Editor’s note: Alaska Governor Mike Dunleavy issued the following statement on Feb. 10 regarding the unidentified flying object that was shot down this morning over Alaskan waters.

Today’s announcement by the Pentagon that an unidentified object was shot down by an F-22 from Joint Base Elmendorf Richardson over Alaska’s coastline raises serious national security concerns that should concern every American. I want to thank our Alaska-based military for eliminating the potential threat before it was flying over our land.

This latest intrusion into our airspace raises serious questions about the White House’s decision to not shoot down a Chinese spy balloon last week when it was above the Aleutian Chain and prevent it from flying over important military sites in the Lower-48.

Unlike other states, Alaska is truly on the front lines. Because of our close proximity to our neighbors there is very little margin for error. Russian territory is only a few miles away. We are the one state closest to the Korean Peninsula and China. Alaska is truly on the front lines.

As such, decisions need to be made quickly to preserve the territorial integrity of Alaska and the United States. This incident is further evidence that the military capability of Alaska is robust. An important discussion should ensue about improving those capabilities, including icebreakers, Army, Air Force and Navy capabilities.

If the last few days are any indication, this may be the new norm and we must be prepared. The Alaska National Guard is working closely with USNORTHCOM and other agencies to provide any support as requested.

This latest incident demonstrates that Alaska remains the most strategic place on earth for both geopolitics and national defense.

Gov. Dunleavy weighs in on UFO shot down over Alaska waters


  • Friend of Humanity says:

    The Pentagon is trying to gain back the trust of Alaskans and the US. Who knows who the balloon belongs to. What a pony show. Is this to make us complacent or fearful? Concentrate on staying healthy folks. Who knows who is trying to pull what and if it will have consequences for our health.

    • Jeremy says:

      What’s wrong with you people? Pentagon officials told us over and over again what the deal was. None of you can help yourselves from spreading all the grandiose conspiracies. Read a book how these decisions are made.

      • Lobo says:

        Perhaps you can point to some of the so called “conspiracies”.. I’ll wait for that.. And, no, the Pentagon did not tell us over, and over again what the deal was.. The only time that we heard from the Pentagon was after it had been spotted by the public, and reported.. If they knew what the deal was.. and actually,.. they finally did admit that they did know before it entered the Aleutian Island chain,.. then why didn’t they secure our sovereign borders, and take it down over open waters in the Pacific ? Our national security is no joking matter, unless all you do is sit around reading books.

  • Neil DeWitt says:

    If it’s over our air space and not authorized it needs to be shot down. That includes your private aircraft that you failed to log the flight on. In today’s world and Groper Joe in office it shoot first and ask later. We have a job to protect our people and tge USA/CANADA. We fid the job. end of story.

    • Chuck Anziulewicz says:

      “Shoot first and ask later?” Wait a minute, just last week people were castigating President Biden for waiting TOO LONG to shoot down the Chinese balloon. Seems like whatever he does, the GOP will find some way to make political hay out of it.

      • Lobo says:

        They admitted that they knew it was Chinese ” before ” it entered the Aleutian airspace… It had the markings on it’s shell .. They knew it was about to enter our sovereign borders, and it could have easily been taken down over the open waters of the Pacific ocean… So, yes, the Idiot in chief did wait too long… Suppose I come over to your home, just walk in, and start taking videos of your home without your consent.. No problem, aye ? The democrats will always find some way to protect their politicians, regardless of the consequences.

    • Jeremy says:

      Fair enough, but the way I’m perceiving this is that the US intelligence was not examining the balloon haphazardly without an inkling about what the tech was or was not. The Chinese employ hypersonic and stealth weaponry in their arsenal. It would seem that the tech in the balloon would be considered arbitrarily and ridiculously inconsequential if it mattered at all. OR… Who knows, perhaps the defense thinking is it could also contain a bio hazard??? To what unknown consequence would that reveal if that debris fell on home turf? I doubt the intel revealed to Biden was in the form of, “we need to obliterate it Mr President!!” And then Biden was like, “meh, I don’t want to upset the Chinese.” That’s the way all this garbage was portrayed. I’m hard pressed to believe the decision process was simply shoot it don’t shoot. Intel seemed to know what it was there for and you can bet Canada and the US were tracking the dang thing long before it hit the media.

  • James says:

    Luckily, national defense of the USA rests in the hands of the Federal Government, not the states. Even back in the revolution, it was George Washington and the collective government that got us free. It has the been the whole country, its citizens from all 50 states and the military, that have kept us free. Why make a political dig about Biden…he follows the advice of the military experts. No one wants a AIM missile falling into a small town, power plant, or school. I am glad they waited to blast the first balloon over the Atlantic. That was only a short distance from where my Mom lives in SC. And I am glad we obviously are able to now detect and evaluate new objects. I am very interested to see if this new “car sized” object was a drone or something else. It probably wasn’t up to good on its trajectory. Thank you Alaska for supporting the collective defense 🙂

  • DaveMaxwell says:

    Oxymoron from the moronic governor himself! “We must act quickly “!? Since when governor? Tragedy is happening on a number of fronts you have ultimate responsibility for!!! PFD, voter fraud/ election integrity, pedophilia crimes in public schools, public health murder/c19, foster care abuse, Department of public safety abuse ( Mary Fulp), two AG’s pervs, stolen identities, food stamp whoop-see,” sorry “ carbon credit cards with a payback % totally unaffordable, on and on ! I for one can’t wait for your term to end! It’s been very demoralising. Please consider resigning!!!

  • Dee Cee says:

    “This might be the new norm.” I wish he hadn’t said that line. It is absolutely not normal and we shouldn’t all be sitting around and thinking “yeah okay sure let’s just pretend that it is!”

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      Definitely fear-mongering! “the new norm” is an Obama term. Shame on Dunleavy for using fear-mongering!

  • Mary says:

    Russian jets have been encoaching into Alaskan airspace for years. And Wainwright drives them back. That, has become normal. Nothing new. But, a UFO flying within 25 miles of Deadhorse and the start of the Alaskan Oil Pipeline is definitely not normal.

  • GySgt Don Hoikkala says:

    All we can hope for is that our Government will be totally transparent and let us know that it was an UFO , and not another Chinese Ballon . And announce it public what they shot down . The Truth !!

    • No longer sleeping, lady! says:

      ‘Hoping’ and ‘hoping for transperancy’ are two entirely different ideas. Our federal government projects transperancy in word but not deed.

  • Sarah says:

    I just can’t believe that we would not be concerned about the shrapnel and debris from an aircraft before shooting it!

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      Sarah, those balloons could have been taking down by using drones to puncture holes in the balloon walls to make them lose air slowly, thus control the descent and recover the balloons in one piece. But, the White House decided to be extreme and blow them up instead. National security takes priority, but apparently not a priority to the White House or Alaska’s governor.

      • Now now says:

        FoH. What’s your professional background in aviation warfare and engineering?

      • Friend of Humanity says:

        Now now (interesting name!), actually I listen Jeffrey Prather’s videos/podcasts. Jeffrey Prather is retired military and keeps in close touch with many facets of the government and the military. He was talking about this event on one of his recent podcasts and that they could have kept the balloons intact by controlling the descent.

      • Citizen says:

        Everybody wants to blame someone for everything, and everyone thinks they know what to do but I certainly wouldn’t put you in control of any military anything, you’re just not qualified. The truth is you don’t even know what was shot down none of us do. Spreading conspiracies and disinformation is in itself fear-mongering.

  • AKCharlie says:

    China gets a free pass over American airspace by the White house, this must have belonged to Russia. Just a guess, I wonder if we will ever be told the truth.

  • AKCharlie says:

    This is pre-war activity. They need to know where the missiles are, where the planes are, where the pipeline pump stations are ect. There can be only one reason for wanting that kind of information bad enough to risk friendly relations. Do the math folks, Bidden gave them a free pass to all that information. Do you still feel safe?

  • Friend of Humanity says:

    Talking about the Turkey earthquake here: if anyone has telegram, go check out this video. I saw it on the “And We Know” video podcast 2/11/23. A Romanian Senator talks about how HAARP was used to create the initial Turkey earthquake and she cites proof. This is very concerning – talk about National Security!
    “This is Huge! Romanian Senator Diana Lovanovici speaking in the Parliament on the uses of HAARP technology in Turkey!”

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      HAARP SECRET Weather Modification WEAPON
      Dr. Nick Begich Jr (Nick Begich III’s dad)

    • Arctic Blast says:

      Unfortunately I do not have a Telegram account. Of course any research that is readily available dismisses all such HAARP theories as “conspiracy theories” However if there’s even an element of truth to its capabilities to affect weather change and worse then naturally it would be a closely guarded and defended secret of Government to do so. It would also explain how all these “strange extreme weather” events are playing into the global climate change agenda

    • Arctic Blast says:

      Friend of Humanity….. I believe this is the speech that you refer to and it can be viewed without Telegram account…. Frightening if any of it is actually true…. it is well worth a 2:20 minute watch. !

      • Friend of Humanity says:

        Arctic Blast, I don’t see a link on your comment. Do you have one?

      • Arctic Blast says:

        Looks like it may have been taken down…. here’s a transcript..
        Thank you.

        The title of my political statement:

        “People Had to Die, and It’s Not Over Yet”

        Dear fellow senators,

        For three years we have been experiencing a real campaign of mass killing worldwide, either through alleged pandemics and the imminent need to inject untested vaccines that kill people, or through wars that reduce the world’s population, but rearranges international politics, realigns power […]

        We have lived to witness the production of earthquakes on command, which is actually an attack on Turkey by the greatest of the world who totally disliked being set up by Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, the President of Turkey.

        Moreover, his position of neutrality and mediator in the Ukrainian-Russian war deeply disturbed them, especially since Turkey is the second great power from a military point of view within NATO.

        His position to block Sweden’s accession to NATO, his speech in Davos, as well as the gesture of leaving in the middle of the press conference defying Schwab, did not remain without an echo in the cold world of leaders of the world.

        But no one thought that people would have to die — so many people and in such a terrible way.

        And it’s just a warning because it wasn’t the most populated area of Turkey.

        One hundred fifty (150) after shocks of a devastating earthquake, the second larger than the first, without the existence of an […] — the area being artificially stimulated, geological weapons having existed for a very long time, being used so far without causing too many casualties, probably for experiments.

        Now it has been put into practice.

        If we look carefully at the map of Turkey, we will see that it is furrowed by gas and oil pipelines, this being actually one of the goals.

        But 10 seconds before the occurrence of the so-called earthquake, the Turks closed these pipelines.

        In addition, 24 hours before the earthquake, 10 countries withdrew their ambassadors from Turkey.

        Five days before its occurrence, the Romainian Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a travel warning for Romanian citizens in Turkey, although there was no danger, as did other countries.

        By killing people, they served their interests.

      • Friend of Humanity says:

        Well, at least someone tried to make it available. I am glad that someone snagged it and put it on telegram! A lot of things getting scrubbed off the internet these days! Thank you for the transcript so that others can read it.

      • Friend of Humanity says:

        I tricked my search engine into not filtering this – I found the video on bitchute. What a powerful statement! The ending raises hope in my mind because nations are standing up against the globalists now. Prayers for all of the humanity-loving world.

  • Friend of Humanity says:

    I was just reading North Dakota’s Senators and Governor’s humanity-loving response to Biden’s State of the Union address. Did Dunleavy give his response to Biden’s State of the Union address? Would his response to Biden’s sound similar to North Dakota’s?

  • Shelia says:

    Let’s face it, we are seeing increased activity. If that continues we must act accordingly and assume that there must be ulterior motives. The question remains, by whom. China? Russia?North Korea? Aliens? Being alert and with a plan of action is required. Doing nothing and letting our defense establishments be photographed is tantamount to national suicide.

  • Jennifer says:

    That’s right folks, just keep bickering about these apparent False Flags from [dis]honorable and [un]trustworthy Biden, Dunleavy, and Trudeau. Make sure you do NOT read Seymour Hersh’s “How America Took Out the Nord Stream Pipelines” and ABSOLUTELY DO NOT do a search for the latest news regarding the “Ohio Train Derailment” or “Ohio Explosion.”

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      What are you trying to say Jennifer? Do you think that people here only read about local things since this is a local news board giving local news?

      • Jennifer says:

        I think the UFOs are yet another psyop to keep people from noticing some pretty serious crimes that aren’t been mentioned on the lame stream news.

      • Friend of Humanity says:

        I agree that the “UFOs” are a psyop; we were told not to believe the UFO psyop on several different websites. The Biden regime destroying the Nord Stream pipeline deserves national attention or even world-wide attention! The Ohio catastrophe is heartbreaking and I cannot imagine how they will fully recover from that. I could not understand, though, why you started out your paragraph like you did. If you wanted to talk about the UFOs, talk about them. Every once in a while I throw in a link to something different-off topic. But, most the time, if I throw a link in, it is because it somehow relates to Alaska. General Michael Flynn, in the last couple of days, suggested the best thing we could do is concentrate on our communities and get things right in our communities. We know we have a lot of work to do in the Anchorage/Mat-Su Borough to combat the evil agenda that has been put in place. There is so much going on…we are being hit from all angles. Humanity will get through this. In the end God wins.

      • Friend of Humanity says:

        Jennifer, here the podcast video from And We Know reminds not to forgot everything that is going on and how timely these “UFOs” have appeared to draw the attention away from everything good that has been happening recently.

  • DaveMaxwell says:

    A sincere thank you for keeping your eyes open and placing an effort to keep from getting distracted!
    Pray and be diligent!

  • Jennifer says:

    Did you see there were 2 more train derailments, one in SC and one in TX. One was carrying the same toxic chemicals! Our government and DoD do not need China or Russia to attack, they are doing it to us themselves. If anyone here is new to the depopulation agenda, is a good website to get an overview of what we are up against. If you are familiar and want to connect more dots, the book Geoengineered Transhumanism by Elana Freeland is a must read. You will probably regret taking the vaccine and the PCR test, but at least you will understand why no one should take anymore. Peace and love!

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      I forgot about – good website! I had not heard about the SC and TX train derailments. You sure are correct that our government is doing a fine job by themselves in getting rid of the people of their nation! My heart breaks for those that took the jabs. I did take a PCR test shortly after the plandemic started because a co-worker was freaking out because of a cough that I had. Never again after that. I hope that nothing was on the swab – it was only inserted into the front of my nostril, so I hope that it was more for dna capture or just incorrectly done! Thank you for the information! Peace and love to you also fren.

  • Now now says:

    What a sad website this is.

  • Friend of Humanity says:

    I saw this video by Mark Dice made nine years ago, but definitely applicable in today’s world!

    It’s not aliens and not alien UFOs. We will see what it is in the coming days.

  • Debi Kirchner says:

    Why haven’t we been told anything about whatever it was that was shot down over Alaska? Not a word, and I don’t believe for a second that our national guard have been unable to get to it. They are trained for this. Brother…….matter of fact why haven’t we heard anything at all about any of the
