Finally, 83 people die and 250 suffer injuries in a series of bombings across the Syrian city of Damascus.
- 2014 Friday: According to Brainy History, G-20 nations discuss ending stimulus efforts in economically advanced nations while planning ways to increase global trade and employment opportunities to achieve global GDP growth.
- 2015 Saturday: Also, according to Brainy History, Turkey sends troops to Syria to rescue 40 guards and relocate remains from the tomb of Suleiman Shah, which ISIS militants now surround; the international community recognizes the site as Turkish territory.
- 2016 Sunday: ISIS, a member of the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ carries out suicide bombings in Homs and Damascus, killing at least 140 people. Next, airstrikes in Libya by U.S. warplanes on terrorist targets kill two Serbian hostages. Elsewhere, a Michigan Uber driver is accused of murdering six people in a shooting.
- 2017 Tuesday: Along the coastline of Zawiya, Libya, the bodies of 87 African migrants wash ashore. They were the lucky ones as ISIS was selling other Sub-Saharan Africans as slaves in various marketplaces. Meanwhile, to the shock of Democrats and leftists, President Donald J. Trump authorizes the Department of Homeland Security to commence rounding up and deporting illegal aliens wherever they uncover them, rather like the Operation Wetback of the late 1940s and early to mid-1950s. A government’s first obligation is to ITS people, not illegal aliens.
- 2018 Wednesday: Famed televangelist Billy Graham, a man who provided counseling and support to every president from Harry S. Truman to George W. Bush, passed away in his sleep at age 99. Elsewhere, following the now infamous St. Valentine’s Day Massacre 2018 in Tallahassee, Florida, gun control advocates, parents, teachers, students, and everyone else is demanding something be done to stop this stuff. The shooter should never have been in school but Obama era policies prevented educators from booting sickos and the police from behaving proactively rather reactively. It is a horrible thing. Meanwhile, students across the country stage walkouts in protest of such gun violence.
- 2019 Thursday: Multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Peter Tork, member of the Monkees[ix], passed away at age 77 on this date. Meanwhile, a federal judge rules against U.S. Secretary of Labor Alex Acosta, accusing of him of having ‘broken the law’ back in 2008 when serial sexual abuser Jeffrey Epstein- good friend of Bill and Hillary Clinton, among others- when Acosta was the prosecutor in a sex case in which the wealthy business mogul was involved. They gave the guy a sweetheart plea deal apparently. You convict on what you can convict. Epstein has been accused of mistreating numerous girls.
- 2020 Friday: On Fox News Channel, Democratic candidate Tom “Green Jeans” Steyer swears on the Bill Hemmer program that he ‘will be on the upcoming Tuesday night debate stage.’ He also promises that he is the only one who can defeat President Trump in November which is delusional. His fellow Democrats want him and his best bud, “Tiny Mikey” Bloomberg as much as they want anal herpes. We expect him either to drop out soon or go third party and contest for the Green Party (or Peace and Freedom Party) nomination. Meanwhile, the Democrats are claiming that ‘Russia is going to help Trump steal the 2020 Election.’ Here we go again. Question for Democrats: IF you so fear foreign involvement in U.S. presidential elections then why the f**k are you not demanding for ALL illegal aliens to be rounded up and deported immediately? Finally, it looks like the jurors in the Harvey Weinstein multiple rape trial are going to find the POS guilty. Elections have consequences, folks. Had Hillary Rodham Clinton won in 2016, Harvey would still be raping young starlets.
- 2021 Sunday: Day 33 of the usurper Joe Biden Regime- will it ever end? First, ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden says he has ‘no plans to invite Russia to upcoming G 7 talks; we bet he would invite the Chi-Coms if the other world powers would allow him. Next, Joe Biden is considering Rahm “Dead Fish” Emanuel, former mayor of Chicago to be his ambassador to Japan. However, outrage over this pathetic POS is growing on both sides of the aisle. Still, we bet he gets the job. In other ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden news, noted author and China expert Gordon Chang says, ‘the Chi-Coms have no respect for their stooge in the White House.’ We agree.
- 2021 Sunday A: In other Chi-Com news, former NSA official Matthew Pottinger says there’s ‘plenty of evidence linking the Xi Jinping Bat Flu to both the Chi-Com military and to lax standards in the Wuhan Institute of Virology,’ which in our eyes, created the perfect storm of events to get Trump out of the White House. Finally, the ‘Biden White House’ is talking to the Iranians, seeking to get detained Americans returned home. (Probably going to require $1.5 billion in cash on pallets in the middle of the night, there, Joe, just like what you and Barack Obama did).
- 2021 Sunday B: New Mexico Democrat Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham finds herself in trouble, accused of using more $13,000 of the taxpayers’ money to buy groceries, alcohol, and on dry-cleaning bills. Remove her from office. Elsewhere, former White House adviser under President Donald J. Trump and immigration czar in the Trump administration- Stephen Miller- says, ‘Joe Biden’s immigration policy is madness.’ Speaking of this madness, RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel says, ‘Joe Biden is responsible for creating the crisis along the southern border.’ As if that’s not bad enough, Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security is dumping 25 illegal aliens per day into the San Diego, California, area as well into southern Texas in what appears to be a targeted dumping of unwanted illegal aliens who should be thrown back as soon as they are caught crossing the border. And you don’t think the REPLACEMENT THEORY does not exist, that it’s another so-called ‘conspiracy theory.’ Bull crap. Everything the liberals are doing and which people recognize they’re doing, the scream “CONSPIRACY THEORY!”
- 2021 Sunday C: It’s official- President Donald J. Trump will be speaking at CPAC in Florida next week, his first speaking engagement since having the 2020 Presidential Election stolen from him (that’s right, I said it!). Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, R-GA, says, ‘there’s no denying that the GOP belongs to Donald J. Trump.’ Period. Meanwhile, Representative Ashley Hinson, R-IA, pushes back on the dimwit Bill Gates suggestion that Americans learn to eat synthetic beef. Good. Because anyone talking about ‘synthetic beef’ may as well be talking about ‘Soylent Green.’ Look for the movie.
- 2021 Sunday D: Elsewhere, Representative Michael McCaul, R-TX, thanks ‘AOC for crossing the aisle and urging help to the suffering citizens of Texas.’ Finally, Congressman Steve Scalise, R-LA, says that ‘$60 billion already exists with which to reopen the nation’s schools.’ Why won’t the Dems use it? Add to that the fact that Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson said that ‘Joe Biden missed an opportunity to work with the GOP on the stimulus with which to help the American people, beset by the Chinese Virus.’
- 2021 Sunday E: In Kentucky, a black police officer is fired for having handed over the personal information on his fellow non-black police officers to Black Lives Matter communists. Elsewhere, Camden County, Missouri, becomes the first Second Amendment sanctuary county in the state. We want to see this spread to every freedom-loving part of the country. Next, a NASA supply vessel on the way to the International Space Station bears the name Katherine Johnson named for one of the iconic mathematicians depicted in the film “Hidden Figures.” She was the main black female whose calculations were spot on and enabled the United States to win the space race and to put men on the moon and to return them to Earth.
- 2021 Sunday F: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 111,277,677 confirmed cases, +373,840, 2,464,390, confirmed deaths, +8,321, and 62,783,718 confirmed recoveries, +272,053. Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 28,325,091 confirmed cases, up 64,375 from yesterday’s reporting, 502,493 confirmed deaths, UP 1,660, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- same as reported for nearly three-plus weeks now. It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump. Time to impeach this pathetic, senile moron. NOW. NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 172,892 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S. Joe, YOU claimed you had a plan to defeat the communist virus, what the hell are YOU going to do about it- sit on your ass and blame everything on Donald Trump. Shame on you, ‘Usurper Joe,’ shame on you.
- 2021 Sunday 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: 3,527,454 confirmed cases, 49,167 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,778 confirmed cases, 430 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 336,819 confirmed cases, 4,886 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Minnesota: currently, they have 479,104 confirmed cases, 6,500 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 750,043 confirmed cases, 5,577 confirmed deaths, and 693,730 confirmed recoveries.
- 2021 Sunday H: The Boy Scouts of America welcome their first class of female Eagle Scouts. Next, United to stop flights on some Boeing 777 planes. Meanwhile, since we no longer watch Saturday Night Live, we learn today from news sources that the comedy show won’t portray either feeble old Joe Biden or his VP Kamala Harris. That figures. Elsewhere, a new poll shows that tourism and the hospitality industries are going to have a slow rebound, one not expected to occur until sometime in the end of Kamala Harris’, uh, Joe Biden’s first term in 2024.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
Archivists managing the UFO catalogue released another live album, this one culled from the tour in support of “Misdemeanor” back in 1986. Phil Mogg set about forming a new band with some new musicians but when he sought to get a record contract, they signed his endeavor as ‘UFO’ and thus we have UFO Mk. II. The new band featured Mogg, Tommy McClendon (lead guitar), Paul Raymond (guitars/keyboards/vocals), Paul Gray (bass), and Jim Simpson (drums). This is a glorious addition to the “UFO” catalog in much the same way when both Joe Perry and Brad Whitford dumped Aerosmith back in the 1980s and Steven Tyler carried on with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay. We think you will find this album absolutely glorious which is why we are wholeheartedly behind it. We hope you will seek out “Heaven’s Gate,” (April 17, 1995), and add it to your collection- you will enjoy it.
