Next, according to liberal Democrat sources, Kris Kobach, Kansas’ secretary of state and a member of the Trump transition team, says that the Trump administration will construct a wall along the entire border between our country and Mexico and will also reinstate a registry to monitor Muslim refugees in the country.

- 2019 Saturday: CNN projects on Saturday night that Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards held onto his seat. The Democrat at press time is said to have edged the Republican challenger, businessman Eddie Rispone. Democrats go wild in the streets! Meanwhile, today marks the 500th founding of the city of Havana, Cuba.
- 2020 Monday: Following on last week’s announcement by Pfizer of a COVID-19 vaccine, 90-percent effective, Moderna announces that its own vaccine- one that is 94.5-percent effective- is ready to go. New York Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo threatens the Trump administration with lawsuits if the vaccine does not come to his state and soon. After receiving all manner of help from the Trump administration earlier in the year, the dingbat governor turned around and attacked President Donald J. Trump on his alleged ‘lackluster response’ to the Chinese Virus. This guy is such a POS, he should be on trial charged with thousands of counts of needless deaths because had he not sent Wuhan Flu-infected spreaders into rest homes across the state, thousands of people would still be alive today. Meanwhile, politics continues on and on as lowlife scumbags such as Dr. Tony Fauci, Governor Mike DeWine, and former Governor Asa Hutchinson all attack Trump for not bringing in the Biden transition team. Wow.
- 2020 Monday A: The more the United States learns about the corrupt Dominion Voting System out of our northern neighbor Canada, the angrier millions of Americans are becoming. The sad fact that 33 states use this easily hacked system with its servers in Germany and vote tabulators in Barcelona, Spain, the more we learn that Canada is NOT our friend. IF President Trump survives what the little cross-dresser Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, his father one of the Rolling Stones as his mother was a groupie in 1978-1979, we must cut the Canadians out of any cooperation between our country and theirs. Some of us here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM believe that what Canada has done to us- interfering in our politics- is an act of war and that we should nuke the living hell out of them. – Chef Olaf Bologolo.
- 2020 Monday B: SEC Chairman Jay Clayton is stepping down early. Meanwhile, although Fake News Media continues reporting that the Trump campaign has given up fighting for the Keystone State, Newsmax contributor and presidential strategist Dick Morris says this is ‘bogus,’ that the campaign is fighting in Pennsylvania to stop the theft of the election. Elsewhere, ‘president-elect’ “Pro-China Joe” Biden calls on Congress to pass a sweeping new Chi-Vi relief package and attempts to take credit for the new COVID-19 vaccines developed by both Pfizer and Moderna. Finally, President Donald J. Trump hints at support for a primary challenger to Ohio’s Republican Governor Mike DeWine, a POS RINO who has done whatever he can to thwart the 45th president. The man is no better than John Kasich was, a piece of pond scum who would cut his own party’s throat if it meant liberal news media would love him. Other problems exist in Georgia, a state controlled by Republicans but seemingly doing the dirty work of the Democrats.
- 2020 Monday C: The Chi-Coms and 14 other nations signed a massive trade deal on Sunday that will bring more than 2.5 billion people into a trade pact headed by Beijing, one that excludes the United States. Member countries include: People’s Republic of China, Japan, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Brunei, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia, Myanmar, Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam. Like the Chi-Coms’ Belt and Road Initiative, this is a way by which, the corrupt communist regional power is attempting to become a global superpower, tying nations together- including allies of the U.S.- into a tight web of interconnectivity and one with which, they hope they can destroy the United States, especially IF President Trump is able to pull a victory out of the fire.
- 2020 Monday D: As for the Beijing Bug, here are the numbers for the CHI-VI, you know, COVID-19 Chinese Bat Flu Virus Crisis, the pandemic they started but still try to blame on the U.S.: Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 54,678,159 confirmed cases, +493,801, 1,321,403, confirmed deaths, +6,499, and 35,098,656 confirmed recoveries, +267,664.

Let us look at another nation: Brazil: they have 5,876,740 confirmed cases of the CHI-VI, 166,067 confirmed deaths and 5,322,466 confirmed recoveries.

Price of PALLADIUM: $2,345.10 per troy oz., +15.40 (+0.66%). Here is the price of COPPER: $3.22 per #, +0.0015 (+0.05%). Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $41.42, +0.08 (+0.19%). Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.58 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.84 euros. Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.82 Afghan afghani.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
Simon Nichol released his first official solo album on March 23, 1987, “Before Your Time.” An amazing artist, songwriter, and vocalist, the man has his English and Celtic folk rock down. Joining Simon are Dave Pegg (basses), John Kirkpatrick (accordions), Maartin Allcock (basses), two singers, and Mr. Nichol on everything else. This one can sometimes be challenging to find; however, if you visit sites such as AllMusic, Discogs, and other online emporiums of music, you might find it at a decent price even by visiting eBay and other such sites. Ah, well, seek it out and if able to give it a listen, please do so. We think you will enjoy it as much as do. We still listen to our fading LP format of the record.

PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.
Monday, November 16, 2020, Today in History Blog Post:
Monday, November 16, 2020, Today in History:
We feel compelled to share with our new readers that we are an OPINION SITE and not a NEWS SITE although we do report the news. If anything, we are big history buffs which is why we have been going strong since early 2009…
Tuesday, November 16, 2021:
[i] When we promoted the music of Fleetwood Mac, we should have shared the music of Chicken Shack in the same way we should have tied the music of UFO in with it seeing as how musicians from Chicken Shack joined both bands at later times.
[ii] We promoted the music of the greatest blues-rock-British-boogie band, Savoy Brown, beginning on Friday, 28-January-2011 through Monday, 28-February-2011. Kim Simmonds is one of the greatest guitarists of all time which is why everyone should check the music of this fabulous band out ASAP.
[iii] We look forward to doing the music of UFO as well as of the Michael Schenker Group within the next year or two. We hope you will join us when we do.
[iv] It’s a Beautiful Day is one of the all-time great San Francisco rock bands. We began promoting them on Thursday, August 25, 2011, through Monday, August 29, 2011, and again on Tuesday, February 04, 2014, through Wednesday, February 05, 2014. We encourage everyone to check their discography out and consider adding them to your collection.
[v] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018. Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.
[vi] This is a great song from the “Walls and Bridges” album that everyone must seek out and consider adding to their collection. We promoted this album on Sunday, 12-25-2016. We hope you will seek it out.
[vii] We will be presenting Elton John’s music at some point.
[viii] We began promoting this famed San Francisco rock band on Friday, March 25, 2011, through Monday, April 04, 2011, and again from Tuesday, August 20, 2013, through Monday, September 02, 2013. Please, seek the albums out featured in the blog posts on those dates.
[ix] Both President George W. Bush and President Barack Obama waged war on U.S. fighting men and women which was not right. We must return to fighting wars the way we did from Vietnam backward to the Spanish-American War. We cannot prosecute soldiers for fighting a soulless enemy, one that we definitely need to kill using any means imaginable.
[x] Like many of the Democrats, Charlie Rangel is a perfect example of the corruption that permeates that party. Everyone knew for decades that Congressman Rangel was a crooked POS, yet it took them far too long to get his ass out of Congress.
[xi] This guy is one of the big purveyors of fake news and should be doing tough time in prison.
WE THANK EVERYONE FOR JOINING US AT WORDPRESS.COM AND FOR AIDING US IN CONTINUING TO DO THE WORK WE TOOK UPON OURSELVES MORE THAN A DECADE AGO
