The Republican Congress wants to create a 5th branch of the US Military, dubbed the “Space Corps” under the Air Force’s umbrella. The proposal for the Space Corp was included in the House’s National Defense Authorization Act. The Space Corp would be a separate military branch that’s housed within the Air Force.

“The Pentagon is complicated enough. This will make it more complex, add more boxes to the organization chart and cost more money,” said Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson. “If I had more money, I would put it into lethality, not bureaucracy.”

When the Air Force and others pointed out to the Republican Congress that a separate military command would require new headquarters, uniforms, equipment, possible unnecessary spending in the billions, Congressional Aides reported that the Republican Congress sort of shrugged and said, “Duh!” before rolling their eyes and walking away.

Nikolai Gorokhov, a Russian lawyer who survived after falling from a fourth-floor balcony says his plunge was “no accident” and fears he was targeted because he found key evidence in a $230 million corruption scandal involving high-ranking state officials. The assassination attempt on Gorokhov was the latest in a series of targeted killings of witnesses in the Russian fraud probe.

“I am still afraid for my life,” Gorokhov told NBC News in his first interview since surviving the 50-foot drop on March 21. “But of course I am more afraid about the safety of my family.”

When informed about the news, Russian President Vladimir Putin said it was likely Gorokhov would accidentally fall from a height of at least 150 feet next time.

A cease-fire agreement reached Friday between the United States and Russia is intended to quell fighting in southwest Syria and allow anti-government rebels there to focus on the Islamic State, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said. Tillerson announced the cease-fire as popular vote loser, Russian supported Presidential candidate and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп held his first meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin here at the Group of 20 summit.

Трамп allegedly told reporters he was thrilled with the deal. “Anything to make the boss happy!” Трамп said before being whisked away by aides to his hotel room for his evening ice-cream.
