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.

"All the Players Are In Place": Max Lucado On End Times Prophecies

"All the players are in place" for the final End Times prophecies to be fulfilled, pastor Max Lucado tells Glenn on The Glenn Beck Podcast. Israel is a state again, the world is turning against it, and technology is more advanced than it has ever been. So, we must start looking at the world stage through a spiritual lens, not just a political one: "Something is happening here that has never happened in any generation in history."

Do Genesis and Evolution REALLY Contradict? Christian Scientist Explains All 7 Days

For over a century, the debate between Christian creationism and the theory of evolution has divided society. But is there really a definite division between the two? Can you believe in the Genesis creation account AND evolution at the same time? On a recent episode of The Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn sat down with Christian astrophysicist Hugh Ross, who believes Genesis "perfectly follows the scientific method." Hugh takes Glenn through the 6 days of creation day by day and explains the evidence we now have that the story is true. And it starts, just like any honest scientific investigation, with having the right point of view...

Dr. Phil: Trump's ONLY WAY to Win in Deep-Blue Courts

Dr. Phil recently interviewed former president Donald Trump after a jury convicted him on some of the weakest charges many prominent attorneys have ever seen. But the case in New York City was just one of the ones Trump is facing - often in deep-blue regions of the country, including Washington, D.C. So, how can Trump's legal team win when the jury pool overwhelmingly despises Trump? Well, when Dr. Phil sat down on The Glenn Beck Podcast, he told Glenn what he believes the best strategy would be: Put the prosecution on trial. Dr. Phil also explains why he has started a new network, Merit Street Media.
