Elsewhere, at Dien Bien Phu, heavy fighting at Huguette 6 ends near dawn with the Viet Minh victorious. The cost is high for both sides, the French are having difficulty replacing their losses while the People’s Army is scraping the bottom of the barrel in other parts of the country and bringing in teenagers to continue the fight. There is hope among the French leadership that the U.S. will begin flying air missions to help them…

  47. 2005 Monday: In the Papal Conclave of 2005, senior cardinals signal no new pope has been chosen by sending up black smoke, the traditional method of signaling no decision.  When white smoke goes up, they have made their choice and will inform the world.  We will await the decision.

  49. 2007 Wednesday: People across the United States are protesting gun crimes what with the massacre at Virginia Tech earlier in the week.  Police announce their suspect is a Korean student named 23-year-old Cho Seung-Hui as the mass murderer.  The POS used two handguns to kill more people in 10 minutes than ever before.  Wow. 
  50. 2008 Friday: Ahead of trade talks between the United States and South Korea, the latter agrees to open its markets to U.S. beef from the former.  (Note- we find it amazing that we have all these allies who won’t take our goods.  What’s up with that?)

  52. 2010 Sunday: President of Iran Mahmud Ahmadinejad calls for ‘alien troops’ to leave and suggests that the regional nations should settle things among themselves.  Tehran wants NO U.S. or other troops anywhere in the Middle East believing that Iran should be the dominant power in the region.
  53. 2011 Monday: Things continue getting out of hand in Syria.  In the city of Homs, anti-government protesters are angrier than ever after the Syrian military opened fire on people protesting the Bashar al-Assad regime.  A military officer who refused to fire on protesters undergoes execution himself.   Anti-Bashar al-Assad protesters are getting whacked all over the country.
  54. 2012 Wednesday: The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission together complete rules to limit which firms are required to register with either or both agencies as ‘swap dealers.’  Elsewhere, the wimpified U.S. military is condemning photos of U.S. servicemen posing with the corpses of mangled suicide bombers.  At least two such incidents occurred.  (Note- they should have seen photos from the Vietnam War.  It was what it was).
  55. 2013 Thursday: Kepler-62e and Kepler-62f, two planets resembling planet Earth are discovered revolving around the star Kepler-62 in the habitable zone, an area around the stars whose atmospheric pressure can support liquid water at the surface.   Elsewhere, President Barack Obama visits the city of Boston.  Meanwhile, as a condition of talking to the Obama administration, North Korea demands that all UN-imposed sanctions on their country be lifted or screw off.
  56. 2014 Friday: About 80 miles northwest of the resort town of Acapulco, Mexico, a 7.2-magnitude earthquake hits but the authorities report only minimal damage.  Elsewhere, in the Ukrainian city of Donetsk, pro-Russian thugs holding government buildings refuse to surrender them to Ukrainian authorities threatening an international incident.  Kiev needs to send in some worse thugs than the Russian scum holding them and evict them right into a prison cell.  This is what happens when an American president- Bill Clinton- promised the Ukrainians that ‘America would come to their defense if they would only surrender their nuclear weapons.’  This mess occurred shortly after the fall of the Soviet Union.
  57. 2015 Saturday: In Nigeria, 17 people die from a mystery disease within 24 hours of the onset of symptoms.  Tests show that the disease is not viral; however, currently, there is no identification.  Elsewhere, the Rock-and-Roll Hall of Fame inducts Ringo Starr[vi] (finally!), the Paul Butterfield Blues Band[vii] (finally!), Joan Jett and the Blackhearts[viii] (finally!), Stevie Ray Vaughn and Double Trouble[ix] (guy’s been dead quite a while), Green Day[x], Bill Withers[xi], Lou Reed[xii] (finally), and the Five Royals.
  58. 2016 Monday: U.S. Secretary of Defense Ash Carter arrives in Baghdad and informs his counterparts that in an effort to defeat ISIS, the U.S. will be sending more troops to help Iraqi troops repel the murderous thugs.  Elsewhere, in the eastern end of the Mediterranean Sea, a migrant boat off the coast of Egypt, overloaded with Somali immigrants bound for Italy capsizes and at least 400 of the travelers drown.
  59. 2017 Tuesday: After a racist, anti-white gunman goes on a shooting rampage in downtown Fresno, California, law enforcement catches up with the murderous POS charging him with three murders as well as one or two others he committed several days prior to these crimes.   SHOOT him.   Meanwhile, President Trump visits Kenosha, Wisconsin, and signs an executive order with which to strengthen U.S. workers as opposed to foreign workers as well as to examine the number of H-1B visa handed out by the U.S. every year so BIG TECH can avoid hiring American workers in place of low cost foreign workers. 
  60. 2018 Wednesday: In Managua, Nicaragua, as protesters march protesting cuts to social programs by the Sandinista government, pro-government gangs take to the streets and begin beating the living bejezzus out of them.  Such is the ‘communist way.’   Elsewhere as more information arises from Israeli air strikes into neighboring Syria appears, we learn that their targets were Iranian missile systems with which to target Israeli aircraft.  Well, the Iranians will have to start over…
  61. 2019 Thursday: Attorney General William “Bill” Barr releases a redacted version of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s findings on whether then candidate Donald J. Trump conspired with the Russkies to win the 2016 Presidential Election.  The findings found NO trace of any collusion between Vladimir Putin and candidate Trump but also did not entirely clear President Trump of other ‘alleged’ or ‘suspected wrongdoings.’  Foaming-at-the-mouth Democrats were screaming, “See!  See!  The report did not say Trump didn’t collude; no, it only said no evidence could be uncovered.’  Ah, gee whiz, and so it goes…
  62. 2020 Saturday:  The COVID-19 Virus Crisis continues taking lives and ruining economies around the globe.  Many speculate that the Chinese- allied with the Democrats- set this debacle upon the world.  Rather funny how it sprang up in the death throes of impeachment.  Thank you, communist China, thank you, Democratic Party.  Around the globe, we have 2,310,572 confirmed cases of this horrible disease, 158,691 confirmed deaths, and 590,682 confirmed recoveries. 
    The United States claims 739,988 confirmed cases what with 38,928 confirmed fatalities but 66,357 confirmed recoveries.  Yet Democratic governors such as Gretchen Whitmer and the KKK governor of Virginia, continue locking down their states as though they are communists themselves.  One can only wonder why?  Meanwhile, our ‘friends,’ the People’s Republic of China claim 88,302 confirmed cases, 4,632 confirmed deaths, and 82,589 confirmed recoveries   
  63. 2021 Sunday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 141,015,440 confirmed cases, +932,847, 3,014,805  confirmed deaths, +12,651, and 80,500,382 confirmed recoveries, +659,474.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,867,364 confirmed cases, UP 102,620 from yesterday’s reporting, 572,627 confirmed deaths, UP 1,163, and 119,031,290 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[xiii] 
  64. 2021 Sunday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 247,359 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.   In other COVID-19 news, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says it’s ‘unlikely that the J & J Chi-Vi vaccine will be sidelined for good.’  We aren’t going to take that crap so you may as well send it to the Chi-Coms, the Iranians, or some other crap-hole country.  Oh, Dr. Fauci also says ‘guns are a health issues.’  No kidding- get shot by one and you have a problem but then again, so are knives and sledgehammers if misused.
  65. 2021 Sunday B: COVID-19 STATISTICS in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,716,603 confirmed cases, 60,949 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,168,901 confirmed cases, 34,439 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,606 confirmed cases, 474 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 387,312 confirmed cases, 5,427 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Nevada, the home of fraudulent 2020 Election results: they have 310,239 confirmed cases, 5,365 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[xiv] 
  66. 2021 Sunday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 837,047 confirmed cases, 6,338 confirmed deaths, and 828,235 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one non-country- the West Bank, long a part of Israel: 279,273 cases of the virus, 2,983 confirmed deaths and 245,293 confirmed recoveries.[xv]  
  67. 2021 Sunday D: U.S. DOLLAR CONVERSIONS- Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.52 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.92.     In Haitian Gourde, one greenback equals 81.80 and in Honduran Lempira, a buck equals 23.98.[xvi]
  68. 2021 Sunday E: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE FOUR STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.968 per gallon, $2.826 in Florida, $3.745 in Hawaii, and $3.371 in Washington state.[xvii]    Let’s look at one other location- Kansas: $2.676.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,186,291,746,801 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]
  69. 2021 Sunday F: GUNS-GUNS-GUNS- in the era of the FALSE PRESIDENT- Joe Biden- gun crimes continue unabated what a shooting at a bar in Kenosha, Wisconsin, early this morning that killed three and injured another three.  By midday, law enforcement had located a person of interest in this mass shooting.  Meanwhile, another mass shooting occurred in an Austin, Texas, apartment complex when an unknown shooter shot and killed three people and then vanished into thin air.  Police are going door to door searching for the scumbag involved in this crime.  Already, it would appear that more mass shootings have occurred under the Biden regime than in the entire Trump presidency.  Are people this upset with a phony president in the White House?  Are they upset over the phony president’s plans to strip them of their guns that they are pouring out of the woodwork like the cockroaches they are taking care of business before they are forced to mete out justice and/or punishment via baseball bats and meat cleavers?  What the hell is going on?[xix] 
  70. 2021 Sunday G: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE- Joe Biden plans to release 400 illegal alien families with their brats into the interior of the country per day by June 2021.  We are not going to provide care for this human refuse, Joe.  Let ‘em die in the streets.  Next, a Texas illegal alien holding pen for young girls gets shut down after a volunteer work dies under mysterious circumstances.   Meanwhile, a mumbling, stumbling phony president, Joe Biden, mutters that he has no numbers regarding refugees he is going to resettle in the United States but is looking at 60,000 this year and another 100,000 per year thereafter.  Thank you, f**king Joe.
  71. 2021 Sunday H: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS I- Prime Minister Scott Morrison and the Australian government says they are in no hurry to reopen their borders that have been closed thanks to COVID-19.  Next, the Czech Republic expels Russian foreign embassy staff over link to alleged 2014 sabotage carried out by the Russkies that blew up a Czech ammo dump.  Meanwhile, we learn that the Chi-Coms are ecstatic over the weakness displayed by both senile Joe Biden and a feeble Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga.  Taiwan, we’re coming for you.   Moving on, the GOP is demanding a stronger show of force as the Russian buildup along the Ukrainian border continues.  Invasion coming here soon, too.  We expect the Chi-Coms, the Russians, the Iranians, and others are going to move simultaneously and Joe Biden will be left playing pocket pool on the sidelines.  Speaking of Joe Biden’s impotency, former DNI John Ratcliffe says ‘America’s adversaries are taking advantage of Joe Biden’s extremely evident weakness.’ 
  72. 2021 Sunday I:  FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS II- President Donald J. Trump says, ‘it’s a positive and wonderful thing to be getting out of Afghanistan but is critical of the timeline of the withdrawal.’  He negotiated the U.S. departure by May 1, 2021 and Joe Biden has extended it to September 11, 2001.  Here is what we think: we think it’s a ploy by the Bidenistas to cause the Taliban to begin launching major attacks on U.S. positions and personnel so the United States can turn around and say, “Oh, woe, we have to remain in the s***hole country for another 4-8 years so we can continue profiting from the death and destruction.”  There is NO reason to remain in Afghanistan, folks.   Elsewhere, the Mossad announces that ‘yes, indeed, the Biden regime is working at getting back into the FAILED Iran nuclear program.’  Thanks for telling us this but we already knew this POS Joe Biden has no original ideas of his own.  Speaking of the Iranian fecal matter, they fired a barrage of rockets into a base utilized by U.S. contractors in Iraq.  Let’s light Tehran up!  Kill ‘em all!
  73. 2021 Sunday J: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS III- Joe Biden’s National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan claims that his boss, the incredibly fuddled Joe Biden is taking a ‘tough stance’ on Vladimir Putin’s Russia over its ongoing mistreatment of Putin critic Alexei Navalny.  Why Navalny returned to Russia is beyond us but hey, the Russians are doing horrible crap to the imprisoned anti-Putin which is not right but Joe Biden is going to do NOTHING about anything.   Elsewhere, Joe Biden’s climate czar, the incredibly phony John F. “Lurch” Kerry is ignoring South Korea’s complaints about Japan’s releasing of toxic water from its shuttered Fukushima nuclear power plant into the ocean. 
  74. 2021 Sunday K: POLITICAL NEWS I- Former President Donald J. Trump ambassador to Denmark Carla Sands is considering a run for Senator Pat Toomey’s seat in Pennsylvania.   Next, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says that Joe Biden unlike President Franklin Delano Roosevelt is in a good position to pack the U.S. Supreme Court.   Many in the GOP are confident that expanding the U.S. Supreme Court will be detrimental to the Democrats in 2022 and again in 2024.  Big flipping deal, the damage will be done and with tens of millions new illegal alien voters, it won’t matter.  Why are you people so obstinately stupid?   Speaking of other stupidity, new SEC Chairman Gary Gensler plans to increase rules and regulations (such as the ones President Donald J. Trump eradicated) so he can help make Joe Biden’s Green New Deal a reality.  Wow.  Going to be great.
  75. 2021 Sunday L: POLITICAL NEWS II- The Grand Old Party in the Peach State has censured not only Governor Brian Kemp, RINO, and others among statewide leadership over their failure to adequately address President Donald J. Trump’s concerns over election fraud.  Speaking of Governor Kemp, former Democrat-turned-Republican Vernon Jones announced yesterday that he is going to primary Gov. Kemp.  Poor Governor Kemp, he should have stood by President Trump as should have Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, another RINO POS.  We hope they lose in next year’s primaries.   Meanwhile, Congressman Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, criticizes befuddled old Joe Biden’s work schedule, says that he is ‘not working hard enough like a purported U.S. president.’  Elsewhere, we learn today that the National Security Agency- the NSA- is targeting U.S. Navy officers who are pro-Trump instead of targeting foreign enemies abroad.  Wow.  How sad.  Are we beginning to see the beginning of America’s first Soviet-style purge of military officers?  Wow.   Finally, at a Lincoln Day fundraiser in Florida, President Donald J. Trump received a thunderous standing ovation from hundreds of assembled guests.  “Miss him yet?”  You better believe we all do.
  76. 2021 Sunday M: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I- Elon Musk beats out Jeff Bezos and Amazon getting a $3 billion NASA contract with which to return Americans to the moon. Moving on, a Rasmussen poll says that 54-percent of likely American voters disapprove of what the Democrat-controlled Congress is doing.  We bet it’s way higher than that.   Another poll shows that since the Democrats stole the 2020 Presidential Election, CNN’s ratings have plummeted by 54-percent.  Equally hateful MSNBC also has seen severe losses in viewership.  Next, an Antifa watchdog group has released the mugshots of all the Black Lives Matter and Antifa thugs and punks arrested in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, for the world to see.  Most of them are spoiled white punks which leads us to reiterate what we have said before: when two generations of young people are spared the belt across their bare asses, this is what you end up with- punks.   Speaking of Brooklyn Center, riots continue in that city as well as in other cities across the nation as leftist scumbags prepare for the verdict in the murder trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin.   Finally, Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, says the lawsuit the state has on Joe Biden will force the feeble old fool to ‘enforce the law’ instead of avoiding it.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Temple of Rock, the ongoing project by Michael Schenker continues rocking forward.  Joining the smoking hot guitarist from the Fatherland are bassist Francis Buchholz, Michael Voss (vocals), Herman Rarebell (drums), and Wayne Findlay (keyboards).  The resulting effort produced “Spirit on a Mission,” which hit record store shelves on October 31, 2014.  One thing is for sure and that is you cannot keep good German rockers down as these guys have the fire in their bellies and it’s stoked up white hot.  We hope you will rush out and seek this one out NOW so you can add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

ENDNOTES:


[i] This is the TRUE government of China, Nationalist China which is FREE China.  Although these people inhabit Taiwan, the former island of Formosa, they are the true owners of mainland China, too, and the sooner they reclaim their birthright, the sooner the world will heal.

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

[iii] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.

[iv] We promoted the music of the famed San Francisco, California, rock band, Moby Grape, on Monday, 09-April-2012 through Monday, 23-April-2012.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.

[v] As always, our main source is “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, Da Capo Press, 2004.

[vi] 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.

[vii] We hope to share the music of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band as well as Al Kooper sometime in the next 10-15 years.  We hope you will remain with us as loyal readers.

[viii] Not sure when we will begin celebrating the music of Joan Jett and the Blackhearts but when we do…you will be among the first to know.

[ix] As to when we will celebrate the life, times, and music of the late great Stevie Ray Vaughn and Double Trouble, we haven’t a clue so stay alert for the day we finally do.

[x] We doubt we will ever do the music of Green Day.

[xi] We hope to celebrate the music of Bill Withers one day.  Please stay alert for when that day arrives.  You will be glad you did.

[xii] We began promoting the music of the Velvet Underground starting on Tuesday, 18-March-2014 through Wednesday, 09-April-2014.  At the time we promoted this famous New York City rock band, we failed to share the music of the man himself, Lou Reed.  We hope to rectify that mistake when we return to promoting American bands again.  Thank you for your patience.

[xiii] Bing has returned to reporting update numbers (well, mostly).  Here is the link: (1) covid-19 u.s. and global statistics – Bing

[xiv]See previous.

[xv] We obtain our statistics for the coronavirus from: (1) covid-19 u.s. and global statistics – Bing

[xvi] (1) Currency Converter – Bing See this site for currency conversions.

[xvii] AAA Gas Prices– See this site for nationwide daily gasoline averages.

[xviii] U.S. National Debt Clock : Real Time (usdebtclock.org) See this site for the U.S. National Debt Clock.

[xix] Here’s another shooting we will lay at the feet of Joe Biden- the shooting in Laplace, Louisiana, yesterday at a child’s birthday party.  Six people were shot and injured there.  Is it not amazing how many gun crimes are occurring with Joe Biden in the White House?  By the time this POS is out of office (hopefully later this year), he will have set the record for mass shootings.

106. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, APRIL 16, 2021

W. 1944 Sunday: The Red Army continues rolling up German and Rumanian pockets around Yalta as the Soviets continue pushing the Axis troops out of their country. Although ill-supplied and devoid of hope, the Germans continue fighting for their lives because they are more afraid of the Fuhrer in Berlin than they are of their Russian enemies.

  15. 1917 Monday: Vladimir Ilyich Lenin arrived back from exile in Petrograd to join the Russian Revolution.   Kaiser Wilhelm II played his ‘secret weapon’ well: loaded aboard a closed train, Lenin and the Kaiser struck a deal- ‘we will send you back to Russia and when you take power, you take Russia out of the war.’  And so it occurred.  However, when the communists took power, every nation in Europe shunned them because they did not want the evil disease of Marxism spreading to their countries but for now, all was well.

  20. 1941 Wednesday: The Yugoslav government (or what’s left of it) is attempting to negotiate an end to the Axis invasion of their country.  The Yugoslav military was not prepared for the Blitzkrieg that fell atop them like a load of bricks.  Anger Adolf Hitler and you will pay the price.

  24. 1945 Monday: Allied troops begin entering the German city of Nuremburg during World War II.  Meanwhile the Red Army commenced the Battle of Berlin.  First, they would have to capture the outlying heights and then cut off the city.  German troops know that they cannot win this battle; however, they plan to bleed the Red Army dry of blood.  Finally, in the Baltic Sea, a Soviet submarine torpedoed and sank the MV Goya, a luxury liner the Nazis impressed into service to haul refugees and wounded soldiers from the Baltic republics in the face of an attacking Red Army; it is estimated that up to 7,000 peopled died in the attack.

Baruch said in a speech at the South Carolina statehouse, “Let us not be deceived—we are today in the midst of a Cold War.”  Elsewhere, future rock drummer with the British band, Uriah Heep[iii], 1971-1979 / 1981-2007, Lee Kerslake—is born in in Winton, Bournemouth, Hampshire, England, on this date.
  26. 1951 Monday: The British submarine Affray sinks in the English Channel resulting in the loss of 75 lives.
  27. 1954 Friday: The Battle of Dien Bien Phu continues, building in intensity.  Great pains are put into locating the enemy AA batteries so they can neutralize as many of them as possible which they do- at great cost in dwindling artillery ammunition.  The problem is, there are so many, taking out the ones they could cost them much-needed artillery ammo.  Meanwhile, Hanoi sends word that they are going to promote the leading officers by one rank.  Thus, Colonel Christian De Castries becomes Brigadier General De Castries while Lt. Colonel “Gars Pierre” Langlais and other lieutenant colonels move up to full bird colonel.  This is significant because it shows that leadership in Hanoi recognizes they are going to lose this fight…but not yet.[iv]
  28. 1962 Monday: Brazil nationalizes U.S. businesses.  Meanwhile, Walter Cronkite began anchoring the “CBS Evening News.”  Elsewhere, future U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is born in New York City, N.Y. on this date.  A Democrat, he would serve under Joe Biden from January 26, 2021 until?  Finally, New Orleans Archbishop Joseph Rummel excommunicated three local Roman Catholics for fighting racial integration of parochial schools.

  44. 2002 Tuesday: The Supreme Court overturned major parts of a 1996 child pornography law based on rights to freedom of speech.   Ashcroft v.

  45. 2003 Wednesday: The U.S. State Department announces a summit of the U.S., the People’s Republic of China, and North Korea will kowtow in Beijing over April 23-24, 2003, to discuss the paused North Korean nuclear program.  Of course, nothing will come of this but it looks good to the little people.
  46. 2004 Friday: The Human Rights Commission at the United Nations- such a stellar body with a distinguished track record (yeah, right) got a BIG HIGH-FIVE from the Chi-Coms when the commission smacked down a motion by the United States to condemn the Chi-Coms’ abysmal record on human rights.  Rice wine all around, folks.  Elsewhere, as the fight in Iraq goes from bad to worse, the U.S. military drops a 1,000-pound bomb near the Shiite town of Najaf.  Good going let’s make those people love us even more there, President George W. Bush.

  50. 2008 Wednesday: The United States Supreme Court upholds lethal injection as a means of capital punishment.  Challenges over it being ‘cruel and unusual punishment’ were pushed aside as folks, you want to use Old Sparky, the gas chamber, the gallows, what- we need some way with which to eliminate condemned murderers.
  51. 2009 Thursday: Bolivian police kill three foreigners and arrest two others, men whom they claim had come to their country to assassinate their leader, communists President Evo Morales and Vice President Alvaro Garcia Linera.  Sounds like a crock of crap to us.

  53. 2011 Saturday: In Egypt, the court orders the former ruling National Democratic Party of Hosni Mubarak be dissolved.  Next, in Cuba, President Raul Castro proposes ‘term limits’ for ‘elected officials.’  Come on, Raul, Cuba is a communist s**thole and things such as ‘term limits’ and ‘elections’ are complete shams, meant only for foreign consumption.
  54. 2012 Monday: Following political reforms in Myanmar, Australia relaxes sanctions on the country, including by-elections earlier this month where opposition leader, Aung San Suu Kyi’s party won more than a dozen seats.  Elsewhere, Roxy Music’s[viii] original bassist, Graham Simpson, died on this date in London, United Kingdom.  Meanwhile, “God Save the Queen,” the Sex Pistols big tune from 35 years ago which the BBC banned finally can be heard in the United Kingdom in time for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

  57. 2015 Thursday: Migrants continue drowning in the Mediterranean in the waters between Libya and Italy as yet another boat goes down, taking at least 340 people down to Davey Jones’ locker.  Elsewhere, European authorities charge 15 Muslim men from another boat with murder seeing as how they threw 12 Christians overboard to drown when their boat was floundering in high seas.  Crucify them.
  58. 2016 Saturday: The Afghan government continues repelling Taliban attacks on the city of Kunduz.  Afghan and U.S. troops are keeping the jihadists at bay.  Half a world away, Syria and ISIS continue doing battle with one another and many parts of the city of Aleppo are smoldering ruins.  For every rocket attack, the Syrian government answers with airstrikes.  Civilians are fleeing in all directions.
  59. 2017 Sunday: Dictatorial thug leader of Turkey- Recep Tayyip Erdogan- ‘wins’ approval for an 18-article constitutional reform which thrusts the nation ever deeper into totalitarianism.  Elsewhere, due to the stupidity of Hamas and Fatah officials, the Gaza Strip’s ONLY power generating plants shuts down.  It has run out of fuel, its bills have gone unpaid, many among the leadership have skimmed off fortunes from money given to the Palestinian Authority and all they can do is to blame it on the ‘blockade.’  Look, dimwits, the answer is simple: stop building tunnels into Israel and do something for your people.  Period. 
  60. 2018 Monday: Following a recent chemical weapons attack by the Syrian government on the town of Douma, critics are bellowing that the Russians have ‘covered up evidence at the crime scene’ to which, the Russians say, ‘not likely’ and that as soon as it’s safe there (as soon as they finish cleaning it up), they will allow a team from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons to visit the area. 
  61. 2019 Tuesday: While many of us love the Seattle Seahawks, there is no reason as to WHY the team made quarterback Russell Wilson the highest-paid QB in the game, giving him both a $65 million signing bonus as well as a four-year extension worth $140 million.  The rest of the team is struggling so it appears Seattle is going down the path the Baltimore Ravens went with QB Joe Flacco.  Where is Joe NOW?   Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump vetoes a bill demanding an end to U.S. support for the Saudi-led coalition fighting Iranian-backed Houthi scum in Yemen.
  62. 2020 Thursday: Jobless claims due to COVID-19, the Chinese gift to the world that won’t stop giving, come in at 5.2 million for the week.  Total claims since social distancing and economic shutdown hit 22 million Americans out of work.  This is all because of China.  We must make them pay when we come to the end of the pandemic, which we hope is soon.  Word continues to appear that demonstrate that the Wuhan Virus Crisis did indeed come out of a Chinese laboratory in the city of Wuhan where it just so happens the Chinese conduct biowarfare studies.  Although they continue lying that the virus came from somewhere else, who can believe a single word a communist regime says?  Communists always lie, it’s in their DNA which is why no one should take them at their word.  COVID-19 Statistics: currently, there are 2,151,199 confirmed cases around the planet what with 1 confirmed cases around the planet what with 143,725 confirmed fatalities as well as 541,501 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 672,931 confirmed cases with 34,386 confirmed deaths and 54,594 confirmed recoveries.  The Chinese claim 84,593 confirmed cases, 3,342 confirmed deaths and 79,112 confirmed recoveries.  Boy do the communists lie.
  63. 2020 Thursday A: The stock market today: the DOW Jones Industrial Average is 23,537.68, UP 33.33 (0.14%); the NASDAQ is 8,532.36, UP 139.19 (1.66%), and the S & P is 2,799.55, UP 16.19 (0.58%).  President Trump lays out his plan for a gradual reopening of the economy and people are ecstatic.  Meanwhile, authoritarian Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer and Congresswoman Debbie Dingell slander defenders of the U.S. Constitution who have protested the governor’s fascist executive orders by claiming the protesters were waving ‘Confederate and Swastika flags.’  Show us some pictures, please.  Again, we say, “ANTIFA, WHERE THE F**K ARE YOU?  YOU SHOULD BE IN MICHIGAN FIGHTING AGAINST THIS FASCIST GOVERNOR AND HER FELLOW DEMOCRATS!”
  64. 2021 Friday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 139,274,615 confirmed cases, +933,695, 2,989,590  confirmed deaths, +14,760, and 79,359,280 confirmed recoveries, +573,576.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,764,754 confirmed cases, UP 82,708 from yesterday’s reporting, 571,464 confirmed deaths, UP 933, and 119,018,094 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[ix]  In other COVID-19, a recent report says that Regeneron’s Chi-Vi cocktail can help prevent COVID-19 infections.
  65. 2021 Friday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 244,572 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  Meanwhile, people are questioning WHY if everyone is getting their shots why the hell people must continue wearing masks like that dimwitted little troll, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci continues telling us to do.  WTF is up with that?

  69. 2021 Friday E: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE THREE STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.953 per gallon, $2.833 in Florida, $3.748 in Hawaii, and $3.352 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Illinois: $3.080.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,178,345,152,208 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  70. 2021 Friday F: GUNS, GUNS, GUNS- You know folks, last night, 19-year-old Brandon Scott Hole went into the FedEx facility at the Indianapolis, Indiana, airport, shot and killed 8 people, wounded several others, and then took his own life.  His mother reportedly warned the cops last year that her son might try to go out via suicide by cop.  This is a tragedy for all involved but here’s the deal: since Joe Biden has become president, there have been more mass shootings than there were under the last two years of President Donald J. Trump what with 30 dead so far this month alone.  This tells us that the rhetoric used by feeble old Joe Biden and his Democratic Party henchmen-and-women is driving the nuts to go berserk, shooting, and killing and maiming innocent people.  It is clear many fear they are going to lose their weapons and since they have unfinished business, are going to act on it NOW.  Stop with all the HATE SPEECH, Joe, enough is enough.  (Note- the cops in Indianapolis say they are searching for a motive.  What the hell!  Mr. Hole wanted to die and he had some people with whom he wanted to settle scores.  Period).
  71. 2021 Friday G: BULLS**T POLL OF THE DAY- a recent PEW Poll says that Joe Biden’s approval rating stands at 59-percent.  Please.  This nothing but crap.  Speaking of Joe Biden, Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, says, that ‘Joe Biden is not up to the task at hand, especially the Chi-Coms who are our biggest threat and someone we should have nuked back in 1951.  In other Joe Biden news, he is holding his first meeting with another foreign leader, Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga of Japan, at the White House today.  We wonder who is speaking for him.   Anyhow, the two leaders agree that the Taiwan Strait must remain stable.
  72. 2021 Friday H: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE- common sense people are beginning to ask WTF we shut our country down over the Chi-Com virus when hundreds of thousands of people continue swamping across our border and disappearing into the interior of the country?  If the federal government could give a flying f**k about how many of the invaders have COVID-19, then why should anyone else?  Speaking of the border crisis, President George W. Bush- an ‘esteemed former president’ if one ever existed (yeah, right) says he supports immigration reform but not amnesty.  George, we feel the same way about you as we do Jimmy Carter.  When either one of you dimwits says anything, we quickly move onto something else.   
  73. 2021 Friday I: JOE BIDEN REFUGEE NEWS-  House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, the dumb b***h who slurs her words bad enough already but with a mask strapped over her pie hole makes it even more difficult to understand what the hell she is saying chided Joe Biden on not taking in enough refugees.  Oh, please, Nance, please Joe, bring in some more winners like Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, like the Syrian shooter in Boulder, Colorado, like the Boston bombers, please, bring in some more of those America-hating POS, we need more of them ASAP.   Meanwhile, Joe Biden moves to placate our European allies and says he will remove Trump-era caps on the number of refugees our country accepts in.  That truly sucks.
  74. 2021 Friday J: POLITICAL NEWS I- Someone said Chelsea “The Genius” Clinton may run for Congress.  Good God Almighty, please say it ain’t so.  She is as stupid as is the Fly, aka Baby Evita, aka Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, she with her Boston College economics degree.   Then again, she would fit right in with all the dimwitted Democrats serving in Congress already like Hank “Flat Top” Johnson, DS-GA 4th congressional district, and Congresswoman Sheila “Putty Puss” Jackson Lee, DS-TX 18th congressional district, and Congressman ‘Mr.’ James “Influence” Clyburn, DS-SC 6th congressional district, she would fit right in.   
  75. 2021 Friday K: POLITICAL NEWS II- Glenn Beck said today on his radio show that in the cities where Black Lives Matter protesters ran amok raping, pillaging, looting, robbing, and beating, there were a combined total of more than 6,000 additional homicides.  Coincidence?  We think not.  They are not a peace-loving group; they are fascist black-and-brown-shirted thugs in need of eradication.  Elsewhere, in other political news, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, has challenged the highly cerebral Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DS-NY 14th congressional district to a debate on the Green New Deal.  Now, we would pay handsomely to get ringside seats to see this duel to the death, MTG doing battle with the Fly on pay-per-view-TV.  Sign us up now.
  76. 2021 Friday L: POLITICAL NEWS III- In other political news, we learn that the director for the new Black Panther sequel is NOT going to follow his WOKE liberal comrades and boycott Georgia.  Good.  ‘WOKE’ will go away when people pay it NO attention.  None of us are going to NFL, NBA, or MLB games ever again nor are we going to buy Coca-Cola® products, Nike® sportswear, or any of the other crap that is boycotting everything.  We are not going to go see movies, we do not have to see how stupid we are, how great the Chi-Coms and perverts are, enough is enough.   Elsewhere, the great state of Florida passes an anti-riot bill.  About time someone does.  Look, government’s number one job is this: protecting the lives of its citizens and their property.  Plain, simple, and easy for the stupid to understand.  Once you raise an arm to throw a Molotov cocktail, you get shot.  Once you throw bricks and don’t stop when you are told to stop, you get shot.  Once you start looting, you are eligible to get shot.  This is the way it always was and should be again.
  77. 2021 Friday M: 2020 ELECTION NEWS- reports continue to arise that the number one person behind the changed election laws in numerous states and in the subsequent theft of the election from President Donald J. Trump is Bill and Hillary Clinton’s number one hired thug, attorney Mark Elias.  A partner at Perkins Cole, he is the head of their ‘political law’ department and this man- if we are to believe what we are now learning- is the number one operative behind the stolen election and the subsequent cover-ups of the theft.  In all states where election information has already been trashed, those states should have to hold another election at their expense.
  78. 2021 Friday N: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I- We learn that Hunter Biden’s NEW book in which he talks about smoking crack, banging teenaged whores, and doing all sorts of other evil and disgusting stuff has sold a whopping 10,638 books in its first week.  According to Bill O’Reilly, this is ‘crap’ seeing as how Bill’s new book, “Killing the Mob” has already sold 60,000 copies and is not even on the shelves of bookstores yet.  In other news, people are lamenting the 13-year-old boy who was shot dead in Chicago the other night by a cop.  Adam Toledo, aka Lil Homicide and Baby Diablo was gangbanging with his buds at 2:30 in the morning, running around with a loaded gun, shot at cops, then ran away and dumped the gun just as the cops rolled up and got shot.  YOU don’t want to get shot, don’t be banging, don’t be shooting at cops, and don’t be running around in the middle of the night.  Period.   We shed no tears.  Next, Raul Castro, dictator of Cuba, says yes indeed, he is going to resign.  Wow.
  79. 2021 Friday O: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II- U.S. Interior Secretary Debra Haaland, the first Norwegian-Native American to hold the job, is dumping Trump era rules concerning the fossil fuel industry’s rights on public lands.  Apparently, oil and gas companies will no longer be able to drill for vital national resources leaving us dependent upon OPEC, Russia, and other Third World producers of energy.  This makes no sense.  Next, conservative House Republicans are forming the ‘America First Caucus,’  a group to continue the legacy of President Donald J. Trump.   Next, Minneapolis public schools are hurriedly switching over to online learning as the city (and the country) braces for the verdict in the murder trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin.   Finally, the mother of slain EMT Breonna Taylor- Tamika Palmer- slams both State Representative Attica Scott, D-Louisville, and BLM, labeling both of them as ‘frauds’ in the aftermath of the shooting death of her daughter.  According to Ms. Palmer, she watched the TWO raise money off the death of Breonna without doing a damned thing to help her family.  Wow.  We understand.
  80. 2021 Friday P: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1651: 17, 27, 28, 50, 55, and Mega 25.  Out of 105,680 winning tickets, the highest winners were 64 people who had four numbers for a prize of $496 apiece.

Unfortunately, for the Russians, post-Soviet Russia has acknowledged that Josef Stalin’s much-feared secret police carried out the massacre.

  54. 2013 Saturday: The United States and the People’s Republic of China agree to work together to prohibit nuclear weapons on the Korean Peninsula.  But as was the norm during the ‘Age of Obama,’ Obama did not follow up and the communist Chinese never kept their word.   And people would ask WHY Donald Trump won the White House in 2016.
  55. 2014 Sunday: American golfer Bubba Watson wins the Masters’ Tournament a second year in a row.  Meanwhile, a white supremacist, Frazier Glenn Miller, shot to death three people in suburban Kansas City; he allegedly was targeting Jews but the people the POS shot were NOT Jews.  Elsewhere, Manny Pacquiao beats Tommy Bradley to regain his WBO welterweight title.   Meanwhile, in eastern Ukraine, ‘pro-Russian separatists’ are protesting the Ukrainian government, claiming they belong to the Russian motherland.  Obama, help the Ukrainians.

  57. 2016 Wednesday: As Russian ‘separatists’ continue running amok in the eastern Ukraine, Kiev reports that at least 8 of its soldiers have been wounded in fighting.  They want to know when President Barack Hussein Obama is going to send them something more than blankets (probably the foil kind provided to illegal aliens) and MREs.  They want ammo, offensive weapons, and cash help.  Where the hell is it?
  58. 2017 Thursday: Famed radio late night talk show host, Art Bell, founder of the Coast-to-Coast radio show that came on late at night, died at age 72 in his home in Pahrump, Nevada.  The day he died on was Friday the 13th.  Elsewhere, U.S., British, and French warplanes and missiles attacked Syrian chemical weapons sites across the country as an answer to an unprovoked chemical weapons attack on civilians in Douma, Syria, a suburb outside Damascus, a week earlier.
  59. 2018 Friday: President Donald J. Trump announced that the United States, France, and Britain had carried out joint airstrikes in Syria meant to punish President Bashar al-Assad for his alleged use of chemical weapons; no one knows to this day whether he authorized use of the WMDs or not, yet we blasted Syria with numerous strikes.   Meanwhile, violent protests continue along the border between Israel and Gaza as Palestinian extremists continue trying to cause trouble for Israel.  This leads to more IEDs being set off with Israeli retaliatory strikes against the jihadists.                                        
  60. 2019 Saturday: When the San Antonio Spurs beat the Denver Nuggets by a final score of 101-96 in the Western Conference Playoffs, Coach Gregg Popovich moves past Lenny Wilkens to become the all-time winningest coach as he notches his 1,413th win.  Congratulations, coach!   In Libya, the rebel government based in Tobruk announces that despite what the international community is demanding they do, they are going to continue their steamrolling advance toward Benghazi.  Can there be no peace in the region?

  62. 2021 Tuesday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 136,840,796 confirmed cases, +703,842, 2,949,096  confirmed deaths, +10,896, and 77,935,627 confirmed recoveries, +428,986.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,538,511 confirmed cases, UP 95,907 from yesterday’s reporting, 568,786 confirmed deaths, UP 892, and 119,007,497 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[viii]  In other COVID-19, a recent report says that Regeneron’s Chi-Vi cocktail can help prevent COVID-19 infections.
  63. 2021 Tuesday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 240,982 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.   Dr. Scott Gottlieb takes the ‘Biden administration’ to task for NOT surging vaccines and resources into coronavirus hotspots but to continue doling vaccines out based on population numbers. 
  64. 2021 Tuesday B: COVID-19 STATISTICS in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,704,605 confirmed cases, 60,465 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,134,906 confirmed cases, 34,119 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,113 confirmed cases, 471 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 380,554 confirmed cases, 5,380 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Maryland, the home of one of the BIGGEST pro-Confederate States of America during the Civil War: they have 429,730 confirmed cases, 8,484 confirmed deaths, but sadly, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.[ix] 
  65. 2021 Tuesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 836,261 confirmed cases, 6,304 confirmed deaths, and 826,694 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- one of the lesser Axis allies during the Second World War: 294,874 cases of the virus, 6,358 confirmed deaths and 276,420 confirmed recoveries.[x]    In other COVID-19 news, the federal government is calling for a halt to delivery of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine due to blood clots occurring in six people out of several million immunized by it.   Next, Centers for Disease Control director Dr. Rochelle Walensky is telling Michigan they had better shut everything down NOW or risk another major outbreak of the ‘VID.  However, the Michigan GOP blasts back at the CDC- ‘shut up and send more vaccines.’  (Governor Gretchen “Gravel Gertie” Whitmer, DS-MI, is clinging to her dictatorial powers for as long as she can).
  66. 2021 Tuesday D:   STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,677.27, DOWN 68.13 points (-0.20%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,996.10, UP 146.10 points (+1.05%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,141.59, UP 13.60 points (+0.33%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $60.45 per barrel, +0.27 (+0.45%).  The price of GOLD is $1,746.20 per troy oz., -1.40 (-0.08%) while the price of SILVER is $25.41 per troy ounce, -0.02 (-0.08%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,159.20 per troy oz, +2.10 (+0.18%) while the price of COPPER is $4.04 per pound, +0.01 (+0.19%).[xi]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,692.44 per troy oz, +16.72 (+0.62%).[xii] The price of RHODIUM is $28,500.00 per troy oz., -500.00 (-1.72%).[xiii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000016.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.54 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.08.     In Estonian kroon, one greenback equals 13.9470 and in Ethiopian Birr, a buck equals 41.58.[xiv]  
  67. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE THREE STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.936 per gallon, $2.842 in Florida, $3.736 in Hawaii, and $3.337 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- Georgia: $2.707.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,166,765,942,074 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.  Speaking of the National Debt, the GOP is demanding for a trimmed down, i.e., clean, bill, not one full of all manner of extraneous things stuffed into it.  Only 6-percent of the proposed $2 trillion infrastructure bill goes toward roads and bridges.  Top economists worry that Joe Biden’s ongoing spending are going to crash the U.S. economy down the road.
  68. 2021 Tuesday F: JOE BIDEN NEWS I- Joe Biden’s proposed nominee for undersecretary for U.S. Department of Defense- Colin Kohl- is facing opposition.  At least 18 GOP senators are demanding an FBI background investigation into the former Obama administration official over his reputed leaking of classified info upon his departure.  Elsewhere, concerns are arising over the risk of a confrontation with Vladimir Putin’s Russia over Joe Biden’s inept handling of the crisis in the Ukraine.  Next, Joe Biden says he plans to complete the troop pullout from Afghanistan by September 11, 2021.  This latter move is upsetting Senator Lindsey Graham, RINO-S.C., who says that ‘pulling U.S. troops out of Afghanistan is like canceling our insurance policy against another 9-11-style terrorist attack from occurring here in the United States.’[xvii]
  69. 2021 Tuesday G: JOE BIDEN NEWS II- According to reports, Joe Biden plans on keeping U.S. ambassador to Russia- John J. Sullivan, nominated by President Donald J. Trump- in place.   Meanwhile, a recent TIPP poll says that 68-percent of the American people believe a special counsel should be appointed to investigate the shady business and drug dealings of Joe Biden’s son, Hunter.  In other Joe Biden news, when Joe Biden ‘spoke’ with Russian President Vladimir Putin, he claimed he spoke about imprisoned Putin critic Alexei Navalny but Russian exile Mikhail Khodorkovsky said that that is simply not the case.  Biden said NOTHING about Mr. Navalny who is being tortured by Putin’s thugs.[xviii]   Finally, Joe Biden plans to reach ‘white conservatives’ on COVID-19 vaccines by pandering to them via NASCAR, Country & Western Music, and through TV shows like “Deadliest Catch” and other shows.  Wow.  Pander, pander, pander.  Joe, we ain’t no ways stupid, sir, we don’t need you putting commercials on “Ice Road Truckers,” “Pawn Stars,” and “The Voice.”
  70. 2021 Tuesday H: POLITICAL NEWS I- Congressman Andrew Clyde, R-GA 9th congressional district, says that he is going to sue House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA, over her fining lawmakers $5,000 per offense of avoiding the metal detectors she has installed all over Fort Pelosi.  He says this is “BS.”  Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin says the U.S. is going to reverse President Trump’s order to pull troops out of Germany and to redeploy them elsewhere.  They are going to stay put.  Meanwhile, YouTube (owned by POS Sundar Pichai and Google) has banned Dr. Sebastian Gorkha’s channel for supposedly violating their policies on the 2020 Presidential Election meaning, he has been telling the truth- the Democrats STOLE the 2020 Presidential Election.  Period.  Stick that in your pipe and smoke it, bi***es.   Finally, famed legal scholar Baylor University Chancellor Ken Starr told Newsmax TV that WOKE Cancel Culture is extremely hostile to organized religion.
  71. 2021 Tuesday I: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS- In the Mexican state of Guerrero, citizens are arming their children to combat the out-of-control drug cartels running amok along the border.   Next, Iran announces that it’s going to enrich uranium to 60-percent, its highest ever.  Now is the time for the Israelis to set off a nuclear chain reaction in all Iranian nuclear facilities.  Let’s blow these scumbags to meet with Mohammad.  NOW.  Elsewhere, we hear that masked men carrying sledgehammers burst into the Epoch Times’ headquarters in Hong Kong and began smashing up everything.  Xi Jinping’s thugs are at it again.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Chris Salcedo on Newsmax said that the PRC is the Number 2 slaveholding state in the world, running a close race with India.  Finally, U.S. intelligence reports that North Korea may soon be conducting nuclear weapons tests once again (seeing as how enfeebled old Joe Biden is in the White House).
  72. 2021 Tuesday J: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I-  Following the accidental shooting death of Duante Wright in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, all hell is breaking loose across the country.  Overnight, law enforcement in that city arrested at least 40-60 people for rioting, robbing, looting, arson, and rape.  In the aftermath of the shooting, both Brooklyn Center’s Police Chief Tim Gannon and Officer Kim Potter- under pressure to resign- have resigned.  At press time, the mayor of the city, Mike Elliott, fired the city manager, Curt Boganey, for disagreeing with him by saying Officer Potter deserved due process. 
  73. 2021 Tuesday K: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II- In New York City, Black Lives Matter rabble close down the Manhattan Bridge.   SHOOT THEM.  Congresswoman Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, DS-MI 13th congressional district, released a statement in which, she condemned all police as being racist, the system untenable, and that we must- as Karl Marx encouraged- tear everything down and rebuild it atop a socialist foundation.   (Someone, please strip this witch of her citizenship and deport her back to Gaza).  Her buddy, Congresswoman Ayanna “Chrome Dome” Pressley, DS-MA 7th congressional district, tweeted ‘from slave patrols to traffic stops, there ain’t no fixing none of this so burn it all down y’all.’  Moving on, the prosecution in the murder trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin has rested and the defense is up on Day 12.
  74. 2021 Tuesday L: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III- Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley says, ‘IF Donald Trump runs in 2024, she won’t run for the presidency.”  (Good, Nikki, because the days of voting for the lesser of two evils is over and done.  Period.).   Next, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, made mention of a Michael Vick voting ad, ‘it’s persuasive if you like murdering puppies.’   Elsewhere, Juul Labs is facing racketeering charges over deceptive advertising.   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump says that New York’s tax laws no longer apply to him seeing as how he is no longer in the White House.  Moving on, the Suez Canal Authority has seized the Japanese-owned vessel, the “Ever-Given,” the one that clogged traffic on the canal for nearly two weeks.  They are demanding at least $900 million from the vessel’s owners which will cover the humongous salvage operations required to free the ship and to restart stalled canal traffic.  Negotiations continue.  Meanwhile, France is banning travelers from Brazil as the South American nation is being overrun by the Chi-Vi.
  75. 2021 Tuesday M: CALIFORNIA LOTTERY NEWS- stick around for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1650 with a pot of $220 million. Here are the numbers: 10, 15, 19, 45, 68, and Mega 09. Out of 119,081 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $28,492.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Always on the move, Michael Schenker formed a ‘new group,’ one known as Temple of Rock.  Joining the smoking hot guitarist from the Fatherland are bassist Francis Buchholz, Michael Voss and Doogie White (vocals), Herman Rarebell (drums), and Wayne Findlay (keyboards).  The resulting effort produced “Temple of Rock,” which then went out on the road and performed some smoking sets that set the fans hair ablaze. The live album, “Live in Europe,” hit record store shelves on November 08, 2012.  We must say that the original parent band UFO has delivered some of rock’s greatest musicians and this effort encapsulates that fact.  We hope you will rush out and seek this one out NOW so you can add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Famed guitarist Michael Schenker decided that he would record an album of songs that influenced him early on in his career and brought together a variety of musicians to help him knock out 13 amazing tunes.  “By Invitation Only” came out on June 25, 2011 and featured not only the blazing guitarist but a who’s who of rockers such as bassists Tony Franklin (The Firm), Tony Levin (Peter Gabriel), Jeff Pilson (Dokken, Dio, Foreigner), among others as well as drummers such as Mike Baird (Journey), Simon Wright (AC/DC, Dio), Aynsley Dunbar (Journey, Jefferson Starship), among others.  Most of the tunes are recorded as power trios with the exception of one in which, a saxophone solo was essential.  Say what you will but it appears that Mr. Schenker NEVER sleeps (must be some good stuff).  Seek him out and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

Meanwhile, in the Battle of Dien Bien Phu, the People’s Army is launching massive attacks against the French Union, French Legionnaires, and local troops along the east side of the camp. Huge artillery barrages precede human wave assaults where the communists spring out of trenches dug right up to the wire. The battles being fought around the hilltop Eliane 2 are fierce but the French trade their shrinking perimeters for a high cost in communist blood.

  40. 1944 Saturday: John Barbata, future drummer of the Turtles[ii], the Jefferson Airplane[iii], the Jefferson Starship, and Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young[iv] was born on this date in Passaic, New Jersey.   Elsewhere, during the air war over occupied Europe, a grave error occurs today as 50 B-24 bombers flew into Switzerland’s airspace and bombed the wrong target, killing at least 40 or more civilians.  Pilots shot down over Switzerland of all sides were typically interned there until the end of the war and the Swiss were not big fans of the Allies, the United States in particular.  This mistake did not help things between the two countries.
  41. 1945 Sunday: American forces launched the amphibious invasion of Okinawa during World War II.  This would prove to be one of the costliest fights of World War II and the catastrophic loss of life on both sides would press President Harry S. Truman to authorize the dropping of atomic bombs onto the Japanese home islands in the hopes it would force them to surrender.

  47. 1953 Wednesday: Congress created the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare on this date.

Colonel “Gars Pierre” Langlais informs his command to cut the Thai auxiliaries loose.  No longer are they dependable.[ix]
  49. 1960 Friday: The United States launched TIROS-1, the nation’s first weather satellite on this date.
  50. 1961 Saturday: Evangelist Jim Bakker marries Tammy Faye.

  53. 1970 Wednesday: President Richard M. Nixon signs the Public Health Cigarette Smoking Act, an act that banned cigarette advertisements effective on January 1, 1971.  Meanwhile, for his part in the My Lai Massacre, the U.S. Army charged Captain Ernest Medina on this date.

  58. 1982 Thursday: The U.S. transferred the Canal Zone to Panama.
  59. 1983 Friday: Tens of thousands of anti-nuclear demonstrators linked arms in a 14-mile human chain spanning three defense installations in rural England, including the Greenham Common U.S. Air Base.
  60. 1991 Monday: After five years of holding British citizen Roger Cooper hostage, the scumbag Islamist regime in Iran released him.  Meanwhile here in the United States, the Supreme Court ruled that attorneys could not bar jurors from serving due to their race.  Finally, with the ongoing collapse of the Soviet Union, the Warsaw Pact disbanded. 
  61. 1992 Wednesday: The National Hockey League’s Players’ Association went on it’s first-ever strike, which lasted 10 days.  Elsewhere, the world’s 7 wealthiest nations agree on $24 billion aid for former U.S.S.R.

  64. 2001 Sunday: George W. Bush has not been in office long when his first international crisis occurs as a U.S. intelligence-gathering aircraft flying in international waters is intercepted and rammed by a Chi-Com fighter jet.  The U.S. plane is seriously damaged and is forced down in Chi-Com territory while the PRC warplane goes down in the ocean and sinks.  The Chi-Coms will keep our people prisoner and will take the spy plane apart one screw at a time.
  65. 2002 Monday: Palestinians continue causing problems for the Israelis and fighting between terrorists and Israeli Defense Forces continues.  Gradually, Israeli troops are pushing the rabid jihadists towards the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem where the human garbage will seek refuge from an Israeli ass-whooping.  
  66. 2003 Tuesday: American troops entered a hospital in Nasiriyah, Iraq, and rescued Army Pfc. Jessica Lynch, who had been held prisoner since jihadists ambushed her supply column on March 23.
  67. 2004 Thursday: Suffering from the effects of kidney and liver disease, Paul Atkinson—guitarist with the British rock band, the Zombies[x]—loses his fight with his maladies and dies in a hospital in Santa Monica, California; he was 58-years-old.
  68. 2005 Friday: Hamas and Islamic Jihad have announced that they are considering- in principle- of joining the Palestine Liberation Organization.
  69. 2006 Saturday: White House Press Secretary Tony Snow announces that the administration is concerned over news of a potential toppling of the Lebanese government  by a cabal of Syria, Iran, and Hamas forces.  Of course, it appears that the Bush administration is searching for yet another opportunity to launch a new regime change war in the Middle East, ostensibly to help an ‘ally,’ Beirut.
  70. 2007 Sunday: Former United States Health and Human Services Secretary Tommy Thompson, Republican, throws his hat into the 2008 Presidential Election race.

  72. 2009 Wednesday: In St. Petersburg, Russia, some anti-communist wag partially toppled a statue of Vladimir Lenin at the railway station with a bomb.  Police are seeking the suspect.   Meanwhile, the U.S. and Russia commence talks on a new Strategic Arms Limitations Treaty. 
  73. 2010 Thursday: Russian President Dmitry Medvedev- Vladimir Putin’s puppet- makes a surprise visit to Dagestan following a double suicide attack the day before that killed at least 12 people and wounded numerous others.  Meanwhile, former Alaskan Governor and vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin gives a speech in Nevada to tens of thousands of people seeking to get Senator Harry Reid, D-NV, out of office.
  74. 2011 Friday: Off the coast of Greece, Crete suffers a 6.2-magnitude earthquake.  Elsewhere, across the Near and Middle East, the Arab Spring continues as nations from the Persian Gulf to the end of North Africa at the Atlantic Ocean continue to see people running amok, trying to topple governments and murder leaders.  It’s akin to watching global insanity among members of the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam.
  75. 2012 Sunday: In Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood nominates Chairman Khairat El-Shater as a candidate for the May 2012 presidential elections.  Meanwhile, as the Syrian civil war continues to rage, Syrian military assets and artillery begin assaulting the city of Homs where a bunch of antigovernment and perhaps even ISIS thugs are holed up.  Wipe ‘em out, boys.
  76. 2013 Monday: In preparation for plans to step down in 2015, the president of Sudan Omar al-Bashar gives an order to release all political prisoners.  Elsewhere, in North Korea, at the annual convening of the People’s Supreme Assembly, their version of a parliament, begins after Kim Jong Un finished leveling threats of thermonuclear war against BOTH South Korea and the United States.  Fine people do something about it, President Barack Hussein Obama.
  77. 2014 Tuesday:  Fifty-eight miles north of the Chilean city of Iquique, an earthquake of 8.2 magnitude hits the area, stunning the region.  An earlier earthquake that hit on March 16 was 6.2-magnitude on the Richter scale; scientists predict an even bigger one soon.  Meanwhile, thanks to Russian land-grabs in the Crimea, NATO cancels all civil and military cooperation with Vladimir Putin’s Russia.  We’re sure they’re upset.  Elsewhere, the death toll in the West African nation of Guinea from its ongoing Ebola virus outbreak is now at 80 dead with possibly dozens sickened.
  78. 2015 Wednesday: Following problems with reaching a self-imposed reduction in water usage in drought-stricken California, Democrat Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown mandates a 25-percent reduction under threat of legal punishment to force lower usage of the precious resource.  Meanwhile, the governor-fearful of rising sea levels, continues to allow millions of acre-feet of water to flow out into the Pacific Ocean to protect the Delta smelt.  Impeach the bastard!  Elsewhere, famed British guitarist Dave Ball who played with Procol Harum died on this date in his native England; he was 65 years-old.
  79. 2016 Friday: At the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California, the Golden State Warriors’ NBA record for home game wins ends as the Boston Celtics beat them, 109-106; it was the team’s first loss at home since January 2015.  Elsewhere, as world leaders convene in Washington, D.C., at the annual Nuclear Security Summit, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un gives them something on which to chew: he fires off a couple of missiles from the east coast of his s***hole country and into the ocean.  “Notice me,” appears to be the message.
  80. 2017 Saturday: In Stockholm, Sweden, famed singer/songwriter Bob Dylan wins his Nobel Peace Prize for Literature in a private ceremony.  God bless you, Bob.   Meanwhile, the government of Communist China announces its plan to build a city three-times the size of New York City (using American money, of course, purloined from us via disastrous past trade ‘deals’) in Xlongan, a new area.  Three years later, they spread the Wuhan Flu to the rest of the world.  Thank you, China, thank you.
  81. 2018 Sunday: In the 37th NCAA Women’s Basketball Championship, a stunner of a game occurs as Notre Dame beats Mississippi State by a final of 61-58 what with ND forward Jessica Shepard scoring 19 points.  Elsewhere, combined U.S. and South Korean forces commence their annual military drills, codenamed “Foal Eagle” and “Key Resolve.”  Of course, North Korean strongman, Kim Jong Un, is unhappy with the drills.
  82. 2019 Monday: China announces new laws to take effect on May 01, 2019, to stop the production of fentanyl-related opiates.  Okay.  China is the number one provider of opiates to the United States, being the ‘unseen hand’ distributing harmful drugs to Americans and causing far too many to die from them.  Shame.  Elsewhere, we learn that Saudi ARAMCO is the most profitable company in the world what with $111.1 billion in the previous year.    
  83. 2020 Wednesday: China continues being a major problem for the rest of the globe as the Wuhan Flu continues wreaking havoc wherever it shows up- with the strange exception of China (or so they claim)- with total number of confirmed cases at or near 911,308 and total number of confirmed deaths at 45,497.  We now know, however, that China has concealed- intentionally- the number of confirmed cases and number of confirmed deaths within their country so who the heck can believe anything these totalitarians claim?  The U.S. number of confirmed cases is closing in at 213,000 with 47,000 or so confirmed deaths.  This is outrageous, yet in China, the infamous WET MARKETS are open once more so the populace can enjoy their bat, rat, cat, dog, monkey, snakes, lizards, insects, and other exotic and endangered animals on their dinner table.  Shame!  World beware of the Wuhan Boogie Woogie!
  84. 2021 Thursday: Stick around to discover what the communists are up to today…

  49. 2014 Thursday: Royal Caribbean’s cruise liner, Explorer of the Seas, returns to port after 700 of its 3,050 passengers become ill with gastroenteritis; the illness is suspected to be the Norovirus, a variant strain of the species Norwalk virus.

  51. 2016 Saturday: The Zika virus outbreak continues spreading with Jamaica reporting its first case while in Colombia, at least 2,100 pregnant women discover they have the mosquito-borne disease that can cause birth defects to their unborn babies.  Meanwhile, due to North Korea’s increasing belligerence (more so than normal), Japan puts its armed forces on the alert.
  52. 2017 Monday: The first known mention of the coup against President Donald J. Trump occurred on this day when well-known leftist attorney Mark S. Zaid Esq. put out a tweet in which he said: #coup has started.  First of many steps.  #rebellion.  #impeachment will follow ultimately.  #lawyers.  Folks, this POFS should be arrested and charged with treason and sent to Leavenworth to break boulders into gravel for the rest of his life.  Elsewhere, in Canada law enforcement officers arrest a French-Canadian student for the shooting the previous day that killed six and wounded five others.  He is charged with the crime.
  53. 2018 Tuesday: President Donald J. Trump delivers his first State of the Union Address to the 115th Congress.  It’s a great speech but critics slam it for being dark, depressing, and un-American.  House Speaker Paul Ryan sits behind him smirking, knowing that he’s going to leave office.
  54. 2019 Wednesday: A medical team in Israel claims to have discovered a cure for cancer.  As soon as this is announced, the world medical community begins blasting them as liars.  Meanwhile, the government of Canada informs Havana that it’s pulling out half its embassy staff following the 14th case of the mystery microwave attacks that have bedeviled both U.S. and Canadian diplomats and workers.  Time to nuke Cuba.
  55. 2020 Thursday: The question and answer phase in the impeachment trial of President Donald J. Trump continues as Adam Schiff continues lying and lying.  He claims he does not know the alleged ‘whistleblower,’ Eric C., who spent time on the National Security Council with another man- Shawn Misko- who happens to have gone to work for the House Intel Committee chairman AFTER the phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky occurred.  We are expected to believe this…what a load.   Elsewhere, as cases of the Chinese Virus continue skyrocketing, the Chi-Coms’ lackey Dr. Tedros at the World Health Organization declares a ‘global emergency,’ something that does not occur all that often.  It is what it is.  Thank you, communist China, thank you.
  56. 2021 Saturday: DAY ELEVEN OF THE BIDEN REGIME- after the first 10 days, President Joe Biden has signed 40 executive orders and memorandums.  Next, the Department of Justice rolls back on Trump administration policies regarding crime and sentencing.  Could it be President Biden is returning to his old ways and seeking to send minorities to prison for longer terms?  That would surprise NO one around here.  Meanwhile, Texas Congressman Chip Roy urges Rep. Sandy Cortez to apologize to Senator Ted Cruz whom she was whining ‘tried to kill her’ on January 6.  Dingbat.   Elsewhere, Ohio lawmakers seek to make June 14 to be “Donald John Trump Day.”  We like that.  Finally, Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene- under assault by multitudes of rabid liberals- says she will ‘NEVER stop fighting for America First Patriots.’  God bless you, congresswoman.  Speaking of Rep. Greene, Democratic-Socialist firebrand Congresswoman Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar says, ‘Greene MUST BE REMOVED from Congress so she will feel safer.’  How about this- how about you returning to Somalia and STFU?  That would work for millions of Americans.   Next, regarding Muslims, President Biden says he’s going to move to shield thousands of Syrian ‘refugees’ from being deported back to their home country.
  57. 2021 Saturday A: Elsewhere, as COVID-19 funds dry up, American Airlines warn thousands of workers that ‘furloughs are coming.’  Speaking of the Chi-Vi, investigators are onsite in Wuhan, China, trying to determine where exactly the coronavirus pandemic began and how it began.   Meanwhile, France says it’s not going to implement a third COVID-19 lockdown.  It is what it is.  Elsewhere, farmers in India are going on a hunger strike after clashing with law enforcement during protests.  In order to counter this grassroots anger, New Delhi has limited internet usage.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security orders ICE and Border Patrol officers NO longer to use the term ‘illegal aliens’ in either their speech or in official documents but to use the euphemism ‘undocumented migrant.’  Oooh, touchy-feelie, we like that.  Makes you feel warm and snug all over now doesn’t it…
  58. 2021 Saturday B: The South Carolina GOP censures Congressman Tom Rice over his vote to impeach President Donald J. Trump.  We smell a primary challenger coming next year.  Next, following the Annual March for Life, pro-life demonstrators are calling on lawmakers to pass more pro-life legislation.  We hope they do.  Next, the RNC plans on inviting President Donald J. Trump to its spring donor retreat.   Speaking of the GOP, it plans on meeting with Joe Biden to discuss his appalling lack of concern for the loss of hundreds of thousands of blue collar, union, energy sector jobs.  We mean, WTF, Joe?  Finally, lawmakers in Washington, D.C. are arguing over making fencing around the Capitol Building permanent.  This is crazy,  there is no threat yet Democrats seek to perpetuate the FALSE NOTION that threat exists for lawmakers and staffers.  We must vote this scum out of office ASAP. 
  59. 2021 Saturday C: Senator Rand Paul slams the idea of COVID-19 testing for all domestic airlines flights.  We concur, it’s unnecessary and stupid as we know the chance of catching the virus on an airliner is less than catching it in a restaurant which is extremely LOW.  Yet, elected Democrats and Deep State apparatchiks continue feeding us this dope.  Simultaneously, the CDC orders that anyone aboard public transportation must- guess what- wear a flipping facemask.  Goofy.  Speaking of the Chi-Vi, a case of the South African variant has been discovered in Maryland.   Next, the warden at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, the place where big Democrat donor and pedophile Jeffrey Epstein most likely was murdered to keep him silent, is retiring.  Elsewhere, we learn today that the top ISIS leader in Iraq was killed in a U.S. airstrike.  Finally, Facebook is hiring a ‘compliance officer’ amid ‘security concerns.’
  60. 2021 Saturday D: COVID-19 Daily Update:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 102,403,247 confirmed cases, +421,801, 2,214,613, confirmed deaths, +10,917, and 56,654,869 confirmed recoveries, +292,859.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 26,283,491 confirmed cases, up 127,099 from yesterday’s reporting, 443,929 confirmed deaths, UP 2,649, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- NO more updates on this number thanks to Joe Biden.    
  61. 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: 3,291,137 confirmed cases, 40,216 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,070 confirmed cases (again, Hawaii is no longer reporting their case numbers in more than a week), 407 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 314,033 confirmed cases, 4,368 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the country: U.S. Virgin Islands: currently, they have 2,398 confirmed cases, 24 confirmed deaths, but 2,283 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 633,991 confirmed cases, 4,700 confirmed deaths, and 558,249 confirmed recoveries.
  62. 2021 Saturday F: An 11-alarm fire in Passaic, New Jersey, at a recycling center is raging away.  Firefighters from more than 20 firehouses are on site battling the blaze that erupted yesterday.  The center is one of the biggest employers in the city and it appears they may not be able to save it.  Meanwhile, tens of thousands of protesters took to the streets in Lansing, Michigan, demanding that high school sports be restored but Democrat crackpot Governor Gretchen Whitmer won’t permit it being the out-of-control authoritarian that she is.  Keep fighting people, fight to keep your rights.
  63. 2021 Saturday G: Stick around for tonight’s Super Lotto and Powerball drawings.  Let’s see some winners!  How soon before Democratic-Socialists demand that lottery winners hand over 90-percent of their winnings so the Dems can then redistribute them to their beloved illegal aliens?  Don’t laugh- these people are scumbags and they’ve never seen a dollar they didn’t want to redistribute to someone undeserving of it. Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3530 with $16 million on the line: 01, 06, 13, 19, 45, and Mega 12.  Out of 113,780 winning tickets, FIVE people had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $7,636 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold in (1) 7/11 in Roseville, CA 95661; (2) Circle K in Irvine, CA 92606; (3) Power Market in Pittsburgh, CA 94565; (4) 7/11 in Westminster, CA 92683; and (5) 7/11 in Pleasant Hill, CA 94523.  Next here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #816 with a $30 million jackpot on the line: 01,02, 07, 52, 61, and Powerball 04.  Out of 55,699 winning tickets, the highest winners were 38 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $390 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Michael Schenker Group returned on September 15, 1983, with another heavy duty rock album, “Built to Destroy.”  Graham Bonnet was gone and Gary Barden was back on vocals.  Otherwise, the lineup was mostly the same with guitarist Schenker, Chris Glen (bass), Ted McKenna (drums/percussion), with newcomer Andy Nye on keyboards.  Like UFO, the times they were a-changing what with the 1980s becoming more techno-pop-oriented and some bands had challenging times trying to keep up with the groove.  Still, we love this album and are sure that you will, too, which is why we are promoting it to all the fans of the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day.  Please, check it out and enjoy- you will be glad you did.

  57. 2016 Monday: At the University of Phoenix Stadium, #2 Alabama beats #1 Clemson 45-40 to win the College Football National Championship.  What an exciting game.  Elsewhere, in Baghdad, Iraq, jihadists affiliated with ISIS carry out a bombing attack on a marketplace which blows up at least 51 people and wounding numerous others.  The site ISIS assaulted was reported to be an ‘illegal casino,’ something the goody-two-shoes Islamists cannot tolerate- people having fun.  Meanwhile, protesters in Germany take to the streets to protest the thousands of sexual assaults that Muslim refugees allowed into the country by Chancellor Angela Merkel committed on New Year’s Eve, especially in Leipzig and Cologne.

  61. 2020 Saturday: In the AFC Division Game, the Tennessee Titans blow out the Baltimore Ravens 28-12 to move to the AFC Championship Game while in the NFC Division Game, the San Francisco 49ers whoop the Minnesota Vikings 27-10.  Elsewhere, former New York City Michael Bloomberg says he’s ‘open to spending $1 billion to defeat President Donald J. Trump.’  What a guy.   Meanwhile, the Iranians admit they screwed up when they shot down an Ukrainian airliner flying out of Tehran on January 8 when they began launching missiles at U.S. bases in neighboring Iraq.  They fired antiaircraft artillery at the plane they thought was American or American cruise missiles coming in, killing all 176 people aboard the doomed craft. 
  62. 2021 Monday: A New York state attorneys group is moving to disbar “America’s Mayor” and President Donald J. Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, for his part in the ‘Storming the Capitol Building 2021” so-called ‘insurrection.’  Next, the U.S. Supreme Court nixes a ‘fast-track’ for all of President Trump’s election fraud cases.  Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi continues urging Vice President Mike Pence to utilize the 25th Amendment so he and the Cabinet can remove a ‘extremely dangerous president from office before he can cause further harm to the country.’  Not going to happen, “Mumbles,” not going to happen. Speaking of the senile House speaker, she has ONE ARTICLE of impeachment against the 45th president ready to go which Talk Radio GIANT Rush Limbaugh presumes to be the opening round in negotiations to get Trump out of office in exchange for no prosecutions against him or members of his family for all time provided he never runs again.  This could be true but we doubt President Trump will give in to his worst political enemy.
  63. 2021 Monday A: The jabbering mullahs in Tehran warn the world they have all sorts of missile bases along their coastline with all manner of weapons heretofore unseen in the history of the world, weapons that can defy the weapons of every other nation.  Bulls**t.  They use a lot of Styrofoam and paint to create the ‘illusion’ they have the best weapons in the world.  We say, “NUKE THEM.  NOW!”  Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms deny forcible abortions and sterilizations of minority women in their country.  We here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM say they are following ‘more the Nazi-Fascist model’ than they are the one espoused by founder Mao Zedong and his brand of Marxism- Maoism.  Meanwhile, Beijing threatens a ‘counterstrike’ on the U.S. for defying their ‘blockade’ of Taiwan over the U.S. lifting restrictions on U.S.-Taiwan, aka Republic of China (the REAL China), relations.  Finally, the U.S. designates Cuba a state sponsor of terrorism and the Houthi rebels in Yemen as a TERRORIST GROUP.
  64. 2021 Monday B: In other foreign news, the Chi-Coms propaganda ministry slams President Donald J. Trump and the New York Stock Exchange over their delisting and holding accountable numerous Chi-Com firms in league with the Chi-Com military.  The Beijing mouthpieces claim that in doing so, the U.S. is ‘actually hurting itself through delisting these companies.’  Give us a break.  Wah, wah, wah.  Meanwhile, the outgoing U.S. Trade Adviser Robert Lighthizer urges the incoming ‘Pro-China Joe” Biden administration to maintain the tariffs on the Chi-Coms.  Sadly, we know “Pro-China Joe” will rip them off the moment he assumes office.
  65. 2021 Monday C: ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden names ex-diplomat and former U.S. ambassador to Russia William Burns to head the Central Intelligence Agency.   Next, we learn that the theme of ‘Pro-China Joe’s’ Inauguration Day will be “AMERICA UNITED,” even as he won’t discourage House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi from impeaching President Trump again.  Speaking of Trump and things associated with Trump, the U.S. Army is investigating an officer who led a group to Washington, D.C., to protest the stolen election.  The officer being investigated is Captain Emily Rainey, a psy-ops warfare specialist stationed at Ft. Bragg.  Next, the PGA is canceling a contract between President Trump’s Bedminster Course and the organization, one that would have seen the 2022 PGA Championship played there.  Wow.
  66. 2021 Monday D: The U.S. Supreme Court rebuffed a bid to establish universal mail-in voting across the Lone Star State.  Next, following its ban on President Donald J. Trump and its participation in the war against Parler, Twitter’s shares drop by an astounding 7-percent.  Not good for them.  Even more interesting, noted Trump critic, German Chancellor Angela Merkel says that ‘President Trump’s eviction from Twitter is problematic.’  It’s okay for the Iranians to talk about killing everyone but President Trump sharing his mind is EVIL and must be stopped.  What a load of crap.  Good for you, Herr Chancellor.  Speaking of Twitter, after their San Francisco headquarters calls cops because there are a few people outside the facility protesting their actions against Trump, Jack Dorsey calls for police protection.  
  67. 2021 Monday E: Elsewhere in the world, the Saudi Crown Prince Mohamed Bin Salman is planning a city that won’t have automobiles for the ‘future beyond oil.’   Meanwhile, the most unpopular pontiff in modern times- Pope Francis- issues a decree permitting women greater roles in the church but still won’t permit priests to marry.  What a guy.  Elsewhere, the world’s biggest companies announce they will suspend donations to ALL U.S. lawmakers who voted AGAINST the certification of ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden and ‘Kooky Kamala’ Harris.  My, my, my- the cancel culture strikes again.   Finally, GOP Congressman Vernon Jones of Georgia warns ‘Pro-China Joe’ that impeaching Trump again is not going to heal the country.’
  68. 2021 Monday F: President Donald J. Trump will be in Texas today celebrating the construction of 400 miles of border security fencing and walls along the border with Mexico.  Meanwhile, the first lady of the United States Melania Trump roundly condemns the Capitol Hill violence that occurred this past Wednesday.   Elsewhere, as alarms continue being raised at the omnipotent power of an ever-growing BIG TECH, Parler says it’s going to sue Amazon.com for violations of U.S. antitrust laws.   Finally, the Capitol Hill Police Department names a new acting chief of police- Deputy Chief Yogananda Pittman.  Regarding the Capitol Hill cops failure to quell the riots of Wednesday, January 06, 2021, outgoing chief and fall guy for the debacle Chief Steven Sund says he sought help from local and federal law enforcement SIX times which should tell everyone the entire event was orchestrated and coordinated by the left. Finally, famed NFL football coach Bill Belichick is going to receive the Medal of Freedom, the highest award for a civilian.
  69. 2021 Monday G:  One year on from the first death of the infamous Chi-Vi, the People’s Republic of (Communist) China still won’t provide answers to the world.  Meanwhile, questions continue swirling around Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo as to WHY tens of thousands of precious COVID-19 vaccines- vaccines this POS begged for- are ending up in the garbage dumpsters across the state, unused, out-of-date, and spoiled.  Boy, would we love to see this POS wearing an orange jumpsuit doing time in a federal supermax penitentiary.   Still, we hear that Governor Cuomo and his dingbat buddy, Mayor Bill Di Blasio are down on their decrepit knees praying to their god, Karl Marx, that ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden will bail them out once he occupies the White House.  Let them suffer.  Elsewhere, Texas state officials are considering a secession movement.
  70. 2021 Monday H: B-I-G changes occurring at the Fox News Channel what with a reordering or demotion of long-time hosts with Martha MacCallum becoming the first casualty, demoted to daytime TV.  They are doing this because Newsmax is cleaning their clocks.  We know that everyone we know who watched FNC has abandoned the network and gone to Newsmax and OAN.  It’s NOT your hosts, Fox, it’s YOU telling them they can no longer talk about Donald Trump or the 2020 Presidential Election honestly.  Combined with far too many liberals across your network, you made your bed now sleep in it.   Elsewhere, Colin Powell says he’s ‘no longer a Republican.’  Note to Colin: you haven’t been a Republican in 20 flipping years.  Meanwhile, DHS Secretary Chad Wolf announces he is resigning his position.  The rats continue jumping off the ship.  Finally, Louisiana Democrat Congressman Benny Thompson says, ‘Republicans should be on the NO-FLY LIST.’  Wow.  Talk about unification!
  71. 2021 Monday I: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 90,724,811 confirmed cases, +719,024, 1,941,143, confirmed deaths, +9,761, and 50,167,081 confirmed recoveries, +281,801.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 22,708,005 confirmed cases, up 256,882 from yesterday’s reporting, 378,580 confirmed deaths, UP 2,049, and 9,900,635 confirmed recoveries, UP 49,981.
  72. 2021 Monday J: 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: 2,745,197 confirmed cases, 30,057 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases, 309 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 276,383 confirmed cases, 3,776 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Oklahoma: currently, they have 335,247 confirmed cases, 2,775 confirmed deaths, and 289,309 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 491,319 confirmed cases, 3,671 confirmed deaths, and 419,907 confirmed recoveries.
  73. 2021 Monday K:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,008.69, DOWN 89.28 points (-0.29%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,036.43, DOWN 165.54 points (-1.25%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,799.61, DOWN 25.07 points (-0.66%).  The price of GOLD is $1,847.00 per troy oz., -3.80 (-0.21%) while the price of SILVER is $25.14 per troy ounce, -0.149 (-0.59%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,043.90 per troy oz, -0.70 (-0.07%) while the price of COPPER is $3.56 per pound, -0.0065 (-0.18%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,378.80 per troy oz, +13.80 (+0.58%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.13 per barrel, -0.12 (-0.23%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.48 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.04.  In other economic news, Staples offers $2.1 billion to buy Office Depot.  Still awaiting a reply.
  74. 2021 Monday L: Noted legal scholar Alan Dershowitz tells Newsmax TV that ‘once President Donald J. Trump leaves office, it is impossible to impeach him on anything after the fact.’  He also points out that there is not enough time for the Democrats and their RINO stooges to impeach the 45th president.  No wonder the Democrats want to see Newsmax sent packing along with One America News.  Meanwhile, liberal bigwigs are calling for the compilation of lists so that all personnel who worked for President Trump can be branded with the scarlet letter so they can never work again or participate in civil society.  What has happened to our country?
  75. 2021 Monday M: The worst governor in the history of California- the Loser-nator Arnold Schwarzenegger- says that President Trump is the worst president in the history of the country.  Arnold, go to perdition! Meanwhile, President Donald Trump awards Congressman Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, the Congressional Medal of Freedom.  Elsewhere, freshman Congresswoman Ashley Hinson, R-IA, demands House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi to stop delivery of China Daily newspaper to every congressional office.  WTF?  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, they now say they might ‘let some of the World Health Organization investigators seeking info on the Xi Jinping Bat Flu entry into their totalitarian country.
  76. 2021 Monday N: Archaeologists in Mexico discover more than 100 mammoth skeletons in an excavation.  Meanwhile, two gorillas in the San Diego Zoo test positive for the Kung Flu.  Elsewhere, NASA extends missions to Jupiter and Mars through at least 2022 after seeing noteworthy progress in their exploration efforts.  We hope ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden won’t gut the space agency as he and his former boss did in 2009.  Next, an Idaho internet provider announces it’s going to block both Facebook and Twitter beginning on Wednesday.  Finally, more than 100,000 Americans along the Gulf Coast are without power as a feisty winter storm batters the area. 
  77. 2021 Monday O: New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo now is crying about the economic devastation affecting the Empire State, looking into the camera, telling the dwindling number of viewers who continue paying attention to this ignoramus, that ‘we must reopen or there will be nothing to reopen ever again.’  What the hell does this flipping POS think?  Governor Cuomo and his twin moron, NYC Mayor Bill Di Blasio have ruined a great state and ruined a once-world-class city in their fight to defy President Trump.  They also have caused tens of thousands of COVID-19 vaccines to end up in the garbage.   Lock both of these slope-headed morons up.
  78. 2021 Monday P: End of the Night News- after having a good week last week, Bitcoin plummets by 20-percent, settling at $32,000 after being at $40,000 last week.   Speaking of losers, Twitter loses $5 billion in stock value after trashing Donald Trump and blaming him for the Antifa-caused riots on Capitol Hill last Wednesday.  Meanwhile, Abbott receives FDA clearance for a blood test that will help diagnose concussions faster than and less costly than brain scans.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

One of the more interesting English bands is UFO, a band that formed in London in the late 1960s with Phil Mogg (vocals), Mick Bolton (guitars), Pete Way (bass), and Andy Parker (drums and percussion).  One of the original hard rock-heavy metal bands, they paved the way for loads of other likeminded bands to follow.  Their first album, the self-titled, “UFO,” came out on July 15, 1970 and set the stage for what was to come.  For a debut album, it didn’t do well but such were the ways of record companies.  They might sign a band, toss them some coin, have them record an album as quickly as possible, throw out several singles to see if the fans would bite and alas, in the UK, it did not do well but in Germany, it did quite well.  This is a fascinating album for hard rock fans and we hope you will check it out as it definitely is worth owning.

ENDNOTES:


[i] We look forward to doing the Clash but expect to do Supertramp first, then Pink Floyd, then Electric Light Orchestra/the Move, then Yes, and then perhaps the Clash.  They are among the amazing British rock bands of the 1970s and deserve to be acknowledged as such.

[ii] Sadly, Detective was a short-lived band but one that had the potential to be as legendary as Led Zeppelin, if only Disco was not trashing the airwaves.  You will find their three albums on: (1) Tuesday, 29-July-2014, (2) Thursday, 31-July-2014, and (3) Friday, 01-August-2014.  We hope you will seek them out.

[iii] We hope to offer the music of Dire Straits sometime in 2021-2022.  Please stay tuned.

[vi] 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.

  57. 2020 Wednesday: As RINO Republicans continue pushing President Donald J. Trump aside so they can return to ‘business as usual’ (the COVID-19 Relief/Stimulus Bill’s extraordinary price tag is a prime example), President Trump vows that Senator John Thune, part of GOP leadership in the upper house, will face a primary challenger.  He and his boss, Mitch McConnell deserve to lose their seats.  Regarding the $750 billion Defense Bill, the president suggests he is likely to veto that bi-partisan disaster, too- update, HE DID VETO IT because restrictions on Big Tech are not included.  Meanwhile, the president continues blasting the COVID-19 Relief/Stimulus bill criticizing HOW Americans are being shafted with measly $600 checks when ILLEGAL ALIENS are going to get $1,800 apiece as well as all the nations that will be receiving aid that should be going directly to the American people.
  58. 2020 Wednesday A: Regarding the preceding section, progressives in the House and Senate back Donald J. Trump on wanting more money for the American people.  House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi urges the 45th president to force the GOP to up the ante going to the American people as relief/stimulus to $2,000 per adult.  However, the decrepit, angry old bag won’t cut the pork so apparent in the bill out and throw it in the wastebasket. 
  59. 2020 Wednesday B: ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden shares an uplifting message with the nation, that ‘our darkest days lay ahead.’  They sure do, IF YOU are in the White House because you are in the pocket of Xi Jinping, you worthless POS.  NOT OUR PRESIDENT!  Speaking of ‘Beijing Biden,’ he says the ‘Russian hack is not under control and that President Donald J. Trump must do something about it NOW.’  Vladimir Putin says in reply, there will be ‘nothing good’ under a “Pro-China Joe” Biden administration (says one communist to another).   Elsewhere, New York City- under the control of stoned moron Mayor Bill Di Blasio- leads the nation in population loss as more people abandon the dying city for greener pastures in other parts of the country.
  60. 2020 Wednesday C: British Prime Minister Boris Johnson- BoJo to his friends and family- eyes greater lockdowns on the British people using the NEW STRAIN of the Chi-Com bat flu as his excuse.  Speaking of Great Britain, Brexit is not going well because the Xi Jinping Virus has slowed down talks between the UK and the EU.  Go figure.  Regarding the Wuhan Virus Crisis, Pfizer says it will supply the U.S. with another 100,000,000 doses of its Kung Flu vaccine by July 2021.  Next, Google says it warned scientists NOT to share information on race, gender, and facial analysis operations conducted at the corrupt search engine giant, one run by a Punjabi POS named Sundar Pichai.  The man and his family should face immediate deportation.
  61. 2020 Wednesday D: Georgia Republican Congressman Jody Hice, 10th congressional district, says that Senate Majority Leader (and noted RINO) Mitch McConnell, KY, must tell senators to get aboard with the upcoming challenges to the presidential election next month.  Flabby old Mitch- married to the daughter of a Chi-Com shipping tycoon does not seem to want to stand by his president but would rather move on.  Good for you, congressman.  Speaking of Georgia, Republican Governor Brian Kemp says a report will be forthcoming regarding the state’s signature audit results.  We shall see.   Elsewhere, the corrupt FBI says that Iran is the party responsible for encouraging violence against politicians who denied there was any election fraud.  Hmmm…someone wants to get nuked!
  62. 2020 Wednesday E: Last week, there were 803,000 new jobless claims.   Meanwhile, FHFA- the Federal Housing Finance Agency- housing prices went up by a whopping 10.2-percent compared to last year.  Speaking of which, housing prices rose 3.1-percent in the 3rd quarter, UP 7.8-percent over last year.  Meanwhile, a blast of unknown origin in a multi-story building in Baltimore, Maryland, injures 21 and collapses the roof.  Authorities are investigating…
  63. 2020 Wednesday F: The UN Human Rights Office blasts Trump for having pardoned four U.S. military contractors employed by Blackwater Worldwide doing time in a federal prison for having whacked numerous Iraqi ‘civilians’ in a free fire incident back in 2007 during the war in that s-hole country.  What happened in Baghdad’s Nisoor Square was an assault on a convoy which lead to the contractors fighting back.  Given sentences of 12 years to life, they should NEVER have been in prison in the first place, morons.  Get the U.S. out of the U.N.
  64. 2020 Wednesday G: It’s official: Andrew Yang is going to run against highly unpopular New York City Mayor Bill Di Blasio for his seat.  We think Yang might be the guy.  Although a liberal, he has common sense and business knowledge.  Everyone HATES Di Blasio and we suspect he will be out on his butt cheeks. Elsewhere, we are sad to say that we heard of the passing of Chef Brian’s second wife, Kay Langer Carrick.  She passed away last night.  Rest in peace, Kay, rest in peace.
  65. 2020 Wednesday H: Here are the latest stats for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, straight out of the fetid bowels of the world’s lone communist semi-superpower: 78,551,622 confirmed cases, UP by 749,901 cases, 1,727,556 confirmed deaths, UP by 14,447 deaths, and 44,225,515 confirmed recoveries, UP by 330,612 recoveries from yesterday’s figures.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 18,609,072 confirmed cases, UP by 211,892 new cases, 329,172 confirmed deaths, UP by 3,556 new deaths, and 8,225,571 confirmed recoveries, UP by 90,156 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: 384,728 confirmed cases, 3,141 confirmed deaths, and 351,780 confirmed recoveries.
  66. 2020 Wednesday H: 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: 1,968,430 confirmed cases, 23,284 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 20,749 confirmed cases, 285 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: 232,284 confirmed cases, 3,214 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, Michigan, where that dingbat governor Gretchen Whitmer rules with an iron fist: 508,449 confirmed number of cases, 12,415 confirmed deaths, and sadly, no mention of the confirmed number of recoveries- thank you.   Speaking of the Yellow Fever 2020, the ignoramus homicidal governor of New York- Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo is whining and sniveling that his fellow Democrats in the nation’s capital are not sending him MORE COVID-19 Chi-Com Bat Flu Virus relief dollars he can stuff into his pockets.  As President Gerald R. Ford said to New York City in 1975 when they were begging for a federal government bailout to save them then, “DROP DEAD.”
  67. 2020 Wednesday I:  2020 Wednesday E: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,128.83, UP 114.32 points (+0.38%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,771.11, DOWN 36.80 points (-0.29%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,690.01, UP 2.75 points (+0.75%).  The price of GOLD is $1,877.30 per troy oz., -0.80 (-0.04%) while the price of SILVER is $25.78 per troy ounce, -0.146 (-0.56%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,019.50 per troy oz, +2.40 (+0.24%) while the price of COPPER is $3.55 per pound, -0.006 (-0.17%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,339.10 per troy oz, +16.00 (+0.69%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $47.95 per barrel, -0.17 (-0.35%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.54 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.04.
  68. 2020 Wednesday J: President Donald J. Trump continues with more pardons and sentence commutations today, 25 at last count.  Charles Kushner, son-in-law Jared Kushner’s father, friend Roger Stone, former campaign manager Paul Manafort, among others.  Leftist hack and serial abuser of those whom he is investigating- Andrew Weissman- the so-called ‘pit bull’ of Robert S. Mueller III is screeching like a banshee that President Trump is abusing the pardon system.  Wah, wah, wah.  Hopefully, we see you in an orange jumpsuit one day, Mr. Weissman, POS.
  69. 2020 Wednesday K: Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto #3519 with a $17 million jackpot at stake: 01, 12, 15, 23, 33, and 19.  Out 101,365 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers for a prize of $18,133 apiece.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #805 with a $321 million jackpot up for grabs: 06, 13, 38, 39, 53, and Power 06.  Out of 108,248 winning tickets, the highest winners were 54 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $539 apiece.
  70. 2020 Wednesday L:  Please stick around to discover what the Chi-Coms and all their tools are up to today- you know they are up to something seeing as how they have their Democratic stooges in the U.S. to carry out their orders…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Following Peter Wolf’s untimely departure from the J. Geils Band, the remaining members- John “J.” Geils (guitars), Seth Justman (keyboards/vocals), Danny Klein (bass/vocals), Stephen Jo Bladd (drums/vocals), and “Magic Dick” (harmonicas/saxophones)- released a final album, “You’re Getting Even While I’m Getting Odd.”  As with any group abandoned by their lead vocalist- a well-known front man for any group- the fire has left the furnace.  Still, it’s an admirable effort and even put one single onto the charts at No. 63- “Concealed Weapons.”  One must wonder had Justman not panned the new songs Wolf brought to the band, if they could have done them and kept the band together?  Ah well, it is what it is. Folks, this is a fine close to a stellar career, one that took a long time to create and then when the band arrived at the pinnacle, it all fell apart.  We hope you will seek this album out and consider adding it to your collection.  We think you will enjoy it as much as we do.

ENDNOTES:


[i] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.  This presentation included the Jefferson Starship, too, of which, the artist was NOT a member.

[ii] We promoted the music of Hot Tuna beginning on Tuesday, 24-April-2012 through Thursday, 23-May-2012.

[iii] We promoted the music of Spooky Tooth, Mott the Hoople, and Widowmaker- among other interconnected bands beginning on Friday, 25-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We hope you will check out this collection of great rock music.  Even the worst albums among them beats the crap out of any bull crap music one hears today.

[iv] We look forward to promoting the music of Aerosmith one day.  We hope within the next 8-10 years.  Remain vigilant.

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

[vi] We promoted the music of Genesis, as well as of the individual members, beginning on Tuesday, 02-April-2019 through Sunday, 15-September-2019.  We hope you will check them out and enjoy. 

[vii] We promoted the First Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award in 2018 and in 2019, we are working on the Second Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award.  Beria was a scumbag, a murderer, a rapist, someone who did the dirty work of his boss, Josef Stalin, and took extraordinary pride in doing much of it himself.  The award determines who most deserves similar treatment- kidding, folks, just kidding, as what Beria dished out in his heyday, lead to the back of the head in the bowels of the Lubyanka Prison.  This is a humorous award so please do not get your panties in a wad.

[viii] We look forward to promoting the music of the archetypal American rock band, the Beach Boys, sometime within the next five years or so.  Please keep posted for that day.  Thank you.

[ix] If we are still alive and doing the blog in 20 years or so, we hope to get to the infamous Pussy Riot.  You go, girls, you go, keep speaking out against the dictatorial scum trashing your country.

BB. 1942 Friday: On the eighth day of the Battle of El Alamein in North Africa, fresh Australian troops assault the Afrika Korps defenses. On the Eastern Front, the bloodbath in Stalingrad continues. General Zhukov on the eastern side of the Volga River continues funneling just enough reinforcements to General Chuikov in the city to keep the Germans to continue committing more and more troops into the fray while ignoring their supply lines and their Axis allies thin lines north and south of the city. The Russians are waiting for a freeze that when it happens will enable the tanks to have mobility of movement when the counteroffensive begins.

  54. 2012 Tuesday: Approximately 30 small- and- mid-sized communities in Argentina are banding together to produce a strategy by which, they can combat Climate Change-Global Warming-Extreme Weather.  Congratulations on a fantastic job of virtue-signaling.
  55. 2013 Wednesday: Tsakhiagiin Elbegdorj, the president of Mongolia, becomes the first head of state to visit with Kim Jong-un in North Korea since he became Supreme Leader.  Meanwhile, in Germany, Pete Haycock—guitarist/vocalist with the British rock band, Climax Blues Band[vii]—dies from a heart attack.    Elsewhere, a report suggests that the NSA is breaking into Google and Yahoo databanks, datamining everything the surveillance agency can.  This is not good. 
  56. 2014 Thursday: Iraqi troops find a mass grave with 150 corpses of Sunni tribesmen who fought back against the ISIS garbage.  Meanwhile, Kurdish forces approach Kobani as they continue fighting against the jihadist scum threatening the peace of the region.  Meanwhile, Syrian government air forces kill at least 200 civilians on the ground which leads U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel to suggest that Coalition airstrikes may have the adverse reaction of aiding the Syrian government rather than the Syrians opposed to the Assad regime.
  57. 2015 Friday: The Obama administration announces it will send U.S. ground troops to fight ISIS in Syria.  Had the administration kept troops in Iraq instead of pulling them out posthaste and leaving all our military equipment there, ISIS would indeed have been the “JV team” that Obama labeled it as.
  58. 2016 Sunday: FBI Director James “The Saint” Comey[viii] reopens the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s ‘missing emails’ approximately one week out from Election Day.  Everyone is curious as to why this corrupt POS would do such a thing, especially the Clinton campaign.   Elsewhere, Saudi-led coalition aircraft attack Houthi rebels in Yemen killing at least 60 of the scumbags.  Keep killing them.  Meanwhile, in Game 5 of the World Series, the Chicago Cubs beat the Cleveland Indians by a score of 3-2.     
  59. 2017 Monday: After former Trump associates Paul Manafort and Rick Gates surrender to the FBI, Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III, aka the Boy Scout, announces his first indictments in the Trump-Russia Collusion investigation.  (In 2020, following a failed impeachment, the world would learn that the entire thing was a sham and that the Democrats were running a coup).  Elsewhere, on Capitol Hill, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and U.S. Secretary of Defense James “Mad Dog” Mattis tell lawmakers they believe the Trump administration has the right to wage war on ANYONE around the globe suspected of terrorism.  Sounds like these two goobers are seeking avenues by which, they can wage endless wars, something against which, President Trump fought.
  60. 2018 Tuesday: President Donald J. Trump says he is looking at ways of ending ‘birthright citizenship’ in the U.S. where ANYONE born in the country- regardless of citizenship or immigration status (meaning ILLEGAL ALIENS) automatically become U.S. citizens.  Friends, this should have happened decades ago as we have a national industry by which illegals cross our borders and foal their calves.  This must stop NOW.
  61. 2019 Wednesday: Across the state of California, massive wildfires continue burning down vast stretches of the state.  Flames are threatening the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library as fire crews struggle to contain them.  More than 30,000 people have had to flee their homes.  Liberals screech about “CLIMATE CHANGE!  GLOBAL WARMING!  EXTREME WEATHER!  WE ONLY HAVE 2-3 YEARS BEFORE THE PLANET DIES.”  Yet, north of Washington state and south of California into Mexico, NO fires blaze away.  Conservatives say, “Let’s do proper forest management and water conservation.”  Plain and simple.  Elsewhere, in a decisive Game 7 of the 2019 World Series, the Washington Nationals beat the Houston Astros 6-2 in Houston, winning their first championship and also becoming the first team to win four road games.  They lost all three at home in Washington, D.C.   The Willie Mays Most Valuable Player Award goes to pitcher Stephen Strasburg for his two winning performances but especially his Game 6 performance pitching into the 8th inning.   Meanwhile, on Capitol Hill, 50 youthful climate change activists (alarmists) stage a sit-in at House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s office.  Stop wasting your time, kids, the speaker cares nothing about you.  
  62. 2020 Friday: Former Green Bay Packers quarterback and Super Bowl champion Brett Favre endorses President Donald J. Trump.  Elsewhere, we learn that 25 legislators are pressuring Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to pack the U.S. Supreme Court as soon as the Dems regain control of the U.S. Senate which they anticipate doing soon.  Moving on, Hostess Twinkie Don Lemon on CNN calls Trump supporters ‘drug addicts,’ that he has to cut many people lose and until they hit rock bottom and ask for help, he wants nothing to do with them.  Wow.  Business Insider reports that legions of journalists are donating to Democratic candidates, something media organizations used to discourage but nowadays, seemingly promote.
  63. 2020 Friday A: White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany says that Wall Street donations to “Pro-China Joe” Biden are ‘befuddling.’  Biden plans on taxing Wall Street banks out of existence with the appointment of Sen. Liz Warren, D-Massachusetts, to Treasury secretary.  That woman wants to dish out a whole lotta payback.  Elsewhere, in Minnesota, a federal appeals court upends the state’s plan on extending mail-in voting and registration times.  Down in Florida, early voting sites close down due to spikes in COVID-19 cases.  Meanwhile, the “Baby Evita,” AOC, aka Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (real name: Sandy Cortez), a day after appearing on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine in a $14,000 wardrobe ensemble that drove some Republicans to point out the hypocrisy exhibited by the socialist skank leads her to say to them, “Drink some water and don’t be a racist.”  Uh, okay.  We hope you lose on Tuesday. 
  64. 2020 Friday B: President Donald J. Trump is stumping the campaign trail holding 14 rallies in 3 days.  Meanwhile, decrepit old “Pro-China Joe” Biden is going to states that should be locks for him because they are leaning towards Trump.  Going to be a hot and heavy finish.  Meanwhile, RNC chairperson Ronna McDaniel says Republicans are winning the early voting turnout as GOPPERS are flocking to the polls expecting riots, assaults, and even homicide on Election Day in many parts of the country.
  65. 2020 Friday C: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 45,466,721 confirmed cases, +561,201, 1,186,913, confirmed deaths, +7,702, and 30,583,602 confirmed recoveries, +380,131.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 9,129,855 confirmed cases, up 86,485 from yesterday’s reporting, 233,117 confirmed deaths, UP 923, and 5,531,311 confirmed recoveries, UP 16,728.  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: 928,240 confirmed cases, 17,581 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 15,046 confirmed cases, 216 confirmed deaths, and 11,682 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 110,777 confirmed cases, 2,463 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 308,840 confirmed cases, 2,329 confirmed deaths, and 290,130 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other state: Texas- currently, they have 941,851 confirmed cases, 18,373 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries- por que?
  66. 2020 Friday D: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 26,501.60, DOWN 157.51 points (-0.59%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  10,911.59, DOWN 274.00 points (-2.45%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,269.96, DOWN 40.15 points (-1.21%).  Price of GOLD: $1,878.80 per troy oz., -1.10 (-0.06%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $23.72 per troy oz., +0.069 (+0.29%).  Price of PLATINUM: $847.00 per troy oz., -1.40 (-0.17%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,217.20 per troy oz., +18.70 (+0.85%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.05 per #, +0.003 (+0.10%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $35.72, -0.07 (-0.20%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.69 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.86 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.73 Afghan afghani.
  67. 2020 Friday E: A Connecticut judge says that Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel, a nephew of Robert F. Kennedy’s widow, Ethel, will not face another trial after spending years in prison for the murder of Martha Moxley, decades ago.  Controversy has forever swirled around this case as many believe that since he is a relative of the legendary Kennedy Family, that he was unfairly targeted for the murder of the 15-year-old Moxley at one of the family’s seaside residences back in 1975.  Some suspect that the so-called “Lion of the Senate”- Senator Teddy Kennedy- might have had a hand in it and Skakel paid the price.  The prosecutor says the case cannot be proven beyond the shadow of a doubt and so Skakel will emerge a free man after 45 years in the slammer.  Good for you. 
  68. 2020 Friday F: Tens of thousands of members of the so-called ‘religion of peace’ are protesting in streets across North Africa, the Middle East, and Asia protesting France’s crackdown on Muslim extremists following the murders of three women- one beheaded- in the Basilica of Notre Dame in Nice.  France through stupid policies that have allowed in armies of people who will never become ‘French’ has led to them going berserk whenever they perceive someone has criticized their backward faith.  Look, undergo a flipping reformation already and join the modern world.  Congratulations, France, for doing what must be done.
  69. 2020 Friday G: Texas voters have cast more than 9 million early votes which is more than the entirety of the votes cast in the Lone Star State back in 2016.  The Democrats are doing everything possible to flip Texas from RED to BLUE using any means necessary.  Meanwhile, Sen. Elizabeth Warren wants the U.S. Treasury secretary’s gig when “Pro-China Joe” Biden wins on November 3, while crackpot Senator Bernie Sanders wants to be the Labor secretary.  Failed loser Beto O’Rourke wants to be the ‘gun-grabber czar’ while Congresswoman Sandy Cortez wants to be the head of the Climate Change Bureau so she can take away the rights of the American people.   Speaking of the upper crust, Lori Loughlin, best-known for the old show, “Full House,” reported to a federal prison near Dublin, California, to begin her two-month stint for having bribed their daughters into USC.  When she’s out, hubby Mosimmo Giannulli, will report to the federal pen to do his five-month stint.  Poor bastard paid half-a-million bucks to get their daughters into the University of Southern California by having them pose as FAKE ROWERS.  Wow.
  70. 2020 Friday H: Here are the numbers for the Mega Millions #1603 with a jackpot of $118 million on the line: 14, 19, 34, 39, 59 and Mega 11.  The highest winner was one person who had four numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $16,660.
  71. 2020 Friday I: As Election Day draws near, we know the Chi-Coms and their Democratic stooges are working hard to steal this election from the American people.  We hope you will stick around for updates on the Chi-Vi as well as whatever we uncover the Beijing bullies and their running dog patsies are up to…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Jeff Lynne’s Electric Light Orchestra released their next studio album, “Alone in the Universe” on November 13, 2015.  Jeff Lynne performs most of the instruments with a few extra musicians adding additional flavor.  Critics reviewed the album favorably and fans were excited that the group was back in some semblance of being.  Say what you will, bands that began back in the late 1960s or early 1970s and then broke up and reformed are never as exciting as they were in their heyday but hey!  Lifelong fans tend to revel when ANY newer music appears which is why we encourage everyone to visit Amazon.com or whomever else you do for the absolute best in rock music.  Remember this one simple maxim: anything from the bands of the 1960s or 1970s beats any of this anemic he-she crap modern-day bands foist on us.  Period.

FOOTNOTES:

[i] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane, the Jefferson Starship, Starship, and of the various bands’ members beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.  Please look for them and enjoy.  Sadly, we failed to do the music of the Great Society at the time or that of various members’ solo catalogs.  We hope to rectify that mistake one day so please stay tuned.

[ii] We presented another series of interconnected bands which included Free, Bad Company, Led Zeppelin, the Firm, Mott the Hoople, Ian Hunter, the Yardbirds, and a plethora of solo and group efforts beginning on Wednesday, 02-July-2014 through Sunday, 19-October-2014.  We definitely hope that you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your growing collection.

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

[iv] We hope to share the music of the Eagles, Joe Walsh, Don Henley, Glenn Fray, and others, including Poco, sometime in the next decade.  Please remain with us.

[v] See previous footnote.

[vi] We began promoting the music of the Steve Miller Band beginning on Wednesday, 27-July-2011 through Wednesday, 24-August-2011 and then did a second stint on Sunday, 20-April-2014.  We hope you will check the music of this amazing San Francisco, California, acid-rock blues band.

[vii] We began promoting the music of the greatest British blues rock band, the Climax Blues Band, beginning on Monday, 16-September-2019 through Sunday, 27-October-2019.  This included the solo efforts of Pete Haycock and Colin Cooper.  We hope you will check them out and add them to your collection.

[viii] Many people speculate as to WHY Comey would reopen the investigation into Hillary’s missing emails so close to the Election?  Was it because he was demonstrating HIS POWER to Hillary that IF she failed to keep him on at best or worst for the American people, make him the next Attorney-General of the United States that he could destroy her?  Yes, the FBI ‘discovered Anthony Weiner’s laptop with information on it besides the people with whom he was sexting but why would a Deep State maggot like Comey do this to a person whom he wanted to serve?  We await answers…

U. 1942 Sunday: Adolf Hitler orders the execution of all Allied commandoes captured by Axis troops. On the Eastern Front, the German Sixth Army is extremely close to cutting the last Soviet defenders to pieces as they begin encircling the Red October and Barricades Tractor Factories. This is the final push as the first flurries of snow begin to drop. Sludge ice continues coming down the Volga River. The Sixth Army’s offense continues grinding on, eating up bodies on both sides.

  55. 2020 Sunday: Health and Human Services Secretary Hank Azar says that ‘mask resistance is a problem for Western democracies’ when it comes to dealing with the notorious Chi-Vi.  Meanwhile, in a belated effort to show the FBI is not in the tank for the Democrats (and perhaps as a way by which, FBI Director Chris Wray can save his job), the feds announce they are investigating Hunter Biden’s laptop and emails for signs of foreign interference and involvement.’  Speaking of Hunter’s father, “Pro-China Joe” Biden, recent polls show the aged, senile presidential nominee is dropping in the polls. 
  56. 2020 Sunday A: South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem invites all law enforcement officers who have been vilified in their home cities to relocate to her state.  Elsewhere, Pennsylvania announces it has rejected the astounding number of 372 thousand ballots for errors.  Could they be GOP ballots kicked to the curb or could they be Democratic ballots in which, all sorts of electoral shenanigans are ongoing?  We shall see… Elsewhere, we learn a disturbing figure about California’s recent spate of wildfires, 1 million acres destroyed in a single month.  A SINGLE MONTH.  People, if you want change in the Golden State, vote out EVERY FLIPPING DEMOCRAT in every election; otherwise, the once prosperous state will continue dying.
  57. 2020 Sunday B: We have a disturbing statistic to share with the readers today: Judicial Watch reports that 353 counties of the nation’s 3,141 counties in 29 of 50 states have 1.8 million more registered voters than residents.  The biggest states are Alaska, Colorado, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, Rhode Island, and Vermont, these states being among the worst as having voter totals exceeding 100-percent of residents.  What do these states have in common with the exception of the first one?  They are ALL BLUE STATES where Democrats hold power.  Friends, we must fight fire with fire and we must crush the Democrats like insects.
  58. 2020 Sunday C: Here are today’s NFL scores beginning with a recap of Thursday Night Football’s game: (1) Kansas City Chiefs, 32 (4-1) @ Buffalo Bills, 16 (4-1).  Here are today’s games: (2) Chicago Bears, 23 (5-1) @ Carolina Panthers, 16 (3-3).  (3) Cincinnati Bengals, 27 (1-4-1) @ Indianapolis Colts, 31 (4-2).  (4) Cleveland Browns, 7 (4-2) @ Pittsburgh Steelers, 38 (5-0).  (5) Washington Redskins, 19 (1-5) @ New York Giants, 20 (1-5).  (6) Detroit Lions, 34 (2-3) @ Jacksonville Jaguars, 16 (1-5).  (7) Houston Texans, 36 (1-5) @ Tennessee Titans, 42 (5-0).  (8) Atlanta Falcons, 40 (1-4) @ Minnesota Vikings, 23 (1-4).  (9) Baltimore Ravens, 27 (4-1) @ Philadelphia Eagles, 29 (1-3-1).  (10) New England Patriots, 12 (2-3) @ Denver Broncos, 18 (2-3).  (11) New York Jets, 0 (0-6) @ Miami Dolphins, 24 (3-3). (12) Green Bay Packers, 10 (4-1) @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 38 (4-2).  Tonight: (13) Los Angeles Rams, 16 (4-2) @ San Francisco 49ers, 24 (3-3).
  59. 2020 Sunday D: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Yellow Bat Flu- the -so-called Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 39,803,562 confirmed cases, +300,653, 1,111,714, confirmed deaths, +5,009, and 27,353,713 confirmed recoveries, +205,703.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 8,249,935 confirmed cases, up 65,492 from yesterday’s reporting, 222,878 confirmed deaths, UP 734, and 5,025,528 confirmed recoveries, UP 24,845.  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: 876,549 confirmed cases, 16,982 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 14,101 confirmed cases, 186 confirmed deaths, and 10,995 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 102,854 confirmed cases, 2,339 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Alabama- currently, they have 172,626 confirmed cases, 2,788 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Kay Ivey for being ‘closed’ about their numbers.  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo is living there: 303,109 confirmed cases, 2,209 confirmed deaths, and 268,093 confirmed recoveries.
  60. 2020 Sunday E: Following the U.S. arrest of Chi-Com ‘researchers’ in the United States over visa fraud and for failure to disclose their close ties to the communist Chinese military, Beijing threatens to arrest and detain American citizens in the totalitarian country.  Elsewhere, in western Afghanistan, a suspected ISIS or possible Taliban suicide car bombing in the city of Ghor claims the lives of 13 and wounds another 130.  In the same country, after the Taliban launched a major offensive in Helmand Province and U.S. airstrikes threw them back, the Taliban accuses the U.S. of violating the ceasefire.  Light ‘em up.  Meanwhile, Iran celebrates the ‘end of the embargo’ as today was it under the Obama-negotiated agreement but the Trump administration says the re-imposed sanctions aren’t going anywhere. 
  61. 2020 Sunday F: The U.S. Supreme Court agrees to rule on the Trump administration’s attempt at banning illegal aliens from the 2020 Census.  They will hear arguments beginning on November 30 and are expected to rule sometime in late December or in early January.  Don’t count illegal aliens, NO country in the world would ever do such an insane thing.  Build the wall and deport them all.
  62. 2020 Sunday G: Stay tuned for further developments until we find out what the Chi-Coms and their milksop lackeys in the Democratic Party are up to toda.  YOU know they’ve been doing something…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On October 28, 2008, the Move released their next greatest hits package across the globe: “Anthology 1966-1972.”  Much more popular in the UK than they ever were in the United States, the album contained 62 essential tracks from throughout the group’s rather short career on four music-packed discs.  We hope you will check this one out and consider adding it to your collection because despite whatever you might have heard, this band was among the major acts upon which, future bands would lay their foundation.  Please seek it out and enjoy- you will be glad you did.
