- 2015 Sunday: Much to the delight of communist China, the parliament of Nepal elects as its next prime minister Khadga Prasad Sharma Oli, a member of the Nepal Unified-Marxist-Leninist Party. Meanwhile, following the bombing at a Peace Rally in Ankara, Turkey, the previous day, the death toll soars to 128 with scores more wounded. The attack occurred- coincidentally- as a Kurdish group marched to protest attacks on their fellow Kurds in Syria. Elsewhere, the Pentagon announces it will pay victims of the airstrike that killed loads of people in an Afghan hospital where Doctors without Borders took care of injured Afghans. At least 12 medical providers died as did 10 patients along with another 33 missing.
- 2016 Tuesday: Samsung, the big South Korean tech firm announces that it won’t manufacture its Note 7 phones after loads of reports that faulty batteries cause the damned things to ignite. Meanwhile, as Hurricane Matthew continues hammering the coastlines of Georgia and the Carolinas, at least 30 people are dead. Elsewhere, following House Speaker Paul Ryan’s dissing of Donald Trump, the GOP presidential nominee fires back at the GOP establishment in two tweets: “It is so nice that the shackles have been taken off me and I can now fight for America the way I want to.” In a second tweet, he wrote: “Disloyal R’s are far more difficult than Crooked Hillary. They come at you from all sides. They don’t know how to win–I will teach them!” And he sure as heck did which is why many RINOS joined with the Dems in trying to destroy him with the ‘Trump-Russia Collusion’ scam.
- 2017 Wednesday: As fires continue to rage across the liberal paradise of California, at least 23 have died, hundreds are missing, and those who can still flee are fleeing for their lives. This is an annual occurrence and it happens because the Democrats who control the state would rather divert taxpayer dollars to fund CalPERS, the state’s public employees’ retirement and benefits fund, rather than to manage the forests as they should and would if they gave a damn about the citizens of the state. Meanwhile, a bogus report calls “President Trump unstable” and former White House advisor Steve Bannon says the president has only about ‘a thirty-percent chance of making it through his first term’ because he suspects enemies of the president will try to remove him via using the 25th Amendment. Meanwhile, senior U.S. officials and world leaders pressure Trump NOT to pull out of the (wonderful, Obama-era) JCPOA, the nuclear deal with the Iranians. He does so anyway. Finally, the Weinstein Company says, ‘it knew about the payoffs for sexual abuse on behalf of Harvey Weinstein for TWO YEARS.’ Yet, they did nothing until Harvey found himself in trouble. Gee whiz.
- 2018 Thursday: Cat 4 Hurricane Michael flattens towns across Florida as it continues ripping up the southeastern coastline. Residents say it looks like bombs dropped. Elsewhere, the Turkish government claims it ‘has videos of the murder of Saudi-American journalist Jamal Khashoggi,’ murdered within the Saudi consulate, dismembered with a saw and removed to parts unknown.’ Yet, the Turks NEVER release the footage. We are curious as to why? Meanwhile, Amnesty International releases a report claiming the ‘Trump administration separated 6,000 illegal alien families over the course of four months.’ Oh, boohoo, stop coming and you won’t be separated.
- 2019 Friday: The New York Times runs a story in which it claims that lawyer for President Donald J. Trump- Rudy Giuliani- is under investigation for his ‘work in the Ukraine.’ This, of course, is tied to the impeachment probe. Nothing would come of it. Meanwhile, a sobbing former ambassador to the Ukraine- Marie Yovanovitch- sobs that ‘she was told (the evil) President Donald J. Trump wanted her out.’ He wanted you out because YOU believed YOUR agenda was more important than HIS WAS. Finally, the Trump administration announces it has reached an agreement with the Chi-Coms over the Phase 1 portion of the U.S.-Sino Trade Deal, the one that would spring the release of COVID-19 onto an unsuspecting globe within a couple of months.

- 2020 Sunday A: First, Hurricane Delta slams into the Louisiana coastline, yet another hurricane to do so this year leading climate activists to screech, “CLIMATE CHANGE.” Next, Senate Republicans urge Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin to continue negotiating with House Democrats over the stalled Chi-Vi relief bill. Speaking of the Chinese Virus, ICU rooms across the world are beginning to fill up again with NEW cases of the Wuhan Flu attacking the nations of the world. Belgium, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, France, and Spain report more cases per capita than the United States. The Chi-Coms strike again.
- 2020 Sunday B: Louisiana Senator John Kennedy says that IF “Pro-China Joe” Biden somehow wins the election next month that he will be little more than a ‘VESSEL’ in which, the far-left of the Democratic Party will gain perpetual power.’ We cannot allow him to win nor can we allow the Chi-Coms and their tools such as Bernie Sanders and the Baby Evita to increase their hold on the United States. Moving on, the U.S. Department of Agriculture readjusts the crop losses Iowa sustained this year when first a drought and then a freak wind storm destroyed countless acres of farmland. The Dept. of Ag says 850 thousand acres were lost. We hope the federal government will be able to provide aid quickly to the citizens and businesses of the state.
- 2020 Sunday C: Reuters News Agency reports that Iranian-backed Iraqi militias, charged with rocket attacks on the Green Zone says that if the U.S. is not out of the former Baathist state, they will commence violent actions to drive them unless they’re gone by January 2021. Meanwhile, Armenia and Azerbaijan enter a fragile truce over the embattled Nagorno-Karabakh Province, a place controlled by the latter nation but full of citizens from the former. Fighting that has been ongoing since September 27 has claimed the lives of at least 300 people on both sides and injured numerous others.
- 2020 Sunday D: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Yellow Bat Flu- the -so-called Pelosi Pox: Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 37,267,921 confirmed cases, +248,540, 1,073,980, confirmed deaths, +3,827, and 25,923,574 confirmed recoveries, +211,948. Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 7,851,080 confirmed cases, up 64,916 from yesterday’s reporting, 218,129 confirmed deaths, UP 810, and 5,025,528 confirmed recoveries, UP 15,236. Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 854,302 confirmed cases, 16,658 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 13,532 confirmed cases, 169 confirmed deaths, and 10,750 confirmed recoveries. Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 97,223 confirmed cases, 2,289 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Let’s look at one other state: Pennsylvania- currently, they have 175,804 confirmed cases, 8,421 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Tom Wolf. Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo is living there: 290,493 confirmed cases, 1,980 confirmed deaths, and 228,561 confirmed recoveries.
- 2020 Sunday E: A usual, no one knows what Beijing and their running dog flunkies in the Democratic Party up to today but everyone knows when DEMOCRATS accuse someone or something of doing something BAD, they are the ones guilty of doing it themselves. That’s how they roll so please, stick around to see whatever anti-Trump antics they are up to today…

Beverly Carrick: The World’s Greatest Artist (1927-2012)
ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
Electric Light Orchestra released their next studio album, “Zoom,” on June 12, 2001, and it was mostly a Jeff Lynne album as he performed most of the instruments on almost all of the tracks. He did, however, bring in guests like Richard Tandy, George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Marc Mann, and several others to add to the overall ambiance of the album as it flowed from one high to another. As with any band originating in the 1960s- early 1970s, only diehard fans sought it out but still, who cares about dimwits listening to Maroon Five, that slut-bag, Cardi B, and other reprobate losers and musical copycats, this album is a great addition to any growing collection of the best music as only the world-famous, anti-communist AICPENDBLOG.COM promotes. Please, seek it out and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.
