  46. 2002 Friday: Two weeks after launching a political firestorm due to some insensitive remarks, Senate Republican Leader Trent Lott resigned his seat.  If Democrats say insensitive things, seldom does anyone require them to leave but Republicans always jump ship.  Meanwhile, the nation’s 10 biggest brokerage firms agreed to pay $1.44 billion and fundamentally to change the way they do business to settle allegations that they had mislead investors by hyping certain companies flawed stocks.  Elsewhere, Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski enters the U.S. Senate on this date.
  47. 2004 Monday: In a sobering assessment of the Iraq War, President George W.

  50. 2007 Thursday: The U.S. House Intelligence Committee subpoenas the former head of the CIA’s National Clandestine Service Jose Rodriguez to bust his balls over the destruction of CIA interrogation tapes of jihadist thugs and murderers in CIA custody.  Ah, well, you can’t get everything you want.  Meanwhile, the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam, strikes again as a suicide attack targeting a Pakistani government official kills at least 50 people and wounds loads of others.  Elsewhere, four Palestinians get themselves killed as they attempt to attack Israel along its border with the Gaza Strip.  
  51. 2008 Saturday: Reuters reports that three submarine cables mysteriously break that disrupt telephone and internet communications between the Middle East and Asia.

  53. 2010 Monday: The Obama administration seeks the ability to launch raids into Pakistan deeper than they have before.  We thought President Obama was opposed to widening wars or starting new ones.  My, my, my!  Meanwhile, there is a reason for this: a report says that over the course of 2010, 700 foreign troops have lost their lives in Afghanistan to foes who hide across the border in- you guessed it- Pakistan.
  54. 2011 Tuesday: In Egypt, thousands of women protest the Cairo police for having beaten numerous female protesters in Tahir Square in Cairo.  The top U.S. Army general in Iraq- Lloyd Austin- returns from the devastated country.   Meanwhile, the U.S. military rests its case in the courts martial of Private Bradley Manning, the young soldier who handed reams of classified intel over to Julian Assange and WikiLeaks.
  55. 2012 Thursday: People across the United States are supposed to undergo a moment of silence in remembrance of the victims of the Sandy Hook Massacre.   Meanwhile, Vice President Joe Biden and members of the Cabinet and law enforcement officials from across the country met to discuss what could be done about the out-of-control gun violence across the country.  As it would turn out, NOTHING.
  56. 2013 Friday: For the first time since 1927, the Bakersfield High School Drillers football team won the state championship by beating Loomis-Del Oro Golden Eagles in the CIF Division I State Bowl Championship in Carson City, California.  The final score was 56-26.
  57. 2014 Saturday: Peshmerga forces in Iraq push ISIS forces off part of Sinjar Mountain, liberating 1,500 or so Yazidi families who had fled there after the terrorist army drove them from their villages in the valley below the mountain.  Meanwhile, the Obama administration sends four Afghan POWs back to their home country after having held them for more than a decade at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in the camp there.
  58. 2015 Sunday: At the recent Democratic Presidential Primary Debate, Senator Bernie Sanders and former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton go to town on one another over the role of the U.S. military in the world.  Hillary a hawk and Bernie a Chi-Com-loving dove have different views.  Former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley was there, too, but no one gave a s**t.
  59. 2016 Tuesday: Outgoing President Barack Hussein Obama bans oil drilling in both the Arctic and along the Eastern Seaboard.  Meanwhile, the World Meteorological Association says that 2016 is going to be the hottest year on record driving young climate change activists to run amok in the streets, believing the planet is going to die.  Four years later, it’s still here and doing better, no thanks to the Chi-Com Bat Flu of 2020.   Elsewhere, the Trump transition team continues requesting information from the U.S. State Department regarding its donations to environmental groups.
  60. 2017 Wednesday: Democracy Now (and other liberal groups) are wailing that the Republican-controlled Congress passes a massive tax overhaul group that is going to benefit the nation’s richest Americans and corporations.  Again, the ‘richest Americans and corporations’ provide the most jobs.  Meanwhile, as rent-a-mobs protest in the streets, the very same congress passes a budget bill that won’t provide additional aid to DREAMERS.  Oh, boohoo.   
  61. 2018 Thursday: After ‘disagreements’ with President Donald J. Trump on military strategy- namely, keeping troops in West Africa, East Africa, Afghanistan, and Syria- U.S. Secretary of Defense James “Mad Dog” Mattis announces his resignation effective at the end of the year.  The president would send him packing sooner…
  62. 2019 Friday: Awaiting the House Democrats to walk the impeachment papers over to the U.S. Senate, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his fellow GOP senators plot the upcoming impeachment strategy.  Unable to really generate honest articles of impeachment against President Trump, the Democrats have cobbled together two laughable articles of impeachment which over the course of time would become known to everyone.  The Democrats in the Senate would DEMAND WITNESSES.  Folks, the Senate hears from NO witnesses as the Senate members are the jury and the party doing the impeachment presents its case, win, or lose.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump establishes the U.S. Space Force on this date to counter Chi-Com, Russian, and Iranian threats in the war domain of outer space.  
  63. 2020 Sunday: Here are today’s NFL matchups: (4) Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 31 (9-5) @ Atlanta Falcons, 27 (4-10) Sunday 10:00 A.M.  (5)  San Francisco 49ers, 33 (5-9) @ Dallas Cowboys, 41 (5-9) 10:00 A.M.  (6) Detroit Lions, 25 (5-9) @ Tennessee Titans, 46 (10-4) 10:00 A.M.  (7) Houston Texans, 20 (4-10) @ Indianapolis Colts, 27 (10-4) 10:00 A.M.  (8) New England Patriots, 12 (6-8) @ Miami Dolphins, 22 (9-5) 10:00 A.M.  (9) Chicago Bears, 33 (7-7) @ Minnesota Vikings, 27 (6-8) 10:00 A.M.

  64. 2020 Sunday A: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Yellow Bat Flu- the -disease the Chi-Coms manufactured in their Wuhan biowarfare lab and their allies, the Democratic Party- used to throw the election to “Pro-China Joe” Biden, aka “Chi-Com Joe”:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 76,760,893 confirmed cases, +634,728, 1,692,151, confirmed deaths, +8,617, and 43,244,094 confirmed recoveries, +280,463 (last week, the number was much higher so some funny business is going on here, folks).  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 17,975,428 confirmed cases, up 346,135 from yesterday’s reporting, 320,595 confirmed deaths, UP 3,061, and 7,925,626 confirmed recoveries, UP 67,965.
  65. 2020 Sunday B: 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: 1,869,125 confirmed cases, 22,653 confirmed deaths (number readjusted DOWN from last week), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 20,257 confirmed cases, 282 confirmed deaths, and no longer any mention of confirmed recoveries at this point.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 226,551 confirmed cases, 3,169 confirmed deaths (down from a week ago), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Georgia- currently, they have 562,479 confirmed cases, 10,383 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo is living there: 374,760 confirmed cases, 3,099 confirmed deaths, and 348,106 confirmed recoveries.   Speaking of Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu received his Bat Flu vaccine today on live TV.  Elsewhere, although the world is contending with the Wuhan bat flu, economist Stephen Moore says ‘2021 should be very bright thanks to the Chi-Vi vaccine.’ Meanwhile, U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams says the country ‘should be normal by later spring or early summer.’  Finally, the Moderna vaccine is out on the road in the U.S. and people could be receiving their vaccinations tomorrow.  
  66. 2020 Sunday C:  President Donald J. Trump refutes Fake News claims that he is going to seize government and declare martial law.  We know this cannot happen because the military already said, ‘they aren’t going to get involved in the election.’   Meanwhile, the president continues trying to push a stimulus bill for the American people as lawmakers continue haggling with one another over a COVID-19, aka Kung Flu, relief bill that neither Democrats nor Republicans seemingly can pass.  We begin voting them out in 2022, 2024, 2026 and on and on and on.  Meanwhile, outgoing Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard- a leader of the people- is pushing for COVID-19 relief for small businesses.  Will anyone listen?
  67. 2020 Sunday D: The Save America Bus Tour with Senator Ted Cruz at the helm pulls into Cumming, Georgia, today.  Yesterday, it was in Savannah, as the battle to keep the U.S. Senate from the communist Democrats continues.  Meanwhile, as we continue learning more dirt on that scumbag, Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell and his ties to the Chi-Coms via to sleeping with an MSS agent for several years, information is beginning to come to light on another Democrat Congressman Adam Schiff.  A driving force in the fake impeachment of President Trump and his phone call with Volodymyr Zelensky, Ukraine’s president, we now learn that Schiff has deep ties to Burisma, the Ukrainian natural gas company.  Boris Pasternak of Burisma held fundraisers for Congressman Schiff as well as funneled money from George Soros’ left-wing ‘think tanks,’ Atlantic Council being one.  He also received cash from Blackrock and Franklin-Templeton Investments.  What a scumbag.
  68. 2020 Sunday E: The ‘religion of peace’ strikes again in Kabul, Afghanistan, as two car bombings kill nine people and wound another 20 citizens.  One must love Islam.  Meanwhile, U.S. troops are leaving Somalia for neighboring countries.  Elsewhere, the U.S. emplaces sanctions on Chi-Com companies involved in the phony elections in Venezuela.  Finally, in Great Britain, Prime Minister Boris Johnson is using the communist Chinese virus to cancel Christmas and more or less declares a severe lockdown of the British people all in the name of protecting people from the Wuhan Bat Flu.  Boris has gone crazy. 
  69. 2020 Sunday F: “Tiger King” Joe Exotic is seeking a pardon from President Trump.  Former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin, R, is urging a pardon for Julian Assange as are many for Edward Snowden.  Meanwhile, President Trump tweets that ‘John Bolton is the stupidest man alive.’  Many of us used to believe Mr. Bolton was a good man; we now know he is little more than a worthless POS who embodies the Military-Industrial Complex and endless, endless war…
  70. 2020 Sunday G: Even though it’s Sunday, the Chi-Coms and their allies in Canada, Iran, Russia, Venezuela, Cuba, North Korea, and in the Democratic Party here in the U.S. are up to no good.  Stick around to discover exactly what they are doing…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The J. Geils Band would deliver its finest album on October 26, 1981, “Freeze-Frame.”  Folks, in the era of MTV, this album and the band was made for Music TV.  This would be the last album to feature the original lineup- John “J.” Geils (guitars), Peter Wolf (vocals), Seth Justman (keyboards/vocals), Danny Klein (bass/vocals), Stephen Jo Bladd (drums), and “Magic Dick” (harmonicas/saxophones)- because their success was so great, it would cause Peter Wolf to become full of himself and depart.  Ah, well, it was a heartbreaker at the time but NO reason not to look for this album as it contains the amazing title track, “Centerfold,” “Angel in Blue,” and “Flamethrower,” all of which kept this album Number One for at least a month and those songs on the radio for decades to come.  We hope everyone will seek this album out and add it to your collection- you will be so glad you did- of that, we guarantee!

TODAY IN HISTORY, SUNDAY DECEMBER 20, 2020

PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.

Sunday, December 20, 2020:

FOOTNOTES:


[i] We hope to advertise this book for historical purposes on this date. 

[ii] We promoted the music of the Association beginning on Wednesday, 25-September-2013 through Monday, 07-October-2013.  These guys were amazing, we hope you will check them out and consider adding them to your growing collection of albums and CDs. 

[iii] We look forward to sharing the music of KISS sometime in the next 10-15 years.  We hope you will still be with us when we do because YOU won’t want to miss them. 

[iv] We expect to do the music of Jethro Tull, Wild Turkey, Ian Anderson, and Paris sometime in the next 5-6 years.  We hope you will still be with us.

[v] We promoted the music of the James Gang beginning on Saturday, 11-August-2012 through Monday, 27-August-2012.  We did not do the solo discography of Joe Walsh at the time but when we arrive at the Eagles, we most certainly will.

[vi] We hope to share the music of the Eagles, Joe Walsh, Don Henley, Glenn Fray, and others, including Poco, sometime in the next decade.  Please remain with us.

[vii] This is typical of liberal leftwing judges as communists do not believe in God and always go after any mention of God or His ‘intelligent design,’ because communists do not want humankind to believe in anything greater than human beings.  We say, “BULLSHIT” to this, shame on the judge.  If leftists did not fear God as much as they do, they would remain silent.  You never see leftist judges go after Muslims.

[viii] We promoted the music of Big Brother and the Holding Company, beginning on Monday, 18-July-2011 through Tuesday, 26-July-2011.  At the time, we were not farsighted enough to offer the music of Janis Joplin but hope to do so at some point in the near future when we return to promoting the music of American rock bands.

Author: Executive and Pastry Chef Tiresias

Longtime professional chef, born in Greece, emigrated to the United States in the late 1940s where my parents opened a Greek restaurant on the East Coast and then in Southern California. My siblings and I took over the restaurants from our parents in 1999 and haven't looked back since. I have been a longtime author at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day and now am a chef-blogger here at our WordPress site.
