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.

All I see is a balloon skin. I don't see the superstructure below. You know, the important part. Let us know when that's found.

Indeed, #1 - at least the Mail removed the "sensational" modifier from the headline. As for the recovery, the balloon is easy - it floats. What we want is lying on the sea floor, scattered over a square mile or more. Not that we can't pull it off. The Navy has located and recovered stuff from miles down and the bottom on this part of the continental shelf is shallow, flat, and sandy. Scanning sonar should be able to find all the pieces with little difficulty, so at least something will have gone right with the whole mess.

Looks like China is really angry with ole Joe. Ha. Anyone really believe that? China trying to make Biden look tough. If Biden was tough that balloon never would have made it more then ten feet into Alaska! Which surprises me that Biden allowed the balloon to cross into USA territory. Cause “no one F’s with a Biden!” Well. Except China. Oh. And Kimmy in N K. And then there’s Afghanistan. Oh. Brazil. And Iran. Oh. Don’t forget the Saudi’s. Russia Russia RUSSIA!

Most of what China does is fundamentally illegitimate. Stealing intellectual property on an industrial scale, spying on civil and military everywhere, building faux 'islands' hundreds of miles out at sea, and claiming tens of thousands of square miles of open ocean as their "coastal waters". China is fundamentally evil, corrupt, fraudulent, lying and criminal.....and that's the GOVERNMENT.

If Donald Trump were rightly president right now, he would have had the Navy and the Air Force coordinate shooting down this balloon over the Pacific Ocean as soon as it reached US air space. The Navy would have recovered the whole thing before it even touched the water. But Lyin' Joe bidet was just following orders from his Chinese paymasters. Let it float over the American mainland for a week or so, transmitting all of its data back to China, then shoot it down over the Atlantic where they can recover the balloon, but not all the important technology that was probably designed to self-destruct as soon as it hit the water. Lyin' Joe probably earned himself a bonus for being such a good lackey for the Chinese government!!!

The F-22 was a great success against a 4000 square foot balloon while moving at 50mph. I wonder how it would be against the latest CCP fighter jet. I only hope the Joint Chiefs do not identify the heroic pilot.

What a dumb military operation using an expensive missile to down a large balloon. Shows the whole world that the US will be ruthless in dealing with balloons. A short burst with a cannon carried in the fighter plane would have had the same effect, less dramatic perhaps, but retrievers will be waiting for the balloon to touch water. No wonder the US left behind so much arms and equipment in Afghanistan. And the idiot Milley still has a job. Unbelievable.

WASHINGTON — A trio of former bigwigs at Twitter told the House Oversight Committee Wednesday they could not recall major facts about the decision to suppress The Post’s bombshell October 2020 stories on Hunter Biden’s laptop — though one claimed the decision was based in part on the social media giant’s own echo chamber rather than the demands of federal law enforcement. Under questioning led by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), former Twitter deputy general counsel James Baker, ex-head of trust and safety Yoel Roth and former policy director Vijaya Gadde took turns deflecting allegations of “collusion” between the FBI and Twitter to censor The Post.

President Joe Biden said Wednesday that he didn't believe the House GOP's probe into his son Hunter and brother James' foreign business dealings would have an impact on his presidency.  'The public's not going to pay attention to that. They want these guys to do something,' Biden said. 'It's not going to go very far.' The president sat down for a wide-ranging post-State of the Union interview with PBS NewsHour's Judy Woodruff, which included the admission that he hadn't made a final decision to run in 2024. 'I haven't made my decision, that's my intention, but I have not made that decision firmly yet,' he said.

Former President Donald Trump is ahead of his potential 2024 Republican challengers by double digits, a Tuesday Morning Consult survey found. The survey showed Trump leading his closest potential challenger, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), by 18 percent, garnering 49 percent support compared to the governor’s 31 percent.  No other potential challenger comes close, as former Vice President Mike Pence falls to third place with just seven percent support. Former U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley, who is reportedly slated to announce a presidential bid this month, comes in fourth place with three percent support, followed by former Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) with two percent and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)

The numbers are in for Joe Biden’s State of the Union address on Tuesday evening, and they aren’t good. According to CNN’s post-speech poll, Biden’s divisive, dishonest spectacle scored the lowest ratings of any State of the Union since 1998, with just 34 percent saying they had a “very positive” reaction.(Tweet) The press, including CNN, did their best to spin the numbers in Biden’s favor, choosing to focus on the topline number showing 72 percent had a positive reaction. Context is everything, though, and the context of that number is that it’s actually very low compared to other modern presidents, including Donald Trump. Audiences traditionally have a largely positive reaction

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.

In a dramatic escalation of his long-running battle against Disney, the Florida governor on Monday announced he was taking control of the Reedy Creek board. The five-member board oversees nearly 40 square miles of Florida, on which the Walt Disney World Resort is built. 'Florida is dissolving the Corporate Kingdom and beginning a new era of accountability and transparency,' DeSantis deputy press secretary told in a statement. DeSantis will also rename the site, switching its name from Reedy Creek to the Central Florida Tourism Oversight District.
