While the politicians are preoccupied with the catastrophe that is the Wuhan virus and the possible compromise of global telecommunications systems by Huawei’s 5G products and services, little attention is being given to BeiDou…


With the emergence of authoritarian “Big Brother” surveillance by China, and to some extent, the United States, the value of owning the keys to the tracking system is invaluable. One need only consider how many military, commercial, and individual services are based on location services?


BeiDou, Chinese for the constellation known as the “Northern” or “Big” Dipper,” including the North Star used in navigation systems, is the Chinese Navigation Satellite System.

While not complete at this date, the system is integrated into many military, commercial, and individual applications – including approximately 70-percent of Chinese smartphones, according to the Ran Chengqi, director of the China Satellite Navigation System Management Office. The same smartphones that form a backbone element of Communist China’s surveillance society.

According to published reports… “BeiDou receivers have been integrated into over 6.5 million taxis, buses, and trucks. And as of 2019, it had more than 400 million users worldwide. Over 30 countries, largely in the Middle East, Africa, and Asia, use the system, including for various projects in Indonesia, Kuwait, Uganda, Myanmar, the Maldives, Cambodia, Thailand, and Russia.”

Chengqi reports that two more satellite launches will complete the 3rd generation BeiDou system by June 2020.

Bottom line…

Unlike American politicians who focus on 2-year, 4-year, and 6-year cycles, the Chinese take the long view. It is not uncommon for the Chinese to say, if not now, then when – and the when can be 20+ years in the future.

So while the politicians dither with their anti-Trump campaign and the intelligence agencies are preoccupied covering their past criminality, who is watching the store? Certainly not Representative Adam Schiff, the Chair of the House Intelligence Committee, who was so focused on Trump that his committee missed the early warnings of the Wuhan virus that were emanating from the intelligence community.

If we do not wake up soon, we will be majorly screwed by the Chinese who have stolen our technology, built-out their economy, improved their military – and decimated our economy and social order. All while politicians are worried about their own political futures, positions, perks, privileges, and profits.
