  • National Space Council Urges Congress To Approve Space Force

President Donald Trump's administration has already sent a bill to Congress aimed at establishing a sixth military branch equal in rank to the Army, Navy and Marines during the 2020 fiscal year, starting in October.

Vice President Mike Pence delivers opening remarks during the sixth meeting of the National Space Council, Tuesday, Aug. 20, 2019 at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum's Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, Virginia.

Joseph Maguire, acting director of national intelligence, said during the council's meeting that the NRO will execute such operations "based on a jointly developed playbook and informed by a series of exercises and war games".

"This initiative is going to have a positive impact on our ability to grow the people and capabilities that we're going to need in the future".

The Pentagon will stand up a new combatant command before the end of the month, with the official launch of U.S. Space Command set for August 29. "We understand it. And we're moving out".

Powell may signal future rate cuts, but would they matter?
The next opportunity for the Fed to cut interest rates comes in one month, during the next FOMC meeting on September 18. The differences, in minutes released on Wednesday, come as Donald Trump presses for a one percentage point cut.

The Vice President also took time to recognize the first leader of space command- Air Force Commander John Raymond who was confirmed by the Senate in June. This past February, he formally directed the Pentagon to create the U.S. Space Force be part of the Air Force, similar to how the Marine Corps is part of the Department of the Navy. "That's the next step, and we have to be prepared".

"When it comes to integration of military capabilities, there's actually nobody smarter on the planet, that I know, next to Jay Raymond", David Goldfein, Air Force chief of staff, tells U.S. News in an interview.

The Space Force requires changes to Title X of the US Code in order to be able to organize, train, and equip its members for space operations, Donovan said. The new branch will be in charge of defense operations beyond Earth's atmosphere.

Pence said setting up the command still needs congressional funding and authority, but he said he expects that to happen soon.
