US Defense Official: The Balloon Is Collecting Data of Sensitive Areas

The CCP surveillance balloon is 60,000 feet over St. Louis and heading Southeast. It is maneuverable, and the CCP is still playing dumb. They claim it’s a weather balloon, but the Pentagon said it’s not. It’s a spy craft. They can probably see as much from satellites, but this is in our air space.

A senior U.S. defense official alleged with “very high confidence” on Thursday that the balloon is flying over sensitive areas to collect information, according to AP.

The balloon was spotted in Montana, the location of one of the three nuclear missile silo fields at Malmstrom Air Force Base.

They probably mapped our grid by now as well.

Meanwhile Biden does nothing!

Axios:

[Secretary of State Antony] Blinken said during a briefing Friday that he made clear to Wang Yi, China’s top foreign affairs official, that the surveillance balloon in U.S. airspace “is a clear violation of U.S. sovereignty and international law.”

  • “We concluded that conditions were not conducive for a constructive visit at this time,” he added, calling it “detrimental to the substantive discussions that we were prepared to have.” [Blinken was supposed to visit this weekend. This is his invite.]
  • Pentagon press secretary Brig. Gen. Pat Ryder said during a press conference earlier Friday that the balloon is being “closely” monitored by the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD).
  • He said the airship was drifting east at an altitude of 60,000 feet and was over the center of the continental U.S., but he didn’t give an exact location.
  • A National Weather Service (NWS) station in Kansas City said it has received reports of and could see a large balloon near its station on Friday and confirmed it was not an NWS weather balloon.

Allegedly, other CCP balloons have been spotted. We should be afraid of these Maoists.

Shoot it down!

The communist chinamen have been in collusion with Joe Biden, which is why he hasn’t shot down the two things. HE WAS PAID BY THE CHINAMEN TO LET IT GO.

Who the hell can believe anything the Pentagon has to say. Full of notorious liars. I wouldn’t be surprised if its sole purpose was to cause the reaction it has. A “Spy Balloon”. Come on man. It’s more likely there are Chinese spies in the administration. If anyone wants to find just go and ask Hunter.

The Chinese Trojan Horse wonders our skies at will. This is what happens when you allow Stolen Elections to stand!

This may be a test EMP flight. Satellites have great detection abilities. Balloons are obsolete for recon. They cannot be positioned accurately anyhow. Our DoD is entirely untrustworthy. By default, they are lying. EMP devices must operate lower than satellites, in the 60-80,000 foot range, where the balloon is at, so that the pulse does not get blocked in the upper atmosphere. We are now trapped in a nation which works for our destruction. They gave $83 billion in new weaponry to the Taliban. We hear nothing from Biden and that awful DoD secretary about this latest embarrassing event. If the USA gets too out of control in Ukraine, our nation will be turned off, and the elites home and abroad may want that to happen.
