  20. 1913 Friday: Famed black bluesman, Muddy Waters[i], was born in Clarksdale, Mississippi, on this date.
  21. 1915 Sunday: During World War I, Czarist forces continue trying to fight through the Carpathian Mountains and some of them are able to capture some outlying towns.  Still, the Kaiser cannot permit his main ally- and the reason for having gone to the war in the first place because of the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand and his wife Sophie- to be knocked out of the war as it would leave Imperial Germany open to invasion from the south.  On the Southeastern Front- Russian forces are driving into Armenia in the hopes of liberating their fellow Christians from a repressive Ottoman Empire (as well as to add additional territory to their domain).
  22. 1916 Tuesday: The U.S. Senate agrees by a vote of 82-6 to join the side of the Allies in World War I.  Meanwhile, on the Western Front, all eyes are fixed on Verdun.  The death toll is horrendous for both the German attackers and the French defenders.  The loss of life in this terrible battle would cause some French units to refuse to fight.  Elsewhere, on the Southeastern Front where the Russians are fighting a series of battles from the Carpathian Mountains to Armenia, the Czar makes a change in command- General Aleksei Brusilov in place of General Nicolay Iudovich Ivanov.  Soon, General Brusilov would design the so-called “Brusilov Offensive” that would almost knock the Central Powers to their knees.
  23. 1917 Wednesday: The U.S. Senate voted 90-6 to enter World War I on the Allied side.  This would drive the Germans to launch a major offensive all across the Western Front in the hopes of pulverizing both the British and French forces before any American help can arrive.   Still, the ravages of hunger and in some places, starvation, is threatening all sides as the farmlands every nation depended upon for food have become battlefields.  The German U-Boats are trying to starve Britain while British warships continue trying to keep the Central Powers unable to import any outside foodstuffs.  Civilians are becoming desperate everywhere.
  24. 1918 Thursday: The Germans are launching all-out assaults on the Western Front along the Somme and Avre Rivers, the goal once again to knock the Allies out before all is lost.  The Imperial German forces have been able to bring most of their troops from Eastern Europe for one last push although they have to make sure the Russians stick to the agreement they hammered out with Berlin in exchange for not having large portions of their western territories like the Ukraine kept as war booty.
  25. 1919 Friday: Allied troops continue fighting with White Russian forces to subdue the cancer of communism that is engulfing Russia, Eastern Europe, and even popping up in parts of eastern Germany where the authorities have their hands full.  The Germans are in dire straits, being blamed for the entire war when they were not the ones who started it; no, they came to the aid of their Austro-Hungarian allies and the rest is history as they say.
  26. 1932 Monday: After five years of research, Professor C.G. King of the University of Pittsburgh, isolated vitamin C.
  27. 1933 Tuesday: The Navy airship USS Akron crashed in severe weather off the New Jersey coastline with the loss of 73 lives.
  28. 1938 Monday: In Chicago, Illinois, Joe Louis knocks out Harry Thomas in 5 to retain the NBA heavyweight boxing title.  In doing so, Louis’ record improved to 35-1.
  29. 1940 Thursday: Acting on intelligence, French law enforcement scoops up almost 40 communists attempting to reform the outlawed communist party.  Most of them would get five years in prison while others would be let go.  Tensions are growing and with threat of a HOT WAR only weeks away, the French want to eliminate internal problems.
  30. 1941 Friday: The Afrika Korps conquers the Fascist Italian, North African port of Benghazi, Libya, driving the British into headlong retreat.  German and Italian motorized columns roll through the streets and jubilant civilians celebrate their arrival.   Elsewhere, as Germans move towards Yugoslavia, Adolf Hitler also approves a plan for the Nazis to aid their fumbling Italian allies and knock Greece out of the fight.
  31. 1942 Saturday: The Luftwaffe launches a major attack on the Soviet naval base at Kronstadt.  Although the German warplanes inflicted damage on 13 vessels, they were unable to sink any of the fleet.
  32. 1944 Tuesday: French General Charles de Gaulle forms a new government with communists among it, preparing to return to Paris when the Allies land on the Continent.  On the Eastern Front, the Germans are launching localized counterattacks with the Fourth Panzer Army which capture the western Ukrainian city of Kovel and throw back the Soviet defenders.
  33. 1945 Wednesday: The Red Army liberates Hungary from the Nazis.  Meanwhile, U.S. forces liberated the Nazi death camp Ohrdruf in Germany.  All roads lead to Berlin right now as the Allies continue forging ahead, wiping out resistance wherever they find it.
  34. 1948 Sunday: Future bassist of the Allman Brothers Band[ii], Berry Oakley was born in Chicago, Illinois.  Meanwhile, future drummer of the British rock band, Dire Straits[iii]—Pete Withers—was born on this date in Leicester, England.  
  35. 1949 Monday: Twelve nations, including the United States, signed the North Atlantic Treaty in Washington, D.C.
  36. 1952 Friday: In Belfast, Northern Ireland, future member of Thin Lizzy[iv]– Gary Moore- is born.  He would perform with the famed rock band on guitars/vocals from 1974 to 1977 and again from 1978-1979.  Elsewhere, the 61st U.S. Attorney General James P. McGranery assumed his office on this date.  A Democrat, he served under President Harry S. Truman from April 04, 1952 to January 20, 1953.
  37. 1954 Sunday: Fighting continues around Dien Bien Phu as heavy artillery bombardments continue to fall on French positions on the Huguettes and the Elianes.  The communists have been throwing one human wave after another against the French positions but they won’t submit to the Viet Minh thugs.  The fight drags on.[v]

  39. 1958 Friday: At Aldermaston, England, the first march against nuclear weapons takes place.

  54. 2003 Friday: As rumors spread about Saddam Hussein being dead from American airstrikes, he goes on state TV, references the recent shooting down of a U.S. Apache helicopter, and boasts to the world that he ‘is still alive and in charge.’
  55. 2004 Sunday: PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat boastfully dismisses Israeli threats to whack him.   U.S. and other world leaders blast Israel for saying they might do a horrible thing such as murdering a world-class terrorist who has more innocent blood on his hands than any other Islamist thug.
  56. 2005 Monday: Palestinians in the West Bank are going berserk today when word has it that Israel is going to begin dumping 10,000 tons of garbage in landfills in the area.  Of course, the Palestinians claim it’s going to foul their water supply and that it’s a breach of international treaties and the like.  We say, ‘shut up, when you stop treating your citizens like garbage, urging them to commit acts of jihad, maybe the Israelis won’t treat YOU like garbage.’  (Note- Moses Scharbug III is responsible for this opinion).  Elsewhere, insurgents in Iraq launch an attack on Abu Ghraib prison to free their jihadist brethren injuring American and Iraqi troops and jailers.  The guards are able to fight the scumbags off. 
  57. 2006 Tuesday: Tom Delay, R-TX, the former majority leader in the U.S. House of Representatives announces his resignation.  Meanwhile, labor protests continue in France what with millions taking to streets across the country demanding the First Employment Contract not be put into effect.
  58. 2007 Wednesday: As House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi continues her ‘listening trip’ across the Middle East, the Israelis are having none of it, especially since she visited Syrian mass murdered President Bashar al-Assad the previous day.  Prime Minister Ehud Olmert blasts “Mumbles” for the Syrian trip saying that it was a ‘major mistake.’  He also denies that the befuddled Democrat politician handed him a ‘peace proposal.’  If she did, she probably forgot it a day later.
  59. 2008 Friday: Law enforcement authorities launch a raid on Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints owned by YFZ Ranch in Texas nets 401 children and 133 women taken into state custody.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of State renews a contract with Blackwater Worldwide- a company that provides security via mercenaries- to continue protecting U.S. diplomats in the world’s troubled hotspots.
  60. 2009 Saturday: Costa Rica, Malaysia, and the Philippines find themselves in trouble today.  You ask why?  Well, the Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development blacklists them for being tax havens where the wealthy can hide their money.  What is wrong with that:  We all want to be able to do that… elsewhere, in North Waziristan, Pakistan, a U.S. drone strike whacks 13 jihadists convening with one another.  Yikes.
  61. 2010 Sunday: In the mine rescue in Shanxi, China, rescuers pull out 114 miners after pulling out the other 39 or so the previous day.  These poor souls have been trapped down there for more than a week so God bless them for rescuing these poor workers.  Elsewhere, the war in Iraq continues to rage as Islamist thugs set off simultaneous car bombs outside the German, Iranian, and Egyptian embassies.  Many people on the street are killed or injured.
  62. 2011 Monday: Reports claim that China has successfully modified cows to produce ‘human milk’.  People- does this not scare the living f**k out of you?  What the hell is this communist hellhole doing?  Enough is enough.  Meanwhile, the Israelis have their hands full with the Arab Spring as the Palestinians are causing havoc along the border with Gaza and their country.  Israeli warplanes are crisscrossing Palestinian airspace letting them know that if they step out of line, they are going to light them up.
  63. 2012 Wednesday: The first deployment of U.S. Marines arrives in Australia’s city of Darwin in the Northern Territory.   Elsewhere- we hate to say this, some nations were better off under colonialism– a suicide bomber attacks the National Theater in the Somali capital of Mogadishu while a ceremony was underway killing at least 10 people and wounding God knows how many others.  Fascist Italy, please come back!
  64. 2013 Thursday: Pulitzer Prize –winning film reviewer Roger Ebert, 70, died in Chicago, Illinois.  Meanwhile, the Hubble Space Telescope observes the most distant supernova on record on this date.
  65. 2014 Friday:  The 16,480-foot Tungurahua volcano erupts twice; the volcano is located about 90 miles south of Quito in Ecuador.  Elsewhere, in a smart move, the South Korean military test fires some ballistic missiles that they hope with some improvements will be able to hit any target in the territory of their northern neighbor, North Korea.  Meanwhile, in West Africa, the rampaging Ebola epidemic has killed at least 90 people in Guinea and Liberia and now the first case has appeared in Mali.
  66. 2015 Saturday: Syrian and other Middle Eastern refugees continue to flood across the Mediterranean with the Italian navy rescuing 1,500 over the past 24 hours.  The only way to halt this insanity is for the Europeans to begin sinking the refugee vessels.  Meanwhile, the United States Army in the Obama era (it would have to be) is probing allegations that its members committed sexual assaults while deployed there between 2003-2007.  Ah, the Bush-Cheney years, that’s Barack Hussein Obama for you.
  67. 2016 Monday: Vietnam says, ‘enough is enough’ when it comes to Chi-Com intrusions into their fishing waters with their ‘fishing fleets’ which in reality, are military operations.  Vietnamese naval and marine assets board this ship and then take it under tow back to one of their ports.  Of course, Beijing starts making all manner of threats.  In the 78th NCAA Men’s National Basketball Championship, Villanova defeats North Carolina by a final score of 77-74. 
  68. 2017 Tuesday: Syrian government forces launch a chemical weapons attack on Khan Shaykhun resulting in at least 80 civilian deaths and countless others injured.  President Barack Obama had warned Bashar al-Assad that ‘if he crossed the red line and used chemical weapons, there would be hell to pay.’  No hell to pay until Donald J. Trump became president.  Meanwhile, according to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Chinese retail giant Alibaba becomes the world’s largest retailer.  You go, China, you go. 
  69. 2018 Wednesday: Since the U.S. Congress won’t act to do something on the U.S.-Mexico border, President Donald J. Trump grasps the bull by the balls and sends the U.S. National Guard to aid struggling Customs and Border Patrol officers attempting to deal with one wave after another of illegal alien invaders.  Of course, the 45th president suffers all manner of criticism for attempting to halt Democrats AND RINO Republicans’ beloved illegal aliens.  Democrats want voters and RINOs like cheap labor.  We say, “Militarize the southern border with minefields, antivehicle, antipersonnel, anti-boat obstacles, a massive wall, artillery positions, and even seed the Rio Grande with alligator pups.  When the latter grow up, they will patrol the river…
  70. 2019 Thursday: The Church of Latter-Day Saints- aka the Mormon Church- promises to roll back anti-LGBTQIA+ policies which include not baptizing the children of gay parents.  Bowed to pressure, did you?  What a shame.  Meanwhile, the governor of Guam- Lourdes “Lou” Leon Guerrero, Democrat, signs a bill permitting for the recreational use of marijuana.  Elsewhere, in the aftermath of the Christchurch mosque massacres, both New Zealand and Australia pass laws prohibiting the posting of violent content online.  If such content is posted, it must be removed immediately or the service providers must face the consequences.
  71. 2020 Saturday: The Wuhan Virus- straight out of Wuhan, China- continues claiming lives around the world and ruining much of the global economy.  Although Beijing continues to claim that things are ‘looking really great in China,’ everyone knows this is little more than propaganda put forth by their state-run media.  Shame on them.  Current figures for today are more than one million confirmed cases what with more than 64,000 confirmed deaths worldwide.  In the United States, there are 312,076 confirmed U.S. cases and 8,496 confirmed deaths.  When this crisis ends, the world will hold the communist government of China accountable and as Chef Goldie McNamara has said, President Donald J. Trump should demand a return to the Two-China Policy, of recognizing the equality of Nationalist aka Free China as a separate entity from the People’s Republic of (Communist China).
  72. 2021 Sunday: HAPPY EASTER!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Michael Schenker Group released a 4-CD retrospective live album featuring four complete shows recorded in the early 1980s when he had just formed his solo band. “Walk the Stage- the Official Bootleg Box Set” came out on May 30, 2009.  Joining the legendary German guitarist are well-known and much beloved members of his solo band: vocalist Gary Barden, Chris Glen (bass), Andy Nye and Paul Raymond (keyboards), and Ted McKenna and Cozy Powell (drums).  Always a wild rocker, Schenker puts on one hell of a great show and these four shows encapsulated on four discs (plus a fifth- a DVD)- albeit five-star bootleg quality- are well worth whatever price eBay might be charging for it, which at the time of this writing was running around $157.00.  We hope you will seek this one out because the man and his band have been with us for a long, long time.  You will enjoy this album so please, seek it out wherever you shop for the best in rock music- you can thank us later.

  59. 2017 Saturday: The Trump transition team accuses Robert S. Mueller of illegally obtaining campaign emails.  The Mueller investigation is obtaining ‘evidence of collusion between President Donald J. Trump and Vladimir Putin in unlawful ways.’  Since the evidence does not exist, it would suggest that the special counsel is manufacturing his own evidence.
  60. 2018 Sunday: With the threat of a partial government shutdown looming, the White House dug in on its demand for $5 billion to build a border wall as congressional Democrats stood firm against it.  Meanwhile, over increasing scandals, U.S. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke announces he is going to step down from his position.
  61. 2019 Monday: Congressional Democrats continued trying to find their collective balls to go into the House Rules Committee the next day so they could hammer out the rules for the impeachment trial of President Donald J. Trump.    Meanwhile, Democrats running for the nomination of their party are begging DNC Chair Tom Perez to change the rules for inclusion for the January and February debates.  The rules’ demand for polling and donation numbers to meet certain criteria is preventing many of them from being able to participate.  
  62. 2020 Wednesday: Texas wants to become the home of the U.S. Space Force Command.  Next, President Donald J. Trump doubles down on his claims of FRAUD in the 2020 Presidential Election which are becoming clearer and clearer by the day.  He says, “Bad things happened in the 2020 Presidential Election” and must be addressed.  He also told Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY, that it’s ‘too soon to give up on the election’ even as Mitch and his leadership are urging their fellow GOP senators NOT to contest the election in early January.  However, in January 2017, House Democrats interrupted the proceedings no less than ELEVEN times in their bid to stop Trump from becoming the 45th president and to secure the election for Hillary Rodham Clinton.
  63. 2020 Wednesday A:  The American Civil Liberties Union calls for a release of half of ALL inmates in U.S. prisons and jails because of the Chi-Vi threat.  They probably want all illegal aliens released, too.  Let’s deport them ASAP.  Meanwhile, federal prosecutors indict Canadian pervert Peter Nygard, a fashion designer, on multiple charges of sex-trafficking.  Hmmm, seems like we have a junior Jeffrey Epstein here.
  64. 2020 Wednesday B: The U.S. Senate Homeland Security Committee chaired by Ron Johnson, R-WI, and ranking member, Sen. Gary Peters (who was beaten by John James in November but who maintains his seat thanks to rampant voter fraud in his state), D-MI.  Witness Christopher Krebs, recently fired by President Trump still maintains ‘no signs of foreign interference in the election’ but that ‘fraud is a criminal matter.’  He also states that ‘rumor control is extremely important.’   Chairman Ron Johnson says the “GOP is not peddling Russian disinformation’ and tells his colleague Senator Peters ‘to stop lying, that all he does is lie and to stop spreading Russian disinformation, himself.’  Amen.  Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, then asks a question regarding ‘if non-legislators changing election laws without the involvement of state legislators is okay’ which everyone with half-a-brain or more knows is NOT.
  65. 2020 Wednesday C: Regarding the Senate Homeland Security Committee meeting on the rampant voter fraud that occurred in the 2020 Presidential and Senatorial elections, Christopher Krebs says it’s ‘important to use paper ballots so there is a paper trail which would have provided the necessary evidence as to whether there was cheating or there was not.’  Amen to that, too. We also learn that Pennsylvania was among the most corrupt states with more dead people, more illegal aliens, more multiple voters, more made-up voters, and more underage voters than anywhere else in the country.  Send Gov. Wolf to prison. 
  66. 2020 Wednesday D: In the same Senate committee hearings as outlined in the previous two points, Senator James Lankford, R-OK, says back in 2016, ’32-percent of the American people believed that Vladimir Putin and the Russkies interfered in the U.S. Presidential Election to help Donald Trump and to hurt Hillary Rodham Clinton.  We did hearings then so what is wrong with holding hearings now, especially when 75 million plus Americans voted for Donald Trump’ and as Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, says ‘are not going to just go away no matter how much Democrats want them to.’  Amen to that, too.  In 2016, Dems weren’t going to move on whereas NOW, they want everyone to move on and to embrace “Pro-China Joe” Biden and “Kooky Kamala” Harris as our next president and vice president.  F**k them.
  67. 2020 Wednesday E: Senator James Lankford, R-OK, also says that his state as were numerous others done with vote counting on Election Night as the country always has but look in amazement at other states STILL counting votes more than two weeks after Election Day and stating, ‘we don’t know how many ballots are left to be counted.’  Senator Lankford also points out to the Eric system- the Electronic Voter Information Center used by 30 states to monitor if people are voting more than once or in a series of places.  All states should be using this.  Senator Lankford also says that in HIS state, voter fraudsters are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law while in states with rampant voter fraud like Nevada has yet to punish anyone even with 42,000 dead voters having voted.  The Trump campaign witness and adviser Jesse Binall concurred that NO one has faced prosecution in the Silver State.
  68. 2020 Wednesday F: Regarding the election, Wisconsin Election Commission Director Meagan Wolfe calls for legislation for election reform in her corrupt state due to widespread irregularities across her state.  Meanwhile, President Trump wants a special counsel appointed to investigate Hunter Biden and perhaps his father.  Elsewhere, we learn that the Senate races in Georgia are tied- David Perdue v. Jon Ossoff and Kelly Loeffler v. Islamist ‘Reverend’ Raphael Warnock.  Mitch: we would be inclined to donate more cash to help the GOP candidates if you would stand with President Trump, you RINO POS.  Meanwhile, Cardinal Raymond Leo Burke says that ‘the Democrats are seeking a GREAT RESET in the United States with which to force Marxism down our throats.
  69. 2020 Wednesday G: National security adviser Robert O’Brien cuts his European trip short to rush home to deal with the ongoing Russian-Chi-Com-and-other foreign intel agents hacking into the U.S. federal government as well as taking down YouTube, Gmail, and Google.  Meanwhile, White House counsel urged President Trump not to fire POS FBI Director Christopher Wray.   Finally, Ken Starr will square off with Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg in a Texas court regarding Facebook’s interference in the 2020 Elections and the vast amounts of cash Zuckerberg dropped on various entities in the election ostensibly to help them in their efforts to (1) steal the elections and (2) to censor information favorable to President Trump and the GOP.  Send this punk to prison.  Speaking of punks, it’s official, “Pro-China Joe” Biden names Mayor Pete Buttigieg to be his secretary of Transportation.   Princess, uh, Mayor Pete will become the first openly gay person to head a Cabinet position. 
  70. 2020 Wednesday H: In other news, scientists suggest that kangaroos can learn to communicate with human beings.  We believe every creature on Earth is evolving but evolution is extremely slow so no one truly notices it.  Next, Major League Baseball finally does something it should have done decades ago and that is to elevate the Negro Leagues to MLB status so all records and information will become a part of MLB history.  God bless you!  Elsewhere, feel-good liberal Dodge City, Kansas, Mayor Joyce Warshaw resigns her post after claiming she has received ‘so much email and mail threatening her life over her support of a comprehensive mask mandate.’  Wah, wah, wah, STFU.   In other news, the dictator of Turkey- Tayyip Recep Erdogan calls sanctions emplaced upon his country because it bought a Russian defense system to be an ‘attack on his nation.’  Dude, you need to shut up and GO.
  71. 2020 Wednesday I: Internal documents released on the fly from the World Health Organization, the corrupt organization in the pocket of wannabe global dictator Xi Jinping, show that their distribution plan for release of the Wuhan Virus vaccine are doomed to fail.  Elsewhere, that ignoramus Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Sandy Cortez, aka Baby Evita, aka AOC, aka “The Fly,” says ‘both Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer need to go.  NOW.’
  72. 2020 Wednesday J: Here are the latest stats for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, straight out of Wuhan, China: 74,087,090 confirmed cases, UP by 1,865,456 cases, 1,646,687 confirmed deaths, UP by 34,673 deaths, and 41,893,773 confirmed recoveries, DOWN by 5,324,462 recoveries from yesterday’s figures- curious.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 16,961,262 confirmed cases, UP by 273,102 new cases, 308,762 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,280 new deaths, and 7,688,057 confirmed recoveries, UP by 203,304 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt POSs).  Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 360,630 confirmed cases, 3,014 confirmed deaths, and 338,784 confirmed recoveries.
  73. 2020 Wednesday K: 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: 1,671,081 confirmed cases, 21,481 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 19,590 confirmed cases, 278 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION OF confirmed recoveries anymore- what is up with YOU, Gov. Ige, you Democrat hack.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 212,488 confirmed cases, 3,084 confirmed deaths, but like California, the gorilla-faced 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, Florida: 1,155,355 confirmed number of cases, 20,480 confirmed deaths, and sadly, no mention of the confirmed number of recoveries- thank you.   Speaking of the Yellow Fever 2020, a healthcare worker in Alaska was given the vaccine injection and immediately began having harsh reactions to the drug and had to be placed into the hospital.
  74. 2020 Wednesday L:  2020 Wednesday E: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,154.54, DOWN 44.77 points (-0.15%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,658.19, UP 63.13 points (+0.50%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,701.17, UP 6.55 points (+0.18%).  The price of GOLD is $1,867.30 per troy oz., +8.20 (+0.24%) while the price of SILVER is $25.44 per troy ounce, +0.393 (+1.57%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,040.00 per troy oz, +4.60 (+0.44%) while the price of COPPER is $3.56 per pound, +0.005 (+0.14%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,348.20 per troy oz, +24.20 (+1.04%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $47.86 per barrel, +0.04 (+0.08%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.53 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.86.
  75. 2020 Wednesday M: Stay tuned for tonight’s Super Lotto #3517 Draw with a $14 million jackpot and the Powerball #803 Draw with $277 million up for grabs.  Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto first: 04, 06, 11, 12, 17, and Mega 09.  Out of 97,848 winning tickets, the highest winners were 26 people who had four numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $604 apiece.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball: 04, 23, 37, 61, 67, and Powerball 07.  Out of 95,182 winning tickets, the highest winners were 3 people who had four numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $15,585 apiece. 
  76. 2020 Wednesday N: Final news for the night: Fosun Pharma seeks to buy 100 million does of Biontech’s Chi-Vi vaccine for shipment to mainland communist China.   Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Senator Tom Cotton, R-Arkansas, is pushing a bill designed to punish Beijing for their annual $1 billion industry of forced organ harvesting from prisoners and members of religious groups.  No wonder the communists in Beijing HATE Senator Cotton.  The Stop Force Organs Harvesting Act would put the Chinese Communist Party thugs on notice that they must stop this egregious human rights abuse.  Elsewhere, Vice President Mike Pence will take the Beijing Bat Flu vaccine on live TV at the White House.  Particulars to come.  Finally, a federal court tells Ohio they cannot block trannys seeking to change their birth certificates to reflect their ‘identities.’
  77. 2020 Wednesday O:  Friends, we know the Chi-Coms, their lackeys Canada, Russia, Iran, Venezuela, Cuba, and other assorted Third World s-hole countries- as well as their stooges in the Democratic Party- are up to no-good.  Stick around to discover crimes they’ve committed today…

[ii] We shared the music of the Hollies with the world beginning on Monday, 29-August-2016 through Thursday, 03-November-2016.  We encourage everyone to check out the music of this well-known British Invasion band.
