Ted Cruz warns a 'Space Force' is needed to prevent Space Pirates

Mod: Tea Nut Ted is a nuttier than a fruitcake, as most earthlings know. But he is also the only U.S. Senator who can comb his hair with his tongue while keeping both eyes upward in a vigilant search for space pirates.

Ted Cruz warns 'Space Force' needed to prevent space pirates (The Hill link): Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said this week that it was important to fund President Trump's proposed "Space Force" in order to prevent possible space pirates.

“Since the ancient Greeks first put to sea, nations have recognized the necessity of naval forces and maintaining a superior capability to protect waterborne travel and commerce from bad actors,” Cruz, the chairman of the subcommittee on aviation and space, said at a hearing Tuesday. “Pirates threaten the open seas, and the same is possible in space. In this same way, I believe we too must now recognize the necessity of a Space Force to defend the nation and to protect space commerce and civil space exploration,” Cruz said.

The Trump administration's current plan to create Space Force would cost more than $2 billion to get off the ground, according to a report from the Congressional Budget Office.

The report found that a Space Force military branch would need 5,400 to 7,800 in new personnel for overhead and management, adding more than $1 billion to the Pentagon's annual costs. Trump proposed creating Space Force within the Air Force, similar to how the Marine Corps operates with the Navy. The Pentagon, however, has said Space Force should exist as its own branch of the military, arguing its necessity is inevitable as China and Russia sharpen their focus on space.

A defense spending bill would give $15 million to study the implementation of Space Force but would not go towards creating it as a branch of the military.

Only Congress can create a new military branch, but Trump has signed off on the set-up of the U.S. Space Command. Lawmakers have demonstrated skepticism over the administration’s Space Force plans, questioning the specifics of the Trump proposal and the need for a new service at all.

  1. This is the gutless fool that put on his knee pads to service Trump after he called his wife a dog. This is what passes for a serious legislator in Texas these days...Just when you think you've hit bottom, some radical right-wing goofball from Hell reminds you that - in fact - as long as the Republic Party exists, there IS no bottom.

    1. I can't believe most senators are senators. As has been established, most people fit for the job don't want to the job, and the ego driven idiots do, so they get it, then we realize they are in charge of making too many decisions which actually affect us, but, we tend to live with that while we go of "to our real jobs".

  6. If Trump was exonerated, why is he continuing to hide everything?

    Mueller testimony to Congress stalled by Executive Privilege claim

    Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s appearance before a House panel has been stalled partly due to discussions on whether the White House’s assertion of executive privilege would limit his testimony, according to people familiar with the matter.

    The House Judiciary Committee and Mr. Mueller’s team have been in negotiations for days about the contours of the special counsel’s eagerly-awaited testimony about his 448-page report on Russian interference in the 2016 election and episodes in which President Trump allegedly sought to influence the investigation.

    Attorney General William Barr released the Mueller report publicly last month with redactions for grand jury and other sensitive material. The House committee then subpoenaed the unredacted version of the report plus the underlying evidence. Last week, the White House asserted executive privilege over the subpoenaed materials.

    Legal questions on how Mr. Trump’s assertion of executive privilege would affect Mr. Mueller’s testimony are central to the continuing negotiations, said the people familiar with the matter. The privilege claim could prevent him from discussing details involving Mr. Trump and his advisers beyond what is in the redacted report, the people added. The Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel is weighing the questions and is expected to provide guidance, officials said.

    Apparently the Progressives do NOT support research and advancements in science, mathematics, aerodynamics, manufacturing and any future growth for Americans.
    Progressives want to stop all planes and do away with farting cows; Green New Deal.
    Progressives believe the world is flat, they are stuck in the past.
    The defending of pirates take on a whole new meaning.
    Democratic Progressives are attempting to rob us of our legally elected President, and now rob us of our future advancements and exploration into the future of space.
