The US military shot down the Chinese spy balloon that floated through U.S. airspace on Saturday, as Americans learned President Biden and his administration had known about the incursion for a week — but kept it secret, fearing it would derail Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s planned meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping in Beijing. A pair of American fighter jets circled the surveillance craft as it neared the coast of South Carolina, then pierced it with a missile once it was safely over the Atlantic Ocean, video showed.

Joe Biden saying he ordered it shot down on Wednesday is another Corn Pop story. The whole manner in which the administration and Pentagon brass handled this stinks to high they were all COLLUDING with the Chinese!

So, how much sensitive data that can be used to destroy us get transmitted from the time Biden knew until it was shot down and hopefully the transmitter is in out hands?

No Biden did not. He thought they were talking about a balloon that he would be getting from a drag queen clown that will be coming to our White House to read groomer child books to Joey. Does anyone really believed that anyone surrounding FJB asks him about anything except what flavor pudding he wants at lunch? Just imagine the blackmail evidence the ChiComs have on Biden, his cabal, the top echelon of the Armed Services, especially those two obese traitors Miley and Austin, the communist death democrats in Congress, and most off the treasonous communist death republicans.

So why wasn't it shot down moments after it entered our airspace a week ago? When did treason no longer become a punishable offense? Joe and our military leaders need prosecuted.

I have a question about the Sidewinder missile used to bring down the surveillance baloon. The AIM-9X provides a launch-and-leave air combat missile capability, which uses passive infrared energy for acquisition and tracking of enemy aircraft. What is the infrared heat energy source used by the missile to acquire an unmanned beloon flying at 60,000 feet?

They had to wait until it was over the Atlantic Ocean so it could disappear into the sea. Next headline: "Despite Our Best Efforts, We Cannot Locate the Spy Balloon or It's Equipment" They think we're fools!

So....our worthless govt, led by Boy Dementia, spots the balloon before it reaches the continental US, allows it to fly over the entire country while NOT knowing what was contained, then shoots it down with a damn missile over the Atlantic, creating a 7 mile debris field ? Can our govt be any more inept ? Or is it corrupt ? We will NEVER be told the truth as to what was on the balloon.

Biden shoots down a balloon with an 3 F-22's and a million dollar missle----after the balloon has traversed the U.S., hovered over all U.S. missile bases, and transmitted the surveillance photos back to China. It was a highly successful mission for the Chinese.

You have to ask just who is the Commander-in-Chief of the US military these days, a “woke” President who appears to have been compromised by past corrupt influence peddling practices involving his family and the Chinese Communists, and who certainly appears to be the victim of declining cognitive abilities, or the bunch of former and active duty “woke” appointed Pentagon Generals, who certainly have never won a war? In the past when a President ordered Pentagon Generals to carry out a kinetic military action, as far as we know that Presidential order was carried out, but recently who knows!

The buffoon lied about the balloon just as he lies about everything else. The balloon probably didn't get any more information than he already sent them from his cache of illegally-obtained classified documents. The traitor needs to be impeached - now.

So, the 'President' of the United States says to shoot it down right away and it isn't? So no one in Military Command listens to him? Or much more likely, his handlers decided to wait and then try and do damage control later. He is a corrupt puppet.

You know, after what we have seen in old Joe during his career and especially the past 2 years, the accolades, his single handed accomplishments, I'm just breathless ! Why, I'm surprised that upon hearing of this transgression, that old Joe didn't hop in his Corvette, drive out to Reagan or Andrews ( makes no difference, an airport is an airport ) told the guard in the shack to whistle him up an SR71 or a Sopwith Camel or C5A Galaxy ( hey, a plane is a plane, they all fly the same anyway ), jump in that puppy, blast up to 60 thousand feet, shoot that 'intruder' down, and as it fell, grab the balloon it with his free hand so that he could come back, land on Broadway in NYC just in time for the ticker tape parade ! /soff

Vice President Kamala Harris has been eerily quiet about President Joe Biden’s classified document scandal, causing at least some Republicans to believe Harris could be angling to push Biden out of the way for a shot at the Oval Office. Though Harris has delivered several public statements since the scandal was leaked to the press on January 9, she has neither supported Biden nor condemned any wrongdoing. Her public comments during this timeframe have largely remained on script, ranging from global warming, Venn diagrams, electricity, school buses, and the southern border invasion.

Once upon a time we mocked the Soviet Union for its gerontocracy. Aged party leaders, bundled up in overcoats and fur hats to the point of near-unrecognizability, would be wheeled out to sit, immobile, as parades passed or party congresses opened. Their withered, stale leadership was emblematic of the decaying USSR’s withered, stale ideology — and industrial base. But now the joke’s on us. A leading United States senator, Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), can’t seem to remember important things, like her just-taken vote on a judicial nominee and her just-announced retirement. “Did I vote for that?” she asked an aide Wednesday, moments after leaving the chamber.
