  42. 2002 Monday: The United States closed its consulate in Karachi, Pakistan.  The American government did this after Pakistani authorities removed large concrete blocks from in front of the building and allowed the resumption of normal traffic on the road directly in front of the facility.  In doing this, the Pakistanis attempted to make a point that in case of terrorist attack, the U.S. was on its own.  Screw these bastards.  Elsewhere, the coral-encrusted gun turret of the Civil War ironclad USS Monitor was raised from the floor of the Atlantic, nearly 140 years after the historic warship sank during a tremendous storm.
  43. 2008 Tuesday: The state of Texas executed Jose Medellin, a Mexican-born condemned killer, via lethal injection for his part in the gang rape and murder of two teenage girls, Elizabeth Pena, and Jennifer Ertman, in 1993.  Liberals claim that illegal aliens do not commit crime, yet this POS murdered two American girls after participating in a heinous gang rape with some of his banger buddies.  #Buildthewallanddeportthemall!

  46. 2013 Monday: Amazon.com CEO Jeff Bezos purchases “The Washington Post,” a privately-owned newspaper, which the ultra-leftist liberal socialist transforms into his personal mouthpiece for attacking his enemies.  In our view, NO billionaire entrepreneur should ever be able to purchase a media outlet to then use as his personal attack dog on his enemies.   Meanwhile, Samantha Power becomes the 28th U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.
  47. 2014 Tuesday:  Over 1.2 billion security credentials have been stolen in a Russian-led hacking ring; data was stolen from over 420,000 websites, but the websites and victim names have not yet been disclosed.  Meanwhile, Russia counters sanctions by the U.S. and the European Union by banning all imports of dairy, fish, meat, fruit, and vegetables; Russia prohibited Ukrainian flights from its air space, as well.   Finally, in a move that shocked many, President Barack Hussein Obama signed the Iron Dome Bill providing $225 million so the Israelis could build their iron dome to deflect missiles coming from all directions.

  51. 2018 Sunday: On the island of Lombok in Indonesia, a 6.9-magnitude earthquake slams the region killing at least 460 and displacing another 350,000 people.  
  52. 2019 Monday: New Delhi, India, announces that due to security concerns with neighboring Pakistan, it’s going to revoke Article 370 that will strip Indian-controlled Kashmir’s status as a state and making it a union territory.  The Islamists in Pakistan have been trying to subvert Kashmir for many years with the Indians having to kick their butts from time-to-time in order to maintain law and order.  Meanwhile, due to increasing anti-government and anti-Beijing protests in Hong Kong, the local government does what it can to clamp down on the protests and cancels at least 200 flights in and out of the former British territory.   Elsewhere, Toni Morrison, first African American woman to win a Nobel Prize (2010) dies at age 88.  Finally, the European Union’s Copernicus Program- an Earth-observation satellite confirms (drum roll please!) that July 2019 was the hottest month on record.  Hmmm…
  53. 2020 Wednesday: Lebanese authorities inform the world that the BLAST that devastated their main port in Beirut occurred because of tons of ammonium nitrate stored on site for more than six years.  Ammonium nitrate is, of course, one of the main components of explosives so for now, it appears NOT to have been a ‘terrorist event’ although we sure as hell believe that it was.  At least 150 people died, more than 3,500 injured, scores of others are missing, and the nation is in turmoil.  The government put several of the port authorities for now under house arrest.  Folks, it was a terrorist mishap or a Mossad strike before Iranians could launch massive terrorist attacks against Israel.  This is what the AICPENDBLOG.COM believes.  We shall see.  Meanwhile, Democratic presidential nominee asks a black reporter when quizzed about doing ‘mental tests’ if he was tested for cocaine prior to going on the Yahoo news program.  Uh, okay, Joe, why you have to racialize everything?

  58. 2021 Thursday: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- 201,638,934 confirmed cases, +698,877, 4,279,345 confirmed deaths, +10,269 and 181,417,142 confirmed recoveries, +465,517.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 36,298,087 confirmed cases, UP 117,288 from yesterday’s reporting, 631,860 confirmed deaths, UP 604, [vi] and 29,814,788 confirmed recoveries, UP 27,472.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [vii]

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 313,418 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 90,660 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  60. 2021 Thursday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 4,017,658 confirmed cases, 64,693 confirmed deaths, and 2,114,004 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,724,131 confirmed cases, 39,403 confirmed deaths, and 2,300,097 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 44,617 confirmed cases, 538 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 488,401 confirmed cases, 6,201 confirmed deaths, and 231,493 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Colorado: they have 580,610 confirmed cases, 7,240 confirmed deaths, and 514,184 confirmed recoveries.

  63. 2021 Thursday 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, $3.029 in Florida, $4.096 in Hawaii, and $3.867 in Washington state. [xv]    Let’s look at one other location- Michigan: $3.308.  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- Bulgaria: $4.951 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,606,945,078,215 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 Australia, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is All Others with $215 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.
  64. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Here’s the ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris’ daily ticker: Border czar for 135 days and 41 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: $525,088,928.  Next, (2) here is the cost for caring for all these illegal aliens this year: $237,236,409,184.  Next, (3) Here is the estimate of the numbers of illegals who have poured across the U.S.-Mexico border just this year: 2,431,494.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate of illegal aliens roaming the U.S.: 36,431,492.  (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…
  65. 2021 Thursday G: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– a new day, new crap: Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci is at it again- he says, ‘the U.S. is likely to face new COVID-19 variants (now, we’re talking about the Lambda variant, they mentioned it last Monday and then dropped it like a hot potato as it was too soon) unless community spread doesn’t come under control.’  Meanwhile, there is increased talk about Chi-Vi vaccine passports for increased workers and for one to go about normal life.  Some say it’s the “U.S. version of the Chi-Coms’ social media scores.”  Speaking of which, the U.S. Department of Defense says it’s going to mandate Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines for ALL active-duty personnel.  No flipping wonder that we have forty new ‘COVID-19 billionaires.’  Moderna (or maybe Pfizer) is recommending a THIRD SHOT to the two-shot regimen meaning we will have another 40 new COVID-19 billionaires by the end of the year bringing the number to between 80-100.  Question: how many members of Congress will become ‘COVID-19 billionaires?  Just saying).
  66. 2021 Thursday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Florida has now seen a major spike in pediatric COVID-19 cases just as school is going to start.  How convenient.  We believe it’s because all of the illegal aliens that are being redistributed across the United States but especially into RED locations.   Having mentioned the Lambda variant of COVID-19 in the previous posting, it would appear that the reason for its ‘return’ is that the Bidenistas have gotten as much mileage out of the Delta variant as they possibly can.  In other Chi-Com virus news, Rep. Michael McCaul, R-TX, 10th CD, told Newsmax that ‘COVID-19 was a sinister genetic manipulation by the communist Chinese.’  Elsewhere, CNN reports that ‘U.S. intel possesses genetic data with which to study the origins of the Wuhan Bat Flu.’  Excellent.
  67. 2021 Thursday I: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden- thinking he’s really hanging in with the in-crowd (like he did when he played that Latin music soundbite before a crowd of Latinos) trolled “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis, R-FL, in their ongoing war of words over COVID-19 said, “Governor Who?”  Look, Joe, you need to be careful because all Governor DeSantis had to do was to say that ‘at least, I won MY election unlike YOU whole stole yours.’  Of course, Joe being the feeble old fool that he is does not think past step one.   
  68. 2021 Thursday J: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden regime has approved a $750 million arms sale to Taiwan.  (Note: one year later, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi would just be concluding an overseas ‘visit’ to Taiwan that has the Chi-Coms all stirred up and preparing to go to war.  What the hell?)  
  69. 2021 Thursday K: Political News I– Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th CD, is going to visit the Iowa State Fair.  Meanwhile, Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, is pushing his “Love America Act” that will toss ‘Criminal (Critical) Race Theory’ onto the scrap heap of history by teaching America’s true history, its founding documents, and love for country instead of his left-wing crap the liberals are pushing.   Next, a new GOP-led House bill looks to restore America’s national forests and end overregulation of forest seeks management. 
  70. 2021 Thursday L: Political News II– To much Democrat horror, the state of Wisconsin has canceled 250,000 inactive or fraudulent voter registrations because election officials cannot find them- and Democrats are opposed to this.   Meanwhile, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, heard testimonies today on malicious Chi-Com influence across the United States.  Time to drive the Chi-Coms out of the country and back into their rat holes.   Next, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, told Newsmax that massive government spending is ‘bait and switch’ leading to higher inflation. 
  71. 2021 Thursday M: Political News III– Today, we learned that ‘Mr. Save-the-Planet,’ aka the ‘Climate Czar’ John F. Kerry and his family have embarked on sixteen private jet forays.  What about saving the planet, Mr. Climate Czar?  Oh, that’s right, you aren’t one of the ‘little people.’  Elsewhere, Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch says the recent spate of emails about the murder of Ashli Babbitt only raises more questions about WHY the concealed cop shot and killed her and WHO exactly he was.   Speaking of her death, as the FBI continues arresting more patriotic Americans for their participation in the January 6, 2021, protests, the ones the left have labeled as worse than Pearl Harbor, the War of 1812, and September 11, 2001, combined together, violent crime rates continue going up around the country.  WTF?
  72. 2021 Thursday N: Political News IV– As the Biden regime continues crushing everything in its path, ultrawealthy Americans are moving abroad and renouncing their U.S. citizenship.  Who can blame them?  We might be seeking asylum in Hungary soon.  Meanwhile, civil rights ‘leaders’ announce they are going to lead voting rights marches beginning on August 28.  Oh, whoopie.  Moving on, the Democrats are pushing for a vote on their ‘elections reform bill’ before they leave Washington, D.C., on August recess.   In other Democrat news, Act Blue the Democrat-funding site has dumped New York reprobate Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo’s funding page.  Sucks to be you, Andrew.  Finally, U.S. Senate candidate from Missouri, Mark McCloskey, says that Rep. Cori “The Bitch” Bush, DS-MO 1st CD, wants to turn St. Louis into a ‘criminals’ paradise.’
  73. 2021 Thursday O: Miscellaneous News I– Microsoft cofounder Bill Gates said he made ‘a mistake’ hanging with Jeffrey Epstein.  Elsewhere, 80-year-old Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts won’t be joining them on their upcoming U.S. tour after having had to undergo a medical procedure. 
  74. 2021 Thursday P: Business News– Property Owners and real estate companies are joining forces to fight back against the oppressive, Chi-Com-style takeover of rental properties via the bogus ‘evictions moratorium’ imposed by of all things, the Centers for Disease Control.  Even the courts have declared this to be crap and yet the Democrats act as though the people have no choice in the matter.  We are frigging Americans; we will not bow down to tyrants.
  75. 2021 Thursday Q: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– AFL-CIO leader Richard Trumka died at age 72.  Had this overweight leftist thug come to agreement with the ‘jobs president,’ President Donald J. Trump, it’s possible America would see full employment and all illegal aliens would be deported back to whence they came.  He could not leave his Democrat cronies behind and thus he sold his country out.
  76. 2021 Thursday R: Sports News I– President Donald J. Trump rips the U.S. women’s soccer team by saying ‘if you’re woke, you lose.’  Carl Lewis, Olympic great, ripped the men’s relay team as an ‘embarrassment.’
  77. 2021 Thursday S: We continue learning more about how U.S. banks many of whom have deep ties to the Chi-Coms are buying up entire housing tracts, neighborhoods, and other commercial properties and are going to transform them into rentals because rents are going up by 5.3-percent and are expected to go higher.  We first warned about the Chi-Coms becoming Americans’ de facto landlords through buying up as much U.S. property as possible via straw purchasers, i.e., the BIG BANKS, so they can rule our country via controlling everything average Americans need.  This is WAR.  Plain and simple, the time is NOW to nuke them and put Donald J. Trump back into the White House.
  78. 2022 Friday: This past Tuesday, numerous politicians who went against President Trump found themselves on the chopping block.  As long as the Democrats could squeeze propaganda points out of them, they were A-Okay whereas once they no longer had any value, out the door they went.  Look at the sackless putz, Rep. Peter Meijer, RINO-MI 3rd CD, he stuck it to Trump, thought he was BIG SHIT, but then, the Dems dump loads of money atop his pro-Trump opponent John Gibbs, believing him to be easier to defeat than their hired hack.  Ah, well, we suspect Gibbs will trounce the Democrat as will loads of other pro-Trump Republicans.  The two RINOs in Washington would have gone down were it not for that state’s crazy election system.  (Note- many of us plan to register as Democrats so as to inflate their numbers and then vote against them- from the inside.  Going to be great).

42. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 2022

64. 2021 Thursday A: Impeach #45 II continues in the U.S. Senate. It appears that Democrats prosecuting the FORMER president believe that if they continue hammering the same points over and over and over and over that somehow, it is going to drive an increasing number of inattentive GOP senators to vote to convict. Not so.

It appears that Democrats prosecuting the FORMER president believe that if they continue hammering the same points over and over and over and over that somehow, it is going to drive an increasing number of inattentive GOP senators to vote to convict.  Not so.  Chef Lilah said in her Twitter feed today that Congressman Jamie Raskin’s own daddy avoided doing a stretch in federal prison over his collusion with Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers back in the 1970s.  She guesses what was good for daddy is not good for President Donald J. Trump.  Meanwhile, Trump adviser Jason Miller shares his confidence that Trump’s attorneys can dismantle the Democrats’ BS arguments with ease.   In the same vein, Senator Lindsey Graham says he believes more GOP senators are going to vote to acquit after hearing the sobbing testimony of Democrat prosecutors such as mob boss David Cicilline, the blubbering Jamie Raskin, and that POS of fecal matter, Teddy Lieu.  Add to that the Chi-Com spy Eric Swalwell and one can see the rogue’s gallery of dimwits on display.  Doesn’t say much about the people who elect these bedbugs to office now does it.
  65. 2021 Thursday B: In Portland, Oregon, local cops say they were successful in driving away the left-wing Antifa and BLM mobs from burning down their very own police union headquarters. Elsewhere, Fox News Channel files suit to dismiss the bogus lawsuit launched against the network by the election-stealing software company (allegedly) Smartmatic.  We expect it to be successful and that Smartmatic will lose.  Meanwhile, Telegram becomes the most popular downloaded social media app.  Next, a $4.5 million lawsuit has just dropped on the head of Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey.  Owners of the Town Talk Diner and Gastro Pub in Minneapolis filed suit after mobs attacked their business night after night and burned it down during the summertime riots in which, Black Lives Matter and Antifa thugs targeted their business and NO Minneapolis Police Department officers ever showed up to protect it.  We expect loads more lawsuits are going to drop atop these left-wing mayors and governors.  Finally, the New York Stock Exchange announces that if Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo’s tax plan goes into effect, they will be leaving the Empire State.  Good for you!
  66. 2021 Thursday C: It appears that Cancel Culture is trying to erase Western Tradition so that it can supplant it with Marxism. We won’t allow that to happen.  Elsewhere, a recent study into the reporting of statistics related the Chinese Virus are entirely wrong.  The study suggests that the fatality numbers connected to the Beijing Bug include BOTH those who died FROM the virus and those who died WITH the virus.  If statistics were honest, the numbers would fall from the nearly 2,400,000 deaths to a true figure of 35,000 deaths.  However, since the virus serves left-wing political purposes, the numbers are inflated and remain inflated.    Meanwhile, federal health authorities are warning medical workers to be on the lookout for ersatz N-95 masks.  Finally, Tokyo Olympics boss Yoshiro Mori finds himself forced to resign over a comment he made in which, he said, ‘women talk too much.’  Gee, no one can exercise an opinion anymore.  Wah, wah, wah!
  67. 2021 Thursday D: Tom Fitton shares information numerous Chi-Com-loving professors in the United States are receiving funding for various research projects and then transferring both the research and American tax dollars back to the communists in Beijing. Under the Trump administration, many of these Chi-Com sleepers were rooted and booted whereas now, under the ‘Joe Biden administration,’ Chi-Coms ain’t going nowhere.  Speaking of this, a mumbling Joe Biden now admits that yes indeed, the Chinese ARE going to eat our lunches.’  Add to that the fact that since the teachers unions have bullied Chi-Com Joe, the Biden administration is now going to rely on whatever the CDC says about whether schools can reopen or not.  NOT GOOD, Joe, people are becoming angrier by the moment.  Elsewhere, illegal alien border crossings into the U.S. are more than double one year ago.  We keep saying, “Lay in minefields!” 
  68. 2021 Thursday H: Here are today’s stats for the Wuhan Flu, planet first: 107,458,667 confirmed cases, +291,882, 2,357,475, confirmed deaths, +9,054, and 60,136,468 confirmed recoveries, +228,082. Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 27,539,217 confirmed cases, up 53,415 from yesterday’s reporting, 473,223 confirmed deaths, DOWN 811 from yesterday’s reporting, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP- UNKNOWN- same number as last week’s.  NOTE- in the White House 22 DAYS, apparently the U.S. will NO longer report the number of recoveries.  Shame on you, Chi-Com Joe.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 143,828 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, you said you had a plan- where the f**k is it?
  69. 2021 Thursday I: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,449,934 confirmed cases, 45,456 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,584 confirmed cases, 423 confirmed deaths (not updated in a week), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 328,264 confirmed cases, 4,675 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. real estate- Tennessee: currently, they have 752,033 confirmed cases, 10,812 confirmed deaths, and 716,136 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 709,729 confirmed cases, 5,257 confirmed deaths, and 635,960 confirmed recoveries.    For the heck of it, let’s look at another country- Italy: currently, they have 2,668,266 confirmed cases of the dreaded Chi-Vi, 92,338 confirmed deaths, and 2,165,817 confirmed recoveries.   The AP reports that Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo sent at least 9,000 COVID-19-infected patients into New York nursing homes.  For this lowlife scumbag to do this, he did it for ONE THING and ONE THING ONLY: to eliminate the aged, the infirm, the chronically ill, and the mentally challenged.  Governor Cuomo must be put on trial for mass murder.  Either that or he’s too stupid to be governor, perhaps his lower IQ brother Chris could do the job?
  70. 2021 Thursday J: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,430.70, DOWN 7.10 points (-0.023%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,025.77, UP 53.24 points (+0.38%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,916.38, UP 6.50 points (+0.17%).  The price of GOLD is $1,826.70 per troy oz., -0.10 (-0.07%) while the price of SILVER is $27.05 per troy ounce, -0.00 (-0.01%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,243.00 per troy oz, -4.00 (-0.32%) while the price of COPPER is $3.78 per pound, +0.01 (+0.23%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,353.50 per troy oz, +0.00 (+0.00%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $57.95 per barrel, -0.29 (-0.50%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.45 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.95.  Next, $1.00 U.S. = 0.000021 Bitcoin (BTC).  One buck U.S. = 1,400.00 Myanmar Kyat.
  71. 2021 Thursday K: After the Biden administration suggested something that extremely sounds Stalinist, namely prohibiting travel to Florida because Governor Ron DeSantis, Republican, won’t kotow to the new oppressive administration. Governor DeSantis says it’s a load of crap seeing as how the Biden administration could give a hoot about hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens flooding the country whom NO one is monitoring for the Chinese Virus. Florida has remained open from the earliest days of the Wuhan Flu and its cases are not as bad as say, California and New York.  Still, Bill Gates and Dr. Tony “Three Masks and Googles” Fauci are conspiring to find ways to topple DeSantis at best or to force him in line at worst.   Look for other Stalinist measures to follow suit.  Meanwhile, Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene introduces a bill with which to prohibit federal funds being used for gun control measures.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Richard Thompson released his next studio album on June 23, 2015, the critically acclaimed “Still.”  Once a guitar warrior, always a guitar warrior, Thompson knows how to crank ‘em out and this one is as good as it gets.  There is a ‘slim version’ and a ‘deluxe version,’ which is why we encourage everyone to get the deluxe as who does not enjoy additional tunes, right?  The album featured not only Richard on guitars and vocals but his current band consisting of Taras Prodaniuk (bass and vocals), Michael Jerome (drums and vocals), Jim Elkington (guitars, piano), Jeff Tweedy (numerous instruments, and vocals), and several others- including three backing vocalists- to round out the sound.  Fans love this album just as we do which is why we encourage everyone to visit Amazon.com or whatever other site you do for the absolute best in rock music- you will be glad you did, of that, we are certain.  Enjoy.

[ii] Not sure if we will ever get to the music of Whitney Houston but one day, we sure as heck hope that we do.

[iii] We are not sure as to when we will begin promoting the music of the legendary Dave Clark Five but we hope to do so sometime within the next 4-5 years.

  8. 1884 Tuesday: The cornerstone for the Statue of Liberty’s pedestal was laid on Bedloe’s Island in New York Harbor. Note: some ignorant liberal schmucks such as CNN reporter Jim Acosta believe the statue sets immigration policy for the United States.  Are there no educational requirements for being a White House correspondent?  Obviously not.  The purpose of the statue is to present liberty to the rest of the world, Americans-style but does not mean that just anyone can cross our borders and sink into the background, draining our nation dry.

  26. 1964 Wednesday: U.S. aircraft bombed the crap out of North Vietnam after their gunboats attacked U.S. destroyers in the Gulf of Tonkin. However, U.S. Navy pilot Everett Alvarez Jr. became the first American flier shot down by the North Vietnamese; they held him prisoner until February 1973.
  27. 1966 Friday: During a civil rights march in Chicago, Illinois, the outraged citizens stone Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., and his followers. Meanwhile, in New York City, groundbreaking for the original World Trade Center commences.

The White House released transcripts of subpoenaed tape recordings showing that President Nixon and his chief of staff, H.R.

Meanwhile, Democratic congressional leaders launched a formal investigation to find out if the Ronald Reagan-George H. W. Bush campaign somehow found a way to stall the release of American hostages held by the Iranians until AFTER the 1980 Presidential Election.  What a load of bullshit but this is how the Democrats conduct business in the modern era. 
  36. 1992 Wednesday: The four cops involved in the beating of Los Angeles motorist, Rodney King, find themselves indicted on the charge that they violated the man’s civil rights. Meanwhile, famed session drummer Jeff Porcaro, who played with Steely Dan[iv] and Toto[v] among others died from a mishap at his home in West Hills, California, when he overused insecticide and caused himself to die along with the bugs; he was only 38.
  37. 1996 Monday: The Dallas Cowboys play the Kansas City Chiefs in Monterey, Mexico.
  38. 1997 Tuesday: Ramzi Yousef goes on trial in New York City on charges that he masterminded the World Trade Center bombing.
  39. 2002 Monday: The United States closed its consulate in Karachi, Pakistan. The American government did this after Pakistani authorities removed large concrete blocks from in front of the building and allowed the resumption of normal traffic on the road directly in front of the facility.  In doing this, the Pakistanis attempted to make a point that in case of terrorist attack, the U.S. was on its own.  Screw these bastards.  Elsewhere, the coral-encrusted gun turret of the Civil War ironclad USS Monitor was raised from the floor of the Atlantic, nearly 140 years after the historic warship sank during a tremendous storm.
  40. 2008 Tuesday: The state of Texas executed Jose Medellin, a Mexican-born condemned killer, via lethal injection for his part in the gang rape and murder of two teenage girls, Elizabeth Pena, and Jennifer Ertman, in 1993. Liberals claim that illegal aliens do not commit crime, yet this POS murdered two American girls after participating in a heinous gang rape with some of his banger buddies.  #Buildthewallanddeportthemall!
  41. 2010 Thursday: Somali pirates seize a Syrian freighter with 24 crewmembers in the Gulf of Aden.
  42. 2011 Friday: NASA announced that its Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter had captured photographic evidence of possible liquid water on Mars during warm seasons. Elsewhere, Standard & Poor’s Financial Services lowered the United States’ AAA credit rating by one notch to AA-plus.
  43. 2013 Monday: Amazon.com CEO Jeff Bezos purchases “The Washington Post,” a privately-owned newspaper, which the ultra-leftist liberal socialist transforms into his personal mouthpiece for attacking his enemies. In our view, NO billionaire entrepreneur should ever be able to purchase a media outlet to then use as his personal attack dog on his enemies.   Meanwhile, Samantha Power becomes the 28thS. ambassador to the United Nations.
  44. 2014 Tuesday: Over 1.2 billion security credentials have been stolen in a Russian-led hacking ring; data was stolen from over 420,000 websites, but the websites and victim names have not yet been disclosed.  Meanwhile, Russia counters sanctions by the S. and the European Union by banning all imports of dairy, fish, meat, fruit, and vegetables; Russia prohibited Ukrainian flights from its air space, as well.   Finally, in a move that shocked many, President Barack Hussein Obama signed the Iron Dome Bill providing $225 million so the Israelis could build their iron dome to deflect missiles coming from all directions.
  45. 2015 Wednesday: While investigating a Superfund site, the Environmental Protection Agency causes a major environmental disaster by releasing MILLIONS of gallons of heavy metal-tainted water into Colorado’s Animas River causing untold billions of dollars of damage.
  46. 2016 Friday: In Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, the XXXI Summer Olympics Games opens at the Maracanã Stadium. These are the first Olympic games held south of the Equator. 
  47. 2017 Saturday: The U.N. Security Council votes to impose additional sanctions on Kim Jong Un and North Korea for the communist thug continuing to fire off missiles and for making threats. We need to nuke HIM.
  48. 2018 Sunday: On the island of Lombok in Indonesia, a 6.9-magnitude earthquake slams the region killing at least 460 and displacing another 350,000 people.
  49. 2019 Monday: New Delhi, India, announces that due to security concerns with neighboring Pakistan, it’s going to revoke Article 370 that will strip Indian-controlled Kashmir’s status as a state and making it a union territory. The Islamists in Pakistan have been trying to subvert Kashmir for many years with the Indians having to kick their butts from time-to-time in order to maintain law and order.  Meanwhile, due to increasing anti-government and anti-Beijing protests in Hong Kong, the local government does what it can to clamp down on the protests and cancels at least 200 flights in and out of the former British territory.   Elsewhere, Toni Morrison, first African American woman to win a Nobel Prize (2010) dies at age 88.  Finally, the European Union’s Copernicus Program- an Earth-observation satellite confirms (drum roll please!) that July 2019 was the hottest month on record.  Hmmm…
  50. 2020 Wednesday: Lebanese authorities inform the world that the BLAST that devastated their main port in Beirut occurred because of tons of ammonium nitrate stored on site for more than six years. Ammonium nitrate is, of course, one of the main components of explosives so for now, it appears NOT to have been a ‘terrorist event’ although we sure as hell believe that it was.  At least 150 people died, more than 3,500 injured, scores of others are missing, and the nation is in turmoil.  The government put several of the port authorities for now under house arrest.  Folks, it was a terrorist mishap or a Mossad strike before Iranians could launch massive terrorist attacks against Israel.  This is what the AICPENDBLOG.COM believes.  We shall see.  Meanwhile, Democratic presidential nominee asks a black reporter when quizzed about doing ‘mental tests’ if he was tested for cocaine prior to going on the Yahoo news program.  Uh, okay, Joe, why you have to racialize everything?
  51. 2020 Wednesday A: Here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 18,635,877 confirmed cases, UP by 190,090 cases, 702,903 confirmed deaths, UP by 11,163 deaths, and 11,206,326 confirmed recoveries, UP by 170,326 recoveries. Here are the numbers for the United States: 4,898,839 confirmed cases, UP by 48,725 new cases, 160,190 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,062 new deaths, and 2,411,277 confirmed recoveries, UP by 44,556 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 MF-ers).
  52. 2020 Wednesday 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: 524,722 confirmed cases, 9,703 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 2,591 confirmed cases, 27 confirmed deaths, and 1,354 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 59,379 confirmed cases, 1,619 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, Georgia: 201,713 confirmed number of cases, 3,984 confirmed number of deaths, but no mention of recoveries.  Still, Governor Brian Kemp seems to be doing an excellent job, better that flipping nitwit in New York, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo.  Congrats!
  53. 2020 Wednesday C: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,201.52, UP 373.05 points (1.39%). Next, the NASDAQ: 10,998.40, UP 57.23 points (0.52%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,327.77, UP 21.26 points (0.64%).  The price of GOLD is $2,053.30 per troy oz., +4.00 (+0.20%) while the price of SILVER is $27.12 per troy ounce, +0.225 (+0.84%).  The price of PLATINUM is $995.00 per troy oz, +5.90 (+0.60%) while the price of COPPER is $2.92 per pound, +0.0015 (+0.05%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $42.33 per barrel, +0.14 (+0.33%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.94 Chi-Com yuan.\
  54. 2020 Wednesday D: New York City Mayor Bill Di Blasio orders the establishment of “Checkpoint Charlies” at all major entryways into the crumbling city. He wants armies of contact tracers and public health employees to ensure that all visitors remain under quarantine for two weeks lest they pay massive fines and spend time in the emptied jails.  Meanwhile, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo says he will buy drinks for all the wealthy people who have fled both the city and the state ‘if they’d just come back.’  NO one is going to return, governor, no one.  You reap what you sow, you worthless POS!
  55. 2021 Thursday: We continue learning more about how U.S. banks many of whom have deep ties to the Chi-Coms are buying up entire housing tracts, neighborhoods, and other commercial properties and are going to transform them into rentals because rents are going up by 5.3-percent and are expected to go higher.  We first warned about the Chi-Coms becoming Americans’ de facto landlords through buying up as much U.S. property as possible via straw purchasers, i.e., the BIG BANKS, so they can rule our country via controlling everything average Americans need.  This is WAR.  Plain and simple, the time is NOW to nuke them and put Donald J. Trump back into the White House.  Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Friends, sometimes we get things out of order because some albums are either difficult to find or information regarding them problematic to discover.  Mick Abrahams is truly one of the unsung amazing axmen, a man who can put the strap over his shoulder and crank out the tunes.  Men like Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, Kim Simmonds, Alvin Lee, and Richard Thompson, all eclectic guitarists extraordinaire.  The first album Mick Abrahams released as a solo effort came after the first two Blodwyn Pig albums, “Mick Abrahams” back in 1971.  The version we share with you today is a remastered ‘masterpiece,’ one that will fire up the ears of the listeners to the point they won’t want to stop listening to it for days, possibly weeks.  Joining the guitarist are Walt Monaghan (bass), Ritchie Dharma (drums and percussion), and Bob Sargent (keyboards).  We definitely hope you will seek this album out at your favorite haunt for nothing but the best in rock music, give it a good listen, and consider adding it to your ever-growing collection- you will be glad you did.

  57. 2020 Tuesday: The New Hampshire primary occurs on this date and it appears that the battle is between Princess Pete and Commie Bernie with the Schnoz, Amy Klobuchar hanging in third place although no one knows for sure at this time.  Joe Biden, however, has already bolted for South Carolina, demonstrating he knows he is going to lose here, too.  Meanwhile, an audio tape of Mike Bloomberg speaking from six years ago about busting minorities and sending them to jail for pot possession hits the scene.  My, my, my! Update: with 78% of the vote in, Fox News Channel calls it thus: Sen. Bernie Sanders: 25.7%; Pete Buttigieg: 24.4%; Amy Klobuchar: 19.9%; Elizabeth Warren: 9.4%; Joe Biden: 8.4%; Tom Steyer: 3.6%; Tulsi Gabbard: 3.2%; Andrew Yang: 2.9%; Michael Bennett and Deval Patrick: 0.  Andrew Yang was the first to toss in the towel within moments followed by Michael Bennett within the first 30 minutes;  Tom Steyer tossed in the towel then pulled it back, why?  No one knows…Elsewhere, the death toll from the Chinese Virus in communist China has hit 1,000 fatalities what with 103 in a single day in Hubei Province.  A year later, this will be NOTHING…
  58. 2021 Thursday: DAY 23 OF THE BIDEN REGIME.  Volkswagen is going to team up with Microsoft to create the necessary software with which to create self-driving cars.   Speaking of automobile issues, Texas authorities are cleaning up a massive pileup of cars and trucks on an icy stretch of the highway.  The pileup occurred near Fort Worth, Texas.  Elsewhere, Best Buy announces it’s going to lay off an undisclosed number of its employees in brick-and-mortar stores due to the Chi-Com Virus having driven business more online than in person.  Meanwhile, 793,000 Americans file for initial jobless benefits, down 19,000 from the week before.  Still not good, however.  Finally, thanks to the people behind Joe Biden, gas prices have gone up 18-percent as the War on Domestic Energy Production gets underway.  Thank you, “Chi-Com Joe.”
  59. 2021 Thursday A: Impeach #45 II continues in the U.S. Senate.  It appears that Democrats prosecuting the FORMER president believe that if they continue hammering the same points over and over and over and over that somehow, it is going to drive an increasing number of inattentive GOP senators to vote to convict.  Not so.  Chef Lilah said in her Twitter feed today that Congressman Jamie Raskin’s own daddy avoided doing a stretch in federal prison over his collusion with Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers back in the 1970s.  She guesses what was good for daddy is not good for President Donald J. Trump.  Meanwhile, Trump adviser Jason Miller shares his confidence that Trump’s attorneys can dismantle the Democrats’ BS arguments with ease.   In the same vein, Senator Lindsey Graham says he believes more GOP senators are going to vote to acquit after hearing the sobbing testimony of Democrat prosecutors such as mob boss David Cicilline, the blubbering Jamie Raskin, and that POS of fecal matter, Teddy Lieu.  Add to that the Chi-Com spy Eric Swalwell and one can see the rogue’s gallery of dimwits on display.  Doesn’t say much about the people who elect these bedbugs to office now does it.
  60. 2021 Thursday B: In Portland, Oregon, local cops say they were successful in driving away the left-wing Antifa and BLM mobs from burning down their very own police union headquarters.  Elsewhere, Fox News Channel files suit to dismiss the bogus lawsuit launched against the network by the election-stealing software company (allegedly) Smartmatic.  We expect it to be successful and that Smartmatic will lose.  Meanwhile, Telegram becomes the most popular downloaded social media app.  Next, a $4.5 million lawsuit has just dropped on the head of Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey.  Owners of the Town Talk Diner and Gastro Pub in Minneapolis filed suit after mobs attacked their business night after night and burned it down during the summertime riots in which, Black Lives Matter and Antifa thugs targeted their business and NO Minneapolis Police Department officers ever showed up to protect it.  We expect loads more lawsuits are going to drop atop these left-wing mayors and governors.  Finally, the New York Stock Exchange announces that if Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo’s tax plan goes into effect, they will be leaving the Empire State.  Good for you!
  61. 2021 Thursday C: It appears that Cancel Culture is trying to erase Western Tradition so that it can supplant it with Marxism.  We won’t allow that to happen.  Elsewhere, a recent study into the reporting of statistics related the Chinese Virus are entirely wrong.  The study suggests that the fatality numbers connected to the Beijing Bug include BOTH those who died FROM the virus and those who died WITH the virus.  If statistics were honest, the numbers would fall from the nearly 2,400,000 deaths to a true figure of 35,000 deaths.  However, since the virus serves left-wing political purposes, the numbers are inflated and remain inflated.  Sad.  Meanwhile, federal health authorities are warning medical workers to be on the lookout for ersatz N-95 masks.  Finally, Tokyo Olympics boss Yoshiro Mori finds himself forced to resign over a comment he made in which, he said, ‘women talk too much.’  Gee, no one can exercise an opinion anymore?  Wah, wah, wah!
  62. 2021 Thursday D: Tom Fitton shares information numerous Chi-Com-loving professors in the United States are receiving funding for various research projects and then transferring both the research and American tax dollars back to the communists in Beijing.  Under the Trump administration, many of these Chi-Com sleepers were rooted and booted whereas now, under the ‘Joe Biden administration,’ Chi-Coms ain’t going nowhere.  Speaking of this, a mumbling Joe Biden now admits that yes indeed, the Chinese ARE going to eat our lunches.’  Add to that the fact that since the teachers unions have bullied Chi-Com Joe, the Biden administration is now going to rely on whatever the CDC says about whether schools can reopen or not.  NOT GOOD, Joe, people are becoming angrier by the moment.  Elsewhere, illegal alien border crossings into the U.S. are more than double one year ago.  We keep saying, “Lay in minefields!” 
  63. 2021 Thursday H: Here are today’s stats for the Wuhan Flu, planet first: 107,458,667 confirmed cases, +291,882, 2,357,475, confirmed deaths, +9,054, and 60,136,468 confirmed recoveries, +228,082.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 27,539,217 confirmed cases, up 53,415 from yesterday’s reporting, 473,223 confirmed deaths, DOWN 811 from yesterday’s reporting, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP- UNKNOWN- same number as last week’s.  NOTE- in the White House 22 DAYS, apparently the U.S. will NO longer report the number of recoveries.  Shame on you, Chi-Com Joe.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 143,828 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, you said you had a plan- where the f**k is it?
  64. 2021 Thursday I: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,449,934 confirmed cases, 45,456 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,584 confirmed cases, 423 confirmed deaths (not updated in a week), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 328,264 confirmed cases, 4,675 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. real estate- Tennessee: currently, they have 752,033 confirmed cases, 10,812 confirmed deaths, and 716,136 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 709,729 confirmed cases, 5,257 confirmed deaths, and 635,960 confirmed recoveries.    For the heck of it, let’s look at another country- Italy: currently, they have 2,668,266 confirmed cases of the dreaded Chi-Vi, 92,338 confirmed deaths, and 2,165,817 confirmed recoveries.   The AP reports that Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo sent at least 9,000 COVID-19-infected patients into New York nursing homes.  For this lowlife scumbag to do this, he did it for ONE THING and ONE THING ONLY: to eliminate the aged, the infirm, the chronically ill, and the mentally challenged.  Governor Cuomo must be put on trial for mass murder.  Either that or he’s too stupid to be governor, perhaps his lower IQ brother Chris could do the job?
  65. 2021 Thursday J:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,430.70, DOWN 7.10 points (-0.023%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,025.77, UP 53.24 points (+0.38%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,916.38, UP 6.50 points (+0.17%).  The price of GOLD is $1,826.70 per troy oz., -0.10 (-0.07%) while the price of SILVER is $27.05 per troy ounce, -0.00 (-0.01%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,243.00 per troy oz, -4.00 (-0.32%) while the price of COPPER is $3.78 per pound, +0.01 (+0.23%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,353.50 per troy oz, +0.00 (+0.00%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $57.95 per barrel, -0.29 (-0.50%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.45 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.95.  Next, $1.00 U.S. = 0.000021 Bitcoin (BTC).  One buck U.S. = 1,400.00 Myanmar Kyat.
  66. 2021 Thursday K: After the Biden administration suggested something that sounds extremely Stalinist, namely prohibiting travel to Florida because Governor Ron DeSantis, Republican, won’t kotow to the new oppressive administration, Governor DeSantis says it’s a load of crap seeing as how the Biden administration could give a hoot about hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens flooding the country whom NO one is monitoring for the Chinese Virus.  Florida has remained open from the earliest days of the Wuhan Flu and its cases are not as bad as say, California and New York.  Still, Bill Gates and Dr. Tony “Three Masks and Googles” Fauci are conspiring to find ways to topple DeSantis at best or to force him in line at worst.   Look for other Stalinist measures to follow suit.  Meanwhile, Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene introduces a bill with which to prohibit federal funds being used for gun control measures.

QQ. 2013 Monday: Amazon.com CEO Jeff Bezos purchases “The Washington Post,” a privately-owned newspaper, which the ultra-leftist liberal socialist transforms into his personal mouthpiece for attacking his enemies. In our view, NO billionaire entrepreneur should ever be able to purchase a media outlet to then use as his personal attack dog on his enemies. Meanwhile, Samantha Power becomes the 28th U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.

Note: some ignorant liberal schmucks such as CNN reporter Jim Acosta believe the statue sets immigration policy for the United States.  Are there no educational requirements for being a White House correspondent?  Obviously not.  The purpose of the statue is to present liberty to the rest of the world, Americans-style but does not mean that just anyone can cross our borders and sink into the background, draining our nation dry.

  36. 1992 Wednesday: The four cops involved in the beating of Los Angeles motorist, Rodney King, find themselves indicted on the charge that they violated the man’s civil rights.

  37. 1996 Monday: The Dallas Cowboys play the Kansas City Chiefs in Monterey, Mexico.
  38. 1997 Tuesday: Ramzi Yousef goes on trial in New York City on charges that he masterminded the World Trade Center bombing.
  39. 2002 Monday: The United States closed its consulate in Karachi, Pakistan. The American government did this after Pakistani authorities removed large concrete blocks from in front of the building and allowed the resumption of normal traffic on the road directly in front of the facility.  In doing this, the Pakistanis attempted to make a point that in case of terrorist attack, the U.S. was on its own.  Screw these bastards.  Elsewhere, the coral-encrusted gun turret of the Civil War ironclad USS Monitor was raised from the floor of the Atlantic, nearly 140 years after the historic warship sank during a tremendous storm.
  40. 2008 Tuesday: The state of Texas executed Jose Medellin, a Mexican-born condemned killer, via lethal injection for his part in the gang rape and murder of two teenage girls, Elizabeth Pena, and Jennifer Ertman, in 1993.

  42. 2011 Friday: NASA announced that its Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter had captured photographic evidence of possible liquid water on Mars during warm seasons. Elsewhere, Standard & Poor’s Financial Services lowered the United States’ AAA credit rating by one notch to AA-plus.
  43. 2013 Monday: Amazon.com CEO Jeff Bezos purchases “The Washington Post,” a privately-owned newspaper, which the ultra-leftist liberal socialist transforms into his personal mouthpiece for attacking his enemies. In our view, NO billionaire entrepreneur should ever be able to purchase a media outlet to then use as his personal attack dog on his enemies.   Meanwhile, Samantha Power becomes the 28th U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.
  44. 2014 Tuesday: Over 1.2 billion security credentials have been stolen in a Russian-led hacking ring; data was stolen from over 420,000 websites, but the websites and victim names have not yet been disclosed.  Meanwhile, Russia counters sanctions by the S. and the European Union by banning all imports of dairy, fish, meat, fruit, and vegetables; Russia prohibited Ukrainian flights from its air space, as well.   Finally, in a move that shocked many, President Barack Hussein Obama signed the Iron Dome Bill providing $225 million so the Israelis could build their iron dome to deflect missiles coming from all directions.
  45. 2015 Wednesday: While investigating a Superfund site, the Environmental Protection Agency causes a major environmental disaster by releasing MILLIONS of gallons of heavy metal-tainted water into Colorado’s Animas River causing untold billions of dollars of damage.

  47. 2017 Saturday: The U.N. Security Council votes to impose additional sanctions on Kim Jong Un and North Korea for the communist thug continuing to fire off missiles and for making threats. We need to nuke HIM.
  48. 2018 Sunday: On the island of Lombok in Indonesia, a 6.9-magnitude earthquake slams the region killing at least 460 and displacing another 350,000 people.
  49. 2019 Monday: New Delhi, India, announces that due to security concerns with neighboring Pakistan, it’s going to revoke Article 370 that will strip Indian-controlled Kashmir’s status as a state and making it a union territory. The Islamists in Pakistan have been trying to subvert Kashmir for many years with the Indians having to kick their butts from time-to-time in order to maintain law and order.  Meanwhile, due to increasing anti-government and anti-Beijing protests in Hong Kong, the local government does what it can to clamp down on the protests and cancels at least 200 flights in and out of the former British territory.   Elsewhere, Toni Morrison, first African American woman to win a Nobel Prize (2010) dies at age 88.  Finally, the European Union’s Copernicus Program- an Earth-observation satellite confirms (drum roll please!) that July 2019 was the hottest month on record.  Hmmm…
  50. 2020 Wednesday: Lebanese authorities inform the world that the BLAST that devastated their main port in Beirut occurred because of tons of ammonium nitrate stored on site for more than six years. Ammonium nitrate is, of course, one of the main components of explosives so for now, it appears NOT to have been a ‘terrorist event’ although we sure as hell believe that it was.  At least 150 people died, more than 3,500 injured, scores of others are missing, and the nation is in turmoil.  The government put several of the port authorities for now under house arrest.  Folks, it was a terrorist mishap or a Mossad strike before Iranians could launch massive terrorist attacks against Israel.  This is what the AICPENDBLOG.COM believes.  We shall see.  Meanwhile, Democratic presidential nominee asks a black reporter when quizzed about doing ‘mental tests’ if he was tested for cocaine prior to going on the Yahoo news program.  Uh, okay, Joe, why you have to racialize everything?
  51. 2020 Wednesday A: Here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 18,635,877 confirmed cases, UP by 190,090 cases, 702,903 confirmed deaths, UP by 11,163 deaths, and 11,206,326 confirmed recoveries, UP by 170,326 recoveries. Here are the numbers for the United States: 4,898,839 confirmed cases, UP by 48,725 new cases, 160,190 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,062 new deaths, and 2,411,277 confirmed recoveries, UP by 44,556 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 MF-ers).
  52. 2020 Wednesday 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: 524,722 confirmed cases, 9,703 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 2,591 confirmed cases, 27 confirmed deaths, and 1,354 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 59,379 confirmed cases, 1,619 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, Georgia: 201,713 confirmed number of cases, 3,984 confirmed number of deaths, but no mention of recoveries.  Still, Governor Brian Kemp seems to be doing an excellent job, better that flipping nitwit in New York, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo.  Congrats!
  53. 2020 Wednesday C: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,201.52, UP 373.05 points (1.39%). Next, the NASDAQ: 10,998.40, UP 57.23 points (0.52%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,327.77, UP 21.26 points (0.64%).  The price of GOLD is $2,053.30 per troy oz., +4.00 (+0.20%) while the price of SILVER is $27.12 per troy ounce, +0.225 (+0.84%).  The price of PLATINUM is $995.00 per troy oz, +5.90 (+0.60%) while the price of COPPER is $2.92 per pound, +0.0015 (+0.05%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $42.33 per barrel, +0.14 (+0.33%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.94 Chi-Com yuan.
  54. 2020 Wednesday D: New York City Mayor Bill Di Blasio orders the establishment of “Checkpoint Charlies” at all major entryways into the crumbling city.  He wants armies of contact tracers and public health employees to ensure that all visitors remain under quarantine for two weeks lest they pay massive fines and spend time in the emptied jails.  Meanwhile, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo says he will buy drinks for all the wealthy people who have fled both the city and the state ‘if they’d just come back.’  NO one is going to return, governor, no one.  You reap what you sow, you worthless POS!
