Gen. Michael Flynn case- Judge Emmet Sullivan- refuses to let the case go even after the U.S. Department of Justice said it’s not going to prosecute this case.  This is what is wrong in the United States, we have dictatorial judges who need to be impeached and removed from office.  Perhaps when the GOP controls both houses of Congress in January 2021?

  86. 2021 Thursday F: Foreign News / Overseas News– After Hamas has launched more than 1,500 rockets into civilian areas within Israel since Monday, it would appear that Israeli ground and air assets are crossing the border into the hellhole known as Gaza.  Moses Scharbug III, aka Mo- who now lives in Israel- says that it is a clash between civilization and darkness, a clash between light and barbarism and that the Israelis must crush these animalistic scum with every weapon possessed in their arsenal.  We all tend to agree.  Send these cockroaches howling into 1,000 years of darkness, naked and devastated.  The Israeli ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer says that ‘Hamas must be taught a lesson that it cannot murder Israelis with impunity.’  Amen.  We say, ‘use neutron bombs and eliminate these rats.’   
  87. 2021 Thursday G: Political News I– While Israel fights for its very survival, Anti-Semitic scum such as Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DS-MN 5th congressional district, and Rep. Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, DS-MI 13th congressional district, are more or less calling for her destruction by not providing her support in her hour of need.  As Mo says, ‘NO matter what the Democratic-Socialists say, God gave the land encompassed by Israel to Moses more than 2,000 years ago.  It was the homeland of the Jews and the only reason it was not because first the Romans and then the Muslims drove them off the land.  If one wants to talk about the ‘right of return,’ Jews have the first and ONLY right of return.’  Could not say it better ourselves.   Regarding these two Islamist congresswomen, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, confronted the head of the ‘suicide squad,’ Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez aka AOC aka Baby Evita aka Sandy Cortez (birth name), DS-NY 14th congressional district, and called her out over her support for ‘terrorists.’  
  88. 2021 Thursday H: Business News– The Biden Regime is doing a lot of chest-thumping over the fact that last week ONLY 473,000 new jobless claims were filed.  What they neglect to say is that there are 8,000,000 unfilled in jobs in the U.S., jobs that are NOT being filled because of the Biden’s regime edict that the unemployed receive MORE money sitting at home in their skivvies than they would if they were on the job.  (Note- we believe the Biden regime is doing this so as to whine in a few weeks that ‘to fill these empty jobs, illegal aliens will have to do the work Americans are unwilling to do.’  We’ve heard this tune before.
  89. 2021 Thursday I: Joe Biden Regime News I– Joe Biden’s $86 billion pension bailout plan is set to boost corporate bonds.  In related news, a House panel is backing a bill that will spend $8 billion to shift the United States Postal Service from gas-fueled vehicles to electric vehicles.  (Note- fascinating how coincidental the shutdown of the Colonial Pipeline running through 17 states and now the Dems are pushing for more electric vehicles than ever.  You realize that once everyone has EVs, they will be restricted to a certain radius because of charging station availability, the length of the charge, as well as the fact that electric cars are far more expensive, batteries harder to dispose of due to their toxicity, and the eventual pushing of everyone out of electric vehicles to public transit in much the same way we have Ubers).[xx]   
  90. 2021 Thursday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– As the Arizona state senate continues its investigation into the fraudulent 2020 Elections, investigators announce that the Maricopa County election officials WIPED the voting machines’ memories.  Here again is yet another reason as to why millions of Americans continue to believe that what happened in the days following November 03 were not legit.  And still, the Democrats continue crying and sniveling that anyone questioning the results of the 2020 Election is somehow a backwoods goober.  (Note- the evidence continues piling up by the day that November 03, 2020, was the worst example of elections fraud in the history of our great nation).
  91. 2021 Thursday K: Miscellaneous News I– Democrats are seeking a ban on military weapons making their way into the hands of local police departments.   Next, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov has hired criminal defense attorneys without saying if HE is paying for them or the Empire State will.  (Note- our bet is on the taxpayers of New York).  Speaking of worthless governors, Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom, DS-CA, says he will ‘END the mask mandate on June 15.’  (Note- too late, there ‘Smiler;’ no matter what you do, WE are recalling you).  Elsewhere, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, is trying to fight off potential challengers as she seeks to become the No. 3 in the GOP House leadership.  (Note- most of us would like to seen Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, or Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district, get the job).
  92. 2022 Friday: You know the drill…

The next album by the Beach Boys- “Shut Down Volume 2” was the biggest to date as it contained so many wonderful tunes.  The lineup featured Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals and saxophones), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), and Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals).  The tunes on this album are some of the band’s fan favorites to this date- “Fun, Fun, Fun,” “Don’t Worry Baby” (a tune Who drummer Keith Moon would cover on his sole solo album), “The Warmth of the Sun,” “This Car of Mine,” “Why Do Fools Fall in Love,” “Shut Down Part II,” and a cover of “Louie, Louie.”  We hope you will investigate this album to your ears’ content as it is one every fan of the times and of the band should own.  You will be so glad you did.

  18. 1944 Thursday: The Royal Air Force drops 2,300 tons of bombs on the Nazi capital of Berlin.  Elsewhere, on the Eastern Front, German positions around Leningrad are becoming untenable.  In some areas as they attempt to withdraw, Soviet gunners turn the artillery that had been bombarding the historic city for more than two years on them as they retreat.  To the south, the fight to reduce the Cherkassy pocket- dubbed by the Germans as the “Witches Cauldron”- continued, a battle that began on Christmas Eve and still was raging.  Ordered by Hitler to stand and fight, the Germans were trying to figure how to pull out of the ‘cauldron’ before they ended up like their comrades in Stalingrad did the previous year: annihilated.

Humphrey takes the oath of office as the 38th vice president of the United States.

  46. 2003 Monday: Secretary of State Colin Powell, faced with stiff resistance and calls for caution, bluntly told the Security Council that the U.N. “must not shrink” from its responsibility to disarm Saddam Hussein’s Iraq.  Caricaturist Al Hirschfeld died in New York at age 99.  Pollster Burns W. “Bud” Roper died on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, at age 77.

  54. 2016 Wednesday: Both NASA and NOAA announce that 2015 WAS THE HOTTEST YEAR ON RECORD since records began being kept in 1890.  This, of course, becomes a common refrain year after year after year as the Climate Change alarmists continue screeching, “THE SKY IS FALLING, THE SKY IS FALLING,” yet, the sky NEVER FALLS.  Meanwhile, Caltech scientists release more ‘evidence’ that there could very well be a ‘Planet NINE’ on the outer edges of the Solar System, far beyond the Kuiper Belt. 
  55. 2017 Friday: Following the oath taken by Vice President-elect Mike Pence to become the nation’s 48th vice president, Donald Trump took the oath of office as the 45th president of the United States, pledging emphatically to empower America’s ‘forgotten men and women.’  Protesters registered their rage against the new president in a chaotic confrontation with police just blocks from the inaugural parade, screaming, crying, melting down, and some such as Madonna threatening to blow up the White House.  What a bunch of leftist trash.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Senate confirms the first two Cabinet picks of President Trump- James “Mad Dog” Mattis to become his secretary for defense and John Kelly to head Homeland Security, both of whom are former generals. 
  56. 2017 Friday A:  Across the world in Syria, ISIS destroys portions of the ancient Roman amphitheater in Palmyra by blowing it up with TNT.   Behead this murderous scum.  Elsewhere in Syria, either U.S. or Russian warplanes carry out an airstrike on ISIS positions west of Aleppo killing at least 40 or more thugs and wounding loads of others.
  57. 2018 Saturday: In St. Albans, Hertfordshire, bass player with the Zombies[xii], Argent, and the Kinks[xiii]– Jim Rodford- died in a fall at his home on this date; he was 76-years-old.  Meanwhile, a dispute in Congress over spending and immigration forced scores of federal government agencies and outposts to close their doors; federal officials turned tourists away from sites such as the Statue of Liberty and Philadelphia’s Independence Hall.  However, two days later, Congress voted to temporarily pay for resumed operations.  On the anniversary of President Donald J. Trump’s inauguration, left-wing demonstrators in cities across the country marched in support of female empowerment and denounced Trump’s (suspected but unproven) views on immigration, LGBT rights, and other issues.  Widespread belief is that POS such as Georgy Soros and Tom Steyer, among others, fund these crackpot demonstrations.
  58. 2019 Sunday: In the NFC Championship Game, the visiting Los Angeles Rams stun the home team favorite New Orleans Saints in OT by a final score of 26-23.   In the AFC Championship Game, the visiting New England Patriots beat the Kansas City Chiefs, also in OT, by a final score of 37-31.  Elsewhere, the march of peace continues.  Following suspension of diplomatic relations in 1972, Chadian President Idriss Deby and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu restore diplomatic relations in Chad’s capital of N’Djamena.

  60. 2021 Wednesday:  NOT OUR PRESIDENT, folks: Joseph R. Biden Jr. took the oath of office today as the nation’s 46th president while his heir apparent Kamala Harris took the oath of office as the nation’s 49th vice president.  The oaths they swore are to uphold the U.S. Constitution and all the laws of the United States.  While preaching unity, they insult their political opponents every opportunity they get while GOP leadership in the House and Senate are already brown-nosing the duo.  Disgraceful.   Many Americans are renouncing their GOP membership beginning today including several chef-authors here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM.  We expect to see an avalanche of millions of similarly disgruntled Republicans following in our heels.
  61. 2021 Wednesday A: Senator Lindsey Graham, RINO-SC, a fair-weather Republican if ever one existed says that Mitch McConnell should ‘unequivocally oppose’ the second impeachment of Donald J. Trump, especially now that he’s out of office.  Elsewhere, Donald Trump flew out of Joint Base Andrews to his home in Florida earlier today.  Meanwhile, apparently some knucklehead phoned in a ‘bomb threat’ to the U.S. Supreme Court but all the radical, right-wing, QAnon violence the Democrats swore was going to explode all over the place has not happened.  We see it for what it is, folks, just another attempt at tarring and feathering all Trump supporters.  Finally, both drooling House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi and forever-angry Hillary Rodham Clinton are trying to revive the long-dead strawman of Trump-Russia Collusion when the two should be investigating Communist China-Democratic Party Collusion.
  62. 2021 Wednesday B: Outgoing President Trump issued 70 commutations and 73 pardons including one for Judge Jeannine Pirro’s ex-husband, Al.  Also, in his final hours, the outgoing president issued oil drilling leases in Alaska’s Wildlife Refuge.  Elsewhere, Ret. Gen. Lloyd Austin, ‘President Biden’s’ pick for Defense secretary says he is willing to lift the ban on transgenders serving in the U.S. military, one imposed by the previous administration because of the exorbitant costs transgender service personnel cost the American taxpayers.  Here we go.   A return to identity politics of all types- how soon before ‘furries’ and pedophiles and peeping toms and S & M’ers and multiple-partner marriages and everyone else with any kind of sexual proclivity gets special treatment from the ‘Biden administration?’
  63. 2021 Wednesday C: West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin says that launching infrastructure projects in all 50 states would get the American people back to work and back on their feet.  Sounds great, let’s see it happen.  Meanwhile, SpaceX bought two deep water offshore oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico to convert into space ports.  Elsewhere, Ford and Mazda are recalling 3 million cars due to airbag problems.  Speaking of automobiles, KIA shares are soaring over rumors of electric car production.  We shall see.  Overseas, like the Orwellian figures they are, the Chi-Coms trot out Jack Ma, his first public appearance in months, so the world can see they haven’t offed him yet.  Read “1984” and you will understand WHY this matters.  Finally, ‘President Joe Biden’ sends an immigration overhaul bill to the U.S. Congress that will legalize between 11 and 40 million illegal aliens within the fabric of the country as well as will draw millions more to swamp our constitutional republic.
  64. 2021 Wednesday D: ‘President’ Joe Biden signed 15 executive orders today.  First, he is initiating the return of the United States to the Paris Climate Accord.  Next, he revoked the permit for the Keystone XL Pipeline, much to the horror of our northern neighbor, Canada.  Then, he removed his predecessor’s travel ban on people coming in from mostly Muslim countries with a history of terrorism.  Following that, he signed one strengthening DACA protections for illegal aliens brought here as children.  Speaking of illegals, he is removing the ‘emergency funding’ that diverted U.S. DOD funds to continue building the southern border wall.  He also mandated that in all federal buildings and on all federal lands, masks must be worn at all times.   Another one would also count illegal aliens in the U.S. Census which will enable Democrats to win more House seats because of higher population counts. 
  65. 2021 Wednesday E: ‘President’ Joe Biden also cried out against ‘domestic terrorism,’ ‘white supremacy,’ and other evil things among opposition party members.  He also said he can ‘hear the planet crying out to him.’  What is it about the bogus Climate Change scam liberals continue pushing?  First, if we are to believe in science then everyone should understand that the Sun is the number one driver of ‘climate change’ on every planet in the Solar System blessed with a climate.  In addition to that, millions of bombs were exploded in the previous century, nuclear weapons tests conducted below ground, at ground level, under the ocean, and even in the atmosphere and still, the planet is not dead, nor will it die.  Yet, they continue pushing this bogus scheme because it is a way of fleecing those with money and then redistributing it to wherever they wish.  “Taxing the air” is what they call it…
  66. 2021 Wednesday F: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 96,640,644 confirmed cases, +581,653, 2,068,921, confirmed deaths, +15,537, and 53,267,010 confirmed recoveries, +372,842.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 24,433,486 confirmed cases, up 143,073 from yesterday’s reporting, 404,812 confirmed deaths, UP 1,749, and 10,562,082 confirmed recoveries, UP 51,007.
  67. 2021 Wednesday G: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,071,119 confirmed cases, 34,443 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases, 325 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 296,363 confirmed cases, 4,020 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Montana: currently, they have 90,255 confirmed cases, 1,094 confirmed deaths, and 84,255 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 575,842 confirmed cases, 4,181 confirmed deaths, and 478,897 confirmed recoveries.  
  68. 2021 Wednesday H:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,188.38, UP 257.86 points (+0.83%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,457.25, UP 260.07 points (+1.97%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,851.85, UP 52.94 points (+1.39%).  The price of GOLD is $1,869.60 per troy oz., +3.10 (-0.17%) while the price of SILVER is $25.90 per troy ounce, +0.134 (+0.52%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,114.50 per troy oz, -1.90 (-0.17%) while the price of COPPER is $3.65 per pound, +0.0045 (+0.12%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,403.20 per troy oz, +38.20 (+1.62%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.96 per barrel, -0.35 (-0.66%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.58.
  69. 2021 Wednesday I: Upon entering the Oval Office, almost immediately, ‘President’ Joe Biden deletes the 1776 Project page from the White House website.  Instead, he will promote the 1619 Project which vilifies the founding of the United States and its history.  It is important to note that today’s Inauguration Day events appeared more like a totalitarian state than they did an American event, the peaceful transfer of power.  Armed soldiers everywhere, hardly any civilians around, in a locked-down, fortified city being patrolled by armed members of the military.  It appears the nation has been overthrown from within.  Meanwhile, the Iranians are licking their chops that they are going to see the reentry of the United States into the flawed, pro-Iranian JCPOA deal.  This will occur almost immediately.
  70. 2021 Wednesday J: Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3527: 05, 08, 15, 21, 37, and Mega 27.  Out of 159,315 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO MEGA number for a prize of $53,831.  The winning ticket was sold at Ironwood Liquor in Moreno Valley, CA 92557.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #813: 40, 53, 60, 68, 69, and Powerball 22.  Out of 537,669 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had ALL SIX NUMBERS for a prize of $730,000,000.  The winning ticket was sold in Maryland.  Next, the next highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Powerball number for a prize of $599,639 apiece.  The two winning tickets were sold at (1) 7/11 in Redlands, CA 92373 and (2) Déjà Vu Liquor in Woodland Hills, CA 91364.  Tomorrow night, the Mega Millions jackpot for Draw #1626 is in the vicinity of $970 million.  Good luck, folks.
  71. 2022 Thursday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Richard Thompson’s next album was a blast from the pass- “In Concert 1975,” an album that hit record store shelves on August 13, 2007.  The album featured not only Richard on guitars and vocals but then-wife, Linda Thompson, on vocals, the amazing John Kirkpatrick on accordions and concertinas, Dave Pegg on the bass, and Dave Mattacks on the drums.  The band rocks through 15 of their wonderful songs, covering both hard rockers and sentimental songs of sadness and longing, and everything in between.  We do hope you will seek this one out and consider adding it to your ever-expanding collection of albums from ‘back in the day’ as compared to the crap one now must listen to on most radio stations like fish-lipped sluts with oversized butts, brain-dead rappers, and chicks with single names and little else to their credit, this is something that will raise your heart from the perverse gutter into which WOKE has shoved everyone’s ears.  Seek it out now and enjoy- you will be so glad you did, of that, we are certain.

Wednesday, January 20, 2021, 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…

NOTE- THERE ARE SO MANY U.S. POLITICIANS WHO HAVE ENTERED OR EXITED OFFICE ON JANUARY 20, IT WOULD TAKE US MONTHS TO GET ALL OF THEM ENTERED SO PLEASE BEAR WITH US…


Thursday, January 20, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We hope to share the music of Poco, sometime in the next decade.  Please remain with us.

[ii] If we are still here in another 20 years or so, you might see the music of Judas Priest, Quiet Riot, Twisted Sister, Iron Maiden, and the rest of the bands from that era. 

[iii] We hope to present the music of KISS sometime in the late 2020s. 

[iv] We promoted “Meet the Beatles” on Monday, 07-November-2016.

[v] Many debate as to WHY Francisco Franco did this.  Many believe it was to curry favor with the Allies as the war went against the Axis while others believed he sought to right the wrongs of Spain’s past.  In the end, his government was able to rescue hundreds of thousands of Sephardi Jews from the gas chambers.

[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 look forward to doing the music of Bob Dylan sometime within the next 15-20 years.  Please, stick around for when we do.

[viii] Not sure when Guns ‘n’ Roses is coming but we hope we will still be alive and will get around to sharing them with the world.

[ix] Not sure when we will present the music of this famed Canadian American rock band but when we do, you will be the first to know.  The Band ranks among the all-time greatest rock bands of the 1960s and 1970s.  You won’t want to miss them.

[x] 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.

[xi] At some point, we will do the music of the Mamas and the Papas the same time we do the music of Sonny & Cher.  We hope you will continue awaiting that glorious day.

[xii] We promoted the music of the Zombies, Argent, Rod Argent, and Colin Blunstone beginning on Monday, 28-October-2019 through Sunday, 05-January-2020.  Please, check them out.

[xiii] We presented the music of the Kinks, as well as of Ray and Dave Davies, beginning on Monday, 22-December-2014 through Sunday, 15-March-2015.  We hope you will check out the music of this original British invasion band as they are as relevant today as they were more than 50 years ago.  Sure, beats the hell out of Maroon Five.

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, WE HAVE TO HELP JOE; OTHERWISE, THE GOP IS GOING TO MOP THE FLOOR WITH THE BODIES OF DEMOCRATS…
