Have You Been CON’d Yet?


Most of you are aware, or are coming to an awareness, that you have been conned or duped by globalists now controlling our money, our media, and our military.  You don’t have to watch movies like “Inside Job” nor read books like Michael Lewis’ “The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine” to come to the realization that pathocracy is currently prevailing.  Evidence is compounding at a staggering rate through the Internet, through social media networking, through a common concern of the conscientious.   There are initiatives to control and thwart this flow of information, this freedom of information.  Take heart, there is a ground swell occurring uniting good people of conscience through community endeavors.  We all know the difference between right and wrong and it is up to all of us to act accordingly.  There are even nations now, like Iceland, acting accordingly.  There is the Occupy Movement which should be more of a worldwide tar and feather campaign supported by local enforcement.  To do nothing is being just as guilty as those unconscionable perpetrators.

Please be patient with me as I give you a little more perspective to ultimately and hopefully guide you in your community endeavors.

At one point in time here in Maple Valley, Washington, we owned and managed a community network and presented to our community an opportunity to take over the network so as to concentrate on our core business, community broadband architects.  You can only bang your head against the wall for so long and unfortunately the city’s shortsightedness and other factions led to us selling off the customer base so we could move on.  I mention this as I don’t recall having any network outages of any significance and we were always quite responsive to local customers and those applications that we hosted, albeit basic ones like e-mail and websites, were always accessible to both local citizens and businesses.

Recently we had an extremely rare ice storm which knocked out power lines and the Internet as well, while making roads and even walking hazardous due to falling branches and slippery conditions.  Some of my neighbors are almost a week without power as I can hear the steady drone of their generators.  The storm accentuated the need for emergency preparedness and not just for disasters especially with communications to coordinate activities.  Fortunately, we have a power substation across the street providing power to a major cell tower on our property so the chances of loosing power are somewhat lessened.  We also have HAM licenses and even a HAM repeater on the premises.

Communities need to own and operate the own open access networks.  When I say community I’m not referring to local government and the associated bureaucracy which seemingly gets out of control and becomes unwieldly and costly.  I’m talking about the citizens, all local citizens, and fostering mutual respect through community regardless of race, religion, creed, or political beliefs.  How best to do that is open for discussion; but of course I’m an advocate of cooperacy and creating a community development cooperative to facilitate not just local business’ and residents’ voice, video, data and mobility requirements but more importantly have this same technology positioned in such a way to facilitate emergency communications. 

Most communities have identified the basic last-mile technologies:

  • DSL
  • Cable
  • Fiber
  • Wireless
    • 2.4 GHz (unlicensed)
    • 5.8 GHz (unlicensed)
    • 900 MHz (unlicensed)
    • 700 MHz (licensed)
    • 3G (licensed)
    • 4G (licensed)

There are other technologies such as satellite communications, other wireless spectrum, broadband over power lines and hybrid combinations as well.  More critical to a community than infrastructure is applications, local applications that serve the community’s needs.

For instance, imagine sitting in a local restaurant having a meal with your family.  In front of you on the wall is a digital television displaying local news with local business advertisements.  Remember you came to this restaurant as you were browsing the local community portal on your smart phone while grocery shopping.  As usual when you don’t eat before going to the grocery store you get hungry and today there are no free samples to indulge upon to stymie those hunger pangs.  While browsing on your smart phone the grocery store’s sale items you notice on the store’s digital signage an advertisement for a discount coupon at a nearby restaurant enticing you.   Things were slow for whatever reason and the restaurateur had decided to offer a free appetizer for the next two hours.   So here you are sitting in the restaurant gazing at some of daily menu specials also being displayed on the restaurant’s digital signage.  Almost simultaneously you receive an amber alert on your phone while information is also being displayed city-wide on the community’s networked digital signage in local restaurants, grocery stores, community center, schools, institutions, businesses, etc.  Local video and radio broadcasting is being interrupted with the latest news on the amber alert.  The community is now alerted and communicating and watchful.

Cloud computing certainly has some advantages but when cloud applications are inaccessible to the community they are useless as you no longer have any control.  Community cloud computing applications serve the community best by utilizing local resources.  The technology exists and community preparedness can be initiated through cooperacy.

A Community Owned Network is the only way to feel great about being CON’d.

Cooperatives Bridge More than the Digital Divide!


Bridging the digital divide has undoubtedly huge implications on realizing and resolving local economic and community empowerment concerns.  There are many initiatives worldwide using a co-operative structure to facilitate local broadband to bridge the digital divide.  Interestingly enough though, is that, if these initiatives were to raise their local perspective one notch higher from being a community broadband cooperative to a community development cooperative more than just the digital divide may be bridged.

Think about it!  Whatever their reason and purpose, true co-operative endeavors bridge religion, culture, race, creed, and political differences while fostering a mutual respect of members in attaining local self sustaining prosperity and empowerment whatever their cause.  Regardless of your neighbor’s different beliefs hopefully their basic ones are really no different than yours in seeking happiness for yourself, your family, your relatives, your friends, and your community.  As a member of a community development cooperative it doesn’t matter what your religious or political beliefs are, for you are united in a more worthy cause of mutual respect.

The Internet and social media networking have created a new and sometimes different awareness of world events that needs to be protected from central control and over regulation.  The best way that this can be achieved is through a local community development co-operative which capitalizes on local social resources.  The realization of local social capital can be far more effective than that of financial capital.

Those with faith in their advocacy of mutual respect, as well as churches regardless of religion, need to become united to fight a common war against the corporate tyranny led by the pathocracy of globalists of the New World Order rather than allow them to instigate wars through false flags.  The actual current worldwide war that needs to be recognized is that between those with conscience and those without.  Bear in mind the same sociopathic and psychopathic individuals that have gained control of our media, money and military can infiltrate the most conscionable cause under the most seemingly righteous and believable veneer of pretentions and premises.  Beware of those that lie, and particularly those whose lies and actions hurt others!

What’s Public Broadband?


Something that I’ve taken for granted all my life is the word “public”.  Sure, I’m familiar with public sidewalks, public roads, public libraries, public schools, public hospitals, public utilities and public toilets; but I really never gave much thought to how these resources were made public. 

I now struggle with the socialistic concept that public resources like those above, plus police, firemen, army, navy and airforce, are provided for by government on the behalf of the public.  Consequently, let’s define public more clearly as it is sometimes used incorrectly from a bureaucratic perspective to pull one over on the populace and have government control it like public internet at the expense of the private sector.

As a member of the public and with the current state of chaos in all levels of government in that it is now for the corporations, by the corporations, and really hasn’t reflected the constitution since the creation of the privately held Federal Reserve, I would be more comfortable representing myself as a member of the public and not electing someone to do so on my behalf.  How best to achieve that?

Well, it is the international year of the cooperatives and through cooperative representation I would have a greater say, and ownership, perhaps even dividends, while mitigating control of government over public broadband which still needs to be regulated to protect the public’s interest.

So, when I refer to public broadband I’m not referring to local government I’m referring to broadband belonging to the public, in the public’s interest and I’m advocating managing of such through cooperative endeavors.   Let’s be absolutely clear as well when I also refer to community owned networks I’m not referring to government networks but cooperative networks.

Let me be even more precise from the perspective of incumbents within a community, incorporated or unincorporated it really doesn’t matter.  These incumbents may be the local community service provider privately held.   How best to protect these incumbent interests and foster competition is to establish through a community development cooperative an enterprise, profit or non-profit to suit the community’s needs.  The cooperative would have controlling interest in the enterprise and incumbents and other stakeholders such as institutions, would contribute cash or cash in kind to make up the balance of the enterprise in a fair and equitable manner.  There may even be an exit strategy for incumbents in terms of a buyout based on revenue after a number of years.  Let incumbents beware though of being diluted into oblivion which can be easily thwarted.  Obviously a community development cooperative could have a broader impact on the local economy other than broadband.

Public broadband is owned and operated by the public through a cooperative endeavor, not government endeavor.  On a larger scale like a county or state or region there might be a federation of cooperatives.
