  39. 1960 Sunday: Founder of the Nation of Islam, Elijah Muhammad, calls for a ‘black state.’[iii].   (Note- wasn’t the nation of Liberia created to be the first ‘black state?’).  The sad thing is, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. wanted the American people to be integrated, intermixed, and one harmonious people.  That was his dream so anything contrary to that dream is nothing more than bullshit and what’s even worse, six decades later America-haters would be trying to tear it all asunder.

  63. 2017 Monday: After less than two weeks, foul-mouth Anthony Scaramucci, aka the Mooch- is forced out of his position as communications director for Donald Trump’s White House.  The next to get the boot is the wily 5th U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly.  This loser first became secretary on January 20, 2017 and served under President Donald J. Trump from then until today.  His replacement, the 5.5th Acting U.S. Secretary of the DHS Elaine Duke assumed office.  She would serve until December 06, 2017.
  64. 2018 Tuesday: The 104th U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, nominated by President Ronald Reagan to replace 99th U.S. Supreme Court Justice Lewis F. Powell Jr., finished his final day on the court and went into retirement.  He took his seat on the nation’s high court on February 18-1988 and left little more than 30 years later.  Long beloved by liberal Americans as the crucial swing vote on numerous cases, they shed tears as he left the court, fearing it would become much more conservative.  Little did they know they would not have to worry about that. [vi] Meanwhile, Facebook announces a major moment of virtue-signaling as it announces it ‘removed Russian-linked accounts that are attempting to interfere in the November 2018 Elections.’[vii] 
  65. 2019 Wednesday: U.S. officials announce a major coup with the news of an airstrike in Pakistan that killed Osama bin Laden’s son, Hamza bin Laden, and a potential successor.  Good, keep on killing these worthless jihadist scumbags.  Meanwhile, after more than 700,000 people sing a petition demanding the Russian government do something about the out-of-control wildfires destroying Siberia (7.4 million acres burned), Vladimir Putin orders Russian troops to aid the locals in fighting the conflagration devouring his country.  ‘Bout time you did something besides interfering in U.S. elections there, Vlad.  
  66. 2020 Friday: Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom continues causing problems for the citizens of California as on Friday, he pardoned five people who had already served time and commuted the sentences of another 21 state prison inmates including more than a dozen convicted of murder some of whose victims included young children and pregnant women.  He did this, or so he says, because of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  What a worthless POS.    One of these scumbags released was a 64-year-old murderer Richard Flowers who, at age 38, murdered an elderly Tulare, California, woman in her home and stole her jewelry.  He received a sentence of life without parole and when a potential parole hearing came up under the previous Governor Jerry Brown, Brown would not free him.

Trump’s approval rate for job performance at 50-percent.  Meanwhile, U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, age 87, left the hospital today following a revisal of a bile duct stint.  God bless you, madam, please get well soon.  Finally, speculation alights on Sen. Kamala Harris, D-CA, as the potential VP pick of Joe Biden.  In order for Ms. Harris to get her senatorial gig, she had an affair with former Assembly Speaker Willie Brown so if she gets the VP nod, with whom did she trade (allegedly) trade favors to get the number two spot on the ballot?
  71. 2021 Saturday: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 198,497,926 confirmed cases, +525,446, 4,232,079 confirmed deaths, +8,931 and 179,252,925 confirmed recoveries, +368,306.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 35,743,144 confirmed cases, UP 65,394 from yesterday’s reporting, 629,310 confirmed deaths, UP 380, [ix] and 29,666,084 confirmed recoveries, UP 16,303.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 310,868 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 93,210 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

  76. 2021 Saturday E: U.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 $4.367 per gallon, $2.972 in Florida, $4.092 in Hawaii, and $3.850 in Washington state. [xvii]    Let’s look at one other location- Kentucky: $2.919.  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 next lowest gasoline price in the world- Curacao: $4.693 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,587,535,043,912 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xix]  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 Philippines, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is United Arab Emirates with $32 billion 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.
  77.  2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 130 for the gibbering jackal of a ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka Willie Brown’s ‘Booty Call Mattress,’ aka the squealing swamp hog of the Everglades, aka the yowling midnight lemur to be in charge of the southern border and to have done little to nothing about it.  It’s also her 36th day since her one and only visit to the border and again to have done nothing about it.  Okay, One American News always presents the costs of illegal immigration for the American People.  First, here is the cost for just this day of caring for the illegals pouring across the southern border: $635,102,752.  Absolutely shocking.  Horrible we know.  Next, here is the cost for this year: $231,328,045,120.  Imagine all this money going to care for ILLEGAL ALIENS!  Next, here are the numbers estimated to have crossed into the United States just this year: 2,376,624.  Finally, here are the CONSERVATIVE estimates as to how many illegal aliens are roaming the land: 36,376,662.  (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).  We tend to disagree with the final number as we said as far back as 2009 that the numbers then were between 35-50 million whereas now, we believe the number to be closer to 75-100 million which means we have an army of storm troopers the Democrats can deploy against the rest of us (which is why ammunition is flying off the shelves right now).
  78. 2021 Saturday G: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– Rep. Andy Biggs, R-AZ 5th congressional district, has written a letter to House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, urging her NOT to include mass amnesty for tens of millions of illegal aliens lurking within the country.  She won’t listen.  
  79. 2021 Saturday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The Biden regime is threatening a new round of lockdowns and restrictions if more Americans don’t rush out and get vaccinated against the Chi-Vi.   Last week, there was mention of the NEW Lambda variant out of Peru being worse than the Delta variant and then within a day, all talk of the Lambda variant (SARS-CoV-2) vanished out of the window, and it was back to pounding the Delta drums.   Amazing how the libs continue guiding all talk on the Chi-Vi and how everyone must rush out and get vaccinated.  Funny that there are more infections among VACCINATED Americans than among unvaccinated.  Something ain’t right here, folks.   Add to that the fact that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci says that mRNA vaccines for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu could be approved for widespread use by next month.  Pushing, pushing, pushing!
  80. 2021 Saturday I: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3582 what with a $12 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner.  Here are the numbers: 16, 18, 30, 32, 38, and Mega 05.  Out of 97,148 winning tickets, the highest winners were 12 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $1,413 apiece.   Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #868 with a jackpot of $199 million up for grabs: 01, 21, 22, 34, 47, and Powerball 04.  Out of 83,515 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $44,999.
  81. 2022 Sunday: IF things do not change over the next two election cycles, we may need to become friendly with the Chi-Coms.  I remember when the country was committed to being the best whereas now, we are ripping ourselves apart, thanks in large part to Chi-Com, Russian, Iranian, and other of our enemies’ machinations.  Race is the Achilles heel of the United States and if our enemies continue noodling away at the seams, at some point, the nation is going to explode.  Add to that the fact that we cannot trust our elected leaders who all seem to be in the pay of Beijing and one can see the old maxim is true: the capitalists will sell the communists the rope with which the communists hang the capitalists.  Personally, I think it’s too late and my family and I are considering relocating to Ireland as a safe haven from the looming storm.  What is the point in remaining in country that is ripping itself to shreds?  Let me know what you all think.  Thanks- Chef Elmer K.

This artwork is #0908 a 20” x 24” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Central Coast.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclees, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

After the Beach Boys went through starts and fits back in the 1960s over Brian Wilson’s “Smile” project, an abbreviated form “Smiley Smile” hit record store shelves on September 16, 1967 (see Monday, May 23, 2022) and since it was nowhere near the project envisioned by composer Brian Wilson, it was considered a flop.  Well, years later, Brian Wilson said, “Screw it,” and relaunched the entire project with a series of live performances and a live album culled from the performance.  “Brian Wilson Presents Smile” came out on September 28, 2004, and is a mind-blowing, joyous project to behold.  NO ONE in his, her, or its right mind questions the fact that Brian Wilson is not an innovative, musical genius, certainly not anyone with sufficient gray matter, that’s for sure.  We hope you will seek this album out and that you will add it to your growing collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-recommended music- we think you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

[v] Hillary was raising money for a long, long time.  Too bad she wasn’t a better candidate and too bad Barack Hussein Obama didn’t do a better job of helping her.

[vi] Both of President Donald J. Trump’s two court picks Neil Gorsuch (#113) and Brett Kavanaugh (#114) have voted against the president who nominated them more often than they have not- just like Associate Justice Kennedy!  What is it about Republican picks?

[vii] Regarding the Russians and election interference, what the f**k else is new?  They have been doing this sort of crap since Josef Stalin was running the country.

354. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, DECEMBER 20, 2021

72. 2020 Sunday C: President Donald J. Trump refutes Fake News claims that he is going to seize government and declare martial law. We know this cannot happen because the military already said, ‘they aren’t going to get involved in the election.’ Meanwhile, the president continues trying to push a stimulus bill for the American people as lawmakers continue haggling with one another over a COVID-19, aka Kung Flu, relief bill that neither Democrats nor Republicans seemingly can pass.

  32. 1942 Sunday: During World War II, the Japanese air force bombs Calcutta, India, for the first time.  Meanwhile, on the Eastern Front as disaster continues to unfold north of Stalingrad among the Italian Eighth Army as the Soviets pummel its troops into nothingness, Field Marshall Erich von Manstein receives the reports from his intelligence officers following their visit with Generals Paulus and Schmidt and begins to realize NOT much can be done to save the German Sixth Army in the dying city.  The Russian counteroffensives threaten not only Army Group Don but also all of its parent group, Army Group A who is fighting in the Caucasus.  He will have to make decisions and quick.
  33. 1943 Monday: Concerned that the Allies were going to establish a second front somewhere in Western Europe, the Fuhrer begins making it known that troops fighting in the East would have to rely on the manpower they already have.  Thus, any future reinforcements will begin being diverted to the West.  This change in plans had been coming for some time and in 1944, it would further debilitate Axis efforts in the USSR.
  34. 1944 Wednesday: During the Battle of the Bulge, German troops surround elements of the U.S. 101st Airborne Division at the Belgium crossroads town of Bastogne.   There, the resistance put up by the Americans against overwhelming odds would throw a monkey wrench into German plans in the drive to capture all important port city Antwerp.  Elsewhere, in Manhattan, New York, future drummer, percussionist, and backing vocalist with the horn-dominated band, Blood, Sweat & Tears- Bobby Colomby- is born on this date.  He would perform with BS&T from 1967-1977.

  44. 1977 Tuesday: The second day of the Great Kern County Dust Storm picks up speed as winds in certain places around Kern County hit 192 miles per hour, burying people and livestock.  Most businesses had no choice other than to shut down but especially restaurants as ventilation systems sucked in dust and dirt and belched it around the kitchen to the point that they could no longer function.  The storm would continue for two more days causing $40 million in damage.  Witnesses recall seeing telephone poles crossing one another along roadways, roofs torn off houses, doors blasted in, windows shattered, cars sandblasted, and people buried- some of them alive- alongside freeways in their cars.  The National Weather Service considered the ‘once in a lifetime’ weather event as one of the top 15 weather events of the century.

  52. 2002 Friday: Two weeks after launching a political firestorm due to some insensitive remarks, Senate Republican Leader Trent Lott resigned his seat.  If Democrats say insensitive things, seldom does anyone require them to leave but Republicans always jump ship.  Meanwhile, the nation’s 10 biggest brokerage firms agreed to pay $1.44 billion and fundamentally to change the way they do business to settle allegations that they had mislead investors by hyping certain companies flawed stocks.  Elsewhere, Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski enters the U.S. Senate on this date.
  53. 2004 Monday: In a sobering assessment of the Iraq War, President George W. Bush acknowledged during a news conference that Americans’ resolve had been shaken by grisly scenes of death and destruction, and he pointedly criticized the performance of U.S.-trained Iraqi troops.  Elsewhere, attorneys presented opening statements in the Robert Blake murder trial in Los Angeles.  A jury later acquitted him of killing his wife, Bonny Lee Bakely, but in a civil trial, the jury found him liable in a wrongful-death lawsuit brought by Bakley’s family.    
  54. 2005 Tuesday: New York City union members shut down the subway system and the bus system for three days.  Meanwhile, a federal judge ruled that “intelligent design” could not be mentioned in biology classes in a Pennsylvania public school district, delivering a stinging attack on the Dover Area School Board. [vii]
  55. 2006 Wednesday: In Great Britain, the Home Office announces plans to require foreign nationals living in the country to have a biometric ID card.  We need the same thing in the United States, for Pete’s sake!  Meanwhile in Somalia, as the civil war there continues, heavy fighting erupts around the interim government’s base at Baidoa.
  56. 2007 Thursday: The U.S. House Intelligence Committee subpoenas the former head of the CIA’s National Clandestine Service Jose Rodriguez to bust his balls over the destruction of CIA interrogation tapes of jihadist thugs and murderers in CIA custody.  Ah, well, you can’t get everything you want.  Meanwhile, the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam, strikes again as a suicide attack targeting a Pakistani government official kills at least 50 people and wounds loads of others.  Elsewhere, four Palestinians get themselves killed as they attempt to attack Israel along its border with the Gaza Strip.  
  57. 2008 Saturday: Reuters reports that three submarine cables mysteriously break that disrupt telephone and internet communications between the Middle East and Asia.
  58. 2009 Sunday: In Palm Springs, California, James Gurley, former lead guitarist with the San Francisco band, Big Brother, and the Holding Company[viii] suffers a heart attack at age 69 and dies.   Elsewhere, U.N. climate talks end in failure thanks to no binding deal among the world’s nations.  Instead, the U.S., Communist China, South Africa, Brazil, and India met behind closed doors and hammered out a NON-binding agreement known as the Copenhagen accord by which, the nations would ‘agree’ to doing better but are under NO obligation to do so.   Meanwhile, as the swine flu (another pandemic from communist China) runs amok, President Barack Obama gets his injection for the disease.
  59. 2010 Monday: The Obama administration seeks the ability to launch raids into Pakistan deeper than they have before.  We thought President Obama was opposed to widening wars or starting new ones.  My, my, my!  Meanwhile, there is a reason for this: a report says that over the course of 2010, 700 foreign troops have lost their lives in Afghanistan to foes who hide across the border in- you guessed it- Pakistan.
  60. 2011 Tuesday: In Egypt, thousands of women protest the Cairo police for having beaten numerous female protesters in Tahir Square in Cairo.  The top U.S. Army general in Iraq- Lloyd Austin- returns from the devastated country.   Meanwhile, the U.S. military rests its case in the courts martial of Private Bradley Manning, the young soldier who handed reams of classified intel over to Julian Assange and WikiLeaks.
  61. 2012 Thursday: People across the United States are supposed to undergo a moment of silence in remembrance of the victims of the Sandy Hook Massacre.   Meanwhile, Vice President Joe Biden and members of the Cabinet and law enforcement officials from across the country met to discuss what could be done about the out-of-control gun violence across the country.  As it would turn out, NOTHING.
  62. 2013 Friday: For the first time since 1927, the Bakersfield High School Drillers football team won the state championship by beating Loomis-Del Oro Golden Eagles in the CIF Division I State Bowl Championship in Carson City, California.  The final score was 56-26.
  63. 2014 Saturday: Peshmerga forces in Iraq push ISIS forces off part of Sinjar Mountain, liberating 1,500 or so Yazidi families who had fled there after the terrorist army drove them from their villages in the valley below the mountain.  Meanwhile, the Obama administration sends four Afghan POWs back to their home country after having held them for more than a decade at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in the camp there.
  64. 2015 Sunday: At the recent Democratic Presidential Primary Debate, Senator Bernie Sanders and former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton go to town on one another over the role of the U.S. military in the world.  Hillary a hawk and Bernie a Chi-Com-loving dove have different views.  Former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley was there, too, but no one gave a s**t.
  65. 2016 Tuesday: Outgoing President Barack Hussein Obama bans oil drilling in both the Arctic and along the Eastern Seaboard.  Meanwhile, the World Meteorological Association says that 2016 is going to be the hottest year on record driving young climate change activists to run amok in the streets, believing the planet is going to die.  Four years later, it’s still here and doing better, no thanks to the Chi-Com Bat Flu of 2020.   Elsewhere, the Trump transition team continues requesting information from the U.S. State Department regarding its donations to environmental groups.
  66. 2017 Wednesday: Democracy Now (and other liberal groups) are wailing that the Republican-controlled Congress passes a massive tax overhaul group that is going to benefit the nation’s richest Americans and corporations.  Again, the ‘richest Americans and corporations’ provide the most jobs.  Meanwhile, as rent-a-mobs protest in the streets, the very same congress passes a budget bill that won’t provide additional aid to DREAMERS.  Oh, boohoo.   
  67. 2018 Thursday: After ‘disagreements’ with President Donald J. Trump on military strategy- namely, keeping troops in West Africa, East Africa, Afghanistan, and Syria- U.S. Secretary of Defense James “Mad Dog” Mattis announces his resignation effective at the end of the year.  The president would send him packing sooner…
  68. 2019 Friday: Awaiting the House Democrats to walk the impeachment papers over to the U.S. Senate, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his fellow GOP senators plot the upcoming impeachment strategy.  Unable to really generate honest articles of impeachment against President Trump, the Democrats have cobbled together two laughable articles of impeachment which over the course of time would become known to everyone.  The Democrats in the Senate would DEMAND WITNESSES.  Folks, the Senate hears from NO witnesses as the Senate members are the jury and the party doing the impeachment presents its case, win, or lose.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump establishes the U.S. Space Force on this date to counter Chi-Com, Russian, and Iranian threats in the war domain of outer space.

  70. 2020 Sunday A: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Yellow Bat Flu- the -disease the Chi-Coms manufactured in their Wuhan biowarfare lab and their allies, the Democratic Party- used to throw the election to “Pro-China Joe” Biden, aka “Chi-Com Joe”:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 76,760,893 confirmed cases, +634,728, 1,692,151, confirmed deaths, +8,617, and 43,244,094 confirmed recoveries, +280,463 (last week, the number was much higher so some funny business is going on here, folks).  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 17,975,428 confirmed cases, up 346,135 from yesterday’s reporting, 320,595 confirmed deaths, UP 3,061, and 7,925,626 confirmed recoveries, UP 67,965.
  71. 2020 Sunday B: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 1,869,125 confirmed cases, 22,653 confirmed deaths (number readjusted DOWN from last week), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 20,257 confirmed cases, 282 confirmed deaths, and no longer any mention of confirmed recoveries at this point.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 226,551 confirmed cases, 3,169 confirmed deaths (down from a week ago), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Georgia- currently, they have 562,479 confirmed cases, 10,383 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo is living there: 374,760 confirmed cases, 3,099 confirmed deaths, and 348,106 confirmed recoveries.   Speaking of Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu received his Bat Flu vaccine today on live TV.  Elsewhere, although the world is contending with the Wuhan bat flu, economist Stephen Moore says ‘2021 should be very bright thanks to the Chi-Vi vaccine.’ Meanwhile, U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams says the country ‘should be normal by later spring or early summer.’  Finally, the Moderna vaccine is out on the road in the U.S. and people could be receiving their vaccinations tomorrow.  
  72. 2020 Sunday C:  President Donald J. Trump refutes Fake News claims that he is going to seize government and declare martial law.  We know this cannot happen because the military already said, ‘they aren’t going to get involved in the election.’   Meanwhile, the president continues trying to push a stimulus bill for the American people as lawmakers continue haggling with one another over a COVID-19, aka Kung Flu, relief bill that neither Democrats nor Republicans seemingly can pass.  We begin voting them out in 2022, 2024, 2026 and on and on and on.  Meanwhile, outgoing Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard- a leader of the people- is pushing for COVID-19 relief for small businesses.  Will anyone listen?
  73. 2020 Sunday D: The Save America Bus Tour with Senator Ted Cruz at the helm pulls into Cumming, Georgia, today.  Yesterday, it was in Savannah, as the battle to keep the U.S. Senate from the communist Democrats continues.  Meanwhile, as we continue learning more dirt on that scumbag, Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell and his ties to the Chi-Coms via to sleeping with an MSS agent for several years, information is beginning to come to light on another Democrat Congressman Adam Schiff.  A driving force in the fake impeachment of President Trump and his phone call with Volodymyr Zelensky, Ukraine’s president, we now learn that Schiff has deep ties to Burisma, the Ukrainian natural gas company.  Boris Pasternak of Burisma held fundraisers for Congressman Schiff as well as funneled money from George Soros’ left-wing ‘think tanks,’ Atlantic Council being one.  He also received cash from Blackrock and Franklin-Templeton Investments.  What a scumbag.
  74. 2020 Sunday E: The ‘religion of peace’ strikes again in Kabul, Afghanistan, as two car bombings kill nine people and wound another 20 citizens.  One must love Islam.  Meanwhile, U.S. troops are leaving Somalia for neighboring countries.  Elsewhere, the U.S. emplaces sanctions on Chi-Com companies involved in the phony elections in Venezuela.  Finally, in Great Britain, Prime Minister Boris Johnson is using the communist Chinese virus to cancel Christmas and more or less declares a severe lockdown of the British people all in the name of protecting people from the Wuhan Bat Flu.  Boris has gone crazy.  
  75. 2020 Sunday F: “Tiger King” Joe Exotic is seeking a pardon from President Trump.  Former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin, R, is urging a pardon for Julian Assange as are many for Edward Snowden.  Meanwhile, President Trump tweets that ‘John Bolton is the stupidest man alive.’  Many of us used to believe Mr. Bolton was a good man; we now know he is little more than a worthless POS who embodies the Military-Industrial Complex and endless, endless war…  
  76. 2020 Sunday: This is where we were at last year: even though it’s Sunday, the Chi-Coms and their allies in Canada, Iran, Russia, Venezuela, Cuba, North Korea, and in the Democratic Party here in the U.S. are up to no good.  Stick around to discover exactly what they are doing…
  77. 2021 Monday: Welcome to the end of the year at the AICPENDBLOG.COM!

Sunday, December 20, 2020, Today in History:

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


Monday, December 20, 2021:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We hope to advertise this book for historical purposes on this date. 

[ii] We promoted the music of the Association beginning on Wednesday, 25-September-2013 through Monday, 07-October-2013.  These guys were amazing, we hope you will check them out and consider adding them to your growing collection of albums and CDs. 

[iii] We look forward to sharing the music of KISS sometime in the next 10-15 years.  We hope you will still be with us when we do because YOU won’t want to miss them. 

[iv] We expect to do the music of Jethro Tull, Wild Turkey, Ian Anderson, and Paris sometime in the next 5-6 years.  We hope you will still be with us.

[v] We promoted the music of the James Gang beginning on Saturday, 11-August-2012 through Monday, 27-August-2012.  We did not do the solo discography of Joe Walsh at the time but when we arrive at the Eagles, we most certainly will.

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

[vii] This is typical of liberal leftwing judges as communists do not believe in God and always go after any mention of God or His ‘intelligent design,’ because communists do not want humankind to believe in anything greater than human beings.  We say, “BULLSHIT” to this, shame on the judge.  If leftists did not fear God as much as they do, they would remain silent.  You never see leftist judges go after Muslims.

[viii] We promoted the music of Big Brother and the Holding Company, beginning on Monday, 18-July-2011 through Tuesday, 26-July-2011.  At the time, we were not farsighted enough to offer the music of Janis Joplin but hope to do so at some point in the near future when we return to promoting the music of American rock bands.

.

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!

212. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, JULY 31, 2021

KKK. 2020 Friday: Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom continues causing problems for the citizens of California as on Friday, he pardoned five people who had already served time and commuted the sentences of another 21 state prison inmates including more than a dozen convicted of murder some of whose victims included young children and pregnant women. He did this, or so he says, because of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu. What a worthless POS.

  37. 1960 Sunday: Founder of the Nation of Islam, Elijah Muhammad, calls for a ‘black state.’[iii] (Note- wasn’t the nation of Liberia created to be the first ‘black state?’).  The sad thing is, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. wanted the American people to be integrated, intermixed, and one harmonious people.  That was his dream so anything contrary to that dream is nothing more than bullshit and what’s even worse, six decades later America-haters would be trying to tear it all asunder.
  38. 1961 Monday: Israel welcomes its 1,000,000-immigrant arrival on this date. Elsewhere, the first tie in an All-Star Game major league baseball history took place when officials stopped the game in the 9th inning due to rain at Boston’s Fenway Park.  Meanwhile, IBM introduced its first Selectric typewriter on this date with its distinctive “typeball.”

  57. 2014 Thursday: President Obama authorizes the use of airstrikes against ISIS trash in Syria as well as in Iraq should they threaten any American military personnel as well as for cargo planes to deliver food to border areas between Syria, Iraq, and Turkey. Meanwhile, the death toll from the worst recorded Ebola outbreak in history surpassed 700 in West Africa.
  58. 2015 Friday: After killing the beloved lion, Cecil, the Zimbabwean authorities demand that the United States extradite American dentist, Walter James Palmer.  Zimbabwe says the dentist lured the lion from a game preserve so he could shoot it on a safari.

  61. 2018 Tuesday: The 104thS. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, nominated by President Ronald Reagan to replace 99th U.S. Supreme Court Justice Lewis F. Powell Jr., finished his final day on the court and went into retirement. He took his seat on the nation’s high court on February 18-1988 and left little more than 30 years later. Long beloved by liberal Americans as the crucial swing vote on numerous cases, they shed tears as he left the court, fearing it would become much more conservative.  Little did they know they would not have to worry about that.[vi] Meanwhile, Facebook announces a major moment of virtue-signaling as it announces it ‘removed Russian-linked accounts that are attempting to interfere in the November 2018 Elections.’[vii] 
  62. 2019 Wednesday: U.S. officials announce a major coup with the news of an airstrike in Pakistan that killed Osama bin Laden’s son, Hamza bin Laden, and a potential successor. Good, keep on killing these worthless jihadist scumbags.  Meanwhile, after more than 700,000 people sing a petition demanding the Russian government do something about the out-of-control wildfires destroying Siberia (7.4 million acres burned), Vladimir Putin orders Russian troops to aid the locals in fighting the conflagration devouring his country.  ‘Bout time you did something besides interfering in U.S. elections there, Vlad.  
  63. 2020 Friday: Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom continues causing problems for the citizens of California as on Friday, he pardoned five people who had already served time and commuted the sentences of another 21 state prison inmates including more than a dozen convicted of murder some of whose victims included young children and pregnant women. He did this, or so he says, because of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  What a worthless POS.    One of these scumbags released was a 64-year-old murderer Richard Flowers who, at age 38, murdered an elderly Tulare, California, woman in her home and stole her jewelry.  He received a sentence of life without parole and when a potential parole hearing came up under the previous Governor Jerry Brown, Brown would not free him. (For more information on these felons, please see <https://www.politico.com/states/california/story/2020/03/27/newsom-grants-clemency-to-26-including-man-who-stabbed-elderly-woman-to-death-1269447&gt;).

Here are the numbers for the United States: 4,625,180 confirmed cases, UP by 62,570 new cases, 155,246 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,201 new deaths, and 2,262,974 confirmed recoveries, UP by 38,679 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them).
  65. 2020 Friday B: 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: 493,588 confirmed cases, UP 8,086 cases, 9,005 confirmed deaths, UP by 96, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 1,989 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,226 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 55,803 confirmed cases, 1,564 confirmed deaths, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.
  66. 2020 Friday C: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 26,428.32, UP 114.67 points (+0.44%). Next, the NASDAQ: 10,745.27, UP 157.46 points (+1.49%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,271.12, UP 24.90 points (+0.77%).  The price of GOLD is $1,973.30 per troy oz., +10.50 (+0.53%) while the price of SILVER is $24.63 per troy ounce, +0.414 (+1.71%).  The price of PLATINUM is $919.70 per troy oz, +0.80 (+0.09) while the price of COPPER is $2.86 per pound, -0.0085 (-0.30%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $40.43 per barrel, +0.16 (+0.40%).  Currently, one dollar U.S. = 6.97 yuan.  Meanwhile, the U.S. unemployment rate has dropped from 13.3-percent in June to 11.1-percent in July.
  67. 2020 Friday D: Rasmussen polling has President Donald J. Trump’s approval rate for job performance at 50-percent. Meanwhile, U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, age 87, left the hospital today following a revisal of a bile duct stint.  God bless you, madam, please get well soon.  Finally, speculation alights on Sen. Kamala Harris, D-CA, as the potential VP pick of Joe Biden.  In order for Ms. Harris to get her senatorial gig, she had an affair with former Assembly Speaker Willie Brown so if she gets the VP nod, with whom did she trade (allegedly) trade favors to get the number two spot on the ballot?
  68. 2021 Saturday: Friends, here we are, a Saturday.  As a loyal Democrat, I am troubled by much of what is going on…my party once fought back against tyranny now we ARE tyranny.  NO more lockdowns, NO more COVID-19 lies, hydroxychloroquine does indeed work, and anyone who claims that it doesn’t or that never-ending lockdowns work needs to have their heads examined…by a Chi-Com shrink.

“You and Me in the Jungle” is indeed a Wild Turkey album, one that came out on February 12, 2007.  A band with a fabled history, the Turk can rock with the best of them and boy do they.  As always, the band delivers powerhouse performances going all the way back to the 1970s which is why we encourage everyone to seek this album out, give it a good listen, and then add it to their growing library of rock and roll music.  We believe you will be glad you did.  Thank you.

ENDNOTES:


[i] We plan on promoting the music of the Move, Electric Light Orchestra, Wizzard, Roy Wood, and Jeff Lynne after we wrap up Supertramp.  Stay with us.

[ii] We definitely look forward to doing the music of R.E.M. at some point in the next five years.

[iii] Let’s give him Puerto Rico. 

[iv] We shared the music of the Rolling Stones (and the group’s individual members) beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members solo projects.

[v] Hillary was raising money for a long, long time.  Too bad she wasn’t a better candidate and too bad Barack Hussein Obama didn’t do a better job of helping her.

[vi] Both of President Donald J. Trump’s two court picks Neil Gorsuch (#113) and Brett Kavanaugh (#114) have voted against the president who nominated them more often than they have not- just like Associate Justice Kennedy!  What is it about Republican picks?

[vii] Regarding the Russians and election interference, what the f**k else is new?  They have been doing this sort of crap since Josef Stalin was running the country.

  61. 2020 Tuesday: Neil Cavuto is still expressing outrage as are numerous other liberal talking heads and pundits due to him being unashamed that he is taking hydroxychloroquine sulfate as a preventative against the Chinese Virus.  Speaking of COVID-19, here are the stats for the world: 4,893,195 number of confirmed cases, 322,861 confirmed deaths, but 1,686,487 confirmed recoveries which is good.   In the United States, we have 1,558,631 confirmed cases, 92,258 confirmed deaths, but 297,153 confirmed recoveries which again is great.  In the three states where we have chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, we begin with California first: 81,795 number of confirmed cases, 3,334 confirmed deaths, but 0 confirmed recoveries since Gov.

Ige.  Finally, we have Washington state where they have a crackpot governor talking about ‘conspiracies from the planet Pluto,’ here are the stats: 18,811 number of confirmed cases, 1,031 confirmed deaths, but 0 confirmed recoveries due to the state not reporting them.  Meanwhile, communist China continues misreporting the statistics but sources within Hong Kong continue getting the truth out and the numbers are 10-15-percent higher than what Beijing is reporting.  Go figure.  
  62. 2021 Wednesday:  Everyone knows that the Democratic-Socialists are up to no good but we never know what it is they are doing until they do it so stick around and discover whatever it is along with us…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On August 23, 2013, Badfinger’s record company combined three albums- “Badfinger” and “Wish You Were Here” along with “Live at the BBC 1972-3.”  What more can one ask for as you get some excellent music for the price of, uh, well, around $50.  In the era of “Pro-China Joe” Biden, a time in which jobs are scarce, wages low, stagflation befalling the citizens of the country thanks to the pro-Chi-Com policies of this fraudulent administration, prices are going up.  Still, if you act now, you can save $10-15 as each week that passes with Methuselah in the White House, prices are going to continue soaring.  Please, seek this one out now and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

Wednesday, May 19, 2021:

ENDNOTES:


[i] We promoted the music of the Who and of its individual band members beginning on Monday, 03-August-2015 through Sunday, 29-November-2015.  We hope you will seek out the music of this veteran British band as well as of Pete Townsend, John Entwistle, Keith Moon, and Roger Daltrey.  We know you will enjoy them.

[ii] We look forward to sharing the music of this famed, “Little Ol’ Band from Texas,” ZZ Top sometime in the next decade.

[iii] Not sure as to when we will be promoting the music of Curved Air but when we do, you will be among the first to know.

[iv] We are not sure when AC/DC will be in the works but you bet they will be at some point, possibly in 2027-2028.

[v] We should have promoted the music of Eric Clapton when we did the music of both Cream and the Yardbirds but we failed to do so.  We hope to do it extremely soon so please remain vigilant for the day we do.  We thank you.

[vi] We hope to promote the music of the Village People in the not-too-distant future.  Don’t want anyone calling us homophobic. 

[vii] Not sure when we will do the music of Freddie and the Dreamers but one day, we most certainly will so continue reading our political site until we do.
