- 2015 Monday: In his final Daytona 500 race, Jeff Gordon starts out strong but loses his lead in the fourth lap after hitting another car, which allows Joey Logano to win it.
- 2016 Tuesday: In the Republican Primary Election in Nevada, billionaire Donald J. Trump wins with a 45.9.5% of the vote. Elsewhere, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announce they are investigating 14 cases of the Zika virus that might have been sexually transmitted.
- 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.
- 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!
- 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.
- 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.
- 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 hoped that he would be a HERO in the USSR.
- 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.
- 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).
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.’
- 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!
- 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.
- 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.
- 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).
- 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.
- 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?
- 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.
- 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%).
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.’
- 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.

Beverly Carrick: The World’s Greatest Artist (1927-2012)
ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
UMC- the label owning the Richard and Linda Thompson catalog- compiled an 8-CD box set featuring EVERYTHING the duo recorded over the course of a decade. “Hard Luck Stories 1972-1982” came out on August 01, 2020, and contained so much music that it would require the good portion of a day to listen to all it. Thank God record companies are willing to do the work of the people by compiling everything from within the vaults, putting it an attractive package, and providing all sorts of extras because without them and their efforts, fans would be oblivious to the music of their favorite artists. We hope everyone will rush out and check out this glorious package as we think fans of the man and his then-wife will enjoy it as much as we do. Look for it now.
