Pentagon Confirms Shot-Down Objects Aren't
Balloons, Makes an Even Weirder Admission

Original Article

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,

What should be worrysome is that the DOD has no clue what they are firing Sidewider missiles at. IOWs America is depending upon a military that is clueless on what it is doing. They know nothing. Why? Trillions of $$$ have been spent on military items and intelligence, and the military is saying we Don't know. Where is Lame Duck, assuring us that everything is okay? He's too busy scarfing down his tapioca in Rehobeth. America at this point in time is completely fubar'd.

Where are the videos? The pictures? We saw video from missile strikes in Iraq 20 years ago, we should have even better equipment now, especially at $381,000 per missile. I don’t believe anything coming out of this administration, the DOD, FBI or CIA. And I’m not sure I’d believe their photos at this point either for that matter. Alien UFOs? A species sophisticated enough to send interplanetary gravity defying craft that can’t avoid our missiles? Please. This just screams DISTRACTION, but from WHAT? Not even the Chinese balloon warrants this level of subterfuge. What are they doing behind the scenes while this plays out?

Any smart teenager (if you can find one) can build a balloon or a solar powered drone that could stay up there indefinitely. There is a drone with a 300 ft wingspan that has been up there for years taking pictures and weather measurements. It these things have the US Military confused, we are in deep trouble. I would think that since the idea is now popular, we will be seeing hundreds of them.

BTW, what happened to the Chinese balloon that was traversing South and Central America a week ago last SAT? Suddenly it's nearly impossible to find any reference to it. Why is that? Curious, isn't it. With this administration it's ALWAYS important to pay attention to what ISN'T mentioned.

Show me some wreckage. I don't believe that they shot down anything. Perhaps "shot at", maybe. But unless you have clear video and wreckage, I think that this is a BS "look a UFO" moment to distract from Traitor Joe and Medals Milley's punting on the ChiCom balloon until it's mission was completed.

A hazardous chemical leak from a rollover crash involving a commercial tanker truck closed Interstate 10 in both directions in Tucson. The crash happened at around 2:43 p.m. on I-10 near Kolb and Rita Roads on Tuesday. The freeway was closed as crews worked to mitigate the situation, according to the Arizona Department of Public Safety. University of Arizona police later tweeted that anyone within a one mile of the crash should shelter in place and turn off any air-conditioning units that bring in outside air.

The Biden Justice Department has a dilemma. Up until January 9, 2023, when CBS News reported that President Joe Biden had a classified documents scandal of his own, you could have bet the ranch that DOJ was poised to indict former President Donald Trump for illegally retaining national-security intelligence at his Mar-a-Lago estate. Prosecutors were getting their ducks in a row, taking the kind of steps that are only taken when the government is very serious about filing charges: appointing a special counsel, forcing former executive officials to testify before the grand jury despite potential privilege claims, aggressively litigating in the district and appellate courts to prevent Trump’s

Air India will purchase more than 200 planes from Boeing, a White House official says President Joe Biden will announce Tuesday. It's the third biggest sale of all time for the aircraft manufacturer.

The purchase will also include customer options for an additional 50 Boeing 737 MAXs and 20 Boeing 787s, totaling 290 airplanes for a total of $45.9 billion at list price.

“And when you kick back, it hurts them more if you are wearing heels.” Nikki Haley released a 3-minute and 33-second video today that announces her candidacy for president. This comes a day before her official campaign announcement which she will make Wednesday in South Carolina. Is this how we do things now? Maybe this is what generational change looks like. Traditionally, a candidate waits to announce his or her candidacy at an official rally or event and then the video ads begin. Haley looks eager to get started, which may play in her favor. She’s enthusiastically confident in her ability to run for president.

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.

When it was announced that a promo video for the show would air during the Super Bowl, heads figuratively exploded. They know that exposing the show to the gigantic Super Bowl audience, many of whom had never heard of it, would inevitably drive sampling, and that some of the new viewers would stay with the show, further driving down their ratings.

Kamala Harris is a living embodiment of the Peter Principle, where people keep getting promoted until they reach jobs for which they are clearly unqualified. More and more Americans think that describes our current vice president. Harris is deeply unpopular with independents, who are essential for electoral success (fewer than one in three voters view her favorably), and she is losing popularity among Democratic Party leaders. They see her ineptitude, listen to her word salads, and watch the polls with dismay. The latest evidence of Harris’ fading position is a sharply critical article in the New York Times, of all places, filled with anonymous disapproval from senior Democrats
