2021 Friday: JOE BIDEN NEWS- Those of us who sat mouths agape yesterday watching Joe Biden stumble through his first press conference in 65 days were even more shocked today when what everyone knew to be true was proven true by photos. The discombobulated Biden was using a binder full of cheat sheets and crib notes and his list of reporters featured their names and photos of their faces and still he f**ked up calling them by the wrong names.

Trump and that Trump’s ‘people’ (lawyer Michael Cohen) threatened the pitiful thing to be quiet.  This was later disproven, and the actress is paying Trump money she owes him via a lawsuit while Avenatti is going to federal prison.  Finally, a U.S. Army soldier receives the first transplant of a penis and scrotum at John Hopkins University in Maryland.

  77. 2021 Friday: JOE BIDEN NEWS– Those of us who sat mouths agape yesterday watching Joe Biden stumble through his first press conference in 65 days were even more shocked today when what everyone knew to be true was proven true by photos.  The discombobulated Biden was using a binder full of cheat sheets and crib notes and his list of reporters featured their names and photos of their faces and still he f**ked up calling them by the wrong names.  Most Americans are appalled enough already knowing that this fuddled old fool STOLE the 2020 Presidential Election but are even more so now that a majority of Americans realize we have a vegetable in the White House.  WTF is happening to our country.  Next, the White House says that Joe Biden is going to beef up gun control measures by scrawling his chicken scratch on more executive orders.  F**k you, Joe, NO one is taking our guns.
  78. 2021 Friday A: “RACIST! NEWS”/WHAT’S RACIST TODAY– Oakland, California Mayor and crackpot political hack Libby Schaaf backs an income supplement program that will help disadvantaged black folks but won’t help equally disadvantaged white folks living in that corrupt East Bay city.  Wow.  Next, a Minnesota-based dinner theater scraps a presentation of “Cinderella” because the cast was ‘too white.’   Meanwhile, black leaders zero in on Democrat holdouts in the U.S. Senate who do not want to toss the filibuster onto the heap.  Thus, they are going to accuse them of being racists 24/7/365 with the Reverend Al Sharpton at the head of the pack of accusers.[xi]  What a bunch of crap.   Elsewhere, the top editor at the Journal of the American Medical Association, aka JAMA- Howard Bauchner- found himself sidelined over a tweet and podcast he made in which he said: “No physician is racist, so how can there be structural racism in health care?”  Not good, Dr. B., black doctors became angry and out you go.  Get with it man!
  79. 2021 Friday B: LIBERAL STUPIDITY– Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascon- a George Soros appointee- is not going to try 20-year-old murderous thug Jalen Yoakum as an adult.  This means the POS will be back on the streets in five years.  When is L.A. County going to remove this worthless scumbag?  Meanwhile, the state of Oregon is going to go after concealed carry permits via a new direction by creating a patchwork of gun-free zones all over the place making it difficult for gun owners to carry their lawfully-owned firearms and avoid felonies.  Thugs, of course, will still be packing.  No wonder eastern Oregon wants to break off from the lunatics in the western portion.   Elsewhere, Dems in the Peach State are going berserk over Governor Brian Kemp signing the new voting rights bill.  Massachusetts phony Native American Senator Lizzie “Borden” Warren tweeted that ‘the man sitting in Stacey Abrams chair (good one, Lizzie, good one) is taking the state back to JIM CROW!”[xii]  In fact, a state black lawmaker, Park Cannon, was arrested for banging on the governor’s door after the cops told her to stop knocking.  Stupid skank.[xiii]   Finally, the White House says, ‘Joe Biden’ is worried about the Georgia voting rights law.[xiv]
  80. 2021 Friday C: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE– Congressman Burgess Owens, R-UT 4th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden owes border officials a big apology for creating the massive tsunami surge of illegal aliens flooding across our border.’  Meanwhile, as GOP lawmakers visit the overwhelmed southern border, Senator Mike Lee, R-OR, said that across the Rio Grande River, smugglers, gangbangers, and cartel trash were taunting them.[xv]  Elsewhere, the GOP is demanding that the news media be allowed to film along the southern border so the nation can see what the heck is going on down there with illegal aliens as thick as cockroaches in a Tijuana backstreet whore house rushing across it.  Time to do some pest control, folks.  Finally, it would appear that every sitting GOP U.S. senator is down at the border today blasting the inept Joe Biden administration.
  81. 2021 Friday D: JOE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION NEWS– thanks to Joe Biden’s incredibly stupid policies on energy production and usage, the U.S. is back to importing oil, much of which is Russian oil, and our guy has the nerve to call Putin a “Killer.”  WTF?   Meanwhile, former Ohio treasurer and candidate for Senator Rob Portman’s seat when he steps down at the end of his term said that ‘Joe Biden isn’t all there.’  Go figure.  Next, Joe Biden may invite Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping to a virtual climate summit.  Wow.  Amazing, Joe, simply amazing. 
  82. 2021 Friday E: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– USC reaches a settlement of $852 million following it acknowledging that a former campus gynecologist Dr. George Tyndall- charged with five counts of sexual abuse- abused hundreds of female students while employed at the University of Southern California.  The crimes allegedly occurred between 2011 and 2015.  Wow.  Lock him up.  Meanwhile, Senator Bernie Sanders, DS-VT, and rapper Killer Mike are meeting with folks in Bessemer, Alabama, the site of a big battle to unionize.  Liberal icon Amazon is doing battle with its workers seeking to unionize the plant to seek better wages and even better treatment.  Amazon will probably move the plant to Puerto Rico.  Be careful.
  83. 2021 Friday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– Governor Asa Hutchinson, R-AR, signs a bill ending trannys from participating in girls and women’s sports.  Excellent.  As we have repeatedly said, IF trannys are so determined to compete in sports, it’s far easier to create a third category of sports as well as separate locker rooms.  Let them have at it and we suspect that tranny sports would have far more fans than either girls/women’s or boys/men’s sports.  It’s like roller derby, everyone loves watching the women more so than men so how about creating a third category of competitive sports, you know, for the mentally ill- oh, wait, did we just say that?  Sorry.  Elsewhere, Dominion Voting Systems, the ALLEGEDLY CORRUPT ORGANIZATION THAT STEALS ELECTIONS FOR THE HIGHEST BIDDER- is slapping Fox News Channel with a $1.6 billion lawsuit alleging FNC slandered their fine, fine company.  Sounds like deflection to us or at least so says our attorneys.
  84. 2021 Friday G: FOREIGN/OVERSEAS NEWS– Since Kim Jong Un and North Korea have become belligerent again what with Joe Biden talking s**t about them, elements of the 1st Armored Division are deploying to South Korea.  Next, the People’s Republic of China, aka the Chi-Coms, have slapped reciprocal sanctions onto the European Union for having slapped human rights sanctions on them.  Elsewhere, the container ship beached in the Suez Canal threatens to be there for several months blocking passage through the incredibly important waterway.  This, of course, will lead to higher energy prices as well as drive up the cost of goods around the world.  Glenn Beck raised the specter as to whether someone hacked into the controls of the ship and caused it to run aground.  We thought this was possible after two U.S. Navy ships collided with commercial freighters back in 2017.  Two guided-missile destroyers, the USS Fitzgerald and the USS John S. McCain ran into other ships back in June and August of that year for which there was no real explanation.  Could it be the Chi-Coms, the Russians, or some other nefarious unseen actor is able to cause such mishaps?  Sure, seems possible to us…
  85. 2021 Friday H: MEDICAL NEWS– Former Centers for Disease Control- the CDC- Director Robert Redfield says that the ‘COVID-19 bat flu virus did indeed escape from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.’  The question is, was it a purposeful release?  Meanwhile, Dr. Scott Atlas said to Glenn Beck today that ‘science and expertise have become compromised, politicized, and that the demand for social distancing of six-feet or more (or less) is based on pseudo-science.’  God bless you.  Next, the U.S. pulls over 95-percent of its stockpiled PPE gowns over safety issues.  Must be the crap manufactured in communist China.  Moving on, the cities of Boston, Newark, and Norfolk will become mega-vaccination sites on the East Coast.  Elsewhere, Bill Gates says ‘life will probably be back to normal by 2022.’  Bill- STFU.  Finally, the European Union is peeved with its vaccine suppliers as the demand far outpaces the production.  Are you dummies using the Russian Sputnik vaccine?  Serves you right, dimwits.
  86. 2021 Friday I: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– President Donald J. Trump said today that during the Antifa/Black Lives Matter FALSE FLAG OPERATION launched against Capitol Hill on January 06, 2021, lawmakers were in ‘ZERO DANGER.’  We concur, it was set up from the start.   Speaking of President Trump, he will also remain neutral in the Alabama race for the U.S. Senate seat, and, according to Jason Miller, President Trump may visit the southern border soon.  Next, Congressman Byron Donalds, R-FL 19th congressional district, says that ‘Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi thinks she can remove anyone from office.’  Elsewhere, New York’s junior Senator Kirsten “Whitey” Gillibrand defends her call for Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo to resign as being her personal opinion.  (The Lov Gov must have called her up and threatened her).  Meanwhile, Speaker “Mumbles” Pelosi has authorized several House committees to conduct intensive investigations into rooting out the scurrilous scumbags behind the Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021, riots the Democrats set in motion.  She is angry NO Republicans will join her in yet another witch hunt.
  87. 2021 Friday J: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS IV– U.S. Cybercommand says that recent hacks by foreign actors are a ‘clarion call’ to arms.  You go.  Meanwhile, Parler says it informed the FBI of numerous threats made on its site prior to the Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021.  Next, Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, is calling for an end to the lockdown on the cruise ship industry.  Cruise ships must get back to work.  NOW.  Next, “Lonesome Dove” (and other books) author Larry McMurtry is dead at the age of 84.  God bless you, Larry!  Moving on, the Michigan GOP plans to bypass a weakened Governor Gretchen “Bride of Frankenstein” Whitmer, Democratic-Socialist, and fix the voting laws in their state.  Finally, Congressman James Comer, R-KY 1st congressional district, says ‘Congress holding BIG TECH accountable is going to be a challenge.’

  89. 2021 Friday L: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 222,259 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States– feeble old Joe, in another three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  
  90. : COVID-19 STATISTICS 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: 3,648,021 confirmed cases (same as yesterday’s count), 57,909 confirmed deaths (same as yesterday’s), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,950 confirmed cases, 454 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 359,290 confirmed cases, 5,249 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., the third highest state after California- Florida: currently, they have 2,016,505 confirmed cases, 32,819 confirmed deaths, but sadly, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 829,689 confirmed cases, 6,122 confirmed deaths, and 808,869 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).   Let’s look at one other country- Hungary, former Axis ally: 586,123 cases of the virus, 18,703 confirmed deaths and 378,176 confirmed recoveries.[xvi]  
  91. 2021 Friday N: STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,072.88, UP 453.40 points (+1.39%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,138.73, UP 161.04 points (+1.24%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,974.54, UP 65.02 points (+1.66%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $60.72 per barrel, -0.25 (-0.21%).  The price of GOLD is $1,731.60 per troy oz., -0.70 (-0.04%) while the price of SILVER is $25.11 per troy ounce, 0.00 (-0.02%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,191.10 per troy oz, +13.20 (+1.12%) while the price of COPPER is $4.08 per pound, +0.01 (+0.28%).[xvii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,677.50 per troy oz, +52.00 (+1.98%).[xviii] The price of RHODIUM is $28,200.00 per troy oz., -900.00 (-3.09%).[xix]    Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.54 Chinese yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.58.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.   In Belize dollars, one greenback equals 2.00.[xx]  
  92. 2021 Friday O: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE THREE 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 $3.889 per gallon, $3.635 in Hawaii, and $3.323 in Washington state.[xxi]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,097,328,683,045 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxii]  Cloward and Piven running amok.
  93. 2021 Friday P: NASA/SCIENCE NEWS– NASA reports that the humongous asteroid named Apophis originally thought to maybe impact the Earth sometime in 2068 now won’t come near enough to the Earth to wreak havoc on the planet for at least another century.  This bad boy from the cosmos is the size of the Empire State Building and is slated to pass within 20,000 miles of the Earth on Friday, April 13, 2029.  Astronomers point out that the moon is 238,000 miles away from our planet so this substantial chunk of rock is going to pass by us at an extremely close distance which astronomers are all excited about as it will provide them ample opportunity to get some good photos of it.  Let’s hope another chunk of space debris doesn’t slam into it, deflect it, and send it crashing down on our planet (unless it decides to hit communist China, Russia, or Iran first before creating a massive extinction event the likes of which ended the reign of the dinosaurs).   Italian astronomer Claudio Maccone says the best protection against space-based threats such as asteroids is space-based missiles with which to blow them up when they are a good distance from the planet rather than immediately threatening it.
  94. 2021 Friday Q: LATE NEWS I– Beloved children’s author Beverly Cleary died at the age of 104 today.  Meanwhile, rabid, foaming at the mouth liberals are suing Georgia’s elections officials over the new voting laws someone in the White House calls the ‘new Jim Crow of the 21st century.’  Yikes.  That hurts.  Elsewhere, the FREE nation of Taiwan, aka the Republic of China or Nationalist China, reported today that 20 Chi-Com warplanes penetrated its airspace today which led to rapid scrambling of attack planes and targeted missiles which drove the communist invaders back out to sea.  Light ‘em up, Taiwan, light those SOBs up!   Speaking of the Chi-Coms, them and the Russians are drawing closer together in an effort to intimidate the United States.  What else is new?   Former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger warns that the constant ‘U.S.-China contest risks catastrophic conflict.’ 
  95. 2021 Friday R: LOTTERY NEWS– Stay tuned for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1645 with a jackpot of $137 million on the line.  Get your tickets purchased by 7:45 P.M. tonight.  Here are the results: 04, 25, 37, 46, 67, and Mega 15.  Out of 69,400 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $18,502.
  96. 2022 Saturday: Thank God, it’s Saturday.  We hope things remain peaceful…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Robbie Robertson’s next solo album came out on March 10, 1998, and is somewhat unique among his growing discography of music.  The famed guitarist of the Band jumped into a celebrated effort in which, he tried to bring the music of the First Peoples of Canada, aka aboriginals, to a wider audience, sort of what Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones did when he presented his ground-breaking effort, “Pipes of Pan at Joujouka,” an album that came out in 1971.  In that effort, Jones presented the whirling music of North African flute players and drummers whereas here, Robertson brings together large numbers of musicians to play his visionary intermingling of native rhythms with modern musical forms.  We hope you will seek this one out, consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure, and then sharing it with others.  We think they will be as appreciative of it as will you.  Enjoy.

[i] We look forward to doing our favorite classical composers one day.  Hopefully within the next 30 years.

[ii] See “The Soviet Juggernaut” by Earl F. Ziemke and the Editors of Time-Life Books (1980).

[iii] We look forward to promoting the music of Aerosmith one day.  We hope within the next 8-10 years.  Remain vigilant.

[iv] We look forward to doing the Clash but expect to do Supertramp first, then Pink Floyd, then Electric Light Orchestra/the Move, then Yes, and then perhaps the Clash.  They are among the amazing British rock bands of the 1970s and deserve to be acknowledged as such.

[v] Not sure when we will begin promoting the music of Boston but when we do, we will alert the readership.  Stay tuned for further developments.

[vi] Our main reference for the epic battle at Dien Bien Phu is “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, 2004, Da Capo Press.  Please seek this amazing historical work out for a concise look at the battle that ended French control of French Indochina and the birth of Vietnam.

[vii] We hope to offer the music of Dire Straits sometime in 2021-2022.  Please stay tuned.

[viii] Not sure when we will get around to doing the music of Three Dog Night but if we ever return to promoting the music of famed rock bands from the 1960s and the 1970s, we sure as heck will include this stellar band, one that is still performing to this day.  We saw them in 2019 and all we can say is “Wow.”

[ix] We promoted the music of Genesis and its members beginning on Tuesday, 02-April-2019 through Sunday, 15-September-2019.  This included not only the parent group but also Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett, Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford, Mike + the Mechanics, and Phil Collins.  Please, look for them.

[x] We shared the music of the Stones beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members’ solo projects.  We sure as heck hope you check out the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Keith Richard, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, and Mick Taylor.  Ronnie Wood you can find during the presentation of the Faces.

[xi] The Reverend Al never misses out on an opportunity to label people RACISTS.

[xii] She should KNOW about Jim Crow.  Democrats were- and still are, for that matter- the party of Jim Crow as well as the party of separate but equal, the KKK, slavery, race hatred, segregation, red-lining, white flight, burning crosses, police dogs, fire hoses, beatings, plantation prisons, and the Civil War.  Dems love braying about “JIM CROW, JIM CROW” as it is the new watchword of the day, everything anyone opposing them does is taking us back to “Jim Crow.”  Lizzie- STFU you lying, phony, hypocritical, crazy f**king bitch!  Enough is enough!

[xiii] This moronic little chub probably thinks, “Boy, I sure showed them!”  We’re sure she believes Governor Kemp is also a racist bigot.  Enough already.

[xiv] Why?  Can’t Joe just undo everything with yet another executive order and can’t the Democrats coerce RINO Governor Brian Kemp into signing another consent decree in 2022 that will permit overweight Stacey Abrams to steal the elections as she did in 2020?  What the hell is the big deal?

[xv] This is why we suggest seeding the Rio Grande with alligator pups from Florida, Mississippi, and Alabama as well as laying in minefields, antipersonnel, antivehicle, and antiboat impediments, putting down spikes on our side of the river IN the river at the border line, putting in military emplacements, troops, razor wire augmenting the wall, and completing the wall.  Hell, put in foo gas pits and whatever else we need to stop the invasion.  BUILD THE WALL AND DEPORT THEM ALL!

Back in the day, I was working at a hotel in Bakersfield, California, down on Union Avenue where I met Stinkbug. It was still nice at the time, and the area was still the original "restaurant row" of the city. Now, I am over 70 years old and work over in Santa Barbara, CA, as a food and beverage director for a fine-dining country club. The pictures you see here of me are facsimiles created by up-and-coming Bakersfield, California, street artist, the famed Simone. Good work, dude, good work. Chef James “Jimmy” Hall writes from Santa Barbara, CA. Chef Jimmy Hall is a former member of the Peace and Freedom Party and now votes as an Independent.
