Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene held a press conference Friday, one day after the House voted to remove her from her committee assignments.

The House voted 230 to 199 to strip Greene of her committee assignments Thursday, with 11 Republicans supporting the decision. Two Democrats and one Republican did not vote.

Greene began her press conference by speaking about the importance of free speech.

“Free speech matters. Free speech really matters and yesterday when the Democrats and 11 of my Republican colleagues decided to strip me of my committee assignments – education and labor and the budget committee – you know what they did? They actually stripped my district of their voice. They stripped my voters of having representation to work for them.”

Greene has been under fire for her past antisemitic remarks as well as QAnon conspiracy theories and claims that school shootings and 9/11 were staged.

Greene delivered a speech before her colleagues Thursday, saying she regrets some “words of the past,” but did not specifically apologize for her remarks.

When asked by a reporter Friday if she has anything she would like to apologize for Greene responded, “Of course, I’m sorry for saying all those things that are wrong and offensive and I sincerely mean that and I’m happy to say that. I think it’s good to say when we’ve done something wrong.”

Greene declined to apologize for endorsing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s execution and ended the press conference when asked.

When asked about liking a Facebook comment arguing Pelosi should get a “bullet to the head,” Greene responded, “when you want to keep telling the same story over and over but don’t want to tell the truth, that’s your problem. And that’s how you end a press conference,” before walking away.

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.
