352. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, DECEMBER 18, 2021

69. 2020 Friday A: After we learn that Chief Justice John Roberts of the U.S. Supreme Court did NOT take the multi-state lawsuit headed by Texas regarding election fraud and corruption because he was AFRAID of mob violence if he did, he throws President Trump a bone by upholding the administration’s edict NOT to include illegal aliens in the 2020 Census as we shouldn’t. Illegals are NOT American citizens and have no right to anything in this country other than a quick deportation.

Trump is impeached on two charges: Abuse of Power and Obstruction of Congress.  The impeachment trial will commence in the U.S. Senate.  On the first charge, lawmakers voted 230 to 197 while on the second charge, they voted 229 to 198.   Aged and increasingly senile House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi says she ‘will hold the articles back from the U.S. Senate until she is content that the impeachment trial will be fair.’  Say the f**k what?  What you did in the House is a sham, Madam Mumbles.   Meanwhile, at a rally in Battle Creek, Michigan, President Donald J.

  70. 2020 Friday B: In Seattle, barricades are erected around the so-called ‘protest zone.’  Go in there and clean these maggots out.  Next, Senator Rand Paul urges President Donald J.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Record companies being what they are once again set out to make some money via remastering the works of Richard and Linda Thompson.  The resulting effort was “The Best of Richard and Linda Thompson: The Island Record Years” which is a nice repackaging of earlier works all nicely remastered and polished for new generations of fans.  While some loves of Richard Thompson may choose to overlook these years, they were wonderful what with her softer elements combined with his harder rock efforts.  We love the album and believe that all diehard fans as well as loads of new ones will, too.  Please, seek it out and consider adding it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

[i] Sometime within the next decade, we hope to present the music of the Classical composers as without them, we would live in a barbarous world where Islamist scum murder innocent people at will.  Music is what sets civilized people apart from the savages.

[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] 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.

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

[v] One of the greatest saxophonists of his time, he performed with numerous bands but primarily the Rolling Stones.

[vi] We promoted the music of this venerable British rock band as part of a series of interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This included the Small Faces, Faces, Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood, Jeff Beck, Steve Marriott, Humble Pie, and other interconnected parts.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[vii] We are not sure when we will present the music of the Cars but if you are still with us when we celebrate our second decade of activity, you may see them then so please, stay with us.  We thank you.

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

[ix] We are surprised that no one ever assassinated this worthless POS.  However, he died of gut cancer because instead of coming to the United States or Spain for treatment, he went to Cuba, a place Democrats say has ‘the best health care system in the world’ and which they want to replicate here in the United States with “Medicare for All,” which means “NOT Medicare at All” but a crap system.

  61. 2020 Thursday: The Senate GOP warned President-Elect “Pro-China Joe” Biden not to send whack-job leftists to Capitol Hill for Cabinet positions. Currently, he has the Obama-Biden “B-Team” up for various positions including Neera Tanden, an ultra-leftist, bigoted racist, for his OMB director.  She, by the way, has sought to cover her tracks on social media by deleting more than 1,000 tweets.  Additionally, David Cohen is Biden’s pick to be the next director of the CIA.  Meanwhile, here is the humorous note of the day: CNN calls out Democratic lawmakers for being hypocrites when it comes to observing their own harsh Chi-Vi restrictions.  Nearly every Democrat of note has been caught going about their normal lives while everyone has to remain indoors trembling in fear.

  62. 2020 Thursday A: President Donald J. Trump is NOT ruling out firing Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr who seems to be MIA when it comes to doing anything about the rampant voter fraud we have observed from one end of the country in key battleground states such as Nevada, Georgia, Wisconsin, Michigan, North Carolina, and Arizona. Elsewhere, U.S. Navy Secretary Kenneth Braithwaite told the Senate Armed Services Committee that Vladimir Putin’s Russia has ‘re-militarized the Arctic.’  Not good.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Census Bureau has uncovered data glitches that are pushing back the release of its findings until sometime in February 2021.  It’s all about the illegal aliens.   Finally, DNI John Ratcliffe implores President-Elect Joe Biden NOT to politicize America’s intelligence-gathering agencies and to admit openly that communist China is the world’s number one threat.  
  63. 2020 Thursday B: The United Nations says the Chi-Com Bat Virus has pushed 32 million people around the world into EXTREME POVERTY. Meanwhile, Dr. Tony Fauci is briefing President-Elect “Pro-China Joe” Biden on the Kung Flu.  In addition to this, three former presidents announce they will take the vaccine on live TV.  Speaking of the infamous Chi-Com Virus, here are today’s numbers:

  65. 2020 Thursday D: 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: 1,271,908 confirmed cases, 19,440 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 18,342 confirmed cases, 244 confirmed deaths, and as of last week, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 177,929 confirmed cases, 2,979 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: South Dakota- currently, they have 82,203 confirmed cases, 1,033 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, Vice President Mike Pence says the U.S. is ‘days away from the distribution of a vaccine for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.’  Excellent, ONLY the Trump-Pence administration could have accomplished something as monumental as this.
  66. 2020 Wednesday E: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 29,969.52, UP 85.73 points (+0.29%).

  67. 2020 Wednesday F: Here is our matchup for tonight’s Thursday Night Football game: (1) New Orleans Saints, 21 (10-2) @ Atlanta Falcons, 16 (4-8) Thursday Night 5:20 P.M. We are going with the Falcons- come on boys- so much for our prediction, what the hell has happened to the Falcons?
  68. 2020 Thursday G: President Donald J. Trump awards the Congressional Medal of Freedom to former Notre Dame football coach Lou Holtz. Great coach of a legendary team that never seemed to lose many games back in the 1980s.  Speaking of President Trump, he is planning to be in Georgia on Saturday campaigning for Senators David Purdue and Kelly Loeffler.  Elsewhere, federal law enforcement raid a house in Houston, Texas, in which, human traffickers are holding numerous illegal aliens naked, dirty, and afraid in cages.  String the traffickers up!
  69. 2020 Thursday H: We encourage everyone to stick around to uncover what scurrilous shenanigans the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party underlings are up to today- you know you are as curious as are we… we must hold the Chi-Coms, the Canadians, the Iranians, and the flipping Russians accountable for what they have done to our country, Canadians first.  Canada has declared WAR on us.  Send us your Dominion bosses so we can grill the living f**k out of them.

[vi] 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.

[vii] The sad thing about this story is that the NYPD was only acting on orders from City Hall that wanted to bush illicit street merchants such as Mr. Garner who were not paying their fair share to the city in taxes.  Mr. Garner gave us the phrase, “I can’t breathe!”  Overweight and fighting the cops, he died in the struggle.

[viii] Senator Harris entered the race on January 21, 2019, doing so on the 90th anniversary of the birth of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  Prior to her (in order) the following Democrats dropped out: (1) Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-CA; (2) Gov. John Hickenlooper, D-CO; (3) Gov. Jay Inslee, D-WA; (4) Rep. Seth Moulton, D-Mass.; (5) Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-NY; (6) Mayor Bill Di Blasio, D-NY; (7) Rep. Tim Ryan, D-OH; (8) Former Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, D-TX; and (9) Mayor Wayne Messam, D-FL.

FFF. 2020 Friday: Thanks to the persecution of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn by out-of-control leftist Judge Emmet G. Sullivan, we have learned that the main sub-source for the so-called (Christopher) Steele Dossier is Ukrainian born Igor “Iggy” Danchenko, a foreign national investigated by the FBI from 2009 to 2011. Apparently, he was ‘flipped’ by the Obama administration and would become a major player in the fabrication of the bogus dossier used by the Hillary 2016 presidential campaign and Democrats to destroy then-candidate and now-president Donald J. Trump.

  58. 2020 Friday: Thanks to the persecution of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn by out-of-control leftist Judge Emmet G. Sullivan, we have learned that the main sub-source for the so-called (Christopher) Steele Dossier is Ukrainian born Igor “Iggy” Danchenko, a foreign national investigated by the FBI from 2009 to 2011.  Apparently, he was ‘flipped’ by the Obama administration and would become a major player in the fabrication of the bogus dossier used by the Hillary 2016 presidential campaign and Democrats to destroy then-candidate and now-president Donald J. Trump.   We also have learned- thanks again to Judge Sullivan- that several FBI agents involved in SPYING on Trump and his campaign, White House, and cabinet officials understood the investigation to be extremely flawed and took out personal liability insurance to protect them when the proverbial s**t hit the fan.  The longer Democrat players fail to step forward and begin ‘fessing up,’ the worse we hope things will be for them when the American people know everything.  Meanwhile, the president continues to call what the Democrats have tried to do to him a ‘coup’ which is how a majority of Americans see it.  He also questions ‘WHY the wife of the Moscow, Russia, mayor gave Hunter Biden $3.5 million a fleeting time ago.’  What is up with Hunter?[viii]
  59. 2020 Friday A: In Louisville, Kentucky, this morning- following a night of rioting by Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and other human scum- well-known attorney and race-baiter Benjamin Crump does his best to stir up still more violence and to help him do this, he has brought Jacob Blake Sr., father of the thug shot and crippled in Kenosha, Wisconsin, to the smoldering city.  Mr. Crump demands ALL grand jury information be made available to the public, including the names of the grand jurors and witnesses.  He wants to know if Breonna Taylor’s boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, testified at the proceedings.  Why don’t you ask him, sir?   A recent Fox News Channel poll shows that 44-percent of the American people disapprove of the mob violence across the nation, up from the thirties a month or two ago.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump signs an executive order that will send $500 billion to black communities across the country.  The order also calls Antifa and the Ku Klux Klan as terrorist groups.
  60. 2020 Friday B: President Trump is on the campaign trail today with stops in Florida where he attended a roundtable for Latinos’ event and says he ‘has done more for Latinos than any other president’ which is true.  He plans to hold a rally in Virginia with the Governor Ralph Northam and his wife NOW test positive for the Wuhan Xi Jinping Chinese Bat Flu Virus leading the state government scrambling for ways to prevent the campaign rally.  We know it will become a ‘protest’ which will legitimize the event and stifle the critics.  Meanwhile, popular Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signs an order lifting all remaining COVID-19 restrictions.  Florida is now open for business once more.  Elsewhere, former Congressman Ron Paul, father of Senator Rand Paul, entered a hospital in Texas for precautionary reasons.  We hope you are okay.
  61. 2020 Friday C: PAC 12 announces it will play an abbreviated schedule of seven games beginning in November.  Congratulations for coming back!  All major conferences will now be playing or are playing.   President Trump concluded an event- a ‘protest’ if you will- in Georgia and now is on the way to Virginia where he will conduct another ‘protest’ in lieu of being able to hold a political rally.  Elsewhere, Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi when asked if she is going to impeach President Trump again, she nixed that idea what with the election looming in the near future.  She does, however, threaten that the House is going to pass a bill that will limit HOW many SCOTUS nominees a president can nominate and how long they can serve once confirmed.  Since the Democrats have been threatening to stack the courts, we think the president should nominate another seven- instead of one- and get them jump-started in what they now swear to do should “Pro-China Joe” Biden win on November 3.
  62. 2020 Friday D: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 32,356,829 confirmed cases, +317,687, 984,590, confirmed deaths, +5,202, and 22,278,696 confirmed recoveries, +254,052.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 7,099,967 confirmed cases, up 53,170 from yesterday’s reporting, 206,592 confirmed deaths, UP 978, and 3,817,235 confirmed recoveries, UP 16,490.  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: 801,845 confirmed cases, 15,398 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 11,908 confirmed cases, 124 confirmed deaths, and 5,265 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 88,607 confirmed cases, 2,175 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 215,273 confirmed cases, 1,405 confirmed deaths, and 152,837 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other state: Texas- currently, they have 758,646 confirmed cases, 15,595 confirmed deaths, and 642,149 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Greg Abbott, for sharing ALL the numbers.
  63. 2020 Friday E: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 27,173.96, UP 358.32 points (+1.34%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  10,913.56, UP 241.30 points (+2.26%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,298.46, UP 51.87 points (+1.60%).  Price of GOLD: $1,864.30 per troy oz., -2.00 (-0.11%). Here is the price of SILVER: $22.98 per troy oz., -0.108 (-0.47%).  Price of PLATINUM: $841.60 per troy oz., -0.40 (-0.05%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,222.20 per troy oz., -4.70 (-0.21%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $2.98 per #, +0.007 (+0.24%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $40.04, -0.21 (-0.52%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.82 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.86 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.80 Afghan afghani.
  64. 2021 Saturday: NO one knows what the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party flunkies are up to on any given day so please stick around and we’ll find out together.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

If you wait long enough, the best will end up on video or DVD:’ “Nothing is Easy- Live at the Isle of Wight 1970” came out on October 04, 2005, and featured a phenomenal concert captured on disc and on video although that is not a part of this release.  Tull appeared on the final night of the famed music festival, sandwiched between the Moody Blues and the legendary Jimi Hendrix.  The band features the lineup of Ian Anderson (guitars, flutes, and vocals), Martin Barre (guitars), Glenn Cornick (bass, harmonicas, and vocals), Clive Bunker (drums and percussion), and John Evan (keyboards).  This is a rollicking show if ever one existed which is why there is NO question as to why one should NOT add this to their growing collection of CDs and vinyl.  We hope you seek this one out and add it to your collection so you can enjoy it day after day after day.  We believe that you will be glad you did.

TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 2020

Saturday, September 25, 2021:

ENDNOTES:


[i] We began promoting the music of Spirit and of Randy California beginning on Monday, 18-June-2012 through Friday, 10-August-2012.  Please seek them out and consider adding their music to your collection.

[ii] Not sure when we will promote the music of the Average White Band but hope to do it at some point within the next 25 years.  Stick with us as you will be among the first to know.

[iii] We began promoting the music of this famed Los Angeles, California, rock band on Wednesday, 24-October-2012 through Friday, 16-November-2012.  Please seek out the music of this awesome band.  Love was among the best of the 1960s

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

[v] We shared the music of Deep Purple, Ian Gillan, Captain Beyond, Elf, and Rainbow beginning on Tuesday, 20-March-2018 and concluded this massive offering on Sunday, 14-October-2018.  Please seek out the music by all of these phenomenal bands.  All are fabulous.

[vi] 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.

[vii] We began offering music by the supergroup Cream on Friday, 17-January-2014 through Monday, 03-February-2014.  Please seek out their albums by visiting posts on those corresponding dates.  You will be glad you did.  Sadly, at the time, we also should have presented the solo catalogs of Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce, and Ginger Baker.  We hope to do so at some point within the next decade or so.

[viii] The longer Democrats continue trying to shovel dirt over this corpse, the more destructive it’s going to be for them.  We have never prosecuted a president once he has left office but if people like the communist John Brennan, the hack James Clapper, and the POS fired FBI Director James Comey fail to come clean, the worse it’s going to be for Barack Hussein Obama and Joe Biden- and many, many more.  Let’s hold their feet to the fire and begin sending people to prison for this attempted coup.  That also means Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi and Chuckie Boy Schumer.  Send them to prison and save the nation!

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!

181. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, JUNE 30, 2021

Z. 1941 Monday: During the Nazi drive into the Soviet Union, a pro-Nazi group declares the independence of the Ukraine. As Axis troops entered various towns and cities, they were astounded to see cheering citizens throwing flowers upon them. They were finally free from the hell imposed on them by Soviet thug Josef Stalin. Had the Germans played this differently, the world might be a completely different place.

  62.   2019 Sunday: On this date, President Donald J. Trump met with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un along the DMZ separating the two Koreas from one another.  President Trump became the first sitting U.S. president to walk across the dividing line onto North Korean soil and then the two crossed into South Korea where they held an impromptu meeting for nearly three hours.  Jealous Democrats and fake news promoters called the whole thing a ‘photo op’ when it might truly lead to peace and destroy Democratic Party 2020 hopes.   Meanwhile, in Khartoum, the capital of the Sudan, protests against continued military rule leads to violence what with seven killed and 181 injured.

Trump.
  65. 2020 Tuesday B: Here are today’s stock market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 25,812.88, UP 217.08 points 0.85%), NASDAQ: 10,058.76, UP 184.61 points (1.87%), and the S&P 500: 3,100.29, UP 47.05 points (1.54%).
  66. 2021 Wednesday:  Friends, please stick around but note, we may be toning things down a bit what with increased pressure from the outside.  Joe Biden is GREAT, communist China WONDERFUL, illegal aliens DELIGHTFUL.  Nancy Pelosi is a GENIUS, AOC a MENSA graduate, and BIG GOVERNMENT preferable to freedom and liberty.  Yes, we are using Newspeak Dictionary 2021.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Jethro Tull released their next ‘best of’ package on January 11, 1993, just in time for the wintertime blues, “Nightcap- the Unreleased Masters 1973-1991.”  This effort contains amazing music on two big discs most of them from albums but also some as singles or from EPs.  If you have yet to introduce the music of this seminal British rock band to your ears, well, this is a glorious way in which one can right that incredibly lethargic wrong.  We hope you will seek this album out, give it a good listen, and then add it to your daily listening pleasure.  We think you will be glad you did.

ENDNOTES:


[i] We are not sure when we will begin offering albums by the Little River Band as that could be another 5-10 years from now but one day, we most surely will because they are one of the world’s greatest bands.  Seeing them live in the 1970s was mind-altering because it was so damned amazing.

[ii] We hope to offer the music of Dire Straits sometime in 2021-2022.  Please stay tuned.

[iii] Democrats in 2020 now want to lower the voting age to 16-year-olds as well as to felons, illegal aliens, and others who should not be able to vote.  If anything, voting age should be raised to 35 because most Americans do not begin undergoing the maturation process as they did 50 or more years ago.  What we are saying is that young people are little more than a bunch of sissies who should never be able to vote.  Let us restore it as the Constitution presented it that people of property should be the only ones able to vote.  You must have a stake in the country to do what’s right for her.

[iv] It’s no wonder as to WHY Jimmy Carter served but one term as president.  The guy was a whoosie.

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

Oh, those Iranians are such pranksters, showing a video in which the IRG is blowing up the U.S. Capitol, funny, funny, funny…how about we nuke Tehran off the face of the globe…just kidding…

Meanwhile, Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, blasts the FAKE NEWS MEDIA for labeling the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in the Mount Rushmore State in the summer a ‘super-spreader event.’ That’s the FAKE NEWS MEDIA, always causing trouble via disinformation and misinformation. F**k them.

  7. 2021 Wednesday F: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE- Congressman Bill Johnson, R-OH 6th congressional district, told Newsmax TV that the Dems are paying a ransom to Northern Triangle countries to keep their illegal aliens in their country.   Next, Tony Shaffer, president of the London Center for Policy Research and former President Donald J. Trump 2020 national security adviser says that socialism and the drug wars are driving people to flee Central America and come to the U.S.   Here’s a laugh- the Vermont state senate has passed a bill that will permit ILLEGAL ALIENS the right to vote in their state.  Wow.  Yet, they don’t want Americans to believe in the REPLACEMENT THEORY…
  8. 2021 Wednesday G: BIDEN REGIME NEWS I- Apparently, Joe Biden is eyeing clemencies early on in his career.  We are curious as to whom these people might be.    Next, the Biden regime is seeking a ‘special master’ to look into the seized electronic devices taken from Rudy Giuliani and Victoria Toensing.   Next, Joe Biden says he is ‘open’ to compromise on his corporate tax hike.  We’ll see.  Moving on, the White House is considering subsidies for nuclear power plants to help them meet climate targets.  Speaking of ‘climate warriors,’ Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (CPUSA-NY 14th congressional district), aka “The Fly,” aka “Baby Evita,” aka Sandy Cortez and Senator Ed Markey, CPUSA-MA, are pushing a $10 billion, 1.5-million-strong (of little Marxists) Civilian Climate Corps because the planet has a fever.  F**k these people.
  9. 2021 Wednesday H: COVID-19 UPDATES AND ADDITIONAL INFORMATION- We learn today that thanks to the Chi-Vi, 20 million more Americans (many of them probably illegal aliens) were beset by food crises last year which means Joe Biden will be giving taxpayer dollars to illegals.  Can’t have them go hungry now can we?   Elsewhere, the founder of BionTech prophesizes that the Chi-Vi pandemic will continue until sometime in mid-2022, a date we are sure the Democrats hope will extend to the 2022 Mid-Term Elections so they can try to steal those elections, too.   In other COVID-19 news, over half of the people in the world’s democracies feel that governments repressed freedoms and liberties.  Meanwhile, Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, blasts the FAKE NEWS MEDIA for labeling the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in the Mount Rushmore State in the summer a ‘super-spreader event.’  That’s the FAKE NEWS MEDIA, always causing trouble via disinformation and misinformation.  F**k them.  Finally, the U.S. Patent Office- at the direction of Joe Biden- is considering waiving patent rights on the vaccines to fight the Chi-Vi so everyone can jump into mass-producing this crap.   (Interesting tidbit- a U.S. federal court has overturned the moratorium on evictions.  Good.  Someone has to help landlords).
  10. 2021 Wednesday I: SOCIAL MEDIA NEWS AND BIG TECH NEWS- Facebook votes to keep President Donald J. Trump banned but orders another ‘review’ down the road.   Once this news came out, President Trump blasted Facebook, Twitter, and Google as a ‘total disgrace’ (which they truly are).  Meanwhile, we learn that Iowa officials coordinated with BIG TECH to censor all posts related to the 2020 Presidential Election- so says Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch.
  11. 2021 Wednesday J: POLITICAL NEWS I- Each day that passes, it appears more and more likely that Congresswoman Liz Cheney[xiii], RINO-WY, is going to be toast as more and more Republicans are turning on the RINOs plaguing the GOP.[xiv]  We hope she is out ASAP.  Meanwhile, Jared Kushner forms the Abraham Accord Institute with which to continue pushing for peace around the world.   Next, the POS head of the Democratic Party in Lamar County, Texas, who called Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, an “Oreo,” offered his resignation earlier in the day but then Democrats in his county would not accept it.  Gary O’Connor is such a loveable guy; his fellow Dems don’t want to see the scumbag go.  Well, we do.   
  12. 2021 Wednesday K: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS I- the president of El Salvador has taken over the country’s supreme court (look for Joe Biden to do something similar in the U.S.).  Elsewhere, violence breaks out in Columbia over the government raising taxes on its people.  The protesters, stupidly enough, are demanding socialism.   Next, those good-humored mullahs in Iran released a truly hilarious video in which it showed their military forces blowing up the U.S. Capitol Building.  Good.  We should blow their seat of government off the flipping map.  Now.  Elsewhere, former U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates security assistance to Afghanistan be continued even as U.S. forces pull out of that hellish country.  Yes.  We must.  Otherwise, we will be fighting them here in the streets of the U.S.  Hell, they are already here coming across the southern border.  Thank you, Joe, thank you.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is in London meeting with the G7 leaders.
  13. 2021 Wednesday L: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I- After a report of one child’s death and numerous injuries, Peloton is recalling its treadmills.  Next, following the resignation of a top attorney, Coca-Cola pauses its controversial diversity plan.  Ah, the pause that refreshes.   Meanwhile, the state of Texas stops a Chi-Com energy company from purchasing Lone Star State land next to a military base.  Wow.  Thank you.   Elsewhere, LeBron “King of Fecal Matter” James apologizes for having started the wrong conversation about the police officer who was forced by the actions of Ma’ Khia Bryant to take her life before she stabbed another girl to death.  (Note- LeBron is little more than a BIG IDIOT over-amped on steroids and social media-likes.  Dumb ass).  Speaking of Black Lives Matter, a New Jersey police officer was fired for calling BLM ‘terrorists.’  They are TERRORISTS.  We have no problem calling spades ‘spades.’
  14. 2021 Wednesday M: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II- Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Gov, aka the Gropin’ Gov, says that ‘Broadway will be open 100-percent by September.’  Uh, okay, trying to save your job, are we?  Next, Atlanta is ordered by the courts to reinstate a police officer they terminated who shot and killed Rayshard Brooks last year.  If you recall, Mr. Brooks was cooperating with cops after falling asleep in a drive-through lane at a fast food restaurant and then began to fight.  Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms made sure Officer Garrett Rolfe was canned so she could maintain her bona fides with the BLM movement.  Glad to see you back, officer.  Moving on, a new law being considered could upend the firearms industry.   Laugh of the day, some POS New York City gunman got himself arrested after police read his social media posts.  Next, Sid Miller, Agriculture commissioner for Texas says that IF farmers are being discriminated against by Joe Biden, join our class action lawsuit.  Finally, Governor Ron DeSantis signs a new budget that will bestow $1,000 bonuses on law enforcement officers and first-responders.  
  15. 2021 Wednesday N: CALIFORNIA LOTTERY RESULTS / SUPER LOTTO AND POWERBALL DRAWS– First, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #1656 with a $45 million jackpot on the line: 06, 11, 17, 27, 39, and Mega 19.   Out of 119,647 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FIVE numbers but NO MEGA for a prize of $10.335 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at (1) Lanes Market in Dorris, CA 90263; (2) Lucky Zone Lottery and Cigarettes in Los Angeles, CA 90014; (3) Chevron in El Monte, CA 91731; and (4) Adobe Beverage and Deli in Petaluma, CA 94954.   Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #843: 16, 23, 28, 40, 63, and Powerball 01.  Out of 58,518 winning tickets, the highest winners were 35 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $481 apiece.  Good for them!

Trump slams the FBI, the Democrats, and impeachment.
  64. 2020 Friday:  U.S. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross confirms that mega-Chi-Com chipmaker SMIC along with other communist Chinese companies are on the blacklist due to them being part of the communist hierarchy and for using their products to spy on their customers.   Next, the Pentagon halts defense briefings for the so-called ‘president-elect,’ “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his consort Senator Kamala Harris, D-CA, because they’re big proponents of the Chi-Coms and because son, Hunter Biden, is in deep with Beijing.   Meanwhile, Vice President Mike Pence celebrates the first anniversary of the U.S. Space Force and says that ‘from now on, members of the U.S. Space Force will be referred to as ‘Guardians’ and will join the ranks of soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines.  Congratulations!
  65. 2020 Friday A: After we learn that Chief Justice John Roberts of the U.S. Supreme Court did NOT take the multi-state lawsuit headed by Texas regarding election fraud and corruption because he was AFRAID of mob violence if he did, he throws President Trump a bone by upholding the administration’s edict NOT to include illegal aliens in the 2020 Census as we shouldn’t.  Illegals are NOT American citizens and have no right to anything in this country other than a quick deportation.
  66. 2020 Friday B: In Seattle, barricades are erected around the so-called ‘protest zone.’  Go in there and clean these maggots out.  Next, Senator Rand Paul urges President Donald J. Trump to pardon both Edward Snowden and Julian Assange as he should.  They are patriots, not traitors.  Elsewhere, the New York Times retracts the ‘hit broadcast’ by the so-called ISIS executioner when they learn he’s a phony and a bum.  Go figure.  Meanwhile, disgruntled loser Stacey Abrams of Georgia says she has 76 thousand new voters to vote in the January U.S. Senate run-off races.  We hear the GOP has 80,000.  Beat both Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock.
  67. 2020 Friday C: New text messages coming to light reveal that James Comey- fired FBI director- and his boss, President Barack Hussein Obama’s spying on Donald Trump started far earlier than previously reported, going back to 2015.  Meanwhile, former national security adviser Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, U.S. Army Ret., says that ‘President Trump has options to secure the 2020 Presidential Election.’  He should use those options NOW.  Elsewhere, outrage continues growing over WHY California Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell, Democrat, has not been driven from office seeing as how he was banging a Chi-Com sugar pie named Fang-Fang, aka Christine Fang, most likely passing sensitive information onto his handlers in Beijing.  Swalwell should be in the same prison as Richard Hanssen condemned to life in prison for being an agent of a foreign, hostile power.
  68. 2020 Friday D: Speaking of the Chi-Coms, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 75,179,482 confirmed cases, +654,493, 1,667,124, confirmed deaths, +9,418, and 42,512,618 confirmed recoveries (interestingly down from a week ago), +318,734.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 17,401,776 confirmed cases, up 255,944 from yesterday’s reporting, 313,797 confirmed deaths, UP 1,711, and 7,777,776 confirmed recoveries, UP 12,256.  Speaking of the Xi Jinping Chi-Com flu, Vice President Mike Pence and Second Lady Karen Pence received vaccinations for the Yellow Fever 2020 today.  Former Beatle Paul McCartney says he will get vaccinated.  Meanwhile, the FDA is working to get the Moderna vaccine into use while a poll reports that 71-percent of Democrats and 41-percent of Republicans must get the Wuhan Virus vaccine if one wants to return to work.
  69. 2020 Friday E: 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: 1,783,360 confirmed cases, 22,221 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 19,954 confirmed cases, 280 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 220,816 confirmed cases, 3,170 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: New York where they have a moron for a governor: currently, they have 828,166 confirmed cases, 35,647 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 367,975 confirmed cases, 3,050 confirmed deaths, and 342,985 confirmed recoveries.
  70. 2020 Friday F: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 30,179.05, DOWN 124.32 points (-0.41%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  12,755.64, DOWN 9.11 points (-0.71%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,709.41, DOWN 13.07 points (-0.35%).  Price of GOLD: $1,886.80 per troy oz., -2.10 (-0.11%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $26.00 per troy oz., -0.033 (-0.13%).  Price of PLATINUM: $1,044.20 per troy oz., +0.90 (+0.09%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,347.50 per troy oz., -0.70 (-0.03%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.64 per #, +0.01 (+0.28%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $49.08, -0.02 (-0.04%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.53 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.82 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 77.03 Afghan Afghani.
  71. 2020 Friday G: We learn that the ATF- the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives is trying to emplace new rules on AR-15 pistols, firearms that come with braces that strap to the shooter’s forearms, could soon have requirements demanding they be registered, dismantled, turned in to the government, or destroyed.  It’s like we always say: GO BUY YOUR GUNS NOW.  Then, find secure holding places for them because when government comes a-knocking on one’s door demanding your guns, ‘oh, gee, some illegal alien stole them yesterday and I was just about to report them.’  F**k the government if “Pro-China Joe” Biden begins running it and that moron of morons, Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke comes looking for them.  We are telling you; people are going to get themselves shot.
  72. 2020 Friday H: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1617 with a jackpot of $330,000,000 up for grabs: 07, 15, 25, 51, 60, and Mega 05.  Out of 110,011 winning tickets, the highest winners were THREE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $9,064 apiece.
  73. 2020 Friday I: As usual, we invite everyone to stick around today in order to discover what the Chi-Com puppeteers are up to today as they pull the strings of the Democratic Party in concert with the Canadians, Iranians, Russians, Venezuelans, Cubans, and North Koreans.  We know it’s no good but await the results… see you later…

FOOTNOTES:


[i] Sometime within the next decade, we hope to present the music of the Classical composers as without them, we would live in a barbarous world where Islamist scum murder innocent people at will.  Music is what sets civilized people apart from the savages.

[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] 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.

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

[v] One of the greatest saxophonists of his time, he performed with numerous bands but primarily the Rolling Stones.

[vi] We promoted the music of this venerable British rock band as part of a series of interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This included the Small Faces, Faces, Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood, Jeff Beck, Steve Marriott, Humble Pie, and other interconnected parts.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[vii] We are not sure when we will present the music of the Cars but if you are still with us when we celebrate our second decade of activity, you may see them then so please, stay with us.  We thank you.

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

[ix] We are surprised that no one ever assassinated this worthless POS.  However, he died of gut cancer because instead of coming to the United States or Spain for treatment, he went to Cuba, a place Democrats say has ‘the best health care system in the world’ and which they want to replicate here in the United States with “Medicare for All,” which means “NOT Medicare at All” but a crap system.

  56. 2020 Friday: Thanks to the persecution of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn by out-of-control leftist Judge Emmet G. Sullivan, we have learned that the main sub-source for the so-called (Christopher) Steele Dossier is Ukrainian born Igor “Iggy” Danchenko, a foreign national investigated by the FBI from 2009 to 2011.  Apparently, he was ‘flipped’ by the Obama administration and would become a major player in the fabrication of the bogus dossier used by the Hillary 2016 presidential campaign and Democrats to destroy then-candidate and now-president Donald J. Trump.   We also have learned- thanks again to Judge Sullivan- that several FBI agents involved in SPYING on Trump and his campaign, White House, and cabinet officials understood the investigation to be extremely flawed and took out personal liability insurance to protect them when the proverbial s**t hit the fan.  The longer Democrat players fail to step forward and begin ‘fessing up,’ the worse we hope things will be for them when the American people know everything.  Meanwhile, the president continues to call what the Democrats have tried to do to him a ‘coup’ which is how a majority of Americans see it.  He also questions ‘WHY the wife of the Moscow, Russia, mayor gave Hunter Biden $3.5 million a short time ago.’  What is up with Hunter?
  57. 2020 Friday A: In Louisville, Kentucky, this morning- following a night of rioting by Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and other human scum- well-known attorney and race-baiter Benjamin Crump does his best to stir up still more violence and to help him do this, he has brought Jacob Blake Sr., father of the thug shot and crippled in Kenosha, Wisconsin, to the smoldering city.  Mr. Crump demands ALL grand jury information be made available to the public, including the names of the grand jurors and witnesses.  He wants to know if Breonna Taylor’s boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, testified at the proceedings.  Why don’t you ask him, sir?   A recent Fox News Channel poll shows that 44-percent of the American people disapprove of the mob violence across the nation, up from the thirties a month or two ago.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump signs an executive order that will send $500 billion to black communities across the country.  The order also calls Antifa and the Ku Klux Klan as terrorist groups.
  58. 2020 Friday B: President Trump is on the campaign trail today with stops in Florida where he attended a roundtable for Latinos event and says he ‘has done more for Latinos than any other president’ which is true.  He plans to hold a rally in Virginia with the Governor Ralph Northam and his wife NOW test positive for the Wuhan Xi Jinping Chinese Bat Flu Virus leading the state government scrambling for ways to prevent the campaign rally.  We know it will become a ‘protest’ which will legitimize the event and stifle the critics.  Meanwhile, popular Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signs an order lifting all remaining COVID-19 restrictions.  Florida is now open for business once more. Elsewhere, former Congressman Ron Paul, father of Senator Rand Paul, entered a hospital in Texas for precautionary reasons.  We hope you are okay.
  59. 2020 Friday C: PAC 12 announces it will play an abbreviated schedule of seven games beginning in November.  Congratulations for coming back!  All major conferences will now be playing or are playing.   President Trump concluded an event- a ‘protest’ if you will- in Georgia and now is on the way to Virginia where he will conduct another ‘protest’ in lieu of being able to hold a political rally.  Elsewhere, Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi when asked if she is going to impeach President Trump again, she nixed that idea what with the election looming in the near future.  She does, however, threaten that the House is going to pass a bill that will limit HOW many SCOTUS nominees a president can nominate and how long they can serve once confirmed.  Since the Democrats have been threatening to stack the courts, we think the president should nominate another seven- instead of one- and get them jump-started in what they now swear to do should “Pro-China Joe” Biden win on November 3.
  60. 2020 Friday D: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 32,356,829 confirmed cases, +317,687, 984,590, confirmed deaths, +5,202, and 22,278,696 confirmed recoveries, +254,052.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 7,099,967 confirmed cases, up 53,170 from yesterday’s reporting, 206,592 confirmed deaths, UP 978, and 3,817,235 confirmed recoveries, UP 16,490.  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: 801,845 confirmed cases, 15,398 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 11,908 confirmed cases, 124 confirmed deaths, and 5,265 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 88,607 confirmed cases, 2,175 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 215,273 confirmed cases, 1,405 confirmed deaths, and 152,837 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other state: Texas- currently, they have 758,646 confirmed cases, 15,595 confirmed deaths, and 642,149 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Greg Abbott, for sharing ALL the numbers.
