Trump Announces Plans for the Pentagon to Create a Space Force: President Donald Trump has ordered the Pentagon to begin the creation of a sixth branch of the American Armed Forces to called the "Space Force,” which he envisions as an independent branch of the military, aimed at ensuring American supremacy in space.
Space Force - seriously? Sounds like somebody’s been binge-watching a few too many Star Wars movies over the weekend. Now in Trump’s defense, Ronald Reagan also had a very similar vision. Of course, it turned out he had Alzheimers, but he did have that vision. But let’s get serious here, is Space Force really gonna to be a new branch of the military, or is it actually the working title of new Mel Brooks movie? And now that I think about it, wasn’t “Space Force” canceled mid-season on Showtime last year?
Anyway, just what are we supposed to think about a military space program that’s being proposed by a science denier? This is a guy who looked directly into the sun during a solar eclipse last year without any eye protection. Oh well, I guess someone has to assume the title "Rocket Man” now that Kim Jong-un seems to have taken himself out of the running. Moon-a-Lago - here we come!
There’s one thing we can all agree on, however - nothing promotes world peace quite like militarizing outer space. That said, the President has already instructed Mark Hamill to begin preparation for a big summit on the planet Nibiru for early next year. Now, only two questions remain unanswered - will this new Space Force will be included in Trump’s upcoming military parade, and will Trump be able to fulfill one of his old campaign promises to miners by powering the entire Space Force organization with coal?
