Pentagon, Losing to China in Space, Creates UFO Task Force
Finally we've got ourselves a San Francisco military level whose priorities are...
1. Gender identities
2. Woke politics
3. Stamping out racism
4. New Age nuttery
Since the DOD was lagging in the fourth category, it's going to work on that department.
The Defense Department has announced a new UFO task force to help the U.S. government spot and identify unknown objects in the air and determine whether they pose any threats.
The agency announced on Tuesday it is creating the Airborne Object Identification and Management Synchronization Group (AOIMSG) to "synchronize" Washington's efforts to "detect, identify and attribute objects of interests in Special Use Airspace," and "assess and mitigate any associated threats to safety of flight and national security."
An Airborne Object Identification and Management Executive Council, comprised of defense and intelligence officials, will oversee the new task force.
"Incursions by any airborne object into our [Special Use Airspace] pose safety of flight and operations security concerns, and may pose national security challenges," the Department of Defense said in a press release. "DOD takes reports of incursions — by any airborne object, identified or unidentified — very seriously, and investigates each one."
Good thing they're taking it seriously. We wouldn't want UFOs to be taken unseriously. Meanwhile China is taking hypersonic weapons seriously.
American hypersonic missile capabilities are "not as advanced" as those of China or Russia, Space Force General David Thompson said Saturday at the Halifax International Security Forum in Canada, signaling that the U.S. is behind in developing the newest and most cutting-edge weaponry.
Thompson admitted during an interview that the U.S. lagging behind the other two countries is potentially dangerous for national security.
"We have catching up to do very quickly, the Chinese have an incredible hypersonic program," he said. "It's a very concerning development ... it greatly complicates the strategic warning problem."
The Chinese don't have woke quotas, a fight against racism, or a UFO office. Their military spends all its time trying to figure out how to win wars. Crazy, right?
Beyond giving the Never Trumpers at Hotair something to blog about, UFOs have been the special obsession of a chunk of the Democrat donor and political class.
58% of Democrats believe in UFOs, but only 32% are proud to be American. Only 37% of Republicans believe in flying saucers, but a full 80% are proud of their country.
Almost twice as many Democrats are willing to believe in being abducted by space aliens than in their country. Hillary Clinton had promised that if elected, she would find out the truth about the little green men and suggested that the planet had already been visited by aliens.
“Maybe we could have, like, a task force to go to Area 51,” she suggested.
The chair of Hillary Clinton’s campaign, John Podesta, an obsessive UFO buff, appeared on an episode of Ancient Aliens which claimed that Hillary Clinton was defeated to suppress the truth about space aliens.
Like Podesta, the Democrat (space rather than illegal) alien obsession dates back to Bill’s era. When Bill Clinton appointed Webster Hubbell as his Associate Attorney General, he gave him two priorities.
“If I put you over at Justice I want you to find the answers to two questions for me,” Hubbell recalled. “One, who killed JFK. And two, are there UFOs.”
Hubbell didn’t find any UFOs, but he had to resign after only serving a year and was sent to jail for fraud.
There's lots more. Suffice it to say that this brand of nuttery runs rampant in Dem circles. And that the same media which goes wild when a dozen crazies show up in Dallas expecting JFK Jr. or whoever to return from the dead, has no special interest in discussing the fact that the Dems are diverting military resources from the struggle against China to chase their own brand of crazy.
