False Flag? Or National Security Threat? Recent Shootdowns Make You Wonder

First it was a Chinese spy balloon that traversed the US near major military bases and should have been shot down the moment it hit US airspace.  Then it was a “cylindrical object” near Alaska, then another one over Canadian airspace, then on Sunday an “octagonal” object over Lake Huron. The first object had communication arrays in it that transmitted information back to Beijing. Is this a “false flag” and are they distracting us from something equally as important? Inquiring minds want to know.

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

The Chinese balloon, which actually “hovered” over US military installations, by the way, came from China and they admitted it. Although it was certainly not a “weather” balloon as they claimed. The other “unknown objects” may be something else entirely.

“A KC-135 Stratotanker from the 171st Air Refueling Wing was making orbits over the Great Lakes Sunday. …An E-3 Sentry AWACS from Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma was also flying over the area Sunday. … With the cooperation of the Federal Aviation Administration, North American Aerospace Command (NORAD) implemented a temporary flight restriction airspace over Lake Michigan at approximately 12 p.m. EST on Feb. 12, 2023 to ensure the safety of air trafficking the area during NORAD operations. The temporary flight restrictions have since been lifted.” North America Aerospace Command (NORAD)


So in the space of about a week, four objects, including a Chinese spy balloon were shot down over the United States. What happened during the last week? One concerning item is the Waters of the US Act.


The Federal government update their definitions under the Waters of the United States Act- (WOTUS). It’s an action which ripped open the anger and problems with the “navigable” waters issues in the US.

Democratic supporters of the rule have celebrated it as a return to certainty and environmental stewardship abandoned with the Trump-era WOTUS reforms.

Republicans meanwhile are hopeful the Supreme Court puts some new constraints on how widely the EPA and Army Corps of Engineers can sweep when defining the waters of the United States when it rules in Sackett v. EPA. In the meantime, they’re running their own campaign against the rule as the Biden administration just revised it.

House Transportation and Infrastructure devoted three hours to the matter last week in a hearing at which most of the witnesses, which included representatives from building and other trade associations, complained the new WOTUS rule is burdensome and compliance too costly. The Washington Examiner
