BREAKING: Popped the Balloon … Brandon’s “Barn Door” Moment

Adam Sabes @ FNC: BREAKING NEWS: SHOT DOWN – US military shoots down Chinese spy balloon over the Atlantic Ocean

While the balloon was off the coast of South Carolina, the balloon was shot down by the U.S. military on Saturday afternoon, according to Fox News sources.

When you watch the video you can see the payload machinery free-falling toward the water below the limp deflated massive balloon. That valuable technology might well be lost to our military and intel exploitation.

Ben Hardwick: 2001: A Space Odyssey’s Ending, Explained by Stanley Kubrick

These last couple of weeks I’ve been binge-watching the two season (1963-1965) “The Outer Limits” TV series I loved as a child. While then the alien episodes scared the heck out of me. Re-watching now I’ve noticed the show production was limited to basically 3-4 alien costumes that they would attach whatever clump of hair or slimy trim on in hopes of you not noticing it’s pretty much the same ‘alien’ from a previous episode a few weeks back. But the special effects (which also were reused again and again) weren’t too bad with what the series crew had to work with back in the day, and for a television series with limited network funding to go around (hence, only 2 seasons). Still, the story writing and telling was ahead of its time during that black and white Cold War era … and yes, a lot of storylines depended on Cold War fears and mentality.

When I had completed that original series binge-watch I moved onto the re-vamped “The Outer Limits” (1995-2002) that originally aired on Showtime and Syfy and went out in syndication. I’m watching on my ROKU Channel archives. This era’s series did bring back a few original episodes with remakes, but most of the episodes are newer subject matter mentality and fears, the Cold War over and not so influential. There is more of a science-based sci-fi element, a lot of mind-harnessing, DNA-manipulation and computer/AI interference and future post-apocalyptic mankind as struggling ‘primitives’ at the enslaved mercy of overlords. The ‘alien’ related episodes are less surprising with the humans because we are to perceive mankind is experienced at space travel and open to non-human life possibilities. So, the alien-related stories don’t really have the same effect as when I was a kid. No, the episodes that tug at my peace-of-mind are those that involve the natural threat/destruction of Earth, or the colonized planet humans find themselves on. I’ve seen 2-3 episodes so far in the nearly 4 completed seasons out of 7 seasons involving solar/star major events as the mode of destruction and helplessness involving the/a sun/star and solar activity. This kind of goes back to last week’s “Space” post where I recommended the movie “Knowing”. I think it was about 30 years ago I became awed by the power of the sun and how while it is so unique in our universe and life-giving, it will eventually, with little to no warning, be the end of this world and those we share the Sol System with.

And the classic episode of The Twilight Zone: S3 E10 “The Midnight Sun” remains one of my most chilling watches since childhood, all the way to the twist and turn end. I know The Twilight Zone has a new remake TV show since 2019. I’ll have to check those episodes for a redux of that classic episode.

Which brings me to another movie involving the sun, and its diminishing power threatening Earth, “Sunshine” (2007).

A second crew must make the long travel to the sun to try to ‘refuel’ its fissionable status because it is burning out and getting colder, putting Earth in a dim light and a very cold state. They are the second mission crew because the first mission became MIA. And this ship is carrying the last of Earth’s natural resources needed to build the ship, and the fissionable materials to jump-start the sun. It is my recommended movie this week. Although, I may have done so in a past SPACE post. *shrug* Dealing with the Arctic freeze my area is having this weekend I guess I’m gravitating to the sun’s light and warmth. I mean, getting out and trying to get a firsthand glimpse of the ‘green comet’ is already hit or miss with the clouds, let alone dealing with the frigid night air.

Anyhow, I do also recommend the original and the remade “The Outer Limits” TV series offerings. You can find season-episode guides on Wiki pages for the two versions of the series.

And while we’re on the topic of a unique and rare arrival of a comet into our Sol System and passing closely by Earth, another movie to seek out streaming for is “Lifeforce” (1985). It’s quite a remarkable and rare twist of sci-fi and horror. Right now, this movie is streaming on Freevee, which is ‘free’ and all you need do is download the app. If you subscribe to Amazon Prime it’s already streaming on there.

Meanwhile, a salute to the Biden administration’s approach to China’s illegal spy balloon invading our airspace…

Saturday “Quick Hits” Newsfeed: China is Exposing America’s Government Boobs … and the Media Tits Too

(HT: Photo FNC)

Our southern and northern borders are unprotected, wide open and are being invaded. And now our airspace is defenseless … by deliberate choice on all three flanks.

As I’ve read over the years, there were Japanese on the ground that looked up and saw the A-bomb before it detonated. But *shrug*, General.

Yeeeeahhh … Let’s just take the CCP’s word for it, huh?

Timothy H.J. Nerozzi: China maintains spy balloon is civilian, claims some in US ‘have hyped it up to attack and smear China’: US officials dismiss assertions that Chinese balloon accidentally entered US airspace, saying ‘this was intentional’

“This is entirely an unexpected situation caused by force majeure and the facts are very clear. China always acts in strict accordance with international law and respects the sovereignty and territorial integrity of all countries. We have no intention to violate and has never violated the territory or airspace of any sovereign country.”

^^THIS^^ from the same country that plagued the global air with their bio-weapon three years ago, killing millions worldwide.

Misty Severi: Second suspected Chinese balloon spotted over Latin America

Peter Kasperowicz: US has ‘absolute legal right’ to shoot down Chinese spy balloon, say national security experts: U.S. officials say the balloon’s altitude is about 60,000 feet.

James H. Anderson: If Chinese spy balloon escapes US airspace, get ready for an even bigger disaster: The Chinese surveillance balloon should be shot down. If we don’t take action, we are sending a dangerous message to other rogue states

Michael Katz: Expert, retired Air Force Maj. David Stuckenberg, who once led the Defense Department’s EMP Task Force: Chinese Balloon Could Be Dry Run to Deliver Nuclear EMP Device

Stuckenberg, founder and chairman of the American Leadership & Policy Foundation, wrote in a 2015 paper that high-altitude balloons would be the easiest to resource, equip, and launch a nuclear device in the atmosphere that would act as an EMP and dismantle the U.S. power grid.

Specifically, an EMP is a brief burst of electromagnetic energy causing interference that can disrupt communications, fry electronics, and, at higher outputs, even damage such things as planes and buildings.

“Using a balloon as a [weapon of mass destruction/weapon of mass effect] platform could provide adversaries with a pallet of altitudes and payload options with which to maximize offensive effects against the U.S.,” Stuckenberg wrote.

Paul Bedard: Dry run: Balloons called top ‘delivery platform’ for nuclear EMP attack

I’d go one further. China never does anything small. A duel attack of EMPs to cripple us and in tandem with balloons loaded with bio-weapons to disperse over the populations with deadly viruses via airborne and water/food contaminations. With these current balloons invading Canada’s airspace and also Latin America it would be a huge attack.

Friday “Weekend Reads” Newsfeed: Bad Moon Rising?

No, worse. A Chinese high altitude spy balloon that is currently navigating over the northern states. It apparently came in over Alaska, flew into Canada and then came down over the north midwestern states. The above photo is a photo taken by a citizen of Billings, Montana. He says in the video it’s not the moon because the moon is at his opposite side.

Allegedly Biden said to shoot it down but the military brass advised against it … “overruled by generals”. It’s supposedly flying higher than air lanes in “international air space”. Hmmm? Doesn’t look that high up to me. Pentagon was worried about debris falling to the ground if we intercepted it. Montana. It’s friggin’ Montana. Loads of open spaces.

The balloon has been flying over our military bases and silos…

There’s no damn way this thing is just aimlessly floating around out there. If we can manipulate and navigate drones remotely from many miles away so can the CCP’s military.

This is a picture of a couple of our military jets circling the spy balloon…

Let me just point out that all it would take to fuck up our country is just an EMP detonation over a key area of our power grid. That, or maybe another bio-weapon dispersion over a big city or into farmlands or into the water supply. Don’t scoff. The Japanese in WWII considered using such a balloon delivery system for the atom bomb they were working on while we were working on ours. They did manage to deliver conventional bombs with a balloon, killing an adult woman and five children in Oregon in May 1945.

God, help us…

And word early this morning is Canada is reporting they’ve spotted a second balloon.

Anyhow, pretty sure they publicly addressed this yesterday so that some civilian would take it down with a drone so that the military under Biden won’t have to. Second thought, I wonder if the military/CIA are looking for somebody (Chinese spy/operative) that might be navigating this and any other such crafts inside our country or in Canada, and want it to continue in order to pinpoint that person(s)? China has not officially claimed responsibility for the balloon(s). However, China is calling the balloon a “civilian airship” used for “research” … uh-huh. Yeah, I guess that’s one way to cover your ass.

Matt Margolis: China Makes Admission About Suspected Spy Balloon, But There’s a Catch: On Friday, the People’s Republic of China officially acknowledged that the balloon device seen over the northern United States is really Chinese—but denied any sinister intentions… … THIS from the same CCP government that considers/deems any foreigner in their country a “spy” and throws them in prison for bullshit reasons.

But still, what the actual fuck is going on here? Meh, don’t answer that…

Joe Schoffstall: Biden took out $250K line of credit against Delaware beach home amid Hunter probe, classified docs scandal. Biden made the financial move in early December, filings show

By late afternoon yesterday the Hunter lawyers were clumsily walking back their obvious admission of the laptop and contents were their client’s. But the threats still continued…

Jonathan Turley: Hunter Biden’s legal threats have no merit — and raise serious constitutional and political questions

The laptop’s legal status is also key. To all appearances, Hunter abandoned the laptop at John Paul Mac Isaac’s Wilmington, Del., computer repair shop. That’s different from the claims of Hunter’s sister, Ashley, who triggered a nationwide FBI investigation into the theft of her diary. While she left her diary at a third party’s home, she insists she did not abandon or forget it. Under standard terms of the agreement, an item left beyond a certain number of days at a business or rental housing becomes abandoned property. It can generally then be left on the curb, sold, or given away.

What’s most striking about the Hunter Biden claim is the delay. For more than two years, Hunter has refused to admit the laptop is genuine despite email recipients confirming the content of the communications. The laptop also shows Hunter engaged in potential crimes from drug use to prostitution offenses. Yet he insisted it might all be those pesky Russians again.

Now the laptop is his, and he is fighting mad. Indeed, he’s shocked that anyone would treat his property in this fashion — a property he left at a computer shop and failed to claim for years.

In the effort to target Marco Polo, the Biden team insists it “has operated as little more than a thinly disguised political operation to attack the Biden administration and the Biden family.” That sounds more vindictive than virtuous. Indeed, if the Biden administration started yanking the tax-exempt status of Biden critics, it would trigger an outcry over weaponizing the IRS. (A similar controversy during the Obama-Biden administration involving IRS official Lois Lerner led to a financial settlement with targeted conservative groups.)…

Tucker (who’s a target for the Hunter lawyers) has got it in a nutshell…

Inland border patrol checkpoints vital for stemming the tide of drugs and illegal migrants into the country have been closed for months as officers are diverted to admin duties, sources told The Post.

“You’re keeping the agents from doing their job; that’s how drugs fan out to other places,” Arizona’s Yuma County Supervisor Martin Porchas told The Post noting how three roadside checkpoints in the area are shuttered.

“That has an impact on the whole United States because drugs, once they pass the checkpoints, that’s it.”

The checkpoints are stationed 25 to 100 miles north of the US-Mexico border and act as a second line of defense. Sources explained how once people smugglers or drug runners make it past the international border they start to let their guard slip and an extra checkpoint can often catch them out…

“It’s bulls–t,” Bonfilio Solis, 43, fumed Wednesday. “These migrants expect benefits from the government and aren’t appreciating what they’re being given. They’re being very disrespectful.” …

“I’ve been here 30 years. I never got nothing from the government but I busted my ass and now I own my own construction company,” he said. “My first job in America was washing dishes in a restaurant, then a waiter, then I got a job in construction and worked my way up to foreman.”

Solis added: “To see these guys sitting here, expecting everything to be given to them with no effort — it’s not fair to other migrants that are willing to work and are working for a better future.”

“They’ve been given shelter in Brooklyn but they won’t take it because they expect an expensive hotel room. It’s not right,” he said. “It gives migrants a bad name.”

Seriously, it’s kind of like a jewelry store smash-and-grab thief complaining the diamonds and gold he stole aren’t of a higher quality. And by the way, I thought these illegals’ defense for coming here illegally was to escape poor living conditions in their own country. The facility they’re to move to is doubtless of higher quality than what was left behind in their own country… unless it was the prison their governments quite possibly/probably released them from to come here. Yeah, I said it.

Meanwhile, the NGO’s that have been enabling this Biden wide open border invasion these last couple of years have apparently been joined by activists who’ve been instigating these men to stay on the sidewalk at the hotel and refuse to move to the facility that’s been set up for them. The hotel was cleared of these able bodied single male illegals so that other immigrants, women and children families, could be set up in the hotel rooms…

NYPost: Don’t blame the migrants, blame the lefty activists filling them with nonsense

Why do the adult male migrants now refusing to give up on their luxury accommodations at the Watson Hotel in Hell’s Kitchen act and sound suspiciously like American activists on the same issue?

Because activists are deeply involved in the standoff itself — and with the larger effort to ramp up illegal migration, leaving Mayor Eric Adams (and others) to deal with the resulting humanitarian catastrophe.

Like Sergio Tupac Uzurin, an activist with NYC ICE Watch who’s been front and center protesting the migrant move. He claims that some migrants who saw the Brooklyn facility they’re being moved to called it a “refugee camp.”

Wow, that’s the exact same term used by lefty critics of Adams’ other migrant facilities. What a coincidence!

And though the only rent-payers on the hook for migrant accommodations are New York’s taxpayers, a “cancel rent” banner — a motto of progressive groups like Housing Justice for All — somehow hung at the protest site…

You see, the crisis was not our crisis, it was their’s. The MAGA agenda posed an existential threat to the power and control of the Deep State bureaucracy, illegitimately accrued over the course of a century.

Tuesday Newsfeed: Nobody Here But Us Chickens…

The would-be cock-of-the-walk in the White House is completely failing to guard and protect the hen house that is this nation. Not only has he destroyed everything from his desk but he has allowed … and encouraged … several million foxes to invade the yard to roam free and do what they want pretty much unfettered while aiding and abetting their invasion, and at our cost on every level.

Just what “We THE People” needed in this country, another entitlement class living off the hardworking American dime.

These are all single … military age and abled … males. No children or women. They refuse to move from this once elaborate $500 a night hotel to the facility furnished for them with tax dollars— Oh, by the way, these guys have been pretty much trashing this hotel, literally trashing the food and supplies that they’ve been given, have been intoxicated and even reportedly having sex in the hallways (I suppose with local prostitutes or whatever). So, after finally being booted out the doors of The Watson Hotel, they have defiantly made their own homeless encampment near the entranceway.

Their reason for refusing to go to the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal in Red Hook? The illegal alien men say ‘it is too much like a prison’ … which tells me something about the background(s) of these guys that broke our immigration laws to enter our sovereign country, and quite possibly/probably have broken more since getting here. And, apparently, those oh-so-helpful NGOs that continue to encourage all of this broken open border invasion are telling these guys not to go to the facility in Brooklyn Cruise Terminal. These NGOs seriously need investigating. These facilities and accommodations, free of charge from these illegals, are meant to be temporary until they get their legal status in-order and then get a damn job and start paying their own way. Obviously this is not the goal of these invading squatters.

These illegals need a damn plane ticket back to where they came from with more than one Air Marshal on board the flights. Go the f**k home!

Jonathan Turley: Forget classified docs, show us the real haul of Biden’s records in Delaware

There has been much discussion of a classified document being found in his personal library in Wilmington, but there is a huge library of Biden documents sitting in the University of Delaware. The university is sitting on Biden documents due to a cynical 2012 arrangement made by Biden when he was vice president and contemplating a run for the presidency.

The president effectively locked away his records by giving them to the university, which has claimed for a decade that it is still working to organize and catalog the documents. He has refused to allow the public or the press to see the documents. With the recent reports that Biden may have included classified information in notebooks found at his residence, the status of the University of Delaware documents is becoming more and more untenable for the White House.

University ‘lockbox’

The University of Delaware has been used for years to shield potentially embarrassing documents from public review for the Biden family, including allegations that the president engaged in sexual harassment or assault as a member of the Senate. The university effectively agreed to serve as a type of lock box for the Bidens to prevent a review of his senatorial records as he ran for higher office.

At great public cost, the university has fought efforts by the media and the public to allow access to the documents. It is a troubling position for any institution of higher education to fight access to historical materials . . . for years.

Now, however, there is growing concern that the files may not only include incriminating information on past sexual-assault allegations but actual classified information. There is already confirmation that Biden removed classified information from the Senate more than 14 years ago. It now appears he also may have transferred classified information from briefings and documents to his notebooks. That raises the question of whether such information is contained in the notebooks and papers housed at the university.

If President Biden is ready to embrace transparency, he can start by finally dropping his opposition to any review of his senatorial documents. At a minimum, the FBI should request access to determine if his violation of classified rules extends to this mountain of material given to the university…
