airspace: report

Original Article

China ramped up its antagonism of Taiwan Saturday by sending 13 warplanes into the island’s airspace, prompting Taiwan to launch missiles to monitor the flights in response. China sent eight nuclear-capable bombers, four fighter jets and an anti-submarine patrol aircraft into Taiwan’s southwestern air defense zone near the Pratas Islands, Reuters reported. While Beijing has been sending almost daily flights over the waters in the southern part of Taiwan and nearby islands, it’s usually just one or two reconnaissance aircraft. In response, Taiwan’s air force warned away the Chinese aircraft and deployed missiles to monitor them.

Three days after Biden sworn in? This is a test. Read Michael Pillsbury (The Hundred-Year Marathon) - he knows China. He could see this coming. Their Marathon is to culminate in their ultimate takeover of the world in 2049. I imagine they are still celebrating Trump’s defeat. He was scary to them. They know Biden & Co will be pussycats. Their good fortune.

Lots of "wise guys" in the Republican Senate caucus, but if there are still any "wise men or women" left they need to have that "time to give up the car keys" with Mitch right now. I suspect that Japan and India are already taking notice of what China bought when they arranged "Slow Joe's" "election."

China was afraid of President Trump because they knew he would take action. This senility clown with an ear piece will have to wait what the community punk will tell him to do! Oh, that one is busy playing golf, he exhausted himself campaigning for this fake pres...…. Taiwan, I am afraid you are on your own! Elaine Chao's father is probably already packing to return to Mainland China and will be welcomed because they fed the commies lots of secrets!

A Native American tribe this week criticized the Biden administration’s order halting agency approvals for oil, gas, and coal permitting on federal lands including tribal lands. (Snip) The Ute Indian Tribe of the Uintah and Ouray Reservation, which has run an oil-and-gas operation on its 4.5 million-acre reservation for more than 70 years, requested Thursday an exemption for tribal lands from the Interior Department order that halts agencies from issuing permits and leases on mineral production for 60 days.

Arizona Republican Party Chairwoman Kelli Ward, an ally of former President Donald Trump, was reelected to the role on Jan. 22, fending off several challengers for the role, after Trump endorsed her for another two-year term. She won 51.5 percent of the vote, to 48.5 percent for challenger Sergio Arellano in the second round of voting. In a short call last week, Trump called on Arizonans to reelect Ward, saying that he gives her his “complete and total endorsement,” due to her stances on a number of issues.“She is a terrific person. She is a person I know. You’ll never find anybody as dedicated to every aspect we’re all dedicated to"

Sen.

It’s too valuable not to, and we still need the oil. So, it’s either going to be shipped to other countries, including China, which has not the same type of environmental regulations that we have when it comes to the processing of

TAIPEI, Taiwan—The U.S State Department has voiced concerns about China’s continued military aggression against Taiwan, after China breached the island’s air defense zone with 13 military aircraft. “We urge Beijing to cease its military, diplomatic, and economic pressure against Taiwan and instead engage in meaningful dialogue with Taiwan’s democratically elected representatives,” State Department spokesperson Ned Price said in a statement on Jan. 23. He added: “We will continue to assist Taiwan in maintaining a sufficient self-defense capability. Our commitment to Taiwan is rock-solid and contributes to the maintenance of peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait and within the region.”

Several unions that eagerly endorsed President Joe Biden during the 2020 presidential election are now learning the hard way what it means to support Democrat policies. During his first day in office, the newly-inaugurated president revoked the construction permit for the Keystone XL oil pipeline, thus destroying thousands of jobs. And not just any jobs — but union jobs. TC Energy Corp., the Canadian company that shares ownership of the pipeline with the Alberta government, had estimated that 10,000 jobs — in addition to the 1,000 already established — would be created in 2021 alone thanks to the construction of the pipeline.

As Democrats plunge ahead with a post-term impeachment trial of President Donald Trump, a key question remains: Will Chief Justice Roberts take the case? Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky says he won’t--making the exercise “a fake, partisan impeachment,” the lawmaker told Fox News’ Sean Hannity Friday. Paul claimed Roberts has “privately said he’s not supposed to come unless it’s an impeachment of the president.” According to the US Constitution, “when the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside”--a requirement not made for any other impeachment case.

Yeah, I’m sure that’s going to change his mind.Regardless, another topic also came up regarding who the future of the GOP will be over the next several years. Romney mentioned some names, and be warned, you may want to stop sipping your coffee before reading them.

On Friday night, writing for The Washington Post, conservative attorney George Conway laid out the way forward to investigate former President Donald Trump for his criminal conduct in office now that he is a private citizen — and prosecute him where appropriate. "Trump departed the White House a possible — many would say probable, provable — criminal, one who has left a sordid trail of potential and actual misconduct that remains to be fully investigated," wrote Conway. "A desperate fear of criminal indictment may even explain Trump's willingness to break any number of laws to stay in office despite losing his reelection bid, democracy and the Constitution be damned."

Steve Stivers (R., Ohio) in an interview with Yahoo Finance Live. President Joe Biden has called for individual $1,400 payments in his $1.9 trillion relief plan—which some Republicans argue is too much and some progressives say is too little. Stivers opposes additional stimulus checks as the proposal currently stands. The Biden administration has said it prefers
