2021 Friday: JOE BIDEN NEWS- Those of us who sat mouths agape yesterday watching Joe Biden stumble through his first press conference in 65 days were even more shocked today when what everyone knew to be true was proven true by photos. The discombobulated Biden was using a binder full of cheat sheets and crib notes and his list of reporters featured their names and photos of their faces and still he f**ked up calling them by the wrong names.

Trump and that Trump’s ‘people’ (lawyer Michael Cohen) threatened the pitiful thing to be quiet.  This was later disproven, and the actress is paying Trump money she owes him via a lawsuit while Avenatti is going to federal prison.  Finally, a U.S. Army soldier receives the first transplant of a penis and scrotum at John Hopkins University in Maryland.

  77. 2021 Friday: JOE BIDEN NEWS– Those of us who sat mouths agape yesterday watching Joe Biden stumble through his first press conference in 65 days were even more shocked today when what everyone knew to be true was proven true by photos.  The discombobulated Biden was using a binder full of cheat sheets and crib notes and his list of reporters featured their names and photos of their faces and still he f**ked up calling them by the wrong names.  Most Americans are appalled enough already knowing that this fuddled old fool STOLE the 2020 Presidential Election but are even more so now that a majority of Americans realize we have a vegetable in the White House.  WTF is happening to our country.  Next, the White House says that Joe Biden is going to beef up gun control measures by scrawling his chicken scratch on more executive orders.  F**k you, Joe, NO one is taking our guns.
  78. 2021 Friday A: “RACIST! NEWS”/WHAT’S RACIST TODAY– Oakland, California Mayor and crackpot political hack Libby Schaaf backs an income supplement program that will help disadvantaged black folks but won’t help equally disadvantaged white folks living in that corrupt East Bay city.  Wow.  Next, a Minnesota-based dinner theater scraps a presentation of “Cinderella” because the cast was ‘too white.’   Meanwhile, black leaders zero in on Democrat holdouts in the U.S. Senate who do not want to toss the filibuster onto the heap.  Thus, they are going to accuse them of being racists 24/7/365 with the Reverend Al Sharpton at the head of the pack of accusers.[xi]  What a bunch of crap.   Elsewhere, the top editor at the Journal of the American Medical Association, aka JAMA- Howard Bauchner- found himself sidelined over a tweet and podcast he made in which he said: “No physician is racist, so how can there be structural racism in health care?”  Not good, Dr. B., black doctors became angry and out you go.  Get with it man!
  79. 2021 Friday B: LIBERAL STUPIDITY– Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascon- a George Soros appointee- is not going to try 20-year-old murderous thug Jalen Yoakum as an adult.  This means the POS will be back on the streets in five years.  When is L.A. County going to remove this worthless scumbag?  Meanwhile, the state of Oregon is going to go after concealed carry permits via a new direction by creating a patchwork of gun-free zones all over the place making it difficult for gun owners to carry their lawfully-owned firearms and avoid felonies.  Thugs, of course, will still be packing.  No wonder eastern Oregon wants to break off from the lunatics in the western portion.   Elsewhere, Dems in the Peach State are going berserk over Governor Brian Kemp signing the new voting rights bill.  Massachusetts phony Native American Senator Lizzie “Borden” Warren tweeted that ‘the man sitting in Stacey Abrams chair (good one, Lizzie, good one) is taking the state back to JIM CROW!”[xii]  In fact, a state black lawmaker, Park Cannon, was arrested for banging on the governor’s door after the cops told her to stop knocking.  Stupid skank.[xiii]   Finally, the White House says, ‘Joe Biden’ is worried about the Georgia voting rights law.[xiv]
  80. 2021 Friday C: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE– Congressman Burgess Owens, R-UT 4th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden owes border officials a big apology for creating the massive tsunami surge of illegal aliens flooding across our border.’  Meanwhile, as GOP lawmakers visit the overwhelmed southern border, Senator Mike Lee, R-OR, said that across the Rio Grande River, smugglers, gangbangers, and cartel trash were taunting them.[xv]  Elsewhere, the GOP is demanding that the news media be allowed to film along the southern border so the nation can see what the heck is going on down there with illegal aliens as thick as cockroaches in a Tijuana backstreet whore house rushing across it.  Time to do some pest control, folks.  Finally, it would appear that every sitting GOP U.S. senator is down at the border today blasting the inept Joe Biden administration.
  81. 2021 Friday D: JOE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION NEWS– thanks to Joe Biden’s incredibly stupid policies on energy production and usage, the U.S. is back to importing oil, much of which is Russian oil, and our guy has the nerve to call Putin a “Killer.”  WTF?   Meanwhile, former Ohio treasurer and candidate for Senator Rob Portman’s seat when he steps down at the end of his term said that ‘Joe Biden isn’t all there.’  Go figure.  Next, Joe Biden may invite Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping to a virtual climate summit.  Wow.  Amazing, Joe, simply amazing. 
  82. 2021 Friday E: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– USC reaches a settlement of $852 million following it acknowledging that a former campus gynecologist Dr. George Tyndall- charged with five counts of sexual abuse- abused hundreds of female students while employed at the University of Southern California.  The crimes allegedly occurred between 2011 and 2015.  Wow.  Lock him up.  Meanwhile, Senator Bernie Sanders, DS-VT, and rapper Killer Mike are meeting with folks in Bessemer, Alabama, the site of a big battle to unionize.  Liberal icon Amazon is doing battle with its workers seeking to unionize the plant to seek better wages and even better treatment.  Amazon will probably move the plant to Puerto Rico.  Be careful.
  83. 2021 Friday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– Governor Asa Hutchinson, R-AR, signs a bill ending trannys from participating in girls and women’s sports.  Excellent.  As we have repeatedly said, IF trannys are so determined to compete in sports, it’s far easier to create a third category of sports as well as separate locker rooms.  Let them have at it and we suspect that tranny sports would have far more fans than either girls/women’s or boys/men’s sports.  It’s like roller derby, everyone loves watching the women more so than men so how about creating a third category of competitive sports, you know, for the mentally ill- oh, wait, did we just say that?  Sorry.  Elsewhere, Dominion Voting Systems, the ALLEGEDLY CORRUPT ORGANIZATION THAT STEALS ELECTIONS FOR THE HIGHEST BIDDER- is slapping Fox News Channel with a $1.6 billion lawsuit alleging FNC slandered their fine, fine company.  Sounds like deflection to us or at least so says our attorneys.
  84. 2021 Friday G: FOREIGN/OVERSEAS NEWS– Since Kim Jong Un and North Korea have become belligerent again what with Joe Biden talking s**t about them, elements of the 1st Armored Division are deploying to South Korea.  Next, the People’s Republic of China, aka the Chi-Coms, have slapped reciprocal sanctions onto the European Union for having slapped human rights sanctions on them.  Elsewhere, the container ship beached in the Suez Canal threatens to be there for several months blocking passage through the incredibly important waterway.  This, of course, will lead to higher energy prices as well as drive up the cost of goods around the world.  Glenn Beck raised the specter as to whether someone hacked into the controls of the ship and caused it to run aground.  We thought this was possible after two U.S. Navy ships collided with commercial freighters back in 2017.  Two guided-missile destroyers, the USS Fitzgerald and the USS John S. McCain ran into other ships back in June and August of that year for which there was no real explanation.  Could it be the Chi-Coms, the Russians, or some other nefarious unseen actor is able to cause such mishaps?  Sure, seems possible to us…
  85. 2021 Friday H: MEDICAL NEWS– Former Centers for Disease Control- the CDC- Director Robert Redfield says that the ‘COVID-19 bat flu virus did indeed escape from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.’  The question is, was it a purposeful release?  Meanwhile, Dr. Scott Atlas said to Glenn Beck today that ‘science and expertise have become compromised, politicized, and that the demand for social distancing of six-feet or more (or less) is based on pseudo-science.’  God bless you.  Next, the U.S. pulls over 95-percent of its stockpiled PPE gowns over safety issues.  Must be the crap manufactured in communist China.  Moving on, the cities of Boston, Newark, and Norfolk will become mega-vaccination sites on the East Coast.  Elsewhere, Bill Gates says ‘life will probably be back to normal by 2022.’  Bill- STFU.  Finally, the European Union is peeved with its vaccine suppliers as the demand far outpaces the production.  Are you dummies using the Russian Sputnik vaccine?  Serves you right, dimwits.
  86. 2021 Friday I: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– President Donald J. Trump said today that during the Antifa/Black Lives Matter FALSE FLAG OPERATION launched against Capitol Hill on January 06, 2021, lawmakers were in ‘ZERO DANGER.’  We concur, it was set up from the start.   Speaking of President Trump, he will also remain neutral in the Alabama race for the U.S. Senate seat, and, according to Jason Miller, President Trump may visit the southern border soon.  Next, Congressman Byron Donalds, R-FL 19th congressional district, says that ‘Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi thinks she can remove anyone from office.’  Elsewhere, New York’s junior Senator Kirsten “Whitey” Gillibrand defends her call for Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo to resign as being her personal opinion.  (The Lov Gov must have called her up and threatened her).  Meanwhile, Speaker “Mumbles” Pelosi has authorized several House committees to conduct intensive investigations into rooting out the scurrilous scumbags behind the Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021, riots the Democrats set in motion.  She is angry NO Republicans will join her in yet another witch hunt.
  87. 2021 Friday J: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS IV– U.S. Cybercommand says that recent hacks by foreign actors are a ‘clarion call’ to arms.  You go.  Meanwhile, Parler says it informed the FBI of numerous threats made on its site prior to the Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021.  Next, Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, is calling for an end to the lockdown on the cruise ship industry.  Cruise ships must get back to work.  NOW.  Next, “Lonesome Dove” (and other books) author Larry McMurtry is dead at the age of 84.  God bless you, Larry!  Moving on, the Michigan GOP plans to bypass a weakened Governor Gretchen “Bride of Frankenstein” Whitmer, Democratic-Socialist, and fix the voting laws in their state.  Finally, Congressman James Comer, R-KY 1st congressional district, says ‘Congress holding BIG TECH accountable is going to be a challenge.’

  91. 2021 Friday N: STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,072.88, UP 453.40 points (+1.39%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,138.73, UP 161.04 points (+1.24%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,974.54, UP 65.02 points (+1.66%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $60.72 per barrel, -0.25 (-0.21%).  The price of GOLD is $1,731.60 per troy oz., -0.70 (-0.04%) while the price of SILVER is $25.11 per troy ounce, 0.00 (-0.02%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,191.10 per troy oz, +13.20 (+1.12%) while the price of COPPER is $4.08 per pound, +0.01 (+0.28%).[xvii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,677.50 per troy oz, +52.00 (+1.98%).[xviii] The price of RHODIUM is $28,200.00 per troy oz., -900.00 (-3.09%).[xix]    Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.54 Chinese yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.58.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.   In Belize dollars, one greenback equals 2.00.[xx]

  93. 2021 Friday P: NASA/SCIENCE NEWS– NASA reports that the humongous asteroid named Apophis originally thought to maybe impact the Earth sometime in 2068 now won’t come near enough to the Earth to wreak havoc on the planet for at least another century.  This bad boy from the cosmos is the size of the Empire State Building and is slated to pass within 20,000 miles of the Earth on Friday, April 13, 2029.  Astronomers point out that the moon is 238,000 miles away from our planet so this substantial chunk of rock is going to pass by us at an extremely close distance which astronomers are all excited about as it will provide them ample opportunity to get some good photos of it.  Let’s hope another chunk of space debris doesn’t slam into it, deflect it, and send it crashing down on our planet (unless it decides to hit communist China, Russia, or Iran first before creating a massive extinction event the likes of which ended the reign of the dinosaurs).   Italian astronomer Claudio Maccone says the best protection against space-based threats such as asteroids is space-based missiles with which to blow them up when they are a good distance from the planet rather than immediately threatening it.
  94. 2021 Friday Q: LATE NEWS I– Beloved children’s author Beverly Cleary died at the age of 104 today.  Meanwhile, rabid, foaming at the mouth liberals are suing Georgia’s elections officials over the new voting laws someone in the White House calls the ‘new Jim Crow of the 21st century.’  Yikes.  That hurts.  Elsewhere, the FREE nation of Taiwan, aka the Republic of China or Nationalist China, reported today that 20 Chi-Com warplanes penetrated its airspace today which led to rapid scrambling of attack planes and targeted missiles which drove the communist invaders back out to sea.  Light ‘em up, Taiwan, light those SOBs up!   Speaking of the Chi-Coms, them and the Russians are drawing closer together in an effort to intimidate the United States.  What else is new?   Former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger warns that the constant ‘U.S.-China contest risks catastrophic conflict.’ 
  95. 2021 Friday R: LOTTERY NEWS– Stay tuned for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1645 with a jackpot of $137 million on the line.  Get your tickets purchased by 7:45 P.M. tonight.  Here are the results: 04, 25, 37, 46, 67, and Mega 15.  Out of 69,400 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $18,502.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Robbie Robertson’s next solo album came out on March 10, 1998, and is somewhat unique among his growing discography of music.  The famed guitarist of the Band jumped into a celebrated effort in which, he tried to bring the music of the First Peoples of Canada, aka aboriginals, to a wider audience, sort of what Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones did when he presented his ground-breaking effort, “Pipes of Pan at Joujouka,” an album that came out in 1971.  In that effort, Jones presented the whirling music of North African flute players and drummers whereas here, Robertson brings together large numbers of musicians to play his visionary intermingling of native rhythms with modern musical forms.  We hope you will seek this one out, consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure, and then sharing it with others.  We think they will be as appreciative of it as will you.  Enjoy.

[i] We look forward to doing our favorite classical composers one day.  Hopefully within the next 30 years.

[ii] See “The Soviet Juggernaut” by Earl F. Ziemke and the Editors of Time-Life Books (1980).

[iii] We look forward to promoting the music of Aerosmith one day.  We hope within the next 8-10 years.  Remain vigilant.

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

[v] Not sure when we will begin promoting the music of Boston but when we do, we will alert the readership.  Stay tuned for further developments.

[vi] Our main reference for the epic battle at Dien Bien Phu is “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, 2004, Da Capo Press.  Please seek this amazing historical work out for a concise look at the battle that ended French control of French Indochina and the birth of Vietnam.

[vii] We hope to offer the music of Dire Straits sometime in 2021-2022.  Please stay tuned.

[viii] 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.”

[ix] We promoted the music of Genesis and its members beginning on Tuesday, 02-April-2019 through Sunday, 15-September-2019.  This included not only the parent group but also Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett, Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford, Mike + the Mechanics, and Phil Collins.  Please, look for them.

[x] We shared the music of the Stones beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members’ solo projects.  We sure as heck hope you check out the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Keith Richard, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, and Mick Taylor.  Ronnie Wood you can find during the presentation of the Faces.

[xi] The Reverend Al never misses out on an opportunity to label people RACISTS.

[xii] She should KNOW about Jim Crow.  Democrats were- and still are, for that matter- the party of Jim Crow as well as the party of separate but equal, the KKK, slavery, race hatred, segregation, red-lining, white flight, burning crosses, police dogs, fire hoses, beatings, plantation prisons, and the Civil War.  Dems love braying about “JIM CROW, JIM CROW” as it is the new watchword of the day, everything anyone opposing them does is taking us back to “Jim Crow.”  Lizzie- STFU you lying, phony, hypocritical, crazy f**king bitch!  Enough is enough!

[xiii] This moronic little chub probably thinks, “Boy, I sure showed them!”  We’re sure she believes Governor Kemp is also a racist bigot.  Enough already.

[xiv] Why?  Can’t Joe just undo everything with yet another executive order and can’t the Democrats coerce RINO Governor Brian Kemp into signing another consent decree in 2022 that will permit overweight Stacey Abrams to steal the elections as she did in 2020?  What the hell is the big deal?

[xv] This is why we suggest seeding the Rio Grande with alligator pups from Florida, Mississippi, and Alabama as well as laying in minefields, antipersonnel, antivehicle, and antiboat impediments, putting down spikes on our side of the river IN the river at the border line, putting in military emplacements, troops, razor wire augmenting the wall, and completing the wall.  Hell, put in foo gas pits and whatever else we need to stop the invasion.  BUILD THE WALL AND DEPORT THEM ALL!

  61. 2011 Monday: The Egyptian people vow to continue protesting the government until the Hosni Mubarak regime crumbles.
  62. 2012 Tuesday: Following deadly protests in Tibet, China tightens control of the nation’s monasteries.  The communist Chinese government also says that any claims of some of its ‘workers’ being rescued in Sudan are bogus and they want them back.  Elsewhere, an Afghan husband and mother-in-law kill the man’s wife and the mother-in-law’s daughter-in-law for having given birth to the husband’s third daughter in a row.  Wonderful religion, folks, wonderful religion.
  63. 2013 Thursday: NASA reveals the Regolith Advanced Surface Systems Operations Robot (RASSOR), a lunar mining robot that astronauts could one day use to produce fuel and water directly on the Moon.  Meanwhile, we learn that a teen who performed at President Barack Obama’s second inauguration event died in random gun violence in Chicago.  Fifteen-year-old Hadiya Pendleton was gunned down in yet another unsolved homicide in the Windy City.

  68. 2017 Tuesday A: Elsewhere, the U.S. Senate confirms Elaine Chao as the 18th U.S. Secretary of Transportation.  She, of course, is the daughter of a Chinese shipping tycoon and the wife of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.  Looks like “Cocaine Mitch” has a spy close to the 45th president.  As she assumes office, her predecessor- the 17.1st Acting U.S. Transportation Secretary Michael Huerta leaves office.  Huerta first began serving as the acting secretary on January 20, 2017, while Secretary Chao would serve from today until January 11, 2021.
  69. 2018 Wednesday: The district attorney of San Francisco, George Gascón says that the city by the bay is going to retroactively apply its new laws regarding the now legal use of marijuana to 5,000 old convictions which is the correct thing to do.  Far too many people in the 1960s like Dino Valenti and David Freiberg of Quicksilver Messenger Service[xiii] served time for unfair convictions.  Usually, we don’t agree with most of what comes out of Frisco but this time, yes, yes, we do.
  70. 2019 Thursday: The European Parliament votes to recognize Juan Guaidó as the legitimate ruler in Caracas which leads the Maduro regime to begin arresting foreign journalists from Spain, France, and neighboring Columbia.  The Venezuelan secret police are going out and rounding up everyone they deem to be a threat.
  71. 2020 Friday: Today is the day- or so millions of Americans hope- that the impeachment farce of President Donald J. Trump will move to a vote for acquittal or if the Democrats are lucky to get what they seek- witnesses will occur.  Let us hope for the former and not the latter.  By mid-day, the Senate voted 51-49 against calling witnesses, deflating the sputtering Democratic Party balloon.  Two Republicans- Susan Collins of Maine and Mitt Romney of Utah voted with the Democrats.  Meanwhile, the first Democrat to enter the race for the 2020 Democratic Party’s presidential nomination- former Maryland Congressman John Delaney and seemingly decent guy became the 16th Democrat to bail from the race.  He entered the race- get this- on July 28, 2017.  Oh, well.  Elsewhere, the Kung Flu continues spreading across the globe.  Italy reports its first couple of cases and prohibits cruise ships from offloading thousands of passengers.  Democrats in the U.S. tell everyone to go to “Chinatown,” to ‘go hug Chinese people.’  That advice would devastate Italy and other WOKE Western nations.  
  72. 2021 Sunday: DAY TWELVE OF THE BIDEN REGIME: the Biden White House says that IT’S going to investigate the GameStop matter.  Uh, excuse us, Joe, isn’t that the job of the Treasury or Justice Departments?   Meanwhile, California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom now is coming under verbal assault from Democrats besides Republicans as the numbers demanding his recall continue increasing by the day.  This loser- Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s nephew- is going to lose his seat.   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump and the GOP have raised $255.4 million in the two months since Election Day 2020.  Elsewhere, 39.6 million Americans underwent FBI background checks for gun purchases.  Heck,  some of the chef-bloggers here bought guns last year, there is NO way we wouldn’t, especially when you consider all the left-wing Marxist violence in the streets.
  73. 2021 Sunday A:  Officer Brian Sicknick- the Capitol Hill police officer slain by Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs during the storming of Capitol Hill on January 6 will lie in state in the Rotunda in the building where he served later this week.  Elsewhere, we learn- no big surprise- that 98-percent of Twitter employees donated to Democrats.  Go figure.  Meanwhile, Claudia Tenney’s lead in her New York Congressional race is now becoming insurmountable and we expect a judge early this upcoming week to announce her the ‘winner.’  Next, President Donald J. Trump once again has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.   Finally, the Arizona state senate is hiring its own investigators to delve into the rampant election fraud that occurred in that state.        
  74. 2021 Sunday B: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 102,871,614 confirmed cases, +468,367, 2,225,773, confirmed deaths, +11,160, and 56,981,674 confirmed recoveries, +326,805.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 26,423,597 confirmed cases, up 140,106 from yesterday’s reporting, 446,010 confirmed deaths, UP 2,481, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- same as reported earlier this week.  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 old fool.  NOW.
  75. 2021 Sunday 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: 3,309,463 confirmed cases, 40,697 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,070 confirmed cases, 410 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 315,448 confirmed cases, 4,368 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- the Northern Marianas Islands: currently, they have 131 confirmed cases, 2 confirmed deaths, and 32 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 643,435 confirmed cases, 4,796 confirmed deaths, and 572,511 confirmed recoveries.   
  76. 2021 Sunday D: Warnings are being raised about Chi-Com megacorporation BGI Group, an entity that ostensibly seeks to process data from COVID-19 tests from around the world all for a generous price and plenty of donations where and when necessary to open the doors for them.  In exchange, they collect biodata of U.S. and global citizens which then is shipped back to the Chi-Coms who then store this data for future use.  Anytime the Chi-Coms say they want to ‘help’ a country is when everyone must awaken, take note, and begin working to push back against these totalitarian, fascist-communist thugs.  We must be aware of everything the Chi-Coms seek to do with U.S. biodata as you can be sure they are going to use it against the American people, NOT to help them as they proclaim.
  77. 2021 Sunday E: BIG NFL NEWS- L.A. Rams quarterback Jared Goff has been traded to the Detroit Lions in exchange for Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford.  The Lions will also receive two 1st round and one 3rd round draft pick.  NO PRO BOWL THIS YEAR THANKS TO THE CHI-COMS AND THEIR FLIPPING VIRUS.
  78. 2022 Monday: Stick around for the news of the day…

Sunday, January 31, 2021, Today in History:  

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…


Monday, January 31, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] Just like what the Democrats are attempting to do in 2020 as they try to remove President Donald J. Trump from office and to subordinate the office of the presidency- head of the Executive Branch- to the House speaker in the Legislative Branch.  How well did things work out for Europe in the 1930s-1940s?  Not so good.

[ii] We began offering the music of the Doors on Saturday, 18-February-2012 and concluded them on Monday, 02-April-2012.  We encourage everyone to seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

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

[iv] We presented the music of Roxy Music at the secondary blog and hope to do it at the main blog sometime within the next 3 years. At the secondary blog, we began promoting the music of this famed British band as well as of Bryan Ferry, Andy Mackay, and Phil Manzanera beginning on Wednesday, September 07, 2016 through several successive months.  We hope you will seek them out.

[v] We promoted the music of the great California rock band, Spirit- and the music of its members- beginning on Monday, 18-June-2012 through Friday, 10-August-2012.  We hope you will seek this band out and add it to your growing collection of top-quality rock music. This included the music of Jo Jo Gunne.

[vi] 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.

[vii] We look forward to doing the music of this famed funk-rock band.  The Ohio Players are amazing and what is even more exciting is the fact that the band is still alive today and performing to this day.

[viii] We expect to present the music of the Jackson Five and Michael Jackson sometime in 2025-2026 so please stay tuned for future developments.

[ix] We promoted the music of Buffalo Springfield beginning on Saturday, 17-November-2012 through Saturday, 24-November-2012.  We hope you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your collection.  You will be glad you did.

[x] The music of this famed British band, Family as well as the spin-off group, Streetwalkers, appeared on Tuesday, 08-October-2013 through Thursday, 31-October-2013.

[xi] We presented the music of this British prog-rock band, the amazing King Crimson, beginning on Monday, 20-October-2014 through Sunday, 21-December-2014.  We hope you will check them out and add them to your collection.

[xii] We should have promoted the music of Asia around the time we did King Crimson and/or Family but we failed to do so.  However, we hope to do so sometime within the next 10-15 years.  

[xiii] We presented the music of Quicksilver Messenger Service on two unique occasions.  The first commenced on Friday, 25-March-2011 through Monday, 04-April-2011.  The second cycle with newer albums began on Tuesday, 20-August-2013 through Monday, 02-September-2013.  We hope you will check the albums out by visiting whatever site you do for nothing but the absolute best in rock music.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

23. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, JANUARY 23, 2022

54. 2012 Monday: The European Union imposes more sanctions on Iran’s banking and oil industries over its refusal to stop its nuclear program. Elsewhere, back when nations still had balls, France passed a law making it illegal for its citizens- Muslim citizens we suspect- from denying the Armenian Genocide carried out by the Ottoman Turks during World War I.

  42. 2001 Tuesday: The UN Security Council arrives at a decision on the ongoing civil war in Angola and extends the monitoring of UNITA for another three months.  (Note- there is still money to be made supplying the tools of the trade so let them fight on and on and on).
  43. 2002 Wednesday: Kenneth Lay- CEO of the bankrupt energy company, Enron, resigns.  Promoted by government and politicians, the company was a boondoggle from the start that sucked out the lifesavings of duped investors.
  44. 2003 Thursday: For the first time in the history of the company, McDonald’s restaurant chain reports a quarterly loss of $344 million driving the cost of stock shares down by at least 3-percent.   Meanwhile, Pioneer 10, launched in 1972 to study the gas giant, Jupiter, lost contact with NASA for good as it sails out of the Solar System and into interstellar space.
  45. 2004 Friday: The Chi-Com-engineered bird flu, aka H5N1 that swept into India now has reportedly claimed the life of a Thai man.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, an explosion of unknown origins at the Zhengzhou railway station kills two and injures several others.  The Ministry of State Security is tracking down the dirty rats.
  46. 2005 Sunday: In the NFL’s NFC Championship Game, the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Atlanta Falcons by a final score of 27-10.  Meanwhile, in the AFC Championship Game, the New England Patriots clobber the Pittsburgh Steelers by a final score of 41-27.  The Eagles led by quarterback Donovan McNabb will meet the Patriots led by quarterback Tom Brady.  Who will win?  (Note- the Patriots will win by a final score of 24-21).
  47. 2006 Monday: Steven Harper wins the Canadian election for prime minister, becoming the first Conservative Party in 12 years.   Elsewhere, following two blasts suspected to be sabotage which subsequently led to Moscow cutting off supplies of natural gas to Armenia and Georgia, Azerbaijan steps forward and restarts supplies of the life-saving fuel. 
  48. 2007 Tuesday: After helping crush Islamists in Somalia in general and in Mogadishu in particular, Ethiopian military forces begin withdrawing from the nation’s capital city.  Elsewhere, an exasperated President George W. Bush- smarting from setbacks in Iraq- gives his State of the Union Address and does his best to reel in some members of the opposition by proposing new environmental measures combined with social reforms.  No takers.
  49. 2008 Wednesday: Following Palestinian militants blowing up a portion of Israel’s wall along the Gaza Strip, tens of thousands flee into Egypt fearful of the retribution they are smart enough to know is coming their way.  (Note- why don’t peace-loving Palestinians overthrow these thugs who rob them blind and make their lives miserable).
  50. 2009 Friday: The 16th U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood assumed office on this date.  A Republican, he served under President Barack Hussein Obama from January 23, 2009, to July 02, 2013.  Elsewhere, Empire State Governor David Paterson, Democrat, local politician, Kirsten Gillibrand, to fill Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton’s seat in the U.S. Senate.  Senator Clinton left her seat to serve in the Obama administration as its secretary of state.
  51. 2010 Saturday: After refusing to broadcast government messages, the Venezuelan government shuts down six television channels.  Elsewhere, following a U.S. Justice Department probe that says ’47 of the POWs held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, should be held indefinitely,’ the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) goes berserk.  What a bunch of terrorist-loving losers.   Meanwhile, Vice President Joe Biden arrives in Baghdad to discuss the nation’s upcoming parliamentary elections occurring in March (and also to see what he can earn for his family, under the table, of course).
  52. 2011 Sunday: Pakistan’s President, Asif Ali Zardari, launched an emergency polio immunization program targeting 32 million children under age 5.  Meanwhile, the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council plus Germany find talks with the Iranians over their illicit nuclear weapons program crumbling leading to an impasse.  
  53. 2011 Sunday A: In the NFC Championship Game, the Green Bay Packers beat the Chicago Bears by a final score of 21-14 to advance to Super Bowl XLV.  In the AFC Championship Game, the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the New York Jets 24-19 to advance.  In the Super Bowl on February 06, 2011, at the Dallas Cowboys Stadium, the Packers beat the Steelers by a final score of 31-25.
  54. 2012 Monday: The European Union imposes more sanctions on Iran’s banking and oil industries over its refusal to stop its nuclear program.  Elsewhere, back when nations still had balls, France passed a law making it illegal for its citizens- Muslim citizens we suspect– from denying the Armenian Genocide carried out by the Ottoman Turks during World War I.  Speaking of Islamic violence, Syrian government security forces go on punitive operations against ISIS thugs attempting to overthrow the government of Bashar al-Assad and kill at least 22 people suspected of being jihadists.  Of course, the world press screams they’re ‘civilians!’  
  55. 2013 Wednesday: Davos, Switzerland hosts its 2013 World Economic Forum.  Elsewhere, in Nigeria- the so-called ‘religion of peace’- Islam, in the form of Boko Haram, carries out some atrocities in the town of Maiduguri where adherents hack five people believed to be Christians to death with machetes.  Crucify these Islamists… Meanwhile, the U.S. military overturns its ban on women serving in combat.  That’s a win for women’s rights (yeah, right).
  56. 2014 Thursday: Celebrity and pop singer Justin Bieber[v] makes headlines when police arrest the punk for drunken driving, street racing, and resisting arrest.  Elsewhere, the murder of popular sex club owner and icon, Millie Marković, on the streets of Stockholm, Sweden sparks outrage and fear.  No one knows why the seller of sex in a country built upon the sex trade would become a murder victim.
  57. 2015 Friday: After spending three weeks in the hospital for pneumonia, 90-year-old Saudi monarch, King Abdulla bin Abdulaziz loses his fight with the disease and dies.  Elsewhere, the Doomsday Clock jumps forward by two minutes leaving it but three short minutes before midnight, when everything will sputter to an end, thanks in part to nuclear proliferation around the world as well as the perils posed to the planet by Climate Change.
  58. 2016 Saturday: Following an outbreak of zika virus in Brazil, the governments of Jamaica, El Salvador, Colombia, and Ecuador advise women to delay pregnancies for two years.  Meanwhile, the migrant crisis continues worsening in Europe.  At least 200 ‘migrants’ from the Middle East and Africa attempt to storm the Calais Chunnel area so they can cross into Britain.  The French are able to foil the attempt but it’s easy to understand WHY the British people want Brexit.  The Continent is out of control.  Elsewhere, New York former mayor and billionaire is considering launching an independent presidential bid for 2016.
  59. 2017 Monday: Tornados and thunderstorms across Mississippi and Georgia leave 18 people dead.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump signs two notable executive orders today: the first to pull the U.S. out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, aka the TPP, a crown jewel of the Obama administration and the second a reinstatement of the Mexico City Policy which prohibits the use of U.S. foreign aid to organizations that promote or conduct abortions.  Excellent.
  60. 2018 Tuesday: In Saudi Arabia in the King Abdulaziz Camel Beauty Contest, 12 camels undergo disqualification after their owners ‘confessed’ to having used Botox on the lips of their animals.  Did the owners lose their heads, too?  No one knows.  Meanwhile, the ‘religion of peace’- Islam- strikes yet again, this time in Benghazi, Libya, as a double car bomb goes off in a busy district blowing 33 people to meet Mohammad and wounds dozens and dozens of other unsuspecting souls.  Will they ever stop?  Elsewhere, the U.S. Senate confirms Jerome Powell to be the next chair of the Federal Reserve by a vote of 84-13.
  61. 2019 Wednesday: Citing the shutdown of the federal government, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi disinvites President Donald J. Trump from giving his SOTU address.  He did it about one month later after the government reopened for business.  Meanwhile, furloughed federal workers swamp the Senate building to protest the ongoing federal government shutdown.  Who let them in?  Where was security? 
  62. 2019 Wednesday A: Elsewhere, the criminal government of Venezuela accuses the Trump administration of ‘engineering a coup’ against the ‘kind, gentle, and loving’ administration of thug President Nicolas Maduro.  Simultaneously, opposition leader Juan Guaidó takes the oath of office as Venezuela’s next president because he did WIN the election until he ‘didn’t.’  The fact that the U.S., Canada, and other Western nations recognize him as the president doesn’t mean s**t as long as the Chi-Coms, the Russians, the Cubans, and the Iranians continue their support of the Maduro regime.
  63. 2020 Thursday: Fighting continues in Syria as rebels attempt to storm rebel positions in Idlib Province.  Russian and Syrian troops throw the rebels back, killing at least 50 Islamists dead and another 90 wounded while the Syrian government forces lost about half that number.   Meanwhile, in Wuhan, China, nearly 850 cases of the coronavirus with at least 25 fatalities are counted.  Singapore declares its first case of the COVID-19.  The virus is spreading.
  64. 2021 Saturday: As ‘President’ Joe Biden continues signing executive orders favorable to not only the American left but to the Chi-Coms, Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio decries the implementation of the far-left agenda and the loss of what will be more than 1 million jobs in the first week of the ‘Biden regime.’  You should have stood for President Trump, Little Marco, but you were missing in action.  You and your ‘hand size.’  Next, we learn that 150 National Guard troops in D.C. ‘to protect the illicit administration from the American people’ are COVID-19 positive.  Thank you, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi for sending them to sleep in a parking structure.  YOU MUST BE IMPEACHED.  Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader Charles “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says the impeachment trial for ‘ex-President’ Donald J. Trump will commence on February 8 even though Chief Justice John Roberts says he won’t preside over it (at least until Antifa mobs show up outside his home and ‘persuade him’ otherwise).
  65. 2021 Saturday A: The National Republican Congressional Committee has thrown the 10 House members who voted to impeach President Donald J. Trump to the wolves saying they will NOT intervene in Republican primaries in 2022.  Justice is heading your way, you worthless scumbags.  Meanwhile, for some inexplicable reason, ‘President’ Joe Biden trashes President Trump’s executive order slashing drug prices for the American people.  WTF did you do something like this you decrepit old POS.  What the hell is wrong with that?  Elsewhere, Doug Schoen, now with Newsmax TV, says, “More legislation and less executive orders,” ‘President’ Biden.   Finally, in Moscow, Russian police arrest 2,1000 people demanding the immediate release of Alexei Navalny, opposition leader towards thug Vladimir Putin.
  66. 2021 Saturday B: The ACLU is demanding that all states add an “X” to their official documents when it comes to listing one’s sex.  What a load of crap, there are TWO biological sexes, period.  For people that claim to listen to science it’s shocking that they pick and choose what ‘science’ with which to listen.  Stupid.  Elsewhere, the NFL- thumping its chest with pride- is going to give 7,500 Super Bowl LV tickets to vaccinated healthcare workers.  How noble of you.  Meanwhile, also in a moment of chest-thumping, Twitter says that following Inauguration violence across the country, it’s suspending the accounts of Antifa.  Wow.  Really big of you!  Finally, in South Dakota, unemployment has fallen to 3-percent or lower thanks to the state’s decision to keep everything up-and-running.  In places such as New York that closed everything down, the ignoramus Governor Andrew Cuomo is demanding ‘President’ Joe Biden give him $15 billion in bailout funds.  We hope YOU go down, you homicidal POS.
  67. 2021 Saturday C: COVID-19 Daily Update:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 98,288,147 confirmed cases, +541,350, 2,109,758, confirmed deaths, +12,495, and 54,255,414 confirmed recoveries, +358,448.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 25,109,272 confirmed cases, up 247,884 from yesterday’s reporting, 419,058 confirmed deaths, UP 5,799, and 10,974,161 confirmed recoveries, UP 128,723.  We learn that famed TV personality Larry King died at age 87 due to COVID-19. 
  68. 2021 Saturday D: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,140,928 confirmed cases, 36,326 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases (again, Hawaii is no longer reporting their case numbers in more than a week), 332 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 302,546 confirmed cases, 4,178 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Alaska: currently, they have 52,901 confirmed cases, 254 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 593,578 confirmed cases, 4,326 confirmed deaths, and 512,469 confirmed recoveries.   
  69. 2021 Saturday E: Stay tuned for tonight’s Super Lotto Draw #3528 with a jackpot of $14 million up for grabs and for the Powerball Drawing #814 with a $20 million pot on the line.  First up, we have the Super Lotto numbers- 15, 25, 37, 43, 45, and Mega 12.  Out of 143,211 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO MEGA for a prize of $24,588.  One winning ticket was sold at the Safeway in Newark, CA, 94560 while the other was sold at the 7/11 at Los Gatos, CA, 95030.  Here are the numbers for the Powerball- 05, 08, 17, 27, 28, and Powerball 14.  Powerball for a prize of $33,827 apiece.  Six of the winning tickets were sold in (1) San Francisco Mart I, San Francisco, CA 94116; (2) Shell, Baker, CA 92309; (3) ARCO AM/PM in Bellflower, CA, 90706; (4) Desert Smoke Shop, Desert Hot Springs, CA, 92240; (5) 7-11, San Diego, CA, 92123; (6) Zoo Liquor and Gas, Fresno, CA, 93728.
  70. 2021 Saturday F: Democrats are seeking to rein in expectations over their upcoming ‘immigration bill.’  What?  We thought the 30-50 million illegals infesting our country are getting immediate citizenship and everything that goes with it.  Meanwhile, Dems are also saying that making federal election standards a top priority- what, NO MAIL IN BALLOTS?  Speaking of Democrats, the Chi-Coms are singing a different tune now, claiming that ‘no one on their end was seeking meetings with ‘President’ Joe Biden or members of his administration.  Of course, they were and still are- everyone knows it.  They are Joe’s masters, so they want immediate payback for having put him in office (or so we allege). Elsewhere, Steve Forbes tells Newsmax that an ‘economic crisis’ is coming soon.  You had better believe it.  
  71. 2022 Sunday: Aloha.  Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

Saturday, January 23, 2021, Today in History:  

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


Sunday, January 23, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We’ve said this off and on for a while now but tell us once again as to WHY the United States should be at odds with Russia?

Personal observation: as a Christian, it sure appears to me that the End Times are on the way what with COVID-19, racial animosity, transgender insanity, abortion, and conflict between the United States and a new ‘Axis’ led by China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, most of Africa, much of Latin America, and even some left-leaning members of the EU. The thing is, we have an opportunity to make things right without going to global conflict, yet it seems that Biblical prophesies are rapidly becoming true. Can’t we slow things down?

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 340

DAY THREE HUNDRED-AND-TWENTY-TWO OF THE BIDEN REGIME

341. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, DECEMBER 07, 2021:

Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day- Never Forget![i]

We’ve said this off and on for a while now but tell us once again as to WHY the United States should be at odds with Russia?

  1. 2021 Tuesday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole: 267,363,678 confirmed cases, +1,236,487, 5,285,978 confirmed deaths, +76,045 and 240,745,765 confirmed recoveries, +988,736.

We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ii]   
  2. 2021 Tuesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 407,486 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 2,841 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths.  Joe has done this in, uh, 321 days.  Congratulations, Joe!  After that, he will be the sole arbiter of death in the United States.     
  3. 2021 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 5,004,332 confirmed cases, 75,211 confirmed deaths, and 4,929,121 confirmed recoveries (since California won’t report recoveries anymore, we are doing it). Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 3,751,247 confirmed cases, 61,789 confirmed deaths, and 3,585,019 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 88,440 confirmed cases, 1,033 confirmed deaths, and 87,747 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 789,386 confirmed cases, 9,523 confirmed deaths, and 331,402 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Oklahoma: they have 675,733 confirmed cases, 11,272 confirmed deaths, and 653,699 confirmed recoveries.[iii]   
  4. 2021 Tuesday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day- Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 1,347,474 confirmed cases, 8,210 confirmed deaths, and 1,333,483 confirmed recoveries (somewhat the same numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the world- Mongolia, 75th country on the list: 383,978 cases of the virus, 2,020 confirmed death and 313,256 confirmed recoveries.[iv]     
  5. 2021 Tuesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,719.43, UP 492.40 points (+1.40%). Next, the NASDAQ: 15,686.92 UP 461.76 points (+3.03%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,686.75, UP 95.08 points (+2.07%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $71.74 per barrel, -0.30 (-0.42%).  The price of GOLD is $1,787.50 per troy oz., +2.80 (+0.16%) while the price of SILVER is $22.51 per troy ounce, -0.01 (-0.06%).  The price of PLATINUM is $952.20 per troy oz, +2.00 (+0.21%) while the price of COPPER is $4.33 per pound, -0.01 (-0.23%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $1,863.00 per troy oz., +10.03 (+0.49%).

  6. 2021 Tuesday E: S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.686 per gallon, $3.288 in Florida, $4.342 in Hawaii, and $3.869 in Washington state.[viii] Let us look at one other portion of the United States: South Dakota: $3.251.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the 63rd LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Taiwan: $3.932 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $29,013,882,350,262 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[x]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Israel the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Mexico with $49,000,000,000 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  7. 2021 Tuesday F: Foreign News-Overseas News I- Today, the People’s Republic of China condemned a recent announcement by the Biden regime of a ‘diplomatic boycott of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics.’    Look, let’s stop trading barbs with Beijing.  Our athletes are going there as should theirs to ours when it’s our turn to host either the Winter or Summer Olympics.  It is what it is.  Next a new report that says that Apple back in 2016 AFTER a $275 billion deal, helped develop China’s tech state as well as helped it build up its economy.
  8. 2021 Tuesday G: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News- In Los Angeles, California, the city has slapped 113 firefighters/paramedics on unpaid leave since they refuse to undergo vaccination for Xi Jinping’s notorious bat flu. Meanwhile, the Big Apple dictator, Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio- the outgoing mayor as of January 01, 2022, has put an order in place that will require every citizen unfortunate enough to live within his jurisdiction to become fully vaccinated- plus the booster- by December 27 or be confined to their homes.  WTF!  We hope incoming Mayor Eric Adams will toss this craziness onto the burn pit.

  14. 2021 Tuesday M: S. Senate News I- Dr. Saule T. Omarova, the communist party hack who grew up in the Soviet Union and whom Joe Biden trotted up to Capitol Hill for quick confirmation to become the next comptroller of U.S. currency pulled her nomination. There was no way this communist POS was ever going to make it through the U.S. Senate, even with all the RINOs at Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer’s disposal. Thank God for small favors, folks.  In other news, in a near party-line vote, the U.S. Senate confirmed another loser today, Tucson, Arizona, Police Chief Chris Magnus, a 61-year-old illegal alien-loving scumbag to become the nation’s next U.S. Customs and Border Protection commissioner.  This left-wing scumbag never saw an illegal alien he did not want to drop to his knees and embrace.
  15. 2021 Tuesday N: Federal and State Court News- A judge tossed the lawsuit lodged against Harvey Weinstein by actress Rose McGowan. Another judge has driven another nail into the coffin of Joe Biden’s COVID-19 vaccine mandates by throwing it out for ALL federal contractors nationwide.
  16. 2021 Tuesday O: Miscellaneous News I- Poor Chris “Fraido” Cuomo just had his publisher yank his upcoming book from publication. Meanwhile, he is braying like the jackal he is, claiming his former employer CNN owes him another $18 million, an amount CNN says it simply won’t pay. Meanwhile, a sword carried by Napoleon Bonaparte during the 1799 coup in France just sold for $2.8 million at auction.
  17. 2021 Tuesday P: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw- Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1718 what with a $122 million jackpot on the line: 01, 07, 40, 43, 68, and Mega 01.  In California, out of 59285 winning tickets, the highest winners were two people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $8,062 apiece.
  18. 2021 Tuesday Q: Observation of the Day- Given the way things are going, the world is going to hell in a handbasket and the time may be coming when we will be forced to learn Mandarin or Russian. What is clear is that vast elements of the federal government on both sides of the aisle are ginning us up for war with Russia. The question is, WHY?  Things became extremely obvious when President Donald J. Trump was in the White House.  No matter how Deep State apparatchiks or distant foreign events sought to force him into entering yet another unnecessary war, he avoided conflict.  Sure, he lit Syria up with cruise missiles early on in his tenure, but we believe that that was the first- and the last- time he listened to his military and intelligence chiefs.  Why is it that Syria bears importance for the U.S.?  We have never had a relationship with them, we have relationships with the nations to the west and south of Syria but never with them.  If anything, we should be friends with the Russians as once the Soviet Union imploded, they were never a threat to us nor we a threat to them.  The deal made with them, however, back in the 1990s was that NATO would not expand to their borders.  Why should it have yet it did.  President Trump asked ‘WHY should American soldiers die for Montenegro?  Why should a tiny country on the periphery of Russia set off a global conflict enveloping the NATO alliance?  Why should we fight for Ukraine?  It makes worse sense than fighting for Vietnam and that was a crazy idea.  Didn’t we learn any lessons from the French in Indochina in the aftermath of World War II or the Russians in Afghanistan?  No, the world was much safer under President Donald J. Trump than it is under befuddled Joe Biden and all the military-industrial-political sycophants surrounding him pushing eternal war.
  19. 2021 Tuesday R: The Wrap-Up-  In closing, the American left and gullible RINOs should not be using Russia as the bogeyman.  Stop.  Enough is enough.  As for China, most of us believe they are the modern-day incarnation of National Socialism just with an Asian bent.  They aggressively seek territorial gains, they imprison unwanted racial and religious minorities, and plan to rule the world.  In essence, they can do what the Nazis could not- simply because of the size of their population.[xi]  Still, should we truly be at odds with them?  President Trump was whipping them into line by harming them economically.  Number 45 wanted them to be a better player on the global stage than they were and had them on the ropes which is why we got COVID-19 in 2019 as well as burning buildings, bloody streets, and increased racial angst.  We know they let the virus loose just as they funded and stirred up the unrest because of us causing them problems in Hong Kong and in Taiwan.  We wouldn’t want them in Mexico, nor do they want us in either of those two places.  It is what it is.   In closing, I will say this: our stupid current crop of leaders is pushing us ever closer to a nation-destroying conflict.  The new Axis of nations aligning against us is impressive and if anyone in Washington, D.C., truly took off the rose-colored glasses, they would see they have us on track for a horrendous defeat.  For us, we think 2022 will be a year in which, we will shift our views regarding both Russia and China and will do our best to correct our mistakes.  No one should want war, not with Russia, not with the Middle Kingdom, not with North Korea, Iran, or anywhere else that is not within our sphere.  Let’s worry about our own borders and not those of far-distant nations that most likely would neglect to come to our aid.  -Chef V. Vicky Mazarotti.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

[xii] Also like the Nazis, one can prosper under the Chinese way of doing business as long as one is willing to play ball with the government when it needs one to ‘play ball.’ The people of China seemingly live far better lives than do many living here in the United States.  They work hard, are industrious, and are as good a people as are we.  Nations do not have to agree but they most certainly should get along.  It is not up to the United States to bemoan ‘human rights’ in other nations when we have our own dismal past with which to contend just as we have now what with political prisoners locked up in the D.C. gulag.  Let us clean up our own house before we worry about our faraway neighbors.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

49. 2020 Monday: IF “Pro-China Joe” Biden actually becomes the next president, he is doing Californians a big favor by announcing our reprobate state Attorney-General Xavier Becerra as his secretary of HUD. Likewise, IF he becomes president, we will also get rid of Kamala Harris (look for Governor Gavin Newsom to appoint himself NEXT U.S. senator from the Golden State).

  49. 2020 Monday: IF “Pro-China Joe” Biden actually becomes the next president, he is doing Californians a big favor by announcing our reprobate state Attorney-General Xavier Becerra as his secretary of HUD. Likewise, IF he becomes president, we will also get rid of Kamala Harris (look for Governor Gavin Newsom to appoint himself NEXT U.S. senator from the Golden State). Elsewhere, U.S. Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr announces he most likely will resign his office early.  Meanwhile, 64 GOP lawmakers urge the U.S. Congress to block certification of the 2020 Presidential Election due to the massive amount of voter fraud that has occurred in the key battleground states.   Finally, with Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett on the Supreme Court, the number of pro-gun lawsuits seeking redress at SCOTUS have spiked.
  50. 2020 Monday A: The Virginia Military Institute reportedly is going to remove Confederate General Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson, one of the best military officers the nation has ever produced all because he fought for his state during the Civil War. The left strikes again. Meanwhile, Rush Limbaugh in his radio program today asked a question of the audience (regarding HOW we are supposed to believe Donald Trump did not win BIG in the election): ‘how many fans of a losing Super Bowl or World Series team turn out an airport to see them?’  The president’s rally in Valdosta, Georgia, on Saturday on behalf of GOP Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler was in the tens of thousands.  The American people KNOW Trump did NOT LOSE this election; no, the Chi-Coms, their stooges in the Democratic Party, the Canucks, the Russians, and the Iranians STOLE the election for “Pro-China Joe” Biden.  Finally, legendary singer/songwriter Bob Dylan has sold his entire catalog of 600-plus songs to Universal Music for reportedly $300 million plus.   
  51. 2020 Monday B: As for the Beijing Bug, here are the numbers for the CHI-VI, you know, COVID-19 Chinese Bat Flu Virus Crisis, the pandemic they started but still try to blame on the U.S.: Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 67,316,936 confirmed cases, +342,309, 1,539,965, confirmed deaths, +5,273, and 43,249,276 confirmed recoveries, +267,761.

Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 185,595 confirmed cases, 3,065 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Rhode Island, currently, they have 65,818 confirmed cases, 1,448 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries which seems to be the way of the world at present.  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife have moved there: 346,797 confirmed cases, 2,924 confirmed deaths, and 330,188 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at another nation: Argentina: they have 1,466,292 confirmed cases of the CHI-VI, 38,888 confirmed deaths and 1,300,681 confirmed recoveries.

  54. 2020 Monday E: Two games on the NFL schedule today: (13) Washington Redskins, 23 (5-7) @ Pittsburgh Steelers, 17 (11-1) Monday 2:00 P.M.

287. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, OCTOBER 14, 2021

32. 1941 Tuesday: The German advance towards Moscow continues. The Germans overrun Kalinin, but the Red Army is stiffening as each time they fall back, they know they might be murdered by the NKVD. It is better to die going forward than falling back. In the Ukraine, the weather is becoming worse what with deluges of rain. Still Italian cavalry units of the CSIR reach the Yanchal River. Italian ground forces are hard-pressed to maintain the pace having to abandoned wheeled vehicles in the mud and push forward on foot.

  35. 1944 Saturday: German Field Marshall Erwin Rommel committed suicide rather than face execution for allegedly conspiring to kill Adolf Hitler.  Although not a direct participant in the plot to assassinate Hitler, he was still ‘implicated,’ and his enemies took great delight in seeing him taken down.  The Fuhrer gave him a choice- two Gestapo agents arrived at his home and invited him to go with them.  He bade his wife farewell.  His choice- take his own life or go on trial, be convicted, hung like a dog, and his family extirpated from the world.  He chose the first option and in so doing was given a massive state funeral attended by his family and the Fuhrer himself.  Meanwhile, the Second British Parachute Brigade liberated Athens, Greece.

  59. 2015 Wednesday: President Barack Hussein Obama announces that he is halting the withdrawal of thousands of U.S. troops from Afghanistan and will instead maintain their numbers in that crap-hole country of the world until the end of his term in January 2017.  Meanwhile, as Iranian-backed Palestinian violence continues across Israel, the government announces that it will deploy thousands of troops and police officers to quell the uprisings.  Violence continues ginning up following Israeli cops shooting a Palestinian punk with a knife who tried to attack officers and then tried to flee.  This event occurred at the Damascus Gate in East Jerusalem, a place the Palestinians claim as theirs.  Nope.  Belongs to Israel.
  60. 2016 Friday:  As candidate Donald J. Trump continues rebuffing his numerous female accusers, Democratic Party nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton quietly begins downgrading her campaign events schedule due to fatigue and poor health; besides, she thinks she has it in the bag.  This belief will be her undoing.  Meanwhile, President Barack Hussein Obama removes restrictions on Cuban cigars and rum. 
  61. 2017 Saturday: The death toll from wildfires burning in Northern California reached 40; they were the deadliest group of simultaneous blazes in the state’s storied history.  Meanwhile, in the peaceful country of Somalia (yeah, right), a truck bombing in the nation’s capital killed more than 500 people in one of the deadliest attacks in years; officials blamed the attack on the Islamist extremist group al-Shabab and said it was meant to target Mogadishu’s international airport, but the bomb detonated in a crowded street after soldiers opened fire.  One must love to the so-called “religion of peace,” of which, Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar is a member.

  63. 2019 Monday: After dealing with initial Kurdish resistance, Turkish troops steamroll across the frontier into Syria thereby to establish a buffer zone between their country and the Syrian civil war.  Various U.S. military and elected officials blast President Trump for having pulled U.S. troops back, prophesying that ‘all hell is going to break loose and that the United States has abandoned its allies.’  None of this proves to be true.  Elsewhere, in the impeachment probe, a blubbering former ambassador to the Ukraine- Marie Yovanovitch- says Fiona Hill, another Obama holdover and Russian expert, said the president’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani who is investigating wrongdoing by Hunter Biden in the Ukraine- is a ‘hand grenade.’  Dems did their best to paint Giuliani as some sort of malignant entity messing up years of U.S. diplomacy in the region but like the rest of their BS, there is nothing to see here.  Wah, wah, wah!
  64. 2020 Wednesday: Much to the frustration of President Donald J. Trump, Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr says the unmasking probe found NO evidence of wrongdoing in the Obama White House.  Later, when asked by Newsmax’ Greg Kelly as to what the future of AG Barr would be in a second term, the president responds ‘NO comment’ but expresses his displeasure.   Moving on, Russia rules out any nuke deal until AFTER the 2020 U.S. elections.  Elsewhere, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo pushes Saudi Arabia to normalize relations with Israel.   Speaking of Secretary Pompeo, he says the U.S. is defending 12 Hong Kongese detained by the Chi-Coms.
  65. 2020 Wednesday A: A judge in Virginia orders more time for voter registration in that state. Regarding the election, a Pennsylvania county reports 29,000 mail-in ballots sent to the wrong people.  Instills loads of confidence in one, doesn’t it?  Elsewhere, we learn today that Hunter Biden introduced his father, then the sitting Vice President Joe Biden to Ukrainian energy officials.  This would set up a massive self-enrichment scheme for the Biden Family.   Meanwhile, Eli Lilly becomes the second pharmaceutical maker to temporarily halt COVID-19 vaccine studies after a test subject develops an unknown illness.   Speaking of the Chi-Vi, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer blasting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s failure to negotiate a successful Wuhan Virus relief bill continues gathering steam as millions of Americans now see that she has NO desire to pass any sort of relief for millions of struggling Americans until AFTER the Election.  Impeach and remove this horrible woman.
  66. 2020 Wednesday B: Tomorrow, dueling town hall ‘debates’ will occur as President Donald J. Trump holds one at the exact same time that his challenger, “Pro-China Joe” Biden holds another.   Moving on, today is the third day of confirmation hearings for nominee Amy Coney Barrett and Sen. Ted Cruz, R-TX, exposes the Dems over their claims of ‘GOP court packing’ by pointing out that it’s NOT court packing, it’s the lawful filling of vacancies.  He points out that should the Democrats win, they will engage in court packing by adding another 4-7 additional justices, thus making the court forever a left-wing ally in whatever’s to come.   Meanwhile, Charlie Cook of the Cook Report says that ‘Pro-China Joe” Biden now has an insuperable lead over President Donald J. Trump of 17-percent and that his challenger now has a 91-percent chance of winning on November 3.  Wow!  It’s all over!  Still, just for the heck of it, we are all going to GO VOTE on Election Day…
  67. 2020 Wednesday C: THE STATE OF ILLINOIS IS NOT GOING TO FILE CHARGES AGAINST KYLE RITTENHOUSE, they young man who went to Kenosha, Wisconsin, to help his friends defend their homes and businesses.  Attacked by a mob of Antifa human filth, he defended himself and killed two of the bums in self-defense.  God bless you, Mr. Rittenhouse, God bless the state of Illinois for doing the right thing.
  68. 2020 Wednesday D: Back to the Chi-Coms and their Wuhan Virus pandemic, here are the latest stats: 38,351,539 confirmed cases, UP by 345,418 cases, 1,089,186 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,311 deaths, and 26,540,006 confirmed recoveries, UP by 185,795 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 7,954,066 confirmed cases, UP by 10,036 new cases, 219,254 confirmed deaths, UP by 178 new deaths, and 5,063,122 confirmed recoveries, UP by 1,363 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: 298,500 confirmed cases, 2,098 confirmed deaths, and 251,711 confirmed recoveries.
  69. 2020 Wednesday 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: 865,211 confirmed cases, 16,717 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 13,736 confirmed cases, 183 confirmed deaths, and 10,883 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 99,486 confirmed cases, 2,311 confirmed deaths, but like California, the palooka-faced governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, Ohio: 173,665 confirmed number of cases, 5,033 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed number of recoveries- thank you, Governor Mike DeWine for concealing the number of recoveries.
  70. 2020 Wednesday F: Here are today’s Stock Market closes, ALL DOWN because of the news that now ties “Pro-China Joe” Biden to the corrupt Ukrainian gas company Burisma through his crackhead son, Hunter: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 28,514.00, DOWN 165.81 points (-0.58%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,768.63, DOWN 95.17 points (-0.80%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,488.67, DOWN 23.26 points (-0.66%).  The price of GOLD is $1,902.10 per troy oz., -5.20 (-0.27%) while the price of SILVER is $24.27 per troy ounce, -0.125 (-0.51%).  The price of PLATINUM is $861.00 per troy oz, -2.40 (-0.28%) while the price of COPPER is $3.05 per pound, -0.0045 (-0.15%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,366.30 per troy oz, +22.00 (+0.94%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.20 per barrel, +0.16 (+0.39%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.71 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 21.32.
  71. 2020 Wednesday G:  As everyone knows, the day is young, we don’t know yet what the Chi-Coms and their stooges in the Democratic Party have done.  Stick around and we will find out together…which is what the New York Post today reported front page, the connection between crackhead Hunter Biden, Burisma, and his daddy, “Pro-China Joe” Biden.  Hunter introduced his father to the number three Ukrainian at Burisma and there’s the story, folks, if this were anyone else, he or she would be driven from the race in shame and sent to prison.[vi]
  72. 2020 Wednesday H: President Donald J. Trump has a MASSIVE RALLY in Des Moines, Iowa, tonight where he broaches the topics of the day, including the growing scandal about “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his dopehead son, Hunter.  Tune in to Newsmax for highlights…Meanwhile, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-SC, pulls in a record $28 million for September in his battle to keep his seat.  Lindsey, has it hands down.  Elsewhere, we are told that in early voting, “Democrats are outvoting their GOP competition.”  Does this surprise anyone?  Honestly?  Dems always flood the early voting facilities as like the bogus fake polls that continue showing “Pro-China Joe” Biden up anywhere from 17 to 35 points, meant to depress the opposition.  Folks, NOTHING is going to depress the GOPPERS, you are going to see turnout the likes of which, you have never seen on Election Day.  The victory is going to dwarf any seen by Ronald Reagan or Richard M. Nixon and we hear from sources around the country that IF the Democrats find 500 ballots in the trunk of a car with Mexico license plates, the GOP will find 750 to 1,000 in a box from a polling station.  Dems, we are going to fight fire with fire.  Watch and see!
  73. 2020 Wednesday I: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Super Lotto drawing #3499 with a prize of $18 million: 04, 13, 25, 34, 46, and Mega 25.  The highest winner was one person who had five numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $31,825.  Next, here are the Powerball #785 draw numbers with a prize of $72 million at stake: 21, 37, 52, 53, 58, and Powerball 05.  The highest winners were 22 people who had four numbers for a prize of $552 apiece.

  80. 2021 Thursday F: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE I- Today is Day No. 203 for ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 110 since her ONLY visit anywhere near the border.  FIRE HER.  Next, here are the numbers as compiled by One America News as far as the illegal alien invasion currently stands- today, the cost of caring for the REPLACEMENTS is $513,343,116.  Next, the cost of caring for the illegal aliens for 2021 is $313,938,083,840.  Third, here is the number of illegals who flowed into the country this year: 3,217,613.  Fourth and final, here is the conservative low estimate of illegal aliens currently living in the United States as we speak: 37,217,612.  Meanwhile, a new GOP bill seeks to immigration powers away from feeble Joe Biden.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  81. 2021 Thursday G: JOE BIDEN REGIME NEWS I- We didn’t know the regime was responsible for this, but the White House says it cannot guarantee that Christmas packages will arrive on time.  Okay.  Next, it appears that the Biden regime has restored Little Andy McCabe’s back pay and retirement after President Donald J. Trump fired the worthless milquetoast for conspiring against him.  Atop that, Joe Biden’s commission looking into packing the U.S. Supreme Court is set to issue a preliminary finding on how the Bidenistas are going to neutralize the nation’s high court by stuffing it with another 7-9 hardcore leftists.
  82. 2021 Thursday H: POLITICAL NEWS I- Twenty-four state treasurers cosigned a letter to the Biden regime saying, “NO” on handing over taxpayers’ saving account information and transactions at $600 or higher.  Good for them.  Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen is taking heavy incoming fire and it’s clear that people across party lines are angry over this incredibly stupid move.  Meanwhile, ‘activists’ (hired illegal alien trash) say they won’t let up on Senator Kyrsten Sinema until she gives in to their demands.  Screw them.  Next, U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, the nonagenarian who runs the House of Representatives with an iron fist is upset that can’t or won’t go through with the $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The first ‘best of’ compilation by Fairport Convention hit record store shelves on August 13, 1972, “The History of Fairport Convention.”  The band was in between albums what with the last one being a poor seller and the record label wanted to make sure they got out one more piece of wax just in case the FP did not return to the studio, thus we have this album.  Friends, if you have yet to introduce the music of this veteran outfit that seems to be able to survive the snakes and ladders of the music business, this is a grand way in which to do it.  Please, seek this one out, give it a good listen, and add it to your growing collection- you will be glad you did.

  57. 2019 Tuesday: An International Tribunal in London announces that communist China has been harvesting the organs of marginalized peoples in prison camps on an industrial scale.  This should be shocking to everyone that this communist POS country would commit crimes against humanity on this scale yet the United Nations and nations around the globe say…nothing.  Crickets.  Free Mainland China NOW!  Meanwhile in Hong Kong, Carrie Lam, leader of the independent former British Crown Colony apologizes for having introduced the Beijing-sponsored ‘extradition bill’ that would send accused criminals to communist Mainland China for trial.  She withdrew it because people demanding freedom forced her to do it, she had no choice.
  58. 2020 Thursday: China’s ‘gift to the world,’ the coronavirus, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, created in Wuhan and dispatched around the world, continues causing problems.  Here are the global stats for today: 8,400,320 confirmed cases, 450,435 confirmed deaths, and 4,109,183 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, here are the stats: 2,230,920 confirmed cases, 120,147 confirmed deaths, and 698,390 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which, the world-famous, anti-communist China American Institute of Culinary Politics- The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 161,099 confirmed cases, 5,290 confirmed deaths, but as has become the norm, ZERO mention of confirmed recoveries.  In Hawaii, here are the stats: 744 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 639 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Democratic-Socialist hellhole of Washington, here are the stats: 27,145 confirmed cases, 1,245 confirmed deaths, and but like California, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these political scumbags, shame.  As for unemployment claims, more than 1.5 million Americans filed for unemployment claims last week.
  59. 2020 Thursday A: Here are the stock market closing numbers for today: the DOW Jones Industrial Average: 26,080.10, DOWN 39.51 points, a 0.15% drop.  The NASDAQ closed at: 9,943.05, UP 32.52 points, an increase of 0.33%.  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,154.34, UP 1.85 points, an increase of 0.59%.
  60. 2021 Friday: Everyone knows the drill…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Jethro Tull returned on April 10, 1982 with their next studio offering, the final theatrical album in a series of them: “The Broadsword and the Beast.”  The band featured  Ian Anderson (vocals, flutes, guitars, keyboards), Martin Barre (guitars), Dave Pegg (bass- Fairport Convention) Gerry Conway (drums and percussion from Fairport Convention), and Peter John Vettese (keyboards, synthesizers, and backing vocals).  Critics gave it fair-to-middling reviews but in the eyes of the fans, it sold better than the two previous efforts.  Many fans like some of us LOVED the music of the earlier Jethro Tull from the first album through “Living in the Past” but Ian Anderson answered to no one- especially to his fans and traveled down whatever road he felt necessary to follow.  Ah, well, that being said, we hope everyone goes out and gives this record a good listen; you may like it and you may not.  Give it a good listen- we think you will enjoy it.

  47. 2018 Tuesday: In Saudi Arabia in the King Abdulaziz Camel Beauty Contest, 12 camels undergo disqualification after their owners ‘confessed’ to having used Botox on the lips of their animals.  Did the owners lose their heads, too?  No one knows.  Meanwhile, the ‘religion of peace’- Islam- strikes yet again, this time in Benghazi, Libya, as a double car bomb goes off in a busy district blowing 33 people to meet Mohammad and wounds dozens and dozens of other unsuspecting souls.  Will they ever stop?  Elsewhere, the U.S. Senate confirms Jerome Powell to be the next chair of the Federal Reserve by a vote of 84-13.
  48. 2019 Wednesday: Citing the shutdown of the federal government, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi disinvites President Donald J. Trump from giving his SOTU address.  He did it about one month later after the government reopened for business.  Meanwhile, furloughed federal workers swamp the Senate building to protest the ongoing federal government shutdown.  Who let them in?  Where was security? 
  49. 2019 Wednesday A: Elsewhere, the criminal government of Venezuela accuses the Trump administration of ‘engineering a coup’ against the ‘kind, gentle, and loving’ administration of thug President Nicolas Maduro.  Simultaneously, opposition leader Juan Guaidó takes the oath of office as Venezuela’s next president because he did WIN the election until he ‘didn’t.’  The fact that the U.S., Canada, and other Western nations recognize him as the president doesn’t mean s**t as long as the Chi-Coms, the Russians, the Cubans, and the Iranians continue their support of the Maduro regime.
  50. 2020 Thursday: Fighting continues in Syria as rebels attempt to storm rebel positions in Idlib Province.  Russian and Syrian troops throw the rebels back, killing at least 50 Islamists dead and another 90 wounded while the Syrian government forces lost about half that number.   Meanwhile, in Wuhan, China, nearly 850 cases of the coronavirus with at least 25 fatalities are counted.  Singapore declares its first case of the COVID-19.  The virus is spreading.
  51. 2021 Saturday: As ‘President’ Joe Biden continues signing executive orders favorable to not only the American left but to the Chi-Coms, Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio decries the implementation of the far-left agenda and the loss of what will be more than 1 million jobs in the first week of the ‘Biden regime.’  You should have stood for President Trump, Little Marco, but you were missing in action.  You and your ‘hand size.’  Next, we learn that 150 National Guard troops in D.C. ‘to protect the illicit administration from the American people’ are COVID-19 positive.  Thank you, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi for sending them to sleep in a parking structure.  YOU MUST BE IMPEACHED.  Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader Charles “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says the impeachment trial for ‘ex-President’ Donald J. Trump will commence on February 8 even though Chief Justice John Roberts says he won’t preside over it (at least until Antifa mobs show up outside his home and ‘persuade him’ otherwise).
  52. 2021 Saturday A: The National Republican Congressional Committee has thrown the 10 House members who voted to impeach President Donald J. Trump to the wolves saying they will NOT intervene in Republican primaries in 2022.  Justice is heading your way, you worthless scumbags.  Meanwhile, for some inexplicable reason, ‘President’ Joe Biden trashes President Trump’s executive order slashing drug prices for the American people.  WTF did you do something like this you decrepit old POS.  What the hell is wrong with that?  Elsewhere, Doug Schoen, now with Newsmax TV, says, “More legislation and less executive orders,” ‘President’ Biden.   Finally, in Moscow, Russian police arrest 2,1000 people demanding the immediate release of Alexei Navalny, opposition leader towards thug Vladimir Putin.
  53. 2021 Saturday B: The ACLU is demanding that all states add an “X” to their official documents when it comes to listing one’s sex.  What a load of crap, there are TWO biological sexes, period.  For people that claim to listen to science it’s shocking that they pick and choose what ‘science’ with which to listen.  Stupid.  Elsewhere, the NFL- thumping its chest with pride- is going to give 7,500 Super Bowl LV tickets to vaccinated healthcare workers.  How noble of you.  Meanwhile, also in a moment of chest-thumping, Twitter says that following Inauguration violence across the country, it’s suspending the accounts of Antifa.  Wow.  Really big of you!  Finally, in South Dakota, unemployment has fallen to 3-percent or lower thanks to the state’s decision to keep everything up-and-running.  In places such as New York that closed everything down, the ignoramus Governor Andrew Cuomo is demanding ‘President’ Joe Biden give him $15 billion in bailout funds.  We hope YOU go down, you homicidal POS.
  54. 2021 Saturday C: COVID-19 Daily Update:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 98,288,147 confirmed cases, +541,350, 2,109,758, confirmed deaths, +12,495, and 54,255,414 confirmed recoveries, +358,448.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 25,109,272 confirmed cases, up 247,884 from yesterday’s reporting, 419,058 confirmed deaths, UP 5,799, and 10,974,161 confirmed recoveries, UP 128,723.  We learn that famed TV personality Larry King died at age 87 due to COVID-19. 
  55. 2021 Saturday D: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,140,928 confirmed cases, 36,326 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases (again, Hawaii is no longer reporting their case numbers in more than a week), 332 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 302,546 confirmed cases, 4,178 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Alaska: currently, they have 52,901 confirmed cases, 254 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 593,578 confirmed cases, 4,326 confirmed deaths, and 512,469 confirmed recoveries.   
  56. 2021 Saturday E: Stay tuned for tonight’s Super Lotto Draw #3528 with a jackpot of $14 million up for grabs and for the Powerball Drawing #814 with a $20 million pot on the line. First up, we have the Super Lotto numbers- 15, 25, 37, 43, 45, and Mega 12.  Out of 143,211 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO MEGA for a prize of $24,588.  One winning ticket was sold at the Safeway in Newark, CA, 94560 while the other was sold at the 7/11 at Los Gatos, CA, 95030.  Here are the numbers for the Powerball- 05, 08, 17, 27, 28, and Powerball 14.  Powerball for a prize of $33,827 apiece.  Six of the winning tickets were sold in (1) San Francisco Mart I, San Francisco, CA 94116; (2) Shell, Baker, CA 92309; (3) ARCO AM/PM in Bellflower, CA, 90706; (4) Desert Smoke Shop, Desert Hot Springs, CA, 92240; (5) 7-11, San Diego, CA, 92123; (6) Zoo Liquor and Gas, Fresno, CA, 93728.
  57. 2021 Saturday F: Democrats are seeking to rein in expectations over their upcoming ‘immigration bill.’  What?  We thought the 30-50 million illegals infesting our country are getting immediate citizenship and everything that goes with it.  Meanwhile, Dems are also saying that making federal election standards a top priority- what, NO MAIL IN BALLOTS?  Speaking of Democrats, the Chi-Coms are singing a different tune now, claiming that ‘no one on their end was seeking meetings with ‘President’ Joe Biden or members of his administration.  Of course they were and still are- everyone knows it.  They are Joe’s masters so they want immediate payback for having put him in office (or so we allege). Elsewhere, Steve Forbes tells Newsmax that an ‘economic crisis’ is coming soon.  You had better believe it.

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

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

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

  48. 2019 Saturday: Today is the 78th anniversary of the Japanese sneak attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, the event that propelled the United States into World War II.

  49. 2020 Monday: IF “Pro-China Joe” Biden actually becomes the next president, he is doing Californians a big favor by announcing our reprobate state Attorney-General Xavier Becerra as his secretary of HUD. Likewise, IF he becomes president, we will also get rid of Kamala Harris (look for Governor Gavin Newsom to appoint himself NEXT U.S. senator from the Golden State).  Elsewhere, U.S. Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr announces he most likely will resign his office early.  Meanwhile, 64 GOP lawmakers urge the U.S. Congress to block certification of the 2020 Presidential Election due to the massive amount of voter fraud that has occurred in the key battleground states.   Finally, with Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett on the Supreme Court, the number of pro-gun lawsuits seeking redress at SCOTUS have spiked.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The J. Geils Band is one of those unique American groups that were an amazing live act but which required time to build up to selling loads of albums.  With remarkable success would come dissension in the ranks but that was for another decade or so away.  Former in Massachusetts in the mid-1960s around the namesake of the band, John “J.” Geils (guitars), Peter Wolf (vocals), Seth Justman (keyboards/vocals), Danny Klein (bass/vocals), Stephen Jo Bladd (drums), and “Magic Dick” (harmonicas/saxophones), the band released its first album, “The J. Geils Band” on November 16, 1970.  The band was a smoking blues-rock band, sort of an American ‘Rolling Stones’ but unique in their own way.  This album opened the door to a national audience and signaled good things to come.  We hope you will investigate this album to your own delight- you will be glad you did.
