          Space Force: Trump Wants A

          'space-based missile defense layer'

          Steve Carell & Netflix Beat Him To It

          President Donald Trump’s proposed space force may debut on Netflix before it actually makes it into space.

          By Ray Cunneff

          January 17, 2019

          As he unveiled a revamped missile defense plan at the Pentagon today, President Donald Trump said that the United States is prepared to make use of space as a potential battleground. "My upcoming budget will invest in a space-based missile defense layer," Trump announced, and it is "ultimately going to be a very, very big part of our defense – and, obviously, of our offense."

          The Trump White House directed the Pentagon to create a Space Command in December, which was proclaimed as a "significant step toward the administration's ultimate goal of establishing a department known as the Space Force that would become the first new branch of the Armed Services since the Air Force was created in 1947."

          With neither budget nor details, and in violation of international treaties barring the militarization of space, Trump again talked of developing a "space force" as a new branch of the military, saying that "we will recognize that space is a new war fighting domain with the space force leading the way."

          But while Trump's star wars plans remain largely imaginary, it was also announced yesterday that comic-actor Steve Carell will be starring in an upcoming Netflix series about the new Space Force that's being described as a "workplace comedy."

          According to Variety, Carell has re-teamed with his former "The Office" producer Greg Daniels for the new series, which was teased in a short "coming soon" video from Netflix released Wednesday.

          The promo announced: "The goal of the new branch is 'to defend satellites from attack' and 'perform other space-related tasks. ...Or something."

          It added: "This is the story of the men and women who have to figure it out."

          Carell, it turns out, has some recent experience with such material...

              Probably not!


              (I love Ashley Feinberg)

              And is there any situation at all in which you would decide to delete the site?

              Now I remember why I unfollowed you! Because that’s all you DM me, “delete the site.”W

              Well that’s ... Maybe half the time.

              But how is that going to help?T

              hat’s the question, though. Is there a situation where you would just decide that it’s better to be free of this?

              Should we just delete all the negative things in there you saying Twitter is a negative thing?

              Well that’s what you’re assuming when you say that.

              Not necessarily.

              What would you use if we deleted it?

              I don’t know, I’d have a lot more time on my hands.

              Whatbwould you do with that time?

              I really can’t even begin to imagine.

              I just ... I don’t think it’s constructive. I’d rather hear constructive ideas on what we could fix. We get a lot of complaints. We get a lot of issues, and they’re all coming from a good place of good intent. But we have to dig under and figure out what the patterns are that we need to prioritize and fix. Because we can only do so much at once. So when somebody constantly tells me, “delete the site,” it’s just not helpful. Whereas other folks tell me, “Hey, you know if you do this one thing you would just have a massive impact.”

              Well deleting the site would have a massive impact — but that’s fine, we can agree to disagree. I know we’re running out of time, but I just have two more questions. I know there was a report recently that you mailed some of your beard hair to Azealia Banks. Did that happen?

              No

              You didn’t?

              No.

                  the shutdown will go past the State of the Union, right?

                  Not by our leadership. Not by the GOP. Not by the President.

                  Not okay. Not helpful. Not defendable. Only demeaning and further loss of confidence inducing to federal workers and their families. Signalling to any base that extending the shut down past the State of the Union is envisioned by them and permissable. The only talk should be - what ends the shutdown today.

                  Really - call federal workers in and tell them - what ends it today. They deserve to know. Not what excuse is being signalled to extend this beyond the State of the Union - just because....

                  Cohen Hired IT Firm To Rig Early CNBC, Drudge Polls To Favor Trump

                      "In his Trump Organization office, Mr. Cohen surprised the man, John Gauger, by giving him both a blue Walmart bag containing between $12,000 and $13,000 in cash and, randomly, a boxing glove that Mr. Cohen said had been worn by a Brazilian mixed-martial arts fighter, Mr. Gauger said.

                      Mr. Cohen disputed that he handed over a bag of cash. “All monies paid to Mr. Gauger were by check,” he said, offering no further comment on his ties to the consultant.

                      Mr. Gauger owns RedFinch Solutions LLC and is chief information officer at Liberty University in Virginia, where Jerry Falwell Jr., an evangelical leader and fervent Trump supporter, is president."

                          Oh boy. Just what Trump needs. An insider's view of Trump and his merry band of grifters. Trump isn't going to like this one bit. Get your popcorn ready, the fireworks coming from the publication of this book should be spectacular.

                          He [Christie] adds that the president “trusts people he shouldn’t, including some of the people who are closest to him," and is surrounded by “amateurs, grifters, weaklings, convicted and unconvicted felons.”

                          Great timing with a Trump selected choice for Attorney General.

                          Just a note. Do not purchase the book when it comes out. Either get from your local library or wait a few weeks and then buy it when it hits the remainder/overstock table and your local bookstore for a pittance of the original price.
