  51. 2017 Thursday: According to On This Day, scientists at Cal-Tech publish an article in the journal, “Current Biology,” of the first brainless animal, the jellyfish Cassiopeia, that actually ‘sleeps.’  Most scientists believe that only animals gifted with brains sleep, as it is a normal function for creatures with thought processes.
  52. 2018 Friday: Trembling Dr. Christine Blasey Ford offers to testify before the U.S. Senate on the allegations of rape and sexual abuse she launched against President Donald J. Trump’s second U.S. Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.  It would later turn out that she was a liar as were other women- most notably those turned up (or out) by thug attorney, Michael Avenatti.  It was all a scheme to destroy Kavanaugh’s reputation and drive him from the nomination.  It didn’t work.
  53. 2019 Saturday: In Indonesia’s Jambi Province, skies go bright red as the worst illegal forest fires since 2015 blaze away, destroying more than 800,000 acres and causing respiratory distress for more than a million citizens.  They need Smokey the Bear. 
  54. 2020 Monday: Tropical Storm Beta is expected to attain hurricane status when it arrives on the Texas gulf coast sometime late today/early tomorrow.  Meanwhile, outside Los Angeles, the Bobcat Fire doubles in size thanks to warm winds breathing new life into it.  Next, on the other side of the country, New York City Transit officials say yesterday’s derailment of a subway train occurred due to vandalism.  No one was hurt but it’s clear that Antifa/Black Lives Matter is extending its reach when it comes to terrorism.  Moving on, the Biden-Harris (or is it Harris-Biden) 2020 campaign announces it has $466 million in its coffers, having pulled in more than $100 million in the previous 48 hours by milking the death of Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg whereas the Trump-Pence campaign as $325 million on hand.  Speaking of President Trump and Justice Ginsburg, the commander-in-chief announces he will nominate his replacement pick for Justice Ginsburg on Thursday or Friday of this week.  All the while, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi promises to impeach President Trump- again!- should he fulfill his constitutional duty to nominate someone to fill a vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court.   Meanwhile, well-known genius Alexandria “The Fly” Ocasio Cortez, aka Sandy Cortez, aka Baby Evita, aka AOC says that if Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY, moves forward with hearings on the nominee, that he ‘is playing with fire.’  Yikes.
  55. 2020 Monday A: Speaking of angry Democrats, the Dems say they are going to (1) end the filibuster in the U.S. Senate on EVERYTHING meaning every vote will be decided by the nuclear option, 50-percent plus one.  (2) They will give statehood to Puerto Rico and the District of Columba.  Why not give statehood to the U.S. Virgin Islands, to Guam, to Northern Marianas Islands, and to American Samoa.  (3) They plan to stack the Supreme Court with an additional five to seven justices.  (4) They plan to topple the Electoral College.  (5) They plan to increase taxes by $3 TRILLION as well as to reimpose the Obamacare mandate, all the rules and regulations overturned and removed by the Trump administration, and jump back in to the JCPOA, the Paris Climate Accords, and the Trans-Pacific Partnership.  (6) They are going to grant the franchise to prisoners serving time, to felons, and to 15-and-16-year-olds.  What more can we say?  We must crush this illegitimate, Chi-Com colluding political party.  It is us or them.
  56. 2020 Monday B: Famed NBA star and noted ‘genius’ LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers chides Lori Loughlin, actress, and her husband who must go to prison for having bribed the university of their daughter’s choice to get her in, for allowing Loughlin to choose the facility.  LeBron says ‘it ain’t right.’  Elsewhere, a survey finds that unless Chinese Virus relief issues are soon met, 60-percent of all restaurants will close their doors forever.  Imagine all the real estate the Chi-Coms will be buying via shadow companies, straw buyers, and of course, their Democratic Party hacks.
  57. 2020 Monday C: U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr labels three cities in the United States as anarchist jurisdictions- New York City, Portland, Oregon, and Seattle, Washington, for permitting and enabling out-of-control riots, mob violence, looting, rape, robbery, arson, and murder.  The AG said: “When state and local leaders impede their own law enforcement officers and agencies from doing their jobs, it endangers innocent citizens who deserve to be protected, including those who are trying to peacefully assemble and protest.  We cannot waste federal tax dollars to be wasted when the safety of the citizenry hangs in the balance.”  The federal government seeks to strip these cities who have crippled their law enforcement via defunding or reduction so as to force them back into line.  New York City currently receives about $7 billion annually from U.S. taxpayers.  This must stop. Strip Portland and Seattle of their funding, too, until they regain their senses, or the voters replace them.   
  58. 2020 Monday D: A federal judge in Wisconsin ruled today that mail-in election ballots can be counted for up to SIX DAYS post-Election Day so long as they are postmarked on Election Day.  Bret Baier on FNC believes this will go to the Supreme Court to be overturned or put into law.  Meanwhile, President Trump is on the trail in the Midwest, stopping in Ohio and traveling elsewhere while “Pro-China Joe” Biden visited Wisconsin, there to try to re-energize his flagging base.  Question is, WHO is the real string-puller behind former VP Biden?  We suspect it’s none other than Xi Jinping and that Congressman James Clyburn is the conduit through which the alleged cash flow goes.  Think about it: Biden was lost until Clyburn vouched for him, impeachment failed, the U.S.-Sino Trade Deal signed and then the Chi-Com Flu arrived on scene.  We don’t believe in coincidences nor should YOU.
  59. 2020 Monday E: Folks, here are the numbers for the Wuhan Waltz, you know, COVID-19 Chinese Bat Flu Virus Crisis, the pandemic they started but blame on the U.S.:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 31,120,980 confirmed cases, +261,911, 961,656, confirmed deaths, +3,342, and 21,287,328 confirmed recoveries, +188,233.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 6,932,317 confirmed cases, up 68,463 from yesterday’s reporting, 202,982 confirmed deaths, UP 573, and 3,723,573 confirmed recoveries, UP 18,066.  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: 789,717 confirmed cases, 15,029 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 11,534 confirmed cases, 120 confirmed deaths, and 4,759 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 86,317 confirmed cases, 2,131 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Michigan- currently, they have 129,662 confirmed cases, 6,982 confirmed deaths, but for some unknown reason NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries- what more do you need to know about Democratic hack Governor Gretchen Whitmer?  Her husband can take his boat out on the lake but anyone else- YOU better watch out!  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife have moved there: 190,929 confirmed cases, 1,273 confirmed deaths, and 136,780 confirmed recoveries.
  60. 2020 Monday F: BAD DAY for stocks today, all because of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 27,147.70, DOWN 509.72 points (-1.84%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  10,778.80, DOWN 14.48 points (-0.13%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,281.06, DOWN 38.41 points (-1.16%).  Price of GOLD: $1,918.30 per troy oz., +7.70 (+0.40%). Here is the price of SILVER: $24.84 per troy oz., +0.458 (+1.88%).  Price of PLATINUM: $883.90 per troy oz., +7.80 (+0.89%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,281.70 per troy oz., -99.10 (-4.16%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.04 per #, +0.0045 +-0.15%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $39.62, +0.31 (+0.79%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.81 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.84 euros.
  61. 2020 Monday G: Sadly, today Tommy DeVito- original guitarist/vocalist with the Four Seasons (would eventually be known as Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons)- lost his battle with the lab-engineered Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  DeVito died in Las Vegas, Nevada, at age 92.  He was with the Four Seasons from 1960-1970.  
  62. 2021 Tuesday: As always, we do not know what yet is to come but when we discover what the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party patsies are doing today, you will be the first to know so please- stick around…

JJJ. 2018 Wednesday: In the first vote of its kind, the European Parliament votes to hold Hungary accountable for un-democratic actions, most likely over that country trying to stem the tidal wave of Muslim ‘refugees and migrants’ who are trekking up the backroads of Eastern Europe on the way to Germany where Angela Merkel welcomes them with open arms. Don’t give in, Hungary!

  72. 2020 Thursday E: 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: 2,282,219 confirmed cases, 25,449 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 21,397 confirmed cases, 288 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: 247,575 confirmed cases, 3,486 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, Alabama: 361,226 confirmed number of cases, 4,827 confirmed deaths, and sadly, no mention of the confirmed number of recoveries- thank you.

  74. 2020 Thursday G: Here it is, New Year’s Eve and no one knows what the scoundrels in Beijing or their patsies in the Democratic Party are up to today which is why we encourage everyone to stick around and discover their crimes and misdeeds with us…curious?  We sure the heck are…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next solo album by vocalist Peter Wolf- “Fool’s Parade,” came out on September 29, 1998 and lo and behold, Jann Wenner- reclusive founder of the magazine “Rolling Stone” labeled it as among the essential recordings of the 1990s.  Wolf brought together another group of talented musicians to help him create a fine rock and roll effort.  Johnny A., Steve Conte, and Cornell Dupree performed guitars as Tony Beard did drums, John Conte, bass, as well as a coterie of others to help round out the sound.  This is a wonderful album; one we encourage everyone to seek out wherever they shop for the absolute best in rock and roll music and give it a good listen.  We think you will add it to your growing collection of nothing but the best in rock music- something we have been promoting since our founding in 2009.

Bowe Bergdahl, held as a POW for years in Afghanistan after he walked away from a military outpost and into the hands of the Taliban, pleads guilty to desertion charges.
  59. 2018 Tuesday: Liberals are screaming and moaning (what else is new?) over President Donald J. Trump’s refusal to condemn the Saudi government over the murder of Saudi American Jamal Khashoggi, journalist, killed by Saudi intelligence officers in Turkey.  Trump awaits the full story before going after the Saudis.  Meanwhile, the Pentagon says a successful drone strike in Somalia kills at least 60 al-Shabab militants and wounds numerous others.  Congratulations!  Finally, reports begin appearing that link the Chi-Coms to the arrests of more than 1 million Uighur Muslims in Xinjiang Province in western China.  They are being ‘reeducated’ in concentration camps, so says Beijing.  “Mind your own business” is more like it.  
  60. 2019 Wednesday: After the sentencing of separatist leaders in Catalonia, trouble in the streets across the province continues.  Meanwhile, Democrats continue screeching and wailing that if changes are made to the Food Stamp Program, 500,000 kids could lose FREE school lunches.  Folks, most of those kids are ILLEGAL ALIENS and must be deported.
  61. 2020 Friday: “Pro-China Joe” Biden informs the American people that he will share his potential SCOTUS picks by November 3- Election Day.  Meanwhile, states shatter early voting records as Democrat early voters are driving the numbers.  Nothing unusual about this- they always do it in the vain hopes of depressing the opposition.   Elsewhere, the Trump administration continue arguing over the Chi-Vi stimulus bill with House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, fighting over so-called ‘poison pills’ contained within the text of the proposed bill.  Newsmax reports that the speaker and the president have not spoken to one another in a year.
  62. 2020 Friday A: Russian President Vladimir Putin poses extending the arms treaty between his nation and the United States by one year.  In the U.S., oil majors pitch more campaign cash to the Democrats over the issue of fracking. Why they aren’t sending the money to the GOP is beyond us because if the Democrats win in November, fossil fuels and all the jobs connected to the energy industry are going to VANISH.   Elsewhere, the FCC plans to clarify 47 U.S. Code Section 230 C behind which, online ‘platforms’ such as Google, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and others censor conservative views while allowing leftists to get away with whatever they like.  Jack Dorsey at Twitter announced today that Twitter will NO LONGER block hacked information from appearing as long as it’s NOT the hackers posting it.  Good for you.
  63. 2020 Friday B: Sheldon Adelson, CEO of the Las Vegas Sands Corporation, and his wife are donating $75 million to an anti-“Pro-China Joe” Biden group.    Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump is holding two rallies today, one in Ocala, Florida, and the other in Macon, Georgia.  Meanwhile, Mr. Biden has put a lid on his campaigning today while his running mate, “Kooky Kamala” Harris is in self-imposed quarantine since two staffers came down with the Chi-Vi.   Elsewhere, the House Republicans are querying the FBI as to ‘whether or not they had Hunter Biden’s alleged laptop during the Trump impeachment?’  We believe they did and when the president wins a second term, we hope he fires FBI Director Chris Wray, CIA Director Gina Haspel, and possibly Attorney-General Bill Barr over their blocking of the Durham Report from appearing prior to the Election.
  64. 2020 Friday C: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 39,126,112 confirmed cases, +369,823, 1,101,007, confirmed deaths, +5,791, and 26,956,913 confirmed recoveries, +203,913.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 8,109,811 confirmed cases, up 93,363 from yesterday’s reporting, 221,320 confirmed deaths, UP 1,156, and 5,190,654 confirmed recoveries, UP 106,730.  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: 871,028 confirmed cases, 16,844 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 13,922 confirmed cases, 184 confirmed deaths, and 10,915 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 100,855 confirmed cases, 2,331 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 301,896 confirmed cases, 2,141 confirmed deaths, and 262,503 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other state: Wisconsin- currently, they have 171,481 confirmed cases, 1,574 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Tony Evers, for withholding the numbers of recoveries- you, sir, are a BIG CROOK.
  65. 2020 Friday D: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 28,606.31, UP 112.11 points (+0.39%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  11,671.56, DOWN 42.31 points (-0.36%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,483.81, UP 0.47 points (+0.013%).  Price of GOLD: $1,902.90 per troy oz., -3.50 (-0.18%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $24.28 per troy oz., -0.125 (-0.51%).  Price of PLATINUM: $865.10 per troy oz., -4.20 (-0.48%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,342.30 per troy oz., -24.80 (-1.05%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.06 per #, -0.0045 (-0.15%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $40.78, -0.10 (-0.24%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.70 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.85 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.69 Afghan afghani.
  66. 2020 Friday E: Here are the numbers for the Mega-Million #1599: 27, 32, 50, 52, 57, and Mega 12.  The jackpot is $60 million.  (Highest winners were 18 people who had four numbers for a prize of $843 apiece).
  67. 2020 Friday F: As you know, when we learn of the latest outrages committed by the Chi-Coms and their stooges in the Democratic Party, we will keep you posted.  Stay tuned…
