WH Latest Remarks About 'Objects' to Governors Sparking Jokes, Questions

At this point, I’m beginning to think that the White House has become a parody of itself because no one can be this incompetent and clueless.

They still have no idea what the three objects they shot down are, but they’re perfectly willing to tell us they’re “benign” and no threat (without telling us how they know this). Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) said that he was told in a briefing of Senate lawmakers that there were “many” of these unidentified objects, what was different was that now they were shooting them down. He said if they aren’t a threat, “How do they know that?” He chastised the Biden team, “We need more transparency…now that this cow is out of the barn.”


Naturally, that has some people thinking aliens, given the descriptions by some of the pilots as well as Gen. VanHerck about not knowing what the propulsion system was and VanHerck then saying he wouldn’t rule anything out including aliens.

But now the Biden team, in an effort to scotch the alien speculation, is saying something else that’s earning them mockery and raising some more questions.

In a virtual meeting with governors on Monday, White House Homeland Security Adviser Liz Sherwood-Randall told them during a half-hour call it wasn’t aliens.

“There are no UFOs. This is not an invasion of the aliens,” White House Homeland Security Adviser Liz Sherwood-Randall told governors on the half-hour call. “I mean it’s funny, but it’s not funny, because people are communicating this on platforms that are widely viewed, and it’s creating fear that is unnecessary.” [….]

“We are dealing with a number of objects that are not well characterized,” Sherwood-Randall told governors on Monday.

“It’s true that there are things that are being identified that don’t resemble anything else, that largely don’t present a threat, and we have to figure out what to do about them. And it turns out, there are hundreds, if not thousands, of them.”

Most of the objects are likely innocuous, Sherwood-Randall added, ranging from “used car lot balloons” to aircraft launched by commercial enterprises.


Car lot balloons? We just spent $400,000 per missile to shoot down car lot balloons? That truly would be the capper for the incompetence of the Biden administration.

The Biden team said they are going to be establishing an “interagency task force” to study what the objects are this week. But the descriptions varied from “cylindrical” about the two over Alaska and the Yukon, to “octagonal” for the one over Lake Huron. They were all far smaller than the Chinese spy balloon that was shot down off the Carolinas.

Of course, they’re just handing us gas at this point, since they haven’t recovered the objects yet, so they can’t say what they are. But while we certainly want the military to protect the nation, they should also know what the heck they are shooting down and if they are a danger. Otherwise, this is just an exercise in Biden trying to appear tough by shooting down balloons.
