How Consumer Rights Are Denied While Oppressive Vested Interests Legislation Gets Passed
Currently, we live in a “time capsule” of corporate vested interests that will do everything, and just about anything, to get their vested interests and goals enacted into either federal legislation and/or individual state statutes.
The most ridiculous farce ever regarding such interests revolve around microwave technology, especially those business entities that promote microwave devices, cell towers, Wi-Fi including 4G and fast-tracked 5G communications. NO documented research proves microwaves are safe for humans, the environment and the Planet! But still, vested interests have ‘armies’ of lobbyists who ply their ‘trade’ to educate [convert] legislators to vote for their one-sided, fact-spun and parsed “consensus science.”
Public utilities, especially electric companies, have the financial resources, in-house corporate attorneys, and the ‘clout’ to accomplish their goals, often to the detriment of consumers’ welfare.
One of the more dramatic examples of how things work to get legislation passed can be found in the goings on in the State of Arizona. One of my networker researchers emailed the information, which I think readers ought to know, and check if there are similarities in what you may be opposing regarding AMI Smart Meters, utility rate hikes and overbillings, and the fast-tracked 5G to implement the Internet of Things and a one-world, surveilled society.
In Arizona, there was a bribery trial regarding the utility commission chairman that ended in a hung jury!
The bribery trial of former Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) chairman Gary Pierce ended in mistrial as the jury was deadlocked. Prosecutors have until August 13 to decide whether to retry the case.

A Utility-funded Harvard group has given tens of thousands of dollars in airfare, luxury hotels and meals to Arizona utility commissioners. Read all about it here.
A utility-funded group operating under the banner of Harvard University has given hundreds of thousands of dollars in free flights, expensive hotel rooms and swanky dinners to the state officials who are supposed to regulate the utilities funding the group.
The gifts have come via quarterly conferences that the group, the Harvard Electricity Policy Group, hosts for the utility regulators.
Five of Arizona’s Corporation Commissioners, who are responsible for regulating monopoly utilities including Arizona Public Service (APS), have attended the Harvard events for at least the past five years, according to documents provided by the Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) in response to public record requests.
Conflicts of interest were apparent, although “ACC commissioners knew about the conflict for a long time but did nothing, despite all their bragging about their new ‘Code of Ethics’.” You can enjoy reading about how that worked here.
The above is not ‘homegrown’ with the State of Arizona; it’s exemplary of what probably happens at some level in just about every state’s regulatory agencies in order to get proprietary and vested interests enacted into law.
Most U.S. states legislators have gone through some phases of lobbyists ‘arm twisting’ and ‘mind control’ regarding AMI Smart Meters, which deny citizens of their Federal and State Constitutional rights; customers’ rights to privacy; mandate consumers be subjected to electromagnetic frequencies that have been proven to cause cancer, fire-prone-non-grounded utility meters and hacking threats; and “paved the way” for even more dramatic millimeter wave exposures and health problems from an untested 5G agenda being rolled out to start very soon.
Many states are trying to cope with AMI Smart Meter opt-out issues.
Pennsylvania’s draconian and illegal Act 129 needs to be addressed, especially by researching why the retiring House Consumer Affairs Committee Chairman never, in 6 to 8 years, brought up for consideration numerous opt-out bills. Many Pennsylvanians think there is more to it than meets the eye, since that Chairman’s son worked as a manager for PECO Electric CO., an Exelon Company.
