"It's Not Just About Finance"

Saturday Rant…Spy Balloons?

The recent news about a Chinese Spy Balloon crossing over America and Canada is reminiscent of the science fiction series “The Outer Limits” circa 1963.

Back then, the series – in black and white – was soooo cheesy that you had to laugh at many of the episodes.


And laughing is what the Chinese are doing right now based on the reports we’re hearing from US weather bureaus – who are told what to say by the goof balls in DC.

Seriously, a big white balloon in the upper atmosphere is somehow a threat to Americans and Canadians?


Don’t they have advanced surveillance cameras – and air force bases – that supposedly detect “Spy Balloons” before they get in our air space?

And this is like the cameras on Mars that depict life forms and clear images on the surface, while security cameras on planet earth somehow can only come up with a blurry image of a bank robber.

Having said that we’ll turn today’s rant over to a reader who goes by the handle:  BigCumulusClouds

So, take it away BCC…

This entire Spy Balloon thing is total BS.

The next thing we’ll hear is that Chinese are covering the USA with balloons to block out the sun…LOL!

Supposedly, this “Spy Balloon” conveniently blew over the missile silos.

So, does the balloon have steering capabilities?

And how is it that if it could not be seen by the DOD, how did they come up with a map of how it got here?

So, do we now have an $800 billion dollar defense budget that was defeated by a balloon?

Pretty soon, the next balloon will have Google ads on it.

Bottom Line?

This is another non-story distraction for something happening in Washington DC.


And while we’re on the Chinese spy subject, what about that creepy California democrat rep., Eric Swalwell who notably banged an alleged Chinese spy who helped him fundraise in 2014.

After an FBI briefing on the woman, Swalwell said he cut all ties with the woman – Christine Fang, also known as Fang Fang.

And Fang Fang probably got more info out of Swalwell than any stupid Spy Balloon.

Last week Speaker of the House McCarthy officially rejected Reps. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) and Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) for seats on the House Intelligence committee by saying:

“Swalwell can’t get a security clearance in the private sector. I’m not going to give him a government security clearance”


But now we’re focusing on a balloon?

As I said before…it’s all BS.
