U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken has indefinitely postponed his trip to China following the recently confirmed Chinese state-owned balloon flying in United States air space over Montana for potential spying purposes. While the trip was never announced to the public, Blinken was scheduled to travel to Beijing this weekend and meet with President Xi to discuss the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict.

Many are angered by the move, as top Republican lawmakers believed that Blinken’s plans should have remained, however, the topic of discussion should have been shifted into why the Chinese government was flying a balloon over the United States.

Sen. Tom Cotton believed that while Blinken should have canceled his meeting with President Xi in Beijing, President Biden should have to answer as to how a Chinese balloon was able to make its way into out unsecured airspace.

“Secretary Blinken should cancel his trip to China… And President Biden must answer why he has not secured U.S. airspace.”

While the Chinese government is confirmed the balloon is theirs, they have not admitted to the aircraft being used for spying purposes.

Following today’s breaking news that the balloon is confirmed to be Chinese, when questioned, a Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson wouldn’t confirm that the balloon had spying capabilities, instead pointing to other uses for the balloon:

“The airship is from China. It is a civilian airship used for research, mainly meteorological, purposes… Affected by the Westerlies and with limited self-steering capability, the airship deviated far from its planned course.”

China has stated they “regret” the incident, however, many questions about the balloon and its capabilities still have to be answered.


  1. Biden’s refusal to do anything makes me wonder if that whatever its doing is not good and OUR buffoon doesn’t care or has no ideas”DUH”

  2. Well, Biden is allowing Chinese to enter through the southern border, so why not through the western space? Everything’s open. But Biden won’t do anything about it because he doesn’t want to endanger that 10% for the Big Guy.

  3. We’ve had wide open boarders for over 2 years now. Apparently there’s no boarder for our air space either.

    1. Those balloons have air & gases in them right ? Why isn’t anyone questioning the possibility that China is spreading another deadly Virus in our Air space ? They already did at Wuhan with Covid wouldn’t this be a new method of disseminating another disease???

    2. not only are we living in a difficult time just because China is doing it, but it also signals to the world that we have a weak government that’s not good at all.

  4. Planned trip to china cancelled doesn’t tell the whole story. I think this is a deterrent to something else, like trying to recover from a failed democratic takeover, which would’ve lead to socialism.

  5. this news should not be a surprise for Americans according to their news the balloon was in the American air space since Jan.so why is all the hype now why did not shoot it above Alaska why wait for it to transmit the information and also takes it time above the Arizona missile base then they say they are monitor it looks N O R A D was being paid for just looking
