China Joe Biden is such a popular President he needs 30,000 National Guardsmen and miles of razor wire to protect him.

If he truly won the election he would not be cowering behind 30,000 troops armed with machine guns, FBI, ATF, Capitol Police, Secret Service and the CIA to protect him.

Biden is a coward and illegitimate President.

Biden has no support from the American public other than the Marxist Media, Communist China, and billionaire elites like Zuckerberg and Jack Dorsey.

China is going to order Basement Biden, who is in their pocket, to take away Americans' guns. Then China can more easily begin their global land grab, including America.

The NFL has a standard fine schedule that the league and the players’ union agreed upon, and it includes throwing the ball into the stands as a violation that results in a $7,000 fine for a first offense and $12,000 for a second offense. The concern within the league is that there could be safety issues related to fans running and leaping for a thrown football.

CHICAGO (WGN) — A man who was living inside O’Hare International Airport managed to escape detection for three months, according to prosecutors.

Aditya Singh, 36, is charged with felony criminal trespass to a restricted area of an airport and misdemeanor theft. Police said Singh claimed he was too afraid to fly home to California because of COVID-19.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Singh arrived at O’Hare from Los Angeles on Oct. 19 and lived in the airport’s security zone since then.

On Sunday, Cook County Judge Susana Ortiz reacted incredulously after a prosecutor detailed the allegations.

“So if I understand you correctly,” Ortiz said, “you’re telling me that an unauthorized, nonemployee individual was allegedly living within a secure part of the O’Hare airport terminal from Oct. 19, 2020, to Jan. 16, 2021, and was not detected? I want to understand you correctly.”

Prosecutors say two United Airlines employees asked him for credentials this weekend. He allegedly showed a badge that an operations manager had reported missing in October.

The employees called 911, and Singh was taken into custody around 11:10 a.m. Saturday in Terminal 2.

He is due back in court Jan. 27.
