    Default Take Back Your Power - 2017 smart meter documentary

    Take Back Your Power 2017 (Official) - smart meter documentary




    Josh del Sol
    Published on 23 Aug 2018



    The award-winning documentary TAKE BACK YOUR POWER 2017 uncovers the shocking story behind why hundreds of local governments and millions of ratepayers are standing against the multi-billion dollar rollout of 'smart’ utility meters. Take a journey of revelation, examining evidence of in-home surveillance, hundreds of home fires and several fatalities, systemic over-billing, health risks, unprecedented hacking vulnerability, and even extortion.

    The insightful and often astounding new material in this 2017 final cut exposes the agenda behind smart meters with even more clarity. And the way to solution is also opened, as the forthcoming sequel – the InPower Movement – is introduced.

    With compelling insight from whistleblowers, government agents, lawyers, doctors, researchers and environmentalists, Josh del Sol’s TAKE BACK YOUR POWER investigates the claimed benefits and emerging risks of a profit-based global initiative that seeks to change the way we live. What you’ll discover will surprise, unsettle and ultimately empower you.

    Thank you Norman, well worth watching. I smelled a rat when these were first proposed & vowed never to have one.
    Here's a good UK site for those 'new' to the controversy, although there are others....

    Hello Everyone:

    I hate my smart meter BUT you won't have power in Alberta if you don't accept the smart meter. You don't get to say yes or no. You get home and it's installed.
    Anyone in Alberta know how to get the smart meter removed?

    I find this control like what they are doing with the internet.... Please see my post on that.
    Its control over the one's that don't either have a clue or a choice. Hell ... Florida makes it almost illegal to go off the grid and supply your own electricity. If I had a house I would have one of Musk's wall and solar roof thing he does.



    I live full time in a 28' RV 96 safari trek with 400 watts of solar panels and all led for my lighting, almost finished with that.
    I stay at a RV park right now that costs me $350 a month which includes water sewage, trash and internet then plus electric power which is now running me $18 a month after improving my RV self capabilities.. This works for me on my meger SS. Don't travel much because these things are gas hogs. I also have an electric mountain bike that gets me around town which I can power off my panels. It cost me $225 plus shipping. My fridge goes either electric or LP gas... LP gas runs me 1/3 price of electric. I plan on buying better lithium batteries for my RV when I save up in 3 months if I save..

    If I owned land and had access to a running stream there are some really good mini turbines that can help with your energy load.




    Very important video.......they want to throttle your energy just like the internet and make you more dependent on the energy companies.

    You're on the right track--diminish, then eliminate the dependence on the power grid.

    We were deceived from the beginning. Tesla technology could have been used for free energy for all. Instead, technology was usurped and weaponized.

    We can set a collective intention to make the usurpers (power & tech companies) obsolete and implement innovative solutions. In my cosmology, this is where we are headed.

    No fight. No conflict. Just walk away.

    We will figure this out and do it.

    I had some friends that made a homemade little wood stove for their RV. I've always loved that idea. I had a wood stove in my cabin. Sometimes I used it for cooking, even though I had a gas stove. It was great for heat. I used my oil lamps when the electricity went out. There was a creek next to the cabin. For short periods of time, I was off the grid, and it felt so good.

    Even now, once having had that experience, I know We don't really NEED the power companies. Soon, they will be gone. Especially when people realize they are weaponizing our homes with Smart meters, Smart Grids, the Internet of Things, fusion centers, and their integrative systems using Directed Energy Weapons.

    That's why this film is so important. We need to realize what's really going on here.

    this is so sad, we live in an apartment block and can't do anything about it... I now have a hunch why my health took a turn when these things were installed this year...

    I've cut and pasted this below from : https://www.globalhealingcenter.com/...ter-radiation/

    How to Protect Yourself from Smart Meter Radiation

    Smart meters have become increasingly prevalent in homes across the world. Their advertised intent is to provide an accurate and concise measurement of home energy usage. However, concerns plague the minds of researchers and everyday individuals over the safety and health effects of these measurement systems. Are smart meters safe? According to the FCC, the World Health Organization, and the FDA, the broadcasting frequencies emitted by smart meters are safe and do not pose a significant concern to human health.

    Of course, the WHO also notes that the same radio frequencies used by smart meters may be a potential carcinogen. [1] In other words, the WHO recognizes smart meters as safe, yet recognizes the potential to cause cancer. Does anyone understand the logic behind these two contradictory statements?

    How Do Smart Meters Work?
    Smart meters work with two types of radio frequencies: 900MHz and 2.4 GHz. Unlike a cell phone, laptop, or wireless network, you can’t turn off a smart meter. Radiation from this device is being projected through your environment every second of the day.

    Many people have complained of unexplained health issues and troubling symptoms following the installation of smart meters in their home. Some of these symptoms include insomnia, fatigue, problems focusing, disorientation, neuropathy, sinus issues, thyroid problems, hyperactivity, and more.

    To reduce or eliminate this potent source of RF radiation, you either have to remove the smart meter from your premises or protect yourself from the effects of its high-frequency radiation. Since the first option can be costly and may not be practical, there are a few products on the market that may help protect against the harmful effects smart meter radiation has on the body and mind.

    1. Smart Meter Guard (Faraday Cage) – $130.
    This aluminum-mesh cage almost seems too simple to work. To use, all you need to do is place the guard over the smart meter, completely encapsulating the device. That’s it. If needed, you can tighten one of the bolts to provide a better fit. Tests have shown this guard reduces smart meter radiation by 98%. While the guard is steeper in price compared with other options, the upside is that it’s effective, simple, and hassle free. For more information, visit their website. Also, check out these video tests:

    Outside the Home
    YouTube Video
    EMF Radiation Blocked! Smart Meter EMF Radiation Protection



    Inside the Home



    Length: 2 minutes

    2. Smart Meter Block by Smart Meter Shields, Inc. – $89
    Similar in concept to the Smart Meter Guard, this economical shield also fits over any smart meter. Made of nickel-coated copper, the Smart Meter Block offers a durable structure designed to endure the elements. The product comes with size-adjusting inserts and a Velcro tension strap to secure the meter. In tests, the shield demonstrates a 99% effectiveness for blocking smart meter radiation. You can also purchase metallic mesh sheets to attach to the wall inside the house for additional shielding. For more information, check out their website.

    3. DIY Smart Meter Shield – $55
    Instead of purchasing a ready-made shield, why not make your own? All you need is Reflectix double-sided bubble insulation and aluminum foil tape. Once you’ve gathered these tools, simply follow the YouTube instructional guide (see below). Compared with three different smart meters, this DIY smart meter shield reduced radiation by 90%.

    YouTube Video
    DIY Smart Meter Shield: light-duty, temporary, portable

    Length: 3 minutes

    4. RF/EMF Smart Meter Wall Absorbers/Reflectors by LessEMF, Inc.
    Wall shielding materials from LessEMF have been shown to reduce smart meter radiation by up to 95% and are available in many different forms. These forms include wall fabric reflectors (RipStop Silver or Ni/Cu RipStop), wall paints (YShield and CuPro-Cote), and drapes for windows (VeilShield and High Performance Silver Mesh). To maintain protective effects, make sure to protect all shielding materials from moisture, flexing, and abrasion. To learn more, click here.

    5. Just Say NO!
    If you prefer not to have a smart meter installed, make your decision known. “Say No to Smart Meters” labels can be purchased from RefuseSmartMeters.com. These labels are meant to demonstrate public opinion over the right to choose against smart meter installation.

    According to Refuse Smart Meters, you have the right to:

    SAY NO to the Health Effects of Radiation
    SAY NO to Increased Utility Costs
    SAY NO to Required Appliance Replacements
    SAY NO to Invasion of Privacy
    SAY NO to Remote Shut Downs
    SAY NO to Uninsurable Consequences
    One Final Thought
    If anyone chooses to get a cell phone with an RF of 2.4 GHz and hold it against his or her head, that’s their choice. Smart meters, however, are quickly becoming mandatory. They are being placed by power companies (typically with government support) in our homes and places of business. According to these organizations, we don’t have a choice in being bombarded with smart meter radiation. It’s becoming increasingly forced on us, our family, and those around us.

    It’s up to us, as individuals, to take responsibility for our health, our family’s health, and the health of our community. To learn more about smart meter concerns, take a look at the complaints and frequently asked questions over at EMF Safety Network.

    #5 is most important because the power companies are operating through "Tacit Agreement".

    If you don't SAY NO, they are assuming you say yes.

    The more people that say NO, the more powerful our voice becomes.

    I was called, by a dutifully faithful phone sales rep of a subcontractor of the company I buy my phone, broadband, gas and electric from. That was a couple of months ago.



    I had a 5 minute defencive rant at her with not no but hell no ( smart meter ).


    She said they might add a fee if I refuse to have one. All I could say, at the time, was, "Yea, that's probably the way they will go about it".


    Anyway, I told her I didn't want a smart meter anywhere near me.


    There's another factor, in my case. There is almost zero cell tower signal at my house. A smart meter would be cranking away at full power 24/7 trying to handshake with a cell tower. She had almost no idea what I was talking about and definitely nothing to say about it.


    I hope the call was recorded and listened to at the highest level.

    There are many minions like her that don't know what they are doing or talking about.

    It's a daunting task, but I intend to help wake up the minions. I'll share a few articles I wrote about this a little later today.

    Good for you!

    How Your Constitutional Right to Privacy Just Became a "Privilege" in the Eyes of Courts

    Friday, August 31st 2018 at 10:30 am Written By:
    Josh del Sol Beaulieu





    A Federal Appeals Court in Illinois has ruled that “smart” meters facilitate government search – but called this practice “reasonable”. This story involves a collusion between big corporations, courts and a fake-grassroots organization

    Sometimes, trusting the wrong people can hurt. Betrayal is one of the worst feelings. Especially when it comes to those who are supposed to be protecting you and your family's rights.



    Over the past couple weeks, I've been hearing from several sources about this supposed “win” against utilities pushing “smart” meters. This report, disseminated by Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), is about a recent Federal Appeals Court ruling on “smart” meter surveillance, in Naperville, Illinois. This so-called journalism by EFF is titled, “Win! Landmark Seventh Circuit Decision Says Fourth Amendment Applies to Smart Meter Data.”

    But having seen how it was positioned exactly polar opposite of this report from K.T. Weaver - who lives in Naperville and has been reporting independently on “smart” meter harm for several years - I needed to figure out just what the hell is going on. The title of K.T.'s article is “Federal Court Rules against Consumers on Smart Meters and Privacy Rights.” So, why are the reports so different?

    My "aha!" moment on EFF came when, in corresponding with K.T., he sent me this Brasscheck interview with Yasha Levine, a respected truth-teller and author of Surveillance Valley. I have been following some of Yasha's work for several years with great interest.

    Before we get into examining Yasha’s claim that the EFF is a giant piece of astroturf, let's dive straight into the facts of the recent court ruling on “smart” meters and privacy.

    This development has everything to do with our basic human rights, how legal strategies are being implemented to work against the people, and whom we can and cannot trust when seeking justice.

    "Smart" Meters are becoming a horror story

    A smart Corporatocracy


    This is about a lot more than just smart meters. I can't recommend it highly enough. It's about the "smart" corporatocracy takeover. Think China, rolled out across the planet.


    Question: what's the difference between a politburo at the head of a Communist state and the boardroom at the head of a global corporation?


    Answer: Nothing.

    I saw the documentary yesterday and thought I'd post it here but it seems it's already been posted. So I'm bumping this up instead.

    Yes, a very good video.

    The old analogue meter gave a physical reading on a number of dials on the front of the unit. It was constructed in such a way that any power used would turn the dials accordingly. It could be bypassed, but it could not be tampered with. In other words, it was completely reliable as a real and true indicator of power consumption that could be trusted by both the consumer and the power company.

    Problem is the turning dials take power to turn and multiplied over millions of meters it is a fixed cost to the power company. And this compounded by the army of meter readers is the 4% energy waste the power companies claim they now save with this new smart meter.

    The trade-off is that the new meter is electronic and subject to an alterable program. That is, the power consumption is interpreted by a program that cannot be verified as accurate, routinely or otherwise, by the consumer.

    Add to this the ability to physically turn off power to the home it is connected to (which makes it a fire hazard due to mechanical moving parts), ability to communicate both peer-to-peer and directly to the control tower (health issues attributed to RF radiation), the issue of right to access, and the fact that the cost of driving the meter has been transferred to the consumer side of the power link, has caused a great deal of contention between the public on the one side and government and the corporations that are pushing this technology through via often questionable practices on the other.

    These are some of the issues discussed (paraphrased, some personally expounded upon):

    - installers are not electricians, take a 2 week course

    - there is no legal requirement to comply

    - this seems to be an issue of corporatocracy - the systematic divestment of the public trust to companies not fully liable under international law

    - no privacy - capable of tracking all household activities

    - money-maker - selling this personal data to third parties - and protected by legislation

    - all data stored - can be mined to assemble very accurate personal profiles

    - seems based on a scarcity principle, although not well explained why

    - health effects - standards set too high while studies from 1960s shows ill effects from 1/10th the exposure, personal testimonies

    - 'dirty' electricity - cause most of the ill effects - although claimed otherwise, electricians do not know about this and if they do they cannot explain it or mitigate its effects without further training

    - tied to fascism...

    - seems to be an organized cover-up from a very high level

    - the whole scam works on implied consent and the fear of the uninformed

    - is a symptom of the disease and not the disease itself

    Forget about it
