WOW! A NEW LIE! Biden Officials Say “Efforts Ordered by Joe Biden – Helped Identify Last Week’s Spy Balloon” – When It was Newspaper Photographer Who First Spotted It!

It’s been four hours. It’s time for a new lie from the Biden regime on the China spy balloon scandal.

As Cullen at The Gateway Pundit reported earlier – President Trump created a highly successful program to protect Americans from Chinese spying but Joe Biden shut it down when he came into office.

FLASHBACK: President Trump Created Highly Successful Program Meant To Protect America From Chinese Espionage And Biden Shut It Down

But now the Biden regime is telling reporters that Joe Biden put into place a new policy that helped officials to identify last week’s China spy balloon.

We took a screengrab of this report in case the AP takes this garbage down.

The AP actually reported this garbage. They have no shame.

U.S. officials said Monday that improvements ordered by President Joe Biden to strengthen defenses against Chinese espionage helped to identify last week’s spy balloon — and to determine that similar flights were conducted at multiple points during the Trump administration.

White House National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said that after Biden took office, the U.S. “enhanced our surveillance of our territorial airspace, we enhanced our capacity to be able to detect things that the Trump administration was unable to detect.”

Biden, in turn, has been faulted by some Republicans for not ordering the balloon shot down before it made its way across the U.S. Officials have said there was concern about damage to people on the ground, and Biden addressed the issue on Monday.

“Once it came over to the United States, from Canada, I told the Defense Department I wanted to shoot it down as soon as it was appropriate,” Biden said. The military concluded “we should not shoot it down over land, it was not a serious threat.”

The fact is that the Biden regime knew about the balloon on Saturday January 28th when it first entered US air space in Alaska. Instead of shooting it down they said nothing because they did not want to jeopardize Secretary of State Blinken’s trip to China that was planned for Friday.

It wasn’t until a photographer for the Billings Gazette took a photo of the balloon on Wednesday afternoon that the Biden regime admitted the spy balloon was in US airspace.

On Saturday the Biden regime admitted the China spy balloon was first spotted a week earlier in Alaska back on January 28, flew from there into Canada and down into the continental US. On Tuesday the balloon entered Idaho and crossed the US for the next four days. The China spy balloon was then shot down after it left US territory and had collected all of its data for the Chinese Communist Party. This was an unprecedented event in US history.

But the story continues to change and develop days after the first reports of the spy balloon over Montana.

The Pentagon said earlier today there were SIX Chinese spy balloons spotted over US territory during the Trump years.

But no one was notified in leadership in the Trump administration or the US intelligencecommunity.

The story is literally changing by the hour.

And General Keith Kellogg, who was the Executive Secretary and Chief of Staff of the United States National Security Council in the Trump administration, says he was never notified!

The fake news media on Saturday played clean-up for the Biden regime.  The media hoped to convince Americans that these China spy balloons cross the US all the time.  In fact, fake news insisted that this happened during the Trump years – three times.

On Sunday morning a FOX News reporter pushed back on these claims. She spoke with Michael Bolton, Ric Grenell, Former Defense Secretary Mark Esper, and others who said they had never heard of this happening. And if it did occur, they were not notified – which is just as bad.

Former Trump advisor John Bolton, former DNI Ric Grenell, Former Defense Secretary Mark Esper, Former Secretary of State and CIA Direcor Mike Pompeo, President Trump , Defense Secretary Mattis, and former DNI John Ratcliffe, spoke out that that this was a lie.

This never happened during the Trump years. And if it did happen, the top officials in Trump administration were not notified – which is just as bad.

The military is changing its story.  Now they want you to believe that the intelligence community discovered the balloons during the Trump years — BUT NEVER NOTIFIED THEIR INTEL LEADERS!
