Balloon with a view

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

 (My new American Thinker post)

The great H.L. Mencken once said “Balloonists have an unsurpassed view of the scenery.” They sure do, especially when it’s a Peking balloon flying over Montana.  

China has an explanation, and here it goes:     

“The airship is from China,” China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.

“It is a civilian airship used for research, mainly meteorological, purposes. Affected by the Westerlies and with limited self-steering capability, the airship deviated far from its planned course.”     

“The Chinese side regrets the unintended entry of the airship into US airspace due to force majeure. The Chinese side will continue communicating with the US side and properly handle this unexpected situation caused by force majeure.”

Okay, it was a mistake.  Yes, it was an honest mistake that the balloon was over ”…one of the nation’s three nuclear missile silo fields at Malmstrom Air Force Base. The official spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive information.”

Don’t you love mistakes like that?  North America is huge, but the balloon just happened to be flying over one of our sensitive military sites.  As my late mother use to say, those “comunistas” always lie to you even when you catch them in the act.

This is a devastating blow to President Biden.  I wonder if it was a message that China has embarrassing information on Joe and Hunter.  Or maybe they were showing the world that our military has spent too much time on pronouns rather than defense. Wonder what Taiwan is thinking this morning?

There may be a silver lining to this cloud.  Maybe Senator Jon Tester of Montana will finally wake up to the fact that he is voting too much with the Biden administration.   He is up for reelection in 2024 and a balloon over Montana plus the rancher’s wife paying too much for food is not helping him.

      Unless someone watches MonkeyWerx on youtube, they likely don’t know that on any given day, at any given time there are no less than three (3) google “data” balloons, aka Spy Balloons positioned at 90,000 feet above the lower 48 at intervals where the entire land mass can be monitored in perfect 4k with a zoom function that would embarrass anybody. Right? google spy balloons at 90,000 feet permanently spying on everything that moves. Shoot down the damn things. The Chinese balloons are the same thing. In fact, the “Chinese Spy Balloon” may actually be one of those google balloons that got discovered during an unexpected descent.
      1. Get educated on how everything you do is being recorded, and will be used against you at some point in the near future.
      2. Watch one episode of Monkeywerx and see for yourselves how bad it actually is. You might subscribe after the first ten minutes. :idea:
