  67. 2018 Sunday: In the socialist hellhole of Venezuela, President Nicolas Maduro wins re-election in a questionable election marked by boycotts, protests, and massive accusations of vote-rigging.  The guy must be a Democrat.
  68. 2019 Monday: Google supposedly ends its support for communist China’s Huawei Android phone system as tensions between the United States and the counterfeit socialist nation deteriorate.
  69. 2020 Wednesday: Beijing is sniveling and whining that everyone is calling the Chinese Virus “the Chinese Virus,” but it is the Chinese Virus as it came to us from the hinterlands of Wuhan, China, and it continues killing people around the planet as we speak and allowing totalitarian leaders to increase their grip on their populations.  Here are the stats for the globe today: 4,968,689 number of confirmed cases, 326,515 number of confirmed deaths, and 1,885,535 number of confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have (thanks to communist China) 1,581,903 confirmed cases, 93,806 confirmed deaths, and 301,341 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which, the AICPENDBLOG.COM- the old American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day, formerly at Google Blogger (scumbags), California, Hawaii, and Washington state, here are the stats, the Golden State first: 81,795 confirmed cases, 3,334 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are Hawaii’s stats: 643 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 578 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are Washington state’s stats: 18,923 confirmed cases, 1,037 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, liberal Blue State governors continue freeing criminals from prisons and jails, supposedly out of fear of COVID-19, but in truth, seeking to punish their enemies.  Is a second Civil War coming?  It sure looks that way, thanks to communist China.

  71. 2021 Thursday A: NOTE: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 286,128 Chi-Vi deaths in the United States- President Biden, by the end of the year, 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 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 173,481 deaths.   In other Chi-Vi-related news, lawmakers are asking WHY House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, possibly more senile than the 46th president is, won’t update the MASK DICTATE when the Centers for Disease Control says, ‘MOST Americans no longer have to wear masks (not that we ever truly did).’  The amazing thing is that when the Democrats believe the cameras are turned off, the masks come off.  What a load of festering fecal matter.

  75. 2021 Thursday 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 $4.153 per gallon, $2.884 in Florida, $3.889 in Hawaii, and $3.553 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- West Virginia: $2.993.  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 next lowest gasoline price in the world- Colombia: $2.313 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,309,522,043,913 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  76. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Today is Day 59 for Border Czar “Kooky Kamala” Harris NOT to visit the southern border.  Meanwhile, rumors of maltreatment and mistreatment of illegal aliens in holding pens along the southern border continue to grow and the federal government has closed two facilities with dire records of mistreatment of the incarcerated illegals.  Elsewhere, video is beginning to leak out of illegal alien dumps at various airports around the country in the dead of night.  Chef Lilah who has a relative working at the airport in Honolulu says that illegal alien brats are arriving at least once a week in flights who are then being distributed around the Hawaiian Islands.  This simply must stop. 
  77. 2021 Thursday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– Hamas and Hezbollah are crying uncle.  A ceasefire negotiated by the Joe Biden regime and Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah el-Sissi has brought a halt to the ongoing clash of Good (Israel) and Evil (Hamas and Hezbollah).  The Israelis have eliminated most of the tunnels that Palestinian leadership devotes massive amounts of donated money to construct rather than giving their people better lives.  The Israels also have taken out numerous Hamas military sites and as many Hamas scumbags as possible.  God bless you!   Meanwhile, a Chinese Communist Party-linked professor says that ‘COVID-19 was indeed a Chi-Com biological weapons attack on the United States.’  Hell, we have been saying that since it began gaining steam in early 2020!  Senior Researcher Chen Ping of China Institute of Fudan University said that ‘(communist) China defeated the U.S. in a biological war in 2020.’  What more flipping evidence does the world need to understand that the primary target was President Donald J. Trump, and the primary beneficiary was “Pro-China Joe” Biden?  OPEN YOUR EYES.
  78. 2021 Thursday H: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– Dr. Kelli Ward, chair of the Arizona GOP, says that it would appear that more and more evidence demonstrates that the 2020 Elections in the Copper State most likely were corrupt and fraudulent in Maricopa County and that it is possible that Joe Biden could be proven to be the counterfeit that he is.  We hope to see a great outcome which is why the Arizona Democratic Party is doing everything it can to defy the ongoing audit as is the despicable Dominion Voting Systems out of Canada.  We believe the Canadian government must order them to comply with all requests from the ongoing Grand Canyon State audit.   (Note- George Soros-funded Sheriff Paul Penzone, DS, is fighting the auditors by putting as much blockage in their way.  When the hell is this country going to do something to Mr. Soros?)  Finally, the D.A. in Fayette City, Pennsylvania, has launched a probe into WHY Dominion Voting Systems machines flipped ONLY GOP ballots over to Democrats in the last election.  Bit by bit, more information continues coming out that we believe is going to show that the Democrats stole 2020.  Hence, why is there this determination to continue strengthening Fort Pelosi in Washington, D.C.?  They know they got away with a stolen election.
  79. 2021 Thursday I: Joe Biden Regime News I– the Biden regime directs U.S. agencies to assess and to then mitigate the effects of ‘climate change.’  Uh, okay, what a waste of time.   Next, all of the Biden regime’s misfires has led to problems in the U.S.-Israeli relationship.  Speaking of Israel, Joe’s pal, Senator Bernie Sanders, DS-VT, is offering legislation to BLOCK the $735 million sale of weapons to the Israelis.  (Note- what more evidence does one require to know that Bernie is a self-hating Jew?)  Also related to Israel, GOP lawmakers are calling on Mr. Biden to strengthen U.S. ties with Israel.  In other regime news, the Bidenistas say the Chi-Coms won’t release data from their now infamous Wuhan Biological Warfare Lab.
  80. 2021 Thursday J: Political News I– The University of North Carolina has denied 1619 Project founder, Nikole “Bozo the Clown” Hannah-Jones tenure because this woman is- in the language of the young and dumb- cray-cray.  Good for them.  Educated, fair-minded people must begin pushing back on these racist nuts before they destroy our country.  Boot this bi**h into the nearest dumpster.  Speaking of educated, non-racist folks, a new study finds that 35-percent or more conservative thinkers are better educated and better informed on both current events and past events.  Liberal news watchers are much-less educated and aware of the truth of anything.  Speaking of liberal bias, Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-TX 2nd congressional district, calls out the mainstream news media- what Dave Rubin labels ‘corporate news media’- over its coverage of events.
  81. 2021 Thursday K: Political News II– While the Democrats continue pressing ahead with socialism, House GOP leaders held a Cuban independence day event.  The people of Cuba deserve their freedom while the American people do not deserve being forced into communism via the backdoor of socialism. Meanwhile, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district, lambasted the Democrats’ establishment of the ‘January 06, 2021, Commission’ as being little more than ‘impeachment 3.0.  Amen.  In fact, ZERO people have been charged with insurrection.  NONE.  The National Republican Congressional Committee raised $11.2 million in the month of April.   Elsewhere, people are asking questions as to WHY Governor “Gravel Gertie” Gretchen Whitmer just shut down the state’s Line 5 that provides propane for much of Michigan for home heating?  WTF is occurring here.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

“Pet Sounds” came out on May 16, 1966 and was the commercial pinnacle of the Beach Boys.  No longer touring with his brothers, cousin, and friends, Brian was in the studio with session musicians and lyricists and created perhaps one of the all-time greatest albums in the annals of modern, popular music.  From start to finish, the album was a tapestry of musical influences, stories, feelings, and emotions all interwoven with one another.  When the Beatles heard this album, it is reported that they were awed at what they had to compete.  Of course, they would be working on “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.”  The tunes include nothing but memorable hits such as “Wouldn’t It be Nice,” “You Still Believe in Me,” “Don’t Talk (Put Your Head on my Shoulder),” “Sloop John B,” “God Only Knows,” and “Caroline, No.”  We hope you will seek this album out and make it a part of your daily musical rotation because it will indeed grow upon- not only your ears- but your heart, mind and soul.  Check it out now- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.
