2019 Thursday: Attorney General William “Bill” Barr releases a redacted version of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s findings on whether then candidate Donald J. Trump conspired with the Russkies to win the 2016 Presidential Election. The findings found NO trace of any collusion between Vladimir Putin and candidate Trump but also did not entirely clear President Trump of other ‘alleged’ or ‘suspected wrongdoings.’ Foaming-at-the-mouth Democrats were screaming, “See! See! The report did not say Trump didn’t collude; no, it only said no evidence could be uncovered.’ Ah, gee whiz, and so it goes…

  49. 2005 Monday: In the Papal Conclave of 2005, senior cardinals signal no new pope has been chosen by sending up black smoke, the traditional method of signaling no decision.  When white smoke goes up, they have made their choice and will inform the world.  We will await the decision.

  56. 2012 Wednesday: The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission together complete rules to limit which firms are required to register with either or both agencies as ‘swap dealers.’  Elsewhere, the wimpified U.S. military is condemning photos of U.S. servicemen posing with the corpses of mangled suicide bombers.  At least two such incidents occurred.  (Note- they should have seen photos from the Vietnam War.  It was what it was).
  57. 2013 Thursday: Kepler-62e and Kepler-62f, two planets resembling planet Earth are discovered revolving around the star Kepler-62 in the habitable zone, an area around the stars whose atmospheric pressure can support liquid water at the surface.   Elsewhere, President Barack Obama visits the city of Boston.  Meanwhile, as a condition of talking to the Obama administration, North Korea demands that all UN-imposed sanctions on their country be lifted or screw off.
  58. 2014 Friday: About 80 miles northwest of the resort town of Acapulco, Mexico, a 7.2-magnitude earthquake hits but the authorities report only minimal damage.  Elsewhere, in the Ukrainian city of Donetsk, pro-Russian thugs holding government buildings refuse to surrender them to Ukrainian authorities threatening an international incident.  Kiev needs to send in some worse thugs than the Russian scum holding them and evict them right into a prison cell.  This is what happens when an American president- Bill Clinton- promised the Ukrainians that ‘America would come to their defense if they would only surrender their nuclear weapons.’  This mess occurred shortly after the fall of the Soviet Union.
  59. 2015 Saturday: In Nigeria, 17 people die from a mystery disease within 24 hours of the onset of symptoms.  Tests show that the disease is not viral; however, currently, there is no identification.  Elsewhere, the Rock-and-Roll Hall of Fame inducts Ringo Starr[vi] (finally!), the Paul Butterfield Blues Band[vii] (finally!), Joan Jett and the Blackhearts[viii] (finally!), Stevie Ray Vaughn and Double Trouble[ix] (guy’s been dead quite a while), Green Day[x], Bill Withers[xi], Lou Reed[xii] (finally), and the Five Royals.
  60. 2016 Monday: U.S. Secretary of Defense Ash Carter arrives in Baghdad and informs his counterparts that in an effort to defeat ISIS, the U.S. will be sending more troops to help Iraqi troops repel the murderous thugs.  Elsewhere, in the eastern end of the Mediterranean Sea, a migrant boat off the coast of Egypt, overloaded with Somali immigrants bound for Italy capsizes and at least 400 of the travelers drown.
  61. 2017 Tuesday: After a racist, anti-white gunman goes on a shooting rampage in downtown Fresno, California, law enforcement catches up with the murderous POS charging him with three murders as well as one or two others he committed several days prior to these crimes.   SHOOT him.   Meanwhile, President Trump visits Kenosha, Wisconsin, and signs an executive order with which to strengthen U.S. workers as opposed to foreign workers as well as to examine the number of H-1B visa handed out by the U.S. every year so BIG TECH can avoid hiring American workers in place of low-cost foreign workers. 
  62. 2018 Wednesday: In Managua, Nicaragua, as protesters march protesting cuts to social programs by the Sandinista government, pro-government gangs take to the streets and begin beating the living bejezzus out of them.  Such is the ‘communist way.’   Elsewhere as more information arises from Israeli air strikes into neighboring Syria appears, we learn that their targets were Iranian missile systems with which to target Israeli aircraft.  Well, the Iranians will have to start over…
  63. 2019 Thursday: Attorney General William “Bill” Barr releases a redacted version of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s findings on whether then candidate Donald J. Trump conspired with the Russkies to win the 2016 Presidential Election.  The findings found NO trace of any collusion between Vladimir Putin and candidate Trump but also did not entirely clear President Trump of other ‘alleged’ or ‘suspected wrongdoings.’  Foaming-at-the-mouth Democrats were screaming, “See!  See!  The report did not say Trump didn’t collude; no, it only said no evidence could be uncovered.’  Ah, gee whiz, and so it goes…
  64. 2020 Saturday:  The COVID-19 Virus Crisis continues taking lives and ruining economies around the globe.  Many speculate that the Chinese- allied with the Democrats- set this debacle upon the world.  Rather funny how it sprang up in the death throes of impeachment.  Thank you, communist China, thank you, Democratic Party.  Around the globe, we have 2,310,572 confirmed cases of this horrible disease, 158,691 confirmed deaths, and 590,682 confirmed recoveries. 
    The United States claims 739,988 confirmed cases what with 38,928 confirmed fatalities but 66,357 confirmed recoveries.  Yet Democratic governors such as Gretchen Whitmer and the KKK governor of Virginia, continue locking down their states as though they are communists themselves.  One can only wonder why?  Meanwhile, our ‘friends,’ the People’s Republic of China claim 88,302 confirmed cases, 4,632 confirmed deaths, and 82,589 confirmed recoveries.
  65. 2020 Saturday: In Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the former 72nd U.S. Treasury Secretary Paul H. O’Neill died at age 84.  A Republican, he served under President George W. Bush from January 20, 2001, to December 31, 2002.

  67. 2021 Sunday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 247,359 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.   In other COVID-19 news, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says it’s ‘unlikely that the J & J Chi-Vi vaccine will be sidelined for good.’  We aren’t going to take that crap so you may as well send it to the Chi-Coms, the Iranians, or some other crap-hole country.  Oh, Dr. Fauci also says ‘guns are a health issues.’  No kidding- get shot by one and you have a problem but then again, so are knives and sledgehammers if misused.
  68. 2021 Sunday B: COVID-19 STATISTICS in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,716,603 confirmed cases, 60,949 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,168,901 confirmed cases, 34,439 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,606 confirmed cases, 474 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 387,312 confirmed cases, 5,427 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Nevada, the home of fraudulent 2020 Election results: they have 310,239 confirmed cases, 5,365 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[xiv] 
  69. 2021 Sunday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 837,047 confirmed cases, 6,338 confirmed deaths, and 828,235 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one non-country- the West Bank, long a part of Israel: 279,273 cases of the virus, 2,983 confirmed deaths and 245,293 confirmed recoveries.[xv]  
  70. 2021 Sunday D: U.S. DOLLAR CONVERSIONS– Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.52 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.92.     In Haitian Gourde, one greenback equals 81.80 and in Honduran Lempira, a buck equals 23.98.[xvi]
  71. 2021 Sunday E: U.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- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.968 per gallon, $2.826 in Florida, $3.745 in Hawaii, and $3.371 in Washington state.[xvii]    Let’s look at one other location- Kansas: $2.676.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,186,291,746,801 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]
  72. 2021 Sunday F: GUNS-GUNS-GUNS– in the era of the FALSE PRESIDENT- Joe Biden- gun crimes continue unabated what a shooting at a bar in Kenosha, Wisconsin, early this morning that killed three and injured another three.  By midday, law enforcement had located a person of interest in this mass shooting.  Meanwhile, another mass shooting occurred in an Austin, Texas, apartment complex when an unknown shooter shot and killed three people and then vanished into thin air.  Police are going door to door searching for the scumbag involved in this crime.  Already, it would appear that more mass shootings have occurred under the Biden regime than in the entire Trump presidency.  Are people this upset with a phony president in the White House?  Are they upset over the phony president’s plans to strip them of their guns that they are pouring out of the woodwork like the cockroaches they are taking care of business before they are forced to mete out justice and/or punishment via baseball bats and meat cleavers?  What the hell is going on?[xix] 
  73. 2021 Sunday G: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE– Joe Biden plans to release 400 illegal alien families with their brats into the interior of the country per day by June 2021.  We are not going to provide care for this human refuse, Joe.  Let ‘em die in the streets.  Next, a Texas illegal alien holding pen for young girls gets shut down after a volunteer work dies under mysterious circumstances.   Meanwhile, a mumbling, stumbling phony president, Joe Biden, mutters that he has no numbers regarding refugees he is going to resettle in the United States but is looking at 60,000 this year and another 100,000 per year thereafter.  Thank you, f**king Joe.
  74. 2021 Sunday H: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS I– Prime Minister Scott Morrison and the Australian government says they are in no hurry to reopen their borders that have been closed thanks to COVID-19.  Next, the Czech Republic expels Russian foreign embassy staff over link to alleged 2014 sabotage carried out by the Russkies that blew up a Czech ammo dump.  Meanwhile, we learn that the Chi-Coms are ecstatic over the weakness displayed by both senile Joe Biden and a feeble Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga.  Taiwan, we’re coming for you.   Moving on, the GOP is demanding a stronger show of force as the Russian buildup along the Ukrainian border continues.  Invasion coming here soon, too.  We expect the Chi-Coms, the Russians, the Iranians, and others are going to move simultaneously, and Joe Biden will be left playing pocket pool on the sidelines.  Speaking of Joe Biden’s impotency, former DNI John Ratcliffe says ‘America’s adversaries are taking advantage of Joe Biden’s extremely evident weakness.’ 
  75. 2021 Sunday I:  FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS II– President Donald J. Trump says, ‘it’s a positive and wonderful thing to be getting out of Afghanistan but is critical of the timeline of the withdrawal.’  He negotiated the U.S. departure by May 1, 2021, and Joe Biden has extended it to September 11, 2001.  Here is what we think: we think it’s a ploy by the Bidenistas to cause the Taliban to begin launching major attacks on U.S. positions and personnel so the United States can turn around and say, “Oh, woe, we have to remain in the s***hole country for another 4-8 years so we can continue profiting from the death and destruction.”  There is NO reason to remain in Afghanistan, folks.   Elsewhere, the Mossad announces that ‘yes, indeed, the Biden regime is working at getting back into the FAILED Iran nuclear program.’  Thanks for telling us this but we already knew this POS Joe Biden has no original ideas of his own.  Speaking of the Iranian fecal matter, they fired a barrage of rockets into a base utilized by U.S. contractors in Iraq.  Let’s light Tehran up!  Kill ‘em all!
  76. 2021 Sunday J: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS III– Joe Biden’s National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan claims that his boss, the incredibly fuddled Joe Biden is taking a ‘tough stance’ on Vladimir Putin’s Russia over its ongoing mistreatment of Putin critic Alexei Navalny.  Why Navalny returned to Russia is beyond us but hey, the Russians are doing horrible crap to the imprisoned anti-Putin, which is not right, but Joe Biden is going to do NOTHING about anything.   Elsewhere, Joe Biden’s climate czar, the incredibly phony John F. “Lurch” Kerry is ignoring South Korea’s complaints about Japan’s releasing of toxic water from its shuttered Fukushima nuclear power plant into the ocean. 
  77. 2021 Sunday K: POLITICAL NEWS I– Former President Donald J. Trump ambassador to Denmark Carla Sands is considering a run for Senator Pat Toomey’s seat in Pennsylvania.   Next, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says that Joe Biden unlike President Franklin Delano Roosevelt is in an advantageous position to pack the U.S. Supreme Court.   Many in the GOP are confident that expanding the U.S. Supreme Court will be detrimental to the Democrats in 2022 and again in 2024.  Big flipping deal, the damage will be done and with tens of millions new illegal alien voters, it won’t matter.  Why are you people so obstinately stupid?   Speaking of other stupidity, new SEC Chairman Gary Gensler plans to increase rules and regulations (such as the ones President Donald J. Trump eradicated) so he can help make Joe Biden’s Green New Deal a reality.  Wow.  Going to be great.
  78. 2021 Sunday L: POLITICAL NEWS II– The Grand Old Party in the Peach State has censured not only Governor Brian Kemp, RINO, and others among statewide leadership over their failure to adequately address President Donald J. Trump’s concerns over election fraud.  Speaking of Governor Kemp, former Democrat-turned-Republican Vernon Jones announced yesterday that he is going to primary Gov. Kemp.  Poor Governor Kemp, he should have stood by President Trump as should have Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, another RINO POS.  We hope they lose in next year’s primaries.   Meanwhile, Congressman Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, criticizes befuddled old Joe Biden’s work schedule, says that he is ‘not working hard enough like a purported U.S. president.’  Elsewhere, we learn today that the National Security Agency- the NSA- is targeting U.S. Navy officers who are pro-Trump instead of targeting foreign enemies abroad.  Wow.  How sad.  Are we beginning to see the beginning of America’s first Soviet-style purge of military officers?  Wow.   Finally, at a Lincoln Day fundraiser in Florida, President Donald J. Trump received a thunderous standing ovation from hundreds of assembled guests.  “Miss him yet?”  You better believe we all do.
  79. 2021 Sunday M: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– Elon Musk beats out Jeff Bezos and Amazon getting a $3 billion NASA contract with which to return Americans to the moon. Moving on, a Rasmussen poll says that 54-percent of likely American voters disapprove of what the Democrat-controlled Congress is doing.  We bet it’s way higher than that.   Another poll shows that since the Democrats stole the 2020 Presidential Election, CNN’s ratings have plummeted by 54-percent.  Equally hateful MSNBC also has seen severe losses in viewership.  Next, an Antifa watchdog group has released the mugshots of all the Black Lives Matter and Antifa thugs and punks arrested in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, for the world to see.  Most of them are spoiled white punks which leads us to reiterate what we have said before: when two generations of young people are spared the belt across their bare asses, this is what you end up with- punks.   Speaking of Brooklyn Center, riots continue in that city as well as in other cities across the nation as leftist scumbags prepare for the verdict in the murder trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin.   Finally, Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, says the lawsuit the state has on Joe Biden will force the feeble old fool to ‘enforce the law’ instead of avoiding it.
  80. 2022 Monday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole– 505,019,209 confirmed cases, +211,451, 6,224,359 confirmed deaths, +1,092 and 456,444,263 confirmed recoveries, +441,770.

[i] This is the TRUE government of China, Nationalist China which is FREE China.  Although these people inhabit Taiwan, the former island of Formosa, they are the true owners of mainland China, too, and the sooner they reclaim their birthright, the sooner the world will heal.

[ii] We look forward to sharing the music of this influential British band within the next five years.  Colosseum was overlooked when we shared the group of interconnected bands in which, Humble Pie, was a part.  Sorry for the oversight.

[iii] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.

[iv] We promoted the music of the famed San Francisco, California, rock band, Moby Grape, on Monday, 09-April-2012 through Monday, 23-April-2012.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.

[v] As always, our main source is “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, Da Capo Press, 2004.

[vi] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.

[vii] We hope to share the music of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band as well as Al Kooper sometime in the next 10-15 years.  We hope you will remain with us as loyal readers.

[viii] Not sure when we will begin celebrating the music of Joan Jett and the Blackhearts but when we do…you will be among the first to know.

[ix] As to when we will celebrate the life, times, and music of the late great Stevie Ray Vaughn and Double Trouble, we haven’t a clue so stay alert for the day we finally do.

[x] We doubt we will ever do the music of Green Day.

[xi] We hope to celebrate the music of Bill Withers one day.  Please stay alert for when that day arrives.  You will be glad you did.

[xii] We began promoting the music of the Velvet Underground starting on Tuesday, 18-March-2014 through Wednesday, 09-April-2014.  At the time we promoted this famous New York City rock band, we failed to share the music of the man himself, Lou Reed.  We hope to rectify that mistake when we return to promoting American bands again.  Thank you for your patience.

18. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, JANUARY 18, 2022

53. 2017 Wednesday: NASA and NOAA announce that 2016 was the hottest year on record, surpassing 2015 which surpassed 2014. Perhaps things are heating up? Yet, the United States, Canada, and Europe are NOT the problem: the problem is China, India, Russia, the Third World and unless they can get on board with the rest of the civilized nations, nothing is ever going to change. Period.

  53. 2017 Wednesday: NASA and NOAA announce that 2016 was the hottest year on record, surpassing 2015 which surpassed 2014.  Perhaps things are heating up?  Yet, the United States, Canada, and Europe are NOT the problem:  the problem is China, India, Russia, the Third World and unless they can on board with the rest of the civilized nations, nothing is ever going to change.  Period.  Elsewhere, in the fight to free Iraq from the ISIS garbage infesting it, Baghdad says its troops have captured the eastern portion of the city of Mosul.  Casualties are high, fighting bloody, but with U.S. help, Iraq is freeing its people from the human slime.

  58. 2021 Monday: We learn this morning that the FBI is vetting National Guard troops protecting federal buildings as well as securing Wednesday’s inauguration for ‘extremists’ among them.  Supporters of President-elect Joseph R. Biden contend that most National Guard soldiers are white and that 80-percent or more may have voted for President Trump.  Some speculate they should be given live ammo so as to hinder their ability to launch a coup.  This is crazy, the Dems are crazy and anyone who believes dreck such as this should be banned from normal society.  IF anyone is launching a coup, it’s the Democratic (-Socialist) Party.  Meanwhile, David Horowitz tells Newsmax TV that ‘Democrats will persecute Christians as they seek to advance a fascist state.’  Elsewhere, a New Mexico state official who was on hand for the Capitol Hill riots of January 06, 2021, the ones engineered by House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, and who vowed to return to Washington, D.C., and did return underwent arrest today.

  62. 2021 Monday D: The People’s Republic of China- COMMUNIST China- announces it’s going to sanction U.S. officials over their ‘interference’ in Taiwan which they claim are internal matters of the Chi-Coms.  NO- Taiwan is the FREE and REAL China whereas mainland China is a fraudulent, counterfeit entity in need of liberation.  Elsewhere, as state capitals around the country geared up for what was expected to be a VIOLENT weekend, it turned out to be a nonevent as no one showed up or committed violent acts.  Ooops.  Meanwhile, some anonymous schmuck donated $40 million which will fund 50 civil rights lawyers to do whatever it is they are going to do.  Finally, Parler is back online but their app is not available in the App Store.   Finally, following yesterday’s loss by the New Orleans Saints, QB Drew Brees has said nothing about his plans for the future although we learn he already has inked a deal with CBS Sports.   
  63. 2021 Monday E: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 95,475,781 confirmed cases, +520,002, 2,038,325, confirmed deaths, +9,293, and 52,575,519 confirmed recoveries, +334,621.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 24,117,759 confirmed cases, up 106,665 from yesterday’s reporting, 401,256 confirmed deaths, UP 1,225, and 10,467,918 confirmed recoveries, UP 44,674.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Dave Pegg dug into the archives once again produced a gem of a Fairport Convention album from the archives- “Who Knows?  The Woodworm Archives Volume 1” (April 18, 2007).  The show comes from 1975 and features the lineup of (1) Dave Swarbrick (vocals, fiddles, mandolins, guitars, and violas) (2) Trevor Lucas (acoustic guitars and vocals) (3) Jerry Donahue (lead guitar and backing vocals) (4) Dave Pegg (vocals, basses, guitars), (5) Dave Mattacks (drums, percussion, and piano), (6) Sandy Denny (guitars, vocals, pianos), and Bruce Rowland (drums).  This is an enjoyable addition to the group’s ongoing catalog and is a very ‘Sandy Denny’ album as the veteran vocalist had returned to the fold and following the release of “Rising for the Moon,” went out on the road for 18 flipping months.  We hope you will visit your favorite haunt for the absolute best in British folk-rock music, give it a good listen, and then add it to your collection.  You most definitely will be glad you did- undoubtedly.  Enjoy.

  59. 2010 Friday: The United Kingdom gives all prisoners serving sentences of less than four years the right to vote.   Meanwhile, in Tunisia, a disgruntled citizen- Mohamed Bouazizi sets himself on fire.  This would be the catalyst to launch the Tunisian Revolution which in turn would fire up the Arab Spring across the Middle East.

  63. 2014 Wednesday: The Obama administration announces it is going to end the embargo on communist Cuba (thanks, Obama).  The announcement appeared after the U.S. swapped three Cuban prisoners for American aid worker Alan Gross and an unnamed American spy.  Elsewhere, the death toll in West Africa has risen to more than 7,000 as Ebola continues claiming lives.  Reports blast the sluggish response by the Chi-Com-controlled World Health Organization.

  65. 2016 Saturday: A jihadist bombing on a bus carrying off-duty Turkish troops in Kayseri Province claims the lives of at least 13 and injures another 56 or so.  The government claims the “Kurds did it” when everyone knows ISIS is alive and well in their corrupt country.
  66. 2017 Sunday: Senator-elect Doug Jones, D-AL, says the “Old Alabama” lost to the “New Alabama,” meaning the dimwit believes the state is going to go BLUE.  He would lose his seat in November 2020 to Republican Tommy Tuberville. 
  67. 2018 Monday: A new report arises noting the Russian propaganda efforts to sway media and election on social media are much more intense than previously thought, especially their attempts at swaying the views of African Americans.  Everyone knows the Russians are scum and continue doing this just as other nations do- including the U.S.  It is what it is.   Meanwhile, U.S. Prime Minister Theresa May is facing challenges to her leadership as Brexit continues moving at a snail’s pace.   Elsewhere, CBS News says terminated producer Les Moonves, caught up in #MeToo charges, won’t receive his $120 million payout as he leaves the network.  Sucks to be him…
  68. 2019 Tuesday: The run-up to the impeachment vote of President Donald J. Trump continues as Congressman Jaime Raskin, D-MD, sitting in for House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-NY, and ranking member, Congressman Doug Collins, R-SC, appear before the House Rules Committee to hammer out the terms under which the impeachment trial will occur in the U.S. Senate.  Meanwhile, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, blasts Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY, over his refusal to indulge the Democrat’s desire to call more witnesses noting that the Constitution says nothing about the Senate doing the work of the House.  The Senate serves as the jury in impeachment proceedings and nothing more.  F**k off, Chuck.
  69. 2020 Thursday: The U.S. government confirms the recent hacking of various departments.  Most believe it’s either Russia or communist China, possibly Iran.  Meanwhile, the House GOP urge President Donald J. Trump to veto the $1.4 trillion spending bill soon to come before him for his signature.  Elsewhere, director of national intelligence John Ratcliffe says the report on voter and election fraud will not be ready tomorrow as he once promised.  We will await its debut.

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

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

  81. 2020 Thursday L: Folks, we encourage everyone to remain vigilant to discover what the Chi-Coms, the Russians, the Iranians, the Venezuelans, Cubans, North Koreans, and the lackeys in the U.S., the Democrats are up to today…speaking of these scurrilous skunks, ‘President-elect pro-China Joe’ Biden informs the world that ‘he is not concerned with son Hunter’s increasing legal troubles’ regarding tax fraud, corruption, and dealing with hostile foreign powers.  Lock him up and throw away the key.   Regarding Hunter, President Trump says he has ‘nothing to do’ with any federal prosecution of “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s son. 
  82. 2021 Friday: Stick around…

269. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 2021

Word of advice to Judge Barrett: when the sniveling Democrats begin attacking you on ‘DOGMA,’ make sure you point out that the ‘dogma’ of Jesus Christ is far better than the ‘dogma’ of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, Mao Zedong, Xi Jinping, Kim Jong Un, Josef Stalin, Fidel and Raul Castro, Hugo Chavez, and Nicolas Maduro. That ‘dogma’ is not good but the dogma of Jesus Christ, the Holy Mother, Holy Joseph, and the rest of the Catholic Church very much is.

  50. 2016 Tuesday:  The United States and communist China formally commit to the Paris Climate Accord which will devastate the U.S. economy while continuing to build that of the nation’s second largest economy.  Not good.  At the same time, the Obama administration does its best to reassure Asian nations that the U.S. will indeed ratify the Trans-Pacific Partnership, aka the TPP, that will also destroy American jobs.  Thank you, President Obama.
  51. 2017 Wednesday: Hurricane Irma roars into the Caribbean region hammering the British Virgin Islands, St. Maarten, and Barbuda.  The devastation is horrific and, in some locations, entire towns and buildings are swept away or blown down.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by Martin Barre- “Live in NYC”- came out on October 15, 2019.  The famed guitarist and one of the longest-serving members of Jethro Tull went out and conducted a musical celebration of his half century in the music industry.  He performed his tunes as well as those of Jethro Tull and what a show it was.  The band features Mr. Barre (guitars, mandolins, banjos, flutes, and keyboards), Dan Crisp (guitars and vocals), George Lindsey and David Schoepke (drums and percussion), and Alan Thompson (bass, vocals).  Say what you will about the old timers, compared to modern-day garbage, this man lights the stage on fire.  We hope that everyone will go to their favorite site for the absolute best in rock and roll music and pick it up.  You will be glad you did.

ENDNOTES:


[i] We promoted the music of this venerable British rock star as part of a series of interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This included the Small Faces, Faces, Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood, Jeff Beck, Steve Marriott, Humble Pie, and other interconnected parts.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[ii] See previous footnote.

[iii] We began offering the musi of Pink Floyd beginning on Monday, 20-April-2020 through Sunday, 12-July-2020.  This included not only the band’s music but also that of all five members- Syd Barrett, Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Rick Wright, and Nicky Mason.

[iv] We look forward to sharing the music of this influential British band within the next five years.  Colosseum was overlooked when we shared the group of interconnected bands in which, Humble Pie, was a part.  Sorry for the oversight.

[v] We promoted the music of the world-famous Creedence Clearwater Revival beginning on Saturday, 16-November-2013 through Saturday, 07-December-2013.  Being the inattentive morons that we were back then, we neglected to promote the music of the band’s individual members.  We hope to do this one day so folks, keep vigilant for the day when we do.

[vi] We shared the music of the Rolling Stones (and the group’s individual members) beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members solo projects.

[vii] We presented the music of the Kinks, as well as of Ray and Dave Davies, beginning on Monday, 22-December-2014 through Sunday, 15-March-2015.  We hope you will check out the music of this original British invasion band as they are as relevant today as they were more than 50 years ago.  Sure, beats the hell out of Maroon Five.

[viii] 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.

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

Politicians such as Nancy Pelosi believe they are untouchable; well, WHY can’t we join in class action lawsuits and sue the living hell out of every BLUE State- or- City political hack for DERELICTION OF DUTY?

Various groups are now fighting for supremacy in there, how soon before we have outright violence, public whippings, and even executions?  Meanwhile, the Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan, a committed Marxist, says ‘it’s akin to the summer of love.’  Yeah, right. It is high time for the U.S. government to put both Beijing and their Democratic Party lackeys on notice that we are not going to put up with this crap.  Enough is flipping enough!  Sadly, statues across the country have been vandalized, torn down, and/or destroyed.  Not good.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Jethro Tull returned on April 10, 1978 with the second album of a coming trio of English folk rock albums- “Heavy Horses.”  Quintessentially British from start to finish, Jethro Tull returned to what they began as- blues and acoustic.  The band continued as six members- Ian Anderson (vocals, flutes, guitars, keyboards), Martin Barre (guitars), John Glascock (bass), John Evan (keyboards), Barriemore Barlow (drums), and Dee Palmer (keyboards and synthesizers).  Critics sang the album’s praises which is always peculiar as it seems when critics get their teeth dug in, they hate to pull them out.  We hope you will seek this album out and make it a part of your listening day- we suspect you will like it

  46. 2004 Sunday: Sworn in yesterday, Socialist Party Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero of Spain says that in accordance with the will of the Spanish people, all Spanish troops serving in Iraq should be brought home as soon as it is humanly possible.   Elsewhere, following the death of its leader Abdel Aziz Ali Abdul Majid al-Rantisi, killed in an Israeli missile strike the day before selects a new leader but does not take to the streets to announce who the lucky thug is.  They know the Israelis might light up this POS, too. 
  47. 2005 Monday: In the Papal Conclave of 2005, senior cardinals signal no new pope has been chosen by sending up black smoke, the traditional method of signaling no decision.  When white smoke goes up, they have made their choice and will inform the world.  We will await the decision.
  48. 2006 Tuesday: Since becoming president in 2003, Chi-Com President Hu Jintao arrives in Washington state, his first official visit to the United States.  Meanwhile, Russian gas company Gazprom and customer European Union are having issues.  The head of Gazprom told the EU leadership NOT to politicize the delivery of cheap energy for the rest of Europe.
  49. 2007 Wednesday: People across the United States are protesting gun crimes what with the massacre at Virginia Tech earlier in the week.  Police announce their suspect is a Korean student named 23-year-old Cho Seung-Hui as the mass murderer.  The POS used two handguns to kill more people in 10 minutes than ever before.  Wow. 
  50. 2008 Friday: Ahead of trade talks between the United States and South Korea, the latter agrees to open its markets to U.S. beef from the former.  (Note- we find it amazing that we have all these allies who won’t take our goods.  What’s up with that?)

  53. 2011 Monday: Things continue getting out of hand in Syria.  In the city of Homs, anti-government protesters are angrier than ever after the Syrian military opened fire on people protesting the Bashar al-Assad regime.  A military officer who refused to fire on protesters undergoes execution himself.   Anti-Bashar al-Assad protesters are getting whacked all over the country.
  54. 2012 Wednesday: The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission together complete rules to limit which firms are required to register with either or both agencies as ‘swap dealers.’  Elsewhere, the wimpified U.S. military is condemning photos of U.S. servicemen posing with the corpses of mangled suicide bombers.  At least two such incidents occurred.  (Note- they should have seen photos from the Vietnam War.  It was what it was).
  55. 2013 Thursday: Kepler-62e and Kepler-62f, two planets resembling planet Earth are discovered revolving around the star Kepler-62 in the habitable zone, an area around the stars whose atmospheric pressure can support liquid water at the surface.   Elsewhere, President Barack Obama visits the city of Boston.  Meanwhile, as a condition of talking to the Obama administration, North Korea demands that all UN-imposed sanctions on their country be lifted or screw off.
  56. 2014 Friday: About 80 miles northwest of the resort town of Acapulco, Mexico, a 7.2-magnitude earthquake hits but the authorities report only minimal damage.  Elsewhere, in the Ukrainian city of Donetsk, pro-Russian thugs holding government buildings refuse to surrender them to Ukrainian authorities threatening an international incident.  Kiev needs to send in some worse thugs than the Russian scum holding them and evict them right into a prison cell.  This is what happens when an American president- Bill Clinton- promised the Ukrainians that ‘America would come to their defense if they would only surrender their nuclear weapons.’  This mess occurred shortly after the fall of the Soviet Union.
  57. 2015 Saturday: In Nigeria, 17 people die from a mystery disease within 24 hours of the onset of symptoms.  Tests show that the disease is not viral; however, currently, there is no identification.  Elsewhere, the Rock-and-Roll Hall of Fame inducts Ringo Starr[vi] (finally!), the Paul Butterfield Blues Band[vii] (finally!), Joan Jett and the Blackhearts[viii] (finally!), Stevie Ray Vaughn and Double Trouble[ix] (guy’s been dead quite a while), Green Day[x], Bill Withers[xi], Lou Reed[xii] (finally), and the Five Royals.
  58. 2016 Monday: U.S. Secretary of Defense Ash Carter arrives in Baghdad and informs his counterparts that in an effort to defeat ISIS, the U.S. will be sending more troops to help Iraqi troops repel the murderous thugs.  Elsewhere, in the eastern end of the Mediterranean Sea, a migrant boat off the coast of Egypt, overloaded with Somali immigrants bound for Italy capsizes and at least 400 of the travelers drown.
  59. 2017 Tuesday: After a racist, anti-white gunman goes on a shooting rampage in downtown Fresno, California, law enforcement catches up with the murderous POS charging him with three murders as well as one or two others he committed several days prior to these crimes.   SHOOT him.   Meanwhile, President Trump visits Kenosha, Wisconsin, and signs an executive order with which to strengthen U.S. workers as opposed to foreign workers as well as to examine the number of H-1B visa handed out by the U.S. every year so BIG TECH can avoid hiring American workers in place of low cost foreign workers. 
  60. 2018 Wednesday: In Managua, Nicaragua, as protesters march protesting cuts to social programs by the Sandinista government, pro-government gangs take to the streets and begin beating the living bejezzus out of them.  Such is the ‘communist way.’   Elsewhere as more information arises from Israeli air strikes into neighboring Syria appears, we learn that their targets were Iranian missile systems with which to target Israeli aircraft.  Well, the Iranians will have to start over…
  61. 2019 Thursday: Attorney General William “Bill” Barr releases a redacted version of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s findings on whether then candidate Donald J. Trump conspired with the Russkies to win the 2016 Presidential Election.  The findings found NO trace of any collusion between Vladimir Putin and candidate Trump but also did not entirely clear President Trump of other ‘alleged’ or ‘suspected wrongdoings.’  Foaming-at-the-mouth Democrats were screaming, “See!  See!  The report did not say Trump didn’t collude; no, it only said no evidence could be uncovered.’  Ah, gee whiz, and so it goes…
  62. 2020 Saturday:  The COVID-19 Virus Crisis continues taking lives and ruining economies around the globe.  Many speculate that the Chinese- allied with the Democrats- set this debacle upon the world.  Rather funny how it sprang up in the death throes of impeachment.  Thank you, communist China, thank you, Democratic Party.  Around the globe, we have 2,310,572 confirmed cases of this horrible disease, 158,691 confirmed deaths, and 590,682 confirmed recoveries. 
    The United States claims 739,988 confirmed cases what with 38,928 confirmed fatalities but 66,357 confirmed recoveries.  Yet Democratic governors such as Gretchen Whitmer and the KKK governor of Virginia, continue locking down their states as though they are communists themselves.  One can only wonder why?  Meanwhile, our ‘friends,’ the People’s Republic of China claim 88,302 confirmed cases, 4,632 confirmed deaths, and 82,589 confirmed recoveries   
  63. 2021 Sunday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 141,015,440 confirmed cases, +932,847, 3,014,805  confirmed deaths, +12,651, and 80,500,382 confirmed recoveries, +659,474.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,867,364 confirmed cases, UP 102,620 from yesterday’s reporting, 572,627 confirmed deaths, UP 1,163, and 119,031,290 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[xiii] 
  64. 2021 Sunday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 247,359 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.   In other COVID-19 news, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says it’s ‘unlikely that the J & J Chi-Vi vaccine will be sidelined for good.’  We aren’t going to take that crap so you may as well send it to the Chi-Coms, the Iranians, or some other crap-hole country.  Oh, Dr. Fauci also says ‘guns are a health issues.’  No kidding- get shot by one and you have a problem but then again, so are knives and sledgehammers if misused.
  65. 2021 Sunday B: COVID-19 STATISTICS in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,716,603 confirmed cases, 60,949 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,168,901 confirmed cases, 34,439 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,606 confirmed cases, 474 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 387,312 confirmed cases, 5,427 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Nevada, the home of fraudulent 2020 Election results: they have 310,239 confirmed cases, 5,365 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[xiv] 
  66. 2021 Sunday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 837,047 confirmed cases, 6,338 confirmed deaths, and 828,235 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one non-country- the West Bank, long a part of Israel: 279,273 cases of the virus, 2,983 confirmed deaths and 245,293 confirmed recoveries.[xv]  
  67. 2021 Sunday D: U.S. DOLLAR CONVERSIONS- Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.52 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.92.     In Haitian Gourde, one greenback equals 81.80 and in Honduran Lempira, a buck equals 23.98.[xvi]
  68. 2021 Sunday E: U.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- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.968 per gallon, $2.826 in Florida, $3.745 in Hawaii, and $3.371 in Washington state.[xvii]    Let’s look at one other location- Kansas: $2.676.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,186,291,746,801 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]
  69. 2021 Sunday F: GUNS-GUNS-GUNS- in the era of the FALSE PRESIDENT- Joe Biden- gun crimes continue unabated what a shooting at a bar in Kenosha, Wisconsin, early this morning that killed three and injured another three.  By midday, law enforcement had located a person of interest in this mass shooting.  Meanwhile, another mass shooting occurred in an Austin, Texas, apartment complex when an unknown shooter shot and killed three people and then vanished into thin air.  Police are going door to door searching for the scumbag involved in this crime.  Already, it would appear that more mass shootings have occurred under the Biden regime than in the entire Trump presidency.  Are people this upset with a phony president in the White House?  Are they upset over the phony president’s plans to strip them of their guns that they are pouring out of the woodwork like the cockroaches they are taking care of business before they are forced to mete out justice and/or punishment via baseball bats and meat cleavers?  What the hell is going on?[xix] 
  70. 2021 Sunday G: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE- Joe Biden plans to release 400 illegal alien families with their brats into the interior of the country per day by June 2021.  We are not going to provide care for this human refuse, Joe.  Let ‘em die in the streets.  Next, a Texas illegal alien holding pen for young girls gets shut down after a volunteer work dies under mysterious circumstances.   Meanwhile, a mumbling, stumbling phony president, Joe Biden, mutters that he has no numbers regarding refugees he is going to resettle in the United States but is looking at 60,000 this year and another 100,000 per year thereafter.  Thank you, f**king Joe.
  71. 2021 Sunday H: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS I- Prime Minister Scott Morrison and the Australian government says they are in no hurry to reopen their borders that have been closed thanks to COVID-19.  Next, the Czech Republic expels Russian foreign embassy staff over link to alleged 2014 sabotage carried out by the Russkies that blew up a Czech ammo dump.  Meanwhile, we learn that the Chi-Coms are ecstatic over the weakness displayed by both senile Joe Biden and a feeble Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga.  Taiwan, we’re coming for you.   Moving on, the GOP is demanding a stronger show of force as the Russian buildup along the Ukrainian border continues.  Invasion coming here soon, too.  We expect the Chi-Coms, the Russians, the Iranians, and others are going to move simultaneously and Joe Biden will be left playing pocket pool on the sidelines.  Speaking of Joe Biden’s impotency, former DNI John Ratcliffe says ‘America’s adversaries are taking advantage of Joe Biden’s extremely evident weakness.’ 
  72. 2021 Sunday I:  FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS II- President Donald J. Trump says, ‘it’s a positive and wonderful thing to be getting out of Afghanistan but is critical of the timeline of the withdrawal.’  He negotiated the U.S. departure by May 1, 2021 and Joe Biden has extended it to September 11, 2001.  Here is what we think: we think it’s a ploy by the Bidenistas to cause the Taliban to begin launching major attacks on U.S. positions and personnel so the United States can turn around and say, “Oh, woe, we have to remain in the s***hole country for another 4-8 years so we can continue profiting from the death and destruction.”  There is NO reason to remain in Afghanistan, folks.   Elsewhere, the Mossad announces that ‘yes, indeed, the Biden regime is working at getting back into the FAILED Iran nuclear program.’  Thanks for telling us this but we already knew this POS Joe Biden has no original ideas of his own.  Speaking of the Iranian fecal matter, they fired a barrage of rockets into a base utilized by U.S. contractors in Iraq.  Let’s light Tehran up!  Kill ‘em all!
  73. 2021 Sunday J: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS III- Joe Biden’s National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan claims that his boss, the incredibly fuddled Joe Biden is taking a ‘tough stance’ on Vladimir Putin’s Russia over its ongoing mistreatment of Putin critic Alexei Navalny.  Why Navalny returned to Russia is beyond us but hey, the Russians are doing horrible crap to the imprisoned anti-Putin which is not right but Joe Biden is going to do NOTHING about anything.   Elsewhere, Joe Biden’s climate czar, the incredibly phony John F. “Lurch” Kerry is ignoring South Korea’s complaints about Japan’s releasing of toxic water from its shuttered Fukushima nuclear power plant into the ocean. 
  74. 2021 Sunday K: POLITICAL NEWS I- Former President Donald J. Trump ambassador to Denmark Carla Sands is considering a run for Senator Pat Toomey’s seat in Pennsylvania.   Next, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says that Joe Biden unlike President Franklin Delano Roosevelt is in a good position to pack the U.S. Supreme Court.   Many in the GOP are confident that expanding the U.S. Supreme Court will be detrimental to the Democrats in 2022 and again in 2024.  Big flipping deal, the damage will be done and with tens of millions new illegal alien voters, it won’t matter.  Why are you people so obstinately stupid?   Speaking of other stupidity, new SEC Chairman Gary Gensler plans to increase rules and regulations (such as the ones President Donald J. Trump eradicated) so he can help make Joe Biden’s Green New Deal a reality.  Wow.  Going to be great.
  75. 2021 Sunday L: POLITICAL NEWS II- The Grand Old Party in the Peach State has censured not only Governor Brian Kemp, RINO, and others among statewide leadership over their failure to adequately address President Donald J. Trump’s concerns over election fraud.  Speaking of Governor Kemp, former Democrat-turned-Republican Vernon Jones announced yesterday that he is going to primary Gov. Kemp.  Poor Governor Kemp, he should have stood by President Trump as should have Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, another RINO POS.  We hope they lose in next year’s primaries.   Meanwhile, Congressman Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, criticizes befuddled old Joe Biden’s work schedule, says that he is ‘not working hard enough like a purported U.S. president.’  Elsewhere, we learn today that the National Security Agency- the NSA- is targeting U.S. Navy officers who are pro-Trump instead of targeting foreign enemies abroad.  Wow.  How sad.  Are we beginning to see the beginning of America’s first Soviet-style purge of military officers?  Wow.   Finally, at a Lincoln Day fundraiser in Florida, President Donald J. Trump received a thunderous standing ovation from hundreds of assembled guests.  “Miss him yet?”  You better believe we all do.
  76. 2021 Sunday M: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I- Elon Musk beats out Jeff Bezos and Amazon getting a $3 billion NASA contract with which to return Americans to the moon. Moving on, a Rasmussen poll says that 54-percent of likely American voters disapprove of what the Democrat-controlled Congress is doing.  We bet it’s way higher than that.   Another poll shows that since the Democrats stole the 2020 Presidential Election, CNN’s ratings have plummeted by 54-percent.  Equally hateful MSNBC also has seen severe losses in viewership.  Next, an Antifa watchdog group has released the mugshots of all the Black Lives Matter and Antifa thugs and punks arrested in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, for the world to see.  Most of them are spoiled white punks which leads us to reiterate what we have said before: when two generations of young people are spared the belt across their bare asses, this is what you end up with- punks.   Speaking of Brooklyn Center, riots continue in that city as well as in other cities across the nation as leftist scumbags prepare for the verdict in the murder trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin.   Finally, Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, says the lawsuit the state has on Joe Biden will force the feeble old fool to ‘enforce the law’ instead of avoiding it.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Temple of Rock, the ongoing project by Michael Schenker continues rocking forward.  Joining the smoking hot guitarist from the Fatherland are bassist Francis Buchholz, Michael Voss (vocals), Herman Rarebell (drums), and Wayne Findlay (keyboards).  The resulting effort produced “Spirit on a Mission,” which hit record store shelves on October 31, 2014.  One thing is for sure and that is you cannot keep good German rockers down as these guys have the fire in their bellies and it’s stoked up white hot.  We hope you will rush out and seek this one out NOW so you can add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

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

Sunday, April 18, 2021:

ENDNOTES:


[i] This is the TRUE government of China, Nationalist China which is FREE China.  Although these people inhabit Taiwan, the former island of Formosa, they are the true owners of mainland China, too, and the sooner they reclaim their birthright, the sooner the world will heal.

[ii] We look forward to sharing the music of this influential British band within the next five years.  Colosseum was overlooked when we shared the group of interconnected bands in which, Humble Pie, was a part.  Sorry for the oversight.

[iii] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.

[iv] We promoted the music of the famed San Francisco, California, rock band, Moby Grape, on Monday, 09-April-2012 through Monday, 23-April-2012.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.

[v] As always, our main source is “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, Da Capo Press, 2004.

[vi] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.

[vii] We hope to share the music of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band as well as Al Kooper sometime in the next 10-15 years.  We hope you will remain with us as loyal readers.

[viii] Not sure when we will begin celebrating the music of Joan Jett and the Blackhearts but when we do…you will be among the first to know.

[ix] As to when we will celebrate the life, times, and music of the late great Stevie Ray Vaughn and Double Trouble, we haven’t a clue so stay alert for the day we finally do.

[x] We doubt we will ever do the music of Green Day.

[xi] We hope to celebrate the music of Bill Withers one day.  Please stay alert for when that day arrives.  You will be glad you did.

[xii] We began promoting the music of the Velvet Underground starting on Tuesday, 18-March-2014 through Wednesday, 09-April-2014.  At the time we promoted this famous New York City rock band, we failed to share the music of the man himself, Lou Reed.  We hope to rectify that mistake when we return to promoting American bands again.  Thank you for your patience.

[xiii] Bing has returned to reporting update numbers (well, mostly).  Here is the link: (1) covid-19 u.s. and global statistics – Bing

[xiv]See previous.

[xv] We obtain our statistics for the coronavirus from: (1) covid-19 u.s. and global statistics – Bing

[xvi] (1) Currency Converter – Bing See this site for currency conversions.

[xvii] AAA Gas Prices– See this site for nationwide daily gasoline averages.

[xviii] U.S. National Debt Clock : Real Time (usdebtclock.org) See this site for the U.S. National Debt Clock.

[xix] Here’s another shooting we will lay at the feet of Joe Biden- the shooting in Laplace, Louisiana, yesterday at a child’s birthday party.  Six people were shot and injured there.  Is it not amazing how many gun crimes are occurring with Joe Biden in the White House?  By the time this POS is out of office (hopefully later this year), he will have set the record for mass shootings.

  62. 2018 Monday: A new report arises noting the Russian propaganda efforts to sway media and election on social media are much more intense than previously thought, especially their attempts at swaying the views of African Americans.  Everyone knows the Russians are scum and continue doing this just as other nations do- including the U.S.  It is what it is.   Meanwhile, U.S. Prime Minister Theresa May is facing challenges to her leadership as Brexit continues moving at a snail’s pace.   Elsewhere, CBS News says terminated producer Les Moonves, caught up in #MeToo charges, won’t receive his $120 million payout as he leaves the network.  Sucks to be him…
  63. 2019 Tuesday: The run-up to the impeachment vote of President Donald J. Trump continues as Congressman Jaime Raskin, D-MD, sitting in for House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-NY, and ranking member, Congressman Doug Collins, R-SC, appear before the House Rules Committee to hammer out the terms under which the impeachment trial will occur in the U.S. Senate.  Meanwhile, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, blasts Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY, over his refusal to indulge the Democrat’s desire to call more witnesses noting that the Constitution says nothing about the Senate doing the work of the House.  The Senate serves as the jury in impeachment proceedings and nothing more.  F**k off, Chuck.
  64. 2020 Thursday: The U.S. government confirms the recent hacking of various departments.  Most believe it’s either Russia or communist China, possibly Iran.  Meanwhile, the House GOP urge President Donald J.

Trump from almost after the 2020 Presidential Election.  Shame on you, Senator McConnell, shame on you.
  67. 2020 Thursday C: A recent Emerson poll reports that Senator Kelly Loeffler holds a 3-point lead over far-left, pro-Nation of Islam bigot the ‘Reverend’ Raphael Warnock in their Georgia run-off Senate race while her fellow Senator David Perdue is in a dead heat with pajama boy, Jon Ossoff.   Elsewhere, Google and parent company Alphabet are hit with their third anti-trust lawsuit over their abuse of market power.  Texas and nine other states are going after the corrupt entity and we hope that they end up being broken up along with Facebook and Twitter.   Meanwhile, we hear that following Vice President Mike Pence holds the final confirmation count on January 6 in the U.S. Senate, he will then leave on an overseas trip. 
  68. 2020 Thursday D: Atlantic City is going to auction off the right to implode the former Trump Casino in that city.  Meanwhile, the Chinese Virus pandemic has caused 8 million Americans to fall into poverty over the last six months.  Elsewhere, due to redistricting beginning next year, political observers predict the GOP will recapture the House of Representatives in 2022.  That is, unless the Democrats use their fraudulent vote corruption and theft strategy, which many astute political observers such as we believe will cause the GOP NEVER to win another election ever.  Speaking of Democratic corruption, President Trump says thousands of dead people voted across Nevada in last month’s presidential election.  Might as well have added the illegal aliens, the felons, the incarcerated, the underage, the stupid, the ignorant, and the space aliens, too.
  69. 2020 Thursday E: Astronomers say they have detected radio transmissions from an exoplanet.  So far, astronomers have discovered more than 4,500 exoplanets orbiting other stars but this is the first time they have discovered radio signals- or so they believe- coming from one of these planets.  Astronomers have reported the signals come from the Tau Boötes system, one that contains a binary star and an exoplanet.  They believe the emissions come from the planet itself.  The system if 51 light years from earth with a light year equaling approximately 6 trillion miles.  Quite a ways away, folks.
  70. 2020 Thursday F: President Donald J. Trump withholds $200 million in Medicaid money from California.   HHS Secretary Alex Azar will withhold the money over the state’s demand that insurers provide abortion coverage at taxpayers’ expense. Meanwhile, the John Roberts’ U.S. Supreme Court rejects a Kentucky religious school’s desire to reopen despite the Chi-Vi lockdown.  Elsewhere, Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announces a statewide ballot audit. Next, California Democratic Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell keeps his lips zipped over his alleged lengthy ongoing affair with a Chi-Com MSS agent.   Finally, a Homeland Security Department watchdog blasts ICE for putting illegal aliens in solitary confinement and abusing them mentally.  Oh, boohoo, mojados, don’t come.
  71. 2020 Thursday I: Speaking of the Chi-Vi, states say Pfizer vaccine estimates for next week have been slashed.  Elsewhere, the FDA announces a study that may allow for homosexual and bisexual men to give blood donations, something that has never been allowed because of them spreading HIV-AIDS.  Finally, the CDC reports that drug overdose deaths in the U.S. over a 12-month period are the highest ever.

  73. 2020 Wednesday K: Here is tonight’s Thursday Night Football game: (1) Los Angeles Chargers, 30 (5-9) @ Las Vegas Raiders, 27 (8-6) OT.
  74. 2020 Thursday L: Folks, we encourage everyone to remain vigilant to discover what the Chi-Coms, the Russians, the Iranians, the Venezuelans, Cubans, North Koreans, and the lackeys in the U.S., the Democrats are up to today…speaking of these scurrilous skunks, ‘President-elect pro-China Joe’ Biden informs the world that ‘he is not concerned with son Hunter’s increasing legal troubles’ regarding tax fraud, corruption, and dealing with hostile foreign powers.  Lock him up and throw away the key.   Regarding Hunter, President Trump says he has ‘nothing to do’ with any federal prosecution of “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s son.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Back on the road, the J. Geils Band was rocking and rolling and with a new label bankrolling them, there was no stopping them.  Their original label- Atlantic Records- decided to make a few bucks off the catalogue so on June 05, 1979, it released “Best of J. Geils Band.”  The album is a glorious collection of some of the band’s best tunes, beginning with the iconic “Southside Shuffle” through “Whammer Jammer” (a superb guitar showcase) to “Must a Got Lost” to the live version of “Lookin’ for a Love” from the album, “Full House.”  We hope you will seek out this nine-tune compendium of the crème de la crème of the J. Geils Band and add it to your growing collection of the absolute best in rock music.
