  53. 2017 Friday: President Donald J. Trump acknowledged for the first time that he was under federal investigation as part of the expanding though phony probe into Russian election meddling as he lashed out at the top Deep State operative in the Justice Department overseeing the fraudulent probe.   Meanwhile, he tightens up on the open relations with communist Cuba that his predecessor Barack Hussein Obama had loosened while he was in office.  Finally, Amazon.com announces its plan to buy Whole Foods for $13.7 billion, becoming an ever-greater monopolistic octopus.  How come Democrats don’t want to hammer them with a huge antitrust suit?
  54. 2018 Saturday: Communist China announced 25 percent tariffs on $34 billion in U.S. imports, including soybeans and beef, in response to President Donald Trump’s tariff hike on a similar amount of Chinese goods.  The Chinese also scrapped agreements to narrow the trade surplus with the United States.  Elsewhere, after a frantic search for a missing woman in Indonesia, horrified villagers find her body consumed by a massive python.  This is but the second documented case of a humongous python engulfing a full-grown human being.

  57. 2020 Tuesday: President Donald J. Trump signs an executive order to begin the reformation of the nation’s police agencies.  Democrats screech ‘IT’S NOT ENOUGH’ and that ‘TRUMP IS A RACIST.’  Ah, well, we know the Dems will never accept anything President Trump does.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 298,182 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 161,467 deaths

  63. 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 and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.227 per gallon, $2.962 in Florida, $3.978 in Hawaii, and $3.625 in Washington state.[xix]    Let’s look at one other location- Minnesota: $2.858.  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- Lesotho: $3.766 per U.S. Gallon.[xx]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,413,747,338,681 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 which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after India, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Singapore with $168 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position).[xxii]
  64. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Friends, today is Day #85 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the border calamity and not to have shown up for a single day’s work on the job.  Still, President Donald J. Trump will be visiting the Texas-Mexico border with Governor Greg Abbott, Republican, on June 30.  Many are speculating as to whether the laughing jackass border czar will rush down to the border for a quick photo op or won’t show up thereby proving our point, she is little more than a low IQ, empty pantsuit, the former ‘mattress’ of California Democratic Party bigwig, Willie Brown.  Ah, well, speaking of Governor Abbott, the patriotic Texas governor said that President Donald J. Trump set a ‘high mark’ for control of the southern border.
  65. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Meanwhile, One America News shared the latest stats today concerning the border cataclysm: (1) Cost this day of caring for millions of illegal aliens: $585,083,840.  (2) Total Cost this Year of caring for the tidal wave of illegal aliens: $182,502,932,480.  (3) Total numbers of illegals who have crossed into the U.S. this year: 1,870,509.  (4) Estimated total number of illegals sucking away at the teats of the American taxpayers: 35,870,508.  Note, we have said since 2009 at the blog’s inception that the total numbers were 35-50 million; now, we believe we have 75-100 million river-swimming, fence-climbing, and/or desert-crossing illegals in the U.S.  IF we deported ALL the illegals gobbling away at the benefits of being an American, rents and mortgages would precipitously drop, wages would go up, our students would become better-educated and would move through the educational system at a faster pace, Social Security and Medicare would be strengthened, and there would be far fewer Americans drawing unemployment and welfare checks.  There would also be less crime, fewer drunken driving fatalities, less rapes- especially of minors, fewer break-ins, less shop-lifting, you name it, our country would be in such better shape, it’s difficult to comprehend until you start comprehending it.  Yet, they want them here which to us verifies the veracity of the Replacement Theory.  Still, we say, BUILD THE WALL AND DEPORT THEM ALL.  NOW.  Update- “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis, R-FL, is sending law enforcement officers to Texas and Arizona to help defend the southern border.  God bless him!
  66. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Fred Fleitz, CEO of the Center for Security Policy, made the witty observation that the ‘Europeans LOVE decrepit old Joe Biden’ because ‘America is back.’  America is back meaning the U.S. will be footing the bill while the Europeans are allowed to renege on their obligations.  Speaking of Joe Biden overseas, the summit between he and Russian President Vladimir Putin failed to go the distance today.  Instead of going the full five hours promised by the ‘drooler-in-chief,’ it went about half that.  President Putin held a press conference first and ripped the U.S. leader a new one in subtle and witty ways while Joe then came out, held his, and we must say, the Aduhelm must have been working well today because we would give his press conference a C+ grade.  (Note- we don’t expect to see the feeble old perv for about a week now as he tries to recover from this challenging trip).   The two leaders apparently agreed to a return to the arms control treaty negotiations (all the while the Chi-Coms[xxiii] continue building a massive arsenal) as well as to the exchange of diplomats once again.  Former Rep. Peter King, R-NY 2nd congressional district, said it was ‘way too early for Joe Biden to be meeting with President Vladimir Putin.
  67. 2021 Wednesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information– Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom, DS-CA, says that the ‘new system for checking his citizens’ status for the Chi-Vi vaccine are NOT a vaccine passport.  (Good- because we are not going to get this crap anyway- see you in November, governor).  Next, a new report says that at a pop-up vaccination site in New York City, medical personnel carried out 899 ‘jabs’ using defective vaccines.  Say what?  Yet another reason to avoid this crap.  Elsewhere, the U.S. government has spent more taxpayer monies buying 14 million Johnson & Johnson vaccines for overseas export.  Meanwhile, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says he is ‘yet to get a response from either the National Institute of Health (NIH) or from Health and Human Services on his questions about the China Virus.  Senator- you won’t get a peep from either the NIH or HHS.  Next, brave scientists are calling for investigations into various ‘scientific journals’ that dismissed the Wuhan Institute of Virology lab leak theory.’  Excellent.  ‘Follow the science,’ folks…
  68. 2021 Wednesday J: Joe Biden Regime News I– “Kooky Kamala” Harris apparently trying to force a far-left agenda into the American economic system.  Not good, folks, not good.  Next- and this is the best one of the day- senile old Joe Biden is encouraging Americans to report radicalized family members, friends, and neighbors to the authorities so the RACE POLICE can swoop in and spirit them away in the dead of night to one of their black site secret prisons.  This smacks of the Gestapo’s Nacht und Nebel policy by which political dissidents disappeared during the dark of night.  Wow.   Meanwhile, the Biden regime releases its first list of top diplomatic nominees for overseas deployment.  Wonder where Rahm “Dead Fish” Emanuel will go?  Japan doesn’t want the POS.  Finally, Joe Biden is reversing yet another Trump Era policy by providing increased protections to tranny students, i.e., mostly ‘chicks with dicks’ students, what we used to call ‘exotics.’
  69. 2021 Wednesday K: Joe Biden News– When reporters asked fumbling Joe Biden if he STILL THOUGHT that Russian President Vladimir Putin was a ‘killer,’ the usurper in the White House did his best “Kooky Kamala” Harris imitation and broke out in maniacal laughter before forgetting the question.  Friends, this is embarrassing to have a mentally-incapacitated dimwit in the White House.  This is, indeed, the SHAME of our country.  Speaking of our national embarrassment, Joe Biden claims to have given President Putin the ‘what for’ during their short meeting.  Question: when everyone returns to the United States, will the U.S. Congress demand that Joe’s interpreters appear before congressional committees and tell the lawmakers what was really said and how poorly Joe’s performance was?[xxiv]  Remember, after President Donald J. Trump met with his Russian counterpart, Democrats were demanding the interpreters testify to exactly what was said during the two leaders’ private meeting.  (Note- we don’t expect this will ever happen).
  70. 2021 Wednesday L: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger feeling intense heat down his backside is now going to investigate the missing ballots transfer documents and chain of custody.  From what we hear, there were more illegal ballots in Fulton County, Georgia, than anywhere else in the state and it’s clear that if an HONEST and IMPARTIAL audit is conducted, we will learn the truth.  We await more information…
  71. 2021 Wednesday M: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– New reports suggest that law enforcement recruitment is way, way down, while retirements are skyrocketing.  We imagine many law enforcement officers could find employment in Arizona and Texas, especially if those two states are going to continue fortifying their frontiers and creating their own statewide border patrols.
  72. 2021 Wednesday N: Political News I– New York City finds itself being consumed by a self-made problem: in midtown Manhattan, tens of thousands of ‘urban outdoorsmen’ have set up tent cities.  Wow.  Next, the House GOP seeks a review of BIG TECH’S close ties to the Chi-Coms.   In other news, Texas Democrats are launching a last-ditch effort to stop the Constitutional Carry Bill becoming the law of the Lone Star State.  Screw the little wimps. Elsewhere, Chicago Mayor Lori “The Loser” Lightfoot is seeking to halt alcohol sales after midnight.  Uh, what will this accomplish?  People will buy their liquor at 11:59 P.M.   Finally, Pennsylvania Democrat Rep. Madeleine Dean, 4th congressional district, is NOT going to seek the seat of outgoing RINO Senator Pat Toomey.
  73. 2021 Wednesday O: Political News II– Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, proposes changes to Dem-backed voting bill newly renamed from the “For the People Act” to the “John Lewis Voting Rights Act” which means it’s still the same old shit, repackaged, and returned to the shelf.  NO one buy this stinking piece of crap bill.  Meanwhile, Rep. Greg Steube, R-FL 17th congressional district, working on behalf of the family of Ashli Babbitt says information on her shooting death at the U.S. Capitol Building during the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021, is difficult to come by.  He is seeking answer as to whom the Capitol Hill police officer who shot her dead is and the circumstances as to WHY he shot her, an unarmed woman, attempting to climb through a broken window.  Moving on, GOP House and Senate members return to Washington, D.C., to hold their weekly conference.  Republicans- how about this: how about demanding answers as to WTF the Capitol Hill protesters are still locked up, mostly in solitary confinement?  IF you don’t defend these people, one day, the government will come for you.[xxv]
  74. 2021 Wednesday P: NASA, Space, and UFO News– Noted UFO filmmaker Jeremy Corbell says that when the UFO report comes out later this month, it will reveal uncomfortable truths for the American people.  Mr. Corbell told Rob Schmitt on Newsmax that the New York Times has said that the report will leave out the possibility of the technology being seen is a secret U.S. military program much less a Chi-Com or Russian program.  That will leave us with but one simple truth: it’s from somewhere else, NOT of this Earth.  Look, if it were Chi-Com, Russian, Iranian, or North Korean, do you think they would not already be ruling the planet?  Of course it’s from somewhere else and that means there is little to nothing we can do about it except await its arrival.  Elsewhere, SpaceX supposedly ignored an FAA warning regarding the launch of its Starship SN8 launch in December 2020.  We are sure Elon Musk had good reasons to blow off the FAA.
  75. 2021 Wednesday Q: Big Tech News– Amazon.com has introduced its new surveillance system to grocery stores.

  77. 2021 Wednesday S: Sports News– NBA star, point guard, Chris Paul of the Phoenix Suns is in COVID-19 protocols at the moment.  Not sure as to when he will be able to return.
  78. 2021 Wednesday T: Observation of the Day– Friends, there is BUT ONE WAY to STOP the tidal wave of illegal aliens pouring across the southern border and that is, the GOP must make a tactical decision with which to aid the overall strategy in combatting Joe Biden’s crimes.  We must make the tactical effort to reach out to the illegal aliens who are here, to make it appear that we are going to bring them into OUR FOLD.  We must make the Democrats believe we are recruiting illegals to become future GOP voters like the Democrats recruit children for immoral purposes.  We must enlist, recruit, and dragoon illegal aliens into becoming solid GOP members as once the Democrats realize they are losing on this battlefront, the trains, planes, buses, automobiles, and even empty freighters will be running 24/7/365 to get illegal aliens out of the country.  Once they begin shipping them out, we can throw the ones who helped us aboard those outbound modes of travel in the same way once the Indian Wars were over, General George Crook threw the Indian scouts onto the trains carrying the beaten Native Americans to the reservations.  It is a matter of saving the country so let’s make some tactical decisions NOW so our strategy can become reality at a future date.
  79. 2022 Thursday: Stick around and discover the events of the day along with us…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Mike Love was the next Beach Boy to release a solo album, “Looking Back with Love” on October 08, 1981.  While Mike has sung some of the most well-known Beach Boys tunes, his songwriting talents were not always as good as the Wilson Brothers or Alan Jardine or Bruce Johnston, thus he gets panned by the critics.  Mike also was not as forward-looking as was say, Carl, in that he favored performing the ‘golden oldies’ while Carl and Dennis pushed the band to move forward into the future.  Still, fans of Mike Love ‘love’ the album which is why we have it here for your enjoyment.  We hope you will seek this one out and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure.  We think you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

85. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, MARCH 26, 2022

2021 Friday: JOE BIDEN NEWS- Those of us who sat mouths agape yesterday watching Joe Biden stumble through his first press conference in 65 days were even more shocked today when what everyone knew to be true was proven true by photos. The discombobulated Biden was using a binder full of cheat sheets and crib notes and his list of reporters featured their names and photos of their faces and still he f**ked up calling them by the wrong names.

Bernie Sanders wins the primaries of Washington, Hawaii, and Alaska on this date.  Meanwhile, in another amazing ‘first’ for the Rolling Stones[x]– after being banned for more than 50 years from playing in the socialist ‘paradise’ of Cuba, the Stones arrive on scene and play a massive open-air concert in Havana.  There is a superb concert film of this show which everyone should see.
  73. 2017 Sunday: In the great ‘free democracy of Russia,’ anti-corruption protests around the country lead to the arrest of hundreds along with opposition leader Alexei Navalny.  Meanwhile, the people of Chile take to the streets in protests over the nation’s privatized pension system.   Meanwhile, in Cincinnati, Ohio, at the Cameo Nightclub, a scumbag with a gun shoots one person dead and wounds 16 others before the cops could arrive on scene.  They would be pounding the pavement seeking the multiple shooters.
  74. 2018 Monday: The United States, the Ukraine, and the European Union expel more than 100 Russian diplomats over the use of nerve agents to assassinate former Russian intel agent and his daughter in a public park.  Did it do any good?  NO, Putin is still the same pig he always has been.  Meanwhile, U.S. auto manufacturer Ford and Chinese e-commerce giant, Alibaba, unveil a new car-vending machine in the Chinese city of Guangzhou which rids the process of car-buying of salespeople.  Meanwhile, porn queen Stormy Daniels alleges in an interview on 60 Minutes with her attorney, Michael Avenatti, at her side that she had an affair with Donald J. Trump and that Trump’s ‘people’ (lawyer Michael Cohen) threatened the pitiful thing to be quiet.  This was later disproven, and the actress is paying Trump money she owes him via a lawsuit while Avenatti is going to federal prison.  Finally, a U.S. Army soldier receives the first transplant of a penis and scrotum at John Hopkins University in Maryland.
  75. 2019 Tuesday: For now, charges of facing a FAKE HATE CRIME against Empire actor Jussie Smollett are dropped only to be reinstated months later when the prosecutor is shown to be compromised.   Meanwhile, the first known transplant of a kidney from a live HIV donor and an HIV recipient occurs at a university in Boston, Massachusetts.   Elsewhere, BIG PHARMA giant Purdue Pharma reaches a settlement with the state of Oklahoma in the lawsuit regarding the opioid epidemic and its part in it: they agree to pay a settlement of $270 million. 
  76. 2020 Thursday: As of this publication time, COVID-19 Wuhan Virus statistics acknowledge 491,623 cases globally what with 22,169 deaths.  In the United States, there are 69,210 confirmed cases as well as 1,046 deaths.  Meanwhile, for the week of 03-15 to 03-21-2020, unemployment claims rose to 3.28 million.  As for the COVID-19 Relief Bill, right now, it clocks in at $2.2 trillion.  Still, the Democrats are not happy.
  77. 2021 Friday: JOE BIDEN NEWS– Those of us who sat mouths agape yesterday watching Joe Biden stumble through his first press conference in 65 days were even more shocked today when what everyone knew to be true was proven true by photos.  The discombobulated Biden was using a binder full of cheat sheets and crib notes and his list of reporters featured their names and photos of their faces and still he f**ked up calling them by the wrong names.  Most Americans are appalled enough already knowing that this fuddled old fool STOLE the 2020 Presidential Election but are even more so now that a majority of Americans realize we have a vegetable in the White House.  WTF is happening to our country.  Next, the White House says that Joe Biden is going to beef up gun control measures by scrawling his chicken scratch on more executive orders.  F**k you, Joe, NO one is taking our guns.
  78. 2021 Friday A: “RACIST! NEWS”/WHAT’S RACIST TODAY– Oakland, California Mayor and crackpot political hack Libby Schaaf backs an income supplement program that will help disadvantaged black folks but won’t help equally disadvantaged white folks living in that corrupt East Bay city.  Wow.  Next, a Minnesota-based dinner theater scraps a presentation of “Cinderella” because the cast was ‘too white.’   Meanwhile, black leaders zero in on Democrat holdouts in the U.S. Senate who do not want to toss the filibuster onto the heap.  Thus, they are going to accuse them of being racists 24/7/365 with the Reverend Al Sharpton at the head of the pack of accusers.[xi]  What a bunch of crap.   Elsewhere, the top editor at the Journal of the American Medical Association, aka JAMA- Howard Bauchner- found himself sidelined over a tweet and podcast he made in which he said: “No physician is racist, so how can there be structural racism in health care?”  Not good, Dr. B., black doctors became angry and out you go.  Get with it man!
  79. 2021 Friday B: LIBERAL STUPIDITY– Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascon- a George Soros appointee- is not going to try 20-year-old murderous thug Jalen Yoakum as an adult.  This means the POS will be back on the streets in five years.  When is L.A. County going to remove this worthless scumbag?  Meanwhile, the state of Oregon is going to go after concealed carry permits via a new direction by creating a patchwork of gun-free zones all over the place making it difficult for gun owners to carry their lawfully-owned firearms and avoid felonies.  Thugs, of course, will still be packing.  No wonder eastern Oregon wants to break off from the lunatics in the western portion.   Elsewhere, Dems in the Peach State are going berserk over Governor Brian Kemp signing the new voting rights bill.  Massachusetts phony Native American Senator Lizzie “Borden” Warren tweeted that ‘the man sitting in Stacey Abrams chair (good one, Lizzie, good one) is taking the state back to JIM CROW!”[xii]  In fact, a state black lawmaker, Park Cannon, was arrested for banging on the governor’s door after the cops told her to stop knocking.  Stupid skank.[xiii]   Finally, the White House says, ‘Joe Biden’ is worried about the Georgia voting rights law.[xiv]
  80. 2021 Friday C: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE– Congressman Burgess Owens, R-UT 4th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden owes border officials a big apology for creating the massive tsunami surge of illegal aliens flooding across our border.’  Meanwhile, as GOP lawmakers visit the overwhelmed southern border, Senator Mike Lee, R-OR, said that across the Rio Grande River, smugglers, gangbangers, and cartel trash were taunting them.[xv]  Elsewhere, the GOP is demanding that the news media be allowed to film along the southern border so the nation can see what the heck is going on down there with illegal aliens as thick as cockroaches in a Tijuana backstreet whore house rushing across it.  Time to do some pest control, folks.  Finally, it would appear that every sitting GOP U.S. senator is down at the border today blasting the inept Joe Biden administration.
  81. 2021 Friday D: JOE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION NEWS– thanks to Joe Biden’s incredibly stupid policies on energy production and usage, the U.S. is back to importing oil, much of which is Russian oil, and our guy has the nerve to call Putin a “Killer.”  WTF?   Meanwhile, former Ohio treasurer and candidate for Senator Rob Portman’s seat when he steps down at the end of his term said that ‘Joe Biden isn’t all there.’  Go figure.  Next, Joe Biden may invite Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping to a virtual climate summit.  Wow.  Amazing, Joe, simply amazing. 
  82. 2021 Friday E: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– USC reaches a settlement of $852 million following it acknowledging that a former campus gynecologist Dr. George Tyndall- charged with five counts of sexual abuse- abused hundreds of female students while employed at the University of Southern California.  The crimes allegedly occurred between 2011 and 2015.  Wow.  Lock him up.  Meanwhile, Senator Bernie Sanders, DS-VT, and rapper Killer Mike are meeting with folks in Bessemer, Alabama, the site of a big battle to unionize.  Liberal icon Amazon is doing battle with its workers seeking to unionize the plant to seek better wages and even better treatment.  Amazon will probably move the plant to Puerto Rico.  Be careful.
  83. 2021 Friday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– Governor Asa Hutchinson, R-AR, signs a bill ending trannys from participating in girls and women’s sports.  Excellent.  As we have repeatedly said, IF trannys are so determined to compete in sports, it’s far easier to create a third category of sports as well as separate locker rooms.  Let them have at it and we suspect that tranny sports would have far more fans than either girls/women’s or boys/men’s sports.  It’s like roller derby, everyone loves watching the women more so than men so how about creating a third category of competitive sports, you know, for the mentally ill- oh, wait, did we just say that?  Sorry.  Elsewhere, Dominion Voting Systems, the ALLEGEDLY CORRUPT ORGANIZATION THAT STEALS ELECTIONS FOR THE HIGHEST BIDDER- is slapping Fox News Channel with a $1.6 billion lawsuit alleging FNC slandered their fine, fine company.  Sounds like deflection to us or at least so says our attorneys.
  84. 2021 Friday G: FOREIGN/OVERSEAS NEWS– Since Kim Jong Un and North Korea have become belligerent again what with Joe Biden talking s**t about them, elements of the 1st Armored Division are deploying to South Korea.  Next, the People’s Republic of China, aka the Chi-Coms, have slapped reciprocal sanctions onto the European Union for having slapped human rights sanctions on them.  Elsewhere, the container ship beached in the Suez Canal threatens to be there for several months blocking passage through the incredibly important waterway.  This, of course, will lead to higher energy prices as well as drive up the cost of goods around the world.  Glenn Beck raised the specter as to whether someone hacked into the controls of the ship and caused it to run aground.  We thought this was possible after two U.S. Navy ships collided with commercial freighters back in 2017.  Two guided-missile destroyers, the USS Fitzgerald and the USS John S. McCain ran into other ships back in June and August of that year for which there was no real explanation.  Could it be the Chi-Coms, the Russians, or some other nefarious unseen actor is able to cause such mishaps?  Sure, seems possible to us…
  85. 2021 Friday H: MEDICAL NEWS– Former Centers for Disease Control- the CDC- Director Robert Redfield says that the ‘COVID-19 bat flu virus did indeed escape from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.’  The question is, was it a purposeful release?  Meanwhile, Dr. Scott Atlas said to Glenn Beck today that ‘science and expertise have become compromised, politicized, and that the demand for social distancing of six-feet or more (or less) is based on pseudo-science.’  God bless you.  Next, the U.S. pulls over 95-percent of its stockpiled PPE gowns over safety issues.  Must be the crap manufactured in communist China.  Moving on, the cities of Boston, Newark, and Norfolk will become mega-vaccination sites on the East Coast.  Elsewhere, Bill Gates says ‘life will probably be back to normal by 2022.’  Bill- STFU.  Finally, the European Union is peeved with its vaccine suppliers as the demand far outpaces the production.  Are you dummies using the Russian Sputnik vaccine?  Serves you right, dimwits.
  86. 2021 Friday I: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– President Donald J. Trump said today that during the Antifa/Black Lives Matter FALSE FLAG OPERATION launched against Capitol Hill on January 06, 2021, lawmakers were in ‘ZERO DANGER.’  We concur, it was set up from the start.   Speaking of President Trump, he will also remain neutral in the Alabama race for the U.S. Senate seat, and, according to Jason Miller, President Trump may visit the southern border soon.  Next, Congressman Byron Donalds, R-FL 19th congressional district, says that ‘Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi thinks she can remove anyone from office.’  Elsewhere, New York’s junior Senator Kirsten “Whitey” Gillibrand defends her call for Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo to resign as being her personal opinion.  (The Lov Gov must have called her up and threatened her).  Meanwhile, Speaker “Mumbles” Pelosi has authorized several House committees to conduct intensive investigations into rooting out the scurrilous scumbags behind the Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021, riots the Democrats set in motion.  She is angry NO Republicans will join her in yet another witch hunt.
  87. 2021 Friday J: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS IV– U.S. Cybercommand says that recent hacks by foreign actors are a ‘clarion call’ to arms.  You go.  Meanwhile, Parler says it informed the FBI of numerous threats made on its site prior to the Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021.  Next, Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, is calling for an end to the lockdown on the cruise ship industry.  Cruise ships must get back to work.  NOW.  Next, “Lonesome Dove” (and other books) author Larry McMurtry is dead at the age of 84.  God bless you, Larry!  Moving on, the Michigan GOP plans to bypass a weakened Governor Gretchen “Bride of Frankenstein” Whitmer, Democratic-Socialist, and fix the voting laws in their state.  Finally, Congressman James Comer, R-KY 1st congressional district, says ‘Congress holding BIG TECH accountable is going to be a challenge.’
  88. 2021 Friday K: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 124,683,860 confirmed cases, +579,564, 2,742,357  confirmed deaths, +9,863, and 70,731,503 confirmed recoveries, +338,716 (SAME AS YESTERDAY’S NUMBERS!).  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,223,587 confirmed cases, up 61,840 from yesterday’s reporting, 550,726 confirmed deaths, UP 1,315, (SAME AS YESTERDAY’S NUMBERS!) and 117,827,913 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. 
  89. 2021 Friday L: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 222,259 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States– feeble old Joe, in another three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  
  90. : COVID-19 STATISTICS 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: 3,648,021 confirmed cases (same as yesterday’s count), 57,909 confirmed deaths (same as yesterday’s), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,950 confirmed cases, 454 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 359,290 confirmed cases, 5,249 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., the third highest state after California- Florida: currently, they have 2,016,505 confirmed cases, 32,819 confirmed deaths, but sadly, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 829,689 confirmed cases, 6,122 confirmed deaths, and 808,869 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).   Let’s look at one other country- Hungary, former Axis ally: 586,123 cases of the virus, 18,703 confirmed deaths and 378,176 confirmed recoveries.[xvi]  
  91. 2021 Friday N: STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,072.88, UP 453.40 points (+1.39%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,138.73, UP 161.04 points (+1.24%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,974.54, UP 65.02 points (+1.66%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $60.72 per barrel, -0.25 (-0.21%).  The price of GOLD is $1,731.60 per troy oz., -0.70 (-0.04%) while the price of SILVER is $25.11 per troy ounce, 0.00 (-0.02%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,191.10 per troy oz, +13.20 (+1.12%) while the price of COPPER is $4.08 per pound, +0.01 (+0.28%).[xvii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,677.50 per troy oz, +52.00 (+1.98%).[xviii] The price of RHODIUM is $28,200.00 per troy oz., -900.00 (-3.09%).[xix]    Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.54 Chinese yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.58.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.   In Belize dollars, one greenback equals 2.00.[xx]  
  92. 2021 Friday O: 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 $3.889 per gallon, $3.635 in Hawaii, and $3.323 in Washington state.[xxi]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,097,328,683,045 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxii]  Cloward and Piven running amok.
  93. 2021 Friday P: NASA/SCIENCE NEWS– NASA reports that the humongous asteroid named Apophis originally thought to maybe impact the Earth sometime in 2068 now won’t come near enough to the Earth to wreak havoc on the planet for at least another century.  This bad boy from the cosmos is the size of the Empire State Building and is slated to pass within 20,000 miles of the Earth on Friday, April 13, 2029.  Astronomers point out that the moon is 238,000 miles away from our planet so this substantial chunk of rock is going to pass by us at an extremely close distance which astronomers are all excited about as it will provide them ample opportunity to get some good photos of it.  Let’s hope another chunk of space debris doesn’t slam into it, deflect it, and send it crashing down on our planet (unless it decides to hit communist China, Russia, or Iran first before creating a massive extinction event the likes of which ended the reign of the dinosaurs).   Italian astronomer Claudio Maccone says the best protection against space-based threats such as asteroids is space-based missiles with which to blow them up when they are a good distance from the planet rather than immediately threatening it.
  94. 2021 Friday Q: LATE NEWS I– Beloved children’s author Beverly Cleary died at the age of 104 today.  Meanwhile, rabid, foaming at the mouth liberals are suing Georgia’s elections officials over the new voting laws someone in the White House calls the ‘new Jim Crow of the 21st century.’  Yikes.  That hurts.  Elsewhere, the FREE nation of Taiwan, aka the Republic of China or Nationalist China, reported today that 20 Chi-Com warplanes penetrated its airspace today which led to rapid scrambling of attack planes and targeted missiles which drove the communist invaders back out to sea.  Light ‘em up, Taiwan, light those SOBs up!   Speaking of the Chi-Coms, them and the Russians are drawing closer together in an effort to intimidate the United States.  What else is new?   Former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger warns that the constant ‘U.S.-China contest risks catastrophic conflict.’ 
  95. 2021 Friday R: LOTTERY NEWS– Stay tuned for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1645 with a jackpot of $137 million on the line.  Get your tickets purchased by 7:45 P.M. tonight.  Here are the results: 04, 25, 37, 46, 67, and Mega 15.  Out of 69,400 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $18,502.
  96. 2022 Saturday: Thank God, it’s Saturday.  We hope things remain peaceful…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Robbie Robertson’s next solo album came out on March 10, 1998, and is somewhat unique among his growing discography of music.  The famed guitarist of the Band jumped into a celebrated effort in which, he tried to bring the music of the First Peoples of Canada, aka aboriginals, to a wider audience, sort of what Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones did when he presented his ground-breaking effort, “Pipes of Pan at Joujouka,” an album that came out in 1971.  In that effort, Jones presented the whirling music of North African flute players and drummers whereas here, Robertson brings together large numbers of musicians to play his visionary intermingling of native rhythms with modern musical forms.  We hope you will seek this one out, consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure, and then sharing it with others.  We think they will be as appreciative of it as will you.  Enjoy.

[i] We look forward to doing our favorite classical composers one day.  Hopefully within the next 30 years.

[ii] See “The Soviet Juggernaut” by Earl F. Ziemke and the Editors of Time-Life Books (1980).

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

[iv] 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.

[v] Not sure when we will begin promoting the music of Boston but when we do, we will alert the readership.  Stay tuned for further developments.

[vi] Our main reference for the epic battle at Dien Bien Phu is “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, 2004, Da Capo Press.  Please seek this amazing historical work out for a concise look at the battle that ended French control of French Indochina and the birth of Vietnam.

[vii] We hope to offer the music of Dire Straits sometime in 2021-2022.  Please stay tuned.

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

[ix] We promoted the music of Genesis and its members beginning on Tuesday, 02-April-2019 through Sunday, 15-September-2019.  This included not only the parent group but also Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett, Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford, Mike + the Mechanics, and Phil Collins.  Please, look for them.

[x] We shared the music of the Stones beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members’ solo projects.  We sure as heck hope you check out the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Keith Richard, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, and Mick Taylor.  Ronnie Wood you can find during the presentation of the Faces.

[xi] The Reverend Al never misses out on an opportunity to label people RACISTS.

[xii] She should KNOW about Jim Crow.  Democrats were- and still are, for that matter- the party of Jim Crow as well as the party of separate but equal, the KKK, slavery, race hatred, segregation, red-lining, white flight, burning crosses, police dogs, fire hoses, beatings, plantation prisons, and the Civil War.  Dems love braying about “JIM CROW, JIM CROW” as it is the new watchword of the day, everything anyone opposing them does is taking us back to “Jim Crow.”  Lizzie- STFU you lying, phony, hypocritical, crazy f**king bitch!  Enough is enough!

[xiii] This moronic little chub probably thinks, “Boy, I sure showed them!”  We’re sure she believes Governor Kemp is also a racist bigot.  Enough already.

[xiv] Why?  Can’t Joe just undo everything with yet another executive order and can’t the Democrats coerce RINO Governor Brian Kemp into signing another consent decree in 2022 that will permit overweight Stacey Abrams to steal the elections as she did in 2020?  What the hell is the big deal?

[xv] This is why we suggest seeding the Rio Grande with alligator pups from Florida, Mississippi, and Alabama as well as laying in minefields, antipersonnel, antivehicle, and antiboat impediments, putting down spikes on our side of the river IN the river at the border line, putting in military emplacements, troops, razor wire augmenting the wall, and completing the wall.  Hell, put in foo gas pits and whatever else we need to stop the invasion.  BUILD THE WALL AND DEPORT THEM ALL!

[xvi] We obtain our statistics for the coronavirus from: (1) Covid-19 u.s. and global statistics – Bing

  58. 2018 Tuesday: The U.S. Center for Disease Control (CDC) reports the highest-ever drug overdose death rates for the period 2016-2017: 142,000 deaths.   Elsewhere, South Korea announces after the failed summit between North Korea and the United States that North Korea might be willing to hold further talks on the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.  President Trump tweets that ‘progress might be coming.’ We doubt it.   
  59. 2019 Wednesday: The U.S. trade deficit rises to its highest mark in a decade: $621 billion.  Meanwhile, Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg announces plans to turn the social media (and intel-gathering) website into a more ‘privacy-focused platform.’  Good for you, Mark, good for you.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Department of Commerce announces that the nation’s trade deficit sits at $621 billion, the highest since 2008.  Most of the imbalance rests with the Chi-Coms.
  60. 2020 Friday: Global health authorities now say there are 100,000 cases of the coronavirus worldwide.  China remains the epicenter but getting the truth out of the communist nation is more difficult than pulling the teeth from a living dragon.  Liberals hopes for November take another nosedive what with February jobs numbers hitting 273,000 with a drop in the unemployment numbers to 3.5%.  Meanwhile wages across the nation are up by 3-percent.  Hence the Democrats continue trying to connect President Donald Trump to the coronavirus.  Elsewhere, the president stops in tornado-ravaged Nashville while on the way to the CDC in Atlanta.  He spends time on the ground consoling the victims of the hellacious storms. 
  61. 2021 Saturday: Today is Day 46 of the Biden Regime, socialism and communism never sleeps nor does beating the rug looking for all the white supremacists the LEFT claims are lurking all over the place.  They must have their radicals mixed up- it’s the Antifa and Black Lives Matter human fecal matter bobbing up and down in the liberal crapper, the one the Chi-Coms never seem to wish to flush…late in the evening/early in the morning, Chuck Schumer’s Senate passes the massive $1.9 trillion Joe Biden PORKULUS bill with which supposedly to relieve COVID-19 suffering.  Joe, you still have a trillion languishing from the previous Chi-Vi relief bill that has not yet been spent so what the f**k?
  62. 2021 Saturday A: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 116,169,119 confirmed cases, +387,940, 2,582,075, confirmed deaths, +9,722, and 65,695,020 confirmed recoveries, +198,353.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,192,273 confirmed cases, up 63,054 from yesterday’s reporting, 527,917 confirmed deaths, UP 2,357, and 112,910,453 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile drooling POS.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 199,440 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, other than sending the J & J Chi-Vi vaccine overseas, STOP SENDING U.S. vaccines to the Third World.  Also, prevent the invasion across the southern border. 
  63. 2021 Saturday B: 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: 3,592,779 confirmed cases, 53,889 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,000 confirmed cases, 443 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries- NOTE: Hawaii once again has somewhat frozen its information…WHY?  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 346,733 confirmed cases, 5,104 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- New Mexico: currently, they have 186,460 confirmed cases, 3,789 confirmed deaths, and 153,376 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 796,465 confirmed cases, 5,834 confirmed deaths, and 750,661 confirmed recoveries.
  64. 2021 Saturday C: As if things cannot get any worse for the embattled Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, Empire State’s soon-to-be-ex-governor, two of his senior female aides have thrown in the towel and left him in the lurch.  “Killer Cuomo,” just f**king resign.   Elsewhere, as illegal aliens continue swarming across the border and people become shocked by what’s going on, White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki- not the brightest bulb in any pack- says, ‘we don’t take advice from Donald J. Trump.’  You would be wise if you did.   Speaking of President Trump, he endorses South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster for another run in 2022 just as he endorses Lt. Gov. Griffin on Arkansas as that state’s next attorney-general.   West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrissey says the people must act to stop the power grab the Biden administration is carrying out against the country.    Finally, eight Senate Democrats balk at the $15 per hour minimum wage sought by the Biden administration.
  65. 2021 Saturday D: Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3540 with a $26 million at stake: 12, 18, 27, 28, 34, and Mega 19.  Out of 108,397 winning tickets, ONE person had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $38,985.  The winning ticket was sold at a Food 4 Less in Long Beach, CA 90805.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Drawing #826 with a $138 million jackpot up for grabs: 11, 31, 50, 52, 58, and Powerball 18.  Out of 69,278 winning tickets, the highest winners were three people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $12,844 apiece.
  66. 2022 Sunday: Thank God it’s Sunday.  Let us hope for a SLOW NEWS DAY…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On November 01, 1975, the Band managed to shelve their differences and get back to work.  The subsequent album, “Northern Lights, Southern Cross,” featured not one, not two, but three glorious songs that make it worth owning by every fan new and old.  “Ophelia” is about a woman every man has known at one time or another while “It Makes No Difference” is a lamentable tune that defines the end of a relationship that could either be one between lovers of between band members.  “Acadian Driftwood,’ the third tune, also is one that evokes an emotional response which makes this album superb.  The band features the lineup of Rick Danko (bass, vocals, and fiddle), Robbie Robertson (guitars and vocals), Levon Helm (drums, percussion, vocals, mandolins, and tambourines), Richard Manuel (pianos, organs, and vocals), and Garth Hudson (keyboards and saxophones).  We hope you will seek this one out and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure- we think you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

WE THANK EVERYONE FOR JOINING US AT WORDPRESS.COM AND FOR AIDING US IN CONTINUING TO DO THE WORK WE TOOK UPON OURSELVES MORE THAN A DECADE AGO

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


Sunday, March 06, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We promoted the music of the Zombies, Argent, Rod Argent, and Colin Blunstone beginning on Monday, 28-October-2019 through Sunday, 05-January-2020.  Please, check them out.

[ii] We look forward to doing the music of Pink Floyd within the next two years.  The offering will include the solo efforts of the individual members, too, like David Gilmour, Roger Waters, Syd Barrett, Nicky Mason, and Rick Wright. 

[iii] When we promoted the music of It’s a Beautiful Day beginning on Thursday, 25-August-2011 through Monday, 29-August-2011 and a second round on Tuesday, 04-February-2014 through Wednesday, 05-February-2014, we should have promoted the music of Pablo Cruise, too, due to their being interconnected.  We certainly will one day.  Ah, well, please seek IABD out and consider adding them to your collection.

[iv] Vladimir Putin stole the Crimea from the Ukraine during the second term of President Barack Hussein Obama.  From 2017 on, Democrats and anti-Trumper garbage claim that President Donald J. Trump is in bed with Moscow, when in fact, it was Obama who was the bed buddy of Comrade Putin.  Shame.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

  72. 2017 Saturday: At age 90, Dr. Thomas Starzl, the American surgeon who performed the first successful liver transplant, died.   Meanwhile, in a move that draws derision from the ‘Yes Mob’ Fake News Media, President Donald J. Trump alleges that during the 2016 Presidential campaign, President Barack Hussein Obama had Trump Tower in New York wiretapped.  Later, this turned out to be true.  The Obama administration wiretapped loads of people connected to the Trump campaign.
  73. 2018 Sunday: To much anger around the world, in Salisbury, UK, former Russian intelligence agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulla suffer poisoning by a poison known to exist only in Russia, thereby showing the tie between the two and Vladimir Putin.   Elsewhere, FAKE NEWS reports that President Trump in a speech to GOP donors at Mar-a-Lago says that the 45th president congratulated communist Chinese President Xi Jinping on him ‘eliminating term limits,’ reporting that Mr. Trump wants to do the same thing as president of the United States.  Oh, really now…
  74. 2019 Monday: Crybaby Democrats announce yet another wide-ranging investigation into ‘corruption’ surrounding President Donald J.

  75. 2020 Wednesday: After the drubbing dished out by Joe Biden the previous day on Super Tuesday 2020, the midget Mike Bloomberg announces he is dropping out of the presidential race and will support former Vice President Biden.  Despite spending more than $600 million to BUY the nomination, he bows out of the race with only 53 delegates and ONE win, in American Samoa.  Meanwhile, Mr. Biden won Alabama, Arkansas, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia (566 delegates total) while the old commie, Bernie Sanders won California, Colorado, Utah, and Vermont (501 delegates total).  Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren won 61 total delegates from the start of the contest and could not even carry her home state.  She is a loser and should bow out of the race like Bloomberg did.  Elsewhere, the Chi-Com Virus continues to spread…
  76. 2020 Wednesday A: In Detroit, Michigan, member of the Motown act, the Supremes- Barbara Martin (1960-1962)- dies at age 76.
  77. 2021 Thursday: DAY 44 of the Biden Regime- what the heck is “Senile Joe” and his Chi-Com puppeteers up to today?  Stick around and uncover whatever plot they are trying to foist onto the American people.  You know it can’t be any good…House Democrats fled last night after voting on their bogus Marxist bills, claiming today would be a day when WHITE SUPREMACISTS LED BY DONALD TRUMP WERE GOING TO STORM THE CAPITOL.  Meanwhile, the Senate remains in Washington, D.C., doing its thing.  The Democrats are SO FULL OF FECAL MATTER…UPDATE on this story: NO WHITE SUPREMACISTS STORMED THE CAPITOL TODAY!
  78. 2021 Thursday A: In the aftermath of the passage of the “George Floyd Justice in Policing Act,” the one authored by Democratic-Communist lawmaker Karen Bass of California, the GOP is pointing out the fact that the law goes too far in neutering law enforcement by stripping officers of qualified immunity and slashing federal funding to police departments across the nation among other things.  Here is OUR opinion: IF YOU WANT TO SEE A RISE IN VIGILANTISM, STAR CHAMBERS, AND LAW ENFORCEMENT DOING WHAT LAW ENFORCEMENT MUST IN THE SHADOWS, THIS IS A GREAT WAY TO ENGINEER THIS.  We expect that local citizens and law enforcement officers will work together undercover eliminating threats to local communities.  It is what it is…likewise, American citizens will do what they must to protect our border. 
  79. 2021 Thursday B: In other Joe Biden news, we learn today from a leaked classified report that the Biden administration is incarcerating illegal alien minors longer than the law permits.  Where is all the outrage?   Even worse, the Biden administration FORBIDS ALL PRESS from visiting the illegal alien holding pens.  Porque?  Add to that the fact that the Dems are NOT enforcing any Chinese Virus restrictions on the tidal wave of illegal aliens crossing the border should tell everyone that the Chi-Vi is little more than a political scam. 
  80. 2021 Thursday C: In other ‘Joe Biden’ news, he is now the first president in nearly a century NOT to hold any solo press conferences within 5-7 weeks of assuming office.  Joe Biden has done NOT a single press conference on his own.  This should confirm to everyone that senile Joe is a vegetable, that we have a vegetable for a commander-in-chief.  Wow.  Next- in other Joe Biden news, his pick for Pentagon policy adviser, an Obama-Biden retread, a member of the “C” team- Colin Kahl- said in a 2019 interview that the “GOP is the party of ethnic cleansing.”  Wow.  Joe sure knows how to pick them.
  81. 2021 Thursday C: Meanwhile leaked reports from the FBI go against what ‘esteemed Director’ Christopher Wray said during his testimony this week that there was NO armed insurrection at the nation’s capital on January 6, 2021, which is yet another rebuttal of Democratic-Socialist claims.  Alas, the riots predicted to occur today, the one that caused House Democratic-Socialists to flee to safe zones across the country have so far not occurred.  What a load of political theater crap.
  82. 2021 Thursday D:  Tennessee law enforcement officials report the results from a months’ long investigation into missing children within the borders of their state what with the successful recovery of at least 150 children from a total of around 239.  God bless you.  We must fund law enforcement.   In other ‘law enforcement’ news, the father of Michael Brown is demanding $20 million from the racist Black Lives Matter group who came to prominence burning down Ferguson, Missouri, years ago after the ignorant kid assaulted a police officer and got himself shot.  We don’t think pop is going to receive a dime.  Like Cindy Sheehan, he has NO more value to the Marxist group.
  83. 2021 Thursday E: The Democratic-Socialist-controlled U.S. Senate is holding the passage of the $1.9 trillion Chinese Virus ‘relief bill’ up as they seek ways to lighten the cost of Biden’s PORKULUS.  Billions of dollars of the previous ‘relief bill’ are still sitting unused so what the f**k?  In other U.S. Senate news, Senator Roger Marshall, R-KS, says ‘the real victims of the Chi-Com Bat Virus are children, children being isolated in their homes due to the oppressive lockdowns and restrictions in many parts of the country.’  Let’s lift them NOW!  Speaking of lockdowns and restriction, Ohioans are asking WHY Governor Mike DeWine, RINO, won’t lift the restrictions like Texas and Mississippi are?  Vote the bum out of office!  Next, Republican senators have authored a bill for term limits on all federal officeholders.  Come on, Chuck, hold some hearings on that one…
  84. 2021 Thursday F: The Customs and Border Patrol announces that the illegals crammed into the ‘clown car-like SUV’ that collided with a semi-tractor-and-trailer eight miles north of Calexico managed to come through a large gap cut into the border wall and were speeding north when the dumbasses collided with the truck killing at least 15 of the 27 illegal aliens stuffed inside the vehicle.  Did the Biden administration cut the hole in the fence?  We await further information.   Note- this is WHY we need vehicle traps, anti-personnel trenches, foo gas pits, and minefields.  It’s an invasion, folks, an invasion.
  85. 2021 Thursday G: Famed Tiger King- Joe Exotic- has hired new attorneys so he can take another crack at having his sentence for attempted murder overturned.  We wish him luck.  Meanwhile, as the Cancel Culture (NOTE- the AICPENDBLOG.COM cancels the cancel culture) continues taking names and numbers, Dr. Seuss- recently ‘canceled’- sees his books rise to all-time high sales as the demand for them skyrockets.  A full set of around 58 Dr. Seuss books- including the banned ones- sells for a cool $999.99 at Amazon.com.   Anything Cancel Culture cancels typically increases in value.
  86. 2021 Thursday H: Former Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams slams the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci on his two-shot COVID-19 plan.  Meanwhile, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci now says thing ‘might not get back to normal March 2022.’  Fascinating how the goalposts continue moving with this schmeckel.   Elsewhere, numerous Catholic bishops are now blasting the Johnson & Johnson Chi-Com Virus vaccine as ‘morally compromised’ seeing as how cells culled from abortions are involved in both the manufacturing and testing of the anti-Chi-Com Wuhan Virus.  We would not take this s**t.  In other COVID-19 bat and pangolin news, a report suggests that locales in which a high proportion of the population is obese (which does not require much to receive a declaration as such), deaths are ten-times higher.   Finally, after Joe Biden labeled Texas and Mississippi as being ‘Neanderthals’ for throwing their societies open, both Texas Governor Greg Abbott and Missouri Senator Josh Hawley return fire and label senile Old Joe as the ‘Neanderthal’ for not knowing what the f**k he’s even doing.  Joe- we have your Neanderthal swinging.
  87. 2021 Thursday I: GOP lawmakers continue speaking out against H.R. 1, the so-called “For the People Act” which is really the “Democrats in Perpetual Power Act,” because it’s nothing to do with voting rights but about circumventing voting rights as numerous states did during the November 2020 Elections.  Representative Scott DesJarlais, Tennessee’s 4th congressional district, says that the ‘Democrats have changed the rules of the game to win elections.’  Likewise, Representative Jim Jordan, R-OH, says the Democrats are ‘codifying election fraud’ via H.R. 1.  Speaking of the 2020 Elections and the upcoming 2024 Presidential Election, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp now says he will support President Donald J. Trump?  What?  Another rat trying to save his hide (like Mitch McConnell) by now rallying to President Trump after throwing him under the bus?  Kemp won’t be governor after November 2022 because Doug Collins is going to beat him like an old Green Stamps drum.
  88. 2021 Thursday J: Some news sources are suggesting that Mike Pompeo could seek the 2024 GOP presidential nomination IF Donald Trump should not run for office.  In other GOP news, state Republican lawmakers are working to neutralize any prohibitions of the Biden administration imposed on Second Amendment rights.  God bless you.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump slams the Wall Street Journal by noting they have lost ‘great credibility.’   Next, famed U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger says that ‘Joe Biden would be wise to hang onto the Trump administration’s successes with Israel and various Arab states such as Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, Morocco, and Sudan.’  We expect senile old Joe to spend all his time kissing the derrieres of the Iranians and the Palestinians.   
  89. 2021 Thursday K: Cochise County, Arizona, Sheriff Mark Dannels says that ‘Joe Biden’s pullback from the U.S.-Mexico border is creating highways for Mexican cartels to transport drugs, human beings and possibly even terrorists into the United States.’  Sheriff Bill Waybourn of Tarrant County, Texas told Chris Salcido of Newsmax that the cartels are insinuating criminals and thugs into the United States.   Representative Andy Biggs, R-AZ, says DHS Secretary Mayorkas totally wrong, that border officials are being swamped by the massive invasion of illegal aliens.  Again, we say, “Light ‘em up,’ we must do what we must to save the country.
  90. 2021 Thursday L: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 115,467,624 confirmed cases, +470,711, 2,565,369, confirmed deaths, +10,455, and 65,296,409 confirmed recoveries, +262,009.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,066,212 confirmed cases, up 68,142 from yesterday’s reporting, 523,852 confirmed deaths, UP 2,348, and 96,781,572 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile drooling POS.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 195,375 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, STOP SENDING U.S. vaccines overseas, use them here at home you reprobate scumbag.  NOT OUR PRESIDENT!  (Note- send the J & J vaccine overseas).
  91. 2021 Thursday M: 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: 3,582,359 confirmed cases, 53,099 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,000 confirmed cases, 441 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries- NOTE: Hawaii finally has an update.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 345,271 confirmed cases, 5,075 confirmed deaths (same as yesterday), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Nevada: currently, they have 295,082 confirmed cases, 5,085 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 789,485 confirmed cases, 5,803 confirmed deaths, and 741,167 confirmed recoveries.  Alabama not quite ready to leap onto the “NO MASK MANDATE” other southern states are doing.   Meanwhile, Larry Kudlow- Donald Trump’s economic adviser Larry Kudlow- says the ‘key to reopening the U.S. economy is vaccinations, not multi-trillion-dollar COVID-19 relief bills.’  Amen.   Next, the leader of Ontario, Canada, is disappointed that Joe Biden is not sharing the Wuhan Virus vaccine with the Canucks.   Finally, the CEO for Warnermedia issues an apology for saying the China Virus pandemic has ‘been really good for our ratings.’  Insensitive pig.   (Note: President Jair Bolsonaro tells the Brazilian people that following the record numbers of Chi-Vi deaths, to ‘stop whining’).
  92. 2021 Thursday N: Friends, we have predicted a collapse of stock markets and commodities by early summer.  Here we are, stocks and commodities are beginning the downward slide thanks to the accumulated policies of ‘President Joe Biden’ and the Democrats.  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,924.14, DOWN 345.95 points (-1.11%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,723.47, DOWN 274.28 points (-2.11%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,768.48, DOWN 51.25 points (-1.34%).  The price of GOLD is $1,694.60 per troy oz., -6.10 (-0.36%) while the price of SILVER is $25.36 per troy ounce, -0.10 (-0.40%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,130.00 per troy oz, -5.30 (-0.47%) while the price of COPPER is $3.95 per pound, -0.03 (-0.78%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,342.80 per troy oz, -11.60 (-0.49%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $64.27 per barrel, +0.44 (+0.69%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 21.13.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000021.   In Taiwanese dollars, one greenback equals 27.81. 
  93. 2021 Thursday O: Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu vows to ‘stand against the world fighting the Iranian nuclear deal.’  Speaking of that, Israel has dispatched a submarine or two to the Persian Gulf after the Iranians attacked an Israeli-owned cargo vessel.  The Biden Administration is slapping sanctions on Myanmar’s military and government leaders.  Lot of good those will do.  Elsewhere, Bytedance is working on a Clubhouse-like app for its Chi-Com users.  Next, a Senate panel approves the nomination of Debra Haaland to become the next secretary of the U.S. Department of the Interior.
  94. 2022 Thursday: Stick around for the latest…

WE THANK EVERYONE FOR JOINING US AT WORDPRESS.COM AND FOR AIDING US IN CONTINUING TO DO THE WORK WE TOOK UPON OURSELVES MORE THAN A DECADE AGO

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

ENDNOTES:

[i] We are unclear as to when we will begin promoting the music of the legendary British rock band, YES, but when we do, you will be the first to know.  This offering will go as long as- if not longer- than the Beatles and their individual members.   Please stay tuned.

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

[iii] We began promoting the music of the greatest British blues rock band, the Climax Blues Band, beginning on Monday, 16-September-2019 through Sunday, 27-October-2019.  This included the solo efforts of Pete Haycock and Colin Cooper.  We hope you will check them out and add them to your collection.

[iv] 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.

[v] Not sure when we will present the music of this famed Canadian American rock band but when we do, you will be the first to know.  The Band ranks among the all-time greatest rock bands of the 1960s and 1970s.  You won’t want to miss them.

[vi] NO economic plan put forth by President Barack Obama over his eight years in office ever generated the promised results.  It was not until Donald Trump became president that the economy began going like gangbusters.  The proof of how inept the Obama administration was is in the way in 2020 Obama tries to take credit for the Trump economy, claiming that it was ‘his.’  No, Mr. Obama, you did NOTHING to create the economy we are now enjoying.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

Trump’s citizenship test for illegal fence-jumpers and river-swimmers.  Speaking of illegal aliens, ICE reports that illegal aliens are getting their Chi-Vi vaccines ahead of U.S. citizens.  Representative Debbie Lesko, R-AZ, is upset about this, saying that seniors call her office every day to discover when they will be able to receive their vaccines.  Nope, we must immunize illegal aliens and felons first.  Another Arizona lawmaker, Congressman Andy Biggs, Republican, says there is ‘an explosion of unaccompanied illegal alien minors at the border.’  We encourage laying in of minefields. 
  77. 2021 Monday A: As Joe Biden nominee confirmations continue, Senator Susan Collins, RINO-Maine, says she WON’T vote to confirm OMB nominee Neera Tanden for hateful attacks on Republicans.  Meanwhile, Judge Merrick Garland, Joe Biden’s nominee for attorney-general is shagging questions today in the U.S. Senate.  He claims that ‘politics won’t influence or affect criminal probes into scumbags such as Hunter Biden.’  We shall see.   Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, slams Judge Garland for not labeling James Comey as a ‘TERRIBLE’ FBI director.  Next, the White House calls for a ‘moment of silence’ (what a load of festering fecal matter) over hitting the dubious benchmark of more than half-a-million deaths.  (Please see our ‘VID statistics later today so you can see just how many people have succumbed to the Wuhan Virus Crisis while Joe Biden’s been in the White House.  It’s a whole lot, folks…).  Finally, New Jersey’s governor signs a bill establishing the framework for legal pakalolo in his state.
  78. 2021 Monday B: Chi-Com news- Researchers conclude that the Chi-Coms copied NSA spyware code which should surprise NO one.  In other SHOCKING NEWS, the infamous Wuhan Institute of Virology is going to continue receiving U.S. taxpayers’ dollars for continued research into bat viruses and other evil stuff.  WHY are we funding the Chi-Com research, ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden, especially when they are the ones who caused the global pandemic, whether through ineptitude or on purpose?  What’s more, we should be doing our own biowarfare research, not giving the Chi-Coms our money.  Someone, please impeach and remove Joe Biden NOW.  In other Chi-Com-related news, Representative Bill Johnson says, ‘Joe Biden’s energy policies show weakness on the Chi-Coms human rights abuses.’  After all, ‘Pro-China Joe’ shut the Keystone XL pipeline down on Day No. 1 so that oil will be flowing west from Canada’s coast to mainland China.  Finally, the Chi-Coms are urging their stooge in the White House to lift all trade sanctions and tariffs and to show Beijing some ‘goodwill.’  F**k Beijing.
  79. 2021 Monday C: The Roberts Supreme Court continues to show it’s in league with the Washington, D.C. swamp when Roberts says, ‘it’s okay for New York prosecutors to get their grubby hands-on Donald J. Trump’s tax records as far back as 2011.  We also hear that Associate Justice Clarence Thomas blasted Roberts and other liberal justices for their unwillingness to hear cases related to the theft of the 2020 Presidential Election.   SCOTUS could also hear cases on various states’ new laws restricting abortion rights within their borders.  We know how John Roberts will rule now don’t we? 
  80. 2021 Monday D: Corrupt (allegedly) Dominion Voting Systems is suing My Pillow’s Mike Lindell for his blowing the lid off the can regarding Dominion’s and associated company, Smartmatic’s hand in STEALING the 2020 Presidential Election as well as various other elections around the country.   Elsewhere, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, she’s whose face droops down on one side, is funneling $300,000 to help gerrymandering efforts after condemning Republicans for gerrymandering districts in Red States.  Say it ain’t so, Nancy!
  81. 2021 Monday E: The Harris administration, uh, the ‘Biden administration’ is downplaying the rhetoric on Iran, hoping the Iranians will return to the flawed JCPOA- the Iran nuclear ‘deal.’  Speaking of the Iranians, the head of the IAEA says Iran is ‘going to limit access to its nuclear programs.’  Hmmm, why would this be?  Speaking of Iran, eight rockets were fired at the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad’s Green Zone today.   Also speaking of Iran, U.S. families of detained Americans in that hellish, pro-jihad country are begging the ‘Biden administration’ to do something to get their family members home.  Come on, Joe, do something about getting these people repatriated to the U.S.
  82. 2021 Monday F: An NBC poll shows- much to their horror- that blue collar workers of all colors flocked to President Donald J. Trump.  Speaking of President Trump, when he gives the keynote address at CPAC this week, with a ‘show of force,’ he’s going to place his grip onto the GOP.  The Grand Old Party is Trump’s party, and we look forward to seeing “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell’s RINO picks fall in one election after another.  McConnell must be impeached and removed from office.   In other news, a high school senior in New York City is battling the Di Blasio Regime over its closure of Trump Corporation-operated ice-skating rinks.  In other news, Prime Minister Boris Johnson, aka “BoJo,” says that all UK schools should be reopened by March 8.  Excellent.  IF only U.S. educators would follow suit.
  83. 2021 Monday G: The United States Marine Corps is going to substitute ‘board games’ for its upcoming March military drills so as to create ‘smart infantry.’  Sounds like a load of bull crap to us, a stinking load of bull crap.  Meanwhile, 170 of 254 counties in Texas are struggling with winter-related storms and power outages- fresh water is difficult by which to come.  Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer blames Texas for what’s happened to it saying they chose to go alone on energy and now they must sleep in the bed they made.’  Good, Chuck, good.  What a POS.  In other news, the family of slain Nation of Islam leader Malcolm X (allegedly, the Reverend Louis Farrakhan is the man who ordered the hit) wants the case reopened so the law can find and punish his murderers.  Find Reverend Louie and ask HIM.   Elsewhere, United Airlines is pulling 24 of it Boeing 777 airliners out of use to double check the engines.   Finally, Joe Biden says smaller firms will have exclusive PPP access over the next two weeks.
  84. 2021 Monday H: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 111,434,139 confirmed cases, +165,977, 2,467,481 confirmed deaths, +3,462, and 62,896,305 confirmed recoveries, +149,843.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 28,409,269 confirmed cases, up 84,306 from yesterday’s reporting, 504,012 confirmed deaths, UP 1,519, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- no update in more than four weeks- what’s up with that? NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 174,411 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S. which means, you have more than half of what Trump had from the beginning of the outbreak which means you are a failure like Andrew “Killer” Cuomo.  Joe, YOU claimed you had a plan to defeat the communist virus, what the hell are YOU going to do about it- sit on your ass and blame everything on Donald Trump.
  85. 2021 Monday 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: 3,531,979 confirmed cases, 49,380 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,778 confirmed cases, 431 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 336,950 confirmed cases, 4,886 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. real estate- Louisiana: currently, they have 426,644 confirmed cases, 9,477 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 750,043 confirmed cases, 5,577 confirmed deaths, and 704,018 confirmed recoveries.   
  86. 2021 Monday J:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,521.69, UP 27.37 points (+0.087%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,533.05, DOWN 341.42 points (-2.46%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,876.50, DOWN 30.21 points (-0.77%).  The price of GOLD is $1,809.10 per troy oz., +0.70 (+0.04%) while the price of SILVER is $28.21 per troy ounce, +0.13 (+0.45%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,283.10 per troy oz, +0.80 (+0.06%) while the price of COPPER is $4.15 per pound, +0.01 (+0.17%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,402.90 per troy oz, +23.10 (+0.97%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $62.19 per barrel, +0.49 (+0.79%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.73.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.
  87.  2021 Monday K: Following an Australian news anchor pointing out the obvious- that the ‘leader of the Free World (Joe Biden) seems to be cognitively disabled,’ Facebook bans Australian citizens from using its platform.  WTF?  Everyone knows that ‘Pro-China Joe’ is not there.  He demonstrates it every day and the fact that Kamala Harris is making phone calls to foreign leaders should worry the hell out of everyone.  Not only is the woman easily bought, but she’s also not that bright so the American people must begin demanding an accounting of what the Democrats did during the 2020 Presidential Election.   Meanwhile, the National Spelling Bee will return but in a mostly virtual format.  Elsewhere, the liberal mainstream media is going after Newsmax, One America News, and Fox News.  They cannot stand for free-flowing speech.
  88. 2022 Tuesday: Let’s see what chicanery ensues today…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Unlike many of their contemporaries, Fairport Convention had an attitude of ‘never say die’ and thus they continued their labors in the studio and on the road.  Today’s studio album, “Shuffle and Go,” came out on February 21, 2020, and the fans hailed it as a beautiful new effort with 13 glorious tracks, all of which being originals and the other four covers.  The band features the quintet of 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).  Again, we encourage everyone to visit their favorite nearest site for the absolute best in music, give it a good listen, and then see if you want to add it to your never-ending, always-growing collection like us.  We think you will be glad you did.

2021 Saturday D: Note- Chef Bea O’Malley- lifelong member of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day- says “IF Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo has to use a ‘rap cartoon’ to appeal to us black folks to get the Chi-Vi vaccine, it’s all the more reason why ALL black folks should avoid this like a cross-burning in McKittrick, California, on a Friday night.”

  62. 2016 Saturday: In the South Carolina GOP Primary, Donald Trump wins with 32./5% of the vote.  In the Democratic Primary in Nevada, Hillary Clinton wins big with 52.6% of the vote.  She smoked Bernie Sanders good!  Finally, Gov. Jeb Bush suspends his bid to win the 2016 GOP presidential nomination on this date.  Say it ain’t so, Jeb!
  63. 2017 Monday: Government officials in the South Sudanese state of Unity declare a famine which affects 4.9 million people.  Meanwhile, Democrats and other assorted and sundry anti-Trumpers turn out in the streets, screaming, “NOT MY PRESIDENT!  NOT MY PRESIDENT!”  WTF is wrong with these people?  What’s wrong with them is the fact that they are communists, and many are members of various rent-a-mobs.  It is what it is.  Elsewhere, across the Atlantic in Great Britain, millions turn out in the streets to protest over there- coincidence?  Nope.  Still, the British government is considering canceling his upcoming state visit because they’ve bought into the bogus Trump-Russia collusion scam.
  64. 2018 Tuesday: During London Fashion Week, Queen Elizabeth II makes a surprise appearance.  Meanwhile, in the lovely socialist hellhole of Venezuela, the government of Nicolas Maduro announces the creation of its own virtual currency, the petro, to counteract their ongoing financial crisis.  Folks, nothing is going to help until the people overthrow the communist thugs destroying their country. 
  65. 2019 Wednesday: Sadly, Payless ShoeSource files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy protections and announces plans to shutter all its stores in the United States.  Payless has been a staple of American retail for decades so it’s extremely sad to see them vanish.   Speaking of American business giants, Ford Motor Company announces it will stop selling trucks in South America.  Guess the Japanese are taking over down there.
  66. 2020 Thursday: Judge Amy Berman Jackson- an Obama judge- gave Roger Stone- friend and confidant of President Donald J. Trump a 40-month sentence for lying before Congress and a few misguided, unfortunate tweets.  The gist of all this is that conservatives cannot laugh or joke because liberals will charge them with heinous crimes and do everything possible to send them to prison, hopefully, to die there if possible.  Meanwhile, President Trump speaks to a crowd of freed prisoners and slams what is happening to Stone.  Originally, Stone faced a possible sentence of 7-9 years in prison for doing practically nothing but that is how things now are in the United States of America.  Meanwhile, Stone’s defense team is seeking a new trial seeing as how the foreman of the jury, Tomeka Hart, is a raving lunatic leftist who hates Trump and said numerous prejudicial things against Stone and Trump in social media and then lied to Judge Jackson, claiming she could be ‘impartial.’  We think this ho needs to go to prison herself.  Finally, fallout from the previous night’s NBC-TV Democratic debate shows Michael Bloomberg at the bottom of the Democratic cesspool following a dismal debate performance.  Sad.
  67. 2021 Saturday: Day 32 of the Biden Regime.  First, Senator Joe Manchin, D-West Virginia, says he plans to vote ‘NO’ on Joe Biden’s pick to head the White House Office of Management and Budget based on her past bigoted comments towards Republicans.   Next, following Newsmax’ Greg Kelly commenting on one of Joe Biden’s rescue dogs’ appearance, social media went berserk criticizing Mr. Kelly.  What Kelly said was true- the dog needs veterinarian care and a good bath.  ASAP.   Next, the earpiece in Joe Biden’s ear has him say, ‘things could be back to normal by 2022.’  F—k you, Joe, things are going to go back to normal NOW.  We are not going to put up with this bull crap much longer.  #OpenUpNow!  The earpiece also tells Joe Biden to ‘reassure the American people the vaccines are safe,’ the ones he claims did not exist prior to him becoming president.
  68. 2021 Saturday A: Republican Senator Tom Cotton proposes a bill with which to cut the Chi-Coms out of Hollywood.  Everyone knows the Chi-Coms have infested Hollywood as you cannot miss Chi-Com companies in the opening credits anymore.   Meanwhile, United Airlines is trying to discover which one of its employees spilled the beans on the family of Ted Cruz’s recent vacation to Cancun, Mexico.  Like they care.  Next, a GOP group plans on using $25 million to enable Republicans to win back the House in 2022.  In other GOP news, Representative Madison Cawthorne tells Newsmax that the ‘Second Amendment is NOT about hunting but about having the ability to topple a tyrannical government.’  Elsewhere, Representative Devin Nunes, R-CA, also informs Newsmax that the ‘Dems think they’re in Hollywood and that the National Guard are extras on a filmset.’  It’s time for those troops to return home and for the fences to come down.  The ONLY reason the fences remain UP and the troops patrol the streets of Washington, D.C., is because they KNOW they did not win the 2020 Presidential Election.  Period.   Finally, U.S. Congressman Tom Reed, R-NY, says he’s eyeing a potential run against failed Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo.  Hell, AOC could beat this piece of dog s**t hands down.
  69. 2021 Saturday B:  The storms in Texas have killed loads of people, many of whom may not be known for weeks what with people freezing to death because of lack of electricity, natural gas, and mishaps with propane and generator exhausts.  Add to that the fact that people WITH power are finding they have five-figure power bills.  Insane.  Joe Biden authorizes aid for Texas and mumbles something stupid about visiting Texas ‘sometime soon.’  Elsewhere, Ohio State University says it’s considering a debt-free degree.  Here is how you do it- instead of forcing students to take on massive quantities of debt for a degree, how about the schools take 6-percent of their annual income for- say- 30 years or until the debt is paid.  After all, everyone needs to earn money to pay bills.  Once the debt is paid, the former students can then donate time back to the universities to educate the next generation.  Saddling people with hundreds of thousands of dollars of school debt is insane and must stop while at the same time, universities have expenses, too.
  70. 2021 Saturday C: COVID-19 Daily Update:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 110,903,820 confirmed cases, +356,790, 2,456,069, confirmed deaths, +8,454, and 62,511,666 confirmed recoveries, +250,283.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 28,260,716 confirmed cases, up 84,288 from yesterday’s reporting, 500,833 confirmed deaths, UP 2,870, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- NO more updates on this number thanks to Joe Biden, going on for nearly as long as #46 has been in the White House.  Coincidence?  You be the judge. 
  71. 2021 Saturday D: NOTE- in the White House 32 DAYS, apparently the U.S. will NO longer report the number of recoveries.  Shame on you, Chi-Com Joe.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 171,732 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, talk is cheap, what are YOU going to do about it?  YOU are a worse murderer than Andrew “Killer” Cuomo is in the Empire State- he’s only killed 46,233 people, half of them in nursing homes.   Speaking of this fool who threatens ALL critics with ‘you’ll be sleeping with the fishes tonight,’ he still won’t apologize for the deaths his criminal policies caused.    Note- Chef Bea O’Malley- lifelong member of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day- says “IF Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo has to use a ‘rap cartoon’ to appeal to us black folks to get the Chi-Vi vaccine, it’s all the more reason why ALL black folks should avoid this like a cross-burning in McKittrick, California, on a Friday night.”  Although she does not live in New York, the fact that this drooling mongoloid talks DOWN to black folks and encourages them to get the vaccine is enough reason to send every black and brown person to go running in the other direction.  Thank you, Bea.
  72. 2021 Saturday E: 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: 3,521,418 confirmed cases, 48,842 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,778 confirmed cases, 430 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 336,184 confirmed cases, 4,886 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the country: Alabama.  Currently, they have 485,986 confirmed cases, 9,590 confirmed deaths, but NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 744,513 confirmed cases, 5,526 confirmed deaths, and 693,730 confirmed recoveries.  For the heck of it, let’s look at one other country: Colombia.  Currently, they have  2.217,001 confirmed cases, 58,511 confirmed deaths, and 2,110,562 confirmed recoveries.   In other Beijing Bat Bug news, Pfizer seeks to store their vaccines at less frigid temperatures with which to ease coordination.
  73. 2021 Saturday F: In the Russian arctic, the Nornickel processing plant partially collapses killing three workers and wounding several others.   Speaking of Vladimir Putin’s Russia, Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny loses his appeal and won’t be leaving prison anytime soon.  YOU should never have returned to the former USSR as the next time they poison you, you won’t be taken to Germany for treatment.  Elsewhere, a top official from the UN International Atomic Energy Agency- aka IAEA- is heading to Iran to visit with them regarding the jump-started JCPOA.  Meanwhile, a UN report says that Erik Prince violated an arms embargo on Libya’s rebel groups by shipping them weapons and mercenaries.   In other news, Joe Biden, and Canada’s Justin Trudeau plan to have a ‘virtual summit’ so they can discuss common shared interests between our two countries- like getting the Keystone XL Pipeline up and running again?  We can only hope.
  74. 2021 Saturday G: Having mentioned Texas’ energy grid collapse and the winter storms trashing the area, Representative August Pfluger, R-TX, says that ‘propping up solar and wind is what has caused problems in Texas.’  He also mentions that Joe Biden only approved disaster declaration for 77 of the 254 counties in the Lone Star State when in fact, the declaration of disaster should be for every county in the state.  We agree.  We have friends in Texas and all of them say things are extremely bad there.  Elsewhere, we learn that the left-wing U.S. Department of Justice is investigating seven police officers from five police departments across the country because these people happened to have been in Washington, D.C., on January 6, 2021.  Next, famed attorney and legal professor Dr. Alan Dershowitz tells Newsmax TV that the liberals have become ‘radical and intolerant.’  To us, this means they have become communists.  Time to fight back.  
  75. 2021 Saturday H: Stick around for tonight’s Super Lotto and Powerball drawings.  Here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3536 with a prize of $22 million on the line: 02, 05, 08, 21, 45, and Mega 11.  Out of 118,110 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $39,709.  The winning ticket was sold at Dolce Expresso in San Jose, CA 95112.  Next, here are the results for tonight’s Powerball Drawing #822 with a $78 million prize on the line: 04, 08, 22, 32, 58, and Powerball 04.  Out of 59,166 winning tickets, the highest winners were two people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $29,272 apiece. 
  76. 2022 Sunday: Everyone knows the drill…

ENDNOTES:

[v] We promoted the music of the great California rock band, Spirit- and the music of its members- beginning on Monday, 18-June-2012 through Friday, 10-August-2012.  We hope you will seek this band out and add it to your growing collection of top-quality rock music. This included the music of Jo Jo Gunne.

[vi] We truly look forward to promoting the music of Cheap Trick in the next decade or so.

  72. 2021 Monday: As Joe Biden continues eliminating his predecessor’s legacy, he announces today that he is going to do something truly stupid and that is to remove the “anarchist jurisdiction’ label from crap-hole cities such as New York City, Portland, Oregon, and Seattle that limit federal funds to these cities overrun with Antifa and BLM human fecal matter and which do nothing about it.  Bet you feel really good, don’t you, Joe?  Next, Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers considers legislation that will legalize pot.  Elsewhere, California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom’s approval ratings and popularity numbers are approaching single digits as Californians of all parties seek to oust this POS loser from office via recall.  Two new challengers are entering the race to replace him in the recall election- entrepreneur Major Williams and businessman John Cox. 
  73. 2021 Monday A: With re-impeachment looming tomorrow, Republicans plan on showing how it is ‘unconstitutional.’  Folks, impeaching someone is NOT a president and without the chief justice of the United States Supreme Court calling balls and strikes, it is little more than politics, a circus, a load of steaming hog hooey.  Everyone participating in this charade must be removed from office in upcoming elections.   Elsewhere, Missouri freshman Congresswoman Cori Bush sides with rioting inmates over law enforcement and the rule of law.  Recall this dimwit.   Speaking of the Democrat losers, folks- there are photos of House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi walking around metal detectors in the halls of Congress.  Someone hit her with the $5,000 fine she imposed on her members for committing such an egregious act.   Moreover, speaking of Democrat losers, the little dimwit Senator Chris Murphy, D-Connecticut, says, “There is NO comparison between the words of lunatic Congresswoman “Gasoline Maxine” Waters of California and those of Donald J. Trump.  Hence why you are rated among the stupider members of the U.S. Senate, Mr. Murphy.
  74. 2021 Monday B: Biden press secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki dismisses questions about impending job losses over the coming raising of the federal minimum wage of $15 per hour.  She laughed it off.  Speaking of such idiocy, U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen blows off fears of coming double-digit inflation due to the oncoming $1.9 trillion Biden stimulus plan as well as near-zero interest rates.  Folks, we point it out every day- expect the country to be in the tank by mid-summer thanks to (1) a jacked up minimum wage; (2) pandemic politics; and (3) massive numbers of illegal aliens who are low-to-no-skilled taking American jobs and receiving wages under the table.  Someone else who is unhappy with the Biden administration is AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, someone whom we thought was going to endorse Donald J. Trump.  He is unhappy about the all the job losses that have already occurred under the 46th president as well as the millions to come.  We told you so, Mr. Trumka.  You could have supported President Trump and continued seeing your members enjoy rising wages, better benefits, and increased prosperity.  
  75. 2021 Monday C: In foreign news and issues, Joe Biden’s claims of being ‘tough on communist China are met with skepticism, if not outright laughter.  He will do nothing.  Next, Joe Biden’s stupid border policies are causing massive caravans heading to the U.S. borders and thousands of illegal aliens flooding into the U.S.  Time to start laying minefields along that border, folks.  Meanwhile, following the arrest of one of its press corps in communist China, Australia calls other reporters home.  NOW.   Elsewhere, after receiving the Sputnik V Chi-Vi vaccine from Russia, the Grand Ayatollah Ali Khamenei warns Iranians citizens to ‘avoid those who have gotten the vaccines because they’ve become homosexuals.’  Say what?  Vladimir Putin, what the hell are YOU doing to Iran?   Finally, Saudi Arabia has shot down four recent weaponized drones crossing into its airspace from Yemen where the Houthi rebels are running amok.  Neutron bombs, folks, that’s the answer for the Houthis.
  76. 2021 Monday D: Senator Lindsey Graham, labeled “Lady G” by press secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki- a homosexual slur- urges the Biden administration NOT to abandon all of his predecessor’s foreign policies just because you don’t like their creator.  Lindsey, Biden is getting rid of EVERYTHING.  You know it, we know it, hell, everyone knows it.  Speaking of RINO senators, Alabama Senator Richard Shelby says he ‘won’t seek another term’ which leaves it open for Jeff Sessions to come back- again.  Elsewhere, following a weekend in which two were killed and 20 shot in Chicago, Windy City Mayor Lori Lightfoot announces that Chi-Town and the teachers’ union have reached an agreement with which to reopen the schools and to get the little tykes back into class.    Finally, Texas Republican Congressman Ron Wright, died from a combination of cancer and the ‘VID;’ we know the COVID-19 will be the cause of death.
  77. 2021 Monday E: Two GOP congressmen have offered up the Oversight Members and Relatives Act- the OMAR Act- because members of congress such as Ilhan Omar, D-MN, and ‘Gasoline Maxine’ Waters have poured millions of dollars from their campaign coffers into the pockets of their family members.  Rep. Tom Tiffany, R-WI, and Rep. Mike Gallagher, R-WI, said it was time for an act such as this.  We agree.  Enough with all these scoundrels enriching themselves and their families at the taxpayers’ expense.  Speaking of self-enrichment, Dr. Vivek Murthy, Joe Biden’s pick for surgeon-general has made hundreds of thousands of dollars in speaking fees from- wait, you guessed it- BIG HEALTHCARE.  Wow.  Does it ever end?   Meanwhile, Tampa Bay’s Democrat Mayor Jane Castor says she is ‘appalled that citizens of her community were without masks during the Super Bowl and that law enforcement will identify the offenders and will do something about it once the scumbags are identified.’  Wow.  Another wannabe Gretchen Whitmer on the loose…
  78. 2021 Monday F: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 106,314,695 confirmed cases, +300,0472 2,320,720, confirmed deaths, +6,928, and 59,303,299 confirmed recoveries, +231,945.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 27,319,269 confirmed cases, up 67,092 from yesterday’s reporting, 468,379 confirmed deaths, UP 1,040, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- no update in more than two weeks- what’s up with that? NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 138,473 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, YOU claimed you had a plan to defeat the communist virus, what the hell are YOU going to do about it- sit on your ass and blame everything on Donald Trump.
  79. 2021 Monday G: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,417,099 confirmed cases, 44,159 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,468 confirmed cases, 418 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 323,947 confirmed cases, 4,531 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. real estate- Pennsylvania: currently, they have 875,557 confirmed cases, 22,493 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 696,528 confirmed cases, 5,171 confirmed deaths, and 619,100 confirmed recoveries.   
  80. 2021 Monday H:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,385.76, UP 237.52 points (+0.76%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,987.64, UP 131.35 points (+0.95%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,915.59, UP 28.76 points (+0.74%).  The reason for the UP markets is because these morons are anticipating the passage of Biden’s ‘COVID-19 relief/stimulus package which is going to put the country into still deeper debt.  Go figure.  The price of GOLD is $1,832.40 per troy oz., -1.90 (-0.10%) while the price of SILVER is $27.38 per troy ounce, -0.20 (-0.73%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,172.50 per troy oz, -2.70 (-0.23%) while the price of COPPER is $3.68 per pound, +0.01 (+0.29%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,342.50 per troy oz, -0.50 (-0.02%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $58.05 per barrel, +0.08 (+0.14%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.44 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.09.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000022.
  81. 2021 Monday I: We said it earlier today, but the Congressional Budget Office announced today that Joe Biden’s $15-hour minimum wage is going to cost the country another 1.4 million jobs- on the low end- once it goes into effect.  An AP Poll says that just 16-percent of Americans think U.S. democracy is in decent shape.  Another 45-percent said the country is not functioning as it should be while 80-percent said the rule of law, functioning judicial system, free and fair elections,
  82. 2021 Monday J: Meanwhile, former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley says, ‘Joe Biden’s transgender rules is a war on women.’  Amen.   Next, POS Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger is launching an investigation into that EVIL-EVIL-EVIL Trump for him trying to get this wonderful public servant to throw the election in his favor.  Whoa.  Friends, after listening to hours of people testifying before the Georgia Senate, the secretary of state should be doing time in the hoosegow.   Finally, New York prosecutors have dropped all charges against pardoned Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort- and they kept this poor man in solitary confinement.  EVIL.
  83. 2021 Monday K: There is talk that communist China and its thug leader Xi Jinping could face charges before the International Court for committing genocide against its Uighur minority, people who are imprisoned in concentration camps being made into ‘worthy citizens’ of Mao Zedong’s horrible hellhole.  A British legal firm working on behalf of human rights releases reams of evidence showing that what the Chi-Coms are doing in Xinjiang Province to their Muslim minorities is a disguised genocide of a thriving people.  Elsewhere, reports suggest that Kim Jong Un built up his nuclear weapons arsenal and missile systems with which to deliver said atomic weapons during the course of last year.  Uncle Joe Biden, what are YOU going to do about this threat?   Meanwhile, Fox News host Tucker Carlson reports that the Biden administration is not going to deport illegal aliens convicted of violent crimes including sex crimes.  And this senile old POS wants to be president of ALL the American people or so he promised.   Moreover, Tucker Carlson reports that illegal aliens are being dumped into U.S. neighborhoods without even being tested for COVID-19.  We have said this before, when the bodies start dropping, don’t be shocked.   Finally, whereas the U.S. was apprehending 1,200 illegal aliens at the border each day last year, we are now seeing more than 3,000 illegals trying to enter the country daily.  We say minefields, 50-caliber MG emplacements, and miles and miles and miles of concertina razor wire to augment the existing fence.  (Note- some of us support seeding the Rio Grande with baby alligators…)
  84. 2021 Monday L: Niccole Wallace at MSNBC believes that targeted drone strikes should be used against conservative Republicans in the United States who may not believe the 2020 Presidential Election was remotely fair.  I guess since most of us believe it was a load of festering crap, we had better start watching the skies overhead.  We already have more chem trails above our neighborhoods than ever before and NO one ever explains their purpose.  WTF is up?
  85. 2021 Monday M: In Henderson, Nevada, original Supreme (1959-2021)- Mary Wilson- from cardiovascular disease on this date; she was 76.
  86. 2022 Tuesday:  Mis amigos, stick around for the latest events…

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

Monday, February 08, 2021, Today in History Blog Post:   

WE THANK EVERYONE FOR JOINING US AT WORDPRESS.COM AND FOR AIDING US IN CONTINUING TO DO THE WORK WE TOOK UPON OURSELVES MORE THAN A DECADE AGO

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


Tuesday, February 08, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We offered the music of this famed West Coast band- the Grass Roots- beginning on Thursday, 06-February-2014 through Saturday, 22-February-2014.  We hope you will seek their music out by visiting whatever site you choose for the absolute best in rock music.  You will be glad you did.

[ii] We began promoting the music of Canned Heat on Sunday, 05-June-2011 through Sunday, 17-July-2011.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.

[iii] We hope to promote the music of the Doobie Brothers sometime before 2030.  We hope you will remain vigilant.

[iv] In an interesting note, many believe the coup in Turkey was engineered by Erdogan to get rid of his political enemies by engineering a coup d’ gras against him.  In 2021 in the United States, following a False Flag operation in which, Antifa-led mobs stormed Capitol Hill and ‘terrified’ lawmakers, the Democrats are doing the same going after every Trump supporter.  The only people in attendance at ‘Joe Biden’s inauguration’ were 27,000 National Guard members.  The Democrats who always say, “WALLS DON’T WORK,” put up walls all over Washington, D.C. and as of today, there are still 7,000 Guardsmen on scene protecting “Usurper Joe.”

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

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.

  51. 2015 Thursday: The Swiss National Bank has uncapped the Swiss franc against the euro, resulting in a rise in its currency value from 1.20 to 1.04 francs/euro; the bank also reduced interest rates from -.25% to -.75%, increasing costs to investors who store deposits.  Elsewhere, Belgium police kill two suspected terrorists near the city of Verviers.

  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.

012. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 12, 2022

2021 Tuesday I: The U.S. Department of Justice is probing ‘sedition conspiracies’ (they’re acting like this is somehow resembling the Civil War) surrounding the Capitol Hill 2021 storming last Wednesday, saying that somehow it is something we have never seen before. Folks, we were alive, well, and observant in the 1960s and the 1970s (and way before) and we remember the antiwar protests of those two decades. We also remember Puerto Rican communists attacking the Capitol…

  59. 2018 Friday: President Donald J. Trump’s White House physician, Dr. Ronny Jackson, declared him in “excellent health” after the president received his first checkup at Walter Reed military hospital.  Elsewhere, following the U.S. State Department cautioning U.S. citizens from traveling to Turkey due to arbitrary arrests and extended detentions over nothing, Turkey tells its citizens NOT to visit the United States.  Turkey used to be a decent country whereas now, they are a junior member of the Axis of Evil.
  60. 2019 Saturday: In the AFC Division Game, the Kansas City Chiefs blow out the Indianapolis Colts 31-13 to move to the AFC Championship Game while in the NFC Division Game, the Los Angeles Rams hold off the Dallas Cowboys 30-22.  Elsewhere, the federal government shutdown enters its 22nd day, becoming the longest shutdown of the government in U.S. history.  Of course, President Donald J.

  63. 2021 Tuesday A: Noted GOP megadonor and Las Vegas casino mogul Sheldon Adelson is dead at age 87.  Elsewhere, we learned today that bloviating reporter Jim Acosta of CNN is leaving the White House press corps for another gig somewhere else like maybe his own show?  That one won’t last long.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Treasury and State impose counterterrorism sanctions on FIVE individuals linked to the illegitimate Iranian government. 
  64. 2021 Tuesday C: The Trump administration is urging various states to expand access to COVID-19 vaccines which some states such as the Empire State- seem to be abusing.  A recent Axios/Ipsos poll says, ‘most Americans eager to get the coronavirus vaccine.’  Next, the Golden State says it’s planning to use sports stadiums as mass vaccination sites.  Meanwhile, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem says she will sign a bill banning abortions for Downs syndrome babies.  Elsewhere, Michigan says it’s going to charge former GOP Governor Rick Snyder with the Flint, Michigan, water crisis.

  66. 2021 Tuesday E: ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe” Biden’s pick to head the OMB- Neera Tanden- reaped more than $700,000 working for a nonprofit.  Looks like Old Joe is going with financial fraudsters like him and his family.  Uh-oh.  Elsewhere, Congressman Michael Waltz, R-FL, says that ‘Joe Biden must speak out against impeachment’ because it is a divisive issue.  Hot upon its heels, a McLaughlin poll says, ‘most Americans are opposed to another impeachment of the 45th president, especially when he will be leaving office in EIGHT days.  Meanwhile, Jared Kushner is briefing ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden’s incoming National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan.  Finally, President Trump recognizes that talk of impeachment is dividing the country and once again urges PEACE for his followers while also saying that BIG TECH is dividing the United States.’
  67. 2021 Tuesday F: Regarding the aftermath of the Capitol Hill Antifa-led riots last week, AT&T becomes yet another big corporation halting donations to ALL GOP congressmen-and-women who voted against the certification of the 2020 Presidential Election.  Next, the CEO of Parler- John Matze- says he’s getting numerous death threats over his stand for First Amendment rights.   Meanwhile, after calling for ALL GOP members to be placed onto the NO-FLY list, House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie G. Thompson, D-Mississippi, continues demanding for GOP Senators Josh Hawley, Missouri, and Ted Cruz, Texas, to be put on the NO-FLY list.  WTF, Congressman Thompson?  Elsewhere, Rep.

  69. 2021 Tuesday H: The NHL says in playing for its fans, it’s going to lose billions of dollars unless things open up and soon.  Elsewhere, the Catholic League blasts the American Civil Liberties Union’s attacks on President Donald J.

  70. 2021 Tuesday I: The U.S. Department of Justice is probing ‘sedition conspiracies’  (they’re acting like this is somehow resembling the Civil War) surrounding the Capitol Hill 2021 storming last Wednesday, saying that somehow it is something we have never seen before.  Folks, we were alive, well, and observant in the 1960s and the 1970s (and way before) and we remember the antiwar protests of those two decades.  We also remember Puerto Rican communists attacking the Capitol, it’s as though modern historians overlook the past, especially when LEFTISTS were the ones blowing things up, murdering police officers, threatening judges, and even members of Congress.  They must wake up and stop with the flipping propaganda already.  Enough is enough.  Meanwhile, Apple CEO Tim Cook calls ‘for accountability’ for the Capitol Hill, Antifa-led riots of last week.  Sadly, Walmart announces it’s going to HALT donations to Republicans who stood against the certification of ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden.  Wow.
  71. 2021 Tuesday J: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 91,383,544 confirmed cases, +658,733, 1,956,752, confirmed deaths, +15,609, and 50,537,895 confirmed recoveries, +370,814.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 22,797,730 confirmed cases, up 89,725 from yesterday’s reporting, 379,020 confirmed deaths, UP 450, and 9,915,571 confirmed recoveries, UP 14,936.

  74. 2021 Tuesday M: Humorous note for the day:  as Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer was crossing the street, hecklers barraged him with invective, calling him “Adolf Hitler.”  Now that’s funnier than s**t.  Meanwhile, U.S. Chamber of Commerce President Thomas Donahue lashes out at President Trump like other losers by trying to say that the president’s words last Wednesday are what set in motion an event- the Capitol Hill riots- that was prearranged to coincide with Antifa members storming the building.  We now know that several Capitol Hill police officers are facing questions as to WHY they pulled barricades aside and waved the angry left-wing mob into the building.  Elsewhere, the manager for actor Chuck Norris says, ‘his client was not present at Capitol Hill last week.’  Finally, a ‘civil rights group’ demands Google remove Donald Trump’s YouTube channel.  Wow.
  75. 2021 Tuesday N: The 18.1st Acting U.S. Transportation Secretary Steven G. Bradbury assumed his position on this date what with the resignation of the 18th U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao.  A Republican, Bradbury served under Presidents Donald J.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by guitar virtuosos, Richard Thompson, was a record he recorded in a small home studio with the use of his laptop computer: “Front Parlour Ballads” (August 16, 2005).  By this point, many music fans had passed him by seeking the newest pretty face or smart marketer.  Like Kim Simmonds (Savoy Brown), Leslie West (Mountain), Robin Trower (originally of Procol Harum), Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, and some others, Thompson maintained a strict following of veteran fans.  Although he did not expect to sell many albums, record sales actually became brisk which would propel him forward to future endeavors.  As always, the man writes songs with captivating licks, incredibly creative lyrics, and is joined by others to round out the sound.  He performs all instruments on this album with the exception of percussion instruments which friend, Debra Dobkin, performs.  We hope you will seek this one out wherever you shop for the absolute best in music and add it to your collection- you will be extremely glad you did.
