Yep, a ninja smoke cloud. He knows congress will not approve it, but he expects to use it in his campaign of "look, the bad democrats do not approve anything I want, I wanna wall, I wanna spaceship, I wanna nobel prize, waaahhh". Just like reagan's star wars program was not meant to be anything but a publicity stunt. Also, he needs something to distract the media from the NK nothing burger, the muller investigation, the trade wars, his zero tolerance immigration policy and whatever new shitstorm he has planned for this week.

Besides, this makes as much sense as making an United States Submarine Forces, just like the marine already is in charge of those, the air force is already in charge of the X37B and anything space related, no special breakthrough will be obtained with another branch of the military, only more bureaucracy which is funny, weren't the repubs against big government?

I am fairly certain there are treaties against militarization of space, but those are rather old treaties now, made for the Cold War era.

What's the latest on China's space efforts? I've not heard much about it recently. Nor anyone else's that isn't a commercial venture come to think of it.

Good sir or madam, we regretfully inform you that a terrible exchange of words occurred on the last page which was full of foul and demeaning language. For the sake of civil discourse we hereby judged such words to be of ill intent and most uncouth and therefore hath stricken them from the record. We would be most appreciative of people to take the most utter care with their words, lest others be quick to temper and urged to return the favor.

Yours dutifully,

The Lords and Ladies of the Animesuki Staff

The Outer Space Treaty was signed on in 1967, just a year before the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons treaty, so I do not see how "old age" makes them less relevant. Neither of them has an enforcement clause.

None, so an space arms race is something no rational mind would want atm.

Now, let me declare checkmate. Trump has just lost, not because he has some devious opponent, but because he has painted himself in a corner and he somehow expects that by doubling down it will magically make things go his way.

He is doing his best to appeal to his base and immigration is the pillar he grabs like a drunkard that can no longer stand. The thing is that nowadays more and more republicans identify themselves and independents and more independents identify as democrats. So while he thinks his actions are solidifying his base, it is slowly chopping at it.

Now it is only a matter of time before he orders the construction of concentration camps and duplicates the policies that ousted Arpaio from his work. Also, the farmer vote republicans take for granted will flip before the november elections thanks to his trade policies. Add the plummeting stock market and the debt crisis (higher interest rates, stagnant wages and historically high public debt is a cocktail with explosive qualities) will do wonders for all those retirees that depend on it and voted for trump.

Meanwhile, Muller is playing the long game, if the dems recover both chambers of congress, he goes full force and if they do not he makes sure to release any wrongdoing done at the state level so trump can't forgive himself.
