  61. 2016 Wednesday: Researchers using GPR imaging determine that the skull of William Shakespeare most likely has been stolen from his tomb at the Holy Trinity Church in Stratford, United Kingdom.   Elsewhere, police in Brussels, Belgium, identify two of the attackers in the recent attacks on a subway station and an airport as a pair of homegrown jihadist brothers.  The search is on for a third man, the reputed ISIS bomber lurking somewhere within the country.  Track him down and KILL him.  Meanwhile, a U.S. airstrike on an al-Qaida camp in the lovely country of Yemen kills dozens of jihadists.

  63. 2018 Friday: President Donald J. Trump released an order banning most transgender troops from serving in the military except under “limited circumstances.”  Meanwhile, the online classified ads site Craigslist removed its personals section; the action came after the U.S. Senate passed an anti-sex-trafficking bill that could hold the website and others responsible for illegal activity.  Elsewhere in Sochi, Russia, in one of the largest transfers of desert sand ever, a sandstorm in the Sahara transforms the snow from white to orange.

  65. 2020 Monday: Due to illness and self-quarantine, the Republican-controlled Senate is not in control with only 48 members present.  The Democrats under Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, at the behest of Speaker Nancy Pelosi will NOT pass a bill designed to protect the country’s economy while providing support to the afflicted unless Republicans sign on to more Obamacare-like government-run medical claptrap as well as all manner of identity politics desires, Green New Deal insanity, increased protections for illegal aliens, and additional Pro-Death protections.  As of the time of this publishing, the GOP was still holding out, hoping the Dems would regain their senses and stop with the insanity but oh, no, they simply won’t surrender their partisan politics.  COVID-19 statistics: earlier in the day, there were 354,677 known cases of the Chinese Virus what with the number of infections up in previous 24 hours standing at 21,115; total known deaths are 15,430, up 940 in 24 hours.  In the United States, total known cases are 35,345 what with 473 deaths, up by 56 in past 24 hours.  This does not account for the stats for the second part of the day.
  66. 2021 Tuesday: YESTERDAY’S NEWS CATCHUP- Dare we say this but the name of the individual who shot up the King Sooper Grocery Store in Boulder, Colorado, goes by the name of Ahmad Al-Aliwi Alissa.  Allah Akbar, anyone?  Meanwhile, Robert Aaron Long, the perp who carried out the Atlanta Massage Parlors Massacre found himself in court charged with ‘malice murder’ and ‘aggravated assault.’  The poor bastard was trying to conquer a sex addiction, something he will be unable to conquer in prison as everyone knows what goes on in there.  Sad.  Elsewhere, in the trial of former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin, after seating 2 alternate jurors yesterday giving the trial a full 12 plus the two, seated a 15th today in case one of the other ones drops or is forced out for some as yet unanticipated reason. 
  67. 2021 Tuesday A: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE I- White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki could not answer a reporter’s question as to WHY illegal alien mobs receive better treatment than do National Guard members protecting Fort Pelosi in Washington, D.C.  National Guard members have had to sleep in frigid parking garages and have been served undercooked, raw, or poor-quality food while illegals are pampered like Roman emperors.  Something is NOT right here.
  68. 2021 Tuesday B: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE II- Regarding the border mess, the Biden administration continues trying to deflect blame for the ongoing disaster onto President Donald J. Trump’s back.  Not working very well seeing as how President Trump handed Joe Biden a secure border.   Regarding the Biden Border Catastrophe, 40-percent in a recent poll blame Joe Biden 100-percent for the border catastrophe while 27-percent (the uneducated) blame President Donald J. Trump.  Another 12-percent blame Congress.  What everyone agrees on is the border must be secured NOW.  Speaking of the CRISIS, “Kooky Kamala” Harris says her administration received a f-up border from the previous administration and when asked if she was going to visit the border anytime soon, laughed it off.[iii] 
  69. 2021 Tuesday C: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE III-  the Republicans are dangling the bait of amnesty for DACA recipients, i.e., the much-beloved DREAMers (yeah, right- deport all of them NOW) in exchange for the Democrats agreeing to fix the broken farmworker visa system.  You know, we used to have the Bracero Program which allowed temporary workers to cross to and from the southern border to work in the United States and then to return home after the season ended.  What is so frigging difficult about this?  Just fix it and stop the tidal wave of illegals rampaging through our country.  Enough already!  Meanwhile, we learn that only 13-percent of family units crossing the southern border are turned back into Mexico.  Wow.
  70. 2021 Tuesday D: LAW ENFORCEMENT/LEGAL NEWS- Attorney Sidney Powell files a motion to dismiss suit in court to have the bogus lawsuit filed by the (allegedly) corrupt Dominion Voting Systems out of Canada.  These scumbags filed a frivolous lawsuit against all those who pointed out the fact that Dominion coupled with Hugo Chavez’s Smartmatic software STOLE the 2020 Presidential Election and threw it to decrepit old Joe Biden.   In other news, Regent University hosted a lengthy symposium on how the election fraud in 2020 occurred what with Michelle Bachman and Peter Navarro providing reams of evidence showing the crime committed before our eyes.  Elsewhere, the Massachusetts attorney general seeks to vacate thousands of drug convictions that were handed out using lab ‘evidence’ with which law enforcement tampered so as to achieve convictions.
  71. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. POLITICAL NEWS-  Congressman Mo Brooks, R-AL 5th congressional district announced today that he is running to fill the seat being vacated by retiring Senator Richard Shelby.  Good luck, Mo!  Meanwhile, Congressman James Comer, R-KY 1st congressional district, blasts the Biden tax plan as being little more than a wealth redistribution scheme.  Elsewhere, by a vote of 68-29, the U.S. Senate confirms the nomination of Boston Mayor Marty Walsh to become the next U.S. Secretary of the Labor Department.  From what we hear, the guy is a labor hack.  In other news, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district says that ‘efforts to expel me will fail.’  Next, Senator Tammy Duckworth, D-IL, says she won’t confirm anymore WHITE nominees sent to the U.S. Senate by the Biden administration until some Asian-Americans begin getting nominated for high posts- like what?  Ambassador to Micronesia?  Finally, Joe Biden says we can ban assault weapons.  Go for it.
  72. 2021 Tuesday F: ECONOMIC AND BUSINESS NEWS I-  Economist Steve Moore pointed out today how the $1,400 stimulus checks sent to, uh, not just American taxpayers but to felons in prison, illegal aliens, and even savvy foreigners could end up costing $11,000 each.  Not good.  Meanwhile, U.S. corporations are urging elected Democrats to push through the DREAMER bill so as to get all this cheap labor employed while American workers are left without.   However, corporations may not get the last laugh as U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen is promising to boost the U.S. corporate tax rate back to where it was- if not higher- than before President Donald J. Trump was in office.  Corporate heads, DON’T you wish you had supported the 45th president when you had the opportunity?   
  73. 2021 Tuesday G: ECONOMIC AND BUSINESS NEWS II- In other PANDERING NEWS, the city of Evanston, Illinois, becomes the first city in the United States to provide reparations to black Americans.  Wait, isn’t Evanston a NORTHERN CITY where slavery did not exist?  WTF is up with that?  (Note- NO longer can Democrats in Evanston use ‘slavery’ as a club to bash the heads of their political enemies.  NEVER).  Elsewhere, Joe Biden’s economic advisers are warning fellow Democrats to prepare for an additional $3 trillion in spending, much of which will go into HIGH-SPEED RAIL?  WTF?  This has never worked in the United States nor will it.  Next, Microsoft is in talks to buy instant messaging app, Discord.   Finally, Regal Cinemas plans a grand reopening across the country beginning on April 02, 2021.
  74. 2021 Tuesday H: FOREIGN AND OVERSEAS NEWS I- Following a complaint, the Federal Communications Commission- the FTC- is looking into allegations that two communist Chinese telecommunications companies, China Central Television and CGTN, for inserting propaganda into its broadcasts as well as showing coerced confessions by prisoners who have been mistreated.   Meanwhile, Russian officials say that Joe Biden has repeatedly rejected any open talks with Moscow so that mutual problems can be addressed, and grievances aired.  That’s Joe for you.  Speaking of Joe Biden, he’s going to address a virtual summit of European leaders this upcoming Thursday just as he is supposed to address the American people via a press conference.  (Note- we expect neither will occur or if they do, they will come off as Max Headroom with multiple takes, Deep Fakes, and hidden earpieces.  What a country).  Moving on, Dems are pressuring Joe Biden to ease sanctions on communist Venezuela.  Elsewhere, Saudi Arabia is proposing a ceasefire with the Houthi rebels.  Finally, Israeli voters are taking another shot at Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. 
  75. 2021 Tuesday I: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 123,924,888 confirmed cases, +408,189, 2,727,640 (down from yesterday’s figure), confirmed deaths, +7,937, and 70,320,511 confirmed recoveries, +344,632.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,104,069 confirmed cases, up 49,466 from yesterday’s reporting, 548,613 confirmed deaths, UP 442, and 117,037,711 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them. 
  76. 2021 Tuesday J: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 220,146 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another three-and-a-half-weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  In other COVID-19 news, the Centers for Disease Control are hammering AstraZeneca for using outdated data in their correlation of vaccine results.  Say it ain’t so.  Meanwhile, a new study suggests that low-dose aspirin can ward off the coronavirus.  Elsewhere, Pfizer is developing a pill with which to ward off the ‘VID.  (In other healthcare news, Governor Asa Hutchinson, R-AK, has signed a new antiabortion law into being, one that will challenge Roe v. Wade in the courts).   (Other News II- the teachers’ unions are pushing back on the CDC’s recommendations for social distancing: six feet or no teach).
  77. 2021 Tuesday K: 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: 3,646,171 confirmed cases, 57,799 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,912 confirmed cases, 454 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 358,762 confirmed cases, 5,232 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- the commonwealth of the Northern Marianas: currently, they have 158 confirmed cases, 2 confirmed deaths, and 32 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 828,764 confirmed cases, 6,109 confirmed deaths, and 807,653 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Philippines, home of Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos (and her legendary shoe collection): 677,653 cases of the virus, 12,992 confirmed deaths and 578,461 confirmed recoveries.

  79. 2021 Tuesday M: Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.882 per gallon, $3.612 in Hawaii, and $3.320 in Washington state.  Time to allow the country to return to fracking, there Joe Biden.   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,085,852,256,420 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.  Cloward and Piven running amok.  The country is going to crumble into nothingness.  IF the Chinese are going to become the masters of the world, well, what can we do except to join the band.
  80. 2021 Tuesday N: UNIDENTIFIED FLYING (AND SUBMERSIBLE) OBJECT NEWS- It would appear that the American people will soon learn the truth about UFOs although whether anyone will go the distance and inform us that the persons operating these crafts are not of this world is unclear.  Louis Elizondo was on Fox News this morning discussing the phenomena that has vexed millions around the world since the Roswell crash in New Mexico shortly after the end of World War II.  Elizondo provides three explanations as to the origins of these craft.  First, that they are BLACK OPERATIONS vehicles that only certain governmental organizations are aware of while the second is that the technology could be that of our enemies.  The third is that they come from somewhere else although no one wants to definitively state they come from somewhere NOT of this Earth such as interdimensional or interplanetary or interstellar origins.  To be a UFO, there must be at least one of five observable characteristics such as (1) the ability to accelerate almost instantaneously (2) hypersonic speeds (3) low observability (4) the ability to operate on various planes such as air to water, water to air, and whatever else observers might see and (5) the ability to move sans any form of wings, engine exhausts, and other characteristics associated with earthly flight.
  81. 2021 Tuesday O: FOREIGN/OVERSEAS NEWS II- North Korea sent a message to Joe Biden today in which, Kim Jong Un- the Great Leader II- fired off a barrage of short-range missiles into the sea this past weekend as a message to the White House that the Democratic Republic of North Korea does not like Joe Biden firing up the U.S.-South Korean military exercises.  Today, the Department of Defense said that ‘North Korea threatens the entire region.’  Wow.  We don’t think Chairman Kim likes Joe Biden very much.  It will be interesting to see what comes of this.  Meanwhile, the Biden administration still won’t say that labeling Vladimir Putin a ‘killer’ was the wrong thing to do.  Elsewhere, China lashes out at U.S. allies in a bid to thwart the agenda of “Joe Biden.”  The People’s Republic of China began slapping reciprocal sanctions onto the European Union for the pressure the ‘Biden administration’ and the EU are slapping onto Beijing for mistreating the citizens of Hong Kong, Tibet, and Uighur Muslims.  China says these are internal issues like mistreatment of minorities in the U.S. is an American internal issue.  Joe- the AICPENDBLOG.COM recommends YOU don’t start something with the PRC you can’t finish or win.
  82. 2021 Tuesday P: Stick around for the results of the Mega Millions Draw #1644 tonight what with a $122 million pot on the line for some lucky winner(s).  Here are the numbers: 12, 23, 35, 38, 55, and Mega 11.  Out of 80,188 winning tickets, the highest winners were three people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $6,340 apiece.
  83. 2021 Tuesday Q: END OF THE NIGHT NEWS FOREIGN/OVERSEAS III- We overlooked this story this morning but in a Rohingya refugee camp in Bangladesh, a massive fire broke out killing 560 people outright, thousands more injured, and causing the disappearances of another 400.  The U.N. says that 45,000 people have been displaced.   The Bangladeshis have given shelter to more than 1 million of their fellow Muslims whom the anti-Muslim government in neighboring Burma drove out back in 2017 via a concerted effort to kill all of them.  Next, even though Saudi Arabia proposed a ceasefire with the Houthi rebel scum in Yemen, the Houthis conducted an attack on Abha International Airport with a drone loaded up with explosives.   Had the ceasefire gone into effect, it would have permitted the reopening of the Sana’a airport in Yemen so that relief supplies could flow into the starving, impoverished civilians in the country.  Instead, we think the Saudis had better raze all Houthi-controlled areas. 
  84. 2021 Tuesday R: END OF THE NIGHT NEWS NATIONAL:  A 14th woman filed a lawsuit against Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson accusing him of exposing himself and performing lewd acts on them.  The quarterback denies all allegations and investigation is ensuing.  Unlike Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, we believe that Watson is facing false accusations and we will wait to see where the evidence takes us.   Elsewhere, the ‘Biden administration’ announces all official documents will bear the moniker ‘Biden-Harris Administration.’  Speaking of old Joe, he says he is going to take America’s guns away since a crazed Syrian refugee POS shot up the Boulder, Colorado, grocery store killing 10 people, all of whom were WHITE.  No one seems to be shedding tears for them but oh, those poor Asian hookers- uh, excuse me, masseuses- in Atlanta, which is an entirely different story.  Meanwhile, Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley, DS-MA 7th congressional district, says ‘making Washington, D.C. a state is a matter of racial equity seeing as how there are loads of black folks living there.’
  85. 2022 Wednesday: You know the drill…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by the Band is an archivist’s release featuring the group live at one of the all-time celebrated great shows following Woodstock.  “Live at Watkins Glen” came out on April 04, 1995, and features the Band’s performance at the famous site.  This concert for those who may not know featured a top bill of not only the Band but also the Grateful Dead and the Allman Brothers Band so folks, it was one long trip to be remembered or lost in the fog.  All three groups were in their peak eras although the Dead and the ABB would continue for decades to come so why not listen to this legendary set?  Both the Band and the Dead appeared at the Woodstock Music and Arts Fair of 1969 whereas the ABB did not.  One can only ponder why.  Ah, well, seek this one out and add it to your collection- you will be extremely glad you did, of that, we are positive.

59. 2021 Wednesday A: The wonderful government of Iran has passed a bill calling for the destruction of Israel by the year 2041 as well as for retribution for the POS Quds Force commander, Gen. Qassim Soleimani, whom the U.S. took out in a drone strike on New Year’s Day in 2020. What better reason to nuke these carpet-making camel jockeys NOW before President Trump leaves office?

  54. 2017 Friday: Turkish strongman Tayyip Recep Erdogan announces that Turkish forces will remain on the island of Cyprus for the rest of time.  They invaded the island during the 1970s and fought to displace the Greeks.  The island has been divided between the two countries ever since.  Speaking of thugs, for the first time the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons blasts Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and members of his regime for using chemical weapons on innocent civilians.
  55. 2018 Saturday: In the NFC Division Round, the Philadelphia Eagles defeat the Atlanta Falcons in a low-scoring affair by a score of 15-10.  In the AFC Division Round, the New England Patriots wipe out the Tennessee Titans with a final score of 35-14.  Meanwhile, thanks to Deep State resistance, a false alarm that warned of a ballistic missile headed for Hawaii sent the islands into a panic, with people abandoning cars on a highway and preparing to flee their homes; officials apologized and said the alert was sent when someone (obviously on purpose) hit the wrong button during a shift change.  So far, the feds have not identified the prick.
  56. 2019 Sunday: In the AFC Division Round, the New England Patriots pound the snot out the Los Angeles Chargers with a final score of 41-28.  In the NFC Division Round, the New Orleans Saints wallop the Philadelphia Eagles by a final score of 20-14, knocking Super Bowl LII champion Eagles out of the running.   Elsewhere, following insane elections in Venezuela in which, many people believe the President of the National Assembly Juan Guaidó won, Caracas police briefly detain him after he said he ‘was prepared to take power.’  This would create an international crisis.
  57. 2020 Monday: The people of Iran continue protesting their illegitimate government by calling for the ouster of the grand ayatollah, someone who should have been droned long ago.  Meanwhile, Sen. Cory “Creepy” Booker, D-NJ, becomes the fifteenth Democrat to leave the running for the 2020 Democratic nomination.  He does this because he has 0-percent support and cannot raise money.  Also, because the man is stranger than f**k and claims NOT to be gay.  Sure, Cory, sure.  Elsewhere, the U.S. expels 21 Royal Saudi Air Force pilots from the country following the shooting in Pensacola, Florida, which took the lives of American service personnel.  The Saudis were found to have jihadist sympathies.  Will we ever learn?
  58. 2021 Wednesday: Although many called for leniency, the feds executed Lisa Montgomery at its Terre Haute prison facility, the first woman executed in 67 years.  Next, the U.S. Supreme Court blocks mail delivery of the abortion drug during the Chi-Com-caused pandemic.  Meanwhile, Acting Attorney-General Rosen warns of violence both in Washington, D.C. on Inauguration Day as well as in all 50 states.  Finally, pot-smoking Mayor Bill Di Blasio of New York City says the city is ‘canceling $17 million in contracts with Donald J. Trump.’  Wow.
  59. 2021 Wednesday A: The wonderful government of Iran has passed a bill calling for the destruction of Israel by the year 2041 as well as for retribution for the POS Quds Force commander, Gen. Qassim Soleimani, whom the U.S. took out in a drone strike on New Year’s Day in 2020.  What better reason to nuke these carpet-making camel jockeys NOW before President Trump leaves office?  Moving on, we learn that ‘fewer than 10 scurrilous Republicans’ support the impeachment of President Donald J. Trump which is occurring now on Capitol Hill in the U.S. House of Representatives.  As the impeachment BS continues, Representative Matt Rosendale, R-Montana, says that Congresswoman Liz Cheney, R-WY, should be ‘stripped of her leadership role,’ something with which, we wholeheartedly agree.  Meanwhile, ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden announces he will select another Obama-Biden alum- Samantha Power- to head USAID.  Next, the U.S. Senate announces confirmation hearings for incoming Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen beginning on January 19, the same day the Democrats want to impeach President Trump a second time.
  60. 2021 Wednesday B: Christopher Ruddy of Newsmax TV says that ‘in a strange way President-elect Joe Biden is listening to his outgoing predecessor President Donald J. Trump in that he is nominating what the country perceives to be moderates to work in his administration and keeping the ultra-left riffraff at arm’s length.’  Interesting point.  Speaking of the 45th president, a recent McLaughlin poll says Trump’s approval ratings have been holding at 49-percent, his highest since the election.  Meanwhile, the U.S. special envoy to South Korea Henry Harris will be leaving his post next week.  Elsewhere, Newt Gingrich says there is ‘enormous danger’ in the ability to dictate whether President Donald J. Trump (or anyone else for that matter) can seek the presidency ever again.’  Nope, times are changing for the worst, folks.  Finally, ever-traitorous “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, the current Senate majority leader, signals he will go along with the second impeachment of President Trump.  What a guy.
  61. 2021 Wednesday C: President Donald J. Trump’s EPA through its push to impose industry-backed regulations is a tactic by which, it can tie the hands of incoming President-elect Joe Biden’s hands when it comes to forcing Green New Deal BS on the American people.  This will allow industry to have a greater say in proceeding with projects than the federal government, which is good, extremely good.  Meanwhile, YouTube has suspended President Donald Trump’s channel on their site.  Censorship run amok yet again, folks.  Elsewhere, at the request of President-elect Joe Biden, Operation Warp Speed’s Dr. Moncef Slaoui has submitted his resignation letter.      
  62. 2021 Wednesday D: Please stick around for tonight’s Super Lotto and Powerball drawings.  First, here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3525 with a jackpot of $11,000,000 up for grabs: 03, 17, 21, 27, 35, and Mega 05.  Out of 151,188 winning tickets, the highest winners were two people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $25,559 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at Riviera Foods in Kelseyville, CA 95451 and Shell in Irvine, CA 92606.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #811 with a jackpot of $550,000,000 at stake: 04, 19, 23, 25, 49, and Powerball 14.   Out of 424,484 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Powerball for a prize of $2,768,497 apiece.  One winning ticket was sold at a Chevron in San Diego, CA 92111 and Paul’s Market in San Jose, CA 95112.
  63. 2021 Wednesday E: President Donald J. Trump has been impeached a second time what with 219 Democrats and 10 Republicans voting for and 197 Republicans voting against (232 for, 197 against).  What a disgrace for our country, a politically-motivated impeachment designed to prevent Donald J. Trump from running ever again for the White House.   One thing we have learned is that there is NOT enough support among Republicans for impeachment so the Senate might waffle on forging ahead with a trial.  The negative repercussions could be tremendous for BOTH sides.  Time for President Trump to release ALL UFO files, all JFK assassination files, and all files on the corruption and crookedness of the entire Biden Family.  Do it NOW, Mr. President, do it NOW before our enemies take advantage of our insane politics and light us up.  
  64. 2021 Wednesday F: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 92,240,036 confirmed cases, +856,492, 1,975,707, confirmed deaths, +18,955, and 50,922,412 confirmed recoveries, +384,517.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 23,009,789 confirmed cases, up 212,059 from yesterday’s reporting, 383,290 confirmed deaths, UP 4,270, and 9,989,455 confirmed recoveries, UP 73,884.
  65. 2021 Wednesday G: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 2,815,933 confirmed cases, 31,105 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases, 312 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 283,363 confirmed cases, 3,869 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Nebraska: currently, they have 177,883 confirmed cases, 1,847 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 510,063 confirmed cases, 3,771 confirmed deaths, and 429,929 confirmed recoveries. 
  66. 2021 Wednesday H:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,060.47, DOWN 8.22 points (-0.026%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,128.95, UP 56.52 points (+0.43%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,809.84, UP 8.65 points (+0.23%).  The price of GOLD is $1,847.40 per troy oz., -7.50 (-0.40%) while the price of SILVER is $25.36 per troy ounce, -0.207 (-0.81%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,105.40 per troy oz, -5.30 (-0.48%) while the price of COPPER is $3.62 per pound, +0.003 (+0.08%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,397.10 per troy oz, +20.90 (+0.88%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.79 per barrel, -0.12 (-0.23%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.83.
  67. 2021 Wednesday I: In other economic news, consumer prices rose by 0.4-percent.  December saw the largest increase in four months.  The U.S. Department of Labor said that excluding core prices- energy costs and food prices- consumer prices rose by 0.1-percent and just 1.6-percent over the past 12 months.  Rising oil and gas prices as well as increases in the cost of food driving the increase.  Meanwhile, the U.S. bans cotton and tomato imports from Xinjiang Province in communist China amid concerns over the appalling human rights abuses and the rampant use of Uighur slave labor.  Human Rights Watch says that 2020 was the WORST year for human rights abuses in that repressive totalitarian country since 1989.  Everyone knows the Chi-Coms harvest organs from their prisoners and then sell them at astronomical prices around the globe.  Horrible. 
  68. 2021 Wednesday J: Elsewhere, the CEO of Parler says the social app may not return after being de-platformed by a cabal of BIG TECH social media and shadow authoritarians working from behind the scenes to squelch FREE SPEECH.  Finally, President Donald J. Trump gave a five-minute address from the Oval Office imploring Americans NOT to engage in violence even though rumors abound about what’s to come NEXT WEEK.  A poll conducted today says that a majority of Americans expect more violence to follow on the heels of the violence the nation witnessed last week.  Can anyone say, “CHI-COMS are behind this?” They are mad about criticism about Hong Kong as well as their use of slave labor, also U.S. reaching out to Taiwan, the REAL CHINA.
  69. 2021 Wednesday K: As everyone now knows, 10 Republicans voted against President Donald J. Trump on the impeachment charges of stirring up ‘an insurrection’ even though we know they know that was NOT the case.  Here are their names: (A) Rep. John Katko, NY (B) Liz Cheney, WY (C) Adam Kinzinger, IL (D) Fred Upton, MI (E) Jaime Herrera Beutler, WA (F) Peter Meijer, MI (G) Dan Newhouse, WA (H) Anthony Gonzalez, OH (I) Tom Rice, SC and (J) David Valadao, CA.  This last congressman is especially painful for those of us from California who contributed money to help Valadao take his seat back from carpetbagger T.J. Cox.  He then turns around and drives a shiv in the president.  I guess we will be coming for him in 2022.  Ingrate.  Meanwhile, Chef Vladimir in Washington state says both Newhouse and Beutler are proving to be disappointments.  Will someone please create a vaccine for RINO Republicanism?
  70. 2021 Wednesday L: Famed bassist Tim Bogert died in San Diego, California, at age 76 from the effects of cancer.  He played with Vanilla Fudge[vi], Beck, Bogert & Appice[vii], Cactus[viii], and Vanilla Fudge again until he retired from touring in 2010 due to a horrible motorcycle accident.
  71. 2022 Thursday: Friends, stick around and discover the news of the day along with all of us…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next release from guitar legend Richard Thompson was a five-CD box set: “RT- The Life and Times of Richard Thompson” (February 17, 2006).  This massive collection is broken into five separate portions featuring everything from classic cuts to amazing live renditions to album cuts upon which, he played as a guest or contributed to as a session musician.  One finds a nearly 170-page booklet that goes into great detail about the life and times of this phenomenal artist and priced at less than one hundred bucks, what the heck can you lose?  If you have yet to introduce the music of this lesser-known guitar virtuosos, well this is a glorious (and economical) way in which one can do it.  We hope you rush out to your nearest seller of classic rock music and add it to your collection.  You will be extremely glad you did, that we guarantee.

Wednesday, January 13, 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…

ENDNOTES:

[i] Within the next two decades, we hope to present the music of Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band.

[ii] We are unclear as to when we will celebrate the music of this long-lived group but when we do, you will be the first to know.

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.

[iv] We have no idea when we will begin promoting the music of this fabled country artist but you can be sure we will promote Johnny Cash at some point during the next two decades.

[v] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.    The album, “The Yellow Submarine” appeared on Sunday, 27-November-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[vi] We promoted the music of Vanilla Fudge beginning on Friday, 01-November-2013 through Friday, 15-November-2013.  We hope you will seek this band out and add their music to your growing collection.

[vii] We promoted the music of this venerable British rock band as part of a series of interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This included the Small Faces, Faces, Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood, Jeff Beck, Steve Marriott, Humble Pie, and other interconnected parts.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[viii] We fucked up when we failed to celebrate the music of the hard-rocking band, Cactus, at the same time we shared the music of Vanilla Fudge with you.  We hope to rectify that mistake sometime in the next 15 years.

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

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

82. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, MARCH 23, 2021

37. 1954 Tuesday: As the People’s Army continues trench construction drawing them closer and closer to the main French base at Dien Bien Phu as well as to the outlying ones such as Isabelle, the Dominque bases, the Huguettes, French warplanes are flying as many sorties as possible. They are dropping napalm to expose the artillery and antiaircraft batteries as well as the troop concentration zones so as to disrupt them. Otherwise, Colonel Christian De Castries fears the Viet Minh are going to draw so close as to starve the defenders out. Airstrikes won’t be able to hit the communists without killing their allies.

  60. 2018 Friday: President Donald J. Trump released an order banning most transgender troops from serving in the military except under “limited circumstances.”  Meanwhile, the online classified ads site Craigslist removed its personals section; the action came after the U.S. Senate passed an anti-sex-trafficking bill that could hold the website and others responsible for illegal activity.  Elsewhere in Sochi, Russia, in one of the largest transfers of desert sand ever, a sandstorm in the Sahara transforms the snow from white to orange. 
  61. 2019 Saturday: With the signing of Xi Jinping- Chinese dictator- and Deputy Prime Minister Luigi Di Maio, Italy signs onto China’s Belt and Road Initiative.  A year later, the Italian people are wondering why they are Ground Zero for China’s Wuhan Virus outbreak in Europe.   Meanwhile, with the raising of Syrian Democratic Forces flag over the Syrian city of Baghuz, civilized people proclaim the vanquishing of the ISIS caliphate.  The terrorist scum had held the area for five bloody years. 
  62. 2020 Monday: Due to illness and self-quarantine, the Republican-controlled Senate is not in control with only 48 members present.  The Democrats under Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, at the behest of Speaker Nancy Pelosi will NOT pass a bill designed to protect the country’s economy while providing support to the afflicted unless Republicans sign on to more Obamacare-like government-run medical claptrap as well as all manner of identity politics desires, Green New Deal insanity, increased protections for illegal aliens, and additional Pro-Death protections.  As of the time of this publishing, the GOP was still holding out, hoping the Dems would regain their senses and stop with the insanity but oh, no, they simply won’t surrender their partisan politics.  COVID-19 statistics: earlier in the day, there were 354,677 known cases of the Chinese Virus what with the number of infections up in previous 24 hours standing at 21,115; total known deaths are 15,430, up 940 in 24 hours.  In the United States, total known cases are 35,345 what with 473 deaths, up by 56 in past 24 hours.  This does not account for the stats for the second part of the day.
  63. 2021 Tuesday: Friends, stick around and find out what is going on today both here in the United States and around the world…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

UFO came back on September 26, 2006 with its next studio album, “The Monkey Puzzle,” a superb rocker to be sure flavored with their unique blend of rock-and-roll.  The band was close to being original in that it featured Phil Mogg (vocals), Pete Way (bass/vocals), Paul Raymond (guitars/keyboards/vocals), Andy Parker (drums), and Vinnie Moore (guitars).  If you know anything about this band, you know they are one of the survivors from the glorious days- 1960s and 1970s- UFO coming along at the end of the ‘60s and continuing until modern times which puts them into a category with only the Rolling Stones and part-time Who.  Oh, yeah, Deep Purple remains with us, too, and years ago at the Google site, we spent close to a year presenting their music.  Thus, we are proud to share UFO with our WordPress.com fans.  Join us and celebrate, too!   You can find this album at Amazon.com as well as at Discogs, AllMusic, and other online venues…

  44. 2011 Thursday: North Korea plans to hold the communist hermit nation’s first-ever golf tournament on a course favored by Kim Jung-Il.  Elsewhere, 100 miles off the coast of Tanzania, a British cruise ship is able to fend off an attack by Somali pirates.

  47. 2014 Monday: In West Virginia, 10 people underwent hospitalization and 300,000 people have been unable to use tap water for four days since 4-methylcyclohexane methanol, an industrial chemical, leaked into the Elk River.  Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms conduct the test of WU-14, a new hypersonic missile system, a system reported to have speeds of Mach 8 to Mach 12.
  48. 2015 Tuesday: Hosni Mubarak, former president of Egypt, may be freed after the nation’s high court overturned the sole remaining verdict against him for embezzling public funds; Mubarak has been serving his three-year prison term in a hospital due to poor health.  Elsewhere, following the Charlie Hebdo massacre, the French government announces plans to deploy 10,000 troops across the country to protect sensitive sites.  Damned Islamists are always out there causing trouble…
  49. 2016 Wednesday: The largest Powerball jackpot in history- $1.6 billion- was divided among three winners.  Elsewhere, in the Pakistani city of Quetta, angry jihadists carry out a suicide bombing on a polio center, killing at least 15 people, and wounding far too many others.  Ah, the so-called ‘religion of peace’ strikes yet again.  Meanwhile, in Jalalabad, Afghanistan, ISIS thugs attack the Pakistani Consulate killing at least 9 people and wounding another 12 or more.  Finally, Iran frees 10 U.S. Navy sailors it took into custody when their two patrol boats ‘strayed into Iranian waters.’  No, they did not enter your waters, you scumbags.
  50. 2017 Friday: Turkish strongman Tayyip Recep Erdogan announces that Turkish forces will remain on the island of Cyprus for the rest of time.  They invaded the island during the 1970s and fought to displace the Greeks.  The island has been divided between the two countries ever since.  Speaking of thugs, for the first time the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons blasts Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and members of his regime for using chemical weapons on innocent civilians.
  51.   Meanwhile, thanks to Deep State resistance, a false alarm that warned of a ballistic missile headed for Hawaii sent the islands into a panic, with people abandoning cars on a highway and preparing to flee their homes; officials apologized and said the alert was sent when someone (obviously on purpose) hit the wrong button during a shift change.  So far, the feds have not identified the prick.
  52. 2019 Sunday: In the AFC Division Round, the New England Patriots pound the snot out the Los Angeles Chargers with a final score of 41-28.  In the NFC Division Round, the New Orleans Saints wallop the Philadelphia Eagles by a final score of 20-14, knocking Super Bowl LII champion Eagles out of the running.   Elsewhere, following insane elections in Venezuela in which, many people believe the President of the National Assembly Juan Guaidó won, Caracas police briefly detain him after he said he ‘was prepared to take power.’  This would create an international crisis.
  53. 2020 Monday: The people of Iran continue protesting their illegitimate government by calling for the ouster of the grand ayatollah, someone who should have been droned long ago.  Meanwhile, Sen. Cory “Creepy” Booker, D-NJ, becomes the fifteenth Democrat to leave the running for the 2020 Democratic nomination.  He does this because he has 0-percent support and cannot raise money.  Also, because the man is stranger than f**k and claims NOT to be gay.  Sure, Cory, sure.  Elsewhere, the U.S. expels 21 Royal Saudi Air Force pilots from the country following the shooting in Pensacola, Florida, that took the lives of American service personnel.  The Saudis were found to have jihadist sympathies.  Will we ever learn?
  54. 2021 Wednesday: Although many called for leniency, the feds executed Lisa Montgomery at its Terre Haute prison facility, the first woman executed in 67 years.  Next, the U.S. Supreme Court blocks mail delivery of the abortion drug during the Chi-Com-caused pandemic.  Meanwhile, Acting Attorney-General Rosen warns of violence both in Washington, D.C. on Inauguration Day as well as in all 50 states.  Finally, pot-smoking Mayor Bill Di Blasio of New York City says the city is ‘canceling $17 million in contracts with Donald J. Trump.’  Wow.
  55. 2021 Wednesday A: The wonderful government of Iran has passed a bill calling for the destruction of Israel by the year 2041 as well as for retribution for the POS Quds Force commander, Gen. Qassim Soleimani, whom the U.S. took out in a drone strike on New Year’s Day in 2020.  What better reason to nuke these carpet-making camel jockeys NOW before President Trump leaves office?  Moving on, we learn that ‘fewer than 10 scurrilous Republicans’ support the impeachment of President Donald J. Trump which is occurring now on Capitol Hill in the U.S. House of Representatives.  As the impeachment BS continues, Representative Matt Rosendale, R-Montana, says that Congresswoman Liz Cheney, R-WY, should be ‘stripped of her leadership role,’ something with which, we wholeheartedly agree.  Meanwhile, ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden announces he will select another Obama-Biden alum- Samantha Power- to head USAID.  Next, the U.S. Senate announces confirmation hearings for incoming Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen beginning on January 19, the same day the Democrats want to impeach President Trump a second time.
  56. 2021 Wednesday B: Christopher Ruddy of Newsmax TV says that ‘in a strange way President-elect Joe Biden is listening to his outgoing predecessor President Donald J. Trump in that he is nominating what the country perceives to be moderates to work in his administration and keeping the ultra-left riffraff at arm’s length.’  Interesting point.  Speaking of the 45th president, a recent McLaughlin poll says Trump’s approval ratings have been holding at 49-percent, his highest since the election.  Meanwhile, the U.S. special envoy to South Korea Henry Harris will be leaving his post next week.  Elsewhere, Newt Gingrich says there is ‘enormous danger’ in the ability to dictate whether President Donald J. Trump (or anyone else for that matter) can seek the presidency ever again.’  Nope, times are changing for the worst, folks.  Finally, ever-traitorous “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, the current Senate majority leader, signals he will go along with the second impeachment of President Trump.  What a guy.
  57. 2021 Wednesday C: President Donald J. Trump’s EPA through its push to impose industry-backed regulations is a tactic by which, it can tie the hands of incoming President-elect Joe Biden’s hands when it comes to forcing Green New Deal BS on the American people.  This will allow industry to have a greater say in proceeding with projects than the federal government, which is good, extremely good.  Meanwhile, YouTube has suspended President Donald Trump’s channel on their site.  Censorship run amok yet again, folks.  Elsewhere, at the request of President-elect Joe Biden, Operation Warp Speed’s Dr. Moncef Slaoui has submitted his resignation letter.      
  58. 2021 Wednesday D: Please stick around for tonight’s Super Lotto and Powerball drawings. First, here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3525 with a jackpot of $11,000,000 up for grabs: 03, 17, 21, 27, 35, and Mega 05.  Out of 151,188 winning tickets, the highest winners were two people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $25,559 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at Riviera Foods in Kelseyville, CA 95451 and Shell in Irvine, CA 92606.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #811 with a jackpot of $550,000,000 at stake: 04, 19, 23, 25, 49, and Powerball 14.   Out of 424,484 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Powerball for a prize of $2,768,497 apiece.  One winning ticket was sold at a Chevron in San Diego, CA 92111 and Paul’s Market in San Jose, CA 95112.
  59. 2021 Wednesday E: President Donald J. Trump has been impeached a second time what with 219 Democrats and 10 Republicans voting for and 197 Republicans voting against (232 for, 197 against).  What a disgrace for our country, a politically-motivated impeachment designed to prevent Donald J. Trump from running ever again for the White House.   One thing we have learned is that there is NOT enough support among Republicans for impeachment so the Senate might waffle on forging ahead with a trial.  The negative repercussions could be tremendous for BOTH sides.  Time for President Trump to release ALL UFO files, all JFK assassination files, and all files on the corruption and crookedness of the entire Biden Family.  Do it NOW, Mr. President, do it NOW before our enemies take advantage of our insane politics and light us up.
  60. 2021 Wednesday F: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 92,240,036 confirmed cases, +856,492, 1,975,707, confirmed deaths, +18,955, and 50,922,412 confirmed recoveries, +384,517.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 23,009,789 confirmed cases, up 212,059 from yesterday’s reporting, 383,290 confirmed deaths, UP 4,270, and 9,989,455 confirmed recoveries, UP 73,884.
  61. 2021 Wednesday G: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 2,815,933 confirmed cases, 31,105 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases, 312 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 283,363 confirmed cases, 3,869 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Nebraska: currently, they have 177,883 confirmed cases, 1,847 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 510,063 confirmed cases, 3,771 confirmed deaths, and 429,929 confirmed recoveries. 
  62. 2021 Wednesday H:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,060.47, DOWN 8.22 points (-0.026%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,128.95, UP 56.52 points (+0.43%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,809.84, UP 8.65 points (+0.23%).  The price of GOLD is $1,847.40 per troy oz., -7.50 (-0.40%) while the price of SILVER is $25.36 per troy ounce, -0.207 (-0.81%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,105.40 per troy oz, -5.30 (-0.48%) while the price of COPPER is $3.62 per pound, +0.003 (+0.08%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,397.10 per troy oz, +20.90 (+0.88%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.79 per barrel, -0.12 (-0.23%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.83.
  63. 2021 Wednesday I: In other economic news, consumer prices rose by 0.4-percent.  December saw the largest increase in four months.  The U.S. Department of Labor said that excluding core prices- energy costs and food prices- consumer prices rose by 0.1-percent and just 1.6-percent over the past 12 months.  Rising oil and gas prices as well as increases in the cost of food driving the increase.  Meanwhile, the U.S. bans cotton and tomato imports from Xinjiang Province in communist China amid concerns over the appalling human rights abuses and the rampant use of Uighur slave labor.  Human Rights Watch says that 2020 was the WORST year for human rights abuses in that repressive totalitarian country since 1989.  Everyone knows the Chi-Coms harvest organs from their prisoners and then sell them at astronomical prices around the globe.  Horrible. 
  64. 2021 Wednesday J: Elsewhere, the CEO of Parler says the social app may not return after being de-platformed by a cabal of BIG TECH social media and shadow authoritarians working from behind the scenes to squelch FREE SPEECH.  Finally, President Donald J. Trump gave a five-minute address from the Oval Office imploring Americans NOT to engage in violence even though rumors abound about what’s to come NEXT WEEK.  A poll conducted today says that a majority of Americans expect more violence to follow on the heels of the violence the nation witnessed last week.  Can anyone say, “CHI-COMS are behind this?” They are mad about criticism about Hong Kong as well as their use of slave labor, also U.S. reaching out to Taiwan, the REAL CHINA.
  65. 2021 Wednesday K: As everyone now knows, 10 Republicans voted against President Donald J. Trump on the impeachment charges of stirring up ‘an insurrection’ even though we know they know that was NOT the case.  Here are their names: (A) Rep. John Katko, NY (B) Liz Cheney, WY (C) Adam Kinzinger, IL (D) Fred Upton, MI (E) Jaime Herrera Beutler, WA (F) Peter Meijer, MI (G) Dan Newhouse, WA (H) Anthony Gonzalez, OH (I) Tom Rice, SC and (J) David Valadao, CA.  This last congressman is especially painful for those of us from California who contributed money to help Valadao take his seat back from carpetbagger T.J.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

UFO hurriedly released their first live album on the heels of their sophomore effort- “Live”- on December 21, 1971.  Once again, the band featured Phil Mogg (vocals), Mick Bolton (guitars), Pete Way (bass), and Andy Parker (drums and percussion) but this would be the final outing for guitarist Bolton.  At this point in their career, the group’s sound and style was still evolving so compared to later releases, one mind this much more spacey and exploratory.  Ah, well, we love the album and we encourage everyone to seek it out and consider adding it to your collections- you will be so glad you did.

2020: The people of Iran continue protesting their illegitimate government by calling for the ouster of the grand ayatollah, someone who should have been droned long ago. Meanwhile, Sen. Cory “Creepy” Booker, D-NJ, becomes the fifteenth Democrat to leave the running for the 2020 Democratic nomination. He does this because he has 0-percent support and cannot raise money. Also, because the man is stranger than f**k and claims NOT to be gay. Sure, Cory, sure.

Meanwhile, thanks to Deep State resistance, a false alarm that warned of a ballistic missile headed for Hawaii sent the islands into a panic, with people abandoning cars on a highway and preparing to flee their homes; officials apologized and said the alert was sent when someone (obviously on purpose) hit the wrong button during a shift change. So far, the feds have not identified the prick.
  49. 2019: In the AFC Division Round, the New England Patriots pound the snot out the Los Angeles Chargers with a final score of 41-28. In the NFC Division Round, the New Orleans Saints wallop the Philadelphia Eagles by a final score of 20-14, knocking Super Bowl LII champion Eagles out of the running.
  50. 2020: The people of Iran continue protesting their illegitimate government by calling for the ouster of the grand ayatollah, someone who should have been droned long ago. Meanwhile, Sen. Cory “Creepy” Booker, D-NJ, becomes the fifteenth Democrat to leave the running for the 2020 Democratic nomination. He does this because he has 0-percent support and cannot raise money. Also, because the man is stranger than f**k and claims NOT to be gay. Sure, Cory, sure.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

 

#TT001.1h Max KC #8 01-04-2020 (400)

 

The Troggs returned in 1981 with some smoking performances, this album- “Live at Max’s Kansas City,” (July 02, 1981)- being a good chronicle of their fiery return. The band features Reg Presley (vocals), Chris Britton (guitars/backing vocals- or so we believe), Pete Lucas (bass/backing vocals), and Ronnie Bond (drums). This band was red-hot in its heyday and was smoking hot now. There are 14 amazing tracks on this album which is why we hope you seek it out at Amazon.com. There, you can pick it up in the format, the price, and the condition that works best for you…you can thank us later.
