  18. 1929 Monday: Former Interior Secretary Albert B. Fall, one of the main figures of the Teapot Dome Scandal, went on trial in Washington, D.C., charged with accepting a bribe from oil tycoon Edward L. Doheny.  A jury found Fall guilty and sentenced him to a year in prison and a fine of $100,000; however, he ended up serving nine months.  Rather ironically, a jury acquitted Doheny for offering the bribe that the other jury convicted Fall of taking.
  19. 1933 Saturday: In the 30th World Series, the New York Giants beat the Washington Senators, 4 games to one.
  20. 1935 Monday: In the 32nd World Series, the Detroit Tigers beat the Chicago Cubs 4 games to two.

  22. 1939 Saturday: Future saxophonist/vocalist, Colin Cooper, with the British rock band, Climax Blues Band[iii], is born in England on this date.  
  23. 1940 Monday: German troops- at the ‘invitation’ of the Romanian government- enter the Eastern European country with the express purpose of protecting the incredibly important oilfields from a surprise British attack.  How exactly the British would be able to get there from North Africa is unclear, but German Fuhrer Adolf Hitler wanted to safeguard his oil supply.
  24. 1941 Tuesday: The fight for Moscow continues as the Red Army continues its delaying tactics to halt the German advance no matter the cost.  German panzers plow through the Vyazma defensive line encircling six Soviet armies.  Fighting is fierce, the weather continues growing colder, and both sides understand that this is a do or die situation.  Fear is beginning to grip the citizens of Moscow as Luftwaffe bombers continue hammering Russian concentrations setting up defensive lines outside the city.  
  25. 1942 Wednesday: At Stalingrad, the Russians employ Katusha rockets for the first time and destroy a German battalion.  The German troops had not seen this weapon before and named the truck-based multiple rocket launchers, “Stalin’s Organ.”  Heavy fighting seethes back and forth around the tractor factory.  Up until this point, Soviet workers had been able to turn out T-34 tanks that immediately went into battle with ad hoc crews.  The Soviets expected that once a tank entered combat, it had a lifespan of 24-36 hours.
  26. 1943 Thursday: In the Caucasus, Soviet forces capture Taman on the western Kuban Peninsula.  There is a great movie, “The Cross of Iron,” (1977) starring James Coburn and Maximillian Schnell that is set in this campaign, known as the “Long Retreat” by the German forces.  Times had changed for the Axis troops where once they had been on top, now they were struggling to survive.
  27. 1944 Saturday: At the Auschwitz Concentration Camp in eastern Poland, the Jewish inmates stage an uprising and burn down the crematorium.  Elsewhere, Axis ally Finland is fending off Soviet forces pushing into the northern part of their country.  The Finns are growing frantic, fearful that their alliance with Germany will lead to their demise.  Still, they are a strong culture determined to bleed the hated Russians as much as possible.
  28. 1949 Friday: The Republic of East Germany formed on this date.
  29. 1950 Saturday: U.S. military forces invade North Korea by crossing the 38th Parallel.  This was never the plan.  No, originally, the idea was to push the North Koreans back across the boundary between them and South Korea but since the Soviet-backed northerners were fleeing pall mall, it made sense to pursue them to the end.  This would go incredibly wrong. Meanwhile, in the 47th World Series, the New York Yankees sweep the Philadelphia Phillies.
  30. 1951 Sunday: David Ben-Gurion forms the Israeli government.  Elsewhere, the Western Hills Hotel in Fort Worth, Texas, became the first hotel to feature all-foam rubber mattresses and pillows.
  31. 1952 Tuesday: In the 49th World Series, not only do the New York Yankees beat The Los Angeles Dodgers 4 games to 3, they tie their OWN record of four consecutive World Series wins.

  40. 1981 Wednesday: Following the assassination of Anwar Sadat, the Egyptian Parliament named Vice President Hosni Mubarak as the acting president of Egypt.
  41. 1982 Thursday: The Andrew Lloyd Webber-Tim Rice musical, “Cats,” opened on Broadway.  The show closed September 10, 2000, after record-setting 7,485 performances.  Elsewhere, another record of sorts was set when 147 million shares underwent exchange on the New York Stock Exchange.
  42. 1984 Sunday: Walter Payton of the Chicago Bears passes the rushing record of Jim Brown as the all-time leader.
  43. 1985 Monday: Filthy Palestinian gunmen hijacked the Italian cruise liner, Achille Lauro, in the Mediterranean.  The hijackers killed U.S. tourist Leon Klinghoffer who was Jewish but then surrendered two days after taking over the ship.  Meanwhile, the United States announced that it would no longer automatically comply with World Court decisions.  Thank you, President Ronald Reagan!
  44. 1988 Friday: After 8 months of marriage, Robin Givens files for divorce from boxer Mike Tyson.
  45. 1989 Saturday: Hungary’s Communist Party renounced Marxism in favor of democratic socialism during a party congress in Budapest.
  46. 1991 Monday: University of Oklahoma law professor Anita Hill publicly accused U.S. Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas of making sexually inappropriate comments when she worked for him.  However, Thomas denied the accusations and people came to see the event yet another attempt by Democrats to take down ANY Republican nominee in any way they could.
  47. 1992 Wednesday: Trade representatives of the United States, Canada, and Mexico initialed the North American Free Trade Agreement in San Antonio, Texas, in the presence of President George H.W. Bush, Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, and Mexican President Carlos Salinas de Gortari.
  48. 1993 Thursday: President Bill Clinton sent more troops, heavy armor, and naval firepower to Somalia.
  49. 1994 Friday: President Bill Clinton dispatched an aircraft carrier to the Persian Gulf when observers reported Iraqi troops moving towards Kuwait.  The President also placed the Army on alert.
  50. 1996 Monday: Fox News Channel much to the outrage of the liberal left made its debut on this date.
  51. 1998 Wednesday: The U.S. government filed an anti-trust suit that alleged Visa and Mastercard inhibit competition by preventing banks from offering other credit cards.  Elsewhere, gay college student Matthew Shepard was beaten and left tied to a wooden fencepost outside of Laramie, Wyoming; five days later, he died.  The authorities arrested Russell Henderson and Aaron McKinney who are serving life sentences for the brutal crime.
  52. 2001 Sunday: The current war in Afghanistan as the United States and Britain launched airstrikes against military targets and Osama bin Laden’s terrorist training camps in the wake of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.  Meanwhile, Barry Bonds, of the San Francisco Giants, hit his 73rd home run of the season, setting a new Major League Baseball record.
  53. 2003 Tuesday: In California, Arnold Schwarzenegger wins the governorship in the recall of Governor Gray Davis.  
  54. 2004 Thursday: President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney conceded that Saddam Hussein had NO weapons of mass destruction as they tried to shift the Iraq war debate to a new issue, arguing that Saddam was abusing the food-for-oil program.  We think it should be clear that Bush committed a grievous error invading Iraq and that toppling the scumbag dictator only increased the power of neighboring Iran.
  55. 2008 Tuesday: The misery worsened on Wall Street, as the Dow lost more than 500 points and all the major indexes slid more than 5 percent.
  56. 2011 Friday: Over 110 people undergo arrest for participating in one of the largest identity theft and retail crime rings in U.S. history.

  58. 2013 Monday: A partial federal government shutdown lingered, rattling markets in the U.S. and overseas while a gridlocked Congress betrayed little or no urgency toward resolving the impasse.  Meanwhile, Americans James Rothman and Randy Schekman and German-born researcher Thomas Suedhof won the Nobel Peace prize in medicine for discoveries on how proteins and other material are transported within cells.
  59. 2014 Tuesday: Wal-Mart announces that, due to the Affordable Care Act, it will increase health benefit costs for all employees and end health benefits for its 30,000 or so workers with fewer than 30 hours per week; the changes will take place in January 2015.
  60. 2015 Wednesday: Following the tragic bombing by U.S. warplanes on a hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan, which killed several people and wounded numerous others, President Barack Obama offers a formal apology to the medical charity group, Doctors without Borders.
  61. 2016 Friday: In what the Washington Post believes is the silver bullet that is going to destroy the presidential campaign of businessman Donald J. Trump, they release a video in which, the New Yorker brags to Billy Bush on a segment of Entertainment Tonight in which, he explains that being ‘rich allows him to get away with groping and kissing women against their will.’  The comments were made about contestants in beauty contests in which, the real estate developer had part ownership.  It did NOT destroy him. 
  62. 2017 Saturday: Country music star Jason Aldean, who had been on stage at an outdoor concert in Las Vegas less than a week earlier when a gunman opened fire on the crowd from high up in a hotel room, paid tribute and to late Tom Petty by opening “Saturday Night Live” with Petty’s song, “I Won’t Back Down.”
  63. 2018 Sunday: Communist China announces that it has Meng Hongwei, the chief of Interpol, in its custody after the global law enforcement officer had gone ‘missing.’  Hongwei subsequently resigns from the organization.  After holding him on charges of corruption ranging from 2005 to 2017, the Chi-Coms send him to jail for 13.5 years following his conviction on January 21, 2020. 
  64. 2019 Monday: Democrat and GOP lawmakers blast President Donald J. Trump over his decision to pull U.S. troops out of Syria which will leave allied Kurdish forces vulnerable to angry Turks across the border who want to go in there, establish a ‘safe zone’ and kill as many Kurds as they possibly can.  Critics of the president call what he’s doing goes against the grain in U.S.-allied relations and threaten terrible things are going to occur if someone does not stop him.  Meanwhile, Democrats in the House continue building up to their impeachment inquiry.  The 45th president is taking it from all sides.
  65. 2020 Wednesday: Reports continue coming in from around the nation of people receiving multiple mail-in ballots even though they live alone, or family members are dead.  It is clear that the Democrats are doing everything imaginable and somethings that aren’t to steal the elections in November.  When the GOP wins back the House, keeps the Senate, and Donald Trump has another four years (should have another eight due to the Obama-led coup against him), and the GOP wins more state houses, we will need a new Constitutional amendment in which, the federal government has oversight over the elections process, can demand voter ID, NO early voting, voting in person, and sentences of up to 20 years in prison for any voter fraud with NO early release, even for pandemics such as the Chi-Vi.  We cannot have Democrat-held states trying to subvert the elections process because once no one has faith in election outcomes, we will be going down a dark path from which there is no return. 
  66. 2020 Wednesday A: The New York Times endorses “Pro-China Joe” Biden; what took them so long?  President Donald J. Trump calls for ‘stand-alone’ stimulus checks of $1,200 per citizen since the Democrat-held House of Representatives continues to defy both the president and the GOP-held Senate with their insane demands.  Meanwhile, a Washington Examiner/YouGov poll says a ‘majority of the American people do NOT want a liberal Supreme Court.   Moving on, down in Texas, a grand jury indicts Netflix on its film, “Cuties,” that promotes and praises pedophilia and the victimization of young prepubescent girls as some sort of ‘artistic film.’  Good.  Sue them, shut them down or break them up.   Finally, as Cat 4 storm Delta continues to storm across the western Caribbean region, 57 oil rigs in the gulf begin evacuating all personnel.  Speaking of “Chi-Com Joe” Biden, we learn at his last town hall meeting with Lester Holt as the moderator, the ‘undecided voters’ were hand-picked Biden SUPPORTERS.  What an embarrassment.
  67. 2020 Wednesday B: Speaking of the Chi-Coms and their tools like “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his running mate, Kamala Harris, Beijing WARNED the U.S. NOT to reestablish diplomatic relations with Taiwan.  Here is what we say: “F**K THEM!”  Speaking of the Chi-Coms and their Wuhan Virus pandemic, here are the latest stats: 35,998,606 confirmed cases, UP by 344,335 cases, 1,052,736 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,927 deaths, and 25,055,487 confirmed recoveries, UP by 220,491 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 7,638,376 confirmed cases, UP by 84,984 new cases, 214,902 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,440 new deaths, and 4,958,537 confirmed recoveries, UP by 52,905 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt motherf**kers).  Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 281,481 confirmed cases, 1,824 confirmed deaths, and 216,613 confirmed recoveries.
  68. 2020 Wednesday C: 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: 841,583 confirmed cases, 16,301 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 13,090 confirmed cases, 159 confirmed deaths, and 10,470 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 94,932 confirmed cases, 2,262 confirmed deaths, but like California, the palooka-faced governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more soon-to-be-state, if the Democrats have their way: District of Columbia: 15,697 confirmed number of cases, 632 confirmed deaths, and 12,350 confirmed number of recoveries- thank you, Mayor Muriel Bowser for sharing the number of recoveries.
  69. 2020 Wednesday D: Here are today’s BIG Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 28,303.46, UP a whopping 530.70 points (+1.91%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,364.60, UP 210.00 points (+1.91%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,419.45, UP 58.50 points (+1.74%).  The price of GOLD is $1,890.40 per troy oz., -0.40 (-0.02%) while the price of SILVER is $23.90 per troy ounce, +0.004 (+0.02%).  The price of PLATINUM is $868.90 per troy oz, +2.10 (+0.24%) while the price of COPPER is $3.03 per pound, -0.0055 (-0.18%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,382.10 per troy oz, -9.10 (-0.38%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $40.06 per barrel, +0.11 (+0.28%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.79 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 22.46.
  70. 2020 Wednesday E: As everyone knows, we spend hours per day tabulating the collusion between the Chi-Coms and their stooges in the Democratic Party.  Today, ancient actress best known for her role in “Barbarella,” and for going to North Vietnam during the height of the war in Vietnam, speaking to U.S. POWS and then relaying messages they told her back to their captors- Jane Fonda- says that ‘COVID-19 is God’s (to her, Satan’s) gift to the Democratic Party.  Wow.  Jane, time for you to go swallow a bottle of arsenic and join your master in HELL.  Worthless c**t.
  71. 2020 Wednesday F: The vice-presidential debate occurred tonight with the sitting VP Mike Pence going up against challenger, Democratic Senator Kamala Harris of California.  Unlike last week’s battle between President Donald J. Trump and not one but TWO adversaries- ‘moderator’ Chris Wallace of the Fox News Channel, one of the reasons why we no longer watch FNC, and former Vice President Joseph R. “Pro-China” Biden, this one was much more cordial and politie.  We received different vibes tonight- Mike Pence was solid and unflappable and Senator Harris managed to keep the bitchiness factor under control.   It seemed as though moderator Susan Page allowed the challenger to go on while she tried to restrict the vice president from answering questions put to him in full.  Anyhow, the debate was far better than the first presidential debate last week although neither side would ever answer the questions asked directly but generally chose to answer the previous one or the one before.  I will say it is shameful to ask any president if ‘he will leave the White House if he loses the election.’  Of course, they will but it is important that our elections are fair and when the Democrats have no problem showing they are doing everything to STEAL it, who would commit to such an answer?  The election must be fair.
  72. 2021 Thursday: Tonight’s Thursday Night Football game features the Los Angeles Rams (3-1-0) at the Seattle Seahawks (2-2-0). The Rams returned to form by beating the Seahawks by a final score of 27-16.  (Note- Seahawks- get rid of those horrible lime green uniforms). Meanwhile, in the MLB American League Divisional Playoffs, in Game 1 between the Chicago White Sox and the Houston Astros, the Astros win by a final score of 6-1.  In the other game between the Boston Red Sox and the Tampa Bay Rays, the Rays win Game 1 by a final score of 5-0.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Fairport Convention returned with their next album, “Liege and Lief” on December 16, 1969.  A glorious romp in English folk rock music, the album captivates the listener from start to finish.  The album remained on the charts for nearly 18 weeks so it proved that even losing the group’s founding drummer, the show would go on.  The lineup now featured the stunning Sandy Denny (vocals, guitars, keyboards), Richard Thompson (guitars, vocals, and other stringed instruments), Simon Nichol (guitars, vocals), Ashley Hutchings (basses, jug, backing vocals), Dave Swarbrick (fiddle and viola), and Dave Mattacks (drums and percussion).  We hope you will seek this album out, give it a good listen, and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure.  Compared to modern-day music, Fairport Convention beats all of it hands down every single time.

S. 1943 Wednesday: SS Chief Heinrich Himmler demands acceleration to the “Final Solution,’ the annihilation of the world’s Jewry. The Reichsfuhrer may suspect that the war is going against the Third Reich so the elimination of the world’s Jewry- as well as homosexuals, Catholic priests, Gypsys, Jehovah’s Witnesses and communists- must proceed at full throttle.

DAY TWO-HUNDRED-AND-SIXTY OF THE BIDEN REGIME

Bush said the U.S. economy was going to be ‘just fine’ in the long run but cautioned that the massive rescue plan would require time to work.  The Dow Jones industrial average plunged to 9,955, its first close below 10,000 since 2004.
  38. 2009 Tuesday: After searching for the scumbag since 1994, the authorities capture one of the Rwandan Genocide’s most heinous characters- Ildéphonse Nizeyamana lurking in Kampala, Uganda’s capital.  The International Criminal Court for Rwanda has been looking for this murderous Hutu POS.

  43. 2014 Monday: The U.S. Supreme Court unexpectedly cleared the way for a dramatic (and unnecessary) expansion of gay marriage in the United States as it rejected appeals from five states seeking to preserve their bans, effectively making such marriages legal in 30 states.  Note: there is NOTHING in the Constitution regarding marriage so this should be overturned.  Meanwhile, U.S. Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps received six-month suspension from sponsor organization USA Swimming due to a recent drunk driving charge; Phelps plans to enter a treatment program.
  44. 2015 Tuesday: New reports surface that Hillary Clinton’s private email server- the one in her basement near the crapper that stored up to 55,000 pages of confidential documents during her time as secretary of state underwent more assaults than previously suspected and/or confirmed.  Additional attacks came from communist China (say it ain’t so!), Germany, and South Korea.  Hillary said only information on her Pilates training and daughter Chelsea’s wedding were on that acid-washed and bleach-bitted server.  Uh, okay.
  45. 2016 Thursday: According to CBS News, reports say that the markets believe that ‘IF Donald J. Trump wins the White House in three weeks, the markets will tank whereas if Hillary Clinton should win the election, everything will be peachy keen.  Uh, okay.   Meanwhile as Hurricane Matthew continues making landfall along the coastlines of Florida, Georgia, and the Carolinas, at least 300,000 homes and businesses are without power and 2 million or more are trying to escape the affected regions. 
  46. 2017 Friday: The board of directors of the Weinstein Company said movie mogul Harvey Weinstein was on indefinite leave the company he founded amid countless sexual harassment allegations made against him and the subsequent internal investigations into the worthless POS.  Note- Mr. Weinstein is a lifelong Democrat- BA-BOOM!  Meanwhile, new NHL franchise the Las Vegas Golden Knights wins their first-ever game, an away victory to the Dallas Stars, 2-1.  Congratulations!
  47. 2018 Saturday: After one of the most harrowing confirmations in recent memory, Brett Kavanaugh, following a 50-48 vote in the U.S. Senate, took his place on the Supreme Court of the United States as its 114th associate justice.  Elsewhere, due to the Palestinians being a persistent pain in the ass to Israel as they screech and protest along the border, Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman announces to the citizens of the Gaza Strip that the fishing zone off the coast will be reduced from 9 to 6 nautical miles.
  48. 2019 Sunday: Two rock stars died on this date: first, famed drummer Ginger Baker of Cream[iv], died in Canterbury, Kent, England, on this date.  He had entered the hospital on 09-25-2019.  Next, longtime bassist with the Southern rock band, .38-Special[v], Larry Junstrom, died on this date in Palatka, Florida, at age 70.   Elsewhere, a human rights report says that in Iraq, protests over rampant government corruption, rising unemployment, and poor living conditions over the past five days that 100 people have been slain and at least 4,000 injured.  Sever your ties with Iran and you would do better.   Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of Hong Kong freedom fighters take to the streets to protest the newly imposed ban on wearing face masks at protests.
  49. 2020 Tuesday:  A House committee recommends the bust-up of the BIG TECH companies which cannot come soon enough.  As everyone knows, Google CEO Sundar Pichai discriminates against conservative voices.  We hope the U.S. government would strip him of citizenship and deport him back to Punjabistan, his family included.  Elsewhere in government, the U.S. Department of Justice announced today that there are ‘no COVID-19 exemptions in the U.S. Constitution that allows dictatorial governors and mayors (Gretchen Whitmer- are YOU listening?) to shutter all of society.  Henceforth, all such actions must cease.  Meanwhile, the Department of Transportation booted a union demand four making the wearing of masks without exception.  We must remember that early in the Chi-Vi Storm, doctors such as Tony Fauci said that masks did no good when it comes to battling a virus.  Then, all of a sudden, wearing masks and possibly goggles- as Dr. Fauci suggested- became the norm. 
  50. 2020 Tuesday A: A recent Axios-Ipsos poll suggests that minds have not changed with President Donald J. Trump coming down with the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Speaking of the Kung Flu, the World Health Organization reports that 1-in-10 are COVID-19-infected around the globe.  Moving on, CNN dimwit Chris Cuomo calls President Trump’s bout of the Chi-Vi and subsequent return to the White House a ‘publicity stunt’ while his appearance on the Truman Balcony at the White House in which, he waved to supporters and news media professionals on site as somehow being akin to Benito Mussolini speaking to adoring crowds from the Palazzo Venezia.  Uh, okay.   Regarding the Chinese Virus, the White House is bucking strict guidelines for emergency release of COVID-19 vaccine; so, says the New York Times.  Regarding government, a desperate Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, flipflops on recent Wuhan Virus Crisis comments saying that “REMOTE VOTING in the case of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to replace the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg is not right.’  Prior to this comment, he was all for remote meetings and attendance in the world’s (so-called) greatest deliberative body.’  For senators ill with COVID-19, attend sessions in full Hazmat suits.
  51. 2020 Tuesday B: Recent polls now report that “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s lead over President Donald J. Trump has now become an insurmountable 16 points.  Wow.  It’s all over!  Yeah, right.  Friends, we are more determined than ever to show up at polling places in person and to send these Beijing-loving leftists into the next dimension.  Meanwhile, the world’s ‘most beloved pontiff’- Pope Francis- announces that capitalism has failed, and that collectivism is the only way forward, due to the Chi-Vi encircling the world.  Friends, this is reason enough to hope that the next pope will be from European stock and not that of the flipping Third World.  Catholics here at the blog wish he would step down and return to Argentina.   Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms ‘warn the United States not to cross any of their red lines’ as though we should be afraid.  After the attack on Indian troops earlier in the year in the Himalayas, the Indian army returned and kicked ass on the communist Chinese, reclaiming their territory.   
  52. 2020 Tuesday C: In Santa Monica, California, fiery lead guitarist with Van Halen- Eddie Van Halen- is dead at age 65 from a losing battle with long-term throat cancer.  Add another member to Rock-and-Roll Heaven on this date.  He died in Santa Monica, California.   Elsewhere, following the second highest officer of the U.S. Coast Guard testing positive for the Wuhan Flu, the Joint Chiefs of Staff enter 14 days of self-isolation.
  53. 2020 Tuesday D: Here are today’s Chi-Com Horseshoe Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 35,511,291 confirmed cases, UP by 172,166 cases, 1,044,090 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,370 deaths, and 24,770,288 confirmed recoveries, UP by 198,979 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 7,553,392 confirmed cases, UP by 8,727 new cases, 213,462 confirmed deaths, UP by 87 new deaths, and 4,905,362 confirmed recoveries, UP by 2,573 new recoveries.
  54. 2020 Tuesday E: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 838,956 confirmed cases, 16,205 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 13,007 confirmed cases, 157 confirmed deaths, and 10,470 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 94,275 confirmed cases, 2,254 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, Montana: 15,633 confirmed number of cases, 192 confirmed number of deaths, and 10,172 confirmed number of recoveries.  Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there.  Here they are: 272,309 confirmed cases, 1,757 confirmed deaths, and 204,355 confirmed recoveries.  Watch out for car bombs or Hamas thugs coming up out of the sewers and kidnapping you or your lovely wife. 
  55. 2020 Tuesday F: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,772.76, DOWN 375.88 points (-1.34%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,154.60, DOWN 177.88 points (-1.57%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,360.95, DOWN 47.68 points (-1.40%).  The price of GOLD is $1,883.10 per troy oz., -25.70 (-1.35%) while the price of SILVER is $23.26 per troy ounce, -0.656 (-2.74%).  The price of PLATINUM is $860.00 per troy oz, -10.30 (-1.18%) while the price of COPPER is $2.93 per pound, -0.033 (-1.11%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,350.00 per troy oz., -9.10 (-0.40%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $39.86 per barrel, -0.81 (-1.99%).  Today, COCOA is $2,449.00 per metric ton, +21.00 (+0.86).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.79 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.85 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency, a known fact which is why the world must disengage with them and bring our supply chain home- ASAP.
  56. 2020 Tuesday G: Tomorrow night is the debate between Vice President Michael Pence and Senator Kamala Harris.  Should be better than last week’s slugfest but then…one never knows…meanwhile, Democrat charges of the day against President Donald J. Trump: ‘he’s like Mussolini, he’s a super-spreader of the Chi-Vi even though news media hacks have been captured off-camera stripping the masks off their faces.
  57. 2020 Tuesday H: Today, Greg Kelly on Newsmax reports the Trump-Russia Collusion HOAX was a creation of the Hillary Rodham Clinton campaign.  Today, DNI John Ratcliffe declassifies notes compiled by then-CIA Director John Brennan from a meeting at the Obama White House in 2016 in which, President Obama, then-National Security Adviser Susan Rice, Dennis McDonough, the chief of staff, and others, in which, Brennan was informing President Obama about a plan hatched by one of Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy advisors on July 28, 2016, in which, Democrats would claim interference by Russian security services on behalf of then- candidate Donald J. Trump with which to dirty him and to push Hillary across the finish line in November 2016.
  58. 2020 Tuesday I: Not sure what else the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party gofers are up to stick around today so and find out.  Update: White House adviser Stephen Miller becomes the 11th person to test positive for the Chi-Vi.  Meanwhile, Puerto Rico Governor Wanda Vázquez Garced urged her citizens to vote for President Donald J. Trump, that the 45th president is their best friend.  Elsewhere, Hurricane Delta picks up steam and becomes a Cat 4 storm what with 130 mph winds.  It is expected to sweep across the Yucatan and then descend on the U.S. gulf coast, possibly New Orleans- yet again. 
  59. 2020 Tuesday J:  We reported earlier in the day the death of Eddie Van Halen.  Singer Johnny Nash died at age 80.  Known for hits like “I Can See Clearly Now” and “Rock Me Baby,” and “(What A) Wonderful World,” he died in his hometown of Houston, Texas.  He continued releasing albums up until 1986 and compilations long after that.  Add another one to Rock-and-Roll Heaven. 
  60. 2021 Wednesday: The National League Wild Card playoff is tonight in Los Angeles, California, as the visiting St. Louis Cardinals (90-72) take on the L.A. Dodgers (106-56).  Last night, the New York Yankees (92-70) went to Boston and took on the Red Sox (92-70) and lost by a final score of 6-2.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The third album by Fairport Convention came out on July 03, 1969- “Unhalfbricking”- and demonstrated that the band was growing more confident with each release.  Although the band performs several Bob Dylan tunes, members such as Sandy Denny and Richard Thompson are now writing some glorious tunes.  The band features Sandy Denny (vocals, guitars, keyboards), Richard Thompson (guitars, vocals, and other stringed instruments), Simon Nichol (guitars, vocals), Ashley Hutchings (basses, jug), and Martin Lamble (drums, percussion, and violin).  This album marked a transition for the young band as prior to its release, drummer Martin Lamble and Richard Thompson’s girlfriend lost their lives in a tragic traffic accident.  It was one of those harsh events that alters a band’s trajectory.  We hope you will seek this album out, give it a good listen, and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure.  Compared to modern-day music, Fairport Convention beats all of it hands down every single time.

Question: are we going to swamp the polls or are we going to allow the Chi-Coms and their stooges in the Democratic Party and their bought-and-paid-for shock troops terrorize us into staying home?

  64. 2020 Thursday C: On the final day of the U.S. Supreme Court’s term, the high court handed down two decisions, both regarding President Donald J. Trump.  First, in Trump v. Vance (Manhattan D.A. Cyrus Vance Jr., a real Trump hater), the court ruled that the president does not have absolute immunity from all lawsuits, all nine justices agreeing on this point.  However, it was not an immediate win for D.A. Vance as he cannot see the tax documents he has been trying to see because it’s a political witch hunt sans any real need to see the tax returns.  In Trump v. Mazars, the court handed the president a tactical victory in that the House committee seeking to see his tax returns cannot go on a fishing expedition and must have a reason as to WHY they must see his tax returns.  We shall see with what the maggots in the House produce.  
  65. 2020 Thursday D: Meanwhile, U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan won’t let go of the now-destroyed case against Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn in that he is asking the federal appellate court to give the case another look.  WTF?  The Justice Dept. and federal prosecutors said to DROP the case because of the illegalities employed by the prosecution against the former national security advisor yet the crazed Judge Sullivan won’t let it go.  The guy is cruising for a future impeachment.

  58. 2020 Thursday: Seattle continues not knowing what to do with the communist Antifa and Black Lives Matter takeover of seven city blocks and renaming the area CHAZ.  There, they dispense justice while roaming the area with automatic weapons.  President Donald J. Trump says it must end soon.  Otherwise, the federal government will step in and end the left-wing insurrection by a bunch of wannabe Nazis.
  59. 2020 Thursday A: The Xi Jinping Bat Virus continues claiming lives and causing problems.  Here are the global stats for today: 7,487,676 confirmed cases, 420,236 confirmed deaths, and 3,523,386 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, here are the numbers thanks to collusion between the Chinese communists and the Democratic Party: 2,062,704 confirmed cases, 115,441 confirmed deaths, and 618,548 confirmed recoveries.  Next in the three states in which, the world-famous AICPENDBLOG.COM has chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 139,281 confirmed cases, 4,881 confirmed deaths, and as is the norm, no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, in Hawaii, here are the stats: 685 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 622 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the increasingly socialist republic of Washington where communists now seem to be running amok, here are the numbers: 24,759 confirmed cases, 1,194 confirmed deaths, but like California, no mention of confirmed recoveries.
  60. 2021 Friday:  Amazing how last year’s Chi-Vi stats pale in comparison to what we’ve seen a year later…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On November 07, 1977, Jethro Tull- at the behest of their record label obviously- released their second official ‘best of package,’ “Repeat the Best of Jethro Tull, Volume II” which featured slim pickings of 10 tracks not included on their first ‘best of’ package including an unreleased track with which to sweeten the deal for the fans.   If you have yet to introduce the music of this band to your ears, this is a good way in which one can do it just so long as you buy “M.U.- the Best of Jethro Tull,” and “Living in the Past” at the same time, too.  In that way, you are able to get a good selection of music with which to delight one’s auditory senses.  We hope you will seek it out by visiting whatever site it is you choose for the absolute best in rock music.  Remember this, however, with Amazon.com having become the POS company that it has, try shopping LOCAL

Trump.

  63. 2020 Saturday: More information continues coming to light about how the communist Chinese have been working on bat viruses for the past 15-20 years.  The question is WHY?  Some say it’s because of SARS which caused numerous deaths when it broke out a decade or so ago while others believe- us, too- that it is for biowarfare research.  Well, it appears that COVID-19 did manage to jailbreak the Wuhan Institute of Virology and away we go.  Now dictator for life Xi Jinping says he welcomes a W.H.O.-led investigation into the origin of the Wuhan Virus when it ends.  When it ends?  And the W.H.O.?  The World Health Organization does the bidding of Xi Jinping so why would anyone believe anything it or the communists in Beijing say?  Here are today’s stats, first for the globe: 5,288,392 confirmed cases, 340,875 confirmed deaths, and 2,102,557 confirmed recoveries the last of which gives us hope as the number of recoveries far outweighs deaths.
  64. 2020 Saturday A: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the United States: 1,656,906 confirmed cases, 97,414 confirmed deaths, and 334,452 confirmed recoveries.  Now, we head to the breakdown of the three states in which, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington state, California first: 90,631 confirmed cases, 3,708 confirmed deaths, but as usual, ZERO confirmed recoveries because Gov. Gavin Newsom continues playing politics.  He and his regime believe that IF they continue NOT publishing the number of recoveries, Californians will be afraid but next week when we begin seeing temperatures soar to over 100 degrees, people are going to disobey all governmental orders and edicts.  We won’t forget WHO is destroying the economy and It’s NOT President Donald J. Trump.  No, it’s Democrat governors.  Here are the stats for Hawaii: 647 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 579 confirmed recoveries.  Here at the statistics for Washington state: 19,265 confirmed cases, 1,050 confirmed deaths, and ZERO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Come on, Gov. Jay Inslee, release the true stats, you worthless POS.
  65. 2020 Saturday B: Our contacts in Hong Kong continue scoffing at the numbers put out by the communists in Beijing.  Communist China claims 82,974 confirmed cases, 4,634 confirmed deaths, and 78,261 confirmed recoveries while Hong Kong claims 1,066 confirmed cases, 4 confirmed deaths, and 1,029 confirmed recoveries.  Our sources claim the numbers for communist China are more like 780,000 confirmed cases, 400,000-plus deaths, and about 1,700,000 confirmed recoveries.  Thank you for the info, please stay safe, Hong Kong!  Free Hong Kong!  Free Macau!  Free Taiwan!  Free Tibet!  Free Mainland China!  Time to return to the Two-China Policy by which, we recognize Taiwan as the legitimate government of the mainland and the People’s Republic of China as a usurper government.  We must bring Taiwan back to the United Nations and restore their seat on the U.N. Security Council as it was before the communist takeover.  
  66. 2021 Sunday: As you know, we await the news of the day…stick around and discover the truth…

  74. 2020 Thursday A: Here are the global statistics for the Chinese Virus- aka COVID-19, aka the Kung Flu, aka the Wuhan Virus Crisis- for today: 5,014,943 confirmed number of cases, 328,462 confirmed number of deaths, but 1,909,701 number of confirmed recoveries.   Here are the figures for the United States: 1,604,862 confirmed number of cases, 94,965 confirmed number of deaths, but 306,171 number of confirmed recoveries which is great.  In the three states in which, the AICPENDBLOG.COM has chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, California first: 84,057 confirmed number of cases, 3,436 confirmed number of deaths, but typical of ultra-left-wing states, ZERO mention of the number of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for Hawaii: 643 confirmed number of cases, 17 confirmed number of deaths, but 578 number of confirmed recoveries which is extraordinary.  Finally, in the once-proud but now socialist-liberal hellhole, Washington, here are the stats: 18,971 confirmed number of cases, 1,037 confirmed number of deaths, but like California, no reported number of confirmed recoveries which tells you all you need to know about the regime running Olympia.
  75. 2020 Thursday B: As far as COVID-19 numbers go, communist China has changed their numbers somewhat.  Here are their current figures: 82,967 confirmed number of cases, 4,634 confirmed number of deaths, but 78,249 number of confirmed recoveries.   Sources in still-free Hong Kong report the number of cases to be well over one million, that the death toll approaches 750,000, with the number of recoveries being unclear.  Free Hong Kong!  Free Tibet!  Free Macau!  Free Taiwan via making them a separate nation once again with their own seat in the United Nations.  Enough is enough with indulging the Chinese Communist Party, let’s return to the Two-China Policy!  It is interesting to note that Beijing is now trying to crack down on Hong Kong’s independence while the rest of the world is fighting Wuhan’s biowarfare.  We shall see.
  76. 2021 Friday: Folks, you know the drill- stick around to discover whatever the heck the Democrats, the Chi-Coms, even the Canadians are doing to mess up our country- you know you want to know as badly as we do…

  68. 2016 Friday: Mayor Boris Johnson of London is peeved with U.S. President Barack Obama.  The 44th president has this effect on people.  Regarding Brexit, Mayor BoJo, also a member of the British Cabinet, says of President Obama that he is both ‘hypocritical and inconsistent’ in putting in his two cents regarding the desire of the British people to undergo Brexit.  What right does the Bamster have telling another country- especially our oldest ally- to NOT do something.

  79. 2021 Thursday F: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE- a new report hit the news cycle today suggesting that Health and Human Services, an agency headed by Secretary Xavier Becerra, a man who never met an illegal alien he did not want to protect or a baby to abort, is paying travel expenses for (NAMBLA) and other groups to come pick up illegal alien brats and then take them elsewhere in the country.  Shady foster care services are making BIG BUCKS right now caring for illegal alien minors.  Meanwhile, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey, RINO, calls Joe Biden on the spot demanding that the feeble old coot declare a “CRISIS” along the southern border.  Speaking of calling a ‘crisis’ a ‘crisis,’ Politico has forbidden its employees from labeling the southern border crisis a ‘crisis.’  Sad.  (Note- Congressman Andy Biggs, R-AZ 5th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden won’t visit the border so he won’t be forced into acknowledging we have a BORDER CRISIS.’   In other border news, Congresswoman Lisa McClain, R-MI 10th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden is aiding the Mexican drug cartels by taking the illegal alien kids and distributing them across the country.’  Can we stop doing this, Joe?   Congressman Darrell Issa, R-CA 50th congressional district, points out that resistance in Arizona to mass illegal alien invasion shows there are problems in the White House.
  80. 2021 Thursday G: EARTH DAY CLIMATE COMMUNISM NEWS- Conservative commentators with the balls to call out Joe Biden point out that his so-called ‘climate summit’ is little more than a gift to the Chi-Coms who will agree to anything and then forge ahead with their plans.  Who can blame them?  Since it’s ‘Earth Day,’ Joe Biden rolls out sweeping new climate goals that are little more than open doorways for communism to consume both the country and the world.  Thanks, Joe.   Speaking of our drooling commander-in-chief, Climate Change protesters pushed pink wheelbarrows full of steer manure through the streets of Washington, D.C. and dumped them out in front of the White House.  They claim Old Joe is full of s**t.  Wow.  Meanwhile, it’s another Earth Day so it’s another opportunity for angry teenager Greta Thunberg to lambaste the world’s politicians once again.  Young lady, why don’t you row your boat to Beijing and tell comrade Xi Jinping how HE is responsible for f**king up the world?  You might find yourself vacationing in Xinjiang Province.   
  81. 2021 Thursday H: JOE BIDEN NEWS I- In an interesting turn of events, Joe Biden is expected to call the ‘Armenian Genocide’ the ‘Armenian Genocide.’  This is going to drive the Turks berserk.  F**k them.  Meanwhile, Joe Biden is talking about raising the capital gains tax to 39.6-to-43.3-percent which collapsed the stock markets today (see Thursday 2021 D) and will kill all further business development and progress.  Thanks, Joe, thanks.  Next, “Kooky Kamala” Harris is set to speak with Guatemalan officials on Monday, seeking ways to ‘fix’ the ongoing illegal alien crisis.
  82. 2021 Thursday I: POLITICAL NEWS I- Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, says he ‘won’t budge on the Senate filibuster.’  Next, Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, is going to visit Iowa on June 29, 2021, to help fellow GOP politicians in election bids.  Some believe this is testing the waters for a run in 2024, something with which, we don’t concur.  Moving on, the U.S. House of Representatives approved a bill that would make Washington, D.C., a state, something the U.S. Constitution expressly forbids.  It moves onto the U.S. Senate.
  83. 2021 Thursday J: CRIME AND PUNISHMENT NEWS- Governor J. Kevin Stitt, R-OK, signed a pair of bills into law today that protect motorists from ‘protesters.’  Not long after he did that, there was an INSURRECTION in the State House in which, a bunch of BLM supporters stormed the building and had to be tossed out on their butts by security.  Excellent.   Next, the POS Islamist from Syria[xix], let in on the refugee program under President Barack Hussein Obama who shot up the King Soopers in Boulder, Colorado, is being charged with having a high-capacity magazine.  Say it ain’t so!  Next, Columbus, Ohio, following the death of a 16-year-old Ma’ Khia Bryant was shot dead by a police officer yesterday as she was in the act of stabbing another young girl, protests and riots are occurring in the city, especially after troglodyte LeBron “Fecal Matter” James poured gasoline all over the fire yesterday with a threatening tweet against the officer involved in the action.  Look, when you are threatening someone with an 8-eight-inch blade and you are overheard saying, “I’M GOING TO STAB THE F**K OUT OF YOU, BITCH,” was the officer supposed to stand aside and watch the deed done?  Enough with this bulls**t.  Moving on, Tucker Carlson reported tonight on his Fox News Channel program that SEXUAL ASSAULTS in New York City this past couple of months are UP by…get this…322-percent.  Gee whiz.  WTF is Mayor Bill “The Blank” Di Blasio doing to halt this horrendous sexual crime wave?  Nothing.  Finally, the POS Bangladeshi that tried to carry out a suicide bombing in the Times Square subway station received a life term in federal prison today.   
  84. 2021 Thursday K: SUPREME COURT NEWS- On a 6-3 vote, the U.S. Supreme Court rejects limits imposed on life sentences for juveniles.  This led to Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor slamming her fellow justices- but Brett Kavanaugh in particular- noting that the newer justices are willing to overturn precedent extremely easy.   Speaking of liberals, Democrats are demanding (don’t they always) that Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett recuse herself from a donor privacy case.  C’mon, Dems NEVER recuse themselves from anything.   Speaking of the nation’s high court, GOP senators are speaking out against the Democratic Party’s twisted scheme of packing the court.[xx]
  85. 2021 Thursday L: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS- The Department of Homeland Security reveals yet another cybersecurity hack into U.S. systems, blaming the Russkies when everyone knows it’s the Chi-Coms doing the evil deeds.  Next, the U.S. Senate passes a bill making it a crime to practice Asian Hate.  Folks, the Dems must tell the BLACK DEMOCRATS to stop attacking the ASIAN DEMOCRATS.  Everyone knows what has been going on, black Americans assaulting Asian Americans and for what?  Did the Dems mobilize their shock troops to commit these heinous acts?  We think so.  Next, former aide to former Governor Chris “Krispy Kreme” Christie, Bridget Kelly, says the ‘big oaf is unfit to ever become president.’  He engineered ‘Bridgegate’ and Ms. Kelly underwent two criminal trials, was facing prison until the Supreme Court tossed this bogus case.   Elsewhere, Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, is scheduled to give the rebuttal to Joe Biden’s upcoming ‘address’ to a joint session of Congress. 
  86. 2021 Thursday M: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS I- Late last night, the so-called ‘religion of peace’ (you know of whom we speak) carried out a suicide car-bombing outside a luxury hotel in Quetta, Pakistan.  The resulting explosion killed four and wounded at least 11.  Supposedly, the Chi-Com ambassador was on site so no one knows for sure whether he was the target or it was just another day at the office for the jihadists.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, is putting forth a bill designed to crack down on People’s Republic of China infiltrating our institutions of higher learning.  Good.  Next, Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, slams the enfeebled Joe Biden over his crackpot plans for rejoining with the Iranians in the deeply flawed JCPOA.   Moving on, Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador suggests the U.S. could give eventual U.S. citizenship for illegal aliens willing to plant trees.  How about they plant them in YOUR country?).
  87. 2021 Thursday N: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS II- A new report suggests that the Russians are suspected of launching directed energy attacks on U.S. military personnel.  Okay, uh, when claims of Vladimir Putin placing bounties atop the heads of U.S. soldiers led to demands that President Donald J. Trump go to war with the Russkies, how come the very same voices aren’t demanding that Joe Biden go to war?  Speaking of the Russians, it appears they have blinked and have pulled their forces back from the eastern border of Ukraine.  Wow.  Joe scared them?  In other ‘foreign news,’ a team of scientists are urging Congress to release more information on UFOs after one incident comes to light in which, a UFO going along at 120 miles per hour over Puerto Rico suddenly splits in two and heads off in different directions.  Folks, we have a problem on this planet.  What are we going to do about it?  (Note- this incident occurred back in 2013 so why are we just hearing about it now?)  Finally, at the upcoming meeting of House Republicans, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says that President Donald J. Trump WON’T be addressing the group.

ENDNOTES:


[i] Folks, we are the only site with the balls to point out that Earth Day is little more than a surreptitious way with which to shove communism down our throats with a smiley face attached to it (look at that angry little dingbat Greta Thunberg, that girl needs to get a life).  When you consider all the things the Earth has been through, through the Industrial Age through numerous wars in which millions of bombs were dropped, fired, or set off, i.e., high explosive, poison gas, white phosphorous, and incendiaries, just as the number of nuclear tests below ground, on ground, in the atmosphere, or in the depths of the ocean and the planet is still here.  We’re not saying any of this is or has been good; no, what we are saying is that the planet has amazing recuperative powers and as long as we maintain the health of our oceans, rivers, lakes, streams, and ponds just as we keep the air clean, our planet is going to continue to survive.  Please, let us stop making more Greta Thunberg-like crazed lunatics, no more AOC and others of her squad, let’s set these dimwits straight and let’s work toward the maintenance of a clean environment and towards nuclear power for all.  Likewise, we know hydrogen burned as fuel provides water vapor so what happened to fueling our vehicles with hydrogen?  It’s all about CONTROL.  CONTROL of you, me, of everyone and everything so dimwits like John Kerry and the rest of the Green Regime can live in luxury and style.  We say, “FUCK THEM!  FUCK EARTH DAY!  FUCK EVERY LITTLE PANSY WHO SNIVELS AND WHINES THE PLANET IS DYING.”  Stupid fucks.  

[ii] We hope to promote the music of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, as well as of each member’s solo careers along with Crazy Horse within the next 5-7 years.  Please remain vigilant for when we do.

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

[iv] We promoted the music of a group of interconnected venerable British rock bands 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.

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

[vi] Martin Windrow’s superb book, “The Last Valley,” Da Capo Press 2006 as well as Time-Life Books excellent series on the Vietnam War serve as the main sources for this historic battle.

[vii] Alas, if only that indoctrinated moron Greta Thunberg was alive back then!  She would have been the center of attention.

[viii] 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. 

[ix] We look forward to promoting the music of Edwin Starr one day along with Richie Havens and other famed soul (and folk) singers like Richie Havens.

[xx] It’s important to note that the Dems have a secondary plan with which to achieve the rulings they seek and that is the constant threat of packing the court.  In so doing, it forces the court to yield more Democrat-friendly rulings so the Dems WON’T pack the court.  NO one can ever trust the flipping Democrats.

91. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, APRIL 01, 2021

Meanwhile, in the Battle of Dien Bien Phu, the People’s Army is launching massive attacks against the French Union, French Legionnaires, and local troops along the east side of the camp. Huge artillery barrages precede human wave assaults where the communists spring out of trenches dug right up to the wire. The battles being fought around the hilltop Eliane 2 are fierce but the French trade their shrinking perimeters for a high cost in communist blood.

  25. 1916 Saturday: The first U.S. national women’s swimming championships took place on this date.  Meanwhile, on the Western Front during World War I, the Germans are battling to control the ground surrounding Verdun, one of the all-time worst meatgrinder battles.  Both the French and Germans are throwing everything they have into a swift victory which eludes both powers.
  26. 1917 Sunday: During World War I, the Russians are pushing towards Bagdad with the Ottoman Turks in headlong retreat.  The ‘Sick Man of Europe,’ the Ottomans because they have been in decline for so long are battling to hold onto Palestine as well as to prevent a Russian invasion from the north and east (not that the Russians are doing all that well- in a few more months, the Bolshevik Revolution would knock them out of the fight).
  27. 1918 Monday: With Russia embroiled in the civil war between the Reds and the Whites, the Germans continue pummeling them for concessions on all manner of things.  Today, they give Moscow an ultimatum as parts of the new Soviet Union break apart.  Give Finland their freedom or we will continue operations against you.  The Kaiser’s Germany and the Finns have a history.

  36. 1940 Monday: The Soviet NKVD- the secret police- begin trucking captured Polish officers into the Katyn Forest where they will soon begin machine-gunning them to death, at least 22,000 Polish officers and intelligentsia, people the Soviets view as impediments to them forcing communism onto the conquered portion of the nation they control.
  37. 1941 Tuesday: Pro-German Rashid Ali al-Ghailani grabs power in Iraq.  Angry at their occupation by the Brits, the “Golden Square,” the movement to oust the British gets underway.  At first, the British would be surprised and overrun but within a few days would be able to recover and strike back.  Meanwhile, in North Africa, following their costly defeat at El Agheila, the British are falling back in headlong retreat across the coastal road.  Is the road for the Axis to Egypt WIDE OPEN?  Meanwhile, German troops are moving towards the Yugoslav border.  They have a date with the Yugoslav people…
  38. 1942 Wednesday: The Japanese army continues the conquest of Burma, pushing the British back in one concentrated assault after another.  Meanwhile, in the Mediterranean Sea theater, the Luftwaffe continues smothering the island fortress of Malta with sortie after sortie of bombers, attacking ships, military targets, and civilian towns and cities.  Still, the people of Malta won’t submit to the Nazis and their Fascist Italian henchmen.
  39. 1943 Thursday: Craig “Stinkbug” Carrici was born in Pumpkin Center,[i] California, on this date; he is the founder of the AICP-END Blog.  Elsewhere, in the North African Theater of World War II, the British, the Americans, and the Free French and Free Poles continue pushing the Afrika Korps into an ever-shrinking corner of Tunisia.  As long as the Axis troops can continue the fight, they can keep Allied assets tied up there instead of being redeployed to other fronts.  Still, the end is coming and it’s coming soon.
  40. 1944 Saturday: John Barbata, future drummer of the Turtles[ii], the Jefferson Airplane[iii], the Jefferson Starship, and Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young[iv] was born on this date in Passaic, New Jersey.   Elsewhere, during the air war over occupied Europe, a grave error occurs today as 50 B-24 bombers flew into Switzerland’s airspace and bombed the wrong target, killing at least 40 or more civilians.  Pilots shot down over Switzerland of all sides were typically interned there until the end of the war and the Swiss were not big fans of the Allies, the United States in particular.  This mistake did not help things between the two countries.
  41. 1945 Sunday: American forces launched the amphibious invasion of Okinawa during World War II.  This would prove to be one of the costliest fights of World War II and the catastrophic loss of life on both sides would press President Harry S.

  48. 1954 Thursday: The U.S. Air Force Academy forms on this date.  Elsewhere, future rock-and-roll drummer, Jeff Porcaro, who would play with Steely Dan[vii], Toto[viii], and others—was born in South Windsor, Connecticut, on this date.   Meanwhile, in the Battle of Dien Bien Phu, the People’s Army is launching massive attacks against the French Union, French Legionnaires, and local troops along the east side of the camp.  Huge artillery barrages precede human wave assaults where the communists spring out of trenches dug right up to the wire.  The battles being fought around the hilltop Eliane 2 are fierce but the French trade their shrinking perimeters for a high cost in communist blood.  Some of the French forces are beginning to weaken and Lt. Colonel “Gars Pierre” Langlais informs his command to cut the Thai auxiliaries loose.  No longer are they dependable.[ix]
  49. 1960 Friday: The United States launched TIROS-1, the nation’s first weather satellite on this date.
  50. 1961 Saturday: Evangelist Jim Bakker marries Tammy Faye.

  58. 1982 Thursday: The U.S. transferred the Canal Zone to Panama.
  59. 1983 Friday: Tens of thousands of anti-nuclear demonstrators linked arms in a 14-mile human chain spanning three defense installations in rural England, including the Greenham Common U.S. Air Base.
  60. 1991 Monday: After five years of holding British citizen Roger Cooper hostage, the scumbag Islamist regime in Iran released him.  Meanwhile here in the United States, the Supreme Court ruled that attorneys could not bar jurors from serving due to their race.  Finally, with the ongoing collapse of the Soviet Union, the Warsaw Pact disbanded. 
  61. 1992 Wednesday: The National Hockey League’s Players’ Association went on it’s first-ever strike, which lasted 10 days.  Elsewhere, the world’s 7 wealthiest nations agree on $24 billion aid for former U.S.S.R.

  63. 2000 Saturday: The 2000 United States Census is underway as of today.
  64. 2001 Sunday: George W.

  65. 2002 Monday: Palestinians continue causing problems for the Israelis and fighting between terrorists and Israeli Defense Forces continues.  Gradually, Israeli troops are pushing the rabid jihadists towards the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem where the human garbage will seek refuge from an Israeli ass-whooping.  
  66. 2003 Tuesday: American troops entered a hospital in Nasiriyah, Iraq, and rescued Army Pfc. Jessica Lynch, who had been held prisoner since jihadists ambushed her supply column on March 23.
  67. 2004 Thursday: Suffering from the effects of kidney and liver disease, Paul Atkinson—guitarist with the British rock band, the Zombies[x]—loses his fight with his maladies and dies in a hospital in Santa Monica, California; he was 58-years-old.
  68. 2005 Friday: Hamas and Islamic Jihad have announced that they are considering- in principle- of joining the Palestine Liberation Organization.
  69. 2006 Saturday: White House Press Secretary Tony Snow announces that the administration is concerned over news of a potential toppling of the Lebanese government  by a cabal of Syria, Iran, and Hamas forces.  Of course, it appears that the Bush administration is searching for yet another opportunity to launch a new regime change war in the Middle East, ostensibly to help an ‘ally,’ Beirut.
  70. 2007 Sunday: Former United States Health and Human Services Secretary Tommy Thompson, Republican, throws his hat into the 2008 Presidential Election race. 
  71. 2008 Tuesday: While the Dalai Lama is visiting India, his hosts request that he not anger neighboring communist China.  India is unclear of its military abilities should the Chi-Coms begin launching attacks along their joint border. 
  72. 2009 Wednesday: In St. Petersburg, Russia, some anti-communist wag partially toppled a statue of Vladimir Lenin at the railway station with a bomb.  Police are seeking the suspect.   Meanwhile, the U.S. and Russia commence talks on a new Strategic Arms Limitations Treaty. 
  73. 2010 Thursday: Russian President Dmitry Medvedev- Vladimir Putin’s puppet- makes a surprise visit to Dagestan following a double suicide attack the day before that killed at least 12 people and wounded numerous others.  Meanwhile, former Alaskan Governor and vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin gives a speech in Nevada to tens of thousands of people seeking to get Senator Harry Reid, D-NV, out of office.
  74. 2011 Friday: Off the coast of Greece, Crete suffers a 6.2-magnitude earthquake.  Elsewhere, across the Near and Middle East, the Arab Spring continues as nations from the Persian Gulf to the end of North Africa at the Atlantic Ocean continue to see people running amok, trying to topple governments and murder leaders.  It’s akin to watching global insanity among members of the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam.
  75. 2012 Sunday: In Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood nominates Chairman Khairat El-Shater as a candidate for the May 2012 presidential elections.  Meanwhile, as the Syrian civil war continues to rage, Syrian military assets and artillery begin assaulting the city of Homs where a bunch of antigovernment and perhaps even ISIS thugs are holed up.  Wipe ‘em out, boys.
  76. 2013 Monday: In preparation for plans to step down in 2015, the president of Sudan Omar al-Bashar gives an order to release all political prisoners.  Elsewhere, in North Korea, at the annual convening of the People’s Supreme Assembly, their version of a parliament, begins after Kim Jong Un finished leveling threats of thermonuclear war against BOTH South Korea and the United States.  Fine people do something about it, President Barack Hussein Obama.
  77. 2014 Tuesday:  Fifty-eight miles north of the Chilean city of Iquique, an earthquake of 8.2 magnitude hits the area, stunning the region.  An earlier earthquake that hit on March 16 was 6.2-magnitude on the Richter scale; scientists predict an even bigger one soon.  Meanwhile, thanks to Russian land-grabs in the Crimea, NATO cancels all civil and military cooperation with Vladimir Putin’s Russia.  We’re sure they’re upset.  Elsewhere, the death toll in the West African nation of Guinea from its ongoing Ebola virus outbreak is now at 80 dead with possibly dozens sickened.
  78. 2015 Wednesday: Following problems with reaching a self-imposed reduction in water usage in drought-stricken California, Democrat Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown mandates a 25-percent reduction under threat of legal punishment to force lower usage of the precious resource.  Meanwhile, the governor-fearful of rising sea levels, continues to allow millions of acre-feet of water to flow out into the Pacific Ocean to protect the Delta smelt.  Impeach the bastard!  Elsewhere, famed British guitarist Dave Ball who played with Procol Harum died on this date in his native England; he was 65 years-old.
  79. 2016 Friday: At the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California, the Golden State Warriors’ NBA record for home game wins ends as the Boston Celtics beat them, 109-106; it was the team’s first loss at home since January 2015.  Elsewhere, as world leaders convene in Washington, D.C., at the annual Nuclear Security Summit, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un gives them something on which to chew: he fires off a couple of missiles from the east coast of his s***hole country and into the ocean.  “Notice me,” appears to be the message.
  80. 2017 Saturday: In Stockholm, Sweden, famed singer/songwriter Bob Dylan wins his Nobel Peace Prize for Literature in a private ceremony.  God bless you, Bob.   Meanwhile, the government of Communist China announces its plan to build a city three-times the size of New York City (using American money, of course, purloined from us via disastrous past trade ‘deals’) in Xlongan, a new area.  Three years later, they spread the Wuhan Flu to the rest of the world.  Thank you, China, thank you.
  81. 2018 Sunday: In the 37th NCAA Women’s Basketball Championship, a stunner of a game occurs as Notre Dame beats Mississippi State by a final of 61-58 what with ND forward Jessica Shepard scoring 19 points.  Elsewhere, combined U.S. and South Korean forces commence their annual military drills, codenamed “Foal Eagle” and “Key Resolve.”  Of course, North Korean strongman, Kim Jong Un, is unhappy with the drills.
  82. 2019 Monday: China announces new laws to take effect on May 01, 2019, to stop the production of fentanyl-related opiates.  Okay.  China is the number one provider of opiates to the United States, being the ‘unseen hand’ distributing harmful drugs to Americans and causing far too many to die from them.  Shame.  Elsewhere, we learn that Saudi ARAMCO is the most profitable company in the world what with $111.1 billion in the previous year.    
  83. 2020 Wednesday: China continues being a major problem for the rest of the globe as the Wuhan Flu continues wreaking havoc wherever it shows up- with the strange exception of China (or so they claim)- with total number of confirmed cases at or near 911,308 and total number of confirmed deaths at 45,497.  We now know, however, that China has concealed- intentionally- the number of confirmed cases and number of confirmed deaths within their country so who the heck can believe anything these totalitarians claim?  The U.S. number of confirmed cases is closing in at 213,000 with 47,000 or so confirmed deaths.  This is outrageous, yet in China, the infamous WET MARKETS are open once more so the populace can enjoy their bat, rat, cat, dog, monkey, snakes, lizards, insects, and other exotic and endangered animals on their dinner table.  Shame!  World beware of the Wuhan Boogie Woogie!
  84. 2021 Thursday: Stick around to discover what the communists are up to today…

We are five weeks away from learning whom the winner of the Third Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award is going to be and boy, do we have a list of nominees this year

The Soviets were simple- if you rated the death sentence, you got ‘lead to the back of the head;’ otherwise, you went to the gulags where you wished you got lead to the back of the head. Many times, Beria served as a personal executioner for Stalin, went down into the infamous bowels of the Lubyanka in Moscow, the one in which, he met his own fate, and did the honors himself. He took pride in dispatching ‘enemies of the state’ in the same way he took pride in defiling the wives and daughters of those whom he sent to the gulags.

“We are five weeks away from learning whom the winner of the Third Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award is going to be and boy, do we have a list of nominees this year” by Working Chef Roland Carl Davis, ACF-CWC

FALL SESSION 2020

BLOG POST #3,684 AT THE AICP-END

ELECTION DAY 2020 PLUS TWENTY-EIGHT

Today, we begin our discussion of the Third Lavrentiy Beria Award, what it means, and who our nominees are…

Arvin, CA 93203, 12-01-2020 Tuesday:  Friends, this year marks the beginning of the Third Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award, given to the scumbag deserving of ‘lead to the back of the head’ in the time-honored Bolshevik manner of dispatching enemies of the state- humorously, of course– as we would never, I reiterate, NEVER advocate violence against anyone, anything, or any entity, living or not.  We do this as a lark, we do it for fun, which is why I am going to lay out this year’s nominees and the timeline for the presentation of the award as well as how we go about tabulating the winner.     

 This year, we have 1,234 voters in our pool and let me share with you some information as to who our voters are.  We have ourselves and our support personnel here at the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, as well as our families, their families, and extended family members, both here in the U.S. and even outside it.[i] 

In addition to those fine folks, we also have purveyors meaning sales personnel and their families, delivery drivers and their families, and various other sundry friends, co-workers, employees, even patrons and their families.  We try to have a diverse group of voters and since we began the award back in 2018, every year there are a few deaths but also new members added via marriage, employment, and the like.

The first semi-finals will fall on Thursday, December 17.  The second semi-finals will fall on December 24.  The third semi-finals will fall on Thursday, December 31.  The final round and the presentation of the award falls on Thursday, January 07, 2021. 

We would love to have a glorious, bright, shiny trophy to present to the winner of this prestigious award but until we have sufficient funds with which to create a memorable award and are able to award it in person to the deserving winner, we will do it here at the blog.  We definitely notify the winners that they have won this highly coveted award and will see if we can obtain some sort of comment, good, bad, or ugly. [ii]

The first award- 2018-2019 went to then-California Governor Jerry Brown and his sidekick, Attorney-General Xavier Becerra.  The Second Place Nadaraia and Sarkisian Award went to Antifa, and the third-place Red Banner Idols Award went to lawyer Michael Avenatti.  It was a tough year but Governor Brown and Attorney-General Xavier Becerra had it coming because of their mismanagement of the Golden State.  Little did we know that Gavin Newsom would do a worse job than those two dingleberries.  

The Second Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award 2019-2020 went to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.  The Second Place Nadaraia and Sarkisian Award went to Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib for being the rabid anti-Semite that she is while the Third Place Red Banner Idols Award went to Congressman Adam Schiff. 

Now, before I lay out this year’s nominees and say something about them, let me say this- most everyone who writes for the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day or helps us in the endeavor is right of center, some extremely so, while others are neocons, people like me who found reasons to gravitate to the right side of the aisle for whatever, albeit, mostly economic reasons. 

Even me, wavering over some issues of importance to me, understands WHY they nominate the people they do so only me and Chef Itzi remain on the left (as do numerous of our friends, family, co-workers, and employees) but WE are the ones- the 25 chef-authors- who do the actual nominating.  Yes, we have many hardcore liberals but you will notice that many of the nominees tend to be leftists themselves, although I will agree that many of them deserve to be on the nominees’ list.  I mean, Gavin Newsom, come on, folks, what a disappointment.[iii]

One final thing before we begin: Lavrentiy Beria was the long-time henchman of Soviet dictator Josef Stalin.  Stalin once said of Beria to German Foreign Minister Joaquim von Ribbentrop that ‘Beria is our Himmler.’ 

Beria did the dirty work, running the KGB and other state apparatuses of ‘law enforcement,’ intelligence-gathering, prison camps, punishment, executions, and death squads.  He served in this capacity until shortly after the death of Josef Stalin when his enemies deposed him and gave him the ‘Lavrentiy Beria treatment’- the dreaded bullet to the back of the head in the Lubyanka Prison.   

The Soviets were simple- if you rated the death sentence, you got ‘lead to the back of the head;’ otherwise, you went to the gulags where you wished you got lead to the back of the head.  Many times, Beria served as a personal executioner for Stalin, went down into the infamous bowels of the Lubyanka in Moscow, the one in which, he met his own fate, and did the honors himself.  He took pride in dispatching ‘enemies of the state’ in the same way he took pride in defiling the wives and daughters of those whom he sent to the gulags.

As for the Second Place Award- the Nadaraia and Sarkisian Award, these two men were Beria’s enablers, his chauffeur and body guard.  They also served as his pimps and if they saw young women or young girls on the streets, they scooped them up and returned them to their boss for his pleasure.  These two men were loathsome creatures and as such, their names are applied to the runner’s up award.  

Finally, the Third Place Award- the Red Banner Idols Award- goes to the person who comes in third.  These people are typically bottom of the barrel and as the least vote getter, they get little more than acknowledgment of third place such as that scumbag lawyer, Michael Avenatti back in January 2019.   

Friends, I ran over my time today so tomorrow we will begin going through the list of nominees.  I invite you to join me every day this week so that when the voting starts and the official recounting of the people making the draw arrives on December 17, 24, and 31 and then the BIG PRIZE is given on January 07, 2021, you will be aware of what is occurring.  Each chef-blogger each week will detail the votes.

Alas, I will see you tomorrow.  Please make sure you are here to join me and note- later in the week, we will discuss the alarming news about how it appears members of MY party have harmed our electoral system.  I don’t like Trump but I sure as heck do not want to see the entire country thrown atop the rubbish pile, set ablaze, and allowed to burn all because we don’t like the guy.  This is not good nor can we allow it to happen because once we go down that road, there is NO turning back.  

See you tomorrow.  God bless.

Savoy Brown continues rolling along and on September 09, 2009, the band released another studio effort, “Too Much of a Good Thing.” The lineup for this superlative studio effort consists of Kim Simmonds (guitars/vocals/harmonica/keyboards), Pat De Salvo (bass), Joe Whiting (vocals and saxophone), and Garnett Grimm (drums).  This album is a fine addition to the growing discography of the British blues band, which is why we urge everyone to embark on a digital journey to the world’s greatest online marketplace, Amazon.com.  When you arrive there, pick out the format, the condition, and the price that works best for you—you will be glad you did.

FOOTNOTES:


[i] We have friends and family across the entire country as well as friends and family living abroad.  We have folks living in South Korea, France, the UK, Canada, Germany, Belgium, even have some in Hong Kong (although contacting them is no longer as easy as it once was now that the Chi-Coms are cracking down).  We have friends in Australia, New Zealand, India, Japan, Thailand, the Philippines, Taiwan (suck on that one, Beijing), as well as in Mexico, Central America, even in South America, the Caribbean, and a few scattered across North Africa as well as Mo and Lu in Israel.  We run the gamut of countries as our friends and cohosts here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM who live in Hawaii have relatives spread across many of the countries of Asia and the Caribbean and our families continue growing every year, more than making up for the few losses we suffer.

[ii] Our fear is that they might take it seriously when it comes to ‘lead to the back of the head’ but hey, the folks on the LEFT (myself not included) don’t always seem to have a sense of humor which is strange because we used to be the party of free speech, of the best comedians, whereas now, things are somewhat stilted between the American people.  It does not have to be this way.

[iii] Please read my post from yesterday, my family and I have NO problem with COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions but when Sacramento allows riots, protests, arson, looting, and violence to occur on the streets of our cities as well as Sacramento politicians flouting the laws they impose on us, that is NOT right and they must be held to the same accountability as the rest of us meaning fines and possible imprisonment.  Otherwise, EVERY business in the state must hold a conclave and agree to reopen our businesses- big and small- on the exact same day.  There is NOTHING Sacramento could do to all of us and so long as we remain united, what can they do to us?  That is a story for another day, however; I hope I find time to address it before my week is over.

TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 07, 2020

FFF. 2016 Friday: In what the Washington Post believes is the silver bullet that is going to destroy the presidential campaign of businessman Donald J. Trump, they release a video in which, the New Yorker brags to Billy Bush on a segment of Entertainment Tonight in which, he explains that being ‘rich allows him to get away with groping and kissing women against their will.’ The comments were made about contestants in beauty contests in which, the real estate developer had part ownership. It did NOT destroy him.

  46. 1994 Friday: President Bill Clinton dispatched an aircraft carrier to the Persian Gulf when observers reported Iraqi troops moving towards Kuwait.  The President also placed the Army on alert.
  47. 1996 Monday: Fox News Channel much to the outrage of the liberal left made its debut on this date.
  48. 1998 Wednesday: The U.S. government filed an anti-trust suit that alleged Visa and Mastercard inhibit competition by preventing banks from offering other credit cards.  Elsewhere, gay college student Matthew Shepard was beaten and left tied to a wooden fencepost outside of Laramie, Wyoming; five days later, he died.  The authorities arrested Russell Henderson and Aaron McKinney who are serving life sentences for the brutal crime.
  49. 2001 Sunday: The current war in Afghanistan as the United States and Britain launched airstrikes against military targets and Osama bin Laden’s terrorist training camps in the wake of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.  Meanwhile, Barry Bonds, of the San Francisco Giants, hit his 73rd home run of the season, setting a new Major League Baseball record.
  50. 2003 Tuesday: In California, Arnold Schwarzenegger wins the governorship in the recall of Governor Gray Davis.  
  51. 2004 Thursday: President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney conceded that Saddam Hussein had NO weapons of mass destruction as they tried to shift the Iraq war debate to a new issue, arguing that Saddam was abusing the food-for-oil program.  We think it should be clear that Bush committed a grievous error invading Iraq and that toppling the scumbag dictator only increased the power of neighboring Iran.
  52. 2008 Tuesday: The misery worsened on Wall Street, as the Dow lost more than 500 points and all the major indexes slid more than 5 percent.
  53. 2011 Friday: Over 110 people undergo arrest for participating in one of the largest identity theft and retail crime rings in U.S. history.
  54. 2012 Sunday: Antisa Khvichava, a Georgian woman believed to be the oldest woman of all time, dies at age 132.
  55. 2013 Monday: A partial federal government shutdown lingered, rattling markets in the U.S. and overseas while a gridlocked Congress betrayed little or no urgency toward resolving the impasse.  Meanwhile, Americans James Rothman and Randy Schekman and German-born researcher Thomas Suedhof won the Nobel Peace prize in medicine for discoveries on how proteins and other material are transported within cells.
  56. 2014 Tuesday: Wal-Mart announces that, due to the Affordable Care Act, it will increase health benefit costs for all employees and end health benefits for its 30,000 or so workers with fewer than 30 hours per week; the changes will take place in January 2015.
  57. 2015 Wednesday: Following the tragic bombing by U.S. warplanes on a hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan, that killed several people and wounded numerous others, President Barack Obama offers a formal apology to the medical charity group, Doctors without Borders.
  58. 2016 Friday: In what the Washington Post believes is the silver bullet that is going to destroy the presidential campaign of businessman Donald J. Trump, they release a video in which, the New Yorker brags to Billy Bush on a segment of Entertainment Tonight in which, he explains that being ‘rich allows him to get away with groping and kissing women against their will.’  The comments were made about contestants in beauty contests in which, the real estate developer had part ownership.  It did NOT destroy him. 
  59. 2017 Saturday: Country music star Jason Aldean, who had been on stage at an outdoor concert in Las Vegas less than a week earlier when a gunman opened fire on the crowd from high up in a hotel room, paid tribute and to late Tom Petty by opening “Saturday Night Live” with Petty’s song, “I Won’t Back Down.”
  60. 2018 Sunday: Communist China announces that it has Meng Hongwei, the chief of Interpol, in its custody after the global law enforcement officer had gone ‘missing.’  Hongwei subsequently resigns from the organization.  After holding him on charges of corruption ranging from 2005 to 2017, the Chi-Coms send him to jail for 13.5 years following his conviction on January 21, 2020. 
  61. 2019 Monday: Democrat and GOP lawmakers blast President Donald J. Trump over his decision to pull U.S. troops out of Syria which will leave allied Kurdish forces vulnerable to angry Turks across the border who want to go in there, establish a ‘safe zone’ and kill as many Kurds as they possibly can.  Critics of the president call what he’s doing goes against the grain in U.S.-allied relations and threaten terrible things are going to occur if someone does not stop him.  Meanwhile, Democrats in the House continue building up to their impeachment inquiry.  The 45th president is taking it from all sides.
  62. 2020 Wednesday: Reports continue coming in from around the nation of people receiving multiple mail-in ballots even though they live alone or family members are dead.  It is clear that the Democrats are doing everything imaginable and somethings that aren’t to steal the elections in November.  When the GOP wins back the House, keeps the Senate, and Donald Trump has another four years (should have another eight due to the Obama-led coup against him), and the GOP wins more state houses, we will need a new Constitutional amendment in which, the federal government has oversight over the elections process, can demand voter ID, NO early voting, voting in person, and sentences of up to 20 years in prison for any voter fraud with NO early release, even for pandemics such as the Chi-Vi.  We cannot have Democrat-held states trying to subvert the elections process because once no one has faith in election outcomes, we will be going down a dark path from which there is no return.  Speaking of “Chi-Com Joe” Biden, we learn at his last town hall meeting with Lester Holt as the moderator, the ‘undecided voters’ were hand-picked Biden SUPPORTERS.  What an embarrassment.
  63. 2020 Wednesday A: The New York Times endorses “Pro-China Joe” Biden; what took them so long?  President Donald J. Trump calls for ‘stand-alone’ stimulus checks of $1,200 per citizen since the Democrat-held House of Representatives continues to defy both the president and the GOP-held Senate with their insane demands.  Meanwhile, a Washington Examiner/YouGov poll says a ‘majority of the American people do NOT want a liberal Supreme Court.   Moving on, down in Texas, a grand jury indicts Netflix on its film, “Cuties,” that promotes and praises pedophilia and the victimization of young prepubescent girls as some sort of ‘artistic film.’  Good.  Sue them, shut them down or break them up.   Finally, as Cat 4 storm Delta continues to storm across the western Caribbean region, 57 oil rigs in the gulf begin evacuating all personnel.
  64. 2020 Wednesday B: Speaking of the Chi-Coms and their tools like “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his running mate, Kamala Harris, Beijing WARNED the U.S. NOT to reestablish diplomatic relations with Taiwan.  Here is what we say: “F**K THEM!”  Speaking of the Chi-Coms and their Wuhan Virus pandemic, here are the latest stats: 35,998,606 confirmed cases, UP by 344,335 cases, 1,052,736 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,927 deaths, and 25,055,487 confirmed recoveries, UP by 220,491 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 7,638,376 confirmed cases, UP by 84,984 new cases, 214,902 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,440 new deaths, and 4,958,537 confirmed recoveries, UP by 52,905 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt motherf**kers).  Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 281,481 confirmed cases, 1,824 confirmed deaths, and 216,613 confirmed recoveries.
  65. 2020 Wednesday C: 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: 841,583 confirmed cases, 16,301 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 13,090 confirmed cases, 159 confirmed deaths, and 10,470 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 94,932 confirmed cases, 2,262 confirmed deaths, but like California, the palooka-faced governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more soon-to-be-state, if the Democrats have their way: District of Columbia: 15,697 confirmed number of cases, 632 confirmed deaths, and 12,350 confirmed number of recoveries- thank you, Mayor Muriel Bowser for sharing the number of recoveries.
  66. 2020 Wednesday D: Here are today’s BIG Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 28,303.46, UP a whopping 530.70 points (+1.91%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,364.60, UP 210.00 points (+1.91%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,419.45, UP 58.50 points (+1.74%).  The price of GOLD is $1,890.40 per troy oz., -0.40 (-0.02%) while the price of SILVER is $23.90 per troy ounce, +0.004 (+0.02%).  The price of PLATINUM is $868.90 per troy oz, +2.10 (+0.24%) while the price of COPPER is $3.03 per pound, -0.0055 (-0.18%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,382.10 per troy oz, -9.10 (-0.38%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $40.06 per barrel, +0.11 (+0.28%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.79 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 22.46.
  67. 2020 Wednesday E: As everyone knows, we spend hours per day tabulating the collusion between the Chi-Coms and their stooges in the Democratic Party.  Today, ancient actress best known for her role in “Barbarella,” and for going to North Vietnam during the height of the war in Vietnam, speaking to U.S. POWS and then relaying messages they told her back to their captors- Jane Fonda- says that ‘COVID-19 is God’s (to her, Satan’s) gift to the Democratic Party.  Wow.  Jane, time for you to go swallow a bottle of arsenic and join your master in HELL.  Worthless c**t.
  68. 2020 Wednesday F: The vice-presidential debate occurred tonight with the sitting VP Mike Pence going up against challenger, Democratic Senator Kamala Harris of California.  Unlike last week’s battle between President Donald J. Trump and not one but TWO adversaries- ‘moderator’ Chris Wallace of the Fox News Channel, one of the reasons why we no longer watch FNC, and former Vice President Joseph R. “Pro-China” Biden, this one was much more cordial and politie.  We received different vibes tonight- Mike Pence was solid and unflappable and Senator Harris managed to keep the bitchiness factor under control.   It seemed as though moderator Susan Page allowed the challenger to go on while she tried to restrict the vice president from answering questions put to him in full.  Anyhow, the debate was far better than the first presidential debate last week although neither side would ever answer the questions asked directly but generally chose to answer the previous one or the one before.  I will say it is shameful to ask any president if ‘he will leave the White House if he loses the election.’  Of course they will but it is important that our elections are fair and when the Democrats have no problem showing they are doing everything to STEAL it, who would commit to such an answer?  The election must be fair.
