Sounds like the work of the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam.
- 2008 Friday: The price of crude oil hits an astounding $125.98 per barrel. This is not good for the economies of the world. Meanwhile, Hezbollah continues a powerplay in Lebanon in general and in Beirut in particular as they continue battling with government forces.

- 2010 Sunday: Somali pirates take to the high seas once again and capture a German oil tanker plying the waters off East Africa. Seems like it’s getting about time to go in there and crucify these scumbags the way Caesar did pirates in the Mediterranean when he was a young man. How about the modern equivalent? Let’s use neutron bombs on these bastards.
- 2011 Monday: Pakistani Prime Minister Yousef Raza Gillani launches an investigation to determine how Osama bin Laden lived undetected in Abbottabad. (Editor’s note- we all know the truth of the matter; the Pakistani government gave him refuge). Meanwhile, the Chi-Com Yuan reaches its highest level next to the U.S. dollar.

- 2015 Saturday: After a period of 42 days with NO new Ebola cases, which is twice the normal quarantine rate, the UN Health Organization declares the outbreak of the dreaded virus in the African nation of Liberia to be at an end.

- 2017 Tuesday: President Donald J. Trump abruptly fired worthless FBI Director James Comey, ousting the nation’s top law enforcement official in the midst of an FBI investigation into whether Trump’s campaign had ties to Russia’s meddling in the election that sent him to the White House. Two years later, it appears that Comey was involved in a scheme the Democrats and the Deep State engineered first to prevent the election of Trump and then to remove him via a coup. We are awaiting Comey to be charged along with James Clapper, John Brennan, Sally Yates, Peter Strzok and his girlfriend Lisa Page, and numerous other scumbags involved in this ever-evolving crime. Meanwhile, Governor Ahok of Jakarta, a Christian, is given a two-year sentence for ‘blasphemy’ seeing as how Indonesia is a predominantly Muslim nation.
- 2018 Wednesday: According to On This Day, the Supreme Court of India has some major criticism for the government department responsible for archaeological preservation because they did little to nothing to prevent the discoloration of the iconic Taj Mahal- the only ‘wonder’ left of the ‘Seven Wonders of the World’- as well as the build-up of green slime in the historic site. Meanwhile, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and the Iranian people go ballistic after President Trump declares the U.S. is pulling out of the multinational nuclear deal signed during the Obama administration. Screw ‘em!
- 2019 Thursday: Off the coast of Tunisia, a boatload of migrants fleeing Libya capsizes, drowning at least 65 of the passengers, according to the United Nations. The best way to avoid mishaps such as this is migrants: stay where you are. Elsewhere, the U.S. Navy seizes a North Korean freighter in the East China Sea, loaded with coal for Indonesia which is against the sanctions imposed upon the former for its nuclear programs and weapons tests.
- 2020 Saturday: Around the world, the “Chinese Curse,” aka COVID-19, aka the “Chinese Virus,” aka the Wuhan Virus Crisis, aka the Wuhan Flu, aka the Kung Flu, continues claiming lives and destroying economies and yet, communist China protests anyone calling it the “Chinese Virus,” which it is so Beijing, STFU. Confirmed cases around the world stand at 4,004,224, confirmed deaths stand at 277,860, and confirmed recoveries at 1,348,288. In the United States, confirmed cases are 1,138,643, confirmed deaths are 79,373, and confirmed recoveries are 189,912 (which is an incomplete number as the liberal states tend to keep this statistic close to their vests so they can continue this unconstitutional lockdown order a la Michigan and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. California acknowledges 64,532 confirmed cases and confirmed deaths at 2,630 BUT NO NUMBER of confirmed recoveries. Meanwhile, Hawaii claims 629 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 548 confirmed recoveries. Up in Washington state where one of our colleagues lives, works, and writes, the number of confirmed cases is 16,388 with confirmed deaths at 905. Sadly, Gov. Jay Inslee won’t release the numbers of confirmed recoveries. Moving on to communist China, Beijing continues to wail they have 88,423 (same number) confirmed cases what with 4,633 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries. My, my, my, why continue to lie, People’s Republic of China?
- 2020 Saturday A: In Tullahoma, Oklahoma, famed rock-and-roller, Little Richard, died at age 87. Little Richard[vi] was famous for so many songs but “Lucille,” “Tutti-Frutti,” and “Good Golly, Miss Molly” are the ones that leap out. Check him out.

- 2021 Sunday A: Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 279,996 chi-vi deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.

Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 416,317 confirmed cases, 5,626 confirmed deaths, and 202,588 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s recovery numbers). Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Virgin Islands, yet another place the Democrats will want to transform into a state after D.C., Puerto Rico, and Guam become states: they have 3,210 confirmed cases, 27 confirmed deaths, and 3,095 confirmed recoveries.[ix] Meanwhile, states are turning down does of the Chi-Com vaccine as demand for them plummets.

- 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– The Biden regime has hired 17 new immigration judges to staff the overflowing immigration courts. These very same judges were offered the same roles under the Donald J. Trump administration.

- 2021 Sunday G: Political News I– Rep. Andy Biggs, 5th congressional district, says that new evidence shows the FBI has been lying to Congress. We’ve known that for a long time. Next, Senator Ben Sasse, RINO-NE, is going to introduce legislation that will permit the repurposing of unemployment benefits into hiring bonuses to get everyone to return to work instead of sitting at home and being good little socialists, drawing benefits. Next, the NCAA is in discussions with the Department of Justice (WHY?) over the new plan of allowing student athletes to make money from their names, likenesses, and apparel. They should have been able to have done this for a long time.
- 2021 Sunday H: Political News II– The U.S. Department of Justice is preparing to make a ruling as to whether criminals sent home to house arrest during the Chi-Com pandemic will have to return to prison or not. Spoiler alert- YOU KNOW the DOJ will cut them all loose. Just saying. In other news, NASA is blasting the Chi-Coms over their unprofessional behavior in being unable to control the re-entry of their 22-ton Long March rocket that crashed just west of the Maldives into the Indian Ocean early this morning. The flipping Chi-Coms. Like the Soviets, communist simply do not give a flying f**k about the lives and property of other human beings.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
The Beach Boys are one of those American success stories, one that NO one at the time had any idea as how far it would go. Dennis Wilson loved surfing and brought that love of riding the waves home with him. Brother Brian- inspired by his brother started writing tunes. A talented, musical family, Brian played bass, piano, and sang while older brother Dennis played drums and could sing. Youngest brother Carl could play guitar, and their sad started seeing money signs although he was abusive as hell and put them down every opportunity he had. Mike Love joined his cousins on vocals while neighbor David Marks joined on rhythm guitar and vocals. Brian could hear all the harmonies in his head and soon the group began to form and chose the name, ‘the Beach Boys.’ Their first album, “Surfin’ Safari” came out on October 01, 1962, and it set the world on fire. One of the oldest American rock groups, the Beach Boys touched off the California sun and surf craze. The songs were pretty simple but hey, it was the early 1960s, the Vietnam War was not yet in motion, anything was possible and so it was. Thus, we have some classic tunes on this album, “Surfin’ Safari,” “409,” and “Surfin’.” Great music if there ever was which set the world ablaze and put the members of the band on one of the all-time crazy roller-coaster rides. We hope you will seek this album out and consider adding it to your growing collection. You will be glad you did.
