VP Pence And SecDef Mattis Announce Space Force Plan And The DERP Is YUUGE! [VIDEO]

Yesterday, Vice President Pence, along with Secretary of Defense James Mattis, announced the plan for a new Space Force. One that President Trump has been discussing for months now. To be sure, it’s an ambitious plan. 

There will be an incredible amount of logistics and a massive budget to set this Space Force in motion.

The first step is creating a new U.S. Space Command by the end of the year, which would be led by a four-star general, the way the Pentagon’s Indo-Pacific Command oversees those regions.

The new command would pull space experts from across the armed services, and there would be a separate acquisitions office, dedicated to buying satellites and developing new technology to help the military win wars in space.

Initially, SecDef Mattis was against the idea. However, he’s since changed his mind. I’ve no doubt it’s due to the extensive research at all levels that he and his staff embarked upon.

This was a nice moment during their speeches at the Pentagon.

As Mattis passed the mic off to Pence he turned to shake the Vice President’s hand and whispered “Thank you very much, thanks for being here.”

Pence, not missing a beat said, “I think it was all for you. I really do,” in reference to the thunderous ovation. Mattis quickly replied, “I don’t think so Mr. Vice President, sir.”

But, of course, people and organizations just have to DERP about it.

Planned Parenthood decided to step on a massive rake and hurled themselves into space idiocy while doing so.

Where, oh, where is abortion specifically mentioned as a Constitutional right? Hint: It ISN’T. But that sure didn’t stop Planned Parenthood from acting like clowns now did it?

Well, YES.

Then David Hogg decided to take a time-out from discussing gun control and chime in.

This is a classic case of research before you tweet!

What exactly does this Outer Space treaty say?

  • Bars states from placing weapons of mass destruction on the Moon, stationing them in outer space, or orbiting them around the earth
  • Moon can only be used for peaceful purposes and cannot be used as a testing ground
  • Conventional weapons placement in orbit are NOT prohibited
  • No state or government can claim jurisdiction over the Moon or any planet
  • Space exploration shall be done to benefit all countries

Reading comprehension is not David’s strong suit. If it was he’d realize that the Space Force proposal is for DEFENSE only. Not offense.

Oh, and then Mark Hamill declared himself an expert.

Let’s add George Takei to the mix. Two actors who only play space experts on TV…

But Mueller again!

Oh, wait! Let’s not forget to pivot to Medicare for All!!

Meanwhile, this “journalist” should probably sit this one out.

Remember Dan, your credibility sank like a freaking rock after you were found to have completely manufactured the story regarding President Bush and the National Guard. So your “expertise” on this is no longer needed.

Is the Space Force plan a good idea? Is it workable? Only time will tell. Is it needed as an additional layer of defense? It very well could be.

Will people approach this with solid critical thinking skills. Many will, while the folks listed above will continue to DERP about it just because it was Trump’s idea. It’ll be quite the show I’ve no doubt.

    I haven’t been all that sure that this was needed, or understanding of why current forces can’t do the job, but if Sec Def is on board, so am I. I trust that he would not do anything that would take away from the lethality of our forces, nor support anything that did not increase it. The derping from the left is not surprising, and I long ago stopped giving a shit what actors like the ones above think. “Luke” needs to go back to whining that Vader isn’t his father, and let the adults run things..hogg boy needs to STFU too, since facts are obviously not his strong suit…

      The primary reason for it is to unify the authority, doctrine, and funding for space. As it is right now, each service has its own ideas about space, and seldom the money to make truly interesting things happen (as it’s divided 3 1/2 ways).

    No, this is dumb. Of course the weapons will be available for offense. When bad guys decide to take us on we don’t sit back and wait – we take the fight to them!

    We need to better manage our defense strategy as concerns space, and a Space Force is a way to do that. Though, it really needs to be a new branch, not a conglomeration of bits of the other services. (We’ve already tried that, and it doesn’t work.)
    But, to get to a new service, we require a constitutional amendment or a law (depending on your opinion of the limitations inherent in Constitutional mentions of only an Army and a Navy).

    Oh, btw, we’ve already militarized space. It’s FULL of military satellites that directly support the operational mission.
    (One of the things many of us have been urging for a long time is the “Rods From God” concept – as it’s NOT a WMD, but a very, very effective battlefield weapon, or a penetration weapon for buried bunkers.)

    I think their uniform should be those silver jumpsuits we all (back in the ’50s) thought we would be wearing “in the future.”

  • Russ Wood says:

    A military axiom has always been “to control the high ground”, and space is the highest there is. There’s been lots of SF books and stories about ‘space war’, and Larry Niven’s “Footfall” is a novel of some THING else getting the high ground. Given that, in the book, Earth is still at a 1990’s space level (and today STILL is), Earth takes a punishment. Readable, and the “good guys” eventually win over the alien invaders. Oh, and the “Rods From God” – a real concept, called Project Thor – are used against US.
    Well, at least someone is still thinking about the problems (apart from SF writers and readers, that is).
