2020 Thursday: President Donald J.

  57. 2018 Monday: Sadly, for people around the world, the Malaysian government announces that it has been unable to determine the causes that downed Flight MH370 somewhere in the Indian Ocean (or so people believe). It disappeared on March 08, 2014, with all 239 passengers and crew aboard. 
  58. 2019 Tuesday: Law enforcement in California released information on the shooter at the Gilroy Garlic Festival- 19-year-old Santino William Legan- the punk who murdered three people before the police shot the POS dead (gotta love the cops!). Apparently, the punk posted white supremacist text messages and racist content before he embarked on his shooting spree. Meanwhile, the U.S. Senate failed to override President Donald J. Trump’s vetoes on bills blocking arms sales to Saudi Arabia.  Politicians are angry over the murder of the journalist Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Turkey.
  59. 2020 Thursday: President Donald J. Trump sets the world ablaze when he questions the efficacy of mail-in ballots and proffers the suggestion that perhaps the November elections be postponed until this crazy system can be worked out. Folks, mail-in ballots are fraud waiting to occur. In June, the state of New York used mail-in ballots in their primary election and lo and behold, nearly seven weeks later, they are still trying to find out who won the various elections.  Meanwhile, former President Barack Hussein Obama- in his eulogy for deceased Rep. John Lewis, D-GA, lambastes President Trump for trying to steal the election, using voter intimidation and manipulation and God knows what other bull crap the former president could yank out of his mind and the attendees at the funeral, none of whom were sitting six-feet apart, leapt to their feet and applauded insanely for what seemed like hours.   Will Democrats NEVER continue trying to steal elections?  Enough is flipping enough, already, folks.  Finally, Herman Cain, former CEO of Godfather Pizza and GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain dies at age 74 from the Bat Virus sent around the world by the Chi-Coms.  Speaking of the Bat Flu:

[x]        
  68. 2021 Friday E: S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.356 per gallon, $2.976 in Florida, $4.090 in Hawaii, and $3.843 in Washington state. [xi] Let’s look at one other location- Kansas: $2.940.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Burundi: $4.591 per U.S. Gallon.[xii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,583,734,946,871 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xiii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Poland, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Philippines with $43 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  69. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Folks, the days continue passing us by and lo and behold, today is Day No. 129 for the purported ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 35 since her one and only visit to the region. Speaking of the regime for which the border czar labors, the Department of Justice is suing Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, for his order to HALT all further ground transportation of illegal aliens across the Lone Star State. Of course, the DOJ cannot have a governor fighting back but legal eagles say the Lone Star State’s case is going to be hard to topple.   
  70. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– One America News compiles the HONEST-TO-GOD numbers of the costs and numbers surrounding our illegal alien invasion and today is NO different. First, here is the cost for just this flipping day: $585,147,264.  Imagine all the good that money could do for the American people and lo and behold, it’s going to care for noncitizens who do not deserve to be here and who must be rounded up, imprisoned in the absolute worst conditions, deprogrammed to want to come here a la “A Clockwork Orange,” and then deported via any means available.  How about we ship them to communist China?  Second, here is the cost this year of caring for the invaders: $230,722,174,976.    So much money going down the crapper, folks; we must round up all of them- including the DREAMERS and any other foals calved here and ship them back NOW.  Third, here is the number of estimated illegals who have swamped the U.S. in 2021 alone: 2,364,717.  Finally, here is the fourth and final statistic, the number of illegal aliens estimated to be running amok across the United States: 36,364,710.  Remember, this is a CONSERVATIVE NUMBER.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  We tend to disagree with the final number as we said as far back as 2009 that the numbers then were between 35-50 million whereas now, we believe the number to be closer to 75-100 million which means we have an invasion army already living in our midst.  Time to exercise the 2nd Amendment…(to protect ourselves).
  71. 2021 Friday H: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, and Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-TX 28th congressional district, have joined forces to demand the Biden regime awaken to the dangers of unchecked mass immigration into the United States from nearly 160 nations around the globe. Entire neighborhoods and towns are being overrun with illegal aliens and people are beginning to fight back and to end this unconstitutional mess.
  72. 2021 Friday I: Foreign News / Overseas News I– As ‘Gropin’ Joe’ Biden continues playing pocket pool in the White House basement, national security experts are growing concerned over the Chi-Coms ramped up silo-building. Silos are where intercontinental ballistic missiles- ICBMs- reside and it’s clear the Chi-Coms are constructing them like flies have maggots. We believe it may be time to launch a pre-emptive strike on the Chi-Coms before they go to war against the Free World.
  73. 2021 Friday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Yesterday, Il Duce Joe Biden said that ALL federal employees and contractors will be required to get vaccinated for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu or face never-ending mask-wearing, 2-3, perhaps even 4 tests a week (could be anal ones like the Chi-Coms favor for all international travelers) as well as being prohibited from traveling for job-related matters. Thus, the American Fuhrer has spoken. Yet, we learn that in places such as Massachusetts where a major outbreak of the Chi-Com Yellow Fever is underway, there seems to be a pandemic of the vaccinated, NOT the vaccinated as the liberal goobers claim.  Hence why NONE of us are going to get vaccinated for this bogus virus crisis (we have urgent care centers willing to dish out hydroxychloroquine tablets and vitamin D injections).   Yesterday, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, put forth a bill which will hold the Centers for Disease Control accountable for all the lies and propaganda they continue spewing on the Chi-Vi.
  74. 2021 Friday K: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Broadway is mandating that all behind-the-scenes personnel as well as performers AND all attendees wear masks as well as present proof of vaccination. Uh, okay. Speaking of mass mask stupidity, Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-NY 22nd congressional district, says ‘it’s amazing: right across the hall in the U.S. Senate, NO MASKS.’  It’s as if by magic.  In other COVID-19 news, the Xi Jinping Bat Flu has snared approximately 2 million Americans in a passport backlog.  Next, the House GOP is demanding that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci and other top COVID-19 scientists testify on the Hill.   Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says that ‘Pelosi’s mask mandates are a massive overreach of her powers.’
  75. 2021 Friday L: Joe Biden News I– While Joe Biden was at some function, people noticed he had a yellow booger hanging off his chin, something of which, he was unaware. One of his aides, however, rushed to his side, handed him a note saying, ‘something’s on your chin.’ He wiped the snot off and according to some either stuck it in his mouth as though he were still in kindergarten (in his mind, he seemingly still is) or wiped it on the tabletop.  Either way, he remains our national disgrace and humiliation.  In other Joe Biden news, he took a BIG ONE on the chin when House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi was unable to prevent the evictions moratorium collapse as of tomorrow morning.  It looks like the mentally decrepit, nonagenarian speaker is folding like a deck of cards. 
  76. 2021 Friday M: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Department of Justice says that the Internal Revenue Service MUST hand President Donald J. Trump’s tax records over to the angry Democrat goons in the U.S. House of Representatives.
  77. 2021 Friday N: Political News I– Lee Zeldin, R-NY 1st congressional district, says that the ‘nursing home probe into deaths in New York’ caused by the indifference or worse, by design of Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov ‘should continue.’ Elsewhere, new polling out of Wyoming shows that Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY At-Large congressional district, is in deep, deep trouble with the voters. She deserves it.  Next, we continue to learn about the duplicitous activities of the Catholic Charities spreading illegal aliens across the United States regardless as to whether they have the Chi-Vi or other diseases or not.  This is not good and it causing many of our Catholic members to lapse in their church support.   Finally, the Wisconsin Republicans are working at expanding the state’s 2020 Election probe.  Good for them.
  78. 2021 Friday O: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1681 what with a $166 million jackpot on the line: 19, 26, 31, 52, 68, and Mega 10. Out of 77,695 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were 37 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $568 apiece.2022 Saturday: Hubbub continues from Tuesday’s extremely peculiar and wholly unnatural ‘speech’ by slobbering Joe Biden, you know, the one where he mumbled and stumbled through his verbal assault on President Donald J. Trump with his unblinking eyes wide open.  It’s as if he has a ‘Dr. Morrell’ in his employ, the doctor who ‘treated’ Adolf Hitler throughout the war years.  Dr. Morrell used to inject the Fuhrer with all manner of things such as vitamins, methamphetamine, even bull semen, to make his Fuhrer less crazy and more in control, none of which worked.  The Joe Biden ‘speech’ made me think of one of those ‘G.I. Joe’ movies where America’s enemies replaced the president with a look-alike clone.  It also makes me think of those lifelike dolls the Japanese use as sexual partners, whatever drooling Joe is doing, I doubt it’s truly him.  We have never been in a situation such as this.  Let me know what you think- Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0907 a 20” x 24” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Cave in the Rocks.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclees, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next studio album from Beach Boys genius, Brian Wilson- “Gettin’ In Over My Head”- came out on June 22, 2004.  Like Pete Townsend and his “Lighthouse” project that never made it to completion, Brian Wilson was working on two different projects during the 1990s, both of which never made it to fruition.  The music was there and he went back and reworked it and brought it to the public in all its radiant glory.  Brian Wilson’s band of musicians joined him as did four big guests, Elton John, Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney, and Carl Wilson as well as other studio hotshots brought in to help him finish the project.  Fans raved over the album as do we which is why we encourage everyone to seek this one out wherever it is they shop for the absolute best in music- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

15. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, JANUARY 15, 2022

58. 2021 Friday A: And so, it begins: Federal prosecutors seek Donald Trump Jr. for ‘questioning.’ Questioning for what, pray tell? Meanwhile, a Trump deputy in the White House is reassuring staffers in the era of Cancel Culture that they will be ‘okay,’ even as Harvard is on the edge of bowing to its students and stripping Kayleigh McEnany of her advanced law degree.

  54. 2018 Monday: Protests marking the seventh anniversary of the revolution in Tunis, Tunisia, turn violent as people begin protesting the current government.  Elsewhere, the Turkish government threatens to take actions against the U.S.-backed Syrian Border Security Force while the government of Bashar al-Assad threatens to extinguish all U.S. operations within his crappy country.  Neither does anything.  Meanwhile, as a former CIA officer tries to fly out of New York, authorities swoop in and arrest the POS Jerry Chun Shing-Lee on charges of espionage for- you guessed it- communist China.  After he left the Central Intelligence Agency, he retained all manner of info in notebooks and handed it over to his handlers.
  55. 2019 Tuesday: LGBTQIA+ activists accuse the government of Chechnya, a well-known place of ‘tolerance’ of a pogrom against gays what with 40 detained and two slain.  Meanwhile, a witness in the trial of Mexican drug lord, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman claims that former Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto took a bribe of $100 million from the cartel to look the other way.  Elsewhere, South Korean officials announce that North Korean officials will be visiting the United States to discuss setting up a second summit between President Donald J. Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.
  56. 2020 Wednesday: Multi-instrumentalist with the British band Kaleidoscope- Chris Darrow- died on this date.  Elsewhere, CNN reports that a Delta Airlines jetliner approaching LAX dumped fuel during its descent which fell on local schools.  At least 60 or more students were rushed to the hospital for treatment.  The authorities are investigating the incident.  Meanwhile, Sudanese government forces announce they have quelled a violent mutiny by members of its armed forces in the capital city of Khartoum.   
  57. 2021 Friday: A recent poll says that 9 out of 10 Americans oppose the Capitol Hill riots of January 6, the ones in which, Antifa infiltrated its commandoes amongst supporters of the 45th president to discredit them, in much the same way they have since the Charlottesville clashes between Antifa and white supremacists, BOTH groups we believe were set in motion by ONE entity: the Chi-Coms via their stooges in the Democratic Party.   Meanwhile, drooling House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi announces she is appointing retired U.S. Army General Russell Honoré- of Hurricane Katrina fame- to lead a task force to investigate how to transform the Capitol Building from a ‘soft target’ into a ‘hard one.’  One of the things she can do is not to tell Capitol Hill police officers to stand aside and motion Antifa thugs inside.  Furthermore, Madam Speaker cannot say when the second impeachment trial for President Trump will begin.  Next, lawmakers author a bi-partisan bill to honor slain Capitol Hill police officer Brian Sicknick.  God bless him.  
  58. 2021 Friday A: And so, it begins: Federal prosecutors seek Donald Trump Jr. for ‘questioning.’   Questioning for what, pray tell?  Meanwhile, a Trump deputy in the White House is reassuring staffers in the era of Cancel Culture that they will be ‘okay,’ even as Harvard is on the edge of bowing to its students and stripping Kayleigh McEnany of her advanced law degree.  Next, Trump campaign lawyer Jenna Ellis tells Newsmax TV that ‘this impeachment is no different’ and that it’s an ‘abuse of the U.S. Constitution.’  Meanwhile, Ric Grenell tells Newsmax TV that the ‘D.C. media has switched from the news to advocacy for all left-wing causes.’  Rudy Giuliani believes it’s all a scheme to prevent #45 from running for office again.  Finally, also to Newsmax TV, Dick Morris- famed political strategist and consultant- says that ‘impeachment and the 25th Amendment are watering down the presidency.’  NO- the AICPENDBLOG.COM believes the Democrats and the RINOS are trying to replace the presidency with a parliamentary system in which the party in power chooses who will be the figurehead.
  59. 2021 Friday B: New York State news- a new bill in Albany would make it illegal for New Yorkers to own or buy body armor.  Why?  Elsewhere in New York City, we now learn that thanks to the criminal mismanagement by Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo and addle-brained NYC Mayor Bill Di Blasio, more than 372,000 private businesses have been destroyed in the Big Apple, never to return, many of them in professional foodservice and hospitality. 
  60. 2021 Friday C: Due to ‘security threats’ in Washington, D.C., the Inauguration Day rehearsal for ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden has been pushed back to Monday. We learn that J-Lo and Lady Gaga are going to be among the left-wing performers celebrating the ‘victory’ of the incoming senile 46th ‘president.’  Next, according to Rush Limbaugh, the feds are rushing 25,000 troops into Washington, D.C. to prevent against the expected (Antifa-caused) violence on Wednesday, January 20.  (According to the talk show mega-giant, this is more troops than are currently station in BOTH Iraq and Afghanistan).  Speaking of the riots, the FBI reports that the Capitol Hill mobs planned to assassinate leaders.  Again, this sounds like Antifa and BLM human garbage, not Trump supporters.  Meanwhile, Mr. Biden chooses former FDA Chief David Kessler to head Operation Warp Speed. 
  61. 2021 Friday D: In a peculiar move, Oklahoma Senator James Lankford, a Republican, apologizes to black Tulsans for having opposed the certification of “President-elect Pro-China Joe” Biden.  Why?  What was racist about questioning the certification?  Dimwit.

  62. 2021 Friday E: Elsewhere, a new poll shows that a vast majority of Republicans and swing state voters favor hiring U.S. workers before hiring illegal aliens.  Next, the Wyoming Republican Party is unhappy with Congresswoman Liz Cheney, one of their own, who was among the 10 RINO Republicans to vote for the SECOND IMPEACHMENT OF PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP.  (Note- those 10 representatives and four of their counterparts in the U.S. Senate- Lisa Murkowski, RINO-Alaska, Ben Sasse, RINO-Nebraska, Pat Toomey, RINO-Pennsylvania, and Mitt Romney, RINO-Utah, we believe will make it onto the list of nominees for the Fourth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award to be awarded in January 2022).
  63. 2021 Friday F: Fossilized ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden announces his COVID-19/Stimulus Plan: first, $20 billion for a national vaccination program.  Second, $50 billion for expanded testing, treatment, and tracing programs.  Third, $2,000 stimulus checks for all illegal aliens and American citizens.  Fourth and final, $15 minimum wage for federal entry level jobs.  Economist Stephen Moore says that the final peg of Beijing Joe’s stimulus plan will cost ‘4 million additional American jobs.’  WTF?  Next, the U.S. Secret Service is telling its officers in the run-up to Inauguration Day to remain ‘professional’ and ‘non-partisan.’  Meanwhile, the IRS announces it’s behind on 7 million tax returns from last year all because of COVID-19.
  64. 2021 Friday G: Russia cites the U.S. withdrawal from the Open Skies Treaty as its reason for leaving the agreement.  In Great Britain, it would appear that Mask Sharia is on the way there as the British government says, ‘people may have to wear masks forever.’  Wow.  Coming soon to a country near you?  Elsewhere, Dunkin’ Donuts has created a new biodegradable straw.  Congratulations.  Next, a Mickey Mantle baseball card sold for $5.2 million setting an all-time record.  Elsewhere, Joanne Roberts, widow of Mr. Rogers, dies at age 92.  Meanwhile, President Trump plans to hold an event as outgoing president on Inauguration Day at same time senile Old Joe is scheduled to place his quivering hand atop a Bible.

  67. 2021 Friday J:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,814.26, DOWN 177.26 points (-0.57%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,998.50, DOWN 114.14 points (-0.87%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,768.25, DOWN 27.29 points (-0.72%).  The price of GOLD is $1,827.70 per troy oz., -2.20 (-0.12%) while the price of SILVER is $24.83 per troy ounce, -0.036 (-0.14%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,078.70 per troy oz, -11.20 (-1.03%) while the price of COPPER is $3.50 per pound, -0.001 (-0.03%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,395.10 per troy oz, -28.20 (-1.16%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.04 per barrel, -0.32 (-0.61%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.48 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Hong Kong dollars equals 7.75.  In other economic news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue says the government ‘declared martial law by imposing the harsh COVID-19 lockdowns on the American people.’  How right you are, sir!
  68. 2021 Friday K: Senator Lindsey Graham, RINO-SC, says that the Mueller probe into Trump-Russia collusion- Crossfire Hurricane- was ‘the most incompetent’ and ‘most corrupt’ investigation ever conducted by the FBI and the Department of Justice.  Meanwhile, Vice President Mike Pence speaks with Vice President-elect “Kooky Kamala” Harris on the phone.  The incoming VP says she hopes for a ‘peaceful transition of power.’  Next, NY prosecutors drag former Trump attorney Michael Cohen in to answer questions about the 45th president’s finances.    Speaking of losers like Michael Cohen, Lt. Gov. Duncan of the Peach State snivels to reporters that the ‘Georgia statehouse is absolutely less safe now because of Donald Trump.’  Lt. Gov. Duncan- you should not have worked to throw the election to “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his Chi-Com masters who now are YOUR masters.
  69. 2021 Friday L: Currently, the feds are investigating 37 people for their part in the deaths that occurred during the Capitol Hill Riots of January 6.  Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, she whose pendulous breasts droop down to her waist, says, ‘there will be prosecutions for ALL House members who aided the (Antifa/Black Lives Matter) ‘Trump mob’ in storming the building.  We guess this means that YOU, Madam Speaker, will stand at the head of the line seeing as how YOU and ONLY YOU are in charge of the Capitol Hill PD.  Steven Sund, outgoing Capitol Hill police chief begged for help on at least SIX occasions with no help coming which means YOU stopped help from coming which means BLOOD is on YOUR HANDS.  We await YOUR prosecution! 
  70. 2021 Friday M: President Donald J. Trump orders U.S. Military Command for the Middle East to incorporate Israel into its organization so as to hasten Arab-Israeli military cooperation in defending against the Iranian scum.   Meanwhile, Apple CEO Tim Cook says that ‘Parler might make it back online provided they do something about moderating (censoring) content.  Elsewhere, the National Rifle Association files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy protections.  Finally, Rep.

  72. 2021 Friday O: Here are the results for tonight’s massive Mega Millions Draw #1625 with a pot of around $725 million at stake: 03, 11, 12, 38, 43, and Mega 15.  Out of 643,493 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers BUT NO MEGA for a prize of $1,225,193.  Meanwhile, Alex Azar, Health and Human Services secretary offers his resignation, citing the Capitol Hill Riots as his reason for leaving the administration.   Elsewhere, we learn today that Bill Gates of Microsoft fame is the largest owner of private farmland in the United States with 242,000 acres.  Finally, in the waning days of the Trump administration, an asteroid the size of the Empire State Building, about 4.4 million miles from the Earth which is about 18 times the average distance between our planet and the moon.
  73. 2021 Friday P: The government of Morocco awards President Donald J. Trump the Order of Mohammad, the nation’s highest decoration, for his work in creating a framework of peace for Arab nations and Israel.  The ceremony occurred at the White House in a private ceremony.  Congratulations, Mr. President.  Let’s see if your successor keeps the framework of the Abraham Accords in place or tosses them on the rubbish heap and returns to brown-nosing the Palestinians.  Elsewhere, One America News reports growing evidence that foreign nations such as communist China interfered in our elections, NOT just in the 2020 Presidential Election but also in several state elections.  WHY aren’t the liberals braying about ‘ELECTION INTERFERENCE?’  Because we believe Beijing and their bought-and-paid-for stooges in the Democratic Party and among the RINO wing of the GOP conspired with them to deny President Trump his much-deserved second term.   Meanwhile, Norway reports 11 deaths connected to the vaccine for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.
  74. 2022 Saturday: Stick around for the latest…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next live effort by Fairport Convention was the wonderful “Off the Desk” (June 14, 2006). As always, these musical veterans deliver a powerful live show that sees them draw millions of fans to their music year after year.  People hunger for the OLD music because much of the new music- ahem, like Maroon Five, the Jonas Brothers, and other twits SUCKS. The band included virtuoso Andy Guttridge (acoustic guitars), Ric Sanders (violins), Dave Pegg (acoustic and electric basses, and tenor mandola), Simon Nichol (guitars and vocals), Gerry Conway (drums), and Chris Leslie (mandolins, fiddles, cellos, and flutes).  The two discs contain 22 classic tunes as only this veteran band can deliver which is why we encourage everyone to rush out to their favorite record shop and pick it up.  You will be glad you did, that we guarantee.

  52. 2017 Sunday:  Communist Chinese President for life Xi Jinping leads a military parade in Inner Mongolia at the Zhurihe training facility, celebrating 90 years of the People’s Liberation Army.  Big whoop!   Meanwhile, another thug- Vladimir Putin- announces he has slashed the numbers of American diplomats in his pro-communist country by 755 due in part to President Trump putting sanctions on the country.
  53. 2018 Monday:  Sadly for people around the world, the Malaysian government announces that it has been unable to determine the causes that downed Flight MH370 somewhere in the Indian Ocean (or so people believe).   It disappeared on March 08, 2014 with all 239 passengers and crew aboard. 
  54. 2019 Tuesday: Law enforcement in California released information on the shooter at the Gilroy Garlic Festival- 19-year-old Santino William Legan- the punk who murdered three people before the police shot the POS dead (gotta love the cops!).  Apparently, the punk posted white supremacist text messages and racist content before he embarked on his shooting spree.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Senate failed to override President Donald J. Trump’s vetoes on bills blocking arms sales to Saudi Arabia.  Politicians are angry over the murder of the journalist Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Turkey.
  55. 2020 Thursday: President Donald J. Trump sets the world ablaze when he questions the efficacy of mail-in ballots and proffers the suggestion that perhaps the November elections be postponed until this crazy system can be worked out.  Folks, mail-in ballots are fraud waiting to occur.  In June, the state of New York used mail-in ballots in their primary election and lo and behold, nearly seven weeks later, they are still trying to find out who won the various elections.  Meanwhile, former President Barack Hussein Obama- in his eulogy for deceased Congressman John Lewis, D-GA, lambastes President Trump for trying to steal the election, using voter intimidation and manipulation and God knows what other bull crap the former president could yank out of his mind and the attendees at the funeral, none of whom were sitting six-feet apart, leapt to their feet and applauded insanely for what seemed like hours.  Wow.  Will Democrats NEVER continue trying to steal elections?  Enough is flipping enough, already, folks.  Finally, Herman Cain, former CEO of Godfather Pizza and GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain dies at age 74 from the Bat Virus sent around the world by the Chi-Coms.  Speaking of the Bat Flu:

  55. 2021 Friday: A recent poll says that 9 out of 10 Americans oppose the Capitol Hill riots of January 6, the ones in which, Antifa infiltrated its commandoes amongst supporters of the 45th president to discredit them, in much the same way they have since the Charlottesville clashes between Antifa and white supremacists, BOTH groups we believe were set in motion by ONE entity: the Chi-Coms via their stooges in the Democratic Party.   Meanwhile, drooling House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi announces she is appointing retired U.S. Army General Russell Honoré- of Hurricane Katrina fame- to lead a task force to investigate how to transform the Capitol Building from a ‘soft target’ into a ‘hard one.’  One of the things she can do is not to tell Capitol Hill police officers to stand aside and motion Antifa thugs inside.  Furthermore, Madam Speaker cannot say when the second impeachment trial for President Trump will begin.  Next, lawmakers author a bi-partisan bill to honor slain Capitol Hill police officer Brian Sicknick.  God bless him.  
  56. 2021 Friday A: And so it begins: Federal prosecutors seek Donald Trump Jr. for ‘questioning.’   Questioning for what, pray tell?  Meanwhile, a Trump deputy in the White House is reassuring staffers in the era of Cancel Culture that they will be ‘okay,’ even as Harvard is on the edge of bowing to its students and stripping Kayleigh McEnany of her advanced law degree.  Next, Trump campaign lawyer Jenna Ellis tells Newsmax TV that ‘this impeachment is no different’ and that it’s an ‘abuse of the U.S. Constitution.’  Meanwhile, Ric Grenell tells Newsmax TV that the ‘D.C. media has switched from the news to advocacy for all left-wing causes.’  Rudy Giuliani believes it’s all a scheme to prevent #45 from running for office again.  Finally, also to Newsmax TV, Dick Morris- famed political strategist and consultant- says that ‘impeachment and the 25th Amendment are watering down the presidency.’  NO- the AICPENDBLOG.COM believes the Democrats and the RINOS are trying to replace the presidency with a parliamentary system in which the party in power chooses who will be the figurehead.
  57. 2021 Friday B: New York State news- a new bill in Albany would make it illegal for New Yorkers to own or buy body armor.  Why?  Elsewhere in New York City, we now learn that thanks to the criminal mismanagement by Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo and addle-brained NYC Mayor Bill Di Blasio, more than 372,000 private businesses have been destroyed in the Big Apple, never to return, many of them in professional foodservice and hospitality. 
  58. 2021 Friday C: Due to ‘security threats’ in Washington, D.C., the Inauguration Day rehearsal for ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden has been pushed back to Monday. We learn that J-Lo and Lady Gaga are going to be among the left-wing performers celebrating the ‘victory’ of the incoming senile 46th ‘president.’  Next, according to Rush Limbaugh, the feds are rushing 25,000 troops into Washington, D.C. to prevent against the expected (Antifa-caused) violence on Wednesday, January 20.  (According to the talk show mega-giant, this is more troops than are currently station in BOTH Iraq and Afghanistan).  Speaking of the riots, the FBI reports that the Capitol Hill mobs planned to assassinate leaders.  Again, this sounds like Antifa and BLM human garbage, not Trump supporters.  Meanwhile, Mr. Biden chooses former FDA Chief David Kessler to head Operation Warp Speed. 
  59. 2021 Friday D: In a peculiar move, Oklahoma Senator James Lankford, a Republican, apologizes to black Tulsans for having opposed the certification of “President-elect Pro-China Joe” Biden.  Why?  What was racist about questioning the certification?  Dimwit. Next, the media appears to have twisted the remarks of Senator Tommy Tuberville, R-Alabama, in suggesting a delay on Biden’s certification.   
  60. 2021 Friday E: Elsewhere, a new poll shows that a vast majority of Republicans and swing state voters favor hiring U.S. workers before hiring illegal aliens.  Next, the Wyoming Republican Party is unhappy with Congresswoman Liz Cheney, one of their own, who was among the 10 RINO Republicans to vote for the SECOND IMPEACHMENT OF PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP.  (Note- those 10 representatives and four of their counterparts in the U.S. Senate- Lisa Murkowski, RINO-Alaska, Ben Sasse, RINO-Nebraska, Pat Toomey, RINO-Pennsylvania, and Mitt Romney, RINO-Utah, we believe will make it onto the list of nominees for the Fourth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award to be awarded in January 2022).
  61. 2021 Friday F: Fossilized ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden announces his COVID-19/Stimulus Plan: first, $20 billion for a national vaccination program.  Second, $50 billion for expanded testing, treatment, and tracing programs.  Third, $2,000 stimulus checks for all illegal aliens and American citizens.  Fourth and final, $15 minimum wage for federal entry level jobs.  Economist Stephen Moore says that the final peg of Beijing Joe’s stimulus plan will cost ‘4 million additional American jobs.’  WTF?  Next, the U.S. Secret Service is telling its officers in the run-up to Inauguration Day to remain ‘professional’ and ‘non-partisan.’  Meanwhile, the IRS announces it’s behind on 7 million tax returns from last year all because of COVID-19.
  62. 2021 Friday G: Russia cites the U.S. withdrawal from the Open Skies Treaty as its reason for leaving the agreement.  In Great Britain, it would appear that Mask Sharia is on the way there as the British government says, ‘people may have to wear masks forever.’  Wow.  Coming soon to a country near you?  Elsewhere, Dunkin’ Donuts has created a new biodegradable straw.  Congratulations.  Next, a Mickey Mantle baseball card sold for $5.2 million setting an all-time record.  Elsewhere, Joanne Roberts, widow of Mr. Rogers, dies at age 92.  Meanwhile, President Trump plans to hold an event as outgoing president on Inauguration Day at same time senile Old Joe is scheduled to place his quivering hand atop a Bible.
  63. 2021 Friday H: Here are the numbers for the COVID-19 global pandemic, the planet first: 93,275,676 confirmed cases, +424,993, 2,000,905, confirmed deaths, +12,615, and 55,500,681 confirmed recoveries, +271,674.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 23,489,378 confirmed cases, up 108,386 from yesterday’s reporting, 390,378 confirmed deaths, UP 1,434, and 10,262,463 confirmed recoveries, UP 28,136.

  65. 2021 Friday J:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,814.26, DOWN 177.26 points (-0.57%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,998.50, DOWN 114.14 points (-0.87%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,768.25, DOWN 27.29 points (-0.72%).  The price of GOLD is $1,827.70 per troy oz., -2.20 (-0.12%) while the price of SILVER is $24.83 per troy ounce, -0.036 (-0.14%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,078.70 per troy oz, -11.20 (-1.03%) while the price of COPPER is $3.50 per pound, -0.001 (-0.03%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,395.10 per troy oz, -28.20 (-1.16%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.04 per barrel, -0.32 (-0.61%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.48 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Hong Kong dollars equals 7.75.  In other economic news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue says the government ‘declared martial law by imposing the harsh COVID-19 lockdowns on the American people.’  How right you are, sir!
  66. 2021 Friday K: Senator Lindsey Graham, RINO-SC, says that the Mueller probe into Trump-Russia collusion- Crossfire Hurricane- was ‘the most incompetent’ and ‘most corrupt’ investigation ever conducted by the FBI and the Department of Justice.  Meanwhile, Vice President Mike Pence speaks with Vice President-elect “Kooky Kamala” Harris on the phone.  The incoming VP says she hopes for a ‘peaceful transition of power.’  Next, NY prosecutors drag former Trump attorney Michael Cohen in to answer questions about the 45th president’s finances.    Speaking of losers like Michael Cohen, Lt. Gov. Duncan of the Peach State snivels to reporters that the ‘Georgia statehouse is absolutely less safe now because of Donald Trump.’  Lt. Gov. Duncan- you should not have worked to throw the election to “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his Chi-Com masters who now are YOUR masters.
  67. 2021 Friday L: Currently, the feds are investigating 37 people for their part in the deaths that occurred during the Capitol Hill Riots of January 6.  Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, she whose pendulous breasts droop down to her waist, says, ‘there will be prosecutions for ALL House members who aided the (Antifa/Black Lives Matter) ‘Trump mob’ in storming the building.  We guess this means that YOU, Madam Speaker, will stand at the head of the line seeing as how YOU and ONLY YOU are in charge of the Capitol Hill PD.  Steven Sund, outgoing Capitol Hill police chief begged for help on at least SIX occasions with no help coming which means YOU stopped help from coming which means BLOOD is on YOUR HANDS.  We await YOUR prosecution! 
  68. 2021 Friday M: President Donald J. Trump orders U.S. Military Command for the Middle East to incorporate Israel into its organization so as to hasten Arab-Israeli military cooperation in defending against the Iranian scum.   Meanwhile, Apple CEO Tim Cook says that ‘Parler might make it back online provided they do something about moderating (censoring) content.  Elsewhere, the National Rifle Association files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy protections.  Finally, Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas rips ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden for his plagiarizing yet again someone else’s work- the COVID-19 Relief Bill. 
  69. 2021 Friday N: Elsewhere, the Atlanta Falcons hire Tennessee Titans OC Arthur Smith as their next head coach.   Note- we would love to see Matt Ryan make it to another super bowl.    Speaking of the NFL, two games tomorrow in the Divisional Round- L.A. Rams @ Green Bay Packers at 1:35 P.M. and Baltimore
  70. Ravens @ the Buffalo Bills @ 5:15 P.M.  Then on Sunday, we have two more games- Cleveland Browns @ Kansas City Chiefs @ 12:05 P.M. and Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ New Orleans Saints @ 3:40 P.M.
  71. 2021 Friday O: Here are the results for tonight’s massive Mega Millions Draw #1625 with a pot of around $725 million at stake: 03, 11, 12, 38, 43, and Mega 15.  Out of 643,493 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers BUT NO MEGA for a prize of $1,225,193.  Meanwhile, Alex Azar, Health and Human Services secretary offers his resignation, citing the Capitol Hill Riots as his reason for leaving the administration.   Elsewhere, we learn today that Bill Gates of Microsoft fame is the largest owner of private farmland in the United States with 242,000 acres.  Finally, in the waning days of the Trump administration, an asteroid the size of the Empire State Building, about 4.4 million miles from the Earth which is about 18 times the average distance between our planet and the moon.
  72. 2021 Friday P: The government of Morocco awards President Donald J. Trump the Order of Mohammad, the nation’s highest decoration, for his work in creating a framework of peace for Arab nations and Israel.  The ceremony occurred at the White House in a private ceremony.  Congratulations, Mr. President.  Let’s see if your successor keeps the framework of the Abraham Accords in place or tosses them on the rubbish heap and returns to brown-nosing the Palestinians.  Elsewhere, One America News reports growing evidence that foreign nations such as communist China interfered in our elections, NOT just in the 2020 Presidential Election but also in several state elections.  WHY aren’t the liberals braying about ‘ELECTION INTERFERENCE?’  Because we believe Beijing and their bought-and-paid-for stooges in the Democratic Party and among the RINO wing of the GOP conspired with them to deny President Trump his much-deserved second term.   Meanwhile, Norway reports 11 deaths connected to the vaccine for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Once again, UFO went into the studio and delivered another powerhouse effort- “Force It”- on July 15, 1975.  The lineup featured Phil Mogg (vocals), Andy Parker (drums), Michael Schenker (guitars), and Pete Way (bass).  Famed bassist for Ten Years After- Leo Lyons- was the producer while his band mate, Chick Churchill played keyboards, the first time ever on a UFO record.  The cover was somewhat suggestive and created a buzz more so in the United States than anywhere else in the world and added to album sales.  “Shoot-Shoot” and “Let It Roll” became fan favorites in their live shows which is enough for us to say: seek this one out NOW-you will be glad you did.  Enjoy!

Trump’s vetoes on bills blocking arms sales to Saudi Arabia.  Politicians are angry over the murder of the journalist Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Turkey.
  52. 2020 Thursday: President Donald J. Trump sets the world ablaze when he questions the efficacy of mail-in ballots and proffers the suggestion that perhaps the November elections be postponed until this crazy system can be worked out.  Folks, mail-in ballots are fraud waiting to occur.  In June, the state of New York used mail-in ballots in their primary election and lo and behold, nearly seven weeks later, they are still trying to find out who won the various elections.  Meanwhile, former President Barack Hussein Obama- in his eulogy for deceased Congressman John Lewis, D-GA, lambastes President Trump for trying to steal the election, using voter intimidation and manipulation and God knows what other bull crap the former president could yank out of his mind and the attendees at the funeral, none of whom were sitting six-feet apart, leapt to their feet and applauded insanely for what seemed like hours.  Wow.  Will Democrats NEVER continue trying to steal elections?  Enough is flipping enough, already, folks.  Finally, Herman Cain, former CEO of Godfather Pizza and GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain dies at age 74 from the Bat Virus sent around the world by the Chi-Coms.  Speaking of the Bat Flu:

#ST0001.1r Some Things #18 07-02-2020 (400)

 

Following the changes of “Free as a Bird,” Supertramp returned to the sound that made them famous when they released “Some Things Never Change” on March 24, 1997.   The band now featured Rick Davies (keyboards, vocals, harmonicas), John Anthony Helliwell (saxophones, flutes, vocals), Cliff Hugo (bass), Mark Hart and Carl Verheyen (guitars, backing and lead vocals), and Bob Seibenberg (drums and percussion) along with a few others to add seasoning to the music.  Any band with a more than two-decade (or more) history undergoes changes, sometimes for the best, others for the worst, but this is a welcome return to the sound that made them monsters of the music tours back in the day.  We know you are going to enjoy this fine recording so please, seek for it now and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.
