  50. 2017 Monday: The fallout from the opening phases of the Trump-Russia collusion scam begins as President Donald J. Trump accepts the resignation of his National Security Adviser Gen. Michael Flynn, over his ‘reported dealings with Russia.’  Thank you, FBI Director James Comey, thank you, Hillary Clinton, thank you, Barack Hussein Obama, James Clapper, John Brennan, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, and all the rest of the conspiratorial scum.  Meanwhile in Orange County, California, actor Harrison Ford crashes into a field.  Many suspect he was smoking the wild wood weed.
  51. 2018 Tuesday: In Israel, Israeli cops recommend the prosecution of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on allegations of bribery, fraud, and breach-of-trust bull crap.   Now, here’s something you normally don’t hear about- a United Airlines Flight 1175- flying from San Francisco, California, to Honolulu, Hawaii, upon coming into Oahu airspace requests and is given emergency landing following an engine cowling coming off during flight.  Yikes.  Meanwhile, Moscow demands YouTube and Instagram to remove videos of Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny.
  52. 2019 Wednesday: Iran marks the 40th anniversary of their fascist Islamist republic by driving its citizens to participate in massive street marches while calling for the death of America and the death of Israel.  Who doesn’t love a good old Islamo-fascist street fest?   Elsewhere, Venezuelan interim President Juan Guaidó announces that he is working to restore the ties of his nation with Israel, ties that were severed by anti-Semitic thug dictator Hugo Chavez. 
  53. 2020 Thursday:  The Israeli Air Force launches a strike on Iranian targets in the Syrian capital of Damascus.  The Syrian government claims to have intercepted the Israeli missiles but folks, if the Israelis set out to get someone or something, they get it or them.  It is what it is.  Meanwhile, the Chinese Virus, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, aka the Wuhan Flu, is running amok in communist China what with the reporting of 15,152 new cases of the coronavirus 254 deaths.  Elsewhere, Tokyo reports its first fatality related to this rapidly growing pandemic.  Finally, the government of Venezuela announces that it’s going to take the U.S. to the International Criminal Court on charges of ‘crimes against humanity.’
  54. 2021 Saturday: FIRST- the second impeachment trial of President Donald J. Trump ends with a vote of 57-43, 10 votes shy of the number required to convict.  Seven scurrilous Republicans joined their ‘fellow’ Democrats to convict.  Richard Burr and Pat Toomey who are retiring as well as the typical RINOs- Mitt Romney, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Ben Sasse, and now Bill Cassidy.  As for “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, at first we heard he was going to vote to convict and then the AP said he wouldn’t.  We guess he licked his finger, held it up in the air, felt the direction public opinion was going, and elected NOT to vote to convict his wife’s former boss.  It’s over but is it ever over?  We expect to see the Dems via federal prosecutors sometime in late 2023-early 2024 file federal charges in court accusing the former president of these very same crimes, rather like what that putz Jimmy Comey did to Hillary Clinton by first clearing her of mishandling classified info, dirtying her up again, and then clearing a second time a couple of days out from the 2016 Presidential Election.   For the Dems to pull this off, they may have to keep Antifa members who participated in the January 6 riots so they can use them to testify against Trump, sort of like how they kept members of the Trump campaign locked up, you know, trying to ‘sweat them.’
  55. 2021 Saturday A: Earlier in the day, the Democrat House managers held a vote to call witnesses and by a margin of 55-45, it passed.  However, after some whispered speaking, they decided to include one little tidbit of ‘witness testimony’ from Jaime Herrera-Beutler in which, hearsay from a conference call between Kevin McCarthy and President Trump was admitted.  Both sides agreed to its inclusion but then nothing more on witnesses because Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, said that would open the door to House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, Mayor Muriel Bowser, and to others who have control over securing the Capitol Building and the District of Columbia.  We would have loved to have seen Speaker Pelosi answer questions as to WHY, if she believe the capitol was in imminent danger, why she and Mayor Bowser did not take President Trump on his offer of 10,000 National Guardsmen.  Meanwhile, there was some speculation earlier today as to whether a SECRET impeachment vote could have occurred in the spirit of Soviet Union’s show trials that would have sunk former President Trump.  It did not come to fruition. 
  56. 2021 Saturday B: Senator Cruz went on to say that he believes left-wing social media blew up last night demanding witnesses because it was clear the “C-Team” House managers were blowing it big time.  Senator Cruz said that if the Dems wanted witnesses, the GOP would call numerous witnesses so the House managers pulled back from this attempted ‘Hail Mary’ pass.  The senator also went onto say that he believes Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer is dealing with out-of-control chaos in that last night, EVERYONE agreed that witnesses were not required whereas this morning Jamie Raskin and his fellow Democrat hacks were demanding them.  Cruz concluded that IF the Dems wanted witnesses, this could drag the bogus impeachment proceedings out to late February or into March, derailing much of Joe Biden’s agenda.
  57. 2021 Saturday C: Regarding the impeachment trial, after the trial wrapped up yesterday, CNN attempted to come to the rescue of the floundering House managers by dropping a story of the ‘phone call between House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and President Trump in which, the president said that the January 06, 2021 Capitol Hill rioters were more impassioned over the 2020 Elections than McCarthy was.  This led to Ms. Herrera-Beutler and the Senator Mike Lee phone call, strange information the Democrats tried to inject into the proceedings and then wisely retreated from. 
  58. 2021 Saturday D: Former Acting Deputy Secretary of DHS- Ken Cuccinelli- was telling Newsmax that ‘the DHS is responsible for securing all federal buildings and monuments in Washington, D.C., with the exception of two: the U.S. Supreme Court and the U.S. Capitol, both of which have their own police forces.’  He went on to say that he ‘was shocked by the lack of preparedness on that day’ and pointed out that when help was offered to D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser, she rejected the offer, to stay away.  He pointed out that the National Guard is not a rapid deployment force, that it has to be pre-deployed and the armed for the mission at hand.  Technically, Nancy Pelosi does not have the authority to call the National Guard but could have told Mayor Bowser to do it which she would have then requested but none of this happened.  This is why so many are skeptical that the mob was spontaneous or that Trump called it into being.   
  59. 2021 Saturday E: Thane Rosenbaum told Newsmax that the Dems ‘blew the second impeachment’ by putting all their marbles in one basket, the charge of Donald J. Trump inciting insurrection against his own government..  He went on to say that ‘the president’s own words on January 6, 2021 cleared him of any and all charges of incitement.  Bill McGinley- former White House Cabinet secretary- says the Dems relied on newspaper stories which is bull crap.  He says they totally missed the mark whereas the defense team continually cited case law.  He also said that IF the Dems had gotten witnesses, they would have opened a Pandora’s box that would have destroyed them.  What they also didn’t want was the defense’s request that IF witnesses were to testify, they would have to do it in person.  Chef Lilah at the AICPENDBLOG.COM said it was all emotional and that listening to Manager Raskin’s attempts at sobbing made her sick.  
  60. 2021 Saturday F: Although no one in the Democratic Party ever expressed outrage at black men knocking out white people across the country, what they call “polar bear hunting,’ Vice President Kamala Harris is now speaking out against ‘rising waves of assaults on Asian Americans.’  We agree, it’s horrible and it must stop; however, why didn’t Kamala say something about all the attacks on white folks over the course of the past year?  Hypocrisy.   We also suspect that when the Oakland, California, attacker is apprehended, he will be a fellow Asian or other minority.  It always turns out like this…
  61. 2021 Saturday G: Oxford University says that it will test COVID-19 vaccine response among children for the first time as demands across the country for schools to reopen continue increasing.  Speaking of the Chi-Com virus, New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo whose policies killed far too many people in his state’s retirement and nursing homes now finds himself forced to duck inquiring reporters who want the TRUTH.   In other news about the Wuhan Virus, the Pentagon approves 20 additional teams to carry the vaccine to greater numbers of the American people.  Next, the White House DEMANDS answers from the Chi-Coms as to early data on the virus.  They stepped up these demands following the World Health Organization’s backtracking from their original clearing of the Wuhan Institute of Virology as the source of the disease.
  62. 2021 Saturday H: COVID-19 Daily Update:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 108,428,619 confirmed cases, +384,681, 2,389,860, confirmed deaths, +11,872, and 60,778,149 confirmed recoveries, +273,410.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 27,825,007 confirmed cases, up 109,859 from yesterday’s reporting, 488,152 confirmed deaths, UP 4,457, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- NO more updates on this number thanks to Joe Biden, going on for nearly as long as #46 has been in the White House.  Coincidence?  You be the judge.  NOTE- in the White House 25 DAYS, apparently the U.S. will NO longer report the number of recoveries.  Shame on you, Chi-Com Joe.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 158,757 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, talk is cheap, what are YOU going to do about it?  YOU are a worse murderer than Andrew “Killer” Cuomo is in the Empire State- he’s only killed 45,138 people.  
  63. 2021 Saturday I: 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: 3,469,853 confirmed cases, 46,435 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,460 confirmed cases, 425 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 330,427 confirmed cases, 4,739 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the country: Indiana.  Currently, they have 649,610 confirmed cases, 12,117 confirmed deaths, but NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 718,746 confirmed cases, 5,304 confirmed deaths, and 651,522 confirmed recoveries.  For the heck of it, let’s look at one other country: Turkey.  The former Ottoman Empire has 2.579,816 confirmed cases, 27,377 confirmed deaths, and 2,468,419 confirmed recoveries. 
  64. 2021 Saturday J: Stick around for tonight’s Super Lotto and Powerball results.  First, here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3534 with a $20 million jackpot on the line.   Here are the winning numbers: 18, 22, 38, 40, 42, and Mega 13.  Out of 127,647 winning tickets, the highest were THREE people who had FIVE numbers for a prize of $13,746.  The three winning tickets were sold at: (1) Papa Liquor in Corona Del Mar, CA 92625; (2) Chevron in Pittsburgh, CA 94565; and (3) Country Store, Fresno, CA 93727.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball, Draw #820 with a $56 million jackpot on the line: 20, 28, 33, 63, 68, and Powerball 20.  Out of 51,833 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $15,022.
  65. 2021 Saturday K: In the final news of the night, we learned that the worthless loser, “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell- always playing both sides of the aisle- condemns Donald J. Trump after NOT voting to convict.  He blasts him and blames him for all events that happened on January 06, 2021 before, during, and after the Capitol Hill Riots in which, Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs infiltrated Trump supporters and carried out one of the all-time great False Flag operations in the history of the United States.  Later, the earpiece in the ear of Joe Biden told Joe to say, ‘while the final vote did not lead to conviction, the substance of the charge is not in doubt.’  Who told you to mumble this Joe?  Barack Obama or Xi Jinping?  He was not finished there, however- here is what else he said: “Even those opposed to the conviction, like Senate Minority Leader McConnell believe Donald Trump was guilty of ‘dereliction of duty and practically and morally responsible for provoking the violence unleashed on the Capitol.”  There you go- the False Flag effort continues.   Speaking of Joe Biden, he signs yet another executive order banning the use of “Wuhan Virus” when referring to the Chi-Com Bat Flu.  We will try to remember that.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On October 10, 1989, the McAuley-Schenker Group returned with its sophomore effort, “Save Yourself.” Joining guitarist Michael Schenker and vocalist Robin McAuley were once again, Steve Mann (guitars/keyboards/backing vocals), Rocky Newton (bass/backing vocals), and Bodo Schopf (drums).  Say what you will about surviving rockers from the 1960s and 1970s in the Era of BIG HAIR in the 1980s, even if these guys succumbed to the ‘hair,’ they still cranked out top grade arena rock that made other practitioners of the art like Judas Priest, Poison, and Twisted Sister appear like the fecal matter they are and still are for those remaining today.  We hope you will seek this album out and consider adding it to your growing collection- you will be glad you did.

There should be NO conviction for #45 in the U.S. Senate so what are the Democrats and RINOs really up to? Let me explain to you their devious plan

Both Mr. Castor and Mr. Schoen alluded to the KEY in this SNAFU: IF the Democrats veritably thought that President Donald J. Trump incited mob violence and insurrection on January 6, 2021 and it was S-O-O-O important to do something about it, Number One (my view) they would have flown the article of impeachment over there by the 8th and second- in the lawyers’ view, a federal attorney would have brought charges against President Trump in a federal court. Period.

What is Donald Trump’s problem in picking competent attorneys?

Ventura, CA 93003, 02-13-2021 Saturday:   While I was watching the opening comments on Tuesday, you know, in the trial of the century– the show trial of the former 45th president- I was struck by how disappointing the defense attorneys were.  I mean, President Trump sure seems like he has issues choosing qualified legal representation what with a bum like Michael Cohen and the putzes we saw on Tuesday.  Bruce Castor, I have no clue what this man’s job was because he got up there and ambled around, stopping here, there, and everywhere as he seemingly schmoozed up with Democrats and RINOs alike on the jury.  Oh, if only Dr. Alan Dershowitz could have been there but he’s been through one impeachment trial already and it cost him almost all of his friends so it’s understandable as to why he would not seek to do an encore, even though he is the best defender of the rule of law and of the U.S. Constitution.  

The second attorney, David Schoen did a better job but neither one is what anyone would call a stellar court performer so it’s easy to see that once again, the 45th president is going to strike out because neither man did him justice.  I mean, if I were on trial for murder and these two men were my defenders, my head would be cupped in my hands, tears rolling down my cheeks because I would know I would be getting the chair in a state without the death penalty.  It is what it is.

I respect President Trump and he think he’s done amazingly well in business; however, it’s also easy to believe that he must have had far more luck in his climb up the ladder than competent legal advice because his lawyers never seem to do right by him.  Could this be a flaw within him that he picks people who are consistently not up to the job or could it be Divine Manipulation that sends him subpar lawyers.  That, too, is what it is…

I will say this, however: what I alluded to in my Today in History post this past Tuesday- I think the Democrats are once again playing a L-O-N-G game, one the Republicans and members of the Trump orbit fail to anticipate or visualize. 

This revelation just came to me and I was completely sober- well, mostly sober.  I was sitting there watching the farce and we know that Trump SHOULD NOT be convicted because of the numbers of Republicans among the jury it would require to do so- 17, I believe- but if President Trump’s legal representation does not improve, he very well could.  They would do it as a show of disapproval to his bozo lawyers (but let’s hope not).

Both Mr. Castor and Mr. Schoen alluded to the KEY in this SNAFU: IF the Democrats veritably thought that President Donald J. Trump incited mob violence and insurrection on January 6, 2021 and it was S-O-O-O important to do something about it, Number One (my view) they would have flown the article of impeachment over there by the 8th and second- in the lawyers’ view, a federal attorney would have brought charges against President Trump in a federal court.  Period.

Inciting insurrection against one’s own government is BAD and when one is president, it’s even worse, perhaps a HANGING OFFENSE.  Man, those charges would have been filed, Vice President Mike Pence would have brought the Cabinet together and employed the 25th Amendment to remove the criminal president so he could be taken into custody but none of that happened.  Not at all. 

Rather, Trump finished his term in office even though we were told daily what a clear and present danger he was for not only the country but the entire world.  Hell, the Iranians filed charges in the International Court to get Trump sent to their country for trial for having killed their golden boy, General Qassim Soleimani on New Year’s Day 2020.  At least those desert rats were on the ball while the Democrats sat around pulling a “Jeffrey Toobin” (I’d hate to be the one to clean that mess up!) in their nanosecond impeachment hearing (if you can call it such).

This is the plan: the Democrats expect Donald Trump will run again for the White House, starting as soon as the 2022 Mid-Term Elections are over.  He is a shoo-in to win the nomination because the Republicans brave enough to run against him are much-hated RINOs like Mitt Romney, Chris Christie, Marco Rubio, and any other mushy GOPPER who is drunk on his or her own image. 

Even Jeb Bush (we can always find another Bush, right?) or Nikki Haley could give it a go but none of them can or will win the nomination because the vast majority of the Republican Party HATES RINOs, even if it’s our only choice on Election Day.  We’ve been down that road before, we’ve been burned one too many times, and the RINOs always rest assured that we will pick the lesser of two evils.  No more.   

No, when Trump wins the nomination in mid-2024 and is on the way to victory, a week prior to the convention, the Biden Justice Department will conclude their years-long investigation into Trump and the ‘Trump Mob’ and will file a slew of federal charges against him then, accusing him of all manner of federal crimes.  Not only would this destroy him, it also might embarrass enough Republicans to throw their hands in the air and say, “ENOUGH!”  It would guarantee a Kamala Harris victory because we know that Usurper Joe is going to pull a “William Henry Harrison.” 

The question is, ‘what can we do?’ 

I will see you tomorrow.

The Jefferson Starship’s next CD, “Dragonfly,” came out on September 01, 1974 and saw Marty Balin back onboard as a ‘guest.’  This would change with the next release when he would return full-time and the song he would write would become one of the biggest hits of all time.  This album, however, saw the lineup solidify as Grace Slick (vocals), Paul Kantner (guitars, vocals), Pete Sears (bass guitar/keyboards/vocals), David Freiberg (bass guitar/keyboards/vocals/viola), Papa John Creech (violin/vocals), John Barbata (drums and percussion), and Craig Chaquico (lead guitar) came together. This would be among the most successful lineups of either the Airplane or Starship and having Marty Balin on board, the creator of the Jefferson Airplane was a great sign.  Please go to Amazon.com where you can snap this CD up in the format, the condition, and the price that is right for you and your pocketbook.
