  50. 2015 Saturday:  The jihadist attacks in France were the work of three terrorist teams- so says the government of France- and that it is an ‘ACT OF WAR BY ISIS.”  Law enforcement across the European continent continues rooting out the various jihadi rats and military strikes across Syria take on a new ferocious intensity.  Where is that POS Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.  Crucify the scumbag.
  51. 2016 Monday:  President-elect Donald J. Trump begins announcing people he plans to serve in his administration- Nikki Haley becoming UN ambassador and Dr. Ben Carson his HUD secretary. 
  52. 2017 Tuesday: As the citizens of Zimbabwe continue celebrating, the nation prepares to swear in its new President Emmerson Mnangagwa, their first new president in decades.  Congratulations.  Elsewhere, President Trump speaks up for Alabama Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore, a man being assailed by allegations of sexual improprieties as a youngster.
  53. 2018 Wednesday: As DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen continues receiving incoming flak for having told members of a massive illegal alien caravan trying to cross into the United States from Mexico that the ‘Trump administration would likely reject their claims of asylum.’  Such is being a member of the Trump team, constant ongoing attacks by crazed leftists.   Meanwhile, a federal judge in Mississippi strikes down the state’s new anti-abortion law.  Deep State interference once again.
  54. 2019 Thursday: After two more witnesses appeared before House Intel Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-CA, on the inquiry into impeaching Donald J. Trump, Schiff had to throw his hands up in resignation as once again, disaster befell the cretin.  The first witness, David Holmes (no relation to “Big John”), former counselor for the U.S. embassy in Kiev and the second witness, Dr. Fiona Hill, a Brit, former NSC director for Europe and Russia had nothing to add to the impeachment hopes of the Democrats.  In fact, within minutes, Chef Lilah Paulikovich suggested to @RepAdamSchiff on Twitter that he fall on his sword and take his senile House leader, Nancy Pelosi, down with him.  These hostile losers hate Trump so it’s ironic that their hatred will re-elect President Trump in a massive 2020 landslide.  Meanwhile, UNKNOWN Democratic presidential candidate, Mayor Wayne Messam[viii], of Miramar, Florida, dropped out of the race on this date.  He never appeared in a single Democratic Party debate and no one knew who the flip he was.
  55. 2020 Saturday: We learn that the Chi-Coms now blame Italy for having created the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, which is not surprising seeing as how the communist government in Beijing does not want the world blaming THEM for creating a virus from horseshoe bats and pangolins and then letting it ‘escape’ their Wuhan laboratory and to then infect the world.  The fact that the Italians are ignorant enough to participate in the Chi-Coms’ Belt and Roads Initiative makes them the perfect fall guys for the communists to blame.  Remember- they tried to blame the U.S. military for having snuck into Wuhan, let it loose there, and then to infect the rest of the world.  What a bunch of diabolic scumbags.  Speaking of the Chi-Vi, stocks have tumbled due to the possible return of stentorian COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions. 
  56. 2020 Saturday A: President Donald J. Trump is considering signing an executive order that will stop birthright citizenship for children born to illegal alien mothers on U.S. soil.  Christ, we need a constitutional amendment that lays out precisely what citizenship is because the Democratic Party and their RINO enablers want to give citizenship to the rest of the world.  Meanwhile, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is in Qatar today meeting with his counterparts as the Trump administration continues bringing peace to the Middle East.  Elsewhere, President Trump will be participating in the virtual G20 Summit today.  Finally, the CIA is awarding its cloud contract to a consortium of left-wing companies such as Microsoft, IBM, Google, Amazon.com, and others.  What is up with this?
  57. 2020 Saturday B: Speaking of the Chi-Vi, let us present to you the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox, communist China’s gift to the world and a boon for Democrats who want to exercise their fascist skills in locking down people’s lives like California’s hypocritical snowflake Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 57,974,667 confirmed cases, +547,309, 1,378,411, confirmed deaths, +8,644, and 37,073,704 confirmed recoveries, +342,274.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 12,142,989 confirmed cases, UP 156,640 from yesterday’s reporting, 259,283 confirmed deaths, UP 1,410, and 6,204,239 confirmed recoveries, UP 43,454.
  58. 2020 Saturday C: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 1,096,354 confirmed cases, 18,644 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 17,029 confirmed cases, 224 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 147,251 confirmed cases, 2,738 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Massachusetts- currently, they have 204,155 confirmed cases, 10,488 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries- we guess it is what it is.  Let’s look at Israel’s stats now that Mo is living there: 328,397 confirmed cases, 2,757 confirmed deaths, and 317,171 confirmed recoveries.
  59. 2020 Saturday D: As more evidence continues coming to light over how the Democratic Party and their Chi-Coms worked to rob President Donald J. Trump of the 2020 Presidential Election continues coming to light, the more we understand WHY the Democrats are so determined to ramrod this through like a Big John Holmes porno movie because they know that if the courts become involved and everything they’ve done comes to light, the more devastating it’s going to be both for this criminal, Marxist party and the Chi-Com leadership.  Imagine the Chi-Coms trying to blame Italy for a disease they manufactured in a biowarfare laboratory in Wuhan, China.  In our view, we should nuke both the Chi-Coms and the Canadians for our northern neighbor’s participation in the plot to remove President Donald J. Trump- Moses Scharbug III.
  60. 2020 Saturday E: ISIS claims responsibility for a mortar attack that dropped 23 shells on a residential neighborhood in Kabul, Afghanistan killing at least 8 people and wounding another 31.  Some of the shells fell near the Iranian Embassy.   U.S. and Taiwan step up economic partnership by signing a five-year cooperation deal that will bring the two countries (we consider Taiwan a country) closer together and will increase trade between the two countries (although the Chi-Coms will not be happy; f**k them).  Finally, Twitter announces that on Inauguration Day, it will hand over accounts associated with the presidency and the White House to the incoming administration.  Accounts such as @POTUS, @FLOTUS, @WhiteHouse, and others will go to the Biden administration IF he truly becomes president.  Twitter also says they will work closely with the Biden administration.  Hmmm, about what?
  61. 2020 Saturday F: Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3510 with a jackpot of $8 million at stake: 08, 12, 16, 21, 41, AND Mega 20.  The highest winner was one person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $29,647.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #796 with a jackpot of $192 million up for grabs- 51, 54, 57, 60, 69, and Powerball 11.  The highest winners were 53 people who had four numbers for a prize of $387 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On September 05, 2006, Foreigner released a two-CD compilation album, “The Definitive Collection.’  In many ways, this is a great album to be sure in that it has songs pulled from the beginning through the end plus some of the solo gems of both Lou Gramm and Mick Jones.  Thus, this is historic look at this explosive band and its components which is why we encourage everyone to seek it out at your favorite site for musical greatness, as long as it’s not Alibaba and the Chi-Coms.  We are leading a boycott against the Chi-Coms, buy your music from American or European vendors, not the nation that sent the Chi-Vi around the globe to trash it.  We thank you.

[v] U.S. Circuit Court Judge Clement F. Haynsworth served on the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit.  He was born in Greenville, S.C., on 10-30-1912 and died on 11-22-1989 in the same city.  President Richard M. Nixon nominated him to fill the seat of Associate Justice Abe Fortas but Democrats fought hard to protect the seat of the liberal Fortas forcing the president to nominate someone less conservative than Haynsworth.

JTF: Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman self-nailed himself to his cross on Tuesday at the impeachment hearings- reminds me of a disgruntled former employee- oh, boohoo

Lt. Col. Vindman became all huffy and puffy when people did not address him by his title, which to me is laughable because everyone knows the American left despises the U.S. military and does everything to belittle its ranking members and to punish enlisted men and women for anything they deem to be a war crime- since when is killing the enemy a ‘war crime.’ Thank God our president is pardoning military members from lengthy prison sentences for doing their jobs.

FALL SESSION 2019

 

BLOG POST #3,308 AT THE AICP-END

 

350 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020

 

In the end, Trump lovers will continue loving Trump and Trump haters will continue hating Trump leaving a small group in the middle to determine the course forward…

Century City, CA 90067, 11-21-2019 Thursday:  Did you know the Democrat candidates had a debate last night?  Big deal, nothing to discuss there.  It was as exciting as was the impeachment hearings put on by Little Adam Schiff, beginning Tuesday.  Look, I like a good impeachment hearing like everyone else but what we are seeing (besides being a snooze-fest) is akin to disgruntled employees at an HR meeting bitching about their boss, their NEW boss.  Sob, wail, boohoo, snivel, snort, and whine.  Geez, I cannot take it, it is driving me batty, especially with that pudgy-faced POS Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman.  What a loser.  Like Chuck Connors in “Branded,”[i] he should be stripped of his uniform, his sword broken, and his butt booted outside the fort.

What I gather from watching this farce when I arrive home at night (thank God for DVR’s, folks), I discover that I do not need any sleep enhancements, no Nyquil®, no brandy, or no medical marijuana.  The hearings are so boring that within 30 minutes, I am snoozing like a log, deep in sleep, it reminds me of how we hold employee reviews or listen to their complaints.  Boring stuff to be sure but stuff the law requires us to undergo in order to mete out pay raises or address fellow employee complaints or infractions of the rules.

Lt. Col. Vindman to me is pretentious, a sniveler, and a disaster.  Right from the very beginning of his opening statement, he sought to self-nail himself to the cross.  He told his mommy and daddy in his opening remarks not to worry because he was going to tell the truth (or whatever stupid stuff he actually said- I’m going by memory here, folks), which sounded a lot like a major bitch-fest by a crybaby.

Everyone bawling and whining about how the president of the United States was sidestepping their ‘talking points,’ about how the president was attempting to chart his own foreign policy course, which, by the way, remains the job of the president to set and then see to it that his underlings carry out his directions.

Lt. Col. Vindman became all huffy and puffy when people did not address him by his title, which to me is laughable because everyone knows the American left despises the U.S. military and does everything to belittle its ranking members and to punish enlisted men and women for anything they deem to be a war crime- since when is killing the enemy a ‘war crime.’   Thank God our president is pardoning military members from lengthy prison sentences for doing their jobs.

That said, we had to suffer through National Security Council hack Vindman, a disgrace to the uniform, as well as a former aide to Vice President Mike Pence, horse-face Jennifer Williams[ii].  Wah-wah-wah, everyone is upset that the president didn’t follow what they claim to be set-in-stone U.S. policy towards Ukraine.

Again, President Trump is the man who sets foreign policy for the nation, not his predecessor, so the Obama foreign policy- as f**ked up as it was- no longer applies, the Trump foreign policy applies and goobers such Lt. Col. Vindman, Ms. Williams, and then former Ukraine special envoy Kurt Volker and former NSC official Tim Morrison are charged with carrying out.

What’s more, the president can appoint someone to be his (or her) special envoy who comes from outside the State Department.  He (or she) can do this if they are wary that the people working in the Foreign Service will not carry out their orders or worse, will countermand them to something completely different than the original orders.

Who could blame President Trump dispatching his personal attorney, former Mayor Rudy Giuliani to check or double-check that his desires were getting through?  No one, as far as I can tell.

What is disturbing about all of this is that when the Republicans were hammering away at the pudgy little lieutenant-colonel, they discovered a damned important finding, something that immediately set Chairman Adam Schiff off.

It became clear to everyone not sawing logs that Vindman most likely was the source of the whistle-blower’s complaint- the whistleblower being one Eric Ciaramella, CIA officer assigned to the White House- which Mr. Schiff could not permit to come out as he still maintains he has NO clue as to whom the whistleblower is.

For a minute there, we thought we were going to see Schiff’s pathetic set of balls go splat on a tree stump when the big sledgehammer came down atop them with the force of the American people.  As nasty and as gnarly as that would be, millions of Americans immediately woke up and took note because we almost had the lying POS Schiff on the spot.

Of course, Congressman Schiff knows the identity of the whistle-blower as the ‘whistleblower’ ran to his staffers upon hearing the dirty laundry that Lt. Col. Vindman took him, so upset and so shocked by what he heard second-third-or-fourth-hand from the ‘notorious phone call’ as I think Schiff has labeled it.

A bright spot occurred later in the day when Congressman Mike Turner, R-OH, took to Adam Schiff via Ambassador Volker because someone needed to pummel this smug sleazebag upside the head.  All of these ‘lifers’ in federal government employ are denizens of the detestable swamp, the one the 45th president is working day and night to drain.

In the end, NOTHING is going to change for most Americans.  Trump lovers will continue loving him and Trump haters will continue hating him.  The folks in the middle, however, will begin moving one way or the other and I suspect many will move into the ‘lovers camp’ and away from that of the ‘haters.’

Too much money has been spent on a wild goose chase as has time, precious time, something we will never get back.  I get it, Schiff[iii] detests President Trump.  Ah, well, pull up your big-boy pants and Schiff, shit or get the hell off the pot.  Enough!

Rejoin me tomorrow for more exciting commentary on this and other topics like possibly…the debate.  Then again, we might have to smoke a bowl or two of crack (JUST KIDDING!) to be able to review that ship of fools.  See you in 24 hours.

[i] Great show from the 1960s; look for it.

[ii] This pathetic individual had her day in the Sun.  We will hear from her no more.

[iii] If only a President Francis Underwood existed.  This piece of dog crap would be floating in a canal, facedown, teeth yanked from his putrid mouth.  Ah, if only Hollywood mirrored real life.  Look for “House of Cards,” one of the world’s absolute best political shows.
