  59. 2019 Sunday: The House Judiciary Committee announces Wednesday is the day when it will hold its first hearings in the impeachment of President Donald J. Trump.  Meanwhile, three women accuse U.S. ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland of sexual improprieties from before he assumed this position.  Looks like #MeToo strikes again.  Elsewhere, the first traceable patient infected with COVID-19, aka the Chi-Vi, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, aka the Kung Flu, among other names- a 55-year-old Chi-Com citizen in Wuhan, China, is diagnosed with the disease.
  60. 2020 Tuesday: In Lansing, Michigan in the state Senate’s Oversight Committee, witness after witness after witness testifies as to the shocking levels of corruption and voter fraud that occurred within the state before, on, and post-Election Day. Witnesses testifies to all sorts of anomalous behavior that occurred, from mishandling of ballots to ballots arriving under cover of darkness from out of state, and the persecution of Republican poll workers.   Still, people are curious as to WHY with all the accumulating evidence demonstrating the shocking level of fraud that occurred in the 2020 Election on behalf of the Biden campaign, WHERE is the FBI, WHERE is the U.S. Department of Justice, WHERE are the legions of elected Republicans demanding answers to this horrendous mess?  Is it because they think this won’t happen to them if everything returns to ‘normal?’  Don’t be so naïve.  Meanwhile, a judge in Clark County, Nevada, rules that election workers must leave the voting machines, containers, and everything else associated with the 2020 Elections untouched for investigative purposes.  Elsewhere, the Trump campaign is fighting in Wisconsin to get 221 thousand absentee ballots thrown out over them being corrupted. 
  61. 2020 Tuesday A: New Jersey law enforcement officers are investigating a dead pig left on the door of a rabbi during the Jewish sabbath. Elsewhere, Ohio’s GOP is bucking the lockdown restrictions of Republican Governor Mike DeWine.  About time.    Meanwhile, ‘President-elect pro-China Joe’ Biden now is receiving daily presidential briefings.  Finally, West Virginia Democratic Senator Joe Manchin says, ‘AOC is mostly active on Twitter and nowhere else.’  How true.
  62. 2020 Tuesday B: Here are today’s Comrade Xi Pangolin-Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 63,556,040 confirmed cases, UP by 526,965 cases, 1,474,643 confirmed deaths, UP by 9,848 deaths, and 40,798,426 confirmed recoveries, UP by 463,207 recoveries.

  63. 2020 Tuesday C: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 1,236,256 confirmed cases, 19,212 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 18,006 confirmed cases, 242 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 172,340 confirmed cases, 2,895 confirmed deaths, but like California, the brutish 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, Idaho: 102,158 confirmed number of cases, 937  confirmed number of deaths, and 40,929 confirmed number of recoveries.  Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there.  Here they are: 338,127 confirmed cases, 2,877 confirmed deaths, and 323,224 confirmed recoveries.     
  64. 2020 Tuesday D: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 29,823.92, UP 185.28 points (+0.63%). Next, the NASDAQ: 12,355.11, UP 156.37 points (+1.28%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,662.45, UP 40.82 points (+1.13%).  The price of GOLD is $1,819.20 per troy oz., +0.30 (+0.02%) while the price of SILVER is $24.14 per troy ounce, +0.05 (+0.21%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,006.00 per troy oz, +2.10 (+0.21%) while the price of COPPER is $3.50 per pound, +0.019 (+0.55%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,429.70 per troy oz., +23.80 (+0.99%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $44.40 per barrel, -0.15 (-0.34%).  Today, COCOA is $2,739.00 per metric ton, +0.48 (+1.78).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.57 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.83 euros.    
  65. 2020 Tuesday E: Communist China says its robot probe has successfully landed on the moon. They provided no other information as to what its purpose on the moon is going to be.  Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms are angry with Australia for pulling closer to the U.S. and because they are beefing up their own defenses to deter aggression from the communist thugs.   Elsewhere, U.S. Attorney-General William Barr says the Justice Department has uncovered no evidence of widespread voter fraud in the country that would overturn the election results.  However, if one watches OAN and watches the hours of testimony in various battleground states across the nation, one understands that the fraud was rampant, planned, and well-coordinated.  Of course, no one cares about that now…       
  66. 2020 Tuesday F: Here the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions $1612 Draw with a $229,000,000 jackpot up for grabs: 07, 33, 53, 61, 65, and Mega 14.

  67. 2020 Tuesday G: At the White House Christmas party, President Donald J. Trump mentioned that IF he honestly lost the 2020 Presidential Election, we could see him make a second run in 2024. Only one other president- Grover Cleveland- accomplished this by being the 22nd and the 24th presidents of the United States.   Meanwhile, Hewlett-Packard becomes yet another industry located in California to throw in the towel and to announce it’s moving to Texas.  Note- just don’t bring your left-wing politics with you and tear up the Lone Star State.  Elsewhere, former President Barack Hussein Obama slams those seeking to ‘defund the police,’ calling them ‘crazy.’   Speaking of the police, the Fraternal Order of Police reports that in 2020, 283 cops have been shot across the country with an astounding number of 44 killed in action.  This is not good, and it must stop.  In Seattle, lawmakers plan to slash the Seattle Police Department’s budget for 2021 by 18-percent all the while homicides within the city are skyrocketing.  So far this year, 55 people have been murdered in the city.  In Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota, violent car-jackings are up by a whopping 537 percent.     
  68. 2020 Tuesday H: Famed economist Walter E. Williams died at age 84 today. He taught his final class at George Mason University the previous evening.  A famed economist, he authored numerous books on both economics as well as race and intersections between the two.  In the past, he used to occasionally host the Rush Limbaugh Program and was beloved by millions of his fans.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The combined estates of Sandy Denny and her late husband, Trevor Lucas combined to release a fitting conclusion to their careers: “The Attic Tracks 1972-1984” (February 11, 1995).  This stunning effort features classics, unreleased material, and rarities, all combined together to present a compelling picture of what a renowned artist Ms. Denny was, augmented by her husband.  This one can sometimes be challenging to find; however, if you visit sites such as AllMusic, Discogs, and other online emporiums of music, you might find it at a decent price even by visiting eBay and other such sites.  Ah, well, seek it out and if able to give it a listen, please do so.  We think you will enjoy it as much as do.  We still enjoy listening to this superlative CD as we know you will once you have slapped it into your CD player.  Enjoy.

  54. 2020 Saturday B: Attorney-General Bill Barr informs a friend who informs the news media that he would ‘like to stay on in a second Trump administration.’  Elsewhere, Democratic Party vice-presidential nominee Kamala Harris is the target of more online disinformation (BIG TECH is attempting to erase the fact that she was banging Willie Brown of California’s Assembly to get every political post she has ever achieved in California) that either current Vice President Mike Pence or the 2016 VP nominee for Hillary Clinton, nobody Virginia Senator Tim Kain.  Meanwhile, the U.S. State Department announces that the hellhole nation of Iran is targeting various state elections systems in trying to sow confusion, anger, and other disinformation.  F**k them.  Time to send some neutron bombs in the direction of Tehran.
  55. 2020 Saturday C: In a recent speech in Iowa, “Pro-China Joe” Biden begins hammering ‘trillionaires’ although no one in the world has yet qualified as one.’  You go, Joe, you go, tax them trillionaires out of existence.  Meanwhile, nuns supporting President Trump have become victims of far-left Democrats who are doxing them and spreading not only their information online but slanderous lies and bull crap.  (Note- to POTUS: when the election is over, beef up the penalties for crimes such as these).   Elsewhere, a federal appeals court rules that BOTH Texas voters and election workers do not have to wear masks at polling places.

Trump and to destroy as many Republicans as possible.  We cannot permit this to happen.  Fight with us by rejoining us here later in the day…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Fairport Convention regrouped and with an altered lineup yet again was back in work.  Today’s album, “The Bonny Bunch of Roses,” came out on July 14, 1977.  Simon Nichol (guitars, vocals, dulcimers, and piano) was back as a full-time member along with Dave Swarbrick (fiddle, viola, mandolins, and vocals), Dave Pegg (bass, mandolins, guitars, and vocals), and Bruce Rowland (drums, percussion, and piano).  This album took the group back to doing a repertoire of British folk music combined with light rock and fans of the band found themselves enthralled by the song collection.  We hope you will seek this album out wherever you shop for the absolute best in rock music and pick it up.  Back in the day at the Google edition of this blog- one that was around for a decade before that POS Sundar Pichai banned us from view, we used to sell loads of music via links to Amazon, too.  Seems that Amazon also banned us but not we them.  Check this album out and enjoy- you will be glad you did.

Elsewhere, Russian President Vladimir Putin suggests to President Barack Obama that ‘the U.S. and Russia could coordinate on airstrikes designed to wipe the ISIS thugs off the map.’  Seems like the Obama administration had no problem working with the Russkies…speaking of military matters, President Obama vetoes a $612 billion defense spending bill.  Go figure.
  57. 2016 Saturday: As Iraqi forces draw closer to the city of Mosul, held by the ISIS thugs, fighting increases along the roads leading to the city as the jihadist thugs set off IEDs, ambushes, and use human shields to cover their tracks during attacks. Still, the Iraqi military is doing one hell of a job.   Elsewhere, Jessica Drake becomes the 11th woman to accuse of GOP presidential nominee Donald J.

  59. 2018 Monday: National Security Adviser John Bolton meets with Russian President Vladimir Putin after the president suggests the U.S. could withdraw from the arms limitations treaty in which the two nations are engaged. President Trump is concerned the Russians are reneging on their promises and worse, the Chi-Coms are not a part of the treaty, so they are going all out on building their military at a fever pitch.  Meanwhile, the Trump administration plans to expand religious exemptions to ‘birth control coverage’ which in leftist speak means ABORTION.  Why should any religious organization be forced by governmental edict to provide abortions or abortifacients to employees?  It’s insane.

Elsewhere, we continue learning that- like usual- numerous foreign nation states and independent contractors are interfering in our upcoming elections.  We learn that Iran has managed to steal voter information and has been catfishing emails making them appear to come from the Proud Boys threatening them to vote for Trump or else.  Meanwhile, Congressman Jim Jordan, R-OH, says it’s ‘no brainer as to why the Iranians want “Pro-China Joe” Biden to win on November 3. 
  62. 2020 Thursday A: Tonight, is the final debate between candidates Donald J. Trump and “Pro-China Joe” Biden. Ahead of the debate, the president releases excerpts from an interview he did with Leslie Stahl of “60 Minutes” fame, leading her network to go ballistic.  He points out that the difference between his interview with the decrepit, aging newswoman and the one his opponent did with another interviewer was like night and day.  Why these people have so much hate toward the current president is beyond many people’s comprehension.  Speaking of President Trump, Rasmussen says the commanding lead of 12 points or more that “Pro-China Joe” Biden held as little as two weeks ago is now down to three points.  Not looking good for the Democrats. 
  63. 2020 Thursday B: Facebook’s little Mark Zuckerberg and his clone Jack Dorsey at Twitter (aka ‘Shitter’) receive subpoenas to appear before the Senate and to answer questions as to why they are such left-wing POS who believe they can control the flow of information. They have allowed every hateful piece of disinformation on President Donald J. Trump to appear uncensored but anyone talking about “Pro-China Joe” Biden or his crackhead son, Hunter, you get ‘disappeared.’  This BS must stop.

We must say to Kristen Welker- the moderator- that she did a stellar job and that that POS Chris Wallace could learn much from her.  Both men held their own, loads of information was delivered, and it is up to everyone to determine whom they believe to be more truthful and whom they believe to be the winner.  We will find out on November 3.

  75. 2021 Friday F: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE I- Today is Day No. 211 since a feeble Joe Biden appointed “Kooky Kamala” Harris ‘border czar’ and worse, Day No. 118 since she showed up to perform the extremely important duties of the job.

(Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  Meanwhile, Rep. Ashley Hinson, R-IA, 1st House district, says that ‘Joe Biden has turned a blind eye to the southern border.’

  81. 2021 Friday L: JOE BIDEN NEWS I- In Joe Biden’s ‘town hall’ with Anderson Cooper yesterday, senile Joe Biden said that ‘I guarantee FREE community college for everyone’ (including for illegal aliens, refugees, and self-proclaimed asylum seekers). People are still talking about his appearance with Cooper yesterday inquisitively asking WHY the White House would permit a brain-dead putz such as Joe to stumble and bumble on live TV.  It was clear that Joe had no clue as to where he was and even worse is that other on the set, people are deriding him across the country as being incapable of serving as president.  Former White House press secretary and current Newsmax contributor Sean Spicer said today that the ‘media is painting a false world around Joe Biden.’    Sure, seems that way.
  82. 2021 Friday M: JOE BIDEN’S DAILY DISASTER- A new Zogby poll says that ‘in Joe Biden’s America, fully 30-percent of Americans are skipping meals as inflation cuts their purchasing power. Of course, Joe Biden has little clue as to what is occurring on his watch.  (Note- when is Donald Trump coming back to power?  We pray for his return every single day).  Next, a new Gallup poll says that Joe Biden’s approval ratings have dropped- since January to October- 11.3-percent which is the most for any president since World War II.  It’s karma, baby, Joe stole the election and now he and everyone around him is paying the price for their perfidy.
  83. 2021 Friday N: JOE BIDEN REGIME NEWS I-S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland is under increasing pressure to appoint a special counsel to investigate Hunter Biden, Joe Biden’s crooked son.  Next, U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin sidestepped questions as to whether the United States will continue to defend the freedom-loving peoples of Taiwan against the barbaric Mongol hordes of communist China.  Uh, okay.  When Joe Biden was asked about Taiwan, he was incoherent in his answer so the world-famous, highly beloved press secretary, old ‘red on the head like the dick on a dog,’ Jen “Circle Back” Psaki was forced to tell the assembled press corps that ‘nothing has changed when it comes to Taiwan.’  We bet Taiwan is resting easy tonight knowing that Joe Biden has their back.
  84. 2021 Friday O: JOE BIDEN REGIME NEWS II- Struggling to find a job for the racist bigot Neera Tanden, the White House throws her the job of being a White House staff secretary. Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of Justice inspector general says that ‘yes, Andrew McCabe lied to Congress.’  In other Joe Biden regime news, following U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland’s testimony before the House Judiciary Committee earlier in the week, Congressman Scott L. Fitzgerald, R-WI 5th congressional district, said of Garland’s testimony that he did everything he could to ‘duck GOP questions.’  Go figure.
  85. 2021 Friday P: POLITICAL NEWS I- Donald J. Trump Jr. said of the two charlatans running America’s medical system- Drs. “Phony Tony” Fauci and Francis S. Collins that they will do everything they can to lay the blame for gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology at the feet of anyone else.  Meanwhile, Congresswoman Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, 14th congressional district, says she ‘fully supports the crazy new voting laws her home state of New York (really, it’s Puerto Rico which ain’t a state) is busy pushing.’
  86. 2021 Friday Q: POLITICAL NEWS II- The head of the Loudoun County, Virginia, school board, Scott Ziegler is facing increasing outrage over his recent claims of the ‘tranny student wearing a dress who raped a freshman high school girl were the stuff of myth’ now is singing a different tune as emails show the scumbag knew all about the sex crime plus a second one all along. Send this POS to prison.
  87. 2021 Friday R: S. SUPREME COURT NEWS I- Following the U.S. Supreme Court smacking down Joe Biden’s request to STOP the Texas fetal heartbeat/no abortion law, Lone Star State Attorney General Ken Paxton says he hopes the high court will respect his state’s fight to protect life. In other U.S. Supreme Court news, the Biden regime suffered yet another blow as SCOTUS did not strike down the Texas abortion law as demanded by senile Joe Biden.
  88. 2021 Friday S: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I- Following actor Alec Baldwin’s killing of a cinematographer on the set of his low budget film, “Rust,” and the wounding of another yesterday, a debate arises over the use of prop guns. Folks, we are curious as to WHY irascible Alec Baldwin was pointing the gun at someone other than a fellow actor on the set and WHY the gun magically had a live round in the chamber?  Everyone knows that Baldwin is a f**ked up human being and there is no telling what the anger-challenged thespian might do should someone ‘provoke him.’
  89. 2021 Friday T: CRIME AND PUNISHMENT NEWS-LAW ENFORCEMENT NEWS I- Thirty years after thug Willie Smith murdered a police officer’s sister in a cemetery, the state of Alabama executed the POS. (Note- is there a way by which we can halve the years a scumbag sits on death row?  Just saying- the left always claims it’s ‘cheaper to keep someone in prison for life instead of sending them out on white lightning within a year, two at the most).  Next, convicted murderer Robert Durst has now been charged with murdering his wife, Katherine, back in 1982.  (Note- execute this scumbag while we still can before he dies of natural causes).  Elsewhere, an Afghan refugee has been charged with rape in Montana after Governor Greg Gianforte, GOP, welcomed unvetted Afghan refugees to his state. Go figure.
  90. 2021 Friday U: SPORTS NEWS I- The Houston Astros (100-70) are in the World Series. They beat the visiting Red Sox (98-74) by a final score of 5-0 in Game 6 of the ALCS winning the series 4 games to 2.  Tomorrow, the Los Angeles Dodgers go down to Georgia to play the Braves in Game 6 of the NLCS.
  91. 2021 Friday V: CALIFORNIA LOTTERY RESULTS-MEGA-MILLIONS DRAW- Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1705 what with a $108 million jackpot on the line: 09, 14, 26, 29, 66, and Power 22. Out of 67,140 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $17,551.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album put out by Fairport Convention- “Rising for the Moon”- came out on June 24, 1975.  Fans- and critics- of the group labeled it a hybrid band in some respects as it was a melding together of Fairport Convention and Fotheringay what with a combined lineup of sorts, more or less the same one that did their previous effort.  Once again, the band featured (1) Dave Swarbrick (vocals, fiddles, mandolins, guitars, and violas) (2) Trevor Lucas (acoustic guitars and vocals) (3) Jerry Donahue (lead guitar and backing vocals) (4) Dave Pegg (vocals, basses, guitars), (5) Dave Mattacks (drums, percussion, and piano), (6) Sandy Denny (guitars, vocals, pianos), and Bruce Rowland (drums).  This would be the last effort by this venerable British group to chart in the UK thus consigning them to sporadic efforts and frequent touring.  We hope you will seek this one out, give it a good listen, and consider adding it to your daily rotation of musical pleasure; you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

  58. 2017 Tuesday: According to Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook has crossed the 2 billion users plateau.  Boy, George Orwell would have loved this!  Meanwhile, the European Union SLAMS Google for unfair competition practices and hands them a bill for $2.7 billion.  Boy, that will teach that worthless POS Sundar Pichai!  Elsewhere, the GOP is trying to get rid of Obamacare but are doing a half-assed attempt to do it.  Had they not drunk the Kool-Aid that President Donald J. Trump colluded with the Russkies, they might actually have gotten rid of this crap but they failed like they always do.
  59. 2018 Wednesday: U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Anthony M. Kennedy announces his retirement effective July 31st.  Meanwhile, in one of the MOST EMBARRASSING election losses in ages, New York Democrat Congressman Joe Crowley, a powerful member of leadership, goes down in flames as bar maid Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez DEFEATS him in the state’s primary.  He would not even debate this crazy chick because he dismissed her and look what happened to him: LOSER with a capital “L.”
  60. 2019 Thursday: The John Roberts U.S. Supreme Court does it again: it rules in a 6-3 ruling that the U.S. 2020 Census cannot contain a citizenship question.  WTF?  The court also rules that partisan gerrymandering is A-Okay in that the party in power can rejigger the boundary lines of congressional districts.  No wonder the Dems in California are stealing elections.  Again, WTF?   Elsewhere, down in Miami, Florida, the Democrats hold their presidential primary debate.  As usual, it’s a freak show of giving away everything to noncitizens and proclamations that President Donald J. Trump is ‘EVIL.’
  61. 2020 Saturday: Here are today’s COVID-19 Wuhan Virus, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, aka the Chinese Flu, you know, the Chinese “gift” that won’t stop giving, statistics for today: 9,891,728 confirmed cases, 496,075 confirmed deaths, and 5,004,567 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, here are today’s numbers: 2,556,465 confirmed cases, 127,452 confirmed deaths, and 783,235 confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the three states where 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: 206,433 confirmed cases, 5,872 confirmed deaths, but thanks to Gov. Gavin Newsom being little more than a festering POS, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  In Hawaii, here are the stats: 866 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 705 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the too-far-left-to-save-state-of-Washington, here are the stats: 31,351 confirmed cases, 1,310 confirmed deaths, and like California’s worthless governor, Gov. Jay Inslee won’t list the number of confirmed recoveries.
  62. 2021 Sunday: Today is Day #158 of the Biden regime nightmare.  The question is, how long will the American people chafe under this usurper regime?  Especially one owned by the Chi-Coms and the Russians?  Folks, we hope to see the restoration of the Trump presidency before year’s end and the traitors rounded up and sent to prison where they belong.  You know what the Fake News says- we’ve never had a presidential election overturned in the history of the county but then, we have never had an election stolen as blatantly as was the 2020 Presidential Election.  Stay tuned…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Jethro Tull released their next album, “Catfish Rising,” on September 10, 1991, and continued to demonstrate that the group had learned from the excessive mistakes of the 1980s.  The band booted electronics and synthesizers in favor of a harder rock sound because folks, the world was in dire need of hard rock.  The band featured a quintet of featured  Ian Anderson (vocals, flutes, guitars, keyboards), Martin Barre (guitars), Dave Pegg (bass- Fairport Convention) Doane Perry (drums and percussion), and Andy Giddings (keyboards).  It’s always glorious to see a band on the comeback and on a comeback was Jethro Tull.  Many bands were falling by the sidelines as other forms like Grunge came to predominate but the ‘Tull’ was not yet prepared to call it a day.  Thank God.  We hope you will seek this one out wherever you shop for the absolute best in rock music- you will be glad you did.

  61. 2020 Tuesday B: Here are today’s Comrade Xi Pangolin-Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 63,556,040 confirmed cases, UP by 526,965 cases, 1,474,643 confirmed deaths, UP by 9,848 deaths, and 40,798,426 confirmed recoveries, UP by 463,207 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 13,693,774 confirmed cases, UP by 84,000 new cases, 271,296 confirmed deaths, UP by 94 new deaths, and 6,594,109 confirmed recoveries, UP by 1,834 new recoveries.      
  62. 2020 Tuesday C: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 1,236,256 confirmed cases, 19,212 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 18,006 confirmed cases, 242 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 172,340 confirmed cases, 2,895 confirmed deaths, but like California, the brutish 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, Idaho: 102,158 confirmed number of cases, 937  confirmed number of deaths, and 40,929 confirmed number of recoveries.  Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there.  Here they are: 338,127 confirmed cases, 2,877 confirmed deaths, and 323,224 confirmed recoveries.     
  63. 2020 Tuesday D: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 29,823.92, UP 185.28 points (+0.63%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,355.11, UP 156.37 points (+1.28%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,662.45, UP 40.82 points (+1.13%).  The price of GOLD is $1,819.20 per troy oz., +0.30 (+0.02%) while the price of SILVER is $24.14 per troy ounce, +0.05 (+0.21%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,006.00 per troy oz, +2.10 (+0.21%) while the price of COPPER is $3.50 per pound, +0.019 (+0.55%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,429.70 per troy oz., +23.80 (+0.99%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $44.40 per barrel, -0.15 (-0.34%).  Today, COCOA is $2,739.00 per metric ton, +0.48 (+1.78).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.57 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.83 euros.       
  64. 2020 Tuesday E: Commun ist China says its robot probe has successfully landed on the moon.  They provided no other information as to what its purpose on the moon is going to be.  Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms are angry with Australia for pulling closer to the U.S. and because they are beefing up their own defenses to deter aggression from the communist thugs.   Elsewhere, U.S. Attorney-General William Barr says the Justice Department has uncovered no evidence of widespread voter fraud in the country that would overturn the election results.  However, if one watches OAN and watches the hours of testimony in various battleground states across the nation, one understands that the fraud was rampant, planned, and well-coordinated.  Of course, no one cares about that now…
  65. 2020 Tuesday F: Here the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions $1612 Draw with a $229,000,000 jackpot up for grabs: 07, 33, 53, 61, 65, and Mega 14.  Out of 87,418 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but not the Mega for a prize of $889,678.  The store that sold the winning ticket was the Giant K Market at 606 Crouch Street, Oceanside, California, 92054.
  66. 2020 Tuesday G: At the White House Christmas party, President Donald J. Trump mentioned that IF he honestly lost the 2020 Presidential Election, we could see him make a second run in 2024.  Only one other president- Grover Cleveland- accomplished this by being the 22nd and the 24th presidents of the United States.   Meanwhile, Hewlett-Packard becomes yet another industry located in California to throw in the towel and to announce it’s moving to Texas.  Note- just don’t bring your left-wing politics with you and tear up the Lone Star State.  Elsewhere, former President Barack Hussein Obama slams those seeking to ‘defund the police,’ calling them ‘crazy.’   Speaking of the police, the Fraternal Order of Police reports that in 2020, 283 cops have been shot across the country with an astounding number of 44 killed in action.  This is not good and it must stop.  In Seattle, lawmakers plan to slash the Seattle Police Department’s budget for 2021 by 18-percent all the while homicides within the city are skyrocketing.  So far this year, 55 people have been murdered in the city.  In Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota, violent car-jackings are up by a whopping 537 percent.  
  67. 2020 Tuesday H: Famed economist Walter E. Williams died at age 84 today.  He taught his final class at George Mason University the previous evening.  A famed economist, he authored numerous books on both economics as well as race and intersections between the two.  In the past, he used to occasionally host the Rush Limbaugh Program and was beloved by millions of his fans.

  44. 2014 Friday: A day after closing the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, Israeli authorities reopen it but apply restrictions to Muslim men seeking to pray at the site.  The reason for the crackdown on the Muslims is that some terrorists murdered Israeli activist Yehuda Glick.    Meanwhile, commercial space tourism suffered a setback when a prototype rocket, Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo blew up during a test flight, scattering debris over the Mojave Desert and killing one pilot while injuring the other.

  47. 2017 Tuesday: In New York City, a terrorist POS named Sayfullo Saipov drove a truck into a crowd of pedestrians enjoying a bike path along the Hudson River.  He murdered 8 and wounded 11.  Once the truck stopped, he jumped out screaming “Allah Akbar!” before a cop shot him in the gut.  In Game 6 of the 2017 World Series, the Los Angeles Dodgers recover from a Game 5 loss of 13-12 by beating the Houston Astros to tie the series at three games apiece.  Both starters found themselves knocked out of the game, Dodger pitcher Rich Hill leaving after 4-2/3 innings and Astros pitcher Jason Verlander leaving after six.        
  48. 2018 Wednesday: After she spent eight years on the nation’s death row, the Pakistani high court acquits a Christian woman who supposedly blasphemed the Prophet Muhmmad.  It took a great deal of public outrage around the world to get the Pakistanis to go easy on her but we believe she had to flee the country lest violent Islamist mobs mete out ‘Islamic justice’ to her.
  49. 2019 Thursday: In a blow to its prestige, the Democrat-controlled U.S. House of Representatives under the control of senile Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi votes to launch formal impeachment charges against President Donald J. Trump over the phone call he had earlier in the year with new Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in which, he asked him to complete the investigation that “Pro-China Joe” Biden had managed to get squelched investigating his son, Hunter, and Burisma, a corrupt energy money-laundering operation.  A year later, these actions would come back to bite the Democrats on their asses.   Elsewhere, the remnants of ISIS, on the run around the world, choose a new loser to be their next leader after Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was killed in a U.S. Special Forces strike- Abu Ibrahim al-Hashemi al-Qurashi, another POS not long for this world…
  50. 2020 Saturday: First, the world has suffered a great loss: actor Sean Connery, 90, died in his sleep after battling a prolonged illness.   Queen Elizabeth knighted him in 2000 for his contributions to film industry.  Next, the DEA has taken charge of a second Hunter Biden laptop; this cannot be good either for him or for his father’s campaign.  Oh, wait!  Much of the news media is not covering this explosive topic, labeling it ‘Russian disinformation.’  Gee whiz.  Meanwhile, Ivanka Trump raises $13 million for her father’s re-election campaign.  President Trump is crisscrossing the nation holding rally after rally after rally while his opponent, “Pro-China Joe” Biden continues trying to avoid doing many public appearance.  When he does show up, he sounds like the ‘greatest hits album’ of Democratic Party demagogues, babbling on about LABOR, how if you make under $400 thousand per year, you won’t pay higher taxes (yeah, right) but that corporations sure the heck will’ which is bogus because corporations pass tax increases on to you, the customer.
  51. 2020 Saturday A: North Carolina Speaker of the House Tim Moore says he fears post-election violence is going to break out across the Tarheel State.  He fears all manner of corruption is going to occur as ballots in North Carolina have UP TO NINE DAYS post-election to come in and be counted.  What?  Meanwhile Baseball legend Bobby Richardson says to Newsmax TV that “Trump has to win.”  Also making comments to Newsmax TV is Chris Carr who tells the network that ‘Republicans are voting in person.’  Also to Newsmax TV, Jenna Ellis says post-Election Day, we could see “17 Bush v. Gore-style contested elections” meaning that some states are trying to FIX the elections by making them as big a messes as possible which is not good.    
  52. 2020 Saturday B: Attorney-General Bill Barr informs a friend who informs the news media that he would ‘like to stay on in a second Trump administration.’  Elsewhere, Democratic Party vice-presidential nominee Kamala Harris is the target of more online disinformation (BIG TECH is attempting to erase the fact that she was banging Willie Brown of California’s Assembly to get every political post she has ever achieved in California) that either current Vice President Mike Pence or the 2016 VP nominee for Hillary Clinton, nobody Virginia Senator Tim Kain.  Meanwhile, the U.S. State Department announces that the hellhole nation of Iran is targeting various state elections systems in trying to sow confusion, anger, and other disinformation.  F**k them.  Time to send some neutron bombs in the direction of Tehran.
  53. 2020 Saturday C: In a recent speech in Iowa, “Pro-China Joe” Biden begins hammering ‘trillionaires’ although no one in the world has yet qualified as one.’  You go, Joe, you go, tax them trillionaires out of existence.  Meanwhile, nuns supporting President Trump have become victims of far left Democrats who are doxing them and spreading not only their information online but slanderous lies and bull crap.  (Note- to POTUS: when the election is over, beef up the penalties for crimes such as these).   Elsewhere, a federal appeals court rules that BOTH Texas voters and election workers do not have to wear masks at polling places.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Jeff Lynne’s Electric Light Orchestra released their next album, “Live in Hyde Park” on December 10, 2015.  The group did some shows for the BBC and this one was in support of their previous studio album, “Alone in the Universe.”  Not having attended the show, we have no clue as to what the length of it was; however, what we do know is that this is a somewhat abbreviated set.  I mean, WTF would you not include the tune that made you famous around the world, “Roll Over Beethoven,” as an encore, one you crank out for 8-12 minutes?  It makes NO sense.  Please, investigate this one to your own fulfillment and then decide if it’s right for you.  We thank you.

296. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, OCTOBER 22, 2020

U. 1942 Thursday: The first troop ships sail out of Scotland, bound for Vichy French territory in Algeria and at the port city of Oran. The Allies were underway with driving the Axis out of North Africa. On the Eastern Front, fighting in Stalingrad continues to rage as the Germans are in a position to seize the Red October and Barricades factories while the other tractor factory also is within their grasp. According to historian Geoffrey Jukes, the toll is horrendous with the Germans losing one full division every five days or less while Russian units- 37th Guards, 308th and 193rd Infantry Divisions of the 82nd Army could field little more than two hundred men.

  60. 2020 Thursday A: Tonight is the final debate between candidates Donald J. Trump and “Pro-China Joe” Biden.  Ahead of the debate, the president releases excerpts from an interview he did with Leslie Stahl of “60 Minutes” fame, leading her network to go ballistic.  He points out that the difference between his interview with the decrepit, aging newswoman and the one his opponent did with another interviewer was like night and day.  Why these people have so much hate toward the current president is beyond many people’s comprehension.  Speaking of President Trump, Rasmussen says the commanding lead of 12 points or more that “Pro-China Joe” Biden held as little as two weeks ago is now down to three points.  Not looking good for the Democrats. 
  61. 2020 Thursday B: Facebook’s little Mark Zuckerberg and his clone Jack Dorsey at Twitter (aka ‘Shitter’) receive subpoenas to appear before the Senate and to answer questions as to why they are such left-wing POS who believe they can control the flow of information.  They have allowed every hateful piece of disinformation on President Donald J. Trump to appear uncensored but anyone talking about “Pro-China Joe” Biden or his crackhead son, Hunter, you get ‘disappeared.’  This BS must stop.

  65. 2020 Thursday F: Here’s the Thursday Night Football Game: (1) New York Giants, 21 7 (1-6) @ Philadelphia Eagles, 22 10 (2-4-1) at the Half.
  66. 2020 Thursday G: The final presidential debate is in the books and it was a good one.  We must say to Kristen Welker- the moderator- that she did a stellar job and that that POS Chris Wallace could learn much from her.  Both men held their own, loads of information was delivered, and it is up to everyone to determine whom they believe to be more truthful and whom they believe to be the winner.  We will find out on November 3.
  67. 2020 Thursday H: We always encourage everyone to stick around and find out with us whatever it is the Beijing bullies and their Democratic Party flunkies are up to today- you know they are doing something to steal the election…
