Biden finally addresses aerial objects shootdowns in White House Speech




  • President Joe Biden has finally addressed the three unmanned aerial objects that were shot down by the U.S. military over the weekend.
  • Biden said they were “most likely tied to private companies, recreation or research institutions”
  • The president added that “Nothing right now suggests that they were related to China’s spy balloon program.”

President Joe Biden has finally broken his silence on Thursday regarding the three unmanned aerial objects that the U.S. military shot down over the weekend.

Biden said the aerial objects were “most likely tied to private companies, recreation or research institutions,” and were not connected to the giant Chinese surveillance balloon that was shot down on Feb. 4.

“We don’t yet know what these three objects were, but nothing right now suggests that they were related to China’s spy balloon program or that they were surveillance vehicles from any other country,” Biden said at the White House.

Biden addressed the issue days after receiving mounting pressure from both Democrats and Republicans in Congress, who insisted the American people deserved to hear from the president. 

The president explained that after the massive Chinese balloon was shot down, US military defense radars raised their sensitivity levels “to pick up more slow-moving objects above our country and around the world.”

“In doing so, they tracked three unidentified objects, in Alaska, Canada and over Lake Huron in the Midwest,” he said.

Biden added that he ordered to take down these three aerial objects “due to hazards to civilian commercial air traffic, and because we could not rule out the surveillance risk over sensitive facilities.”

The White House said it had recovered key surveillance technology from the Chinese balloon. “What we learn will strengthen our capabilities,” Biden added.

It was not clear whether any debris from the three aerial objects had been recovered.

Last week, the US announced new sanctions on six Chinese military and aerial technology firms for their alleged involvement in China’s global aerial surveillance program.

Beijing announced Thursday its intent to levy sanctions against major U.S. defense contractors in apparent retaliation for the US sanctions.


In his speech, Biden sought to lower tensions between the world’s two largest economies.

“We seek competition, not conflict with China,” said the president. “We’re not looking for a new Cold War … we will compete and will we responsibly manage that competition so that it doesn’t veer into conflict.”

Biden said he expected to speak with Chinese President Xi Jinping and “get to the bottom” of the spy balloon incident.

The Chinese spy balloon was first detected in American airspace off of Alaska on Jan. 28. It was struck down on Feb. 4 off the coast of South Carolina.

Biden said that shooting down the balloon sent “a clear message that the violation of our sovereignty was unacceptable. We’ll act to protect our country and we did.”

Biden vowed to keep better track of unmanned aerial objects.

“These steps will lead to safer and more secure skies for our air travelers, our military, our scientists and for people on the ground as well,” Biden added. “That’s my job as your president and commander in chief.”

    More BS, lies and abject stupidity from an unsurprising source: The Lips of Idiocracy. First, they don’t yet know where these three objects came from? if, and this is a really big if, that is true, then we still have a military wing that is as slow as the thought process in the WH. And secondly, if the objects were from a company or research institute well enough financed to be able to put them in the sky, and they haven’t fessed up to being the owners, we have yet another problem. Either way, certainly by this time, the presiding puppet should know what they were and who put them there. His response of “I donno” is what I expect to get from my dog and cats when something gets mysteriously broken. Huh, guess I just answered my own question.

    He wants to keep our air space safe but won’t keep the borders safe as he said that’s his job as president and commander in chief.

    I had to click. It said that Biden finally addressed the elephant in the room. Considering the White House is currently home to an elephant herd made up of ten or twelve elephants, I just wanted to know which one the Traitor in Chief was addressing.

    They keep calling the balloon they shot down a spy balloon. They still don’t know what it was. You have no control over where a balloon goes when you turn it loose. If it flew over the US, it was because the wind blew it that way. The Chinese cannot control which direction the wind blows. We will probably never know if it was a weather balloon like the Chinese said, because they will never tell us. I hopethey are extra careful what they shoot down and not start a war with some country because of something like that. I hope Biden understands that if he makes China mad enough, Hunter will not get any more millions and neither will the “big guy”.

    More of Biden’s intentional destruction of our extremely expensive military defense missile supply. At four hundred thousand dollars a pop, just shoot em up at working peoples tax dollar expense. All these ballons could have been taken down out of the sky, and investigated with far less money, with far less commotion, with far less paranoia, and mostly with far less hysterical drama than these fucking idiot democrats display. Just keep in mind that any type of dramatic event that these conniving Biden administration criminals are involved with is realistically a distraction for a hidden agenda that they’re actually up to. So what is that scrawny little weasel up to now?

    “We don’t yet know what these three objects were, …”
    It only follows that also we don’t know what these 3 objects were NOT.
    So much ignorance, so little knowledge.
