episode 59: Part 2: Why We need to Care About “Space Warfare” with Kevin Freeman and Frank Gaffney



Our military has a disturbing tendency to keep fighting the last wars, not the likely future ones. Now a visionary general is being forced into retirement because he’s advocating a very different approach to counter Chinese aims to achieve dominance in space.

By employing technologies from space like lasers and robotic systems, China could severely compromise our national security and our economy. Take out our GPS system, and banking comes to a grinding halt.

On another front, China’s massive surveillance state and social credit scores should send a chill down the spines of free people everywhere. Worse, China also aims to “export” these systems throughout the world.  It’s already happening in Venezuela and wherever they build their “Belt and Road”. And with Huawei 5G they could have capabilities to monitor the entire world.

Frank Gaffney, founder of the Center for Security Policy and Kevin Freeman, host of the Economic War Room, explain on the Bill Walton Show.
