The UFO Phenomenon

Mystery of downed UFOs over US sparks 'alien invasion' fears

Three unidentified objects have now been downed by fighter jets over North America and we still don't know what they are.
Something strange has been going on in the skies over the country over the last few days.

Following the downing of a large Chinese balloon last week, US jets have since shot down a further three unidentified objects and there could still be several more of them out there.

The first of the three, which was described as "cylindrical and silver-ish gray", was shot down by an F-22 Raptor after it was observed flying at an altitude of around 40,000ft over Alaska.

The second was downed a short time later over Canada, followed by a third over Michigan.
While US investigators are working to recover and identify the wreckage of these objects, speculation has been rife in the media as to what the objects could be and where they came from.

The phenomenon has even sparked fears of an alien invasion.

"The one thing [that] is troubling me here, I sort of see a pattern as I looked at social media this morning," said Jim Himes of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

"All of a sudden, massive speculation about alien invasions and additional Chinese action or Russian action. In the absence of information, people's anxiety leads them into potentially destructive areas."

"So I do hope very soon the administration has a lot more information."

As things stand, all we can do is speculate and wait for more details to be forthcoming.

I found this story quite fascinating. So if I'm reading this correctly, US fighter jets have 'shot down' a number of UFO's in the last two weeks? I doubt very much our 'guests' would allow that to happen. You only have to read the stacks of documents available to the public, including recently released footage of UFO's out manoeuvring US jets at sea. UFO's given everything we've been told, read or seen on released information are far beyond any technology we have here on this planet. Sorry, not buying into this facade for a second.

Hobby Club’s Missing Balloon Feared Shot Down By USAF A small, globe-trotting balloon declared “missing in action” by an Illinois-based hobbyist club on Feb. 15 has emerged as a candidate to explain one of the three mystery objects shot down by four heat-seeking missiles launched by U.S. Air Force fighters since Feb. 10.  The club—the Northern Illinois Bottlecap Balloon Brigade (NIBBB)—is not pointing fingers yet.  But the circumstantial evidence is at least intriguing. The club’s silver-coated, party-style, “pico balloon” reported its last position on Feb. 10 at 38,910 ft. o... [More]

The military and the FBI take orders from the higher ups.  Let's think back here for a second, who was it that gave the order to shoot?  Oh yeah, that Biden dude!  He's already a laughing stock so...yeah...Uncle Joe shot down a Boys Club balloon...way to be in charge JoeBiden.

The point is that our government is run by idiots.

What about the military and pilots? You would think a pilot might say, hey this is a fricken balloon. Sure you want me to shoot this $4000k missile at it?

Pilots take orders...they don't question orders...if their boss says shoot the damn thing down, they shoot it down.  But yeah...exactly!

Okay but we need to get to the bottom of who shot down this balloon.

And those idiots got elected because of support from corporate controllers who have an agenda.   We are lucky they don't all have the same agenda or we really would be living 1984 and A Brave New world.  Currently there are vestiages of both.  In the U.S. we are blasted with ads for anti depressants and told it is common to be diagnosed as bipolar and we should go to our doctor and get medicine to level our moods, and our televisions and mobile phones listen in on everything.   But it is not the government, it is the corporations doing that now so we can still avoid most of it if we try.

Not to diminish your point at all, but, in addition to that point, those idiots got elected because of a brainwashed population.
