The current leadership vacuum within the United States is calling to the world’s most ambitious dictators.
While it’s difficult to tell if the current President is too confused to function or up to his ears in nefarious schemes, something foul is afoot.
Now China just pulled a stunt you’d expect in a b-rated movie and the implications are terrifying.
News that China sent a massive spy balloon to tour the United States rocked the country this past week.
China was quick to claim that it was merely a weather collecting balloon simply blown off course.
Of course, it conveniently just happened to float over numerous sensitive military sites—revealing the details left blacked out on Google Earth maps for security purposes.
Incredibly, while they were aware of the spy balloon’s presence—and instantly rejected China’s claims that it’s anything other than a snooping device—Joe Biden refused to bring it down until it finished crossing Alaska and the entire continental United States.
Biden claimed he couldn’t bring the balloon down without putting humans and property at risk, but Montana Governor Greg Gianforte (R-MT) called his bluff on that one.
The Republican told Tucker Carlson the Department of Defense didn’t even bother to tell him about the overhead border breach until it was hundreds of miles inside Big Sky Country borders drifting over Billings, the state’s largest city.
Governor Gianforte was appalled that the Defense Department didn’t annihilate the threat to national security before the balloon ever reached civilization.
“If it was up to Montanans, this thing would have been taken out of the sky the moment it entered our sovereign airspace,” Gianforte explained.
“Eastern Montana is probably one of the best places to take it down. We could have contained it. We could have found out what the mission truly was by recovering whatever electronics are on this balloon,” he added.
“If the Americans had flown a spy balloon over China, do you think you’d still be in the air? Of course not. We should have taken action,” Gianforte concluded. “Unfortunately, we’ve emboldened our enemy today.”
The stunt—which seems like something out of a lame movie—seems likely to be more of a leadership challenge by China than an information gathering mission.
After all, China can already fire off satellites to collect data and images giving them a bird’s eye view.
There’s also extensive evidence the Communist nation has had spies on the ground inside the United States along with buying off an untold number of researchers—some working in the highest levels of government projects.
Now it seems the world power is flexing its muscles while the Biden administration appears to be distracted trying to saddle the Trump administration with blame for the invasion into American airspace.
Then again, that might not be so surprising in light of credible allegations that Hunter Biden pulled in $31 million for the Biden Family coffers in a series of “deals” with high-level Communists in China who all have ties to the country’s spy agency.
The question now is exactly who will make the next move—and whether it will end up fulfilling predictions that the United States will end up locked in a war with China by 2025.
