Senators Given Satellite Phones in Case of ‘Disruptive Event’

Social media is abuzz with rumors after it was confirmed that dozens of US senators were issued emergency satellite phones in case of a disruptive event.

CBS News reported these devices are part of a series of new security measures being offered to senators by Karen Gibson, Senate Sergeant at Arms.

Gibson testified last month that 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, the network 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,” Gibson testified.

The news of the satellite phones surfaced after a fake photograph of the Pentagon under attack caused a brief panic. The image was created by artificial intelligence.

The New York Times reported Sunday that some 30 tons of a highly explosive chemical had gone missing on a rail shipment from Wyoming to California in April. The explosives have still not been found.

And in recent weeks, American journalist Gordon Chang has been posting ominous warnings about a looming war with China.

“Pray for peace. Protect your family. Get ready for the most destructive war in history,” he wrote in one post. “This is the moment to defend our country. We’re not getting more time or a second chance.”

So many folks are wondering what sort of “disruptive event” Congress is preparing for.
