  59. 2018 Wednesday: After worldwide condemnation and a dramatic drop in the price of Tesla stock, Elon Musk apologizes for having slandered drowned Thai cave diver who helped rescue the Thai boys soccer team from the cave complex in which they had been trapped by rising floodwaters.  Musk had called the renowned diver, “Pedo guy,” inferring that he was somehow a pedophile.  What really had Musk bothered is that his attempt at rescuing the boys and their coach failed.  Meanwhile, Turkey ends its two-year state of emergency on this date.

  56. 2012 Thursday: The Rolling Stones[viii] celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of their first performance at the Marquee Club in London, England.  Elsewhere, in Hama province in Syria, the Syrian army goes berserk against rebels killing at least 200 of them and wounding loads of others.   President Bashar al-Assad seeming approved of it via his silence.

  59. 2015 Sunday: Roger Federer fails in his attempt at becoming the first tennis player to win eight Wimbledon titles; however, Novak Djokovic wins his third Wimbledon title.   Elsewhere, the Guardian reports a scathing ‘independent report’ that says the American Psychological Association was complicit in the ‘torture’ of suspected and/or captured terrorists, especially in Afghanistan and in Iraq.  Folks, they did what had to be done and that was to extract information from jihadists.  Typically, under the rules of war, terrorists, spies, guerillas, and irregular forces have NO rights under military law.  
  60. 2016 Tuesday:  In a speech in New Hampshire, U.S. senator and failed presidential candidate Bernie Sanders swallows his pride and endorses Hillary Rodham Clinton for president, even though he won loads of primaries and caucuses.  Elsewhere, Iraq sees continued violence as a car bomb detonates in a Baghdad market killing at 12 people and injuring another 20 or so.  Bombs go off in other parts of the strife-ridden nation. 
  61. 2017 Wednesday: A68, the world’s largest iceberg, estimated to weigh in at about 1.1 trillion tons, calves off the Larsen C Ice Shelf in Antarctica and heads out to sea.  Of course, the Green banshees go berserk, claiming it to be the end of the world.  Uh, okay.  Meanwhile, Nobel Peace Prize winner and pro-democracy advocate Liu Xiaobo said to be in ‘grave condition yesterday’ by Chi-Com doctors is said to be suffering from late-stage liver cancer.  The United States says he should be allowed to come to the U.S. for treatment.  The Chi-Coms disagree.

  64. 2020 Sunday: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– The Beijing Bat Flu, the one Xi Jinping sent to the rest of the world, continues trashing the world as the escapee from the Wuhan Institute of Virology continues taking names and calling numbers.  Here are the stats for the globe for today: 12,507,849 confirmed cases, 560,460 confirmed deaths, and 6,890,914 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, here are the stats for today: 3,290,994 confirmed cases, 136,631 confirmed deaths, and 970,345 confirmed recoveries.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 304,650 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 154,545 deaths

[xvii]    Let’s look at one other location- Wyoming: $3.396.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Brazil: $4.234 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,514,573,672,003 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xix]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Switzerland, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Belgium with $253 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  73. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 111 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the southern border and her 17th day since her one and only trip to the border.  Wow.  Meanwhile, President Joe Biden’s regime is easing restrictions on pregnant illegal alien heifers to enter the country.  Yet another slap in the frigging face.  Enough already, Joe, enough!
  74. 2021 Monday G: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Following threats by the Taliban, the U.S. announces plans to scale down the size of the U.S. Embassy in Kabul.  We suspect the U.S. will abandon the Afghans the same way the U.S. abandoned the South Vietnamese.   Elsewhere, U.S. forces continue coming under attack from Iranian-backed jihadists thanks to Joe Biden’s questionable airstrikes on their positions.   Meanwhile, after 62 years of socialist hell, Cubans are flooding the streets protesting communism and the damnation under which they have lived.  President Donald J. Trump came out today and said that ‘he stands with the Cuban people!’  Where is slobbering Joe Biden?  The regime in Havana claims the people are upset because they cannot keep the lights on and the Miami ‘mafia’ is trying to topple them. [xx]   Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says the Cuban protests are a ‘fight for freedom.’  The mayor of Miami, Francis X. Suarez says that what’s going on in Cuba could ‘affect the entire hemisphere.’
  75. 2021 Monday H: Foreign News / Overseas News II– In other interesting Foreign News/Overseas News, the Biden regime continues to support the 45th president’s policies when it comes to denying the South China Sea to the Chi-Coms.  How long, Joe?  In other communist news, Christian churches continue to burn in Canada while Nero- uh, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau- son of one of the Rolling Stones- continues to play pocket pool in Ottawa.  Next, a south Florida man is at the forefront of the assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moise.
  76. 2021 Monday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– As the federal government recruits its army of Joestapo COVID-19 door knockers, the recruits are told to pay NO attention to NO SOLICITING SIGNS, stick to the script, and get people’s health data.  Let me say this loud and clear: IF your Joestapo thugs violate HIPPA laws, we will photograph them and go to court.  YOU cannot come after anyone’s private health information, Joe.  (Note- a lot of people are going to get their asses beat and some are going to get shot.  Bea O’Malley still says that ‘every time white liberals encourage black folks to do something for their own good, it never works out well for them).
  77. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Meanwhile, as the fight to force EVERY U.S. CITIZEN to get vaccinated while allowing millions of illegal aliens to go about their business, a strange ally for the anti-Chi-Vi-vaxxers arrives on scene with teachers’ unions saying “HELL, NO” to mandatory vaccinations for a disease that 99-percent of the afflicted survive. In France, President Emanuel Macron is ordering ALL healthcare workers to get vaccinated or to give up their jobs. Next, the FDA is preparing to slap a warning of autoimmune disorders onto the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine.
  78. 2021 Monday K: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News Rep. Jody Hice, R-GA 10th congressional district, says that just under 35,000 questionable ballots remain in the Peach State.  Famed conservative politician Newt Gingrich says that the Dems push against voter ID is a ‘dead loser.’  Meanwhile, Ohio has identified 117 illegal aliens who either registered to vote or who actually voted.  Round them up, put them in prison, then deport them and their entire families.  In other news, Texas Democrats flee to Washington, D.C., so they won’t have to vote on the Lone Star State’s new election security laws.  Sounds like a filibuster of some sort, huh?
  79. 2021 Monday L: Political News I– As the United States continues imploding by the day in the hands of drooling Joe Biden, patriotic Trump supporters are stepping up across the nation and seeking to win governorships in a number of states.  God bless them.  The fact that President Trump won 71-percent in the CPAC straw poll on Sunday adds fuel to the fire.  So does listening to losers such as Rep. Adam Kinzinger, RINO-IL 16th congressional district, mouth stupidities about how evil President Trump is.  (Note- this guy is on the Fourth Annual Lavrentiy Beria nominees list).  Speaking of CPAC, YouTube blocked the American Conservative Union from sharing video from the Dallas CPAC conference.  These scumbags in Big Tech simply cannot get out of their own way.
  80. 2021 Monday M: Political News II– Entertainer John Rich said that liberalism is trashing Nashville as liberal moneybags are now employing censors to squelch the voices of patriotic Country Music stars.   Meanwhile, the G20 is aboard the Joe Biden ‘global minimum tax hike on corporations’ while smaller nations that can provide tax shelters in exchange for help in economic development are deadest against the BS.  Elsewhere, Democrats are fighting tooth and nail to stop the Pennsylvania Election Audit doing everything they can do to prevent it from occurring.  (Note- IF there’s nothing to hide, what’s the problem Keystone State Democrats?).  Meanwhile, Donald J. Trump Jr. is slamming the ATF nominee, David Chipman.  Everyone should.  Finally, Joe Biden continues making empty threats about Russia and their hackers, news reporters have begun laughing at the feeble old fool.
  81. 2021 Monday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– The U.S. State Department is set to release a report on the U.S. government’s plan to prevent and to respond against incidents of global atrocities.  What are you going to do about the Chi-Coms, Secretary Anthony Blinken?
  82. 2021 Monday O: Mass Shootings News– A new report says that the massive increase in gun sales has little to nothing to do with the equally massive spike in gun crimes in BLUE STATES and BLUE CITIES.  Increased shootings occur in gun-free zones which are exclusive domains of DEMOCRATS.  Rep. Nancy Mace, R-SC 1st congressional district, says that cities with ‘tough gun control laws see increased crime.’  Amen.
  83. 2021 Monday P: National Security News– Today, we learned that 120 retired U.S. military upper echelon officers have signed a letter to the Biden regime warning of encroaching Marxism through all levels of government.  Good.  Time to start raising troops.
  84. 2021 Monday Q: Moron News I– Today’s MORON NEWS involves the highly esteemed Federal Bureau of Investigation.  The FBI is continuing its push to enlist disgruntled family members to frame other family members, neighbors, friends, co-workers, and anyone else with whom they come in contact IF they suspect them of being WHITE SUPREMACISTS.  Wow.  No wonder NO one will ever speak to a government agent without an attorney present.
  85. 2021 Monday R: Sports News I– Tokyo has declared a state of emergency ahead of the upcoming 2021 Summer Olympics thanks to the rise in Xi Jinping Bat Flu cases.   Elsewhere, as the Washington Redskins continue thrashing around for a new, politically correct name acceptable to the Democratic-Socialists and their WOKE pansy allies, the ‘Skins blow off the name, ‘Warriors.’  Not acceptable.  (Note- send letter to ‘Skins owner and suggest the Washington Woosies).
  86. 2021 Monday S: Texas State News– Former state Senator Don Huffines, R-TX, threw his hat into the ring today to challenge Governor Greg Abbott.
  87. 2021 Monday T: Energy News– Governor Doug Burgum, R-ND, says that Joe Biden’s crackpot energy policies have cost his state more than $100 million.
  88. 2021 Monday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from solo Beach Boy, Brian Wilson, “Imagination,” came out on June 16, 1998.  Not commercially successful nor well-received, it is what it is.  At some point, composers begin to run out of compositions, which is what it is.  Still, Wilson does produce some gems and there are occasional ones here.  Wilson plays virtually all of the instruments and provides the vocals but also has a slew of studio musicians to help him round out the sound and to fill holes in the production.  We hope you seek this one out and consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure.  We think you will be glad you did.  Check it out.  Now.

189. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, JULY 08, 2022

39. 1943 Thursday: On the fourth day of the massive tank-and-air battle at Kursk, in the Soviet Union, German Field Marshal Walter Model commits the last Axis tank reserves in a desperate bid to win the battle. Carnage is horrendous what with tens of thousands killed by the hour. Smoke billows from the shells of destroyed tanks, tanks the Russians can replace which the Germans cannot.

SUMMER SESSION 2022

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 126

189. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, JULY 08, 2022:

Vice President Nelson Rockefeller, U.S. Attorney General James P. McGranery, the Allman Brothers Band featuring Jai “Jaimoe” Johanny Johnson, the Electric Light Orchestra featuring Colin Walker, the Soft Machine featuring Roy Babbington, and Chef Wolfgang Puck:

Trump was residing in the White House. [xvii]
  89. 2021 Thursday O: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch raised an important question today on Newsmax regarding January 06, 2021: did U.S. banks hand over data on their customers who were in or around the U.S. Capitol on the day of the FALSE FLAG OPERATION carried out by the Democrats to the FBI?  We believe he is onto something that should cause customers of these banks to close their accounts and go elsewhere much more friendly to them.  Elsewhere, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department has confiscated record amounts of illegal pot grows run by Mexican drug cartels within the county.  Meanwhile, an FBI task force member was ambushed, shot, and killed outside a federal building in Indiana.  Looks like the chickens are coming home to roost.  Next, prisoners sent home by the CARES Act are quivering in fear about the pandemic ending and them having to return to prison to finish their sentences.  Finally, Stormy Daniels’ pimp, uh, attorney, Michael Avenatti, received a prison sentence of 30 months for trying to extort Nike.

  96. 2021 Thursday V: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump is set to headline the upcoming CPAC event in Dallas, Texas, from July 09-11, 2021.  Everyone is excited because they understand that whatever the scurrilous, scumbag Democrats (and their RINO stooges) throw at him, he comes out smelling like a rose.
  97. 2021 Thursday W: Sports News– The Phoenix Suns beat the Milwaukee Bucks 118 to 108 to take a two-game lead in the 2021 NBA Finals.  Next game is Sunday night in Milwaukee.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Record companies being what they are, are always seeking new and/or novel ways with which to repackage, promote, and sell an aging group’s music.  Thus, we have the new ‘studio’ album, “Stars and Stripes Volume One,” released on August 19, 1996.  Folks, this album contains re-recordings of a dozen of the band’s older songs with guests adding vocals.  We have the core group of Alan Jardine, Brian and Carl Wilson (the latter of whom would soon die from cancer), Mike Love, and Bruce Johnston doing vocals with guests such as Toby Keith, Willie Nelson, Timothy B. Schmitt, and some others.  We view it as a novelty as should you- still, completists being what they are- a record company’s dream- will most likely want to seek this album out and to then add it to their collection.  Seek it out at your favorite haunt for music- digital or physical- and see if it’s something you want.

186. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, JULY 05, 2022

1971 Monday: President Richard M. Nixon certified the 26th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which lowered the minimum voting age from 21 to 18. In 2019, the Democrats want to lower the age to 14 and to extend voting rights to felons in prison. It never stops. Many believe that voting should return to what the Founders wanted, ONLY people owning property had the right to vote. When you bestow voting on the masses, they will never vote for anything or anyone who does not represent their selfish interests like Democrats with trannys, illegal aliens, and criminal felons.

[xvi]        
  65. 2021 Monday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.303 per gallon, $3.011 in Florida, $4.021 in Hawaii, and $3.801 in Washington state. [xvii]    Let’s look at one other location- Tennessee: $2.881.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Gabon: $4.166 per U.S. Gallon. [xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,487,342,957,683 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS. [xix]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after ALL OTHERS, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is we return to the top with Japan with $1,251,000,000 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position.
  66. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Folks, by our count, today is Day No. 104 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the southern border and Day No. 10 since her photo op visit to El Paso where everything was choreographed for the gibbering jackal.  According to One America News, the numbers are astounding and remember- somehow, the Dems are blaming President Donald J. Trump for the utter fiasco unfolding along the southern border.  Here are their numbers for this horrendous holocaust of illegals invading our country: first, (1) Total Cost this Day of caring for the vermin flowing in from around the world: $553,348,672.  Imagine this money going to Tunnel 2 Towers, to Wounded Warriors, to Disabled American Vets?  It would be life changing.  Next, (2) Total Cost this Year of caring for the tidal wave of unwashed humanity seeking to rape the United States: $203,293,130,752.  Imagine this money going to help the American people recover from the disaster of the Chi-Com Bat Flu Virus f**king up the country?  It would be amazing.  Third, here is the estimated number of illegal aliens who have swarmed into the USA this year: 2,083,591.  Fourth and final, here is the number of fence-climbing, river-swimming, visa-overstaying illegals lurking within the fabric of the U.S.- and remember- this is a conservative estimate: 36,083,592.  (Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  Folks, we created this blog back in 2009 and at that time, we estimated the numbers of illegals in the United States to be between 35-50 million whereas now, we estimate there are between 75-100 million of illegals sucking away at what belongs to the American people.  This is NOT right.
  67. 2021 Monday G: Foreign News / Overseas News I– The Taliban is ramping up its warnings that if NOT ALL foreign troops evacuate Afghanistan, they will be considered open targets of the criminal Islamist thugs.  Elsewhere, BIG TECH companies are threatening to leave Hong Kong due to new Chi-Com laws being imposed on them.   In other fascinating news, we learn today that Israel used autonomous drone swarms to locate targets in the Gaza Strip during their 11-day conflict earlier in the year.  The drones located the targets, and the Israelis neutralized the scumbags.  Excellent.   Meanwhile, Russian warplanes are conducting bombing runs in the Black Sea while NATO allies- mostly the U.S. and Great Britain- are conducting military exercises with Ukraine.  Vladimir Putin did say last week that he could have sunk the British warship sailing the waters and that ‘World War III would NOT occur.’  Okay, Vlad.  Remember- the U.S. and the U.K. saved your asses in World War II.  POS.
  68. 2021 Monday H: Joe Biden News I– When drooling Joe Biden was asked about recent Chi-Com and Russian cyberattacks on the U.S., he fumbled through his notes looking for the answer given him via his handlers.  How embarrassing this loser is to the American people in particular and the Free World in general.  Loser with a capital ‘L.’  Speaking of the cyberattacks of which slobbering Joe Biden knows nothing, they are demanding $70 million to restore data to the companies they have hacked.
  69. 2021 Monday I: Political News I– Rep. Cori “The Bitch” Bush, CPUSA-MO 1st congressional district, is drawing heavy flak for having proclaimed “Black people still aren’t free in the United States.”  Says a woman elected to the U.S. Congress by the citizens (and illegal aliens, too) of her district.  Are people like “The Bitch” this stupid not to see the irony in what she has said?  Citizens of Missouri, vote this piece of human fecal matter out of office in November 2022.  Another left-wing loser, Rep. Maxine “Prune Face” Waters, CPUSA-CA 43rd CD, displayed her stupidity when she babbled that ‘Fourth of July applies ONLY to white men.’  Oh, tell us more, oracle of ignorance.  Speaking of female dogs, Governor ‘Gravel Gertie” Gretchen Whitmer, CPUSA-MI, is trailing in new polls.  Good.  She must go, too.   Oh, since we are on this topic of female curs, Governor Kate Brown, CPUSA-OR, says that ‘FEMA is racist’ because they ‘won’t help illegal aliens’ in her state and that ‘illegal aliens are more important than native citizens.’  WTF is wrong with these people?
  70. 2021 Monday J: Political News II– In other political news, famed political strategist and historian Dick Morris says that the prosecutions going against President Donald J. Trump and the Trump Organization are designed to ‘shut him up’ which they won’t.  Speaking of the President, Rep. James “Chi-Com Cash” Clyburn, CPUSA-SC 6th CD, says that ‘President Trump may have to come and testify before the ‘esteemed and apolitical’ January 06, 2021, Select Committee.’  Uh-huh.  In your dreams, communist bag man.  In other political news- and this is humorous- Governor Asa Hutchinson, RINO-AR, says he ‘is considering a 2024 presidential run.’  Sure, you and Chris “Lard Lad” Christie, Mitt “The RINO” Romney, Nikki “Two-Face” Haley, and loads of other RINOs.  In the words of Bob Dylan, “You ain’t going nowhere.”
  71. 2021 Monday K: Political News III– House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd CD, points out the truth that it’s the Democrats who are defunding law enforcement.  (Note- the Dems always tack defense bills or law enforcement bills onto other, extreme lunatic bills which the GOP cannot vote for and then blames the Republicans for doing what the Dems seek to do like defunding the cops.  Meanwhile, Democratic-Socialists are crying that the conservatives on the U.S. Supreme Court are laying the groundwork for what they call the ‘devastation to come’ regarding democracy.  Folks, the Supreme Court is standing with the proponents of FREEDOM and FAIR ELECTIONS so stop with the crying and with the attempts at corrupting our elections system.
  72. 2021 Monday L: Joe Biden Regime News I– TC Energy- the company behind the now-canceled Keystone XL Pipeline- is suing the Biden regime over shutting down the project which benefits the peoples of Canada and the United States.  By canceling it, Joe Biden has strengthened Russia, OPEC, and other oil producers while leaving the U.S. dependent upon other nations.  Shame on Joe Biden.  We hope TC Energy wins the lawsuit.
  73. 2021 Monday M: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– A California man is facing federal charges after a truck in which he was transporting a gigantic amount of commercial grade fireworks blew up and injured 17 people.  Elsewhere, CNN reports that over the course of the three-day Fourth of July weekend, more than 400 shootings have occurred in mostly BLUE towns and cities with at least 150 of them being FATAL.  Democrats blame Donald J. Trump for all the violence when in fact, it’s the Democrats corrupt and evil policies causing the violence.  Just look at Chicago Mayor Lori “Frog-Face” Lightfoot- she blames Trump and everyone else for the problems besetting her city when in fact, it’s HER.  It’s ‘Frog-Face.’  She is a loser.
  74. 2021 Monday N: Fake News I– The New York Times has come under fire for comparing ‘flag wavers’ to ‘Trump supporters.’  Most Trump supporters are flag wavers but the corrupt, left leaning ‘newspaper of record’ hates the country and hates patriots.  Shame on them.  Why are they even still in business?   Speaking of America-haters, a new poll says that ONLY 36-percent of young Americans are proud of the greatest nation on Earth.  Shame on them.  Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, blasts the ‘Old Grey Lady’ for calling the American flag ‘divisive.’
  75. 2021 Monday O: Economic News– GOP-controlled states are doing extremely well economically and doing so sans the extra unemployment insurance the Biden regime is raining down upon the citizens of BLUE STATES with which to keep them at home and their economies in the doldrums.
  76. 2022 Tuesday:  Everyone knows the drill- stick around to discover the truth along with the rest of us- you will be glad you did…

[i] We hope to promote the music of both the Band and its members sometime in the next 10-15 years.  The presentation would include the solo catalogs of Robbie Robertson, Rick Danko, Levon Helm, Garth Hudson, and Richard Manuel.

[ii] We promoted the music of Steppenwolf, beginning on Friday, 25-May-2012 through Sunday, 17-June-2012.  You definitely need to check the music of this iconic band out ASAP.

[iii] Sadly, Detective was a short-lived band but one that had the potential to be as legendary as Led Zeppelin, if only Disco was not trashing the airwaves.  You will find their three albums on: (1) Tuesday, 29-July-2014, (2) Thursday, 31-July-2014, and (3) Friday, 01-August-2014.  We hope you will seek them out.

[iv] When the time will be right for the presentation of Elvis Presley is unknown but if we are still going strong in the 2030s, we expect to do so.  Please, stay tuned.

[v] We look forward to promoting the music of Aerosmith one day.  We hope within the next 8-10 years.  Remain vigilant.

[vi] Look for the Clash sometime within the next 5-10 years.  We know you will enjoy them.

[vii] We shared the music of the Rolling Stones (and the group’s individual members) beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members solo projects.

[viii] It should be clear to all interested, well-informed readers that the Democrats could care less about black lives unless, of course, they can use their agonies to accomplish their perverted political goals.  Ask yourselves, why do blacks face murder and mayhem week after week in BLUE cities across the nation?  Why are Planned Parenthood centers predominantly near black and other minority communities?  Because to Democrats, ‘black lives don’t matter.’  Why then do blacks and other minorities continue voting for Democrats?

67. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, MARCH 08, 2022

2021 Monday J: In other fascinating news, Iran threatens to RAZE Tel Aviv if Israel should attack the ‘peace-loving Islamic Republic of Iran.’ We say, NUKE the hell out of Iran- give them something to suck on in the same way that President Ronald Reagan ordered the sinking of most of their pathetic navy back in the early 1980s.

  87. 2021 Monday A: U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken says for some inexplicable reason that ‘the U.S. must include BOTH communist China and Iran in engineering the Afghan peace process’ successful conclusion.’  WHY?  The Trump administration had it well underway so now, we must bring in the Iranians and the Chi-Coms?  WTF?  Still, we knew the Biden administration would do stupid s**t such as this.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, we learn today that they are continuing to exploit U.S. cybersecurity weaknesses which is why we must stop the scumbags.
  88. 2021 Monday B: The NYPD continues going about the ‘business of the people,’ cracking down on ILLEGAL PARTIES.  Whoa.  Speaking of New York, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., joins the chorus of state and national lawmakers demanding an investigation into crumbling Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo over the far too many allegations of sexual harassment lodged against him PLUS the fact that between 15,000-20,000 deaths of seniors and disabled folks in the Empire State’s nursing homes.  The man sent Chi-Vi-infected patients into nursing homes where the state’s vulnerable died and then- as they were dying- had them transported back to state hospitals so they would die there, driving up hospital death rates but not the nursing homes.’  Wow.  Still, an ever-defiant Governor Cuomo says, “I WILL NOT RESIGN!  UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!”[ix]  
  89. 2021 Monday C: Speaking of Cuomo killing the state’s nursing home residents, former three-term Governor George Pataki, R-NY, says what Cuomo did to nursing home inmates is ‘beyond the pale’ and ‘highly criminal.’   Heck, even the New York Senate’s majority leader- Andrea Stewart-Cousins- says the guy must go and that person is a Democrat.  NOTE- we are now seeing Harvey Weinstein-like behavior as Gov. Cuomo is trying to ‘buy’ his way to ‘freedom:’ today, he floated the idea of raising taxes on wealthy New Yorkers even though his state has received $12.58 billion in federal COVID-19 money.  This is what libs do when they are in trouble- promise to jack wealthy people in their state, promise to fight for abortion at all stages of gestation and even after birth, and to crush the NRA.  Let us see what he does next.
  90. 2021 Monday D: Police in Pennsylvania report the arrest of a man accused of more than 1,000 auto burglaries since February 2020.  Wow.  Pennsylvania law enforcement is finally doing its job.  In other oddball news, a Harvard professor suggests that ‘comfort women’ used by Japanese troops during World War II were all willing prostitutes.  And this on the 110th International Women’s Day![x]  Meanwhile, NASA Mars scientists encourage girls to ‘reach for the stars.’  Elsewhere, the effort to recall Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom has 1.9 million approved signatures.  This POS is on the way out.    Finally, it’s confirmed that French multi-billionaire ($7.15 billion to be precise) Olivier Dassault lost his life with two others in a helicopter crash yesterday.
  91. 2021 Monday E: In COVID-19 news- numerous states take the big step towards life after the Chi-Vi by making plans to eliminate masks and to reopen their economies and even their schools.   Next, COVID-19 travel insurance could become a valuable tool in the reopening of the world’s countries to hospitality and travel industries.  Next, a new book says world diplomats were warned about the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s numerous problems TWO years prior to the Chi-Coms allowing the Xi Jinping Bat Virus to engulf the world.  Meanwhile, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci now says that ‘fully vaccinated people can mingle with one another sans masks.’  Thank you, Dr. Fauci.  Then, the AMAZING Dr. Fauci throws icy water on that by warning the country, ‘the U.S. can experience a new mass outbreak of the ‘VID by reopening too fast and easing mask mandates.’  Thanks again, Dr. Fauci.   However, the CDC is allowing illegal alien holding pens along the border with Mexico to fill beyond capacity, NOT worrying about the Chi-Vi there.  Likewise, towns in Texas used as dumping sites for illegal aliens, report that one-quarter of the illegals test positive for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.
  92. 2021 Monday F: Pro-Trumper Senator Lindsey Graham is trying to harness the Donald J. Trump magic.   Next, Senator Roy Blunt, R-MO, says he won’t be seeking another term thus opening the seat up for another young gun like Senator Josh Hawley.   Next, Vice President Mike Pence plans on giving a speech- his first since leaving the White House- sometime next month.  Meanwhile, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, blasts Joe Biden’s nominee for deputy secretary of state Windy Sherman over her being a big proponent of abortion ‘rights’ at all moments of gestation and after the child’s birth.  What a horrible human being.  In another move, Joe Biden appoints Erin Pelton as a special adviser for him, a person who lobbied for Qatar.  Wow.
  93. 2021 Monday G: In other Joe Biden news, he is directing the U.S. Department of Education to review Title IX changes made by the Trump administration.   Next, the earpiece in Joe Biden’s ear tells him to announce that he is going to form a Gender Policy Council so he can continue f**king up the country’s young people.  Next, Joe Biden’s secretary of the U.S. Treasury Janet Yellen says the passage of the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill is going to ‘restore the U.S. economy by 2022.’[xi]  Uh, okay, not when you borrow money from the Chi-Coms.  Not when you allow the Chi-Coms to buy up vital U.S. industries such as meat-packing and food preparation as well as allowing them to buy distressed U.S. commercial and residential properties via straw companies thus making them our de facto landlords. 
  94. 2021 Monday H: What else is happening today- the 80th Annual Daytona Beach Bike Week kicks off today.  Next, NBA star Kobe Bryant’s rookie card sells for a cool $1.8 million.  Next, the billionaire ex-wife of Amazon business mogul Jeff Bezos- Mackenzie Scott- marries a high school teacher.  Good for him.  Moving on, famed legal scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz asks the extremely important question of the Cancel Culture- ‘Why stop with Dr. Seuss?’  Speaking of the Cancel Culture, Congressman Matt Gaetz, R-FL, says the real goal behind the “CC” is to drive people into SELF-CENSORSHIP- something free Americans will NEVER submit to, NEVER. Meanwhile, SCOTUS refuses to hear the final Trump era election fraud case, this one a violation of election law in Wisconsin.  Elsewhere, Jason Snead of the Honest Elections Project looks to reestablish faith in the U.S. Elections system.

Officer Derek Chauvin.  State Attorney General Keith Ellison, Democrat, thought he could pull a fast one and go for a second-degree charge of murder.  He can’t and he won’t get it.  Speaking of the trial, it’s already off to a horrible start as jury selections freezes.  Meanwhile, George Floyd’s brother says he hopes for ‘justice, for a conviction’ of Officer Chauvin.  Again, we shall see.[xii] 
  96. 2021 Monday J: The GOP pushes the Biden administration to get an imprisoned U.S. Marine in Russia released and sent home.  Good luck with that, the Biden administration is as impotent as impotence can be.  In other fascinating news, Iran threatens to RAZE Tel Aviv if Israel should attack the ‘peace-loving Islamic Republic of Iran.’  We say, NUKE the hell out of Iran- give them something to suck on in the same way that President Ronald Reagan ordered the sinking of most of their pathetic navy back in the early 1980s.
  97. 2021 Monday K: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 117,060,462 confirmed cases, +459,454, 2,597,318, confirmed deaths, +7,680, and 66,132,420 confirmed recoveries, +211,728.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,293,090 confirmed cases, up 34,149 from yesterday’s reporting, 530,614 confirmed deaths, UP 1,087, and 112,744,650 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.  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 drooling POS.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 202,137 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.

Meanwhile, the White House praises the courage of Megan Markle and the individual formerly known as “Prince Harry” for sobbing their story to Oprah Winfrey.  Folks, who the f**k cares?  Hopefully, Harry will recognize his mistake sooner while there is still time to repair the self-inflicted damage than later when the royal family will never welcome him back in.  Megan sobbed that the royals worried about the color of baby Archie.  Uh, again, who cares?  Oprah don’t act so flipping shocked, you has-been.  In other news, the family of Ashli Babbitt, slain at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, by a Capitol Hill police officer for still unknown reasons is considering filing a wrongful death lawsuit against the department.   Next, Joe Biden grants temporary immigration status to Venezuelans who have fled their country for the U.S.  Finally, JOE BIDEN IS GOING TO GIVE A PRIME TIME ADDRESS THIS THURSDAY!  Glory, glory hallelujah, glory,  glory hallelujah, glory, glory hallelujah, the world is going to hear the mummy speak!

Speaking of jokes, the U.S. State Department has zipped its lips and won’t accuse the Chi-Coms of committing mass genocide against the Uighur Muslims in Xinjiang Province.  The State Department is also tiptoeing around the fact that the Chi-Coms are not honoring their commitment to a half-century of incorporation of Hong Kong- former British crown colony- by seeking to corrupt their voting system so that it resembles the authoritarian system on the mainland.  FREE Hong Kong!  FREE Taiwan!  FREE Macao!  FREE Tibet!  FREE Mainland China!  NO MORE COMMUNISM! 
  102. 2021 Monday P: General Russell Honoré concludes his report into the Capitol Hill Riots of January 6, 2021, the good (left-wing) general announces that the Capitol Police Department must have greater authority in times of crisis.  Uh, okay.  Will the increased power allow us to demilitarize our nation’s capital?  Meanwhile, Georgia state lawmakers present a bill that will terminate NO-EXCUSE absentee voting.  The Democrats won’t like this.  Still, if state government won’t enforce the state’s voting laws, what difference does it make?   
  103. 2021 Monday Q: Two of Joe Biden’s picks for top posts in the U.S. Department of Justice promise to rain hell down upon the evildoers behind Antifa- and- Black Lives Matter-instigated-and-led Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021.  Lisa Monaco- nominated to be U.S. Deputy Attorney General and Vanita Gupta- nominated to be Associate Attorney General promise to go after and crush the people threatening our democracy.  Both proclaim to keep the U.S. Department of Justice nonpartisan while assumed U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland says, ‘Donald Trump’s claims of widespread voter fraud are bogus.’  Meanwhile, Joe Biden isn’t budging from his desire to keep the ‘filibuster in place’ even as the rest of his party seeks to overturn it and to ram through all their crazy leftist bull crap ideas.  In other news, liberals are rubbing their hands in glee having heard that an investigation into ‘citizen Donald Trump’ is underway to investigate his claims the 2020 Presidential Election were rigged.  The Democrats can’t let go.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The only American in the Band- Levon Helm- struck out on his own for a brief period while the Band was in somewhat of a hiatus.  Thus, he formed his own group which subsequently released the album, “Levon Helm and the RCO All-Stars” on April 15, 1977.  Of the 10 songs on the disc, most of them were covers which is cool because we have a wide range of musical influences here.  The band was more of an orchestra what with Levon Helm (lead and backing vocals/drums), the great Paul Butterfield (harmonicas), Steve “The Colonel” Cropper and Fred Carter Jr. (guitars), Booker T. Jones (keyboards and percussion), the “Night Tripper” aka Mac Rebennack (keyboards and gris-gris), Donald “Duck” Dunn (bass), a horn sections, strings, a conductor, and guest appearances by fellow Band mates Robbie Robertson and Garth Hudson.  We love the album, particularly the Chuck Berry cover of “Havana Moon,” which is why we encourage everyone to seek this album out wherever you can find it- you will be glad you did.  At Amazon, you can pick it up for less than $25 so what the heck?  Seek it out now…

TODAY IN HISTORY, TUESDAY MARCH 08, 2022, BLOG POST #4,476

PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.

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

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, March 08, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] Not sure when we will begin presenting the music of this famed American band- the Monkees- but when we do, we also do the solo catalogs of Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork.  Please stay tuned for more information.

[ii] We hope to share the music of the Eagles, Joe Walsh, Don Henley, Glenn Fray, and others, including Poco, sometime in the next decade.  Please remain with us.

[iii] See previous.

[iv] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  At the time however, we overlooked presenting the music of the group’s individual members- Mick Fleetwood, Peter Green, Danny Kirwan, Jeremy Spencer, Bob Welch, Lindsay Buckingham, and Stevie Nicks.  We hope to do that at some point in the near future.  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates.  We thank you.

[v] Not sure when we will get around to doing the music of Three Dog Night but if we ever return to promoting the music of famed rock bands from the 1960s and the 1970s, we sure as heck will include this stellar band, one that is still performing to this day.  We saw them in 2019 and all we can say is “Wow.”

[vi] We first began promoting the music of Trapeze beginning on Monday, 15-October-2018 through Saturday, 27-October-2018.  We hope you will seek the music of this famed band out and consider adding it to your collection.

[vii] We began promoting the music of the Jimi Hendrix Experience and Jimi Hendrix on Sunday, 22-December-2013 through Thursday, 16-January-2014.  Please check the albums out, you will enjoy them.

[viii] We began promoting the music of the Grateful Dead- including Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Phil Lesh- beginning on Tuesday, 30-August-2011 through Wednesday, 11-January-2012.  Then, we did a second series featuring more albums by this fabled San Francisco band beginning on Friday, 09-August-2013 through Monday, 19-August-2013.  At some point, we will have to do a third series as the music from this band never ends.  Please, seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[ix] New York State Attorney General announced the names of the team investigating the handsy governor today.  Godspeed folks.

[x] Why are we celebrating International Women’s Day?  It’s a flipping joke when liberals want trannys to play in girls’ sports.  There is no reason to celebrate a day such as this until the Western World regains its senses.  We believe- if you want to celebrate trannys- a third category of scholastic sports should be created- tranny sports.  Let’s do that.  Then, we can celebrate International Women’s Day.

[xi] Speaking of Treasury Secretary Yellen, reports suggest she is AWOL from office.  Left-wing news channels and online sites remain mum on her whereabouts or what she might be up to while center and center-right news sites are raising questions about the aged old gal.  We would like to know ourselves. 

[xii] In a similar note- all charges pending for Breonna Taylor’s boyfriend- the target of the police raid that killed Ms. Taylor- have been dropped.   Likewise, in other connected news, the mother of Eric Garner warns that the cops will assassinate the character of the victim, meaning that the Minneapolis P.D. will point out the fact that Floyd was a thug and that he was doped up and overdosing the day of his death.  Just saying.  Grant Stinchfield of Newsmax says the prosecution will be unable to obtain a conviction of 2nd Degree Homicide because of the fact they cannot prove that Officer Chauvin was the cause of Floyd’s death.  The cause of Floyd’s death was DRUGS, primarily fentanyl but other drugs as well. 

GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES, GOD BLESS UKRAINE, AND OTHER COUNTRIES THREATENED BY AUTHORITARIAN REGIMES…

41. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 2022, UPDATE A

Randi Weingarten- head of all the teachers in America- should shut up and allow schools to reopen in person minus the masks. Who’s she kidding? Hell, she could end up like another infamous union boss, Jimmy Hoffa. People are tired of all this mierda de vaca. No se lo desearía a nadie, amigos míos.

41. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 2022, UPDATE A:

Randi Weingarten- head of all the teachers in America– should shut up and allow schools to reopen in person minus the masks.  Who’s she kidding?  Hell, she could end up like another infamous union boss, Jimmy Hoffa.  People are tired of all this mierda de vacaNo se lo desearía a nadie, amigos míos.

  2. 2022 Thursday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 490,043 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 1236,791 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in TWELVE MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 386 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.            
  3. 2022 Thursday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 8,767,944 confirmed cases, 82,461 confirmed deaths, and 8,685,483 confirmed recoveries (since California won’t report recoveries anymore, we are doing it).  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,767,014 confirmed cases, 67,322 confirmed deaths, and 3,720,706 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 229,531 confirmed cases, 1,239 confirmed deaths, and 228,292 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,391,026 confirmed cases, 11,194 confirmed deaths, and 1,380,807 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Connecticut: they have 711,695 confirmed cases, 10,219 confirmed deaths, and 563,628 confirmed recoveries.[iii]   
  4. 2022 Thursday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day- Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 3,347,657 confirmed cases, 9,399 confirmed deaths, and 3,011,502 confirmed recoveries (somewhat the same numbers).   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Papua New Guinea, 144th place on the list: 38,222 cases of the virus, 610 confirmed death and 36,311 confirmed recoveries.[iv]                      
  5. 2022 Thursday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,241.59, DOWN 526.47 points (-1.47%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,185.64 DOWN 304.73 points (-2.10%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,504.08, DOWN 83.10 points (-1.81%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $89.82 per barrel, -0.06 (-0.07%).  The price of GOLD is $1,827.20 per troy oz., -10.20 (-0.56%) while the price of SILVER is $23.14 per troy ounce, -0.39 (-1.65%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,026.10 per troy oz, -16.40 (-1.57%) while the price of COPPER is $4.61 per pound, -0.05 (-1.08%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,232.19 per troy oz., -22.82 (-1.01%).

  6. 2022 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $4.682 per gallon, $3.468 in Florida, $4.435 in Hawaii, and $3.951 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: American Samoa- $3.699.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the 122nd HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- Cyprus: $5.981 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,024,144,646,029 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[x]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Mexico the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Kuwait holds $47,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  7. 2022 Thursday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News- The top U.S. commander in Afghanistan- Rear Admiral Peter Vasely- said that the evacuation of Americans from the imploding country was harmed by pleas from the White House, Pope Francis, and others seeking help for their own interests.  Well, it would appear that Joe Biden is going to do the same thing for Americans living in Ukraine.  If I were living in Ukraine, I would be getting the hell out of there now.
  8. 2022 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- The ‘world’s border czar’- Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the southern border now for 314 days and more embarrassing than that, she has not been to the border in 228 days.  Vergonzoso.   Okay, amigos, the cost of caring for the illegal alien invaders for the past 41 days stands at $2,948,091,077.  Next, the cost of caring for the illegals for the past 406 days is around $41,647,296,419.  Extremely bad for us U.S. taxpayers.  Next, the number of illegal aliens who have crossed the border in the past 41 days is around 335,114.  Finally, the conservative low estimate of mojados living in the country is 42,528,748.  We still believe the number is closer to 85-125 million which is far, far worse.  ¡Extraordinario!
  9. 2022 Thursday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Russian military forces begin military exercises with Belarus near Ukraine’s northern border.  Speaking of Russia’s military exercises, the ‘Neville Chamberlain of our time—British Prime Minister Boris “BoJo” Johnson says of Russia’s drills that they ‘signal a dangerous moment in world history.’  Looks like we’ve got another Tony Blair-like stooge for yet another American warmongering president.  Wow.  Meanwhile, despite the media trying to play down fears of the Russians invading Ukraine, photos show the continued Russian build up along three sides of Ukraine’s border.  Diplomats from various nations are scurrying back and forth between Moscow and Berlin seeking some method by which the world can defuse this perilous situation.  The Iranians are bragging about the deployment of their new missiles that can hit Israeli, U.S., and other enemies across the region.  Time to nuke the Iranians.
  10. 2022 Thursday I: Foreign News-Overseas News II- Residents of Rotterdam, Netherlands, threaten to pelt Jeff Bezos new luxury yacht when it sails downstream from the shipyard where Dutch workers built it.  The reason they are pissed is because that in order for the vessel to go downriver to reach the sea, a substantial portion of a historic, 140-year-old bridge will have to be dismantled to allow the behemoth egress to the sea.  This should be fun to watch.  Meanwhile, the fascists in Canada are trying to topple the Canadian trucker freedom protests.  Justin Trudeau- little Mr. Blackface himself- might as well be Marie Antoinette: ‘let them eat cake.’  His good friend in Washington, D.C., Joe Biden, is telling him to go all out ‘federal,’ i.e., bring in the military and crush these people.  Friend, you are going to have your own problems with U.S. truckers very soon.  Amigo, vas a tener tu propio problema con los camioneros americanos muy pronto.
  11. 2022 Thursday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I- Here’s a bad one: a new report says that ONE YEAR following COVID-19 infection, the likelihood that one will suffer a heart attack goes up by a shocking 60-percent.  Wow.  Next, a new COVID-19 variant has been discovered in the sewage of the Big Apple.  Investigators suspect that it could be related to the billions of rats that inhabit the city’s rank underground.  This variant could be the one for which, the Chi-Coms did not even plan, one that is crossed with humans, bats, and now rats.  This could be the variant that DESTROYS the planet.  Let’s see what is happening in a year or so…
  12. 2022 Thursday K: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News- As growing resistance over never-ending mask mandates continues growing, more and more Democrats are leaping aboard the “NO-MASKS RUNAWAY FREIGHT TRAIN.”  Dems, it’s better late than never.   Meanwhile, north of the U.S. border, Alberta, Canada, is lifting ALL COVID-19 vaccine and mask restrictions all the while leftwing hack mayor of Windsor, Ontario, Canada, says that his goons are ready to begin the physical removal of the FREEDOM TRUCKERS.  This should be good.  Tiananmen Square anyone?
  13. 2022 Thursday L: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News- (1) Pfizer: $50.60 (2) AstraZeneca: $58.60 (3) Merck & Company: $76.56 (4) Johnson & Johnson: $169.42 (5) Novavax: $88.00 (6) BioNTech: $167.54 (7) Moderna: $167.54.
  14. 2022 Thursday M: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News- (1) Raytheon: $95.06 (2) General Dynamics: $211.52 (3) Boeing: $218.75 (4) Lockheed Martin: $385.43 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $382.02.

  16. 2022 Thursday O: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News- (1) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $63.58 (2) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $31.87 (3) Beyond Meat: $61.49.
  17. 2022 Thursday P: Big Box Store Stock Prices (Follow the Money 5) News- (1) Wal-Mart: $136.08 (2) Lowe’s: $227.40 (3) Home Depot: $355.09 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $518.48 (5) Amazon: $3,180.07.
  18. 2022 Thursday Q: President Donald J. Trump News- President Donald J. Trump endorses Congressman Warren Davidson, R-OH 8th congressional district, for another term.   Next, President Trump commented on the recent story about National Archives operatives going to Florida to his Mar-a-Lago club to seize his White House records as just more ‘fake news.’
  19. 2022 Thursday R: Joe Biden News I- Joe Biden says he’s doing a ‘deep dive’ into FOUR potential U.S. Supreme Court replacements for retiring Associate Justice Stephen Breyer.  IF you believe this, well, I won’t say what I think.  All they need to be is BLACK and have a panocha between their legs.   Ooh que la.
  20. 2022 Thursday S: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster-  A new CNN poll says that Joe Biden’s disapproval ratings are close to 60-percent now.  Wow.  Congressman Greg Murphy, R-NC 3rd congressional district, says that ‘calling on Joe Biden to undergo a cognitive test is NOT partisan.’  Amen.  Everyone wants to know that the guy leading the country does NOT have Jell-O for brains.   Next, Joe Biden says he will NOT send U.S. troops to evacuate Americans fleeing Ukraine should his friend, Vladimir Putin, send Russian forces across the border into that country.  The commander-in-chief is sending his world-famous ‘border czar,’ Vice President Kamala Harris to Eastern Europe to see if she can work the same magic on the Ukrainian-Russian border she has worked on the U.S.-Mexico border.  Wow.
  21. Joe Biden Regime News I- Apparently, the Biden regime is using invasive phone hacking technology from Cellebrite to target American citizens unbeknownst to them.  Meanwhile, the Biden regime continues trying to put distance between them and the incredibly stupid $30,000,000 plan with which to bestow crack pipes upon BLACK Americans as some sort of ‘equity.’  Everyone recalls that when Joe Biden was a senator, a piece of crack the size of a half-dollar would get you FIVE years in the slammer, no ands, ifs, or buts.  Joe was the genius who produced this ludicrous idea and hundreds of thousands of blacks went to prison because of HIS law.   Personally, we think JOE’S leering visage should be stamped on every crack pipe so that they become collector’s items.
  22. 2022 Thursday U: Joe Biden Regime News II- Fresh on the heels of issuing a terrorism warning yesterday regarding possible trucker FREEDOM PROTESTS in the United States, the Department of Homeland Security issued another threat warning today: be on the lookout for anyone questioning Joe Biden’s (lack of) COVID-19 policy or anyone critical of it as being ‘spreaders of misinformation.’  It appears that these people are going to begin pursuing news people, bloggers, and other proponents of the rights bestowed upon us by the U.S. Constitution.  DHS: go F**K yourselves.  Finally, Joe Biden has hired a freak-o-zoid of freak-o-zoids to work at the U.S. Department of Energy.   Look up Sam Brinton and see what you think.  PJ Media and Tucker Carlson- among numerous others- reported on this loony tunes loser today and man, oh, man, the maricons are overrunning the country.  It appears the End Times are in motion…
  23. 2022 Thursday V: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation- Nancy Pelosi’s special goon squads among the District of Columbia Police Department caught a break today when a report said that the atrocious beatdown given to an unconscious Trump supporter on January 06, 2021, was ‘objectively reasonable.’  Everyone who saw this horrible pummeling of the cataleptic person saw it for what it was: an unfortunate abuse of police power and yet, “Mumbles” Pelosi is proud of her ‘boys in blue,’ the now-infamous Joestapo.
  24. 2022 Thursday W: Political News I- Congressman Pat Fallon, R-TX 4th congressional district, says that ‘Vladimir Putin is like a mob boss, he wants to control Ukraine.  Next, Senator Jon Thune, R-SD, lambasted Joe Biden as someone who listens to UNIONS over parents on mask and vaccine mandates.  Head of the various teachers’ unions, Randi Weingarten, says schools cannot safely resume until COVID-19 numbers are near negligible.  We suspect that what happened to Jimmy Hoffa can easily happen to YOU, Ms. Weingarten.  Lighten up, already. 
  25. 2022 Thursday X: Political News II- Thug governor of Washington state- Jay Inslee, DS, signed a bill outlawing high-capacity magazines in his state other than for law enforcement, members of the military, and one or two other acceptable groups.  Chef Vladimir Gdansk says, “F**K HIM- he’s not handing over his high-capacity mags to any liberal goon.’  God bless you, Vladdie.  In other news, Congress passes a bill ending forced arbitration for worker sexual abuse claims.
  26. 2022 Thursday Y: Political News III- In shocking news today, we learned that a smartphone hacking company has thousands of customers spread across the U.S. government.   Next, now that momentum is growing to ban lawmakers from participating in stock trading, Congresswoman Elaine Luria, D-VA 2nd congressional district, is blasting this stupid idea.  She likes trading stocks and just because “Mumbles” Pelosi is now onboard with stopping stock trading by lawmakers and their spouses, Congresswoman Luria is having none of it.  Elsewhere, former U.S. senator and #MeToo casualty Al Franken, DS-MN, popped up today and said he ‘didn’t receive any due process.’  It was your own people who tossed you to the wolves, Al. 
  27. 2022 Thursday Z: Political News IV- RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said that ‘Joe Biden lied about inflation.’  In other important news, we learned that within the first month of the new abortion rules in the Lone Star State, abortions dropped by a whopping 60-percent.  See, there are other ways to go about preventing unwanted pregnancies which is preventing unwanted pregnancies via condoms, birth control pills, and going the good old ‘Turkish route’ among other things.  Let’s stop murdering our future, folks.  Thank you, Texas.   Finally, Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke- running for governor in Texas because Joe Biden failed to give him a job- is backing off his promise of seizing everyone’s guns.  He thinks we don’t remember what he said?  What a dumb ass.
  28. 2022 Thursday AA: Miscellaneous News I- Liberals in Yellow Springs, Ohio, have come up short after comedian Dave Chappelle and some others lambasted them for planning to put Section 8 housing into their upscale neighborhood.  Chappelle said he would pull ALL his businesses out of the community if the daffy libs went ahead with their social-engineering plan.  It appears the libs are going to back down.  Next, an exasperated Joe Rogan said, “If you want MY advice, DON’T take MY advice.”  Good one, Joe, good one.
  29. 2022 Thursday BB: Lawsuit and Legal News- Citizens of Venice Beach, California, have had enough and are threatening to sue Los Angeles County and City for millions of dollars over the never-ending homeless crisis Democrats do not want to fix.  Meanwhile, in the Bay Area, city mayors are urging landlords and even homeowners to take homeless drug addicts, pedophiles, and bums into their homes.  (Note- amigos, for $5,000 per month, we will take in a homeless person but don’t be surprised if they begin disappearing and ending up in landfills around the state.  Illegals could be following suit.  No vamos a seguir aguantando esta mierda.  Elected leaders, please take note.
  30. 2022 Thursday CC: Crime and Punishment News- We learned today that some scalawag or group of scalawags stole approximately 60,000 honeybees from a pollinator field owned by the Giant grocery company in Pennsylvania sometime between January 28 and January 31, 2022.  The scum most likely stole them to help pollinate their pot fields so look there, first.   Meanwhile, as the other three officers involved in the killing of drug-addled George Floyd undergo their own process, a police lieutenant for the Minneapolis P.D. said the other officers should have intervened to stop Officer Derek Chauvin from squeezing the life out of the perp.
  31. 2022 Thursday DD: Tranny News of the Day- At a gender-neutral awards event, poor Adele found herself slammed for saying ‘she’s proud to be a woman.’  WTF is wrong with that?  Anyhow, the WOKIES are attacking poor Adele now.  We guess her comment made some chicks with dicks feel bad they weren’t born sans dicks.  Stop all the crying already.  Malditos llorones.
  32. 2022 Thursday EE: Amigos, nos esforzamos por no dar rodeos, por lo que proclamamos que en este blog mundialmente conocido encontrarán “sólo los hechos” y la “verdad sin ambages”.  Quédate para ver los hechos del día…

  49. 2019 Friday: While enfeebled House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi continues holding the articles of impeachment lodged against President Donald J. Trump but not carried over to the Senate as the law states they must, experts continue debating whether ‘Trump is actually impeached’ of he is not.  Pelosi says, ‘he is and will forever be’ but others say, ‘no, he’s not, not until the declining speaker carries them over to the upper chamber and presents them to the Senate majority leader.’   Meanwhile, the Federal Reserve claims that ‘Trump’s economic war with communist China has backfired.’  They don’t like the tariffs.

  51. 2020 Sunday A: The Georgia Bureau of Investigation and election investigators are running another audit of election signatures.  Speaking of fraudulent elections, President Donald J. Trump calls out the Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel, Democrat, for resisting calls for an investigation into the rampant voter fraud and corruption that occurred across the state in the hours and days after Election Day November 3, 2020.  Meanwhile, in Rockford, Illinois, cops are on a manhunt after last night’s fatal shootings at the Don Carter Lanes bowling alley in which three people died and another three were wounded.   Elsewhere, after another thug fires into a crowd in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, two people died and several others were injured.  Cops there are seeking the 37-year-old shooter.
  52. 2020 Sunday B: In Nashville, federal, state, and local cops are closing in on the perp behind the RV bomb explosion in downtown that damaged 41 buildings- a revised figure from the original 20- and searched the home of a suspect, a computer tech specialist named Anthony Quinn Warner. 
  53. 2020 Sunday C: We learned of, yet another outrage committed by Nancy Pelosi’s nephew, Governor Gavin Newsom of California.  Californians voted to increase gas taxes two election cycles ago so the state’s crumbling roads systems could be repaired.  The promise to the voters was that the tax revenues would go directly to the road repairs but oh, no, with the stroke of a pen on an executive order, Gavin Newsom redirected the $5 billion the road improvement law raised into fighting GLOBAL WARMING as well as funding the defunct high-speed rail system (and we also think into CalPERS, the state’s penniless state employees retirement fund).  Anyone living in California MUST SIGN the recall petition.  This POS must go.
  54. 2020 Sunday D: On the healthcare front, we learn that 1.56 billion PPE masks will find their way into the Pacific and Indian Oceans this year because Asians could give a flying f**k about polluting the world’s oceans.  Meanwhile, as fears increase over the new strain of the Chi-Vi discovered in Great Britain, California health officials now are testing for the B1.1.7 strain of the Chi-Com Virus.  Speaking of this foul lab-engineered disease, a New York state healthcare network is under investigation for unauthorized distribution of the Wuhan Virus vaccine.   Elsewhere, Japan shuts down air travel other than for its citizens returning home over fears of the B1.1.7 Xi Jinping Bat Flu strain.   Finally, three European nations- Germany, Hungary, and Slovakia administer the first China Virus vaccinations in Europe to citizens over the age of 80.
  55. 2020 Sunday E: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Yellow Bat Flu- the -disease the Chi-Coms manufactured in their Wuhan biowarfare lab and their allies, the Democratic Party- used to throw the election to “Pro-China Joe” Biden, aka “Chi-Com Joe”:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 80,671,407 confirmed cases, +505,047, 1,762,630, confirmed deaths, +7,868, and 45,612,622 confirmed recoveries, +362,356.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 19,262,641 confirmed cases, up 227,422 from yesterday’s reporting, 336,458 confirmed deaths, UP 1,819, and 8,412,707 confirmed recoveries, UP 97,410.
  56. 2020 Sunday F: 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: 2,144,430 confirmed cases, 24,231 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 20,970 confirmed cases, 285 confirmed deaths, and no longer any mention of confirmed recoveries at this point.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 240,763 confirmed cases, 3,283 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: New Jersey- currently, they have 463,166 confirmed cases, 18,630 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo is living there: 401,470 confirmed cases, 3,226 confirmed deaths, and 364,012 confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of Israel, anti-Benjamin Netanyahu protesters are in the streets of the country demanding he step down from office.
  57. 2020 Sunday G: White House economic adviser Stephen Moore says that ‘tax cuts for businesses should be included in the COVID-19 relief bill,’ which would help all of them get back on their feet sooner as would the authoritarian governors allowing everyone to return to work instead of persecuting people who want to open their businesses or return to work.    Regarding the economy, U.S. retail sales have risen by 3-percent over the course of the holidays meaning big box stores and online businesses are cleaning up while smaller businesses are dying.
  58. 2020 Sunday H: Here are today’s NFL games: (5) Chicago Bears, 41 (8-7) @ Jacksonville Jaguars, 17 (1-14) Sunday 10:00 A.M.  (6) Atlanta Falcons, 14 (4-11) @ Kansas City Chiefs, 17 (14-1) 10:00 A.M.  (7) Indianapolis Colts, 24 (10-5) @ Pittsburgh Steelers, 28 (12-3) 10:00 A.M.  (8) Cleveland Browns, 16 (10-5) @ New York Jets, 23 (2-13) 10:00 A.M.  (9) Cincinnati Bengals, 37 (4-10-1) @ Houston Texans, 31 (4-11) 10:00 A.M.  (10) New York Giants, 13 (5-10) @ Baltimore Ravens, 27 (10-5) 10:00 A.M.  (11) Denver Broncos, 16 (5-10) @ Los Angeles Chargers, 19 (6-9) 1:05 P.M.  (12) Carolina Panthers, 20 (5-10) @ Washington Redskins, 13 (6-9) 1:05 P.M.

355. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, DECEMBER 21, 2021

2020 Monday: Speaking of the ‘Pope,’ he says- get this- that ‘vaccines made using aborted fetal tissue is ETHICAL.’ If there was ever reason to leave the Catholic Church, this is it. The vicar of Christ no longer represents the Holy Trinity but has shown his hand as Satan’s minion by his allegiance to the DEEP CHURCH. Time for the College of Cardinals to topple this Third World POS and to find a European to head the Church.

  55. 2016 Wednesday: The evacuation of civilians from eastern Aleppo in Syria continues as the United Nations announces it is going to establish a war crimes tribunal to punish those guilty of such crimes.  Good luck with that.   Elsewhere, Donald Trump announces he is going to nominate noted economist Peter Navarro to the White House National Trade Council.  Liberals go berserk because he is anti-China.  Not until 2020 would we learn just how many American politicians are in the back pockets of the Chi-Coms.  A shocking number.   President-elect Trump also chooses Carl Icahn- someone whom the left labels a ‘corporate raider’- as a special adviser on regulatory reform.  Of course, the leftists are upset…
  56. 2017 Thursday: Following President Donald J. Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, the United Nations- always taking the sides of the Palestinians- lights him up- verbally.   Meanwhile, the Red Cross announces that cholera cases in war torn Yemen now total 1 million.  It is a humanitarian disaster.
  57. 2018 Friday: In Ecuador, law enforcement and military personnel get their man when they track down FARC thug- Walter Arizala- criminal and drug trafficker- and kill him in a gun battle.  The authorities sought the POS for the murders of two journalists earlier in the year.  Elsewhere, in the Czech Republic, a mining disaster occurs when a methane explosion in Karvina claims the lives of 11 Poles and 2 Czechs.
  58. 2019 Saturday:  While House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi continues to hold her two articles of impeachment against President Donald J. Trump close to the vest, the White House thinks she is going to cave.   Meanwhile, RINO Republican former governor of Massachusetts says, ‘Republican senators will be voted out of office if they march in lockstep behind President Trump.’  Elsewhere, after a massive pile-up of 69 vehicles on a Virginia interstate highway, local officials close the road.  It is said that poor weather such as fog may have led to the mass collisions.  
  59. 2020 Monday: First, we learn that in Georgia, 1.3 million PLUS voters have early voted in the Peach State using the same corrupt Dominion Voting Systems machines with the same corrupt Democratic hacks running the run-off elections as ran the general election and with the same corrupt POS RINO Governor Brian Kemp and the same corrupt POS RINO Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger overseeing the process.  Do we expect either Senator Kelly Loeffler said to hold a 52-46 lead over communist NOI-loving scumbag Reverend Raphael Warnock or Senator David Perdue who is said to hold a 50-48 advantage over “Pro-China Jon” Ossoff to win?  We sure as heck don’t.   We expect fraud to win and to win BIG.
  60. 2020 Monday A: The NYPD caught 150 people early this morning at an illegal nightclub in the Big Apple.  Next, Utah RINO Senator Mitt Romney says, ‘the GOP has strayed from the importance of character.’  Mitt, STFU, please.  Meanwhile, Congress is said to have reached agreement on a $900 billion COVID-19 relief package for the American people which is purportedly close to where they started 2-3 months ago.  What is apparent is that neither House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi or Senate Minority Leader “Crying Chuck” Schumer wanted to help the American people.  Shame on them.   U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin says ‘$600 stimulus checks could be going out next week.’  Elsewhere, Congress agrees on a matter of significant importance: removing the statue of General Robert E. Lee from Statuary Hall.  Wow.  Our lives will be changed for the better!
  61. 2020 Monday B: The Trump administration cuts the size of the Arctic lands available to be auctioned off for natural gas development.   Elsewhere, Pope Francis promises Vatican employees that no one will lose his or her job due to the Chi-Com Bat Flu.   Speaking of the ‘Pope,’ he says- get this- that ‘vaccines made using aborted fetal tissue is ETHICAL.’  If there was ever reason to leave the Catholic Church, this is it.  The vicar of Christ no longer represents the Holy Trinity but has shown his hand as Satan’s minion by his allegiance to the DEEP CHURCH.  Time for the College of Cardinals to topple this Third World POS and to find a European to head the Church.
  62. 2020 Monday C: As Brexit begins to seem like it might actually happen, leftist Britons are scrambling to seek residence in Spain and Portugal.  Speaking of Great Britain, the U.S. says that ‘everything is on the table’ when it comes to enacting a travel ban on the UK due to the increasing cases of a new strain of the Chi-Vi.  People are sick all over Britain and sadly, there are some who are still naïve enough to believe that the Chi-Coms did not create this disease for use as BIOWARFARE against the globe.
  63. 2020 Monday D: Outgoing U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr lays out charges against the Libyan bombmaker whose handiwork brought down the Pan-Am flight over Lockerbie, Scotland, back in 1988.  The AG then says he has ‘no plans’ of appointing a special counsel to investigate Hunter Biden and the Biden Family.  What a disappointment you are, sir.  Meanwhile, a House panel subpoenas HHS and CDC representatives to testify regarding their ‘lackluster response’ to the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Seems like the administration did an excellent job.  
  64. 2020 Monday E: Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms attack President Donald J. Trump over his inference that they were behind the hacks and the spying.  Former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley says there’s ‘no doubt the Chi-Coms were involved.’  Of course, they were, it’s what they do.  Regarding the Chi-Com hacks, the U.S. Treasury Department says there are ‘no signs the communists caused any harm to the Treasury Department.’  Speaking of the CCP, we learn today that BIG TECH is launching an all-out blitz to influence the Biden administration into doing whatever it and their masters in Beijing want.   Proof of this is that the New York Times won’t touch the story of Chi-Com agent, California Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell, the man who attacked President Trump but who was schlepping a Chi-Com intel agent for five-plus years.  Wow.
  65. 2020 Monday F: 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: 77,188,346 confirmed cases, +656,621, 1,699,285, confirmed deaths, +9,360, and 43,522,242 confirmed recoveries (again, this number has been readjusted DOWN from a week ago-something strange is occurring), +342,299.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Xi Jinping Bat Flu pandemic: 18,083,146 confirmed cases, up 283,477 from yesterday’s reporting, 321,518 confirmed deaths, UP 3,019, and 8,000,113 confirmed recoveries, UP 142,452.
  66. 2020 Monday 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: 1,910,120 confirmed cases, 22,820 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 20,291 confirmed cases, 282 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 227,122 confirmed cases, 3,170 confirmed deaths (for some unknown reason, less than last week’s count), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Pennsylvania, currently, they have 569,413 confirmed cases, 14,015 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries which seems to be the way of the world at present  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife have moved there: 374,760 confirmed cases, 3,099 confirmed deaths, and 348,107 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at another nation: Mexico: they have 1,320,545 confirmed cases of the CHI-VI, 118,2020 confirmed deaths and 978,002 confirmed recoveries.

Monday, December 21, 2020, Today in History Blog Post:   

Monday, December 21, 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…


[i] Modern-day Democrats claim this is the beginning of slavery and evil in the founding of America.  We say, “F**k them,” as they are- with the exception of our liberal, Democrat, or progressive members- are full of crap.

[ii] We began presenting the music of the Mothers of Invention and of Frank Zappa beginning on Monday, 21-January-2013 and concluded the presentation on Monday, 13-May-2013.  Please seek them out, we believe you will enjoy the music of this famed man and his band.

[iii] We hope to present the music of this foundational American rock band within the next 5-6 years.  Please stay tuned for further developments.  We thank you; we know you love the Beach Boys as much as we do.

[iv] We hope to promote the music of both the Band and its members sometime in the next 10-15 years.

[v] We promoted the music of Buffalo Springfield beginning on Saturday, 17-November-2012 through Saturday, 24-November-2012.  We hope you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your collection.  You will be glad you did.

[vi] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.

[vii] We shared the music of the Hollies with the world beginning on Monday, 29-August-2016 through Thursday, 03-November-2016.

[viii] We hope to promote the music of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, as well as of each member’s solo careers along with Crazy Horse within the next 5-7 years.  Please remain vigilant for when we do.

[ix] This horrendous atrocity was committed by members of the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam.

[x] Once again, the atrocities committed in Mumbai were committed by members of the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam.  Evildoers.

[xi] Thank you, President Obama, this rule was a long time in coming as passengers kept inside planes on the tarmac due to overcrowding of aircraft at an airport risked going to jail if they tried to give up their seats and get the hell off the airplane.  Still, three hours is a long time to sit immobilized but far better than having to sit 8-12 hours.

[xii] We promoted the music of Iron Butterfly beginning on Saturday, 27-July-2013 through Thursday, 08-August-2013.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your ever-growing collection of rock music.  Nothing one finds today compares with the classic rock of old.  Throw out your Maroon 5 albums and go with the crème de la crème of the 1960s and 1970s.

[xiii] We shared the music of Deep Purple, Ian Gillan, Captain Beyond, Elf, and Rainbow beginning on Tuesday, 20-March-2018 and concluded this massive offering on Sunday, 14-October-2018.  Please seek out the music by all of these phenomenal bands.  All are fabulous.

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!

  56. 2010 Thursday: The Obama administration is fighting to push a Federal Anti-Gun Trafficking Ban through Congress but the National Rifle Association- NRA- is fighting tooth and nail to stop it.   Meanwhile, Veterans for Peace, an anti-war veterans’ group, is holding a protest outside the White House today.  President Barack Hussein Obama did, after all, promise he would ‘end wars.’

  63. 2017 Saturday: The Trump transition team accuses Robert S. Mueller of illegally obtaining campaign emails.  The Mueller investigation is obtaining ‘evidence of collusion between President Donald J. Trump and Vladimir Putin in unlawful ways.’  Since the evidence does not exist, it would suggest that the special counsel is manufacturing his own evidence.
  64. 2018 Sunday: With the threat of a partial government shutdown looming, the White House dug in on its demand for $5 billion to build a border wall as congressional Democrats stood firm against it.  Meanwhile, over increasing scandals, U.S. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke announces he is going to step down from his position.
  65. 2019 Monday: Congressional Democrats continued trying to find their collective balls to go into the House Rules Committee the next day so they could hammer out the rules for the impeachment trial of President Donald J. Trump.    Meanwhile, Democrats running for the nomination of their party are begging DNC Chair Tom Perez to change the rules for inclusion for the January and February debates.  The rules’ demand for polling and donation numbers to meet certain criteria is preventing many of them from being able to participate.   
  66. 2020 Wednesday: Texas wants to become the home of the U.S. Space Force Command.  Next, President Donald J. Trump doubles down on his claims of FRAUD in the 2020 Presidential Election which are becoming clearer and clearer by the day.  He says, “Bad things happened in the 2020 Presidential Election” and must be addressed.  He also told Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY, that it’s ‘too soon to give up on the election’ even as Mitch and his leadership are urging their fellow GOP senators NOT to contest the election in early January.  However, in January 2017, House Democrats interrupted the proceedings no less than ELEVEN times in their bid to stop Trump from becoming the 45th president and to secure the election for Hillary Rodham Clinton.
  67. 2020 Wednesday A:  The American Civil Liberties Union calls for a release of half of ALL inmates in U.S. prisons and jails because of the Chi-Vi threat.  They probably want all illegal aliens released, too.  Let’s deport them ASAP.  Meanwhile, federal prosecutors indict Canadian pervert Peter Nygard, a fashion designer, on multiple charges of sex-trafficking.  Hmmm, seems like we have a junior Jeffrey Epstein here.
  68. 2020 Wednesday B: The U.S. Senate Homeland Security Committee chaired by Ron Johnson, R-WI, and ranking member, Sen. Gary Peters (who was beaten by John James in November but who maintains his seat thanks to rampant voter fraud in his state), D-MI.  Witness Christopher Krebs, recently fired by President Trump still maintains ‘no signs of foreign interference in the election’ but that ‘fraud is a criminal matter.’  He also states that ‘rumor control is extremely important.’   Chairman Ron Johnson says the “GOP is not peddling Russian disinformation’ and tells his colleague Senator Peters ‘to stop lying, that all he does is lie and to stop spreading Russian disinformation, himself.’  Amen.  Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, then asks a question regarding ‘if non-legislators changing election laws without the involvement of state legislators is okay’ which everyone with half-a-brain or more knows is NOT.
  69. 2020 Wednesday C: Regarding the Senate Homeland Security Committee meeting on the rampant voter fraud that occurred in the 2020 Presidential and Senatorial elections, Christopher Krebs says it’s ‘important to use paper ballots so there is a paper trail which would have provided the necessary evidence as to whether there was cheating or there was not.’  Amen to that, too. We also learn that Pennsylvania was among the most corrupt states with more dead people, more illegal aliens, more multiple voters, more made-up voters, and more underage voters than anywhere else in the country.  Send Gov. Wolf to prison. 
  70. 2020 Wednesday D: In the same Senate committee hearings as outlined in the previous two points, Senator James Lankford, R-OK, says back in 2016, ’32-percent of the American people believed that Vladimir Putin and the Russkies interfered in the U.S. Presidential Election to help Donald Trump and to hurt Hillary Rodham Clinton.  We did hearings then so what is wrong with holding hearings now, especially when 75 million plus Americans voted for Donald Trump’ and as Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, says ‘are not going to just go away no matter how much Democrats want them to.’  Amen to that, too.  In 2016, Dems weren’t going to move on whereas NOW, they want everyone to move on and to embrace “Pro-China Joe” Biden and “Kooky Kamala” Harris as our next president and vice president.  F**k them.
  71. 2020 Wednesday E: Senator James Lankford, R-OK, also says that his state as were numerous others done with vote counting on Election Night as the country always has but look in amazement at other states STILL counting votes more than two weeks after Election Day and stating, ‘we don’t know how many ballots are left to be counted.’  Senator Lankford also points out to the Eric system- the Electronic Voter Information Center used by 30 states to monitor if people are voting more than once or in a series of places.  All states should be using this.  Senator Lankford also says that in HIS state, voter fraudsters are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law while in states with rampant voter fraud like Nevada has yet to punish anyone even with 42,000 dead voters having voted.  The Trump campaign witness and adviser Jesse Binall concurred that NO one has faced prosecution in the Silver State.
  72. 2020 Wednesday F: Regarding the election, Wisconsin Election Commission Director Meagan Wolfe calls for legislation for election reform in her corrupt state due to widespread irregularities across her state.  Meanwhile, President Trump wants a special counsel appointed to investigate Hunter Biden and perhaps his father.  Elsewhere, we learn that the Senate races in Georgia are tied- David Perdue v. Jon Ossoff and Kelly Loeffler v. Islamist ‘Reverend’ Raphael Warnock.  Mitch: we would be inclined to donate more cash to help the GOP candidates if you would stand with President Trump, you RINO POS.  Meanwhile, Cardinal Raymond Leo Burke says that ‘the Democrats are seeking a GREAT RESET in the United States with which to force Marxism down our throats.
  73. 2020 Wednesday G: National security adviser Robert O’Brien cuts his European trip short to rush home to deal with the ongoing Russian-Chi-Com-and-other foreign intel agents hacking into the U.S. federal government as well as taking down YouTube, Gmail, and Google.  Meanwhile, White House counsel urged President Trump not to fire POS FBI Director Christopher Wray.   Finally, Ken Starr will square off with Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg in a Texas court regarding Facebook’s interference in the 2020 Elections and the vast amounts of cash Zuckerberg dropped on various entities in the election ostensibly to help them in their efforts to (1) steal the elections and (2) to censor information favorable to President Trump and the GOP.  Send this punk to prison.  The Amistad Project is the source of the report on Zuckerberg.  Speaking of punks, it’s official, “Pro-China Joe” Biden names Mayor Pete Buttigieg to be his secretary of Transportation.   Princess, uh, Mayor Pete will become the first openly gay person to head a Cabinet position.
  74. 2020 Wednesday H: In other news, scientists suggest that kangaroos can learn to communicate with human beings.  We believe every creature on Earth is evolving but evolution is extremely slow, so no one truly notices it.  Next, Major-League Baseball finally does something it should have done decades ago and that is to elevate the Negro Leagues to MLB status so all records and information will become a part of MLB history.  God bless you!  Elsewhere, feel-good liberal Dodge City, Kansas, Mayor Joyce Warshaw resigns her post after claiming she has received ‘so much email and mail threatening her life over her support of a comprehensive mask mandate.’  Wah, wah, wah, STFU.   In other news, the dictator of Turkey- Tayyip Recep Erdogan calls sanctions emplaced upon his country because it bought a Russian defense system to be an ‘attack on his nation.’  Dude, you need to shut up and GO.
  75. 2020 Wednesday I: Internal documents released on the fly from the World Health Organization, the corrupt organization in the pocket of wannabe global dictator Xi Jinping, show that their distribution plan for release of the Wuhan Virus vaccine is doomed to fail.  Elsewhere, that ignoramus Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Sandy Cortez, aka Baby Evita, aka AOC, aka “The Fly,” says ‘both Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer need to go.  NOW.’
  76. 2020 Wednesday J: Here are the latest stats for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, straight out of Wuhan, China: 74,087,090 confirmed cases, UP by 1,865,456 cases, 1,646,687 confirmed deaths, UP by 34,673 deaths, and 41,893,773 confirmed recoveries, DOWN by 5,324,462 recoveries from yesterday’s figures- curious.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 16,961,262 confirmed cases, UP by 273,102 new cases, 308,762 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,280 new deaths, and 7,688,057 confirmed recoveries, UP by 203,304 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt POSs).  Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 360,630 confirmed cases, 3,014 confirmed deaths, and 338,784 confirmed recoveries.

Ige, you Democrat hack.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 212,488 confirmed cases, 3,084 confirmed deaths, but like California, the gorilla-faced governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, Florida: 1,155,355 confirmed number of cases, 20,480 confirmed deaths, and sadly, no mention of the confirmed number of recoveries- thank you.   Speaking of the Yellow Fever 2020, a healthcare worker in Alaska was given the vaccine injection and immediately began having harsh reactions to the drug and had to be placed into the hospital.
  78. 2020 Wednesday L:  2020 Wednesday E: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,154.54, DOWN 44.77 points (-0.15%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,658.19, UP 63.13 points (+0.50%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,701.17, UP 6.55 points (+0.18%).  The price of GOLD is $1,867.30 per troy oz., +8.20 (+0.24%) while the price of SILVER is $25.44 per troy ounce, +0.393 (+1.57%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,040.00 per troy oz, +4.60 (+0.44%) while the price of COPPER is $3.56 per pound, +0.005 (+0.14%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,348.20 per troy oz, +24.20 (+1.04%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $47.86 per barrel, +0.04 (+0.08%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.53 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.86.

  80. 2020 Wednesday N: Final news for the night: Fosun Pharma seeks to buy 100 million does of Biontech’s Chi-Vi vaccine for shipment to mainland communist China.   Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Senator Tom Cotton, R-Arkansas, is pushing a bill designed to punish Beijing for their annual $1 billion industry of forced organ harvesting from prisoners and members of religious groups.  No wonder the communists in Beijing HATE Senator Cotton.  The Stop Force Organs Harvesting Act would put the Chinese Communist Party thugs on notice that they must stop this egregious human rights abuse.  Elsewhere, Vice President Mike Pence will take the Beijing Bat Flu vaccine on live TV at the White House.  Particulars to come.  Finally, a federal court tells Ohio they cannot block trannys seeking to change their birth certificates to reflect their ‘identities.’
  81. 2020 Wednesday O:  Friends, this is where we were at one year ago today: we know the Chi-Coms, their lackeys Canada, Russia, Iran, Venezuela, Cuba, and other assorted Third World s-hole countries- as well as their stooges in the Democratic Party- are up to no-good.  Stick around to discover crimes they’ve committed today…         
  82. 2021 Thursday: Everyone knows the drill…stick around to discover the truth along with all of us- you will be glad you did.

Always working away, Fairport Convention knocked out their next studio album- “The Wood and the Wire”- on November 15, 1999.  Once again, the band features a revamped lineup of sorts: Simon Nichol (guitars, vocals, dulcimers, and piano), Ric Sanders (fiddle), Dave Pegg (bass, mandolins, guitars, and vocals), Chris Leslie (violins, multiple stringed instruments, and vocals), and Gerry Conway (drums and percussion).  No matter who exactly is in the lineup, the band always delivers the goods, and this album demonstrates it.  We hope you will investigate this album to your and if you find it as wonderful as we do, well, seek it out wherever you shop for the best in rock music.  You will enjoy it.

ENDNOTES:

[i] We promoted the music of Big Brother and the Holding Company, beginning on Monday, 18-July-2011 through Tuesday, 26-July-2011.  At the time, we were not farsighted enough to offer the music of Janis Joplin but hope to do so at some point in the near future when we return to promoting the music of American rock bands.

[ii] We shared the music of the Hollies with the world beginning on Monday, 29-August-2016 through Thursday, 03-November-2016.  We encourage everyone to check out the music of this well-known British Invasion band. 

[iii] We look forward to sharing the music of this famed, “Little Ol’ Band from Texas,” ZZ Top sometime in the next decade. 

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

346. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, DECEMBER 12, 2021

2020 Saturday D: The criminal government in Tehran, Iran, executed a journalist today, Rouhollah Zam, condemned of a BS crime known as ‘corruption on earth,’ a charge they use when they haven’t a real crime with which to condemn their victims, especially if they say things unflattering to their s-hole government. He was hung which means they brought out the construction crane, put the noose around his neck, and then hoisted him up, barbaric savages that they are.

Trump to get the process underway.
  65. 2020 Saturday:  We learned early this morning that Oracle is abandoning Silicon Valley and relocating to Austin, Texas, joining the ranks of companies and citizens leaving the dying state in drove.  Meanwhile, in Washington, D.C., another humongous March for Trump Bus Tour is underway with hundreds of thousands of American patriots in attendance.  “Stop the steal” is the mantra of the day.   Elsewhere, the Food and Drug Administration greenlights the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for emergency use.  The CDC is monitoring patients and vaccine reports after reports of Bell’s palsy befalling some recipients.  Finally, a car plowed through a group of protesters in Manhattan, New York.
  66. 2020 Saturday A: After SCOTUS demonstrated its true colors yesterday, President Donald J. Trump vows he will carry on his fight for free and fair elections.  The Arizona GOP requests a Supreme Court appeal key deadlines in its fight against voter fraud while in Texas, the GOP says SCOTUS’ refusal to hear case sets an extremely dangerous precedent.   Meanwhile, in a sign of the times with a possible change in presidential administrations, a boat bearing about a dozen illegal aliens came ashore in San Diego, California, and once on shore took off running like bats out of hell.  Find them, ICE, and deport them.   Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump attends his third Army-Navy football game.  
  67. 2020 Saturday B: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox, communist China’s gift to the world and a boon for Democrats who want to exercise their fascist skills in locking down people’s lives like California’s duplicitous closet pansy Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 71,541,897 confirmed cases, +1,516,362, 1,602,500, confirmed deaths, +12,177, and 45,680,439 confirmed recoveries, +616,249.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 16,194,260 confirmed cases, UP 280,850 from yesterday’s reporting, 301,045 confirmed deaths, UP 5,196, and 7,421,827 confirmed recoveries, UP 145,269.
  68. 2020 Saturday C: 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: 1,528,177 confirmed cases, 20,854 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 19,315 confirmed cases, 269 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 204,484 confirmed cases, 3,097 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other locale: District of Columbia. Currently, they have 24,357 confirmed cases, 709 confirmed deaths, and 17,091 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Mayor Bowser.  Let’s look at Israel’s stats now that Mo is living there: 355,786 confirmed cases, 2,983 confirmed deaths, and 335,243 confirmed recoveries.  In other Chi-Vi news, we learn that Charlie Pride, famed Country & Western singer, has died at age 86 from a Wuhan Virus infection.  Thank you, communist China, thank you.
  69. 2020 Saturday D: The criminal government in Tehran, Iran, executed a journalist today, Rouhollah Zam, condemned of a BS crime known as ‘corruption on earth,’ a charge they use when they haven’t a real crime with which to condemn their victims, especially if they say things unflattering to their s-hole government.  He was hung which means they brought out the construction crane, put the noose around his neck, and then hoisted him up, barbaric savages that they are.   Elsewhere, Microsoft online news shares a story from the Wrap (some BS media site) that does what leftwing media does best and that is slandering their targets.  The story claims that Newsmax host Greg Kelly repeatedly ‘shrieks it’s not over’ regarding President Donald J. Trump’s chances at pulling victory from the jaws of defeat.  They do the same thing to Trump, trying to mischaracterize their targets words by making them sound unhinged or crazy like them.  We watch Greg Kelly, and he NEVER has shrieked anything; he merely says it and the left tarnishes him for having done so.  PAY NO ATTENTION TO LEFT-WING NEWS SOURCES.  Finally, Israel and Bhutan announced the establishment of full diplomatic relations on this date.
  70. 2020 Saturday E: In other Chi-Com news, we learn that Hong Kong has denied bail to imprisoned media mogul and Hong Kong freedom activist Jimmy Lai whom the MSS arrested earlier in the year for supposed ‘subversive crimes’ under the new National Security Law that allows the thugs in Beijing to crack down and imprison people defending democracy in the former British Crown Colony.   Let him out!  Meanwhile, U.S. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy told Judge Janine on her show tonight that Chi-Com pawn Congressman Eric “Farther in Chief” Swalwell is facing an ethics investigation for having been involved with a Chi-Com intelligence agent, Christine Fang or Fang-Fang as she is known.  We also learned earlier this week that the congressman’s father and brother just broke off social media ties with the honeypot spy this flipping week.  Swalwell, you need to go to prison.
  71. 2020 Saturday F:  Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3516 with a jackpot of $14 million up for the grabbing: 01, 13, 24, 26, 39, and Mega 17.  Out of 91,240 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person with five numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $32,740.  Next, here are the results of the Powerball Draw #802 with a massive jackpot up for grabs: 17, 54, 56, 63, 69, and Powerball 20.  Out of 83,797 winning tickets, the highest winner were two people who had four numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $23,603.       
  72. 2020 Saturday G: President Donald J. Trump attended his third Army-Navy Game (West Point won 15-0), conducted the coin toss to get the game going, and then received a thunderous applause and chants of “USA!  USA!  USA!” from the midshipmen and military cadets- as well as other military personnel on hand.  It was amazing and it demonstrated that even after attempts by the Democrats to slash his ties to the military, the U.S. military junior officers and personnel love the 45th president and will continue loving him as he loves them.  In other positive stories, double amputee USMC veteran Zachary Briseno- a man who lost both legs to an Iranian-made roadside bomb in Iraq- became the second double amputee to become a police officer in the United States as he joined the Ft. Worth, Texas, police department.  Congratulations, Officer Briseno!
