Democrats must undo absolutely everything championed by Trump . . . no matter how good the action nor how detrimental its loss
Of all the orders and actions taken by former President Donald Trump, arguably the most popular with the American public was the creation of the U.S. Space Force as the sixth branch of the military.
But, of course, Democrats must undo absolutely everything championed by Trump . . . no matter how good the action was for this nation nor how detrimental its loss will be. Therefore, a California congressman had just introduced a bill to abolish the U.S. Space Force.
A North Bay congressman has introduced a bill to abolish the U.S. Space Force, a day after the newest branch of the military unveiled new uniform prototypes.
Rep. Jared Huffman (D-San Rafael) introduced the No Militarization of Space Act as Congress moves to pass the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), the annual bill that authorizes funding for the Pentagon.
The nuttiest progressives in Congress are super-exited about this move, which would return U.S. Space Force operations back the the U.S. Air Force.
The No Militarization of Space Act comes as Congress moves to pass the National Defense Authorization Act, which funds the Pentagon.
Huffman was joined by representatives Mark Pocan, Jesús “Chuy” García, Rashida Tlaib and Maxine Waters in introducing the legislation, which is endorsed by Taxpayers for Common Sense, National Taxpayers Union, Peace Action, R Street Institute and Demand Progress.
“It’s time we turn our attention back to where it belongs: addressing urgent domestic and international priorities like battling COVID-19, climate change and growing economic inequality,” Huffman said. “Our mission must be to support the American people, not spend billions on the militarization of space.” ”
The good news is that this move appears to be a political stunt.
Colorado Springs Republican U.S. Rep. Doug Lamborn bristled at the introduction of the bill to kill the Space Force, which came after it was rejected as an amendment to a wider Pentagon measure.
“This is an frivolous bill that has no hope of passing,” Lamborn said in an email. “The creation of the Space Force was a bipartisan effort from the beginning. This reorganization of our national security space enterprise resulted from the belated recognition of space as a warfighting domain and the increasing threat to critical space assets posed by our near-peer competitors.”
The measure would have to gain traction to pass the House, where the Space Force has had support from both sides of the aisle. Even if the House backed it, the measure would face almost certain defeat in the Senate, where Democrats hold control by the narrowest of margins and the space service has had bipartisan backing.
Given the popularity of the U.S. Space Force among voters, GOP hopefuls certainly now have a target of opportunity and can pounce most vigorously on Democratic opponents in the upcoming congressional races.
The country that controls space controls the universe, just as China is controlling the world. Giving the keys to China/Russia….just peachy!!
