The communists have labored to dig approach trenches right up to the wire as well as to pull in heavy weapons for close range support. According to some Legion survivors, the last that was seen of their comrades was that they were fighting back-to-back atop the command bunker, throwing back one human wave assault after another of howling communists until finally, everything fell into silence. Still, the fighting at Dien Bien Phu will continue.

  59. 2014 Monday:  The New York Knicks fire Coach Mike Woodson after a season in which the Knicks began as champions and ended with elimination.  Elsewhere Russian separatists n the eastern Ukraine claim that two of their number have been pulled from a river, covered in stab wounds.  This is a horrendous outrage and of course the Russians are angry.  Like the Nazis in 1939 prior to the invasion of Poland also needed a pretext for invasion and so they engineered one.  Vladimir Putin is a good student.  (Note- the Russians probably killed a couple of Chechens).
  60. 2015 Tuesday: Former Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, a true jihadist if one ever existed, receives a 20-year stint in an Egyptian hoosegow for hundreds of protesters he had killed when he was the nation’s president.   Elsewhere, following the death of Freddie Gray in Baltimore, Maryland, the U.S. Department of Justice announces that it is going to launch a federal investigation into the incident.

  73. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Ongoing Border Catastrophe– Things are going to hell along the southern border that Arizona Governor Doug Ducey, RINO, is calling up the National Guard and deploying them to his state’s border with Mexico.  In fact, Senators Mark Kelly, D-AZ, and Kyrsten Sinema support the governor’s efforts to halt the invasion.   Meanwhile, lawmakers on both sides of the aisle want to know WHEN Joe Biden or “Kooky Kamala” Harris is going to visit the border and behold the BORDER CATASTROPHE that is occurring there 24/7.  This must stop.  NOW.
  74. 2021 Wednesday G: Crime And Punishment News / U.S. Department Of Justice News–  Senile old hag, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, continues blathering on about how ‘great it was for George Floyd to give up his life and to call out for his mama’ as he lay dying beneath the knee of convicted murderer and former Police Officer Derek Chauvin.  The leftists being what they are ALWAYS require martyrs so they can forge ahead with their sick agenda and poor Mr. Floyd was just another brick in the Democratic-Socialists’ wall.  Speaker Pelosi must lose her seat in 2022.  Meanwhile, U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland announced that the feds are launching an investigation into the Minneapolis Police Department in a renewed drive to federalize as many police departments as possible.  This is what socialist-communist societies do, they bump up local law enforcement to federal level so they can then move them around- like the People’s Republic of China- so that law enforcement has NO ties to the communities they serve which leads to greater police brutality and mistreatment of the citizenry.  You can count on it.  This is precisely what the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act (or whatever BS name it goes by) is all about, federalizing ALL local and state law enforcement.  In other crime news, following the police shooting of a young black female attacking another with a butcher knife in Columbus, Ohio, last night, Democrats and their ‘tool’s like LeBron James are screeching for blood.  Someone, please, kick LeBron’s stupid ass.  Finally, a Virginia cop was fired- we repeat, FIRED- for donating $25 to Kyle Rittenhouse’s defense fund.  WTF?  Lt. William Kelly, an internal affairs officer in the Norfolk, Virginia, police department was terminated when his superiors learned of this callous doing in a FREE country.  Wow.
  75. 2021 Wednesday H: Crime And Punishment News Ii– After the Chauvin verdict yesterday, ‘peaceful protesters,’ aka Antifa, in Portland, Oregon, assaulted people on the street, set Starbucks stores ablaze, and attacked cops on the street.  Speaking of Officer Chauvin, he is being held in protective custody, i.e., in solitary confinement, to protect him from his fellow inmates.   Meanwhile, the four detestable skanks of the Squad, Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DS-NY 14th congressional district, Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DS-MN 5th congressional district, Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, DS-MI 13th congressional district, Ayanna “Chrome Dome” Pressley, DS-MA 7th congressional district, and newbie Cori “The B***h” Bush, DS-MO 1st congressional district, are driving up race hatred across the country while having the taxpayers spend tens of thousands of dollars to PROTECT THEM.  
  76. 2021 Wednesday I: Foreign News / Overseas News I– In the case of ‘comfort women’ used by Imperial Japanese forces in the Pacific during World War II, South Korea- a country from which many of the sex slaves were taken- sides with Japan.   Speaking of South Korea, President Moon Jae-in says that ‘President Donald J. Trump failed to solve the North Korean problem.’  Uh, okay, but he gave it a better shot than any president since Ronald Reagan.   Next, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says that the Chi-Coms WON’T reduce carbon emissions, nor will they slow their growth as the United States will willingly do.’  He is 100-percent correct.
  77. 2021 Wednesday J: Joe Biden Administration News I– Joe Biden is sending members of his Cabinet out to the various states to shill for his INFRASTRUCTURE PLAN, the one that costs $3.2 trillion, that very few want.   Speaking of the faux president, the Associate Press reports that Joe Biden plans to halve CO2 emissions by 2030 which means higher energy costs, less energy reliability, and a diminished middle class.   Next, Joe Biden plans to use his upcoming address to a joint session of Congress supposedly sometime in May to push for POLICE REFORM across the country.   Meanwhile, a stuttering and stammering Joe Biden says that he believes the bar to ‘convict cops is too high.’   Maybe you should zip your lips until AFTER justice has occurred there, Mr. Faux President.
  78. 2021 Wednesday K: Political News I– Book publishers, Simon & Schuster announce that they reject a petition demanding they DON’T publish a book by Vice President Mike R. Pence.  They are going to move ahead with publication, damn the torpedoes.  Next, RINO King former Governor Chris “Krispy Kreme” Christie, N.J., says he could run for the White House in 2024.  It will be to YOUR embarrassment there, Big Boy.  Speaking of New Jersey, they are going to permit Gender “X” on the state’s driver’s licenses and identification cards.  Oh, goodie, kowtowing to the freaks yet again.   Meanwhile, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy says that failing to censure Congresswoman Maxine “Prune Face” Waters, DS-CA 43rd congressional district, yesterday has weakened both the U.S. House of Representatives and the Department of Justice.  As you know, she went to Minneapolis, Minnesota, over the weekend to stir up a lynch mob and to intimidate the jury in the trial of now-convicted murderer, Derek Chauvin.
  79. 2021 Wednesday L: Political News II– It appears that Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, RINO, is becoming vulnerable amid ongoing attacks by President Donald J. Trump.  Former Democrat-turned-Republican and former state Representative Vernon Jones, GA 91st district,  is in a powerful position to knock Governor Kemp out in the primary election of next year.  Meanwhile, ever-drooling, nonagenarian House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, is floating the idea of a BIPARTISAN January 06, 2021, Commission to get to the bottom of the False Flag, Antifa-and-Black Lives Matter-infiltrated Trump supporters that then became a mob and stormed Capitol Hill.  (Note- it does not require loads of intelligence to visualize that most of those people storming the Capitol, waving Confederate flags and what not weren’t crazed leftists bent on intimidating true protesters, lawmakers, and the American people into accepting what they know was stolen: the 2020 Presidential Election).  
  80. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News III–  Next, the FBI releases a report on the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise, R-LA 1st congressional district, the one that occurred on June 14, 2007, in Alexandria, Virginia, when a crazed BERNIE SANDERS VOTER attacked a baseball practice for House Republicans.  The FBI decided that the slain shooter, James Hodgkinson wanted to carry out a…wait for it…suicide by cop.  That’s right, that’s what the esteemed Federal Bureau of Investigation- in the hands of ‘highly capable’ Director Chris Wray pulled out of their hat.  What a deduction.  How sad is our world today?  Our government has become fully corrupted and it’s a shocking thing to behold for patriots.
  81. 2021 Wednesday N: California Lottery Results– Here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3553 with a $40 million jackpot on the line: 03, 12, 17, 41, 42, and Mega 23.  Out of 114,936 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $40,636.   The winning ticket was sold at Fast Stop in Lake View Terrace, CA 91342.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #838 with a $90 million pot up for grabs: 21, 25, 32, 63, 67, and Powerball 06.  Out of 50,586 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $27,206.
  82. 2021 Wednesday O: In Long Beach Township, New Jersey, former member of the Four Seasons- bassist Joe LaBracio, aka Joe Long (1965-1975)- died at age 88.

  84. 2022 Thursday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 568,290 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 203,535 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 456 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.              
  85. 2022 Thursday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 9,173,641 confirmed cases, 89,980 confirmed deaths, and 8,934,741 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,939,573 confirmed cases, 73,789 confirmed deaths, and 5,806,452 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 245,035 confirmed cases, 1,407 confirmed deaths, and 238,065 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,479,559 confirmed cases, 12,650 confirmed deaths, and 1,439,677 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Guam: they have 47,902 confirmed cases, 354 confirmed deaths, and 47,259 confirmed recoveries.[xviii]   
  86. 2022 Thursday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 4,047,693 confirmed cases, 10,658 confirmed deaths, and 4,009,152 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Falklands Islands, 219th place on the list: 128 cases of the virus, 0 confirmed death and 128 confirmed recoveries.[xix]

  88. 2022 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.689 per gallon, $4.113 in Florida, $5.243 in Hawaii, and $4.684 in Washington state.[xxiii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Massachusetts- $4.124.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the 23rd LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Colombia: $2.398 per U.S. Gallon.[xxiv] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,399,844,953,328 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Australia the next largest holder of U.S. debt is United Arab Emirates.  This nation holds $40,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  89. 2022 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– Russian President Vladimir Putin is declaring ‘victory over Mariupol’ even though the Ukrainian defenders fighting in the ruins of the steel factory continue killing Russians by the score.  They will not surrender and it’s clear to any observer that Mariupol could become Putin’s Stalingrad, sort of a Putingrad.  Going to be good watching them annihilate the Russians.  In other areas where Ukrainian civilians have been victimized and crushed, the Russians are raising red victory flags.  Sounds like the Soviet Union is struggling to return for Round 2.  The Russians are preparing ‘referendums in the occupied areas’ so the grateful Ukrainians can kowtow to their Soviet masters.
  90. 2022 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II– Although it would be a good show of support for the United States to reopen its embassy in Kyiv, the Biden regime is resisting calls for it to do this morale-boosting step.  WTF is up with slobbering Joe?   Meanwhile, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky says his country requires $7 billion per month to sustain his nation and its fight against the Russians.  Today, we also learned that money Joe Biden is sending to Ukraine also is helping to pay its civil service.  Wow.  In other news, Russia has slapped travel bans on Vice President Kamala Harris, the REAL PRESIDENT Ron Klain, and on Meta-Facebook’s ‘Little Mark’ Zuckerberg.
  91. 2022 Thursday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– The 8th busload of Joe Biden’s illegal aliens arrived in Washington, D.C., today.  Keep ‘em coming.  Next, 21 red states are joining forces to stop the Biden regime ending Title 42 on May 23.  Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border for the past 384 days and it’s been 298 days since she arrived to do the job.  Since the first day of the year, the cost of caring for the illegal aliens is $707,111,130.  The cost of caring for the illegals since the Biden-Harris regime took charge is $42,452,916,873.  The number of illegals who have entered the U.S. since January 01, 2022, is an appalling 1,129,483.  The conservative low estimate of illegals living in the U.S. is 46,561,140.  We believe the truer number is close to 85-125 million illegal aliens. (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).
  92. 2022 Thursday I: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban meets with Pope Francis with the Russo-Ukrainian War as their backdrop.  Meanwhile, mystery continues surrounding WNBA star Britney Griner’s arrest and imprisonment in Russia.  In other horrifying news, Beijing has inked deals with the Solomon Islands and with Kiribati so its ships and security personnel can use them as ‘transit sites.’  (Note- the United States fought at Guadalcanal in the Solomon Islands and at Tarawa in present-day Kiribati during World War II and now the Chi-Coms have built forward bases threatening not only Australia and New Zealand but Hawaii and Guam as well as continues the isolation of Taiwan).
  93. 2022 Thursday J: Health and Medical Alerts– U.S. Senate candidate in Pennsylvania, Dr. Mehmet Oz, says, ‘it’s time to for the U.S. to get back to reality on COVID-19.’  Next, the U.S. claims it’s extending COVID-19 vaccine mandates for illegal aliens at the southern border.  Uh, okay, sure you are.  Illegals can run around without following any COVID-19 mandates while the Biden regime is appealing the judge’s recent ruling ending mask mandates on public transit.
  94. 2022 Thursday K: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer: $49.11 (2) AstraZeneca: $67.39 (3) Novavax: $48.80 (4) Merck & Company: $86.23 (5) Johnson & Johnson: $183.36  (6) BioNTech: $147.84 (7) Moderna: $144.50.

  99. 2022 Thursday P: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden regime is launching a new program with which it claims it will beckon in Ukrainian refugees but not across the U.S.-Mexico border.  That is for the Russians, the Third World, and the Chi-Coms to push their agents across amidst the sea of illegal aliens.  Next, White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain- uh, ‘President’ Joe Biden- announces another $800 million in military aid to Ukraine.  How much will the Biden Family skim off the top?  We shall see.  Meanwhile, the Biden regime has banned Russian vessels from visiting American ports.
  100. 2022 Thursday Q: Joe Biden Regime News II– The FAA is going to review the parachute stunt that occurred yesterday in the nation’s Capital that caused a mass evacuation from the U.S. Capitol Building.  Next, here is one that is a head-scratcher: the U.S. Supreme Court is backing Joe Biden’s decision to DENY benefits to Puerto Rico.  What benefits are we discussing?  Well, these federal benefits provide help to low-income, elderly, and blind citizens.  These benefits provide help to low-income, elderly, and blind citizens and Joe Biden- with the support of the John Roberts’ Supreme Court is denying these benefits to low-income, elderly, and blind Puerto Ricans.  Where the hell is Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DS-NY 14th district, on this topic?  Her Abuelita lives in the PR so she should be screeching like a flipping banshee, yet she’s silent.  (Note- the chief justice must truly fear the Dems packing the court as why would he back a crazy move such as this?)
  101. 2022 Thursday R: Joe Biden Regime News III– Thirteen of the victims of Larry Nassar are suing the Federal Bureau of Investigation for $130 million for having f**ked up the investigation into the perverted coach.  Next, the Biden regime has contracted the release of another 30 million barrels of oil from the nation’s Strategic Petroleum Reserve.  We suspect that like previous withdrawals under the Biden regime, this oil will flow overseas to our ‘allies’ and not to the American people.  Speaking of the oil rip-off, Rep. Rick W. Allen, R-GA 12th district, says that ‘Joe Biden’s energy policies are bringing pain to the American people.’
  102. 2022 Thursday S: Joe Biden Regime News IV– U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen weighed the cost of the Russo-Ukrainian War on Russia’s frozen assets.  Next, Vice President Kamala Harris has lost her 13th staffer- this time, her Chief of Staff Tina Flournoy.  What can you say?  The VP is a bitch who slept her way to the top.  This is fitting justice for one half of this fraudulent administration, YOU steal an election, Karma has a way of coming back and biting you on your ass and this administration is going down the crapper.  Next, left-wing, Obama economist Austan Goolsbee says that the pandemic shutdowns are the main cause of the sky-rocketing inflation eating away at average Americans’ bank accounts.
  103. 2022 Thursday T: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– Famed radio talk show host, Infowars’ Alex Jones, is seeking immunity from the January 06, 2021, Select House Committee.  Next, Donald Trump Jr. is expected to meet with this sham committee.
  104. 2022 Thursday U: Political News I– Although this sounds somewhat hopeful, the Cook Political Report says that 27 Democrat-controlled House seats are in the toss-up column in November.   Next, U.S. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, RINO-CA 23rd congressional district, denies ever having advised President Donald J. Trump that ‘if they impeach you, you should resign.’  He would never have said something such as that, huh.  We are beginning to suspect Leader McCarthy is in the same class with “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell and Senator Mitt Romney, RINO-UT.
  105. 2022 Thursday V: Political News II– Never say that President Donald J. Trump’s endorsements don’t matter (although this one leaves us puzzled).  J.D. Vance- venture capitalist and author- has seen his lead in the race for retiring Senator Rob Portman’s seat in Ohio has leapt by 7 points to the good.  One of his Republican challengers- Mike Gibbons- says he still can’t forget that Vance voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016.  Neither can we.
  106. 2022 Thursday W: Political News III–  Talk about turning something once good into a piece of festering cow crap, other than Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, the JFK Profiles in Courage Award is going to Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY At-large district, as well as to Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, DS, the Copper State’s House Speaker Rusty Bowers, RINO, and to Peach State Election Department employee Wandrea “Shaye” Moss.
  107. 2022 Thursday X: Big Tech News– In a ‘put up or shut up move,’ tech multi-billionaire Elon Musk has $46.5 billion in cash with which to buy Twitter.  The price he is offering is $54.20.  Next, folks, it’s so successful that following its launch on March 29, 2022, it’s official: CNN+ is shutting down on April 30, 2022.  Adios, Chris Wallace.  POS.  In other news, the Florida House of Representatives voted to strip Disney of its special governing and taxation privileges.  This did not come easy, however, as Democrats and their rent-a-mobs of LGBTQIA+ crazed psychos tried to carry out an ‘insurrection’ a la January 6, 2021, of their own although very few news media sites are labeling it as such- but we will.
  108. 2022 Thursday Y: Sports News I– Here’s an interesting one: the NFL says that the black coaches’ discrimination lawsuits lack merit.  Wow.  We thought the NFL was all WOKE now and here they are throwing the black coaches’ suits under the bus.  Shame on them.
  109. 2022 Thursday Z: Miscellaneous News I– The Pro-Death Movement in Kentucky gains a temporary win what with a stay on the state’s new anti-abortion law.  For some reason, the Trump campaign has been ordered to pay $1.3 million in damages and attorneys’ fees to former adviser Omarosa Manigault.  Finally, some glorious film hit the news cycle today.  Some dumbass airlines passenger was hassling Mike Tyson during a flight and wouldn’t take ‘buzz off’ for an answer.  The former heavyweight champion turned around and punched the living shit out of this dimwit who then posted photos of his bloody face on TikTok.  Will they ever learn?

[i] The music of this famed British band, Family as well as the spin-off group, Streetwalkers, appeared on Tuesday, 08-October-2013 through Thursday, 31-October-2013.  Sadly, at the time, we failed to promote the music of both Axis Point as well as Roger Chapman’s solo catalog so we hope to correct those mistakes sometime within the next five years.

[ii] 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.

[iii] 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.

[iv] Not clear as to when we present the music of the Fairport Convention and of Richard Thompson, their famed guitarist but we sure as heck hope we do within the next decade.

[v] We promoted “Led Zeppelin IV” on Saturday, 12-July-2014.  This ranks among the greatest albums of all time.

[vi] This whack-job girl- Greta Thunberg- should get some sort of mental and emotional aid because she and other young people like her have been indoctrinated by people seeking to deploy them to carry out their Marxist agenda.

  27. 1944 Monday: With Mussolini clinging to power, the enemies who sold him out found themselves victims of a show trial- the Verona trials- in northern Italy.  His son-in-law Count Galeazzo Ciano was among those tried and when the trial ended, out of several defendants, only one was spared execution- Tullio Cianetti- who received a 30-year-stretch in a fascist prison until the end of the war.  He won his life because he wrote a letter of apology to Il Duce.

  40. 1969 Friday: In Seattle, Washington, at the 2:58 minute mark of Round 5 of a scheduled 10 round heavyweight boxing match, slugger Jerry Quarry scores a TKO over his opponent, Charlie Reno.  Jerry’s pro record improved to 29-2-4 while Reno’s record’s dropped to 28-2-4.

  52. 2003 Friday: In New York City, N.Y., the former 57th U.S. Treasury Secretary C. Douglas Dillon died at age 93.  A Democrat, he served under Presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon Baines Johnson from January 21, 1961, to April 01, 1965.
  53. 2004 Saturday: CBS issued a damning independent review of mistakes related to a “60 Minutes Wednesday” report on President George W. Bush’s National Guard service and fired three news executives and a producer for their “myopic zeal” in rushing it to air, Dan Rather being among the fired.  Elsewhere, a mudslide in La Conchita, California, crushed homes and killed 10 residents.
  54. 2009 Saturday: Fate definitely can be a bitch.  A small vessel holding eight Somali pirates and their $3 million ransom from the now released supertanker MV Sirius Star capsizes in the Gulf of Aden, sending at least three of the scum to Davey Jones’ locker along with their ransom cash.  Wow.
  55. 2010 Sunday: Surpassing Germany, COMMUNIST China becomes the world’s largest exporter.   Elsewhere in the lovely Gaza Strip, three members of Palestinian Islamic Jihad group firing mortars into neighboring Israel got the surprise of their lives when they were killed.  We are unclear as to whether the human fecal matter’s weapon of choice blew up on them via a misfire or if the Israelis lit them up and left the remnants of their bodies littering the sand.  Either way, it was a good day for civilization.
  56. 2011 Monday: President Barack Obama is heading to Tucson, Arizona, for a memorial for the victims killed in the same shooting that critically injured Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, D-AZ 8th congressional district, and 13 others while claiming the lives of at least six.  A judge denies the shooter- nut Jared Loughner bail and remands the POS to the slammer.  Meanwhile, following the Saturday shooting, Congress plans to put forth new restrictions on 2nd Amendment rights.
  57. 2012 Tuesday: Mitt Romney wins the New Hampshire Republican Presidential Primary; Ron Paul places second and John Huntsman places third.  Elsewhere, Pakistan being a haven for crazed jihadists is not safe from the scourge they welcome with open arms.  In the Khyber Agency of the country, jihadist bombers carry out a massive suicide bombing that propels 29 people howling and shrieking up to Allah and leaves another 50 in one form of devastation or another. 
    WTF is wrong with these people!
  58. 2013 Thursday: A shooting at Taft Union High School in Taft, California, took place as troubled student, Brian Oliver, shot one individual, Bowe Cleveland, and wounded one other student, both of whom had repeatedly bullied him for being Gay.  Elsewhere, Quetta, Pakistan, is in a mess.  Following a bombing at a marketplace by members of the so-called ‘religion of peace’ that murdered 11 people and injured loads of others, a thug enters a billiard hall, detonates a suicide vest, and in the ensuing explosion, sends at least 81 followers of Islam to commune with Allah far sooner than any of them anticipated in doing and leaves another 120 in varying states of agony, many wishing they could have been among the first number and not among the latter.  Time for a reformation of the faith!
  59. 2014 Friday:  Indonesia’s Mount Sinabung erupts again, with pyroclastic flows streaming down the volcanic slope; the activity has caused the evacuation of 22,000 people from the danger zone around Sinabung.  Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms are once again up to no good.  Flexing their communist muscles, they slap a ‘fishing permit rule’ on all fishing vessels operating in the South China Sea, a body of water the communists claim as theirs.  This, of course, causes outrage from the United States, Vietnam, and the Philippines. 
  60. 2015 Saturday:  Commercial space company SpaceX successfully launches its Falcon 9 rocket, which has released the Dragon cargo ship into orbit to the International Space Station; the rocket returned to Earth after releasing the Dragon but had a rough landing.  Elsewhere, rock star David Bowie[xiii] died after battling cancer for 18 months.
  61. 2016 Sunday: Mexico begins the process of extraditing narcoterrorist Joaquim “El Chapo” Guzman to the United States.  Meanwhile, in Yemen, five people are killed in a bombing on a Doctors without Borders hospital.
  62. 2017 Tuesday: As Inauguration Day reports, ‘unsubstantiated reports’ arise that ‘Russia has compromising material on President-elect Donald J. Trump.’  This story turns out to be completely bogus.  Speaking of the crap the leftists are using against the incoming president, the confirmation hearings for Senator Jeff Sessions to become the next attorney general of the United States are interrupted (like it wasn’t planned, right) who storm the Senate chamber screaming, “No Trump!  No KKK!  No Fascist USA!’  Does anyone care to tell us this crap was not pre-planned?
  63. 2018 Wednesday: Following the amazing mark that Jeff Bezos’ personal wealth hits $106 billion due to a rise in the price of Amazon shares, he becomes the second man in the world to possess wealth in surplus of $100 billion.   This is a man that Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders- among others- want to destroy.  Meanwhile, President Trump digs in on his demand for funding for the border wall: “WE NEED THE WALL.”
  64. 2019 Thursday: According to data published in the scientific journal “Science,” the world’s oceans are warming faster than expected due to the burning of fossil fuels.  Many believe this is all propaganda designed to bring about the formation of a one-world government that leaders of the Third World will control and with which to redistribute the wealth of First World nations to S-hole countries.  Elsewhere, today is the first day that federal government workers miss a paycheck- all 800,000 of them- which leads to Democrats stirring up protests and ginning up anger among their street trash.
  65. 2020 Friday: Democrats are now blaming President Donald J. Trump for the Iranian shootdown of a Ukrainian jetliner that killed 176 people aboard her.  Yes, their arguments are convoluted and crazy but it’s all they have.  Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, chewing her cud[xiv], says she is ‘going to send the articles of impeachment to the U.S. Senate NEXT week.’  Most political observers are skeptical of this statement.  However, the dilapidated speaker says she will meet with her caucus in the House on Tuesday.  Does she possess the pair of humongous balls to move ahead?  We suspect she will because AOC is plotting behind her back.  Meanwhile, Tehran swears on a stack of holy Qurans that they did NOT shoot down the Ukrainian airliner.  Finally, Marianne Williamson becomes the 14th Democrat to abandon the 2020 race.  Oprah- WTF did you continue supporting someone you encouraged to enter the race.
  66. 2021 Sunday: The NFL’s Wildcard Weekend continues today with three more games in our expanded playoff format: (4) Baltimore Ravens, 20 (12-5) @ Tennessee Titans, 13 (11-6) (5) Chicago Bears, 9 (8-9) @ New Orleans Saints, 21 (13-4) and (6) Cleveland Browns, 48 (12-5) @ Pittsburgh Steelers, 37 (12-5).  Regarding the NFL, Pepsi says it’s going to concentrate on the upcoming Super Bowl LV half-time show and not so much on TV commercials. 
  67. 2021 Sunday A: In what many believe to be ‘too much, too late,’ the House Democrats have their articles of impeachment against President Donald J. Trump ready to go tomorrow.  Most believe their hope is to prevent the 45th president from seeking federal office ever again if they are able to squeeze a successful vote to impeach vote out of the U.S. Senate.  A growing number of Republicans are urging incoming ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden to order House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi to stop the proceedings as it will only rip the country further apart.  NO one expects that Biden will stop them, he wants to see his predecessor suffer.  Mitch McConnell, R-KY, says that the Senate won’t reconvene until January 19 so no impeachment proceedings can begin until Inauguration Day.  Meanwhile, the House of Representatives plans to increase travel security for its members following Senator Lindsey Graham being heckled at Reagan International Airport.  Elsewhere, D.C. Mayor says she is ‘concerned about securing ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden’s safety’ on Inauguration Day which tells us that the Democrats plan on another FALSE FLAG operation on January 20, 2021, in which white Antifa members will be dressed in Trump garb and will riot across the city.  How diabolical.
  68. 2021 Sunday B: In a move that surprised NO one, the Pentagon says it’s going to rename U.S. military bases named for Confederate States of America war heroes.  Wimps.   Meanwhile, the U.S. military is upping its preparations for Inauguration Day.  Regarding this matter and the storming of Capitol Hill this past Wednesday, former NYPD Police Commissioner Bill Bratton says he’s shocked at the lack of preparedness exhibited by the Capitol Hill police.  Perhaps he did not see the tape where cops behind the Capitol Building were waving the demonstrators into the facility?  Seems as though they had orders to allow the Antifa mob in.  Speaking of Antifa, Fox News’ Judge Jeannine Pirro says, “Republicans must stop blaming Antifa for Wednesday’s events.”  F— you, judge.  
  69. 2021 Sunday C: BIG TECH giants have coordinated their attack on FREE SPEECH alternative to Twitter, Parler, with most app stores and server sites announcing they are either out of their stores or will be closed and denied server service come midnight tonight.  Likewise, Brad Parscale- former Trump campaign manager- says he urged President Trump to go to Parler sooner because he anticipated that Facebook and Twitter would ban the 45th president’s social media accounts sooner than they did.  Speaking of BIG TECH, RINO Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, swears he’s going to do something about Section 230.  Sure, Lindsey, sure.  Regarding Section 230 which came up during the formation of the Defense bill, there is funding in that document for the creation of a new cyber czar to oversee America’s cyber defenses.
  70. 2021 Sunday D: Scientists report that the Earth is spinning faster on its axis than it has in decades.  Meanwhile, scientists also tell us that 2020 was a devastating year for costly climate events what with 22 events costing a billion dollars or more per each event.  Of course, this will lead the incoming 46th president to force the Green New Deal through both houses of Congress and into high-tax reality.  Not good for the American people.  Elsewhere, a tornado touches down in the central Texas town of Franklin which leaves hundreds of families displaced.
  71. 2021 Sunday E: Israel is deploying its anti-missile defenses pending threat of Iranian nuclear strikes.  The mullahs are always jabbering about nuking Israel, we should nuke them first.  Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo lifts self-imposed restrictions on visiting Taiwan.  This will allow the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations to visit the Republic of China which has Beijing upset.  Next, Indonesian divers pull wreckage and body parts from the Srivijaya Air Passenger jet that crashed earlier this week north of Jakarta.  Elsewhere, the Capitol Hill police officer whose head was stoved in by an Antifa thug wielding a fire extinguisher this past Wednesday- Officer Brian D. Sicknick- may lie in state in the Capitol Rotunda.  
  72. 2021 Sunday F: Crowdfunding site “GoFundMe” says, ‘it’s going to ban the raising of funds for those who challenged the 2020 Presidential Election.’  How nice.   Meanwhile, Bitcoin doubles in price to a new record in less than 30 days.  Love that cryptocurrency. 
  73. 2021 Sunday G: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 90,180,310 confirmed cases, +663,871, 1,932,948, confirmed deaths, +8,944, and 49,948,772 confirmed recoveries, +279,343.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 24,451,123 confirmed cases, up 119,755 from yesterday’s reporting, 376,521 confirmed deaths, UP 1,482, and 9,850,654 confirmed recoveries, UP 22,750.
  74. 2021 Sunday 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: 2,687,085 confirmed cases, 29,701 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 23,341 confirmed cases, 309 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 275,832 confirmed cases, 3,775 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Kansas: currently, they have 345,541 confirmed cases, 3,148 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 491,319 confirmed cases, 3,671 confirmed deaths, and 412,296 confirmed recoveries. 
  75. 2021 Sunday I: Senator Pat Toomey, RINO-PA, joins fellow RINO Senator from Alaska Lisa Murkowski to demand that President Trump step down from the presidency because of HIS CALLING HIS FOLLOWERS TO REVOLT which he did not do.  The impeachment articles being introduced tomorrow have 185 co-sponsors.  Currently, federal law enforcement is arresting numerous people who participated in the storming of the Capitol Building on Wednesday but NO mention of them being Antifa members (which we know they are).  Still, this is the direction in which, we are going- full left-wing lockdown thanks to the Dems and the RINOs doing what they are doing.
  76. 2021 Sunday I: Folks, we live in crazy times but there is ONE CONSTANT that does not change- the crookedness of money-grubbing Democrats and their RINO pals and buddies and the unseen hand behind the curtain- the Chi-Coms in Beijing.  We encourage everyone to stick around and discover whatever the truth may be today- you will be glad you did.
  77. 2022 Monday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album delivered by Fairport Convention was a ‘blast from the past,’ culled by an archivist: “Acoustically Downunder” (06-29-2005), an album of live music from 1996 while the band was on tour in Australia.  The band included virtuoso Maartin Allcock (guitars, mandolins, and the bouzouki), Ric Sanders (violins), Dave Pegg (acoustic and electric basses, and tenor mandola), Simon Nichol (guitars), and Dave Swarbrick (fiddle).  It is amazing- and extremely enjoyable- to envision each of these performances with your mind and ears.  We love it, we know you will love it, too, and you can find it at almost every site specializing in classic rock/folk rock music such as Amazon, Discogs, AllMusic, eBay, you name it, it’s available.  We hope you do check it out as we believe you will love this band as much as we do.  Enjoy.

[iii] We should have done the music of Journey when we did the music of Santana or the Steve Miller Band.  We f**ked up.

[iv] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.  This presentation included the Jefferson Starship, too, of which, the artist was NOT a member.

[v] We expect to promote the music of Steely Dan sometime within the next decade or so.

[vi] At some point when we return to presenting the music of American bands, we will promote that of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers as well as of Tom Petty himself.  We hope you will await word as to when we do.  We thank you.

[vii] We look forward to promoting the music of UFO and of the Michael Schenker Group at some point within the next year.  We hope you will remain vigilant as to the day that we do.

[xii] Sometime within the next decade, we hope to present the music of classic rockers Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters, and numerous others.  We know you will enjoy the presentation so please; remain vigilant for the day we do.

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

[xiv] Many people who contact us with comments are curious as to why someone so deranged as Nancy Pelosi is allowed to continue in her post.  Why hasn’t her No. 2, Steny Hoyer, D-Md., not come up behind her and busted a cap on her head?  We have no answer.  However, many believe that the Baby Evita- AOC- aka the FLY- is the one calling the shots and that older Democrats fear having her primary them in this year’s elections by putting up nuts like her, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib, to take them out.  Time for a ‘Night of the Long Knives,’ folks, to remove these youngsters as threats to the established order.

Rosenstein says that he will leave his post once a new attorney general undergoes confirmation.  Elsewhere, federal prosecutors accuse former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort of having passed campaign information to ‘Russian operatives.’
  63. 2020 Wednesday: President Trump tells the assembled media that ‘As long as he is president, Iran will NEVER have nuclear weapons.’  The president also urged NATO to take a greater role in the Middle East while encouraging all other signatories of the Iran Nuclear Deal- including Russia and China- to bail out.  In addition to that, President Trump promised even more sanctions against the Iranian regime with the desired purpose of having the dictatorship return to the society of nations.  Defense and intelligence officials brief Congress on the missile barrage the Iranians shot off in the vicinity of U.S. targets in Iraq.  Sparse damage was sustained, and no lives were lost although Radio Tehran bragged about 80 or more American casualties.   Some Democrats continue labeling President Trump an ‘assassin’ while most Americans believe what he did to be justified.  
  64. 2021 Friday: It appears that Democrats are cowering in their corners over what President Donald J. Trump ‘might do in the days remaining to him.’  Could he release all sorts of data on “Pro-China Joe” Biden, the Democrat leadership, and others and their close ties to the Chi-Coms?  Hence why the Dems are urging Vice President Mike Pence to commune with the Cabinet (members leaving as we speak) so they can use the 25th Amendment to remove the 45th president (Pence won’t) or why they are proclaiming they are going to launch a second impeachment against President Trump in the less than two weeks remaining in his term.  In the same vein, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi spoke to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff- General Mark A. Milley to see if he would prohibit President Trump from launching nuclear barrages against the Chi-Coms, Iran, and other enemies of the U.S.  Wow.  Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal Editorial board says, ‘Trump should resign now.’
  65. 2021 Friday A: “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his wife, Jill, announce their first priority on entering the White House is to spend $1.2 million taxpayer dollars to renovate the bathrooms in the private residence.  Uh, okay, extremely important.  “Let them eat cake,” says Dr. Jill.  Next, ‘Vice President-elect Kooky Kamala’ Harris is taking heat from people across the board for her lambasting the purported Trump supporters’ riot on Capitol Hill on Wednesday when she encourage Black Lives Matter and Antifa to riot all summer, fall, and into the winter.  What a VP choice, folks, what a VP choice.   Speaking of violence, U.S. Catholic bishops condemn Wednesday’s riots.  Finally, the Boston bomber is suing the federal government over the prison restrictions forced upon him.
  66. 2021 Friday B:  Extreme intellect LeBron James says, “We live in two Americas.”  Yes, indeed, and you, you big POS, live in the upper crust one.  STFU.  Note of interest: we learned late last night that Marxist Chicago ‘Priest’ Father Michael Pfleger friend of Barack Hussein Obama- is stepping down from the priesthood seeing as how there are now allegations of child sexual abuse against him.  Oh, how the mighty fall.  On a humorous note, Senator Lindsey Graham, RINO Republican from South Carolina, receives loads of catcalls and negative rhetoric as he tries to head to his plane at Reagan International Airport.   About flipping time!  Finally, we learn that chief of staff to Vice President Mike Pence- Mark Strong- is the one who urged the VP not to fight the certification of the 2020 Presidential Election.  He is now barred from entering the White House grounds.  Remember that name: Mark Strong.  He hopes both he and VP Pence will have bought a future in mainstream Washington, D.C. politics.  (Note- President Trump is not going to attend the Biden-Harris inauguration but Mr. Pence will.  Florida Senator Rick Scott is also encouraging the 45th president to attend.  WHY?).  Speaking of maggots- former chief of staff General John Kelly, U.S. Army Ret., says he ‘would vote to remove Trump.’ 
  67. 2021 Friday C: President Trump awards the medal of freedom to three golfers- Annika Sorenstam, Gary Player, and Babe Zaharias.   Meanwhile, Ronna McDaniel is elected to another term as chair of the Republican National
    Committee whereas Hope Hicks says she is leaving next week.  Larry Kudlow and U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin are both remaining to the end of Trump’s term.    Next, President Trump promises to be a GIANT VOICE for his followers, all 77-80 million of them.  Finally, Simon and Schuster cancels Senator Josh Hawley’s book deal following his role in contesting the election results (which all the losers- both right and left- are using as an excuse to jump ship).
  68. 2021 Friday D: The U.S. has lost 140,000 jobs, the first monthly loss since the spring when government told us ‘we need to shut everything down for two weeks so we can flatten the curve.’  Result: a destroyed economy.  Elsewhere, Dodgers’ longtime player and manager Tommy Lasorda dead at age 93.  God bless you, Tommy!  Thank you for 1988!  Meanwhile, Elon Musk becomes the richest man in the world with $195 billion which is 10 billion more than Amazon.com owner Jeff Bezos.  Finally, Georgia U.S. Senator David Perdue follows in the footsteps of fellow Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler and concedes to his opponent, Sinophile and far-left-left-left Democrat Jon Ossoff.  It is over and it is done.
  69. 2021 Friday E: Former Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, U.S. Army Ret., and former national security adviser finds himself banned from Twitter.  U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the “U.S. is not a banana republic.” Elsewhere, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau blasts Trump for ‘inciting an assault on democracy.’ Mind your own business, twerp.  Meanwhile, the Rupert Murdoch empire calls for Trump to go but seeks to cling to the Trump base.  Finally, a report says that pipe bombs delivered to the RNC, and the DNC contained timing devices.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Castle Music label compiled a ‘best of’ collection for Sandy Denny that came out on April 12, 2005: “Where the Time Goes- Sandy ‘67.”  The album features a collection of 18 glorious tracks running from her earliest days prior to her association with Fairport Convention, Fotheringay, and Fairport Convention again and prior to her final solo career.  Thus, you get lots of acoustic Sandy mostly alone but with others including a unique collaboration with the Strawbs, another folkie acoustical group from the UK.  We hope you will investigate this one for yourselves, give it a good listen, and then consider adding it to your growing collection of music from this devoted vocalist and songwriter.  You will be so glad you did.  Enjoy.

  59. 2020 Monday: At the Golden Globes, actress Michelle Williams celebrates her abortion before a likeminded crowd of liberal losers and activists.  What the hell is up with the Pro-Death movement?  Killing the unborn is the most sadistic, evil thing one can do.  Yet, these pro-Satanists celebrate it like they’re killing cockroaches.  Shame.  Meanwhile, U.S. Senator Kelly Loeffler enters the world’s greatest deliberative body on today’s date representing the Peach State.  Elsewhere, ever-disloyal John Bolton says, ‘I’m willing to testify at President Donald J. Trump’s impeachment trial.’  Perfect example of a Deep State apparatchik.   
  60. 2021 Wednesday: Millions of patriots arrived in the nation’s capital today to support President Trump.  The president spoke to them and rallied the crowd.  Then, the certification of the 2020 Presidential Election began today.  Disputes arose early over the first state in question- Arizona- which sent both chambers of Congress to debate the election fraud.  Of course, the RINOs and their Democratic Party taskmasters say, ‘NO election fraud occurred’ while the country understands that ‘yes, indeed, loads of fraud did occur and needs to be addressed.’  Even California’s 55 electoral votes are being called into question due to millions of illegal aliens voting.  Finally, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, called for an ‘emergency 10-day audit of the election’ saying BOTH parties should welcome such an audit, so their voters accept the election results.
  61. 2021 Wednesday A: Next, as the chambers were debating Arizona’s election results, the crowd marched to the Capitol Building.  Then, a segment of the crowd erupted into violence and stormed the building itself sending lawmakers and their staffs into the basement for security.  We heard of gunshots having occurred inside.  Folks, it is clear that the LEFT is pulling out ALL stops here and have infiltrated the peaceful protesters with Antifa and Black Lives Matter human refuse.  People screaming, “TRUMP WON,” and other things favorable to the president to give the impression it’s his people doing the rioting.  This is straight out of Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” and it’s clear that the Democrats are behind all of this so they can continue the narrative that ‘President Trump is launching a coup.’  What a flipping mess but you must give the Democratic-Socialists credit as they know how to cause mob violence, misdirect blame, and topple elections.  Our country is in trouble.
  62. 2021 Wednesday B: It appears that BOTH Democrats won the Senate races in Georgia: Reverend Raphael Warnock with a count of 2,230,231 (51%) to 2,176,048 (49%) for Senator Kelly Loeffler.  As for Jon Ossoff, numbers show 2,211,603 (50%) votes to 2,194,578 (50%) for Senator David Perdue.  Of course, counting continues but we know the score.   Meanwhile, Georgia Democrat Congressman Vernon Jones says he is going to leave the Dems and become a Republican.
  63. 2021 Wednesday C: Facebook is ordered to pay nearly $5 million in fines for having stolen an Italian app.  Next, Samsung’s profits for the fourth quarter are expected to rise by one-third.  Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms arrest 50-plus pro-democracy activists in Hong Kong following the recent passage of their criminal national security law.  Meanwhile, Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts says workers at meat processing plants will be the next in line to receive the vaccine for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Finally, a UK judge denies WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange bail.    
  64. 2021 Wednesday D: Stick around for the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3523 with a $9 million jackpot up for grabs and the Powerball Draw #809 with a $410 million jackpot up for grabs.   First, here are the results for the Super Lotto drawing: 04, 29, 33, 34, 44, and Mega 21.  The highest winners were 13 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $1,448 apiece.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball drawing: 01, 20, 22, 60, 66, and Powerball 03.  the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $29,944 apiece.
  65. 2021 Wednesday E: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 86,752,314 confirmed cases, +556,758, 1,875,320, confirmed deaths, +11,667, and 48,637,236 confirmed recoveries, +227,332.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 21,208,840 confirmed cases, up 34,415 from yesterday’s reporting, 359,845 confirmed deaths, UP 501, and 9,595,733 confirmed recoveries, UP 45,568.
  66. 2021 Wednesday F: 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: 2,511,795 confirmed cases, 27,462 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 22,527 confirmed cases, 289 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 263,713 confirmed cases, 3,611 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Maryland: currently, they have 292,904 confirmed cases, 6,132 confirmed deaths, and 9,391 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 463,448 confirmed cases, 3,529 confirmed deaths, and 393,712 confirmed recoveries.  Here’s a laugh: Beijing stooge, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus of the World Health Organization is ‘upset’ with the Chi-Coms because they won’t permit this flunky to enter their country to investigate the outbreak of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.
  67. 2021 Wednesday G:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,829.40, UP 437.80 points (+1.44%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,740.79, DOWN 78.17 points (-0.61%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,748.14, UP 21.28 points (+0.57%).  The price of GOLD is $1,924.90 per troy oz., +16.30 (+0.85%) while the price of SILVER is $27.40 per troy ounce, +0.353 (+1.31%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,113.70 per troy oz, +3.50 (+0.32%) while the price of COPPER is $3.66 per pound, +0.0125 (+0.34%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,448.10 per troy oz, -45.30 (-1.82%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $50.51 per barrel, -0.12 (-0.24%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.81 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.67.
  68. 2021 Wednesday H: “Pro-China Joe” Biden says he will nominate Judge Merrick Garland to be his attorney general.  Meanwhile, liberals are pushing for U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer to retire.   Speaking of liberals, Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, D-MN, says she is drafting articles of impeachment against President Donald J. Trump.  Finally, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi drafted new rules to squelch GOP attempts at getting answers for the fraudulent 2020 Presidential Election. 
  69. 2021 Wednesday I: World leaders condemn ‘assault on democracy’ at the U.S. Capitol Building.  Elsewhere, Beijing slams ‘U.S. bullying’ over Trump’s ban on some 8 Chi-Com ‘money-gathering’ (intelligence-gathering if you must know) apps popular in the U.S. and around the world.  Speaking of hackers and intelligence gathering operations, the Department of Justice says its ‘emails were breached by the SolarWinds hack.’   Meanwhile, some GOP senators now plan to withdraw objections to certification of the 2020 Presidential Election following the mob violence outside the capitol.  How convenient.  It is like Senator Tom Cotton, R-Arkansas, saying that what happened today was bad and that ‘violence should never occur.’  Yet, no one wants to admit the truth: Antifa insinuated themselves into the Stop the Steal protesters and once at the Capitol Building ran amok, leading to two shootings and one death.  
  70. 2021 Wednesday: Today is the day when we believe all hell is going to break loose in Washington, D.C., as the Electoral College results are certified or not.  Let us hope brave politicians of both parties will fight to keep America free and independent and not a satellite state of the fricking Chi-Coms.
  71. 2022 Thursday: Everyone, join us later in the day for updates!

Wednesday, January 06, 2021, Today in History:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We will present the music of Chicago sometime in 2030 so we hope you will remain with us until then.

[ii] We look forward to sharing the music of Pink Floyd- as well as the band’s members- sometime within the next 5-6 years.

[iii] Not clear as to when we present the music of the Fairport Convention and of Richard Thompson, their famed guitarist but we sure as heck hope we do within the next decade.

[iv] We promoted the music of Led Zeppelin- among other numerous interconnected bands beginning with the Yardbirds on Wednesday, 02-July-2014 through vocalist Paul Rodgers of both Free and Bad Company on Sunday, 19-October-2014.  We definitely hope you will check them all out.

  64. 2020 Tuesday G: The population of Hawaii declines for the fourth straight year in a row.  Elsewhere, Spain announces it is going to establish a list of those who refuse to take the COVID-19 vaccines as a way of isolating them from society.  And there are those who scoff at the idea of the ‘Mark of the Beast.’  Speaking of the Chi-Vi vaccine, ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden pledges a swifter roll-out of the Beijing Bat Flu vaccine as soon as he enters office.  Is he, too, considering a registry of those who say, “F**k the vaccine?”  In this world, we just don’t know.  Meanwhile, always-wrong Dr. Tony Fauci says, “I’ve never thought about running for office.”  Good.  Don’t.  Regarding Dr. Fauci- ever the ‘optimist,’ he says prepare for a worse January regarding the Kung Flu.  Yikes.
  65. 2020 Tuesday H: “Incoming national security adviser” Jake Sullivan under ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe” Biden is whining that the Pentagon is NOT meeting with them.  Elsewhere, a lawsuit charges the Hawaiian Sweet Bread Company with not being ‘Hawaiian enough.’  Next, the cops involved in the Breonna Taylor case have now all been fired.  Meanwhile, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms is on her backfoot due to the massive increase in shootings in the once lovely city including the recent death of a seven-year-old girl.  People- stop with the Defund the Police bull crap.  It’s stupid.

  67. 2020 Tuesday J: Luke Letlow, incoming GOP congressman-elect from Louisiana dies at age 41, a victim of the Beijing Bat Bug.  He became ill last week, went to the hospital, became well enough to return home, then worsened and had to return to the hospital where he died.  Why didn’t they provide him with hydroxychloroquine?
  68. 2020 Tuesday:  You know as well as we do that the Democratic stooges are fast at work terrifying the GOP into folding on Trump and the 2020 Electoral College confirmation coming up on January 6, 2021.  Their Chi-Com backers are urging them on, so we encourage everyone to stick around to discover what the heck they’re up to…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Richard Thompson released his next studio album, “The Old Kit Bag,” on February 10, 2003.  Once again, the legendary guitarist delivered the goods which music critics consider to be among his best works yet did not fare well in the stores.  Grunge was exploding all over the place and it was difficult for old-timers to remain current yet in our eyes, Mr. Thompson is ALWAYS current no matter what anyone else thinks.  Joining the smoking hot guitarist/vocalist are (1) Michael Jerome (drums, percussion); (2) Danny Thompson (bass); and (3) Judith Owen (vocals).  For some, Thompson is an acquired taste and for loads of others, his music is always a joy to behold.  We hope you will investigate this one to your hearts’- and ears’- content.  We think you will be glad you did.

  58. 2019 Tuesday: Following the release of ‘explosive emails’ regarding the phone call between President Donald J. Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, the Democrats in the Senate are demanding ‘impeachment witnesses.’  This din of demands for witnesses will reach a cacophony over the next couple of weeks as the Democrats want the Senate to do the job, they were unable to do: find evidence of wrongdoing by President Trump.  Meanwhile, President Trump blasts the cruel treatment of Roger Stone and Gen. Mike Flynn and dodges questions as to whether he will pardon them or he won’t.
  59. 2020 Thursday: As if restaurant workers already don’t have enough problems, the Labor Department is considering a law that will force tip employees- as long as they make minimum wage which they have since the 1980s- share their tips with the BACK OF THE HOUSE EMPLOYEES.  This is crazy, they already MUST declare their tips as part of their wages which has cost tip workers loads of money but now, this is even more insane.  This cannot happen.  Where is that dingbat, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez? 
  60. 2020 Thursday A: Black pastors condemn Senator Kelly Loeffler’s attacks on the ‘Reverend’ Raphael Warnock as an attack on the ‘BLACK CHURCH.’  It’s not an attack on the ‘Black Church,’ it’s an attack on a Marxist.  Are black churches “Marxist?”   Regarding the two Senate run-off races in Georgia, “Pro-China Joe” Biden says he ‘won’t name anymore Cabinet picks until January.”  He is afraid that if he continues naming leftists, people will vote GOP- which we hope they do.
  61. 2020 Thursday B: A recent USA poll says that ’50 percent of Americans see President Donald J. Trump as a failed president.’  This means that 50-percent of Americans see him as ‘successful.’  (He also is considering a special counsel to look into 2020).  Speaking of Fake News outlets, Fox News Channel ratings have dropped an astounding 30-percent.  Wow.  We’re surprised that that’s all.  Another poll down in Georgia says, ‘women voters are split among the senatorial candidates.’  Why?  Warnock is an angry black communist and Jon Ossoff is a pro-Chi-Com closet queen.  Neither of these two should appeal to any woman worth her salt.  
  62. 2020 Thursday C: The GOP says, “NO” to President Trump’s demands for $2,000 stimulus checks for each American instead of giving money to foreign countries and the despicable illegal aliens raping our country.  What’s up with this, Republicans?  Meanwhile, newly pardoned Roger Stone rebukes the ‘Soviet-style show trials’ conducted by the Democrats and their hirelings on the courts.  Look at what they’ve done to the patriots who served the 45th president like Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn, Ret. U.S. Army.  It was criminal what they’ve done to him.  Even better, Roger Stone plans on suing the FBI, James Comey, Bill Barr, Robert Mueller III, and his gang of hacks, as well as the Department of Justice.  You go, Roger, you go!  Speaking of Attorney General Barr, he left office on this date.   Barr first took his post as the 85th AG on February 14, 2019.  His successor- Acting U.S. Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen- assumed office on this date and would serve until January 02, 2021.
  63. 2020 Thursday D: The Kremlin says new U.S. sanctions could complicate Nord Stream 2’s completion.  Ah, well.  CISA (Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency) say that the hacks of the SolarWinds digital security provider are affecting state and local governments the most.  Many believe Russia’s cyber attacks must be viewed as nuclear strikes.  Let’s light those backwards M-F’ers up.  Speaking of Russia’s boss, communist China, the Chi-Coms are launching an antitrust suit against THEIR company, Alibaba.  Curious.  Elsewhere, Great Britain and the European Union finally reach agreement on Brexit.  About time.
  64. 2020 Thursday E: Christine Mohr, former canine officer in Maryland’s Prince George County publicly thanked President Donald J. Trump for her full pardon.  Following an incident in 1995 when her police dog bit a burglary suspect, she received a 10-year prison sentence over a ‘civil rights violation’ when her dog bit the punk.  What the f**k is wrong in this country when cops are sent to prison over stupid-assed shit?  Elsewhere, Wall Street executives are fleeing New York City for south Florida for its weather and its low taxes.  Go figure.  Meanwhile, Maryland authorities investigate the explosion that occurred yesterday at the Baltimore Gas and Electric building that toppled the roof and sent 21 people to the hospital.
  65. 2020 Thursday F: South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem says she ‘won’t primary’ RINO Republican Senator Jon Thune in 2022.  Meanwhile, Representative Ted Budd, R-NC, joins the GOP-led effort to REJECT the 2020 Presidential Election’s Electoral College votes due to the rampant voter fraud and corruption exhibited by elected officials.  Excellent.   Elsewhere, Democrat Congressman Rick Larsen of Washington state becomes the latest politician infected with the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Hydroxychloroquine works extremely well, sir.  Speaking of the Chi-Com Fever, the Russians claim- get this- that while they were working on the so-called ‘Sputnik vaccine’ to use against their Chi-Com masters’ lab-engineered pandemic, they also have a prototype vaccine for HIV-AIDS.  Who wants to be first in line for that crap?   
  66. 2020 Thursday G: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Yellow Fever, Chi-Com Virus, the Wuhan Horseshoe Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 79,226,905 confirmed cases, +755,130, 1,739,456, confirmed deaths, +13,497, and 44,628,688 confirmed recoveries, +408,889 (same number as reported a week ago).  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 18,829,110 confirmed cases, UP 220,038 from yesterday’s reporting, 332,145 confirmed deaths, UP 2,973, and 8,270,113 confirmed recoveries, UP 44,542.  Here are the stats for Israel now that Mo is living there: 389,502 confirmed cases, 3,170 confirmed deaths, and 354,616 confirmed recoveries.
  67. 2020 Thursday H: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous, anti-communist American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 2,012,960 confirmed cases, 23,635 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 20,749 confirmed cases, 285 confirmed deaths, and as of last week, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 234,832 confirmed cases, 3,245 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Wisconsin- currently, they have 500,443 confirmed cases, 4,956 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Tony Evers- leftwing POS.
  68. 2020 Thursday I: Due to all the people becoming ill with the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- the Pelosi Pox, nurses are sending out an SOS for additional help.  They are being overrun at the moment.  Meanwhile, much of continental Europe as well as the Empire State are closing off air travel from Great Britain (and some are closing off travel from South Africa) due to the new strain of the Wuhan Virus Crisis that is now running amok in the UK.  Although said NOT to be as lethal as the original strain of COVID-19, it is highly more contagious which means more people sickened requiring greater resources.  SOMEONE TELL US THAT THE CHI-COMS DID NOT DO THIS ON PURPOSE!  Stop bitching about Russia, the country to nuke is communist China NOW (or infect them with one of our own biowarfare agents).  Meanwhile, as leftists in the United States are urging minorities to receive the virus before whites as some sort of sick form or reparations, Chef Bea O’Malley of the AICPENDBLOG.COM says, “We’ve been down this road before.  When white people are telling black people they need to take some medication, it’s time to watch the heck out because we’ve been there, done that, and it never works out well for us.”  Amen, Bea, amen.
  69. 2020 Wednesday J: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,199.87, UP 70.04 points (+0.23%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,804.73, UP 33.62 points (+0.26%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,703.06, UP 13.05 points (+0.35%).  The price of GOLD is $1,882.60 per troy oz., -0.60 (-0.02%) while the price of SILVER is $25.94 per troy ounce, +0.037 (+0.14%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,027.20 per troy oz, -1.70 (-0.17%) while the price of COPPER is $3.57 per pound, +0.009 (+0.25%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,339.10 per troy oz, +16.00 (+0.69%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $48.30 per barrel, +0.07 (+0.15%).  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.  On Christmas Eve, let’s have some fun- one-dollar U.S. = 73.86 Russian Rubles. 
  70. 2020 Thursday K: NO Thursday Night NFL game tonight.  The game will be played tomorrow at 1:30 P.M. on Christmas Day- (1) Minnesota Vikings (6-8) @ New Orleans Saints (10-4).

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Guitar-slinger Richard Thompson went on the road to promote his wonderful album, “Mock Tudor,” which resulted in a live album- “Semi-Detached Mock Tudor”- an album that hit record store shelves on June 15, 2002.  Joining Mr. Thompson (guitars/vocals) are Pete Zorn (multi-instruments), Teddy Thompson (guitars, backing vocals), Danny Thompson (bass), and Michael Jerome (drums).  If you have yet to introduce the music of this long-lived guitarist, this is a superb way in which one can do it.  We hope you will seek it out wherever you shop for the absolute best in rock music- perhaps even going to the artist’s site- and picking it up.  You will be glad you did, undoubtedly.  Seek it out now.

Thursday, December 24, 2020, Today in History:

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

ENDNOTES:

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

[ii] We look forward to promoting the music of Thin Lizzy when we promote the music of U2, sometime within the next 4-5 years.  We hope you will be with us when we do.

[iii] We promoted the music of the Mothers of Invention as well as of Frank Zappa, beginning on Monday, 21-January-2013 through Monday, 13-May-2013.  We hope you will check them out and consider adding them to your collection as they are one of America’s finest rock bands.

[iv] Our attitude is such that any illegal alien parent brings their brat along with them- or worse- puts them in the hands of human traffickers- whatever happens to them is on YOU- not us, not Mexico, or anyone else.

WE THANK EVERYONE FOR JOINING US AT WORDPRESS.COM AND FOR AIDING US IN CONTINUING TO DO THE WORK WE TOOK UPON OURSELVES MORE THAN A DECADE AGO

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

354. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, DECEMBER 20, 2021

72. 2020 Sunday C: President Donald J. Trump refutes Fake News claims that he is going to seize government and declare martial law. We know this cannot happen because the military already said, ‘they aren’t going to get involved in the election.’ Meanwhile, the president continues trying to push a stimulus bill for the American people as lawmakers continue haggling with one another over a COVID-19, aka Kung Flu, relief bill that neither Democrats nor Republicans seemingly can pass.

  33. 1943 Monday: Concerned that the Allies were going to establish a second front somewhere in Western Europe, the Fuhrer begins making it known that troops fighting in the East would have to rely on the manpower they already have.  Thus, any future reinforcements will begin being diverted to the West.  This change in plans had been coming for some time and in 1944, it would further debilitate Axis efforts in the USSR.
  34. 1944 Wednesday: During the Battle of the Bulge, German troops surround elements of the U.S. 101st Airborne Division at the Belgium crossroads town of Bastogne.   There, the resistance put up by the Americans against overwhelming odds would throw a monkey wrench into German plans in the drive to capture all important port city Antwerp.  Elsewhere, in Manhattan, New York, future drummer, percussionist, and backing vocalist with the horn-dominated band, Blood, Sweat & Tears- Bobby Colomby- is born on this date.  He would perform with BS&T from 1967-1977.

  44. 1977 Tuesday: The second day of the Great Kern County Dust Storm picks up speed as winds in certain places around Kern County hit 192 miles per hour, burying people and livestock.  Most businesses had no choice other than to shut down but especially restaurants as ventilation systems sucked in dust and dirt and belched it around the kitchen to the point that they could no longer function.  The storm would continue for two more days causing $40 million in damage.  Witnesses recall seeing telephone poles crossing one another along roadways, roofs torn off houses, doors blasted in, windows shattered, cars sandblasted, and people buried- some of them alive- alongside freeways in their cars.  The National Weather Service considered the ‘once in a lifetime’ weather event as one of the top 15 weather events of the century.

  52. 2002 Friday: Two weeks after launching a political firestorm due to some insensitive remarks, Senate Republican Leader Trent Lott resigned his seat.  If Democrats say insensitive things, seldom does anyone require them to leave but Republicans always jump ship.  Meanwhile, the nation’s 10 biggest brokerage firms agreed to pay $1.44 billion and fundamentally to change the way they do business to settle allegations that they had mislead investors by hyping certain companies flawed stocks.  Elsewhere, Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski enters the U.S. Senate on this date.
  53. 2004 Monday: In a sobering assessment of the Iraq War, President George W.

  56. 2007 Thursday: The U.S. House Intelligence Committee subpoenas the former head of the CIA’s National Clandestine Service Jose Rodriguez to bust his balls over the destruction of CIA interrogation tapes of jihadist thugs and murderers in CIA custody.  Ah, well, you can’t get everything you want.  Meanwhile, the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam, strikes again as a suicide attack targeting a Pakistani government official kills at least 50 people and wounds loads of others.  Elsewhere, four Palestinians get themselves killed as they attempt to attack Israel along its border with the Gaza Strip.

  58. 2009 Sunday: In Palm Springs, California, James Gurley, former lead guitarist with the San Francisco band, Big Brother, and the Holding Company[viii] suffers a heart attack at age 69 and dies.   Elsewhere, U.N. climate talks end in failure thanks to no binding deal among the world’s nations.  Instead, the U.S., Communist China, South Africa, Brazil, and India met behind closed doors and hammered out a NON-binding agreement known as the Copenhagen accord by which, the nations would ‘agree’ to doing better but are under NO obligation to do so.   Meanwhile, as the swine flu (another pandemic from communist China) runs amok, President Barack Obama gets his injection for the disease.
  59. 2010 Monday: The Obama administration seeks the ability to launch raids into Pakistan deeper than they have before.  We thought President Obama was opposed to widening wars or starting new ones.  My, my, my!  Meanwhile, there is a reason for this: a report says that over the course of 2010, 700 foreign troops have lost their lives in Afghanistan to foes who hide across the border in- you guessed it- Pakistan.
  60. 2011 Tuesday: In Egypt, thousands of women protest the Cairo police for having beaten numerous female protesters in Tahir Square in Cairo.  The top U.S. Army general in Iraq- Lloyd Austin- returns from the devastated country.   Meanwhile, the U.S. military rests its case in the courts martial of Private Bradley Manning, the young soldier who handed reams of classified intel over to Julian Assange and WikiLeaks.
  61. 2012 Thursday: People across the United States are supposed to undergo a moment of silence in remembrance of the victims of the Sandy Hook Massacre.   Meanwhile, Vice President Joe Biden and members of the Cabinet and law enforcement officials from across the country met to discuss what could be done about the out-of-control gun violence across the country.  As it would turn out, NOTHING.
  62. 2013 Friday: For the first time since 1927, the Bakersfield High School Drillers football team won the state championship by beating Loomis-Del Oro Golden Eagles in the CIF Division I State Bowl Championship in Carson City, California.  The final score was 56-26.

  64. 2015 Sunday: At the recent Democratic Presidential Primary Debate, Senator Bernie Sanders and former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton go to town on one another over the role of the U.S. military in the world.  Hillary a hawk and Bernie a Chi-Com-loving dove have different views.  Former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley was there, too, but no one gave a s**t.
  65. 2016 Tuesday: Outgoing President Barack Hussein Obama bans oil drilling in both the Arctic and along the Eastern Seaboard.  Meanwhile, the World Meteorological Association says that 2016 is going to be the hottest year on record driving young climate change activists to run amok in the streets, believing the planet is going to die.  Four years later, it’s still here and doing better, no thanks to the Chi-Com Bat Flu of 2020.   Elsewhere, the Trump transition team continues requesting information from the U.S. State Department regarding its donations to environmental groups.
  66. 2017 Wednesday: Democracy Now (and other liberal groups) are wailing that the Republican-controlled Congress passes a massive tax overhaul group that is going to benefit the nation’s richest Americans and corporations.  Again, the ‘richest Americans and corporations’ provide the most jobs.  Meanwhile, as rent-a-mobs protest in the streets, the very same congress passes a budget bill that won’t provide additional aid to DREAMERS.  Oh, boohoo.   
  67. 2018 Thursday: After ‘disagreements’ with President Donald J. Trump on military strategy- namely, keeping troops in West Africa, East Africa, Afghanistan, and Syria- U.S. Secretary of Defense James “Mad Dog” Mattis announces his resignation effective at the end of the year.  The president would send him packing sooner…
  68. 2019 Friday: Awaiting the House Democrats to walk the impeachment papers over to the U.S. Senate, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his fellow GOP senators plot the upcoming impeachment strategy.  Unable to really generate honest articles of impeachment against President Trump, the Democrats have cobbled together two laughable articles of impeachment which over the course of time would become known to everyone.  The Democrats in the Senate would DEMAND WITNESSES.  Folks, the Senate hears from NO witnesses as the Senate members are the jury and the party doing the impeachment presents its case, win, or lose.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump establishes the U.S. Space Force on this date to counter Chi-Com, Russian, and Iranian threats in the war domain of outer space.

  70. 2020 Sunday A: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Yellow Bat Flu- the -disease the Chi-Coms manufactured in their Wuhan biowarfare lab and their allies, the Democratic Party- used to throw the election to “Pro-China Joe” Biden, aka “Chi-Com Joe”:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 76,760,893 confirmed cases, +634,728, 1,692,151, confirmed deaths, +8,617, and 43,244,094 confirmed recoveries, +280,463 (last week, the number was much higher so some funny business is going on here, folks).  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 17,975,428 confirmed cases, up 346,135 from yesterday’s reporting, 320,595 confirmed deaths, UP 3,061, and 7,925,626 confirmed recoveries, UP 67,965.
  71. 2020 Sunday B: 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: 1,869,125 confirmed cases, 22,653 confirmed deaths (number readjusted DOWN from last week), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 20,257 confirmed cases, 282 confirmed deaths, and no longer any mention of confirmed recoveries at this point.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 226,551 confirmed cases, 3,169 confirmed deaths (down from a week ago), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Georgia- currently, they have 562,479 confirmed cases, 10,383 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo is living there: 374,760 confirmed cases, 3,099 confirmed deaths, and 348,106 confirmed recoveries.   Speaking of Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu received his Bat Flu vaccine today on live TV.  Elsewhere, although the world is contending with the Wuhan bat flu, economist Stephen Moore says ‘2021 should be very bright thanks to the Chi-Vi vaccine.’ Meanwhile, U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams says the country ‘should be normal by later spring or early summer.’  Finally, the Moderna vaccine is out on the road in the U.S. and people could be receiving their vaccinations tomorrow.  
  72. 2020 Sunday C:  President Donald J. Trump refutes Fake News claims that he is going to seize government and declare martial law.  We know this cannot happen because the military already said, ‘they aren’t going to get involved in the election.’   Meanwhile, the president continues trying to push a stimulus bill for the American people as lawmakers continue haggling with one another over a COVID-19, aka Kung Flu, relief bill that neither Democrats nor Republicans seemingly can pass.  We begin voting them out in 2022, 2024, 2026 and on and on and on.  Meanwhile, outgoing Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard- a leader of the people- is pushing for COVID-19 relief for small businesses.  Will anyone listen?
  73. 2020 Sunday D: The Save America Bus Tour with Senator Ted Cruz at the helm pulls into Cumming, Georgia, today.  Yesterday, it was in Savannah, as the battle to keep the U.S. Senate from the communist Democrats continues.  Meanwhile, as we continue learning more dirt on that scumbag, Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell and his ties to the Chi-Coms via to sleeping with an MSS agent for several years, information is beginning to come to light on another Democrat Congressman Adam Schiff.  A driving force in the fake impeachment of President Trump and his phone call with Volodymyr Zelensky, Ukraine’s president, we now learn that Schiff has deep ties to Burisma, the Ukrainian natural gas company.  Boris Pasternak of Burisma held fundraisers for Congressman Schiff as well as funneled money from George Soros’ left-wing ‘think tanks,’ Atlantic Council being one.  He also received cash from Blackrock and Franklin-Templeton Investments.  What a scumbag.
  74. 2020 Sunday E: The ‘religion of peace’ strikes again in Kabul, Afghanistan, as two car bombings kill nine people and wound another 20 citizens.  One must love Islam.  Meanwhile, U.S. troops are leaving Somalia for neighboring countries.  Elsewhere, the U.S. emplaces sanctions on Chi-Com companies involved in the phony elections in Venezuela.  Finally, in Great Britain, Prime Minister Boris Johnson is using the communist Chinese virus to cancel Christmas and more or less declares a severe lockdown of the British people all in the name of protecting people from the Wuhan Bat Flu.  Boris has gone crazy.  
  75. 2020 Sunday F: “Tiger King” Joe Exotic is seeking a pardon from President Trump.  Former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin, R, is urging a pardon for Julian Assange as are many for Edward Snowden.  Meanwhile, President Trump tweets that ‘John Bolton is the stupidest man alive.’  Many of us used to believe Mr. Bolton was a good man; we now know he is little more than a worthless POS who embodies the Military-Industrial Complex and endless, endless war…  
  76. 2020 Sunday: This is where we were at last year: even though it’s Sunday, the Chi-Coms and their allies in Canada, Iran, Russia, Venezuela, Cuba, North Korea, and in the Democratic Party here in the U.S. are up to no good.  Stick around to discover exactly what they are doing…
  77. 2021 Monday: Welcome to the end of the year at the AICPENDBLOG.COM!

Sunday, December 20, 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…


Monday, December 20, 2021:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We hope to advertise this book for historical purposes on this date. 

[ii] We promoted the music of the Association beginning on Wednesday, 25-September-2013 through Monday, 07-October-2013.  These guys were amazing, we hope you will check them out and consider adding them to your growing collection of albums and CDs. 

[iii] We look forward to sharing the music of KISS sometime in the next 10-15 years.  We hope you will still be with us when we do because YOU won’t want to miss them. 

[iv] We expect to do the music of Jethro Tull, Wild Turkey, Ian Anderson, and Paris sometime in the next 5-6 years.  We hope you will still be with us.

[v] We promoted the music of the James Gang beginning on Saturday, 11-August-2012 through Monday, 27-August-2012.  We did not do the solo discography of Joe Walsh at the time but when we arrive at the Eagles, we most certainly will.

[vi] We hope to share the music of the Eagles, Joe Walsh, Don Henley, Glenn Fray, and others, including Poco, sometime in the next decade.  Please remain with us.

[vii] This is typical of liberal leftwing judges as communists do not believe in God and always go after any mention of God or His ‘intelligent design,’ because communists do not want humankind to believe in anything greater than human beings.  We say, “BULLSHIT” to this, shame on the judge.  If leftists did not fear God as much as they do, they would remain silent.  You never see leftist judges go after Muslims.

[viii] We promoted the music of Big Brother and the Holding Company, beginning on Monday, 18-July-2011 through Tuesday, 26-July-2011.  At the time, we were not farsighted enough to offer the music of Janis Joplin but hope to do so at some point in the near future when we return to promoting the music of American rock bands.

WE THANK EVERYONE FOR JOINING US AT WORDPRESS.COM AND FOR AIDING US IN CONTINUING TO DO THE WORK WE TOOK UPON OURSELVES MORE THAN A DECADE AGO

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

  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.

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.

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.

  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!

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.

  68. 2019 Tuesday: The run-up to the impeachment vote of President Donald J. Trump continues as Congressman Jaime Raskin, D-MD, sitting in for House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-NY, and ranking member, Congressman Doug Collins, R-SC, appear before the House Rules Committee to hammer out the terms under which the impeachment trial will occur in the U.S. Senate.  Meanwhile, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, blasts Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY, over his refusal to indulge the Democrat’s desire to call more witnesses noting that the Constitution says nothing about the Senate doing the work of the House.  The Senate serves as the jury in impeachment proceedings and nothing more.  F**k off, Chuck.
  69. 2020 Thursday: The U.S. government confirms the recent hacking of various departments.  Most believe it’s either Russia or communist China, possibly Iran.  Meanwhile, the House GOP urge President Donald J.

Milley meets with the Taliban to discuss the ongoing peace talks in Afghanistan.  Next, the Iranian government says they have ‘no doubts’ that Pro-China Joe Biden will not immediately rejoin the JCPOA.  Meanwhile, Vladimir Putin says the U.S. should extend the New Start Arms Control Treaty.  Putin also says he’s up in the air as to whether he will seek another term (yeah, right) in 2024. 
  71. 2020 Thursday B: One American News Network (OAN) reported late yesterday evening on the ties Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY, aka “Cocaine Mitch,” he has to communist China.  His wife, Elaine Chao, is the daughter of a Chi-Com shipping magnate and that the Chi-Coms gave “Cocaine Mitch” $1 million to help in his re-election campaign.  He and his wife apparently are extremely wealthy thanks to cultivation and investment by the Chi-Coms.  Although we have heard these rumors before, we now believe them to be the truth thanks to his pushing aside of President Donald J. Trump from almost after the 2020 Presidential Election.  Shame on you, Senator McConnell, shame on you.
  72. 2020 Thursday C: A recent Emerson poll reports that Senator Kelly Loeffler holds a 3-point lead over far-left, pro-Nation of Islam bigot the ‘Reverend’ Raphael Warnock in their Georgia run-off Senate race while her fellow Senator David Perdue is in a dead heat with pajama boy, Jon Ossoff.   Elsewhere, Google and parent company Alphabet are hit with their third anti-trust lawsuit over their abuse of market power.  Texas and nine other states are going after the corrupt entity, and we hope that they end up being broken up along with Facebook and Twitter.   Meanwhile, we hear that following Vice President Mike Pence holds the final confirmation count on January 6 in the U.S. Senate, he will then leave on an overseas trip. 
  73. 2020 Thursday D: Atlantic City is going to auction off the right to implode the former Trump Casino in that city.  Meanwhile, the Chinese Virus pandemic has caused 8 million Americans to fall into poverty over the last six months.  Elsewhere, due to redistricting beginning next year, political observers predict the GOP will recapture the House of Representatives in 2022.  That is, unless the Democrats use their fraudulent vote corruption and theft strategy, which many astute political observers such as we believe will cause the GOP NEVER to win another election ever.  Speaking of Democratic corruption, President Trump says thousands of dead people voted across Nevada in last month’s presidential election.  Might as well have added the illegal aliens, the felons, the incarcerated, the underage, the stupid, the ignorant, and the space aliens, too.
  74. 2020 Thursday E: Astronomers say they have detected radio transmissions from an exoplanet.  So far, astronomers have discovered more than 4,500 exoplanets orbiting other stars, but this is the first time they have discovered radio signals- or so they believe- coming from one of these planets.  Astronomers have reported the signals come from the Tau Boötes system, one that contains a binary star and an exoplanet.  They believe the emissions come from the planet itself.  The system if 51 light years from earth with a light year equaling approximately 6 trillion miles.  Quite a ways away, folks.
  75. 2020 Thursday F: President Donald J. Trump withholds $200 million in Medicaid money from California.   HHS Secretary Alex Azar will withhold the money over the state’s demand that insurers provide abortion coverage at taxpayers’ expense.   Meanwhile, the John Roberts’ U.S. Supreme Court rejects a Kentucky religious school’s desire to reopen despite the Chi-Vi lockdown.  Elsewhere, Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announces a statewide ballot audit. Next, California Democratic Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell keeps his lips zipped over his alleged lengthy ongoing affair with a Chi-Com MSS agent.   Finally, a Homeland Security Department watchdog blasts ICE for putting illegal aliens in solitary confinement and abusing them mentally.  Oh, boohoo, mojados, don’t come.  
  76. 2020 Thursday G: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Yellow Fever, Chi-Com Virus, the Wuhan Horseshoe Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 74,862,082 confirmed cases, +774,992, 1,660,032, confirmed deaths, +33,345, and 42,283,258 (readjustment lower from the number a week ago) confirmed recoveries, +389,485 (same number as reported a week ago).  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 17,203,481 confirmed cases, UP 207,284 from yesterday’s reporting, 312,489 confirmed deaths, UP 2,784, and 7,777,776 confirmed recoveries, UP 59,633.  Here are the stats for Israel now that Mo is living there: 367,975 confirmed cases, 3,050 confirmed deaths, and 342,812 confirmed recoveries.
  77. 2020 Thursday H: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous, anti-communist American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 1,740,585 confirmed cases, 21,944 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 19,954 confirmed cases, 280 confirmed deaths, and as of last week, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 215,308 confirmed cases, 3,137 (dropped this number from last week’s tally) confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Illinois- currently, they have 880,975 confirmed cases, 15,987 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor J.

  56. 2010 Thursday: The Obama administration is fighting to push a Federal Anti-Gun Trafficking Ban through Congress but the National Rifle Association- NRA- is fighting tooth and nail to stop it.   Meanwhile, Veterans for Peace, an anti-war veterans’ group, is holding a protest outside the White House today.  President Barack Hussein Obama did, after all, promise he would ‘end wars.’

  63. 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.
  64. 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.
  65. 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.   
  66. 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.
  67. 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.
  68. 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.
  69. 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. 
  70. 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.
  71. 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.
  72. 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.
  73. 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.  The Amistad Project is the source of the report on Zuckerberg.  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.
  74. 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.
  75. 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 is 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.’
  76. 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.
  77. 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.
  78. 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.
  79. 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. 
  80. 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.’
  81. 2020 Wednesday O:  Friends, this is where we were at one year ago today: 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…         
  82. 2021 Thursday: Everyone knows the drill…stick around to discover the truth along with all of us- you will be glad you did.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Always working away, Fairport Convention knocked out their next studio album- “The Wood and the Wire”- on November 15, 1999.  Once again, the band features a revamped lineup of sorts: Simon Nichol (guitars, vocals, dulcimers, and piano), Ric Sanders (fiddle), Dave Pegg (bass, mandolins, guitars, and vocals), Chris Leslie (violins, multiple stringed instruments, and vocals), and Gerry Conway (drums and percussion).  No matter who exactly is in the lineup, the band always delivers the goods, and this album demonstrates it.  We hope you will investigate this album to your and if you find it as wonderful as we do, well, seek it out wherever you shop for the best in rock music.  You will enjoy it.

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

ENDNOTES:

[i] We promoted the music of Big Brother and the Holding Company, beginning on Monday, 18-July-2011 through Tuesday, 26-July-2011.  At the time, we were not farsighted enough to offer the music of Janis Joplin but hope to do so at some point in the near future when we return to promoting the music of American rock bands.

[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. 

[iii] We look forward to sharing the music of this famed, “Little Ol’ Band from Texas,” ZZ Top sometime in the next decade. 

WE THANK EVERYONE FOR JOINING US AT WORDPRESS.COM AND FOR AIDING US IN CONTINUING TO DO THE WORK WE TOOK UPON OURSELVES MORE THAN A DECADE AGO

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!
