be written off by federal government edicts and local utility enforcement entities that have foisted these unnecessary and dangerous things on millions of us without our knowledge or consent.

On July 8, 2010, according to neighbors, Wellington Energy installed electric smart meters to houses all along Mr. Nikkel’s street. Less than 48 hours later, Mr. Nikkel was dead from smoke inhalation as his house was incinerated due to an “unexplained” electrical fire.

Stopsmartmeters.org

Stopsmartmeters.org writes: “According to his brother Walter, who had spent time with Larry at his house the morning before the fire (and only hours after the smart meter was installed), there were serious electrical problems in the house that day.  Larry had tried to boot up his laptop to watch a DVD that evening, but the computer would not function.  The cable box did not work either.  Walter and Larry both heard a very loud, high pitched “snap” coming from the wall.  Later that night, after Walter had returned home, he received a call from Larry, who said that the ‘house was humming.’ He regrets to this day not coming over immediately to investigate what was wrong.”

Smart Meters also damage Appliances

According to electrical stop smart killerengineers, popping, humming and appliance damage are telltale signs of an electrical problem caused by arcing, possibly (especially in this case) from a meter.  Arcing can trigger fires and explosions.  (As stopsmartmeters.org documented in late 2010 in interview with a whistleblower from Wellington Energy, workers were encouraged to ignore safety hazards and only had 20 hours of training, violating FCC requirements that smart meters be installed by a professional electrician).  Mr. Nikkel’s death appears to be a direct result of the kind of violations uncovered by the whistleblower, whose reports were summarily ignored by the Calif. Public Utilities Commission.

On June 10, 2012, the Nikkel family filed a lawsuit against Pacific Gas and Electric, Wellington Energy, and Landis & Gyr meter manufacturers, alleging negligence and wrongful death.

Smart Meter case settled out of court

The case was settled out of court, showing that the utilities and meter manufacturers were alarmed about the potential to lose the case, as well as more bad publicity related to their meter program.  The settlement is far from ideal as it avoids a verdict that might force the utilities to compensate others who have suffered smart meter fires, or even to recall the dangerous meters.

The number of smart meter fires meanwhile continues to grow.  Last year, a Stamford, Conn., woman lost five members of her family to a fire she suspects was started by her so-called “smart” meter.  Her home was suspiciously bulldozed and its contents inexplicably and quickly removed 24 hours later, eliminating evidence that could have shown exactly why the fire started, and perhaps could have prevented future fires.

26 Smart Meter Fires and Explosions

In August 2012, Peco Energy of Pennsylvania was forced to suspend its deployment after at least 26 separate incidents where newly installed smart meters had caught fire or exploded.  The EMF Safety Network has tracked many of these fires here.

A June 15 2012 presentation by the Ontario Fire Marshal analyzes smart meter fires being reported in Canada and abroad, stating:

“We encountered an unusual amount of fire incidents involving smart meters. . . prior to any proper investigation the utility company had removed and replaced the meters from the affected areas. . . New meters may have defects that cause electrical failures (or they may be caused by) careless installation during change over. . . ”

Smart Meters not Smart

So-called Smart Meters are neither smart nor safe. Let’s all take action on a local front and stop smart meters from doing any more damage than they have already. If they don’t kill us quickly by fire, they’ll kill us slowly with cancer, or at the least, if we are unlucky enough to live close to them, they can interrupt our sleep and wreak havoc on our human body’s own natural electrical grid. All of our impulses are electric, all the synapses firing in our brains are electric and affected by electricity and microwave. There is no question but that smart meters can overlay our own personal grids and affect us in harmful ways. These things have not been properly tested before being released on us, but at least 2,000 research pieces have shown the hazards of microwave radiation like that emitted from so-called smart meters.

Smart Meters Dangers well known

The clever naming of Smart Meter burns Man to DeathSmart Meters fails to prove that they are smart or even safe.  Smart meter dangers are well known.  A mass body of scientific evidence shows increases in cancer and other adverse health effects in people exposed to pulsed radio frequency/microwave radiation such as that emitted by smart meters.  These meters are also known to cause fires.

 

 

Smart Meters emit Dangerous Microwave Radiation

The website www.bioinitiative.org documents more than 2,000 research studies showing the negative health effects of radio frequency/microwave and electromagnetic radiation.  Fifty two scientists and physicians from around the world have signed a document refuting the safety of so-called “Smart” meters.  The American Academy of Environmental Medicine has called for a moratorium on smart meters in homes and schools based on the documented health hazards of radio frequency/microwave radiation of smart meters. The World Health Organization has categorized radio frequency radiation as a Class 2B carcinogen. Did anyone ever ask you if it was ok to put something that causes cancer on your house and radiate you with it all day?

BP’s Corexit poisons all

The Government Bio HazardAccountability Project  (GAP) reports that whistleblowers throughout the Gulf of Mexico have revealed that British Petroleum’s use of Corexit (which is banned in BP’s home country, England) has caused devastating, long-term health effects for human beings and decimated ocean life. (Visit whistleblower.org)

GAP writes: “Our report – relying on over 25 whistleblowers from the region – concludes that the use of dispersant by BP and the federal government actually made the long-term effects of the spill on the Gulf and its residents worse, creating environmental and public health hazards on an incomprehensible scale.”

Wells Fargo scams Customers

wells-fargoWells Fargo scams Customers. Wells Fargo was ordered by a federal judge in May 2013 to pay $203 million for a checking scam. The class action case accused Wells Fargo of imposing excessive overdraft fees and of misleading its customers in order to collect on more overdrafts. The bank stands accused of processing purchases from the largest to the smallest rather than in chronological order in order to trigger more overdraft fees, which were excessive anyway, at $25-$35 a pop.

Lawyer Richard McCune, who represented about one million current and former Wells Fargo customers in California, said, “Wells Fargo was profiting off its most vulnerable customers, and this (decision) holds the banks accountable.”
