Donald Trump Announces Plan To Establish US Space Force

“I am hereby directing the Department of Defense and Pentagon to immediately begin the process necessary to establish a Space Force as the sixth branch of the armed forces.”

US President Donald Trump has announced the creation of a sixth branch of the US Military.

In remarks on Monday, Trump said “I am hereby directing the Department of Defense and Pentagon to immediately begin the process necessary to establish a Space Force as the sixth branch of the armed forces. Our destiny beyond the Earth is not only a matter of national identity but a matter of national security.” 

As noted by CNBC, the creation of a Space Force would be the first new branch of the US Military in 71 years.

Trump has said, “space is a war-fighting domain, just like the land, air, and sea.”

The move to create a Space Force comes as China has been increasing their investment in militarizing space, including the ability to take out the satellites that are so essential to coordinating military operations and managing communication around the globe.

Space is the next frontier in military combat, and it was only a matter of time before the world’s top military powers started focusing more military effort in that area.

What a country unifying speech, the USA moving ahead once more, that would make me a proud American if I was American. Think of the jobs, the advancement, the relearning process started up again, while that country is advancing together. President Trump is making America strong again, too bad the Democrats are trying to control and hold the Americans back, like our Lieberals/NDP do here in Canada, just for the globalists agenda.

OMG as if NASA and other space / technology based corporations haven’t been sucking the money out of everyone for many decades. If only folks would realize NASA is not what they think and the military industrial complex is another form of funneling money away from the taxpayers, with zero accountability into black projects. Nothing good will ever come of this and don’t ever believe what they are telling you. Trump is part of the big problem and is now their puppet OR he is a very stupid person.

EMP (Electro Magnetic Pulse) a waveform that will destroy electronics but more importantly entire electrical grid systems (transformer stations) all across the U.S and Canada. An EMP attack would shut down entire cities. Dr. Peter Vincent Pry, Executive Dir. of the EMP Task Force on National Homeland Security has been warning both the U.S. & Canadian governments for years if attached to a missile warhead sent above the atmosphere of the earth, in the wrong enemy hands such as Iran, China, Russia and North Korea it would be devastating. North Korea already threatened to launch EMP strikes last Sept 2017.… Read more »
