What a disappointment to learn that ‘climate czar’ John F. “Lurch” Kerry was heavily invested in fossil fuel stocks until the Biden regime gave him his new gig…what a hypocritical POS

POLITICAL NEWS I- A POS Democrat in Lamar County, Texas, Gary O’Connor- chair of the county’s Democratic Party- is facing a barrage of calls demanding his resignation after he referred to Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, as an “Oreo.” This is a vile form of slander but when it comes from Democrats, seldom do they get in trouble. This punk needs to go NOW.

Orthodox Easter Monday

What a disappointment to learn that ‘climate czar’ John F. “Lurch” Kerry was heavily invested in fossil fuel stocks until the Biden regime gave him his new gig…what a hypocritical POS

  1. 2021 Monday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 154,172,596 confirmed cases, +667,259, 3,226,725  confirmed deaths, +10,434, and 132,290,056 confirmed recoveries, +85,346.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,229,445 confirmed cases, UP 38,851 from yesterday’s reporting, 591,514 confirmed deaths, UP 443,[i] and 25,907,570 confirmed recoveries, UP 129,706.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ii]   The FDA is giving Pfizer the okay to begin giving young people ages 12 to 16 the vaccinations next week.  
  2. 2021 Monday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 276,831 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another 421.44 days, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,812 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 186,702 deaths. 
  3. 2021 Monday B: COVID-19 STATISTICS in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,747,850 confirmed cases, 61,965 confirmed deaths, and 1,995,600 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,245,843 confirmed cases, 35,307 confirmed deaths, and 1,812,615 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 32,654 confirmed cases, 484 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 409,585 confirmed cases, 5,567 confirmed deaths, and 200,937 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s recovery numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Maine, a place with two horrible senators: they have 62,092 confirmed cases, 790 confirmed deaths, but 0 confirmed recoveries as they won’t mention them.[iii]   
  4. 2021 Monday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 838,621 confirmed cases, 6,367 confirmed deaths, and 830,995 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Qatar, a country overloaded with way too many jihadists: 207,592 cases of the virus, 480 confirmed deaths and 194,090 confirmed recoveries.[iv]     
  5. 2021 Monday D:  STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,113.23, UP 238.38 points (+0.70%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,895.12, DOWN 67.56 points (-0.48%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,192.66, UP 11.49 points (+0.27%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $64.59 per barrel, +0.08 (+0.12%).  The price of GOLD is $1,790.30 per troy oz., -1.50 (-0.08%) while the price of SILVER is $26.90 per troy ounce, -0.06 (-0.22%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,235.00 per troy oz, +4.80 (+0.40%) while the price of COPPER is $4.51 per pound, -0.02 (-0.43%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,972.70 per troy oz, +2.02 (+0.07%).[vi] The price of RHODIUM is $29,500.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%).[vii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.23.     In Nigerian Naira, one greenback equals 408.50 and in Norwegian Krone, a buck equals 8.29 and in Omani Rial, one dollar equals 0.39 of theirs.[viii]  
  6. 2021 Monday E: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE FOUR STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.045 per gallon, $2.776 in Florida, $3.781 in Hawaii, and $3.474 in Washington state.[ix]    Let’s look at one other location- New Jersey: $2.944.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the eighth lowest gasoline price in the world- Turkmenistan: $1.621 per U.S. Gallon.[x]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,244,516,078,045 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  7. 2021 Monday F: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS- A new report says that Xi Jinping- dictator of the People’s Republic of (Communist) China and possible overlord of the world- has been planning on taking control of the Internet since 2017.  Only President Donald J. Trump stood in his way and look at what happened to the 45th president.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, we also learn today that Hunter Biden still maintains a stake in a Chi-Com equity firm.   Also regarding the Chi-Coms, the United Kingdom announces it’s going to step up the fight against Chi-Com intelligence-gathering operations around the world.  In other news regarding the communist Chinese, as if we don’t have issues with the thugs in Beijing already, it appears that the out-of-control rocket they launched into the atmosphere as part of their space program could come down somewhere in the United States.  That’s the Chi-Coms for you.  Finally, in other foreign/overseas news,. Hillary Rodham Clinton says that the ‘Afghan troop pullout will bolster the Taliban and other terrorists.’
  8. 2021 Monday G: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE- The Biden regime plans on reuniting illegal alien families that have been separated while in custody.  Awesome, Joe, simply awesome.  We say, ‘reunite them in their home countries.’  Meanwhile, people are blasting “Kooky Kamala” Harris over her being given new responsibilities but still cannot find time to visit the U.S.-Mexico border.  WTF?
  9. 2021 Monday H: JOE BIDEN REGIME NEWS I- Senator John Kennedy, R-LA, says there’s NOTHING free in the Biden regime’s infrastructure plan.  Amen.  Regarding the ‘infrastructure bill,’ Senator Elizabeth Warren, DS-MA, supports the idea of a ‘Democrat-backed infrastructure bill without any Republicans.’   Meanwhile, the Biden regime is raising the annual quota on refugee resettlement from 15,000 under President Donald J. Trump to 62,500.  WTF!  Speaking of the 45th president, he says that the ‘2020 Presidential Election will forever be remembered as the “BIG LIE,” which it most definitely was.
  10. 2021 Monday I: POLITICAL NEWS I- A POS Democrat in Lamar County, Texas, Gary O’Connor- chair of the county’s Democratic Party- is facing a barrage of calls demanding his resignation after he referred to Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, as an “Oreo.”  This is a vile form of slander but when it comes from Democrats, seldom do they get in trouble.  This punk needs to go NOW.   Speaking of the Lone Star State, many see the GOP wins as signs of what awaits the Republican Party in 2022.   Speaking of the BIG Texas wins, President Donald J. Trump says that the Dems, NOT the RINOs, are giving him credit for what happened in Texas.  Speaking of RINOs, GOP pundits expect that Congresswoman Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, will be out of the party’s leadership by the end of the month.
  11. 2021 Monday J: POLITICAL NEWS II-  In Florida, some RINO Republicans are expressing fear over the new voting law designed to halt corruption and fraud.  They fear it could backfire on them, the terrified, trembling milquetoasts.  Oh, boohoo.  Stop sniveling, RINOs.  Next, people are outraged over the new WOKE CIA recruiting video.  Are we hiring the best or are we hiring pansies with weak minds?  How embarrassing.  Next, former Congressman Peter King, R-NY 2nd congressional district, says the ‘voters are fed-up’ with Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Gov, aka the Gropin’ Gov.  In other shocking news, we now learn that Climate Czar John F. Kerry was making BIG BUCKS from fossil fuel investments prior to becoming the ‘climate czar,’ at which time he offloaded them.  What a loser.
  12. 2021 Monday K: POLITICAL NEWS III- The U.S. Supreme Court won’t take a Maryland case regarding bump stocks.   Speaking of SCOTUS, Justice Clarence Thomas backs a former West Point cadet’s right to sue the academy over an alleged rape.   Elsewhere, Minnesota state Attorney General Keith Ellison says he is in favor of trying BAD COPS at the International Criminal Court in the Hague.  Meanwhile, it would appear that John McCain’s widow Cindy, is on the side against the Arizona 2020 Presidential Election audit which puts her up against state GOP leader Dr. Kelli Ward.  (Note- someone should suggest to Cindy she become a Democrat.  Enough is enough).
  13. 2021 Monday L: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I- In Chicago over the past weekend, 7 people were shot dead while another 46 were wounded.  Nary a peep in protest to the ongoing mass shootings in the Windy City.   Speaking of guns, the FBI says gun sales are UP for the 16th straight month as people are rushing out to buy guns in advance of all the leftwing riotous thugs roaming the streets.  Good.  We sure the hell are buying guns.  Elsewhere, the judge deciding the NRA bankruptcy case will have a ruling sometime next week.
  14. 2021 Monday M: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II- Racing champion Bobby Unser, an Indy 500 winner,   and a member of racing family elite, died at the age of 89.  Next, after 27 years of wedded bliss, Bill and Melinda Gates are throwing in the towel.   Elsewhere, the New Jersey Pine Mountain Golf Club has granted full access to women.  Wow.  Kind of late.  Moving on, an appeals court is going to decide a California law regarding trannys participating in scholastic sports.   Next, Intel is going to invest $3.5 billion in a chip-manufacturing plant in New Mexico.  Finally, scientists are breeding sea stars with which to repopulate and rebab the world’s warming oceans.  They are doing this in laboratories.  Uh, okay.

FF. 1954 Monday: Fighting continues at Dien Bien Phu. At Isabelle, French Foreign Legionnaires send out combat patrols to clear communist approach trenches ringing them on all sides. Fighting is fierce in the style of World War I with hand grenades, knives, rifle butts, and brass knuckles. Once again, the communists are driven away, the Foreign Legionnaires bring in captured weapons to augment what they have left. In the main camp, officers are going through the hospital seeking anyone who can load or fire a weapon to return to duty in defense of the camp. The walking wounded pick up arms and head back to the fight. It is US or it is THEM and when it comes to communists, the only good communists are dead communists.

  59. 2017 Wednesday: A NATO convoy navigating the streets of Kabul, Afghanistan, are attacked by suicide bombers.  In the ensuing blast and aftermath, eight civilians are blown to bits while another 28 suffer injuries in varying degrees.  Elsewhere, the government of Puerto Rico files for the largest government bankruptcy in U.S. history on this date.
  60. 2018 Thursday: On this date, the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences votes to expel two perverts, Bill Cosby, and Roman Polanski.  Meanwhile, Vice President Mike Pence postponed his upcoming visit to Brazil so increased effort could be put into the upcoming summit between President Donald J. Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un.  Elsewhere, President Trump signs an executive order giving greater freedoms to faith-based initiatives which the Obama-Biden administration did everything to crush.
  61. 2019 Friday: The California state senate passes a bill that is highly unconstitutional, one that would prevent President Donald J. Trump from appearing on either the primary or the November ballot (should he win the nomination) unless he hands his tax records over for scrutiny by his enemies.  This BS bill would not stand. 
  62. 2020 Sunday: Today, global confirmed cases of ‘communist China’s gift to the world,’ COVID-19, aka the Kung Flu, stand at 3,506,729; confirmed deaths stand at 247,470, and recovered cases stand at 1,125,236.  In the United States, confirmed cases are 1,183,633; confirmed deaths rest at 68,276; and confirmed recoveries are 153,204.  Cases in China?  Not going to share them because they never change; such is communism.  Anyhow, President Donald J. Trump does a digital town hall from the Lincoln Memorial with Fox News Channel.  Of course, his Democrat enemies blast him for ‘doing it there.’  “Anywhere else other than the Lincoln Memorial” is what they cry and whine but anywhere Trump would have done it would have met the exact same criticisms.   
  63. 2021 Monday:  Stick around folks…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Before there was Badfinger, there was the Iveys, a band that formed in Swansea, Wales, and became the first outside band signed to the Beatles’ Apple label.  The group consisted of Pete Ham (lead and backing vocals, lead guitar, and keyboards), Tom Evans (lead and backing vocals, rhythm guitar), Ron Griffiths (bass guitar, lead and backing vocals), and Mike Gibbins (drums and percussion, backing and lead vocals).  The group’s first album, “Maybe Tomorrow,” came out on July 04, 1969, and was slated to be issued worldwide; however, for some still unknown reason, it only hit record stores in Japan, West Germany, and Italy which would make this album an expensive collector’s choice once they changed their name from the Iveys to Badfinger and became a massive global phenomenon.  We wholly recommend this album as it’s one for the history books, the start of something amazing as well as extremely tragic which is why we recommend it with as much vigor as we possibly can.   At Amazon.com, you can get the CD for about $20 while on vinyl, it goes for around $200.00.  Seek it out and give it a listen- enjoy.

ENDNOTES:


[i] We began promoting the music of the Troggs on Monday, 06-January-2020 and then Google Blogger slammed the door shut on us.  Go figure.  We hope to return to presenting the music of the greatest bands in the world one day so please, remain vigilant for the day that we do.

[ii] Martin Windrow’s “The Last Valley” De Capo Press (2006) is a main source of information on this brave fight against godless communism as is Time-Life Books series on Vietnam. 

[iii] We began promoting the music of this legendary British blues-rock band, Ten Years After, beginning on Tuesday, 01-March-2011 through Thursday, 24-March-2011.  We hope you will check them out because their music is as important today as it was 50 years ago.  Their performance at Woodstock in 1969 made them megastars.
