215. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 03, 2022

2022 Wednesday: Many pundits are speculating as to the REAL REASON for U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan. Sure, American politicians should be able to travel wherever and whenever they wish without being fearful of communist thugs like communist China or fascist hoodlums like Russia. Some such as Tucker Carlson, Eric Bolling, Chris Salcedo, and others speculate as to whether “Mumbles” Pelosi’s ill-timed visit is a false flag so the Chi-Coms can snatch up the islands to the west of Taiwan with which to then launch an invasion of Taiwan?

  57. 2020 Monday:  President Donald J. Trump signed an executive order today in which, he forbids American companies (Google comes to mind as does Microsoft and numerous other big tech firms) from hiring foreign scab workers to displace higher-paid American workers.  Far too often in today’s America, American firms force American workers to train foreign workers to do their jobs and then send them packing.  This is not right and what the president did today is amazing.  NO more displacing Americans with foreign scabs.  Enough is enough.  Meanwhile, the stats are in for shootings in Chicago over the weekend: at least 33 people shot, 9 slain- including a 9-year-old boy and when compared to last July in Chicago, murders in the Windy City in July are up 139-percent.  Elsewhere, in New York City, at this point in time, there have been more shootings than ALL of last year’s combined.  What the hell is up with these BIG BLUE CITIES?  Where the hell are Black Lives Matter, you know, the Marxist, racist organization?  We thought black lives ‘matter?’  Apparently not.

  68. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 133 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the flaming fiasco down along the U.S.-Mexico border and her 39th day since her one and only visit to the border.  Speaking of the ‘Border Czar,’ former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley says that Joe Biden “MUST fire” “Kooky Kamala” because she has no clue as to what the f**k she is doing.  Elsewhere, Grant Stinchfield reported on Newsmax this evening that the mayor of McAllen, Texas, Javier Villalobos, has declared a disaster as they are being overrun by thousands of illegal aliens with no end in sight.

Michael McCaul, R-TX 10th CD, says the Chi-Coms’ wailing and sniveling over the recent report is further proof of their duplicity in the crime of the century- unleashing the Chi-Vi on the world.  Rep. McCaul said it is ‘the worst cover-up in human history.’  No wonder the Beijing bullies are upset.  Speaking of the communists, Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, has once again called for moving the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics out of the authoritarian country and somewhere else to a more deserving country.   Rep. Tim Burchett, R-TN 2nd CD, says that the United States ‘must cut off communist China completely.’
  70. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News II– The Saudi foreign ministry has suggested that it won’t take part in the Abraham Accords.  Well, screw them.  Next, South Korea reports that the North Koreans want sanctions eased for them to return to direct talks with the United States.  Moving on, the Lebanese president is calling for an investigation into the Beirut blast that leveled much of the city a year ago tomorrow.  At least 204 people lost their lives while another 6,500 suffering injuries of varying degrees.  Tens of thousands more were made homeless in the space of a second.  Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken spoke with the Afghan president to see about ‘hastening along the peace negotiations with the Taliban.’  Mr. Secretary, the Taliban is overrunning the country, sir, how about helping them with air support?
  71. 2021 Tuesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The United States is donating another 110 million doses of the Chi-Com Virus vaccine abroad.  Hopefully, it’s the Johnson & Johnson crap.  In other Chi-Vi-related news, Florida’s schools have quickly rescinded their mask mandates for the upcoming school year after ‘America’s Governor’ Ron DeSantis threatened their funding.  NO MASKS for kids!  In fact, Governor Pete Ricketts, R-NE, says that ‘mask mandates and lockdowns are counterproductive.’

  74. 2021 Tuesday L: Joe Biden News I– Enfeebled Joe Biden believes that putting pressure on U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen G. Breyer to retire would harm the nation’s highest court and would politicize it.  Of course, the Democratic-Socialists reacted to this statement in the same way that Dracula would to a Crucifix and a vial of Holy Water. 
  75. 2021 Tuesday M: Joe Biden Regime News I– A new report regarding the Biden regime says that federal agencies do extraordinarily little to protect the data of U.S. citizens from being hacked by foreign adversaries. 
  76. 2021 Tuesday N: Political News I– The Democrats are at war with one another and the division within their hardcore-left-of-center party continues to grow.  Democrats are screeching and wailing over the end of the evictions moratorium which leads the rest of us to ask a scathing question of the liberal losers: YOU were giving people an extra 300 smackers on top of their unemployment so where the f**k did it go?  They weren’t paying their rent with the extra $1,200 per month.  This is crazy, landlords have bills, too, as do the people they hire to do the electrical work, the plumbing work, the reclamation work should the tenants to whom they have given housing trashed it.  Many people invest in rental properties to pay the bills and now, the Democrats are destroying that segment of the American economy along with numerous others.  Shame on them.
  77. 2021 Tuesday O: Political News II– Republican National Committee Chairperson Ronna McDaniel says that for Donald J. Trump to win in 2024, Republicans must win in 2022.  Next, many people now believe that the reason as to WHY New York AG Leticia James came out and trashed her boss, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov by listing his crimes as disgraced FBI Director James “Criminal” Comey did Hillary Rodham Clinton back in 2016 is that she wants to cripple him so she can run for his job and possibly win in 2022.  Now, that’s devious.  Still, the Albany County D.A. is now investigating Governor Cuomo so maybe someone else is going to do the dirty work for A.G. James.
  78. 2021 Tuesday P: Political News III– President Donald J. Trump’s attorney says that the Department of Justice ordering the Internal Revenue Service to hand over his client’s tax returns to the cretins in the U.S. Congress is occurring sans any evidence of wrongdoing.   Next, that crackpot scarecrow loser in the U.S. Senate- Elizabeth Warren, DS-MA,- says that ‘GOP voting laws are somehow connected to abortion.’  Say the flip what?  This woman is an angry loser.  Elsewhere, Governor J.B. Pritzker, DS-IL, says he is going to ‘enforce background checks on private gun sales.’  You should have been doing that already.  Moving on, the U.S. Senate voted to award ‘gold medals’ to the Capitol Hill cops who were at the Capitol on January 06, 2021.  What a load of crap.
  79. 2021 Tuesday Q: Political News IV– Grant Stinchfield of Newsmax lambasted the 18 Republicans who eagerly signed onto the $1.3 trillion ‘infrastructure bill.’  Again, here they are: Roy Blunt, R-MO; Richard Burr, R-NC; Shelley Moore Capito, R-WV; Bill Cassidy, R-LA; Mike Crapo; R-ID, James Risch, R-ID; Thom Tillis; R-NC; Todd Young, R-IN; Mike Rounds, R-SD; John Hoeven, R-ND, Kevin Cramer, R-ND; Lisa Murkowski, R-AK; Rob Portman, R-OH; Mitt Romney, R-UT; Susan Collins, R-ME; Chuck Grassley, R-IA; Lindsey Graham, R-SC; and “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, R-KY.  Here is some more of the crap contained within the ‘infrastructure bill’- $16.3 billion for ‘renewable energy’ program; $250 million for invasive plant elimination (how about for invasive human beings’ elimination, i.e., ILLEGAL ALIENS?), and $10 million per year for Motor Vehicle per-mile user fee program.  So now, the American people will be taxed per mile by local, state, and federal government?  There will be a new industry just as there is now with the manufacturing of vaccination ID cards, one in which, odometers will be reset and reset. 
  80. 2021 Tuesday R: Political News V– Tucker Carlson reported tonight from Budapest, Hungary, that the New York Times- the so-called ‘paper of record’- received millions of dollars from communist China to shill for the thugs in Beijing.  Islands that belong to Japan, they claimed belonged to the Chi-Coms as well as did everything to trash anyone who said that the Xi Jinping Bat Flu came from the Wuhan Institute of Virology was ‘xenophobic,’ a ‘racist,’ and/or a ‘bigot.’  Mr. Carlson said that the New York Times was not the only ‘news outlet’ to take Chi-Com yuan and then lie their asses off about anything their Beijing masters ordered them to do.  Wow.  Hence, ‘Chi-Coms good, Wuhan lab ‘innocent,’ and Donald J. Trump a ‘big, fat, evil racist.’  What a load of crap.
  81. 2021 Tuesday S: U.S. Senate News I– The U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee finally is seeking to repeal the 2002 use of military force in Iraq powers they gave to President George W. Bush.  Interested observers ask what took you so long to do this?  You should never have bestowed those powers on President Bush.  The AICPENDBLOG.COM believes, however, that the Deep State forced Bush’s hand into invading Iraq so everyone could rake in lots of bucks while then using the exact same war powers act to trash Bush #43.
  82. 2021 Tuesday T: Business News– In various parts of the United States, McDonalds Restaurants will require both employees and customers to mask up or to go across the street to Burger King.   Restaurants in New York City are going to require that ALL customers- with the blessings of outgoing NYC Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio- to show proof of vaccination, i.e., show their papers, otherwise, they cannot enter, sit down, and eat.  It would appear that the government is going to have private businesses do their dirty work just as they require employers to deduct payroll taxes from their workers’ salaries and then hand them over to government apparatchiks.  Well, there will always be restaurants that welcome all diners so it is important that we share names and locations in the same ways that hoboes of old shared whose house would provide one a meal and which house would not.
  83. 2021 Tuesday U: Special Election News– Tonight in the GOP primary race in Ohio’s 15th CD in a race to fill the vacant seat of former Rep. Steve Stivers, Donald J. Trump-backed candidate Mike Carey won big time.  Meanwhile, on the Democratic side of the aisle, state Rep. Allison Russo was projected to win the Democratic nomination.  The general election will be this November.  And they say Trump-backed candidates can’t win.  You win some, you lose some and Barack Hussein Obama has lost almost every endorsement he ever made- “Loser” with a capital “L.”
  84. 2021 Tuesday V: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– New York Attorney General Leticia James released the results of the probe into Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov and none of it looked good.  She would not commit to prosecuting the immoral chief executive and left it for others to do.  New York state Lt. Governor Kathy Hochul, Democrat, said today “NO one is above the law.”  Later in the day, Joe Biden called for the Empire State governor to ‘step down’ for his reprobate activities as did House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer.   Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st CD, called for the ‘immediate arrest’ of the immoral governor on grounds of criminal sexual harassment.  Good.  Lock him up.
  85. 2021 Tuesday W: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News II– However, Joe Biden is so out of it that he did not realize that as he was calling on his fellow Democratic-Socialist to step down, he opened the door for others to demand Mr. Biden step down due to his LONG HISTORY of groping, grabbing, smooching, rubbing, and saying all sorts of suggestive and disturbing things.  What is clear, too, is that AG James lacks the balls to pursue her boss, Governor “Killer” Cuomo.   Elsewhere, Missouri Governor Mike Parson has officially pardoned Mark and Patricia McCloskey for their ‘gun crimes convictions’ of last year.  Excellent.
  86. 2021 Tuesday X: Mass Shootings News– Two employees were wounded in a warehouse shooting in Tennessee.  Cops responding on scene shot the shooter.  Elsewhere, after some shots were fired outside the Pentagon, the entire facility went on lockdown.  It seems the bravest of the brave had to cower in fear inside the walls of America’s defense epicenter.   Apparently, a law enforcement officer may have lost his life in the incident.  Jihad?  White Supremacism?  Black Lives Matter?  Angry lover?  We don’t know.
  87. 2021 Tuesday Y: Big Tech News– Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, slams YouTube for its censorship of free speech and urges users to find alternative sites to share their views.
  88. 2021 Tuesday Z: California State News– Backers of Recall Governor Gavin Newsom are seeking to block language on the upcoming recall ballot that the effort to cleanse California of Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom is a ‘power grab by the GOP.  Governor Newsom, people from across the political spectrum are banding together to get YOU out of office just as they did with Governor Gray Davis, another corrupt Democrat governor.
  89. 2021 Tuesday AA: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1682 what with a $179 million jackpot on the line: 01, 09, 17, 27, 34, and Mega 24.  Out of 73,454 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers BUT NO MEGA for a prize of $1,091,799.  The winning ticket was sold at the Cortesia Market in Pacoima, CA 91331.
  90. 2022 Wednesday: Many pundits are speculating as to the REAL REASON for U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan.  Sure, American politicians should be able to travel wherever and whenever they wish without being fearful of communist thugs like communist China or fascist hoodlums like Russia.  Some such as Tucker Carlson, Eric Bolling, Chris Salcedo, and others speculate as to whether “Mumbles” Pelosi’s ill-timed visit is a false flag so the Chi-Coms can snatch up the islands to the west of Taiwan with which to then launch an invasion of Taiwan?  Anything is indeed possible in this world and some such as my family and me see signs of the End Times on the horizon.  One cannot make this stuff up.  No, all one need do is to read the Holy Bible.  Still, after all the suffering, the death, and the destruction, we will win.  That is the promise of GOD.  Chef Hector Santanamos “El Chilte” De Soto.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys released their next live album, “Songs from Here and Back,” a special release album that came out on May 15, 2006, one that came out from Hallmark for two months back in the day.  This is rather a hodgepodge of tunes, most of the live ones from 1989- two from back in 1974- as well as three solo studio tunes, one from Brian Wilson, one from Mike Love, and one from Alan Jardine.  You get the lineup back in 1989- Brian Wilson, Carl Wilson, Mike Love, Bruce Johnston, and Alan Jardine- plus the longtime Beach Boys backup band, the one that provides the background on the road.  The two from 1974 feature Dennis Wilson and Ricky Fataar in the mix while the solo studio recordings feature a variety of accompanying musicians.  IF you can find this one, it’s a worthy addition to one’s collection and if you can’t, well, it is what it is.  Enjoy.

[i] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.  Not sure if we will ever present the music of the other bands with which York played like the Bees, the Sir Douglas Quintet, the Museums, CRY, Gene Clark’s solo band, and Carla Olson.

[ii] 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.

[iii] We began presenting the music of the Animals, of Eric Burdon and the Animals, of Eric Burdon, Eric Burdon and War, and War beginning on Monday, 08-June-2015 and the presentation ran through Sunday, 02-August-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider making them a part of your listening pleasure.

[iv] When we begin promoting American bands again, we will be sure to include the Stray Cats as well as the group’s individual members.  We hope you will remain alert for the day we do.

[v] 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, Wings, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.

[vii] Many believe Barack Obama should be disqualified as a president because most believe he was born outside the United States which would ban him from ever seeking the highest office in the land.  At the very least, an asterisk should be placed by his name in all U.S. history books.

355. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, DECEMBER 21, 2021

2020 Monday: Speaking of the ‘Pope,’ he says- get this- that ‘vaccines made using aborted fetal tissue is ETHICAL.’ If there was ever reason to leave the Catholic Church, this is it. The vicar of Christ no longer represents the Holy Trinity but has shown his hand as Satan’s minion by his allegiance to the DEEP CHURCH. Time for the College of Cardinals to topple this Third World POS and to find a European to head the Church.

  43. 1995 Thursday: The city of Bethlehem passed from Israeli to Palestinian control on this date.  What an enormous outrage, flipping Muslims controlling the birthplace of Jesus.

  45. 2003 Sunday: The federal government raised the national threat level to orange, indicating an elevated risk of terrorist attack (the Feds lowered it back to yellow on January 9, 2004).  Meanwhile, more than 150 people lost their lives in mudslides in the Philippines.

  48. 2009 Monday: President Barack Obama hailed a crucial early morning test vote in the Senate on his infamous health care ‘overhaul,’ in which, all 58 Democrats and two independents held together against unanimous Republican opposition.  Meanwhile, the Obama administration imposed a three-hour limit on how long airlines can keep passengers waiting inside planes delayed on the ground[xi].  
  49. 2010 Tuesday: President Barack Obama announces that he is going to sign an executive order that will permit the U.S. government to hold- indefinitely- dangerous POWs captured in the War on Terror.  Currently, there are at least 48 prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, that the country cannot release.  We say, “Hang them.”
  50. 2011 Wednesday: A wave of suicide bombings and violent attacks kills dozens and injures hundreds of others in Baghdad, Iraq.   Meanwhile, the U.S. is prepared to take responsibility for an attack earlier in the year that killed at least 24 Pakistani soldiers at a border crossing between their country and Afghanistan.
  51. 2012 Friday: Voters in Alexandria, Egypt clash during the evening of the second voting session over the highly charged constitutional referendum.  Elsewhere, Lee Dorman, bassist of the psychedelic rock bands Iron Butterfly[xii] and Captain Beyond[xiii] dies on this date in beautiful Laguna Niguel, California, at the age of 70.

  55. 2016 Wednesday: The evacuation of civilians from eastern Aleppo in Syria continues as the United Nations announces it is going to establish a war crimes tribunal to punish those guilty of such crimes.  Good luck with that.   Elsewhere, Donald Trump announces he is going to nominate noted economist Peter Navarro to the White House National Trade Council.  Liberals go berserk because he is anti-China.  Not until 2020 would we learn just how many American politicians are in the back pockets of the Chi-Coms.  A shocking number.   President-elect Trump also chooses Carl Icahn- someone whom the left labels a ‘corporate raider’- as a special adviser on regulatory reform.  Of course, the leftists are upset…
  56. 2017 Thursday: Following President Donald J. Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, the United Nations- always taking the sides of the Palestinians- lights him up- verbally.   Meanwhile, the Red Cross announces that cholera cases in war torn Yemen now total 1 million.  It is a humanitarian disaster.
  57. 2018 Friday: In Ecuador, law enforcement and military personnel get their man when they track down FARC thug- Walter Arizala- criminal and drug trafficker- and kill him in a gun battle.  The authorities sought the POS for the murders of two journalists earlier in the year.  Elsewhere, in the Czech Republic, a mining disaster occurs when a methane explosion in Karvina claims the lives of 11 Poles and 2 Czechs.
  58. 2019 Saturday:  While House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi continues to hold her two articles of impeachment against President Donald J. Trump close to the vest, the White House thinks she is going to cave.   Meanwhile, RINO Republican former governor of Massachusetts says, ‘Republican senators will be voted out of office if they march in lockstep behind President Trump.’  Elsewhere, after a massive pile-up of 69 vehicles on a Virginia interstate highway, local officials close the road.  It is said that poor weather such as fog may have led to the mass collisions.  
  59. 2020 Monday: First, we learn that in Georgia, 1.3 million PLUS voters have early voted in the Peach State using the same corrupt Dominion Voting Systems machines with the same corrupt Democratic hacks running the run-off elections as ran the general election and with the same corrupt POS RINO Governor Brian Kemp and the same corrupt POS RINO Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger overseeing the process.  Do we expect either Senator Kelly Loeffler said to hold a 52-46 lead over communist NOI-loving scumbag Reverend Raphael Warnock or Senator David Perdue who is said to hold a 50-48 advantage over “Pro-China Jon” Ossoff to win?  We sure as heck don’t.   We expect fraud to win and to win BIG.
  60. 2020 Monday A: The NYPD caught 150 people early this morning at an illegal nightclub in the Big Apple.  Next, Utah RINO Senator Mitt Romney says, ‘the GOP has strayed from the importance of character.’  Mitt, STFU, please.  Meanwhile, Congress is said to have reached agreement on a $900 billion COVID-19 relief package for the American people which is purportedly close to where they started 2-3 months ago.  What is apparent is that neither House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi or Senate Minority Leader “Crying Chuck” Schumer wanted to help the American people.  Shame on them.   U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin says ‘$600 stimulus checks could be going out next week.’  Elsewhere, Congress agrees on a matter of significant importance: removing the statue of General Robert E. Lee from Statuary Hall.  Wow.  Our lives will be changed for the better!
  61. 2020 Monday B: The Trump administration cuts the size of the Arctic lands available to be auctioned off for natural gas development.   Elsewhere, Pope Francis promises Vatican employees that no one will lose his or her job due to the Chi-Com Bat Flu.   Speaking of the ‘Pope,’ he says- get this- that ‘vaccines made using aborted fetal tissue is ETHICAL.’  If there was ever reason to leave the Catholic Church, this is it.  The vicar of Christ no longer represents the Holy Trinity but has shown his hand as Satan’s minion by his allegiance to the DEEP CHURCH.  Time for the College of Cardinals to topple this Third World POS and to find a European to head the Church.
  62. 2020 Monday C: As Brexit begins to seem like it might actually happen, leftist Britons are scrambling to seek residence in Spain and Portugal.  Speaking of Great Britain, the U.S. says that ‘everything is on the table’ when it comes to enacting a travel ban on the UK due to the increasing cases of a new strain of the Chi-Vi.  People are sick all over Britain and sadly, there are some who are still naïve enough to believe that the Chi-Coms did not create this disease for use as BIOWARFARE against the globe.
  63. 2020 Monday D: Outgoing U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr lays out charges against the Libyan bombmaker whose handiwork brought down the Pan-Am flight over Lockerbie, Scotland, back in 1988.  The AG then says he has ‘no plans’ of appointing a special counsel to investigate Hunter Biden and the Biden Family.  What a disappointment you are, sir.  Meanwhile, a House panel subpoenas HHS and CDC representatives to testify regarding their ‘lackluster response’ to the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Seems like the administration did an excellent job.  
  64. 2020 Monday E: Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms attack President Donald J. Trump over his inference that they were behind the hacks and the spying.  Former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley says there’s ‘no doubt the Chi-Coms were involved.’  Of course, they were, it’s what they do.  Regarding the Chi-Com hacks, the U.S. Treasury Department says there are ‘no signs the communists caused any harm to the Treasury Department.’  Speaking of the CCP, we learn today that BIG TECH is launching an all-out blitz to influence the Biden administration into doing whatever it and their masters in Beijing want.   Proof of this is that the New York Times won’t touch the story of Chi-Com agent, California Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell, the man who attacked President Trump but who was schlepping a Chi-Com intel agent for five-plus years.  Wow.
  65. 2020 Monday F: As for the Beijing Bug, here are the numbers for the CHI-VI, you know, COVID-19 Chinese Bat Flu Virus Crisis, the pandemic they started but still try to blame on the U.S.:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 77,188,346 confirmed cases, +656,621, 1,699,285, confirmed deaths, +9,360, and 43,522,242 confirmed recoveries (again, this number has been readjusted DOWN from a week ago-something strange is occurring), +342,299.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Xi Jinping Bat Flu pandemic: 18,083,146 confirmed cases, up 283,477 from yesterday’s reporting, 321,518 confirmed deaths, UP 3,019, and 8,000,113 confirmed recoveries, UP 142,452.
  66. 2020 Monday G: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 1,910,120 confirmed cases, 22,820 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 20,291 confirmed cases, 282 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 227,122 confirmed cases, 3,170 confirmed deaths (for some unknown reason, less than last week’s count), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Pennsylvania, currently, they have 569,413 confirmed cases, 14,015 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries which seems to be the way of the world at present  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife have moved there: 374,760 confirmed cases, 3,099 confirmed deaths, and 348,107 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at another nation: Mexico: they have 1,320,545 confirmed cases of the CHI-VI, 118,2020 confirmed deaths and 978,002 confirmed recoveries.
  67. 2020 Monday H: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 30,216.45, UP 37.40 points (+0.12%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  12,742.52, DOWN 13.12 points (-0.10%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,694.92, DOWN 14.49 points (-0.39%).  Price of GOLD: $1,884.40 per troy oz., +1.60 (+0.08%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $26.48 per troy oz., +0.096 (+0.36%).  Price of PLATINUM: $1,012.60 per troy oz., -3.50 (-0.34%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,316.40 per troy oz., -55.60 (-2.34%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.58 per #, +0.0075 (+0.21%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $47.80, -0.17 (-0.35%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.55 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.82 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.95 Afghan Afghani.
  68. 2020 Monday I: Here is tonight’s Monday Night Football Matchup: (16) Pittsburgh Steelers, 17 (11-3) @ Cincinnati Bengals, 27 (3-10-1) Monday Night 5:15 P.M.  That’s right- NO mistake- the Bengals clobbered the Steelers with third-string quarterback Ryan Finley.  You go, kid, you go!
  69. 2020 Monday J: Here is where we were one year ago today: friends, stick around to discover what the Chi-Coms and their lackeys around the world are up to today- including the Democrats!  Also, we will share the scores of Monday Night Football’s matchup between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Cincinnati Bengals just as we will the stats for the Beijing Bat Flu.  Stick around.
  70. 2021 Tuesday: Stick around…

ENDNOTES:

Monday, December 21, 2020, Today in History Blog Post:   

Monday, December 21, 2020, Today in History:

We feel compelled to share with our new readers that we are an OPINION SITE and not a NEWS SITE although we do report the news.  If anything, we are big history buffs which is why we have been going strong since early 2009…


[i] Modern-day Democrats claim this is the beginning of slavery and evil in the founding of America.  We say, “F**k them,” as they are- with the exception of our liberal, Democrat, or progressive members- are full of crap.

[ii] We began presenting the music of the Mothers of Invention and of Frank Zappa beginning on Monday, 21-January-2013 and concluded the presentation on Monday, 13-May-2013.  Please seek them out, we believe you will enjoy the music of this famed man and his band.

[iii] We hope to present the music of this foundational American rock band within the next 5-6 years.  Please stay tuned for further developments.  We thank you; we know you love the Beach Boys as much as we do.

[iv] We hope to promote the music of both the Band and its members sometime in the next 10-15 years.

[v] We promoted the music of Buffalo Springfield beginning on Saturday, 17-November-2012 through Saturday, 24-November-2012.  We hope you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your collection.  You will be glad you did.

[vi] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.

[vii] We shared the music of the Hollies with the world beginning on Monday, 29-August-2016 through Thursday, 03-November-2016.

[viii] We hope to promote the music of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, as well as of each member’s solo careers along with Crazy Horse within the next 5-7 years.  Please remain vigilant for when we do.

[ix] This horrendous atrocity was committed by members of the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam.

[x] Once again, the atrocities committed in Mumbai were committed by members of the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam.  Evildoers.

[xi] Thank you, President Obama, this rule was a long time in coming as passengers kept inside planes on the tarmac due to overcrowding of aircraft at an airport risked going to jail if they tried to give up their seats and get the hell off the airplane.  Still, three hours is a long time to sit immobilized but far better than having to sit 8-12 hours.

[xii] We promoted the music of Iron Butterfly beginning on Saturday, 27-July-2013 through Thursday, 08-August-2013.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your ever-growing collection of rock music.  Nothing one finds today compares with the classic rock of old.  Throw out your Maroon 5 albums and go with the crème de la crème of the 1960s and 1970s.

[xiii] We shared the music of Deep Purple, Ian Gillan, Captain Beyond, Elf, and Rainbow beginning on Tuesday, 20-March-2018 and concluded this massive offering on Sunday, 14-October-2018.  Please seek out the music by all of these phenomenal bands.  All are fabulous.

WE THANK EVERYONE FOR JOINING US AT WORDPRESS.COM AND FOR AIDING US IN CONTINUING TO DO THE WORK WE TOOK UPON OURSELVES MORE THAN A DECADE AGO

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

UU. 2011 Wednesday: Now that the U.S. debt ceiling crisis of 2011, the second largest holder of U.S. debt- communist China- sees the Dagong Global Credit Rating of the People’s Republic of China downgrade the U.S. from A+ to A with a negative outlook- so says the Sydney Morning Herald.

  50. 2014 Sunday: According to Brainy History, the Islamic State captures the Iraqi town of Sinjar, home to the country’s Yazidi religious minority population; residents fled in advance of the extremists, who have demanded that non-Muslim residents convert to Islam or face death.  Meanwhile, in the southern Gaza town of Rafah, an Israeli airstrike takes out a UNRWA-run school.  Locals claim several people were killed which leads the U.N.

Trump signed an executive order today in which, he forbids American companies (Google comes to mind as does Microsoft and numerous other big tech firms) from hiring foreign scab workers to displace higher-paid American workers.  Far too often in today’s America, American firms force American workers to train foreign workers to do their jobs and then send them packing.  This is not right and what the president did today is amazing.  NO more displacing Americans with foreign scabs.  Enough is enough.  Meanwhile, the stats are in for shootings in Chicago over the weekend: at least 33 people shot, 9 slain- including a 9-year-old boy and when compared to last July in Chicago, murders in the Windy City in July are up 139-percent.  Elsewhere, in New York City, at this point in time, there have been more shootings than ALL of last year’s combined.  What the hell is up with these BIG BLUE CITIES?  Where the hell are Black Lives Matter, you know, the Marxist, racist organization?  We thought black lives ‘matter?’  Apparently not.
  57. 2020 Monday A: President Donald J. Trump gave Chi-Com ‘video’ (spying) ap Tik-Tok until September 15 of this year to allow Microsoft to buy the intelligence gathering platform or to get out of the United States.  Boot them out ASAP!  Meanwhile, Illinois state Representative La Shawn ford, Democrat, calls to abolish teaching history in schools across the state as- according to him- it ‘leads to white privilege and a racist society.’  Will it ever stop?

  59. 2020 Monday C: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 26,664.40, UP 236.08 points (0.89%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 10,902.80, UP 157.52 points (1.47%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,294.61, UP 23.49 points (0.72%).  Currently, GOLD is at $1,989.50 per troy oz., UP 3.20 (+0.16%), SILVER is at $24.38 per troy oz., UP -0.032 (-0.13%), PLATINUM $936.00 per troy oz. UP +4.90 (+0.53%), and COPPER is at $2.92 # +0.004 (+0.14%).  Light Sweet Crude Oil is 40.71, UP -0.30 (-0.73%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.98 Chi-Com yuan. In contrast, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros.  
  60. 2021 Tuesday: What have the Chi-Coms done today?  What has their stooge, drooling Joe Biden done?  Stick around and find out along with the rest of us…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The album we have for you today is actually the first SOLO effort that original Jethro Tull guitarist Mick Abrahams released following the two albums he made with his first solo group, Blodwyn Pig.  “Times Have Changed” came out in 1971 but we have it here as a re-release issued on September 08, 2008.  Abrahams is an unsung guitarist which is a true shame because he deserves to be in the same pantheon of Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Kim Simmonds, Alvin Lee, and a few select others as his ability to interpret the blues ranks among the all-time great top 10 axmen.  We hope you will seek this album out by visiting whatever site it is you do for the best in rock music as you will most definitely enjoy it.   Seek it out ASAP and give your ears the gift of blues music.

ENDNOTES:


[i] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.  Not sure if we will ever present the music of the other bands with which York played like the Bees, the Sir Douglas Quintet, the Museums, CRY, Gene Clark’s solo band, and Carla Olson.

[ii] 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.

[iii] We began presenting the music of the Animals, of Eric Burdon and the Animals, of Eric Burdon, Eric Burdon and War, and War beginning on Monday, 08-June-2015 and the presentation ran through Sunday, 02-August-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider making them a part of your listening pleasure.

[iv] When we begin promoting American bands again, we will be sure to include the Stray Cats as well as the group’s individual members.  We hope you will remain alert for the day we do.

[v] 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, Wings, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.

[vii] Many believe Barack Obama should be disqualified as a president because most believe he was born outside the United States which would ban him from ever seeking the highest office in the land.  At the very least, an asterisk should be placed by his name in all U.S. history books.

  49. 2016 Wednesday: The evacuation of civilians from eastern Aleppo in Syria continues as the United Nations announces it is going to establish a war crimes tribunal to punish those guilty of such crimes.  Good luck with that.   Elsewhere, Donald Trump announces he is going to nominate noted economist Peter Navarro to the White House National Trade Council.  Liberals go berserk because he is anti-China.  Not until 2020 would we learn just how many American politicians are in the back pockets of the Chi-Coms.  A shocking number.   President-elect Trump also chooses Carl Icahn- someone whom the left labels a ‘corporate raider’- as a special adviser on regulatory reform.  Of course, the leftists are upset…
  50. 2017 Thursday: Following President Donald J. Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, the United Nations- always taking the sides of the Palestinians- lights him up- verbally.   Meanwhile, the Red Cross announces that cholera cases in war torn Yemen now total 1 million.  It is a humanitarian disaster.
  51. 2018 Friday: In Ecuador, law enforcement and military personnel get their man when they track down FARC thug- Walter Arizala- criminal and drug trafficker- and kill him in a gun battle.  The authorities sought the POS for the murders of two journalists earlier in the year.  Elsewhere, in the Czech Republic, a mining disaster occurs when a methane explosion in Karvina claims the lives of 11 Poles and 2 Czechs.
  52. 2019 Saturday:  While House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi continues to hold her two articles of impeachment against President Donald J. Trump close to the vest, the White House thinks she is going to cave.   Meanwhile, RINO Republican former governor of Massachusetts says, ‘Republican senators will be voted out of office if they march in lockstep behind President Trump.’  Elsewhere, after a massive pile-up of 69 vehicles on a Virginia interstate highway, local officials close the road.  It is said that poor weather such as fog may have led to the mass collisions.  
  53. 2020 Monday: First, we learn that in Georgia, 1.3 million PLUS voters have early voted in the Peach State using the same corrupt Dominion Voting Systems machines with the same corrupt Democratic hacks running the run-off elections as ran the general election and with the same corrupt POS RINO Governor Brian Kemp and the same corrupt POS RINO Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger overseeing the process.  Do we expect either Senator Kelly Loeffler said to hold a 52-46 lead over communist NOI-loving scumbag Reverend Raphael Warnock or Senator David Perdue who is said to hold a 50-48 advantage over “Pro-China Jon” Ossoff to win?  We sure as heck don’t.   We expect fraud to win and to win BIG.
  54. 2020 Monday A: The NYPD caught 150 people early this morning at an illegal nightclub in the Big Apple.  Next, Utah RINO Senator Mitt Romney says, ‘the GOP has strayed from the importance of character.’  Mitt, STFU, please.  Meanwhile, Congress is said to have reached agreement on a $900 billion COVID-19 relief package for the American people which is purportedly close to where they started 2-3 months ago.  What is apparent is that neither House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi or Senate Minority Leader “Crying Chuck” Schumer wanted to help the American people.  Shame on them.   U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin says ‘$600 stimulus checks could be going out next week.’  Elsewhere, Congress agrees on a matter of significant importance: removing the statue of General Robert E. Lee from Statuary Hall.  Wow.  Our lives will be changed for the better!
  55. 2020 Monday B: The Trump administration cuts the size of the Arctic lands available to be auctioned off for natural gas development.   Elsewhere, Pope Francis promises Vatican employees that no one will lose his or her job due to the Chi-Com Bat Flu.   Speaking of the ‘Pope,’ he says- get this- that ‘vaccines made using aborted fetal tissue is ETHICAL.’  If there was ever reason to leave the Catholic Church, this is it.  The vicar of Christ no longer represents the Holy Trinity but has shown his hand as Satan’s minion by his allegiance to the DEEP CHURCH.  Time for the College of Cardinals to topple this Third World POS and to find a European to head the Church.
  56. 2020 Monday C: As Brexit begins to seem like it might actually happen, leftist Britons are scrambling to seek residence in Spain and Portugal.  Speaking of Great Britain, the U.S. says that ‘everything is on the table’ when it comes to enacting a travel ban on the UK due to the increasing cases of a new strain of the Chi-Vi.  People are sick all over Britain and sadly, there are some who are still naïve enough to believe that the Chi-Coms did not create this disease for use as BIOWARFARE against the globe.
  57. 2020 Monday D: Outgoing U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr lays out charges against the Libyan bombmaker whose handiwork brought down the Pan-Am flight over Lockerbie, Scotland, back in 1988.  The AG then says he has ‘no plans’ of appointing a special counsel to investigate Hunter Biden and the Biden Family.  What a disappointment you are, sir.  Meanwhile, a House panel subpoenas HHS and CDC representatives to testify regarding their ‘lackluster response’ to the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Seems like the administration did an excellent job.  
  58. 2020 Monday E: Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms attack President Donald J. Trump over his inference that they were behind the hacks and the spying.  Former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley says there’s ‘no doubt the Chi-Coms were involved.’  Of course they were, it’s what they do.  Regarding the Chi-Com hacks, the U.S. Treasury Department says there are ‘no signs the communists caused any harm to the Treasury Department.’  Speaking of the CCP, we learn today that BIG TECH is launching an all-out blitz to influence the Biden administration into doing whatever it and their masters in Beijing want.   Proof of this is that the New York Times won’t touch the story of Chi-Com agent, California Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell, the man who attacked President Trump but who was schlepping a Chi-Com intel agent for five-plus years.  Wow.
  59. 2020 Monday F: As for the Beijing Bug, here are the numbers for the CHI-VI, you know, COVID-19 Chinese Bat Flu Virus Crisis, the pandemic they started but still try to blame on the U.S.:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 77,188,346 confirmed cases, +656,621, 1,699,285, confirmed deaths, +9,360, and 43,522,242 confirmed recoveries (again, this number has been readjusted DOWN from a week ago-something strange is occurring), +342,299.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Xi Jinping Bat Flu pandemic: 18,083,146 confirmed cases, up 283,477 from yesterday’s reporting, 321,518 confirmed deaths, UP 3,019, and 8,000,113 confirmed recoveries, UP 142,452.
  60. 2020 Monday G: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 1,910,120 confirmed cases, 22,820 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 20,291 confirmed cases, 282 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 227,122 confirmed cases, 3,170 confirmed deaths (for some unknown reason, less than last week’s count), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Pennsylvania, currently, they have 569,413 confirmed cases, 14,015 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries which seems to be the way of the world at present  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife have moved there: 374,760 confirmed cases, 3,099 confirmed deaths, and 348,107 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at another nation: Mexico: they have 1,320,545 confirmed cases of the CHI-VI, 118,2020 confirmed deaths and 978,002 confirmed recoveries.
  61. 2020 Monday H: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 30,216.45, UP 37.40 points (+0.12%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  12,742.52, DOWN 13.12 points (-0.10%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,694.92, DOWN 14.49 points (-0.39%).  Price of GOLD: $1,884.40 per troy oz., +1.60 (+0.08%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $26.48 per troy oz., +0.096 (+0.36%).  Price of PLATINUM: $1,012.60 per troy oz., -3.50 (-0.34%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,316.40 per troy oz., -55.60 (-2.34%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.58 per #, +0.0075 (+0.21%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $47.80, -0.17 (-0.35%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.55 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.82 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.95 Afghan Afghani.
  62. 2020 Monday I: Here is tonight’s Monday Night Football Matchup: (16) Pittsburgh Steelers, 17 (11-3) @ Cincinnati Bengals, 27 (3-10-1) Monday Night 5:15 P.M. That’s right- NO mistake- the Bengals clobbered the Steelers with third-string quarterback Ryan Finley.  You go, kid, you go!
  63. 2020 Monday J: Friends, stick around to discover what the Chi-Coms and their lackeys around the world are up to today- including the Democrats!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On November 12, 1982, the J. Geils Band released their next album, a live one- “Showtime.”  Although the album features the same lineup as their earlier efforts- John “J.” Geils (guitars), Peter Wolf (vocals), Seth Justman (keyboards/vocals), Danny Klein (bass/vocals), Stephen Jo Bladd (drums), and “Magic Dick” (harmonicas/saxophones)- for some reason, it’s not as powerful as their previous two live albums, “Live- Full House” and “Blow Your Face Out” as well as the fact that it lacks several tunes one would think should be included such as “Freeze-Frame,” “Flamethrower,” “I Could Hurt You,” as well as another live version of “Looking for a Love” as well as “Where Did Our Love Go?”  Ah, well, it is what it is and this is what they gave us.  As completists, we love a group’s entire catalogs which is why we encourage the readers to seek it out wherever you shop for the finest in rock music and consider adding it to your ever-growing collection.

ENDNOTES:


[i] Modern-day Democrats claim this is the beginning of slavery and evil in the founding of America.  We say, “F**k them,” as they are- with the exception of our liberal, Democrat, or progressive members- are full of crap.

[ii] We began presenting the music of the Mothers of Invention and of Frank Zappa beginning on Monday, 21-January-2013 and concluded the presentation on Monday, 13-May-2013.  Please seek them out, we believe you will enjoy the music of this famed man and his band.

[iii] We hope to present the music of this foundational American rock band within the next 5-6 years.  Please stay tuned for further developments.  We thank you; we know you love the Beach Boys as much as we do.

[iv] We hope to promote the music of both the Band and its members sometime in the next 10-15 years.

[v] We promoted the music of Buffalo Springfield beginning on Saturday, 17-November-2012 through Saturday, 24-November-2012.  We hope you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your collection.  You will be glad you did.

[vi] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.

[vii] We shared the music of the Hollies with the world beginning on Monday, 29-August-2016 through Thursday, 03-November-2016.

[viii] We hope to promote the music of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, as well as of each member’s solo careers along with Crazy Horse within the next 5-7 years.  Please remain vigilant for when we do.

[ix] This horrendous atrocity was committed by members of the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam.

[x] Once again, the atrocities committed in Mumbai were committed by members of the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam.  Evildoers.

[xi] Thank you, President Obama, this rule was a long time in coming as passengers kept inside planes on the tarmac due to overcrowding of aircraft at an airport risked going to jail if they tried to give up their seats and get the hell off the airplane.  Still, three hours is a long time to sit immobilized but far better than having to sit 8-12 hours.

[xii] We promoted the music of Iron Butterfly beginning on Saturday, 27-July-2013 through Thursday, 08-August-2013.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your ever-growing collection of rock music.  Nothing one finds today compares with the classic rock of old.  Throw out your Maroon 5 albums and go with the crème de la crème of the 1960s and 1970s.

[xiii] We shared the music of Deep Purple, Ian Gillan, Captain Beyond, Elf, and Rainbow beginning on Tuesday, 20-March-2018 and concluded this massive offering on Sunday, 14-October-2018.  Please seek out the music by all of these phenomenal bands.  All are fabulous.

Meanwhile, the judge in the Michael Flynn Case, Emmet Sullivan won’t let the case go even after the Justice Department said to ‘drop it.’ U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnel: impeach this POS judge.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

 

 

#PF001.1y Identity #25 05-04-2020 (400)

 

Rick Wright released his next album, “Identity,” which was a collaboration between himself and Dave “Dee” Harris, entitled, “Identity.” Wright and Harris combined to create an eclectic electronic album that Wright would later admit was something he never should have released but folks, it is what it is. In many way, Wright has been overshadowed by his fellow Pink Floyd bandmates but the man is a keyboard whiz deserving of your attention. We love his contributions to the world of music, both as a member of Floyd and as a solo artist which is why we encourage everyone to seek this album out and to add it to their growing album collection. You will find it enjoyable and a must-have addition to all things Pink Floyd.
