Russian Hosting BRICSA Space Agencies To Plan “Satellite…

It’s difficult these days to sort out worthwhile stories from the noise coming from the USSA about the elections, particularly as more and more email dumps occur. But I’ve tried to remain focused on other stories that I think deserve our attention and usual high octane speculation. And this story, shared by Ms. K.M., definitely caught my attention:

BRICS to Set up Joint Satellite Constellation

So there you have it: the BRICs nations, or as I like to call them, the BRICSA nations -Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa – are meeting to coordinate their space programs and satellite programs to create “…a joint grouping of satellites for the Earth remote sensing and are currently finalizing legal aspects of an agreement on the exchange of data gathered from the Earth remote sensing,” at least, that is the public explanation being given by the head of Roscosmos, Igor Komarov.

And I believe it, for such coordination and cooperation, to to mention data sharing, would be of benefit to all three countries, and moreover, conceivably help in the planning and implementation of the Chinese “silk road” project and the build-out of Eurasian infrastructure. This is, in other words, but another component of that project.

But I strongly suspect there’s something else lurking behind the scenes here, and that’s international financial clearing. The “immanent collapse of the dollar” as the world’s reserve currency has been a favorite meme of certain types of analysts for decades now, and I can remember hearing the beginnings of it under President Nixon when he took the country off the Bretton Woods agreement. It was the beginning of the petro-dollar, but one might as well call it the pertro-space dollar, since that reserve status depends on two things: the strength of the US military, and equally if not more importantly, strength in space, control of space communications assets, through which so much international trade and financial clearing is now conducted electronically.

The bottom line here is that whoever controls space assets, and hence space communication, and whoever can defend those assets, controls international financial clearing. And who controls international clearing, is going to be the country that, in the final analysis, preserves reserve currency status.

Most of us have probably read those stories about…

Russia’s Sputnik – Missile Tests & De-Dollarization…

Many of you sent these two articles to me, though did so without suggesting they might be connected, which I am going to argue in today’s blog, and I hope people will remember yesterday’s blog about the recent factory explosions in China and Russia in the context of today’s high octane speculations, for I believe these two articles, which were posted by Sputnik within a day of each other, and approximately a week before said factory explosions about which I blogged yesterday, does put everything into a very intriguing context. Here’s the two articles:

Gold-Backed Ruble, Yuan to Trigger Global De-Dollarization

Washington Left in the Dust: Russia Flies Strategic Space Warfare Missile

For sometime we’ve been tracking the emergence of the BRICSA bloc on this website, and arguing that any moves to introduce the Chinese reminbi as an alternative currency system, will require consensus within that bloc, and more importantly, an alternative or parallel system of international financial clearing, which in turn will require a system of space-based assets to do so, and this in turn will require the ability to defend them. As we’ve noted in articles on this website, the moves to such a system have been proceeding at an accelerated pace over the past year, with the announcement of China’s Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank(AIIB), and prior to this, a number of bi-lateral currency exchange deals between various BRICSA bloc nations by-passing the dollar.

I’ve also pointed out, in agreement with financial experts such as Catherine Austin Fitts, that reserve currency status accrues, historically, to the nation with the strongest navy, which in modern terms translates not only to the actual sea lanes, but to space-based assets and the ability to defend them.
