House Intel Republican Warns Russian Space Weapon May ‘Blind’ U.S. Economy And Military | Eastern North Carolina Now

    A Republican member of the House Intelligence Committee said on Sunday the space weapon that Russia is trying to develop could "blind" the U.S. economy and military.

    Rep. Mike Waltz (R-FL) told Fox News anchor Maria Bartiromo on "Sunday Morning Futures" about the potential impacts of the threat that engulfed much of Washington in the past week.

    "If this weapon is allowed to fully deploy, it could completely blind our economy. It would take out our GPS," Waltz said. "It could blind our military. It is incredibly serious. It's a weapon of mass destruction, not just us - countries all over the world."

    The issue came to light in the past week when House Intelligence Chairman Mike Turner (R-OH) released a statement calling on the Biden administration to declassify intelligence about a "destabilizing" military capability from a hostile foreign power.

    In the ensuing days, the White House conceded Russia had been working on an anti-satellite capability but stressed that it had not been deployed. And Turner has faced blowback for going public after the panel made some details available to all House members.

    Waltz said Turner was "very frustrated after sending multiple classified letters to the administration asking, 'What are you going to do to stop this threat, to deal with this threat?'"

    He said, "And it won't surprise you: we got radio silence. So the committee voted unanimously, Republican and Democrat, to say, you know what, all members need to be aware. This threat is so serious, so grave, all members need to be aware."

    Waltz conceded a "kind of blow up" but emphasized that it is being taken seriously as the "director of national intelligence and the national security adviser were on the Hill the next day giving us a strategy and telling us what they're going to do about it."

    The "fear," Waltz added, is that Russian President Vladimir Putin "has calculated we are far more dependent on space than he is, so that perhaps this would be at his advantage or that he could use it as a serious deterrence to keep us from doing what we need to do."

    Bartiromo pointed out that some of Turner's critics have suggested the chairman was angling to gin up support for more aid to Ukraine, which has stalled in Congress. Waltz dismissed the idea that Ukraine funds or FISA surveillance reauthorization were motivating factors for the chairman.

    "It had nothing to do with Ukraine. It had nothing to do with FISA," he said. "FISA, actually, the 702 Section of that informs all kinds of intelligence. Without getting into details, there was some new information that confirmed some things that we had suspected."

    Waltz added, "And it was the radio silence, the appearance that the administration was sleepwalking as this threat continued to grow. That's what really drove it. And, again, it was a unanimous vote - all sides, from the committee."

poll#211
26 days after the October 7th Terror attacks on Israel, where over 1400 Jewish men, women and children were gruesomely murdered, and hundreds more made hostage: Should the Biden /Harris administration finally state that the administration's primary Middle East negotiating partner, Iran, is behind the funding and strategy of the aggressors, the Hamas Terrorists, or continue to take the more moderate position of "Don't," which is clearly not working?
  Yes, name Iran as the funding /strategy culprit, and begin to enforce the President Trump era sanctions to END Iran's ability to prosecute this war against Israel and the United States.
  No, Iran is a valuable partner in the motives of the Biden / Harris administration, and must not be named as the culprit and our enemy.
  I have larger concerns just to survive in this economy.

In the minds of many, since January 20, 2021, the World has become far less safe in every theater of conflict, beginning with the attack of Israel by Iran /Hamas, so the question becomes: What caused this Worldwide calamity of extreme geopolitical dysfunction, and what will correct it?
  Joe Biden is the cause of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when a Republican is elected president.
  This delayed Worldwide dysfunction and constant conflict is all Donald Trump's fault, as it is with everything that occurs going forward, and long before the man ever became the 45th president..
  Joe Biden is the "root cause" of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when former President Donald John Trump is elected president.
  In the imitable words of Alfred E. Newman: "What, me worry?"

Listening to a Biden speech makes one very aware of why Biden refuses to take a cognitive test as part of his annual physical. He would flunk it. Trump, on the other hand, clearely is still sharp.

Americans currently are hung-up on the ugly fact that Joe Biden is a terrible domestic president, due to his direct influence on an economy designed by his administration to hollow-out the middle class and create an invasion of "Black and Brown People to forever change the demographics of the electorate."

What Americans should also consider is that Non patriot President Biden is also the absolute worst foreign policy president in modern times, remembering well that ...

Stupid will get one killed; by that I am declaring that the Corrupt President Biden will continue to attempt to destroy this Republic if allowed in office.
