  62. 2020 Friday A: 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: 366,164 confirmed cases, UP 18,530, 7,475 confirmed deaths, UP by 248, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 1,311 confirmed cases, 22 confirmed deaths, and 975 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 44,413 confirmed cases, 1,427 confirmed deaths, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 405,551 confirmed number of cases, 32,446 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.  Wake up, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo!  Give us the numbers you murdering f**k!  YOU sent Xi Jinping Bat Flu-infected patients into rest homes where people were the most vulnerable and KILLED THEM.  We hope that when the inquiry occurs next month, that you find yourself doing time in a federal prison.   
  63. 2020 Friday B: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 26,671.95, DOWN 62.76 points (-0.23%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 10,503.19, UP 29.36 points (+0.28%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,224.73, UP 9.16 points (+0.28%).  The price of GOLD is $1,812.10 per troy oz., +2.10 (+0.12%) while the price of SILVER is $19.74 per troy ounce, -0.019 (-0.10%).  The price of PLATINUM is $851.40 per troy oz, +1.80 (+0.21) while the price of COPPER is $2.90 per pound, -0.0035 (-0.12%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $40.57 per barrel, -0.02 (-0.05%).
  64. 2020 Friday C: The federal government carried out its third execution of the week of an Iowa meth dealer, Dustin Honken, 52, a POS who murdered government informants and children back in 1993.  He had been on death row in Terre Haute, Indiana, since 2005, awaiting execution.  Execute these criminal scumbags.   
  65. 2020 Friday D: Congressman John Lewis died today, a victim of pancreatic carcinoma.  A famed warrior for civil rights, he served as Georgia’s 5th District congressman since entering the House of Representatives in 1987.   He was 80 when he passed.  God bless you, Congressman Lewis!
  66. 2021 Saturday: Let’s hope it’s a slow news day…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

One of the best live acts of the 1970s, Wild Turkey should have had a far longer career than what they did but thankfully, their final performances were preserved for posterity.  “Live in Edinburgh” came out on May 27, 2001, and it featured some heavy-duty rock and roll tracks delivered by one of the greatest bass players of all time, the amazing Glenn Cornick.  The band featured aforementioned amazing musician (bass, guitars, keyboards, harmonicas), Gary Pickford-Hopkins (vocals), Bernie Marsden (guitars), Mick Dyche (guitars/vocals), Jeff Jones and Kevin Currie (drums), and Steve Gurl (keyboards).   If you want to hear some amazing music by a little-known band by anyone who isn’t a Baby Boomer, please seek this album out and give it a good listen- you will be glad you did.

  29. 1947 Thursday: Brooklyn Dodgers President, Branch Rickey purchased the contract of Jackie Robinson from the Montreal Royals.

  49. 2004 Saturday: According to Al-Jazeera, on the anniversary of the toppling of Iraqi thug dictator Saddam Hussein, heavy fighting rages across the entirety of Iraq with the exception of Kurdish areas.  There, they celebrate the fall of the murderous POS with parties, dancing, festivities, and in one place melt an ice carving of the hated dictator.
  50. 2005 Sunday: Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao floats an idea to India, suggesting that the two rivals put past tensions between the two countries behind them and work at pooling resources and talent to become leading IT developers and manufacturers.  Doing so would signify the coming of the Asian Century.  No word from New Delhi.
  51. 2006 Monday: Illegal aliens across the United States take to the streets protesting a new bill, H.R. 4437 which would transform all illegal aliens in the country into felons.  Question: if hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens can pour out of the shadows and roam the streets, why are Border Patrol officers out there scooping them up, putting them in cages, and then deporting them back to whence the f**k they came?  This is what nations that love themselves do.  DO IT NOW.
  52. 2007 Tuesday: The U.S. government authorizes nearly $60 million for the Palestinian Authority.  How about this: how about NOT giving them the money?  They use it to commit terrorist attacks on Israel, not for the betterment of their people.  Elsewhere, all hell is breaking out in Baghdad.  The U.S. and Iraqi forces are fighting terrorists and scumbags and are planning to construct a wall around the Sunni neighborhoods in the capital city seeing as how much of the terrorism is coming from the Shia majority.

  55. 2010 Saturday: Bronislaw Komorowski becomes acting president of Poland after a plane carrying top Polish officials and President Lech Kaczynski crashes, leaving no survivors.  The aircraft crashed near Smolensk, Russia, and many people believe because he was an ardent critic of Russia that Putin may have had something to do with it.  Elsewhere, for the first time in 10 years, the Shroud of Turin goes on display.

  58. 2013 Wednesday: The United States, Jordan, and Canada boycott a meeting of the U.N. General Assembly organized by former Serbian foreign minister, Vuk Jeremic.  Meanwhile, tensions on the Korean Peninsula continue to rise as South Korea and the United States raise threat levels and the People’s Republic of China and North Korea clamp down on border crossings.  This is back when the PRC was sort of working with regional countries and the U.S. to contend with North Korea’s nuclear ambitions.
  59. 2014 Thursday: The head of Tesla Motors, Elon Musk, announces that his company will begin selling its luxury electric cars in China later this month.  Meanwhile, around Aleppo, Syria, home of ISIS, 88 people die and scores of others are injured when the Syrian air force drops a series of barrel bombs on the city.  This of course drives liberals loony tunes as they think the use of barrel bombs is somehow a horrible thing.  Look, killing people is a horrible thing, what difference does it make if barrel bombs do the killing or President Barack Hussein Obama indiscriminately drones people all over the world sans any type of trial?
  60. 2015 Friday: As ISIS continues spreading terror throughout the Middle East, jihadists in Baghdad carry out a suicide bombing killing several people and wounding loads of others.  It appears that President Barack Obama has no ideas as how to combat this evil scourge of jihad evil.  We say, “Neutron bomb.  Painless.  Simple.  Quick.  Cheap.”
  61. 2016 Sunday: Three bigwigs of the pro-Democracy movement in Hong Kong- Agnes Chow, Nathan Law, and Joseph Wong form a new political movement to fight for the freedom of their fellow Hong Kongese from communist China.  Meanwhile, as the international committee led by U.S. Secretary of State John F. (Flipping) Kerry tries to coerce Iran into making the ‘deal only if they agree to discuss their missile programs,’ Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif says ‘any discussion of his nation’s missile systems will NOT happen.’
  62. 2017 Monday: The 113th U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch, nominated by President Donald J. Trump, takes his place on the court on this date.  The swearing in ceremony took place at the White House.  Associate Justice would take the place of Associate Justice Antonin Scalia who died last year.  Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms detain a political activist from Taiwan, Lee Ming-che, claiming he endangered Chi-Com national security along with his wife.  
  63. 2018 Tuesday: So-called “Boy Wonder,” Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, begins testifying before the U.S. Congress regarding data harvesting, lack of privacy for the social media giant’s users, and misuse of said data.   Elsewhere, the Israeli government announces the findings of its investigation into the death of a jihadist on the other side of the Gaza border fence.  A sniper put the thug down- someone identified as a Hamas terrorist- with one shot which is ruled a ‘clean kill.’  However, the soldiers who filmed the incident and then celebrated it are told not to behave like that.
  64. 2019 Wednesday: On this date, one of the most amazing photos to come out of the Event Horizon Telescope depicts a BLACK HOLE in 2017 in galaxy M87, approximately 6.5 billion times the mass of Earth and about 55 million light years distant.  Absolutely amazing!  Elsewhere, anyone on Medicare in the United States has had salespeople calling them up, telling them they are ‘eligible for back braces for their pain.’  All one must do is to give their information to these scoundrels.  Well, the federal government charges 24 scumbags for Medicare fraud, not a good thing, because these people were pushing back braces to many who did not need them and billing the feds for $1.2 billion for not only the back braces but other durable equipment medical devices.
  65. 2020 Friday: China’s grand gift to the rest of the world, the COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis continues claiming lives and ruining economies.  Currently, we have 1,699,632 confirmed cases of this hellacious disease what with 102,734 confirmed deaths and 376,330 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 502,876 confirmed cases what with 18,747 confirmed deaths and another 27,314 confirmed recoveries.   Around the world, pain, suffering, and death continue and it’s all because of two guilty culprits: communist China and the World Health Organization that continues to carry water for the communist nation.  President Trump informed the world today that the United States puts $500 million into the coffers of the corrupt organization every year while the People’s Republic of China puts in a measly $40-50 million per year yet the W.H.O. continues doing Beijing’s bidding.  This will have to change and the only way it will is when the United States returns to the Two-China Policy and recognizes Taiwan as a full member state of the U.N. and gives them back their seat on the Security Council.
  66. 2021 Saturday: Even though it’s the weekend, we know that communists and their flunkies in Washington, D.C. NEVER sleep.  Stick around to discover the truth with us.  Also, stick around for tonight’s Super Lotto and Powerball drawings…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

UFO released a less costly retrospective anthology of sorts on January 21, 2012, “The Chrysalis Years 1980-1986.”  This effort contains every piece of music the band recorded between 1980 and 1986.  You get all the tunes collected together on several CDS.  Some sites are charging an arm and a leg (perhaps two legs) for this collection but if you have some money to spend- seeing as how everyone may have received their Joe Biden PORKULUS checks, you will have enough cash to purchase this celebrated set and still have more money leftover than you did with yesterday’s offering.  Seek it out now and see if it’s right for you- you will be glad you did.
