On Monday during an interview with Fox Business Network, Republican Rep. Mike Waltz suggested that the Pentagon and General James Mattis refused to tell then-President Donald Trump about Chinese spy balloons because they were worried his reaction would be too strong. “My office has been briefed by the office of the Secretary of Defense of the current Pentagon that it happened over Florida, it happened over Texas, and that it’s happened before,” he said during the interview. “We have more detailed questions but what is unclear, Stuart, at this point is, did the Pentagon under the Trump Administration brief the Trump White House and give them the option to take action or

"refused to tell then-President Donald Trump about Chinese spy balloons because they were worried his reaction would be too strong" If true, General James Mattis need to be held accountable for his treasonous actions against the U.S. Constitution in the form of swift justice.

I find the claim that the ChiComs were flying balloons during PDJT’s Admin to be laughable. Xi Jinping was sitting next to the President when we sent a “hello” into Syria. The idea that Xi would provoke a response from Trump is incredulous.

I believe the story about balloons during Trump's Presidency is Bull Sh** made up by Democrats to try to soften the blow on the "big guy".

Who knows who is telling the truth? The Deep State has been and is now constantly lying to us. The Deep State doesn't give a rip about us other than making us their subjects. If there were Chicom Balloons during 45's administration and no one told him there should be consequences of the highest order. Congress should call all former Military Chiefs of Staff and Intelligence Agency Directors and grill them royally about the Chicom Balloons. Put out the call for Whistle Blowers. Find out the real truth.

Why, FINALLY, does not the Press come out and say what we all know: this is just another Biden tall tall, only a more serious one than Corn Pop et al. Why does the Press not ask the specifics of how the Biden Administration can NOW know what, apparently, nobody knew years and years ago re: incursions. ( And if there were incursions, what does it mean if the sitting President and his entire administration are NOT told?). The Press is willing to swallow anything and everything, never even realizing that most of us now think of them as simply more credentialed versions of the morons on The View?

Former President Donald Trump responded to President Joe Biden’s State of the Union Address Tuesday night, focusing on the mass illegal immigration taking place at the southern border, crime, drops in real wages, and “corruption.” “Here’s the real State of the Union: Over the past two years under Biden, millions and millions of illegal aliens from 160 different countries have stormed across our southern border,” said Trump, the lone GOP candidate officially in the 2024 primary field. Since Biden assumed office in January 2021, 4.2 million migrants have been apprehended by Border Patrol agents along the southern border, marking a record high,

President Joe Biden's State of the Union address kicked off with a sudden smooch between first and second couple members and yet another bold fashion move by influential Sen. Kyrsten Sinema. The early fireworks opened up a speech that typically devolves into policy lists and platitudes as the night wears on Tuesday night's prime time event featured angry exchanges between Biden and House Republicans who booed him for claiming they want to 'sunset' Social Security and Medicare. Sinema made a bold entrance into the House chamber for the speech, after forcing Washington to hold its collective breath during talks on the Inflation Reduction Act, then later announcing she had switched from Democrat to independent.

Joe Biden used his State of the Union to tout his economic accomplishments, express his optimism for the future, and urge Republicans to work with him. However, many Republicans took the opportunity to point out that some of the claims he made in his speech on Tuesday night did not stack up. Eric Schmitt, senator for Missouri, said: 'I think it was a state of delusion, not a State of the Union speech.' Former President Donald Trump added: 'The good news is we are going to reverse every single crisis, calamity and disaster that Joe Biden has created.

CLAIM: President Joe Biden claimed during the State of the Union that over the the last two years, he “cut the deficit by more than $1.7 trillion – the largest deficit reduction in American history.” VERDICT: MISLEADING. Biden is “distorting reality” when he claims his administration is responsible for reducing the deficit, according to CNN: The deficit has been smaller under the Biden administration than it was at the end of President Donald Trump’s tenure. But the deficit has been bigger under the Biden administration than the nonpartisan federal Congressional Budget Office had projected it would be if the Biden-era federal government stuck with the laws that were in effect when Trump

Marjorie Taylor Greene called him a 'liar' after he blamed the nation's debt on Donald Trump.

Just 39 percent of Americans adults believe the state of the union is strong before President Joe Biden likely declares it so during Tuesday’s State of the Union address. According to Monmouth polling from Monday, less than four in ten Americans say the state of the union is strong, while fifty-eight percent say it is not strong. Among those who doubt the union’s strength, 32 percent say the union is not too strong and 26 percent deem it not at all strong. Just seven percent claim it is very strong. Thirty-two percent allege it is somewhat strong. The nation has weathered difficult times under Biden’s leadership. More than two million migrants were apprehended at the southern border.

With President Joe Biden set to deliver his second State of the Union address, this one coming on the heels of the Chinese spy balloon fiasco, predictions on what to expect were making the rounds online with one common thread… the speech will light on truth. The popular Carpe Donktum account back on Twitter, courtesy of Elon Musk, served up a list of seven things to expect at Tuesday night’s joint sessions address — the all-encompassing list is pretty good, starting with the obvious — “Nuking MAGA people.” (Tweet) But did he leave anything out? There’s no mention of inflation, but Biden has already declared that it’s not his fault.

The Biden administration has been trying to plug a gigantic hole in their story about Chinese spy balloons flying over U.S. territory during the Trump administration with no one in the government aware of it. Initially, the Biden administration sought to deflect attention from their failure to shoot down the balloon by noting that Chinese spy balloons transited U.S. territory three times during the Trump years. But when several Trump administration officials hotly denied that charge, Biden administration officials changed their story. They claimed that the balloons were only over U.S. territory briefly — skirting Hawaii and flying over part of Florida — unlike this latest spy balloon, which traversed

Rep.

Greene spoke about President Joe Biden’s handling of the balloon as she held her own balloon during an interview with Breitbart News ahead of the president’s State of the Union on Tuesday. Greene said, “It’s just a white balloon, everybody,” adding, “Joe Biden’s not afraid of balloons. As a matter of fact, he allowed the Chinese to bring a spy balloon across the United States last week.”

I really miss Rush. Regardless how complex or critical the issue, I could always count on Rush Limbaugh’s entirely rational and moral analysis, delivered by an apex professional with genuine compassion, even for those with whom he disagreed. He was ensconced behind that golden EIB microphone; a master of ideas and argument. From his lofty height, he engaged with every thorny problem with an equanimity that drew a placid sagacity from an ocean of experience, and confidence. 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.

Somehow, the weirdest thing that happened at the State of the Union was not Joe Biden proclaiming that he’ll veto any legislation that raises the cost of “frisizhnjubs,” a line I’m still trying to figure out. Instead, it involved a pre-speech kiss delivered by Jill Biden to Kamala Harris’ husband, Douglas Emhoff. Honestly, I have no idea what happened here. When I first saw that, I tried to rationalize it. Maybe non-family members kiss on the lips like that routinely and I just missed it all this time. But the more I think about it, the more I don’t think I missed it. Rather, it’s just incredibly strange.
