After the Russiagate Hoax, the Covid hoax, and the Insurrection hoax, We now Have the Chinese Spy Balloon Hoax

According to Washington and the whore media, China sent a balloon that the Pentagon said “could” be loaded with explosives to spy on America. A top general said that similar balloons have entered US airspace undetected before. The balloon is huge–200 feet tall weighing in excess of a couple thousand pounds. So if such a large object can enter our airspace undetected, does this mean far smaller ICBMs can also?

Do understand that what is going on here is the purposeful creation of an incident for propaganda purposes to stoke up more animosity against China, and to spend more money on defense in Asia. We don’t have a Malaysian airliner to blame on China, but we do have a weather balloon.

After receiving a brainwashing by a Pentagon briefing, Rep. Jim Himes (D,Conn.) says that US officials will “learn a lot” from the pieces of the “Chinese spy craft” that was shot down. craft-top-intelligence-democrat_5037236.html? utm_source=Goodevening&src_src=Goodevening&utm_campaign=gv-2023-02- 06&src_cmp=gv-2023-02- 06&utm_medium=email&est=Y7JND2vR9qWS6bv3mTwO7wQqxu9qkY7BJfSUntz5oDIcE3Mm qSPUhA%3D%3D

Two other dumbshit House members, one a Republican, one a Democrat declare the blown-off-course weather balloon “a violation of American sovereignty.” downed-chinese-spy-craft-top-intelligence-democrat_5037236.html? utm_source=Goodevening&src_src=Goodevening&utm_campaign=gv-2023-02- 06&src_cmp=gv-2023-02- 06&utm_medium=email&est=Y7JND2vR9qWS6bv3mTwO7wQqxu9qkY7BJfSUntz5oDIcE3Mm qSPUhA%3D%3D

The Chinese explanation is the only one that makes any sense:

“It is a civilian airship used for research, mainly meteorological, purposes. Affected by the Westerlies and with limited self-steering capability, the airship deviated far from its planned course. The Chinese side regrets the unintended entry of the airship into US airspace due to an unforeseen and unintended outcome. The Chinese side will continue communicating with the US side and properly handle this unexpected situation caused by wind and limited steering capability.” (A translation uses the term “force majeure,” an unforeseen event.)

But the spy story continues. It is needed in order to worsen relations with China, the second nuclear power that Washington is doing everything it possibly can to antagonize. Keep in mind that in these days spying is done by satellites, not by weather balloons. If China is using balloons to spy on the US, why did China send a balloon over Columbia. Why is China spying on South America? spotted-over-latin-america-is-chinese_5036552.html? utm_source=Goodevening&src_src=Goodevening&utm_campaign=gv-2023-02- 06&src_cmp=gv-2023-02- 06&utm_medium=email&est=A%2Bq%2BmHT0%2Far2YCpkxGAoJhKzlU7akx%2F7ECnWns40 jjR8g67O3pdYGw%3D%3D

The Columbian military determined that the balloon posed no threat to national security, defense, or air safety. Washington lacks the capability of the Columbian military, because Washington is in the business of creating a hoax issue.

Try to think of something the government has told the truth about. Tonkin Gulf? Ruby Ridge? Waco? Oklahoma City Bombing? 9/11? Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction? Assad’s use of chemical weapons? Gaddafi? Russiagate? January 6 insurrection? Covid? Covid vaccine? Ukraine? Malaysian airliner? Find one thing that was true.

All the government’s lies, parroted by the presstitutes, are designed to advance secret agendas. The people are brainwashed with lies so that they go along with the agendas. That is the way the US government functions. There is no longer an American media. Just an indoctrination ministry. Only official narratives please. All else is misinformation.

Gotta disagree on this one. There is no reason to believe China is more benevolent than the US gov is. The thirst for power is probably even stronger with the CCP than the US gov, as the culture has been subservient to authoritarianism for the last 5000 years. And the shear size of this contraption is itself a red flag, so to speak. It's enormous. If they made balloons that can cover the globe for weather purposes, they WILL include other data collection gadgets as well. Every time. The US would do the same, and not doing it would be a dereliction of duty, both here and there.

China is the #2 economy in the world and is poised to go to #1 even if the dollar doesn't collapse. The country has predatory economic tentacles all over the world and there's no question their communist philosophy of putting the state first, ahead of individual rights, would be limiting those individuals to only the Chinese population.

China is a world threat, and it was a spy balloon.

Chinese satellites and their huge numbers of agents in the US collect data on what is important. A balloon is subject to prevailing winds and cannot zero in on anything in particular. So if there is anything malicious about these balloons, its not spying. Preparing to launch an EMP attack on our power grid? Could be. Getting even with us for our biological attacks on Chinese economy as per Ron Unz? Could be.

But then what are the balloons doing over South America? Surely China has no interest in disrupting Argentina's power grid or introducing pathogens to Chile.

Often more is better and each mode of spying inevitably offers advantages other methods do not. Being far lower, it could take much better images and intercept radio communications more easily. Yes, they have satellites that they use just as we do, but balloons are 12 miles up while satellites are 100+ miles up. They could also carry EMP bombs which would serve as a first strike method, so they cannot be permitted as a matter of course on the assumption they are not military.

They reportedly do have some limited steering capability, which is possible by controlling the altitude at which it flies to catch different air currents. If it's able to compress the helium gas in the balloon, it could lower it's altitude, and uncompress it to go to a higher altitude. And it's not out of the question that it could have a solar powered prop on it to actually propel it.

And again, the sheer size of this balloon and payload is a red flag. This is not a balloon 10 feet in diameter with a thermometer and radio transmitter on it as we may remember from some videos of launches of US weather balloons.

In this picture, it shows the balloon which is at 60,000 feet. The airplane in it appears to be a commercial airliner. It gives a good scale because the airline's max altitude is about 35,000 feet. So in this photo, the balloon is almost 2x farther away than the airliner is. That gives a scale of how huge this thing is and along with that, how much weight it's carrying.

Also the operational cost of balloons would be about zero. They don't need fuel to stay aloft and could do that for probably months or years, and of course it's far cheaper than putting that same amount of weight payload into orbit. So the fact that they fly over all countries is not an issue. It costs China about nothing to have them flying all over the globe, with their being content to wait until they happen to fly over targets of interest. And they can also be recovered whenever they reenter Chinese territory, serviced & upgraded, and relaunched. Can't do that with satellites.

Of course I don't trust the US deep state with it's escapades world over, but I see no reason to suspect that China is more trustworthy than the USA is. The US gov does not have a monopoly on clandestine operations and a will to dominate the world. The Chinese people have a highly authoritarian culture dates back some 5000 years which is in large part why it persists today in the form of the Chinese Communist Party. I suspect after that much time executing dissidents, it's ingrained in their DNA. As bad as the US gov is days, at least they give lip service to individual rights. China doesn't even do that. If China has the opportunity, they will take over the world in away far worse than how the US has done.

The Chinese have come a long way to dominating the world but not through military means. Trade is their weapon. They don't attack any other country nor overthrow other countries' governments.

Military policy seems to be centered on building their navy which most likely is designed to protect their trade routes. Much like the British navy in the 19th century.

Our war with China is of our own doing. We don't like them taking over much of Africa via trade while we are trying to do the same via AFRICOM. Asymmetrical warfare if you will.

Whoa, that IS huge.

That thing looks like it would exceedingly easy to shoot down. More than one country has shot down a commercial airliner for violating their claimed airspace. E.g., the USSR's murdering Larry McDonald on September 1, 1983.
