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.

  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.

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

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

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

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

  33. 1944 Sunday: Fighting in pockets around the Anzio beach head continues but not in the intensity it’s been over the past four days.  German troops are still trying to probe the Allied lines but are having no success.  The battle will stalemate for a while longer as Allied forces build up an amazing number for a breakout and the race for Rome.

  66. 2017 Tuesday: Along the coastline of Zawiya, Libya, the bodies of 87 African migrants wash ashore.  They were the lucky ones as ISIS was selling other Sub-Saharan Africans as slaves in various marketplaces.  Meanwhile, to the shock of Democrats and leftists, President Donald J. Trump authorizes the Department of Homeland Security to commence rounding up and deporting illegal aliens wherever they uncover them, rather like the Operation Wetback of the late 1940s and early to mid-1950s.   A government’s first obligation is to ITS people, not illegal aliens.
  67. 2018 Wednesday: Famed televangelist Billy Graham, a man who provided counseling and support to every president from Harry S. Truman to George W. Bush, passed away in his sleep at age 99.  Elsewhere, following the now infamous St. Valentine’s Day Massacre 2018 in Tallahassee, Florida, gun control advocates, parents, teachers, students, and everyone else is demanding something be done to stop this stuff.  The shooter should never have been in school, but Obama era policies prevented educators from booting sickos and the police from behaving proactively rather reactively.  It is a horrible thing.  Meanwhile, students across the country stage walkouts in protest of such gun violence.
  68. 2019 Thursday: Multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Peter Tork, member of the Monkees[ix], passed away at age 77 on this date.  Meanwhile, a federal judge rules against U.S. Secretary of Labor Alex Acosta, accusing of him of having ‘broken the law’ back in 2008 when serial sexual abuser Jeffrey Epstein- good friend of Bill and Hillary Clinton, among others- when Acosta was the prosecutor in a sex case in which the wealthy business mogul was involved.  They gave the guy a sweetheart plea deal apparently.  You convict on what you can convict.  Epstein has been accused of mistreating numerous girls.
  69. 2020 Friday: On Fox News Channel, Democratic candidate Tom “Green Jeans” Steyer swears on the Bill Hemmer program that he ‘will be on the upcoming Tuesday night debate stage.’  He also promises that he is the only one who can defeat President Trump in November which is delusional.  His fellow Democrats want him and his best bud, “Tiny Mikey” Bloomberg as much as they want anal herpes.  We expect him either to drop out soon or go third party and contest for the Green Party (or Peace and Freedom Party) nomination.  Meanwhile, the Democrats are claiming that ‘Russia is going to help Trump steal the 2020 Election.’  Here we go again.  Question for Democrats: IF you so fear foreign involvement in U.S. presidential elections then why the f**k are you not demanding for ALL illegal aliens to be rounded up and deported immediately?  Finally, it looks like the jurors in the Harvey Weinstein multiple rape trial are going to find the POS guilty.  Elections have consequences, folks.  Had Hillary Rodham Clinton won in 2016, Harvey would still be raping young starlets.
  70. 2021 Sunday: Day 33 of the usurper Joe Biden Regime- will it ever end?  First, ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden says he has ‘no plans to invite Russia to upcoming G 7 talks; we bet he would invite the Chi-Coms if the other world powers would allow him.  Next, Joe Biden is considering Rahm “Dead Fish” Emanuel, former mayor of Chicago to be his ambassador to Japan.  However, outrage over this pathetic POS is growing on both sides of the aisle.  Still, we bet he gets the job.  In other ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden news, noted author and China expert Gordon Chang says, ‘the Chi-Coms have no respect for their stooge in the White House.’  We agree. 
  71. 2021 Sunday A: In other Chi-Com news, former NSA official Matthew Pottinger says there’s ‘plenty of evidence linking the Xi Jinping Bat Flu to both the Chi-Com military and to lax standards in the Wuhan Institute of Virology,’ which in our eyes, created the perfect storm of events to get Trump out of the White House.  Finally, the ‘Biden White House’ is talking to the Iranians, seeking to get detained Americans returned home.  (Probably going to require $1.5 billion in cash on pallets in the middle of the night, there, Joe, just like what you and Barack Obama did).
  72. 2021 Sunday B: New Mexico Democrat Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham finds herself in trouble, accused of using more $13,000 of the taxpayers’ money to buy groceries, alcohol, and on dry-cleaning bills.  Remove her from office.    Elsewhere, former White House adviser under President Donald J. Trump and immigration czar in the Trump administration- Stephen Miller- says, ‘Joe Biden’s immigration policy is madness.’  Speaking of this madness, RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel says, ‘Joe Biden is responsible for creating the crisis along the southern border.’  As if that’s not bad enough, Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security is dumping 25 illegal aliens per day into the San Diego, California, area as well into southern Texas in what appears to be a targeted dumping of unwanted illegal aliens who should be thrown back as soon as they are caught crossing the border.  And you don’t think the REPLACEMENT THEORY does not exist, that it’s another so-called ‘conspiracy theory.’  Bull crap.  Everything the liberals are doing, and which people recognize they’re doing, the scream “CONSPIRACY THEORY!”
  73. 2021 Sunday C: It’s official- President Donald J. Trump will be speaking at CPAC in Florida next week, his first speaking engagement since having the 2020 Presidential Election stolen from him (that’s right, I said it!).  Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, R-GA, says, ‘there’s no denying that the GOP belongs to Donald J. Trump.’  Period.   Meanwhile, Representative Ashley Hinson, R-IA, pushes back on the dimwit Bill Gates suggestion that Americans learn to eat synthetic beef.  Good.  Because anyone talking about ‘synthetic beef’ may as well be talking about ‘Soylent Green.’  Look for the movie.   
  74. 2021 Sunday D: Elsewhere, Representative Michael McCaul, R-TX, thanks ‘AOC for crossing the aisle and urging help to the suffering citizens of Texas.’   Finally, Congressman Steve Scalise, R-LA, says that ‘$60 billion already exists with which to reopen the nation’s schools.’  Why won’t the Dems use it?   Add to that the fact that Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson said that ‘Joe Biden missed an opportunity to work with the GOP on the stimulus with which to help the American people, beset by the Chinese Virus.’ 
  75. 2021 Sunday E: In Kentucky,  a black police officer is fired for having handed over the personal information on his fellow non-black police officers to Black Lives Matter communists.  Elsewhere, Camden County, Missouri, becomes the first Second Amendment sanctuary county in the state.  We want to see this spread to every freedom-loving part of the country.  Next, a NASA supply vessel on the way to the International Space Station bears the name Katherine Johnson named for one of the iconic mathematicians depicted in the film “Hidden Figures.”  She was the main black female whose calculations were spot on and enabled the United States to win the space race and to put men on the moon and to return them to Earth. 
  76. 2021 Sunday F: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 111,277,677 confirmed cases, +373,840, 2,464,390, confirmed deaths, +8,321, and 62,783,718 confirmed recoveries, +272,053.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 28,325,091 confirmed cases, up 64,375 from yesterday’s reporting, 502,493 confirmed deaths, UP 1,660, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- same as reported for nearly three-plus weeks now.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile moron.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 172,892 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, YOU claimed you had a plan to defeat the communist virus, what the hell are YOU going to do about it- sit on your ass and blame everything on Donald Trump.  Shame on you, ‘Usurper Joe,’ shame on you.
  77. 2021 Sunday G: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,527,454 confirmed cases, 49,167 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,778 confirmed cases, 430 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 336,819 confirmed cases, 4,886 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Minnesota: currently, they have 479,104 confirmed cases, 6,500 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 750,043 confirmed cases, 5,577 confirmed deaths, and 693,730 confirmed recoveries. 
  78. 2021 Sunday H: The Boy Scouts of America welcome their first class of female Eagle Scouts.  Next, United to stop flights on some Boeing 777 planes.   Meanwhile, since we no longer watch Saturday Night Live, we learn today from news sources that the comedy show won’t portray either feeble old Joe Biden or his VP Kamala Harris.  That figures.  Elsewhere, a new poll shows that tourism and the hospitality industries are going to have a slow rebound, one not expected to occur until sometime in the end of Kamala Harris,’ uh, Joe Biden’s first term in 2024. 
  79. 2022 Monday: Please, stick around for any updates…

  49. 2008 Wednesday: Following Palestinian militants blowing up a portion of Israel’s wall along the Gaza Strip, tens of thousands flee into Egypt fearful of the retribution they are smart enough to know is coming their way.  (Note- why don’t peace-loving Palestinians overthrow these thugs who rob them blind and make their lives miserable).
  50. 2009 Friday: The 16th U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood assumed office on this date.  A Republican, he served under President Barack Hussein Obama from January 23, 2009, to July 02, 2013.  Elsewhere, Empire State Governor David Paterson, Democrat, local politician, Kirsten Gillibrand, to fill Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton’s seat in the U.S. Senate.  Senator Clinton left her seat to serve in the Obama administration as its secretary of state.

  55. 2013 Wednesday: Davos, Switzerland hosts its 2013 World Economic Forum.  Elsewhere, in Nigeria- the so-called ‘religion of peace’- Islam, in the form of Boko Haram, carries out some atrocities in the town of Maiduguri where adherents hack five people believed to be Christians to death with machetes.  Crucify these Islamists… Meanwhile, the U.S. military overturns its ban on women serving in combat.  That’s a win for women’s rights (yeah, right).
  56. 2014 Thursday: Celebrity and pop singer Justin Bieber[v] makes headlines when police arrest the punk for drunken driving, street racing, and resisting arrest.  Elsewhere, the murder of popular sex club owner and icon, Millie Marković, on the streets of Stockholm, Sweden sparks outrage and fear.  No one knows why the seller of sex in a country built upon the sex trade would become a murder victim.

  58. 2016 Saturday: Following an outbreak of zika virus in Brazil, the governments of Jamaica, El Salvador, Colombia, and Ecuador advise women to delay pregnancies for two years.  Meanwhile, the migrant crisis continues worsening in Europe.  At least 200 ‘migrants’ from the Middle East and Africa attempt to storm the Calais Chunnel area so they can cross into Britain.  The French are able to foil the attempt but it’s easy to understand WHY the British people want Brexit.  The Continent is out of control.  Elsewhere, New York former mayor and billionaire is considering launching an independent presidential bid for 2016.
  59. 2017 Monday: Tornados and thunderstorms across Mississippi and Georgia leave 18 people dead.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump signs two notable executive orders today: the first to pull the U.S. out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, aka the TPP, a crown jewel of the Obama administration and the second a reinstatement of the Mexico City Policy which prohibits the use of U.S. foreign aid to organizations that promote or conduct abortions.  Excellent.
  60. 2018 Tuesday: In Saudi Arabia in the King Abdulaziz Camel Beauty Contest, 12 camels undergo disqualification after their owners ‘confessed’ to having used Botox on the lips of their animals.  Did the owners lose their heads, too?  No one knows.  Meanwhile, the ‘religion of peace’- Islam- strikes yet again, this time in Benghazi, Libya, as a double car bomb goes off in a busy district blowing 33 people to meet Mohammad and wounds dozens and dozens of other unsuspecting souls.  Will they ever stop?  Elsewhere, the U.S. Senate confirms Jerome Powell to be the next chair of the Federal Reserve by a vote of 84-13.
  61. 2019 Wednesday: Citing the shutdown of the federal government, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi disinvites President Donald J. Trump from giving his SOTU address.  He did it about one month later after the government reopened for business.  Meanwhile, furloughed federal workers swamp the Senate building to protest the ongoing federal government shutdown.  Who let them in?  Where was security? 
  62. 2019 Wednesday A: Elsewhere, the criminal government of Venezuela accuses the Trump administration of ‘engineering a coup’ against the ‘kind, gentle, and loving’ administration of thug President Nicolas Maduro.  Simultaneously, opposition leader Juan Guaidó takes the oath of office as Venezuela’s next president because he did WIN the election until he ‘didn’t.’  The fact that the U.S., Canada, and other Western nations recognize him as the president doesn’t mean s**t as long as the Chi-Coms, the Russians, the Cubans, and the Iranians continue their support of the Maduro regime.
  63. 2020 Thursday: Fighting continues in Syria as rebels attempt to storm rebel positions in Idlib Province.  Russian and Syrian troops throw the rebels back, killing at least 50 Islamists dead and another 90 wounded while the Syrian government forces lost about half that number.   Meanwhile, in Wuhan, China, nearly 850 cases of the coronavirus with at least 25 fatalities are counted.  Singapore declares its first case of the COVID-19.  The virus is spreading.
  64. 2021 Saturday: As ‘President’ Joe Biden continues signing executive orders favorable to not only the American left but to the Chi-Coms, Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio decries the implementation of the far-left agenda and the loss of what will be more than 1 million jobs in the first week of the ‘Biden regime.’  You should have stood for President Trump, Little Marco, but you were missing in action.  You and your ‘hand size.’  Next, we learn that 150 National Guard troops in D.C. ‘to protect the illicit administration from the American people’ are COVID-19 positive.  Thank you, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi for sending them to sleep in a parking structure.  YOU MUST BE IMPEACHED.  Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader Charles “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says the impeachment trial for ‘ex-President’ Donald J. Trump will commence on February 8 even though Chief Justice John Roberts says he won’t preside over it (at least until Antifa mobs show up outside his home and ‘persuade him’ otherwise).
  65. 2021 Saturday A: The National Republican Congressional Committee has thrown the 10 House members who voted to impeach President Donald J. Trump to the wolves saying they will NOT intervene in Republican primaries in 2022.  Justice is heading your way, you worthless scumbags.  Meanwhile, for some inexplicable reason, ‘President’ Joe Biden trashes President Trump’s executive order slashing drug prices for the American people.  WTF did you do something like this you decrepit old POS.  What the hell is wrong with that?  Elsewhere, Doug Schoen, now with Newsmax TV, says, “More legislation and less executive orders,” ‘President’ Biden.   Finally, in Moscow, Russian police arrest 2,1000 people demanding the immediate release of Alexei Navalny, opposition leader towards thug Vladimir Putin.
  66. 2021 Saturday B: The ACLU is demanding that all states add an “X” to their official documents when it comes to listing one’s sex.  What a load of crap, there are TWO biological sexes, period.  For people that claim to listen to science it’s shocking that they pick and choose what ‘science’ with which to listen.  Stupid.  Elsewhere, the NFL- thumping its chest with pride- is going to give 7,500 Super Bowl LV tickets to vaccinated healthcare workers.  How noble of you.  Meanwhile, also in a moment of chest-thumping, Twitter says that following Inauguration violence across the country, it’s suspending the accounts of Antifa.  Wow.  Really big of you!  Finally, in South Dakota, unemployment has fallen to 3-percent or lower thanks to the state’s decision to keep everything up-and-running.  In places such as New York that closed everything down, the ignoramus Governor Andrew Cuomo is demanding ‘President’ Joe Biden give him $15 billion in bailout funds.  We hope YOU go down, you homicidal POS.
  67. 2021 Saturday C: COVID-19 Daily Update:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 98,288,147 confirmed cases, +541,350, 2,109,758, confirmed deaths, +12,495, and 54,255,414 confirmed recoveries, +358,448.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 25,109,272 confirmed cases, up 247,884 from yesterday’s reporting, 419,058 confirmed deaths, UP 5,799, and 10,974,161 confirmed recoveries, UP 128,723.  We learn that famed TV personality Larry King died at age 87 due to COVID-19.

  69. 2021 Saturday E: Stay tuned for tonight’s Super Lotto Draw #3528 with a jackpot of $14 million up for grabs and for the Powerball Drawing #814 with a $20 million pot on the line.  First up, we have the Super Lotto numbers- 15, 25, 37, 43, 45, and Mega 12.  Out of 143,211 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO MEGA for a prize of $24,588.  One winning ticket was sold at the Safeway in Newark, CA, 94560 while the other was sold at the 7/11 at Los Gatos, CA, 95030.  Here are the numbers for the Powerball- 05, 08, 17, 27, 28, and Powerball 14.  Powerball for a prize of $33,827 apiece.  Six of the winning tickets were sold in (1) San Francisco Mart I, San Francisco, CA 94116; (2) Shell, Baker, CA 92309; (3) ARCO AM/PM in Bellflower, CA, 90706; (4) Desert Smoke Shop, Desert Hot Springs, CA, 92240; (5) 7-11, San Diego, CA, 92123; (6) Zoo Liquor and Gas, Fresno, CA, 93728.
  70. 2021 Saturday F: Democrats are seeking to rein in expectations over their upcoming ‘immigration bill.’  What?  We thought the 30-50 million illegals infesting our country are getting immediate citizenship and everything that goes with it.  Meanwhile, Dems are also saying that making federal election standards a top priority- what, NO MAIL IN BALLOTS?  Speaking of Democrats, the Chi-Coms are singing a different tune now, claiming that ‘no one on their end was seeking meetings with ‘President’ Joe Biden or members of his administration.  Of course, they were and still are- everyone knows it.  They are Joe’s masters, so they want immediate payback for having put him in office (or so we allege). Elsewhere, Steve Forbes tells Newsmax that an ‘economic crisis’ is coming soon.  You had better believe it.  
  71. 2022 Sunday: Aloha.  Stick around…

The next live album released by British folk-rock veterans, Fairport Convention, “On the Ledge- 35th Anniversary Concert,” came out on October 31, 2007, and featured 2-discs of music culled from a couple of shows at one venue during the band’s annual winter tour of their native UK.  The lineup features the ongoing quintet of Ric Sanders (violins), Dave Pegg (acoustic and electric basses, and tenor mandola), Simon Nichol (guitars and vocals), Gerry Conway (drums), and Chris Leslie (mandolins, fiddles, cellos, and flutes).  As always, the performances are celebrated, and the selection of tunes has something for every fan of the band no matter how long they have been following them.   We hope you will expend a small bit of effort to seek this one out, give it a good listen, and then add it to your collection in the format, the condition, and the price that works best for you.  You will be glad you did.

ENDNOTES:

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

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

[iii] We will present the music of Chicago sometime in 2030 so we hope you will remain with us until then.

[iv] We hope to share the music of Lynyrd Skynyrd sometime in the next decade.  At least by 2029 so please stay tuned for further news.

[v] We will never stoop to promoting the music of this moron, Justin Bieber.  What a pathetic loser. 

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

IN ELEVEN MONTHS, WE COULD LOSE JOE.  WE MUST HELP HIM BY HELPING DEMOCRATS.  ALOHA.  SEE YOU IN SIX MONTHS, OR SO WE HOPE…

  18. 1944 Thursday: The Royal Air Force drops 2,300 tons of bombs on the Nazi capital of Berlin.  Elsewhere, on the Eastern Front, German positions around Leningrad are becoming untenable.  In some areas as they attempt to withdraw, Soviet gunners turn the artillery that had been bombarding the historic city for more than two years on them as they retreat.  To the south, the fight to reduce the Cherkassy pocket- dubbed by the Germans as the “Witches Cauldron”- continued, a battle that began on Christmas Eve and still was raging.  Ordered by Hitler to stand and fight, the Germans were trying to figure how to pull out of the ‘cauldron’ before they ended up like their comrades in Stalingrad did the previous year: annihilated.

Humphrey takes the oath of office as the 38th vice president of the United States. 
  30. 1965 Wednesday A: Meanwhile, rock-and-roll promoter Alan Freed, 43, died in Palm Springs, California.  Finally, the Byrds[vi] recorded the Bob Dylan[vii] song, “Mr. Tambourine Man” at Columbia Records in Hollywood, California.

  38. 1986 Monday: The United States observed the first federal holiday in honor of slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr.  Meanwhile, Britain and France announced their plans to build the Channel Tunnel, which now helps illegal immigrants from the Middle East and Africa cross over into Britain.   Elsewhere, in Marshall, Minnesota, heavyweight boxer Jimmy Young wins a unanimous, 10-round decision over his opponent, Rocky Sekorski.  Young’s pro record went to 31-16-2 while that of Sekorski went to 30-16-2.
  39. 1989 Friday: George Herbert Walker Bush underwent inauguration as the 41st president of the United States and Dan Quayle as the 44th vice president.

  45. 2001 Saturday: George Walker Bush became America’s 43rd president after one of the most turbulent elections in U.S. history.  His second-in-command, Vice President Richard “Dick” Cheney- a man who would propel the U.S. into two, extremely unnecessary wars, took his oath, too.  (Many believed that VP Cheney was calling the shots from behind the curtain).  
  46. 2003 Monday: Secretary of State Colin Powell, faced with stiff resistance and calls for caution, bluntly told the Security Council that the U.N. “must not shrink” from its responsibility to disarm Saddam Hussein’s Iraq.  Caricaturist Al Hirschfeld died in New York at age 99.  Pollster Burns W. “Bud” Roper died on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, at age 77.

  53. 2015 Tuesday: U.S. President Barack Obama gives his State of the Union address, promoting free community college education, increased capital gains taxes on the rich, more paid time off for employees, and greater tax credits for the middle class.  Elsewhere, as violence continues across Yemen, Houthi rebels storm the presidential palace in Sana’a.
  54. 2016 Wednesday: Both NASA and NOAA announce that 2015 WAS THE HOTTEST YEAR ON RECORD since records began being kept in 1890.  This, of course, becomes a common refrain year after year after year as the Climate Change alarmists continue screeching, “THE SKY IS FALLING, THE SKY IS FALLING,” yet, the sky NEVER FALLS.  Meanwhile, Caltech scientists release more ‘evidence’ that there could very well be a ‘Planet NINE’ on the outer edges of the Solar System, far beyond the Kuiper Belt. 
  55. 2017 Friday: Following the oath taken by Vice President-elect Mike Pence to become the nation’s 48th vice president, Donald Trump took the oath of office as the 45th president of the United States, pledging emphatically to empower America’s ‘forgotten men and women.’  Protesters registered their rage against the new president in a chaotic confrontation with police just blocks from the inaugural parade, screaming, crying, melting down, and some such as Madonna threatening to blow up the White House.  What a bunch of leftist trash.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Senate confirms the first two Cabinet picks of President Trump- James “Mad Dog” Mattis to become his secretary for defense and John Kelly to head Homeland Security, both of whom are former generals. 
  56. 2017 Friday A:  Across the world in Syria, ISIS destroys portions of the ancient Roman amphitheater in Palmyra by blowing it up with TNT.   Behead this murderous scum.  Elsewhere in Syria, either U.S. or Russian warplanes carry out an airstrike on ISIS positions west of Aleppo killing at least 40 or more thugs and wounding loads of others.
  57. 2018 Saturday: In St. Albans, Hertfordshire, bass player with the Zombies[xii], Argent, and the Kinks[xiii]– Jim Rodford- died in a fall at his home on this date; he was 76-years-old.  Meanwhile, a dispute in Congress over spending and immigration forced scores of federal government agencies and outposts to close their doors; federal officials turned tourists away from sites such as the Statue of Liberty and Philadelphia’s Independence Hall.  However, two days later, Congress voted to temporarily pay for resumed operations.  On the anniversary of President Donald J. Trump’s inauguration, left-wing demonstrators in cities across the country marched in support of female empowerment and denounced Trump’s (suspected but unproven) views on immigration, LGBT rights, and other issues.  Widespread belief is that POS such as Georgy Soros and Tom Steyer, among others, fund these crackpot demonstrations.
  58. 2019 Sunday: In the NFC Championship Game, the visiting Los Angeles Rams stun the home team favorite New Orleans Saints in OT by a final score of 26-23.   In the AFC Championship Game, the visiting New England Patriots beat the Kansas City Chiefs, also in OT, by a final score of 37-31.  Elsewhere, the march of peace continues.  Following suspension of diplomatic relations in 1972, Chadian President Idriss Deby and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu restore diplomatic relations in Chad’s capital of N’Djamena. Peace is awesome!
  59. 2020 Monday: Violence continues flaring across parts of the Middle East and Africa.  A female Boko Haram suicide bomber in the African nation of Chad kills at least nine civilians and wounds another 2-3 in a town.  In Yemen, the death toll from a recent U.S. drone strike on a mosque/military training center sees a death toll of at least 116 people, all said to be innocent civilians.  Elsewhere, violence continues flaring in Kashmir, India, as several militants and a police officer are slain in attacks.   Finally, as the COVID-19 epidemic gets underway, startled communist Chinese officials are trying to get to the bottom of the growing crisis in Wuhan, China.
  60. 2021 Wednesday:  NOT OUR PRESIDENT, folks: Joseph R. Biden Jr. took the oath of office today as the nation’s 46th president while his heir apparent Kamala Harris took the oath of office as the nation’s 49th vice president.  The oaths they swore are to uphold the U.S. Constitution and all the laws of the United States.  While preaching unity, they insult their political opponents every opportunity they get while GOP leadership in the House and Senate are already brown-nosing the duo.  Disgraceful.   Many Americans are renouncing their GOP membership beginning today including several chef-authors here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM.  We expect to see an avalanche of millions of similarly disgruntled Republicans following in our heels.
  61. 2021 Wednesday A: Senator Lindsey Graham, RINO-SC, a fair-weather Republican if ever one existed says that Mitch McConnell should ‘unequivocally oppose’ the second impeachment of Donald J. Trump, especially now that he’s out of office.  Elsewhere, Donald Trump flew out of Joint Base Andrews to his home in Florida earlier today.  Meanwhile, apparently some knucklehead phoned in a ‘bomb threat’ to the U.S. Supreme Court but all the radical, right-wing, QAnon violence the Democrats swore was going to explode all over the place has not happened.  We see it for what it is, folks, just another attempt at tarring and feathering all Trump supporters.  Finally, both drooling House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi and forever-angry Hillary Rodham Clinton are trying to revive the long-dead strawman of Trump-Russia Collusion when the two should be investigating Communist China-Democratic Party Collusion.
  62. 2021 Wednesday B: Outgoing President Trump issued 70 commutations and 73 pardons including one for Judge Jeannine Pirro’s ex-husband, Al.  Also, in his final hours, the outgoing president issued oil drilling leases in Alaska’s Wildlife Refuge.  Elsewhere, Ret. Gen. Lloyd Austin, ‘President Biden’s’ pick for Defense secretary says he is willing to lift the ban on transgenders serving in the U.S. military, one imposed by the previous administration because of the exorbitant costs transgender service personnel cost the American taxpayers.  Here we go.   A return to identity politics of all types- how soon before ‘furries’ and pedophiles and peeping toms and S & M’ers and multiple-partner marriages and everyone else with any kind of sexual proclivity gets special treatment from the ‘Biden administration?’
  63. 2021 Wednesday C: West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin says that launching infrastructure projects in all 50 states would get the American people back to work and back on their feet.  Sounds great, let’s see it happen.  Meanwhile, SpaceX bought two deep water offshore oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico to convert into space ports.  Elsewhere, Ford and Mazda are recalling 3 million cars due to airbag problems.  Speaking of automobiles, KIA shares are soaring over rumors of electric car production.  We shall see.  Overseas, like the Orwellian figures they are, the Chi-Coms trot out Jack Ma, his first public appearance in months, so the world can see they haven’t offed him yet.  Read “1984” and you will understand WHY this matters.  Finally, ‘President Joe Biden’ sends an immigration overhaul bill to the U.S. Congress that will legalize between 11 and 40 million illegal aliens within the fabric of the country as well as will draw millions more to swamp our constitutional republic.
  64. 2021 Wednesday D: ‘President’ Joe Biden signed 15 executive orders today.  First, he is initiating the return of the United States to the Paris Climate Accord.  Next, he revoked the permit for the Keystone XL Pipeline, much to the horror of our northern neighbor, Canada.  Then, he removed his predecessor’s travel ban on people coming in from mostly Muslim countries with a history of terrorism.  Following that, he signed one strengthening DACA protections for illegal aliens brought here as children.  Speaking of illegals, he is removing the ‘emergency funding’ that diverted U.S. DOD funds to continue building the southern border wall.  He also mandated that in all federal buildings and on all federal lands, masks must be worn at all times.   Another one would also count illegal aliens in the U.S. Census which will enable Democrats to win more House seats because of higher population counts. 
  65. 2021 Wednesday E: ‘President’ Joe Biden also cried out against ‘domestic terrorism,’ ‘white supremacy,’ and other evil things among opposition party members.  He also said he can ‘hear the planet crying out to him.’  What is it about the bogus Climate Change scam liberals continue pushing?  First, if we are to believe in science then everyone should understand that the Sun is the number one driver of ‘climate change’ on every planet in the Solar System blessed with a climate.  In addition to that, millions of bombs were exploded in the previous century, nuclear weapons tests conducted below ground, at ground level, under the ocean, and even in the atmosphere and still, the planet is not dead, nor will it die.  Yet, they continue pushing this bogus scheme because it is a way of fleecing those with money and then redistributing it to wherever they wish.  “Taxing the air” is what they call it…
  66. 2021 Wednesday F: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 96,640,644 confirmed cases, +581,653, 2,068,921, confirmed deaths, +15,537, and 53,267,010 confirmed recoveries, +372,842.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 24,433,486 confirmed cases, up 143,073 from yesterday’s reporting, 404,812 confirmed deaths, UP 1,749, and 10,562,082 confirmed recoveries, UP 51,007.
  67. 2021 Wednesday G: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,071,119 confirmed cases, 34,443 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases, 325 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 296,363 confirmed cases, 4,020 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Montana: currently, they have 90,255 confirmed cases, 1,094 confirmed deaths, and 84,255 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 575,842 confirmed cases, 4,181 confirmed deaths, and 478,897 confirmed recoveries.

  69. 2021 Wednesday I: Upon entering the Oval Office, almost immediately, ‘President’ Joe Biden deletes the 1776 Project page from the White House website.  Instead, he will promote the 1619 Project which vilifies the founding of the United States and its history.  It is important to note that today’s Inauguration Day events appeared more like a totalitarian state than they did an American event, the peaceful transfer of power.  Armed soldiers everywhere, hardly any civilians around, in a locked-down, fortified city being patrolled by armed members of the military.  It appears the nation has been overthrown from within.  Meanwhile, the Iranians are licking their chops that they are going to see the reentry of the United States into the flawed, pro-Iranian JCPOA deal.  This will occur almost immediately.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Richard Thompson’s next album was a blast from the pass- “In Concert 1975,” an album that hit record store shelves on August 13, 2007.  The album featured not only Richard on guitars and vocals but then-wife, Linda Thompson, on vocals, the amazing John Kirkpatrick on accordions and concertinas, Dave Pegg on the bass, and Dave Mattacks on the drums.  The band rocks through 15 of their wonderful songs, covering both hard rockers and sentimental songs of sadness and longing, and everything in between.  We do hope you will seek this one out and consider adding it to your ever-expanding collection of albums from ‘back in the day’ as compared to the crap one now must listen to on most radio stations like fish-lipped sluts with oversized butts, brain-dead rappers, and chicks with single names and little else to their credit, this is something that will raise your heart from the perverse gutter into which WOKE has shoved everyone’s ears.  Seek it out now and enjoy- you will be so glad you did, of that, we are certain.

Wednesday, January 20, 2021, Today in History:  

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

NOTE- THERE ARE SO MANY U.S. POLITICIANS WHO HAVE ENTERED OR EXITED OFFICE ON JANUARY 20, IT WOULD TAKE US MONTHS TO GET ALL OF THEM ENTERED SO PLEASE BEAR WITH US…


Thursday, January 20, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We hope to share the music of Poco, sometime in the next decade.  Please remain with us.

[ii] If we are still here in another 20 years or so, you might see the music of Judas Priest, Quiet Riot, Twisted Sister, Iron Maiden, and the rest of the bands from that era. 

[iii] We hope to present the music of KISS sometime in the late 2020s. 

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

[v] Many debate as to WHY Francisco Franco did this.  Many believe it was to curry favor with the Allies as the war went against the Axis while others believed he sought to right the wrongs of Spain’s past.  In the end, his government was able to rescue hundreds of thousands of Sephardi Jews from the gas chambers.

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

[vii] We look forward to doing the music of Bob Dylan sometime within the next 15-20 years.  Please, stick around for when we do.

[viii] Not sure when Guns ‘n’ Roses is coming but we hope we will still be alive and will get around to sharing them with the world.

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

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

[xi] 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.

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

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

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, WE HAVE TO HELP JOE; OTHERWISE, THE GOP IS GOING TO MOP THE FLOOR WITH THE BODIES OF DEMOCRATS…

59. 2021 Wednesday A: The wonderful government of Iran has passed a bill calling for the destruction of Israel by the year 2041 as well as for retribution for the POS Quds Force commander, Gen. Qassim Soleimani, whom the U.S. took out in a drone strike on New Year’s Day in 2020. What better reason to nuke these carpet-making camel jockeys NOW before President Trump leaves office?

  54. 2017 Friday: Turkish strongman Tayyip Recep Erdogan announces that Turkish forces will remain on the island of Cyprus for the rest of time.  They invaded the island during the 1970s and fought to displace the Greeks.  The island has been divided between the two countries ever since.  Speaking of thugs, for the first time the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons blasts Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and members of his regime for using chemical weapons on innocent civilians.
  55. 2018 Saturday: In the NFC Division Round, the Philadelphia Eagles defeat the Atlanta Falcons in a low-scoring affair by a score of 15-10.  In the AFC Division Round, the New England Patriots wipe out the Tennessee Titans with a final score of 35-14.  Meanwhile, thanks to Deep State resistance, a false alarm that warned of a ballistic missile headed for Hawaii sent the islands into a panic, with people abandoning cars on a highway and preparing to flee their homes; officials apologized and said the alert was sent when someone (obviously on purpose) hit the wrong button during a shift change.  So far, the feds have not identified the prick.
  56. 2019 Sunday: In the AFC Division Round, the New England Patriots pound the snot out the Los Angeles Chargers with a final score of 41-28.  In the NFC Division Round, the New Orleans Saints wallop the Philadelphia Eagles by a final score of 20-14, knocking Super Bowl LII champion Eagles out of the running.   Elsewhere, following insane elections in Venezuela in which, many people believe the President of the National Assembly Juan Guaidó won, Caracas police briefly detain him after he said he ‘was prepared to take power.’  This would create an international crisis.
  57. 2020 Monday: The people of Iran continue protesting their illegitimate government by calling for the ouster of the grand ayatollah, someone who should have been droned long ago.  Meanwhile, Sen. Cory “Creepy” Booker, D-NJ, becomes the fifteenth Democrat to leave the running for the 2020 Democratic nomination.  He does this because he has 0-percent support and cannot raise money.  Also, because the man is stranger than f**k and claims NOT to be gay.  Sure, Cory, sure.  Elsewhere, the U.S. expels 21 Royal Saudi Air Force pilots from the country following the shooting in Pensacola, Florida, which took the lives of American service personnel.  The Saudis were found to have jihadist sympathies.  Will we ever learn?
  58. 2021 Wednesday: Although many called for leniency, the feds executed Lisa Montgomery at its Terre Haute prison facility, the first woman executed in 67 years.  Next, the U.S. Supreme Court blocks mail delivery of the abortion drug during the Chi-Com-caused pandemic.  Meanwhile, Acting Attorney-General Rosen warns of violence both in Washington, D.C. on Inauguration Day as well as in all 50 states.  Finally, pot-smoking Mayor Bill Di Blasio of New York City says the city is ‘canceling $17 million in contracts with Donald J. Trump.’  Wow.
  59. 2021 Wednesday A: The wonderful government of Iran has passed a bill calling for the destruction of Israel by the year 2041 as well as for retribution for the POS Quds Force commander, Gen. Qassim Soleimani, whom the U.S. took out in a drone strike on New Year’s Day in 2020.  What better reason to nuke these carpet-making camel jockeys NOW before President Trump leaves office?  Moving on, we learn that ‘fewer than 10 scurrilous Republicans’ support the impeachment of President Donald J. Trump which is occurring now on Capitol Hill in the U.S. House of Representatives.  As the impeachment BS continues, Representative Matt Rosendale, R-Montana, says that Congresswoman Liz Cheney, R-WY, should be ‘stripped of her leadership role,’ something with which, we wholeheartedly agree.  Meanwhile, ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden announces he will select another Obama-Biden alum- Samantha Power- to head USAID.  Next, the U.S. Senate announces confirmation hearings for incoming Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen beginning on January 19, the same day the Democrats want to impeach President Trump a second time.
  60. 2021 Wednesday B: Christopher Ruddy of Newsmax TV says that ‘in a strange way President-elect Joe Biden is listening to his outgoing predecessor President Donald J. Trump in that he is nominating what the country perceives to be moderates to work in his administration and keeping the ultra-left riffraff at arm’s length.’  Interesting point.  Speaking of the 45th president, a recent McLaughlin poll says Trump’s approval ratings have been holding at 49-percent, his highest since the election.  Meanwhile, the U.S. special envoy to South Korea Henry Harris will be leaving his post next week.  Elsewhere, Newt Gingrich says there is ‘enormous danger’ in the ability to dictate whether President Donald J. Trump (or anyone else for that matter) can seek the presidency ever again.’  Nope, times are changing for the worst, folks.  Finally, ever-traitorous “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, the current Senate majority leader, signals he will go along with the second impeachment of President Trump.  What a guy.
  61. 2021 Wednesday C: President Donald J. Trump’s EPA through its push to impose industry-backed regulations is a tactic by which, it can tie the hands of incoming President-elect Joe Biden’s hands when it comes to forcing Green New Deal BS on the American people.  This will allow industry to have a greater say in proceeding with projects than the federal government, which is good, extremely good.  Meanwhile, YouTube has suspended President Donald Trump’s channel on their site.  Censorship run amok yet again, folks.  Elsewhere, at the request of President-elect Joe Biden, Operation Warp Speed’s Dr. Moncef Slaoui has submitted his resignation letter.      
  62. 2021 Wednesday D: Please stick around for tonight’s Super Lotto and Powerball drawings.  First, here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3525 with a jackpot of $11,000,000 up for grabs: 03, 17, 21, 27, 35, and Mega 05.  Out of 151,188 winning tickets, the highest winners were two people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $25,559 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at Riviera Foods in Kelseyville, CA 95451 and Shell in Irvine, CA 92606.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #811 with a jackpot of $550,000,000 at stake: 04, 19, 23, 25, 49, and Powerball 14.   Out of 424,484 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Powerball for a prize of $2,768,497 apiece.  One winning ticket was sold at a Chevron in San Diego, CA 92111 and Paul’s Market in San Jose, CA 95112.
  63. 2021 Wednesday E: President Donald J. Trump has been impeached a second time what with 219 Democrats and 10 Republicans voting for and 197 Republicans voting against (232 for, 197 against).  What a disgrace for our country, a politically-motivated impeachment designed to prevent Donald J. Trump from running ever again for the White House.   One thing we have learned is that there is NOT enough support among Republicans for impeachment so the Senate might waffle on forging ahead with a trial.  The negative repercussions could be tremendous for BOTH sides.  Time for President Trump to release ALL UFO files, all JFK assassination files, and all files on the corruption and crookedness of the entire Biden Family.  Do it NOW, Mr. President, do it NOW before our enemies take advantage of our insane politics and light us up.  
  64. 2021 Wednesday F: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 92,240,036 confirmed cases, +856,492, 1,975,707, confirmed deaths, +18,955, and 50,922,412 confirmed recoveries, +384,517.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 23,009,789 confirmed cases, up 212,059 from yesterday’s reporting, 383,290 confirmed deaths, UP 4,270, and 9,989,455 confirmed recoveries, UP 73,884.
  65. 2021 Wednesday G: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 2,815,933 confirmed cases, 31,105 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases, 312 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 283,363 confirmed cases, 3,869 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Nebraska: currently, they have 177,883 confirmed cases, 1,847 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 510,063 confirmed cases, 3,771 confirmed deaths, and 429,929 confirmed recoveries. 
  66. 2021 Wednesday H:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,060.47, DOWN 8.22 points (-0.026%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,128.95, UP 56.52 points (+0.43%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,809.84, UP 8.65 points (+0.23%).  The price of GOLD is $1,847.40 per troy oz., -7.50 (-0.40%) while the price of SILVER is $25.36 per troy ounce, -0.207 (-0.81%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,105.40 per troy oz, -5.30 (-0.48%) while the price of COPPER is $3.62 per pound, +0.003 (+0.08%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,397.10 per troy oz, +20.90 (+0.88%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.79 per barrel, -0.12 (-0.23%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.83.
  67. 2021 Wednesday I: In other economic news, consumer prices rose by 0.4-percent.  December saw the largest increase in four months.  The U.S. Department of Labor said that excluding core prices- energy costs and food prices- consumer prices rose by 0.1-percent and just 1.6-percent over the past 12 months.  Rising oil and gas prices as well as increases in the cost of food driving the increase.  Meanwhile, the U.S. bans cotton and tomato imports from Xinjiang Province in communist China amid concerns over the appalling human rights abuses and the rampant use of Uighur slave labor.  Human Rights Watch says that 2020 was the WORST year for human rights abuses in that repressive totalitarian country since 1989.  Everyone knows the Chi-Coms harvest organs from their prisoners and then sell them at astronomical prices around the globe.  Horrible. 
  68. 2021 Wednesday J: Elsewhere, the CEO of Parler says the social app may not return after being de-platformed by a cabal of BIG TECH social media and shadow authoritarians working from behind the scenes to squelch FREE SPEECH.  Finally, President Donald J. Trump gave a five-minute address from the Oval Office imploring Americans NOT to engage in violence even though rumors abound about what’s to come NEXT WEEK.  A poll conducted today says that a majority of Americans expect more violence to follow on the heels of the violence the nation witnessed last week.  Can anyone say, “CHI-COMS are behind this?” They are mad about criticism about Hong Kong as well as their use of slave labor, also U.S. reaching out to Taiwan, the REAL CHINA.
  69. 2021 Wednesday K: As everyone now knows, 10 Republicans voted against President Donald J. Trump on the impeachment charges of stirring up ‘an insurrection’ even though we know they know that was NOT the case.  Here are their names: (A) Rep. John Katko, NY (B) Liz Cheney, WY (C) Adam Kinzinger, IL (D) Fred Upton, MI (E) Jaime Herrera Beutler, WA (F) Peter Meijer, MI (G) Dan Newhouse, WA (H) Anthony Gonzalez, OH (I) Tom Rice, SC and (J) David Valadao, CA.  This last congressman is especially painful for those of us from California who contributed money to help Valadao take his seat back from carpetbagger T.J. Cox.  He then turns around and drives a shiv in the president.  I guess we will be coming for him in 2022.  Ingrate.  Meanwhile, Chef Vladimir in Washington state says both Newhouse and Beutler are proving to be disappointments.  Will someone please create a vaccine for RINO Republicanism?
  70. 2021 Wednesday L: Famed bassist Tim Bogert died in San Diego, California, at age 76 from the effects of cancer.  He played with Vanilla Fudge[vi], Beck, Bogert & Appice[vii], Cactus[viii], and Vanilla Fudge again until he retired from touring in 2010 due to a horrible motorcycle accident.
  71. 2022 Thursday: Friends, stick around and discover the news of the day along with all of us…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next release from guitar legend Richard Thompson was a five-CD box set: “RT- The Life and Times of Richard Thompson” (February 17, 2006).  This massive collection is broken into five separate portions featuring everything from classic cuts to amazing live renditions to album cuts upon which, he played as a guest or contributed to as a session musician.  One finds a nearly 170-page booklet that goes into great detail about the life and times of this phenomenal artist and priced at less than one hundred bucks, what the heck can you lose?  If you have yet to introduce the music of this lesser-known guitar virtuosos, well this is a glorious (and economical) way in which one can do it.  We hope you rush out to your nearest seller of classic rock music and add it to your collection.  You will be extremely glad you did, that we guarantee.

Wednesday, January 13, 2021, Today in History:  

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

ENDNOTES:

[i] Within the next two decades, we hope to present the music of Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band.

[ii] We are unclear as to when we will celebrate the music of this long-lived group but when we do, you will be the first to know.

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 have no idea when we will begin promoting the music of this fabled country artist but you can be sure we will promote Johnny Cash at some point during the next two decades.

[v] 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, “The Yellow Submarine” appeared on Sunday, 27-November-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

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

[vii] We promoted the music of this venerable British rock band as part of a series of interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This included the Small Faces, Faces, Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood, Jeff Beck, Steve Marriott, Humble Pie, and other interconnected parts.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[viii] We fucked up when we failed to celebrate the music of the hard-rocking band, Cactus, at the same time we shared the music of Vanilla Fudge with you.  We hope to rectify that mistake sometime in the next 15 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!

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

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

  60. 2019 Saturday: In the AFC Division Game, the Kansas City Chiefs blow out the Indianapolis Colts 31-13 to move to the AFC Championship Game while in the NFC Division Game, the Los Angeles Rams hold off the Dallas Cowboys 30-22.  Elsewhere, the federal government shutdown enters its 22nd day, becoming the longest shutdown of the government in U.S. history.  Of course, President Donald J. Trump is the villain and never House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi or Senate Minority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer who are unwilling to provide funding for the border wall.
  61. 2020 Sunday: In the AFC Division Game, the Kansas City Chiefs blow out the Houston Texans 51-31 after being down 24-0 to move to the AFC Championship Game while in the NFC Division Game, the Green Bay Packers hold off Seattle Seahawks 28-23.  Elsewhere, Nancy Pelosi swears that next week, she is going to send the articles of impeachment to the U.S. Senate.  Meanwhile, the people of Iran take to the streets protesting their government’s shootdown of the Ukrainian airliner.   Finally, a gunman in Aurora, Colorado, storms a private party and shoots five people before escaping into the night.  Police are searching for the shooter.  The five victims are expected to survive.
  62. 2021 Tuesday: President Donald J. Trump and Vice President Mike Pence announce that Trump will not be removed via the 25th Amendment or that he will resign from office before the end of his term.  Next, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy informs GOP House members that President Trump admitted ‘some responsibility’ for the Capitol Hill riots of a week ago tomorrow.  Elsewhere, discredited, and disgraced former FBI Director James Comey- fired by President Trump early in 2017 for being a corrupt POS- says, “Trump should be impeached but keep the TV cameras off him.”  Thank you for your opinion you scumbag.
  63. 2021 Tuesday A: Noted GOP megadonor and Las Vegas casino mogul Sheldon Adelson is dead at age 87.  Elsewhere, we learned today that bloviating reporter Jim Acosta of CNN is leaving the White House press corps for another gig somewhere else like maybe his own show?  That one won’t last long.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Treasury and State impose counterterrorism sanctions on FIVE individuals linked to the illegitimate Iranian government. 
  64. 2021 Tuesday C: The Trump administration is urging various states to expand access to COVID-19 vaccines which some states such as the Empire State- seem to be abusing.  A recent Axios/Ipsos poll says, ‘most Americans eager to get the coronavirus vaccine.’  Next, the Golden State says it’s planning to use sports stadiums as mass vaccination sites.  Meanwhile, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem says she will sign a bill banning abortions for Downs syndrome babies.  Elsewhere, Michigan says it’s going to charge former GOP Governor Rick Snyder with the Flint, Michigan, water crisis.
  65. 2021 Tuesday D: President Trump was in Alamo, Texas, today celebrating 452 miles of border wall construction with another 300-plus under construction.  He cited statistics of all the illegals stopped from sneaking into the U.S., the numbers of gangbanging thugs captured and deported, and the massive quantities of narcotics stopped from flooding into our country.  A report says, ‘border wall construction is making it easier for illegal aliens to slip into the U.S.’  Uh, okay, should we stop building the wall?  That would make it even easier for illegals to enter the country, right?  How stupid.   Meanwhile, the Trump administration also is trying to firm up the rules for asylum and refugee status before leaving office next week.
  66. 2021 Tuesday E: ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe” Biden’s pick to head the OMB- Neera Tanden- reaped more than $700,000 working for a nonprofit.  Looks like Old Joe is going with financial fraudsters like him and his family.  Uh-oh.  Elsewhere, Congressman Michael Waltz, R-FL, says that ‘Joe Biden must speak out against impeachment’ because it is a divisive issue.  Hot upon its heels, a McLaughlin poll says, ‘most Americans are opposed to another impeachment of the 45th president, especially when he will be leaving office in EIGHT days.  Meanwhile, Jared Kushner is briefing ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden’s incoming National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan.  Finally, President Trump recognizes that talk of impeachment is dividing the country and once again urges PEACE for his followers while also saying that BIG TECH is dividing the United States.’
  67. 2021 Tuesday F: Regarding the aftermath of the Capitol Hill Antifa-led riots last week, AT&T becomes yet another big corporation halting donations to ALL GOP congressmen-and-women who voted against the certification of the 2020 Presidential Election.  Next, the CEO of Parler- John Matze- says he’s getting numerous death threats over his stand for First Amendment rights.   Meanwhile, after calling for ALL GOP members to be placed onto the NO-FLY list, House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie G. Thompson, D-Mississippi, continues demanding for GOP Senators Josh Hawley, Missouri, and Ted Cruz, Texas, to be put on the NO-FLY list.  WTF, Congressman Thompson?  Elsewhere, Rep. Pat Fallon, R-TX, says that what is going on is ‘liberals gone wild.’ 
  68. 2021 Tuesday G: Derek Chauvin- the officer who kept his knee on the neck of George Floyd- will be tried separately from his three fellow Minneapolis Police Department officers.  Next, the FBI says it is investigating more than 170 separate cases related to last week’s Antifa-sponsored riots on Capitol Hill.  At the same time, we learn that a new plot to surround the Capitol has been foiled.   As if this isn’t bad enough, we receive warnings from the FBI of ‘armed protests in all 50 states are coming’ which sounds frightening, but we remember back in 2016 post the election and into 2017, there were anti-Trump protests from one end of the country to the other and we do not recall the FBI being terrified back then.  All we want is a little consistency!  Elsewhere, a federal judge halts the execution of the only woman on federal death row.  If Lisa Montgomery does undergo execution, she would become the first female in 67 years to undergo execution at the federal site in Terre Haute, Indiana.
  69. 2021 Tuesday H: The NHL says in playing for its fans, it’s going to lose billions of dollars unless things open up and soon.  Elsewhere, the Catholic League blasts the American Civil Liberties Union’s attacks on President Donald J. Trump’s First Amendment rights to free speech.  Meanwhile, CIA documents on UFOs have been compiled by a researcher and are awaiting release.  Finally, the Democrats are now looking into the 14th Amendment to find some way with which, they can drive President Trump from office before he’s scheduled to leave office a week from tomorrow.  What a bunch of maggots.
  70. 2021 Tuesday I: The U.S. Department of Justice is probing ‘sedition conspiracies’  (they’re acting like this is somehow resembling the Civil War) surrounding the Capitol Hill 2021 storming last Wednesday, saying that somehow it is something we have never seen before.  Folks, we were alive, well, and observant in the 1960s and the 1970s (and way before) and we remember the antiwar protests of those two decades.  We also remember Puerto Rican communists attacking the Capitol, it’s as though modern historians overlook the past, especially when LEFTISTS were the ones blowing things up, murdering police officers, threatening judges, and even members of Congress.  They must wake up and stop with the flipping propaganda already.  Enough is enough.  Meanwhile, Apple CEO Tim Cook calls ‘for accountability’ for the Capitol Hill, Antifa-led riots of last week.  Sadly, Walmart announces it’s going to HALT donations to Republicans who stood against the certification of ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden.  Wow.
  71. 2021 Tuesday J: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 91,383,544 confirmed cases, +658,733, 1,956,752, confirmed deaths, +15,609, and 50,537,895 confirmed recoveries, +370,814.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 22,797,730 confirmed cases, up 89,725 from yesterday’s reporting, 379,020 confirmed deaths, UP 450, and 9,915,571 confirmed recoveries, UP 14,936.

  73. 2021 Tuesday L:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,068.69, UP 60.00 points (+0.19%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,072.43, UP 36.00 points (+0.28%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,801.19, UP 1.58 points (+0.42%).  The price of GOLD is $1,855.80 per troy oz., +11.60 (+0.63%) while the price of SILVER is $25.66 per troy ounce, +0.225 (+0.88%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,078.70 per troy oz, +10.90 (+1.02%) while the price of COPPER is $3.64 per pound, +0.03 (+0.83%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,376.20 per troy oz, -2.60 (-0.11%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $53.33 per barrel, +0.12 (+0.23%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.78.
  74. 2021 Tuesday M: Humorous note for the day:  as Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer was crossing the street, hecklers barraged him with invective, calling him “Adolf Hitler.”  Now that’s funnier than s**t.  Meanwhile, U.S. Chamber of Commerce President Thomas Donahue lashes out at President Trump like other losers by trying to say that the president’s words last Wednesday are what set in motion an event- the Capitol Hill riots- that was prearranged to coincide with Antifa members storming the building.  We now know that several Capitol Hill police officers are facing questions as to WHY they pulled barricades aside and waved the angry left-wing mob into the building.  Elsewhere, the manager for actor Chuck Norris says, ‘his client was not present at Capitol Hill last week.’  Finally, a ‘civil rights group’ demands Google remove Donald Trump’s YouTube channel.  Wow.
  75. 2021 Tuesday N: The 18.1st Acting U.S. Transportation Secretary Steven G. Bradbury assumed his position on this date what with the resignation of the 18th U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao.  A Republican, Bradbury served under Presidents Donald J.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

  56. 2010 Monday: Reinforced by the discovery of new tombs by the Great Pyramids in Giza, Egypt, reinforces the theory that free workers and not slaves built the pyramids.  Elsewhere, North Korea floats a peace treaty with South Korea in an effort to end the undeclared war that first erupted in 1950.
  57. 2011 Tuesday: New protests break out in Tunis, the capital of Tunisia, over no jobs, high unemployment.  This unrest leads to the deaths of at least 53 people and countless injuries to numerous others.  This is not good.  Meanwhile, like all authoritarian regimes, Iranian state TV broadcasts the traumatic ‘confession’ of Majid Jamali-Fash, the man the Iranian regime conspired with Israeli Mossad agents to carry out the targeted hit on a peace-loving University of Tehran physics professor, Masoud Alimohammadi. 
  58. 2012 Wednesday: According to Israel’s military establishment, the country is preparing for an increase of Syrian refugees into the Golan Heights.  Elsewhere, following the blowing up of an Iranian nuclear scientist, the U.S. waves off Iranian charges of complicity.  Meanwhile, POS murdering thug Joran van der Sloot pleads guilty to the murder of a Peruvian woman of high rank within that country- her father is in government.  The Aruban scumbag got away with the murder of Natalie Holloway, but he was unable to escape these charges.
  59. 2013 Friday: In Sri Lanka, the parliament passes a motion to impeach the chief justice on the nation’s Supreme Court, Shirani Bandaranayke.  Elsewhere, the government of Central African Republic strikes a ceasefire with Islamist rebels who have been running amok following a month of negotiations.  This would lead to a new coalition government.
  60. 2014 Saturday: Charles Bolden, NASA’s administrator, and John Holdren, President Obama’s science advisor, announce the extension to 2024 of the International Space Station, as the White House wanted.   Meanwhile, as Fleetwood Mac[x] performs a concert on Maui, drummer/percussionist Mick Fleetwood announces that keyboardist/vocalist Christine McVie will be rejoining the band.  Elsewhere, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder says, ‘the feds will recognize homosexual marriages conducted in Utah even as Utah won’t.’ 
  61. 2015 Sunday: Over 3.5 million people in Paris and across France stage unity rallies to protest the recent Islamist terrorist attack on the offices of French satire magazine, Charlie Hebdo; the rallies carry the theme ‘Je Suis Charlie’ (I am Charlie).   Elsewhere, in Africa, Boko Haram carries out suicide bombings in a local market in the northeastern part of Nigeria by using two 10-year-old girls as their weapons of choice.  We need to capture this scum and crucify them head down.
  62. 2016 Monday: At the University of Phoenix Stadium, #2 Alabama beats #1 Clemson 45-40 to win the College Football National Championship.  What an exciting game.  Elsewhere, in Baghdad, Iraq, jihadists affiliated with ISIS carry out a bombing attack on a marketplace which blows up at least 51 people and wounding numerous others.  The site ISIS assaulted was reported to be an ‘illegal casino,’ something the goody-two-shoes Islamists cannot tolerate- people having fun.  Meanwhile, protesters in Germany take to the streets to protest the thousands of sexual assaults that Muslim refugees allowed into the country by Chancellor Angela Merkel committed on New Year’s Eve, especially in Leipzig and Cologne.
  63. 2017 Wednesday: Following Chi-Com naval exercises in the South China Sea, the Taiwanese navy and air force scrambles to counter the PRC naval flotilla led by the aircraft carrier Liaoning sails through the Taiwan Straits on the way to its home port.  Elsewhere, President-elect Donald J. Trump holds his first post-election press conference in New York City.
  64. 2018 Thursday: Walmart announces that it’s going to increase its entry level wage to $11 an hour but will also close 50 Sam’s Club stores.  Elsewhere, in Santa Barbara County, California, the county sheriff says that ‘at least 43 people are still missing following Tuesday’s humongous mudslides in Montecito.  Heavy rains has weakened soil on fire-ravaged mountains which sent the sticky flows rushing down mountainsides and into homes.  Meanwhile, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange- who has been hiding out at the Ecuadoran Embassy in London since August 2012- has been granted Ecuadoran citizenship. 
  65. 2019 Friday: ISIS carries out a car bombing at a public marketplace in the town of Al-Qaim which kills two people outright and wounds another 25 or so.  The so-called ‘religion of peace’ strikes again.  Elsewhere, federal government employees miss their first paycheck due to the ongoing federal government shutdown.  At least 800,000 nonessential workers will go without their pay (although as soon as government reopens, the checks- with interest- flow into their bank accounts).
  66. 2020 Saturday: In the AFC Division Game, the Tennessee Titans blow out the Baltimore Ravens 28-12 to move to the AFC Championship Game while in the NFC Division Game, the San Francisco 49ers whoop the Minnesota Vikings 27-10.  Elsewhere, former New York City Michael Bloomberg says he’s ‘open to spending $1 billion to defeat President Donald J. Trump.’  What a guy.   Meanwhile, the Iranians admit they screwed up when they shot down a Ukrainian airliner flying out of Tehran on January 8 when they began launching missiles at U.S. bases in neighboring Iraq.  They fired antiaircraft artillery at the plane they thought was American or American cruise missiles coming in, killing all 176 people aboard the doomed craft. 
  67. 2021 Monday: A New York state attorneys group is moving to disbar “America’s Mayor” and President Donald J. Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, for his part in the ‘Storming the Capitol Building 2021” so-called ‘insurrection.’  Next, the U.S. Supreme Court nixes a ‘fast-track’ for all of President Trump’s election fraud cases.  Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi continues urging Vice President Mike Pence to utilize the 25th Amendment so he and the Cabinet can remove a ‘extremely dangerous president from office before he can cause further harm to the country.’  Not going to happen, “Mumbles,” not going to happen. Speaking of the senile House speaker, she has ONE ARTICLE of impeachment against the 45th president ready to go which Talk Radio GIANT Rush Limbaugh presumes to be the opening round in negotiations to get Trump out of office in exchange for no prosecutions against him or members of his family for all time provided he never runs again.  This could be true, but we doubt President Trump will give in to his worst political enemy.
  68. 2021 Monday A: The jabbering mullahs in Tehran warn the world they have all sorts of missile bases along their coastline with all manner of weapons heretofore unseen in the history of the world, weapons that can defy the weapons of every other nation.  Bulls**t.  They use a lot of Styrofoam and paint to create the ‘illusion’ they have the best weapons in the world.  We say, “NUKE THEM.  NOW!”  Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms deny forcible abortions and sterilizations of minority women in their country.  We here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM say they are following ‘more the Nazi-Fascist model’ than they are the one espoused by founder Mao Zedong and his brand of Marxism- Maoism.  Meanwhile, Beijing threatens a ‘counterstrike’ on the U.S. for defying their ‘blockade’ of Taiwan over the U.S. lifting restrictions on U.S.-Taiwan, aka Republic of China (the REAL China), relations.  Finally, the U.S. designates Cuba a state sponsor of terrorism and the Houthi rebels in Yemen as a TERRORIST GROUP.
  69. 2021 Monday B: In other foreign news, the Chi-Coms propaganda ministry slams President Donald J. Trump and the New York Stock Exchange over their delisting and holding accountable numerous Chi-Com firms in league with the Chi-Com military.  The Beijing mouthpieces claim that in doing so, the U.S. is ‘actually hurting itself through delisting these companies.’  Give us a break.  Wah, wah, wah.  Meanwhile, the outgoing U.S. Trade Adviser Robert Lighthizer urges the incoming ‘Pro-China Joe” Biden administration to maintain the tariffs on the Chi-Coms.  Sadly, we know “Pro-China Joe” will rip them off the moment he assumes office.
  70. 2021 Monday C: ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden names ex-diplomat and former U.S. ambassador to Russia William Burns to head the Central Intelligence Agency.   Next, we learn that the theme of ‘Pro-China Joe’s’ Inauguration Day will be “AMERICA UNITED,” even as he won’t discourage House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi from impeaching President Trump again.  Speaking of Trump and things associated with Trump, the U.S. Army is investigating an officer who led a group to Washington, D.C., to protest the stolen election.  The officer being investigated is Captain Emily Rainey, a psy-ops warfare specialist stationed at Ft. Bragg.  Next, the PGA is canceling a contract between President Trump’s Bedminster Course and the organization, one that would have seen the 2022 PGA Championship played there.  Wow.
  71. 2021 Monday D: The U.S. Supreme Court rebuffed a bid to establish universal mail-in voting across the Lone Star State.  Next, following its ban on President Donald J. Trump and its participation in the war against Parler, Twitter’s shares drop by an astounding 7-percent.  Not good for them.  Even more interesting, noted Trump critic, German Chancellor Angela Merkel says that ‘President Trump’s eviction from Twitter is problematic.’  It’s okay for the Iranians to talk about killing everyone but President Trump sharing his mind is EVIL and must be stopped.  What a load of crap.  Good for you, Herr Chancellor.  Speaking of Twitter, after their San Francisco headquarters calls cops because there are a few people outside the facility protesting their actions against Trump, Jack Dorsey calls for police protection.  
  72. 2021 Monday E: Elsewhere in the world, the Saudi Crown Prince Mohamed Bin Salman is planning a city that won’t have automobiles for the ‘future beyond oil.’   Meanwhile, the most unpopular pontiff in modern times- Pope Francis- issues a decree permitting women greater roles in the church but still won’t permit priests to marry.  What a guy.  Elsewhere, the world’s biggest companies announce they will suspend donations to ALL U.S. lawmakers who voted AGAINST the certification of ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden and ‘Kooky Kamala’ Harris.  My, my, my- the cancel culture strikes again.   Finally, GOP Congressman Vernon Jones of Georgia warns ‘Pro-China Joe’ that impeaching Trump again is not going to heal the country.’
  73. 2021 Monday F: President Donald J. Trump will be in Texas today celebrating the construction of 400 miles of border security fencing and walls along the border with Mexico.  Meanwhile, the first lady of the United States Melania Trump roundly condemns the Capitol Hill violence that occurred this past Wednesday.   Elsewhere, as alarms continue being raised at the omnipotent power of an ever-growing BIG TECH, Parler says it’s going to sue Amazon.com for violations of U.S. antitrust laws.   Finally, the Capitol Hill Police Department names a new acting chief of police- Deputy Chief Yogananda Pittman.  Regarding the Capitol Hill cops failure to quell the riots of Wednesday, January 06, 2021, outgoing chief and fall guy for the debacle Chief Steven Sund says he sought help from local and federal law enforcement SIX times which should tell everyone the entire event was orchestrated and coordinated by the left. Finally, famed NFL football coach Bill Belichick is going to receive the Medal of Freedom, the highest award for a civilian[xi].
  74. 2021 Monday G:  One year on from the first death of the infamous Chi-Vi, the People’s Republic of (Communist) China still won’t provide answers to the world.  Meanwhile, questions continue swirling around Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo as to WHY tens of thousands of precious COVID-19 vaccines- vaccines this POS begged for- are ending up in the garbage dumpsters across the state, unused, out-of-date, and spoiled.  Boy, would we love to see this POS wearing an orange jumpsuit doing time in a federal supermax penitentiary.   Still, we hear that Governor Cuomo and his dingbat buddy, Mayor Bill Di Blasio are down on their decrepit knees praying to their god, Karl Marx, that ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden will bail them out once he occupies the White House.  Let them suffer.  Elsewhere, Texas state officials are considering a secession movement.
  75. 2021 Monday H: B-I-G changes occurring at the Fox News Channel what with a reordering or demotion of long-time hosts with Martha MacCallum becoming the first casualty, demoted to daytime TV.  They are doing this because Newsmax is cleaning their clocks.  We know that everyone we know who watched FNC has abandoned the network and gone to Newsmax and OAN.  It’s NOT your hosts, Fox, it’s YOU, ordering your highly paid hosts no longer to talk about Donald Trump or the 2020 Presidential Election honestly.  Combined with far too many liberals across your network, you made your bed now sleep in it.   Elsewhere, Colin Powell says he’s ‘no longer a Republican.’  Note to Colin: you haven’t been a Republican in 20 flipping years.  Meanwhile, DHS Secretary Chad Wolf announces he is resigning his position.  The rats continue jumping off the ship.  Finally, Louisiana Democrat Congressman Benny Thompson says, ‘Republicans should be on the NO-FLY LIST.’  Wow.  Talk about unification!
  76. 2021 Monday I: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 90,724,811 confirmed cases, +719,024, 1,941,143, confirmed deaths, +9,761, and 50,167,081 confirmed recoveries, +281,801.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 22,708,005 confirmed cases, up 256,882 from yesterday’s reporting, 378,580 confirmed deaths, UP 2,049, and 9,900,635 confirmed recoveries, UP 49,981.
  77. 2021 Monday 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: 2,745,197 confirmed cases, 30,057 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases, 309 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 276,383 confirmed cases, 3,776 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Oklahoma: currently, they have 335,247 confirmed cases, 2,775 confirmed deaths, and 289,309 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 419,907 confirmed recoveries.
  78. 2021 Monday K:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,008.69, DOWN 89.28 points (-0.29%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,036.43, DOWN 165.54 points (-1.25%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,799.61, DOWN 25.07 points (-0.66%).  The price of GOLD is $1,847.00 per troy oz., -3.80 (-0.21%) while the price of SILVER is $25.14 per troy ounce, -0.149 (-0.59%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,043.90 per troy oz, -0.70 (-0.07%) while the price of COPPER is $3.56 per pound, -0.0065 (-0.18%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,378.80 per troy oz, +13.80 (+0.58%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.13 per barrel, -0.12 (-0.23%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.48 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.04.  In other economic news, Staples offers $2.1 billion to buy Office Depot.  Still awaiting a reply.
  79. 2021 Monday L: Noted legal scholar Alan Dershowitz tells Newsmax TV that ‘once President Donald J. Trump leaves office, it is impossible to impeach him on anything after the fact.’  He also points out that there is not enough time for the Democrats and their RINO stooges to impeach the 45th president.  No wonder the Democrats want to see Newsmax sent packing along with One America News.  Meanwhile, liberal bigwigs are calling for the compilation of lists so that all personnel who worked for President Trump can be branded with the scarlet letter so they can never work again or participate in civil society.  What has happened to our country?
  80. 2021 Monday M: The worst governor in the history of California- the Loser-nator Arnold Schwarzenegger- says that President Trump is the worst president in the history of the country.  Arnold, go to perdition!   Meanwhile, President Donald Trump awards Congressman Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, the Congressional Medal of Freedom.  Elsewhere, freshman Congresswoman Ashley Hinson, R-IA, demands House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi to stop delivery of China Daily newspaper to every congressional office.  WTF?  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, they now say they might ‘let some of the World Health Organization investigators seeking info on the Xi Jinping Bat Flu entry into their totalitarian country.
  81. 2021 Monday N: Archaeologists in Mexico discover more than 100 mammoth skeletons in an excavation.  Meanwhile, two gorillas in the San Diego Zoo test positive for the Kung Flu.  Elsewhere, NASA extends missions to Jupiter and Mars through at least 2022 after seeing noteworthy progress in their exploration efforts.  We hope ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden won’t gut the space agency as he and his former boss did in 2009.  Next, an Idaho internet provider announces it’s going to block both Facebook and Twitter beginning on Wednesday.  Finally, more than 100,000 Americans along the Gulf Coast are without power as a feisty winter storm batters the area. 
  82. 2021 Monday O: New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo now is crying about the economic devastation affecting the Empire State, looking into the camera, telling the dwindling number of viewers who continue paying attention to this ignoramus, that ‘we must reopen or there will be nothing to reopen ever again.’  What the hell does this flipping POS think?  Governor Cuomo and his twin moron, NYC Mayor Bill Di Blasio have ruined a great state and ruined a once-world-class city in their fight to defy President Trump.  They also have caused tens of thousands of COVID-19 vaccines to end up in the garbage.   Lock both of these slope-headed morons up.
  83. 2021 Monday P: End of the Night News- after having a good week last week, Bitcoin plummets by 20-percent, settling at $32,000 after being at $40,000 last week.   Speaking of losers, Twitter loses $5 billion in stock value after trashing Donald Trump and blaming him for the Antifa-caused riots on Capitol Hill last Wednesday.  Meanwhile, Abbott receives FDA clearance for a blood test that will help diagnose concussions faster than and less costly than brain scans. 
  84. 2021 Monday Q: The 18th U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao- wife of Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell- left office on this date.  A RINO, she served under President Donald J. Trump as a favor to her husband (and in the hope her husband would help the president) from January 31, 2017, until today.  Meanwhile, Acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf stepped down from office on this date.  A Republican, he served under President Donald J. Trump from November 13, 2019, until today.  His replacement- Acting DHS Secretary Pete Gaynor served from today until January 20, 2021, when the illegitimate Biden regime took control of the White House.
  85. 2022 Tuesday: Everyone knows the drill- let’s see what the Chi-Coms and their ding-a-ling stooge in the White House are up to today!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

There is one thing one can say about British folk-rock band, Fairport Convention, and that is, they continue soldiering along while others of their generation have boarded up the windows, sealed the doors, and slapped ‘gone fishing’ notices on the plywood.  The band’s next live album, “Journeyman’s Grace,” hit record store shelves on August 18, 2005.  The band included virtuoso Andy Guttridge (acoustic guitars), Ric Sanders (violins), Dave Pegg (acoustic and electric basses, and tenor mandola), Simon Nichol (guitars and vocals), Gerry Conway (drums), and Chris Leslie (mandolins, fiddles, cellos, and flutes).  The two discs contain 20 classic tunes as only this veteran band can deliver which is why we encourage everyone to rush out to their favorite record shop and pick it up.  You will be glad you did, that we guarantee.

TODAY IN HISTORY, TUESDAY JANUARY 11, 2022, BLOG POST #4,364

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

Monday, January 11, 2021, Today in History:  

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


Tuesday, January 12, 2021:

ENDNOTES:

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

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

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

[iv] Not sure when we will begin promoting the Amboy Dukes and Ted Nugent, but we hope to do so within the next decade.  Please stay tuned.

[v] We began promoting the music of Foghat, one of the all-time greatest rock bands to explode out of England, beginning on Monday, 18-February-2018 through Monday, 19-March-2018.  We hope you will seek the music of this celebrated group out by checking out the blog posts on those dates.

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

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

[viii] We hope to promote the music of this famous British band, T-Rex, sometime within the next five years.

[ix] 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.

[x] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates.  We thank you.

[xi] Late in the day the famed football coach said he would not accept the honor; we believe out of cowardice as to what might happen if he did.  Can’t have President Donald Trump give him an award when everyone hates the guy, right?  What a pussy.

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!

The AICPENDBLOG.COM believes war is going to erupt within the first seven to ten days of the New Year

b. The Russians are acting as though they are going to fall back but we believe a committed, multi-nation pact is going to launch war across simultaneous portions of the globe shortly after the New Year’s festivities die down. We think the PLA will begin moving on Taiwan, Russia on Ukraine, and other portions of Eastern Europe, as well as actions in the Persian Gulf, on the Korean Peninsula, and even within the United States what with all the military-aged males who have been flowing in over the past year. Buy ammo and buy more guns.

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 319

DAY THREE HUNDRED-AND-FORTY-THREE OF THE BIDEN REGIME

362. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, DECEMBER 28, 2021, UPDATE A:

KWANZAA CELEBRATION 2021 DAY THREE

The AICPENDBLOG.COM believes war is going to erupt within the first seven to ten days of the New Year

  1. 2021 Tuesday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole: 283,209,339 confirmed cases, +1,370,488, 5,430,731 confirmed deaths, +7,740 and 251,806,489 confirmed recoveries, +593,241. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 54,148,544 confirmed cases, UP 410,865 from yesterday’s reporting, 842,161 confirmed deaths, UP +2,912,[i] and 41,325,110 confirmed recoveries, UP 127,377. We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ii]    
  2. 2021 Tuesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 436,312 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 32,990 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths.  Joe has done this in, uh, 342 days.  Congratulations, Joe!  You said you would combat COVID-19 and it appears that COVID has conquered you.  YOU.  Loser.

  6. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $4.656 per gallon, $3.225 in Florida, $4.333 in Hawaii, and $3.856 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Delaware- $3.283.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the 81st HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- Bhutan: $4.364 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $29,378,314,824,600 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[x]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Singapore the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Saudi Arabia 2 with $138,000,000,000 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  7. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- The world famous ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been Johnny-on-the-spot now for 275 days and has not shown up to do half-an-hour’s work in 188 days.  A new report says that meth and fentanyl seizures in Mexico are skyrocketing as the Biden-Harris regime’s buddies, the Chi-Coms continue pouring these dangerous drugs into our southern neighbor.  Time to declare war on Mexico and thus begin a shadow war with the filthy, cockroach-eating Chi-Coms.   Meanwhile, new stats say that Florida leads the country in migration as people fleeing other states are moving there while the federal government is dumping hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens across the state to shape future elections to come.
  8. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II- Congressman Michael Burgess, R-TX, 26th congressional district, said today that in his ’20 years in office, he has never seen the border this bad.’  Hence, why we say they must lay in minefields, punji stake traps, dig antipersonnel, antivehicular, and anti-boat obstacles, seed the Rio Grande with alligator pups, barbed wire fencing down the center of the river on the boundary line, perhaps even seed the river with piranha fish.  We think they must build the wall, dig cisterns with which if illegals are tunneling under the border we can drop mustard gas, have the U.S. military establish forts along the border like once there was, and have a shoot on sight policy for all coyotes and human smugglers.  We may have to have Predator drones flying military actions along the southern border as this crap simply must stop.
  9. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I- Lovers of freedom in Germany numbering in the hundreds of thousands are taking to the streets of major cities demanding an end to the harsh COVID-19 vaccine and mask mandates.  Enough is enough.  Berlin’s new lockdown and restriction orders began today, and the German people are up in arms over them.   Meanwhile, even as the Russians are moving approximately 2/3rds of a division of troops away from the eastern border with Ukraine, everyone is thinking NOTHING is going to occur, that Vladimir Putin is terrified of NATO and of Joe Biden, wetting his bed and cowering beneath the sheets.  Yup.  Sure.  Friends, my colleagues and I believe that  the war is going to begin on or shortly after New Year’s Day when Russians begin assaulting Ukraine from three sides, the Chi-Coms move against Taiwan, North Korea begins committing provocative acts against the South, and Iran begins moving to solidify its hold on Iraq while intimidating the Gulf Arab states.  We expect jihadist groups to strike Israel and even trouble in Latin America and across the United States as all the illegal aliens of military age spread out across the country begin carrying out guerilla actions against military installations, power plants, industry, and even against civilians.  This is not good and anyone who believes our enemies are not working in concert to turn us into a smoking ruin is absolutely crazy.  Look for hostilities within the first 7-10 days of January.  Chef Bea O’Malley.
  10. 2021 Tuesday I: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News- As New York goes down the path of COVID-19 unconstitutional vaccine and mask mandates what with them going into hyperdrive yesterday, Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis, R-NY 11th congressional district, says, ‘New Yorkers are growing sick and tired of the never-ending mandates and loss of freedom.’  A new study says that in the era of harsh COVID-19 lockdowns and mandates, schoolchildren are seeing their IQs lowered and their social skills hindered.
  11. 2021 Tuesday J: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News II- The Centers for Disease Control are investigating 86 separate cruise ships as cases of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu continue skyrocketing.  Meanwhile, as cases of Omicron variant of the ‘VID continue going up, the NCAA has announced the cancelation of at least four bowl games sending college athletes into a downward spiral and causing the cancelations of hotel rooms, airlines flights, and rental cars as well as loss of revenue in the cities so affected.  How cruel.  In other news, Dr. Michael Savage told Newsmax today that New York City has become the ‘Fourth Reich’ what with the NYPD going after young children dining in restaurants with their parents who haven’t a vaccine card to show the Joestapo.  This occurred after horrific images of police goons traumatizing young kids at the behest of their outgoing leader, Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio.  Everyone should tell this short-timer to go f**k himself.
  12. 2021 Tuesday K: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News- (1) Pfizer: $58.01 (2) AstraZeneca: $58.32 (3) Merck & Company: $76.81 (4) Johnson & Johnson: $170.35 (5) Novavax: $155.84 (6) BioNTech: $241.40 (7) Moderna: $241.44.

  17. 2021 Tuesday P: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster-  As the Biden regime continues its freefall down the bottomless chasm, the White House usurper now says the federal government is not responsible for contending with the COVID-19 crisis, the one he swore upon a stack of Holy Bibles during the 2019-2020 presidential campaign he would within moments of entering the front door of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.  People on both sides of the aisle are slamming him over his surrender on this issue and some Republicans are asking about the validity of his vaccine mandates IF the feds bear no responsibility for dealing with the Wuhan flu.  In even crazier news, Scandinavian climate activist and all-around nasty girl, Greta Thunberg, slammed doddering old Joe Biden over his mishandling (in her eyes) of the ‘climate crisis,’ noting he lacks a coherent policy and is NOT a leader.  Ouch.
  18. 2021 Tuesday Q: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation- CNN legal analyst Norm Eisen claims that ‘Trump supporters came to Capitol Hill on January 06, 2021, prepared for war.’  Uh, okay, how come not a one is charged with insurrection.  Meanwhile, the losers running this bogus charade have agreed to shield some of President Donald J. Trump’s documents.’  We shall see.  In other news, Ali Alexander- the man who organized the Stop the Steal Rally on that fateful day- has accused the corrupt hacks on the committee of waging lawfare against him by trying to drive him into the poor house what with all the ongoing demands for documents, appearances, and cooperation to which he has complied and still, they want more.
  19. 2021 Tuesday R: Political News I- A new poll says that a vast majority of American parents are not okay with schools instructing their kids about gender and LGBTQIA+ issues.   Next, talk show host Joe Rogan says that in 2024, ‘Michelle Obama can beat President Donald J. Trump.’  In other news, it almost appears to be a daily thing among Democrats what with Congressman Bobby Lee “Black Panther” Rush, CPUSA-IL 1st congressional district, now says that he, too, has tested positive for the Chi-Vi.
  20. 2021 Tuesday S: Political News II- A new report says that should Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci, head of the NIH, should retire, his retirement package will be the largest in the history of the federal government.  Speaking of this loser, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, said of ‘Dr. Feelgood,’ that his push for vaccines no matter what has led to far more COVID-19 deaths than would have occurred had he just left things alone.  The Fauch went bat-crap crazy when he realized how much he could line his pockets with peddling vaccines to an unsuspecting American public.
  21. 2021 Tuesday T: Political News III- No matter what the Dems (and RINOs) do to her, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, is leading all polls in her bid to win a second term in 2022.  Next, Congressman James Comer, R-KY 1st congressional district, says that if Joe Biden did have a model for combatting the Yellow Flu, he should model it on ‘America’s Governor’ Ron DeSantis, R-FL, who has done an amazing job fighting the virus while keeping life as normal as possible for his citizens.  We agree.
  22. 2021 Tuesday U: U.S. Military News- U.S. warships to remain on station in the Mediterranean Theater as tensions continue to mount over Russian actions near Ukraine.   Meanwhile, the Pentagon has announced that they have a strategy for moving forward against GOP governors resisting the federal government’s mandate that ALL U.S. military personnel, National Guard, and federal contractors undergo vaccination for the dink-a-link virus sent to us by the Chi-Coms.  Resist!  Meanwhile, Pentagon stooge and mouthpiece John Kirby says that their investigations into extremism in the ranks has turned up less than one hundred military personnel who may have participated in banned activities out of an active-duty service number of more than 2.2 million.  Wow.  How horrible!  Begin building the gibbets and coiling the ropes.
  23. 2021 Tuesday V: Crime and Punishment News- The judge in the trial of Jeffrey Epstein’s procurer, Ghislaine Maxwell, has given the defense a wonderful reason for appealing any negative outcome in the trial by encouraging the seemingly deadlocked jurors to rush to a decision.  The judge cites fears of rising COVID-19 cases and wants jurors to hurry in their deliberations.  If they find her ‘guilty,’ she is going to win at appeal.  Elsewhere, in the now discredited ‘plot to kidnap Governor Gretchen “Gravel Gertie” Whitmer, DS-MI, lawyers for the one or two REAL participants are seeking dismissal on all charges as the other six, seven, or eight participants were either federal agents or stooges on the federal government’s payroll.  Let them go.
  24. 2021 Tuesday W: Law Enforcement News I- A police dispatcher in Chicago, Illinois, who happens to be black, challenged corrupt, dimwitted Mayor Lori “Frog-Face” Lightfoot over her lack of enforcing laws in the Windy City and said to her in a viral rant, “The people are sick of it!”  Elsewhere, many cities now witnessing astronomical homicide rates veered far left on the defund the police agenda.  They deserve what they get.  Next, the aggressive ‘Karen’ who assaulted an 80-year-old man on a recent domestic airlines flight for not wearing a mask (he was eating) while she was NOT wearing a mask and spewing spittle from her mouth over the poor passenger is being charged with assault.  What the heck is wrong with these people?
  25. 2021 Tuesday X: Mass Shootings News– Over the Christmas holiday in Chicago, thugs took time off to celebrate the holidays.  Only 22 shootings with just two dead.  Merry Christmas.  Elsewhere, some POS thug in Colorado went on a shooting rampage killing at least four and wounding three.  In other related news, 2021 has proven to be the worst year for police deaths in the United States in history what with between 358 and 477 deaths.  Not good.  Time for some undercover actions to begin cleaning out the thugs via star chambers and private contractor actions.
  26. 2021 Tuesday Y: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories- Famed NFL coach and commentator John Madden dies at age 85.  Meanwhile, former Senate Majority Leader Senator Harry Reid, D-NV, dies at age 82.  In other news, while the world continues mourning the death of South African Archbishop Desmond Tutu, famed legal scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz says, “NOT SO FAST- the man was a dangerous Antisemite.”
  27. 2021 Tuesday Z: New York State News- In New York, the district attorney in charge of investigating disgraced former Empire State Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Gov, aka the ‘Gropin’ Gov,’ says that this sex fiend will not be charged in two of the cases his victims have alleged he fondled or groped them.  It appears the charges against him that forced him to resign from office are crumbling by the day.
  28. 2021 Tuesday AA: Sports News I- Corporations do not want to sponsor NASCAR driver Brandon Brown, the poor sap around whom the “LET’S GO BRANDON” movement has grown, because they are fearful that somehow it will reflect on them.  It was the flipping reporter’s fault- not the driver’s- around which the now-iconic chant has grown.  She was interviewing the racecar driver while fans in the stands were chanting, “F**K JOE BIDEN,” and she misconstrued the chant as “Let’s go Brandon.”  Look, can we stop canceling people?  The AICPENDBLOG.COM will sponsor the guy.
  29. 2021 Tuesday BB: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw- Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1724 what with a $201 million jackpot on the line: 03, 05, 08, 31, 38, and Mega 04.  Out of 85,840 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $21,631.

352. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, DECEMBER 18, 2021

69. 2020 Friday A: After we learn that Chief Justice John Roberts of the U.S. Supreme Court did NOT take the multi-state lawsuit headed by Texas regarding election fraud and corruption because he was AFRAID of mob violence if he did, he throws President Trump a bone by upholding the administration’s edict NOT to include illegal aliens in the 2020 Census as we shouldn’t. Illegals are NOT American citizens and have no right to anything in this country other than a quick deportation.

  72. 2020 Friday D: Speaking of the Chi-Coms, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 75,179,482 confirmed cases, +654,493, 1,667,124, confirmed deaths, +9,418, and 42,512,618 confirmed recoveries (interestingly down from a week ago), +318,734.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 17,401,776 confirmed cases, up 255,944 from yesterday’s reporting, 313,797 confirmed deaths, UP 1,711, and 7,777,776 confirmed recoveries, UP 12,256.  Speaking of the Xi Jinping Chi-Com flu, Vice President Mike Pence and Second Lady Karen Pence received vaccinations for the Yellow Fever 2020 today.  Former Beatle Paul McCartney says he will get vaccinated.  Meanwhile, the FDA is working to get the Moderna vaccine into use while a poll reports that 71-percent of Democrats and 41-percent of Republicans must get the Wuhan Virus vaccine if one wants to return to work.

  75. 2020 Friday G: We learn that the ATF- the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives is trying to emplace new rules on AR-15 pistols, firearms that come with braces that strap to the shooter’s forearms, could soon have requirements demanding they be registered, dismantled, turned in to the government, or destroyed.  It’s like we always say: GO BUY YOUR GUNS NOW.  Then, find secure holding places for them because when government comes a-knocking on one’s door demanding your guns, ‘oh, gee, some illegal alien stole them yesterday and I was just about to report them.’  F**k the government if “Pro-China Joe” Biden begins running it and that moron of morons, Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke comes looking for them.  We are telling you; people are going to get themselves shot.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Record companies being what they are once again set out to make some money via remastering the works of Richard and Linda Thompson.  The resulting effort was “The Best of Richard and Linda Thompson: The Island Record Years” which is a nice repackaging of earlier works all nicely remastered and polished for new generations of fans.  While some loves of Richard Thompson may choose to overlook these years, they were wonderful what with her softer elements combined with his harder rock efforts.  We love the album and believe that all diehard fans as well as loads of new ones will, too.  Please, seek it out and consider adding it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

Friday, December 18, 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] Sometime within the next decade, we hope to present the music of the Classical composers as without them, we would live in a barbarous world where Islamist scum murder innocent people at will.  Music is what sets civilized people apart from the savages.

[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 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.

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

[v] One of the greatest saxophonists of his time, he performed with numerous bands but primarily the Rolling Stones.

[vi] We promoted the music of this venerable British rock band as part of a series of interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This included the Small Faces, Faces, Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood, Jeff Beck, Steve Marriott, Humble Pie, and other interconnected parts.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[vii] We are not sure when we will present the music of the Cars but if you are still with us when we celebrate our second decade of activity, you may see them then so please, stay with us.  We thank you.

[viii] We will present the music of Chicago sometime in 2030 so we hope you will remain with us until then.

[ix] We are surprised that no one ever assassinated this worthless POS.  However, he died of gut cancer because instead of coming to the United States or Spain for treatment, he went to Cuba, a place Democrats say has ‘the best health care system in the world’ and which they want to replicate here in the United States with “Medicare for All,” which means “NOT Medicare at All” but a crap system.

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
