Secure Freedom Minute: ”The Balloon Goes Up”
“When the balloon goes up” is military slang for the start of a shooting war. The Chinese Communist Party has literally sent a very large balloon up to collect intelligence over sensitive sites

appeasement by our “captured” leadership elites only intensifies the likelihood of that war becoming a violent one.
