Thank you, President Obama, for stirring up violence and anti-American protests.

- 2015 Monday: In what many believe to have been a set-up event, Texas authorities arrest 14-year-old Ahmed “Clock Boy” Mohamed at his school following his presentation of his so-called ‘science project’ that looked suspiciously like a BOMB. Being a Muslim, one would think he and his family would have done something else rather than present something appearing to be a BOMB. Eventually, he would be released, both President Barack Hussein Obama and Facebook boy wonder Mark Zuckerberg sent supportive tweets. Of course, the punk became the symbol of American intolerance and Islamophobia. Where is he now?
- 2016 Wednesday: Imprisoned soldier Bradley Manning agrees to end his hunger strike when the U.S. military commits to his gender reassignment surgery thus making him Chelsea Manning. This is the guy who helped WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange leak information on the Iraq War which embarrassed both the United States and current President Barack Hussein Obama.
- 2017 Thursday: In Dhi Qar Governorate in southern Iraq, two ISIS-directed terror attacks claim the lives of at least 60 people and wound countless others. Wow, the religion of peace strikes again!

Democrats beware.
- 2019 Saturday: Only with the help of Iranian Revolutionary Guard direction and cash, Houthi rebels in Yemen carry out a stunning attack on Saudi Arabia’s Abqaiq Oil Refinery with the use of drones carrying explosives. The Saudis were caught with their pants down, the attack eliminated half of the country’s oil production and about five percent of the world’s which immediately drives oil prices UP. Time to whack the Iranians and to eliminate the Houthi scum as a threat.
- 2020 Monday: Here are the figures for the carnage in Chicago over the past weekend: 53 people shot and 10 killed. Next, down in Florida, disgraced gubernatorial candidate, Andrew Gillum, Democrat, caught in a hotel room with a male hooker and a crack pipe announced today that he is ‘bisexual.’ Okie dokie. Speaking of Florida, Tropical Storm Sally, roiling off the west coast of Florida, is expected to be at hurricane strength when its expected landfall slams into Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi. Speaking of natural disasters, the out-of-control wildfires roaring through three western states have burned millions of acres. The death toll currently is 24 in California, 10 in Oregon, and a toddler in Washington state. “Pro-China Joe” Biden at his only campaign stop today in Wilmington, Delaware, blames President Trump for the catastrophe, calling him a ‘climate arsonist’ and noting that the United States faces four different calamities: (1) a crumbling economy; (2) a pandemic; (3) white supremacy/white privilege, and (4) out-of-control climate change for which, President Donald J. Trump bears responsibility for all. Wow. Meanwhile, in California, President Trump meets with the state’s leaders in Sacramento to discuss what must be done to help the state overcome the blazing forests.
- 2020 Monday A: In Qatar, peace talks between the United States, the Afghani government, and the murderous Taliban continue. Elsewhere, Politico reports that the Iranian regime is planning on assassinating U.S. ambassador to South Africa Lana Marks. Let’s nuke Iran and get it over with, shall we? Speaking of ambassadors, U.S. ambassador to communist China Terry Branstad announces he will be stepping down. Branstad, as you all know, is the former governor of Iowa. On the home front, liberal outrage continues to grow over President Trump’s MASSIVE rallies in Nevada the previous day in which, most were not wearing masks or socially distant from one another. In response, the president called the gatherings, ‘peaceful protests.’ The Dems have no leg upon which to stand. Speaking of Trump, national polls continue to show “Pro-China Joe” Biden cleaning Trump’s clock with an ‘insurmountable lead’ of 51-percent to 46-percent. Elsewhere, Amazon.com announces it will be hiring another 100,000 workers so it can keep up with the demand for goods. Employees will begin at $15 per hour.
- 2020 Monday B: Sadly, New York City Mayor Bill Di Blasio says this year’s Thanksgiving Day Macy’s parade will be VIRTUAL. NASA reports that a sign of life exists in the atmosphere of Venus, the second-most inner planet of the Solar System, phosphine gas which corresponds with microorganisms that can live without oxygen such as at a sewage treatment plant. It is interesting to note that between 33 to 38 miles above the surface of the inhospitable planet is found a region comparable to temperatures and pressures found on planet Earth. Fascinating if this is true. We shall see. Folks, we believe life exists across the Universe, that places we consider to be inhospitable to human life can host other forms of life. Elsewhere, Jesse Watters on the Fox News Channel’s “The Five” showed a clip of ghosts captured on the Gettysburg Battlefield in Pennsylvania. We believe this to be true, too.
- 2020 Monday C: Folks, here are the numbers for the Wuhan Waltz, you know, COVID-19 Chinese Bat Flu Virus Crisis, the pandemic they started but blame on the U.S.: Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 29,114,477 confirmed cases, +317,055, 925,596, confirmed deaths, +4,654, and 19,693,071 confirmed recoveries, +182,021.

Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 83,312 confirmed cases, 2,080 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Let’s look at one other state: Mississippi- currently, they have 90,018 confirmed cases, 2,706 confirmed deaths, but for some unknown reason NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Tate Reeves, what kind of Republican are you?
- 2020 Monday D: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 27,993.33, UP 327.69 points (+1.18%). Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ: 11,056.65, UP 203.11 points (+1.87%). Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,383.54, UP 42.57 points (+1.27%).

Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.81 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.84 euros.
- 2020 Monday E: Tonight’s Monday Night Football lineup features two games: Pittsburgh Steelers at New York Giants and Tennessee Titans at Denver Broncos. In the opener, it’s the Steelers 26, the New York Giants 16. The nightcap was a slow-moving dull affair: Tennessee Titans 16, Denver Broncos 14. Initial reports regarding ratings is that the opening weekend- not including today- is down anywhere from 18-24 percent. The maxim is true: “If YOU WOKE, YOU WILL GO BROKE.” We here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM have all agreed not to watch anymore games until the spoiled crybaby players protest in their OFF-TIME and put their fortunes where their mouths are. NBA? F**k them.
