Pence Details Plan for Creation of Space Force in What Would Be the Sixth Branch of the Military

by Christian Davenport and Dan Lamothe                  August 9, 2018                    (washingtonpost.com)

• On Thursday August 9th, Vice President Pence laid out an ambitious plan to establish a “Space Force” as the sixth branch of the U.S. military as soon as 2020. Pence issued what amounted to a call to arms to preserve the military’s dominance in space. “Just as we’ve done in ages past, the United States will meet the emerging threats on this new battlefield,” Pence said in the Pentagon news conference (see 5:25 minute video below).

• The task of creating a new military department, which would require approval by a reluctant Congress, may require significant new spending and reorganization. The idea of a Space Force is opposed by the Air Force in particular which could lose some of its ‘Space Command’ responsibilities. Deborah James, who served as Air Force secretary in the Obama administration, said Trump’s decision to create a full new department is “a solution in search of a problem.”

• Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said last year that he opposed a new military branch. This week, Mattis said the Pentagon and the White House “are in complete alignment” on the need to view space as a warfighting domain. But he stopped short of endorsing a full-fledged Space Force.

• The first step is to create a new U.S. Space Command led by a four-star general, and pulling space experts from across the armed services. The Pentagon would create an assistant secretary of defense for space, a top-level civilian who will report to the defense secretary “to oversee the growth and expansion of the sixth branch of service.” There would be a separate acquisitions office dedicated to buying satellites and developing new technology. The White House intends to work with lawmakers to introduce legislation by early next year.

• Space is vital to the way the United States wages war. The Pentagon’s satellites are used for missile defense warnings, guiding precision munitions and providing communications and reconnaissance. Russia and China have made significant advancements, challenging the United States’ assets in space.

• Pence said to the military brass attending the press conference, the “commander in chief is going to continue to work tirelessly toward this goal, and we expect you all to do the same.” After the announcement Thursday, members of the House Armed Services Committee Reps. Mike D. Rogers (R-Ala.) and Jim Cooper (D-Tenn.) praised the move, saying, “We have been warning for years of the need to protect our space assets and to develop more capable space systems.” President Trump tweeted, “Space Force all the way!”

 

Vice President Pence laid out an ambitious plan Thursday that would begin creating a military command dedicated to space and establish a “Space Force” as the sixth branch of the U.S. military as soon as 2020, the first since the Air Force was formed shortly after World War II.

Pence warned of the advancements that potential adversaries are making and issued what amounted to a call to arms to preserve the military’s dominance in space.

“Just as we’ve done in ages past, the United States will meet the emerging threats on this new battlefield,” he said in a speech at the Pentagon. “The time has come to establish the United States Space Force.”

But the monumental task of standing up a new military department, which would require approval by a Congress that shelved the idea last year, may require significant new spending and a reorganization of the largest bureaucracy in the world. And the idea has already run into fierce opposition inside and outside the Pentagon, particularly from the Air Force, which could lose some of its responsibilities.

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said last year that he opposed a new department of the military “at a time when we are focused on reducing overhead and integrating joint warfighting functions.”

This week, Mattis said the Pentagon and the White House “are in complete alignment” on the need to view space as a warfighting domain. But he stopped short of endorsing a full-fledged Space Force. In a briefing with reporters after Pence’s speech, Deputy Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan suggested that Mattis’s comments opposing the Space Force were made at a different time, before the Pentagon received a bolstered budget.

White House officials have been working with national security leaders to aggressively move ahead without Congress. 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.

After the announcement Thursday, President Trump tweeted, “Space Force all the way!”

U.S. Soldier Claims to Have Shot & Killed A 12-Foot Giant in Afghanistan

by Richard Enos                June 22, 2018               (collective-evolution.com)

• In 2002 in a remote area of Afghanistan, a U.S. military patrol was searching for a missing patrol and came upon a cave in the side of a mountain with bones scattered around the entrance along with a piece of our communications equipment. Suddenly a man emerged from the cave, standing 12 to 15 feet tall. He had a red beard, long red hair, fair complexion, six fingers on each hand, six toes on each foot, and two rows of teeth. A member of the patrol ran at him and began to shoot. The giant skewed the trooper on a pike as the others continued to shoot and kill the giant.

• A helicopter was sent and the soldiers were told to bundle the giant up in cargo netting, and the helicopter carried the giant away. When the patrol had submitted their after-action report, they were told to re-write it removing any mention of a giant.

• Other soldiers at the base began to hear rumors of a man being killed that was three times the height of an ordinary human. Paranormal researcher L.A. Marzulli corroborated the account with two soldiers, and Afghan locals told stories of cannibalistic giants living in nearby caves. Of course, the U.S. Department of Defense denies any incident involving a giant in Afghanistan.

• George Noory interviewed the helicopter pilot that transported the “Kandahar Giant” on Coast to Coast radio. The pilot said it was a dead guy “about 9 by 12 feet… laying in a fetal position on the pallet. He was around an 1100 pound guy.” The pilot went on to corroborate that the giant was fair-skinned, red-haired, and had extra digits on his hands and feet.

• Native Americans recount ancient stories of a cannibalistic, red-haired race of giants that once inhabited North America. According to legend, the American native tribes banded together, chased the giants into their cave dwellings and set a fire to the entrance, burning or suffocating all of the giants.

• David Wilcock and Corey Goode claim that red-haired giants have been found in stasis, or suspended animation, in full battle regalia ready to resume their role on Earth at the appointed time.

• It seems that those in power are trying their best to keep anyone from finding out that human history is very different from the long and slow model of human evolution, absent any intervention by another species, as advocated by the Darwinian model. Confirming the existence of a non-human species here on Earth would have people demanding the truth about our history and our place in this universe alongside other intelligent species.

 

In 2002 a U. S. patrol had gone missing in a very remote area of Afghanistan. Another patrol was dispatched on a search and rescue mission, and one soldier on that patrol described what he saw after coming around the side of a mountain:

As we bent around this corner you could see the opening of the cave. And then I see a lot of rocks which is another oddity. And then bone matter. I’m not close enough to identify what kind of bones but I did see what I knew to be a piece of our communications equipment. So instantly we’re thinking ‘ambush,’ maybe animal, you know, could be anything. There was enough room in front of the cave, but it had a sheer drop-off; but there was enough room that we got into a decent dispersal in case of ambush.
Not long after they had gotten into that dispersal formation, they saw something emerge from the cave that, despite their preparedness, caught them fully off guard.

         depiction of Kandahar Giant

“It was a man at least 12 to 15 feet in height. This is a MONSTER. Red beard, with his hair–was longish, past his shoulders, a scarlet red. And Dan runs at him and starts shooting, which broke all of us into the reality–because it was surreal.”

“While Dan is moving at him, another bro of mine is laying down fire and I start firing. He skewers Dan–he’s now got him on this ‘pike.’ It went through him. He’s got him and he’s coming after more. We all just clicked in. I don’t know what it was, but I remember we were all like, ‘Shoot him in the face, shoot him in the face!’ He’s taking multiple hits, and he’s still moving.”

Eventually, the giant was killed. Dan had been killed as well. And the patrol unit was soon visited by a helicopter that dropped some cargo netting. They were told they had to bundle up the giant in the netting, and soon after they were done, a larger helicopter came by, dropped a hook, and the giant was carried off.

The soldier confirmed that the red-haired, fair-skinned giant had six fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot. After they had submitted their after-action report, the soldier recounts that they were told by their top brass to re-write it in a particular fashion, presumably to remove any mention of a giant being.

Corroborating Testimony

Although not an eyewitness, another special ops soldier in Afghanistan provides the following corroborating testimony: “We would come back to the base and started hearing this rumor about a unit that killed this, what they started calling this really tall person. At first I didn’t think anything of it, then come to find out that the person they killed was actually three times the size of a man, had extra digits on their hands, and extra digits on their feet, and had red hair, and a special unit had come in and wanted this target.”

“Well we’d heard that they killed this thing inside a cave, or the mouth of a cave, and there was common knowledge among the military to hear this. When you first hear, you’re thinking like, this has got to be a joke. This has got to be a hoax. Then after things go down a certain way, and you keep hearing it, you start to realize it’s not a joke.”

U.S. to ‘Stage Alien Invasion to Gain World Power’

by Sean Martin              March 5, 2018               (express.co.uk)

• Is the release of the existence of the cigar-shaped “asteroid” Oumuamua and the NY Times article on the $22M Pentagon program to investigate UFOs part of a deep state/NASA plan to create public panic as a prelude to a staged alien invasion in what would be the largest ‘false flag’ event since 9/11?

• Ufologist Dr Steven Greer says that it may be “a pretext to justify [the U.S. military’s] existence and get the world to eventually spend huge sums of money on a perceived if contrived threat from space.”

• Or could it be part of a deep state contingency plan to dominate the U.S. military in order to marginalize President Trump?

[Editor’s Note] See a December 24, 2017 article by Dr Michael Salla speculating on the reasons for the government’s revealing the existence of a Pentagon UFO program and a U.S. Navy video of a ‘pill shaped’ UFO in a December NY Times article, and the ‘To The Stars Academy’ who facilitated the release of this information. Says Dr Salla: “I’m sure major U.S. defense contractors are salivating at the prospect of building fleets of armed anti-gravity spacecraft to respond to a contrived… threat to U.S. national security through a secret space program.”

 

Conspiracy theorists have claimed the authorities in the US are working in conjunction with space agency NASA and media organisations to create panic, before staging an alien invasion to get a tighter grip on the public.

UFO hunters state that the theory began with a New York Times article last year which revealed the existence of a $22 million Pentagon program that investigates UFOs.

Around the same time, scientists announced a cigar-shaped asteroid had entered our solar system – the first time an interstellar object had been detected in our galactic neighbourhood.

Retired physician Steven Greer: “Strictly speaking, the militarists and war-mongers, itching to ‘kick some alien butt’ as it was said in the movie Independence Day, may actually only want a pretext to justify their existence and get the world to eventually spend huge sums of money on a perceived if contrived threat from space.”

Return of Kings conspiracy website wrote: “As utterly insane as it sounds, it seems possible that the US Government is preparing to try to convince the world that there is an alien invasion about to happen, in the largest ‘false flag’ since 9/11.
