President Donald Trump declared Monday he will move to make a new branch of the military focused solely on space.
"I am hereby directing the Department of Defense and Pentagon to immediately begin the process necessary to establish a space force as the sixth branch of the armed forces," Trump said during a meeting of the National Space Council.
"Our destiny beyond the Earth is not only a matter of national identity but a matter of national security," Trump said.
He floated the idea for the force as a part of his national security strategy on March 13, saying "space is a war-fighting domain, just like the land, air, and sea." The president described then how he had originally coined the term as a joke, while discussing U.S. government spending and private investment in space.
"We have the Air Force, we'll have the space force," Trump said in March.
As it turns out, the space force sounds a lot like the space corps legislation the Trump administration opposed last year.
In the National Defense Authorization Act, the House Armed Services Committee proposed last June the establishment of a space corps, a new branch of the military that would fall under the command of the Air Force. This branch's relationship to the Air Force would be similar to the Marine Corps' ties to the Navy. The space corps would have an area of responsibility that encompasses the vast expanse outside of the Earth's atmosphere.
At the time, the White House, the Air Force as well as Secretary of Defense James Mattis disapproved of creating a sixth branch of the military.
"I oppose the creation of a new military service and additional organizational layers at a time when we are focused on reducing overhead and integrating joint warfighting efforts," Mattis wrote in a letter to the House and Senate armed services committees.
While the legislation passed the House, the space corps bid did not make it into the final defense authorization bill in November.
The addition of a service branch would be the first in 71 years. The Air Force is the nation's youngest branch and was added shortly after World War II.
Hearing of this recent announcement, former Supreme Commander of the Galactic Empire, Darth Vader, immediately volunteered for the position.
What was Anthony Bourdain referring to when he said — just weeks ago — that he had been harassed by Hillary Clinton’s goons when he made the reply, “And it ain’t fun?”
Back in October of 2017, Bourdain made statements regarding Harvey Weinstein, suggesting Hillary Clinton had to know of his history of being a sexual predator. Bourdain’s girlfriend, actress Asia Argento, accused Weinstein of raping her.
The tweet angered Hillary spokesman, Brian Fallon. He took to Twitter to tell Bourdain to “eat a scorpion.” Many other Clinton winged monkeys followed suit.

The document "Weather as a Force Multiplier - Owning the Weather by 2025" created for the United States Air Force by military officials outlines the use of weather for military applications:
Video filmed on May 26, 2018 from Italy shows an unidentified flying object with a lighting tail flying close to the mighty mountains in Bolzano. Adding up the mystery quotient, the UFO which flew across the mountains without emitting any sound whatsoever. Moreover, the object had a bizarre shape, unlike any known military crafts.
This UFO was filmed by a man when he was on holiday in Bolzano Italy, Europe. It was early morning and he was standing on the porch of the hotel he was staying. He noticed an object hovering above the mighty mountains that enclose Bolzano. He decided to film the object since it did not seem to emit any sound at all. The witness filmed the object until it disappeared behind a mountain.
The video soon went viral on the net and has already racked up more than 160,000 views on YouTube. People who watched the video also put forward various theories explaining this mysterious sighting.
A YouTube user named 'MeT L Head' argued that the light in the backside of the craft indicates that the object is using anti-gravity technology.
"The light in the back has to be some sorta propulsion system. Still an anti-gravity object. I'm thinking man-made," commented MeT L Head.
On the other hand, skeptics claim that the object spotted in the video might be a helicopter.
"Looks like a helicopter, which COULD travel inclined like that and may well be unheard at distance with a lot of sounds absorbing mountains about. The light on the back is just a light defracted through moisture," commented Kale Wintermute, another YouTube user.
