Last weekend I watched The Current War, which is about the battle between Edison’s desire to maintain and grow his DC power plant system and Tesla’s desire to give the world AC power at about 1/3 the cost.
I first heard of this movie last year and have been eagerly awaiting its release.
The movie was well done as far as the quality of production is concerned, the acting was good but they didn’t quite develop the story well enough to build up the excitement enough with Tesla’s triumph of lighting the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago.
Nevertheless, it is a story that changed the world and is worth watching just for the history lesson. The story is also not ultra technical so even youngster’s can understand the gist of the story. It doesn’t get into Tesla’s more mysterious technologies, but Tesla’s character does mention briefly the transmission of electricity without wires and it was left at that.
Here’s the trailer:

One thing about the movie is that it doesn’t give a lot of context of where Tesla came from and more of his back story but there is a movie that is old enough that it’s free online that does a great job of giving you the larger story. It even has Orson Wells as JP Morgan – The Secret of Nikola Tesla. I’d recommend watching this old movie first and then The Current War second because you’ll have more of a frame of reference about everything referenced.
It’s got a bit of a dated, strange feel to it, but it’s definitely a must see. This version has subtitles, but at least its free. There is another version on YouTube that is a full version that doesn’t have subtitles but the audio and video aren’t perfectly in sync so this one seems to be the best edition.

This is a presentation that Eric Dollard has wanted to deliver for the last couple years. It was inspired by his discovery that on the land where the seismic lines are, there is an enormous amount of electrical transmission interference. Upon further research, Eric discovered that it is caused by the degenerated manner in which the grid is wired, which has deviated from the good practices of the past.
This presentation is 5 hours long so not for the faint of heart!
It is laid out in several sections sequentially starting with the most comprehensive history of electrical utility transmission systems, comparison between AC & DC, the development of the lighting systems, wiring methods, and related topics. It also lays out who the main players are, who got it all started and who inspired the modern electrical age as we have it.
Eric Dollard covers in detail all the different transformer wiring methods including Delta and Y (Wye) Three-Phase and many variations of each. He is very clear about what methods are preferred and what is wrong with the non-preferred methods that are already in widespread use. He covers the distinctions of why power engineers think the poor methods they are using are better, which reveals the fact that they don’t know what they don’t know – this is where the trouble begins.
One of the most important elements of this entire presentation is that EMP (electro magnetic pulse) vulnerabilities from nuclear weapons detonated in the atmosphere or other sources of EMP is a very hot topic. What is even hotter that most people don’t recognize is that as the grid is degenerated (and at a higher cost), not only is the grid vulnerable to the damage, the way the grid has been connected actually turns it into an antenna to broadcast the EMP damage right into YOUR home!
Every appliance plugged into the grid is metallically connected to HOT electrical wiring right at the electrical utility pole. The notion that everything is grounded to protect from this kind of situation is faulty and you will learn why.
Has this been done intentionally or is the sabotage simply unknown to the engineers and was made possible simply by their own ignorance of the matter? Is this sabotage organized top down by those who wish to take down the United States? Whatever the case may be – if you don’t believe in conspiracy theories yet, you probably will.
Intentional or not, this is something that needs to be addressed and is so important that it should be a National Security concern with high priority.
You’ve probably heard of Smart Meters – something else significant from Spokane is that one of the largest manufacturers of Smart Meters is based right here and we’re all to familiar with the local power company wanting to start placing these contraptions on homes while replacing perfectly good analog meters.
Whether you are familiar with the pro and con claims for Smart Meters, it is a good idea to inform yourself and decide whether or not you want to let your power company install one because in most places, it is up to you to refuse them. In any case, here is a free video that will definitely make you think twice: https://takebackyourpower.net/free-viewing/
That free viewing expires December 1st at Midnight Pacific Standard Time.
