ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Fairport Convention released a remastered version of a live album recorded back in 1970- “Live at the L.A. Troubadour” (January 23, 1977) on May 23, 2013.  For a British folk-rock band, this is a delightfully hot album featuring Richard Thompson (guitars, vocals), Simon Nichol (guitars, vocals), Dave Swarbrick (vocals, fiddles, and mandolins), Dave Pegg (bass, mandolin, vocals), and Dave Mattacks (drums).  Richard Thompson’s fretwork alone is well worth the price of admission as is the glorious setlist which is why we encourage everyone to seek this one out wherever you shop for the absolute best in rock music.  After all, Thompson deserves to be up there with the likes of Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Eric “Slow-hand” Clapton, Alvin Lee, Robin Trower, Kim Simmonds, even Peter Green, Jeremy Spencer, Danny Kirwan, and Bob Welch.   You will be so glad you looked into this album we guarantee it.  Enjoy.

ENDNOTES:

[i] Not sure when we will get around to doing the music of Three Dog Night but if we ever return to promoting the music of famed rock bands from the 1960s and the 1970s, we sure as heck will include this stellar band, one that is still performing to this day.  We saw them in 2019 and all we can say is “Wow.”

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

[iii] 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.

[iv] We look forward to sharing the music of Pink Floyd- as well as the band’s members- sometime within the next 5-6 years.

[v] We are not sure when we will begin offering the music of Blue Öyster Cult but expect it will be sometime in 2025-2026 so please stay tuned.

[vi] We promoted the music of the greatest blues-rock-British-boogie band, Savoy Brown, beginning on Friday, 28-January-2011 through Monday, 28-February-2011.  Kim Simmonds is one of the greatest guitarists of all time which is why everyone should check the music of this fabulous band out ASAP.

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

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

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

  65. 2020 Sunday:  Afghan government forces backed up by Coalition forces have had enough of the ongoing Taliban violence and launches operations against Taliban forces across nine provinces.  The body toll of the Islamists for the day is about 51 with no sign that Afghan troops going to give them an inch.  Meanwhile in Syria, Syrian government forces are cleaning out jihadists and other terrorists in Idlib Province as the government makes a concerted push to reclaim towns and villages from remaining rebels.   Elsewhere, someone gets ahold of an unreleased portion of the manuscript of former National Security Adviser John Bolton’s upcoming book, “The Room Where It Happened.”  In the unauthorized portion, Bolton says ‘Trump told him that unfreezing aid to Ukraine hinged on whether the government of Volodymyr Zelensky would provide dirt on ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden to the administration.
  66. 2021 Tuesday: As Senator Patrick Leahy, D-VT, swears in U.S. senators for the upcoming ‘impeachment trial of former President Donald J. Trump,’ West Virginia Democrat Senator Joe Manchin is joined by Arizona Democrat Senator Kyrsten Sinema vow NOT to vote to overthrow the filibuster as knuckle-dragging Senate “Majority Leader” Chuck Schumer, D-NY, seeks to do.  Speaking of the upcoming second impeachment of former President Donald J. Trump, the Senate holds a vote on whether to impeach or not to impeach the 45th president.  By a vote of 55-45 the Senate votes to move ahead with five of those voting in favor to hold the trial are Republicans: Senators Pat Toomey, Mitt Romney, Susan Murkowski, Ben Sasse, and Susan Collins, respectfully of Pennsylvania, Utah, Alaska, Nebraska, and Maine.  Losers.
  67. 2021 Tuesday A: Speaking of impeachment, noted legal scholar, professor, and trial attorney Alan Dershowitz says that ‘if the chief justice does not preside at the trial, it is BOGUS, that it’s little more than political theater.’  The famed jurist quoted Abraham Lincoln’s famous words regarding the conquered South after the Civil War: ‘with malice towards none and with charity for all,’ noting that the Democrats are doing the exact opposite in their treatment of the former president, his supporters, and those who disagree with what the Democrats are doing.  Regarding the sham impeachment, President Trump is adding another attorney from South Carolina to his defense team- former federal prosecutor Deborah Barbier to his bevy of lawyers. 
  68. 2021 Tuesday B: Subsequently- regarding the upcoming impeachment trial of President Trump, 29 Republican senators will oppose it to their utmost.  Mark Halperin- questions whether Mitch McConnell is reading accurately the mood of the GOP and is now wavering on earlier comments that he would ‘vote to convict Mr. Trump.’  “Cocaine Mitch” is one of the biggest snakes in the U.S. Senate and although he has done some good things, he is little more than an a**-kissing POS of the Democrats.  Trump helped him win HIS election and much like the scorpion on the back of the frog crossing the river, Senate MINORITY Leader McConnell stabbed him in the back.  Kentucky- recall this scumbag NOW.  If you can.
  69. 2021 Tuesday C: Speaking of “Cocaine Mitch,” “CM” and Senate ‘Majority Leader’ Chuck Schumer have arrived at a power-sharing deal that will see all committees with equal numbers of Republicans and Democrats but with Democrats serving as the chairmen-and-women.   Speaking of losers, ‘President’ Joe Biden says, “The impeachment trial must go on,” mumbling whatever his earpiece tells him to say such as ‘if the trial does NOT go forward, it could damage the nation.’  Meanwhile, former President Donald J. Trump has opened an Office of the Former President in Florida, an office with which, he will find qualified conservative candidates to primary RINO scumbags in upcoming elections.  Yesterday, he pledged his full-fledged support to Sarah Huckabee Sanders to run for governor of Arkansas in 2022.  Visit www.45office.com. Contact Mr. Trump there.  In other possible election news, many believe Ohio Republican Congressman Jim Jordan will seek Senator Rob Portman’s seat in 2022 as will Georgia Congressman Doug Collins the seat of pro-China RINO Governor Brian Kemp.  We expect both to win.
  70. 2021 Tuesday D: Kevin McCarthy mocks ‘President’ Joe Biden’s calls for ‘unity.’  The ‘46th president mumbles what his handlers tell him to say then does as they tell him to do which is NOT UNITY.   Google and Microsoft are suspending donations to all Republicans who did not accept the results of the fraudulent 2020 Presidential Election.  Elsewhere, the Goya Foods Board of Directors censures CEO Robert Unanue over his unabashed support of President Donald J. Trump.  In other ‘President’ Biden news, his press secretary- Jen Psaki- does not seem to know a great deal.  When asked by reporters as to WHY the ‘Biden administration’ is not going to stay tough on preventing the Chi-Coms from penetrating the U.S. power grid, she had no answers just like she had no answers regarding Antifa and their continued running amok around the country.  Speaking of Antifa, Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler had to pepper spray a POS Antifa punk for getting in his face in a restaurant.  Good for you.
  71. 2021 Tuesday E: Antifa-infiltrated Capitol Hill protesters continue flaunting their successes at the storming of Capitol Hill on January 6.  Speaking of the event, the woman who ran off with Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s laptop may face a permanent Internet ban once she is out of legal jeopardy.   Speaking of Internet and social media bans, Twitter removes- permanently- the account of My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell’s account yet after ‘removing the account,’ it began retweeting all manner of left-wing messages so how does one lose their account to then have some other entity begin using it?  Evil.  Meanwhile, Florida Democrat Congresswoman Stephanie Murray has a bill that will PROHIBIT anyone with ideas the ruling Democrats don’t like- such as belief the 2020 Presidential Election was full of fraud or in QAnon which does not sound all that far-fetched from holding any kind of elective office or work in government at any level.  Wow.
  72. 2021 Tuesday F: A recent Gallup Poll shows that 89-percent of American citizens are dissatisfied with the country.  Go figure: stolen elections, fake news media, social media bans, censorship, harsh restrictions, lockdowns, and Antifa and BLM mobs running amok in the streets, who the hell wouldn’t be?  Meanwhile the head of the Anti-Defamation League wants Twitter to ban the Grand Ayatollah Khamenei for constantly tweeting he wants to kill Jews and erase Israel from the face of the planet.   Elsewhere, Russia says ‘vigorous efforts needed to extend Russia-U.S. New Start arms control treaty.’  Also, as the ‘Biden administration’ presses Russia on releasing Alexei Navalny and imprisoned protesters basically puts it red fist in ‘President Biden’s’ face and brushes the senile fool off.   Finally, former Wisconsin Republican Governor Scott Walker labels the People’s Republic of China as the “New Evil Empire” due to their appalling human rights record.
  73. 2021 Tuesday G: Alleged Chi-Com spy and honeypot participant Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell says, “The FBI cleared me of any hint of conspiring with the Chi-Coms against my country.’  Bulls**t, no one has cleared you of anything.  In other political news, people are championing Fox News Channel’s chief meteorologist Janice Dean as a potential GOP candidate for the governor of New York seeing as how she is immensely popular and Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo killed both her father-and-mother-in-law by putting COVID-19-infected patients into their rest home.  Yikes.  “Killer Cuomo” had better watch out…
  74. 2021 Tuesday H: The Vatican clears retired U.S. Bishop Joseph Hart of seven abuse charges.  Hart served the church in Cheyanne, Wyoming.  Next, we learn the new iPhone can screw up pacemakers and cause heart attacks.  Love that Chi-Com technology.   Next, we learn that the TSA now has been politicized as Jennifer Kerns of All-American Radio told Newsmax TV: TSA officials are blocking Global Entry of persons who served in the former Trump administration.  WTF!   Elsewhere, in a 78-22 vote in the U.S. Senate, Anthony Blinken is confirmed as the next U.S. Secretary of State even though the Chi-Coms have dumped loads of cash- tens of millions of dollars- into his back pocket.  His predecessor, Acting U.S. Secretary of State Daniel Bennett Smith stepped down from office on this date.[vi]  Also, Janet Yellen takes the oath of office which makes her the official U.S. Treasury Secretary.     In other news, 200 House Republicans vote to uphold the Hyde Amendment which prohibits the use of taxpayer dollars to fund the Pro-Death Movement.
  75. 2021 Tuesday I: In other shameful news, communist Jane Fonda is set to receive the Golden Globes Cecil B. DeMille Award.  Big whoop.  Meanwhile, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki- not wearing a mask and repeatedly wiping her nose with her bare hand- denies that her boss, ‘President’ Joe Biden ever labeled Donald Trump’s travel ban for COVID-19 as xenophobic or racist.  Uh, but he did, Jen!  In another incident of plagiarism, ‘President’ Joe Biden says he will ‘use the military to step up deliveries of the Chi-Vi vaccine.’  Your predecessor already set this in motion.   Also, regarding the Chi-Vi, Dr. Anthony Fauci- the highest-paid putz in the federal government- says he was disturbed by his former boss’ comments on the value of bleach and other disease-killing chemicals.  He maintains the 45th president was talking about ingesting such substances; however, if you listen to the tape, the president was discussing the therapeutic effects of such items and it’s too bad we could not find something that could do the same for the human body.    Finally, Kayleigh McEnany is set to return to Fox News Channel but now, that job offer is on hold.
  76. 2021 Tuesday J: DAY SEVEN OF THE BIDEN REGIME- stick around to discover what is going on across the country…well, you will all want to know this: the Fake News Media has now gone down the rabbit hole what with the Fresh Start program in which, much like George Orwell wrote in his classic book, “1984,” will rewrite ALL past news stories to remove unfavorable news about Democrats and will rehabilitate their images and history of doings.  ‘President’ Joe Biden and ‘Vice President’ Kamala Harris definitely need much rehabilitation because both put loads of minorities into prison with their racist criminal justice policies or their enforcement of those policies.   Meanwhile, far-left former Barack Hussein Obama first AG Eric Holder urges his fellow Democrats to STACK THE U.S. SUPREME COURT NOW.  And you honestly believe these people LOVE the United States of America as founded.
  77. 2021 Tuesday K: Governor Gavin Newsom of California is scrambling to reopen California as the move to recall the little POS now has more than 1.2 million signatures.  The problem for him is that very few liked him from the start nor are they in line with his harsh lockdowns and restrictions so when we hit 1.5 million signatures, the man is going to lose office like Gray Davis- another Democrat- did back in 2003 and citizens of the state liked him far more than the current bozo ruining the state.  (PS- he’s Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s nephew- that says so much).  Elsewhere, New Mexico- a state that threw in with “Pro-China Joe” Biden- is now going to feel the brunt of the ‘46th president’s’ energy policies losing thousands of jobs as the Green New Deal politics come to the fore.  Time to find ‘Republican judges’ and do to the Democratic-Socialists what they always do to Republican administrations and that is to hammer, hammer, hammer them with injunction after injunction after injunction.  We can do it so let’s do it!  Texas is beginning to do it NOW.
  78. 2021 Tuesday L: ‘President’ Joe Biden orders an end to publicly-funded private prisons.  Yet another XO, folks, 20 by our count.  Meanwhile, Senate ‘Majority Leader’ Charles “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says the Dems may advance a COVID-19 Relief Bill sans any GOP participation.  NOTE- whatever relief they give the American people, the American people will have to pay income taxes on whatever amount it is.  Elsewhere, former Democrat Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii labels ‘John Brennan and Adam Schiff as domestic enemies of the United States.  Next, a federal judge hammers ‘President’ Joe Biden’s XO putting all deportations on hold for 100 days.  About flipping time, federal judges, how about an injunction to overturn the halt to the Keystone XL Pipeline.  Finally, “Big Brother Joe” Biden vows to fight systemic racism in the country, racism that he and his former boss, Barack Hussein Obama had eight flipping years to fix and didn’t.  Of course, systemic racism does not exist, why do millions of people seek to come to our country?  Because it’s a wonderful place.
  79. 2021 Tuesday M: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 100,032,461 confirmed cases, +445,377, 2,149,818, confirmed deaths, +13,259, and 55,239,856 confirmed recoveries, +319,710.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 25,604,046 confirmed cases, up 229,745 from yesterday’s reporting, 427,069 confirmed deaths, UP 3,458, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP 36,070.

  81. 2021 Tuesday O:  THE BIDEN AGENDA IS DESTROYING THE STOCK MARKET.  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,937.504 DOWN 22.96 points (-0.74%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,626.07, DOWN 9.93 points (-0.73%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,849.62, DOWN 5.74 points (-0.15%).  The price of GOLD is $1,849.60 per troy oz., -1.10 (-0.06%) while the price of SILVER is $25.50 per troy ounce, -0.038 (-0.15%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,107.20 per troy oz, -0.20 (-0.02%) while the price of COPPER is $3.62 per pound, +0.002 (+0.06%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,325.00 per troy oz, -21.90 (-0.93%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.17 per barrel, +0.16 (+0.30%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Iranian Rial equals 42,000.00 (same as last week).  That’s what a terrorism-based economy gets you.  Next, here is the conversion for one U.S. dollar and Bitcoin: 0.000031.  In other economic news, Target is giving all hourly workers a bonus of $500.  Don’t forget- you will pay taxes on this money…
  82. 2021 Tuesday P: ‘President’ Joe Biden’s Department of Justice ends the ‘zero tolerance’ rule for illegal aliens seeking to storm the country.   Elsewhere, after writing a BS story in the New Yorker Magazine, the company had to return the National Magazine Award.  One leftwing site after another lies, steals other people’s works, and spreads propaganda, yet they remain open while leftists pursue bloggers like us.  Meanwhile, a tornado touched down in Alabama killing one person and injuring at least 17 others.   Next, the U.S. is seriously considering forcing everyone who wants to board an airliner to take the Chi-Vi test, you know, the nasal swab for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Finally, the man given the nod to take John Robert’s place in the second impeachment trial of former President Donald J. Trump- Vermont Democrat Senator Patrick “Loose Lips” Leahy- suddenly is carted off to the hospital for an unspecified illness.  Crabs?

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 began promoting the music of the greatest British blues rock band, the Climax Blues Band, beginning on Monday, 16-September-2019 through Sunday, 27-October-2019.  This included the solo efforts of Pete Haycock and Colin Cooper.  We hope you will check them out and add them to your collection.

[ii] We are not sure when we will begin offering albums by the Little River Band as that could be another 5-10 years from now but one day, we most surely will because they are one of the world’s greatest bands.  Seeing them live in the 1970s was a mind-altering experience, my friends.

[iii] Not sure when we will promote the music of Van Halen but when we do, we will also present the music of Sammy Hagar so please stay tuned.

[iv] 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.

[v] 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.

  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.

DAY THREE HUNDRED-AND-SIXTY-NINE OF THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION

23. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, JANUARY 23, 2022, UPDATE A:

Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills played a hell of a game.  A hell of a game.  While Matthew Stafford and the Rams beat Tom Brady and the Bucs.  Wow.  

  1. 2022 Sunday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole: 352,130,548 confirmed cases, +2,201,351, 5,614,795 confirmed deaths, +4,602 and 279,853,057 confirmed recoveries, +1,377,500.

We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ii]    
  2. 2022 Sunday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 439,913 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 76,561 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in ELEVEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 368 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.            
  3. 2022 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: 7,450,319 confirmed cases, 78,870 confirmed deaths, and 7,371,449 confirmed recoveries (since California won’t report recoveries anymore, we are doing it).  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,351,391 confirmed cases, 63,576 confirmed deaths, and 3,666,925 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 202,273 confirmed cases, 1,146 confirmed deaths, and 201,127 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,159,514 confirmed cases, 10,476 confirmed deaths, and 368,306 confirmed recoveries (it’s the weekend- SAME NUMBERS).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Massachusetts: they have 1,536,256 confirmed cases, 21,402 confirmed deaths, and 1,514,854 confirmed recoveries.[iii]   
  4. 2022 Sunday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day- Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 2,212,596 confirmed cases, 8,393 confirmed deaths, and 1,761,974 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Ivory Coast, 125th country on the list: 80,176 cases of the virus, 779 confirmed death and 76,831 confirmed recoveries.[iv]  Like we said yesterday, here is yet another country that uses hydroxychloroquine to combat malaria and look how low the numbers of fatalities are.  Amazing.              
  5. 2022 Sunday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,265.37, DOWN 450.02 points (-1.30%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,768.92 DOWN 385.10 points (-2.72%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,397.94, DOWN 84.79 points (-1.89%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $84.83 per barrel, -0.72 (-0.84%).  The price of GOLD is $1,836.10 per troy oz., -6.50 (-0.35%) while the price of SILVER is $24.35 per troy ounce, -0.37 (-1.50%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,030.90 per troy oz, -19.90 (-1.89%) while the price of COPPER is $4.52 per pound, -0.06 (-1.35%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,107.34 per troy oz., +47.72 (+2.32%). The price of RHODIUM is $16,600.00 per troy oz., +100.00 (+0.61%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,265,000.00 per CNY/T, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,026.00 per USD/T, -85.50 (-2.73%). The price of ZINC is $3,669.00 per troy oz., +19.50 (+0.53%).   The price of COCOA is $2,576.00 per USD/T, -84.00 (+3.16%).  The price of LUMBER is $1,143.70 USD 1,000 board feet -45.00 (-3.79%).[vi]   Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000028.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.33 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.88 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.45.    In Swiss Franc, one greenback equals 0.91 and in West African CFA Franc, a buck equals 575.25 and in Zambian Kwacha, one dollar equals 17.48 of theirs.[vii]       
  6. 2022 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 $4.644 per gallon, $3.228 in Florida, $4.346 in Hawaii, and $3.963 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Oklahoma- $3.014.  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 104th HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- Jamaica: $4.985 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $29,873,592,429,470 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 Taiwan the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Hong Kong with $224,000,000,000 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  7. 2022 Sunday F: Today was Day Number 2 for the NFL Divisional Round and what a day it was.  First, the Los Angeles Rams (14-5-0) beat the home team, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (14-5-0) by a final score of 30-27.  What a game.  Next, the Buffalo Bills (13-6-0) went to Kansas City to play the Chiefs (13-6-0) and almost beat them but lost in overtime by a final score of 42-36.  What a heartbreak.  Next week, the Cincinnati Bengals (12-7-0) go to KC to play the Chiefs while the San Francisco 49ers (12-7-0) go to L.A.  Should be a great weekend.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

  43. 2002 Wednesday: Kenneth Lay- CEO of the bankrupt energy company, Enron, resigns.  Promoted by government and politicians, the company was a boondoggle from the start that sucked out the lifesavings of duped investors.
  44. 2003 Thursday: For the first time in the history of the company, McDonald’s restaurant chain reports a quarterly loss of $344 million driving the cost of stock shares down by at least 3-percent.   Meanwhile, Pioneer 10, launched in 1972 to study the gas giant, Jupiter, lost contact with NASA for good as it sails out of the Solar System and into interstellar space.
  45. 2004 Friday: The Chi-Com-engineered bird flu, aka H5N1 that swept into India now has reportedly claimed the life of a Thai man.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, an explosion of unknown origins at the Zhengzhou railway station kills two and injures several others.  The Ministry of State Security is tracking down the dirty rats.
  46. 2005 Sunday: In the NFL’s NFC Championship Game, the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Atlanta Falcons by a final score of 27-10.  Meanwhile, in the AFC Championship Game, the New England Patriots clobber the Pittsburgh Steelers by a final score of 41-27.  The Eagles led by quarterback Donovan McNabb will meet the Patriots led by quarterback Tom Brady.  Who will win?  (Note- the Patriots will win by a final score of 24-21).
  47. 2006 Monday: Steven Harper wins the Canadian election for prime minister, becoming the first Conservative Party in 12 years.   Elsewhere, following two blasts suspected to be sabotage which subsequently led to Moscow cutting off supplies of natural gas to Armenia and Georgia, Azerbaijan steps forward and restarts supplies of the life-saving fuel. 
  48. 2007 Tuesday: After helping crush Islamists in Somalia in general and in Mogadishu in particular, Ethiopian military forces begin withdrawing from the nation’s capital city.  Elsewhere, an exasperated President George W. Bush- smarting from setbacks in Iraq- gives his State of the Union Address and does his best to reel in some members of the opposition by proposing new environmental measures combined with social reforms.  No takers.
  49. 2008 Wednesday: Following Palestinian militants blowing up a portion of Israel’s wall along the Gaza Strip, tens of thousands flee into Egypt fearful of the retribution they are smart enough to know is coming their way.  (Note- why don’t peace-loving Palestinians overthrow these thugs who rob them blind and make their lives miserable).
  50. 2009 Friday: The 16th U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood assumed office on this date.  A Republican, he served under President Barack Hussein Obama from January 23, 2009, to July 02, 2013.  Elsewhere, Empire State Governor David Paterson, Democrat, local politician, Kirsten Gillibrand, to fill Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton’s seat in the U.S. Senate.  Senator Clinton left her seat to serve in the Obama administration as its secretary of state.
  51. 2010 Saturday: After refusing to broadcast government messages, the Venezuelan government shuts down six television channels.  Elsewhere, following a U.S. Justice Department probe that says ’47 of the POWs held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, should be held indefinitely,’ the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) goes berserk.  What a bunch of terrorist-loving losers.   Meanwhile, Vice President Joe Biden arrives in Baghdad to discuss the nation’s upcoming parliamentary elections occurring in March (and also to see what he can earn for his family, under the table, of course).
  52. 2011 Sunday: Pakistan’s President, Asif Ali Zardari, launched an emergency polio immunization program targeting 32 million children under age 5.  Meanwhile, the five permanent members of the U.N.

  54. 2012 Monday: The European Union imposes more sanctions on Iran’s banking and oil industries over its refusal to stop its nuclear program.  Elsewhere, back when nations still had balls, France passed a law making it illegal for its citizens- Muslim citizens we suspect– from denying the Armenian Genocide carried out by the Ottoman Turks during World War I.  Speaking of Islamic violence, Syrian government security forces go on punitive operations against ISIS thugs attempting to overthrow the government of Bashar al-Assad and kill at least 22 people suspected of being jihadists.  Of course, the world press screams they’re ‘civilians!’  
  55. 2013 Wednesday: Davos, Switzerland hosts its 2013 World Economic Forum.  Elsewhere, in Nigeria- the so-called ‘religion of peace’- Islam, in the form of Boko Haram, carries out some atrocities in the town of Maiduguri where adherents hack five people believed to be Christians to death with machetes.  Crucify these Islamists… Meanwhile, the U.S. military overturns its ban on women serving in combat.  That’s a win for women’s rights (yeah, right).
  56. 2014 Thursday: Celebrity and pop singer Justin Bieber[v] makes headlines when police arrest the punk for drunken driving, street racing, and resisting arrest.  Elsewhere, the murder of popular sex club owner and icon, Millie Marković, on the streets of Stockholm, Sweden sparks outrage and fear.  No one knows why the seller of sex in a country built upon the sex trade would become a murder victim.
  57. 2015 Friday: After spending three weeks in the hospital for pneumonia, 90-year-old Saudi monarch, King Abdulla bin Abdulaziz loses his fight with the disease and dies.  Elsewhere, the Doomsday Clock jumps forward by two minutes leaving it but three short minutes before midnight, when everything will sputter to an end, thanks in part to nuclear proliferation around the world as well as the perils posed to the planet by Climate Change.
  58. 2016 Saturday: Following an outbreak of zika virus in Brazil, the governments of Jamaica, El Salvador, Colombia, and Ecuador advise women to delay pregnancies for two years.  Meanwhile, the migrant crisis continues worsening in Europe.  At least 200 ‘migrants’ from the Middle East and Africa attempt to storm the Calais Chunnel area so they can cross into Britain.  The French are able to foil the attempt but it’s easy to understand WHY the British people want Brexit.  The Continent is out of control.  Elsewhere, New York former mayor and billionaire is considering launching an independent presidential bid for 2016.
  59. 2017 Monday: Tornados and thunderstorms across Mississippi and Georgia leave 18 people dead.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump signs two notable executive orders today: the first to pull the U.S. out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, aka the TPP, a crown jewel of the Obama administration and the second a reinstatement of the Mexico City Policy which prohibits the use of U.S. foreign aid to organizations that promote or conduct abortions.  Excellent.
  60. 2018 Tuesday: In Saudi Arabia in the King Abdulaziz Camel Beauty Contest, 12 camels undergo disqualification after their owners ‘confessed’ to having used Botox on the lips of their animals.  Did the owners lose their heads, too?  No one knows.  Meanwhile, the ‘religion of peace’- Islam- strikes yet again, this time in Benghazi, Libya, as a double car bomb goes off in a busy district blowing 33 people to meet Mohammad and wounds dozens and dozens of other unsuspecting souls.  Will they ever stop?  Elsewhere, the U.S. Senate confirms Jerome Powell to be the next chair of the Federal Reserve by a vote of 84-13.
  61. 2019 Wednesday: Citing the shutdown of the federal government, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi disinvites President Donald J. Trump from giving his SOTU address.  He did it about one month later after the government reopened for business.  Meanwhile, furloughed federal workers swamp the Senate building to protest the ongoing federal government shutdown.  Who let them in?  Where was security? 
  62. 2019 Wednesday A: Elsewhere, the criminal government of Venezuela accuses the Trump administration of ‘engineering a coup’ against the ‘kind, gentle, and loving’ administration of thug President Nicolas Maduro.  Simultaneously, opposition leader Juan Guaidó takes the oath of office as Venezuela’s next president because he did WIN the election until he ‘didn’t.’  The fact that the U.S., Canada, and other Western nations recognize him as the president doesn’t mean s**t as long as the Chi-Coms, the Russians, the Cubans, and the Iranians continue their support of the Maduro regime.
  63. 2020 Thursday: Fighting continues in Syria as rebels attempt to storm rebel positions in Idlib Province.  Russian and Syrian troops throw the rebels back, killing at least 50 Islamists dead and another 90 wounded while the Syrian government forces lost about half that number.   Meanwhile, in Wuhan, China, nearly 850 cases of the coronavirus with at least 25 fatalities are counted.  Singapore declares its first case of the COVID-19.  The virus is spreading.
  64. 2021 Saturday: As ‘President’ Joe Biden continues signing executive orders favorable to not only the American left but to the Chi-Coms, Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio decries the implementation of the far-left agenda and the loss of what will be more than 1 million jobs in the first week of the ‘Biden regime.’  You should have stood for President Trump, Little Marco, but you were missing in action.  You and your ‘hand size.’  Next, we learn that 150 National Guard troops in D.C. ‘to protect the illicit administration from the American people’ are COVID-19 positive.  Thank you, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi for sending them to sleep in a parking structure.  YOU MUST BE IMPEACHED.  Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader Charles “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says the impeachment trial for ‘ex-President’ Donald J. Trump will commence on February 8 even though Chief Justice John Roberts says he won’t preside over it (at least until Antifa mobs show up outside his home and ‘persuade him’ otherwise).
  65. 2021 Saturday A: The National Republican Congressional Committee has thrown the 10 House members who voted to impeach President Donald J. Trump to the wolves saying they will NOT intervene in Republican primaries in 2022.  Justice is heading your way, you worthless scumbags.  Meanwhile, for some inexplicable reason, ‘President’ Joe Biden trashes President Trump’s executive order slashing drug prices for the American people.  WTF did you do something like this you decrepit old POS.  What the hell is wrong with that?  Elsewhere, Doug Schoen, now with Newsmax TV, says, “More legislation and less executive orders,” ‘President’ Biden.   Finally, in Moscow, Russian police arrest 2,1000 people demanding the immediate release of Alexei Navalny, opposition leader towards thug Vladimir Putin.
  66. 2021 Saturday B: The ACLU is demanding that all states add an “X” to their official documents when it comes to listing one’s sex.  What a load of crap, there are TWO biological sexes, period.  For people that claim to listen to science it’s shocking that they pick and choose what ‘science’ with which to listen.  Stupid.  Elsewhere, the NFL- thumping its chest with pride- is going to give 7,500 Super Bowl LV tickets to vaccinated healthcare workers.  How noble of you.  Meanwhile, also in a moment of chest-thumping, Twitter says that following Inauguration violence across the country, it’s suspending the accounts of Antifa.  Wow.  Really big of you!  Finally, in South Dakota, unemployment has fallen to 3-percent or lower thanks to the state’s decision to keep everything up-and-running.  In places such as New York that closed everything down, the ignoramus Governor Andrew Cuomo is demanding ‘President’ Joe Biden give him $15 billion in bailout funds.  We hope YOU go down, you homicidal POS.
  67. 2021 Saturday C: COVID-19 Daily Update:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 98,288,147 confirmed cases, +541,350, 2,109,758, confirmed deaths, +12,495, and 54,255,414 confirmed recoveries, +358,448.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 25,109,272 confirmed cases, up 247,884 from yesterday’s reporting, 419,058 confirmed deaths, UP 5,799, and 10,974,161 confirmed recoveries, UP 128,723.  We learn that famed TV personality Larry King died at age 87 due to COVID-19. 
  68. 2021 Saturday D: 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: 3,140,928 confirmed cases, 36,326 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases (again, Hawaii is no longer reporting their case numbers in more than a week), 332 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 302,546 confirmed cases, 4,178 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Alaska: currently, they have 52,901 confirmed cases, 254 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 593,578 confirmed cases, 4,326 confirmed deaths, and 512,469 confirmed recoveries.   
  69. 2021 Saturday E: Stay tuned for tonight’s Super Lotto Draw #3528 with a jackpot of $14 million up for grabs and for the Powerball Drawing #814 with a $20 million pot on the line.  First up, we have the Super Lotto numbers- 15, 25, 37, 43, 45, and Mega 12.  Out of 143,211 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO MEGA for a prize of $24,588.  One winning ticket was sold at the Safeway in Newark, CA, 94560 while the other was sold at the 7/11 at Los Gatos, CA, 95030.  Here are the numbers for the Powerball- 05, 08, 17, 27, 28, and Powerball 14.  Powerball for a prize of $33,827 apiece.  Six of the winning tickets were sold in (1) San Francisco Mart I, San Francisco, CA 94116; (2) Shell, Baker, CA 92309; (3) ARCO AM/PM in Bellflower, CA, 90706; (4) Desert Smoke Shop, Desert Hot Springs, CA, 92240; (5) 7-11, San Diego, CA, 92123; (6) Zoo Liquor and Gas, Fresno, CA, 93728.
  70. 2021 Saturday F: Democrats are seeking to rein in expectations over their upcoming ‘immigration bill.’  What?  We thought the 30-50 million illegals infesting our country are getting immediate citizenship and everything that goes with it.  Meanwhile, Dems are also saying that making federal election standards a top priority- what, NO MAIL IN BALLOTS?  Speaking of Democrats, the Chi-Coms are singing a different tune now, claiming that ‘no one on their end was seeking meetings with ‘President’ Joe Biden or members of his administration.  Of course, they were and still are- everyone knows it.  They are Joe’s masters, so they want immediate payback for having put him in office (or so we allege). Elsewhere, Steve Forbes tells Newsmax that an ‘economic crisis’ is coming soon.  You had better believe it.  
  71. 2022 Sunday: Aloha.  Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

ENDNOTES:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

17. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, JANUARY 17, 2022

2020 Friday: The Chi-Coms waste no time: a man convicted of murdering a doctor on New Year’s Eve receives a penalty of death. Apparently, attacks on medical personnel have increased in the communist giant following the outbreak of the Bat Flu and a lackluster response in dealing with it. The man killed a doctor in Beijing. So, 17-plus days after the crime, he’s tried and convicted and most likely going to have the sentence carried out soon. The U.S. could learn something on this front.

  68. 2018 Wednesday: To the outrage of many, President Donald J. Trump tweets a link to the Republican National Committee’s Fake News Awards where the 45th president shares the 10 most bogus stories reported in the fake news.  He also shares how he is accomplishing so much even though the fake news media does its best to destroy him.

  70. 2020 Friday: The Chi-Coms waste no time: a man convicted of murdering a doctor on New Year’s Eve receives a penalty of death.  Apparently, attacks on medical personnel have increased in the communist giant following the outbreak of the Bat Flu and a lackluster response in dealing with it.  The man killed a doctor in Beijing.  So, 17-plus days after the crime, he’s tried and convicted and most likely going to have the sentence carried out soon.  The U.S. could learn something on this front.
  71. 2021 Sunday:  Following an average of violent assaults on ten transit workers per month since July 2020, New York City Transit officials are begging for extra security from their ‘missing in action’ worthless Mayor Bill Di Blasio.  Haven’t heard if he’s going to acknowledge their requests.  Next, thanks to similar problems, BIG TECH companies are fleeing San Francisco as though it has a horrible case of herpes.  Can’t blame them.  Meanwhile, ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden guarantees that on Inauguration Day, he is going to legalize 11 million illegal aliens as a start which will lead to an erasing of borders.  Election theft has consequences.   Elsewhere, “Big Brother Facebook” now is going to ban ads for weapon accessories.
  72. 2021 Sunday A: The House Intel Committee requests all documents on the events that lead up to the storming of the Capitol Hill on January 6.  What will they say when they learn for sure that Chi-Com-funded Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs infiltrated and instigated the actions that occurred on that dreary day?  We have learned that not only the Chi-Coms but also the Iranians and possibly the Russians funneled Bitcoin dark money through Europe that made its way into the hands of the human garbage that desecrated the nation’s capital and have given the Democrats their Reichstag Fire moment.   Speaking of the “Reichstag Fire” moment, statehouses across the country are ‘gearing up for Inauguration Day violence caused by TRUMP SUPPORTERS.”  Oh, please, they are blaming Trump supporters for their crackdown on civil liberties and the overthrow of the American way of life.   Meanwhile, 59-percent of Republicans want their legislators to challenge “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s theft of the 2020 Presidential Election as do we.
  73. 2021 Sunday B: Vice President Mike Pence is visiting Fort Drum today to deliver remarks to the 10th Mountain Division.  Elsewhere, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee says that ‘Kamala Harris should be impeached for having supported left-wing political violence all last year’ as well as for ‘bailing out criminal thugs who perpetrated said violence.’  We agree.  We also approve of Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s articles of impeachment against “Chi-Com Joe” Biden on January 21, 2020, for his deep ties to COMMUNIST CHINA.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Vice President Mike Pence urges the incoming ‘Biden-Harris’ administration to maintain eternal vigilance on the communist Chi-Coms.  Elsewhere, one of the BOGUS Lincoln Project’s co-founders John Weaver steps down for having propositioned numerous young men seeking sexual hook-ups for misbehavior.  Lincoln Project is as bogus as is the 1619 Project, crackpot, left-wing BS crap.
  74. 2021 Sunday C:  A recent NBC poll shows that approval ratings among Republicans for President Trump is as high as ever with 87-percent of the GOP solidly behind the president.   Meanwhile, this past Friday, Bill Maher criticized the incoming ‘Biden-Harris administration’ for flaunting all the COVID-19 restrictions by holding large inaugural events.   Everyone else but leftwing protesters must remain indoors cowering from the Chi-Vi, the Kung Flu, the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  We say, “F**k them!”  P.S.- Joe will NEVER be our president. 
  75. 2021 Sunday D: The Australian Open is going to proceed in early February as planned even though some tennis players must remain indoors for 14 days if anyone around them tested positive for the Chinese Virus.  Many players said they would not have come had they known they would have had to remain indoors without practice for two flipping weeks.  Who can blame them?   Elsewhere, Betty White hits 99 years of age today.  Meanwhile, fans of Jeopardy! want the stage named for the late host, Alex Trebek.    
  76. 2021 Sunday E: Alexei Navalny arrives back in Moscow and is detained on arrival by Russian authorities.  Elsewhere, former Facebook official suggests that cable providers drop OAN and Newsmax.  Simultaneously, Twitter has suspended the account of Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene.  AND YOU THINK THERE’S NO FUNNY BUSINESS GOING ON ACROSS THE COUNTRY AND THE WORLD?
  77. 2021 Sunday F: On day 2 of the NFL Divisional Round of the playoffs, the Kansas City Chiefs (15-2) survive the loss of quarterback Patrick Mahomes and beat the visiting Cleveland Browns (12-6) by a final score of 22-17.  In the second game, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (13-5) beat the New Orleans Saints, 20 (13-5).  Next Sunday, the Bucs will visit Green Bay and Buffalo will visit Kansas City in the conference round.  We are making a BOLD prediction now- a ‘State Farm Super Bowl,’ Kansas City vs. Green Bay!  You heard it here first!  
  78. 2021 Sunday G: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 95,003,533 confirmed cases, +592,965, 2,029,938, confirmed deaths, +9,896, and 52,269,644 confirmed recoveries, +302,236.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 24,117,759 confirmed cases (mysteriously down from a week ago), up 120,964 from yesterday’s reporting, 401,256 confirmed deaths, UP 1,576, and 10,467,918 confirmed recoveries, UP 44,674.
  79. 2021 Sunday H: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 2,976,643 confirmed cases, 33,393 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases, 322 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 290,896 confirmed cases, 3,971 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: West Virginia: currently, they have 108,821 confirmed cases, 1,776 confirmed deaths, and 80,187 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 548,332 confirmed cases, 4,005 confirmed deaths, and 472,437 confirmed recoveries.

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, “Sense of Occasion,” came out on February 12, 2007, and although some fans dismissed it for being somewhat ho-hum compared to their previous release, the band of merry Brits turns in yet another soul-satisfying release.  The band features the quintet of Andy Guttridge (acoustic guitars), Ric Sanders (violins), Dave Pegg (acoustic and electric basses, and tenor mandola), Simon Nichol (guitars and vocals), Gerry Conway (drums), and Chris Leslie (mandolins, fiddles, cellos, and flutes).  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.

Sunday, January 17, 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…


Monday, January 17, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We promoted the music of the James Gang beginning on Saturday, 11-August-2012 through Monday, 27-August-2012.  We did not do the solo discography of Joe Walsh at the time but when we arrive at the Eagles, we most certainly will.

[ii] On Wednesday, 14-June-2017, we began presenting the music of the Guess Who and of its individual members- including Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Randy Bachman, Burton Cummings, and Bravebelt.  The entire discography ran from the above date through Sunday, 01-October-2017.  We hope you will check them out.

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

[iv] 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.  The debut Led Zeppelin album appeared on 07-July-2014.  We hope you will check this famed British band out.

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

[vi] 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.

[vii] 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.

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 300

DAY THREE HUNDRED-AND-SIXTY-TWO OF THE BIDEN REGIME

16. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, JANUARY 16, 2022, UPDATE A:

Three big NFL Wildcard games today…

  1. 2022 Sunday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole: 328,844,451 confirmed cases, +2,057,598, 5,557,893 confirmed deaths, +4,251 and 267,726,222 confirmed recoveries, +1,293,848. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 66,995,533 confirmed cases, UP 331,250 from yesterday’s reporting, 873,564 confirmed deaths, UP +415,[i] and 43,090,644 confirmed recoveries, UP 31,555. We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ii]    
  2. 2022 Sunday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 424,280 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 61,908 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in ELEVEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 361 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.  It is time to eject this senile pretender from office and back to his Delaware basement, there to watch “Matlock” reruns sitting in his rocker, slurping up his Campbell’s chicken noodle soup while Dr. Jill dabs the drool from his receding chin, and dressed in a shawl.  His wife should be doing time in prison for elder abuse.          
  3. 2022 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: 6,729,869 confirmed cases, 78,053 confirmed deaths, and 6,651,816 confirmed recoveries (since California won’t report recoveries anymore, we are doing it).  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,089,226 confirmed cases, 63,090 confirmed deaths, and 3,656,729 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 169,886 confirmed cases, 1,126 confirmed deaths, and 168,760 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,046,777 confirmed cases, 10,294 confirmed deaths, and 350,434 confirmed recoveries (thanks to their slope-headed, dimwitted governor, Jay “Palooka” Inslee, these people go dark on the f**king weekends- F**K him).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Pennsylvania: they have 2,458,722 confirmed cases, 38,619 confirmed deaths, and 2,420,103 confirmed recoveries.[iii]   
  4. 2022 Sunday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day- Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 1,792,137 confirmed cases, 8,318 confirmed deaths, and 1,530,716 confirmed recoveries (somewhat the same numbers).   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Maldives, 117th country on the list: 103,581 cases of the virus, 265 confirmed death and 97,328 confirmed recoveries.[iv]

58. 2021 Friday A: And so, it begins: Federal prosecutors seek Donald Trump Jr. for ‘questioning.’ Questioning for what, pray tell? Meanwhile, a Trump deputy in the White House is reassuring staffers in the era of Cancel Culture that they will be ‘okay,’ even as Harvard is on the edge of bowing to its students and stripping Kayleigh McEnany of her advanced law degree.

  54. 2018 Monday: Protests marking the seventh anniversary of the revolution in Tunis, Tunisia, turn violent as people begin protesting the current government.  Elsewhere, the Turkish government threatens to take actions against the U.S.-backed Syrian Border Security Force while the government of Bashar al-Assad threatens to extinguish all U.S. operations within his crappy country.  Neither does anything.  Meanwhile, as a former CIA officer tries to fly out of New York, authorities swoop in and arrest the POS Jerry Chun Shing-Lee on charges of espionage for- you guessed it- communist China.  After he left the Central Intelligence Agency, he retained all manner of info in notebooks and handed it over to his handlers.
  55. 2019 Tuesday: LGBTQIA+ activists accuse the government of Chechnya, a well-known place of ‘tolerance’ of a pogrom against gays what with 40 detained and two slain.  Meanwhile, a witness in the trial of Mexican drug lord, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman claims that former Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto took a bribe of $100 million from the cartel to look the other way.  Elsewhere, South Korean officials announce that North Korean officials will be visiting the United States to discuss setting up a second summit between President Donald J. Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.
  56. 2020 Wednesday: Multi-instrumentalist with the British band Kaleidoscope- Chris Darrow- died on this date.  Elsewhere, CNN reports that a Delta Airlines jetliner approaching LAX dumped fuel during its descent which fell on local schools.  At least 60 or more students were rushed to the hospital for treatment.  The authorities are investigating the incident.  Meanwhile, Sudanese government forces announce they have quelled a violent mutiny by members of its armed forces in the capital city of Khartoum.   
  57. 2021 Friday: A recent poll says that 9 out of 10 Americans oppose the Capitol Hill riots of January 6, the ones in which, Antifa infiltrated its commandoes amongst supporters of the 45th president to discredit them, in much the same way they have since the Charlottesville clashes between Antifa and white supremacists, BOTH groups we believe were set in motion by ONE entity: the Chi-Coms via their stooges in the Democratic Party.   Meanwhile, drooling House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi announces she is appointing retired U.S. Army General Russell Honoré- of Hurricane Katrina fame- to lead a task force to investigate how to transform the Capitol Building from a ‘soft target’ into a ‘hard one.’  One of the things she can do is not to tell Capitol Hill police officers to stand aside and motion Antifa thugs inside.  Furthermore, Madam Speaker cannot say when the second impeachment trial for President Trump will begin.  Next, lawmakers author a bi-partisan bill to honor slain Capitol Hill police officer Brian Sicknick.  God bless him.  
  58. 2021 Friday A: And so, it begins: Federal prosecutors seek Donald Trump Jr. for ‘questioning.’   Questioning for what, pray tell?  Meanwhile, a Trump deputy in the White House is reassuring staffers in the era of Cancel Culture that they will be ‘okay,’ even as Harvard is on the edge of bowing to its students and stripping Kayleigh McEnany of her advanced law degree.  Next, Trump campaign lawyer Jenna Ellis tells Newsmax TV that ‘this impeachment is no different’ and that it’s an ‘abuse of the U.S. Constitution.’  Meanwhile, Ric Grenell tells Newsmax TV that the ‘D.C. media has switched from the news to advocacy for all left-wing causes.’  Rudy Giuliani believes it’s all a scheme to prevent #45 from running for office again.  Finally, also to Newsmax TV, Dick Morris- famed political strategist and consultant- says that ‘impeachment and the 25th Amendment are watering down the presidency.’  NO- the AICPENDBLOG.COM believes the Democrats and the RINOS are trying to replace the presidency with a parliamentary system in which the party in power chooses who will be the figurehead.
  59. 2021 Friday B: New York State news- a new bill in Albany would make it illegal for New Yorkers to own or buy body armor.  Why?  Elsewhere in New York City, we now learn that thanks to the criminal mismanagement by Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo and addle-brained NYC Mayor Bill Di Blasio, more than 372,000 private businesses have been destroyed in the Big Apple, never to return, many of them in professional foodservice and hospitality. 
  60. 2021 Friday C: Due to ‘security threats’ in Washington, D.C., the Inauguration Day rehearsal for ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden has been pushed back to Monday. We learn that J-Lo and Lady Gaga are going to be among the left-wing performers celebrating the ‘victory’ of the incoming senile 46th ‘president.’  Next, according to Rush Limbaugh, the feds are rushing 25,000 troops into Washington, D.C. to prevent against the expected (Antifa-caused) violence on Wednesday, January 20.  (According to the talk show mega-giant, this is more troops than are currently station in BOTH Iraq and Afghanistan).  Speaking of the riots, the FBI reports that the Capitol Hill mobs planned to assassinate leaders.  Again, this sounds like Antifa and BLM human garbage, not Trump supporters.  Meanwhile, Mr. Biden chooses former FDA Chief David Kessler to head Operation Warp Speed. 
  61. 2021 Friday D: In a peculiar move, Oklahoma Senator James Lankford, a Republican, apologizes to black Tulsans for having opposed the certification of “President-elect Pro-China Joe” Biden.  Why?  What was racist about questioning the certification?  Dimwit. Next, the media appears to have twisted the remarks of Senator Tommy Tuberville, R-Alabama, in suggesting a delay on Biden’s certification.   
  62. 2021 Friday E: Elsewhere, a new poll shows that a vast majority of Republicans and swing state voters favor hiring U.S. workers before hiring illegal aliens.  Next, the Wyoming Republican Party is unhappy with Congresswoman Liz Cheney, one of their own, who was among the 10 RINO Republicans to vote for the SECOND IMPEACHMENT OF PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP.  (Note- those 10 representatives and four of their counterparts in the U.S. Senate- Lisa Murkowski, RINO-Alaska, Ben Sasse, RINO-Nebraska, Pat Toomey, RINO-Pennsylvania, and Mitt Romney, RINO-Utah, we believe will make it onto the list of nominees for the Fourth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award to be awarded in January 2022).
  63. 2021 Friday F: Fossilized ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden announces his COVID-19/Stimulus Plan: first, $20 billion for a national vaccination program.  Second, $50 billion for expanded testing, treatment, and tracing programs.  Third, $2,000 stimulus checks for all illegal aliens and American citizens.  Fourth and final, $15 minimum wage for federal entry level jobs.  Economist Stephen Moore says that the final peg of Beijing Joe’s stimulus plan will cost ‘4 million additional American jobs.’  WTF?  Next, the U.S. Secret Service is telling its officers in the run-up to Inauguration Day to remain ‘professional’ and ‘non-partisan.’  Meanwhile, the IRS announces it’s behind on 7 million tax returns from last year all because of COVID-19.
  64. 2021 Friday G: Russia cites the U.S. withdrawal from the Open Skies Treaty as its reason for leaving the agreement.  In Great Britain, it would appear that Mask Sharia is on the way there as the British government says, ‘people may have to wear masks forever.’  Wow.  Coming soon to a country near you?  Elsewhere, Dunkin’ Donuts has created a new biodegradable straw.  Congratulations.  Next, a Mickey Mantle baseball card sold for $5.2 million setting an all-time record.  Elsewhere, Joanne Roberts, widow of Mr. Rogers, dies at age 92.  Meanwhile, President Trump plans to hold an event as outgoing president on Inauguration Day at same time senile Old Joe is scheduled to place his quivering hand atop a Bible.

  66. 2021 Friday 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: 2,898,041 confirmed cases, 32,291 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases, 318 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 288,127 confirmed cases, 3,949 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Idaho: currently, they have 153,506 confirmed cases, 1,593 confirmed deaths, and 69,460 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 535,049 confirmed cases, 3,910 confirmed deaths, and 447,076 confirmed recoveries.   
  67. 2021 Friday J:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,814.26, DOWN 177.26 points (-0.57%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,998.50, DOWN 114.14 points (-0.87%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,768.25, DOWN 27.29 points (-0.72%).  The price of GOLD is $1,827.70 per troy oz., -2.20 (-0.12%) while the price of SILVER is $24.83 per troy ounce, -0.036 (-0.14%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,078.70 per troy oz, -11.20 (-1.03%) while the price of COPPER is $3.50 per pound, -0.001 (-0.03%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,395.10 per troy oz, -28.20 (-1.16%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.04 per barrel, -0.32 (-0.61%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.48 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Hong Kong dollars equals 7.75.  In other economic news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue says the government ‘declared martial law by imposing the harsh COVID-19 lockdowns on the American people.’  How right you are, sir!
  68. 2021 Friday K: Senator Lindsey Graham, RINO-SC, says that the Mueller probe into Trump-Russia collusion- Crossfire Hurricane- was ‘the most incompetent’ and ‘most corrupt’ investigation ever conducted by the FBI and the Department of Justice.  Meanwhile, Vice President Mike Pence speaks with Vice President-elect “Kooky Kamala” Harris on the phone.  The incoming VP says she hopes for a ‘peaceful transition of power.’  Next, NY prosecutors drag former Trump attorney Michael Cohen in to answer questions about the 45th president’s finances.    Speaking of losers like Michael Cohen, Lt. Gov. Duncan of the Peach State snivels to reporters that the ‘Georgia statehouse is absolutely less safe now because of Donald Trump.’  Lt. Gov. Duncan- you should not have worked to throw the election to “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his Chi-Com masters who now are YOUR masters.
  69. 2021 Friday L: Currently, the feds are investigating 37 people for their part in the deaths that occurred during the Capitol Hill Riots of January 6.  Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, she whose pendulous breasts droop down to her waist, says, ‘there will be prosecutions for ALL House members who aided the (Antifa/Black Lives Matter) ‘Trump mob’ in storming the building.  We guess this means that YOU, Madam Speaker, will stand at the head of the line seeing as how YOU and ONLY YOU are in charge of the Capitol Hill PD.  Steven Sund, outgoing Capitol Hill police chief begged for help on at least SIX occasions with no help coming which means YOU stopped help from coming which means BLOOD is on YOUR HANDS.  We await YOUR prosecution! 
  70. 2021 Friday M: President Donald J. Trump orders U.S. Military Command for the Middle East to incorporate Israel into its organization so as to hasten Arab-Israeli military cooperation in defending against the Iranian scum.   Meanwhile, Apple CEO Tim Cook says that ‘Parler might make it back online provided they do something about moderating (censoring) content.  Elsewhere, the National Rifle Association files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy protections.  Finally, Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas rips ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden for his plagiarizing yet again someone else’s work- the COVID-19 Relief Bill. 
  71. 2021 Friday N: Elsewhere, the Atlanta Falcons hire Tennessee Titans OC Arthur Smith as their next head coach.   Note- we would love to see Matt Ryan make it to another super bowl.    Speaking of the NFL, two games tomorrow in the Divisional Round- L.A. Rams @ Green Bay Packers at 1:35 P.M. and Baltimore
    Ravens @ the Buffalo Bills @ 5:15 P.M.  Then on Sunday, we have two more games- Cleveland Browns @ Kansas City Chiefs @ 12:05 P.M. and Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ New Orleans Saints @ 3:40 P.M.
  72. 2021 Friday O: Here are the results for tonight’s massive Mega Millions Draw #1625 with a pot of around $725 million at stake: 03, 11, 12, 38, 43, and Mega 15.  Out of 643,493 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers BUT NO MEGA for a prize of $1,225,193.  Meanwhile, Alex Azar, Health and Human Services secretary offers his resignation, citing the Capitol Hill Riots as his reason for leaving the administration.   Elsewhere, we learn today that Bill Gates of Microsoft fame is the largest owner of private farmland in the United States with 242,000 acres.  Finally, in the waning days of the Trump administration, an asteroid the size of the Empire State Building, about 4.4 million miles from the Earth which is about 18 times the average distance between our planet and the moon.
  73. 2021 Friday P: The government of Morocco awards President Donald J. Trump the Order of Mohammad, the nation’s highest decoration, for his work in creating a framework of peace for Arab nations and Israel.  The ceremony occurred at the White House in a private ceremony.  Congratulations, Mr. President.  Let’s see if your successor keeps the framework of the Abraham Accords in place or tosses them on the rubbish heap and returns to brown-nosing the Palestinians.  Elsewhere, One America News reports growing evidence that foreign nations such as communist China interfered in our elections, NOT just in the 2020 Presidential Election but also in several state elections.  WHY aren’t the liberals braying about ‘ELECTION INTERFERENCE?’  Because we believe Beijing and their bought-and-paid-for stooges in the Democratic Party and among the RINO wing of the GOP conspired with them to deny President Trump his much-deserved second term.   Meanwhile, Norway reports 11 deaths connected to the vaccine for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.
  74. 2022 Saturday: Stick around for the latest…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next live effort by Fairport Convention was the wonderful “Off the Desk” (June 14, 2006). As always, these musical veterans deliver a powerful live show that sees them draw millions of fans to their music year after year.  People hunger for the OLD music because much of the new music- ahem, like Maroon Five, the Jonas Brothers, and other twits SUCKS. The band included virtuoso Andy Guttridge (acoustic guitars), Ric Sanders (violins), Dave Pegg (acoustic and electric basses, and tenor mandola), Simon Nichol (guitars and vocals), Gerry Conway (drums), and Chris Leslie (mandolins, fiddles, cellos, and flutes).  The two discs contain 22 classic tunes as only this veteran band can deliver which is why we encourage everyone to rush out to their favorite record shop and pick it up.  You will be glad you did, that we guarantee.

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.

55. 2020 Thursday: In the morning, a disheveled and highly incoherent Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-CA, rambled on about how she was going to send the ‘impeachment articles’ to the Senate when she ‘damned well pleased.’ It is becoming clearer and clearer to all non-senile onlookers that the Speaker has little to no clue as to where she is or what she is saying.

  46. 2011 Sunday: To quell rioting, the Algerian government cuts food prices and promises to punish those responsible for starting the uprising.  Elsewhere, exiled Iranians gather together outside the Iranian Embassy in London, England, to protest attacks on other exiled Iranians living in Iraq.  Iran does not give a flying f**k about what anyone feels, says, or does.  If the thugs have it out for you, they are going after you.  We should nuke them.

  49. 2014 Thursday: According to Brainy History, following a federal judge striking down a ban on same-sex marriage in Utah, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) had to place a lower court ruling on hold because Utah planned to launch an appeal.  Elsewhere, ISIS and al-Qaida thugs operating in Syria attempt to identify Americans and Westerners who have recently visited the delightful, war-torn country, to recruit them to carry out jihadist attacks when they return to their homelands.
  50. 2015 Friday:  French police kill two of the jihadists that attacked Charlie Hebdo magazine where the two Islamists murdered 12 and wounded another 11 for their portrayal of the degenerate Prophet Mohammad.  The third terrorist turned himself in to keep the cops from killing him on sight like the mongrel cur he is. 
  51. 2016 Saturday: The United States sends a ‘message’ to North Korea, belligerent as ever, with a B-52 flyover.  This is in answer to Kim Jong Un’s claim that he exploded a hydrogen bomb.

  53. 2018 Tuesday: Following the passage of legislation the preceding month, the first homosexual marriages begin occurring in Australia.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump cuts a program that permits 200,000 El Salvadorans to continue living in the United States.  Another campaign promise fulfilled.   However, in a victory for illegal aliens, a federal judge blocks President Trump from ending the DACA program.
  54. 2019 Wednesday: President Donald J. Trump conducts an Oval Office address regarding the shutdown of the federal government and his need for funds to construct the southern border wall.  Trying to fulfill yet another promise.
  55. 2020 Thursday: In the morning, a disheveled and highly incoherent Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-CA, rambled on about how she was going to send the ‘impeachment articles’ to the Senate when she ‘damned well pleased.’  It is becoming clearer and clearer to all non-senile onlookers that the Speaker has little to no clue as to where she is or what she is saying.  Even Senate Democrats- like Sen. Dianne Feinstein and Sen. Joe Manchin are saying ‘put up or shut up.’  Meanwhile, in Iran, it now seems likely that a Ukrainian jetliner that went down around the same time the IRG was shooting its missile ‘barrage’ in the direction of Iraq was shot down by the Russian-built Iranian air defenses.  Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau basically admitted as much seeing as how 63 of the 179 aboard were his citizens.  What are you going to do it, Mr. Prime Minister?  Most likely, NOTHING.  
  56. 2021 Saturday: Today is Wildcard Weekend in the NFL in our expanded playoff format: (1) Indianapolis Colts, 24 (11-6) @ Buffalo Bills. 27 (14-3) (2) Los Angeles Rams, 30 (11-6) @ Seattle Seahawks, 20 (12-5) and (3) Tampa Bay, 31 (12-5) @ Washington Redskins, 23 (7-10).  Alex Smith did not start at QB for the ‘Skins but Taylor Heinicke did and what a game the kid played.  It was fabulous.  Note- it’s time for the Seahawks to fire Coach Pete Carroll.  He’s a bum.  Also stick around for tonight’s Super Lotto and Powerball drawings.
  57. 2021 Saturday A: BIG TECH bans the new social media app Parler over claims it does not moderate its site for ‘unacceptable content.’  Folks, when BIG TECH crippled Alex Jones and Infowars, everyone should have woken up and taken note.  This is the United States of America, NOT the People’s Republic of China- we have freedom of speech rights here.  Period.  Elsewhere, “America’s Mayor” Rudy Giuliani urges President Trump to declassify ALL records on the ‘Russian collusion scandal’ and on ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden’s ties to the Chi-Coms.  We also want to see the UFO files, too, Mr. President.  Meanwhile, an incoming congresswoman from Illinois finds herself in ‘hot water’ for having made comments tying Democrats to Nazis.  Then, ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden begins blasting the GOP by tying them…guess what: Nazis.  It never ends.
  58. 2021 Saturday B: Washington, D.C. police are investigating a suspicious package found near the Capitol today.  Antifa left a bomb, perhaps?  You never know.  Meanwhile, Richard Barnett- the man who participating in storming the Capitol Building this past Wednesday and who first seated himself at Pelosi’s desk and then carried off her podium, turned himself into federal agents today.  Dimwit.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump- facing a second impeachment- confirms he won’t attend the inauguration of ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden on January 20.  This will make the 45th president the fourth president- following John Adams, John Quincy Adams, and Andrew Johnson- not to attend the inauguration of his successor.  Why should he?  It is clear the presidential election was a fraud.  ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden did not beat President Trump by an Electoral College vote of 306-232 nor did he win the votes of 80 million Americans.  Period.  Speaking of President Trump, noted liberal lawyer Alan Dershowitz says that ‘Trump did nothing wrong in his speech this past Wednesday.’  Perhaps he will defend him at his second impeachment trial?
  59. 2021 Saturday C: Speaking of the mob violence at the Capitol this past Wednesday, engineered by Antifa and Black Lives Matter human fecal matter, the Department of Justice says there are NO charges against President Trump for ‘incitement of violence.’  What we saw on Wednesday was a well-orchestrated false flag operation carried off by Antifa and BLM.  We must give credit where credit is due, and they did a hell of a job of it.  Elsewhere, President Donald Trump hints at the creation of a new social media platform.  Mr. President, you will need to create your own ‘Google,’ too, because there is NO freedom of speech if one does not control the servers upon which the platform exists.  Speaking of Twitter, Rudy Giuliani basically has labeled them a ‘fascist operation.’  In the same vein, Trump ally, Jason Miller, says, ‘if you don’t think they’re coming for you, you’re mistaken.’   Finally, 2020 was a bad year for the news media what with the loss of 30,000 or more jobs in the fake news industry.
  60. 2021 Saturday D: The Centers for Disease Control announce that 59-percent of all COVID-19 cases are caused by asymptomatic spread.   Meanwhile, a study shows coronavirus immunity lasts up to 8 months in 90-percent of patients.
  61. 2021 Saturday E: COVID-19 Daily Update:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 89,516,439 confirmed cases, +734,302, 1,924,004, confirmed deaths, +12,908, and 49,669,429 confirmed recoveries, +307,155.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 22,331,368 confirmed cases, up 281,916 from yesterday’s reporting, 375,039 confirmed deaths, UP 3,574, and 9,827,904 confirmed recoveries, UP 42,393.
  62. 2021 Saturday 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: 2,639,814 confirmed cases, 29,233 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 23,143 confirmed cases, 307 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 273,142 confirmed cases, 3,768 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Nevada: currently, they have 246,309 confirmed cases, 3,450 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 485,434 confirmed cases, 3,645 confirmed deaths, and 412,296 confirmed recoveries.
  63. 2021 Saturday G: Here are the results for tonight’s Super Lotto Draw #3524 with a jackpot of $10 million on the line: 03, 04, 17, 34, 39, and Mega 20.  Out of 118,277 winning tickets, the highest winners were EIGHT people who had FOUR plus the Mega for a prize of $2,687 apiece.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #810 with a BIG POT of $470 million up for grabs: 14, 26, 38, 45, 46, and Powerball 13.  Out of 280,550 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $37,117 apiece.
  64. 2022 Sunday: Friends, we encourage everyone to stick around today to discover whatever news arises that continues showing the stooges of Beijing- the Democratic Party- doing whatever it is they’re doing to tip our country into the camp of the Chi-Coms.  We cannot permit them to steal the country from we, the American people…then again, if we cannot beat them, we may have to join them and destroy them from within.  Hail, China!  Join me later today.

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.
