Senior Bloomberg reporter Jennifer Jacobs reported on Friday morning that Secretary of State Antony Blinken has canceled a planned visit to China in the wake of the discovery of a Chinese surveillance balloon in Montana.
Jacobs cited unnamed officials within the administration of far-left President Joe Biden who described the trip as being “postponed,” previously stating that Biden was considering whether to “postpone or cancel” the trip.
🚨Blinken’s trip to China is postponed.@SecBlinken was to have mtgs in Beijing next week in 1st such visit by top US diplomat in 5 years. But the presence of the balloon—which the Pentagon decided not to shoot down—led officials to decide that going now would send wrong signal.

If you shoot it down it probably releases another Wuhan virus.
Send James Bond up in a balloon to catch this one and he can jump in and commandeer it like Trump did with the SS in the Beast.
And Biden was asked about the balloon and ignored the question, which is his new favorite thing, just ignore uncomfortable questions.
What really happened? Suspect his girl associate with the purple hair could not go.
AHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAAAHAHAHAHAAHAHAAA, their script got f’d by 300 feet of Mylar!
Well I would hope so. 😣
Bond has been placed on Administrative Leave pending an inquiry into his alcoholism, sexism, and racist behavior.
Will Winken and Nod still be going?
They have to get their stories straight first.
I hear that the balloon is headed for Delaware to drop off a pallet of cash for Biden.
Them spy balloons operate with pinpoint accuracy; one of the most dangerous weapons in their arsenal. Should be shot down immediately and paraded before the cameras to convince the Covid faithful of the heinous, nature of the enemy. “No prisoners!...no prisoners...!”
Only a fool would journey to China in the midst of the worst disease pandemic in human history
How do we know this is a CCP balloon? We have numbers of these same type ballons up over the country every day spying on us. Prove (not you CC)these are CCP.
Funny thing is that I was hearing about Chinese spy balloons last week or further ago and voila, one appears.
Well, it is possible for it to carry a biological payload.
A little haphazard, but would work.
China is evil but not stupid. The are thousands of better ways to deliver a bio weapon. Its not like we have a secure border.
The timing of the spy balloon made me think the Chinese were attempting to get some last minute information to help with the negotiations at this meeting. Maybe I was correct and Blinken realized he was screwed.
