  67. 2018 Sunday: In the socialist hellhole of Venezuela, President Nicolas Maduro wins re-election in a questionable election marked by boycotts, protests, and massive accusations of vote-rigging.  The guy must be a Democrat.
  68. 2019 Monday: Google supposedly ends its support for communist China’s Huawei Android phone system as tensions between the United States and the counterfeit socialist nation deteriorate.
  69. 2020 Wednesday: Beijing is sniveling and whining that everyone is calling the Chinese Virus “the Chinese Virus,” but it is the Chinese Virus as it came to us from the hinterlands of Wuhan, China, and it continues killing people around the planet as we speak and allowing totalitarian leaders to increase their grip on their populations.  Here are the stats for the globe today: 4,968,689 number of confirmed cases, 326,515 number of confirmed deaths, and 1,885,535 number of confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have (thanks to communist China) 1,581,903 confirmed cases, 93,806 confirmed deaths, and 301,341 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which, the AICPENDBLOG.COM- the old American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day, formerly at Google Blogger (scumbags), California, Hawaii, and Washington state, here are the stats, the Golden State first: 81,795 confirmed cases, 3,334 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are Hawaii’s stats: 643 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 578 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are Washington state’s stats: 18,923 confirmed cases, 1,037 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, liberal Blue State governors continue freeing criminals from prisons and jails, supposedly out of fear of COVID-19, but in truth, seeking to punish their enemies.  Is a second Civil War coming?  It sure looks that way, thanks to communist China.

  71. 2021 Thursday A: NOTE: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 286,128 Chi-Vi deaths in the United States- President Biden, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 173,481 deaths.   In other Chi-Vi-related news, lawmakers are asking WHY House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, possibly more senile than the 46th president is, won’t update the MASK DICTATE when the Centers for Disease Control says, ‘MOST Americans no longer have to wear masks (not that we ever truly did).’  The amazing thing is that when the Democrats believe the cameras are turned off, the masks come off.  What a load of festering fecal matter.

  75. 2021 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 by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.153 per gallon, $2.884 in Florida, $3.889 in Hawaii, and $3.553 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- West Virginia: $2.993.  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 next lowest gasoline price in the world- Colombia: $2.313 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,309,522,043,913 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  76. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Today is Day 59 for Border Czar “Kooky Kamala” Harris NOT to visit the southern border.  Meanwhile, rumors of maltreatment and mistreatment of illegal aliens in holding pens along the southern border continue to grow and the federal government has closed two facilities with dire records of mistreatment of the incarcerated illegals.  Elsewhere, video is beginning to leak out of illegal alien dumps at various airports around the country in the dead of night.  Chef Lilah who has a relative working at the airport in Honolulu says that illegal alien brats are arriving at least once a week in flights who are then being distributed around the Hawaiian Islands.  This simply must stop. 
  77. 2021 Thursday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– Hamas and Hezbollah are crying uncle.  A ceasefire negotiated by the Joe Biden regime and Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah el-Sissi has brought a halt to the ongoing clash of Good (Israel) and Evil (Hamas and Hezbollah).  The Israelis have eliminated most of the tunnels that Palestinian leadership devotes massive amounts of donated money to construct rather than giving their people better lives.  The Israels also have taken out numerous Hamas military sites and as many Hamas scumbags as possible.  God bless you!   Meanwhile, a Chinese Communist Party-linked professor says that ‘COVID-19 was indeed a Chi-Com biological weapons attack on the United States.’  Hell, we have been saying that since it began gaining steam in early 2020!  Senior Researcher Chen Ping of China Institute of Fudan University said that ‘(communist) China defeated the U.S. in a biological war in 2020.’  What more flipping evidence does the world need to understand that the primary target was President Donald J. Trump, and the primary beneficiary was “Pro-China Joe” Biden?  OPEN YOUR EYES.
  78. 2021 Thursday H: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– Dr. Kelli Ward, chair of the Arizona GOP, says that it would appear that more and more evidence demonstrates that the 2020 Elections in the Copper State most likely were corrupt and fraudulent in Maricopa County and that it is possible that Joe Biden could be proven to be the counterfeit that he is.  We hope to see a great outcome which is why the Arizona Democratic Party is doing everything it can to defy the ongoing audit as is the despicable Dominion Voting Systems out of Canada.  We believe the Canadian government must order them to comply with all requests from the ongoing Grand Canyon State audit.   (Note- George Soros-funded Sheriff Paul Penzone, DS, is fighting the auditors by putting as much blockage in their way.  When the hell is this country going to do something to Mr. Soros?)  Finally, the D.A. in Fayette City, Pennsylvania, has launched a probe into WHY Dominion Voting Systems machines flipped ONLY GOP ballots over to Democrats in the last election.  Bit by bit, more information continues coming out that we believe is going to show that the Democrats stole 2020.  Hence, why is there this determination to continue strengthening Fort Pelosi in Washington, D.C.?  They know they got away with a stolen election.
  79. 2021 Thursday I: Joe Biden Regime News I– the Biden regime directs U.S. agencies to assess and to then mitigate the effects of ‘climate change.’  Uh, okay, what a waste of time.   Next, all of the Biden regime’s misfires has led to problems in the U.S.-Israeli relationship.  Speaking of Israel, Joe’s pal, Senator Bernie Sanders, DS-VT, is offering legislation to BLOCK the $735 million sale of weapons to the Israelis.  (Note- what more evidence does one require to know that Bernie is a self-hating Jew?)  Also related to Israel, GOP lawmakers are calling on Mr. Biden to strengthen U.S. ties with Israel.  In other regime news, the Bidenistas say the Chi-Coms won’t release data from their now infamous Wuhan Biological Warfare Lab.
  80. 2021 Thursday J: Political News I– The University of North Carolina has denied 1619 Project founder, Nikole “Bozo the Clown” Hannah-Jones tenure because this woman is- in the language of the young and dumb- cray-cray.  Good for them.  Educated, fair-minded people must begin pushing back on these racist nuts before they destroy our country.  Boot this bi**h into the nearest dumpster.  Speaking of educated, non-racist folks, a new study finds that 35-percent or more conservative thinkers are better educated and better informed on both current events and past events.  Liberal news watchers are much-less educated and aware of the truth of anything.  Speaking of liberal bias, Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-TX 2nd congressional district, calls out the mainstream news media- what Dave Rubin labels ‘corporate news media’- over its coverage of events.
  81. 2021 Thursday K: Political News II– While the Democrats continue pressing ahead with socialism, House GOP leaders held a Cuban independence day event.  The people of Cuba deserve their freedom while the American people do not deserve being forced into communism via the backdoor of socialism. Meanwhile, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district, lambasted the Democrats’ establishment of the ‘January 06, 2021, Commission’ as being little more than ‘impeachment 3.0.  Amen.  In fact, ZERO people have been charged with insurrection.  NONE.  The National Republican Congressional Committee raised $11.2 million in the month of April.   Elsewhere, people are asking questions as to WHY Governor “Gravel Gertie” Gretchen Whitmer just shut down the state’s Line 5 that provides propane for much of Michigan for home heating?  WTF is occurring here.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

“Pet Sounds” came out on May 16, 1966 and was the commercial pinnacle of the Beach Boys.  No longer touring with his brothers, cousin, and friends, Brian was in the studio with session musicians and lyricists and created perhaps one of the all-time greatest albums in the annals of modern, popular music.  From start to finish, the album was a tapestry of musical influences, stories, feelings, and emotions all interwoven with one another.  When the Beatles heard this album, it is reported that they were awed at what they had to compete.  Of course, they would be working on “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.”  The tunes include nothing but memorable hits such as “Wouldn’t It be Nice,” “You Still Believe in Me,” “Don’t Talk (Put Your Head on my Shoulder),” “Sloop John B,” “God Only Knows,” and “Caroline, No.”  We hope you will seek this album out and make it a part of your daily musical rotation because it will indeed grow upon- not only your ears- but your heart, mind and soul.  Check it out now- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

  62. 2017 Tuesday: The U.S. Senate approves a $1.5 trillion tax bill the Democrats screech, and wail is going to the wealthiest Americans.  Look, the wealthiest Americans are the job creators, so STFU liberal, left-wing losers!   Meanwhile, in communist China, Beijing condemns and executes 10 accused drug smugglers and dealers yet the amount of fentanyl flowing into the U.S. from the Chi-Coms won’t end.  What is up with that?

  66. 2020 Saturday A: The Michigan House of Representatives votes to repeal the Emergency Powers Act they mistakenly bestowed on fascist Governor Gretchen Whitmer, Democrat, an act she used to punish individuals and businesses across the state.  Recall this horrible woman.  Meanwhile, Minnesota prepares to call out the National Guard when the trial of the four police officers charged with the death of George Floyd begins. 
  67. 2020 Saturday B: We now learn that the suspected Russian hack of the U.S. began as far back as March before anyone noticed anything or reported it.  Here are the government departments or entities affected by the Russian FSB thugs: (1) U.S. Treasury Dept. (2) U.S. Commerce Dept. (3) National Institute of Health (4) CISA (5) Dept. of Homeland Security (6) U.S. State Dept. (7) Pentagon- the (8) Office of POTUS (9) NASA (10) Natl. Nuclear Security Administration (11) U.S. Energy Dept. and (12) three U.S. states.  Members of government are calling this an ‘act of war.’  We tend to agree; however, we believe the Russians, the Chi-Coms, the Iranians, and other human garbage around the world are acting in concert and they also hacked the U.S. Presidential Election to sow as much discord and confusion as possible.  Because of this, the U.S. Dept. of State announces that it is going to close the last two U.S. consulates in Russia as U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says, ‘it’s pretty clear that Russia was behind the massive hack.’
  68. 2020 Saturday C: The U.S. Congress is holding a Saturday session on government funding. President Donald J. Trump signs a stopgap spending bill to keep government up and running.  Next, the U.S. Army rejects former national security adviser Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, U.S. Army Retired call for martial law to figure out what the hell happened in the presidential election.   Regarding the election, Franklin Graham says, ‘I tend to believe the election was rigged or stolen.’  Elsewhere, apelike thug and former director of the CIA (and former communist) John Brennan says the Durham report is ‘trolling’ and mocks outgoing Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr.  Have YOU looked in the mirror lately, Mr. Brennan?  You are a thug.   Speaking of Mr. Barr, he says ‘there was NO CIA misconduct in the Trump-Russian collusion probe.’
  69. 2020 Saturday D: In a humorous note, the Fake News Media is blubbering tears, criticizing the so-called ‘president-elect,’ “Pro-Chi-Com China Joe” Biden for closing access to them.  What the hell did you think you dumbasses?   Elsewhere, housing ‘experts’ want the eviction ban extended.  Good for them.  Regarding Chinese Virus-related problems, the GOP wants to bind Chi-Vi aid to limits on federal spending (there’s no money) which throws the outcome of the COVID-19 relief bill into doubt.  Allies of Chi-Com Joe Biden cry, “Foul!”  Speaking of the Wuhan Virus Crisis, the good old ‘Kung Flu,’ the Moderna vaccine has been cleared for emergency use in the United States which will spread the vaccine to greater numbers of people.   
  70. 2020 Saturday E: Questions continue to arise over WHY California Democratic Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell is still in the House of Representatives much less on the House Intelligence Committee when more evidence of him a five-year-plus sexual relationship with a Chi-Com honeypot having continues coming to light.  He must go.  NOW!  We also learn the Chi-Com ‘100-Year Plan’ is for them to bribe, buy, or blackmail everyone around the world who is in their way.  Time to start dropping some nukes, people!   U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says, “The Democrats are too cozy with the Chi-Coms.”  She’s right.
  71. 2020 Saturday F: Stick around for tonight’s Super Lotto Draw and the Powerball drawings.  First, here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3518 with a jackpot of $16 million at stake- 10, 15, 25, 31, 33, and Mega 21.  Out of 92.010 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $17,020 apiece.  One of the two winning tickets was sold at an ARCO AM/PM station in Newbury Park, CA, 91320 while the other was sold at a Mega Liquor in San Gabriel, CA, 91776.   Next, here are the numbers for tonight’s Powerball Draw #804 with a jackpot of $377 million at stake: 27, 32, 34, 43, 52, and Powerball 13.  Out of 101,071 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $52,972.
  72. 2020 Saturday G: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox, communist China’s gift to the world and a boon for Democrats who want to exercise their fascist skills in locking down people’s lives like California’s duplicitous closet pansy Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 76,126,125 confirmed cases, +1,617,691, 1,602,500, confirmed deaths, +11,762, and 42,963,631 confirmed recoveries (again, this number is less than reported a week ago), +361,393.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 17,629,293 confirmed cases, UP 177,126 from yesterday’s reporting, 317,534 confirmed deaths, UP 1,765, and 7,857,661 confirmed recoveries, UP 38,121.

  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.

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!

216. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 04, 2021

HHH. 2020 Tuesday: In Beirut, Lebanon, a tremendous blast felt as far as Cyprus, rips part of the port apart, killing between 75-100 people and injuring another 2,700-3,500. Speculation abounds with the Lebanese claiming it was a storage site for firecrackers (yeah, right) but we suspect the site was warehousing Iranian munitions bound for Hamas to use against Israel …

  56. 2016 Thursday: CBS News reports that candidate Donald Trump’s behavior on the campaign trail has been ‘so bizarre’ that many are left to wonder if he is a plant by the Hillary campaign or a secret agent in the employ of Russia. What a load of bogus BS.  This supports the proven theory that the Deep State, the Democratic Party, and their Fake News allies are in cahoots not only to push haggard Hillary into the White House but to bamboozle the American people into believing their phony propaganda.  We shall see who wins in November.
  57. 2017 Friday: German supermarket Aldi pulls all shell eggs from the Netherlands from its shelves after the discovery of the chemical- fipronil- is found in them. Pest control companies use fipronil to kill insects so WTF?  Elsewhere, in a federal court in Brooklyn, New York, former boy wonder pharmaceutical CEO Martin Shkreli- a loser who jacked up the price of a generic drug to the point no one could afford it- undergoes conviction on three counts of securities fraud.
  58. 2018 Saturday: In what many believe to be a setup, Venezuelan thug President Nicolas Maduro survives an assassination attempt, carried out by a drone while the communist POS was at a military review. The event was captured on live TV.  Even better, the former bus-driving thug Maduro blames the assassination attempt on Venezuelan exiles hiding in neighboring Colombia and on their handlers as well as the Venezuelan ‘mafia’ supposedly living in Florida.  Dude, STFU.
  59. 2019 Sunday: The Central Bank of China devalues its currency below the normal 7-1 ratio with the U.S. dollar for the first time in more than a decade, due in part to the trade tariffs President Donald J. Trump is using to force the communists to the bargaining table and trade talks. Meanwhile, in what many believe to be a terrorist attack conducted by ISIS, a car bomb explodes in Cairo, Egypt, killing 20 and injuring another 47 people.   Elsewhere, Connor Bettis- a POS with a gun- hits the bar district in Dayton, Ohio, and kills 9 people and wounds another 27 before law enforcement arrives on scene and shoots the punk dead.
  60. 2020 Tuesday: In Beirut, Lebanon, a tremendous blast felt as far as Cyprus, rips part of the port apart, killing between 75-100 people and injuring another 2,700-3,500. Speculation abounds with the Lebanese claiming it was a storage site for firecrackers (yeah, right) but we suspect the site was warehousing Iranian munitions bound for Hamas to use against Israel so either the Mossad took care of the problem or the mullah-loving Iranians and their Hamas allies are too flipping stupid to be around large caches of explosives.  Self-detonation (or so we suspect- morons!). 
  61. 2020 Tuesday A: Here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 18,380,616 confirmed cases, UP by 241,178 cases, 691,740 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,167 deaths, and 10,973,850 confirmed recoveries, UP by 220,035 recoveries. Here are the numbers for the United States: 4,834,460 confirmed cases, UP by 56,909 new cases, 158,728 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,208 new deaths, and 2,357,033 confirmed recoveries, UP by 38,264 new recoveries. We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.
  62. 2020 Tuesday B: 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: 519,427 confirmed cases, 9,501 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 2,448 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,315 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 58,715 confirmed cases, 1,600 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed 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, the Empire State: 417,589 confirmed number of cases, 35,719 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.  Wake up, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo!  Give us the honest numbers you fetid piece of sewer scum, especially of the senior citizens you have killed.  Shame on you.
  63. 2020 Tuesday C: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 26,828.47, UP 164.07 points (+0.62%). Next, the NASDAQ: 10,841.17, UP 38.37 points (+0.35%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,306.51, UP 11.90 points (+0.36%).  The price of GOLD is $2,040.70 per troy oz., +19.00 (+0.94%) while the price of SILVER is $26.22 per troy ounce, +0.187 (+0.72%).  The price of PLATINUM is $958.50 per troy oz, +3.30 (+0.35%) while the price of COPPER is $2.90 per pound, +0.0085 (+0.29%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.55 per barrel, -0.15 (-0.36%).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.97 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.85 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency.
  64. 2020 Tuesday D: Dr. Oxiris Barbot, New York City health commissioner, sent a letter to moron Mayor Bill Di Blasio, calling it quits over the tremendous mishandling of the COVID-19 Chinese Virus. We must remember that Mayor Di Blasio and Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo colluded together to send patients infected with the Wuhan Flu into rest homes where vulnerable people died sans the presence of any loved ones present.  We can smell massive lawsuits against Di Blasio and Cuomo brewing on the horizon, like the police officers they wish to destroy, they should enjoy NO qualified immunity for their criminal mistakes.  Elsewhere, General Charles Brown took the oath of office in the White House which made him the new chief of staff of the U.S. Air Force, the first black American to hold the post.  Congratulations! 
  65. 2020 Tuesday E: One teachers union after another around the country are making demands before they will return that range from soaking the wealthy, adopting the Green New Deal, abolishing the police, equipping every home with a computer and Internet access, and loads of other stupidity. Friendly state education authorities are trying to shut down private schools, charter schools, you name it, they are doing whatever they can to close it.  President Trump: do what President Ronald Reagan did with the striking air traffic controllers- FIRE THEM and REPLACE THEM.  On August 05, 1981, he fired 11,359 of the scumbags.  Other Americans will take these jobs.
  66. 2021 Wednesday:  Friends, stick around to discover whatever the heck is going on around the world today…what have the Chi-Coms instructed drooling Joe Biden to do today?

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by Jethro Tull hit record store shelves on September 22, 2009: “Live at Madison Square Garden 1978.”  This 1 DVD/1 CD album was LIVE in concert and it featured mostly tunes from “Songs from the Wood” and “Heavy Horses” plus some much-beloved favorites.  The band featured Ian Anderson (vocals, flutes, guitars, keyboards), Martin Barre (guitars), John Glascock (bass), John Evan (keyboards), Barriemore Barlow (drums), and Dee Palmer (keyboards and synthesizers).  We tend to favor the early four albums over the more modern efforts but still, this is a good way to see the band in a whole different light.  We hope you will seek it out and consider making it a part of your listening day.  Enjoy.

In it, they announce that the Total Information Awareness program- one millions of Americans believe is compiling dossiers on them will change its name to the Terrorist Information Awareness program henceforth so the American people will be lulled into complacency.

  66. 2018 Sunday: In the socialist hellhole of Venezuela, President Nicolas Maduro wins re-election in a questionable election marked by boycotts, protests, and massive accusations of vote-rigging.  The guy must be a Democrat.
  67. 2019 Monday: Google supposedly ends its support for communist China’s Huawei Android phone system as tensions between the United States and the counterfeit socialist nation deteriorate.
  68. 2020 Wednesday: Beijing is sniveling and whining that everyone is calling the Chinese Virus “the Chinese Virus,” but it is the Chinese Virus as it came to us from the hinterlands of Wuhan, China, and it continues killing people around the planet as we speak and allowing totalitarian leaders to increase their grip on their populations.  Here are the stats for the globe today: 4,968,689 number of confirmed cases, 326,515 number of confirmed deaths, and 1,885,535 number of confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have (thanks to communist China) 1,581,903 confirmed cases, 93,806 confirmed deaths, and 301,341 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which, the AICPENDBLOG.COM- the old American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day, formerly at Google Blogger (scumbags), California, Hawaii, and Washington state, here are the stats, the Golden State first: 81,795 confirmed cases, 3,334 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are Hawaii’s stats: 643 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 578 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are Washington state’s stats: 18,923 confirmed cases, 1,037 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, liberal Blue State governors continue freeing criminals from prisons and jails, supposedly out of fear of COVID-19, but in truth, seeking to punish their enemies.  Is a second Civil War coming?  It sure looks that way, thanks to communist China.
  69. 2021 Thursday: Everyone knows the drill- stick around with us and discover the truth…the way things are going, we may have to make nice with China because things are going to hell here in the United States in a handbasket what with WOKE this and WOKE that and here a WOKE and there a WOKE, everywhere a WOKE-WOKE-WOKE…

Trump to the U.S. Senate until the GOP-controlled upper house promises a ‘fair and just proceeding,’ meaning a guarantee to do whatever the Democrats demand of them.  Not going to happen.  This battle will carry over to the New Year as House lawmakers are already heading home for a two-week Christmas break.  Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, California, at Loyola Marymount College, seven Democrat hopefuls are going to debate tonight.
  60. 2020 Saturday: We have two NFL games this Saturday afternoon but first, a recap on Thursday Night Football’s matchup: (1) Los Angeles Chargers, 30 (5-9) @ Las Vegas Raiders, 27 (8-6) Thursday Night 5:30 P.M.

  61. 2020 Saturday A: The Michigan House of Representatives votes to repeal the Emergency Powers Act they mistakenly bestowed on fascist Governor Gretchen Whitmer, Democrat, an act she used to punish individuals and businesses across the state.  Recall this horrible woman.  Meanwhile, Minnesota prepares to call out the National Guard when the trial of the four police officers charged with the death of George Floyd begins. 
  62. 2020 Saturday B: We now learn that the suspected Russian hack of the U.S. began as far back as March before anyone noticed anything or reported it.  Here are the government departments or entities affected by the Russian FSB thugs: (1) U.S. Treasury Dept. (2) U.S. Commerce Dept. (3) National Institute of Health (4) CISA (5) Dept. of Homeland Security (6) U.S. State Dept. (7) Pentagon- the (8) Office of POTUS (9) NASA (10) Natl. Nuclear Security Administration (11) U.S. Energy Dept. and (12) three U.S. states.  Members of government are calling this an ‘act of war.’  We tend to agree; however, we believe the Russians, the Chi-Coms, the Iranians, and other human garbage around the world are acting in concert and they also hacked the U.S. Presidential Election to sow as much discord and confusion as possible.  Because of this, the U.S. Dept. of State announces that it is going to close the last two U.S. consulates in Russia as U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says, ‘it’s pretty clear that Russia was behind the massive hack.’
  63. 2020 Saturday C: The U.S. Congress is holding a Saturday session on government funding. President Donald J. Trump signs a stopgap spending bill to keep government up and running.  Next, the U.S. Army rejects former national security adviser Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, U.S. Army Retired call for martial law to figure out what the hell happened in the presidential election.   Regarding the election, Franklin Graham says, ‘I tend to believe the election was rigged or stolen.’  Elsewhere, apelike thug and former director of the CIA (and former communist) John Brennan says the Durham report is ‘trolling’ and mocks outgoing Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr.  Have YOU looked in the mirror lately, Mr. Brennan?  You are a thug.   Speaking of Mr. Barr, he says ‘there was NO CIA misconduct in the Trump-Russian collusion probe.’
  64. 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.   
  65. 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 having a five-year-plus sexual relationship with a Chi-Com honeypot 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.
  66. 2020 Saturday F: Stick around for tonight’s Super Lotto Draw and the Powerball drawings. First, here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3518 with a jackpot of $16 million at stake- 10, 15, 25, 31, 33, and Mega 21.  Out of 92.010 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $17,020 apiece.  One of the two winning tickets was sold at an ARCO AM/PM station in Newbury Park, CA, 91320 while the other was sold at a Mega Liquor in San Gabriel, CA, 91776.   Next, here are the numbers for tonight’s Powerball Draw #804 with a jackpot of $377 million at stake: 27, 32, 34, 43, 52, and Powerball 13.  Out of 101,071 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $52,972.
  67. 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.
  68. 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.
  69. 2020 Saturday I: 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!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Now that the J. Geils Band was on an upward trajectory, the band’s old record company, Atlantic Records decided what the heck, we are going to release another best of album, “Best of the J. Geils Band Two” on October 28, 1980.  Once again there were another nine tunes culled from throughout the group’s discography with the label and folks, these are great tunes.  If you have failed to get in on the ground floor with the group’s work, well, this is a superb way in which, you can do it which is why we encourage everyone to seek this one out and add it to your growing record collection.  Remember- wax is best and old “Pro-China Joe” Biden said in a primary debate that everyone should leave the record player on at night for their young kids and this is one of the albums you would have playing as the little tikes are trying to sleep.  This music is far better than say the music of Maroon Five or any of the modern-day crap you hear on WOKE radio stations.

TODAY IN HISTORY, SATURDAY DECEMBER 19, 2020

PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.

Saturday, December 19, 2020:

FOOTNOTES:


[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 perjury 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 go or will remain along the sidelines talking shit.

TODAY IN HISTORY—AUGUST 04, 2020

EEE. 2019 Sunday: The Central Bank of China devalues its currency below the normal 7-1 ratio with the U.S. dollar for the first time in more than a decade, due in part to the trade tariffs President Donald J. Trump is using to force the communists to the bargaining table and trade talks. Meanwhile, in what many believe to be a terrorist attack conducted by ISIS, a car bomb explodes in Cairo, Egypt, killing 20 and injuring another 47 people. Scumbags.

  54. 2016 Thursday: CBS News reports that candidate Donald Trump’s behavior on the campaign trail has been ‘so bizarre’ that many are left to wonder if he is a plant by the Hillary campaign or a secret agent in the employ of Russia. What a load of bogus BS.  This supports the proven theory that the Deep State, the Democratic Party, and their Fake News allies are in cahoots not only to push haggard Hillary into the White House but to bamboozle the American people into believing their phony propaganda.  We shall see who wins in November.
  55. 2017 Friday: German supermarket Aldi pulls all shell eggs from the Netherlands from its shelves after the discovery of the chemical- fipronil- is found in them. Pest control companies use fipronil to kill insects so WTF?
  56. 2018 Saturday: In what many believe to be a setup, Venezuelan thug President Nicolas Maduro survives an assassination attempt, carried out by a drone while the communist POS was at a military review. The event was captured on live TV.
  57. 2019 Sunday: The Central Bank of China devalues its currency below the normal 7-1 ratio with the U.S. dollar for the first time in more than a decade, due in part to the trade tariffs President Donald J. Trump is using to force the communists to the bargaining table and trade talks. Meanwhile, in what many believe to be a terrorist attack conducted by ISIS, a car bomb explodes in Cairo, Egypt, killing 20 and injuring another 47 people.
  58. 2020 Tuesday: In Beirut, Lebanon, a tremendous blast felt as far as Cyprus, rips part of the port apart, killing between 75-100 people and injuring another 2,700-3,500. Speculation abounds with the Lebanese claiming it was a storage site for firecrackers (yeah, right) but we suspect the site was warehousing Iranian munitions bound for Hamas to use against Israel so either the Mossad took care of the problem or the mullah-loving Iranians and their Hamas allies are too flipping stupid to be around large caches of explosives.  Self-detonation (or so we suspect- morons!).
  59. 2020 Tuesday A: Here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 18,380,616 confirmed cases, UP by 241,178 cases, 691,740 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,167 deaths, and 10,973,850 confirmed recoveries, UP by 220,035 recoveries. Here are the numbers for the United States: 4,834,460 confirmed cases, UP by 56,909 new cases, 158,728 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,208 new deaths, and 2,357,033 confirmed recoveries, UP by 38,264 new recoveries.  We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.
  60. 2020 Tuesday B: 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: 519,427 confirmed cases, 9,501 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 2,448 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,315 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 58,715 confirmed cases, 1,600 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed 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, the Empire State: 417,589 confirmed number of cases, 35,719 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.  Wake up, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo!  Give us the honest numbers you fetid piece of sewer scum, especially of the senior citizens you have killed.  Shame on you.
  61. 2020 Tuesday C: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 26,828.47, UP 164.07 points (+0.62%). Next, the NASDAQ: 10,841.17, UP 38.37 points (+0.35%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,306.51, UP 11.90 points (+0.36%).  The price of GOLD is $2,040.70 per troy oz., +19.00 (+0.94%) while the price of SILVER is $26.22 per troy ounce, +0.187 (+0.72%).  The price of PLATINUM is $958.50 per troy oz, +3.30 (+0.35%) while the price of COPPER is $2.90 per pound, +0.0085 (+0.29%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.55 per barrel, -0.15 (-0.36%).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.97 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.85 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency.
  62. 2020 Tuesday D: Dr. Oxiris Barbot, New York City health commissioner, sent a letter to moron Mayor Bill Di Blasio, calling it quits over the tremendous mishandling of the COVID-19 Chinese Virus. We must remember that Mayor Di Blasio and Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo colluded together to send patients infected with the Wuhan Flu into rest homes where vulnerable people died sans the presence of any loved ones present.  We can smell massive lawsuits against Di Blasio and Cuomo brewing on the horizon, like the police officers they wish to destroy, they should enjoy NO qualified immunity for their criminal mistakes.  Elsewhere, General Charles Brown took the oath of office in the White House which made him the new chief of staff of the U.S. Air Force, the first black American to hold the post.  Congratulations!
  63. 2020 Tuesday E: One teachers union after another around the country are making demands before they will return that range from soaking the wealthy, adopting the Green New Deal, abolishing the police, equipping every home with a computer and Internet access, and loads of other stupidity. Friendly state education authorities are trying to shut down private schools, charter schools, you name it, they are doing whatever they can to close it.  President Trump: do what President Ronald Reagan did with the striking air traffic controllers- FIRE THEM and REPLACE THEM.  On August 05, 1981, he fired 11,359 of the scumbags.  Other Americans will take these jobs.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

 

 

#ST0001.1w Slow Motion #23 07-02-2020 (400)

 

Supertramp released its final studio album, “Slow Motion” on April 23, 2002.   The band now featured Rick Davies (keyboards, vocals, harmonicas), John Anthony Helliwell (saxophones, flutes, vocals), Cliff Hugo (bass), Mark Hart and Carl Verheyen (guitars, backing and lead vocals), and Bob Seibenberg (drums and percussion) along with a few others to add seasoning to the music.  Any band with a more than two-decade (or more) history undergoes changes, sometimes for the best, others for the worst, but this is a welcome return to the sound that made them monsters of the music tours back in the day.  We know you are going to enjoy this fine recording so please, seek for it now and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

Following a successful world tour, the new Pink Floyd released a double live album, the stunning “Delicate Sound of Thunder” on November 21, 1988. The band performed early and current tunes and folks, do not let anyone criticize the David Gilmour-led era of the band because there is nothing wrong with it whatsoever and in fact, people poured out to see them perform live. This album is definitely one every fan of the band and of its original members should own. We know you will enjoy it so please seek it out, give it a listen, and add it to your collection; you will be glad you did.
