Report: Biden Administration Delayed Sanctions
over Spy Balloon to ‘Limit Damage’
to China Ties

Reuters on Thursday reported that the Biden administration delayed issuing sanctions against China for sending its obnoxious alleged spy balloon across the continental United States because it feared angering Beijing and damaging the “U.S.-China relationship.” Reuters based its report on a trove of emails between Biden administration officials, plus four sources, to report that a soft touch was taken with China over the balloon, which President Joe Biden belatedly ordered shot down after it completed its alleged surveillance mission. These sources said the administration is still delaying the implementation of some punitive measures, including tougher export rules for Chinese telecom giant Huawei and sanctions against Chinese officials for abusing

sounds plausible but the real reason is that the Chicoms hadn't completed their full scale assessment of our military and civilian objectives they were looking at how dare they insult our intelligence by giving such a lame reason for committing Treason

Now we're getting a little closer to the truth. The fact that the Air Force was told not to shoot it down over open country that went on for miles and miles without seeing a single human being was the best they could do for an excuse to allow the balloon to complete its spy mission before taking it down. Even if that pile of cloth had hit a home directly, there would have been little damage. Biden lies, the military lies, the DOJ lies and all of the intel agencies lie. That is the America we now live in and Barack Obama, a foreigner, opened that door.

I suspect the "spy balloons" are red herrings designed to lure the U.S. into complacency......then one night one floats by. "Just another balloon"...... but this one is an EMP device that destroys the electrical grid for half of the country.

Yep! The HairSniffer did not want to offend his Chinese paymasters. "Can't shoot it down because it might land on a house"...... Bee Esss! Note that they had NO hesitation shooting down a second 'Object'.... they would not say what the second one was..... Turns out it was a hobby club balloon with a HAM radio repeater or something similar.

In an apparent escalation of Yevgeny Prigozhin's public feud with Vladimir Putin over his for-hire army, the leader of the Wagner mercenary group offered to sell out the locations of Russian troops to Ukrainian officials in exchange for their mercy on the battlefield, according to leaked intelligence documents. The Washington Post reported that US military intelligence documents allegedly shared on a Discord server by Jack Teixeira, a 21-year-old airman at a National Guard unit in Massachusetts, included a briefing on a January meeting between Prigozhin and unnamed Ukrainian officials where the Wagner leader made his desperate offer. In exchange for Ukrainians pulling back from the front lines of battle in Bakhmut,

As we reported, a federal judge in Florida on Thursday imposed a two-week temporary restraining order (TRO) on a Biden administration border policy just a few hours ahead of the expiration of public health measure Title 42. The outraged administration once again tried to undermine the nation’s judicial system, with Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre calling the ruling “sabotage”: “Let me just say on the ruling that you just laid out to me, um so look, the way we see that is sabotage,” she said.”It’s pure and simple, that’s how that reads to us.” Biden and his cohorts like Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) have a history of casting doubts

Cash App founder Bob Lee allegedly frequented underground sex and drug parties for San Francisco’s elite with the sister of his accused killer after an argument about her. Lee’s death was initially believed to be a case of random violence in a city where crime is soaring, but his friends suggested it was instead a result of the Cash App founder’s indulgent lifestyle among the upper echelon of Bay Area society where cocaine and swingers were common, the Wall Street Journal reports. Known in wealthy circles as “The Lifestyle,” Lee, 43, a father of two, allegedly enjoyed the city’s underground party scene, as did Khazar Momeni, wife of a prominent plastic

Following the airing of CNN’s town hall with former President Trump Wednesday evening, many bloviating pontificators in the liberal media registered their outrage at the network for daring to give the Republican candidate a platform. A surprising voice to register their disproval came from inside CNN’s house in the form of senior media reporter Oliver Darcy via the so-called “Reliable Sources” Newsletter. According to reporting from Puck News on Friday, CNN boss Chris Licht responded to Darcy’s insubordination by putting “the fear of God into him.” With the dust still settling from the rowdy event, Darcy clutched his pearls into diamonds as he fired off the newsletter proclaiming

Donald Trump’s CNN town hall on Wednesday night was viewed as a gift from the political gods inside Biden world. But within broader Democratic circles it fed a nagging and growing concern. Is the president’s team a touch too confident about a Trump-Biden rematch? For more than a year, White House aides and Joe Biden allies have beat the same drum about the coming election: The world doubted us before and we’ll prove them wrong again. That conviction has only been fortified by the last two years, in which major legislative strides and a better-than-expected midterm came in the face of routine skepticism. But as the campaign gears up,

Sherrod Brown is a stalwart progressive who doesn’t often partner with the likes of Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema. On the hot-button issue of immigration, though, the Ohio Democrat is siding with his caucus’ two most famous centrists. As the Biden administration deals with the expiration of its pandemic-era power to expel migrants at the southern border, Brown is signing onto a moderate proposal to extend that authority for two more years. Though he wants to see comprehensive immigration reform enacted, Brown said that “I don’t think you can get something comprehensive now, under the pressure of what’s happening at the border.”

WASHINGTON - Climate change does not pose such "significantly unique or material" financial stability risks that the Federal Reserve should treat it separately in its supervision of the financial system, Fed Governor Christopher Waller said on Thursday in a detailed rebuttal of demands for climate initiatives by the U.S. central bank. "Climate change is real, but I do not believe it poses a serious risk to the safety and soundness of large banks or the financial stability of the United States," Waller told an economic conference in Spain.

Portland mayor Ted Wheeler is pushing for a one-year freeze on nearly all planned or proposed increases in taxes, fees, and utility rates after receiving complaints from residents of the far-left Oregon city, which has one of the highest income tax rates in the country. Some business leaders have suggested that the high taxes may be driving people out of the city. “The bottom line for me is that Portlanders are overburdened,” Wheeler, a Democrat, told the Oregonian newspaper. He acknowledged that the freeze would require significant changes to his proposed $7.1 billion budget, including cuts and reductions to municipal services.

Why did CNN host a town hall with former President Trump? For the ratings, baby. The network has been in the ratings doldrums for so long that it decided Trump was the person to put them in the win column. He did. The town hall got a Tucker Carlson level rating with 3.3 million viewers. CNN was the most-watched cable news network of the evening and that hasn’t happened in years. Axios reports that on an editorial call with CNN employees Thursday morning, CEO Chris Licht defended the event. “It is our job to get those answers and hold him accountable,’ he said while acknowledging that covering Trump is “messy

Donald Trump’s “town hall” appearance on CNN last night has liberals gnashing their teeth. They don’t understand why CNN would give Trump a forum, they are appalled that the audience was in Trump’s corner, and they are frustrated that Trump dominated the event, with CNN’s Kaitlan Collins unable to keep Trump under control, let alone embarrass him. Inevitably, CNN’s host ignored the pressing issues of the day and went straight to what the Left really cares about, the 2020 election and Trump’s refusal to accept that Biden’s victory was legitimate (just as Hillary Clinton refused to accept that Trump’s 2016 victory was legitimate). This was Collins’s first question (from CNN’s transcript):

Specifically, the FBI is in possession of a 1023 form that includes supposed evidence and witness testimony to that effect. But while the FBI has not denied that they have the form, they have attempted to stonewall, claiming confidentiality concerns. Now, another roadblock has appeared. According to Comer, some witnesses have gone missing while others are in jail, and the FBI is refusing to assist in locating them.

Joe Biden is a born political panderer. It’s how he won the Democratic Party nomination, and it played a large role in his victory over Donald Trump. Telling people what they want to hear is a political skill that most politicians possess. But there may never have been a politician as adept and skilled as Joe Biden in pandering to voters based on their race, their gender, their sexual identity, or any other aspect of their personhood that can be sliced, diced, and pureed to create a message tailor-made for a particular Democratic constituency.

President Joe Biden was awarded an honorary doctorate degree from Howard University on Saturday for his "analytical intellect" and "popularity on both sides" – claims mocked by conservatives on Twitter and contradicted by recent polls. Dr. Wayne Frederick, the president of Howard University, introduced Biden with high praise at the school's 155th commencement on Saturday. "Admired for your sound analytical intellect and open embrace for all, your popularity on both sides of the aisle of the United States led to your illustrious reputation and outstanding service of 36 years as a Democratic senator from Delaware beginning at a tender age of 29," Frederick said of Biden.

The border is “secure” and Joe Biden has built the strongest economy in years. Just ignore the fact that inflation is costing us hundreds more dollars a month under Joe.This is why his approval rating is in the toilet.
