  73. 2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is dumping yet another Trump-era rule regarding the border, this one being that the collection of biometric data from illegal aliens along the border will now cease.  Thank you, Secretary Mayorkas.  (Note- and people wonder WHY everyone is buying firearms).  Speaking of Secretary Mayorkas, he lied to reporters earlier when he said that the numbers of illegals trying to cross into the country has gone way down and that the number of illegal alien minors has also decreased.
  74. 2021 Saturday G: Political News I– The U.S. Department of Justice has reaffirmed the war on ghost guns and will keep Joe Biden’s promise to enact sweeping gun reform (meaning gun control laws.  And they wonder as to WHY so many of us are buying guns, ammos, and accessories like flash and sound suppressants).  Next, census data shows that California’s population fell by more than 182,000 people in 2020 as people were fleeing the state in droves.  Speaking of California, now that it is becoming clear NO ONE wants Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom to remain as governor of the Golden State, the lightbulb has finally gone off over the dimwit’s head- he is now trying to do anything to save his job including making threats against all signers of the RECALL PETITION.  F**k you, Governor Newsom.

  77. 2021 Saturday J: Miscellaneous News I– The largest pipeline of gasoline in the United States- the 1,500-mile Colonia Pipeline- was shut down by unknown hackers.  Sounds like environmentalists did this.   Next, in the glorious city of New York, a woman and her three-year-old child were shot.  SHOT.  Elsewhere, Ernest Angley, a ‘controversial televangelist has died at the ripe old age of 99.  Finally, the religion of peace strikes again near a girls school in Kabul, Afghanistan, sending at least 30 people off to meet with Allah sooner than they planned and injuring loads of others.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The fourth album by the Band- “Cahoots”- came out on September 15, 1971 and would see the band beginning to slide a bit from the pinnacle they rapidly had climbed over the preceding years.  The album contained one bona fide hit- “Life is a Carnival”- but would not chart as well as the preceding three.  The band features the same quintet of Rick Danko (bass, vocals, and fiddle), Robbie Robertson (guitars and vocals), Levon Helm (drums, percussion, vocals, mandolins, and tambourines), Richard Manuel (pianos, organs, and vocals), and Garth Hudson (keyboards and saxophones). What we have for you today is the “Stage Fright 50th Anniversary Edition” (where the hell does the time go?), a deluxe version that came out on October 22, 2021.  We hope you will seek it out wherever you shop for the best in music because we love it and know that you will, too, especially with all the add-ons one gets as a bonus to the original tracks.  Enjoy.

  70. 2021 Thursday 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 by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.074 per gallon, $2.881 in Florida, $3.815 in Hawaii, and $3.502 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- New York: $2.978.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Ethiopia: $1.917 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,255,825,311,282 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  71. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, is suing the Biden regime over its refusal to deport criminal illegal aliens.  Excellent. Next, citizens living in border states in a recent poll show that people of ALL political parties believe that Joe Biden’s immigration policies (or lack thereof) are responsible for driving cases of the ‘VID as well as increasing human trafficking and the deaths of thousands.  We must secure our borders.
  72. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden Regime News I– The International Energy Agency- the IEA- has warned that Joe Biden’s policies are allowing the Chi-Coms to obtain greater control of dwindling rare mineral resources across the globe.   Meanwhile, Dr. Jill is meeting with military spouses during a stop in the Rocky Mountain State.  Next, the FAA is hitting unruly, mask-less passengers with massive fines.   In other Biden regime news, growing numbers of people are asking WHY the United States Postal Service now is SPYING on Americans’ social media posts?  Where the hell does the USPS get authority to do this?  Twilight Zone, folks, welcome to the modern-day Joe Biden regime police state.[xviii]   Finally, U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona says, ‘kids will be back in school full-time by September.’
  73. 2021 Thursday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– House GOP leaders send a letter to Centers for Disease Control- CDC- demanding answers as to ties between teachers’ unions and the CDC.  The educators unions seem to hold a great deal of power over what the CDC says, allows, and does.  Next, Moderna is testing a COVID-19 booster shot which the pharmaceutical company shows promise in combatting the various variants.   Speaking of the vaccines, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich says that the ‘Chi-Coms will be thrilled’ if the patents are stripped from BIG PHARMA’S vaccines as the communists will get their hands on them.[xix]  Elsewhere, Israel announces they believe they may have developed a drug that may cure COVID-19.  Thank God Joe Biden has no right to hand this information over to the Chi-Coms.
  74. 2021 Thursday I: Foreign News / Overseas News– Xi Jinping has self-bestowed another title atop his shoulders, “Helmsman.”  The last person to ‘wear this moniker’ was the late Mao Zedong.   What further proof does one need to understand this thug wants to be a global dictator?   Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Tony Blinken says that the U.S. will ‘stand with Ukraine against Russia.’  Boy, oh, boy.  In other fascinating news, former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says that ‘Russian involvement, if not influence or interference in Brexit.’  Uh, okay.
  75. 2021 Thursday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– One America News obtained a letter from the Department of Justice to the state of Arizona attempting to STOP the 2020 Election audit currently going on within that state right now.  U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland swears the audit ‘could intimidate voters?’  WTF?  That is crazy, how is seeking to verify the election as free of corruption and fraud intimidating to voters unless of course, the timid voters actively participated in the fraud?   Speaking of election fraud, legislators in Wisconsin are proposing their own version of an election reform bill.  Meanwhile, Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, signed into law the strongest election integrity bill in the United States.  God bless you, governor.
  76. 2021 Thursday K: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– The upcoming new Superman movie will feature a black actor playing the man of steel.  Awesome.  Will the next Black Panther be a white actor? 
  77. 2021 Thursday L: National Security News– well-known household name Honeywell has been fined for sharing U.S. Department of Defense data with foreign countries.  The fine is a mere $13 million so it would seem as though the Biden regime wants Honeywell to continue funneling national security information to the, uh, Chi-Coms.  Really? 
  78. 2021 Thursday M: Big Tech News– Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, is officially introducing his “Bust Up Big Tech Act,” aka BUBTA, an act with which to clean the clocks of social media titans and search engine leftist losers.  We have been personally assaulted by both social media and BIG TECH and would love to see both destroyed and their individual parts plastered around the world.   In other pathetic BIG TECH NEWS, even though there is NO direct connection between ‘From the Desk of President Donald J. Trump’ and Twitter, Jack Dorsey has closed the account.  WTF?   Speaking of Twitter, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, blasts Twitter for temporarily suspending one of her aides for no particular reason.   Moving on, a member of the Facebook ‘Oversight Board’ says that the referral on President Donald J. Trump was ‘lazy.’  An overseer at Facebook says the social media site should be less politically loaded (because we hope you guys are going to get broken up…for good).
  79. 2021 Thursday N: Political News I– The state of South Carolina adds the firing squad to its list of execution methods which also include the electric chair and lethal injection.  However, seeing as how namby-pamby suppliers of drugs for lethal injection many times will not sell the necessary items to states using them to carry out capital punishment.  Next Donald Trump Jr. says the Dems ‘want his father silenced because they know he resonates with the American people.’  Meanwhile, Senator Chuck Grassley, R-IA, is upping pressure to get to the bottom of Climate Czar John F. “Lurch” Kerry’s numerous Logan Act violations.  We want to know, too, why this POS is able to collude with an ENEMY who hates our country, and no one does anything about it? 
  80. 2021 Thursday O: Political News II– Former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, DS, is colluding with a far-left Swiss billionaire so he can get funds to screw up gerrymandering efforts in states where changes in proportional representation and loss or gain of new House sets is occurring or is set to occur.   In other news, Rep. Steve Scalise, R-LA 1st congressional district, says of colleague, Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, is focused way too much on the past and not on the present and future.  We hope she is out next week.   NO MORE RINOS.  In other hilarious news, Governor Gretchen “Gravel Gertie” Whitmer, DS-MI, is set to receive a ‘profiles in courage award’ or some such dreck for her ‘handling of the pandemic in Michigan.’  What a joke.  This dingbat should be in prison.  In other news, Caitlyn Jenner- in response to critics going after her now that she is seeking Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom’s seat- says, “I move on.”  There you go.  
  81. 2021 Thursday P: Political News III–  A bar owner in California was busted for selling fake Chi-Vi vaccine documentation to people seeking them.  Next, Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DSPUSA-MN 5th congressional district says, ‘it’s time to grow a backbone and end the filibuster.’  F— you.   Next, New York’s Sheldon Silver, former Democratic speaker of the state assembly, has been ordered to return to federal prison.  Elsewhere, TenCent is negotiating with U.S. authorities to keep its investment in the U.S.  Meanwhile, the FBI says they have close to 500 (440) arrests in the BIG FALSE FLAG OPERATION the Democrats and their storm-troopers of Antifa and Black Lives Matter ran on January 06, 2021, at the U.S. Capitol.  Yes, there were Trump supporters there but it’s clear to anyone with political knowledge that most of the people were left-wing infiltrators who nearly pulled off a coup of sorts but eventually failed.  The only ones rotting in the D.C. hoosegow are Trumpers while the Antifa and BLM thugs have all been sprung and in the wind.
  82. 2022 Friday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album released by the Band was the self-titled, “The Band.”  Released on September 22, 1969, this album known as the “Brown Album” due to its album cover, was an even bigger hit their freshman debut.  Like their first album, it produced some powerful hits such as “Up on Cripple Creek” and “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down.”  Once again, the band featured Rick Danko (bass, vocals, and fiddle), Robbie Robertson (guitars and vocals), Levon Helm (drums, percussion, vocals, mandolins, and tambourines), Richard Manuel (pianos, organs, and vocals), and Garth Hudson (keyboards and saxophones).  What we have for you today is the “The Band 50th Anniversary Edition” (where the hell does the time go?), a deluxe version that came out on September 27, 2019.  This is a wonderful album, one we anticipate everyone will want to own because in this day and age of bullshit music, there is nothing more refreshing than a blast from the past such as the one we are promoting here.  Please seek it out and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure.

  67. 2018 Tuesday: President Donald J. Trump fires his Secretary of State Rex Tillerson via a Tweet.   From the very beginning, Secretary Tillerson has been an impediment to the Trump agenda.   Tillerson fell for the bull crap the left spread about the events of Charlottesville and what exactly President Trump said regarding that mess. 
  68. 2019 Wednesday: President Donald J. Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort receives and additional 43 months in jail on top of his 47 months for tax evasion and other Deep State-instigated and accused crimes.  Time for the president to pardon the guy.  Meanwhile, President Trump establishes the home of civil rights activists Medgar and Mylie Evers as a national monument in their hometown of Jackson, Mississippi.  Finally, POS California Governor Gavin Newsom- facing recall the following year- declares an indefinite moratorium on the death penalty claiming it discriminates against ‘marginalized communities.’
  69. 2020 Friday: Democrats and the Trump administration continue trying to hammer out a deal that will bring real relief to the American people combatting the Chinese-caused Wuhan Virus, aka COVID-19, which is sweeping the world.  The Democrats continue trying to expand the size of government and to stick in things like additional funding for abortion and other crazy things and the Trump administration and the GOP continue smacking them back and knocking them down.  What is up with the Democrats?  No one knows but they are a bunch of sick f**ks.  Meanwhile, President Trump addresses reporters at the White House and some of the assembled reporters seem eager to know if the president himself might be infected.  Horrible people.  Finally, the State Department ordered the Chinese ambassador to the United States to shut the hell up about trying to connect the U.S. Army to the outbreak of coronavirus that seemingly spilled out of that nation’s ONLY biowarfare lab.  The moratorium on air flights from Europe to the U.S. begins tonight at midnight.
  70. 2021 Saturday: DAY 53 of the BIDEN REGIME…these fools think they are going to confiscate our firearms.  They can try.  The DCCC is launching an ad blitz on television so the Biden administration can take a ‘victory lap’ as though somehow, THEY are the ones who created the vaccines and distributed them to the public.  In fact, they created a commercial showing every living ex-president and former first lady- with the exception of the Trumps!- going on about how miraculous it was we produced several COVID-19 vaccines.  Wow.  Talk about envy, jealousy, and hatred (and do you know what?  It won’t surprise us to see Jeb Bush throw his hat into the ring in 2023.  We agree with what the Reverend Jesse Jackson said several years back: ‘stay out’ d-bushes!’  Amen.).   Note- Joe Biden held a Democrats-only celebration of the ‘Chi-Vi Relief Bill’ in the White House Rose Garden yesterday which pissed off all the Republicans.
  71. 2021 Saturday A: The U.S. Department of the Treasury and the Internal Revenue Service announce that the Biden COVID-19 relief checks are getting underway, perhaps as early as this weekend.  We recall Joe saying before he became president that everyone was going to get $2,000 checks and not $1,400 checks.  Then, they combined the Joe’s payments with President Trump’s payments which means we already got the $600 and now the $1,400 is on the way.  What a scam.  This is taxpayer money, so we are getting our own money back PLUS we’ll have to pay taxes on the money back to the government.  This is the Democratic Party’s infamous money-go-round.  Now, they’re talking about a $4 trillion infrastructure bill- who’s going to do the majority of the work?  Chi-Coms like they do the California High-Speed Rail boondoggle.  All a scam…
  72. 2021 Saturday B: Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says, ‘the Dems are still seeking to take control of U.S. Elections.’  We know this, Mitch.  The question is this: HOW will they circumvent the U.S. Constitution and when H.R. 1 arrives at the U.S. Supreme Court under challenge, what will Chief Justice John Roberts do?  Meanwhile, Republican senators continue badgering their Democrat counterparts and the Biden administration as to when they are going to remove the fencing and razor wire surrounding the U.S. Capitol and White House and when the troops are going to go home?  That phony POS General Russell Honoré says the Capitol’s defense requires 2,500 troops at all times around it; yet only 500 have volunteered to remain?  We guess the ones wanting to return home must be the evil Trumpsters the general seeks to excise like cancer from the U.S. military.  He should remember this: there are more of us than there are of YOU,  general.
  73. 2021 Saturday C: Part of General Honoré’s plan is to remove guns from the American people.  The Democrat sponsored bill seeks to ban ALL military-style assault weapons and magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.  Senator Dianne Feinstein, D-CA, claims the American people who already own such guns and accessories will be able to keep them, but we know that’s all bulls**t.  If they get this through without pushback, those ‘rights’ will vanish, too.  They also want background checks which they always demand but everyone who gets firearms- unless they’re thugs- undergoes background checks.  We prefer ‘somebody stole our guns.’  F**k anyone seeking to take away our 2nd amendment rights.
  74.  2021 Saturday D: Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is backing a new process in his home state that would change how vacancies would be filled within the state if an opening arises.  It would strip the governor- who in this case happens to be Democrat Andy Beshear- of the ability to put a politician of his choice into a vacancy should one arise and permit the heavily GOP-controlled legislature in the driver’s seat.  We like this and we hope the bill becomes law.  The only reason Beshear won the seat back in 2018 is that everyone despised the Republican who held the seat- Matt Bevin- at the time.  
  75. 2021 Saturday E: The FCC designates FIVE Chi-Com tech companies as inimical to U.S. national security interests: Huawei, ZTE, Hytera Communications, Hangzhou Hikvision Digital Technology and Dahua Technology.  Each of these companies serves the Ministry of State Security in Beijing, monitoring the globe on behalf of the Chi-Com leadership.  Not good.  In other U.S. national security news, the southern border is still under assault by a tidal wave of illegal aliens from Central America as well as from across the world.  In all of 2019, the Trump administration had ONLY 2,600 illegal alien minors in custody while the Biden administration in just 53 days has 3,200 illegal aliens brats locked up in over-filled containers doing nothing.  Where are all the Democrats screaming and hollering about their mistreatment?  Where are the fake news reporters?  Why has the Biden administration forbidden cameras in the facilities?  We say load them onto buses and deport them NOW.   Even the Mexican president is blasting Joe Biden.  “Trump did a far better job dealing with illegal immigration” or words to that effect.
  76. 2021 Saturday F: The U.S. Department of Justice plans on filing more than 400 cases against the ‘insurrectionists’ that stormed the U.S. Capitol Building on January 06, 2021.  We suspect the Antifa, and Black Lives Matter scum will somehow be released on their own recognizance whereas any true Trump supporters will remain in solitary confinement after the judge throws the book at them.  Such are fascist countries.   In other Joe Biden news, the National Parks Service BANS fireworks at Mt. Rushmore this year.   Meanwhile, Dr. Scott Gottlieb who led the FDA during the Trump administration says, “Americans will be gathering before the Fourth of July.”  Joe Biden had said earlier in the week that we would be ‘lucky’ if we could gather in small groups.  F**k that, too.  The country is getting ready to erupt.  Soon.
  77. 2021 Saturday G: In other news, Vice President Mike Pence and Second Lady Karen Pence announce the birth of their first grandchild.  Next, apparently the Portland, Oregon, cops took the fight to the Antifa human scum and kept them in check after a rough couple of days before.  We hope they begin cracking some skulls and run these scumbags out of the state.  Elsewhere, the Russian cops detain 200 people who were attending an opposition forum.  We learned yesterday that Putin’s No. 1 critic- Alexei Navalny- was moved from a prison near Moscow to an undisclosed black site.  These people want to see him freed.  Now, they probably are going to be joining him.
  78. 2021 Saturday H: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 119,469,346 confirmed cases, +445,489, 2,647,229, confirmed deaths, +8,342, and 67,621,472 confirmed recoveries, +252,910.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,633,697 confirmed cases, up 126,711 from yesterday’s reporting, 538,918 confirmed deaths, UP 3,160, and 115,379,301 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile drooling POS.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 210,441 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- Senile Joe, in another 12 days, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the frigging ‘VID.
  79. 2021 Saturday 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: 3,616,872 confirmed cases, 55,336 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,646 confirmed cases, 450 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 351,419 confirmed cases, 5,183 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- North Dakota, aka the Peace Garden State: currently, they have 100,973 confirmed cases, 1,488 confirmed deaths, and 98,797 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 817,799 confirmed cases, 5,988 confirmed deaths, and 776,099 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Peru, the home of the Incan Empire at least until Francisco Pizarro arrived on scene: 1,402,610 cases of the old Hubei Hooey, 48,664 confirmed deaths, and 1,308,175 confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, why even bother- they’re liars. 
  80. 2021 Saturday J: Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.824 per gallon, $3.543 in Hawaii, and $3.252 in Washington state.  Thank you, Joe, how about allowing fracking to continue as well as the Keystone XL Pipeline?  It would be beneficial for the people of this country.   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,048,361,528,794 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.  Cloward and Piven running amok.  The country is going to implode.
  81. 2021 Saturday K: Here are the results for tonight’s Super Lotto Draw #3542 with a $28 million jackpot on the line: 03, 07, 08, 13, 21, and Mega 19.  Out of 117,459 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $39,731.  The 5/5 ticket was sold at La Positas Liquor & Market in Santa Barbara, CA 93105.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #828 with a $169 million jackpot up for grabs- 05, 11, 51, 56, 61, and Powerball 02.  Out of 76,264 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers PLUS the Powerball for a prize of $10,854 apiece.
  82. 2021 Saturday L: Famed middleweight boxing champion “Marvelous Marvin” Hagler died from unexpected causes at age 66.  At one time, he would hold the WBA, WBC, IBF, and The Ring magazine middleweight boxing titles of the world while compiling a pro record of 67 fights, 62 wins (52 KOs), 3 losses, and 2 draws.
  83. 2022 Sunday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Levon Helm returned with his third solo album, “American Son,” on June 17, 1980, which did much to boost the singer/musician’s solo career.  There is no questioning his unique powerful voice, Helm could belt them out with the best of them and sang many of the Band’s most notable songs.  Here- like the best of vocalists, he reinterprets the works of others and does one hell of a job.  Joining Levon Helm (drums, vocals, harmonicas) are Buddy Emmons (perhaps the foremost pedal steel guitarist of our day), Muscle Shoals, Alabama, session drummer Jerry Carrigan, and an ever-growing cast of numerous other talented musicians and vocalists to round out the sound.  We hope you will seek this one out wherever you shop for the absolute best in music.  We think you will enjoy it as much as we do which is a great deal.  Seek it out now.

ENDNOTES:

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

[ii] We look forward to promoting the music of Thin Lizzy when we promote the music of U2, sometime within the next 4-5 years.  We hope you will be with us when we do.

ELECTION DAY IS COMING AND IT’S EXTREMELY IMPORTANT

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

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

  84. 2021 Monday B: GOP lawmakers are asking the Federal Elections Commission if it’s permissible to use campaign donations to fund bodyguards.  Meanwhile, House Dems are trying to bully House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA, into stripping Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA, of her committee assignments.  In other disturbing news, it now appears that Texas Senator Ted Cruz, Republican, has drunk from the well of Kool-Aid and last week threw President Donald J. Trump under the bus blaming the 45th president’s ‘speech’ for what happened on January 6, 2021.  NOT an effective way to seek to remain a stalwart in the GOP there, senator, especially when evidence continues mounting showing that the riot was planned weeks ahead of the day of the mob riots.  We know the pipe bombs were planted the previous day.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

TODAY IN HISTORY, TUESDAY FEBRUARY 01, 2022, BLOG POST #4,406

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

Monday, February 01, 2021, Today in History:  

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

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


Tuesday, February 01, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

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

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

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

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

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

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

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

  68. 2017 Tuesday A: Elsewhere, the U.S. Senate confirms Elaine Chao as the 18th U.S. Secretary of Transportation.  She, of course, is the daughter of a Chinese shipping tycoon and the wife of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.  Looks like “Cocaine Mitch” has a spy close to the 45th president.  As she assumes office, her predecessor- the 17.1st Acting U.S. Transportation Secretary Michael Huerta leaves office.  Huerta first began serving as the acting secretary on January 20, 2017, while Secretary Chao would serve from today until January 11, 2021.
  69. 2018 Wednesday: The district attorney of San Francisco, George Gascón says that the city by the bay is going to retroactively apply its new laws regarding the now legal use of marijuana to 5,000 old convictions which is the correct thing to do.  Far too many people in the 1960s like Dino Valenti and David Freiberg of Quicksilver Messenger Service[xiii] served time for unfair convictions.  Usually, we don’t agree with most of what comes out of Frisco but this time, yes, yes, we do.
  70. 2019 Thursday: The European Parliament votes to recognize Juan Guaidó as the legitimate ruler in Caracas which leads the Maduro regime to begin arresting foreign journalists from Spain, France, and neighboring Columbia.  The Venezuelan secret police are going out and rounding up everyone they deem to be a threat.
  71. 2020 Friday: Today is the day- or so millions of Americans hope- that the impeachment farce of President Donald J. Trump will move to a vote for acquittal or if the Democrats are lucky to get what they seek- witnesses will occur.  Let us hope for the former and not the latter.  By mid-day, the Senate voted 51-49 against calling witnesses, deflating the sputtering Democratic Party balloon.  Two Republicans- Susan Collins of Maine and Mitt Romney of Utah voted with the Democrats.  Meanwhile, the first Democrat to enter the race for the 2020 Democratic Party’s presidential nomination- former Maryland Congressman John Delaney and seemingly decent guy became the 16th Democrat to bail from the race.  He entered the race- get this- on July 28, 2017.  Oh, well.  Elsewhere, the Kung Flu continues spreading across the globe.  Italy reports its first couple of cases and prohibits cruise ships from offloading thousands of passengers.  Democrats in the U.S. tell everyone to go to “Chinatown,” to ‘go hug Chinese people.’  That advice would devastate Italy and other WOKE Western nations.  
  72. 2021 Sunday: DAY TWELVE OF THE BIDEN REGIME: the Biden White House says that IT’S going to investigate the GameStop matter.  Uh, excuse us, Joe, isn’t that the job of the Treasury or Justice Departments?   Meanwhile, California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom now is coming under verbal assault from Democrats besides Republicans as the numbers demanding his recall continue increasing by the day.  This loser- Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s nephew- is going to lose his seat.   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump and the GOP have raised $255.4 million in the two months since Election Day 2020.  Elsewhere, 39.6 million Americans underwent FBI background checks for gun purchases.  Heck,  some of the chef-bloggers here bought guns last year, there is NO way we wouldn’t, especially when you consider all the left-wing Marxist violence in the streets.
  73. 2021 Sunday A:  Officer Brian Sicknick- the Capitol Hill police officer slain by Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs during the storming of Capitol Hill on January 6 will lie in state in the Rotunda in the building where he served later this week.  Elsewhere, we learn- no big surprise- that 98-percent of Twitter employees donated to Democrats.  Go figure.  Meanwhile, Claudia Tenney’s lead in her New York Congressional race is now becoming insurmountable and we expect a judge early this upcoming week to announce her the ‘winner.’  Next, President Donald J. Trump once again has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.   Finally, the Arizona state senate is hiring its own investigators to delve into the rampant election fraud that occurred in that state.        
  74. 2021 Sunday B: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 102,871,614 confirmed cases, +468,367, 2,225,773, confirmed deaths, +11,160, and 56,981,674 confirmed recoveries, +326,805.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 26,423,597 confirmed cases, up 140,106 from yesterday’s reporting, 446,010 confirmed deaths, UP 2,481, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- same as reported earlier this week.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic old fool.  NOW.
  75. 2021 Sunday C: 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: 3,309,463 confirmed cases, 40,697 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,070 confirmed cases, 410 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 315,448 confirmed cases, 4,368 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- the Northern Marianas Islands: currently, they have 131 confirmed cases, 2 confirmed deaths, and 32 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 643,435 confirmed cases, 4,796 confirmed deaths, and 572,511 confirmed recoveries.   
  76. 2021 Sunday D: Warnings are being raised about Chi-Com megacorporation BGI Group, an entity that ostensibly seeks to process data from COVID-19 tests from around the world all for a generous price and plenty of donations where and when necessary to open the doors for them.  In exchange, they collect biodata of U.S. and global citizens which then is shipped back to the Chi-Coms who then store this data for future use.  Anytime the Chi-Coms say they want to ‘help’ a country is when everyone must awaken, take note, and begin working to push back against these totalitarian, fascist-communist thugs.  We must be aware of everything the Chi-Coms seek to do with U.S. biodata as you can be sure they are going to use it against the American people, NOT to help them as they proclaim.
  77. 2021 Sunday E: BIG NFL NEWS- L.A. Rams quarterback Jared Goff has been traded to the Detroit Lions in exchange for Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford.  The Lions will also receive two 1st round and one 3rd round draft pick.  NO PRO BOWL THIS YEAR THANKS TO THE CHI-COMS AND THEIR FLIPPING VIRUS.
  78. 2022 Monday: Stick around for the news of the day…

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

ENDNOTES:

[i] Just like what the Democrats are attempting to do in 2020 as they try to remove President Donald J. Trump from office and to subordinate the office of the presidency- head of the Executive Branch- to the House speaker in the Legislative Branch.  How well did things work out for Europe in the 1930s-1940s?  Not so good.

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

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

[iv] We presented the music of Roxy Music at the secondary blog and hope to do it at the main blog sometime within the next 3 years. At the secondary blog, we began promoting the music of this famed British band as well as of Bryan Ferry, Andy Mackay, and Phil Manzanera beginning on Wednesday, September 07, 2016 through several successive months.  We hope you will seek them out.

[v] We promoted the music of the great California rock band, Spirit- and the music of its members- beginning on Monday, 18-June-2012 through Friday, 10-August-2012.  We hope you will seek this band out and add it to your growing collection of top-quality rock music. This included the music of Jo Jo Gunne.

[vi] 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.

[vii] 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.

[viii] We expect to present the music of the Jackson Five and Michael Jackson sometime in 2025-2026 so please stay tuned for future developments.

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

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

348. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, DECEMBER 14, 2021

69. 2020 Monday E: West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin urges passage of the $908 billion COVID-19 relief bill, but no movement is in sight as House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi seems to be in no mood for helping ANY American with financial aid, ONLY ILLEGAL ALIENS. The Chi-Vi economic toll affects both RED and BLUE states equally, yet very few want to help the American people.

  57. 2013 Saturday: China’s first lunar rover, the Yutu, makes the first ‘soft’ landing on the moon since 1976; Yutu is the third robotic lunar rover in existence.  Meanwhile, the last Australian combat troops leave Afghanistan on this date.

Climate Change Conference, nearly 200 nations join in signing an emissions reduction accord that requires them to post their plans online, which will allow the ‘public’ to pressure non-compliant nations to keep and to strengthen their commitments.  What a load of crap, Global Warming-Climate Change is a bullshit science. 
  59. 2015 Monday:  As all hell continues breaking loose in Syria, President Barack Hussein Obama says, “We are hitting ISIL harder than ever.”  Yeah, right.  Meanwhile, as ongoing U.S. airstrikes in the s-hole nation of Yemen continue, killing at least 19 civilians in the recent attacks, peace talks between the Yemeni government, Houthi rebels, and other interested parties in the region commence.
  60. 2016 Wednesday: Following reports of an ‘enemies list’ at the U.S. Department of Energy goes viral and ginned up outrage explodes around the country the Trump transition teams distances itself from the incendiary report.  Look, if there are loads of Greens in there, throw them out.  Meanwhile, as the Obama administration’s ‘Trump-Russia collusion bogus scandal’ gets underway, leaked reports claim that incoming National Security Adviser Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, Ret. ‘shared classified information with British and Australian officials (who we will learn in 2020 were in on the plot).
  61. 2017 Thursday: The Federal Communications Commission votes 3-2 to repeal the Net Neutrality rules imposed by the Obama administration.  Meanwhile, as budget talks continue, the Republicans are worried they might have defections on their side of the aisle.   Speaking of Republicans, House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-WI, is considering retirement at the end of the year.  Elsewhere, in Mogadishu, Somalia, the so-called ‘religion of peace’- Islam- strikes again as a suicide bomber kills at least 18 police trainees at a parade honoring them.
  62. 2018 Friday: President Donald J. Trump names OMB Director and acting director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Mick Mulvaney as his next chief of staff.   Mulvaney will replace retired Gen.

  64. 2020 Monday:  Electors across the country meet today to determine who will carry the state’s presidential and vice-presidential votes to Washington, D.C. for the final Electoral College vote next month.  Republicans in battleground states plan to send alternative electors to represent them seeing as how several states had corrupt elections conducted by equally corrupt machines and election staff. White House advisor Stephen Miller says, ‘alternative electors is the way to go.’  We shall see what we shall see.  When the Electoral College meets, we expect to see Biden 306 and Trump 232 in the count.  Yes, the Dems and their Chi-Com masters STOLE this election.
  65. 2020 Monday A: Anyhow, as President Donald J. Trump and his followers continue saying, “It’s not over,” most people are coming to the conclusion that “Pro-China Joe” Biden is the next ‘president-elect.’  Meanwhile, as Georgians prepare to vote in January’s run-off elections, far-left-wing racist bigot (and shadow governor) Stacey Abrams reports she has 1.2 million absentee voters ready to go while currently, hundreds of citizens of the Peach State are already lining up to early-vote.  Folks, the Senate is lost.  Elsewhere, Michigan conducts a forensic audit of Canada’s Dominion Voting Systems machines and discovers what should be a disqualifying factor in throwing out the entire vote in that state: the allowable error in the machines is supposed to be NO MORE than .0008% but in the machines election officials used, the error rate was a shocking 68%.  This means the entire election is fraudulent and should be tossed.
  66. 2020 Monday B: The Wall Street Journal reports that the “Trump challenge is over.”  In the same vein, U.S. Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr says his boss is like a ‘deposed king ranting.’  Then, he resigned his office and said he will be gone before Christmas.  Loyalty.  One must admire it.  Speaking of ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden, we hear today that failed Midwestern former mayor and failed presidential candidate Mayor Pete Buttigieg heads the list to become the next secretary of the U.S. Department of Education.  Hell, Joe, why didn’t you appoint him your next U.S. ambassador to Iran (when you reopen our embassy there)?  Meanwhile, the ‘president-elect’ tells his supporters to stop with the calls for ‘defunding the police’ as it is costing them the support of the American people.
  67. 2020 Monday C: On the international front, we learn that the Chi-Coms have at least 2 million spies, honeypots, and intelligence agents inserted into governments, universities, corporations, and who knows?  Maybe even here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM.  Time to begin finding and removing these skunks like California Congressman Eric Swalwell, Democrat.   Speaking of the Chi-Coms, President Donald J. Trump says that it’s concerns about them that will cause him to veto the Defense Department spending bill soon to come to his desk.   Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the ‘Chi-Coms are the number one security threat to the United States.’  Watch “Pro-China Joe” welcome them to the White House along with Vladimir Putin and other thugs who want to destroy our country.  Elsewhere, Russian hackers breach the U.S. Treasury and Commerce Departments.  Not good.   We also learn that YouTube, Gmail, and Google were hit by some sort of outage which could be the Russkies, too.
  68. 2020 Monday D: In New York City, law enforcement offers a reward of $60,000 for information leading to the identification and arrest of the scumbag(s) responsible for the death of one-year-old toddler Carmelo Duncan who was hit by a stray round.   Meanwhile, we learn that last night’s attack on a cathedral in New York City was caused by what appears to have been a terrorist of some kind.
  69. 2020 Monday E: West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin urges passage of the $908 billion COVID-19 relief bill, but no movement is in sight as House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi seems to be in no mood for helping ANY American with financial aid, ONLY ILLEGAL ALIENS.  The Chi-Vi economic toll affects both RED and BLUE states equally, yet very few want to help the American people.  Speaking of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, vaccinations in the U.S. are underway.  Note of interest: the ‘Reverend’ Al Sharpton, noted left-wing loser was caught in a luxury building NOT WEARING A MASK.  Send the POS to the gulag.
  70. 2020 Monday F: Some nitwit asked former Vice President (and current Green Meanie) Al Gore had any regrets about conceding to George W. Bush to which, he said, “NO.”  Took you long enough, Al.  Meanwhile, adviser to President Donald J. Trump, Dick Morris, told John Bachman of Newsmax that the Democrats ‘pre-emptively put the fear of God into the U.S. Supreme Court with all this talk of court-packing.’  We always knew Chief Justice John Roberts was a coward.  Elsewhere, My Pillow guy Mike Lindell says “Fox News had to be in on it” meaning how the Democrats STOLE the 2020 Presidential Election from Trump and gave it to Biden.  Speaking of President Trump, he is appointing as many of his allies to various federal posts that incoming Biden-Harris administration won’t be able to topple or overturn.
  71. 2020 Monday G: As for the Beijing Bug, here are the numbers for the CHI-VI, you know, COVID-19 Chinese Bat Flu Virus Crisis, the pandemic they started but still try to blame on the U.S.:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 72,221,634 confirmed cases, +571,758, 1,612,014, confirmed deaths, +7,498, and 47,218,235 confirmed recoveries, +406,451.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Xi Jinping Bat Flu pandemic: 16,477,271 confirmed cases, up 155,120 from yesterday’s reporting, 302,141 confirmed deaths, UP 1,243, and 7,478,028 confirmed recoveries, UP 34,127.
  72. 2020 Monday H: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 1,600,338 confirmed cases, 21,054 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 19,512 confirmed cases, 274 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 209,442 confirmed cases, 3,047 confirmed deaths (for some unknown reason, less than last week’s count), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Vermont, currently, they have 5,857 confirmed cases, 96 confirmed deaths, and 3,603 confirmed recoveries which seems to be the way of the world at present  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife have moved there: 359,070 confirmed cases, 3,004 confirmed deaths, and 338,321 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at another nation: Columbia: they have 1,425,774 confirmed cases of the CHI-VI, 39,043 confirmed deaths and 1,335,517 confirmed recoveries.
  73. 2020 Monday I: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 29,861.55, DOWN 184.82 points (-0.62%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  12,440.04, UP 62.17 points (+0.50%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,647.49, DOWN 57.97 points (-0.44%).  Price of GOLD: $1,831.60 per troy oz., -0.50 (-0.03%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $23.98 per troy oz., -0.067 (-0.28%).  Price of PLATINUM: $1,018.60 per troy oz., +1.20 (+0.12%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,318.90 per troy oz., -14.20 (-0.61%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.52 per #, -0.0115 (-0.37%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $46.95, -0.04 (-0.09%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.55 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.82 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.94 Afghan Afghani.
  74. 2020 Monday J: Sports News- the Cleveland Indians announce they are going to change their name to something ‘less offensive.’  Nothing wrong with the name, maybe they just need to change the logo of Chief Wahoo.   As far as sports teams with Native American names left, we have the NFL’s Kansas City Chiefs, the MLB’s Atlanta Braves, and the NHL’s Chicago Blackhawks.  The last one said there’s NO way they are going to change their name.  We shall see.  Meanwhile, we have Monday Night Football’s game tonight: (16) Baltimore Ravens, 47 (8-5) @ Cleveland Browns, 42 (9-4) Monday Night 5:15 P.M.
  75. 2020 Monday K: Final news of the evening- murder rates double in the city of Chicago.  Democrats in control, NO WONDER.  Shame on you, Mayor Lori “Space Alien” Lightfoot.  Elsewhere, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue says of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka AOC, aka Baby Evita, aka “The Fly,” ‘thinks she is living in another country and not the United States.’  We wish she would return to whatever s-hole country from which, she came. Meanwhile, a U.S. Court of Appeals questions the Department of Justice’s drive to ban TikTok, the Chi-Com-intelligence-gathering ap.  Next, President Donald J. Trump appoints Roy Bernardi to the USPS Board of Governors.  Finally, Co-Chair of the RNC Tommie Hicks tells Newsmax that ‘the American people deserve answers on the Mueller probe.’  
  76. 2020 Monday L: Final news of the evening Pt. 2: Michigan Republican Congressman Paul Mitchell quits the GOP because of ‘Donald Trump.’  Meanwhile, the Trump administration removes Sudan from the state-sponsored terror list.   Speaking of terrorist states, the U.S. places new sanctions on Iranian and Turkish thugs involved in terrorism around the globe.  They believe individuals from Iran abducted former FBI agent Bob Levinson and spirited him to Iran.  The sanctions placed on Turkey result from their buying of Russian weapons systems.  We say, “Boot Turkey out of NATO.  Now.”
  77. 2020 Monday M:  This was our sentiment one year ago today: we encourage everyone to stick around and discover what the Chi-Coms, their allies in Canada, Iran, Russia, Venezuela, Cuba, North Korea, and their Democratic Party dupes in the United States are up to today.  You know it’s going to be good…
  78. 2021 Tuesday: Stick around to discover the truth along with us…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album released by Fairport Convention was another compilation package and a good one at that.  “Fiddlestix: The Best of Fairport Convention 1972-1984” hit record store shelves on July 21, 1999, and was a good one for fans.  It contains 19 tracks which include some rarities to sweeten the pot.  This veteran British band has so much glorious music that it is impossible to include everything on one single disc, thus one may have to pick up some of the other ‘best of’ compilations along with this one.  We believe you will be glad you did so please, seek this fine album wherever you shop for the absolute best in music.  You can thank us later.

Monday, December 14, 2020, Today in History:

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

ENDNOTES:

[i] Not exactly sure when we will begin promoting the music of this wild Australian band, but you can rest assured that whenever we present Black Sabbath, we will follow them with AC/DC.

[ii] In about five years, we expect to spend a year or two covering the music of Motown and of other classic soul bands so please stay tuned for additional information.  We thank you.

[iii] When we do a couple of years of classic soul and Motown bands, the Jackson Five and Michael Jackson will be included among them.

[iv] We promoted the music of It’s a Beautiful Day beginning on Thursday, 25-August-2011 through Monday, 29-August-2011 and a second round on Tuesday, 04-February-2014 through Wednesday, 05-February-2014.  Please seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[v] 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.

[vi] Once again, unmistakable evidence of a malevolent Deep State exists here as the Intel Community swore up and down that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.  That was the entire purpose behind invading Iraq and toppling the scumbag Hussein but in the end loads of people died during and after the U.S.-led invasion, something President Donald J. Trump is trying to correct in 2019.

  66. 2020 Thursday: An amazing scene occurred today in the White House Press Room as reporters- including John Roberts of Fox News Channel- attempted to get White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany to voice that “Donald Trump renounces white supremacism.” She provided numerous examples going back years in which Mr. Trump, both as private citizen and as president of the United States, blasted the notion.  Reporters never will ask “Pro-China Joe” Biden to renounce Antifa and Black Lives Matter nor do they ask him to denounce his son, Hunter, actively colluding with communist China.  At first we were confused but a source we have within the Biden campaign has alluded to the fact that internal polling shows black support for President Donald J. Trump is at an astounding 22-25 percent.  This would explain the amped-up rudeness we are seeing on display.  Adding to this story is the fact that Rush Limbaugh, during the second hour of his show today, has pointed out that the Proud Boys are a mixed group, both racially and ethnically, and that their international head- Enrique Tarrio- is a person of color.  He’s a black Cuban.   Yet, we know that “Pro-China Joe” Biden interacted with segregationists J. William Fulbright, Hermann Talmadge, Strom Thurmond, Robert C. Byrd, George C. Wallace, and numerous other white segregationists.  His own pick for VP called him a ‘racist’ so what the heck?  
  67. 2020 Thursday A: The Trump campaign slams the Presidential Debate Commission over it ‘moving the goalposts’ on behalf of “Pro-China Joe” Biden.  Biden supports the moderator being able to cut the mic of Trump- is this a sign of confidence in the Biden-Harris campaign?  We think now.  Meanwhile, ransomware attacks- most likely from communist China and Russia- hammer Tyler Technology, a company that helps report election results in real time.  Tyler says the attacks ‘cannot change votes’ but that they ‘can sow confusion.’  They are working to correct this situation.  Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, California, what was first reported yesterday- that the authorities had arrested the POS shooter of the two sheriff’s deputies as they sat in their patrol car is a fact.  Convicted felon, Deonte Murray, 36-years-old was already in custody for another offenses so they did not have to search far for this scumbag.  Hoist him high and drop him!  Elsewhere, the CDC extends its ‘NO SAIL’ order for all cruise ships until the end of October due to the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.   Finally, President Trump signs a stopgap bill to keep the government funded.
  68. 2020 Thursday B: LEFT-WING, LIBERAL, FAKE NEWS MEDIA attack line on Trump today is “WE DEMAND YOU DENOUNCE WHITE SUPREMACY” in these words.  Everyone in the administration must say this or else.  Friends, it is clear the Democrats are losing black and Latino voters, Telemundo providing a BIG INSIGHT into this shift following Tuesday night’s debate in Cleveland, Ohio.  A whopping 66-percent of viewers said Trump won compared to 33-percent who felt he lost.  This is NOT good for Democrats.  Let’s make them a modern-day incarnation of the Whigs.  Meanwhile, the Cook Political Report says that the Trump campaign is winning the voter registration battle forcing the Biden campaign to begin going door to door in the search for voters.  Speaking of the Biden campaign, WHY is the VP nominee hiding?   Is it because she knows the truth that the Harris-Biden 2020 ticket is going to be one of the all-time greatest landslide losers?   Still the latest poll from Rasmussen says Biden leads Trump 51% to 43%.
  69. 2020 Thursday C: U.S. Border and Customs officers bust 125 pounds of cocaine, worth at least one million in the U.S.- at a border crossing from Mexico into the United States.   The cartels are going to whack somebody somewhere for this mix up…
  70. 2020 Thursday D: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Yellow Fever, Chi-Com Virus, the Wuhan Horseshoe Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 34,136,078 confirmed cases, +350,900, 1,016,970, confirmed deaths, +6,823, and 23,711,591 confirmed recoveries, +262,257.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 7,361,455 confirmed cases, up 39,433 from yesterday’s reporting, 210,874 confirmed deaths, UP 751, and 3,930,203 confirmed recoveries, UP 9,283.  Here are the stats for Israel now that Mo is living there: 253,490 confirmed cases, 1,622 confirmed deaths, and 179,468 confirmed recoveries.
  71. 2020 Thursday E: 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: 822,469 confirmed cases, 15,928 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 12,555 confirmed cases, 139 confirmed deaths, and 10,340 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 91,603 confirmed cases, 2,222 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Georgia- currently, they have 319,334 confirmed cases, 7,063 confirmed deaths, but no mention confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Brian Kemp for being a Republican who is behaving like a Democrat and staying mum on the recoveries.
  72. 2020 Thursday F: We had a FAIRLY BIG UPSWING in the markets today.  Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 27,816.90, UP 35.20 points (+0.13%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  11,326.51, UP 159.00 points (+1.42%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,380.80, UP 17.80 points (+0.53%).  Price of GOLD: $1,907.80 per troy oz., -8.50 (-0.44%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $23.84 per troy oz., -0.409 (-1.69%).  Price of PLATINUM: $902.80 per troy oz., -3.20 (-0.35%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,328.20 per troy oz., -2.30 (-0.10%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $2.87 per #, +0.002 (+0.07%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $38.36, -0.36 (-0.93%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.79 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.85 euros.  Conversely, one-dollar U.S. = 28.88 Taiwanese dollars.  Unemployment now stands at or around 8.4 percent (August).  In April, it was a whopping 14.7-percent.  Right now, approximately 13.5 million Americans are out of work, thanks to Xi Jinping’s Bat Flu.  Jobless claims rose to nearly 850,000 first-time unemployed workers seeking benefits.  Other than on Beijing, the blame rests squarely on the shoulders of House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi who will not come to a COVID-19 relief deal with the Trump White House.  Vote her out on November 3 and send her packing.   
  73. 2020 Thursday G: Late this evening, President Donald J. Trump announces that he and First Lady Melania are now COVID-19 positive.  This follows on the news that Hope Hicks, an integral part of the White House team announced earlier in the day that she tested positive for the Chi-Vi..  This means Fox News commentator Chris Wallace now must rush to his doctor just as “Pro-China Joe” Biden will.  Sounds like the 2020 campaign is sputtering to a halt.  Thank you, Chi-Coms, thank you.
  74. 2020 Thursday H:  Here is the result of Thursday Night Football’s game: (1) Thursday Night Football: Denver Broncos, 37 (1-3) @ New York Jets, 28 (0-4).
  75. 2021 Friday:  As you know, we try to anticipate the activities of the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party flunkies here in the U.S., but we never know what they’re up to until we catch them in the act.  Please stick around and find out.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by Jethro Tull hit record store shelves on September 22, 2009: “Live at Madison Square Garden 1978.”  This DVD was LIVE in concert, and it featured mostly tunes from “Songs from the Wood” and “Heavy Horses” plus some much-beloved favorites.  The band featured Ian Anderson (vocals, flutes, guitars, keyboards), Martin Barre (guitars), John Glascock (bass), John Evan (keyboards), Barriemore Barlow (drums), and Dee Palmer (keyboards and synthesizers).  We tend to favor the early four albums over the more modern efforts but still, this is a clever way to see the band in a whole different light.  We hope you will seek it out and consider making it a part of your listening day.  Enjoy.

Elsewhere, in Dien Bien Phu, General de Castries informs Hanoi that the end is coming soon while Colonel “Gars Pierre” Langlais holds a council with his officers chosen to lead Albatross if indeed they thought they would be able to break out and head due south to what they hoped might be rescue. The officers to a man said they were not leaving behind anyone so the decision was made to stay and to fight to the end. This information was forwarded to General de Castries who informed his superiors in Hanoi that NO breakout would occur. Later in the day, after all artillery and mortar rounds were fired, a deathly pall settled over the entire valley. The Battle of Dien Bien Phu just…stopped.

  60. 2020 Friday: More and more information continues coming to light that demonstrates the coup attempt to remove President Donald J. Trump was just: a FAILED coup.  Millions of Americans demand that the participants in this endeavor face justice for the crime of treason.  Many of these rats are getting nervous already and who knows?  Barack Hussein Obama might find himself in the hot seat.   
  61. 2020 Friday A: Meanwhile, in the world of the Kung Flu- the Chinese Virus, COVID-19, confirmed cases globally are 3,938,828; confirmed deaths are 274,655, and confirmed recoveries are 1,319,306 which is extremely good.  In the United States, we have 1,317,175 confirmed cases, 78,198 confirmed deaths, and 182,305 confirmed recoveries which most likely would be far higher if liberal states reported them.  California claims 63,698 confirmed cases and 2,711 confirmed deaths (with no info on confirmed recoveries).  Hawaii claims 629 confirmed cases, 17 deaths but 566 confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, Washington state notes 16,388 confirmed cases and 905 confirmed deaths but no notation as to the confirmed recoveries.  It is interesting to note that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo caused more than 4,000 deaths in nursing homes statewide by forcing them to house COVID-19 positive patients with rest home patients.  He will face justice himself for this outrage. 
  62. 2020 Friday B: Due to China’s ‘gift to the world,’ COVID-19, aka the Wuhan Virus Crisis, 20.5 million U.S. jobs were lost in the month of April alone, driving unemployment to nearly 15-percent, a number not seen since the days of the Great Depression.  Communist China must pay for this outrage and it’s high time the United States begins pushing for a resumption of the Two-China Policy by demanding Taiwan be returned to the United Nations as a FULL member with its original seat on the Security Council.   Elsewhere, the chief prosecutor in Venezuela handling the case of the mercenaries hired to topple ‘much-beloved’ President Nicolas “Bus Driver” Maduro demands the extradition of an American as well as two Venezuelan dissidents seeking freedom for their country.  Prosecutor Tarek William Saab wants American Jordan Goudreau and the two Venezuelans J.J. Rendon and Sergio Vergara ASAP.  
  63. 2021 Saturday: Let’s hope it’s a slow news weekend…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Badfinger released its next album, “Badfinger,” an album originally entitled, “For Love of Money” but which was nixed by their new label, came out on February 21, 1974.  Once again, the lineup was the same, featuring Pete Ham (lead and backing vocals, lead guitar, and keyboards), Tom Evans (lead and backing vocals, bass guitar), Joey Molland (rhythm and lead guitars, lead and backing vocals), and Mike Gibbins (drums and percussion, backing and lead vocals).  Sadly, the magic of the OLD DAYS was gone because when things were good at Apple Records, they were genuinely GREAT whereas now, Badfinger was just another working band struggling to sell records in evolving times.  Still, they were a brilliant live act as well as phenomenal songwriters so what the heck folks, seek this one out and give it a good listen- we think you will be glad you did.

. Meanwhile, in the fight for Dien Bien Phu in French Indochina, two American pilots- James B. McGovern- nicknamed “Earthquake McGoon” for a comic strip character of the time and his co-pilot Wallace Buford bit the dust today. McGovern- flying his 45th supply run to Dien Bien Phu with a full load of ammunition for his French allies suffered AA damage to the tail. The plane was unable to complete its mission and as the C-119 struggled to make it away from enemy troops clipped the side of a mountain flying low through a valley, flipped over, and blew up killing the crew. These were the first two American casualties of the Vietnam War.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On December 13, 1971, after working long hours in the studio and performing gigs, Badfinger returned with “Straight Up,” an album that should have been a massive commercial success but which the critics panned.  The album featured the same lineup of Pete Ham (lead and backing vocals, lead guitar, and keyboards), Tom Evans (lead and backing vocals, bass guitar), Joey Molland (rhythm and lead guitars, lead and backing vocals), and Mike Gibbins (drums and percussion, backing and lead vocals) as well as George Harrison who basically joined the band and added his signature slide guitar as well as other notables such as Leon Russell and Gary Wright.  Critics slammed the effort but the group had three producers on the album beginning with Geoff Emerick who did their previous effort followed by ex-Beatle George Harrison who then left the band to bring his Concert for Bangladesh to fruition followed by the Nazz’ Todd Rundgren so there were inconsistencies throughout the effort.  Still, the song “Day After Day” was a big seller and will forever be associated with this gifted band.  We hope you will seek it out and consider adding it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

  58. 2017 Thursday: The Federal Communications Commission votes 3-2 to repeal the Net Neutrality rules imposed by the Obama administration.  Meanwhile, as budget talks continue, the Republicans are worried they might have defections on their side of the aisle.   Speaking of Republicans, House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-WI, is considering retirement at the end of the year.  Elsewhere, in Mogadishu, Somalia, the so-called ‘religion of peace’- Islam- strikes again as a suicide bomber kills at least 18 police trainees at a parade honoring them.
  59. 2018 Friday: President Donald J. Trump names OMB Director and acting director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Mick Mulvaney as his next chief of staff.   Mulvaney will replace retired Gen. John Kelly.  Meanwhile, a federal judge in Texas rules that the Affordable Care Act ‘must be invalidated in whole’ because without the individual mandate attached to it, it is unconstitutional.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Department of Education forgives $150 million in student loan debt.
  60. 2019 Saturday: The old sitcom, “The Beverly Hillbillies” mansion in Bel Air, California, goes on sale and fetches $150 million becoming one of the Golden State’s most expensive properties.  Meanwhile, as the impeachment of Donald Trump gathers steam, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, says, “I’m not trying to be a fair juror here” and opines that the ‘impeachment bill will die a quick death.’  Elsewhere, Louisiana State University QB Joe Burrow wins the 85th Annual Heisman Trophy Award.
  61. 2020 Monday:  Electors across the country meet today to determine who will carry the state’s presidential and vice-presidential votes to Washington, D.C. for the final Electoral College vote next month.  Republicans in battleground states plan to send alternative electors to represent them seeing as how several states had corrupt elections conducted by equally corrupt machines and election staff. White House advisor Stephen Miller says ‘alternative electors is the way to go.’  We shall see what we shall see.  When the Electoral College meets, we expect to see Biden 306 and Trump 232 in the count.  Yes, the Dems and their Chi-Com masters STOLE this election.
  62. 2020 Monday A: Anyhow, as President Donald J. Trump and his followers continue saying, “It’s not over,” most people are coming to the conclusion that “Pro-China Joe” Biden is the next ‘president-elect.’  Meanwhile, as Georgians prepare to vote in January’s run-off elections, far-left-wing racist bigot (and shadow governor) Stacey Abrams reports she has 1.2 million absentee voters ready to go while currently, hundreds of citizens of the Peach State are already lining up to early-vote.  Folks, the Senate is lost.  Elsewhere, Michigan conducts a forensic audit of Canada’s Dominion Voting Systems machines and discovers what should be a disqualifying factor in throwing out the entire vote in that state: the allowable error in the machines is supposed to be NO MORE than .0008% but in the machines used, the error rate was a shocking 68%.  This means the entire election is fraudulent and should be tossed.
  63. 2020 Monday B: The Wall Street Journal reports that the “Trump challenge is over.”  In the same vein, U.S. Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr says his boss is like a ‘deposed king ranting.’  Then, he resigned his office and said he will be gone before Christmas.  Loyalty.  One must admire it.  Speaking of ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden, we hear today that failed Midwestern former mayor and failed presidential candidate Mayor Pete Buttigieg heads the list to become the next secretary of the U.S. Department of Education.  Hell, Joe, why didn’t you appoint him your next U.S. ambassador to Iran (when you reopen our embassy there)?  Meanwhile, the ‘president-elect’ tells his supporters to stop with the calls for ‘defunding the police’ as it is costing them the support of the American people.
  64. 2020 Monday C: On the international front, we learn that the Chi-Coms have at least 2 million spies, honeypots, and intelligence agents inserted into governments, universities, corporations, and who knows?  Maybe even here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM.  Time to begin finding and removing these skunks like California Congressman Eric Swalwell, Democrat.   Speaking of the Chi-Coms, President Donald J. Trump says that it’s concerns about them that will cause him to veto the Defense Department spending bill soon to come to his desk.   Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the ‘Chi-Coms are the number one security threat to the United States.’  Watch “Pro-China Joe” welcome them to the White House along with Vladimir Putin and other thugs who want to destroy our country.  Elsewhere, Russian hackers breach the U.S. Treasury and Commerce Departments.  Not good.   We also learn that YouTube, Gmail, and Google were hit by some sort of outage which could be the Russkies, too.
  65. 2020 Monday D: In New York City, law enforcement offers a reward of $60,000 for information leading to the identification and arrest of the scumbag(s) responsible for the death of one-year-old toddler Carmelo Duncan who was hit by a stray round.   Meanwhile, we learn that last night’s attack on a cathedral in New York City was caused by what appears to have been a terrorist of some kind.
  66. 2020 Monday E: West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin urges passage of the $908 billion COVID-19 relief bill but no movement is in sight as House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi seems to be in no mood for helping ANY American with financial aid, ONLY ILLEGAL ALIENS.  The Chi-Vi economic toll affects both RED and BLUE states equally, yet very few want to help the American people.  Speaking of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, vaccinations in the U.S. are underway.  Note of interest: the ‘Reverend’ Al Sharpton, noted left-wing loser was caught in a luxury building NOT WEARING A MASK.  Send the POS to the gulag.
  67. 2020 Monday F: Some nitwit asked former Vice President (and current Green Meanie) Al Gore had any regrets about conceding to George W. Bush to which, he said, “NO.”  Took you long enough, Al.  Meanwhile, adviser to President Donald J. Trump, Dick Morris, told John Bachman of Newsmax that the Democrats ‘pre-emptively put the fear of God into the U.S. Supreme Court with all this talk of court-packing.’  We always knew Chief Justice John Roberts was a coward.  Elsewhere, My Pillow guy Mike Lindell says “Fox News had to be in on it” meaning how the Democrats STOLE the 2020 Presidential Election from Trump and gave it to Biden.  Speaking of President Trump, he is appointing as many of his allies to various federal posts that incoming Biden-Harris administration won’t be able to topple or overturn.
  68. 2020 Monday G: As for the Beijing Bug, here are the numbers for the CHI-VI, you know, COVID-19 Chinese Bat Flu Virus Crisis, the pandemic they started but still try to blame on the U.S.:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 72,221,634 confirmed cases, +571,758, 1,612,014, confirmed deaths, +7,498, and 47,218,235 confirmed recoveries, +406,451.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Xi Jinping Bat Flu pandemic: 16,477,271 confirmed cases, up 155,120 from yesterday’s reporting, 302,141 confirmed deaths, UP 1,243, and 7,478,028 confirmed recoveries, UP 34,127.
  69. 2020 Monday H: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 1,600,338 confirmed cases, 21,054 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 19,512 confirmed cases, 274 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 209,442 confirmed cases, 3,047 confirmed deaths (for some unknown reason, less than last week’s count), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Vermont, currently, they have 5,857 confirmed cases, 96 confirmed deaths, and 3,603 confirmed recoveries which seems to be the way of the world at present  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife have moved there: 359,070 confirmed cases, 3,004 confirmed deaths, and 338,321 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at another nation: Columbia: they have 1,425,774 confirmed cases of the CHI-VI, 39,043 confirmed deaths and 1,335,517 confirmed recoveries.
  70. 2020 Monday I: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 29,861.55, DOWN 184.82 points (-0.62%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  12,440.04, UP 62.17 points (+0.50%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,647.49, DOWN 57.97 points (-0.44%).  Price of GOLD: $1,831.60 per troy oz., -0.50 (-0.03%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $23.98 per troy oz., -0.067 (-0.28%).  Price of PLATINUM: $1,018.60 per troy oz., +1.20 (+0.12%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,318.90 per troy oz., -14.20 (-0.61%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.52 per #, -0.0115 (-0.37%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $46.95, -0.04 (-0.09%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.55 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.82 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.94 Afghan Afghani.
  71. 2020 Monday J: Sports News- the Cleveland Indians announce they are going to change their name to something ‘less offensive.’  Nothing wrong with the name, maybe they just need to change the logo of Chief Wahoo.   As far as sports teams with Native American names left, we have the NFL’s Kansas City Chiefs, the MLB’s Atlanta Braves, and the NHL’s Chicago Blackhawks.  The last one said there’s NO way they are going to change their name.  We shall see.  Meanwhile, we have Monday Night Football’s game tonight: (16) Baltimore Ravens, 47 (8-5) @ Cleveland Browns, 42 (9-4) Monday Night 5:15 P.M.
  72. 2020 Monday K: Final news of the evening- murder rates double in the city of Chicago.  Democrats in control, NO WONDER.  Shame on you, Mayor Lori “Space Alien” Lightfoot.  Elsewhere, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue says of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka AOC, aka Baby Evita, aka “The Fly,” ‘thinks she is living in another country and not the United States.’  We wish she would return to whatever s-hole country from which, she came. Meanwhile, a U.S. Court of Appeals questions the Department of Justice’s drive to ban TikTok, the Chi-Com-intelligence-gathering ap.  Next, President Donald J. Trump appoints Roy Bernardi to the USPS Board of Governors.  Finally, Co-Chair of the RNC Tommie Hicks tells Newsmax that ‘the American people deserve answers on the Mueller probe.’  
  73. 2020 Monday L: Final news of the evening Pt. 2: Michigan Republican Congressman Paul Mitchell quits the GOP because of ‘Donald Trump.’  Meanwhile, the Trump administration removes Sudan from the state-sponsored terror list.   Speaking of terrorist states, the U.S. places new sanctions on Iranian and Turkish thugs involved in terrorism around the globe.  They believe individuals from Iran abducted former FBI agent Bob Levinson and spirited him to Iran.  The sanctions placed on Turkey result from their buying of Russian weapons systems.  We say, “Boot Turkey out of NATO.  Now.”
  74. 2020 Monday M:  We encourage everyone to stick around and discover what the Chi-Coms, their allies in Canada, Iran, Russia, Venezuela, Cuba, North Korea, and their Democratic Party dupes in the United States are up to today.  You know it’s going to be good…

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

Monday, December 14, 2020:

ENDNOTES:


[i] Not exactly sure when we will begin promoting the music of this wild Australian band but you can rest assured that whenever we present Black Sabbath, we will follow them with AC/DC.

[ii] In about five years, we expect to spend a year or two covering the music of Motown and of other classic soul bands so please stay tuned for additional information.  We thank you.

[iii] When we do a couple of years of classic soul and Motown bands, the Jackson Five and Michael Jackson will be included among them.

[iv] We promoted the music of It’s a Beautiful Day beginning on Thursday, 25-August-2011 through Monday, 29-August-2011 and a second round on Tuesday, 04-February-2014 through Wednesday, 05-February-2014.  Please seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[v] 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.

[vi] Once again, clear evidence of a malevolent Deep State exists here as the Intel Community swore up and down that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.  That was the entire purpose behind invading Iraq and toppling the scumbag Hussein but in the end loads of people died during and after the U.S.-led invasion, something President Donald J. Trump is trying to correct in 2019.
