  54. 2014 Monday: Chinese authorities finish clearing out last protester holdout sites in Hong Kong where the people demanded more freedom and without China picking their candidates and holding the elections.  So much for freedom in Hong Kong.

  58. 2018 Saturday: President Donald Trump said Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke would be leaving the administration at year’s end; Zinke was facing federal investigations into his travel, political activity, and potential conflicts of interest.  Fearing that the incoming administration of Brazilian President-elect Jair Bolsonaro could restrict homosexual marriage, about 40 gay couples exchanged wedding vows in downtown Sao Paulo.        
  59. 2019 Sunday: Top Republicans in the House and Senate are coordinating with the bogus impeachment trial of President Donald J. Trump upcoming in the U.S. Senate.  The Democrats are trying to remove the president over a phone call between him and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky earlier in the year in which, the President asked his counterpart to continue investigations into fraudulent activities on the part of the Biden Family.  Democrats are attempting to bully various GOP senators into recusing themselves from the trial.  What a load of crap.[x]   
  60. 2020 Tuesday: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY, congratulates ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden and Kamala Harris on becoming the official ‘president-and-vice-president elect.’  Next, former President Barack Hussein Obama chides President Donald J.

  61. 2020 Tuesday A: House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, R-LA, blasts the SILENCE surrounding California Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell’s lengthy affair with a Chi-Com honeypot spy, Christine Fang, aka Fang-Fang.  No one seems to want to address the real espionage scandal in their midst.  Could it be because MOST Democrats in House and Senate receive financial support from the Chi-Coms?   Meanwhile, a bi-partisan group of lawmakers, aka the Gang of Eight, are growing increasingly angrier with House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi who won’t pass any COVID-19 relief bill, not just the one they hammered out.  No one is clear as to WHY Madam Speaker is being so obstinate, but most believe she is waiting for Trump to leave office.  Democrats: strip this senile old bi**h of the speakership.  Do it for the nation.
  62. 2020 Tuesday B: ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden gives a speech this morning marred by his wandering mind, repeated coughing fits, and distractions from God knows where causing him to be incoherent and lost.  This is OUR NEXT PRESIDENT?  We now know the Chi-Coms are running the show.  Meanwhile, Vice President Mike Pence is visiting his home state of Indiana so he can visit a production plant making the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine.  As we speak, thousands of Americans are receiving the vaccine to ward off the Chi-Com Yellow Fever.  Speaking of the Pelosi Pox, we now learn that HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE IS A-OKAY FOR USE IN TREATING THE CHINA VIRUS.  Everyone knew this but dimwits such as Neil Cavuto went ballistic when President Trump admitted to using the medication to ward off the Bat Bug from Wuhan, China.  Wow.   Regarding the Kung Flu, Catholic schools across the country have remained open and have continued instructing their students while government-controlled schools have kept their doors closed.
  63. 2020 Tuesday C: We now learn that the Department of Homeland Security has also been hacked by Russian agents as we learned other agencies were yesterday.   Speaking of foreign thugs, we learn that a record number of journalists around the globe are either in prison or are dead.   Meanwhile, erstwhile Jeffrey Epstein girlfriend and procurer of young girls, Ghislaine Maxwell, proposes a bail package of $28.5 million so she can get the hell out of jail while awaiting trial.  She continues maintaining her innocence.   Elsewhere, bigshot Larry Ellison is the next wealthy person to tell California to ‘kiss my grits’ as he relocates to Hawaii.
  64. 2020 Tuesday D: The Xi Jinping Bat Flu is not dampening First Lady Melania Trump’s holiday visits to children’s hospitals.  She will maintain this especially important tradition until the end of her husband’s first term.  Meanwhile, talk show host Glenn Beck says President Donald J. Trump is ‘one of a kind’ and that he ‘definitely took one for the team.’   He sure has.   Speaking of Yellow Fever 2020, President Trump signs an executive order on increasing economic and geographic mobility for American workers during the pandemic.  Meanwhile, Jeff Rosen becomes acting U.S. Attorney-General following Bill Barr’s resignation.   Speaking of the Department of Justice, the United Auto Workers- UAW- vows to tackle corruption (yeah, right) among its top officials following the deal it made with the DOJ.  Elsewhere, the Federal Reserve Bank weighs different options to help the U.S. economy as the Chi-Vi continues causing problems across the country.  Finally, an NHK-World Japan poll says that due to the China virus running amok, approximately one-third of the nation would like to see the postponed Summer Olympics next year canceled.
  65. 2020 Tuesday E: The Amistad Project says the bombshell Antrim County audit of Dominion Voting Systems corrupt machines and subsequent interrogation of voting personnel and whatever Dominion executives they can get their hands on could very well swing the outcomes of the votes in the battleground states.    Elsewhere, we learn today that little Mayor Pete Buttigieg will become ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden’s U.S. Secretary of Transportation.  Question: what does this closet queen know about ‘transportation?’  Where the heck is Julian Castro?  Meanwhile, Minnesota’s Pardons Board is considering freeing a young black gentleman convicted in 2002 of killing a child via a stray bullet.  Myron Burrell was convicted of the death when he was a teenager and sentenced to life imprisonment even though evidence was faulty and his trial far from fair.  We hope he gets a new opportunity in life. 
  66. 2020 Tuesday F: Now that every illegal alien in Central America believes that President Donald J. Trump is on the way out, the U.S. Border Patrol announces that it is making approximately 2,300 arrests per day and that 70,000 illegals from Latin America tried to cross the border in November.  We hope the Trump administration continues erecting as much wall as possible to stem the tide but IF ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden enters the White House, the country will be submerged by a tidal wave of illegal aliens.  Would the Chi-Coms put up with this s**t?  NO!
  67. 2020 Tuesday G: Here are today’s Comrade Xi Pangolin-Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 72,221,634 confirmed cases, UP by 571,758 cases, 1,612,014 confirmed deaths, UP by 7,498 deaths, and 47,218,235 confirmed recoveries, UP by 406,451 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 16,648,159 confirmed cases, UP by 115,405 new cases, 303,482 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,341 new deaths, and 7,784,483 confirmed recoveries, UP by 306,455 new recoveries.

  69. 2020 Tuesday I: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,199.31, UP 337.76 points (+1.13%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,595.06, UP 155.02 points (+1.25%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,694.62, UP 47.13 points (+1.29%).  The price of GOLD is $1,855.30 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%) while the price of SILVER is $24.61 per troy ounce, -0.034 (-0.14%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,042.90 per troy oz, +3.60 (+0.35%) while the price of COPPER is $3.54 per pound, -0.0045 (-0.13%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,324.00 per troy oz., +5.10 (+0.22%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $47.50 per barrel, -0.12 (-0.25%).  Today, COCOA is $2,589.90 per metric ton, +48.00 (+1.89).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.54 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.82 euros.  Meanwhile, the Trump administration is auctioning off oil and natural gas drilling rights in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.  This, of course, has the liberal environmentalists wetting their panties!   Look, we now know- according to Elon Musk- that there is NOT enough electricity production in the world to fuel all the electric vehicles environmentalists plan to force down our throats.  Let’s get them nuke plants up and running, shall we?  Interesting note: the CEO of Dominion Voting Systems claims his company is ‘the victim of a disinformation campaign.’  Those f**king Russians!
  70. 2020 Tuesday J: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, secure in the fact that he has another six years ahead of him in the upper chamber, ‘urged’ his fellow GOP senators NOT to support any GOP efforts in the House to contest the election when it arrives in the U.S. Senate in early January.  Mitch- if this is how it’s going to be- then we may as well NOT continue funneling money into the Senate races in Georgia.  You, sir, are a piece of festering s**t and you’ve always been a piece of festering ‘shit.’  We might as well undergo a Götterdämmerung moment and watch the country experience an overthrow by socialists.  It it’s going to happen, it’s going to happen and you sir, should not be the leader of anything.   YOU must fight for Trump.   Meanwhile, a Rasmussen poll says a majority of Americans believe that the media buried the Hunter Biden laptop story.  Meanwhile, Senator Chuck Grassley, R-IA, says, “Joe Biden has a lot of explaining to do about son, Hunter.”   Speaking of national security threats, outgoing Rep. Peter King, R-NY, says, “Eric Swalwell must be removed from the House Intelligence Committee” as the guy is an alleged agent of the Chi-Coms.
  71. 2020 Tuesday K: A McLaughlin poll reports that a majority of Americans believe that voter fraud is a national problem and must be addressed and soon.  Meanwhile, U.S. Census estimates the American population could be as high as 336 million people.  When you add the 30-to-75 million illegal aliens living in the shadows of the country, we have a BIG problem.  Not enough to go around- especially for illegal aliens which means we must deport them ASAP as well as finish constructing the Trump Border Wall.
  72. 2020 Tuesday L: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1616 with a $291 million jackpot up for the grab: 01, 10, 18, 20, 46, and Mega 15.  Out of 99,480 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had four numbers PLUS the Mega for a prize of $25,790. 
  73. 2020 Tuesday M: The state of Arizona orders a forensic audit of the Dominion Voting Systems machines and the software used to steal the 2020 Presidential Election from President Donald J. Trump and flip it to ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden and “Kooky Kamala” Harris.  The report must be in by this Friday.  Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi orders everyone on the floor of the House chamber to wear masks even while speaking and anyone who fails to follow her orders will lose speaking privileges and other harsh punishments.  Wow.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Senate will hold hearings on the stolen election and the fraud that went into it tomorrow in the Senate Homeland Security Committee.  Various witnesses will testify.  Finally, reports show that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell received CAMPAIGN DONATIONS FROM DOMINION VOTING SYSTEMS AND OTHER ELECTION MACHINE VENDORS.  Say it ain’t so, Senator McConnell, but it sure as hell would explain a lot as to why you are going against Trump now.
  74. 2020 Tuesday N:  This was where we were one year ago today: Stick around and discover with us- your esteemed hosts- what the Chi-Coms, the Russians, the Iranians, the Venezuelans, the Canadians, and their dimwitted stooges in the Democratic Party are up to today- you will be glad you did…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Richard Thompson released his next studio album, “Mock Tudor,” on September 10, 1999.  Once again, the legendary guitarist delivered the goods which music critics consider to be among his best works yet did not fare well in the stores.  Grunge was exploding all over the place and it was difficult for old-timers to remain current yet in our eyes, Mr. Thompson is ALWAYS current no matter what anyone else thinks.  Joining the smoking hot guitarist/vocalist are (1) Michael Froom (keyboards); (2) Dave Mattacks (drums, percussion); (3) Atom Ellis (bass); (4) Danny Thompson (guitars); and numerous others including a horn section.  For some, Thompson is an acquired taste and for loads of others, he’s always a joy to behold.  We hope you will investigate this one to your hearts’- and ears’- content.  We think you will be glad you did.

Tuesday, December 15, 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…

ENDNOTES:

[i] We are not sure as to when we are going to promote the music of the legendary Dave Clark Five, but we expect to do so at the same time we do Paul Revere and the Raiders, Gary Puckett and the Union Gap, and the amazing Box Tops.  Stick around for the day when we do…

[ii] We promoted the music of HP Lovecraft beginning on Friday, 07-June-2013 through Monday, 10-June-2013.  We hope you will seek the music of this wild acid rock band out and consider adding it to your collection.  You will be glad you did.

[iii] We promoted the music of Vanilla Fudge beginning on Friday, 01-November-2013 through Friday, 15-November-2013.  We hope you will seek this band out and add their music to your growing collection.

[iv] We began promoting the music of an interconnected group of bands including the Small Faces, Faces, and Rod Stewart beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This was a massive undertaking of rock bands and solo artists so we hope you will seek them out and consider adding the music to your album collection.

[v] We expect to promote the music of Steely Dan sometime within the next decade or so.

[vi] We hope to present the music of the Clash sometime before we wrap up our presentation of British rock bands so, please remain vigilant for the day we do.

[vii] We have not yet discussed when Fairport Convention and Richard Thompson will appear.  We sure as heck hope they do soon.

[viii] They ain’t normal either.  Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana, and Democratic presidential candidate in 2019 compares being gay with being black.  This, of course, set off all manner of outrage as it should.

[ix] In boxing, RTD means a corner retirement in between rounds.  Grady Daniels was unable to answer the bell for the next round.

[x] A year later, we would learn that the entire impeachment trial was all a sham.  We would learn PRIOR to the 2020 Elections that Hunter Biden, the bagman for his father, uncle, and for other family members, was doing drugs, receiving vast amounts of cash from the Chi-Coms, the Ukrainians, and other sundry and shadowy globalist players.  We would learn, too, that collusion and conspiracy with foreign powers exists, alive and well in the Democratic Party as lowlife, scum-sucking Democratic Congressmen like Eric Swalwell of California is actually sleeping with a Chinese female intelligence agent for close to 4.5-5 years and only recently broke off Facebook and other social media contact with the Chi-Com ‘Red Sparrow.’  What is it about the Democrats that makes them so f**king corrupt?  Lack of God, we think, lack of God…

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

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

This would have been my photo, I, your host, back in the 1980's when I was the Executive Chef at a country club in the Napa Valley but for security purposes, we have scaled some of our personal info back so now, you get a caricature of me done by up-and-coming Bakersfield street artist, Simone. Nice job, Simone! However, I spent many years working in professional Food Service, having begun as a young boy working for my father in his restaurant over on the coast in Pismo Beach. Food Service is in my blood and it's something I still do actively every day in my late eighties in Washington State. Chef Vladimir Gdansk writes from Mukilteo, Washington.
