She reinvigorated his campaign and gave it new life and had he listened to her and allowed her to campaign in states he wrote off, he might have been president rather than Barack Hussein Obama.

Meanwhile, the government of the United Kingdom raises its terror alert to ‘severe’ due to the high number of its citizens flocking to fight on the side of ISIS in both Iraq and in Syria among other theaters facing the same foes.
- 2015 Saturday: In Hawaii, NASA puts a six-person team into isolation within a small dome to simulate the conditions of a six-month theoretical trip to the planet, Mars. The group will have no fresh air or food and will wear spacesuits when exiting the dome.
- 2016 Monday: Off the coast of Sabratha, Italy, the Italian coast guard says that in 40 separate incidents in a single day, they have rescued 6,500 migrants in a single day.
- 2017 Tuesday: President Donald J. Trump arrives in Hurricane Harvey-ravaged Texas, to show the government is on the ball. Meanwhile, monsoon rains are trashing Mumbai, India, causing airports, schools, and other government buildings to close down until further notice.
- 2018 Wednesday: U.S. Sen. John McCain was remembered as a “true American hero” at a crowded service at the North Phoenix Baptist Church after a motorcade carried McCain’s body from the state Capitol. Meanwhile, the government reported that the economy had grown at a 4.2-percent annual rate in the April-June quarter, the best showing in nearly four years, all thanks to President Donald J. Trump.
- 2019 Thursday: In “Science” magazine, an article featuring research into the so-called ‘gay gene,’ the one gays swear exists- especially those claiming to be ‘born that way’ says there is NO single gene accounting for those attracted to members of the same sex. Now, some claim the ‘attraction’ is as high as 25-percent which most people believe is preposterous.
- 2020 Saturday: While President Trump was visiting the Gulf Coast states of Texas and Louisiana in the aftermath of Hurricane Laura- a storm in which at least 14 people died- the father of George Blake celebrates his son by repeatedly calling for calm while doing everything possible to stir up another riot. Contradictory indeed. Meanwhile, South Korea reports dramatic increases in new COVID-19 numbers, especially around the capital of Seoul where more than half of the country’s 51 million people lives. Speaking of the Bat Flu, Berlin police shut down an anti-COVID-19 protest rally demanding an end to the onerous restrictions placed upon the German populace. Some of the marchers carried American, Russian, and German Reich flags while others wore QANON t-shirts, what liberals claim to be ‘conspiracy theories.’ Elsewhere, reports regarding the costs of all the Antifa- and Black Lives Matter- funded and initiated riots are coming out. Minneapolis is down in the crapper with more than $500 million while in Bill Di Blasio’s city, they are facing a deficit of $290 million in destroyed buildings, infrastructure, and emergency rescue and police vehicles. Should have stopped the riots. Finally, the U.S. FDA okays the expanded use of the drug Remdesvir for use in ALL COVID-19 cases and not just potentially lethal ones. For those in critical condition due to the Kung Flu, within five days, 65-percent of the patients dramatically improve. What about hydroxychloroquine? Cheap and effective!
- 2020 Saturday A: Early this morning, police in Portland, Oregon, declared yet another riot after a so-called ‘peaceful protest’ once again erupted into a violent mob shortly after midnight. These peaceful ‘beatnik types’ tried to trap law enforcement officers inside the police union building and then did everything they could to set it ablaze and murder the people inside. Folks, there is an answer to this: anyone tossing a Molotov cocktail, you shoot them dead. This stops this sort of illegal activity in its tracks and puts everyone else on notice as to what you will and what you WON’T accept. This used to be the way things were done. Elsewhere, another military mishap occurs as a U.S. Army helicopter crashes into San Clemente Island 70 miles off of Coronado, California, killing two special forces soldiers and wounding several others. Finally, U.S. Director of National Intelligence ignites a firestorm among House Democrats when he says he ‘will no longer testify in person before the House about Election security.’ He will, however, provide written answers. Of course the Dems are angry, they can no longer showboat and act like a bunch of rapscallions as they do any time a member of the Trump administration testifies before them.
- 2020 Saturday B: Sadly today, we do not have the stock market or the current COVID-19 statistics due to an attempted Chi-Com attack into our systems that shut us down for nearly three days. Sorry.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
On September 17, 1975, Electric Light Orchestra would release one of the biggest selling albums in the band’s career: “Face the Music.” This album would contain two big hits, “Evil Woman” and “Strange Magic.” This would become the group’s first platinum-selling album in part to the two big hits which is why we encourage everyone to check it out as the band was becoming a stadium act in the next year or so. The lineup was somewhat altered, now featuring Jeff Lynne (vocals, guitars, synthesizers), Bev Bevin (drums/percussion), Richard Tandy (keyboards, guitars, backing vocals), Kelly Groucutt (bass, backing vocals), Melvyn Gale (cello), Mik Kaminski (violin), and Hugh McDowell (cello) and some additional vocalists. This is a must-own album for every fan of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM. Please, check it out and enjoy.

We certainly will one day. Ah, well, please seek IABD out and consider adding them to your collection.
[vi] We expect to present the music of the Jackson Five and Michael Jackson sometime in 2025-2026 so please stay tuned for future developments.

[x] Many of the Yippies are the parents of the Antifa and Black Lives Matter trash running rampant in America’s streets in 2020. Time to tune up their kids- NOW.
[xi] We began promoting the music of the Steve Miller Band beginning on Wednesday, 27-July-2011 through Wednesday, 24-August-2011 and then did a second stint on Sunday, 20-April-2014.
