By Danielle Goodrich [Tennessee Stands / Tri-Cities Coalition] –

HB2063 / SB2691 which looks to ban geoengineering and forms of weather modification like (SRM) solar radiation modification, passed the House floor on April 1st despite attempts from the media and Democrats to thwart the effort. 

The legacy media first attacked the legislation as conspiracy theory, then as growing evidence was presented and became difficult to refute, they seemed to have pivoted to a different approach, now claiming that some forms of geo-engineering are useful.

That is quite the pivot. From saying something doesn’t exist, to saying it might be helpful. 

The Tennessean a left-leaning news outlet ran an article titled, “Tennessee Senate passes bill based on ‘chemtrails’ conspiracy theory: What to know”

The article states, “The bill claims it is “documented the federal government or other entities acting on the federal government’s behalf or at the federal government’s request may conduct geoengineering experiments by intentionally dispersing chemicals into the atmosphere, and those activities may occur within the State of Tennessee,” according to the bill.

However, the federal documents do exist and they were presented in the multiple General Assembly hearings on this legislation, had The Tennessean done actual reporting and covered the hearing they couldn’t pretend the documents didn’t exist any more than they could claim that geoengineering doesn’t exist. 

The White House document titled Congressionally Mandated Research Plan and Initial Research Governance Framework Related to Solar Radiation Modification was pointed to as the cause of a sense of urgency to enter legislation establishing a governance framework for geoengineering and forms of weather modification like SRM (solar radiation modification), SAI (stratospheric aerosol injection) and other aerosol injection practices in Tennessee as well as in seven other states.

Neighboring state Kentucky introduced HB506, and SB217. Rhode Island introduced The Clean Air Preservation Act. New Hampshire entered The Clean Atmosphere Preservation Act. Illinois entered a Weather Modification Act. South Dakota entered its own legislation. Minnesota introduced SF 4630 and HF4687 and Connecticut entered SB302.

Representative Monty Fritts (R-D32-Kingston) carried the legislation in the House and Senator Steve Southerland (R-D9-Morristown) carried it in the Senate.

A similar denial of the evidence happened during the hearings with Justin Jones (D-D52-Nashville) in the first hearing saying that he had looked into it and thought it was conspiracy theory.

Representative Monty Fritts countered telling Jones that had he read the White House documents given to the committee, he would know it is true.

Jeff Childers’ Coffee & Covid newsletter critiqued The Tennessean article stating, “The goofy Tennessean article first claimed that “contrails” were just a conspiracy theory. Then it linked to a ‘fact check’ concluding that “contrails” exist but aren’t used for climate change control. Then it said, even if they are used for climate control, nobody is doing it yet.”

Childers goes on to point out “Again, the actual bill says nothing about contrails.”

He then goes on to compare what The Tennessee Conservative had to say about the legislation, “On the other hand, the much more detailed Tennessee Conservative article cited countless state, federal, and international sources saying exactly what the bill does attempt to ban: spraying stuff in the air to block the sun, which has to be the stupidest idea anyone ever came up with…”

Childers proceeds to make a great point, “The most amusing thing about the Tennessee bill is how well it boxes in and shuts up corporate media carpers. After all, if nobody is spraying chemicals into the atmosphere, then the Tennessee bill can’t hurt anything. It would be like banning flying carpets. Who cares? In other words, to complain about conservatives destroying the climate by banning geoengineering, they first must admit that geoengineering is real. Haha! That they cannot do. This raises some interesting possibilities. It could be a whole new strategy for conservatives: Banning things that democrats claim don’t exist. Like, let’s criminalize use of any drug that enters the cell’s nucleus or integrates into cell DNA. Or make it a felony for government public health officials to misinform the public. Make abortion after birth murder again. What other things can you think of that democrats don’t believe in that it would be good for conservatives to ban?”

Two witnesses testified at the House hearing on March 27th. One in support of the legislation and one against the legislation.

Dr. Denise Sibley, testified in support of the legislation entering the White House document and also Tennessee Code which mentions “weather modification.” “Tenn. Code Ann. § 58-2-116 58-2-116 as supporting documents.  

In addition to weather modification existing in Tennessee state code, and mandated in a Congressional Report, a business owner from El Segundo, CA, Augustus Doricko, who owns a weather modification company called Rainmaker came to testify against the bill, further validating that weather modification, geoengineering and solar radiation modification are in fact real.

Despite the overwhelming evidence, Justin Jones still clung to his belief that this was conspiracy theory, and attempted to redirect the conversation to climate change.

Representative Fritts replied, “because you obviously were not listening to the witness and have not read the document, it is not a secret, it is written in the White House document… that interrupts the premise of your question, but to answer your question about climate change, I think that we have developed industry to control power and to make money over scaring folks like you to death.”

In response to the irrefutable evidence, some Democrats started to pivot from saying it doesn’t exist to maybe it is good for climate change. 

Doricko tried to claim that cloud-seeding is “safe and effective.” And that it isn’t like Solar Radiation Modification (SRM) which blocks out the Sun. 

An article in Revolver News tried to take this approach. The article argues that solar radiation modification and blocking out the Sun is bad geoengineering, whereas cloud-seeding is good geo-engineering.

Again, it is an interesting pivot that happened in the last few weeks. From it isn’t happening, to well it’s happening, but it’s not that bad. 

The article tries to argue that because some conspiracies have been proven true that now the right thinks all conspiracies are true and then argues that not all conspiracy theories that are proven true are bad. 

In the desperate attempt to control this narrative the legacy media is starting to read like satire. 

The satire continued on the House floor where Representative John Ray Clemmons (D-Nashville) introduced an amendment comparing the legislation to Bigfoot with Bigfoot in the amendment. Pearson and Jones(⅔ of the Tennessee Three) kept the Bigfoot mockery going.

Clemmons withdrew his sarcastic amendment but was still asked to read it allowing the mockery to continue wasting taxpayer money for them to finish their pre-planned, childish skit.

Jones who sat through the testimony of a business owner who operates a weather modification business, and two hearings pointing to the federal documents and funding must have had a case of amnesia as he chimed in reinstituting his jaded and disproven claims. 

Representative Monty Fritts for a third time had to counter the assertions with facts, pointing again to the White House documents and to other supporting proof like weather modification funding found in Tennessee Congressman Fleischmann’s report which mentions forms of geoengineering on page 119. It reads, “The recommendation provides not less than $39,000,000 to improve the understanding of key cloud, aerosol, precipitation, and radiation processes.”

I commented in the first article, “The heavy-handed government approach to the supposed “climate crisis” is just like the heavy-handed approach in COVID. The government lifted a moratorium on experimenting on viruses, told us there would be a pandemic, a virus was released, we were blamed for breathing, and our rights were infringed upon. Now we have the government experimenting on weather, telling us we will have severe weather, as they block out the sun, blame us for breathing and look to infringe on our rights again. They do not have the consent of Tennesseans to experiment on us.”

This is where the business owner, the Federal government and the Democrats are missing the point. This is an issue of consent, and Tennesseans have not agreed to the experiment laid out in the federal documents.

In Tennessee, there seems to be a message being sent with legislation, as food that contains vaccines must be labeled as a drug and legislation passes to ban geo-engineering. Tennesseans do not want their food or their skies or their bodies geo or bio-engineered. 

There is also a message being sent to the Federal government that Tennesseans understand their rights and the Constitution. 

As Dr. Denise Sibley pointed out, Article 1 Section 8, gave the Federal government authority over 18 things, known as the 18 enumerated powers. If it is not one of the 18 powers then it defers to the 9th and 10th, the people and the states to decide. Weather modification was not a delegated authority, therefore it is a state’s right to claim governance, which is what Tennessee is doing by passing this legislation.

However, this is a first step. Next legislative session we would like to see an enforcement mechanism added. Senator Frank Niceley mentioned the need for an enforcement mechanism in one of the Senate hearings however the concern was it would add a fiscal note and most legislation carrying a fiscal note this session was placed behind the budget, killing a lot of good legislation. 

Do not be discouraged if the effect is not immediate and an enforcement mechanism is a necessary next step, be encouraged that your concerns have been realized and validated, and we now have legislators acknowledging this issue and taking steps to address it. We need to continue to apply pressure until this issue is fully addressed.

Please thank the bill sponsors, it took a lot of gumption to carry this legislation.

Representative Monty Fritts is a freshman and a lot of freshman would steer away from controversial legislation but he impressed in his ability to present and defend legislation expertly, despite the Democrats attempts to discredit him.

Please thank Senator Southerland and say a prayer for him, right before this legislation was heard in the House, Senator Southerland had a medical emergency.

    Thank you so much for telling the truth about all of this. The Democrats in the big cities of Tennessee are purposely trying to ruin the state just like the crazy liberals did in California. My husband and I left there two years ago (after 55 & 52 years respectively) in the hopes of finding sanity. All conservatives in the state of Tennessee must get out and vote. No longer is complacency going to be accepted. Because if you don’t, Tennessee will fall into the hands of the leftists. Strong pushback is necessary right now.

      Yes. And we need to turn Nashville Red. To many seats are unopposed or vacant on the ballot.

    Justina Jones is another (D)idn’t (E)arn (I)t demonrat.

    Thank you for another great article to reveal truth. The Tennessee Conservative is my go to source. Two weeks ago when we passed the Sparta Airport exit, the clouds we saw in the sky had to be some type of chemical that was released from an airplane. All three of us in our vehicle had terrible burning in our throats and noses. Some is definitely happening to our atmosphere. I pray this stops before it causes sickness to many.
