- 2016 Friday: The United Nations says that the Syrian city of Aleppo is a “Humanitarian Crisis” as peace talks between the Syrian government, its allies, and the ISIS criminals falters. People are being bombed, they’re being strafed, they are starving to death, and disease stalks the weakened among them. And the U.S. military-industrial complex wants the United States to involve itself even deeper in this quagmire.
- 2017 Saturday: The Trump administration’s Health and Human Services Director Tom Price resigns his position today after being blasted and criticized for misusing funds. No proof is ever offered but you know the libs- they never stop. Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is in Beijing ahead of President Trump’s visit to the communist nation. Elsewhere, Canadian-American game show host, Monty Hall of “Let’s Make A Deal” fame dies at age 96.
- 2018 Sunday: The Federal Bureau of Investigation- after being bullied by Democrats- announces that it is expanding its probe into the supposed wrongdoings of U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. The Dems are trying to smear the stellar judge in their attempt to deny him a seat on the high court and to repel President Donald J. Trump’s second SCOTUS nominee.
- 2019 Monday: As testimony in the growing impeachment inquiry by the Democrats to take out the 45th president, Donald J. Trump tweets that he should be able to ‘meet the so-called whistleblower’ whom most believe is a lying POS. The Dems will do everything possible to protect his identity but we know who he is. Meanwhile, the “Pro-China Joe” Biden 2020 campaign asks the TV networks to stop booking Rudy Giuliani. They accuse the president’s lawyer of ‘spreading lies about the candidate and his son, Hunter.’ Funny thing is, on Wednesday, September 23, 2020, the U.S. Senate committee investigating the Bidens and their corruption- especially in the Ukraine and in communist China demonstrate that Hunter’s actions were indeed ‘criminal’ and in need of further investigation. Not looking good for you, Joe…
- 2020 Wednesday: Reviews regarding last night’s first 2020 presidential debate continue coming in with most believing that President Trump was debating not one but two people. Moderator Chris Wallace- who should be stripped of all future debates- did everything he could to help keep “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s head above the roiling waters. Today, the former VP is on a ‘train tour,’ running from Cleveland, Ohio, to Johnstown, Pennsylvania. Crowds are incredibly sparse for the stumbling bumbler. It would appear that in last night’s debate, President Trump utilized the same strategy he employed in his VP debate with Congressman Paul Ryan, R-WI, Mitt Romney’s vice-presidential pick. In that ugly 2012 matchup, Biden interrupted, derided, and lampooned Mr. Ryan. It was ugly, it turned off millions of viewers, but everyone said, “Joe did a hell of a job.” Whoa. At least Telemundo, the Spanish language juggernaut in a poll released last night, one we reported, that viewers said Trump won the matchup by an overwhelming 66-percent to 33-percent. Latinos love their blood sports. The Atlantic Magazine says the ‘rest of the debates should be canceled.’
- 2020 Wednesday A: In New York City, more than 100,000 mail-in ballots have gone to people with the incorrect information emblazoned on them. The state says it will make things right; however, what will happen with the messed-up ballots and who will be responsible for their destruction? Things continue going from bad to worse. Meanwhile, Glenn Beck reports on his program this morning that in Harris County, Texas, Joe Biden surrogate Dallas Jones was caught red-handed in a scheme to have hirelings fill out more than 700,000 mail-in ballots. An investigation featuring former federal law enforcement officers busted Jones outright. We hope this situation can be repaired and that the participants in yet another fraudulent vote theft shenanigan find themselves busting rocks in Leavenworth, Kansas, for 30 years.
- 2020 Wednesday B: Judge Amy Coney Barrett will be meeting with 10 senators on Capitol Hill today even though most Democratic senators are keeping her at arm’s length. Speaking of Capitol Hill, Lindsey Graham’s Senate committee is grilling fired former FBI Director James “The Saint” Comey virtually today, trying to pull answers from him about the scam of Crossfire Hurricane and the attempt to bring down Donald Trump, both as candidate and as president. This man must do time in federal prison. Graham says, ‘what happened at the FBI and the Obama Justice Department is a system failure.’ Elsewhere, the ‘Happiest Place on Earth’- Disneyland- says it will begin laying off 30,000 workers due to the harsh shutdown restrictions imposed upon the entertainment destination by Gov. Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom. Finally, failed Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer- a woman who keeps her stated in the lockbox while permitting her husband to drive around the state and to take his boat out on whatever lake he chooses- announces that she is extending the CHI-VI lockdown that was set to end tomorrow until at least October 31. What a pity.
- 2020 Wednesday C: A judge in Las Vegas, Nevada, rules that Mandalay Bay Hotel and Resort is liable for the $800 million payout to the victims of the October 31, 2017, mass shooting that occurred on its property. The shooter, Stephen Paddock, carried load upon load of what turned out to be firearms, ammunition, and surveillance equipment and then began shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival from several adjoining windows 32 floors up. By the time law enforcement and hotel security got around to storming the hotel room, the damage was done and the shooter lay dead, slain by his own hand. Meanwhile, the police chief of Los Angeles, California, says that attacks and assaults on police officers have skyrocketed by 156% from this time in 2019.
- 2020 Wednesday D: TV ratings for last night’s first presidential debate are 64 million viewers. It is interesting to note that the Proud Boys, brought up in last night’s debate by moderator Chris Wallace (a failure and a partisan hack) added Trump’s words to both their logo and t-shirts: “Stand by and stand back.” No one asks “Pro-China Joe” Biden to disavow Blacks Lives Matter, Resist Fascism, or Antifa. This leads us to speculate that since the Proud Boys jumped in with the t-shirt, that they are receiving funding from the SAME FINANCIAL SOURCES that are also funding the left-wing groups. Once again, this confirms to us that the Chi-Coms and their Democratic stooges are the ones funneling money to all these violent groups as it serves their overall purposes: the destabilization of the United States and its institutions.
- 2020 Wednesday E: On Neil Cavuto’s show, guest Charlie Gasparino tells Neil that many of his Wall Street friends and colleagues fear big changes in tax policy as well as regulations should Joe Biden win in November and has a Democrat House and Senate. A ‘President Joe Biden’ would return the mandate to the Affordable Care Act which would end full-time employment and return the norm of 28 hours or less per week. No matter what Dems about say about the humongous economy of the Obama-Biden years, it simply did not exist- Obamacare kept every job ‘part-time’ except for union jobs and they were able to avoid Obamacare costs because the administration gave them carve-outs. Elsewhere, the Sunday afternoon game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Tennessee Titans has been postponed due to a number of Chi-Vi cases among the Titans. Stay tuned for further developments.
- 2020 Wednesday F: Here are today’s Comrade Xi Jinping’s Chi-Com Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 33,785,178 confirmed cases, UP by 301,058 cases, 1,010,147 confirmed deaths, UP by 6,065 deaths, and 23,448,934 confirmed recoveries, UP by 236,031 recoveries. Here are the numbers for the United States: 7,322,022 confirmed cases, UP by 92,463 new cases, 210,123 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,788 new deaths, and 3,920,920 confirmed recoveries, UP by 49,965 new recoveries. (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt motherf**kers). Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 244,494 confirmed cases, 1,569 confirmed deaths, and 174,506 confirmed recoveries.
- 2020 Wednesday G: 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: 819,340 confirmed cases, 15,838 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 12,436 confirmed cases, 134 confirmed deaths, and 10,256 confirmed recoveries. Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 91,107 confirmed cases, 2,219 confirmed deaths, but like California, the palooka-faced 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, Wyoming: 5,948 confirmed number of cases, 50 confirmed deaths, and 4,791 confirmed number of recoveries- thank you, Governor Mark Gordon for sharing the number of recoveries.
- 2020 Wednesday H: Here are today’s BIG Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,781.70, UP a whopping 329.04 points (+1.20%). Next, the NASDAQ: 11,167.57, UP 82.26 points (+0.74%). Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,363.00, UP 27.53 points (+0.83%). The price of GOLD is $1,893.70 per troy oz., -1.80 (-0.09%) while the price of SILVER is $23.45 per troy ounce, -0.044 (-0.19%). The price of PLATINUM is $903.70 per troy oz, -5.50 (-0.60%) while the price of COPPER is $3.03 per pound, 0.0045 (-0.15%). The price of PALLADIUM is $2,330.50 per troy oz, +1.20 (+0.05%). The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $40.02 per barrel, -0.20 (-0.50%). Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.79 Chi-Com yuan. Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 22.41.
- 2020 Wednesday I: As always, we never know what the heck is going on in the ongoing attempt by the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party patsies in the war to get Trump but you can bet it’s going to be good so make sure you check back in later for the latest updates!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
Electric Light Orchestra released an archival live album, “Live at Winterland 1976,” on March 28, 1998. The album featured the lineup of 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. The band was on the road promoting “Face the Music” and were drawing massive crowds. This is a superb addition to the group’s growing discography, one we hope you will beat the bushes searching for as it contains some stellar tunes such as “Evil Woman,” “Strange Magic,” and “Roll Over Beethoven.” Excellent music by one of the all-time best bands of the era, one that sounds as good today as they did back then. Amazing.
