As usual, rampaging rioters set fire to numerous stores and shops, causing mayhem wherever they went. Antifa and Black Lives Matter are always lurking in the shadows. Thank you, Xi Jinping, thank you, George Soros for funding this anti-American mayhem.
- 2017 Wednesday: Poor President Donald J. Trump, who had faced harsh criticism for initially blaming the deadly weekend violence in Charlottesville, Va., on “many sides” (which was flipping TRUE), told reporters that there were ‘very fine people on both sides,’ of the confrontation and that groups protesting against the white supremacists were ‘also very violent’ which they were. In between those statements, at the urgings of aides, Trump had offered a more direct condemnation of white supremacists. What Trump was saying is that many of the people there were protesting against the removal of Confederate war memorial statues and were not all white supremacists, yet the FAKE NEWS media once again twists the story to fit their narrative that Trump is a racist.
- 2018 Thursday: In Northern Sudan, disaster occurs along the Nile River as raging floodwaters swamp a boat carrying mostly school-aged children; at least twenty-five drown while others disappear down the river.
- 2019 Friday: President Donald J. Trump finally does something many people have long-wished him to do and that was to suspend the security clearance of former communist and former CIA director under Barack Hussein Obama- John Brennan.
- 2020 Saturday: Here are today’s COVID-19 Wuhan Virus, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, aka the Chinese Flu, the Kung Flu, you know, the Chinese “gift” that will not stop giving, statistics for today: 21,280,608 confirmed cases, UP 243,665, 767,422 confirmed deaths, UP 5,496, and 13,290,879 confirmed recoveries, UP 241,905. In the United States, here are today’s numbers: 5,403,756 confirmed cases, UP 50,148 new cases, 170,632 confirmed deaths, UP 998, and 2,733,055 confirmed recoveries, UP 34,926. Next, in the three states where 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: 613,689 confirmed cases, 11,147 confirmed deaths, but thanks to Gov. Gavin Newsom being little more than a mildewed POS, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. In Hawaii, here are the stats: 4,543 confirmed cases, forty confirmed deaths, and 1,756 confirmed recoveries. Finally, in the too-far-left-to-save-state-of-Washington, here are the stats: 66,139 confirmed cases, 1,755 confirmed deaths, and like California’s worthless governor, Gov. Jay Inslee will not list the number of confirmed recoveries. Let us look at the numbers of another state we have not looked at lately, Arkansas, the “Natural State,” one of the worst states for out-of-control liberal politics. The number of cases in the state is 52,392 while the number of deaths is six hundred. The number of confirmed recoveries is 44,905. Thank you, Governor Asa Hutchinson for your honesty and integrity.
- 2020 Saturday A: Let us look at the second-highest nation infected with the Wuhan Virus, Brazil: The South American nation has 3,317,0996 cases of Xi Jinping’s gift to the world what with 107,232 deaths, and 2,384,302 recoveries. India is the third highest nation infected with this dastardly, lab-engineered virus what with 2,589,208 confirmed cases, 50,084 confirmed deaths, and 1,860,672 confirmed recoveries. Russia comes in fourth what with 917,884 confirmed cases, 15,617 confirmed deaths, and 729,411 confirmed recoveries. Now, let’s look at the Chi-Coms, the place where this needless disaster began: last week, they come in 30th among nations but this week have dropped to 32nd place (yeah, right) with 84,808 confirmed cases, 4,634 confirmed deaths (same as last week), and 79,519 confirmed recoveries (although our sources in Hong Kong and Macau tell us they are 10-12-times higher than reported which sounds about right for the main communist hellhole on the planet. Shame on them and damn them for the crime they have committed on the world).
- 2020 Saturday B: After the NYPD union endorses President Donald J. Trump, New York Democrats go berserk, particularly the little communist skank, your friend and ours, the Baby Evita, aka Sandy Cortez, former barmaid in the Big Apple, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, now known as AOC. Not sure what these frigging Democrats expected but we predict that all across the United States, one law enforcement union after another is going to endorse President Donald J. Trump. To tell you the truth, we expect Richard Trumka and the AFL-CIO to fall in line behind President Trump because in SOCIALIST-COMMUNIST countries, labor unions are for show while in FREE nations such as the United States, Labor serves a purpose and unions represent the workers. As long as they do not try to devour businesses but work with them, amazing things can occur. Trumka- get with it: NOW.
- 2020 Saturday C: Robert Trump, President Trump’s younger brother, died of an unknown illness at age 72. He was a Trump Org. executive and a much more private member of the family although he supported his brother’s presidency.
- 2021 Sunday: Friends, I am the Voice of Freedom broadcasting to you from the hellhole of Los Angeles, California, a place beset by unnecessary lockdowns, restrictions, illegal aliens running amok, and a bastion of our beloved governor, “Nazi” Newsom. Time to eliminate the existing order and it’s going to happen on September 14, 2021. Stick around for the latest anti-Chi-Com news, politics, Chi-Vi updates, BIG PHARMA vaccine makers’ stock prices, and news about the border crisis…

Beverly Carrick: The World’s Greatest Artist (1927-2012)
ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
Long available only in ‘bootleg form,’ “Nothing is Easy- Live at the Isle of Wight 1970” came out yet again on March 12, 2013, and featured a phenomenal concert captured on disc and also on video although that is not a part of this release. Tull appeared on the final night of the famed music festival, sandwiched between the Moody Blues and the legendary Jimi Hendrix. The band features the lineup of Ian Anderson (guitars, flutes, and vocals), Martin Barre (guitars), Glenn Cornick (bass, harmonicas, and vocals), Clive Bunker (drums and percussion), and John Evan (keyboards). This is a rollicking show if ever one existed which is why there is NO question as to why one should NOT add this to their growing collection of CDs and vinyl. We hope you seek this one out and add it to your collection so you can enjoy it day after day after day. We definitely believe that you will be glad you did.

It is becoming clearer: our ‘betters,’ the leaders of the world, may have conspired with the Chi-Coms to infect the world so they could amass incredible wealth and achieve total dominion
If the Chi-Coms are monkeying around with American DNA, the next pandemic could herald the end of the world…
Today, we begin tracking stock prices of the BIG FOUR PHARMA companies manufacturing COVID-19 vaccines in the U.S. cos you know politicians are investing heavily in them hence the full court press on getting the jab…
You can’t make this stuff up: on Day No. 1, Joe Biden destroys U.S. oil and gas production and now that gasoline prices are sky-high, instead of flipping the switch, he is begging OPEC to increase production…WTF!
Message to Mike Lindell of My Pillow fame: God bless you for doing the Lord’s work in exposing just how far down the tubes the United States has fallen and who is responsible for it…
