$8 Billion Price Tag on Space Force Causes Concerns over National Spending - Surprise! You Already Bought It!

It seems that many members of the truth community are already privy to the idea that the country (along with the rest of the planet) already has a space force. Thanks to the testimony of several brave whistleblowers, many of the people are already aware of the potential for advanced developments in outer space. Yet even as we see the unveiling of new and unheard-of technologies, it is important to remember that even in disclosure, things are not always as they appear.

The idea of a military presence in space may be new to some citizens. These people would likely also be unaware of the massive cost of creating and maintaining off-world military operations. If this is the case, what better way to disclose the financial cost than to report disagreements between political figures as to whether or not such an endeavor is even possible?

By now, many of us already know the likelihood that disclosure efforts are being made to unveil technological developments which are reported to have been achieved over half a century ago.

When President Trump first announced the idea of a military presence in outer space, the gesture may have helped to prime the collective imagination of the entire country. When the announcement was made that the plan was not only in full force, but that it was going to advance surprisingly fast, this further helped to expand the image of advanced space projects in the minds of audience members.

As these announcements of financial spending are addressed, the American public will further gain the understanding of what an extended space program might cost.

It is unknown as to what the reaction of the public will be when they find out that all of these developments have already been accomplished, and that the people are the ones who were made to pay the bill. It is not very often that a population is robbed so excessively in this way, so naturally, the question is likely on the minds of those who are said to be pacing the disclosure process.

Hopefully, these revelations will occur after the public is able to benefit from the advanced technologies these programs have developed over the decades. According to whistleblower testimony, this has been the plan for a good while.

VP Pence Unveils Trump's Space Force; Will Cost $8 Billion over 5 Years

Back in March, President Trump first introduced the idea of a US "space force", renewing a long-running debate that began almost 20 years ago whether the Pentagon’s space activities should be moved to a new command. Then in June, Trump explicitly called for the new branch to be created, despite resistance from the Air Force which oversees military space programs.

Fast forward to today, when Vice President Mike Pence announced the first steps in the creation of a space force as a entirely new military branch.

Speaking alongside Defense Secretary James Mattis at the Pentagon Thursday, Pence announced that "establishing the Space Force is an idea whose time has come."

And while big questions remain - while the Pentagon has begun the process of establishing Space Force as a 6th branch of the U.S. military, only Congress has the power to establish a new branch of the military - one thing is clear: Trump's reorganization of US defense will cost a lot of money, and for the first time we learned just how much when Mike Pence said that the Trump administration will call on Congress to allocate $8 billion over the next five years to establish the U.S. Space Force as the sixth branch of the military.

"It’s not enough to have an American presence in space," Pence said. "We must have American dominance in space. And so we will."

"Our adversaries have transformed space into a war fighting domain already and the United States will not shrink from this challenge," Pence said. "History proves that peace only comes through strength, and in the realm of outer space, the United States space force will be that strength in the years ahead," he added.

Today there are "tens of thousands of military personnel, civilians and contractors operating and supporting our space systems, together they are the eyes and ears of America’s warfighters around the globe", Pence said.

Trump approved:

The first step in the creation of Trump's space force calls for the creation of U.S. Space Command, led by a four-star flag officer. The second step is the creation of an "elite group of joint warfighters specializing in the domain of space."

The report also calls for a Space Development Agency to develop new technologies, and establishing a new civilian position to oversee the standup of Space Force - an assistant secretary of defense for space.

Curiously, while Secretary of Defense James Mattis previously disapproved of the idea saying last year he opposed creating additional bureaucracy at the Pentagon, on Thursday Mattis - perhaps impressed with all those billions that would be collected from taxpayers - changed his mind and said "space is one of our vital national interests" and is "no longer a new domain."

Still, a major hurdle remains as Congress would have to approve a new military service, and lawmakers have been divided on the idea. The new branch would need to compete for money with other big, politically protected Defense Department priorities that Congress already funds. However, as Pence said today, the administration is already working with Congress to get approval for the Space Force service branch, including Reps. Thornberry, Smith, Rogers, Cooper, and will ask for authorization in FY20 NDAA.

What is strange is that the U.S. already has a space-based military footprint as Bloomberg notes:

The sky is teeming with spy satellites and other platforms that support government surveillance, communications, weather forecasting and other activities. The Air Force also has a top-secret aircraft, the X-37B, built by Boeing Co., which orbits the earth for extended periods.

But why spend less, when one can spend more?

As Bloomberg further adds, the primary driver behind the push to formalize a space branch of the U.S. armed forces is motivated by space investment by Russia and China. In 2007, China fired a missile to destroy an aged weather satellite, demonstrating in a dramatic fashion its ability to deploy anti-satellite weapons.

For those curious, following Mattis' speech the DoD is expected to release a report to Congress on the creation of a separate Space Force.

Predictably, it did not take long for the Democrats to lash out at the idea. Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) on Thursday blasted the Trump administration's commitment to a space force, and suggested its only moving forward because Republicans won't speak out against it.
