Trump threatens to strip temporary protected status from 250,000 El Salvadorans lurking within the shadows of the United States.  Time to go.  In the same vein, President Trump is meeting with lawmakers to discuss funding for the border wall and an end to DREAMERS in the U.S.  Elsewhere, at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, the College Football National Championship goes to #4 Alabama who beats #3 Georgia by a final score of 26-23.

Rosenstein says that he will leave his post once a new attorney general undergoes confirmation.  Elsewhere, federal prosecutors accuse former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort of having passed campaign information to ‘Russian operatives.’
  63. 2020 Wednesday: President Trump tells the assembled media that ‘As long as he is president, Iran will NEVER have nuclear weapons.’  The president also urged NATO to take a greater role in the Middle East while encouraging all other signatories of the Iran Nuclear Deal- including Russia and China- to bail out.  In addition to that, President Trump promised even more sanctions against the Iranian regime with the desired purpose of having the dictatorship return to the society of nations.  Defense and intelligence officials brief Congress on the missile barrage the Iranians shot off in the vicinity of U.S. targets in Iraq.  Sparse damage was sustained, and no lives were lost although Radio Tehran bragged about 80 or more American casualties.   Some Democrats continue labeling President Trump an ‘assassin’ while most Americans believe what he did to be justified.  
  64. 2021 Friday: It appears that Democrats are cowering in their corners over what President Donald J. Trump ‘might do in the days remaining to him.’  Could he release all sorts of data on “Pro-China Joe” Biden, the Democrat leadership, and others and their close ties to the Chi-Coms?  Hence why the Dems are urging Vice President Mike Pence to commune with the Cabinet (members leaving as we speak) so they can use the 25th Amendment to remove the 45th president (Pence won’t) or why they are proclaiming they are going to launch a second impeachment against President Trump in the less than two weeks remaining in his term.  In the same vein, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi spoke to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff- General Mark A. Milley to see if he would prohibit President Trump from launching nuclear barrages against the Chi-Coms, Iran, and other enemies of the U.S.  Wow.  Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal Editorial board says, ‘Trump should resign now.’
  65. 2021 Friday A: “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his wife, Jill, announce their first priority on entering the White House is to spend $1.2 million taxpayer dollars to renovate the bathrooms in the private residence.  Uh, okay, extremely important.  “Let them eat cake,” says Dr. Jill.  Next, ‘Vice President-elect Kooky Kamala’ Harris is taking heat from people across the board for her lambasting the purported Trump supporters’ riot on Capitol Hill on Wednesday when she encourage Black Lives Matter and Antifa to riot all summer, fall, and into the winter.  What a VP choice, folks, what a VP choice.   Speaking of violence, U.S. Catholic bishops condemn Wednesday’s riots.  Finally, the Boston bomber is suing the federal government over the prison restrictions forced upon him.
  66. 2021 Friday B:  Extreme intellect LeBron James says, “We live in two Americas.”  Yes, indeed, and you, you big POS, live in the upper crust one.  STFU.  Note of interest: we learned late last night that Marxist Chicago ‘Priest’ Father Michael Pfleger friend of Barack Hussein Obama- is stepping down from the priesthood seeing as how there are now allegations of child sexual abuse against him.  Oh, how the mighty fall.  On a humorous note, Senator Lindsey Graham, RINO Republican from South Carolina, receives loads of catcalls and negative rhetoric as he tries to head to his plane at Reagan International Airport.   About flipping time!  Finally, we learn that chief of staff to Vice President Mike Pence- Mark Strong- is the one who urged the VP not to fight the certification of the 2020 Presidential Election.  He is now barred from entering the White House grounds.  Remember that name: Mark Strong.  He hopes both he and VP Pence will have bought a future in mainstream Washington, D.C. politics.  (Note- President Trump is not going to attend the Biden-Harris inauguration but Mr. Pence will.  Florida Senator Rick Scott is also encouraging the 45th president to attend.  WHY?).  Speaking of maggots- former chief of staff General John Kelly, U.S. Army Ret., says he ‘would vote to remove Trump.’ 
  67. 2021 Friday C: President Trump awards the medal of freedom to three golfers- Annika Sorenstam, Gary Player, and Babe Zaharias.   Meanwhile, Ronna McDaniel is elected to another term as chair of the Republican National
    Committee whereas Hope Hicks says she is leaving next week.  Larry Kudlow and U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin are both remaining to the end of Trump’s term.    Next, President Trump promises to be a GIANT VOICE for his followers, all 77-80 million of them.  Finally, Simon and Schuster cancels Senator Josh Hawley’s book deal following his role in contesting the election results (which all the losers- both right and left- are using as an excuse to jump ship).
  68. 2021 Friday D: The U.S. has lost 140,000 jobs, the first monthly loss since the spring when government told us ‘we need to shut everything down for two weeks so we can flatten the curve.’  Result: a destroyed economy.  Elsewhere, Dodgers’ longtime player and manager Tommy Lasorda dead at age 93.  God bless you, Tommy!  Thank you for 1988!  Meanwhile, Elon Musk becomes the richest man in the world with $195 billion which is 10 billion more than Amazon.com owner Jeff Bezos.  Finally, Georgia U.S. Senator David Perdue follows in the footsteps of fellow Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler and concedes to his opponent, Sinophile and far-left-left-left Democrat Jon Ossoff.  It is over and it is done.
  69. 2021 Friday E: Former Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, U.S. Army Ret., and former national security adviser finds himself banned from Twitter.  U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the “U.S. is not a banana republic.” Elsewhere, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau blasts Trump for ‘inciting an assault on democracy.’ Mind your own business, twerp.  Meanwhile, the Rupert Murdoch empire calls for Trump to go but seeks to cling to the Trump base.  Finally, a report says that pipe bombs delivered to the RNC, and the DNC contained timing devices.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Castle Music label compiled a ‘best of’ collection for Sandy Denny that came out on April 12, 2005: “Where the Time Goes- Sandy ‘67.”  The album features a collection of 18 glorious tracks running from her earliest days prior to her association with Fairport Convention, Fotheringay, and Fairport Convention again and prior to her final solo career.  Thus, you get lots of acoustic Sandy mostly alone but with others including a unique collaboration with the Strawbs, another folkie acoustical group from the UK.  We hope you will investigate this one for yourselves, give it a good listen, and then consider adding it to your growing collection of music from this devoted vocalist and songwriter.  You will be so glad you did.  Enjoy.

Friday, January 08, 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…


Saturday, January 08, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] When the time will be right for the presentation of Elvis Presley is unknown but if we are still going strong in the 2030s, we expect to do so.  Please, stay tuned.

[ii] We hope to present the music of the Nice as well as Emerson, Lake & Palmer at some point within the next five years.  Please remain posted for the day that we do.

[iii] We promoted the music of the Doors, the famed Los Angeles, California, hard rocking psychedelic band beginning on Saturday, 18-February-2012 through 02-April-2012.  We hope you will seek this legendary band out and consider adding it to your ever-growing collection.

[iv] We shared the music of the Hollies with the world beginning on Monday, 29-August-2016 through Thursday, 03-November-2016.

[v] 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.

[vi] We promoted the music of the Who and of its individual band members beginning on Monday, 03-August-2015 through Sunday, 29-November-2015.  We hope you will seek out the music of this veteran British band as well as of Pete Townsend, John Entwistle, Keith Moon, and Roger Daltrey.  We know you will enjoy them.

[vii] We presented the music of the Kinks, as well as of Ray and Dave Davies, beginning on Monday, 22-December-2014 through Sunday, 15-March-2015.  We hope you will check out the music of this original British invasion band as they are as relevant today as they were more than 50 years ago.  Sure beats the hell out of Maroon Five.

343. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, DECEMBER 09, 2021

65. 2020 Wednesday A: Now that many believe “Pro-China Joe” Biden is the ‘president-elect,’ illegal alien caravans are forming in Central America, preparing to head north to storm the U.S.-Mexico border into the U.S. Vice President Biden has already promised to legalize millions of illegal aliens lurking within the shadows of the country so why wouldn’t millions more seek to flood into the country?

  59. 2015 Wednesday: The FBI says that the husband-and-wife shooters in San Bernardino, California, were ‘radicalized years earlier’ and that ‘no evidence exists of ties to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.’  Of course, this is the “James Comey-run FBI” which never sees ties between radical Islam and jihadists in the U.S.
  60. 2016 Friday: The Obama CIA concludes with ‘high confidence’ that Russia interfered in the 2016 Presidential Election to get Donald Trump elected.  Of course, this is little more than bulls**t engineered by CIA Director (and former member of the CPUSA) John Brennan and his boss, President Barack Hussein Obama.   President-elect Donald Trump brushes this bogus report off.
  61. 2017 Saturday: After more than three years of combat operations, Iraq announced that the fight against the Islamic State group was over, and that Iraq’s security forces had driven the extremist scum from all of the territory it once held.  The search for Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi continues.     
  62. 2018 Sunday: Poland, a nation that relies on coal, is witnessing massive protests at a summit on Climate Change.  Liberals are running amok screaming and crying about a ‘dying planet’ and all the rest of the claptrap they believe.   Look, after ALL the bombs dropped in the previous century and all the nuclear weapons tests in the atmosphere, on the ground, below ground, and in the oceans across the world, the planet is alive and well.
  63. 2019 Monday: Democrats and their Fake News Media allies are rubbing their hands in glee today as today is the BIG REVEAL of the articles of impeachment against President Donald J. Trump.  Oh, they are giddy, confidant of success, believing they can convince the GOP to toss the 45th president onto the dung heap of history… elsewhere, India’s lower house passes a bill forbidding citizenship to Muslims.  Sounds like they are listening to President Trump…oh, wait, he never said that.  No, he just wanted to forbid them entry to the U.S.
  64. 2020 Wednesday:  In the ongoing struggle with the Chi-Coms, Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe and U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo continue pointing out the danger that communist China poses to the United States.  In the same vein, Congressman Andy Biggs, R-AZ, points out that not only is “Pro-China Joe” Biden in bed with the Chi-Coms, so is his family.   Speaking of Arizona, the FBI raids a home in Maricopa County recovering computer hard drives and zip drives that may have been used in the 2020 Presidential Election fraud.  Meanwhile, the Nevada Supreme Court rejects the Trump campaign’s latest challenge to the fraudulent election results certified by the state.
  65. 2020 Wednesday A: Now that many believe “Pro-China Joe” Biden is the ‘president-elect,’ illegal alien caravans are forming in Central America, preparing to head north to storm the U.S.-Mexico border into the U.S.  Vice President Biden has already promised to legalize millions of illegal aliens lurking within the shadows of the country so why wouldn’t millions more seek to flood into the country?   Speaking of mayhem, Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs are battling the streets in Portland, Oregon, in the broad light of day.  No more coming out at night like the vermin they are.  What is happening to the country?  Meanwhile, the Federal Trade Commission and 46 U.S. states join in an anti-trust lawsuit launched against Chi-Com-backed Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, California Democratic Congressman Eric Swalwell, a noted POS, now is upset that people are scrutinizing him for having had an ongoing affair with a Chi-Com intelligence agent, Christine Fang-Feng, blasting the Trump administration for releasing the salacious dirt on this moron.  We would love to see Swalwell end up doing time in a federal prison and to think this imbecile sought the 2020 presidential nomination of his party.  House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA, says, ‘Swalwell is compromised.’  Funny how people like Swalwell who accused President Trump of all kinds of crimes is the criminal himself…
  66. 2020 Wednesday B: Following a big Republican gathering in the Garden State featuring Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, Democrat, forbids the congressman from visiting his state again.  Elsewhere, Newsmax and Greg Kelly surpasses Martha MacCallum’s show on Fox News Channel for the first time.  People want the truth, like what we do here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM and not distorted BS that FNC now seems to spew around the clock.  It’s their loss and Newsmax’ gain.  
  67. 2020 Wednesday C: Here are the latest stats for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, straight out of Wuhan, China: 68,498,598 confirmed cases, UP by 518,604 cases, 1,562,886 confirmed deaths, UP by 10,517 deaths, and 44,171,660 confirmed recoveries, UP by 444,548 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 15,405,920 confirmed cases, UP by 200,243 new cases, 291,262 confirmed deaths, UP by 2,679 new deaths, and 7,142,384 confirmed recoveries, UP by 51,590 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: 350,271 confirmed cases, 2,934 confirmed deaths, and 331,861 confirmed recoveries.
  68. 2020 Wednesday D: 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: 1,425,432 confirmed cases, 20,243 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 19,056 confirmed cases, 266 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: 194,788 confirmed cases, 3,102 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, Alaska: 38,707 confirmed number of cases, 149 confirmed deaths, and sadly, no mention of the confirmed number of recoveries- thank you.
  69. 2020 Wednesday E: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,068.81, DOWN 105.57 points (-0.35%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,338.95, DOWN 243.82 points (-1.94%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,672.82, DOWN 29.43 points (-0.79%).  The price of GOLD is $1,842.90 per troy oz., +4.40 (+0.24%) while the price of SILVER is $24.05 per troy ounce, +0.25 (+0.48%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,010.00 per troy oz, -8.30 (-0.83%) while the price of COPPER is $3.50 per pound, -0.0145 (-0.41%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,290.60 per troy oz, -37.30 (-1.60%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $45.71 per barrel, +0.19 (+0.42%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.54 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.87.
  70. 2020 Wednesday F: We learn today that Texas is not alone in suing other states where rampant voter fraud occurred.  Joining the Lone Star State are Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, and West Virginia, along with the Trump administration.  If the corruption that occurred in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, North Carolina, and Nevada is allowed to stand, that corruption will infect the rest of the states in the Union which is why this case is going before the U.S. Supreme Court as do all interstate lawsuits.   Meanwhile, the U.S. House of Representatives passes a $740 billion defense bill opposed by President Trump because it fails to address the national security issues Facebook, Twitter, and other social media firms pose to the nation.   Elsewhere, the Trump administration wants to send $600 relief checks to all Americans while Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says the COVID-19 relief bill must drop (1) aid to the states and (2) COVID-19, aka Chi-Com Bat Virus liability measures Democrats want to tack onto it so if someone dines in a restaurant and gets the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, the infected person can sue the business owner.   Finally, the Trump administrations renames two military bases for the U.S. Space Force.  The two bases- Patrick Air Force Base and Cape Canaveral Air Force Station will be renamed- respectively- Patrick Space Force Base and Cape Canaveral Space Force Station.
  71. 2020 Wednesday G: Federal prosecutors in Delaware are investigating Hunter Biden on charges of tax fraud and other monetary and financial crimes which many now believe disqualifies his father, the so-called ‘president-elect’ because not only is he and his son in bed with Beijing, so is everyone else (or so we believe) in the Biden Family and in his inner circle.  The ‘Hunter Biden laptop’ alone should be enough to send son, Hunter, to the federal slammer.
  72. 2020 Wednesday H: Michigan state Representative Cynthia Johnson threatens ALL Trump supporters AND defenders of the U.S. Constitution with violence, calling ‘on soldiers in whatever army the Democrats possess’ (i.e., Antifa and Black Lives Matter human trash) ‘to commit acts of violence on their enemies.’  What is it about these female Democrats that think they can bully and threaten other, law-abiding citizens?  Bring it on there, congresswoman, you might be surprised at what comes YOUR way.
  73. 2020 Wednesday I:  Here are the numbers for tonight’s Super Lotto Drawing #3515 with a $13 million jackpot up for grabs: 05, 08, 13, 20, 39, and Mega 01.  Out of 84,659 winning tickets, two people had FIVE numbers but no Mega for a prize of $15,418 apiece.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #801 with a BIG JACKPOT of $262 million up for grabs: 11, 14, 31, 47, 48, and Power 04.  Out of 83,939 winning tickets, the highest winners were three people who had four numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $31,286 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by the record company and family of the late Sandy Denny is a good one: “Gold Dust- Live at the Royalty Theater” (recorded Sunday, November 27, 1977) which came out on June 13, 1998.  Her voice now changed by the booze and endless cigarettes, the angel, nevertheless, delivers an impassioned performance.  Joining her are her husband, the now-late-great Trevor Lucas (guitars, vocals), Dave Mattacks (drums), Pat Donaldson (bass, backing vocals), Peter Willsher (pedal steel guitar), and Rob Hendry (guitars, electric and acoustic).  This is a glorious glimpse back at a long-lost time, one, however, that beats the living daylights out of the modern crop of performers, which is why we encourage everyone to seek this one out and add it to your growing collection of nothing but the finest in rock and folk music from the 1960s and 1970s and beyond.  You will be glad you did.  Dig it, baby, dig it!

  55. 2020 Thursday: President Donald J. Trump sets the world ablaze when he questions the efficacy of mail-in ballots and proffers the suggestion that perhaps the November elections be postponed until this crazy system can be worked out.  Folks, mail-in ballots are fraud waiting to occur.  In June, the state of New York used mail-in ballots in their primary election and lo and behold, nearly seven weeks later, they are still trying to find out who won the various elections.  Meanwhile, former President Barack Hussein Obama- in his eulogy for deceased Congressman John Lewis, D-GA, lambastes President Trump for trying to steal the election, using voter intimidation and manipulation and God knows what other bull crap the former president could yank out of his mind and the attendees at the funeral, none of whom were sitting six-feet apart, leapt to their feet and applauded insanely for what seemed like hours.  Wow.  Will Democrats NEVER continue trying to steal elections?  Enough is flipping enough, already, folks.  Finally, Herman Cain, former CEO of Godfather Pizza and GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain dies at age 74 from the Bat Virus sent around the world by the Chi-Coms.  Speaking of the Bat Flu:

Rosenstein says that he will leave his post once a new attorney general undergoes confirmation.  Elsewhere, federal prosecutors accuse former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort of having passed campaign information to ‘Russian operatives.’
  61. 2020 Wednesday: President Trump tells the assembled media that ‘As long as he is president, Iran will NEVER have nuclear weapons.’  The president also urged NATO to take a greater role in the Middle East while encouraging all other signatories of the Iran Nuclear Deal- including Russia and China- to bail out.  In addition to that, President Trump promised even more sanctions against the Iranian regime with the desired purpose of having the dictatorship return to the society of nations.  Defense and intelligence officials brief Congress on the missile barrage the Iranians shot off in the vicinity of U.S. targets in Iraq.  Sparse damage was sustained and no lives were lost although Radio Tehran bragged about 80 or more American casualties.   Some Democrats continue labeling President Trump an ‘assassin’ while most Americans believe what he did to be justified.  
  62. 2021 Friday: It appears that Democrats are cowering in their corners over what President Donald J. Trump ‘might do in the days remaining to him.’  Could he release all sorts of data on “Pro-China Joe” Biden, the Democrat leadership, and others and their close ties to the Chi-Coms?  Hence why the Dems are urging Vice President Mike Pence to commune with the Cabinet (members leaving as we speak) so they can use the 25th Amendment to remove the 45th president (Pence won’t) or why they are proclaiming they are going to launch a second impeachment against President Trump in the less than two weeks remaining in his term.  In the same vein, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi spoke to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff- General Mark A. Milley to see if he would prohibit President Trump from launching nuclear barrages against the Chi-Coms, Iran, and other enemies of the U.S.  Wow.  Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal Editorial board says, ‘Trump should resign now.’
  63. 2021 Friday A: “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his wife, Jill, announce their first priority on entering the White House is to spend $1.2 million taxpayer dollars to renovate the bathrooms in the private residence.  Uh, okay, extremely important.  “Let them eat cake,” says Dr. Jill.  Next, ‘Vice President-elect Kooky Kamala’ Harris is taking heat from people across the board for her lambasting the purported Trump supporters’ riot on Capitol Hill on Wednesday when she encourage Black Lives Matter and Antifa to riot all summer, fall, and into the winter.  What a VP choice, folks, what a VP choice.   Speaking of violence, U.S. Catholic bishops condemn Wednesday’s riots.  Finally, the Boston bomber is suing the federal government over the prison restrictions forced upon him.
  64. 2021 Friday B:  Extreme intellect LeBron James says, “We live in two Americas.”  Yes, indeed, and you, you big POS, live in the upper crust one.  STFU.  Note of interest: we learned late last night that Marxist Chicago ‘Priest’ Father Michael Pfleger friend of Barack Hussein Obama- is stepping down from the priesthood seeing as how there are now allegations of child sexual abuse against him.  Oh, how the mighty fall.  On a humorous note, Senator Lindsey Graham, RINO Republican from South Carolina, receives loads of catcalls and negative rhetoric as he tries to head to his plane at Reagan International Airport.   About flipping time!  Finally, we learn that chief of staff to Vice President Mike Pence- Mark Strong- is the one who urged the VP not to fight the certification of the 2020 Presidential Election.  He is now barred from entering the White House grounds.  Remember that name: Mark Strong.  He hopes both he and VP Pence will have bought a future in mainstream Washington, D.C. politics.  (Note- President Trump is not going to attend the Biden-Harris inauguration but Mr. Pence will.  Florida Senator Rick Scott is also encouraging the 45th president to attend.  WHY?).  Speaking of maggots- former chief of staff General John Kelly, U.S. Army Ret., says he ‘would vote to remove Trump.’ 
  65. 2021 Friday C: President Trump awards the medal of freedom to three golfers- Annika Sorenstam, Gary Player, and Babe Zaharias.   Meanwhile, Ronna McDaniel is elected to another term as chair of the Republican National
    Committee whereas Hope Hicks says she is leaving next week.  Larry Kudlow and U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin are both remaining to the end of Trump’s term.    Next, President Trump promises to be a GIANT VOICE for his followers, all 77-80 million of them.  Finally, Simon and Schuster cancels Senator Josh Hawley’s book deal following his role in contesting the election results (which all the losers- both right and left- are using as an excuse to jump ship).
  66. 2021 Friday D: The U.S. has lost 140,000 jobs, the first monthly loss since the spring when government told us ‘we need to shut everything down for two weeks so we can flatten the curve.’  Result: a destroyed economy.  Elsewhere, Dodgers’ longtime player and manager Tommy Lasorda dead at age 93.  God bless you, Tommy!  Thank you for 1988!  Meanwhile, Elon Musk becomes the richest man in the world with $195 billion which is 10 billion more than Amazon.com owner Jeff Bezos.  Finally, Georgia U.S. Senator David Perdue follows in the footsteps of fellow Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler and concedes to his opponent, Sinophile and far-left-left-left Democrat Jon Ossoff.  It is over and it is done.
  67. 2021 Friday E: Former Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, U.S. Army Ret., and former national security adviser finds himself banned from Twitter.  U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the “U.S. is not a banana republic.” Elsewhere, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau blasts Trump for ‘inciting an assault on democracy.’ Mind your own business, twerp.  Meanwhile, the Rupert Murdoch empire calls for Trump to go but seeks to cling to the Trump base.  Finally, a report says that pipe bombs delivered to the RNC and the DNC contained timing devices. 
  68. 2021 Friday F: Here are the numbers for the COVID-19 global pandemic, the planet first: 88,203,229 confirmed cases, +290,489, 1,901,510, confirmed deaths, +6,121, and 49,203,004 confirmed recoveries, +189,840.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 22,011,358 confirmed cases, up 340,799 from yesterday’s reporting, 371,096 confirmed deaths, UP 4,662, and 9,776,573 confirmed recoveries, UP 79,660.

  64. 2020 Wednesday:  In the ongoing struggle with the Chi-Coms, Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe and U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo continue pointing out the danger that communist China poses to the United States.  In the same vein, Congressman Andy Biggs, R-AZ, points out that not only is “Pro-China Joe” Biden in bed with the Chi-Coms, so is his family.   Speaking of Arizona, the FBI raids a home in Maricopa County recovering computer hard drives and zip drives that may have been used in the 2020 Presidential Election fraud.  Meanwhile, the Nevada Supreme Court rejects the Trump campaign’s latest challenge to the fraudulent election results certified by the state.
  65. 2020 Wednesday A: Now that many believe “Pro-China Joe” Biden is the ‘president-elect,’ illegal alien caravans are forming in Central America, preparing to head north to storm the U.S.-Mexico border into the U.S.  Vice President Biden has already promised to legalize millions of illegal aliens lurking within the shadows of the country so why wouldn’t millions more seek to flood into the country?   Speaking of mayhem, Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs are battling the streets in Portland, Oregon, in the broad light of day.  No more coming out at night like the vermin they are.  What is happening to the country?  Meanwhile, the Federal Trade Commission and 46 U.S. states join in an anti-trust lawsuit launched against Chi-Com-backed Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, California Democratic Congressman Eric Swalwell, a noted POS, now is upset that people are scrutinizing him for having had an ongoing affair with a Chi-Com intelligence agent, Christine Fang-Feng, blasting the Trump administration for releasing the salacious dirt on this moron.  We would love to see Swalwell end up doing time in a federal prison and to think this imbecile sought the 2020 presidential nomination of his party.  House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA, says, ‘Swalwell is compromised.’  Funny how people like Swalwell who accused President Trump of all kinds of crimes is the criminal himself…
  66. 2020 Wednesday B: Following a big Republican gathering in the Garden State featuring Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, Democrat, forbids the congressman from visiting his state again.  Elsewhere, Newsmax and Greg Kelly surpasses Martha MacCallum’s show on Fox News Channel for the first time.  People want the truth, like what we do here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM and not distorted BS that FNC now seems to spew around the clock.  It’s their loss and Newsmax’ gain.
  67. 2020 Wednesday C: Here are the latest stats for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, straight out of Wuhan, China: 68,498,598 confirmed cases, UP by 518,604 cases, 1,562,886 confirmed deaths, UP by 10,517 deaths, and 44,171,660 confirmed recoveries, UP by 444,548 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 15,405,920 confirmed cases, UP by 200,243 new cases, 291,262 confirmed deaths, UP by 2,679 new deaths, and 7,142,384 confirmed recoveries, UP by 51,590 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: 350,271 confirmed cases, 2,934 confirmed deaths, and 331,861 confirmed recoveries.
  68. 2020 Wednesday D: 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: 1,425,432 confirmed cases, 20,243 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 19,056 confirmed cases, 266 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: 194,788 confirmed cases, 3,102 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, Alaska: 38,707 confirmed number of cases, 149 confirmed deaths, and sadly, no mention of the confirmed number of recoveries- thank you.
  69. 2020 Wednesday E: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,068.81, DOWN 105.57 points (-0.35%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,338.95, DOWN 243.82 points (-1.94%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,672.82, DOWN 29.43 points (-0.79%).  The price of GOLD is $1,842.90 per troy oz., +4.40 (+0.24%) while the price of SILVER is $24.05 per troy ounce, +0.25 (+0.48%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,010.00 per troy oz, -8.30 (-0.83%) while the price of COPPER is $3.50 per pound, -0.0145 (-0.41%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,290.60 per troy oz, -37.30 (-1.60%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $45.71 per barrel, +0.19 (+0.42%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.54 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.87.
  70. 2020 Wednesday F: We learn today that Texas is not alone in suing other states where rampant voter fraud occurred.  Joining the Lone Star State are Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, and West Virginia, along with the Trump administration.  If the corruption that occurred in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, North Carolina, and Nevada is allowed to stand, that corruption will infect the rest of the states in the Union which is why this case is going before the U.S. Supreme Court as do all interstate lawsuits.   Meanwhile, the U.S. House of Representatives passes a $740 billion defense bill opposed by President Trump because it fails to address the national security issues Facebook, Twitter, and other social media firms pose to the nation.   Elsewhere, the Trump administration wants to send $600 relief checks to all Americans while Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says the COVID-19 relief bill must drop (1) aid to the states and (2) COVID-19, aka Chi-Com Bat Virus liability measures Democrats want to tack onto it so if someone dines in a restaurant and gets the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, the infected person can sue the business owner.   Finally, the Trump administrations renames two military bases for the U.S. Space Force.  The two bases- Patrick Air Force Base and Cape Canaveral Air Force Station will be renamed- respectively- Patrick Space Force Base and Cape Canaveral Space Force Station.
  71. 2020 Wednesday G: Federal prosecutors in Delaware are investigating Hunter Biden on charges of tax fraud and other monetary and financial crimes which many now believe disqualifies his father, the so-called ‘president-elect’ because not only is he and his son in bed with Beijing, so is everyone else (or so we believe) in the Biden Family and in his inner circle.  The ‘Hunter Biden laptop’ alone should be enough to send son, Hunter, to the federal slammer.
  72. 2020 Wednesday H: Michigan state Representative Cynthia Johnson threatens ALL Trump supporters AND defenders of the U.S. Constitution with violence, calling ‘on soldiers in whatever army the Democrats possess’ (i.e., Antifa and Black Lives Matter human trash) ‘to commit violence on their enemies.’  What is it about these female Democrats that think they can bully and threaten other, law-abiding citizens?  Bring it on there, congresswoman, you might be surprised at what comes YOUR way.
  73. 2020 Wednesday I:  Here are the numbers for tonight’s Super Lotto Drawing #3515 with a $13 million jackpot up for grabs: 05, 08, 13, 20, 39, and Mega 01.  Out of 84,659 winning tickets, two people had FIVE numbers but no Mega for a prize of $15,418 apiece.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #801 with a BIG JACKPOT of $262 million up for grabs: 11, 14, 31, 47, 48, and Power 04.  Out of 83,939 winning tickets, the highest winners were three people who had four numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $31,286 apiece.                                                             
  74. 2020 Wednesday J:  As you know, every day, we await news as to what the Chi-Coms and their allies in Canada, Iran, Russia, and of course, the Democratic Party flunkies that do Beijing’s bidding…

Trump’s vetoes on bills blocking arms sales to Saudi Arabia.  Politicians are angry over the murder of the journalist Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Turkey.
  52. 2020 Thursday: President Donald J. Trump sets the world ablaze when he questions the efficacy of mail-in ballots and proffers the suggestion that perhaps the November elections be postponed until this crazy system can be worked out.  Folks, mail-in ballots are fraud waiting to occur.  In June, the state of New York used mail-in ballots in their primary election and lo and behold, nearly seven weeks later, they are still trying to find out who won the various elections.  Meanwhile, former President Barack Hussein Obama- in his eulogy for deceased Congressman John Lewis, D-GA, lambastes President Trump for trying to steal the election, using voter intimidation and manipulation and God knows what other bull crap the former president could yank out of his mind and the attendees at the funeral, none of whom were sitting six-feet apart, leapt to their feet and applauded insanely for what seemed like hours.  Wow.  Will Democrats NEVER continue trying to steal elections?  Enough is flipping enough, already, folks.  Finally, Herman Cain, former CEO of Godfather Pizza and GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain dies at age 74 from the Bat Virus sent around the world by the Chi-Coms.  Speaking of the Bat Flu:

#ST0001.1r Some Things #18 07-02-2020 (400)

 

Following the changes of “Free as a Bird,” Supertramp returned to the sound that made them famous when they released “Some Things Never Change” on March 24, 1997.   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.
