Months of rioting, shootings, autonomous zones, and crime may not constitute “anarchy” to the Biden administration.

The White House may revoke Seattle, Portland, and New York City of their “anarchist jurisdiction” designations put in place by the Trump administration, according to White House press secretary Jen Psaki.

Psaki said the Biden White House will be “charting our own path” in terms of the cities and their designations as reported by the New York Post.

“We are in a new administration and of course are reviewing a range of policies and charting our own path. But I don’t think I’m going to have any comment on policies from a year ago from the prior administration,” the press secretary said according to the Post.

The Trump Justice Department and Budget Office slapped the names on the cities after this summer’s riots and crime spikes following the murder of George Floyd. The administration claimed they tolerated rising crime rates and didn’t act on the violent rioting.

Former director of the White House Office of Management and Budget Russ Vought told the Post his “hope, not my expectation” is that the Biden team will refuse to spend taxpayer dollars on the cities.

“My hope would be that the Biden administration would refuse to subsidize with taxpayer dollars failed leadership at the state and local levels that has caused unrest and destruction in many communities,” Vought said.

The designations put the cities at a disadvantage for receiving federal grant money.

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.
