2011 Friday: Oh, one must love the so-called ‘religion of peace!’ A suicide bomber strapped up with a suicide vest enters a public bathhouse in Kandahar Province in Afghanistan and before bathers can escape for the exits, the POS jihadist detonates his explosive device. In the ensuring explosion, 17 unfortunate guests are sent on a one-way trip to meet with Allah while another 20 or so people remain in varying states of distress. What is wrong with these f**king people?

  52. 2009 Wednesday: Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin endorses plan to cut off natural gas lines to Western Europe running through the Ukraine.  Meanwhile, the Congressional Budget Office- aka the CBO- issues a warning putting everyone on notice that the federal government will create a $1.2 trillion budget deficit into this year thanks to the ‘Great Recession,’ one engineered by the Democrats to launch Barack Hussein Obama into the White House last November- with no end in sight.

  59. 2016 Thursday: Leftwing media reports that ‘national resistance’ is growing against ICE raids across the country.  Folks, we want the illegal aliens rounded up, loaded aboard whatever transports are available, and returned to sender.  Meanwhile in the Israeli occupied West Bank, an Israeli cop shoots and kills 4 Palestinians who were running amok.

  62. 2019 Monday: At Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California, #2 Clemson beats #1 Alabama by a final score of 44-16 to win the College Football National Championship.   Meanwhile, as the shutdown of the federal government continues grinding on (Democrats screeching about all the lost wages government employees are losing- they always get paid), President Donald J. Trump says that he has ‘plans to address the nation.’  Elsewhere, as Democrats visit the border with Mexico for some photo ops, they lambaste President Trump for saying ‘he might declare a national emergency to bring the government shutdown to an end.’
  63. 2020 Tuesday: Among the fake news media and their sycophant Democrat politicians, the buzzword about President Donald J. Trump this week is that he is an ‘assassin’ because he droned Quds Force scumbag terrorist leader Qassim Soleimani at the Baghdad Airport the previous week.  Meanwhile at the funeral of Gen. Soleimani in Tehran, 50 people are trampled to death and countless others injured as the million or more mourners go berserk.  What is it about these Muslim states that they know how to put on a ‘proper funeral?’  Meanwhile communist candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders goes on the attack by going after fading former Vice President Joe Biden who amazingly manages to cling to the top of the polls.   Later in the day, the Iranians begin firing barrages of cruise missiles into Iraq, targeting American bases.  Light them up, President Trump, light the camel monkeys up using neutron bombs.  Finally, famed rock drummer/lyricist Neil Peart of Rush[iii] dies in Santa Monica, California, at age 67 from a brain tumor. 
  64. 2021 Thursday: Here are the results for the Third Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award: first place winners are Xi Jinping and the Chi-Coms who came in with 664 votes and earn the symbolic dragging down into the bowels of the Lubyanka Prison and getting ‘lead to the back of the head.’  The winner of the second-place award- the Nadaraia and Sarkisian Award- is Governor Andrew Cuomo with 198 votes.  The third-place award- the Red Banner Idols Award- is Mayor Bill Di Blasio with 156 votes while the fourth and final place award winner of the Beijing Bat Bug Award is Governor Gavin Newsom with 143 votes.  Fifth place and out of the running is Mayor Eric Garcetti of Los Angeles, California, with 87 votes.  Congratulations to the four winners!
  65. 2021 Thursday A: House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi commands Vice President Mike Pence to use the 25th Amendment to remove President Donald J. Trump NOW; otherwise, the Democrats will launch immediate impeachment hearings with the end goal being to remove him before Inauguration Day as well as to prevent him from ever seeking federal office again.  Following yesterday’s Antifa and Black Lives Matter on the U.S. Capitol yesterday, various Trump administration officials are jumping ship, the riot being the perfect excuse.  Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao is leaving as are Matthew Pottinger (deputy national security adviser), Stephanie Grisham (chief of staff to First Lady Melania Trump), Sarah Matthews (deputy press secretary), John Costello (deputy assistant secretary of commerce), Mick Mulvaney (former White House chief of staff and special envoy to Northern Ireland), Rickie Niceta (White House social secretary), and Ryan Tully (senior director for European and Russian affairs at the National Security Council).  Amazing how convenient the ‘storming of the Capitol’ was for both the Democrats and wavering Republicans to either attack Trump or to abandon ship.  Still, more are said to follow on their bootheels.  Imagine if our enemies nuked us now?
  66. 2021 Thursday B: Body count for yesterday’s ‘storming of the Capitol 2021’ are four dead including a 14-year USAF veteran.  In the aftermath of the violence, Facebook, and Instagram block Donald Trump indefinitely while Twitter deleted ALL Trump tweets and threatens the 45th President with a permanent suspension.  Meanwhile, disgraced former FBI Director James Comey says, “Donald Trump should NOT be prosecuted.”  How nice. Elsewhere, Judge Leslie Abrams Gardner- sister of Stacey Abrams- continues to say, “She won’t recuse herself from the Georgia election fraud cases.”  Wish Republicans possessed balls like she does.
  67. 2021 Thursday C: Early this morning, both chambers of Congress certified the Electoral College accounts following a joint session of Congress.  “Pro-China Joe” Biden and “Kooky Kamala” Harris are now president-elect and vice-president-elect.”  The Chi-Coms have won, the country is toppled, and we either must get with the socialist-communist program or find ourselves in the gulags building canals to nowhere.  Meanwhile, an ebullient Senator Chuck Schumer, D-NY, says, ‘getting $2,000 stimulus checks to the American people are high on his agenda.’  What he fails to say is that ‘all relief money is taxable.’  Elsewhere, FEMA approves a disaster declaration for the aftermath of the Nashville Christmas Day bombing.
  68. 2021 Thursday D: Last week 787 thousand Americans filed for first-time jobless benefits which is down from last week albeit still high.  Meanwhile, as people flee California, Sacramento reports tax revenues are down by 43-percent.  Woe to those who remain because they must make up the difference: this means, YOU, middle class Californians.  
  69. 2021 Thursday E: As problems continue in the nation’s capital, the D.C. bomb squad is evacuating the Capitol area following suspicious packages being found.  Meanwhile, Acting DHS Secretary Ken Cuccinelli has DHS officials erecting fencing around the Capitol Building to prevent another mob assault on the buildings of government.  Simultaneously, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser extends the emergency declaration keeping the city locked down and on curfew for an additional 15 days.  Meanwhile, the ‘ever-reputable’ New York Times says, ‘Donald Trump is considering a pardon for himself.’  Speaking of the NYT and the Washington Post, we learn that these notables of American Mainstream News Media have participated along with other news sites in Chinese Communist Party propaganda events.  My, my, my!
  70. 2021 Thursday F: U.S. corporations announce they are considering blocking monetary support to all Republicans who participated in the raising of objections over the fraudulent 2020 Presidential Election.  This is how it goes, anyone supportive of Trump or of the rule of law will now find him-or-herself banned from normal society.   Still, the 45th president continues doing his job by adding Alibaba and Tencent to the Chi-Com stock bans on Wall Street.  Also, regarding the president, as protests sweep across the country designed to tarnish ALL Trump supporters, nine violent nuts undergo arrest in front of Trump Tower in Manhattan, N.Y.
  71. 2021 Thursday G: Amazon announces it’s going to invest $2 billion into building affordable housing in three locations across the United States.  Meanwhile, Politico is reporting that Vice President Mike Pence will attend the inauguration of “Pro-China Joe” Biden on January 20, 2021.  Elsewhere, the Girl Scouts of America are considering doing digital sales due to the Chi-Vi still running amok across the country.  Details on when sales will begin are coming soon.  They may still do door-to-door sales, too.
  72. 2021 Thursday H: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 87,792,629 confirmed cases, +1,040,315, 1,893,420, confirmed deaths, +18,100, and 49,009,936 confirmed recoveries, +372,200.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 21,670,559 confirmed cases, up 461,719 from yesterday’s reporting, 366,434 confirmed deaths, UP 6,589, and 9,696,913 confirmed recoveries, UP 101,980.
  73. 2021 Thursday I: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 2,548,494 confirmed cases, 28,040 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 22,527 confirmed cases, 299 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 265,790 confirmed cases, 3,681 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Iowa: currently, they have 291,394 confirmed cases, 4,065 confirmed deaths, and 251,660 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 463,448 confirmed cases, 3,529 confirmed deaths, and 398,638 confirmed recoveries. 
  74. 2021 Thursday J:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,041.13, UP 211.73 points (+0.69%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,067.48, UP 326.69 points (+2.56%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,803.79, UP 55.65 points (+1.48%).  The price of GOLD is $1,915.80 per troy oz., +2.20 (+0.11%) while the price of SILVER is $27.28 per troy ounce, +0.014 (+0.05%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,127.90 per troy oz, +3.30 (+0.29%) while the price of COPPER is $3.71 per pound, +0.0095 (+0.26%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,431.60 per troy oz, -16.50 (-0.67%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $50.96 per barrel, +0.13 (+0.26%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.48 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Russian rubles equals 74.34.
  75. 2021 Thursday K: After failing to stop the Antifa mob (in the guise of Trump supporters) that stormed the Capitol Building yesterday, Capitol Hill Police Chief Steven Sund is going to go into retirement.  He is suffering blame for not having anticipated the actions of Antifa trash that infiltrated the peaceful Trump supporters.  (It is important to note that a Capitol Hill police officer died today following injuries suffered in yesterday’s riot).  Federal prosecutors plan to file charges- including sedition charges- against at least 15 people involved in the storming of the Capitol yesterday.  Elsewhere, Boeing is going to pay a $2.5 billion fine over its attempt to cover up the issues of the 737 Boeing Max airliner that suffered two major crashes.   Meanwhile, Michelle Obama urges social media to ban Donald Trump permanently; she also lambastes his supporters using all manner of vile and hateful language.  Thank you, former Madam First Lady.
  76. 2021 Thursday L: Iraq’s Supreme Judicial Council has issued an arrest warrant for President Donald J. Trump following a year-long investigation into the whacking of Quds Force General Qassim Soleimani at the Baghdad airport last year via drone strike.  The charges of murder could bring about the death penalty.  Iran has issued an Interpol ‘red notice’ for President Trump and 47 of his top officials.  Interpol waved off this request before but now with Trump on the outs, one just never knows.   Meanwhile, CNN (a bogus source) reports that President Trump encouraged Vice President Mike Pence to ‘engineer a coup on his behalf’ and then when the mob of Antifa and BLM thugs, he did ‘little to nothing to make sure the VP and his attendant family members were secure from the violent left-wing mob.’  Wow.  We expect history will be revised and that between the 44th and 46th presidents there will be a GAP- NO 45th president.  The victors typically write the history… Finally, after a ‘pro-Trump mob’ surrounded the Georgia State Capitol Building, law enforcement had to escort a terrified Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger out of the facility and into his car.  It just gets better.
  77. 2021 Thursday M: Acting U.S. Attorney for D.C. Michael Sherwin says, ‘it’s possible that charges may be brought against the 45th president once he leaves office,’ citing his ‘language’ and ‘coarse gesticulations’ that spurred on a crowd of his ‘supporters’ to rush to the Capitol Building and storm into it.  IF you watched the president’s speech to his supporters, you know he did no such thing and had not social median not immediately taken down his tweets in which, he begged for peace, you know he did none of what the liberals are accusing him of doing.   Later in the day, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos offered her resignation over the events of the previous day.  Meanwhile, Senator Kelly Loeffler concedes to the Reverend Raphael Warnock putting both U.S. Senate seats in the Peach State into the hands of the Democrats, thus cementing Senator Chuck Schumer’s position as the BIG CHEESE in the U.S. Senate.
  78. 2022 Friday: Stick around, folks…

ENDNOTES:

[i] We feel bad that we did not begin promoting the music of Paul Revere and the Raiders around the time we shared the music of the Flamin’ Groovies.  Well, we hope to slip them in sometime within the next 6-7 years.  Please remain vigilant for the time that we do.  You will be glad you did.

[ii] We look forward to doing the music of Steely Dan at some point within the next 10-15 years.  Please stay with us.

[iii] We presented another series of interconnected bands which included Free, Bad Company, Led Zeppelin, the Firm, Mott the Hoople, Ian Hunter, the Yardbirds, and a plethora of solo and group efforts beginning on Wednesday, 02-July-2014 through Sunday, 19-October-2014.  We definitely hope that you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your growing collection.

[iii] Not sure when we will begin promoting the music of Rush but when we do, you will be the first to know.

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

66. 2021 Monday K: Mayor Muriel Bowser, the horrible woman who runs Washington, D.C., called out the National Guard to be prepared for ‘trouble’ when hundreds of thousands and possibly a million or more Trump supporters arrive in the nation’s capital on Wednesday. She could care less that her beloved Antifa and Black Lives Matter mobs riot in the streets, accosting anyone they suspect of being a Trump supporter where they stand.

  43. 2007 Thursday: Nancy Pelosi, D-CA 12th congressional district, became the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, becoming the first woman in U.S. history to hold the position.  She would turn out to be one of the worst speakers of all time—she was and still is a disaster.  Anyhow, as the 52nd person to hold the speakership, she would serve from today until she lost Congress on January 03, 2011.

  51. 2017 Tuesday: Republican lawmakers launch their first bid- under the incoming Trump administration to repeal the Affordable Care Act.   President-elect Donald J. Trump drives the left bonkers again by tweeting Julian Assange’s claim that ‘Russia was not behind the leak of Hillary Clinton’s emails.’  
  52. 2018 Wednesday: Lifelong member of the Moody Blues[iii]– flautist Ray Thomas- died at age 76 in Surrey, United Kingdom, on this date.  Elsewhere, to the delight of millions of Americans who want to see America restored to the pedestal of greatness, President Donald J. Trump announces he will open almost coastal waters to offshore drilling.  Meanwhile, the controversial- mostly fictional book by author Michael Wolff- “Fire and Fury”- one President Trump supposedly tried to quash- hits U.S. bookstands today.  Note- it died a quick death.
  53. 2019 Thursday: In Rancho Santa Fe, California, the former 14th U.S. Secretary of Defense Harold Brown died at age 91.  A Democrat, he served under President Jimmy Carter from 01-21-1977 to 01-20-1981.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump says that the government shutdown could last for months, maybe even years.  Elsewhere, Democrats are putting together their talking points for the new congress when the world sees the tape of Rashida Tlaib saying ‘we’re going to go to Washington, D.C. and impeach that mother-f**ker’ referring to President Donald J. Trump.  What a disgusting human being this skank Tlaib is.  Strip her of citizenship and deport her to Gaza City.
  54. 2020 Saturday: Following the droning of Iranian General Qassim Soleimani, Democrats are screaming and crying of dreadful things to come and warning that President Trump is usurping powers not meant for the president but for Congress.  Oh, well. Elsewhere, in the early AFC Wildcard Game, the Houston Texans beat the Buffalo Bills by a score of 22-19.  In the late AFC Wildcard Game, the Tennessee Titans knock off the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots by a final score of 20-13.  
  55. 2021 Monday: A top NSA official informs the British government that the Chi-Coms did indeed loose the dreaded Chi-Vi- aka the Kung Flu, the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, the Chi-Com Virus, the Chinese Virus, Yellow Fever 2020, etc.- on the world on purpose.  Time to begin preparing those lawsuits for the Hague to punish the Chi-Coms for waging germ warfare on the world.   Elsewhere, the lovely president of the totalitarian state of Iran- Hassan Rouhani- declares, once again, that President Donald J. Trump will be dead in a few days.  Lovely people, lovely, time to nuke them.   Anyhow, Israel slaps back at the Iranians for saying their country is trying to engineer a way by which the Trump administration will go to war with the jihadist Islamic republic. 
  56. 2021 Monday A: Pope Francis (another lovely human being) criticizes those who have gone on holiday so as to escape the authoritarian COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions imposed on them by fascist leaders.  Pope Francis- please, STFU.  Next, Mexican President Lopez Obrador offers WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange asylum following a British judge declaring he will NOT be extradited to the United States to face trial.  President Trump- pardon this man.  Elsewhere, following the Tel-Cos cuts to the BIG THREE Chi-Com telecommunications companies- China Mobile Ltd., China Telecom Corp., and China Unicom Hong Kong Ltd., Chi-Com oil majors may undergo delisting on the NYSE.  About time the communist country faced punishment for their innumerable crimes.
  57. 2021 Monday B: Things in Georgia are getting crazy what with the state government doing everything to defy President Trump in his quest for redress over the corrupt and fraudulent election on November 3.  A phone call between the 45th president and Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger is leaked by the secretary himself in an effort to make the president look bad.  While Secretary Raffensperger continues calling it the ‘most secure election in history,’ anyone who watched the testimony before a Georgia senate subcommittee this past week on OAN understands that it was anything but.  The lieutenant governor of the Peach State- Geoff Duncan- leapt onto Trump’s back by accusing President Trump of trying to steal the election.  This led California Democrat Congressman Ted Lieu- another tool of the Chi-Coms[iv]– to send a referral to the FBI to prosecute the president for trying to engineer election fraud.  When the bodies begin dropping, Congressman, you will have only yourself to blame, you little c***sucker.   
  58. 2021 Monday C: ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden says he will replace the inaugural parade with a short walk to the White House.  Meanwhile, to the dismay of all, Arkansas GOP Senator Tom Cotton says, ‘contesting the election is beyond the powers of Congress.’  Looks like “Cocaine Mitch” got to you, senator.  Sad to see you cross over to the DARK SIDE.  Elsewhere, another RINO Senator Marco Rubio says that ‘both Jon Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock are unqualified to serve in the U.S. Senate.’  We agree.  However, recent polls show both Democrats with a 51-47 percent lead over both Republicans.  C’est la vie.
  59. 2021 Monday D: A Harvard space expert says, ‘the Earth has been visited, monitored by alien life.’  We wish some of that alien life would show up right about now and wipe out the Chi-Coms, the Iranians, the Russians, Venezuelans, Cubans, North Koreans, the Democratic Party, Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and the Fake News Media.  How about it?  Meanwhile, the U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams says that ‘mitigation efforts are essential’ what with the arrival of the new strain of the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Meanwhile, the U.S. eyes half-doses of the Moderna vaccine in order to hasten the roll-out of the anti-viral.   Elsewhere, the IRS says the executors of the Prince estate cut its worth by 50-percent.  Not good.
  60. 2021 Monday E: Newsmax reports that after a pastor in an East Texas church found a thug hiding in his house of worship for whom law enforcement was searching, the reverend drew his gun on the man but was quickly disarmed by the POS who then shot him dead, wounded two others, and then stole the vehicle and sped away. 
  61. 2021 Monday F: Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi wins another term as speaker by a vote of 220 for her while 192 voted for House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy.  The aged speaker whose pendulous breasts droop down to her waist has the slimmest majority in history, a ‘majority’ of 10 seats. 
  62. 2021 Monday G: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 85,555,275 confirmed cases, +570,221, 1,849,949, confirmed deaths, +8,827, and 48,058,025 confirmed recoveries, +280,467.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 20,933,546 confirmed cases, up 337,286 from yesterday’s reporting, 355,836 confirmed deaths, UP 2,527, and 9,351,020 confirmed recoveries, UP 127,459.
  63. 2021 Monday H: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 2,444,466 confirmed cases, 26,638 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 22,049 confirmed cases, 289 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 258,557 confirmed cases, 3,524 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Louisiana: currently, they have 322,881 confirmed cases, 7,585 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 445,845 confirmed cases, 3,435 confirmed deaths, and 390,287 confirmed recoveries.
  64. 2020 Monday I:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,223.89, DOWN 382.59 points (-1.25%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,698.45, DOWN 189.45 points (-1.47%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,700.65, DOWN 55.42 points (-1.48%).  The price of GOLD is $1,948.00 per troy oz., +1.40 (+0.07%) while the price of SILVER is $27.42 per troy ounce, +0.051 (+0.19%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,083.70 per troy oz, +12.20 (+1.14%) while the price of COPPER is $3.56 per pound, +0.0095 (+0.27%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,391.20 per troy oz, -62.60 (-2.55%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $47.33 per barrel, -0.29 (-0.61%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.94. 
  65. 2021 Monday J: Indiana announces it will host the entire NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament.  Meanwhile, the Trump administration announces that a breakthrough between Qatar and other Arab Persian Gulf states has been reached in patching up their quarrel.  Elsewhere, USAF personnel in Germany begin receiving their vaccinations for the Chi-Vi.  Finally, Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, labels NBC’s Chuck Todd’s barrage on him while the senator was appearing on his Sunday show as highly ‘unprofessional’ which it was.
  66. 2021 Monday K: Mayor Muriel Bowser, the horrible woman who runs Washington, D.C., called out the National Guard to be prepared for ‘trouble’ when hundreds of thousands and possibly a million or more Trump supporters arrive in the nation’s capital on Wednesday.  She could care less that her beloved Antifa and Black Lives Matter mobs riot in the streets, accosting anyone they suspect of being a Trump supporter in the streets.  Mobs such as what we just mentioned are what keeps Chief Justice John Roberts of the United States Supreme Court trembling in his bed at night.  Meanwhile, President Trump held a massive rally in Georgia today in support of Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Purdue.  Elsewhere, outgoing Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos urges Congress to reject the policies of “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his consort, Kooky Kamala Harris, should these two losers become president and vice-president.   
  67. 2021 Monday L: The Pentagon says the USS aircraft carrier Nimitz and her accompanying flotilla will remain on station in the Persian Gulf following all of the threats against President Donald J. Trump, as well as Trump administration officials, spilling out of the foul mouths of the Iranian leadership.  We hope to see them nuked before much longer.  Meanwhile, the CIA’s new recruitment website seeks to diversify the agency.  Should have been done decades ago…speaking of the Central Intelligence Agency, a private cybersecurity company, FireEye, says the Russian cyberattack on numerous targets in the United States occurred within the United States.  Not good.  Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says that ‘communist China and North Korea’ are President Trump’s ‘unfinished business.’ 
  68. 2021 Monday M: House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s first major act picking up the gavel again is to force ALL House members to use BS gender neutral terms so as NOT to hurt anyone’s feelings.  Wow.  Really important there, almost makes one long for getting nuked by the Chi-Coms to stop stupidity such as this.  The Reverend Franklin Graham blasts “Mumbles” Pelosi for doing this.  Meanwhile, the state of Georgia in a big show says, ‘it’s going to investigate charges of voter fraud and suppression in the two run-off races taking place TOMORROW.’  Amazing.   Elsewhere, the United States Marine Corps begins preparing for conflict with the Chi-Coms by conducting island warfare exercises.
  69. 2022 Tuesday: We encourage everyone to stick around to discover whatever scurrilous goings-on are occurring today as the Chi-Coms continue trying to force their Manchurian candidate “Pro-China Joe” Biden and Manchurian candidate #2 Kooky Kamala Harris into office at the expense of the nation.  Stick around and discover WTF the communists-socialists are up to today.

  45. 2015 Sunday: Iraqi military forces kill or drive out ISIS thugs from the city of Ramadi after heavy fighting.  The jihadist group captured the city in May and the Iraqis aided by U.S. advisers and air power cleaned the clocks of the scum who terrorized the city for months.  Elsewhere, after the Chicago Police Department kills two black Americans, people take to the streets demanding POS Mayor Rahm Emanuel resign from office.  (He didn’t).
  46. 2016 Tuesday:  As the United States prepares to speed up arms shipments to Syrian rebels, Russia launches another protest against the Obama-led United States, soon to be the Trump-led United States.  Speaking of U.S. arms sales, the United States comes in with the title of biggest arms merchant in the world with sales totaling more than $40 billion.   Meanwhile, during a visit to Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe expresses ‘regret’ for the 1941 strike by his country on the naval and air base.

  48. 2018 Thursday: Richard Overton, the nation’s oldest living World War II veteran who was also believed to be the oldest living man in the U.S., died in Texas at the age of 112.   Meanwhile, Fake News Media continues lamenting how the ‘government shutdown’ may continue into the New Year.  The only reason it’s going in the first place is because Democrats won’t fund the southern border wall, a wall that will STOP open borders.  Democrats wise the f**k up, we don’t want to be overrun by swarms of illegal aliens.
  49. 2019 Friday: While enfeebled House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi continues holding the articles of impeachment lodged against President Donald J. Trump but not carried over to the Senate as the law states they must, experts continue debating whether ‘Trump is actually impeached’ of he is not.  Pelosi says, ‘he is and will forever be’ but others say, ‘no, he’s not, not until the declining speaker carries them over to the upper chamber and presents them to the Senate majority leader.’   Meanwhile, the Federal Reserve claims that ‘Trump’s economic war with communist China has backfired.’  They don’t like the tariffs. 
  50. 2020 Sunday: Republican Congressman-elect Andrew Clyde of Georgia’s 9th congressional district wants to eliminate ALL firearms background checks as a means of protecting the 2nd Amendment from liberal dismantlement.  Meanwhile, New York state Democrats urge the uppity Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez NOT to primary Senate Minority Leader Chuckie Schumer when he comes up for re-election.  We hope she does as it will be the end of her political career.   
  51. 2020 Sunday A: The Georgia Bureau of Investigation and election investigators are running another audit of election signatures.  Speaking of fraudulent elections, President Donald J. Trump calls out the Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel, Democrat, for resisting calls for an investigation into the rampant voter fraud and corruption that occurred across the state in the hours and days after Election Day November 3, 2020.  Meanwhile, in Rockford, Illinois, cops are on a manhunt after last night’s fatal shootings at the Don Carter Lanes bowling alley in which three people died and another three were wounded.   Elsewhere, after another thug fires into a crowd in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, two people died and several others were injured.  Cops there are seeking the 37-year-old shooter.
  52. 2020 Sunday B: In Nashville, federal, state, and local cops are closing in on the perp behind the RV bomb explosion in downtown that damaged 41 buildings- a revised figure from the original 20- and searched the home of a suspect, a computer tech specialist named Anthony Quinn Warner. 
  53. 2020 Sunday C: We learned of, yet another outrage committed by Nancy Pelosi’s nephew, Governor Gavin Newsom of California.  Californians voted to increase gas taxes two election cycles ago so the state’s crumbling roads systems could be repaired.  The promise to the voters was that the tax revenues would go directly to the road repairs but oh, no, with the stroke of a pen on an executive order, Gavin Newsom redirected the $5 billion the road improvement law raised into fighting GLOBAL WARMING as well as funding the defunct high-speed rail system (and we also think into CalPERS, the state’s penniless state employees retirement fund).  Anyone living in California MUST SIGN the recall petition.  This POS must go.
  54. 2020 Sunday D: On the healthcare front, we learn that 1.56 billion PPE masks will find their way into the Pacific and Indian Oceans this year because Asians could give a flying f**k about polluting the world’s oceans.  Meanwhile, as fears increase over the new strain of the Chi-Vi discovered in Great Britain, California health officials now are testing for the B1.1.7 strain of the Chi-Com Virus.  Speaking of this foul lab-engineered disease, a New York state healthcare network is under investigation for unauthorized distribution of the Wuhan Virus vaccine.   Elsewhere, Japan shuts down air travel other than for its citizens returning home over fears of the B1.1.7 Xi Jinping Bat Flu strain.   Finally, three European nations- Germany, Hungary, and Slovakia administer the first China Virus vaccinations in Europe to citizens over the age of 80.
  55. 2020 Sunday E: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Yellow Bat Flu- the -disease the Chi-Coms manufactured in their Wuhan biowarfare lab and their allies, the Democratic Party- used to throw the election to “Pro-China Joe” Biden, aka “Chi-Com Joe”:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 80,671,407 confirmed cases, +505,047, 1,762,630, confirmed deaths, +7,868, and 45,612,622 confirmed recoveries, +362,356.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 19,262,641 confirmed cases, up 227,422 from yesterday’s reporting, 336,458 confirmed deaths, UP 1,819, and 8,412,707 confirmed recoveries, UP 97,410.
  56. 2020 Sunday F: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 2,144,430 confirmed cases, 24,231 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 20,970 confirmed cases, 285 confirmed deaths, and no longer any mention of confirmed recoveries at this point.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 240,763 confirmed cases, 3,283 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: New Jersey- currently, they have 463,166 confirmed cases, 18,630 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo is living there: 401,470 confirmed cases, 3,226 confirmed deaths, and 364,012 confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of Israel, anti-Benjamin Netanyahu protesters are in the streets of the country demanding he step down from office.
  57. 2020 Sunday G: White House economic adviser Stephen Moore says that ‘tax cuts for businesses should be included in the COVID-19 relief bill,’ which would help all of them get back on their feet sooner as would the authoritarian governors allowing everyone to return to work instead of persecuting people who want to open their businesses or return to work.    Regarding the economy, U.S. retail sales have risen by 3-percent over the course of the holidays meaning big box stores and online businesses are cleaning up while smaller businesses are dying.
  58. 2020 Sunday H: Here are today’s NFL games: (5) Chicago Bears, 41 (8-7) @ Jacksonville Jaguars, 17 (1-14) Sunday 10:00 A.M.  (6) Atlanta Falcons, 14 (4-11) @ Kansas City Chiefs, 17 (14-1) 10:00 A.M.  (7) Indianapolis Colts, 24 (10-5) @ Pittsburgh Steelers, 28 (12-3) 10:00 A.M.  (8) Cleveland Browns, 16 (10-5) @ New York Jets, 23 (2-13) 10:00 A.M.  (9) Cincinnati Bengals, 37 (4-10-1) @ Houston Texans, 31 (4-11) 10:00 A.M.  (10) New York Giants, 13 (5-10) @ Baltimore Ravens, 27 (10-5) 10:00 A.M.  (11) Denver Broncos, 16 (5-10) @ Los Angeles Chargers, 19 (6-9) 1:05 P.M.  (12) Carolina Panthers, 20 (5-10) @ Washington Redskins, 13 (6-9) 1:05 P.M. (13) Philadelphia Eagles, 17 (4-10-1) @ Dallas Cowboys, 37 (6-9) 1:25 P.M.  (14) Los Angeles Rams, 9 (9-6) @ Seattle Seahawks, 20 (11-4) 1:25 P.M.  (15) Tennessee Titans, 14 (10-5) @ Green Bay Packers, 40 (12-3) 5:20 P.M.  Tomorrow night’s Monday Night Football Game: (16) Buffalo Bills (11-3) @ New England Patriots (6-8) 5:15 P.M.
  59. 2020 Sunday I: Here is where we were one year ago today: Wow, another week comes to an end and the Chi-Coms and their allies in Iran (s-hole country), Russia (another s-hole country), Canada (a real s-hole country), and Cuba, Venezuela, and other s-hole countries NEVER sleep nor do their Democratic Party allies in the U.S.  We will keep you posted- you stick around and find out WTF they’re doing…
  60. 2021 Monday: You have me for the end of the year so let’s have some fun…good, clean Christian fun and none of this overeating, over-drinking, which seems to afflict so many of us.  Our country needs God right now and everyone must beg Him to enter their lives so we can push back on these godless communists.  Join me throughout the rest of this week- Chef Bea.

  62. 2020 Wednesday: As RINO Republicans continue pushing President Donald J. Trump aside so they can return to ‘business as usual’ (the COVID-19 Relief/Stimulus Bill’s extraordinary price tag is a prime example), President Trump vows that Senator John Thune, part of GOP leadership in the upper house, will face a primary challenger.  He and his boss, Mitch McConnell deserve to lose their seats.  Regarding the $750 billion Defense Bill, the president suggests he is likely to veto that bi-partisan disaster, too- update, HE DID VETO IT because restrictions on Big Tech are not included.  Meanwhile, the president continues blasting the COVID-19 Relief/Stimulus bill criticizing HOW Americans are being shafted with measly $600 checks when ILLEGAL ALIENS are going to get $1,800 apiece as well as all the nations that will be receiving aid that should be going directly to the American people.
  63. 2020 Wednesday A: Regarding the preceding section, progressives in the House and Senate back Donald J. Trump on wanting more money for the American people.  House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi urges the 45th president to force the GOP to up the ante going to the American people as relief/stimulus to $2,000 per adult.  However, the decrepit, angry old bag won’t cut the pork so apparent in the bill out and throw it in the wastebasket. 
  64. 2020 Wednesday B: ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden shares an uplifting message with the nation, that ‘our darkest days lay ahead.’  They sure do, IF YOU are in the White House because you are in the pocket of Xi Jinping, you worthless POS.  NOT OUR PRESIDENT!  Speaking of ‘Beijing Biden,’ he says the ‘Russian hack is not under control and that President Donald J. Trump must do something about it NOW.’  Vladimir Putin says in reply, there will be ‘nothing good’ under a “Pro-China Joe” Biden administration (says one communist to another).   Elsewhere, New York City- under the control of stoned moron Mayor Bill Di Blasio- leads the nation in population loss as more people abandon the dying city for greener pastures in other parts of the country.
  65. 2020 Wednesday C: British Prime Minister Boris Johnson- BoJo to his friends and family- eyes greater lockdowns on the British people using the NEW STRAIN of the Chi-Com bat flu as his excuse.  Speaking of Great Britain, Brexit is not going well because the Xi Jinping Virus has slowed down talks between the UK and the EU.  Go figure.  Regarding the Wuhan Virus Crisis, Pfizer says it will supply the U.S. with another 100,000,000 doses of its Kung Flu vaccine by July 2021.  Next, Google says it warned scientists NOT to share information on race, gender, and facial analysis operations conducted at the corrupt search engine giant, one run by a Punjabi POS named Sundar Pichai.  The man and his family should face immediate deportation.
  66. 2020 Wednesday D: Georgia Republican Congressman Jody Hice, 10th congressional district, says that Senate Majority Leader (and noted RINO) Mitch McConnell, KY, must tell senators to get aboard with the upcoming challenges to the presidential election next month.  Flabby old Mitch- married to the daughter of a Chi-Com shipping tycoon does not seem to want to stand by his president but would rather move on.  Good for you, congressman.  Speaking of Georgia, Republican Governor Brian Kemp says a report will be forthcoming regarding the state’s signature audit results.  We shall see.   Elsewhere, the corrupt FBI says that Iran is the party responsible for encouraging violence against politicians who denied there was any election fraud.  Hmmm…someone wants to get nuked!
  67. 2020 Wednesday E: Last week, there were 803,000 new jobless claims.   Meanwhile, FHFA- the Federal Housing Finance Agency- housing prices went up by a whopping 10.2-percent compared to last year.  Speaking of which, housing prices rose 3.1-percent in the 3rd quarter, UP 7.8-percent over last year.  Meanwhile, a blast of unknown origin in a multi-story building in Baltimore, Maryland, injures 21 and collapses the roof.  Authorities are investigating…
  68. 2020 Wednesday F: The UN Human Rights Office blasts Trump for having pardoned four U.S. military contractors employed by Blackwater Worldwide doing time in a federal prison for having whacked numerous Iraqi ‘civilians’ in a free fire incident back in 2007 during the war in that s-hole country.  What happened in Baghdad’s Nisoor Square was an assault on a convoy which lead to the contractors fighting back.  Given sentences of 12 years to life, they should NEVER have been in prison in the first place, morons.  Get the U.S. out of the U.N.
  69. 2020 Wednesday G: It’s official: Andrew Yang is going to run against highly unpopular New York City Mayor Bill Di Blasio for his seat.  We think Yang might be the guy.  Although a liberal, he has common sense and business knowledge.  Everyone HATES Di Blasio, and we suspect he will be out on his butt cheeks.   Elsewhere, we are sad to say that we heard of the passing of Chef Brian’s second wife, Kay Langer Carrick.  She passed away last night.  Rest in peace, Kay, rest in peace.
  70. 2020 Wednesday H: Here are the latest stats for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, straight out of the fetid bowels of the world’s lone communist semi-superpower: 78,551,622 confirmed cases, UP by 749,901 cases, 1,727,556 confirmed deaths, UP by 14,447 deaths, and 44,225,515 confirmed recoveries, UP by 330,612 recoveries from yesterday’s figures.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 18,609,072 confirmed cases, UP by 211,892 new cases, 329,172 confirmed deaths, UP by 3,556 new deaths, and 8,225,571 confirmed recoveries, UP by 90,156 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt POSs).  Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 384,728 confirmed cases, 3,141 confirmed deaths, and 351,780 confirmed recoveries.
  71. 2020 Wednesday H: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 1,968,430 confirmed cases, 23,284 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 20,749 confirmed cases, 285 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION OF confirmed recoveries anymore- what is up with YOU, Gov. Ige, you Democrat hack.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 232,284 confirmed cases, 3,214 confirmed deaths, but like California, the gorilla-faced governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, Michigan, where that dingbat governor Gretchen Whitmer rules with an iron fist: 508,449 confirmed number of cases, 12,415 confirmed deaths, and sadly, no mention of the confirmed number of recoveries- thank you.   Speaking of the Yellow Fever 2020, the ignoramus homicidal governor of New York- Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo is whining and sniveling that his fellow Democrats in the nation’s capital are not sending him MORE COVID-19 Chi-Com Bat Flu Virus relief dollars he can stuff into his pockets.  As President Gerald R. Ford said to New York City in 1975 when they were begging for a federal government bailout to save them then, “DROP DEAD.”
  72. 2020 Wednesday I:  2020 Wednesday E: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,128.83, UP 114.32 points (+0.38%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,771.11, DOWN 36.80 points (-0.29%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,690.01, UP 2.75 points (+0.75%).  The price of GOLD is $1,877.30 per troy oz., -0.80 (-0.04%) while the price of SILVER is $25.78 per troy ounce, -0.146 (-0.56%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,019.50 per troy oz, +2.40 (+0.24%) while the price of COPPER is $3.55 per pound, -0.006 (-0.17%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,339.10 per troy oz, +16.00 (+0.69%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $47.95 per barrel, -0.17 (-0.35%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.54 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.04.
  73. 2020 Wednesday J: President Donald J. Trump continues with more pardons and sentence commutations today, 25 at last count.  Charles Kushner, son-in-law Jared Kushner’s father, friend Roger Stone, former campaign manager Paul Manafort, among others.  Leftist hack and serial abuser of those whom he is investigating- Andrew Weissman- the so-called ‘pit bull’ of Robert S. Mueller III is screeching like a banshee that President Trump is abusing the pardon system.  Wah, wah, wah.  Hopefully, we see you in an orange jumpsuit one day, Mr. Weissman, POS.
  74. 2020 Wednesday K: Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto #3519 with a $17 million jackpot at stake: 01, 12, 15, 23, 33, and 19.  Out 101,365 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers for a prize of $18,133 apiece.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #805 with a $321 million jackpot up for grabs: 06, 13, 38, 39, 53, and Power 06.  Out of 108,248 winning tickets, the highest winners were 54 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $539 apiece.
  75. 2020 Wednesday L:  Famed hard-rock guitarist Leslie West who fronted the band, Mountain[x] for decades, died from cardiac arrest in Palm Coast, Florida, at the age of 75.  West also played with a slew of other bands, adding his world-famous chops to a variety of wonderful hard rock albums.  We hope you will seek the music of this legendary performer out and consider adding it to your ever-growing collection of life-altering music.
  76. 2021 Thursday: Please stick around to discover what the Chi-Coms and all their tools are up to today- you know they are up to something seeing as how they have their Democratic stooges in the U.S. to carry out their orders… meanwhile, we have Thursday Night Football this evening with a matchup of the rejuvenated San Francisco 49ers visiting the feisty Tennessee Titans.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album delivered by Fairport Convention was a ‘blast from the past,’ culled by an archivist: “From Cropredy to Portmeirion” (03-18-2002), an album of live music from 1990.  The band included virtuoso Maartin Allcock (guitars, mandolins, and the bouzouki), Ric Sanders (violins), Dave Pegg (acoustic and electric basses, and tenor mandola), Simon Nichol (guitars), and Dave Mattacks (keyboards, drums, and percussion).  It is amazing- and extremely enjoyable- to envision each of these performances with your mind and ears.  We love it, we know you will love it, too, and you can find it at almost every site specializing in classic rock/folk rock music such as Amazon, Discogs, AllMusic, eBay, you name it, it’s available.  We hope you do check it out as we believe you will love this band as much as we do.  Enjoy.

Wednesday, December 23, 2020, Today in History:

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


Thursday, December 23, 2021:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.  This presentation included the Jefferson Starship, too, of which, the artist was NOT a member.

[ii] We promoted the music of Hot Tuna beginning on Tuesday, 24-April-2012 through Thursday, 23-May-2012.

[iii] We promoted the music of Spooky Tooth, Mott the Hoople, and Widowmaker- among other interconnected bands beginning on Friday, 25-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We hope you will check out this collection of great rock music.  Even the worst albums among them beats the crap out of any bull crap music one hears today.

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

[v] We promoted the music of King Crimson, one of the greatest prog-rock bands of all time beginning on Monday, 20-October-2014 through Sunday, 21-December-2014.  We hope you will check them out as the remain active to this day.

[vi] We promoted the music of Genesis, as well as of the individual members, beginning on Tuesday, 02-April-2019 through Sunday, 15-September-2019.  We hope you will check them out and enjoy. 

[vii] We promoted the First Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award in 2018 and in 2019, we are working on the Second Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award.  Beria was a scumbag, a murderer, a rapist, someone who did the dirty work of his boss, Josef Stalin, and took extraordinary pride in doing much of it himself.  The award determines who most deserves similar treatment- kidding, folks, just kidding, as what Beria dished out in his heyday, lead to the back of the head in the bowels of the Lubyanka Prison.  This is a humorous award so please do not get your panties in a wad.

[viii] We look forward to promoting the music of the archetypal American rock band, the Beach Boys, sometime within the next five years or so.  Please keep posted for that day.  Thank you.

[ix] If we are still alive and doing the blog in 20 years or so, we hope to get to the infamous Pussy Riot.  You go, girls, you go, keep speaking out against the dictatorial scum trashing your country.

[x] We began promoting the music of Mountain beginning on Friday, 14-December-2012 through Sunday, 20-January-2013.  This also included West, Bruce & Laing but sadly, we overlooked Leslie West’s solo career so please stay tuned for his discography sometime in the next 8-12 years.

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

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

  56. 2020 Tuesday: In a move that surprised everyone, California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom, aka Silver Spoon, aka Nancy Pelosi’s nephew, appoints California Secretary of State Alex Padilla to fill the seat of ‘Vice President-elect’ Kamala Harris who- if she assumes office- will step down from the seat.  Padilla will have to run in 2022 should he fill her seat.  He would become the first Latino senator from the Golden State.  Many suspected that Governor Newsom would appoint himself to fill the Harris seat because it is clear he is going to go down in next year’s recall election.  It would be the only way he would ever make it to a national office.
  57. 2020 Tuesday A: Jared Kushner joins a planeload of Israelis for the first flight from Israel to Morocco, the fourth nation to establish or resume normalized relations with the Jewish state.  Next, the hardcore left BLASTS House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi for caving on the COVID-19 Relief Bill.  She held this up from well before the 2020 Elections last month until now agreeing to the same things she agreed to two months ago.  However, Rush Limbaugh reports all manner of giveaways to foreign nations, checks to illegal aliens and their families that are retroactive to the last Chi-Vi relief bill.  Coupled with $600 checks for each American and each illegal alien in the country (remember: the true estimate is between 30-to-60 million illegals within the fabric of the country) the illegals will receive $600 plus $1,200 for a grand total of $1,800 per each illegal alien.  WTF?  Time for a second revolution!
  58. 2020 Tuesday B: Holy Roller Pat Robertson says, ‘Trump should move on, forget about 2024.’[xi]  Loser.  Next, Rudy Giuliani says the Pennsylvania lawsuit is the first of many to come regarding fraud and corruption in the 2020 Presidential Election- the one the Democrats are attempting to steal.   Economic adviser to President Donald J. Trump, Peter Navarro, says the ‘stolen election is an example of brass-knuckles politics.’  Noted conservative author and speaker Patrick Buchannan asks a pertinent question: “Can democracy hold a dysfunctional United States together?’  Good question for which, we don’t have the answer.
  59. 2020 Tuesday C: A Gallup poll shows that “Pro-China Joe” Biden has 65-percent transition approval among Democrats.   Speaking of Sinophile Joe, he is going to nominate the head of Connecticut’s educational system- Miguel Cardona, a hardcore left-wing, Democratic-Socialist loser- to become his secretary of the Department of Education.  What can go wrong with this?   Speaking of the Chi-Coms, the Chi-Com air force joined forces with the Russians to fly joint bomber patrols over the Pacific Ocean.  Some say they were ‘surprised’ by this event, but we were not surprised and expect to see more of our adversaries join together to demonstrate a unified show of force.   Also speaking of the Chi-Coms, Beijing emplaces new visa restrictions on U.S. citizens entering their authoritarian country in what is seen as a tit-for-tat move.
  60. 2020 Tuesday D: Former New Jersey Governor and failed presidential candidate Chris Christie says, ‘he is leaving the door open to a run in 2024.’  Who is going to vote for you, you traitorous, RINO scumbag?  Certainly, NO one here.  Meanwhile RINOS are expressing mixed feelings if President Trump revives “The Apprentice” should he leave office following the corrupt election.  None of their business.  Speaking of the president, he is considering two pardons for two former GOP congressmen now doing time in federal prisons: Duncan Hunter, Jr. of California, and Steve Stockman of Texas.   Hunter was sent to prison in December 2019 for missing campaign funds while Stockman was sent to prison in November 2018 on charges of money laundering, mail and wire fraud, income tax evasion, and conspiracy, all charges related to a non-profit organization he had set up.  Many believe he was set-up and railroaded by liberal prosecutors and judges.
  61. 2020 Tuesday E: As COVID-19 cases continue arising in California, the state is desperately searching for additional nurses and doctors to handle the crisis, one caused by Governor “The Smiler” Newsom.  We learn, too, that 2020 has become the DEADLIEST year in U.S. history what with 3 million deaths from the Chinese Virus, homicides, suicides, accidental drug overdoses, and far too many other diseases left untreated because everything was diverted into dealing with the effects of the Kung Flu.  
  62. 2020 Tuesday F: Here are today’s Comrade Xi Pangolin-Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 77,801,721 confirmed cases, UP by 613,375 cases, 1,713,109 confirmed deaths, UP by 13,824 deaths, and 43,894,903 confirmed recoveries (once again, down from one week ago- something funny going on here), UP by 372,661 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 18,362,068 confirmed cases, UP by 278,922 new cases, 324,441 confirmed deaths, UP by 2,923 new deaths, and 8,135,415 confirmed recoveries, UP by 135,302 new recoveries.
  63. 2020 Tuesday G: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 1,945,841 confirmed cases, 23,023 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 20,423 confirmed cases, 282 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 230,743 confirmed cases, 3,186 confirmed deaths, but like California, the apelike 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, Tennessee: 534,019 confirmed number of cases, 6,269  confirmed number of deaths, and sadly, NO MENTION of confirmed number of recoveries.  Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there.  Here they are: 387,482 confirmed cases, 3,136 confirmed deaths, and 351,186 confirmed recoveries.
  64. 2020 Tuesday H: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,015.51, DOWN 200.94 points (-0.67%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,807.92, UP 65.40 points (+0.51%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,687.26, DOWN 7.66 points (-0.21%).  The price of GOLD is $1,869.10 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%) while the price of SILVER is $25.64 per troy ounce, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,011.50 per troy oz, +2.10 (+0.21%) while the price of COPPER is $3.52 per pound, +0.0035 (+0.10%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,323.10 per troy oz., +6.70 (+0.29%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $46.79 per barrel, -0.23 (-0.49%).  Today, COCOA is $2,555.00 per metric ton, +20.00 (+0.79).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.54 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.82 euros.  in other economic news, the more we learn about the bogus COVID-19 chi-vi relief bill, the more we learn it’s full of all  manner of bulls**t and crap.  president Donald J. Trump, veto this flipping bill.  tell mitch McConnell, that brain-dead hag Nancy Pelosi, crybaby chuckie, and even Kevin McCarthy to go suck a big one! no!  no!  no!
  65. 2020 Tuesday I: What we heard earlier is true: President Donald J. Trump issued full pardons to former Congressmen Steve Stockman, Chris Collins, and Duncan Hunter Jr. as well as George Papadopoulos who was singled out for special mistreatment as the doorway with which to enter the Trump campaign.  The president also issued a pardon to Alex van der Zwaan as well as commutations or pardons to others mistreated by the DEEP STATE APPARATUSES.  Pardon any-and-everyone in need of a pardon who might need a pardon.  Elsewhere, after a two-year-stint on the 15-member U.N. Security Council, Germany is leaving and its U.N. Ambassador Christoph Heusgen, going to retire.  The ambassador fought to fight to get two detained Canadians freed from communist China’s cruel grasp had the Chi-Com deputy ambassador to the U.N. Geng Shuang tell him, “Good riddance.”  Time to start nuking some Chi-Coms…
  66. 2020 Tuesday J: Corrupt prosecutors of the Southern District of New York are trying to get ahold of Rudy Giuliani’s emails so they can pursue him and the president.   They are seeking help from the Department of Justice so they can persecute- NOT prosecute- either President Trump OR the president’s attorney.  Meanwhile, the FREE INDEPENDENT NATION OF TAIWAN reports its first Chi-Com Virus case in 250 days.   Speaking of the Beijing Bat Flu, Dr. Tony Fauci received his vaccine today, saying it’s ‘safe’ and that ‘everyone should do it.’  We’ll see.  Ilhan Omar is mad at fellow Squad member AOC for rushing out to get her vaccine.  Elsewhere, President Trump signed an executive order that would permit Special Counsel John Durham to present classified intelligence from the CIA to a grand jury when he prepares his case against those who set the bogus Russian collusion scam investigation into motion. 
  67. 2020 Tuesday K: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1618 with a jackpot of $330,000,000 up for grabs: 29, 53, 56, 59, 67, and Mega 21.  Out of 117,883 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $15,651 apiece.
  68. 2020 Tuesday: One year ago today, here is where we were: as always, we encourage everyone to stick around and discover whatever the Chi-Coms, the Russians, the Canadians, the Iranians, and other garbage around the world are doing with their Democrat stooges in the U.S.  It’s always fascinating…
  69. 2021 Wednesday:  Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by Fairport Convention commemorated the band’s 35 years of existence, 1967-2002.  Aptly titled, “XXXV,” the album hit record store shelves on February 12, 2002, and featured an augmented lineup beginning with the core five of Simon Nichol (guitars, vocals, dulcimers, and piano), Ric Sanders (fiddle), Dave Pegg (bass, mandolins, guitars, and vocals), Chris Leslie (violins, multiple stringed instruments, and vocals), and Gerry Conway (drums and percussion).  Joining them on this endeavor were Ian Anderson (flute), Mark Tucker (guitars), Chris White (vocals), and a full horn section.  All 14 tunes on this amazing album latch onto one’s ears and thus one’s inner mind.  We hope you will seek this one out, give it a good listen, and enjoy- you will be glad you did.

Tuesday, December 22, 2020, Today in History:

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


Wednesday, December 22, 2021:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We hope to do the music of Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, as well as Alpert’s solo career, somewhere around 2035.  We hope you will remain with us.

[ii] We began presenting the music of the Animals, of Eric Burdon and the Animals, of Eric Burdon, Eric Burdon and War, and War beginning on Monday, 08-June-2015 and the presentation ran through Sunday, 02-August-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider making them a part of your listening pleasure.

[iii] We began promoting the music of Mountain beginning on Friday, 14-December-2012 through Sunday, 20-January-2013.  This also included West, Bruce & Laing but sadly, we overlooked Leslie West’s solo career so please stay tuned for his discography sometime in the next 8-12 years.

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

[v] We hope to promote the music of the Bee Gees within the next 3-4 years.

[vi] We promoted the music of the Small Faces, Faces, and a bunch more interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We encourage everyone to search out the music of the various bands in this collection so you can add them to your growing music collection.

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

[viii] Member of the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam.

[ix] Look for the Clash sometime within the next 5-10 years.  We know you will enjoy them.

[x] Speculation exists that Obama is gay because many of the people he put around him while in office were gays and some say during his university days he had a gay affair.  No one truly knows but he sure did a heck of a lot of stuff for the LGBTQIA+ movement.

[xi] We find it absolutely amazing to see who is a true man or woman of God and who is a hack, a religious-political hack.  Pat Robertson demonstrated today that he is a phony POS scumbag, someone who is a fair-weather friend and supporter.  Like Jimmy Swaggert and other phony Holy Rollers, this guy is a loser and should be kept at arm’s length by all future conservative politicians.

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

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

355. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, DECEMBER 21, 2021

2020 Monday: Speaking of the ‘Pope,’ he says- get this- that ‘vaccines made using aborted fetal tissue is ETHICAL.’ If there was ever reason to leave the Catholic Church, this is it. The vicar of Christ no longer represents the Holy Trinity but has shown his hand as Satan’s minion by his allegiance to the DEEP CHURCH. Time for the College of Cardinals to topple this Third World POS and to find a European to head the Church.

  55. 2016 Wednesday: The evacuation of civilians from eastern Aleppo in Syria continues as the United Nations announces it is going to establish a war crimes tribunal to punish those guilty of such crimes.  Good luck with that.   Elsewhere, Donald Trump announces he is going to nominate noted economist Peter Navarro to the White House National Trade Council.  Liberals go berserk because he is anti-China.  Not until 2020 would we learn just how many American politicians are in the back pockets of the Chi-Coms.  A shocking number.   President-elect Trump also chooses Carl Icahn- someone whom the left labels a ‘corporate raider’- as a special adviser on regulatory reform.  Of course, the leftists are upset…
  56. 2017 Thursday: Following President Donald J. Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, the United Nations- always taking the sides of the Palestinians- lights him up- verbally.   Meanwhile, the Red Cross announces that cholera cases in war torn Yemen now total 1 million.  It is a humanitarian disaster.
  57. 2018 Friday: In Ecuador, law enforcement and military personnel get their man when they track down FARC thug- Walter Arizala- criminal and drug trafficker- and kill him in a gun battle.  The authorities sought the POS for the murders of two journalists earlier in the year.  Elsewhere, in the Czech Republic, a mining disaster occurs when a methane explosion in Karvina claims the lives of 11 Poles and 2 Czechs.
  58. 2019 Saturday:  While House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi continues to hold her two articles of impeachment against President Donald J. Trump close to the vest, the White House thinks she is going to cave.   Meanwhile, RINO Republican former governor of Massachusetts says, ‘Republican senators will be voted out of office if they march in lockstep behind President Trump.’  Elsewhere, after a massive pile-up of 69 vehicles on a Virginia interstate highway, local officials close the road.  It is said that poor weather such as fog may have led to the mass collisions.  
  59. 2020 Monday: First, we learn that in Georgia, 1.3 million PLUS voters have early voted in the Peach State using the same corrupt Dominion Voting Systems machines with the same corrupt Democratic hacks running the run-off elections as ran the general election and with the same corrupt POS RINO Governor Brian Kemp and the same corrupt POS RINO Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger overseeing the process.  Do we expect either Senator Kelly Loeffler said to hold a 52-46 lead over communist NOI-loving scumbag Reverend Raphael Warnock or Senator David Perdue who is said to hold a 50-48 advantage over “Pro-China Jon” Ossoff to win?  We sure as heck don’t.   We expect fraud to win and to win BIG.
  60. 2020 Monday A: The NYPD caught 150 people early this morning at an illegal nightclub in the Big Apple.  Next, Utah RINO Senator Mitt Romney says, ‘the GOP has strayed from the importance of character.’  Mitt, STFU, please.  Meanwhile, Congress is said to have reached agreement on a $900 billion COVID-19 relief package for the American people which is purportedly close to where they started 2-3 months ago.  What is apparent is that neither House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi or Senate Minority Leader “Crying Chuck” Schumer wanted to help the American people.  Shame on them.   U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin says ‘$600 stimulus checks could be going out next week.’  Elsewhere, Congress agrees on a matter of significant importance: removing the statue of General Robert E. Lee from Statuary Hall.  Wow.  Our lives will be changed for the better!
  61. 2020 Monday B: The Trump administration cuts the size of the Arctic lands available to be auctioned off for natural gas development.   Elsewhere, Pope Francis promises Vatican employees that no one will lose his or her job due to the Chi-Com Bat Flu.   Speaking of the ‘Pope,’ he says- get this- that ‘vaccines made using aborted fetal tissue is ETHICAL.’  If there was ever reason to leave the Catholic Church, this is it.  The vicar of Christ no longer represents the Holy Trinity but has shown his hand as Satan’s minion by his allegiance to the DEEP CHURCH.  Time for the College of Cardinals to topple this Third World POS and to find a European to head the Church.
  62. 2020 Monday C: As Brexit begins to seem like it might actually happen, leftist Britons are scrambling to seek residence in Spain and Portugal.  Speaking of Great Britain, the U.S. says that ‘everything is on the table’ when it comes to enacting a travel ban on the UK due to the increasing cases of a new strain of the Chi-Vi.  People are sick all over Britain and sadly, there are some who are still naïve enough to believe that the Chi-Coms did not create this disease for use as BIOWARFARE against the globe.
  63. 2020 Monday D: Outgoing U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr lays out charges against the Libyan bombmaker whose handiwork brought down the Pan-Am flight over Lockerbie, Scotland, back in 1988.  The AG then says he has ‘no plans’ of appointing a special counsel to investigate Hunter Biden and the Biden Family.  What a disappointment you are, sir.  Meanwhile, a House panel subpoenas HHS and CDC representatives to testify regarding their ‘lackluster response’ to the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Seems like the administration did an excellent job.  
  64. 2020 Monday E: Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms attack President Donald J. Trump over his inference that they were behind the hacks and the spying.  Former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley says there’s ‘no doubt the Chi-Coms were involved.’  Of course, they were, it’s what they do.  Regarding the Chi-Com hacks, the U.S. Treasury Department says there are ‘no signs the communists caused any harm to the Treasury Department.’  Speaking of the CCP, we learn today that BIG TECH is launching an all-out blitz to influence the Biden administration into doing whatever it and their masters in Beijing want.   Proof of this is that the New York Times won’t touch the story of Chi-Com agent, California Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell, the man who attacked President Trump but who was schlepping a Chi-Com intel agent for five-plus years.  Wow.
  65. 2020 Monday F: As for the Beijing Bug, here are the numbers for the CHI-VI, you know, COVID-19 Chinese Bat Flu Virus Crisis, the pandemic they started but still try to blame on the U.S.:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 77,188,346 confirmed cases, +656,621, 1,699,285, confirmed deaths, +9,360, and 43,522,242 confirmed recoveries (again, this number has been readjusted DOWN from a week ago-something strange is occurring), +342,299.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Xi Jinping Bat Flu pandemic: 18,083,146 confirmed cases, up 283,477 from yesterday’s reporting, 321,518 confirmed deaths, UP 3,019, and 8,000,113 confirmed recoveries, UP 142,452.
  66. 2020 Monday G: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 1,910,120 confirmed cases, 22,820 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 20,291 confirmed cases, 282 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 227,122 confirmed cases, 3,170 confirmed deaths (for some unknown reason, less than last week’s count), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Pennsylvania, currently, they have 569,413 confirmed cases, 14,015 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries which seems to be the way of the world at present  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife have moved there: 374,760 confirmed cases, 3,099 confirmed deaths, and 348,107 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at another nation: Mexico: they have 1,320,545 confirmed cases of the CHI-VI, 118,2020 confirmed deaths and 978,002 confirmed recoveries.
  67. 2020 Monday H: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 30,216.45, UP 37.40 points (+0.12%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  12,742.52, DOWN 13.12 points (-0.10%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,694.92, DOWN 14.49 points (-0.39%).  Price of GOLD: $1,884.40 per troy oz., +1.60 (+0.08%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $26.48 per troy oz., +0.096 (+0.36%).  Price of PLATINUM: $1,012.60 per troy oz., -3.50 (-0.34%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,316.40 per troy oz., -55.60 (-2.34%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.58 per #, +0.0075 (+0.21%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $47.80, -0.17 (-0.35%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.55 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.82 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.95 Afghan Afghani.
  68. 2020 Monday I: Here is tonight’s Monday Night Football Matchup: (16) Pittsburgh Steelers, 17 (11-3) @ Cincinnati Bengals, 27 (3-10-1) Monday Night 5:15 P.M.  That’s right- NO mistake- the Bengals clobbered the Steelers with third-string quarterback Ryan Finley.  You go, kid, you go!
  69. 2020 Monday J: Here is where we were one year ago today: friends, stick around to discover what the Chi-Coms and their lackeys around the world are up to today- including the Democrats!  Also, we will share the scores of Monday Night Football’s matchup between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Cincinnati Bengals just as we will the stats for the Beijing Bat Flu.  Stick around.
  70. 2021 Tuesday: Stick around…

ENDNOTES:

Monday, December 21, 2020, Today in History Blog Post:   

Monday, December 21, 2020, Today in History:

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


[i] Modern-day Democrats claim this is the beginning of slavery and evil in the founding of America.  We say, “F**k them,” as they are- with the exception of our liberal, Democrat, or progressive members- are full of crap.

[ii] We began presenting the music of the Mothers of Invention and of Frank Zappa beginning on Monday, 21-January-2013 and concluded the presentation on Monday, 13-May-2013.  Please seek them out, we believe you will enjoy the music of this famed man and his band.

[iii] We hope to present the music of this foundational American rock band within the next 5-6 years.  Please stay tuned for further developments.  We thank you; we know you love the Beach Boys as much as we do.

[iv] We hope to promote the music of both the Band and its members sometime in the next 10-15 years.

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

[vi] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.

[vii] We shared the music of the Hollies with the world beginning on Monday, 29-August-2016 through Thursday, 03-November-2016.

[viii] 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.

[ix] This horrendous atrocity was committed by members of the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam.

[x] Once again, the atrocities committed in Mumbai were committed by members of the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam.  Evildoers.

[xi] Thank you, President Obama, this rule was a long time in coming as passengers kept inside planes on the tarmac due to overcrowding of aircraft at an airport risked going to jail if they tried to give up their seats and get the hell off the airplane.  Still, three hours is a long time to sit immobilized but far better than having to sit 8-12 hours.

[xii] We promoted the music of Iron Butterfly beginning on Saturday, 27-July-2013 through Thursday, 08-August-2013.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your ever-growing collection of rock music.  Nothing one finds today compares with the classic rock of old.  Throw out your Maroon 5 albums and go with the crème de la crème of the 1960s and 1970s.

[xiii] We shared the music of Deep Purple, Ian Gillan, Captain Beyond, Elf, and Rainbow beginning on Tuesday, 20-March-2018 and concluded this massive offering on Sunday, 14-October-2018.  Please seek out the music by all of these phenomenal bands.  All are fabulous.

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

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

70. 2020 Saturday E: Questions continue to arise over WHY California Democratic Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell is still in the House of Representatives much less on the House Intelligence Committee when more evidence of him a five-year-plus sexual relationship with a Chi-Com honeypot having continues coming to light. He must go. NOW!

Nuclear Security Administration (11) U.S. Energy Dept. and (12) three U.S. states.  Members of government are calling this an ‘act of war.’  We tend to agree; however, we believe the Russians, the Chi-Coms, the Iranians, and other human garbage around the world are acting in concert and they also hacked the U.S. Presidential Election to sow as much discord and confusion as possible.  Because of this, the U.S. Dept. of State announces that it is going to close the last two U.S. consulates in Russia as U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says, ‘it’s pretty clear that Russia was behind the massive hack.’

  69. 2020 Saturday D: In a humorous note, the Fake News Media is blubbering tears, criticizing the so-called ‘president-elect,’ “Pro-Chi-Com China Joe” Biden for closing access to them.  What the hell did you think you dumbasses?   Elsewhere, housing ‘experts’ want the eviction ban extended.  Good for them.  Regarding Chinese Virus-related problems, the GOP wants to bind Chi-Vi aid to limits on federal spending (there’s no money) which throws the outcome of the COVID-19 relief bill into doubt.  Allies of Chi-Com Joe Biden cry, “Foul!”  Speaking of the Wuhan Virus Crisis, the good old ‘Kung Flu,’ the Moderna vaccine has been cleared for emergency use in the United States which will spread the vaccine to greater numbers of people.   
  70. 2020 Saturday E: Questions continue to arise over WHY California Democratic Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell is still in the House of Representatives much less on the House Intelligence Committee when more evidence of him a five-year-plus sexual relationship with a Chi-Com honeypot having continues coming to light.  He must go.  NOW!  We also learn the Chi-Com ‘100-Year Plan’ is for them to bribe, buy, or blackmail everyone around the world who is in their way.  Time to start dropping some nukes, people!   U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says, “The Democrats are too cozy with the Chi-Coms.”  She’s right.

  72. 2020 Saturday G: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox, communist China’s gift to the world and a boon for Democrats who want to exercise their fascist skills in locking down people’s lives like California’s duplicitous closet pansy Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 76,126,125 confirmed cases, +1,617,691, 1,602,500, confirmed deaths, +11,762, and 42,963,631 confirmed recoveries (again, this number is less than reported a week ago), +361,393.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 17,629,293 confirmed cases, UP 177,126 from yesterday’s reporting, 317,534 confirmed deaths, UP 1,765, and 7,857,661 confirmed recoveries, UP 38,121.

Currently, they have 614,429 confirmed cases, 8,031 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor DeWine.  Let’s look at Israel’s stats now that Mo is living there: 372,886 confirmed cases, 3,074 confirmed deaths, and 345,589 confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of the Mao Zedong fever, Maryland and Virginia donate doses of the vaccine to Washington, D.C.
  74. 2020 Saturday: Folks, even though it’s Saturday, everyone knows EVIL never sleeps so stay tuned for whatever shenanigans the Chi-Coms, their allies in Canada, Iran, Russia, Cuba, Venezuela, North Korea, and in the Democratic Party in the U.S. are up to today.  Everyone knows whatever it is, it’s going be GOOD!

TODAY IN HISTORY, SUNDAY DECEMBER 19, 2021, BLOG POST #4,318

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

Saturday, December 19, 2020, Today in History Blog Post:   

Saturday, December 19, 2020, Today in History:

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


Sunday, December 19, 2021:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We began promoting the music of this legendary British blues-rock band, Ten Years After, beginning on Tuesday, 01-March-2011 through Thursday, 24-March-2011.  We hope you will check them out because their music is as important today as it was 50 years ago.  Their performance at Woodstock in 1969 made them megastars.

[ii] We shared the music of the Lovin’ Spoonful with the readership beginning on Saturday, 14-September-2013 through Tuesday, 24-September-2013.  At the time, we made the oversight of not sharing the music of John B. Sebastian with the readership, so we do hope we come back around to promoting him sometime in the next 15 years or so.

[iii] Not sure when we present this Canadian rock band, Loverboy, but we sure as heck hope we do sometime within the next decade because- say what you will about them- they are as exciting today as they were back in the 1980s.  Please remain vigilant for the day that we do.

[iv] We began promoting the music of both Procol Harum and Robin Trower along with Gary Brooker beginning on Monday, 16-March-2015 through Sunday, 31-May-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your growing music collection.

[v] We promoted the music of the Small Faces, Faces, and a bunch more interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We encourage everyone to search out the music of the various bands in this collection so you can add them to your growing music collection.

[vi] 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. 

[vii] See previous footnote.  

[viii] In 2019, enfeebled House Speaker Nancy Pelosi continues misleading the public that what President Bill Clinton was in trouble for was his ‘affair’ with White House intern, Monica Lewinsky.  Although that was questionable, he was in trouble for lying in the Paula Jones case as well as for suborning lying under oath in same which inevitable cost him big bucks as well as the right to practice law in his home state of Arkansas for a year.  Speaker Pelosi, STOP LYING to the American people, tell the truth or step down from office and go back home to crime-ridden San Francisco.

[ix] This guy is more of a murderous thug than even his father was.  Still President Donald J. Trump has attempted to bring him and his rat-shit country into modern times.  We shall see.

[x] In 2019 at this point, we are not sure as to whether she will give it, yet another goes or will remain along the sidelines talking shit.

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

  67. 2018 Monday: A new report arises noting the Russian propaganda efforts to sway media and election on social media are much more intense than previously thought, especially their attempts at swaying the views of African Americans.  Everyone knows the Russians are scum and continue doing this just as other nations do- including the U.S.  It is what it is.   Meanwhile, U.S. Prime Minister Theresa May is facing challenges to her leadership as Brexit continues moving at a snail’s pace.   Elsewhere, CBS News says terminated producer Les Moonves, caught up in #MeToo charges, won’t receive his $120 million payout as he leaves the network.  Sucks to be him…
  68. 2019 Tuesday: The run-up to the impeachment vote of President Donald J. Trump continues as Congressman Jaime Raskin, D-MD, sitting in for House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-NY, and ranking member, Congressman Doug Collins, R-SC, appear before the House Rules Committee to hammer out the terms under which the impeachment trial will occur in the U.S. Senate.  Meanwhile, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, blasts Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY, over his refusal to indulge the Democrat’s desire to call more witnesses noting that the Constitution says nothing about the Senate doing the work of the House.  The Senate serves as the jury in impeachment proceedings and nothing more.  F**k off, Chuck.
  69. 2020 Thursday: The U.S. government confirms the recent hacking of various departments.  Most believe it’s either Russia or communist China, possibly Iran.  Meanwhile, the House GOP urge President Donald J. Trump to veto the $1.4 trillion spending bill soon to come before him for his signature.  Elsewhere, director of national intelligence John Ratcliffe says the report on voter and election fraud will not be ready tomorrow as he once promised.  We will await its debut.

Milley meets with the Taliban to discuss the ongoing peace talks in Afghanistan.  Next, the Iranian government says they have ‘no doubts’ that Pro-China Joe Biden will not immediately rejoin the JCPOA.  Meanwhile, Vladimir Putin says the U.S. should extend the New Start Arms Control Treaty.  Putin also says he’s up in the air as to whether he will seek another term (yeah, right) in 2024. 
  71. 2020 Thursday B: One American News Network (OAN) reported late yesterday evening on the ties Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY, aka “Cocaine Mitch,” he has to communist China.  His wife, Elaine Chao, is the daughter of a Chi-Com shipping magnate and that the Chi-Coms gave “Cocaine Mitch” $1 million to help in his re-election campaign.  He and his wife apparently are extremely wealthy thanks to cultivation and investment by the Chi-Coms.  Although we have heard these rumors before, we now believe them to be the truth thanks to his pushing aside of President Donald J. Trump from almost after the 2020 Presidential Election.  Shame on you, Senator McConnell, shame on you.
  72. 2020 Thursday C: A recent Emerson poll reports that Senator Kelly Loeffler holds a 3-point lead over far-left, pro-Nation of Islam bigot the ‘Reverend’ Raphael Warnock in their Georgia run-off Senate race while her fellow Senator David Perdue is in a dead heat with pajama boy, Jon Ossoff.   Elsewhere, Google and parent company Alphabet are hit with their third anti-trust lawsuit over their abuse of market power.  Texas and nine other states are going after the corrupt entity, and we hope that they end up being broken up along with Facebook and Twitter.   Meanwhile, we hear that following Vice President Mike Pence holds the final confirmation count on January 6 in the U.S. Senate, he will then leave on an overseas trip. 
  73. 2020 Thursday D: Atlantic City is going to auction off the right to implode the former Trump Casino in that city.  Meanwhile, the Chinese Virus pandemic has caused 8 million Americans to fall into poverty over the last six months.  Elsewhere, due to redistricting beginning next year, political observers predict the GOP will recapture the House of Representatives in 2022.  That is, unless the Democrats use their fraudulent vote corruption and theft strategy, which many astute political observers such as we believe will cause the GOP NEVER to win another election ever.  Speaking of Democratic corruption, President Trump says thousands of dead people voted across Nevada in last month’s presidential election.  Might as well have added the illegal aliens, the felons, the incarcerated, the underage, the stupid, the ignorant, and the space aliens, too.
  74. 2020 Thursday E: Astronomers say they have detected radio transmissions from an exoplanet.  So far, astronomers have discovered more than 4,500 exoplanets orbiting other stars, but this is the first time they have discovered radio signals- or so they believe- coming from one of these planets.  Astronomers have reported the signals come from the Tau Boötes system, one that contains a binary star and an exoplanet.  They believe the emissions come from the planet itself.  The system if 51 light years from earth with a light year equaling approximately 6 trillion miles.  Quite a ways away, folks.
  75. 2020 Thursday F: President Donald J. Trump withholds $200 million in Medicaid money from California.   HHS Secretary Alex Azar will withhold the money over the state’s demand that insurers provide abortion coverage at taxpayers’ expense.   Meanwhile, the John Roberts’ U.S. Supreme Court rejects a Kentucky religious school’s desire to reopen despite the Chi-Vi lockdown.  Elsewhere, Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announces a statewide ballot audit. Next, California Democratic Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell keeps his lips zipped over his alleged lengthy ongoing affair with a Chi-Com MSS agent.   Finally, a Homeland Security Department watchdog blasts ICE for putting illegal aliens in solitary confinement and abusing them mentally.  Oh, boohoo, mojados, don’t come.

B. Pritzker.  
  78. 2020 Thursday I: Speaking of the Chi-Vi, states say Pfizer vaccine estimates for next week have been slashed.  Elsewhere, the FDA announces a study that may allow for homosexual and bisexual men to give blood donations, something that has never been allowed because of them spreading HIV-AIDS.  Finally, the CDC reports that drug overdose deaths in the U.S. over a 12-month period are the highest ever.  
  79. 2020 Thursday J: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,303.37, UP 148.83 points (+0.49%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,764.75, UP 106.56 points (+0.84%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,722.48, UP 21.31 points (+0.58%).  The price of GOLD is $1,885.20 per troy oz., -5.20 (-0.28%) while the price of SILVER is $26.02 per troy ounce, -0.166 (-0.63%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,044.30 per troy oz, -5.80 (-0.55%) while the price of COPPER is $3.64 per pound, +0.0405 (+1.12%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,347.50 per troy oz, -0.70 (-0.03%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $48.23 per barrel, -0.13 (-0.27%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.54 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.88.

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

[iv] Not sure when we will begin promoting the music of R.E.M. but look forward to doing so as they are awesome.

[x] We look forward to sharing the music of KISS by at least 2035.  We hope you will be with us at that time.

[xi] If we ever arrive at doing the music of Cat Stevens, it will be because we have done everyone else and are beginning to do country and folk music.  Please, stick around to see.

Bush selected retired General Colin Powell to be the first African American secretary of state.  Powell took the oath of office on January 20, 2001.
  52. 2001 Sunday: In Tora Bora, Afghanistan, tribal fighters announced that had taken the last al-Qaida positions, killing 200 of the scumbags in the operation and capturing 25.  They also announced that they had found no sign of the chicken-shit terrorist mastermind, Osama bin Laden.

  55. 2009 Wednesday: Time Magazine names U.S. Federal Reserve Chair Ben Bernanke its Person of the Year for ‘rescuing the U.S. economy from the Great Recession,’ one the Democrats created back in 2007 to devastate the Bush #43 administration in the hope that it would push a Democrat to power in the 2008 Presidential Election.
  56. 2010 Thursday: The Obama administration is fighting to push a Federal Anti-Gun Trafficking Ban through Congress but the National Rifle Association- NRA- is fighting tooth and nail to stop it.   Meanwhile, Veterans for Peace, an anti-war veterans’ group, is holding a protest outside the White House today.  President Barack Hussein Obama did, after all, promise he would ‘end wars.’

  63. 2017 Saturday: The Trump transition team accuses Robert S. Mueller of illegally obtaining campaign emails.  The Mueller investigation is obtaining ‘evidence of collusion between President Donald J. Trump and Vladimir Putin in unlawful ways.’  Since the evidence does not exist, it would suggest that the special counsel is manufacturing his own evidence.
  64. 2018 Sunday: With the threat of a partial government shutdown looming, the White House dug in on its demand for $5 billion to build a border wall as congressional Democrats stood firm against it.  Meanwhile, over increasing scandals, U.S. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke announces he is going to step down from his position.
  65. 2019 Monday: Congressional Democrats continued trying to find their collective balls to go into the House Rules Committee the next day so they could hammer out the rules for the impeachment trial of President Donald J. Trump.    Meanwhile, Democrats running for the nomination of their party are begging DNC Chair Tom Perez to change the rules for inclusion for the January and February debates.  The rules’ demand for polling and donation numbers to meet certain criteria is preventing many of them from being able to participate.   
  66. 2020 Wednesday: Texas wants to become the home of the U.S. Space Force Command.  Next, President Donald J. Trump doubles down on his claims of FRAUD in the 2020 Presidential Election which are becoming clearer and clearer by the day.  He says, “Bad things happened in the 2020 Presidential Election” and must be addressed.  He also told Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY, that it’s ‘too soon to give up on the election’ even as Mitch and his leadership are urging their fellow GOP senators NOT to contest the election in early January.  However, in January 2017, House Democrats interrupted the proceedings no less than ELEVEN times in their bid to stop Trump from becoming the 45th president and to secure the election for Hillary Rodham Clinton.
  67. 2020 Wednesday A:  The American Civil Liberties Union calls for a release of half of ALL inmates in U.S. prisons and jails because of the Chi-Vi threat.  They probably want all illegal aliens released, too.  Let’s deport them ASAP.  Meanwhile, federal prosecutors indict Canadian pervert Peter Nygard, a fashion designer, on multiple charges of sex-trafficking.  Hmmm, seems like we have a junior Jeffrey Epstein here.
  68. 2020 Wednesday B: The U.S. Senate Homeland Security Committee chaired by Ron Johnson, R-WI, and ranking member, Sen. Gary Peters (who was beaten by John James in November but who maintains his seat thanks to rampant voter fraud in his state), D-MI.  Witness Christopher Krebs, recently fired by President Trump still maintains ‘no signs of foreign interference in the election’ but that ‘fraud is a criminal matter.’  He also states that ‘rumor control is extremely important.’   Chairman Ron Johnson says the “GOP is not peddling Russian disinformation’ and tells his colleague Senator Peters ‘to stop lying, that all he does is lie and to stop spreading Russian disinformation, himself.’  Amen.  Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, then asks a question regarding ‘if non-legislators changing election laws without the involvement of state legislators is okay’ which everyone with half-a-brain or more knows is NOT.
  69. 2020 Wednesday C: Regarding the Senate Homeland Security Committee meeting on the rampant voter fraud that occurred in the 2020 Presidential and Senatorial elections, Christopher Krebs says it’s ‘important to use paper ballots so there is a paper trail which would have provided the necessary evidence as to whether there was cheating or there was not.’  Amen to that, too. We also learn that Pennsylvania was among the most corrupt states with more dead people, more illegal aliens, more multiple voters, more made-up voters, and more underage voters than anywhere else in the country.  Send Gov. Wolf to prison. 
  70. 2020 Wednesday D: In the same Senate committee hearings as outlined in the previous two points, Senator James Lankford, R-OK, says back in 2016, ’32-percent of the American people believed that Vladimir Putin and the Russkies interfered in the U.S. Presidential Election to help Donald Trump and to hurt Hillary Rodham Clinton.  We did hearings then so what is wrong with holding hearings now, especially when 75 million plus Americans voted for Donald Trump’ and as Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, says ‘are not going to just go away no matter how much Democrats want them to.’  Amen to that, too.  In 2016, Dems weren’t going to move on whereas NOW, they want everyone to move on and to embrace “Pro-China Joe” Biden and “Kooky Kamala” Harris as our next president and vice president.  F**k them.
  71. 2020 Wednesday E: Senator James Lankford, R-OK, also says that his state as were numerous others done with vote counting on Election Night as the country always has but look in amazement at other states STILL counting votes more than two weeks after Election Day and stating, ‘we don’t know how many ballots are left to be counted.’  Senator Lankford also points out to the Eric system- the Electronic Voter Information Center used by 30 states to monitor if people are voting more than once or in a series of places.  All states should be using this.  Senator Lankford also says that in HIS state, voter fraudsters are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law while in states with rampant voter fraud like Nevada has yet to punish anyone even with 42,000 dead voters having voted.  The Trump campaign witness and adviser Jesse Binall concurred that NO one has faced prosecution in the Silver State.
  72. 2020 Wednesday F: Regarding the election, Wisconsin Election Commission Director Meagan Wolfe calls for legislation for election reform in her corrupt state due to widespread irregularities across her state.  Meanwhile, President Trump wants a special counsel appointed to investigate Hunter Biden and perhaps his father.  Elsewhere, we learn that the Senate races in Georgia are tied- David Perdue v. Jon Ossoff and Kelly Loeffler v. Islamist ‘Reverend’ Raphael Warnock.  Mitch: we would be inclined to donate more cash to help the GOP candidates if you would stand with President Trump, you RINO POS.  Meanwhile, Cardinal Raymond Leo Burke says that ‘the Democrats are seeking a GREAT RESET in the United States with which to force Marxism down our throats.
  73. 2020 Wednesday G: National security adviser Robert O’Brien cuts his European trip short to rush home to deal with the ongoing Russian-Chi-Com-and-other foreign intel agents hacking into the U.S. federal government as well as taking down YouTube, Gmail, and Google.  Meanwhile, White House counsel urged President Trump not to fire POS FBI Director Christopher Wray.   Finally, Ken Starr will square off with Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg in a Texas court regarding Facebook’s interference in the 2020 Elections and the vast amounts of cash Zuckerberg dropped on various entities in the election ostensibly to help them in their efforts to (1) steal the elections and (2) to censor information favorable to President Trump and the GOP.  Send this punk to prison.  The Amistad Project is the source of the report on Zuckerberg.  Speaking of punks, it’s official, “Pro-China Joe” Biden names Mayor Pete Buttigieg to be his secretary of Transportation.   Princess, uh, Mayor Pete will become the first openly gay person to head a Cabinet position.
  74. 2020 Wednesday H: In other news, scientists suggest that kangaroos can learn to communicate with human beings.  We believe every creature on Earth is evolving but evolution is extremely slow, so no one truly notices it.  Next, Major-League Baseball finally does something it should have done decades ago and that is to elevate the Negro Leagues to MLB status so all records and information will become a part of MLB history.  God bless you!  Elsewhere, feel-good liberal Dodge City, Kansas, Mayor Joyce Warshaw resigns her post after claiming she has received ‘so much email and mail threatening her life over her support of a comprehensive mask mandate.’  Wah, wah, wah, STFU.   In other news, the dictator of Turkey- Tayyip Recep Erdogan calls sanctions emplaced upon his country because it bought a Russian defense system to be an ‘attack on his nation.’  Dude, you need to shut up and GO.
  75. 2020 Wednesday I: Internal documents released on the fly from the World Health Organization, the corrupt organization in the pocket of wannabe global dictator Xi Jinping, show that their distribution plan for release of the Wuhan Virus vaccine is doomed to fail.  Elsewhere, that ignoramus Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Sandy Cortez, aka Baby Evita, aka AOC, aka “The Fly,” says ‘both Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer need to go.  NOW.’
  76. 2020 Wednesday J: Here are the latest stats for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, straight out of Wuhan, China: 74,087,090 confirmed cases, UP by 1,865,456 cases, 1,646,687 confirmed deaths, UP by 34,673 deaths, and 41,893,773 confirmed recoveries, DOWN by 5,324,462 recoveries from yesterday’s figures- curious.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 16,961,262 confirmed cases, UP by 273,102 new cases, 308,762 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,280 new deaths, and 7,688,057 confirmed recoveries, UP by 203,304 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt POSs).  Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 360,630 confirmed cases, 3,014 confirmed deaths, and 338,784 confirmed recoveries.
  77. 2020 Wednesday K: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 1,671,081 confirmed cases, 21,481 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 19,590 confirmed cases, 278 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION OF confirmed recoveries anymore- what is up with YOU, Gov. Ige, you Democrat hack.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 212,488 confirmed cases, 3,084 confirmed deaths, but like California, the gorilla-faced governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, Florida: 1,155,355 confirmed number of cases, 20,480 confirmed deaths, and sadly, no mention of the confirmed number of recoveries- thank you.   Speaking of the Yellow Fever 2020, a healthcare worker in Alaska was given the vaccine injection and immediately began having harsh reactions to the drug and had to be placed into the hospital.
  78. 2020 Wednesday L:  2020 Wednesday E: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,154.54, DOWN 44.77 points (-0.15%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,658.19, UP 63.13 points (+0.50%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,701.17, UP 6.55 points (+0.18%).  The price of GOLD is $1,867.30 per troy oz., +8.20 (+0.24%) while the price of SILVER is $25.44 per troy ounce, +0.393 (+1.57%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,040.00 per troy oz, +4.60 (+0.44%) while the price of COPPER is $3.56 per pound, +0.005 (+0.14%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,348.20 per troy oz, +24.20 (+1.04%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $47.86 per barrel, +0.04 (+0.08%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.53 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.86.
  79. 2020 Wednesday M: Stay tuned for tonight’s Super Lotto #3517 Draw with a $14 million jackpot and the Powerball #803 Draw with $277 million up for grabs.  Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto first: 04, 06, 11, 12, 17, and Mega 09.  Out of 97,848 winning tickets, the highest winners were 26 people who had four numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $604 apiece.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball: 04, 23, 37, 61, 67, and Powerball 07.  Out of 95,182 winning tickets, the highest winners were 3 people who had four numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $15,585 apiece. 
  80. 2020 Wednesday N: Final news for the night: Fosun Pharma seeks to buy 100 million does of Biontech’s Chi-Vi vaccine for shipment to mainland communist China.   Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Senator Tom Cotton, R-Arkansas, is pushing a bill designed to punish Beijing for their annual $1 billion industry of forced organ harvesting from prisoners and members of religious groups.  No wonder the communists in Beijing HATE Senator Cotton.  The Stop Force Organs Harvesting Act would put the Chinese Communist Party thugs on notice that they must stop this egregious human rights abuse.  Elsewhere, Vice President Mike Pence will take the Beijing Bat Flu vaccine on live TV at the White House.  Particulars to come.  Finally, a federal court tells Ohio they cannot block trannys seeking to change their birth certificates to reflect their ‘identities.’
  81. 2020 Wednesday O:  Friends, this is where we were at one year ago today: we know the Chi-Coms, their lackeys Canada, Russia, Iran, Venezuela, Cuba, and other assorted Third World s-hole countries- as well as their stooges in the Democratic Party- are up to no-good.  Stick around to discover crimes they’ve committed today…         
  82. 2021 Thursday: Everyone knows the drill…stick around to discover the truth along with all of us- you will be glad you did.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Always working away, Fairport Convention knocked out their next studio album- “The Wood and the Wire”- on November 15, 1999.  Once again, the band features a revamped lineup of sorts: Simon Nichol (guitars, vocals, dulcimers, and piano), Ric Sanders (fiddle), Dave Pegg (bass, mandolins, guitars, and vocals), Chris Leslie (violins, multiple stringed instruments, and vocals), and Gerry Conway (drums and percussion).  No matter who exactly is in the lineup, the band always delivers the goods, and this album demonstrates it.  We hope you will investigate this album to your and if you find it as wonderful as we do, well, seek it out wherever you shop for the best in rock music.  You will enjoy it.

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

ENDNOTES:

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

[ii] We shared the music of the Hollies with the world beginning on Monday, 29-August-2016 through Thursday, 03-November-2016.  We encourage everyone to check out the music of this well-known British Invasion band. 

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

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

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!
