  62. 2009 Saturday: Costa Rica, Malaysia, and the Philippines find themselves in trouble today.  You ask why?  Well, the Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development blacklists them for being tax havens where the wealthy can hide their money.  What is wrong with that:  We all want to be able to do that… elsewhere, in North Waziristan, Pakistan, a U.S. drone strike whacks 13 jihadists convening with one another.  Yikes.

  69. 2016 Monday: Vietnam says, ‘enough is enough’ when it comes to Chi-Com intrusions into their fishing waters with their ‘fishing fleets’ which in reality, are military operations.  Vietnamese naval and marine assets board this ship and then take it under tow back to one of their ports.  Of course, Beijing starts making all manner of threats.  In the 78th NCAA Men’s National Basketball Championship, Villanova defeats North Carolina by a final score of 77-74.

Trump grasps the bull by the balls and sends the U.S. National Guard to aid struggling Customs and Border Patrol officers attempting to deal with one wave after another of illegal alien invaders.  Of course, the 45th president suffers all manner of criticism for attempting to halt Democrats AND RINO Republicans’ beloved illegal aliens.  Democrats want voters and RINOs like cheap labor.  We say, “Militarize the southern border with minefields, antivehicle, antipersonnel, anti-boat obstacles, a massive wall, artillery positions, and even seed the Rio Grande with alligator pups.  When the latter grow up, they will patrol the river…
  72. 2019 Thursday: The Church of Latter-Day Saints- aka the Mormon Church- promises to roll back anti-LGBTQIA+ policies which include not baptizing the children of gay parents.  Bowed to pressure, did you?  What a shame.  Meanwhile, the governor of Guam- Lourdes “Lou” Leon Guerrero, Democrat, signs a bill permitting for the recreational use of marijuana.  Elsewhere, in the aftermath of the Christchurch mosque massacres, both New Zealand and Australia pass laws prohibiting the posting of violent content online.  If such content is posted, it must be removed immediately, or the service providers must face the consequences.
  73. 2020 Saturday: The Wuhan Virus- straight out of Wuhan, China- continues claiming lives around the world and ruining much of the global economy.  Although Beijing continues to claim that things are ‘looking really great in China,’ everyone knows this is little more than propaganda put forth by their state-run media.  Shame on them.  Current figures for today are more than one million confirmed cases what with more than 64,000 confirmed deaths worldwide.  In the United States, there are 312,076 confirmed U.S. cases and 8,496 confirmed deaths.  When this crisis ends, the world will hold the communist government of China accountable and as Chef Goldie McNamara has said, President Donald J. Trump should demand a return to the Two-China Policy of recognizing the equality of Nationalist aka Free China as a separate entity from the People’s Republic of (Communist China).
  74. 2021 Sunday: WOKE NEWS– first, permit us to say this- it is time that people stand up and slap the WOKE pansies in the mouth and say, “Hell, no, we are not going to permit a bunch of wimpified losers such as yourselves to tell us what we can and cannot say.  Furthermore, IF you want to know where WOKE stupidity came from, it emanates from 1-2 generations of young people NEVER being told ‘NO,’ or given ‘participation trophies’ or even more importantly, a belt across their sniveling, cringing asses when they were growing up.  If ever one needed an example of what happens when you spare the rod and spoil the child, this is precisely what timidity in parenting gets one.’  Okay, top GOP lawmakers say that Major League Baseball should lose its antitrust exemption over pulling the MLB All-Star Game and MLB Draft out of Georgia[vii] over the recent enactment of new voting laws.  READ the law first before you run with the WOKE HERD.  Speaking of ‘WOKE,’ President Donald J. Trump says that all Americans should boycott any business or industry pushing this ignorant WOKE agenda.  God bless you, sir.  In other WOKE news, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, condemns Coca-Cola’s® opposition to the new election laws in the Peach State.  NO MORE Coca-Cola® for us, folks.  Speaking of President Donald J. Trump, he wishes ‘everyone an incredibly happy Easter, including all the left-wing crazies’ out there running amok.
  75. 2021 Sunday A: FOREIGN NEWS/OVERSEAS NEWS– Pakistan is struggling to stop its citizens from smuggling in oil from Iran.  Every now and then, someone makes a mistake and blows everyone sky high from tapping into pipelines or tanker trucks.  Next, the crown prince of Jordan is reportedly in home detention following the plotting of a coup against his half-brother King Abdullah.  Moving on, the final ships trapped in the Suez Canal are on their way to the high seas and freedom.   Finally, Indonesia is suffering from some serious natural disasters what with landslides after heavy rains carrying away homes, businesses, and even people.  Reportedly, at least 44 citizens are dead, numerous others missing, and thousands evacuated.  We’re with you!  Finally, recent Russian polls claim that ‘Vladimir Putin is the sexiest Russian male alive.’  Congrats, Comrade Vlad!

  78. 2021 Sunday D: 2020 STOLEN/FRAUDULENT PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION– as if we needed more proof that the 2020 Presidential Election was corrupt and stolen on behalf of drooling, enfeebled Joe Biden, Maricopa County officials in the Copper State WILL NOT permit Arizona investigators to recount the 2.1 million ballots by hand, a job estimated to take up to two months at 18 hours per day.  IF everything was on the up and up as Democrats claim it was, then help the investigators instead of trying to thwart them and cover up your tracks.
  79. 2021 Sunday E: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– After more than two months in office, doddering old slobbering old Joe Biden finally picks up the phone and calls (his partner in crime) Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.  Good for you, Joe, good for you, Joe.  Next Climate Czar, the hypocritical John F. Kerry is focusing on efforts to bring the United States and the Chi-Coms together on environmental issues.  This we would love to see…Next, after one of their own- Nation of Islam’s Noah Green- crashed into a barricade outside the U.S. Senate side of Constitution Avenue and killed one officer and injured another before being shot dead himself, Democrats on Capitol Hill are back to finding ways to secure Fort Pelosi.  Isn’t it amazing how stuff just ‘seems to occur’ that allows the Dems to rob the American people of their rights?  Elsewhere, Native Americans in Minnesota are on the warpath as they try to stop a Canadian energy project running through their state.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by Robbie Robertson was a ‘best of’ compilation for his most ardent fans, “Classic Masters,” an album that came out on August 13, 2002.  The album featured a collection of tunes culled from his first two solo albums upon leaving the Band, the group that gave him fame and fortune, the group that he would leave behind and move on from due to it rapidly spiraling out of control.  We mourn the loss of the Band just as we celebrated the others regrouping and trying to regain some steam.  We also love Robbie Robertson’s unique songwriting abilities, talent that gave us songs that 50 years later are as powerful and as poignant as they are today, especially when put up against crap from Maroon Five, Coldplay, and other Bozo bands that dupe younger fans into believing they are something of value.  Please, seek this album out, give it a good listen, and consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure- you will be glad you did.

  66. 2019 Sunday: The Catholic Church breathes a sigh of relief as an investigation into the U.S. Southern Baptist Church implicates 400 members with more than 700 victims.  Meanwhile, a study conducted around the world claims that insect populations worldwide are collapsing which could lead to a ‘catastrophic collapse of the world’s ecosystems,’ what with a 40% decline and a 30% on the endangered list.  Finally, Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar, Democrat, announces her presidential run.
  67. 2020 Monday: The great leader, Xi Jinping, slaps on a face mask and visits a hospital in Beijing visiting sick people.  He demands ‘more decisive measures’ to combat the virus he claims came out of the Wuhan wet market when in fact, it really came out of the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  At the time of this writing, we are unclear as to whether the growing pandemic was created with purpose in the lab or is yet another freak of nature disease to emanate in communist China and then infects the rest of the world.   Meanwhile, Beijing’s sock puppet, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus- the head of the World Health Organization- says that ‘foreign cases of COVID-19 could be the tip of the iceberg.’  What did YOU know and WHEN did YOU know it?
  68. 2021 Wednesday:  First, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, blasts the World Health Organization for doing what everyone expected it would do, namely, cover up for their masters in the Chinese Communist Party.  Dr. Tedros is a bought-and-paid-for, Third World ‘medical’ hack.  Speaking of which, a recent poll says that ‘one-third of Americans are skeptical of the Wuhan Virus vaccine.’  We sure the hell are.  Meanwhile, the FDA grants Eli Lilly the go ahead to begin using its combo Chi-Vi vaccine/antibody treatment in the war against the Chi-Com Virus running amok in the world.  Speaking of Chi-Coms, Connecticut police are investigating the shooting death of graduate student 26-year-old Kevin Jiang whose lifeless bullet-ridden corpse was discovered over the weekend.  
  69. 2021 Wednesday A: Elsewhere, Joe Biden’s plan to re-engage in the United Nations ‘Human Rights’ Commission is seen as little more than a hollow gesture by the fading-fast 46th president.  Meanwhile, Alabama has a bill pending that would prohibit hormone drug treatments for tranny kids.  We always say, send these kids to qualified psychiatrists so they can get their heads on straight instead of falling prey to liberal insanity.  Finally, the CDC endorses ‘double-masking’ (these people are obviously invested in companies manufacturing PPE); however, we recall when Dr. Tony Fauci said, ‘masks don’t work’ just as we recall him suggesting ‘everyone might have to wear goggles,’ just as we remember him telling an inquisitive reporter that it’s fine to meet people on Grindr and Tinder for casual sex hook-ups.  WTF, Dr. Fauci?
  70. 2021 Wednesday B: Stephen King is putting up $6.5 million to help young authors get published.  Next, former Colorado Republican Senator Cory Gardner is going to head a new GOP Super PAC with which to help the party win back the House and Senate in 2022 and beyond.   Meanwhile, Congressman Ed Buck calls out the Democrats for resisting a proposal with which ALL members of Congress would recite the Pledge of Allegiance before every panel meeting.  Of course, the Democrats won’t allow this being the Anti-American scumbags that they are.  Speaking of anti-Americanism, Joe Biden’s immigration policies (or lack of) are causing mayhem along the southern border as tens of thousands of illegal aliens try to storm into the country.  We encourage the disconnected president to begin laying in minefields to stop the invasion in its tracks.   Elsewhere, the U.S. Senate sets February 22-23 as the date for hearings for Joe Biden’s attorney general nominee, Merrick Garland.
  71. 2021 Wednesday C: NASA awards SpaceX a $332 million contract to build the infrastructure for a return to the lunar surface.  In other news, Fox News bozo Chris Wallace says, ‘the impeachment managers are really laying out a compelling case in the trial of former President Donald J. Trump.’  And you wonder why people NO longer watch Fox News.  Speaking of the ‘impeachment trial,’ the Dems are once again harnessing a major team of losers to prosecute the case against Donald Trump which is why we are supporting the National Republican Congressional Committee’s bid to beat 47 Democrats so as to reclaim the House in 2022.  Everyone knows Jaime Raskin is a moron as is Teddy Lieu, David Cicilline, and Joaquin Castro, among others.  Castro was babbling on about Trump’s claims of a ‘stolen election’ noting no Democrat would ever do that when we know defeated Anthony Brindisi in New York 22 was crying about Dominion Voting Systems fraud in his loss to Claudia Tenney.  Wah, wah, wah!
  72. 2021 Wednesday D: The CEO of Microsoft says that BIG TECH requires clearer laws as to what can and cannot be said online meaning ‘WHAT CAN WE CENSOR WITHOUT REPERCUSSIONS?’  Elsewhere, lowlife rocker Bruce Springsteen faces drunken driving charges in the Garden State.  Poor Bruce.  Elsewhere, right on time, a Georgia county launches a probe into President Donald J. Trump’s attempted election theft in the Peach State.  Wow.  Meanwhile, a judge denies Ghislaine Maxwell’s attorneys bid to keep an excerpt from a 2016 deposition sealed.   Next, officials in San Francisco and around the Bay Area are trying to figure out where a massive oil spill in the Bay originated.   Finally, people are shocked that Republican Senator Bill Cassidy of Louisiana voted with the Democrats and five other RINOs to move the impeachment trial against President Trump forward yesterday.  He’s a goner.  And Democrats should remember this: what goes around can come around and we expect to see Barack Hussein Obama impeached and his wife prevented from ever seeking office…
  73. 2021 Wednesday E: After Mark Cuban- owner of the NBA franchise the Dallas Mavericks- said that he would NO longer play the National Anthem prior to games in the country that made this scurrilous c**ksucker wealthy, the NBA said, “Yes you will.”  All teams will play the anthem before every game which is longstanding league policy.  Meanwhile, we learn that another leftwing POS- this one Kamala Harris- joked about killing both President Donald J. Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.  Newt Gingrich says the Democrats are making the case for Donald Trump in this exceedingly boring second impeachment which is good because people are growing angrier with these scumbag Democrats by the day. 
  74. 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: 107,166,785 confirmed cases, +523,266, 2,348,421, confirmed deaths, +17,582, and 59,908,386 confirmed recoveries, +358,991.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 27,485,502 confirmed cases, up 103,724 from yesterday’s reporting, 474,034 confirmed deaths, UP 3,374, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP- UNKNOWN- same number as the last two week’s number- WTF.  NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 144,639 CHI-VI DEATHS.  Joe, you said you had a plan- where the f**k is it?  In Beijing?  YOU are NOT our president, sir.
  75. 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: 3,441,427 confirmed cases, 44,995 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,531 confirmed cases, 418 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 327,397 confirmed cases, 4,635 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Arizona: currently, they have 789,245 confirmed cases, 14,462 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 703,719 confirmed cases, 5,216 confirmed deaths, and 628,004 confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other country, shall we?  Spain: 3,023,601 confirmed cases, 63,704 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.

  77. 2021 Wednesday I: Rush Limbaugh’s staffers encourage his hundreds of millions of fans across the world to pray for a remission of his cancer and for a swift recovery.  All of us are praying for your health, Rush.  God be with you.  Next, Donald Trump Jr. tells Newsmax TV that the ‘Dems are trying to scare ‘outsiders’ away from Washington, D.C., and politics.’  Moving on, Roger Stone told Newsmax that CNN’s latest report is ‘Russian Witch Hunt 2.0.’  Elsewhere, Michigan Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey, GOP, stands by his statement that the Capitol Hill Riots- in which Antifa and Black Lives Matter led the way with Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s blessings- allegedly- were a hoax to blame Trump supporters.  We know what he’s saying- it was pre-planned and pre-engineered so as to coincide with the President’s speech on January 6 from the White House.  Evidence continues pointing in this direction which is WHY the Dems screech louder that what Republicans say are ALL LIES!  When the truth comes out, we know exactly where it’s going to lead…
  78. 2021 Wednesday J: As the Democrats got the impeachment three-ring circus underway, most Republican senators were once again, indifferent and/or immune to all the blubbering, crying, sniveling, snot-dripping BS the Dems spent all day making tens of millions of Americans sick.  It is an embarrassing freak show what with Rhode Island Congressman David Cicilline talking about an “armed insurrection.’  Look, former Mafia mouthpiece, there were no weapons in the hands of the left-wing rioters.   Congressman Matt Gaetz, R-FL, said the “Dems’ tears are not enough to sway anyone.’  Good for you, congressman.  Elsewhere, the CDC announces that those who are completely vaccinated against the Beijing Bat Bug do not need to quarantine.  Next, Joe Biden’s budget deficit through January is a whopping $735.7 billion.   Finally, former ICE bigwig Tom Homan says that ‘Joe Biden has made the entire nation into one big sanctuary nation.’  We’re telling you; people are going to push back against this tidal wave of illegals.
  79. 2021 Wednesday K: The Chi-Coms have got a Chi-Com lander in the atmosphere on Mars.  In a couple of months, the Chi-Coms will attempt to get it to the surface of the Red Planet where we hope it will blow up- watch it take COVID-19 to Mars!  Will they blame it on the Americans?  Meanwhile, the United Arab Emirates have a similar robotic craft arriving on scene while the U.S. has another arriving soon.   Elsewhere, Joe Biden visited the Pentagon today to confer with Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin where they plotted strategy to save the planet from climate change, the Chi-Vi, and of course, RIGHT WING EXTREMISM.  Left-wing extremism, A-Okay.   Finally, the Biden administration has suspended indefinitely the ‘forced transfer’ of TikTok- the Chi-Com intelligence gathering social media ap to Walmart and Oracle in yet another tip-of-the-hat to Beijing.
  80. 2021 Wednesday L: Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3533 with a pot of $19 million on the line: 08, 10, 19, 22, 41, and Mega 15.  Out of 102,034 winning tickets, the highest winners were 11 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $1,668 apiece.  Here are the numbers for the Powerball Drawing #819 with a pot of $42 million on the line: 15, 39, 58, 63, 67, and Powerball 07.  Out of 56,277 winning tickets, ONE person had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $26,687.
  81. 2021 Wednesday M: Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds drops all COVID-19 restrictions leaving it up to her citizens to behave responsibly.  Next, in a clear sign that California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom is on the ropes became evident when enfeebled old ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden commented on the GREAT JOB this POS bum is doing.  Go, Joe, go!  Speaking of ‘Pro-China Joe’,  he says he is as determined as ever to get Julian Assange extradited to the United States so he can go on trial.  Also, since Joe Biden took the terrorist Houthi rebels off the terrorist watch list, the Houthis attack a Saudi airport using Iranian drones causing mayhem and destruction.  Next, New York state AG Leticia James is mad at the NRA for having declared bankruptcy so that it can relocate to Texas.  Oh, boohoo.  Finally, several state GOP attorneys general are joining together to go after Joe Biden and his war on domestic energy production, namely, his closure of the Keystone XL Pipeline.
  82. 2022 Thursday: Amigos, nos esforzamos por no dar rodeos, por lo que proclamamos que en este blog mundialmente conocido encontrarán “sólo los hechos” y la “verdad sin ambages”.  Quédate para ver los hechos del día…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

It is not like Fotheringay was around for a long time, yet, since Sandy Denny was in the guiding light behind the group, they recorded loads of music.  Sadly, Sandy died young and hubby Trevor Lucas followed a couple of decades later.  Still, record companies keep music stuffed away in the vaults so they decided, let’s combine everything together, add the unreleased material and boom-bam, we have a final (or so we might think) offering entitled, “Nothing More- the Collected Fotheringay,” which came out on March 27, 2015.  It is difficult to locate this collection but there’s always Discogs, AllMusic, eBay, and perhaps even overseas sites such as Amazon UK.  Seek it out and you will be glad you did should you locate it because Sandy had an angelic voice, and her songwriting skills were mesmerizing.  You will be glad you found this one if you do because it is delightful.

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

Thursday, February 10, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

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…


[i] We presented the music of the Flying Burrito Brothers beginning Sunday, 23-February-2014 and concluded our presentation on Thursday, 06-March-2014.

[ii] We began promoting the music of not only Traffic but also the Spencer Davis Group, Steve Winwood, Chris Wood, Jim Capaldi, and Dave Mason.  The presentation commenced on Monday, 30-November-2015 through Sunday, 20-March-2016.  This offering also included Blind Faith.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.

[iii] We will be presenting Elton John’s music at some point within the next five years.  Please stay tuned for the day when we do.

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

[v] Could it be that Obama set this government agency up so it could engineer the ‘Russia collusion scam’ less than a year later.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

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?

  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…


Thursday, January 13, 2022:

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…

  53. 2012 Thursday: In New York City, the former 57th U.S. Secretary of State Cyrus Vance, a Democrat, died.  He served under President Jimmy Carter / served from January 20, 1977, to April 28, 1980.  Elsewhere, Israel’s Supreme Court upholds a law that bans Palestinians who marry Israelis from attaining citizenship. 
  54. 2013 Saturday: Air pollution levels in Beijing rise to levels deemed hazardous to human life.  Seven years later, the Chinese give the world the coronavirus.  Thank you, China.  Elsewhere, after some wag flies the Union Jack above the Belfast City Hall, riots break out leading to the injury of at least 29 police officers.  Will these people ever learn?
  55. 2014 Sunday: At the 71st Golden Globe Awards, Best Motion Picture is awarded to “12 Years a Slave”; “American Hustle” receives the Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy award, with actress Amy Adams honored as Best Actress.  Elsewhere, officials announced that Iran had agreed to limit uranium enrichment (yeah, right, they are f**king liars) and to open its nuclear program to daily inspection by international experts (but NO Americans).  Meanwhile, in central Baghdad, ISIS thugs carry out an attack on a bus station killing at least 9 people and wounding numerous others.
  56. 2015 Monday: Divers have retrieved one of two black boxes from Air Asia Flight 8501, which crashed on December 28 during its flight from Indonesia to Singapore; searchers discovered the second black box nearby, but said that ‘in order to access it,’ they would first have to remove a large pile of debris.  Elsewhere, the African nation of Cameroon kills 143 Boko Haram combatants in a series of clashes.  Meanwhile, ISIS is suspected of hacking into the computers of U.S. Central Command, YouTube, and Twitter, according to Reuters.
  57. 2016 Tuesday: ISIS bombers strike in downtown Istanbul carrying out a suicide bombing that slays 10 people and wounds another 15, mostly German tourists visiting the country.   The bomber is reputed to have been a Syrian member of the jihadist group.  Meanwhile, the U.N. War Crimes Commission is trying to investigate ‘war crimes’ committed by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s troops on the town of Madaya in the western portion of the country.  Syrian government forces have been besieging the city for several months and have prohibited aid convoys from reaching the city.  C’ est la vie.  Finally, Kuwait sentences two people to death for spying for the Iranians and Hezbollah.
  58. 2017 Thursday: In a surprise that shocked the world, President Barack Obama awards his number two, Vice President Joseph R. Biden with the Presidential Medal of Freedom.  Congratulations, Joe!  He also ends the ‘wet feet, dry feet’ policy regarding Cubans who make it to our shores and receive citizenship.  He is trying to patch relations with the communists in Havana.  Elsewhere, the NFL franchise San Diego Chargers announces it is going to relocate the team to Los Angeles.
  59. 2018 Friday: President Donald J. Trump’s White House physician, Dr. Ronny Jackson, declared him in “excellent health” after the president received his first checkup at Walter Reed military hospital.  Elsewhere, following the U.S. State Department cautioning U.S. citizens from traveling to Turkey due to arbitrary arrests and extended detentions over nothing, Turkey tells its citizens NOT to visit the United States.  Turkey used to be a decent country whereas now, they are a junior member of the Axis of Evil.
  60. 2019 Saturday: In the AFC Division Game, the Kansas City Chiefs blow out the Indianapolis Colts 31-13 to move to the AFC Championship Game while in the NFC Division Game, the Los Angeles Rams hold off the Dallas Cowboys 30-22.  Elsewhere, the federal government shutdown enters its 22nd day, becoming the longest shutdown of the government in U.S. history.  Of course, President Donald J. 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.
  72. 2021 Tuesday K: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 2,785,701 confirmed cases, 30,561 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: 281,210 confirmed cases, 3,793 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Connecticut: currently, they have 217,047 confirmed cases, 6,449 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 501,073 confirmed cases, 3,704 confirmed deaths, and 425,006 confirmed recoveries. 
  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. Trump and Joseph R. Biden from today until January 20, 2021.
  76. 2021 Tuesday O: Stick around for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1624: 12, 14, 26, 28, 33, and Mega 09.  Out of 527,357 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $926,572.  The winning ticket was sold at La Paz Liquor in Burbank, CA, 91505.

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.

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.

  59. 2020 Monday: At the Golden Globes, actress Michelle Williams celebrates her abortion before a likeminded crowd of liberal losers and activists.  What the hell is up with the Pro-Death movement?  Killing the unborn is the most sadistic, evil thing one can do.  Yet, these pro-Satanists celebrate it like they’re killing cockroaches.  Shame.  Meanwhile, U.S. Senator Kelly Loeffler enters the world’s greatest deliberative body on today’s date representing the Peach State.  Elsewhere, ever-disloyal John Bolton says, ‘I’m willing to testify at President Donald J. Trump’s impeachment trial.’  Perfect example of a Deep State apparatchik.   
  60. 2021 Wednesday: Millions of patriots arrived in the nation’s capital today to support President Trump.  The president spoke to them and rallied the crowd.  Then, the certification of the 2020 Presidential Election began today.  Disputes arose early over the first state in question- Arizona- which sent both chambers of Congress to debate the election fraud.  Of course, the RINOs and their Democratic Party taskmasters say, ‘NO election fraud occurred’ while the country understands that ‘yes, indeed, loads of fraud did occur and needs to be addressed.’  Even California’s 55 electoral votes are being called into question due to millions of illegal aliens voting.  Finally, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, called for an ‘emergency 10-day audit of the election’ saying BOTH parties should welcome such an audit, so their voters accept the election results.
  61. 2021 Wednesday A: Next, as the chambers were debating Arizona’s election results, the crowd marched to the Capitol Building.  Then, a segment of the crowd erupted into violence and stormed the building itself sending lawmakers and their staffs into the basement for security.  We heard of gunshots having occurred inside.  Folks, it is clear that the LEFT is pulling out ALL stops here and have infiltrated the peaceful protesters with Antifa and Black Lives Matter human refuse.  People screaming, “TRUMP WON,” and other things favorable to the president to give the impression it’s his people doing the rioting.  This is straight out of Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” and it’s clear that the Democrats are behind all of this so they can continue the narrative that ‘President Trump is launching a coup.’  What a flipping mess but you must give the Democratic-Socialists credit as they know how to cause mob violence, misdirect blame, and topple elections.  Our country is in trouble.
  62. 2021 Wednesday B: It appears that BOTH Democrats won the Senate races in Georgia: Reverend Raphael Warnock with a count of 2,230,231 (51%) to 2,176,048 (49%) for Senator Kelly Loeffler.  As for Jon Ossoff, numbers show 2,211,603 (50%) votes to 2,194,578 (50%) for Senator David Perdue.  Of course, counting continues but we know the score.   Meanwhile, Georgia Democrat Congressman Vernon Jones says he is going to leave the Dems and become a Republican.
  63. 2021 Wednesday C: Facebook is ordered to pay nearly $5 million in fines for having stolen an Italian app.  Next, Samsung’s profits for the fourth quarter are expected to rise by one-third.  Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms arrest 50-plus pro-democracy activists in Hong Kong following the recent passage of their criminal national security law.  Meanwhile, Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts says workers at meat processing plants will be the next in line to receive the vaccine for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Finally, a UK judge denies WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange bail.    
  64. 2021 Wednesday D: Stick around for the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3523 with a $9 million jackpot up for grabs and the Powerball Draw #809 with a $410 million jackpot up for grabs.   First, here are the results for the Super Lotto drawing: 04, 29, 33, 34, 44, and Mega 21.  The highest winners were 13 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $1,448 apiece.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball drawing: 01, 20, 22, 60, 66, and Powerball 03.  the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $29,944 apiece.

  67. 2021 Wednesday G:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,829.40, UP 437.80 points (+1.44%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,740.79, DOWN 78.17 points (-0.61%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,748.14, UP 21.28 points (+0.57%).  The price of GOLD is $1,924.90 per troy oz., +16.30 (+0.85%) while the price of SILVER is $27.40 per troy ounce, +0.353 (+1.31%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,113.70 per troy oz, +3.50 (+0.32%) while the price of COPPER is $3.66 per pound, +0.0125 (+0.34%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,448.10 per troy oz, -45.30 (-1.82%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $50.51 per barrel, -0.12 (-0.24%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.81 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.67.

  70. 2021 Wednesday: Today is the day when we believe all hell is going to break loose in Washington, D.C., as the Electoral College results are certified or not.  Let us hope brave politicians of both parties will fight to keep America free and independent and not a satellite state of the fricking Chi-Coms.
  71. 2022 Thursday: Everyone, join us later in the day for updates!

  70. 2019 Thursday:  U.S. Senators Kyrsten Sinema, D-AZ, and Martha McSally, R-AZ, entered the U.S. Senate on this date as did Senator Mike Braun, R-IN.  Also entering the Senate today was Joni Ernst, R-IA, Josh Hawley, R-Mo., Jacky Rosen, D-NV., Kevin Cramer, R-ND, Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, and Mitt Romney, RINO Republican from Utah.   The 116th Congress takes their oaths of office and Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi reclaims her speakership although there were rumors the old gal might face some challengers.  The Dems also form a climate committee as well as enact new ethics rules for all members.   
  71. 2020 Friday: Following the take-out of Iranian thug General Qassim Soleimani outside the Baghdad airport yesterday, the Iraqi government in a state of shock begins mulling its relationship with the United States.  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.  Of course, the Democrats are worried that Iran will go to war against us.  Enough with the tears already.  The man needed to die.  Many liberals predict that killing the Iranian terrorist mastermind will lead to greater Middle East chaos; they will be proven wrong.
  72. 2021 Sunday:  U.S. Senator Tommy Tuberville, R-AL, enters the Senate today while the man he beat on November 03, 2020- Democrat Doug Jones- leaves.  U.S. Senator John Hickenlooper, D-CO, enters the Senate today as Republican Senator Cory Gardner exits.  Likewise, Senator Roger Marshall, R-KS, replaces outgoing Senator Pat Roberts and Ben Ray Luján, D-NM, replaces outgoing Tom Udall.   Senator Lamar Alexander, R-TN, leaves office today as his counterpart, Senator Bill Hagerty replaces him while Senator Mike Enzi leaves office being replaced by Republican Cynthia Lummis.
  73. 2021 Sunday A: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 85,083,463 confirmed cases, +565,479, 1,842,455, confirmed deaths, +7,869, and 47,810,565 confirmed recoveries, +261,813.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 20,782,996 confirmed cases, up 186,736 from yesterday’s reporting, 354,650 confirmed deaths, UP 1,341, and 9,312,768 confirmed recoveries, UP 89,207.
  74. 2021 Sunday 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: 2,398,669 confirmed cases, 26,544 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 21,956 confirmed cases, 289 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 255,396 confirmed cases, 3,524 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: South Carolina: currently, they have 321,669 confirmed cases, 5,469 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 438,869 confirmed cases, 3,417 confirmed deaths, and 381,902 confirmed recoveries.  In the United Kingdom, Prime Minister Boris Johnson- ‘Bojo” to his friends- says he expects to have tens of millions of doses of the Astra-Zeneca Chi-Vi vaccine in the next few weeks.
  75. 2021 Sunday C: The 117th Congress takes its oaths today and somehow- incredibly- Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi manages to retain the speakership.  Good.  We like her because she is good for the GOP.  This is supposed to be her last term- so she says- and then it’s off to retirement.  Where?  In communist China?   Speaking of the Chi-Coms, their foreign minister says he thinks the U.S. and the PRC can work on bilateral issues together like what?  The overthrow of the United States and the domination of the world?  Meanwhile, the Japanese announce they may declare another national emergency what with the ongoing rise in cases of the Chi-Vi.   Speaking of Japan, the oldest woman in the world turns 118 years-old today.  Congratulations.
  76. 2021 Sunday D: In Virginia, law enforcement apprehends the POS who shot three people at a Wal-Mart while trying to avoid capture for shoplifting.  Elsewhere, in Michigan, a private plane crashes into a home killing 3 people.  Meanwhile, the FBI announces they are investigating the online search history and emails of dead Nashville bomber Anthony Quinn Warner seeking information as to why the scumbag did what he did.  Speaking of crime, homicides rose by 21-percent across the United States thanks to the ‘summer of violence’ funded by the Chi-Coms in our country.  Payback is coming by way of Hong Kong…

Sunday, January 03, 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] We promoted the music of Buffalo Springfield beginning on Saturday, 17-November-2012 through Saturday, 24-November-2012.  We hope you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your collection.  You will be glad you did.

[ii] We hope to promote the music of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, as well as of each member’s solo careers along with Crazy Horse within the next 5-7 years.  Please remain vigilant for when we do.

[iii] We presented another series of interconnected bands which included Free, Bad Company, Led Zeppelin, the Firm, Mott the Hoople, Ian Hunter, the Yardbirds, and a plethora of solo and group efforts beginning on Wednesday, 02-July-2014 through Sunday, 19-October-2014.  We definitely hope that you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your growing collection.

[iv] 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.

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!

Expect the numbers of COVID-19 cases to skyrocket tomorrow

b. My family and I have grown suspicious at the reporting of COVID-19 numbers. I used to believe some of my colleagues were conspiracy theorists but now that COVID-19 numbers are going up and an election year is upon us, I can see the Machiavellian schemes circulating just behind the drapes. Oh, I hate believing this, but I must call it the way I see it- this election will be worse than the last…

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 314

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

002. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, JANUARY 02, 2022, UPDATE A:

Expect the numbers of COVID-19 cases to skyrocket tomorrow

  1. 2021 Sunday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole: 290,640,023 confirmed cases, +926,209, 5,460,449 confirmed deaths, +3,119 and 254,545,924 confirmed recoveries, +384,615.

We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ii]    
  2. 2021 Sunday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 441,559 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 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.        
  3. 2021 Sunday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 5,411,919 confirmed cases, 76,742 confirmed deaths, and 5,335,177 confirmed recoveries (since California won’t report recoveries anymore, we are doing it).  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 4,213,301 confirmed cases, 62,480 confirmed deaths, and 3,633,533 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 118,820 confirmed cases, 1,094 confirmed deaths, and 117,726 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 853,403 confirmed cases, 9,908 confirmed deaths, and 337,643 confirmed recoveries (every weekend, it’s the same story with this Third World, Marxist state- they close up shop and stop presenting COVID-19 statistics.  Chef Vladimir says it truly sucks).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Guam: they have 19,618 confirmed cases, 270 confirmed deaths, and 18,972 confirmed recoveries.[iii]   
  4. 2021 Sunday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day- Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 1,395,120 confirmed cases, 8,244 confirmed deaths, and 1,352,967 confirmed recoveries (somewhat the same numbers).   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Mozambique, 101st country on the list: 192,453 cases of the virus, 2,019 confirmed death and 157,184 confirmed recoveries.[iv]     
  5. 2021 Sunday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 36,338.30, DOWN 59.78 points (-0.16%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 15,644.97 DOWN 96.59 points (-0.61%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,766.18, DOWN 12.55 points (-0.26%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $75.45 per barrel, -1.54 (-2.00%).  The price of GOLD is $1,830.50 per troy oz., +16.40 (+0.90%) while the price of SILVER is $23.36 per troy ounce, +0.30 (+1.28%).  The price of PLATINUM is $965.80 per troy oz, +1.20 (+0.12%) while the price of COPPER is $4.46 per pound, +0.07 (+1.54%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $1,895.56 per troy oz., -69.83 (-3.55%). The price of RHODIUM is $14,100.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,110,000.00 per CNY/T, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $2,795.00 per USD/T, -23.00 (-0.82%).[vi]  The price of LUMBER is $1,145.00 USD 1,000 board feet -12.70 (-1.10%).    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000021.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.35 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.88 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.53.    In Jordanian Dinar, one greenback equals 0.71 and in Kazakhstani Tenge, a buck equal 434.83 and in Kenyan Schilling, one dollar equals 113.10 of theirs.[vii]        
  6. 2021 Sunday 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 $4.660 per gallon, $3.213 in Florida, $4.326 in Hawaii, and $3.879 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Indiana- $3.044.  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 86th HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- Brazil: $4.458 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $29,491,315,446,266 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 Norway the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Thailand with $80,000,000,000 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.

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.

  45. 2015 Sunday: Iraqi military forces kill or drive out ISIS thugs from the city of Ramadi after heavy fighting.  The jihadist group captured the city in May and the Iraqis aided by U.S. advisers and air power cleaned the clocks of the scum who terrorized the city for months.  Elsewhere, after the Chicago Police Department kills two black Americans, people take to the streets demanding POS Mayor Rahm Emanuel resign from office.  (He didn’t).
  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.

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.

We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ii]    
  2. 2021 Sunday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. 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.
