  57. 2016 Tuesday: Former French President Nikolas Sarkozy faces charges for having misused campaign funds.  Meanwhile, the U.S. and communist Cuba sign an agreement to permit air travel between the two countries for the first time in half-a-century.
  58. 2017 Thursday: In Baghdad, ISIS claims responsibility for the third attack in three days, a bombing in the Bayaa neighborhood that murders at least 48 people and wounds countless more.  Meanwhile, as President Donald J. Trump continues his Cabinet formation, he chooses Florida International University College of Law Dean Alex Acosta to serve as his secretary of the Labor Department.  Meanwhile, in the U.S. Senate, the august body confirms by a vote of 51-49 Mick Mulvaney to head the Office of Management and Budget.
  59. 2018 Friday: In the wake of massive anti-government protests, Ethiopia declares a state of emergency.  Light ‘em up.  Elsewhere, in Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller’s investigation into Trump-Russia collusion continues, Steve Bannon- strategist for Donald J. Trump- is called before the tribunal to answer questions for the inquisitors.  Democrats pin their hopes on this show trial BS as a means of getting their enemy out of office and into prison.  As the farce continues, 13 Russian nationals from the Internet Research Agency undergo indictment by the Mueller team for supposedly interfering in the 2016 Presidential Election.
  60. 2019 Saturday: India’s new high-speed train breaks down on its inaugural run, its return trip to New Delhi.  Elsewhere, Heather Nauert, spokesperson for the U.S. Department of State withdraws from consideration to become the next U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.  Meanwhile, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un announces that he will be arriving in Hanoi, Vietnam, for the upcoming second summit between Kim and President Donald J. Trump.  Finally, Boko Haram thugs attack civilians in Maiduguri, Nigeria, killing at least people via suicide bombers and wounding numerous others.  The ‘so-called religion of peace’ strikes yet again.[vi]
  61. 2020 Sunday: Members of the so-called ‘religion of peace’- Islam- strike again, this time in Pansi, Burkina Faso, when gunmen storm a church, lighting up the church killing at least 24 people and wounding loads of others.  WTF is wrong with these people?  Elsewhere, COVID-19, aka the Chi-Vi, continues running amok around the world with 71,000 reported cases globally.  However, after fierce efforts to help passengers aboard cruise ships, many are finally repatriated to their home countries.   Meanwhile, 1,100-plus former Department of Justice employees call on Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr to resign.  This BS arose after AG Barr asked the Justice Department to reconsider the sentence being imposed on President Trump’s friend, Roger Stone.  It was unfair, people, for a man his age with no prior convictions.
  62. 2021 Tuesday: Day 28 of the Biden Regime: the first disturbing thing we learned today is that Joe Biden is not the person speaking with foreign leaders but his ‘vice president,’ Ms. Kamala Harris.  What does this tell us?  Something is not right with the ‘46th president.’  Speaking of Old Joe, now that the impeachment trial has ended, the Democrats are going to pivot back and begin working on the ‘Biden agenda.’  Goody for us.  Next, the ‘Biden administration’ is in talks with Amazon.com to obtain help in rolling out the Chinese Virus vaccine.  From before the election, Joe said he ‘had a plan.’  So far, no plan is evident anywhere.  Something else he promised today via his mouthpiece Jen “Circle Back” Psaki is that protections for forbearance and foreclosure protections are to continue for those harmed by the Wuhan Virus pandemic.
  63. 2021 Tuesday A: In Washington, D.C., Capitol Hill police officers a vote of NO confidence for their current leaders.  Nancy Pelosi should be among the no confidence vote; after all, we alleged she had a BIG HAND in what happened on January 6, 2021.  Next, Senator Tom Cotton says that it’s ‘time to send troops guarding the Capitol home.’  Meanwhile, Senator Ron Johnson, R-Wisconsin, says the “Capitol Hill riot was NOT an armed insurrection,” which is simply was not.  The people did not carry firearms and other weapons- other than the Antifa and Black Lives Matter infiltrators- no matter how much liberal news media and squalling Democrats claim it was.   Meanwhile, Louisiana Congressman Bennie Thompson, Democrat, debuted a portion of the Democratic strategy to continue pursuing Donald Trump.  This POS filed a lawsuit against Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani for ‘instigating the January 6, 2021 mob action at the capital.
  64. 2021 Tuesday B: A Los Angeles County supervisor announces that schools be reopened this week as COVID-19 cases have miraculously gone down.   Meanwhile, numerous governors across the nation have signed a letter to Joe Biden demanding he fix the botched rollout of the coronavirus vaccine.  States want to reopen NOW.   Next, beleaguered New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo still won’t apologize for the more than 9,000 deaths he caused in the Empire State nor will apologize for hiding data showing the true figures of all the people HE killed in nursing homes.  You see, patients that tested positive for the Panda Pandemic and were removed to the hospital were then returned to the very same nursing home where they then infected everyone else, many of whom died.  We believe this was purposeful, to eliminate what the Nazis called ‘useless eaters,’ people who absorbed the state’s resources without giving anything back in return.  Civilized countries do not behave this way but left-wing morons sure the hell do.  Cuomo should be in an orange jumpsuit pounding away at rocks.
  65. 2021 Tuesday C: Former Utah Congressman Jason Chaffetz, Republican, says he is considering primarying Senator Mitt Romney in 2024.  We sure the heck hope the state finds a way to remove the Trump-hating POS.  Next, Texas State Senator Paul Bettencourt, 7th State Senate District, says, “Texas is going to remain RED.”  Elsewhere, the GOP of Maine is considering censuring Senator Susan Collins for voting to impeach former President Donald J. Trump.   Meanwhile, the Biden White House says it supports Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s plan to launch a 9-11-style commission to ‘investigate the TRUTH behind the January 6, 2021 Capitol Hill Riots.   Finally, former Senator David Perdue, R-GA, files the paperwork to challenge Senator Raphael Warnock in 2022 and get his old seat back.
  66. 2021 Tuesday D: Iran denies any responsibility for the rocket attack in Iraq the day before, one that killed a private contractor and wounded a U.S. servicemember.   Meanwhile, a North Korean manages to cross through the DMZ separating his country and the neighboring South Korea.  They believe him to be a defector.  We feel badly for his family in the North.  Elsewhere, White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki says, ‘Joe Biden is going to ‘recalibrate U.S. relations with Saudi Arabia and that Old Joe will- at some point- call Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, to see what’s up, dog?’
  67. 2021 Tuesday E: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 109,463,210 confirmed cases, +395,652, 2,416,661, confirmed deaths, +11,115, and 61,541,518 confirmed recoveries, +246,066.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 28,014,875 confirmed cases, up 75,283 from yesterday’s reporting, 492,385 confirmed deaths, UP 1,723, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries with NO UPDATES NOW in at least three weeks now (this number no longer even shows up).  This tells us the Biden administration no longer wants them reported.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 162,525 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, YOU claimed you had a plan to defeat the lab-engineered Panda Pandemic, what the hell are YOU going to do about it- sit on your ass playing pattycake with your grandchildren and blame everything on Donald Trump.
  68. 2021 Tuesday F: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,490,585 confirmed cases, 47,141 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,606 confirmed cases, 426 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 331,305 confirmed cases, 4,739 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Massachusetts: currently, they have 560,576 confirmed cases, 15,567 confirmed deaths but NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Amazing how very few states in the country report their recovery numbers.  Ask yourselves, WHY?  What purpose does it serve to provide case numbers, numbers of fatalities but nary a number of folks who have beat this vile Chi-Com virus.  What’s up with that?
  69. 2021 Tuesday G: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 734,575 confirmed cases, 5,441 confirmed deaths, and 673,908 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other country- Spain: they have 3,096,343 confirmed cases of the Beijing Bug, 65,979 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries.   We will say this: the primary purpose of the Chi-Vi was to remove the threat of Trump- the Chi-Coms accomplished that goal.  The secondary goal (or so we believe) is to ‘cleanse the world’ of the old, the infirm, the sick, and the mentally disabled.  Anyone else who died from this Wuhan Institute of Virology lab-engineered virus is just collateral damage.  Shame on the Chi-Coms!
  70. 2021 Tuesday H:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,522.75 UP 64.35 points (+0.020%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,047.40, DOWN 47.98 points (-0.34%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,932.59, DOWN 2.24 points (-0.57%).  The price of GOLD is $1,791.20 per troy oz., -7.80 (-0.43%) while the price of SILVER is $27.30 per troy ounce, -0.03 (-0.11%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,269.40 per troy oz, -10.20 (-0.80%) while the price of COPPER is $3.83 per pound, -0.00 (-0.07%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,388.20 per troy oz, +5.60 (+0.24%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $59.78 per barrel, -0.27 (-0.45%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.45 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Iranian Rial equals 42,000.00 (same as last week).  That’s what a terrorism-based economy gets you.  Next, here is the conversion for one U.S. dollar and Bitcoin: 0.000020.  In other economic news, thanks to the Chi-Coms, airline passengers in the U.S. dropped by 20-percent in 2020.
  71. 2021 Tuesday E: Burmese police (military thugs) charge imprisoned democratically elected leader Aung San Suu Kyi with a ‘good one.’  They have accused her of violating the country’s natural-disaster management law, previously used against people who violated coronavirus restrictions.  The military who detained Suu Kyi on February 1, already faces charges for illegally importing walkie-talkies and could hold her indefinitely in prison sans charges.  Protesters in the country continue defying the military and demand her release.  
  72. 2021 Tuesday F: In Texas, winter storm conditions are trashing the Lone Star state what with 4 million Texans in the dark due to crumbling windmills and solar farms, neither of which are able to produce energy in a freak winter storm like this one that snow piled up across the state.  Rotating blackouts (welcome to California) make matters even worse and at present, at least 10 people have died in the insane wintry conditions.  In Washington, D.C., Joe Biden has issued a disaster declaration so FEMA can mobilize and begin providing citizens of the state with the life-saving aid they need.  Maybe the winter storms will stop the illegal alien invasion along the border with Mexico.   
  73. 2021 Tuesday G: The U.S. urges the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels to stop conducting cross-border raids into Saudi Arabia and to stop drone attacks on Saudi infrastructure and civilians and to join in U.S.-backed peace talks to bring peace to the region.  However, since Secretary of State Anthony Blinken removed the Houthis from the list of terrorist groups, the jihadist Shiite group has stepped up attacks on Saudi Arabia.  You know, we should sell some neutron bombs to the Saudis and permit them to do what they must do: eliminate this terrorist threat.   In other exciting news, the Office of the 45th President put out a lengthy statement in which, he slams- rightfully so- Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell for being the lowlife POS that he is.
  74. 2021 Tuesday H: The Massachusetts Climate ‘Czar’ David Ismay resigned today after video of him holding a Zoom call with similar bozos in Vermont surfaced.  Apparently, Mr. Ismay believes that ‘seniors on fixed income, average citizens, and privately owned cars for energy usage and CO2 emissions’ and went onto say that average citizens and seniors would have to suffer in order to reach the draconian Green New Deal goals imposed on this people of this once prosperous New England state.    Once again, we see the insensitivity of liberals and RINOs who could care less about average folks and the vulnerable among us so long as they continue pushing this self-enrichment scheme not just in our country but around the world.  Look at flipping Texas, folks, home of massive quantities of domestic energy yet people, their pets, and livestock are freezing in this arctic chill that is trashing the Midwest all because they put far too much emphasis on RENEWABLE sources of energy which are half-assed at best.  It’s time to throw the Green New Deal and every a—hole connected to it out of office and into the dumpster of snake oil salespersons.   
  75. 2021 Tuesday I: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1634 with a $96 million on the line: 01, 36, 44, 54, 66, and Mega 10.  Out of 77,861 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO mega for a prize of $134,768.
  76. 2021 Tuesday J: In the final news for the evening, Governor Gavin Newsom of California is allowing mail-in ballots to EVERY California voter for 2021.  The question is, WHY would the soon-to-be-former governor do this?  Because he is going to lose his seat.  However, we will say this: IF Newsom somehow survives the recall election- NO one will ever have to doubt that the 2020 Elections were indeed stolen, in the presidential election and the Senate seats in Georgia and the one in Michigan.  This will be rock-solid proof that the ONLY reason WHY anyone would resort to mail-in ballots is because they are going to steal an election.  What are you going to do, Governor Newsom?  Are you going to prove that Democrats and RINOs manipulate and steal elections or are you going to go down like a man?

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Still fighting to remain an integral part of the rock world, UFO was touring around the world in support of “High Stakes and Dangerous Men,” and following a stop in Tokyo, the band released this superb live recording: “Live in Tokyo 1992” on July 21, 1992.  The lineup that recorded the aforementioned studio album- Phil Mogg (vocals), the return of Pete Way (bass), Laurence Archer (guitars/backing vocals), Clive Edwards (drums), and famed session and Rainbow and Ozzie Osbourne keyboardist Don Airey- and man, what a lineup they were.  People whine and moan, ‘there’s no Michael Schenker, there’s no Paul Chapman which is true but there is Lawrence Archer and this guy can rock.  In a world in which great rock guitarists are as difficult to find as are top-rank NFL quarterbacks, this guy is pretty doggone good.  We hope you will seek this album out and consider making it a part of your morning rock list- you will be glad you did.

[i] 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.

[ii] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.

[iii] This is a HOKEY pseudo-science, much like palm-reading and tarot cards to forecast the future.  The Sun is the prime driver of climate change across our Solar System, no matter what that crackpot loony tunes, pot-smoking loser, Bill Nye the ‘Science Guy’ claims.  Climate on all nine planets (yes, Pluto is a planet) is driven by or the lack of solar flares, sunspots, and solar winds.  Do not allow leftist scumbags to terrorize you into believing something that simply that is impossible for humanity to cause.  Consider this: in the previous century, s-o-o-o many bombs were dropped, so  many artillery shells rained down upon humanity, and so many nuclear weapons tests below ground, at ground level, in the atmosphere, and in the oceans occurred and yet, here we are.  Next time some loser attempts to frighten you into surrendering all of your liberties to ‘save the planet,’ tell them to go suck an un-circumcised schlong and to shut the f**k up.  You will feel much better.

[iv] We look forward to doing the music of this famed funk-rock band.  The Ohio Players are amazing

[v] Many people believe that President Barack Hussein Obama deserves an asterisk after his name in the history books seeing as how he never cleared up the matter of his birthplace.  Yes, he did present a birth certificate of sorts but many contend it was a forgery and that he should be removed completely from the history books of the United States.

[vi] Islam.

I contend the ERUPTION of transgenderism can be blamed on three things: factory farming, the environment, and left-wing control of the educational system

There was a time when society sought to help individuals who were confused, parents could do that for their kids before ultra-leftist LGBTQIA+ activists forced states into outlawing gay conversion therapy or gender dysphoria psychological help thus forcing these confused and unhappy young people to remain caught in this web of depression, unhappiness, and misery.

WINTER SESSION 2021

BLOG POST #3,761 AT THE AICP-END

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 630

Fifteen years ago, transgenderism was invisible…

Los Angeles, CA 93064, 02-16-2021 Tuesday:   Yesterday, I began discussing how we have arrived at a time in Western Tradition in which, we are upending all of society to defend the misguided feelings of an infinitesimal and insignificant minority of our fellow citizens: transgender people.[i]  How is it we have arrived here?  How is it we are throwing out 10,000 years of recorded human history onto the back yard incinerator, history in which, people had many things in common.  

They shared common mores and values such as ‘marriage is the union of one man and one woman,’ that ‘homosexuality, although tolerated in many places, was still viewed as aberrant behavior.  It also is the beginning of the downfall of great cultures and civilizations until the past 12 years or so when suddenly all things perverse and abnormal became accepted almost overnight. 

The Romans ridiculed the Greeks, a culture from which, they stole everything and then after the Republic became the Empire, the rot set in and all sexually deviant forms of comportment began to debase their society, fray the mores that kept them on top, and collapsed their foundation so that other stronger cultures easily overwhelmed the once invincible civilization.  

We have seen gay Americans saying, “We have suffered the same as black Americans have[ii] and thus deserve the same rights, protections, and aid given to them.”  Black Americans are angry at speech such as this as you cannot equate being homosexual to being black.  To make such an argument is to demonstrate one’s stupidity for the world to see, yet the stupidity is on display for all including our enemies.   

What’s more, you also cannot equate being kept in second-class citizenship the same as keeping oneself in the closet.  Black people (other than Michael Jackson) cannot change their skin color (nor can any other nonwhite minority) whereas a gay person can become heterosexual if he or she so desires (other than for a trivial minority that genuinely believes they emerged from the womb that way). 

The issue of transgenderism is even more perplexing as only recently has there been an outbreak of people claiming themselves to be something they simply are not.  The question is WHY is this a sudden occurrence?  I believe it arises from several things which include the food chain, the environment, and education

Everyone is aware that our food supply no longer is unadulterated when in fact it has long been compromised.  There have long been questions about factory farms and especially questions about dairy foods, especially the milk supply, which is full of added hormones, antibiotics, and whatever else helps dairy farmers utilize to achieve greater yields and ‘healthier animals.’  Very few have studied the long-term effects of such manipulation of dairy products (and livestock) on human beings, especially young human beings.

We are all aware of gynecomastia in young men,  how they find themselves growing breasts by their teenage years and it’s due to consumption of milk and dairy- hence why there is a push for organic foods and alternative foods like almond, rice, and soy milks.  If observable physical changes are evident, then there must be vast, unseen physiological changes in young people, changes we now are witnessing all around us as young boys claim to be young girls and young girls claim to be young boys.

Yet, we also know that many among the transgender community- even when they become the complete opposite of what they were born- remain unhappy with their lives, wish they could transform back to their original gender, and that the rate of suicide and other antisocial behaviors increase such as substance abuse. 

While the miserable can blame their moribund feelings on wider society ‘not accepting them,’ something with which, I wholeheartedly disagree because society now seems to go out of its way to celebrate these ‘changelings,’ to laud them, to put them on pedestals above normal human society and yet, they still remain tragically unhappy.

There was a time when society sought to help individuals who were confused, parents could do that for their kids before ultra-leftist LGBTQIA+ activists forced states into outlawing gay conversion therapy or gender dysphoria psychological help thus forcing these confused and unhappy young people to remain caught in this web of depression, unhappiness, and misery.[iii]

The next step in this societal devolution occurred when we said that boys who believe they are girls can compete in the school sports of the gender with which, they CLAIM to identify.  Thus, a male with both testicles intact, endowed with male sex hormones, body mass and strength can compete against girls, most of whom cannot match any of their transgender female team mates.  It is indeed unfair and 20 years ago, NONE of this insanity would have been permitted.

In allowing this, we have destroyed girls’ and women’s sports by transforming our country into an East Germany-like country where males with the aid of ‘science’ transform into females so they could beat fellow athletes of the world in the Summer Olympics.  Like all communist societies, the foundations are erected atop a body of lies, to the point that eventually, IOC professionals had to test athletes from Eastern European Soviet bloc countries and China and elsewhere because they were all fraudulent, ersatz, and unqualified to compete. 

Now, we seek to do it here, to humor a microscopic few and to make a mockery of everything else.  I say, we need a third category of sports- transgender sports- with which to allow girls to compete with girls (and to share the same locker rooms), boys to compete with boys (likewise), and transgender folks to compete with one another.  I think it makes more sense to construct a third set of bathroom and locker room facilities on the campuses of every school than the price we pay for corrupting girls’ and women’s sports.

Let me know what you think and remember- this is an honest discussion, not one based on prejudice, bigotry, or fear.  If we don’t halt the corruption of our society, some other culture will surpass us and like the Ancient Greeks were to the Romans, we will become their servants.  

We will return tomorrow.

Today and tomorrow, we are going to share TWO CDs with you, one by the Jefferson Starship while the second is the first solo CD by vocalist Marty Balin, and one he released a few years earlier shortly after he left the Jefferson Airplane.  The album by the Jefferson Starship is their follow-up to “Red Octopus,” “Spitfire,” which came out in 1976.  Although it did not contain a hit on the magnitude of “Miracles,” it still went Gold then Platinum being a great CD—one that we highly recommend to our fans and the JA-JS fan base.  Tomorrow: the Marty Balin solo CD…

ENDNOTES:


[i] I get it.  We live in the time of everyone gets a trophy, no one is laughed at, ridiculed, picked on, or mistreated.  While a good thing, it also delays and/or prohibits people maturing into strong, solid citizens, ones who can defend themselves and become successful in life.  In a time in which, we put every young person over our shoulders and burp them- up to age 30 or so- it’s no wonder we have all these misfits in society.  Instead of telling little Billy he can wear a dress, you give him a good smack on his behind and say, “NO, Billy, you are a boy and you will act like a boy.  If you still feel mixed-up at age 18, I suggest you obtain counseling and if that still does not do the trick, then at least your mother and I got you to what society now tells us is adulthood- age 18- when you move the hell out of the house and into your own place.  

[ii] This, in truth, is the honest-to-God BIG LIE.  Gays comparing their treatment to that of blacks and expecting the blacks to rally to them. 

[iii] It once was society’s duty to help the emotionally disabled, the mentally challenged, and the economically disadvantaged whereas now, it is our duty to import illegal aliens, transgenders seeking asylum, and dispossessed people in need of someone to care for them.

[iv] As can the explosion of homosexuality.
