Easily Preventable Disasters, Like the Following, Are Occurring Due to California State, City and County Ignorance and Negligence
Similar disasters could occur all over California IF our CA Legislators vote through 2021’s State Telecom Bills: SB.556, AB.537 and SB.378 . . . so, please Call the CA Legislators today and ask them to VOTE NO on all three bills . . . and tell them to read the truth at Liarless.com.
Disastrous so-called “Small” Cell WTFs
Wireless Telecommunications Facilities (WTFs) of any size or any “G” — with insufficiently regulated power output which are THEN PLACED next to homes — are a real disaster. Willful ignorance and negligence by key departments and individuals in San Francisco’s local government have created hazards that are not covered by any insurance policy: injuries, illnesses or deaths from RF Electromagnetic Microwave Radiation (RF-EMR). That means the owner/builder/operator of any so-called “small” Wireless Telecommunications Facility (sWTF), the Wireless carrier using the sWTF and the City that issued the permit for the sWTF CAN GET NO INSURANCE to cover such claims. This negligence places the city’s financial solvency in substantial (and unnecessary) risk. There are already documented incidents in San Francisco, including for the woman who was living at 3535 Sacramento Street — the excessive RF Electromagnetic Microwave Radiation (RF-EMR) that forced her to move IS STILL being transmitted into the 2nd-story flats shown in the photos on this web page. Here are the facts:
- This sWTF had NOT COMPLETED federally-mandated NEPA review (Note: San Francisco was fully warned).
- The Appeal to NOT place this sWTF in front of this home was DENIED, but this one worked.
- The SF-DPH ignored its 2003 Precautionary Principle.
- SF-DPH personnel are NOT properly trained to measure RF-EMR.
- SF-DPH just rubber stamps sWTF applications, without completing sufficient due diligence.
- SF City Attorneys lack the spines required to weed out the obvious corruption and lack the will to protect the residents by providing sufficient wireless telecommunications service AND ACTUAL PUBLIC SAFETY.
What Was the Result?
THE RESULT: Five months after losing her appeal and three months after powering on the sWTF (which happened in November 2019), the woman living there needed emergency surgery to remove a bloody-mass from her brain, leaving her with a shaved head, a zipper scar and a permanent displacement from her home. THANKS FOR NOTHING, Dr. Tomás J. Aragón, the man who headed SF-DPH at that time and who was, as a mandated reporter, made fully aware of these endangering conditions on October 22, 2019 — BEFORE THIS sWTF WAS POWERED ON. What happened to him? In Jan 2021, he was promoted to head the California State Dept of Health. Go figure . . . and read more, below.
Will CA Senators and Assemblymembers grow some morals and NOT VOTE THROUGH three CA 2021 Telecom Bills to streamline deployment of Wireless Telecommunications Facilities (WTFs) —
- SB.556: the “Demolish Local Control & Child Endangerment Wireless” Bill
- AB.537: the “Deemed Permit-Approved, Deemed Permit-Issued WTF” Bill
- SB.378: the “Cheap Micro-Trenching & No Public Access to Fiber” Bill
. . . UNTIL . . .
the California State Public Health Officer — Tomás J. Aragón, M.D., Dr. P.H. (the smiling man in the photo) — completes the assignment given to him by the San Francisco Board of Appeals in this July 3, 2019 letter? Aragón worked on this assignment from July, 2019 until December 2019 when he then sent his completed work to the CA Dept. of Public Health for their input — effectively assigning the task to himself (one year in advance of assuming his current position). Poetic justice? The assignment was to evaluate the current available science about the biological effects of 24/7 exposure to RF Electromagnetic Microwave Radiation (RF-EMR) from wireless infrastructure, including the scientific articles in a large black binder, being hefted by SF Board of Appeals President Rick Swig (see photo, below) — hundreds of scientific studies that were compiled by Joel Moskowitz, PhD, Aragón’s former boss at the University of California, Berkeley, and that were provided by San Francisco-resident Cheryl Lea Hogan.
An overpowered sWTF was constructed and powered on — right in front of Hogan’s second-story window. The sWTF that had not undergone mandated NEPA review before it was powered on — on or around Nov 20, 2019 About three months later, Cheryl had a bloody mass removed from her brain — on Mar 2, 2020. The night before her surgery, she called her friends and asked us to tell the San Francisco Board of Appeals what had happened to her. The photos on this page show how close this overpowered antenna was installed from Cheryl’s home; the photo at the top was taken from her bedroom on November 20, 2019 (see the correspondence with the City of San Francisco here).

The Black Binder of hundreds of peer-reviewed scientific studies of Biological Harms from RF-EMR — evidence that has been in the City of San Francisco’s and the State of California’s Public Record Since 2019
The San Francisco Board of Appeals (“SF-BOA”) assignment to SF-DHH was to review the current peer-reviwed science on the biological effects of RF-EMR and then to update the June 14, 2010 SF-DPH Memo by Dr. Rajiv Bhatia re: Health Effects and Regulation of Wireless Communications Networks. (See fail, endanger, latest)
Note: Dr. Tomás J. Aragón, M.D. is a mandated reporter for conditions of child endangerment and Dr. Aragón, was informed on October 22, 2019, with substantial written evidence of child endangering conditions created by sWTFs in San Francisco and Sacramento — in front of witnesses and in the San Francisco public record. The evidence shows that the placement and operation of so-called “small” Wireless Telecommunications Facilities (sWTFs) at insufficiently regulated power output being placed as close as 6 to 12 feet from residences are endangering conditions which have already resulted in substantial injuries to multiple Californians, causing both child and adult endangerment.
This is a critically important matter that Dr. Aragón, and the State of California must address BEFORE any more votes are taken on SB.556, AB.537 or SB.378. If more time is needed by Dr. Aragón, then the CA Legislature can simply postpone further deliberations on SB.556, AB.537 or SB.378 until January 2022, making them two-year bills in the 2021-2022 Legislative Session.
We, the people of California demand that Tomás J. Aragón, M.D. finally complete this long overdue assignment. Those who value government of the people, by the people and for the people cannot tolerate any more willful ignorance or negligence as that exhibited from July 2019 through June 2021 (nearly two years). The people of California cannot accept any hollow, unsubstantiated, COVID-19 excuses for not completing this critically important work. Dr. Aragon, will you serve all Californians by completing this long overdue assignment by July 1, 2021? We will be following up.
Battling Propaganda, Side-By-Side
It has been a difficult challenge in 2021 for the public to engage with the CA State government to present evidence that would convince any objective person why voting for SB.556, AB.537 and SB.378 is NOT IN THE BEST INTERESTS of California’s cities, counties or residents. The public has run into a buzz saw of arbitrary rules and protocols that are nonsense, once one considers the actual hard evidence that refutes the false narrative repeated by the “Mainstream Media” about the alleged COVID-19 “controla-virus plandemic” and alleged need for experimental gene therapy injections— injections that are being falsely portrayed as vaccines, which they could not be, without full FDA approval. As we all know, full FDA approval of any vaccine would require 4-5 more years of study.
At the State Capitol, time and time again, we run into obstacles and hear from Senate and Assembly Security personnel “my orders are to enforce the rules/protocols”, but when the public asks to read the rules being enforced, the response has been “we don’t have to show you the rules.” Yes, that is what is going on. We have video evidence to prove it. Many of the CA Legislature’s rules and protocols in 2021 are arbitrary and capricious — they do not withstand scrutiny and must end, hopefully as soon as June 15, 2021 (yet this post by the League of California cities is troubling).
This website will rely on the following two-column format to refute much of the false propaganda which is being repeated in the Senate and Assembly standing committees as some kind of “justification” for voting against the interests of California’s cities, counties and residents. In the left column, first read the transcribed comments and view the short video clips (at the time codes specified) and then look to the right for the corresponding rebuttal. This is shown clearly, below, and in more detail in the rebuttal of Asm. Randy Voepel’s comments from June 9.
Wireless Lies: sWTFs Qualify for FCC-mandated Special Benefits
The Wireless industry’s entire agenda to streamline deployment of so-called “Small Wireless Facilities” everywhere is crumbling before our very eyes — due to the FCC being serial losers in the US Courts of Appeals in 2019-2021, because the definition of “Small Wireless Facility” got vacated in the August 2019 ruling in Case No. 18-1129, Keetoowah et al. v FCC. — leaving all other alleged federal benefits for sWTFs without foundation.
This means that the very FCC rules to which CA’s 2021 three Telecom bills refer (47 C.F.R. Sect 1.6001 et seq.) are built on quicksand and may be set aside by active cases that are proceeding towards rulings in the DC Circuit Court of Appeals and the US Supreme Court.
As an intro, view from 0:00 to 2:05
CA’s three misguided Telecom bills in 2021 (SB.556, AB.537 & SB.378) are merely a repeat, a mulligan, a re-do of CA 2017’s SB.649, which was vetoed by Gov. Jerry Brown, preserving local control over the placement of wireless infrastructure. This do-over, four years later, now splits the content of SB.649 across three new bills, which is a common trick by the Wireless industry.
Nearly All sWTFs Exceed FCC RF Guideline; view from 2:50 to 4:20
Votes for Senate Bills 556 (Dodd), AB.537 (Quirk) and SB.378 (Gonzalez) will likely create nothing but significant harms, unrest, expensive time-consuming legal controversy and unfunded liabilities due to a lack of available insurance to cover claims for injury, illness or death from the emissions of the toxic pollutant, EMF/RF Electromagnetic Microwave Radiation (RF-EMR) pollution.
Liarless Truth: sWTFs are Just Like Any Other Cell Tower
The FCC now actually regulates “Small Wireless Facilities” just like any other cell tower of any size or any “G”. Current sWTFs output simply too much power and, therefore, should not be placed or operated in the public rights-of-way, until they complete individual environmental assessments as required by the FCC NEPA rule: 47 C.F.R. Sect 1.1307(b)(1),Table 1:
Oct 19, 2020 comment by Ms. Garnet Hanly, Division Chief of the Competition & Infrastructure Policy Division, FCC Wireless Telecommunications Bureau:
“The FCC when it modified its rules [Title 47, C.F.R. § 1.1312(e)] by its October 2019 Order, after the DC Circuit issued its mandate [in its Ruling of Case No. 18-1129 Keetoowah v FCC], we took the position that we were reviewing Small Wireless Facilities as undertakings and major Federal actions, pursuant to the DC Circuit decision and that is what we’ve been doing.”
FCC Rule Title 47 C.F.R §1.1307 states:.
“Commission actions granting . . . licenses to transmit . . . require the preparation of an Environmental Assessment (EA) if exposure to levels of radiofrequency radiation [are] in excess of the [FCC] limits.”
Table 1 of Title 47 C.F.R §1.1307 states:
(b)(1) “Evaluation required if Non-building-mounted antennas [have] height above ground level to lowest point of antenna <10 m and total power of all channels >1000 W ERP.
Every sWTF Requires NEPA review; view from 0:55–3:00 & 6:30–7:30 re: Dr. Aragón
Director and State Public Health Officer Tomás J. Aragón, M.D., Dr. P.H., the Director of the California Department of Public Health and the State Public Health Officer is a critically important official at the very center of the moral decision that he and every CA Senator and Assembly Member is facing — right now.
Big Wireless = Deception
The 4G/5G so-called “Small” Cell WTF Grid is Unnecessary & Disatrous
The proposed densified 4G/5G Wireless Telecommunications Facilities (WTFs) grid is unnecessary, energy-inefficient, dangerous and unconstitutional. So-called “small” Wireless Telecommunications Facilities (sWTFs) constructed on utility poles, light poles and traffic signals are way overpowered (25-30 million times higher than needed for 5-bars phone service). Such irresponsibly placed and operated sWTFs create significant harms to public safety, privacy and property values — they are part of an unconstitutional 24/7 Wireless Surveillance and Crowd Control Grid — which no state or town should allow to be built in residential neighborhoods.
Shady Cross-Subsidies Created the Digital Divide — On Purpose
The densifed 4G/5G sWTF network was and continues to be built with an estimated $500 Billion that was misappropriated by Telecom Holding Cos. via shady cross-subsidies that vilolate the 1996 Telecommunications Act (1996-TCA §254(k)). Ratepayer funds collected on our phone bills — from the mid-1990’s to the present — to upgrade our copper wires to fiber optic cables were diverted from State Public Telecommunications Utilities (SPTUs) and given to private Wireless Subsidiaries so the Telecom Holding Cos. could maximize thier profits and avoid paying state taxes. California could simply stop these cross subsidies and right the ship!
The People of CA Need Fiber Optics Directly to Every Home and Business
FTTP means two things: Fiber Optics to the Premises and Freedom to the People . . . the freedom to get fast, reliable, affordable, secure and energy-efficient broadband service by wire and then choose to use Ethernet wires or a wireless router inside. Californians should not be forced to endure the excessive pollution required for wireless broadband. There is no need to pollute every neighborhood to ruin the quiet enjoyment of streets (and homes) with excessive electromagnetic power through-the-air for wireless broadband. Instead, Californians can demand broadband via fiber optic cables directly to every home and business — the upgrade for which the public already paid billions of dollars.
