The Federal Communications Commission is supposed to protect Americans by regulating the telecom industry. They have been doing the exact opposite for decades. Current FCC Chair Ajit Pai, refers to this as being “not heavy handed.” Unfortunately, this approach has put Americans in more danger than ever with 5G deployment on land and in space (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6).
Lawsuits have been filed against the agency for NOT protecting Americans from unsafe levels of radiation and 5G (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5). American opposition is not limited to biological and environmental risks (see 1, 2) from radiation. Federal agencies and other experts have warned that 5G can threaten national security, public safety, and weather forecasting accuracy (see 1, 2, 3) The FCC doesn’t seem to give a poop about that either. At least Trump seems to be finally paying attention.
From The Verge:
President Trump has withdrawn the nomination of FCC Commissioner Michael O’Rielly, a six-year FCC veteran who was expected by many to be renewed for a third term, as first reported by Reuters. The withdrawal comes less than a week after Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) placed a hold on the nomination over concerns about O’Rielly’s position on a recently approved terrestrial 5G network.
The conflict centers over a controversial 5G network recently approved by the commission. The proposed network would operate on the L-band spectrum traditionally utilized by radar and GPS, operated by Ligado Networks as a low-power terrestrial system. In its proposal, Ligado pledged to report its base stations and operating parameters to avoid any interference with existing L-band users, but critics of the order have remained concerned that the network may interfere with GPS systems.
Sen. Inhofe is one of those critics, saying, “This isn’t just about our military, but all users of GPS are united in opposition.” As a result, Inhofe sought to block O’Rielly’s nomination “until he publicly states that he will vote to overturn the current Ligado Order.”

The FCC is part of “The Swamp” that Trump promised to drain.
In 2019, telecom executives gave congressional testimony that they have NO scientific evidence that 5G is safe. Congressional members have formally addressed the FCC about 5G concerns. Municipal governments have filed lawsuits against the agency because of 5G. State representatives in Hawaii introduced a bill to ban 5G until studies show that it’s safe. Municipalities have passed resolutions to ban it until studies prove it’s safe (see 1, 2, 3, 4. 5) and have passed ordinances to limit and/or control installation. Cities AND entire countries have taken action to ban, delay, halt, and limit 5G installation AS WELL AS issue moratoriums (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7). The majority of scientists worldwide are opposed to deployment until studies show that it’s safe.
Keep on draining, Trump.
