Entrepreneur Battling Communist China for Control of Earth’s ’Goldilocks Zone’


Video

Fresh Look America
Paul Greaney

Declan Ganley, founder and CEO of Rivada Networks, is in a fierce battle over Earth’s “Goldilocks zone”—a prime location for a low Earth orbit satellite network.
“This is the most state-of-the-art communications network that the planet will have ever seen,” Ganley told NTD’s Paul Greaney.

The network would compete directly with Elon Musk’s Starlink network. But Rivada’s permits are for an even sweeter position in space.

“Think of these as cell towers in space. This position puts you on top of the hills, and not down in the valleys … above Elon Musk’s Starlink constellation.”
Rivada is a commercial entity and plans to use the network for purely commercial purposes—licensing use of the network to businesses and governments around the world. But a network that powerful could, hypothetically, be weaponized for military use.

“Let’s say something was traveling at enormous speed, but you wanted to be able to communicate with, guide, direct it—whatever. This would be an ideal network for that,” Ganley explained.

A Chinese Communist Party-backed company is trying to sink Ganley’s plans and deploy its own network in the Goldilocks zone.

Before Rivada appeared on the scene, the Chinese provided the financing for the project—at least $120 million. It partnered with a German company, Kleo Connect, the brains behind the innovative satellite network. But after the Germans got wind that the Chinese were building a replica company in Shanghai, they terminated the deal. The Germans feared the Chinese were planning to steal their technology.

“Not just technology, but the whole project lock, stock, and barrel: filings, orbital rights, the whole lot,” said Ganley.

After the breakup, Ganley came on the scene with new financing, backed by PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel and former White House chief of staff Karl Rove.
Rivada is now in a race against time. It has seven years to launch as many of the 600 satellites granted by the permits as it can. After that, its permits will be constrained.

And the Chinese aren’t making it easy for him.
“This must have some sort of strategic importance for the CCP and their friends because otherwise, the resources wouldn’t be available to wage the kind of very high-profile and public lawfare that they are waging,” Ganley added.

US Ambassador Lines Up for COVID-19 Testing; Australia Warns East Timor Against Chinese Debt​



China in Focus

New lockdown mandates are popping up in China, just ahead of the Chinese Communist Party’s most critical congress of the year. A U.S. ambassador is abiding by Chinese virus control mandates. He was spotted standing in line to get tested, while internet users question why. Taiwan shoots down Chinese drones for the first time ever. An expert says the island has to push back, or Beijing will keep pushing boundaries. We zoom in on one viewer’s question: Will U.S. efforts to counter China also hurt Taiwan? A warning comes from Australia as one of its neighbors moves toward “unsustainable debt” to the Chinese over an energy project.

A World Stood up to Beijing, A Conversation with Miles Yu | Zooming in with Simone Gao​


Zooming In with Simone Gao

Dr. Miles Yu, director of the China Center at Hudson Institute, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s top China advisor summed up the increasingly tense situation over the Taiwan Strait in three sentences: Bullying a small country will never work as the small will gain more inner strength and external support; America and its allies will defend Taiwan; Taiwan, never give in to threats and bully. Dr. Yu was appointed director of a new China Center at the Hudson Institute last month. He said this new China Center is a product of a unique moment in US history when America’s attitude, understanding and resolve to face the Chinese party has reached an unprecedented national consensus. Simone discussed this unique historical moment, heightened tension in the Taiwan Strait and China’s top power struggle before the Party’s 20th national congress with Miles.

‘You’re Either Standing for Freedom, or You’re With Freedom’s Enemies, You Have to Choose’: Gaffney​



China in Focus

In this special episode, we sat down with Frank Gaffney, executive chairman at the Center for Security Policy. He’s one of the authors of the report titled “The CCP is at War with America.” He sheds light on the origins of the pandemic, how the Chinese regime is conducting something called unrestricted warfare that covers all sectors of society, and what that means for our daily lives. Gaffney said, “We know, however this virus got out of that laboratory, whether it was by accident or by design, the Chinese Communist Party deliberately, knowingly, and murderously unleashed it on the rest of the world, including our own country.” And marking Gorbachev’s recent passing, Gaffney recalled his own days working in the Reagan administration. He noted: “In 1980, Ronald Reagan sought the mandate of the American people to roll back and defeat the totalitarian communist threat of that time, what he used to call an existential threat to freedom, that Mikhail Gorbachev presided over the demise of. So it reminds us, I think, in our moment, when we’re dealing with, frankly, in the Chinese Communist Party, a vastly more dangerous threat than the Soviet Union was in its heyday. We need to have a similar mandate, given to elected officials to take steps to counter, to roll back, to defeat the Chinese Communist Party because they are at war with us.” He added the Chinese regime has “induced greedy American leaders of business and the financial sector or our political class or others, to participate in building up the Chinese Communist Party’s power. And they are certainly saying, ‘Hey, wait, you know, we don’t want to disengage. We don’t want to uncouple. This is a really good thing. We’re doing very well.’ Well, they personally may be, but our country is being imperiled by it, as is the rest of the world. “So I think I would say to people who make that argument: you are either with us and standing for freedom, or you are with freedom’s enemies. You have to choose. And this is the time for making that choice,” he added.
