DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 602
75. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, MARCH 16, 2021 UPDATE A:
DAY FIFTY-SIX OF THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION
When it comes to solving the border crisis, there is one policy that will solve it: build the wall and deport them all. Now. Period. Otherwise, it’s minefields, antipersonnel and antivehicle obstacles, electrified fencing, and even alligators in the Rio Grande…
- 2021 Tuesday: FOREIGN NEWS- Intelligence analysts now report that both the Russians and their Iranian lackeys interfered in the 2020 Presidential Election to undermine and defeat Donald Trump while pushing Methuselah Joe Biden into the White House, someone easier to control and who would put America LAST rather than FIRST as President Donald J. Trump did. No one is screaming and wailing like a bunch of banshees over 2020 Election interference while all the while they still snivel that ‘Trump stole the election in 2016 with Russian help.’ Wah, wah, wah.
- 2021 Tuesday A: In other FOREIGN NEWS- the ‘Joe Biden White House’ is confused as to WHY Kim Jong Un won’t respond to feelers put forward by the ‘46th president.’ Kim’s sister, Kim Yo-jong is urging a hardline stance against the ‘Biden administration’ seeing as how a stumbling Joe Biden on the campaign trail called her brother- the Supreme Ruler- a thug and that he wouldn’t deal with the North Koreans if they did not denuclearize. Now, ‘Chi-Com Joe’ is puzzled as to why Kim won’t respond to him other than to demand he halt the WAR GAMES with South Korea. Perhaps it’s this: the Iranians called Joe Biden a second-class idiot today, not even a first-class dimwit. That sucks and yet, Joe is still giving the Iranians several billion dollars. Gee whiz. Meanwhile, former Bolivian President Jeanine Anez has entered prison to do a four-month stretch for supposedly trying to engineer a coup against socialist thug Evo Morales.
- 2021 Tuesday B: Border Disaster News- The ‘Biden administration’ announces plans to house at least 3,000 illegal alien brats in a downtown Dallas, Texas, convention center. Incapable of stopping the invasion along our southern border, Biden officials are busing the illegals all over the country and dumping them out in the streets saying to community leaders, ‘it’s on you.’ Many communities run these illegal aliens out of town on rails. We don’t want them; we won’t care for them. Meanwhile, moderate (almost a RINO) Florida Senator Rick Scott has authored a bill that will provide amnesty to so-called DREAMers in exchange for funds to complete the border wall. White House? Crickets…
- 2021 Tuesday C: Border Disaster News Pt. II- Joe Biden’s immigration plan does NOTHING to curb the illegal alien invasion. (Note- he has NO plan. Goldie). Next, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas defends his crap-assed performance of taking care of illegal alien minors along the border. His plan calls for them to be sardined together in worse conditions than anything President Trump ordered. They sleep on cement floors, they get showers once a week, the food is shit, the babes are crying at night for their mothers, and this POS scumbag says he’s doing a ‘great job.’ Impeach this SOB. Regarding Secretary Mayorkas, this loser is passing the buck by saying, “We are repairing the system the last guy disbanded.” Sure. Speaking of immigration, leading House Dems say there’s a bleak outlook when it comes to passing a coherent immigration bill. (Note- this is the ONLY policy you need- build the wall and deport them all. Period. Goldie). In other ‘border news,’ 10 Iranian nationals have been arrested along the southern border.
- 2021 Tuesday D: Border Disaster News Pt. III- Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. Va., becomes the first top-level Democrat to declare the travesty of the southern border to be a “MAJOR CRISIS.” Thank you, senator, now do something to stop the invasion. Meanwhile, Congressman Steve Scalise, R-LA 1st congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden is doing everything he can to evade having to do something about the border catastrophe.’ Meanwhile, former New York state Congressman Peter King, R-NY 2nd congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden is doing whatever he can to deflect away from the predicament he created on the southern border by not stopping the tidal wave.’ Impeach Biden Now.
- 2021 Tuesday E: Political News Pt. I- House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, lets the Democrats have both barrels and then a reloaded both barrels over them trying to politicize the U.S. military, the National Guard, and federal law enforcement. They are recruiting trannys, gays, and unfit people to be the frontline in defending our nation, even offering FREE sex-change surgeries for enlisted men, women, and ‘things.’[i] We are going down. (Note- looks like ‘Groping Joe’ Biden is doing everything he can to HELP the Chi-Coms). Next, people are asking at Day #56 of the Biden administration, WHEN is ‘President Biden’ going to address the American people? The country’s citizens are growing worried that they have elected a vegetable to the highest job in the world. We concur.
- 2021 Tuesday F: Political News Pt. II- The ‘Joe Biden tax plan’ continues facing increased pushback from the GOP as it’s a social-re-engineering plan, one that will transfer wealth all over the place while killing jobs, putting more people into the street, and destroying society. Speaking of the Democrats, they claim to want to bring in Republican input for their ‘infrastructure plan’ (Note- their Green New Deal plan- Goldie) but so far have not met with Republicans. Next, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi is still trying to unseat Congresswoman Mariannette Miller-Meeks, R-IA 2nd congressional district, a woman whose race was certified and who has been serving in the House since taking the oath on January 3, 2021. Speaker Pelosi is trying to OVERTURN her lawful election. We must stop Mumbles. Meanwhile, Congresswoman Kat Cammack, R-FL 3rd congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden is doing EVERYTHING he can to circumvent the U.S. Congress.’
- 2021 Tuesday G: My Pillow’s Mike Lindell is launching several countersuits against the crooked Dominion Voting Systems company out of Canada, accusing them of ‘racketeering’ as they try to intimidate him into silence. We hope you get those scumbags, Mike, they have loads of explaining to do. Next, President Donald J. Trump calls the Washington Post, aka WAPO, ‘an example of media travesty’ after it lied about the conversation he held with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger earlier in the year. Regarding the Peach State, a judge in Georgia says he may order unsealing of the absentee ballots so investigators into election fraud in 2020 can perform a REAL audit.
- 2021 Tuesday H: Democratic Party News, Pt. I: Democrats in the U.S. Senate on the Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee are holding hearings on ‘housing in America.’ We know there is a shortage of housing right now because of the pandemic’s halt on new home construction. What the Democrats seek are multi-family home dwellings so they can force more people into living with one another which is wholly un-American. Yet that is what they do, they seek to bring Section 8 housing into a neighborhood near you. Meanwhile, GOP lawmakers are pushing back against Democrats by seeking to include natural gas and nuclear energy as part of our energy creation sources with which to augment unreliable renewable energy sources. Democrats want wind and solar period. Finally, Democrats are pushing Senate Dems to get rid of the filibuster which is putting pressure directly atop moderate Democrats like Joe Manchin, D-W. Va. (Note- the RNC is planning a counter-media blitz against the Democrats’ blitz on HOW GREAT the Chi-Vi Relief Bill is).
- 2021 Tuesday I: Political Correctness News- Columbia University is going to put on six different graduation ceremonies- a) Native American; b) Asian; c) Latino; d) LGBTQIA+; e) gringos; and f) first generation students and low-income students. Wow. Martin Luther King Jr. would be rolling over in his grave. For God’s Sake, people! Meanwhile, Project Veritas released video of Facebook execs discussing how to avoid governmental oversight, rules, regulations, and what they deem to be interference. Sadly for Facebook, 48 states currently have monopoly lawsuits going against FB.
- 2021 Tuesday J: U.S. ‘Enemies’ News- On his first trip to Asia, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, Democrat, takes it to the Chi-Coms for their regional coercion of their neighbors. Good for you but wait- don’t YOU have ties to the Chi-Coms, Secretary Blinken? We believe you do. This is all smoke and mirrors. Next, a recent Gallup poll says that MORE Americans now view the Chi-Coms as a major threat following the lab-engineered pandemic they created and then released. Meanwhile, the bastion of ‘freedom’- Russia- says it’s thinking of banning Facebook from their soil.
- 2021 Tuesday K: Popular Culture News- this year’s Grammy Awards were among the worst ever what with a drop from 18.7 million viewers last year to a pitiful 7.9 million this year. If you like watching hoochie mamas singing about that ‘Wet Hot Pu**y,” then good for you but people can see slut-bags seven days a week walking down the street. Next, the “Amityville Horror” killer Ronald De Feo Jr. died in the joint at age 69. Elsewhere, after Sharon Osbourne exercises the chutzpah to defend Piers Morgan on “The Talk,” the show goes into hiatus because the black chick, Sheryl Underwood’s feelings were hurt.
- 2021 Tuesday L: Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo News- there is speculation that ‘seven Cuomo judges- will rescue him from being removed from office. The investigation into “Killer Cuomo,” however continues as his accusers are undergoing depositions. Meanwhile, Joe Biden won’t demand that his fellow groper “Killer Cuomo” be ejected from making COVID-19 calls to encourage people to rush out and get the vaccine. Sexual deviates always stick together.
- 2021 Tuesday M: Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom News- Little Gavin is now out there crowing that ‘if he gets a chance, he will appoint a black woman- ANY black woman to fill Senator Dianne Feinstein’s seat.’ We didn’t know that Senator Feinstein was going anywhere anytime soon? Still, this is what liberals do when confronting the law, they begin promising to donate money to Planned Parenthood, wage war on the NRA, and do everything else liberals love. Too little too late. Newsom has awoken to the fact that he is probably going to lose his seat so he releases a commercial in which he blames HIS problems on: 1) the Far-Right; 2) QAnon; 3) Proud Boys; 4) Oath Keepers; 5) Donald J. Trump; 6) Newt Gingrich; 7) Mike Huckabee; 8) conspiracy theorists; and 9) everyone else he can blame HIS disasters upon and then some, i.e., white supremacists, racists, bigots, haters, and insurrectionists. Michael Reagan says living in California is like in the Germany of the 1930s. Could not have said it better ourselves. Thanks, Mike.
- 2021 Tuesday N: The National Rifle Association seeks to delay the deposing of its board members as the bankruptcy case makes it way through the courts. Meanwhile, Grover Norquist of Americans for Tax Reform says that ‘Joe Biden wants to raise tax rates higher than what the Chi-Coms have, especially on corporations, and in so doing will kill wages, destroy jobs, and eliminate retirement savings.’ He also said that ‘increasing utility rates is akin to raising the taxes although it’s not an official raising of taxes.’ By raising corporate taxes, it diminishes the return on investments which will destroy retirement programs. The government also seeks to legalize marijuana across the country so that it can reap the tax dollars.
- 2021 Tuesday O: National Guard troops from Guam visited the office of Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R- GA 14th congressional district, because she mentioned the name of the U.S. territory in a speech and referred to it as a ‘foreign nation.’[ii] She blasted their ‘visit’ as little more than a political stunt. Meanwhile, scientists are proposing to put a doomsday vault on the moon. Next, ex-Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin wants George Floyd’s 2019 arrest released to the jury in his trial. Meanwhile, New Mexico is advancing a bill that will allow assisted suicide for the terminally ill within their state.
- 2021 Tuesday P: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 120,505,974 confirmed cases, +657,693, 2,665,597, confirmed deaths, +11,956, and 68,325,205 confirmed recoveries, +293,341. Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,719,808 confirmed cases, up 43,163 from yesterday’s reporting, 541,030 confirmed deaths, UP 578, and 115,759,310 confirmed recoveries. Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them. It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump. Time to impeach this pathetic, senile drooling POS. NOW. NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 212,553 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- Vegetable Joe, in another two weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu. Note- Sweden becomes the latest nation to put a halt to further use of the AstraZeneca vaccine over pulmonary embolisms and blood clots. Meanwhile, Moderna starts a study in which, they will inoculate children and study the effects. Finally, that dimwit, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says, “inconvenient truths” came into play with our response to the China Virus crisis. (Note- the Federalist reports that Democrats want “COVID-19 passports but when it comes to asking for ID at election sites, nyet.”
- 2021 Tuesday Q: 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: 3,626,327 confirmed cases, 56,621 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,646 confirmed cases, 451 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same numbers for several days now). Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 353,322 confirmed cases, 5,192 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Wyoming, aka the Equality State: currently, they have 55,352 confirmed cases, 693 confirmed deaths, and 54,231 confirmed recoveries. Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 821,762 confirmed cases, 6,037 confirmed deaths, and 787,893 confirmed recoveries. Let’s look at one other country- Canada, the home of the Guess Who, Bachman-Turner Overdrive, and Rush: 915,868 cases of the old Wuhan Meat Market Malady, 22,519 confirmed deaths and 861,832 confirmed recoveries. Speaking of the Chi-Coms, what’s the point: communist nations ALWAYS lie- you know it and we know it.
- 2021 Tuesday R: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 32,825.95, DOWN 127.51 points (-0.39%). Next, the NASDAQ: 13,471.51, UP 11.859 points (+0.09%). Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,962.71, DOWN 6.23 points (-0.61%). The price of GOLD is $1,729.40 per troy oz., -1.50 (-0.09%) while the price of SILVER is $25.99 per troy ounce, -0.02 (-0.07%). The price of PLATINUM is $1,215.40 per troy oz, -3.70 (-0.30%) while the price of COPPER is $4.06 per pound, -0.01 (-0.34%). The price of PALLADIUM is $2,498.70 per troy oz, -0.02 (-0.50%). The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $64.91 per barrel, +0.10 (+0.15%) Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.51 Chi-Com yuan. Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.61. As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018. In Aruban florin, one greenback equals 1.78.
- 2021 Tuesday S: Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.856 per gallon, $3.558 in Hawaii, and $3.281 in Washington state. Time to allow the country to return to fracking, there Joe Biden. Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,058,245,351,045 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS. Cloward and Piven running amok. The country is going to implode.
- 2021 Tuesday T: In some shocking news, a stockpile of commercial grade fireworks blew up in Ontario, California, killing two people. The Ontario police chief said that officers were called on scene for another issue when the garage blew up killing the two and injuring others. Next, Joe Biden’s handlers are establishing a commission with which to study packing the U.S. Supreme Court as well as other courts. In other court news, Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, D-RI, sent a new letter to the FBI demanding a NEW investigation into U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Senator Whitehouse- a partisan POS- says the FBI investigation back in 2018 was ‘flawed’ and that witness information went into the circular file. What a scumbag.
- 2021 Tuesday U: Islamic jihadists attacked locals in Niger’s Tillaberi region killing at least 58 people and wounding countless others. The people were returning home from a cattle market in Banibangou when the jihadists came racing up on motorcycles and began lighting the startled villagers up. After they killed as many as they could and left the wounded to die, the reputed al-Qaida “B-team” then set local granaries ablaze in the hopes of causing famine throughout the region. Time for the French Foreign Legion to arrive on scene and begin exterminating these Boko Haram-loving murderers, rapists, and thugs.
- 2021 Tuesday V: NEWS FLASH: In Atlanta, Georgia, 8 people are shot dead at a massage parlor, most of the dead being female staffers. It appears that happy endings for the night were no more. The suspect whose image and car were captured on security tape was apprehended more than 100 miles south of the city. No one knows the motive yet; it could have been fraud, it could have been QAnon, it could have been someone gave the shooter the clap. We will await further developments.
- 2021 Tuesday W: Mega-Millions Draw #1642 with a jackpot of $93 million on the line tonight: 10, 41, 46, 52, 69, and Mega 08. Stay tuned for results on the winner(s). Out of 66,472 winning tickets, the highest winners were 37 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $437 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
While this might sound sexist, we don’t give a flying flip, old axmen are always in search of younger collaborators and thus we find German rocker Michael Schenker joining forces with fellow ‘axman’ Amy Schugar and her San Francisco rockers to deliver a great album. “Under Construction” came out on November 18, 2003 and joining the dynamic duo were Fred Robinson (guitars), Tory Edwards (violins), Mark Lehman (bass), and Matt Indes (drums). Some fans claim this album lifts their minds to higher, more ethereal levels, something with which we concur. Having been there for the original Psychedelic Era (and man, was it a good time), the second blossoming of psychedelica has brought new listeners into a timeless movement. If you want to hear some amazing music performed by some awesome musicians, this album is one that everyone should seek out and consider adding it to your collection. We think you will be extremely glad that you did.

TODAY IN HISTORY, TUESDAY MARCH 16, 2021
PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.
Tuesday, March 16, 2021:
[i] Jessie Jane Duff, GySgt. U.S.M.C. Retired says the purpose of the military is to break things and kill people, not to serve as some sort of laboratory for left-wing social scientists to transform our society into a freak show. The U.S. Army is second-guessing its gender-neutral policies after record numbers of young women can’t cut the mustard (but they can always like the jar). Instead of recognizing the differences between genders and working within that framework, the Pentagon is reducing standards for men so women can score better on their physical tests. It sounds like it’s getting to be time to move somewhere else because an army of gays and trannys is not going to defend our nation. Note- this is ALL Barack Hussein Obama’s fault- he’s the one who f**ked up the military.
[ii] Look, about ten years ago, Democratic Congressman Hank Johnson, Georgia, asked military leaders if MORE assets were sent to Guam would the island capsize and sink into the sea. This moron STILL sits in Congress. Whatever MTG said is nothing compared to this Rhodes scholar.
