What the heck is going on now? I’m starting to think we’re in for some big invasion from China or something, with all these “UFOs” flying around. Today, another sank over Lake Huron in Michigan. But then I started thinking that this was just a big old “protest plot” by the government to keep us all occupied and “looking up” while some truly scandalous things went unnoticed.
Things like this give the media something to focus on without talking about Hunter Biden, the Nordtrim pipeline explosion, Twitter working with the FBI to silence Americans, and Joe’s classified documents scandal…among other things.
But, we still want to keep you aware of what is (supposedly) going on Hopefully we can walk and chew at the same time, right?
From the Daily Star:
US Air Force F-35 fighter pilots dispatched to intercept the mysterious object in Alaska on Friday said whatever it was “interfered with their aircraft’s sensors” before they shot it down.
Three unidentified objects have been spotted over North America in the past 10 days. First, a giant airship “the size of three buses” is believed to have originated in China, although the US and Chinese governments disagree about its exact purpose.
Although the Pentagon says it was a spy balloon, China says the monster airship was a civilian craft designed to monitor weather systems — but even if that turns out to be correct, two small objects spotted over the US in recent days remain unexplained.
CNN’s Natasha Bertrand reports that the USAF pilots who shot down the object in Alaska “couldn’t identify what they saw.
“When the United States first detected this object in Alaska on Thursday, they sent F-35 jets … to see what was going on,” he explained. “And these pilots reported very conflicting accounts”.
Pilots of sophisticated stealth fighters said that “this object was actually interfering with their aircraft’s sensors and they didn’t understand why, because the object had no detectable surveillance equipment,” he said.
The pilots were also puzzled as to what kind of aircraft they were actually dealing with.
According to Bertrand, the pilots “were saying that they could not see anything in the object that seemed capable of moving it, that there was no way it could actually be in the air”.
It is possible that during the high-speed, high-altitude encounter the pilots misinterpreted the type of aircraft, which was described as “about the size of a small car”.
A Pentagon official told ABC News that the object was “cylindrical and silver-ish gray” and appeared “balloon-like” floating without “any kind of propulsion”.
Pentagon spokesman Brigadier General. Patrick Ryder said recovery teams are now collecting debris sitting on the ice in US territorial waters.
What do you do with this? A very detailed “distraction plot” or a real threat?
