Trump shares classified intelligence regarding an ISIS attack coming soon against Russia with Russian Ambassador Sergey Ivanovich Kislyak and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in the Oval Office.  (Hence, Trump-Russia ‘collusion’).

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Badfinger disbanded after their previous album and then the duo of Tom Evans and Joey Molland reformed to make a comeback album.  The resulting effort, “Airwaves,” came out on May 11, 1979, and the band featured the pair with a bevy of session musicians around them with which to create somewhat of a new sound.  However, critics were unkind and their record label made little to no effort to promote the album which saw it die a slow death.  Still, it has its moments and fans of the band love it which is why we encourage everyone to seek it out and consider making it a part of your growing album collection- we think you will be glad you did.

LL. 1954 Tuesday A: The attempt to reach Dien Bien Phu by French Union forces fighting from the south in Operation Condor had stalled. A contingency plan- Operation Albatross had already been discussed, a breakout of the 2,000-3,000 fittest men from Dien Bien Phu and Isabelle, but sadly for the garrison, it was slated to May 15 when additional air support and artillery could provide some semblance of aid as to help those breaking out heading to the south. Problem was the troops were unclear as to whether they could sustain the fight until then.

  57. 2017 Monday: Government officials in the South Sudanese state of Unity declare a famine which affects 4.9 million people.  Meanwhile, Democrats and other assorted and sundry anti-Trumpers turn out in the streets, screaming, “NOT MY PRESIDENT!  NOT MY PRESIDENT!”  WTF is wrong with these people?  What’s wrong with them is the fact that they are communists and many are members of various rent-a-mobs.  It is what it is.  Elsewhere, across the Atlantic in Great Britain, millions turn out in the streets to protest over there- coincidence?  Nope.  Still, the British government is considering canceling his upcoming state visit because they’ve bought into the bogus Trump-Russia collusion scam.

  59. 2019 Wednesday: Sadly, Payless ShoeSource files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy protections and announces plans to shutter all its stores in the United States.  Payless has been a staple of American retail for decades so it’s extremely sad to see them vanish.   Speaking of American business giants, Ford Motor Company announces it will stop selling trucks in South America.  Guess the Japanese are taking over down there.
  60. 2020 Thursday: Judge Amy Berman Jackson- an Obama judge- gave Roger Stone- friend and confidant of President Donald J. Trump a 40-month sentence for lying before Congress and a few misguided, unfortunate tweets.  The gist of all this is that conservatives cannot laugh or joke because liberals will charge them with heinous crimes and do everything possible to send them to prison, hopefully, to die there if possible.  Meanwhile, President Trump speaks to a crowd of freed prisoners and slams what is happening to Stone.  Originally, Stone faced a possible sentence of 7-9 years in prison for doing practically nothing but that is how things now are in the United States of America.  Meanwhile, Stone’s defense team is seeking a new trial seeing as how the foreman of the jury, Tomeka Hart, is a raving lunatic leftist who hates Trump and said numerous prejudicial things against Stone and Trump in social media and then lied to Judge Jackson, claiming she could be ‘impartial.’  We think this ho needs to go to prison herself.  Finally, fallout from the previous night’s NBC-TV Democratic debate shows Michael Bloomberg at the bottom of the Democratic cesspool following a dismal debate performance.  Sad.
  61. 2021 Saturday: Day 32 of the Biden Regime.  First, Senator Joe Manchin, D-West Virginia, says he plans to vote ‘NO’ on Joe Biden’s pick to head the White House Office of Management and Budget based on her past bigoted comments towards Republicans.   Next, following Newsmax’ Greg Kelly commenting on one of Joe Biden’s rescue dogs’ appearance, social media went berserk criticizing Mr. Kelly.  What Kelly said was true- the dog needs veterinarian care and a good bath.  ASAP.   Next, the earpiece in Joe Biden’s ear has him say, ‘things could be back to normal by 2022.’  F—k you, Joe, things are going to go back to normal NOW.  We are not going to put up with this bull crap much longer.  #OpenUpNow!  The earpiece also tells Joe Biden to ‘reassure the American people the vaccines are safe,’ the ones he claims did not exist prior to him becoming president.
  62. 2021 Saturday A: Republican Senator Tom Cotton proposes a bill with which to cut the Chi-Coms out of Hollywood.  Everyone knows the Chi-Coms have infested Hollywood as you cannot miss Chi-Com companies in the opening credits anymore.   Meanwhile, United Airlines is trying to discover which one of its employees spilled the beans on the family of Ted Cruz’s recent vacation to Cancun, Mexico.  Like they care.  Next, a GOP group plans on using $25 million to enable Republicans to win back the House in 2022.  In other GOP news, Representative Madison Cawthorne tells Newsmax that the ‘Second Amendment is NOT about hunting but about having the ability to topple a tyrannical government.’  Elsewhere, Representative Devin Nunes, R-CA, also informs Newsmax that the ‘Dems think they’re in Hollywood and that the National Guard are extras on a filmset.’  It’s time for those troops to return home and for the fences to come down.  The ONLY reason the fences remain UP and the troops patrol the streets of Washington, D.C., is because they KNOW they did not win the 2020 Presidential Election.  Period.   Finally, U.S. Congressman Tom Reed, R-NY, says he’s eyeing a potential run against failed Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo.  Hell, AOC could beat this piece of dog s**t hands down.
  63. 2021 Saturday B:  The storms in Texas have killed loads of people, many of whom may not be known for weeks what with people freezing to death because of lack of electricity, natural gas, and mishaps with propane and generator exhausts.  Add to that the fact that people WITH power are finding they have five-figure power bills.  Insane.  Joe Biden authorizes aid for Texas and mumbles something stupid about visiting Texas ‘sometime soon.’  Elsewhere, Ohio State University says it’s considering a debt-free degree.  Here is how you do it- instead of forcing students to take on massive quantities of debt for a degree, how about the schools take 6-percent of their annual income for- say- 30 years or until the debt is paid.  After all, everyone needs to earn money to pay bills.  Once the debt is paid, the former students can then donate time back to the universities to educate the next generation.  Saddling people with hundreds of thousands of dollars of school debt is insane and must stop while at the same time, universities have expenses, too.
  64. 2021 Saturday C: COVID-19 Daily Update:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 110,903,820 confirmed cases, +356,790, 2,456,069, confirmed deaths, +8,454, and 62,511,666 confirmed recoveries, +250,283.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 28,260,716 confirmed cases, up 84,288 from yesterday’s reporting, 500,833 confirmed deaths, UP 2,870, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- NO more updates on this number thanks to Joe Biden, going on for nearly as long as #46 has been in the White House.  Coincidence?  You be the judge. 
  65. 2021 Saturday D: NOTE- in the White House 32 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 171,732 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, talk is cheap, what are YOU going to do about it?  YOU are a worse murderer than Andrew “Killer” Cuomo is in the Empire State- he’s only killed 46,233 people, half of them in nursing homes.   Speaking of this fool who threatens ALL critics with ‘you’ll be sleeping with the fishes tonight,’ he still won’t apologize for the deaths his criminal policies caused.    Note- Chef Bea O’Malley- lifelong member of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day- says “IF Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo has to use a ‘rap cartoon’ to appeal to us black folks to get the Chi-Vi vaccine, it’s all the more reason why ALL black folks should avoid this like a cross-burning in McKittrick, California, on a Friday night.”  Although she does not live in New York, the fact that this drooling mongoloid talks DOWN to black folks and encourages them to get the vaccine is enough reason to send every black and brown person to go running in the other direction.  Thank you, Bea.
  66. 2021 Saturday E: 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: 3,521,418 confirmed cases, 48,842 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,778 confirmed cases, 430 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 336,184 confirmed cases, 4,886 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the country: Alabama.  Currently, they have 485,986 confirmed cases, 9,590 confirmed deaths, but NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 744,513 confirmed cases, 5,526 confirmed deaths, and 693,730 confirmed recoveries.  For the heck of it, let’s look at one other country: Colombia.  Currently, they have  2.217,001 confirmed cases, 58,511 confirmed deaths, and 2,110,562 confirmed recoveries.   In other Beijing Bat Bug news, Pfizer seeks to store their vaccines at less frigid temperatures with which to ease logistics.
  67. 2021 Saturday F: In the Russian arctic, the Nornickel processing plant partially collapses killing three workers and wounding several others.   Speaking of Vladimir Putin’s Russia, Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny loses his appeal and won’t be leaving prison anytime soon.  YOU should never have returned to the former USSR as the next time they poison you, you won’t be taken to Germany for treatment.  Elsewhere, a top official from the UN International Atomic Energy Agency- aka IAEA- is heading to Iran to visit with them regarding the jump-started JCPOA.  Meanwhile, a UN report says that Erik Prince violated an arms embargo on Libya’s rebel groups by shipping them weapons and mercenaries.   In other news, Joe Biden, and Canada’s Justin Trudeau plan to have a ‘virtual summit’ so they can discuss common shared interests between our two countries- like getting the Keystone XL Pipeline up and running again?  We can only hope.
  68. 2021 Saturday G: Having mentioned Texas’ energy grid collapse and the winter storms trashing the area, Representative August Pfluger, R-TX, says that ‘propping up solar and wind is what has caused problems in Texas.’  He also mentions that Joe Biden only approved disaster declaration for 77 of the 254 counties in the Lone Star State when in fact, the declaration of disaster should be for every county in the state.  We agree.  We have friends in Texas and all of them say things are extremely bad there.  Elsewhere, we learn that the left-wing U.S. Department of Justice is investigating seven police officers from five police departments across the country because these people happened to have been in Washington, D.C., on January 6, 2021.  Next, famed attorney and legal professor Dr. Alan Dershowitz tells Newsmax TV that the liberals have become ‘radical and intolerant.’  To us, this means they have become communists.  Time to fight back.  
  69. 2021 Saturday H: Stick around for tonight’s Super Lotto and Powerball drawings. Here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3536 with a prize of $22 million on the line: 02, 05, 08, 21, 45, and Mega 11.  Out of 118,110 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $39,709.  The winning ticket was sold at Dolce Expresso in San Jose, CA 95112.  Next, here are the results for tonight’s Powerball Drawing #822 with a $78 million prize on the line: 04, 08, 22, 32, 58, and Powerball 04.  Out of 59,166 winning tickets, the highest winners were two people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $29,272 apiece.

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

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

ENDNOTES:


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

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

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

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

Meanwhile, former U.S. secretaries of state and ‘hundreds of companies’ all support the suit against President Trump’s ‘Muslim ban.’  Elsewhere, Queen Elizabeth II of England marks her 65th year as monarch.  
  56. 2018 Tuesday: The president of Poland- Andrzej Duda- signs a controversial law that outlaws anyone from saying that the country and its people were complicit in the crimes committed on its soil by the Nazis during the Holocaust.  Many try to infer that the Poles aided the Nazis in helping exterminate the Jews.   Meanwhile, the U.S. calls for a ceasefire as Syrian government airstrikes on rebel positions have killed dozens.  Elsewhere, as the Winter Olympic Games approach in South Korea, Vice President Mike Pence says additional sanctions could be coming for North Korea.
  57. 2019 Wednesday: As problems continue to rage in Virginia over Democrat Governor Ralph “Blackface” Northam’s racist photos in his college yearbook, one of the people who might take his place should he choose to resign- Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax- has his own problems.  In more #MeToo allegations, a woman who worked for the lieutenant governor accuses him of rape, of forced sodomy and the like.  What is going on in this once reputable state?  What is up with all these Democrats?  The state’s AG- Mark Herring- says, ‘yup, I wore blackface at a party back in 1980 while in college.’  Folks, the Democrats always accuse their political enemies of being RACISTS yet here are three bigwig Democrats and two of them are racists and one a sexual offender.  You can’t make this stuff up, folks, you simply cannot.
  58. 2020 Thursday: Following a speech by President Trump at the National Prayer Breakfast, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi goes to the microphone banks and gives one of her most incoherent, rambling, ambling speeches yet, attacking the president, condemning the president, and trying to justify tearing up the president’s speech at Tuesday night’s SOTU address.  How this senile crone clings to power is beyond millions of Americans; we expect her to pay the price on Election Day 2020 becoming the first House speaker to lose the position not once but twice, along with her congressional seat.  Later, President Trump thanked his supporters in both House and Senate, as well as his cabinet members, and other assembled VIPS.  The speech was absolutely wonderful and concluded with the president’s determination to help as many Republicans win or keep their seats in November.  Godspeed, Mr. President, Godspeed.  Meanwhile, in China, more and more images come out via social media showing the outbreak of the corona virus to be far worse than what the communist authorities claim.  We think a biological warfare experiment went awry and now the world is going to pay the price for their bumbling.  Thank you, President Xi, thank you.
  59. 2021 Saturday:  One America News reports that thousands of Americans are receiving tax forms for unemployment insurance for which they did not file.  Next, the TSA announces that passengers who refuse to wear facemasks could face fines of up to $1,500 per citation.  Meanwhile, a recent Rasmussen poll says that most Americans do not believe the ‘news media’ is aggressive with Joe Biden as it was with President Donald J. Trump.  We concur.  Elsewhere, the CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce- Thomas Donohue- announces that he will be leaving his position in favor of Suzanne Clark.  Finally, President Donald J. Trump returns to social media with a post on Gab.
  60. 2021 Saturday A: In New York’s 22nd U.S. House District, the one in which, Republican Claudia Tenney finally won her old seat back, Democrat Anthony Brindisi, the beaten Democrat, is now crying about the Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic software.  IF you agree to taking another LOOK into the 2020 Presidential Election and how it was stolen from one candidate and given to another, perhaps we will take another look at this House race.  Otherwise, STFU.   Elsewhere, Joe Biden has stripped President Donald J. Trump of his security clearance.   Speaking of Joe Biden, he’s bringing back the ‘President’s weekly radio address.’  Let’s look for an earpiece folks so we can know that someone is putting words in his ear.   Finally, the U.S. Supreme Court partially lifts California’s ban on church gatherings.
  61. 2021 Saturday B: Congressman Hakeem Jeffries, D-NY, says that to accept the GOP counter COVID-19 bill is to commit ‘unconditional surrender.’  Elsewhere, the people are Myanmar are out in the streets protesting the coup against their government even with the Internet shut down.  The interesting thing about this is the Biden administration is upset about the coup in Burma but could care less that he won the 2020 Presidential Election via a…coup.  The Democrats, the RINOs, the Chi-Coms, and Canada- among others- conspired to topple President Trump and to then shove the senile usurper into his place.  What the flaming f**k? 
  62. 2021 Saturday C: COVID-19 Daily Update:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 105,461,681 confirmed cases, +238,473, 2,300,891, confirmed deaths, +7,628, and 58,645,012 confirmed recoveries, +144,616.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 27,054,709 confirmed cases, up 78,221 from yesterday’s reporting, 463,090 confirmed deaths, UP 1,837, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- NO more updates on this number thanks to Joe Biden, going on for nearly as long as #46 has been in the White House.  Coincidence?  You be the judge.  NOTE- in the White House 17 DAYS, apparently the U.S. will NO longer report the number of recoveries.  Shame on you, Chi-Com Joe.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 134,662 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, talk is cheap, what are YOU going to do about it?  Maybe you will be a worse murderer than Andrew “Killer” Cuomo is in the Empire State?
  63. 2021 Saturday D: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,395,385 confirmed cases, 43,647 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,286 confirmed cases (again, Hawaii is no longer reporting their case numbers in more than a week), 416 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 323,334 confirmed cases, 4,526 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the country: Georgia.  Currently, they have 932,912 confirmed cases, 14,858 confirmed deaths, but NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 680,856 confirmed cases, 5,020 confirmed deaths, and 590,822 confirmed recoveries.  For the heck of it, let’s look at one other country: the United Kingdom.  The UK has 3.929,835 confirmed cases, 112,092 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed deaths.  What a load of crap, share the TRUTH! 
  64. 2021 Saturday E: The Biden administration ends another Trump era agreement, this one in which, asylum-seeking illegal aliens were able to be returned back to El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.  Oh, thank you, Joe, for swarming our country with millions more illegal aliens to whom you are going to grant citizenship.  Can the country survive?  Elsewhere, Michigan is the first state revamping the state’s GOP leadership and folks, they are recruiting strong Trump supporters which is good.   Meanwhile, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers wins his third NFL MVP Award making him only the sixth person in NFL history to win three or more such honors.  Congratulations, Aaron.   Finally, the now discredited Lincoln Project continues imploding as yet another phony- in this case, Jennifer Horn- threw in the towel following disclosures about gay sex addict John Weaver.
  65. 2021 Saturday F: Here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3532 with an $18 million jackpot on the line: 04, 16, 32, 35, 45, and Mega 17.  Out of 108,912 winning tickets, the highest winners were two people who had FIVE numbers but no Mega for a prize of $19,457 apiece.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #818 with a $30 million jackpot up for grabs: 01, 16, 48, 49, 65, and Power 08.  Out of 54,318 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $27,839.
  66. 2021 Saturday G: The former 60th U.S. Secretary of State George P. Schultz died at his home in Stanford, California, at age 100 today.  A Republican, he served under President Ronald Reagan / served from 07-16-1982 to 01-20-1989.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

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

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

  48. 2018 Thursday: Richard Overton, the nation’s oldest living World War II veteran who was also believed to be the oldest living man in the U.S., died in Texas at the age of 112.   Meanwhile, Fake News Media continues lamenting how the ‘government shutdown’ may continue into the New Year.  The only reason it’s going in the first place is because Democrats won’t fund the southern border wall, a wall that will STOP open borders.  Democrats wise the f**k up, we don’t want to be overrun by swarms of illegal aliens.
  49. 2019 Friday: While enfeebled House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi continues holding the articles of impeachment lodged against President Donald J. Trump but not carried over to the Senate as the law states they must, experts continue debating whether ‘Trump is actually impeached’ of he is not.  Pelosi says, ‘he is and will forever be’ but others say, ‘no, he’s not, not until the declining speaker carries them over to the upper chamber and presents them to the Senate majority leader.’   Meanwhile, the Federal Reserve claims that ‘Trump’s economic war with communist China has backfired.’  They don’t like the tariffs. 
  50. 2020 Sunday: Republican Congressman-elect Andrew Clyde of Georgia’s 9th congressional district wants to eliminate ALL firearms background checks as a means of protecting the 2nd Amendment from liberal dismantlement.  Meanwhile, New York state Democrats urge the uppity Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez NOT to primary Senate Minority Leader Chuckie Schumer when he comes up for re-election.  We hope she does as it will be the end of her political career.   
  51. 2020 Sunday A: The Georgia Bureau of Investigation and election investigators are running another audit of election signatures.  Speaking of fraudulent elections, President Donald J. Trump calls out the Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel, Democrat, for resisting calls for an investigation into the rampant voter fraud and corruption that occurred across the state in the hours and days after Election Day November 3, 2020.  Meanwhile, in Rockford, Illinois, cops are on a manhunt after last night’s fatal shootings at the Don Carter Lanes bowling alley in which three people died and another three were wounded.   Elsewhere, after another thug fires into a crowd in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, two people died and several others were injured.  Cops there are seeking the 37-year-old shooter.
  52. 2020 Sunday B: In Nashville, federal, state, and local cops are closing in on the perp behind the RV bomb explosion in downtown that damaged 41 buildings- a revised figure from the original 20- and searched the home of a suspect, a computer tech specialist named Anthony Quinn Warner. 
  53. 2020 Sunday C: We learned of yet another outrage committed by Nancy Pelosi’s nephew, Governor Gavin Newsom of California.  Californians voted to increase gas taxes two election cycles ago so the state’s crumbling roads systems could be repaired.  The promise to the voters was that the tax revenues would go directly to the road repairs but oh, no, with the stroke of a pen on an executive order, Gavin Newsom redirected the $5 billion the road improvement law raised into fighting GLOBAL WARMING as well as funding the defunct high-speed rail system (and we also think into CalPERS, the state’s penniless state employees retirement fund).  Anyone living in California MUST SIGN the recall petition.  This POS must go.
  54. 2020 Sunday D: On the healthcare front, we learn that 1.56 billion PPE masks will find their way into the Pacific and Indian Oceans this year because Asians could give a flying f**k about polluting the world’s oceans.  Meanwhile, as fears increase over the new strain of the Chi-Vi discovered in Great Britain, California health officials now are testing for the B1.1.7 strain of the Chi-Com Virus.  Speaking of this foul lab-engineered disease, a New York state healthcare network is under investigation for unauthorized distribution of the Wuhan Virus vaccine.   Elsewhere, Japan shuts down air travel other than for its citizens returning home over fears of the B1.1.7 Xi Jinping Bat Flu strain.   Finally, three European nations- Germany, Hungary, and Slovakia administer the first China Virus vaccinations in Europe to citizens over the age of 80.
  55. 2020 Sunday E: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Yellow Bat Flu- the -disease the Chi-Coms manufactured in their Wuhan biowarfare lab and their allies, the Democratic Party- used to throw the election to “Pro-China Joe” Biden, aka “Chi-Com Joe”:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 80,671,407 confirmed cases, +505,047, 1,762,630, confirmed deaths, +7,868, and 45,612,622 confirmed recoveries, +362,356.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 19,262,641 confirmed cases, up 227,422 from yesterday’s reporting, 336,458 confirmed deaths, UP 1,819, and 8,412,707 confirmed recoveries, UP 97,410.
  56. 2020 Sunday F: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 2,144,430 confirmed cases, 24,231 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 20,970 confirmed cases, 285 confirmed deaths, and no longer any mention of confirmed recoveries at this point.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 240,763 confirmed cases, 3,283 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: New Jersey- currently, they have 463,166 confirmed cases, 18,630 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo is living there: 401,470 confirmed cases, 3,226 confirmed deaths, and 364,012 confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of Israel, anti-Benjamin Netanyahu protesters are in the streets of the country demanding he step down from office.
  57. 2020 Sunday G: White House economic adviser Stephen Moore says that ‘tax cuts for businesses should be included in the COVID-19 relief bill,’ which would help all of them get back on their feet sooner as would the authoritarian governors allowing everyone to return to work instead of persecuting people who want to open their businesses or return to work.    Regarding the economy, U.S. retail sales have risen by 3-percent over the course of the holidays meaning big box stores and online businesses are cleaning up while smaller businesses are dying.
  58. 2020 Sunday H: Here are today’s NFL games: (5) Chicago Bears, 41 (8-7) @ Jacksonville Jaguars, 17 (1-14) Sunday 10:00 A.M.  (6) Atlanta Falcons, 14 (4-11) @ Kansas City Chiefs, 17 (14-1) 10:00 A.M.  (7) Indianapolis Colts, 24 (10-5) @ Pittsburgh Steelers, 28 (12-3) 10:00 A.M.  (8) Cleveland Browns, 16 (10-5) @ New York Jets, 23 (2-13) 10:00 A.M.  (9) Cincinnati Bengals, 37 (4-10-1) @ Houston Texans, 31 (4-11) 10:00 A.M.  (10) New York Giants, 13 (5-10) @ Baltimore Ravens, 27 (10-5) 10:00 A.M.  (11) Denver Broncos, 16 (5-10) @ Los Angeles Chargers, 19 (6-9) 1:05 P.M.  (12) Carolina Panthers, 20 (5-10) @ Washington Redskins, 13 (6-9) 1:05 P.M.

  59. 2020 Sunday I:  Wow, another week comes to an end and the Chi-Coms and their allies in Iran (s-hole country), Russia (another s-hole country), Canada (a real s-hole country), and Cuba, Venezuela, and other s-hole countries NEVER sleep nor do their Democratic Party allies in the U.S.  We will keep you posted- you stick around and find out WTF they’re doing…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Peter Wolf released his third solo album, “Up to No Good” on February 19, 1990, to critical acclaim.  Once again, he had new songwriting partners and a cast of musicians from all over the place with which to round out and deliver a broader sound than his previous two efforts.  Although not as commercially successful as his first two efforts, fans enjoyed it as they every release the famed vocalist releases which is why we encourage the readership to seek this album out at your favorite site for music and add it to your growing album collection.

  41. 1998 Sunday: In Venezuela, former Lt. Col. Hugo Chavez, who had staged a bloody coup attempt six years earlier, was elected president much to the shock of the people of that country as he was little more than a communist POS scumbag.  During his reign and that of his successor Nicolas Maduro, the country has descended into deep poverty where people eat the zoo animals and their pets to stay alive.  It is time for the United Nations to send troops and stop the insanity in this once-prosperous country.
  42. 2001 Thursday: The House of Representatives by a one-vote margin, gave President George W. Bush more power to negotiate global trade deals.  Of course, the Democrats did not want this, still chafing at the bit for having the ‘election stolen from them’ as they claimed throughout the eight years of his presidency.
  43. 2004 Monday: Militants struck the U.S. Consulate in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, with explosives and machine guns, killing nine people in an attack claimed by al-Qaida.  Elsewhere, Ohio certified President George W. Bush’s 119,000-vote victory over Democratic nominee Senator John F. Kerry, even as the Kerry campaign and third-party candidates prepared to demand a statewide recount.
  44. 2005 Tuesday: The American Civil Liberties Union files a case in federal court on behalf of a German citizen who claims that the CIA kidnapped him- what they call ‘rendition’- took him to Afghanistan and tortured him for information.  When the CIA realized he was not the guy they thought he was, they flew him back to Europe and dumped in Germany.   Meanwhile, as the U.S. ramps up the attack on the Iraqi city of Ramadi, hundreds of families are fleeing the city to escape the fighting between al-Qaida and the U.S.
  45. 2006 Wednesday: The Iraq Study Group- the ISG- says that the situation in Iraq is ‘grave’ and ‘deteriorating.’  Funny how the Democrats- with the exception of Senator Bernie Sanders voted to go to war in Iraq and then when the weapons of mass destruction did not materialize, they stabbed President George W. Bush in the back.  We at the AICPENDBLOG.COM believe that this is one of the earliest examples of Deep State manipulation- they encouraged Bush #43 to go to war in Iraq, an unnecessary war to be sure, one that destabilized the entire region and put Iran on an upward trajectory.
  46. 2007 Thursday: President George W. Bush announced a plan to freeze interest rates on subprime mortgages held by hundreds of thousands of homeowners.  Elsewhere, we learn that the CIA has destroyed interrogation tapes from at least jihadists detained at a CIA black site prison.  Everyone wants to punish the Central Intelligence Agency for doing what must be done in the War on Terror so stop with the whining liberals.  Enough is enough!
  47. 2008 Saturday: After 28 years in a coma, heiress Martha “Sunny” von Bülow dies at age 76.  Her husband was tried twice for trying to murder her with an insulin overdose.  The first time he was convicted while the second time, he was acquitted.
  48. 2009 Sunday: Tomorrow a big Climate Change summit opens in Copenhagen and President Barack Hussein Obama is going to be one of the big speakers there.  Woo-oo. Fascinating thing, a decade later, the world is still kicking although the liberals continue telling us each year, we have arrived at the point of no return.  Meanwhile, NATO pledges another 7,000 troops for the war in Afghanistan.
  49. 2010 Monday: Wikileaks releases a diplomatic cable in which, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton says that ‘wealthy Saudis are the largest provider of funds to Sunni terrorist groups.’  The cables also suggest that the Arab Persian Gulf states and Saudi Arabia agree with Israel’s view that the Iranian nuclear program is moving along too fast and that a first strike against them might be the best way to go.
  50. 2011 Tuesday: In Kabul, Afghanistan, the so-called ‘religion of peace’- Islam- strikes again.  During the festival of Ashura, a terrorist attack targets a Shiite shrine killing at least 50 worshippers and injuring hundreds more.  WTF is wrong with you people?   The nation’s President Hamid Karzai cancels a planned trip to the United Kingdom to deal with the aftermath of this diabolical attack.
  51. 2012 Thursday: Ed Cassidy, famed drummer for the lifetime of the rock band, Spirit[v], from the early 1960s until 1997 when his stepson and co-founder died, died from cancer at age 89.  Meanwhile, Huw Lloyd Langton—longtime guitarist with the British space-rock band, Hawkwind[vi] (1969-1971 / 1979-1988)—died on this date.  Elsewhere, the toll from Typhoon Bopha that devastated the southern Philippine Islands has killed at least 477 people and displaces tens of thousands of citizens.
  52. 2013 Friday: Shanghai officials deliver the highest-level health warning as a record level of smog shrouds the city; this caused hundreds of flights to undergo cancellation or delays.  Meanwhile, the people of South Africa mourn the loss of Nelson Mandela, a man who went from being a ‘second-class citizen’ to being one of the world’s great leaders.
  53. 2014 Saturday: President Obama announces that he is going to maintain troop levels in Afghanistan to counter the rebirth of the Taliban and the arrival of ISIS elements.  He pledged that he would reduce troop levels to 9,800; however, if the region stabilizes, he plans to reduce levels to 5,500 before leaving office.  Meanwhile, NASA awakens its New Horizons spacecraft after having launched it nine years earlier and having crossed more than 3 billion miles, so it will be ready for its fly-by of Pluto and its planned data collection sometime in January 2015.      
  54. 2015 Sunday: After being given 48 hours to pull their troops out of northern Iraq, Turkey says it’s going nowhere.  The Turkish president claims the troops are there as part of an international force with which to train Iraqis to fight the ISIS trash carrying attacks in the region.  No, the Turks are causing trouble.  We hope someone deals with President Erdogan in the time-honored way of deposing dictators. 
  55. 2016 Tuesday: In Syria, government forces seize three-quarters of eastern Aleppo from the ISIS filth infesting the place like the vermin they are.  The fighting is tough and the casualties high yet the ISIS Untermenschen are being forced into a shrinking perimeter.  Meanwhile, U.S.-supported Iraqi forces are stepping up the fight to reclaim Mosul from the ISIS sub-humans holding the city.  Elsewhere, President Barack Hussein Obama gives his final national security address.
  56. 2017 Wednesday: President Donald Trump declared Jerusalem[vii] to be Israel’s capital, defying warnings from the Palestinians and others around the world that he would be destroying hopes for Mideast peace.  Meanwhile, Time magazine named as its Person of the Year the “Silence Breakers,” those who had shared stories about sexual assault and harassment.  Elsewhere, the Republican-controlled House of Representatives votes 364-58 against a bill put forth by the Democrats to impeach President Trump.   Democratic dimwit Congressman Al Green of Texas put forth the bill saying, “Donald John Trump, by causing such harm to the society of the United States, is unfit to be president and warrants impeachment, trial and removal from office.”  Congressman Green- you, sir, are unfit for office.  Resign NOW.
  57. 2018 Thursday: Flag-waving crowds lined the tracks as a special train carried the flag-draped casket of former President George H.W. Bush from the Houston area to College Station, Texas, for burial on the grounds of his presidential library.
  58. 2019 Friday: Today was the deadline for the Trump administration to determine if they were going to dispatch a legal team to the House Judiciary Committee’s  Monday, December 09, 2019, impeachment hearings.  With a half hour to go, the Trump administration’s attorneys said, “NOPE,” leaving Chairman Jerrold Nadler in shock, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi enfeebled and chomping at the bit, and House Intel Committee Chairman Adam Schiff[viii] stunned.  Meanwhile, unemployment hit the lowest since 1969 at 3.5-percent[ix].  The creation of 226,000 new jobs in November 2019 was higher than expected and economists were excited across the country[x]. Meanwhile, a member of the Saudi Arabian air force, training with the U.S. military in Pensacola, Florida, opened fire on fellow airmen, killing three and wounding seven and then died when local law enforcement officers shot the POS dead.  King Salman apologized to President Trump and to the United States for the actions of the murderous scumbag.  
  59. 2020 Sunday: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Yellow Bat Flu- the -disease the Chi-Coms manufactured in their Wuhan biowarfare lab and their allies, the Democratic Party- used to throw the election to “Pro-China Joe” Biden, aka “Chi-Com Joe”:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 67,008,357 confirmed cases, +551,326, 1,535,100, confirmed deaths, +7,777, and 43,037,012 confirmed recoveries, +312,117.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 14,879,831 confirmed cases, up 180,844 from yesterday’s reporting, 285,864 confirmed deaths, UP 1,225, and 6,971,281 confirmed recoveries, UP 42,261.  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: 1,355,971 confirmed cases, 19,886 confirmed deaths (number readjusted DOWN from last week), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 18,841 confirmed cases, 262 confirmed deaths, and no longer any mention of confirmed recoveries at this point.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 184,079 confirmed cases, 3,065 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Montana- currently, they have 67,875 confirmed cases, 736 confirmed deaths, and 50,287 confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo is living there: 344,906 confirmed cases, 2,917 confirmed deaths, and 327,972 confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, amazing as it seems, President Donald J. Trump’s personal attorney, the man fighting to expose the BULLS**T the Democrats, their allies in Canada, Iran, Russia, and their masters in Beijing pulled off on November 3, 2020, now has the Chi-Vi.  That means that he, the state legislatures before which he appeared,  and all the rest of the people in the fight should have to quarantine if we are going to follow the bull crap the Democrats are forcing upon us.  Hydroxychloroquine and Regeneron, Mr. Mayor.   Speaking of the disease, Senator Bill Cassidy, R-LA, says the COVID-19 relief bill is not a stimulus bill.
  60. 2020 Sunday A: In Washington state, thugs in Antifa and Black Lives Matter go on the offensive against Trump supporters beating, assaulting, and threatening them.   Remember: the ONLY GOOD COMMUNIST is a DEAD COMMUNIST.  Meanwhile, Senator Kelly Loeffler, R-GA, debates radical leftist ‘Reverend’ Raphael Warnock.  She points out his numerous flaws but left out one key thing: she should have asked the ‘Reverend’ ‘You said the U.S. military cannot serve God and be in the military at the same time, sir.  Can YOU serve God and Karl Marx at the same time?”  She should have asked this Che Guevara-loving POS this poignant question in front of a national audience and watched him sputter and stammering.  Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo- and loads of other countries around the world- are blasting elections in Venezuela.  Say- didn’t the Democrats use the same systems and software Nicolas Maduro uses to steal elections in HIS country in OUR country?  WTF is going on here?
  61. 2020 Sunday B: Here are the NFL scores for today beginning with a recap of Thursday Night Football’s game: (1) New Orleans Saints, 21 (10-2) @ Atlanta Falcons, 16 (4-8) Thursday Night 5:20 P.M.

Dianne Feinstein, for one- she had a MSS chauffeur for 20 years).   All of these programs should have never been started and/or should have been terminated long ago.
  63. 2020 Sunday D:  Folks, we encourage you to stick around and discover what the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party lackeys are up to today.

TODAY IN HISTORY, SUNDAY DECEMBER 06, 2020

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

Sunday, December 06, 2020:

FOOTNOTES:


[i] Not sure when we will begin promoting the music of R.E.M. but look forward to doing so as they are awesome.

[ii] 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.    We hope you will seek them out and consider adding these albums to your collection.  We thank you.

[iii] We shared the music of the Stones beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members’ solo projects.  We sure as heck hope you check out the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Keith Richard, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, and Mick Taylor.  Ronnie Wood you can find during the presentation of the Faces. 

[iv] We look forward to doing the music of Roy Orbison and other old rockers sometime in the next decade.  Please, stay tuned for further information.

[v] We began promoting the music of Spirit and of Randy California beginning on Monday, 18-June-2012 through Friday, 10-August-2012.  Please seek them out and consider adding their music to your collection.

[vi] We hope to present the music of this UK space rock band, Hawkwind, sometime in the next five years or so.  Please remain vigilant for additional information.

[vii] Jerusalem IS the capital of Israel and it took President Donald J. Trump to be the one to officially recognize the city as such, fulfilling a campaign promise that numerous other U.S. presidential candidates and presidents swore to do.  The world did not meltdown, the region did not explode, and the Palestinians remain as worthless as ever.  Advice to people living in the Gaza Strip- how making the Gaza Strip ‘great again’ instead of fucking around like a bunch of worthless barbarians?

[viii] This scumbag finds himself in his own trouble for spying on House Intel minority ranking member, Devin Nunes, as well as of Rudy Giuliani, the president’s personal attorney.  He finds himself in his own bind for overstepping his powers and could in turn face impeachment or removal from Congress on his own.

[ix] It is important to note that the statistics demonstrate the LOWEST black, Latino, and Asian unemployment numbers EVER so why won’t the flipping Democrats pass the USMCA which would add more jobs to the U.S. economy?  Because the Democrats HATE President Trump and want to destroy him.  Also, while the U.S. added jobs, Canada lost more than 71,000 jobs during the same period. 

[x] The DOW finished UP at 337.27 (28,015.06), the S&P 500 at 28.48 (3,145.91), and the NASDAQ at 85.83 (8,656.53). It is a grand time to be an American and the Democrats are doing everything possible to trash the country because they know they are going to lose the November 2020 Elections BIG TIME.

  56. 2020 Friday: Thanks to the persecution of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn by out-of-control leftist Judge Emmet G. Sullivan, we have learned that the main sub-source for the so-called (Christopher) Steele Dossier is Ukrainian born Igor “Iggy” Danchenko, a foreign national investigated by the FBI from 2009 to 2011.  Apparently, he was ‘flipped’ by the Obama administration and would become a major player in the fabrication of the bogus dossier used by the Hillary 2016 presidential campaign and Democrats to destroy then-candidate and now-president Donald J. Trump.   We also have learned- thanks again to Judge Sullivan- that several FBI agents involved in SPYING on Trump and his campaign, White House, and cabinet officials understood the investigation to be extremely flawed and took out personal liability insurance to protect them when the proverbial s**t hit the fan.  The longer Democrat players fail to step forward and begin ‘fessing up,’ the worse we hope things will be for them when the American people know everything.  Meanwhile, the president continues to call what the Democrats have tried to do to him a ‘coup’ which is how a majority of Americans see it.  He also questions ‘WHY the wife of the Moscow, Russia, mayor gave Hunter Biden $3.5 million a short time ago.’  What is up with Hunter?
  57. 2020 Friday A: In Louisville, Kentucky, this morning- following a night of rioting by Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and other human scum- well-known attorney and race-baiter Benjamin Crump does his best to stir up still more violence and to help him do this, he has brought Jacob Blake Sr., father of the thug shot and crippled in Kenosha, Wisconsin, to the smoldering city.  Mr. Crump demands ALL grand jury information be made available to the public, including the names of the grand jurors and witnesses.  He wants to know if Breonna Taylor’s boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, testified at the proceedings.  Why don’t you ask him, sir?   A recent Fox News Channel poll shows that 44-percent of the American people disapprove of the mob violence across the nation, up from the thirties a month or two ago.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump signs an executive order that will send $500 billion to black communities across the country.  The order also calls Antifa and the Ku Klux Klan as terrorist groups.
  58. 2020 Friday B: President Trump is on the campaign trail today with stops in Florida where he attended a roundtable for Latinos event and says he ‘has done more for Latinos than any other president’ which is true.  He plans to hold a rally in Virginia with the Governor Ralph Northam and his wife NOW test positive for the Wuhan Xi Jinping Chinese Bat Flu Virus leading the state government scrambling for ways to prevent the campaign rally.  We know it will become a ‘protest’ which will legitimize the event and stifle the critics.  Meanwhile, popular Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signs an order lifting all remaining COVID-19 restrictions.  Florida is now open for business once more. Elsewhere, former Congressman Ron Paul, father of Senator Rand Paul, entered a hospital in Texas for precautionary reasons.  We hope you are okay.
  59. 2020 Friday C: PAC 12 announces it will play an abbreviated schedule of seven games beginning in November.  Congratulations for coming back!  All major conferences will now be playing or are playing.   President Trump concluded an event- a ‘protest’ if you will- in Georgia and now is on the way to Virginia where he will conduct another ‘protest’ in lieu of being able to hold a political rally.  Elsewhere, Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi when asked if she is going to impeach President Trump again, she nixed that idea what with the election looming in the near future.  She does, however, threaten that the House is going to pass a bill that will limit HOW many SCOTUS nominees a president can nominate and how long they can serve once confirmed.  Since the Democrats have been threatening to stack the courts, we think the president should nominate another seven- instead of one- and get them jump-started in what they now swear to do should “Pro-China Joe” Biden win on November 3.
  60. 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: 32,356,829 confirmed cases, +317,687, 984,590, confirmed deaths, +5,202, and 22,278,696 confirmed recoveries, +254,052.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 7,099,967 confirmed cases, up 53,170 from yesterday’s reporting, 206,592 confirmed deaths, UP 978, and 3,817,235 confirmed recoveries, UP 16,490.  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: 801,845 confirmed cases, 15,398 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 11,908 confirmed cases, 124 confirmed deaths, and 5,265 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 88,607 confirmed cases, 2,175 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 215,273 confirmed cases, 1,405 confirmed deaths, and 152,837 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other state: Texas- currently, they have 758,646 confirmed cases, 15,595 confirmed deaths, and 642,149 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Greg Abbott, for sharing ALL the numbers.
  61. 2020 Friday E: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 27,173.96, UP 358.32 points (+1.34%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  10,913.56, UP 241.30 points (+2.26%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,298.46, UP 51.87 points (+1.60%).  Price of GOLD: $1,864.30 per troy oz., -2.00 (-0.11%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $22.98 per troy oz., -0.108 (-0.47%).  Price of PLATINUM: $841.60 per troy oz., -0.40 (-0.05%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,222.20 per troy oz., -4.70 (-0.21%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $2.98 per #, +0.007 (+0.24%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $40.04, -0.21 (-0.52%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.82 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.86 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.80 Afghan afghani.
  62. 2020 Friday F: NO one knows what the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party flunkies are up to on any given day so please stick around and we’ll find out together.

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.
  55. 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?

  57. 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.
  58. 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!).
  59. 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.
  60. 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.
  61. 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.
  62. 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!
  63. 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.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

 

 

#ST0001.1w Slow Motion #23 07-02-2020 (400)

 

Supertramp released its final studio album, “Slow Motion” on April 23, 2002.   The band now featured Rick Davies (keyboards, vocals, harmonicas), John Anthony Helliwell (saxophones, flutes, vocals), Cliff Hugo (bass), Mark Hart and Carl Verheyen (guitars, backing and lead vocals), and Bob Seibenberg (drums and percussion) along with a few others to add seasoning to the music.  Any band with a more than two-decade (or more) history undergoes changes, sometimes for the best, others for the worst, but this is a welcome return to the sound that made them monsters of the music tours back in the day.  We know you are going to enjoy this fine recording so please, seek for it now and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.
