- 2006 Monday: The Washington Post releases a report conducted by the U.S. Marine Corps, a classified report obtained God knows how, that shows the U.S. Military no longer believes it is capable of defeating the Sunni insurgency in the western portion of Iraq nor al-Qaida whose influence continues growing among the Sunni minority worried about the power of the Shiite majority.

Meanwhile, in Egypt’s Tahrir Square, more than 200,000 angry Egyptians turn out in the biggest protest against Islamist thug President Mohamed Morsi. The POS SOB wants to make Egypt into another Islamist state which the citizens of the ageless nation simply don’t want.

- 2015 Friday: In Colorado Springs, Colorado, 57-year-old Robert Lewis carries out an attack on a Planned Parenthood ‘chop shop’ killing three people and wounding another nine people at the clinic.
- 2016 Sunday: Hated by the people of Cuba but much beloved by socialists, communists, and Democrats, Fidel Castro, leader of ‘The Revolution’ finally dies at the age of 90. The POS should have died in the crib. Meanwhile, President-elect Donald J. Trump says that ‘millions of illegal alien voters cost him the popular vote.’ This is TRUE as both California and New York- among other states- are overrun with the vermin. We hope he will round them up, build the wall, and deport them all. Meanwhile, the Clinton team joins Dr. Jill Stein, Green Party presidential candidate, demanding a recount in Wisconsin.
- 2017 Monday: During a ceremony with Navajo Code Talkers of World War II, to the delight of the assembled Native American crowd and to the horror of liberals and Democrats everywhere, President Donald J. Trump refers to Senator Elizabeth Warren, noted phony Indian, as Pocahontas. Eventually, the Massachusetts Democrat would have a DNA test conducted that would show she is 1,124th– that’s right- 1,124th Cherokee. Wow.
- 2018 Tuesday: The United States accuses the wife of Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega, a communist, Rosario Murillo- who also happens to be the nation’s vice president- of human rights abuses among other crimes and imposes sanctions. Meanwhile, in the United States, Samuel Little- a convicted murderer- confesses to the murders of 90 women across the country.
- 2019 Wednesday: President Donald J. Trump signs two bills favorable to Hong Kong, confirming both its autonomous status while the other bans the sale of munitions and weapons to the Hong Kong police. Of course, the Chi-Coms go berserk. Meanwhile, Ghana commemorates ‘the year of return,’ which marks 300 years since the first African slaves were sold to slavers and grants 125 people citizenship in a special ceremony- so says, “On This Day.”
- 2020 Friday: Vilified by anti-Trumpers across the country, the war against Plaquenil, aka hydroxychloroquine, is once again proven to be a bogus war, a war launched by liberal Democrats and pseudo-Republicans to defeat President Donald J. Trump. Studies demonstrate that people using the anti-malarial drug are 84-percent less likely to undergo hospitalization for COVID-19. All throughout this year, any time President Donald J. Trump extolled the virtues of hydroxychloroquine, his enemies relentlessly attacked the drug via attacking him. Elsewhere, we learn that in Pennsylvania, at least 21,000 DEAD PEOPLE voted in the 2020 Elections, most of them for “Pro-China Joe” Biden. Across the country, there are 1.8 million ghost voters on the voter rolls. This must be stopped.
- 2020 Friday A: Sadly, we learn that Pennsylvania state Senator Doug Mastriano who chaired the hearings into voter fraud in the Keystone State last week has had his Twitter account closed by the social media propaganda site. What a shame. Regarding this left-wing propaganda, President Donald J. Trump says Section 230, the entity that protects the social media giants, should be terminated since it’s a national security risk. Meanwhile, we learn that 409 miles of border wall have been built the past four years with another 242 currently under construction and another 87 in the pre-building phase. The question is, IF “Pro-China Joe” Biden does become president, what is going to happen to the border wall? Finally, former Congressman David Valadao, R-CA, wins back his 21st U.S. House seat from corrupt Democratic carpetbagger and one-term Congressman T.J. Cox. That’s another nail in the coffin of House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi. Congratulations, Congressman-elect Valadao!
- 2020 Friday B: In a great news update, an Iranian nuclear scientist suspected of masterminding the country’s nuclear programs- including weapons- was assassinated while driving outside of Tehran. The scientist, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, was essential for the development of nuclear weapons so his slaying purportedly at the hands of the Israeli Mossad is a big setback for the outlaw nation. Meanwhile, the Israelis are pressuring “Pro-China Joe” Biden NOT to resume participation in the JCPOA, the multi-nation agreement with the Iranians not to build a nuclear weapons program but to pursue peaceful energy production instead. Whether the enfeebled ‘president-elect’ will follow the wishes of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is unknown; we shall see. Anyway, good riddance to Fakhrizadeh.
- 2020 Friday C: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox: Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 61,473,875 confirmed cases, +754,296, 1,440,207, confirmed deaths, +13,203, and 39,266,692 confirmed recoveries, +361,915.

Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 162,045 confirmed cases, 2,825 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.

Let’s look at one other state: Arkansas- currently, they have 155,637 confirmed cases, 2,436 confirmed deaths, and 134,312 confirmed recoveries.

Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ: 12,205.85, UP 111.44 points (+0.92%). Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,638.35, UP 8.70 points (+0.24%).

Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.57 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.84 euros. Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.80 Afghan afghani.

Beverly Carrick: The World’s Greatest Artist (1927-2012)
ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
The modern era Foreigner recorded a show in Nashville, Tennessee, “Rockin’ at the Ryman,” a DVD that came out on April 26, 2011 and featured yet another somewhat altered lineup of Mick Jones (guitars), Thom Gimbel (guitars, vocals, keyboards, and horns), Michael Bluestein (keyboards), Jeff Pilson (bass, vocals), Jason Sutter (drums), and Kelly Hansen (vocals). This is the DVD version of the album, one that contains 16 red-hot classics, both old and new, all for a new audience of listeners. Friends, there are not many bands from the ORIGINAL DAYS (well, in the case of Foreigner, somewhat original days as they were a decade behind the dinosaurs like the Stones, the Kinks, the Who, the Animals, the Yardbirds, Led Zeppelin, Faces, Humble Pie) so whenever one is still on the prowl and cleaner than the day they entered the music business, one must take note and give them a listen- you will be glad you did. Great album by a great band that still can crank it up and blow out their fans. Check ‘em out.

TODAY IN HISTORY, FRIDAY NOVEMBER 27, 2020
PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.
Friday, November 27, 2020:
[i] The states celebrating the Day After Thanksgiving are California, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia.
[ii] In 2019, Democrats are screeching like banshees over President Donald J. Trump sending Rudy Giuliani to serve as his special envoy to the Ukraine when in fact, every president has dispatched special envoys of his choice to conduct business or to investigate on the president’s behalf. There is NOTHING wrong with this practice no matter what the flipping Democrats claim.
[iii] 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. The “Magical Mystery Tour” album appeared on Wednesday, 23-November-2016. Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.
[iv] “All Things Must Pass,” a three-record set appeared on Friday, 09-December-2016. Please, seek it out and consider adding it to your collection.
[v] As it turned out, President Clinton’s testimony was false and he suffered for it later by losing his license to practice law for one year. His testimony was proven false when a friend of Monica Lewinsky produced a semen-stained blue dress that matched the president’s DNA. My, my, my!
[vi] It is important to note that Al Gore and the Democrats did everything possible to steal this election from the Republicans which sure as hell ain’t right but it’s what they do. Shame.
[vii] Question: is this man a Ukrainian or a Russian? The Democrats are always wailing and screaming about “THE RUSSIANS! THE RUSSIANS!” yet only the Democrats seem to pal around with the Russkies. WTF? Supposedly, Mr. Mezvinsky was born in Philadelphia on 12-10-1977 but his birthplace could be as phony as Barack Hussein Obama’s.
