Colonel Pierre Langlais confronts Colonel Christian De Castries and demands a reordering of the command structure.  Castries is somewhat subdued, his chief-of-staff Lt.

Trump.  
  61. 2017 Friday: Thanks to schmucks such as House Speaker Paul Ryan, the Trump administration and their GOP allies in the House of Representatives are forced to pull their plan to overturn Obamacare and to replace it with a better plan.   Meanwhile, the House Intelligence Committee goes to war with itself over the bogus Trump-Russia Collusion scam, the very same engineered by the Democrats.  Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, and ranking member, the locoweed Adam Schiff, DS-CA 28th congressional district, are butting heads over information coming out that shows that the Obama administration SPIED on the then-Trump campaign.

Mueller III investigation into Donald Trump, Trump campaign officials, and Vladimir Putin’s Russia by saying that ‘Mueller’s team had found no evidence of collusion between now-President Trump, members of his campaign, his friends and family and Russia nor was there any sign of obstruction.’  In effect, this clears the president and those around him other than those convicted of process crimes during the investigation.  The Democrats could not handle the outcome and rushed to the microphones braying like dogs for ALL the evidence and promise to continue the witch hunt into Mr. Trump.  The investigation began- many believe- in late 2015 or early 2016 and involved members of the Hillary Clinton team, Barack Obama Justice Department and FBI officials, as well as foreign operatives hired by members of the Obama team to set up candidate- and then- President Trump.  
  64. 2020 Tuesday: Democrats continue stalling in the U.S. Senate by holding up Wuhan Virus relief legislation by trying to stuff in Green New Deal, Pro-Death, union, identity politics, election fraud such as ballot harvesting in ALL 50 states, and more.  Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell continues rebuffing them in the hope that honest and legitimate legislation can occur.  Meanwhile, the world around mid-day acknowledges approximately 414,277 cases of COVID-19, with 38,819 new cases over the past 24 hours.  Global deaths are 18,557 what with 2,146 in the previous 24 hours.  In the United States, there are 51,542 cases of the Kung Flu with 8,328 new cases over the past 24 hours.  There is a total of 674 deaths, up by 95 over the previous 24 hours.  The Dow Jones Industrial Average closes UP by 11.3% or up 2,112.98 points, closing at 20,764.91.  Bravo. 
  65. 2020 Tuesday A: Bill Rieflin- drummer with King Crimson from 2013-15 / 2017 until today- died in his hometown of Seattle, Washington, on this date at age 59.  Cancer was the cause.

  67. 2021 Wednesday A: GOP NEWS– Utah Governor Spencer J. Cox, GOP, signed a measure that will put filters on porn sites within the state.  Excellent.  Meanwhile, GOP-lead states are fighting the good fight against Joe Biden’s increasingly insane policies, wish lists of liberal loony tunes spending and deprivation of the American people’s rights.  Elsewhere, Senator Chuck Grassley, R-IA, is pushing the Justice Department to continue the probe into perjury charges against the crackpot witnesses the Democrats trotted out to smear now-Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh.  Christine Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramirez, and Julie Swetnick should all be doing time in federal prisons for the bulls**t they pulled at his confirmation hearings back in 2018.  Get them, Chuck!  Finally, President Donald J. Trump is supporting Max Miller in his bid to unseat RINO Congressman Anthony Gonzalez in Ohio’s 16th congressional district.  Gonzalez voted to impeach President Trump if you recall.
  68. 2021 Wednesday B: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I–  The person who used to be known as Prince Harry, aka Mr. Meghan Markle, is taking a no-show gig as the ‘chief impact officer’ at a Silicon Valley startup, Betterup, that will help emotionally challenged individuals- like his wife and boss- overcome their issues.  Bravo, Harry, bravo.  Sort of like Hunter Biden working at Burisma.   Meanwhile, Senator Bernie Sanders says that he is ‘uncomfortable’ with the permanent ban placed on President Donald J. Trump by Twitter.  However, President Trump says he has ‘no plans to return to Twitter,’ seeing as how he is in the midst of creating his own untouchable social media platform.   Next, the New York Justice Department says the impeachment probe into Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo could continue for months.  So, charge him with the homicides of 15,000-20,000 people and get him out of office.  NOW.
  69. 2021 Wednesday C: FOREIGN/OVERSEAS NEWS–  Vladimir Putin’s chef- businessman Yevgeny Prigozhin- has written to the Federal Bureau of Investigation demanding he be removed from a most-wanted list.  The FBI put a bounty of $250,000 atop his head last month for his apprehension and extradition to the United States over bogus charges he somehow meddled in the 2016 Presidential Election on behalf of then-candidate Donald J. Trump.  He says the FBI must stop offering the reward as it violates several principles under human rights laws.  That’s Joe Biden for you, looking for fall guys he can blame for his own shortcomings such as Hunter Biden being in the hip pockets of both the Ukraine and China.  Meanwhile, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declares victory in the recent elections, but the majority is still unclear.   Elsewhere, a massive container ship in the Suez Canal has run aground due to high winds and is blocking passage to other ships.
  70. 2021 Wednesday D: SECOND AMENDMENT/GUNS NEWS– Representative Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district, says the Dems are ‘playing politics with our lives’ over their renewed drive to strip the American people of their guns.  (Note- we’d like to see them try.  First, there are going to be SO-O-O MANY gun thefts in this country, the cops will be tied up seeking them while secondly, it’s like what former NRA boss Charlton Heston used to say: ‘you can have my guns when you pry them out of my cold dead fingers.  Joe- NO one is going to surrender their guns, NO one.  Come and get them.  Chef Alvin).  Still, after the POS Syrian Muslim refugee Ahmad Al-Aliwi Alissa[viii] killed 10 WHITE people at the King Soopers Grocery Store in Boulder, Colorado, earlier this week, the Dems began to go bat-crap-crazy in pushing their gun-grabbing bills.   Joe Biden says he doesn’t have to ‘wait for Congress’ to begin stripping guns.  Go for it, Joe.
  71. 2021 Wednesday E: SECOND AMENDMENT/GUN NEWS II– Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer[ix] swears on his mother’s soul that the two firearms bills sent to him from the House of Representatives will receive swift attention.  “Kooky Kamala” Harris is urging swift hearing and passage of these gun-grabbing bills.  Interesting note- John Bachman of Newsmax says that the ‘Democrats are hypocrites.  They claim to hate guns, yet they spread guns all over the world’ selling them to thugs, criminals, terrorists, murderers, and other human trash.  He reminded his viewers of the Obama era “Fast and Furious” program that put military grade weapons into the hands of Mexican narcoterrorists.  
  72. 2021 Wednesday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– ‘The (Communist) Squad in Congress now claims that NOT supporting statehood for Washington, D.C., is RACIST.  The federal district was NEVER intended to be a state, girls, it was pulled together from several states so that NO single state would claim rights to sole ownership of the federal government.  No, just because lots of black folks live there does not make it ‘racist.’  Everyone living in the District of Columbia knows the score.  Shut the f**k up.  Next, Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell says that H.R. 1 is a bald political power grab.  Mitch- you should have supported President Donald J. Trump when you had the opportunity.  Now, shut the hell up.  Finally, the Wisconsin State Assembly authorizes an investigation into election fraud in the 2020 Presidential Election.
  73. 2021 Wednesday G: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– “Coincidence of the Day”- last week, Dr. Moncef Slaoui said that ‘President Donald J. Trump bears 90-percent of getting the COVID-19 vaccine programs underway what with Operation Warp Speed and Joe Biden just 10-percent.  Today, GlaxoSmithKline terminated Dr. Slaoui for purported sexual harassment allegations against him.  Wow.  Is this not amazing?  Cancel Culture strikes yet again.  Defend Trump and you lose your job.  Well, we defend Trump- WTF are YOU going to do to US?   Next, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says AstraZeneca soon to release an updated report on its coronavirus vaccines.   Meanwhile, Caribbean nations are begging the Biden administration NOT to be stingy with the coronavirus vaccines, to please, remember the countries on the U.S.’ third border.  (Note- when these countries do something about the horrendous foodborne illness visitors typically acquire upon eating their first meals there, we will send you vaccine.  Otherwise, STFU).  Finally, five years after his untimely death, famed rock star Prince’s ashes will go on public display.
  74. 2021 Wednesday H: ODDBALL AND HUMOROUS NEWS OF THE DAY– By a final vote of 52-48 (with RINO Senators Lisa Murkowski, RINO-AK, and Susan Collins, RINO-ME, confirmed the nomination of tranny (woof!) former Pennsylvania Health Secretary Rachel Levine to become the next assistant secretary of health.  Okie dokie.  Aren’t we proud as a nation!  Next, a chick with a dick,[x] Kataluna Enriquez has been crowned Miss Silver State USA, one step away from competing in the Miss Nevada USA pageant.  In yet another slap to the faces of women and girls, the tranny beat out numerous biological females to become the first beauty pageant winner with a dong swinging down under.  Folks, what the hell is going on?  Almost makes one wish the Chinese would take the country over.  Oh, speaking about ‘affronts’ to women, “Kooky Kamala” Harris and former President William Jefferson “Bill” Clinton are teaming up on a program with which to empower women.  Does anyone see the irony in this? [xi] (They are already receiving massive blowback for this bulls**t symposium).
  75. 2021 Wednesday I: U.S. BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE– Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, swears to ‘shut the Senate down’ if the Biden administration denies him access to the southern border.  Senator Marsha Blackburn was visiting the border today and she said, ‘what a mess.’  Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador says that ‘Joe Biden bears full responsibility for the ongoing border catastrophe.’  Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says that ‘Joe Biden’s rhetoric and his first day actions are responsible for the border catastrophe.’   Speaking of this crisis, this holocaust, Joe Biden has yet to name a nominee to head the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol.   Meanwhile, Congressman Henry Cuellar, D-TX 28th congressional district, says that the ‘migrants must be made known as to what awaits them on this side of the border.’  The border states must find a way with which they can finish the wall on their territory if they cannot do it on federal land.  Steve Bannon, where the hell are YOU and YOUR charity to fund border wall construction?

  81. 2021 Wednesday O: Stay tuned for tonight’s Super Lotto and Powerball drawings.  First, here are the results for the Super Lotto Drawing #3545 with a pot of $31 million on the line: 10, 11, 13, 32, 38, and Mega 17.  Out of 111,151 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $19,815 apiece. Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #831 with a $220 million pot on the line: 04, 09, 17, 27, 38, and Power 18.   Out of 95,606 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $25,606. 
  82. 2021 Wednesday P: END OF THE NIGHT NEWS I– Tesla now says that its customers can buy their electric vehicles with Bitcoin.  Having bought $1.5 billion in Bitcoin several months back, any cars bought with Bitcoin will remain in their Bitcoin account- they are not going to convert it into dollars.  Next, the Joint Chiefs of Staff spokesperson said that yes, indeed, North Korea did fire at least one projectile into the East China Sea.  That’s Kim for you- NO respect for Joe Biden.  Meanwhile, as 14 states sue the Biden administration for its almost immediate crackdown on all energy projects on federal lands, the U.S. Department of the Interior announces that it’s going to review all existing and applications for fossil fuel drilling on federal lands.  With a Norwegian-Native American in charge, Debra Haaland, you know there won’t be any new drilling and many existing oil and natural gas leases will be shut down.  Windmills and solar farms.  
  83. 2021 Wednesday Q: END OF THE NIGHT NEWS II– Virginia Governor Ralph “Black Face” Northam signs a bill that will end capital punishment in the state.  Since its inception as a British colony, there have been 1,400 executions.  Since the U.S. Supreme Court reinstated the death penalty in 1976, there have been 113 executions which ranks the Old Dominion State second only to the Lone Star State in the number of executions carried out.  Still, Governor “Black Face” says the death penalty should be available for especially heinous crimes but throughout history, the death penalty has fallen mostly on minorities, the mentally ill, and the poor.  Elsewhere, Intel is going to build two chip-manufacturing plants in Arizona, so says CEO Pat Gelsinger.  Not only will it produce chips for its own purposes, but it will also serve as a ‘foundry,’ which means it will build microchips for other companies.  The company will qualify for about $90 million in tax credits when construction is completed, and it will also provide at least 3,000 high-paying jobs.  Even better, it will become an alternative source for chip manufacturing so if Asia craps out or withholds chips from Western nations, problem solved.  
  84. 2021 Wednesday R: END OF THE NIGHT NEWS III– U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken visited NATO headquarters in Brussels, Belgium, today and informed our allies that ‘America was back’ and that we would not put our ‘allies in a position of ‘us or them,’ meaning- we guess- that if the Germans want to buy natural gas from the Russians, the nation against whom the victorious Western allies created the North Atlantic Treaty Organization to defend against- then so be it.  It is what it is.  Meanwhile, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg invited the Russians to return to having an observatory role in the organization.  Secretary Blinken wants the organization to remain strong against both Russian and Chinese hegemony and that if the Chi-Coms cause problems for one country, they cause them for all countries within the group.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, they blasted the U.S. today for everything from being a racist nation to its out-of-control spending.  Ouch.
  85. 2022 Thursday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The reformed Band released their next album, “High on the Hog,” on February 27, 1996.  Once again, the group performed numerous covers but what the heck- they performed them with verve, class, and a great deal of sass.  The Band features Rick Danko (guitars, bass, vocals), Levon Helm (drums, bass, vocals, and mandolins), Garth Hudson (keyboards, accordions, saxophones, even vocals), Richard Manuel (piano on one track), Jim Weider (guitars/vocals), Rick Bell (keyboards/accordions/vocals), Randy Ciarlante (vocals/drums/percussion), along with guest spots by loads of other talented and well-known musicians, at least 15-20 of them.  While it’s challenging not to have major songwriter and guitarist Robbie Robertson in the fold, it is what it is.  We hope you will seek this album out as it is the first of a trio of new works to come.  We think you will enjoy it as much as we do.

[i] We hope to promote the music of the Bee Gees within the next 3-4 years.

[ii] We promoted the music of Spooky Tooth, Mott the Hoople, and Widowmaker- among other interconnected bands beginning on Friday, 25-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We hope you will check out this collection of great rock music.  Even the worst albums among them beats the crap out of any bull crap music one hears today.

[iii] We began presenting the music of the Animals, of Eric Burdon and the Animals, of Eric Burdon, Eric Burdon and War, and War beginning on Monday, 08-June-2015 and the presentation ran through Sunday, 02-August-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider making them a part of your listening pleasure

[iv] We look forward to doing the Clash but expect to do Supertramp first, then Pink Floyd, then Electric Light Orchestra/the Move, then Yes, and then perhaps the Clash.  They are among the amazing British rock bands of the 1970s and deserve to be acknowledged as such.

[v]When the time will be right for the presentation of Elvis Presley is unknown but if we are still going strong in the 2030s, we expect to do so.  Please, stay tuned.

[vi] We shared the music of the Rolling Stones (and the group’s individual members) beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members solo projects.

[vii] Feeble Old Joe said that he would take the news media with him when he went to do a tour of the southern border.  Now that he has appointed “Kooky Kamala” Harris to do ‘something’ about the border, there no longer is a need to take the media there to see what the hell is occurring down there.

[viii] Speaking of this piece of desert dirt, amazing how all the left-wing news agencies and pundits stopped with the shooter being a WHITE man and then NOT reporting his name so they can suck up to their beloved Muslims.  We have heard unverified reports of the scumbag yelling “Allah Akbar” while he walked up to and then shot his victims at close range.  What if one of the victims had a gun and put a round into the shooter’s face?  That would be awesome.  He had rants all over Facebook blasting those whom he believed were ‘racist against Islam’ and even worse, the vaunted FBI had Mr. Alissa on a ‘watch list.’  Lot of good FBI watchlists are, huh?  Still, losers such as Ilhan Omar, DS-MN 5th congressional district, Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, DS-MI 13th congressional district, and ‘Baldy,’ Ayanna Pressley, DS-MA 7th congressional district all zipped their generally flapping lips so as not to have to admit the scumbag Alissa was one of theirs.

[ix] “Prune Face” would be a good alternative name for Cryin’ Chuck seeing as how we have labeled House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi as such.  Dick Tracy had some cool villains.

[x] If you want to see ‘chicks with dicks,’ come to Los Angeles, California, and take a trip down the Sunset Strip.

[xi] “Kooky Kamala” slept her way to the top beginning with powerful Golden State Democrat Willie Brown and Bill, well, everyone knows about Bill.  We don’t have to list all the transgressions against women this guy committed and who can forget that he flew on Jeffrey Epstein’s private plane, what was it- 19 times?  Yikes.

  63. 2017 Sunday: In Orlando, Florida, a city hoping for an NFL team of its own, the lowest scoring Pro Bowl since 1998 occurs what with the AFC beating the NFC by a score of 20-13.  The NFC was driving in the final possession of regulation when Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins throws an interception.  Meanwhile, in Canada, a gunman enters a mosque in Quebec during evening prayers and lights up the people gathered there, killing at least five people and wounding others.  Police immediately go out looking for the shooter, eventually arrest two people, and let one go.  The other one is in custody.  Normally, things such as this don’t happen in ‘gun free Canada.’
  64. 2018 Monday:  The Deputy Director of the FBI- the corrupt and anti-Trumper Andrew McCabe resigns his post when in fact the 45th president fired his crooked ass.  Like his former boss, James Comey, he was in neck deep in the coup against President Trump and had to go.
  65. 2019 Tuesday: As things continue going south in Venezuela (no pun intended), the government of that authoritarian country seizes the bank accounts and properties of Juan Guaidó and prohibit him from leaving the country.  It’s tit for tat. Meanwhile, the U.S. hands over frozen Venezuelan assets to the true winner of election, Guaidó.  Meanwhile, in yet another dagger driven into President Trump by members of his administration, DNI Dan Coats contradicts his boss on North Korea, Iran, and ISIS.  ‘North Korea will never denuclearize,’ Iran is a fine country and ‘not working towards the bomb,’ and ISIS is ‘not on the run but still strong as ever.’  Wow.
  66. 2020 Wednesday: The first day of questions posed by Senate ‘jurors’ in the impeachment trial of President Donald J. Trump occurs.  The questions go to the chief justice of the United States Supreme Court- the Honorable John Roberts- who then directs counsels on either side to answer them.  This is a horribly boring period of this sham trial.  Meanwhile, the deadly coronavirus emanating out of communist China continues infecting and killing people throughout Asia and spreads to the United States.  Thank you, China, is this YOUR way of getting back at the Trump trade deal you had to sign?
  67. 2021 Friday: DAY TEN OF THE BIDEN REGIME- stick around to find out what’s going on today.  First of all, the Biden regime is deriding the 45th president’s COVID-19 relief plan while cannibalizing as much of it as it possibly can.  Good old ‘Plagiarist Joe.’  Next, Congressman Steve Scalise, R-LA, slams House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s constant demonization of the Republican Party.  He warns her it must stop.  Good luck with that.  Senile old Nancy is not always cognizant of what she is doing.  Moving on, Representative Matt Gaetz urges House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA, to hold a hearing on Congresswoman Liz Cheney, R-WY, as a leader in the House.  The woman has plummeted like a turd to the bottom of the pond once she voted to impeach former President Donald Trump.  For some inexplicable reason, Newsmax reports that Congress’ approval rating has jumped 10 percent but from what?  Bottom-of-the-barrel numbers.
  68. 2021 Friday A: The United Kingdom causes rancor with the Chi-Coms when the Brits offer the citizens of Hong Kong a pathway to British citizenship.  Wah, wah, wah, Chi-Coms.  STFU.  Meanwhile, the FBI says the pipe bombs ‘discovered’ at the RNC and DNC on January 6, 2021, the day the Antifa-led mob stormed Capitol Hill and overran it and its law enforcement like pot heads rampaging through a Krispy-Kreme donut shop, were planted the previous night.  The timeline also shows that the Capitol Hill Riots with the Antifa and BLM False Flag operation was planned long in advance, so President Trump bears NO responsibility for any of it.  Senator Dick Durbin- censure not looking so bad now, is it?  POS.  Speaking of drugs, Joe Biden is ending the Trump era program to combat the opioid epidemic.  Guess old Joe wants the Chi-Coms to make money off their illicit drug trade once again.  Thanks, Joe.  And people wonder why we say, “HE’S NOT OUR PRESIDENT.”  Speaking of Joe, he’s now staffing a commission to review the U.S. Supreme Court which means he is looking into PACKING IT. 
  69. 2021 Friday B: Here are the numbers for the COVID-19 global pandemic, the planet first: 101,981,446 confirmed cases, +610,190, 2,203,696, confirmed deaths, +16,037, and 56,302,010 confirmed recoveries (lower than reported last week), +377,525.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 26,156,392 confirmed cases, up 177,254 from yesterday’s reporting, 440,880 confirmed deaths, UP 4,271, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries same as the past five days or so.
  70. 2021 Friday C: 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: 3,272,349 confirmed cases, 39,578 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,070 confirmed cases, 407 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 312,042 confirmed cases, 4,328 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the United States: Puerto Rico- currently, they have 126,156 confirmed cases, 1,801 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 633,991 confirmed cases, 4,700 confirmed deaths, and 558,249 confirmed recoveries.   Speaking of the China Virus, the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine is 66-percent effective.  They are seeking FDA approval for emergency use of their product.
  71. 2021 Friday D: For a laugh, let’s look at the Chi-Coms’ numbers- they say they have 89,378 cases, +52, 4,636 confirmed deaths, and 82,940 confirmed recoveries, +70.  This, of course, is ALL BULLS**T.  When we had contacts in Hong Kong, they said times the numbers by 100, 150, or 200 times and you would get a somewhat closer picture.  Insect-eating scum. 
  72. 2021 Friday E:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 29,982.62, DOWN 620.74 points (-2.03%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,070.69, DOWN 266.46 points (-2.00%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,417.24, DOWN 73.14 points (-1.93%). We are beginning to think Joe Biden is the Antichrist.  The price of GOLD is $1,845.90 per troy oz., -1.40 (-0.08%) while the price of SILVER is $27.06 per troy ounce, +0.146 (+0.54%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,079.80 per troy oz, +0.60 (+0.06%) while the price of COPPER is $3.54 per pound, -0.0155 (-0.44%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,208.40 per troy oz, -113.90 (-4.90%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.14 per barrel, -0.06 (-0.11%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros while one-dollar U.S. = 6.42 Chi-Com yuan.  One-dollar U.S. = 0.000029 Bitcoin.  Next, one U.S. greenback = 75.75 Russian rubles.   
  73. 2021 Friday F: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1629: 04, 44, 58, 59, 70, and Mega 03.  With a pot of $25 million, out of 64,781 winning tickets, the highest winner 37 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $500 apiece.   Meanwhile, Hilton Valentine- original guitarist of the British invasion band the Animals[v] died at his home in Wallingford, Connecticut, on this date from unspecified causes at age 77.  See you on the other side, Hilton!  
  74. 2022 Saturday: Everyone knows the drill…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next release from guitar legend Richard Thompson was a four-CD box set: “Walking on a Wire” (August 26, 2009).  This colossal collection is a glorious collection of the guitar-slinger’s repertoire from the years.  One finds a nearly 60-page booklet that goes into great detail about the life and times of this phenomenal artist and priced at less than seventy-five bucks, what the heck can you lose?  If you have yet to introduce the music of this lesser-known guitar virtuosos, well this is a glorious (and economical) way in which one can do it.  We hope you rush out to your nearest seller of classic rock music and add it to your collection.  You will be extremely glad you did, that we guarantee.

  61. 2016 Monday: In Berlin, Germany, a Muslim jihadist drives a truck through a Christmas market killing at least 12 and injuring another 48 people enjoying the holiday season.  Police apprehended the assailant, a Pakistani ‘refugee’ named Naved Baluch who denies all involvement in the heinous crime.  Shoot the POS.  Meanwhile, at an art exhibit in Ankara, Turkey, a jihadist assassinates the Russian ambassador, Andrey Karlov.  Police caught the gunman and took him into custody.
  62. 2017 Tuesday: The U.S. Senate approves a $1.5 trillion tax bill the Democrats screech, and wail is going to the wealthiest Americans.  Look, the wealthiest Americans are the job creators, so STFU liberal, left-wing losers!   Meanwhile, in communist China, Beijing condemns and executes 10 accused drug smugglers and dealers yet the amount of fentanyl flowing into the U.S. from the Chi-Coms won’t end.  What is up with that?
  63. 2018 Wednesday: Outgoing House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-WI, bids Congress a tearful farewell, lamenting the ‘broken politics’ afflicting the country.   Meanwhile, we learn in Illinois, the Catholic Church would not release the names of more than 500 pedophile priests.  Ye, gods!  Elsewhere, President Trump declares victory over ISIS and announces the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Syria.
  64. 2019 Thursday: Senile House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi overplays her hand yet again by making it official- she won’t walk the two articles of impeachment against President Donald J. Trump to the U.S. Senate until the GOP-controlled upper house promises a ‘fair and just proceeding,’ meaning a guarantee to do whatever the Democrats demand of them.  Not going to happen.  This battle will carry over to the New Year as House lawmakers are already heading home for a two-week Christmas break.  Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, California, at Loyola Marymount College, seven Democrat hopefuls are going to debate tonight.
  65. 2020 Saturday: We have two NFL games this Saturday afternoon but first, a recap on Thursday Night Football’s matchup: (1) Los Angeles Chargers, 30 (5-9) @ Las Vegas Raiders, 27 (8-6) Thursday Night 5:30 P.M. Here are today’s matchups: (2) Buffalo Bills, 48 (11-3) @ Denver Broncos, 19 (5-9) Saturday 1:30 P.M.  Next: (3) Carolina Panthers, 16 (4-10) @ Green Bay Packers, 24 (11-3) Saturday 5:15 P.M.
  66. 2020 Saturday A: The Michigan House of Representatives votes to repeal the Emergency Powers Act they mistakenly bestowed on fascist Governor Gretchen Whitmer, Democrat, an act she used to punish individuals and businesses across the state.  Recall this horrible woman.  Meanwhile, Minnesota prepares to call out the National Guard when the trial of the four police officers charged with the death of George Floyd begins. 
  67. 2020 Saturday B: We now learn that the suspected Russian hack of the U.S. began as far back as March before anyone noticed anything or reported it.  Here are the government departments or entities affected by the Russian FSB thugs: (1) U.S. Treasury Dept. (2) U.S. Commerce Dept. (3) National Institute of Health (4) CISA (5) Dept. of Homeland Security (6) U.S. State Dept. (7) Pentagon- the (8) Office of POTUS (9) NASA (10) Natl. Nuclear Security Administration (11) U.S. Energy Dept. and (12) three U.S. states.  Members of government are calling this an ‘act of war.’  We tend to agree; however, we believe the Russians, the Chi-Coms, the Iranians, and other human garbage around the world are acting in concert and they also hacked the U.S. Presidential Election to sow as much discord and confusion as possible.  Because of this, the U.S. Dept. of State announces that it is going to close the last two U.S. consulates in Russia as U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says, ‘it’s pretty clear that Russia was behind the massive hack.’
  68. 2020 Saturday C: The U.S. Congress is holding a Saturday session on government funding. President Donald J. Trump signs a stopgap spending bill to keep government up and running.  Next, the U.S. Army rejects former national security adviser Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, U.S. Army Retired call for martial law to figure out what the hell happened in the presidential election.   Regarding the election, Franklin Graham says, ‘I tend to believe the election was rigged or stolen.’  Elsewhere, apelike thug and former director of the CIA (and former communist) John Brennan says the Durham report is ‘trolling’ and mocks outgoing Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr.  Have YOU looked in the mirror lately, Mr. Brennan?  You are a thug.   Speaking of Mr. Barr, he says ‘there was NO CIA misconduct in the Trump-Russian collusion probe.’
  69. 2020 Saturday D: In a humorous note, the Fake News Media is blubbering tears, criticizing the so-called ‘president-elect,’ “Pro-Chi-Com China Joe” Biden for closing access to them.  What the hell did you think you dumbasses?   Elsewhere, housing ‘experts’ want the eviction ban extended.  Good for them.  Regarding Chinese Virus-related problems, the GOP wants to bind Chi-Vi aid to limits on federal spending (there’s no money) which throws the outcome of the COVID-19 relief bill into doubt.  Allies of Chi-Com Joe Biden cry, “Foul!”  Speaking of the Wuhan Virus Crisis, the good old ‘Kung Flu,’ the Moderna vaccine has been cleared for emergency use in the United States which will spread the vaccine to greater numbers of people.   
  70. 2020 Saturday E: Questions continue to arise over WHY California Democratic Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell is still in the House of Representatives much less on the House Intelligence Committee when more evidence of him a five-year-plus sexual relationship with a Chi-Com honeypot having continues coming to light.  He must go.  NOW!  We also learn the Chi-Com ‘100-Year Plan’ is for them to bribe, buy, or blackmail everyone around the world who is in their way.  Time to start dropping some nukes, people!   U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says, “The Democrats are too cozy with the Chi-Coms.”  She’s right.
  71. 2020 Saturday F: Stick around for tonight’s Super Lotto Draw and the Powerball drawings.  First, here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3518 with a jackpot of $16 million at stake- 10, 15, 25, 31, 33, and Mega 21.  Out of 92.010 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $17,020 apiece.  One of the two winning tickets was sold at an ARCO AM/PM station in Newbury Park, CA, 91320 while the other was sold at a Mega Liquor in San Gabriel, CA, 91776.   Next, here are the numbers for tonight’s Powerball Draw #804 with a jackpot of $377 million at stake: 27, 32, 34, 43, 52, and Powerball 13.  Out of 101,071 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $52,972.
  72. 2020 Saturday G: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox, communist China’s gift to the world and a boon for Democrats who want to exercise their fascist skills in locking down people’s lives like California’s duplicitous closet pansy Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 76,126,125 confirmed cases, +1,617,691, 1,602,500, confirmed deaths, +11,762, and 42,963,631 confirmed recoveries (again, this number is less than reported a week ago), +361,393.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 17,629,293 confirmed cases, UP 177,126 from yesterday’s reporting, 317,534 confirmed deaths, UP 1,765, and 7,857,661 confirmed recoveries, UP 38,121.
  73. 2020 Saturday H: 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: 1,827,535 confirmed cases, 22,509 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 20,257 confirmed cases, 281 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 224,594 confirmed cases, 3,168 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state- Ohio. Currently, they have 614,429 confirmed cases, 8,031 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor DeWine.  Let’s look at Israel’s stats now that Mo is living there: 372,886 confirmed cases, 3,074 confirmed deaths, and 345,589 confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of the Mao Zedong fever, Maryland and Virginia donate doses of the vaccine to Washington, D.C.
  74. 2020 Saturday: Folks, even though it’s Saturday, everyone knows EVIL never sleeps so stay tuned for whatever shenanigans the Chi-Coms, their allies in Canada, Iran, Russia, Cuba, Venezuela, North Korea, and in the Democratic Party in the U.S. are up to today.  Everyone knows whatever it is, it’s going be GOOD!
  75. 2021 Sunday: Stick around for today’s NFL scores…

Saturday, December 19, 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…


Sunday, December 19, 2021:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We began promoting the music of this legendary British blues-rock band, Ten Years After, beginning on Tuesday, 01-March-2011 through Thursday, 24-March-2011.  We hope you will check them out because their music is as important today as it was 50 years ago.  Their performance at Woodstock in 1969 made them megastars.

[ii] We shared the music of the Lovin’ Spoonful with the readership beginning on Saturday, 14-September-2013 through Tuesday, 24-September-2013.  At the time, we made the oversight of not sharing the music of John B. Sebastian with the readership, so we do hope we come back around to promoting him sometime in the next 15 years or so.

[iii] Not sure when we present this Canadian rock band, Loverboy, but we sure as heck hope we do sometime within the next decade because- say what you will about them- they are as exciting today as they were back in the 1980s.  Please remain vigilant for the day that we do.

[iv] We began promoting the music of both Procol Harum and Robin Trower along with Gary Brooker beginning on Monday, 16-March-2015 through Sunday, 31-May-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your growing music collection.

[v] We promoted the music of the Small Faces, Faces, and a bunch more interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We encourage everyone to search out the music of the various bands in this collection so you can add them to your growing music collection.

[vi] We shared the music of the Stones beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members’ solo projects.  We sure as heck hope you check out the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Keith Richard, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, and Mick Taylor. 

[vii] See previous footnote.  

[viii] In 2019, enfeebled House Speaker Nancy Pelosi continues misleading the public that what President Bill Clinton was in trouble for was his ‘affair’ with White House intern, Monica Lewinsky.  Although that was questionable, he was in trouble for lying in the Paula Jones case as well as for suborning lying under oath in same which inevitable cost him big bucks as well as the right to practice law in his home state of Arkansas for a year.  Speaker Pelosi, STOP LYING to the American people, tell the truth or step down from office and go back home to crime-ridden San Francisco.

[ix] This guy is more of a murderous thug than even his father was.  Still President Donald J. Trump has attempted to bring him and his rat-shit country into modern times.  We shall see.

[x] In 2019 at this point, we are not sure as to whether she will give it, yet another goes or will remain along the sidelines talking shit.

  17. 1917 Wednesday: Members of various political groups within Canada form a coalition with which to govern the country throughout the remainder of World War I and to enact harsh conscription laws.  Ottawa wants to draft as many men as it can to hurry them to France along with their American counterparts to help crush the evil Huns.  Elsewhere, famed author Edgar Rice Burroughs releases the first novel in his Mars series, “A Princess of Mars.”  The story would revolve around John Carter who magically found himself transported from the Earth to Mars where he would become a great warrior and marry into Martian royalty.
  18. 1918 Thursday: As World War I approaches its final month, French Army units ‘liberate’ parts of the Balkans from the Austro-Hungarian Empire on this date: Montenegro, Albania, and Serbia, the final country of which the Austro-Hungarians had overrun and subjugated following a Serb assassinating the Archduke Ferdinand and his wife, Sophie, in Belgrade in the summer of 1914.

  31. 1942 Saturday: The Germans continue pressing their attacks on the Soviet defenders in the smoldering city of Stalingrad.  They have cut the city into pockets full of defenders, but the Red Army and militia units continue clinging to the crossings on the Volga River.  The Luftwaffe continues its attacks across the city continuing to reduce it to rubble, which means the underground is contested as much as what’s left above ground.  German artillery continues hammering Russian supply boats crisscrossing the Volga River.  Meanwhile, Lt. Gen. Friedrich Paulus continues preparing the decisive hammer blow he plans to drop on the 14th.
  32. 1943 Sunday: Chiang Ka-shek took the oath of office as president of the Republic of (Free)  China.  Meanwhile, the German city of Münster becomes the target of the first daylight raid carried out by 236 B-17 Flying Fortresses of the U.S. Eighth Air Force.  German opposition was fierce and at least 30 bombers were lost with another 100-plus severely damaged and which struggled to limp home.  Still, the raid was a success and proved that daylight bombing could be effective.

  52. 1985 Thursday: U.S. fighter jets forced an Egyptian plane carrying the Muslim hijackers of the Italian cruise liner the Achille Lauro to land in Italy, where law enforcement then took the worthless scumbag murderers into custody.  Elsewhere, actor-director Orson Welles died in Los Angeles at age 70 while actor Yul Brynner died in New York at age 65.

  58. 2002 Thursday: The Palestinian terrorists are at it again: a bomber conducts a suicide bombing at a bus stop in Tel Aviv killing a 71-year-old woman and injures several others.  What is wrong with these horrible scumbags?  Stop with the violence already.
  59. 2003 Friday: The Red Cross is accusing the George W. Bush administration of all kinds of evil doing what with the detention of more than 600 jihadist thugs scooped up in Afghanistan, Iraq, and wherever else the U.S. military conducts operations at Camp X-Ray at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.  No one knows what is going on down there and the Bush administration remains mum.
  60. 2004 Sunday: Christopher Reeve, the “Superman” of celluloid who became a quadriplegic after a May 1995 horse riding accident, mercifully died in Mount Kisco, N.Y., at age 52.
  61. 2005 Monday: In President George W. Bush’s never-ending Iraqi disaster, the country is on fire as jihadists, thugs, and Saddam Hussein dead-enders carry out bombings, shootings, and other violence.  The BBC reports the death toll of at least seven Iraqis, one American soldier, and two Arab League officials.  Will it never end?
  62. 2006 Tuesday: Google buys YouTube.com for $1.6 billion.   Meanwhile, according to a Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, since the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003, at least 655,000 Iraqis have died or been killed who might otherwise still be alive if the U.S. hadn’t tried to depose Saddam Hussein.

  64. 2008 Friday: The New York Post reports that with two presidential debates and one vice presidential debate under our belts, there has been nary a word on ‘ISLAMIC TERRORISM’  Could be the Obama-Biden campaign don’t want to go there but we also know that John McCain won’t go there either which means they have taped Alaska Governor Sarah Palin’s mouth shut so she won’t bring it up either.  Yet, Islamism remains the issue of the day followed by the illegal alien invasion.  Someone somewhere talk about it please!
  65. 2009 Saturday: Meeting in Zurich, Switzerland, leaders from Turkey and Armenia agree to open borders to one another following 200 years of closure.  They sign protocols expected to return normalcy to a region where animosity exists- especially after the Turks carried out the Armenian Genocide during World War I.
  66. 2010 Sunday: Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, celebrates its 1,000th anniversary as a city.  Meanwhile, the people of Belgrade were not prepared for this: the first gay pride parade and festival.  People flood the streets and in the ensuing melee, at least 110 people suffer injuries of one sort or another while the cops scoop another 200 or so and charge them with being anti-homo.  What the hell is going on in this extremely religious country?  
  67. 2011 Monday: For the crime of having appeared in a film entitled, “Tehran for Sale,” a movie critical of the despotic regime running Iran, Iranian actress Marzieh Vafamehr receives her court-appointed public punishment: first, 90 lashes with a wooden cane and then a year in a hardcore Iranian slammer.  However, public outrage around the world caused an appellate court in that horrible country to remove the caning and to reduce the time in the slammer from 12 months to 3 months.  Still, that is three months too long to undergo rapes, beatings, and other mistreatment at the hands of barbaric jailers.
  68. 2012 Wednesday: In the U.S. President Obama nominates John R. Allen as Supreme Allied Commander Europe (SACEUR), with General Joseph Dunford positioned to succeed Allen in his previous post of commander of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Afghanistan.

  70. 2014 Friday: North Korean observers puzzle about the whereabouts of ‘Great Leader’ Kim Jong-Un or what might have happened to him as he fails to show up at festivities of the North Korean Workers Party.  No one has seen the fat little thug since early September leading to the questions about his ‘condition.’  (We know he fears assassination).   Elsewhere, Malala Yousafzai wins the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize for her work to bring education to all women and girls in Pakistan and elsewhere in the world.
  71. 2015 Saturday: In Ankara, Turkey, some Islamist scumbags bomb a peace rally, killing at 95 and injuring another 200 or more attendees.  Meanwhile, two outside reports clear Cleveland Police officers for having shot 12-year-old black boy Tamir Rice.  The poor kid was playing with a toy gun in a city park and the cops believed it to be real, told him to drop it, and then shot him.  Not good.  Elsewhere, a U.S. Army officer urges NO JAIL TIME for deserter and then Taliban-held POW Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.  Finally, more than 120 anti-Islam protesters gathered outside a Phoenix, Arizona, mosque.  Allah akbar!
  72. 2016 Monday: U.S. House Speaker Paul “The Putz” Ryan, R-Wisconsin, delivers what he believes to be a death blow to the Trump campaign by informing the world he ‘will no longer defend it.’  This comes after the Friday disclosure of an Access Hollywood tape in which, candidate Donald Trump is heard telling Billy Bush about how being ‘rich and powerful allows him to get away with kissing and groping women.’  We also learn today that Hillary Clinton’s lead over the struggling Trump has risen to double digits.  Wow.  It looks like Mrs. Clinton is going to win BIG on Election Day!  Finally, U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg calls the U.S. National Anthem protests “dumb and disrespectful” for San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and other NFL players to protest racial inequality by refusing to stand for the flag and the anthem.  Listen, dummies, put your money where your mouths are; otherwise, shut up, and Love It or Leave It!  It’s time for that motto to return…
  73. 2017 Tuesday: In California, as out-of-control wildfires rage, the death toll hits at least 17 across Napa and Sonoma Counties.  Due to forest mismanagement and long-term neglect by Democrats and their environmentalist backers, the state is burning up.  It is horrifying as people, plants, and animals continue dying.  Meanwhile, EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt signs the proposal that will withdraw the United States from Barack Hussein Obama’s Clean Power Act.  Good.  Slash those regulations.  Finally, NFL owners discuss making their players stand for the National Anthem seeing that viewership, both on TV and in the stadiums, is at record lows.
  74. 2018 Wednesday:  Cat 4 Hurricane Matthew slams into the Florida and Georgia coastlines as it heads for the Carolinas.  With winds topping 155 MPH, people have evacuated but still, at least have died in mishaps related to the raging tempest.  Speaking of crappy weather, the United Nations issues a report that says ‘Extreme Weather’ has cost more than $2.9 trillion over the past 20 years.  Environmentalists around the planet are doing the jig in the streets, hoping they can force a world socialist government down the throats of all people.   Elsewhere, the DOW Jones Industrial Average drops more than 800 points as tech stocks crash.
  75. 2019 Thursday: As the Turkish army’s offensive into northern Syria gets underway, civilians find themselves under withering fire and forced to flee, many of them being killed by the angry Turks.   The former Ottoman Empire announces it wants to ‘establish a safe zone’ along its border and that means more than half-a-million Syrian Kurds must vacate or face punitive measures.   Elsewhere, to the delight of anti-Trumpists everywhere, two of Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani’s associates, Lev Parmas and Igor Fruman are taken into custody at Dulles International Airport for doing ‘dreadful things on behalf of the Ukraine and President Donald J. Trump.’  Fake news folks, fake news.  Finally, the estate of Prince slams the Trump campaign for using “Purple Rain” at a rally in Minnesota.  Wah, wah, and wah!
  76. 2020 Saturday: In Pennsylvania, a state where voter fraud appears is going to be rampant, a judge tosses a case launched by the Trump administration to halt the crooked mailing of mail-in ballots to every ‘registered citizen.’  Meanwhile, former Kansas senator and GOP presidential nominee Bob Dole says the ‘Presidential Debate Commission is stacked against Donald Trump and is very unfair.’  Speaking of Trump, he held a peaceful protest at the White House today while ever-senile “Pro-China Joe” Biden is working at recapturing Michigan from the GOP.   Elsewhere, the North Koreans roll out what has been called a ‘monster ICBM’ during their latest military parade but most believe it is little more than trickery.  If it is real, it will go farther and carry a far larger warhead or series of warheads than heretofore the North Koreans could.  Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi refuses the latest Trump administration Chi-Vi relief bill, demanding the one she wants that will cost American taxpayers more than a trillion dollars.  WTF is wrong with this babbling lunatic, they must add House speakers to the 25th Amendment so they can send her into much-needed retirement in North Korea.
  77. 2020 Saturday A: In New York City, anti-Semitic Mayor Bill Di Blasio continues his ‘war on Jews’ by threatening to arrest them if they break his draconian COVID-19 restrictions.  What’s next, ‘Mr. Worst Mayor in the Country?’  Are you going to require ALL Jews within the city sew yellow stars of David on their clothes so that your secret police can identify them easier? 
  78. 2020 Saturday B: The Chi-Coms are angry today, threatening WAR if the U.S. continues sailing through the South China Sea where they have built islands atop atolls and rock outcroppings and then militarized them to threaten fellow Southeast Asian nations.  The U.S. guided missile destroyer USS John McCain traversed the area which set the Chi-Coms to threatening all manner of retaliation.  Folks, the Chi-Coms are WHY God gave us the neutron bomb.  Let’s use it and show them who’s boss.  It’s bad enough they infected the world with a pandemic but to talk crap to the U.S. over the United States Navy sailing through international waters is BS.
  79. 2020 Saturday  C: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 37,019,381 confirmed cases, +313,168, 1,069,953, confirmed deaths, +5,533, and 25,711,805 confirmed recoveries, 241,208.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 7,786,164 confirmed cases, UP 28,255 from yesterday’s reporting, 217,319 confirmed deaths, UP 329, and 5,010,292 confirmed recoveries, UP 23,136.  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: 851,399 confirmed cases, 16,506 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 13,461 confirmed cases, 168 confirmed deaths, and 10,713 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 96,839 confirmed cases, 2,288 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Delaware- currently, they have 21,998 confirmed cases, 653 confirmed deaths, and 11,338 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor John Carney for being an honest Democratic politician- thank you.  Let’s look at Israel’s stats now that Mo is living there: 289,875 confirmed cases, 1,941 confirmed deaths, and 225,718 confirmed recoveries.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next Fairport Convention album, “Angel Delight,” came out on June 15, 1971, and featured a stripped down, rough-and-tumble group of musicians now that Richard Thompson bolted the barn.  The band features Simon Nichol (guitars, vocals), Dave Pegg (basses, mandolins, vocals), Dave Swarbrick (fiddle, mandolins, vocals, and viola), and Dave Mattacks (drums and percussion).  This eclectic British band would undergo many changes over the years which is why it has remained so vibrant and so alive (other than for brief periods of inactivity) which is why we contend you check this album out, give it a good listen, and add it to your growing collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-approved music, videos/DVDs, and even books.  Enjoy.

  51. 2008 Tuesday: Congressional leaders and President George W. Bush rummaged through ideas new and old, desperately seeking to change a dozen House members’ votes and pass a multibillion-dollar economic rescue plan.  Wall Street regained hope as the Dow industrials rose 485 points.
  52. 2009 Wednesday: The Obama regime announces it is going to withdraw 4,000 soldiers out of Iraq by the end of next month.  This will allow terrorist supergroup ISIS to begin growing like a virulent cancer.  Should keep them there, Mr. President.
  53. 2010 Thursday: Somali pirates seize a Panamanian -flagged freighter off the coast of Africa and capture the Indian crewmembers aboard it.  Elsewhere, jihadists in southern Baghdad attempt to rob a bank.  The crime results in at least two Iraqi police officers and a civilian killed, another four wounded, and the perps in the wind.  We will stay tuned.
  54. 2011 Friday: Vocalist with Smokey Robinson and the Miracles- Marvin Tarplin- died in Las Vegas, Nevada, at age 70.  Elsewhere, the Obama administration carries out a major strike in the global war on terror, this time in Yemen when a drone strike blows to bits radical jihadist cleric- and American citizen- Anwar al-Awlaki.  Good.  Send this POS howling to meet with Allah, it’s been long overdue.
  55. 2012 Sunday: Spain announces it expects its debt levels to increase in 2013.  Elsewhere, the ‘religion of peace’ strikes again- this time in Bangladesh.  After a RUMOR hits social media in which, a BUDDHIST man posted a photo supposedly critical of the ‘religion of peace,’ Muslims rush out, burn down four Buddhist temples and at least 15 homes owned by Buddhists.  Folks, when is the ‘religion of peace’ going to undergo a reformation and enter the 21st century?

  59. 2016 Friday:  The United Nations says that the Syrian city of Aleppo is a “Humanitarian Crisis” as peace talks between the Syrian government, its allies, and the ISIS criminals, falters.  People are being bombed, they’re being strafed, they are starving to death, and disease stalks the weakened among them.  And the U.S. military-industrial complex wants the United States to involve itself even deeper in this quagmire.
  60. 2017 Saturday: The Trump administration’s Health and Human Services Director Tom Price resigns his position today after being blasted and criticized for misusing funds.  No proof is ever offered but you know the libs- they never stop.  Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is in Beijing ahead of President Trump’s visit to the communist nation.  Elsewhere, Canadian American game show host, Monty Hall of “Let’s Make a Deal” fame dies at age 96.
  61. 2018 Sunday:  The Federal Bureau of Investigation- after being bullied by Democrats- announces that it is expanding its probe into the supposed wrongdoings of U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.  The Dems are trying to smear the stellar judge in their attempt to deny him a seat on the high court and to repel President Donald J. Trump’s second SCOTUS nominee.
  62. 2019 Monday:  As testimony in the growing impeachment inquiry by the Democrats to take out the 45th president, Donald J. Trump tweets that he should be able to ‘meet the so-called whistleblower’ whom most believe is a lying POS.  The Dems will do everything possible to protect his identity, but we know who he is.   Meanwhile, the “Pro-China Joe” Biden 2020 campaign asks the TV networks to stop booking Rudy Giuliani.   They accuse the president’s lawyer of ‘spreading lies about the candidate and his son, Hunter.’  Funny thing is, on Wednesday, September 23, 2020, the U.S. Senate committee investigating the Bidens and their corruption- especially in the Ukraine and in communist China demonstrate that Hunter’s actions were indeed ‘criminal’ and in need of further investigation.  Not looking good for you, Joe…
  63. 2020 Wednesday: Reviews regarding last night’s first 2020 presidential debate continue coming in with most believing that President Trump was debating not one but two people.  Moderator Chris Wallace- who should be stripped of all future debates- did everything he could to help keep “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s head above the roiling waters.  Today, the former VP is on a ‘train tour,’ running from Cleveland, Ohio, to Johnstown, Pennsylvania.  Crowds are incredibly sparse for the stumbling bumbler.  It would appear that in last night’s debate, President Trump utilized the same strategy he employed in his VP debate with Congressman Paul Ryan, R-WI, Mitt Romney’s vice-presidential pick.  In that ugly 2012 matchup, Biden interrupted, derided, and lampooned Mr. Ryan.  It was ugly, it turned off millions of viewers, but everyone said, “Joe did a hell of a job.”  Whoa.   At least Telemundo, the Spanish language juggernaut in a poll released last night, one we reported, that viewers said Trump won the matchup by an overwhelming 66-percent to 33-percent.  Latinos love their blood sports.  The Atlantic Magazine says the ‘rest of the debates should be canceled.’
  64. 2020 Wednesday A:  In New York City, more than 100,000 mail-in ballots have gone to people with the incorrect information emblazoned on them.  The state says it will make things right; however, what will happen with the messed-up ballots and who will be responsible for their destruction?  Things continue going from bad to worse.   Meanwhile, Glenn Beck reports on his program this morning that in Harris County, Texas, Joe Biden surrogate Dallas Jones was caught red-handed in a scheme to have hirelings fill out more than 700,000 mail-in ballots.  An investigation featuring former federal law enforcement officers busted Jones outright.  We hope this situation can be repaired and that the participants in, yet another fraudulent vote theft shenanigan find themselves busting rocks in Leavenworth, Kansas, for 30 years.
  65. 2020 Wednesday B: Judge Amy Coney Barrett will be meeting with 10 senators on Capitol Hill today even though most Democratic senators are keeping her at arm’s length.   Speaking of Capitol Hill, Lindsey Graham’s Senate committee is grilling fired former FBI Director James “The Saint” Comey virtually today, trying to pull answers from him about the scam of Crossfire Hurricane and the attempt to bring down Donald Trump, both as candidate and as president.  This man must do time in federal prison.  Graham says, ‘what happened at the FBI and the Obama Justice Department is a system failure.’  Elsewhere, the ‘Happiest Place on Earth’- Disneyland- says it will begin laying off 30,000 workers due to the harsh shutdown restrictions imposed upon the entertainment destination by Gov. Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom.  Finally, failed Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer- a woman who keeps her stated in the lockbox while permitting her husband to drive around the state and to take his boat out on whatever lake he chooses- announces that she is extending the CHI-VI lockdown that was set to end tomorrow until at least October 31.  What a pity.
  66. 2020 Wednesday C: A judge in Las Vegas, Nevada, rules that Mandalay Bay Hotel and Resort is liable for the $800 million payout to the victims of the October 31, 2017, mass shooting that occurred on its property.  The shooter, Stephen Paddock, carried load upon load of what turned out to be firearms, ammunition, and surveillance equipment and then began shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival from several adjoining windows 32 floors up.  By the time law enforcement and hotel security got around to storming the hotel room, the damage was done, and the shooter lay dead, slain by his own hand.  Meanwhile, the police chief of Los Angeles, California, says that attacks and assaults on police officers have skyrocketed by 156% from this time in 2019.
  67. 2020 Wednesday D: TV ratings for last night’s first presidential debate are 64 million viewers.  It is interesting to note that the Proud Boys, brought up in last night’s debate by moderator Chris Wallace (a failure and a partisan hack) added Trump’s words to both their logo and t-shirts: “Stand by and stand back.”  No one asks “Pro-China Joe” Biden to disavow Blacks Lives Matter, Resist Fascism, or Antifa.  This leads us to speculate that since the Proud Boys jumped in with the t-shirt, that they are receiving funding from the SAME FINANCIAL SOURCES that are also funding the left-wing groups.  Once again, this confirms to us that the Chi-Coms and their Democratic stooges are the ones funneling money to all these violent groups as it serves their overall purposes: the destabilization of the United States and its institutions.
  68. 2020 Wednesday E: On Neil Cavuto’s show, guest Charlie Gasparino tells Neil that many of his Wall Street friends and colleagues fear substantial changes in tax policy as well as regulations should Joe Biden win in November and has a Democrat House and Senate.  A ‘President Joe Biden’ would return the mandate to the Affordable Care Act which would end full-time employment and return the norm of 28 hours or less per week.   No matter what Dems about say about the humongous economy of the Obama-Biden years, it simply did not exist- Obamacare kept every job ‘part-time’ except for union jobs and they were able to avoid Obamacare costs because the administration gave them carve-outs.   Elsewhere, the Sunday afternoon game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Tennessee Titans has been postponed due to a number of Chi-Vi cases among the Titans.  Stay tuned for further developments.   
  69. 2020 Wednesday F: Here are today’s Comrade Xi Jinping’s Chi-Com Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 33,785,178 confirmed cases, UP by 301,058 cases, 1,010,147 confirmed deaths, UP by 6,065 deaths, and 23,448,934 confirmed recoveries, UP by 236,031 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 7,322,022 confirmed cases, UP by 92,463 new cases, 210,123 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,788 new deaths, and 3,920,920 confirmed recoveries, UP by 49,965 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 motherf**kers).  Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 244,494 confirmed cases, 1,569 confirmed deaths, and 174,506 confirmed recoveries.
  70. 2020 Wednesday G: 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: 819,340 confirmed cases, 15,838 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 12,436 confirmed cases, 134 confirmed deaths, and 10,256 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 91,107 confirmed cases, 2,219 confirmed deaths, but like California, the palooka-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, Wyoming: 5,948 confirmed number of cases, 50 confirmed deaths, and 4,791 confirmed number of recoveries- thank you, Governor Mark Gordon for sharing the number of recoveries.
  71. 2020 Wednesday H: Here are today’s BIG Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,781.70, UP a whopping 329.04 points (+1.20%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,167.57, UP 82.26 points (+0.74%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,363.00, UP 27.53 points (+0.83%).  The price of GOLD is $1,893.70 per troy oz., -1.80 (-0.09%) while the price of SILVER is $23.45 per troy ounce, -0.044 (-0.19%).  The price of PLATINUM is $903.70 per troy oz, -5.50 (-0.60%) while the price of COPPER is $3.03 per pound, 0.0045 (-0.15%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,330.50 per troy oz, +1.20 (+0.05%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $40.02 per barrel, -0.20 (-0.50%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.79 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 22.41.
  72. 2021 Thursday: As always, we never know what the heck is going on in the ongoing attempt by the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party patsies in the war to get Trump, force socialism down our throats, and continue claiming senile Joe Biden somehow won the 2020 Presidential Election, but you can bet it’s going to be good so make sure you check back in later for the latest updates!

  51. 2012 Saturday: U.S. Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum wins the caucuses in the state of Louisiana.  Meanwhile, communist China announces its plan to phase-out the practice of taking and selling organs from executed prisoners.  Elsewhere, former Vice President Richard “Dick” Cheney receives a heart transplant on this date.  Get well, Dick!
  52. 2013 Sunday: In Paris, hundreds of thousands of people protest the legalization of same-sex marriage in France, after the protest turns violent, the authorities deny them access to the Champs-Elysees.   Elsewhere, communist President Evo Morales threatens to take an ongoing border dispute with Chile to the International Court of Justice at the Hague.  President Morales is a hardcore leftists.   
  53. 2014 Monday:  A lawsuit against Lance Armstrong undergoes dismissal; after he admitted to doping, the plaintiffs sued, claiming that they bought energy-drink maker FRS Co. believing that the drinks endorsed by Armstrong had been the key reason for his cycling success.

  55. 2016 Thursday: At the Hague, the European Court finds Radovan Karadžić, leader of the Bosnian Serbs during the war in Yugoslavia in the 1990s guilty of war crimes.  His main crime was the 1995 massacre at Srebrenica in which Serb forces murdered loads of Muslims.  He received a sentence of 40 years.  Elsewhere, in the U.S., an appellate court upholds a lower court’s ruling in New York seeking to keep Senator Ted Cruz off the GOP presidential primary ballot because of his Canadian birth.  This is hardball by Congressman Peter King, R-NY 2nd congressional district and a close friend of candidate Donald J. Trump.  
  56. 2017 Friday: Thanks to schmucks such as House Speaker Paul Ryan, the Trump administration and their GOP allies in the House of Representatives are forced to pull their plan to overturn Obamacare and to replace it with a better plan.   Meanwhile, the House Intelligence Committee goes to war with itself over the bogus Trump-Russia Collusion scam, the very same engineered by the Democrats.  Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, and ranking member, the locoweed Adam Schiff, DS-CA 28th congressional district, are butting heads over information coming out that shows that the Obama administration SPIED on the then-Trump campaign.

  58. 2019 Sunday: On this Sunday, Attorney-General Bill Barr put out a brief on the 22-month Robert S. Mueller III investigation into Donald Trump, Trump campaign officials, and Vladimir Putin’s Russia by saying that ‘Mueller’s team had found no evidence of collusion between now-President Trump, members of his campaign, his friends and family and Russia nor was there any sign of obstruction.’  In effect, this clears the president and those around him other than those convicted of process crimes during the investigation.  The Democrats could not handle the outcome and rushed to the microphones braying like dogs for ALL the evidence and promise to continue the witch hunt into Mr. Trump.  The investigation began- many believe- in late 2015 or early 2016 and involved members of the Hillary Clinton team, Barack Obama Justice Department and FBI officials, as well as foreign operatives hired by members of the Obama team to set up candidate- and then- President Trump.  
  59. 2020 Tuesday: Democrats continue stalling in the U.S. Senate by holding up Wuhan Virus relief legislation by trying to stuff in Green New Deal, Pro-Death, union, identity politics, election fraud such as ballot harvesting in ALL 50 states, and more.  Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell continues rebuffing them in the hope that honest and legitimate legislation can occur.  Meanwhile, the world around mid-day acknowledges approximately 414,277 cases of COVID-19, with 38,819 new cases over the past 24 hours.  Global deaths are 18,557 what with 2,146 in the previous 24 hours.  In the United States, there are 51,542 cases of the Kung Flu with 8,328 new cases over the past 24 hours.  There is a total of 674 deaths, up by 95 over the previous 24 hours.  The Dow Jones Industrial Average closes UP by 11.3% or up 2,112.98 points, closing at 20,764.91.  Bravo.

ENDNOTES:

[i] We hope to promote the music of the Bee Gees within the next 3-4 years.

[ii] We promoted the music of Spooky Tooth, Mott the Hoople, and Widowmaker- among other interconnected bands beginning on Friday, 25-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We hope you will check out this collection of great rock music.  Even the worst albums among them beats the crap out of any bull crap music one hears today.

[iii] We began presenting the music of the Animals, of Eric Burdon and the Animals, of Eric Burdon, Eric Burdon and War, and War beginning on Monday, 08-June-2015 and the presentation ran through Sunday, 02-August-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider making them a part of your listening pleasure

[iv] We look forward to doing the Clash but expect to do Supertramp first, then Pink Floyd, then Electric Light Orchestra/the Move, then Yes, and then perhaps the Clash.  They are among the amazing British rock bands of the 1970s and deserve to be acknowledged as such.

[v]When the time will be right for the presentation of Elvis Presley is unknown but if we are still going strong in the 2030s, we expect to do so.  Please, stay tuned.

[vi] We shared the music of the Rolling Stones (and the group’s individual members) beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members solo projects.

V. 1942 Saturday: The Germans continue pressing their attacks on the Soviet defenders in the smoldering city of Stalingrad. They have cut the city into pockets but the Red Army and militia units continue clinging to the crossings on the Volga River. The Luftwaffe continues its attacks across the city continuing to reduce it to rubble, which means the underground is contested as much as what’s left above ground. German artillery continues hammering Russian supply boats crisscrossing the Volga River. Meanwhile, Lt. Gen. Friedrich Paulus continues preparing the decisive hammer blow he plans to drop on the 14th.

  58. 2016 Monday: House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisconsin, delivers what he believes to be a death blow to the Trump campaign by informing the world he ‘will no longer defend it.’  This comes after the Friday disclosure of an Access Hollywood tape in which, candidate Donald Trump is heard telling Billy Bush about how being ‘rich and powerful allows him to get away with kissing and groping women.’  We also learn today that Hillary Clinton’s lead over the struggling Trump has risen to double digits.  Wow.  It looks like Mrs. Clinton is going to win BIG on Election Day!  Finally, U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg calls the U.S. National Anthem protests “dumb and disrespectful” for San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and other NFL players to protest racial inequality by refusing to stand for the flag and the anthem.  Listen, dummies, put your money where your mouths are; otherwise, shut up, and Love It or Leave It!  It’s time for that motto to return…
  59. 2017 Tuesday: In California, as out-of-control wildfires rage, the death toll hits at least 17 across Napa and Sonoma Counties.  Due to forest mismanagement and long-term neglect by Democrats and their environmentalist backers, the state is burning up.  It is horrifying as people, plants, and animals continue dying.  Meanwhile, EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt signs the proposal that will withdraw the United States from Barack Hussein Obama’s Clean Power Act.  Good.  Slash those regulations.  Finally, NFL owners discuss making their players stand for the National Anthem seeing that viewership, both on TV and in the stadiums, is at record lows.
  60. 2018 Wednesday:  Cat 4 Hurricane Matthew slams into the Florida and Georgia coastlines as it heads for the Carolinas.  With winds topping 155 MPH, people have evacuated but still, at least have died in mishaps related to the raging tempest.  Speaking of crappy weather, the United Nations issues a report that says ‘Extreme Weather’ has cost more than $2.9 trillion over the past 20 years.  Environmentalists around the planet are doing the jig in the streets, hoping they can force a world socialist government down the throats of all people.   Elsewhere, the DOW Jones Industrial Average drops more than 800 points as tech stocks crash.
  61. 2019 Thursday: As the Turkish army’s offensive into northern Syria gets underway, civilians find themselves under withering fire and forced to flee, many of them being killed by the angry Turks.   The former Ottoman Empire announces it wants to ‘establish a safe zone’ along its border and that means more than half-a-million Syrian Kurds must vacate or face punitive measures.   Elsewhere, to the delight of anti-Trumpists everywhere, two of Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani’s associates, Lev Parmas and Igor Fruman are taken into custody at Dulles International Airport for doing ‘bad things on behalf of the Ukraine and President Donald J. Trump.’  Fake news folks, fake news.  Finally, the estate of Prince slams the Trump campaign for using “Purple Rain” at a rally in Minnesota.  Wah, wah, and wah!
  62. 2020 Saturday: In Pennsylvania, a state where voter fraud appears is going to be rampant, a judge tosses a case launched by the Trump administration to halt the crooked mailing of mail-in ballots to every ‘registered citizen.’  Meanwhile, former Kansas senator and GOP presidential nominee Bob Dole says the ‘Presidential Debate Commission is stacked against Donald Trump and is very unfair.’  Speaking of Trump, he held a peaceful protest at the White House today while ever-senile “Pro-China Joe” Biden is working at recapturing Michigan from the GOP.   Elsewhere, the North Koreans roll out what has been called a ‘monster ICBM’ during their latest military parade but most believe it is little more than trickery.  If it is real, it will go farther and carry a far larger warhead or series of warheads than heretofore the North Koreans could.  Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi refuses the latest Trump administration Chi-Vi relief bill, demanding the one she wants that will cost American taxpayers more than a trillion dollars.  WTF is wrong with this babbling lunatic, they must add House speakers to the 25th Amendment so they can send her into much-needed retirement in North Korea.
  63. 2020 Saturday A: In New York City, anti-Semitic Mayor Bill Di Blasio continues his ‘war on Jews’ by threatening to arrest them if they break his draconian COVID-19 restrictions.  What’s next, ‘Mr. Worst Mayor in the Country?’  Are you going to require ALL Jews within the city sew yellow stars of David on their clothes so that your secret police can identify them easier?
  64. 2020 B: The Chi-Coms are angry today, threatening WAR if the U.S. continues sailing through the South China Sea where they have built islands atop atolls and rock outcroppings and then militarized them to threaten fellow Southeast Asian nations.  The U.S. guided missile destroyer USS John McCain traversed the area which set the Chi-Coms to threatening all manner of retaliation.  Folks, the Chi-Coms are WHY God gave us the neutron bomb.  Let’s use it and show them who’s boss.  It’s bad enough they infected the world with a pandemic but to talk crap to the U.S. over the United States Navy sailing through international waters is BS.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Roy Wood- ever at work on musical projects- released a collection of the crème de la crème of his solo career on May 10, 2001: “Roy Wood & Wizzard 1972-1976.”  Critics acclaimed it and we enjoy it, too, which is why we encourage everyone to rush out and check it out, giving it a good listen, and then adding it to your ever-expanding collection.  We at the AICPENDBLOG.COM thank you for evaluating our evaluations of nothing but the best in rock music- as far as we know, we are the ONLY blog site on the Internet that combines politics with the best in rock music as well as with presentations of Beverly Carrick original artworks.  You will find no one else engaging in this type of presentation, one built atop a disdain from communism and communist nations- that means, YOU, Chi-Coms.
