216. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, AUGUST 04, 2022

2022 Thursday: Hmmm, so-o-o, Joe ‘Slobbering’ Biden whacked Ayman Al-Zawahiri, the Number Two of al-Qaida, longtime confidant, physician, and amigo of dead terrorist Osama bin Laden. A somewhat coherent Biden stumbled to the microphones this past Monday and stuttered out his message of a ‘successful drone strike’ on an old terrorist no one has seen in about a decade- if not longer.

  55. 2010 Wednesday: Officials estimate that 28,000 people have died from Mexican drug violence since December 2006.  One might question as to WHY the United Nations has not requested troops from across the world to go into that godforsaken country and eliminate the narcoterrorists?

  61. 2016 Thursday: CBS News reports that candidate Donald Trump’s behavior on the campaign trail has been ‘so bizarre’ that many are left to wonder if he is a plant by the Hillary campaign or a secret agent in the employ of Russia.  What a load of bogus BS.  This supports the proven theory that the Deep State, the Democratic Party, and their Fake News allies are in cahoots not only to push haggard Hillary into the White House but to bamboozle the American people into believing their phony propaganda.  We shall see who wins in November.
  62. 2017 Friday: German supermarket Aldi pulls all shell eggs from the Netherlands from its shelves after the discovery of the chemical- fipronil- is found in them.  Pest control companies use fipronil to kill insects so WTF?  Elsewhere, in a federal court in Brooklyn, New York, former boy wonder pharmaceutical CEO Martin Shkreli- a loser who jacked up the price of a generic drug to the point no one could afford it- undergoes conviction on three counts of securities fraud.
  63. 2018 Saturday: In what many believe to be a setup, Venezuelan thug President Nicolas Maduro survives an assassination attempt, carried out by a drone while the communist POS was at a military review.  The event was captured on live TV.  Even better, the former bus-driving thug Maduro blames the assassination attempt on Venezuelan exiles hiding in neighboring Colombia and on their handlers as well as the Venezuelan ‘mafia’ supposedly living in Florida.  Dude, STFU.
  64. 2019 Sunday: The Central Bank of China devalues its currency below the normal 7-1 ratio with the U.S. dollar for the first time in more than a decade, due in part to the trade tariffs President Donald J. Trump is using to force the communists to the bargaining table and trade talks.  Meanwhile, in what many believe to be a terrorist attack conducted by ISIS, a car bomb explodes in Cairo, Egypt, killing 20 and injuring another 47 people.  Scumbags.  Elsewhere, Connor Bettis- a POS with a gun- hits the bar district in Dayton, Ohio, and kills 9 people and wounds another 27 before law enforcement arrives on scene and shoots the punk dead.
  65. 2020 Tuesday: In Beirut, Lebanon, a tremendous blast felt as far as Cyprus, rips part of the port apart, killing between 75-100 people and injuring another 2,700-3,500.  Speculation abounds with the Lebanese claiming it was a storage site for firecrackers (yeah, right) but we suspect the site was warehousing Iranian munitions bound for Hamas to use against Israel so either the Mossad took care of the problem, or the mullah-loving Iranians and their Hamas allies are too flipping stupid to be around large caches of explosives.  Self-detonation (or so we suspect- morons!).  Wow.
  66. 2020 Tuesday A: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 18,380,616 confirmed cases, UP by 241,178 cases, 691,740 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,167 deaths, and 10,973,850 confirmed recoveries, UP by 220,035 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 4,834,460 confirmed cases, UP by 56,909 new cases, 158,728 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,208 new deaths, and 2,357,033 confirmed recoveries, UP by 38,264 new recoveries.  We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.
  67. 2020 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 519,427 confirmed cases, 9,501 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 2,448 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,315 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 58,715 confirmed cases, 1,600 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 417,589 confirmed number of cases, 35,719 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.  Wake up, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo!  Give us the honest numbers you fetid piece of sewer scum, especially of the senior citizens you have killed.  Shame on you.
  68. 2020 Tuesday C: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 26,828.47, UP 164.07 points (+0.62%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 10,841.17, UP 38.37 points (+0.35%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,306.51, UP 11.90 points (+0.36%).  The price of GOLD is $2,040.70 per troy oz., +19.00 (+0.94%) while the price of SILVER is $26.22 per troy ounce, +0.187 (+0.72%).  The price of PLATINUM is $958.50 per troy oz, +3.30 (+0.35%) while the price of COPPER is $2.90 per pound, +0.0085 (+0.29%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.55 per barrel, -0.15 (-0.36%).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.97 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.85 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency.
  69. 2020 Tuesday D: Dr. Oxiris Barbot, New York City health commissioner, sent a letter to moron Mayor Bill Di Blasio, calling it quits over the tremendous mishandling of the COVID-19 Chinese Virus.  We must remember that Mayor Di Blasio and Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo colluded together to send patients infected with the Wuhan Flu into rest homes where vulnerable people died sans the presence of any loved ones present.  We can smell massive lawsuits against Di Blasio and Cuomo brewing on the horizon, like the police officers they wish to destroy, they should enjoy NO qualified immunity for their criminal mistakes.  Elsewhere, General Charles Brown took the oath of office in the White House which made him the new chief of staff of the U.S. Air Force, the first black American to hold the post.  Congratulations! 
  70. 2020 Tuesday E: One teacher’s union after another around the country are making demands before they will return that range from soaking the wealthy, adopting the Green New Deal, abolishing the police, equipping every home with a computer and Internet access, and loads of other stupidity.  Friendly state education authorities are trying to shut down private schools, charter schools, you name it, they are doing whatever they can to close it.  President Trump: do what President Ronald Reagan did with the striking air traffic controllers- FIRE THEM and REPLACE THEM.  On August 05, 1981, he fired 11,359 of the scumbags.  Other Americans will take these jobs.
  71. 2021 Wednesday: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- 200,907,364 confirmed cases, +660,570, 4,268,702 confirmed deaths, +9,788 and 180,887,601 confirmed recoveries, +375,059.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 36,159,774 confirmed cases, UP 101,353 from yesterday’s reporting, 631,256 confirmed deaths, UP 759, [ix] and 29,783,667 confirmed recoveries, UP 24,537.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [x]  
  72. 2021 Wednesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 312,814 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.  Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 91,264 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xi]  
  74. 2021 Wednesday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 885,766 confirmed cases, 6,503 confirmed deaths, and 854,995 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Laos,[xii] 168th country on the list: 7,305 cases of the virus, 7 confirmed deaths and 3,804 confirmed recoveries. [xiii]

[xvi]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000025.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.97. In Lao Kip, one greenback equals 9,550.00 and in Latvian Lats, a buck equal 0.604 and in Lebanese Pound, one dollar equals 1,505.50 of theirs. [xvii]        
  76. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.387 per gallon, $3.025 in Florida, $4.085 in Hawaii, and $3.865 in Washington state. [xviii]    Let’s look at one other location- Maine: $3.128.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Cayman Islands: $4.929 per U.S. Gallon. [xix]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,602,871,192,916 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS. [xx]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Sweden, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Australia with $40 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  77. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Here’s the ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris’ daily ticker: Border czar for 134 days and 40 days since her one and only visit to the southern border.  Next, One America News shared the latest figures on the illegal alien tidal wave overwhelming the country today.  Here we go: (1) Cost this day alone: $533,587,136.  Next, (2) here is the cost for caring for all these illegal aliens this year: $236,150,079,488.  Next, (3) Here is the estimate of the numbers of illegals who have poured across the U.S.-Mexico border just this year: 2,420,349.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate of illegal aliens roaming the U.S.: 36,420,348.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  Note- the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day predicted as far back as 2009 when our original blogsite got underway that the numbers back then were between 35-50 million illegal aliens.  Now, we believe that number to be closer to 75-100 million.  A person cannot walk into a hardware store, go into a liquor store, dine at an outdoor restaurant without illegals running up and begging for food.  This must stop and it’s going to stop extremely soon…
  78. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– A federal judge blocks Governor Greg Abbott’s executive order prohibiting the transport of illegal aliens across the Lone Star State by anyone other than federal authorities.  The Texas Republican governor, however, is fighting back against this blatant overreach of power.  Elsewhere, slobbering Joe Biden continues blaming Texas and Florida for increasing the numbers of Chi-Vi cases.  ‘America’s Governor’ Ron DeSantis, R-FL, fired back at the counterfeit president, slamming him for allowing in millions of illegal aliens many of whom are infected with COVID-19 by telling him to ‘do your job and leave us alone.’  Man, the applause was tremendous.  Meanwhile, we have more numbers for the illegal alien invasion for the month of July: the Border Patrol caught 203,865 illegals, at least 37,252 were able to evade capture, 78 died, another 7,867 were guilty of NO violation, which leaves an outstanding number of 1,079 illegals.  Again, this is all a conservative estimate as the so-called ‘got-away folks’ are far higher than the numbers shown here.
  79. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I- Pakistan announced today that it has completed approximately 90-percent of the border wall with Afghanistan.  They don’t want Afghan refugees pouring into their country any more than Europeans want more Muslims, or the United States want more human refuse from around the world.  Good for them.  Elsewhere, Hezbollah scumbags fired some rockets into northern Israel today which led to the Israelis conducting artillery barrages on known jihadist sites in Lebanon.
  80. 2021 Wednesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci is predicting that within a few weeks, there will be ‘200,000 cases of the Chi-Vi daily in the United States.’  (Note- this is all you need to know that the border must be closed and that every single illegal alien is rounded up, imprisoned, and then deported ASAP).  Meanwhile, Dr. Ashish Jha told Newsmax today that the NIH director Dr. Francis Collins was right to walk back mask comments.  The good doctor was saying stupid stuff like parents should wear masks at home around their children.  Enough already.    
  81. 2021 Wednesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– The World Health Organization is calling for a moratorium on COVID-19 booster shots.  Oh, really?  Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms continue their bitching and whining over the recent GOP COVID-19 origins report that placed the blame squarely on the Chi-Coms for infecting the entire world with their Frankenstein-like lab-created Wuhan Bat Flu Virus.  Elsewhere, the Centers for Disease Control yesterday bowed to Democratic-Socialist pressure and re-enacted a moratorium on evictions, something they lack the power to do.  Doubts continue to build as to the legality of such an order by an entity with no power in this area.  Look, folks, this is what the Democrats love- they love rules and regulations, none of them backed up by laws.  This is how they punish people, how they persecute people, and how they crush people.  This is bullshit and we would suggest that landlords pay NO attention to this order.
  82. 2021 Wednesday K: Political News I– Democratic Party leadership in the House is urging their wavering members to run as “Biden Democrats” or risk losing the majority in 2022.  Meanwhile, Senator Kevin Cramer, R-ND, has introduced a bill (that will go nowhere) that says ‘if a state mandates COVID-19 vaccine passports, it also must mandate VOTER ID.’  That bill is going nowhere.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump is correct when he blasts the House Democrats for their ongoing crusade to get a hold of his tax returns.  Good for you.
  83. 2021 Wednesday L: Political News II– A new poll says that more than half of California’s Hispanic population wants the recall against Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom to succeed and like everyone else, the Latinos are members of all parties.  Meanwhile, Senator James Lankford, R-OK, says that ‘our grandchildren will suffer repaying Joe Biden’s massive debt.’  Amen.  In other political news, ‘America’s Mayor’ Rudy Giuliani says that ‘Cuomo may be guilty, but he does deserve due process.’  Elsewhere, Rep. Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd CD, is suing MSNBC’s Rachel “Mudslinger” Maddow for libel.  We hope you win, congressman.
  84. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News III– In other political news, a new poll says that almost everyone is against partisan gerrymandering.  Next, Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnel, RINO-KY, has outlined demands for future spending bills.  Mitch, you don’t have any power.  Meanwhile, Joe Biden plans to shift arms export sales based on human rights concerns.  Looks like Saudi Arabia is not going to get its weapons.
  85. 2021 Wednesday N: Economic News– Last month, everyone was celebrating how many NEW private sector jobs Joe Biden was going to create and then whoops-a-daisy, bad economic news.  Last month, the Biden regime created ONLY 330,000 jobs- many of them no more than hamburger-flipper or taco-stuffer jobs- rather than the highly predicted number of 653,000 new jobs.  Growth in U.S. services sector hits a record high in July.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump economic adviser Peter Navarro says “U.S. pensions took a big hit from the Chi-Coms’ crackdown on BIG TECH.”
  86. 2021 Wednesday O: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3583 what with a $14 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner.  Here are the numbers: 04, 14, 18, 36, 43, and Mega 14.  Out of 89,945 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $33,312.  The winning ticket was sold at a 7-Eleven in Culver City, CA 90232.   Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #869 with a jackpot of $211 million up for grabs: 05, 21, 32, 36, 58, and Powerball 14.  Out of 85,166 winning tickets in the Golden State, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $11,844 apiece.
  87. 2022 Thursday: Hmmm, so-o-o, Joe ‘Slobbering’ Biden whacked Ayman Al-Zawahiri, the Number Two of al-Qaida, longtime confidant, physician, and amigo of dead terrorist Osama bin Laden.  A somewhat coherent Biden stumbled to the microphones this past Monday and stuttered out his message of a ‘successful drone strike’ on an old terrorist no one has seen in about a decade- if not longer.  Drooling Joe told his then-boss Barack Hussein Obama (and probably still boss) NOT to whack Osama but Obama ‘All Drama’ did.  Now, Joe wants us to think he’s a big, macho machine ordering death and destruction on every fourth string, D-team terrorist.  Folks, I don’t buy this crap nor will I.  When and if they confirm the DNA of the dead terrorist to be him or not, it means NOTHING.  NOTHING.  Big frigging deal.  Joe, you aren’t Donald J. Trump.  You’re a senile bum.  Resign now.

  24. 1916 Tuesday: The U.S. Senate agrees by a vote of 82-6 to join the side of the Allies in World War I.  Meanwhile, on the Western Front, all eyes are fixed on Verdun.  The death toll is horrendous for both the German attackers and the French defenders.  The loss of life in this terrible battle would cause some French units to refuse to fight.  Elsewhere, on the Southeastern Front where the Russians are fighting a series of battles from the Carpathian Mountains to Armenia, the Czar makes a change in command- General Aleksei Brusilov in place of General Nicolay Iudovich Ivanov.  Soon, General Brusilov would design the so-called “Brusilov Offensive” that would almost knock the Central Powers to their knees.
  25. 1917 Wednesday: The U.S. Senate voted 90-6 to enter World War I on the Allied side.  This would drive the Germans to launch a major offensive all across the Western Front in the hopes of pulverizing both the British and French forces before any American help can arrive.   Still, the ravages of hunger and in some places, starvation, is threatening all sides as the farmlands every nation depended upon for food have become battlefields.  The German U-Boats are trying to starve Britain while British warships continue trying to keep the Central Powers unable to import any outside foodstuffs.  Civilians are becoming desperate everywhere.

  27. 1919 Friday: Allied troops continue fighting with White Russian forces to subdue the cancer of communism that is engulfing Russia, Eastern Europe, and even popping up in parts of eastern Germany where the authorities have their hands full.  The Germans are in dire straits, being blamed for the entire war when they were not the ones who started it; no, they came to the aid of their Austro-Hungarian allies and the rest is history as they say.
  28. 1932 Monday: After five years of research, Professor C.G. King of the University of Pittsburgh, isolated vitamin C.

  32. 1941 Friday: The Afrika Korps conquers the Fascist Italian, North African port of Benghazi, Libya, driving the British into headlong retreat.  German and Italian motorized columns roll through the streets and jubilant civilians celebrate their arrival.   Elsewhere, as Germans move towards Yugoslavia, Adolf Hitler also approves a plan for the Nazis to aid their fumbling Italian allies and knock Greece out of the fight.
  33. 1942 Saturday: The Luftwaffe launches a major attack on the Soviet naval base at Kronstadt.  Although the German warplanes inflicted damage on 13 vessels, they were unable to sink any of the fleet.
  34. 1944 Tuesday: French General Charles de Gaulle forms a new government with communists among it, preparing to return to Paris when the Allies land on the Continent.  On the Eastern Front, the Germans are launching localized counterattacks with the Fourth Panzer Army which capture the western Ukrainian city of Kovel and throw back the Soviet defenders.
  35. 1945 Wednesday: The Red Army liberates Hungary from the Nazis.  Meanwhile, U.S. forces liberated the Nazi death camp Ohrdruf in Germany.  All roads lead to Berlin right now as the Allies continue forging ahead, wiping out resistance wherever they find it.
  36. 1948 Sunday: Future bassist of the Allman Brothers Band[ii], Berry Oakley was born in Chicago, Illinois.  Meanwhile, future drummer of the British rock band, Dire Straits[iii]—Pete Withers—was born on this date in Leicester, England.

  38. 1952 Friday: In Belfast, Northern Ireland, future member of Thin Lizzy[iv]– Gary Moore- is born.  He would perform with the famed rock band on guitars/vocals from 1974 to 1977 and again from 1978-1979.  Elsewhere, the 61st U.S. Attorney General James P.

  57. 2004 Sunday: PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat boastfully dismisses Israeli threats to whack him.   U.S. and other world leaders blast Israel for saying they might do a horrible thing such as murdering a world-class terrorist who has more innocent blood on his hands than any other Islamist thug.
  58. 2005 Monday: Palestinians in the West Bank are going berserk today when word has it that Israel is going to begin dumping 10,000 tons of garbage in landfills in the area.  Of course, the Palestinians claim it’s going to foul their water supply and that it’s a breach of international treaties and the like.  We say, ‘shut up, when you stop treating your citizens like garbage, urging them to commit acts of jihad, maybe the Israelis won’t treat YOU like garbage.’  (Note- Moses Scharbug III is responsible for this opinion).  Elsewhere, insurgents in Iraq launch an attack on Abu Ghraib prison to free their jihadist brethren injuring American and Iraqi troops and jailers.  The guards are able to fight the scumbags off. 
  59. 2006 Tuesday: Tom Delay, R-TX, the former majority leader in the U.S. House of Representatives announces his resignation.  Meanwhile, labor protests continue in France what with millions taking to streets across the country demanding the First Employment Contract not be put into effect.
  60. 2007 Wednesday: As House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi continues her ‘listening trip’ across the Middle East, the Israelis are having none of it, especially since she visited Syrian mass murdered President Bashar al-Assad the previous day.  Prime Minister Ehud Olmert blasts “Mumbles” for the Syrian trip saying that it was a ‘major mistake.’  He also denies that the befuddled Democrat politician handed him a ‘peace proposal.’  If she did, she probably forgot it a day later.
  61. 2008 Friday: Law enforcement authorities launch a raid on Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints owned by YFZ Ranch in Texas nets 401 children and 133 women taken into state custody.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of State renews a contract with Blackwater Worldwide- a company that provides security via mercenaries- to continue protecting U.S. diplomats in the world’s troubled hotspots.
  62. 2009 Saturday: Costa Rica, Malaysia, and the Philippines find themselves in trouble today.  You ask why?  Well, the Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development blacklists them for being tax havens where the wealthy can hide their money.  What is wrong with that:  We all want to be able to do that… elsewhere, in North Waziristan, Pakistan, a U.S. drone strike whacks 13 jihadists convening with one another.  Yikes.
  63. 2010 Sunday: In the mine rescue in Shanxi, China, rescuers pull out 114 miners after pulling out the other 39 or so the previous day.  These poor souls have been trapped down there for more than a week, so God bless them for rescuing these poor workers.  Elsewhere, the war in Iraq continues to rage as Islamist thugs set off simultaneous car bombs outside the German, Iranian, and Egyptian embassies.  Many people on the street are killed or injured.
  64. 2011 Monday: Reports claim that China has successfully modified cows to produce ‘human milk’.  People- does this not scare the living f**k out of you?  What the hell is this communist hellhole doing?  Enough is enough.  Meanwhile, the Israelis have their hands full with the Arab Spring as the Palestinians are causing havoc along the border with Gaza and their country.  Israeli warplanes are crisscrossing Palestinian airspace letting them know that if they step out of line, they are going to light them up.
  65. 2012 Wednesday: The first deployment of U.S. Marines arrives in Australia’s city of Darwin in the Northern Territory.   Elsewhere- we hate to say this, some nations were better off under colonialism– a suicide bomber attacks the National Theater in the Somali capital of Mogadishu while a ceremony was underway killing at least 10 people and wounding God knows how many others.  Fascist Italy, please come back!
  66. 2013 Thursday: Pulitzer Prize –winning film reviewer Roger Ebert, 70, died in Chicago, Illinois.  Meanwhile, the Hubble Space Telescope observes the most distant supernova on record on this date.
  67. 2014 Friday:  The 16,480-foot Tungurahua volcano erupts twice; the volcano is located about 90 miles south of Quito in Ecuador.  Elsewhere, in a smart move, the South Korean military test fires some ballistic missiles that they hope with some improvements will be able to hit any target in the territory of their northern neighbor, North Korea.  Meanwhile, in West Africa, the rampaging Ebola epidemic has killed at least 90 people in Guinea and Liberia and now the first case has appeared in Mali.
  68. 2015 Saturday: Syrian and other Middle Eastern refugees continue to flood across the Mediterranean with the Italian navy rescuing 1,500 over the past 24 hours.  The only way to halt this insanity is for the Europeans to begin sinking the refugee vessels.  Meanwhile, the United States Army in the Obama era (it would have to be) is probing allegations that its members committed sexual assaults while deployed there between 2003-2007.  Ah, the Bush-Cheney years, that’s Barack Hussein Obama for you.
  69. 2016 Monday: Vietnam says, ‘enough is enough’ when it comes to Chi-Com intrusions into their fishing waters with their ‘fishing fleets’ which in reality, are military operations.  Vietnamese naval and marine assets board this ship and then take it under tow back to one of their ports.  Of course, Beijing starts making all manner of threats.  In the 78th NCAA Men’s National Basketball Championship, Villanova defeats North Carolina by a final score of 77-74. 
  70. 2017 Tuesday: Syrian government forces launch a chemical weapons attack on Khan Shaykhun resulting in at least 80 civilian deaths and countless others injured.  President Barack Obama had warned Bashar al-Assad that ‘if he crossed the red line and used chemical weapons, there would be hell to pay.’  No hell to pay until Donald J. Trump became president.  Meanwhile, according to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Chinese retail giant Alibaba becomes the world’s largest retailer.  You go, China, you go. 
  71. 2018 Wednesday: Since the U.S. Congress won’t act to do something on the U.S.-Mexico border, President Donald J. Trump grasps the bull by the balls and sends the U.S. National Guard to aid struggling Customs and Border Patrol officers attempting to deal with one wave after another of illegal alien invaders.  Of course, the 45th president suffers all manner of criticism for attempting to halt Democrats AND RINO Republicans’ beloved illegal aliens.  Democrats want voters and RINOs like cheap labor.  We say, “Militarize the southern border with minefields, antivehicle, antipersonnel, anti-boat obstacles, a massive wall, artillery positions, and even seed the Rio Grande with alligator pups.  When the latter grow up, they will patrol the river…
  72. 2019 Thursday: The Church of Latter-Day Saints- aka the Mormon Church- promises to roll back anti-LGBTQIA+ policies which include not baptizing the children of gay parents.  Bowed to pressure, did you?  What a shame.  Meanwhile, the governor of Guam- Lourdes “Lou” Leon Guerrero, Democrat, signs a bill permitting for the recreational use of marijuana.  Elsewhere, in the aftermath of the Christchurch mosque massacres, both New Zealand and Australia pass laws prohibiting the posting of violent content online.  If such content is posted, it must be removed immediately, or the service providers must face the consequences.
  73. 2020 Saturday: The Wuhan Virus- straight out of Wuhan, China- continues claiming lives around the world and ruining much of the global economy.  Although Beijing continues to claim that things are ‘looking really great in China,’ everyone knows this is little more than propaganda put forth by their state-run media.  Shame on them.  Current figures for today are more than one million confirmed cases what with more than 64,000 confirmed deaths worldwide.  In the United States, there are 312,076 confirmed U.S. cases and 8,496 confirmed deaths.  When this crisis ends, the world will hold the communist government of China accountable and as Chef Goldie McNamara has said, President Donald J. Trump should demand a return to the Two-China Policy of recognizing the equality of Nationalist aka Free China as a separate entity from the People’s Republic of (Communist China).
  74. 2021 Sunday: WOKE NEWS– first, permit us to say this- it is time that people stand up and slap the WOKE pansies in the mouth and say, “Hell, no, we are not going to permit a bunch of wimpified losers such as yourselves to tell us what we can and cannot say.  Furthermore, IF you want to know where WOKE stupidity came from, it emanates from 1-2 generations of young people NEVER being told ‘NO,’ or given ‘participation trophies’ or even more importantly, a belt across their sniveling, cringing asses when they were growing up.  If ever one needed an example of what happens when you spare the rod and spoil the child, this is precisely what timidity in parenting gets one.’  Okay, top GOP lawmakers say that Major League Baseball should lose its antitrust exemption over pulling the MLB All-Star Game and MLB Draft out of Georgia[vii] over the recent enactment of new voting laws.  READ the law first before you run with the WOKE HERD.  Speaking of ‘WOKE,’ President Donald J. Trump says that all Americans should boycott any business or industry pushing this ignorant WOKE agenda.  God bless you, sir.  In other WOKE news, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, condemns Coca-Cola’s® opposition to the new election laws in the Peach State.  NO MORE Coca-Cola® for us, folks.  Speaking of President Donald J. Trump, he wishes ‘everyone an incredibly happy Easter, including all the left-wing crazies’ out there running amok.
  75. 2021 Sunday A: FOREIGN NEWS/OVERSEAS NEWS– Pakistan is struggling to stop its citizens from smuggling in oil from Iran.  Every now and then, someone makes a mistake and blows everyone sky high from tapping into pipelines or tanker trucks.  Next, the crown prince of Jordan is reportedly in home detention following the plotting of a coup against his half-brother King Abdullah.  Moving on, the final ships trapped in the Suez Canal are on their way to the high seas and freedom.   Finally, Indonesia is suffering from some serious natural disasters what with landslides after heavy rains carrying away homes, businesses, and even people.  Reportedly, at least 44 citizens are dead, numerous others missing, and thousands evacuated.  We’re with you!  Finally, recent Russian polls claim that ‘Vladimir Putin is the sexiest Russian male alive.’  Congrats, Comrade Vlad!
  76. 2021 Sunday B: POLITICAL NEWS NATIONAL– Report- at least three Democrats refuse to take campaign donations from dingdong ultra-leftist lunatic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DS-NY 14th congressional district, aka AOC, aka Baby Evita, aka Sandy Cortez, aka the Fly, and some who have accepted money from her campaign coffers returned them.[viii]  This dingbat’s star is already waning.  Meanwhile, frontrunner in the race to replace dimwit New York City Mayor Bill Di Blasio- Andrew Yang- has left the hospital after being treated for kidney stones.
  77. 2021 Sunday C: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE / JOE BIDEN NEWS– Border Democrats are looking to feeble old Joe Biden to do something quick about the border.  Senator John Barrasso, R-WY, says, ‘not only is the border crisis a humanitarian crisis, it’s also a national security crisis because we have no clue who is coming across it.’  Something must be done and soon to stop the tidal wave of diseased, low-skilled, low-IQ illegals swamping across it.   Meanwhile, government officials in the Lone Star State float the idea of using Joe Biden’s PORKULUS money to continue construction on the southern border wall.  Like Hadrian’s Wall in Roman Britain, the wall is the only thing between civilization and 1,000 years of darkness.  Speaking of Texas, Congressman Jodey Arrington, R-TX 19th congressional district, says that ‘if the Biden administration would pull back on welfare given to illegal aliens who have no business being in our country, which would stop many of them from coming (just as would a few thousand dollars spent on lead- Stinkbug).
  78. 2021 Sunday D: 2020 STOLEN/FRAUDULENT PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION– as if we needed more proof that the 2020 Presidential Election was corrupt and stolen on behalf of drooling, enfeebled Joe Biden, Maricopa County officials in the Copper State WILL NOT permit Arizona investigators to recount the 2.1 million ballots by hand, a job estimated to take up to two months at 18 hours per day.  IF everything was on the up and up as Democrats claim it was, then help the investigators instead of trying to thwart them and cover up your tracks.
  79. 2021 Sunday E: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– After more than two months in office, doddering old slobbering old Joe Biden finally picks up the phone and calls (his partner in crime) Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.  Good for you, Joe, good for you, Joe.  Next Climate Czar, the hypocritical John F. Kerry is focusing on efforts to bring the United States and the Chi-Coms together on environmental issues.  This we would love to see…Next, after one of their own- Nation of Islam’s Noah Green- crashed into a barricade outside the U.S. Senate side of Constitution Avenue and killed one officer and injured another before being shot dead himself, Democrats on Capitol Hill are back to finding ways to secure Fort Pelosi.  Isn’t it amazing how stuff just ‘seems to occur’ that allows the Dems to rob the American people of their rights?  Elsewhere, Native Americans in Minnesota are on the warpath as they try to stop a Canadian energy project running through their state.
  80. 2021 Sunday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– GOP lawmakers in Kansas within hours of Governor Laura Kelly, Democrat, slapping a mask mandate on the people of her state, they knocked it down and out so the people of Kansas can go about their lives in a normal manner.  Excellent!  Elsewhere, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, GOP, declares a state of emergency in three counties near Tampa due to possible flooding.  Meanwhile, Seattle activists propose a new initiative which would end homelessness and homeless encampments of which, they are the national capital, and would fund housing for those affected by the new proposal.   Moving on, Congressman Madison Cawthorn, R-NC 11th congressional district, calls out demands for increased gun control as well as the politization of the U.S. military and says that Dems’ cries for ‘common sense gun laws’ means the disarmament of the American people.  God bless you, son.  
  81. 2021 Sunday G: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– Jeff Bezos, Amazon.com multi-billionaire is looking to buy the NFL franchise Los Angeles Chargers, valued at $2.6 billion due to massive amounts of debt.  Jeff- send them back to San Diego.  Next, Tesla is doing battle with labor unions and recent Labor Board rulings.  Good luck.  Moving on, the U.S. hits a milestone dishing out 3 million Chi-Vi vaccines per day.  This follows on the news of large numbers of the unusable Johnson & Johnson vaccines going bad.  What is up with that company?  Meanwhile, in New York City, Broadway is finally set to reopen.  About time.   Elsewhere, signs of life returning to normal continue to arise as the TSA announces that in a single day, it screened 1.5 million airline passengers.  Finally, NFL great Tom Brady’s rookie card sold for $2.25 million.

  83. 2021 Sunday I: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 231,707 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States– feeble old Joe, in another one-to-two weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  FROZEN FIGURES TODAY…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by Robbie Robertson was a ‘best of’ compilation for his most ardent fans, “Classic Masters,” an album that came out on August 13, 2002.  The album featured a collection of tunes culled from his first two solo albums upon leaving the Band, the group that gave him fame and fortune, the group that he would leave behind and move on from due to it rapidly spiraling out of control.  We mourn the loss of the Band just as we celebrated the others regrouping and trying to regain some steam.  We also love Robbie Robertson’s unique songwriting abilities, talent that gave us songs that 50 years later are as powerful and as poignant as they are today, especially when put up against crap from Maroon Five, Coldplay, and other Bozo bands that dupe younger fans into believing they are something of value.  Please, seek this album out, give it a good listen, and consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure- you will be glad you did.

  63. 2017 Saturday: The Trump transition team accuses Robert S. Mueller of illegally obtaining campaign emails.  The Mueller investigation is obtaining ‘evidence of collusion between President Donald J. Trump and Vladimir Putin in unlawful ways.’  Since the evidence does not exist, it would suggest that the special counsel is manufacturing his own evidence.
  64. 2018 Sunday: With the threat of a partial government shutdown looming, the White House dug in on its demand for $5 billion to build a border wall as congressional Democrats stood firm against it.  Meanwhile, over increasing scandals, U.S. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke announces he is going to step down from his position.
  65. 2019 Monday: Congressional Democrats continued trying to find their collective balls to go into the House Rules Committee the next day so they could hammer out the rules for the impeachment trial of President Donald J. Trump.    Meanwhile, Democrats running for the nomination of their party are begging DNC Chair Tom Perez to change the rules for inclusion for the January and February debates.  The rules’ demand for polling and donation numbers to meet certain criteria is preventing many of them from being able to participate.   
  66. 2020 Wednesday: Texas wants to become the home of the U.S. Space Force Command.  Next, President Donald J. Trump doubles down on his claims of FRAUD in the 2020 Presidential Election which are becoming clearer and clearer by the day.  He says, “Bad things happened in the 2020 Presidential Election” and must be addressed.  He also told Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY, that it’s ‘too soon to give up on the election’ even as Mitch and his leadership are urging their fellow GOP senators NOT to contest the election in early January.  However, in January 2017, House Democrats interrupted the proceedings no less than ELEVEN times in their bid to stop Trump from becoming the 45th president and to secure the election for Hillary Rodham Clinton.
  67. 2020 Wednesday A:  The American Civil Liberties Union calls for a release of half of ALL inmates in U.S. prisons and jails because of the Chi-Vi threat.  They probably want all illegal aliens released, too.  Let’s deport them ASAP.  Meanwhile, federal prosecutors indict Canadian pervert Peter Nygard, a fashion designer, on multiple charges of sex-trafficking.  Hmmm, seems like we have a junior Jeffrey Epstein here.
  68. 2020 Wednesday B: The U.S. Senate Homeland Security Committee chaired by Ron Johnson, R-WI, and ranking member, Sen. Gary Peters (who was beaten by John James in November but who maintains his seat thanks to rampant voter fraud in his state), D-MI.  Witness Christopher Krebs, recently fired by President Trump still maintains ‘no signs of foreign interference in the election’ but that ‘fraud is a criminal matter.’  He also states that ‘rumor control is extremely important.’   Chairman Ron Johnson says the “GOP is not peddling Russian disinformation’ and tells his colleague Senator Peters ‘to stop lying, that all he does is lie and to stop spreading Russian disinformation, himself.’  Amen.  Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, then asks a question regarding ‘if non-legislators changing election laws without the involvement of state legislators is okay’ which everyone with half-a-brain or more knows is NOT.
  69. 2020 Wednesday C: Regarding the Senate Homeland Security Committee meeting on the rampant voter fraud that occurred in the 2020 Presidential and Senatorial elections, Christopher Krebs says it’s ‘important to use paper ballots so there is a paper trail which would have provided the necessary evidence as to whether there was cheating or there was not.’  Amen to that, too. We also learn that Pennsylvania was among the most corrupt states with more dead people, more illegal aliens, more multiple voters, more made-up voters, and more underage voters than anywhere else in the country.  Send Gov. Wolf to prison. 
  70. 2020 Wednesday D: In the same Senate committee hearings as outlined in the previous two points, Senator James Lankford, R-OK, says back in 2016, ’32-percent of the American people believed that Vladimir Putin and the Russkies interfered in the U.S. Presidential Election to help Donald Trump and to hurt Hillary Rodham Clinton.  We did hearings then so what is wrong with holding hearings now, especially when 75 million plus Americans voted for Donald Trump’ and as Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, says ‘are not going to just go away no matter how much Democrats want them to.’  Amen to that, too.  In 2016, Dems weren’t going to move on whereas NOW, they want everyone to move on and to embrace “Pro-China Joe” Biden and “Kooky Kamala” Harris as our next president and vice president.  F**k them.
  71. 2020 Wednesday E: Senator James Lankford, R-OK, also says that his state as were numerous others done with vote counting on Election Night as the country always has but look in amazement at other states STILL counting votes more than two weeks after Election Day and stating, ‘we don’t know how many ballots are left to be counted.’  Senator Lankford also points out to the Eric system- the Electronic Voter Information Center used by 30 states to monitor if people are voting more than once or in a series of places.  All states should be using this.  Senator Lankford also says that in HIS state, voter fraudsters are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law while in states with rampant voter fraud like Nevada has yet to punish anyone even with 42,000 dead voters having voted.  The Trump campaign witness and adviser Jesse Binall concurred that NO one has faced prosecution in the Silver State.
  72. 2020 Wednesday F: Regarding the election, Wisconsin Election Commission Director Meagan Wolfe calls for legislation for election reform in her corrupt state due to widespread irregularities across her state.  Meanwhile, President Trump wants a special counsel appointed to investigate Hunter Biden and perhaps his father.  Elsewhere, we learn that the Senate races in Georgia are tied- David Perdue v. Jon Ossoff and Kelly Loeffler v. Islamist ‘Reverend’ Raphael Warnock.  Mitch: we would be inclined to donate more cash to help the GOP candidates if you would stand with President Trump, you RINO POS.  Meanwhile, Cardinal Raymond Leo Burke says that ‘the Democrats are seeking a GREAT RESET in the United States with which to force Marxism down our throats.
  73. 2020 Wednesday G: National security adviser Robert O’Brien cuts his European trip short to rush home to deal with the ongoing Russian-Chi-Com-and-other foreign intel agents hacking into the U.S. federal government as well as taking down YouTube, Gmail, and Google.  Meanwhile, White House counsel urged President Trump not to fire POS FBI Director Christopher Wray.   Finally, Ken Starr will square off with Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg in a Texas court regarding Facebook’s interference in the 2020 Elections and the vast amounts of cash Zuckerberg dropped on various entities in the election ostensibly to help them in their efforts to (1) steal the elections and (2) to censor information favorable to President Trump and the GOP.  Send this punk to prison.  The Amistad Project is the source of the report on Zuckerberg.  Speaking of punks, it’s official, “Pro-China Joe” Biden names Mayor Pete Buttigieg to be his secretary of Transportation.   Princess, uh, Mayor Pete will become the first openly gay person to head a Cabinet position.
  74. 2020 Wednesday H: In other news, scientists suggest that kangaroos can learn to communicate with human beings.  We believe every creature on Earth is evolving but evolution is extremely slow, so no one truly notices it.  Next, Major-League Baseball finally does something it should have done decades ago and that is to elevate the Negro Leagues to MLB status so all records and information will become a part of MLB history.  God bless you!  Elsewhere, feel-good liberal Dodge City, Kansas, Mayor Joyce Warshaw resigns her post after claiming she has received ‘so much email and mail threatening her life over her support of a comprehensive mask mandate.’  Wah, wah, wah, STFU.   In other news, the dictator of Turkey- Tayyip Recep Erdogan calls sanctions emplaced upon his country because it bought a Russian defense system to be an ‘attack on his nation.’  Dude, you need to shut up and GO.
  75. 2020 Wednesday I: Internal documents released on the fly from the World Health Organization, the corrupt organization in the pocket of wannabe global dictator Xi Jinping, show that their distribution plan for release of the Wuhan Virus vaccine is doomed to fail.  Elsewhere, that ignoramus Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Sandy Cortez, aka Baby Evita, aka AOC, aka “The Fly,” says ‘both Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer need to go.  NOW.’
  76. 2020 Wednesday J: Here are the latest stats for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, straight out of Wuhan, China: 74,087,090 confirmed cases, UP by 1,865,456 cases, 1,646,687 confirmed deaths, UP by 34,673 deaths, and 41,893,773 confirmed recoveries, DOWN by 5,324,462 recoveries from yesterday’s figures- curious.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 16,961,262 confirmed cases, UP by 273,102 new cases, 308,762 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,280 new deaths, and 7,688,057 confirmed recoveries, UP by 203,304 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt POSs).  Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 360,630 confirmed cases, 3,014 confirmed deaths, and 338,784 confirmed recoveries.
  77. 2020 Wednesday K: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 1,671,081 confirmed cases, 21,481 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 19,590 confirmed cases, 278 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION OF confirmed recoveries anymore- what is up with YOU, Gov. Ige, you Democrat hack.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 212,488 confirmed cases, 3,084 confirmed deaths, but like California, the gorilla-faced governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, Florida: 1,155,355 confirmed number of cases, 20,480 confirmed deaths, and sadly, no mention of the confirmed number of recoveries- thank you.   Speaking of the Yellow Fever 2020, a healthcare worker in Alaska was given the vaccine injection and immediately began having harsh reactions to the drug and had to be placed into the hospital.
  78. 2020 Wednesday L:  2020 Wednesday E: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,154.54, DOWN 44.77 points (-0.15%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,658.19, UP 63.13 points (+0.50%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,701.17, UP 6.55 points (+0.18%).  The price of GOLD is $1,867.30 per troy oz., +8.20 (+0.24%) while the price of SILVER is $25.44 per troy ounce, +0.393 (+1.57%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,040.00 per troy oz, +4.60 (+0.44%) while the price of COPPER is $3.56 per pound, +0.005 (+0.14%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,348.20 per troy oz, +24.20 (+1.04%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $47.86 per barrel, +0.04 (+0.08%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.53 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.86.
  79. 2020 Wednesday M: Stay tuned for tonight’s Super Lotto #3517 Draw with a $14 million jackpot and the Powerball #803 Draw with $277 million up for grabs.  Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto first: 04, 06, 11, 12, 17, and Mega 09.  Out of 97,848 winning tickets, the highest winners were 26 people who had four numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $604 apiece.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball: 04, 23, 37, 61, 67, and Powerball 07.  Out of 95,182 winning tickets, the highest winners were 3 people who had four numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $15,585 apiece. 
  80. 2020 Wednesday N: Final news for the night: Fosun Pharma seeks to buy 100 million does of Biontech’s Chi-Vi vaccine for shipment to mainland communist China.   Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Senator Tom Cotton, R-Arkansas, is pushing a bill designed to punish Beijing for their annual $1 billion industry of forced organ harvesting from prisoners and members of religious groups.  No wonder the communists in Beijing HATE Senator Cotton.  The Stop Force Organs Harvesting Act would put the Chinese Communist Party thugs on notice that they must stop this egregious human rights abuse.  Elsewhere, Vice President Mike Pence will take the Beijing Bat Flu vaccine on live TV at the White House.  Particulars to come.  Finally, a federal court tells Ohio they cannot block trannys seeking to change their birth certificates to reflect their ‘identities.’
  81. 2020 Wednesday O:  Friends, this is where we were at one year ago today: we know the Chi-Coms, their lackeys Canada, Russia, Iran, Venezuela, Cuba, and other assorted Third World s-hole countries- as well as their stooges in the Democratic Party- are up to no-good.  Stick around to discover crimes they’ve committed today…         
  82. 2021 Thursday: Everyone knows the drill…stick around to discover the truth along with all of us- you will be glad you did.

ENDNOTES:

[i] We promoted the music of Big Brother and the Holding Company, beginning on Monday, 18-July-2011 through Tuesday, 26-July-2011.  At the time, we were not farsighted enough to offer the music of Janis Joplin but hope to do so at some point in the near future when we return to promoting the music of American rock bands.

[ii] We shared the music of the Hollies with the world beginning on Monday, 29-August-2016 through Thursday, 03-November-2016.  We encourage everyone to check out the music of this well-known British Invasion band. 

[iii] We look forward to sharing the music of this famed, “Little Ol’ Band from Texas,” ZZ Top sometime in the next decade. 

WE THANK EVERYONE FOR JOINING US AT WORDPRESS.COM AND FOR AIDING US IN CONTINUING TO DO THE WORK WE TOOK UPON OURSELVES MORE THAN A DECADE AGO

  58. 2018 Sunday: In the Florida U.S. Senate race, Democrat Bill Nelson tearfully concedes to outgoing Republican Governor Rick Scott.  Good riddance.   Meanwhile, as firefighters continue battling the Camp Fire, the possibility that rain might come brings sighs of relief.  None of these fires are unnecessary, if only the frigging state of California would manage her forests properly instead of making unfair demands on PG&E to go to renewable sources by 2025 and would stop pouring every extra cent into CalPERS and into the farce of California High-Speed Rail, one of the greatest self-enrichment schemes for both the Democratic Party and their backers in Beijing.[ix] 
  59. 2019 Monday: On this date, Chinese authorities on the mainland in conjunction with law enforcement in Hong Kong are working hard to bring the illegal protests to an end.  Currently, the authorities have surrounded a university in the former British crown colony and are trying to arrest every rioter seeking to escape their dragnet.  Meanwhile, Mayor Pete Buttigieg[x] of South Bend, Indiana, seeking to win the 2020 nomination of the Democratic Party finds himself leading the polls in Iowa on this date.  Wow.    This, of course, sets off his opponents seeking the nomination and far-left loser Julian Castro heads to the mics to blast Buttigieg.  Elsewhere, Democratic Congressman Eric Swalwell, the first to abandon the race for the 2020 Democratic Party presidential nomination becomes the butt of jokes around the world.  While being interviewed by Chris Matthews on MSNBC, the congressman in mid-sentence is heard to rip a LOUD FART[xi] on live TV.  He denies he did it, but the evidence is there.        
  60. 2020 Wednesday: Although most major news outlets, Democrats, and anti-Trump RINOs have called the election for “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his sidekick, “Kooky Kamala” Harris, Las Vegas bookmakers have not.  Meanwhile, votes for President Donald J. Trump continue turning up in various battleground states but in Michigan, a setback occurred when county election workers first refused to certify the elections in the Detroit area until they came under verbal assault and threatened physical assault.  They quickly certified the results and sent them up the ladder to the Michigan secretary of state.  Wow.  Elsewhere, the House GOP leaders vote to retain the same officers in the lower chamber of Congress while initial reports say the Dems might keep current House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi in her position.  How this can be true after they lost beaucoup seats after being promised of the MASSIVE VICTORIES to come is beyond us.  However, what is also beyond us is the fact that the GOP knocked out one Democrat House incumbent after another and we are still to believe that President Donald J. Trump lost his re-election bid?  Say what?
  61. 2020 Wednesday A: The Department of Justice charges seven people for committing fraud on the U.S. government by scamming the Paycheck Protection Program out of $16 million.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump fires Christopher Krebs, a Trump appointee to head the elections security division at the Department of Homeland Security after he proclaimed, ‘NO election shenanigans have occurred in the 2020 Presidential Election.’  Elsewhere, CNN’s famed foreign correspondent, the highly biased Christine Amanpour expressed regret for having used the name of “President Donald J. Trump and his followers” in connection with Kristallnacht.”  That’s nice, Ms. Amanpour, you anti-Semitic bigot.   Finally, we learn that the Durham Probe into the Democrats, the Russians, the Chi-Coms, and the Obama administration continues.  IF Trump should lose, so what?  Speaking of President Donald J. Trump, he is doing his best to withdraw 25,000 American troops from the Middle East before the year’s end.
  62. 2020 Wednesday B: Pfizer- not to be outdone by Moderna- says their COVID-19 vaccine is 95-percent or more effective.  However, given billions of dollars by the U.S. government to develop the vaccine in record time to provide 100 million doses of the vaccine by year’s end has now reneged and says it will only provide 20 million doses while sending the other 80 million doses abroad.  Good Lord!  WTF is wrong with American companies?  Oh, wait, Pfizer donated BIG BUCKS to the campaign of “Pro-China Joe” Biden and “Kooky Kamala” Harris.  Go figure.
  63. 2020 Wednesday C: Back to the Chi-Coms and their Wuhan Virus pandemic, here are the latest stats: 56,024,130 confirmed cases, UP by 690,756 cases, 1,345,639 confirmed deaths, UP by 13,249 deaths, and 35,969,240 confirmed recoveries, UP by 356,120 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 11,546,233 confirmed cases, UP by 177,590 new cases, 253,423 confirmed deaths, UP by 2,100 new deaths, and 6,095,958 confirmed recoveries, UP by 58,978 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt POSs).  Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 326,200 confirmed cases, 2,738 confirmed deaths, and 315,314 confirmed recoveries. 
  64. 2020 Wednesday D: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 1,058,125 confirmed cases, 18,364 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 16,755 confirmed cases, 222 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION OF confirmed recoveries anymore- what is up with YOU, Gov. Ige, you Democrat hack.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 140,942 confirmed cases, 2,686 confirmed deaths, but like California, the palooka-faced governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, Virginia, the home of Democratic corruption, elected officials who dress in blackface or who have committed sexual assaults: 208,833 confirmed number of cases, 3,860 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed number of recoveries- thank you, Governor Ralph “KKK” Northam for concealing the number of recoveries- yet another left-wing liberal POS politician.
  65. 2020 Wednesday E: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 29,438.42, DOWN 344.93 points (-1.16%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,801.60, DOWN 97.74 points (-0.82%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,567.79, DOWN 41.74 points (-1.16%).  The price of GOLD is $1,871.00 per troy oz., -2.90 (-0.15%) while the price of SILVER is $24.40 per troy ounce, -0.53 (-0.22%).  The price of PLATINUM is $948.10 per troy oz, -2.80 (-0.29%) while the price of COPPER is $3.20 per pound, -0.002 (-0.06%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,354.00 per troy oz, +27.50 (+1.18%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.62 per barrel, -0.20 (-0.48%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.56 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.30.
  66. 2020 Wednesday F: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Super Lotto #3509 with a jackpot of $7 million at stake: 01, 02, 16, 27, 32, and Mega 18.  One person had FIVE numbers but no Mega for a prize of $27,123.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #795 with a jackpot of $179 million: 04, 05, 17, 43, 52, and Powerball 05.  The highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $36,296. 
  67. 2020 Wednesday G: Running unopposed for another term as speaker of the House, Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi wins to the shock of many.  It demonstrates how chicken-s**t the Democrats in the House are that they are afraid of challenging the 80-year-old, mostly senile, incoherent speaker seeing as how she has produced the slimmest ‘majority’ in the history of the U.S. House of Representatives losing 12 incumbent seats and gaining NONE.  Democrats boot her out NOW!
  68. 2021 Thursday: Stay tuned for tonight’s Thursday Night Football matchup: the New England Patriots at the Atlanta Falcons.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

After floundering about for a while, Sandy Denny’s husband discovered- like other family members of deceased artists- that the family of Sandy Denny along with her record label compiled a ‘best of’ collection for the ill-fated artist that came out on June 15, 1987: “The Best of Sandy Denny.”  The album features a collection of 16 glorious tracks running from her earliest days through her association with Fairport Convention to Fotheringay to Fairport Convention again and onto her final solo career.  We hope you will investigate this one for yourselves, give it a good listen, and then consider adding it to your growing collection of music from this devoted vocalist and songwriter.  You will be so glad you did.  Enjoy.

TODAY IN HISTORY, THURSDAY NOVEMBER 18, 2021, BLOG POST #4,256

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

Wednesday, November 18, 2020, Today in History Blog Post:   

Everything the Democrats claim as TRUTH is little more than a LIE- NO, they did not win the 2020 Presidential Election, NO, humankind is NOT RESPONSIBLE for Climate Change, and the Chi-Coms are NOT our friends

Wednesday, November 18, 2020, Today in History:  

We feel compelled to share with our new readers that we are an OPINION SITE and not a NEWS SITE although we do report the news.  If anything, we are big history buffs which is why we have been going strong since early 2009…


Thursday, November 18, 2021:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We promoted the music of Blue Cheer- one of the wildest acid rock bands of all time, beginning on Sunday, 25-November-2012 through Wednesday, 12-December-2012.  We hope you seek this famed band out and add them to your collection; you will be glad you did.

[ii] We began promoting the music of this famed psychedelic band- Strawberry Alarm Clock- beginning on Tuesday, 03-April-2012 through Saturday, 08-April-2012. Please check them out- you will enjoy them.

[iii] We began promoting the music of Santana on Tuesday, 28-August-2012 through Tuesday, 23-October-2012.  We hope you will seek the music of this famed man and his band out wherever you can find them.

[iv] When we begin doing the music of the 1990s onward, you can bet that Metallica will be among the bands.  Others will include Nirvana, Stone Temple Pilots, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, and others so make sure you remain riveted to the glorious AICPENDBLOG.COM.  Thank you.

[v] We hope to promote the music of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, as well as of each member’s solo careers along with Crazy Horse within the next 5-7 years.  Please remain vigilant for when we do.

[vi] It does not require a genius to understand that every Republican president since Ronald Reagan has been the target of outraged Democrats who seek to overthrow the legal system and impeach every GOP president.  Time for this bulls**t to end.

[vii] These illegal protests in Hong Kong continue into 2019 and it is clear that they are out of control and need to be shut down.  Hong Kong is Chinese territory, and it should be clear to all that they have been quite patient in their response while awaiting the perpetrators to meet them halfway.

[viii] We are not sure when AC/DC will be in the works, but you bet they will be at some point, possibly in 2027-2028.

[ix] That’s right- we said it: the Chi-Coms provide many of the engineers involved in the project as well as lesser workers.  This is a criminal scam, and everyone knows it. 

[x] Mayor Pete is doing great with the Bath House vote but cannot attract black voters to his cause (and why would they join him?- editor’s note 2019).  We lovingly refer to Mayor Pete as “Little Queenie.”

[xi] Chris Matthews claims it was the sound of a coffee mug being scraped across the desk.  You be the judge: <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aKLn-qjlM_Y >

  61. 2012 Saturday: The U.S. space shuttle, Endeavor, inches its way through Los Angeles city streets on a trolley, bound for a museum within the city.

  69. 2020 Tuesday: Watching the Amy Coney Barrett confirmation hearings for the Supreme Court tells interested viewers several things: first, that term limits are in desperate need for members of Congress. Watching the 80-year-old Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-VT, was a horrifying struggle.  The man is approaching “Pro-China Joe” Biden levels of senility.  Second, we see that Judge Barrett is stunning in her intelligence and that she can answer any question, shag any case, and do it without a note in front of her.  She did, after all, graduate number one in her class at Notre Dame’s Law School.  The Dems are unable to phase her, so we await whatever concoction they are going to cook up in the ‘meth lab’ of schemes.   Something we notice at the hearings is that each Democrat on the committee puts BIG PHOTOS of those they claim are going to be affected by potential Supreme Court Associate Justice Barrett should she vote to topple Obamacare.  They attack her for destroying their beloved ACA yet they are the ones pushing Medicare-for-All as a replacement for Obamacare.  They love it so much, yet they want to throw the crap on the rubbish heap.  What?
  70. 2020 Tuesday A: Having mentioned “Pro-China Joe” Biden in the previous segment, we must say that the man’s dementia is becoming rapidly worse. He could not remember then-Governor Mitt Romney’s name when he and his boss, Barack Hussein Obama, were battling them in 2012.  At a limited appearance yesterday, Mr. Biden, stumbling about for words called Romney, ‘uh, that Mormon guy,’ and he also said that once again, he’s running for the “U.S. Senate.”  When this is over, someone is going to have to charge Dr. Jill Biden with felonious elder abuse.  This ain’t right.   Speaking of Biden, his campaign is outspending the Trump campaign on radio ads at a rate of 50-1 but it does not seem to be making a difference as attendance at his functions is dire while those at Trump rallies are astronomical in size.   White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany says, ‘that Trump’s rallies won’t change due to the threat of COVID-19,’ the dreaded Chi-Vi, the one the Chi-Coms infected the world.
  71. 2020 Tuesday B: Johnson & Johnson halts a Chinese Virus vaccine trial due to a participant contracting a mystery illness.  Meanwhile, Islamist and unchaste Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan “Allah Akbar!” Omar says, ‘imagine what the GOP would do if they were to face a Muslim female candidate for the U.S., Supreme Court.’  Look, ignoramus, we could care less what religion one is who sits on the court (well, maybe a Satanist) as long as if they are a Muslim, they have undergone a reformation of sorts and don’t believe in this vile jurisprudence of Sharia.  Congresswoman shut your corrupt pie hole.  We hope you lose next month.  
  72. 2020 Tuesday C: The U.S. Supreme Court rebuffed a case concerning the defunding of the baby body chop shop, Planned Parenthood.  Speaking of the court, President Donald J. Trump’s attorneys are before the Supreme Court again, trying to shield his tax records from the ravenous Democrats.   The court also booted the Democrats’ anti-corruption lawsuit they filed against President Trump.  No wonder the Dems are chomping at the bit.  Speaking of President Trump, he rips Dr. Tony Fauci over his recent comments concerning a Trump political ad in which, the now-proven incorrect medical professional in which Fauci said ‘it would not be right if Trump were to use his words in another campaign ad.’  Oh, boohoo.  Now that the World Health Organization has proclaimed, “SHUTDOWNS ARE WRONG” and that ‘world poverty rates have doubled over the shutdowns of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu,’ what else can Dr. Fauci say?  He did say, “NO MASKS were required” early on, then he said everyone ‘should wear masks,’ and later for a brief moment, he said, ‘we should all wear goggles, too.’  What is up with this hack?
  73. 2020 Tuesday D: Facebook says it will ban anti-vaccine ads on its platform. Big whoop.   National polling shows that “Pro-China Joe” Biden leads Donald Trump with a commanding lead of 55-45 percent or more which- if we are to believe the polls- is insurmountable.  Yeah, right!  Speaking of “Beijing Joe,” his former boss, Barack Obama, is going to stump on the trail for his former Number 2.  Obama has NEVER had coattails- except in 2008- so the Biden campaign should expect NO miracles.   Meanwhile, Democratic Party bigwig and former Clinton adviser James Carville says, ‘we’ll know the results of the election by 10:30 P.M. ET.” 
  74. 2020 Tuesday E: Hawaiian Senator Mazie Hirono (Tulsi Gabbard would be a much better representative for the state than this angry old dyke) asked SCOTUS nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett if she ‘has sexually assaulted anyone since becoming an adult’ at the hearings on Capitol Hill today. Our Hawaiian members would love to see Mazie displaced in 2024 and Tulsi Gabbard take her place in the U.S. Senate.  Meanwhile, we still have an NFL game tonight: (16) Buffalo Bills, 16 (4-1) @ Tennessee Titans, 42 (4-0) Tuesday Night Football.

NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE FOUR STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.448 per gallon, $3.178 in Florida, $4.158 in Hawaii, and $3.862 in Washington state.[xv] Let us look at one other Pennsylvania: $3.440.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the tenth LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Ethiopia: $1.751 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,872,731,497,221 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after communist China, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is United Kingdom with $440,000,000 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  85. 2021 Wednesday F: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE I- To our readers, today is Day No. 202 for the world-famous ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 109 since her sole visit anywhere within the region. Perhaps President Donald J. Trump should revisit the border so she can rush another trip down there to do her job.    Here are the stats as presented by One America News for the ILLEGAL ALIEN INVASION.  First, here is the cost for just this day of caring for the millions of illegal aliens flooding the country: $529,870,752.  Second, here is the cost for the entire year so far of caring for the illegal aliens: $312,858,738,688.  Third, here is the number of illegals who have swept across the border just this year: 3,206,551.  Finally, here is the conservative low estimate of illegals lurking within the country as we speak: 37,206,550.  We say, “Round them up and deport them back to whence the f**k they came.”  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  86. 2021 Wednesday G: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE II- On Tucker Carlson’s program tonight, reporter Bill Melugin reported that a federal source has blown the whistle that over the past two months, the Biden regime has released 70,000 illegal aliens into the country by granting them parole. This means they can obtain green cards and other benefits of being an American while another 94,570 have been given notices to appear over the past 10 weeks. All, told, the Biden regime has dumped more than 100,000 illegal aliens across the country in a short amount of time.  This is not good.  Build the wall and deport them all.  Stephen Miller, America First Legal Scholar and Trump advisor says that Joe Biden has ‘effectively abolished ICE by stopping agents from arresting most illegal aliens.’  In essence, Joe Biden is PROMOTING an invasion of the United States.  Finally, Mexico informed the Biden regime that the invasion is ‘going to continue’ unless the United States ponies up CASH).
  87. 2021 Wednesday H: COVID-19 LOCKDOWNS-RESTRICTIONS-AND AUTHORITARIANISM NEWS- Much to the horror of the power-mad Democrats, the U.S. Military’s archbishop says that it’s ‘okay for Catholic troops to refuse getting the vaccine for the Chi-Vi.’
  88. 2021 Wednesday I: COVID-19 LOCKDOWNS-RESTRICTIONS-AND AUTHORITARIANISM NEWS- Much to the horror of the power-mad Democrats, the U.S. Military’s archbishop says that it’s ‘okay for Catholic troops to refuse getting the vaccine for the Chi-Vi.’
  89. 2021 Wednesday J: VACCINE MANUFACTURERS’ STOCK PRICES (FOLLOW THE MONEY) NEWS-(1) Pfizer $41.42 (2) AstraZeneca $60.45 (3) Johnson & Johnson $159.20 (4) BioNTech $249.40 (5) Moderna $321.50.
  90. 2021 Wednesday K: MILITARY SUPPLIERS’ STOCK PRICES (FOLLOW THE MONEY 2) NEWS- (1) Raytheon: $89.68 (2) General Dynamics: $203.39 (3) Boeing: $221.78 (4) Lockheed Martin: $361.76 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $388.70.

  94. 2021 Wednesday O: JOE BIDEN’S DAILY DISASTER- It would appear that Joe Biden’s usefulness to the Democrats is nearing an end as a new report says that ‘Joe Biden and son, Hunter, shared bank accounts together’ which means that bagman Hunter was able to get money to the ‘BIG GUY’- his dad. So much for the push by the Biden regime to promote an anti-corruption theme.  Another disaster befell the aged usurper today as we learn that as Joe’s approval numbers continue plummeting, one of the BIGGEST losses is among black voters, a key Democratic Party constituent (that is, until the Dems inserted illegal aliens in their place at their table of power).
  95. 2021 Wednesday P: JOE BIDEN REGIME NEWS I- The Biden regime announced it is going to reopen both the U.S.-Canada and U.S.-Mexico borders to visitors who are fully vaccinated. All travelers regardless of their business will be able to arrive unmolested by border authorities as long as they can show proof of full vaccination.  Meanwhile, the Biden regime is alerting the states that soon, all children must undergo vaccination with the still experimental vaccines for the Xi Jinping Never-Ending Pandemic.    Next, dictator Joe Biden went before the microphone banks today and reading from his teleprompter on his set that resembles the White House told the American people that the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, California, are going to run 24/7 so the goods currently trapped on more than a hundred cargo ships offshore can reach the American people.
  96. 2021 Wednesday Q: JOE BIDEN REGIME NEWS II- The Biden regime is going to ‘host’ a summit on combating ransomware. That’s going to be fun.  Next, Social Security announces a 5.9-percent COLA for recipients, the largest such increase in decades.  Next, the U.S. State Department taps veteran ambassador Elizabeth Jones to help with the resettlement of Afghan refugees to a town or neighborhood near you.
  97. 2021 Wednesday R: NANCY PELOSI’S JANUARY 06-2021 FALSE FLAG OPERATION- Federal Judge Royce Lamberth[xviii] threw water on U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s bogus ‘committee’ on the events of January 06, 2021, by saying that ‘this is still America’ and orders the U.S. Department of Justice to launch a civil rights investigation into the detainees from that day (the ones who weren’t FBI informants, plants, paid Antifa and BLM thugs) who remain incarcerated and are suffering at the hands of Joestapo guards and fellow prisoners. Most of these people committed no crime worse than trespass and yet they were scooped up in their home states, flown to D.C., and are being summarily held in the D.C. slammer until they go to trial sometime next summer.  This ain’t America, folks.
  98. 2021 Wednesday S: POLITICAL NEWS I- Senator “Crazy Bernie” Sanders says that the inclusion of the Medicare expansion that he and his fellow communists seek in the budget reconciliation bill is ‘nonnegotiable.’ Next, the Dems use their extremely slim majority to pass the bill related to raising the debt ceiling.  Congressman Jason Smith, R-MO 8th congressional district, says that the “Dems should provide a price tag along with their sales pitch” of all the crazy stuff they are trying to force down the throats of the American people. 
  99. 2021 Wednesday T: POLITICAL NEWS II- Congressman James Comer, R-KY 1st congressional district, commented that the ‘infighting among the Dems is a defining moment.’ In other political news, former Governor Chris “Lard Lad” Christie, RINO-NJ, is picking 2022 candidates to support (like he’s so popular after Bridge Gate and his RINO politics) and is mulling a 2024 run.   Elsewhere, famed fiction writer Bob Woodward says that ‘Donald J. Trump enjoys greater power as an ex-president than any other before him’ (in his memory).   Meanwhile, Congressman Matt Rosendale, R-MT at-large district, says that ‘Joe Biden’s supply chain problems are making the United States look like Russia.’
  100. 2021 Wednesday U: BUSINESS NEWS- Nordstrom is going to hire 28,000 employees to handle the Christmas holidays in the United States and Canada. Next, due to the ongoing chip shortage around the world, Apple is going to slow production of its iPhone 13. Elsewhere, Etihad Airlines is going to increase its reach via a $1.2 billion loan with which to fulfill its global aviation targets.  Meanwhile, Netflix’s ‘squid game’ has become the most popular in the history of gaming and reportedly is driving people to want to learn how to speak Korean. 
  101. 2021 Wednesday V: CRIME AND PUNISHMENT NEWS-LAW ENFORCEMENT NEWS I- Thanks to all the misinformation, lack of trust in the media, and healthcare professionals changing their tune like a pinball leaping around in a machine, a Texas anti-vaxxer- Eli Scott Harris- was charged yesterday for threatening violence against a CNN medical contributor- Dr. Leanna Wen- who is a big proponent of everyone getting the vaccine. Look, can we just return to being fellow Americans and be able to discuss something as personal as getting/not getting vaccinated for a disease that is relatively mild for most?  This is becoming crazier by the day.
  102. 2021 Wednesday W: POPULAR CULTURE NEWS- The members of the AICPENDBLOG.COM agree that we NEVER thought we were going to see this: the Rolling Stones bowing down to Cancel Culture. That’s right- due to misconceptions about the meaning of the 1971 smash hit, “Brown Sugar,” that was on the “Sticky Fingers” album, they are going to RETIRE it from their playlist.  We say, “Screw them- what a bunch of pansies.”  We won’t be promoting their music anymore and we might remove their birthdays from our list.  Embarrassing, totally embarrassing, just like when Mick Jagger apologized for the line in another big hit tune, “Some Girls,” (1978) in which, he said ‘black girls like to get f**ked all night.’  Jagger apologized for that one, we think- 10-15 years ago.  Ah, well, they were great when they didn’t give a f**k about what others thought of them.   In other PC news, actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson says he has completed his initial investigation into whether he should run for president of the United States or not. 
  103. 2021 Wednesday X: NASA, SPACE, AND UFO NEWS- After blasting off aboard Jeff Bezos’ rocket that truly resembles a BIG FLYING DONG into outer space and then returning to planet Earth, William Shatner- aka Captain James Tiberias Kirk of ‘Star Trek’ fame- becomes the oldest person to journey into space at the age of 90.  Congratulations, ‘Captain!’
  104. 2021 Wednesday Y: FAKE NEWS I- The fake news media won’t touch the tragic tale of the rape case in Loudoun County, Virginia, of a 14-year-old girl trapped in a bathroom by a punk wearing a skirt who then raped and sodomized her. The only ones who do- like Joy “Race-Baiter” Reid criticize the distressed patriarch as some sort of white extremist/full-blown KKK terrorist.  We wish “Race-Baiter” Reid would just shut her pouty piehole.  Enough with race-baiting already, you remind us of Julius Streicher.  Still, the Loudoun County school board is coming under increasing fire over its denial of at least two violent sexual assaults in their schools and probably numerous others.  (Note- things are only going to get worse with millions of illegal aliens being dumped across the country and stuffed into our school systems).
  105. 2021 Wednesday Z: CALIFORNIA STATE NEWS- President Ronald Reagan’s ranch in Santa Barbara, California, is in imminent danger of being consumed by the Alisal Fire. Question: will Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom divert necessary resources elsewhere and allow a conservative icon’s property to go up in yet another wildfire or will he do the right thing and save it for future generations to enjoy and to learn from?
  106. 2021 Wednesday AA: RHODE ISLAND NEWS- Providence Schools is seeking to fire popular teacher Ramona Bessinger because the brave educator blew the whistle on the subversive Critical (Criminal) Race Theory currently being taught to students in the Ocean State. We thought whistleblowers enjoyed all manner of protections.  What the heck?
  107. 2021 Wednesday BB: SPORTS NEWS I- Now that the NFL has done an excellent job destroying once future Hall of Famer Coach Jon Gruden, the front desk announces there will be no more Gruden-like emails released. Something ain’t right here, folks; no, something is very peculiar.  Meanwhile, a Mississippi state auditor orders former NFL quarterback and Hall of Famer Brett Favre to repay the state $828,000 or face an imminent lawsuit.
  108. 2021 Wednesday CC: CALIFORNIA LOTTERY RESULTS-SUPER LOTTO AND POWERBALL DRAWS- First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3603 what with a $25 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 01, 14, 21, 37, 40, and Mega 23. Out of 101,187 winning tickets, the highest winners were five people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $3,642 apiece.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #897 with a jackpot of $50 million up for grabs: 23, 29, 47, 59, 60, and Mega 15.
  109. 2021 Wednesday DD: As everyone knows, when we have information on what the Chi-Coms and their milksop lackeys are up to today, we will let you know so we hope you will check in with us throughout your day…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Guitar maestro Richard Thompson got around to his first solo album, “Henry the Human Fly,” that Warner Bros. released on April 16, 1972.  For a debut, it was somewhat inauspicious and according to the artist, it may have been the worst-selling album in the company’s catalog.  That aside, Richard Thompson would become one of the most endearing solo artists in the world because of his amazing musical talents, his lyrical abilities, and his somewhat sardonic albeit perverse wit.  Like all good songwriters, he has a cast of characters who find themselves in all sorts of oddball positions in life and thus we have a talent that will delight audiences for, uh, going on now fifty-plus years.  Joining the guitarist/vocalist are a cast of characters as diverse as his topics: Pat Donaldson (bass), Sandy Denny (piano, vocals), and numerous others who contribute all manner of acoustic, brass, and stringed instruments.  We hope you will rush out and seek this stunning hodgepodge of musical delight and will add it to your growing collection- you will be glad you did; we guarantee it.

278. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, OCTOBER 05, 2021

22. 1944 Thursday: The air war continues to rage over Berlin as RAF bombers appear over the capital at night while the U.S. Army Air Force conducts daylight bombings. Antiaircraft fire coursing into the sky from the infamous flak towers in the middle of the city account for many of the planes blasted out of the skies while the Luftwaffe gets credit for numerous others. Still, every bomb dropped is a moral victory for the Allies as Hitler and Joseph Goebbels said, “NO Allied bombs would ever fall on the mighty city.”

In New York City, Trump supporters took over 5th Avenue and blasted their support for the ailing president.  Didn’t moronic Governor Andrew Cuomo claim that ‘Trump would need an army if he wanted to show his face in New York?’  Well, there’s your army, you frigging dimwit. C’ est la vie.  Meanwhile, the Presidential Debate Commission is recommending that all participants and guests wear masks at all subsequent debates.  Elsewhere, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany announces that she, too, has tested positive for the Chi-Vi.  What is going on?  Who seeded the White House with the Chinese Virus?  Look to the kitchens, investigators, look to the kitchens… Finally, Anthony Scaramucci says that since Trump is sick, he ‘should drop out of the race.’  F-off Mooch!

Trump has made us energy independent and that our environment is cleaner now than it was when he assumed office.   
  55. 2020 Monday B: Regarding the Chi-Vi, Ireland says it may enact a second Wuhan Virus shutdown due to rising numbers, 110 per 100,000 citizens.  In New York City, Mayor Bill Di Blasio says he ‘is going to shutdown specific sections of the city where Bat Virus cases are rising,’ neighborhoods that are mostly Jewish.  Say what, Mr. anti-Semitic mayor?  
  56. 2020 Monday C: At 6:39 P.M. President Donald J. Trump walked out the front door of Walter Reed Medical Center.  Although not entirely out of the woods yet as his doctors said, he is on the mend and will be closely watched by physicians at the White House.   Self-proclaimed ‘conservative,’ and Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin, says via Tweet that taxpayer dollars should no longer go to funding the Walter Reed Medical Center and that Maryland should pull the medical license of Trump’s treating Dr. Sean Conley.  And these people claim to be ‘balanced.’

Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop him.  He has surpassed President Donald J.

  67. 2021 Tuesday G: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE I- The state of Texas is gearing up for a possible surge of 60,000 illegals in the coming weeks.  Deploy troops to the border and begin shooting them.  A few thousand dollars’ worth of lead will do more than giving Central American nations and Mexico billions of dollars to halt the crisis.  We also must note that today marks Day No. 194 for the world-famous ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the mess on the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 101 since her sole visit to the border to do her job.  Where can we find NO SHOW jobs like the one, she has?

  70. 2021 Tuesday J: HEALTH AND MEDICAL ALERTS- Ahead of next year’s coming retribution against the Democrats in the 2022 Mid-Term Elections, NIH Director Dr. Francis Collins is going to retire at the end of the year.  Many speculate he is doing this so he can avoid being dragged before Congress and forced to answer questions regarding how the Wuhan Institute of Virology received tens of billions of U.S. taxpayer monies to fund ‘gain of function research.’  We hope you won’t get away.  In other oppressive Biden regime-related news regarding the Chi-Vi, the U.S. military is ignoring requests for religious and/or medical exceptions for the vaccines being forced atop U.S. servicemembers.  Stand strong, fellow Americans, stand strong.
  71. 2021 Tuesday K: COVID-19 LOCKDOWNS-RESTRICTIONS-AND AUTHORITARIANISM NEWS- Kaiser Permanente today suspended 5,000 employees for refusing to undergo vaccination with the Xi Jinping Bat Flu inoculations.  Shame.  Elsewhere, the biggest healthcare provider in New York State terminated the employment of 1,400 employees for similar refusals.  Wow.

  79. 2021 Tuesday S: POLITICAL NEWS I- We have all seen the depressing video of angry illegal alien political hacks harassing Senator Kyrsten Sinema in the public crapper.  Shameful.  Well, we learn today that George Soros-funded groups are behind the harassment.  These scumbag illegal alien hirelings are going after the feisty Arizona Democrat to force her into supporting the “Build Back Better Agenda” which many of us here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM believe they are stupid to understand much less comprehend.  Likewise, other left-wing hirelings are going after Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, trying to force him into supporting this bull crap.  Finally, as the left continues ramping up its efforts to intimidate and persecute their real and perceived enemies, former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich warns them softly that ‘there’s more of us than there are of YOU.’  Amen.
  80. 2021 Tuesday T: POLITICAL NEWS II- Ever-mercurial former Ambassador Nikki Haley says the “GOP needs Donald Trump.”  (Note- she’s still trying to get on his good side).  Meanwhile, a new report suggests that Democrats are losing the voter registration battle in battleground states.  NOT a good sign.  Next, Congressman Rob Wittman, R-VA 1st congressional district, says the GOP has a new bill with which to demand accountability from the Chi-Coms on COVID-19.  Elsewhere, Vice President Mike Pence is lighting up the left by saying today the Dems use the (FALSE FLAG OPERATION of) January 06, 2021, as a weapon with which to club President Donald J. Trump and Trump-Pence supporters over the head.  Amen.
  81. 2021 Tuesday U: POLITICAL NEWS III- Congresswoman Ashley Hinson, R-IA 1st congressional district, says that all along, the Democrats have wanted combined spending bills.  Elsewhere, third party hack Evan McMullin announced he is going to challenge conservative Utah Senator Mike Lee, Republican.  What the hell is up with this bonehead, McMullin?  It’s a waste of money, time, and effort and, by the way, what is wrong with Senator Lee?
  82. 2021 Tuesday V: SOCIAL MEDIA NEWS – Frances Haugen- a so-called Facebook whistleblower, someone we believe is most likely a plant sent by Mark Zuckerberg himself- sat before the U.S. Senate Commerce Committee’s subcommittee Product Safety and Data Security and spilled her guts as to how terrible things are at Facebook when it comes to social media harming young kids and viewing pre-teens as an untapped source to lure in and violate.  Chairman Senator Richard “Dick” Blumenthal, DS-CT, says that the ‘SEC and FTC should investigate the whistleblower’s claims.’  Congressman Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, says that the ‘whistleblower’s testimony diverts from the real crime, Facebook’s unabashed war on conservatives.’

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The sophomore effort by English band Fairport Convention- “What We Did on our Holidays”- came out on January 12, 1969.  The band featured a change in the lineup- Judy Dyble out and Sandy Denny (vocals, guitars, keyboards) in her place.  The lineup now featured Iain Matthews (lead vocals, congas), Richard Thompson (guitars, vocals, and other stringed instruments), Simon Nichol (guitars, vocals), Ashley Hutchings (basses, jug), and Martin Lamble (drums, percussion, and violin).  The album saw the band moving to much more of a folk-rock sound without some of the electric elements that fans, and music critics said made them sound like an English version of the Jefferson Airplane.  Still, it’s a great follow up to a superb debut album and we encourage everyone to visit your favorite site for the best in rock-and-roll music and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure- you will be glad you did.

Meanwhile, enemies of the president continue claiming he called dead U.S. servicemen from the First World War ‘losers’ and ‘suckers’ during a visit to France in 2018. Jennifer Griffin of Fox News Channel swears she has numerous sources claiming it to be 150-percent true, yet they won’t come forward out of fear of mean Tweets (by Trump) that will be sent their way. Oh, please, if the ‘sources’ are Generals John Kelly and “Mad Dog” Mattis and a creep such as Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, we know how honest these ‘sources’ are. Crybabies.

The Supreme Court is expected to decide by June 2020 whether the president can terminate this bulls**t program.  We shall see.  Meanwhile, Hurricane Irma strengthened to a Category 5 storm as it approached the northeast Caribbean on a path toward the United States with winds in excess of 185 mph.       
  54. 2018 Wednesday: In yet another bogus article in the New York Times’ opinion page, a ‘White House official desiring anonymity suggests that he or she is part of the anti-Donald J. Trump resistance.’  Find ‘em and shoot ‘em.  I mean, can you imagine someone having done this to Herr Barack Hussein Obama?[xi]  Man, it would have gotten extremely ugly.  Yet, President Trump perseveres to this day.
  55. 2019 Thursday: After investigating the Loch Ness Monster- fondly known as “Nessie”- scientists report that ‘she could be a giant eel after DNA evidence (what kind of evidence?) says that there is NO plesiosaur or sturgeon in it.’  Well, okay, some eels have been known to achieve incredible size so we shall await further evidence.
  56. 2020 Saturday: Today, the Fraternal Order of Police’s National President Patrick Yoes announces on Fox News Channel that all fifty states’ FOPs are going to endorse President Donald J. Trump for re-election.  Meanwhile, restauranteurs in New York City continue signing onto the class-action lawsuit against lowlife Mayor Bill Di Blasio, Democrat, over the continued closure of indoor dining at every restaurant while right across county lines, everything is open for business.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump announces that the Pentagon will NOT slash the $15.5 million necessary to fund the U.S. military newspaper Stars and Stripes.  Excellent.
  57. 2020 Saturday A: Meanwhile, enemies of the president continue claiming he called dead U.S. servicemen from the First World War ‘losers’ and ‘suckers’ during a visit to France in 2018. Jennifer Griffin of Fox News Channel swears she has numerous sources claiming it to be 150-percent true, yet they won’t come forward out of fear of mean Tweets (by Trump) that will be sent their way.  Oh, please, if the ‘sources’ are Generals John Kelly and “Mad Dog” Mattis and a creep such as Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, we know how honest these ‘sources’ are.  Crybabies.
  58. 2020 Saturday B: We learn today that at least 44 states and the District of Columbia will allow mail-in voting.  We learn, too, that in primaries this year in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, at least 60,000 ballots were rejected for whatever the reason.  We also learn that in 2016, 1.4-percent of all mail-in ballots were returned as ‘undeliverable.’  Really instills a great feeling of confidence.
  59. 2020 Saturday C: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 26,622,706 confirmed cases, +184,820, 874,708, confirmed deaths, +3,503, and 17,717,911 confirmed recoveries, +144,378.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 6,337,674 confirmed cases, up 51,426 from yesterday’s reporting, 191,624 confirmed deaths, UP 937, and 3,402,868 confirmed recoveries, UP 26,531.  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: 732,726 confirmed cases, 13,645 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 9,473 confirmed cases, 81 confirmed deaths, and 2,855 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 79,731 confirmed cases, 2,043 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: North Dakota- currently, they have 13,338 confirmed cases, 159 confirmed deaths, and 219 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Doug Burgum for your state’s honesty in this regard.
  60. 2020 Saturday D: In Portland, Oregon, tonight will be the 101st straight day of upheaval, rioting, looting, arson, assault, rape, mob violence, and other lowlife behavior which is why NO one should ever want to visit the city much less pass though this reprobate state where law and order does not exist and commie violence is part of the fabric.  Meanwhile, in Rochester, N.Y., following the death of a black man several days ago, the cops arrest at least 11 rioters while three cops are injured.  Will it ever end?  Meanwhile, in the 146th running of the Kentucky Derby, Authentic holds off Tiz The Law, winning an upset, which gives Bob Baffert yet another win.  Outside, Black Lives Matter protest the Derby as somehow being ‘racist.’  Enough already!
  61. 2020 Saturday E: After watching Tucker Carlson discussing the criminality of the toxic ‘Critical Race Theory’ on the previous day, a disgusting attempt by hack social scientists such as Robin Di Angelo to profit from dividing Americans from one another based on a vast variety of different groups and sub-groups- he signs an executive order banning this bulls**t from being forced on federal employees.  Thank you, President Trump, for working had to save the country from poisonous liberalism. 
  62. 2021 Sunday: Labor Day Weekend

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by Martin Barre- “Live at the Factory Underground”- came out on February 14, 2019.  The famed guitarist and one of the longest-serving members of Jethro Tull went out and conducted a musical celebration of his half century in the music industry.  He performed his tunes as well as those of Jethro Tull and what a show it was.  The band features Mr. Barre (guitars, mandolins, banjos, flutes, and keyboards), Dan Crisp (guitars and vocals), George Lindsey and David Schoepke (drums and percussion), and Alan Thompson (bass, vocals).  Say what you will about the old timers, compared to modern-day garbage, this man lights the stage on fire.  We hope that everyone will go to their favorite site for the absolute best in rock and roll music and pick it up.  You will be glad you did.

ENDNOTES:


[i] We began promoting the music of Queen- as well as its individual members (Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor, and John Deacon)- on Monday, 14-January-2019 through Monday, 01-April-2019.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[ii] We promoted the music of King Crimson, one of the greatest prog-rock bands of all time beginning on Monday, 20-October-2014 through Sunday, 21-December-2014.  We hope you will check them out as the remain active to this day.

[iii] We look forward to presenting the music of Electric Flag sometime within the next 15-20 years.

[iv] We promoted the music of the Jimi Hendrix Experience and of Jimi Hendrix, beginning on Sunday, 22-December-2013 through Thursday, 16-January-2014.  Look for them and add them to your collection.

[v] We should have promoted the music of Journey around the time we did the music of Santana. We hope to do so sometime within the next 10-12 years.  We hope you will remain alert for the day when we do.

[vi] We look forward to sharing the music of this influential British band within the next five years.  Colosseum was overlooked when we shared the group of interconnected bands in which, Humble Pie, was a part.  Sorry for the oversight.

[vii] We promoted the music of this venerable British rock band as part of a series of interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This included the Small Faces, Faces, Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood, Jeff Beck, Steve Marriott, Humble Pie, and other interconnected parts.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[viii] We hope to present the music of this foundational American rock band within the next 5-6 years.  Please stay tuned for further developments.  We thank you; we know you love the Beach Boys as much as we do

[ix] We promoted the music of a group of interconnected venerable British rock bands as part of a series of interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This included the Small Faces, Faces, Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood, Jeff Beck, Steve Marriott, Humble Pie, and other interconnected parts.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.  The music of Faces’ keyboardist Ian McLagan was also included in this lengthy and comprehensive presentation.

[x] We hope to do the music of Bonnie Raitt one day, too.

[xi] The Obama Justice Department- whether in the hands of Eric Holder or Loretta Lynch- tapped reporters phone lines more than any other president, hauled them into court to force them to disclose sources, and prosecuted more than three-times the amount of uncovered leakers than any president has, either before or after him.   Yet, Democrats shed tears that Trump is an ‘enemy of the press.’  No, the Fake News Media is the enemy of the American people.

WE THANK EVERYONE FOR JOINING US AT WORDPRESS.COM AND FOR AIDING US IN CONTINUING TO DO THE WORK WE TOOK UPON OURSELVES MORE THAN A DECADE AGO

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

Democrats seek to tax everything like the plan to take another bite at the apple here in California and tax money they’ve already taxed- WTF?

SSS. 2020 Friday F: Oregon Governor Kate Brown- when asked WHY she won’t send the Oregon National Guard into Portland, Oregon, to stop what will be soon 100 nights of unrest, she told a reporter that the ‘Guard is not trained in law-enforcement matters.’ In other words, rioters, and looters, continue doing what you are doing because NO one is going to stop you from running amok.

  65. 2020 Friday:  Today’s attempt to bring down President Donald J. Trump comes to us from an article in The Atlantic magazine in which in 2018, the president called fallen U.S. soldiers at a U.S. military cemetery “losers and suckers.”  Four unnamed sources claim this is so just as they contend that President Trump also ‘didn’t think that wounded U.S. soldiers should participate in military parades.’  Most people believe that Generals John Kelly and “Mad Dog” Mattis are two of the sources but the sources say they won’t come forward out of fear of ‘angry Tweets.’  Uh, okay.
  66. 2020 Friday A: When federal agents go to arrest the Antifa POS who murdered Aaron “Jay” Danielson, a member of Patriot Prayer, a conservative peace group in Portland, Oregon, last weekend, the perp- Michael Reinoehl drew a handgun and was shot dead.  Good riddance.  Meanwhile, in San Francisco, Speaker Nancy Pelosi finds herself under verbal assault as protesters go after her for violating her own rules about wearing face masks and not going to hairdressers for indoor appointments.  The old bat continues claiming ‘I was set up.’  We hope that AOC-backed Shahid Buttar cleans your clock on November 03.
  67. 2020 Friday B: In the Oval Office today, the president of Serbia- Aleksandar Vučić and the prime minister of Kosovo- Avdullah Hoti- sign an economic peace deal before the watchful gaze of President Donald J. Trump which will benefit both nations.  In so doing, Kosovo- a largely Muslim country- agrees to recognize Israel and Serbia says it will move its embassy to Jerusalem.  Fantastic!   Speaking of Trump, his approval ratings have climbed back to 52-percent, what they were before the Yellow Flu hit the U.S. Elsewhere, Hilton Hotels says it is going to close its mega-hotel in New York’s Times Square permanently.  The state and city continue losing businesses thanks to the mismanagement of Governor Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill Di Blasio. 
  68. 2020 Friday C: As economic news continues being positive for August, we learn that 1.37 million new jobs were created and that the jobless rate fell to 8.4-percent.  Democrats continue whining and screeching that Trump is destroying the economy while “Pro-China Joe” Biden continues expanding on his theme he mentioned yesterday: ‘I can’t tell you my tax plan because “they’ll shoot me.”  Your tax plan’s that bad Joe?  Maybe you shouldn’t win in November!  Elsewhere, as of publication time, stocks continue falling after dropping 807 points on Thursday.
  69. 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: 26,398,466 confirmed cases, +323,857, 870,477, confirmed deaths, +6,324, and 17,565,712 confirmed recoveries, +228,328.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 6,283,209 confirmed cases, up 63,148 from yesterday’s reporting, 190,058 confirmed deaths, UP 1,204, and 3,373,378 confirmed recoveries, UP 84,857.  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: 727,072 confirmed cases, 13,497 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 9,202 confirmed cases, 79 confirmed deaths, and 2,778 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 79,121 confirmed cases, 2,034 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Oklahoma- currently, they have 62,040 confirmed cases, 846 confirmed deaths, and 5,213 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Kevin Stitt for your state’s honesty in this regard.
  70. 2020 Friday E: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 28,133.31, DOWN 159.42 points (-0.56%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  11,313.13, DOWN 114.97 points (-1.27%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,426.96, DOWN 28.10 points (-0.81%).  Price of GOLD: $1,940.90 per troy oz., +6.60 (+0.34%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $27.12 per troy oz., +0.403 (+1.51%).  Price of PLATINUM: $906.90 per troy oz., +8.70 (+0.97%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,304.00 per troy oz., +3.00 (+0.13%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.07 per #, +0.0125 (+0.41%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $39.51, -0.26 (-0.65%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.84 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.84 euros.
  71. 2020 Friday F: Oregon Governor Kate Brown- when asked WHY she won’t send the Oregon National Guard into Portland, Oregon, to stop what will be soon 100 nights of unrest, she told a reporter that the ‘Guard is not trained in law-enforcement matters.’  In other words, rioters, and looters, continue doing what you are doing because NO one is going to stop you from running amok.  Elsewhere, we learn that the explosion in Beirut, Lebanon’s port cost the city $3.2 billion, left 300,000 people homeless and claimed the lives of 191.  Although it’s not clear as to what set off the ammonium nitrate or why it had been stored in warehouses lining the port for what is said to be ‘years,’ we suspect that Hezbollah and its leader Hassan Nasrallah were keeping it there for use in attacks on neighboring Israel.  It is time a drone takes out Mr. Nasrallah as he is the next ranking terrorist in the world after Abu Bakr al-Baghdad and Gen. Qassim Soleimani.  Light ‘em up!
  72. 2021 Saturday: It’s Labor Day weekend- let’s hope the Chinese are NOT invading Taiwan this weekend…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Fans of Jethro Tull love guitarist Martin Barre because he continues the great band’s music with his own touches as he continues plowing ahead.  His new album, “Roads Less Travelled,” came out on August 09, 2018, and is a delightful addition to both his solo repertoire and to Jethro Tull’s interconnected discography.  The band features Mr. Barre (guitars, mandolins, banjos, flutes, and keyboards), Dan Crisp (guitars and vocals), Darby Todd (drums and percussion), Alan Thompson (bass, vocals), and 2-3 others.  We love the man, his band, and his music so folks, please seek this one out, give it a good listen, and consider adding it to your growing collection of nothing but the absolute best in rock music.

ENDNOTES:


[i] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.  At the time, we damned sure should have promoted the music of its various members such as Roger “Jim” McGuinn, Chris Hillman, Gene Clark, David Crosby (along with Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young and their associated catalog of group and solo endeavors), as well as later Byrds such as Gene Parsons and Skip Battin among others.  We hope to do so one day and hope that you will indulge us when we do.

[ii] 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.

[iii] We hope to share the music of Lynyrd Skynyrd sometime in the next decade.  At least by 2029 so please stay tuned for further news.  This would include the music of .38-Special, too. 

[iv] We are not sure as to when we will promote the music of the Pretenders but when we do, you will be the first to know so rejoice.

[v] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.

[vi] We promoted the music of the Who and of its individual band members beginning on Monday, 03-August-2015 through Sunday, 29-November-2015.  We hope you will seek out the music of this veteran British band as well as of Pete Townsend, John Entwistle, Keith Moon, and Roger Daltrey.  We know you will enjoy them.

[vii] The father of Mitt Romney who plagues our modern times with his RINO BS.

[viii] Sadly, we were not as attuned to the sharing of interconnected bands and musicians when we promoted Santana years ago but we do hope we will be able to promote the music of Journey at some point in the nest 10-12 years.

WE THANK EVERYONE FOR JOINING US AT WORDPRESS.COM AND FOR AIDING US IN CONTINUING TO DO THE WORK WE TOOK UPON OURSELVES MORE THAN A DECADE AGO

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

When Donald Trump wins re-election, how about in the second term, he fulfills the promise of erasing the ‘lines’ around the states so every health care insurer could compete and offer a vast variety of plans, affordable to all?

HHH. 2020 Tuesday: In Beirut, Lebanon, a tremendous blast felt as far as Cyprus, rips part of the port apart, killing between 75-100 people and injuring another 2,700-3,500. Speculation abounds with the Lebanese claiming it was a storage site for firecrackers (yeah, right) but we suspect the site was warehousing Iranian munitions bound for Hamas to use against Israel …

  54. 2014 Monday: Medical worker Nancy Writebol, the second of two Americans to contract the Ebola virus in Liberia, joins Dr. Kent Brantley at Emory University Hospital for treatment; both patients are receiving an experimental drug that scientists have not tested yet on humans. Elsewhere, Israel and Hamas enter into a 72-hour ceasefire, one brokered by Egypt.  Of course the Hamas trash will violate it.
  55. 2015 Tuesday: Following the questionable death of Zimbabwe’s beloved Cecil the Lion, Delta Airlines announces it will NO longer transport animal trophies, something they once did if hunters attained the trophies legally. Elsewhere, United Arab Emirates troops with tanks and artillery arrive in the Yemeni port city of Aden to take up the fight with their Saudi allies against the Iranian-backed Houthi scumbags. 
  56. 2016 Thursday: CBS News reports that candidate Donald Trump’s behavior on the campaign trail has been ‘so bizarre’ that many are left to wonder if he is a plant by the Hillary campaign or a secret agent in the employ of Russia. What a load of bogus BS.  This supports the proven theory that the Deep State, the Democratic Party, and their Fake News allies are in cahoots not only to push haggard Hillary into the White House but to bamboozle the American people into believing their phony propaganda.  We shall see who wins in November.
  57. 2017 Friday: German supermarket Aldi pulls all shell eggs from the Netherlands from its shelves after the discovery of the chemical- fipronil- is found in them. Pest control companies use fipronil to kill insects so WTF?  Elsewhere, in a federal court in Brooklyn, New York, former boy wonder pharmaceutical CEO Martin Shkreli- a loser who jacked up the price of a generic drug to the point no one could afford it- undergoes conviction on three counts of securities fraud.
  58. 2018 Saturday: In what many believe to be a setup, Venezuelan thug President Nicolas Maduro survives an assassination attempt, carried out by a drone while the communist POS was at a military review. The event was captured on live TV.  Even better, the former bus-driving thug Maduro blames the assassination attempt on Venezuelan exiles hiding in neighboring Colombia and on their handlers as well as the Venezuelan ‘mafia’ supposedly living in Florida.  Dude, STFU.
  59. 2019 Sunday: The Central Bank of China devalues its currency below the normal 7-1 ratio with the U.S. dollar for the first time in more than a decade, due in part to the trade tariffs President Donald J. Trump is using to force the communists to the bargaining table and trade talks. Meanwhile, in what many believe to be a terrorist attack conducted by ISIS, a car bomb explodes in Cairo, Egypt, killing 20 and injuring another 47 people.   Elsewhere, Connor Bettis- a POS with a gun- hits the bar district in Dayton, Ohio, and kills 9 people and wounds another 27 before law enforcement arrives on scene and shoots the punk dead.
  60. 2020 Tuesday: In Beirut, Lebanon, a tremendous blast felt as far as Cyprus, rips part of the port apart, killing between 75-100 people and injuring another 2,700-3,500. Speculation abounds with the Lebanese claiming it was a storage site for firecrackers (yeah, right) but we suspect the site was warehousing Iranian munitions bound for Hamas to use against Israel so either the Mossad took care of the problem or the mullah-loving Iranians and their Hamas allies are too flipping stupid to be around large caches of explosives.  Self-detonation (or so we suspect- morons!). 
  61. 2020 Tuesday A: Here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 18,380,616 confirmed cases, UP by 241,178 cases, 691,740 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,167 deaths, and 10,973,850 confirmed recoveries, UP by 220,035 recoveries. Here are the numbers for the United States: 4,834,460 confirmed cases, UP by 56,909 new cases, 158,728 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,208 new deaths, and 2,357,033 confirmed recoveries, UP by 38,264 new recoveries. We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.
  62. 2020 Tuesday B: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 519,427 confirmed cases, 9,501 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 2,448 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,315 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 58,715 confirmed cases, 1,600 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 417,589 confirmed number of cases, 35,719 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.  Wake up, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo!  Give us the honest numbers you fetid piece of sewer scum, especially of the senior citizens you have killed.  Shame on you.
  63. 2020 Tuesday C: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 26,828.47, UP 164.07 points (+0.62%). Next, the NASDAQ: 10,841.17, UP 38.37 points (+0.35%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,306.51, UP 11.90 points (+0.36%).  The price of GOLD is $2,040.70 per troy oz., +19.00 (+0.94%) while the price of SILVER is $26.22 per troy ounce, +0.187 (+0.72%).  The price of PLATINUM is $958.50 per troy oz, +3.30 (+0.35%) while the price of COPPER is $2.90 per pound, +0.0085 (+0.29%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.55 per barrel, -0.15 (-0.36%).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.97 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.85 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency.
  64. 2020 Tuesday D: Dr. Oxiris Barbot, New York City health commissioner, sent a letter to moron Mayor Bill Di Blasio, calling it quits over the tremendous mishandling of the COVID-19 Chinese Virus. We must remember that Mayor Di Blasio and Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo colluded together to send patients infected with the Wuhan Flu into rest homes where vulnerable people died sans the presence of any loved ones present.  We can smell massive lawsuits against Di Blasio and Cuomo brewing on the horizon, like the police officers they wish to destroy, they should enjoy NO qualified immunity for their criminal mistakes.  Elsewhere, General Charles Brown took the oath of office in the White House which made him the new chief of staff of the U.S. Air Force, the first black American to hold the post.  Congratulations! 
  65. 2020 Tuesday E: One teachers union after another around the country are making demands before they will return that range from soaking the wealthy, adopting the Green New Deal, abolishing the police, equipping every home with a computer and Internet access, and loads of other stupidity. Friendly state education authorities are trying to shut down private schools, charter schools, you name it, they are doing whatever they can to close it.  President Trump: do what President Ronald Reagan did with the striking air traffic controllers- FIRE THEM and REPLACE THEM.  On August 05, 1981, he fired 11,359 of the scumbags.  Other Americans will take these jobs.
  66. 2021 Wednesday:  Friends, stick around to discover whatever the heck is going on around the world today…what have the Chi-Coms instructed drooling Joe Biden to do today?

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by Jethro Tull hit record store shelves on September 22, 2009: “Live at Madison Square Garden 1978.”  This 1 DVD/1 CD album was LIVE in concert and it featured mostly tunes from “Songs from the Wood” and “Heavy Horses” plus some much-beloved favorites.  The band featured Ian Anderson (vocals, flutes, guitars, keyboards), Martin Barre (guitars), John Glascock (bass), John Evan (keyboards), Barriemore Barlow (drums), and Dee Palmer (keyboards and synthesizers).  We tend to favor the early four albums over the more modern efforts but still, this is a good way to see the band in a whole different light.  We hope you will seek it out and consider making it a part of your listening day.  Enjoy.

  59. 2020 Wednesday: Although most major news outlets, Democrats, and anti-Trump RINOs have called the election for “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his sidekick, “Kooky Kamala” Harris, Las Vegas bookmakers have not.  Meanwhile, votes for President Donald J. Trump continue turning up in various battleground states but in Michigan, a setback occurred when county election workers first refused to certify the elections in the Detroit area until they came under verbal assault and threatened physical assault.  They quickly certified the results and sent them up the ladder to the Michigan secretary of state.  Wow.  Elsewhere, the House GOP leaders vote to retain the same officers in the lower chamber of Congress while initial reports say the Dems might keep current House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi in her position.  How this can be true after they lost beaucoup seats after being promised of the MASSIVE VICTORIES to come is beyond us.  However, what is also beyond us is the fact that the GOP knocked out one Democrat House incumbent after another and we are still to believe that President Donald J. Trump lost his re-election bid?  Say what?
  60. 2020 Wednesday A: The Department of Justice charges seven people for committing fraud on the U.S. government by scamming the Paycheck Protection Program out of $16 million.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump fires Christopher Krebs, a Trump appointee to head the elections security division at the Department of Homeland Security after he proclaimed, ‘NO election shenanigans have occurred in the 2020 Presidential Election.’  Elsewhere, CNN’s famed foreign correspondent, the highly biased Christine Amanpour expressed regret for having used the name of “President Donald J. Trump and his followers” in connection with Kristallnacht.”  That’s nice, Ms. Amanpour, you anti-Semitic bigot.   Finally, we learn that the Durham Probe into the Democrats, the Russians, the Chi-Coms, and the Obama administration continues.  IF Trump should lose, so what?  Speaking of President Donald J. Trump, he is doing his best to withdraw 25,000 American troops from the Middle East before the year’s end.
  61. 2020 Wednesday B: Pfizer- not to be outdone by Moderna- says their COVID-19 vaccine is 95-percent or more effective.  However, given billions of dollars by the U.S. government to develop the vaccine in record time to provide 100 million doses of the vaccine by year’s end has now reneged and says it will only provide 20 million doses while sending the other 80 million doses abroad.  Good Lord!  WTF is wrong with American companies?  Oh, wait, Pfizer donated BIG BUCKS to the campaign of “Pro-China Joe” Biden and “Kooky Kamala” Harris.  Go figure.
  62. 2020 Wednesday C: Back to the Chi-Coms and their Wuhan Virus pandemic, here are the latest stats: 56,024,130 confirmed cases, UP by 690,756 cases, 1,345,639 confirmed deaths, UP by 13,249 deaths, and 35,969,240 confirmed recoveries, UP by 356,120 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 11,546,233 confirmed cases, UP by 177,590 new cases, 253,423 confirmed deaths, UP by 2,100 new deaths, and 6,095,958 confirmed recoveries, UP by 58,978 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt POSs).  Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 326,200 confirmed cases, 2,738 confirmed deaths, and 315,314 confirmed recoveries. 
  63. 2020 Wednesday D: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 1,058,125 confirmed cases, 18,364 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 16,755 confirmed cases, 222 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION OF confirmed recoveries anymore- what is up with YOU, Gov. Ige, you Democrat hack.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 140,942 confirmed cases, 2,686 confirmed deaths, but like California, the palooka-faced governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, Virginia, the home of Democratic corruption, elected officials who dress in blackface or who have committed sexual assaults: 208,833 confirmed number of cases, 3,860 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed number of recoveries- thank you, Governor Ralph “KKK” Northam for concealing the number of recoveries- yet another left-wing liberal POS politician.
  64. 2020 Wednesday E: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 29,438.42, DOWN 344.93 points (-1.16%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,801.60, DOWN 97.74 points (-0.82%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,567.79, DOWN 41.74 points (-1.16%).  The price of GOLD is $1,871.00 per troy oz., -2.90 (-0.15%) while the price of SILVER is $24.40 per troy ounce, -0.53 (-0.22%).  The price of PLATINUM is $948.10 per troy oz, -2.80 (-0.29%) while the price of COPPER is $3.20 per pound, -0.002 (-0.06%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,354.00 per troy oz, +27.50 (+1.18%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.62 per barrel, -0.20 (-0.48%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.56 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.30.
  65. 2020 Wednesday F: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Super Lotto #3509 with a jackpot of $7 million at stake: 01, 02, 16, 27, 32, and Mega 18.  One person had FIVE numbers but no Mega for a prize of $27,123.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #795 with a jackpot of $179 million: 04, 05, 17, 43, 52, and Powerball 05.  The highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $36,296. 
  66. 2020 Wednesday G: Running unopposed for another term as speaker of the House, Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi wins to the shock of many.  It demonstrates how chicken-s**t the Democrats in the House are that they are afraid of challenging the 80-year-old, mostly senile, incoherent speaker seeing as how she has produced the slimmest ‘majority’ in the history of the U.S. House of Representatives losing 12 incumbent seats and gaining NONE.  Democrats, boot her out NOW!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

After floundering about for a while, Lou Gramm discovered- like Mick Jones- that catching lightning twice can be a challenging thing.  Both of them needed one another but after wasting a good amount of time on solo projects and reincarnations of Foreigner, they reunited and released “Mr. Moonlight” on October 31, 1994.  Joining them were Bruce Turgon (bass/backing vocals), Jeff Jacobs (keyboards/backing vocals), Mark Schulman (drums/backing vocals), and a load of other musicians to round out the sound.  Sadly, lightning did not hit them twice and on the charts, this one came in at #136, not enough to bring in much money to keep the band living in the style they once were used to living.  Still, like anything else, it has its moments and one can discern flashes of the OLD GREATNESS so we encourage everyone to investigate for themselves.  You will be glad you did.

TODAY IN HISTORY, WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 18, 2020

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

Wednesday, November 18, 2020:

FOOTNOTES:


[i] We promoted the music of Blue Cheer- one of the wildest acid rock bands of all time, beginning on Sunday, 25-November-2012 through Wednesday, 12-December-2012.  We hope you seek this famed band out and add them to your collection; you will be glad you did.

[ii] We began promoting the music of this famed psychedelic band- Strawberry Alarm Clock- beginning on Tuesday, 03-April-2012 through Saturday, 08-April-2012. Please check them out- you will enjoy them.

[iii] We began promoting the music of Santana on Tuesday, 28-August-2012 through Tuesday, 23-October-2012.  We hope you will seek the music of this famed man and his band out wherever you can find them.

[iv] We hope to promote the music of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, as well as of each member’s solo careers along with Crazy Horse within the next 5-7 years.  Please remain vigilant for when we do.

[v] It does not require a genius to understand that every Republican president since Ronald Reagan has been the target of outraged Democrats who seek to overthrow the legal system and impeach every GOP president.  Time for this bulls**t to end.

[vi] These illegal protests in Hong Kong continue into 2019 and it is clear that they are out of control and need to be shut down.  Hong Kong is Chinese territory and it should be clear to all that they have been quite patient in their response while awaiting the perpetrators to meet them halfway.

[vii] We are not sure when AC/DC will be in the works but you bet they will be at some point, possibly in 2027-2028.

[viii] That’s right- we said it: the Chi-Coms provide many of the engineers involved in the project as well as lesser workers.  This is a criminal scam and everyone knows it. 

[ix] Mayor Pete is doing great with the Bath House vote but cannot attract black voters to his cause (and why would they join him?- editor’s note 2019).  We lovingly refer to Mayor Pete as “Little Queenie.”

[x] Chris Matthews claims it was the sound of a coffee mug being scraped across the desk.  You be the judge: <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aKLn-qjlM_Y >
