ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Michael Schenker Group roared into Japan 30 years after their first appearance there and recorded a live album as well as a DVD of the concert.  “The 30th Anniversary Concert- Live in Tokyo” hit record store shelves on October 19, 2010.  The band features the amazing Michael Schenker (guitars), Gary Barden (vocals), Neil Murray (bass), Simon Phillips (drums), and Wayne Findlay (keyboards/rhythm guitar/vocals).  There is no dispute that the band members of UFO and the subsequent side bands and endeavors are among the greatest veteran rock musicians on the globe.  These guys rock until they drop and even then continue rocking.  We love this album and we encourage everyone to visit whatever site it is you do so you can pick it up, add it to your collection, and enjoy for years- if not decades to come.  You will be glad you did.

  30. 1945 Saturday: The Soviet Union agreed to enter World War II against Japan on this date.  In a couple of months, they would be fighting to capture Berlin; once Berlin fell, they would redistribute their forces to the Far East.  Meanwhile, the Battle of Manila in the Philippines gets underway today as U.S. forces begin attacking Japanese forces clinging to the capital city.  Elsewhere, during heavy bombing of Berlin, the ‘hanging judge’- Judge Roland Friesler- the man who condemned the Valkyrie plotters to slow strangulation for trying to assassinate Adolf Hitler- dies in the rubble of his court.

  47. 1998 Tuesday: Texas executed Karla Faye Tucker, 38, for the pickax killings of two people in 1983; she was the first woman executed in the United States since 1984.  A U.S. Marine fighter jet sliced through the cable of a ski gondola in Italy, sending the car plunging hundreds of feet, killing all 20 people inside.

  55. 2014 Monday: The Denver Broncos’ quarterback Peyton Manning wins a record fifth Associated Press MVP Award; no one has ever won the award more than three times.  Meanwhile, according to Brainy History, the abortion rate in the United States is reportedly at its lowest in three decades.  The rate for 2011 stands at 16.9 abortions per 1,000 women of childbearing years whereas in 2008, it was 19.4 while back in 1981, it was at an all-time high of 29.3.
  56. 2015 Tuesday:  After a lapse of 55 years, novelist Harper Lee releases “Go Set a Watchman,” the sequel to her famous novel, “To Kill a Mockingbird,” which set the character Scout as an adult rather than the child the character was in the first book, “Mockingbird.”  The publisher convinced the author to go the “Mockingbird” book first.
  57. 2016 Wednesday: Both Japan and South Korea put their militaries on alert and begin making strong statements towards North Korea who is testing and going to continue testing long-range ballistic missiles.  Japan promises to shoot down any such aerial vehicles traversing its airspace.  Meanwhile, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul and former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum, both Republicans, suspend their races for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination. 
  58. 2017 Friday: The U.S. Department of the Treasury announces new sanctions on the criminal regime in Iran following a recent ballistic missile test that goes against deals struck by the Obama regime and the ayatollahs.  Thirteen people and 12 entities tied to Tehran are on the list.  Elsewhere, federal Judge James Robart issues a temporary injunction against the Trump travel ban imposed on majority Muslim countries with deep ties to terrorism.
  59. 2018 Saturday: The New York Times reported an accusation from actress Uma Thurman that disgraced movie mogul and BIG Democratic donor Harvey Weinstein had forced himself on her sexually years ago in a London hotel room; Weinstein acknowledged making an “awkward pass” (which means he did his best to RAPE her) but strongly denied any physical assault. 
  60. 2019 Sunday: In the lowest scoring super bowl of all time, Super Bowl LIII, the New England Patriots defense stifled the high-scoring Los Angeles Rams by a final score of 13-3.  This was perhaps the most boring super bowl of all time.  Julian Edelman was the game’s MVP as he provided most of the offense that won the game.  Maroon 5, Big Boi and some other schlub were the half-time show.  Elsewhere, Pope Francis becomes the first Roman Catholic pontiff to visit the Arabian Peninsula when he visits Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates.
  61. 2020 Monday: Much to the shock of his radio listeners, Rush Limbaugh announced that his doctors had diagnosed him with advanced lung cancer.  He promises to soldier on and we certainly hope that he can.  We are rooting for you, Big Guy, but please, give up the stogies.   Elsewhere, as cases of COVID-19 continue getting out of hand, the Cruise Lines International Association bans all cruise lines stops in mainland China.  Meanwhile, on the Greek island of Lesbos which is overrun with thousands of Muslim ‘migrants’ from the Middle East, riot police have to break out tear gas and batons to quell migrants rioting and burning their holding camps over poor conditions.  The answer is simple: GO HOME.
  62. 2020 Monday A: As the impeachment trial of President Donald J. Trump nears its conclusion in the U.S. Senate, House managers (prosecutors) and defense attorneys for the 45th president begin making their closing remarks.  West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin urges for censure rather than conviction but of course, his far-left Democratic Party colleagues don’t listen to him.  The trial has been a farce from start to finish, mostly boring but at other times laughable.  The Democrats genuinely believe they are ‘killing it’ when in fact, they are turning off millions of Americans. 
  63. 2021 Wednesday: U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen calls a meeting with the SEC and the Federal Reserve over the GameStop craze.  Apparently, some people can make big money and others cannot; what a shame.  Next, as the GOP implores Joe Biden to agree to a lower COVID-19 Relief/Stimulus bill, he waves them off- no way.   Next, the House GOP are holding a meeting to determine the futures of Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene and Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney who has become extremely toxic.  We expect Greene will lose all committee assignments and will suffer in-party censure whereas a party will be thrown for Cheney.  IF this occurs, my colleagues in California say the days of voting for Kevin McCarthy are fast approaching an end.   Speaking of California politics, reprobate Democrat Congressman Adam “POS” Schiff is badgering soon-to-be-former Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom to make him the Golden State’s attorney general. 
  64. 2021 Wednesday A: The un-American New York Times is facing surprising blowback following their encouragement of Joe Biden to form a “1984-style” Truth Commission with which, liberals and BIG TECH can track, monitor, and disappear Americans’ online words and deeds.  WTF is wrong with these people?  Meanwhile, the U.S. Supreme Court does not accede to the Biden administration’s request to toss hearings on Trump administration immigration policies into the garbage, merely postpones them.  We shall see.  Elsewhere, Sinophile U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken announces the U.S. and Russia have extended the New Start Treaty for another five years.   Finally, Claudia Tenney, congresswoman from New York’s 22nd Congressional District declares victory with a 123-vote lead over sitting congressman Anthony Brindisi.
  65. 2021 Wednesday B: House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, she with the eyes drooping in two different directions, says ‘a 9/11-style TRUTH COMMISSION       is necessary to figure out how the Capitol Building was stormed by Antifa members posing as Trump supporters on January 6.  We doubt anything more will come from this because as numerous video clips continue surfacing showing Capitol Hill police officers waving the FALSE FLAG operators into the building, there can be but one conclusion: Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi- as head of the Capitol Police Department- gave the word to allow her Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs easy entry in the hope they could use it against former President Donald J. Trump.  We look forward to the results of yet another bogus ‘investigation’ led by Democrats.  Elsewhere, in California, former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer has thrown his hat into the ring to replace rapidly disappearing Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom.  The mayor’s first campaign ads are spectacular and we hope he will be able to take the seat and save the state.    Finally, climate fraud John F. Kerry is blasted for flying in his PRIVATE JET to receive a ‘climate award.’  Hypocrite!
  66. 2021 Wednesday C: Rep. Nancy Mace calls out the Baby Evita- Sandy Cortez- aka AOC, aka Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez- the biggest leftwing crybaby in Congress, over her claims that she was cowering in her office closet while the EVIL MAGA supporters were outside in the hallway.  Congresswoman Mace who is two doors down from Sandy Cortez says, “IT NEVER HAPPENED.”  Yet, the mainstream news media remains incurious.  Personally, we know AOC had little to fear because she was briefed like everyone else in the Democratic Party that the Antifa and BLM human garbage were going after Republicans.   Elsewhere, Cancel Culture continues trying to destroy Americans, the latest target being Mike Lindell of My Pillow fame.  All because he believes the plentiful evidence of election fraud in November 2020, everyone is trying to shut him up, even that putz Bob Sellers on Newsmax who would not permit him to speak the day before.  Sorry, Newsmax, you need to boot Sellers back to FNC.
  67. 2021 Wednesday D: Communist China warns U.S. Secretary of State Sinophile Anthony Blinken NOT to interfere when it comes to Hong Kong either.  Blinken and the U.S. have already been warned off about interfering in Taiwan so now the Biden administration has been told to butt out on the issue of Hong Kong, too.  Elections have consequences- hey, Joe: are we going to return to the Trans Pacific Partnership, too?   Speaking of the State Department, its spokesperson says a U.N. ambassador must be confirmed and soon IF the United States is going to hold the Chi-Coms accountable.   Meanwhile, we learn that White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, stammering, stuttering, and always ‘circling back’ to answer reporters sent a homophobic tweet about Sen. Lindsey Graham, calling him, “Lady G.”  My, don’t you just love the ‘beautiful people’ that aren’t racists, bigots, homophobes, xenophobes, transphobes, haters, white supremacists, and the like?  Good one, Jen, good one.
  68. 2021 Wednesday E: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 104,142,856 confirmed cases, +570,195, 2,260,283, confirmed deaths, +17,045, and 57,839,230 confirmed recoveries, +336,520.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 26,730,817 confirmed cases, up 206,599 from yesterday’s reporting, 453,059 confirmed deaths, UP 5,312, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP- UNKNOWN- same number as last week’s.  NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 48,215 CHI-VI DEATHS.  Joe, you said you had a plan- where the f**k is it?
  69. 2021 Wednesday 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: 3,350,293 confirmed cases, 41,811 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,070 confirmed cases, 410 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 318,967 confirmed cases, 4,402 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Florida: currently, they have 1,744,619 confirmed cases, 27,467 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 667,216 confirmed cases, 4,928 confirmed deaths, and 589,288 confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other country, shall we?  Brazil: 9,296,245 confirmed cases, 226,666 confirmed deaths, and 8,160,929 confirmed recoveries.    
  70. 2021 Wednesday G:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,723.60, UP 36.12 points (+0.12%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,610.54, DOWN 2.23 points (+0.016%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,830.17, UP 3.86 points (+0.10%).  The price of GOLD is $1,834.80 per troy oz., -0.30 (-0.02%) while the price of SILVER is $26.95 per troy ounce, +0.061 (+0.23%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,112.60 per troy oz, -1.90 (-0.17%) while the price of COPPER is $3.56 per pound, -0.0035 (-0.10%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,276.60 per troy oz, +48.90 (+2.20%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $55.95 per barrel, +0.26 (+0.47%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.20.  Next, one American dollar equals 0.000027 Bitcoin.
  71. 2021 Wednesday H: The U.S. Senate via ‘budget reconciliation process’ has passed Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill.  With the cash flowing in from communist China, this bill will bankrupt the country for generations to come.   Speaking of BIG BUCKS, here are the numbers for tonight’s Super Lotto Draw #3531 with a $17 million pot up for grabs: 04, 15, 27, 28, 34, and Mega 16.  Out of 98,965 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $37,233.  The winning ticket was sold at 7-Eleven at Carnelian Bay, CA 96140.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #817 with $20 million on the line: 05, 37, 40, 64, 66, and Powerball 05.  Out of 50,955 winning tickets, the highest winners in California were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $27,997 apiece.

  57. 2017 Thursday: As the battle to vilify President Donald J. Trump continues, the Washington Post prints a story in which it claims the 45th president berated Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.  The Post reports that Mr. Trump called it ‘the worst call ever’ and expressed his unhappiness over a refugee resettlement deal struck between the Aussies and the Obama regime.  From the very start, legions of spies, leakers, and peeping toms were spying on the new president so they could either frame him for crimes he did not commit or to embarrass him.  Skunks.
  58. 2018 Friday: At the sentencing hearing in Michigan for former sports doctor Larry Nassar, a distraught father of three girls who’d been sexually abused by this POS attempted to attack Nassar before sheriff’s deputies tackled him and hauled him out of court.  Randall Margraves later apologized; the judge said there was “no way” she would fine him or send him to jail for trying to attack Dr. Nassar.  Meanwhile, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell more than 650 points as the stock market completed its worst week in two years amid fears of inflation and disappointing quarterly results from technology and energy giants.
  59. 2019 Saturday: In socialism-ravaged Venezuela, hundreds of thousands of citizens take to the streets protesting their government’s thuggery.  Venezuelan Air Force General Francisco Yanez becomes the first supporter of opposition leader Juan Guiado and denounces the dictatorship of illegitimate leader Nicolas Maduro.   Regarding the crisis in Venezuela, Vice President Mike Pence informs a crowd at a rally in Florida that the time for dialogue is over and that all options are on the table.  Elsewhere, Virginia Governor Ralph “Blackface” Northam says he’s not going to reside because he does not believe that the photos on his college yearbook page depicting him either as a member of the KKK or dressed in blackface are ‘him’ yet there they are- on HIS page.
  60. 2020 Sunday: Today in Super Bowl LIV, the Kansas City Chiefs face off against the San Francisco 49ers.  In a hard-fought game, the Kansas City Chiefs under Coach Andy Reid and quarterback Patrick Mahomes beat Coach Kyle Shanahan and quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo by a final score of 31-20.   We predicted early on that the 49ers and the New England Patriots would meet in Super Bowl LIV but the playoffs saw us half-right.  Pats out in the Wild Card round and instead of the 49ers winning the big prize, the Chiefs won their second overall championship and their first in 50 years.  Wow.  Patrick Mahomes is the MVP.  Congratulations to him, the youngest player to ever win the award in a Super Bowl.
  61. 2020 Sunday A: The Philippines reports the first COVID-19-caused death outside the Chi-Com mainland.  This person was a tourist from the People’s Republic of China.  The government is considering closing its borders to the Chi-Coms which is precisely what New Zealand does- no visitors from communist China.  Elsewhere, Saudi Arabia hosting the upcoming Organization of Islamic Cooperation meeting in Jeddah bans the Iranians from attending which of course leads them to become angry and begin making threats.  Such is their M.O.
  62. 2021 Tuesday: Although we have reported this before, Sandy Cortez, aka Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Baby Evita, aka AOC, must be feeling her oats, folks as once again, we hear rumors that the little skank might primary Senate Majority Leader Charles “Prune Face” Schumer next year.  We suspect that for her, that is the fastest way to be discovered moldering in a landfill.  She also says the Antifa-led Capitol Hill Riots of January 6, 2021, terrified her as she cowered in her bathroom within the building because she is the ‘victim of sexual abuse or assault.’  Honey, most women are- especially those who work in the professional food service industry (as are occasionally young men)- over the course of their lifetimes so grow up, shut up, and move on.  As for challenging “Prune Face,” you must really be sure of yourself.  This is a fight we want to see.  Meanwhile, Congressman Tim Ryan, D-OH, is considering running for outgoing Senator Rob Portman’s seat next year.  We suspect this imbecile has gone as far as he can go.  
  63. 2021 Tuesday A:  President Joe Biden is considering nominating another Obama-Biden alum, former Chicago Mayor Rahm “Dead Fish” Emanuel for ambassador to the People’s Republic of China.  Next, after meeting with 10 GOP moderates and RINOs yesterday in the White House, President Biden was unmoved by their pleas for targeted, less expensive COVID-19 relief measures and is pushing forward with his $1.9 trillion stimulus bill.  There you go, Republicans, Democrats could give a f**k what YOU ask for or say.   Elsewhere, the Daily Beast reports that White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki wants questions of reporters in advance.   Meanwhile, Kansas City, Missouri, Catholic Archbishop Joseph Naumann says that ‘Joe Biden’s soul is in jeopardy.’  Archbishop Naumann, there was a time when the Catholic Church would excommunicate monarchs and kings so where is Pope Francis and why is he not excommunicating this abortion-pushing POS who’s in the White House now?  Enough is enough!  Excommunicate every member of the PRO-DEATH MOVEMENT NOW.
  64. 2020 Tuesday B: As fallout from the now-discredited ‘Lincoln Project’ and founding member John Weaver’s giving young men jobs in exchange for kinky sex around the clock, people are laughing at this collective group of losers who sought to destroy Donald Trump while self-enriching themselves at the same time.  We hear that John Conway allegedly was engaged in the same criminal behavior as his close buddy, John Weaver.  What a bunch of scumbags.  Allegedly!   Elsewhere, 2 FBI agents are dead, three others wounded, and a suspect dead, too, following an early morning shootout in Ft. Lauderdale’s Sunrise suburb today.  The federal agents arrived at a home in the well-to-do neighborhood to serve a federal warrant in a child abuse case.  Meanwhile, Dr. Anthony “Full of Crap” Fauci says everyone might now need to wear ‘two masks’ if we are going to combat the rampaging Chi-Vi.  Uh, Dr. Fauci, approximately one year ago, YOU said masks don’t do any good with viruses.  We guess you must be heavily invested in companies manufacturing PPE gear.   Finally, famed actor Hal Holbrook dies at age 95.  God bless you, Hal.
  65. 2021 Tuesday C: New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo who is under much fire now over his criminal mishandling of the Chinese Virus within the Empire State is going to meet with other governors with President Joe Biden in the White House today, ostensibly to beg for bailouts.  Speaking of COVID-19, former White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney says, Joe Biden is ‘extraordinarily weak’ and that he ‘cannot get a Wuhan Virus relief bill.’  Meanwhile, Democrats are now pushing so-called ‘Baby Bonds’ where America’s children (which most likely means offspring of illegal aliens, too) will be given a ‘grubstake’ in life with a bond of $46,000 at birth.   (Note- the best gift to all America’s young people is to deport EVERY illegal alien from the country which will open more jobs at higher pay as well as bring down costs, most notably in housing and in medicine for all Americans.  Countries that defend their borders and thus their citizens have higher standards of living than those that become garbage dumps).
  66. 2021 Tuesday D: We now learn that the Durham probe most likely will not lead to the prosecutions of anyone involved in the scandalous Trump-Russia Collusion scam.  What a shame.  People like James Comey, knuckle-dragging John Brennan, James Clapper, Sally Yates, and far too many more from the Obama administration are going to get a full pass.  Next, the White House faces criticism over seeking briefing questions in advance, folks, simply unheard of, yet that is what we learn.  It would be great if the White House could find someone blessed with a higher IQ than stuttering and stammering and um-umming Jen Psaki.  In nearly two weeks, she has demonstrated to millions of Americans that she is as fit for the job as is President Joe Biden.  Speaking of dangers for the United States, a new report says that the Chi-Coms have stolen the information of 80-percent of U.S. citizens.  Hell, the sons of bitches are trying to steal our biodata, too.  Time to give them a black eye and a bloody nose.  Chi-Com scum.
  67. 2021 Tuesday E: The U.S. Senate confirms Mayor Pete Buttigieg as the next secretary of the U.S. Department of Transportation.  Next, President Joe Biden signs three more executive orders today, all three dealing with Trump era immigration policies.   One order will be to address the flow of illegals from Central America to the United States while another will end Trump’s restrictions on the numbers of green cards handed out to illegals.  Another will officially establish a commission to reunite families and to end family separations at the border.  Elsewhere, Newsmax reports that California crackpot Congresswoman “Gasoline Maxine” Waters has given her daughter more than $1 million of campaign funds.   (Note- the name “Gasoline Maxine” comes from the GOP opponent she faced in November 2020, U.S. military veteran Joe Collins).  Meanwhile, in a move that is angering millions of Republicans, already unpopular Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY, is blasting House Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA, while defending highly disliked Congresswoman Liz Cheney, R-WY.  As long as Mitch remains in power, millions of Republicans are choosing NOT to donate their dwindling dollars to this dinosaur party.  Good going there, Mitch.
  68. 2021 Tuesday F: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 103,572,661 confirmed cases, +482,437, 2,243,638, confirmed deaths, +12,809, and 57,502,710 confirmed recoveries, +342,692.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 26,524,218 confirmed cases, up 83,699 from yesterday’s reporting, 447,715 confirmed deaths, UP 1,448, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries with NO UPDATES NOW in seven days.  This tells us the Biden administration does not want them reported. 
  69. 2021 Tuesday G: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,341,197 confirmed cases, 41,344 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,070 confirmed cases, 410 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 317,703 confirmed cases, 4,404 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Texas: currently, they have 2,415,490 confirmed cases, 37,405 confirmed deaths, and 1,993,705 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 652,246 confirmed cases, 4,816 confirmed deaths, and 573,208 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other country- India: they have 10,778,031 confirmed cases of the Beijing Bug, 154,629 confirmed deaths, and 10,461,230 confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, Joe Biden says next week, retail pharmacies will begin giving Chi-Vi immunizations.    In the Empire State, Andrew “Killer” Cuomo underreported the deaths of senior citizens in nursing homes by a much as 50-percent.  Health officials in New York City and across his state are resigning in disgust over this POS criminal mishandling of the Kung Flu crisis.
  70. 2021 Tuesday H:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,687.48 UP 475.57 points (+1.57%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,612.78, UP 209.38 points (+1.56%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,826.31, UP 52.45 points (+1.39%).  The price of GOLD is $1,837.60 per troy oz., +4.20 (+0.23%) while the price of SILVER is $26.66 per troy ounce, +0.258 (+0.98%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,100.70 per troy oz, +4.70 (+0.43%) while the price of COPPER is $3.52 per pound, -0.002 (-0.06%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,241.70 per troy oz, +33.30 (+1.51%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $55.04 per barrel, +0.28 (+0.51%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Iranian Rial equals 42,000.00 (same as last week).  That’s what a terrorism-based economy gets you.  Next, here is the conversion for one U.S. dollar and Bitcoin: 0.000028.
  71. 2021 Tuesday I: The Chi-Com foreign ministry is excited about ‘working with the Joe Biden administration moving forward’ but according to Beijing, the U.S. ‘must respect the One-China Policy in which the Chi-Coms are the legitimate government of Taiwan and that any talk of Taiwan becoming an independent country or of receiving diplomatic recognition from the U.S. as free and independent is wrong and cannot happen.’  President Donald J. Trump was extremely friendly with Taipei and we believe that IF the world does not recognize Taiwan as its own country, then the Two-China Policy must be restored and Taiwan must return to being the ONLY China in the U.N. and on the U.N. Security Council.  Of course, this won’t win us any friends in mainland China but hey- it is what it is.   We know they love ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden.  Why wouldn’t they?  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, we now know they used SolarWinds as an entry point to hack into the U.S. government’s payroll system via the implantation of spyware in the system.  Wow.  What will “Pro-China Joe” do about this?
  72. 2021 Tuesday J: The U.S. Senate confirmed Alejandro Mayorkas as the next head of the Department of Homeland Security.  Speaking of his confirmation, Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, has voted “NO” on six of Joe Biden’s Cabinet picks.   Meanwhile, Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida has declared WAR on the BIG TECH CARTEL within the borders of his state.  Go for it!  Elsewhere, it appears that slow-witted bumbling and stumbling White House press secretary Jen Psaki dismissed the validity of the U.S. Space Force in a White House press conference.   Congressman Mike Rogers of Alabama demanded an immediate apology from the lackluster spokesperson for feeble old Joe Biden.  You won’t get it, congressman.  Speaking of losers, 10 counties in Wyoming have now voted to censure the state’s sole member of the House, Congresswoman Liz Cheney, R-Wyoming. 
  73. 2021 Tuesday K: A Moscow (kangaroo) court sentences Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny to more than two years in prison on purported ‘embezzlement” and ‘corruption charges.’  Currently the Russian government has arrested between 5,000 and 10,000 pro-Navalny protesters, many of whom are still in jail while thousands more are out in the streets demanding his release and an end to Vladimir Putin.   Russia has dismissed E.U. and U.S. criticisms over their handling of Navalny and warns them of ‘interfering in its domestic affairs.’  Elsewhere, former Texas governor and secretary of energy Rick Perry blasts ‘global climate czar’ John F. Kerry for the trail of emissions his private jet leaves around the world.   Speaking of losers like Mr. Kerry, California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom’s approval numbers continue falling.  Californians expect that Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s nephew will be removed from office next month.   Regarding the House speaker, she is beefing up security for her fellow Democrat House members when they travel.
  74. 2021 Tuesday L: Here are the results for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1630 with a jackpot of $42 million: 13, 37, 38, 40, 67, and Mega 10.  Out of 77,680 winning tickets, the highest winners in California were FOUR people who had FOUR plus the MEGA for a prize of $8,746 apiece.
  75. 2021 Tuesday M: As Democrats continue preparing for their kangaroo impeachment court on Monday, February 8, the one in which, they seek to remove a president already out of office, the Trump legal team says their client was merely expressing his First Amendment rights.  No where did he or anyone in his administration call for violence whereas most every elected Democrat has either cheered violence on or has bailed out violent mob members and put them back onto the streets.   Speaking of human fecal matter, it has become apparent that Iran is working hard underground in their development of nuclear materials with which to make bombs and fast.  Time for someone to nuke the living hell out of these Iranian scumbags.   Meanwhile, the once-proud Pentagon is purging members of its defense policy board who were Trump appointees.  It is beginning to appear that we do have a shadow military junta in this country.

Trump ‘might do in the days remaining to him.’  Could he release all sorts of data on “Pro-China Joe” Biden, the Democrat leadership, and others and their close ties to the Chi-Coms?  Hence why the Dems are urging Vice President Mike Pence to commune with the Cabinet (members leaving as we speak) so they can use the 25th Amendment to remove the 45th president (Pence won’t) or why they are proclaiming they are going to launch a second impeachment against President Trump in the less than two weeks remaining in his term.  In the same vein, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi spoke to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff- General Mark A.

  64. 2021 Friday B:  Extreme intellect LeBron James says, “We live in two Americas.”  Yes, indeed, and you, you big POS, live in the upper crust one.  STFU.  Note of interest: we learned late last night that Marxist Chicago ‘Priest’ Father Michael Pfleger friend of Barack Hussein Obama- is stepping down from the priesthood seeing as how there are now allegations of child sexual abuse against him.  Oh, how the mighty fall.  On a humorous note, Senator Lindsey Graham, RINO Republican from South Carolina, receives loads of catcalls and negative rhetoric as he tries to head to his plane at Reagan International Airport.   About flipping time!  Finally, we learn that chief of staff to Vice President Mike Pence- Mark Strong- is the one who urged the VP not to fight the certification of the 2020 Presidential Election.  He is now barred from entering the White House grounds.  Remember that name: Mark Strong.  He hopes both he and VP Pence will have bought a future in mainstream Washington, D.C. politics.  (Note- President Trump is not going to attend the Biden-Harris inauguration but Mr. Pence will.  Florida Senator Rick Scott is also encouraging the 45th president to attend.  WHY?).  Speaking of maggots- former chief of staff General John Kelly, U.S. Army Ret., says he ‘would vote to remove Trump.’

  66. 2021 Friday D: The U.S. has lost 140,000 jobs, the first monthly loss since the spring when government told us ‘we need to shut everything down for two weeks so we can flatten the curve.’  Result: a destroyed economy.  Elsewhere, Dodgers’ longtime player and manager Tommy Lasorda dead at age 93.  God bless you, Tommy!  Thank you for 1988!  Meanwhile, Elon Musk becomes the richest man in the world with $195 billion which is 10 billion more than Amazon.com owner Jeff Bezos.  Finally, Georgia U.S. Senator David Perdue follows in the footsteps of fellow Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler and concedes to his opponent, Sinophile and far-left-left-left Democrat Jon Ossoff.  It is over and it is done.
  67. 2021 Friday E: Former Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, U.S. Army Ret., and former national security adviser finds himself banned from Twitter.  U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the “U.S. is not a banana republic.” Elsewhere, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau blasts Trump for ‘inciting an assault on democracy.’ Mind your own business, twerp.  Meanwhile, the Rupert Murdoch empire calls for Trump to go but seeks to cling to the Trump base.  Finally, a report says that pipe bombs delivered to the RNC and the DNC contained timing devices.

  59. 2017 Saturday: The Trump transition team accuses Robert S. Mueller of illegally obtaining campaign emails.  The Mueller investigation is obtaining ‘evidence of collusion between President Donald J. Trump and Vladimir Putin in unlawful ways.’  Since the evidence does not exist, it would suggest that the special counsel is manufacturing his own evidence.
  60. 2018 Sunday: With the threat of a partial government shutdown looming, the White House dug in on its demand for $5 billion to build a border wall as congressional Democrats stood firm against it.  Meanwhile, over increasing scandals, U.S. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke announces he is going to step down from his position.
  61. 2019 Monday: Congressional Democrats continued trying to find their collective balls to go into the House Rules Committee the next day so they could hammer out the rules for the impeachment trial of President Donald J. Trump.    Meanwhile, Democrats running for the nomination of their party are begging DNC Chair Tom Perez to change the rules for inclusion for the January and February debates.  The rules’ demand for polling and donation numbers to meet certain criteria is preventing many of them from being able to participate.  
  62. 2020 Wednesday: Texas wants to become the home of the U.S. Space Force Command.  Next, President Donald J. Trump doubles down on his claims of FRAUD in the 2020 Presidential Election which are becoming clearer and clearer by the day.  He says, “Bad things happened in the 2020 Presidential Election” and must be addressed.  He also told Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY, that it’s ‘too soon to give up on the election’ even as Mitch and his leadership are urging their fellow GOP senators NOT to contest the election in early January.  However, in January 2017, House Democrats interrupted the proceedings no less than ELEVEN times in their bid to stop Trump from becoming the 45th president and to secure the election for Hillary Rodham Clinton.
  63. 2020 Wednesday A:  The American Civil Liberties Union calls for a release of half of ALL inmates in U.S. prisons and jails because of the Chi-Vi threat.  They probably want all illegal aliens released, too.  Let’s deport them ASAP.  Meanwhile, federal prosecutors indict Canadian pervert Peter Nygard, a fashion designer, on multiple charges of sex-trafficking.  Hmmm, seems like we have a junior Jeffrey Epstein here.
  64. 2020 Wednesday B: The U.S. Senate Homeland Security Committee chaired by Ron Johnson, R-WI, and ranking member, Sen. Gary Peters (who was beaten by John James in November but who maintains his seat thanks to rampant voter fraud in his state), D-MI.  Witness Christopher Krebs, recently fired by President Trump still maintains ‘no signs of foreign interference in the election’ but that ‘fraud is a criminal matter.’  He also states that ‘rumor control is extremely important.’   Chairman Ron Johnson says the “GOP is not peddling Russian disinformation’ and tells his colleague Senator Peters ‘to stop lying, that all he does is lie and to stop spreading Russian disinformation, himself.’  Amen.  Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, then asks a question regarding ‘if non-legislators changing election laws without the involvement of state legislators is okay’ which everyone with half-a-brain or more knows is NOT.
  65. 2020 Wednesday C: Regarding the Senate Homeland Security Committee meeting on the rampant voter fraud that occurred in the 2020 Presidential and Senatorial elections, Christopher Krebs says it’s ‘important to use paper ballots so there is a paper trail which would have provided the necessary evidence as to whether there was cheating or there was not.’  Amen to that, too. We also learn that Pennsylvania was among the most corrupt states with more dead people, more illegal aliens, more multiple voters, more made-up voters, and more underage voters than anywhere else in the country.  Send Gov. Wolf to prison. 
  66. 2020 Wednesday D: In the same Senate committee hearings as outlined in the previous two points, Senator James Lankford, R-OK, says back in 2016, ’32-percent of the American people believed that Vladimir Putin and the Russkies interfered in the U.S. Presidential Election to help Donald Trump and to hurt Hillary Rodham Clinton.  We did hearings then so what is wrong with holding hearings now, especially when 75 million plus Americans voted for Donald Trump’ and as Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, says ‘are not going to just go away no matter how much Democrats want them to.’  Amen to that, too.  In 2016, Dems weren’t going to move on whereas NOW, they want everyone to move on and to embrace “Pro-China Joe” Biden and “Kooky Kamala” Harris as our next president and vice president.  F**k them.
  67. 2020 Wednesday E: Senator James Lankford, R-OK, also says that his state as were numerous others done with vote counting on Election Night as the country always has but look in amazement at other states STILL counting votes more than two weeks after Election Day and stating, ‘we don’t know how many ballots are left to be counted.’  Senator Lankford also points out to the Eric system- the Electronic Voter Information Center used by 30 states to monitor if people are voting more than once or in a series of places.  All states should be using this.  Senator Lankford also says that in HIS state, voter fraudsters are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law while in states with rampant voter fraud like Nevada has yet to punish anyone even with 42,000 dead voters having voted.  The Trump campaign witness and adviser Jesse Binall concurred that NO one has faced prosecution in the Silver State.
  68. 2020 Wednesday F: Regarding the election, Wisconsin Election Commission Director Meagan Wolfe calls for legislation for election reform in her corrupt state due to widespread irregularities across her state.  Meanwhile, President Trump wants a special counsel appointed to investigate Hunter Biden and perhaps his father.  Elsewhere, we learn that the Senate races in Georgia are tied- David Perdue v. Jon Ossoff and Kelly Loeffler v. Islamist ‘Reverend’ Raphael Warnock.  Mitch: we would be inclined to donate more cash to help the GOP candidates if you would stand with President Trump, you RINO POS.  Meanwhile, Cardinal Raymond Leo Burke says that ‘the Democrats are seeking a GREAT RESET in the United States with which to force Marxism down our throats.
  69. 2020 Wednesday G: National security adviser Robert O’Brien cuts his European trip short to rush home to deal with the ongoing Russian-Chi-Com-and-other foreign intel agents hacking into the U.S. federal government as well as taking down YouTube, Gmail, and Google.  Meanwhile, White House counsel urged President Trump not to fire POS FBI Director Christopher Wray.   Finally, Ken Starr will square off with Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg in a Texas court regarding Facebook’s interference in the 2020 Elections and the vast amounts of cash Zuckerberg dropped on various entities in the election ostensibly to help them in their efforts to (1) steal the elections and (2) to censor information favorable to President Trump and the GOP.  Send this punk to prison.  Speaking of punks, it’s official, “Pro-China Joe” Biden names Mayor Pete Buttigieg to be his secretary of Transportation.   Princess, uh, Mayor Pete will become the first openly gay person to head a Cabinet position. 
  70. 2020 Wednesday H: In other news, scientists suggest that kangaroos can learn to communicate with human beings.  We believe every creature on Earth is evolving but evolution is extremely slow so no one truly notices it.  Next, Major League Baseball finally does something it should have done decades ago and that is to elevate the Negro Leagues to MLB status so all records and information will become a part of MLB history.  God bless you!  Elsewhere, feel-good liberal Dodge City, Kansas, Mayor Joyce Warshaw resigns her post after claiming she has received ‘so much email and mail threatening her life over her support of a comprehensive mask mandate.’  Wah, wah, wah, STFU.   In other news, the dictator of Turkey- Tayyip Recep Erdogan calls sanctions emplaced upon his country because it bought a Russian defense system to be an ‘attack on his nation.’  Dude, you need to shut up and GO.
  71. 2020 Wednesday I: Internal documents released on the fly from the World Health Organization, the corrupt organization in the pocket of wannabe global dictator Xi Jinping, show that their distribution plan for release of the Wuhan Virus vaccine are doomed to fail.  Elsewhere, that ignoramus Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Sandy Cortez, aka Baby Evita, aka AOC, aka “The Fly,” says ‘both Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer need to go.  NOW.’
  72. 2020 Wednesday J: Here are the latest stats for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, straight out of Wuhan, China: 74,087,090 confirmed cases, UP by 1,865,456 cases, 1,646,687 confirmed deaths, UP by 34,673 deaths, and 41,893,773 confirmed recoveries, DOWN by 5,324,462 recoveries from yesterday’s figures- curious.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 16,961,262 confirmed cases, UP by 273,102 new cases, 308,762 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,280 new deaths, and 7,688,057 confirmed recoveries, UP by 203,304 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt POSs).  Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 360,630 confirmed cases, 3,014 confirmed deaths, and 338,784 confirmed recoveries.
  73. 2020 Wednesday K: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 1,671,081 confirmed cases, 21,481 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 19,590 confirmed cases, 278 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION OF confirmed recoveries anymore- what is up with YOU, Gov. Ige, you Democrat hack.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 212,488 confirmed cases, 3,084 confirmed deaths, but like California, the gorilla-faced governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, Florida: 1,155,355 confirmed number of cases, 20,480 confirmed deaths, and sadly, no mention of the confirmed number of recoveries- thank you.   Speaking of the Yellow Fever 2020, a healthcare worker in Alaska was given the vaccine injection and immediately began having harsh reactions to the drug and had to be placed into the hospital.
  74. 2020 Wednesday L:  2020 Wednesday E: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,154.54, DOWN 44.77 points (-0.15%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,658.19, UP 63.13 points (+0.50%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,701.17, UP 6.55 points (+0.18%).  The price of GOLD is $1,867.30 per troy oz., +8.20 (+0.24%) while the price of SILVER is $25.44 per troy ounce, +0.393 (+1.57%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,040.00 per troy oz, +4.60 (+0.44%) while the price of COPPER is $3.56 per pound, +0.005 (+0.14%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,348.20 per troy oz, +24.20 (+1.04%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $47.86 per barrel, +0.04 (+0.08%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.53 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.86.
  75. 2020 Wednesday M: Stay tuned for tonight’s Super Lotto #3517 Draw with a $14 million jackpot and the Powerball #803 Draw with $277 million up for grabs.  Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto first: 04, 06, 11, 12, 17, and Mega 09.  Out of 97,848 winning tickets, the highest winners were 26 people who had four numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $604 apiece.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball: 04, 23, 37, 61, 67, and Powerball 07.  Out of 95,182 winning tickets, the highest winners were 3 people who had four numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $15,585 apiece. 
  76. 2020 Wednesday N: Final news for the night: Fosun Pharma seeks to buy 100 million does of Biontech’s Chi-Vi vaccine for shipment to mainland communist China.   Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Senator Tom Cotton, R-Arkansas, is pushing a bill designed to punish Beijing for their annual $1 billion industry of forced organ harvesting from prisoners and members of religious groups.  No wonder the communists in Beijing HATE Senator Cotton.  The Stop Force Organs Harvesting Act would put the Chinese Communist Party thugs on notice that they must stop this egregious human rights abuse.  Elsewhere, Vice President Mike Pence will take the Beijing Bat Flu vaccine on live TV at the White House.  Particulars to come.  Finally, a federal court tells Ohio they cannot block trannys seeking to change their birth certificates to reflect their ‘identities.’
  77. 2020 Wednesday O:  Friends, we know the Chi-Coms, their lackeys Canada, Russia, Iran, Venezuela, Cuba, and other assorted Third World s-hole countries- as well as their stooges in the Democratic Party- are up to no-good.  Stick around to discover crimes they’ve committed today…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The J. Geils Band released their second album, “The Morning After,” on October 02, 1971.  These guys were known for their amazing live shows which carried over to their studio albums.  Although the band still did notable blues rock covers, they were writing more of their material although “Looking for a Love” was not an original.  The live version of this tune which would appear on their next album put them over the top as far as national fame goes.  The band featured the same sextet which it would be until their breakup in the 1960s.  We encourage everyone to seek this album out so you can consider adding it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

  52. 2019: In the lowest scoring super bowl of all time, Super Bowl LIII, the New England Patriots defense stifled the high-scoring Los Angeles Rams by a final score of 13-3.

  53. 2020: Much to the shock of his radio listeners, Rush Limbaugh announced that his doctors had diagnosed him with advanced lung cancer.  He promises to soldier on and we certainly hope that he can.  We are rooting for you, Big Guy, but please, give up the stogies.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

 

 

#TT001.1c Cellophane #3 12-25-2019 (400)

The Troggs returned with No. 3, “Cellophane,” on March 08, 1967, once again, another powerful rocker to be sure. The band featured Reg Presley (vocals), Chris Britton (guitars/backing vocals), Pete Staples (bass/backing vocals), and Ronnie Bond (drums). This band was red hot in its day and the cover tunes mixed with some originals were absolutely amazing. One of the great unsung bands of its time when one considers the Beatles, the Yardbirds, the Stones, the Kinks, the Who, the Hollies, Them, and the Zombies, the Troggs should be right up there with them in that pantheon of rock music greats. Please, use the link and visit Amazon.com so you can pick it up in the format, the condition, and the price that works best for you- you will be glad you did.
