Japan Aims to Put Man on the Moon, Collaborate With US

July 2, 2020                              (wionews.com)
• The Japanese government announced the country’s 10-year ‘Basic Plan on Space Policy’. Japan aims to double its space industry budget from $11 billion to $22 billion by the early 2030s, and work with the United States to track missiles and use intelligence-gathering satellites during natural disasters.

• One of the key components of the plan is to put a Japanese man on the Moon by 2024, while working with NASA. Japan plans to utilize its resources to strengthen its space policy through the ‘whole-of-government’ approach, while promoting public-private collaborations.

• Japan recently inaugurated the first ‘Space Operations Squadron’ at Fuchu Air Base in Tokyo as an “Air Self-Defense Force”, which will become fully operational by 2023. The squadron will work with the US Space Command to protect the country’s satellites from damage, including armed attacks according to the ‘Basic Space Law’.

• Japan already operates the ‘Quasi-Zenith Satellite System’ to enhance the US’s Global Positioning System in the Asia-Oceania regions. Japan plans to launch a new GPS navigation system of its own in 2023 with 7 satellites. It is concerned over China’s capability to jam or attack satellites with other neighboring countries North Korea and Russia capable of upsetting the regional balance in arms technology.

• In January 2019, China became the first nation to land a rover on the dark side of the lunar surface. This month, China plans to launch a mission to remote-controlled robot on the surface of Mars. The US has already sent four exploratory vehicles to Mars, and intends to launch a fifth this summer which should arrive around February 2021.

• China recently completed its own GPS-type geolocation system which it began in the early 1990s. 120 countries including Pakistan and Thailand are using the Chinese GPS system for port traffic monitoring, to guide rescue operations during disasters and other services, according to Chinese state media.

• When Donald Trump announced the creation of the new Space Force in December, Russia accused the US of seeing space as a place to wage war. In return, the US accused China and Russia of developing tools for jamming and cyberattacks that directly threaten US satellites.

• The Pentagon has stressed that it intends to maintain superiority in space to protect its GPS satellites. In the midst of an escalating space war, the US and Japan have strengthened their “space relations” to build their joint space network and strengthen their satellite force over the next 10 years.

 

Amid the coronavirus pandemic, the Japanese government for the first time in five years updated its Basic Plan on Space Policy while outlining the country’s 10-year basic space policy. It will work with the United States to not only track missiles but use intelligence-gathering satellites during natural disasters.

Japan aims to double its space industry by the early 2030s, which currently stands at $11 billion.

One of the key components of the plan is to put a Japanese man on the Moon by 2024 while working with NASA scientists.

Experts say Japan’s space policy is being led as a reaction to China’s 2013 Jade Rabbit lunar rover mission.

Public-private collaboration

“The Government of Japan, recognizing such huge potential of outer space and the severe situation that it is facing, hereby decides a basic plan on space policy for coming ten years with the view of the next two decades, and will secure sufficient budgetary allotments and other necessary resources, and effectively and efficiently utilize these resources to strengthen its space policy through the whole-of-government- approach, while promoting public-private collaborations,” the Japanse government said in a statement.

Air Self-Defense Force

Japan recently inaugurated the first Space Operations Squadron in Tokyo at Fuchu Air Base as an “Air Self-Defense Force” which will become fully operational by 2023.

It is meant to protect the country’s satellite from damage, including armed attacks while working with the US Space Command.

New Pentagon Strategy to Defend U.S. Dominance in Space

Article by Sandra Erwin                             June 17, 2020                          (spacenews.com)

• On June 17th at a Pentagon news conference, the DoD’s unveiled a ten-year Defense Space Strategy to replace an Obama-era 2011 space strategy based upon the Trump administration’s 2018 national defense strategy that calls for the U.S. military to prepare to compete with rising military powers such as China and Russia.

• China and Russia have developed capabilities to challenge U.S. access to space and “present the most immediate and serious threats to U.S. space operations.” “Both countries consider space access and denial as critical components of their national and military strategies.” Threats from North Korea and Iran are also growing, the document states.

• “DoD has to confront the new reality that adversaries have more advanced weapons designed to target U.S. military satellites and deny the United States a key military advantage,” according to the new strategy paper. “Now we have to defend U.S. and allies to secure the domain.” The DoD will work with allies and with the private sector to ensure space superiority.

• Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Space Policy Steve Kitay said that the DoD has taken significant actions to stay ahead of other powers, such as the establishment of a) the U.S. Space Force as a new military service; b) the U.S. Space Command as a unified combatant command; and c) the Space Development Agency to help accelerate the acquisition of new technologies. The DoD recognizes there’s a space technology race underway and the United States has to accelerate the pace of innovation. Part of the strategy will be to “leverage commercial technological advancements and acquisition processes.”

• The DoD will focus on these key priorities: a) to protect and defend U.S. and commercial space capabilities; b) to deter and defeat adversary hostile use of space; c) to deliver advanced operational space capabilities; d) to bolster the domestic civil and commercial space industry; and e) to uphold internationally accepted standards of responsible behavior.

 

WASHINGTON — The Defense Department has released an updated space strategy that replaces the 2011 document issued by the Obama

                   Steve Kitay

administration.

The Defense Space Strategy unveiled June 17 provides broad guidance to DoD for “achieving desired conditions in space over the next 10 years,” Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Space Policy Steve Kitay said at a Pentagon news conference.

The space strategy builds on the Trump administration’s 2018 national defense strategy that calls for the U.S. military to prepare to compete with rising military powers such as China and Russia.

DoD will work to maintain space superiority, provide space capabilities to U.S. and allied forces, and ensure stability in space, the strategy says.

“DoD has to confront the new reality that adversaries have more advanced weapons designed to target U.S. military satellites and deny the United States a key military advantage,” says the strategy. “Now we have to defend U.S. and allies to secure the domain.”

US North Korea Peace Talks Made Possible by USAF Secret Space Program

On June 12 President Donald Trump meets with North Korea’s supreme leader, Kim Jong-Un in Singapore to resolve the confrontation over the latter’s nuclear weapons program. The on-off-on again meeting has been a surprise to many believing that the bellicose language used by both leaders throughout 2017 was a sure sign that a nuclear confrontation was inevitable.

During Kim’s January 1, New Year’s Day address, he had announced that North Korea’s nuclear weapons program was completed with the successful testing of a hydrogen bomb and an intercontinental ballistic missile, the Hwasong 15. North Korea was now capable of not only launching nuclear armed ICBM missiles into U.S. territories such as Guam and Hawaii, but was also capable of hitting the U.S. mainland.  

On January 17, South Korea announced that a diplomatic breakthrough had been reached with North Korea. The two Koreas would march together at the upcoming February 9-25 Winter Olympics, and field a joint ice hockey team.

This was followed a few weeks after the end of the Olympics, by Kim Jong-Un’s March 6 offer to put his nuclear weapons program on hold and start candid talks with the U.S. Trump immediately accepted Kim’s offer, which had been mediated behind the scenes by senior South Korean officials.

Exactly why North Korea decided to reverse its bellicose policies, improve relations with South Korea, and enter into denuclearization talks after completing its nuclear weapons program has left many media sources puzzled.

One explanation is that the talks are solely due to warming ties between North and South Korea. Another is that North Korea is desperate for cash after years of punishing economic sanctions that have been very effective.

Some believe that Kim has launched the meeting merely to gain time and does not intend to follow through on any agreements reached at the talk. Yet another explanation is that Trump is setting Kim up for failure in order to justify future military actions against North Korea, where Kim will be scapegoated as the villain.

What multiple media sources have not considered is whistleblower testimonies revealing a deeper dynamic at play at the U.S. North Korea summit.

On October 7, 2017 Trump issued two tweets where he gave a stark warning about what his administration was planning for North Korea:

Trump’s inference was clear, a massive military strike was being planned to destroy North Korea’s military and nuclear infrastructure. Such an operation would require advanced weapons systems that could very quickly destroy much of North Korea’s military infrastructure in order to prevent it from retaliating against South Korea, Japan, or even the U.S. itself.

In a previous article, I pointed out that the kind of weapons systems required to take out North Korea’s nuclear infrastructure would have to be orders of magnitude more powerful than those used in the air wars against Iraq in 2003 and Serbia in 1999.

The U.S. would have to achieve its strategic goals in a matter of minutes, rather than weeks in order to prevent retaliatory nuclear strikes that could kill millions. To do so, Trump was ready to authorize the use of highly classified space based weapons against North Korea.

At the official level, space based weapons are non-existent and are merely being planned for the future.  However, whistleblowers/insiders have revealed the existence of operational space weapons such as “Rods of God”, which drops large rod-like projectiles from space with pinpoint accuracy and devastating results.

The effects of a “Rods of God” space weapon was depicted in the movie G.I Joe 2 according to Corey Goode and Emery Smith in a recent interview with David Wilcock:

David… What do you feel about the movie “G.I. Joe”? And did you have any . . .

Emery: I do recall seeing that. I don’t remember it too well, but I do recall seeing it and connecting the dots, we’ll say. And I think there was a lot to it at the time. I remember watching it and saying, “Wow! Here they are just coming blatantly out.” ,,,

David: They’re doing these beautiful visuals in the movie with computer animation.

Corey: Oh, yeah, well, especially the second one when they did the Rods from God attacks .. . . on the Earth when that’s exactly what we’re looking at in the North Korea thing.

Emery: Right. Right. Interesting. I didn’t see the second one.

David: They’re telephone-pole-sized pieces of tungsten that you can drop onto the Earth, and just gravity causes a very, very severe explosion that can devastate a huge amount of space.

Emery: Oh, yes. Yeah.

David: And he had talked about that. And I only watched the second “G.I. Joe” film recently, and I couldn’t believe that it was in there.

Emery: Wow! Yeah, that’s pretty amazing for them to blatantly come out and expose that classified information, but we do start to see that now all the time with the movies are giving tidbits.

In an earlier interview, I asked Goode what his sources had told him about the space weapons that were planned to be used against North Korea, he replied:

I would expect a number of EMP detonations over NK [North Korea] while at the same time “Rods from God” [RFG] projectiles would be released from orbit. It should be noted that North Korea has taken extreme measures to harden their bunkers and systems against EMP attacks.  

Each RFG Platform releases 12 projectiles the size of telephone poles. These projectiles are made of Tungsten and are coated with ceramic and have a guidance system similar to the JDAM conventional bombs.  

The existence of a U.S. Air Force run secret space program with space based weapons technologies is supported by photos taken on October 23, 2017, in the vicinity of MacDill Air Force Base, Tampa, Florida, which showed a rectangle shaped UFO.

The photographer, JP (who I have known since 2008), claims he had been earlier taken inside the rectangle UFO, and had been informed that it was a weapons platform. He says that he witnessed uniformed military personnel wearing the insignia of U.S. Air Force Special Operations who could operate the weapons system.

Trump’s secret plan to use “Rods of God” and other space based weapons against North Korea had greatly worried Kim, but it was the Hawaii ballistic missile alert on January 13, which took him down the path of cooperation. The missile alert coincided with Kim’s decision to begin secret talks with South Korea to improve relations through the 2018 Winter Olympics, which was officially announced only four days later, January 17.

So what happened during the Hawaii ballistic missile alert that made Kim seek cooperation with South Korea as a prelude to offering genuine denuclearization negotiations with the Trump administration?

On Saturday morning January 13, residents of the Hawaiian Islands received an emergency alert that warned of an incoming ballistic missile and instructed everyone to take cover. This is what appeared on peoples’ cell phones at 8:07 am local Hawaii time:

Multiple sources claiming that a ballistic nuclear missile had indeed been intercepted, and a cover up was underway were analyzed in my first article on the incident. My second article pointed to a rogue Deep State/CIA faction that used a boomer submarine to create a false flag attack, which was intended start a war with North Korea.  

My third article on the incident described a U.S. Air Force run secret space program that had used its deep space platforms to shoot down the ballistic missile that had been launched. In my fourth article, I pointed out how the whistleblower group QAnon, which is closely tied to the White House, had confirmed that the Hawaii missile alert had been a real false flag attack, and that the goal was to frame North Korea as the culprit.

Essentially, once Kim realized that he had been betrayed by the Deep State/CIA faction that had secretly helped him develop a ballistic nuclear weapons program, he decided to abandon his nuclear weapons program and bellicose rhetoric against President Trump.

Consequently, the June 12 Summit marks a genuine turning point in U.S. North Korea relations. There is a real possibility that agreements will be reached to formally end the Korean War, start a genuine Korean unification process, and even lay the foundation for a U.S. military withdrawal from the Korean peninsula.

The back story as to how a Secret Space program was instrumental in bringing about the US North Korea Summit through the threatened, and later actual, use of its space based weapons platforms, is something that will be eventually revealed through official disclosure of these highly classified USAF programs.
