Richard Thompson released his next album- albeit on cassette back in the day- featuring a bevy of tunes from the archives- “Doom & Gloom from the Tomb Volume 2- Over My Dead Body” on March 16, 1991, too late for the winter holidays of Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa (and whatever the ‘religion of peace’ does) in 1990 but a great stocking stuffer later this year.  This efforts contains tunes from throughout his career up to this point, going from Fairport Convention, through his joint work with his ex-wife, Linda Thompson, and from his solo career.  There are many choice tidbits on this effort which is why we encourage everyone to visit whatever site it is you do for the best in music such as Amazon, Discogs, AllMusic, even the record store (remember those?) as you will be glad you did.  Seek it out- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

TODAY IN HISTORY, TUESDAY NOVEMBER 23, 2021, BLOG POST #4,266

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

Monday, November 23, 2020, Today in History Blog Post:  

Joe Biden said it best himself: we have created the greatest election fraud system the country has ever seen- why are very few taking him at his word?

Monday, November 23, 2020, Today in History:  

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

ENDNOTES:

[i] Had the Germans not been sidetracked by having to crush a recalcitrant Yugoslavia, which took six weeks, they would have invaded the Soviet Union in April or early May and most likely would have knocked the USSR out of the war.  The only thing that saved the Russians was “General Winter,” what with freezing cold enveloping the Axis troops.

[ii] Although Italian and Romanian troops had warned the Germans of major movement across the Volga River, the Germans relied on faulty intelligence and believed the Russians were spent and would not launch any counteroffensives over the winter.  Boy, were they wrong, the Russians amassed a humongous force and swept over the Axis troops north and south of the city, trapping the German defenders within the city in one of the largest land battles of the war.

[iii] We began offering the musi of Pink Floyd beginning on Monday, 20-April-2020 through Sunday, 12-July-2020.  This included not only the band’s music but also that of all five members- Syd Barrett, Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Rick Wright, and Nicky Mason.

[iv] We offered the music of Queen and of each of its band members beginning on Monday, 14-January-2019 through Monday, 01-April-2019.   Please seek out the music of this incredible British rock band.  We love them and know you will, too.

[v] Vice President Al Gore did everything possible to steal this election from Republican George W. Bush.  Thankfully, the legal system stopped the attempt, but this would not stop the Democrats from trying to do it again in 2016 and once they lost that election, spend every waking moment trying to get Donald J. Trump out of office instead of doing the work of the American people.

[vi] Since spinning off from the Soviet Union, the Ukraine has been among the most corrupt nations in the world as what example did, they have to emulate?  Now, in 2019, when President Trump wants to know WTF was going on in 2016 with the spying on him by the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign and the Obama-controlled State Department and U.S. Deep State, everyone goes bat crap crazy.  Enough!  It happened and it is time to find out what exactly happened and who exactly was behind it.

[vii] It is important to note that this Islamist POS tried to transform Egypt into an Islamist nation, opposed to Israel, and allied with the Muslim Brotherhood.  It is important to note that one of his biggest supporters on the world stage was our U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama who never met an extremist he didn’t like.

[viii] The important first step, according to sources, is that President Obama sought to enable the Iranians to develop nuclear weapons so it extremely important that when Donald J. Trump won the 2016 Presidential Election that he tore this crap up and threw it into the wastebasket.

[ix] We hope to begin offering Sly and the Family Stone’s discography sometime in 2022.

  59. 2017 Thursday: In Lahore, Pakistan, jihadists run amok killing at least 6 people and wounding loads of others.  The so-called ‘religion of peace’ strikes again.  Elsewhere, ECHL team the Alaska Aces says that the 2016-2017 season will be its final run after 28 years of playing hockey around the country.  The economy has had a downturn and ticket sales have gone way down.  Wait for the economy to revive.  It will under President Donald J. Trump.
  60. 2018 Friday: As the ‘Trump-Russia Collusion’ scandal continues, Rick Gates- part of Trump’s campaign team- pleads ‘guilty’ to charges of conspiring against the United States and for making false statements after Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III and his attack dog, lead attorney Andrew Weissman broke his balls, so-to-speak.  People’s lives are being ruined by a bogus, political witch hunt and yet, it grinds on and on.  Enough, already!
  61. 2019 Saturday: Clashes along the Venezuelan border with Colombia lead to two deaths as government officials try to stop humanitarian aid from crossing the borders of the ‘socialist paradise.’  However, as things continue to grow worse in Venezuela, 60 of that country’s National Guard members defect to neighboring Colombia.  Finally- they can get something to eat!  Meanwhile, another thug- Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir declares a national emergency, sacks all state governors, and dismisses the government.  Stay tuned.
  62. 2020 Sunday: As the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread across the world, Italy- a country friendly to the Chi-Coms- reports another 76 cases of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu which brings the number of cases there up to 155 with one death.  South Korea- also being hammered by the Chinese Virus- reports that 169 people have come down with the virus which brings their total to 602 infected.  The Chi-Vi, however, is not content to infect those countries; no, it’s also infecting Iran which leads Pakistan and Afghanistan to seal their borders with that Chi-Com ally.  Turkey also follows suit especially after it learns that Iran has three deaths within its borders.
  63. 2021 Tuesday: Today is Day 35 of the Biden Regime.  First, we must congratulate Joe Biden.  He has served as president longer than did William Henry Harrison who served just a month before dying from complications from pneumonia.  Congratulations there, Joe, you have made it five weeks as of today.   Next, former CIA Director James Woolsey says that the CIA and former KGB officials agree that the Soviets ordered Lee Harvey Oswald to assassinate President John F. Kennedy.  Apparently, Oswald, a man who defected to the Soviet Union and then who defected back to the U.S. had hopes that he would be a HERO in the USSR. 
  64. 2021 Tuesday A: Amazon and Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos is floating the idea of buying the Washington Redskins.  Next, golfer Tiger Woods is airlifted to the hospital following an automobile accident in California.  Initial reports are ‘hopeful.’  Elsewhere, some moronic Democrats in Florida have REFUSED to lower flags to half-mast as ordered by Governor Ron DeSantis in memory of the death of Rush Limbaugh.   Speaking of Florida, a poll within the state shows that Governor DeSantis is far more popular than either Senator Marco Rubio or Senator Rick Scott, both fellow Republicans.   Regarding Mr. Limbaugh, a virtual celebration of his life is in the works so please stick around for further information.
  65. 2021 Tuesday B: Security officials in Washington, D.C. are undergoing questions today as to what happened on January 06, 2021.  Several of the ones being questioned say they had intelligence suggesting that there would be unrest in the nation’s capital on that day.  However, the former House sergeant-at-arms, fired by House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi agreed that what was known did not support the request for federal troops.  Big mistake on their part.  Yet, most believe that Speaker Pelosi and perhaps Chuck Schumer banned any federal troops or additional law enforcement on scene because they knew in advance that (allegedly) Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs could work their magic.   Add to this the fact that the District of Columbia police chief expressed shock over NOT calling out the National Guard ahead of time to augment law enforcement.  President Donald J. Trump authorized as many as 10,000 Guard troops to Mayor Muriel “Black Lives Matter” Bowser but she refused (probably cos Speaker Pelosi ordered her to).
  66. 2021 Tuesday C: Indiana House of Representatives votes to remove license to carry a handgun within the state.  Next, the well-known hate group- the Southern Poverty Law Center- says that over the course of 2020, 160 Confederate monuments and statues were removed.  What a shame.  We must remember our history lest we forget it.   In other news, Dick Morris tells Newsmax that the American Left has terrorized the U.S. Supreme Court into remaining mum on the systemic electoral fraud that occurred on November 03, 2020.  However, Associate Justice Clarence Thomas authored a blistering dissent on the Pennsylvania election fraud case.  We love you, Clarence!   In other news, as the economy begins to falter, Federal Reserve chief Jerome Powell is heading to Capitol Hill today to testify on the U.S. economy. 
  67. 2021 Tuesday D: Illegal Alien News- some states are considering giving illegal aliens in-state tuition in another show of WOKENESS while keeping or raising tuition for in-state citizens and jacking up prices for out-of-state citizens.  Bet they feel really good about giving river swimmers and fence jumpers FREE tuition.   Meanwhile, as holding pens along the border fill up with illegal aliens, resources to care for this invading army are running out.  Boot them out of the country and back into Mexico.  Now.
  68. 2021 Tuesday E: The Department of Justice revives the investigation into George Floyd’s death.  Meanwhile, wimp Judge Merrick Garland continues deflecting questions during his confirmation hearings for U.S. Attorney General.  One thing he does promise is to go after evil white supremacists while black and Latino supremacists can go about their business.   Next, the U.N. confirms Linda Thomas-Greenfield as the next U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. 
  69. 2021 Tuesday F: Former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tells Newsmax that it’s a shame to ‘throw away’ the Trump administration’s success with Iran.  Speaking of Iran, the White House (meaning Barack through Kamala) is NOT ruling out using the pope as a go-between with Tehran and the U.S.  Speaking of Iran, Ric Grenell- former director of national intelligence- says there must be a ‘dive into the private negotiations between now climate czar John F. Kerry.’
  70. 2021 Tuesday G: The AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says that ‘political divisions’ (in which he had a hand) ‘led to more than half-a-million Chi-Vi deaths in the United States.’  The AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci also said today that ‘even vaccinated people should not dine indoors.’  Dr. Fauci, we say this with love: “SHUT THE F**K UP!”  Speaking of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, Johnson & Johnson announces they should be able to vaccinate 20 million people by the end of March.  Go for it but we won’t be in line, thank you very much.  Elsewhere, a misguided poll suggests ‘that MOST are confident that Joe Biden can get everyone vaccinated and schools reopened.’  Please!   In other healthcare news, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra is at Capitol Hill today shagging questions in his confirmation hearings for next head of Health and Human Services.  GOP lawmakers are concerned this ultra-leftist hack has NO experience- other than abortion at all stages- in healthcare.  We concur.  Still, for those of us who live in California, it would be great to get him out of here.  (Note- the libs are wetting their panties because Becerra would be the first Latino to head HHS).  Finally, the Biden team is searching high and searching low to find enough votes to push bigot Neera Tanden into the White House Office of Management and Budget.  We don’t want her!
  71. 2021 Tuesday H: House Democrats are working hard at de-platforming One America News (OAN), Newsmax, and Fox News Channel (although the last one, we are unclear as to WHY seeing as how they are overloaded with liberal, foaming-at-the-mouth Democrats).  They are also attempting to de-platform the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day which is why we are planning to change our format.   Meanwhile, the House Democrats are pushing H.R. 1, the “For the People Act,” a plan with which they plan on taking over the nation’s elections and making them like the mess we experienced last November.  This is not good.  We also learn that the transition from the Trump administration to Joe Biden was among the costliest transitions in U.S. presidential history. 
  72. 2021 Tuesday I: Spicer & Co. on Newsmax are investigating the Democrats’ war on Christianity.  Meanwhile, Google announces that it could soon lift the ban on political advertising, one they imposed on the country for the past several months.   Speaking of politics, failed Senator Kelly Loeffler, R-GA, has established a new voting group- Greater Georgia- with which to counter the dry rot Stacey Abrams- the ‘governor of the Peach State’- has embedded in the state.   Speaking of Georgia senators, another failed GOP Senator David Perdue says he WON’T be running in 2022 to get his seat back.  Loser.  
  73. 2021 Tuesday J: Coca-Cola, Nike, and Apple are lobbying to have a bill that prevents them from using Uighur Muslim slave labor in Xinjiang, communist China, softened or tossed so they can continue using slave labor to make their goods.  Coca-Cola also is encouraging its white workers not to be so white.  Does this mean that white workers can use CPT?  If so, that would be awesome!  Otherwise, stuff your wokeness where the sun don’t shine, Coke.   Elsewhere, Joe Biden is going to host a virtual summit with Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau so they can discuss what the nations share in common- climate change- and what they don’t- the Keystone XL pipeline that our northern neighbor wants to get back on track.  (This means Kooky Kamala will be the one doing the hosting).  In other exciting news, California is close to having 1.5 million VALIDATED signatures in the recall effort of Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom, an effort in which, Republicans, Democrats, and independents have all participated.  We want to get rid of this POS.  NOW!  (We have until March 17 to finish collecting and validating signatures).
  74. 2021 Tuesday K: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 112,072,132 confirmed cases, +374,686, 2,843,413, confirmed deaths, +10,328, and 63,217,963 confirmed recoveries, +243,313.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 28,526,532 confirmed cases, up 70,899 from yesterday’s reporting, 507,469 confirmed deaths, UP 2,310, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries with NO UPDATES NOW in at least four-plus weeks now (this number no longer even shows up).  This tells us the Biden administration no longer wants them reported.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 176,721 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, YOU claimed you had a plan to defeat the lab-engineered Panda Pandemic, what the hell are YOU going to do about it- sit on your ass playing pattycake with your grandchildren and blame everything on Donald Trump.
  75. 2021 Tuesday L: 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: 3,537,371 confirmed cases, 49,593 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,778 confirmed cases, 431 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 338,342 confirmed cases, 4,924 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Colorado: currently, they have 424,097 confirmed cases, 5,990 confirmed deaths but NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Amazing how very few states in the country report their recovery numbers.  Ask yourselves, WHY?  What purpose does it serve to provide case numbers, numbers of fatalities but nary a number of folks who have beat this vile Chi-Com virus.  What’s up with that?
  76. 2021 Tuesday M: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 759,572 confirmed cases, 5,634 confirmed deaths, and 712,555 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other country- Argentina: they have 2,077,175 confirmed cases of the Beijing Bug, 51,510 confirmed deaths, and NO 1,877,860 confirmed recoveries.   We will say this: the primary purpose of the Chi-Vi was to remove the threat of Trump- the Chi-Coms accomplished that goal.  The secondary goal (or so we believe) is to ‘cleanse the world’ of the old, the infirm, the sick, and the mentally disabled.  Anyone else who died from this Wuhan Institute of Virology lab-engineered virus is just collateral damage.  Shame on the Chi-Coms!  Time to take their criminal asses to the Hague and put them on trial.
  77. 2021 Tuesday N:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,537.35 UP 15.66 points (+0.05%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,465.20, DOWN 67.85 points (-0.50%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,881.37, UP 4.87 points (+0.13%).  The price of GOLD is $1,810.30 per troy oz., +4.40 (+0.24%) while the price of SILVER is $27.94 per troy ounce, +0.25 (+0.91%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,264.10 per troy oz, +24.40 (+1.97%) while the price of COPPER is $4.22 per pound, +0.04 (+0.91%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,344.70 per troy oz, -58.20 (-2.42%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $61.24 per barrel, -0.43 (-0.70%). 
  78. 2021 Tuesday O: Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Iranian Rial equals 42,000.00 (same as last week).  That’s what a terrorism-based economy gets you.  Next, here is the conversion for one U.S. dollar and Bitcoin: 0.000020.   In other economic news, consumer confidence has grown for a second straight month in a row with the index rising to 91.3 from 88.9 in January.  Consumer spending is about 70-percent of the U.S. economy. 
  79. 2021 Tuesday P: A federal judge orders the wife of Mexican cartel thug Joaquim Guzmán, aka El Chapo, to remain in custody following her arrest yesterday.  A federal prosecutor says that Emma Coronel Aispuro ‘worked closely with the command and control structure of her husband’s Sinaloa cartel to distribute cocaine, marijuana, crystal meth, heroin, and other illicit narcotics and drugs into the United States. 
  80. 2021 Tuesday Q: Elsewhere, Iranian state TV reports Tehran has officially begun restricting international inspections of its nuclear facilities.  The move is seen as a bid to pressure European leaders and the ‘Biden administration’ to lift all Trump-imposed sanctions.  They want to return to the JCPOA and the ‘Biden administration’ wants to return to the JCPOA so we believe the sanctions will be lifted without the West getting anything in return for their misguided confidence.  
  81. 2021 Tuesday R: Meanwhile, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, aka “BoJo,” recognizes the ‘deep ethical and moral’ implications and complications of urging the G 7 nations to commence using a COVID-19 passport for citizens to enter one another’s countries.  The UK could push for a ‘vaccine passport’ system throughout the continent once the G 7 nations establish this bulls**t.   This is where we are heading, thanks to the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci who has said, ‘masks don’t work,’ then ‘masks do work,’ ‘goggles might be necessary’ (he forgot earmuffs), then ‘several masks work’ and then ‘we might need to wear masks through 2022,’ and finally, ‘even with vaccines, we still cannot dine indoors.’  WHAT THE F**K?  This is what is destroying the planet. 
  82. 2021 Tuesday S: Five members of the ERCOT Board in Texas resign following their disastrous ‘non-handling’ of the power crisis over the past couple of weeks.  Meanwhile, Dr. Alan Dershowitz, an amazing legal scholar, says that two House Democrats want to establish ‘red channels’ with which to use counter-McCarthyism by banning Fox News, One America News Network, and Newsmax.   Give the leftists an inch and the leftists will grab miles.  With Rush Limbaugh dead, conservative talk radio, television, and blogs under attack (like ours), the liberals are launching a massive offensive to silence ALL of us.   In other crazy news, Senator Mitt Romney, RINO-UT, says, ‘if Donald Trump runs in 2024, he’ll win the GOP nomination.’
  83. 2021 Tuesday T: Following the family of slain Capitol Hill police officer Brian Sicknick questioning the cause of his death on January 6, 2021- the day of the INFAMOUS Antifa- and- Black Lives Matter-infiltrated Trump supporters who stormed the Capitol and caused mayhem, only Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert asks, ‘where is the intel that shows we still need to surround the Capitol with wire and troops?’  It’s akin to the Democrats making the Capitol into a Green Zone, like the one in Baghdad, Iraq, which is crazy.  It tells us here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM the Democrats intrinsically KNOW they stole the 2020 Presidential Election (as well as Senate races in Georgia, Michigan, and perhaps even Colorado) and fear the wrath of the American people.  WE KNOW WHAT YOU DID, DEMOCRATS… In other news, White House reporters question Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki as to ‘WHY we have NEW cages, what appears to be Quonset hut holding pens, for illegal alien brats.’  This is criminal and yet the Dems are NOT moaning and screaming about it.
  84. 2021 Tuesday U: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1636 with $22 million up for grabs: 05, 07, 09, 20, 57, and Mega 15.  The highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $194,546.  The winning ticket was sold at the Westside Market in Santa Barbara, CA 93101.

T. 1942 Monday A: Fighting on the Eastern Front continues to rage as Soviet armor, infantry, and air forces commence rolling up the Italian Eighth Army north of Stalingrad as well as Hungarian troops in the area. Field Marshal Erich von Manstein is mulling what he can do regarding the German Sixth Army trapped in Stalingrad and his thoughts are not good: his armored units are overextended and allied Axis troops are being destroyed. A decision will come soon.

  49. 2016 Wednesday: The evacuation of civilians from eastern Aleppo in Syria continues as the United Nations announces it is going to establish a war crimes tribunal to punish those guilty of such crimes.  Good luck with that.   Elsewhere, Donald Trump announces he is going to nominate noted economist Peter Navarro to the White House National Trade Council.  Liberals go berserk because he is anti-China.  Not until 2020 would we learn just how many American politicians are in the back pockets of the Chi-Coms.  A shocking number.   President-elect Trump also chooses Carl Icahn- someone whom the left labels a ‘corporate raider’- as a special adviser on regulatory reform.  Of course, the leftists are upset…
  50. 2017 Thursday: Following President Donald J. Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, the United Nations- always taking the sides of the Palestinians- lights him up- verbally.   Meanwhile, the Red Cross announces that cholera cases in war torn Yemen now total 1 million.  It is a humanitarian disaster.
  51. 2018 Friday: In Ecuador, law enforcement and military personnel get their man when they track down FARC thug- Walter Arizala- criminal and drug trafficker- and kill him in a gun battle.  The authorities sought the POS for the murders of two journalists earlier in the year.  Elsewhere, in the Czech Republic, a mining disaster occurs when a methane explosion in Karvina claims the lives of 11 Poles and 2 Czechs.
  52. 2019 Saturday:  While House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi continues to hold her two articles of impeachment against President Donald J. Trump close to the vest, the White House thinks she is going to cave.   Meanwhile, RINO Republican former governor of Massachusetts says, ‘Republican senators will be voted out of office if they march in lockstep behind President Trump.’  Elsewhere, after a massive pile-up of 69 vehicles on a Virginia interstate highway, local officials close the road.  It is said that poor weather such as fog may have led to the mass collisions.  
  53. 2020 Monday: First, we learn that in Georgia, 1.3 million PLUS voters have early voted in the Peach State using the same corrupt Dominion Voting Systems machines with the same corrupt Democratic hacks running the run-off elections as ran the general election and with the same corrupt POS RINO Governor Brian Kemp and the same corrupt POS RINO Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger overseeing the process.  Do we expect either Senator Kelly Loeffler said to hold a 52-46 lead over communist NOI-loving scumbag Reverend Raphael Warnock or Senator David Perdue who is said to hold a 50-48 advantage over “Pro-China Jon” Ossoff to win?  We sure as heck don’t.   We expect fraud to win and to win BIG.
  54. 2020 Monday A: The NYPD caught 150 people early this morning at an illegal nightclub in the Big Apple.  Next, Utah RINO Senator Mitt Romney says, ‘the GOP has strayed from the importance of character.’  Mitt, STFU, please.  Meanwhile, Congress is said to have reached agreement on a $900 billion COVID-19 relief package for the American people which is purportedly close to where they started 2-3 months ago.  What is apparent is that neither House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi or Senate Minority Leader “Crying Chuck” Schumer wanted to help the American people.  Shame on them.   U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin says ‘$600 stimulus checks could be going out next week.’  Elsewhere, Congress agrees on a matter of significant importance: removing the statue of General Robert E. Lee from Statuary Hall.  Wow.  Our lives will be changed for the better!
  55. 2020 Monday B: The Trump administration cuts the size of the Arctic lands available to be auctioned off for natural gas development.   Elsewhere, Pope Francis promises Vatican employees that no one will lose his or her job due to the Chi-Com Bat Flu.   Speaking of the ‘Pope,’ he says- get this- that ‘vaccines made using aborted fetal tissue is ETHICAL.’  If there was ever reason to leave the Catholic Church, this is it.  The vicar of Christ no longer represents the Holy Trinity but has shown his hand as Satan’s minion by his allegiance to the DEEP CHURCH.  Time for the College of Cardinals to topple this Third World POS and to find a European to head the Church.
  56. 2020 Monday C: As Brexit begins to seem like it might actually happen, leftist Britons are scrambling to seek residence in Spain and Portugal.  Speaking of Great Britain, the U.S. says that ‘everything is on the table’ when it comes to enacting a travel ban on the UK due to the increasing cases of a new strain of the Chi-Vi.  People are sick all over Britain and sadly, there are some who are still naïve enough to believe that the Chi-Coms did not create this disease for use as BIOWARFARE against the globe.
  57. 2020 Monday D: Outgoing U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr lays out charges against the Libyan bombmaker whose handiwork brought down the Pan-Am flight over Lockerbie, Scotland, back in 1988.  The AG then says he has ‘no plans’ of appointing a special counsel to investigate Hunter Biden and the Biden Family.  What a disappointment you are, sir.  Meanwhile, a House panel subpoenas HHS and CDC representatives to testify regarding their ‘lackluster response’ to the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Seems like the administration did an excellent job.  
  58. 2020 Monday E: Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms attack President Donald J. Trump over his inference that they were behind the hacks and the spying.  Former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley says there’s ‘no doubt the Chi-Coms were involved.’  Of course they were, it’s what they do.  Regarding the Chi-Com hacks, the U.S. Treasury Department says there are ‘no signs the communists caused any harm to the Treasury Department.’  Speaking of the CCP, we learn today that BIG TECH is launching an all-out blitz to influence the Biden administration into doing whatever it and their masters in Beijing want.   Proof of this is that the New York Times won’t touch the story of Chi-Com agent, California Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell, the man who attacked President Trump but who was schlepping a Chi-Com intel agent for five-plus years.  Wow.
  59. 2020 Monday F: As for the Beijing Bug, here are the numbers for the CHI-VI, you know, COVID-19 Chinese Bat Flu Virus Crisis, the pandemic they started but still try to blame on the U.S.:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 77,188,346 confirmed cases, +656,621, 1,699,285, confirmed deaths, +9,360, and 43,522,242 confirmed recoveries (again, this number has been readjusted DOWN from a week ago-something strange is occurring), +342,299.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Xi Jinping Bat Flu pandemic: 18,083,146 confirmed cases, up 283,477 from yesterday’s reporting, 321,518 confirmed deaths, UP 3,019, and 8,000,113 confirmed recoveries, UP 142,452.
  60. 2020 Monday G: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 1,910,120 confirmed cases, 22,820 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 20,291 confirmed cases, 282 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 227,122 confirmed cases, 3,170 confirmed deaths (for some unknown reason, less than last week’s count), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Pennsylvania, currently, they have 569,413 confirmed cases, 14,015 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries which seems to be the way of the world at present  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife have moved there: 374,760 confirmed cases, 3,099 confirmed deaths, and 348,107 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at another nation: Mexico: they have 1,320,545 confirmed cases of the CHI-VI, 118,2020 confirmed deaths and 978,002 confirmed recoveries.
  61. 2020 Monday H: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 30,216.45, UP 37.40 points (+0.12%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  12,742.52, DOWN 13.12 points (-0.10%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,694.92, DOWN 14.49 points (-0.39%).  Price of GOLD: $1,884.40 per troy oz., +1.60 (+0.08%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $26.48 per troy oz., +0.096 (+0.36%).  Price of PLATINUM: $1,012.60 per troy oz., -3.50 (-0.34%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,316.40 per troy oz., -55.60 (-2.34%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.58 per #, +0.0075 (+0.21%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $47.80, -0.17 (-0.35%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.55 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.82 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.95 Afghan Afghani.
  62. 2020 Monday I: Here is tonight’s Monday Night Football Matchup: (16) Pittsburgh Steelers, 17 (11-3) @ Cincinnati Bengals, 27 (3-10-1) Monday Night 5:15 P.M. That’s right- NO mistake- the Bengals clobbered the Steelers with third-string quarterback Ryan Finley.  You go, kid, you go!
  63. 2020 Monday J: Friends, stick around to discover what the Chi-Coms and their lackeys around the world are up to today- including the Democrats!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On November 12, 1982, the J. Geils Band released their next album, a live one- “Showtime.”  Although the album features the same lineup as their earlier efforts- John “J.” Geils (guitars), Peter Wolf (vocals), Seth Justman (keyboards/vocals), Danny Klein (bass/vocals), Stephen Jo Bladd (drums), and “Magic Dick” (harmonicas/saxophones)- for some reason, it’s not as powerful as their previous two live albums, “Live- Full House” and “Blow Your Face Out” as well as the fact that it lacks several tunes one would think should be included such as “Freeze-Frame,” “Flamethrower,” “I Could Hurt You,” as well as another live version of “Looking for a Love” as well as “Where Did Our Love Go?”  Ah, well, it is what it is and this is what they gave us.  As completists, we love a group’s entire catalogs which is why we encourage the readers to seek it out wherever you shop for the finest in rock music and consider adding it to your ever-growing collection.

ENDNOTES:


[i] Modern-day Democrats claim this is the beginning of slavery and evil in the founding of America.  We say, “F**k them,” as they are- with the exception of our liberal, Democrat, or progressive members- are full of crap.

[ii] 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.

[iii] We hope to present the music of this foundational American rock band within the next 5-6 years.  Please stay tuned for further developments.  We thank you; we know you love the Beach Boys as much as we do.

[iv] We hope to promote the music of both the Band and its members sometime in the next 10-15 years.

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

[vi] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.

[vii] We shared the music of the Hollies with the world beginning on Monday, 29-August-2016 through Thursday, 03-November-2016.

[viii] We hope to promote the music of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, as well as of each member’s solo careers along with Crazy Horse within the next 5-7 years.  Please remain vigilant for when we do.

[ix] This horrendous atrocity was committed by members of the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam.

[x] Once again, the atrocities committed in Mumbai were committed by members of the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam.  Evildoers.

[xi] Thank you, President Obama, this rule was a long time in coming as passengers kept inside planes on the tarmac due to overcrowding of aircraft at an airport risked going to jail if they tried to give up their seats and get the hell off the airplane.  Still, three hours is a long time to sit immobilized but far better than having to sit 8-12 hours.

[xii] We promoted the music of Iron Butterfly beginning on Saturday, 27-July-2013 through Thursday, 08-August-2013.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your ever-growing collection of rock music.  Nothing one finds today compares with the classic rock of old.  Throw out your Maroon 5 albums and go with the crème de la crème of the 1960s and 1970s.

348. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, DECEMBER 13, 2020

V. 1942 Sunday: Reichskommissar Artur Seyss-Inquart proclaimed Dutch Nazi Anton Mussert leader of the Netherlands on this date. Meanwhile, on the Eastern Front, the 6th Panzer Division arrived at Aksai River. They paused there to permit 800 trucks bringing supplies for the Sixth Army trapped in Stalingrad to catch up to them. Once they did, they set off on their next goal, a dash to the Mishkova River where Soviet resistance would begin stiffening. Field Marshal Erich von Manstein was trying to communicate with Lt. Gen. Friedrich von Paulus in the doomed city but Soviet countermeasures made communications difficult. Coordinating the breakout became challenging.

Bush.  This occurred after the U.S. Supreme Court ordered a stop to the ongoing Florida recount thus giving both the state and the presidency to the Texas governor.  Speaking of Texas, the so-called ‘Texas Seven’- a band of seven incarcerated thugs breaks out of the John Connally Unit near Kenedy, Texas, and go on a rape, robbery, and murder spree.  They were on the lam until concerned civilians noticed them posing as ‘Christian missionaries’ and fingered them to the cops.  Eventually,  four of them were executed in Texas’ death house.

  46. 2004 Monday: A jury in Redwood City recommended the death penalty for Scott Peterson for the murder of his pregnant wife, Laci, and their unborn child.  Across the globe in Seoul, South Korea, self-proclaimed cannibal Yoo Young-Chol, accused of killing and eating 20 young women, mostly prostitutes, receives the death sentence.
  47. 2005 Tuesday: A European Union investigation into CIA activities on European soil- and elsewhere in the world- leads to allegations of the Central Intelligence Agency’s kidnapping and abductions of European citizens.  They contend the U.S. spy agency spirits the hapless individuals to secret black site prisons.  That damned President George W.

  48. 2006 Wednesday: Two al-Qaida attacks in Kirkuk and Baghdad, Iraq, kill at least 23 Iraqis and wounds approximately another 52 people.  
  49. 2007 Thursday: The U.S. Senate passes a bill that would increase automobile fuel standards for the first time in three decades.   Elsewhere, a USMC soldier is found guilty of killing an Iraqi soldier while the two were standing guard in Fallujah.  We are sure he must have a good reason for killing the man.

  54. 2012 Thursday: European Union finance ministers vote to give European Central Bank new powers to supervise Euro Zone’s banks.   Meanwhile, after the GOP announces to plans to challenge her nomination for U.S. secretary of state, U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice withdraws her nomination.

  58. 2016 Tuesday: Much to the horror of American liberals, President-elect Donald J. Trump chooses Texas Governor Rick Perry to become his secretary of Energy.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of Energy is bucking the Trump transition team by refusing to provide the names of its members who worked on the Obama climate change strategy.  Yet in 2020, with ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden appearing to be ‘incoming,’ the Dems are calling for UNITY.  Hypocrites.  Next, President-elect Donald J. Trump chooses Montana Congressman Ryan Zinke to become his secretary of the Interior.
  59. 2017 Wednesday: In Yemen, a Saudi-led airstrike on a Houthi rebel camp in the nation’s capital of Sana’a kills at least 30 Iranian-backed terrorists and wounds loads of others.  Light ‘em up!  Meanwhile, Palestinian militants fire a barrage of rockets into Israel.  The minister of defense said the Iron Dome took out two of the missiles while one went down in an open field.  Retribution soon to come.
  60. 2018 Thursday: The U.S. Senate voted 56-41 to end participation in the Saudi war in neighboring Yemen where Iranian-backed Houthi rebels are trying to overthrow the Arab nation.   Then, the Senate passed a unanimous resolution that Saudi Crown Prince Mohamed Bin Salman was 100-percent responsible for the murder of Saudi American journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
  61. 2019 Friday: House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-NY, announces the committee will return on Tuesday for a final impeachment vote which will then leave the whole charade up to Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-KY, in the Senate to proceed with an impeachment trial.  Some Democrat loudmouths demand that Sen. McConnell recuse himself because of his stated coordination with the White House.  What is it about the Dems that they are ALWAYS trying to stack the deck in their favor?  
  62. 2020 Sunday: In a strange twist of fate (yeah, right), reports continue surfacing that show ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden’s son Hunter did not report $400 thousand in cash given to him by none other than Burisma, the natural gas energy company in the Ukraine.  Speaking of Burisma, corruption, and Democrats, we now learn that POS Democrat Congressman Adam Schiff of California ALSO has problems with corruption scandals seeing as how he is linked to several corrupt Ukrainian and other foreign companies and oligarchs such as Igor Pasternak who donated vast sums of cash to the derelict congressman’s campaign fund.  Other companies to whom Congressman Schiff is tied are Black Rock and Franklin-Templeton.  Add this to Congressman Eric Swalwell, another California Democrat, and his ties to Beijing via schlepping Ministry of State Service female intelligence agent and you can easily see that whatever Democrats accuse others of doing is what they themselves are guilty of doing.   Speaking of corrupt Democrats, former staffer to New York Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo, aka Andrew the Murderer, Lindsey Boylan claims the governor sexually harassed her off and on during the time in which, she worked for the dimwitted governor from March 2015 to October 2018.
  63. 2020 Sunday A: The NYPD launches an investigation into what is occurring in Brooklyn- two EMS units have been held up at gunpoint with medical supplies and equipment being stolen from them within one week of another.  Speaking of crime and medicine, the FBI warns the American people to be aware of scams surrounding distribution of the COVID-19 vaccines.   Elsewhere, health officials say a ‘twindemic’ is unlikely in that cases of the flu are down this year so a twin pandemic of flu and the Chi-Vi are highly unlikely.
  64. 2020 Sunday B: U.S. Congressman William “Bill” Pascrell, D-NJ 9th District, urges his master, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi NOT to seat 126 Republican congressmen all because they are defending President Trump in his fight against the rampant corruption that occurred in several battleground states around the country.  He feels they are unfit for service.  What will the senile speaker do?  Meanwhile, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA, and Senator Tim Scott celebrate the life and times of the first black American to serve in Congress after the U.S. Civil War- Congressman Joseph Rainey, of South Carolina’s 1st House District.  When Senator Scott was Congressman Scott, he represented the same district.
  65. 2020 Sunday C: Moms for America is going to throw a Keep Christmas Rally and Celebration to push back on ever sectarian government’s drive to blot out Christianity.  We must drive every anti-Christian and anti-Semite out of office.   Meanwhile, in Washington, D.C., at the Bus Tour for Trump Rally, My Pillow guy, Mike Lindell, blasts fascist governors around the country for using the Xi Jinping Bat Flu as an excuse for imposing harsh restrictions and draconian lockdowns on their citizens.  In addition to this, he also blasts election fraud and questions WHY the Fake News Media did NOT release the Hunter Biden laptop story prior to Election Day.  Elsewhere, in the state of Missouri, a man who once was a gangbanger- Darrion Cockrell- becomes the state’s 2021 Teach of the Year.  Congratulations!  (Mr. Cockrell is a physical-education teacher at Crestwood Elementary School).
  66. 2020 Sunday D: On the foreign front, Russia fires off four ballistic missiles in tests.  Meanwhile, the United Kingdom and the European Union are still working to make Brexit a reality even as the UK sends several patrol boats to protect English fishing waters from encroachment by EU fishing boats. Elsewhere, the U.S. Navy ends search for U.S. Navy sailor who purportedly went over the side of the USS Theodore Roosevelt into the waters of the eastern Pacific Ocean.  The sailor- 20-year-old Aviation Ordinanceman Airman Apprentice Ethan Goolsby hails from San Antonio, Texas.

  69. 2020 Sunday G: 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: 72,084,868 confirmed cases, +619,208, 1,610,265, confirmed deaths, +9,027, and 47,064,409 confirmed recoveries, +1,521,606.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 16,322,151 confirmed cases, up 164,818 from yesterday’s reporting, 302,058 confirmed deaths, UP 1,480, and 7,443,901 confirmed recoveries, UP 45,374.

  71. 2020 Sunday I:  Even though it’s Sunday, we understand that the Chi-Coms via their allies in Iran, Russia, and Canada- along with their bozos in the Democratic Party- are up to no-good which is why we encourage everyone to stick around and uncover what these dog-eating Chi-Coms and their partners in crime are up to today… One thing we learned today is that Columbia University accepted $1,000,000 from the Confucius Institute in Beijing.  While they claim it’s on the up-and-up, everyone knows they are taking Chi-Com money in exchange for access to research secrets.  MF-ers!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

A year later, the J. Geils Band released “Hotline” on September 09, 1975.  Once again, the band featured the same lineup of John “J.” Geils (guitars), Peter Wolf (vocals), Seth Justman (keyboards/vocals), Danny Klein (bass/vocals), Stephen Jo Bladd (drums), and “Magic Dick” (harmonicas/saxophones).  As always, the band was roaring with power and the tunes here are phenomenal, especially our favorite, “Love-itis,” as in disease.   Although a fabulous live act, album sales varied from album to album but hey, if you love good rock and roll music and are depressed by the modern crap with which we are bombarded on a daily basis, then this band is one everyone must check out.  There is no comparison between bands of 40-50 years ago with the garbage they try to tell us is music now.  Maroon Five?  We piss on you and on Adam Levine.  Even U2 leaves much to be desired and they are from 30 years ago or more.  Please, check it out and give it a good listen- you will be so glad you did.  We guarantee it.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

One can never keep a good thing down and no one could keep Foreigner DOWN.  The latest lineup went into the studio and cranked out the next studio album, a two-CD/1 DVD set called “Can’t Slow Down.”  The first CD is all new material, the second is a remake/remix of older tunes, and the third features DVD performances of the band doing what they do best and that is blowing the socks off the listeners.  Here is the lineup for this effort: Mick Jones (guitars), Thom Gimbel (guitars, vocals, keyboards, and horns), Michael Bluestein (keyboards), Jeff Pilson (bass, vocals), Brian Tichy (drums), and Kelly Hansen (vocals) as well as some supporting musicians for both the studio and the live recordings.  Say what you will about bands that refuse to die, any music they release is better than any of the crap younger ears are assaulted by day in and day out.  If you want to change the direction of a young person’s life away from some skank with a single name or some K-Pop crap, or God forbid, Maroon Five, this is the way in which, you can flipping do it.

TODAY IN HISTORY, MONDAY NOVEMBER 23, 2020

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

Monday, November 23, 2020:

FOOTNOTES:


[i] Had the Germans not been sidetracked by having to crush a recalcitrant Yugoslavia, which took six weeks, they would have invaded the Soviet Union in April or early May and most likely would have knocked the USSR out of the war.  The only thing that saved the Russians was “General Winter,” what with freezing cold enveloping the Axis troops.

[ii] Although Italian and Romanian troops had warned the Germans of major movement across the Volga River, the Germans relied on faulty intelligence and believed the Russians were spent and would not launch any counteroffensives over the winter.  Boy, were they wrong, the Russians amassed a humongous force and swept over the Axis troops north and south of the city, trapping the German defenders within the city in one of the largest land battles of the war.

[iii] We began offering the musi of Pink Floyd beginning on Monday, 20-April-2020 through Sunday, 12-July-2020.  This included not only the band’s music but also that of all five members- Syd Barrett, Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Rick Wright, and Nicky Mason.

[iv] We offered the music of Queen and of each of its band members beginning on Monday, 14-January-2019 through Monday, 01-April-2019.   Please seek out the music of this incredible British rock band.  We love them and know you will, too.

[v] Vice President Al Gore did everything possible to steal this election from Republican George W. Bush.  Thankfully, the legal system stopped the attempt but this would not stop the Democrats from trying to do it again in 2016 and once they lost that election, spend every waking moment trying to get Donald J. Trump out of office instead of doing the work of the American people.

[vi] Since spinning off from the Soviet Union, the Ukraine has been among the most corrupt nations in the world as what example did they have to emulate?  Now, in 2019, when President Trump wants to know WTF was going on in 2016 with the spying on him by the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign and the Obama-controlled State Department and U.S. Deep State, everyone goes bat crap crazy.  Enough!  It happened and it is time to find out what exactly happened and who exactly was behind it.

[vii] It is important to note that this Islamist POS tried to transform Egypt into an Islamist nation, opposed to Israel, and allied with the Muslim Brotherhood.  It is important to note that one of his biggest supporters on the world stage was our U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama who never met an extremist he didn’t like.

[viii] The important first step, according to sources, is that President Obama sought to enable the Iranians to develop nuclear weapons so it extremely important that when Donald J. Trump won the 2016 Presidential Election that he tore this crap up and threw it into the wastebasket.

[ix] We hope to begin offering Sly and the Family Stone’s discography sometime in 2022.
