Why a US Space Force Now?

Can you believe it was only last March 13, 2018, that US President Donald Trump announced his intention to launch a new sixth branch of military service to be called the Space Force? Time flies when you’re draining the swamp.

As covered previously by this writer in an article titled “US Declares Space War,” Trump justified his radical idea with these words:

“My new national strategy for space recognizes that space is a war-fighting domain, just like the land, air, and sea. We have the Air Force, we’ll have the space force.”

Results-driven businessman that he is, a mere three months later, on June 18, 2018, Trump officially directed the Pentagon to create the US Space Force.

Warfare experts like Military Analyst US Lt. Col. Rick Francona (ret.) believe that war in space is inevitable. Francona told CNN why Russia, China, and the US are focused on arming space:

“Space doesn’t dominate one small geographic area – it dominates continents, oceans. Most military thinkers know this is the battle space of the future.”

No matter that Cold War enemies the USSR and the USA signed a UN General Assembly non-armaments agreement to encompass space, much like the international peace-keeping agreement in Antarctica. Known as the Outer Space Treaty, the 1967 global powers pact includes two important specifications:

“First, it contains an undertaking not to place in orbit around the Earth, install on the moon or any other celestial body, or otherwise station in outer space, nuclear or any other weapons of mass destruction.”

No nukes in space sounded like a good idea to world leaders whose fingers were poised perpetually over a big red button marked “LAUNCH” – just in case total annihilation became necessary to protect national sovereignty.

“Second, it limits the use of the moon and other celestial bodies exclusively to peaceful purposes and expressly prohibits their use for establishing military bases, installation, or fortifications; testing weapons of any kind; or conducting military maneuvers.”

The non-military scientific research being conducted in Antarctica was the model for this legal language, no doubt about it. Nations could pursue their own non-militant projects in the frozen southern continent, an effective arrangement that endures today.

But times have changed. Unlike 1967, satellites abound overhead. Just for fun, you can watch 20,000 satellites (both live and dead) orbit the Earth in “a real-time 3D map of man-made objects in Earth orbit brought to life by James Yoder.”

Developed countries depend on those thousands of space-based communications satellites for pretty much everything. Most of us have heard doomsday scenarios of what would happen if an EMP (electromagnetic pulse) shut off power and computers: chaos and societal breakdown rapidly ensue. The CNN article cited above mentioned that “a 2015 report prepared by the US Department of Defense suggested China was developing co-orbital anti-satellite systems to target US space assets.”

At the same time, Futurism reveals that the Russian space agency Roscosmos is building a three-meter laser “cannon” to “destroy some of the space trash orbiting the Earth.”

No one is saying that cleaning up space is a bad idea – after all, even a tiny paint particle can tear a lethal hole in an astronaut’s suit at the high velocities of space orbit – but what is a US president supposed to do when intelligence-gathering agencies report that two powerful global rivals (China and Russia) are going forward with plans to weaponize space, in spite of the 1967 UN Outer Space Treaty?

It doesn’t matter that Russia’s purported motives are eco-friendly and China’s are hostile. Once the US military is involved, the only consideration is total dominance. CBS News published Trump’s justification for breaking the Outer Space Treaty with the formation of a US Space Force:

“My administration is reclaiming America’s heritage as the world’s greatest space-faring nation. The essence of the American character is to explore new horizons and to tame new frontiers. But our destiny, beyond the Earth, is not only a matter of national identity, but a matter of national security.”

That’s right. National security is, once again, being given as the excuse to boldly go where no one has gone before – and destroy anyone who dares follow.


But some analysts hold an alternative viewpoint: many ufologists (researchers into the suppressed UFO/ET phenomenon) are convinced there is plenty of evidence that a US Space Force already exists. Termed the “Secret Space Program,” credible experts like Dr. Michael Salla contend that America has been developing anti-gravity spacecraft and reverse engineering all kinds of alien technology since Nazi scientists were divvied up between the US and USSR after World War II under Project Paperclip.

If the US has actually had a “Secret Service in Space” with trillions of dollars funneled into covert black operations since the 1940s, wouldn’t it make sense to legitimize the enterprise by creating a new overt military Space Force? Then, gradually, the federal government could bring the general public up to date on what is really going on in space, without facing any embarrassing questions like, “Why have you been lying to us for 70 years?”

Trump’s directive to build a US Space Force comes as no surprise to this writer (and many others), coming as it does after recent historical revelations about the Pentagon’s secret extraterrestrial exploration, to give just one example.

Once again, the question must be asked by the formation of America’s sixth military branch: “Is UFO Disclosure Happening Now?”

    Thanks for the great news!

      Maybe if disclosure did happen those of us who’ve had the misfortune of experiencing unexplainable phenomena first hand and as a result have had to suffer scoffing fool’s comments and idiotic opinions would finally get a reprieve.

      First Let’s have Department of Undersea Warfare(Innerspace) !
      Since Trump is intellectually incapable of managing complexity he needs to manage by K.I.S.S.

    it is past time for the USA to be in SPACE. FALLING DEBREE; WEATHER; PROTECTION; RELIEF FOR MAN TRAVEL; DO YOU BELIEVE IT WILL NOT HAPPEN???

    Why is it a “radical” idea – because you say so? I don’t think it’s radical at all. If there is ever an all-out war with China or Russia, you can bet that a major part of it will be fought in space. It’s necessary that we are fully prepared, and the president is making sure that we are.

    …gee….a bigger giant sucking sound than NAFTA
    militarism is draining the blood from citizens to the point of death…..I just wonder how much he plans to make off this “space force” personally

      Open your mind. Donald Trump is not just draining the swamp. The Swamp is the CABAL that seized power and has already funded the Deep Space Program for 6o years at our expense. The CIA and FBI are here to protect the Federal Government from the people. The Shadow governmnet funds it through the black market cocaine and heroin operations and it has been operated since the 1950’s when FBI J. Edgar Hoover ran the puppet Kennedys government with Fake News and Blackmail. THIS IS WHAT OUR PRESIDENT IS DOING when sheeple think of what the swamp might be? Breaking the back of the American Medical Killing Machine will be next… I pray.

    Only if it doesn’t increase the military budget. Shift the obsolete and ineffective parts of the military to space. Hell with the treaty! Put a death star up there that can zap anyone anywhere on the planet!

    the country that controls outer space has the best chance of winning any global war

    Does this mean we will have to now support aliens from space also since I can’t see where our space border is?

    We need to meet the ones who are flying in & out of our atmosphere right now.

    if he’s so gung-ho on this, why don’t we shoot him into outer space????????? lol…….

    Why a space force now?
    Because a trillion dollar annual deficit won’t bankrupt us quickly enough. It took well over two hundred years for the national debt to reach $20,000,000,000. (twenty trillion) The present annual deficit is $1,000,000,000.00. (one trillion) This is money being spent this year above what is being taken in.
    Here’s how to visualize one trillion.
    Let’s say it takes a stack of $1,000.00 bills six inches high to make a million dollars.
    A billion is 1,000 million. Times six inches equals a stack of thousand dollar bills five hundred feet high.
    A trillion is 1,000 billion. So five hundred feet times 1,000 equals a stack of $1,000.00 bills five hundred feet high. Laid on it’s side would stretch along I-4 from Orlando to Tampa.
    The inmates are running the asylum In Government we trust. Maybe trusting God is a good idea after all?
