However, the military of Niger gets lucky and kills 30 Boko Haram thugs and sends the rest of the rats scurrying for their hideouts in the jungle.

  59. 2018 Tuesday: According to Bloomberg News, the NFL pulled in $14 billion in revenue for the 2017-2018 season and that it redistributed $8.1 billion back to the league’s 32 teams, each one receiving approximately $255 million.  The question is, when will the NFL expand the league to 36 teams by putting one each in San Antonio, Texas, Las Vegas, Nevada, Salt Lake City, Utah, and Honolulu, Hawaii?  
  60. 2019 Wednesday: The U.S. House of Representatives condemned some recent tweets by President Donald J. Trump (Oh, say it ain’t so) as RACIST, ones in which, he made suggestions that four female congresswomen of color- the ditz, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Baby Evita, Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley[ix] ‘go back to the crime-infested countries from whence they come IF they don’t like America.’  Everyone knows these four women HATE the United States and want to see its downfall and many of us believe they should leave the country and go back to where the f**k they come from.  Still, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi got all her members to vote for this resolution as well as a couple of limp-wristed, weak-kneed Republicans.  Shame on them.
  61. 2020 Friday: Here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 13,885,746 confirmed cases, UP by 231,301 cases, 592,573 confirmed deaths, UP by 6,399 deaths, and 7,779,604 confirmed recoveries, UP by 157,099 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 3,677,453 confirmed cases, UP by 143,548 new cases, 140,888 confirmed deaths, UP by 2,530 new deaths, and 1,076,823 confirmed recoveries, UP by 50,007 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them).   
  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.

. Meanwhile in World War II, the Soviets continue their pincer movement around Berlin as one army begins fighting into the suburbs from the South while from the east, another is pummeling its way into the city from that direction. Germans are still able to enter and exit the city at this time as the Soviets have not yet sealed the city off on all sides. Hitler has a chance to fly out but won’t take it- or so we believe.

114. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, APRIL 24, 2021:

DAY NINETY-FIVE OF THE BIDEN REGIME

U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Peter Vivian Daniel; U.S. Secretary of Defense Louis A. Johnson; Badfinger featuring Pete Ham, Blondie featuring Nigel Harrison, Creedence Clearwater Revival featuring Doug “Cosmo” Clifford, “Diamond Dogs” by David Bowie, and the Electric Prunes featuring Preston Ritter:

  1. 858 Wednesday: Nicholas I succeeds the 104th Pope Benedict III to become the 105th Roman Catholic Pope.
  2. 1061 Wednesday: An English monk predicts that England will suffer destruction thanks to the passage of Haley’s Comet by the Earth.
  3. 1519 Thursday: Envoys of Montezuma II attended the first Easter Mass in Central America—at the behest of Spanish conquistador, Hernan Cortes.
  4. 1704 Thursday: The first regular newspaper in Colonial America, The Boston News-Letter hits publication.
  5. 1762 Saturday: Russia and Prussia sign a treaty of peace.
  6. 1784 Saturday: The future 28th associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court- Peter Vivian Daniel- was born in Stafford County, Virginia, on this date.  A Democrat, he was appointed to the nation’s high court by President Martin Van Buren to fill the seat vacated by 25th Associate Justice Philip Pendleton Barbour.  Daniel served on the Supreme Court from 01-10-1842 to 05-31-1860 when he died.
  7. 1792 Tuesday: Captain Claude Joseph Rouget de Lisle composed the national anthem of France, “La Marseillaise,” on this date.
  8. 1800 Thursday: Congress approved a bill establishing the Library of Congress and President John Adams signed it into being, which appropriates $5,000 to purchase “such books as may be necessary for use of Congress.”
  9. 1805 Wednesday: In Tripoli, North Africa, United States Marines attacked and captured the town of Derna.
  10. 1833 Wednesday: The creator of the soda fountain received a patent for the device.
  11. 1867 Wednesday: Black demonstrators stage ride-ins on Richmond, Virginia, streetcars.
  12. 1877 Tuesday: In defense of Romania, Russia declares war on the Ottoman Empire.  Meanwhile, the last Federal occupation troops withdraw from the South, departing through New Orleans, Louisiana, for home.  This would open the door to horrendous actions by Southern Democrats and their allies, the Ku Klux Klan.  Every Black American needs to recall who the REAL villains in their mistreatment were and have been: the two groups above are responsible for their persecution and for Jim Crow/Segregation laws.
  13. 1884 Thursday: In Atlanta, Georgia, the Black National Physicians Organization organizes.
  14. 1889 Wednesday: Thomas Edison and his business advisors organized the Edison General Electric Company.

  18. 1915 Saturday: What’s regarded as the start of the Armenian Genocide began as the Ottoman Empire rounded up Armenian political and cultural leaders in Constantinople.  Although persecutions against Christians had been ongoing since Turkey joined the Central Powers- German Empire, Austro-Hungary, and Bulgaria- they were going to step up the pressure, fearful that they would have enemies in their rear areas.  Elsewhere, on the Western Front, the Second Battle of Ypres continues as Germans continue making gains.  On the Eastern Front, the Austro-Hungarians are making headway in the western Ukraine against the Russian bear.
  19. 1916 Monday: Some 1,600 Irish nationalists launched the Easter Uprising by seizing several key sites in Dublin; however, the British crushed it almost a week later.   The Irish felt that with the British occupiers suffering heavy losses in World War I, this might be a grand opportunity to drive them out of the Emerald Isle.
  20. 1917 Tuesday: Fighting continues to rage in the French countryside as British, French, and German forces throw all they have at one another.  Elsewhere, the Ukraine demands independence from Czarist Russia.
  21. 1918 Wednesday: Heavy fighting continues in the Somme as the Germans continue their all-out offensive to drive the Allies out of the war.  Starvation and lack of medicine is plaguing both sides in this titanic struggle, one that has another 4-5 months to go.   Meanwhile, the British and Turks announce a decision for a prisoner exchange.
  22. 1940 Wednesday: German forces in Norway continue solidifying their positions as reinforcements arrive with which to counter the Brits who are trying to keep Norway free and independent.  However, preparations for the invasion of France continue as Germans continue building their troop strength up, much of it in the heavily wooded Ardennes Forest.
  23. 1941 Thursday: Resistance in Greece is dying as the Germans and their allied Axis troops continue pushing Greek and British defenders back to the southern portion of the country.  In Yugoslavia, resistance is also sputtering to an end.  Elsewhere, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt orders military leaders to keep track of all German Kriegsmarine movements so the information can be forwarded to the British government, on the sly of course, as the U.S. is not yet in the war.
  24. 1942 Friday: The Luftwaffe steps up its attacks against British heritage sites as heavy bombers target sites up and down the eastern coast of Great Britain.  The British are determined to withstand the assault while the Germans are doing their best to bomb them into submission.
  25. 1943 Saturday: The Germans are startled as they begin to clear the Warsaw Ghetto of its Jews.  The Jews have guns, are firing back, killing German soldiers, and destroying German vehicles.  In response, the Germans begin setting buildings on fire.  However, the defenders in these buildings either fight to the death or retreat through pre-cut holes in walls or into the sewers to fight another day.
  26. 1944 Monday: The first B-29 arrived in Nationalist China, flying ‘over the hump’ of the Himalayas.  Elsewhere, now that Italy is on the Allied side, their warplanes are flying sorties against their former German allies in the Aegean Sea attacking garrisons holding islands and ports.   The Germans respond with violence against Italian prisoners.
  27. 1945 Tuesday: Doug “Cosmo” Clifford, future drummer of both Creedence Clearwater Revival[i] and Creedence Clearwater Revisited, was born in Palo Alto, California, on this date in history.  Meanwhile in World War II, the Soviets continue their pincer movement around Berlin as one army begins fighting into the suburbs from the South while from the east, another is pummeling its way into the city from that direction.  Germans are still able to enter and exit the city at this time as the Soviets have not yet sealed the city off on all sides.  Hitler has a chance to fly out but won’t take it- or so we believe.

  33. 1961 Monday: Sandy Koufax of the Los Angeles Dodgers struck out 18 batters, becoming the first major-league pitcher to do so on two separate occasions.  Elsewhere, President John F. Kennedy accepted ‘sole responsibility’ for the disaster HE set in motion at the Bay of Pigs in Cuba.  He committed Cuban exiles to action to overthrow Fidel Castro and then in their hour of need, he abandoned them to death or to long prison terms in Cuban prisons.  
  34. 1962 Tuesday: The Massachusetts Institute of Technology achieved the first satellite relay of a television signal, using NASA’s Echo 1 balloon satellite to bounce a video image from Camp Parks, California, to Westford, Massachusetts.

  50. 2004 Saturday: The United States lifts economic sanctions imposed on Libya 18 years previously for its cooperation in eliminating weapons of mass destruction.   Meanwhile, the insurgency in Iraq is gathering steam as attacks on oil tankers in Basra occur as do suicide bombings around Sadr City that kill Iraqi government forces.  The bloom is quickly off the rose.  The U.S. should never have launched the invasion the previous year and yet, they did.  George W. Bush broke it; he now owns it.
  51. 2005 Sunday: Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger undergoes inauguration as the 265th pope of the Roman Catholic Church, taking the papal name of Benedict XVI.   Meanwhile, in Kuwait, 7,000 angry Bengali workers storm the Bangladeshi embassy demanding redress for unpaid wages.  Elsewhere, Saudi Arabia arrest 40 Pakistani Christians brazenly practicing their faith in Riyadh.  NOT good, folks, not good…for them.

  53. 2007 Tuesday: Hamas decides to do what it does best today: terrorism.  They launch a barrage of missiles, rockets, and mortar shells into neighboring Israel.  Scumbags.  Use neutron bombs on this human garbage to cleanse the region of their pestilence.  Elsewhere, Kevin Tillman, brother of NFL star and slain soldier in the Afghan War Pat Tillman, testifies before Congress accusing the Bush administration of manipulating his ‘friendly fire’ death into something with which to increase recruitment and support for the ongoing regime change wars.
  54. 2008 Thursday: Following the recent destruction of a nuclear facility in Syria by the Israelis, the United States reports that North Korean technicians helped the Syrians build the reactor.  Good thing the Israelis blew it up.  Meanwhile, following Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton’s BIG WIN in Pennsylvania this past Tuesday, she has raked in $10 million in donations.  Both she and her opponent, Senator Barack Hussein Obama, D-IL, are focusing their attentions on Indiana, the next big state in the primary battles.  Elsewhere, the United Nations is crying that the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip is preventing them from getting aid to the Palestinians.
  55. 2009 Friday: Not to be outdone by terrorists in Iraq yesterday, slavering jihadis carry out yet another suicide bombing in Baghdad, killing at least 80 people and wounding or crippling another 125.  Time to start lighting up the terrorists, we say, “Use neutron bombs, send these scumbags straight to hell.”  Elsewhere, North Korea plans to try two Current TV journalists they claim were on the soil but evidence shows they were on the Chinese side of the Yalu River and were kidnapped by the North Koreans.  WTF?
  56. 2010 Saturday: Pakistani Taliban are launching attacks all over the place but especially against NATO supply lines.  The jihadist thugs torch six NATO fuel tankers and also blow up at least 30 people in a suicide attack on a prison van carrying thugs to prison.
  57. 2011 Sunday: Pope Benedict XVI performs Easter Mass at St. Peter’s Square in Vatican City; he calls for dialogue and diplomacy to end Libya’s unrest.  Elsewhere, a group of Jewish worshippers decided to visit a holy site in the Palestinian-controlled city without coordinating their visit with Israeli Defense Forces as required by law.  They went and prayed without event; then, when returning home, they mixed it up with Palestinian law enforcement who lit them up and killed at least one of the worshippers and injured several others.  Obey the law.  
  58. 2012 Tuesday: The Obama-controlled Pentagon is creating a new intelligence service, the Defense Clandestine Service that will (supposedly) investigate threats to U.S. national interests coming from nations such as North Korea, the Chi-Coms, and Iran.  Good.  Just what we need.  Another flipping spy agency in the hands of Barack Hussein Obama.  Meanwhile, Al-Jazeera reports that the case against imprisoned Pfc. Bradley Manning must be thrown out due to prosecutorial misconduct.
  59. 2013 Wednesday: Americans learn the FBI and CIA had previous intelligence from Russia warning U.S. intelligence agencies about Tamerlane Tsarnaev’s extremist connections before the Boston Marathon bombings.   Meanwhile, in Manchester, Illinois, a mass shooting occurs leaving five dead and another one or two injured.  As police track down the shooter and engage, the gunman is killed.
  60. 2014 Thursday:  The Federal Communications Commission moves away from the idea of net neutrality, in which all Internet users can equally access and view content; the agency instead proposes to allow large companies to pay Internet service providers for access to faster streaming “lanes.”  Meanwhile, it sounds like President Barack Hussein Obama, aka the Bamster, listened to us yesterday.  He is blasting Russian dictator Vladimir Putin for waging a war of aggression in the Ukraine and is threatening additional sanctions on Moscow.
  61. 2015 Friday: As the civil war continues raging in Yemen, UNICEF reports that hundreds, perhaps thousands, of children have been slain, wounded, or maimed for life in the savage fighting there.  Iran is meddling in this war, stirring up trouble for the Saudis and the rest of the Sunni world.  They believe that if they can bring Shias to power in Yemen, they will have the Kingdom nearly surrounded.
  62. 2016 Sunday: With the U.S. silent about the upcoming joint military exercises with South Korea, North Korea moves up 300 ballistic missile launchers near the demilitarized zone on the chance they may have to go to war with both the U.S. and their southern neighbors.  Speaking of President Obama, he says the U.S. won’t be deploying ground troops to Syria and sadly, he believes the last nine months of his time in office will not see ISIS defeated.  (Note- because YOU never tried, Bamster).
  63. 2017 Monday: Arkansas puts their thumb in the eyes of the leftists as it becomes the first state to execute NOT one murderer but two on the same day, something that has not occurred since 2000.  Convicted murderers Jack Jones Jr. and Marcel Williams meet their Maker via lethal injection.
  64. 2018 Tuesday: President Donald J. Trump hosts his first state dinner for visiting French President Emanuel Macron.  Elsewhere, according to IFPI, streaming music service sales overtake that of CDs, LPs, and tapes.  Such a shame but young people are extremely unintelligent when it comes to sound quality.  Elsewhere, Thailand raises its hand and suggests that it would like to hold the upcoming summit between the United States and North Korea.
  65. 2019 Wednesday: “Brave Leader” Kim Jong Un arrives in Vladivostok, Russia, aboard his armored private train for his first meetings with Russian leader Vladimir Putin.  The talks will begin tomorrow.  Speaking of the ‘Brave Leader,’ four of his foreign ministry officials underwent execution over his failed second summit with President Donald J. Trump in Hanoi, Vietnam, back in February.  Accused of handing over sensitive information to the Americans, these unlucky four were lucky enough that all they faced was the firing squad and not some bizarre other form of execution dreamed up by Chairman Kim Jong Un.   
  66. 2020 Friday: As of 22:00 hours, the current number of confirmed COVID-19 cases around the world stands at 2,790,986; the current number of confirmed deaths worldwide sits at 195,920 but the confirmed recoveries sit at 781,382.  Sadly- thank you, communist China- the United States rapidly is approaching one million confirmed cases as this evening, we find 924,510 Wuhan Virus cases in the U.S.  Currently, we have 52,296 confirmed fatalities but 100,795 confirmed recoveries.   As for our People’s Republic of China ‘amigos,’ these scumbags claim (same every day) 88,423 confirmed cases with the same number of dead- 4,632 and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  Everyone understands communists always lie and so they are.  As for the U.S. Stock Market, the DOW Jones Industrial Average closes at 23,775.27, up 260.01 (1.11%); the NASDAQ closes 8,634.52, UP 139.77 (1.65%), and the S & P 500 ends at 2,836.74, UP 38.94 (1.39%).  The U.S. is and will recover and the PRC will pay an exorbitant price for the perfidy they have committed against the world.
  67. 2021 Saturday: Stick around and find out what’s going on…

ENDNOTES:


[i] We promoted the music of the world-famous Creedence Clearwater Revival beginning on Saturday, 16-November-2013 through Saturday, 07-December-2013.  Being the inattentive morons that we were back then, we neglected to promote the music of the band’s individual members.  We hope to do this one day so folks, keep vigilant for the day when we do.

[ii] We hope to promote the music of the Electric Prunes within the next 5-10 years.

[iii] We hope to promote the music of Blondie within the next 7-8 years.  We hope you will be with us when we do.

[iv] We should have shot down this POS satellite.

[v] We hope to promote the music of David Bowie within the next decades.

[vi] We should have shared the music of Badfinger at the time we promoted that of the Beatles but guess what?  We flipping failed just as we failed to promote the music of Thunderclap Newman at the same time we did the Who.  One day, we sure as heck will so please remain vigilant.

[vii] We hope to promote the music of David Bowie within the next decades.

107. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, APRIL 17, 2021

DD. 1954 Saturday: The cost to keep the Huguettes supplied north of the main camp at Dien Bien Phu have become too costly to keep up night after night. Fighting the past couple of nights has lasted nearly to dawn, seen too many good men killed and wounded, and has damaged some of the light tanks remaining to the garrison. There are so many Viet Minh troops surrounding the base now that fighting to hold outlying ground or worse- recapture it- is too much for the remaining defenders. They will leave the outlying posts to their fates.

  45. 2006 Monday: A Palestinian POS- a member of Islamic Jihad- killed 11 people and wounded loads of others when he detonated a bomb in the old bus station in Tel Aviv.  That’s the so-called ‘religion of peace’ for you.  A spokesperson for Hamas called it ‘an act of self-defense.’
  46. 2007 Tuesday: U.S. military deaths in Iraq have now surpassed 3,300 what with at least 58 being killed so far this month.  Not good.  Iraq says we killed three of their law enforcement officers today while civilians claim the U.S. fires on random families as they go about their daily lives.  We doubt this.
  47. 2008 Thursday: Chairman Lee Hung-Kee of the Samsung Group finds himself under indictment as on tax evasion and breach of trust.  Say it ain’t so.
  48. 2009 Friday: The Obama administration releases four memos from his predecessor President George W. Bush’s administration outlining torture of detained terrorist suspects.  President Obama promises no prosecutions for CIA agents which makes the leftists who voted for him thinking they were going to get some payback even more angry.   Meanwhile, a new study hits the news cycle claiming that the victims of most airstrikes in Iraq are ‘women and children.’  Somehow, we knew this would be the case…sounds like Hamas talking.
  49. 2010 Saturday: Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khomeini, calls for the expulsion of the United States from the international nuclear system because their religion prohibits the use of nuclear weapons and the Obama administration is saying hateful stuff about their intentions.
  50. 2011 Sunday: The Mid-April 2011 southern United States tornado outbreak results in over 30 deaths; North Carolina is the state worst affected.  Elsewhere, law enforcement authorities in Beijing go on a rampage, scooping up underground Protestant church members and whisking them off to holding pens.  So much for freedom of religion.  Oh, wait- the Chi-Coms don’t have ‘freedom of religion.’ 
  51. 2012 Tuesday: Senior members of the U.S. government admit that during the 6th Summit of the Americas that 11 U.S. Secret Service agents and possibly some military personnel were schlepping as many as 20 hos while in country in Colombia protecting President Barack Obama and other diplomats.
  52. 2013 Wednesday: In the U.S., a centerpiece proposal on background checks aimed at tightening gun control, fails in a Senate vote.  Elsewhere, in North Korea, border authorities are preventing South Koreans from supplying their fellow countrymen inside the now-shuttered Kaesong industrial zone.  The North Koreans want their apologies after yesterday’s burning of North Korea’s leaders in Seoul.
  53. 2014 Thursday: NASA’s Kepler space telescope confirms the discovery of the first Earth-sized planet in the habitable zone of another star.  Elsewhere, following the ferry disaster off South Korea, Korean navy divers continue searching for 290 people who still are missing.  What a mess.  Meanwhile, the Ukrainian military is angry over the previous day’s events what with the loss of six armored personnel carriers to ‘pro-Russian mobs.’  The unit that lost its vehicles is disbanded and its members charged with crimes of aiding and abetting the Russians.
  54. 2015 Friday: Russian leader Vladimir Putin accuses the Obama regime of ‘destabilizing the Ukraine’ by sending U.S. paratroopers to train Ukraine’s reserve military forces.  Sadly, even with a ceasefire agreement between Ukraine and ‘separatist rebels’ (who are really Russian and Chechen special forces), fighting continues unabated.  Elsewhere, as fighting continues in Iraq’s Anbar Province as ISIS continues drawing closer to Ramadi, civilians begin fleeing the city. 
  55. 2016 Sunday: Heavy fighting continues around the Afghan city of Kunduz.  The Taliban are trying to encircle the city so they can cut it off from the outside but Afghan government forces are having none of it.  They are giving as good as they get.  Taliban infiltrators are trying to penetrate government lines so as to set off attacks from within the city itself.
  56. 2017 Monday: The Chi-Coms continue infringing upon the borders of India by holding first-ever military drills with Nepal.  The Chi-Coms are like syphilis, they continue to spread and the only thing that can stop them is cutting them off the world body.  Meanwhile, Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli holding pens are on a hunger strike, protesting their food rations and quality.  Stop causing trouble and you can return home.
  57. 2018 Tuesday: Disgraced former FBI Director James Comey, detested by both Democrats and Republicans, publishes his (comic) book, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership.”  Big whoop.  It sinks almost as soon as it hits the book stores.   Elsewhere, the United States government releases the names of Japanese military and medical personnel who took part in the infamous activities of Unit 731.  This unit conducted medical experiments that rivaled the cruelty of ones conducted by their Nazi allies during World War II.  When the war ended, the U.S. scooped up 3,607 of the unit’s members and in exchange for not prosecuting them for war crimes also scooped up all their scientific information (as most likely did the Soviets).  It was horrible times back then.
  58. 2019 Wednesday: After an 18-year-old female obsessed with the Columbine massacre begins making threats, schools in Denver, Colorado, undergo closure until police locate her dead body.  Elsewhere, Ukrainian security agents apprehend a Russian hit squad responsible for slaying a Ukrainian politician and were planning additional attacks in their country at the behest of Vladimir Putin.
  59. 2020 Friday: Although there is positivity as to how the United States is contending with the Chinese lab-engineered COVID-19 pandemic sweeping the world, it is still taking its toll.  At the time of this posting, the United States acknowledges 661,712 confirmed cases of the Kung Flu what with 33,049 confirmed deaths but 58,360 confirmed recoveries which is amazing.  Around the globe, there are 2,224,426 confirmed cases of this suspect disease, 153,177 confirmed deaths but 565,957 confirmed recoveries which is truly grand.   China- get this- is beginning to tell the truth but is still lying as far as many of us believe. They have updated their total confirmed case number to 88,273 what with 4,632 confirmed deaths and 82,487 confirmed recoveries.  However, everyone understands that communist nations always LIE, that they do everything possible to cover up disasters, which is precisely what the People’s Republic of China is doing.  As for the Stock Market, the DOW Jones Industrial Average closed at 24,242.49, UP 704.81 (2.99%); the NASDAQ closed at 8,650.14, UP 117.78 (1.38%); and the S & P closed at 2,874.56, UP 75.01 (2.68%).   Some states around the country are beginning to undergo reopening procedures but hardcore Democrat-controlled states continue extending their mitigation efforts in the hopes of tanking the economy if they can.  We believe, however, that these Democrat leaders are going to pay a horrendous price in the next 2-3 election cycles.  Keep it up!
  60. 2021 Saturday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 140,379,953 confirmed cases, +1,105,338, 3,007,708  confirmed deaths, +18,118, and 79,972,688 confirmed recoveries, +613,470.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,824,596 confirmed cases, UP 142,550 from yesterday’s reporting, 572,155 confirmed deaths, UP 1,624, and 119,025,387 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.[vii]  In other COVID-19, a recent report says that Regeneron’s Chi-Vi cocktail can help prevent COVID-19 infections.
  61. 2021 Saturday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 246,196 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  Meanwhile, people are questioning WHY if everyone is getting their shots why the hell people must continue wearing masks like that dimwitted little troll, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci continues telling us to do.  WTF is up with that?  
  62. 2021 Saturday B: COVID-19 STATISTICS in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,714,406 confirmed cases, 60,883 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,162,067 confirmed cases, 34,404 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,510 confirmed cases, 473 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 385,695 confirmed cases, 5,427 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Connecticut, the home of two of the absolute worst senators in U.S. history- lying Dick Blumenthal and dimwit Chris Murphy: they have 329,062 confirmed cases, 5,365 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[viii] 
  63. 2021 Saturday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 836,936 confirmed cases, 6,331 confirmed deaths, and 828,235 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Tunisia, the original flashpoint for the Arab Spring: 281,777 cases of the virus, 9,639 confirmed deaths and 232,643 confirmed recoveries.[ix]  
  64. 2021 Saturday D: U.S. DOLLAR CONVERSIONS- Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.52 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.91.     In Guinean Franc, one greenback equals 9,947.00 and in Guyana Dollar, a buck equals 207.98.[x]
  65. 2021 Saturday 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 $3.963 per gallon, $2.829 in Florida, $3.755 in Hawaii, and $3.365 in Washington state.[xi]    Let’s look at one other location- Indiana: $2.847.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,182,529,180,837 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xii]
  66. 2021 Saturday F: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND I- Esteemed legal scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz blasted Democrats by saying ‘it would be a disaster to add additional justices to the U.S. Supreme Court’ which Democrats now want to do.  They claim that President Donald J. Trump and then-Senate Majority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell ‘got away with stealing two Supreme Court seats, the one Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch now holds as well as the one Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett now holds.’  According to Congressman Jerrold “Dough Boy” Nadler, DS-NY 10th congressional district, and Senator Ed Markey, DS-MA, both far-left losers claim both those seats belong to the Democrats so they believe the only thing to do is to expand the number of justices on the court.  Wow.   Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis, R-NY 11th congressional district, slams the Democrats over their court-packing scheme, saying it’s the worst thing she has seen since coming to Congress.
  67. 2021 Saturday G: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND II- Corey Lewandowski told Newsmax TV that the Chi-Coms pose a greater danger to the United States than do the Russians.  We concur.  Congressman Dan Bishop, R-NC 9th congressional district, told Newsmax TV that the ‘Russian bounty story,’ the one the Fake News media and liberal Democrats hammered President Donald J. Trump with for about half a year last year, a story we now know to be bogus,[xiii] demonstrates the hypocrisy of both the liberal media and of Joe Biden.  They lie through their teeth and then sweep it under the rug. 
  68. 2021 Saturday H: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND III- Federal officials reverse the fetal tissue research ban so scientists can once again use the remains of the aborted in their medical studies.  How nice.  Meanwhile, Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland erased Trump-era limits on consent decrees on the nation’s police agencies.  Once again, the left wants to politicize every police department as they are attempting to do with every other branch of the federal government.   Elsewhere, former House speaker and BIG LOSER John Boehner stands to rake in $20 million with his pro-pot and anti-GOP endeavors.  What a POS.  Next, Roger Stone is being sued for back taxes.  Finally, for some inexplicable reasons, following GOP leadership pushing back against the formation of an America First Caucus in the House, it seemingly now is not going to happen.  That sucks.  Who did it?  Kevin McCarthy?  Steve Scalise?  That skank, Liz Cheney?  They all need to go.  
  69. 2021 Saturday I: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND IV- Gary Gensler took the oath of office today to become the next head of the Securities and Exchange Commission.   Moving on, U.S. Secretary of the Interior Debra Haaland, the first Norwegian-Native American to hold the position has erased 12 President Donald J. Trump climate policies.  Bet you feel good, Madam Secretary.
  70. 2021 Saturday J: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS- The Iranians say they know who messed up their Natanz nuclear facility but the dirty dog somehow evaded their dragnet and escaped the country.  Hmmm.  They named this person as 43-year-old Reza Karimi, a person whom they claim somehow committed a dastardly act of sabotage and then skipped the country hours before the computers were trashed.  They have gone to Interpol seeking his immediate arrest and extradition back to the glorious Islamic Republic of Iran.  We hope he stays safe.  Elsewhere, incredibly stupid Alexei Navalny, Vladimir Putin’s Number One Critic, a person poisoned by Putin’s thugs, who then found a way to get to Germany for treatment, and then returned to the Motherland.  Once there, he was tried and sent to prison for bogus crimes and is now being tortured and force-fed since he is on a hunger protest.  Why did you return to Russia?   Finally, Prince Philip underwent burial today.  The Royal Family was there and Meghan Markle sent a wreath and a hand-written card.  Awesome.
  71. 2021 Saturday K: SUPER LOTTO AND POWERBALL DRAWINGS- first, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3552 with a $38 million on the line: 02, 07, 12, 29, 44, and Mega 03.  Out of 122,366 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $10,574 apiece.  Here are the four winners: (1) Chevron, Folsom, CA 95630 (2) Chevron, Corona, CA 92879 (3) 7-11, San Diego, CA 92128 and (4) Ralphs, San Diego, CA 92127.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #838 with a prize of $79 million on the line: 10, 21, 26, 41, 49, and Powerball 25. Out of 47,609 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $13,607 apiece.

Temple of Rock, the newest project by Michael Schenker continues rocking forward.  Joining the smoking hot guitarist from the Fatherland are bassist Francis Buchholz, Michael Voss (vocals), Herman Rarebell (drums), and Wayne Findlay (keyboards).  The resulting effort produced “Bridge the Gap,” which hit record store shelves on December 03, 2013.  One thing is for sure and that is you cannot keep good German rockers down as these guys have the fire in their bellies and it’s stoked up white hot.  We hope you will rush out and seek this one out NOW so you can add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

TODAY IN HISTORY, SATURDAY APRIL 17, 2021 #3,868

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

Saturday, April 17, 2021:

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] Not sure as to when we will get around to doing the music of Uriah Heep but we hope to do it at the same time we promote the music of Hawkwind.  We hope you will remain alert as to the day that we do.

[iii] Not sure when we will offer the music of the Jan Hammer Group but you can bet we will one day to be sure.

[iv] As always, our main source is “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, Da Capo Press, 2004.

[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.

[vi] We began promoting the music of Mountain beginning on Friday, 14-December-2012 through Sunday, 20-January-2013.  This also included West, Bruce & Laing but sadly, we overlooked Leslie West’s solo career so please stay tuned for his discography sometime in the next 8-12 years.

[vii] Bing has returned to reporting update numbers (well, mostly).  Here is the link: (1) covid-19 u.s. and global statistics – Bing

[viii] See previous.

[ix] We obtain our statistics for the coronavirus from: (1) covid-19 u.s. and global statistics – Bing

[x] (1) Currency Converter – Bing See this site for currency conversions.

[xi] AAA Gas Prices– See this site for nationwide daily gasoline averages.

[xii] U.S. National Debt Clock : Real Time (usdebtclock.org) See this site for the U.S. National Debt Clock.

[xiii] We knew it was bogus back then and mentioned it in numerous posts.  First, why would the Russians do something such as this when if they had said the Iranians did it, it would have been much more believable.  We would not have issues with the Russians today if the Democrats did not use them for their punching bag.  Russia did this, Russia did that, wah, wah, wah.  We don’t believe our two countries should be at odds with one another because all it’s doing is to push the Russians deeper into the Chi-Com camp.  No, we should try to have a friendly relationship with Moscow.  How about it, Joe?
