- 2021 Monday: The Republic of (FREE) China- Taiwan- says that Chi-Com warplanes have violated its airspace with increasing regularity. We suspect the communists in Beijing are gauging the nation’s air defenses in preparation for an attack. Next, the Biden administration demands the military junta in Myanmar to stand down NOW which could be the first major foreign policy challenge of the new administration. Big whoop. Elsewhere, a major storm is hammering the northeastern part of the United States which is permitting left-wing governors to call off vaccinating their citizens against the Chinese Virus. Speaking of the Chi-Com influenza, a researcher who developed the saliva test to detect the virus has just died. Finally, the WHO team in Wuhan, China, is going to meet with the provincial CDC who will tell them, “NOTHING TO SEE HERE.” Speaking of the Kung Flu, the Chinese have a new method of testing for their lab-engineered pandemic, first reported by Rush Limbaugh on his radio program LAST week- an anal swab. Images of Chinese citizens walking like penguins following this horribly invasive test is all over the place. What a bunch of sick f**ks.
- 2021 Monday A: Famed attorney Alan Dershowitz has nominated Jared Kushner to receive the Nobel Peace Prize over his amazing efforts to bring about peace in the Middle East via the Abraham Accords. Mr. Dershowitz also says the ‘news media cherry-picks all speeches of former President Donald J. Trump’ so as to shape the anti-Trump ‘narrative.’ Speaking of Mr. Trump, his Super PAC- Save America- has amassed $30.9 million in the past couple of months. Next, a bunch of moderate RINO Republicans is hopeful that President Joe Biden (or Barack Hussein Obama- the voice in his ear) will listen to their counterproposal of a $618 billion Chi-Vi relief bill. Don’t be silly, you ninnies, they are not going to listen to you. Period. Meanwhile, a GOP group in the Peach State is launching a “Stop Stacey” (Abrams) group. Finally, loser Congressman Adam Kinzinger, R-Illinois, is forming an anti-Trump PAC. Go for it, Adam, it’s going to be fun watching you go down next year. POS.
- 2021 Monday B: GOP lawmakers are asking the Federal Elections Commission if it’s permissible to use campaign donations to fund bodyguards. Meanwhile, House Dems are trying to bully House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA, into stripping Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA, of her committee assignments. In other disturbing news, it now appears that Texas Senator Ted Cruz, Republican, has drunk from the well of Kool-Aid and last week threw President Donald J. Trump under the bus blaming the 45th president’s ‘speech’ for what happened on January 6, 2021. NOT a good way to seek to remain a stalwart in the GOP there, senator, especially when evidence continues mounting showing that the riot was planned weeks ahead of the day of the mob riots. We know the pipe bombs were planted the previous day.
- 2021 Monday C: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox: Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 103,090,224 confirmed cases, +250,043, 2,230,829, confirmed deaths, +5,527, and 57,160,018 confirmed recoveries, +185,109.

- 2021 Monday F: U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken announces the LGBTQIA+ pride flag will fly at ALL U.S. embassies around the world during pride month festivities. Next, the Dems move to pass their $1.9 trillion ‘COVID-19 relief bill/stimulus bill’ sans any GOP support even though 10 moderate to RINO Republicans are trying to meet with President Joe Biden. Next, some moron nominates Black Lives Matter for a Nobel Peace Prize after the scum rioted all summer long, burned buildings, harmed, and murdered cops, and ran amok in the streets of America. Elsewhere, Dems are seeking to hold hearings for Biden attorney-general nominee Merrick Garland sometime later this month. Meanwhile, homicide rates in 2020 jumped 30-percent from the previous year. Finally, moron Congresswoman Jackie Speier urges President Joe Biden to declare WHITE SUPREMACISM AND VIOLENT EXTREMISM (unless it’s committed by Antifa and Black Lives Matter) as a NATIONAL SECURITY THREAT.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
Hardcore rocker and former bassist for UFO- Pete Way- formed a new band, Waysted. Joining him were Fin Muir (lead vocals), Ronnie Kayfield (lead guitar/vocals), Paul Raymond (rhythm guitar/keyboards/vocals), and Frank Noon (drums/percussion). When Pete left UFO, he left because he disapproved of the commercial sound managers and record labels were pushing the veteran rock band to follow which drove him off into the ozone. Forming this band allowed him to give new life to the UFO sound and thus we have an album that might fit in more with their earlier discography rather than their later. Fans love this album, entitled, “Vices,” which came out on October 21, 1983, as do we and we hope everyone will seek it out and consider adding it to your collection- you will be glad you did.
