Russia’s GLONASS (Global Navigation Satellite System), is a space-based Global Positioning System (GPS) operated by the Russian Aerospace Defense Forces. It is the Russian version of America’s military GPS and is currently the only alternative navigational system in operation capable of global coverage. GLONASS first become operational in 1982 and achieved global coverage in 2011. During the first reign of Vladimir Putin, GLONASS became the first priority of the Russian Federal Space Agency, consuming nearly one third of the Agency budget. It was, after all, imperative to duplicate the accuracy of America’s GPS system.
Obama’s State Department will soon consider allowing Roscosmos to build monitoring stations on United States soil in order to improve the accuracy of GLONASS. The New York Times reported that Russian and State Department officials met in April to negotiate “general requirements for possible GLONASS monitoring stations in U.S. territory and the scope of planned future discussions.” According to State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf, “no final decision has been made.” In the big picture, Secretary of State John Kerry believes that Mr. Obama should accede to the wishes of Vladimir Putin as it would improve America’s relationship with the Russian Government. Naturally, allowing Russian assets on American soil is a sign of weakness. Liberals, like bullies, are basically cowards; and Vladimir knows that.
CIA, Other Intelligence Agencies, and the Pentagon
The intelligence community are warning the Obama Regime’s “teacher’s lounge theorists” not to allow Roscosmos to construct GLONASS monitoring stations on American soil. They are concerned that the stations would greatly enhance the capability of the Russian space system, significantly improving the accuracy of Russian weapons against U.S. targets. Stations on US soil might also enhance Russia’s capacity to collect intelligence on all Americans within American borders, with U.S. government approval. The stations could be used to interfere with U.S. GPS systems, allowing Russia to disrupt commercial and military navigation and tracking. It will allow the Russians and their proxies easier access to vital infrastructure assets.
The State Department, in its haughtiness, would insist that US-based monitoring systems were being used for peaceful purposes only, just like Iranian nukes. Then again, this may be a part of Agenda 21, surrendering American sovereignty to protect the “One.”
This is a story that must be followed by every American who wishes to protect the sovereignty of the United States. The treacherous and traitorous Barack Hussein Obama must not permit a perpetual enemy to obtain a foothold in the US.
