  71. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, is suing the Biden regime over its refusal to deport criminal illegal aliens.  Excellent. Next, citizens living in border states in a recent poll show that people of ALL political parties believe that Joe Biden’s immigration policies (or lack thereof) are responsible for driving cases of the ‘VID as well as increasing human trafficking and the deaths of thousands.  We must secure our borders.
  72. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden Regime News I– The International Energy Agency- the IEA- has warned that Joe Biden’s policies are allowing the Chi-Coms to obtain greater control of dwindling rare mineral resources across the globe.   Meanwhile, Dr. Jill is meeting with military spouses during a stop in the Rocky Mountain State.  Next, the FAA is hitting unruly, mask-less passengers with massive fines.   In other Biden regime news, growing numbers of people are asking WHY the United States Postal Service now is SPYING on Americans’ social media posts?  Where the hell does the USPS get authority to do this?  Twilight Zone, folks, welcome to the modern-day Joe Biden regime police state.[xviii]   Finally, U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona says, ‘kids will be back in school full-time by September.’
  73. 2021 Thursday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– House GOP leaders send a letter to Centers for Disease Control- CDC- demanding answers as to ties between teachers’ unions and the CDC.  The educators unions seem to hold a great deal of power over what the CDC says, allows, and does.  Next, Moderna is testing a COVID-19 booster shot which the pharmaceutical company shows promise in combatting the various variants.   Speaking of the vaccines, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich says that the ‘Chi-Coms will be thrilled’ if the patents are stripped from BIG PHARMA’S vaccines as the communists will get their hands on them.[xix]  Elsewhere, Israel announces they believe they may have developed a drug that may cure COVID-19.  Thank God Joe Biden has no right to hand this information over to the Chi-Coms.
  74. 2021 Thursday I: Foreign News / Overseas News– Xi Jinping has self-bestowed another title atop his shoulders, “Helmsman.”  The last person to ‘wear this moniker’ was the late Mao Zedong.   What further proof does one need to understand this thug wants to be a global dictator?   Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Tony Blinken says that the U.S. will ‘stand with Ukraine against Russia.’  Boy, oh, boy.  In other fascinating news, former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says that ‘Russian involvement, if not influence or interference in Brexit.’  Uh, okay.
  75. 2021 Thursday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– One America News obtained a letter from the Department of Justice to the state of Arizona attempting to STOP the 2020 Election audit currently going on within that state right now.  U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland swears the audit ‘could intimidate voters?’  WTF?  That is crazy, how is seeking to verify the election as free of corruption and fraud intimidating to voters unless of course, the timid voters actively participated in the fraud?   Speaking of election fraud, legislators in Wisconsin are proposing their own version of an election reform bill.  Meanwhile, Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, signed into law the strongest election integrity bill in the United States.  God bless you, governor.
  76. 2021 Thursday K: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– The upcoming new Superman movie will feature a black actor playing the man of steel.  Awesome.  Will the next Black Panther be a white actor? 
  77. 2021 Thursday L: National Security News– well-known household name Honeywell has been fined for sharing U.S. Department of Defense data with foreign countries.  The fine is a mere $13 million so it would seem as though the Biden regime wants Honeywell to continue funneling national security information to the, uh, Chi-Coms.  Really? 
  78. 2021 Thursday M: Big Tech News– Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, is officially introducing his “Bust Up Big Tech Act,” aka BUBTA, an act with which to clean the clocks of social media titans and search engine leftist losers.  We have been personally assaulted by both social media and BIG TECH and would love to see both destroyed and their individual parts plastered around the world.   In other pathetic BIG TECH NEWS, even though there is NO direct connection between ‘From the Desk of President Donald J. Trump’ and Twitter, Jack Dorsey has closed the account.  WTF?   Speaking of Twitter, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, blasts Twitter for temporarily suspending one of her aides for no particular reason.   Moving on, a member of the Facebook ‘Oversight Board’ says that the referral on President Donald J. Trump was ‘lazy.’  An overseer at Facebook says the social media site should be less politically loaded (because we hope you guys are going to get broken up…for good).
  79. 2021 Thursday N: Political News I– The state of South Carolina adds the firing squad to its list of execution methods which also include the electric chair and lethal injection.  However, seeing as how namby-pamby suppliers of drugs for lethal injection many times will not sell the necessary items to states using them to carry out capital punishment.  Next Donald Trump Jr. says the Dems ‘want his father silenced because they know he resonates with the American people.’  Meanwhile, Senator Chuck Grassley, R-IA, is upping pressure to get to the bottom of Climate Czar John F. “Lurch” Kerry’s numerous Logan Act violations.  We want to know, too, why this POS is able to collude with an ENEMY who hates our country, and no one does anything about it? 
  80. 2021 Thursday O: Political News II– Former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, DS, is colluding with a far-left Swiss billionaire so he can get funds to screw up gerrymandering efforts in states where changes in proportional representation and loss or gain of new House sets is occurring or is set to occur.   In other news, Rep. Steve Scalise, R-LA 1st congressional district, says of colleague, Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, is focused way too much on the past and not on the present and future.  We hope she is out next week.   NO MORE RINOS.  In other hilarious news, Governor Gretchen “Gravel Gertie” Whitmer, DS-MI, is set to receive a ‘profiles in courage award’ or some such dreck for her ‘handling of the pandemic in Michigan.’  What a joke.  This dingbat should be in prison.  In other news, Caitlyn Jenner- in response to critics going after her now that she is seeking Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom’s seat- says, “I move on.”  There you go.  
  81. 2021 Thursday P: Political News III–  A bar owner in California was busted for selling fake Chi-Vi vaccine documentation to people seeking them.  Next, Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DSPUSA-MN 5th congressional district says, ‘it’s time to grow a backbone and end the filibuster.’  F— you.   Next, New York’s Sheldon Silver, former Democratic speaker of the state assembly, has been ordered to return to federal prison.  Elsewhere, TenCent is negotiating with U.S. authorities to keep its investment in the U.S.  Meanwhile, the FBI says they have close to 500 (440) arrests in the BIG FALSE FLAG OPERATION the Democrats and their storm-troopers of Antifa and Black Lives Matter ran on January 06, 2021, at the U.S. Capitol.  Yes, there were Trump supporters there but it’s clear to anyone with political knowledge that most of the people were left-wing infiltrators who nearly pulled off a coup of sorts but eventually failed.  The only ones rotting in the D.C. hoosegow are Trumpers while the Antifa and BLM thugs have all been sprung and in the wind.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album released by the Band was the self-titled, “The Band.”  Released on September 22, 1969, this album known as the “Brown Album” due to its album cover, was an even bigger hit their freshman debut.  Like their first album, it produced some powerful hits such as “Up on Cripple Creek” and “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down.”  Once again, the band featured Rick Danko (bass, vocals, and fiddle), Robbie Robertson (guitars and vocals), Levon Helm (drums, percussion, vocals, mandolins, and tambourines), Richard Manuel (pianos, organs, and vocals), and Garth Hudson (keyboards and saxophones).  What we have for you today is the “The Band 50th Anniversary Edition” (where the hell does the time go?), a deluxe version that came out on September 27, 2019.  This is a wonderful album, one we anticipate everyone will want to own because in this day and age of bullshit music, there is nothing more refreshing than a blast from the past such as the one we are promoting here.  Please seek it out and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure.

49. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 2022

2021 Thursday I: For the heck of it, let’s look at another country- Germany: currently, they have 2,362,352 confirmed cases of the dreaded Chi-Vi, 67,074 confirmed deaths, and 2,153,918 confirmed recoveries. The AP reports that Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo sent at least 9,000 COVID-19-infected patients into New York nursing homes where he killed at least 15,000-20,000 if not more. For this lowlife scumbag to do this, he did it for ONE THING and ONE THING ONLY: to eliminate the aged, the infirm, the chronically ill, and the mentally challenged. Governor Cuomo must be put on trial for mass murder.

  57. 2019 Monday: Former Seattle Seahawks’ player T.J.

  58. 2020 Tuesday: President Donald J. Trump executes four pardons/commutations of sentence on this date: “Junk Bond King” Michael Milken, former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, former San Francisco 49ers owner Eddie DeBartolo Jr., and former NYPD Commissioner Bernard “Bernie” Kerik.  Once again, President Trump has demonstrated his commitment to doing what is right in a U.S. Justice system gone mad.   Meanwhile, tomorrow night is the big debate, the first DNC one to feature multibillionaire Michael Bloomberg and Democrats are going berserk around the country fearful that this POS bigoted scumbag is trying to BUY the nomination and then the White House.
  59. 2021 Thursday: Day 30 of the Biden Regime.  First, in a magnanimous moment of charity, Bill Gates suggests that it might be ‘okay’ for Donald Trump to be allowed back onto social media platforms- what a guy.  Speaking of Big Tech, Facebook is screeching and crying over to having to pay for its news feeds in Australia.  The country passed a law in which social media and search engine platforms Downunder must reimburse the sources from whence the news emanates.  Of course, Facebook does not like this.  Stop the sobbing.  In other media news, we learn today that Antifa thug John “Jake” Sullivan, a POS Marxist who led the Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021, received $35,000 each from CNN and NBC for his photos of the death of Ashlii Babbitt on that horrendous day, one the Dems continue trying to tie to former President Donald J. Trump.  Speaking of that horrible day and its aftermath, General Russell L. Honoré- the hero of Hurricane Katrina and now, a Kool-Aid-guzzling hack hired by Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi to investigate the left-wing Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021, is saying all manner of crazy things.  First, the barbed wire and walls around the Capitol aren’t leaving anytime soon, next that most of the line officers are pro-Trumpers, and that various Republicans must be rounded up, expelled, or imprisoned.  What happened to this guy?  Fascism is coming to a town or city near YOU soon.
  60. 2021 Thursday A: Governor Gregg Abbott of Texas is overwhelmed by the collapse of his state’s power infrastructure.  The winter storm has virtually stopped ALL power generation.  No one ever thought something like this would happen to the Lone Star State and those of us who might have thought about moving there at some point are now reconsidering those thoughts.  Apparently, the Electrical Reliability Council of Texas- never anticipated a disaster such as what has millions in the dark, sans heat, sans electricity, sans water, and sans communication services,  Meanwhile, conservative Senator Ted Cruz of Texas was caught on film taking his family to Cancun, Mexico, to escape the winter freeze-for-all in his home state.   In other energy-winter news, Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards is asking the federal government for a natural disaster emergency declaration.
  61. 2021 Thursday B: The earpiece in Joe Biden’s ear has told him to say he is going to establish a commission to look into reparations for slavery.  We went to our colleague Chef Bea O’Malley for his opinion on this matter and this is what she said: “NEVER gonna happen and here’s why- IF the Democrats were to give us black folks ‘reparations’ for something none of us have ever known (unless we came from the Third World), it would take one of their biggest RACISM ‘drums’ off the drum kit.  Thus, they never will do this because they would rather bang the drum for the rest of eternity than to actually address a ‘problem’ none of us living in this country have ever known.’  She also pointed out the obvious: they can’t even get us Chi-Vi relief checks so how the heck are they going to get us ‘reparations?’  The earpiece also told Joe Biden to look into how he can remove ALL student loan debt from the American people.  Our question: are the professors going to work for free or are we, the American people, going to have to foot this bill, too?  Dumb ass.
  62. 2021 Thursday C: House Financial Services Committee Chairperson Maxine Waters, D-CA, is busting the balls of CEOs from Robinhood and Reddit today over the GameStop debacle that saw the price of the stock driven sky high and then billions in short sales.   Of course, Democrats are upset they didn’t make some money off this amazingly successful strategy.   Meanwhile, the numbers of people murdered by New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo in his vast nursing home scandal and conspiracy, the one in which, he channeled COVID-19-infected people back into the places from whence they came and where their fellow patients were highly vulnerable to infection, illness, and death.  The number of nursing home deaths now sits at 19,000 dead and moron Cuomo MUST go to prison for this outrage.   Elsewhere around the country, the Los Angeles County School District has voted to remove ALL police from their school campuses and to seek $25,000 from the LAPD annual budget so they can concentrate on racial equity programs.   We bet YOU guys feel so good about yourselves, don’t you, wetting your panties we bet.  Finally, in California, the drive to recall Governor Gavin Newsom has far surpassed the necessary 1.5 million signatures which is why this POS nephew of Nancy Pelosi has signed a law that mandates the mailing of ballots to every registered voter (and illegal aliens) so as to ‘protect them from the Chinese Virus.  What does that say about mail-in ballots?
  63. 2021 Thursday D: Unemployment figures from last week far surpassed the week before, coming in at 861,000.  Thank you, ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden for being such a worthless POS that you are.  Your policies are killing the country.  Meanwhile, another POS politician- Congresswoman Liz Cheney, R-WY, under censure from the state’s GOP joins the loony tunes circus by saying, “There are white supremacists in both the GOP and the Democratic Party.”  WTF is wrong with YOU?  Another loser, Senator Susan Collins, RINO-Maine, says the ‘state’s GOP should focus on elections and not on (her) rebuke.’  Senator Collins, you MUST go.  Speaking of elections, RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel says the national GOP is working on securing elections across the country.  Finally, Congressman Steve Scalise, R-LA, has gone to Mar-A-Lago to visit with President Donald J. Trump.   Speaking of the former president, 75-percent of Republicans want Mr. Trump to continue as a major guiding light of the GOP which does not bode well for the “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell RINO wing of the party. 
  64. 2021 Thursday E: The earpiece in Joe Biden’s ear has given him a NEW immigration plan- near immediate legalization of 11 million illegal aliens in the country (an extremely sparse number seeing as how various estimates have put the numbers closer to between 30-50 million shadow-dwellers).  Some Democrats are beginning to tremble because if illegals become immediate citizens, the economy is going to tank, America’s genuine citizens are going to suffer, and crime rates are going to skyrocket rather than plummet.  Still, no one will talk sense to Barack Hussein Obama- oops- Joe Biden, certainly no one within his administration.  Elsewhere, any answers about flawed ‘Joe Biden policies’ are answered by White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki with ‘this one’s a woman, that one’s gay, that one is intersectional,’ like it’s somehow some sort of consolation that the person charged with fixing the problems are men who have become women or women who have become men, etc.  Enough with the identity politics already.   It almost makes us wish the Chi-Coms or the Russkies or the Taliban would take over so we could clean house on all this insanity.   In other Joe Biden news, the earpiece tells Usurper Joe to negate another Trump order, one that limited ‘climate change’ as a hashmark in federal reviews. 
  65. 2021 Thursday F: Here are particulars for the bill for the border swimmers and jumpers- 8 pathway to citizenship for ‘11’ (truly 30-50) million illegals.  Temporary status of five years plus three-year wait for citizenship.  The word, “illegal aliens” will be removed and ‘undocumented Democrats,’ oops, ‘undocumented persons will take its place as will be more immigration courts and judges plus $4 billion investment in Central America and infrastructure so illegals wanting to come here can begin the process there.  Effectively, NO one is going to be deported.  Thank you, Joe, thank you for destroying our country.
  66. 2021 Thursday G: Here are today’s stats for the Wuhan Flu, planet first: 109,901,391 confirmed cases, +288,143, 2,430,096, confirmed deaths, +8,615, and 61,879,542 confirmed recoveries, +203,350.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 28,100,922 confirmed cases, up 70,592 from yesterday’s reporting, 495,180 confirmed deaths, +2,253 from yesterday’s reporting, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP- UNKNOWN- same number as three weeks ago, going on four.  NOTE- in the White House 30 DAYS, apparently the U.S. will NO longer report the number of recoveries.  Shame on you, Chi-Com Joe.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 166,609 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, you said you had a plan- where the f**k is it?
  67. 2021 Thursday H: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,505,032 confirmed cases, 47,902 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,460 confirmed cases, 427 confirmed deaths (not updated in a week), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 334,284 confirmed cases, 4,824 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. real estate- Missouri: currently, they have 510,705 confirmed cases, 7,929 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 738,629 confirmed cases, 5,473 confirmed deaths, and 681,249 confirmed recoveries.    
  68. 2021 Thursday I: For the heck of it, let’s look at another country- Germany: currently, they have 2,362,352 confirmed cases of the dreaded Chi-Vi, 67,074 confirmed deaths, and 2,153,918 confirmed recoveries.   The AP reports that Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo sent at least 9,000 COVID-19-infected patients into New York nursing homes where he killed at least 15,000-20,000 if not more.  For this lowlife scumbag to do this, he did it for ONE THING and ONE THING ONLY: to eliminate the aged, the infirm, the chronically ill, and the mentally challenged.  Governor Cuomo must be put on trial for mass murder.  He will neither apologize nor will he admit his guilt.  This man must go to prison, his book should be canceled, and his Emmy stripped away.  Imagine if HE was a Republican.  The Democrats are slamming this piece of pond scum while the FBI is looking into his actions.  We also learned that Governor “Killer” Cuomo called Democrats in the state’s legislature and threatened them with repercussions.  F**k him.
  69. 2021 Thursday J:  IS THIS THE BEGINNING OF THE BIDEN DEPRESSION WE PREDICTED WOULD HAPPEN IN LATE SPRING/EARLY SUMMER?  We will keep our eyes on the crumbling stocks and commodities markets.  Here are today’s Stock Market closes but note- the Stock Market is now plummeting thanks to identity politics in the White House: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,493.34, DOWN 119.68 points (-0.38%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,865.36, DOWN 100.14 points (-0.72%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,913.97, DOWN 17.36 points (-0.44%).  The price of GOLD is $1,770.20 per troy oz., -4.80 (-0.27%) while the price of SILVER is $26.89 per troy ounce, -0.19 (-0.69%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,274.20 per troy oz, -0.50 (-0.04%) while the price of COPPER is $3.90 per pound, 0.00 (+0.06%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,558.80 per troy oz, -10.90 (-0.06%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $59.68 per barrel, -0.84 (-1.39%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.49 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.30.  Next, $1.00 U.S. = 0.000019 Bitcoin (BTC).  One buck U.S. = 5.43 Brazilian Real.
  70. 2021 Thursday K: Former President Donald J. Trump’s approval ratings among all citizens now rests at 59-percent approval ratings.  Meanwhile, a U.S. Senate panel has scheduled February 23, 2021, as the date for holding a hearing on the SolarWinds hack.  Next, the CDC releases a report in which, it says there ‘is no credible evidence that foods can pass the Wuhan Virus Crisis, the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, the Panda Pandemic, or the Chi-Vi to other human beings.  Speaking of the ‘VID, vaccine trials with pregnant women set to begin soon so as to fill a major black hole in what’s known about the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s escaped disease.   Meanwhile, in 2020 during the Chi-Com Fever, greenhouse gas emissions fell by 9.2-percent.  Elsewhere, the Taliban sent a letter to feeble old Joe Biden informing him that ‘he had better stick to the timeline on withdrawing U.S. troops his predecessor negotiated with the terrorist group.’   Speaking of Donald Trump, President Donald J. Trump wistfully tells Newsmax ‘IF ONLY ‘Cocaine Mitch’ McConnell would hit back at Joe Biden and “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer as hard as he hits me.’  That’s a hell of a statement.   Finally- as if no one did not know this, the U.S. is putting out feelers to rejoin the JCPOA, the corrupt agreement with which to prevent the Iranians from going nuclear.  Wow.
  71. 2021 Thursday L: NASA successfully landed their latest Mars Rover today.  This is their most advanced lander yet, one that will test for signs of ancient (and present) life as well as run experiments with which to convert carbon dioxide into oxygen.   There also is a plan to return rock and soil samples back to the Earth.  Gee, after what has happened with the Chi-Coms and their Panda Pandemic, is that not something we could do on, say, the moon?  Meanwhile, the U.S. House of Representatives introduces a bill with which to ban all products from Xinjiang Province in western China in which, slave labor produced it.  The Chi-Coms would have to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that NO slave labor by Uighurs or other Muslims produced it.  Xinjiang Province produces much of the world’s cotton and cotton products and the Uighur and other religious minority slaves are the ones doing it. 
  72. 2021 Thursday M: Texas cold snap enters its sixth day as biggest energy-producing state in the United States contends with systemic power outrages that have killed more than 20 people and left 4 million Texans in the dark and in the cold.  Many are having to boil snow to obtain water because any water coming out of the pipes is not potable seeing as how water purification plants have shut down due to loss of power from windmills and solar farms.  IF anyone requires a glimpse of what a future under loony tunes Green New Deal legislation looks like, take a good, long look at Texas, the number one state with the biggest fossil fuel reserves.  Liberalism has infected a conservative government and left the citizens of the Lone Star state suffering because of it.   Whatever that bug-eyed dingbat, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, we should do the exact flipping opposite of it.
  73. 2022 Friday: Stick around…

Thursday, February 18, 2021, Today in History Blog Post:   

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…


[i] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.

[ii] We began offering the music of the famed Flying Burrito Brothers on Sunday, 23-February-2014 through Thursday, 06-March-2014.  Please seek them out.  We thank you.

[iii] We hope to promote the music of the Doobie Brothers sometime before 2030.  We hope you will remain vigilant.

[iv] On Wednesday, 14-June-2017, we began presenting the music of the Guess Who and of its individual members- including Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Randy Bachman, Burton Cummings, and Bravebelt.  The entire discography ran from the above date through Sunday, 01-October-2017.  We hope you will check them out.

[v] We are not sure when we will begin offering albums by the Little River Band as that could be another 5-10 years from now but one day, we most surely will because they are one of the world’s greatest bands.  Seeing them live in the 1970s was mind-altering

[vi] We look forward to sharing the music of Pink Floyd- as well as the band’s members- sometime within the next 5-6 years.

[vii] Millions of Catholics wish that Pope Francis would go home to Argentina and remain there.

348. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, DECEMBER 14, 2021

69. 2020 Monday E: West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin urges passage of the $908 billion COVID-19 relief bill, but no movement is in sight as House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi seems to be in no mood for helping ANY American with financial aid, ONLY ILLEGAL ALIENS. The Chi-Vi economic toll affects both RED and BLUE states equally, yet very few want to help the American people.

  56. 2012 Friday: In Newtown, Connecticut, a shooter with a semi-automatic rifle murdered 20 first-graders, six educators, himself, and his mother (whom he shot first at home before launching his rampage) at Sandy Hook Elementary School.  The murderer was 20-year-old Adam Lanza, someone whom we later knew as mentally screwed up and who should have been in an institution.  Several of the family members of the victim are suing the people that manufacture Bushmaster rifles, as well as the distributor, the gun store, and the manager of the store.
  57. 2013 Saturday: China’s first lunar rover, the Yutu, makes the first ‘soft’ landing on the moon since 1976; Yutu is the third robotic lunar rover in existence.  Meanwhile, the last Australian combat troops leave Afghanistan on this date.
  58. 2014 Sunday: In Peru at the U.N. Climate Change Conference, nearly 200 nations join in signing an emissions reduction accord that requires them to post their plans online, which will allow the ‘public’ to pressure non-compliant nations to keep and to strengthen their commitments.  What a load of crap, Global Warming-Climate Change is a bullshit science. 
  59. 2015 Monday:  As all hell continues breaking loose in Syria, President Barack Hussein Obama says, “We are hitting ISIL harder than ever.”  Yeah, right.  Meanwhile, as ongoing U.S. airstrikes in the s-hole nation of Yemen continue, killing at least 19 civilians in the recent attacks, peace talks between the Yemeni government, Houthi rebels, and other interested parties in the region commence.
  60. 2016 Wednesday: Following reports of an ‘enemies list’ at the U.S. Department of Energy goes viral and ginned up outrage explodes around the country the Trump transition teams distances itself from the incendiary report.  Look, if there are loads of Greens in there, throw them out.  Meanwhile, as the Obama administration’s ‘Trump-Russia collusion bogus scandal’ gets underway, leaked reports claim that incoming National Security Adviser Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, Ret. ‘shared classified information with British and Australian officials (who we will learn in 2020 were in on the plot).
  61. 2017 Thursday: The Federal Communications Commission votes 3-2 to repeal the Net Neutrality rules imposed by the Obama administration.  Meanwhile, as budget talks continue, the Republicans are worried they might have defections on their side of the aisle.   Speaking of Republicans, House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-WI, is considering retirement at the end of the year.  Elsewhere, in Mogadishu, Somalia, the so-called ‘religion of peace’- Islam- strikes again as a suicide bomber kills at least 18 police trainees at a parade honoring them.
  62. 2018 Friday: President Donald J. Trump names OMB Director and acting director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Mick Mulvaney as his next chief of staff.   Mulvaney will replace retired Gen. John Kelly.  Meanwhile, a federal judge in Texas rules that the Affordable Care Act ‘must be invalidated in whole’ because without the individual mandate attached to it, it is unconstitutional.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Department of Education forgives $150 million in student loan debt.
  63. 2019 Saturday: The old sitcom, “The Beverly Hillbillies” mansion in Bel Air, California, goes on sale and fetches $150 million becoming one of the Golden State’s most expensive properties.  Meanwhile, as the impeachment of Donald Trump gathers steam, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, says, “I’m not trying to be a fair juror here” and opines that the ‘impeachment bill will die a quick death.’  Elsewhere, Louisiana State University QB Joe Burrow wins the 85th Annual Heisman Trophy Award.
  64. 2020 Monday:  Electors across the country meet today to determine who will carry the state’s presidential and vice-presidential votes to Washington, D.C. for the final Electoral College vote next month.  Republicans in battleground states plan to send alternative electors to represent them seeing as how several states had corrupt elections conducted by equally corrupt machines and election staff. White House advisor Stephen Miller says, ‘alternative electors is the way to go.’  We shall see what we shall see.  When the Electoral College meets, we expect to see Biden 306 and Trump 232 in the count.  Yes, the Dems and their Chi-Com masters STOLE this election.
  65. 2020 Monday A: Anyhow, as President Donald J. Trump and his followers continue saying, “It’s not over,” most people are coming to the conclusion that “Pro-China Joe” Biden is the next ‘president-elect.’  Meanwhile, as Georgians prepare to vote in January’s run-off elections, far-left-wing racist bigot (and shadow governor) Stacey Abrams reports she has 1.2 million absentee voters ready to go while currently, hundreds of citizens of the Peach State are already lining up to early-vote.  Folks, the Senate is lost.  Elsewhere, Michigan conducts a forensic audit of Canada’s Dominion Voting Systems machines and discovers what should be a disqualifying factor in throwing out the entire vote in that state: the allowable error in the machines is supposed to be NO MORE than .0008% but in the machines election officials used, the error rate was a shocking 68%.  This means the entire election is fraudulent and should be tossed.
  66. 2020 Monday B: The Wall Street Journal reports that the “Trump challenge is over.”  In the same vein, U.S. Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr says his boss is like a ‘deposed king ranting.’  Then, he resigned his office and said he will be gone before Christmas.  Loyalty.  One must admire it.  Speaking of ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden, we hear today that failed Midwestern former mayor and failed presidential candidate Mayor Pete Buttigieg heads the list to become the next secretary of the U.S. Department of Education.  Hell, Joe, why didn’t you appoint him your next U.S. ambassador to Iran (when you reopen our embassy there)?  Meanwhile, the ‘president-elect’ tells his supporters to stop with the calls for ‘defunding the police’ as it is costing them the support of the American people.
  67. 2020 Monday C: On the international front, we learn that the Chi-Coms have at least 2 million spies, honeypots, and intelligence agents inserted into governments, universities, corporations, and who knows?  Maybe even here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM.  Time to begin finding and removing these skunks like California Congressman Eric Swalwell, Democrat.   Speaking of the Chi-Coms, President Donald J. Trump says that it’s concerns about them that will cause him to veto the Defense Department spending bill soon to come to his desk.   Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the ‘Chi-Coms are the number one security threat to the United States.’  Watch “Pro-China Joe” welcome them to the White House along with Vladimir Putin and other thugs who want to destroy our country.  Elsewhere, Russian hackers breach the U.S. Treasury and Commerce Departments.  Not good.   We also learn that YouTube, Gmail, and Google were hit by some sort of outage which could be the Russkies, too.
  68. 2020 Monday D: In New York City, law enforcement offers a reward of $60,000 for information leading to the identification and arrest of the scumbag(s) responsible for the death of one-year-old toddler Carmelo Duncan who was hit by a stray round.   Meanwhile, we learn that last night’s attack on a cathedral in New York City was caused by what appears to have been a terrorist of some kind.
  69. 2020 Monday E: West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin urges passage of the $908 billion COVID-19 relief bill, but no movement is in sight as House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi seems to be in no mood for helping ANY American with financial aid, ONLY ILLEGAL ALIENS.  The Chi-Vi economic toll affects both RED and BLUE states equally, yet very few want to help the American people.  Speaking of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, vaccinations in the U.S. are underway.  Note of interest: the ‘Reverend’ Al Sharpton, noted left-wing loser was caught in a luxury building NOT WEARING A MASK.  Send the POS to the gulag.
  70. 2020 Monday F: Some nitwit asked former Vice President (and current Green Meanie) Al Gore had any regrets about conceding to George W. Bush to which, he said, “NO.”  Took you long enough, Al.  Meanwhile, adviser to President Donald J. Trump, Dick Morris, told John Bachman of Newsmax that the Democrats ‘pre-emptively put the fear of God into the U.S. Supreme Court with all this talk of court-packing.’  We always knew Chief Justice John Roberts was a coward.  Elsewhere, My Pillow guy Mike Lindell says “Fox News had to be in on it” meaning how the Democrats STOLE the 2020 Presidential Election from Trump and gave it to Biden.  Speaking of President Trump, he is appointing as many of his allies to various federal posts that incoming Biden-Harris administration won’t be able to topple or overturn.
  71. 2020 Monday G: As for the Beijing Bug, here are the numbers for the CHI-VI, you know, COVID-19 Chinese Bat Flu Virus Crisis, the pandemic they started but still try to blame on the U.S.:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 72,221,634 confirmed cases, +571,758, 1,612,014, confirmed deaths, +7,498, and 47,218,235 confirmed recoveries, +406,451.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Xi Jinping Bat Flu pandemic: 16,477,271 confirmed cases, up 155,120 from yesterday’s reporting, 302,141 confirmed deaths, UP 1,243, and 7,478,028 confirmed recoveries, UP 34,127.
  72. 2020 Monday H: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 1,600,338 confirmed cases, 21,054 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 19,512 confirmed cases, 274 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 209,442 confirmed cases, 3,047 confirmed deaths (for some unknown reason, less than last week’s count), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Vermont, currently, they have 5,857 confirmed cases, 96 confirmed deaths, and 3,603 confirmed recoveries which seems to be the way of the world at present  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife have moved there: 359,070 confirmed cases, 3,004 confirmed deaths, and 338,321 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at another nation: Columbia: they have 1,425,774 confirmed cases of the CHI-VI, 39,043 confirmed deaths and 1,335,517 confirmed recoveries.
  73. 2020 Monday I: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 29,861.55, DOWN 184.82 points (-0.62%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  12,440.04, UP 62.17 points (+0.50%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,647.49, DOWN 57.97 points (-0.44%).  Price of GOLD: $1,831.60 per troy oz., -0.50 (-0.03%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $23.98 per troy oz., -0.067 (-0.28%).  Price of PLATINUM: $1,018.60 per troy oz., +1.20 (+0.12%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,318.90 per troy oz., -14.20 (-0.61%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.52 per #, -0.0115 (-0.37%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $46.95, -0.04 (-0.09%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.55 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.82 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.94 Afghan Afghani.
  74. 2020 Monday J: Sports News- the Cleveland Indians announce they are going to change their name to something ‘less offensive.’  Nothing wrong with the name, maybe they just need to change the logo of Chief Wahoo.   As far as sports teams with Native American names left, we have the NFL’s Kansas City Chiefs, the MLB’s Atlanta Braves, and the NHL’s Chicago Blackhawks.  The last one said there’s NO way they are going to change their name.  We shall see.  Meanwhile, we have Monday Night Football’s game tonight: (16) Baltimore Ravens, 47 (8-5) @ Cleveland Browns, 42 (9-4) Monday Night 5:15 P.M.
  75. 2020 Monday K: Final news of the evening- murder rates double in the city of Chicago.  Democrats in control, NO WONDER.  Shame on you, Mayor Lori “Space Alien” Lightfoot.  Elsewhere, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue says of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka AOC, aka Baby Evita, aka “The Fly,” ‘thinks she is living in another country and not the United States.’  We wish she would return to whatever s-hole country from which, she came. Meanwhile, a U.S. Court of Appeals questions the Department of Justice’s drive to ban TikTok, the Chi-Com-intelligence-gathering ap.  Next, President Donald J. Trump appoints Roy Bernardi to the USPS Board of Governors.  Finally, Co-Chair of the RNC Tommie Hicks tells Newsmax that ‘the American people deserve answers on the Mueller probe.’  
  76. 2020 Monday L: Final news of the evening Pt. 2: Michigan Republican Congressman Paul Mitchell quits the GOP because of ‘Donald Trump.’  Meanwhile, the Trump administration removes Sudan from the state-sponsored terror list.   Speaking of terrorist states, the U.S. places new sanctions on Iranian and Turkish thugs involved in terrorism around the globe.  They believe individuals from Iran abducted former FBI agent Bob Levinson and spirited him to Iran.  The sanctions placed on Turkey result from their buying of Russian weapons systems.  We say, “Boot Turkey out of NATO.  Now.”
  77. 2020 Monday M:  This was our sentiment one year ago today: we encourage everyone to stick around and discover what the Chi-Coms, their allies in Canada, Iran, Russia, Venezuela, Cuba, North Korea, and their Democratic Party dupes in the United States are up to today.  You know it’s going to be good…
  78. 2021 Tuesday: Stick around to discover the truth along with us…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album released by Fairport Convention was another compilation package and a good one at that.  “Fiddlestix: The Best of Fairport Convention 1972-1984” hit record store shelves on July 21, 1999, and was a good one for fans.  It contains 19 tracks which include some rarities to sweeten the pot.  This veteran British band has so much glorious music that it is impossible to include everything on one single disc, thus one may have to pick up some of the other ‘best of’ compilations along with this one.  We believe you will be glad you did so please, seek this fine album wherever you shop for the absolute best in music.  You can thank us later.

Monday, December 14, 2020, Today in History:

We feel compelled to share with our new readers that we are an OPINION SITE and not a NEWS SITE although we do report the news.  If anything, we are big history buffs which is why we have been going strong since early 2009…

ENDNOTES:

[i] Not exactly sure when we will begin promoting the music of this wild Australian band, but you can rest assured that whenever we present Black Sabbath, we will follow them with AC/DC.

[ii] In about five years, we expect to spend a year or two covering the music of Motown and of other classic soul bands so please stay tuned for additional information.  We thank you.

[iii] When we do a couple of years of classic soul and Motown bands, the Jackson Five and Michael Jackson will be included among them.

[iv] We promoted the music of It’s a Beautiful Day beginning on Thursday, 25-August-2011 through Monday, 29-August-2011 and a second round on Tuesday, 04-February-2014 through Wednesday, 05-February-2014.  Please seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[v] On Wednesday, 14-June-2017, we began presenting the music of the Guess Who and of its individual members- including Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Randy Bachman, Burton Cummings, and Bravebelt.  The entire discography ran from the above date through Sunday, 01-October-2017.  We hope you will check them out.

[vi] Once again, unmistakable evidence of a malevolent Deep State exists here as the Intel Community swore up and down that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.  That was the entire purpose behind invading Iraq and toppling the scumbag Hussein but in the end loads of people died during and after the U.S.-led invasion, something President Donald J. Trump is trying to correct in 2019. 

WE THANK EVERYONE FOR JOINING US AT WORDPRESS.COM AND FOR AIDING US IN CONTINUING TO DO THE WORK WE TOOK UPON OURSELVES MORE THAN A DECADE AGO

Trump.  Prison for you and loss of the right to practice law.  Stay tuned for more…
  71. 2020 Wednesday E: President Donald J. Trump has suspended or canceled three bilateral agreements with Hong Kong since the Chi-Coms on the mainland have reneged on the guarantees they made with the citizens of the former British Crown Colony.   Some of the agreements deal with tax exemptions from international shipping and extradition treaties, making the Beijing bullies angry yet again.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms and their criminality, here are today’s stats for the novel coronavirus they purposely sent around the planet:
  72. 2020 Wednesday F: Here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 22,218,441 confirmed cases, UP by 244,048 cases, 782,883 confirmed deaths, UP by 6,726 deaths, and 14,156,538 confirmed recoveries, UP by 222,006 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 5,605,858 confirmed cases, UP by 42,212 new cases, 174,963 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,250 new deaths, and 2,852,221 confirmed recoveries, UP by 35,753 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they will not- corrupt MF-ers).
  73. 2020 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-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 638,831 confirmed cases, 11,523 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 5,349 confirmed cases, forty-one confirmed deaths, and 1,921 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 68,264 confirmed cases, 1,801 confirmed deaths, but like California, the palooka-faced governor, Jay Inslee, will not share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let us take a look at one more state, Colorado: 53,901 confirmed number of cases, 1,900 confirmed number of deaths, but like other Blue State locales, NO mention of recoveries in the mile-high state.
  74. 2020 Wednesday H: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,692.88, DOWN 85.19 points (-0.31%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,146.46, DOWN 64.38 points (-0.57%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,374.85, DOWN 14.93 points (-0.44%).  The price of GOLD is $1,943.70 per troy oz., -26.60 (-1.35%) while the price of SILVER is $26.96 per troy ounce, -0.38 (-1.39%).  The price of PLATINUM is $947.40 per troy oz, -8.90 (-0.93%) while the price of COPPER is $3.00 per pound, -0.0255 (-0.84%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $42.78 per barrel, -0.15 (-0.35%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.92 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros.
  75. 2021 Thursday: Let us pray today is a better day…

  63. 2020 Wednesday A: Long-time vocalist with the British rock band Bad Company[vi] (following the departure of original vocalist Paul Rodgers) Brian Howe died at age 66 in Lake Placid, Florida.  He served as the band’s vocalist from 1986 to 1993 and kept the band’s success alive.   Meanwhile, Venezuela announces that it is going to try the so-called ‘mercenaries’ captured a few days earlier by its armed forces in the nation’s civil courts, including the two supposed American ringleaders.  U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the U.S. will do ‘everything in its power to return U.S. citizens to the United States.’

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On December 13, 1971, after working long hours in the studio and performing gigs, Badfinger returned with “Straight Up,” an album that should have been a massive commercial success but which the critics panned.  The album featured the same lineup of Pete Ham (lead and backing vocals, lead guitar, and keyboards), Tom Evans (lead and backing vocals, bass guitar), Joey Molland (rhythm and lead guitars, lead and backing vocals), and Mike Gibbins (drums and percussion, backing and lead vocals) as well as George Harrison who basically joined the band and added his signature slide guitar as well as other notables such as Leon Russell and Gary Wright.  Critics slammed the effort but the group had three producers on the album beginning with Geoff Emerick who did their previous effort followed by ex-Beatle George Harrison who then left the band to bring his Concert for Bangladesh to fruition followed by the Nazz’ Todd Rundgren so there were inconsistencies throughout the effort.  Still, the song “Day After Day” was a big seller and will forever be associated with this gifted band.  We hope you will seek it out and consider adding it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

  58. 2021 Thursday: Day 30 of the Biden Regime.  First, in a magnanimous moment of charity, Bill Gates suggests that it might be ‘okay’ for Donald Trump to be allowed back onto social media platforms- what a guy.  Speaking of Big Tech, Facebook is screeching and crying over to having to pay for its news feeds in Australia.  The country passed a law in which social media and search engine platforms Downunder must reimburse the sources from whence the news emanates.  Of course, Facebook does not like this.  Stop the sobbing.  In other media news, we learn today that Antifa thug John “Jake” Sullivan, a POS Marxist who led the Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021 received $35,000 each from CNN and NBC for his photos of the death of Ashlii Babbitt on that horrendous day, one the Dems continue trying to tie to former President Donald J. Trump.  Speaking of that horrible day and its aftermath, General Russell L. Honoré- the hero of Hurricane Katrina and now, a Kool-Aid-guzzling hack hired by Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi to investigate the left-wing Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021, is saying all manner of crazy things.  First, the barbed wire and walls around the Capitol aren’t leaving anytime soon, next that most of the line officers are pro-Trumpers, and that various Republicans must be rounded up, expelled, or imprisoned.  What happened to this guy?  Fascism is coming to a town or city near YOU soon.
  59. 2021 Thursday A: Governor Gregg Abbott of Texas is overwhelmed by the collapse of his state’s power infrastructure.  The winter storm has virtually stopped ALL power generation.  No one ever thought something like this would happen to the Lone Star State and those of us who might have thought about moving there at some point are now reconsidering those thoughts.  Apparently the Electrical Reliability Council of Texas- never anticipated a disaster such as what has millions in the dark, sans heat, sans electricity, sans water, and sans communication services,  Meanwhile, conservative Senator Ted Cruz of Texas was caught on film taking his family to Cancun, Mexico, to escape the winter freeze-for-all in his home state.   In other energy-winter news, Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards is asking the federal government for a natural disaster emergency declaration.
  60. 2021 Thursday B: The earpiece in Joe Biden’s ear has told him to say he is going to establish a commission to look into reparations for slavery.  We went to our colleague Chef Bea O’Malley for his opinion on this matter and this is what she said: “NEVER gonna happen and here’s why- IF the Democrats were to give us black folks ‘reparations’ for something none of us have ever known (unless we came from the Third World), it would take one of their biggest RACISM ‘drums’ off the drum kit.  Thus, they never will do this because they would rather bang the drum for the rest of eternity than to actually address a ‘problem’ none of us living in this country have ever known.’  She also pointed out the obvious: they can’t even get us Chi-Vi relief checks so how the heck are they going to get us ‘reparations?’  The earpiece also told Joe Biden to look into how he can remove ALL student loan debt from the American people.  Our question: are the professors going to work for free or are we, the American people, going to have to foot this bill, too?  Dumb ass.
  61. 2021 Thursday C: House Financial Services Committee Chairperson Maxine Waters, D-CA, is busting the balls of CEOs from Robinhood and Reddit today over the GameStop debacle that saw the price of the stock driven sky high and then billions in short sales.   Of course Democrats are upset they didn’t make some money off this amazingly successful strategy.   Meanwhile, the numbers of people murdered by New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo in his vast nursing home scandal and conspiracy, the one in which, he channeled COVID-19-infected people back into the places from whence they came and where their fellow patients were highly vulnerable to infection, illness, and death.  The number of nursing home deaths now sits at 19,000 dead and moron Cuomo MUST go to prison for this outrage.   Elsewhere around the country, the Los Angeles County School District has voted to remove ALL police from their school campuses and to seek $25,000 from the LAPD annual budget so they can concentrate on racial equity programs.   We bet YOU guys feel so good about yourselves, don’t you, wetting your panties we bet.  Finally, in California, the drive to recall Governor Gavin Newsom has far surpassed the necessary 1.5 million signatures which is why this POS nephew of Nancy Pelosi has signed a law that mandates the mailing of ballots to every registered voter (and illegal aliens) so as to ‘protect them from the Chinese Virus.  What does that say about mail-in ballots?
  62. 2021 Thursday D: Unemployment figures from last week far surpassed the week before, coming in at 861,000.  Thank you, ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden for being such a worthless POS that you are.  Your policies are killing the country.  Meanwhile, another POS politician- Congresswoman Liz Cheney, R-WY, under censure from the state’s GOP joins the loony tunes circus by saying, “There are white supremacists in both the GOP and the Democratic Party.”  WTF is wrong with YOU?  Another loser, Senator Susan Collins, RINO-Maine, says the ‘state’s GOP should focus on elections and not on (her) rebuke.’  Senator Collins, you MUST go.  Speaking of elections, RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel says the national GOP is working on securing elections across the country.  Finally, Congressman Steve Scalise, R-LA, has gone to Mar-A-Lago to visit with President Donald J. Trump.   Speaking of the former president, 75-percent of Republicans want Mr. Trump to continue as a major guiding light of the GOP which does not bode well for the “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell RINO wing of the party. 
  63. 2021 Thursday E: The earpiece in Joe Biden’s ear has given him a NEW immigration plan- near immediate legalization of 11 million illegal aliens in the country (an extremely low number seeing as how various estimates have put the numbers closer to between 30-50 million shadow-dwellers).  Some Democrats are beginning to tremble because if illegals become immediate citizens, the economy is going to tank, America’s genuine citizens are going to suffer, and crime rates are going to skyrocket rather than plummet.  Still, no one will talk sense to Barack Hussein Obama- oops- Joe Biden, certainly no one within his administration.  Elsewhere, any answers about flawed ‘Joe Biden policies’ are answered by White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki with ‘this one’s a woman, that one’s gay, that one is intersectional,’ like it’s somehow some sort of consolation that the person charged with fixing the problems are men who have become women or women who have become men, etc.  Enough with the identity politics already.   It almost makes us wish the Chi-Coms or the Russkies or the Taliban would take over so we could clean house on all this insanity.   In other Joe Biden news, the earpiece tells Usurper Joe to negate another Trump order, one that limited ‘climate change’ as a hashmark in federal reviews. 
  64. 2021 Thursday F: Here are particulars for the bill for the border swimmers and jumpers- 8 pathway to citizenship for ‘11’ (truly 30-50) million illegals.  Temporary status of five years plus three-year wait for citizenship.  The word, “illegal aliens” will be removed and ‘undocumented Democrats,’ oops, ‘undocumented persons will take its place as will be more immigration courts and judges plus $4 billion investment in Central America and infrastructure so illegals wanting to come here can begin the process there.  Effectively, NO one is going to be deported.  Thank you, Joe, thank you for destroying our country.
  65. 2021 Thursday G: Here are today’s stats for the Wuhan Flu, planet first: 109,901,391 confirmed cases, +288,143, 2,430,096, confirmed deaths, +8,615, and 61,879,542 confirmed recoveries, +203,350.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 28,100,922 confirmed cases, up 70,592 from yesterday’s reporting, 495,180 confirmed deaths, +2,253 from yesterday’s reporting, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP- UNKNOWN- same number as three weeks ago, going on four.  NOTE- in the White House 30 DAYS, apparently the U.S. will NO longer report the number of recoveries.  Shame on you, Chi-Com Joe.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 166,609 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, you said you had a plan- where the f**k is it?
  66. 2021 Thursday H: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,505,032 confirmed cases, 47,902 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,460 confirmed cases, 427 confirmed deaths (not updated in a week), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 334,284 confirmed cases, 4,824 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. real estate- Missouri: currently, they have 510,705 confirmed cases, 7,929 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 738,629 confirmed cases, 5,473 confirmed deaths, and 681,249 confirmed recoveries.    
  67. 2021 Thursday I: For the heck of it, let’s look at another country- Germany: currently, they have 2,362,352 confirmed cases of the dreaded Chi-Vi, 67,074 confirmed deaths, and 2,153,918 confirmed recoveries.   The AP reports that Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo sent at least 9,000 COVID-19-infected patients into New York nursing homes where he killed at least 15,000-20,000 if not more.  For this lowlife scumbag to do this, he did it for ONE THING and ONE THING ONLY: to eliminate the aged, the infirm, the chronically ill, and the mentally challenged.  Governor Cuomo must be put on trial for mass murder.  He will neither apologize nor will he admit his guilt.  This man must go to prison, his book should be canceled, and his Emmy stripped away.  Imagine if HE was a Republican.  The Democrats are slamming this piece of pond scum while the FBI is looking into his actions.  We also learned that Governor “Killer” Cuomo called Democrats in the state’s legislature and threatened them with repercussions.  F**k him.
  68. 2021 Thursday J:  IS THIS THE BEGINNING OF THE BIDEN DEPRESSION WE PREDICTED WOULD HAPPEN IN LATE SPRING/EARLY SUMMER?  We will keep our eyes on the crumbling stocks and commodities markets.  Here are today’s Stock Market closes but note- the Stock Market is now plummeting thanks to identity politics in the White House: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,493.34, DOWN 119.68 points (-0.38%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,865.36, DOWN 100.14 points (-0.72%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,913.97, DOWN 17.36 points (-0.44%).  The price of GOLD is $1,770.20 per troy oz., -4.80 (-0.27%) while the price of SILVER is $26.89 per troy ounce, -0.19 (-0.69%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,274.20 per troy oz, -0.50 (-0.04%) while the price of COPPER is $3.90 per pound, 0.00 (+0.06%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,558.80 per troy oz, -10.90 (-0.06%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $59.68 per barrel, -0.84 (-1.39%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.49 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.30.  Next, $1.00 U.S. = 0.000019 Bitcoin (BTC).  One buck U.S. = 5.43 Brazilian Real.
  69. 2021 Thursday K: Former President Donald J. Trump’s approval ratings among all citizens now rests at 59-percent approval ratings.  Meanwhile, a U.S. Senate panel has scheduled February 23, 2021, as the date for holding a hearing on the SolarWinds hack.  Next, the CDC releases a report in which, it says there ‘is no credible evidence that foods can pass the Wuhan Virus Crisis, the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, the Panda Pandemic, or the Chi-Vi to other human beings.  Speaking of the ‘VID, vaccine trials with pregnant women set to begin soon so as to fill a major black hole in what’s known about the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s escaped disease.   Meanwhile, in 2020 during the Chi-Com Fever, greenhouse gas emissions fell by 9.2-percent.  Elsewhere, the Taliban sent a letter to feeble old Joe Biden informing him that ‘he had better stick to the timeline on withdrawing U.S. troops his predecessor negotiated with the terrorist group.’   Speaking of Donald Trump, President Donald J. Trump wistfully tells Newsmax ‘IF ONLY ‘Cocaine Mitch’ McConnell would hit back at Joe Biden and “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer as hard as he hits me.’  That’s a hell of a statement.   Finally- as if no one did not know this, the U.S. is putting out feelers to rejoin the JCPOA, the corrupt agreement with which to prevent the Iranians from going nuclear.  Wow.
  70. 2021 Thursday L: NASA successfully landed their latest Mars Rover today.  This is their most advanced lander yet, one that will test for signs of ancient (and present) life as well as run experiments with which to convert carbon dioxide into oxygen.   There also is a plan to return rock and soil samples back to the Earth.  Gee, after what has happened with the Chi-Coms and their Panda Pandemic, is that not something we could do on, say, the moon?  Meanwhile, the U.S. House of Representatives introduces a bill with which to ban all products from Xinjiang Province in western China in which, slave labor produced it.  The Chi-Coms would have to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that NO slave labor by Uighurs or other Muslims produced it.  Xinjiang Province produces much of the world’s cotton and cotton products and the Uighur and other religious minority slaves are the ones doing it. 
  71. 2021 Thursday M: Texas cold snap enters its sixth day as biggest energy-producing state in the United States contends with systemic power outrages that have killed more than 20 people and left 4 million Texans in the dark and in the cold.  Many are having to boil snow to obtain water because any water coming out of the pipes is not potable seeing as how water purification plants have shut down due to loss of power from windmills and solar farms.  IF anyone requires a glimpse of what a future under loony tunes Green New Deal legislation looks like, take a good, long look at Texas, the number one state with the biggest fossil fuel reserves.  Liberalism has infected a conservative government and left the citizens of the Lone Star state suffering because of it.   Whatever that bug-eyed dingbat, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, we should do the exact flipping opposite of it.

Y. 1942 Monday: In the fight to relieve the trapped Sixth Army in Stalingrad, Colonel General “Papa” Hoth and his armored spearheads are fighting against stiffening Russian resistance. Still, they are making headway as the Soviets were unprepared for a force this size driving towards the doomed city. Meanwhile, the Luftwaffe’s fight to bring supplies into Stalingrad continues losing planes to AA fire as well as Red Air Force fighter planes. Still, the airlift continues.

  57. 2016 Wednesday: Following reports of an ‘enemies list’ at the U.S. Department of Energy goes viral and ginned up outrage explodes around the country the Trump transition teams distances itself from the incendiary report.  Look, if there are loads of Greens in there, throw them out.  Meanwhile, as the Obama administration’s ‘Trump-Russia collusion bogus scandal’ gets underway, leaked reports claim that incoming National Security Adviser Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, Ret. ‘shared classified information with British and Australian officials (who we will learn in 2020 were in on the plot).
  58. 2017 Thursday: The Federal Communications Commission votes 3-2 to repeal the Net Neutrality rules imposed by the Obama administration.  Meanwhile, as budget talks continue, the Republicans are worried they might have defections on their side of the aisle.   Speaking of Republicans, House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-WI, is considering retirement at the end of the year.  Elsewhere, in Mogadishu, Somalia, the so-called ‘religion of peace’- Islam- strikes again as a suicide bomber kills at least 18 police trainees at a parade honoring them.
  59. 2018 Friday: President Donald J. Trump names OMB Director and acting director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Mick Mulvaney as his next chief of staff.   Mulvaney will replace retired Gen. John Kelly.  Meanwhile, a federal judge in Texas rules that the Affordable Care Act ‘must be invalidated in whole’ because without the individual mandate attached to it, it is unconstitutional.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Department of Education forgives $150 million in student loan debt.
  60. 2019 Saturday: The old sitcom, “The Beverly Hillbillies” mansion in Bel Air, California, goes on sale and fetches $150 million becoming one of the Golden State’s most expensive properties.  Meanwhile, as the impeachment of Donald Trump gathers steam, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, says, “I’m not trying to be a fair juror here” and opines that the ‘impeachment bill will die a quick death.’  Elsewhere, Louisiana State University QB Joe Burrow wins the 85th Annual Heisman Trophy Award.
  61. 2020 Monday:  Electors across the country meet today to determine who will carry the state’s presidential and vice-presidential votes to Washington, D.C. for the final Electoral College vote next month.  Republicans in battleground states plan to send alternative electors to represent them seeing as how several states had corrupt elections conducted by equally corrupt machines and election staff. White House advisor Stephen Miller says ‘alternative electors is the way to go.’  We shall see what we shall see.  When the Electoral College meets, we expect to see Biden 306 and Trump 232 in the count.  Yes, the Dems and their Chi-Com masters STOLE this election.
  62. 2020 Monday A: Anyhow, as President Donald J. Trump and his followers continue saying, “It’s not over,” most people are coming to the conclusion that “Pro-China Joe” Biden is the next ‘president-elect.’  Meanwhile, as Georgians prepare to vote in January’s run-off elections, far-left-wing racist bigot (and shadow governor) Stacey Abrams reports she has 1.2 million absentee voters ready to go while currently, hundreds of citizens of the Peach State are already lining up to early-vote.  Folks, the Senate is lost.  Elsewhere, Michigan conducts a forensic audit of Canada’s Dominion Voting Systems machines and discovers what should be a disqualifying factor in throwing out the entire vote in that state: the allowable error in the machines is supposed to be NO MORE than .0008% but in the machines used, the error rate was a shocking 68%.  This means the entire election is fraudulent and should be tossed.
  63. 2020 Monday B: The Wall Street Journal reports that the “Trump challenge is over.”  In the same vein, U.S. Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr says his boss is like a ‘deposed king ranting.’  Then, he resigned his office and said he will be gone before Christmas.  Loyalty.  One must admire it.  Speaking of ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden, we hear today that failed Midwestern former mayor and failed presidential candidate Mayor Pete Buttigieg heads the list to become the next secretary of the U.S. Department of Education.  Hell, Joe, why didn’t you appoint him your next U.S. ambassador to Iran (when you reopen our embassy there)?  Meanwhile, the ‘president-elect’ tells his supporters to stop with the calls for ‘defunding the police’ as it is costing them the support of the American people.
  64. 2020 Monday C: On the international front, we learn that the Chi-Coms have at least 2 million spies, honeypots, and intelligence agents inserted into governments, universities, corporations, and who knows?  Maybe even here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM.  Time to begin finding and removing these skunks like California Congressman Eric Swalwell, Democrat.   Speaking of the Chi-Coms, President Donald J. Trump says that it’s concerns about them that will cause him to veto the Defense Department spending bill soon to come to his desk.   Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the ‘Chi-Coms are the number one security threat to the United States.’  Watch “Pro-China Joe” welcome them to the White House along with Vladimir Putin and other thugs who want to destroy our country.  Elsewhere, Russian hackers breach the U.S. Treasury and Commerce Departments.  Not good.   We also learn that YouTube, Gmail, and Google were hit by some sort of outage which could be the Russkies, too.
  65. 2020 Monday D: In New York City, law enforcement offers a reward of $60,000 for information leading to the identification and arrest of the scumbag(s) responsible for the death of one-year-old toddler Carmelo Duncan who was hit by a stray round.   Meanwhile, we learn that last night’s attack on a cathedral in New York City was caused by what appears to have been a terrorist of some kind.
  66. 2020 Monday E: West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin urges passage of the $908 billion COVID-19 relief bill but no movement is in sight as House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi seems to be in no mood for helping ANY American with financial aid, ONLY ILLEGAL ALIENS.  The Chi-Vi economic toll affects both RED and BLUE states equally, yet very few want to help the American people.  Speaking of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, vaccinations in the U.S. are underway.  Note of interest: the ‘Reverend’ Al Sharpton, noted left-wing loser was caught in a luxury building NOT WEARING A MASK.  Send the POS to the gulag.
  67. 2020 Monday F: Some nitwit asked former Vice President (and current Green Meanie) Al Gore had any regrets about conceding to George W. Bush to which, he said, “NO.”  Took you long enough, Al.  Meanwhile, adviser to President Donald J. Trump, Dick Morris, told John Bachman of Newsmax that the Democrats ‘pre-emptively put the fear of God into the U.S. Supreme Court with all this talk of court-packing.’  We always knew Chief Justice John Roberts was a coward.  Elsewhere, My Pillow guy Mike Lindell says “Fox News had to be in on it” meaning how the Democrats STOLE the 2020 Presidential Election from Trump and gave it to Biden.  Speaking of President Trump, he is appointing as many of his allies to various federal posts that incoming Biden-Harris administration won’t be able to topple or overturn.
  68. 2020 Monday G: As for the Beijing Bug, here are the numbers for the CHI-VI, you know, COVID-19 Chinese Bat Flu Virus Crisis, the pandemic they started but still try to blame on the U.S.:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 72,221,634 confirmed cases, +571,758, 1,612,014, confirmed deaths, +7,498, and 47,218,235 confirmed recoveries, +406,451.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Xi Jinping Bat Flu pandemic: 16,477,271 confirmed cases, up 155,120 from yesterday’s reporting, 302,141 confirmed deaths, UP 1,243, and 7,478,028 confirmed recoveries, UP 34,127.
  69. 2020 Monday H: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 1,600,338 confirmed cases, 21,054 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 19,512 confirmed cases, 274 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 209,442 confirmed cases, 3,047 confirmed deaths (for some unknown reason, less than last week’s count), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Vermont, currently, they have 5,857 confirmed cases, 96 confirmed deaths, and 3,603 confirmed recoveries which seems to be the way of the world at present  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife have moved there: 359,070 confirmed cases, 3,004 confirmed deaths, and 338,321 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at another nation: Columbia: they have 1,425,774 confirmed cases of the CHI-VI, 39,043 confirmed deaths and 1,335,517 confirmed recoveries.
  70. 2020 Monday I: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 29,861.55, DOWN 184.82 points (-0.62%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  12,440.04, UP 62.17 points (+0.50%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,647.49, DOWN 57.97 points (-0.44%).  Price of GOLD: $1,831.60 per troy oz., -0.50 (-0.03%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $23.98 per troy oz., -0.067 (-0.28%).  Price of PLATINUM: $1,018.60 per troy oz., +1.20 (+0.12%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,318.90 per troy oz., -14.20 (-0.61%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.52 per #, -0.0115 (-0.37%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $46.95, -0.04 (-0.09%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.55 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.82 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.94 Afghan Afghani.
  71. 2020 Monday J: Sports News- the Cleveland Indians announce they are going to change their name to something ‘less offensive.’  Nothing wrong with the name, maybe they just need to change the logo of Chief Wahoo.   As far as sports teams with Native American names left, we have the NFL’s Kansas City Chiefs, the MLB’s Atlanta Braves, and the NHL’s Chicago Blackhawks.  The last one said there’s NO way they are going to change their name.  We shall see.  Meanwhile, we have Monday Night Football’s game tonight: (16) Baltimore Ravens, 47 (8-5) @ Cleveland Browns, 42 (9-4) Monday Night 5:15 P.M.
  72. 2020 Monday K: Final news of the evening- murder rates double in the city of Chicago.  Democrats in control, NO WONDER.  Shame on you, Mayor Lori “Space Alien” Lightfoot.  Elsewhere, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue says of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka AOC, aka Baby Evita, aka “The Fly,” ‘thinks she is living in another country and not the United States.’  We wish she would return to whatever s-hole country from which, she came. Meanwhile, a U.S. Court of Appeals questions the Department of Justice’s drive to ban TikTok, the Chi-Com-intelligence-gathering ap.  Next, President Donald J. Trump appoints Roy Bernardi to the USPS Board of Governors.  Finally, Co-Chair of the RNC Tommie Hicks tells Newsmax that ‘the American people deserve answers on the Mueller probe.’  
  73. 2020 Monday L: Final news of the evening Pt. 2: Michigan Republican Congressman Paul Mitchell quits the GOP because of ‘Donald Trump.’  Meanwhile, the Trump administration removes Sudan from the state-sponsored terror list.   Speaking of terrorist states, the U.S. places new sanctions on Iranian and Turkish thugs involved in terrorism around the globe.  They believe individuals from Iran abducted former FBI agent Bob Levinson and spirited him to Iran.  The sanctions placed on Turkey result from their buying of Russian weapons systems.  We say, “Boot Turkey out of NATO.  Now.”
  74. 2020 Monday M:  We encourage everyone to stick around and discover what the Chi-Coms, their allies in Canada, Iran, Russia, Venezuela, Cuba, North Korea, and their Democratic Party dupes in the United States are up to today.  You know it’s going to be good…

ENDNOTES:


[i] Not exactly sure when we will begin promoting the music of this wild Australian band but you can rest assured that whenever we present Black Sabbath, we will follow them with AC/DC.

[ii] In about five years, we expect to spend a year or two covering the music of Motown and of other classic soul bands so please stay tuned for additional information.  We thank you.

[iii] When we do a couple of years of classic soul and Motown bands, the Jackson Five and Michael Jackson will be included among them.

[iv] We promoted the music of It’s a Beautiful Day beginning on Thursday, 25-August-2011 through Monday, 29-August-2011 and a second round on Tuesday, 04-February-2014 through Wednesday, 05-February-2014.  Please seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[vi] Once again, clear evidence of a malevolent Deep State exists here as the Intel Community swore up and down that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.  That was the entire purpose behind invading Iraq and toppling the scumbag Hussein but in the end loads of people died during and after the U.S.-led invasion, something President Donald J. Trump is trying to correct in 2019.

  62. 2017 Saturday: Following violent clashes between leftist mobs and White Supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia, mourners honor Heather Heyer, a young woman killed when a car piloted by Nazi sympathizer James Alex Fields plowed through a crowd demanding Confederate States of America statues taken down. Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump disbands an advisory council after some members quit over his misreported remarks concerning the Charlottesville incident.
  63. 2018 Sunday: In a New York Times article, the author claims that one of Jeffrey Epstein’s many accusers- in this case, Asia Argento- is alleged herself to have assaulted a 17-year-old minor. Say it ain’t so!  Meanwhile, in an interview between President Donald J. Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani and NBC’s Chuck Todd that ‘truth isn’t truth.’
  64. 2019 Monday: The U.S. special envoy to Afghanistan in charge of the peace talks- Zalmay Khalilzad- says that in the wake of a major suicide bombing ISIS carried out at a wedding in Kabul that left at least 63 people dead and hundreds injured, the peace negotiations must be sped up in order that the country does not implode before concluded. Elsewhere, candidate Bernie Sanders, seeking the 2020 Democratic Party’s presidential nomination unveils his criminal justice reform plan.  It will end privatized prisons, cash bail, funding for more public defenders, and a stop to civil assets forfeiture.  He also proposes a “Prisoner’s Bill of Rights.”  You go, you flipping commie, you go!
  65. 2020 Wednesday: In Grand Prairie, Texas, a downed power line lights up a major plastics manufacturer’s plant.  As the plastic burns, a cloud of toxic smoke roils upward as firefighters fight to put it out; authorities say the blaze could continue for days.  Next, TV ratings for Monday’s first night of the Democratic Convention in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, are down 28-percent and on the Big Three Networks, ratings are down an astounding 40-percent.  Talk about a boring bitch-fest!  There is a growing anger among Americans watching this snooze-fest that the Democrats WON’T mention the mob violence and massive uptick in violent crime around the country, violence for which, they bear sole responsibility.
  66. 2020 Wednesday A: Due to a spike in new Xi Jinping Bat Flu cases in just nine days, Notre Dame (150 new Wuhan Virus cases) announces the closure of its campus while the University of North Carolina, faced with 222 new cases, an upward tick of 17.2-percent, also announces it closure for the immediate future.   In Europe, Spain reports 3,700 new cases of the Kung Flu after keeping their country on lockdown for three months.  Seeing this number of new cases on the first day the country opened is astounding.  So much for doing business with the Chi-Coms.
  67. 2020 Wednesday B: Economic news for today is great: Target reports profits are up by an astounding 80-percent while Apple becomes the first U.S. company to hit a market cap of $2 trillion. It took Apple 38 years to hit $1 trillion and then just 2 years to attain the astoundingly high number of $2 trillion.  And people thought Tim Cook, Apple CEO, lacked what it took to continue the work of Steve Jobs.
  68. 2020 Wednesday C: Following U.S. tire manufacturer Goodyear Tires banning its employees from wearing MAGA hats, President Donald J. Trump sends out a Tweet urging people not to buy the company’s tires and other products. Goodyear backtracks really quick and tries to clarify what it said.  It looks like employees can wear MAGA hats if they so choose.    Speaking of the Trump administration, Chief of Staff Mark Meadows echoes statements made by Dr. Tony Fauci and other medical professionals that ‘if it’s okay to protest in the streets, it’s okay to vote in person.’  We wholeheartedly agree with this view.   Finally, U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr reports more than 1,000 arrests in Operation Legend in which, the federal government partners with local law enforcement officers to take down violent scumbags.  Meanwhile, the dragnet is on for Marquise Love, a BLM supporter who stoved in the head of a passing motorist whose only crime is that he tried to come to the aid of a tranny in Portland, Oregon, who was being beaten and robbed on Sunday night in the 80th straight night of violent protests and riots.  Find this POS and beat his ass.
  69. 2020 Wednesday D: Here is the lineup of NOTABLE speakers at the Democratic Convention in Milwaukee, WI, albeit, most of them virtual: (1) former first lady, senator, and secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton; (2) former President Barack Hussein Obama; (3) House Speaker Nancy Pelosi; (4) Sen. Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren, D-MA; (5) former Rep. Gabby Giffords, D-AZ; (6) Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, D-NM; (7) Gov. Tony Evers, D-WI; and Sen. Kamala Harris, VP nominee, D-CA.  It looks to be ‘another exciting night.’  Speaking of Democrats, former FBI attorney Kevin Clinesmith pleaded guilty in federal court today for tampering with evidence.  He is the first member of the Chinese communists-Democratic Party coup against Donald J. Trump.  Prison for you and loss of the right to practice law.  Stay tuned for more…
  70. 2020 Wednesday E: President Donald J. Trump has suspended or canceled three bilateral agreements with Hong Kong since the Chi-Coms on the mainland have reneged on the guarantees they made with the citizens of the former British Crown Colony. Some of the agreements deal with tax exemptions from international shipping and extradition treaties, making the Beijing bullies angry yet again.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms and their criminality, here are today’s stats for the novel coronavirus they purposely sent around the planet:
  71. 2020 Wednesday F: Here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 22,218,441 confirmed cases, UP by 244,048 cases, 782,883 confirmed deaths, UP by 6,726 deaths, and 14,156,538 confirmed recoveries, UP by 222,006 recoveries. Here are the numbers for the United States: 5,605,858 confirmed cases, UP by 42,212 new cases, 174,963 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,250 new deaths, and 2,852,221 confirmed recoveries, UP by 35,753 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 MF-ers).
  72. 2020 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-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 638,831 confirmed cases, 11,523 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 5,349 confirmed cases, 41 confirmed deaths, and 1,921 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 68,264 confirmed cases, 1,801 confirmed deaths, but like California, the palooka-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, Colorado: 53,901 confirmed number of cases, 1,900 confirmed number of deaths, but like other Blue State locales, NO mention of recoveries in the mile-high state.
  73. 2020 Wednesday H: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,692.88, DOWN 85.19 points (-0.31%). Next, the NASDAQ: 11,146.46, DOWN 64.38 points (-0.57%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,374.85, DOWN 14.93 points (-0.44%).  The price of GOLD is $1,943.70 per troy oz., -26.60 (-1.35%) while the price of SILVER is $26.96 per troy ounce, -0.38 (-1.39%).  The price of PLATINUM is $947.40 per troy oz, -8.90 (-0.93%) while the price of COPPER is $3.00 per pound, -0.0255 (-0.84%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $42.78 per barrel, -0.15 (-0.35%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.92 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros.

Currently, there are 3,755,341 confirmed cases of Kung Flu worldwide, 263,831 confirmed deaths, and 1,245,415 confirmed recoveries. Thank you, communist China.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

 

 

#PF001.1q David Gilmour #17 04-19-2020 (400)

 

During free time from the constant recording and touring of Pink Floyd, guitarist/vocalist David Gilmour, found time to record and release his first solo album, “David Gilmour.”  The album came out on May 25, 1978 and besides the artist featured a sparse lineup to give him the individualistic sound for which he was searching, wanting to ‘introduce himself’ to the world.  Fans of the parent band always claim that Gilmour lacks the ‘creativity’ of his bandmate Roger Waters but here, he demonstrates that that is but a fallacy and something no sane lover of rock music would ever believe.  We hope you will seek it out and consider adding it to your collection- you will love it.
