25. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, JANUARY 25, 2022

2021 Monday: First of all, it’s official: Janet Yellen is now the first female U.S. Treasury secretary. Congratulations. It really matters what is or what is NOT between your legs. We are proud. Next, the LEFT is celebrating ‘President’ Joe Biden’s ‘Catholicism’ which is strange because the man is a founding member of the Pro-Death Movement (aka Pro-Choice). IF Pope Francis were not such a leftist himself, he’d excommunicate the Satan-worshipping ‘46th president.’

  58. 2017 Wednesday: Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto says there’s ‘no way that Mexico is going to pay for ANY PART of the border wall between Mexico and the United States,’ the one promised by President Donald J. Trump.  Speaking of the 45th president, he signs two executive orders, one that strips funding away from sanctuary cities and states and the other to begin construction on the wall that Mexico ‘won’t pay for.’
  59. 2018 Thursday: The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists move the Doomsday Clock[v] by 30 seconds to 2 minutes to midnight, the closest it’s been since the 1950s.  The group is a left-wing group, and they are afraid of President Donald J.

  60. 2019 Friday: After 27 years of struggle- following the dissolution of Yugoslavia into its core parts, the Greek Parliament votes on whether to accept the Republic of Macedonia- a name with which, they took umbrage seeing as how Alexander was born in Macedonia- Greek Macedonia- and by a vote of 153-146 that the Republic of Macedonia changing its name to the Republic of Northern Macedonia is acceptable and can occur.  There you go.
  61. 2020 Saturday:  Comrade Xi Jinping calls for a special meeting of the Chi-Com Politburo where he discusses the spread of COVID-19 and the danger it poses to the people of China.   Of course, it originated in the Wuhan biomedical/biowarfare laboratory (although they would seek to blame the U.S. Army at a later date for bringing it into their country- a bogus claim but such are communists).   Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of State orders its consulate staffers to begin leaving communist China ASAP.
  62. 2021 Monday:  First of all, it’s official: Janet Yellen is now the first female U.S. Treasury secretary.  Congratulations.  It really matters what is or what is NOT between your legs.  We are proud.  Next, the LEFT is celebrating ‘President’ Joe Biden’s ‘Catholicism’ which is strange because the man is a founding member of the Pro-Death Movement (aka Pro-Choice).  IF Pope Francis were not such a leftist himself, he’d excommunicate the Satan-worshipping ‘46th president.’  Up next, ‘President’ Joe Biden ends the Trump era ban on trannys serving in the military.   Following that, ‘President’ Joe Biden steals Donald Trump’s ‘make American, buy American’ program and remakes it as his own.  Plagiarist to the end there, Joe.
  63. 2021 Monday A: In the Golden State in the city of San (“Lord when are you going to destroy me like You did Sodom and Gomorrah?”) Francisco, taxpayers are going to continue paying the upscale hotel fees for housing the homeless until September 2021 at the earliest.  And Governor Gavin Newsom why’s there now over 1 million signatures on his recall petition.  Speaking of our brave governor, he’s ‘seen the light and is rolling back stay-at-home-orders.’  Too late, Smiler, too late.
  64. 2021 Monday B: ‘President’ Joe Biden has decided to maintain his predecessor’s travel bans on numerous countries due to the rampaging COVID-19, aka the Wuhan Virus, and has added South Africa to the list.  Sounds ‘racist’ to us, there, ‘Mr. President.’  Speaking of the ‘usurper-in-chief,’ he’s facing bi-partisan pushback on his massive porkulus stimulus bill which is good.  $1.9 trillion is way too much money, especially when one considers the money is flowing east from Beijing to Washington, D.C., to pay for this plus the fact ILLEGAL ALIENS are getting stimulus checks, too.  Meanwhile, ‘President’ Joe Biden announces he is going to erase all student loan debt.  That is going to lead to loss of still more jobs and lenders going broke.
  65. 2021 Monday C:  Strange things are occurring in Washington, D.C., what with the Washington Monument suddenly going dark.  Investigators are investigating.  Meanwhile, the Democrats are ordering reviews of all police departments and military and National Guard units to root out ‘right-wing radicals.’  My, my, it’s okay to be Antifa, Occupy, BLM, or even the U.S. branch of Mao’s Red Guards but conservatives?  Oh, no, never.  Speaking of trash rioting in the streets, Tacoma, Washington, now is aflame thanks to cadres of Chi-Com-trained Antifa thugs running amok in the streets.  Governor Inslee, how about calling out the National Guard and squashing these insects.  Finally, to continue the aura that Washington, D.C., is under siege from Trump supporters, 7,000 National Guard troops- the ones who have been purified by the left- will remain in the city until sometime in March, AFTER the bogus second impeachment trial of an ex-president ends.
  66. 2021 Monday D: ‘President’ Joe Biden’s boss, Xi Jinping, warns the U.S. against an ‘outmoded cold war mentality.’  Okay.  Meanwhile, as Russia continues rounding up thousands of anti-Putin supporters of Alexei Navalny, the ‘Biden administration’ makes weak demands of the Kremlin to ‘let these people go.’  Putin does not even meet the U.S. ambassador in person and even worse, tells ‘President’ Biden NOT to meddle in the affairs of Russia.  Yikes.   Elsewhere, a recent study shows that the world’s ice is melting at a higher rate than it was 30 years ago; yet liberals continue buying beachfront homes.  What’s up with that hypocrisy?
  67. 2021 Monday E: COVID-19 pays good, folks: Dr. Tony Fauci, darling of the American left, pulls in the highest annual salary in the federal government: $417.6 thousand dollars per year.  How many times has this goof ball been wrong?  We’ve lost count.  Speaking of the Chi-Vi, an ABC ‘poll’ says that 69-percent of Americans approve of ‘President’ Joe Biden’s handling of the COVID-19 crisis.  What has he done that Trump didn’t do?  Biden says in his first 100 days, he was going to get 100 million doses out to the American people.  Now, he’s jacking it up to 150 million doses.  We shall see.  News reports are saying that there are many unexplained deaths surrounding people who have gotten the virus.  Not good.   Meanwhile, FEMA says it will reimburse SOME of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu’s costs to the states.  (Pssst- don’t reimburse Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo because that man is responsible for a genocide among seniors and the chronically ill in the Empire State).  Finally, while COVID-19 runs amok, the billionaires continue growing wealthier while the middle and lower classes continue growing poorer.  All by leftist design, social engineering, and pro-Chi-Com politics.
  68. 2021 Monday F: The U.S. Supreme Court ends anticorruption cases launched against former President Donald J. Trump.  Speaking of the high court, Chief Justice John Roberts says he will NOT attend the ‘second impeachment sham trial,’ which leaves the Democrats to elevate old fogey Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy to the dais in an unconstitutional trial.  Regarding impeachment, the Epoch Times says there are 29 GOP senators who are anti-impeachment and will make their presence known once the scam commences.   Also, Congressman Jim Jordan, R-OH, is rounding up a rapid-response squad to counter Democrat moves to impeach- a second, illegal time- former President Donald J. Trump.  Elsewhere, Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, is filing a countersuit against seven Democratic senators who tried to tie him and Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, to the Antifa-led Capitol Hill Riots of January 6 who tried to get him, and his colleague expelled from the upper chamber.  Finally, Senator Rob Portman, R-OH, says he won’t seek re-election.  
  69. 2021 Monday G: ‘President’ Joe Biden says he’s going to ‘expedite getting Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill.  Look, ‘Chi-Com Joe’ (we mean ‘President Joe’) why don’t you make a new bill, the $25 bill?  We have pushed that for a long, long time- since Barack Hussein Obama was ‘president.’  That makes more sense.  Meanwhile, the Instagram scandal over ‘President’ Joe Biden followers grows- hardly anyone is following the so-called 46th president on the White House feed so Instagram has been charged with forcing all users to follow ‘President’ Joe Biden’s White House feed.  Speaking of shams and scams, Twitter has launched a program called “Birdwatch” that will monitor misinformation on its site and online.  They are going to bust all manner of leftists spreading disinformation and misinformation.  Speaking of social media, the Trump Family regains some of their social media followers.   Rupert Murdoch slams liberal media for its ‘awful WOKE orthodoxy’ and yet, Fox News worked to defeat President Trump and to put a usurper in his place.  Shame.  Elsewhere, former UN Ambassador says the ‘media bears partial responsibility for some of the divisions’ affecting our country.
  70. 2021 Monday H: Mayoral candidate Andrew Yang, Democrat, says, “New York City must restore its value.”  Question is- is it too late?  Next, famed attorney Alan Dershowitz says he will America’s Mayor Rudy Giuliani to the ‘depths of his soul’ as the corrupt Dominion Voting System-election-stealing company out of a now hostile Canada seeks to sue the living bejezzus out of Mr. Giuliani over his battle to expose the Canadian scum for exactly what they are: criminals (or so we allege).  In other news, Budweiser says it’s NOT going to spend any money on commercials for the Super Bowl on February 7.   Meanwhile, Montana passes four bills limiting ABORTION.  Congratulations!
  71. 2021 Monday I: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 99,655,985 confirmed cases, +599,649, 2,138,251, confirmed deaths, +12,324, and 54,961,829 confirmed recoveries, +316,036.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 25,501,479 confirmed cases, up 127,128 from yesterday’s reporting, 425,429 confirmed deaths, UP 1,638, and 11,166,132 confirmed recoveries, UP 35,702.
  72. 2021 Monday J: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,200,931 confirmed cases, 37,349 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 (sill the same as it was a week ago- something is going on in Honolulu) confirmed cases, 342 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 304,617 confirmed cases, 4,182 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Maine: currently, they have 37,046 confirmed cases, 547 confirmed deaths, and 12,245 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 606,365 confirmed cases, 4,498 confirmed deaths, and 529,834 confirmed recoveries.   Speaking of the Wuhan Flu, MRNA says its Chi-Vi vaccine will protect against ALL variants.  Wow.  A miracle drug.
  73. 2021 Monday K:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,960.00, DOWN 36.98 points (-0.12%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,635.99, UP 92.93 points (+0.69%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,855.36, UP 13.89 points (+0.36%).  The price of GOLD is $1,853.90 per troy oz., -1.30 (-0.07%) while the price of SILVER is $25.40 per troy ounce, -0.089 (-0.35%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,098.00 per troy oz, -6.70 (-0.61%) while the price of COPPER is $3.62 per pound, -0.011 (-0.30%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,346.90 per troy oz, -18.30 (-0.77%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.71 per barrel, -0.06 (-0.11%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.11.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000030.  In other economic news, investment in U.S. space programs hits a record $8.9 billion in 2020.  We must return to the moon and make it to Mars before the Chi-Coms do.  Period.  Watch ‘President’ Joe Biden strip funding from NASA. 
  74. 2021 Monday L: DAY SIX OF THE BIDEN REGIME- stick around to find out what else ‘President’ Joe Biden is up to today.  Hmmm, his ‘boss’ House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, she of drooping Botox-drenched face, walked the Article of Impeachment against ex- (the REAL) President Donald J. Trump to the U.S. Senate where the obsequious, knuckle-dragging Senate Majority Leader Charles “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer received it.  Impeachment proceedings to commence the day following Super Bowl LV.   Look, “Botox Nancy,” you are 10 seats away from losing control of the House.  In the Senate, we expect Raphael Warnock and Mark Kelly will be gone in 2022, seeing as how they were ‘winners’ of special elections in states where the state GOP leadership worked on behalf of Democrats.
  75. 2021 Monday M: Acting U.S. Treasury Secretary Andy Baukol stepped down from office on this date.  He served under President Joseph R. Biden Jr., from January 20, 2021, until today.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Record labels being what they are, Sandy Denny’s label slapped together a second Fotheringay album years after her death.  Here is what said regarding the first effort: amazing vocalist Sandy Denny bolted the band to form a short-lived group, Fotheringay, a band we will cover because of her and Steeleye Span which we most likely won’t, concerned they may bear little to no interest for many of our readers even though they have a lengthy discography.  I guess we shall see.  Ah well, Fotheringay released their one and only album while Sandy was still alive, the eponymous “Fotheringay” that came out on June 28, 1970, and featured not only Ms. Denny, but future husband, Trevor Lucas (guitars, basses, harmonicas, and vocals), Jerry Donahue (lead guitar, vocals), Pat Donaldson (bass/vocals), Gerry Conway (Drums), and Linda Thompson and Todd Lloyd (vocals).  Thus, we now have “Fotheringay 2,” released on September 30, 2008.  If you love the English folk music the way we do as performed by Fairport Convention, Led Zeppelin’s acoustic material, the Strawbs, and other similar bands, this is an album that your ears should investigate as it does have its moments.  Please, seek it out, give it a listen, and see if it’s right for you- we think you will be glad that you did.

Monday, January 25, 2021, Today in History:  

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

ENDNOTES:

[i] We promoted the music of the greatest blues-rock-British-boogie band, Savoy Brown, beginning on Friday, 28-January-2011 through Monday, 28-February-2011.  Kim Simmonds is one of the greatest guitarists of all time which is why everyone should check the music of this fabulous band out ASAP.

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

[iii] Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is little more than a murderous thug who should have been droned in the same way we droned Gen. Qassim Soleimani, the terrorist POS who ran the Quds Force until Donald Trump wiped him out.

[iv] Many believe Barack Obama should be disqualified as a president because most believe he was born outside the United States which would ban him from ever seeking the highest office in the land.  At the very least, an asterisk should be placed by his name in all U.S. history books.

[v] The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists’ Doomsday Clock is a left-wing way to terrorize the citizens of the world whenever a conservative or Republican is president of the United States.  Pay no attention to these scumbags.

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!

2021 Tuesday I: The U.S. Department of Justice is probing ‘sedition conspiracies’ (they’re acting like this is somehow resembling the Civil War) surrounding the Capitol Hill 2021 storming last Wednesday, saying that somehow it is something we have never seen before. Folks, we were alive, well, and observant in the 1960s and the 1970s (and way before) and we remember the antiwar protests of those two decades. We also remember Puerto Rican communists attacking the Capitol…

  59. 2018 Friday: President Donald J. Trump’s White House physician, Dr. Ronny Jackson, declared him in “excellent health” after the president received his first checkup at Walter Reed military hospital.  Elsewhere, following the U.S. State Department cautioning U.S. citizens from traveling to Turkey due to arbitrary arrests and extended detentions over nothing, Turkey tells its citizens NOT to visit the United States.  Turkey used to be a decent country whereas now, they are a junior member of the Axis of Evil.
  60. 2019 Saturday: In the AFC Division Game, the Kansas City Chiefs blow out the Indianapolis Colts 31-13 to move to the AFC Championship Game while in the NFC Division Game, the Los Angeles Rams hold off the Dallas Cowboys 30-22.  Elsewhere, the federal government shutdown enters its 22nd day, becoming the longest shutdown of the government in U.S. history.  Of course, President Donald J.

Trump and Vice President Mike Pence announce that Trump will not be removed via the 25th Amendment or that he will resign from office before the end of his term.  Next, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy informs GOP House members that President Trump admitted ‘some responsibility’ for the Capitol Hill riots of a week ago tomorrow.  Elsewhere, discredited, and disgraced former FBI Director James Comey- fired by President Trump early in 2017 for being a corrupt POS- says, “Trump should be impeached but keep the TV cameras off him.”  Thank you for your opinion you scumbag.
  63. 2021 Tuesday A: Noted GOP megadonor and Las Vegas casino mogul Sheldon Adelson is dead at age 87.  Elsewhere, we learned today that bloviating reporter Jim Acosta of CNN is leaving the White House press corps for another gig somewhere else like maybe his own show?  That one won’t last long.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Treasury and State impose counterterrorism sanctions on FIVE individuals linked to the illegitimate Iranian government. 
  64. 2021 Tuesday C: The Trump administration is urging various states to expand access to COVID-19 vaccines which some states such as the Empire State- seem to be abusing.  A recent Axios/Ipsos poll says, ‘most Americans eager to get the coronavirus vaccine.’  Next, the Golden State says it’s planning to use sports stadiums as mass vaccination sites.  Meanwhile, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem says she will sign a bill banning abortions for Downs syndrome babies.  Elsewhere, Michigan says it’s going to charge former GOP Governor Rick Snyder with the Flint, Michigan, water crisis.
  65. 2021 Tuesday D: President Trump was in Alamo, Texas, today celebrating 452 miles of border wall construction with another 300-plus under construction.  He cited statistics of all the illegals stopped from sneaking into the U.S., the numbers of gangbanging thugs captured and deported, and the massive quantities of narcotics stopped from flooding into our country.  A report says, ‘border wall construction is making it easier for illegal aliens to slip into the U.S.’  Uh, okay, should we stop building the wall?  That would make it even easier for illegals to enter the country, right?  How stupid.   Meanwhile, the Trump administration also is trying to firm up the rules for asylum and refugee status before leaving office next week.
  66. 2021 Tuesday E: ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe” Biden’s pick to head the OMB- Neera Tanden- reaped more than $700,000 working for a nonprofit.  Looks like Old Joe is going with financial fraudsters like him and his family.  Uh-oh.  Elsewhere, Congressman Michael Waltz, R-FL, says that ‘Joe Biden must speak out against impeachment’ because it is a divisive issue.  Hot upon its heels, a McLaughlin poll says, ‘most Americans are opposed to another impeachment of the 45th president, especially when he will be leaving office in EIGHT days.  Meanwhile, Jared Kushner is briefing ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden’s incoming National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan.  Finally, President Trump recognizes that talk of impeachment is dividing the country and once again urges PEACE for his followers while also saying that BIG TECH is dividing the United States.’
  67. 2021 Tuesday F: Regarding the aftermath of the Capitol Hill Antifa-led riots last week, AT&T becomes yet another big corporation halting donations to ALL GOP congressmen-and-women who voted against the certification of the 2020 Presidential Election.  Next, the CEO of Parler- John Matze- says he’s getting numerous death threats over his stand for First Amendment rights.   Meanwhile, after calling for ALL GOP members to be placed onto the NO-FLY list, House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie G. Thompson, D-Mississippi, continues demanding for GOP Senators Josh Hawley, Missouri, and Ted Cruz, Texas, to be put on the NO-FLY list.  WTF, Congressman Thompson?  Elsewhere, Rep. Pat Fallon, R-TX, says that what is going on is ‘liberals gone wild.’ 
  68. 2021 Tuesday G: Derek Chauvin- the officer who kept his knee on the neck of George Floyd- will be tried separately from his three fellow Minneapolis Police Department officers.  Next, the FBI says it is investigating more than 170 separate cases related to last week’s Antifa-sponsored riots on Capitol Hill.  At the same time, we learn that a new plot to surround the Capitol has been foiled.   As if this isn’t bad enough, we receive warnings from the FBI of ‘armed protests in all 50 states are coming’ which sounds frightening, but we remember back in 2016 post the election and into 2017, there were anti-Trump protests from one end of the country to the other and we do not recall the FBI being terrified back then.  All we want is a little consistency!  Elsewhere, a federal judge halts the execution of the only woman on federal death row.  If Lisa Montgomery does undergo execution, she would become the first female in 67 years to undergo execution at the federal site in Terre Haute, Indiana.
  69. 2021 Tuesday H: The NHL says in playing for its fans, it’s going to lose billions of dollars unless things open up and soon.  Elsewhere, the Catholic League blasts the American Civil Liberties Union’s attacks on President Donald J. Trump’s First Amendment rights to free speech.  Meanwhile, CIA documents on UFOs have been compiled by a researcher and are awaiting release.  Finally, the Democrats are now looking into the 14th Amendment to find some way with which, they can drive President Trump from office before he’s scheduled to leave office a week from tomorrow.  What a bunch of maggots.
  70. 2021 Tuesday I: The U.S. Department of Justice is probing ‘sedition conspiracies’  (they’re acting like this is somehow resembling the Civil War) surrounding the Capitol Hill 2021 storming last Wednesday, saying that somehow it is something we have never seen before.  Folks, we were alive, well, and observant in the 1960s and the 1970s (and way before) and we remember the antiwar protests of those two decades.  We also remember Puerto Rican communists attacking the Capitol, it’s as though modern historians overlook the past, especially when LEFTISTS were the ones blowing things up, murdering police officers, threatening judges, and even members of Congress.  They must wake up and stop with the flipping propaganda already.  Enough is enough.  Meanwhile, Apple CEO Tim Cook calls ‘for accountability’ for the Capitol Hill, Antifa-led riots of last week.  Sadly, Walmart announces it’s going to HALT donations to Republicans who stood against the certification of ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden.  Wow.
  71. 2021 Tuesday J: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 91,383,544 confirmed cases, +658,733, 1,956,752, confirmed deaths, +15,609, and 50,537,895 confirmed recoveries, +370,814.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 22,797,730 confirmed cases, up 89,725 from yesterday’s reporting, 379,020 confirmed deaths, UP 450, and 9,915,571 confirmed recoveries, UP 14,936.

  73. 2021 Tuesday L:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,068.69, UP 60.00 points (+0.19%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,072.43, UP 36.00 points (+0.28%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,801.19, UP 1.58 points (+0.42%).  The price of GOLD is $1,855.80 per troy oz., +11.60 (+0.63%) while the price of SILVER is $25.66 per troy ounce, +0.225 (+0.88%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,078.70 per troy oz, +10.90 (+1.02%) while the price of COPPER is $3.64 per pound, +0.03 (+0.83%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,376.20 per troy oz, -2.60 (-0.11%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $53.33 per barrel, +0.12 (+0.23%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.78.
  74. 2021 Tuesday M: Humorous note for the day:  as Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer was crossing the street, hecklers barraged him with invective, calling him “Adolf Hitler.”  Now that’s funnier than s**t.  Meanwhile, U.S. Chamber of Commerce President Thomas Donahue lashes out at President Trump like other losers by trying to say that the president’s words last Wednesday are what set in motion an event- the Capitol Hill riots- that was prearranged to coincide with Antifa members storming the building.  We now know that several Capitol Hill police officers are facing questions as to WHY they pulled barricades aside and waved the angry left-wing mob into the building.  Elsewhere, the manager for actor Chuck Norris says, ‘his client was not present at Capitol Hill last week.’  Finally, a ‘civil rights group’ demands Google remove Donald Trump’s YouTube channel.  Wow.
  75. 2021 Tuesday N: The 18.1st Acting U.S. Transportation Secretary Steven G. Bradbury assumed his position on this date what with the resignation of the 18th U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao.  A Republican, Bradbury served under Presidents Donald J.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by guitar virtuosos, Richard Thompson, was a record he recorded in a small home studio with the use of his laptop computer: “Front Parlour Ballads” (August 16, 2005).  By this point, many music fans had passed him by seeking the newest pretty face or smart marketer.  Like Kim Simmonds (Savoy Brown), Leslie West (Mountain), Robin Trower (originally of Procol Harum), Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, and some others, Thompson maintained a strict following of veteran fans.  Although he did not expect to sell many albums, record sales actually became brisk which would propel him forward to future endeavors.  As always, the man writes songs with captivating licks, incredibly creative lyrics, and is joined by others to round out the sound.  He performs all instruments on this album with the exception of percussion instruments which friend, Debra Dobkin, performs.  We hope you will seek this one out wherever you shop for the absolute best in music and add it to your collection- you will be extremely glad you did.

  59. 2020 Monday: At the Golden Globes, actress Michelle Williams celebrates her abortion before a likeminded crowd of liberal losers and activists.  What the hell is up with the Pro-Death movement?  Killing the unborn is the most sadistic, evil thing one can do.  Yet, these pro-Satanists celebrate it like they’re killing cockroaches.  Shame.  Meanwhile, U.S. Senator Kelly Loeffler enters the world’s greatest deliberative body on today’s date representing the Peach State.  Elsewhere, ever-disloyal John Bolton says, ‘I’m willing to testify at President Donald J. Trump’s impeachment trial.’  Perfect example of a Deep State apparatchik.   
  60. 2021 Wednesday: Millions of patriots arrived in the nation’s capital today to support President Trump.  The president spoke to them and rallied the crowd.  Then, the certification of the 2020 Presidential Election began today.  Disputes arose early over the first state in question- Arizona- which sent both chambers of Congress to debate the election fraud.  Of course, the RINOs and their Democratic Party taskmasters say, ‘NO election fraud occurred’ while the country understands that ‘yes, indeed, loads of fraud did occur and needs to be addressed.’  Even California’s 55 electoral votes are being called into question due to millions of illegal aliens voting.  Finally, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, called for an ‘emergency 10-day audit of the election’ saying BOTH parties should welcome such an audit, so their voters accept the election results.
  61. 2021 Wednesday A: Next, as the chambers were debating Arizona’s election results, the crowd marched to the Capitol Building.  Then, a segment of the crowd erupted into violence and stormed the building itself sending lawmakers and their staffs into the basement for security.  We heard of gunshots having occurred inside.  Folks, it is clear that the LEFT is pulling out ALL stops here and have infiltrated the peaceful protesters with Antifa and Black Lives Matter human refuse.  People screaming, “TRUMP WON,” and other things favorable to the president to give the impression it’s his people doing the rioting.  This is straight out of Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” and it’s clear that the Democrats are behind all of this so they can continue the narrative that ‘President Trump is launching a coup.’  What a flipping mess but you must give the Democratic-Socialists credit as they know how to cause mob violence, misdirect blame, and topple elections.  Our country is in trouble.
  62. 2021 Wednesday B: It appears that BOTH Democrats won the Senate races in Georgia: Reverend Raphael Warnock with a count of 2,230,231 (51%) to 2,176,048 (49%) for Senator Kelly Loeffler.  As for Jon Ossoff, numbers show 2,211,603 (50%) votes to 2,194,578 (50%) for Senator David Perdue.  Of course, counting continues but we know the score.   Meanwhile, Georgia Democrat Congressman Vernon Jones says he is going to leave the Dems and become a Republican.
  63. 2021 Wednesday C: Facebook is ordered to pay nearly $5 million in fines for having stolen an Italian app.  Next, Samsung’s profits for the fourth quarter are expected to rise by one-third.  Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms arrest 50-plus pro-democracy activists in Hong Kong following the recent passage of their criminal national security law.  Meanwhile, Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts says workers at meat processing plants will be the next in line to receive the vaccine for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Finally, a UK judge denies WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange bail.    
  64. 2021 Wednesday D: Stick around for the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3523 with a $9 million jackpot up for grabs and the Powerball Draw #809 with a $410 million jackpot up for grabs.   First, here are the results for the Super Lotto drawing: 04, 29, 33, 34, 44, and Mega 21.  The highest winners were 13 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $1,448 apiece.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball drawing: 01, 20, 22, 60, 66, and Powerball 03.  the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $29,944 apiece.
  65. 2021 Wednesday E: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 86,752,314 confirmed cases, +556,758, 1,875,320, confirmed deaths, +11,667, and 48,637,236 confirmed recoveries, +227,332.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 21,208,840 confirmed cases, up 34,415 from yesterday’s reporting, 359,845 confirmed deaths, UP 501, and 9,595,733 confirmed recoveries, UP 45,568.
  66. 2021 Wednesday 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: 2,511,795 confirmed cases, 27,462 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 22,527 confirmed cases, 289 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 263,713 confirmed cases, 3,611 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Maryland: currently, they have 292,904 confirmed cases, 6,132 confirmed deaths, and 9,391 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 393,712 confirmed recoveries.  Here’s a laugh: Beijing stooge, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus of the World Health Organization is ‘upset’ with the Chi-Coms because they won’t permit this flunky to enter their country to investigate the outbreak of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.
  67. 2021 Wednesday G:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,829.40, UP 437.80 points (+1.44%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,740.79, DOWN 78.17 points (-0.61%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,748.14, UP 21.28 points (+0.57%).  The price of GOLD is $1,924.90 per troy oz., +16.30 (+0.85%) while the price of SILVER is $27.40 per troy ounce, +0.353 (+1.31%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,113.70 per troy oz, +3.50 (+0.32%) while the price of COPPER is $3.66 per pound, +0.0125 (+0.34%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,448.10 per troy oz, -45.30 (-1.82%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $50.51 per barrel, -0.12 (-0.24%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.81 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.67.
  68. 2021 Wednesday H: “Pro-China Joe” Biden says he will nominate Judge Merrick Garland to be his attorney general.  Meanwhile, liberals are pushing for U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer to retire.   Speaking of liberals, Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, D-MN, says she is drafting articles of impeachment against President Donald J. Trump.  Finally, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi drafted new rules to squelch GOP attempts at getting answers for the fraudulent 2020 Presidential Election. 
  69. 2021 Wednesday I: World leaders condemn ‘assault on democracy’ at the U.S. Capitol Building.  Elsewhere, Beijing slams ‘U.S. bullying’ over Trump’s ban on some 8 Chi-Com ‘money-gathering’ (intelligence-gathering if you must know) apps popular in the U.S. and around the world.  Speaking of hackers and intelligence gathering operations, the Department of Justice says its ‘emails were breached by the SolarWinds hack.’   Meanwhile, some GOP senators now plan to withdraw objections to certification of the 2020 Presidential Election following the mob violence outside the capitol.  How convenient.  It is like Senator Tom Cotton, R-Arkansas, saying that what happened today was bad and that ‘violence should never occur.’  Yet, no one wants to admit the truth: Antifa insinuated themselves into the Stop the Steal protesters and once at the Capitol Building ran amok, leading to two shootings and one death.  
  70. 2021 Wednesday: Today is the day when we believe all hell is going to break loose in Washington, D.C., as the Electoral College results are certified or not.  Let us hope brave politicians of both parties will fight to keep America free and independent and not a satellite state of the fricking Chi-Coms.

  49. 2016 Monday: Israel says they are NOT going to honor the U.N. resolution condemning ‘illegal settlements’ by Israelis on Israeli soil.  Good for you.  Meanwhile, in a curious move that would make no sense until later, outgoing President Barack Hussein Obama signs the National Defense Authorization Act or the NDAA, that provides $619 billion for military purposes but also establishes an Anti-Propaganda Center. 
  50. 2017 Wednesday:  As Democrats continue spreading lies about the tax bill signed yesterday by President Donald J. Trump, they plan to use their phony version of it as a way of winning big in the 2018 Mid-Term Elections.  What a bunch of scum.  They claim that the tax law will harm charitable donations not that Democrats know anything about giving to charity because stats show conservatives with a strong belief in God donate to charity way more than leftists who believe in Marx and Engels.
  51. 2018 Thursday:  President Donald J. Trump makes a Christmas visit to a U.S. military base in Iraq where he receives an extremely warm welcome from U.S. servicemen-and-women.   The Fake News Media points out that this is ‘his first trip to a war zone since coming to office two years ago.’  Wah, wah, wah.  Meanwhile, President Trump says the government shutdown could continue quite a while due to the Democratic Party’s intransigence in refusing to fund the BORDER WALL separating the United States from chaos, anarchy, and violence.

  53. 2020 Saturday: A federal judge delays sentencing in the case of former FBI lawyer, Kevin Clinesmith who lied in the Trump-Russia Collusion Hoax the Democrats concocted to eliminate Mr. Trump.  We suspect the court is awaiting the outcome of the January 5 Electoral College vote in the U.S. House of Representatives.  Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms are poised to leapfrog the U.S. to become the lone global superpower by 2028.  Elsewhere, federal, state, and local law enforcement continues to search for the culprits behind the Christmas Day RV explosion in downtown Nashville, Tennessee.  If they have suspects in mind, they are remaining mum for the time being.
  54. 2020 Saturday A: The Pennsylvania lawmakers who have met with President Donald J. Trump say the ‘president is resolved in contesting the 2020 Election results.’  Meanwhile, U.S. officials deny they evacuated the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad’s Green Zone over threats of attack.  Elsewhere, Japan urges ‘Pro-China Joe” Biden to remain strong on defending Taiwan, calling it a ‘red line’ the Chi-Coms should not cross.  IF Biden does become president, we expect the Chi-Coms will move against FREE China within six months.
  55. 2020 Saturday B: The CARES Act unemployment benefits expire today.  Meanwhile, the COVID-19 Relief Bill arrives at Mar-a-Lago in Florida for the president’s signature.  Elsewhere, we learn that former British double agent George Blake dies in Moscow at age 98 on this date.  Finally, the mayor of Miami, Florida, is doing his best to woo New York Wall Street banks to relocate to his state where there are no income taxes and freedom to operate.  That would be amazing.
  56. 2020 Saturday C: 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: 80,1229,602 confirmed cases, +463,077, 1,755,940, confirmed deaths, +70,225, and 45,338,147 confirmed recoveries, +405,622.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 19,103,992 confirmed cases, UP 164,718 from yesterday’s reporting, 335,265 confirmed deaths, UP 1,663, and 8,320,845 confirmed recoveries, UP 16,541.
  57. 2020 Saturday D: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 2,072,665 confirmed cases, 23,983 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 20,888 confirmed cases, 288 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 237,689 confirmed cases, 3,268 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state- Arizona. Currently, they have 393,041 confirmed cases, 8,424 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Ducey.  Let’s look at Israel’s stats now that Mo is living there: 398,664 confirmed cases, 3,210 confirmed deaths, and 359,816 confirmed recoveries.
  58. 2020 Saturday E: We have three NFL games today: (2) Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 47 (10-5) @ Detroit Lions, 7 (5-10) Saturday 10:00 A.M.  Next, (3) San Francisco 49ers, 20 (6-9) @ Arizona Cardinals, 12 (8-7) Saturday 1:30 P.M.  Tonight’s game: (4) Miami Dolphins, 26 (10-5) @ Las Vegas Raiders, 25 (7-8) Saturday 5:15 P.M.  In addition to this, we will also have results for tonight’s Super Lotto and Powerball draws.  Here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3520 with a jackpot of $18 million up for grabs: 04, 06, 16, 19, 32, and Mega 02.  Out of 97,179 winning tickets, one person won the jackpot of $18,000,000.  The jackpot ticket was bought at the Café Paradise in San Jose, CA, 95111.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #806: 10, 24, 27, 35, 53, and Powerball 18.  Out of 102,257 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $114,230.
  59. 2020 Saturday:  Here is where we were, the day after Christmas and as you know, neither the Democratic Party OR their bosses in the Chinese Communist Party ever sleep so please stay tuned to see what the scum is up to today.  We support President Donald J. Trump, Trump won the election, NOT Beijing Biden!
  60. 2021 Sunday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album delivered by Fairport Convention was yet another ‘blast from the past,’ culled by band member, Dave Pegg: “The Airing Cupboard Tapes 71-74” (08-16-2002), an album of live music from 1990.  The lineups feature Sandy Denny (vocals, guitar), Richard Thompson (lead guitars), Simon Nichol (guitars, vocals), Dave Pegg (basses, mandolins, vocals), Dave Swarbrick (fiddle, mandolins, vocals, and viola), and Dave Mattacks (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.

  52. 2016 Thursday: Ahead of Donald Trump’s inauguration as the 45th president of the United States, outgoing President Barack Obama nullifies a program that registered Muslim immigrants into the U.S.  The system is known as the National Security Entry-Exit Registration System or NSEERS.  Obama is afraid that the incoming administration will use it to persecute Muslims.  Meanwhile, the Trump transition team seeks information on gender equality projects the U.S. Department of State has been conducting throughout the Obama administration.
  53. 2017 Friday: The wildfire that had burned its way through communities and wilderness northwest of Los Angeles became the largest blaze ever officially recorded in California.  It had scorched 273,400 acres and destroyed more than 700 homes.  Meanwhile, iPhone owners from several states sued Apple for not disclosing sooner that it issued software updates deliberately slowing older-model phones so aging batteries would last longer.  Finally, President Donald J. Trump signed the $1.5 trillion tax overhaul into law.
  54. 2018 Saturday: A government shutdown that went into effect the previous night continued into the weekend with lawmakers leaving for home for the Christmas holidays.  The shutdown came about because President Trump would not sign the budget if it did not include a measly $1.5 billion for him to continue work on the southern border wall.  Senate Minority Leader “Crying Chuck” Schumer told the president that he ‘will never get the money for his barrier so stop with the shutdown and put the government back to work.’  Finally, Indonesia’s Anak Krakatau volcano island erupted and collapsed, triggering a tsunami that killed more than 420 people and displaced 40,000.
  55. 2019 Sunday: The Pentagon released new emails regarding the President Donald J. Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.  Approximately 91 minutes after the phone call occurred, the White House Budget Office ordered the Pentagon to put a hold on military aid to the former Soviet republic.  Democrats are impeaching President Trump over this ‘phone call.’   Meanwhile, the White House is considering a plan in which, it will deport illegal aliens seeking to storm the border to Guatemala where they will wait asylum hearings.
  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.

[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!

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

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

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

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

  52. 2002 Friday: Two weeks after launching a political firestorm due to some insensitive remarks, Senate Republican Leader Trent Lott resigned his seat.  If Democrats say insensitive things, seldom does anyone require them to leave but Republicans always jump ship.  Meanwhile, the nation’s 10 biggest brokerage firms agreed to pay $1.44 billion and fundamentally to change the way they do business to settle allegations that they had mislead investors by hyping certain companies flawed stocks.  Elsewhere, Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski enters the U.S. Senate on this date.
  53. 2004 Monday: In a sobering assessment of the Iraq War, President George W.

  54. 2005 Tuesday: New York City union members shut down the subway system and the bus system for three days.  Meanwhile, a federal judge ruled that “intelligent design” could not be mentioned in biology classes in a Pennsylvania public school district, delivering a stinging attack on the Dover Area School Board.

  56. 2007 Thursday: The U.S. House Intelligence Committee subpoenas the former head of the CIA’s National Clandestine Service Jose Rodriguez to bust his balls over the destruction of CIA interrogation tapes of jihadist thugs and murderers in CIA custody.  Ah, well, you can’t get everything you want.  Meanwhile, the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam, strikes again as a suicide attack targeting a Pakistani government official kills at least 50 people and wounds loads of others.  Elsewhere, four Palestinians get themselves killed as they attempt to attack Israel along its border with the Gaza Strip.  
  57. 2008 Saturday: Reuters reports that three submarine cables mysteriously break that disrupt telephone and internet communications between the Middle East and Asia.
  58. 2009 Sunday: In Palm Springs, California, James Gurley, former lead guitarist with the San Francisco band, Big Brother, and the Holding Company[viii] suffers a heart attack at age 69 and dies.   Elsewhere, U.N. climate talks end in failure thanks to no binding deal among the world’s nations.  Instead, the U.S., Communist China, South Africa, Brazil, and India met behind closed doors and hammered out a NON-binding agreement known as the Copenhagen accord by which, the nations would ‘agree’ to doing better but are under NO obligation to do so.   Meanwhile, as the swine flu (another pandemic from communist China) runs amok, President Barack Obama gets his injection for the disease.
  59. 2010 Monday: The Obama administration seeks the ability to launch raids into Pakistan deeper than they have before.  We thought President Obama was opposed to widening wars or starting new ones.  My, my, my!  Meanwhile, there is a reason for this: a report says that over the course of 2010, 700 foreign troops have lost their lives in Afghanistan to foes who hide across the border in- you guessed it- Pakistan.
  60. 2011 Tuesday: In Egypt, thousands of women protest the Cairo police for having beaten numerous female protesters in Tahir Square in Cairo.  The top U.S. Army general in Iraq- Lloyd Austin- returns from the devastated country.   Meanwhile, the U.S. military rests its case in the courts martial of Private Bradley Manning, the young soldier who handed reams of classified intel over to Julian Assange and WikiLeaks.

  62. 2013 Friday: For the first time since 1927, the Bakersfield High School Drillers football team won the state championship by beating Loomis-Del Oro Golden Eagles in the CIF Division I State Bowl Championship in Carson City, California.  The final score was 56-26.
  63. 2014 Saturday: Peshmerga forces in Iraq push ISIS forces off part of Sinjar Mountain, liberating 1,500 or so Yazidi families who had fled there after the terrorist army drove them from their villages in the valley below the mountain.  Meanwhile, the Obama administration sends four Afghan POWs back to their home country after having held them for more than a decade at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in the camp there.
  64. 2015 Sunday: At the recent Democratic Presidential Primary Debate, Senator Bernie Sanders and former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton go to town on one another over the role of the U.S. military in the world.  Hillary a hawk and Bernie a Chi-Com-loving dove have different views.  Former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley was there, too, but no one gave a s**t.
  65. 2016 Tuesday: Outgoing President Barack Hussein Obama bans oil drilling in both the Arctic and along the Eastern Seaboard.  Meanwhile, the World Meteorological Association says that 2016 is going to be the hottest year on record driving young climate change activists to run amok in the streets, believing the planet is going to die.  Four years later, it’s still here and doing better, no thanks to the Chi-Com Bat Flu of 2020.   Elsewhere, the Trump transition team continues requesting information from the U.S. State Department regarding its donations to environmental groups.
  66. 2017 Wednesday: Democracy Now (and other liberal groups) are wailing that the Republican-controlled Congress passes a massive tax overhaul group that is going to benefit the nation’s richest Americans and corporations.  Again, the ‘richest Americans and corporations’ provide the most jobs.  Meanwhile, as rent-a-mobs protest in the streets, the very same congress passes a budget bill that won’t provide additional aid to DREAMERS.  Oh, boohoo.   
  67. 2018 Thursday: After ‘disagreements’ with President Donald J. Trump on military strategy- namely, keeping troops in West Africa, East Africa, Afghanistan, and Syria- U.S. Secretary of Defense James “Mad Dog” Mattis announces his resignation effective at the end of the year.  The president would send him packing sooner…
  68. 2019 Friday: Awaiting the House Democrats to walk the impeachment papers over to the U.S. Senate, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his fellow GOP senators plot the upcoming impeachment strategy.  Unable to really generate honest articles of impeachment against President Trump, the Democrats have cobbled together two laughable articles of impeachment which over the course of time would become known to everyone.  The Democrats in the Senate would DEMAND WITNESSES.  Folks, the Senate hears from NO witnesses as the Senate members are the jury and the party doing the impeachment presents its case, win, or lose.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump establishes the U.S. Space Force on this date to counter Chi-Com, Russian, and Iranian threats in the war domain of outer space.  
  69. 2020 Sunday: Here are today’s NFL matchups: (4) Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 31 (9-5) @ Atlanta Falcons, 27 (4-10) Sunday 10:00 A.M.  (5)  San Francisco 49ers, 33 (5-9) @ Dallas Cowboys, 41 (5-9) 10:00 A.M.  (6) Detroit Lions, 25 (5-9) @ Tennessee Titans, 46 (10-4) 10:00 A.M.  (7) Houston Texans, 20 (4-10) @ Indianapolis Colts, 27 (10-4) 10:00 A.M.  (8) New England Patriots, 12 (6-8) @ Miami Dolphins, 22 (9-5) 10:00 A.M.  (9) Chicago Bears, 33 (7-7) @ Minnesota Vikings, 27 (6-8) 10:00 A.M.

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

Sunday, December 20, 2020, Today in History:

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


Monday, December 20, 2021:

ENDNOTES:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

  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.

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

  58. 2020 Saturday:  Comrade Xi Jinping calls for a special meeting of the Chi-Com Politburo where he discusses the spread of COVID-19 and the danger it poses to the people of China.   Of course, it originated in the Wuhan biomedical/biowarfare laboratory (although they would seek to blame the U.S. Army at a later date for bringing it into their country- a bogus claim but such are communists).   Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of State orders its consulate staffers to begin leaving communist China ASAP.
  59. 2021 Monday:  First of all, it’s official: Janet Yellen is now the first female U.S. Treasury secretary.  Congratulations.  It really matters what is or what is NOT between your legs.  We are proud.  Next, the LEFT is celebrating ‘President’ Joe Biden’s ‘Catholicism’ which is strange because the man is a founding member of the Pro-Death Movement (aka Pro-Choice).  IF Pope Francis were not such a leftist himself, he’d excommunicate the Satan-worshipping ‘46th president.’  Up next, ‘President’ Joe Biden ends the Trump era ban on trannys serving in the military.   Following that, ‘President’ Joe Biden steals Donald Trump’s ‘make American, buy American’ program and remakes it as his own.  Plagiarist to the end there, Joe.
  60. 2021 Monday A: In the Golden State in the city of San (“Lord when are you going to destroy me like You did Sodom and Gomorrah?”) Francisco, taxpayers are going to continue paying the upscale hotel fees for housing the homeless until September 2021 at the earliest.  And Governor Gavin Newsom why’s there now over 1 million signatures on his recall petition.  Speaking of our brave governor, he’s ‘seen the light and is rolling back stay-at-home-orders.’  Too late, Smiler, too late.
  61. 2021 Monday B: ‘President’ Joe Biden has decided to maintain his predecessor’s travel bans on numerous countries due to the rampaging COVID-19, aka the Wuhan Virus, and has added South Africa to the list.  Sounds ‘racist’ to us, there, ‘Mr. President.’  Speaking of the ‘usurper-in-chief,’ he’s facing bi-partisan pushback on his massive porkulus stimulus bill which is good.  $1.9 trillion is way too much money, especially when one considers the money is flowing east from Beijing to Washington, D.C., to pay for this plus the fact ILLEGAL ALIENS are getting stimulus checks, too.  Meanwhile, ‘President’ Joe Biden announces he is going to erase all student loan debt.  That is going to lead to loss of still more jobs and lenders going broke.
  62. 2021 Monday C:  Strange things are occurring in Washington, D.C., what with the Washington Monument suddenly going dark.  Investigators are investigating.  Meanwhile, the Democrats are ordering reviews of all police departments and military and National Guard units to root out ‘right-wing radicals.’  My, my, it’s okay to be Antifa, Occupy, BLM, or even the U.S. branch of Mao’s Red Guards but conservatives?  Oh, no, never.  Speaking of trash rioting in the streets, Tacoma, Washington, now is aflame thanks to cadres of Chi-Com-trained Antifa thugs running amok in the streets.  Governor Inslee, how about calling out the National Guard and squashing these insects.  Finally, to continue the aura that Washington, D.C., is under siege from Trump supporters, 7,000 National Guard troops- the ones who have been purified by the left- will remain in the city until sometime in March, AFTER the bogus second impeachment trial of an ex-president ends.
  63. 2021 Monday D: ‘President’ Joe Biden’s boss, Xi Jinping, warns the U.S. against an ‘outmoded cold war mentality.’  Okay.  Meanwhile, as Russia continues rounding up thousands of anti-Putin supporters of Alexei Navalny, the ‘Biden administration’ makes weak demands of the Kremlin to ‘let these people go.’  Putin does not even meet the U.S. ambassador in person and even worse, tells ‘President’ Biden NOT to meddle in the affairs of Russia.  Yikes.   Elsewhere, a recent study shows that the world’s ice is melting at a higher rate than it was 30 years ago; yet liberals continue buying beachfront homes.  What’s up with that hypocrisy?
  64. 2021 Monday E: COVID-19 pays good, folks: Dr. Tony Fauci, darling of the American left, pulls in the highest annual salary in the federal government: $417.6 thousand dollars per year.  How many times has this goof ball been wrong?  We’ve lost count.  Speaking of the Chi-Vi, an ABC ‘poll’ says that 69-percent of Americans approve of ‘President’ Joe Biden’s handling of the COVID-19 crisis.  What has he done that Trump didn’t do?  Biden says in his first 100 days, he was going to get 100 million doses out to the American people.  Now, he’s jacking it up to 150 million doses.  We shall see.  News reports are saying that there are many unexplained deaths surrounding people who have gotten the virus.  Not good.   Meanwhile, FEMA says it will reimburse SOME of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu’s costs to the states.  (Pssst- don’t reimburse Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo because that man is responsible for a genocide among seniors and the chronically ill in the Empire State).  Finally, while COVID-19 runs amok, the billionaires continue growing wealthier while the middle and lower classes continue growing poorer.  All by leftist design, social engineering, and pro-Chi-Com politics.
  65. 2021 Monday F: The U.S. Supreme Court ends anticorruption cases launched against former President Donald J. Trump.  Speaking of the high court, Chief Justice John Roberts says he will NOT attend the ‘second impeachment sham trial,’ which leaves the Democrats to elevate old fogey Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy to the dais in an unconstitutional trial.  Regarding impeachment, the Epoch Times says there are 29 GOP senators who are anti-impeachment and will make their presence known once the scam commences.   Also, Congressman Jim Jordan, R-OH, is rounding up a rapid-response squad to counter Democrat moves to impeach- a second, illegal time- former President Donald J. Trump.  Elsewhere, Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, is filing a countersuit against seven Democratic senators who tried to tie him and Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, to the Antifa-led Capitol Hill Riots of January 6 who tried to get him and his colleague expelled from the upper chamber.  Finally, Senator Rob Portman, R-OH, says he won’t seek re-election.  
  66. 2021 Monday G: ‘President’ Joe Biden says he’s going to ‘expedite getting Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill.  Look, ‘Chi-Com Joe’ (we mean ‘President Joe’) why don’t you make a new bill, the $25 bill?  We have pushed that for a long, long time- since Barack Hussein Obama was ‘president.’  That makes more sense.  Meanwhile, the Instagram scandal over ‘President’ Joe Biden followers grows- hardly anyone is following the so-called 46th president on the White House feed so Instagram has been charged with forcing all users to follow ‘President’ Joe Biden’s White House feed.  Speaking of shams and scams, Twitter has launched a program called “Birdwatch” that will monitor misinformation on its site and online.  They are going to bust all manner of leftists spreading disinformation and misinformation.  Speaking of social media, the Trump Family regains some of their social media followers.   Rupert Murdoch slams liberal media for its ‘awful WOKE orthodoxy’ and yet, Fox News worked to defeat President Trump and to put an usurper in his place.  Shame.  Elsewhere, former UN Ambassador says the ‘media bears partial responsibility for some of the divisions’ affecting our country.
  67. 2021 Monday H: Mayoral candidate Andrew Yang, Democrat, says, “New York City must restore its value.”  Question is- is it too late?  Next, famed attorney Alan Dershowitz says he will America’s Mayor Rudy Giuliani to the ‘depths of his soul’ as the corrupt Dominion Voting System-election-stealing company out of a now hostile Canada seeks to sue the living bejezzus out of Mr. Giuliani over his battle to expose the Canadian scum for exactly what they are: criminals (or so we allege).  In other news, Budweiser says it’s NOT going to spend any money on commercials for the Super Bowl on February 7.   Meanwhile, Montana passes four bills limiting ABORTION.  Congratulations!
  68. 2021 Monday I: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 99,655,985 confirmed cases, +599,649, 2,138,251, confirmed deaths, +12,324, and 54,961,829 confirmed recoveries, +316,036.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 25,501,479 confirmed cases, up 127,128 from yesterday’s reporting, 425,429 confirmed deaths, UP 1,638, and 11,166,132 confirmed recoveries, UP 35,702.
  69. 2021 Monday J: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,200,931 confirmed cases, 37,349 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 (sill the same as it was a week ago- something is going on in Honolulu) confirmed cases, 342 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 304,617 confirmed cases, 4,182 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Maine: currently, they have 37,046 confirmed cases, 547 confirmed deaths, and 12,245 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 606,365 confirmed cases, 4,498 confirmed deaths, and 529,834 confirmed recoveries.   Speaking of the Wuhan Flu, MRNA says its Chi-Vi vaccine will protect against ALL variants.  Wow.  A miracle drug.
  70. 2021 Monday K:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,960.00, DOWN 36.98 points (-0.12%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,635.99, UP 92.93 points (+0.69%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,855.36, UP 13.89 points (+0.36%).  The price of GOLD is $1,853.90 per troy oz., -1.30 (-0.07%) while the price of SILVER is $25.40 per troy ounce, -0.089 (-0.35%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,098.00 per troy oz, -6.70 (-0.61%) while the price of COPPER is $3.62 per pound, -0.011 (-0.30%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,346.90 per troy oz, -18.30 (-0.77%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.71 per barrel, -0.06 (-0.11%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.11.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000030.  In other economic news, investment in U.S. space programs hits a record $8.9 billion in 2020.  We must return to the moon and make it to Mars before the Chi-Coms do.  Period.  Watch ‘President’ Joe Biden strip funding from NASA. 
  71. 2021 Monday L: DAY SIX OF THE BIDEN REGIME- stick around to find out what else ‘President’ Joe Biden is up to today.  Hmmm, his ‘boss’ House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, she of drooping Botox-drenched face, walked the Article of Impeachment against ex- (the REAL) President Donald J. Trump to the U.S. Senate where the obsequious, knuckle-dragging Senate Majority Leader Charles “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer received it.  Impeachment proceedings to commence the day following Super Bowl LV.   Look, “Botox Nancy,” you are 10 seats away from losing control of the House.  In the Senate, we expect Raphael Warnock and Mark Kelly will be gone in 2022, seeing as how they were ‘winners’ of special elections in states where the state GOP leadership worked on behalf of Democrats.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Michael Schenker Group came back on September 05, 1981 with its sophomore effort, “MSG.”  Most fans believe this album to be the crème de la crème, much of the reason due to overproduction which gives it a superb sound.  Joining the fiery German guitarist are bassist Chris Glen (from the Sensational Alex Harvey Band), Cozy Powell (drums/percussion), Gary Barden (vocals), and the famed Paul Raymond of Chicken Shack, Savoy Brown, and UFO fame on keyboards/guitars/and vocals.  This album is absolutely amazing, one we love and wholeheartedly encourage everyone to rush out, give a listen to, and then consider adding it to your ever-growing collection- you will be so glad you did.

[i] We promoted the music of the greatest blues-rock-British-boogie band, Savoy Brown, beginning on Friday, 28-January-2011 through Monday, 28-February-2011.  Kim Simmonds is one of the greatest guitarists of all time which is why everyone should check the music of this fabulous band out ASAP.

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

[iii] Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is little more than a murderous thug who should have been droned in the same way we droned Gen. Qassim Soleimani, the terrorist POS who ran the Quds Force until Donald Trump wiped him out.

[iv] Many believe Barack Obama should be disqualified as a president because most believe he was born outside the United States which would ban him from ever seeking the highest office in the land.  At the very least, an asterisk should be placed by his name in all U.S. history books.

[v] The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists’ Doomsday Clock is a left-wing way to terrorize the citizens of the world whenever a conservative or Republican is president of the United States.  Pay no attention to these scumbags.

Q. 1942 Saturday: Russian attacks continue against the trapped Sixth Army in Stalingrad. Food rations were slashed to two ounces of bread per man, a bowl of soup sans fat for lunch and if available, meager meat rations for the evening. Still, the defenders of the city clung to their positions while braver ones crawled out into the darkness at night seeking any kind of sustenance in the frozen wheat fields outside the city.

  47. 2017 Tuesday:  As Democrats continue spreading lies about the tax bill signed yesterday by President Donald J. Trump, they plan to use their phony version of it as a way of winning big in the 2018 Mid-Term Elections.  What a bunch of scum.  They claim that the tax law will harm charitable donations not that Democrats know anything about giving to charity because stats show conservatives with a strong belief in God donate to charity way more than leftists who believe in Marx and Engels.
  48. 2018 Wednesday:  President Donald J. Trump makes a Christmas visit to a U.S. military base in Iraq where he receives an extremely warm welcome from U.S. servicemen-and-women.   The Fake News Media points out that this is ‘his first trip to a war zone since coming to office two years ago.’  Wah, wah, wah.  Meanwhile, President Trump says the government shutdown could continue quite a while due to the Democratic Party’s intransigence in refusing to fund the BORDER WALL separating the United States from chaos, anarchy, and violence.
  49. 2019 Thursday: As heavy fighting continues to rage across Syria, heavy bombing by Syrian government troops forces hospitals and health clinics in Idlib to close their doors and go underground.   Meanwhile, thanks to rising tensions in the Gulf of Oman, the Japanese government announces it will send a naval destroyer to protect shipments of oil.   Elsewhere, Muslims in India continue running amok over the ‘anti-Muslim citizenship law.’  Look, when the Muslims learn how to behave like everyone else, such laws will not be necessary.
  50. 2020 Saturday: A federal judge delays sentencing in the case of former FBI lawyer, Kevin Clinesmith who lied in the Trump-Russia Collusion Hoax the Democrats concocted to eliminate Mr. Trump.  We suspect the court is awaiting the outcome of the January 5 Electoral College vote in the U.S. House of Representatives.  Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms are poised to leapfrog the U.S. to become the lone global superpower by 2028.  Elsewhere, federal, state, and local law enforcement continues to search for the culprits behind the Christmas Day RV explosion in downtown Nashville, Tennessee.  If they have suspects in mind, they are remaining mum for the time being.
  51. 2020 Saturday A: The Pennsylvania lawmakers who have met with President Donald J. Trump say the ‘president is resolved in contesting the 2020 Election results.’  Meanwhile, U.S. officials deny they evacuated the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad’s Green Zone over threats of attack.  Elsewhere, Japan urges ‘Pro-China Joe” Biden to remain strong on defending Taiwan, calling it a ‘red line’ the Chi-Coms should not cross.  IF Biden does become president, we expect the Chi-Coms will move against FREE China within six months.
  52. 2020 Saturday B: The CARES Act unemployment benefits expire today.  Meanwhile, the COVID-19 Relief Bill arrives at Mar-a-Lago in Florida for the president’s signature.  Elsewhere, we learn that former British double agent George Blake dies in Moscow at age 98 on this date.  Finally, the mayor of Miami, Florida, is doing his best to woo New York Wall Street banks to relocate to his state where there are no income taxes and freedom to operate.  That would be amazing.
  53. 2020 Saturday C: 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: 80,1229,602 confirmed cases, +463,077, 1,755,940, confirmed deaths, +70,225, and 45,338,147 confirmed recoveries, +405,622.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 19,103,992 confirmed cases, UP 164,718 from yesterday’s reporting, 335,265 confirmed deaths, UP 1,663, and 8,320,845 confirmed recoveries, UP 16,541.
  54. 2020 Saturday D: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 2,072,665 confirmed cases, 23,983 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 20,888 confirmed cases, 288 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 237,689 confirmed cases, 3,268 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state- Arizona. Currently, they have 393,041 confirmed cases, 8,424 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Ducey.  Let’s look at Israel’s stats now that Mo is living there: 398,664 confirmed cases, 3,210 confirmed deaths, and 359,816 confirmed recoveries.
  55. 2020 Saturday E: We have three NFL games today: (2) Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 47 (10-5) @ Detroit Lions, 7 (5-10) Saturday 10:00 A.M.  Next, (3) San Francisco 49ers, 20 (6-9) @ Arizona Cardinals, 12 (8-7) Saturday 1:30 P.M.  Tonight’s game: (4) Miami Dolphins, 26 (10-5) @ Las Vegas Raiders, 25 (7-8) Saturday 5:15 P.M.  In addition to this, we will also have results for tonight’s Super Lotto and Powerball draws. Here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3520 with a jackpot of $18 million up for grabs: 04, 06, 16, 19, 32, and Mega 02.  Out of 97,179 winning tickets, one person won the jackpot of $18,000,000.  The jackpot ticket was bought at the Café Paradise in San Jose, CA, 95111.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #806: 10, 24, 27, 35, 53, and Powerball 18.  Out of 102,257 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $114,230.
  56. 2020 Saturday F:  Here we are, the day after Christmas and as you know, neither the Democratic Party OR their bosses in the Chinese Communist Party ever sleep so please stay tuned to see what the scum is up to today.  We support President Donald J. Trump, Trump won the election, NOT Beijing Biden!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Peter Wolf’s sophomore effort did better than his first.  “Come as You Are” came out on March 20, 1987 and hit #15 on the Billboard Hot 100 music charts which was a significant accomplishment.  The interesting thing about this album is that the two people with whom Wolf wrote the tracks panned by Seth Justman following “Freeze-Frame” that led to Wolf jumping ship- Michael Jonzun and Don Covay are not around.  He has other songwriting partners and musicians joining him.  The band rocks from start to finish and we hope you will seek out this album wherever fine rock music is bought and sold.  You will be so glad you did, no doubts about it.  It would be a glorious Kwanzaa gift!

U. 1942 Tuesday: As fighting on the Eastern Front continues going from bad to worse, Field Marshal Erich von Manstein will make his decision tomorrow as to whether the German relief forces will make the final run to Stalingrad or will withdraw to redeploy so they can stop the mayhem occurring north of the doomed city. Inside the crumbling metropolis, General Paulus is showing no sign of a willingness to break out of the trap and make a run to the west and safety behind the Axis lines.

  51. 2016 Thursday: Ahead of Donald Trump’s inauguration as the 45th president of the United States, outgoing President Barack Obama nullifies a program that registered Muslim immigrants into the U.S.  The system is known as the National Security Entry-Exit Registration System or NSEERS.  Obama is afraid that the incoming administration will use it to persecute Muslims.  Meanwhile, the Trump transition team seeks information on gender equality projects the U.S. Department of State has been conducting throughout the Obama administration.
  52. 2017 Friday: The wildfire that had burned its way through communities and wilderness northwest of Los Angeles became the largest blaze ever officially recorded in California.  It had scorched 273,400 acres and destroyed more than 700 homes.  Meanwhile, iPhone owners from several states sued Apple for not disclosing sooner that it issued software updates deliberately slowing older-model phones so aging batteries would last longer.  Finally, President Donald J. Trump signed the $1.5 trillion tax overhaul into law.
  53. 2018 Saturday: A government shutdown that went into effect the previous night continued into the weekend with lawmakers leaving for home for the Christmas holidays.  The shutdown came about because President Trump would not sign the budget if it did not include a measly $1.5 billion for him to continue work on the southern border wall.  Senate Minority Leader “Crying Chuck” Schumer told the president that he ‘will never get the money for his barrier so stop with the shutdown and put the government back to work.’  Finally, Indonesia’s Anak Krakatau volcano island erupted and collapsed, triggering a tsunami that killed more than 420 people and displaced 40,000.
  54. 2019 Sunday: The Pentagon released new emails regarding the President Donald J. Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.  Approximately 91 minutes after the phone call occurred, the White House Budget Office ordered the Pentagon to put a hold on military aid to the former Soviet republic.  Democrats are impeaching President Trump over this ‘phone call.’   Meanwhile, the White House is considering a plan in which, it will deport illegal aliens seeking to storm the border to Guatemala where they will wait asylum hearings.
  55. 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.
  56. 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!
  57. 2020 Tuesday B: Holy Roller Pat Robertson says, ‘Trump should move on, forget about 2024.’  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.
  58. 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.
  59. 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.
  60. 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.
  61. 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.
  62. 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.
  63. 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!
  64. 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…
  65. 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.
  66. 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.
  67. 2020 Tuesday L: 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…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Former front man for the J. Geils Band- Peter Wolf- went into the studio and on July 21, 1984, released his first solo album, the acclaimed “Lights Out.”  As long-time fans of the band, it was a tear-jerker to see Wolf go just as it was to see Rod Stewart dump the Faces and Ian Hunter spit in the eye of Mott the Hoople and go their own way.  Joining the veteran vocalist were Adrian Belew and Peter Bliss (guitars/backing vocals), Michael Jonzun (bass), and loads of other people.  It was a fine debut.  The reason Wolf abandoned the group is because Wolf began writing with outside musicians and when be brought the tunes to the group, co-leader Seth Justman said, “NO.”  Thus, the band broke apart and the title track became a mid-sized hit for the vocalist.  Sad but true.  Check it out.
