On May 14, Senator
Ted Cruz (R-TX) gave a speech in support
of Congress moving forward with the creation
of Space Force as a new branch of
the US military.
Cruz gave an intriguing
perspective on what the proposed new military branch would protect
the country from:
Cruz said the following
in his Space Force speech at a hearing of the Senate Subcommittee on
Aviation and Space, which he chairs:
Since the ancient
Greeks first put to sea, nations have recognized the necessity
of naval forces and maintaining a superior capability to protect
waterborne travel and commerce from bad actors.
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.
Cruz's implicit reference
to "space pirates" quickly garnered much internet attention,
particularly on Twitter's "moments" news thread, where tweets of
multiple people mocking him appeared.
Cruz fired back at
Jack Dorsey, creator of Twitter, for not giving equal
coverage to his responses:
Donald Trump's proposed Space
Force is currently being debated in the US Congress which is
considering legislation officially creating it as a new military
branch under the US Air Force.
The Pentagon has come out in support of Space Force being created,

behind the Pentagon getting behind Trump's proposal.
A two stage process was
outlined by the Pentagon on August 9, 2018,
for realizing Trump's goal.
One of the four
components in the first stage was was the elevation of the Air
Force's current Space Command into one of the Pentagon's unified

Legislation for Space Force was submitted to Congress in February by
Secretary Shanahan and is currently being debated in various
congressional committees, including Cruz's. The Space Force
legislation is a major test for whether or not the new military
branch has enough Congressional support to have its creation passed
While the partisan nature of the current Congress makes any passage
of policies proposed by Trump challenging, there is still strong
bipartisan support for policies supported by the Pentagon.
A letter of support from
43 former Pentagon officials is proving to be very influential in
overcoming doubts expressed by members of Congress.
Space Force will,

Shanahan and other Pentagon officials are committed to the creation
of Space Force, it's very likely that Congress will pass the
proposed legislation and authorize its creation.
This finally brings us to Cruz's indirect reference to "space
Was this just
hyperbole for why Space Force is needed?
In his tweet to Dorsey,
Cruz tried to walk back his comment by referring to the capability
of major nations such as China to destroy satellites as his real
However, according to
multiple insider sources, the idea of the US having to defend itself
against space pirates is not as ridiculous as it appears.
There are a number of non-state actors secretly operating in space
that do threaten US national interests, and the planet more
One of these sources is rogue special access programs, which
operate outside of lawful government control.
Former Apollo astronaut
Dr. Edgar Mitchell
confirmed that the sitting head of
intelligence for the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Vice Admiral Tom
Wilson, was denied access in 1997 to an Unacknowledged
Special Access Program (USAP) involving UFOs.
This incident and many others point to rogue USAPs conducting
various advanced aerospace projects that can impact US space
operations and Earth installations.
These USAPs are loosely
controlled by shadowy entities such as
the Deep State, which have their
own distinct globalist agendas that conflict with nationalist
An example of existing rogue operations is given in my new book, the
US Air Force Secret Space Program - Shifting Extraterrestrial
Alliances and Space Force a chapter discusses how the Deep State
MASER equipped satellites to steer Hurricane Irma against
MacDill Air Force Base in retaliation for Air Force Special Ops

general public in support of disclosure.
The conclusion is that
rogue USAPs are a modern day form of space pirates.
We also have the idea of Space Nazis which was
insiders such as William Tompkins who worked for the US Navy
during World War II, and said he was part of a Navy espionage
program that monitored the Nazi's
flying saucer program.
the Germans successfully established a breakaway colony
in Antarctica which became a space
power over the succeeding decades.
According to Tompkins and other insiders, the Germans have
colonies on Mars, Ceres, and elsewhere in Deep Space,
have developed some of the most advanced aerospace technologies
known to humanity.
Given their non-state
status, the breakaway German Antarctic/Mars colonies may also be
considered a modern form of space pirates.
Finally, we have the idea of a transnational corporate network that
has developed its own space fleet that operates outside of any
national or global institutional authority.
According to insiders
such as Corey Goode, the Interplanetary Corporate
Conglomerate has the most advanced spacecraft in existence as a
result of their long-time cooperation with the breakaway German
group in Antarctica.

"Toys" at their disposal.
Given their official non-state status, transnational corporate
entities such as the Interplanetary Corporate Conglomerate may also
be included in the category of space pirates that Cruz was
warning the public about.
As the head of a key Congressional subcommittee dealing with space
affairs, Cruz may have acquired some inside knowledge of these
different non-state actors operating in space outside of any
recognized lawful national or global authority.
The problem of "space pirates" is very real and not just hyperbole.
Whether by design or
accident, Cruz has just pointed out a major reason why
Space Force is being created, and is being fast-tracked into
existence by the Trump administration.
