22. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, JANUARY 22, 2022

2005 Saturday: Following the filing against him of war crimes charges resulting from U.S. actions in the Iraq War, U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld cancels an appearance in Germany, the country where the charges were filed. This also follows a report from the Washington Post regarding a clandestine organization within the Pentagon that allows the U.S. military to skirt cooperation with the Central Intelligence Agency, and which is under direct control of Secretary Rumsfeld. Known as the Strategic Support Branch, it allows military intelligence to do whatever they have to do to ‘question’ jihadist suspects. In some circles, we call this “TORTURE.”

  62. 2013 Tuesday: Chinese researchers discover an ancient human fossil in a cave near Beijing; the 40,000-year-old leg bone shows that it was related to present-day Asians and Native Americans, thus the Chi-Coms would have us believe that they have a claim to North America.  Let’s nuke these SOBs.  
  63. 2014 Wednesday: The European Space Agency researchers detect water vapor on the minor planet Ceres, the largest asteroid and only dwarf planet within the inner Solar System, an utterly amazing find.  Elsewhere, a rare, blue, 29.6-carat diamond, one of the most exceptional ever mined at the Cullinan mine, is discovered about 25 miles northeast of Pretoria, South Africa.

  67. 2018 Monday: The United States- to the shock of millions of Palestinian-lovers- announces that the U.S. will recognize Jerusalem as the eternal capital of Israel.  Anti-Semites go nuts across the U.S. and around the world.   In a speech before the Knesset, Vice President Mike Pence says it will become official in early 2019 with the opening of a brand-new embassy.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Senate strikes a deal to keep the government open until February 8 by which time they hope to have a funding bill passed.

  71. 2021 Friday A: After massive outrage occurred over Tweeted videos of U.S. National Guard members sleeping in a parking garage in Washington, D.C., surfaced- in 32-degree and colder weather- First Lady Jill Biden went down there for photo ops, kissed, and made nice, and allowed them to return to the Capitol Building.  They were sent to the parking garage once their photo purpose was over- making it appear that the Capitol and the Inauguration was imminent threat of attack by Trump supporters because Democrats have NO LOVE for the American military.  Hence why Governors Greg Abbott, Texas, and Ron DeSantis, Florida, are calling their guard members home or vowing never to send them again.  Excellent.
  72. 2021 Friday B: Pressure is mounting on ‘President’ Joe Biden NOT to hire BIG TECH hacks to flesh out his White House communications department.  Meanwhile, Google is threatening to strip its search engine from Australia (there’s Mozilla, Opera, Bing, Safari, among others) because of a bill there that will charge Google for its news feeds.  BIG TECH trying to crush people and countries again yet loves the Chi-Coms.  Wow.  Elsewhere, Bloomberg News says it might be ‘difficult’ to ban Fox News Channel and Newsmax.  Where there’s a will, there’s a way, you frigging fascists.  Meanwhile, Google is shuttering Loon, an alternative to cellphone towers using balloons.
  73. 2021 Friday C: “Hammering Hank” Aaron baseball great received the COVID-19 vaccine as a way of encouraging fellow black folks to get the vaccine back on January 5.  On January 22, he is dead at age 86.  Chef Bea O’Malley of the AICPENDBLOG.COM says there is NO way her or her family is getting the vaccine because when white liberals encourage black folks to do something, it never works out good for them.  Speaking of the Chi-Vi, Dr. Tony Fauci, a guy who’s all over the ballpark and not in a clever way says, he thinks we are plateauing out now what with ‘Usurper Joe’ Biden as our president.  Simultaneously, Great Britain says their variant of the Chi-Vi is not only more contagious but also more deadly.  Wow.   
  74. 2021 Friday D: ‘President’ Joe Biden is pushing stopgap measures while he tries to get Congress onboard with his $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief plan, a plan that will be funded with Chi-Com cash. In a sign of an ‘improving Biden economy,’ the ‘46th president’ is pushing for more food stamps like his former boss, Barack Obama, did back during the eight years of Obama-Biden.  Things were so good back then; food stamp usage was at an all-time historic high.  Guess we are returning to the GOOD OLD DAYS.  Likewise, he is pushing his $15 minimum wage increase for all federal workers which also is going to harm the economy.  In other interesting economic/labor news, Amazon.com is demanding IN-PERSON voting in the union vote in COVID-19-afflicted Alabama.  Amazon wants ‘in-person voting’ but in the 2020 Presidential Election, we couldn’t have ‘in person’ voting?  Tells you all you need to know: “86 46.”
  75. 2021 Friday E: House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer, and Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell plan to get the second impeachment trial of former President Donald J. Trump underway and soon.  However, constitutional scholars say you CANNOT impeach a former president.  I guess we shall see.  Former White House economic adviser Peter Navarro says you ‘forget unity’ if this bogus sham moves forward.   Speaking of impeachment, freshman Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Green- the famed MTG- has put forth articles of impeachment for the ‘46th president’ over his close ties to the Chi-Coms who are celebrating the NEW ‘Biden administration’ and the departure of Donald J. Trump.  It tells you all you need to know.  Congressman Steve Scalise, R-LA, also says ‘President’ Joe Biden should immediately nix the bogus impeachment of the out-of-office 45th president.  We concur.
  76. 2021 Friday F: Upon orders from ‘President’ Joe Biden, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers halts construction on the southern border wall.  There goes more interconnected jobs.   Senator Roger Marshall of Kansas says ‘President’ Joe Biden must reconsider stoppage of the Keystone XL Pipeline project.  He won’t.  Moving on, a unanimous vote puts Janet Yellen in as secretary of the U.S. Treasury while a nearly unanimous votes makes U.S. Army Gen. Lloyd Austin, Ret., as the new 28th secretary of Defense.  His predecessor, Acting U.S. Secretary of Defense David Norquist stepped down on this date.  He served from January 20 until today.
  77. 2021 Friday G: Twitter finally cancels the scumbag ayatollah of Iran for calling death and destruction down upon Donald Trump.  What took you so long?   Speaking of former President Trump, his banks move to cancel him and his banking accounts.  Wow.  This is America?  Meanwhile, the Kremlin welcomes the ‘Biden administration’s’ return to extend the Open Skies Treaty between the U.S. and Russia but would like to see the details.  Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms are importing ‘doctored oil’ from Venezuela so as to sneak it past inspectors seeking to clamp down on oil imports from the totalitarian hellhole.  Elsewhere, in other interesting news, the city of Chicago has already experienced 1,125 violent carjackings just this year.  Who the hell wants to visit the Windy City?

  79. 2021 Friday I: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,115,704 confirmed cases, 35,768 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases (this number has not changed in a week), 328 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 300,420 confirmed cases, 4,131 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: New Hampshire: currently, they have 60,294 confirmed cases, 962 confirmed deaths, and 53,128 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 582,869 confirmed cases, 4,245 confirmed deaths, and 497,578 confirmed recoveries.   
  80. 2021 Friday J: For a laugh, let’s look at the Chi-Coms’ numbers- they say they have 88,701 cases, +247, 4,635 confirmed deaths, and 82,468 confirmed recoveries, +36.  This, of course, is ALL BULLS**T.  When we had contacts in Hong Kong, they said times the numbers by 100, 150, or 200 times and you would get a somewhat closer picture.  Rat-eating scum.  Speaking of the Chi-Vi, Amazon.com is offering to help the ‘Biden administration’ with distribution of the now-questionable vaccines.  They could have aided the previous president but nope, no flipping way.
  81. 2021 Friday K:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,996.98, DOWN 179.03 points (-0.57%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,543.06, UP 12.15 points (+0.09%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,841.47, DOWN 11.60 points (-0.30%).  The price of GOLD is $1,855.50 per troy oz., -0.70 (-0.40%) while the price of SILVER is $25.56 per troy ounce, +0.009 (+0.04%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,109.10 per troy oz, -2.50 (-0.22%) while the price of COPPER is $3.62 per pound, -0.0065 (-0.18%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,365.20 per troy oz, -9.90 (-0.42%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $51.98 per barrel, -0.29 (-0.55%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros while one-dollar U.S. = 6.48 Chi-Com yuan.  One-dollar U.S. = 0.000030 Bitcoin.  Next, one U.S. greenback = 75.15 Russian rubles.   In other economic news, U.S. house sales of existing homes hits its highest mark back in 2006 at an 0.22-percent increase due to a slowdown in new home construction.  However, we fear that unless the government provides aid to landlords, the Chi-Coms will become the de facto landowner in the U.S. via using strawman companies to snap up all available real estate.  We cannot permit something as outrageous as this EVER to happen.
  82. 2021 Friday L: Stay tuned for tonight’s Mega-Millions draw what with a $999 million jackpot up for grabs.  Okay, here’s the numbers for Draw #1627 with NO BIG WINNER(S): 04, 26, 42, 50, 60, and Mega 24.  Out of 1,082,353 winning tickets, the highest winners were 26 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $11,036 apiece.  UPDATE- although the California Lottery website shows the Mega Millions pot is now $20 million, it still is not showing that someone actually WON the pot, estimated to be $1.1 billion.  News media is reporting a sole winner in Michigan so we will update when we possess the information.  FINAL UPDATE: one person won in Michigan won the big pot worth $1.01 billion.  Congratulations.
  83. 2022 Saturday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On September 16, 2007, Sandy Denny’s label released a concise package from the “Live at the BBC” Box Set that came out three days earlier, also called “Live at the BBC.”  This one contained the unreleased tracks augmented with some others so fans who had much of her earlier BBC recordings could latch onto these for a lesser price than the big box.  We are not saying that the box set is not worth it because it most assuredly is, but this is also a good addition because you get some tunes you had no clue ever existed.  We hope you will visit Amazon.com, Discogs, AllMusic, eBay, or any other place you shop for the absolute best in music and consider making it a part of your listening day- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

ENDNOTES:

[i] We should have promoted the music of Journey around the time we did the music of Santana. We hope to do so sometime within the next 10-12 years.  We hope you will remain alert for the day when we do.

[ii] We look forward to promoting the music of INXS sometime within the next 15 years or so.  We hope you will be there when we do.  We thank you.

[iii] Not sure when Guns ‘n’ Roses is coming but we hope we will still be alive and will get around to sharing them with the world.

[iv] We look forward to doing the music of Billy Preston one day.  We hope you will remain vigilant for the day that we do.

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

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, THE TIME TO HELP JOE BIDEN IS NOW.  NOW.

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

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

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

  36. 1940 Monday: The Soviet NKVD- the secret police- begin trucking captured Polish officers into the Katyn Forest where they will soon begin machine-gunning them to death, at least 22,000 Polish officers and intelligentsia, people the Soviets view as impediments to them forcing communism onto the conquered portion of the nation they control.
  37. 1941 Tuesday: Pro-German Rashid Ali al-Ghailani grabs power in Iraq.  Angry at their occupation by the Brits, the “Golden Square,” the movement to oust the British gets underway.  At first, the British would be surprised and overrun but within a few days would be able to recover and strike back.  Meanwhile, in North Africa, following their costly defeat at El Agheila, the British are falling back in headlong retreat across the coastal road.  Is the road for the Axis to Egypt WIDE OPEN?  Meanwhile, German troops are moving towards the Yugoslav border.  They have a date with the Yugoslav people…
  38. 1942 Wednesday: The Japanese army continues the conquest of Burma, pushing the British back in one concentrated assault after another.  Meanwhile, in the Mediterranean Sea theater, the Luftwaffe continues smothering the island fortress of Malta with sortie after sortie of bombers, attacking ships, military targets, and civilian towns and cities.  Still, the people of Malta won’t submit to the Nazis and their Fascist Italian henchmen.
  39. 1943 Thursday: Craig “Stinkbug” Carrici was born in Pumpkin Center,[i] California, on this date; he is the founder of the AICP-END Blog.  Elsewhere, in the North African Theater of World War II, the British, the Americans, and the Free French and Free Poles continue pushing the Afrika Korps into an ever-shrinking corner of Tunisia.  As long as the Axis troops can continue the fight, they can keep Allied assets tied up there instead of being redeployed to other fronts.  Still, the end is coming and it’s coming soon.
  40. 1944 Saturday: John Barbata, future drummer of the Turtles[ii], the Jefferson Airplane[iii], the Jefferson Starship, and Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young[iv] was born on this date in Passaic, New Jersey.   Elsewhere, during the air war over occupied Europe, a grave error occurs today as 50 B-24 bombers flew into Switzerland’s airspace and bombed the wrong target, killing at least 40 or more civilians.  Pilots shot down over Switzerland of all sides were typically interned there until the end of the war and the Swiss were not big fans of the Allies, the United States in particular.  This mistake did not help things between the two countries.
  41. 1945 Sunday: American forces launched the amphibious invasion of Okinawa during World War II.  This would prove to be one of the costliest fights of World War II and the catastrophic loss of life on both sides would press President Harry S. Truman to authorize the dropping of atomic bombs onto the Japanese home islands in the hopes it would force them to surrender.
  42. 1946 Monday: Bassist Ronnie Lane of both the Small Faces[v] and the Faces[vi] was born in England.  Elsewhere, Weight Watchers formed.

  46. 1952 Tuesday: Alpher, Bethe, and Gamow proclaim the Big Bang Theory in Physical Review.
  47. 1953 Wednesday: Congress created the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare on this date.
  48. 1954 Thursday: The U.S. Air Force Academy forms on this date.  Elsewhere, future rock-and-roll drummer, Jeff Porcaro, who would play with Steely Dan[vii], Toto[viii], and others—was born in South Windsor, Connecticut, on this date.   Meanwhile, in the Battle of Dien Bien Phu, the People’s Army is launching massive attacks against the French Union, French Legionnaires, and local troops along the east side of the camp.  Huge artillery barrages precede human wave assaults where the communists spring out of trenches dug right up to the wire.  The battles being fought around the hilltop Eliane 2 are fierce but the French trade their shrinking perimeters for a high cost in communist blood.  Some of the French forces are beginning to weaken and Lt. Colonel “Gars Pierre” Langlais informs his command to cut the Thai auxiliaries loose.  No longer are they dependable.[ix]
  49. 1960 Friday: The United States launched TIROS-1, the nation’s first weather satellite on this date.
  50. 1961 Saturday: Evangelist Jim Bakker marries Tammy Faye.

  53. 1970 Wednesday: President Richard M. Nixon signs the Public Health Cigarette Smoking Act, an act that banned cigarette advertisements effective on January 1, 1971.  Meanwhile, for his part in the My Lai Massacre, the U.S. Army charged Captain Ernest Medina on this date.

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

  63. 2000 Saturday: The 2000 United States Census is underway as of today.
  64. 2001 Sunday: George W. Bush has not been in office long when his first international crisis occurs as a U.S. intelligence-gathering aircraft flying in international waters is intercepted and rammed by a Chi-Com fighter jet.  The U.S. plane is seriously damaged and is forced down in Chi-Com territory while the PRC warplane goes down in the ocean and sinks.  The Chi-Coms will keep our people prisoner and will take the spy plane apart one screw at a time.
  65. 2002 Monday: Palestinians continue causing problems for the Israelis and fighting between terrorists and Israeli Defense Forces continues.  Gradually, Israeli troops are pushing the rabid jihadists towards the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem where the human garbage will seek refuge from an Israeli ass-whooping.  
  66. 2003 Tuesday: American troops entered a hospital in Nasiriyah, Iraq, and rescued Army Pfc. Jessica Lynch, who had been held prisoner since jihadists ambushed her supply column on March 23.
  67. 2004 Thursday: Suffering from the effects of kidney and liver disease, Paul Atkinson—guitarist with the British rock band, the Zombies[x]—loses his fight with his maladies and dies in a hospital in Santa Monica, California; he was 58-years-old.

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

  62. 2021 Friday A: After massive outrage occurred over Tweeted videos of U.S. National Guard members sleeping in a parking garage in Washington, D.C., surfaced- in 32-degree and colder weather- First Lady Jill Biden went down there for photo ops, kissed, and made nice, and allowed them to return to the Capitol Building.  They were sent to the parking garage once their photo purpose was over- making it appear that the Capitol and the Inauguration was imminent threat of attack by Trump supporters because Democrats have NO LOVE for the American military.  Hence why Governors Greg Abbott, Texas, and Ron DeSantis, Florida, are calling their guard members home or vowing never to send them again.  Excellent.
  63. 2021 Friday B: Pressure is mounting on ‘President’ Joe Biden NOT to hire BIG TECH hacks to flesh out his White House communications department.  Meanwhile, Google is threatening to strip its search engine from Australia (there’s Mozilla, Opera, Bing, Safari, among others) because of a bill there that will charge Google for its news feeds.  BIG TECH trying to crush people and countries again yet loves the Chi-Coms.  Wow.  Elsewhere, Bloomberg News says it might be ‘difficult’ to ban Fox News Channel and Newsmax.  Where there’s a will, there’s a way, you frigging fascists.  Meanwhile, Google is shuttering Loon, an alternative to cellphone towers using balloons.
  64. 2021 Friday C: “Hammering Hank” Aaron baseball great received the COVID-19 vaccine as a way of encouraging fellow black folks to get the vaccine back on January 5.  On January 22, he is dead at age 86.  Chef Bea O’Malley of the AICPENDBLOG.COM says there is NO way her or her family is getting the vaccine because when white liberals encourage black folks to do something, it never works out good for them.  Speaking of the Chi-Vi, Dr. Tony Fauci, a guy who’s all over the ballpark and not in a good way says, he thinks we are plateauing out now what with ‘Usurper Joe’ Biden as our president.  Simultaneously, Great Britain says their variant of the Chi-Vi is not only more contagious but also more deadly.  Wow.   
  65. 2021 Friday D: ‘President’ Joe Biden is pushing stopgap measures while he tries to get Congress onboard with his $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief plan, a plan that will be funded with Chi-Com cash. In a sign of an ‘improving Biden economy,’ the ‘46th president’ is pushing for more food stamps like his former boss, Barack Obama, did back during the eight years of Obama-Biden.  Things were so good back then; food stamp usage was at an all-time historic high.  Guess we are returning to the GOOD OLD DAYS.  Likewise, he is pushing his $15 minimum wage increase for all federal workers which also is going to harm the economy.  In other interesting economic/labor news, Amazon.com is demanding IN-PERSON voting in the union vote in COVID-19-afflicted Alabama.  Amazon wants ‘in-person voting’ but in the 2020 Presidential Election, we couldn’t have ‘in person’ voting?  Tells you all you need to know: “86 46.”
  66. 2021 Friday E: House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer, and Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell plan to get the second impeachment trial of former President Donald J. Trump underway and soon.  However, constitutional scholars say you CANNOT impeach a former president.  I guess we shall see.  Former White House economic adviser Peter Navarro says you ‘forget unity’ if this bogus sham moves forward.   Speaking of impeachment, freshman Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Green- the famed MTG- has put forth articles of impeachment for the ‘46th president’ over his close ties to the
    Chi-Coms who are celebrating the NEW ‘Biden administration’ and the departure of Donald J. Trump.  It tells you all you need to know.  Congressman Steve Scalise, R-LA, also says ‘President’ Joe Biden should immediately nix the bogus impeachment of the out-of-office 45th president.  We concur.
  67. 2021 Friday F: Upon orders from ‘President’ Joe Biden, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers halts construction on the southern border wall.  There goes more interconnected jobs.   Senator Roger Marshall of Kansas says ‘President’ Joe Biden must reconsider stoppage of the Keystone XL Pipeline project.  He won’t.  Moving on, a unanimous votes puts Janet Yellen in as secretary of the U.S. Treasury while a nearly unanimous votes makes U.S. Army Gen. Lloyd Austin, Ret. In as secretary of Defense.  
  68. 2021 Friday G: Twitter finally cancels the scumbag ayatollah of Iran for calling death and destruction down upon Donald Trump.  What took you so long?   Speaking of former President Trump, his banks move to cancel him and his banking accounts.  Wow.  This is America?  Meanwhile, the Kremlin welcomes the ‘Biden administration’s’ return to extend the Open Skies Treaty between the U.S. and Russia but would like to see the details.  Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms are importing ‘doctored oil’ from Venezuela so as to sneak it past inspectors seeking to clamp down on oil imports from the totalitarian hellhole.  Elsewhere, in other interesting news, the city of Chicago has already experienced 1,125 violent carjackings just this year.  Who the hell wants to visit the Windy City?
  69. 2021 Friday H: Here are the numbers for the COVID-19 global pandemic, the planet first: 97,973,544 confirmed cases, +717,789, 2,101,894, confirmed deaths, +17,882, and 54,008,728 confirmed recoveries (lower than reported last week), +419,939.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 24,973,544 confirmed cases, up 477,526 from yesterday’s reporting, 415,653 confirmed deaths, UP 9,463, and 10,913,397 confirmed recoveries, UP 351,315.
  70. 2021 Friday I: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,115,704 confirmed cases, 35,768 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases (this number has not changed in a week), 328 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 300,420 confirmed cases, 4,131 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: New Hampshire: currently, they have 60,294 confirmed cases, 962 confirmed deaths, and 53,128 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 582,869 confirmed cases, 4,245 confirmed deaths, and 497,578 confirmed recoveries.   
  71. 2021 Friday J: For a laugh, let’s look at the Chi-Coms’ numbers- they say they have 88,701 cases, +247, 4,635 confirmed deaths, and 82,468 confirmed recoveries, +36.  This, of course, is ALL BULLS**T.  When we had contacts in Hong Kong, they said times the numbers by 100, 150, or 200 times and you would get a somewhat closer picture.  Rat-eating scum.  Speaking of the Chi-Vi, Amazon.com is offering to help the ‘Biden administration’ with distribution of the now-questionable vaccines.  They could have aided the previous president but nope, no flipping way.
  72. 2021 Friday K:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,996.98, DOWN 179.03 points (-0.57%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,543.06, UP 12.15 points (+0.09%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,841.47, DOWN 11.60 points (-0.30%).  The price of GOLD is $1,855.50 per troy oz., -0.70 (-0.40%) while the price of SILVER is $25.56 per troy ounce, +0.009 (+0.04%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,109.10 per troy oz, -2.50 (-0.22%) while the price of COPPER is $3.62 per pound, -0.0065 (-0.18%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,365.20 per troy oz, -9.90 (-0.42%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $51.98 per barrel, -0.29 (-0.55%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros while one-dollar U.S. = 6.48 Chi-Com yuan.  One-dollar U.S. = 0.000030 Bitcoin.  Next, one U.S. greenback = 75.15 Russian rubles.   In other economic news, U.S. house sales of existing homes hits its highest mark back in 2006 at an 0.22-percent increase due to a slowdown in new home construction.  However, we fear that unless the government provides aid to landlords, the Chi-Coms will become the de facto landowner in the U.S. via using strawman companies to snap up all available real estate.  We cannot permit something as outrageous as this EVER to happen.
  73. 2021 Friday L: Stay tuned for tonight’s Mega-Millions draw what with a $999 million jackpot up for grabs. Okay, here’s the numbers for Draw #1627 with NO BIG WINNER(S): 04, 26, 42, 50, 60, and Mega 24.  Out of 1,082,353 winning tickets, the highest winners were 26 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $11,036 apiece. UPDATE- although the California Lottery website shows the Mega Millions pot is now $20 million, it still is not showing that someone actually WON the pot, estimated to be $1.1 billion.  News media is reporting a sole winner in Michigan so we will update when we possess the information. FINAL UPDATE: one person won in Michigan won the big pot worth $1.01 billion.  Congratulations.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

After leaving UFO, guitarist Schenker formed a solo group- the Michael Schenker Group- and the self-titled debut came out on August 12, 1980.  Joining the legendary German guitarist were vocalist Gary Barden, Mo Foster (bass), Don Airey (keyboards), and Simon Phillips (drums).  In UFO, Schenker was difficult with which to work but here, he is running the show and the show is good.  We hope you will seek this one out because the man and his band would be with us for a long, long time.  You will enjoy this album so please, seek it out wherever you shop for the best in rock music- you can thank us later.
