Meanwhile, U.S. Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps received six-month suspension from sponsor organization USA Swimming due to a recent drunk driving charge; Phelps plans to enter a treatment program.
- 2015 Tuesday: New reports surface that Hillary Clinton’s private email server- the one in her basement near the crapper that stored up to 55,000 pages of confidential documents during her time as secretary of state underwent more assaults than previously suspected and/or confirmed. Additional attacks came from communist China (say it ain’t so!), Germany, and South Korea. Hillary said only information on her Pilates training and daughter Chelsea’s wedding were on that acid-washed and bleach-bitted server. Uh, okay.
- 2016 Thursday: According to CBS News, reports say that the markets believe that ‘IF Donald J. Trump wins the White House in three weeks, the markets will tank whereas if Hillary Clinton should win the election, everything will be peachy keen. Uh, okay. Meanwhile as Hurricane Matthew continues making landfall along the coastlines of Florida, Georgia, and the Carolinas, at least 300,000 homes and businesses are without power and 2 million or more are trying to escape the affected regions.
- 2017 Friday: The board of directors of the Weinstein Company said movie mogul Harvey Weinstein was on indefinite leave the company he founded amid countless sexual harassment allegations made against him and the subsequent internal investigations into the worthless POS.

Elsewhere, a human rights report says that in Iraq, protests over rampant government corruption, rising unemployment, and poor living conditions over the past five days that 100 people have been slain and at least 4,000 injured. Sever your ties with Iran and you would do better. Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of Hong Kong freedom fighters take to the streets to protest the newly imposed ban on wearing face masks at protests.
- 2020 Tuesday: A House committee recommends the bust-up of the BIG TECH companies which cannot come soon enough. As everyone knows, Google CEO Sundar Pichai discriminates against conservative voices. We hope the U.S. government would strip him of citizenship and deport him back to Punjabistan, his family included. Elsewhere in government, the U.S. Department of Justice announced today that there are ‘no COVID-19 exemptions in the U.S. Constitution that allows dictatorial governors and mayors (Gretchen Whitmer- are YOU listening?) to shutter all of society. Henceforth, all such actions must cease. Meanwhile, the Department of Transportation booted a union demand four making the wearing of masks without exception. We must remember that early in the Chi-Vi Storm, doctors such as Tony Fauci said that masks did no good when it comes to battling a virus. Then, all of a sudden, wearing masks and possibly goggles- as Dr. Fauci suggested- became the norm.
- 2020 Tuesday A: A recent Axios-Ipsos poll suggests that minds have not changed with President Donald J. Trump coming down with the Xi Jinping Bat Flu. Speaking of the Kung Flu, the World Health Organization reports that 1-in-10 are COVID-19-infected around the globe. Moving on, CNN dimwit Chris Cuomo calls President Trump’s bout of the Chi-Vi and subsequent return to the White House a ‘publicity stunt’ while his appearance on the Truman Balcony at the White House in which, he waved to supporters and news media professionals on site as somehow being akin to Benito Mussolini speaking to adoring crowds from the Palazzo Venezia. Uh, okay. Regarding the Chinese Virus, the White House is bucking strict guidelines for emergency release of COVID-19 vaccine; so says the New York Times. Regarding government, a desperate Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, flipflops on recent Wuhan Virus Crisis comments saying that “REMOTE VOTING in the case of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to replace the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg is not right.’ Prior to this comment, he was all for remote and attendance in the world’s (so-called) greatest deliberative body.’ For senators ill with COVID-19, attend sessions in full Hazmat suits.
- 2020 Tuesday B: Recent polls now report that “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s lead over President Donald J. Trump has now become an insurmountable 16 points. Wow. It’s all over! Yeah, right. Friends, we are more determined than ever to show up at polling places in person and to send these Beijing-loving leftists into the next dimension. Meanwhile, the world’s ‘most beloved pontiff’- Pope Francis- announces that capitalism has failed and that collectivism is the only way forward, due to the Chi-Vi encircling the world. Friends, this is reason enough to hope that the next pope will be from European stock and not that of the flipping Third World. Catholics here at the blog wish he would step down and return to Argentina. Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms ‘warn the United States not to cross any of their red lines’ as though we should be afraid. After the attack on Indian troops earlier in the year in the Himalayas, the Indian army returned and kicked ass on the communist Chinese, reclaiming their territory.
- 2020 Tuesday C: Just in: fiery lead guitarist with Van Halen- Eddie Van Halen- is dead at age 65 from a losing battle with long-term throat cancer. Add another member to Rock-and-Roll Heaven on this date. He died in Santa Monica, California.
- 2020 Tuesday D: Here are today’s Chi-Com Horseshoe Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 35,511,291 confirmed cases, UP by 172,166 cases, 1,044,090 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,370 deaths, and 24,770,288 confirmed recoveries, UP by 198,979 recoveries. Here are the numbers for the United States: 7,553,392 confirmed cases, UP by 8,727 new cases, 213,462 confirmed deaths, UP by 87 new deaths, and 4,905,362 confirmed recoveries, UP by 2,573 new recoveries.
- 2020 Tuesday E: 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: 838,956 confirmed cases, 16,205 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 13,007 confirmed cases, 157 confirmed deaths, and 10,470 confirmed recoveries. Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 94,275 confirmed cases, 2,254 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, Montana: 15,633 confirmed number of cases, 192 confirmed number of deaths, and 10,172 confirmed number of recoveries. Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there. Here they are: 272,309 confirmed cases, 1,757 confirmed deaths, and 204,355 confirmed recoveries. Watch out for car bombs or Hamas thugs coming up out of the sewers and kidnapping you or your lovely wife.
- 2020 Tuesday F: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,772.76, DOWN 375.88 points (-1.34%). Next, the NASDAQ: 11,154.60, DOWN 177.88 points (-1.57%). Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,360.95, DOWN 47.68 points (-1.40%). The price of GOLD is $1,883.10 per troy oz., -25.70 (-1.35%) while the price of SILVER is $23.26 per troy ounce, -0.656 (-2.74%). The price of PLATINUM is $860.00 per troy oz, -10.30 (-1.18%) while the price of COPPER is $2.93 per pound, -0.033 (-1.11%). The price of PALLADIUM is $2,350.00 per troy oz., -9.10 (-0.40%). The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $39.86 per barrel, -0.81 (-1.99%). Today, COCOA is $2,449.00 per metric ton, +21.00 (+0.86). As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.79 communist Chinese yuan. By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.85 euros. Communist China manipulates its currency, a known fact which is why the world must disengage with them and bring our supply chain home- ASAP.
- 2020 Tuesday G: Tomorrow night is the debate between Vice President Michael Pence and Senator Kamala Harris. Should be better than last week’s slugfest but then…one never knows…meanwhile, Democrat charges of the day against President Donald J. Trump: ‘he’s like Mussolini, he’s a super-spreader of the Chi-Vi even though news media hacks have been captured off-camera stripping the masks off their faces.
- 2020 Tuesday H: Today, Greg Kelly on Newsmax reports the Trump-Russia Collusion HOAX was a creation of the Hillary Rodham Clinton campaign. Today, DNI John Ratcliffe declassifies notes compiled by then-CIA Director John Brennan from a meeting at the Obama White House in 2016 in which, President Obama, then-National Security Adviser Susan Rice, Dennis McDonough, the chief of staff, and others, in which, Brennan was informing President Obama about a plan hatched by one of Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy advisors on July 28, 2016, in which, Democrats would claim interference by Russian security services on behalf of then- candidate Donald J. Trump with which to dirty him and to push Hillary across the finish line in November 2016.
- 2020 Tuesday I: Not sure what else the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party gofers are up to stick around today so and find out. Update: White House adviser Stephen Miller becomes the 11th person to test positive for the Chi-Vi. Meanwhile, Puerto Rico Governor Wanda Vázquez Garced urged her citizens to vote for President Donald J. Trump, that the 45th president is their best friend. Elsewhere, Hurricane Delta picks up steam and becomes a Cat 4 storm what with 130 mph winds. It is expected to sweep across the Yucatan and then descend on the U.S. gulf coast, possibly New Orleans- yet again.
- 2020 Tuesday J: We reported earlier in the day the death of Eddie Van Halen. Singer Johnny Nash died at age 80. Known for hits like “I Can See Clearly Now” and “Rock Me Baby,” and “(What A) Wonderful World,” he died in his hometown of Houston, Texas. He continued releasing albums up until 1986 and compilations long after that. Add another one to Rock-and-Roll Heaven.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
Roy Wood’s Wizzard released a belated effort, “Main Street,” on July 12, 2000, an album originally recorded in 1975. Once again, his band featured the lineup of Wood himself on numerous instruments and vocals as well as former Move bandmate Rick Price (bass/vocals/percussion), Bob Brady (keyboards, horns, and vocals), Nick Pentelow (saxophones and woodwinds), Mike Burney (horns), Charlie Grima (drums), and one or two other musicians to round out the sound. The album filled in some blanks and featured more of Wood’s jazzier tunes which makes it a joy to behold. As always, the writing and lyrics are superb as anywhere Roy Wood is means there is a great deal of talent injected into whatever effort upon which he applies himself. Please, check it out and enjoy because the AICPENDBLOG.COM recommends it for all readers of the blog.
