Currently, Joe is shy 181,635 deaths.

  64. 2021 Tuesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,000 confirmed cases, 6,378 confirmed deaths, and 831,738 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Kenya, the birthplace of the United States’ 44th ‘president’ Barack Hussein Obama: 163,976 cases of the virus, 2,928 confirmed deaths and 113,057 confirmed recoveries.[xiv]

In Solomon Islands Dollar, one greenback equals 7.9957 and in Somali Schilling, a buck equals 575.00 and in South African Rand, one dollar equals 13.99 of theirs.[xviii]      The reason as to WHY Wall Street had such a down cycle today is due to fears of oncoming rampant inflation thanks to the inabilities of the Biden regime to continue the Trump economic miracle.  The Bidenistas will bring about a new Great Depression- mark our words.  Businesses are raising prices at the highest rates since the 1980s.   In other news, cryptocurrencies value is higher than that of the U.S. dollar.

  67. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden Regime News I– As the Untermensch in Gaza Strip continue attacking Israel, enfeebled old Joe Biden finds himself under assault from both the right and left.  The right wants Israel supported and defended while the left wants to see Israel destroyed.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day stands with Israel to a member.  We say use the neutron bomb on the human scum inhabiting the Gaza Strip and then reclaim the land for Israel.  Meanwhile, economist Stephen Moore says that ‘Joe Biden’s unemployment benefits are keeping Americans out of the workforce.’  Amen.  Regarding the abandonment of Israel by the fraudulent Biden regime, President Donald J. Trump says that ‘Biden’s weakness is causing the massive surge in violence across the Middle East.’  Amen to that, too.   
  68. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden Regime News II– In other fascinating news, WOKE leftists are jumping on Andrew Yang for announcing his support for Israel.  And the left eats its own.   Elsewhere, Joe Biden is sending out ‘signed letters’ to recipients of COVID-19 relief checks.  Big whoop.  Stick the letters where the sun don’t shine Mr. (Bogus) President.   Finally, new rules coming out of the Biden regime would force doctors and other medical professionals to enable those suffering from gender dysphoria to undergo whatever treatments and irreversible processes they demand.  (Note- while I hate to say this, I am beginning to think that Joe Biden could very well be the Antichrist- Olaf).
  69. 2021 Tuesday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– Chile- a nation with a high rate of vaccination against the Chi-Vi is currently experiencing a tidal wave of new Bat Fu Yuk cases thanks to the Chi-Coms.   Meanwhile, a key officer at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services says that ‘annual booster shots may be required against the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, aka the China Virus, aka the Wuhan Virus, aka the ‘VID.  No thank you, we are not getting the vaccinations no matter what.  Elsewhere, analysis by the New York Times shows that the extremely overcautious Centers for Disease Control are sowing mass confusion over the danger of the Wuhan Flu.   Finally, Missouri and Tennessee are joining other states slashing Chi-Vi relief payments to their citizens.  It’s time for these people to return to work.  Now.
  70. 2021 Tuesday I: Foreign News / Overseas News– In Russia, at least seven are dead in a school shooting in that country.  The police have apprehended the suspect.   Next, the Siberian doctor who treated Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny has mysteriously disappeared.   Next, left-wing lawmakers in the U.S. (you know the scum) are screeching about ‘Israel’s brutality’ in defending itself from the 130 or so rockets fired into Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.  You know our feelings on the topic.  Elsewhere, Rep. Rob Wittman, R-VA 1st congressional district, says that Iran is trying to cause problems in the Straits of Hormuz by swamping U.S. Navy and Coast Guard assets with swift boats.’  We say, ‘sink these riffraff scumbags.’
  71. 2021 Tuesday J: Political News I– The Vatican warns U.S. bishops NOT to deny drooling old Joe Biden communion.  (Note- we know where Pope Francis stands which is why many Catholics are abandoning the church.  The man’s a Marxist and one cannot serve Marx and God simultaneously.  Olaf).   Next, the new White House deputy director for political strategy and outreach- Natalie Montelongo- says, ‘ICE does not have to exist.’  Next, a new poll says that almost two-thirds of Americans believe social media platforms are ripping our country asunder.   Elsewhere, Caitlyn Jenner, running for the governor’s job in California chose to golf on Election Day rather than to cast a vote for President Donald J. Trump.  Hence why we like John Cox.
  72. 2021 Tuesday K: Political News II– Rep. Steve Scalise, R-LA 1st congressional district, and other members of the GOP are calling for a new probe into the shootings that occurred at the baseball field a few years back when an enraged Bernie Sanders supporter shot several people and either seriously wounded or killed them before being shot and killed by Capitol Hill Police officers.  After all, a week or two ago, FBI Director Chris Wray announced the verdict of ‘suicide by cop.’  Wow.
  73. 2021 Tuesday L: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– In Georgia, prosecutors are going to seek the death penalty against the sex-addicted POS who shot up a pair of Asian massage (brothel) parlors killing eight people, six of whom were Asian women whom the left then leapt atop as a symbol of anti-Asian hate ginned up by the China Virus.   Good.  Convict and execute that punk.  Next, in related legal news, the reason for the divorce between Bill and Melinda Gates is because back in 2019, Melinda was upset that hubby Bill was too close to Jeffrey Epstein, the pervert and pedophile.  We’d throw the guy out, too.  Elsewhere, in other legal news, New York state is celebrating a big victory as a court in the Empire State has thrown out the bankruptcy filings by the National Rifle Association.  Finally, trainer Bob Baffert of the Kentucky Derby winner, Medina Spirit, claims that an ointment he used on the horse may have caused its ‘positive’ for doping.  The investigation continues.
  74. 2021 Tuesday M: Miscellaneous News I– Now that Great Britain is going to require photo IDs to vote, President Donald J. Trump points out the obvious that so, too, should the United States.  Of course, to leftists, photo IDs are RACIST.  Speaking of the commander-in-chief, he is supporting Glenn Youngkin, the GOP candidate for Virginia governor, in the upcoming election.   Another stalwart candidate in upstate New York- Sheriff Mike Carpinelli- is putting his hat into the ring to replace that angry moron, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov.  We hope he can beat that POS.   Elsewhere, the ex-Capitol Hill Police Chief Steven Sund defended his performance on January 06, 2021, the day of the largest FALSE FLAG POLITICAL OPERATION IN THE HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES and said he feared the ‘appearance of a coup d’ êtat.’   Finally, Wisconsin is considering a law making it mandatory to play the National Anthem in every public venue.
  75. 2021 Tuesday N: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been the BORDER CZAR now for 49 days and has yet to take her butt down to the southern border.  What the hell is up with that?
  76. 2021 Tuesday O: Environmental News I– Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom, DS-CA, has extended the drought declaration to 41 counties.  It is sad that the state continues allowing fresh water to flow out to the Pacific Ocean rather than confining it behind the walls of new dams.   Meanwhile, the feds have approved the building of the first offshore wind farms.  Elsewhere, in a blow to the Green Meanies, a new report says that temperatures so far in 2021 are far lower than they have been in recent years.  Not good for idiots such as the ‘Squad’ and their push for the Green New Deal.  A win for us.
  77. 2021 Tuesday P: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Stick around for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1658 with a $402 million jackpot on the line.  Here are the numbers: 07, 08, 20, 36, 39 and Mega 22.  Out of 163,472 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $10,622 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys’ third album, “Surfer Girl,” released on September 16, 1963, was their greatest to date yet spawning numerous hits.  The band’s lineup was the same- Brian Wilson (bass, piano, and vocals), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Carl Wilson (lead guitar and vocals), Mike Love (vocals), and David Marks (rhythm guitar and vocals)- but Marks would be leaving soon.  The group knocked out a load of hits on this record- the title track to be sure but also “Catch a Wave,” “Little Deuce Coupe,” “In My Room,” and “Hawaii.”  Brian Wilson was having to write at a much more furious pace what with the emphasis being on hits.  Father Murray Wilson, the group’s manager, kept them on a tight schedule of writing, recording, and performing, raking in as much money as was humanly possible and then some.  Great music to be sure, music we hope you will check out and enjoy because the Beach Boys are one of the all-time great American groups to be sure.

105. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, APRIL 15, 2022

Friends, we are rebuilding our brand to avoid our search results being hidden by Microsoft Bing. We can only wonder what their problems are, and the most important thing is that if the GOP reclaims Congress in their fall, there must be some sort of accountability for Big Tech that they cannot cancel you without written reasons as well as an appellate process by which the canceled party can seek a fair and impartial hearing.

  54. 2018 Sunday: British Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn- a Marxist POS- demands to see ‘incontrovertible proof that Vladimir Putin and Russia were behind the poisoning of Sergei and Yulia Skripal in a London park before he will go along with slapping sanctions on his idols.   Foreign Secretary Boris “Bojo” Johnson says it’s ‘quite extraordinary’ to question the fact that the Russians carried out the attack on British soil, seeing as how the nerve agent used was one developed by the Soviet regime.   Meanwhile, Israeli defense officials announce the discovering of the longest Hamas tunnel found to date and then destroyed it.  Maybe the Palestinians should stop wasting money on tunnels and spend more on their citizenry?
  55. 2019 Monday: On this date, the Cathedral of Notre Dame erupts in flames, bringing down the roof and toppling its iconic spire among other things.  Questions erupt as to who could be responsible, many believing the ‘religion of peace,’ Islam, might have had a hand in it due to all the terrorist activity that occurs in France and across Europe.  Meanwhile, in Game 2 of the NBA Western Division Playoffs, the Los Angeles Clippers win a highly improbable comeback against the Golden State Warriors, beating them 135-131, in which the team overcame an NBA record 31-point deficit.  To make it even worse for the Warriors, the loss occurred in their home stadium in Oakland.
  56. 2020 Wednesday: China’s biowarfare gift to the world, COVID-19, aka the Wuhan Virus, aka the Kung Flu, aka the Wuhan Flu, aka the Wuhan Virus Crisis continues running amok everywhere but seemingly not in Communist China where the crap began.  Current confirmed cases for the entire planet are 2,071,710 with confirmed deaths sitting at 137,039 and confirmed recoveries at 511,356. In the United States, confirmed cases sit at 641,919 what with confirmed deaths at 28,399 and confirmed recoveries at 52,196.  Now the Beijing bullshitters claim in the People’s Republic of China, there are 84,489 confirmed cases and 3,342 confirmed deaths and 78,987 confirmed recoveries.  We know this is bullshit, folks, as Western intel agencies say there are at least 2.5 million confirmed deaths and God knows how many cases.  When this ends and it will, it will be time to sue every level of government in the communist country and to welcome Nationalist China- Taiwan- back to the United Nations as a FREE and INDEPENDENT COUNTRY because until the West sold them out to open the doors for the commies, they WERE China.  
  57. 2020 Wednesday A: The DOW Jones Industrial Average closed at 23,504.35, down 445.41 (-1.86%), the NASDAQ 8,393.18 down 122.574 (-1.44%), and the S & P 2,783.36, down 62.7 (-2.20%).  Meanwhile, in Michigan, people protest authoritarian Governor Gretchen Whitmer who has the state on the severest lockdown order in the country.  People took to the streets in their cars to let this fascist know she is out of line.  If ANTIFA were an HONEST organization and not just a communist front group, they would be there braving rubber bullets, dogs, and tear gas to protest this left-wing skank.   Finally, President Donald J. Trump calls for government to reconvene so the House and Senate can begin doing the work of the American people instead of sitting home spanking the wank.
  58. 2021 Thursday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 138,340,920 confirmed cases, +493,648, 2,974,830  confirmed deaths, +9,631, and 78,785,642 confirmed recoveries, +237,506.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,682,046 confirmed cases, UP 73,643 from yesterday’s reporting, 570,531 confirmed deaths, UP 975, and 119,012,328 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.[v]  In other COVID-19, a recent report says that Regeneron’s Chi-Vi cocktail can help prevent COVID-19 infections.
  59. 2021 Thursday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 243,639 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  Meanwhile, people are questioning WHY if everyone is getting their shots why the hell people must continue wearing masks like that dimwitted little troll, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci continues telling us to do.  WTF is up with that?

  62. 2021 Thursday D:   STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,035.99, UP 305.10 points (+0.90%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,038.76, UP 180.92 points (+1.31%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,170.42, UP 45.76 points (+1.11%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $63.32 per barrel, -0.14 (-0.22%).  The price of GOLD is $1,764.40 per troy oz., -2.40 (-0.14%) while the price of SILVER is $25.93 per troy ounce, -0.04 (-0.15%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,197.20 per troy oz, -3.00 (-0.25%) while the price of COPPER is $4.23 per pound, +0.01 (+0.17%).[viii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,740.43 per troy oz, +63.98 (+2.39%).[ix] The price of RHODIUM is $28,100.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%).[x]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000016.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.52 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.93.     In Georgian Lari, one greenback equals 3.42 and in Ghana Cedi, a buck equals 5.76.[xi]   
  63. 2021 Thursday E: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE THREE STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.940 per gallon, $2.837 in Florida, $3.749 in Hawaii, and $3.345 in Washington state.[xii]    Let’s look at one other location- Idaho: $3.066.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,174,429,261,064 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xiii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do. 
  64. 2021 Thursday F: COVID-19 NEWS– thanks to the Chi-Com gift that simply won’t stop giving, Pfizer’s CEO is now saying everyone may have to take a booster shot for the diabolical Xi Jinping Bat Flu every flipping year.  Screw that.  We are not taking the shot.  Period.   Meanwhile, Merck is planning on launching an outpatient COVID-19 pill.  How about hydroxychloroquine?  People in Africa don’t seem to be getting the gripe as much as other places in the world.  Next, a new poll suggests that 1-in-5 Republicans have no plans on getting the ‘Mark of the Beast’ whereas Sheeple Democrats want to get it (and still teachers don’t want to return to work). 
  65. 2021 Thursday G: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS– Joe Biden signed an executive order today declaring Russia to be a national security threat (while giving the Chi-Coms a pass.  Good going, Joe).  As Old Joe signs the order, the U.S. begins expelling Russian diplomats and slapping new sanctions on Moscow.  Elsewhere, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says that Joe Biden’s order is a ‘legality’ with which to permit action against the Russians for the SolarWinds hack.   Meanwhile, more Republican lawmakers are pushing back against the ‘Biden plan’ to leave Afghanistan.  Congressman Michael Waltz, R-FL 6th congressional district, says that ‘pulling U.S. troops out of Afghanistan on September 11, 2021- the 20-year anniversary of the 9-11 terrorist event- is an insult to the American people.  We concur.
  66. 2021 Thursday H: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE– Congressman Chip Roy, R-TX 21st congressional district, is putting forth a bill with which to designate the Mexican drug cartels as ‘terrorist organizations.’  Meanwhile, Congresswoman Kat Cammack lambastes Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas as being ‘too scared, too cowardly to address Border Patrol officers face-to-face.’  We concur on this point, too.  Speaking of the border catastrophe, Governor Henry McMaster, R-SC 117th governor of the state, says that ‘Trump had it under control and that the Biden regime should return to his policies.’  Speaking of Joe Biden, former Governor Chris Christie, RINO-NJ, says that ‘Republicans should just get to the point and call out Joe Biden for being a LIAR.’  Amen.  In other border news, we hear that “Kooky Kamala” Harris could soon be visiting the southern border.  Oh, goodie.   Finally, the lack of sufficient DNA testing at the southern border is going to allow more FAKE FAMILIES into the United States.[xiv] 
  67. 2021 Thursday I: CRITICAL RACE THEORY / RACE / CRIME AND PUNISHMENT NEWS– Joe Biden’s ambassador to the United Nations- Linda Thomas-Greenfield much to the delight of the Third World thugs and dictators of the ‘august world body’ criticized the United States for being a racist hellhole.  Wow.  Why do all these people of color want to come to the U.S.?   Meanwhile, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, slams another Biden flunky, this one being little bigot and hater Kristin Clarke, nominated to be Assistant Attorney General at the Civil Rights Division, for claiming to support the cops when she has articles and social media posts in which, she condemns all law enforcement as being racists.  ‘Which is it, Ms. Clarke?’  The little b***h could not answer Senator Cruz.  In other ‘race news,’ Fort Jackson drill instructor Jonathan Pentland is in trouble for pushing a black guy protesting in his neighborhood.  He has been charged with 3rd assault and Black Lives Matter protesters are surrounding his home day and night.   Finally, Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin waives his right to testify at his murder trial. (Note- riots continue in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, for the fourth night in a row while Officer Kim Potter appeared in court today over the death of Duante Wright).  
  68. 2021 Thursday J: FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AND SUPREME COURT NEWS– Congressman Jerrold “Jerry” “Pillsbury Doughboy” Nadler, D-NY 10th congressional district, and Senator Ed Markey, DS-MA, debuted their plan to ‘unpack’ the U.S. Supreme Court with their new bill with which to expand the high court to 13 seats so as to nullify President Donald J. Trump’s three successful SCOTUS picks, two of which, the two Democrats claim he stole from them.  Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell says that ‘responsible people must denounce the liberals’ court-packing scheme.’  We shall see.  Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, says that ‘IF the Dems expand the court to 13 seats, the nation’s high court will lose all legitimacy.’  We agree.   Speaking of the high court, it upholds a lower court ruling in Ohio that bans abortions because of Down’s syndrome.  In other news, the U.S. Department of the Treasury says that a ‘spy’ working for Paul Manafort, Konstantin Kliminik passed sensitive Trump polling data onto Russian intelligence back in 2016.
  69. 2021 Thursday K: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– The state of Florida passed a bill prohibiting trannys from participating in scholastic sports to which we say, “How about a third category of scholastic sports?  How about tranny sports?  Cheaper to build new locker rooms and showers than to continue fighting this BS in courts.”  Ah, well, congratulations, Florida!  The NCAA says it won’t hold any further sporting events in states that ARE NOT WOKE.  We say, “F**k them.”  Elsewhere, Arizona is going to hold the election ballot recounts from 2020 in the Veterans Memorial Colosseum.   In other news, Republican senators are reintroducing a ban on the use of TikTok[xv] on federal devices and on federal grounds.  A similar bill is going to appear in the U.S. House of Representatives.   Meanwhile, in the Arkansas gubernatorial race, former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has amassed $5 million already.
  70. 2021 Thursday L: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– A new Quinnipiac Poll says that 52-percent of Americans disapprove of the job Joe Biden is doing while only 48-percent say he’s the ‘bomb.’  The guy is a senile loser.  Next, the GOP U.S. Senate race in Pennsylvania is shaping up to be a SUPER MAGA PRO-TRUMP PRIMARY BATTLE.  Next, people are wondering if President Donald J. Trump is going to endorse a candidate to whoop Congresswoman Liz Cheney’s butt in Wyoming?  We think so.  Today, he stood with Wyoming’s GOP Chairman Frank Eathorne, who happened to be in Washington, D.C., on January 06, 2021, the day the Democrats launched the largest FALSE FLAG OPERATION in U.S. political history.[xvi]   In other news, Congressman Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, condemns Biden’s intel leaders over their ‘politicizing and weaponizing intelligence information.’
  71. 2021 Thursday M: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– A recent poll says that ’72-percent of the American people support the Second Amendment.’  Guns are not going anywhere.  Just saying. In other news, a split congress may take different paths to trying to pass Joe Biden’s $2.3 trillion ‘infrastructure bill,’ aka the BIDEN PORKULUS BILL.  We hope it goes straight into the crapper.  Next, we learn that intelligence leaders have confirmed what we all knew: that the ‘Russians are paying bounties on U.S. soldiers killed’ was nothing more than a crock of crap.  According to them, there is low to moderate confidence that this is true.  Moving on, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says that Congressman Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district, says the allegations against him are not true.  OF COURSE, THEY ARE NOT FLIPPING TRUE, Congressman McCarthy, the stuff the Dems are doing to him comes straight out of Saul Alinsky’s book, “Rules for Radicals.”  Elsewhere, Vice President Mike Pence received a pacemaker for his heart today.  Finally, federal law enforcement is telling all citizens living along the southern border to arm up for their own protection.
  72. 2021 Thursday N: BUSINESS NEWS– McDonald’s restaurants are going to implement new employee training in all 39,000 of its restaurants across the globe seeing as how some sexual harassment complaints have been filed against employees in some of them.  Good for you, y’all WOKE now.  Elsewhere, Deliveroo’s food delivery system has seen its orders double in Q-1.  In other business news, Jeff Bezos says- having survived the union attempt at one of his factories- that he will do a better job for his employees.  Meanwhile, last week, there were 576,000 initial unemployment claims which is the lowest number since the Chi-Coms sent the Xi Jinping Bat Flu around the globe.
  73. 2021 Thursday O: CRAZY NEWS–  The AP Style Book says the term, ‘mistress,’ should no longer be used as (1) it implies the woman is to blame in a long-term sexual relationship with man and (2) there is no male counterpart which some say is bogus as ‘cheater’ is a good name for a man involved in a long-term, ‘down-low’ relationship whether with a woman or another man.  WOKE strikes again.   Elsewhere, Facebook’s oversight board is weighing the future of President Donald J. Trump’s social media fate.   Next, filmmaker Jeremy Corbett says that the videos have of UFOs are the best he has ever seen, deeming them authentic.  We look forward to the report that supposedly is coming out on June 01, 2021.  We will believe it when we see it as the federal government has made promises such as full disclosure before and always reneged on them.   According to the National UFO Reporting Center, there were 7,263 sightings in the U.S. alone compared to 5,796 the year before which says it appears we are entering what UFO experts call a ‘flap year.’  
  74. 2022 Friday: Friends, we are rebuilding our brand to avoid our search results being hidden by Microsoft Bing.  We can only wonder what their problems are, and the most important thing is that if the GOP reclaims Congress in their fall, there must be some sort of accountability for Big Tech that they cannot cancel you without written reasons as well as an appellate process by which the canceled party can seek a fair and impartial hearing.

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

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

[iii] 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.

[iv] We hope to promote the music of both Emerson, Lake & Palmer along with the Nice at some point soon.  We hope you will remain alert for the day when we do.  Thank you.

[v] Bing has returned to reporting update numbers (well, mostly).  Here is the link: (1) covid-19 u.s. and global statistics – Bing

[vi] Speaking of the decision to flip the game from Atlanta to Denver, we learned today that unsavory people like Stacey Abrams and the big dimwit, the pro-Chi-Com-loving LeBron James were integral in getting the game moved.  How outrageous.  How evil.  Scumbags.

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

[xiv] We say the time is coming when the states are going to have to lay in minefields, antivehicle, antipersonnel, and anti-boat traps to take out the scumbags as they attempt to storm our country.  We also believe that a few thousands dollars’ worth of lead will stop the tidal wave once and for all.  NO other nation in the world would prevent the disaster our nation is undergoing due to weak, spineless leaders in the BOGUS, we repeat, BOGUS regime currently occupying the White House.   

[xv] TikTok remains one of the Chi-Coms’ best intelligence gathering devices around the world but especially here in the United States.

[xvi] Speaking of the Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021, testimony before congress yesterday and today suggests that Capitol Hill law enforcement was woefully unprepared, that they were lacking intelligence, and even worse, that many were told to stand down although no one clearly knows who the person giving the orders was.  Can we suggest, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi is in charge of the Capitol Hill cops.  Let us look at her first.  Thank you.

  50. 2005 Sunday: Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao floats an idea to India, suggesting that the two rivals put past tensions between the two countries behind them and work at pooling resources and talent to become leading IT developers and manufacturers.  Doing so would signify the coming of the Asian Century.  No word from New Delhi.
  51. 2006 Monday: Illegal aliens across the United States take to the streets protesting a new bill, H.R. 4437 which would transform all illegal aliens in the country into felons.  Question: if hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens can pour out of the shadows and roam the streets, why are Border Patrol officers out there scooping them up, putting them in cages, and then deporting them back to whence the f**k they came?  This is what nations that love themselves do.  DO IT NOW.
  52. 2007 Tuesday: The U.S. government authorizes nearly $60 million for the Palestinian Authority.  How about this: how about NOT giving them the money?  They use it to commit terrorist attacks on Israel, not for the betterment of their people.  Elsewhere, all hell is breaking out in Baghdad.  The U.S. and Iraqi forces are fighting terrorists and scumbags and are planning to construct a wall around the Sunni neighborhoods in the capital city seeing as how much of the terrorism is coming from the Shia majority.

General Assembly organized by former Serbian foreign minister, Vuk Jeremic.  Meanwhile, tensions on the Korean Peninsula continue to rise as South Korea and the United States raise threat levels and the People’s Republic of China and North Korea clamp down on border crossings.  This is back when the PRC was sort of working with regional countries and the U.S. to contend with North Korea’s nuclear ambitions.
  59. 2014 Thursday: The head of Tesla Motors, Elon Musk, announces that his company will begin selling its luxury electric cars in China later this month.  Meanwhile, around Aleppo, Syria, home of ISIS, 88 people die and scores of others are injured when the Syrian air force drops a series of barrel bombs on the city.  This of course drives liberals loony tunes as they think the use of barrel bombs is somehow a horrible thing.  Look, killing people is a horrible thing, what difference does it make if barrel bombs do the killing or President Barack Hussein Obama indiscriminately drones people all over the world sans any type of trial?
  60. 2015 Friday: As ISIS continues spreading terror throughout the Middle East, jihadists in Baghdad carry out a suicide bombing killing several people and wounding loads of others.  It appears that President Barack Obama has no ideas as how to combat this evil scourge of jihad evil.  We say, “Neutron bomb.  Painless.  Simple.  Quick.  Cheap.”
  61. 2016 Sunday: Three bigwigs of the pro-Democracy movement in Hong Kong- Agnes Chow, Nathan Law, and Joseph Wong form a new political movement to fight for the freedom of their fellow Hong Kongese from communist China.  Meanwhile, as the international committee led by U.S. Secretary of State John F. (Flipping) Kerry tries to coerce Iran into making the ‘deal only if they agree to discuss their missile programs,’ Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif says ‘any discussion of his nation’s missile systems will NOT happen.’
  62. 2017 Monday: The 113th U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch, nominated by President Donald J. Trump, takes his place on the court on this date.  The swearing in ceremony took place at the White House.  Associate Justice would take the place of Associate Justice Antonin Scalia who died last year.  Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms detain a political activist from Taiwan, Lee Ming-che, claiming he endangered Chi-Com national security along with his wife.  
  63. 2018 Tuesday: So-called “Boy Wonder,” Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, begins testifying before the U.S. Congress regarding data harvesting, lack of privacy for the social media giant’s users, and misuse of said data.   Elsewhere, the Israeli government announces the findings of its investigation into the death of a jihadist on the other side of the Gaza border fence.  A sniper put the thug down- someone identified as a Hamas terrorist- with one shot which is ruled a ‘clean kill.’  However, the soldiers who filmed the incident and then celebrated it are told not to behave like that.
  64. 2019 Wednesday: On this date, one of the most amazing photos to come out of the Event Horizon Telescope depicts a BLACK HOLE in 2017 in galaxy M87, approximately 6.5 billion times the mass of Earth and about 55 million light years distant.  Absolutely amazing!  Elsewhere, anyone on Medicare in the United States has had salespeople calling them up, telling them they are ‘eligible for back braces for their pain.’  All one must do is to give their information to these scoundrels.  Well, the federal government charges 24 scumbags for Medicare fraud, not a good thing, because these people were pushing back braces to many who did not need them and billing the feds for $1.2 billion for not only the back braces but other durable equipment medical devices.   Finally, the 6th U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen left office on this date.  She served under President Donald J. Trump from December 06, 2017, until today.
  65. 2020 Friday: China’s grand gift to the rest of the world, the COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis continues claiming lives and ruining economies.  Currently, we have 1,699,632 confirmed cases of this hellacious disease what with 102,734 confirmed deaths and 376,330 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 502,876 confirmed cases what with 18,747 confirmed deaths and another 27,314 confirmed recoveries.   Around the world, pain, suffering, and death continue and it’s all because of two guilty culprits: communist China and the World Health Organization that continues to carry water for the communist nation.  President Trump informed the world today that the United States puts $500 million into the coffers of the corrupt organization every year while the People’s Republic of China puts in a measly $40-50 million per year yet the W.H.O. continues doing Beijing’s bidding.  This will have to change and the only way it will is when the United States returns to the Two-China Policy and recognizes Taiwan as a full member state of the U.N. and gives them back their seat on the Security Council.
  66. 2021 Saturday: JOE BIDEN NEWS– Joe Biden says he is going to maintain the current level of funding for the U.S. military, he is going to funnel it through Pine Island Acquisitions Corporation which is a major lobbying tailor-made for doing Deep State business with the federal government supplying its military needs (and most likely, to re-route money back around to liberal Democrats- the classic money-go-round.  However, what exactly the military is going to do other than to root out conservatism in the ranks is unclear because his Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki declared ‘the Biden administration WON’T confront communist China.’  Why would they?  The Chi-Coms fund the entire Biden clan.   Finally, Joe Biden is going to convene a ‘chip summit’ so we can find a way to eradicate our chip shortage.  Whoa, Joe.
  67. 2021 Saturday A: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE– Congressman Jim Banks, R-IN 3rd congressional district, says that Joe Biden bears full responsibility for the border crisis.  He labels it a horrible ‘humanitarian crisis.’   Meanwhile, as this self-inflicted crisis continues, the Biden administration is going to continue housing illegal aliens at hotels in border cities (and elsewhere across the country).  (Note- Chefs Lilah and Itzi says that flights bringing illegals into Honolulu is indeed happening although they are doing their best to keep it quiet.  They say it’s the same as when President Obama was in office and states were giving their homeless populations one-way tickets to the islands.  NOT good).  
  68. 2021 Saturday B: JUDICIAL SYSTEM NEWS– following U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer saying yesterday that ‘packing the court is not the way to go,’ tens of thousands of raving lunatic leftists are out in the streets demanding that Justice Breyer step down now.  This is what you get when you coddle at least two generations by not giving them the belt across their asses when they cause problems as kids- you get a bunch of whiny, sniveling young people who behave like spoiled brats.  You know what Ichabod Crane said in “The Headless Horseman”- ‘spare the rod and spoil the child.’  Folks, instead of these worthless c***suckers canceling us, how about we cancel the living Bejeezus out of them?  It’s US or THEM.  Keep your seat, Justice Breyer, we may not agree with you on much, but this is flipping crazy.  In other court news, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom’s Gestapo-like order preventing home Bible study during the pandemic.  When can we recall this POS?  (Note- Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the libs on the court.  What a mistake he was).  In other news, famed legal scholar and professor Alan Dershowitz told Newsmax TV that the Dems are indeed doing their best to ‘stack the court.’
  69. 2021 Saturday C: 2020 ELECTION FRAUD, CORRUPTION, THEFT, AND FOREIGN INTERFERENCE NEWS– Governor Christopher T. Sununu, R-N.H., says he will sign an order to look into the voting machines used in the last election.  Word has it they flipped a lot of GOP votes to Democrats.  Is it not amazing how this just seemed to happen across the country?  And they claim there was NO election interference.   Elsewhere, after being ordered to remove the dead voters from the state’s voter rolls due to a court order, Pennsylvania announces they are going to clean up their voter rolls.  Isn’t this amazing, too, how when courts intervene on behalf of the voters, things start getting cleaned up?  NO wonder they still have “Fort Pelosi” up in Washington, D.C.   (Note- although the ‘un-elected governor of Georgia- Stacey Abrams once supported similar laws to what Georgia now has, she no longer does.  Too bad).
  70. 2021 Saturday D: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS– Iranian leadership was all excited today touring a new centrifuge facility that will enrich uranium 50-times faster than they currently are.  Moreover, the good thing about it, it’s all for ‘peaceful purposes’ or so these lying scumbags claim.  Seems about time for another worm infecting their centrifuges to occur.  We know Joe Biden won’t do it so it’s up to the Israelis.  Next, the Chi-Coms have hit Alibaba with a $2.8 billion antitrust suit.  How does this work in a ‘communist country?’  It’s nice they pretend like they have laws when in fact, there is BUT ONE LAW- whatever dictator Xi Jinping says.
  71. 2021 Saturday E: RINO REPUBLICAN NEWS– It would appear that Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell has some residual guilt left from sticking the dagger in President Donald J. Trump’s neck by voting NOT to convict #45 in his second impeachment trial and then saying that ‘Trump was responsible for the False Flag Operation the Dems and their storm-troopers ran on January 06, 2021.’  Senator McConnell says that Joe Biden is ‘caving to the left on packing the U.S. Supreme Court and ending the filibuster.’  His good friend, Senator Mitt Romney, RINO-UT, echoes his boss by ripping the Dems on their scheme to ‘pack the court’ and to ‘end the filibuster.’  (Note- these guys are hoping we will forget their RINO politics and their traitorous behavior towards a president who did what neither of them have ever been able to accomplish: #45 kept his word).   In REAL Republican news, Jason Miller says that ‘Donald Trump is still the head of the GOP no matter how much the RINO scum wants him NOT to be).
  72. 2021 Saturday F: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 135,030,164 confirmed cases, +991,984, 2,920,537  confirmed deaths, +15,983, and 76,746,058 confirmed recoveries, +557,436.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,348,231 confirmed cases, UP 140,461 from yesterday’s reporting, 567,142 confirmed deaths, UP 1,635, and 118,914,896 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.[vi]

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Levon Helm returned to action following a bout with cancer and reformed his band.  The subsequent release is “The Midnight Ramble Sessions, Volume II” (August 16, 2006).  Joining the drummer/vocalist, were Little Sammy Davis (vocals/harmonica), Larry Campbell  (guitars), Dr. John (pianos), Michael Merritt (bass), and several others.  Davis is the vocalist and front man for the group seeing as how Helm was recovering from throat cancer which is amazing because the band roars through a set of blues tunes that leave one’s head ablaze and ears a-smoking.  Levon manages to do some vocals which is good.  We hope that you will investigate this one to your heart’s content and consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure.  Seek it out wherever you shop for the absolute best in music and enjoy.  It’s amazing, of that we guarantee.

1954 Thursday: In the Battle of Dien Bien Phu, having lost Eliane 1 to the People’s Army the preceding night, Lt. Colonel “Gars Pierre” Langlais approves a plan for Major Marcel Bigeard to take it back later in the night/early morning. The size of the camp has been whittled down from more than 1,100 acres to around 640. Every scrap of land is essential to the defenders as is bleeding the communists dry faster than the communists are bleeding them.

  69. 2021 Thursday: JOE BIDEN NEWS– Joe Biden debuted executive actions this morning that he is taking to strip firearms away from the American people.  Most of them are feelgood measures for his whack-a-doodle base but even so, some of them have teeth- if anyone will obey them (which, we here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM have no intention of doing.  NO one is taking our firearms away, no one).  Next, Joe Biden nominated perhaps the worst person to become head of the ATF- the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (and Explosives), David Chipman, the dimwit who transformed the debacle at Waco, Texas, into what it became by lying through his teeth about things that SUPPOSEDLY occurred there, but which did not, and which then led to the deaths of mostly women- many of them pregnant- and children.  This was one of the shining events that occurred during the Bill Clinton administration, overseen by Attorney-General Janet Reno.   Congressman Ken Buck, R-CO 4th congressional district says that Chipman is the absolute worst person to head the ATF.
  70. 2021 Thursday A: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE–  Texas Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, came out today and lit the Biden administration up for the appalling conditions in Border Patrol facilities holding tens of thousands of illegal alien, river-swimming, or fence-jumping invaders.  He condemns the Biden administration for its shocking lack of compassion and sensitivity and demands they close these facilities now which means these people should be loaded aboard empty airliners and dumped back in Guatemala.  Let THEM sort them out seeing as how they are a major starting point for this invasion.  Build the wall and deport them all, now.  Anyhow, Governor Abbott pointed out the human rights abuses such as rampant sexual assaults on women, children, and weaklings as well as shortages of food, medical supplies, clean water, and proper clothing and bedding.  IF these horrendous practices occurred under the Trump administration, President Trump would be visiting Old Sparky but under Joe Biden, “No problem, amigos, no problem”… Finally, people continue asking where the nation’s ‘border czar,’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris is.  She has been traveling around the country but nowhere near the border.  At least Cuban-born U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is visiting the border today.  Praise the Lord!

  72. 2021 Thursday C: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS– The communist Chinese in Beijing warned their stooge- “Pro-China Joe” Biden- today that he had better not boycott the 2022 Winter Olympics in their capital city.  We say, “F**k them!  Who do you think you are, you commie bastards?’  Next, the Biden administration announced that it is going to lift ALL sanctions on the crap-hole nation of Iran without seeking anything in return.  Good for you, Joe, good for you. Regarding the Chi-Coms, tech investor Peter Thiel says that ‘Bitcoin’ may very well be a financial tool the communists can use against the United States.  Moving on, France is postponing the French Open to May 30 over fears of COVID-19.  Meanwhile, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says the ‘U.S. policy on Russia is both dumb and ineffective.’  This comes after the Biden administration yesterday evening revived the Trump-Russia collusion scam and Russian interference in U.S. elections by announcing he is going to slam Russia with new sanctions for meddling and hacking.  Okay, Joe.
  73. 2021 Thursday D:  NATIONAL POLITICS– Congressman Lee Zeldin, R-NY 1st congressional district has officially announced he is running to become governor of New York.  Next, Governor Ralph “Black Face” Northam, D-VA, has officially endorsed former Virginia Democrat governor and bagman for Bill and Hillary Clinton- Terry “the Punk” McAuliffe[vii]– to become governor again.  Moving on, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district has demanded that “Kooky Kamala” Harris attend FBI and CIA intel briefings.   Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump is nudging Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson, GOP, to seek another term by giving him his endorsement.   Meanwhile, in a threat to the Joe Biden agenda, following giving his wife a cushy gig, Senator Joe Manchin, D-WV, refuses to allow ‘budget reconciliation’ to be used to pass bills nor will he vote to smack down the Filibuster rule in the U.S. Senate.  God bless you, Senator Manchin.
  74. 2021 Thursday E: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– the National Rifle Association’s Wayne LaPierre says he failed to disclose yacht trips he accepted.  Next, we learned today that the Trump administration tried conducting secret talks in Syria with the goal of freeing American hostages across the Middle East.   Elsewhere, the San Francisco schools system- after spending loads of taxpayer dollars- has decided it will postpone renaming schools named after Americans (or foreigners) who might be RACISTS.    Meanwhile, John Gizzi of Newsmax says that ‘John Boehner,[viii] the former speaker of the House and now a political lobbyist for the Chi-Coms is attacking conservatives while ignoring his own lack of character.’  Ouch.

  56. 2003 Friday: Poor Big Tobacco- an Illinois court hands tobacco giant Phillip Morris a $10.1 million judgment saying that the company lied to its consumers by applying the word ‘light’ to its ‘light cigarettes.’  Anyone who has ever smoked knows that both ‘lights’ and ‘kings’ are overloaded with nicotine- the addictive part of tobacco- as well as loads of tar and other impurities that ain’t good for you.   People in the 1920s and 1930s called them cancer sticks and that was before anyone truly knew just how bad tobacco truly was.  Big Tobacco sells its product to the Third World now more so than Western countries.
  57. 2004 Sunday: Former Democrat President Jimmy Carter, a Nobel Peace Prize winner, roundly condemns President George W. Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair ‘for waging an unnecessary war of aggression against Iraq.’  Millions are protesting all across the world, the Arab world is unhappy (even though Saddam Hussein is a murderous thug), and it’s clear that whatever support there was for the war has vanished.  On top of all this, al-Qaida swears that on the black market, they have purchased suitcase nukes and you know what that means- they want to set them off in the United States.
  58. 2005 Monday: Much to the horror of liberals and jihadists across the world, Israel announces that it will soon be constructing 3,500 new homes in its capital of Jerusalem.  Of course, the Palestinians run amok.   Elsewhere, a shootout between U.N. peacekeepers and angry former rebels in Haiti leaves four people dead- including TWO U.N. peacekeepers.  Meanwhile, U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan proposes increasing the number of members on the U.N. Security Council from 15 to an even two-dozen so he can get additional Third World members on it.
  59. 2006 Tuesday: The social media website Twitter was established with the sending of the first ‘tweet’ by co-founder Jack Dorsey, who wrote: “just setting up my twttr.”  Meanwhile, a day following talks between Vladimir Putin and Hu Jintao, Russian energy company Gazprom announces a new energy project that will see the construction of two major natural gas pipelines from Russia to communist China.  Construction will commence and competition is expected within five years.  The Russians will also provide aid to their Chi-Com allies by helping them construct at least two- and possibly more- nuclear power plants.  Conversely, Democrats in the United States are big on windmills and solar farms.
  60. 2007 Wednesday: U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice announces that the Bush administration is going to slash funding to the Palestinian Authority so that large portions of the aid cannot somehow find a way into the pockets of Hamas thugs.  Meanwhile, the Iranians declare that they are going to enrich uranium outside the bounds of recent U.N. agreements.
  61. 2008 Friday: The Chi-Com military convoy is heading to Tibet, thousands of soldiers determined to restore law and order (even though the Chi-Coms are usurpers).  The Tibetan people are seeking help from the wider world to liberate their country, but no one cares about this far-away place.  The Chi-Coms will get away with their crimes.  FREE TIBET!  FREE HONG KONG!  FREE TAIWAN!  FREE MACAO!  FREE MAINLAND CHINA!
  62. 2009 Saturday: The Venezuelan military is launching a crackdown across the country as the GREAT SOCIALIST REVOLUTION continues under the AMAZING Simon Bolivar-wannabe Hugo Chavez.  The thugs are taking control of air-and-seaports to prevent their people leaving or unauthorized goods from coming in.  You know, the government has to ‘wet its beak’ in every incoming good.  Meanwhile, Somali pirates leap into their high-speed boats and grab an Indian freighter, taking both the ship and its entire crew hostage.
  63. 2010 Sunday: Muslims in Pakistan are upset, protesting in the streets over claims that Israel is blowing up sacred Muslim sites in their country.  This is bogus.  The Muslims know it’s bogus; yet they continue running amok causing trouble.  The problem has arisen over the fact that Israel is building in Jerusalem, their hereditary capitol, given to them by GOD ALMIGHTY.  Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu informs the world that ‘building in Jerusalem for us is like building in Tel Aviv.’  Stop with the sniveling already.
  64. 2011 Monday: The first full face transplant in history occurs as doctors at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts, perform the feat.  Meanwhile, during the third night of outside intervention in the Libyan uprising, the home of Moammar Gaddafi is hit with more bombs than ever before (who gave Barack Obama the right to do this? —the man has a fricking Nobel Peace Prize!).  Elsewhere, Israel launches air strikes against Palestinian targets after the Palestinians fire rockets and mortars into the world’s only Jewish state.  
  65. 2012 Wednesday: The Greek Parliament votes unanimously to approve the bailout deal given them by the European Union.  Elsewhere, violence continues across Iraq as unconfirmed reports arise in which ‘emos’- young Iraqi men who dress in Western styles- are having their skulls bashed in with cinderblocks by local jihadists.   Why would this be untrue?  We know ISIS loves throwing gays off high rooftops.   These people are animals and require eradication like the vermin they are.
  66. 2013 Thursday: The U.S. uses B-52 bombers in joint exercises with South Korea, which leads to North Korea threatening to bomb U.S. bases in Japan.   Meanwhile, the European Space Agency reveals scientific data that says the Universe is 13.82 billion years old.   Elsewhere, while President Barack Hussein Obama is visiting Palestine and Israel, Palestinian thugs begin firing some missiles into Israel.  Light ‘em up, Israelis. 
  67. 2014 Friday: Vladimir Putin ratifies laws today annexing Crimea, defying sanction threats by the U.S. and the European Union.  Ukraine, however, signs an association accord with the European Union which goes against Vladimir Putin’s express wishes.  Meanwhile, Exxon Mobil takes the initiative among energy companies to disclose its plans for dealing with climate change in response to a 2013 shareholder resolution; the company’s move may set a standard for other energy companies to follow.
  68. 2015 Saturday: As ongoing talks between the USA and five other nations, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani expresses optimism that the group could strike a deal on the Iranian’s nuclear development—ostensibly for ‘peaceful purposes’—before a major deadline arrives at the end of the month—what a mess.  Elsewhere, in Yemen, the U.S. evacuates its remaining special operations forces as the country continues going from bad to worse.
  69. 2016 Monday: South Korea reports that North Korea is at it yet again this time firing off five shortrange missiles into the Sea of Japan.  They are pissed off at the new sanctions imposed upon them by the Obama administration.   Elsewhere, in Bamako, Mali, unidentified gunmen storm a hotel used by European Union military officials.   Other than one of the gunmen being shot dead, no one else was hurt.
  70. 2017 Tuesday: Famed head of the world-famous Gong Show- Chuck Barris- dies at age 87. The Gong Show was a great show.   Elsewhere, Iran continues its belligerence claiming they can enrich uranium up to 99-percent and no one can do a damned thing about it.  They don’t know President Donald J. Trump.   Next, Neil Gorsuch undergoes more grilling today before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee. 
  71. 2018 Wednesday:  After the data of more than 50 million users is harvested by Cambridge Analytica, Facebook CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg admits he and his company ‘made mistakes.’  Meanwhile, the communist government of China continues amassing power as it announces measures to consolidate radio and television stations into one entity, “Voice of China.”  Finally, a suicide bomber kills 31 people and injures scores more who were celebrating the Persian New Year in Kabul, Afghanistan. 
  72. 2019 Thursday: Six days after the Christchurch, New Zealand, massacre, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announces a ban on military-style assault weapons.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump announces via Twitter that the United States should respect and recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights.   Syria, however, says nothing in response.  What can they do about it?
  73. 2020 Saturday: The World Health Organization announces that worldwide, at least 20 vaccines for COVID-19, aka the Old Chi-Vi, the Yellow Flu, the Xi Jinping Bat Flu are in development.  Nations are racing to find ways to mitigate this crap and what makes it worse, the Chi-Coms are close-lipped as to how exactly the virus came about and from whence the evil s**t came.  Speculation centers on the Wuhan wet market where all manner of animals, fowl, insects, and seafood are crammed together, all defecating atop one another and being slaughtered with one another with blood, fecal matter, and other festering, noxious body fluids combine and get onto human beings.  What a barbaric f**king place.  YOU are what YOU eat.
  74. 2021 Sunday:  BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE I: First thing we learned today is that the Biden administration is spending $87 million of taxpayer monies to house hundreds of thousands along the southern border, mostly in Arizona and Texas.  (Note- Joe, if you deported everyone, you wouldn’t have to spend a dime).   Next, on ABC News today, Antonio Mayorkas, director of Homeland Security announced that ‘the border is secure, closed, the U.S. is expelling illegal aliens, so don’t come.’  (Note- does anyone believe this duck crap?).  At the same time, Jenn Pellegrino of One America News was interviewing an illegal alien who said that because ‘Joe Biden is in the White House, he and everyone else is coming as Donald Trump wouldn’t let anyone in.’  There you go- what more evidence does the reader require to understand that feeble Joe Biden wants to flood the country with illegal aliens? 
  75. 2021 Sunday A:  BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE II:  Congressman Michael McCaul, R-TX 10th congressional district, predicts that by the early summer, at least 1 million Third World illegal aliens will have crossed our border with millions more to come.  (Note- folks, we are being invaded as though we are in a war.  By the time government wakes up to the danger, it will be too late).   Congressman McCaul also says the Biden administration ‘could easily solve the crisis by returning to Trump era policies on the border.’  Likewise, Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, echoes McCaul by saying that the Dems ‘dumped three Trump era policies that would solve the crisis now.’  Meanwhile, Customs and Border Patrol- the CBP- says it’s going to begin releasing illegal aliens into the heartland of Texas sans any court dates.   Elsewhere, Senator Rob Portman, R-OH, says that there ‘must be transparency along the border so it’s time for the Biden administration to remove the blackout down there.’  (Note- you would think that IF the Biden people thought they were doing a bang-up job, they would want the world to see exactly what they are doing.  But they don’t!  What is up with that?). Portman also says CBP must be given additional resources.  Finally, Sheriff Mark Daniels of Cochise County, Arizona, says that ‘Joe Biden halting construction on the border wall has driven Mexican cartels- especially the Sinaloa cartel- to increased violence.’  How about doing something for law and order, Joe?
  76. 2021 Sunday B: JOE BIDEN NEWS– Joe Biden has now officially gone TWO WHOLE MONTHS sans a press conference with reporters.  Supposedly, the ancient stumbler is going to address the entire planet on March 25, 2021.  (Note- stay aware of deep fakes and multiple takes.  Just saying).  Next, China experts say that the reason for Beijing’s hyper-aggressiveness with the Biden administration is that they believe they have him by the balls due to Wall Street and son Hunter Biden’s ties with Chinese Communist Party.   Gordon Chang says that ‘neither Russia or the People’s Republic of China has any respect for Joe Biden and believe they can push the senile old coot around.’  Next, Joe Biden dumps a Trump era student loan debt forgiveness program and then forgives $1 billion in student loan debt.
  77. 2021 Sunday C: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I: Soon-to-be-gone Congresswoman Liz Cheney, R-WY, is among a group of lawmakers seeking to boycott the Beijing Winter Olympics 2022.   Speaking of sports, the Atlanta Motor Speedway is holding a NASCAR event and expects at least 20,000 people to show up and enjoy the spectacle.   Meanwhile, COVID-19 claims one of the NCAA March Madness Men’s Games, the matchup between Virginia Commonwealth University-Oregon University.  Elsewhere, the mayor of Miami Beach, Florida, Dan Gelber, declares a state of emergency as spring breakers descend on the Sunshine State’s beaches.   Speaking of Florida, Governor Ron DeSantis bans the teaching of the bogus and highly racist philosophy- Critical Race Theory- and instead, seeks to have teachers become proficient in the teaching of civics, history, and government.   Next, Trump senior adviser Jason Miller says that President Trump will be back on social media within 2-3 months with a new social media app.’  Excellent.
  78. 2021 Sunday D: FOREIGN/OVERSEAS NEWS– the Japanese announce that they are going to restore their role in global affairs and that its military will aid the United States in protecting the independence of Taiwan and other nations under threat from Beijing.  Welcome back, Japan.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Deputy Defense Secretary Kathleen Hicks says that China is a pacing challenge for the U.S. military as China’s elites believe they can push the United States around.   Elsewhere, the U.S. intercepts- get this- chatter among Iranian Revolutionary Guard bigwigs discussing an attack on Fort McNair in Washington, D.C. That would be something if these dimwits attempted a brazen attack like that.  Then again, with Joe Biden in the White House, he’d probably give them a pass.
  79. 2021 Sunday E: FOREIGN/OVERSEAS NEWS II: Afghan state media announced the unplanned visit by U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin.  He arrived in Kabul today to hold talks with members of the Afghan government.  Elsewhere, thousands of protesters are flooding the streets of Istanbul, Turkey, protesting Turkish thug dictator Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s signing of a bill with which to withdraw the once great Ottoman Empire from an international treaty recognizing and protecting the rights of women.  Many believe this will empower murderers, abusers, and rapists to reach new heights in punishing women and girls.
  80. 2021 Sunday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, blasts the Dems over their hypocrisy on getting rid of the filibuster rule in the U.S. Senate.  Next, Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, says the Dems are trying to SILENCE him for exposing their bogus narrative on ‘what happened’ on January 06, 2021, the day the Dems (and some stupid RINOs) are trying to spin as some sort of violent and armed insurrection.  He won’t adhere to their narrative and continues sharing the truth with anyone who will listen.  God bless you, Senator Johnson!   Elsewhere, the Dems are shattering fund-raising records this year.  The DNC has already raised $18.4 million.  Wow.  Meanwhile, Democrat lawmakers in the Empire State are being pressured to return ALL donations given to them by outgoing Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo.  Now that the man is besieged by people in his state who are openly demanding he either resign or be removed via impeachment, NO one wants to be tied with this POS.  Finally, the Massage Parlor Massacres could not have come at a better time for the Democrats- they are redoubling efforts to remove lawful gun owners’ firearms.  Go figure.  “Never let a good crisis go to waste.”
  81. 2021 Sunday G: COVID-19 NEWS– as Joe Biden continues braying about the success of ‘his’ COVID-19 vaccine plan, Dr. Moncef Slaoui says that ‘President Donald J. Trump bears 90-percent of the responsibility for getting the vaccine made and distributed.’  Joe Biden does not want to hear that.  Next, the Centers for Disease Control reports the successful vaccinations of 3.1 million customers in a single day for ‘Joe Biden’s vaccine.’  Whoa.
  82. 2021 Sunday H: ECONOMIC NEWS– Former Treasury official Lawrence “Larry” Summers says, ‘Joe Biden’s economic program (if one can call it such) is the least responsible in the past 40 years.’  Amen.  Meanwhile, Trump economic adviser Peter Navarro says, that elections do indeed have consequences and the stolen election of 2020 has lots of consequences.’   Elsewhere, tax expert Julio Gonzalez says that ‘illegal aliens are the big winners of the Joe Biden stimulus (PORKULUS) plan and NOT Americans.’  Ouch.
  83. 2021 Sunday I: OPINION NEWS– Fareed Zakaria of GPS- Global Public Square- said today that the ‘United States military is so much better than that of the People’s Republic of China that the U.S. does not need to spend the kind of money we have been spending on national defense.’  Zakaria says that Beijing is putting more money into its Belt and Roads Initiative with which it will tie large portions of the globe into a commonwealth of sorts that will benefit all nations attached to it.  According to Zakaria, the U.S. is spending more money than it spent at the height of the Vietnam War- adjusted for inflation, of course- so why are we so frightened of communist China?  Fareed sounds rather like a shill for the Chinese Communist Party now, doesn’t he?
  84. 2021 Sunday J: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET– Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 122,964,412 confirmed cases, +1,081,972, 2,711,747, confirmed deaths, +18,941, and 69,647,959 confirmed recoveries, +614,688.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 30,011,181 confirmed cases, up 105,688 from yesterday’s reporting, 547,453 confirmed deaths, UP 2,322, and 116,813,739 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.  NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 218,986 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- El Presidente, in another two-and-a-half weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the coronavirus running amok.    
  85. 2021 Sunday K: 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: 3,641,664 confirmed cases, 57,501 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,773 confirmed cases, 454 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 357,376 confirmed cases, 5,224 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the U.S., the territory of Guam: currently, they have 8,749 confirmed cases, 135 confirmed deaths, and 6,707 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 827,772 confirmed cases, 6,092 confirmed deaths, and 802,337 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Iraq, the birthplace of civilization- 789,390 cases of the ‘VID, 13,969 confirmed deaths and 710,699 confirmed recoveries.
  86. 2021 Sunday M: NATIONAL GAS PRICE AND U.S. NATIONAL DEBT– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.879 per gallon, $3.604 in Hawaii, and $3.316 in Washington state.   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,078,445,971,103 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.  Cloward and Piven running amok.
  87.  2021 Sunday N: CRIME NEWS– Law enforcement officials finally arrested a murderous POS named Sean Michael Lannon.  U.S. marshals have been pursuing this guy, tying him to at least five murders including that of his ex-wife.  When they finally arrested him, he confessed to at least 16 murders of various people across the country.  Give this guy the chair!
  88. 2022 Monday: Stay tuned…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next effort by folk trio, Danko/Fjeld/Andersen- “Ridin’ on the Blinds”- came out on April 10, 1994.  Once again, the band performed gloriously on acoustic tunes, tunes that united the trio in a shared vision for their musical future.  The lineup featured Rick Danko (bass, guitars, lead and backing vocals), Jonas Fjeld (lead and backing vocals and guitars), Eric Andersen (lead and backing vocals, keyboards), as well as accompaniment from- most notably- the Band’s Garth Hudson on keyboards and accordions- among numerous others.  We hope you will seek this one out, give it a good listen, and make it apart of your daily listening pleasure- you will be glad you did.

55. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 2022

2021 Wednesday Q: Ghana receives 600,000 doses of AstraZeneca’s vaccine for the Chi-Vi vaccine via the United Nations program with which vaccines will be distributed to low-income countries such as Ghana. The United States develops the vaccine in record time and then the U.N. via its COVAX program sends them to Third World countries. Good, let them be the guinea pigs.

  61. 2017 Friday: J.C. Penney- the company that set the standard for commercial retail stores- announces that it’s going to close between 120 to 130 stores as well as two distribution centers.   The store has made poor decisions by bringing in younger, more hip leaders in the organization that have trashed the brand and ruined the legacy of its founder.
  62. 2018 Saturday: The U.N. Security Council unanimously demanded a 30-day cease-fire across Syria to deliver humanitarian aid and evacuate the wounded, as the death toll reached 500 from a Syrian bombing campaign in the rebel-held suburbs of Damascus.  Unfortunately, the cease-fire failed to take hold.  Elsewhere, the body of the Rev. Billy Graham arrived at the library bearing his name in Charlotte, N.C., where he would lie in repose for two days.  Meanwhile, at the Winter Olympics in South Korea, American men won the gold medal in curling in a decisive upset of Sweden; it was only the second curling medal in U.S. history.  (Editor’s note: curling is a bullshit sport).  Finally, in the aftermath of the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre 2018 at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School, WOKE liberal corporations such as Hertz Rent-a-Car, United Airlines, Delta Airlines, and First National Bank of Omaha sever ties with the National Rifle Association.
  63. 2019 Sunday: In the 91st Academy Awards, “Bohemian Rhapsody,” the film about Freddie Mercury and Queen[x] wins four big awards while “Black Panther,” “Green Book” (Best Picture), and “Roma” which had four awards.  It was tough going between “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “Black Panther,” both films were extremely popular.  It’s a shame Chadwick Boseman couldn’t have won Best Actor.
  64. 2020 Tuesday: Armenia closes its border with Iran following the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus in that country.  Oman- in the Persian Gulf- shuts off air traffic from Iran into its country.  In Italy, another 74 cases of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu brings the country’s number of cases to 224 what with another four fatalities.  Next, due to South Korea’s outbreak of coronavirus, Vietnam announces its airlines will suspend flight to the country the following day.   In the United States, reported cases are now at 53 as they begin to spread in the Pacific Northwest.  Pakistan’s airlines suspend flights to the People’s Republic of China as it attempts to arrest the number of cases coming to its borders.  Around the Persian Gulf, various nations are reporting their first cases while in Europe, Spain reports its first cases.  
  65. 2021 Wednesday: Day 36 of the Biden Regime- Sean Hannity reports that the Democrats  are striving to find a way with which, they can remove the nuclear codes from the responsibilities of the president, i.e., the commander-in-chief which in this case is ‘Joe Biden’ (in truth, Barack Obama via Kamala Harris).  House Democrats want to hold sole authority for launching nuclear weapons should the necessity arise the United States needs to launch them.  Why would the Democrats be striving to weaken the powers of the president? 
  66. 2021 Wednesday A: Much to the disgust of New York Attorney General Leticia James, the ever-volatile chief lawmaker of the Empire State, no charges will be filed against the seven Rochester police officers involved in the death of druggie Daniel Prude, a doped-up fool who was naked but for a spit hood on his head.  Ms. James sought to make the case a focal point of her career, but her hopes were dashed when a grand jury found the officers behaved within department policy. 
  67. 2021 Wednesday B: Failed Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says that he is a ‘yes vote’ on the confirmation of Judge Merrick Garland to be the nation’s next attorney-general.  “Cocaine Mitch” joins ranks with several other RINOs to announce a ‘yes vote’ for the wily evader of all pertinent questions.   Elsewhere, 13 Republican House members urge the FCC chair to back ‘free speech’ over leftist demands for ‘censorship’ of all speech other than what they approve.   Meanwhile, the Dems hold hearings on Capitol Hill in the House with which to forge ahead of de-platforming One America News, Newsmax, and Fox News Channel.  We expect they will soon come after Talk Radio as well as online speech in blogs.    Finally, 14 House Republicans are requesting the FBI provide information on just how deep Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell’s ties go to communist China.  The Republicans want to know just how compromised the government is by the Democrat’s schlepping of a Chi-Com intelligence agent.  We want to know the answers, too.
  68. 2021 Wednesday C: The White House press briefing room is cleared and cleaned after an unnamed reporter tests positive for the Chi-Com Bat Flu.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Supreme Court is set to hold hearings on Republican-requested curbs on the Democrats scheme to federalize ALL voting via the H.R. 1 ‘For the People’ bulls**t bill currently being pushed by the Dems.  This bill is wholly unconstitutional.   Elsewhere, RINO Congressman Fred Upton, Michigan 6th District, finds himself censured yet again over his recent vote to expel Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene from the haloed halls of Congress over her support of President Donald J. Trump.  Cass County, Michigan, slapped the censure on him today.   Finally, former President Barack Hussein Obama says that ‘white resentment and resistance’ is what stalled discussion of reparations for those descended from slaves.[xi]
  69. 2021 Wednesday D:  Free Speech founder Bradley Smith says the ‘Democrats targeting conservatives is a rank abuse of power.’  Yet, the Democrats are working overtime to prevent conservative speech being heard anywhere.  Elsewhere, another federal judge bans the enforcement of the ban of deporting illegal aliens.  Under the Biden regime, ALL illegal aliens can remain in the country.  Also- why aren’t the Democrats weeping and wailing over the big blue Quonset huts down along the southern border filled to the brim with the 5,000 illegal aliens being apprehended per day?  When Trump was president, they were gnashing their teeth, smearing their fetid bodies with ashes, donning sackcloth, and scourging their backs.  Now, not so much.  Hypocrites.
  70. 2021 Wednesday E: The International Olympic Committee is preparing to announce its preferred bidder for the 2032 Summer Olympics.  Who could it be?  Russia?  The Chi-Coms?  Iran?  We’ll have to wait and see.  Speaking of Iran, people are speculating that all the missiles being fired out of the crap-hole country are a message directed at the ‘Biden administration.’   Elsewhere, everyone was awaiting information as to when the court date for aged rocker Bruce “I Love Obama” Springsteen[xii] were going to be.  Then, we heard the court threw out the drunken driving charges against the “Boss.”   In other sad news, the Cancel Culture now labels the movie, “Grease,” as being BAD.  It’s bad because they claim there’s misogyny, that it’s sexist, that it’s homophobic, and that it slut-shames.’  Gee whiz sounds like a movie everyone should see.  This is the trouble when a bunch of morons attempts to judge the past by the present.  Remember lefties, one day, YOU will be the ones a future generation is judging.   
  71. 2021 Wednesday F: A recent anthropological study suggests that when early humans came to the Americas between 10-12 thousand years ago (although evidence suggests human habitation in North America as far back as 60,000 years), dogs traveled here with them.   In other news, an upcoming U.S. report lays the blame for the death of U.S.-Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi directly at the feet of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman. 
  72. 2021 Wednesday G: Democrats are set to vote on their PORKULUS, aka the COVID-19 Relief Bill this Friday.  Out of $1.9 trillion (money being borrowed from the Chi-Coms), $350 billion is going to state and local governments (think Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, Mayor Bill Di Blasio, Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom, Mayor Eric Garcetti, and other BIG BLUE STATE liberal locales.  Another $86 billion is going to fund union pension plans (think teachers’ unions and the like), $129 billion to schools, whether they reopen or not, another $15 billion to Medicaid expansion (think FREE healthcare for illegal aliens), $30 billion for public transit (liberals hate private cars), and at least $500 million for the arts, humanities, museums, and libraries.  ONLY 9-percent of this appalling amount of cash is going to Chinese Virus needs.  Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says, ‘it’s crazy to borrow money to fund this liberal wish list of bailouts, handouts, giveaways, and bull crap.’  However, more than 150 BIG BUSINESS executives support this insanity as they hope to latch their grubby mitts onto this handout of money borrowed from Beijing.    
  73. 2021 Wednesday H: Congressman Michael Waltz, R-FL, serving on the House task force on the Chi-Coms says there is NO way the Chi-Coms should host the Olympics and that to have the American flag flying in the PRC would be wrong.  The Chi-Coms bear full responsibility for the deaths of victims of the ‘VID and that to honor them would be to dishonor everyone else. 
  74. 2021 Wednesday I: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 112,214,084 confirmed cases, +389,387, 2,487,568, confirmed deaths, +10,900, and 63,368,513 confirmed recoveries, +269,020.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 28,526,532 confirmed cases, up 63,214 from yesterday’s reporting, 507,469 confirmed deaths, UP 2,234, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP- UNKNOWN- same number as the last four-plus week’s number- WTF.  NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 178,955 CHI-VI DEATHS.  Joe, you said you had a plan- where the hell is it you feeble old Chi-Com stooge?  It seems that everyone around ‘Pro-China Joe’ is ‘Pro-Chi-Coms.’
  75. 2021 Wednesday J: 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: 3,543,162 confirmed cases, 49,895 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,000 confirmed cases, 431 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 339,051 confirmed cases, 4,947 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Oklahoma: currently, they have 421,010 confirmed cases, 4,264 confirmed deaths, and 403,159 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 759,572 confirmed cases, 5,634 confirmed deaths, and 712,555 confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other country, shall we?  Mexico: 2,052,266 confirmed cases, 181,809 confirmed deaths, and 1,607,869 confirmed recoveries.    In other interesting Chinese Virus news, medical researchers now fear coronavirus variants.  Will they subject us to continued lockdowns, restrictions, and intimidation?  F**k them.  Next, the ‘Biden administration’ says it’s shipping 14.5 million doses of the Wuhan Virus Crisis vaccine to the states this week.   Finally, the FDA says that Johnson & Johnson’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine meets emergency usage standards.  
  76. 2021 Wednesday K:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,961.86, UP 424.51 points (+1.35%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,597.97, UP 132.77 points (+0.99%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,925.43, UP 44.06 points (+1.14%).  The price of GOLD is $1,804.00 per troy oz., +6.10 (+0.34%) while the price of SILVER is $28.01 per troy ounce, +0.15 (+0.52%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,275.40 per troy oz, +17.50 (+1.39%) while the price of COPPER is $4.32 per pound, +0.02 (+0.51%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,442.50 per troy oz, +89.50 (+3.80%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $63.45 per barrel, +0.23 (+0.36%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.36.  Next, one American dollar equals 0.000020 Bitcoin.  Meanwhile, new home sales are up by 4-percent whereas new mortgages are down by 11-percent.
  77. 2021 Wednesday L: The state attorney general of West Virginia- Patrick Morrissey- rejects lawmakers’ calls to ban or censor news programming.   Meanwhile, Donald Trump teases his upcoming speech at CPAC by suggesting that he’s going to blast enfeebled Joe Biden and tease his upcoming 2024 run for the White House.  This would explain why the Dems are seeking to make Joe Biden a ‘prime minister’ and neuter his presidency (if you can call it that).  Next, noted legal scholar Jonathan Turley suggests the ‘new red scare’ is intimidating conservative voices into silence.  Regarding this, Arizona GOP Congressman Andy Biggs says the ‘pressure on media platform providers to silence conservative voices is intense.  Finally, Palm Beach County, Florida, refuses to lower flags for famed radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh. 
  78. 2021 Wednesday M: Stay tuned for tonight’s Powerball and Super Lotto drawings.  First, here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3537 with a $23 million on the line: 07, 34, 38, 44, 47, and Mega 07.  Out of 113,786 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but no Mega for a prize of $18,478.  One ticket was sold at a Chevron in Los Angeles, CA  while the second was at Sky Fuel in El Cajon, CA 92021.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball #823 with a $90 million jackpot just waiting to be grabbed by some lucky individual: 04, 33, 43, 53, 65, and Powerball 21.  Out of 56,233 winning tickets, ONE person had FOUR numbers PLUS the Powerball for a prize of $32,139.
  79. 2021 Wednesday N: A former aid to New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo details the ongoing sexual harassment she suffered at the hands of this slack-jawed bottom-feeder.  Shame, Andrew, shame.  Elsewhere, a misguided poll reports that a majority of Republicans back Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion Chinese Virus Relief Bill.  We do not believe this report.   Meanwhile, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy blasts the Democrats’ attempt at de-platforming conservative news media sites.  He also says that President Donald J. Trump’s help in retaking the House for the GOP is going to be extremely important.   Next, failed- and- censured Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney, RINO, continues bad-mouthing President Donald J. Trump, blaming him for the Antifa- and- Black Lives Matter- led Capitol Hill Riots of January 6, 2021, the very same riots used by Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi to turn Washington, D.C.’s Capitol Hill and White House into a Baghdad-like Green Zone.  Some wag on Newsmax said that Congresswoman Cheney is auditioning for a future job on CNN (or better- MSNBC).  Liz, from all of us to you, “SHUT YOUR RINO MOUTH!”  Congressman McCarthy whip this RINO into line or strip her of her committee assignments the same way the RINOs did Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor-Greene.   
  80. 2021 Wednesday O: Grant Stinchfield reports on Newsmax that Chi-Com facial recognition software is being used in the United States.   As he says, ‘overreaching surveillance in the U.S. is infringing on every American’s civil liberties.’  As he says, the Chi-Coms tested the software on Uighur Muslims who slave away in Xinjiang concentration camps on behalf of Coca-Cola, Nike, Apple, and other global corporations (as well as have their organs harvested for the global organ market) and now with the help of Democrats like ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden and others are transforming the entire world into a vast surveillance state.  Speaking of ‘Pro-China Joe,’ the old coot he’s also revoking Trump-imposed bans on the numbers of foreign workers and Green Card holders allowed into the United States.  In a country beset by Chi-Com-caused Panda Pandemic unemployment, ‘Old Joe’ is flooding the country with hundreds of thousands (and soon millions) of people who are going to Americans’ jobs.  Time for the RED STATES to form a new country and abandon ship.   In other news, calls for the impeachment of Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo continue to grow led by Democrats in state government.
  81. 2021 Wednesday P: Jen Psaki says 11 million illegal alien fence-jumpers and river-swimmers and visa-overstays will soon have a pathway to citizenship.  The Dems continue braying about ’11 million, 11 million, 11 million’ when in fact, sources within the government say the number is closer to 30 to 50 million illegal aliens hiding in the shadows except, of course, when they commit crimes on one another and against U.S. citizens.  When the 11 million illegals are ‘legalized,’ they are going to receive free health care, free housing, free food stamps, free in-state tuition, free transportation, free this, free that while American citizens foot the bill and languish without jobs. 
  82. 2021 Wednesday Q: Ghana receives 600,000 doses of AstraZeneca’s vaccine for the Chi-Vi vaccine via the United Nations program with which vaccines will be distributed to low-income countries such as Ghana.  The United States develops the vaccine in record time and then the U.N. via its COVAX program sends them to Third World countries.  Good, let them be the guinea pigs.  Next, the White House says a call between President Biden and Saudi Arabia’s King Salman will ‘happen soon.’  White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters Wednesday that a classified U.S. report confirms the fact that Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman ordered the hit on Jamal Khashoggi.  C’ est la vie.
  83. 2022 Thursday: Join us later in the day…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album released by Fairport Convention- “Chicago 1970”- came out on August 07, 2020.  The album featured a stripped down, lean, mean, music-fighting machine featuring NO female vocalist for the first time in the group’s history.  However, the band did feature Richard Thompson (guitars, vocals, and other stringed instruments), Simon Nichol (guitars, vocals), Dave Pegg (basses, mandolins, vocals), Dave Swarbrick (fiddle, mandolins, vocals, and viola), and Dave Mattacks (drums and percussion).  You can see, hear, and feel Richard Thompson’s growing power within the band, power that would eventually propel him out on his own being a rocker at heart.  We love this album as we know you will so why waste time?  Seek it out now, give it a listen, and make it a part of your daily listening enjoyment.  You will be glad you did.  Undoubtedly!

TODAY IN HISTORY, THURSDAY FEBRUARY 24, 2022, BLOG POST #4,452

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

Wednesday, February 24, 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…


Thursday, February 24, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We presented the music of Quicksilver Messenger Service on two different occasions.  The first commenced on Friday, 25-March-2011 through Monday, 04-April-2011.  The second cycle with newer albums began on Tuesday, 20-August-2013 through Monday, 02-September-2013.  We hope you will check the albums out by visiting whatever site you do for nothing but the absolute best in rock music.

[ii] Juan Peron’s wife, Eva Peron, is the woman who that dingbat from the Bronx, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez models her loser self after which is why we have bestowed upon her the name, “Baby Evita.”

[iii] We began promoting the music of the Steve Miller Band beginning on Wednesday, 27-July-2011 through Wednesday, 24-August-2011 and then did a second stint on Sunday, 20-April-2014.  We hope you will check the music of this amazing San Francisco, California, acid-rock blues band.

[iv] We definitely look forward to presenting the music of Joe Cocker, the famed British ex-bricklayer who blew the minds of the world at the 1969 Woodstock Music and Arts Festival.  Please stay tuned for further developments.

[v] Not sure when we will begin promoting the music of George Thorogood but when we do you will be the first to know. 

[vi] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.    The album, “Help!” appeared on Tuesday, 15-November-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[vii] In 2020, Democrats are whining that Donald Trump wanted a quid pro quo from Ukraine to get U.S. military aid.  Yet here, we have a prime example as to WHY and HOW foreign aid is doled out by countries around the world.  President Jimmy Carter said that ‘he would consider human rights abuses before doling out American aid to countries around the world.  Quid pro quo?  You had better flipping believe it and a damned good one in our view so Democrats, stop with the f**king sniveling, enough is enough already.

[viii] In 2019, the question is, “Is the late John Dingell looking UP or is he looking DOWN?

[ix] Many believe Barack Obama should be disqualified as a president because most believe he was born outside the United States which would ban him from ever seeking the highest office in the land.  At the very least, an asterisk should be placed by his name in all U.S. history books.

[x] We began promoting the music of Queen- as well as its individual members (Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor, and John Deacon)- on Monday, 14-January-2019 through Monday, 01-April-2019.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[xi] The real reason as to WHY talk of reparations stalled is because (1) it’s crazy, there is NO one alive today descended from slavery prior to 1865 and (2) Democrats love talking about it but will never do anything to solve it as once they solve it, they can no longer use it as a drum to beat around the clock.  Besides, there are so many interracial couples, kids, and others so how is it going to work, is the WHITE spouse going to hand the BLACK spouse a check?  What’s more, what the liberals never tell you is that like the COVID-19 relief, the recipients will have to pay taxes on this money.  When it comes to liberals there are no FREE lunches.  Period.  It’s also important to note that Obama would never have been elected TWICE without white voters so Mr. ‘Unqualified President (due to being born in Kenya and not in the United States) Obama, STFU.

[xii] We will never promote the music of this no-talent POS.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

19. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 19, 2022

1943 Tuesday A: As Italian Alpine units and intermingled Axis allies began pulling out of Popovka and heading west, the Battle of Novaya Postoyalovka commenced. Soviet forces lurking in the town were awaiting whatever Axis units might be fleeing in their direction and planned a nasty surprise. This battle would continue for more than 30 hours as various units of Italian Alpini, and Italian 8th Army units attempted to storm it making this one of the largest actions fought by Italians in the Soviet Union.

  33. 1982 Tuesday: In South Bend, Indiana, future mayor of his hometown and then 19th U.S. Transportation Secretary “Mayor Pete” Buttigieg is born on this date.  As head of the U.S. Department of Transportation, he would serve under President Joseph R.

  49. 2016 Tuesday: At a rally in Ames, Iowa, former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin officially endorses Donald J. Trump for president of the United States.  Meanwhile, as the war continues to rage in Syria, the government of Bashar al-Assad reports the deaths of far too many Syrian army troops in the fight against ISIS.  Speaking of the terrorist criminal organization, ISIS announces the death of its beloved ‘Jihadi John,’ blown up in an airstrike back in November.
  50. 2017 Thursday: Mexico extradites drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman to the United States on this date to face justice.  Elsewhere, in Palmyra, Syria, ISIS scum behead 12 captives.  Meanwhile, President-elect Donald J.

  51. 2018 Friday: Olympic gold medalist Aly Raisman joined dozens of other women and girls in confronting her former doctor Larry Nassar, at his sentencing hearing for multiple sexual assaults; she warned the scumbag that the testimony of the “powerful army” of survivors would haunt him in prison.  Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms- in the spirit of Mao Zedong- consider writing the “Xi Jinping Thought” into the state constitution after already adding the dictator’s words to the party constitution.  Don’t you just love these authoritarian thugs?  What’s next?  A global pandemic?
  52. 2019 Saturday: The Covington High School kids from Kentucky are at the U.S. Capitol on this date wearing MAGA hats and celebrating America.  As they celebrate, the Black Hebrew Israelites, a hate group, is calling them all manner of vile and despicable names.  This does not dampen their celebration.   This is when an aged Indian chief named Nathan Phillips, a man who supposedly served with distinction in Vietnam, a member of the Indigenous Peoples’ March, stirs up trouble with the kids.  The phony Indian chieftain intruded into the mass of the young kids, banging his drum and chanting war songs, and got right into the face of young Sandman who stood silently and reverently.  The news media would slant the incident into making the high schoolers a bunch of racist bigots and lovers of the KKK which shocked the ENTIRE PLANET!  However, approximately two years later after attorney Linn Wood went after the Fake News Media, young Mr. Sandman would become fabulously wealthy after the New York Times and several TV channels had to pay tens of millions of dollars for defamation and slander. 
  53. 2019 Saturday A: In London, England, drummer/percussionist with the Michael Schenker Group- Edward “Ted” McKenna, died at the age of 68 from complications from a routine hernia operation.  Besides playing with MSG, he played with loads of other bands.
  54. 2020 Sunday: In the AFC Championship Game, the Kansas City Chiefs, 14-4, beat the Tennessee Titans, 11-8, by a final score of 35-24.  Meanwhile, in the NFC Championship Game, the San Francisco 49ers, 15-3, beat the Green Bay Packers, 14-4, by a final score of 37-20.  Super Bowl LIV will be between the 49ers and the Chiefs.   Elsewhere, in a rare event in Honolulu, Hawaii, cops go to evict a man who responds by shooting three of them, killing two, and then sets his home ablaze.  The fire leaps to four neighboring homes with the suspect dying in the blaze.  Meanwhile, a nightclub shooting in Kansas City, Missouri, kills two- including the shooter- while injuring another 15 people.
  55. 2021 Tuesday: A Politico poll (note- Politico is extremely far-left in its politics) suggests that 1-in-5 Republicans want President Trump convicted in his second impeachment trial.  This also means that 4-in-5 Republicans do NOT want to see him convicted so which number makes more sense to you?  One-in-five Republicans are RINOs and should be expelled from the party.  Period.  Speaking of the inaccuracy of political polls, Gallup reports that ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden’s favorability among the American people stands at 57-percent.  Everyone with half a brain or more understands that this is BS.  Elsewhere, Dick Morris tells Newsmax that ‘polls are being manipulated to hurt President Donald J. Trump as he leaves office.’ 
  56. 2021 Tuesday A: Speaking of the incoming ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden administration, we learned today that the Department of Homeland Security has hired a private security firm, Hana Industries for $1.6 million to the end of the month to ensure the 46th president’s personal security.  This says that ‘Pro-China Joe’ can trust no one in federal law enforcement, the National Guard, or the U.S. Secret Service.  It also shows that the 46th president is a usurper, that he (if he remains cognizant of reality) and those around him know implicitly that he did NOT win the 2020 Presidential Election.  What’s even worse is that this demonstrates that we will now have a ‘secret police,’ a ‘Gestapo,’ if you will, sworn to protect this usurper and to punish his enemies.  Everyone wake up and take note.   Regarding the National Guard’s role in securing the Inauguration, Republican Congressman Matt Waltz of Florida says that fellow Congressman Steve Cohen’s attacks on the Guard are insulting.
  57. 2021 Tuesday B: Four of ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden’s picks for Cabinet positions are facing U.S. Senate committees today in confirmation hearings.  First, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, next Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, Avril Haines- director of national security, and Alejandro Mayorkas, director of Homeland Security.   Oh, Beijing Biden also picks a tranny to be his assistant secretary of health.  Good for you for checking off all the boxes there, Mr. President Biden.  In the same vein, RINO Senator Lindsey Graham says, ‘watch out for Biden ushering in a radical agenda as quickly as possible,’ (one we believe you are going to support, you fair-weather friend).  Outgoing U.S. Secretary Mike Pompeo accuses the Chi-Coms of committing genocide on their Uighur and other ethnic and religious minorities.  Oh- for some reason, the U.S. Department of State prematurely announced the ‘departure of President Donald J. Trump.’  What’s up with that?
  58. 2021 Tuesday C: Quinnipiac reports that outgoing President Donald J. Trump’s final approval ratings are 34-percent approval and 61-percent disapproval.  This supports Dick Morris’ assertions earlier in this post.  Morris also says it will take a while to appreciate ALL of the accomplishments of the 45th president (which is WHY we believe they will strip him from the history and record books).  Speaking of Mr. Trump, many fear that all the great accomplishments he had on stopping illegal immigration, sound tax policy, and holding the Chi-Coms accountable for their actions now are at risk with feeble Old Joe Biden entering the White House.  He will strip them all away.  The country will never be the same ever again.  Speaking of Trump-related stories, the Cancel Culture at Harvard University wants ALL real and honorary degrees given to Trump administration officials stripped away, denounced, and tossed into the dumpster.  Meanwhile, Canada begs the incoming 46th president ‘NOT to cancel the Keystone XL Pipeline on Day #1.’   
  59. 2021 Tuesday D: Famed pollster and commentator Doug Schoen is joining Newsmax.  Next, lawyers for ex-Michigan Governor Rick Snyder say the people hounding him over the Flint water crisis filed their papers in the wrong county.   Elsewhere, the N.Y. Mets fire their general manager over sexually explicit tweets to women.  Why do they never learn?  Say it in person or not at all, dummy.   Next, we learn that Trump attorney and ‘America’s Mayor’ Rudy Giuliani won’t represent the former 45th president at the second impeachment trial.  Meanwhile, the Wyoming GOP votes to censure RINO Congresswoman Liz Cheney.  Note to Wyoming: BOOT HER OUT NOW.  Finally, according to author David Horowitz, ‘Democrats HATE America’s founding principles.’
  60. 2021 Tuesday E: The U.S. secretary of the Army hammers the Department of Defense for its bureaucratic response to the Capitol Hill riots of January 6.  Speaking of this, forever-angry Hillary Clinton bellows that we ‘need a 9-11-style commission to dig into Donald Trump’s role in encouraging violence at the U.S. Capitol on the sixth day of January 2021.’  People had a right to be angry, Hillary, even though more evidence continues coming to light daily showing the shoe’s on the other foot, that House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi ordered Capitol Hill law enforcement to stand aside and to allow the Antifa infiltrators to enter the nation’s seat of government unmolested and unhindered.  When the evidence is out in full, the attention will shift onto the Democrats which is why Speaker Pelosi is sounding the alarm over the NSA’s upcoming investigation into BOTH ‘Pro-China Joe’ and son, Hunter Biden.   Meanwhile, Mike Lindell of ‘My Pillow’ fame says there is 100-percent evidence of Chi-Com and Canuck interference in the 2020 Presidential Election which is why Dominion Voting Systems now wants to sue him.
  61. 2021 Tuesday F: Outgoing President Donald J. Trump slaps communist Venezuela with a heap of brand-new sanctions.  He also tapes a farewell address which is smart- move to leave before ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden’s new (Chi-Com-backed) Secret Police can catch you.  Meanwhile, Congressman Jim Jordan, R-OH, slams ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden for his words that are encouraging an invasion force of illegal aliens heading north to our southern border.  Elsewhere, a political scientist finds himself charged for being an ‘unregistered agent of Iran.’  Watertown professor Kaveh Lotfolah Afrasiabi finds himself in trouble for schilling for the Iranians while claiming to be a neutral commentator.
  62. 2021 Tuesday G: Germany reports a NEW COVID-19 virus strain that is unlike the one discovered in the United Kingdom a few months back.  Meanwhile, Los Angeles County is lifting restrictions on air quality controls because Chi-Vi fatalities awaiting cremation are backing up and need to head to the furnace ASAP.  In other news, Georgia moves to certify the U.S. Senate run-off races of January 5, blaming President Trump for the loss of two GOP Senate seats we allege was the price to get rid of the 45th president.
  63. 2021 Tuesday H: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 95,963,947 confirmed cases, +784,744, 2,051,049, confirmed deaths, +17,408, and 52,854,855 confirmed recoveries, +398,238.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 24,290,413 confirmed cases, up 172,654 from yesterday’s reporting, 403,063 confirmed deaths, UP 1,807, and 10,511,075 confirmed recoveries, UP 43,157.
  64. 2021 Tuesday 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: 3,049,980 confirmed cases, 33,945 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases, 324 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 293,807 confirmed cases, 3,974 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: North Dakota: currently, they have 96,093 confirmed cases, 1,408 confirmed deaths, and 93,451 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 558,249 confirmed cases, 4,044 confirmed deaths, and 473,572 confirmed recoveries. 
  65. 2021 Tuesday J:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,950.52, UP 116.26 points (+0.38%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,197.18, UP 198.68 points (+1.53%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,798.91, UP 30.66 points (+0.81%).  The price of GOLD is $1,848.00 per troy oz., -0.20 (-0.01%) while the price of SILVER is $25.28 per troy ounce, -0.035 (-0.14%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,094.70 per troy oz, +2.70 (+0.25%) while the price of COPPER is $3.63 per pound, -0.0015 (-0.04%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,365.00 per troy oz, -30.10 (-1.26%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $53.18 per barrel, +0.20 (+0.38%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.48 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Iranian Rial equals 42,000.00.  That’s what a terrorism-based economy gets you…
  66. 2021 Tuesday K: Moron David Hogg calls for the resignation of Georgia Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene.  Screw him.  Next, we learn that Senator Mitch McConnell, R-KY, Congressman Kevin McCarthy, R-CA, and outgoing Vice President Mike Pence are going to skip outgoing President Donald J. Trump’s farewell ceremonies at White House tomorrow in order to attend the Inauguration Day ceremonies of “Pro-China Joe” Biden.  Scum.  Meanwhile, the FBI is continuing its search for the scumbag who placed pipe bombs around the Capitol Building on January 6.      
  67. 2021 Tuesday L: Outgoing Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Ken Cuccinelli tells Greg Kelly of Newsmax TV that the ‘inauguration of Joe Biden is going to be safe, that it was always going to be safe, but that House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi was requesting crew-operated 50-caliber machine guns on the roofs of armored vehicles as though we were keeping peace in Iraq or fighting in Afghanistan.  He said that ‘thankfully, the DOD nixed this request’ but what is clear and should be clear to every American is that what the Democrats are doing is NOT GOOD.  They KNOW we KNOW they stole the election, and that ‘Drooling Joe’ Biden is a usurper.  In the history of civil disturbances in this country, we have never had 50-caliber MG squads ready to light up demonstrators.  Folks, the ONLY demonstrators we will see tomorrow are the useful idiots- Antifa, BLM, and perhaps Iranian, Russian, and Chi-Com intel officers- stirring up violence among their bought-and-paid lackeys and bozos.   Meanwhile, Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-CO, the pistol-packing mama, disputes all charges made by crackhead Congressman Steve “Fried Chicken” Cohen, D-TN, who is equating her with being a Nazi and who claims that Congresswoman Boebert’s mother ‘participated in the Capitol Hill riots of January 6.’  What a worthless POS you are, “Fried Chicken” Cohen.  What we are going to see tomorrow is a Democrat-engineered “Beer Hall Putsch” in the streets of D.C. and across the country, a ginned up uprising they can use as an excuse for taking our civil liberties away from us.  
  68. 2021 Tuesday M: Next, please stick around for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1626 with an $865 million jackpot up for grabs (please see ‘P’ below).  When will Democrats tell lottery winners that their ‘patriotic obligations to the country are to hand over their entire pot (while still paying the taxes on it) so they can then redistribute the money to illegal aliens and Muslim refugees and whatever other crackpot, left-wing loony tunes schemes they have for seizing wealth?  It’s coming folks, just like the seizure of ALL privately-owned gold, silver, platinum, and whatever else the scumbags can get their grubby mitts on just like the requirement that every American middle-class family take either homeless people or an illegal alien family into their homes and provide them all care, comfort, and support.  Don’t laugh, people, don’t laugh.  
  69. 2021 Tuesday N: Incoming Secretary of State Anthony Blinken acknowledges that President Donald J. Trump has the correct views on communist China.  He also says that the new administration is going to reevaluate the North Korea ‘issue’ from top to bottom.  Note- we predict war within the first six months due to mismanagement, mistakes, and a fossilized view of the Hermit Kingdom.   We also learn today that incoming #47 plans to keep the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem but will press for Palestinian statehood.  We predict war coming here, too.  Next, numerous U.S. schools announce they won’t view the Inauguration Day events out of fear that violence will explode across the country and the little imps will tremble under their desks.  Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader (for today) “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell shows his true colors by driving a dagger into the back of the president who helped him accomplish things with the federal courts heretofore unseen in decades by saying Trump ‘fed lies’ to the Capitol Hill rioters of January 6, 2021.  You’ve seen the same tape we have, Mitch; you are almost guaranteeing the death of the GOP.  Good luck.
  70. 2021 Tuesday O: We learn that tomorrow a judge is going to decide the House race in New York’s upstate, the last race to be called: House District 22.  Former Congresswoman Claudia Tenney, Republican, holds a 29-vote lead over current Rep. Anthony Brindisi, Democrat.  Out of more than 325,000 votes cast, Tenney has clung to this slim margin of victory and the race should have been called long ago.  We will find out, hopefully, tomorrow.   Elsewhere, Twitter users BLAST CNN (Communist News Network, LOL) for seeking to ban Newsmax and perhaps One America News, too.  Getting Orwellian around here, folks.  Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal says that outgoing President Donald J. Trump could form the ‘Patriot Party.’  Finally, FOX News terminates long-time pundit Chris Stirewalt over his criticism of the network calling Arizona ‘early’ on Election Night.   Fox News could not handle the truth.
  71. 2021 Tuesday P: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1626 with an $865 million jackpot on the line: 10, 19, 26, 28, 50, and Mega 16.  Out of 716,770 winning tickets, ONE person had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $1,401,723.  Congratulations!  The pot is still climbing!  The winning ticket was sold at a 7/11 in Artesia, CA 90701.
  72. 2021 Tuesday Q: As Bea O’Malley predicted in her last three posts of last week, incoming President Joseph R. Biden is going to face tests on a variety of fronts.  Iranian commandoes and paratroopers are holding rehearsals for what might come in the Persian Gulf.  They are holding drills at the mouth of the Straits of Hormuz.  We expect the Chi-Coms, Russia, Venezuela, North Korea, even Cuba, to begin causing trouble because incoming #46 is not up to the task nor is his army of Obama ‘retreads.’  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump’s former adviser Steve Bannon gets one of the pardons the president signed today.
  73. 2022 Wednesday: Stick around  and uncover the dirty schemes the GOP is doing to cause Joe trouble…

ENDNOTES:

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

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

[iii] 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.

[iv] We hope to share the music of vocalist Robert Palmer at some point within the next decade.

[v] We hope to promote the music of America at some point within the next decade.  Please stay tuned for further information.

[vi] We hope to do the music of Carl Perkins the same time we do Johnny Cash and other pioneers of American rock and roll, country, and rockabilly music.  We hope you will stay tuned for the day when we do.

[vii] At some point, we will do the music of the Mamas and the Papas the same time we do the music of Sonny & Cher.  We hope you will continue awaiting that glorious day.

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

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

FOLKS, AS MUCH AS IT CAUSES ME SHAME TO BEG, SOMEONE HAS TO HELP JOE OTHERWISE, OUR PARTY IS GOING DOWN THE CRAPPER IN NOVEMBER…

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

  40. 1969 Friday: In Seattle, Washington, at the 2:58 minute mark of Round 5 of a scheduled 10 round heavyweight boxing match, slugger Jerry Quarry scores a TKO over his opponent, Charlie Reno.  Jerry’s pro record improved to 29-2-4 while Reno’s record’s dropped to 28-2-4.

  53. 2004 Saturday: CBS issued a damning independent review of mistakes related to a “60 Minutes Wednesday” report on President George W. Bush’s National Guard service and fired three news executives and a producer for their “myopic zeal” in rushing it to air, Dan Rather being among the fired.  Elsewhere, a mudslide in La Conchita, California, crushed homes and killed 10 residents.
  54. 2009 Saturday: Fate definitely can be a bitch.  A small vessel holding eight Somali pirates and their $3 million ransom from the now released supertanker MV Sirius Star capsizes in the Gulf of Aden, sending at least three of the scum to Davey Jones’ locker along with their ransom cash.  Wow.
  55. 2010 Sunday: Surpassing Germany, COMMUNIST China becomes the world’s largest exporter.   Elsewhere in the lovely Gaza Strip, three members of Palestinian Islamic Jihad group firing mortars into neighboring Israel got the surprise of their lives when they were killed.  We are unclear as to whether the human fecal matter’s weapon of choice blew up on them via a misfire or if the Israelis lit them up and left the remnants of their bodies littering the sand.  Either way, it was a good day for civilization.
  56. 2011 Monday: President Barack Obama is heading to Tucson, Arizona, for a memorial for the victims killed in the same shooting that critically injured Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, D-AZ 8th congressional district, and 13 others while claiming the lives of at least six.  A judge denies the shooter- nut Jared Loughner bail and remands the POS to the slammer.  Meanwhile, following the Saturday shooting, Congress plans to put forth new restrictions on 2nd Amendment rights.
  57. 2012 Tuesday: Mitt Romney wins the New Hampshire Republican Presidential Primary; Ron Paul places second and John Huntsman places third.  Elsewhere, Pakistan being a haven for crazed jihadists is not safe from the scourge they welcome with open arms.  In the Khyber Agency of the country, jihadist bombers carry out a massive suicide bombing that propels 29 people howling and shrieking up to Allah and leaves another 50 in one form of devastation or another. 
    WTF is wrong with these people!
  58. 2013 Thursday: A shooting at Taft Union High School in Taft, California, took place as troubled student, Brian Oliver, shot one individual, Bowe Cleveland, and wounded one other student, both of whom had repeatedly bullied him for being Gay.  Elsewhere, Quetta, Pakistan, is in a mess.  Following a bombing at a marketplace by members of the so-called ‘religion of peace’ that murdered 11 people and injured loads of others, a thug enters a billiard hall, detonates a suicide vest, and in the ensuing explosion, sends at least 81 followers of Islam to commune with Allah far sooner than any of them anticipated in doing and leaves another 120 in varying states of agony, many wishing they could have been among the first number and not among the latter.  Time for a reformation of the faith!
  59. 2014 Friday:  Indonesia’s Mount Sinabung erupts again, with pyroclastic flows streaming down the volcanic slope; the activity has caused the evacuation of 22,000 people from the danger zone around Sinabung.  Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms are once again up to no good.  Flexing their communist muscles, they slap a ‘fishing permit rule’ on all fishing vessels operating in the South China Sea, a body of water the communists claim as theirs.  This, of course, causes outrage from the United States, Vietnam, and the Philippines. 
  60. 2015 Saturday:  Commercial space company SpaceX successfully launches its Falcon 9 rocket, which has released the Dragon cargo ship into orbit to the International Space Station; the rocket returned to Earth after releasing the Dragon but had a rough landing.  Elsewhere, rock star David Bowie[xiii] died after battling cancer for 18 months.
  61. 2016 Sunday: Mexico begins the process of extraditing narcoterrorist Joaquim “El Chapo” Guzman to the United States.  Meanwhile, in Yemen, five people are killed in a bombing on a Doctors without Borders hospital.
  62. 2017 Tuesday: As Inauguration Day reports, ‘unsubstantiated reports’ arise that ‘Russia has compromising material on President-elect Donald J. Trump.’  This story turns out to be completely bogus.  Speaking of the crap the leftists are using against the incoming president, the confirmation hearings for Senator Jeff Sessions to become the next attorney general of the United States are interrupted (like it wasn’t planned, right) who storm the Senate chamber screaming, “No Trump!  No KKK!  No Fascist USA!’  Does anyone care to tell us this crap was not pre-planned?
  63. 2018 Wednesday: Following the amazing mark that Jeff Bezos’ personal wealth hits $106 billion due to a rise in the price of Amazon shares, he becomes the second man in the world to possess wealth in surplus of $100 billion.   This is a man that Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders- among others- want to destroy.  Meanwhile, President Trump digs in on his demand for funding for the border wall: “WE NEED THE WALL.”
  64. 2019 Thursday: According to data published in the scientific journal “Science,” the world’s oceans are warming faster than expected due to the burning of fossil fuels.  Many believe this is all propaganda designed to bring about the formation of a one-world government that leaders of the Third World will control and with which to redistribute the wealth of First World nations to S-hole countries.  Elsewhere, today is the first day that federal government workers miss a paycheck- all 800,000 of them- which leads to Democrats stirring up protests and ginning up anger among their street trash.
  65. 2020 Friday: Democrats are now blaming President Donald J. Trump for the Iranian shootdown of a Ukrainian jetliner that killed 176 people aboard her.  Yes, their arguments are convoluted and crazy but it’s all they have.  Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, chewing her cud[xiv], says she is ‘going to send the articles of impeachment to the U.S. Senate NEXT week.’  Most political observers are skeptical of this statement.  However, the dilapidated speaker says she will meet with her caucus in the House on Tuesday.  Does she possess the pair of humongous balls to move ahead?  We suspect she will because AOC is plotting behind her back.  Meanwhile, Tehran swears on a stack of holy Qurans that they did NOT shoot down the Ukrainian airliner.  Finally, Marianne Williamson becomes the 14th Democrat to abandon the 2020 race.  Oprah- WTF did you continue supporting someone you encouraged to enter the race.
  66. 2021 Sunday: The NFL’s Wildcard Weekend continues today with three more games in our expanded playoff format: (4) Baltimore Ravens, 20 (12-5) @ Tennessee Titans, 13 (11-6) (5) Chicago Bears, 9 (8-9) @ New Orleans Saints, 21 (13-4) and (6) Cleveland Browns, 48 (12-5) @ Pittsburgh Steelers, 37 (12-5).  Regarding the NFL, Pepsi says it’s going to concentrate on the upcoming Super Bowl LV half-time show and not so much on TV commercials. 
  67. 2021 Sunday A: In what many believe to be ‘too much, too late,’ the House Democrats have their articles of impeachment against President Donald J. Trump ready to go tomorrow.  Most believe their hope is to prevent the 45th president from seeking federal office ever again if they are able to squeeze a successful vote to impeach vote out of the U.S. Senate.  A growing number of Republicans are urging incoming ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden to order House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi to stop the proceedings as it will only rip the country further apart.  NO one expects that Biden will stop them, he wants to see his predecessor suffer.  Mitch McConnell, R-KY, says that the Senate won’t reconvene until January 19 so no impeachment proceedings can begin until Inauguration Day.  Meanwhile, the House of Representatives plans to increase travel security for its members following Senator Lindsey Graham being heckled at Reagan International Airport.  Elsewhere, D.C. Mayor says she is ‘concerned about securing ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden’s safety’ on Inauguration Day which tells us that the Democrats plan on another FALSE FLAG operation on January 20, 2021, in which white Antifa members will be dressed in Trump garb and will riot across the city.  How diabolical.
  68. 2021 Sunday B: In a move that surprised NO one, the Pentagon says it’s going to rename U.S. military bases named for Confederate States of America war heroes.  Wimps.   Meanwhile, the U.S. military is upping its preparations for Inauguration Day.  Regarding this matter and the storming of Capitol Hill this past Wednesday, former NYPD Police Commissioner Bill Bratton says he’s shocked at the lack of preparedness exhibited by the Capitol Hill police.  Perhaps he did not see the tape where cops behind the Capitol Building were waving the demonstrators into the facility?  Seems as though they had orders to allow the Antifa mob in.  Speaking of Antifa, Fox News’ Judge Jeannine Pirro says, “Republicans must stop blaming Antifa for Wednesday’s events.”  F— you, judge.  
  69. 2021 Sunday C: BIG TECH giants have coordinated their attack on FREE SPEECH alternative to Twitter, Parler, with most app stores and server sites announcing they are either out of their stores or will be closed and denied server service come midnight tonight.  Likewise, Brad Parscale- former Trump campaign manager- says he urged President Trump to go to Parler sooner because he anticipated that Facebook and Twitter would ban the 45th president’s social media accounts sooner than they did.  Speaking of BIG TECH, RINO Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, swears he’s going to do something about Section 230.  Sure, Lindsey, sure.  Regarding Section 230 which came up during the formation of the Defense bill, there is funding in that document for the creation of a new cyber czar to oversee America’s cyber defenses.
  70. 2021 Sunday D: Scientists report that the Earth is spinning faster on its axis than it has in decades.  Meanwhile, scientists also tell us that 2020 was a devastating year for costly climate events what with 22 events costing a billion dollars or more per each event.  Of course, this will lead the incoming 46th president to force the Green New Deal through both houses of Congress and into high-tax reality.  Not good for the American people.  Elsewhere, a tornado touches down in the central Texas town of Franklin which leaves hundreds of families displaced.
  71. 2021 Sunday E: Israel is deploying its anti-missile defenses pending threat of Iranian nuclear strikes.  The mullahs are always jabbering about nuking Israel, we should nuke them first.  Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo lifts self-imposed restrictions on visiting Taiwan.  This will allow the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations to visit the Republic of China which has Beijing upset.  Next, Indonesian divers pull wreckage and body parts from the Srivijaya Air Passenger jet that crashed earlier this week north of Jakarta.  Elsewhere, the Capitol Hill police officer whose head was stoved in by an Antifa thug wielding a fire extinguisher this past Wednesday- Officer Brian D. Sicknick- may lie in state in the Capitol Rotunda.  
  72. 2021 Sunday F: Crowdfunding site “GoFundMe” says, ‘it’s going to ban the raising of funds for those who challenged the 2020 Presidential Election.’  How nice.   Meanwhile, Bitcoin doubles in price to a new record in less than 30 days.  Love that cryptocurrency. 
  73. 2021 Sunday G: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 90,180,310 confirmed cases, +663,871, 1,932,948, confirmed deaths, +8,944, and 49,948,772 confirmed recoveries, +279,343.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 24,451,123 confirmed cases, up 119,755 from yesterday’s reporting, 376,521 confirmed deaths, UP 1,482, and 9,850,654 confirmed recoveries, UP 22,750.
  74. 2021 Sunday H: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 2,687,085 confirmed cases, 29,701 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 23,341 confirmed cases, 309 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 275,832 confirmed cases, 3,775 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Kansas: currently, they have 345,541 confirmed cases, 3,148 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 491,319 confirmed cases, 3,671 confirmed deaths, and 412,296 confirmed recoveries. 
  75. 2021 Sunday I: Senator Pat Toomey, RINO-PA, joins fellow RINO Senator from Alaska Lisa Murkowski to demand that President Trump step down from the presidency because of HIS CALLING HIS FOLLOWERS TO REVOLT which he did not do.  The impeachment articles being introduced tomorrow have 185 co-sponsors.  Currently, federal law enforcement is arresting numerous people who participated in the storming of the Capitol Building on Wednesday but NO mention of them being Antifa members (which we know they are).  Still, this is the direction in which, we are going- full left-wing lockdown thanks to the Dems and the RINOs doing what they are doing.
  76. 2021 Sunday I: Folks, we live in crazy times but there is ONE CONSTANT that does not change- the crookedness of money-grubbing Democrats and their RINO pals and buddies and the unseen hand behind the curtain- the Chi-Coms in Beijing.  We encourage everyone to stick around and discover whatever the truth may be today- you will be glad you did.
  77. 2022 Monday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  62. 2020 Wednesday: As RINO Republicans continue pushing President Donald J. Trump aside so they can return to ‘business as usual’ (the COVID-19 Relief/Stimulus Bill’s extraordinary price tag is a prime example), President Trump vows that Senator John Thune, part of GOP leadership in the upper house, will face a primary challenger.  He and his boss, Mitch McConnell deserve to lose their seats.  Regarding the $750 billion Defense Bill, the president suggests he is likely to veto that bi-partisan disaster, too- update, HE DID VETO IT because restrictions on Big Tech are not included.  Meanwhile, the president continues blasting the COVID-19 Relief/Stimulus bill criticizing HOW Americans are being shafted with measly $600 checks when ILLEGAL ALIENS are going to get $1,800 apiece as well as all the nations that will be receiving aid that should be going directly to the American people.

Trump on wanting more money for the American people.  House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi urges the 45th president to force the GOP to up the ante going to the American people as relief/stimulus to $2,000 per adult.  However, the decrepit, angry old bag won’t cut the pork so apparent in the bill out and throw it in the wastebasket. 
  64. 2020 Wednesday B: ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden shares an uplifting message with the nation, that ‘our darkest days lay ahead.’  They sure do, IF YOU are in the White House because you are in the pocket of Xi Jinping, you worthless POS.  NOT OUR PRESIDENT!  Speaking of ‘Beijing Biden,’ he says the ‘Russian hack is not under control and that President Donald J. Trump must do something about it NOW.’  Vladimir Putin says in reply, there will be ‘nothing good’ under a “Pro-China Joe” Biden administration (says one communist to another).   Elsewhere, New York City- under the control of stoned moron Mayor Bill Di Blasio- leads the nation in population loss as more people abandon the dying city for greener pastures in other parts of the country.
  65. 2020 Wednesday C: British Prime Minister Boris Johnson- BoJo to his friends and family- eyes greater lockdowns on the British people using the NEW STRAIN of the Chi-Com bat flu as his excuse.  Speaking of Great Britain, Brexit is not going well because the Xi Jinping Virus has slowed down talks between the UK and the EU.  Go figure.  Regarding the Wuhan Virus Crisis, Pfizer says it will supply the U.S. with another 100,000,000 doses of its Kung Flu vaccine by July 2021.  Next, Google says it warned scientists NOT to share information on race, gender, and facial analysis operations conducted at the corrupt search engine giant, one run by a Punjabi POS named Sundar Pichai.  The man and his family should face immediate deportation.
  66. 2020 Wednesday D: Georgia Republican Congressman Jody Hice, 10th congressional district, says that Senate Majority Leader (and noted RINO) Mitch McConnell, KY, must tell senators to get aboard with the upcoming challenges to the presidential election next month.  Flabby old Mitch- married to the daughter of a Chi-Com shipping tycoon does not seem to want to stand by his president but would rather move on.  Good for you, congressman.  Speaking of Georgia, Republican Governor Brian Kemp says a report will be forthcoming regarding the state’s signature audit results.  We shall see.   Elsewhere, the corrupt FBI says that Iran is the party responsible for encouraging violence against politicians who denied there was any election fraud.  Hmmm…someone wants to get nuked!
  67. 2020 Wednesday E: Last week, there were 803,000 new jobless claims.   Meanwhile, FHFA- the Federal Housing Finance Agency- housing prices went up by a whopping 10.2-percent compared to last year.  Speaking of which, housing prices rose 3.1-percent in the 3rd quarter, UP 7.8-percent over last year.  Meanwhile, a blast of unknown origin in a multi-story building in Baltimore, Maryland, injures 21 and collapses the roof.  Authorities are investigating…
  68. 2020 Wednesday F: The UN Human Rights Office blasts Trump for having pardoned four U.S. military contractors employed by Blackwater Worldwide doing time in a federal prison for having whacked numerous Iraqi ‘civilians’ in a free fire incident back in 2007 during the war in that s-hole country.  What happened in Baghdad’s Nisoor Square was an assault on a convoy which lead to the contractors fighting back.  Given sentences of 12 years to life, they should NEVER have been in prison in the first place, morons.  Get the U.S. out of the U.N.
  69. 2020 Wednesday G: It’s official: Andrew Yang is going to run against highly unpopular New York City Mayor Bill Di Blasio for his seat.  We think Yang might be the guy.  Although a liberal, he has common sense and business knowledge.  Everyone HATES Di Blasio, and we suspect he will be out on his butt cheeks.   Elsewhere, we are sad to say that we heard of the passing of Chef Brian’s second wife, Kay Langer Carrick.  She passed away last night.  Rest in peace, Kay, rest in peace.
  70. 2020 Wednesday H: Here are the latest stats for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, straight out of the fetid bowels of the world’s lone communist semi-superpower: 78,551,622 confirmed cases, UP by 749,901 cases, 1,727,556 confirmed deaths, UP by 14,447 deaths, and 44,225,515 confirmed recoveries, UP by 330,612 recoveries from yesterday’s figures.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 18,609,072 confirmed cases, UP by 211,892 new cases, 329,172 confirmed deaths, UP by 3,556 new deaths, and 8,225,571 confirmed recoveries, UP by 90,156 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt POSs).  Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 384,728 confirmed cases, 3,141 confirmed deaths, and 351,780 confirmed recoveries.
  71. 2020 Wednesday H: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 1,968,430 confirmed cases, 23,284 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 20,749 confirmed cases, 285 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION OF confirmed recoveries anymore- what is up with YOU, Gov. Ige, you Democrat hack.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 232,284 confirmed cases, 3,214 confirmed deaths, but like California, the gorilla-faced governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, Michigan, where that dingbat governor Gretchen Whitmer rules with an iron fist: 508,449 confirmed number of cases, 12,415 confirmed deaths, and sadly, no mention of the confirmed number of recoveries- thank you.   Speaking of the Yellow Fever 2020, the ignoramus homicidal governor of New York- Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo is whining and sniveling that his fellow Democrats in the nation’s capital are not sending him MORE COVID-19 Chi-Com Bat Flu Virus relief dollars he can stuff into his pockets.  As President Gerald R. Ford said to New York City in 1975 when they were begging for a federal government bailout to save them then, “DROP DEAD.”
  72. 2020 Wednesday I:  2020 Wednesday E: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,128.83, UP 114.32 points (+0.38%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,771.11, DOWN 36.80 points (-0.29%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,690.01, UP 2.75 points (+0.75%).  The price of GOLD is $1,877.30 per troy oz., -0.80 (-0.04%) while the price of SILVER is $25.78 per troy ounce, -0.146 (-0.56%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,019.50 per troy oz, +2.40 (+0.24%) while the price of COPPER is $3.55 per pound, -0.006 (-0.17%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,339.10 per troy oz, +16.00 (+0.69%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $47.95 per barrel, -0.17 (-0.35%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.54 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.04.
  73. 2020 Wednesday J: President Donald J. Trump continues with more pardons and sentence commutations today, 25 at last count.  Charles Kushner, son-in-law Jared Kushner’s father, friend Roger Stone, former campaign manager Paul Manafort, among others.  Leftist hack and serial abuser of those whom he is investigating- Andrew Weissman- the so-called ‘pit bull’ of Robert S. Mueller III is screeching like a banshee that President Trump is abusing the pardon system.  Wah, wah, wah.  Hopefully, we see you in an orange jumpsuit one day, Mr. Weissman, POS.
  74. 2020 Wednesday K: Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto #3519 with a $17 million jackpot at stake: 01, 12, 15, 23, 33, and 19.  Out 101,365 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers for a prize of $18,133 apiece.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #805 with a $321 million jackpot up for grabs: 06, 13, 38, 39, 53, and Power 06.  Out of 108,248 winning tickets, the highest winners were 54 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $539 apiece.

  76. 2021 Thursday: Please stick around to discover what the Chi-Coms and all their tools are up to today- you know they are up to something seeing as how they have their Democratic stooges in the U.S. to carry out their orders… meanwhile, we have Thursday Night Football this evening with a matchup of the rejuvenated San Francisco 49ers visiting the feisty Tennessee Titans.

The next album delivered by Fairport Convention was a ‘blast from the past,’ culled by an archivist: “From Cropredy to Portmeirion” (03-18-2002), an album of live music from 1990.  The band included virtuoso Maartin Allcock (guitars, mandolins, and the bouzouki), Ric Sanders (violins), Dave Pegg (acoustic and electric basses, and tenor mandola), Simon Nichol (guitars), and Dave Mattacks (keyboards, drums, and percussion).  It is amazing- and extremely enjoyable- to envision each of these performances with your mind and ears.  We love it, we know you will love it, too, and you can find it at almost every site specializing in classic rock/folk rock music such as Amazon, Discogs, AllMusic, eBay, you name it, it’s available.  We hope you do check it out as we believe you will love this band as much as we do.  Enjoy.

Wednesday, December 23, 2020, Today in History:

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

ENDNOTES:

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

[ii] We promoted the music of Hot Tuna beginning on Tuesday, 24-April-2012 through Thursday, 23-May-2012.

[iii] We promoted the music of Spooky Tooth, Mott the Hoople, and Widowmaker- among other interconnected bands beginning on Friday, 25-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We hope you will check out this collection of great rock music.  Even the worst albums among them beats the crap out of any bull crap music one hears today.

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

[v] We promoted the music of King Crimson, one of the greatest prog-rock bands of all time beginning on Monday, 20-October-2014 through Sunday, 21-December-2014.  We hope you will check them out as the remain active to this day.

[vi] We promoted the music of Genesis, as well as of the individual members, beginning on Tuesday, 02-April-2019 through Sunday, 15-September-2019.  We hope you will check them out and enjoy. 

[vii] We promoted the First Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award in 2018 and in 2019, we are working on the Second Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award.  Beria was a scumbag, a murderer, a rapist, someone who did the dirty work of his boss, Josef Stalin, and took extraordinary pride in doing much of it himself.  The award determines who most deserves similar treatment- kidding, folks, just kidding, as what Beria dished out in his heyday, lead to the back of the head in the bowels of the Lubyanka Prison.  This is a humorous award so please do not get your panties in a wad.

[viii] We look forward to promoting the music of the archetypal American rock band, the Beach Boys, sometime within the next five years or so.  Please keep posted for that day.  Thank you.

[ix] If we are still alive and doing the blog in 20 years or so, we hope to get to the infamous Pussy Riot.  You go, girls, you go, keep speaking out against the dictatorial scum trashing your country.

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

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

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

66. 2020 Tuesday J: Corrupt prosecutors of the Southern District of New York are trying to get ahold of Rudy Giuliani’s emails so they can pursue him and the president. They are seeking help from the Department of Justice so they can persecute- NOT prosecute- either President Trump OR the president’s attorney.

Trump signed the $1.5 trillion tax overhaul into law.
  54. 2018 Saturday: A government shutdown that went into effect the previous night continued into the weekend with lawmakers leaving for home for the Christmas holidays.  The shutdown came about because President Trump would not sign the budget if it did not include a measly $1.5 billion for him to continue work on the southern border wall.  Senate Minority Leader “Crying Chuck” Schumer told the president that he ‘will never get the money for his barrier so stop with the shutdown and put the government back to work.’  Finally, Indonesia’s Anak Krakatau volcano island erupted and collapsed, triggering a tsunami that killed more than 420 people and displaced 40,000.
  55. 2019 Sunday: The Pentagon released new emails regarding the President Donald J. Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.  Approximately 91 minutes after the phone call occurred, the White House Budget Office ordered the Pentagon to put a hold on military aid to the former Soviet republic.  Democrats are impeaching President Trump over this ‘phone call.’   Meanwhile, the White House is considering a plan in which, it will deport illegal aliens seeking to storm the border to Guatemala where they will wait asylum hearings.
  56. 2020 Tuesday: In a move that surprised everyone, California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom, aka Silver Spoon, aka Nancy Pelosi’s nephew, appoints California Secretary of State Alex Padilla to fill the seat of ‘Vice President-elect’ Kamala Harris who- if she assumes office- will step down from the seat.  Padilla will have to run in 2022 should he fill her seat.  He would become the first Latino senator from the Golden State.  Many suspected that Governor Newsom would appoint himself to fill the Harris seat because it is clear he is going to go down in next year’s recall election.  It would be the only way he would ever make it to a national office.
  57. 2020 Tuesday A: Jared Kushner joins a planeload of Israelis for the first flight from Israel to Morocco, the fourth nation to establish or resume normalized relations with the Jewish state.  Next, the hardcore left BLASTS House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi for caving on the COVID-19 Relief Bill.  She held this up from well before the 2020 Elections last month until now agreeing to the same things she agreed to two months ago.  However, Rush Limbaugh reports all manner of giveaways to foreign nations, checks to illegal aliens and their families that are retroactive to the last Chi-Vi relief bill.  Coupled with $600 checks for each American and each illegal alien in the country (remember: the true estimate is between 30-to-60 million illegals within the fabric of the country) the illegals will receive $600 plus $1,200 for a grand total of $1,800 per each illegal alien.  WTF?  Time for a second revolution!
  58. 2020 Tuesday B: Holy Roller Pat Robertson says, ‘Trump should move on, forget about 2024.’[xi]  Loser.  Next, Rudy Giuliani says the Pennsylvania lawsuit is the first of many to come regarding fraud and corruption in the 2020 Presidential Election- the one the Democrats are attempting to steal.   Economic adviser to President Donald J. Trump, Peter Navarro, says the ‘stolen election is an example of brass-knuckles politics.’  Noted conservative author and speaker Patrick Buchannan asks a pertinent question: “Can democracy hold a dysfunctional United States together?’  Good question for which, we don’t have the answer.
  59. 2020 Tuesday C: A Gallup poll shows that “Pro-China Joe” Biden has 65-percent transition approval among Democrats.   Speaking of Sinophile Joe, he is going to nominate the head of Connecticut’s educational system- Miguel Cardona, a hardcore left-wing, Democratic-Socialist loser- to become his secretary of the Department of Education.  What can go wrong with this?   Speaking of the Chi-Coms, the Chi-Com air force joined forces with the Russians to fly joint bomber patrols over the Pacific Ocean.  Some say they were ‘surprised’ by this event, but we were not surprised and expect to see more of our adversaries join together to demonstrate a unified show of force.   Also speaking of the Chi-Coms, Beijing emplaces new visa restrictions on U.S. citizens entering their authoritarian country in what is seen as a tit-for-tat move.
  60. 2020 Tuesday D: Former New Jersey Governor and failed presidential candidate Chris Christie says, ‘he is leaving the door open to a run in 2024.’  Who is going to vote for you, you traitorous, RINO scumbag?  Certainly, NO one here.  Meanwhile RINOS are expressing mixed feelings if President Trump revives “The Apprentice” should he leave office following the corrupt election.  None of their business.  Speaking of the president, he is considering two pardons for two former GOP congressmen now doing time in federal prisons: Duncan Hunter, Jr. of California, and Steve Stockman of Texas.   Hunter was sent to prison in December 2019 for missing campaign funds while Stockman was sent to prison in November 2018 on charges of money laundering, mail and wire fraud, income tax evasion, and conspiracy, all charges related to a non-profit organization he had set up.  Many believe he was set-up and railroaded by liberal prosecutors and judges.
  61. 2020 Tuesday E: As COVID-19 cases continue arising in California, the state is desperately searching for additional nurses and doctors to handle the crisis, one caused by Governor “The Smiler” Newsom.  We learn, too, that 2020 has become the DEADLIEST year in U.S. history what with 3 million deaths from the Chinese Virus, homicides, suicides, accidental drug overdoses, and far too many other diseases left untreated because everything was diverted into dealing with the effects of the Kung Flu.  
  62. 2020 Tuesday F: Here are today’s Comrade Xi Pangolin-Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 77,801,721 confirmed cases, UP by 613,375 cases, 1,713,109 confirmed deaths, UP by 13,824 deaths, and 43,894,903 confirmed recoveries (once again, down from one week ago- something funny going on here), UP by 372,661 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 18,362,068 confirmed cases, UP by 278,922 new cases, 324,441 confirmed deaths, UP by 2,923 new deaths, and 8,135,415 confirmed recoveries, UP by 135,302 new recoveries.
  63. 2020 Tuesday G: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 1,945,841 confirmed cases, 23,023 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 20,423 confirmed cases, 282 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 230,743 confirmed cases, 3,186 confirmed deaths, but like California, the apelike governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, Tennessee: 534,019 confirmed number of cases, 6,269  confirmed number of deaths, and sadly, NO MENTION of confirmed number of recoveries.  Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there.  Here they are: 387,482 confirmed cases, 3,136 confirmed deaths, and 351,186 confirmed recoveries.
  64. 2020 Tuesday H: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,015.51, DOWN 200.94 points (-0.67%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,807.92, UP 65.40 points (+0.51%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,687.26, DOWN 7.66 points (-0.21%).  The price of GOLD is $1,869.10 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%) while the price of SILVER is $25.64 per troy ounce, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,011.50 per troy oz, +2.10 (+0.21%) while the price of COPPER is $3.52 per pound, +0.0035 (+0.10%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,323.10 per troy oz., +6.70 (+0.29%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $46.79 per barrel, -0.23 (-0.49%).  Today, COCOA is $2,555.00 per metric ton, +20.00 (+0.79).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.54 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.82 euros.  in other economic news, the more we learn about the bogus COVID-19 chi-vi relief bill, the more we learn it’s full of all  manner of bulls**t and crap.  president Donald J. Trump, veto this flipping bill.  tell mitch McConnell, that brain-dead hag Nancy Pelosi, crybaby chuckie, and even Kevin McCarthy to go suck a big one! no!  no!  no!
  65. 2020 Tuesday I: What we heard earlier is true: President Donald J. Trump issued full pardons to former Congressmen Steve Stockman, Chris Collins, and Duncan Hunter Jr. as well as George Papadopoulos who was singled out for special mistreatment as the doorway with which to enter the Trump campaign.  The president also issued a pardon to Alex van der Zwaan as well as commutations or pardons to others mistreated by the DEEP STATE APPARATUSES.  Pardon any-and-everyone in need of a pardon who might need a pardon.  Elsewhere, after a two-year-stint on the 15-member U.N. Security Council, Germany is leaving and its U.N. Ambassador Christoph Heusgen, going to retire.  The ambassador fought to fight to get two detained Canadians freed from communist China’s cruel grasp had the Chi-Com deputy ambassador to the U.N. Geng Shuang tell him, “Good riddance.”  Time to start nuking some Chi-Coms…
  66. 2020 Tuesday J: Corrupt prosecutors of the Southern District of New York are trying to get ahold of Rudy Giuliani’s emails so they can pursue him and the president.   They are seeking help from the Department of Justice so they can persecute- NOT prosecute- either President Trump OR the president’s attorney.  Meanwhile, the FREE INDEPENDENT NATION OF TAIWAN reports its first Chi-Com Virus case in 250 days.   Speaking of the Beijing Bat Flu, Dr. Tony Fauci received his vaccine today, saying it’s ‘safe’ and that ‘everyone should do it.’  We’ll see.  Ilhan Omar is mad at fellow Squad member AOC for rushing out to get her vaccine.  Elsewhere, President Trump signed an executive order that would permit Special Counsel John Durham to present classified intelligence from the CIA to a grand jury when he prepares his case against those who set the bogus Russian collusion scam investigation into motion. 
  67. 2020 Tuesday K: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1618 with a jackpot of $330,000,000 up for grabs: 29, 53, 56, 59, 67, and Mega 21.  Out of 117,883 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $15,651 apiece.
  68. 2020 Tuesday: One year ago today, here is where we were: as always, we encourage everyone to stick around and discover whatever the Chi-Coms, the Russians, the Canadians, the Iranians, and other garbage around the world are doing with their Democrat stooges in the U.S.  It’s always fascinating…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by Fairport Convention commemorated the band’s 35 years of existence, 1967-2002.  Aptly titled, “XXXV,” the album hit record store shelves on February 12, 2002, and featured an augmented lineup beginning with the core five of Simon Nichol (guitars, vocals, dulcimers, and piano), Ric Sanders (fiddle), Dave Pegg (bass, mandolins, guitars, and vocals), Chris Leslie (violins, multiple stringed instruments, and vocals), and Gerry Conway (drums and percussion).  Joining them on this endeavor were Ian Anderson (flute), Mark Tucker (guitars), Chris White (vocals), and a full horn section.  All 14 tunes on this amazing album latch onto one’s ears and thus one’s inner mind.  We hope you will seek this one out, give it a good listen, and enjoy- you will be glad you did.

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 hope to do the music of Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, as well as Alpert’s solo career, somewhere around 2035.  We hope you will remain with us.

[ii] We began presenting the music of the Animals, of Eric Burdon and the Animals, of Eric Burdon, Eric Burdon and War, and War beginning on Monday, 08-June-2015 and the presentation ran through Sunday, 02-August-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider making them a part of your listening pleasure.

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

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

[v] We hope to promote the music of the Bee Gees within the next 3-4 years.

[vi] We promoted the music of the Small Faces, Faces, and a bunch more interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We encourage everyone to search out the music of the various bands in this collection so you can add them to your growing music collection.

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

[viii] Member of the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam.

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

[x] Speculation exists that Obama is gay because many of the people he put around him while in office were gays and some say during his university days he had a gay affair.  No one truly knows but he sure did a heck of a lot of stuff for the LGBTQIA+ movement.

[xi] We find it absolutely amazing to see who is a true man or woman of God and who is a hack, a religious-political hack.  Pat Robertson demonstrated today that he is a phony POS scumbag, someone who is a fair-weather friend and supporter.  Like Jimmy Swaggert and other phony Holy Rollers, this guy is a loser and should be kept at arm’s length by all future conservative politicians.

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

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!
