>>>>>>DEADLINE TO COMMENT — THIS SATURDAY, JULY 10<<<<<<
Please submit some testimony, however brief, about these doomsday weapons. COPY AND PASTE FROM TEMPLATE BELOW. E mail comments to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Pentagon’s Proposed Action entails up to six flight test launches at up to four different launch locations per year, over the next 10 years. Test objectives are expected to dictate range selection from Atlantic and Pacific test ranges. IMPACTS TO MARINE LIFE FROM SPENT STAGES AND HYPERSONIC PAYLOAD HITTING OCEAN WILL BE SEVERE.

This short video shows what hypersonic missiles are and how dangerous they are to life on Earth.
This PEA/OEA is being prepared as a Programmatic Environmental Assessment (EA) to provide an analysis of multiple launch locations that will be available to the test directorates over the next 10 years.
The U.S. Army RCCTO and U.S. Navy SSP are considering four launch locations: one on the west coast and one in Hawai`i, both with impact sites in the Pacific Ocean, and two launch locations on the east coast, with impact sites in the Atlantic Ocean. The Pacific locations analyzed are the Pacific Missile Range Facility, Barking Sands, Kauai, Hawai`i; Vandenberg Space Force Base, California; and BOA impact sites in the Pacific Ocean. The east coast locations include the NASA Wallops Flight Facility, Virginia; Cape Canaveral Space Force Station, Florida; and Atlantic BOA impact sites.
The Draft JFC PEA/OEA and Draft Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) are available at http://jfceaoea(dot)govsupport(dot)us.
Public comments on the Draft JFC PEA/OEA and Draft FONSI will be accepted from June 11, 2021 to July 10, 2021 and can be provided in either of the following ways:
(1) E mail comments by July 10, 2021 to email@example.com

Public comments from Global Network Against Weapons & Nuclear Power in Space
Regarding: Joint Flight Campaign PEA
Our organization opposes the proposed action which entails up to six Hypersonic flight test launches at up to four different launch locations per year, over the next 10 years. Test objectives are expected to dictate range selection from Atlantic and Pacific test ranges. We believe the following:
- Testing of Hypersonics will dramatically escalate the nuclear arms race/new Cold War
- Our nation can’t afford another arms race — especially one in space
- We need to be spending our national treasury on dealing with our real enemy — climate crisis and growing economic inequality
- Toxic rocket fuel exacerbates an already grave climate crisis
- It’s time the warmongers listened to the taxpayers
We support the No Action alternative.

Dear Mr. Fuller,
I served 29 years in the U.S. Army/Army Reserves and retired as a Colonel. I was also a U.S. diplomat for 16 years and served in U.S. Embassies in Nicaragua, Grenada, Somalia, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Sierra Leone, Micronesia, Afghanistan and Mongolia.
I have lived in Honolulu, Hawai’i for 21 years. I am very concerned about the testing of hypersonic missiles and other missiles at the Kauai Barking Sands Missile Test Site. As I understand, the U.S. military is asking that Barking Sands will be used six times a year for ten years to test the hypersonic missiles.
I strongly believe the U.S. government’s testing of hypersonic missiles will greatly increase the nuclear arms race and create a new Cold War.
I also believe testing at Barking Sands Kauai will make the small Hawaiian Islands a major target for retaliation if the U.S. fires hypersonic missiles at China, Russia or any other country.
We in the U.S. can’t afford another arms race, particularly a weapons race in space. We need our taxes to deal with the climate crisis and the economic inequality we find in our own country.
And the toxic rocket fuel increases the challenging climate crisis we face.
The hypersonic rockets are not needed for our national security.
Diplomacy, not hypersonic rockets and war, are what will ensure our national security.

This is the second in a series of articles coinciding with Independence Day in the U.S. We are looking at themes related to industry vs. non-industry science, captured regulators, and other issues around the topics of independence and interdependence, regarding involuntary, ubiquitous EMF/RF and 5G exposures. Thank you for reading.
“An Anti Imperialist Ponders the 4th of July and its Meaning for His Newborn Child”
“On his newborn daughter’s first July 4th holiday, an anti-imperialist writer ponders what he hopes for her to come to understand about her nation of birth.
Gabriela, you are part of the four percent of the world’s population that celebrates today, July 4th, as Independence Day. We are in the extreme minority of the earth’s inhabitants that claim citizenship within the belly of the beast of the global empire, the United States.
Questions that usually go unasked on this day include: Why are we celebrating this nation? What, if any, benefits have been brought to the world by the existence of the United States?
My hope is that as you age you consider these questions and investigate some of the assumptions many Americans hold about their nation. This day can be an opportunity to make an honest assessment of this country’s past and present, with the goal of working toward a more humane future. During this reflection, your father hopes that you take into account the following considerations.
You have been born into an empire with asymmetric power!
Gabriela, your incidental birth within the United States means you are part of a citizenry that has a collective proverbial gun pointed at the people of the rest of the world. You are a member of a nation that holds unprecedented military and economic power on the global stage. This understanding should serve as a framework for all exploration into your nation’s relationship with the global community.
The statistics speak for themselves. The United States’s annual near $800 billion military budget is more than the next 10 nations’ military spending combined. The next highest funded armed forces, China’s, spends less than one-third of what the U.S. does.”
Comparing the U.S. military budget to other supposed rivals becomes almost comical, with Russia spending just over $60 billion, Iran spending $15 billion, and North Korea’s budget remaining lower than that of the New York City police department at $4 billion. Further illustrating this asymmetric power in the globe are the 800 foreign military bases possessed by the U.S. compared to a combined 70 possessed by the rest of the world’s nations.” – By Matt McKenna

So where does all the money go? 5G = Full Spectrum Dominance
The ‘Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space’ (also known as the ‘Global Network’ or the ‘GN’) is an international network of organizations and individuals concerned about the militarization and exploitation of space.
Koohan Paik-Mander, a board member of the Global Network, discusses the US empire’s strategy of fighting wars from both space and the sea in her article, Countering the “China Threat”–At What Price?
“In early June 2021, in a classified directive to Pentagon officials, U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin slammed the former Trump administration for talking big but never taking action to counter ‘the China threat.’
Austin made it clear that things would be different under President Biden. His ‘tough guy’ rhetoric strikes just the right tone for a massive, costly, military-infrastructure overhaul that would render the conventional warfare of the twentieth century unrecognizable: more nukes, fewer troops, and an omnipotent 5G network.
The goal of this overhaul is to give the United States and its allies the ability to summon, at once, unmanned military forces to rain terror down on any spot in the world—a swarm of drones, hypersonic missiles, submarine torpedoes, and bombers—all with the ease of calling an Uber.”
“[ ]…even more expansive swaths of the ocean are being set aside for year-round military exercises.
The most egregious example is the MITT (Mariana Islands Training and Testing), a plan to transform over a million square miles of biodiverse ecosystems into the largest-ever range complex for bombing and firing practice. The impacted area would be larger than the states of Washington, Oregon, California, Idaho, Nevada, Arizona, Montana, and New Mexico combined.
The largest multinational open-ocean military exercises in history will take place here, home to 26 species of cetaceans. The navy itself estimates that its activities will maim or kill over 81,000 whales and dolphins per year. And that doesn’t count the ecological casualties anticipated in other existing exercise ranges, such as those around Hawaii, California, Alaska, Australia, in the Sea of Japan, and in the Bay of Bengal.” – Koohan Paik-Mander

Bright Green Lies
In a recent interview referencing the new book Bright Green Lies, author Derrick Jensen invites the listener to “Make your loyalty to the natural world.” He notes that
“The environmental movement has been captured. At one point it was about protecting wild places and wild beings. And these days it has become about powering industrial civilization.
One example of this – You can have 100,000 people who march on the streets of whatever city, if you ask why they are marching – they’ll say, ‘we want to save the planet.’ If you ask their demands – what they’ll say is ‘We want subsidies for wind and solar industries.’
It is an extraordinary coup –I cannot think of any other social movement in history that has been so completely captured and turned into a lobbying arm for a sector of industrial capitalism. That’s terrifying.”
His interview was posted in early June of 2021.
The Co-opt of Environmentalism is Insignificant Compared to Post-Covid Wireless/5G Disaster Capitalism, Which Is Not Even Capitalism
I agree with everything that Derrick Jensen says, except that I can think of something even more terrifying than the fact that so many major environmental groups are a lobbying arm for industrial capitalism.
Post-covid, worldwide, beyond the capture of environmental organizations and the Bright Green Lies, society at large – including the health care sector, the education sector, the Black Lives Matters movement, rural America, banking, the utility sector, entertainment, finance, investment, agriculture, military, academia, human rights, and nearly all sides of political divides – has been co-opted to support the roll-out of the unsafe, insecure, unsustainable, surveillance and warfare-enabling, planet-destroying, space-invading, invisible, wireless 5G/broadband telecommunications network.
As Matt McKenna cautioned his newborn daughter, the U.S. does have its guns pointed at the rest of the world. And, increasingly, it also has its weapons pointed at its own people, as well as the ecosystem, including earth, sea, sky, and space.
Just Say No.

From World Beyond War
A CALL TO CHANGE THE PUBLIC CONVERSATION
TEN URGENT STEPS FOR NUCLEAR ABOLITION
- Stop making new weapons!
- Institute a moratorium on any new weapons, laboratories, delivery systems!
- No refurbishing or “modernization” of old weapons! LET THEM RUST IN PEACE!
- Immediately separate all nuclear bombs from their missiles as China does.
- Take up repeated offers from Russia and China to negotiate treaties to ban space weapons and cyberwar and dismantle Trump’s Space Force.
- Reinstate the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty, the Open Skies Treaty, the Intermediate Nuclear Forces Treaty.
- Remove U.S. missiles from Romania and Poland.
- Remove U.S. nuclear bombs from NATO bases in Germany, Holland, Belgium, Italy, and Turkey.
- Sign the new Treaty for the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.
- Take up past Russian offers to reduce U.S. and Russian nuclear arsenals from what is now 13,000 bombs to 1,000 each, and call the other seven nations, with 1,000 nuclear bombs between them, to the table to negotiate for the complete elimination of nuclear weapons as required by the Nonproliferation Treaty of 1970.
