There's more space news out folks, courtesy of this story shared by K.M. And it's very intriguing space news at that, because France has announced that it plans to deploy satellites armed with powerful lasers to protect French space-based assets, and this comes shortly after the French President announced the formation of a French space force:

France to launch ‘fearsome’ satellites ‘armed with powerful lasers’ into space

There's more than meets the eye behind these lines:

It sounds like something out of a James Bond adventure, but France is to launch satellites armed with ‘powerful lasers’ into space.

The French Defense Minister Florence Parly said France was not being sucked into an arms race - and insisted the satellites would only be used to defend French space vehicles.

She said that the creation of a new French ‘space command’ announced by the president was central to a strategy to bolster defense capabilities, rather than offensive.

'If we want to be able to carry out real military operations in space, then we need to develop the ability to act alone,' Parly said, speaking at the Lyon-Mont Verdun air base.

'We reserve the right and the means to be able to respond: That could imply the use of powerful lasers deployed from our satellites or from patrolling nano-satellites.'  (Emphasis added)

The rationale here is almost exactly the same as that behind President De Gaulle's decision to develop an independent French thermonuclear and strategic missile capability back in the late 1950s, the so-called force de frappe: France, if it was to remain truly sovereign and independent, and not subject to the dictates of Moscow or, more importantly, Washington, had to have the capability to "act alone" (to quote the current article) and to possess the "right and the means to be able to respond" (to quote the current article once again).  As a result, France, which could not destroy either country "several times over" did develop the capability - which it still has, incidentally - to deal a crushing and perhaps fatal blow to both. It was the Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD) doctrine, French-style.

Something similar is operating here, particularly in the light of Mr. Trump's announcement of an American space force.

But there's something else operating, and it's even more important. Recently Europe completed a build out of its own financial clearing system independently of the American-dominated SWIFT system based (conveniently enough) in Brussels. Russia and China have been putting the final touches on their own system, and the Japanese of course have a clearing system in widespread use in the western Pacific, think of it as their World War Two "Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere," version 2.0. All of these clearing systems are heavily reliant upon space-based communications assets, and they need to be defended. The real question is, defended from whom? The answer, given recent opposition to American unipolarism, is that they need to be defended from American space-based weapons.

So where's the high octane speculation here? So far, there isn't any. These countries are acting in their national interests, and that's to be expected. The real question, in France's case, is whether this capability is to be included in the common European military that Paris and Berlin have signaled they want to create. That remains to be seen, but with the integration a few years ago of large French and German defense contractors (See: German, French defense companies to merge) it could be that this is another step in military integration. If not - and time alone will tell - then one can expect similar moves from the other European powers to  create their own space forces.

Again, there's no high octane speculation here. So what, exactly, is my high octane speculation about all of this development of other systems of international financial clearing, with their inevitably corollary, the development of space forces to protect them? To understand my high octane speculation concerning all of this, one has to ignore the Earth-based geopolitics behind it all, and look at the development whole, and independently of that geopolitics. When one does so, an intriguing picture emerges, for what is being built out is redundancy in international financial clearing, with European, Russo-Chinese, and Japanese systems being added to the American-dominated SWIFT system. Four levels of redundancy. If, for whatever reason, the SWIFT system is taken out, three others remain to step into the void. And building out such redundancy - and the means to protect them  - is exactly what one would do if one were trying to protect those planetary systems from interdiction by "someone else." In other words, what I am suggesting is that terrestrial geopolitical motivations for doing so, while legitimate, might not be the only nor the deepest reason for doing so. I'm reminded of the observation of the late Colonel Philip Corso in his well-known book The Day After Roswell, where he stated that the Mutually Assured Destruction doctrine which lay behind the massive themonuclear weapons stockpiles of the United States and the Soviet Union during the Cold War (not to mention the nuclear stockpiles of the United Kingdom, France, China, and later India and Pakistan)  was as much about deterring that "someone else" as it was about deterring each other. And while we're thinking along these lines, lasers may be adequate for defending satellites or taking others out. But the real question left unanswered in the French announcement is the frequency range of those satellite-based lasers. Might this be a cover for lasers operating in the gamma-ray range of the spectrum, for GRASERS? (Gamma-ray lasers). If so, then we're looking at a defensive capability that could easily become an offensive capability, and a potentially strategic one at that.

If that sounds like science fiction, then recall Reagan's "Star Wars" concept, and the fact that the USA at the time was talking about x-ray lasers, which would have required a nuclear explosion in space to create the x-rays to be cohered into a laser beam. The rumor at the time was that when Dr. Edward Teller phoned the White House after a nuclear underground test, he was phoning to inform Reagan that the concept had worked. The only problem with the idea was, of course, that such weapons were "one shot" affairs. But then an effect - the Mossbauer effect - was discovered that under certain conditions of acoustic stress, certain materials could be made to cohere x-rays and gamma rays into a laser beam... over and over again.

So, yes, I do suspect that behind all the denials that satellite based lasers are purely for defense, that they're not talking about lasers of any ordinary type, and that the real goal is to put weapons in space capable of an offensive and strategic use, zapping asteroids, or whatever (or whoever) else may come wandering into the neighborhood.

The USA and the Russian Federation have already made "space force" announcements, and now France has joined the club. And yes, I'm walking right off the end of the twig of speculation to say that this tends to confirm my view that this may be as much about what may be going on "out there" as it is about what's going on "down here."

See you on the flip side...

    I’ll lay even money that France goes “broke” long before they can put anything in space. You need a hell of a lot of money to get into this space “thing”. And with Macron the “moron” running the ship there are a lot of if’s and but’s going on here, it sounds like a lot of “wind” to me.

  8. Foglamp on August 5, 2019 at 9:18 pm

    Perhaps this is just naive wishful thinking on my part, but I’m wondering whether The Space Fence may be as much about what may be going on “out there” as it is about what’s going on “down here,” too?

  9. Foglamp on August 5, 2019 at 9:13 pm

    To put the French decision in context, it helps to remember that, although France was a founder member of NATO and remains a member today, in 1966 De Gaulle withdrew France from the NATO Integrated Military Command Structures. Understandably, France values highly the ability to act – or at least posture – independently in the French national interest should the need arise. Although France is the USA’s oldest ally, France does not like to think of itself as anyone’s poodle.

  10. marcos toledo on August 5, 2019 at 8:11 pm

  11. OrigensChild on August 5, 2019 at 11:49 am

    All good points. But the thing that shouts out to me are all of the various plausible deniability scenarios for special operations and false-flags for social engineering in a local environment. I know there were two mass shootings this past weekend here stateside with high casualty rates and personal injuries. I mourn for the families involved as my nephew was killed recently in a senseless shooting that has left our family devastated. Unlike my nephew’s death, however, these killings come at a most propitious time for a whole series of social engineering opportunities latent within them, and both of these occurred near communities with military bases. Having seen this signature too many times, with opportunists descending on the scene like dementors pulling energy from the misery of those who are suffering, both events have the “appearance” of contrivance. Whether they were spontaneous events or not, I cannot say. But the appearance of contrivance remains a matter for investigation because of past false-flag events imposed on an unwitting public in recent years. As long as any government is willing to manipulate public opinion by manipulating the trauma and misery of others, it cannot be trusted with the least of problems–let alone the significant ones! Any situation to which any member of any government agency or political organization would seek to exploit to an advantage should be ignored by the general public. The victims of these attacks deserve their time to grieve and heal. With dementors entering the stage to harvest the misery of others for matters such as these, imagine what they could do with a false-flag event staged through the employ of foreign space weapons platforms.

    • goshawks on August 5, 2019 at 6:39 pm

      OG, I am sorry to hear about your nephew’s death. Condolences to all, and RIP.

      On the various shootings around the nation, Jim Stone has been wading-in:
      Apparently, a third shooting was planned by TPTB, and the MSM announced it before it happened ! :
      “In the video, a FOX news announcer for a local station – in the city a third shooting was supposed to happen in on Saturday (at another Wal Mart) – announces the next shooting by accident, before it happened , and she checks her twitter and re-checks, looks a little confused, and then says “that hasn’t happened yet”.

      Also, on the Dayton OH shooting, JS points out:
      “The Ohio shooter died in 2014. And if you search this guy [shows photos and obituary], you can see he’s a match for the Ohio shooting. The back story on this is that his mom owns a security company that contracts with the government, and she used him because she knew he could not be traced. That’s why there are so many different photos of this guy available; his mom had them and used them.”

      So, there are many ‘inconsistencies’ added to what JS mentioned earlier:

      And as you have noted, the ‘dementors’ are flocking to the scene…

          Earlier comment on this aspect:

          Also found this, since then:

          November 9, 2016

          “To Hillary supporters, I also say this: she was intended to win, so you can take solace in that if you like. More than two years ago when they started pretending to run for President, she was the anointed one. They planned to steal the election for her, and up until a few months ago, that was still the plan. … All that went to hell when Hillary got very sick. She may be dying, or not: even now no one can predict things like that. But the fact is, she is simply not well enough to make all the appearances and speeches a President is expected to make. She is not healthy enough to be a bad actor. So they had to change the script at the last minute. Instead of giving it to Hillary, they had to give it to Trump.

          According to the original script, Trump was supposed to just be the foil to Hillary, making her look good. Since that is very difficult, Trump had to play his part over-the-top, which explains all the purposely idiotic things he has said. It was all scripted to ensure a Hillary victory, or to ensure you were relieved when she won, at any rate. But when she got sick and the script had to be rewritten, Trump was the only one left in the race. This has put him in a tight spot, and we will see how he gets out of it. To me, he didn’t look too thrilled to be President-elect. Pence looked far more thrilled last night, so I would say it is possible they will invent some scenario where Trump retires. I don’t know how they would do that without faking his death, but keep your eyes open.

          In recent papers, I have outed both Trump and Hillary as crypto-Jews from the ruling families, telling you they are both just actors. This would also apply to Bernie and the rest. The entire election is staged to keep your eyes off more important things.

          Don’t watch the silly puppets. Go find the trillionaire bankers and their investment groups. What sort of tricks are they up to during these months?”

    I tend to agree with your speculation. Looking at the situation from a systems perspective, my impression was not to create a antagonistic financial networks but create redundancy in each region of influence. At the same time, the global shift to a multi polar world and the desired appearance of cessation of tension with certain regimes signified to me to want to create a united front globally.

    If you were preparing for part of the world to be raised to the ground but you didn’t know which part, I would think it would look very much like what we are seeing.
    It also puts the constant circus we have been exposed to in perspective and could have 2 end results; it prevents people from getting to interested in these very unusual preparations and panic preventing the massive production necessary to survive the onslaught or it provides cover from these activities because we are already infiltrated and need plausible deniability. If one were to focus on the social left/right unrest, one would miss what might appear as high level cooperation but alas, we can no longer make such speculation since the FBI has declared conspiracy theory to be a national threat, I therefor would like to introduce the term conspiracy observations.

    First, France may have been ‘selected’ by EU bureaucrats (really, those who hold their leashes) for the initial emplacement of space-based weapons. This would be done for ‘cover’ reasons. Imagine if Germany announced they were doing the exact same thing. There would be a worldwide uproar, coming from old WWII fears. But France is seen as relatively benign, in that regard. And if France and Germany later ‘merge’ their armed forces into an EU force, well, that would be semi-okay. Long-range planning at its ‘best’…

    Second, any space-based weapons that Earth nations (even SSP forces) could put into place would be laughable to any civilization capable of routine interstellar flight. It would be like the modern American navy taking-on Cortez’ invasion fleet on his way to Mexico. The only casualties on the alien side would be from laughing uncontrollably…

    Given that, I suspect this is just the MIC sucking-up more R&D and production funds. Maintaining their engineering teams and shareholder dividends. (Maybe even an indirect way to justify additional Ariane 6 flights.) Gotta get the bucks/euros wherever and whenever you can…
