Trump floats idea of new military branch: ‘Space Force’

The left is mocking President Trump for floating the idea of a Space Force, but the president could very well be on to something here.

“Space is a war-fighting domain, just like the land, air, and sea,” he told a group of U.S. Marines at Air Station Miramar in southern California yesterday.

“We may even have a Space Force, develop another one, Space Force.” One headline by a progressive publication (not worth mentioning) called the president’s idea “the laughingstock of the galaxy.”

However, the idea of a military Space Corps has been in discussion with lawmakers on Capitol Hill for quite some time — long before the president made these remarks and long before liberals had their chance to knock his idea with a splashy headline.

Alabama representative Mike Rogers has been a leading advocate for a dedicated Space Corps which has been at the heart of several military debates and failed to become law in the Senate.

Listen to the president’s remarks below:

According to the Wall Street Journal, ” Transferring responsibilities to a stand-alone space force would entail the biggest structural shift inside the military since 1947, when the Air Force was created from its predecessor, the Army Air Corps.”

GLENN: So Donald Trump yesterday was in California. And he -- he had a couple things to say. One, a Trump space force. Let's play this cut, please. Here's Donald Trump yesterday.

DONALD: My new national strategy for space recognizes that space is a war fighting domain just like the land, air, and sea. We may even have a space force, develop another one. Space force. We have the Air Force, we'll have the space force. We have the Army, the Navy. You know, I was saying it the other day because 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.

STU: This has actually been going on for -- I mean, it started a long time ago. Mostly in a galaxy far, far away.

GLENN: No, I don't think so. You know, it's weird because he always goes off script. So that space force thing was not written by him. And I think that was written as a response to Vladimir Putin. Oh, you've got that missile? Yeah, we're developing a space force. And I'm not sure if he undercut that or not. But it's interesting that the space force was in his script.

Also, he said something yesterday about the governor of California. Do we have time to play that real quick?

VOICE: Criticism from Governor Brown, that some of this money might be better spent elsewhere.

DONALD: Well, I think Governor Brown has done a very poor job running California. They have the taxes in the United States. The place is totally out of control. You have sanctuary cities, where you have criminals living in the sanctuary cities. And then the mayor of Oakland goes out and notifies when ICE is going in to pick them up. And many of them were criminals with criminal records, and very dangerous people. You would say dangerous people.

No, I think the governor is doing a terrible job running the state of California. And, you know, I have property in California, I will say. I don't think too much of my property anymore. But I have great property in California. The taxes are way, way out of whack.

VOICE: Yeah.

GLENN: So how does this play in California? I would hope that it plays well. People are like, yep. Yep. That's right. But I'm not sure we see the world the same anymore.

Was Dr. Fauci involved in a COVID cover-up?

Released emails between virologist Christian Anderson and Dr. Fauci during early 2020 show Dr. Fauci was aware several, competent doctors believed the COVID virus contained genomes 'inconsistent with expectations from evolutionary theory.' Or, in other words, they didn't believe it simply evolved from a bat. So, then, what changed? And why was Fauci so concerned when a 2012 paper regarding his interest in 'gain of function' research began to circulate online? It's all just speculation for now, but Glenn shares HIS theory: Fauci may have been involved in a major COVID-related coverup…

THIS is why Dr. Fauci’s emails ELIMINATE his credibility

Glenn breaks down the recent Dr. Fauci scandal, explaining WHY his recently released emails are so damning. Not only do his correspondence disprove the theory he was being censored by the Trump administration, but they eliminate any credibility he may have once had on the COVID pandemic, too. Even further: they confirm he lied under oath. The mainstream media may want you to think he's 'Mother Theresa in pants,' but these emails tell a MUCH different story. So, is it finally time to #FireFauci?

LIVE NOW: Golden State Gulag: California's pursuit of Communism is a WARNING for America

California has gone to hell. Homelessness and violence have spiked. Civil liberties and businesses have been destroyed in the name of "COVID safety." Children have been brainwashed with racist critical race theory. And yet, Democrats want to use California as the test model for the entire country. Your state and your town are next. They want their FAILURE to become YOUR FUTURE.

4 QUESTIONS the DHS must answer regarding their domestic ‘terror’ warning

The DHS recently released a rare terror bulletin, warning Americans of an increasing threat: domestic extremists. But if the Biden administration believes there's a grave danger to the American people, WHY are they not providing us with the information we need to protect ourselves? Or is it all due to politics? Glenn has four questions he believes our officials in DC must answer. For example, WHY are the Capitol rioters being treated like prisoners at Guantanamo?
