Defense Department spokesman Brig. Gen. Pat Ryder said Friday that the Chinese surveillance balloon hovering over the United States has moved to the central part of the country, but declined to get into specifics about its location.

Ryder said the North American Aerospace Defense Command is closely monitoring the balloon’s location and that it is moving eastward across the U.S.

“The balloon continues to move eastward and is currently over the center of the continental United States. Again, we currently assess that the balloon does not present a military or physical threat to people on the ground at this time,” Ryder said.

He said, “It’ll probably be over the United States for a few days.”

Ryder added, “We assess that it does not pose a risk to people on the ground as it currently is traversing the continental United States, and so out of an abundance of caution, cognizant of the potential impact to civilians on the ground from a debris field right now, we’re going to continue to monitor and review options.”

According to the report, the balloon is flying about 60,000 feet above sea level which is higher than a commercial airliner.

A Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson confirmed Friday, “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. The Chinese side regrets the unintended entry of the airship into U.S. airspace due to force majeure. The Chinese side will continue communicating with the U.S. side and properly handle this unexpected situation caused by force majeure.”

The Department of Defense tweeted the full briefing below:

Rep. Andy Ogles tweeted, “Is this a test run for an EMP? The Biden Administration’s feckless response to Chinese balloon leaves every American at risk.”

    • Don’t be stupid. Do you think the largest military in the world isnt pulling stunts like this? I swear, trumpster divers get dumber with each post.
      Why don’t you say the Chinese balloon is just trying to communicate with Trump so he and the communist Chinese can cut another secret business deal with Trump International Inc?

      Trump Records Shed New Light on Chinese Business Pursuits

      President Trump and his allies have tried to paint the Democratic nominee, Joseph R. Biden Jr., as soft on China, in part by pointing to his son’s business dealings there.
      President Trump and his allies have tried to paint the Democratic nominee, Joseph R. Biden Jr., as soft on China, in part by pointing to his son’s business dealings there.

      Senate Republicans produced a report asserting, among other things, that Mr. Biden’s son Hunter “opened a bank account” with a Chinese businessman, part of what it said were his numerous connections to “foreign nationals and foreign governments across the globe.”

      But Mr. Trump’s own business history is filled with overseas financial deals, and some have involved the Chinese state. He spent a decade unsuccessfully pursuing projects in China, operating an office there during his first run for president and forging a partnership with a major government-controlled company.

      And it turns out that China is one of only three foreign nations — the others are Britain and Ireland — where Mr. Trump maintains a bank account, according to an analysis of the president’s tax records, which were obtained by The New York Times. The foreign accounts do not show up on Mr. Trump’s public financial disclosures, where he must list personal assets, because they are held under corporate names. The identities of the financial institutions are not clear.

      • Dipshit. Doesn’t matter who’s President this shouldn’t happen. From buying up military academies to agriculture to this should not to be overlooked by this wimpy ass President & woke military

        • Yes, anyone, even we traditional conservative republicans, would have to be a liberal to have pointed out all the contradictions of the Chinese Mandarin Candidate

      • kohn We are talking about a balloon. Trump is not the president. Fuck off, you useless degenerate POS. Always have to get your comments in and call childish names into the conversation. Is xi jinping or soros paying your ass to comment here. What the feckless dickhead biden has done to America is unconscionable. He should be hauled off to a prison cell to spend the rest of his days there but he better have someone to wipe his ass with him.

    • Exactly. And our military trusts China’s word that it’s a ballooon to track the weather? How do we know that it’s not really an EMP balloon that they tend to find the right position to dismantle our electric grids?

      • My thought is a biohazard balloon to spread throughout the US; specifically, our Military bases first so we have no capability to fight back. china already tried covid but found that didn’t rid the world of enough of the population. china should start with their own 1.4 Billion population first. Communist china’s population is shrinking. While the massive country is still home to 1.4 billion people — nearly one out of every five people on Earth — Communist china’s National Bureau of Statistics announced that its population shrank in 2022, falling by roughly 850,000 people.

  1. China probably talk to our compromised Joe Biden, threatening to release, blackmail material if he did not cooperate. This is ridiculous. We are allowing an enemy nation to freely spy on us. This is what happens when 81 million people vote for a buffoon.

      Better think twice before shooting it down. Is that what China wants? Is it a Trojan Horse, containing more than spy equipment? A dirty bomb?
      Radioactive material?
      Better to bring it down over open water and not explode it!

  2. SHOOT IT DOWN!!! No reason on earth this needs to be flying over our country! You know darn well if it was a balloon of ours over China it would be long gone as soon as it entered their air space! This shows how woke and China loving this military is! 😡

  3. With Biden in charge, America is a sitting duck. That spy balloon should have been shot down as soon as is started heading for the continental US, unless, of course, it’s aiming for Washington, DC. Then I’d say let it continue.

  4. Just soot the fucking thing down. The world war two people would not let this happen. General Patton would’ve taken it out instantly. What the hell is wrong with you chickenshit modern generals


  6. Simple hook it and drag it out of US airspace . Then destroy it. TFB China, you put one over USA and one over Canada. That’s enough reason.

    I’m not a hawk, but I’m not stupid

  7. This just let’s us know oh Joe has sold us out to china.China has land here they have police here and now they get to fly around and do what they want.What a fu##ing joke!!

  8. Shoot the dam thing down. If we had this balloon in China do you think it would be still in the air? What a weak country we have become and dimwit in the White House is useless!!

  9. My question is what are they hiding now?
    There is always something else going on when Dems are pushing narrative!
    BEWARE PATRIOTS LYING BIDEN (OBUMA ) are up to something!!! More docs?

  10. In 1960 when I was 13 years old my father told me that communist China had declared they would take the USA down from within without firing a shot. It’s happening right now. They will not nuke us because they own too much property in the US. Everyone thought my dad was crazy but he was freaking right on it. Bring back all manufacturing into the US.

  11. China now owns more than 10 golf courses in Myrtle Beach. What does that tell you? People are selling land because they need to because they don’t have money to do whatever, but to the freaking Chinese?

  12. You people who think that we have the world’s largest military you really need to have your head examined. At one time we had the world’s largest and best military but the Democrats have made sure to screw up our military. As a vet in my opinion all our military is a bunch of pussies excuse my language. The reason why I say this is there all worried about pronouns now instead of teaching our soldiers how to protect this country and how to be unified amongst each other. When I was in that was the biggest lesson I learned you had to count on the person next to you to have your back just like they had to count on you to have their back. I’m going to say this once because it’s true you can have your head up your butt all you want but a military is only as strong as its leader and bidens the biggest puss I’ve ever seen. Again excuse my language I don’t know how else to put it if I hurt your feelings go in your safe place and maybe you’ll snap out of it.

    • Thank you for your service, Shawn. I feel it always necessary to thank Military members for their dedication to serve our Country. Not enough thanks go out to you men and women for their dedication. Their families also serve along with them. They give up so much to defend and protect us. Right now, I feel like we are at the lowest point our Military has ever been due to the liar in thief, commander of nothing joe biden, the butt head. He is a pathetic excuse for a human being.

  13. Shoot it out of the sky .. preferably over an alligator farm in FL. If we did this over mainland China, the airplane or balloon would be shot out of the sky and the staff would be taken prisoner as spies and they’d never see the light of day again sort of like what happened over Cuba a 1/2 0f a century ago. Course the US government would deny any knowledge of such events.

    • I have asked for that very thing. Tired of people on here being called stupid and TRUMPSTER divers. It apparently fallen on deaf ears as nothing from DML team. We don’t need derogatory trolls on here

      • I have asked DML many times by using the “About DML – Connect” option above right of page, but nothing is done. I guess the asshole kohn allegedly got kicked off twitter, facebook and other websites, so now he interjects himself here to troll others and uses derogatory names. He allegedly does not live in the US but a country bordering an asian country. My thought is that it is a very cheap place to live yet he has bragged about his portfolio.

  14. If it’s in our air space without permission, take it out, or for you pussies out there. Let’s bring it down and see what kind of information it’s been gathering?. Any other country would’ve shot the SOB down. As for Kohn I would like 3×3 minute rounds with you in a ring, to knock some fucking sense in your head and shut your mouth. You are a plant on this format to do nothing other than stir shit that’s the kind of piece of shit you are.

  15. Honestly either drag it out over the ocean and take it down or find a safe way to bring it down. We as Americans would like to know what info it’s actually gathering. The weather excuse doesn’t work for us. We aren’t sleeping with the enemy!
