This Richmond councilmember apparently has her head in the clouds.

As City Council faces difficult decisions this year on such issues as the city’s budget deficit and the allocation of new tax dollars, Councilmember Jovanka Beckles wants Richmond to take a step to ensure local residents will be spared from attacks by “exotic,” government-patented weaponry from space.

On the council agenda for Tuesday’s meeting, Beckles, a member of the Richmond Progressive Alliance (RPA), is asking fellow councilmembers to adopt a resolution supporting the Space Preservation Act and the Space Preservation Treaty permanently banning “space-based weapons.”

As explained in the agenda item, three years ago Beckles met Richmond resident Amy Lee Anderson, who claimed to be a survivor of attacks from government-patented technologies and weapons that “interfere and disrupt the targeted individual’s health physically and psychologically by remote transmission.”

Such space-based attacks can come in the form of chemtrails, which conspiracy theorists claim are trails left in the sky by high-flying aircraft that linger and are emitting a chemical or biological agent that attacks unwitting humans. People who believe they’ve been targeted claim to suffer from a host of unexplained symptoms such as memory problems, depression, coughs, nose bleeds, sinus problems and asthma symptoms.

To stop the alleged attacks, Rep. Dennis Kucinich introduced the Space Preservation Act of 2001 to “preserve the cooperative, peaceful uses of space.” Although the legislation did not gain traction in Congress, the City of Berkeley passed a resolution supporting it in 2002.

Beckles wants the City of Richmond to follow in Berkeley’s footsteps, and she’s not the lone voice in Richmond city government supporting Tuesday’s resolution.

Fellow RPA member Marilyn Langlois, a member of Richmond’s planning commission, requested the resolution during open forum at City Council on April 7.

Contra Costa Times columnist Tom Barnidge had fun writing about Langlois’ testimony:

“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,” Barnidge wrote. “She didn’t name a culprit, but obviously it’s the government seeking mind control.”

In his e-forum Sunday, Mayor Tom Butt wrote about the issue with as much sarcasm and implied the resolution may be taking council time away from more important city business. He wrote:

“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.”


  1. It is clear the Richmond Progressive Alliance is running on empty.

  2. It is asshamed that Tom Butt is but a true ass! I am a resident of Richmond and work in Richmond. I see with my own eyes that everyday “they” are spraying out of airplanes a trail of chemicals like a tic tac toe board. I never realized this was happening until I read an article that brought it to my attention to LOOK UP! Wow those are not clouds. They look all slick and feathery and were a straight line of smoke and now spread over the sky. The sad part is that no body looks up. I have pics of these great smoke slicks over my house. I have pics of planes flying over Costco and the Post Office that are amazing. As far as weapons? I wouldn’t put it past our government. Unfortunately it is world wide. I am not a conspiracy theorist, political (don’t even vote) or a Berkeley Weirdo. Just an average person with a average education and a very average job. Do soil tests. One from under your house and one from your yard. The science doesn’t lie. I am all for the courage of the Board Member to stand up to protect her and the people of the City of Richmond’s right to clean air and the Space Preservation Act. WAKE UP WORLD.. LOOK UP.

  3. I believe this falls under the ‘strange but true’ category. I’ve been a target of organized stalking (aka gang stalking, community-based harassment) since August 2014. I read in a former FBI agent’s sworn testimony that gang stalking is a covert FBI program, similar to Cointelpro (1956-1971).

    In the first Cointelpro, the government illegal surveilled folks – many of whom were civil rights activists, anti-war protesters, etc.) In this resurrected Cointelpro, the targets tend to be whistle blowers, activists, minorities and women, etc. Tactics are similar but more sophisticated (stalking, harassing, surveillance). So that’s the link between organized stalking and the government.

    The next connection is the idea of testing weapons in what is often called ‘no touch torture.’ (In a similar vein, those gang stalked call it a ‘prison without walls’). Everything these days seem to be ‘no touch.’ I had my temperature taken last week by something the nurse put in front of my forehead! We’re seeing robots work with bombs, cars parallel park themselves, etc. I think ‘no touch torture’ and unseen weaponry is the future of warfare and the government is experimenting on innocent citizens, like it has in the past (Tuskegee study, radiation, MK Ultra, Cointelpro, etc.).

    I can only speak of gang stalking but from the other targeted individuals I have met, the progression of this will turn to exotic weaponry. I hope it will not, but I fear it may.

    Also, for the non-believers, the government has a lot of patents on these weapons already. And, the CIA has been experimenting with mind control since the 1960s. It’s just a matter of time before these weapons become mainstream for population control and warfare.

    We have the opportunity in our life time to make sure this does not happen. Bravo to the Council for their forward-thinking and compassionate mindset.
