  13. 1915 Saturday: The Austro-Hungarians with German reinforcements begin driving the Russians back in the Carpathians.   The Russians had a unique plan that if they could penetrate through this harsh range of mountains, they might be able to knock the Hapsburgs out of the war.  Although not the strongest member of the Central Powers, the core Austrian, and Hungarian troops and not their Slavic allies were up to the task.
  14. 1916 Monday: During World War I, the horrendous battle of Verdun continues as the French mount counterattacks against recent German domains.  The city of Verdun is a fortress surrounded by a series of fortresses (sort of like Dien Bien Phu would be decades later though not as fortified) and the Germans believe if they can punch through they might be able to bring France to its knees, possibly knock her out of the war for good.

  17. 1919 Thursday: The victorious allies hammering out the post-World War I peace in Paris, France, had sent South African General Jan Smuts to Budapest where a new Soviet-style regime had seized power.  The idea was to negotiate a peace between east and west but it was failure, the communists had no intention of participating in anything.  All Western diplomatic missions begin pulling out and American wives of Hungarian citizens are to leave with the British.  Things are in an uproar in Eastern Europe thanks to the NEW Soviet Union.  
  18. 1922 Monday: In the USSR, Josef Stalin becomes general secretary of the Communist Party.  Lenin, suffering from poor health did not want to appoint his far more murderous comrade Stalin to this post but Stalin was ‘caretaker’ for the ailing revolutionary.  Soon, Stalin would begin consolidating his power.

  65. 2020 Friday: Acting U.S. Secretary for the Navy Thomas Modly fires the captain of the USS Theodore Roosevelt due to his lack of military discipline as well as situational awareness around the issue of security.  Captain Brett Crozier- playing politics to the max- announces that 100-plus members of his crew have shown positive for China’s COVID-19 lab-engineered virus.  He ordered the ship- after spending a week’s time in Vietnam- to put into port in Guam where approximately 3,000 members of the 5,000-person crew will go into isolation.  Captain Crozier, instead of discreetly alerting top Navy brass about the problem, put the information into a memo, one he copied to 20-to-30 people, one of whom handed it over to the news media in the captain’s hometown of San Francisco[viii].  The information alerted the nation’s enemies that the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt was NOT battle-ready.  WTF?  Meanwhile, COVID-19 statistics at the beginning of the day for the planet come in at 1,026,974 confirmed cases with 53,975 confirmed deaths.  In the United States, the numbers stand at 245,573 confirmed cases what with 6,058 confirmed deaths.   As for the DOW Jones Industrial Average, it was down early in the day by 415.82 points sitting at 21,000.50 points at 8:00 A.M. PDT.  Late in the day, President Trump fired Michael Atkinson, the intelligence community ‘watchdog,’ most likely over all the FISA abuses that occurred in the plot to remove the 45th president for being a ‘Russian agent,’ since proven to be nothing more than an attempted coup.  Good riddance, you POS.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Age can never keep a good band down and UFO came roaring back three years after “The Monkey Puzzle” with “The Visitor,” which came out on June 02, 2009.  Joining vocalist Phill Mogg are longtime UFO veterans Andy Parker (drums), Paul Raymond (keyboards, vocals, and perhaps one of the hardest working musicians in all of rock), Vinnie Moore (guitars), and Peter Pichl (bass).  Folks, all we can say is that many bands don’t age well but these guys- Christ, they have been around far longer than lots of other bands.  Other than the Rolling Stones who have the all-time record for longevity (must be because they sold their souls for rock-and-roll), UFO has been around far longer than Led Zeppelin, the Kinks, the Who, the Faces, and many, many others so what the heck are you waiting for?  Seek this one out and make it a part of your listening day.

  54. 2010 Friday: Rescuers at a Shanxi mine in communist China are attempting to reach 153 trapped miners.  They report hearing signs of life including tapping, banging, and voices calling for help.  Family members of the trapped miners have been angry with local government believing they have consigned these people to their fates.

Trump lambastes the Chi-Coms for possessing the chutzpah to put retaliatory tariffs of up to 25-percent on 128 American products including American wines and pork products.  This is in response to the U.S. having slapped tariffs onto Chinese imports of both steel and aluminum, two poorly made Chi-Com products they have habitually dumped into the U.S. sans any blowback- until now.
  63. 2019 Tuesday: Climatologists claim that Canada is warming at twice the rate of the rest of the world, increasing 2.3% in the northern environs of the country.  Green New Deal lovers are dancing in the streets at the news.  Meanwhile, NASA lays out plans to return to the moon in 2024 and to put astronauts on Martian soil by 2033.  Meanwhile, Google +, a highly popular social media app (although Google says different) begins deleting its user accounts.  People had wonderful sites in perhaps one of the best social media platforms but Google- since they blew the 2016 Presidential Election notified its users in late 2018 that it was going to shut down the site due to low user activity and vulnerabilities that- if we are to believe them- were too difficult to fix.  They were too LAZY to fix them IF they existed.  Google shut down nothing else…scumbags.[viii]  
  64. 2020 Thursday: COVID-19 continues running amok around the world.  The Democratic Party has postponed its 2020 Convention until mid-August with the GOP following them on August 24 through the 27th.   In the United States, we currently have 226,300 confirmed cases with many more to be sure plus about 5,300 confirmed deaths.  The Guardian claims there are more than 750,000 confirmed cases worldwide with the death toll skyrocketing to over 36,000.  Unemployment numbers for the previous week double the prior week by coming in at 6.6 million new unemployment claims.  Some economists project as many as 20 million additional unemployed by the time we hit May.  Cloward and Piven would be delighted.  Meanwhile, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announces he will go back to the well in China so he can buy some of their top-of-the-line ventilators.  Does no one ever learn?  Food banks in the United States report a 92% jump in people seeking food thanks to the Wuhan Virus.   On a lighter note, Egypt reports a spike in ISIS attacks in the northern Sinai.  We say, “Crucify them!”
  65. 2021 Friday: YOU know the drill.  Let’s hope it’s not a heavy news day…

BB. 1944 Thursday A: An hour before midnight last night, the Germans trapped in the Cherkassy pocket began their breakout. The 72nd Infantry Division, the SS Viking Division, the 57th, 88th, and 389th Divisions are bringing up the rear while the 1st Panzer Division is leading the way. The wounded are being left behind. Everything is conducted in silence as much as possible and the Soviets are unaware of the breakout. By midday, however, fighting was becoming fiercer as the Russians began awakening to what was going on. Red Army tanks were in hot pursuit. However, the Germans were able to evacuate about 30,000 of their trapped 45,000 soldiers.

  54. 2016 Wednesday: After famed Filipino boxer Manny Pacquaio makes some comments about ‘gay people being worse than animals,’ Nike yanks a lucrative endorsement.  WTF?  The Cancel Culture strikes again.  Freedom of speech for ALL and not for some.  Elsewhere, a car bomb erupts in the streets of Ankara, Turkey, killing at least 28 passersby and wounding innumerable others.  Meanwhile, the White House announces that President Barack Obama will soon be visiting the communist island nation of Cuba within the next couple of weeks.

  56. 2018 Saturday: In north-eastern Nigeria in Konduga, three suicide bombers kill 18 people.  Ah, got to love the ‘religion of peace,’ no?  Elsewhere, in Swansea, United Kingdom, a 4.4-magnitude earthquake strikes the British Isles, the strongest in a decade.
  57. 2019 Sunday: In the streets of Port-au-Prince, Haiti, thousands protest in the streets over government corruption and inflation.  What else is new?  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump is facing massive pushback from Democrats and RINO Republicans alike following his Friday declaration of a National Emergency along the southern border.  He did this as Congress refuses him funds for the extremely necessary border wall.  Maggots.
  58. 2020 Monday: Disheveled old crone, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-CA, continues braying about President Trump being ‘impeached for life,’ that he ‘was not acquitted’ as ‘without a trial’ there can be no acquittal.  What should be clear to everyone is that this haggard old wretch should undergo impeachment herself because she has clearly lost her mind.  We hope in November 2020 the good people of her district will vote her out of office and send her home to sit in a rocking chair, a shawl covering her sagging shoulders, and that someone will turn on reruns of Matlock while spoon-feeding her chicken noodle soup.  We place part of the blame on her for convincing that Punjab POS Sundar Pichai to close our two Google  Blogger sites, simply because she won the Second Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award.  Say it ain’t so, Speaker Pelosi!  Meanwhile, additional negative information continues coming out on former New York City Mayor “Mini” Mike Bloomberg showing him disparaging farmers and factory workers all the while crowing about ‘stop and frisk’ taking down minority thug kids in his city.  What a bum.
  59. 2020 Monday A: Yesterday, it was 1,100-plus former Department of Justice officials demanding U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr over his request for Justice and for the judge in the Roger Stone case to reconsider the harsh sentence being imposed.  Today, it’s more than 2,000 former DOJ employees which tells you just how many hardcore leftists we have in the Justice Department.  Roger Stone does not deserve prison.  Period.
  60. 2021 Wednesday: 29 of the Biden Regime: THE BIG NEWS OF THE DAY- RUSH LIMBAUGH HAS SUCCUMBED TO LUNG CANCER AT AGE 70.  ALTHOUGH NONE OF US EVER HAD THE PLEASURE OF MEETING YOU OVER THE PAST THREE DECADES-PLUS, WE ALL FEEL AS THOUGH YOU WERE A PERSONAL FRIEND.  GOD BLESS AND WE WILL SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE.
  61. 2021 Wednesday A: After being slammed since he entered office for pulling back from America’s Middle Eastern allies- primarily Israel and Saudi Arabia- White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki says, ‘Joe reached out to Israel today.’  Wow.  Good for you, Chi-Com Joe!  Meanwhile, the Biden administration scraps a deal his predecessor made with ICE and Border Patrol unions that gave them VETO POWER over any misguided presidential decisions such as Joe Biden throwing open the southern border and allowing illegal aliens to stream in like lice off a dead dog.  In other Joe Biden news, the 46th president is under fire for his ‘soft-as-hell’ policies on the Chi-Coms.  He won’t go near the rampant human rights abuses in communist China, a place where institutional rape of Uighur Muslim women continues around the clock, a place where religious and ethnic minorities find themselves locked up in ‘job training centers.’   Come on, man, say something, Joe!  Former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says that ‘Joe is more or less spewing Chi-Com propaganda by not calling his masters out for their atrocious dismissal of human rights abuses in that country.’ 
  62. 2021 Wednesday B: Speaking of the Chi-Coms, bloggers in that country must now receive approval from the communist government before they comment or put up posts speaking about the law, the military, and/or politics.  In other Far East news, the citizens of Myanmar are throwing up roadblocks and protesting the military junta that took control of their country, locked up their civilian leaders, and is allowing loads of prison scum out into the streets to terrify the nation’s citizens. 
  63. 2021 Wednesday C: In Utah, the move to censure freshman RINO Senator Mitt Romney for voting to convict former President Donald J. Trump is gathering steam.  Within a span of about 36 hours, the movement has gained more than 5,000 signatures.  Meanwhile, the GOP is going to target the highly disliked teachers’ unions in the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.  Governors should fire these losers like President Ronald Reagan fired striking air traffic controllers.   Speaking of teachers’ unions, a billboard in Sonoma County, California, tells it like it is: “HAVE YOU SEEN OUR MISSING KIDS (referring to students), LAST SEEN ON MARCH 13, 2020?  Elsewhere, following last week’s vote of 15-8 in the South Carolina State Senate, the state’s House of Representatives is set to vote on a bill limiting abortions.  Once an ultrasound detects a fetal heartbeat, NO abortions can occur.  Period. 
  64. 2021 Wednesday D:  In New York, a bipartisan push to force the criminal Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo to share ALL information on the more than 9,000 nursing home deaths in the Empire State from his COVID-19 policies.  Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are demanding answers NOW.  Yet, this slope-headed cretin won’t apologize nor admit fault for the massive number of deaths that occurred on his watch, especially when President Donald J. Trump provided him with loads of help.   In other state news, In other Cuomo news, baby brother Chris, a dimwit on CNN, is also getting blasted for remaining mum on the outrages older brother Andrew has committed in New York.  Typical leftwing family member bums.  Georgia passes a bill that increases the penalties for violence committed by mobs which means Antifa and Black Lives Matter human garbage may soon find themselves in the joint. 
  65. 2021 Wednesday E: The Biden administration says the U.S. is going to pay the World Health Organization $200 million it claims the nation owes.  Everything Trump did, Biden is overturning (well, Barack Obama is overturning).  Speaking of overturning things, Joe Biden is backing away from the TikTok ban which means the Chi-Coms will be able to begin harvesting information from America’s young people being the dimwits they are.  Meanwhile, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, calls for harmony among members of the Grand Old Party.   Elsewhere, the NASA Mars Rover is set to deploy to the surface of the Red Planet tomorrow.  Next, former Texas Governor Rick Perry says, ‘Texans don’t want the federal government controlling their power grid.’  Hell, no one should want that, especially a freedom-loving state like the Lone Star State.  Speaking of the crazy winter weather sweeping through the region, at least 26 people have died in the storms.  Elsewhere, well-known high IQ genius Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke says, “Texas is a failed state.”  It requires a dimwit to see failure.  The only failure is that Austin allowed Green New Deal morons to push their bogus renewable energy sources.
  66. 2021 Wednesday F: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 109,678,891 confirmed cases, +432,687, 2,423,443, confirmed deaths, +12,988, and 61,717,022 confirmed recoveries, +284,639.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 28,030,330 confirmed cases, up 64,545 from yesterday’s reporting, 492,947 confirmed deaths, UP 1,831, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP- UNKNOWN- same number as the last three-plus week’s number- WTF.  NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 164,356 CHI-VI DEATHS.  Joe, you said you had a plan- where the f**k is it?  In Beijing?  YOU are NOT our president, sir.
  67. 2021 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-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,498,760 confirmed cases, 47,446 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 leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 333,185 confirmed cases, 4,777 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Virginia: currently, they have 555,592 confirmed cases, 7,075 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 734,575 confirmed cases, 5,441 confirmed deaths, and 673,908 confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other country, shall we?  Italy: 2,735,591 confirmed cases, 94,171 confirmed deaths, and 2,251,734 confirmed recoveries.    In other interesting Chinese Virus news, we learned today what we already knew: the Chi-Coms spearheaded a massive disinformation campaign to cover up their role as the ORIGINATORS of the Wuhan Virus Crisis.  Go figure.
  68. 2021 Wednesday H:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,613.02, UP 90.27 points (+0.29%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,965.50, DOWN 82.00 points (-0.58%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,931.33, DOWN 1.26 points (-0.31%).  The price of GOLD is $1,775.10 per troy oz., +2.30 (+0.10%) while the price of SILVER is $27.45 per troy ounce, +0.13 (+0.48%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,262.30 per troy oz, +4.60 (+0.37%) while the price of COPPER is $3.82 per pound, 0.00 (+0.01%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,369.20 per troy oz, -18.50 (-0.77%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $61.72 per barrel, +0.58 (+0.95%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.45 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.22.  Next, one American dollar equals 0.000019 Bitcoin.  Meanwhile, Australia says the new rules regarding search engines and social media sites to pay for their news feeds is working out well.

Meanwhile, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3535 with a prize of $21 million on the line: 20, 26, 39, 40, 46, and Mega 19.  Out of 99,136 winning tickets, the highest winners were EIGHT people who had FOUR plus the Mega for a prize of $2,263 apiece.  Here are the results for tonight’s Powerball Drawing #821 with a $68 million prize up for grabs: 01, 15, 21, 32, 46, and Powerball 01.  Out of 47,168 winning tickets, te highest winners were 28 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $483 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

This amazing set contains the crème de la crème of UFO during the Michael Schenker Era.  “Essential” came out on October 15, 1992 and features some of the greatest tunes this hard-rocking British quintet knocked out between 1974 to 1979.  We hope you will look into this one, giving samples a good listen because much like the BIGGER bands such as Savoy Brown, Deep Purple, Ten Years After, and even Led Zeppelin, these blighters could blow ‘em off stage on a glorious day.  We hope you will seek it out wherever you shop for the absolute best in rock music and make it a part of your listening day- much like Sanorex, it will keep you going around the clock with no discernable hearing loss.

You definitely need to check out the music of the Beatles, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr- you will be glad you did.

[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.

Trump’s Executive Order 13769, an order prohibiting travelers coming in from seven Muslim predominant nations into the U.S. takes effect.  A judge will soon halt it.   Meanwhile, Iran- one of the countries on the banned list- says it will take reciprocal action against the United States.  After what they’ve done to us, who the f**k would want to go there.

  64. 2019 Monday: As international screws tighten on Venezuela’s illegitimate government of Nicolas Maduro, the U.S. Department of Treasury announces new sanctions on the Venezuelan government-owned oil company, the PDVSA.  The hope is this will strangle the criminal government of its main source of income and foreign cash.  We shall see.  Elsewhere, now that the federal government has reopened, President Donald J. Trump accepts House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s invitation to give his State of the Union Address on February 5, 2019.
  65. 2020 Tuesday: The third and final day of the defense of President Donald J. Trump at his impeachment trial occurs.  Beginning tomorrow, two days of questions from senate ‘jurors’ to counsels on both sides will begin.  Elsewhere, Chi-Com authorities report COVID-19 cases are skyrocketing with 1,291 in Hubei Province.   Comrade Xi Jinping informs his lackey in the World Health Organization Dr. Tedros that his country is confident it can beat this ‘devil virus’ (from the United States- you know they’re saying this crap).
  66. 2021 Thursday: DAY NINE OF THE BIDEN REGIME- after Rush Limbaugh says that Joe Biden is the ‘third term of Barack Obama,’ the 46th president- after signing his umpteenth executive order- admits as much.  He says he is reinstituting the Obama agenda and that it is what it is.  Next, CPAC- Conservative Political Action Committee- and the ACU- American Conservative Union slam Politico for trying to strip them of their financial backers.  Meanwhile, Bill O’Reilly tells Newsmax that the Democratic Party’s goal is to break capitalism for good.   Elsewhere, RNC Chairperson Ronna McDaniel says that the GOP is going to remain NEUTRAL in 2024 GOP primary battles.  Of course, Dems say this is going to anger Donald Trump.  Sure.  Uh huh.  They MUST remain neutral; McDaniel cannot behave as Donna Brazile did in 2016 when she favored Hillary Rodham Clinton over Bernie Sanders and Martin O’Malley.
  67. 2021 Thursday A:  In COVID-19 news, the widow of Larry King says her husband did not succumb to the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Next, states are lifting their coronavirus restrictions gradually due to the new variant from South Africa showing up in North Carolina with two cases.   Meanwhile, Virginia U.S. Mark Warner, Democrat, is observing COVID-19 quarantine protocols after being exposed to the disease.  Elsewhere, New York state Attorney General Leticia James is blasting Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo over covering up the number of deaths that occurred in the Empire State’s nursing homes, places where he sent COVID-19-infected patients to recuperate.  She says the governor had approximately 50-percent of the deaths while all the while blaming the federal government and doing chest-thumping by writing a book that made him out to be a hero.  Bon voyage, Governor “Killer” Cuomo.
  68. 2021 Thursday B: A recent poll says that a majority of Americans support first trimester abortion which begs the question as to WHY the Pro-Death movement demands abortions up to delivery and immediately after?  Answer: they profit off the sale of fetal body parts.  Evil.   Meanwhile, a McLaughlin poll says that Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney, Republican, has just 13-percent support for her to seek another term and a 62-percent disapproval rate.  Due to her voting to impeach Donald Trump a second time, GOP support for the out-of-touch congresswoman and GOP House leader has hit rock bottom.  Speaking of which, Florida GOP Congressman Matt Gaetz is going to host a massive Trump rally in the Equality State which is going to further strip her of any hope of re-election.   Elsewhere, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy- who is visiting with Donald Trump in Florida today- has begged his caucus to stop with the infighting.  Kevin, you need to wake up and slap your left-leaning RINO goobers back into line.  Do what Mitch does, moisten your finger, and hold it up high enough to feel which way the wind is blowing.
  69. 2021 Thursday C: President Joe Biden’s promised illegal alien family reunification task force has hit some hurdles and is temporarily delayed.  Next, we are told the Biden administration is following Trump’s lead in staying tough on communist China’s global expansionism plans.  You and Barack could have stopped the militarization of the South China Sea back in your second term and yet, you failed to do this.  Why?   Moving on, Joe Biden signs yet another executive order ending all new fracking permits on public lands which is going to kill thousands more jobs.  Speaking of the elimination of American jobs, Climate Adviser Gina McCarthy says ‘we’re not asking the American people for sacrifices with job losses, it’s just we must save the planet from its crisis.  Thus, millions of jobs- high-paying jobs, no less- are being stripped away in order to keep the American people dependent upon government for their sustenance.
  70. 2021 Thursday D: Speaking of lost jobs, although down from jobless claims of 914,000 the week before, first-time jobless claims are still high at 847,000.  Economists are celebrating that it’s less than last week but folks, as Joe Biden continues rampaging through his executive orders, millions more will be seeking unemployment in the subsequent weeks.  Meanwhile, 4th quarter GDP shows an annual rate of around 4-percent.  We shall see.  Elsewhere, following the ‘little guys’ showing up the BIG GUYS on the stock market what with billions going to virtual day traders who bet big on AMC, GameStop, and Blackberry, TD Ameritrade, Schwab, and Robin Hood have banned any additional trades from the ‘little guys.’  Is that the “American Way?”  WTF? 
  71. 2021 Thursday E: Russia reports that Alexei Navalny will remain in a Russian jail until his upcoming trial occurs.   Meanwhile, a Pakistani court orders the killer of journalist Daniel Pearl freed from prison.  Elsewhere, Reuters reports that Proud Boys leader Henry “Enrique” Tarrio has been a high-level FBI informant.  There goes his life.   Next, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton says ‘Joe Biden’s immigration policies are causing ‘real problems’ for the country.  Florida Republican Senator Rick Scott wants to know from President Biden exactly what those policies are, how they will be enforced, and any potential damage.
  72. 2021 Thursday F: It appears the FBI- now under the control of Joe Biden- is going after conservative citizen pundits and journalists.  Yesterday, Douglass Mackey of Florida was arrested by agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation for being little more than an alleged ‘Twitter troll.’  This is crazy.  What’s even crazier is that he was arrested for memes he made in 2016 so four years later- and with a change in the White House- the FBI has gone out and arrested him.  Why?  Meanwhile, in other craziness, the San Francisco school system is spending between $400,000-to-$1,000,000 to rename 44 public schools because of them being named for American presidents and historical figures all of whom have fallen into disfavor in the modern-day Cancel Culture.  Would the money not be better spent getting young people back to school rather than through stupid attempts at indoctrinating a vulnerable population?
  73. 2021 Thursday G: Here are today’s stats for the Wuhan Flu, planet first: 101,211,750 confirmed cases, +627,195, 2,183,269, confirmed deaths, +16,870, and 55,917,570 confirmed recoveries, +318,463.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 25,941,957 confirmed cases, up 172,233 from yesterday’s reporting, 435,432 confirmed deaths, UP 4,110, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP- UNKNOWN- same number as yesterday’s.  NOTE- in the White House NINE DAYS, apparently the U.S. will NO longer report the number of recoveries.  Shame on you, Chi-Com Joe.
  74. 2021 Thursday 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: 3,252,716 confirmed cases, 38,961 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,903 confirmed cases, 404 confirmed deaths (not updated in a week), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 309,604 confirmed cases, 4,294 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. real estate- Guam: currently, they have 8,537 confirmed cases, 130 confirmed deaths, and 6,707 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 621,590 confirmed cases, 4,605 confirmed deaths, and 545,342 confirmed recoveries.
  75. 2021 Thursday I:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,603.36, UP 300.19 points (+0.99%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,337.16, UP 66.56 points (+0.50%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,787.38, UP 36.61 points (+0.98%).  The price of GOLD is $1,841.80 per troy oz., +3.90 (+0.21%) while the price of SILVER is $26.60 per troy ounce, +0.678 (+2.62%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,080.20 per troy oz, +7.80 (+0.73%) while the price of COPPER is $3.57 per pound, -0.0035 (-0.10%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,310.50 per troy oz, -14.50 (-0.62%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.09 per barrel, -0.25 (-0.48%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.45 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.21.  Next, $1.00 U.S. = 0.000030 Bitcoin (BTC).
  76. 2021 Thursday J: The Department of Homeland Security continues warning of DOMESTIC TERRORISM which tells us they know something is coming around February 08 because they or their superiors in the Biden administration already have their agent provocateurs ready to go in new FALSE FLAG operations with which to crackdown on the American people even more.   The American people MUST BE VIGILANT for what the administration is going to loose on us.  Meanwhile, President Biden signs another executive order giving the Chi-Coms greater access to the U.S. electric grid.  NOT GOOD.  Next, as the COVID-19 Relief/Stimulus bill continues hitting roadblocks, President Biden is calling Republican senators to get them on his side.  WHY?  He’s adding $4 trillion in additional debt to what we already have.  Where’s the money originating?  Communist China?  You better believe it.  Elsewhere, the Pentagon is evaluating FEMA’s request for military aid in increasing the rollout of Chi-Vi vaccines. 
  77. 2021 Thursday K: A few days after announcing her bid for the governorship of Arkansas, Sarah Huckabee Sanders has raised $1 million.   That’s what happens when Donald Trump endorses you.  Next, after meeting with Mr. Trump in Florida, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy says the former president is onboard with retaking the House in 2022.  Speaking of Mr. Trump, a recent McLaughlin poll says that ‘canceling Trump’ is backfiring on those trying to enact it.  Elsewhere, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi and her chosen girl, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are fearful of their fellow House members.  Mumbles is seeking security funds so Democrats will feel ‘protected.’  What a bunch of losers.  False flag after false flag after false flag.   Meanwhile, in Wyoming at a huge pro-Trump rally, Florida Congresswoman Matt Gaetz rips into fellow Republican Congresswoman Liz Cheney.
  78. 2021 Thursday L: UN Secretary General Guterres calls for a “U.S.-People’s Republic of China reset.”   Meanwhile, as President Joe Biden continues scribbling executive orders, one of the ones today overturns the Mexico City Policy forbidding U.S. taxpayer dollars funding FOREIGN BABY CHOP SHOPS.  And this man claims to be a Catholic!  There was a time when popes excommunicated kings, where the hell is Pope Francis?   Next, the White House and Dems nix the GOP idea to break down the COVID-19 Relief/Stimulus Bill.  Sad.   Elsewhere, Senator Martha Blackburn, R-TN, accuses Joe Biden’s EPA nominee Michael Regan of having committed crimes.   Finally, Rush Limbaugh says the ‘GameStop issue is proof of everything being rigged for the elites in America.’
  79. 2021 Thursday M: Senator Dick Durbin, D-IL, throws ‘cold water’ on fellow Democratic Senator Tim Kaine’s idea of seeking censure for former President Donald J. Trump rather than moving ahead with a bogus second impeachment.   Elsewhere, a federal judge refuses bail for a so-called ‘QAnon shaman,’ aka ‘the horned guy’ (Jake Angeli) who sat in Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s seat in the U.S. House of Representatives on January 6, 2021, during the Antifa-led Capitol Hill Riots.  Meanwhile, tomorrow is the March for Live- Virtual- in troop-infested Washington, D.C.  Speaking of the U.S. Military (whom we love), the Pentagon says the Taliban is not living up to their promises in the Afghan peace process which means the U.S. will be in that war torn country for at least another four years.  Incredibly sad.  Finally, BIG OIL is seeking an alliance with Biofuels bigwigs as a means of preventing the Biden administration crushing them for good.
  80. 2021 Thursday N: As chef-author Bea O’Malley wrote in three posts between 01-15-to-01-17-2021 a couple of weeks ago, with the feeble Joe Biden administration in office, the Chi-Coms are upping the number of incursions into Taiwanese airspace because Beijing knows ‘Chi-Com Joe’ won’t come to the aid of Taipei.  The Biden administration claims they will defend Japan’s outer islands but we suspect that is a load of hooey, too.  Everyone in Asia- you are on your own.  Yes, times have changed without Trump in office.  Likewise, we expect Russia and Iran to start causing trouble in their neck of the woods soon.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Like most bands, dissension in the ranks can be problematic.  Following Michael Schenker Group’s tour of the Orient, the band returned to Europe and conducted a short tour there.  The manager of the band as well as drummer Cozy Powell thought they needed to beef up the vocalist department which meant Gary Barden should go and that perhaps David Coverdale of Deep Purple and Whitesnake would be a perfect fit.  Schenker being the boss, said, ‘nope,’ he had another choice and that choice was Graham Bonnet.  A short while later, both drummer Powell and keyboardist/guitarist/vocalist Paul Raymond decided it was time to jump ship, both being perpetual wanderers.  A retooled MSG- Michael Schenker (guitars), Graham Bonnet (vocals), and Chris Glen (bass) were joined by Ted McKenna (drums/percussion), and a session keyboardist, Tommy Eyre.  The resulting effort was “Assault Attack” which came out on October 12, 1982.  The album received favorable reviews and the band was back in action.  We hope you will seek this stunning album out and consider making it a part of your growing collection- you will be glad you did.

  47. 2018 Tuesday: In Saudi Arabia in the King Abdulaziz Camel Beauty Contest, 12 camels undergo disqualification after their owners ‘confessed’ to having used Botox on the lips of their animals.  Did the owners lose their heads, too?  No one knows.  Meanwhile, the ‘religion of peace’- Islam- strikes yet again, this time in Benghazi, Libya, as a double car bomb goes off in a busy district blowing 33 people to meet Mohammad and wounds dozens and dozens of other unsuspecting souls.  Will they ever stop?  Elsewhere, the U.S. Senate confirms Jerome Powell to be the next chair of the Federal Reserve by a vote of 84-13.
  48. 2019 Wednesday: Citing the shutdown of the federal government, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi disinvites President Donald J. Trump from giving his SOTU address.  He did it about one month later after the government reopened for business.  Meanwhile, furloughed federal workers swamp the Senate building to protest the ongoing federal government shutdown.  Who let them in?  Where was security? 
  49. 2019 Wednesday A: Elsewhere, the criminal government of Venezuela accuses the Trump administration of ‘engineering a coup’ against the ‘kind, gentle, and loving’ administration of thug President Nicolas Maduro.  Simultaneously, opposition leader Juan Guaidó takes the oath of office as Venezuela’s next president because he did WIN the election until he ‘didn’t.’  The fact that the U.S., Canada, and other Western nations recognize him as the president doesn’t mean s**t as long as the Chi-Coms, the Russians, the Cubans, and the Iranians continue their support of the Maduro regime.
  50. 2020 Thursday: Fighting continues in Syria as rebels attempt to storm rebel positions in Idlib Province.  Russian and Syrian troops throw the rebels back, killing at least 50 Islamists dead and another 90 wounded while the Syrian government forces lost about half that number.   Meanwhile, in Wuhan, China, nearly 850 cases of the coronavirus with at least 25 fatalities are counted.  Singapore declares its first case of the COVID-19.  The virus is spreading.

Trump will commence on February 8 even though Chief Justice John Roberts says he won’t preside over it (at least until Antifa mobs show up outside his home and ‘persuade him’ otherwise).
  52. 2021 Saturday A: The National Republican Congressional Committee has thrown the 10 House members who voted to impeach President Donald J. Trump to the wolves saying they will NOT intervene in Republican primaries in 2022.  Justice is heading your way, you worthless scumbags.  Meanwhile, for some inexplicable reason, ‘President’ Joe Biden trashes President Trump’s executive order slashing drug prices for the American people.  WTF did you do something like this you decrepit old POS.  What the hell is wrong with that?  Elsewhere, Doug Schoen, now with Newsmax TV, says, “More legislation and less executive orders,” ‘President’ Biden.   Finally, in Moscow, Russian police arrest 2,1000 people demanding the immediate release of Alexei Navalny, opposition leader towards thug Vladimir Putin.
  53. 2021 Saturday B: The ACLU is demanding that all states add an “X” to their official documents when it comes to listing one’s sex.  What a load of crap, there are TWO biological sexes, period.  For people that claim to listen to science it’s shocking that they pick and choose what ‘science’ with which to listen.  Stupid.  Elsewhere, the NFL- thumping its chest with pride- is going to give 7,500 Super Bowl LV tickets to vaccinated healthcare workers.  How noble of you.  Meanwhile, also in a moment of chest-thumping, Twitter says that following Inauguration violence across the country, it’s suspending the accounts of Antifa.  Wow.  Really big of you!  Finally, in South Dakota, unemployment has fallen to 3-percent or lower thanks to the state’s decision to keep everything up-and-running.  In places such as New York that closed everything down, the ignoramus Governor Andrew Cuomo is demanding ‘President’ Joe Biden give him $15 billion in bailout funds.  We hope YOU go down, you homicidal POS.
  54. 2021 Saturday C: COVID-19 Daily Update:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 98,288,147 confirmed cases, +541,350, 2,109,758, confirmed deaths, +12,495, and 54,255,414 confirmed recoveries, +358,448.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 25,109,272 confirmed cases, up 247,884 from yesterday’s reporting, 419,058 confirmed deaths, UP 5,799, and 10,974,161 confirmed recoveries, UP 128,723.  We learn that famed TV personality Larry King died at age 87 due to COVID-19. 
  55. 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: 3,140,928 confirmed cases, 36,326 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases (again, Hawaii is no longer reporting their case numbers in more than a week), 332 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 302,546 confirmed cases, 4,178 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Alaska: currently, they have 52,901 confirmed cases, 254 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 593,578 confirmed cases, 4,326 confirmed deaths, and 512,469 confirmed recoveries.   
  56. 2021 Saturday E: Stay tuned for tonight’s Super Lotto Draw #3528 with a jackpot of $14 million up for grabs and for the Powerball Drawing #814 with a $20 million pot on the line. First up, we have the Super Lotto numbers- 15, 25, 37, 43, 45, and Mega 12.  Out of 143,211 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO MEGA for a prize of $24,588.  One winning ticket was sold at the Safeway in Newark, CA, 94560 while the other was sold at the 7/11 at Los Gatos, CA, 95030.  Here are the numbers for the Powerball- 05, 08, 17, 27, 28, and Powerball 14.  Powerball for a prize of $33,827 apiece.  Six of the winning tickets were sold in (1) San Francisco Mart I, San Francisco, CA 94116; (2) Shell, Baker, CA 92309; (3) ARCO AM/PM in Bellflower, CA, 90706; (4) Desert Smoke Shop, Desert Hot Springs, CA, 92240; (5) 7-11, San Diego, CA, 92123; (6) Zoo Liquor and Gas, Fresno, CA, 93728.
  57. 2021 Saturday F: Democrats are seeking to rein in expectations over their upcoming ‘immigration bill.’  What?  We thought the 30-50 million illegals infesting our country are getting immediate citizenship and everything that goes with it.  Meanwhile, Dems are also saying that making federal election standards a top priority- what, NO MAIL IN BALLOTS?  Speaking of Democrats, the Chi-Coms are singing a different tune now, claiming that ‘no one on their end was seeking meetings with ‘President’ Joe Biden or members of his administration.  Of course they were and still are- everyone knows it.  They are Joe’s masters so they want immediate payback for having put him in office (or so we allege). Elsewhere, Steve Forbes tells Newsmax that an ‘economic crisis’ is coming soon.  You had better believe it.

  56. 2021 Friday A: And so it begins: Federal prosecutors seek Donald Trump Jr. for ‘questioning.’   Questioning for what, pray tell?  Meanwhile, a Trump deputy in the White House is reassuring staffers in the era of Cancel Culture that they will be ‘okay,’ even as Harvard is on the edge of bowing to its students and stripping Kayleigh McEnany of her advanced law degree.  Next, Trump campaign lawyer Jenna Ellis tells Newsmax TV that ‘this impeachment is no different’ and that it’s an ‘abuse of the U.S. Constitution.’  Meanwhile, Ric Grenell tells Newsmax TV that the ‘D.C. media has switched from the news to advocacy for all left-wing causes.’  Rudy Giuliani believes it’s all a scheme to prevent #45 from running for office again.  Finally, also to Newsmax TV, Dick Morris- famed political strategist and consultant- says that ‘impeachment and the 25th Amendment are watering down the presidency.’  NO- the AICPENDBLOG.COM believes the Democrats and the RINOS are trying to replace the presidency with a parliamentary system in which the party in power chooses who will be the figurehead.
  57. 2021 Friday B: New York State news- a new bill in Albany would make it illegal for New Yorkers to own or buy body armor.  Why?  Elsewhere in New York City, we now learn that thanks to the criminal mismanagement by Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo and addle-brained NYC Mayor Bill Di Blasio, more than 372,000 private businesses have been destroyed in the Big Apple, never to return, many of them in professional foodservice and hospitality. 
  58. 2021 Friday C: Due to ‘security threats’ in Washington, D.C., the Inauguration Day rehearsal for ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden has been pushed back to Monday. We learn that J-Lo and Lady Gaga are going to be among the left-wing performers celebrating the ‘victory’ of the incoming senile 46th ‘president.’  Next, according to Rush Limbaugh, the feds are rushing 25,000 troops into Washington, D.C. to prevent against the expected (Antifa-caused) violence on Wednesday, January 20.  (According to the talk show mega-giant, this is more troops than are currently station in BOTH Iraq and Afghanistan).  Speaking of the riots, the FBI reports that the Capitol Hill mobs planned to assassinate leaders.  Again, this sounds like Antifa and BLM human garbage, not Trump supporters.  Meanwhile, Mr. Biden chooses former FDA Chief David Kessler to head Operation Warp Speed. 
  59. 2021 Friday D: In a peculiar move, Oklahoma Senator James Lankford, a Republican, apologizes to black Tulsans for having opposed the certification of “President-elect Pro-China Joe” Biden.  Why?  What was racist about questioning the certification?  Dimwit. Next, the media appears to have twisted the remarks of Senator Tommy Tuberville, R-Alabama, in suggesting a delay on Biden’s certification.   
  60. 2021 Friday E: Elsewhere, a new poll shows that a vast majority of Republicans and swing state voters favor hiring U.S. workers before hiring illegal aliens.  Next, the Wyoming Republican Party is unhappy with Congresswoman Liz Cheney, one of their own, who was among the 10 RINO Republicans to vote for the SECOND IMPEACHMENT OF PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP.  (Note- those 10 representatives and four of their counterparts in the U.S. Senate- Lisa Murkowski, RINO-Alaska, Ben Sasse, RINO-Nebraska, Pat Toomey, RINO-Pennsylvania, and Mitt Romney, RINO-Utah, we believe will make it onto the list of nominees for the Fourth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award to be awarded in January 2022).
  61. 2021 Friday F: Fossilized ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden announces his COVID-19/Stimulus Plan: first, $20 billion for a national vaccination program.  Second, $50 billion for expanded testing, treatment, and tracing programs.  Third, $2,000 stimulus checks for all illegal aliens and American citizens.  Fourth and final, $15 minimum wage for federal entry level jobs.  Economist Stephen Moore says that the final peg of Beijing Joe’s stimulus plan will cost ‘4 million additional American jobs.’  WTF?  Next, the U.S. Secret Service is telling its officers in the run-up to Inauguration Day to remain ‘professional’ and ‘non-partisan.’  Meanwhile, the IRS announces it’s behind on 7 million tax returns from last year all because of COVID-19.
  62. 2021 Friday G: Russia cites the U.S. withdrawal from the Open Skies Treaty as its reason for leaving the agreement.  In Great Britain, it would appear that Mask Sharia is on the way there as the British government says, ‘people may have to wear masks forever.’  Wow.  Coming soon to a country near you?  Elsewhere, Dunkin’ Donuts has created a new biodegradable straw.  Congratulations.  Next, a Mickey Mantle baseball card sold for $5.2 million setting an all-time record.  Elsewhere, Joanne Roberts, widow of Mr. Rogers, dies at age 92.  Meanwhile, President Trump plans to hold an event as outgoing president on Inauguration Day at same time senile Old Joe is scheduled to place his quivering hand atop a Bible.
  63. 2021 Friday H: Here are the numbers for the COVID-19 global pandemic, the planet first: 93,275,676 confirmed cases, +424,993, 2,000,905, confirmed deaths, +12,615, and 55,500,681 confirmed recoveries, +271,674.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 23,489,378 confirmed cases, up 108,386 from yesterday’s reporting, 390,378 confirmed deaths, UP 1,434, and 10,262,463 confirmed recoveries, UP 28,136.
  64. 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: 2,898,041 confirmed cases, 32,291 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases, 318 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 288,127 confirmed cases, 3,949 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Idaho: currently, they have 153,506 confirmed cases, 1,593 confirmed deaths, and 69,460 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 535,049 confirmed cases, 3,910 confirmed deaths, and 447,076 confirmed recoveries.   
  65. 2021 Friday J:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,814.26, DOWN 177.26 points (-0.57%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,998.50, DOWN 114.14 points (-0.87%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,768.25, DOWN 27.29 points (-0.72%).  The price of GOLD is $1,827.70 per troy oz., -2.20 (-0.12%) while the price of SILVER is $24.83 per troy ounce, -0.036 (-0.14%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,078.70 per troy oz, -11.20 (-1.03%) while the price of COPPER is $3.50 per pound, -0.001 (-0.03%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,395.10 per troy oz, -28.20 (-1.16%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.04 per barrel, -0.32 (-0.61%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.48 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Hong Kong dollars equals 7.75.  In other economic news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue says the government ‘declared martial law by imposing the harsh COVID-19 lockdowns on the American people.’  How right you are, sir!
  66. 2021 Friday K: Senator Lindsey Graham, RINO-SC, says that the Mueller probe into Trump-Russia collusion- Crossfire Hurricane- was ‘the most incompetent’ and ‘most corrupt’ investigation ever conducted by the FBI and the Department of Justice.  Meanwhile, Vice President Mike Pence speaks with Vice President-elect “Kooky Kamala” Harris on the phone.  The incoming VP says she hopes for a ‘peaceful transition of power.’  Next, NY prosecutors drag former Trump attorney Michael Cohen in to answer questions about the 45th president’s finances.    Speaking of losers like Michael Cohen, Lt. Gov. Duncan of the Peach State snivels to reporters that the ‘Georgia statehouse is absolutely less safe now because of Donald Trump.’  Lt. Gov. Duncan- you should not have worked to throw the election to “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his Chi-Com masters who now are YOUR masters.
  67. 2021 Friday L: Currently, the feds are investigating 37 people for their part in the deaths that occurred during the Capitol Hill Riots of January 6.  Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, she whose pendulous breasts droop down to her waist, says, ‘there will be prosecutions for ALL House members who aided the (Antifa/Black Lives Matter) ‘Trump mob’ in storming the building.  We guess this means that YOU, Madam Speaker, will stand at the head of the line seeing as how YOU and ONLY YOU are in charge of the Capitol Hill PD.  Steven Sund, outgoing Capitol Hill police chief begged for help on at least SIX occasions with no help coming which means YOU stopped help from coming which means BLOOD is on YOUR HANDS.  We await YOUR prosecution! 
  68. 2021 Friday M: President Donald J. Trump orders U.S. Military Command for the Middle East to incorporate Israel into its organization so as to hasten Arab-Israeli military cooperation in defending against the Iranian scum.   Meanwhile, Apple CEO Tim Cook says that ‘Parler might make it back online provided they do something about moderating (censoring) content.  Elsewhere, the National Rifle Association files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy protections.  Finally, Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas rips ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden for his plagiarizing yet again someone else’s work- the COVID-19 Relief Bill. 
  69. 2021 Friday N: Elsewhere, the Atlanta Falcons hire Tennessee Titans OC Arthur Smith as their next head coach.   Note- we would love to see Matt Ryan make it to another super bowl.    Speaking of the NFL, two games tomorrow in the Divisional Round- L.A. Rams @ Green Bay Packers at 1:35 P.M. and Baltimore
  70. Ravens @ the Buffalo Bills @ 5:15 P.M.  Then on Sunday, we have two more games- Cleveland Browns @ Kansas City Chiefs @ 12:05 P.M. and Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ New Orleans Saints @ 3:40 P.M.
  71. 2021 Friday O: Here are the results for tonight’s massive Mega Millions Draw #1625 with a pot of around $725 million at stake: 03, 11, 12, 38, 43, and Mega 15.  Out of 643,493 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers BUT NO MEGA for a prize of $1,225,193.  Meanwhile, Alex Azar, Health and Human Services secretary offers his resignation, citing the Capitol Hill Riots as his reason for leaving the administration.   Elsewhere, we learn today that Bill Gates of Microsoft fame is the largest owner of private farmland in the United States with 242,000 acres.  Finally, in the waning days of the Trump administration, an asteroid the size of the Empire State Building, about 4.4 million miles from the Earth which is about 18 times the average distance between our planet and the moon.
  72. 2021 Friday P: The government of Morocco awards President Donald J. Trump the Order of Mohammad, the nation’s highest decoration, for his work in creating a framework of peace for Arab nations and Israel.  The ceremony occurred at the White House in a private ceremony.  Congratulations, Mr. President.  Let’s see if your successor keeps the framework of the Abraham Accords in place or tosses them on the rubbish heap and returns to brown-nosing the Palestinians.  Elsewhere, One America News reports growing evidence that foreign nations such as communist China interfered in our elections, NOT just in the 2020 Presidential Election but also in several state elections.  WHY aren’t the liberals braying about ‘ELECTION INTERFERENCE?’  Because we believe Beijing and their bought-and-paid-for stooges in the Democratic Party and among the RINO wing of the GOP conspired with them to deny President Trump his much-deserved second term.   Meanwhile, Norway reports 11 deaths connected to the vaccine for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Once again, UFO went into the studio and delivered another powerhouse effort- “Force It”- on July 15, 1975.  The lineup featured Phil Mogg (vocals), Andy Parker (drums), Michael Schenker (guitars), and Pete Way (bass).  Famed bassist for Ten Years After- Leo Lyons- was the producer while his band mate, Chick Churchill played keyboards, the first time ever on a UFO record.  The cover was somewhat suggestive and created a buzz more so in the United States than anywhere else in the world and added to album sales.  “Shoot-Shoot” and “Let It Roll” became fan favorites in their live shows which is enough for us to say: seek this one out NOW-you will be glad you did.  Enjoy!

  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.

  55. 2016 Saturday:  Saudi Arabia sends 47 terrorists to the chopping block including a pro-Iranian Shia cleric Nimr al-Nimr.  You must do what you must do.
  56. 2017 Monday:  Although House Speaker Paul “RINO” Ryan, R-WI, and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA, said they had no knowledge of the move, the GOP House majority votes to gut the Office of Congressional Ethics.  In so doing, it will strip the entity of its ability to investigate congressional members accused of wrongdoing.  Meanwhile, President-elect Donald J. Trump is expected to name former aide to Ronal Reagan Robert Lighthizer as head of the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative.
  57. 2018 Tuesday: After North Korean thug dictator Kim Jong Un says the ‘nuclear button is always on my desk,’ President Trump says that ‘his button is much bigger.’  Meanwhile, Venezuela- an oil-rich nation- finds itself with NO gasoline.  Ah, the joys of Marxism…
  58. 2019 Wednesday: Loads of new House members are taking their oaths today, most of them Democrats as they won 40 seats on Election Day last November.  Losers such as Rashida Tlaib and fellow anti-Semite Ilhan Omar as well as the Baby Evita- Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ayanna Pressley- the four women who will form the (Marxist) Squad are taking their oaths and will become instant thorns in the side of drooling House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi.  Meanwhile, as the partial ‘government shutdown’ continues into its 13th day, the Dems plan to vote on a funding bill that won’t fund the southern border wall.  Way to go, Dems, you love them illegal aliens.  Elsewhere, as tensions continue to rise in the African nation of Mali, gunmen murder 37 citizens in the street.  Sounds like Islamists to us…
  59. 2020 Thursday: Since the Iranians are causing so much trouble in neighboring Iraq such as trying to storm the U.S. Embassy in Iraq, the U.S. whacks Iranian thug General Qassim Soleimani as he heads for a car at the Baghdad airport, having just landed to direct more terror attacks at U.S. targets.  Good, send this POS to hell.  Of course, Tehran goes apoplectic over this so-called ‘outrage.’  Meanwhile, newly released emails show that ‘President Donald J. Trump purposefully withheld military aid to the Ukraine over his demands for an accounting of the criminal activities the Biden Cartel Crime Family had been doing in that country.  Elsewhere, Democratic candidate seeking the 2020 presidential nomination for his party- Julian Castro, a small-time Texas mayor and former secretary of HUD- drops out of the running today.  Good.  He never had a chance.   
  60. 2021 Saturday: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 84,517,989 confirmed cases, +593,048, 1,834,586, confirmed deaths, +8,410, and 47,548,752 confirmed recoveries, +286,928.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 20,596,260 confirmed cases, up 217,572 from yesterday’s reporting, 353,309 confirmed deaths, UP 2,599, and 9,223,561 confirmed recoveries, UP 53,467.
  61. 2021 Saturday A: 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: 2,345,909 confirmed cases, 26,357 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 21,807 confirmed cases, 289 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 251,585 confirmed cases, 3,523 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Colorado: currently, they have 339,172 confirmed cases, 4,936 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 434,799 confirmed cases, 3,392 confirmed deaths, and 381,714 confirmed recoveries.
  62. 2021 Saturday B: The home of House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell were both vandalized with the heads of pigs and painted hateful epithets.  One of the slogans painted on the home of the Senate majority leader was ‘where’s my money?’  Now that’s hilarious.  Good question, though- why is $762 billion going abroad and only $174 going to Americans?  This is bullshit and everyone knows it so folks, paint away, paint away and continue throwing those hog snouts on their front porches.
  63. 2021 Saturday C: In Texas, the state’s supreme court sides with the attorney-general of the state, Ken Paxton, in his battle to keep restaurants and other businesses open during the Chi-Com Virus Crisis.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump is unhappy that the Department of Justice waved off the lawsuit brought by Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert to entice Vice President Mike Pence to overthrow the results of the fraudulent elections in six Democrat-controlled states.  We hope he will because if Democrats steal this election, they will steal every election.
  64. 2021 Saturday D: Chi-Coms in Beijing warn of ‘consequences’ over the New York Stock Exchange delisting some of their Chi-Com corporations and companies.  Screw them.  Meanwhile, a judge in the UK announces he will rule soon on the U.S. demand for the extradition of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.  Most are hoping he will receive a pardon for his offenses in the U.S. Elsewhere, we learn that U.S. airlines have lost around $35 billion in lost revenues thanks once again to the Chi-Com virus.  We hope to see the case the globe launches against the communist Chinese at the World Court over the destruction they’ve caused by letting this virus loose on the world.  Finally, a federal appeals court backs President Donald J. Trump’s order denying entry to illegal aliens who have no proof of healthcare coverage.
  65. 2021 Saturday E: President Donald Trump vetoes a driftnet ban off the course of California.  He also expresses that thanks to him, he was able to denude the Affordable Care Act- aka Obamacare- of the mandate that Americans hated.  Of course, should “Pro-China Joe” Biden and “Kooky Kamala” Harris become our next president and vice president, they are going to slap that sucker back on the ACA and full-time employment will return to 28 hours per week or less.  Something to think about.  Meanwhile, incoming Republican Congresswoman Kat Cammack, 3rd congressional district of Florida, says she plans to put an Israeli flag on her office door which just so happens to be next to the office of lunatic, pro-jihadi nut Rashida Tlaib.  Now that’s something we all want to see!
  66. 2021 Saturday F: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Super Lotto Draw #3522 with a jackpot of $8 million on the line: 11, 19, 35, 40, 46, and Mega 18.  The highest winner- out of 97,482 winning tickets- was one person who had FIVE numbers but no Mega for a prize of $34,825.  The winning ticket was sold at Speedway in Wildomar, California, 92595.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #808 with a jackpot of $384 million up for grabs: 03, 04, 11, 41, 67, and Powerball 05.  The highest winners were FIVE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $16,047 apiece.
  67. 2021 Saturday G: Friends, stick around to discover whatever Beijing and their stooges in the Democratic Party are up today- we all know they’re up to no good so find out with us.  We thank you…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Sadly, with the growth of conglomerate mega-record companies as well as computers, digital music, and MP-3 players, music underwent a transition that made it difficult for older artists to get their music to their fans and to the public.  Peter Wolf released his next solo effort, “Sleepless,” on September 10, 2002, and folks, with a load of gifted musicians joining him, this is an amazing album.  You will find Mick Jagger and Keith Richards here as well as Magic Dick and loads of others.  We love this album and know that you will, too, so please seek it out wherever you shop for the absolute best in rock music- you will be so glad you did- no doubts about what we are saying, period.

  60. 2020 Friday A: ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe” Biden says he encourages ALL Americans to wear masks for 100 days.  Uh, okay, Joe.  Speaking of masks, the so-called ‘president-elect’ offers a job to Dr. Tony Fauci who leaps upon it the moment it’s offered.  What a sycophant.  Meanwhile, the GOP warms to the prospect of a bi-partisan stimulus bill with which to aid those affected by the Chinese Virus lockdowns and restrictions.  Speaking of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, Fox News reports that far-left pundit Juan Williams is suffering from the affects of this insidious Chi-Com disease.

  63. 2020 Friday D: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 65,760,928 confirmed cases, +649,062, 1,515,990, confirmed deaths, +11,687, and 42,248,499 confirmed recoveries, +396,600.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 14,463,929 confirmed cases, up 238,540 from yesterday’s reporting, 281,798 confirmed deaths, UP 2,874, and 6,878,662 confirmed recoveries, UP 53,323.

  65. 2020 Friday F: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 30,218.16, UP 248.74 points (+0.83%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  12,464.63, UP 87.05 points (+0.70%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,699.12, UP 32.40 points (+0.88%).  Price of GOLD: $1,842.00 per troy oz., +2.00 (+0.11%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $24.32 per troy oz., +0.067 (+0.28%).  Price of PLATINUM: $1,070.20 per troy oz., -2.60 (-0.24%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,357.80 per troy oz., +39.90 (+1.72%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.53 per #, +0.0045 (+0.13%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $46.09, -0.17 (-0.37%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.53 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.82 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.88 Afghan Afghani.  In other economic news, last month, the U.S. added 245,000 new jobs, below expectations.  Unemployment dropped to 6.7-percent, still high, but given the fact that we are in a war with the Chi-Coms, the Canucks, the Iranians, the Russians, and the dimwits in the Democratic Party, it’s NOT so bad.
  66. 2020 Friday G: Stick around for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1613 with a jackpot of $264 million up for grabs.  Here are tonight’s numbers: 03, 19, 24, 44, 50, and Mega 08.  Out of 100,494 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had four numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $28,863.
  67. 2020 Friday H: A federal court of appeals rules in favor of the Trump administration redeploying Defense Department funds into erecting the southern border wall that separates civilization from the uncivilized.   Another judge rules against the Trump administration’s termination of DACA by ordering it restored.  This is the program the Obama administration sold as a ‘humane act’ because it provided children brought to this country by their illegal alien parents with an avenue towards legality and eventual citizenship.
  68. 2020 Friday I: As you know, we keep a close eye on the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party stooges here in the U.S.  Talk about a Fifth Column!  The Democrats fit that bill to a tee, thanks to their constant pushing of socialism, socialism, and more socialism.  Stick around to discover what they’ve done today…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Say what you will about aged rockers- rock and roll either makes you a long-lived legend a la Mick Jones- or it takes you out in a blaze of glory at age 27 like Jim Morrison, Brian Jones, Ron “Pigpen” McKernan, Janis Joplin, Alan Wilson, or some slightly older guys like Keith Moon and the like.  Foreigner’s current lineup, much younger than legendary axe man Jones delivers a red-hot set of fiery renditions of tunes that led to the sales of 80 million and still counting albums.  I mean, how many bands still are able to continue generating a positive cash flow yet that’s what these guys do.  Fans love the album like we do which is why we encourage everyone to seek this one out and add it to your growing collection.  Lou Gramm- who?  Please seek out “The Greatest Hits of Foreigner- Live in Concert,” a superb album that came out on December 22, 2018- you will be glad you did.

[xi] Although known as “The Deporter-in-Chief,” Barack Obama’s administration combined the numbers of those turned back at the southern border with apprehensions within the country, thereby deflating his record on deportations.  Truthfully, he did as little as possible to protect illegal aliens.  Shame on him.

[xiv] Harvard Law Professor.

[xv] George Washington University Law Professor. Prof. Turley is the ONLY member of this fraudulent panel who actually admitted that he did NOT vote for President Trump while the others hemmed and hawed over their failure to be just as blunt that they, too, did not vote for the 45th president.
