  60. 2020 Sunday: For the first time in 45 years, NASA and SpaceX conduct a successful water landing as the Dragon X crew capsule returns two American astronauts- Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley- to Earth after two months on the International Space Station.  No longer does the United States need to pay Vladimir Putin’s Russia $85 million a pop to send American astronauts into space which once again proves to the world that Donald Trump is not a Russian stooge. 
  61. 2020 Sunday A: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- The Beijing Bat Flu, the one Xi Jinping sent to the rest of the world, continues trashing the world as the escapee from the Wuhan Institute of Virology continues taking names and calling numbers.  Here are the stats for the globe for today: 17,852,451 confirmed cases, UP 257,910 cases, 679,794 confirmed deaths, UP 355, and 10,598,327 confirmed recoveries, UP 265,161.  In the United States, here are the stats for today: 4,740,401 confirmed cases, UP 54,187, 157,113 confirmed deaths, UP 743, and 2,304,851 confirmed recoveries, UP 11,623.  The question is, WHEN are the Chi-Coms going to pay the GIGANTIC PRICE for their crimes?

  63. 2020 Sunday C: Anxious liberals are awaiting the VP pick of former Vice President Joe Biden, expected sometime this upcoming week.  Many believe it’s going to be California Sen. Kamala Harris, a woman who has achieved every position through the alleged trading of sexual favors to achieve it.  Others think it might be the Pelosi favorite, California Rep. Karen Bass, a known fan of Fidel and Raul Castro.  Others think it might be noted ‘woman of color,’ Senator Liz Warren of Massachusetts while others ponder the pick as being Susan Rice, former National Security Advisor in the Obama administration.  Still others contend Joe Biden has no clue as to who it’s going to be and awaits notice from whomever is TRULY behind his campaign.  At one time, many of us believed it could be Michelle Obama as the top of the ticket but now, who knows- it might be angry loser Stacey Abrams.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 311,417 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 92,661 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- Massachusetts: $3.032.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Canada: $4.739 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,595,425,431071 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Mexico, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Kuwait with $47 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  70. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day No. 132 for the world-famous ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the calamity befalling the nation along the southern border and Day No. 38 since her one- and only- LOL (as she always does)- visit to the slowest sector in the entire region.  Every day, approximately 5,000-10,000 illegal aliens are crossing into the United States, the advance guard of an international occupation force.  As they belittle and vilify white people using the same tactics that fat toad, Hugo Chavez, employed in Venezuela to transform his country from the most prosperous nation in Latin America to the absolute worst one in less than a decade.  What Hugo did is what the Nazis did before him and that is to single out one group, isolate it, make them highly unpopular, destroy them, and appropriate everything they own.  We must resist and the frigging Republicans must wake the f**k up.
  71. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Even though a federal judge ordered an end to the DACA program, The USCIS- the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services is acting as though the judge’s ruling means nothing.  IF President Trump had told a judge to buzz off, he would be impeached yet again, yet that senile fool Joe Biden will get away with everything until his use to his handlers ends.  Ah, well, One America News presents the current numbers of the Biden Border Debacle as follows: first, here is the cost for just this day of caring for the illegal alien invaders: $509,880,896.  Second, here is the cost for this year of caring for all the illegal aliens: $233,934,602,240.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal aliens who have crossed into the United States just this year: 2,397,642.  Fourth and final, here are the numbers for the illegal aliens estimated to be in the country as you read this: 36,397,646.  We have said since the blog’s inception that back in 2009, the numbers were around 35-50 million.  Now, we believe the numbers are closer to 75-to-100 million and this is not good, not good at all.  We must round them up, imprison them in Joe Arpaio-style tent prisons in the desert making them work, then load them onto all available transports and deport them back to whence the f**k they came.
  72. 2021 Monday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I- We learned today that the Chi-Coms are openly boasting that the Biden regime could not stop them from launching an amphibious and airborne invasion of Taiwan.  The U.S. Navy has been drawing ire over its emphasis on WOKE POLITICS rather than preparing for warfighting.  (Note- we have said this before and will say it again: the Chi-Coms although most likely ultimately victorious in invading Taiwan will suffer losses the likes of which, they cannot comprehend.  Look what the badly outnumbered U.S. Marines did to the Imperial Japanese when the latter invaded Wake Island shortly after Pearl Harbor.  The Taiwanese people are FREE people, and the Chi-Coms are communists, and the FREE people will fight to the bitter end.  We expect the Chi-Coms could easily lose 2-5 million people in the invasion, in the surrounding waters, and in the air.  Sure, a drop in the bucket for them but the global embarrassment would be humiliating to the country that wants to rule both the world and the near Solar System.  What?  Are they planning on building gulags on the moon and Mars?).
  73. 2021 Monday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– (Former) Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe says that the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing should be yanked from that country due to them letting loose the Xi Jinping Bat Flu across the world just as they also covered it up to the best of their abilities.  A new report compiled by the GOP proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that Xi Jinping’s namesake virus was allowed to leak from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Rep. Tim Burchett, R-TN 2nd CD, says there’s NO WAY that Joe Biden will go after Beijing for the crimes they’ve committed.   Meanwhile, a new poll from Rasmussen says that a majority of (brain dead) Dems want mask mandates reinstituted.’  What a swarm of ants.  One of the ants- New York City Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio says HE won’t be reinstituting mask mandates.  The dog dingus is trying to get people to return to the Big Apple.
  74. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– The Biden regime is thrashing around like U.S. Olympian Raven Saunders when she was twerking on the sidelines at the Tokyo Olympic Games this past weekend: since the Centers for Disease Control cannot stop the eviction moratorium, mouthpieces are urging sympathetic states to continue the moratorium.  (Note- look- furloughed and/or unemployed workers were getting an extra $300 per week or $1,200 per month.  WTF weren’t they paying their rent?  Landlords have bills, too, for Christ’s Sake!)  Meanwhile, Rep. Doug LaMalfa, R-CA 1st CD, says that the GOP is going to have to develop its own COVID-19 protocols.  Next, fully vaccinated Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, is being treated for a mild case of the Chi-Vi.  In other Xi Jinping Bat Flu news, Governor John Bel Edwards, DS-LA, is ordering a new round of INDOOR mask mandates.  Oh, boy.
  75. 2021 Monday K: Voting Integrity-Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Attorney General Mark Brnovich, R-AZ, says that the Democrats and far-left rabble rousers have been abusing the elections systems for years, if not decades.   Meanwhile, nearly 60 House Republicans ask a judge to toss the Department of Justice lawsuit against the State of Georgia over its new voting laws onto the scrap heap of history.  It is a bogus lawsuit filed by a fraudulent Department of Justice.
  76. 2021 Monday K: Political News I– President Donald J. Trump’s attorney said the recent order by U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland directed to the Internal Revenue Service to hand over his client’s tax returns to Congress for yet another ‘shit show’ in the House is both ‘harassment and outrageous.’  Meanwhile, Eli Lake says there’s still time for Joe Biden to ditch the crackpot idea of returning to the Iran nuclear deal talks.  We hope Joe listens, but we know he won’t. 
  77. 2021 Monday M: Political News II– Saturday Night Live cast member Michael Che was forced to scrub his social media accounts after making hateful jokes about gymnast Simone Biles.  Had he made them about a conservative, everything would be fine, but he made them about America’s favorite gymnast and here is what the bozo said: “Larry Nasser [sic] understands Simone Biles better than anyone.  He, too, had to quit doing what he loved at the pinnacle of his career because of mounting pressures.”  Elsewhere, ‘Cho-Mo’ Senator Bob Menendez, DS-NJ, and 10 European counterparts are openly condemning Joe Biden’s Nord Stream 2 ‘deal’ with Vladimir Putin. 
  78. 2021 Monday N: Political News III– Okay, here is some of what is included in the ‘bipartisan infrastructure bill’- $66 billion for railways, $658 billion to expand broadband internet access, $55 billion on clean water projects like getting rid of lead pipes, and $7.5 billion for electric vehicle charging stations.  Here is more of what is in the bill: $2.5 billion on welcome centers for migrants (we suggest minefields), $1 billion for the commission being chaired by Senator Joe Manchin’s wife (nothing like spreading a billion dollars around to buy votes), and money being doled out to various groups will be doled out by RACE and ‘gender identity’ will be recognized as a protected class- what does this have to do with frigging infrastructure?
  79. 2021 Monday O: Mass Shootings News– Over the weekend in Chicago, a long-time Democrat-controlled hellhole, 50 people were shot and five were killed.  Just another weekend in the Windy City but the body count was less than normal.
  80. 2022 Tuesday: Much talk about communist China lighting up Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi should she fly into Taiwan which we find absolutely humorous.  Shoot her down, no one would miss her.  On the serious side, IF the Chi-Coms intend to invade Taiwan- the legitimate China, the REAL China, the rightful owner of the mainland- the Chi-Coms must cross almost 100 miles of open water, dangerous water, perilous water.  Adolf Hitler was stymied by the 20 miles of the English Channel in 1940 and therefore never invaded Great Britain.  Do the Chi-Coms possess the balls to invade Taiwan?  The best way to thwart an invasion fleet is to launch drone swarms in the hundreds of thousands, perhaps in the millions.  Each drone would carry explosives and would swamp the fleet.  They would slash through the bridge windows, down the smokestack funnels and into the engine rooms, into the barrels of the deck guns, into the engines of jet aircraft waiting to launch, while underseas drones would dump mines all around the Chi-Com navy’s vessels.  The devastation would be tremendous, vast numbers of ships, men and materiel sent to the bottom in an instant.  Of course, undeclared nuclear power Taiwan could drop a BIG ONE smack dab in the midst of the invasion fleet.  Problem solved in a second.  It will be interesting to see…Chef Hector Santanamos “El Chilote” De Soto.

  17. 1917 Wednesday: Members of various political groups within Canada form a coalition with which to govern the country throughout the remainder of World War I and to enact harsh conscription laws.  Ottawa wants to draft as many men as it can to hurry them to France along with their American counterparts to help crush the evil Huns.  Elsewhere, famed author Edgar Rice Burroughs releases the first novel in his Mars series, “A Princess of Mars.”  The story would revolve around John Carter who magically found himself transported from the Earth to Mars where he would become a great warrior and marry into Martian royalty.
  18. 1918 Thursday: As World War I approaches its final month, French Army units ‘liberate’ parts of the Balkans from the Austro-Hungarian Empire on this date: Montenegro, Albania, and Serbia, the final country of which the Austro-Hungarians had overrun and subjugated following a Serb assassinating the Archduke Ferdinand and his wife, Sophie, in Belgrade in the summer of 1914.

  30. 1941 Friday: As the German juggernaut continues plowing forward towards the Soviet capital of Moscow, Russian leader Josef Stalin commands favored General Georgy Zhukov to leave the defense of Leningrad to his subordinates and to come to the capital immediately to save the city from the Nazi barbarians.  Civilians in Moscow are already trying to find ways to flee the city so as to avoid capture by the Germans when or should it come…
  31. 1942 Saturday: The Germans continue pressing their attacks on the Soviet defenders in the smoldering city of Stalingrad.  They have cut the city into pockets full of defenders, but the Red Army and militia units continue clinging to the crossings on the Volga River.  The Luftwaffe continues its attacks across the city continuing to reduce it to rubble, which means the underground is contested as much as what’s left above ground.  German artillery continues hammering Russian supply boats crisscrossing the Volga River.  Meanwhile, Lt. Gen. Friedrich Paulus continues preparing the decisive hammer blow he plans to drop on the 14th.
  32. 1943 Sunday: Chiang Ka-shek took the oath of office as president of the Republic of (Free)  China.  Meanwhile, the German city of Münster becomes the target of the first daylight raid carried out by 236 B-17 Flying Fortresses of the U.S. Eighth Air Force.  German opposition was fierce and at least 30 bombers were lost with another 100-plus severely damaged and which struggled to limp home.  Still, the raid was a success and proved that daylight bombing could be effective.

  67. 2011 Monday: For the crime of having appeared in a film entitled, “Tehran for Sale,” a movie critical of the despotic regime running Iran, Iranian actress Marzieh Vafamehr receives her court-appointed public punishment: first, 90 lashes with a wooden cane and then a year in a hardcore Iranian slammer.  However, public outrage around the world caused an appellate court in that horrible country to remove the caning and to reduce the time in the slammer from 12 months to 3 months.  Still, that is three months too long to undergo rapes, beatings, and other mistreatment at the hands of barbaric jailers.
  68. 2012 Wednesday: In the U.S. President Obama nominates John R. Allen as Supreme Allied Commander Europe (SACEUR), with General Joseph Dunford positioned to succeed Allen in his previous post of commander of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Afghanistan.
  69. 2013 Thursday: The second American to orbit the Earth—astronaut Scott Carpenter who did so on Mercury 7—dies at the age of 88 from complications related to a stroke.
  70. 2014 Friday: North Korean observers puzzle about the whereabouts of ‘Great Leader’ Kim Jong-Un or what might have happened to him as he fails to show up at festivities of the North Korean Workers Party.  No one has seen the fat little thug since early September leading to the questions about his ‘condition.’  (We know he fears assassination).   Elsewhere, Malala Yousafzai wins the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize for her work to bring education to all women and girls in Pakistan and elsewhere in the world.
  71. 2015 Saturday: In Ankara, Turkey, some Islamist scumbags bomb a peace rally, killing at 95 and injuring another 200 or more attendees.  Meanwhile, two outside reports clear Cleveland Police officers for having shot 12-year-old black boy Tamir Rice.  The poor kid was playing with a toy gun in a city park and the cops believed it to be real, told him to drop it, and then shot him.  Not good.  Elsewhere, a U.S. Army officer urges NO JAIL TIME for deserter and then Taliban-held POW Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.  Finally, more than 120 anti-Islam protesters gathered outside a Phoenix, Arizona, mosque.  Allah akbar!
  72. 2016 Monday: U.S. House Speaker Paul “The Putz” Ryan, R-Wisconsin, delivers what he believes to be a death blow to the Trump campaign by informing the world he ‘will no longer defend it.’  This comes after the Friday disclosure of an Access Hollywood tape in which, candidate Donald Trump is heard telling Billy Bush about how being ‘rich and powerful allows him to get away with kissing and groping women.’  We also learn today that Hillary Clinton’s lead over the struggling Trump has risen to double digits.  Wow.  It looks like Mrs. Clinton is going to win BIG on Election Day!  Finally, U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg calls the U.S. National Anthem protests “dumb and disrespectful” for San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and other NFL players to protest racial inequality by refusing to stand for the flag and the anthem.  Listen, dummies, put your money where your mouths are; otherwise, shut up, and Love It or Leave It!  It’s time for that motto to return…
  73. 2017 Tuesday: In California, as out-of-control wildfires rage, the death toll hits at least 17 across Napa and Sonoma Counties.  Due to forest mismanagement and long-term neglect by Democrats and their environmentalist backers, the state is burning up.  It is horrifying as people, plants, and animals continue dying.  Meanwhile, EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt signs the proposal that will withdraw the United States from Barack Hussein Obama’s Clean Power Act.  Good.  Slash those regulations.  Finally, NFL owners discuss making their players stand for the National Anthem seeing that viewership, both on TV and in the stadiums, is at record lows.
  74. 2018 Wednesday:  Cat 4 Hurricane Matthew slams into the Florida and Georgia coastlines as it heads for the Carolinas.  With winds topping 155 MPH, people have evacuated but still, at least have died in mishaps related to the raging tempest.  Speaking of crappy weather, the United Nations issues a report that says ‘Extreme Weather’ has cost more than $2.9 trillion over the past 20 years.  Environmentalists around the planet are doing the jig in the streets, hoping they can force a world socialist government down the throats of all people.   Elsewhere, the DOW Jones Industrial Average drops more than 800 points as tech stocks crash.
  75. 2019 Thursday: As the Turkish army’s offensive into northern Syria gets underway, civilians find themselves under withering fire and forced to flee, many of them being killed by the angry Turks.   The former Ottoman Empire announces it wants to ‘establish a safe zone’ along its border and that means more than half-a-million Syrian Kurds must vacate or face punitive measures.   Elsewhere, to the delight of anti-Trumpists everywhere, two of Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani’s associates, Lev Parmas and Igor Fruman are taken into custody at Dulles International Airport for doing ‘dreadful things on behalf of the Ukraine and President Donald J. Trump.’  Fake news folks, fake news.  Finally, the estate of Prince slams the Trump campaign for using “Purple Rain” at a rally in Minnesota.  Wah, wah, and wah!
  76. 2020 Saturday: In Pennsylvania, a state where voter fraud appears is going to be rampant, a judge tosses a case launched by the Trump administration to halt the crooked mailing of mail-in ballots to every ‘registered citizen.’  Meanwhile, former Kansas senator and GOP presidential nominee Bob Dole says the ‘Presidential Debate Commission is stacked against Donald Trump and is very unfair.’  Speaking of Trump, he held a peaceful protest at the White House today while ever-senile “Pro-China Joe” Biden is working at recapturing Michigan from the GOP.   Elsewhere, the North Koreans roll out what has been called a ‘monster ICBM’ during their latest military parade but most believe it is little more than trickery.  If it is real, it will go farther and carry a far larger warhead or series of warheads than heretofore the North Koreans could.  Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi refuses the latest Trump administration Chi-Vi relief bill, demanding the one she wants that will cost American taxpayers more than a trillion dollars.  WTF is wrong with this babbling lunatic, they must add House speakers to the 25th Amendment so they can send her into much-needed retirement in North Korea.
  77. 2020 Saturday A: In New York City, anti-Semitic Mayor Bill Di Blasio continues his ‘war on Jews’ by threatening to arrest them if they break his draconian COVID-19 restrictions.  What’s next, ‘Mr. Worst Mayor in the Country?’  Are you going to require ALL Jews within the city sew yellow stars of David on their clothes so that your secret police can identify them easier? 
  78. 2020 Saturday B: The Chi-Coms are angry today, threatening WAR if the U.S. continues sailing through the South China Sea where they have built islands atop atolls and rock outcroppings and then militarized them to threaten fellow Southeast Asian nations.  The U.S. guided missile destroyer USS John McCain traversed the area which set the Chi-Coms to threatening all manner of retaliation.  Folks, the Chi-Coms are WHY God gave us the neutron bomb.  Let’s use it and show them who’s boss.  It’s bad enough they infected the world with a pandemic but to talk crap to the U.S. over the United States Navy sailing through international waters is BS.
  79. 2020 Saturday  C: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 37,019,381 confirmed cases, +313,168, 1,069,953, confirmed deaths, +5,533, and 25,711,805 confirmed recoveries, 241,208.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 7,786,164 confirmed cases, UP 28,255 from yesterday’s reporting, 217,319 confirmed deaths, UP 329, and 5,010,292 confirmed recoveries, UP 23,136.  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: 851,399 confirmed cases, 16,506 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 13,461 confirmed cases, 168 confirmed deaths, and 10,713 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 96,839 confirmed cases, 2,288 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Delaware- currently, they have 21,998 confirmed cases, 653 confirmed deaths, and 11,338 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor John Carney for being an honest Democratic politician- thank you.  Let’s look at Israel’s stats now that Mo is living there: 289,875 confirmed cases, 1,941 confirmed deaths, and 225,718 confirmed recoveries.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next Fairport Convention album, “Angel Delight,” came out on June 15, 1971, and featured a stripped down, rough-and-tumble group of musicians now that Richard Thompson bolted the barn.  The band features Simon Nichol (guitars, vocals), Dave Pegg (basses, mandolins, vocals), Dave Swarbrick (fiddle, mandolins, vocals, and viola), and Dave Mattacks (drums and percussion).  This eclectic British band would undergo many changes over the years which is why it has remained so vibrant and so alive (other than for brief periods of inactivity) which is why we contend you check this album out, give it a good listen, and add it to your growing collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-approved music, videos/DVDs, and even books.  Enjoy.

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

Saturday, October 10, 2020, Today in History Blog Post:

In eight short years, President Barack Obama corrupted and perverted every part of the federal government with which he came in contact- imagine what 8-12 years of a ‘President Kamala Harris’ could degrade and debase?
