The United States government is monitoring a suspected Chinese surveillance balloon that has been moving over northern states over the past several days.
Pentagon spokesperson Brig. Gen. Pat Ryder said during a briefing on Thursday afternoon that the U.S. government has detected a high altitude surveillance ballon over the continental United States.
"The United States government has detected and is tracking a high-altitude surveillance balloon that is over the continental United States right now. The U.S. government to include Norad, continues to track and monitor*it closely. The balloon is currently traveling at an altitude well above commercial air traffic and does not present a military or physical threat to people on the ground. Instances of this kind of balloon activity have been observed previously over the past several years. Once the balloon was detected, the US government acted immediately to protect against the collection of sensitive information," Ryder said.

Same reason we can't call it the Wuhan Flu or blame China for shitting in the world's swimming pool? Or make Hunter's laptop info public? Or expose the stolen election?

We can't start an international incident that might cause China to lower their bid for the purchase of America. Biden needs the sale to go through.

Why don't they shoot it down?

Washington is in bed with China -- especially their ideology (Marxism).

The Marines openly and happily celebrate "Pride Month" in June.

"We the people" are the enemy of Washington, not China.

Holy jeebus, when China flies a fighter plane over the US, are we going to be worried about the debris field? What a crock if shit. We were prepared to shoot down rogue passenger planes during and after 9/11 and now we won't shoot an enemy balloon. We have become a military joke.

Russia had no problem shooting down our U2 that was overflying their country.

Most certainly put a shitload of egg on then president Eisenhower, I remember it well!

Biden and his collection of idiots that are running this country do not have a clue!
