The corporate cosmos race questions ownership and control of outer space. Planting governments flags will never be the same for conquest. It will be difficult to call 911 for rescue. The new space force is still an unknown.

 Who Owns Outer Space?  

Space Race Pits SoftBank-Backed
OneWeb Against Musk, Bezos: Q&A

Can It Make Money?

That’s the tricky part — satellites are a big drain on capital and many projects never make any money. Several players are piling in with grand promises to connect the world’s internet users from space, from traditional operators such as Inmarsat Plc and Eutelsat SA to deep-pocketed new contenders including SpaceX, Blue Origin and LeoSat Enterprises. The OneWeb venture aims to prevail by slashing production costs. The first 648 units will cost about $1 million each. “But when you go to the next batch, it goes way below that, because we’ve amortized all the costs of the factory and whatnot,” said Steckel. “We will be able to broaden it and make it more affordable to everybody.”

SpaceX and the Dangers of Corporate Entitlements

Indeed, Elon Musk’s rocket company has an unfortunate history of just this type of action. In 2016, Musk attempted to obtain his own earmark that could have made SpaceX the sole distributor of rockets to launch new satellites in space. In February 2019, SpaceX filed suit against NASA for not awarding it a contract. And just recently, in May, SpaceX sued the federal government over the Air Force’s decision not to grant it funds under the first phase of the LSA program.

In the most recent lawsuit, SpaceX argued that the Air Force’s decision to deem their aerospace portfolio as high risk was “unreasonable,” despite the firm’s ongoing struggle with quality assurance. The company also alleged that the Air Force “wrongly awarded” launch services agreements to SpaceX’s competitors. These allegations are unlikely to hold much legal weight, considering that the SpaceX CEO already admitted the real reason his firm wasn’t chosen. According to Musk himself, SpaceX was not selected for the job was because the company wrote a poor LSA proposal. The Air Force didn’t rob SpaceX of its right to a government contract; the aerospace industry titan just blew its opportunity to obtain one.

The reality of the situation, though, hasn’t stopped government officials like Chairman Smith from trying to appease Musk’s company by funneling it heaps of cash. That’s the true danger of corporate entitlement: companies working to carve out exemptions for themselves within the American political and legal systems.
The corporate space race is hotting up

The corporate space race is heating up: Billionaire CEOs Jeff Bezos of Blue Origin, Richard Branson of Virgin Galactic, and Elon Musk of SpaceX are promising zero-gravity sightseeing by year-end. They may all have the finances, the tech, and the force of will — but which one will emerge as the superpower of space tourism? This WSJ video takes a look at the competitors (watch, runtime: 4:10).

The contestants: Bezos-owned Blue Origin’s six-seater commercial capsule, the New Shepherd, is slated to run its first crewed test flight this year from its take-off point in west Texas. Virgin’s VSS unity spaceship, also a six-seater, was the first to run a successful test last February. The wonder-child SpaceX’s seven-seater Crew Dragon 2, meanwhile, is hoping to see a manned launch in July.

What does the billionaire space race tell us? A few things actually. One: necessity is no longer the mother of invention. Two: it may cost up to a quarter mn USD to secure a seat into space. And three: Bezos vs. Musk is safer for humanity than the US vs. USSR. Or is it?

Why Big Business Is Making a Giant Leap into Space

A partnership of OneWeb Satellites and Airbus will begin launching 900 satellites into low orbit in 2019 to deliver affordable global internet access. Amazon’s Project Kuiper will place 3,236 satellites into orbit with the stated intention of providing “low-latency, high-speed broadband connectivity to unserved and underserved communities around the world,” Amazon said in a statement to GeekWire.

“Data is everything these days,” says Menon. “There are data companies whose business models are about processing the data that comes out of the satellites, and there is this whole set of companies coming up around this idea,” which is one reason he believes that the new space race is here to stay. “This ‘data-driven’ aspect when coupled with the rest of the space-industry ecosystem could make it more robust.” 

WWII another NWO Coordinated War

Any student of the actual motivation for relentless war has a minimum understanding that empires fight for world domination. Sadly, very few are aware that these authoritarian regimes are not simply battling each other for supremacy. The reality is that the ultimate game plan is to establish and consolidate a New World Order AMONG these belligerent factions. The jingoism and imperialism of the British Crown, the Germany Third Reich, the Soviet Siberian Stalinism, the Japanese Imperium, the Maoist Red Chinese; and yes, the hegemony of the 'Pax Amerika', all share in the objective of world dominion. Banksters and corporatists cross all borders and foster a legacy of subjugation that seeks global enslavement that eagerly enables empires.

Disruptions of Elections

A ship of fools setting sail on a collision course can only result in the sinking of the election process. Civil disobedience is a valid tactic to confront abusive power. However, to intentionally disrupt the Free Speech dialogue of a Presidential campaign misses the legitimacy of opposing truth to power. Donald Trump is not a public official and has no civic authority to demonstrate against. Yet, the brainless minions that make up the ranks of twisted lunacy are in the service of a Soros funded and nihilist agitator system, intent upon destroying America.

Politics, religion, sports, government, entertainment, business, armed forces: it doesn’t matter what arena you’re talking about, they are all riddled with the kind of seedy, sleazy, decadent, dodgy, depraved, immoral, corrupt behavior that somehow gets a free pass when it involves the wealthy and powerful elite in America. In this age of partisan politics and […]

Arnon Milchan is less well known for his role in arranging for the procurement and illegal transfer of U.S. technology that enabled the Jewish state to develop its own nuclear arsenal. “Why is this scumbag still making movies in Hollywood? Why isn’t he in jail?” before concluding that the federal government clearly regards spying for […]

I want to put an end to that speculation. The current situation is making it impossible for me to carry out my role as I would […]

It is a known fact that the orchestration of Russiagate, a hoax perpetrated on the American people and the world by the military/security complex, Democratic Party, and US presstitutes, required high officials of the CIA, FBI, and Obama Department of Justice (sic) to commit felonies.  We know what the felonies are and who committed them.  The plot […]

The well-publicized arrest of left wing, billionaire, child rapist and child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein(cough cough) has caused the ears of we who have followed the recently silent Internet poster Q-Anon for the past 19 months to perk up with renewed interest and hope. Before anyone in normie America had ever even heard of Mr. Epstein, Q had revealed, […]


GOV. ANDREW CUOMO SIGNED A LAW MONDAY AUTHORIZING THE RELEASE of state tax returns to a handful of congressional committees, opening a new avenue for Democrats to get their hands on some of President Donald Trump’s closely guarded finances. “Tax secrecy is paramount — the exception being for bonafide investigative and law enforcement purposes," Cuomo said in a release.

The law allows the state Department of Taxation and Finance to share returns of top federal, state or local government officials — though not private citizens — with three congressional committees that have jurisdiction over tax matters at the request of their respective chair. The House Ways and Means Committee, the Senate Finance Committee, and the Joint Committee on Taxation can make requests for New York state tax returns.

...“This is more Presidential harassment," Jay Sekulow, counsel to the president, said in an email. "We will respond to this as appropriate.” 

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has issued a surprisingly scathing attack on the cadre of progressive freshmen women who have established high profiles among the chamber’s Democrats, dismissing them as having a “public whatever” but lacking significant political backing.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) shot back on Twitter, saying that the “public whatever is called public sentiment.” She added: “Wielding the power to shift it is how we actually achieve meaningful change in this country.”


Epstein Indictment Contains Nothing About Trump, Despite Media Hype
The indictment against sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein contains absolutely zero information about Donald Trump, despite some media reports hyping a connection.

There is no mention whatsoever of Trump in the indictment against Epstein which was released earlier today.

“The Epstein indictment charges the minimal amount of conduct. No mention of the trips powerful people took to his private island,” tweeted Mike Cernovich.

“This indictment seems like the bare minimum that the Feds had to do in light of other records from civil case to be unsealed,” he added, noting that the indictment “doesn’t have anything to say about Trump, despite irresponsible media speculation”.

Jeff Epstein Arrested due to Mike Cernovich Court Win

Intervenors‐Appellants Alan Dershowitz, Michael Cernovich, and the Miami Herald Company (with reporter Julie Brown) appeal from certain orders of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York (Robert W. Sweet, Judge) denying their respective motions to unseal filings in a defamation suit. We conclude that the District Court failed to conduct the requisite particularized review when ordering the sealing of the materials at issue. At the same time, we recognize the potential damage to privacy and reputation that may accompany public disclosure of hard‐fought, sensitive litigation. We therefore clarify the legal tools that district courts should use in safeguarding the integrity of their dockets. Accordingly, we VACATE the District Court’s orders entered on November 2, 2016, May 3, 2017, and August 27, 2018, ORDER the unsealing of the summary judgment record as described further herein, and REMAND the cause to the District Court for particularized review of the remaining sealed materials.

President Trump assailed Britain’s ambassador to Washington for the third successive day, calling him “very stupid” and “wacky,” an attack that will present an early challenge for Britain’s next prime minister in managing relations with the country’s most important ally.
