A "high-altitude object" has been shot down over Alaska in the past hour, the White House has said. Spokesman John Kirby said the object was "the size of a small car" and was over a sparsely populated area at the time. President Joe Biden took the decision to shoot down the object, which was of unknown origin, Mr Kirby said. It comes after the US shot down a Chinese balloon over its territorial waters last Saturday. Speaking at the White House on Friday, Mr Kirby explained that the object over Alaska was travelling at 40,000ft and could have posed a threat to civilian aircraft. He added that its debris field was

I do not believe this. This is to show Biden as a strong leader after the debacle with the spy balloon. This was created to help with his approval numbers. Or we sent something up just so it could be shot down by our brave and decisive president just protecting his country.

China probably told Joe they got what they needed so it was ok to shoot it down.

This thing is described only as an object at 40,000 feet.. An "object" that's been active since at least Thursday evening. So, what is it?

Having been awakened by the unfortunate event of the Chinese spy balloon, the administration decided that it better get to acting busy in order to protect their phony baloney jobs. It was unfortunate that a goose had to be shot down as a sacrifice.

So now they're shooting down things in the sky left and right. The communists are racking up murders by the tens of thousands, so I wouldn't be surprised if they mistakenly shoot down and passenger plane or two. A small car falling from the car in pieces is a big deal, Kirby. Every time I see him on TV I think pervert; something's not right about that man.

Ok - out of an abundance of caution, why not fly up and take a look. Certainly we have military aircraft that could get close enough to take a few pictures. If it posed a ‘danger’ to commercial aviation it couldn’t have been out of reach of our military.

I’ll withhold my speculation on this. It could be an errant weather balloon from a friendly country. It could also be another Chinese spy balloon with the CCP thinking that FJB would allow another one to traverse the country before shooting it down off the SC coast. If he let one go unmolested, why not send a dozen or more?

Just for the sake of argument, we’ll pretend that everyone (EVERYONE) hasn’t figured it out already. I’ll explain it. #1 #2, #7, #9, and #35 are correct. I have a hunch that whoever’s pulling the strings and trying to make the Biden Administration look at least semi-sentient, decided to launch something, anything, so Traitor Joe could give the order to “shoot it down!” over Alaska and look decisive. Keep it low, nothing over 40,000’. Keep it small, nothing larger that a couple of half-Volkswagens. Make sure it’s unmanned. (Why the heck can’t we use units of measure anymore? Last week’s 200” tall ballon was “about 3 school buses.” Today’s was “a small car.” Remember feet, yards, and meters? They’ll still work, y’all.) Did the plan work? No. He’s still “Weekend at Bernie’s” without the fun friends. To paraphrase #1, it won’t be long till we shoot something important, or worse, something that shoots back. But no more homemade decoy balloons, please. And may God continue to bless America!

Fox News chief political analyst Brit Hume said Monday on FNC’s “Special Report” that the Biden administration is shooting down everything after letting a Chinese spy balloon cross America before shooting it down.

They shot that one down. Now it seems they’re shooting everything down that they can see. And the interest interesting question what are we shooting down? We shot these things down.

The unidentified flying object shot down in Canadian airspace on Saturday appeared to be a "small, metallic balloon with a tethered payload below it," according to a Pentagon memo sent to lawmakers on Monday and obtained by CNN. The memo offers the first official details of one of the three objects shot down in recent days that was previously described as a "cylindrical object." The object crossed near "US sensitive sites" before it was shot down, the memo said. Defense officials also wrote in the memo to lawmakers that the object shot down over Lake Huron, in Michigan on Sunday, "subsequently slowly descended" into the water after impact.

Let’s start with the balloon whose story is the most clear, i.e. the Chinese spy balloon that flew over the US this month. That balloon was shot down over the ocean off the coast of South Carolina. You may have seen photos of portions of the balloon being pulled into a boat. These images were taken last week. Today the DOD released even more photos of the ongoing recovery effort. All of this material appears to be part of the skin of the balloon which was a couple hundred feet across. But the bigger news is that we’ve now recovered a major piece of the payload

That’s bad. What’s worse is that we’re learning that the State Department was helping fund the campaign to defund conservative media. The Washington Examiner revealed in a two-part report (here and here) how various organizations claimed to track “disinformation.” That “disinformation,” of course, was anything that countered the Democrat narrative on politics and social issues. American Thinker was among the list of 39 conservative sites that also included Newsbusters, Town Hall, Rush Limbaugh, Daily Wire, Breitbart, etc.

Alright, maybe I was too quick to dismiss the possibility of aliens. The Pentagon gave a briefing on Sunday evening after yet another unidentified flying object was shot down, this time in US airspace over Lake Huron. Reports began to circulate that the object was an “octagon” and that it didn’t appear to be a balloon. That set off some speculation that the recent rash of UFOs were balloons, likely from China, but that they were simply shaped differently than one would expect. In a pretty shocking statement, though, Gen. Glen VanHerck made it clear that’s not the view of the US military. The UFOs not being balloons would be crazy enough,
