  67. 2018 Tuesday: President Donald J. Trump fires his Secretary of State Rex Tillerson via a Tweet.   From the very beginning, Secretary Tillerson has been an impediment to the Trump agenda.   Tillerson fell for the bull crap the left spread about the events of Charlottesville and what exactly President Trump said regarding that mess. 
  68. 2019 Wednesday: President Donald J. Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort receives and additional 43 months in jail on top of his 47 months for tax evasion and other Deep State-instigated and accused crimes.  Time for the president to pardon the guy.  Meanwhile, President Trump establishes the home of civil rights activists Medgar and Mylie Evers as a national monument in their hometown of Jackson, Mississippi.  Finally, POS California Governor Gavin Newsom- facing recall the following year- declares an indefinite moratorium on the death penalty claiming it discriminates against ‘marginalized communities.’
  69. 2020 Friday: Democrats and the Trump administration continue trying to hammer out a deal that will bring real relief to the American people combatting the Chinese-caused Wuhan Virus, aka COVID-19, which is sweeping the world.  The Democrats continue trying to expand the size of government and to stick in things like additional funding for abortion and other crazy things and the Trump administration and the GOP continue smacking them back and knocking them down.  What is up with the Democrats?  No one knows but they are a bunch of sick f**ks.  Meanwhile, President Trump addresses reporters at the White House and some of the assembled reporters seem eager to know if the president himself might be infected.  Horrible people.  Finally, the State Department ordered the Chinese ambassador to the United States to shut the hell up about trying to connect the U.S. Army to the outbreak of coronavirus that seemingly spilled out of that nation’s ONLY biowarfare lab.  The moratorium on air flights from Europe to the U.S. begins tonight at midnight.
  70. 2021 Saturday: DAY 53 of the BIDEN REGIME…these fools think they are going to confiscate our firearms.  They can try.  The DCCC is launching an ad blitz on television so the Biden administration can take a ‘victory lap’ as though somehow, THEY are the ones who created the vaccines and distributed them to the public.  In fact, they created a commercial showing every living ex-president and former first lady- with the exception of the Trumps!- going on about how miraculous it was we produced several COVID-19 vaccines.  Wow.  Talk about envy, jealousy, and hatred (and do you know what?  It won’t surprise us to see Jeb Bush throw his hat into the ring in 2023.  We agree with what the Reverend Jesse Jackson said several years back: ‘stay out’ d-bushes!’  Amen.).   Note- Joe Biden held a Democrats-only celebration of the ‘Chi-Vi Relief Bill’ in the White House Rose Garden yesterday which pissed off all the Republicans.
  71. 2021 Saturday A: The U.S. Department of the Treasury and the Internal Revenue Service announce that the Biden COVID-19 relief checks are getting underway, perhaps as early as this weekend.  We recall Joe saying before he became president that everyone was going to get $2,000 checks and not $1,400 checks.  Then, they combined the Joe’s payments with President Trump’s payments which means we already got the $600 and now the $1,400 is on the way.  What a scam.  This is taxpayer money, so we are getting our own money back PLUS we’ll have to pay taxes on the money back to the government.  This is the Democratic Party’s infamous money-go-round.  Now, they’re talking about a $4 trillion infrastructure bill- who’s going to do the majority of the work?  Chi-Coms like they do the California High-Speed Rail boondoggle.  All a scam…
  72. 2021 Saturday B: Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says, ‘the Dems are still seeking to take control of U.S. Elections.’  We know this, Mitch.  The question is this: HOW will they circumvent the U.S. Constitution and when H.R. 1 arrives at the U.S. Supreme Court under challenge, what will Chief Justice John Roberts do?  Meanwhile, Republican senators continue badgering their Democrat counterparts and the Biden administration as to when they are going to remove the fencing and razor wire surrounding the U.S. Capitol and White House and when the troops are going to go home?  That phony POS General Russell Honoré says the Capitol’s defense requires 2,500 troops at all times around it; yet only 500 have volunteered to remain?  We guess the ones wanting to return home must be the evil Trumpsters the general seeks to excise like cancer from the U.S. military.  He should remember this: there are more of us than there are of YOU,  general.
  73. 2021 Saturday C: Part of General Honoré’s plan is to remove guns from the American people.  The Democrat sponsored bill seeks to ban ALL military-style assault weapons and magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.  Senator Dianne Feinstein, D-CA, claims the American people who already own such guns and accessories will be able to keep them, but we know that’s all bulls**t.  If they get this through without pushback, those ‘rights’ will vanish, too.  They also want background checks which they always demand but everyone who gets firearms- unless they’re thugs- undergoes background checks.  We prefer ‘somebody stole our guns.’  F**k anyone seeking to take away our 2nd amendment rights.
  74.  2021 Saturday D: Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is backing a new process in his home state that would change how vacancies would be filled within the state if an opening arises.  It would strip the governor- who in this case happens to be Democrat Andy Beshear- of the ability to put a politician of his choice into a vacancy should one arise and permit the heavily GOP-controlled legislature in the driver’s seat.  We like this and we hope the bill becomes law.  The only reason Beshear won the seat back in 2018 is that everyone despised the Republican who held the seat- Matt Bevin- at the time.  
  75. 2021 Saturday E: The FCC designates FIVE Chi-Com tech companies as inimical to U.S. national security interests: Huawei, ZTE, Hytera Communications, Hangzhou Hikvision Digital Technology and Dahua Technology.  Each of these companies serves the Ministry of State Security in Beijing, monitoring the globe on behalf of the Chi-Com leadership.  Not good.  In other U.S. national security news, the southern border is still under assault by a tidal wave of illegal aliens from Central America as well as from across the world.  In all of 2019, the Trump administration had ONLY 2,600 illegal alien minors in custody while the Biden administration in just 53 days has 3,200 illegal aliens brats locked up in over-filled containers doing nothing.  Where are all the Democrats screaming and hollering about their mistreatment?  Where are the fake news reporters?  Why has the Biden administration forbidden cameras in the facilities?  We say load them onto buses and deport them NOW.   Even the Mexican president is blasting Joe Biden.  “Trump did a far better job dealing with illegal immigration” or words to that effect.
  76. 2021 Saturday F: The U.S. Department of Justice plans on filing more than 400 cases against the ‘insurrectionists’ that stormed the U.S. Capitol Building on January 06, 2021.  We suspect the Antifa, and Black Lives Matter scum will somehow be released on their own recognizance whereas any true Trump supporters will remain in solitary confinement after the judge throws the book at them.  Such are fascist countries.   In other Joe Biden news, the National Parks Service BANS fireworks at Mt. Rushmore this year.   Meanwhile, Dr. Scott Gottlieb who led the FDA during the Trump administration says, “Americans will be gathering before the Fourth of July.”  Joe Biden had said earlier in the week that we would be ‘lucky’ if we could gather in small groups.  F**k that, too.  The country is getting ready to erupt.  Soon.
  77. 2021 Saturday G: In other news, Vice President Mike Pence and Second Lady Karen Pence announce the birth of their first grandchild.  Next, apparently the Portland, Oregon, cops took the fight to the Antifa human scum and kept them in check after a rough couple of days before.  We hope they begin cracking some skulls and run these scumbags out of the state.  Elsewhere, the Russian cops detain 200 people who were attending an opposition forum.  We learned yesterday that Putin’s No. 1 critic- Alexei Navalny- was moved from a prison near Moscow to an undisclosed black site.  These people want to see him freed.  Now, they probably are going to be joining him.
  78. 2021 Saturday H: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 119,469,346 confirmed cases, +445,489, 2,647,229, confirmed deaths, +8,342, and 67,621,472 confirmed recoveries, +252,910.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,633,697 confirmed cases, up 126,711 from yesterday’s reporting, 538,918 confirmed deaths, UP 3,160, and 115,379,301 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile drooling POS.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 210,441 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- Senile Joe, in another 12 days, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the frigging ‘VID.
  79. 2021 Saturday I: 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: 3,616,872 confirmed cases, 55,336 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,646 confirmed cases, 450 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 351,419 confirmed cases, 5,183 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- North Dakota, aka the Peace Garden State: currently, they have 100,973 confirmed cases, 1,488 confirmed deaths, and 98,797 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 817,799 confirmed cases, 5,988 confirmed deaths, and 776,099 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Peru, the home of the Incan Empire at least until Francisco Pizarro arrived on scene: 1,402,610 cases of the old Hubei Hooey, 48,664 confirmed deaths, and 1,308,175 confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, why even bother- they’re liars. 
  80. 2021 Saturday J: Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.824 per gallon, $3.543 in Hawaii, and $3.252 in Washington state.  Thank you, Joe, how about allowing fracking to continue as well as the Keystone XL Pipeline?  It would be beneficial for the people of this country.   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,048,361,528,794 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.  Cloward and Piven running amok.  The country is going to implode.
  81. 2021 Saturday K: Here are the results for tonight’s Super Lotto Draw #3542 with a $28 million jackpot on the line: 03, 07, 08, 13, 21, and Mega 19.  Out of 117,459 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $39,731.  The 5/5 ticket was sold at La Positas Liquor & Market in Santa Barbara, CA 93105.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #828 with a $169 million jackpot up for grabs- 05, 11, 51, 56, 61, and Powerball 02.  Out of 76,264 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers PLUS the Powerball for a prize of $10,854 apiece.
  82. 2021 Saturday L: Famed middleweight boxing champion “Marvelous Marvin” Hagler died from unexpected causes at age 66.  At one time, he would hold the WBA, WBC, IBF, and The Ring magazine middleweight boxing titles of the world while compiling a pro record of 67 fights, 62 wins (52 KOs), 3 losses, and 2 draws.
  83. 2022 Sunday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Levon Helm returned with his third solo album, “American Son,” on June 17, 1980, which did much to boost the singer/musician’s solo career.  There is no questioning his unique powerful voice, Helm could belt them out with the best of them and sang many of the Band’s most notable songs.  Here- like the best of vocalists, he reinterprets the works of others and does one hell of a job.  Joining Levon Helm (drums, vocals, harmonicas) are Buddy Emmons (perhaps the foremost pedal steel guitarist of our day), Muscle Shoals, Alabama, session drummer Jerry Carrigan, and an ever-growing cast of numerous other talented musicians and vocalists to round out the sound.  We hope you will seek this one out wherever you shop for the absolute best in music.  We think you will enjoy it as much as we do which is a great deal.  Seek it out now.

  84. 2019 Friday: The ladies of the  National U.S. Women’s Soccer Team launch a federal gender discrimination lawsuit against the United States Soccer Federation.   They want equal pay.  We think they should get it.  The age of pay inequality in the United States must end.   Meanwhile, the massive blackout affecting the oil-rich nation of Venezuela enters its second day.  The country looks like North Korea after dark.

  87. 2021 Monday A: U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken says for some inexplicable reason that ‘the U.S. must include BOTH communist China and Iran in engineering the Afghan peace process’ successful conclusion.’  WHY?  The Trump administration had it well underway so now, we must bring in the Iranians and the Chi-Coms?  WTF?  Still, we knew the Biden administration would do stupid s**t such as this.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, we learn today that they are continuing to exploit U.S. cybersecurity weaknesses which is why we must stop the scumbags.
  88. 2021 Monday B: The NYPD continues going about the ‘business of the people,’ cracking down on ILLEGAL PARTIES.  Whoa.  Speaking of New York, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., joins the chorus of state and national lawmakers demanding an investigation into crumbling Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo over the far too many allegations of sexual harassment lodged against him PLUS the fact that between 15,000-20,000 deaths of seniors and disabled folks in the Empire State’s nursing homes.  The man sent Chi-Vi-infected patients into nursing homes where the state’s vulnerable died and then- as they were dying- had them transported back to state hospitals so they would die there, driving up hospital death rates but not the nursing homes.’  Wow.  Still, an ever-defiant Governor Cuomo says, “I WILL NOT RESIGN!  UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!”[ix]  
  89. 2021 Monday C: Speaking of Cuomo killing the state’s nursing home residents, former three-term Governor George Pataki, R-NY, says what Cuomo did to nursing home inmates is ‘beyond the pale’ and ‘highly criminal.’   Heck, even the New York Senate’s majority leader- Andrea Stewart-Cousins- says the guy must go and that person is a Democrat.  NOTE- we are now seeing Harvey Weinstein-like behavior as Gov. Cuomo is trying to ‘buy’ his way to ‘freedom:’ today, he floated the idea of raising taxes on wealthy New Yorkers even though his state has received $12.58 billion in federal COVID-19 money.  This is what libs do when they are in trouble- promise to jack wealthy people in their state, promise to fight for abortion at all stages of gestation and even after birth, and to crush the NRA.  Let us see what he does next.
  90. 2021 Monday D: Police in Pennsylvania report the arrest of a man accused of more than 1,000 auto burglaries since February 2020.  Wow.  Pennsylvania law enforcement is finally doing its job.  In other oddball news, a Harvard professor suggests that ‘comfort women’ used by Japanese troops during World War II were all willing prostitutes.  And this on the 110th International Women’s Day![x]  Meanwhile, NASA Mars scientists encourage girls to ‘reach for the stars.’  Elsewhere, the effort to recall Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom has 1.9 million approved signatures.  This POS is on the way out.    Finally, it’s confirmed that French multi-billionaire ($7.15 billion to be precise) Olivier Dassault lost his life with two others in a helicopter crash yesterday.
  91. 2021 Monday E: In COVID-19 news- numerous states take the big step towards life after the Chi-Vi by making plans to eliminate masks and to reopen their economies and even their schools.   Next, COVID-19 travel insurance could become a valuable tool in the reopening of the world’s countries to hospitality and travel industries.  Next, a new book says world diplomats were warned about the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s numerous problems TWO years prior to the Chi-Coms allowing the Xi Jinping Bat Virus to engulf the world.  Meanwhile, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci now says that ‘fully vaccinated people can mingle with one another sans masks.’  Thank you, Dr. Fauci.  Then, the AMAZING Dr. Fauci throws icy water on that by warning the country, ‘the U.S. can experience a new mass outbreak of the ‘VID by reopening too fast and easing mask mandates.’  Thanks again, Dr. Fauci.   However, the CDC is allowing illegal alien holding pens along the border with Mexico to fill beyond capacity, NOT worrying about the Chi-Vi there.  Likewise, towns in Texas used as dumping sites for illegal aliens, report that one-quarter of the illegals test positive for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.
  92. 2021 Monday F: Pro-Trumper Senator Lindsey Graham is trying to harness the Donald J. Trump magic.   Next, Senator Roy Blunt, R-MO, says he won’t be seeking another term thus opening the seat up for another young gun like Senator Josh Hawley.   Next, Vice President Mike Pence plans on giving a speech- his first since leaving the White House- sometime next month.  Meanwhile, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, blasts Joe Biden’s nominee for deputy secretary of state Windy Sherman over her being a big proponent of abortion ‘rights’ at all moments of gestation and after the child’s birth.  What a horrible human being.  In another move, Joe Biden appoints Erin Pelton as a special adviser for him, a person who lobbied for Qatar.  Wow.
  93. 2021 Monday G: In other Joe Biden news, he is directing the U.S. Department of Education to review Title IX changes made by the Trump administration.   Next, the earpiece in Joe Biden’s ear tells him to announce that he is going to form a Gender Policy Council so he can continue f**king up the country’s young people.  Next, Joe Biden’s secretary of the U.S. Treasury Janet Yellen says the passage of the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill is going to ‘restore the U.S. economy by 2022.’[xi]  Uh, okay, not when you borrow money from the Chi-Coms.  Not when you allow the Chi-Coms to buy up vital U.S. industries such as meat-packing and food preparation as well as allowing them to buy distressed U.S. commercial and residential properties via straw companies thus making them our de facto landlords. 
  94. 2021 Monday H: What else is happening today- the 80th Annual Daytona Beach Bike Week kicks off today.  Next, NBA star Kobe Bryant’s rookie card sells for a cool $1.8 million.  Next, the billionaire ex-wife of Amazon business mogul Jeff Bezos- Mackenzie Scott- marries a high school teacher.  Good for him.  Moving on, famed legal scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz asks the extremely important question of the Cancel Culture- ‘Why stop with Dr. Seuss?’  Speaking of the Cancel Culture, Congressman Matt Gaetz, R-FL, says the real goal behind the “CC” is to drive people into SELF-CENSORSHIP- something free Americans will NEVER submit to, NEVER. Meanwhile, SCOTUS refuses to hear the final Trump era election fraud case, this one a violation of election law in Wisconsin.  Elsewhere, Jason Snead of the Honest Elections Project looks to reestablish faith in the U.S. Elections system.   
  95. 2021 Monday I: In Minnesota, an appeals court orders the return of Third-Degree Murder charges in the trial of former Minneapolis P.D. Officer Derek Chauvin.  State Attorney General Keith Ellison, Democrat, thought he could pull a fast one and go for a second-degree charge of murder.  He can’t and he won’t get it.  Speaking of the trial, it’s already off to a horrible start as jury selections freezes.  Meanwhile, George Floyd’s brother says he hopes for ‘justice, for a conviction’ of Officer Chauvin.  Again, we shall see.[xii] 
  96. 2021 Monday J: The GOP pushes the Biden administration to get an imprisoned U.S. Marine in Russia released and sent home.  Good luck with that, the Biden administration is as impotent as impotence can be.  In other fascinating news, Iran threatens to RAZE Tel Aviv if Israel should attack the ‘peace-loving Islamic Republic of Iran.’  We say, NUKE the hell out of Iran- give them something to suck on in the same way that President Ronald Reagan ordered the sinking of most of their pathetic navy back in the early 1980s.
  97. 2021 Monday K: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 117,060,462 confirmed cases, +459,454, 2,597,318, confirmed deaths, +7,680, and 66,132,420 confirmed recoveries, +211,728.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,293,090 confirmed cases, up 34,149 from yesterday’s reporting, 530,614 confirmed deaths, UP 1,087, and 112,744,650 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile drooling POS.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 202,137 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.   
  98. 2021 Monday L: 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: 3,599,900 confirmed cases, 54,271 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,646 confirmed cases, 445 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 347,422 confirmed cases, 5,108 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Oregon: currently, they have 157,481 confirmed cases, 2,304 confirmed deaths, BUT NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 805,116 confirmed cases, 5,917 confirmed deaths, and 758,541 confirmed recoveries. 
  99. 2021 Monday M: Somehow, the Democrats have been able to drive the markets back up on this Friday- it’s artificial, the collapse is still coming.   Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,802.44, UP 306.14 points (+0.97%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,609.16, DOWN 310.99 points (-2.41%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,821.35, DOWN 20.59 points (-0.54%).  The price of GOLD is $1,682.30 per troy oz., +4.30 (+0.26%) while the price of SILVER is $25.26 per troy ounce, -0.01 (-0.04%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,144.00 per troy oz, -8.30 (-0.72%) while the price of COPPER is $4.09 per pound, +0.00 (+0.01%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,328.50 per troy oz, +6.50 (+0.28%) Same as yesterday.  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $64.93 per barrel, -0.12 (-0.03%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.53 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 21.49.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000019.   In Taiwanese dollars, one greenback equals 28.28.
  100. 2021 Monday N: Greg Kelly reports on Newsmax that Pepe Le Pew, the “Joe Biden of cartoon characters” because of all his hands-on the female character is now CANCELED, too. Meanwhile, the White House praises the courage of Megan Markle and the individual formerly known as “Prince Harry” for sobbing their story to Oprah Winfrey.  Folks, who the f**k cares?  Hopefully, Harry will recognize his mistake sooner while there is still time to repair the self-inflicted damage than later when the royal family will never welcome him back in.  Megan sobbed that the royals worried about the color of baby Archie.  Uh, again, who cares?  Oprah don’t act so flipping shocked, you has-been.  In other news, the family of Ashli Babbitt, slain at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, by a Capitol Hill police officer for still unknown reasons is considering filing a wrongful death lawsuit against the department.   Next, Joe Biden grants temporary immigration status to Venezuelans who have fled their country for the U.S.  Finally, JOE BIDEN IS GOING TO GIVE A PRIME TIME ADDRESS THIS THURSDAY!  Glory, glory hallelujah, glory,  glory hallelujah, glory, glory hallelujah, the world is going to hear the mummy speak!  
  101. 2021 Monday O: On this spectacular 110th International Day of Women (except in crap-hole nations such as Iran, Afghanistan, and Pakistan), Burger King UK tweets out the following statement: “women belong in the kitchen.”  Ooops.  Must have been a joke. Speaking of jokes, the U.S. State Department has zipped its lips and won’t accuse the Chi-Coms of committing mass genocide against the Uighur Muslims in Xinjiang Province.  The State Department is also tiptoeing around the fact that the Chi-Coms are not honoring their commitment to a half-century of incorporation of Hong Kong- former British crown colony- by seeking to corrupt their voting system so that it resembles the authoritarian system on the mainland.  FREE Hong Kong!  FREE Taiwan!  FREE Macao!  FREE Tibet!  FREE Mainland China!  NO MORE COMMUNISM! 
  102. 2021 Monday P: General Russell Honoré concludes his report into the Capitol Hill Riots of January 6, 2021, the good (left-wing) general announces that the Capitol Police Department must have greater authority in times of crisis.  Uh, okay.  Will the increased power allow us to demilitarize our nation’s capital?  Meanwhile, Georgia state lawmakers present a bill that will terminate NO-EXCUSE absentee voting.  The Democrats won’t like this.  Still, if state government won’t enforce the state’s voting laws, what difference does it make?   
  103. 2021 Monday Q: Two of Joe Biden’s picks for top posts in the U.S. Department of Justice promise to rain hell down upon the evildoers behind Antifa- and- Black Lives Matter-instigated-and-led Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021.  Lisa Monaco- nominated to be U.S. Deputy Attorney General and Vanita Gupta- nominated to be Associate Attorney General promise to go after and crush the people threatening our democracy.  Both proclaim to keep the U.S. Department of Justice nonpartisan while assumed U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland says, ‘Donald Trump’s claims of widespread voter fraud are bogus.’  Meanwhile, Joe Biden isn’t budging from his desire to keep the ‘filibuster in place’ even as the rest of his party seeks to overturn it and to ram through all their crazy leftist bull crap ideas.  In other news, liberals are rubbing their hands in glee having heard that an investigation into ‘citizen Donald Trump’ is underway to investigate his claims the 2020 Presidential Election were rigged.  The Democrats can’t let go.
  104. 2022 Tuesday: Day 412 of the Biden Administration- stick around and discover what sort of antics the Chi-Coms and their imposed stooges in the Biden administration are up to today.  It’s going to be good!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The only American in the Band- Levon Helm- struck out on his own for a brief period while the Band was in somewhat of a hiatus.  Thus, he formed his own group which subsequently released the album, “Levon Helm and the RCO All-Stars” on April 15, 1977.  Of the 10 songs on the disc, most of them were covers which is cool because we have a wide range of musical influences here.  The band was more of an orchestra what with Levon Helm (lead and backing vocals/drums), the great Paul Butterfield (harmonicas), Steve “The Colonel” Cropper and Fred Carter Jr. (guitars), Booker T. Jones (keyboards and percussion), the “Night Tripper” aka Mac Rebennack (keyboards and gris-gris), Donald “Duck” Dunn (bass), a horn sections, strings, a conductor, and guest appearances by fellow Band mates Robbie Robertson and Garth Hudson.  We love the album, particularly the Chuck Berry cover of “Havana Moon,” which is why we encourage everyone to seek this album out wherever you can find it- you will be glad you did.  At Amazon, you can pick it up for less than $25 so what the heck?  Seek it out now…

TODAY IN HISTORY, TUESDAY MARCH 08, 2022, BLOG POST #4,476

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

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

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…


Tuesday, March 08, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] Not sure when we will begin presenting the music of this famed American band- the Monkees- but when we do, we also do the solo catalogs of Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork.  Please stay tuned for more information.

[ii] We hope to share the music of the Eagles, Joe Walsh, Don Henley, Glenn Fray, and others, including Poco, sometime in the next decade.  Please remain with us.

[iii] See previous.

[iv] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  At the time however, we overlooked presenting the music of the group’s individual members- Mick Fleetwood, Peter Green, Danny Kirwan, Jeremy Spencer, Bob Welch, Lindsay Buckingham, and Stevie Nicks.  We hope to do that at some point in the near future.  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates.  We thank you.

[v] Not sure when we will get around to doing the music of Three Dog Night but if we ever return to promoting the music of famed rock bands from the 1960s and the 1970s, we sure as heck will include this stellar band, one that is still performing to this day.  We saw them in 2019 and all we can say is “Wow.”

[vi] 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.

[vii] We began promoting the music of the Jimi Hendrix Experience and Jimi Hendrix on Sunday, 22-December-2013 through Thursday, 16-January-2014.  Please check the albums out, you will enjoy them.

[viii] We began promoting the music of the Grateful Dead- including Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Phil Lesh- beginning on Tuesday, 30-August-2011 through Wednesday, 11-January-2012.  Then, we did a second series featuring more albums by this fabled San Francisco band beginning on Friday, 09-August-2013 through Monday, 19-August-2013.  At some point, we will have to do a third series as the music from this band never ends.  Please, seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[ix] New York State Attorney General announced the names of the team investigating the handsy governor today.  Godspeed folks.

[x] Why are we celebrating International Women’s Day?  It’s a flipping joke when liberals want trannys to play in girls’ sports.  There is no reason to celebrate a day such as this until the Western World regains its senses.  We believe- if you want to celebrate trannys- a third category of scholastic sports should be created- tranny sports.  Let’s do that.  Then, we can celebrate International Women’s Day.

[xi] Speaking of Treasury Secretary Yellen, reports suggest she is AWOL from office.  Left-wing news channels and online sites remain mum on her whereabouts or what she might be up to while center and center-right news sites are raising questions about the aged old gal.  We would like to know ourselves. 

[xii] In a similar note- all charges pending for Breonna Taylor’s boyfriend- the target of the police raid that killed Ms. Taylor- have been dropped.   Likewise, in other connected news, the mother of Eric Garner warns that the cops will assassinate the character of the victim, meaning that the Minneapolis P.D. will point out the fact that Floyd was a thug and that he was doped up and overdosing the day of his death.  Just saying.  Grant Stinchfield of Newsmax says the prosecution will be unable to obtain a conviction of 2nd Degree Homicide because of the fact they cannot prove that Officer Chauvin was the cause of Floyd’s death.  The cause of Floyd’s death was DRUGS, primarily fentanyl but other drugs as well. 

GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES, GOD BLESS UKRAINE, AND OTHER COUNTRIES THREATENED BY AUTHORITARIAN REGIMES…

36. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 05, 2022

63. 2021 Friday: One America News and Mike Lindell presented “Absolute Proof” today in which, ALL the evidence related to the Democratic Party-RINO Republican Party STOLE the 2020 Presidential Election for enfeebled Joe Biden in the hours following Election Day November 3, 2020. The evidence is precise, clear, and shocking and if people are genuinely interested in knowing how the Democrats, the RINOs and the Chi-Coms stole the election from Donald Trump and gave it to “Pro-China Joe” Biden, all one need do is to watch the show in its entirety.

  61. 2020 Wednesday: The U.S. Senate took their votes on the articles of impeachment against President Donald John Trump today.  On Article I- Abuse of Power- the Senate voted 52-48 with only RINO Utah Senator Mitt Romney joining the Democrats.  This was not enough to convict the president.  On Article II- Obstruction of Congress- the senators voted 53-47 not to convict.  Acquitted on both charges, the president has been cleared and can continue making America ‘great again.’   Meanwhile, back in Utah, lawmakers there drafted a bill that would allow Utahans to recall a senator from the state for dereliction of duty.   Meanwhile, the family of actor Kirk Douglas reports his death at the age of 103.
  62. 2020 Wednesday A: The Diamond Princess docked in Yokohama Bay, Japan, is under official quarantine, all 3,700 passengers and crew because 10 people for sure have the Chi-Vi- COVID-19.  Elsewhere, in the Iowa Caucus, Senator Bernie Sanders and Mayor Pete Buttigieg are in a virtual tie with 97-percent of the precincts reporting.  Meanwhile, Human Rights Watch reports that 138 asylum seekers from El Salvador have been raped, tortured, and/or murdered (or all three) after the EVIL Trump administration deported them.  Tragic.
  63. 2021 Friday: One America News and Mike Lindell presented “Absolute Proof” today in which, ALL the evidence related to the Democratic Party-RINO Republican Party STOLE the 2020 Presidential Election for enfeebled Joe Biden in the hours following Election Day November 3, 2020.  The evidence is precise, clear, and shocking and if people are genuinely interested in knowing how the Democrats, the RINOs and the Chi-Coms stole the election from Donald Trump and gave it to “Pro-China Joe” Biden, all one need do is to watch the show in its entirety.   Speaking of RINOs, the Nebraska GOP is moving to censure Senator Ben Sasse.   Speaking of losers, the effort to recall California Governor Gavin Newsom is fast approaching the finish line.  We want to boot that POS out of office ASAP.
  64. 2021 Friday A: The U.S. Senate votes to keep the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem permanently much to the horror of rabid Anti-Semites such as Democrats Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, among others.  Meanwhile, the IRS backtracks from its mistaken statement that more than 100,000 Americans won’t qualify for the Joe Biden stimulus.  Speaking of ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden, he says the economy is in ‘bad shape’ and that the Republicans are not doing enough to help him help the economy.   Speaking of Democrats, the Virginia votes to abolish the DEATH PENALTY.  Meanwhile, a bipartisan group of lawmakers are trying to achieve a separate vaccine package separate from the stimulus efforts.
  65. 2021 Friday B: Famed actor Christopher Plummer dies at age 91.  Elsewhere, the Russian physician who initially treated Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny has ‘mysteriously died.’  The Curse of Putin strikes again.  Meanwhile, the United Nations reappoints Michael Bloomberg as its global climate envoy.  Woo-oo.  Finally, National Security Council principals convene to ‘discuss Iran.’  Wow.  There is ONLY one thing to do with Iran and that is to NUKE THEM.   Finally, we learn that President Donald J. Trump is planning a so-called ‘revenge tour’ which will see him touring the country in support of pro-Trump candidates while blasting the scumbag RINOs and Democratic Party bottom-feeders and lowlifes who STOLE the 2020 Presidential Election or who refused to view the abundant evidence of voter fraud and corruption.
  66. 2021 Friday C: Yesterday, the House of Representatives voted to remove Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene from her two committee assignments- Budget and the Education & Labor Committee.  All the Democrats voted in lockstep as did 11 Republicans.  Here is the list of Republicans who joined the other side: (a) Adam Kinzinger of Illinois; (b) Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania; (c) Fred Upton of Michigan; (d) Mario Díaz-Balart of Florida; (e) Nicole Malliotakis of New York (we are surprised she did this); (f) John Katko of New York; (g) Young Kim of California; (h) Chris Smith of New Jersey; (i) Carlos Gimenez of Florida; (j) Chris Jacobs of New York; and (k) Maria Salazar of Florida.  It is interesting to note that Kinzinger, Katko, and Upton also voted to impeach Donald Trump a second time.  Disgusting.   
  67. 2021 Friday D: Here are the numbers for the COVID-19 global pandemic, the planet first: 105,223,208 confirmed cases, +538,813, 2,293,263, confirmed deaths, +15,673, and 58,500,396 confirmed recoveries, +335,421.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 26,976,488 confirmed cases, up 184,705 from yesterday’s reporting, 461,253 confirmed deaths, UP 6,861, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries same as it’s been since ‘Pro-China Joe’ moved into the White House.  NOTE- in the White House 17 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 56,441 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, you said you had a plan- where the f**k is it?
  68. 2021 Friday E: 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: 3,381,278 confirmed cases, 43,062 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,187 confirmed cases, 416 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 321,940 confirmed cases, 4,492 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the United States: Illinois- currently, they have 1,140,341 confirmed cases, 21,497 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 675,618 confirmed cases, 5,001 confirmed deaths, and 589,718 confirmed recoveries.   Speaking of the China Virus, the Pentagon says it will help ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden to deliver the Chi-Vi vaccine to the American people, something President Donald J. Trump planned to do.  Meanwhile, Roger Goodell, NFL commissioner, says he will open all 32 NFL stadiums as mass vaccination sites.  We at the AICPENDBLOG.COM will await everyone to receive their vaccinations first and then after inmates, illegal aliens, and everyone else in the groups Democrats and RINOs love, we will consider getting ours after we observe what happens to the Chosen Groups.  
  69. 2021 Friday F: For a laugh, let’s look at the Chi-Coms’ numbers- they say they have 89,619 cases, +241 from last week, 4,636 confirmed deaths (same as one week ago), and 83,467 confirmed recoveries, +527 from last week.  This, of course, is ALL BULLS**T.  When we had contacts in Hong Kong, they said ‘times the numbers by 100, 150, or 200 times and you would get a somewhat closer picture.’  Vermin-eating scum. 
  70. 2021 Friday G:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,148.24, UP 92.38 points (+0.30%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,856.30, UP 78.55 points (+0.57%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,886.83, UP 15.09 points (+0.39%). Markets are UP because they believe ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden is going to borrow TRILLIONS from the Chi-Coms.  We still predict that by June 2021, the triple whammy of a $15 minimum wage, ongoing pandemic politics, and massive illegal aliens numbers are going to tank the economy worse than 1929.  The price of GOLD is $1,815.20 per troy oz., +2.20 (+0.12%) while the price of SILVER is $27.04 per troy ounce, +0.02 (+0.06%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,137.80 per troy oz, +4.80 (+0.42%) while the price of COPPER is $3.64 per pound, +0.01 (+0.39%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,352.00 per troy oz, +0.60 (+2.62%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.14 per barrel, -0.06 (-0.11%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros while one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chi-Com yuan.  One-dollar U.S. = 0.000026 Bitcoin.  Next, one U.S. greenback = 74.55 Russian rubles.  Meanwhile, the Chinese-engineered pandemic pushes the U.S. trade deficit to a record high in 2020, to $679 billion, a record 12-year high. 
  71. 2021 Friday H: The Biden administration is purportedly going to return to the same immigration policies the Obama-Biden administration had back during 2009-2017 and that is to reopen detention centers where they will house illegal alien minors…in cages.  Why is it okay for Democrats to commit outrageous activities such as these when Republicans attempt to stop human traffickers and are vilified for doing it.   Meanwhile, Pennsylvania Lt. Governor John Fetterman files the paperwork to run for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by RINO Senator Pat Toomey in 2022.   Elsewhere, following Robin Hood’s lifting of curbs on buying GameStop stock at its site, shares begin going up yet again.
  72. 2021 Friday I: Although still under contract, Fox News Channel pulls longtime host Lou Dobbs off the air.  No word on whether he will ever return or not.  (We think he will go to Newsmax or OAN).  One of the reasons for his ‘dismissal,’ Smartmatic- the ALLEGED election-stealing software created in Venezuela to enable Hugo Chavez to steal elections has hammered Fox News and three hosts- Dobbs, Maria Bartiromo, and Judge Jeannine Pirro with a $2.7 billion defamation lawsuit.  Also included in the lawsuit are Rudy Giuliani, Mike Lindell, and Michelle Malkin.  Oh, wah, wah, wah, Smartmatic, YOU know what you did, you devious scumbags.  Next, in the New York House race, Claudia Tenney, Republican, finally overcame Congressman Anthony Brindisi and won her old seat back.  Congratulations.
  73. 2021 Friday J: Communist China demands the World Health Organization investigate the United States as the creator of the Chinese Virus, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, aka COVID-19, etc.  Wow.  The Chi-Coms will do anything to ward off blame for what they’ve done and with Joe Biden in the White House, they could get away with it.  Meanwhile, Cowboys for Trump leader is out of jail on bond, awaiting trial for the January 6, 2021, Antifa-led mob that stormed Capitol Hill.  Elsewhere, Joe Biden says he won’t restore the Bar Association’s role in vetting judges.  Not good.
  74. 2021 Friday K: Here are the numbers for the Mega Millions Draw #1631 with a jackpot of $54 million on the line: 14, 17, 28, 29, 44, and Mega 02.  Out of 67,548 winning tickets, the highest winners in California were three people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $6,017 apiece. 
  75. 2021 Friday L: Elsewhere, heavyweight boxing champion Leon Spinks died in Henderson, Nevada, at age 67 on this date.  Cause of death: advanced prostate cancer.  Spinks did what many people thought was impossible but after just eight pro bouts, Leon beat Muhammad Ali to win the WBA, WBC, and the Ring magazine’s heavyweight boxing titles in 1978.  Later in the year, he would lose it back to Ali in what many people believed was a ‘set-up’ for Ali to win the heavyweight titles three times.  Our opinion: NOT SURE.  Still, Spinks pro-record stood at 46 fights, 26 wins (14 KOs), 17 losses, and 0 draws.
  76. 2022 Saturday:  Join us later today…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Richard Thompson released his next studio album on February 11, 2013, the critically acclaimed “Electric.”  Once a guitar warrior, always a guitar warrior, Thompson knows how to crank ‘em out and this one is as good as it gets.  There is a ‘slim version’ and a ‘deluxe version,’ which is why we encourage everyone to get the deluxe as who does not enjoy additional tunes, right?  The album featured not only Richard on guitars and vocals but his current band consisting of Taras Prodaniuk (bass and vocals), Michael Jerome (drums and vocals), Buddy Miller (guitars), Stuart Duncan (fiddle, mandolin, and vocals), and several others- including Allison Krauss- to round out the sound.  Fans love this album just as we do which is why we encourage everyone to visit Amazon.com or whatever other site you do for the absolute best in rock music- you will be glad you did, of that, we are certain.  Enjoy.

ENDNOTES:

[i] Not sure when we will get around to doing the music of Three Dog Night but if we ever return to promoting the music of famed rock bands from the 1960s and the 1970s, we sure as heck will include this stellar band, one that is still performing to this day.  We saw them in 2019 and all we can say is “Wow.”

[ii] The Atlanta Rhythm Section is another awesome American band, one we sure as heck hope to promote when and if we return to doing music again.

[iii] Not sure when Guns ‘n’ Roses is coming but we hope we will still be alive and will get around to sharing them with the world.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

  64. 2018 Monday:  The Deputy Director of the FBI- the corrupt and anti-Trumper Andrew McCabe resigns his post when in fact the 45th president fired his crooked ass.  Like his former boss, James Comey, he was in neck deep in the coup against President Trump and had to go.
  65. 2019 Tuesday: As things continue going south in Venezuela (no pun intended), the government of that authoritarian country seizes the bank accounts and properties of Juan Guaidó and prohibit him from leaving the country.  It’s tit for tat. Meanwhile, the U.S. hands over frozen Venezuelan assets to the true winner of election, Guaidó.  Meanwhile, in yet another dagger driven into President Trump by members of his administration, DNI Dan Coats contradicts his boss on North Korea, Iran, and ISIS.  ‘North Korea will never denuclearize,’ Iran is a fine country and ‘not working towards the bomb,’ and ISIS is ‘not on the run but still strong as ever.’  Wow.
  66. 2020 Wednesday: The first day of questions posed by Senate ‘jurors’ in the impeachment trial of President Donald J. Trump occurs.  The questions go to the chief justice of the United States Supreme Court- the Honorable John Roberts- who then directs counsels on either side to answer them.  This is a horribly boring period of this sham trial.  Meanwhile, the deadly coronavirus emanating out of communist China continues infecting and killing people throughout Asia and spreads to the United States.  Thank you, China, is this YOUR way of getting back at the Trump trade deal you had to sign?
  67. 2021 Friday: DAY TEN OF THE BIDEN REGIME- stick around to find out what’s going on today.  First of all, the Biden regime is deriding the 45th president’s COVID-19 relief plan while cannibalizing as much of it as it possibly can.  Good old ‘Plagiarist Joe.’  Next, Congressman Steve Scalise, R-LA, slams House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s constant demonization of the Republican Party.  He warns her it must stop.  Good luck with that.  Senile old Nancy is not always cognizant of what she is doing.  Moving on, Representative Matt Gaetz urges House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA, to hold a hearing on Congresswoman Liz Cheney, R-WY, as a leader in the House.  The woman has plummeted like a turd to the bottom of the pond once she voted to impeach former President Donald Trump.  For some inexplicable reason, Newsmax reports that Congress’ approval rating has jumped 10 percent but from what?  Bottom-of-the-barrel numbers.
  68. 2021 Friday A: The United Kingdom causes rancor with the Chi-Coms when the Brits offer the citizens of Hong Kong a pathway to British citizenship.  Wah, wah, wah, Chi-Coms.  STFU.  Meanwhile, the FBI says the pipe bombs ‘discovered’ at the RNC and DNC on January 6, 2021, the day the Antifa-led mob stormed Capitol Hill and overran it and its law enforcement like pot heads rampaging through a Krispy-Kreme donut shop, were planted the previous night.  The timeline also shows that the Capitol Hill Riots with the Antifa and BLM False Flag operation was planned long in advance, so President Trump bears NO responsibility for any of it.  Senator Dick Durbin- censure not looking so bad now, is it?  POS.  Speaking of drugs, Joe Biden is ending the Trump era program to combat the opioid epidemic.  Guess old Joe wants the Chi-Coms to make money off their illicit drug trade once again.  Thanks, Joe.  And people wonder why we say, “HE’S NOT OUR PRESIDENT.”  Speaking of Joe, he’s now staffing a commission to review the U.S. Supreme Court which means he is looking into PACKING IT. 
  69. 2021 Friday B: Here are the numbers for the COVID-19 global pandemic, the planet first: 101,981,446 confirmed cases, +610,190, 2,203,696, confirmed deaths, +16,037, and 56,302,010 confirmed recoveries (lower than reported last week), +377,525.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 26,156,392 confirmed cases, up 177,254 from yesterday’s reporting, 440,880 confirmed deaths, UP 4,271, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries same as the past five days or so.
  70. 2021 Friday C: 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: 3,272,349 confirmed cases, 39,578 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,070 confirmed cases, 407 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 312,042 confirmed cases, 4,328 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the United States: Puerto Rico- currently, they have 126,156 confirmed cases, 1,801 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 633,991 confirmed cases, 4,700 confirmed deaths, and 558,249 confirmed recoveries.   Speaking of the China Virus, the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine is 66-percent effective.  They are seeking FDA approval for emergency use of their product.
  71. 2021 Friday D: For a laugh, let’s look at the Chi-Coms’ numbers- they say they have 89,378 cases, +52, 4,636 confirmed deaths, and 82,940 confirmed recoveries, +70.  This, of course, is ALL BULLS**T.  When we had contacts in Hong Kong, they said times the numbers by 100, 150, or 200 times and you would get a somewhat closer picture.  Insect-eating scum. 
  72. 2021 Friday E:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 29,982.62, DOWN 620.74 points (-2.03%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,070.69, DOWN 266.46 points (-2.00%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,417.24, DOWN 73.14 points (-1.93%). We are beginning to think Joe Biden is the Antichrist.  The price of GOLD is $1,845.90 per troy oz., -1.40 (-0.08%) while the price of SILVER is $27.06 per troy ounce, +0.146 (+0.54%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,079.80 per troy oz, +0.60 (+0.06%) while the price of COPPER is $3.54 per pound, -0.0155 (-0.44%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,208.40 per troy oz, -113.90 (-4.90%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.14 per barrel, -0.06 (-0.11%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros while one-dollar U.S. = 6.42 Chi-Com yuan.  One-dollar U.S. = 0.000029 Bitcoin.  Next, one U.S. greenback = 75.75 Russian rubles.   
  73. 2021 Friday F: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1629: 04, 44, 58, 59, 70, and Mega 03.  With a pot of $25 million, out of 64,781 winning tickets, the highest winner 37 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $500 apiece.   Meanwhile, Hilton Valentine- original guitarist of the British invasion band the Animals[v] died at his home in Wallingford, Connecticut, on this date from unspecified causes at age 77.  See you on the other side, Hilton!  
  74. 2022 Saturday: Everyone knows the drill…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next release from guitar legend Richard Thompson was a four-CD box set: “Walking on a Wire” (August 26, 2009).  This colossal collection is a glorious collection of the guitar-slinger’s repertoire from the years.  One finds a nearly 60-page booklet that goes into great detail about the life and times of this phenomenal artist and priced at less than seventy-five bucks, what the heck can you lose?  If you have yet to introduce the music of this lesser-known guitar virtuosos, well this is a glorious (and economical) way in which one can do it.  We hope you rush out to your nearest seller of classic rock music and add it to your collection.  You will be extremely glad you did, that we guarantee.

  79. 2020 Thursday E: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 2,282,219 confirmed cases, 25,449 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 21,397 confirmed cases, 288 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION OF confirmed recoveries anymore- what is up with YOU, Gov. Ige, you Democrat hack.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 247,575 confirmed cases, 3,486 confirmed deaths, but like California, the gorilla-faced governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, Alabama: 361,226 confirmed number of cases, 4,827 confirmed deaths, and sadly, no mention of the confirmed number of recoveries- thank you.

  81. 2020 Thursday G: In Verona, Pennsylvania, former 76th U.S. Attorney General Richard “Dick” Thornburg died at the age of 88.  A Republican, he served under President Ronald Reagan from August 12, 1985, to August 15, 1991.  Prior to this, he would serve his nation as its 71.1st Acting U.S. attorney general.  In this capacity, he served President Gerald R. Ford from January 20, 1977, to January 26, 1977.
  82. 2021 Friday: Here it is, New Year’s Eve and no one knows what the scoundrels in Beijing or their patsies in the Democratic Party are up to today which is why we encourage everyone to stick around and discover their crimes and misdeeds with us…curious?  We sure the heck are…anyhow, have a safe and sane New Year’s Eve and Day.  God bless, see you all tomorrow.

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

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

72. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, MARCH 13, 2021

38. 1954 Saturday: The Viet Minh begin the siege of the French base at Dien Bien Phu in earnest. The battle would rage for nearly two months until reduced to a small amount of territory and out of supplies, the remainder of the French Union and French Foreign Legion troops surrendered. In the meantime, however, the French would kill tens of thousands of communists. The day starts out as one of expectation and by afternoon, the barrage of shells coming in from the surrounding mountains begins hammering the massive French camp. The Viet Minh are gunning for French artillery emplacements. Outlying camp Isabelle is taking heavy fire as are various Claudine’s, Beatrice’s, and other surrounding outposts. Colonel Christian de Castries named the numerous outlying posts for his girlfriends of whom he had many

  61. 2021 Friday: One America News and Mike Lindell presented “Absolute Proof” today in which, ALL the evidence related to the Democratic Party-RINO Republican Party STOLE the 2020 Presidential Election for enfeebled Joe Biden in the hours following Election Day November 3, 2020.  The evidence is precise, clear, and shocking and if people are genuinely interested in knowing how the Democrats, the RINOs and the Chi-Coms stole the election from Donald Trump and gave it to “Pro-China Joe” Biden, all one need do is to watch the show in its entirety.   Speaking of RINOs, the Nebraska GOP is moving to censure Senator Ben Sasse.   Speaking of losers, the effort to recall California Governor Gavin Newsom is fast approaching the finish line.  We want to boot that POS out of office ASAP.
  62. 2021 Friday A: The U.S. Senate votes to keep the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem permanently much to the horror of rabid Anti-Semites such as Democrats Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, among others.  Meanwhile, the IRS backtracks from its mistaken statement that more than 100,000 Americans won’t qualify for the Joe Biden stimulus.  Speaking of ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden, he says the economy is in ‘bad shape’ and that the Republicans are not doing enough to help him help the economy.   Speaking of Democrats, the Virginia votes to abolish the DEATH PENALTY.  Meanwhile, a bipartisan group of lawmakers are trying to achieve a separate vaccine package separate from the stimulus efforts.
  63. 2021 Friday B: Famed actor Christopher Plummer dies at age 91.  Elsewhere, the Russian physician who initially treated Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny has ‘mysteriously died.’  The Curse of Putin strikes again.  Meanwhile, the United Nations reappoints Michael Bloomberg as its global climate envoy.  Woo-oo.  Finally, National Security Council principals convene to ‘discuss Iran.’  Wow.  There is ONLY one thing to do with Iran and that is to NUKE THEM.   Finally, we learn that President Donald J. Trump is planning a so-called ‘revenge tour’ which will see him touring the country in support of pro-Trump candidates while blasting the scumbag RINOs and Democratic Party bottom-feeders and lowlifes who STOLE the 2020 Presidential Election or who refused to view the abundant evidence of voter fraud and corruption.
  64. 2021 Friday C: Yesterday, the House of Representatives voted to remove Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene from her two committee assignments- Budget and the Education & Labor Committee.  All the Democrats voted in lockstep as did 11 Republicans.  Here is the list of Republicans who joined the other side: (a) Adam Kinzinger of Illinois; (b) Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania; (c) Fred Upton of Michigan; (d) Mario Díaz-Balart of Florida; (e) Nicole Malliotakis of New York (we are surprised she did this); (f) John Katko of New York; (g) Young Kim of California; (h) Chris Smith of New Jersey; (i) Carlos Gimenez of Florida; (j) Chris Jacobs of New York; and (k) Maria Salazar of Florida.  It is interesting to note that Kinzinger, Katko, and Upton also voted to impeach Donald Trump a second time.  Disgusting.
  65. 2021 Friday D: Here are the numbers for the COVID-19 global pandemic, the planet first: 105,223,208 confirmed cases, +538,813, 2,293,263, confirmed deaths, +15,673, and 58,500,396 confirmed recoveries, +335,421.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 26,976,488 confirmed cases, up 184,705 from yesterday’s reporting, 461,253 confirmed deaths, UP 6,861, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries same as it’s been since ‘Pro-China Joe’ moved into the White House.  NOTE- in the White House 17 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 56,441 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, you said you had a plan- where the f**k is it?
  66. 2021 Friday E: 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: 3,381,278 confirmed cases, 43,062 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,187 confirmed cases, 416 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 321,940 confirmed cases, 4,492 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the United States: Illinois- currently, they have 1,140,341 confirmed cases, 21,497 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 675,618 confirmed cases, 5,001 confirmed deaths, and 589,718 confirmed recoveries.   Speaking of the China Virus, the Pentagon says it will help ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden to deliver the Chi-Vi vaccine to the American people, something President Donald J. Trump planned to do.  Meanwhile, Roger Goodell, NFL commissioner, says he will open all 32 NFL stadiums as mass vaccination sites.  We at the AICPENDBLOG.COM will await everyone to receive their vaccinations first and then after inmates, illegal aliens, and everyone else in the groups Democrats and RINOs love, we will consider getting ours after we observe what happens to the Chosen Groups.  
  67. 2021 Friday F: For a laugh, let’s look at the Chi-Coms’ numbers- they say they have 89,619 cases, +241 from last week, 4,636 confirmed deaths (same as one week ago), and 83,467 confirmed recoveries, +527 from last week.  This, of course, is ALL BULLS**T.  When we had contacts in Hong Kong, they said ‘times the numbers by 100, 150, or 200 times and you would get a somewhat closer picture.’  Vermin-eating scum. 
  68. 2021 Friday G:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,148.24, UP 92.38 points (+0.30%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,856.30, UP 78.55 points (+0.57%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,886.83, UP 15.09 points (+0.39%). Markets are UP because they believe ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden is going to borrow TRILLIONS from the Chi-Coms.  We still predict that by June 2021, the triple whammy of a $15 minimum wage, ongoing pandemic politics, and massive illegal aliens numbers are going to tank the economy worse than 1929.  The price of GOLD is $1,815.20 per troy oz., +2.20 (+0.12%) while the price of SILVER is $27.04 per troy ounce, +0.02 (+0.06%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,137.80 per troy oz, +4.80 (+0.42%) while the price of COPPER is $3.64 per pound, +0.01 (+0.39%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,352.00 per troy oz, +0.60 (+2.62%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.14 per barrel, -0.06 (-0.11%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros while one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chi-Com yuan.  One-dollar U.S. = 0.000026 Bitcoin.  Next, one U.S. greenback = 74.55 Russian rubles.  Meanwhile, the Chinese-engineered pandemic pushes the U.S. trade deficit to a record high in 2020, to $679 billion, a record 12-year high. 
  69. 2021 Friday H: The Biden administration is purportedly going to return to the same immigration policies the Obama-Biden administration had back during 2009-2017 and that is to reopen detention centers where they will house illegal alien minors…in cages.  Why is it okay for Democrats to commit outrageous activities such as these when Republicans attempt to stop human traffickers and are vilified for doing it.   Meanwhile, Pennsylvania Lt. Governor John Fetterman files the paperwork to run for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by RINO Senator Pat Toomey in 2022.   Elsewhere, following Robin Hood’s lifting of curbs on buying GameStop stock at its site, shares begin going up yet again.
  70. 2021 Friday I: Although still under contract, Fox News Channel pulls longtime host Lou Dobbs off the air.  No word on whether he will ever return or not.  (We think he will go to Newsmax or OAN).  One of the reasons for his ‘dismissal,’ Smartmatic- the ALLEGED election-stealing software created in Venezuela to enable Hugo Chavez to steal elections has hammered Fox News and three hosts- Dobbs, Maria Bartiromo, and Judge Jeannine Pirro with a $2.7 billion defamation lawsuit.  Also included in the lawsuit are Rudy Giuliani, Mike Lindell, and Michelle Malkin.  Oh, wah, wah, wah, Smartmatic, YOU know what you did, you devious scumbags.  Next, in the New York House race, Claudia Tenney, Republican, finally overcame Congressman Anthony Brindisi and won her old seat back.  Congratulations.
  71. 2021 Friday J: Communist China demands the World Health Organization investigate the United States as the creator of the Chinese Virus, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, aka COVID-19, etc.  Wow.  The Chi-Coms will do anything to ward off blame for what they’ve done and with Joe Biden in the White House, they could get away with it.  Meanwhile, Cowboys for Trump leader is out of jail on bond, awaiting trial for the January 6, 2021 Antifa-led mob that stormed Capitol Hill.  Elsewhere, Joe Biden says he won’t restore the Bar Association’s role in vetting judges.  Not good.
  72. 2021 Friday K: Here are the numbers for the Mega Millions Draw #1631 with a jackpot of $54 million on the line: 14, 17, 28, 29, 44, and Mega 02.  Out of 67,548 winning tickets, the highest winners in California were three people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $6,017 apiece. Elsewhere, heavyweight boxing champion Leon Spinks died in Henderson, Nevada, at age 67 on this date.  Cause of death: advanced prostate cancer.  Spinks did what many people thought was impossible but after just eight pro bouts, Leon beat Muhammad Ali to win the title in 1978.  Later in the year, he would lose it back to Ali in what many people believed was a ‘set-up’ for Ali to win the heavyweight title three times.  Our opinion: NOT SURE.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Following their breakup after the “Making Contact” tour, vocalist Phil Mogg set about forming a new band with some new musicians but when he sought to get a record contract, they signed his endeavor as ‘UFO’ and thus we have UFO Mk. II.  The new band featured Mogg, Tommy McClendon (lead guitar), Paul Raymond (guitars/keyboards/vocals), Paul Gray (bass), and Jim Simpson (drums).  The record label, Chrysalis put a veteran producer onto the project and the album came out hot to trot.  This is a superb reconfiguration of the band and we can tell you that it’s worth every penny.  We hope you will rush out and give it a good listen as once you do, you will become as enamored of it as we are- please, check it out and enjoy.  You will be glad you did.

[i] Not sure when we will get around to doing the music of Three Dog Night but if we ever return to promoting the music of famed rock bands from the 1960s and the 1970s, we sure as heck will include this stellar band, one that is still performing to this day.  We saw them in 2019 and all we can say is “Wow.”

[ii] The Atlanta Rhythm Section is another awesome American band, one we sure as heck hope to promote when and if we return to doing music again.

[iii] Not sure when Guns ‘n’ Roses is coming but we hope we will still be alive and will get around to sharing them with the world.

  66. 2019 Tuesday: The New York Times publishes a story in which, the author claims that ‘top officials in the Trump administration begged and pleaded with the president to release the military aid he froze for the Ukraine over wanting information on the corrupt business dealings of the Biden Cartel in that corrupt country.’  A year later, we would learn how corrupt and crooked the Bidens are.
  67. 2020 Thursday: U.S. Intel reports that the Chi-Coms- NOT the Russians- were paying Islamist militants in Afghanistan to murder U.S. military personnel in that s-hole country.  When it was reported the Russians were paying Islamist militants in Afghanistan to do the same thing, Democrats wanted President Donald J. Trump to go to war with the Russians whereas now…crickets.  Elsewhere, a federal appeals court upholds the conviction of a Chi-Com think tank individual who has business ties to the so-called, ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden’s son, Hunter.
  68. 2020 Thursday A: Speaking of the Chi-Coms, they are outraged that President Trump sent U.S. warships through the Straits of Taiwan.  F**k them.  Also regarding the Chinese communists, leaked hacked documents show that Beijing was doing everything to deflect responsibility for the global Xi Jinping Bat Flu pandemic onto someone or some other nation rather than on themselves where 100-percent of the blame belongs.  What a bunch of scumbags.   Elsewhere, Vladimir Putin is having a challenging time to find customers for Russia’s ‘Sputnik’ COVID-19 vaccine.  Everyone knows whatever ‘vaccine’ the Russians have produced is CRAP.
  69. 2020 Thursday B: The father of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is requesting French citizenship ahead of Brexit which is official at 12:01 A.M. tonight.  Elsewhere, many IT security officials and techs believe the Chi-Com hack of SolarWinds occurred much earlier than believed- so says, U.S. Senator Mark Warner of Virginia.  Moving on, ever the pessimist, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, says he’s doubtful that Senator Josh Hawley’s challenges to the certification of the 2020 Presidential Election vote is going to be successful. 
  70. 2020 Thursday C: Jobless claims in the U.S. drop the second week in a row what with 787,000 new claims.  Elsewhere, serial killer Samuel Little dies in the joint at age 80.  The man is credited with the killings of 93 women from 1970 to 2005.   Meanwhile, the Georgia GOP has recruited 8,000 poll watchers who plan to observe every facet of the elections next week.  We shall see if they will be bullied again.  Finally, a tornado touched down briefly in Corsicana, Texas, destroying several homes.
  71. 2020 Thursday D: Here are the latest stats for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, straight out of the fetid bowels of the world’s lone communist semi-superpower: 83,338,512 confirmed cases, UP by 827,952 cases, 1,815,864 confirmed deaths, UP by 15,464 deaths, and 46,993,335 confirmed recoveries, UP by 353,269 recoveries from yesterday’s figures.  Here are the numbers for the United States (SAME AS YESTERDAY’S): 19,910,674 confirmed cases, UP by 197,630 new cases, 344,877 confirmed deaths, UP by 3,693 new deaths, and 8,757,150 confirmed recoveries, UP by 94,066 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt POSs).  Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 416,584 confirmed cases, 3,307 confirmed deaths, and 372,284 confirmed recoveries.
  72. 2020 Thursday E: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 2,282,219 confirmed cases, 25,449 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 21,397 confirmed cases, 288 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION OF confirmed recoveries anymore- what is up with YOU, Gov. Ige, you Democrat hack.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 247,575 confirmed cases, 3,486 confirmed deaths, but like California, the gorilla-faced governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, Alabama: 361,226 confirmed number of cases, 4,827 confirmed deaths, and sadly, no mention of the confirmed number of recoveries- thank you.
  73. 2020 Thursday F:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,606.48, UP 196.92 points (+0.65%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,888.28, UP 18.28 points (+0.14%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,756.07, UP 24.03 points (+0.64%).  The price of GOLD is $1,895.10 per troy oz., -3.50 (-0.18%) while the price of SILVER is $26.41 per troy ounce, -0.413 (-1.54%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,079.20 per troy oz, -3.00 (-0.28%) while the price of COPPER is $3.52 per pound, -0.0255 (-0.72%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,453.80 per troy oz, +75.40 (+3.17%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $48.52 per barrel, +0.22 (+0.46%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.53 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.88.  In other economic news, the IMF says that should be used to determine an individual’s credit scores…WTF?  Meanwhile, tomorrow, 20 states will be raising their minimum wage.
  74. 2020 Thursday G: Here it is, New Year’s Eve and no one knows what the scoundrels in Beijing or their patsies in the Democratic Party are up to today which is why we encourage everyone to stick around and discover their crimes and misdeeds with us…curious?  We sure the heck are…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next solo album by vocalist Peter Wolf- “Fool’s Parade,” came out on September 29, 1998 and lo and behold, Jann Wenner- reclusive founder of the magazine “Rolling Stone” labeled it as among the essential recordings of the 1990s.  Wolf brought together another group of talented musicians to help him create a fine rock and roll effort.  Johnny A., Steve Conte, and Cornell Dupree performed guitars as Tony Beard did drums, John Conte, bass, as well as a coterie of others to help round out the sound.  This is a wonderful album; one we encourage everyone to seek out wherever they shop for the absolute best in rock and roll music and give it a good listen.  We think you will add it to your growing collection of nothing but the best in rock music- something we have been promoting since our founding in 2009.

  60. 2016 Friday: The Obama CIA concludes with ‘high confidence’ that Russia interfered in the 2016 Presidential Election to get Donald Trump elected.  Of course, this is little more than bulls**t engineered by CIA Director (and former member of the CPUSA) John Brennan and his boss, President Barack Hussein Obama.   President-elect Donald Trump brushes this bogus report off.

  63. 2019 Monday: Democrats and their Fake News Media allies are rubbing their hands in glee today as today is the BIG REVEAL of the articles of impeachment against President Donald J. Trump.  Oh, they are giddy, confidant of success, believing they can convince the GOP to toss the 45th president onto the dung heap of history… elsewhere, India’s lower house passes a bill forbidding citizenship to Muslims.  Sounds like they are listening to President Trump…oh, wait, he never said that.  No, he just wanted to forbid them entry to the U.S.
  64. 2020 Wednesday:  In the ongoing struggle with the Chi-Coms, Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe and U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo continue pointing out the danger that communist China poses to the United States.  In the same vein, Congressman Andy Biggs, R-AZ, points out that not only is “Pro-China Joe” Biden in bed with the Chi-Coms, so is his family.   Speaking of Arizona, the FBI raids a home in Maricopa County recovering computer hard drives and zip drives that may have been used in the 2020 Presidential Election fraud.  Meanwhile, the Nevada Supreme Court rejects the Trump campaign’s latest challenge to the fraudulent election results certified by the state.
  65. 2020 Wednesday A: Now that many believe “Pro-China Joe” Biden is the ‘president-elect,’ illegal alien caravans are forming in Central America, preparing to head north to storm the U.S.-Mexico border into the U.S.  Vice President Biden has already promised to legalize millions of illegal aliens lurking within the shadows of the country so why wouldn’t millions more seek to flood into the country?   Speaking of mayhem, Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs are battling the streets in Portland, Oregon, in the broad light of day.  No more coming out at night like the vermin they are.  What is happening to the country?  Meanwhile, the Federal Trade Commission and 46 U.S. states join in an anti-trust lawsuit launched against Chi-Com-backed Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, California Democratic Congressman Eric Swalwell, a noted POS, now is upset that people are scrutinizing him for having had an ongoing affair with a Chi-Com intelligence agent, Christine Fang-Feng, blasting the Trump administration for releasing the salacious dirt on this moron.  We would love to see Swalwell end up doing time in a federal prison and to think this imbecile sought the 2020 presidential nomination of his party.  House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA, says, ‘Swalwell is compromised.’  Funny how people like Swalwell who accused President Trump of all kinds of crimes is the criminal himself…
  66. 2020 Wednesday B: Following a big Republican gathering in the Garden State featuring Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, Democrat, forbids the congressman from visiting his state again.  Elsewhere, Newsmax and Greg Kelly surpasses Martha MacCallum’s show on Fox News Channel for the first time.  People want the truth, like what we do here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM and not distorted BS that FNC now seems to spew around the clock.  It’s their loss and Newsmax’ gain.
  67. 2020 Wednesday C: Here are the latest stats for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, straight out of Wuhan, China: 68,498,598 confirmed cases, UP by 518,604 cases, 1,562,886 confirmed deaths, UP by 10,517 deaths, and 44,171,660 confirmed recoveries, UP by 444,548 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 15,405,920 confirmed cases, UP by 200,243 new cases, 291,262 confirmed deaths, UP by 2,679 new deaths, and 7,142,384 confirmed recoveries, UP by 51,590 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt POSs).  Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 350,271 confirmed cases, 2,934 confirmed deaths, and 331,861 confirmed recoveries.
  68. 2020 Wednesday D: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 1,425,432 confirmed cases, 20,243 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 19,056 confirmed cases, 266 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION OF confirmed recoveries anymore- what is up with YOU, Gov. Ige, you Democrat hack.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 194,788 confirmed cases, 3,102 confirmed deaths, but like California, the gorilla-faced governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, Alaska: 38,707 confirmed number of cases, 149 confirmed deaths, and sadly, no mention of the confirmed number of recoveries- thank you.
  69. 2020 Wednesday E: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,068.81, DOWN 105.57 points (-0.35%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,338.95, DOWN 243.82 points (-1.94%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,672.82, DOWN 29.43 points (-0.79%).  The price of GOLD is $1,842.90 per troy oz., +4.40 (+0.24%) while the price of SILVER is $24.05 per troy ounce, +0.25 (+0.48%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,010.00 per troy oz, -8.30 (-0.83%) while the price of COPPER is $3.50 per pound, -0.0145 (-0.41%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,290.60 per troy oz, -37.30 (-1.60%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $45.71 per barrel, +0.19 (+0.42%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.54 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.87.
  70. 2020 Wednesday F: We learn today that Texas is not alone in suing other states where rampant voter fraud occurred.  Joining the Lone Star State are Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, and West Virginia, along with the Trump administration.  If the corruption that occurred in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, North Carolina, and Nevada is allowed to stand, that corruption will infect the rest of the states in the Union which is why this case is going before the U.S. Supreme Court as do all interstate lawsuits.   Meanwhile, the U.S. House of Representatives passes a $740 billion defense bill opposed by President Trump because it fails to address the national security issues Facebook, Twitter, and other social media firms pose to the nation.   Elsewhere, the Trump administration wants to send $600 relief checks to all Americans while Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says the COVID-19 relief bill must drop (1) aid to the states and (2) COVID-19, aka Chi-Com Bat Virus liability measures Democrats want to tack onto it so if someone dines in a restaurant and gets the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, the infected person can sue the business owner.   Finally, the Trump administrations renames two military bases for the U.S. Space Force.  The two bases- Patrick Air Force Base and Cape Canaveral Air Force Station will be renamed- respectively- Patrick Space Force Base and Cape Canaveral Space Force Station.
  71. 2020 Wednesday G: Federal prosecutors in Delaware are investigating Hunter Biden on charges of tax fraud and other monetary and financial crimes which many now believe disqualifies his father, the so-called ‘president-elect’ because not only is he and his son in bed with Beijing, so is everyone else (or so we believe) in the Biden Family and in his inner circle.  The ‘Hunter Biden laptop’ alone should be enough to send son, Hunter, to the federal slammer.
  72. 2020 Wednesday H: Michigan state Representative Cynthia Johnson threatens ALL Trump supporters AND defenders of the U.S. Constitution with violence, calling ‘on soldiers in whatever army the Democrats possess’ (i.e., Antifa and Black Lives Matter human trash) ‘to commit violence on their enemies.’  What is it about these female Democrats that think they can bully and threaten other, law-abiding citizens?  Bring it on there, congresswoman, you might be surprised at what comes YOUR way.
  73. 2020 Wednesday I:  Here are the numbers for tonight’s Super Lotto Drawing #3515 with a $13 million jackpot up for grabs: 05, 08, 13, 20, 39, and Mega 01.  Out of 84,659 winning tickets, two people had FIVE numbers but no Mega for a prize of $15,418 apiece.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #801 with a BIG JACKPOT of $262 million up for grabs: 11, 14, 31, 47, 48, and Power 04.  Out of 83,939 winning tickets, the highest winners were three people who had four numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $31,286 apiece.                                                             
  74. 2020 Wednesday J:  As you know, every day, we await news as to what the Chi-Coms and their allies in Canada, Iran, Russia, and of course, the Democratic Party flunkies that do Beijing’s bidding…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On November 26, 1972, the J. Geils Band released their first live album, “Live Full House.”  This is a red-hot album that saw “Looking for a Love” become a breakthrough hit as the live version is more awesome than the studio one which is why we encourage everyone to search for this album out and give it a good listen.  Yes, we are doing an American band for the first time in several years and are proud that we are doing the J. Geils Band over any other American group.  You will enjoy this album which is why we hope you will seek it out at your favorite site for music and add it to your collection.   We guarantee you’ll be glad you did.
