DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 544

DAY ONE-HUNDRED-AND-SEVENTEEN OF THE BIDEN REGIME

136. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, MAY 16, 2021:

Vice President Levi P. Morton; U.S. Secretary of State William H. Seward; Black Sabbath featuring Ronnie James Dio, King Crimson featuring Robert Fripp, Nazareth featuring Darrell Sweet, Nirvana featuring Krist Novoselic, Robin Trower featuring James Dewar, Savoy Brown featuring Roger Earl, and the Who:

  1. 1770 Wednesday:  Marie Antoinette, age 14, married the future King Louis XVI of France, who was only 15 years old.
  2. 1771 Thursday: The Battle of Alamance, a pre-American Revolutionary War battle between local militia and a group of rebels called the Regulators, took place on this date in Alamance County, North Carolina.
  3. 1792 Wednesday: Denmark abolishes the slave trade.
  4. 1801 Saturday: In Florida, N.Y., future 24th U.S. Secretary of State William H. Seward is born.  He would serve under Presidents Abraham Lincoln and Andrew Johnson from 03-06-1861 to 03-04-1869.  During this time, he bought Alaska from the Russians, something many saw as foolhardy and a waste of taxpayers’ money.  In fact, so many derided the purchase, they called it “Seward’s Folly;” that is, until massive gold deposits were discovered there.  In 2019, the 45th president of the United States sought to buy Greenland from Denmark and everyone laughed at him, including the Europeans.  Imagine how important Alaska is to the United States geopolitically and the same could be true of Greenland.  We shall see.
  5. 1817 Friday: Regular steamboat service up-and-down the Mississippi River begins on this date.
  6. 1824 Sunday: The future 22nd Republican vice president of the United States—Levi P. Morton—is born in Shoreham, Vermont, on this date.  He served under President Benjamin Harrison from 1889-1893.

  11. 1868 Saturday: The U.S. Senate failed by one vote to convict President Andrew Johnson as it took its first ballot on the 11 articles of impeachment against him.  Thirty-five out of 54 senators voted to find Johnson guilty of “high crimes and misdemeanors” over his attempted dismissal of Secretary of War Edwin M. Stanton, falling one vote short of the two-thirds majority required to convict; 10 days later, the trial ended after two other articles of impeachment went down in flames, too.  The problem was Johnson wanted to follow the wishes of assassinated President Abraham Lincoln who wanted to treat the South with leniency while Lincoln’s holdover Cabinet members wanted to crush them.
  12. 1869 Sunday: The Cincinnati Reds play their first baseball game and win 41-7.

  23. 1939 Tuesday: The government began its first food stamp program in Rochester, New York; under future President Barack Obama, it is at the highest levels ever before seen.  Elsewhere, the Philadelphia Athletics and the Cleveland Indians met at Shibe Park in Philly for the first baseball game played under lights in the American League.  
  24. 1940 Thursday: Prime Minister Winston Churchill returns to London from Paris as the Nazi juggernaut rolls across France.  For the Germans, the conquest of France is going better than expected.  French troops are in full retreat while the British are struggling to reach the Channel Coast.  General Heinz Guderian’s XIX Panzer Corps is breaking away from the rest of the steam-rolling army to try to beat the Brits to the coast so as to complete the trap and bag tens of thousands of prisoners.

  52. 2014 Friday: California burning- near San Diego, California, authorities inform the public that at least 20,000 acres have gone up in smoke within the county.   This is the toll of 11 wildfires.  This crap goes on year after year because Democrats will NOT permit proper forest management, won’t build new dams to collect fresh water instead of allowing it to flow out to sea, and putting so many restrictions atop PG&E and other power companies to fight global warming by pursuing renewable energy goals that are unrealistic.  The state requires good governance and it’s not from the Democrats.

  55. 2017 Tuesday: As the ongoing effort to destroy President Donald J. Trump continues, Newsweek reports that UNNAMED intelligence officials warned Israel NOT to share sensitive information with the president because he MIGHT pass it on to the Russians.  (Note- this is a load of crap).
  56. 2018 Wednesday: As talks on a summit between North Korea and the United States continues, Pyongyang says that it ‘might cancel the talks if the U.S. continues demanding unilateral disarmament of its nuclear weapons.  They know what happened to Libya that gave up its WMDs and things did not end well for the regime of Moammar Gaddafi.   Likewise, talks that were supposed to occur between North and South Korea are canceled as a protest of U.S. demands.
  57. 2019 Thursday: According to the Global Drug Survey, English-speaking peoples are more likely to get drunk throughout the year than do, non-English speakers, with the British getting drunk the most, an average of 51 times per year.  Folks, this is bogus information as Russians drink more than anyone and communist nations’ citizens (or authoritarian ones) drinking more than anyone anywhere else.   Elsewhere, the Trump administration finally does something that should have happened long ago and that is to cancel $929 million federal grant funding the disastrous California High-Speed Rail project, a project that seems to enrich Democratic politicians and their Chi-Com overseers.  (Note- we await Elon Musk’s Hyperloop which will make the train what it is- an expensive boondoggle).
  58. 2020 Saturday: Thanks to communist China, the Wuhan Virus Crisis continues as the disease continues causing problems around the world.  However, information coming from independent sources within the totalitarian state report as many as 750,000 cases of the coronavirus with possible number of deaths ranging from 150,000-to-250,000.  Since the authoritarian state won’t tell the world the truth, we must rely on these brave sources willing to put their lives and those of their families at risk to get the truth out to the rest of the world.  Here are the global statistics for today: 4,626,632 confirmed cases what with 311,363 confirmed deaths but 1,679,428 confirmed recoveries which is amazing, the number of recoveries compared to deaths.  In the United States, we have 1,497,244 confirmed cases, 89,420 confirmed deaths, but 272,525 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states where we have chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington state, here are the stats, state by state, beginning first with the Golden State: 76,793 confirmed cases, 3,204 confirmed deaths, but of course, 0 confirmed recoveries- California, give us the information!  You are no better than flipping communist China!  For Hawaii, we have 638 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 564 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Gov. Ige.  For the once great state of Washington, now beset by a socialist state government, here are the stats: 18,288 confirmed cases, 999 confirmed deaths, but like that fellator Gov. Gavin Newsom in California, NO number of confirmed recoveries because Gov. Inslee won’t share the stats.  Vote these scumbags out of office as soon as possible.  
  59. 2021 Sunday: Stick around and discover the news of the day along with us…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Badfinger released a live album, “BBC in Concert 1972-1973” on January 11, 1995.  The album featured 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) and one gets their money’s worth with the exception of one small thing: ALMOST NONE of the BIG HITS are here which is peculiar, one would think that the HITS would be featured prominently throughout the recording but alas they are not.  We hope you will investigate this album to your own liking as we love it and suspect that you will, too.  Why the hits- with the exception of “Come and Get It”- aren’t here is beyond us; thankfully, however, they did throw us a bone with that tune.  Ah, well, seek it out now and consider adding it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

  11. 1863 Thursday: In Mexico, as the French regime of Maximillian is under assault, at Camerone, the foundation for the French Foreign Legion’s most distinguished holiday occurs at a battered farmhouse.  Three officers- led by a captain with a wooden hand- and 63 rankers- held out against a howling mob of more than 2,000 Mexicans.  All day, the sun baked the ramshackle building that was becoming as porous as a kitchen sieve with all the flying lead plowing through it witnessed the deaths of most of the defenders until late in the day, the remaining five Legionnaires made the grim decision: to fix bayonets, fire their last round, and then charge out at the screeching mad attackers.  So they did, they charged out, went into Legion history for all time, and the Mexicans were so surprised that the lives of the three survivors.

  21. 1918 Tuesday: British forces in the Middle East continue rolling up the Ottoman Turks.  The Ottoman Empire was a crumbling entity, long known as the “Sick Man of Europe” because it was a jaded, hollow empire just awaiting the right set of circumstances to bring about its collapse.   That collapse was coming.

  26. 1940 Tuesday: State boxing officials in California licensed Belle Martell as the United States’ first female prizefight referee.  Elsewhere, following on the heels of the evacuation of Norway’s King Haakon, British troops begin preparing for evacuation themselves.  It is clear who is going to win this fight and it’s not going to be the French and British but the Nazis.
  27. 1941 Wednesday: The Afrika Korps gears up for yet another assault on the port of Tobruk with heavy bombing attacks by bombers and dive bombers.  The general leading this assault is Friedrich von Paulus, who would end up being transferred to the attack on the Soviet Union and would become the losing commander at Stalingrad.
  28. 1942 Thursday: The Japanese naval fleet consisting of three aircraft carriers and support ships is leaving the big naval base at Truk and proceeding to Port Moresby in New Guinea for the big invasion that is coming.  The Imperial Japanese are determined to strangle the sea lanes to Australia and New Zealand.
  29. 1943 Friday: The Nazi extermination camp, Bergen-Belsen, begins construction.  Elsewhere, in London, the Free Polish Government is in a quandary what with the demand for Swiss Red Cross to investigate the Katyn Forest Massacre because if they continue pushing it, the Soviets are going to cut them out of the future of Poland (which they do anyway).
  30. 1944 Sunday: U.S. Navy warplanes continue attacking Truk and destroying loads of Japanese warplanes.  Due to severe losses among veteran pilots, the Japanese are rushing poorly trained pilots into the fight which shows the desperation afflicting them.  Surrender?  No way in hell.
  31. 1945 Monday: As Russian troops approached his Berlin Bunker, Adolf Hitler committed suicide along with his wife of one day, Eva Braun.  His successor, Grand Admiral Karl Dönitz assumed power on this date and in this capacity served under his surrender to the Allies on 05-23-1945. Still the fight rages within the city and in other parts of Czechoslovakia where Germans still hold land.  The fight is fierce because the German military now seeks to keep open ‘tunnels’ through which retreating comrades can reach the West and surrender to the American, British, and French allies and not to the Soviets.  Meanwhile, Arthur Godfrey began his CBS radio morning show, “Arthur Godfrey Time.”  It ran until this day in 1972.
  32. 1947 Wednesday: The federal government changed the name of the Boulder Dam back to the Hoover Dam.

  67. 2014 Wednesday: In Clarkston, Washington, Larry Ramos—guitarist/vocalist with the Association[iii]—lost his battle with skin cancer on this date; he was 72 years-old.  Meanwhile, the Yemeni army has lost at least 30 people in ongoing battles with al-Qaida thugs.   Elsewhere, the Sultan of Brunei has announced the new institution of laws that would make Islamic law supreme what with floggings, amputations, and stoning of guilty folks.  We won’t be visiting there anytime soon.

  73. 2020 Thursday: Thanks to the Kung Flu trashing the United States, another 3.6 million unemployment claims pushes total unemployment numbers for Americans over 30 million.  AND the Chinese find offense in the growing world anger directed towards them!  Millions of people around the world now believe that COVID-19 was something deliberately released onto the world following Beijing being forced to sign the new U.S.-China Trade Accord.  We shall see.  Current numbers for the Wuhan Virus Crisis Pandemic for the world rest at 3,249,022 confirmed cases what with 230,804 confirmed deaths but 1,006,112 confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, in the United States, confirmed cases rest at 1,079,780, confirmed deaths stand at 62,603 but confirmed recoveries are 127,950.  Additionally, more states are beginning to release restrictions and businesses are beginning to reopen.  However, in California, Gov. Gavin Newsom issues a new order today in which all beaches along the state’s enormous coastline are now closed.   (Gavin, if you close the beaches, we will go to the mountains, the lakes, the forests, even the deserts to disobey your authoritarian orders).  In addition to this, we now know that Gov.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

We said it before and we’ll say it again: Michael Schenker is always on a musical quest much like Carlos Santana and he always puts together good groups with which to get his musical talents across to his millions of fans.  “Resurrection” came out under the moniker “Michael Schenker Fest” on July 04, 2019.  The band featured an amalgam of his musical friends including vocalist Graham Bonnet, Gary Barden, Robin McAuley, and Doogie White plus his usual rhythm section adding the power punch that this mad axman requires to light stages ablaze and melt the minds of his beloved fans.  We hope you will seek this one out and consider adding it to your ever-growing collection; you will be glad you did.

81. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, MARCH 22, 2021

Elsewhere, in French Indochina, the French Union forces fighting against the Viet Minh at Dien Bien Phu have a new problem. Their southernmost strongpoint- Isabelle- and second in size to the main camp- has had the road cut by the People’s Army. The French muster a force and several tanks to regain control of the supply route. Fighting is fierce, casualties severe, but the French Foreign Legion paratroopers are able to kill significant numbers of their enemies. Still, the road remains contested.

  58. 2008 Saturday: In Rome, an amazing incident occurs when Pope Benedict XVI baptizes Madgi Allam, the most well-known Muslim cleric in all of Italy.  Allam has decided to turn his back on Islam and become a Roman Catholic.  Will riots break out around the world?  Events such as this usually cause such mayhem.

Redoubt, an Alaskan volcano commences erupting.  Elsewhere, in the United States, newbie President Barack Hussein Obama is seeking a strategy with which to extradite the United States from the continuous war in Afghanistan.  Good luck with that, sir.  President Obama tells the American people that the Bush-Cheney policies have made the world less-safe.  We concur, the world is a much more dangerous place due to all these regime-change wars neocons love to launch.
  60. 2010 Monday: In a big to-do for the Obama administration, President Obama will be signing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act- the PPACA or more well-known ACA- into law.  The Republicans are preparing to file a bill with which to repeal it if it does become law but this BS from the GOP would continue until well after Donald J. Trump became president in early 2017.
  61. 2011 Tuesday: Governor Dennis Daugaard, Republican -South Dakota, signs an abortion bill that requires women to wait 72 hours before undergoing the procedure and to receive counseling.  Meanwhile, Hall of Famer NFL player Lawrence Taylor pleads guilty to misdemeanor sexual assault and receives a sentence of six years-probation.
  62. 2012 Thursday: In Portugal, trades unions call for a 24-hour strike nationwide to protest austerity measures the government announces it is going to put into place to halt further economic decline.  Meanwhile, Staff Sgt. Robert Bales is facing 17 counts of premeditated homicide while on duty in Afghanistan.  The Afghans want him so they can dish out justice but for now, he is being held in solitary confinement at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.
  63. 2013 Friday: The British Food Standards Agency reports a discovery in Lancashire of 100kg of horsemeat imported from Hungary labelled as beef.  Elsewhere, information is beginning to come out regarding the secret drone war the Obama administration has been running covertly.  Four Americans have been slain by CIA drone strikes in Yemen and Pakistan and the American public is growing concerned.  What is the 44th president up to?  Didn’t he win a Nobel Peace Prize almost upon the day of his election?  Yikes.  Take it back, Nobel, take it back.
  64. 2014 Saturday: At Oso, Washington, 30 people die in a mudslide.  Meanwhile, at Lake Albert, Uganda, a boat capsize kills at least 251 people.  Elsewhere, with Vladimir Putin formerly signing into law the act that allows Russia to rip the Crimea away from the Ukraine, the world is going berserk.  We shall see what we shall see.
  65. 2015 Sunday: Having discovered the remains of King Richard III of England, 1483-85, in the city of Leicester, the crown gives him a royal funeral procession to his place of burial at the Leicester Cathedral.  Elsewhere, it appears that civil war is looming in Yemen.  The United Nations reports the possibility which causes the United States to close a key base and begin pulling personnel out of the violent hellhole.  Meanwhile, one of the creators of the havoc in Yemen- Iran- is demanding an immediate end to ALL sanctions imposed upon their country if the U.S. and other nations trying to engineer a ‘deal’ with Tehran want to see it happen.
  66. 2016 Tuesday:  Jihadists in Brussels, Belgium have caused loads of trouble again as they attacked a subway station and an airport killing at least 31 people and injuring another 200 plus people.  The time is coming when permitting ‘armies’ of military age Muslim males from the Middle East, North Africa, Central Asia, and Sub-Saharan Africa must stop or Europe will be no more.  The authorities are out seeking this riffraff.   Elsewhere, Senator Ted Cruz says it’s ‘time we begin patrolling Muslim neighborhoods in the U.S. to prevent them from becoming radicalized.’  This of course raises the ire of liberals across the country.  God forbid we do something to protect our country.  
  67. 2017 Wednesday: Original drummer for the East Coast rock band, Boston[vii]—Sib Hashian—drops dead while performing on a cruise ship in Nassau, Bahamas; he was age 67.  Elsewhere, the House of Representatives is preparing to vote on the future of the Affordable Care Act, one of the failed Obama era messes that Donald Trump promised to end on Day 1.  Across the nation, liberals are out running riot in the streets, screaming don’t take away our healthcare.  Wah, wah, wah, everyone receiving Obamacare is receiving it thanks to government subsidies which are bankrupting the government.  Obamacare MUST GO.  NOW.
  68. 2018 Thursday: According to new scientific research, the Great Floating Island of Garbage haunting the waters between California and Hawaii contains more than 1.8 trillion pieces of garbage and thanks to China, Russia, and the Third World continues expanding by the minute.  Meanwhile, in eastern China at Yancheng, a chemical Xiangshui plant explodes with such magnitude that it registers as an earthquake, killing at least 64 and at least- according to Chinese reporting 28 missing.  Wow.
  69. 2019 Friday: Rumors continue to abound that special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, nicknamed the “Boy Scout,” will soon release his more than two-plus years witch hunt into all-things Russian collusion and President Donald J. Trump.  People who either helped initiate the potential coup or who have knowledge of the farce begin distancing themselves from the impending release of the final report.   Millions of Americans hope that when the report clears the president, that the people who launched the coup- Andrew McCabe, Rod J. Rosenstein, James Comey, James Clapper, John Brennan, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Loretta Lynch, Sally Yates, Peter Strzok and his paramour Lisa Page, and numerous others- including Barack Hussein Obama- will face justice. 
  70. 2020 Sunday: COVID-19 continues crisscrossing the world with the death toll now sitting at 15,000 with loads more to follow.  Worldwide, there are at least 340,000 confirmed cases of the bat virus with several nations such as Italy feeling the brunt of the growing pandemic.  The Gaza Strip, Afghanistan, and Syria report their first cases while German Chancellor Angela Merkel goes into self-imposed quarantine following her personal physician testing positive for this evil crap.  The U.S. is trying to prevent foreign flights coming in so as to stop the spread of the virus but in some areas, particularly Democrat-controlled areas, they aren’t taking it seriously as they should.   In Japan, the Summer Olympics are up in the air what with some nations now saying they aren’t going to send athletes.
  71. 2021 Monday: Stick around to discover what is happening today…

Meanwhile, the Senate Judiciary Committee backs the Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act which will correct injustices judges inflicted on tens of thousands of offenders who were first-time offenders, minorities, and/or poor.  President Donald J. Trump brought this amazing miracle into being along with Kim Kardashian and others concerned about the travesties of justice.
  52. 2019 Friday: Driving his enemies insane, President Donald J. Trump declares a national emergency as wave after wave of illegal alien caravans attempt to storm the southern U.S. border so he can divert funds and begin construction of the southern border wall.  Meanwhile, after Amazon announced it was going to build its new HQ in New York City, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took them to task, not understanding that in order to get something, you give something.  Anyhow, Amazon announces it’s a done deal- they’re going elsewhere- to Virginia.  Friendlier business climate there.
  53. 2020 Saturday: The COVID-19 growing global pandemic reaches into Europe now.  An 80-year-old Chinese ‘tourist’ dies in France from the Wuhan Flu.   Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Australian officials cancel a visit to Great Britain due to the Brits allowing Huawei to build their 5-G network.  Australia like the United States wants nothing to do with Huawei because of Chinese Communist Party’s use of its electronics to eavesdrop on everyone around the world.  Think TikTok.  Meanwhile, in Yemen, Houthis raise a big fuss over Saudi airstrikes that claim the lives of at least 30 ‘civilians.’ 
  54. 2021 Monday:  We heard early today that there is ‘bipartisan support’ for an independent commission to delve into the causes of the January 06, 2021, Capitol Hill Riots when Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi knows the precise cause: being in league with Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs who infiltrated the Trump supporters to pull off one of the greatest FALSE FLAG OPERATIONS in the history of American politics.  Add to that the waving off of proffered 10,000 National Guard troops AHEAD of January 6 and you know all you need to know.  It was a set-up hence why they lie about the death of Capitol Hill police officer Brian Sicknick, why we don’t know the results of his autopsy and why they cremated him as quickly as they did.  Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi has much for which to answer, folks, which is why she is appointing an ‘independent commission’ (yeah, right) to look into the RIOTS.  Speaking of Officer Brian Sicknick, the New York Times quietly updates the truth on his death saying it most likely was in response to some kind of irritant sprayed in his face such as bear repellant.
  55. 2021 Monday A: Joe Biden announces he will speak at a virtual G 7 summit on the ‘Panda Pandemic,’ aka the Chinese Virus, the Wuhan Virus, the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, the Yellow Fever 2020-2021.  Keep a close eye on the screen to see how they manipulate the ‘speech’ by Biden so as to see the earpiece telling him what to say and do.  Word of warning- Joe, don’t stick your wife’s finger in your mouth.   Meanwhile, Joe Biden continues dismantling the extremely necessary Trump Era policy of illegal alien asylum speakers remaining in Mexico.  Now, they can enter the U.S. and begin popping out one anchor baby after another.  Diabolical, Joe.  In other ‘Joe Biden news,’ Joe is driving ahead (well, those behind him) to get our guns from us and to eliminate our ability to get them.  Not going to happen, Joe.
  56. 2021 Monday B: Dick Morris speaks out on the Democrats’ ‘bloodlust’ in pursuing Donald J. Trump.  It’s because they have nothing other than “Trump Glue” to hold the Democrats together.  What a shame.  Meanwhile, reputed Chi-Com intelligence agent, Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell makes some stupid comment about God’s gender.  Thought you folks were supposed to avoid all gender-related terms on the floor of the House?  Hypocrite.  Speaking of dimwitted Democrats, Orthodox rabbis are calling on House Democratic Party leadership to remove Congresswoman Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar from her position as vice chairperson on the House Foreign Affairs subcommittee.   We have an alternative nickname for Ms. Omar- Ilhan “From the Rivers to the Sea, Palestine will be Free” Omar.   In other left-wing news, Puerto Rico is demanding Congress to consider statehood for the leftist island territory.  They say ‘Congress has a moral responsibility’ to do so.
  57. 2021 Monday C: In the New York City mayoral race, Andrew Yang has hit the necessary threshold in fund-raising to qualify for matching funds.  Meanwhile, Nancy Pelosi’s nephew, California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom continues to sink as the effort to remove the POS via recall has surpassed the necessary 1.5 million voter signatures with which to throw him out of office.   In the Empire State, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo continues falling in his approval ratings with his critics on all sides of the aisle going after him, accusing him and his bozo brother, CNN’s Chris Cuomo, of showboating on TV while thousands of elderly seniors in rest homes were dying of the Chi-Vi due to his horrendous mishandling of the Beijing Bug.  People are so angry with this guy, the state Assembly is considering stripping him of his emergency powers. 
  58. 2021 Monday D: In other U.S. news, the Minneapolis City Council now wants to RE-FUND the police department because everything is going to hell in a handbasket as are many other left-wing cities and towns.  Meanwhile, the Dems are launching an all-out campaign to get Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton out of office.  It shows how effective he is.   Elsewhere, Republican Congressmen Devin Nunes, California, and Jim Jordan, Ohio, demand that House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi ‘fess up’ on what she knew and when she knew it about security conditions at the Capitol on January 6.  People want answers as to WHY we still have a militarized capitol with fences and troops when they should be deployed along  the southern border.
  59. 2021 Monday E: Florida Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz says that ‘Governor Ron DeSantis would make one hell of a presidential candidate one day.’  Next, following former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley’s stupid comments regarding Trump’s support among the GOP voters, Senator Lindsey Graham says that ‘Donald Trump remains the most potent force among the Grand Old Party.’  Speaking of Ambassador Haley, even anti-Trumpers are outraged at her stupid remarks.  Her stock as a presidential candidate has fallen to outhouse levels like Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, Mitt Romney, Bill Cassidy, Ben Sasse, and other dimwits.   Meanwhile, the GOP plans on trying Joe Biden to the Chi-Coms in every chance they get so as to increase the numbers of wins in 2022 and again in 2024.   Moving on, Pennsylvania GOP Congressman Guy Reschenthaler says, ‘If you don’t think Cancel Culture isn’t coming for you next, wake up!’   In other news, the fact that vandals assaulted the home of Trump attorney Michael Van Der Veen proves just how effective he was in defending his client.  Some maggot scrawled, “TRAITOR,” on his home.
  60. 2021 Monday E: Big Tech now is attacking Pro-Life news services.  Big Tech strikes again. Speaking of Tech, we now know that the Chi-Coms- good friends of ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden used secret microchips installed in U.S. computers to spy on US.  How nice.  We should have nuked them when we had the opportunity.  Next, the president of Microsoft says the SolarWinds hack was biggest and most sophisticated in history.  Elsewhere, Parler has managed to return to the Internet via using ‘independent technology.’ 
  61. 2021 Monday F: Turkish dictator Recep Tayyip Erdogan says the “U.S. supports militants in Iraq who have executed members of Turkey’s armed forces.  What’s up with that, Joe?  Next, Iran tests a short-range ‘smart missile’ with a radius of about 186 miles.  Elsewhere, Congressman  Michael Waltz, R-FL, urges a boycott of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics.  We concur- NO freedom-loving country should participate in the Chi-Com-held Olympics- it’s akin to participating in the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin.  F— them. 
  62. 2021 Monday G: Severe winter weather is rampaging through Texas where power outages are ongoing as they are in at least 13 other states.  We hope they’re not using any Chi-Com equipment or software. Refineries in Texas are being forced to shut down due to the weather.  In other news, Ken Cuccinelli, former immigration bigwig in the Trump administration says that Joe Biden’s immigration policies are going to overwhelm the country as illegals are flooding in across the southern border.  We hope troops begin laying minefields along the border to stop this tidal wave.  Elsewhere, John Bachman on Newsmax TV says of the Joe Biden, ‘it’s hard to claim to be a friend of the working class when your policies are rapidly leading to their demise.’  Finally, it’s interesting to note that former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s BIG MISTAKE in using the nuclear option to confirm judicial appointees back in 2013 could see impeachment being used by the GOP to destroy numerous left-wing Democrats in coming years.  We can only hope.  
  63. 2021 Monday H: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 109,067,558 confirmed cases, +313,837, 2,405,546, confirmed deaths, +6,773, and 61,277,452 confirmed recoveries, +245,977.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 27,939,592 confirmed cases, up 32,738 from yesterday’s reporting, 490,672 confirmed deaths, UP 833, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- same as reported for nearly three-plus weeks now.  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 moron.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 160,802 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, YOU claimed you had a plan to defeat the communist virus, what the hell are YOU going to do about it- sit on your ass and blame everything on Donald Trump.
  64. 2021 Monday 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: 3,484,984 confirmed cases, 47,055 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,460 confirmed cases, 426 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 331,164 confirmed cases, 4,739 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Wisconsin: currently, they have 607,213 confirmed cases, 6,748 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 730,293 confirmed cases, 5,414 confirmed deaths, and 670,010 confirmed recoveries.
  65. 2021 Monday J: In other news related to the Wuhan Virus Crisis, the World Health Organization clears the Astrazeneca COVID-19 vaccine for emergency use around the world.   Meanwhile, Brexit leader Nigel Farage says the world is dealing with a virus, NOT the Chi-Vi but the WOKE VIRUS, one that is sweeping the world and one that we absolutely must crush before it crushes us.  Elsewhere, noted investigative journalist Peter Schweizer says that BOTH Joe Biden and Kamala Harris must get their families under control if they wish to keep things on the up-and-up (which they don’t- at least in our views).
  66. 2021 Monday K: In the African nation of Guinea, health authorities declare an Ebola epidemic.  Meanwhile 58 mostly Western nations unite to oppose detainment of their nationals or detainment of foreign nationals to gain leverage over one nation or the other.  The Chi-Coms do this, the Russians do this, the Iranians really do this, it’s horrible and it must end.  Elsewhere, a rocket attack in the lovely nation of Iraq kills a contractor and wounds a U.S. servicemember.  Finally, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu acknowledges differences between Joe Biden and himself but remains hopeful the senile old fool in the White House will give him a ring.  Don’t count on it, prime minister, you and your country must unite with ALL Arab countries to oppose Iran.
  67. 2021 Monday L: County GOP officials in the Pennsylvania counties of Clarion, Centre, Lawrence, Washington, and York censure Senator Pat Toomey who voted to convict President Donald J. Trump this past Saturday in the bogus second impeachment trial.  Ask him to retire.  NOW. Next, UPDATE on New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo- he is NOW blaming the vast numbers of Chinese Virus deaths on health care and rest home workers but oh, no, NOT me or my policies.  Andrew, a famous Democrat once said, “The buck stops here,” meaning with YOU- murdering f**k.  Noted journalist Bill O’Reilly says that ‘Cuomo is doing rope-a-dope’ to try to cover his ass and to evade punishment that is heading his way.  Elsewhere, the NATO chief says that nations that send troops to various missions should not have to foot all the costs of doing so but that the organization should help.  Next, the soon-to-be-deployed NASA new Mars rover is going to search out signs of ancient life.   Finally, in Palm Beach, as President Donald J. Trump returns from a golf outing, tens of thousands of his supporters lined the streets holding signs and celebrating how much they love the 45th president.  Speaker Pelosi: Trump ain’t going nowhere.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

We always love releases by the BBC as they give us glimpses into some of the greatest rock bands the country ever produced and UFO is no different.  On April 12, 1992, UFO released “BBC Radio 1- Live in Concert,” a superb album that provides the listener with gems culled from the early-to-mid-1970s and then again in 1980 so we have a couple of lineups here.  We love this quintessential hard-rocking, hard-partying English rock band as much as we know you do so please, seek this one out at your favorite site of music and add it to your collection.  UFO will blow any band from the modern era off the stage and into the crapper so please, seek this one out now.  You will be glad you did.

17. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, JANUARY 17, 2021

AA. 1943 Sunday: General Gabrielle Nasci of the Italian Alpine Corps received a letter from his German superiors alerting him that he and his corps were NOT to join the retreat from the Don Front. It alerted him that he would be held responsible for whatever was to come which meant they were being sacrificed to allow the Germans and the Hungarians to pull back. The Italian command in Russia- the ARMIR- told General Nasci later in the day to begin pulling back anyway, to break the Soviet encirclement of his forces before it was too late.

  62. 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.  
  63. 2019 Thursday: The so-called “Godfather of Crystal Meth” in China- Cai Dongyi- undergoes execution by the authorities for his numerous crimes.   Meanwhile, in response to House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s suggestion of a rescheduling of the SOTU address, postpones the scheduled ‘investigative trip’ by House and Senate Dems- including leadership- scheduled to leave for Europe, Egypt, and Afghanistan as the aircraft sits on the runway preparing to take off.  Oops.
  64. 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.
  65. 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.
  66. 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 dark 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.
  67. 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.
  68. 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. 
  69. 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.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Not to be outdone by the competition, UFO released their first ‘best of’ album, “Space Metal,” on October 13, 1976.  Of course, this 2-LP set was issued by their original record company and it contained tracks from their first two albums plus some cuts from a live album released in Japan as a promotional effort.  Whatever the reason for the collection of cuts, we hope that you will seek this one out because as completists, we all want every scrap, every shard of music created by a band.  The group’s first two albums make anything one finds themselves forced to listen to nowadays, Mexican music, Maroon Five, some skank with a single name, sound like the crap it is because this stuff is smoking.  We hope you will rush out and give it a listen- you’ll enjoy it.

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

Sunday, January 17, 2021:

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. (I don’t believe this- BOM)

  55. 2020 Sunday C: Thanks to POS California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom, tax revenues are plummeting, particularly in San Francisco where tax revenues are down 43 percent thanks to onerous Chinese Virus restrictions and lockdowns.  Everyone who lives in the state and who hasn’t thrown in the towel and moved elsewhere can go to recallgavin2020.com and sign the RECALL PETITION.  Two-million signatures are required with the state having an additional 120 days to gather signatures thanks to the Wuhan Virus Crisis and as of today, we are halfway there.  We got rid of another Democrat governor 20 years ago, Gray Davis who would be a far better person to lead the state NOW than he was then.  Governor Newsom orders all sorts of authoritarian lockdowns while he and his family flaunt them all the time.  Enough is enough.  Let’s get this POS removed from office ASAP!  On the bright side, most law enforcement officials in the state will no longer enforce his restrictions.   Elsewhere, efforts to impeach another thug governor, Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan, continues to gather steam.  Let’s boot these closet Marxists out NOW!

Trump.  America is partnering with countries opposed to the growing threat posed by the Chi-Coms as they continue projecting power around the globe through their corrupt Belts and Roads Initiative that links poorer countries as well as submissive European Union countries to Beijing via vast infusions of cash.  Look at how the Chi-Coms treat some of their proxies like trying to blame Italy for the Beijing Bat Flu- is this the thanks they get for working with the Chi-Coms?  Benito Mussolini’s ghost must be rolling around in his grave.

FOOTNOTES:


[i] When we begin promoting the music of our favorite classical composers and the conductors who perform them, Ravel will be among the first.  Stick around for when that day comes…

[ii] 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.”

[iii] We began promoting the music of this famed British blues-boogie-rock band on Monday, 12-February-2018 and the offerings ran through Monday, 19-March-2018.  Please look for them in these posts.  You will be glad you did.

[iv] We have yet to offer the music of the Talking Heads but hope to get around doing so and soon.  Stay tuned.

[v] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.    The “White Album” appeared on Thursday, 24-November-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[vi] Although leftist historians of modern-day call El Caudillo Francisco Franco an ‘evil dictator,’ the man kept his country out of World War II as well as prevented a communist takeover of the nation.  He deserves celebration, not condemnation.

[vii] We have not yet begun presenting the music of INXS but hope to do sometime in 2022-2023.

[viii] This pro-Russian German leader is a disgrace to her country and to the world.

ZZ. 2015 Friday: As the civil war rages in Syria (and the Obama administration sits on the sidelines), CBS News raises the question: ‘is it time for the U.S. and its allies to intervene in the war-torn, s-hole country to halt the flow of Muslim ‘refugees’ and ‘migrants’ who are overrunning Europe?’ Nope, it’s never time to enter into a conflict in an unimportant country, one that could become a cemetery for Russian, Chechen, and Iranian thugs and jihadi scumbags.

  53. 2016 Sunday: The United Russia Party- Vladimir Putin’s political party- wins big in the parliamentary elections winning 54-percent of all seats and installing his long-time crony, Dmitri Medvedev as prime minister.   What else is new?  These guys are a bunch of murderous hacks.

Sheriff’s Department deputies at close range has grown to $675,000.  Catch the shooter and whack him.
  58. 2020 Friday A: Dr. Tony Fauci says it’s highly likely we will see a vaccine for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu Chinese Virus Crisis sometime in October or November.  Speaking of the Wuhan Waltz, “Pro-China Joe” Biden is pulling back from saying he would impose a national mask mandate.  Poor old Joe, he has no clue what he is saying on any given day.  When is someone going to charge Dr. Jill Biden with elder abuse?  Speaking of “Gropin’ Joe,” Howie Kurtz on Fox News Channel noted that last night’s CNN ‘Town Hall’ with the former VP and Anderson Cooper was not even softball, that it was akin to “T-Ball,” noting that Trump received all manner of hateful questions in his earlier in the week while everyone treated Senile Old Joe with kid gloves.  What a laugh.  True what Howie said, however.
  59. 2020 Friday B: The Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled that mail-in ballots are valid up to three days after Election Day in November.  Meanwhile, Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi doubles down on her demand for a $2 trillion Chinese Virus relief bill.  President Donald J. Trump says he is in favor of the larger bill and advises the GOP to consider it as he wants to get COVID-19 Bat Flu emergency aid to the American people NOW. The president also signed a $11.6 billion aid package for the people of Puerto Rico, beset by corruption, mismanagement, and criminality on the part of their government.
  60. 2020 Friday C: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 30,290,791 confirmed cases, +287,413, 947,919, confirmed deaths, +4,716, and 20,623,028 confirmed recoveries, +224,627.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 6,780,553 confirmed cases, up 21,695 from yesterday’s reporting, 200,985 confirmed deaths, UP 433, and 3,659,384 confirmed recoveries, UP 2,256.  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: 778,977 confirmed cases, 14,883 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 11,211 confirmed cases, 107 confirmed deaths, and 4,248 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 85,133 confirmed cases, 2,124 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 179,071 confirmed cases, 1,196 confirmed deaths, and 126,329 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other state: Indiana- currently, they have 111,900 confirmed cases, 3,495 confirmed deaths, but NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Eric Holcomb, you are a REPUBLICAN- why are you behaving like a Democrat? 
  61. 2020 Friday D: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 27,657.42, DOWN 244.56 points (-0.88%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  10,793.28, DOWN 117.00 points (-1.07%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,319.47, DOWN 37.54 points (-1.12%).  Price of GOLD: $1,957.10 per troy oz., -5.00 (-0.25%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $26.95 per troy oz., -0.179 (-0.66%).  Price of PLATINUM: $932.80 per troy oz., -5.70 (-0.61%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,370.00 per troy oz., +31.50 (+1.35%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.11 per #, -0.009 (-0.29%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $40.98, -0.13 (-0.32%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.77 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.84 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.75 Afghan afghani.
  62. 2020 Friday E: U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the second woman nominated to serve on the nation’s highest court has died at age 87 from complications from recurring cancer.  She was the first Jewish woman to serve on the court and was nominated by President Bill Clinton.  She assumed her seat on the court on August 10, 1993.  God bless you, RBG!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

 

 

#PF001.2s Oh By The Way #45 05-28-2020 (400)

 

The record company of Pink Floyd- EMI- delivered a striking BEST OF compilation on December 10, 2007, the much-admired “Oh, by the Way.” This effort was close to comprehensive in that it contained not only all of the studio albums from start to finish- with the exception of “More,” but loads of lavish extras.   “More” contains some wonderful music and deserves to have been included but it is what it is. Still, IF you have as yet NOT introduced the music of this astonishing band to your hungry ears, you can rectify that mistake by doing so NOW. Visit Amazon.com or whatever else site you do for the best in music. We thank you.s
