US TO MOVE SPACE ASSETS INTO DEEP SPACE, AND A STRANGE GOLDMAN SACHS COMMERCIAL

US TO MOVE SPACE ASSETS INTO DEEP SPACE, AND A STRANGE GOLDMAN SACHS ...

Yesterday I blogged about the continuing emergence of details about the recent visit of President Obama to a summit meeting with the newly elected President Macri of Argentina in San Carlos di Bariloche, a location that hardly needs any introduction to readers of my books, and particularly of The Nazi International. In yesterday's blog, you'll recall, I referenced a strange article that connected some very unlikely dots, namely: (1) the secret Chinese space base in that region of Argentina, (2) the Falklands Islands and a recent UN report that lists the Falklands as falling within Argentina's territorial waters (3) President Obama's summit meeting with Senor Macri, and the fact that a virtual battalion of NASA people was part of Mr. Obama's entourage, (4) the speculations that the Falklands played some sort of role in American plans for the region, and finally, (5) that all of this was somehow related to Moon mining and secrets and secret activity in Antarctica.

Well, today put all that into yet another context, as the steady trickle of space-related news stories seems to get more and more bizarre on an almost daily basis. Consider this article, shared by Mr. T.M., and(in what is an unusual procedure for us on this website) this video "commercial" by a Goldman Sachs analyst about space:

US to move more assets into deep space over next 4 years

You'll note that in the article, there's very little explanation of why the US is moving its space assets into higher and deeper orbits, but a clue is provided by the fact that reference is made to the privatization of LOE(Low Earth Orbit) launches of commercial satellites. Thus, the "assets" being referred to are military. The question is, why move them further out? The answer, in part, is provided by growing American concerns about Chinese anti-satellite capability, for recall just a few years ago that the Chinese demonstarted their capability to knock out a satellite in low earth orbit with ground launched anti-satellite missiles.

But I suggest there's another context from which this should be viewed, and that is the context suggested yesterday: Moon mining, and the looming Chinese-US competitution to mine the moon for Helium-3, a valuable isotope for fusion power, which in turn, as we've also seen, has been a growing presence in recent stories, with all the implications for a radical change in the world's energy systems, and hence, for a radical change in the world's financial system. At two minutes and ten seconds into the Goldman "New Frontier" video, the militarization of space and the challenges from nations "not our allies" is mentioned.

So what's going on? My high octane speculation for today reiterates something I've suggested in many previous blogs: with the commmercialization of space comes the inevitable necessity of protecting those national assets, but with the mining of space and local celestial bodies like the Moon, comes the necessity of protecting those assets, and the "sea lanes" to them. And that requires not only the need to re-position American assets currently available further out, it also requires new military-space assets to be positioned further out. One can even go so far as to envision "seleno-synchronous" orbits for satellites around the Moon, and occupying various layered orbits between the Earth and the Moon.  If this reading of these stories be correct, then this means the USA and China - and therefore inevitably Japan, india, Europe, and Russia - are about to embark on a massive increase in space-related activity, both military and commercial. This possibility in turn puts all those recent announcements about fusion power, and even the Saudi announcements and Rockefeller announcements about transitioning their national and foundational investments away from petroleum into a very interesting context. And of course, lurking in the background of all of this, is that these looming investments have to be protected, not only from potential interdiction from terrestrial competitors, but perhaps also from "someone else."

See you on the flip side...

  1. Is this the first step to privatization of NASA,
    or did I miss that one and this a second step?

    I had been thinking that the CIA would get in
    there somewhere and that THAT had already
    started as a takeover.

    The CIA is probably the largest private organization
    (yes, it is….they don’t answer to any government)
    with the largest world wide population.

    Just sign me Confoosed.

      They say that the CIA was corrupted by the Nazi skin graft on the OSS. But was it the other way around. Hard to distinguish between Rockefeller/Rothschild-like intelligence agencies masquerading as public cash cows and the Sicherheitsdienst.

      1. It’s very difficult to dig through the lies and get through to the truth, both contemporary and historic.

        “Nothing is as it seems and all of history is a lie.” A HAL838 original.

        Thank goodness for those who dare to be different and do the real research, such as Dr. Farrell, and the archaeologists who do the real digging and refuse to hide it.

      Hal838 to quote Fullmetal Alchemist NASA is a dog of the military-industrial-intelligence complex.

      1. There’s nothing ‘intelligent’ about any of this crap or the so called….umm…people that choose the evil.

        It (the {d}evil) is ultimately self destructive. What’s so smart about that?

  2. US Patent Application Publication No. 2002/0066288 A1
    Title Extraction of helium-3 gas from ilmenite ore utilizing radiant solar energy
    Abstract A method and apparatus for the recovery of Helium3 (He-3) from ilmenite ore (iron titanate or FeTiO3),
    including recovery from the surface and near surface of a satellite such as the Moon,
    and extraction using solar energy and the natural rotational cycles of the satellite
    for the purpose of obtaining the He-3 for use in nuclear reactors
    for generation of pollution-free electrical power for commercial or industrial uses,
    as a fuel to propel space vehicles, and for other purposes, such as medical use.

    The question is whether we will have a nation or not. By that I am referring to the specter of Goldman Sachs, setting up the space bubble, as financial fiction, based upon privatized asset grabs, backed by the ability to launch wars, on and off the planet.

    The dark age continues…..

    1. On “the specter of Goldman Sachs, setting up the space bubble, as financial fiction”, there is a historical precedent for that. Various holding companies were set-up in the 19th century for building canals, etc. The issuers/promoters skimmed money off the top, regardless of whether the concern ultimately was profitable or not. If it did go bust, only the stockholders lost their shirts…

  4. Goldman? Gives a whole new dimension to “off shore banking.” Let’s see, Rothschild has established “tax havens ” in US. Goldman now into “off planet” enterprises.”Assets”moved “off planet.” Thy are establishing a new colony that will not be answerable to any government. This is most probably tied in with the TPP and the TTIP with their own “corporate law courts.”

  5. Well reading between the lines is just about a “must” these days, and some high speculation is obligatory. But I think this is the “gate” that opens up the ET issue, and I believe as does Richard Dolan, that they cannot keep this hidden forever. If there is a threat from “out there” then it’s a real threat, and that’s something that has to be “dealt with”. So the drip – feed continues, but they can’t do it forever, and the admittance of an ET presence would shake this planet to it’s very foundations, including the dreaded Vatican.

      1. The Vatican is positioning itself for any eventuality, in other words they have to have a “plan”

        1. Or, to put in other terms, the Vatican has a PLAN, and its henchmen are intent on dragging humanity into a whole new paradigm. The Vatican is extremely serious regarding the inevitable arrival of extraterrestrials on Earth.

  6. I credit both Elon Musk and the Chinese for the ‘moves’ as above. Musk’s SpaceX has broken the restricted-access to low Earth orbit (LEO) based on $/# to orbit. Kudos. Now, the ‘elite’ will have to share Space with the peons. Hence, the withdrawal to more ‘elite’ orbits.

    The Chinese are part of this reaction because of their putting their money where their mouth is. They have funded a legitimate space program with long-term planning and goals, unlike the West. They must be beginning to look like a juggernaut to those ‘occupying’ LEO. Hence, the moves to GEO and beyond.

    It is more than ironic that a ‘nerd’ and a communist (nation) should break the dike on the containment of humans…

    1. BetelgeuseT-1

      IMO, Elon Musk is firmly embedded within the establishment.
      They roll him out in front of the media whenever there is something to be sold to the masses.
      No different than Suckerberg, Brin&Page, Gates, etc and just about every other tech company with their seed money from you-know-who.

      And hey, why not postulate that we’ve been on this drip-feed aver since the industrial revolution?

      1. BetelgeuseT-1, I can see your point. In one way, I agree. With all his ‘disrupting’ of car and space interests, he should have had an ‘accident’ or ‘heart attack’, long ago. So, why not?

        On the other hand, I am an aerospace engineer (in part). I have watched how the PTB have monopolized space for my lifetime. I can list-off a dozen ways where the PTB have made choices that wasted opportunities and kept $/# to orbit as high as they could. In my mind, this was intentional. They WANT mankind looking down, not up…

        Elon Musk has taken extra chances every time he could, always looking two or three steps ahead. The reusable first stages comes to mind. All that was ‘extra’ to his contracts, but he reached-ahead anyway. (The PTB have ignored these chances.) As a result, not only United Launch Alliance (ULA) but also European Space Agency (ESA) have abandoned their current launchers and are scrambling to come up with low(er) cost solutions to match SpaceX’s prices. Revolutionary.

        Musk may be “firmly embedded within the establishment”; but at his heart (the important part), he is a revolutionary, IMHO. I hope he survives…

  7. When I read of “mining the moon”, I laugh. Now if someone were to speak of “salvage reclamation” then I would take notice.

  8. marcos toledo

    Anyone read Citizen Of The Galaxy or watched Outlaw Star anime or read it’s manga. Think the Dutch, British East India Companies in space combined with the Barbary Pirates, Brethren Of The Coast and I use to read that space pirates couldn’t happen and it was a childish fantasy well it happening in front of our faces.

  9. Robert Barricklow

    The military assets are protecting private transnational assets.
    Probably locked out-of-sight in those secret trade agreements[TPP/TTIP].
    All part of the economy mantra: socialize the costs/privatize the profits.
    Look for more autonomous labor being spaced-out.

  10. Well, I have to say it: Helium 3 is a farce and a cover-story to the real reason for any public ‘race’ to the moon. You don’t mine that moon.

    And there ya have it!

  11. Glad someone else sent you that video Joseph. I knew it was important to the discussion!

  12. Anything is on the cards, even tourism, though the “gentleman” in the video didn’t sound too convinced on that point. And these “financiers” will probably find some sucker who will buy “space-based derivatives”. But I don’t think the “others” out there will be so naive…

  13. Goldman Sachs the “NEXT SPACE AGENCY?” …. That’s N.S.A. incase you missed it!
