American opposition to 5G is about more than biological (see 1, 2) and environmental risks and consequences (see 1, 2, 3). Federal agencies and other experts warn that it threatens national security, public safety and weather forecasting accuracy (see 1, 2, 3). Also predicted: massive job loss.
5G warnings have become so prominent that they have been featured in Dilbert comic strips. Cities worldwide AND entire countries have taken action to ban, delay, halt, and limit 5G installation AS WELL AS issue moratoriums.
In 2019, telecom executives gave congressional testimony that they had NO scientific evidence that 5G is safe AND there already IS research confirming that it is NOT safe. Regardless, last month Trump reintroduced his proposal to have a national 5G plan. After scrapping his re-nomination of a controversial veteran FCC commissioner, he has nominated another telecom guy who just happens to specialize in 5G security which some experts say simply isn’t possible.

Trump picks former Brightstar exec for FCC commissioner seat
President Trump plans to nominate Nathan Simington, currently a senior advisor in the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), to the FCC, the White House announced on Tuesday. The nomination must be confirmed in the Senate.
Simington served as senior counsel to Brightstar Corporation from June 2017 until June 2020, when he joined the NTIA as senior advisor. At NTIA, he works on spectrum allocation, 5G security and internet freedom issues, the latter of which timely correlates to his nomination to the FCC.
Trump had nominated current FCC Republican Commissioner Michael O’Rielly for another term on the FCC, but abruptly withdrew that in August, presumably after O’Rielly gave a speech where he expressed concerns about regulating social media content.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is supposed to protect Americans by regulating the telecom industry. They have a long history of catering to the industry instead. Current chairman, Ajit Pai, refers to this approach as being “not heavy handed” and the agency has become more reckless during the Trump administration (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12).
Despite research proving harm, they refuse to update 24-year old federal RF radiation exposure guidelines. Lawsuits have been filed against the agency for NOT protecting Americans from unsafe levels of radiation as well as 5G deployment on land (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5) and in space.
In addition to filing lawsuits, municipal governments have passed resolutions to ban deployment until studies prove it’s safe (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6) and ordinances to limit and/or control installation. State representatives in Hawaii and Illinois have introduced 5G bills to protect constituents. Congress members have also confronted the agency regarding safety issues.
Since 2018, there have been reports of people and becoming sick after 5G was installed (see 1, 2, 3, 4). Of course exposure to other sources of wireless radiation can also cause symptoms and illnesses. In fact, last year the World Health Organization warned that high levels of Electromagnetic Fields (aka “Electrosmog”) – including wireless radiation – could lead to health issues in 30% of the population.
