Biden Is All Excuses About Shooting Down Stuff

It has been a full two weeks since the Chinese spy balloon was first spotted and reported on in Montana. Two. Weeks. And only now is Joe Biden formally addressing the issue.

Hmmm, he gave a whole speech not too long ago… it was so memorable… oh yes, the State of the Union. In that speech, he obliquely brought up the spy balloon by saying this:

But make no mistake: as we made clear last week, if China’s threatens our sovereignty, we will act to protect our country. And we did.”

As we have since learned, that was a joke, as U.S. intelligence saw this balloon AT LAUNCH and didn’t do jack squat when it came into American air space. We got all the excuses in the book about how it wasn’t safe to shoot down the balloon – until public pressure was so great that it was popped off the coast of South Carolina. How do we know it was public pressure? Because the administration has been shooting EVERYTHING ELSE DOWN – over Alaska, over the Yukon, and over Lake Huron.

As we just heard from Joe Biden, those three unidentified slow moving objects that they blasted out of the sky? Yeah, probably not spy apparatus.

Man, someone should have made some rules about when to shoot things down. Maybe someone can get on that now.

Moving forward, Biden says the administration will establish an inventory of unmanned aerial objects above the U.S. airspace, implement measures to improve the capacity to detect these objects, update rules and regulations for launching and maintaining objects and the Secretary of State will “help establish common global norms in this largely unregulated space.”

The internal polls and the bipartisan complaints must have been hellaciously bad for the Biden administration to sign off on shooting whatever random slow-moving crap was in the air. Wow. But now on to the Chinese spy balloon, which the military COULD have popped while it was over the Aleutian Islands, or over Alaska (the argument about shooting anything down over Alaska was made moot by then shooting down something over Alaska just days later)… so what is Biden’s explanation for it?

Speaking about the Chinese spy craft, Biden said, “We waited until it was safely over water, which would not only protect civilians, but also enable us to recover substantial components for further analytics.”

“And then we shot it down, sending a clear message, clear message. The violation of our sovereignty is unacceptable. We will act to protect our country. And we did,” Biden said.”

Call me crazy, but allowing the spy balloon to continue floating across America, taking all the pictures it wanted and doing who knows what with them, and THEN shooting it down over the Atlantic Ocean, is hardly the “AMERICA, F*** YEAH!” moment that Biden is trying to sell here.

Which is probably fine for Biden, because he’s just trying to get through this speech and then get the hell out of there before someone asks an actual question…

The question that got the reaction out of Biden was asking about his family’s business interests in China. That provoked Biden’s signature “give me a break, man,” before he told the one reporter to come to his office later. And then he shuffles off slowly like the doddering old man that he is. But HEY, at least he isn’t past his prime, right, Don Lemon?? Eeesh.

So, does everyone feel better about what happened? Intelligence tracked the spy balloon from launch, Team Biden decided to leave it alone and hope that no one would notice, people noticed, and then Team Biden had to get tough and SHOOT ANYTHING THAT MOVES SLOWLY in the air. After all, the Biden administration has ALWAYS carefully thought through firing off missiles at suspicious targets, right? They have NEVER shot off a weapon in response to looking weak and ineffective, EVER. I mean, better random science and weather balloons than launching a drone at an innocent family in Kabul, you know?
