Doesn't need to be but it seems like there is.

China is so corrupt there are counties with hectares of unfinished housing and government building and billions of dollars in debt*. Poor County in Guizhou Province Has Billions of Dollars in Debts | China | Epoch News

They didn't tell people downstream when the opened the spillways (and bombed one dam from the air again)), trapping 10,000. 10,000 Chinese Residents Trapped Without Food or Electricity Due to Flood | CCP Virus | Epoch News

So they export their problems (Fentanyl, COVID-19). And it blows back on them with what would have been Biblical floods before the era of Weather Warfare.

There's your Theory.

They showed the go fast video and tick tack clips which were likely a bird for go fast and an commercial airliner for tick tack. The only one that's really a mystery is the gimbal clip. Since the object appeared to be flying straight, fairly level and subsonic it was probably something man made or unremarkable. They referred to the object as plural so we're only seeing one of how many?

Are them granted an exemption from local laws while on duty?

The District of Columbia is controlled by Congress, and any power that the City government has is granted to it by Congress. So while laws are laws, the city government does not have the authority to tell federal agencies what they can and cannot do on city streets (unlike, say, Portland, OR). The Bureau of the Department of Agency is well within it's rights to tell the DC Mayor to piss off if the Mayor issues a decree that interferes with the Bureau's operations.

Which is why the Democrats want to make the District of Columbia a state.

I submitted an application with a design to build reusable molotov cocktail. That should be fun.

State level opportunity for mischief is missing in the case of D. C.

"Recovered off world vehicles not made on this Earth..." seems to have faded away.


So, you thought your first pocket calculator was cool?
