Gen. Michael Flynn case- Judge Emmet Sullivan- refuses to let the case go even after the U.S. Department of Justice said it’s not going to prosecute this case.  This is what is wrong in the United States, we have dictatorial judges who need to be impeached and removed from office.  Perhaps when the GOP controls both houses of Congress in January 2021?

  86. 2021 Thursday F: Foreign News / Overseas News– After Hamas has launched more than 1,500 rockets into civilian areas within Israel since Monday, it would appear that Israeli ground and air assets are crossing the border into the hellhole known as Gaza.  Moses Scharbug III, aka Mo- who now lives in Israel- says that it is a clash between civilization and darkness, a clash between light and barbarism and that the Israelis must crush these animalistic scum with every weapon possessed in their arsenal.  We all tend to agree.  Send these cockroaches howling into 1,000 years of darkness, naked and devastated.  The Israeli ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer says that ‘Hamas must be taught a lesson that it cannot murder Israelis with impunity.’  Amen.  We say, ‘use neutron bombs and eliminate these rats.’   
  87. 2021 Thursday G: Political News I– While Israel fights for its very survival, Anti-Semitic scum such as Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DS-MN 5th congressional district, and Rep. Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, DS-MI 13th congressional district, are more or less calling for her destruction by not providing her support in her hour of need.  As Mo says, ‘NO matter what the Democratic-Socialists say, God gave the land encompassed by Israel to Moses more than 2,000 years ago.  It was the homeland of the Jews and the only reason it was not because first the Romans and then the Muslims drove them off the land.  If one wants to talk about the ‘right of return,’ Jews have the first and ONLY right of return.’  Could not say it better ourselves.   Regarding these two Islamist congresswomen, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, confronted the head of the ‘suicide squad,’ Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez aka AOC aka Baby Evita aka Sandy Cortez (birth name), DS-NY 14th congressional district, and called her out over her support for ‘terrorists.’  
  88. 2021 Thursday H: Business News– The Biden Regime is doing a lot of chest-thumping over the fact that last week ONLY 473,000 new jobless claims were filed.  What they neglect to say is that there are 8,000,000 unfilled in jobs in the U.S., jobs that are NOT being filled because of the Biden’s regime edict that the unemployed receive MORE money sitting at home in their skivvies than they would if they were on the job.  (Note- we believe the Biden regime is doing this so as to whine in a few weeks that ‘to fill these empty jobs, illegal aliens will have to do the work Americans are unwilling to do.’  We’ve heard this tune before.
  89. 2021 Thursday I: Joe Biden Regime News I– Joe Biden’s $86 billion pension bailout plan is set to boost corporate bonds.  In related news, a House panel is backing a bill that will spend $8 billion to shift the United States Postal Service from gas-fueled vehicles to electric vehicles.  (Note- fascinating how coincidental the shutdown of the Colonial Pipeline running through 17 states and now the Dems are pushing for more electric vehicles than ever.  You realize that once everyone has EVs, they will be restricted to a certain radius because of charging station availability, the length of the charge, as well as the fact that electric cars are far more expensive, batteries harder to dispose of due to their toxicity, and the eventual pushing of everyone out of electric vehicles to public transit in much the same way we have Ubers).[xx]   
  90. 2021 Thursday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– As the Arizona state senate continues its investigation into the fraudulent 2020 Elections, investigators announce that the Maricopa County election officials WIPED the voting machines’ memories.  Here again is yet another reason as to why millions of Americans continue to believe that what happened in the days following November 03 were not legit.  And still, the Democrats continue crying and sniveling that anyone questioning the results of the 2020 Election is somehow a backwoods goober.  (Note- the evidence continues piling up by the day that November 03, 2020, was the worst example of elections fraud in the history of our great nation).
  91. 2021 Thursday K: Miscellaneous News I– Democrats are seeking a ban on military weapons making their way into the hands of local police departments.   Next, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov has hired criminal defense attorneys without saying if HE is paying for them or the Empire State will.  (Note- our bet is on the taxpayers of New York).  Speaking of worthless governors, Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom, DS-CA, says he will ‘END the mask mandate on June 15.’  (Note- too late, there ‘Smiler;’ no matter what you do, WE are recalling you).  Elsewhere, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, is trying to fight off potential challengers as she seeks to become the No. 3 in the GOP House leadership.  (Note- most of us would like to seen Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, or Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district, get the job).
  92. 2022 Friday: You know the drill…

  64. 2020 Tuesday G: The population of Hawaii declines for the fourth straight year in a row.  Elsewhere, Spain announces it is going to establish a list of those who refuse to take the COVID-19 vaccines as a way of isolating them from society.  And there are those who scoff at the idea of the ‘Mark of the Beast.’  Speaking of the Chi-Vi vaccine, ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden pledges a swifter roll-out of the Beijing Bat Flu vaccine as soon as he enters office.  Is he, too, considering a registry of those who say, “F**k the vaccine?”  In this world, we just don’t know.  Meanwhile, always-wrong Dr. Tony Fauci says, “I’ve never thought about running for office.”  Good.  Don’t.  Regarding Dr. Fauci- ever the ‘optimist,’ he says prepare for a worse January regarding the Kung Flu.  Yikes.
  65. 2020 Tuesday H: “Incoming national security adviser” Jake Sullivan under ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe” Biden is whining that the Pentagon is NOT meeting with them.  Elsewhere, a lawsuit charges the Hawaiian Sweet Bread Company with not being ‘Hawaiian enough.’  Next, the cops involved in the Breonna Taylor case have now all been fired.  Meanwhile, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms is on her backfoot due to the massive increase in shootings in the once lovely city including the recent death of a seven-year-old girl.  People- stop with the Defund the Police bull crap.  It’s stupid.
  66. 2020 Tuesday I: Here are tonight’s Mega Millions #1620 Drawing with a $376,000,000 jackpot up for grabs: 01, 31, 35, 48, 62, and Mega 19.  Out of 138,376 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $36,629.
  67. 2020 Tuesday J: Luke Letlow, incoming GOP congressman-elect from Louisiana dies at age 41, a victim of the Beijing Bat Bug.  He became ill last week, went to the hospital, became well enough to return home, then worsened and had to return to the hospital where he died.  Why didn’t they provide him with hydroxychloroquine?
  68. 2020 Tuesday:  You know as well as we do that the Democratic stooges are fast at work terrifying the GOP into folding on Trump and the 2020 Electoral College confirmation coming up on January 6, 2021.  Their Chi-Com backers are urging them on, so we encourage everyone to stick around to discover what the heck they’re up to…
  69. 2021 Wednesday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Richard Thompson released his next studio album, “The Old Kit Bag,” on February 10, 2003.  Once again, the legendary guitarist delivered the goods which music critics consider to be among his best works yet did not fare well in the stores.  Grunge was exploding all over the place and it was difficult for old-timers to remain current yet in our eyes, Mr. Thompson is ALWAYS current no matter what anyone else thinks.  Joining the smoking hot guitarist/vocalist are (1) Michael Jerome (drums, percussion); (2) Danny Thompson (bass); and (3) Judith Owen (vocals).  For some, Thompson is an acquired taste and for loads of others, his music is always a joy to behold.  We hope you will investigate this one to your hearts’- and ears’- content.  We think you will be glad you did.
