The New Space Race Will Be Lead By A Space Force

What does a country with over 700 military bases in over 130 countries do next? What could possibly be the last remaining Superpower’s next move having already conquered global dominance through its military might? An expansion, of course. This time the threat is inter-galaxy. Or is it interstellar? I better brush up on my, what use to be considered as Sci-Fi talk, because it looks like I may need to know the lingo now with America, or Earth, getting a Space Force! Yes, a Space Force. Remember our reactions when Newt Gingrich talked about the need for a Mars exploration during a Presidential debate? Well, President Donald Trump’s announcement Monday wasn’t that of expanding space exploration, or even a new mission to hopefully uncover new technology. Nope, the silliness of this administration hit a new laughable level with his revealing of a new “Space Force.”

“We must have American dominance in space,” Trump said during a speech at the National Space Council meeting, held at the White House on Monday.

“I’m hereby directing the Department of Defense to immediately begin the process to establish a space force as the sixth branch of the armed forces.”

“We are going to have the Air Force, and we are going to have the space force,” Trump said. “Separate, but equal. It is going to be something so important.”

“My new national strategy for space recognizes that space is a war-fighting domain, just like the land, air, and sea,” Trump said at the rally. “We may even have a ‘Space Force’ — develop another one. Space Force. We have the Air Force; we’ll have the Space Force.”

Of course, everything with President Trump has to be YUGE and exaggerated, and the recent talks of the Space Force aren’t any different. Giving himself credit as only the “Donald” can, he stated that the idea came to him just recently.

“I was saying it the other day—cause 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. That could be the big, breaking story.”

Ironically, President Trump has already stopped the creation of a Space Force once, yet, now he wants to take credit for the idea. In July of 2017, the House of Representatives passed legislation that would direct the Defense Department to create a “Space Corps” as a new military service, housed within the Air Force. It was President Trump’s Pentagon that was in opposition to the program.

When Heather Wilson, the Air Force Secretary, was brought in and asked about the potential new program, she replied, “The Pentagon is complicated enough… This will make it more complex, add more boxes to the organization chart, and cost more money. If I had more money, I would put it into lethality, not bureaucracy.”

Since the days of President Ronald Reagan’s Star Wars Defense Program, a version of a Space Force has been shuffled around the halls of government. In 2000, a military-reform commission led by Donald Rumsfeld suggested the creation of such a force, but the idea was scrapped after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and the following wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Last year, the House Armed Services Committee approved a measure to create a space corps brought forward by Mike Rogers, a Republican from Alabama, and Jim Cooper, a Democrat from Tennessee.

The proposed space corps would absorb the duties of the U.S. Air Force Space Command, a unit inside the Air Force that supports most of the country’s military operations in space and employs about 36,000 people across more than 130 sites around the world. The division would collect space professionals throughout the government into one place. “The military has not done a good enough job looking after space with all its other distracting priorities,” Cooper told Berman last year. “It’s just not getting the attention it deserves.”

The measure made it into the House’s version of an annual defense bill, but the Senate’s version banned it. The Pentagon stood by in its opposition, which was carried over from the Obama administration. Congress passed their final bill in November with no mention of the space corps. Its most fervent supporters vowed momentum would return, but the idea has mostly fallen out of consideration again.

In a report that was written in April of 1998, by Major Steven R. Looten, it outlines in concrete details the duties and responsibilities, protocol, and the future direction of a Space Force. The title of the report is called, “Space Force 2020” indicating a projected target date for the implementation of such a department.

The report is interesting and telling at the same time. It is complete with charts and tables to help illustrate the objectives leaving no room for speculation as to its intent. This is the future of the United States military and the reason given for the need to rush to dominate this space race, as was the case with the space race with the former Soviet Union in the 1960’s, is, well, dominate. The President said the new branch’s creation will be overseen by General Joseph Dunford, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

There is so much to keep an eye out for concerning the Trump administration, and this latest announcement promises to be one to watch for years to come. Social media already had its fun with the idea of a Space Force. The memes have ranged from Spaceball references to Star Wars characters all chiming in with their whimsical notion of fighting for freedoms, in space! Whatever the future holds for the program one thing is sure. Gross government spending and irresponsible management will be the norm with any new or existing government intervention.

How Safe Are We Seven Years After The Fukushima Disaster?

By: Michael D. Jacobsen
Staff writer at Fighting the Tyranny

The disaster that happened at the Fukushima plant occurred on March 11th, 2011. An 8.9 magnitude earthquake struck Japan, the largest ever recorded. The damage from the earthquake and the resulting tsunami caused enough damage to the Fukushima plant to send its reactors into meltdown.

Millions of tons of contaminated water were spilled into the Pacific Ocean, and over the years much more has entered the ocean by underground water runoff. As of 2017, the flow has been almost entirely contained, yet the contamination went on for years after the initial event. To this day highly radioactive water still leaks into the ocean. While the levels leaking are nowhere near 2011 and the following years level it still presents a danger. So how dangerous is it?

Slow Kill: The Agenda for Population Control

By Michael D. Jacobsen
Staff writer for Fighting the Tyranny

There is no doubt when you look at the Georgia Guidestones, or read about Agenda 21, that population control is one of the highest priorities for the New World Order. In their opinion our planet is overpopulated and they need to take action to kill off most of the population for their goals.

If you are not aware the message of the Guidestones is to maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature. Agenda 21 calls for the elimination of 95% of our population by 2030. In order to do this, of course, that spells bad news for most of the 7.6 billion people that live on our planet. That equates to upwards of 95% of the population today.  Continue reading “Slow Kill: The Agenda for Population Control”

Sophia, Artificial Intelligence, And The New Future Of Currency

We are incrementally and methodically inching towards the technocratic era that Zbigniew Brezinski’s book titled, Between Two Ages, spoke of. The push for transhumanism is in hyper-drive as we try to catch up to the technology that we once only dreamed could exist. In the past, we seemed to control the technology, however, as the boom in artificial intelligence rises we may be the ones chasing the technology in the near future. From virtual clouds that can store what appears to be unlimited data to a new blockchain technology promising to revolutionize our monetary system, we are seeing a massive wave surging mankind into the digital age unlike years prior.

What we used to marvel at as science fiction is now performing out live, in real-time, on stages around the world at high-tech conventions. Investors are mortgaging the farm to jump onboard the latest advancement and growth opportunities that artificial intelligence promises.

CERN And The Anti-Matter

By Michael W. Howell
Staff Writer and Senior Editor at Fighting the Tyranny

Our world is made up of antimatter. We are around it every second of the day. The antimatter is what we can’t see, can’t smell, can’t touch, yet, interact with it in our everyday life. With everything having an opposite, the matter would be that in which we can see, feel, touch, etc.

The scientists at CERN are trying, in essence, to find the glue that holds everything together in its pre-hardened state so to speak. By colliding particles together at near the speed of light at their facility that sits on the Swiss-French border, CERN is hoping to study the possibility of other dimensions and how the Universe came into existence. One key to their research is antimatter. Continue reading “CERN And The Anti-Matter”

CERN: Opening Up A Portal

By Michael W. Howell
Staff Writer and Senior Editor at Fighting the Tyranny

CERN has many faces and many deceptions that leave much to the imagination. They wear two faces. A look they wear in public and a dark face that is the agenda and works of the program. Of the research I have done to date on CERN I can tell you that the mysteries surrounding this project are ritualistic, full of symbolism, and dark in tone and nature. What is CERN’s mascot, or chosen statue just outside of its headquarters? Shiva, the god of destruction. More on that in a bit. And what is the company’s logo? Well, the design has no distinguishing resemblance to link it to CERN but does look like a take on 3 sixes – 666.  I know what you’re thinking, I thought it, too, at first.
