Question is, does the conflict in Ukraine possess the same spark potential as did the assassination of Austro-Hungarian Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his beloved wife, Sophie? Take out Putin NOW!

  63. 2020 Thursday B: New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, Democrat, raised the top tax rate to 10.75-percent, the highest rate in the nation which is going to drive even more people out of the state and will then fall atop the lower classes to pay.  Insane.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump signed a proclamation at the National Archives today that creates the 1776 Commission, designed to promote positives about the United States, its founding, its history, and its heroes, including slaveowner Cesar Rodney who was the deciding vote on passing the U.S. Constitution.  Friends, we cannot judge people of the past by the standards of today.  Remember that.  Meanwhile, President Trump is encouraging the PAC 10 to begin playing football like the BIG 10.  Speaking of football, tonight’s Thursday Night Football game is between the Cincinnati Bengals v. the Cleveland Browns.  The Browns won 35-30.

  81. 2021 Friday N: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump says what everyone else is thinking, that tomorrow’s ‘Justice for J6 Rally’ is going to be a setup.  We believe that tomorrow’s affair is going to be a “Mumbles” Pelosi setup what with loads of FBI informants, Antifa and Black Lives Matter infiltrators, and that anyone who does not want to end up in the D.C. gulag with the other 400-plus poor souls would be wise to avoid the nation’s capital.  Meanwhile, President Trump blasts one of the losers who voted to impeach him- retiring Rep. Anthony Gonzalez, RINO-OH 16th congressional district, by saying that the Rep.’s vote to impeach him was ‘very stupid.’  It was.  Look at what is happening to the losers who voted to impeach the 45th president.  One by one, they are losing support, becoming impotent, and will soon all be gone.
  82. 2021 Friday O: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden is weighing executive privilege in releasing documents related to President Donald J. Trump and the events of January 06, 2021.  Speaking of slobbering Joe, his approval ratings have imploded down to 44-percent- his lowest yet- which means in reality, the loser’s polls are nearer 34-30-percent than they are 44-percent.  Newsmax host Rob Finnerty says, ‘bye-bye Bide, the future we all knew was coming and didn’t want to admit.’ Meanwhile, in another slap to the feeble dictator, two large polluter nations were absent from Joe Biden’s follow-up climate summit.  Finally, Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry says that ‘Joe Biden’s mandate regarding businesses forcing employees to get the Chi-Com vaccinations is divisive and that it undermines doctors.’
  83. 2021 Friday P: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden regime has interceded in the Purdue Pharma company settlement wanting to go after them some more.  In other Biden regime-related news, the impotent U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken deleted a tweet that said, “The U.S. stands with Hong Kong.”  Chi-Coms didn’t like that, eh?  Next- in something that sounds mighty unconstitutional to most of us here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM, the Biden regime is cutting off the supply of monoclonal antibodies to Red States.
  84. 2021 Friday Q: Joe Biden Regime News II– Nineteen days after blowing up an Afghan ally of the United States and nine members of his family for being the ‘one’ who plotted and carried out the August 27, 2021, suicide bombing that killed 13 American servicemen-and-women, the Pentagon was forced to announce that it had erred taking ‘Taliban intel’ and blowing up this poor man and his family sight unseen.  Oooh, the mighty United States, whacking and stacking God knows who just as it did during the heady days of Obama-Biden.  Still, the Biden regime has better things to do- the U.S. Department of Justice is reviewing the way it holds ‘tranny prisoners’ in federal prisons.
  85. 2021 Friday R: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– Served papers yesterday while on a live radio program conducting an interview, famed political strategist Roger Stone said ‘there’s NO evidence supporting the lawsuit against him’ regarding U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, the geriatric, nonagenarian leader of the House, and her claims of being behind the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021.  We believe you, Roger.  Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin has okayed ‘100 National Guard troops to be on scene for the Saturday rally.’
  86. 2021 Friday S: Political News I– The Republican National Committee has released a new ad showing the countless times that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci has lied, flipflopped, or laid bull crap on the American people. Ronna McDaniel- chair of the RNC- says that ‘Joe Biden’s COVID-19 mandates are the results of his far too many failures.’  Next, Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, says that ‘Joe Biden has NO business forcing COVID-19 mandates on the American people.’  Amen. 
  87. 2021 Friday T: Political News II– Axios reported today- to the dismay of the Biden regime- that under no circumstances will Senator Joe Manchin, D- W. VA, will vote ‘YES’ on the $3.5 trillion infrastructure bill.  Good.  Elsewhere, Arkansas senatorial candidate and U.S. Army veteran Jake Bequette says that the massive crowds attending college football games shows that the American people are ready to return to their lives.  The government had better pay attention to this. 
  88. 2021 Friday U: Political News III– Thirteen hardcore leftist Dems are pushing for expanded unemployment benefits in the infrastructure and budget reconciliation bills.  Meanwhile, Health and Human Services tells Texas abortion providers, “We got your backs.”  Elsewhere, Rep. “Shtupping Steny” Hoyer, D-MD 5th congressional district, says that the House will hold a vote so as to avoid imminent government default and subsequent shutdown.  Elsewhere, as mobs of illegal alien invaders swarm under the Del Rio, Texas, bridge, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says that the “National Guard should be deployed to maintain order under and along that bridge as a swarm of 10,000 or more Haitian ‘asylum seekers’ mills about there.
  89. 2021 Friday V: U.S. Military News– As outrage continues to grow regarding Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Mark A. (Asshole) Milley and his phone calls with the Chi-Coms, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and U.S. National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien say the ‘NSA had NO intel suggesting anything that disingenuous fiction author Bob Woodward says in his new book, “Peril,” existed.  Mr. Woodward says that ‘General Milley called the Chi-Coms to warn them that he would warn them should Trump decide to nuke them in his final days.’  Gen. Milley must face courts marshal for being a traitor.
  90. 2021 Friday W: Business News– Ford Motor Company claims the demand for its EV Ford 150 electric trucks is so great that they are going to invest $250 million to increase production and add another 450 jobs in three plants in Michigan to meet this incredible demand.  Wow.  Meanwhile, Tesla is going to work with regulators on data security, something of which, they seem to have problems.
  91. 2021 Friday X: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– After many years, ‘jinx’ multi-millionaire Robert Durst finally was found guilty of murdering his best friend.  Meanwhile, the judge in the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse- accused of murdering two Antifa POS- said that the prosecution cannot bring up ties between Mr. Rittenhouse and the patriotic organization, the Proud Boys.
  92. 2021 Friday Y: Big Tech News– Get this: the arbiter of what’s ‘true’ on the Internet, Google, and Apple, have removed imprisoned critic of Vladimir Putin- Alexei Navalny’s ‘tactical voting app’ designed to mobilize the Russian people to fight back against the new communist dictator, Mr. Putin.  Meanwhile, Chi-Com intelligence gathering app- TikTok- has a new problem, the so-called ‘devious licks challenge’ that encourages American school-aged kids to break the law via vandalism.  Isn’t it about time we began nuking these sons of bitches?
  93. 2021 Friday Z: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Sadly, the final Sears (and Roebuck) store- north of Chicago, Illinois- is set to close on November 14, 2021.  What a tragedy of mismanagement, not knowing its customers any longer, and being unable to morph with the times.  Sad, extremely sad, it did not have to happen.
  94. 2021 Friday AA: New York State News– Freshman Governor Kathy Hochul, D-NY, has given the people of her state a big gift: 191 freed inmates.  Meanwhile, three people went off on a New York City eatery host for requesting proof of vaccination before allowing them to enter.
  95. 2021 Friday BB: Texas State News– Another Texas death row inmate has had his execution delayed over religious freedom claims.  Meanwhile, Governor Greg Abbott signed a $1.8 billion infrastructure bill to continue erecting the Trump border wall.  The governor said, ‘Joe Biden’s failures to do his job guarding the border has forced Texas to do the federal government’s job at protecting the border and its citizens.’  Meanwhile, state Representative Matt Krause, Republican, is going to primary sitting Attorney General Ken Paxton in 2022.
  96. 2021 Friday CC: Moron News I– Campus Reform students sign a petition to abolish the U.S. Constitution because it’s racist, doesn’t recognize gays, trannys, and people of color.  In other ‘moron news,’ U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-12th congressional district, a person whom capitalism has benefitted immensely, jumped on the socialist train while overseas and says that ‘capitalism has not served the U.S. well.’
  97. 2021 Friday DD: Whacked-Out News of the Day– Today, Los Angeles, California, was announced to be the ‘Bedbug capital of the United States.’  Now that’s a distinction that every town and city in the entire United States covets.  Wow. No wonder we no longer like going to the city of (Fallen) Angels.
  98. 2021 Friday EE: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1695 what with a $400 million jackpot on the line: 17, 32, 40, 59, 61, and Mega 18.  Out of 130,606 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $17,613 apiece.
  99. 2021 Saturday: Observation of the Day– This past Tuesday, Greta Van Susteren had John “Perpetual War” Bolton on her show on Newsmax and the two discussed the possibility of Vladimir Putin resorting to tactical nukes on the battlefield in Ukraine.   Look, if Adolf Hitler had nukes in 1944 or 1945, he would have used them against Great Britain and Russia for sure and the against U.S. if he could have delivered them.  That little cave-dwelling, slope-headed cretin Vladimir Putin sure as heck does have nukes and if he is facing Armageddon, then so will his enemies.  He already has severed energy supplies to the stupid-assed Europeans who came to depend upon him the same way American leaders delivered our country into the pockets of Xi Jinping.  We could be on the cusp of a global catastrophe much like the world was in early summer 1914 because back then, NO one believed that a far-off conflict in Eastern Europe could envelop almost all of the world in its horrifying embrace.  Yet, by the end of the year, three-quarters of the world was involved in the worst bloodletting the globe had ever seen. Serbia is not that far away from Ukraine so it’s easy to see how just the right spark- like a strike on one of Ukraine’s nuclear power plants- could be the spark of the End Times.  Let us pray that someone dispatches Vladimir Putin and soon so we can avoid just such an outcome.  Chef James “Jimmy” Hall.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Cheap Trick next delivered a four-tune EP on June 02, 1980, the acclaimed “Found All the Parts.”  Once again, the band has the same quartet of Rick Nielsen (guitars, backing vocals), Robin Zander (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Tom Petersson (bass, backing vocals), and Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion).  Being an extended play much like a double-sided single with two tunes on either side, the band provides some awesome tunes.  First, we have a cover of the Beatles’ “Day Tripper” followed by “Can’t Hold On” followed by two more tracks, “Such a Good Girl” and “Take Me, I’m Yours.”  You can seek this one out at your favorite site for music or you can purchase the extended version of tomorrow’s offering as it has all four of these tunes added as bonus tracks.  Either way, the decision rests with you and your pocketbook.  Enjoy.

[i] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates. The album, “Rumours,” appeared on Tuesday, 18-January-2011 at our original blog.   We look forward to picking them back up and doing a Round No. 2 which will include the solo efforts of the band members, too.  We thank you.

[ii] Sadly, little Ms. Greta Thunberg is a perfect example of an indoctrinated leftist, frightened into believing that CLIMATE CHANGE is something caused by humans.  Any person who has ever taken a university-level geography class understands that the Sun is the number one driver of all things to do with climate and on every planet in the Solar System that has one, every satellite that has one.  The amount (or lack) of solar flares, sunspots, and the intensity or lessening of the solar winds understands that these are the driving forces of climate change.  We can combat pollution and maintain a pristine environment but we cannot control how hot or cool the summers are or vice versa what the winters are.  Stop scaring people you flipping left-wing climate activists!

1954 Thursday: In the Battle of Dien Bien Phu, having lost Eliane 1 to the People’s Army the preceding night, Lt. Colonel “Gars Pierre” Langlais approves a plan for Major Marcel Bigeard to take it back later in the night/early morning. The size of the camp has been whittled down from more than 1,100 acres to around 640. Every scrap of land is essential to the defenders as is bleeding the communists dry faster than the communists are bleeding them.

  69. 2021 Thursday: JOE BIDEN NEWS– Joe Biden debuted executive actions this morning that he is taking to strip firearms away from the American people.  Most of them are feelgood measures for his whack-a-doodle base but even so, some of them have teeth- if anyone will obey them (which, we here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM have no intention of doing.  NO one is taking our firearms away, no one).  Next, Joe Biden nominated perhaps the worst person to become head of the ATF- the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (and Explosives), David Chipman, the dimwit who transformed the debacle at Waco, Texas, into what it became by lying through his teeth about things that SUPPOSEDLY occurred there, but which did not, and which then led to the deaths of mostly women- many of them pregnant- and children.  This was one of the shining events that occurred during the Bill Clinton administration, overseen by Attorney-General Janet Reno.   Congressman Ken Buck, R-CO 4th congressional district says that Chipman is the absolute worst person to head the ATF.
  70. 2021 Thursday A: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE–  Texas Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, came out today and lit the Biden administration up for the appalling conditions in Border Patrol facilities holding tens of thousands of illegal alien, river-swimming, or fence-jumping invaders.  He condemns the Biden administration for its shocking lack of compassion and sensitivity and demands they close these facilities now which means these people should be loaded aboard empty airliners and dumped back in Guatemala.  Let THEM sort them out seeing as how they are a major starting point for this invasion.  Build the wall and deport them all, now.  Anyhow, Governor Abbott pointed out the human rights abuses such as rampant sexual assaults on women, children, and weaklings as well as shortages of food, medical supplies, clean water, and proper clothing and bedding.  IF these horrendous practices occurred under the Trump administration, President Trump would be visiting Old Sparky but under Joe Biden, “No problem, amigos, no problem”… Finally, people continue asking where the nation’s ‘border czar,’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris is.  She has been traveling around the country but nowhere near the border.  At least Cuban-born U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is visiting the border today.  Praise the Lord! 
  71. 2021 Thursday B: MASS SHOOTING AND CRIME NEWS–  We learned early today that in Rock Hill, S.C., former NFL player Phillip Adams shot and killed Dr. Robert Lesslie and his wife, Barbara Lesslie along with their two grandchildren- ages 5 and 9- in their home as well as two air conditioning technicians working outside their home.  One of the techs survived and called in for help and when police arrived, they found evidence that led them to the home of Adams’ parents where they encircled the home after getting his mother and father out of the home.  Adams then shot himself.  No one knows why he did what he did.  Later in the day, following Joe Biden’s mumbling stumbling bumbling announcement on various executive actions he is taking to strip guns away from the American people, a mass shooting occurred in Texas.  Like clockwork, in Bryan, Texas, a gunman entered the corporate offices of Kent Moore Cabinets and shot seven people, some of them critically, but none of them dead at the time of this reporting.  Police are purportedly chasing several suspects so we will provide updates as we learn them.
  72. 2021 Thursday C: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS– The communist Chinese in Beijing warned their stooge- “Pro-China Joe” Biden- today that he had better not boycott the 2022 Winter Olympics in their capital city.  We say, “F**k them!  Who do you think you are, you commie bastards?’  Next, the Biden administration announced that it is going to lift ALL sanctions on the crap-hole nation of Iran without seeking anything in return.  Good for you, Joe, good for you. Regarding the Chi-Coms, tech investor Peter Thiel says that ‘Bitcoin’ may very well be a financial tool the communists can use against the United States.  Moving on, France is postponing the French Open to May 30 over fears of COVID-19.  Meanwhile, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says the ‘U.S. policy on Russia is both dumb and ineffective.’  This comes after the Biden administration yesterday evening revived the Trump-Russia collusion scam and Russian interference in U.S. elections by announcing he is going to slam Russia with new sanctions for meddling and hacking.  Okay, Joe.
  73. 2021 Thursday D:  NATIONAL POLITICS– Congressman Lee Zeldin, R-NY 1st congressional district has officially announced he is running to become governor of New York.  Next, Governor Ralph “Black Face” Northam, D-VA, has officially endorsed former Virginia Democrat governor and bagman for Bill and Hillary Clinton- Terry “the Punk” McAuliffe[vii]– to become governor again.  Moving on, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district has demanded that “Kooky Kamala” Harris attend FBI and CIA intel briefings.   Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump is nudging Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson, GOP, to seek another term by giving him his endorsement.   Meanwhile, in a threat to the Joe Biden agenda, following giving his wife a cushy gig, Senator Joe Manchin, D-WV, refuses to allow ‘budget reconciliation’ to be used to pass bills nor will he vote to smack down the Filibuster rule in the U.S. Senate.  God bless you, Senator Manchin.
  74. 2021 Thursday E: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– the National Rifle Association’s Wayne LaPierre says he failed to disclose yacht trips he accepted.  Next, we learned today that the Trump administration tried conducting secret talks in Syria with the goal of freeing American hostages across the Middle East.   Elsewhere, the San Francisco schools system- after spending loads of taxpayer dollars- has decided it will postpone renaming schools named after Americans (or foreigners) who might be RACISTS.    Meanwhile, John Gizzi of Newsmax says that ‘John Boehner,[viii] the former speaker of the House and now a political lobbyist for the Chi-Coms is attacking conservatives while ignoring his own lack of character.’  Ouch.

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.

  54. 2016 Thursday: Pope Francis[vii], an unpopular pontiff with millions of people worldwide shows his true colors when he criticizes presidential hopeful Donald Trump’s Christianity over the billionaire’s promises to build a border wall between the U.S. and Mexico.  WTF, pope?  We cannot enforce our laws.  You have walls surrounding the Vatican City, tear them down or STFU.  Elsewhere, South Korea announces that it has intelligence that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has personally given his intelligence services the go-ahead to launch terrorist attacks in the South.
  55. 2017 Saturday: Former American abortion activist Norma McCorvey, the “Jane Roe” in Roe v. Wade, dies at age 69.  She later became pro-life, much to the horror of the pro-Death movement.  Elsewhere, in the freestyle wrestling event at wrestling’s World Cup, Iran defeats the United States.  Wow.
  56. 2018 Sunday: An Iranian airlines flight crashes in the Zagros Mountains, killing all 66 people on board.   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump sends out a series of Tweets in which, he expresses his displeasure on a variety of things.  Here is what he said in some of his messages: “If it was the GOAL of Russia to create discord, disruption and chaos within the U.S. then, with all of the Committee Hearings, Investigations and Party hatred, they have succeeded beyond their wildest dreams.

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.

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. 

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

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

  49. 2008 Wednesday: Following Palestinian militants blowing up a portion of Israel’s wall along the Gaza Strip, tens of thousands flee into Egypt fearful of the retribution they are smart enough to know is coming their way.  (Note- why don’t peace-loving Palestinians overthrow these thugs who rob them blind and make their lives miserable).
  50. 2009 Friday: The 16th U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood assumed office on this date.  A Republican, he served under President Barack Hussein Obama from January 23, 2009, to July 02, 2013.  Elsewhere, Empire State Governor David Paterson, Democrat, local politician, Kirsten Gillibrand, to fill Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton’s seat in the U.S. Senate.  Senator Clinton left her seat to serve in the Obama administration as its secretary of state.

  57. 2015 Friday: After spending three weeks in the hospital for pneumonia, 90-year-old Saudi monarch, King Abdulla bin Abdulaziz loses his fight with the disease and dies.  Elsewhere, the Doomsday Clock jumps forward by two minutes leaving it but three short minutes before midnight, when everything will sputter to an end, thanks in part to nuclear proliferation around the world as well as the perils posed to the planet by Climate Change.
  58. 2016 Saturday: Following an outbreak of zika virus in Brazil, the governments of Jamaica, El Salvador, Colombia, and Ecuador advise women to delay pregnancies for two years.  Meanwhile, the migrant crisis continues worsening in Europe.  At least 200 ‘migrants’ from the Middle East and Africa attempt to storm the Calais Chunnel area so they can cross into Britain.  The French are able to foil the attempt but it’s easy to understand WHY the British people want Brexit.  The Continent is out of control.  Elsewhere, New York former mayor and billionaire is considering launching an independent presidential bid for 2016.
  59. 2017 Monday: Tornados and thunderstorms across Mississippi and Georgia leave 18 people dead.  Meanwhile, President Donald J.

  60. 2018 Tuesday: In Saudi Arabia in the King Abdulaziz Camel Beauty Contest, 12 camels undergo disqualification after their owners ‘confessed’ to having used Botox on the lips of their animals.  Did the owners lose their heads, too?  No one knows.  Meanwhile, the ‘religion of peace’- Islam- strikes yet again, this time in Benghazi, Libya, as a double car bomb goes off in a busy district blowing 33 people to meet Mohammad and wounds dozens and dozens of other unsuspecting souls.  Will they ever stop?  Elsewhere, the U.S. Senate confirms Jerome Powell to be the next chair of the Federal Reserve by a vote of 84-13.
  61. 2019 Wednesday: Citing the shutdown of the federal government, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi disinvites President Donald J. Trump from giving his SOTU address.  He did it about one month later after the government reopened for business.  Meanwhile, furloughed federal workers swamp the Senate building to protest the ongoing federal government shutdown.  Who let them in?  Where was security? 
  62. 2019 Wednesday A: Elsewhere, the criminal government of Venezuela accuses the Trump administration of ‘engineering a coup’ against the ‘kind, gentle, and loving’ administration of thug President Nicolas Maduro.  Simultaneously, opposition leader Juan Guaidó takes the oath of office as Venezuela’s next president because he did WIN the election until he ‘didn’t.’  The fact that the U.S., Canada, and other Western nations recognize him as the president doesn’t mean s**t as long as the Chi-Coms, the Russians, the Cubans, and the Iranians continue their support of the Maduro regime.
  63. 2020 Thursday: Fighting continues in Syria as rebels attempt to storm rebel positions in Idlib Province.  Russian and Syrian troops throw the rebels back, killing at least 50 Islamists dead and another 90 wounded while the Syrian government forces lost about half that number.   Meanwhile, in Wuhan, China, nearly 850 cases of the coronavirus with at least 25 fatalities are counted.  Singapore declares its first case of the COVID-19.  The virus is spreading.
  64. 2021 Saturday: As ‘President’ Joe Biden continues signing executive orders favorable to not only the American left but to the Chi-Coms, Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio decries the implementation of the far-left agenda and the loss of what will be more than 1 million jobs in the first week of the ‘Biden regime.’  You should have stood for President Trump, Little Marco, but you were missing in action.  You and your ‘hand size.’  Next, we learn that 150 National Guard troops in D.C. ‘to protect the illicit administration from the American people’ are COVID-19 positive.  Thank you, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi for sending them to sleep in a parking structure.  YOU MUST BE IMPEACHED.  Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader Charles “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says the impeachment trial for ‘ex-President’ Donald J. Trump will commence on February 8 even though Chief Justice John Roberts says he won’t preside over it (at least until Antifa mobs show up outside his home and ‘persuade him’ otherwise).
  65. 2021 Saturday A: The National Republican Congressional Committee has thrown the 10 House members who voted to impeach President Donald J. Trump to the wolves saying they will NOT intervene in Republican primaries in 2022.  Justice is heading your way, you worthless scumbags.  Meanwhile, for some inexplicable reason, ‘President’ Joe Biden trashes President Trump’s executive order slashing drug prices for the American people.  WTF did you do something like this you decrepit old POS.  What the hell is wrong with that?  Elsewhere, Doug Schoen, now with Newsmax TV, says, “More legislation and less executive orders,” ‘President’ Biden.   Finally, in Moscow, Russian police arrest 2,1000 people demanding the immediate release of Alexei Navalny, opposition leader towards thug Vladimir Putin.
  66. 2021 Saturday B: The ACLU is demanding that all states add an “X” to their official documents when it comes to listing one’s sex.  What a load of crap, there are TWO biological sexes, period.  For people that claim to listen to science it’s shocking that they pick and choose what ‘science’ with which to listen.  Stupid.  Elsewhere, the NFL- thumping its chest with pride- is going to give 7,500 Super Bowl LV tickets to vaccinated healthcare workers.  How noble of you.  Meanwhile, also in a moment of chest-thumping, Twitter says that following Inauguration violence across the country, it’s suspending the accounts of Antifa.  Wow.  Really big of you!  Finally, in South Dakota, unemployment has fallen to 3-percent or lower thanks to the state’s decision to keep everything up-and-running.  In places such as New York that closed everything down, the ignoramus Governor Andrew Cuomo is demanding ‘President’ Joe Biden give him $15 billion in bailout funds.  We hope YOU go down, you homicidal POS.

Elsewhere, Steve Forbes tells Newsmax that an ‘economic crisis’ is coming soon.  You had better believe it.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next live album released by British folk-rock veterans, Fairport Convention, “On the Ledge- 35th Anniversary Concert,” came out on October 31, 2007, and featured 2-discs of music culled from a couple of shows at one venue during the band’s annual winter tour of their native UK.  The lineup features the ongoing quintet of Ric Sanders (violins), Dave Pegg (acoustic and electric basses, and tenor mandola), Simon Nichol (guitars and vocals), Gerry Conway (drums), and Chris Leslie (mandolins, fiddles, cellos, and flutes).  As always, the performances are celebrated, and the selection of tunes has something for every fan of the band no matter how long they have been following them.   We hope you will expend a small bit of effort to seek this one out, give it a good listen, and then add it to your collection in the format, the condition, and the price that works best for you.  You will be glad you did.

ENDNOTES:

[i] We truly look forward to promoting the music of Cheap Trick in the next decade or so.

[ii] We began offering music by the supergroup Cream on Friday, 17-January-2014 through Monday, 03-February-2014.  Please seek out their albums by visiting posts on those corresponding dates.  You will be glad you did.  Sadly, at the time, we also should have presented the solo catalogs of Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce, and Ginger Baker.  We hope to do so at some point within the next decade or so.

[iii] We will present the music of Chicago sometime in 2030 so we hope you will remain with us until then.

[iv] We hope to share the music of Lynyrd Skynyrd sometime in the next decade.  At least by 2029 so please stay tuned for further news.

[v] We will never stoop to promoting the music of this moron, Justin Bieber.  What a pathetic loser. 

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

IN ELEVEN MONTHS, WE COULD LOSE JOE.  WE MUST HELP HIM BY HELPING DEMOCRATS.  ALOHA.  SEE YOU IN SIX MONTHS, OR SO WE HOPE…

2021 Saturday: In the aftermath of the Antifa-lead Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, federal investigators are putting government agencies under the spotlight to see who might have enabled the mobs to enter the Capitol. We see this as a combination of the “Night of the Long Knives” and the “Reichstag Fire” as being used by the Democrats and their RINO stooge allies on behalf of Beijing. Stay tuned. Meanwhile, Facebook- the nation’s self-appointed ministry of truth- is blocking all talk of events associated with Inauguration Day on January 20.

  65. 2021 Saturday:  In the aftermath of the Antifa-lead Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, federal investigators are putting government agencies under the spotlight to see who might have enabled the mobs to enter the Capitol.  We see this as a combination of the “Night of the Long Knives” and the “Reichstag Fire” as being used by the Democrats and their RINO stooge allies on behalf of Beijing.  Stay tuned.  Meanwhile, Facebook- the nation’s self-appointed ministry of truth- is blocking all talk of events associated with Inauguration Day on January 20.

  69. 2021 Saturday D: New Jersey Governor “Slimy Phil” Murphy, pseudo dictator of the state, orders all state government workers who can to work from home in advance of the expected protests coming around Inauguration Day.  Remember- we believe the Democrats conspired to set the Capitol Hill riots in motion just as they are conspiring to send their Antifa and BLM Brown Shirts into the streets to carry out a FALSE FLAG OPERATION with which to dirty Trump supporters.  They know what’s coming and we know what’s coming.  Democrat Party-sanctioned violence on January 20.   Meanwhile, many now believe the reason for all the security in Washington, D.C., on Inauguration Day with which to ‘prohibit’ attendees of the FAKE PRESIDENT’S inauguration is because very few were going to attend it anyway.  They want to spare decrepit Old Beijing Biden any embarrassment.   Finally, more videos continue coming to light- many filmed by the Antifa dimwits themselves- showing they were the ones behind the storming of the U.S. Capitol and that they did indeed have help from within the building from Capitol Hill cops and Democrat staffers.  More to come on this story…
  70. 2021 Saturday E:  Backfiring in New York state Attorney General Leticia “Jive Ass” James’ face, the National Rifle Association- the world’s oldest civil rights organization founded in 1871- files Chapter 13 bankruptcy in the Empire State because since it was chartered there, AG James thought she could break them up.  After the NRA relocates to Texas, it will reincorporate there.  That’s another corporation New York state tax collectors cannot suck the life out of.  Wow. 
  71. 2021 Saturday F: White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany will conduct her final duties from the state of Florida, ahead of what many expect to be a crazy week in D.C. thanks to Chi-Com-Democratic Party machinations.  Elsewhere, Vice President Mike Pence speaks at the Lemoore Naval Air Station in California today as events honoring Chuck Yeager continue.  Next, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, warns his colleagues in the U.S. Senate that voting for President Donald J. Trump’s conviction in the second BS impeachment could have long-lasting ramifications for the GOP.  You better believe it.  All the money “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell begged for GOP senators he planned to throw under the bus- Martha McSally, Cory Gardner, David Perdue, Kelly Loeffler, and candidate John James- was for NOTHING.  It won’t happen again.
  72. 2021 Saturday G: Criticism continues befalling “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s ‘economic recovery plan’- if you can call such a mess a ‘plan’- continues to mount.  A job-killing increase in minimum wage across the board, paid parental family leave, $350 billion to help BLUE STATE and LOCAL governments to cover costs for damage THEY caused is making this monstrosity appear dead on arrival- DOA.  Add to that help for illegal aliens, climate change, and all sorts of other crazy stuff and you can smell this brewing disaster from 20 miles away.   Meanwhile, feeble old “Pro-China Joe” Biden proclaims, “Science will be at the forefront of my administration.”  Uh, okay, why don’t you ever listen to science on when fetuses begin to feel pain?  That’s proven science, Joe, not the crazy crap to which, you and your fellow liberals subscribe.  
  73. 2021 Saturday H: Next, the incoming ‘46th president’ continues filling out the U.S. State Department with retreads while at the same time, his incoming press secretary says, ‘all White House visitor logs will be made public’ seeing as how during Obama-Biden, all sorts of oligarchs were meeting with then-VP Biden in secret.
  74. 2021 Saturday I: CIA Director Gina Haspel threatened to quit when President Trump sought to make Kash Patel her deputy back in December.  She should have been fired with FBI Director Christopher Wray long ago.   Meanwhile, the Trump administration carries out its 13th and final federal death row execution.   Next, more Trump pardons expected to come, Steve Bannon among them.

Trump is second only to what happened to President Abraham Lincoln.’  Next, John McLaughlin tells Newsmax TV that a ‘big backlash is coming.’  Elsewhere, famed attorney Alan Dershowitz says the ‘House violated the U.S. Constitution with the rushed second bogus impeachment attempt of President Trump.
  76. 2021 Saturday K: Always up to no good, the Iranians fire loads of missiles into the Indian Ocean which come down perilously close to a commercial freighter plying the waters and 100 miles distant from the U.S.S. Nimitz carrier strike force sailing towards the Persian Gulf.  President Trump: please nuke these wannabe modern day Persian Empire mopes before you leave office. Ronald Reagan sunk their entire navy, let’s do it again.

ENDNOTES:

[i] We look forward to doing the Clash but expect to do Supertramp first, then Pink Floyd, then Electric Light Orchestra/the Move, then Yes, and then perhaps the Clash.  They are among the amazing British rock bands of the 1970s and deserve to be acknowledged as such.

[ii] We promoted the music of this venerable British rock star- Peter Frampton- as part of a series of interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This included the Small Faces, Faces, Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood, Jeff Beck, Steve Marriott, Humble Pie, and other interconnected parts.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.  The actual album, “Frampton Comes Alive” appeared on Thursday, 15-May-2014.  We hope you will seek it out and consider adding it to your collection.

[iii] We first began promoting the music of Trapeze beginning on Monday, 15-October-2018 through Saturday, 27-October-2018.  We hope you will seek the music of this famed band out and consider adding it to your collection.

[iv] We have no clue as to when- or if- we will ever get around to promoting the music of Judas Priest.  Stick around long enough and you might be here on the day when we do.

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

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

  61. 2020 Thursday A: The GOP is fearful of losing the U.S. Senate in November what with Maine’s Susan Collins at 42-percent while her Democratic challenger, Sarah Gideon is at 54-percent.  It is important to note that Maine has one of the most corrupt and crooked methods of electing people, that those who win on Election Day typically lose a couple of weeks later.  Meanwhile, in South Carolina’s senatorial election, GOP Senator Lindsey Graham and his Democratic Party challenger Jaime Gideon are in a dead heat at 48-percent apiece.  We shall see.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Department of Justice announces that it is looking into possible civil and/or criminal charges against officials in cities that abrogated their duties of protecting life, liberty, and property, what all elected leaders are charged to do, defend the U.S., and state constitutions and to enforce all laws, especially those protecting the people.   
  62. 2020 Thursday B: New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, Democrat, raised the top tax rate to 10.75-percent, the highest rate in the nation which is going to drive even more people out of the state and will then fall atop the lower classes to pay.  Insane.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump signed a proclamation at the National Archives today that creates the 1776 Commission, designed to promote positives about the United States, its founding, its history, and its heroes, including slaveowner Cesar Rodney who was the deciding vote on passing the U.S. Constitution.  Friends, we cannot judge people of the past by the standards of today.  Remember that.  Meanwhile, President Trump is encouraging the PAC 10 to begin playing football like the BIG 10.  Speaking of football, tonight’s Thursday Night Football game is between the Cincinnati Bengals v. the Cleveland Browns.  The Browns won 35-30.
  63. 2020 Thursday C: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Yellow Fever, Chi-Com Virus- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 29,994,772 confirmed cases, +338,268, 942,989, confirmed deaths, +6,084, and 20,375,450 confirmed recoveries, +229,062.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 6,743,733 confirmed cases, up 39,608 from yesterday’s reporting, 200,229 confirmed deaths, UP 932, and 3,649,836 confirmed recoveries, UP 13,258.  Here are the stats for Israel now that Mo is living there: 172,322 confirmed cases, 1,165 confirmed deaths, and 125,671 confirmed recoveries. 
  64. 2020 Thursday D: 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: 773,318 confirmed cases, 14,716 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 11,052 confirmed cases, 103 confirmed deaths, and 4,105 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 84,810 confirmed cases, 2,113 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Texas- currently, they have 706,034 confirmed cases, 14,803 confirmed deaths, and 590,837 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Greg Abbot for being honest with the American people.
  65. 2020 Thursday E: We had a FAIRLY LARGE SELL-OFF today.  Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 27,901.98, DOWN 130.40 points (-0.47%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  10,910.28, DOWN 140.19 points (-1.27%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,357.01, DOWN 28.48 points (-0.84%).  Price of GOLD: $1,953.80 per troy oz., +3.90 (+0.20%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $27.29 per troy oz., +0.19 (+0.70%).  Price of PLATINUM: $939.60 per troy oz., +8.70 (+0.93%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,339.50 per troy oz., +1.00 (+0.04%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.08 per #, +0.0125 (+0.41%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $41.04, +0.07 (+0.17%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.76 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.84 euros.  Conversely, one dollar U.S. = 29.12 Taiwanese dollars.
  66. 2021 Friday: We encourage everyone top remain alert for whatever collusion the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party hacks cause today; stick around and find out…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next archival release from the vaults of Jethro Tull- “Play in Time Live 1970” came out on July 16, 2021.  The first disc on the collection is the “Midnight in Chicago” show from a few offerings back while the second disc features a show that is similar to the “Nothing Is Easy” album we have shared with the readership several times.  What is important is that these albums feature the earlier band when the fire was still blazing away in their bellies and every show was an experience to behold.  We hope you will see this one out, give it a good listen, and enjoy for the ages.  You most certainly will be glad you did.

ENDNOTES:


[i] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates. The album, “Rumours,” appeared on Tuesday, 18-January-2011 at our original blog.   We look forward to picking them back up and doing a Round No. 2 which will include the solo efforts of the band members, too.  We thank you.

[ii] Sadly, little Ms. Greta Thunberg is a perfect example of an indoctrinated leftist, frightened into believing that CLIMATE CHANGE is something caused by humans.  Any person who has ever taken a university-level geography class understands that the Sun is the number one driver of all things to do with climate and on every planet in the Solar System that has one, every satellite that has one.  The amount (or lack) of solar flares, sunspots, and the intensity or lessening of the solar winds understands that these are the driving forces of climate change.  We can combat pollution and maintain a pristine environment but we cannot control how hot or cool the summers are or vice versa what the winters are.  Stop scaring people you flipping left-wing climate activists!

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

U. 1943 Saturday A: Elsewhere, on the Eastern Front, at the Wolf’s Lair in East Prussia, Adolf Hitler’s thinking grows irrational as he begins considering forming a new battalion of new Panther tanks to carry supplies to the dying Sixth Army trapped within Stalingrad. When confronted with reality, Hitler ordered the liaison officer with Stalingrad, Major Coelstin von Zitzewitz to inform General Friedrich Paulus that ‘surrender was out of the question- troops to resist to the last man.’

  48. 2019 Wednesday: Citing the shutdown of the federal government, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi disinvites President Donald J. Trump from giving his SOTU address.  He did it about one month later after the government reopened for business.  Meanwhile, furloughed federal workers swamp the Senate building to protest the ongoing federal government shutdown.  Who let them in?  Where was security?

  50. 2020 Thursday: Fighting continues in Syria as rebels attempt to storm rebel positions in Idlib Province.  Russian and Syrian troops throw the rebels back, killing at least 50 Islamists dead and another 90 wounded while the Syrian government forces lost about half that number.   Meanwhile, in Wuhan, China, nearly 850 cases of the coronavirus with at least 25 fatalities are counted.  Singapore declares its first case of the COVID-19.  The virus is spreading.

Trump will commence on February 8 even though Chief Justice John Roberts says he won’t preside over it (at least until Antifa mobs show up outside his home and ‘persuade him’ otherwise).
  52. 2021 Saturday A: The National Republican Congressional Committee has thrown the 10 House members who voted to impeach President Donald J. Trump to the wolves saying they will NOT intervene in Republican primaries in 2022.  Justice is heading your way, you worthless scumbags.  Meanwhile, for some inexplicable reason, ‘President’ Joe Biden trashes President Trump’s executive order slashing drug prices for the American people.  WTF did you do something like this you decrepit old POS.  What the hell is wrong with that?  Elsewhere, Doug Schoen, now with Newsmax TV, says, “More legislation and less executive orders,” ‘President’ Biden.   Finally, in Moscow, Russian police arrest 2,1000 people demanding the immediate release of Alexei Navalny, opposition leader towards thug Vladimir Putin.
  53. 2021 Saturday B: The ACLU is demanding that all states add an “X” to their official documents when it comes to listing one’s sex.  What a load of crap, there are TWO biological sexes, period.  For people that claim to listen to science it’s shocking that they pick and choose what ‘science’ with which to listen.  Stupid.  Elsewhere, the NFL- thumping its chest with pride- is going to give 7,500 Super Bowl LV tickets to vaccinated healthcare workers.  How noble of you.  Meanwhile, also in a moment of chest-thumping, Twitter says that following Inauguration violence across the country, it’s suspending the accounts of Antifa.  Wow.  Really big of you!  Finally, in South Dakota, unemployment has fallen to 3-percent or lower thanks to the state’s decision to keep everything up-and-running.  In places such as New York that closed everything down, the ignoramus Governor Andrew Cuomo is demanding ‘President’ Joe Biden give him $15 billion in bailout funds.  We hope YOU go down, you homicidal POS.
  54. 2021 Saturday C: COVID-19 Daily Update:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 98,288,147 confirmed cases, +541,350, 2,109,758, confirmed deaths, +12,495, and 54,255,414 confirmed recoveries, +358,448.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 25,109,272 confirmed cases, up 247,884 from yesterday’s reporting, 419,058 confirmed deaths, UP 5,799, and 10,974,161 confirmed recoveries, UP 128,723.  We learn that famed TV personality Larry King died at age 87 due to COVID-19. 
  55. 2021 Saturday D: 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: 3,140,928 confirmed cases, 36,326 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases (again, Hawaii is no longer reporting their case numbers in more than a week), 332 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 302,546 confirmed cases, 4,178 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Alaska: currently, they have 52,901 confirmed cases, 254 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 593,578 confirmed cases, 4,326 confirmed deaths, and 512,469 confirmed recoveries.   
  56. 2021 Saturday E: Stay tuned for tonight’s Super Lotto Draw #3528 with a jackpot of $14 million up for grabs and for the Powerball Drawing #814 with a $20 million pot on the line. First up, we have the Super Lotto numbers- 15, 25, 37, 43, 45, and Mega 12.  Out of 143,211 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO MEGA for a prize of $24,588.  One winning ticket was sold at the Safeway in Newark, CA, 94560 while the other was sold at the 7/11 at Los Gatos, CA, 95030.  Here are the numbers for the Powerball- 05, 08, 17, 27, 28, and Powerball 14.  Powerball for a prize of $33,827 apiece.  Six of the winning tickets were sold in (1) San Francisco Mart I, San Francisco, CA 94116; (2) Shell, Baker, CA 92309; (3) ARCO AM/PM in Bellflower, CA, 90706; (4) Desert Smoke Shop, Desert Hot Springs, CA, 92240; (5) 7-11, San Diego, CA, 92123; (6) Zoo Liquor and Gas, Fresno, CA, 93728.
  57. 2021 Saturday F: Democrats are seeking to rein in expectations over their upcoming ‘immigration bill.’  What?  We thought the 30-50 million illegals infesting our country are getting immediate citizenship and everything that goes with it.  Meanwhile, Dems are also saying that making federal election standards a top priority- what, NO MAIL IN BALLOTS?  Speaking of Democrats, the Chi-Coms are singing a different tune now, claiming that ‘no one on their end was seeking meetings with ‘President’ Joe Biden or members of his administration.  Of course they were and still are- everyone knows it.  They are Joe’s masters so they want immediate payback for having put him in office (or so we allege).

Mueller III informs the New York Times that he subpoenaed Steve Bannon a week earlier to appear before his investigators and spill his guts.

  59. 2021 Saturday:  In the aftermath of the Antifa-lead Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, federal investigators are putting government agencies under the spotlight to see who might have enabled the mobs to enter the Capitol.  We see this as a combination of the “Night of the Long Knives” and the “Reichstag Fire” as being used by the Democrats and their RINO stooge allies on behalf of Beijing.  Stay tuned.  Meanwhile, Facebook- the nation’s self-appointed ministry of truth- is blocking all talk of events associated with Inauguration Day on January 20.   
  60. 2021 Saturday A: Elsewhere, freshman Congressman Madison Cawthorne, the youngest member of Congress, fires back at House Democrats following demands by Democrats in his district to EXPEL him for his part in the Capitol Hill speech given by President Trump prior to the Antifa-instigated riots in the Capitol Building.  Finally, Representative Pat Fallon, R-TX, tells Newsmax that ‘accusations of pre-Capitol Hill riot reconnoitering are baseless.’  After all- and this is being brushed under the rug- the Capitol Hill police warned Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi that the Capitol Hill was in danger of being breeched before the Antifa riots commenced.  Where was “Mumbles?”
  61. 2021 Saturday B: Thanks to mismanagement of California’s wildlands by one Democrat (or RINO) governor after another, the Bonita fire continues burning although firefighters believe they are getting it under control.  Elsewhere, now that “Pro-China Joe” Biden is becoming president, caravans with tens of thousands of illegal aliens are forming in Honduras with the goal of flooding across the southern border and into the ‘shadows’ of the United States.  Neutron bombs anyone?
  62. 2021 Saturday C: The U.S. expresses concern over the favoritism shown by the Mexican government towards state-owned energy companies as opposed to private firms.  Elsewhere, new Google antitrust lawsuit targets play station unfairness as well a ‘Google experiment’ gone awry that prevented Australians from being able to access their news sites online.  Can anyone say this is a run-up to BIG BROTHER ad the control of information around the globe on behalf of the Chi-Coms and their flunkies?   Speaking of corruption, the U.S. government steps up claims that the Chinese Virus did indeed come- whether deliberately or not- from the Wuhan biowarfare laboratory.  We believe it.   Finally, an ally of Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny is arrested by Vladimir Putin’s thugs ahead of the return of Navalny tomorrow to Moscow.
  63. 2021 Saturday D: New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, pseudo dictator of the state, orders all state government workers who can to work from home in advance of the expected protests coming around Inauguration Day.  Remember- we believe the Democrats conspired to set the Capitol Hill riots in motion just as they are conspiring to send their Antifa and BLM Brown Shirts into the streets to carry out a FALSE FLAG OPERATION with which to dirty Trump supporters.  They know what’s coming and we know what’s coming.  Democrat Party-sanctioned violence on January 20.   Meanwhile, many now believe the reason for all the security in Washington, D.C., on Inauguration Day with which to ‘prohibit’ attendees of the FAKE PRESIDENT’S inauguration is because very few were going to attend it anyway.  They want to spare decrepit Old Beijing Biden any embarrassment.   Finally, more videos continue coming to light- many filmed by the Antifa dimwits themselves- showing they were the ones behind the storming of the U.S. Capitol and that they did indeed have help from within the building from Capitol Hill cops and Democrat staffers.  More to come on this story…
  64. 2021 Saturday E:  Backfiring in New York state Attorney General Leticia James’ face, the National Rifle Association- the world’s oldest civil rights organization founded in 1871- files Chapter 13 bankruptcy in the Empire State because since it was chartered there, AG James thought she could break them up.  After the NRA relocates to Texas, it will reincorporate there.  That’s another corporation New York state tax collectors cannot suck the life out of.  Wow. 
  65. 2021 Saturday F: White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany will conduct her final duties from the state of Florida, ahead of what many expect to be a crazy week in D.C. thanks to Chi-Com-Democratic Party machinations.  Elsewhere, Vice President Mike Pence speaks at the Lemoore Naval Air Station in California today as events honoring Chuck Yeager continue.  Next, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, warns his colleagues in the U.S. Senate that voting for President Donald J. Trump’s conviction in the second BS impeachment could have long-lasting ramifications for the GOP.  You better believe it.  All the money “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell begged for GOP senators he planned to throw under the bus- Martha McSally, Cory Gardner, David Perdue, Kelly Loeffler, and candidate John James- was for NOTHING.  It won’t happen again.
  66. 2021 Saturday G: Criticism continues befalling “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s ‘economic recovery plan’- if you can call such a mess a ‘plan’- continues to mount.  A job-killing increase in minimum wage across the board, paid parental family leave, $350 billion to help BLUE STATE and LOCAL governments to cover costs for damage THEY caused is making this monstrosity appear dead on arrival- DOA.  Add to that help for illegal aliens, climate change, and all sorts of other crazy stuff and you can smell this brewing disaster from 20 miles away.   Meanwhile, feeble old “Pro-China Joe” Biden proclaims, “Science will be at the forefront of my administration.”  Uh, okay, why don’t you ever listen to science on when fetuses begin to feel pain?  That’s proven science, Joe, not the crazy crap to which, you and your fellow liberals subscribe.  
  67. 2021 Saturday H: Next, the incoming ‘46th president’ continues filling out the U.S. State Department with retreads while at the same time, his incoming press secretary says, ‘all White House visitor logs will be made public’ seeing as how during Obama-Biden, all sorts of oligarchs were meeting with then-VP Biden in secret.
  68. 2021 Saturday I: CIA Director Gina Haspel threatened to quit when President Trump sought to make Kash Patel her deputy back in December.  She should have been fired with FBI Director Christopher Wray long ago.   Meanwhile, the Trump administration carries out its 13th and final federal death row execution.   Next, more Trump pardons expected to come, Steve Bannon among them.   
  69. 2021 Saturday J: Elsewhere, Lou Dobbs of Fox Business Channel says the assault on President Donald J. Trump is second only to what happened to President Abraham Lincoln.’  Next, John McLaughlin tells Newsmax TV that a ‘big backlash is coming.’  Elsewhere, famed attorney Alan Dershowitz says the ‘House violated the U.S. Constitution with the rushed second bogus impeachment attempt of President Trump.
  70. 2021 Saturday K: Always up to no good, the Iranians fire loads of missiles into the Indian Ocean which come down perilously close to a commercial freighter plying the waters and 100 miles distant from the U.S.S. Nimitz carrier strike force sailing towards the Persian Gulf.  President Trump: please nuke these wannabe modern day Persian Empire mopes before you leave office. Ronald Reagan sunk their entire navy, let’s do it again.

[i] We look forward to doing the Clash but expect to do Supertramp first, then Pink Floyd, then Electric Light Orchestra/the Move, then Yes, and then perhaps the Clash.  They are among the amazing British rock bands of the 1970s and deserve to be acknowledged as such.

[ii] We promoted the music of this venerable British rock star- Peter Frampton- as part of a series of interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This included the Small Faces, Faces, Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood, Jeff Beck, Steve Marriott, Humble Pie, and other interconnected parts.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.  The actual album, “Frampton Comes Alive” appeared on Thursday, 15-May-2014.  We hope you will seek it out and consider adding it to your collection.

[iii] We have no clue as to when- or if- we will ever get around to promoting the music of Judas Priest.  Stick around long enough and you might be here on the day when we do.

  58. 2020 Thursday: A recent poll suggests that 51-percent of ALL Americans support Black Lives Matter- the well-known criminal thug Marxist whereas 44-percent don’t.  Most people never answer pollster’s questions anymore and on this particular topic, who would?  Meanwhile, last week’s first-time jobless claims were at 860,000, 33 thousand less than the previous week.  More people are returning to work and if the fascist governors of California and New York would reopen, unemployment would be plummeting.  Elsewhere, in November, the number of voters voting by mail is expected to be at 80-percent and the Brennan Center for Justice suggests that incidents of voter fraud are between 0.00004-0.00009-percent.  Uh, okay.  New Jersey election officials announce they found 16,000 mail-in ballots from an election in July that mysteriously turned up but did not- we repeat, did not (so they say) alter the election.  Folks, this is all BULLS**T.  The same things have occurred in Pennsylvania and in North Carolina which should inform EVERYONE that this system of voting is fraught with all manner of danger.

  60. 2020 Thursday B: New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, Democrat, raised the top tax rate to 10.75-percent, the highest rate in the nation which is going to drive even more people out of the state and will then fall atop the lower classes to pay.  Insane.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump signed a proclamation at the National Archives today that creates the 1776 Commission, designed to promote positives about the United States, its founding, its history, and its heroes, including slaveowner Cesar Rodney who was the deciding vote on passing the U.S. Constitution.  Friends, we cannot judge people of the past by the standards of today.  Remember that.  Meanwhile, President Trump is encouraging the PAC 10 to begin playing football like the BIG 10.  Speaking of football, tonight’s Thursday Night Football game is between the Cincinnati Bengals v. the Cleveland Browns.  The Browns won 35-30.
  61. 2020 Thursday C: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Yellow Fever, Chi-Com Virus- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 29,994,772 confirmed cases, +338,268, 942,989, confirmed deaths, +6,084, and 20,375,450 confirmed recoveries, +229,062.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 6,743,733 confirmed cases, up 39,608 from yesterday’s reporting, 200,229 confirmed deaths, UP 932, and 3,649,836 confirmed recoveries, UP 13,258.  Here are the stats for Israel now that Mo is living there: 172,322 confirmed cases, 1,165 confirmed deaths, and 125,671 confirmed recoveries. 
  62. 2020 Thursday D: 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: 773,318 confirmed cases, 14,716 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 11,052 confirmed cases, 103 confirmed deaths, and 4,105 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 84,810 confirmed cases, 2,113 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Texas- currently, they have 706,034 confirmed cases, 14,803 confirmed deaths, and 590,837 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Greg Abbot for being honest with the American people.
  63. 2020 Thursday E: We had a FAIRLY LARGE SELL-OFF today.  Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 27,901.98, DOWN 130.40 points (-0.47%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  10,910.28, DOWN 140.19 points (-1.27%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,357.01, DOWN 28.48 points (-0.84%).  Price of GOLD: $1,953.80 per troy oz., +3.90 (+0.20%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $27.29 per troy oz., +0.19 (+0.70%).  Price of PLATINUM: $939.60 per troy oz., +8.70 (+0.93%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,339.50 per troy oz., +1.00 (+0.04%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.08 per #, +0.0125 (+0.41%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $41.04, +0.07 (+0.17%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.76 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.84 euros.  Conversely, one dollar U.S. = 29.12 Taiwanese dollars.
  64. 2020 Thursday F: We encourage everyone top remain alert for whatever collusion the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party hacks cause today; stick around and find out…

FOOTNOTES:


[i] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates. The album, “Rumours,” appeared on Tuesday, 18-January-2011 at our original blog.   We look forward to picking them back up and doing a Round No. 2 which will include the solo efforts of the band members, too.  We thank you.

[ii] Sadly, little Ms. Greta Thunberg is a perfect example of an indoctrinated leftist, frightened into believing that CLIMATE CHANGE is something caused by humans.  Any person who has ever taken a university-level geography class understands that the Sun is the number one driver of all things to do with climate and on every planet in the Solar System that has one, every satellite that has one.  The amount (or lack) of solar flares, sunspots, and the intensity or lessening of the solar winds understands that these are the driving forces of climate change.  We can combat pollution and maintain a pristine environment but we cannot control how hot or cool the summers are or vice versa what the winters are.  Stop scaring people you flipping left-wing climate activists!
