White House gives update on mysterious objects as concerns mount



Bipartisan calls are growing louder for President Joe Biden to formally address the American people

While there are mounting questions surrounding the recently shot-down high-altitude objects, the White House Press Secretary was able to rule out one possibility.

“There is no, again no, indication of aliens or extraterrestrial activity with these recent takedowns,” said Karine Jean-Pierre.

On February 4, the U.S. Airforce shot down a Chinese spy balloon that the Pentagon has confirmed is part of China’s massive intelligence surveillance program run by the Chinese military.

The U.S. Navy continues its salvage efforts in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of South Carolina to recover that pay load.

Then on Friday, a second small object was shot down over northern Alaska.

On Saturday a third object was shot down over the Yukon and on Sunday a fourth object was shot down near Canadian airspace over Lake Huran.

On Monday, National Security Council Strategic Communications Coordinator John Kirby delivered an update and was asked about the repeated breach of U.S. airspace.

A reporter asked Kirby, “When it comes to these higher altitudes, are America’s borders secure?”

“The President takes as I said earlier, he takes our national security extremely seriously, he has no higher responsibility than the safety and security of the American people,” Kirby said.

“And I don’t think you need to look any further quite frankly than the decisions he’s made in the last week to 10 days to evidence that.”

During a reporter’s follow-up question, Kirby was asked if the President is plugging holes as he discovers vulnerabilities in real-time.

“You’re making an assumption that I don’t know that the analysis will actually bear out,” Kirby responded.

The U.S. has now shot down more aerial objects over U.S. territory since Pearl Harbor back in 1941.

Bipartisan calls are growing louder for President Joe Biden to formally address the American people on this serious issue reading America’s national security.

Authorities are needing to cancel services because of the severity of the damage

The Netherlands is experiencing a bad case of burrowing badgers.

The cute, fury critters are tunnelling below railway tracks and are wreaking havoc on train services across the country.

In fact, it’s so getting bad, authorities are being forced to cancel services.

Trains in the north and south are the worst affected, with some lines halted for at least a week.

The route between Den Bosch and Boxtel in the south was closed on Tuesday after the mammals dug under the tracks.

Officials are unsure how long the problem will continue as badgers are a protected species.

The CEO of ProRail, the company that maintains the Dutch rail network, says it is the second time in a week that services have been stopped because of badger activity.
