Preparing for War, US House Wants to Create First New Military Branch Since 1947

Anti-Media

Washington, D.C. —There’s currently a push in the halls of Washington D.C., to establish a new branch of the military by 2019, one whose focus would be operations among the stars. Proposed legislation by House representatives would create a “Space Corps” that would serve “as a separate military service within the Department of the Air Force.” It would be the first branch added to the military since 1947 when the Air Force was officially established.

On Tuesday, the top two lawmakers of the Strategic Forces Subcommittee, Representatives Mike Rogers and Jim Cooper, added the legislation to the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). The subcommittee oversees military space operations and works within the umbrella of the House Armed Services Committee.  

“There is bipartisan acknowledgement that the strategic advantages we derive from our national security space systems are eroding,” Rogers and Cooper said in a joint statement. “We are convinced that the Department of Defense is unable to take the measures necessary to address these challenges effectively and decisively, or even recognize the nature and scale of its problems.”

Under the proposed legislation, the Space Corps would serve under the direction of the Air Force much like the Marine Corps serves under the direction of the Navy. But the military branch would have its own chief, equal in rank to that of Chief of Staff of the Air Force. Additionally, the Space Corps head would have a seat on the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

The Air Force itself, however, seems somewhat cool to the congressmen’s idea. At a House Armed Services Committee hearing on the NDAA on Thursday, Air Force spokesman Colonel Patrick Ryder said the United States military should be focusing on coordination:

“We think right now it’s important to take the capabilities and the resources that we have and focus on implementation and integration with the broader force, versus creating a separate service.”

Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson echoed a similar sentiment while speaking to reporters on Capitol Hill on Wednesday:

“The Pentagon is complicated enough. This will make it more complex, add more boxes to the organization chart, and cost more money. And if I had more money, I would put it into lethality, not bureaucracy…I don’t need another chief of staff and another six deputy chiefs of staff.”

The entire House Armed Services Committee will have to approve the subcommittee’s additions to the NDAA before they can go any further. If that happens, the debate will move to the House floor, where the NDAA is expected to be voted on sometime after the Fourth of July.

Whether or not the legislation makes the cut, however, it should be noted that the idea of militarizing space is nothing new for the United States. As Anti-Media has reported, Deputy Defense Secretary Robert Work stated at a conference back in 2015 that space must “be considered a contested operational domain in ways that we haven’t had to think about in the past.”

    Gee…I didn’t know space was a national security issue. Like I always say, the bastards will never let us explore space until they are able to control it. The paranoid f$&ks just can’t let any open freedom slip between their fingers. Just more ways to help them gas us with Chemtrails and HAARP.

    What’s next? Creating a weather control grid around Earth similar to the one in the new natural disaster movie Geostorm that will come out in October?

    Yea, let’s just destroy the Earth now and get it over with. Good idea.

    Unfrigginbelievable…..

    That being the case… slam dunk.

    “Whether or not the legislation makes the cut, however, it should be noted that the idea of militarizing space is nothing new for the United States.”

    And an idea it shall remain.

    Like going to the moon.

    In order to have a Space Corps, wouldn’t you have to have some peoples in space first?

    “We think right now it’s important to take the capabilities and the resources that we have and focus on implementation and integration with the broader force, versus creating a separate service.”

    That sentence tells me they have a Space Corps but they don’t want to refer to it as a Space Corps.
    Like, “We already gots one and we don’t want it to be a separate thingy.”
    If they didn’t already have one, then what would there be to integrate?

    So the movie “Super Troopers” or whatever that outer space army is that fights giant spiders is actually predictive programming? Who woulda thunk it?

    Enough wealth is wasted on war and sheer idiocy to feed the world which would feed itself if so much wealth wasn’t wasted on war and sheer idiocy.

    Maybe the U.S. House does not realize that we’ve been at war since before they
    can remember and if the dumshits aren’t prepared for it yet an alternative to w.w.3 might be to get rid of the fed and the war lobby and prepare for peace. Then again if it weren’t for the aforementioned none of those low level war criminals would be in office. Classis catch 22.
