32. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 01, 2022

1968 Thursday: During the Tet Offensive in Vietnam, the photo seen around the world: Saigon police chief Nguyen Ngoc Loan executes a captured Viet Cong officer with a bullet shot to the head. This would cause outrage around the First World with many claiming it to be an atrocity. We, however, have a different view: the guy was a communist terrorist and under the rules of modern warfare had NO rights whatsoever. The military codes in existence around the world recognize that terrorists, spies, guerillas, and others operating out of uniform can be executed in the field.

Trump under the bus blaming the 45th president’s ‘speech’ for what happened on January 6, 2021.  NOT an effective way to seek to remain a stalwart in the GOP there, senator, especially when evidence continues mounting showing that the riot was planned weeks ahead of the day of the mob riots.  We know the pipe bombs were planted the previous day.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Unlike many of their contemporaries, Fairport Convention had an attitude of ‘never say die’ and thus they continued their labors in the studio and on the road.  Today’s next album, “Festival Bell,” came out on January 18, 2011, and the fans hailed it as a beautiful new effort with 14 glorious tracks, 10 of which being originals and the other four covers.  The band features the quintet of Ric Sanders (violins), Dave Pegg (acoustic and electric basses, and tenor mandola), Simon Nichol (guitars and vocals), Gerry Conway (drums), and Chris Leslie (mandolins, fiddles, cellos, and flutes).  Again, we encourage everyone to visit their favorite nearest site for the absolute best in music, give it a good listen, and then see if you want to add it to your never-ending, always-growing collection like us.  We think you will be glad you did.

Monday, February 01, 2021, Today in History:  

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

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


Tuesday, February 01, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We began presenting the music of the Mothers of Invention and of Frank Zappa beginning on Monday, 21-January-2013 and concluded the presentation on Monday, 13-May-2013.  Please seek them out, we believe you will enjoy the music of this famed man and his band.

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

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

[iv] Something else of importance to note is that the U.S. was a guest of the South Vietnamese, helping them fight off the communist threat from North Vietnam and from communist thugs- the Viet Cong- in the South.  Thus, they had the right to do whatever they deemed necessary to do.  At the time of the execution, the battle was in full swing with the outcome possibly in doubt, so the SV police official did what he felt he had to do.  It is what it is and one other thing everyone should remember: IF you are going to fight a war against guerillas, do not allow the press free access to combat operations.  We believe we lost the war in South Vietnam because of two important issues: (1) the military did not capture territory and then hold it as it did in every previous war but beat the enemy and then allowed them to return the moment we left.  (2) The press cost us the war because it portrayed nothing but negative images to the home front, thus sapping the American people’s will to fight and helping sow the seeds of division by creating dissension among the American public.  Virtually every older scumbag in left-wing news today got their start shaping the antiwar movement in the 1960s and especially after 1968.  

[v] We began offering the music of the Doors on Saturday, 18-February-2012 and concluded them on Monday, 02-April-2012.  We encourage everyone to seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[vi] We look forward to doing the music of this famed funk-rock band.  The Ohio Players are amazing and what is even more exciting is the fact that the band is still alive today and performing to this day.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

24. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, JANUARY 24, 2022

2019 Thursday: The Trump administration recognizes Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó as the legitimate president of that troubled South American country. This of course drives the Venezuelans amok as they fight to quell ongoing civil disturbances over their attempted-fixed presidential elections.

  59. 2019 Thursday: The Trump administration recognizes Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó as the legitimate president of that troubled South American country.  This of course drives the Venezuelans amok as they fight to quell ongoing civil disturbances over their attempted-fixed presidential elections.  Canada, European and other Western nations recognize the opposition leader as the rightful winner whereas the totalitarian states around the globe don’t.  Elsewhere, competing funding bills in the U.S. Senate fail as everyone expected they would.  Meanwhile, House Democrats dangle the fraudulent fishhook of $5.7 billion for a VIRTUAL border wall meaning drones will hover ahigh watching millions of illegals as they swarm across the border.
  60. 2020 Friday: Iraqis continue marching through Baghdad and other cities in the country protesting the presence of U.S. troops on their soil following the droning of Quds Force commander General Qassim Soleimani on New Year’s Day.  The U.S. is unmoved but Iranian agents are causing trouble on the ground, seeking the people to rise up and to throw the Americans out of their country.  Elsewhere, following Iran’s floating of ‘opening a dialogue with its neighbors,’ the government of Saudi Arabia tells them to stop attacking oil facilities and oil tankers in the Gulf.  No reply.
  61. 2021 Sunday: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 99,006,885 confirmed cases, +718,738, 2,125,373, confirmed deaths, +15,615, and 54,608,134 confirmed recoveries, +352,720.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 25,227,940 confirmed cases, up 118,668 from yesterday’s reporting, 421,330 confirmed deaths, UP 2,272, and 10,987,457 confirmed recoveries, UP 13,290.  IF that leaning tower of drool, ‘President’ Joe Biden is going to save the country, he needs to save it NOW, ASAP, by getting the Trump vaccine to the people and ordering an immediate reopening of ALL businesses.
  62. 2021 Sunday A: 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: 3,163,830 confirmed cases, 36,816 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases (Hawaii has not updated their case numbers in more than a week), 336 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 304,107 confirmed cases, 4,182 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Wyoming: currently, they have 50,898 confirmed cases, 571 confirmed deaths, and 48,571 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 593,961 confirmed cases, 4,341 confirmed deaths, and 512,702 confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, Texas rolls out 100,000 Chi-Vi vaccine doses in a single day making BLUE states look like the losers they are.  Speaking of Blue States, Governor Gavin Newsom of California is being ripped apart for buying PPE from the Chi-Coms directly instead of American manufacturers.  Once again, is another direct tie between Democrats and their Chi-Com masters in Beijing.
  63. 2021 Sunday B: We learn today that Instagram is FORCING ALL USERS to ‘sign up’ for the White House account to make it look like ‘President’ Joe Biden- the usurper in chief- has a massive following when in fact, he has NO one.  Hence why many chef-authors and support staff at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day have shuttered their Instagram accounts among other pro-Chi-Com social media sites.  F**k them.  Speaking of scurrilous social media scumbags, Facebook closes Young Patriots accounts.  We already dumped Facebook and it’s amazing how much they cried when they did.  We guess they enjoy exercising the power and determining whether one is ‘permitted’ on their site or is not.  F**k them, too.
  64. 2021 Sunday C: Today we have both NFL Championship games- first, the NFC Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 30 (13-5) @ Green Bay Packers, 32 (14-3) and then the AFC Championship- Buffalo Bills, 17 (15-3) @ Kansas City Chiefs, 22 (15-2).  Out of 25 chef-authors here at the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day, aka AICPENDBLOG.COM, 17 say it’s going to be a ‘State Farm Super Bowl’ between Green Bay and Aaron Rodgers and Kansas City and Patrick Mahomes while the others don’t.  We shall see.    Results for the first game: Tampa Bay Buccaneers 31, Green Bay Packers, 26. NO STATE FARM SUPER BOWL this time around.  Eight of our colleagues are at 50-percent in their picks.  We shall see, again.   Here are the results for the second matchup and we must say, it was a brutal game.  Some of the Buffalo Bills’ offensive line behaved like Capitol Hill police officers did on January 06, stepping aside and almost waving the Chiefs in to sack or to commit some questionable hits on Josh Allen, QB of the Bills.    Final score: Chiefs, 38, Bills 24.  Next week, the Pro-Bowl then on February 07, 2021- Kansas City Chiefs @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers for Super Bowl LV.
  65. 2021 Sunday D: The Michigan GOP censures Rep. Fred Upton, one of theirs who voted for impeachment in the U.S. House of Representatives.  Payback is coming to all these losers.  Likewise, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey says he’s dropping a planned U.S. Senate run in 2022 because the Arizona GOP has censured him for handing the 2020 Presidential Election over to the Democrats and their standard-bearer, ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden. Next, Arizona GOP leader Dr. Kelli Ward wins re-election as the chair of the GOP in that state for another two years.  Speaking of the U.S. Senate and of ‘Pro-China Joe,’ Arkansas Republican Senator Tom Cotton says, ‘the Chi-Coms are blackmailing the ‘46th president’ with sanctions.   Elsewhere, the FBI rescues 33 kidnapped children from human traffickers and predators in the L.A. area.  God bless you!
  66. 2021 Sunday E: Chef Lilah in Hawaii says the Hawaii GOP is receiving loads of criticism over the party saying that “Q supporters” in Washington, D.C., are patriots, believing in what they believe.  She says, ‘that in every so-called conspiracy theory, an element of truth exists as otherwise it would not gain strength.’  She also says, ‘that Democrats are desperate to deflect blame from their leadership in the House telling Capitol Hill police officers to step aside and allow the Antifa-interlaced protesters easy entry into the Capitol Building on January 6.’  Look, Nancy Pelosi is out there accusing President Donald J. Trump of homicide for the people who lost their lives in the left-wing mob riots when she is the one who should shut up and lawyer up.  When the truth hits, no one will acquit Speaker Pelosi.  Finally, Chef Lilah says, ‘as for QAnon, why wouldn’t people believe this when they live in a country where millions of their fellow citizens- particularly minorities- have been aborted, a country in which fetal body parts are harvested and sold, a country in which, perversion, sexual deviancy, engineered racism, and the elimination of history, both good and bad, is at risk of being destroyed?’  No, she concludes by saying, ‘QAnon is not difficult to believe; no, it’s difficult to disbelieve when one closely examines what the left is doing to our country and why, the damage being caused, none of which is moral or Christian.’  God bless you, Chef Lilly!
  67. 2022 Monday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On March 15, 2008, Sandy Denny’s label released a much more concise package from the “Live at the BBC” Box Set that came out last year, called “The Best of the BBC Recordings.”  This one contained 16 tracks so fans who had much of her earlier BBC recordings could latch onto these for a lesser price than the big box or the shorter effort released shortly thereafter the expensive box.  We are not saying that the box set is not worth it because it most assuredly is, but this is also a good addition because you get some tunes you had no clue ever existed.  We hope you will visit Amazon.com, Discogs, AllMusic, eBay, or any other place you shop for the absolute best in music and consider making it a part of your listening day- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 410,072 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 47,700 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in ELEVEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 354 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Guitar-slinger Richard Thompson went on the road to promote his wonderful album, “Mock Tudor,” which resulted in yet another live album- “Live from Austin, Texas”- an album that hit record store shelves on May 15, 2005.  Joining Mr. Thompson (guitars/vocals) are parts 2 and 3 of his new acoustic ‘power trio’ of sorts: Danny Thompson (bass), and Michael Jerome (drums).  If you have yet to introduce the music of this long-lived guitarist, this is a superb way in which one can do it.  We hope you will seek it out wherever you shop for the absolute best in rock music- perhaps even going to the artist’s site- and picking it up.  You will be glad you did, undoubtedly.  Seek it out now.

2011 Friday: Oh, one must love the so-called ‘religion of peace!’ A suicide bomber strapped up with a suicide vest enters a public bathhouse in Kandahar Province in Afghanistan and before bathers can escape for the exits, the POS jihadist detonates his explosive device. In the ensuring explosion, 17 unfortunate guests are sent on a one-way trip to meet with Allah while another 20 or so people remain in varying states of distress. What is wrong with these f**king people?

  51. 2008 Monday: When asked why she was running for the White House, candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton says, ‘it’s personal for me, not just political.’ On the other side of the aisle, GOP candidate Mitt Romney says that he is an ‘agent of change.’  What a frigging laugh.  Romney represents the same old same old- RINO as always.

  53. 2010 Thursday: An employee at the ABB Power Building in St. Louis, Missouri, commits suicide after shooting eight people, three of them fatally.  Elsewhere, Beijing goes ballistic yet again as the Obama administration approves a massive arms sale to the freedom-loving peoples of FREE CHINA- Taiwan.  F**k those Chi-Coms.
  54. 2011 Friday: Oh, one must love the so-called ‘religion of peace!’  A suicide bomber strapped up with a suicide vest enters a public bathhouse in Kandahar Province in Afghanistan and before bathers can escape for the exits, the POS jihadist detonates his explosive device.  In the ensuring explosion, 17 unfortunate guests are sent on a one-way trip to meet with Allah while another 20 or so people remain in varying states of distress.  What is wrong with these f**king people?
  55. 2012 Saturday: Near Carterton, New Zealand, 11 people die when their hot air balloon collides with a power line and crashes in flames.  Elsewhere, in Nigeria, after jihadist group Boko Haram warns all Christians living in the northern portion of the country to vacate or die, radical Islamist scum begin launching waves of terror attacks.  At least 37 Christians are slain, numerous others wounded, and still more fleeing for their lives from the ‘religion of peace.’

  59. 2016 Thursday: Leftwing media reports that ‘national resistance’ is growing against ICE raids across the country.  Folks, we want the illegal aliens rounded up, loaded aboard whatever transports are available, and returned to sender.  Meanwhile in the Israeli occupied West Bank, an Israeli cop shoots and kills 4 Palestinians who were running amok.

  62. 2019 Monday: At Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California, #2 Clemson beats #1 Alabama by a final score of 44-16 to win the College Football National Championship.   Meanwhile, as the shutdown of the federal government continues grinding on (Democrats screeching about all the lost wages government employees are losing- they always get paid), President Donald J. Trump says that he has ‘plans to address the nation.’  Elsewhere, as Democrats visit the border with Mexico for some photo ops, they lambaste President Trump for saying ‘he might declare a national emergency to bring the government shutdown to an end.’
  63. 2020 Tuesday: Among the fake news media and their sycophant Democrat politicians, the buzzword about President Donald J. Trump this week is that he is an ‘assassin’ because he droned Quds Force scumbag terrorist leader Qassim Soleimani at the Baghdad Airport the previous week.  Meanwhile at the funeral of Gen. Soleimani in Tehran, 50 people are trampled to death and countless others injured as the million or more mourners go berserk.  What is it about these Muslim states that they know how to put on a ‘proper funeral?’  Meanwhile communist candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders goes on the attack by going after fading former Vice President Joe Biden who amazingly manages to cling to the top of the polls.   Later in the day, the Iranians begin firing barrages of cruise missiles into Iraq, targeting American bases.  Light them up, President Trump, light the camel monkeys up using neutron bombs.  Finally, famed rock drummer/lyricist Neil Peart of Rush[iii] dies in Santa Monica, California, at age 67 from a brain tumor. 
  64. 2021 Thursday: Here are the results for the Third Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award: first place winners are Xi Jinping and the Chi-Coms who came in with 664 votes and earn the symbolic dragging down into the bowels of the Lubyanka Prison and getting ‘lead to the back of the head.’  The winner of the second-place award- the Nadaraia and Sarkisian Award- is Governor Andrew Cuomo with 198 votes.  The third-place award- the Red Banner Idols Award- is Mayor Bill Di Blasio with 156 votes while the fourth and final place award winner of the Beijing Bat Bug Award is Governor Gavin Newsom with 143 votes.  Fifth place and out of the running is Mayor Eric Garcetti of Los Angeles, California, with 87 votes.  Congratulations to the four winners!
  65. 2021 Thursday A: House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi commands Vice President Mike Pence to use the 25th Amendment to remove President Donald J. Trump NOW; otherwise, the Democrats will launch immediate impeachment hearings with the end goal being to remove him before Inauguration Day as well as to prevent him from ever seeking federal office again.  Following yesterday’s Antifa and Black Lives Matter on the U.S. Capitol yesterday, various Trump administration officials are jumping ship, the riot being the perfect excuse.  Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao is leaving as are Matthew Pottinger (deputy national security adviser), Stephanie Grisham (chief of staff to First Lady Melania Trump), Sarah Matthews (deputy press secretary), John Costello (deputy assistant secretary of commerce), Mick Mulvaney (former White House chief of staff and special envoy to Northern Ireland), Rickie Niceta (White House social secretary), and Ryan Tully (senior director for European and Russian affairs at the National Security Council).  Amazing how convenient the ‘storming of the Capitol’ was for both the Democrats and wavering Republicans to either attack Trump or to abandon ship.  Still, more are said to follow on their bootheels.  Imagine if our enemies nuked us now?
  66. 2021 Thursday B: Body count for yesterday’s ‘storming of the Capitol 2021’ are four dead including a 14-year USAF veteran.  In the aftermath of the violence, Facebook, and Instagram block Donald Trump indefinitely while Twitter deleted ALL Trump tweets and threatens the 45th President with a permanent suspension.  Meanwhile, disgraced former FBI Director James Comey says, “Donald Trump should NOT be prosecuted.”  How nice. Elsewhere, Judge Leslie Abrams Gardner- sister of Stacey Abrams- continues to say, “She won’t recuse herself from the Georgia election fraud cases.”  Wish Republicans possessed balls like she does.
  67. 2021 Thursday C: Early this morning, both chambers of Congress certified the Electoral College accounts following a joint session of Congress.  “Pro-China Joe” Biden and “Kooky Kamala” Harris are now president-elect and vice-president-elect.”  The Chi-Coms have won, the country is toppled, and we either must get with the socialist-communist program or find ourselves in the gulags building canals to nowhere.  Meanwhile, an ebullient Senator Chuck Schumer, D-NY, says, ‘getting $2,000 stimulus checks to the American people are high on his agenda.’  What he fails to say is that ‘all relief money is taxable.’  Elsewhere, FEMA approves a disaster declaration for the aftermath of the Nashville Christmas Day bombing.
  68. 2021 Thursday D: Last week 787 thousand Americans filed for first-time jobless benefits which is down from last week albeit still high.  Meanwhile, as people flee California, Sacramento reports tax revenues are down by 43-percent.  Woe to those who remain because they must make up the difference: this means, YOU, middle class Californians.  
  69. 2021 Thursday E: As problems continue in the nation’s capital, the D.C. bomb squad is evacuating the Capitol area following suspicious packages being found.  Meanwhile, Acting DHS Secretary Ken Cuccinelli has DHS officials erecting fencing around the Capitol Building to prevent another mob assault on the buildings of government.  Simultaneously, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser extends the emergency declaration keeping the city locked down and on curfew for an additional 15 days.  Meanwhile, the ‘ever-reputable’ New York Times says, ‘Donald Trump is considering a pardon for himself.’  Speaking of the NYT and the Washington Post, we learn that these notables of American Mainstream News Media have participated along with other news sites in Chinese Communist Party propaganda events.  My, my, my!
  70. 2021 Thursday F: U.S. corporations announce they are considering blocking monetary support to all Republicans who participated in the raising of objections over the fraudulent 2020 Presidential Election.  This is how it goes, anyone supportive of Trump or of the rule of law will now find him-or-herself banned from normal society.   Still, the 45th president continues doing his job by adding Alibaba and Tencent to the Chi-Com stock bans on Wall Street.  Also, regarding the president, as protests sweep across the country designed to tarnish ALL Trump supporters, nine violent nuts undergo arrest in front of Trump Tower in Manhattan, N.Y.
  71. 2021 Thursday G: Amazon announces it’s going to invest $2 billion into building affordable housing in three locations across the United States.  Meanwhile, Politico is reporting that Vice President Mike Pence will attend the inauguration of “Pro-China Joe” Biden on January 20, 2021.  Elsewhere, the Girl Scouts of America are considering doing digital sales due to the Chi-Vi still running amok across the country.  Details on when sales will begin are coming soon.  They may still do door-to-door sales, too.
  72. 2021 Thursday H: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 87,792,629 confirmed cases, +1,040,315, 1,893,420, confirmed deaths, +18,100, and 49,009,936 confirmed recoveries, +372,200.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 21,670,559 confirmed cases, up 461,719 from yesterday’s reporting, 366,434 confirmed deaths, UP 6,589, and 9,696,913 confirmed recoveries, UP 101,980.
  73. 2021 Thursday I: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 2,548,494 confirmed cases, 28,040 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 22,527 confirmed cases, 299 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 265,790 confirmed cases, 3,681 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Iowa: currently, they have 291,394 confirmed cases, 4,065 confirmed deaths, and 251,660 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 463,448 confirmed cases, 3,529 confirmed deaths, and 398,638 confirmed recoveries. 
  74. 2021 Thursday J:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,041.13, UP 211.73 points (+0.69%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,067.48, UP 326.69 points (+2.56%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,803.79, UP 55.65 points (+1.48%).  The price of GOLD is $1,915.80 per troy oz., +2.20 (+0.11%) while the price of SILVER is $27.28 per troy ounce, +0.014 (+0.05%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,127.90 per troy oz, +3.30 (+0.29%) while the price of COPPER is $3.71 per pound, +0.0095 (+0.26%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,431.60 per troy oz, -16.50 (-0.67%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $50.96 per barrel, +0.13 (+0.26%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.48 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Russian rubles equals 74.34.
  75. 2021 Thursday K: After failing to stop the Antifa mob (in the guise of Trump supporters) that stormed the Capitol Building yesterday, Capitol Hill Police Chief Steven Sund is going to go into retirement.  He is suffering blame for not having anticipated the actions of Antifa trash that infiltrated the peaceful Trump supporters.  (It is important to note that a Capitol Hill police officer died today following injuries suffered in yesterday’s riot).  Federal prosecutors plan to file charges- including sedition charges- against at least 15 people involved in the storming of the Capitol yesterday.  Elsewhere, Boeing is going to pay a $2.5 billion fine over its attempt to cover up the issues of the 737 Boeing Max airliner that suffered two major crashes.   Meanwhile, Michelle Obama urges social media to ban Donald Trump permanently; she also lambastes his supporters using all manner of vile and hateful language.  Thank you, former Madam First Lady.
  76. 2021 Thursday L: Iraq’s Supreme Judicial Council has issued an arrest warrant for President Donald J. Trump following a year-long investigation into the whacking of Quds Force General Qassim Soleimani at the Baghdad airport last year via drone strike.  The charges of murder could bring about the death penalty.  Iran has issued an Interpol ‘red notice’ for President Trump and 47 of his top officials.  Interpol waved off this request before but now with Trump on the outs, one just never knows.   Meanwhile, CNN (a bogus source) reports that President Trump encouraged Vice President Mike Pence to ‘engineer a coup on his behalf’ and then when the mob of Antifa and BLM thugs, he did ‘little to nothing to make sure the VP and his attendant family members were secure from the violent left-wing mob.’  Wow.  We expect history will be revised and that between the 44th and 46th presidents there will be a GAP- NO 45th president.  The victors typically write the history… Finally, after a ‘pro-Trump mob’ surrounded the Georgia State Capitol Building, law enforcement had to escort a terrified Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger out of the facility and into his car.  It just gets better.
  77. 2021 Thursday M: Acting U.S. Attorney for D.C. Michael Sherwin says, ‘it’s possible that charges may be brought against the 45th president once he leaves office,’ citing his ‘language’ and ‘coarse gesticulations’ that spurred on a crowd of his ‘supporters’ to rush to the Capitol Building and storm into it.  IF you watched the president’s speech to his supporters, you know he did no such thing and had not social median not immediately taken down his tweets in which, he begged for peace, you know he did none of what the liberals are accusing him of doing.   Later in the day, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos offered her resignation over the events of the previous day.  Meanwhile, Senator Kelly Loeffler concedes to the Reverend Raphael Warnock putting both U.S. Senate seats in the Peach State into the hands of the Democrats, thus cementing Senator Chuck Schumer’s position as the BIG CHEESE in the U.S. Senate.
  78. 2022 Friday: Stick around, folks…

They scream and yell like a bunch of howling banshees, but it is what it is- either you are with us, or you are against us and General Soleimani was a POS who needed to die.

Oh, I hate believing this, but I must call it the way I see it- this election will be worse than the last…

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 38,237 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in ELEVEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 347 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.   Democrats like ET and me won’t be voting for any Democrats anytime soon.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album delivered by Fairport Convention was a ‘blast from the past,’ culled by an archivist: “Cropredy 2002” (08-28-2003), an album of live music from the band’s Cropredy 2002 show.  The band included virtuoso Maartin Allcock (guitars, mandolins, and the bouzouki), Ric Sanders (violins), Dave Pegg (acoustic and electric basses, and tenor mandola), Simon Nichol (guitars), Dave Mattacks (keyboards, drums, and percussion), and everyone else who ever played with the band or on various solo projects who was still drawing breath.  It is amazing- and extremely enjoyable- to envision each of these performances with your mind and ears.  We love it, we know you will love it, too, and you can find it at almost every site specializing in classic rock/folk rock music such as Amazon, Discogs, AllMusic, eBay, you name it, it’s available.  We hope you do check it out as we believe you will love this band as much as we do.  Enjoy.

  46. 2016 Tuesday:  As the United States prepares to speed up arms shipments to Syrian rebels, Russia launches another protest against the Obama-led United States, soon to be the Trump-led United States.  Speaking of U.S. arms sales, the United States comes in with the title of biggest arms merchant in the world with sales totaling more than $40 billion.   Meanwhile, during a visit to Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe expresses ‘regret’ for the 1941 strike by his country on the naval and air base.
  47. 2017 Wednesday:  In Kabul, Afghanistan, the so-called ‘religion of peace’- Islam- strikes again: ISIS carries out a suicide bombing that kills at least 40 people and wounds countless others.  Thank you, so nice.  Elsewhere, Judge Roy Moore sues to stop Alabama from certifying the recent U.S. Senate race that will confirm Democrat Doug Jones won it.  We don’t think he did.
  48. 2018 Thursday: Richard Overton, the nation’s oldest living World War II veteran who was also believed to be the oldest living man in the U.S., died in Texas at the age of 112.   Meanwhile, Fake News Media continues lamenting how the ‘government shutdown’ may continue into the New Year.  The only reason it’s going in the first place is because Democrats won’t fund the southern border wall, a wall that will STOP open borders.  Democrats wise the f**k up, we don’t want to be overrun by swarms of illegal aliens.
  49. 2019 Friday: While enfeebled House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi continues holding the articles of impeachment lodged against President Donald J. Trump but not carried over to the Senate as the law states they must, experts continue debating whether ‘Trump is actually impeached’ of he is not.  Pelosi says, ‘he is and will forever be’ but others say, ‘no, he’s not, not until the declining speaker carries them over to the upper chamber and presents them to the Senate majority leader.’   Meanwhile, the Federal Reserve claims that ‘Trump’s economic war with communist China has backfired.’  They don’t like the tariffs. 
  50. 2020 Sunday: Republican Congressman-elect Andrew Clyde of Georgia’s 9th congressional district wants to eliminate ALL firearms background checks as a means of protecting the 2nd Amendment from liberal dismantlement.  Meanwhile, New York state Democrats urge the uppity Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez NOT to primary Senate Minority Leader Chuckie Schumer when he comes up for re-election.  We hope she does as it will be the end of her political career.   
  51. 2020 Sunday A: The Georgia Bureau of Investigation and election investigators are running another audit of election signatures.  Speaking of fraudulent elections, President Donald J. Trump calls out the Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel, Democrat, for resisting calls for an investigation into the rampant voter fraud and corruption that occurred across the state in the hours and days after Election Day November 3, 2020.  Meanwhile, in Rockford, Illinois, cops are on a manhunt after last night’s fatal shootings at the Don Carter Lanes bowling alley in which three people died and another three were wounded.   Elsewhere, after another thug fires into a crowd in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, two people died and several others were injured.  Cops there are seeking the 37-year-old shooter.
  52. 2020 Sunday B: In Nashville, federal, state, and local cops are closing in on the perp behind the RV bomb explosion in downtown that damaged 41 buildings- a revised figure from the original 20- and searched the home of a suspect, a computer tech specialist named Anthony Quinn Warner. 
  53. 2020 Sunday C: We learned of, yet another outrage committed by Nancy Pelosi’s nephew, Governor Gavin Newsom of California.  Californians voted to increase gas taxes two election cycles ago so the state’s crumbling roads systems could be repaired.  The promise to the voters was that the tax revenues would go directly to the road repairs but oh, no, with the stroke of a pen on an executive order, Gavin Newsom redirected the $5 billion the road improvement law raised into fighting GLOBAL WARMING as well as funding the defunct high-speed rail system (and we also think into CalPERS, the state’s penniless state employees retirement fund).  Anyone living in California MUST SIGN the recall petition.  This POS must go.
  54. 2020 Sunday D: On the healthcare front, we learn that 1.56 billion PPE masks will find their way into the Pacific and Indian Oceans this year because Asians could give a flying f**k about polluting the world’s oceans.  Meanwhile, as fears increase over the new strain of the Chi-Vi discovered in Great Britain, California health officials now are testing for the B1.1.7 strain of the Chi-Com Virus.  Speaking of this foul lab-engineered disease, a New York state healthcare network is under investigation for unauthorized distribution of the Wuhan Virus vaccine.   Elsewhere, Japan shuts down air travel other than for its citizens returning home over fears of the B1.1.7 Xi Jinping Bat Flu strain.   Finally, three European nations- Germany, Hungary, and Slovakia administer the first China Virus vaccinations in Europe to citizens over the age of 80.
  55. 2020 Sunday E: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Yellow Bat Flu- the -disease the Chi-Coms manufactured in their Wuhan biowarfare lab and their allies, the Democratic Party- used to throw the election to “Pro-China Joe” Biden, aka “Chi-Com Joe”:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 80,671,407 confirmed cases, +505,047, 1,762,630, confirmed deaths, +7,868, and 45,612,622 confirmed recoveries, +362,356.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 19,262,641 confirmed cases, up 227,422 from yesterday’s reporting, 336,458 confirmed deaths, UP 1,819, and 8,412,707 confirmed recoveries, UP 97,410.
  56. 2020 Sunday F: 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: 2,144,430 confirmed cases, 24,231 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 20,970 confirmed cases, 285 confirmed deaths, and no longer any mention of confirmed recoveries at this point.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 240,763 confirmed cases, 3,283 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: New Jersey- currently, they have 463,166 confirmed cases, 18,630 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo is living there: 401,470 confirmed cases, 3,226 confirmed deaths, and 364,012 confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of Israel, anti-Benjamin Netanyahu protesters are in the streets of the country demanding he step down from office.
  57. 2020 Sunday G: White House economic adviser Stephen Moore says that ‘tax cuts for businesses should be included in the COVID-19 relief bill,’ which would help all of them get back on their feet sooner as would the authoritarian governors allowing everyone to return to work instead of persecuting people who want to open their businesses or return to work.    Regarding the economy, U.S. retail sales have risen by 3-percent over the course of the holidays meaning big box stores and online businesses are cleaning up while smaller businesses are dying.
  58. 2020 Sunday H: Here are today’s NFL games: (5) Chicago Bears, 41 (8-7) @ Jacksonville Jaguars, 17 (1-14) Sunday 10:00 A.M.  (6) Atlanta Falcons, 14 (4-11) @ Kansas City Chiefs, 17 (14-1) 10:00 A.M.  (7) Indianapolis Colts, 24 (10-5) @ Pittsburgh Steelers, 28 (12-3) 10:00 A.M.  (8) Cleveland Browns, 16 (10-5) @ New York Jets, 23 (2-13) 10:00 A.M.  (9) Cincinnati Bengals, 37 (4-10-1) @ Houston Texans, 31 (4-11) 10:00 A.M.  (10) New York Giants, 13 (5-10) @ Baltimore Ravens, 27 (10-5) 10:00 A.M.  (11) Denver Broncos, 16 (5-10) @ Los Angeles Chargers, 19 (6-9) 1:05 P.M.  (12) Carolina Panthers, 20 (5-10) @ Washington Redskins, 13 (6-9) 1:05 P.M. (13) Philadelphia Eagles, 17 (4-10-1) @ Dallas Cowboys, 37 (6-9) 1:25 P.M.  (14) Los Angeles Rams, 9 (9-6) @ Seattle Seahawks, 20 (11-4) 1:25 P.M.  (15) Tennessee Titans, 14 (10-5) @ Green Bay Packers, 40 (12-3) 5:20 P.M.  Tomorrow night’s Monday Night Football Game: (16) Buffalo Bills (11-3) @ New England Patriots (6-8) 5:15 P.M.
  59. 2020 Sunday I: Here is where we were one year ago today: Wow, another week comes to an end and the Chi-Coms and their allies in Iran (s-hole country), Russia (another s-hole country), Canada (a real s-hole country), and Cuba, Venezuela, and other s-hole countries NEVER sleep nor do their Democratic Party allies in the U.S.  We will keep you posted- you stick around and find out WTF they’re doing…
  60. 2021 Monday: You have me for the end of the year so let’s have some fun…good, clean Christian fun and none of this overeating, over-drinking, which seems to afflict so many of us.  Our country needs God right now and everyone must beg Him to enter their lives so we can push back on these godless communists.  Join me throughout the rest of this week- Chef Bea.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

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!

Here are the COVID-19 numbers- the REAL NUMBERS as presented by the COVID-19 World Meter, and they aren’t good…

b. I’ve heard it said that the Biden regime and Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci are in a panic because the omicron variant proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that the COVID-19 vaccines- the ones they are forcing down our throats- DON’T WORK- which is why people are abandoning the regime as are other elected Democrats. It’s all been for naught except for elected leaders and regime apparatchiks to steal vast pools of taxpayer monies and campaign kickbacks. Time to clean house.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 431,825 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 28,503 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths.  Joe has done this in, uh, 360 days.  Congratulations, Joe!  You said you would combat COVID-19 and it appears that COVID has conquered you.  YOU.  Loser.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album delivered by Fairport Convention was yet another ‘blast from the past,’ culled by band member, Dave Pegg: “The Airing Cupboard Tapes 71-74” (08-16-2002), an album of live music from 1990.  The lineups feature Sandy Denny (vocals, guitar), Richard Thompson (lead guitars), Simon Nichol (guitars, vocals), Dave Pegg (basses, mandolins, vocals), Dave Swarbrick (fiddle, mandolins, vocals, and viola), and Dave Mattacks (drums and percussion).  It is amazing- and extremely enjoyable- to envision each of these performances with your mind and ears.  We love it, we know you will love it, too, and you can find it at almost every site specializing in classic rock/folk rock music such as Amazon, Discogs, AllMusic, eBay, you name it, it’s available.  We hope you do check it out as we believe you will love this band as much as we do.  Enjoy.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

We’ve got illegal alien numbers for you today, i.e., future Democrat voters…

b. Democrats have always been the party of racism, bigotry, and slavery. The illegal aliens pouring into the country now will be nothing more than their slaves, low wage slaves who will live and toil in misery while Democrats and RINO sycophants grow fat and wealthy.

  57. 2012 Wednesday A: In Arlington, Virginia, former Acting U.S. Attorney General Robert Bork died at age 85.  A Republican, he served under President Richard M. Nixon from October 20, 1973, to January 04, 1974.  He also was a U.S. Supreme Court nominee at one time until POS Senator Teddy Kennedy, DS-MA, shot him down.
  58. 2013 Thursday: In an interview with journalist Barbara Walters, Hillary Clinton[x] informs the world that she is ‘unsure’ as to whether she will run for the presidency of the United States in 2016.  Meanwhile, a data breach at Target Corporation compromised the security of 40 million credit and debit cards used at Target stores.
  59. 2014 Friday:  Following a data breach in October, Staples, Inc. announces that up to 1.16 million credit card identities may have been compromised and that it will offer free credit protection to the victims at the stores from which, their accounts suffered hacking.  In doing so, they advise all customers to monitor their credit accounts closely.
  60. 2015 Saturday: In southeastern Turkey near the borders with Iraq and Syria, the government says four days of heavy fighting against Kurdish PKK militants resulted in the loss of two Turkish soldiers and 69 Kurds.  Meanwhile, Al-Shabab in Mogadishu, Somalia, sets off a car bomb in a crowded marketplace killing at least three people and wounding at least another eight.  Ah, the ‘religion of peace.’
  61. 2016 Monday: In Berlin, Germany, a Muslim jihadist drives a truck through a Christmas market killing at least 12 and injuring another 48 people enjoying the holiday season.  Police apprehended the assailant, a Pakistani ‘refugee’ named Naved Baluch who denies all involvement in the heinous crime.  Shoot the POS.  Meanwhile, at an art exhibit in Ankara, Turkey, a jihadist assassinates the Russian ambassador, Andrey Karlov.  Police caught the gunman and took him into custody.
  62. 2017 Tuesday: The U.S. Senate approves a $1.5 trillion tax bill the Democrats screech, and wail is going to the wealthiest Americans.  Look, the wealthiest Americans are the job creators, so STFU liberal, left-wing losers!   Meanwhile, in communist China, Beijing condemns and executes 10 accused drug smugglers and dealers yet the amount of fentanyl flowing into the U.S. from the Chi-Coms won’t end.  What is up with that?
  63. 2018 Wednesday: Outgoing House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-WI, bids Congress a tearful farewell, lamenting the ‘broken politics’ afflicting the country.   Meanwhile, we learn in Illinois, the Catholic Church would not release the names of more than 500 pedophile priests.  Ye, gods!  Elsewhere, President Trump declares victory over ISIS and announces the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Syria.
  64. 2019 Thursday: Senile House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi overplays her hand yet again by making it official- she won’t walk the two articles of impeachment against President Donald J. Trump to the U.S. Senate until the GOP-controlled upper house promises a ‘fair and just proceeding,’ meaning a guarantee to do whatever the Democrats demand of them.  Not going to happen.  This battle will carry over to the New Year as House lawmakers are already heading home for a two-week Christmas break.  Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, California, at Loyola Marymount College, seven Democrat hopefuls are going to debate tonight.
  65. 2020 Saturday: We have two NFL games this Saturday afternoon but first, a recap on Thursday Night Football’s matchup: (1) Los Angeles Chargers, 30 (5-9) @ Las Vegas Raiders, 27 (8-6) Thursday Night 5:30 P.M. Here are today’s matchups: (2) Buffalo Bills, 48 (11-3) @ Denver Broncos, 19 (5-9) Saturday 1:30 P.M.  Next: (3) Carolina Panthers, 16 (4-10) @ Green Bay Packers, 24 (11-3) Saturday 5:15 P.M.
  66. 2020 Saturday A: The Michigan House of Representatives votes to repeal the Emergency Powers Act they mistakenly bestowed on fascist Governor Gretchen Whitmer, Democrat, an act she used to punish individuals and businesses across the state.  Recall this horrible woman.  Meanwhile, Minnesota prepares to call out the National Guard when the trial of the four police officers charged with the death of George Floyd begins. 
  67. 2020 Saturday B: We now learn that the suspected Russian hack of the U.S. began as far back as March before anyone noticed anything or reported it.  Here are the government departments or entities affected by the Russian FSB thugs: (1) U.S. Treasury Dept. (2) U.S. Commerce Dept. (3) National Institute of Health (4) CISA (5) Dept. of Homeland Security (6) U.S. State Dept. (7) Pentagon- the (8) Office of POTUS (9) NASA (10) Natl. Nuclear Security Administration (11) U.S. Energy Dept. and (12) three U.S. states.  Members of government are calling this an ‘act of war.’  We tend to agree; however, we believe the Russians, the Chi-Coms, the Iranians, and other human garbage around the world are acting in concert and they also hacked the U.S. Presidential Election to sow as much discord and confusion as possible.  Because of this, the U.S. Dept. of State announces that it is going to close the last two U.S. consulates in Russia as U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says, ‘it’s pretty clear that Russia was behind the massive hack.’
  68. 2020 Saturday C: The U.S. Congress is holding a Saturday session on government funding. President Donald J. Trump signs a stopgap spending bill to keep government up and running.  Next, the U.S. Army rejects former national security adviser Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, U.S. Army Retired call for martial law to figure out what the hell happened in the presidential election.   Regarding the election, Franklin Graham says, ‘I tend to believe the election was rigged or stolen.’  Elsewhere, apelike thug and former director of the CIA (and former communist) John Brennan says the Durham report is ‘trolling’ and mocks outgoing Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr.  Have YOU looked in the mirror lately, Mr. Brennan?  You are a thug.   Speaking of Mr. Barr, he says ‘there was NO CIA misconduct in the Trump-Russian collusion probe.’
  69. 2020 Saturday D: In a humorous note, the Fake News Media is blubbering tears, criticizing the so-called ‘president-elect,’ “Pro-Chi-Com China Joe” Biden for closing access to them.  What the hell did you think you dumbasses?   Elsewhere, housing ‘experts’ want the eviction ban extended.  Good for them.  Regarding Chinese Virus-related problems, the GOP wants to bind Chi-Vi aid to limits on federal spending (there’s no money) which throws the outcome of the COVID-19 relief bill into doubt.  Allies of Chi-Com Joe Biden cry, “Foul!”  Speaking of the Wuhan Virus Crisis, the good old ‘Kung Flu,’ the Moderna vaccine has been cleared for emergency use in the United States which will spread the vaccine to greater numbers of people.   
  70. 2020 Saturday E: Questions continue to arise over WHY California Democratic Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell is still in the House of Representatives much less on the House Intelligence Committee when more evidence of him a five-year-plus sexual relationship with a Chi-Com honeypot having continues coming to light.  He must go.  NOW!  We also learn the Chi-Com ‘100-Year Plan’ is for them to bribe, buy, or blackmail everyone around the world who is in their way.  Time to start dropping some nukes, people!   U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says, “The Democrats are too cozy with the Chi-Coms.”  She’s right.
  71. 2020 Saturday F: Stick around for tonight’s Super Lotto Draw and the Powerball drawings.  First, here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3518 with a jackpot of $16 million at stake- 10, 15, 25, 31, 33, and Mega 21.  Out of 92.010 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $17,020 apiece.  One of the two winning tickets was sold at an ARCO AM/PM station in Newbury Park, CA, 91320 while the other was sold at a Mega Liquor in San Gabriel, CA, 91776.   Next, here are the numbers for tonight’s Powerball Draw #804 with a jackpot of $377 million at stake: 27, 32, 34, 43, 52, and Powerball 13.  Out of 101,071 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $52,972.
  72. 2020 Saturday G: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox, communist China’s gift to the world and a boon for Democrats who want to exercise their fascist skills in locking down people’s lives like California’s duplicitous closet pansy Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 76,126,125 confirmed cases, +1,617,691, 1,602,500, confirmed deaths, +11,762, and 42,963,631 confirmed recoveries (again, this number is less than reported a week ago), +361,393.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 17,629,293 confirmed cases, UP 177,126 from yesterday’s reporting, 317,534 confirmed deaths, UP 1,765, and 7,857,661 confirmed recoveries, UP 38,121.
  73. 2020 Saturday H: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 1,827,535 confirmed cases, 22,509 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 20,257 confirmed cases, 281 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 224,594 confirmed cases, 3,168 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state- Ohio. Currently, they have 614,429 confirmed cases, 8,031 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor DeWine.  Let’s look at Israel’s stats now that Mo is living there: 372,886 confirmed cases, 3,074 confirmed deaths, and 345,589 confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of the Mao Zedong fever, Maryland and Virginia donate doses of the vaccine to Washington, D.C.
  74. 2020 Saturday: Folks, even though it’s Saturday, everyone knows EVIL never sleeps so stay tuned for whatever shenanigans the Chi-Coms, their allies in Canada, Iran, Russia, Cuba, Venezuela, North Korea, and in the Democratic Party in the U.S. are up to today.  Everyone knows whatever it is, it’s going be GOOD!
  75. 2021 Sunday: Stick around for today’s NFL scores…

TODAY IN HISTORY, SUNDAY DECEMBER 19, 2021, BLOG POST #4,318

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

Saturday, December 19, 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…


Sunday, December 19, 2021:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We began promoting the music of this legendary British blues-rock band, Ten Years After, beginning on Tuesday, 01-March-2011 through Thursday, 24-March-2011.  We hope you will check them out because their music is as important today as it was 50 years ago.  Their performance at Woodstock in 1969 made them megastars.

[ii] We shared the music of the Lovin’ Spoonful with the readership beginning on Saturday, 14-September-2013 through Tuesday, 24-September-2013.  At the time, we made the oversight of not sharing the music of John B. Sebastian with the readership, so we do hope we come back around to promoting him sometime in the next 15 years or so.

[iii] Not sure when we present this Canadian rock band, Loverboy, but we sure as heck hope we do sometime within the next decade because- say what you will about them- they are as exciting today as they were back in the 1980s.  Please remain vigilant for the day that we do.

[iv] We began promoting the music of both Procol Harum and Robin Trower along with Gary Brooker beginning on Monday, 16-March-2015 through Sunday, 31-May-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your growing music collection.

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

[vi] 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. 

[vii] See previous footnote.  

[viii] In 2019, enfeebled House Speaker Nancy Pelosi continues misleading the public that what President Bill Clinton was in trouble for was his ‘affair’ with White House intern, Monica Lewinsky.  Although that was questionable, he was in trouble for lying in the Paula Jones case as well as for suborning lying under oath in same which inevitable cost him big bucks as well as the right to practice law in his home state of Arkansas for a year.  Speaker Pelosi, STOP LYING to the American people, tell the truth or step down from office and go back home to crime-ridden San Francisco.

[ix] This guy is more of a murderous thug than even his father was.  Still President Donald J. Trump has attempted to bring him and his rat-shit country into modern times.  We shall see.

[x] In 2019 at this point, we are not sure as to whether she will give it, yet another goes or will remain along the sidelines talking shit.

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!
