LARRY KUDLOW: Chinese spy balloon is a huge breakdown in our national security
Larry Kudlow: Biden admin is paralyzed in response to dictator-led enemies
FOX Business host Larry Kudlow reacts to the Chinese spy balloon flying over the U.S. on ‘Kudlow.’
When my team started pitching me last night on a Chinese balloon story, I texted back, "We don't do UFOs on our show." Whoops! Kind of got that wrong, didn't I? This Chinese balloon story is dominating the news as it should.
It's a huge embarrassment to the United States, it's a gigantic breakdown in our national security. Apparently, it was known ahead of time and so far, neither the White House nor the Defense Department knows what to do about it. This is first and foremost a China story. They are our principal adversary in the world. They sent this big balloon over 60,000 ft. in the air to spy on us.
In particular, to spy on our nuclear missile silos in Montana, but also there are key military bases with active nuclear missile wings in nearby Wyoming and North Dakota, and there are top-secret military bases with deactivated missile wings also in North Dakota and nearby South Dakota and Missouri, so this is no coincidence. This Chinese spy balloon started over the Aleutian Islands in Alaska with other sensitive military bases to spy on there and so far, we haven't done a thing about any of this. The balloon is still up there.
The semi-paralyzed Biden administration has pulled Secretary of State Blinken's China trip off the books, but that balloon is still up there spying on America. The Chinese communist government is telling us not to worry, it's really a "civilian weather" balloon doing some kind of research, kind of blown off course. This, of course, is utter nonsense.
