“During this “public hearing” various corporate operatives of Seattle City Light were given over an hour to speak, sitting on the elevated dais with the council energy committee.   This was completely in accord with the fact that Seattle City Council members absent from council meetings are often so because they are too busy literally meeting in back rooms with corporate operatives. “

Today, May 28, 2014, a goodly number of concerned Seattle area residents attended a long-awaited “public hearing” on “smart” utility meters before the Energy Committee of the Seattle City Council on May 28, 2014. This was after months of our attending “community meetings” hosted by Seattle City Light (SCL) during the latter half of 2013.

These “community meetings” were virtually unpublicized by the City of Seattle, Seattle City Light, and all Seattle media, both mainstream and so-called alternative, as was this public meeting today. This is despite the fact that both the City of Seattle and Seattle City Light both have access to websites, periodic bulletins, big mailing lists and monthly electric bill mailing inserts by which such important civic events might be publicized, as do all major Seattle media.

1780830_681342798571094_19815133_nThese Seattle City Light “community meetings” were military contractor-developed manipulations of group process — Delphi meetings — featuring one-way SCL propaganda and SCL employees pretending to listen to those of us providing documented evidence about our many legitimate unaddressed concerns about “smart” utility meters conveniently off the public record.

This was so that SCL and the Seattle City Council could say that they had gotten “community input” before unlawfully and fraudulently imposing these dangerous NSA-type surveillance devices on the people of Seattle in their homes, workplaces and meeting places, as they so obviously intend to do by 2016. This is indicated by the fact that the final vote on Seattle City Light’s planned “smart” utility meter roll-out being included the City of Seattle’s Strategic Plan will be on Monday, June 23, 2014 at 9:30 AM, with only two such unpublicized, truncated, fraudulent public hearings being held – the one today and the one that day.

Today’s so-called public hearing was deliberately held, as most Seattle City Council meetings are, on a weekday during business hours when most working people cannot attend. During this “public hearing” various corporate operatives of Seattle City Light were given over an hour to speak, sitting on the elevated dais with the council energy committee. This was completely in accord with the fact that Seattle City Council members absent from council meetings are often so because they are too busy literally meeting in back rooms with corporate operatives.

We the people, by contrast, were relegated to sitting below these august personages behind a barrier, and all of us given exactly two ten-minute segments total to speak to the very urgent, multifaceted issues around “smart” utility meters before and after this corporate propaganda presentation that did not seem very much concerned with any possible well-documented downside to these dangerous NSA-type surveillance devices.

Most of us present were thereby denied by recent Seattle City Council statutory regulation our first amendment rights peaceably to assemble and address our supposed elected electives with evidence placed on the public record. Moreover, some of us first there were told by the committee chairperson’s aide that if we put our names at the top of a second sign-in sheet to speak during public comment, that we would be the first to speak during the second ten-minute segment.

That time never came; at the beginning of the second ten-minute segment, the committee chairperson ordered those whose names were on the first sheet later arrived to keep speaking, thereby eliminating some who were actually there first. So, not only was this meeting conducted in an unconstitutional manner, but in one that was arbitrary, rude and extremely unfair as well.

Today’s manifestation of de facto corporate dictatorship at Seattle City Hall might possibly be explained by the following facts:

o The City of Seattle is a private for-profit subsidiary of the private, for-profit State of Washington and US Government corporations. Their corporate Dunn & Bradstreet corporate code numbers are, respectively 009483561-City of Seattle, 079248936-Washington State and 052714196-US Government. This can be verified by cross-reference on the Dunn & Bradstreet.com and Manta.com business websites;

o These private, for-profit corporations masquerading as governments are controlled by the private, for-profit Federal Reserve central banking system that is in turn controlled by the global banking cartel of the 1%. This corporate takeover of our nation was engendered by the secret fraudulent bankruptcy imposed on our nation by this banking cartel in 1933. This can be abundantly documented by a web search for the terms “Federal Reserve” and “Secret US bankruptcy of 1933”;

o The private, for-profit City of Seattle corporation, likely has, through its participation in the Washington State government investment pool, significant listed investments in the three of the largest smart utility meter manufacturers in the world, General Electric, Exelon and Itron.

When the 2013 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) of the Washington State Investment Board is consulted as to the actual current amounts of these corporate government Wall Street investments in smart utility meter manufacturers, it is evident that all of the Washington State government CAFRs available online have recently been altered to reflect its largely irrelevant percentage of ownership in these corporations through its investments, rather than the very telling exact amounts of the people’s money that it has so invested.

Here is primary source evidence that the state’s online financial documents have been altered: a page from the online 2011 Washington State CAFR printed off in 2012 compared with one from the same 2011 CAFR printed off today. It is evident that the current online 2011 state CAFR has been altered to reflect only the percentage of Washington state government ownership of these corporations, rather than the exact amount of our money the state has placed in such corporate Wall Street investments.

This can be verified by review of the Washington State Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports 2006-2013 at www.wsib.gov;

o This is obviously so that the considerable amounts which the Washington State corporate government is investing in these and other objectionable predatory corporations – such as its listed investments in Goldman Sachs, Transamerica and Monsanto – will not be so readily available to the vigilant public. It is also very telling that this has occurred after one member of the vigilant public in 2012 filed relatively well-publicized criminal charges against the Washington State government and its enabling media corporations for ongoing financial fraud and treason – such financial fraud and treason as the Seattle municipal corporation wanting to maximize its possible energy sector investments at the expense of the welfare of the people of Seattle might reveal. These criminal charges against the Washington State corporate government and media can be found at NowIstheTime.us, as well as many other websites online.

o This, on top of the approximately $15 million in joint federal funding that the private, for-profit Seattle municipal corporation has obtained for its smart utility meter installation program from the private, for-profit US Departments of Energy and Homeland Security corporations, shows that the only things green about this private, for-profit municipal corporation’s planned unlawful imposition of these dangerous NSA-type surveillance devices on the people of Seattle are these: the color of money spuriously obtained under color of law, and the green mask being worn by a well-disguised, eco-politically correct campaign for even more planetary control by the globalist 1%.
