According to Gun Violence Archive, at least 11 mass shootings occurred nationwide over the Labor Day weekend; most took place in Democrat-run cities. Tragically, at least 15 people lost their lives. Cities where the shootings took place included Saint Paul, Minnesota, Charleston, South Carolina, Chicago, Philadelphia and Cleveland.

The Daily Caller News Foundation reports:

The weekend’s deadliest mass shooting so far occurred in Saint Paul, Minnesota, represented by Democratic Mayor Melvin Carter III, where three people died and two others were injured on Sept. 5 in the city’s Payne-Phalen neighborhood, according to The Hill.

The Gun Violence Archive defines mass shootings as incidents in which four or more people were shot or killed, excluding the shooter.

In Philadelphia, another shooter killed two people and injured at least three more on September 5th. Just days earlier, President Joe Biden spoke in Philadelphia where he stated that supporters of former President Donald Trump are a “threat to democracy.”

Throughout the weekend, Philadelphia saw more shootings, during which at least nine people were killed and 19 more were injured, according to Metro Philadelphia.

Chicago, run by Democratic Mayor Lori Lightfoot, is one of the strictest cities on gun control and was the first state to eliminate cash bail in 2021. However, Chicago gun violence over the holiday weekend resulted in 46 people shot and seven wounded, according to ABC 7.

In Charleston, South Carolina, Democratic Mayor John Tecklenburg blamed “illegal guns” and “repeat offenders” for a shooting of a 13-year-old on Sept. 4, and another shooting a few hours later, injuring five people in downtown Charleston, Live 5 News WCSC reported.

Chinese Spy Balloon: Tensions rise between the U.S. and China

A strange object was spotted Wednesday over Billings Montana. The Pentagon confirmed Thursday that the strange object was, in fact, a Chinese spy balloon. According to a report from KPAX, a western Montana news outlet, the balloon had been on the governments radar for days.

On Friday, the Chinese government released a statement saying that the balloon spotted in Billings is a “civilian airship” that’s sole purpose is used to collect research on weather and that it had just blown off course. The balloon was not shot down by orders of the Pentagon due to the risk of falling debris injuring people on the ground.

Sara Carter, who has spoken frequently on the Chinese government’s threat and expansion to the West, stated on Twitter that the United States has failed to stop China from purchasing land near military installations, vital agricultural land, as well as, allowing Chinese linked companies, such as Huawei, to install technology in cellular towers. Those cellular towers are located in Montana, along side more than 150 ICBM nuclear silos.

China said, “The Chinese side regrets the unintended entry of the airship into U.S. airspace due to force majeure.” Majeure meaning that it was out of there control. It blew off course due to limited “self-steering” capabilities according the Ministry. The ministry also stated that the balloon, “deviated far from its planned course.”

This incident is adding fuel to the fire of what is already a tense relationship between the worlds two largest economies. China already lays claim to approximately 80% of the South China Sea, and is seeking full control over Taiwan after assuming full control of Hong Kong. China’s belt and road initiative has invested copious amounts of money into building infrastructure in other countries and uses it as economic blackmail. China’s transportation of fentanyl into Mexico is yet again another example of how they are seeking to damage the US.

Is this just a weather ballon that blew off course? US officials at the White House seem to be unconvinced and will continue to monitor the balloon, as reported.

UPDATED: Statement from the Pentagon was jaw dropping when a reporter asked if the public has a right to know about Beijing’s balloon.

“The public certainly has the ability to look up in the sky and see where the balloon is,” a DOD official responded.
