US GOV’T PLANNING FOR TOTAL CELLULAR OUTAGE?
Hal Turner is reporting that US senators were all just given satellite phones “in case something happens where they cannot use cell phones.”.
He is also saying:
High Level US politicians will be vacationing memorial day weekend with their families at various undisclosed “Continuity of Government (COG)” locations.
People are supposed to be at the destinations no later than May 27, 2023
Maybe they are worried about something?
Here is a media report.
Senators issued satellite phones, offered demonstrations on upgraded security devices
The satellite phone technology has been offered to all 100 senators. CBS News has learned at least 50 have accepted the phones, which Senate administrative staff recommend senators keep in close proximity during their travels.
In testimony before the Senate Appropriations Committee last month, Senate Sergeant at Arms Karen Gibson said satellite communication is being deployed “to ensure a redundant and secure means of communication during a disruptive event.”
Gibson said the phones are a security backstop in the case of an emergency that “takes out communications” in part of America. Federal funding will pay for the satellite airtime needed to utilize the phone devices.
A Department of Homeland Security advisory said satellite phones are a tool for responding to and coordinating government services in the case of a “man-made” or natural disaster that wipes out communication.
Gibson has also opened an office “demonstration space” in the basement of the Russell Senate Office Building to offer senators and staff an exhibition of new home state office security upgrades. The demonstration room offers exhibitions of “duress buttons,” mail screening devices and safety glass to reduce the risk of attacks.
In her testimony before the Senate panel in April, Gibson reported, “Our team provided initial physical security enhancements for 31 offices and improved existing security for 52 others in 2022. Maintaining security systems in good working order is a priority, and to support this effort our team conducted over 622 service calls to maintain, repair, and or test and inspect state office physical security systems in 2022.”
Senate administrators have also offered “stop the bleed” training to better equip staffers to respond to medical emergencies and victims of attacks.
In April, the House Sergeant at Arms William McFarland told legislators there is “robust participation” in a program to help House members secure their home residences. McFarland said that House administrators are coordinating with local police departments to help protect members of Congress who hold events in their home states and to help better secure the homes of members.
A spending bill passed in late 2022 provided additional funds for hometown security measures for Congress. The legislation required security administrators to “enhance member protection including providing a security program for Congressional Leadership, expanding Dignitary Protection Division services and expanding USCP field office presence,” which would deploy and broaden Capitol Police protection in cities outside of Washington.
Though the U.S. Capitol complex is shielded by a force of nearly 2,000 Capitol police employees, there have been growing concerns about hometown security for members of Congress. A California man was charged in a 2022 attack at the San Francisco home of then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The assailant was allegedly targeting Nancy Pelosi when he confronted and attacked Pelosi’s husband Paul with a hammer.
In a May 15 attack at the Fairfax, Virginia, office of Rep. Gerry Connolly, one of Connolly’s constituents is accused of attacking two of the congressman’s staffers with a metal baseball bat. Both were briefly hospitalized and are recovering.

These satellite phones are guaranteed to have bugs planted inside them, so any Senator who uses the phone to conduct personal conversations where they might reveal sensitive, private matters or even discuss matters of a national security nature – the bug planters who probably have ties to that certain Middle Eastern nation who Jeffrey Epstein used to provide blackmail dirt to – can collect all kinds of juicy intel that can be used to tighten the grip that said nation has over the United States government.
Any American politician who is too stupid to be suspicious of these sat phones and realize the potential risks of using one deserves to be removed from office and replaced with someone who has a fully functioning brain.
No Phone, No Problem. (For me)
Landlines only go down when poop really hit’s the fan. The worst hurricane’s have only knocked outer regional areas, for about 2 weeks. Phone and Power were restored within a week.
These satellite phones aren’t worth it to me. I have no one to call. My family and friends are within walking distance. Signal interrupters/disrupters have existed for decades…
Water/Power cutoff + 5-10 Drone strikes. (20-40 ATSM of varying Lbs.)
Or 1-2 carpet bombings/3-7 conventional missile strikes or 1 Nuclear device of any kind will cripple my province. (At the prime location; the Capital. International airport(s). Or fuel refineries, any part of the undersea communications cables)
An EMP could do the like, on a larger scale.
You could stop ships from transporting goods, and 400 000 are doomed. (No Petrol, No Food.) We depend completely on imported goods through shipping lanes.
Mainly OceanX from the Great lakes through the St. laurent. (St. Lawrence)
During the heaviest of lockdowns in 2021-2022 shipping by OceanX was cut by 2/3rds.
Because of supply chain/demand/manipulation. Causing OceanX to wait 3X as long to fill 1 ship for export. Things have not returned to the previous. There are less items, less stock and higher + higher prices. (The shelves are never stocked to the back anymore.)
The provincial liquor company, that has a monopoly on sales. Records an over 600% increase in sales! During that same time!
I already have my books collected. My plans, if things go dark for 14+ days.
I’ve a Bible and the light from God. The sun. Some food, a water source… After that, who knows? I expect it to be “Heaven or Hell.”
