The next meeting, May 19, of the Richmond City Council promises to be an interesting one. The entire agenda and supporting material can be viewed at http://sireweb.ci.richmond.ca.us/sirepub/meet.aspx.
The Richmond City Council will first take up mind altering substances and then plunge fully into the twilight zone of mind control, debating a resolution that may include, among other things, a ban on Chemtrails over Richmond.
The first, and more down to earth item involves approving a location for a marijuana dispensary in the Hilltop area at the site of the recently closed La Revolucion restaurant. This is Item H-1: APPROVE Richmond Compassionate Care Collective's request for a modification of their marijuana dispensary permit to relocate from their previously approved location to a new location at 3190 Klose Way - Police Department (Chief Chris Magnus 6210-1802).
Indications are that it will be hotly debated, with medicinal marijuana advocates on one side supporting expansion of the City’s current three dispensaries to a total of four to provide for Richmond’s vastly underserved patients. Richmond, moreover, has the only legal place-based dispensaries in two counties, Contra Costa and Marin, so it also has to service the two counties’ patient load in addition to its own (There are, however, delivery-only services in both Contra Costa and Marin).
On the other side of the weed debate are the Hilltop neighbors, both business and residential, who have spoken through Cesar Zapeda, President of the Hilltop District Neighborhood Council, saying enough is enough, citing the fact that Hilltop already has two dispensaries, and the proposed location is too close to parks, schools and movie theatres. What they really want at Hilltop is a simply a grocery store.
Then the City Council will move from the down to earth marketing of mind-altering agricultural products to mind control while an issue of substantially higher concern to the people of Richmond – space weaponry, Item I-1: ADOPT a resolution in support of the Space Preservation Act and the Space Preservation Treaty to permanently ban space-based weapons - Councilmember Jovanka Beckles (620-6568).
This is not as much about rockets and missiles as it is about the government messing with our minds. Interest in this lofty subject has been building for some time, reaching an apogee on April 7, 2015, when activists, including Planning Commissioner Marilyn Langlois, used Open Forum to draw our attention to not just a threat, but an ongoing and actual assault from space and high altitude weaponry on the people of Richmond. In closing, Langlois demanded the resolution that is now on the agenda.
On May 9, Contra Costa Times Columnist Tom Barnidge wrote:
Then there were three individuals who pleaded desperately for the council's help because they were being "targeted by technology." That one made me sit up. I've had problems with technology, especially when my stupid cell phone can't find any bars, but I never figure it to be part of a plot.
Marilyn Langlois, a former council candidate who sympathized with the targets' plight, offered a more detailed explanation of their request:
"To follow the footsteps of the Berkeley City Council, which in 2002 adopted a resolution supporting the Space Preservation Act HR3616, which was introduced by (Rep.) Dennis Kucinich, to prohibit any weaponization of space and provide only peaceful use for space research, so we could declare Richmond a space-free, weapons-free zone."
She cited some "exotic" weapons that could be scoping out Richmond residents at that very moment -- electronic, psychotronic, high-altitude ultra low-frequency weapons; plasma electromagnetic sonic and ultrasonic weapons; lasers; chemtrails. She didn't name a culprit, but obviously it's the government seeking mind control.
It's probably because Berkeley outlawed such weapons that they relocated to harass Richmond residents. If Richmond passes a resolution, look out El Cerrito.
This seems an especially appropriate time to take up this challenge before the end of the month because even though it is only National Barbecue Month, National Salad Month and National Hamburger Month in the food-obsessed U.S., for our friends across the border in Canada, May is UFO Month in Canada. They probably know something we don’t.
Not to be outdone by its archrival Berkeley, Richmond will now weigh now in, albeit 13 years late.
The proposed Richmond resolution supports the “Space Preservation Act,” undefined in the resolution, but presumably legislation first introduced by Rep. Dennis Kucinich 14 years ago.
The first Space Preservation Act, HR 2977, was introduced by Kucinich in 2001 and went nowhere. On January 23, 2002, he tried again, introducing HR 3616, which deleted references to
- particle beams
- electromagnetic radiation
- extremely low frequency (ELF) or ultra low frequency (ULF) energy radiation
- mind-control technologies
HR 3616 also went nowhere, although it garnered nine cosponsors including Rep. Barbara Lee.
Subsequently, on September 10, 2002, the Berkley City Council passed, on consent calendar, Resolution 61774:
RESOLUTION NO. 61744
RESOLUTION IN SUPPORT OF THE SPACE PRESERVATION ACT AND THE SPACE PRESERVATION TREATY TO PERMANENTLY BAN THE WEAPONIZATION OF SPACE
WHEREAS, the Space Preservation Act and the companion Space Preservation Treaty will establish a permanent ban on all space-based weapons, on the use of weapons to destroy or damage objects in space that are in orbit; and the permanent termination of research and development, testing, manufacturing, production and deployment of all space-based weapons; and
WHEREAS, the termination of the Anti-Ballistic Missile (ABM) Treaty on June 13, 2002 will permit research, development, testing, manufacturing, production and deployment of space-based weapons, thereby instigating a dangerous, costly, and destabilizing arms race in space, endangering all residents of Berkeley, the United States of America and all of humankind, and invading outer space, humanity’s weapons-free common heritage, with space-based weapons; and
WHEREAS, The Space Preservation Act, companion to the Space Preservation Treaty, introduced by U.S. Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio), requires the U.S. President to work toward “negotiating, adopting and implementing an international treaty banning space-based weapons and the use of weapons to destroy or damage objects in space that are in orbit;” and
WHEREAS, the Space Preservation Treaty will establish an outer space peacekeeping agency to monitor outer space and enforce the permanent ban of space-based weapons; and
WHEREAS, The Space Preservation Act and the Space Preservation Treaty facilitate future public and private investment in clean and safe technology, products and services, and in sustainable, non-weapons, expanded civil, commercial and military, world cooperative space ventures, and the consequent stimulation of the national and world economy. The Act and the Treaty do not prohibit activities including space exploration, space research and development, testing, manufacturing or deployment that is not related to space-based weapons or systems, or civil, commercial, or defense activities (including communications, navigation, surveillance, reconnaissance, early warning, or remote sensing) that are not related to space-based weapons or systems;” and
WHEREAS, the Space Preservation Act and the Space Preservation Treaty preserve the peaceful, cooperative uses of space for all residents of Berkeley and for all humankind; and
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED:
4) THAT IT IS THE WILL OF THE COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF BERKELEY THAT THE U.S. SENATE AND HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES ENACT AND THE U.S. PRESIDENT SIGN AND ENFORCE THE SPACE PRESERVATION ACT; and
2) THAT IT IS THE WILL OF THE COUNCIL THAT THE U.S. PRESIDENT, INDIVIDUALLY OR AT AN EMERGENCY TREATY CONFERENCE, SIGN THE SPACE PRESERVATION TREATY, AND THAT THE U.S. SENATE RATIFY IT TO PERMANENTLY BAN ALL SPACE-BASED WEAPONS TO PRESERVE THE COOPERATIVE, PEACEFUL USES OF SPACE FOR ALL RESIDENTS OF BERKELEY AND FOR ALL HUMANKIND; and
3) The Council of the City of Berkeley hereby declares that the space 60 kilometers and above the City of Berkeley is a space-based weapons free zone; and
4) This Resolution of the Council of the City of Berkeley is hereby recommended to be adopted by all Municipalities in the United States of America and worldwide.
What I have to grapple with is which version of the Space Preservation Act the Richmond City Council is being asked to support.
It is not even clear which version the Berkeley City Council supported in its resolution, since there were two versions. Presumably it would have been the most recent one, HR 3616.
There is concern, however, that unless the Richmond City Council specifically refers to HR 2977 of 14 years ago, the needs of Richmond residents may not be met because the latter version excludes chemtrails, particle beams, electromagnetic radiation, plasmas , extremely low frequency (ELF) or ultra low frequency (ULF) energy radiation or mind-control technologies.
Also, unlike the Berkeley resolution, which banned space based weapons 60 kilometers over Berkeley, the Richmond version neither bans them nor sets an altitude limit, a serious shortcoming that should be addressed.
It’s not easy being mayor.
