(Republicaninformer.com)- After the US military shot down the Chinese spy balloon off the coast of South Carolina on February 4, three additional unknown objects were shot out of the sky last weekend.
On February 10, a cylindrical object was shot down over the northern coast of Alaska. Another object, described by Pentagon officials as a significantly smaller balloon than the first was shot down the following day over Canada’s Yukon Territory. Then on Sunday, February 12, an “unidentified object” was shot down over Lake Huron.
Naturally, there was some talk about whether or not the unidentified objects shot down in rapid succession over the weekend might have been alien in origin.
When asked about the possibility of extraterrestrial incursion during a Pentagon press briefing on Sunday, NORAD commander Gen. Glen VanHerck said he hasn’t ruled anything out, according to Reuters.
But the following day, the White House ruled it out for him.
During Monday’s White House press briefing, press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said there was “no indication” that the unknown objects were extraterrestrial in origin.
National Security Council spokesman John Kirby echoed Jean-Pierre, telling reporters that with respect to the three objects shot down, Americans don’t have to worry about aliens.
That evening, Fox News host Tucker Carlson touched on the alien rumors, suggesting that we could be facing an alien invasion. Carlson joked that if the aliens ask to be taken to our leader, we’ll probably have to take them to see Kamala Harris since Joe Biden is senile.
Aviation Week reported on Thursday that the object shot down over Canada could have been a $12 balloon belonging to the Northern Illinois Bottlecap Balloon Brigade, a group of hobbyists who create, release, and track homemade balloons fitted with GPS.
The balloon’s last position was recorded off the west coast of Alaska. But based on forecasting, the balloon would have been over the Yukon Territory on Saturday around the time the Air Force fired a $400K Sidewinder missile at an unknown object.
