    Trump: Administration 'seriously thinking' about adding 'Space Force' to military

    http://thehill.com/policy/defense/38...ce-to-military

    Expand the war on illegal aliens?

    President Trump on Tuesday said his administration is “seriously thinking” about creating a new military branch known as the “Space Force.”

    “You will be part of the five proud branches of the United States Armed Forces: Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and the Coast Guard. And we’re actually thinking of a sixth, and that would be the Space Force,” Trump said in the White House Rose Garden while presenting the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy to the Army football team.

    “Does that make sense?" he asked. "You probably haven’t even heard that. I’m just telling you now because we’re getting very big in space, both militarily and for other reasons. And we are seriously thinking of the Space Force."

    Trump in March first pushed for the idea of creating a new military branch that would specialize in fighting and policy in space.

    “You know, I was saying it the other day — because we’re doing a tremendous amount of work in space — I said, 'Maybe we need a new force, we’ll call it the Space Force.' And I was not really serious, and then I said, 'What a great idea, maybe we’ll have to do that. That could happen,'” Trump said during a speech at Air Station Miramar in San Diego at the time.

    The endorsement was met with mixed reactions from lawmakers.

    Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Ala.), who last year led a failed effort with Rep. Jim Cooper (D-Tenn.) to establish a space corps within the Air Force, praised Trump’s comments.

    “Looking forward to working with [Trump] on this initiative!” Rogers wrote on Twitter.

    But Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) — who last year opposed establishing a space corps — has said he’s not a fan of the proposal.

    “I’m not too keen on ripping space out of the Air Force and creating a space corps,” Nelson said in March.

    Despite the protests, lawmakers on the House Armed Services Strategic Forces Subcommittee are moving forward with a push to build up a space war fighting unit, as marked in its portion of the annual defense policy bill.

    Though it would not be the separate military branch as floated by Trump, it would create a new numbered unit within the Air Force as well as a sub-unified command that would report to Strategic Command.

    Air Force leaders, Defense Secretary James Mattis and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Joseph Dunford have already opposed a similar idea. Last year, they pushed back against a plan to create a separate space corps within the Air Force, warning it would be premature and add burdensome bureaucracy to the service.

    oh good.

    Another Nimrod wants war with God.
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    This will be such important project, once started Mueller or any other FBI investigators obsessed with 'Russia collusion' or 'money-laundering' etc should not be allowed to distract POTUS.

    Perfect way to tie in Bernie Sanders "everyone a government employee." If Star Trek fans weren't such progressives they'd be having orgasims right now.
    Theye have refused their Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

    Theye have erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

    Theye kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies

    Theye have combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution,

    For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

    For cutting off our Trade with parts of the world:

    For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

    For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

    Theye plundered and destroyed the lives of our people.

    Theye are at this time transporting Armies of Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy of a civilized nation.

    Old $#@!ers such as yourself probably watched it as a current weekly series. Young, virile and sexy adult males, such as myself, watched it on the late night analog sci-fi/creature feature channel as a re-run. And grew out of it when we discovered "sex, drugs and rock-n-roll." The "Trekkies?" Their a bit different from you and me.

    I'm also a "space enthusiast" (not a fan of Star Trek though), and this doesn't send a tingle up my leg either.

    The exploration and ultimate economic exploitation of space can only be carried out by private enterprise.

    This...is just paying Boeing obscene amounts of money to shoot horse$#@! into orbit which will later be an obstacle (debris) to real work.

    Pretty sure most of us know that. Which is why I tied it into Bernie Sanders "Government Jobs for all," bull$#@!.

    This is highly debated - some people think star trek is about fascism.

    China men fear my castrated pitt-bull. That's why I haven't seen them on my property. If they can't get past the pit-bull, the non-aggressive, can't hold his licker, hound, then why should I sweat it? Or why should they sweat me? If they would let me know what terminal to pick them up at CLT we might have a fine time together.

    I cant stop laughing... "we’re getting very big in space". Thank you hillary clinton, and the democrat party. The vote against hillary has led us to this freak show, may you all rot in hell.

    This was predicted in the 1980's propaganda cartoon series "StarCom"... to be fair, it was a pretty cool cartoon and I do attribute it to a lot of my interest in space and aviation:
