“LightSquared signals caused harmful interference to majority of GPS receivers tested,” according to the draft prepared for a meeting next week of U.S. officials reviewing the LightSquared proposal. “No additional testing is required to confirm harmful interference exists.”Who uses GPS? Everybody. Airlines, the military, your cell phone, your grandmother, everyone has a GPS device of some sort. They're everywhere, they're in lots of electronic devices and LightSquared disrupts them. It's like some sort of bad B-novel. This evil company comes out with a product that will disrupt navigational equipment all over the world. Our President, realizing the damage that this product will do to our economy, rides to the rescue, saving the American military, Airline passengers, the common folk trying to find the grocery store.... oh, wait, that didn't happen.
LightSquared, backed by $3 billion from Falcone’s Harbinger Capital Partners hedge fund, faces challenges from makers of global-positioning system devices who say the service will disrupt navigation by cars, boats, tractors and planes. U.S. regulators are withholding approval as they check on claims of interference.
Obama is pushing this scheme. It seems that LightSquared's corporate owners are big Democratic donors.
Why is this important? Philip Falcone is a big donor to the Democratic Party, and he has billions of dollars at stake in LightSquared’s approval. Also, Obama himself was an investor in LightSquared at one point, as were or are a number of his associates. The resounding failure in this test makes it look like the White House pressured witnesses to back off of exposing LightSquared’s product as exactly the kind of dangerous problem that critics had maintained all along — with the intent to mislead Congress into moving forward with LightSquared’s government contracts.The White House is trying to limit the damage, where they should be telling Falcone that his product is a failure, that it has the potential to do untold damage to GPS systems worldwide. But no, it they're trying to derail testimony that is damaging to LightSquared. It looks as if the White House is actively supporting the disruption of millions of GPS units worldwide.
It sounds like an evil plot, and of course, our President has his fingers right in the middle of it. I've come to expect evil from our President. From Fast and Furious, to the economy, to this LightSquared mess, it looks as if he's actively trying to damage our country.
