Tomorrow is the BIG DAY- Nancy Pelosi’s Stalinist Show Trial begins which is why the Joestapo is torturing Trump supporters in the D.C. prison gulag

Speaking of protests, another good-sized crowd showed up in front of the Joestapo D.C. headquarters where more than 500 Capitol Hill protesters are still being held and abused. For whatever reason, the D.C. Joestapo is trying to crush out the spirits of American patriots by abusing and mistreating these people who six months after the ‘incident’ are still being denied bail.

  7. 2021 Monday F: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE I- Today is Day No. 125 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and her 31st day since her one and only visit to the El Paso Sector along the border.  Sadly for the country, the invasion of the United States continues around the clock as thousands cross every single day into the country, turning themselves over to border authorities, and then being distributed across the entire country.   We learned today that Joe Biden’s halting of the border wall project is costing U.S. taxpayers $3 million per day in shut down costs, security costs, and other incidental costs. 
  8. 2021 Monday G: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE II- Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, raised an important question: ‘Where was U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas’ warning to all the illegals flooding across the southern border?’  After all, the DHS secretary warned Cubans NOT to venture to the United States as they would be denied entry into the United States.   Meanwhile, Senator John Kennedy, R-LA, says the Biden halt on building the border wall is “a crime against nature and intelligence.”  Next, Governor Kristi Noem journeyed to the Tex-Mex border today to view the ongoing Joe Biden-caused crisis occurring there around the clock.
  9. 2021 Monday H: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS I- The Tunisian president has shuttered the doors on the nation’s parliament amid rising civil unrest.  Elsewhere, the Russians did some chest-thumping today by announcing the development of a ‘doomsday plane.’  What is this?  A nuclear-powered aircraft that can remain in the skies overhead 24/7/365 armed with nuclear weapons?  That would be something.  Meanwhile, we learned today that HUNTER BIDEN’S art agent has had DEEP TIES to communist China since 2014.  Say it ain’t so, drooling Joe!  All this talk about ‘ethics’ regarding Hunter Biden’s crooked dealings is nothing more than BULLSHIT.
  10. : COVID-19 UPDATES AND ADDITIONAL INFORMATION I- France announced that it warned the United States back in 2015 about the COVID-19 experiments going on in the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  Did the U.S. take note of the warning?  It seems not.   Likewise, Congressman Mo Brooks, R-AL 5th congressional district, says of the Chi-Vi that ‘COVID-19 is part of the Chi-Coms unrestricted biowarfare program against the United States.’  It is getting close to time when we should light these communist SOBs up with as many neutron bombs as we can muster.  Right on cue, drooling Joe Biden plans to keep travel restrictions, i.e., mask requirements, in place citing the various COVID-19 variants.  Hey, Joe!  How about closing the f**king southern border?   (Note- none of us believe that Joe Biden can tell his ass from a hole in the ground.  Yes, that’s cruel, we know it, but so apropos).
  11. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 UPDATES AND ADDITIONAL INFORMATION II- A national debate continues over the wearing/not wearing of masks in schools as the first day of instruction draws closer.  However, we learned today that on Friday, Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki said that the White House is ‘NOT mandating Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccinations for White House staff.’  Wow.  What’s good enough for them is good enough for us.   Elsewhere, as the war against the unvaccinated continues, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, says the ‘ban on the unvaccinated is akin to segregation.’  Amen.  In other Chi-Vi news, the Veterans Administration becomes the first federal agency requiring EVERY health care employee to be vaccinated for Wuhan Virus Crisis. 
  12. : HEALTH AND MEDICAL ALERTS- California will now require proof of vaccination for the China Virus from ALL state workers no matter who you are.   Regarding the Chi-Com Beijing Bug, a new Rasmussen Poll says that public opinion of the media’s COVID-19 coverage has soured since President Donald J. Trump left the White House.   Elsewhere, Pfizer and Moderna- according to a report- are going to expand their ongoing studies into Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines for kids aged 5-to-11.  The kids don’t need the damned vaccines, folks.
  13. : VOTING INTEGRITY / FRAUDULENT AND STOLEN ELECTION NEWS-  Wisconsin GOP lawmakers are now promising a forensic audit of the 2020 Elections in their state.  We know a great deal of election fraud occurred in the Cheese Head State in the hours post-Election Day.
  14. : JOE BIDEN REGIME NEWS I- The Biden regime is demanding that citizenship for the DREAMERS- illegal aliens brought here as brats- must be included in the $3.5 trillion budget bill.  Oh, really? 
  15. : POLITICAL NEWS I- Congresswoman Nancy Mace, R-SC 1st congressional district, has unveiled a new bill today, the “Free Britney Act” in honor of pop star Britney Spears who is trapped in a conservatorship run by her father.  We hope she is able to get out of this cruel and highly unnecessary imposition on her life and that perhaps her leeching father will end up in the slammer.  Meanwhile, Senator Mike Lee, R-UT, says that ‘Joe Biden’s infrastructure bill will create a reverse Robin Hood effect by which, the rich will get richer and the poor poorer.’  Amen.  Speaking of the infrastructure bill, President Donald J. Trump says that the GOP must wait on passing this mess until after the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.  Amen to this, too.
  16. 2021 Monday O: POLITICAL NEWS II- A new poll says that a whopping 81-percent of the American people are alarmed by the growing presence of the Chi-Coms across the United States government as well as their presence in media and popular culture.  The American people also are fearful that the Chi-Coms are buying up vast tracts of U.S. farmland.  This crap must stop and the Chi-Coms must be booted from everything into which, their evil tentacles have slithered. 
  17. 2021 Monday P: POLITICAL NEWS III- “America’s Mayor” Rudy Giuliani continues to blast Joe Biden for cozying up with communists while the Cuban people continue protesting for their freedom![xii]  In fact, over the weekend in Washington, D.C., a crowd of Cuban Americans showed up and raised their voices in front of the White House, demanding the Biden regime do something to help their friends, relatives, neighbors, and fellow citizens.  Speaking of protests, another good-sized crowd showed up in front of the Joestapo D.C. headquarters where more than 500 Capitol Hill protesters are still being held and abused.  For whatever reason, the D.C. Joestapo is trying to crush out the spirits of American patriots by abusing and mistreating these people who six months after the ‘incident’ are still being denied bail.  Whatever happened to bail reform? 
  18. 2021 Monday Q: POLITICAL NEWS IV- Congressman Tom Emmer, R-MN 6th congressional district, head of the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) guarantees that the GOP is going to retire U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, D-CA 12th congressional district, ‘PERMANENTLY.’  Man, she needs to be retired now.  The nonagenarian, disheveled, lemon-sucking speaker should have been retired years ago.  We hope you are able to keep your word on this.  We would rather see Congressman “Shtupping Steny” Hoyer, DS-MD 5th congressional district, running the show.
  19. 2021 Monday R: POLITICAL NEWS V- Tomorrow is the beginning of U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s Stalinist show trial- the January 06, 2021 Capitol Hill Riots Select Committee- and all eyes are on Washington, D.C. for the SHOW TRIAL OF THE CENTURY!  Congressman Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district, says that House Minority Leader Congressman Kevin McCarthy, R-CA, 23rd congressional district, MUST PULL Congresswoman Liz Cheney, RINO-WY At-Large district, and Congressman Adam “Kiss Ass” Kinzinger, RINO-IL 16th congressional district, from the select committee.  We agree.  IF Leader McCarthy fails to do this, AICPENDBLOG.COM members in California will work at getting him out in November 2022.  In other news, Donald Trump Jr. is leading in favorability polls.   (Leader McCarthy did label Kinzinger and Cheney as little more than “Pelosi Republicans.”  How true.  Vote this scum out of office).
  20. 2021 Monday S: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I- A New Jersey woman continues to suffer daily fines of $250 for putting out signs that are derogatory of enfeebled Joe Biden in her front yard.  Where can the AICPENDBLOG.COM send money to help you continue putting out these patriotic signs?  In other miscellaneous news, Chef Lilah Paulikovich of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day says that over the weekend when she was citing VAERS on our Twitter page that a reader said you ‘can’t take everything the federal Vaccine Adverse Effects Reporting System says.’  That left her somewhat flabbergasted as she said to this individual that ‘you liberals drop to your knees in front of big government on everything else it says so why not VAERS?’  No answer to her question.  Isn’t it amazing how libs always pick and choose which government entities they choose to follow or quote?
  21. 2021 Monday T: ECONOMIC NEWS- Bitcoin’s rise has helped to lift all other cryptocurrencies up in value although the ‘Tether’ cryptocurrency is being investigated for possible bank fraud.  Elsewhere, Dutch company Philips beats Q2 forecasts ahead of respirator device recall.  In other economic news, Irish budget airlines Ryanair projects 100 million passengers this year.  Even though they have had some downturns, they are bullish on their future.
  22. 2021 Monday U: CRIME AND PUNISHMENT NEWS / LAW ENFORCEMENT NEWS I- Noted communist financier George Soros has funded more than $1 million to help ‘Defund the Police’ efforts across the United States.  When the hell is Black Ops going to run this bastard to earth and whack him?  Enough is flipping enough already.  In other news, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, DS-NY, aka the Love Gov, aka the Gropin’ Gov, is questioning the neutrality of the Empire State’s prosecutors who are investigating the cretin for a variety of crimes such as sexual assault, killing nursing home residents by seeding facilities with Chi-Vi-infected patients, and other crimes.  We hope to see the governor wearing an orange jump suit sometime soon.  Elsewhere, lawyers for so-called ‘QAnon Shaman’ Jacob Chansley are trying to get their client released now that he is suffering from mental illness due to his ongoing mistreatment in the Joestapo jail in Washington, D.C.  LET THESE PEOPLE OUT OF PRISON NOW- this is not America.  IF it is, you are behaving like the federal government did back when the accused assassins of President Abraham Lincoln were mistreated and tortured.  This is NOT good.
  23. 2021 Monday V: PRO-DEATH MOVEMENT-ABORTION NEWS- House Democrats are unifying behind their goal of dirtying the souls of EVERY American by stripping away the Hyde and Helms Amendments that prohibit using taxpayer dollars to fund abortions in the United States (Hyde Amendment) and abroad (Helms Amendment).  WTF do the taxpayers have to fund abortions for women both here in the United States and across the world?  WTF is wrong with these evil people?  They are putting bullseyes on their backs, that’s for sure.  (Note- the Democrats and the RINOs reap big rewards from money culled from the sale of fetal body parts that end up in their hip pockets via political donations).
  24. 2021 Monday W: BIG TECH NEWS- In an all-too common occurrence, hackers hacked in to What’s App and got the information from approximately 1,500 U.S. government employees as well as from journalists and activists.  It’s almost as if BIG TECH permits this kind of crap to happen.   Elsewhere, is pushing to get individual apartment keys from building superintendents so as to enter people’s apartments ostensibly to leave people’s packages inside.  Wow.  What could go wrong with this?
  25. 2021 Monday X: NATURAL DISASTERS NEWS- Due to a massive sandstorm raging in Utah, at least seven people were killed in a massive vehicle pileup and numerous other people injured.  Elsewhere, five firefighters who suffered fire burns in the Devil’s Creek, Montana, are recovering.  God bless you, folks!
  26. 2021 Monday Y: SPORTS NEWS I- A U.S. medical student has won an Olympics first and won GOLD in fencing.  She beat a Russian out.  Excellent.  Meanwhile, U.S. Army Lt. Amber English won a GOLD medal in skeet shooting.  In other Olympics news, four new sports are debuting this year: karate, surfing, skateboarding, and competitive climbing.   Sadly, viewing numbers for the 2021 Tokyo Summer Olympics are way, way down.  Maybe get rid of the WOKE bullshit? 
  27. 2021 Monday Z: U.S. MILITARY NEWS- As all hell continues breaking across Afghanistan, the U.S. military says that it will support its Afghan allies with continued airstrikes against Taliban and al-Qaida targets.  Light ‘em up.
