Americans are demanding answers from the Biden administration over the Chinese spy balloon. This balloon made its way over the Continental United States. According to most experts this balloon was collecting sensitive data about our country. Yet Biden did nothing until it was out over the Pacific Ocean.
We don’t even know what data communist China collected on us.
But it looks like the problem is bigger than simply intelligence collection. Military officials revealed they were monitoring this spy balloon. And they are revealing it was fully loaded–with explosives.
Wow: Northcom chief Gen. VanHerck says the balloon was up to 200 ft tall, with a payload the size of a jetliner. It weighed “in excess of a couple thousand lbs” and potentially carried explosives ” to detonate and destroy the balloon.”

Uh… what? Gen. VanHerck revealed that the spy balloon had a “payload the size of a jetliner.” That means explosives. Lots of heavy explosives. But he then claims that was simply to destroy the balloon.
Are we really buying that? China sends a balloon, violating U.S. airspace, packed with bombs. Were these bombs really supposed to just self-destruct the spy balloon? Or was China up to something much worse? We already know they are testing balloons to carry missiles.
From The Drive:
Now a video has appeared that seems to show hypersonic glide vehicles being lifted aloft by a sounding balloon for high-altitude drop tests….
We can’t confirm with absolute certainty if this is in fact the case, but those wedge-shaped payloads look nearly identical to hypersonic vehicle shapes we have seen China working on in the past.
Was China testing out a balloon that can drop bombs onto U.S. cities? We don’t know for sure, but why are we taking a chance? We know it sent a balloon, loaded with explosives, over the U.S. Even if those bombs were just to destroy the balloon, they still posed a serious threat to the United States.
Or do you like the idea of China blowing up a spy balloon over your neighborhood?
This is a serious violation by a corrupt, Chinese government. And it requires a strong response from ours. A real leader would hit China with so many sanctions, they wouldn’t know what day it was. They would regret pulling this egregious and unacceptable scheme.
The question is, will China Joe Biden bother to do anything? Or should Congress move to relieve this compromised man from his duties and find someone who will actually protect us?
- Military officials revealed the Chinese spy balloon was packed with explosives.
- Recent reports show China is testing balloons that can carry missiles.
- This comes as Americans reel from Biden’s weak response to this shocking attack.
