While the legacy media may rant and rave about former President Donald Trump with abandon, the reality is that his polices continue to reign on, whether the screeching leftists like it or not.
One such policy includes his establishment of the Space Force, which was widely derided by the moronic media when Trump first announced the establishment of the new department.
However, while the media mocked Trump for allegedly weaponizing space, which was hardly his intent, the Pentagon apparently thinks Trump had a point, as evidenced by the recent details regarding one of Biden’s many budgets.
Specifically, the Biden administration requested an increase in funding for the Department of Defense for 2024: $842B.
This figure not only constitutes a $26B increase over the fiscal 2023 budget, but also a $100B increase over 2022.
That’s quite the amplification in DoD funding, and rather concerning considering the increasingly weaponized department failed another audit test just a few months ago.
The fifth in a row, to be exact.
Of course, Biden would want to increase funding to a department that is routinely audited, and despite routine failure, it continues to receive copious amounts of taxpayer sums.
Nonetheless, part of the funding will be allocated to the Space Force, and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin issued a lengthy statement regarding the large amount of DoD funding in general.
“This is a strategy-informed budget, based on priorities outlined in the 2022 National Defense Strategy. The budget prioritizes resources for critical investments enabling the Department to continue implementation of the National Defense Strategy, including building the right mix of capabilities to defending against current and future threats,” Austin intoned.
Shame that the Biden administration, alongside vigilant leftists in general, constitute both “current and future threats.”
Austin also admitted that the large increase in funding may also be attributed to China’s continued relentlessness in varied innovations, which would include the space sphere.
“The President’s budget request provides the resources necessary to address the pacing challenge from the People’s Republic of China, address advanced and persistent threats, accelerate innovation and modernization, and ensure operational resiliency amidst our changing climate,” Austin added.
Shame that the “changing climate” also includes a president who has been rather obviously compromised by China, especially after Hunter’s art dealer recently stymied cooperation with the government over information related to the Bidens’ potential family ties to China.
Such stonewalling does lead one to wonder how much of Biden’s commentary is sincere and how much is simply bluster.
China, on the other hand, is sailing right ahead, as evidenced by the “Science of Military Strategy,” which was released in 2020.
“Space has already become a new domain of modern military struggle; it is a critical factor for deciding military transformation; and it has an extremely important influence on the evolution of future form-states, modes, and rules of war. Therefore, following with interest the military struggle circumstance of space and strengthening the study of the space military struggle problem is a very important topic we are currently facing,” the report trilled.
Two years later, the Biden administration admits that space is indeed a real concern, just as Trump always knew it was.
Which is especially evident in “Challenges to Security in Space,” a DIA report that detailed a host of threats facing the United States due to adversaries’ intense focus on space exploration and exploiting the varied opportunities available.
“Since early 2019, competitor space operations have also increased in pace and scope worldwide, China’s and Russia’s counterspace developments continue to mature, global space services proliferate, and orbital congestion has increased,” the DIA intoned.
Real shame that the DoD has been so obsessed with “diversity training,” otherwise known as people playing along with the monstrously militant transgender agenda.
Something suggests that the right pronouns won’t be the best way to defeat the Russians and Chinese in space, however.
