- 2006 Wednesday: Donald Rumsfeld resigns as U.S. Secretary of Defense.
- 2010 Monday: Shameless Nancy Pelosi plans to run for House Minority Leader. Why the Democrats would elect this person to anything is beyond any of us. Meanwhile, whack job Keith Olbermann is set to return to MSNBC following his recent suspension following the discovery that he had ‘donated money to Democrat politicians,’ something the network prohibits its employees from doing.
- 2011 Tuesday: Syrian army troops prepare to retake the nation’s third largest city, Homs, from the ISIS scumbags holding it and its population hostage. It is expected to be a long, bloody fight. Meanwhile, a woman accuses GOP presidential hopeful Herman Cain of ‘inappropriate touching.’ Many believe that Governor Mitt Romney, also vying for the nomination, is the unseen hand behind these allegations.
- 2012 Thursday: Sadly, it’s true, Barack Obama won a second term this past Tuesday and Elizabeth Warren, well-known Native American princess- managed to unseat Republican Senator Scott Brown in the race for the U.S. Senate. We were hoping the headlines might change but nope, what is, is. Likewise, Tammy Baldwin, Wisconsin, becomes the first openly gay homosexual serving in the U.S. Senate, too. The races appeared to be decided but some questions arose about irregularities.
- 2013 Friday: Palestinian investigators claim their former leader, Yasser Arafat, did not die of old age or ill health; they believe Israel killed him because his exhumed body contained elevated levels of the radioactive element polonium-210.
- 2014 Saturday: North Korea releases Americans Matthew Todd Miller and Kenneth Bae; Bae went to prison for two years after arrest for missionary actions, while Miller suffered detainment in April for ‘hostile acts’ after tearing up his visa and requesting asylum. The North Koreans released them into the hands of Barack Obama’s director of national intelligence, the devious James Clapper. Meanwhile, as tensions between the West and Russia continue to grow over the Russian rape of the Ukraine, final president of the now-defunct Soviet Union- Mikhail Gorbachev- says the ‘world is on the brink of a new Cold War.’
- 2015 Sunday: President Barack Obama announces to wild applause from climate change activists that he will reject the Keystone XL pipeline that would bring Canadian oil to the Gulf Coast. As if playing on Obama’s words, the World Bank announces that climate change could drive 100 million of the world’s inhabitants into poverty. Say it ain’t so.
- 2016 Tuesday: By the end of the night on Election Night, Donald Trump held a 254-215 advantage in the Electoral College casting Hillary Clinton’s presidential aspiration in doubt. Hillary Clinton’s supporters are thrown into shock and grief as the numbers continue coming out that show their girl went down in smoldering defeat. Add to that the fact that the GOP maintains majorities in the House and Senate which drives the Dems into a frenzy of protests.
- 2017 Wednesday: Five women accuse comedian Louis C.K. of sexual assault. He is yet another victim of #MeToo. Meanwhile, following last week’s assault, Senator Rand Paul’s doctors upgrade his status to six fractured ribs and both lungs bruised. His attacker pleads NOT GUILTY to charges of 4th Degree Assault.
- 2018 Thursday: Tens of thousands of people fled a fast-moving wildfire in Northern California that would become the state’s deadliest ever, killing 86 people; authorities said the community of Paradise had been nearly destroyed by the flames. Meanwhile, a federal judge in Montana nixes the Keystone XL Pipeline yet again. Meanwhile, with the firing of Attorney-General Jeff Sessions, Democrats in the House- and their shock troops in the streets- demand protection of Robert S. Mueller’s ‘probe’ into ‘Trump-Russia Collusion,’ the now debunked scam and sham investigation. The Dems want to protect the senile former FBI boss who put many people into prison who did not deserve to be there. Finally, President Trump says he will end all asylum claims by illegal aliens who cross the border without going through ports of entry. Good. Build the wall and deport them all…
- 2019 Friday: As Democrats continue snapping about his heels, President Donald J. Trump says he will ‘probably release the full transcript of his phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, most likely next Tuesday.’ Meanwhile, House Republicans send a list of witnesses they would like to testify to Adam Schiff, Jerrold Nadler, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, all Democrats. They would be denied.
- 2020 Sunday: Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-SC, says that the committee will probe numerous allegations of voter fraud marring the 2020 Presidential Election. Speaking of election fraud, the totally in-the-tank-for-the-Democrats Facebook removes the account of a pro-Trump group, Boots on the Ground to Protect the Integrity of the Election, a group with 350,000 followers- advocating to stop the theft of the presidential election. Facebook, if Trump and the Republicans come out on top, we hope they use anti-trust actions to break you up. NO one gave you the right to stifle free speech and Mark Zuckerberg is little more than a candy-assed pansy. Meanwhile, voters in Georgia are getting suspicious phone calls asking if they voted and for whom- authorities believe this to be yet another scheme with which to steal the election. Finally, the leftist dimwit Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Baby Evita, aka AOC, birth name Sandy Cortez, blasts the failed Lincoln Project for not converting enough conservative voters to rabid Democrats. All considered, BOTH AOC and her (terrorist) squad and the Lincoln Project are a bunch of losers.
- 2020 Sunday A: In Democrat-controlled battleground states like Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, as well as Georgia, Trump supporters are in the streets demanding justice in the election. It is one thing to lose and quite another to lose because the Democrats have stolen it. Interesting note: Joe Biden has more votes for president in these states than did Democrat senatorial candidates so it’s clear that electoral shenanigans have been going on as the Dems were unable to steal Senate seats. What’s more, are we to believe that in Pennsylvania that citizens of that state voted for “Pro-China Joe” Biden so their jobs in fracking, natural gas production, and every industry and job connected to fossil fuel production would vanish like they did in 2009? We think not.
- 2020 Sunday B: Sadly, Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek is dead at 80 from pancreatic carcinoma. Moving on, Marxist former Bolivian president Evo Morales is set to return home after being banished. In the Ivory Coast, the government took to the streets to arrest members of the opposition party for treason, corruption, and for being members of the opposition party, something that ditz b***h AOC would like to do in the United States. Remember: there are more of us than there are of them.
- 2020 Sunday C: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Yellow Bat Flu- the -so-called Pelosi Pox the aka ‘Go to Chinatown and hug a Chinaman’ (a moronic act of virtue-signaling) disease: Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 50,111,147 confirmed cases, +422,796, 1,253,707, confirmed deaths, +5,557, and 32,892,365 confirmed recoveries, +258,624. Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 10,066,916 confirmed cases, up 147,063 from yesterday’s reporting, 241,186 confirmed deaths, UP 875, and 5,740,386 confirmed recoveries, UP 27,153. 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: 975,535 confirmed cases, 17,970 confirmed deaths (number readjusted DOWN from last week), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 15,939 confirmed cases, 220 confirmed deaths, and 12,083 confirmed recoveries. Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 121,220 confirmed cases, 2,552 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Let’s look at one other state: New Jersey- currently, they have 256,395 confirmed cases, 16,429 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries- why don’t you report the statistics? Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo is living there: 319,241 confirmed cases, 2,674 confirmed deaths, and 308,563 confirmed recoveries.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
On September 11, 1979, Foreigner came back with another powerful album, “Head Games.” On lead vocals was Lou Gramm, Mick Jones (guitars), Ian McDonald (keyboards/guitars/vocals/producer), Al Greenwood (keyboards), Dennis Elliott (drums/percussion), and veteran bassist Rick Wills. The band had a knack for delivering radio hits and this album was no exception what with “Dirty White Boy,” “Love on the Telephone,” and the title track. At the time, there were very few groups that sounded like this one and they were as powerful and as potent as the soon-to-be-gone Led Zeppelin with the death of John Bonham. We hope you will seek this album out by visiting whatever your favorite site for rock music is because this one is a classic.

TODAY IN HISTORY, SUNDAY NOVEMBER 08, 2020
PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.
Sunday, November 08, 2020:
[i] General McClellan, aka “Little Mac” to his troops was among the numerous federal generals that President Lincoln had to terminate because they were horrible commanders. “Little Mac” put the lives of his troops above everything which is why they so revered him but when it came to showing fighting spunk, he failed to attack time and again which might have ended the war far sooner.
[ii] The Atlanta Rhythm Section is another awesome American band, one we sure as heck hope to promote when and if we return to doing music again.
[iii] We began promoting the music of the famed California surf-rock band, the Turtles, beginning on Tuesday, 03-September-2013 through Friday, 13-September-2013.
