After saying she was “excited” to sign HB 1217 days ago, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem has instead sent the bill back to the legislature with recommendations for changes in “style” and “form.”

The House Bill will ban biological males from playing in female sport teams. It also declares there are only two genders — and it lists “inherent” differences between the two.

“I believe that boys should play boys’ sports, and girls should play girls’ sports. I’m returning House Bill 1217 with the following recommendations as to STYLE and FORM,” Noem tweeted Saturday.

The bill was sent to her desk on March 10 and until yesterday, rumors spread the governor may veto the bill.

In a twitter thread, the governor lists many changes she wants made to the bill. Mainly adding specifics and more detailed rules in the bill.

“Unfortunately, as I have studied this legislation and conferred with legal experts over the past several days, I have become concerned that this bill’s vague and overly broad language could have significant unintended consequences,” Noem tweeted Saturday.

“I support this legislation and hope that House Bill 1217, with the changes I am proposing, becomes law,” she tweeted.

The Daily Caller reported yesterday that Noem was “wavering” in her support. The Twitter thread showed this in Noem’s requests for specifics surrounding performance-enhancing drugs and college athletics.

As recently as March 8 Noem had said she was “excited to sign this bill very soon.”

Whether the legislature will make the changes and Noem will put her signature on paper has yet to be seen.

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.
