  47. 2016 Friday: Harper Lee- the author of “To Kill a Mockingbird,” died at age 89.  Elsewhere, the ‘so-called religion of peace’- Islam- strikes yet again as suicide bombers in northern Cameroon blow up at least 24 people and wound another 112 at an outdoor market.  What the f**k is wrong with Boko Haram.  Meanwhile, Israeli police are forced to shoot and kill three Palestinian jihadists in Jerusalem and the West Bank.
  48. 2017 Sunday: American jazz guitarist Larry Coryell dies at age 73.  Elsewhere in Iraq, Iraqi troops- backed by the U.S.- are fighting their way into western Mosul to drive the ISIS thugs out of the city.  Meanwhile, new Department of Homeland Security Director John Kelly signs a mass deportation order which causes Democrats to go insane.  They love their illegal aliens.

  50. 2019 Tuesday: Sen. Bernie Sanders confirms he is going to run for president of the United States a second time.  Meanwhile, President Trump announces plans to elevate U.S. Secretary of Transportation Jeffrey Rosen as deputy head of the U.S. Department of Justice.  Next, President Trump signs the order to create the U.S. Space Force, the newest branch of government that will prepare to defend the nation’s interests in the realm of space.
  51. 2020 Wednesday: Information appears that proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that multi-billionaire Michael “Mini-Mike” Bloomberg is indeed doing everything imaginable to buy the Democratic Party’s 2020 presidential nomination.  As of today, he has spent more than $400 million on network and cable TV channels as well as on radio.  What he has spent on Internet advertising is so far unknown.  Tonight, six candidates face off in the Democratic 2020 Primary Debate on NBC: Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar, and former Mayor Bloomberg.  Absent are billionaire Tom Steyer and of course, Tulsi Gabbard, whom the Democrats do NOT want.  Meanwhile, in Chicago, former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich gives a news conference on the porch of his home.  His sentence commuted to time served the day before by President Donald J. Trump, he proclaims himself a “Trump-o-Crat” and pledges to work to help others who have been unjustly punished by the Comey-led FBI.  Good for you, Mr. Governor, good for you.  Finally, President Donald Trump visits the city of Bakersfield, home of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day.
  52. 2021 Friday: Day 31 of the Biden Regime: first of all- due to growing pushback on both sides of the aisle- Joe Biden acknowledges the $15 per hour minimum wage hike may not happen anytime soon.   Next, the House Democrats demonstrate how much they hate President Donald J. Trump by their creation of a new bill- the “No Glory for Hate Act”- which will prohibit twice-impeached presidents from being celebrated, buried in Arlington National Cemetery, or having monuments and roads and the like named after them.  Wow.  Elsewhere, as the investigators investigate the Capitol Hill police officers, six of them are suspended with pay while another 35 are being scrutinized for having affiliations to President Donald J. Trump.  Kool-Aid-guzzling U.S. Army General Russell L. Honoré Ret. And chief inquisitor of the Antifa-infiltrated- and- lead Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021 is digging posthaste to uncover the evildoers behind the appalling assault on Capitol Hill, only he’s looking at those with MAGA sympathies and not at the real instigators and proponents of what happened on the dark day when Antifa and Black Lives Matter stormed the Capitol. 
  53. 2021 Friday A: Climate ‘czar’ John F. Kerry vows tough stance on all climate evildoers in the U.S. as the United States rejoins the Paris Climate Accord, yet another selling out of the United States to globalists.   Meanwhile, in the ‘post-COVID-19 world,’ the TSA announces plans to hire another 6,000 agents so the liberals can increase the numbers of their secret police at all airports across the nation.  Man, that Chi-Vi is permitting our government to skip down the totalitarian path.  Elsewhere, in the Free World of Florida, Governor Ron DeSantis, Republican, proposes sweeping election reforms in his state.   Finally, the Minneapolis Police Department are beefing up security both at the courthouse and around the city as the Derek Chauvin trial looms on the horizon. 
  54. 2021 Friday B: Boko Haram thugs in Niger kidnap 27 students from a boarding school and carry them off into the jungle.  The SOBS must be short on wives, again.  Next, the Kremlin warns the West to pull back from sanctions related to Alexei Navalny’s prison sentence, ‘or else.’  Speaking of thugs, the ‘paradise of Iran’ demands the U.S. repeal and remove ALL sanctions on their country imposed by President Donald J. Trump.  Don’t worry, grand ayatollah, the U.S. is going to rejoin the flawed nuclear deal the Obama-Biden administration participated in with your country.  Speaking of this deal, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blasts the Biden-Harris administration for reentering this deal.  Under President Trump, the Iranians were on their knees begging for mercy.  Now, it’s back to business as usual. 
  55. 2021 Friday C: Meanwhile, the U.S. State Department imposes travel sanctions on 43 Belorussian officials and bigwigs over the actions of their corrupt government.  The Biden administration loves Iran but wants to punish Russia and Belorussia.  WTF?  Next, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is attempting to rally ‘quad democracies’ to pushback against a belligerent communist China.  Why?  The Biden Family and many members of his administration LOVE the Chi-Coms.  Must be just for show.
  56. 2021 Friday D: RINO Senator Jon Thune says the ‘GOP is engaging in ‘cancel culture’ by going after the losers who voted to impeach President Donald J. Trump as well as the RINO senators who voted to convict President Donald J. Trump.’  Will these losers ever learn their flipping lessons?  It appears not.  The American people will have to show them.  Meanwhile, the U.S. begins admitting the first batch of illegal aliens begging for asylum into the country even though south Texas mayors are begging the federal government not to do this because they have no support they can provide them.  Let ‘em freeze.   Elsewhere, the feds are pushing to kick the National Rifle Association’s top lawyer off the bankruptcy case.   Finally, good citizens are working alongside police in Oakland’s Chinatown to catch the thug or thugs who have been attacking Chinese citizens.  We still suspect when the culprit is caught, it will be another minority.  Speaking of the Chinese, Great Britain is welcoming in thousands of Hong Kong’s citizens who are escaping the crackdown by the thugs in Beijing.  In the next five years, London could welcome in as many as 300,000 people along with their dependents.
  57. 2021 Friday E: ERCOT says the catastrophic collapse of the power grid in Texas which led to massive blackouts would have occurred anyway even without the severe weather storm.  Still, the operators have gotten the power system up-and-running.  What the heck has happened to nuclear energy?  It’s safe, reliable, cheap, and lasts forever.  All we need do is to find a way to recycle used nuclear fuel so we can reuse it.   Elsewhere, Dolly Parton nixes the idea of putting a statue dedicated to her in the Tennessee State Capitol Building.  Who would want such an honor in this world of left-wing pansy cancel culture?  Revered today, torn down and defaced tomorrow.  Finally, doctors at Johns Hopkins University say ‘herd immunity for the Chi-Com Flu can be achieved by April 2021.’
  58. 2021 Friday F: We learn that the Wuhan Institute of Virology has received U.S. money to study dangerous diseases including the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Speaking of the Chinese Virus, millions of vaccines for this lab-engineered malady continue to linger in freezer facilities across the country.  Joe Biden says ‘NO such vaccine existed when he came into office’ but we know that a man who asks his wife, ‘where we’re at’ every day he awakens in the White House residence does not know very much, including that he and his wife received their vaccines ahead of his taking the oath of office.  Speaking of the Chi-Com pandemic, the Baby Evita- aka AOC, aka Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Sandy Cortez (birth name) is jumping on the anti-Andrew “Killer” Cuomo bandwagon and much like NYC Mayor Bill Di Blasio, driving the dagger into the beleaguered Empire State governor.   Wow.  Just like piranha fish.
  59. 2021 Friday G: The American Civil Liberties Union asks SCOTUS to declare all-male draft ‘unconstitutional.’  Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian files for divorce from entertainment mogul Kanye West.  Next, a day after its passage, a federal court strikes down South Carolina’s abortion bill, one that prohibits abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected.  The bill is designed to prohibit abortion chop shops such as Planned Parenthood from operating in minority communities where they murder mostly minority unborn children, sell the fetal body parts to scientists, Satanists, and other sick f**ks, and then donate money back to the Democratic Socialist Party of the United States.  WTF?  Meanwhile, Representative Mark Green says, ‘the Biden immigration plan is pretty flipping crazy.’  Amen.  Illegal alien hunting licenses, anyone?  Next, Representative Blaine Luetkemeyer, R-MO., to Newsmax TV: “Follow the Trump template to restore the economy.”   Finally, following Nikki Haley’s failed attempt to meet with President Donald J. Trump at Mar-A-Lago after BLASTING the 45th president and the man who made her ambassador to the United Nations, Senator Lindsey Graham has embarked on a peace mission to see the president.  Interesting Note- Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has ordered all flags to fly at half-mast for Rush Limbaugh.
  60. 2021 Friday H: Here are the numbers for the COVID-19 global pandemic, the planet first: 109,901,931 confirmed cases, +288,143, 2,430,096, confirmed deaths, +8,615, and 61,879,542 confirmed recoveries, +203,850.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 28,100,922 confirmed cases, up 70,592 from yesterday’s reporting, 495,180 confirmed deaths, UP 2,253, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries same as it’s been since ‘Pro-China Joe’ moved into the White House.  NOTE- in the White House 31 DAYS, apparently the U.S. will NO longer report the number of recoveries.  Shame on you, Chi-Com Joe.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 168,862 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Fellow Americans, JOE BIDEN LIED AND PEOPLE HAVE DIED.
  61. 2021 Friday 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: 3,514,246 confirmed cases, 48,411 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,460 confirmed cases, 428 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 335,340 confirmed cases, 4,868 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the United States: South Carolina- currently, they have 497,937 confirmed cases, 8,213 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 741,934 confirmed cases, 5,509 confirmed deaths, and 688,184 confirmed recoveries.     
  62. 2021 Friday J: For a laugh, let’s look at the Chi-Coms’ numbers- they say they have 89,816 cases, +10 from last week, 4,636 confirmed deaths (same as two weeks ago), and 84,696 confirmed recoveries, +46 from last week.  This, of course, is ALL BULLS**T.  When we had contacts in Hong Kong, they said ‘times the numbers by 100, 150, or 200 times and you would get a somewhat closer picture.’  Maggot-eating scum.   NOTE- communists lie.  They ALWAYS LIE.  They lie about everything.  They cover up dastardly deeds like that POS moronic New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo and when threatened with exposure, they begin making threats.  Scumbags, all of them scumbags.
  63. 2021 Friday K:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,494.32, UP 0.98 points (+0.003%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,874.46, UP 9.11 points (+0.066%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,906.71, DOWN 7.26 points (-0.19%).  Although stocks are jumping up and down, we still anticipate the collapse of the U.S. economy as long as (1) businesses don’t reopen in BLUE states; (2) Joe Biden allows the Third World to flood into the United States; (3) economic idiots are running the show in the ‘Biden administration;’ and (4) fossil fuel production is collapsing thanks to Green New Deal policies being implemented by the frigging Democratic-Socialists.
  64. 2021 Friday J: The price of GOLD is $1,783.10 per troy oz., +5.70 (+0.32%) while the price of SILVER is $27.37 per troy ounce, +0.12 (+0.43%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,282.20 per troy oz, -10.90 (-0.84%) while the price of COPPER is $4.07 per pound, -0.01 (-0.17%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,379.80 per troy oz, +21.00 (+0.89%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $59.01 per barrel, -0.23 (-0.39%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros while one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.  One-dollar U.S. = 0.000018 Bitcoin.  Next, one U.S. greenback = 73.95 Russian rubles.  In contrast, one Washington dollar equals 3.75 Saudi Riyal.  Stay tuned for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1635 with a $20 million pot up for grabs. Here are the numbers- 27, 32, 47, 50, 53, and Mega 04.  Out of 52,450 winning tickets, the highest winners were 36 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $421 apiece.

The next live album put out by UFO, “TNT- Live in Texas 1979’ came out on April 05, 1994 and features a hard-rocking set by the legendary British rockers while on tour in Texas.  The lineup featured Phil Mogg (vocals), Andy Parker (drums), Paul Chapman (guitars), Pete Way (bass), and Paul Raymond (keyboards/rhythm guitar) which is a glorious lineup.  Sure, fans love Michael Schenker as who doesn’t but Chapman was a superb replacement for the fiery German axman.  We hope you will seek this album out and consider making it a part of your collection, you will be so glad to own it.  Your friends will flock to your house to join in a listening session and if you have amp-like speakers in your home, turn the volume way up and rock out.  We guarantee you will love it…

TODAY IN HISTORY, FRIDAY FEBRUARY 19, 2021

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

Friday, February 19, 2021:

ENDNOTES:


[i] We promoted the music of the great California rock band, Spirit- and the music of its members- beginning on Monday, 18-June-2012 through Friday, 10-August-2012.  We hope you will seek this band out and add it to your growing collection of top-quality rock music. This included the music of Jo Jo Gunne.

[ii] Not sure when we present this Canadian rock band, Loverboy, but we sure as heck hope we do sometime within the next decade because- say what you will about them- they are as exciting today as they were back in the 1980s.  Please remain vigilant for the day that we do.

[iii] Not exactly sure when we will begin promoting the music of Black Sabbath but when we do we will definitely follow them with AC/DC, the wild and wooly and definitely demonic Australian rock band.

[iv] We expect to do the music of Jethro Tull, Wild Turkey, Ian Anderson, and Paris sometime in the next 5-6 years.  We hope you will still be with us.

[v] We began promoting the music of not only Traffic but also the Spencer Davis Group, Steve Winwood, Chris Wood, Jim Capaldi, and Dave Mason.  The presentation commenced on Monday, 30-November-2015 through Sunday, 20-March-2016.  This offering also included Blind Faith.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.

[vi] The music of this famed British band, Family as well as the spin-off group, Streetwalkers, appeared on Tuesday, 08-October-2013 through Thursday, 31-October-2013.  Sadly, at the time, we failed to promote the music of both Axis Point as well as Roger Chapman’s solo catalog so we hope to correct those mistakes sometime within the next five years.

[vii] We began celebrating the music of Wishbone Ash beginning on Sunday, October 28, 2018 and continued it through Sunday, January 06, 2019.  From there, we covered the music of Martin Turner’s Wishbone Ash beginning on January 07, 2019 through Sunday, January 13, 2019.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection of the BEST rock-and-roll music.  You will be glad you did.

[viii] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  On Tuesday, 18-January-2011, we promoted the album, “Rumours.”  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates.  We thank you.

  53. 2016 Sunday: As fighting continues to rage in Yemen, Saudi warplanes intercept an Iranian-made SCUD missile in its airspace.  This isn’t the first one, this has been going on for awhile now with Iranians attempting to attack Saudi territory as they continue to support their proxies, the Houthi rebels.   Elsewhere, as Middle Eastern ‘refugees’ continue flooding into Eastern Europe, Slovenia says it’s going to restrict the number of Muslim refugees to whom it permits entry.  Who can blame them?
  54. 2017 Tuesday: The United States sanctions Venezuela’s Vice President Tareck El-Aissami, accusing him of being a narcotrafficker and which allows the U.S. government to freeze his assets in the U.S. and to prevent his entry into the U.S.  Where the heck did the Venezuelans find a Muslim guy to be the number two under Nicolas Maduro.

  56. 2019 Thursday: Acting U.S. Attorney General Matthew Whitaker stepped down from his post today as the 85th Attorney General William “Bill” Barr assumed the post.

Trump for ‘obstruction of justice’ following the president’s dismissal of McCabe’s former boss, former

Michael Flynn.  Elsewhere, Egypt has the ignominy to report the first case of the Chinese Virus on the African continent.  The COVID-19 Bat Flu is spreading like wildfire.
  58. 2021 Sunday: First of all, following his one week suspension without pay by White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki, misogynist and bully Deputy Press Secretary T.J. Ducklo offers his resignation.  Good riddance.  Speaking of the ‘Biden administration,’ progressives are demanding the ‘Biden Justice Department’ pursue now acquitted not once but twice Donald J. Trump.  We surmise the reason for this is (1) because they hate the former president; (2) angry as hell (all the time); (3) have no clue as to how to push their agenda (which very few want); and (4) are mostly crazy, loony, feeble, or plain stupid so they need someone upon whom to divert attention away from them and onto the target.   Folks, we make a bold prediction: this administration- one that ‘won’ via questionable circumstances- is going to crash and burn far sooner than even they believe and are going to become a laughing stock not just here in our country but around the world.  Speaking of Mr. Trump’s victory, his impeachment lawyers said, “We’re going to Disney World!”  Have a great time!
  59. 2021 Sunday A: The Biden White House warns Vice President Kamala Harris’ niece- Meena Harris- to stop linking her personal brand to the sitting vice president.  This is wrong so they are prohibiting (other than for Hunter Biden and his uncles and aunts- they’re okay).   Speaking of Vice President Harris, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, says based upon the precedent the reprobate Democrats set in the SECOND UNWARRANTED IMPEACHMENT OF THE 45th PRESIDENT, once the GOP retakes the House of Representatives and reclaims the Senate (hopefully without keeping “Mitch the Maggot” McConnell in a position of leadership- he has to go) because she has said and done things that qualify her for kangaroo court impeachment.  So, too, does enfeebled old Joe- send him packing.   Meanwhile, recent in polls in California show that not only is dimwit Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom and Los Angeles Mayor Eric “Keep Everything Locked Down” Garcetti, but also Senator Dianne Feinstein’s approval ratings have hit their lowest mark ever- down in the thirties.  Poor Di-Fi.  What do all three have in common?  They’re Democrats.
  60. 2021 Sunday B: In the glorious metropolis of New York City, after four stabbings in the subway of homeless people- two of whom died- forever-wasted Mayor Bill Di Blasio, Democrat, has sent 500 members of the NYPD into the underground tunnels to keep order.  Now, they NEED the cops.  Wow.  Speaking of NYC, we learn that mayoral candidate Andrew Yang, failed presidential primary candidate, has a campaign manager with close ties to jihadist/activist Linda Sarsour.  This should disqualify Mr. Yang as of YESTERDAY.  Speaking of Anti-Semites, since Joe Biden ‘won’ on November 6, 2020, he has had phone calls with 10 world leaders (or whoever’s in his earpiece has)- including the Chi-Coms (who own him), Russia, and others- BUT NOT with Israel.  Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reached out early to Mr. Biden but so far, the ‘Biden administration’ has not responded.  This is NOT good.  Israel is our number one ally in the region but the Anti-Semites in the progressive wing of the Democrat Party HATE the world’s sole Jewish state. We expect the BDS movement will return on steroids.
  61. 2021 Sunday C: RNC Chairperson Ronna McDaniel chides the Democrats for wasting so much time chasing a white whale- the impeachment of Donald Trump a second time- instead of working on things the American people need and demand.   Speaking of the GOP, the Louisiana Grand Old Party censures Senator Bill Cassidy for voting to convict President Donald J. Trump.  His counterpart, Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski recognizes the danger she’s in in the 2022 Mid-Terms because she, too, voted to convict and the state GOP and the voters are pissed off at her.  We think former Governor Sarah Palin should primary the closet Democrat in 2022.   In similar news, the North Carolina GOP immediately censured Senator Richard Burr for his vote to convict.  He is retiring because like his former Senate colleagues Jeff Flake, R-AZ, and Little Bob Corker, R-TN, he knows he cannot win.   Mark Walker is running to take his seat in the primary.   Finally, another disgruntled loser, Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska is quoted as saying, “Tribalism is a hell of a drug.”  You need to go, too.  Oh- one other thing- Peter Navarro says that ‘Mike Pence’s betrayal of President Trump on January 6 will be seen as the worst in history.’  We agree.
  62. 2021 Sunday D: The Minnesota Court of Appeals drops a motion to delay the start of former Minneapolis Police Department Officer Derek Chauvin.  Might as well get it over with, folks.  Meanwhile, in Connecticut, people remember slain Yale graduate student, shot to death by an unknown perp.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Supreme Court clears the way for the extradition of an American father and son to Japan for trial.  The pair helped former Nissan Motor Company Chairman Carlos Ghosn so he could evade trial on financial misconduct charges.  Michael and Peter Taylor- the father and son- hid Ghosn in a box on a private jet back in 2019 and got him into Lebanon, a country with no extradition treaty with Japan.  They’re in trouble.
  63. 2021 Sunday E: The Pentagon is looking to automate its warplanes and warships.  Cool.  Meanwhile, Tesla announces that its electric semitruck will have a 500 KWH battery pack that should enable the truck to travel long distances following heavy loads.  Question for Elon Musk: what about the Hyperloop?  Would not the Hyperloop from one end of the country to the other be the fastest way to transport human beings, animals, and cargo?  Come on, man!   In other news, Toni Breidinger becomes the first woman of Arabic descent to compete in the Indy 500.  Although she came in 18th place, it’s still a great debut and she hopes others will follow in her footsteps. 
  64. 2021 Sunday F: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 108,715,375 confirmed cases, +273,125, 2,397,312, confirmed deaths, +6,864, and 60,986,298 confirmed recoveries, +193,753.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 27,837,755 confirmed cases, up 12,678 from yesterday’s reporting, 488,674 confirmed deaths, UP 212, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- same as reported for nearly two weeks now.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile moron.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 158,969 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, YOU claimed you had a plan to defeat the communist virus, what the hell are YOU going to do about it- sit on your ass and blame everything on Donald Trump.
  65. 2021 Sunday G: 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: 3,479,029 confirmed cases, 46,865 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,460 confirmed cases, 426 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 331,033 confirmed cases, 4,739 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Michigan: currently, they have 628,956 confirmed cases, 16,119 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 724,380 confirmed cases, 5,388 confirmed deaths, and 655,519 confirmed recoveries.
  66. 2021 Sunday H: Speaking of the Wuhan Virus, the U.S. has deep concerns over the origins of COVID-19 in communist China, especially after the World Health Organization has tried to protect their bosses in Beijing.  National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan is concerned about the WHO claiming there’s ‘insufficient data to link the Chi-Com Virus to the Chi-Coms’ as well as the fact Beijing continues trying to tie the U.S. Army to the crimes THEY committed.  One thing the WHO did admit to is that the number of cases in Wuhan were 500-percent higher than the Chi-Coms reported.    
  67. 2021 Sunday I: In Oregon, four people who have received all vaccinations for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu have now tested positive for the virus.  Uh, okay?   Across the country, about 38 million people have received all injections of the vaccine.  Meanwhile, an aide of New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo cover up the numbers of deaths in the Empire State’s nursing homes is now going to work for the Biden administration and work on the same flipping thing.  These people should be in prison.  Together.  Oh- the Obamacare exchanges are going to reopen but without additional funding so the site can hire additional staff with which to peddle the greatest boondoggle in the history of the United States.  In other fascinating news about COVID-19, since Philadelphia locked down in March 2020, there have been 2,200 shootings and 500-plus homicides.  This year, they have already seen 60 people killed.  They blame this on the Chinese Virus, you know, the “Panda Pandemic.”
  68. 2021 Sunday J: In other interesting news from around the world, the people of Myanmar are dealing with a crime wave not seen since the last time the junta of generals took control of the government.  The junta has emptied many thugs from the prisons and have inserted them into the crowds of peaceful protesters demanding the release of their elected leaders and a restoration of their democratically-elected government.  The freedom-loving people say the infiltrators cause violence so things can get out of control  which then allows the military to crack down even harder.  We hate to say this but it sounds sort of like what happened in the United States on January 6, 2021 when peaceful protesters walked to the Capitol and then mobs of Antifa and Black Lives Matter criminals stormed the Capitol, the one that NO one reinforced, even though weeks before, President Trump offered up to 10,000 National Guard troops.  Now we have walls around the Capitol and troops walking the streets.  Sounds rather like what’s going on in Yangon, Myanmar.

Justin Fairfax- has his own problems.  In more #MeToo allegations, a woman who worked for the lieutenant governor accuses him of rape, of forced sodomy and the like.  What is going on in this once reputable state?  What is up with all these Democrats?  The state’s AG- Mark Herring- says, ‘yup, I wore blackface at a party back in 1980 while in college.’  Folks, the Democrats always accuse their political enemies of being RACISTS yet here are three bigwig Democrats and two of them are racists and one a sexual offender.  You can’t make this stuff up, folks, you simply cannot.
  58. 2020 Thursday: Following a speech by President Trump at the National Prayer Breakfast, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi goes to the microphone banks and gives one of her most incoherent, rambling, ambling speeches yet, attacking the president, condemning the president, and trying to justify tearing up the president’s speech at Tuesday night’s SOTU address.  How this senile crone clings to power is beyond millions of Americans; we expect her to pay the price on Election Day 2020 becoming the first House speaker to lose the position not once but twice, along with her congressional seat.  Later, President Trump thanked his supporters in both House and Senate, as well as his cabinet members, and other assembled VIPS.  The speech was absolutely wonderful and concluded with the president’s determination to help as many Republicans win or keep their seats in November.  Godspeed, Mr. President, Godspeed.  Meanwhile, in China, more and more images come out via social media showing the outbreak of the corona virus to be far worse than what the communist authorities claim.  We think a biological warfare experiment went awry and now the world is going to pay the price for their bumbling.  Thank you, President Xi, thank you.

  60. 2021 Saturday A: In New York’s 22nd U.S. House District, the one in which, Republican Claudia Tenney finally won her old seat back, Democrat Anthony Brindisi, the beaten Democrat, is now crying about the Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic software.  IF you agree to taking another LOOK into the 2020 Presidential Election and how it was stolen from one candidate and given to another, perhaps we will take another look at this House race.  Otherwise, STFU.   Elsewhere, Joe Biden has stripped President Donald J. Trump of his security clearance.   Speaking of Joe Biden, he’s bringing back the ‘President’s weekly radio address.’  Let’s look for an earpiece folks so we can know that someone is putting words in his ear.   Finally, the U.S. Supreme Court partially lifts California’s ban on church gatherings.
  61. 2021 Saturday B: Congressman Hakeem Jeffries, D-NY, says that to accept the GOP counter COVID-19 bill is to commit ‘unconditional surrender.’  Elsewhere, the people are Myanmar are out in the streets protesting the coup against their government even with the Internet shut down.  The interesting thing about this is the Biden administration is upset about the coup in Burma but could care less that he won the 2020 Presidential Election via a…coup.  The Democrats, the RINOs, the Chi-Coms, and Canada- among others- conspired to topple President Trump and to then shove the senile usurper into his place.  What the flaming f**k? 
  62. 2021 Saturday C: COVID-19 Daily Update:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 105,461,681 confirmed cases, +238,473, 2,300,891, confirmed deaths, +7,628, and 58,645,012 confirmed recoveries, +144,616.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 27,054,709 confirmed cases, up 78,221 from yesterday’s reporting, 463,090 confirmed deaths, UP 1,837, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- NO more updates on this number thanks to Joe Biden, going on for nearly as long as #46 has been in the White House.  Coincidence?  You be the judge.  NOTE- in the White House 17 DAYS, apparently the U.S. will NO longer report the number of recoveries.  Shame on you, Chi-Com Joe.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 134,662 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, talk is cheap, what are YOU going to do about it?  Maybe you will be a worse murderer than Andrew “Killer” Cuomo is in the Empire State?
  63. 2021 Saturday D: 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: 3,395,385 confirmed cases, 43,647 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,286 confirmed cases (again, Hawaii is no longer reporting their case numbers in more than a week), 416 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 323,334 confirmed cases, 4,526 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the country: Georgia.  Currently, they have 932,912 confirmed cases, 14,858 confirmed deaths, but NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 680,856 confirmed cases, 5,020 confirmed deaths, and 590,822 confirmed recoveries.  For the heck of it, let’s look at one other country: the United Kingdom.  The UK has 3.929,835 confirmed cases, 112,092 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed deaths.  What a load of crap, share the TRUTH! 
  64. 2021 Saturday E: The Biden administration ends another Trump era agreement, this one in which, asylum-seeking illegal aliens were able to be returned back to El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.  Oh, thank you, Joe, for swarming our country with millions more illegal aliens to whom you are going to grant citizenship.  Can the country survive?  Elsewhere, Michigan is the first state revamping the state’s GOP leadership and folks, they are recruiting strong Trump supporters which is good.   Meanwhile, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers wins his third NFL MVP Award making him only the sixth person in NFL history to win three or more such honors.  Congratulations, Aaron.   Finally, the now discredited Lincoln Project continues imploding as yet another phony- in this case, Jennifer Horn- threw in the towel following disclosures about gay sex addict John Weaver.
  65. 2021 Saturday F: Here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3532 with an $18 million jackpot on the line: 04, 16, 32, 35, 45, and Mega 17.  Out of 108,912 winning tickets, the highest winners were two people who had FIVE numbers but no Mega for a prize of $19,457 apiece.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #818 with a $30 million jackpot up for grabs: 01, 16, 48, 49, 65, and Power 08.  Out of 54,318 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $27,839.
  66. 2021 Saturday G: The former 60th U.S. Secretary of State George P. Schultz died at his home in Stanford, California, at age 100 today.  A Republican, he served under President Ronald Reagan / served from 07-16-1982 to 01-20-1989.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

UFO Mk. II went out on the road in support of their “Misdemeanor” album and thus we have “Misdemeanor Tour,” an album that hit record store shelves (when record stores still existed- well maybe we still have a few in places where Democrats and their COVID-19 restrictions don’t stifle business)  and the band that recorded the studio album went out on the road in support of it.  This is a glorious addition to the “UFO” catalog in much the same way when both Joe Perry and Brad Whitford dumped Aerosmith back in the 1980s and Steven Tyler carried on with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay.  We think you will find this album absolutely glorious which is why we are wholeheartedly behind it.  We hope you will seek this one and add it to your collection- you will enjoy it.

  66. 2020 Friday: Today is the day- or so millions of Americans hope- that the impeachment farce of President Donald J. Trump will move to a vote for acquittal or if the Democrats are lucky to get what they seek- witnesses will occur.  Let us hope for the former and not the latter.  By mid-day, the Senate voted 51-49 against calling witnesses, deflating the sputtering Democratic Party balloon.  Two Republicans- Susan Collins of Maine and Mitt Romney of Utah voted with the Democrats.  Meanwhile, the first Democrat to enter the race for the 2020 Democratic Party’s presidential nomination- former Maryland Congressman John Delaney and seemingly decent guy became the 16th Democrat to bail from the race.  He entered the race- get this- on July 28, 2017.  Oh, well.  Elsewhere, the Kung Flu continues spreading across the globe.  Italy reports its first couple of cases and prohibits cruise ships from offloading thousands of passengers.  Democrats in the U.S. tell everyone to go to “Chinatown,” to ‘go hug Chinese people.’  That advice would devastate Italy and other WOKE Western nations.  
  67. 2021 Sunday: DAY TWELVE OF THE BIDEN REGIME: the Biden White House says that IT’S going to investigate the GameStop matter.  Uh, excuse us, Joe, isn’t that the job of the Treasury or Justice Departments?   Meanwhile, California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom now is coming under verbal assault from Democrats besides Republicans as the numbers demanding his recall continue increasing by the day.  This loser- Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s nephew- is going to lose his seat.   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump and the GOP have raised $255.4 million in the two months since Election Day 2020.  Elsewhere, 39.6 million Americans underwent FBI background checks for gun purchases.  Heck,  some of the chef-bloggers here bought guns last year, there is NO way we wouldn’t, especially when you consider all the left-wing Marxist violence in the streets.
  68. 2021 Sunday A:  Officer Brian Sicknick- the Capitol Hill police officer slain by Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs during the storming of Capitol Hill on January 6 will lie in state in the Rotunda in the building where he served later this week.  Elsewhere, we learn- no big surprise- that 98-percent of Twitter employees donated to Democrats.  Go figure.  Meanwhile, Claudia Tenney’s lead in her New York Congressional race is now becoming insurmountable and we expect a judge early this upcoming week to announce her the ‘winner.’  Next, President Donald J. Trump once again has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.   Finally, the Arizona state senate is hiring its own investigators to delve into the rampant election fraud that occurred in that state.        
  69. 2021 Sunday B: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 102,871,614 confirmed cases, +468,367, 2,225,773, confirmed deaths, +11,160, and 56,981,674 confirmed recoveries, +326,805.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 26,423,597 confirmed cases, up 140,106 from yesterday’s reporting, 446,010 confirmed deaths, UP 2,481, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- same as reported earlier this week.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic old fool.  NOW.
  70. 2021 Sunday 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: 3,309,463 confirmed cases, 40,697 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,070 confirmed cases, 410 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 315,448 confirmed cases, 4,368 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- the Northern Marianas Islands: currently, they have 131 confirmed cases, 2 confirmed deaths, and 32 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 643,435 confirmed cases, 4,796 confirmed deaths, and 572,511 confirmed recoveries.   
  71. 2021 Sunday D: Warnings are being raised about Chi-Com megacorporation BGI Group, an entity that ostensibly seeks to process data from COVID-19 tests from around the world all for a generous price and plenty of donations where and when necessary to open the doors for them.  In exchange, they collect biodata of U.S. and global citizens which then is shipped back to the Chi-Coms who then store this data for future use.  Anytime the Chi-Coms say they want to ‘help’ a country is when everyone must awaken, take note, and begin working to push back against these totalitarian, fascist-communist thugs.  We must be aware of everything the Chi-Coms seek to do with U.S. biodata as you can be sure they are going to use it against the American people, NOT to help them as they proclaim.
  72. 2021 Sunday E: BIG NFL NEWS- L.A. Rams quarterback Jared Goff has been traded to the Detroit Lions in exchange for Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford.  The Lions will also receive two 1st round and one 3rd round draft pick.  NO PRO BOWL THIS YEAR THANKS TO THE CHI-COMS AND THEIR FLIPPING VIRUS.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

UFO put out a ‘best of compilation- live’ on October 17, 1983 which is phenomenal, “UFO Headstone- the Best of UFO Live.”  The band featured Phil Mogg (vocals), Andy Parker (drums), Paul Chapman (guitars), Neil Carter (keyboards/rhythm guitar/vocals), and Paul Gray (bass).   The album features 11 cuts, most of them from later in the career rather than earlier but what the heck- the band was always awesome performing live and having seen them on numerous occasions, we love them no matter who’s in the lineup and no matter what decade.  We hope that everyone is going to seek this album out and consider making it a part of your vast collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-approved musical selections.  You will be glad you did.

ENDNOTES:


[i] Just like what the Democrats are attempting to do in 2020 as they try to remove President Donald J. Trump from office and to subordinate the office of the presidency- head of the Executive Branch- to the House speaker in the Legislative Branch.  How well did things work out for Europe in the 1930s-1940s?  Not so good.

[ii] We began offering the music of the Doors on Saturday, 18-February-2012 and concluded them on Monday, 02-April-2012.  We encourage everyone to seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[iii] We will present the music of Chicago sometime in 2030 so we hope you will remain with us until then.

[iv] We presented the music of Roxy Music at the secondary blog and hope to do it at the main blog sometime within the next 3 years. At the secondary blog, we began promoting the music of this famed British band as well as of Bryan Ferry, Andy Mackay, and Phil Manzanera beginning on Wednesday, September 07, 2016 through several successive months.  We hope you will seek them out.

[v] We promoted the music of the great California rock band, Spirit- and the music of its members- beginning on Monday, 18-June-2012 through Friday, 10-August-2012.  We hope you will seek this band out and add it to your growing collection of top-quality rock music. This included the music of Jo Jo Gunne.

[vi] We began promoting the music of the Grateful Dead- including Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Phil Lesh- beginning on Tuesday, 30-August-2011 through Wednesday, 11-January-2012.  Then, we did a second series featuring more albums by this fabled San Francisco band beginning on Friday, 09-August-2013 through Monday, 19-August-2013.  At some point, we will have to do a third series as the music from this band never ends.  Please, seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[vii] We look forward to doing the music of this famed funk-rock band.  The Ohio Players are amazing and what is even more exciting is the fact that the band is still alive today and performing to this day.

[viii] We expect to present the music of the Jackson Five and Michael Jackson sometime in 2025-2026 so please stay tuned for future developments.

[ix] We promoted the music of Buffalo Springfield beginning on Saturday, 17-November-2012 through Saturday, 24-November-2012.  We hope you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your collection.  You will be glad you did.

[x] The music of this famed British band, Family as well as the spin-off group, Streetwalkers, appeared on Tuesday, 08-October-2013 through Thursday, 31-October-2013.

[xi] We presented the music of this British prog-rock band, the amazing King Crimson, beginning on Monday, 20-October-2014 through Sunday, 21-December-2014.  We hope you will check them out and add them to your collection.

[xii] We should have promoted the music of Asia around the time we did King Crimson and/or Family but we failed to do so.  However, we hope to do so sometime within the next 10-15 years.  

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

  51. 2013 Friday: A French court orders Twitter to reveal personal information after some of its users have posted anti-Semitic and racist rants using the source.   Elsewhere, riots break out in Moscow as the parliament attempts to pass anti-LGBTQIA+ measures. 
  52. 2014 Saturday: The DOW Jones Industrial Average drops 300 points after slowing growth in China and plans by the Federal Reserve to begin tapering of its own causes investors to withdraw money from emerging markets; this is the worst drop the DOW has seen since 2011.
  53. 2015 Sunday: President Barack Obama[iv] and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi make progress in the areas of defense and nuclear trade; the countries plan to cooperate on defense issues, military manufacturing initiatives, and nuclear power development.
  54. 2016 Monday: Near the Nigerian border in northern Cameroon, Boko Haram runs amok what with suicide bombers killing 32 people and wounding another 66.  Meanwhile, in Yemen, a Saudi-led airstrike kills a Yemeni judge and members of his family.  This, of course, leads to intense outrage across the world.
  55. 2017 Wednesday: Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto says there’s ‘no way that Mexico is going to pay for ANY PART of the border wall between Mexico and the United States,’ the one promised by President Donald J. Trump.  Speaking of the 45th president, he signs two executive orders, one that strips funding away from sanctuary cities and states and the other to begin construction on the wall that Mexico ‘won’t pay for.’
  56. 2018 Thursday: The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists move the Doomsday Clock[v] by 30 seconds to 2 minutes to midnight, the closest it’s been since the 1950s.  The group is a left-wing group and they are afraid of President Donald J. Trump and not the terrorist nations of Iran and North Korea.  Meanwhile, President Trump informs the Palestinians that they are going to lose their foreign aid if they fail to begin working with Israel on peace.
  57. 2019 Friday: After 27 years of struggle- following the dissolution of Yugoslavia into its core parts, the Greek Parliament votes on whether to accept the Republic of Macedonia- a name with which, they took umbrage seeing as how Alexander was born in Macedonia- Greek Macedonia- and by a vote of 153-146 that the Republic of Macedonia changing its name to the Republic of Northern Macedonia is acceptable and can occur.  There you go.
  58. 2020 Saturday:  Comrade Xi Jinping calls for a special meeting of the Chi-Com Politburo where he discusses the spread of COVID-19 and the danger it poses to the people of China.   Of course, it originated in the Wuhan biomedical/biowarfare laboratory (although they would seek to blame the U.S. Army at a later date for bringing it into their country- a bogus claim but such are communists).   Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of State orders its consulate staffers to begin leaving communist China ASAP.
  59. 2021 Monday:  First of all, it’s official: Janet Yellen is now the first female U.S. Treasury secretary.  Congratulations.  It really matters what is or what is NOT between your legs.  We are proud.  Next, the LEFT is celebrating ‘President’ Joe Biden’s ‘Catholicism’ which is strange because the man is a founding member of the Pro-Death Movement (aka Pro-Choice).  IF Pope Francis were not such a leftist himself, he’d excommunicate the Satan-worshipping ‘46th president.’  Up next, ‘President’ Joe Biden ends the Trump era ban on trannys serving in the military.   Following that, ‘President’ Joe Biden steals Donald Trump’s ‘make American, buy American’ program and remakes it as his own.  Plagiarist to the end there, Joe.
  60. 2021 Monday A: In the Golden State in the city of San (“Lord when are you going to destroy me like You did Sodom and Gomorrah?”) Francisco, taxpayers are going to continue paying the upscale hotel fees for housing the homeless until September 2021 at the earliest.  And Governor Gavin Newsom why’s there now over 1 million signatures on his recall petition.  Speaking of our brave governor, he’s ‘seen the light and is rolling back stay-at-home-orders.’  Too late, Smiler, too late.
  61. 2021 Monday B: ‘President’ Joe Biden has decided to maintain his predecessor’s travel bans on numerous countries due to the rampaging COVID-19, aka the Wuhan Virus, and has added South Africa to the list.  Sounds ‘racist’ to us, there, ‘Mr. President.’  Speaking of the ‘usurper-in-chief,’ he’s facing bi-partisan pushback on his massive porkulus stimulus bill which is good.  $1.9 trillion is way too much money, especially when one considers the money is flowing east from Beijing to Washington, D.C., to pay for this plus the fact ILLEGAL ALIENS are getting stimulus checks, too.  Meanwhile, ‘President’ Joe Biden announces he is going to erase all student loan debt.  That is going to lead to loss of still more jobs and lenders going broke.
  62. 2021 Monday C:  Strange things are occurring in Washington, D.C., what with the Washington Monument suddenly going dark.  Investigators are investigating.  Meanwhile, the Democrats are ordering reviews of all police departments and military and National Guard units to root out ‘right-wing radicals.’  My, my, it’s okay to be Antifa, Occupy, BLM, or even the U.S. branch of Mao’s Red Guards but conservatives?  Oh, no, never.  Speaking of trash rioting in the streets, Tacoma, Washington, now is aflame thanks to cadres of Chi-Com-trained Antifa thugs running amok in the streets.  Governor Inslee, how about calling out the National Guard and squashing these insects.  Finally, to continue the aura that Washington, D.C., is under siege from Trump supporters, 7,000 National Guard troops- the ones who have been purified by the left- will remain in the city until sometime in March, AFTER the bogus second impeachment trial of an ex-president ends.
  63. 2021 Monday D: ‘President’ Joe Biden’s boss, Xi Jinping, warns the U.S. against an ‘outmoded cold war mentality.’  Okay.  Meanwhile, as Russia continues rounding up thousands of anti-Putin supporters of Alexei Navalny, the ‘Biden administration’ makes weak demands of the Kremlin to ‘let these people go.’  Putin does not even meet the U.S. ambassador in person and even worse, tells ‘President’ Biden NOT to meddle in the affairs of Russia.  Yikes.   Elsewhere, a recent study shows that the world’s ice is melting at a higher rate than it was 30 years ago; yet liberals continue buying beachfront homes.  What’s up with that hypocrisy?
  64. 2021 Monday E: COVID-19 pays good, folks: Dr. Tony Fauci, darling of the American left, pulls in the highest annual salary in the federal government: $417.6 thousand dollars per year.  How many times has this goof ball been wrong?  We’ve lost count.  Speaking of the Chi-Vi, an ABC ‘poll’ says that 69-percent of Americans approve of ‘President’ Joe Biden’s handling of the COVID-19 crisis.  What has he done that Trump didn’t do?  Biden says in his first 100 days, he was going to get 100 million doses out to the American people.  Now, he’s jacking it up to 150 million doses.  We shall see.  News reports are saying that there are many unexplained deaths surrounding people who have gotten the virus.  Not good.   Meanwhile, FEMA says it will reimburse SOME of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu’s costs to the states.  (Pssst- don’t reimburse Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo because that man is responsible for a genocide among seniors and the chronically ill in the Empire State).  Finally, while COVID-19 runs amok, the billionaires continue growing wealthier while the middle and lower classes continue growing poorer.  All by leftist design, social engineering, and pro-Chi-Com politics.
  65. 2021 Monday F: The U.S. Supreme Court ends anticorruption cases launched against former President Donald J. Trump.  Speaking of the high court, Chief Justice John Roberts says he will NOT attend the ‘second impeachment sham trial,’ which leaves the Democrats to elevate old fogey Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy to the dais in an unconstitutional trial.  Regarding impeachment, the Epoch Times says there are 29 GOP senators who are anti-impeachment and will make their presence known once the scam commences.   Also, Congressman Jim Jordan, R-OH, is rounding up a rapid-response squad to counter Democrat moves to impeach- a second, illegal time- former President Donald J. Trump.  Elsewhere, Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, is filing a countersuit against seven Democratic senators who tried to tie him and Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, to the Antifa-led Capitol Hill Riots of January 6 who tried to get him and his colleague expelled from the upper chamber.  Finally, Senator Rob Portman, R-OH, says he won’t seek re-election.  
  66. 2021 Monday G: ‘President’ Joe Biden says he’s going to ‘expedite getting Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill.  Look, ‘Chi-Com Joe’ (we mean ‘President Joe’) why don’t you make a new bill, the $25 bill?  We have pushed that for a long, long time- since Barack Hussein Obama was ‘president.’  That makes more sense.  Meanwhile, the Instagram scandal over ‘President’ Joe Biden followers grows- hardly anyone is following the so-called 46th president on the White House feed so Instagram has been charged with forcing all users to follow ‘President’ Joe Biden’s White House feed.  Speaking of shams and scams, Twitter has launched a program called “Birdwatch” that will monitor misinformation on its site and online.  They are going to bust all manner of leftists spreading disinformation and misinformation.  Speaking of social media, the Trump Family regains some of their social media followers.   Rupert Murdoch slams liberal media for its ‘awful WOKE orthodoxy’ and yet, Fox News worked to defeat President Trump and to put an usurper in his place.  Shame.  Elsewhere, former UN Ambassador says the ‘media bears partial responsibility for some of the divisions’ affecting our country.
  67. 2021 Monday H: Mayoral candidate Andrew Yang, Democrat, says, “New York City must restore its value.”  Question is- is it too late?  Next, famed attorney Alan Dershowitz says he will America’s Mayor Rudy Giuliani to the ‘depths of his soul’ as the corrupt Dominion Voting System-election-stealing company out of a now hostile Canada seeks to sue the living bejezzus out of Mr. Giuliani over his battle to expose the Canadian scum for exactly what they are: criminals (or so we allege).  In other news, Budweiser says it’s NOT going to spend any money on commercials for the Super Bowl on February 7.   Meanwhile, Montana passes four bills limiting ABORTION.  Congratulations!
  68. 2021 Monday I: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 99,655,985 confirmed cases, +599,649, 2,138,251, confirmed deaths, +12,324, and 54,961,829 confirmed recoveries, +316,036.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 25,501,479 confirmed cases, up 127,128 from yesterday’s reporting, 425,429 confirmed deaths, UP 1,638, and 11,166,132 confirmed recoveries, UP 35,702.
  69. 2021 Monday J: 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: 3,200,931 confirmed cases, 37,349 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 (sill the same as it was a week ago- something is going on in Honolulu) confirmed cases, 342 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 304,617 confirmed cases, 4,182 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Maine: currently, they have 37,046 confirmed cases, 547 confirmed deaths, and 12,245 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 606,365 confirmed cases, 4,498 confirmed deaths, and 529,834 confirmed recoveries.   Speaking of the Wuhan Flu, MRNA says its Chi-Vi vaccine will protect against ALL variants.  Wow.  A miracle drug.
  70. 2021 Monday K:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,960.00, DOWN 36.98 points (-0.12%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,635.99, UP 92.93 points (+0.69%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,855.36, UP 13.89 points (+0.36%).  The price of GOLD is $1,853.90 per troy oz., -1.30 (-0.07%) while the price of SILVER is $25.40 per troy ounce, -0.089 (-0.35%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,098.00 per troy oz, -6.70 (-0.61%) while the price of COPPER is $3.62 per pound, -0.011 (-0.30%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,346.90 per troy oz, -18.30 (-0.77%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.71 per barrel, -0.06 (-0.11%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.11.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000030.  In other economic news, investment in U.S. space programs hits a record $8.9 billion in 2020.  We must return to the moon and make it to Mars before the Chi-Coms do.  Period.  Watch ‘President’ Joe Biden strip funding from NASA. 
  71. 2021 Monday L: DAY SIX OF THE BIDEN REGIME- stick around to find out what else ‘President’ Joe Biden is up to today.  Hmmm, his ‘boss’ House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, she of drooping Botox-drenched face, walked the Article of Impeachment against ex- (the REAL) President Donald J. Trump to the U.S. Senate where the obsequious, knuckle-dragging Senate Majority Leader Charles “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer received it.  Impeachment proceedings to commence the day following Super Bowl LV.   Look, “Botox Nancy,” you are 10 seats away from losing control of the House.  In the Senate, we expect Raphael Warnock and Mark Kelly will be gone in 2022, seeing as how they were ‘winners’ of special elections in states where the state GOP leadership worked on behalf of Democrats.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Michael Schenker Group came back on September 05, 1981 with its sophomore effort, “MSG.”  Most fans believe this album to be the crème de la crème, much of the reason due to overproduction which gives it a superb sound.  Joining the fiery German guitarist are bassist Chris Glen (from the Sensational Alex Harvey Band), Cozy Powell (drums/percussion), Gary Barden (vocals), and the famed Paul Raymond of Chicken Shack, Savoy Brown, and UFO fame on keyboards/guitars/and vocals.  This album is absolutely amazing, one we love and wholeheartedly encourage everyone to rush out, give a listen to, and then consider adding it to your ever-growing collection- you will be so glad you did.

ENDNOTES:


[i] We promoted the music of the greatest blues-rock-British-boogie band, Savoy Brown, beginning on Friday, 28-January-2011 through Monday, 28-February-2011.  Kim Simmonds is one of the greatest guitarists of all time which is why everyone should check the music of this fabulous band out ASAP.

[ii] We promoted the music of the great California rock band, Spirit- and the music of its members- beginning on Monday, 18-June-2012 through Friday, 10-August-2012.  We hope you will seek this band out and add it to your growing collection of top-quality rock music. This included the music of Jo Jo Gunne.

[iii] Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is little more than a murderous thug who should have been droned in the same way we droned Gen. Qassim Soleimani, the terrorist POS who ran the Quds Force until Donald Trump wiped him out.

[iv] Many believe Barack Obama should be disqualified as a president because most believe he was born outside the United States which would ban him from ever seeking the highest office in the land.  At the very least, an asterisk should be placed by his name in all U.S. history books.

[v] The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists’ Doomsday Clock is a left-wing way to terrorize the citizens of the world whenever a conservative or Republican is president of the United States.  Pay no attention to these scumbags.

No wonder imbeciles such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez believe the world is coming to an end soon.  Sadly, the Sun is the sole driver of all climatic changes throughout the entire Solar System.  Conversation and fighting pollution is indeed important but the Earth- and other planets- have all gone through periods of climate change throughout the history of said Solar system. Meanwhile, to the ‘horror’ of Democrats, President Donald J. Trump shares classified intelligence regarding an ISIS attack coming soon against Russia with Russian Ambassador Sergey Ivanovich Kislyak and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in the Oval Office.  (Hence, Trump-Russia ‘collusion’).
  58. 2018: Following Iran firing missiles into Israel’s Golan Heights from Syria, the IDF lights up Iranian targets in Syria with 70 missiles, blowing up numerous installations and other military infrastructure. Of course, Iran claims Israel started the fight.
  59. 2019: The United States raises tariffs on $250 billion of Chinese imports, a jump of 25-percent, following the collapse of trade talks between the United States and the communist nation. Meanwhile, Uber becomes a publicly traded company on the New York Stock Exchange on this date.
  60. 2020: COVID-19 continues causing problems for the nations of the world what with 4,097,158 confirmed cases, 282,495 confirmed deaths, and 1,402,882 confirmed recoveries. In the United States, we have 1,362,715 confirmed cases, 80,562 confirmed deaths, and 208,344 confirmed recoveries which is good, the recoveries that is. Breaking down the three states in which the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors, California comes first. In the Golden State, there are 66,773 confirmed cases and 2,745 confirmed deaths but no mention of recoveries. In Hawaii, we have 732 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 561 confirmed recoveries. In Washington state, there are 16,891 confirmed cases and 931 confirmed deaths but like California, there is no mention of confirmed recoveries.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

 

 

#PF001.1u Dance Songs #21 04-20-2020 (400)

 

The record business being what it is, Pink Floyd released a ‘best of’ compilation effort that was truly an amalgam of re-recorded tunes and alternate versions of tunes from preceding albums.  “A Collection of Great Dance Songs” came out on November 23, 1981 and fills a gap in the band’s career as the end of the original lineup was coming soon due to exhaustion, anger with one another, lack of money even though tours were big-sellers and albums even more so.  We hope you will seek this one out and consider adding it to your growing collection of nothing but the absolute best in rock music; you can thank us later.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

 

#BF01.1e The Bride Stripped #5 08-19-16 (400)

 

We have mentioned that sometimes, Bryan Ferry hits the nail on the head and other times, he leaves his listeners stumbling around in the dark searching for a theme. Well, “The Bride Stripped Bare” (1978), is an album that has some dark movements but then, every album Ferry records is a stunning individualistic effort that fans enjoy. Ferry defined Roxy Music, Roxy Music defined Ferry, and one can see and hear common threads roaming through the works of each.  We hope you will look for this fabulous album out wherever you shop for the finest in rock music. We know you will enjoy it.

#RM01.1f Viva #6 03-06-2015 (400)

In 1976, Roxy Music released their first live album, the wonderful, “Viva!” Of all the English bands of the 1970s-early 1980s, ONLY Roxy Music has the amazing musical ability and talent with which to transcend both space and time through the unique style of their music. The vocals and keyboards of Bryan Ferry intermingled with the minimalistic guitars of Phil Manzanera and the flavors of Andy Mackay’s sax-and-oboe work had the ability to bring tears to the ears of their listeners. Augmented by the rest of the band—Eddie Jobson (violin, keyboards), Paul Thompson (drums), and several bass players—the band delivered a sterling live album compiled from several performances. We hope you will seek it out by visiting whatever site you do for nothing but the absolute best rock music in the world. Enjoy.

How this senile crone clings to power is beyond millions of Americans; we expect her to pay the price on Election Day 2020 becoming the first House speaker to lose the position not once but twice, along with her congressional seat. Later, President Trump thanked his supporters in both House and Senate, as well as his cabinet members, and other assembled VIPS. The speech was absolutely wonderful and concluded with the president’s determination to help as many Republicans win or keep their seats in November. Godspeed, Mr. President, Godspeed. Meanwhile, in China, more and more images come out via social media showing the outbreak of the corona virus to be far worse than what the communist authorities claim. We think a biological warfare experiment went awry and now the world is going to pay the price for their bumbling. Thank you, President Xi, thank you.

#RM01.1b For Your Pleasure #2 03-06-2015 (400)

The second album by Roxy Music, “For Your Pleasure” came out in 1973 and featured a slightly altered lineup of Brian Eno (vocals, electronics), Phil Manzanera (guitars), Andy Mackay (oboes, saxophones), Paul Thompson (drums), and John Porter (bass). As with most sophomore efforts, the band had more time to devote to the album, which yielded some amazing tunes such as “Do the Strand,” and “In Every Home a Heartache.” The band ranks at the top of all 1970s bands because Ferry has a unique vocal style, Manzanera and his guitar are raw, and primitive while Mackay and his oboe and saxophones capped off with Brian Eno and his synthesizers and electronics make a fantastic combination. This is a superb album so please buy it wherever you buy the finest in music.

 

As always, we thank the good folks at Brainy History for doing the extremely challenging work of compiling historical happenings, dates, and everything else by which at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day publish a blog that draws readers from all over the world! Thank you and God bless you for doing this especially important work!

[i] Just like what the Democrats are attempting to do in 2020 as they try to remove President Donald J. Trump from office and to subordinate the office of the presidency- head of the Executive Branch- to the House speaker in the Legislative Branch.  How well did things work out for Europe in the 1930s-1940s?  Not so good.

[ii] We began offering the music of the Doors on Saturday, 18-February-2012 and concluded them on Monday, 02-April-2012.  We encourage everyone to seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[iii] We will present the music of Chicago sometime in 2030 so we hope you will remain with us until then.

[iv] We presented the music of Roxy Music at the secondary blog and hope to do it at the main blog sometime within the next 3 years. At the secondary blog, we began promoting the music of this famed British band as well as of Bryan Ferry, Andy Mackay, and Phil Manzanera beginning on Wednesday, September 07, 2016 through several successive months.  We hope you will seek them out.

[v] We promoted the music of the great California rock band, Spirit- and the music of its members- beginning on Monday, 18-June-2012 through Friday, 10-August-2012.  We hope you will seek this band out and add it to your growing collection of top-quality rock music. This included the music of Jo Jo Gunne.

[vi] We began promoting the music of the Grateful Dead- including Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Phil Lesh- beginning on Tuesday, 30-August-2011 through Wednesday, 11-January-2012.  Then, we did a second series featuring more albums by this fabled San Francisco band beginning on Friday, 09-August-2013 through Monday, 19-August-2013.  At some point, we will have to do a third series as the music from this band never ends.  Please, seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[vii] We look forward to doing the music of this famed funk-rock band.  The Ohio Players are amazing and what is even more exciting is the fact that the band is still alive today and performing to this day.

[viii] We expect to present the music of the Jackson Five and Michael Jackson sometime in 2025-2026 so please stay tuned for future developments.

[ix] We promoted the music of Buffalo Springfield beginning on Saturday, 17-November-2012 through Saturday, 24-November-2012.  We hope you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your collection.  You will be glad you did.

[xi] We presented the music of this British prog-rock band, the amazing King Crimson, beginning on Monday, 20-October-2014 through Sunday, 21-December-2014.  We hope you will check them out and add them to your collection.

[xii] We should have promoted the music of Asia around the time we did King Crimson and/or Family but we failed to do so.  However, we hope to do so sometime within the next 10-15 years.
