Paranoid callers beg California town for help after it adopts symbolic ban on space weaponry

After a California town adopted a resolution last month against space-based weaponry, its police department and mayor’s office have been inundated by phone calls from people who fear they’ve been targeted by intergalactic instruments of death.

Mayor Tom Butt said the calls began coming from all over the world after the Richmond City Council passed a resolution May 19 in support of a 2001 bill introduced by then-Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) banning the use of space weapons, reported KNTV.

“It is imperative that Richmond adopt this resolution in effort to stand in solidarity with residents who claim to be under assault from space-based weapons that should be outlawed by the Space Preservation Act,” said Councilwoman Jovanka Beckles, who introduced the resolution that passed 5-2.

The congressional resolution – which warned against chemtrails, particle beams, electromagnetic radiation, plasmas, extremely low-frequency or ultra high-frequency energy radiation, and mind control technology – was never passed.

Beckles said she introduced Richmond’s resolution to address the concerns of a resident who believes she has been targeted by “remote transmission” from space-based weaponry, and elected officials heard testimony from speakers who made similar claims — including one man who said he was zapped repeatedly outside council chambers.

“No where in the United States, no targeted individual can get this support,” said Amy Lee Anderson, who brought the matter to the councilwoman’s attention. “We just needed one person, one city. Because of that, you all are our heroes. We are dying within because the technology is so sophisticated. It’s hard for someone who has no experience to fathom it, it’s so sophisticated.”

Beckles gained the support of other council members who opposed the “Star Wars” anti-nuclear program proposed by former President Ronald Reagan — but that support wasn’t particularly enthusiastic.

“I’m going to support the resolution for the simple reason that we have voted on a lot of dumb ideas,” said Councilman Nat Bates.

Nearby Berkeley passed a similar ban in 2002, although the issue has fallen off the radar in the past decade.

Once Beckles’ resolution passed, the calls started coming in from people all over the world who fear they’ve been targeted by surveillance, mind control, and nanotechnology, the TV station reported.

“Richmond now seems to be known as the ‘resource or helpers’ for folks from many states with a myriad of mental health and other problems,” said police Chief Chris Magnus.

Butt, along with Councilman Vinay Pimplé, voted against the resolution, and Vice Mayor Jael Myrick said he now regrets supporting Beckles.

“It has become clear in the past two weeks that this resolution is being used by some to validate very dangerous conspiracy theories that may be having a real negative impact on the lives of people with serious mental illness and those around them,” Myrick said.

‘Signs of a coming conflict are everywhere’: Why a 2nd Civil War would be quite different from the 1st

Published

on

In 2020, the United States has been rocked by everything from a deadly pandemic and a brutal recession to civil unrest in a long list of cities to fears that violent conflicts will occur either on Election Day or after the election. Journalist Matthew Gault, in an article published by Vice this week, wonders if the political divisions in the United States run so deep that the country is headed for another civil war.

Describing the unrest that has occurred this year, Gault writes, "People are marching in the streets, aligned with two ideologically distinct factions. Many of them, overwhelmingly from one side, are armed, and violence and death has resulted when these two sides have clashed. The signs of a coming conflict are everywhere."

A fake ‘intelligence staffer’ crafted the groundwork for the Trump conspiracy theories about Hunter Biden

Published

on

It's unclear why President Donald Trump and his allies have chosen to attack Vice President Joe Biden's last living son as a key tenant to the 2020 reelection instead of focusing on his opponent himself. But according to a well-researched NBC News report by Ben Collins and Brandy Zadrozny, the "documents," actually came from a fake person that never existed using a profile photo created by an artificial intelligence face generator.

Months ago, there was a fake "intelligence" document about Hunter Biden that popped up online along with tons of "files" from a supposed laptop. None of it was real and it has all been dismissed by Trump's own associates as fake. But now it's being revealed that the company behind the effort was a fake "intelligence firm" called Typhoon Investigations, researchers and public documents revealed.

BUSTED: Commerce Secretary was on board of Chinese joint venture — while running Trump’s trade war

Published

On Thursday, Foreign Policy reported that Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross remained on the board of a Chinese joint venture — even while he was tasked with overseeing President Donald Trump's trade war.

"In Chinese corporate documents obtained by Foreign Policy, Ross is listed as serving on the board of a Chinese joint venture until January 2019 — nearly two years into his term as commerce secretary," reported Isaac Stone Fish. "That joint venture, now called Huaneng Invesco WLR (Beijing) Investment Fund Management Co., is an investment partnership formed in September 2008 between Huaneng Capital Services, the U.S. management company Invesco, and a firm Ross founded, WL Ross & Co. Huaneng Capital Services is an arm of China Huaneng Group, a major state-owned power producer."
