This report has led many 9-11 Truthers to blame George W. Bush for allowing the jihadist scum to attack the United States so the President could launch a war with Iraq. This is a bunch of felonious bull crap as EVERYONE—we repeat—EVERYONE believed Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.

- 2012 Sunday: India elects Pranab Mukherjee as its new President.
- 2013 Monday: Scientific studies reveal that dolphins have unique names for one another in much the same way as do human beings. Elsewhere, frenzied crowds of Roman Catholics in Rio de Janeiro mobbed the car carrying Pope Francis as he returned to his home continent for the first time as pontiff, embarking on a seven-day visit.

Meanwhile, in San Antonio, Texas, one of the worst incidents of tragedy in human trafficking occurs as 10 illegal aliens die in the back of an overheated semi-truck trailer.
- 2018 Sunday: In response to a hateful speech by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, President Donald J. Trump sends out a Tweet in which, he warns the s-hole nation of “CONSEQUENCES.” The Iranians would be wise to listen to the 45th president as he is not- we repeat NOT- the 44th president who was Pro-Iranian to the bone. Meanwhile, in anti-gun Toronto, Canada, a shooter kills 2 and wounds 13 before being shot dead by law enforcement.
- 2019 Monday: The latest Marvel Comics superhero film, “Avengers: Endgame,” surpasses “Avatar” as the world’s highest-grossing film pulling in $2.9 billion. People love the comic book movies it says a lot about the public paying big bucks to watch this schlock. Meanwhile, Pakistani President Imran Khan meets with President Donald J. Trump at the White House on a state visit. Elsewhere, in northwestern Syria at Maarat al-Numan, Russian warplanes in support of Syrian government forces kill at least 31 civilians. Finally, President Donald J. Trump says that the ‘U.S. could win the war in Afghanistan in one week.’ “I just don’t want to kill 10 million people. If I wanted to win that war, Afghanistan would be wiped off the face of the earth.” (Mr. President, this is why God gave the United States the neutron bomb- use them!).
- 2020 Wednesday: The U.S. State Department orders the closure- by this Friday- of the People’s Republic of (Communist) China’s consulate in Houston, Texas. The Chinese within the facility immediately start a bonfire with which to eliminate all sensitive documents but everyone knows the Houston consulate (and most of the others) are hotbeds for hostile spying on everything in the area: U.S. air force and other military bases, the U.S. space program, and bio research, especially into the Chinese-manufactured Bat Flu pandemic sweeping the planet. Meanwhile reports inform the world that every day PRC warplanes are buzzing Taiwan, a free nation the communists are determined to reclaim. STAND STRONG TAIWAN! WE ADVOCATE FOR A RETURN OF THE TWO-CHINA POLICY BY WHICH, TAIWAN BECOMES A FREE AND INDEPENDENT NATION AS THEY WERE BEFORE THE UNITED NATIONS THREW THEM UNDER THE BUS IN FAVOR OF THE PRC- CHI-COM MONEY BOUGHT THEM TAIWAN’S SEAT IN THE U.N. AND ON THE U.N. SECURITY COUNCIL.
- 2020 Wednesday A: President Donald J. Trump- with Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr, FBI Director Christopher A. Wray, Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Chad Wolf, and numerous others- announces to the nation Operation Legend, a partnership between federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies to reclaim the streets from violent left-wing (and we believe communist China-funded) mobs that are murdering innocent civilians and harming countless others in numerous cities around the country. These are standard, anti-crime-fighting activities the federal government has been carrying out for decades and all left-wing mayors and governors have been put on notice.
- 2020 Wednesday B: Here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 15,008,046 confirmed cases, UP by 233,159 cases, 617,902 confirmed deaths, UP by 6,303 deaths, and 8,511,330 confirmed recoveries, UP by 171,288 recoveries.

(The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt MF-ers).
- 2020 Wednesday C: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 413,576 confirmed cases, 7,883 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 1,418 confirmed cases, 24 confirmed deaths, and 1,084 confirmed recoveries. Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 48,575 confirmed cases, 1,465 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries. Shame on these flipping Democrats. Let’s take a look at one more state, Florida: 379,619 confirmed number of cases, 5,459 confirmed number of deaths, and like Blue States, NO number of confirmed recoveries. What’s up, Governor Ron DeSantis? Acting like a Blue State governor?

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
Now a quartet following the departure of founding member Roger Hodgson, Supertramp went back into the studio and delivered “Brother Where You Bound,” an album that came out on May 14, 1985. The theme of the album revolved around the Cold War and music critics actually LIKED the album. The band now featured Rick Davies (keyboards, vocals, harmonicas), John Anthony Helliwell (saxophones, flutes, vocals), Dougie Thompson (bass), and Bob Seibenberg (drums and percussion). Joining them were David Gilmour, Scott Gorham (Thin Lizzy among others), and Marty Walsh (guitars) along with some horns, vocalists, and others to round out the sound. We hope you will investigate this album as it is indeed a superlative effort, one we hope you will enjoy. Look for it wherever you shop for the absolute best in rock music. You will be glad you did.
