Catching-Up on Current Events


Reporting: Clayton Morris
The WEF in Davos last week spent much of their time laying out an energy agenda that will enrich the elites but destroy our way of life. While the West is intentionally crushing itself under sanctions, Russia and China are meanwhile solidifying a strong energy alliance that is becoming the envy of the world. The west is in real trouble.

Is this for real?


Tyre Nichols, a 29-year-old father, was on his way home from taking pictures of the sky on Jan. 7, when police pulled him over. He was just a few minutes from the home he shared with his mother and stepfather, when he was brutally attacked by five Memphis police officers. He died three days later at a hospital, and the officers have since been charged with second-degree murder and other offenses. Friends and family mourning the loss of Tyre Nichols reflect on his character: 'Everyone loved him' | Fox News

Chinese Spy Balloon Continues to Fly Near US Nuclear Field - Biden Refuses to Shoot It Down

A Chinese spy balloon is drifting over Montana while the Biden administration says it has no plans to shoot down the aircraft.

“The United States government has detected and is tracking a high-altitude surveillance balloon that is over the continental United States right now. 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,” Pentagon spokesperson Brigadier General Patrick Ryder said Thursday, according to Reuters.

President Joe Biden agreed with advice from military leaders not to shoot down the balloon. The leaders had cautioned that the debris could be a safety threat.

“We wanted to make sure we were coordinating with civil authorities to empty out the airspace around that potential area,” Reuters quoted an official it did not name as saying.

“But even with those protective measures taken, it was the judgment of our military commanders that we didn’t drive the risk down low enough. So we didn’t take the shot,” Reuters said it was told by the official.

Defense expert John Parachini estimated the balloon was as big as three buses.

Montana has a nuclear missile silo field at Malmstrom Air Force Base, according to The Washington Post.

In a letter sent Thursday to Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, Sen. Steve Daines, a Republican from Montana, wrote: “The fact that this balloon was occupying Montana airspace creates significant concern that Malmstrom Air Force Base and the United States’ intercontinental ballistic missile fields are the target of this intelligence gathering mission.

“It is vital to establish the flight path of this balloon, any compromised U.S. national security assets, and all telecom or IT infrastructure on the ground within the U.S. that this spy balloon was utilizing,” the letter said, according to the Post.

Montana Gov. Greg Gianforte said in a statement he was heartily sick of Chinese intrusions.

“From the spy balloon to the Chinese Communist Party spying on Americans through TikTok to CCP-linked companies buying American farmland, I’m deeply troubled by the constant stream of alarming developments for our national security,” Gianforte said, per the Post.

The New York Times said the balloon came from China across the Aleutian Islands and through northwestern Canada before reaching Montana. The Times quoted an official it did not name as saying the balloon has limited intelligence-gathering values given that China has spy satellites monitoring America.

Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Mao Ning said China was in the process of “verifying” the situation.

“I would like to emphasize that until the facts are clarified, speculation and hype will not be helpful to the proper resolution of the issue,” she said, according to Reuters.

The incident comes as Secretary of State Antony Blinken will travel to China next week.

Chinese spokesman is claiming its there "due to force majeure" (a superior or irresistable force):

The People's Republic of China confirmed Friday that the balloon craft floating over the northern United States is Chinese.

"The airship is from China. It is a civilian airship used for research, mainly meteorological, purposes," a Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson confirmed Friday. "Affected by the Westerlies and with limited self-steering capability, the airship deviated far from its planned course."

The spokesperson said China regrets the incident.

The statement continued, "The Chinese side regrets the unintended entry of the airship into US airspace due to force majeure. The Chinese side will continue communicating with the US side and properly handle this unexpected situation caused by force majeure."

BREAKING NEWS: Chinese spy balloon likely gathering intel for EMP attack

The Washington Examiner is quoting sources within the intelligence community who say the Chinese balloon floating over America from west to east is likely on a mission to collect intel that would aid the Chinese in launching an EMP attack.

It could even be a dry run of sorts.

“High-altitude balloons, such as the one China has floated over mountain state military bases this week, are considered a key ‘delivery platform’ for secret nuclear strikes on America’s electric grid, according to intelligence officials,” the Examiner reports, adding:

Spy balloons, used by Japan to drop bombs during World War II, are now far more sophisticated, can fly at up to 200,000 feet, evade detection, and can carry a small nuclear bomb that, if exploded in the atmosphere, would shut down the grid and wipe out electronics in a many-state-wide area.

The threat of balloon-launched electromagnetic pulse attacks was warned about by a congressional EMP commission and inside the military several years ago.

I have gone on the record over the last year and a half saying that a Chinese/Russian attack on America is on the shelf and being seriously considered.

The balloon is no longer over Montana. It is now over the middle of America. Of course our military leaders act as if they are paralyzed by fear and incompetence. See video below.

After the Russia-Ukraine war broke out one year ago and the West responded in all the wrong ways, I personally was convinced that the globalists have already decided to bring World War III into being. The Chinese and their traitorous allies within the Western governments, especially the U.S., E.U., Australia and Canada, are going to launch this war and there is nothing we can do to stop them. I believe it would likely start with an EMP attack. That’s why the below article in today’s Washington Examiner is huge breaking news. The writer cites the research of the late Peter Pry, who died in August 2022 and was the world’s pre-eminent authority on EMP attacks.

By Paul Bedard, Washington Secrets columnist

High-altitude balloons, such as the one China has floated over mountain state military bases this week, are considered a key “delivery platform” for secret nuclear strikes on America’s electric grid, according to intelligence officials.

Spy balloons, used by Japan to drop bombs during World War II, are now far more sophisticated, can fly at up to 200,000 feet, evade detection, and can carry a small nuclear bomb that, if exploded in the atmosphere, would shut down the grid and wipe out electronics in a many-state-wide area.

The threat of balloon-launched electromagnetic pulse attacks was warned about by a congressional EMP commission and inside the military several years ago. (This commission was chaired by Dr. Peter Pry).

In a 2015 report for the American Leadership & Policy Foundation, Air Force Maj. David Stuckenberg, one of the nation’s leading EMP experts, wrote extensively about the threat balloons carrying bombs pose to national security.

“Using a balloon as a WMD/WME platform could provide adversaries with a pallet of altitudes and payload options with which to maximize offensive effects against the U.S.,” he wrote in the report.

“A high altitude balloon could be designed, created, and launched in a matter of months. There is nothing to prevent several hundred pounds of weapons material from being delivered to altitude,” he added.

On Friday, he told Secrets, “China’s recent balloon flyover of the United States is clearly a provocative and aggressive act. It was most likely a type of dry run meant to send a strategic message to the USA. We must not take this for granted.”

Now in the private sector, Stuckenberg, a national security expert and scientist who led the Defense Department’s EMP Task Force and chairman of the American Leadership & Policy Foundation, pointed to Japan’s World War II “Project Fugo” that targeted the U.S. with balloon bombs as an example of the threat. “Not since WWII has North America faced a threat of this nature. Project FuGo in Japan used balloons to float bombs on the trade-winds across the Pacific to the U.S. and Canada,” he told Secrets.

EMP experts have warned that China, North Korea, Russia, and Iran have programs to hit the U.S. grid with electromagnetic pulse weapons that would cut the cord for a year or longer. A congressional report has warned that a blackout that long could result in millions of deaths.

Stuckenberg cited the research of the late Peter Pry, who headed a congressional commission on EMP and reported on the potential of a balloon-launched attack.

REMINDER: Japanese Used Balloons to Disseminate Chemical and Biological Weapons in World War II

A NOAA air current model shows the China spy balloon is expected to traverse the United States heartland through the Midwest and Southern states on Friday before heading out to the Atlantic Ocean passing over the U.S. Navy base at Newport News, Virginia, via Kristinn Taylor.

Joe Biden refused to shoot down the balloon, however Secretary of State Antony Blinken cancelled a planned trip to Beijing in protest.

The NOAA Hysplit Model released this model for its trajectory on Friday afternoon.

Author and researcher Dr. Andrew Huff tweeted out a reminder on Friday that the Japanese used balloons in World War II to disseminate chemical and biological weapons.

The Fu-Go balloons were used by Japan in World War II.

Via Wikipedia.

Fu-Go was an incendiary balloon weapon (風船爆弾, fūsen bakudan, lit. “balloon bomb”) deployed by Japan against the United States during World War II. A hydrogen balloon measuring 10 metres (33 ft) in diameter, it carried a payload of two 11-pound (5.0 kg) incendiary devices plus one 33-pound (15 kg) anti-personnel bomb (or alternatively one 26-pound (12 kg) incendiary bomb), and was intended to start large forest fires in the Pacific Northwest.

Between November 1944 and April 1945, the Japanese launched about 9,300 balloons from sites on Honshu, of which about 300 were found or observed in the U.S., with some in Canada and Mexico.[1] The balloons traveled on high-altitude and high-speed currents over the Pacific Ocean, today known as the jet stream, and used a sophisticated ballast system to control altitude on their three-day flight. Despite high hopes for the operation, the bombs were largely ineffective due to damp conditions and malfunctions, causing only minor damage and six deaths (from a single civilian incident in Oregon in May 1945). The Fu-Go balloon bomb was the first weapon to possess intercontinental range, with its flights being the longest-ranged attacks in the history of warfare at the time.

But then again, it’s not like the Chinese would develop a deadly virus and spread it around the world. That would never happen. Right?

Another Chinese spy balloon is transiting Latin America, Pentagon says

'Derelict balloon adrift!' Chinese spy balloon is flying just 7,000ft above air traffic as private jet files close encounter report in Missouri - while Pentagon probes what intelligence it could've harvested from Montana nuclear site

The Chinese spy balloon which has triggered a diplomatic crisis between Beijing and Washington was floating over Missouri on Friday afternoon - as pilots reported sightings of it just a few thousand feet above their aircraft.

Images posted by the National Weather Service in Kansas City, MO, showed an unidentified balloon flying over the state which is believed to be the Chinese surveillance device. The balloon was previously above Montana, where officials feared it could be attempting to gather intelligence on nuclear missile sites.

A report from the crew of a Cessna Citation private jet on Friday afternoon said they observed a 'derelict balloon adrift' while cruising at 43,000 feet near Kansas City. They said the balloon was floating at around 50,000 feet, which could cause safety concerns among aviation officials.

Military and defense officials previously said the balloon was floating at around 60,000 feet and doesn't pose a threat to civilians or civil aviation.

Meanwhile, Secretary of State Antony Blinken has postponed a planned visit to China following the detection of the balloon, which Beijing has said is a civilian airship that blew off course - a claim rejected by the Pentagon.
