- 2018 Friday: “Fire and Fury” by Michael Wolff, a book in which former aide Steve Bannon was quoted as expressing doubts about President Donald J. Trump’s competence hit book store shelves around the globe on this date. Trump had said on the eve of publication that the book was full of “lies, misrepresentations and sources that don’t exist.” Still the book sells somewhat moderately causing liberal commentators to claim it’s ‘selling like hotcakes.’ Elsewhere, astronaut John Young, who walked on the moon and later commanded the first space shuttle flight died at his Houston home at age 87.

- 2020 Sunday: Following the killing of Iranian POS General Qassim Soleimani in a drone strike, the Iraqi government votes to boot U.S. troops out of their country. This leads President Trump to threaten them with sanctions. Speaking of the drone strike that killed Soleimani, left-wing mobs in the U.S. take to the streets screaming, “NO WAR WITH IRAN!” Pansies. Meanwhile, U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren, D-Massachusetts, says ‘that Trump is trying to go to war with Iran to distract from impeachment.’
- 2020 Sunday A: Elsewhere, in the early NFC Wildcard Game, the Minnesota Vikings stun the New Orleans Saints- the home team- by a score of 26-20.

Eagles QB Carson Wentz was knocked out of the game early with a head injury and back up QB Josh McGowan kept them in the game.
- 2021 Tuesday: Wal-Mart announces that it will establish more clinics in its stores across the United States. Elsewhere, Congressmen Devin Nunes and Jim Jordan, both conservative Republicans, receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Donald J. Trump. Meanwhile, founder of the Proud Boys- Enrique Tarrio- is arrested in Washington, D.C. for burning a Black Lives Matter? WTF? Once again, fascist Mayor Muriel Bowser could care little to nothing that BLM and Antifa trash burn down all manner of things from buildings to businesses or that they beat people senseless in the streets but a Latino guy burns a BLM banner and goes to jail? When the bodies start dropping, liberal Democratic-Socialists are going to have only themselves to blame. Speaking of human garbage, Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, says Antifa trash showed up outside his D.C. home trying to intimidate him by terrorizing his family. Mayor Bowser: where were the cops?
- 2021 Tuesday A: The public absence of Jack Ma fuels speculations that the Chi-Coms are in the midst of a crackdown and repression of its citizens. Shame on them. Meanwhile, Representative Lauren Boebert, R-CO, fights to keep her handgun in Washington, D.C. which as she says is ‘her Constitutional right.’ Elsewhere- in a humorous note- the ayatollahs in Iran are seeking the arrest of President Donald J. Trump for having whacked POS Quds Force, aka terrorist leader, Qassim Soleimani a year ago on New Year’s Day. We still say, “NUKE THEM!” Speaking of President Trump, the White House is downplaying the report that the day before Inauguration Day- should he lose- he might jet over to his property in Scotland. Hell, these stupid Democrat f**ks might try to arrest him and hand him over to the Iranians. Speaking of the Iranians, they are back (they’ve always been) to enriching uranium at 20-percent. Again, we say, “NUKE THEM! NOW! Like we should have nuked the Chi-Coms in 1950.”
- 2021 Tuesday B: The police say that the Milwaukee pharmacist who left more than 550 doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine out at room temperature last week did so because he was some kind of ‘conspiracy theorist.’ Okay. Meanwhile, “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s pick to head the U.S. Treasury- the honorable Janet Yellen, has raked in millions of dollars giving speeches to BIG BANKS. Elsewhere, federal Judge Katherine Polk Failla in Manhattan blocked the Trump administration from targeting lawyers working for the human rights and war crimes commissions at the Hague. Leftist lawyers are always trying to send America’s fighting-men-and-women to prison for doing their duty.
- 2021 Tuesday C: A Fox 5/Insider Advantage poll now says the two Georgia U.S. Senate run-off races are tied neck and neck. Yesterday, both Democrats- bigot Reverend Raphael Warnock and Sinophile Jon Ossoff- had four-point leads over their opponents, Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue. We hear turnout is light although early voting was off the charts. Elsewhere, we hear that relief checks for the dreaded Chi-Vi, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, aka the Chinese Virus, aka the Kung Flu, aka Yellow Fever 2020, among other names- are going to the wrong addresses. Sounds like mail-in ballots?
- 2021 Tuesday D: Hundreds of thousands of Trump supporters are arriving in Washington, D.C., which has corrupt Mayor Muriel Bowser quaking in her booties. She has called for help from the National Guard and is urging locals not to get involved with the rioting she suspects will break out when her Antifa and BLM thugs arrive on scene. Looks like a reckoning is coming. Question: will the stooges of the Chi-Coms- Antifa and BLM- prevail or will the American people destroy this fetid human filth and their rat-eating masters in Beijing? That is the question of the day, folks.
- 2021 Tuesday E: The Kenosha, Wisconsin, police officer who shot POS thug Jacob Blake seven times as Blake attempted to enter his vehicle to retrieve a knife will not face any charges for his actions. Excellent. Elsewhere, former U.S. Secretary of State and failed presidential candidate (and noted ‘foreign policy expert’) Hillary Rodham Clinton says, ‘President Trump is playing a dangerous game with Iran.’
- 2021 Tuesday F: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox: Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 86,195,556 confirmed cases, +640,281, 1,863,653, confirmed deaths, +13,749, and 48,409,904 confirmed recoveries, +351,879.

- 2021 Tuesday G: 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: 2,488,839 confirmed cases, 27,038 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 22,168 confirmed cases, 289 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 261,493 confirmed cases, 3,558 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Let us look at one other state: Oklahoma: currently, they have 308,268 confirmed cases, 2,571 confirmed deaths, and 271,693 confirmed recoveries. Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 451,044 confirmed cases, 3,448 confirmed deaths, and 391,373 confirmed recoveries.
- 2020 Tuesday H: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,391.60, UP 167.71 points (+0.55%). Next, the NASDAQ: 12,818.96, UP 120.51 points (+0.95%). Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,726.86, UP 26.21 points (+0.71%).

The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $49.87 per barrel, -0.06 (-0.12%). Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan. Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.81 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.88.
- 2021 Tuesday I: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1622 with a jackpot of $447 million: 20, 43, 51, 55, 57, and Mega 04. The highest winner was one person who had FIVE numbers but NOT the Mega for a prize of $2,390,663. The winning ticket was sold at a Chevron in Brentwood, CA 94513.
- 2021 Tuesday J: Folks, it now appears that known wife-beater and child abuser, disciple of Karl Marx, a member of the Pro-Death Movement Reverend Raphael Warnock is going to emerge the winner of the first Georgia U.S. Senate race. It would appear that Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler is going to suffer defeat. The Chi-Coms are the big winners here. Next, although the race between Little Jon Ossoff, Sinophile and recipient of Chi-Com cash and sitting Republican Senator David Perdue is ‘close,’ we will say that by tomorrow morning, Ossoff will become a U.S. senator as well. Scratch another one for the Chi-Coms and for their lackey in Georgia, the ever-angry Stacey Abrams.
- 2021 Tuesday K: Saudi Arabia and Qatar sign a U.S.-backed agreement to bring peace between the Arab Persian Gulf States. President Donald J. Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner brokered the long-sought deal. Only President Trump could have accomplished peace in the Middle East.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
If a band sticks around long enough, their record companies begin making larger compilations with which to repackage the older music and present it to both the longtime fans and to new listeners. “The Original Album Series, Volume 1,” contained FIVE classic albums- “The J. Geils Band” (11-16-1970), “The Morning After” (10-02-1971), “Live Full House” (09-26-1972), “Bloodshot,” (04-12-1973), and “Ladies Invited,” (11-09-1973).

Please, seek this album out wherever you can find it- you will be glad you did.
