Gavin Newsom playing politics- the slime.  Next, Hawaii has 640 number of confirmed cases, 17 number of confirmed deaths, but 573 number of confirmed recoveries which is amazing- thank you, Gov. Ige.  Finally, in Washington state, we have 18,611 number of confirmed cases, 1,002 number of confirmed deaths, but 0 number of confirmed recoveries.  Some states are not even providing the world with daily updates which is incorrect, too.  This seems to be the way things are going to be.  Communist China lies, Blue State governors and mayors lie, which should inform everyone of sound mind and healthy body that the Wuhan Flu is being used for POLITICAL PURPOSES.  Remain alert, especially for legitimate figures out of Beijing because what they report is simply not the truth.
  58. 2021 Tuesday:  You know the drill…

  48. 2018 Thursday: Richard Overton, the nation’s oldest living World War II veteran who was also believed to be the oldest living man in the U.S., died in Texas at the age of 112.   Meanwhile, Fake News Media continues lamenting how the ‘government shutdown’ may continue into the New Year.  The only reason it’s going in the first place is because Democrats won’t fund the southern border wall, a wall that will STOP open borders.  Democrats wise the f**k up, we don’t want to be overrun by swarms of illegal aliens.
  49. 2019 Friday: While enfeebled House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi continues holding the articles of impeachment lodged against President Donald J. Trump but not carried over to the Senate as the law states they must, experts continue debating whether ‘Trump is actually impeached’ of he is not.  Pelosi says, ‘he is and will forever be’ but others say, ‘no, he’s not, not until the declining speaker carries them over to the upper chamber and presents them to the Senate majority leader.’   Meanwhile, the Federal Reserve claims that ‘Trump’s economic war with communist China has backfired.’  They don’t like the tariffs.

  51. 2020 Sunday A: The Georgia Bureau of Investigation and election investigators are running another audit of election signatures.  Speaking of fraudulent elections, President Donald J. Trump calls out the Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel, Democrat, for resisting calls for an investigation into the rampant voter fraud and corruption that occurred across the state in the hours and days after Election Day November 3, 2020.  Meanwhile, in Rockford, Illinois, cops are on a manhunt after last night’s fatal shootings at the Don Carter Lanes bowling alley in which three people died and another three were wounded.   Elsewhere, after another thug fires into a crowd in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, two people died and several others were injured.  Cops there are seeking the 37-year-old shooter.
  52. 2020 Sunday B: In Nashville, federal, state, and local cops are closing in on the perp behind the RV bomb explosion in downtown that damaged 41 buildings- a revised figure from the original 20- and searched the home of a suspect, a computer tech specialist named Anthony Quinn Warner. 
  53. 2020 Sunday C: We learned of yet another outrage committed by Nancy Pelosi’s nephew, Governor Gavin Newsom of California.  Californians voted to increase gas taxes two election cycles ago so the state’s crumbling roads systems could be repaired.  The promise to the voters was that the tax revenues would go directly to the road repairs but oh, no, with the stroke of a pen on an executive order, Gavin Newsom redirected the $5 billion the road improvement law raised into fighting GLOBAL WARMING as well as funding the defunct high-speed rail system (and we also think into CalPERS, the state’s penniless state employees retirement fund).  Anyone living in California MUST SIGN the recall petition.  This POS must go.
  54. 2020 Sunday D: On the healthcare front, we learn that 1.56 billion PPE masks will find their way into the Pacific and Indian Oceans this year because Asians could give a flying f**k about polluting the world’s oceans.  Meanwhile, as fears increase over the new strain of the Chi-Vi discovered in Great Britain, California health officials now are testing for the B1.1.7 strain of the Chi-Com Virus.  Speaking of this foul lab-engineered disease, a New York state healthcare network is under investigation for unauthorized distribution of the Wuhan Virus vaccine.   Elsewhere, Japan shuts down air travel other than for its citizens returning home over fears of the B1.1.7 Xi Jinping Bat Flu strain.   Finally, three European nations- Germany, Hungary, and Slovakia administer the first China Virus vaccinations in Europe to citizens over the age of 80.
  55. 2020 Sunday E: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Yellow Bat Flu- the -disease the Chi-Coms manufactured in their Wuhan biowarfare lab and their allies, the Democratic Party- used to throw the election to “Pro-China Joe” Biden, aka “Chi-Com Joe”:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 80,671,407 confirmed cases, +505,047, 1,762,630, confirmed deaths, +7,868, and 45,612,622 confirmed recoveries, +362,356.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 19,262,641 confirmed cases, up 227,422 from yesterday’s reporting, 336,458 confirmed deaths, UP 1,819, and 8,412,707 confirmed recoveries, UP 97,410.
  56. 2020 Sunday F: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 2,144,430 confirmed cases, 24,231 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 20,970 confirmed cases, 285 confirmed deaths, and no longer any mention of confirmed recoveries at this point.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 240,763 confirmed cases, 3,283 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: New Jersey- currently, they have 463,166 confirmed cases, 18,630 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo is living there: 401,470 confirmed cases, 3,226 confirmed deaths, and 364,012 confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of Israel, anti-Benjamin Netanyahu protesters are in the streets of the country demanding he step down from office.
  57. 2020 Sunday G: White House economic adviser Stephen Moore says that ‘tax cuts for businesses should be included in the COVID-19 relief bill,’ which would help all of them get back on their feet sooner as would the authoritarian governors allowing everyone to return to work instead of persecuting people who want to open their businesses or return to work.    Regarding the economy, U.S. retail sales have risen by 3-percent over the course of the holidays meaning big box stores and online businesses are cleaning up while smaller businesses are dying.
  58. 2020 Sunday H: Here are today’s NFL games: (5) Chicago Bears, 41 (8-7) @ Jacksonville Jaguars, 17 (1-14) Sunday 10:00 A.M.  (6) Atlanta Falcons, 14 (4-11) @ Kansas City Chiefs, 17 (14-1) 10:00 A.M.  (7) Indianapolis Colts, 24 (10-5) @ Pittsburgh Steelers, 28 (12-3) 10:00 A.M.  (8) Cleveland Browns, 16 (10-5) @ New York Jets, 23 (2-13) 10:00 A.M.  (9) Cincinnati Bengals, 37 (4-10-1) @ Houston Texans, 31 (4-11) 10:00 A.M.  (10) New York Giants, 13 (5-10) @ Baltimore Ravens, 27 (10-5) 10:00 A.M.  (11) Denver Broncos, 16 (5-10) @ Los Angeles Chargers, 19 (6-9) 1:05 P.M.  (12) Carolina Panthers, 20 (5-10) @ Washington Redskins, 13 (6-9) 1:05 P.M. (13) Philadelphia Eagles, 17 (4-10-1) @ Dallas Cowboys, 37 (6-9) 1:25 P.M.  (14) Los Angeles Rams, 9 (9-6) @ Seattle Seahawks, 20 (11-4) 1:25 P.M.  (15) Tennessee Titans, 14 (10-5) @ Green Bay Packers, 40 (12-3) 5:20 P.M.  Tomorrow night’s Monday Night Football Game: (16) Buffalo Bills (11-3) @ New England Patriots (6-8) 5:15 P.M.

Trump’s former political advisor had his first day in court with three of his fellow sycophants and pled ‘not guilty’ to charges the quartet defrauded donors into providing money to help build the wall along our border with Mexico.  Elsewhere, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the case against former Trump National Security Advisor Michael Flynn cannot be dropped even though the U.S. Justice Department dropped the charges.  This was a nod to the whack-a-doodle judge on the case, Emmet Sullivan.
  62. 2020 Monday A: Here are today’s Chi-Com Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 25,051,178 confirmed cases, +212,258, 843,586 confirmed deaths, +3,335, and 16,451,018 confirmed recoveries, +142,323.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 6,081,372 confirmed cases, UP by 23,852 new cases, 185,870 confirmed deaths, UP by 333 new deaths, and 3,202,457 confirmed recoveries, UP by 6,091 new recoveries.   Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 699,909 confirmed cases, 12,905 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 8,339 confirmed cases, 63 confirmed deaths, and 2,520 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 74,320 confirmed cases, 1,905 confirmed deaths, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  NOTE: COVID-19 is now the third leading cause of death in the United States.  The estimated hit to U.S. tourism and travel industries as of today rests at $51.5 billion.  The Chi-Coms have much to make restitution.   
  63. 2020 Monday B: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 28,430.05, DOWN 223.82 points (-0.78%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,775.46, UP 79.82 points (+0.68%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,500.31, DOWN 7.70 points (-0.22%).  Currently, GOLD is at $1,973.90 per troy oz., DOWN -4.70 (-0.24%), SILVER is at $28.24 per troy oz., DOWN -0.202 (-0.71%), PLATINUM $937.90 per troy oz. DOWN -0.90 (-0.10%), and COPPER is at $3.05 # -0.01 (-0.33%).  Light Sweet Crude Oil is 42.82, UP +0.21 (+0.49%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.85 Chi-Com yuan. In contrast, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros.
  64. 2020 Monday C: Today, history occurred as El Al Flight 971 lifted off from Jerusalem and three-and-a-half hours later touched down in the United Arab Emirates, the first flight ever to do so.  The aircraft carried loads of dignitaries and the underside of the jetliner bristled with anti-missile defenses.  This is a great day for the entire world although the Palestinians continue running amok in the Gaza Strip, trying to initiate yet another war with the world’s sole Jewish state.  Shame on them.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On September 11, 1976, Electric Light Orchestra released the follow up to “Face the Music,” the acclaimed “A New World Record.”  UK critics loved the album while some in the U.S. were ambivalent in their reviews but hey- the album generated four tunes that received considerable airplay: “Living Thing,” “Rockarial!” “Do Ya,” and “Telephone Line.”  Say what you will, the album sold extremely well and the tunes were on the radio around the clock.  The lineup featured Jeff Lynne (vocals, guitars, synthesizers), Bev Bevin (drums/percussion), Richard Tandy (keyboards, guitars, backing vocals), Kelly Groucutt (bass, backing vocals), Melvyn Gale (cello), Mik Kaminski (violin), and Hugh McDowell (cello), with some help from some of their musical friends.  We hope you will seek it out and consider making it a part of your growing musical collection.  You will enjoy it.
