The famed city has been surrounded by Axis troops since late fall of 1941. Meanwhile, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt sailed from Miami to Trinidad becoming the first U.S. president to visit a foreign nation during wartime.

  53. 2016 Sunday: Mexico begins the process of extraditing narcoterrorist Joaquim “El Chapo” Guzman to the United States.  Meanwhile, in Yemen, five people are killed in a bombing on a Doctors without Borders hospital.
  54. 2017 Tuesday: As Inauguration Day reports, ‘unsubstantiated reports’ arise that ‘Russia has compromising material on President-elect Donald J. Trump.’  This story turns out to be completely bogus.  Speaking of the crap the leftists are using against the incoming president, the confirmation hearings for Senator Jeff Sessions to become the next attorney general of the United States are interrupted (like it wasn’t planned, right) who storm the Senate chamber screaming, “No Trump!  No KKK!  No Fascist USA!’  Anyone care to tell us this crap was not pre-planned?
  55. 2018 Wednesday: Following the amazing mark that Jeff Bezos’ personal wealth hits $106 billion due to a rise in the price of Amazon shares, he becomes the second man in the world to possess wealth in surplus of $100 billion.   This is a man that Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders- among others- want to destroy.  Meanwhile, President Trump digs in on his demand for funding for the border wall: “WE NEED THE WALL.”
  56. 2019 Thursday: According to data published in the scientific journal “Science,” the world’s oceans are warming faster than expected due to the burning of fossil fuels.  Many believe this is all propaganda designed to bring about the formation of a one-world government that leaders of the Third World will control and with which to redistribute the wealth of First World nations to S-hole countries.  Elsewhere, today is the first day that federal government workers miss a paycheck- all 800,000 of them- which leads to Democrats stirring up protests and ginning up anger among their street trash.
  57. 2020 Friday: Democrats are now blaming President Donald J. Trump for the Iranian shootdown of a Ukrainian jetliner that killed 176 people aboard her.  Yes, their arguments are convoluted and crazy but it’s all they have.  Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, chewing her cud[xiii], says she is ‘going to send the articles of impeachment to the U.S. Senate NEXT week.’  Most political observers are skeptical of this statement.  However, the dilapidated speaker says she will meet with her caucus in the House on Tuesday.  Does she possess the pair of humongous balls to move ahead?  We suspect she will because AOC is plotting behind her back.  Meanwhile, Tehran swears on a stack of holy Qurans that they did NOT shoot down the Ukrainian airliner.  Finally, Marianne Williamson becomes the 14th Democrat to abandon the 2020 race.  Oprah- WTF did you continue supporting someone you encouraged to enter the race.
  58. 2021 Sunday: The NFL’s Wildcard Weekend continues today with three more games in our expanded playoff format: (4) Baltimore Ravens, 20 (12-5) @ Tennessee Titans, 13 (11-6) (5) Chicago Bears, 9 (8-9) @ New Orleans Saints, 21 (13-4) and (6) Cleveland Browns, 48 (12-5) @ Pittsburgh Steelers, 37 (12-5).  Regarding the NFL, Pepsi says it’s going to concentrate on the upcoming Super Bowl LV half-time show and not so much on TV commercials. 
  59. 2021 Sunday A: In what many believe to be ‘too much, too late,’ the House Democrats have their articles of impeachment against President Donald J. Trump ready to go tomorrow.  Most believe their hope is to prevent the 45th president from seeking federal office ever again if they are able to squeeze a successful vote to impeach vote out of the U.S. Senate.  A growing number of Republicans are urging incoming ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden to order House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi to stop the proceedings as it will only rip the country further apart.  NO one expects that Biden will stop them, he wants to see his predecessor suffer.  Mitch McConnell, R-KY, says that the Senate won’t reconvene until January 19 so no impeachment proceedings can begin until Inauguration Day.  Meanwhile, the House of Representatives plans to increase travel security for its members following Senator Lindsey Graham being heckled at Reagan International Airport.  Elsewhere, D.C. Mayor says she is ‘concerned about securing ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden’s safety’ on Inauguration Day which tells us that the Democrats plan on another FALSE FLAG operation on January 20, 2021, in which white Antifa members will be dressed in Trump garb and will riot across the city.  How diabolical.
  60. 2021 Sunday B: In a move that surprised NO one, the Pentagon says it’s going to rename U.S. military bases named for Confederate States of America war heroes.  Wimps.   Meanwhile, the U.S. military is upping its preparations for Inauguration Day.  Regarding this matter and the storming of Capitol Hill this past Wednesday, former NYPD Police Commissioner Bill Bratton says he’s shocked at the lack of preparedness exhibited by the Capitol Hill police.  Perhaps he did not see the tape where cops behind the Capitol Building were waving the demonstrators into the facility?  Seems as though they had orders to allow the Antifa mob in.  Speaking of Antifa, Fox News’ Judge Jeannine Pirro says, “Republicans must stop blaming Antifa for Wednesday’s events.”  F— you, judge.  
  61. 2021 Sunday C: BIG TECH giants have coordinated their attack on FREE SPEECH alternative to Twitter, Parler, with most app stores and server sites announcing they are either out of their stores or will be closed and denied server service come midnight tonight.  Likewise, Brad Parscale- former Trump campaign manager- says he urged President Trump to go to Parler sooner because he anticipated that Facebook and Twitter would ban the 45th president’s social media accounts sooner than they did.  Speaking of BIG TECH, RINO Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, swears he’s going to do something about Section 230.  Sure, Lindsey, sure.  Regarding Section 230 which came up during the formation of the Defense bill, there is funding in that document for the creation of a new cyber czar to oversee America’s cyber defenses.
  62. 2021 Sunday D: Scientists report that the Earth is spinning faster on its axis than it has in decades.  Meanwhile, scientists also tell us that 2020 was a devastating year for costly climate events what with 22 events costing a billion dollars or more per each event.  Of course this will lead the incoming 46th president to force the Green New Deal through both houses of Congress and into high-tax reality.  Not good for the American people.  Elsewhere, a tornado touches down in the central Texas town of Franklin which leaves hundreds of families displaced.
  63. 2021 Sunday E: Israel is deploying its anti-missile defenses pending threat of Iranian nuclear strikes.  The mullahs are always jabbering about nuking Israel, we should nuke them first.  Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo lifts self-imposed restrictions on visiting Taiwan.  This will allow the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations to visit the Republic of China which has Beijing upset.  Next, Indonesian divers pull wreckage and body parts from the Srivijaya Air Passenger jet that crashed earlier this week north of Jakarta.  Elsewhere, the Capitol Hill police officer whose head was stoved in by an Antifa thug wielding a fire extinguisher this past Wednesday- Officer Brian D. Sicknick- may lie in state in the Capitol Rotunda.  
  64. 2021 Sunday F: Crowdfunding site “GoFundMe” says, ‘it’s going to ban the raising of funds for those who challenged the 2020 Presidential Election.’  How nice.   Meanwhile, Bitcoin doubles in price to a new record in less than 30 days.  Love that cryptocurrency.
  65. 2021 Sunday G: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 90,180,310 confirmed cases, +663,871, 1,932,948, confirmed deaths, +8,944, and 49,948,772 confirmed recoveries, +279,343.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 24,451,123 confirmed cases, up 119,755 from yesterday’s reporting, 376,521 confirmed deaths, UP 1,482, and 9,850,654 confirmed recoveries, UP 22,750.
  66. 2021 Sunday H: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 2,687,085 confirmed cases, 29,701 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 23,341 confirmed cases, 309 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 275,832 confirmed cases, 3,775 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Kansas: currently, they have 345,541 confirmed cases, 3,148 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 491,319 confirmed cases, 3,671 confirmed deaths, and 412,296 confirmed recoveries.
  67. 2021 Sunday I: Senator Pat Toomey, RINO-PA, joins fellow RINO Senator from Alaska Lisa Murkowski to demand that President Trump step down from the presidency because of HIS CALLING HIS FOLLOWERS TO REVOLT which he did not do.  The impeachment articles being introduced tomorrow have 185 co-sponsors.  Currently, federal law enforcement is arresting numerous people who participated in the storming of the Capitol Building on Wednesday but NO mention of them being Antifa members (which we know they are).  Still, this is the direction in which, we are going- full left-wing lockdown thanks to the Dems and the RINOs doing what they are doing.
  68. 2021 Sunday J: Folks, we live in crazy times but there is ONE CONSTANT that does not change- the crookedness of money-grubbing Democrats and their RINO pals and buddies and the unseen hand behind the curtain- the Chi-Coms in Beijing.  We encourage everyone to stick around and discover whatever the truth may be today- you will be glad you did.

TODAY IN HISTORY, SUNDAY JANUARY 10, 2021

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

Sunday, January 10, 2021:

ENDNOTES:


[i] We began promoting the music of an interconnected group of bands including the Small Faces, Faces, and Rod Stewart beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This was a massive undertaking of rock bands and solo artists so we hope you will seek them out and consider adding the music to your album collection.

[ii] We began presenting the music of the Mothers of Invention and of Frank Zappa beginning on Monday, 21-January-2013 and concluded the presentation on Monday, 13-May-2013.  Please seek them out, we believe you will enjoy the music of this famed man and his band

[iii] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.  This presentation included the Jefferson Starship, too, of which, the artist was NOT a member.

[iv] We expect to promote the music of Steely Dan sometime within the next decade or so.

[v] At some point when we return to presenting the music of American bands, we will promote that of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers as well as of Tom Petty himself.  We hope you will await word as to when we do.  We thank you.

[vi] We look forward to promoting the music of UFO and of the Michael Schenker Group at some point within the next year.  We hope you will remain vigilant as to the day that we do.

[vii] We promoted “Introducing the Beatles” on Sunday, 06-November-2016.

[viii] We promoted “Meet the Beatles” on Monday, 07-November-2016.

[ix] 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.

[x] We promoted George Harrison’s “Concert for Bangladesh” on Thursday, 16-December-2016.  We hope you will seek the album out and add it to your collection.

[xi] Sometime within the next decade, we hope to present the music of classic rockers Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters, and numerous others.  We know you will enjoy the presentation so please; remain vigilant for the day we do.

[xii] We hope to promote the music of David Bowie within the next decades.

[xiii] Many people who contact us with comments are curious as to why someone so deranged as Nancy Pelosi is allowed to continue in her post.  Why hasn’t her No. 2, Steny Hoyer, D-Md., not come up behind her and busted a cap on her head?  We have no answer.  However, many believe that the Baby Evita- AOC- aka the FLY- is the one calling the shots and that older Democrats fear having her primary them in this year’s elections by putting up nuts like her, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib, to take them out.  Time for a ‘Night of the Long Knives,’ folks, to remove these youngsters as threats to the established order.

  48. 2020 Thursday: In the morning, a disheveled and highly incoherent Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-CA, rambled on about how she was going to send the ‘impeachment articles’ to the Senate when she ‘damned well pleased.’  It is becoming clearer and clearer to all non-senile onlookers that the Speaker has little to no clue as to where she is or what she is saying.  Even Senate Democrats- like Sen. Dianne Feinstein and Sen. Joe Manchin are saying ‘put up or shut up.’  Meanwhile, in Iran, it now seems likely that a Ukrainian jetliner that went down around the same time the IRG was shooting its missile ‘barrage’ in the direction of Iraq was shot down by the Russian-built Iranian air defenses.  Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau basically admitted as much seeing as how 63 of the 179 aboard were his citizens.  What are you going to do it, Mr. Prime Minister?  Most likely, NOTHING.  
  49. 2021 Saturday: Today is Wildcard Weekend in the NFL in our expanded playoff format: (1) Indianapolis Colts, 24 (11-6) @ Buffalo Bills. 27 (14-3) (2) Los Angeles Rams, 30 (11-6) @ Seattle Seahawks, 20 (12-5) and (3) Tampa Bay (11-5) @ Washington Redskins (7-9). Note- it’s time for the Seahawks to fire Coach Pete Carroll.  He’s a bum.  Also stick around for tonight’s Super Lotto and Powerball drawings.
  50. 2021 Saturday A: BIG TECH bans the new social media app Parler over claims it does not moderate its site for ‘unacceptable content.’  Folks, when BIG TECH crippled Alex Jones and Infowars, everyone should have woken up and taken note.  This is the United States of America, NOT the People’s Republic of China- we have freedom of speech rights here.  Period.  Elsewhere, “America’s Mayor” Rudy Giuliani urges President Trump to declassify ALL records on the ‘Russian collusion scandal’ and on ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden’s ties to the Chi-Coms.  We also want to see the UFO files, too, Mr. President.  Meanwhile, an incoming congresswoman from Illinois finds herself in ‘hot water’ for having made comments tying Democrats to Nazis.  Then, ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden begins blasting the GOP by tying them…guess what: Nazis.  It never ends.
  51. 2021 Saturday B: Washington, D.C. police are investigating a suspicious package found near the Capitol today.  Antifa left a bomb, perhaps?  You never know.  Meanwhile, Richard Barnett- the man who participating in storming the Capitol Building this past Wednesday and who first seated himself at Pelosi’s desk and then carried off her podium, turned himself into federal agents today.  Dimwit.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump- facing a second impeachment- confirms he won’t attend the inauguration of ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden on January 20.  This will make the 45th president the fourth president- following John Adams, John Quincy Adams, and Andrew Johnson- not to attend the inauguration of his successor.  Why should he?  It is clear the presidential election was a fraud.  ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden did not beat President Trump by an Electoral College vote of 306-232 nor did he win the votes of 80 million Americans.  Period.  Speaking of President Trump, noted liberal lawyer Alan Dershowitz says that ‘Trump did nothing wrong in his speech this past Wednesday.’  Perhaps he will defend him at his second impeachment trial?
  52. 2021 Saturday C: Speaking of the mob violence at the Capitol this past Wednesday, engineered by Antifa and Black Lives Matter human fecal matter, the Department of Justice says there are NO charges against President Trump for ‘incitement of violence.’  What we saw on Wednesday was a well-orchestrated false flag operation carried off by Antifa and BLM.  We must give credit where credit is due and they did a hell of a job of it.  Elsewhere, President Donald Trump hints at the creation of a new social media platform.  Mr. President, you will need to create your own ‘Google,’ too, because there is NO freedom of speech if one does not control the servers upon which the platform exists.  Speaking of Twitter, Rudy Giuliani basically has labeled them a ‘fascist operation.’  In the same vein, Trump ally, Jason Miller, says, ‘if you don’t think they’re coming for you, you’re mistaken.’   Finally, 2020 was a bad year for the news media what with the loss of 30,000 or more jobs in the fake news industry.
  53. 2021 Saturday D: The Centers for Disease Control announce that 59-percent of all COVID-19 cases are caused by asymptomatic spread.   Meanwhile, a study shows coronavirus immunity lasts up to 8 months in 90-percent of patients.
  54. 2021 Saturday E: COVID-19 Daily Update:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 89,516,439 confirmed cases, +734,302, 1,924,004, confirmed deaths, +12,908, and 49,669,429 confirmed recoveries, +307,155.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 22,331,368 confirmed cases, up 281,916 from yesterday’s reporting, 375,039 confirmed deaths, UP 3,574, and 9,827,904 confirmed recoveries, UP 42,393.
  55. 2021 Saturday F: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 2,639,814 confirmed cases, 29,233 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 23,143 confirmed cases, 307 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 273,142 confirmed cases, 3,768 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Nevada: currently, they have 246,309 confirmed cases, 3,450 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 485,434 confirmed cases, 3,645 confirmed deaths, and 412,296 confirmed recoveries.
  56. 2021 Saturday G: Here are the results for tonight’s Super Lotto Draw #3524 with a jackpot of $10 million on the line: 03, 04, 17, 34, 39, and Mega 20.  Out of 118,277 winning tickets, the highest winners were EIGHT people who had FOUR plus the Mega for a prize of $2,687 apiece.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #810 with a BIG POT of $470 million up for grabs: 14, 26, 38, 45, 46, and Powerball 13.  Out of 280,550 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $37,117 apiece.
  57. 2021 Saturday H: Friends, we encourage everyone to stick around today to discover whatever news arises that continues showing the stooges of Beijing- the Democratic Party- doing whatever it is they’re doing to tip our country into the camp of the Chi-Coms.  We cannot permit them to steal the country from we, the American people…then again, if we cannot beat them, we may have to join them! Hail China!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Some wag with assets to the vault of the J. Geils Band released a historic live show on May 10, 2017: “Homework: Live at the Fillmore East, New York July 27, 1971.”  This of course would be an early live show, earlier than “Full House Live,” one recorded at one of the world’s twin greatest rock venues, the legendary Fillmore East back in the day before morons like Andrew Cuomo ruined the state of a loser like Bill Di Blasio destroyed the city.  If anything, Di Blasio might have been at the show, stoned on cheap Mexican reefer and Boone’s Farm apple wine and with his hand in some guy’s pants.  Ah, well, we hope all of you seek this amazing album out wherever you shop for the finest in rock music- you will be so glad you did.

  61. 2020 Wednesday: President Trump tells the assembled media that ‘As long as he is president, Iran will NEVER have nuclear weapons.’  The president also urged NATO to take a greater role in the Middle East while encouraging all other signatories of the Iran Nuclear Deal- including Russia and China- to bail out.  In addition to that, President Trump promised even more sanctions against the Iranian regime with the desired purpose of having the dictatorship return to the society of nations.  Defense and intelligence officials brief Congress on the missile barrage the Iranians shot off in the vicinity of U.S. targets in Iraq.  Sparse damage was sustained and no lives were lost although Radio Tehran bragged about 80 or more American casualties.   Some Democrats continue labeling President Trump an ‘assassin’ while most Americans believe what he did to be justified.  
  62. 2021 Friday: It appears that Democrats are cowering in their corners over what President Donald J. Trump ‘might do in the days remaining to him.’  Could he release all sorts of data on “Pro-China Joe” Biden, the Democrat leadership, and others and their close ties to the Chi-Coms?  Hence why the Dems are urging Vice President Mike Pence to commune with the Cabinet (members leaving as we speak) so they can use the 25th Amendment to remove the 45th president (Pence won’t) or why they are proclaiming they are going to launch a second impeachment against President Trump in the less than two weeks remaining in his term.  In the same vein, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi spoke to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff- General Mark A. Milley to see if he would prohibit President Trump from launching nuclear barrages against the Chi-Coms, Iran, and other enemies of the U.S.  Wow.  Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal Editorial board says, ‘Trump should resign now.’
  63. 2021 Friday A: “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his wife, Jill, announce their first priority on entering the White House is to spend $1.2 million taxpayer dollars to renovate the bathrooms in the private residence.  Uh, okay, extremely important.  “Let them eat cake,” says Dr. Jill.  Next, ‘Vice President-elect Kooky Kamala’ Harris is taking heat from people across the board for her lambasting the purported Trump supporters’ riot on Capitol Hill on Wednesday when she encourage Black Lives Matter and Antifa to riot all summer, fall, and into the winter.  What a VP choice, folks, what a VP choice.   Speaking of violence, U.S. Catholic bishops condemn Wednesday’s riots.  Finally, the Boston bomber is suing the federal government over the prison restrictions forced upon him.
  64. 2021 Friday B:  Extreme intellect LeBron James says, “We live in two Americas.”  Yes, indeed, and you, you big POS, live in the upper crust one.  STFU.  Note of interest: we learned late last night that Marxist Chicago ‘Priest’ Father Michael Pfleger friend of Barack Hussein Obama- is stepping down from the priesthood seeing as how there are now allegations of child sexual abuse against him.  Oh, how the mighty fall.  On a humorous note, Senator Lindsey Graham, RINO Republican from South Carolina, receives loads of catcalls and negative rhetoric as he tries to head to his plane at Reagan International Airport.   About flipping time!  Finally, we learn that chief of staff to Vice President Mike Pence- Mark Strong- is the one who urged the VP not to fight the certification of the 2020 Presidential Election.  He is now barred from entering the White House grounds.  Remember that name: Mark Strong.  He hopes both he and VP Pence will have bought a future in mainstream Washington, D.C. politics.  (Note- President Trump is not going to attend the Biden-Harris inauguration but Mr. Pence will.  Florida Senator Rick Scott is also encouraging the 45th president to attend.  WHY?).  Speaking of maggots- former chief of staff General John Kelly, U.S. Army Ret., says he ‘would vote to remove Trump.’ 
  65. 2021 Friday C: President Trump awards the medal of freedom to three golfers- Annika Sorenstam, Gary Player, and Babe Zaharias.   Meanwhile, Ronna McDaniel is elected to another term as chair of the Republican National
    Committee whereas Hope Hicks says she is leaving next week.  Larry Kudlow and U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin are both remaining to the end of Trump’s term.    Next, President Trump promises to be a GIANT VOICE for his followers, all 77-80 million of them.  Finally, Simon and Schuster cancels Senator Josh Hawley’s book deal following his role in contesting the election results (which all the losers- both right and left- are using as an excuse to jump ship).
  66. 2021 Friday D: The U.S. has lost 140,000 jobs, the first monthly loss since the spring when government told us ‘we need to shut everything down for two weeks so we can flatten the curve.’  Result: a destroyed economy.  Elsewhere, Dodgers’ longtime player and manager Tommy Lasorda dead at age 93.  God bless you, Tommy!  Thank you for 1988!  Meanwhile, Elon Musk becomes the richest man in the world with $195 billion which is 10 billion more than Amazon.com owner Jeff Bezos.  Finally, Georgia U.S. Senator David Perdue follows in the footsteps of fellow Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler and concedes to his opponent, Sinophile and far-left-left-left Democrat Jon Ossoff.  It is over and it is done.
  67. 2021 Friday E: Former Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, U.S. Army Ret., and former national security adviser finds himself banned from Twitter.  U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the “U.S. is not a banana republic.” Elsewhere, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau blasts Trump for ‘inciting an assault on democracy.’ Mind your own business, twerp.  Meanwhile, the Rupert Murdoch empire calls for Trump to go but seeks to cling to the Trump base.  Finally, a report says that pipe bombs delivered to the RNC and the DNC contained timing devices. 
  68. 2021 Friday F: Here are the numbers for the COVID-19 global pandemic, the planet first: 88,203,229 confirmed cases, +290,489, 1,901,510, confirmed deaths, +6,121, and 49,203,004 confirmed recoveries, +189,840.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 22,011,358 confirmed cases, up 340,799 from yesterday’s reporting, 371,096 confirmed deaths, UP 4,662, and 9,776,573 confirmed recoveries, UP 79,660.

Trump this week is that he is an ‘assassin’ because he droned Quds Force scumbag terrorist leader Qassim Soleimani at the Baghdad Airport the previous week.  Meanwhile at the funeral of Gen. Soleimani in Tehran, 50 people are trampled to death and countless others injured as the million or more mourners go berserk.  What is it about these Muslim states that they know how to put on a ‘proper funeral?’  Meanwhile communist candidate Sen.

Trump NOW; otherwise, the Democrats will launch immediate impeachment hearings with the end goal being to remove him before Inauguration Day as well as to prevent him from ever seeking federal office again.  Following yesterday’s Antifa and Black Lives Matter on the U.S. Capitol yesterday, various Trump administration officials are jumping ship, the riot being the perfect excuse.  Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao is leaving as are Matthew Pottinger (deputy national security adviser), Stephanie Grisham (chief of staff to First Lady Melania Trump), Sarah Matthews (deputy press secretary), John Costello (deputy assistant secretary of commerce), Mick Mulvaney (former White House chief of staff and special envoy to Northern Ireland), Rickie Niceta (White House social secretary), and Ryan Tully (senior director for European and Russian affairs at the National Security Council).  Amazing how convenient the ‘storming of the Capitol’ was for both the Democrats and wavering Republicans to either attack Trump or to abandon ship.  Still, more are said to follow on their bootheels.  Imagine if our enemies nuked us now?
  60. 2021 Thursday B: Body count for yesterday’s ‘storming of the Capitol 2021’ are four dead including a 14-year USAF veteran.  In the aftermath of the violence, Facebook, and Instagram block Donald Trump indefinitely while Twitter deleted ALL Trump tweets and threatens the 45th President with a permanent suspension.  Meanwhile, disgraced former FBI Director James Comey says, “Donald Trump should NOT be prosecuted.”  How nice. Elsewhere, Judge Leslie Abrams Gardner- sister of Stacey Abrams- continues to say, “She won’t recuse herself from the Georgia election fraud cases.”  Wish Republicans possessed balls like she does.
  61. 2021 Thursday C: Early this morning, both chambers of Congress certified the Electoral College accounts following a joint session of Congress.  “Pro-China Joe” Biden and “Kooky Kamala” Harris are now president-elect and vice-president-elect.”  The Chi-Coms have won, the country is toppled, and we either must get with the socialist-communist program or find ourselves in the gulags building canals to nowhere.  Meanwhile, an ebullient Senator Chuck Schumer, D-NY, says, ‘getting $2,000 stimulus checks to the American people are high on his agenda.’  What he fails to say is that ‘all relief money is taxable.’  Elsewhere, FEMA approves a disaster declaration for the aftermath of the Nashville Christmas Day bombing.
  62. 2021 Thursday D: Last week 787 thousand Americans filed for first-time jobless benefits which is down from last week albeit still high.  Meanwhile, as people flee California, Sacramento reports tax revenues are down by 43-percent.  Woe to those who remain because they must make up the difference: this means, YOU, middle class Californians.  
  63. 2021 Thursday E: As problems continue in the nation’s capital, the D.C. bomb squad is evacuating the Capitol area following suspicious packages being found.  Meanwhile, Acting DHS Secretary Ken Cuccinelli has DHS officials erecting fencing around the Capitol Building to prevent another mob assault on the buildings of government.  Simultaneously, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser extends the emergency declaration keeping the city locked down and on curfew for an additional 15 days.  Meanwhile, the ‘ever-reputable’ New York Times says, ‘Donald Trump is considering a pardon for himself.’  Speaking of the NYT and the Washington Post, we learn that these notables of American Mainstream News Media have participated along with other news sites in Chinese Communist Party propaganda events.  My, my, my!
  64. 2021 Thursday F: U.S. corporations announce they are considering blocking monetary support to all Republicans who participated in the raising of objections over the fraudulent 2020 Presidential Election.  This is how it goes, anyone supportive of Trump or of the rule of law will now find him-or-herself banned from normal society.   Still, the 45th president continues doing his job by adding Alibaba and Tencent to the Chi-Com stock bans on Wall Street.  Also regarding the president, as protests sweep across the country designed to tarnish ALL Trump supporters, nine violent nuts undergo arrest in front of Trump Tower in Manhattan, N.Y.
  65. 2021 Thursday G: Amazon announces it’s going to invest $2 billion into building affordable housing in three locations across the United States. Meanwhile, Politico is reporting that Vice President Mike Pence will attend the inauguration of “Pro-China Joe” Biden on January 20, 2021. Elsewhere, the Girl Scouts of America are considering doing digital sales due to the Chi-Vi still running amok across the country.  Details on when sales will begin are coming soon.  They may still do door-to-door sales, too.
  66. 2021 Thursday H: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 87,792,629 confirmed cases, +1,040,315, 1,893,420, confirmed deaths, +18,100, and 49,009,936 confirmed recoveries, +372,200.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 21,670,559 confirmed cases, up 461,719 from yesterday’s reporting, 366,434 confirmed deaths, UP 6,589, and 9,696,913 confirmed recoveries, UP 101,980.
  67. 2021 Thursday I: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 2,548,494 confirmed cases, 28,040 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 22,527 confirmed cases, 299 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 265,790 confirmed cases, 3,681 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Iowa: currently, they have 291,394 confirmed cases, 4,065 confirmed deaths, and 251,660 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 463,448 confirmed cases, 3,529 confirmed deaths, and 398,638 confirmed recoveries. 
  68. 2021 Thursday J:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,041.13, UP 211.73 points (+0.69%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,067.48, UP 326.69 points (+2.56%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,803.79, UP 55.65 points (+1.48%).  The price of GOLD is $1,915.80 per troy oz., +2.20 (+0.11%) while the price of SILVER is $27.28 per troy ounce, +0.014 (+0.05%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,127.90 per troy oz, +3.30 (+0.29%) while the price of COPPER is $3.71 per pound, +0.0095 (+0.26%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,431.60 per troy oz, -16.50 (-0.67%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $50.96 per barrel, +0.13 (+0.26%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.48 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Russian rubles equals 74.34.
  69. 2021 Thursday K: After failing to stop the Antifa mob (in the guise of Trump supporters) that stormed the Capitol Building yesterday, Capitol Hill Police Chief Steven Sund is going to go into retirement.  He is suffering blame for not having anticipated the actions of Antifa trash that infiltrated the peaceful Trump supporters.  (It is important to note that a Capitol Hill police officer died today following injuries suffered in yesterday’s riot).  Federal prosecutors plan to file charges- including sedition charges- against at least 15 people involved in the storming of the Capitol yesterday.  Elsewhere, Boeing is going to pay a $2.5 billion fine over its attempt to cover up the issues of the 737 Boeing Max airliner that suffered two major crashes.   Meanwhile, Michelle Obama urges social media to ban Donald Trump permanently; she also lambastes his supporters using all manner of vile and hateful language.  Thank you, former Madam First Lady.
  70. 2021 Thursday L: Iraq’s Supreme Judicial Council has issued an arrest warrant for President Donald J. Trump following a year-long investigation into the whacking of Quds Force General Qassim Soleimani at the Baghdad airport last year via drone strike.  The charges of murder could bring about the death penalty.  Iran has issued an Interpol ‘red notice’ for President Trump and 47 of his top officials.  Interpol waved off this request before but now with Trump on the outs, one just never knows.   Meanwhile, CNN (a bogus source) reports that President Trump encouraged Vice President Mike Pence to ‘engineer a coup on his behalf’ and then when the mob of Antifa and BLM thugs, he did ‘little to nothing to make sure the VP and his attendant family members were secure from the violent left-wing mob.’  Wow.  We expect history will be revised and that between the 44th and 46th presidents there will be a GAP- NO 45th president.  The victors typically write the history… Finally, after a ‘pro-Trump mob’ surrounded the Georgia State Capitol Building, law enforcement had to escort a terrified Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger out of the facility and into his car.  It just gets better.
  71. 2021 Thursday M: Acting U.S. Attorney for D.C. Michael Sherwin says, ‘it’s possible that charges may be brought against the 45th president once he leaves office,’ citing his ‘language’ and ‘coarse gesticulations’ that spurred on a crowd of his ‘supporters’ to rush to the Capitol Building and storm into it.  IF you watched the president’s speech to his supporters, you know he did no such thing and had not social median not immediately taken down his tweets in which, he begged for peace, you know he did none of what the liberals are accusing him of doing. Later in the day, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos offered her resignation over the events of the previous day.  Meanwhile, Senator Kelly Loeffler concedes to the Reverend Raphael Warnock putting both U.S. Senate seats in the Peach State into the hands of the Democrats, thus cementing Senator Chuck Schumer’s position as the BIG CHEESE in the U.S. Senate.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by the J. Geils Band is an amazing one, a LIVE album: “House Party Live in Germany” (February 23, 2015).  This is a great show from April 21, 1979 at the Rockpalast, the famed concert hall in Germany where every band worth its salt goes and performs, delivering live albums galore.  What you get here is a CD of their best tunes live in smoking concert and then you get the DVD featuring the band performing those songs.  We hope you will rush out to wherever you shop for the finest in rock music because this one is awesome, absolutely awesome.  A little pricey at $50 or so, it is still worth the investment, especially when the other option is to go buy a Maroon Five album.  How those losers or Coldplay sell as many records as they do is a clear testament to how testosterone levels among younger men are in decline.

  58. 2020 Monday: At the Golden Globes, actress Michelle Williams celebrates her abortion before a likeminded crowd of liberal losers and activists.  What the hell is up with the Pro-Death movement?  Killing the unborn is the most sadistic, evil thing one can do.  Yet, these pro-Satanists celebrate it like they’re killing cockroaches.  Shame.  Meanwhile, U.S. Senator Kelly Loeffler enters the world’s greatest deliberative body on today’s date representing the Peach State.  Elsewhere, ever-disloyal John Bolton says, ‘I’m willing to testify at President Donald J. Trump’s impeachment trial.’  Perfect example of a Deep State apparatchik.   
  59. 2021 Wednesday: Millions of patriots arrived in the nation’s capital today to support President Trump.  The president spoke to them and rallied the crowd.  Then, the certification of the 2020 Presidential Election began today.  Disputes arose early over the first state in question- Arizona- which sent both chambers of Congress to debate the election fraud.  Of course the RINOs and their Democratic Party taskmasters say, ‘NO election fraud occurred’ while the country understands that ‘yes, indeed, loads of fraud did occur and needs to be addressed.’  Even California’s 55 electoral votes are being called into question due to millions of illegal aliens voting.  Finally, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, called for an ‘emergency 10-day audit of the election’ saying BOTH parties should welcome such an audit so their voters accept the election results.
  60. 2021 Wednesday A: Next, as the chambers were debating Arizona’s election results, the crowd marched to the Capitol Building.  Then, a segment of the crowd erupted into violence and stormed the building itself sending lawmakers and their staffs into the basement for security.  We heard of gunshots having occurred inside.  Folks, it is clear that the LEFT is pulling out ALL stops here and have infiltrated the peaceful protesters with Antifa and Black Lives Matter human refuse.  People screaming, “TRUMP WON,” and other things favorable to the president to give the impression it’s his people doing the rioting.  This is straight out of Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” and it’s clear that the Democrats are behind all of this so they can continue the narrative that ‘President Trump is launching a coup.’  What a flipping mess but you must give the Democratic-Socialists credit as they know how to cause mob violence, misdirect blame, and topple elections.  Our country is in trouble.
  61. 2021 Wednesday B: It appears that BOTH Democrats won the Senate races in Georgia: Reverend Raphael Warnock with a count of 2,230,231 (51%) to 2,176,048 (49%) for Senator Kelly Loeffler.  As for Jon Ossoff, numbers show 2,211,603 (50%) votes to 2,194,578 (50%) for Senator David Perdue.  Of course, counting continues but we know the score.   Meanwhile, Georgia Democrat Congressman Vernon Jones says he is going to leave the Dems and become a Republican.
  62. 2021 Wednesday C: Facebook is ordered to pay nearly $5 million in fines for having stolen an Italian app.  Next, Samsung’s profits for the fourth quarter are expected to rise by one-third.  Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms arrest 50-plus pro-democracy activists in Hong Kong following the recent passage of their criminal national security law.  Meanwhile, Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts says workers at meat processing plants will be the next in line to receive the vaccine for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Finally, a UK judge denies WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange bail.

  69. 2021 Wednesday J: Today is the day when we believe all hell is going to break loose in Washington, D.C., as the Electoral College results are certified or not.  Let us hope brave politicians of both parties will fight to keep America free and independent and not a satellite state of the fricking Chi-Coms.

  48. 2018 Friday: “Fire and Fury” by Michael Wolff, a book in which former aide Steve Bannon was quoted as expressing doubts about President Donald J. Trump’s competence hit book store shelves around the globe on this date.  Trump had said on the eve of publication that the book was full of “lies, misrepresentations and sources that don’t exist.”  Still the book sells somewhat moderately causing liberal commentators to claim it’s ‘selling like hotcakes.’  Elsewhere, astronaut John Young, who walked on the moon and later commanded the first space shuttle flight died at his Houston home at age 87.
  49. 2019 Saturday: In the AFC Wildcard Game, the Indianapolis Colts beat the home team, the Houston Texans, 21-7.  Meanwhile, in the NFC Wildcard Game, the home team Dallas Cowboys hold on to a slim lead, 24-22, to beat the visiting Seattle Seahawks.
  50. 2020 Sunday: Following the killing of Iranian POS General Qassim Soleimani in a drone strike, the Iraqi government votes to boot U.S. troops out of their country.  This leads President Trump to threaten them with sanctions.  Speaking of the drone strike that killed Soleimani, left-wing mobs in the U.S. take to the streets screaming, “NO WAR WITH IRAN!”  Pansies.  Meanwhile, U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren, D-Massachusetts, says ‘that Trump is trying to go to war with Iran to distract from impeachment.’
  51. 2020 Sunday A: Elsewhere, in the early NFC Wildcard Game, the Minnesota Vikings stun the New Orleans Saints- the home team- by a score of 26-20.  In the late NFC Wildcard Game, the Seattle Seahawks beat the home team Philadelphia Eagles by a final score of 17-9.  Eagles QB Carson Wentz was knocked out of the game early with a head injury and back up QB Josh McGowan kept them in the game.

Trump.  Meanwhile, founder of the Proud Boys- Enrique Tarrio- is arrested in Washington, D.C. for burning a Black Lives Matter?  WTF?  Once again, fascist Mayor Muriel Bowser could care little to nothing that BLM and Antifa trash burn down all manner of things from buildings to businesses or that they beat people senseless in the streets but a Latino guy burns a BLM banner and goes to jail?  When the bodies start dropping, liberal Democratic-Socialists are going to have only themselves to blame.  Speaking of human garbage, Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, says Antifa trash showed up outside his D.C. home trying to intimidate him by terrorizing his family.  Mayor Bowser: where were the cops?
  53. 2021 Tuesday A: The public absence of Jack Ma fuels speculations that the Chi-Coms are in the midst of a crackdown and repression of its citizens.  Shame on them.  Meanwhile, Representative Lauren Boebert, R-CO, fights to keep her handgun in Washington, D.C. which as she says is ‘her Constitutional right.’  Elsewhere- in a humorous note- the ayatollahs in Iran are seeking the arrest of President Donald J. Trump for having whacked POS Quds Force, aka terrorist leader, Qassim Soleimani a year ago on New Year’s Day.  We still say, “NUKE THEM!”  Speaking of President Trump, the White House is downplaying the report that the day before Inauguration Day- should he lose- he might jet over to his property in Scotland.  Hell, these stupid Democrat f**ks might try to arrest him and hand him over to the Iranians.   Speaking of the Iranians, they are back (they’ve always been) to enriching uranium at 20-percent.  Again, we say, “NUKE THEM!  NOW!  Like we should have nuked the Chi-Coms in 1950.”
  54. 2021 Tuesday B: The police say that the Milwaukee pharmacist who left more than 550 doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine out at room temperature last week did so because he was some kind of ‘conspiracy theorist.’  Okay.  Meanwhile, “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s pick to head the U.S. Treasury- the honorable Janet Yellen, has raked in millions of dollars giving speeches to BIG BANKS.   Elsewhere, federal Judge Katherine Polk Failla in Manhattan blocked the Trump administration from targeting lawyers working for the human rights and war crimes commissions at the Hague.  Leftist lawyers are always trying to send America’s fighting-men-and-women to prison for doing their duty.
  55. 2021 Tuesday C: A Fox 5/Insider Advantage poll now says the two Georgia U.S. Senate run-off races are tied neck and neck.  Yesterday, both Democrats- bigot Reverend Raphael Warnock and Sinophile Jon Ossoff- had four-point leads over their opponents, Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue.   We hear turnout is light although early voting was off the charts.   Elsewhere, we hear that relief checks for the dreaded Chi-Vi, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, aka the Chinese Virus, aka the Kung Flu, aka Yellow Fever 2020, among other names- are going to the wrong addresses.  Sounds like mail-in ballots?
  56. 2021 Tuesday D: Hundreds of thousands of Trump supporters are arriving in Washington, D.C., which has corrupt Mayor Muriel Bowser quaking in her booties.  She has called for help from the National Guard and is urging locals not to get involved with the rioting she suspects will break out when her Antifa and BLM thugs arrive on scene.  Looks like a reckoning is coming.   Question: will the stooges of the Chi-Coms- Antifa and BLM- prevail or will the American people destroy this fetid human filth and their rat-eating masters in Beijing?  That is the question of the day, folks.
  57. 2021 Tuesday E:  The Kenosha, Wisconsin, police officer who shot POS thug Jacob Blake seven times as Blake attempted to enter his vehicle to retrieve a knife will not face any charges for his actions.  Excellent.  Elsewhere, former U.S. Secretary of State and failed presidential candidate (and noted ‘foreign policy expert’) Hillary Rodham Clinton says, ‘President Trump is playing a dangerous game with Iran.’ 
  58. 2021 Tuesday F: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 86,195,556 confirmed cases, +640,281, 1,863,653, confirmed deaths, +13,749, and 48,409,904 confirmed recoveries, +351,879.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 21,174,425 confirmed cases, up 240,879 from yesterday’s reporting, 359,344 confirmed deaths, UP 3,508, and 9,550,165 confirmed recoveries, UP 199,145.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

If a band sticks around long enough, their record companies begin making larger compilations with which to repackage the older music and present it to both the longtime fans and to new listeners.  “The Original Album Series, Volume 1,” contained FIVE classic albums- “The J. Geils Band” (11-16-1970), “The Morning After” (10-02-1971), “Live Full House” (09-26-1972), “Bloodshot,” (04-12-1973), and “Ladies Invited,” (11-09-1973).  At $20 or less, this is a wonderful way by which, an old-time fan or a new listeners can hear some of the absolute best rock music ever to explode out of the East Coast.  Please, seek this album out wherever you can find it- you will be glad you did.

Trump for working against the commander-in-chief.  His replacement- Acting Secretary of Defense Patrick M. Shanahan assumed office on this date.   Meanwhile, loser RINO Senator-elect Mitt Romney says, “Trump has not risen to the mantle of office.’  Like Mittens should know.  He folded like porn star-s overused member back in 2012.
  60. 2020 Wednesday: After a two-day standoff outside the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, Iraq’s Green Zone, Iranian-backed militias withdraw back into the rat holes inside the city.  The pro-Iranian group tried to storm the embassy following devastating U.S.-led airstrikes against terrorist targets in Syria and Iraq.  Light ‘em up, boys, light ‘em up.  Meanwhile, following an airstrike by Syrian government forces in Idlib, Syria, aid workers claim the Syrians hit a school killing nine civilians and wounding loads of others.  Folks, they’re terrorists, shed no tears for terrorists.  Elsewhere, tens of thousands of Hong Kong residents take to the streets to protest Beijing’s oppressive presence and to defend their liberties from the Chi-Coms.   Finally, the strike by French railway workers now is the longest since 1968.
  61. 2021 Friday: Ever the “optimist,” Iranian President Hassan Rouhani says, “Trump will be dead in a few days” as relations between his rat-shit country and the United States continue to deteriorate.  Meanwhile, the Iranians chant ‘DEATH TO AMERICA’ on the one-year anniversary of the whacking of Quds Force commander General Qassim Soleimani.  We say, “NUKE THEM!”  We should nuke the scumbags because once again, they are mining the Persian Gulf as oil tankers leaving Iraq find the explosive devices floating in the sea lanes.
  62. 2021 Friday A: Once again, the Mitch McConnell-led Senate blocks the $2,000 relief checks for the American people.   Here’s the thing that is angering the American people: the COVID-19 Relief Bill directs $174 billion to the American people and $762 billion to various other countries around the world.  This is insane.  What is even worse is that part of the $174 billion for the American people also includes $600 PLUS another $1,200 per illegal alien they did not get in the first stimulus.  The time is coming- so says Chef Vladimir Gdansk- that the Second Revolution coming will resemble more the French Revolution than the American Revolution.  People are angry that government NO LONGER REPRESENTS US!
  63. 2021 Friday B: Speaking of the Chi-Coms, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 83,579,767 confirmed cases, +585,547, 1,820,923, confirmed deaths, +10,563, and 47,162,055 confirmed recoveries, +268,693.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 20,212,820 confirmed cases, up 302,146 from yesterday’s reporting, 349,397 confirmed deaths, UP 4,520, and 9,136,262 confirmed recoveries, UP 379,112.
  64. 2021 Friday C: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 2,307,706 confirmed cases, 25,971 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 21,644 confirmed cases, 288 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 251,064 confirmed cases, 3,523 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Virginia where they have a Ku Klux Klan-lover for a governor: currently, they have 354,766 confirmed cases, 5,081 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 426,769 confirmed cases, 3,338 confirmed deaths, and 378,038 confirmed recoveries.
  65. 2021 Friday D: The E.U. and the Chi-Coms continue working on their ‘deal’ to open markets in the communist nation to European investment.   Next, the Philippines block travel from the U.S. following detection of the new strain of the Chi-Vi in the United States.   Elsewhere, the entire African Continent (26 states as of today with most of the others soon to join)- with the exception of Eritrea- enters into the massive free trade zone it had previously set up making it the largest free trade zone since the creation of the World Trade Organization.  Meanwhile, both the U.S. State Department and the people of Hong Kong demand the release of the so-called “Hong Kong 12,” wrongly imprisoned by the thugs in Beijing.
  66. 2021 Friday E: Georgia voters come out for the final day of early voting in the two U.S. Senate run-off race- 3 million people have early voted so far.  Meanwhile the U.S. Senate overrides President Trump’s veto of the NDAA- the National Defense Authorization Act, patting themselves on the back as they do so.  The president vetoed the bill because it does nothing with the Section 230 the 45th president wanted overturned.  Chef Vladimir Gdansk writes in today’s post how the BIG TECH demon baby should be strangled in the crib now before it becomes so powerful that it is running the world (with the Chi-Coms being the main managing partner behind the scenes). 
  67. 2021 Friday F: Strange things occurring in Colorado what with the discovery of human remains in a pair of suitcases as are other human remains outside Prescott, Arizona.   Elsewhere, even though it’s against the mayor’s demands, the people of Philadelphia turn out to either participate in or to watch the big Philly Mummers parade.  Labeled a ‘protest,’ left-wing liberal government can do NOTHING to stop it.  FREEDOM OF SPEECH- PARDON JULIAN ASSANGE NOW!  Next, Portland, Oregon, police label a ‘protest’ a ‘riot’ when the mob goes berserk as darkness begins to fall.  (We believe the Chi-Coms are funding all of this mob mayhem).
  68. 2021 Friday G: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions #1621 with a $401 million jackpot: 08, 24, 53, 68, 69, and Mega 07.   Out of 186,678 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $11,000 apiece.  Congratulations!
  69. 2021 Friday H:  We encourage everyone to stick around to uncover whatever the Chi-Coms, their allies Canada, Iran, Russia, North Korea, and other s-hole countries, as well as their stooges in the Democratic Party are up to today- you know they’re up to no good! Stick around for tonight’s Mega-Millions…

ENDNOTES:


[i] We look forward to doing the music of this famed funk-rock band.  The Ohio Players are amazing

[ii] We promoted the music of Country Joe and the Fish beginning on Tuesday, 16-July-2013 through Friday, 26-July-2013.  This was one of the greatest bands to explode out of San Francisco, California, during the Psychedelic 1960s.  Sadly, we failed to promote the music of Country Joe McDonald’s solo discography at the time.  We hope to rectify that at a later date.

[iii] We promoted the music of Spooky Tooth, Mott the Hoople, Mott, the British Lions, and Widowmaker- among other interconnected bands beginning on Friday, 25-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We hope you will check out this collection of great rock music.  Even the worst albums among them beats the crap out of any bull crap music one hears today.

[iv] Little would the people of New York City know that this POS far-left, forever-stoned mayor would destroy their city and that come 2020 with the Chi-Com-manufactured pandemic out of control people would flee the dying city.  GET this scumbag out of office!

  61. 2019 Monday: Iraqis are running amok in the streets outside the U.S. embassy in Baghdad following U.S. air strikes that whacked at least 24 members of an Iranian-backed militia which has been causing trouble in Iraq and Syria.   Meanwhile, the feds charge the POS who stabbed five Jews at a Hanukah celebration in New York City with federal hate crimes charges.  The lawyers for Grafton Thomas- the perp- claim he’s mentally ill.
  62. 2020 Wednesday: U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is considering the U.S. designating communist Cuba a state sponsor of terrorism, we believe because of the microwave sonic attacks on our embassy personnel.  The State Department also approves the potential sale of 3,000 smart bombs to Saudi Arabia.  Speaking of the Middle East, B-52 bombers begin flying patrols over the Persian Gulf to put the rat-shit Iranians on their backfoot.  Elsewhere, as things heat up in the two Georgia U.S. Senate run-off races, former President Barack Hussein Obama, and leftist singer/songwriter/performer John Legend team up to make a crappy TV add for ‘Pro-Beijing Jon’ Ossoff.   Regarding these races, leftist commentators are already predicting the results may take weeks to compile.  WTF- it’s a single state.  This should tell everyone shenanigans will be ongoing.  Also, in the Peach State, Governor Brian Kemp- a man whom President Trump helped get elected- says an audit of Fulton County is ‘not his to order.’
  63. 2020 Wednesday A:  On the world front, Argentina- the land from whence comes the worst pontiff in papal history- Pope Francis- passes a bill legalizing abortion.  Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms do TWO things: first, they jail activists in Hong Kong seeking to leave for better living conditions elsewhere with sentences of up to three years in a Chi-Com slammer.  Second, Beijing is demanding that Turkey repatriate Uighur Muslims who escaped western China to be returned to the communist country.  Why?  Answer: to join their fellow Uighurs in the concentration camps.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Beijing and the European Union ink an agreement that will ‘open’ China to Western investors.  What can go wrong with this?
  64. 2020 Wednesday B: In Moscow, President Vladimir Putin signs new laws that prohibit his country to control U.S. social media within his borders.  The laws also allow the Russian government to label individuals as ‘foreign agents’ as well as to prohibit the release of data on Russian intelligence officers.  The laws also allow him to run for two more six-year terms.  Mr. Putin just reestablish the Soviet Union and become dictator for life.  There.  We said it, just do it.
  65. 2020 Wednesday C: The U.S. posts record goods-trade gap ahead of the 2020 holidays.  Meanwhile, Congress creeps closer to overriding President Donald J. Trump’s veto of the $740 billion of the U.S. Defense Policy Bill, all because they won’t strip BIG TECH of its Section 230 protections for platform providers.  The reason the president wants them stripped is because they behave like publishers and must face penalties for their conduct.  Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell blocks the $2,000 COVID-19 relief checks demanded by the president while allowing foreign aid to continue flowing to various countries around the world that hate our guts.  See you in six years, Mitch.  Regarding Mitch, Senator Josh Hawley, R-Mo., says he will stand with GOP House members contesting the fraudulent 2020 Presidential Election.  God bless you, Senator Hawley!  
  66. 2020 Wednesday D: Churches in New Mexico are being fined for holding packed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day sermons.  Meanwhile, GOP Congressman Adam Kinzinger, Illinois 16th congressional district, mocked Missouri Senator Josh Hawley for saying he will ‘object to election results’ on January 6, 2021.  Kinzinger is little more than a RINO in the pocket of the Deep State and Dems.   Speaking of Senator Hawley, apparently some snowflake at corporate headquarters for Wal-Mart tweeted out that the senator is a ‘sore loser’ and made fun of him, too, which led to a quick about face by Wal-Mart who apologized profusely for what their wayward employee did.  Elsewhere, California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom plans to use $2 billion (the state does not have) to reopen elementary schools.  The man took several billion from the gas tax earmarked for road and highway repairs and diverted it to fight Global Warming, fund the high-speed rail snafu, and fund CalPERS.  Finally, the United Nations says that ‘Trump’s pardons for the imprisoned Black Water operators convicted of killing ‘civilians’ in Iraq violates the Geneva Conventions.’
  67. 2020 Wednesday E: The U.S. Census Bureau announces it will miss its deadline which means illegal aliens will most likely be counted in the Census which is not right.  A judge rules that illegal alien families cannot be detained indefinitely.  We say launch Operation Wetback II, load them onto planes, trains, trucks, buses, and run them across the border in Mexico.  If Mexico doesn’t want them, they must stop them from coming.  Meanwhile, pro-illegal alien leftists urge an extension on visa stays for noncitizens in the country while advocates against illegal aliens demand the opposite.
  68. 2020 Wednesday F: Here are the latest stats for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, straight out of the fetid bowels of the world’s lone communist semi-superpower: 82,510,560 confirmed cases, UP by 601,673 cases, 1,800,400 confirmed deaths, UP by 13,563 deaths, and 46,640,066 confirmed recoveries, UP by 368,822 recoveries from yesterday’s figures.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 19,910,674 confirmed cases, UP by 197,630 new cases, 344,877 confirmed deaths, UP by 3,693 new deaths, and 8,757,150 confirmed recoveries, UP by 94,066 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt POSs).  Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 416,584 confirmed cases, 3,307 confirmed deaths, and 372,284 confirmed recoveries.
  69. 2020 Wednesday G: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 2,246,307 confirmed cases, 24,963 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 21,209 confirmed cases, 285 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION OF confirmed recoveries anymore- what is up with YOU, Gov. Ige, you Democrat hack.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 245,750 confirmed cases, 3,433 confirmed deaths, but like California, the gorilla-faced governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, Massachusetts: 367,918 confirmed number of cases, 12,338 confirmed deaths, and sadly, no mention of the confirmed number of recoveries- thank you. Meanwhile, the U.S. demands the release of a Uighur doctor- Gulshan Abbas- the communist Chinese have given a 20-year stretch in a Chi-Com prison because of the human rights activities of his family in the United States.
  70. 2020 Wednesday H:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,409.56, UP 73.89 points (+0.24%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,870.00, UP 19.78 points (+0.15%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,732.04, UP 5.00 points (+0.04%).  The price of GOLD is $1,900.00 per troy oz., +6.80 (+0.35%) while the price of SILVER is $26.74 per troy ounce, +0.167 (+0.63%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,072.60 per troy oz, +15.80 (+1.50%) while the price of COPPER is $3.55 per pound, +0.005 (+0.14%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,378.40 per troy oz, +34.10 (+1.45%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $48.26 per barrel, -0.14 (-0.29%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.52 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.81 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.88.
  71. 2020 Wednesday I: Girls Scouts USA call on their bakers to address issues of child labor abroad in two Third World countries where young children harvest ingredients the bakers contract to use in their cookie products: Malaysia and Indonesia.  Why don’t we grow and harvest products used in American food items here in the United States?  We do have tropical climates not only on the U.S. mainland but in Hawaii and in other U.S. territories in the Pacific Region.   Elsewhere, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp pushes back on President Donald J. Trump’s demand for his resignation: ‘Mind your own business.’  Elsewhere, John Paul Mac Isaac, proprietor the computer shop where Hunter Biden left his now infamous laptops for repairs says he ‘never had any intentions of changing the 2020 Presidential Election.  Finally, Alaska Airlines becomes the first major airline to ban ‘emotional support animals.’
  72. 2020 Wednesday J: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Super Lotto Draw #3521 with a jackpot of $7 million up for grabs: 27, 30, 37, 42, 46, and Mega 19.  The highest winners were NINE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $1,757 apiece.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #807 with a massive $363 million jackpot at stake: 03, 43, 45, 61, 65, and Powerball 14.  Out of 131,167 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who got FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $36,491 apiece.  God bless ‘em!
  73. 2020 Wednesday K: We invite everyone to stick around to discover whatever the Chi-Coms and their flunkies in the Democratic Party are up to today- you know they’re up to no good.  We want all of you to discover their misdeeds and crimes along with us…

[v] We look forward to doing the Clash but expect to do Supertramp first, then Pink Floyd, then Electric Light Orchestra/the Move, then Yes, and then perhaps the Clash.  They are among the amazing British rock bands of the 1970s and deserve to be acknowledged as such.

U. 1942 Thursday: The Red Army occupies German airports at Tasjinskaja and Morozowsk outside of Stalingrad on this date during World War II, which severely limits the ability of the Axis forces to resupply the beleaguered command. Across the Mishkova River, the 6th Panzer Division begins withdrawing back to the western side of the frozen body of water. This would seal the fate of the Sixth Army, soon to be entombed in the city. More men were dying- 1,280 today alone- from frostbite, starvation, disease, and by their own hand. The German army had not lost on this scale ever before although the year prior, the Red Army was able to push them back from their capital.

  49. 2015 Thursday: Human Rights Watch reports that Nigerian soldiers quickly buried the bodies of about 300 Shia Muslims killed during a raid on a home owned by jihadist Ibrahim Zakzaky.  Ah, well, stuff happens.

  51. 2017 Sunday: Israel currently is in talks with 10 countries to see if they will also move their embassies to Jerusalem as the United States is doing.   Due to threats of violence by anti-Semites around the world, the Israeli government is not naming names although news reports suggest that both Honduras and Guatemala may because they voted in support of the U.S. move in the United Nations.

  53. 2019 Tuesday: Following the release of ‘explosive emails’ regarding the phone call between President Donald J. Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, the Democrats in the Senate are demanding ‘impeachment witnesses.’  This din of demands for witnesses will reach a cacophony over the next couple of weeks as the Democrats want the Senate to do the job they were unable to do: find evidence of wrongdoing by President Trump.  Meanwhile, President Trump blasts the cruel treatment of Roger Stone and Gen. Mike Flynn and dodges questions as to whether he will pardon them or he won’t.
  54. 2020 Thursday: As if restaurant workers already don’t have enough problems, the Labor Department is considering a law that will force tip employees- as long as they make minimum wage which they have since the 1980s- share their tips with the BACK OF THE HOUSE EMPLOYEES.  This is crazy, they already MUST declare their tips as part of their wages which has cost tip workers loads of money but now, this is even more insane.  This cannot happen.  Where is that dingbat, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez? 
  55. 2020 Thursday A: Black pastors condemn Senator Kelly Loeffler’s attacks on the ‘Reverend’ Raphael Warnock as an attack on the ‘BLACK CHURCH.’  It’s not an attack on the ‘Black Church,’ it’s an attack on a Marxist.  Are black churches “Marxist?”   Regarding the two Senate run-off races in Georgia, “Pro-China Joe” Biden says he ‘won’t name anymore Cabinet picks until January.”  He is afraid that if he continues naming leftists, people will vote GOP- which we hope they do.
  56. 2020 Thursday B: A recent USA poll says that ’50 percent of Americans see President Donald J. Trump as a failed president.’  This means that 50-percent of Americans see him as ‘successful.’  (He also is considering a special counsel to look into 2020).  Speaking of Fake News outlets, Fox News Channel ratings have dropped an astounding 30-percent.  Wow.  We’re surprised that that’s all.  Another poll down in Georgia says, ‘women voters are split among the senatorial candidates.’  Why?  Warnock is an angry black communist and Jon Ossoff is a pro-Chi-Com closet queen.  Neither of these two should appeal to any woman worth her salt.  
  57. 2020 Thursday C: The GOP says, “NO” to President Trump’s demands for $2,000 stimulus checks for each American instead of giving money to foreign countries and the despicable illegal aliens raping our country.  What’s up with this, Republicans?  Meanwhile, newly pardoned Roger Stone rebukes the ‘Soviet-style show trials’ conducted by the Democrats and their hirelings on the courts.  Look at what they’ve done to the patriots who served the 45th president like Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn, Ret. U.S. Army.  It was criminal what they’ve done to him.  Even better, Roger Stone plans on suing the FBI, James Comey, Bill Barr, Robert Mueller III, and his gang of hacks, as well as the Department of Justice.  You go, Roger, you go!
  58. 2020 Thursday D: The Kremlin says new U.S. sanctions could complicate Nord Stream 2’s completion.  Ah, well.  CISA (Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency) say that the hacks of the SolarWinds digital security provider are affecting state and local governments the most.  Many believe Russia’s cyber attacks must be viewed as nuclear strikes.  Let’s light those backwards M-F’ers up.  Speaking of Russia’s boss, communist China, the Chi-Coms are launching an antitrust suit against THEIR company, Alibaba.  Curious.  Elsewhere, Great Britain and the European Union finally reach agreement on Brexit.  About time.
  59. 2020 Thursday E: Christine Mohr, former canine officer in Maryland’s Prince George County publicly thanked President Donald J. Trump for her full pardon.  Following an incident in 1995 when her police dog bit a burglary suspect, she received a 10-year prison sentence over a ‘civil rights violation’ when her dog bit the punk.  What the f**k is wrong in this country when cops are sent to prison over stupid-assed shit?  Elsewhere, Wall Street executives are fleeing New York City for south Florida for its weather and its low taxes.  Go figure.  Meanwhile, Maryland authorities investigate the explosion that occurred yesterday at the Baltimore Gas and Electric building that toppled the roof and sent 21 people to the hospital.
  60. 2020 Thursday F: South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem says she ‘won’t primary’ RINO Republican Senator Jon Thune in 2022.  Meanwhile, Representative Ted Budd, R-NC, joins the GOP-led effort to REJECT the 2020 Presidential Election’s Electoral College votes due to the rampant voter fraud and corruption exhibited by elected officials.  Excellent.   Elsewhere, Democrat Congressman Rick Larsen of Washington state becomes the latest politician infected with the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Hydroxychloroquine works extremely well, sir.  Speaking of the Chi-Com Fever, the Russians claim- get this- that while they were working on the so-called ‘Sputnik vaccine’ to use against their Chi-Com masters’ lab-engineered pandemic, they also have a prototype vaccine for HIV-AIDS.  Who wants to be first in line for that crap?   
  61. 2020 Thursday G: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Yellow Fever, Chi-Com Virus, the Wuhan Horseshoe Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 79,226,905 confirmed cases, +755,130, 1,739,456, confirmed deaths, +13,497, and 44,628,688 confirmed recoveries, +408,889 (same number as reported a week ago).  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 18,829,110 confirmed cases, UP 220,038 from yesterday’s reporting, 332,145 confirmed deaths, UP 2,973, and 8,270,113 confirmed recoveries, UP 44,542.  Here are the stats for Israel now that Mo is living there: 389,502 confirmed cases, 3,170 confirmed deaths, and 354,616 confirmed recoveries.
  62. 2020 Thursday H: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous, anti-communist American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 2,012,960 confirmed cases, 23,635 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 20,749 confirmed cases, 285 confirmed deaths, and as of last week, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 234,832 confirmed cases, 3,245 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Wisconsin- currently, they have 500,443 confirmed cases, 4,956 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Tony Evers- leftwing POS.
  63. 2020 Thursday I: Due to all the people becoming ill with the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- the Pelosi Pox, nurses are sending out an SOS for additional help.  They are being overrun at the moment.  Meanwhile, much of continental Europe as well as the Empire State are closing off air travel from Great Britain (and some are closing off travel from South Africa) due to the new strain of the Wuhan Virus Crisis that is now running amok in the UK.  Although said NOT to be as lethal as the original strain of COVID-19, it is highly more contagious which means more people sickened requiring greater resources.  SOMEONE TELL US THAT THE CHI-COMS DID NOT DO THIS ON PURPOSE!  Stop bitching about Russia, the country to nuke is communist China NOW (or infect them with one of our own biowarfare agents).  Meanwhile, as leftists in the United States are urging minorities to receive the virus before whites as some sort of sick form or reparations, Chef Bea O’Malley of the AICPENDBLOG.COM says, “We’ve been down this road before.  When white people are telling black people they need to take some medication, it’s time to watch the heck out because we’ve been there, done that, and it never works out well for us.”  Amen, Bea, amen.
  64. 2020 Wednesday J: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,199.87, UP 70.04 points (+0.23%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,804.73, UP 33.62 points (+0.26%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,703.06, UP 13.05 points (+0.35%).  The price of GOLD is $1,882.60 per troy oz., -0.60 (-0.02%) while the price of SILVER is $25.94 per troy ounce, +0.037 (+0.14%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,027.20 per troy oz, -1.70 (-0.17%) while the price of COPPER is $3.57 per pound, +0.009 (+0.25%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,339.10 per troy oz, +16.00 (+0.69%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $48.30 per barrel, +0.07 (+0.15%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.53 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.86.  On Christmas Eve, let’s have some fun- one-dollar U.S. = 73.86 Russian Rubles. 
  65. 2020 Thursday K: NO Thursday Night NFL game tonight.  The game will be played tomorrow at 1:30 P.M. on Christmas Day- (1) Minnesota Vikings (6-8) @ New Orleans Saints (10-4).
