Ted Cruz:

"Pirates threaten the open seas, and the same is possible in space. In this same way, I believe we, too, must now recognize the necessity of a space force to defend the nation and to protect space commerce and civil space exploration."

Space pirates.   oh dear.

Yeah, he should have said enemies of the U.S. are militarizing space, seizing the high ground.

Um .. he didn't say "space pirates," you did.

I agree with the military analysis that any future conflict will start in space.  Satellites provide endless intelligence.  We will try to take out our enemies satellites and they will try to take out ours as any first battle.

That said, I don't know if it's best a separate force or not.  But this frankly is pretty silly, Cruz was right

Last night, South Bend mayor and 2020 Dem candidate Pete Buttigieg blasted Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham during his Fox News town hall in Claremont, New Hampshire:

"When you’ve got Tucker Carlson saying that immigrants make America dirty - when you’ve got Laura Ingraham comparing detention centers with children in cages to summer camps - there's a reason why anybody has to swallow hard and think twice before participating in this media ecosystem."

“Wow - - a standing ovation.” said stunned (Fox News) host Chris Wallace

edit:

I totally effed up and put this post in the wrong thread.  Embarrassed I meant to post it here:

Dozens Of Democrat Candidates Already - Many More To Come

Governments will always devise ways to deprive an honest man of his money or property, and claim that it's legal.

Yes, and of course those quotes are lies.  Democrats know those quotes don't mean what they said, which is why they do the misquote to change the meaning.  If they didn't know it didn't mean what they said, they wouldn't know they need to misquote them

Does President Trump believe that the USA Armed Forces must have at least one million aerospace planes given that the USA Armed Forces is practically a military?

I think he Tweeted something to that effect, but as I remember it, it was at least one billion aerospace planes and he's negotiated a volume discount from Boeing and promised them bigger subsidies. Cheesy
