Well, that Chinese “weather” balloon is now over North Carolina. Commentators on Fox News made some interesting observations about it. One said they could have shot it down over the Aleutians before it ever hit the mainland and that would have been of little harm to anyone. Another said that weather balloons are usually about 20 ft. in circumference whereas this balloon is much larger than that and it appears that it can be guided.
The Biden Regime claims that all options are on the table regarding this balloon. That could mean that this regime will probably do nothing that might antagonize the Chinese Communist Party. The fact that this “weather” balloon has violated our air space and seems to be flying over several of our military installations doesn’t seem to bother Biden or his handlers one bit–just as long as we don’t shoot it down, because doing that might antagonize Biden’s Chinese overlords, which would be financially unacceptable for the Biden family!
Some have wondered why the Chinese would use this balloon technology instead of relying on their satellite technology. One commentator noted that a balloon at 60,000 feet can transmit a sharper image in many cases than satellite technology can. So it would seem that if the Chinese Reds want a clear image of our nuclear installations in Montana the balloon is the way to go.
However, Comrade Biden has assured us that “we will take care of it.” Yeah, right! For decades the Chinese Reds have been stealing information and technology from this country. Most of our presidents have just winked and looked the other way, as if this was part of the game, which for devotees of the Deep State, it is. Those people want to tear this country down and raise China up, because, for them, China, with its totalitarian government is their model for the world–as long as they get to be the totalitarians. Trump was the only president to attempt to resist this trend. Now, with Biden in the White House, China will have fullsway over whatever they want to do, as long as they do it slowly enough so they don’t overly alarm the American populace–and Biden’s okay with that as long as the financial arrangements continue to benefit his family. I had a friend who recently commented on the internet that “Biden sold out to China long ago.” It’s hard not to agree with that sentiment! That’s sure the way it appears
So, if the option Biden chooses regarding this “weather” balloon is to just let it float its merry way back to Beijing with all the intelligence it has gathered, I will not be surprised. I hope I am wrong, but based on past performances, it seems that this is what Biden is willing to do. I fear for the people on Taiwan when the Communists decide the moment has come to invade that island because I am afraid that whatever help Biden gives Taiwan will be just enough so it will look genuine, but not be really enough to resist Communist aggression there. Keep your eyes peeled for more “weather” balloons that just “accidentally” stray over US territory because Biden’s strategy may be to just let them keep coming and going until the Chinese Reds have all the info they need!
Now we are being told they might shoot this balloon down once it gets over the Atlantic. Why didn’t they do that when it was over the Pacific? Biden must be getting some political heat for his do nothing approach so far. So we will see what his handlers will let him do to save some political face.
