Chinese Spy Balloon Sighted Over Gladstone

For those who have been worried about the Chinese using TikTok to spy on you, it gets worse and now reaches into our own back yard. A Chinese Spy Balloon is now crossing over Clay County and the president has yet to order it shot down.  Personally, I don't care who spies on me, but by God, it better be an American like Bill Gates Mark Zuckerberg or Jeff Bezos. No Chink's for thank you very much. CNN reports:

  Pilots flying at high altitudes have spotted the suspected Chinese spy balloon as it drifts over the central United States.

“Derelict balloon adrift,” noted the crew of a Cessna Citation private jet in a weather report, which came into the Federal Aviation Administration around 11:30 a.m. ET.

The pilot of the flight, which was at 43,000 feet, said the balloon was 20 miles north of Kansas City International Airport at about 50,000 feet. The publicly-available pilot weather observation is known as a Pilot Report or PIREP.

A source familiar with the situation tells CNN that other pilots are reporting seeing the balloon to air traffic controllers.
