After the saga of China’s spy balloon stretched on for the better part of a week, President Joe Biden behaved as though decisive action had been taken with his order to “shoot it down” while the Pentagon shamelessly endeavored to find fault in former President Donald Trump. (Video) Biden put on his best tough guy walk Saturday as he stepped off Air Force One and strode over to waiting members of the press to brag about taking down the airborne surveillance device after it was given time to chart a path from Montana to South Carolina.

Few people reading this are stupid enough to believe what either the Pentagon or Joe Biden says. But there may still be a sizeable number of people who _need_ to believe the Pentagon and Biden because their whole fantasy world hinges on their tribal faith. In that cohort? Willful ignoramuses' and cowards all.

The story is that the balloon floated on in over Alaska and floated merrily, merrily on its way, over military bases and over fields and ways, mountains and valleys, cities and towns; jaunty and floaty it went across the USA. And then, then, the blissful balloon was SHOT OUT OF THE SKY by the cruel and merciless Biden.

Now Biden and his leftist Democrat crew are trying to distract from Biden’s incompetence by drawing in the former Trump Administration claiming that Trump allowed three Chinese surveillance balloons operating over the USA to accomplish their missions without any U.S. military hindrance. That does not appear to be the way Trump and his crew operated when Trump was President.

If this it true, and I do not believe that Biden told them to shoot it down, then members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff should be demoted and/or dishonorably discharged. Apparently they disobeyed a direct order from the Command in Chief.

As a scientist and retired from the USAF - Just use some common sense. How fair can you see to the nap of the earth from 60,000 feet. Think of all the sensors/emitters in the infrasturcture - railroads, train yards, electrical grid, pipelines, waterways, irrigation system, airports, navigation aids, etc. Lets say you went across the whole USA (It did). Lets guess the air balloon had power and was maneuverable. It had directable antennas and directable satellite links. Our infrastructure is way out of date. My guess it was a slow-moving electronic signal vacuum cleaner, not counting the other sensors and it got it all. If it went in a straight line and got a swath 600 miles wide from coast to coast that is a lot of intelligence you can do damage with. Now do tell what stupid generals, intelligence agents, cabinet members and the National Security Staff that let this happen. They shot it down after the damage was done. They should all get fired. If it is true, that money has changed hands to allow this happen someone needs to pay. You can bet some poor lower sacrificial lamb will pay for it when you know what hits the fan.

New York Taxpayers Give $2.1 Billion to
Illegal Immigrants with Large Sums Lining
Pockets of Landlords

Posted by Imright 2/7/2023 6:41:09 PM Post Reply
New York taxpayers spent $2.1 billion on a program to support illegal immigrants, with much of the money going to landlords, a recent report from the Urban Institute reveals. The Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) explains that the report from the Urban Institute centered around the Excluded Workers Fund (EWF), which provided funds to illegal immigrants who had been excluded from unemployment insurance programs due to their illegal status. Much of the money ended up in the hands of landlords. The EWF had two benefit levels: a one-time payment of $15,600, which CIS notes was received by 99 percent of beneficiaries, or $3,200 for the other beneficiaries.

Lawmakers clashed as Democrats again accused Republicans of being racist for focusing committee hearings on the southern border crisis. The second hearing for the Oversight Committee in the 118th Congress on Tuesday zeroed-in on handling of migration at the southern border – it was the second hearing focusing on the migration crisis, coming just one week after the Judiciary hearing on the same topic. Chairman James Comer of Kentucky defended the hearing, noting that the powerful Oversight Committee's job is to make sure Congress is addressing issues properly, and that the hearing Tuesday is the first time the panel is hearing from government workers responsible for securing the border.

Donald Trump, who ripped through the 2016 presidential field with attacks on his rivals, reposted images of a young Ron DeSantis allegedly partying with high school teens and adding his own mocking commentary.  'That's not Ron, is it? He would never do such a thing!' Trump wrote on his Truth Social platform. The post linked to a Truth Social Account that grabbed a digital image of a young man with a bowl haircut who appears to be DeSantis surrounded by three young women. One of them, who has her arm around the now-Florida governor, is smiling and appears to be holding a brown glass bottle.

Monday’s White House press briefing largely revolved around President Biden’s State of the Union preparations and, as part of that, The New York Times’s Michael Shear surprisingly trotted out a brutal line of questioning that pressed the ever-inept Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on the reality that Democrats didn’t win the midterms because of President Biden but in spite of him. Shear started by having Jean-Pierre restate her premise: “I think you made the assertion that the reason that there wasn’t a red wave or the reason that the elections and the midterms were more successful than many people thought they would be for Democrats was because of the President.

These are individuals who can be “reasonably suspected to be involved in terrorism (or related activities.” At a House Oversight Committee hearing, on Tuesday, CBP officials confirmed to Rep. Lisa McClain (R-MI) that nearly 100 individuals on that terror watch list were apprehended in Fiscal Year 2022 alone. (Tweet/Video)

The Pentagon has released sensational photographs showing the Navy's retrieval of a suspected Chinese spy balloon shot down over the Atlantic Ocean. The mission off the coast of South Carolina has taken days, and comes as relations between Beijing and Washington rapidly deteriorate after the high-altitude aircraft was shot down on Saturday. Defense officials confirmed earlier this week that an amphibious warship, as well as several divers and underwater robots, had been deployed to survey a specific 'square mile' of ocean where the remains of the balloon were thought to be located.

Seattle’s violent crime rate rose to its highest point in 15 years in 2022, with reported homicides surging by about 24% compared to 2021, according to the Seattle Police Department’s (SPD) Year-End Crime Report, more than a year after the city cut its police budget. Rapes and aggravated assaults increased by about 4% and 5% respectively, contributing to 5,591 total reported violent offenses, a roughly 4% spike, the report shows. Though arson and burglaries declined, 1,596 more motor vehicle thefts were reported, and Seattle ended up with an around 4% higher overall crime in 2022 despite a fourth-quarter reduction. Seattle’s City Council reduced SPD funding by almost 17% in its 2021 budget

Transportation Secretary and Chasten’s wife — er, husband, Pete Buttigieg, went on NBC’s Meet the Press on Feb. 5 to preview Joe Biden’s State of the Union address. During that appearance, Buttigieg claimed that Joe Biden is just so wildly successful as president that his accomplishments cannot be easily distilled — hence Biden’s low approval ratings. Yes, Mayor Pete actually said Biden is extremely unpopular because he’s too good at his job. Buttigieg rambled out a justification of the Biden administration allowing an apparent Chinese spy balloon to cross the U.S. before shooting it down over the ocean (where, quite conveniently, no one can pick up tell-tale debris as enlightening evidence).

After all, Rush was “documented almost always right 99.7% of the time.” He was a compass that always pointed the precise bearing to truth. He was the constitutionalists’ loadstar.

The military did not detect previous flights of Chinese spy balloons over the U.S. that took place during the Trump administration, a top general said Monday, due to a "gap" in the Defense Department's ability to track certain airborne objects. Gen. Glen VanHerck, head of North American Aerospace Defense Command, cited the issue as the reason that at least three spy balloon flights were not briefed to senior Trump officials at the time. "So those balloons, so every day as a NORAD commander it's my responsibility to detect threats to North America," he told reporters at the Pentagon. "I will tell you that we did not detect those threats.
