5G From Space

In November of 2018, the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC) authorised the rocket company SpaceX, owned by the entrepreneur Elon Musk, to launch a fleet of 7,518 satellites to complete SpaceX’s ambitious scheme to provide global satellite broadband services to every corner of the Earth.

The satellites will operate at a height of approximately 210 miles, and irradiate the Earth with extremely high frequencies between 37.5 GHz and 42 GHz. This fleet will be in addition to a smaller SpaceX fleet of 4,425 satellites, already authorised earlier in the year by the FCC, which will orbit the Earth at a height of approximately 750 miles and is set to bathe us in frequencies between 12 GHz and 30 GHz. The grand total of SpaceX satellites is thus projected to reach just under 12,000.

There are at present approximately two thousand fully functioning satellites orbiting the Earth. Some beam down commercial GPS (or “SatNav”), some provide TV, some provide mobile phone services, and some bounce radar back and forth to produce images for meteorologists and military surveillance. The Earth is thus already comprehensively irradiated from outer space.

But the new SpaceX fleets will constitute a massive increase in the number of satellites in the skies above us, and a correspondingly massive increase in the radiation reaching the Earth from them. The SpaceX satellite fleet is, however, just one of several that are due to be launched in the next few years, all serving the same purpose of providing global broadband services. Other companies, including Boeing, One Web and Spire Global are each launching their own smaller fleets, bringing the total number of projected new broadband satellites to around 20,000 – every one of them dedicated to irradiating the Earth at similar frequencies (fig. 1). 1

… what is really driving it is the creation of the conditions within which electronic or “artificial” intelligence will be able to assume an ever greater presence in our lives.

Why is there this sudden flurry of activity? The new satellite fleets are contributing to a concerted global effort to “upgrade” the electromagnetic environment of the Earth. The upgrade is commonly referred to as 5G,

Trump’s Big Picture | New Eastern Outlook

Aside from North Korea, and his trade war’s impact on jobs, the average American doesn’t care if Donald Trump loses his European allies over demands that they cease all business with Iran. During the recent school graduation season, former oil man Rex Tillerson, Trump’s short-lived Secretary of State, and his successor, Mike Pompeo, gave speeches that illustrate the fracture in America’s attitude toward the world at large.

At the graduation ceremony of the Virginia Military Institute, Tillerson said: “If our leaders seek to conceal the truth, or we as people become accepting of alternative realities that are no longer grounded in facts, then we as American citizens are on a pathway to relinquishing our freedom.” He added that citizens “must demand that America’s future be “fact-based, not based on wishful thinking, not hoped-for outcomes made in shallow promises, but with a clear-eyed view of the facts as they are and guided by the truth that will set us free to seek solutions to our most daunting challenges.”

Meanwhile, Mike Pompeo, the new Secretary of State, who formerly headed the CIA, promised America’s diplomatic back office, whose ranks had been decimated under Tillerson, that he would “bring the State Department’s swagger back.” He defined this as an “aggressiveness born of the righteous knowledge that our cause is just, special and built upon America’s core principles,” adding that: “We should carry that diplomatic swagger to the ends of the Earth, humbly, nobly and with the skill and courage I know you all possess.”

President Trump’s other appointees, including federal judges and the cabinet secretaries who head the US government’s various ‘Departments’ (the equivalent of ‘Ministries’), are all hard-line conservatives, who can be counted upon to pursue the agenda brazenly announced by Alt-right former advisor, Steve Bannon, to dismantle the State (‘in pure Leninist tradition’). If this sounds strange, Bannon is just back from Italy where he encouraged and learned from the populist coalition that just came to power, claiming it had overcome the left-right divide in order to fight immigration. Verifying this dubious claim in the Corriere della Sera, Italy’s ‘daily of record’, it turns out that unlike its governing partner, the League, the Five Star Movement, particularly admired by Bannon, published a comprehensive program for the integration of African refugees.
