  61. 2019 Sunday: At historically black Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia, billionaire Robert F. Smith announces he will pay off the college loans of nearly 400 graduating seniors, urging them to pay their good luck forward.  God bless him.  Meanwhile 8 of 9 planets align on the same side of the Sun on this date.
  62. 2020 Tuesday: Neil Cavuto is still expressing outrage as are numerous other liberal talking heads and pundits due to him being unashamed that he is taking hydroxychloroquine sulfate as a preventative against the Chinese Virus.  Speaking of COVID-19, here are the stats for the world: 4,893,195 number of confirmed cases, 322,861 confirmed deaths, but 1,686,487 confirmed recoveries which is good.   In the United States, we have 1,558,631 confirmed cases, 92,258 confirmed deaths, but 297,153 confirmed recoveries which again is great.  In the three states where we have chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, we begin with California first: 81,795 number of confirmed cases, 3,334 confirmed deaths, but 0 confirmed recoveries since Gov. Gavin Newsom won’t provide them.  Next, here’s Hawaii: 641 number of confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, but 573 confirmed recoveries; thank you, Gov. Ige.  Finally, we have Washington state where they have a crackpot governor talking about ‘conspiracies from the planet Pluto,’ here are the stats: 18,811 number of confirmed cases, 1,031 confirmed deaths, but 0 confirmed recoveries due to the state not reporting them.  Meanwhile, communist China continues misreporting the statistics but sources within Hong Kong continue getting the truth out and the numbers are 10-15-percent higher than what Beijing is reporting.  Go figure.  
  63. 2021 Wednesday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 165,457,298 confirmed cases, +571,756, 3,429,560  confirmed deaths, +11,341 and 145,664,210 confirmed recoveries, +65,660.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,795,693 confirmed cases, UP 23,533 from yesterday’s reporting, 601,879 confirmed deaths, UP 565,[viii] and 27,295,523 confirmed recoveries, UP 48,317.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ix]   
  64. 2021 Wednesday A: NOTE: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, There Have Been 285,552 Chi-Vi Deaths In The United States- President Biden, 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 174,057 deaths.

  66. 2021 Wednesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,221 confirmed cases, 6,395 confirmed deaths, and 832,232 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Cuba, a communist hellhole that liberal Americans for some unexplainable reason seem to worship and love: 128,094 cases of the virus, 834 confirmed deaths and 120,282 confirmed recoveries.[xi]     
  67. 2021 Wednesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,896.04, DOWN 164.62 points (-0.48%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,299.74, DOWN 3.90 points (-0.029%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,115.68, DOWN 12.15 points (-0.29%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $63.38 per barrel, +0.02 (+0.03%).  The price of GOLD is $1,869.20 per troy oz., -12.60 (-0.65%) while the price of SILVER is $27.79 per troy ounce, -0.23 (-0.84%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,194.50 per troy oz, -7.10 (-0.59%) while the price of COPPER is $4.59 per pound, -0.00 (-0.04%).[xii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,869.29 per troy oz, -33.59 (-1.16%).[xiii] The price of RHODIUM is $28,200.00 per troy oz., -200.00 (-0.70%).[xiv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000025.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.43 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.94.     In Venezuelan Bolivar, one greenback equals 248,487.64 (that’s socialism for you) and in Vietnamese Dong, a buck equals 23,045.00 and in West African CFA Franc, one dollar equals 532.50 of theirs.[xv]     
  68. 2021 Wednesday 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- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.144 per gallon, $2.887 in Florida, $3.886 in Hawaii, and $3.547 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Wisconsin: $2.877.  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- Kyrgyzstan: $2.313 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,305,687,729,011 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.  
  69. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– today is the 58th day in which the appointed ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris has FAILED to visit the southern border.  What’s up with that?   Speaking of the border calamity, One America News reports today’s stats regarding JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE- as of today, the cost of caring for illegal aliens is $519,152,882.  The number of illegals that have crossed into the United States this year alone sits at 1,555,337 invaders whom the Biden regime is dumping across the United States.  One America News reports the number of illegals in the United States is around 35,555,336 which is incredible, but we have long said that the numbers of illegal alien invaders is between 35-50 million which is not flipping good.  Round ‘em up and begin deporting them.  NOW.  Apparently, along with the more than a million who have flooded into the United States this year, the Biden regime is going to allow in an additional 260 ‘vulnerable illegal aliens,’ i.e., gays, trannys, and other victimized groups, into the U.S. every day where the taxpayers will pay their way.
  70. 2021 Wednesday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– Colombian leaders confirm the death of prominent FARC leader Jesus Santrich- killed in Venezuela.  Venezuelan dictator (and former bus driver) Nicolas Maduro says he knows nothing about it.   In other overseas-related news, U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi calls for a ‘diplomatic boycott of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics.’  What is wrong, Mumbles?  Chi-Coms not dumping enough cash in your bank accounts. 
  71. 2021 Wednesday H: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– After Maricopa County, Arizona, Democrat election officials did their best to delete as much data related to the 2020 Elections, election auditors have announced they have recovered the deleted databases. 
  72. 2021 Wednesday I: Joe Biden News– A mushed-mouth Joe Biden spoke to U.S. Coast Guard grads and after telling them that ‘COVID-19 has prepared you to meet any challenge,’ he lit them up for not being overly enthusiastic about his incredibly low-key, incoherent speech and called them ‘dull,’ forcing them to applaud his stumbling, bumbling speech.  It was incredibly embarrassing to be sure.   Meanwhile, when a news reporter asked Joe Biden about “Kooky Kamala” Harris’ attack on him during the primary debates of last year over his record on busing, the slow-witted moron who resides in the White House said of her comments that her comments were ‘f**king bulls**t.”  (Note- increasing belligerence and anger is yet another sign of mental decline).
  73. 2021 Wednesday J: Joe Biden Regime News I- the regime announces it is going to release 3 terrorists languishing in Gitmo.  (Note- why not try the SOBs and then execute them?).  Next, the regime slanders the impressive, peace-bringing Abraham Accords, basically labeling them as fecal matter.  Wow.  Next, the regime is offering little support to Israel.  It would appear that she will have to fight on in solitude against Hamas and Hezbollah trash seeking to destroy her.  Moving on, Joe Biden’s court-packing commission is meeting soon with answers as to how the Democrats can continue trashing the federal court system.  (Note- a McLaughlin poll says that 64-percent of Americans believe Joe Biden won’t be running in 2024 and that President Donald J. Trump will decimate “Kooky Kamala” Harris should this quack somehow become the Democratic Party’s sacrificial 2024 lamb).
  74. 2021 Wednesday K: Joe Biden Regime News II– The BIG Joe Biden regime news of the day is that the regime is lifting all sanctions on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline running beneath the Baltic Sea from Russia to Germany.  This will bring cheap Russian natural gas to Europe.  What could be wrong with that?  Well, it provides the Putin regime loads of high-paying jobs while increasing his regime’s power and reach across all non-Russia Europe, something President Donald J. Trump fought against, and which Joe Biden has now overturned- and they claim the 45th president was a stooge of the Russians for four long years.  Wow.  What could be wrong with the Russians supplying the main source of energy to Europe?  Why have NATO?  Add to that Joe Biden shutting down the Keystone XL Pipeline on Day 1 and the Colonial Pipeline suffering a Russian hacking attack.  Again, WTF?  Yet, all we hear are crickets…
  75. 2021 Wednesday L: Political News I– The GOP is expected to release their ‘counteroffer’ to Joe Biden’s multi-trillion-dollar 2022 Budget soon.  We await it with bated breath.  Next, Rep. Gus Bilirakis, R-FL 12th congressional district, ripped Health and Human Services Secretary (and California’s shame) Xavier Becerra a new one over the secretary’s stance on ‘partial birth abortion.’  Secretary Becerra sidestepped ‘partial birth abortion’ by mumbling about no actual law prohibiting the barbaric practice.  Ah, one must love the Pro-Death Movement.  Meanwhile, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, RINO-GA, says he is running for re-election in 2022.  Loser.  Elsewhere, Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom released his 2019 tax returns.  Big whoop.
  76. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News II– Senator Tommy Tuberville, R-AL, seeks to codify into law what President Donald J. Trump sought to do back in 2017 and that is to keep U.S. soldiers, sailors, Marines, airmen-and-women, Coast Guard, and other military retirement funds out of communist China.  Back in 2017, the 45th president discovered that the five-member panel that manages military personnel retirement funds were going to invest the money in Chi-Com companies which means that money ALWAYS manages to find its way into Chi-Com military corporations.  That is insane, as insane as allowing the Chinese Communist Party to manufacture the pharmaceuticals the American people rely upon to protect their health.  We hope you succeed in this valiant effort, Senator Tuberville.
  77. 2021 Wednesday N: Political News III– The U.S. Department of Justice is creating a task force to combat Chi-Vi fraud in the United States and around the world wherever it may be connected to the U.S.  Next, President Donald J. Trump is encouraging lawmakers to vote against the proposed 01-06-2021 Capitol Hill Riots, aka the largest false flag operation in the history of American politics, ‘commission’ to investigate the events surrounding that day.  The Democrats do not want to investigate Antifa, Black Lives Matter, or any other domestic terrorist group, just the events of January 06, 2021, which means they want to investigate President Trump yet again, hoping against hope, they can somehow tar and feather him as some sort of Osama bin Laden.  Later in the day, the House voted to establish the commission with 35 Republicans[xix] joining the Democrats.   Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, hoped that Republicans would not vote ‘aye’ on this garbage and yet they did.  Sad, extremely sad.
  78. 2021 Wednesday O: Political News IV– A U.S. Army chaplain found himself reprimanded for being critical of the NEW U.S. Army’s ‘tranny policy.’  This occurred back on May 12 when Chaplain Major Andrew Calvert commented on his personal social media page where he expressed his religious views and mentioned his support for the ban on trannys serving in the U.S. military.  Once again, a conservative thinker is smacked down for sharing his or her personal views.  What a load of crap.   Next, despite what Pope Francis has ordered, U.S. bishops are going to begin debating Joe Biden receiving/not receiving communion over his Pro-Death policies.  We hope they excommunicate the old bastard.   He certainly is NO Catholic.  Elsewhere, ultra-left, Soros-funded hack Attorney General Leticia James says that investigation into President Donald J. Trump is now a ‘criminal matter.’[xx]  Soros’ ankle-biting dog strikes again.  Finally, attorney Mark McCloskey, R-MO, announced that he is running for U.S. Senate in Rush Limbaugh’s home state.
  79. 2021 Wednesday P: Political News V– In the city controlled by Mayor Lori “The Loser” Lightfoot, DS-Chicago, so far this year there have been 1,200 shootings.  Oh- she also will no longer permit white people to interview her.  Racist?  Of course, but Democrats claim it’s somehow not.  Go figure.  In the Keystone State, businessman Lou Barletta is running to replace the POS they have for governor now, the extremely corrupt Tom Wolf.  We hope he clobbers him.  Elsewhere, Senator John Barrasso, R-WY, is pressing the Joe Biden regime over its use of encrypted communications so as to avoid any type of oversight.  This is akin to Hillary Rodham Clinton having a private server next door to her basement crapper.  Can you imagine what would be said if President Donald J.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by the Beach Boys was filler of sorts what with it being an album of covers done with acoustic instruments and vocals.  “Beach Boys Party” came out on November 08, 1965 and was received well even though the times they were a-changing all-right.  The lineup features Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals and saxophones), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), and Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), and Bruce Johnston (vocals and bass).  Brian Wilson had by this time suffered his first mental breakdown due to the constant stress of being forced by his family members to write hit songs and commercial albums as well as nonstop touring and friction with his abusive father Murray.  He also was experimenting with the popular drugs of the time so he could raise the level of his songwriting which was to come.  Great album for an increasingly contentious time in the history of the world which is why we encourage everyone to seek it out and enjoy.  You will be glad you did.

[i] We promoted the music of the Who and of its individual band members beginning on Monday, 03-August-2015 through Sunday, 29-November-2015.  We hope you will seek out the music of this veteran British band as well as of Pete Townsend, John Entwistle, Keith Moon, and Roger Daltrey.  We know you will enjoy them.

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

[iii] Not sure as to when we will be promoting the music of Curved Air but when we do, you will be among the first to know.

[iv] We are not sure when AC/DC will be in the works, but you bet they will be at some point, possibly in 2027-2028.

[v] We should have promoted the music of Eric Clapton when we did the music of both Cream and the Yardbirds, but we failed to do so.  We hope to do it extremely soon so please remain vigilant for the day we do.  We thank you.

[vi] We hope to promote the music of the Village People in the not-too-distant future.  Don’t want anyone calling us homophobic. 

[vii] Not sure when we will do the music of Freddie and the Dreamers but one day, we most certainly will so continue reading our political site until we do.

Trump are here as are others whom we do not know.  Some are curious as to WHY Mariannette Miller-Meeks of Iowa would vote to establish this bogus commission after the Democrats tried to strip her of her victory.  WTF?

[xx] President Trump says this is yet another political witch hunt.

130. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, MAY 10, 2022

This will be the greatest clash of armor and tactical aircraft the world has ever seen.

  74. 2020 Sunday: COVID-19 continues causing problems for the nations of the world what with 4,097,158 confirmed cases, 282,495 confirmed deaths, and 1,402,882 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 1,362,715 confirmed cases, 80,562 confirmed deaths, and 208,344 confirmed recoveries which is good, the recoveries that is.  Breaking down the three states in which the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors, California comes first.  In the Golden State, there are 66,773 confirmed cases and 2,745 confirmed deaths but no mention of recoveries.  In Hawaii, we have 732 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 561 confirmed recoveries.  In Washington state, there are 16,891 confirmed cases and 931 confirmed deaths but like California, there is no mention of confirmed recoveries.

  76. 2021 Monday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden became President on January 20, 2021, there have been 280,304 chi-vi deaths in the United States- President Biden, 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, the 46th president is shy 182,305 deaths.      
  77. 2021 Monday 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: 3,759,618 confirmed cases, 62,314 confirmed deaths, and 2,003,503 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,272,102 confirmed cases, 35,785 confirmed deaths, and 1,853,131 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 33,267 confirmed cases, 488 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 416,317 confirmed cases, 5,626 confirmed deaths, and 202,588 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Northern Marianas Islands, yet another place  the Democrats will want to transform into a state after D.C., Puerto Rico, Guam, and Virgin Islands become states: they have 170 confirmed cases, 2 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.[x]   
  78. 2021 Monday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 838,957 confirmed cases, 6,378 confirmed deaths, and 831,620 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Nigeria, a place overrun with far too many ‘princes’ all-in need of U.S. senior citizens’ life savings: 165,419 cases of the virus, 2,065 confirmed deaths and 156,297 confirmed recoveries.[xi]     
  79. 2021 Monday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,742.82, DOWN 34.92 points (-0.10%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,401.86, DOWN 350.38 points (-2.55%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,188.43, DOWN 44.17 points (-1.04%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $64.85 per barrel, -0.07 (-0.011%).  The price of GOLD is $1,835.50 per troy oz., -2.10 (-0.11%) while the price of SILVER is $27.37 per troy ounce, -0.12 (-0.44%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,249.50 per troy oz, -16.00 (-1.26%) while the price of COPPER is $4.70 per pound, -0.02 (-0.45%).[xii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,952.91 per troy oz, +26.40 (+0.90%).[xiii] The price of RHODIUM is $28,900.00 per troy oz., -400.00 (-1.37%).[xiv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.42 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.92.     In Seychellois Rupee, one greenback equals 15.18 and in Sierran Leonean Leone, a buck equals 10,154.00 and in Singapore Dollar, one dollar equals 1.33 of theirs.[xv]       
  80. 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- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.103 per gallon, $2.876 in Florida, $3.810 in Hawaii, and $3.514 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Pennsylvania: $3.088.  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- Sudan: $2.026 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,270,989,160,341 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  81. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Under President Biden’s lack of attention, the border continues being overrun by illegal aliens.  ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris is in her 48th day as the so-called ‘Border Czar’ and has yet to tour the region.   Meanwhile, reporters from various news agencies continue reporting on the nonstop flow of illegal aliens pouring into the country.  One reporter on Fox News Channel witnessed a group of 40 or more Venezuelans walking across the Rio Grande this morning.  Hence why we say the river should be seeded with alligator pups.  Why aren’t local authorities running miles of razor wire along the border under their authority?  Minefields, folks, minefields.
  82. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden Regime News I– Today, we learned that after four months ‘on the job,’ Joe Biden has left dozens of ambassadorships unfilled.  What’s up with that?  Next, President Biden restores ‘tranny health protections’ reversing yet another President Donald J. Trump policy.  In other questionable news, a new AP-NORC Poll says that President Biden’s ‘approval ratings’ are buoyed by his pandemic response.’  WTF?  The commander-in-chief has done flipping nothing to improve the lives of the American people.  Next, supposedly Joe Biden is meeting with GOP leaders at the pivotal point in his ‘deal-making.’  What deal-making?   Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, RINO-KY, says, ‘the GOP is willing to agree to $800 billion on infrastructure but not the $1.3 trillion’ demanded by Joe Biden’s handlers.
  83. 2021 Monday H: Chi-Com News I– New reports are surfacing that suggest the Chi-Coms planned to weaponize bat viruses such as COVID-19 back in 2015 to further their Chi-Com BS agenda.  Screw them.  Next, author Gordon Chang says that the Chi-Coms ‘committed mass murder of Americans using COVID-19 as their weapon.’  In other Chi-Com news, the communists are demanding- we repeat- DEMANDING- the U.N. cancel a hearing on Uighur Muslims.  (Note- the communists don’t want anyone to know about their Nazi-like efforts to liquidate the Uighur Muslims and other religious and ethnic minorities so the Han Chinamen can rule supreme.  F**k them).
  84. 2021 Monday I: Foreign News / Overseas News– Overnight in Israel, 80 people have been injured fighting Israeli authorities.  It’s Muslim celebration time and when they celebrate, they attack Israeli military, law enforcement, and even the citizens.  For the first time in history, Hamas has fired rockets, we repeat- ROCKETS- into Jerusalem, a place the morons claim is SACRED to them.  The Knesset had to evacuate, so great was the danger.  (Note- folks, this is why God gave the world the neutron bomb- like Hamas and the rest of the trash up NOW). Ramadan begins in two days and of course, the Palestinians are going to run amok.  Elsewhere, U.S. Coast Guard assets working in the Straits of Hormuz were forced to fire warning shots at pesky Iranian swift boats trying to harass U.S. assets.  Sink them.  
  85. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– The AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says, ‘there’s no doubt that the United States UNDERCOUNTED COVID-19 deaths.’  He also believes we must continue wearing masks into 2022.   Elsewhere in the world, once the COVID-19 curfews were lifted, people are now hosting and enjoying LARGE PARTIES.   Meanwhile, a new TIPP Poll says that the number of Americans who won’t take the vaccine has now risen to 26-percent.   Next, the FDA approves Pfizer-BioNTech’s Chi-Vi vaccine for use with 12-15-year-olds. In other Chi-Vi news, Wyoming joins the ranks of states to BAN COVID-19 ‘vaccine passports.’  Awesome.  Finally, many Catholic schools are having trouble in the times of COVID-19 keeping their doors open for students.
  86. 2021 Monday K: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– The Arizona 2020 Election Audit is off to a bad start as they cannot get their hands on the routers, the passwords, and other valuable information and tools so they can uncover the truth about the election many believe was STOLEN.  IF the Democrats have NOTHING to hide- then hand the requested stuff over to the investigators.   Meanwhile, Michigan is filing a lawsuit pleading evidence shows that votes in that state for President Donald J. Trump were flipped over to drooling old Joe “I’m a Racist” Biden.  Godspeed. 
  87. 2021 Monday L: Business News– Thanks to the stupidity of the Joe Biden regime, restaurants across the United States- including ours- are suffering due to a hiring crisis.  People make more money to sit at home on their asses than they do at work.  However, senile old Joe Biden did say that ‘if the unemployed don’t take jobs offered to them, they will lose their benefits.’  How does that work, Joe?  Employers aren’t going to people’s homes begging them to go to work.  What crap.  Speaking of the ‘generous unemployment benefits’ (until they run out and the country goes broke), Governor Spencer J. Cox, R-UT, says that the ‘added benefits are a disincentive.’  Amen.   Elsewhere, a California man was arrested for his $5 million PPP scam.  The dimwit spent the money on expensive sports cars.  The dumb ass is going to prison.  SOB.
  88. 2021 Monday M: National Security News– The Colonial oil pipeline shutdown enters its fourth day.  The 1,500-mile-long pipeline runs through 17 states.  Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district put out a tweet in which she said- more or less- that ’17 U.S. national security and intelligence agencies said there was NO interference in the 2020 Elections yet NONE of them had a clue that a pipeline running through 17 states was in danger of being hacked.’[xix]  Elsewhere, new information continues to arise showing that Hunter Biden may have had a close relationship with a Chi-Com female agent in much the same way as the slow-witted so-called ‘farter-in-chief’ Rep. Eric Swalwell, DS-CA 15th congressional district, had with Christine Fang, aka Fang-Fang, an operative of the Ministry of State Security, the MSS, an organization comparable to the KGB.  This woman sent Hunter Biden opposition research for his father’s 2020 presidential run.  Hmmm…
  89. 2021 Monday N: Political News I– Sadly, we learnt today just how compromised U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr was- he fought to keep flawed FBI Director Christopher Wray in his position.  Wow.  Next, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden’s TAX LIE has been exposed by rising inflation.  Speaking of Leader McCarthy, he backs Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, over GOP House Conference Chair Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, someone who can’t move on from January 06, 2021, and who won’t STFU about it.  She must GO.   Speaking of ‘Liz Cheney,’ U.S. Army Colonel Denton Knapp, Retired, is running for the windbag’s seat in 2022.  Elsewhere, Rep. James “Influence” Clyburn, D-SC 6th congressional district, says he is ‘willing to consider police reform without ending qualified immunity for law enforcement officers.’  Hmmm.  We shall see.
  90. 2021 Monday O: Political News II– President Donald J. Trump is endorsing Lt. Governor Dan Patrick, R-TX, for re-election.  Next, after the world learned that Kentucky Derby winner Medina Spirit ‘was doped,’ the 45th president pointed out that crap such as this is emblematic of the way the United States is going.  We agree.  Meanwhile, Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, says that ‘Joe Biden bears full responsibility for the LOW JOBS report of last week.’
  91. 2021 Monday P: Social Media News And Big Tech News– Numerous state attorney generals are seeking to stop Instagram’s ‘children’s accounts’ where the social media app can monitor and influence children’s minds.  We concur.  Later today, the FBI has confirmed that Darkside did indeed hack the Colonial pipeline.
  92. 2021 Monday Q: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Rep. Jerry Carl, R-AL 1st congressional district, told Newsmax that ‘the United States is distracted by WOKE.’  Amen.  Next, NBC is dropping the Golden Globes in 2022 over a diversity snafu. 
  93. 2021 Monday R: Miscellaneous News I– Quarterback Tim Tebow has signed a one-year deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars.  Soon, we will hear sobbing and wailing from fans of communist Colin “The Communist” Kaepernick whom NO ONE still will employ.  Boohoo.   Next, the IOC president called off a trip to Tokyo due to the ‘VID outbreak that just won’t go away there.   Meanwhile, Tucker Carlson broke the news of the DEEP TIES between the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci and his U.S. taxpayer funding of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the birthplace of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  The question he raises is WHY the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci is not the subject of a criminal investigation or why he isn’t sitting in the hot seat before Congress getting his balls grilled off by concerned representatives and senators?  Damned good question.  The fact that the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci’s department helped FUND this debacle means he should be doing challenging time in the slammer NOW.  Is this what the Democrats are willing to do to destroy a highly popular president such as Donald J. Trump?  Shocking.
  94. 2021 Monday S: Whacked-Out News Of The Day– Nonagenarian House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi has been blasted over her inability to distinguish one black baseball player from another.   It has come to light that when the aging speaker afflicted with dementia sent out birthday greetings to famed San Francisco Giants slugger, Willie Mays, for his 90th birthday (May 06, 1931),  she put out a picture of her and another dingbat with Giants player Willie McCovey who died on October 31, 2018.  When a big uproar descended upon her aging back, she had the temerity to blame a staffer for her failure to determine one black baseball legend from another.  Ain’t that how it always goes?  (Note- Nance, you truly should consider retirement and we mean YESTERDAY, not today).
  95. 2022 Tuesday: You know the drill…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The sophomore effort by the Beach Boys- “Surfin’ USA”- came out on March 25, 1963, and featured the same lineup of Brian Wilson (bass, piano, and vocals), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Carl Wilson (lead guitar and vocals), Mike Love (vocals), and David Marks (rhythm guitar and vocals).  This album continued the new group’s rise to the top via tunes such as the title track, “Farmer’s Daughter,” and “Shut Down.”  The Beach Boys were not content to ride the wave with just one genre of music, i.e., surf music, as numerous copycats were jumping aboard the surf train.  They also were delving into their love of hot rods, hot chicks, and wild times in So-Cal.  Hawthorne, California, would never be the same nor would the world.  We hope you will seek this one out and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

[xix] Here is what WE think: like the Deepwater Horizon oil platform in the Gulf of Mexico blew up back in 2010, at the time many of us had our suspicions that the Obama-Biden administration had some foreknowledge of that event and used to shut down offshore oil drilling for years.  They shut down drilling off our coasts but allowed the rigs to relocate off the coast of Brazil to drill for oil down there.  Likewise, we think the Russian-backed Darkside hacking group shut this extremely important pipeline so as (1) to cut the amount of oil in the country; (2) to drive up the costs of oil and oil-based products; and (3) to help hasten the bullshit Green New Deal through to being.  Mark our words- Olaf Bologolo. 

113. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, APRIL 23, 2022

2021 Friday F: JOE BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE NEWS I- Senators John Cornyn, R-TX, and Kyrsten Sinema, D-AZ, along with members of the House, presented the bicameral Bipartisan Border Solutions Act with which to tackle the ongoing BORDER CRISIS CAUSED BY THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION’S INEPTITUDE would create- if passed- four regional border processing facilities so the Biden Regime would not be dumping illegal aliens into every neighborhood in every state as the regime is doing now.

  61. 2008 Wednesday: After U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said yesterday that during Jimmy Carter’s time as president, he was advised ‘NOT to have direct talks with the Islamic terrorist group Hamas,’ the failed president appears before news reporters and claims, “NOT true.”  This idiot would have talked with anyone, even those who hate both the United States and Israel.
  62. 2009 Thursday: The International Monetary Fund says it believes economic recovery will commence sometime in the next year.   Elsewhere, the Iraqi government believes that since President George W. Bush invaded their country in 2003, at least 110,000 of their citizens have been slain in the unnecessary war.  How sad.   Add to that the fact today, two suicide attacks, one in Baghdad and the other near Baquba, claim the lives of 87 people who weren’t yet ready to commune with Allah but went anyway.  
  63. 2010 Friday: As the U.S. and the United Nations place demands atop the Jewish state, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu brushes off demands that it refrain from building new housing in its capital city of Jerusalem.  Meanwhile, the U.N. also is bitching that the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip is preventing the global body from ‘educating the poor little Palestinian tykes.’  Wah, wah, wah.
  64. 2011 Saturday: Chi-Com police stage a raid on a Tibetan monastery in Sichuan killing at least two people and wounding several others.  Ah, religious freedom in a communist hellhole.  Elsewhere, in Syria, while people are staging funerals for loved ones killed in rioting, Syrian government security forces kill another dozen or so mourners.  There will be more funerals for them.

  66. 2013 Tuesday: In France, an amended bill legalizing same-sex (homosexual) marriage is passed, opening the door for Francois Holland to promulgate it.  Meanwhile, after the Chi-Coms float a flotilla of warships near Japan’s Senkaku Islands, Tokyo orders the Chi-Com ambassador to account for the actions of his countrymen.
  67. 2014 Wednesday: Facebook announces first-quarter profits of $642 million, an increase of nearly a factor of 3 over first-quarter profits in 2013, resulting in earnings of 25 cents per share versus the 17 cents per share expected by Wall Street.  Elsewhere, Ukrainian security officials discover that a Russian Orthodox Church in the eastern part of the country is a staging ground for Russian thugs attempting to terrorize that portion of the country.  That sounds like ‘Putin’ to us.  Obama, you must help these people against the Russian bear.  Plain.  Simple.  NOW.
  68. 2015 Thursday: On this date, Loretta Lynch wins confirmation in the U.S. Senate to succeed Eric Holder as the nation’s first attorney general.  She is the first African American female to hold this post.  Elsewhere, in one of the more tragic events in U.S. history, former General and former CIA Director David Petraeus pleads guilty in a federal court of sharing classified information with his biographer and lover.  The reason Petraeus found himself in this mess is because he REFUSED to back the Obama administration’s narrative on Benghazi.  The Bamster had knowledge of the victor of both Iraq and Afghanistan’s misdeeds and saved them, saved them for when he required them and when CIA Director Petraeus did not fall in line with the bogus narrative, word of the wrongdoing suddenly hit the news cycle. 
  69. 2016 Saturday: In what seems to be an annual thing, North Korea tells the United States that “IF you suspend military exercises with South Korea, maybe we’ll talk about nuclear disarmament.”  Elsewhere, German citizens in the city of Hanover are in the streets, protesting against President Barack Obama’s and the European Union’s proposed agreement, the Transatlantic Trade and Partnership deal, a deal akin to the Transpacific Partnership, which would tie the U.S. in with the Europeans.  However, the Germans aren’t having any of it and claim that if this ‘Obama deal’ becomes reality, jobs will be lost, wages will fall, environmental protections damaged, they are having none of it.
  70. 2017 Sunday: The North Korean news agency announces they scooped up an American citizen, Kim Sang-Duk, aka Tony Kim, as he sought to leave the country.  The bonehead was teaching classes at Pyongyang University, and we guess the North Koreans decided they wanted him to continue teaching longer than the man planned.  Yikes.   
  71. 2018 Monday: In North Korea, a major mishap occurs as a bus carrying a group of visiting Chi-Com tourists plunges off a highway in North Hwanghae, killing at least 32 of the visiting guests and four North Koreans.  Several others are injured and trucked off to an infirmary for treatment.  What the hell are the Chi-Coms doing visiting North Korea when they could have gone to Tibet or Xinjiang Province where they could tour the Muslim concentration camps? 
  72. 2019 Tuesday: In Myanmar, at least 52 jade miners die in a mudslide.  Meanwhile, in Malawi, the World Health Organization begins inoculating young people with the world’s first malaria vaccine.  The vaccine provides only partial protection against the killer tropical disease, but any protection is better than NO protection.  Elsewhere, ISIS figuratively thumps its chest and takes credit for the Easter Sunday bombings in Sri Lanka this past weekend.  Time to irradiate these murderous thugs.  
  73. 2020 Thursday:  The COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis, communist China’s ‘gift to the world’ continues taking lives, destroying economies, and being an over all pain in the ass for the entire planet.  Total confirmed cases for the globe sit at 2,699,338, confirmed deaths at 188,437, but confirmed recoveries sit at 737,735.  In the United States, there are 886,529 confirmed cases what with 50,162 confirmed deaths but 81,792 confirmed recoveries.  China continues claiming the same numbers what with 88,423 confirmed cases, 4,632 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  What a bunch of lying scum.  After the United States, the next nation with the most cases is Spain, then Italy, Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Turkey, and then communist China.  Meanwhile, the worst news for the United States is that another 4.4 million Americans are unemployed bringing the total number of unemployed Americans to 26 million.  This shocking statistic shows that every single job gained since 2008 is NOW GONE.  Time to exact a heavy price from the PRC by returning to a Two-China Policy recognizing Taiwan- aka Free or Nationalist China- as an equal nation if not the rightful owner of the mainland. 
  74. 2021 Friday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 144,804,485 confirmed cases, +799,197, 3,073,868  confirmed deaths, +11,781, and 83,220,681 confirmed recoveries, +650,193.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 32,717,457 confirmed cases, UP 48,336 from yesterday’s reporting, 584,839 confirmed deaths, UP 10,421, (figures include today’s and yesterday’s)[xii] and 119,056,391 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.[xiii]

  76. 2021 Friday 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: 3,727,713 confirmed cases, 61,261 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,196,502 confirmed cases, 34,759 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,977 confirmed cases, 474 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 392,013 confirmed cases, 5,466 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Idaho, one of the few sane places left in the country: they have 186,081 confirmed cases, 2,029 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[xiv]   
  77. 2021 Friday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 837,892 confirmed cases, 6,346 confirmed deaths, and 829,424 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one non-country- Ethiopia, one of the oldest Christian nations on the globe: 247,989 cases of the virus, 3,496 confirmed deaths and 185,107 confirmed recoveries.[xv]

  79. 2021 Friday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Three States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.981 per gallon, $2.802 in Florida, $3.760 in Hawaii, and $3.401 in Washington state.[xx]    Let’s look at one other location- Maine: $2.822.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,205,305,997,186 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  80. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden Border Catastrophe News I–  Senators John Cornyn, R-TX, and Kyrsten Sinema, D-AZ, along with members of the House, presented the bicameral Bipartisan Border Solutions Act with which to tackle the ongoing BORDER CRISIS CAUSED BY THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION’S INEPTITUDE would create- if passed- four regional border processing facilities so the Biden Regime would not be dumping illegal aliens into every neighborhood in every state as the regime is doing now.   Elsewhere, Congressman Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, said that the illegal alien brats are in OBAMA-BIDEN CAGES and NOT Trump cages.  
  81. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden News I– Drooling Joe Biden found himself for being mocked as at his recent ‘climate summit’ with world leaders via ZOOM, he was the ONLY leader wearing a mask.  Ye gods, Joe, what the hell is wrong with you?  Dimwit.   Anyhow, when Joe concluded his summit, he said with gasping vigor, “We’re gonna do this.”  Big flipping deal, Joe.  Do it to yourself, NOT to us.  Next, totally whacked White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki crowed that ‘Joe Biden will be the first president to create 1,000,000 jobs in his first 100 days.’  Oh, please, stop it, we are laughing as hard as we can already.  Enough, dimwit!  Moving on, Joe Biden told Turkish dictator Recep Tayyip Erdoğan that he is going to call ‘the Armenian massacre a GENOCIDE.’  As it was, the ARMENIAN GENOCIDE the Ottoman Turks carried out against the Christian Armenian minority in their country during World War I.  (Note- it would appear that via this action, Joe is pushing yet another dictatorial nation into the Chi-Com-Russian-Iranian-North Korean-Cuban-Venezuelan camp for good.  Good going there, Joe).
  82. 2021 Friday H: Energy News / Infrastructure News– Much to the horror of liberals, 73-percent of Americans recently polled believe that fossil fuels and natural gas will be with us for decades to come.  Yes, people are interested in renewable energy but until it becomes cost effective and dependable, no one wants this crap.[xxii]  Meanwhile, a new report says that a new proposed gasoline tax is meeting with resistance on BOTH sides of the political aisle.   After the GOP put forth a sensible and less costly infrastructure bill and the left slapped it down, Senator Johnson said it’s all ‘partisanship and not concern for the American people.’  Speaking of infrastructure, Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. Va., says that ‘Joe Biden should concentrate on CONVENTIONAL infrastructure’ and not this WOKE bulls**t.
  83. 2021 Friday I: 2020 Election News / Election Integrity– Early today, Democrats began suing the state of Arizona for permitting the election integrity audit to begin and continue.  Later in the day, a judge called a temporary halt to the procedures for some inexplicable reason, but then permitted it to proceed late in the day.  Next, President Donald J. Trump says that his team is advancing election integrity efforts across the country.  Elsewhere, New Hampshire passed SB 43 with which to carry out a forensic audit of the voting machines.  Citing the Windham Incident, in this one location, 1,143 ballots for Republicans were magically flipped over to Democrats.  These investigations are necessary.    
  84. 2021 Friday J: Foreign News / Overseas News–  Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, RINO, is slamming the inclusion of Iran- perhaps one of the greatest persecutors of women and girls- onto the U.N. Status of Women Commission.  What a load of feculent crap to put a scumbag nation such as Iran on a global body such as the one mentioned above.   Meanwhile, following Tony Perkins- of Family Research Council fame- calling for a boycott on the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics, the Chi-Coms now are trying to cancel him.  Permanently.    Elsewhere, Russian dissident Alexei Navalny is going to end his hunger strike.  Finally, Japan is declaring a state of emergency around Tokyo and three other areas due to surging numbers of COVID-19 cases.
  85. 2021 Friday K: Mass Shooting News / Law Enforcement News–  We learned that late last night in San  Diego, California, a mass shooting left one person dead and at least four injured.  We learned today that NBC once again rejiggered audio from the recent police shooting of Ma’ Khia Bryant who was in the act of stabbing another girl with an eight-inch blade.  As they did with George Zimmerman’s 911 call regarding Trayvon Martin, they edited and fabricated the police call so as to suit their narrative.  Folks, these lying scumbag networks should be fined and/or stripped of their broadcast licenses.   Meanwhile, Nicolas Cruz, the POS who shot up Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida back on February 14, 2018, in what we have dubbed the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre 2018- could go on trial for his life as early as this September.  (Note- we thought he had already copped to a deal).   Elsewhere, an alternate juror in the murder trial of Derek Chauvin says ‘yes, indeed, the mob intimidate us into finding the way we did.’  This verdict is going to get tossed.  Count on it.
  86. 2021 Friday L: Social Media And Stupid People News– After that big POS Los Angeles Lakers dimwit LeBron “Fecal Matter” James put up his most recent tweet about the cop who shot violent teen Ma’ Kia Bryant in Columbus, Ohio, a few days ago, President Donald J. Trump says the turd should ‘focus on his NBA career rather than presiding over the destruction of the National Basketball League.’  LeBron James clearly learned nothing in school and worse, he is down on his knees in front of Xi Jinping doing the nasty for him every day.  C***sucker.  Speaking of LeBron and social media, millions are asking WHY Twitter banned President Donald J. Trump for ‘inciting violence’ while all the while permitting King James to make threats of his own via the platform?  Why?
  87. 2021 Friday M: COVID-19 News / Updates– Today, 33 colleges said that in order to return to classes in the next semester, ALL students will have to show proof they have been vaccinated for the Xi Jinping Bat Virus.  In other Chi-Vi news, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton – with the help of Border Guru Stephen Miller- is suing the Biden administration over its hypocrisy of allowing in hundreds of thousands of illegals without testing them for the ‘VID while demanding states continue the bogus lockdowns the federal government imposes on them (if it can get away with doing it).  Moving on, the U.S. will now permit the use of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccinations to proceed.  However, this comes on the heels of the CDC investigation yet another woman’s death- someone in her fifties- following vaccination for the Chi-Vi.
  88. 2021 Friday N: U.S. Government News– Ahead of their planned pull out, U.S. military is packing up its military hardware in Afghanistan while leaving non-military supplies such as office equipment and appliances behind for the Taliban to put to effective use.   In other truly embarrassing news, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, a true milquetoast if one ever existed, is going to permit U.S. diplomatic missions abroad to fly the LGBTQIA+ flag at the same level with the U.S. flag around the world.  Gee whiz, paint another target on our backs, will you?  Meanwhile, the Biden White House is nominating a ‘conservationist’- Tracy Stone-Manning- to lead the Public Lands Bureau.  Another left-wing loser to be sure.  Finally, SpaceX Dragon capsule blasted off today carrying FOUR American astronauts to the International Space Station.
  89. 2021 Friday O: January 06, 2021, Storming The Capitol / Capitol Hill Riots / False Flag Operations News– It appears that Capitol Hill law enforcement has grown fatigued by lying Democrats’ narratives on what happened on that fateful day when Antifa and Black Lives Matter infiltrated the ranks of Trump supporters and then set in motion the largest FALSE FLAG operation seen in the history of our country.  They are pushing back on recent claims by unnamed Democrats that they showed ‘bias towards the Trump supporters.’  They say they did not.   Elsewhere, Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, is demanding a FULL ACCOUNTING of the death of Capitol Hill Police Officer Brian Sicknick, someone whom we just learned died from natural causes and did not- we repeat, did NOT- have his head bashed in with a fire extinguisher as liberal fake news media and Democrat politicians have long claimed.   Tell us the truth.
  90. 2021 Friday P: State News–  Florida’s Supreme Court stopped a bid with which to legalize marijuana in the Sunshine State.  Good.  We have enough stupid people already.   Elsewhere, in California, Caitlyn Jenner makes it official- she is running for the governor’s job in the recall of Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom and some like that overweight, wig-wearing Joy Behar on “The View” are upset.  She was so upset, she kept using the wrong pronouns when speaking of Ms. Jenner which in the liberal WOKE world is a major faux pas.  Yet, liberals routinely get away with NOT doing as they say everyone else should be doing.  What a farce.  Next, in New York City late last night/early this morning, did their best to deface a monument in Central Park, one built to commemorate the loss of 260 U.S. Navy sailors who were killed when the battleship USS Maine blew up in Havana Harbor, Cuba, on February 15, 1898, the main event that propelled the U.S. into war with Spain.  Police arrested some of the rioters, but we are sure they left the slammer within hours of their arrest.
  91. 2021 Friday Q: Political News I– A new study on elected officials who are the child of elected officials says that Congresswoman Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, and Senator Lisa Murkowski, RINO-AK, vote to the LEFT of their parents when they were in office.  Meanwhile, Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, said he ‘endorses Senators Murkowski and her RINO buddy, Susan Collins, of Maine.   Next, survivors of the Steve Scalise shooting criticize yesterday’s findings by the FBI that James Hodgkinson who shot up the Republican team preparing for the annual House baseball game back on June 14, 2017, did so because he wanted to die by suicide by cop.  This was the FBI finding we received yesterday and all we can say is that FBI Director Christopher Wray is full of fecal matter.
  92. 2021 Friday R: Political News II– Congressman Jason Smith, R-MO 8th congressional district, told Newsmax TV that New York state’s planned payments of $15,000 or more to illegal aliens is ‘unacceptable.’  It’s unacceptable when Americans need help, require salvation from all the Chi-Com Virus lockdowns and restrictions, and liberal left-wing government would rather care for INVADERS than for its own people.   Next, Kimberly Guilfoyle endorses former Missouri Governor Eric Greitens in his U.S. Senate bid.   Moving on, Governor Asa Hutchinson, RINO-AR, vetoed a bill limiting gun restrictions.  He vetoed a bill that LIMITS restrictions on guns in the Natural State, for Christ’s Sake.   The man has demonstrated he is little more than a RINO.
  93. 2021 Friday S: Political News III– Apparently, the President Trump 2020 Campaign left an unpaid view in Albuquerque, New Mexico, with a $211,000 bill, one they are sending to collections.  Sounds like bull crap but then- we know how it is.  Speaking of President Trump, he may be leaving Florida to spend the summer at his New Jersey golf club.   Speaking of Florida, the okays a bill banning abortions based on disability.  Meanwhile, we learn that the United States Postal Service- the USPS, for Christ’s Holy Sake!- is now doing dirty work for the Biden regime by spying on conservative Americans.  Man, they must have amassed a humongous dossier on the AICPENDBLOG.COM by now.  What the hell is the postal service doing behaving like the Gestapo?  Has Stamps.com hurt them this much that they must take on jobs that have NOTHING to do with their daytime jobs?
  94. 2021 Friday T: Miscellaneous News I– After a violent summer last year in \Minneapolis, Minnesota, BLACK-OWNED businesses in the city say the ‘city has abandoned them.’  These poor people watched Black Lives Matter and Antifa and all the hateful white punks (especially the banshees) screaming and rioting, looting, robbing, raping, and burning, and the damned Twin Cities need to do something to get them back on their feet!  What the hell does it take?  Where the hell is Patrice Cullors and all her millions of dollars?  Where is Joe Biden?  HELP these people.  Elsewhere, the Washington Post was slammed earlier today for their disgraceful ‘fact-checking’ on Senator Tim Scott’s ‘from the cotton fields to Congress’ statement awhile back.  Leftists are scumbags, what more can one say?  In other whack-job news, Climate Czar John F. Kerry says that the administration is exploring a BORDER ADJUSTMENT TAX that will slap additional taxes, i.e., tariffs, on nations with weaker climate policies.  Folks, it’s time to make up NICE with Russia or China and seek asylum.  These people are cray-cray.
  95. 2021 Friday U: California Lottery Results– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1653: 04, 28, 29,30, 60, and Mega 25.  Stay tuned for news on the winners… Out of 111,596 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR plus the Mega for a prize of $14,862 apiece.

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 204,268 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 458 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.

56. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 2022

2021 Thursday: Day 37 of the Biden Regime- Congressman James Panetta, D-CA 20th congressional district, and nearly two dozen other House Democrats are pushing decrepit ‘Old Joe’ Biden to give up sole authority to launch nukes should the need to do so arises. The Democrats want a cabal of the president, vice president, and House speaker to make the determination which will delay any response America might have against an impending nuclear attack. Utah Senator Mike Lee, Republican, says this is ‘weird.’

  62. 2019 Monday: Following an assault by Internet trolls and Bots attacking the movie, “Captain Marvel,” the film review site Rotten Tomatoes makes ways as to how fans can rate and comment on movies.  In Vietnam, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un arrives ahead of the upcoming summit between his country and President Donald J. Trump of the United States; he takes in the sights.  Elsewhere, peace talks between the U.S. and the Taliban begin in Qatar.
  63. 2020 Tuesday: President Trump returns from India and announces he has asked for $2.5 billion with which to combat the Coronavirus in the United States.  Senate Minority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says it’s ‘not enough.  Currently, there are 80,000 cases worldwide.  The president should have asked for more.’  Meanwhile, the Democratic 2020 Presidential Debates continue with Michael Bloomberg, Tom Steyer, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Amy Klobuchar, Joe Biden, and Mayor Pete.   
  64. 2020 Wednesday A: Italy is now beset by Chinese Virus cases as the ‘VID has infected nearly 100 more which drives their cases up to 322 what with a death toll of 11- and Italy told its citizens to be “WOKE” and go out and hug Chinese tourists.  Look at what it gets you- sick people and dead folks.  Austria and Croatia report their first cases of coronavirus while in Spain, tourists are being locked up in hotels to prohibit the spread of this disease.  In Iran as the outbreak continues to worsen, the country’s health minister tests positive for this evil disease. Switzerland, Algeria, and other nations around the world are taking the opportunity to seal off air travel to communist China such as Canada.  Meanwhile, the government of Sweden demands the Chi-Com ambassador meet with them over its sentencing of a Swedish bookseller in the PRC to a decade in the slammer for ‘espionage.’
  65. 2021 Thursday: Day 37 of the Biden Regime- Congressman James Panetta, D-CA 20th congressional district, and nearly two dozen other House Democrats are pushing decrepit ‘Old Joe’ Biden to give up sole authority to launch nukes should the need to do so arises.  The Democrats want a cabal of the president, vice president, and House speaker to make the determination which will delay any response America might have against an impending nuclear attack.  Utah Senator Mike Lee, Republican, says this is ‘weird.’  The question is, WHY?  Speaking of this lunacy, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, quipped, “I don’t think Joe Biden’s in charge.’  We concur.
  66. 2021 Thursday A: Newsmax’ White House correspondent John Gizzi says that Neera Tanden- Joe Biden’s pick to head the White House Office of Management and Budget is prepared to withdraw her confirmation seeing as how she’s receiving pushback from both Senate Republicans and Democrats.   Senator Chuck Grassley, R-IA, says he’s not voting for this skank.  Meanwhile, former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm by a vote of 64-35 is confirmed as the next U.S. secretary of Energy.   Confirming this Chi-Com lover gives Beijing and OPEC a big boost in their drive to monopolize energy as well as to collapse U.S. domestic energy production. 
  67. 2021 Thursday B: Conservative lawmakers are asking for a timeline as to when House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi plans on removing the fences around the White House and the Capitol Building as well as when National Guard troops will stop patrolling the streets of Washington, D.C.  The Democrats have transformed parts of the nation’s capital into a Baghdad-style “Green Zone,” of sorts, a heavily-fortified zone.  We believe the troops are there and the fences are up because the Dems KNOW they stole the 2020 Presidential Election.
  68. 2021 Thursday C: Black Lives Matter is launching a ‘survival fund’ of sorts with $3 million as the Democrats in Congress continue dragging out the COVID-19, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, relief fund.   House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi has snarked ‘we feed them, Wolf (Blitzer), we feed them.  Do you feed them?” She was referring to ‘feeding’ the country’s impoverished and its illegal aliens.  We don’t want you to feed us, you senile old witch, we want the economy to reopen.  NOW.
  69. 2021 Thursday D: Tony Perkins has told Newsmax TV the Dems want to force ALL Americans into participating in ABORTIONS by seeking to use taxpayer dollars to fund this abomination not just here in the United States but around the world.  In so doing, it taints the souls of everyone which is not right.  It’s time for Pope Francis to boot Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and every other Catholic-in-Name-Only (CINO) from the church.  Excommunicate them, Pope Francis, excommunicate these murdering scumbags NOW.   In other liberal Democrat Party news, Congressman Sean Maloney, D-NY 18th congressional district, claims Democrats are supportive of socialism and that there are no socialist Democrats.  Good try.  Finally, people are flooding out of the woodwork now to accuse imploding New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, accusing him of sexual abuse, harassment, and mistreatment.  YOU reap what you sow, you POS!
  70. 2021 Thursday E: CPAC plans to honor Rush Limbaugh.  CPAC Chair Matt Schlapp says that President Donald J. Trump knows his speech this upcoming Sunday is an ‘important reset’ for his future in GOP politics.  Meanwhile, the GOP is pushing back on Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s call for a ‘riot commission’ to look into the Antifa- and- Black Lives Matter-led Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021.  Pelosi wants to tar-and-feather Trump supporters with the riot engineered by the Democrats, but we are not going to permit them to get away with this outrageous behavior.
  71. 2021 Thursday F: In upcoming Summer Olympics news, the delayed Olympic torch relay is going to have fans, but NO cheering will be allowed.  Meanwhile, the IOC says that Brisbane, Australia, is the preferred site for the 2032 Summer Olympics. 
  72. 2021 Thursday G: The Justice Department’s top watchdog is investigating claims by a Boeing engineer of being surveilled by the FBI over claims the individual was spying for Beijing.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Joe Biden’s pick to be U.S. Trade Representative- Katherine Tai- says, ‘Chi-Coms both our rivals and our friends.’  Yet another pro-Chi-Com hack in the Biden administration.   In other news, Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker signs into law a bill abolishing cash bail for ALL criminal defendants awaiting trial.  Wow.  Thugs are going to be running amok in the streets of the Windy City.  Oh, wait, thugs are already running amok there. 
  73. 2021 Thursday H: Vice President Kamala Harris is now encouraging black folks to rush out and get the Chi-Vi vaccine.  We recall when YOU said NOT to get the vaccine, you know, before you became VP, so what’s up with the reversal?  Our very own Bea O’Malley has said, ‘any time white liberals tell black folks to do something for their own good, it never works out that way.’  Even though you aren’t white, Kamala, you may as well be seeing as how you lack the street creds of a legit black American.   In other Chi-Vi-related news, France says it’s going to impose ‘localized lockdowns on areas infected with the Chi-Com virus rather than lock down the entire country.’ 
  74. 2021 Thursday I: New York State prosecutors now have President Donald J. Trump’s tax records.  We suspect it’s going to be a DRY well.  Still, it’s going to be fun watching them twist, turn, and wet their pants as they try to get some dirt on President Donald J. Trump.  In other interesting news, five counties in Oregon want to secede from that crackpot state and join with Idaho.  We have a suggestion- how about reviving the drive to create the state of Jefferson?  That concept featured counties in Washington and Oregon east of the Cascades forming their own state with possibly a few of California’s northern counties.  People in these areas are deeply conservative whereas the coastal portions of those states are full of rabid, foaming-at-the-mouth lunatics.  Hell, the county of Kern in California should become its own state.
  75. 2021 Thursday J: This week, there were 737,000 new jobless claims which is down from the previous week.  GDP has been revised up although it equates with what the country had back in 1946 following World War II.  Meanwhile, the FCC auctions off 5G airwaves bringing in $81 billion with ATT and Verizon being the big winners.  Elsewhere, GameStop is making another run today.   In other economic news, Senator John Kennedy, R-LA, blasts the ‘Joe Biden’ COVID-19 Relief Bill as being little more than a socialist wish list, something we contend is a Democratic-Socialist ‘wet dream.’
  76. 2022 Friday: Please, stick around for the latest news of the day…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album Fairport Convention released was the group’s next archival live album, “Evanston 1975- the Illinois Broadcast,” on July 21, 1974.  Recorded at a radio station, this was a glorious effort as it featured Sandy Denny back in the fold.   Besides Ms. Denny on vocals and piano, the band features (1) Dave Swarbrick (vocals, fiddles, mandolins, guitars, and violas) (2) Trevor Lucas (acoustic guitars and vocals) (3) Jerry Donahue (lead guitar and backing vocals) (4) Dave Pegg (vocals, basses, guitars) and (5) Dave Mattacks (drums, percussion, and piano).  Each song is unique, the overall sound ostentatious, and all we can say is that we wholly recommend this album to fans of both the blog and of the band.  We hope you will seek this one out wherever you shop for the absolute best in music and then add it to your growing collection- you will be glad you did- we guarantee it.

  30. 1943 Thursday A: The fight for Novaya Postoyalovka sputters to an end as Italian troops assaulting the village realize they must push on.  Hoped-for reinforcements from other Italian and German armored units are fighting their own battles to push through subzero temperatures as they struggle to break one Red Army encirclement attempt after another.  The dead and dying are left in the snow with a few medical officers as the rest struggle to evade capture.
  31. 1944 Friday: 649 British bombers attack Magdeburg, Germany while 447 German bombers hit London, England.  Elsewhere, on the Eastern Front, Soviets are horrified at the devastation the Germans had caused areas surrounding Leningrad where they had been besieging the city for more than two years.  Whatever the Germans had not trashed while they ringed the city, they trashed on the way out.  However, by the 27th, the siege would be lifted and the Leningraders still alive freed.
  32. 1944 Friday A: South in the Ukraine, the Soviets are trying to figure a way with which, they can divide the forces in Cherkassy pocket.  The ‘witches cauldron’ as the Germans labeled the massive collection of German forces is a tough nut to crack.  If they can penetrate a line between two German divisions- one infantry and one armor- they stand a good chance of bagging and/or destroying more Axis troops than in the Stalingrad and subsequent campaigns of the previous year.

  51. 1999 Thursday: The U.S. Coast Guard intercepted a ship headed for Houston that had more than 9,500 pounds of cocaine aboard, making it one of the largest drug busts in history.  People must have died all over Latin America for this f**k-up.  Elsewhere down in Marksville, Louisiana, Donovan “Razor” Ruddock improved his pro heavyweight boxing record to 32-5-1 with a TKO of opponent, Tony LaRosa, in Round 3 of a 10-round scheduled boxing match.

  55. 2011 Friday: In a referendum based on almost 99-percent of the voters, South Sudan votes for independence from the Sudan.  Meanwhile, South Korean naval assets carry out an assault on a Somali pirate base killing at least 10 of the scum and rescuing their crewmembers who were recently seized by the Islamist scum.   While rescuing the 21 sailors and saving their vessel, they capture another five pirates and take them back to South Korea.

  57. 2014 Tuesday: Venezuelan President Nicholas Maduro announces that the tax on gasoline in the crumbling socialist country is going to go UP from $0.06 per gallon to $0.17 per gallon.  The socialist country’s annual gas subsidy costs $12 billion, which is excessively much in a cash-strapped hellhole cursed with dwindling cash reserves.  Elsewhere, as the Obama administration tries to broker peace talks in the Syrian civil war, the big question is how to get Bashar al-Assad and his family out of the country so peace can occur?  He’s still there years later…
  58. 2015 Wednesday: Online bidding giant, eBay announces it is going to lay off 2,400 employees in advance of its plan to jettison its Pay-Pal unit; the company head expects the split to occur in mid-2015.  Meanwhile, Gazprom- the Russian state-owned national gas giant announces a change in directions for its pipeline to Europe, one that will re-route it under the Black Sea to Turkey and from there to the West.
  59. 2016 Thursday: Al-Shabaab militants go berserk and attack the beach area of Mogadishu murdering at least 20 innocent people and wounding loads of others.  The so-called ‘religion of peace’ strikes yet again.  Elsewhere, a British court of inquiry reports that it’s highly likely Russian despot Vladimir Putin had the FSB murder former Russian intelligence officer Alexander Litvinenko ten years earlier in London.  It’s what the Soviets, er, uh, the Russians do, people.
  60. 2017 Saturday: Longtime keyboardist and vocalist with the funk-rock-soul band, the Ohio Players[viii]–Walter “Junie” Morrison—died on this date.  Meanwhile, on the day following the inauguration of Donald J. Trump, 1 million people rallied at women’s marches in the nation’s capital as well as across the country and the world to send the new president an emphatic message that they would not permit his agenda to go unchallenged.  Over the course of the year, it would become even worse as word began leaking out of a silent coup attempt against the President by members of the Deep State such as numerous criminals within the FBI.  The President has managed to keep fending off these uncalled-for attacks on him, his administration, and his family.
  61. 2018 Sunday: In the AFC Championship Round of the NFL Playoffs, the New England Patriots came back from being down 17-3 to win the AFC title by beating the Jacksonville Jaguars by a final score of 24-20.  In the NFC Championship Round, after putting seven points on the board in the opening drive, the Philadelphia Eagles came back and pounded the Minnesota Vikings by a final score of 38-7.  Meanwhile, as the federal government shutdown gets underway, President Donald J. Trump suggests the U.S. Senate resort to the nuclear option to get the government funded. 
  62. 2019 Monday: Things continue worsening in Afghanistan as the so-called ‘religion of peace’ (so said President George W. Bush) militant Islam strikes again, this time in Afghanistan as the Taliban conduct a major attack in Maidan Wardak Province when they hit the National Directorate of Security Center.  Their attack kills at least 126 security personnel and wounds numerous others.  And the Taliban are ‘negotiating peace.’  This is for what the Lord gave the United States the neutron bomb.  Use it, President Trump, use it.  
  63. 2019 Monday A: Venezuelan military members launch a mutiny against their despotic President Nicolas Maduro, former bus driver and low IQ individual.  The Venezuelan government- with help from their Cuban, Russian, and Chi-Com subsidiaries quash it with the surviving members facing charges of ‘treason.’  Next, the U.S. Senate is planning on using the nuclear option to push more Trump judges through onto the courts.  Finally, California Senator Kamala Harris says she is going to run for the 2020 presidential nomination of the Democratic Party.  She would not last long.[ix]
  64. 2020 Tuesday: This Tuesday, the impeachment trial of President Donald J. Trump commences in the U.S. Senate with House managers Adam Schiff, Jerrold Nadler, Val Demings, Sylvia Garcia, Zoe Lofgren, Hakeem Jeffries, and Jason Crow begin the first of four days of repetition.  It is godawful boring, and Schiff and Nadler need to undergo impeachment themselves.  Anyhow, on this first day of impeachment, the House managers and the Trump defense team hammer out the rules by going through amendment after amendment after amendment starting at 1:00 P.M. until after 1:00 A.M.  Absolutely horrible.   Elsewhere, as communist Chinese health authorities begin running around trying to quell the growing COVID-19 epidemic, the first international cases turn up in Taiwan and in Washington state.  On the heels of the growing spread of the coronavirus, North Korea seals their borders to outsiders.
  65. 2021 Thursday: According to online left-wing behemoth reporting site Politico, Democrats in Washington, D.C. are unprepared for ‘total power.’  We guess we shall see.  Next, a report shows that nominee for secretary for the U.S. Dept. of Labor, Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, is reported to have donated $90,000 to a Biden-linked firm.  Ah, buying office, time-honored way of doing business under Democratic administrations.   In other news, we learn that Kimberly Reed remade the Export-Import Bank so that it created more U.S. jobs and countered Chi-Com moves, moves that now will accelerate under the administration of ‘President Pro-China Joe’ Biden.
  66. 2021 Thursday A: After bidding outgoing President Donald J. Trump ‘good riddance,’ the Chi-Coms slap bans on former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and 27 other former members of the Trump administration.  Meanwhile, Chi-Com-supported Antifa rioters ‘go to town’ in Portland, Oregon, Seattle, Washington, Denver, Colorado, and in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  Riots in the streets, violence, you name it, it’s occurring.  In Portland, Oregon, rioters are protesting ‘President’ Joe Biden and attack the Democratic Party headquarters in that city trying to burn it down.  ‘Pro-China Joe’- if you want unity, you had better start whacking and stacking these sons-of-bitches.  NOW. Conduct a “Night of the Long Knives’ and clean out this scum before others reportedly are going to do it for you.  Meanwhile, a Proud Boys organizer who was in D.C. during the Capitol Hill riots undergoes arrest in Florida.
  67. 2021 Thursday B: Senator Tom Cotton, R-Arkansas, opposes a waiver for U.S. Army General Ret. Lloyd Austin who is ‘President’ Joe Biden’s pick for secretary of Defense.  He gets the waiver anyway.   Speaking of ‘President’ Biden, he is leaving impeachment of former President Donald J. Trump up to the U.S. Senate while House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi promises to hold accountable all (GOP) House members who facilitated the Capitol Hill riots of January 6.  Note to Nance- YOU are the one who told Capitol Hill cops to stand aside and to allow Antifa and BLM to storm the backside of the Capitol.  Hope she gets the message.  House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA, also promises the same.  In other ‘President’ Biden news, he’s keeping FBI Director Chris Wray on the job.  No surprise there.   Meanwhile, Peter Robb who ran National Labor Relations Board for President Donald J. Trump is FIRED by ‘President’ Joe Biden after being asked to resign.  Finally, ‘President’ Joe Biden with the strike of a pen ends his predecessor’s immigration order that forced all illegal aliens seeking asylum to remain in Mexico. 
  68. 2021 Thursday C:  Speaking of the ‘President’ Biden administration, Israeli ambassador Danny Danon tells Newsmax TV he’s not worried about Twitter as much as he is about Biden’s pro-Palestinian ideas.  We are, too.  Meanwhile, Canada is upset that Biden canceled out the Keystone XL Pipeline because of the loss of high-paying jobs for both Americans and Canadians.  There are more than 10,000 jobs with a payroll of $2.2 billion going to vanish like a puff of smoke.   Republican Senator Rob Portman of Ohio is begging the Biden administration to reconsider.  Alaska Governor Mike Dunleavy says that Biden stopping drilling in the National Arctic Wildlife Preserve is going to destroy the economy in the 49th state while New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu says the raising of the federal minimum wage to $15 per hour is going to crush his state.  
  69. 2021 Thursday D: Meanwhile, jobless claims for last week came in at 900,00 which they say is less than the previous week.  Also, mortgage loan applications have gone down, too, now that leftists are back in charge.  Elsewhere, Little Mayor Pete is before the Senate today so he can become U.S. Secretary of Transportation all because he filled in the potholes of South Bend, Indiana.  You go, Mayor Pete, you go!  Next, after ordering mask mandates for all federal properties including highways, ‘President’ Joe Biden goes to the Lincoln Memorial wearing NO mask.  Fine him!   Finally, ‘President’ Biden says we are rejoining the World Health Organization. Boy oh boy.
  70. 2021 Thursday E: Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, blasts ‘President’ Joe Biden for reentering the Paris Climate Accord.   Next, conservatives are outraged that a drooling Chris Wallace at Fox News Channel claimed that ‘President’ Biden’s inaugural address, one he barely managed to get through, as ‘the best he’s ever heard.’  No wonder people are abandoning FNC, it’s absolutely disgusting.   Elsewhere, fired, and disgraced former FBI Director James Comey says, ‘the GOP must be burnt down to the ground and rebuilt,’ we guess to get rid of the stench of Trump.  Yeah, right.  Finally, we learn that President Donald J. Trump extended Secret Service protection to all family members due to the lunatic lefties running around out there.
  71. 2021 Thursday F: The ‘Biden White House’ adds LGBTQIA+ friendly pronouns to its contact site.  Good for you!  Next, the U.S. Senate confirms Avril Haines as the nation’s next DNI.  Number one goal is cracking down on ‘white supremacists, white males (what Jews were to the Nazis, so are white males to the Democrats), and other evil denizens of the shadows.  Speaking of which, the FBI arrests some ‘militia’ members in Connecticut they claim were at the Capitol Hill Riots of January 6.  Meanwhile, what with new Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen tying Bitcoin to ‘nefarious uses,’ the cryptocurrency’s value drops by 10-percent overnight.  Elsewhere, California health officials, after halting the rollout of COVID-19 vaccines, have decided to fire them back up, judging whatever threat they thought they saw, no longer exists.   Finally, New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo says, ‘if the ‘Biden administration’ does not give him a $15 billion bailout to fix devastation for which he and his moron twin Billy Di Blasio bear full responsibility, he’s going to sue the administration.’  Wow.  Hopefully, we will see a repeat of what Gerald R. Ford told New York City back in the mid-1970s when they were begging for a bailout, “DROP DEAD.”
  72. 2021 Thursday G: Struggling Norwegian Airlines receives government backing for a survival plan in the era of COVID-19, the dreaded Chi-Com Virus.  Speaking of which, Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci, the man who has been wrong about everything on the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, says that he, ‘feels liberated’ working for ‘President’ Joe Biden.  Next, here are today’s stats for the Wuhan Flu, planet first: 97,268,568 confirmed cases, +627,964, 2,084,012, confirmed deaths, +15,091, and 53,588,790 confirmed recoveries, +321,780.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 24,496,018 confirmed cases, up 65,562 from yesterday’s reporting, 406,190 confirmed deaths, UP 1,378, and 10,562,082 confirmed recoveries, UP 51,007.  NOTE- the last TWO numbers have NOT been updated at post update time.
  73. 2021 Thursday H: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,090,339 confirmed cases, 35,004 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases, 325 confirmed deaths (not updated in a week), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 298,487 confirmed cases, 4,021 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Delaware: currently, they have 72,523 confirmed cases, 1,027 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 575,842 confirmed cases, 4,181 confirmed deaths, and 488,157 confirmed recoveries.  
  74. 2021 Thursday I:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,176.01, DOWN 12.37 points (-0.04%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,530.92, UP 73.67 points (+0.55%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,853.07, UP 1.22 points (+0.032%).  The price of GOLD is $1,869.90 per troy oz., +4.00 (+0.21%) while the price of SILVER is $26.00 per troy ounce, +0.151 (+0.58%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,136.10 per troy oz, +8.10 (+0.72%) while the price of COPPER is $3.65 per pound, -0.001 (-0.03%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,375.10 per troy oz, -28.10 (-1.17%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $53.03 per barrel, -0.10 (-0.19%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.71.  Next, $1.00 U.S. = 0.000032 Bitcoin (BTC).
  75. 2021 Thursday J: We learn that ‘President’ Joe Biden has followed in the footsteps of his mentor and former boss, President Barack Hussein Obama, and removed the bust of Winston Churchill from the Oval Office and returned it to the basement where Obama stored it for eight years during his two terms in office.  POS.  Meanwhile, Montana moves to prohibit trannys from participating in scholastic sports unless it’s boys with boys and girls with girls and not mixed-up, emotionally-troubled kids thinking they are something they are not.  Elsewhere, Wyoming State Senator Anthony Bouchard, a day or so after announcing he’s going to primary highly unpopular Congresswoman Liz Cheney in 2022 is raising money hand over fist.  Heck, we are sending him cash for his run.  Finally, reliably disappointing Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell thinks Trump should have TWO weeks to prepare for his upcoming ‘impeachment trial’ in the Senate.  Former President Donald J. Trump hires Butch Bowers, attorney in South Carolina to run his defense in this extremely bogus second ‘impeachment trial.’

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

If fans live long enough, they will be blessed with music the likes of which, they wish had come out 30, 40, even 50 years ago like this wonderful box set: “Live at the BBC” by Sandy Denny (September 13, 2007).  There are two overstuffed discs featuring a collection of some of her finest performances at the BBC along with a DVD and then a disc of tunes recorded for the BBC but unreleased on disc until now.  What more could one ask for other than a superb set of music.  One would think that her incredibly brief time on Earth as a performer would have been worth an album or two of music but no, there is so much left in the vaults with more guaranteed to come.  We hope you will seek this one out at your favorite site for the absolute best in music and make it a part of your ever-expanding collection- you will be glad you did.

Thursday, January 21, 2021, 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…

NOTE- ALTHOUGH NOT AS MANY AS JANUARY 20, THERE ARE STILL SO MANY U.S. POLITICIANS WHO HAVE ENTERED OR EXITED OFFICE ON JANUARY 20, IT WOULD TAKE US MONTHS TO GET ALL OF THEM ENTERED SO PLEASE BEAR WITH US…


[i] Not sure when we promote the music of the great Richie Havens but when we do, you will be the first to know.

[ii] We look forward to promoting the music of Edwin Starr one day along with Richie Havens and other famed soul (and folk) singers like Richie Havens.

[iii] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.

[iv] We began offering music by the supergroup Cream on Friday, 17-January-2014 through Monday, 03-February-2014.  Please seek out their albums by visiting posts on those corresponding dates.  You will be glad you did.  Sadly, at the time, we also should have presented the solo catalogs of Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce, and Ginger Baker.  We hope to do so at some point within the next decade or so.

[v] We presented another series of interconnected bands which included Free, Bad Company, Led Zeppelin, the Firm, Mott the Hoople, Ian Hunter, the Yardbirds, and a plethora of solo and group efforts beginning on Wednesday, 02-July-2014 through Sunday, 19-October-2014.  We definitely hope that you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your growing collection.

[vi] We began offering music by the supergroup Cream on Friday, 17-January-2014 through Monday, 03-February-2014.  Please seek out their albums by visiting posts on those corresponding dates.  You will be glad you did.  Sadly, at the time, we also should have presented the solo catalogs of Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce, and Ginger Baker.  We hope to do so at some point within the next decade or so.

[vii] When we present the music of the Allman Brothers Band, we will present the music of Gov’t Mule.  Stay tuned for further developments.

[viii] We look forward to doing the music of this famed funk-rock band.  The Ohio Players are amazing.

[ix] Yet in 2021 she would be the ‘vice president-elect.’  Go f***ing figure.  This shows the Chi-Coms are pulling strings all over the place.

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 NEEDS OUR HELP- LET’S HELP HIM!

15. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, JANUARY 15, 2022

58. 2021 Friday A: And so, it begins: Federal prosecutors seek Donald Trump Jr. for ‘questioning.’ Questioning for what, pray tell? Meanwhile, a Trump deputy in the White House is reassuring staffers in the era of Cancel Culture that they will be ‘okay,’ even as Harvard is on the edge of bowing to its students and stripping Kayleigh McEnany of her advanced law degree.

  54. 2018 Monday: Protests marking the seventh anniversary of the revolution in Tunis, Tunisia, turn violent as people begin protesting the current government.  Elsewhere, the Turkish government threatens to take actions against the U.S.-backed Syrian Border Security Force while the government of Bashar al-Assad threatens to extinguish all U.S. operations within his crappy country.  Neither does anything.  Meanwhile, as a former CIA officer tries to fly out of New York, authorities swoop in and arrest the POS Jerry Chun Shing-Lee on charges of espionage for- you guessed it- communist China.  After he left the Central Intelligence Agency, he retained all manner of info in notebooks and handed it over to his handlers.
  55. 2019 Tuesday: LGBTQIA+ activists accuse the government of Chechnya, a well-known place of ‘tolerance’ of a pogrom against gays what with 40 detained and two slain.  Meanwhile, a witness in the trial of Mexican drug lord, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman claims that former Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto took a bribe of $100 million from the cartel to look the other way.  Elsewhere, South Korean officials announce that North Korean officials will be visiting the United States to discuss setting up a second summit between President Donald J.

  57. 2021 Friday: A recent poll says that 9 out of 10 Americans oppose the Capitol Hill riots of January 6, the ones in which, Antifa infiltrated its commandoes amongst supporters of the 45th president to discredit them, in much the same way they have since the Charlottesville clashes between Antifa and white supremacists, BOTH groups we believe were set in motion by ONE entity: the Chi-Coms via their stooges in the Democratic Party.   Meanwhile, drooling House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi announces she is appointing retired U.S. Army General Russell Honoré- of Hurricane Katrina fame- to lead a task force to investigate how to transform the Capitol Building from a ‘soft target’ into a ‘hard one.’  One of the things she can do is not to tell Capitol Hill police officers to stand aside and motion Antifa thugs inside.  Furthermore, Madam Speaker cannot say when the second impeachment trial for President Trump will begin.  Next, lawmakers author a bi-partisan bill to honor slain Capitol Hill police officer Brian Sicknick.  God bless him.  
  58. 2021 Friday A: And so, it begins: Federal prosecutors seek Donald Trump Jr. for ‘questioning.’   Questioning for what, pray tell?  Meanwhile, a Trump deputy in the White House is reassuring staffers in the era of Cancel Culture that they will be ‘okay,’ even as Harvard is on the edge of bowing to its students and stripping Kayleigh McEnany of her advanced law degree.  Next, Trump campaign lawyer Jenna Ellis tells Newsmax TV that ‘this impeachment is no different’ and that it’s an ‘abuse of the U.S. Constitution.’  Meanwhile, Ric Grenell tells Newsmax TV that the ‘D.C. media has switched from the news to advocacy for all left-wing causes.’  Rudy Giuliani believes it’s all a scheme to prevent #45 from running for office again.  Finally, also to Newsmax TV, Dick Morris- famed political strategist and consultant- says that ‘impeachment and the 25th Amendment are watering down the presidency.’  NO- the AICPENDBLOG.COM believes the Democrats and the RINOS are trying to replace the presidency with a parliamentary system in which the party in power chooses who will be the figurehead.
  59. 2021 Friday B: New York State news- a new bill in Albany would make it illegal for New Yorkers to own or buy body armor.  Why?  Elsewhere in New York City, we now learn that thanks to the criminal mismanagement by Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo and addle-brained NYC Mayor Bill Di Blasio, more than 372,000 private businesses have been destroyed in the Big Apple, never to return, many of them in professional foodservice and hospitality. 
  60. 2021 Friday C: Due to ‘security threats’ in Washington, D.C., the Inauguration Day rehearsal for ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden has been pushed back to Monday. We learn that J-Lo and Lady Gaga are going to be among the left-wing performers celebrating the ‘victory’ of the incoming senile 46th ‘president.’  Next, according to Rush Limbaugh, the feds are rushing 25,000 troops into Washington, D.C. to prevent against the expected (Antifa-caused) violence on Wednesday, January 20.  (According to the talk show mega-giant, this is more troops than are currently station in BOTH Iraq and Afghanistan).  Speaking of the riots, the FBI reports that the Capitol Hill mobs planned to assassinate leaders.  Again, this sounds like Antifa and BLM human garbage, not Trump supporters.  Meanwhile, Mr. Biden chooses former FDA Chief David Kessler to head Operation Warp Speed. 
  61. 2021 Friday D: In a peculiar move, Oklahoma Senator James Lankford, a Republican, apologizes to black Tulsans for having opposed the certification of “President-elect Pro-China Joe” Biden.  Why?  What was racist about questioning the certification?  Dimwit. Next, the media appears to have twisted the remarks of Senator Tommy Tuberville, R-Alabama, in suggesting a delay on Biden’s certification.   
  62. 2021 Friday E: Elsewhere, a new poll shows that a vast majority of Republicans and swing state voters favor hiring U.S. workers before hiring illegal aliens.  Next, the Wyoming Republican Party is unhappy with Congresswoman Liz Cheney, one of their own, who was among the 10 RINO Republicans to vote for the SECOND IMPEACHMENT OF PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP.  (Note- those 10 representatives and four of their counterparts in the U.S. Senate- Lisa Murkowski, RINO-Alaska, Ben Sasse, RINO-Nebraska, Pat Toomey, RINO-Pennsylvania, and Mitt Romney, RINO-Utah, we believe will make it onto the list of nominees for the Fourth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award to be awarded in January 2022).
  63. 2021 Friday F: Fossilized ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden announces his COVID-19/Stimulus Plan: first, $20 billion for a national vaccination program.  Second, $50 billion for expanded testing, treatment, and tracing programs.  Third, $2,000 stimulus checks for all illegal aliens and American citizens.  Fourth and final, $15 minimum wage for federal entry level jobs.  Economist Stephen Moore says that the final peg of Beijing Joe’s stimulus plan will cost ‘4 million additional American jobs.’  WTF?  Next, the U.S. Secret Service is telling its officers in the run-up to Inauguration Day to remain ‘professional’ and ‘non-partisan.’  Meanwhile, the IRS announces it’s behind on 7 million tax returns from last year all because of COVID-19.
  64. 2021 Friday G: Russia cites the U.S. withdrawal from the Open Skies Treaty as its reason for leaving the agreement.  In Great Britain, it would appear that Mask Sharia is on the way there as the British government says, ‘people may have to wear masks forever.’  Wow.  Coming soon to a country near you?  Elsewhere, Dunkin’ Donuts has created a new biodegradable straw.  Congratulations.  Next, a Mickey Mantle baseball card sold for $5.2 million setting an all-time record.  Elsewhere, Joanne Roberts, widow of Mr. Rogers, dies at age 92.  Meanwhile, President Trump plans to hold an event as outgoing president on Inauguration Day at same time senile Old Joe is scheduled to place his quivering hand atop a Bible. 
  65. 2021 Friday H: Here are the numbers for the COVID-19 global pandemic, the planet first: 93,275,676 confirmed cases, +424,993, 2,000,905, confirmed deaths, +12,615, and 55,500,681 confirmed recoveries, +271,674.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 23,489,378 confirmed cases, up 108,386 from yesterday’s reporting, 390,378 confirmed deaths, UP 1,434, and 10,262,463 confirmed recoveries, UP 28,136.
  66. 2021 Friday I: 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: 2,898,041 confirmed cases, 32,291 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases, 318 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 288,127 confirmed cases, 3,949 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Idaho: currently, they have 153,506 confirmed cases, 1,593 confirmed deaths, and 69,460 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 535,049 confirmed cases, 3,910 confirmed deaths, and 447,076 confirmed recoveries.   
  67. 2021 Friday J:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,814.26, DOWN 177.26 points (-0.57%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,998.50, DOWN 114.14 points (-0.87%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,768.25, DOWN 27.29 points (-0.72%).  The price of GOLD is $1,827.70 per troy oz., -2.20 (-0.12%) while the price of SILVER is $24.83 per troy ounce, -0.036 (-0.14%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,078.70 per troy oz, -11.20 (-1.03%) while the price of COPPER is $3.50 per pound, -0.001 (-0.03%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,395.10 per troy oz, -28.20 (-1.16%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.04 per barrel, -0.32 (-0.61%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.48 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Hong Kong dollars equals 7.75.  In other economic news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue says the government ‘declared martial law by imposing the harsh COVID-19 lockdowns on the American people.’  How right you are, sir!
  68. 2021 Friday K: Senator Lindsey Graham, RINO-SC, says that the Mueller probe into Trump-Russia collusion- Crossfire Hurricane- was ‘the most incompetent’ and ‘most corrupt’ investigation ever conducted by the FBI and the Department of Justice.  Meanwhile, Vice President Mike Pence speaks with Vice President-elect “Kooky Kamala” Harris on the phone.  The incoming VP says she hopes for a ‘peaceful transition of power.’  Next, NY prosecutors drag former Trump attorney Michael Cohen in to answer questions about the 45th president’s finances.    Speaking of losers like Michael Cohen, Lt. Gov. Duncan of the Peach State snivels to reporters that the ‘Georgia statehouse is absolutely less safe now because of Donald Trump.’  Lt. Gov. Duncan- you should not have worked to throw the election to “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his Chi-Com masters who now are YOUR masters.
  69. 2021 Friday L: Currently, the feds are investigating 37 people for their part in the deaths that occurred during the Capitol Hill Riots of January 6.  Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, she whose pendulous breasts droop down to her waist, says, ‘there will be prosecutions for ALL House members who aided the (Antifa/Black Lives Matter) ‘Trump mob’ in storming the building.  We guess this means that YOU, Madam Speaker, will stand at the head of the line seeing as how YOU and ONLY YOU are in charge of the Capitol Hill PD.  Steven Sund, outgoing Capitol Hill police chief begged for help on at least SIX occasions with no help coming which means YOU stopped help from coming which means BLOOD is on YOUR HANDS.  We await YOUR prosecution! 
  70. 2021 Friday M: President Donald J. Trump orders U.S. Military Command for the Middle East to incorporate Israel into its organization so as to hasten Arab-Israeli military cooperation in defending against the Iranian scum.   Meanwhile, Apple CEO Tim Cook says that ‘Parler might make it back online provided they do something about moderating (censoring) content.  Elsewhere, the National Rifle Association files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy protections.  Finally, Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas rips ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden for his plagiarizing yet again someone else’s work- the COVID-19 Relief Bill. 
  71. 2021 Friday N: Elsewhere, the Atlanta Falcons hire Tennessee Titans OC Arthur Smith as their next head coach.   Note- we would love to see Matt Ryan make it to another super bowl.    Speaking of the NFL, two games tomorrow in the Divisional Round- L.A. Rams @ Green Bay Packers at 1:35 P.M. and Baltimore
    Ravens @ the Buffalo Bills @ 5:15 P.M.  Then on Sunday, we have two more games- Cleveland Browns @ Kansas City Chiefs @ 12:05 P.M. and Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ New Orleans Saints @ 3:40 P.M.
  72. 2021 Friday O: Here are the results for tonight’s massive Mega Millions Draw #1625 with a pot of around $725 million at stake: 03, 11, 12, 38, 43, and Mega 15.  Out of 643,493 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers BUT NO MEGA for a prize of $1,225,193.  Meanwhile, Alex Azar, Health and Human Services secretary offers his resignation, citing the Capitol Hill Riots as his reason for leaving the administration.   Elsewhere, we learn today that Bill Gates of Microsoft fame is the largest owner of private farmland in the United States with 242,000 acres.  Finally, in the waning days of the Trump administration, an asteroid the size of the Empire State Building, about 4.4 million miles from the Earth which is about 18 times the average distance between our planet and the moon.
  73. 2021 Friday P: The government of Morocco awards President Donald J. Trump the Order of Mohammad, the nation’s highest decoration, for his work in creating a framework of peace for Arab nations and Israel.  The ceremony occurred at the White House in a private ceremony.  Congratulations, Mr. President.  Let’s see if your successor keeps the framework of the Abraham Accords in place or tosses them on the rubbish heap and returns to brown-nosing the Palestinians.  Elsewhere, One America News reports growing evidence that foreign nations such as communist China interfered in our elections, NOT just in the 2020 Presidential Election but also in several state elections.  WHY aren’t the liberals braying about ‘ELECTION INTERFERENCE?’  Because we believe Beijing and their bought-and-paid-for stooges in the Democratic Party and among the RINO wing of the GOP conspired with them to deny President Trump his much-deserved second term.   Meanwhile, Norway reports 11 deaths connected to the vaccine for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.
  74. 2022 Saturday: Stick around for the latest…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next live effort by Fairport Convention was the wonderful “Off the Desk” (June 14, 2006). As always, these musical veterans deliver a powerful live show that sees them draw millions of fans to their music year after year.  People hunger for the OLD music because much of the new music- ahem, like Maroon Five, the Jonas Brothers, and other twits SUCKS. The band included virtuoso Andy Guttridge (acoustic guitars), Ric Sanders (violins), Dave Pegg (acoustic and electric basses, and tenor mandola), Simon Nichol (guitars and vocals), Gerry Conway (drums), and Chris Leslie (mandolins, fiddles, cellos, and flutes).  The two discs contain 22 classic tunes as only this veteran band can deliver which is why we encourage everyone to rush out to their favorite record shop and pick it up.  You will be glad you did, that we guarantee.

  27. 1944 Monday: With Mussolini clinging to power, the enemies who sold him out found themselves victims of a show trial- the Verona trials- in northern Italy.  His son-in-law Count Galeazzo Ciano was among those tried and when the trial ended, out of several defendants, only one was spared execution- Tullio Cianetti- who received a 30-year-stretch in a fascist prison until the end of the war.  He won his life because he wrote a letter of apology to Il Duce.

  53. 2004 Saturday: CBS issued a damning independent review of mistakes related to a “60 Minutes Wednesday” report on President George W.

  54. 2009 Saturday: Fate definitely can be a bitch.  A small vessel holding eight Somali pirates and their $3 million ransom from the now released supertanker MV Sirius Star capsizes in the Gulf of Aden, sending at least three of the scum to Davey Jones’ locker along with their ransom cash.  Wow.
  55. 2010 Sunday: Surpassing Germany, COMMUNIST China becomes the world’s largest exporter.   Elsewhere in the lovely Gaza Strip, three members of Palestinian Islamic Jihad group firing mortars into neighboring Israel got the surprise of their lives when they were killed.  We are unclear as to whether the human fecal matter’s weapon of choice blew up on them via a misfire or if the Israelis lit them up and left the remnants of their bodies littering the sand.  Either way, it was a good day for civilization.
  56. 2011 Monday: President Barack Obama is heading to Tucson, Arizona, for a memorial for the victims killed in the same shooting that critically injured Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, D-AZ 8th congressional district, and 13 others while claiming the lives of at least six.  A judge denies the shooter- nut Jared Loughner bail and remands the POS to the slammer.  Meanwhile, following the Saturday shooting, Congress plans to put forth new restrictions on 2nd Amendment rights.
  57. 2012 Tuesday: Mitt Romney wins the New Hampshire Republican Presidential Primary; Ron Paul places second and John Huntsman places third.  Elsewhere, Pakistan being a haven for crazed jihadists is not safe from the scourge they welcome with open arms.  In the Khyber Agency of the country, jihadist bombers carry out a massive suicide bombing that propels 29 people howling and shrieking up to Allah and leaves another 50 in one form of devastation or another. 
    WTF is wrong with these people!
  58. 2013 Thursday: A shooting at Taft Union High School in Taft, California, took place as troubled student, Brian Oliver, shot one individual, Bowe Cleveland, and wounded one other student, both of whom had repeatedly bullied him for being Gay.  Elsewhere, Quetta, Pakistan, is in a mess.  Following a bombing at a marketplace by members of the so-called ‘religion of peace’ that murdered 11 people and injured loads of others, a thug enters a billiard hall, detonates a suicide vest, and in the ensuing explosion, sends at least 81 followers of Islam to commune with Allah far sooner than any of them anticipated in doing and leaves another 120 in varying states of agony, many wishing they could have been among the first number and not among the latter.  Time for a reformation of the faith!
  59. 2014 Friday:  Indonesia’s Mount Sinabung erupts again, with pyroclastic flows streaming down the volcanic slope; the activity has caused the evacuation of 22,000 people from the danger zone around Sinabung.  Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms are once again up to no good.  Flexing their communist muscles, they slap a ‘fishing permit rule’ on all fishing vessels operating in the South China Sea, a body of water the communists claim as theirs.  This, of course, causes outrage from the United States, Vietnam, and the Philippines. 
  60. 2015 Saturday:  Commercial space company SpaceX successfully launches its Falcon 9 rocket, which has released the Dragon cargo ship into orbit to the International Space Station; the rocket returned to Earth after releasing the Dragon but had a rough landing.  Elsewhere, rock star David Bowie[xiii] died after battling cancer for 18 months.
  61. 2016 Sunday: Mexico begins the process of extraditing narcoterrorist Joaquim “El Chapo” Guzman to the United States.  Meanwhile, in Yemen, five people are killed in a bombing on a Doctors without Borders hospital.
  62. 2017 Tuesday: As Inauguration Day reports, ‘unsubstantiated reports’ arise that ‘Russia has compromising material on President-elect Donald J. Trump.’  This story turns out to be completely bogus.  Speaking of the crap the leftists are using against the incoming president, the confirmation hearings for Senator Jeff Sessions to become the next attorney general of the United States are interrupted (like it wasn’t planned, right) who storm the Senate chamber screaming, “No Trump!  No KKK!  No Fascist USA!’  Does anyone care to tell us this crap was not pre-planned?
  63. 2018 Wednesday: Following the amazing mark that Jeff Bezos’ personal wealth hits $106 billion due to a rise in the price of Amazon shares, he becomes the second man in the world to possess wealth in surplus of $100 billion.   This is a man that Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders- among others- want to destroy.  Meanwhile, President Trump digs in on his demand for funding for the border wall: “WE NEED THE WALL.”
  64. 2019 Thursday: According to data published in the scientific journal “Science,” the world’s oceans are warming faster than expected due to the burning of fossil fuels.  Many believe this is all propaganda designed to bring about the formation of a one-world government that leaders of the Third World will control and with which to redistribute the wealth of First World nations to S-hole countries.  Elsewhere, today is the first day that federal government workers miss a paycheck- all 800,000 of them- which leads to Democrats stirring up protests and ginning up anger among their street trash.
  65. 2020 Friday: Democrats are now blaming President Donald J. Trump for the Iranian shootdown of a Ukrainian jetliner that killed 176 people aboard her.  Yes, their arguments are convoluted and crazy but it’s all they have.  Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, chewing her cud[xiv], says she is ‘going to send the articles of impeachment to the U.S. Senate NEXT week.’  Most political observers are skeptical of this statement.  However, the dilapidated speaker says she will meet with her caucus in the House on Tuesday.  Does she possess the pair of humongous balls to move ahead?  We suspect she will because AOC is plotting behind her back.  Meanwhile, Tehran swears on a stack of holy Qurans that they did NOT shoot down the Ukrainian airliner.  Finally, Marianne Williamson becomes the 14th Democrat to abandon the 2020 race.  Oprah- WTF did you continue supporting someone you encouraged to enter the race.
  66. 2021 Sunday: The NFL’s Wildcard Weekend continues today with three more games in our expanded playoff format: (4) Baltimore Ravens, 20 (12-5) @ Tennessee Titans, 13 (11-6) (5) Chicago Bears, 9 (8-9) @ New Orleans Saints, 21 (13-4) and (6) Cleveland Browns, 48 (12-5) @ Pittsburgh Steelers, 37 (12-5).  Regarding the NFL, Pepsi says it’s going to concentrate on the upcoming Super Bowl LV half-time show and not so much on TV commercials. 
  67. 2021 Sunday A: In what many believe to be ‘too much, too late,’ the House Democrats have their articles of impeachment against President Donald J. Trump ready to go tomorrow.  Most believe their hope is to prevent the 45th president from seeking federal office ever again if they are able to squeeze a successful vote to impeach vote out of the U.S. Senate.  A growing number of Republicans are urging incoming ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden to order House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi to stop the proceedings as it will only rip the country further apart.  NO one expects that Biden will stop them, he wants to see his predecessor suffer.  Mitch McConnell, R-KY, says that the Senate won’t reconvene until January 19 so no impeachment proceedings can begin until Inauguration Day.  Meanwhile, the House of Representatives plans to increase travel security for its members following Senator Lindsey Graham being heckled at Reagan International Airport.  Elsewhere, D.C. Mayor says she is ‘concerned about securing ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden’s safety’ on Inauguration Day which tells us that the Democrats plan on another FALSE FLAG operation on January 20, 2021, in which white Antifa members will be dressed in Trump garb and will riot across the city.  How diabolical.
  68. 2021 Sunday B: In a move that surprised NO one, the Pentagon says it’s going to rename U.S. military bases named for Confederate States of America war heroes.  Wimps.   Meanwhile, the U.S. military is upping its preparations for Inauguration Day.  Regarding this matter and the storming of Capitol Hill this past Wednesday, former NYPD Police Commissioner Bill Bratton says he’s shocked at the lack of preparedness exhibited by the Capitol Hill police.  Perhaps he did not see the tape where cops behind the Capitol Building were waving the demonstrators into the facility?  Seems as though they had orders to allow the Antifa mob in.  Speaking of Antifa, Fox News’ Judge Jeannine Pirro says, “Republicans must stop blaming Antifa for Wednesday’s events.”  F— you, judge.  
  69. 2021 Sunday C: BIG TECH giants have coordinated their attack on FREE SPEECH alternative to Twitter, Parler, with most app stores and server sites announcing they are either out of their stores or will be closed and denied server service come midnight tonight.  Likewise, Brad Parscale- former Trump campaign manager- says he urged President Trump to go to Parler sooner because he anticipated that Facebook and Twitter would ban the 45th president’s social media accounts sooner than they did.  Speaking of BIG TECH, RINO Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, swears he’s going to do something about Section 230.  Sure, Lindsey, sure.  Regarding Section 230 which came up during the formation of the Defense bill, there is funding in that document for the creation of a new cyber czar to oversee America’s cyber defenses.
  70. 2021 Sunday D: Scientists report that the Earth is spinning faster on its axis than it has in decades.  Meanwhile, scientists also tell us that 2020 was a devastating year for costly climate events what with 22 events costing a billion dollars or more per each event.  Of course, this will lead the incoming 46th president to force the Green New Deal through both houses of Congress and into high-tax reality.  Not good for the American people.  Elsewhere, a tornado touches down in the central Texas town of Franklin which leaves hundreds of families displaced.
  71. 2021 Sunday E: Israel is deploying its anti-missile defenses pending threat of Iranian nuclear strikes.  The mullahs are always jabbering about nuking Israel, we should nuke them first.  Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo lifts self-imposed restrictions on visiting Taiwan.  This will allow the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations to visit the Republic of China which has Beijing upset.  Next, Indonesian divers pull wreckage and body parts from the Srivijaya Air Passenger jet that crashed earlier this week north of Jakarta.  Elsewhere, the Capitol Hill police officer whose head was stoved in by an Antifa thug wielding a fire extinguisher this past Wednesday- Officer Brian D. Sicknick- may lie in state in the Capitol Rotunda.  
  72. 2021 Sunday F: Crowdfunding site “GoFundMe” says, ‘it’s going to ban the raising of funds for those who challenged the 2020 Presidential Election.’  How nice.   Meanwhile, Bitcoin doubles in price to a new record in less than 30 days.  Love that cryptocurrency. 
  73. 2021 Sunday G: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 90,180,310 confirmed cases, +663,871, 1,932,948, confirmed deaths, +8,944, and 49,948,772 confirmed recoveries, +279,343.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 24,451,123 confirmed cases, up 119,755 from yesterday’s reporting, 376,521 confirmed deaths, UP 1,482, and 9,850,654 confirmed recoveries, UP 22,750.
  74. 2021 Sunday H: 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: 2,687,085 confirmed cases, 29,701 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 23,341 confirmed cases, 309 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 275,832 confirmed cases, 3,775 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Kansas: currently, they have 345,541 confirmed cases, 3,148 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 491,319 confirmed cases, 3,671 confirmed deaths, and 412,296 confirmed recoveries. 
  75. 2021 Sunday I: Senator Pat Toomey, RINO-PA, joins fellow RINO Senator from Alaska Lisa Murkowski to demand that President Trump step down from the presidency because of HIS CALLING HIS FOLLOWERS TO REVOLT which he did not do.  The impeachment articles being introduced tomorrow have 185 co-sponsors.  Currently, federal law enforcement is arresting numerous people who participated in the storming of the Capitol Building on Wednesday but NO mention of them being Antifa members (which we know they are).  Still, this is the direction in which, we are going- full left-wing lockdown thanks to the Dems and the RINOs doing what they are doing.
  76. 2021 Sunday I: Folks, we live in crazy times but there is ONE CONSTANT that does not change- the crookedness of money-grubbing Democrats and their RINO pals and buddies and the unseen hand behind the curtain- the Chi-Coms in Beijing.  We encourage everyone to stick around and discover whatever the truth may be today- you will be glad you did.
  77. 2022 Monday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album delivered by Fairport Convention was a ‘blast from the past,’ culled by an archivist: “Acoustically Downunder” (06-29-2005), an album of live music from 1996 while the band was on tour in Australia.  The band included virtuoso Maartin Allcock (guitars, mandolins, and the bouzouki), Ric Sanders (violins), Dave Pegg (acoustic and electric basses, and tenor mandola), Simon Nichol (guitars), and Dave Swarbrick (fiddle).  It is amazing- and extremely enjoyable- to envision each of these performances with your mind and ears.  We love it, we know you will love it, too, and you can find it at almost every site specializing in classic rock/folk rock music such as Amazon, Discogs, AllMusic, eBay, you name it, it’s available.  We hope you do check it out as we believe you will love this band as much as we do.  Enjoy.

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

Sunday, January 10, 2021, Today in History Blog Post:   

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…


Monday, January 10, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

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

[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 should have done the music of Journey when we did the music of Santana or the Steve Miller Band.  We f**ked up.

[iv] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.  This presentation included the Jefferson Starship, too, of which, the artist was NOT a member.

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

[vi] At some point when we return to presenting the music of American bands, we will promote that of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers as well as of Tom Petty himself.  We hope you will await word as to when we do.  We thank you.

[vii] We look forward to promoting the music of UFO and of the Michael Schenker Group at some point within the next year.  We hope you will remain vigilant as to the day that we do.

[viii] We promoted “Introducing the Beatles” on Sunday, 06-November-2016.

[ix] We promoted “Meet the Beatles” on Monday, 07-November-2016.

[x] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.

[xi] We promoted George Harrison’s “Concert for Bangladesh” on Thursday, 16-December-2016.  We hope you will seek the album out and add it to your collection.

[xii] Sometime within the next decade, we hope to present the music of classic rockers Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters, and numerous others.  We know you will enjoy the presentation so please; remain vigilant for the day we do.

[xiii] We hope to promote the music of David Bowie within the next decades.

[xiv] Many people who contact us with comments are curious as to why someone so deranged as Nancy Pelosi is allowed to continue in her post.  Why hasn’t her No. 2, Steny Hoyer, D-Md., not come up behind her and busted a cap on her head?  We have no answer.  However, many believe that the Baby Evita- AOC- aka the FLY- is the one calling the shots and that older Democrats fear having her primary them in this year’s elections by putting up nuts like her, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib, to take them out.  Time for a ‘Night of the Long Knives,’ folks, to remove these youngsters as threats to the established order.

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!

  63. 2020 Wednesday: U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is considering the U.S. designating communist Cuba a state sponsor of terrorism, we believe because of the microwave sonic attacks on our embassy personnel.  The State Department also approves the potential sale of 3,000 smart bombs to Saudi Arabia.  Speaking of the Middle East, B-52 bombers begin flying patrols over the Persian Gulf to put the rat-shit Iranians on their backfoot.  Elsewhere, as things heat up in the two Georgia U.S. Senate run-off races, former President Barack Hussein Obama, and leftist singer/songwriter/performer John Legend team up to make a crappy TV add for ‘Pro-Beijing Jon’ Ossoff.   Regarding these races, leftist commentators are already predicting the results may take weeks to compile.  WTF- it’s a single state.  This should tell everyone shenanigans will be ongoing.  Also, in the Peach State, Governor Brian Kemp- a man whom President Trump helped get elected- says an audit of Fulton County is ‘not his to order.’
  64. 2020 Wednesday A:  On the world front, Argentina- the land from whence comes the worst pontiff in papal history- Pope Francis- passes a bill legalizing abortion.  Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms do TWO things: first, they jail activists in Hong Kong seeking to leave for better living conditions elsewhere with sentences of up to three years in a Chi-Com slammer.  Second, Beijing is demanding that Turkey repatriate Uighur Muslims who escaped western China to be returned to the communist country.  Why?  Answer: to join their fellow Uighurs in the concentration camps.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Beijing and the European Union ink an agreement that will ‘open’ China to Western investors.  What can go wrong with this?
  65. 2020 Wednesday B: In Moscow, President Vladimir Putin signs new laws that prohibit his country to control U.S. social media within his borders.  The laws also allow the Russian government to label individuals as ‘foreign agents’ as well as to prohibit the release of data on Russian intelligence officers.  The laws also allow him to run for two more six-year terms.  Mr. Putin just reestablish the Soviet Union and become dictator for life.  There.  We said it, just do it.
  66. 2020 Wednesday C: The U.S. posts record goods-trade gap ahead of the 2020 holidays.  Meanwhile, Congress creeps closer to overriding President Donald J. Trump’s veto of the $740 billion of the U.S. Defense Policy Bill, all because they won’t strip BIG TECH of its Section 230 protections for platform providers.  The reason the president wants them stripped is because they behave like publishers and must face penalties for their conduct.  Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell blocks the $2,000 COVID-19 relief checks demanded by the president while allowing foreign aid to continue flowing to various countries around the world that hate our guts.  See you in six years, Mitch.  Regarding Mitch, Senator Josh Hawley, R-Mo., says he will stand with GOP House members contesting the fraudulent 2020 Presidential Election.  God bless you, Senator Hawley!  
  67. 2020 Wednesday D: Churches in New Mexico are being fined for holding packed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day sermons.  Meanwhile, GOP Congressman Adam Kinzinger, Illinois 16th congressional district, mocked Missouri Senator Josh Hawley for saying he will ‘object to election results’ on January 6, 2021.  Kinzinger is little more than a RINO in the pocket of the Deep State and Dems.   Speaking of Senator Hawley, apparently some snowflake at corporate headquarters for Wal-Mart tweeted out that the senator is a ‘sore loser’ and made fun of him, too, which led to a quick about face by Wal-Mart who apologized profusely for what their wayward employee did.  Elsewhere, California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom plans to use $2 billion (the state does not have) to reopen elementary schools.  The man took several billion from the gas tax earmarked for road and highway repairs and diverted it to fight Global Warming, fund the high-speed rail snafu, and fund CalPERS.  Finally, the United Nations says that ‘Trump’s pardons for the imprisoned Black Water operators convicted of killing ‘civilians’ in Iraq violates the Geneva Conventions.’[xi]  
  68. 2020 Wednesday E: The U.S. Census Bureau announces it will miss its deadline which means illegal aliens will most likely be counted in the Census which is not right.  A judge rules that illegal alien families cannot be detained indefinitely.  We say launch Operation Wetback II, load them onto planes, trains, trucks, buses, and run them across the border in Mexico.  If Mexico doesn’t want them, they must stop them from coming.  Meanwhile, pro-illegal alien leftists urge an extension on visa stays for noncitizens in the country while advocates against illegal aliens demand the opposite. 
  69. 2020 Wednesday F: Here are the latest stats for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, straight out of the fetid bowels of the world’s lone communist semi-superpower: 82,510,560 confirmed cases, UP by 601,673 cases, 1,800,400 confirmed deaths, UP by 13,563 deaths, and 46,640,066 confirmed recoveries, UP by 368,822 recoveries from yesterday’s figures.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 19,910,674 confirmed cases, UP by 197,630 new cases, 344,877 confirmed deaths, UP by 3,693 new deaths, and 8,757,150 confirmed recoveries, UP by 94,066 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: 416,584 confirmed cases, 3,307 confirmed deaths, and 372,284 confirmed recoveries.
  70. 2020 Wednesday G: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 2,246,307 confirmed cases, 24,963 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 21,209 confirmed cases, 285 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION OF confirmed recoveries anymore- what is up with YOU, Gov. Ige, you Democrat hack.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 245,750 confirmed cases, 3,433 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, Massachusetts: 367,918 confirmed number of cases, 12,338 confirmed deaths, and sadly, no mention of the confirmed number of recoveries- thank you.  Meanwhile, the U.S. demands the release of a Uighur doctor- Gulshan Abbas- the communist Chinese have given a 20-year stretch in a Chi-Com prison because of the human rights activities of his family in the United States.
  71. 2020 Wednesday H:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,409.56, UP 73.89 points (+0.24%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,870.00, UP 19.78 points (+0.15%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,732.04, UP 5.00 points (+0.04%).  The price of GOLD is $1,900.00 per troy oz., +6.80 (+0.35%) while the price of SILVER is $26.74 per troy ounce, +0.167 (+0.63%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,072.60 per troy oz, +15.80 (+1.50%) while the price of COPPER is $3.55 per pound, +0.005 (+0.14%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,378.40 per troy oz, +34.10 (+1.45%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $48.26 per barrel, -0.14 (-0.29%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.52 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.81 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.88.
  72. 2020 Wednesday I: Girls Scouts USA call on their bakers to address issues of child labor abroad in two Third World countries where young children harvest ingredients the bakers contract to use in their cookie products: Malaysia and Indonesia.  Why don’t we grow, and harvest products used in American food items here in the United States?  We do have tropical climates not only on the U.S. mainland but in Hawaii and in other U.S. territories in the Pacific Region.   Elsewhere, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp pushes back on President Donald J. Trump’s demand for his resignation: ‘Mind your own business.’  Elsewhere, John Paul Mac Isaac, proprietor the computer shop where Hunter Biden left his now infamous laptops for repairs says he ‘never had any intentions of changing the 2020 Presidential Election.  Finally, Alaska Airlines becomes the first major airline to ban ‘emotional support animals.’
  73. 2020 Wednesday J: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Super Lotto Draw #3521 with a jackpot of $7 million up for grabs: 27, 30, 37, 42, 46, and Mega 19.  The highest winners were NINE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $1,757 apiece.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #807 with a massive $363 million jackpot at stake: 03, 43, 45, 61, 65, and Powerball 14.  Out of 131,167 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who got FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $36,491 apiece.  God bless ‘em!
  74. 2020 Wednesday K: We invite everyone to stick around to discover whatever the Chi-Coms and their flunkies in the Democratic Party are up to today- you know they’re up to no good.  We want all of you to discover their misdeeds and crimes along with us…
  75. 2021 Thursday: Stick around…

We feel compelled to share with our new readers that we are an OPINION SITE and not a NEWS SITE although we do report the news.  If anything, we are big history buffs which is why we have been going strong since early 2009…

ENDNOTES:

[i] Sometime within the next decade, we hope to present the music of classic rockers Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters, and numerous others.  We know you will enjoy the presentation so please; remain vigilant for the day we do. 

[ii] We began promoting the music of Mountain beginning on Friday, 14-December-2012 through Sunday, 20-January-2013.  This also included West, Bruce & Laing but sadly, we overlooked Leslie West’s solo career so please stay tuned for his discography sometime in the next 8-12 years.

[iii] 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.

[iv] We expect to do the music of Jethro Tull, Wild Turkey, Ian Anderson, and Paris sometime in the next 5-6 years.  We hope you will still be with us.

[v] We look forward to doing the Clash but expect to do Supertramp first, then Pink Floyd, then Electric Light Orchestra/the Move, then Yes, and then perhaps the Clash.  They are among the amazing British rock bands of the 1970s and deserve to be acknowledged as such.

[vi] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.

[vii] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.

[viii] We look forward to doing the music of this famed funk-rock band.  The Ohio Players are amazing.

[ix] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.

[x] We presented the music of the Kinks, as well as of Ray and Dave Davies, beginning on Monday, 22-December-2014 through Sunday, 15-March-2015.  We hope you will check out the music of this original British invasion band as they are as relevant today as they were more than 50 years ago.  Sure, beats the hell out of Maroon Five.

[xi] We say ‘F**k the United Nations.  When the UN calls the Russians on the carpet for all the people they’ve murdered in the Middle East (and around the world) or goes after their bosses, the Chi-Coms for running concentration camps, we will worry about Black Water operators but not until the UN finds its balls and does the job it was created to do.  C**ksuckers.

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!

66. 2017 Wednesday: In Yemen, a Saudi-led airstrike on a Houthi rebel camp in the nation’s capital of Sana’a kills at least 30 Iranian-backed terrorists and wounds loads of others. Light ‘em up! Meanwhile, Palestinian militants fire a barrage of rockets into Israel. The minister of defense said the Iron Dome took out two of the missiles while one went down in an open field. Retribution soon to come.

Bush.  This occurred after the U.S. Supreme Court ordered a stop to the ongoing Florida recount thus giving both the state and the presidency to the Texas governor.  Speaking of Texas, the so-called ‘Texas Seven’- a band of seven incarcerated thugs breaks out of the John Connally Unit near Kenedy, Texas, and go on a rape, robbery, and murder spree.  They were on the lam until concerned civilians noticed them posing as ‘Christian missionaries’ and fingered them to the cops.  Eventually,  four of them were executed in Texas’ death house.

  54. 2005 Tuesday: A European Union investigation into CIA activities on European soil- and elsewhere in the world- leads to allegations of the Central Intelligence Agency’s kidnapping and abductions of European citizens.  They contend the U.S. spy agency spirits the hapless individuals to secret black site prisons.  That damned President George W.

Trump chooses Texas Governor Rick Perry to become his secretary of Energy.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of Energy is bucking the Trump transition team by refusing to provide the names of its members who worked on the Obama climate change strategy.  Yet in 2020, with ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden appearing to be ‘incoming,’ the Dems are calling for UNITY.  Hypocrites.  Next, President-elect Donald J.

  76. 2020 Sunday G: 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: 72,084,868 confirmed cases, +619,208, 1,610,265, confirmed deaths, +9,027, and 47,064,409 confirmed recoveries, +1,521,606.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 16,322,151 confirmed cases, up 164,818 from yesterday’s reporting, 302,058 confirmed deaths, UP 1,480, and 7,443,901 confirmed recoveries, UP 45,374.

  78. 2020 Sunday I:  Here is where we were one year ago today: even though it’s Sunday, we understand that the Chi-Coms via their allies in Iran, Russia, and Canada- along with their bozos in the Democratic Party- are up to no-good which is why we encourage everyone to stick around and uncover what these dog-eating Chi-Coms and their partners in crime are up to today.   One thing we learned today is that Columbia University accepted $1,000,000 from the Confucius Institute in Beijing.  While they claim it’s on the up-and-up, everyone knows they are taking Chi-Com money in exchange for access to research secrets.  MF-ers!

  68.  2020 Monday B: 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: 63,029,075 confirmed cases, +498,075, 1,464,795, confirmed deaths, +8,001, and 40,335,219 confirmed recoveries, +345,435.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Xi Jinping Bat Flu pandemic: 13,609,774 confirmed cases, up 157,269 from yesterday’s reporting, 271,202 confirmed deaths, UP 18 (that’s right), and 6,592,275 confirmed recoveries, UP 41,095.  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: 1,226,132 confirmed cases, 19,167 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 17,925 confirmed cases, 242 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 168,781 confirmed cases, 2,828 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Connecticut, currently, they have 117,295 confirmed cases, 5,020 confirmed deaths, but 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: 336,160 confirmed cases, 2,864 confirmed deaths, and 323,224 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at another nation: Spain: they have 1,648,187 confirmed cases of the CHI-VI, 495,069 confirmed deaths and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.

  70. 2020 Monday D: NATO secretary-general Jens Stoltenberg says that the Chi-Coms pose a significant risk to member nations of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization which the communist Chinese do so all European nations suckered into participating in the Belt and Roads Initiative must separate from Beijing NOW.  Meanwhile, Congress returns from its Thanksgiving recess with a number of major spending bills still on the agenda.   Elsewhere, the U.S. Navy announces its fire-ravaged San Diego based amphibious assault ship will be decommissioned after having suffered a mysterious blaze that nearly totaled the ship earlier in the year.  Finally, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger is investigating out of state and foreign entities attempting to set up residence in the Peach State so they can interfere in the two U.S. Senate run-off races in January.

  72. 2020 Monday F: Another one bites the dust: California Congresswoman Christy Smith of the 25th House District concedes the election to Republican candidate Mike Garcia.  Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi loses yet another seat bringing her majority down even further.  This is what happens when you promote socialism in a FREE nation.  Meanwhile, schools in San Francisco are considering renaming 42 of the schools within their city, removing names such as “Lincoln” and “Feinstein” in an effort to remove racist or oppressive names so as not to cause students to break down in tears.  Wow.  Elsewhere, Apple, Nike, and Coca-Cola deny they employed lobbyists to weaken a bill in Congress that would force U.S. companies to put disclaimers on their products regarding using Chi-Com concentration camp inmates to manufacture their products.  We find this shocking.  Everyone at the AICPENDBLOG.COM will buy no more products from these three companies and advise that you don’t either until they sever ties with Beijing and their thugs, and the communists release all the Uighurs currently being held in captivity.   Apple, Nike, and Coca-Cola say if they must do this, it will harm supply chains.  Well, how about making your fricking products in the United States again?
  73. 2020 Monday G: For the second straight month in a row, Americans signed less mortgage contracts than they did the previous month due to lack of available housing what with COVID-19 lockdowns halting construction as well as lack of confidence that if “Pro-China Joe” Biden actually schemes his way into the White House, lockdowns and harsher restrictions will create havoc with employment.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Fairport Convention returned with their next studio album on January 09, 1995: “Jewel in the Crown.”  Once again, the band was doing their best at combining various elements of British folk music with rock elements, thus creating a hybrid of delight.  The band consists of (1) Maartin Allcock (numerous stringed instruments, keyboards, and vocals) (2) Dave Pegg (basses, guitars, and vocals) (3) Ric Sanders (violins) (4) Simon Nichol (guitars, vocals), and (5) Dave Mattacks (drums, percussion, and keyboards).  As always, the band combines covers of favorite British folk tunes with some self-penned material as they always do.  We hope you will seek this classic album out wherever it is you shop for the absolute best in music- you will be glad you did.
