  55. 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.
  56. 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.
  57. 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. 
  58. 2020 Monday: Tropical Storm Beta is expected to attain hurricane status when it arrives on the Texas gulf coast at some point 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. 
  59. 2020 Monday A: 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.
  60. 2020 Monday B: 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.
  61. 2020 Monday C: Famed NBA star and noted ‘genius’ LeBron “Full of Fecal Matter” 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.
  62. 2020 Monday D: 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.   
  63. 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 Rep. James Clyburn is the conduit through which the alleged cash flow goes.  Think about it: Biden was at the bottom of the Democrats’ heap 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.

  74. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– A report says that another 6,000 Haitians are tramping north through Mexico to Bidenville under the Del Rio, Texas, overpass.  This sounds like a job for napalm.  Just saying.  Anyhow, violence is breaking out in towns in their path as the Haitians fight one another to get on any available transportation north.  Here are the numbers from One America News for today.  First, here is the cost for caring for the invaders for just this day: $533,574,040.  Second, here is the cost for this year of caring for Joe Biden’s new citizens: $288,752,762,880.  Here are the numbers of illegals who have swarmed across the U.S.-Mexico border for 2021: 2,959,484.  Fourth and final, here are the numbers- conservative ones, mind you, of the illegals lurking in the country as you read this: 36,959,484.  We believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million illegal aliens.  Speaking of this disaster, today is Day No. 180 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of defending the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 87 since she visited the border.  Where can we get a ‘no-show job’ like the one this loser has?  (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).
  75. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, says of Joe Biden that he ‘doesn’t even pretend on the border’ meaning he does not tell us everything is good and well when every American sees it for him-or-herself on live TV.  As the border continues its implosion, Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-TX 1st congressional district, lambasted Joe Biden today and said of his border policies that they are ‘ridiculous.’  Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, calls the lack of a sound policy, “Insane.”
  76. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Russian President Vladimir Putin won’t be coming to New York City to attend the U.N. General Assembly.  No, he will get his message across via diplomatic channels.  Speaking of Russia, we learned today that the Federal Bureau of Investigation delayed helping the victims of the recent Russian hacking attacks.  The question is, “WHY?”  Next Portugal has granted the Afghan girls’ soccer team asylum as their home country continues to implode under Islamism.  Meanwhile, up in Canada, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau- son of one of the Rolling Stones- manages to cling to power at the head of a minute minority drastically weakened by his ignorant policies.  To get things done, the communist PM will have to engage with other political parties.  This should be fun.
  77. 2021 Tuesday I: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $43.92 (2) AstraZeneca $59.13 (3) Johnson & Johnson $164.53 (4) BioNTech $341.35 (5) Moderna $434.04.  Even as the FDA says there is NO need for Chi-Vi booster shots, Johnson & Johnson now claims that their new booster shot is ’94-percent effective.’  How can they claim this when their original shot was down in the mid-forties?  There has not been enough time for them even to know so we encourage everyone to avoid the Johnson & Johnson shots as if their lives depended upon it.
  78. 2021 Tuesday J: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $83.11 (2) General Dynamics: $191.19 (3) Boeing: $208.51 (4) Lockheed Martin: $336.05 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $345.14.

  81. 2021 Tuesday M: Joe Biden News I- Joe Biden delivered a canned speech to the United Nations today.  It would appear he took some of his anti-senility medicine, some of son Hunter’s crack as he was able to get through it without completely breaking down.  He called on world leaders to ‘pull together to solve global problems’ all the while giving them the nod-nod, wink-wink to send Third World castoffs to invade the United States.  Speaking of feeble Joe, a new poll shows that 62-percent of Iowans think that Joe is doing a horrible job.  Add to that the fact that the House Dems are seeking to limit the poor old fool’s presidential powers.  You know, the Dems would love to transform the presidency into a prime ministerial gig.
  82. 2021 Tuesday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– Joy of joys!  The White House is rolling a new plan with which to combat homelessness.  Wow.  Meanwhile, as the various multi-trillion bills continue bumping up against the deadlines, the House Dems throw Joe Biden a bone by passing a stopgap spending bill that will keep the American government open until December 01, 2021.  Wow.   In other shocking news, the House Dems stripped funding from the bills they are trying to shove through to Joe Biden’s desk that will go to helping Israel protect itself with the Iron Dome missile defense system.
  83. 2021 Tuesday O: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation- A Customs and Border Patrol officer who attended the Justice for January 6 rally won’t be charged.  Still, Rep. Adam “Bug Eyes” Schiff, DS-CA 28th congressional district, says the committee charged with ‘investigating’ the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021, could possibly go directly to sending out subpoenas which means they want to tarnish the reputations of many, patriotic Americans while continuing to vilify President Donald J. Trump.  Oooh, scary, “Bug Eyes.”
  84. 2021 Tuesday P: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Well-known government apparatchik and professor, Anthony Codevilla, died today at age 78.  He is best remembered over his strenuous objections to the life sentence imposed on Jonathan Pollard, the man who handed classified intelligence over to U.S. ally, Israel.  Pollard eventually was released on parole in 2015 and after fulfilling the obligations imposed upon him, he emigrated to Israel.
  85. 2021 Tuesday Q: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1696 what with a $x million jackpot on the line: 36, 41, 45, 51, 56, and Mega 13.  Out of 150,280 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $18,952 apiece.  In Washington state where Chef Vladdie lives, one person got all five numbers and the Mega for a prize of $432,000,000.
  86. 2022 Wednesday: Friends, whenever we call the Chi-Coms out our numbers tend to suffer but I am going to continue with my thoughts anyway on the outcome of a Chi-Com invasion of Taiwan.  Most of us here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM tend to believe that Taiwan- FREE CHINA- is an undeclared nuclear power and why not?  Back on September 22, 1979, which is tomorrow, a U.S. satellite detected a double flash in the South Atlantic well below South Africa.  Most surmise it was a nuclear weapons test either by South Africa or Israel or possibly a joint operation.  We, however, believe Taiwan was the nation conducting the test and much evidence points in that direction.  It would make sense that a technologically superior Taiwan was working at building a clandestine nuclear weapons program because at some point in the future, the Chi-Coms would come-a-calling being the bullies that they are.  We suspect any approaching invasion fleet would find itself in deep trouble if underwater nukes were detonated several yards beneath the flotilla.  Virtually every vessel, submarine, and troop transport in the area would be swamped with tsunamis the likes of which the world has never witnessed.  Aircraft carriers, warships, transports, virtually an entire fleet would disappear along with every soldier, sailor, marine, and airman as did the Mongol fleet that disappeared in a massive tsunami while attempting to invade Japan centuries ago.  This would be enough to cause Xi Jinping and his cronies to be strung up in the streets and who knows?  Perhaps freedom would return to the mainland and peace in Asia ensue?  Sure, at some point the world needs to obliterate that overweight hog, Kim Jong-Un but that little POS is a piker compared to Chairman Xi, the wannabe world dictator.  Let me know your mind- Chef Kilgore Randalini.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Cheap Trick delivered its next studio album- “Standing on the Edge”- on July 19, 1985.  The album featured their original producer Jack Douglas back at the control panel.  Once again, the band delivered a spirited group of rockers and of course their pop-ballads.  “Tonight, It’s You” received a great deal of airplay and is among the best tunes the band has ever done.  The lineup remains Robin Zander (lead vocals and rhythm guitar), Rick Nielsen (lead and rhythm guitars, backing vocals), Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion), and Jon Brant (bass, backing vocals).  Joining the Illinois-based rockers is Mark Radice on keyboards.  We hope everyone will seek this album out at their favorite site for the absolute best in music because let’s face it: the AICPENDBLOG.COM offers nothing but the best in music.  You won’t find f**king Maroon 5, you won’t find twerking whores, you won’t find has-been lesbians, and you won’t find young men who aren’t sure as to whether they are men or chicks.  It is what it is and we thank you for joining us here daily.

  60. 2015 Saturday: In the deserts of western Egypt, Egyptian military forces mistake a group of tourists for jihadis and light them up, killing at least 12 and injuring others.  Meanwhile, Indian troops cross the border into a territory claimed by communist China to dismantle a watchtower the Chi-Coms were building too close to an agreed-upon demarcation line between the two countries.
  61. 2016 Monday: As the battle for the White House heats up, the Obama administration puts the dagger to parts of the Dakota Access Pipeline, one that candidate Donald J. Trump says he will approve when he wins the White House in November.  Meanwhile, medical reports on Hillary Clinton say that not only pneumonia had the old gal down but also dehydration which the Trump campaign put to use against her.
  62. 2017 Tuesday: Following a stint in an interim role, Hope Hicks wins promotion to permanent White House Communications Director.  Elsewhere, forever angry Hillary Clinton releases her long-anticipated book on how she lost the 2016 Presidential Election.  “What Happened” laid out what she saw as her downfall and left her readers in suspense as to whether she would make another go of it in 2020.  Next, the U.S. Supreme Court rules in favor of President Donald J. Trump’s ban on visitors, immigrants, and refugees from countries with loads of Islamic extremism or communists.
  63. 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!  Speaking of Germany, leaks from a massive report into Catholic Church-child sexual abuse says that between 1946-2014, more than 3,600 children suffered at the hands of deviate priests.
  64. 2019 Thursday: The U.S. Supreme Court allows the latest Trump asylum ban to take effect along the southern border where mobs of desperate illegal aliens have been trying to cross and get into the innards of the country.  Everyone knows the Democratic Party is eager to have as many illegals as possible in the country so they can mistreat them while forcing them to vote Democrat.  Thank God the court finally upheld one of the president’s attempts to get control of the border.
  65. 2020 Saturday: Today, the mullahs of Iran condemn Bahrain for making peace with Israel, whining about the sad situation of the Palestinian people.  Why don’t you send the Palestinian Authority some money then, Tehran, it’s obvious you don’t care about these losers.  STFU!  Speaking of Iran, they send wrestler Navid Afkari to the crane to be hung by the neck until dead, despite pleas from around the world to spare the man’s life.  The Iranians claim he stabbed someone during protests across the country in 2018 but most people of sound mind highly doubt this set-up story   Elsewhere, Sen. Bernie Sanders, D-VT, expresses doubts about “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s ability to appeal to far-left voters.  Look, JOBI cannot appeal to anyone.   Finally, Nora Dannehy is reassigned from the Durham investigation to another post claiming that Attorney General Bill Barr is leaning on the head of the probe to have an outcome prior to the 2020 Elections.  We wait with bated breath.

  76. 2022 Monday:  Observation of the Day– Friends, I do not know about you but do you think the ‘war in Ukraine’ is something more than just one thug invading the country of another?  Did not the drooling dimwit of deceitfulness tell us that he was going to break Russia, break the Ruble, and break the war machine via the ‘sanctions’ he and his stooges in the European Union imposed on Moscow?  I remember hearing something akin to that yet the only ones being broken are the United States and the Europeans.  Gasoline costs will skyrocket even higher than they were once the artificial price adjustments return to normal all the while the Europeans are scrambling around trying to find energy sources other than wood and coal, sources we could provide them if our president weren’t a worthless POS.  It seems to me the ‘war in Ukraine’ is more about destroying our and the EU’s economy than it is about destroying Putin’s ability to make war.  The worse things become the more likely people will accept socialism, something none of us but a cadre of young, dumb idiots want because they do not understand the ramifications of embracing such a political-social-economic system that in the end will crush them, not help them.  Add to that the billions of dollars Cho-Mo Joe Biden continues sending overseas and one can see all the graft he and his worthless family are skimming off the top, yet another Money-Go-Round.  Folks, we need to get rid of every mother**king Democrat come November and to replace them with MAGA CONSERVATIVES.  It is the only hope for our nation and for our posterity.  Chef James “Jimmy” Hall.
  77. 2022 Monday A: NFL 2022-2023 Season Week One: In Seattle, Washington, the Denver Broncos (0-0-0) with new quarterback, Russell Wilson, are going to play the Seahawks (0-0-0).  We shall see.

Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

One of the all-time great American rock bands, Cheap Trick, formed in Rockford, Illinois, back in the early 1970s.  Through hard touring and numerous performances, the band landed a recording contract and released their first album, the self-titled, “Cheap Trick” on February 03, 1977.  The band features the quartet of Rick Nielsen (guitars, backing vocals), Robin Zander (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Tom Petersson (bass, backing vocals), and Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion).  Much of the 1970s featured 1960s rock bands working hard to hang on to their perches because the Disco phase was destroying those that could not.  Most rock fans had only the Rolling Stones, the Who, the Faces, the Kinks, Led Zeppelin, and Aerosmith to hold onto so by the time Cheap Trick exploded onto the scene with the Cars, the Knack, and a few others, it was as if the rock gods were smiling on us once again.  This album contains two major classics, “Elo Kiddies” and “Taxman, Mr. Thief.”  Every song with the exception of one is written by guitarist Nielsen.  Please, seek this album out and add it to your growing collection of musical classics.  You will be extremely glad you did.

  18. 1944 Thursday: The Royal Air Force drops 2,300 tons of bombs on the Nazi capital of Berlin.  Elsewhere, on the Eastern Front, German positions around Leningrad are becoming untenable.  In some areas as they attempt to withdraw, Soviet gunners turn the artillery that had been bombarding the historic city for more than two years on them as they retreat.  To the south, the fight to reduce the Cherkassy pocket- dubbed by the Germans as the “Witches Cauldron”- continued, a battle that began on Christmas Eve and still was raging.  Ordered by Hitler to stand and fight, the Germans were trying to figure how to pull out of the ‘cauldron’ before they ended up like their comrades in Stalingrad did the previous year: annihilated.

  45. 2001 Saturday: George Walker Bush became America’s 43rd president after one of the most turbulent elections in U.S. history.  His second-in-command, Vice President Richard “Dick” Cheney- a man who would propel the U.S. into two, extremely unnecessary wars, took his oath, too.  (Many believed that VP Cheney was calling the shots from behind the curtain).  
  46. 2003 Monday: Secretary of State Colin Powell, faced with stiff resistance and calls for caution, bluntly told the Security Council that the U.N. “must not shrink” from its responsibility to disarm Saddam Hussein’s Iraq.  Caricaturist Al Hirschfeld died in New York at age 99.  Pollster Burns W. “Bud” Roper died on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, at age 77.

  51. 2013 Sunday: President Barack Obama undergoes his second inauguration in the Blue Room of the White House marking the beginning of his second term in office.  His second-in-command, Vice President Joseph R. Biden, also takes his oath.  In 2020, Biden would run for president.

  53. 2015 Tuesday: U.S. President Barack Obama gives his State of the Union address, promoting free community college education, increased capital gains taxes on the rich, more paid time off for employees, and greater tax credits for the middle class.  Elsewhere, as violence continues across Yemen, Houthi rebels storm the presidential palace in Sana’a.
  54. 2016 Wednesday: Both NASA and NOAA announce that 2015 WAS THE HOTTEST YEAR ON RECORD since records began being kept in 1890.  This, of course, becomes a common refrain year after year after year as the Climate Change alarmists continue screeching, “THE SKY IS FALLING, THE SKY IS FALLING,” yet, the sky NEVER FALLS.  Meanwhile, Caltech scientists release more ‘evidence’ that there could very well be a ‘Planet NINE’ on the outer edges of the Solar System, far beyond the Kuiper Belt. 
  55. 2017 Friday: Following the oath taken by Vice President-elect Mike Pence to become the nation’s 48th vice president, Donald Trump took the oath of office as the 45th president of the United States, pledging emphatically to empower America’s ‘forgotten men and women.’  Protesters registered their rage against the new president in a chaotic confrontation with police just blocks from the inaugural parade, screaming, crying, melting down, and some such as Madonna threatening to blow up the White House.  What a bunch of leftist trash.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Senate confirms the first two Cabinet picks of President Trump- James “Mad Dog” Mattis to become his secretary for defense and John Kelly to head Homeland Security, both of whom are former generals. 
  56. 2017 Friday A:  Across the world in Syria, ISIS destroys portions of the ancient Roman amphitheater in Palmyra by blowing it up with TNT.   Behead this murderous scum.  Elsewhere in Syria, either U.S. or Russian warplanes carry out an airstrike on ISIS positions west of Aleppo killing at least 40 or more thugs and wounding loads of others.
  57. 2018 Saturday: In St. Albans, Hertfordshire, bass player with the Zombies[xii], Argent, and the Kinks[xiii]– Jim Rodford- died in a fall at his home on this date; he was 76-years-old.  Meanwhile, a dispute in Congress over spending and immigration forced scores of federal government agencies and outposts to close their doors; federal officials turned tourists away from sites such as the Statue of Liberty and Philadelphia’s Independence Hall.  However, two days later, Congress voted to temporarily pay for resumed operations.  On the anniversary of President Donald J. Trump’s inauguration, left-wing demonstrators in cities across the country marched in support of female empowerment and denounced Trump’s (suspected but unproven) views on immigration, LGBT rights, and other issues.  Widespread belief is that POS such as Georgy Soros and Tom Steyer, among others, fund these crackpot demonstrations.
  58. 2019 Sunday: In the NFC Championship Game, the visiting Los Angeles Rams stun the home team favorite New Orleans Saints in OT by a final score of 26-23.   In the AFC Championship Game, the visiting New England Patriots beat the Kansas City Chiefs, also in OT, by a final score of 37-31.  Elsewhere, the march of peace continues.  Following suspension of diplomatic relations in 1972, Chadian President Idriss Deby and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu restore diplomatic relations in Chad’s capital of N’Djamena. Peace is awesome!

  60. 2021 Wednesday:  NOT OUR PRESIDENT, folks: Joseph R. Biden Jr. took the oath of office today as the nation’s 46th president while his heir apparent Kamala Harris took the oath of office as the nation’s 49th vice president.  The oaths they swore are to uphold the U.S. Constitution and all the laws of the United States.  While preaching unity, they insult their political opponents every opportunity they get while GOP leadership in the House and Senate are already brown-nosing the duo.  Disgraceful.   Many Americans are renouncing their GOP membership beginning today including several chef-authors here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM.  We expect to see an avalanche of millions of similarly disgruntled Republicans following in our heels.
  61. 2021 Wednesday A: Senator Lindsey Graham, RINO-SC, a fair-weather Republican if ever one existed says that Mitch McConnell should ‘unequivocally oppose’ the second impeachment of Donald J. Trump, especially now that he’s out of office.  Elsewhere, Donald Trump flew out of Joint Base Andrews to his home in Florida earlier today.  Meanwhile, apparently some knucklehead phoned in a ‘bomb threat’ to the U.S. Supreme Court but all the radical, right-wing, QAnon violence the Democrats swore was going to explode all over the place has not happened.  We see it for what it is, folks, just another attempt at tarring and feathering all Trump supporters.  Finally, both drooling House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi and forever-angry Hillary Rodham Clinton are trying to revive the long-dead strawman of Trump-Russia Collusion when the two should be investigating Communist China-Democratic Party Collusion.
  62. 2021 Wednesday B: Outgoing President Trump issued 70 commutations and 73 pardons including one for Judge Jeannine Pirro’s ex-husband, Al.  Also, in his final hours, the outgoing president issued oil drilling leases in Alaska’s Wildlife Refuge.  Elsewhere, Ret. Gen. Lloyd Austin, ‘President Biden’s’ pick for Defense secretary says he is willing to lift the ban on transgenders serving in the U.S. military, one imposed by the previous administration because of the exorbitant costs transgender service personnel cost the American taxpayers.  Here we go.   A return to identity politics of all types- how soon before ‘furries’ and pedophiles and peeping toms and S & M’ers and multiple-partner marriages and everyone else with any kind of sexual proclivity gets special treatment from the ‘Biden administration?’
  63. 2021 Wednesday C: West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin says that launching infrastructure projects in all 50 states would get the American people back to work and back on their feet.  Sounds great, let’s see it happen.  Meanwhile, SpaceX bought two deep water offshore oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico to convert into space ports.  Elsewhere, Ford and Mazda are recalling 3 million cars due to airbag problems.  Speaking of automobiles, KIA shares are soaring over rumors of electric car production.  We shall see.  Overseas, like the Orwellian figures they are, the Chi-Coms trot out Jack Ma, his first public appearance in months, so the world can see they haven’t offed him yet.  Read “1984” and you will understand WHY this matters.  Finally, ‘President Joe Biden’ sends an immigration overhaul bill to the U.S. Congress that will legalize between 11 and 40 million illegal aliens within the fabric of the country as well as will draw millions more to swamp our constitutional republic.
  64. 2021 Wednesday D: ‘President’ Joe Biden signed 15 executive orders today.  First, he is initiating the return of the United States to the Paris Climate Accord.  Next, he revoked the permit for the Keystone XL Pipeline, much to the horror of our northern neighbor, Canada.  Then, he removed his predecessor’s travel ban on people coming in from mostly Muslim countries with a history of terrorism.  Following that, he signed one strengthening DACA protections for illegal aliens brought here as children.  Speaking of illegals, he is removing the ‘emergency funding’ that diverted U.S. DOD funds to continue building the southern border wall.  He also mandated that in all federal buildings and on all federal lands, masks must be worn at all times.   Another one would also count illegal aliens in the U.S. Census which will enable Democrats to win more House seats because of higher population counts. 
  65. 2021 Wednesday E: ‘President’ Joe Biden also cried out against ‘domestic terrorism,’ ‘white supremacy,’ and other evil things among opposition party members.  He also said he can ‘hear the planet crying out to him.’  What is it about the bogus Climate Change scam liberals continue pushing?  First, if we are to believe in science then everyone should understand that the Sun is the number one driver of ‘climate change’ on every planet in the Solar System blessed with a climate.  In addition to that, millions of bombs were exploded in the previous century, nuclear weapons tests conducted below ground, at ground level, under the ocean, and even in the atmosphere and still, the planet is not dead, nor will it die.  Yet, they continue pushing this bogus scheme because it is a way of fleecing those with money and then redistributing it to wherever they wish.  “Taxing the air” is what they call it…
  66. 2021 Wednesday F: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 96,640,644 confirmed cases, +581,653, 2,068,921, confirmed deaths, +15,537, and 53,267,010 confirmed recoveries, +372,842.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 24,433,486 confirmed cases, up 143,073 from yesterday’s reporting, 404,812 confirmed deaths, UP 1,749, and 10,562,082 confirmed recoveries, UP 51,007.
  67. 2021 Wednesday G: 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: 3,071,119 confirmed cases, 34,443 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases, 325 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 296,363 confirmed cases, 4,020 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Montana: currently, they have 90,255 confirmed cases, 1,094 confirmed deaths, and 84,255 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 575,842 confirmed cases, 4,181 confirmed deaths, and 478,897 confirmed recoveries.  
  68. 2021 Wednesday H:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,188.38, UP 257.86 points (+0.83%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,457.25, UP 260.07 points (+1.97%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,851.85, UP 52.94 points (+1.39%).  The price of GOLD is $1,869.60 per troy oz., +3.10 (-0.17%) while the price of SILVER is $25.90 per troy ounce, +0.134 (+0.52%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,114.50 per troy oz, -1.90 (-0.17%) while the price of COPPER is $3.65 per pound, +0.0045 (+0.12%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,403.20 per troy oz, +38.20 (+1.62%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.96 per barrel, -0.35 (-0.66%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.58.
  69. 2021 Wednesday I: Upon entering the Oval Office, almost immediately, ‘President’ Joe Biden deletes the 1776 Project page from the White House website.  Instead, he will promote the 1619 Project which vilifies the founding of the United States and its history.  It is important to note that today’s Inauguration Day events appeared more like a totalitarian state than they did an American event, the peaceful transfer of power.  Armed soldiers everywhere, hardly any civilians around, in a locked-down, fortified city being patrolled by armed members of the military.  It appears the nation has been overthrown from within.  Meanwhile, the Iranians are licking their chops that they are going to see the reentry of the United States into the flawed, pro-Iranian JCPOA deal.  This will occur almost immediately.
  70. 2021 Wednesday J: Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3527: 05, 08, 15, 21, 37, and Mega 27.  Out of 159,315 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO MEGA number for a prize of $53,831.  The winning ticket was sold at Ironwood Liquor in Moreno Valley, CA 92557.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #813: 40, 53, 60, 68, 69, and Powerball 22.  Out of 537,669 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had ALL SIX NUMBERS for a prize of $730,000,000.  The winning ticket was sold in Maryland.  Next, the next highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Powerball number for a prize of $599,639 apiece.  The two winning tickets were sold at (1) 7/11 in Redlands, CA 92373 and (2) Déjà Vu Liquor in Woodland Hills, CA 91364.  Tomorrow night, the Mega Millions jackpot for Draw #1626 is in the vicinity of $970 million.  Good luck, folks.
  71. 2022 Thursday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Richard Thompson’s next album was a blast from the pass- “In Concert 1975,” an album that hit record store shelves on August 13, 2007.  The album featured not only Richard on guitars and vocals but then-wife, Linda Thompson, on vocals, the amazing John Kirkpatrick on accordions and concertinas, Dave Pegg on the bass, and Dave Mattacks on the drums.  The band rocks through 15 of their wonderful songs, covering both hard rockers and sentimental songs of sadness and longing, and everything in between.  We do hope you will seek this one out and consider adding it to your ever-expanding collection of albums from ‘back in the day’ as compared to the crap one now must listen to on most radio stations like fish-lipped sluts with oversized butts, brain-dead rappers, and chicks with single names and little else to their credit, this is something that will raise your heart from the perverse gutter into which WOKE has shoved everyone’s ears.  Seek it out now and enjoy- you will be so glad you did, of that, we are certain.

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

Wednesday, January 20, 2021, 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…

NOTE- THERE ARE SO MANY U.S. POLITICIANS WHO HAVE ENTERED OR EXITED OFFICE ON JANUARY 20, IT WOULD TAKE US MONTHS TO GET ALL OF THEM ENTERED SO PLEASE BEAR WITH US…


Thursday, January 20, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We hope to share the music of Poco, sometime in the next decade.  Please remain with us.

[ii] If we are still here in another 20 years or so, you might see the music of Judas Priest, Quiet Riot, Twisted Sister, Iron Maiden, and the rest of the bands from that era. 

[iii] We hope to present the music of KISS sometime in the late 2020s. 

[iv] We promoted “Meet the Beatles” on Monday, 07-November-2016.

[v] Many debate as to WHY Francisco Franco did this.  Many believe it was to curry favor with the Allies as the war went against the Axis while others believed he sought to right the wrongs of Spain’s past.  In the end, his government was able to rescue hundreds of thousands of Sephardi Jews from the gas chambers.

  74. 2020 Thursday: U.S. Intel reports that the Chi-Coms- NOT the Russians- were paying Islamist militants in Afghanistan to murder U.S. military personnel in that s-hole country.  When it was reported the Russians were paying Islamist militants in Afghanistan to do the same thing, Democrats wanted President Donald J.

  77. 2020 Thursday C: Jobless claims in the U.S. drop the second week in a row what with 787,000 new claims.  Elsewhere, serial killer Samuel Little dies in the joint at age 80.  The man is credited with the killings of 93 women from 1970 to 2005.   Meanwhile, the Georgia GOP has recruited 8,000 poll watchers who plan to observe every facet of the elections next week.  We shall see if they will be bullied again.  Finally, a tornado touched down briefly in Corsicana, Texas, destroying several homes.

  79. 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.

  81. 2020 Thursday G: In Verona, Pennsylvania, former 76th U.S. Attorney General Richard “Dick” Thornburg died at the age of 88.  A Republican, he served under President Ronald Reagan from August 12, 1985, to August 15, 1991.  Prior to this, he would serve his nation as its 71.1st Acting U.S. attorney general.  In this capacity, he served President Gerald R. Ford from January 20, 1977, to January 26, 1977.
  82. 2021 Friday: 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…anyhow, have a safe and sane New Year’s Eve and Day.  God bless, see you all tomorrow.

  77. 2021 Saturday F: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE I- For the hard-working ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, today is Day No. 205 since she has held this job and Day No. 112 since she has shown up to do it.  How sad.  Here are the numbers as shared by One America News today.  First, the cost of caring for illegal aliens for just this day: $566,337,024.  Imagine that.  Imagine what all this money could do for homeless U.S. veterans.  Imagine.  It would be life-altering.  Next, here is the taxpayer dollars spent for caring for all these illegal aliens this year: $316,182,855,680.  Shocking to say the least.  Next, here is the number of illegal aliens who have swamped the border just this year: 3,240,621.  Fourth and final, here is the conservative low estimate of the number of illegal aliens roaming the country as we speak: 37,240,620.  IF we deported this number, wages would go up, benefits would be better, rents and mortgages would plummet, and hospitals and schools would be back to instructing American kids.  American children would not be kept at the snail’s pace they now are as instead of putting the illegal alien snots in their own classes, they stuff them in with our kids which lowers the pace of learning for them.  This ain’t right.  (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).

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by Fairport Convention was the first NOT to include a single founding member of the group other than in GUEST appearances.  “Rosie” came out on March 12, 1973, and the lineup now 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) and (5) Dave Mattacks (drums, percussion, and piano).  The guests include (6) Richard Thompson (guitars) (7 and 8) Sandy Denny and Linda Peters (vocals) (9-10) Gerry Conway and Tim Donald (drums) and Ralph Tell (acoustic guitars).  It is always interesting to watch bands evolve and this one would be undergoing evolution for quite a while and let us tell you, this is a superb album, one we encourage everyone to rush out, give a good listen, and then add it to your overflowing collection of nothing but the absolute best in English folk-English folk-rock music.  You will be glad you did.

  70. 2020 Thursday C: Jobless claims in the U.S. drop the second week in a row what with 787,000 new claims.  Elsewhere, serial killer Samuel Little dies in the joint at age 80.  The man is credited with the killings of 93 women from 1970 to 2005.   Meanwhile, the Georgia GOP has recruited 8,000 poll watchers who plan to observe every facet of the elections next week.  We shall see if they will be bullied again.  Finally, a tornado touched down briefly in Corsicana, Texas, destroying several homes.
  71. 2020 Thursday D: Here are the latest stats for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, straight out of the fetid bowels of the world’s lone communist semi-superpower: 83,338,512 confirmed cases, UP by 827,952 cases, 1,815,864 confirmed deaths, UP by 15,464 deaths, and 46,993,335 confirmed recoveries, UP by 353,269 recoveries from yesterday’s figures.  Here are the numbers for the United States (SAME AS YESTERDAY’S): 19,910,674 confirmed cases, UP by 197,630 new cases, 344,877 confirmed deaths, UP by 3,693 new deaths, and 8,757,150 confirmed recoveries, UP by 94,066 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt POSs).  Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 416,584 confirmed cases, 3,307 confirmed deaths, and 372,284 confirmed recoveries.
  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.
  73. 2020 Thursday F:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,606.48, UP 196.92 points (+0.65%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,888.28, UP 18.28 points (+0.14%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,756.07, UP 24.03 points (+0.64%).  The price of GOLD is $1,895.10 per troy oz., -3.50 (-0.18%) while the price of SILVER is $26.41 per troy ounce, -0.413 (-1.54%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,079.20 per troy oz, -3.00 (-0.28%) while the price of COPPER is $3.52 per pound, -0.0255 (-0.72%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,453.80 per troy oz, +75.40 (+3.17%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $48.52 per barrel, +0.22 (+0.46%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.53 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.88.  In other economic news, the IMF says that should be used to determine an individual’s credit scores…WTF?  Meanwhile, tomorrow, 20 states will be raising their minimum wage.
  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.
