Schumer Says U.S. Officials Believe UFOs Shot Down Over Alaska And Canada Were Balloons | Eastern North Carolina Now

Publisher's Note: Following this noteworthy and infamous story regarding the Chinese Spy Balloon caper, an inarguable embarrassment for the feckless Biden Administration, will be this series of posts, an archival history, chronicling the Misinformational Misadventure that wholly embarrassed this leader of the Democratic Socialists' Authoritarian regime.

    U.S. officials believe the unidentified flying objects (UFO) spotted over the United States and Canada over the past couple days are balloons, the Senate's top Democrat said Sunday morning.

    Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) told ABC News's George Stephanopoulos he discussed the situation with National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan on Saturday night.

    "They believe they were, yes," Schumer told the anchor of "This Week" when asked to confirm whether the objects shot down over Alaska and Canada were balloons.

    Schumer added that these objects were "much smaller" than the balloon shot down off the coast of South Carolina last weekend, and were flying at a lower altitude of about 40,000 feet, endangering commercial aircraft.

    With salvage operations underway, Schumer said U.S. military and intelligence officials are focused on gathering and accumulating information. A "comprehensive analysis" will follow, the senator said.

    Schumer also claimed the United States only recently discovered these flying objects. "Until a few months ago we didn't know about these balloons," he said.

    Another UFO appears to have been detected over Montana late Saturday.

    North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) detected what it called a "radar anomaly," leading to a temporary flight restriction over the central part of the state. But a fighter aircraft sent to investigate "did not identify any object to correlate" the radar hits and the restriction was lifted, NORAD added.

    The only UFO the U.S. military has publicly identified is the one shot down off the coast of South Carolina last weekend.

    That vessel, the U.S. officials say, was a Chinese spy balloon that flew at a high altitude - away from commercial aircraft - across a wide swath of the United States. China claims the airship was a weather balloon that had been blown off course.

    Authorities in China said they witnessed a UFO off the coast of a port city, a state-run newspaper claimed on Sunday. "Local maritime authorities in East China's Shandong Province announced on Sunday that they had spotted an unidentified flying object in waters near the coastal city of Rizhao in the province and were preparing to shoot it down, reminding fishermen to be safe via messages," said a tweet from the Global Times.

Among the many other lackluster performance standards by the Biden Administration - the most recent, allowing the Chinese Spy Balloon unfettered access to the skies above this Sovereign Republic - Joe Biden's foreign policy is considered by most true experts to be mediocre to abysmal at best. If one were to give a fair assessment of the quality of this apex duty of this Executive Branch: What would be your opinion of the Biden Administration's Foreign Policy initiatives and, or obvious faux pas?
  President Biden is a Foreign Policy expert of consummate skill just like his brother, Jim, and his son, Hunter.
  America's First Idiot President is corruptly committed to making the World far less safe, while surrendering OUR United States of America's sovereignty whenever, wherever possible.
  Mr. Biden is MY President because I pay close attention to only what rewards me, thus demanding as little sacrifice as is my nature to offer, or shrug.
