  39. 1960 Sunday: Founder of the Nation of Islam, Elijah Muhammad, calls for a ‘black state.’[iii].   (Note- wasn’t the nation of Liberia created to be the first ‘black state?’).  The sad thing is, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. wanted the American people to be integrated, intermixed, and one harmonious people.  That was his dream so anything contrary to that dream is nothing more than bullshit and what’s even worse, six decades later America-haters would be trying to tear it all asunder.

  63. 2017 Monday: After less than two weeks, foul-mouth Anthony Scaramucci, aka the Mooch- is forced out of his position as communications director for Donald Trump’s White House.  The next to get the boot is the wily 5th U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly.  This loser first became secretary on January 20, 2017 and served under President Donald J. Trump from then until today.  His replacement, the 5.5th Acting U.S. Secretary of the DHS Elaine Duke assumed office.  She would serve until December 06, 2017.
  64. 2018 Tuesday: The 104th U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, nominated by President Ronald Reagan to replace 99th U.S. Supreme Court Justice Lewis F. Powell Jr., finished his final day on the court and went into retirement.  He took his seat on the nation’s high court on February 18-1988 and left little more than 30 years later.  Long beloved by liberal Americans as the crucial swing vote on numerous cases, they shed tears as he left the court, fearing it would become much more conservative.  Little did they know they would not have to worry about that. [vi] Meanwhile, Facebook announces a major moment of virtue-signaling as it announces it ‘removed Russian-linked accounts that are attempting to interfere in the November 2018 Elections.’[vii] 
  65. 2019 Wednesday: U.S. officials announce a major coup with the news of an airstrike in Pakistan that killed Osama bin Laden’s son, Hamza bin Laden, and a potential successor.  Good, keep on killing these worthless jihadist scumbags.  Meanwhile, after more than 700,000 people sing a petition demanding the Russian government do something about the out-of-control wildfires destroying Siberia (7.4 million acres burned), Vladimir Putin orders Russian troops to aid the locals in fighting the conflagration devouring his country.  ‘Bout time you did something besides interfering in U.S. elections there, Vlad.  
  66. 2020 Friday: Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom continues causing problems for the citizens of California as on Friday, he pardoned five people who had already served time and commuted the sentences of another 21 state prison inmates including more than a dozen convicted of murder some of whose victims included young children and pregnant women.  He did this, or so he says, because of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  What a worthless POS.    One of these scumbags released was a 64-year-old murderer Richard Flowers who, at age 38, murdered an elderly Tulare, California, woman in her home and stole her jewelry.  He received a sentence of life without parole and when a potential parole hearing came up under the previous Governor Jerry Brown, Brown would not free him.

Trump’s approval rate for job performance at 50-percent.  Meanwhile, U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, age 87, left the hospital today following a revisal of a bile duct stint.  God bless you, madam, please get well soon.  Finally, speculation alights on Sen. Kamala Harris, D-CA, as the potential VP pick of Joe Biden.  In order for Ms. Harris to get her senatorial gig, she had an affair with former Assembly Speaker Willie Brown so if she gets the VP nod, with whom did she trade (allegedly) trade favors to get the number two spot on the ballot?
  71. 2021 Saturday: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 198,497,926 confirmed cases, +525,446, 4,232,079 confirmed deaths, +8,931 and 179,252,925 confirmed recoveries, +368,306.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 35,743,144 confirmed cases, UP 65,394 from yesterday’s reporting, 629,310 confirmed deaths, UP 380, [ix] and 29,666,084 confirmed recoveries, UP 16,303.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 310,868 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, 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 93,210 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

  76. 2021 Saturday 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 and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.367 per gallon, $2.972 in Florida, $4.092 in Hawaii, and $3.850 in Washington state. [xvii]    Let’s look at one other location- Kentucky: $2.919.  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- Curacao: $4.693 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,587,535,043,912 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xix]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Philippines, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is United Arab Emirates with $32 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  77.  2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 130 for the gibbering jackal of a ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka Willie Brown’s ‘Booty Call Mattress,’ aka the squealing swamp hog of the Everglades, aka the yowling midnight lemur to be in charge of the southern border and to have done little to nothing about it.  It’s also her 36th day since her one and only visit to the border and again to have done nothing about it.  Okay, One American News always presents the costs of illegal immigration for the American People.  First, here is the cost for just this day of caring for the illegals pouring across the southern border: $635,102,752.  Absolutely shocking.  Horrible we know.  Next, here is the cost for this year: $231,328,045,120.  Imagine all this money going to care for ILLEGAL ALIENS!  Next, here are the numbers estimated to have crossed into the United States just this year: 2,376,624.  Finally, here are the CONSERVATIVE estimates as to how many illegal aliens are roaming the land: 36,376,662.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  We tend to disagree with the final number as we said as far back as 2009 that the numbers then were between 35-50 million whereas now, we believe the number to be closer to 75-100 million which means we have an army of storm troopers the Democrats can deploy against the rest of us (which is why ammunition is flying off the shelves right now).
  78. 2021 Saturday G: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– Rep. Andy Biggs, R-AZ 5th congressional district, has written a letter to House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, urging her NOT to include mass amnesty for tens of millions of illegal aliens lurking within the country.  She won’t listen.  
  79. 2021 Saturday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The Biden regime is threatening a new round of lockdowns and restrictions if more Americans don’t rush out and get vaccinated against the Chi-Vi.   Last week, there was mention of the NEW Lambda variant out of Peru being worse than the Delta variant and then within a day, all talk of the Lambda variant (SARS-CoV-2) vanished out of the window, and it was back to pounding the Delta drums.   Amazing how the libs continue guiding all talk on the Chi-Vi and how everyone must rush out and get vaccinated.  Funny that there are more infections among VACCINATED Americans than among unvaccinated.  Something ain’t right here, folks.   Add to that the fact that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci says that mRNA vaccines for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu could be approved for widespread use by next month.  Pushing, pushing, pushing!
  80. 2021 Saturday I: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3582 what with a $12 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner.  Here are the numbers: 16, 18, 30, 32, 38, and Mega 05.  Out of 97,148 winning tickets, the highest winners were 12 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $1,413 apiece.   Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #868 with a jackpot of $199 million up for grabs: 01, 21, 22, 34, 47, and Powerball 04.  Out of 83,515 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $44,999.
  81. 2022 Sunday: IF things do not change over the next two election cycles, we may need to become friendly with the Chi-Coms.  I remember when the country was committed to being the best whereas now, we are ripping ourselves apart, thanks in large part to Chi-Com, Russian, Iranian, and other of our enemies’ machinations.  Race is the Achilles heel of the United States and if our enemies continue noodling away at the seams, at some point, the nation is going to explode.  Add to that the fact that we cannot trust our elected leaders who all seem to be in the pay of Beijing and one can see the old maxim is true: the capitalists will sell the communists the rope with which the communists hang the capitalists.  Personally, I think it’s too late and my family and I are considering relocating to Ireland as a safe haven from the looming storm.  What is the point in remaining in country that is ripping itself to shreds?  Let me know what you all think.  Thanks- Chef Elmer K.

This artwork is #0908 a 20” x 24” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Central Coast.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclees, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

After the Beach Boys went through starts and fits back in the 1960s over Brian Wilson’s “Smile” project, an abbreviated form “Smiley Smile” hit record store shelves on September 16, 1967 (see Monday, May 23, 2022) and since it was nowhere near the project envisioned by composer Brian Wilson, it was considered a flop.  Well, years later, Brian Wilson said, “Screw it,” and relaunched the entire project with a series of live performances and a live album culled from the performance.  “Brian Wilson Presents Smile” came out on September 28, 2004, and is a mind-blowing, joyous project to behold.  NO ONE in his, her, or its right mind questions the fact that Brian Wilson is not an innovative, musical genius, certainly not anyone with sufficient gray matter, that’s for sure.  We hope you will seek this album out and that you will add it to your growing collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-recommended music- we think you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

Trump’s vetoes on bills blocking arms sales to Saudi Arabia.  Politicians are angry over the murder of the journalist Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Turkey.
  59. 2020 Thursday: President Donald J. Trump sets the world ablaze when he questions the efficacy of mail-in ballots and proffers the suggestion that perhaps the November elections be postponed until this crazy system can be worked out. Folks, mail-in ballots are fraud waiting to occur. In June, the state of New York used mail-in ballots in their primary election and lo and behold, nearly seven weeks later, they are still trying to find out who won the various elections.  Meanwhile, former President Barack Hussein Obama- in his eulogy for deceased Rep. John Lewis, D-GA, lambastes President Trump for trying to steal the election, using voter intimidation and manipulation and God knows what other bull crap the former president could yank out of his mind and the attendees at the funeral, none of whom were sitting six-feet apart, leapt to their feet and applauded insanely for what seemed like hours.   Will Democrats NEVER continue trying to steal elections?  Enough is flipping enough, already, folks.  Finally, Herman Cain, former CEO of Godfather Pizza and GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain dies at age 74 from the Bat Virus sent around the world by the Chi-Coms.  Speaking of the Bat Flu:

[x]        
  68. 2021 Friday E: 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 and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.356 per gallon, $2.976 in Florida, $4.090 in Hawaii, and $3.843 in Washington state. [xi] Let’s look at one other location- Kansas: $2.940.  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- Burundi: $4.591 per U.S. Gallon.[xii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,583,734,946,871 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xiii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Poland, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Philippines with $43 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  69. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Folks, the days continue passing us by and lo and behold, today is Day No. 129 for the purported ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 35 since her one and only visit to the region. Speaking of the regime for which the border czar labors, the Department of Justice is suing Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, for his order to HALT all further ground transportation of illegal aliens across the Lone Star State. Of course, the DOJ cannot have a governor fighting back but legal eagles say the Lone Star State’s case is going to be hard to topple.   
  70. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– One America News compiles the HONEST-TO-GOD numbers of the costs and numbers surrounding our illegal alien invasion and today is NO different. First, here is the cost for just this flipping day: $585,147,264.  Imagine all the good that money could do for the American people and lo and behold, it’s going to care for noncitizens who do not deserve to be here and who must be rounded up, imprisoned in the absolute worst conditions, deprogrammed to want to come here a la “A Clockwork Orange,” and then deported via any means available.  How about we ship them to communist China?  Second, here is the cost this year of caring for the invaders: $230,722,174,976.    So much money going down the crapper, folks; we must round up all of them- including the DREAMERS and any other foals calved here and ship them back NOW.  Third, here is the number of estimated illegals who have swamped the U.S. in 2021 alone: 2,364,717.  Finally, here is the fourth and final statistic, the number of illegal aliens estimated to be running amok across the United States: 36,364,710.  Remember, this is a CONSERVATIVE NUMBER.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  We tend to disagree with the final number as we said as far back as 2009 that the numbers then were between 35-50 million whereas now, we believe the number to be closer to 75-100 million which means we have an invasion army already living in our midst.  Time to exercise the 2nd Amendment…(to protect ourselves).
  71. 2021 Friday H: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, and Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-TX 28th congressional district, have joined forces to demand the Biden regime awaken to the dangers of unchecked mass immigration into the United States from nearly 160 nations around the globe. Entire neighborhoods and towns are being overrun with illegal aliens and people are beginning to fight back and to end this unconstitutional mess.
  72. 2021 Friday I: Foreign News / Overseas News I– As ‘Gropin’ Joe’ Biden continues playing pocket pool in the White House basement, national security experts are growing concerned over the Chi-Coms ramped up silo-building. Silos are where intercontinental ballistic missiles- ICBMs- reside and it’s clear the Chi-Coms are constructing them like flies have maggots. We believe it may be time to launch a pre-emptive strike on the Chi-Coms before they go to war against the Free World.
  73. 2021 Friday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Yesterday, Il Duce Joe Biden said that ALL federal employees and contractors will be required to get vaccinated for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu or face never-ending mask-wearing, 2-3, perhaps even 4 tests a week (could be anal ones like the Chi-Coms favor for all international travelers) as well as being prohibited from traveling for job-related matters. Thus, the American Fuhrer has spoken. Yet, we learn that in places such as Massachusetts where a major outbreak of the Chi-Com Yellow Fever is underway, there seems to be a pandemic of the vaccinated, NOT the vaccinated as the liberal goobers claim.  Hence why NONE of us are going to get vaccinated for this bogus virus crisis (we have urgent care centers willing to dish out hydroxychloroquine tablets and vitamin D injections).   Yesterday, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, put forth a bill which will hold the Centers for Disease Control accountable for all the lies and propaganda they continue spewing on the Chi-Vi.
  74. 2021 Friday K: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Broadway is mandating that all behind-the-scenes personnel as well as performers AND all attendees wear masks as well as present proof of vaccination. Uh, okay. Speaking of mass mask stupidity, Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-NY 22nd congressional district, says ‘it’s amazing: right across the hall in the U.S. Senate, NO MASKS.’  It’s as if by magic.  In other COVID-19 news, the Xi Jinping Bat Flu has snared approximately 2 million Americans in a passport backlog.  Next, the House GOP is demanding that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci and other top COVID-19 scientists testify on the Hill.   Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says that ‘Pelosi’s mask mandates are a massive overreach of her powers.’
  75. 2021 Friday L: Joe Biden News I– While Joe Biden was at some function, people noticed he had a yellow booger hanging off his chin, something of which, he was unaware. One of his aides, however, rushed to his side, handed him a note saying, ‘something’s on your chin.’ He wiped the snot off and according to some either stuck it in his mouth as though he were still in kindergarten (in his mind, he seemingly still is) or wiped it on the tabletop.  Either way, he remains our national disgrace and humiliation.  In other Joe Biden news, he took a BIG ONE on the chin when House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi was unable to prevent the evictions moratorium collapse as of tomorrow morning.  It looks like the mentally decrepit, nonagenarian speaker is folding like a deck of cards. 
  76. 2021 Friday M: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Department of Justice says that the Internal Revenue Service MUST hand President Donald J. Trump’s tax records over to the angry Democrat goons in the U.S. House of Representatives.
  77. 2021 Friday N: Political News I– Lee Zeldin, R-NY 1st congressional district, says that the ‘nursing home probe into deaths in New York’ caused by the indifference or worse, by design of Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov ‘should continue.’ Elsewhere, new polling out of Wyoming shows that Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY At-Large congressional district, is in deep, deep trouble with the voters. She deserves it.  Next, we continue to learn about the duplicitous activities of the Catholic Charities spreading illegal aliens across the United States regardless as to whether they have the Chi-Vi or other diseases or not.  This is not good and it causing many of our Catholic members to lapse in their church support.   Finally, the Wisconsin Republicans are working at expanding the state’s 2020 Election probe.  Good for them.
  78. 2021 Friday O: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1681 what with a $166 million jackpot on the line: 19, 26, 31, 52, 68, and Mega 10. Out of 77,695 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were 37 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $568 apiece.2022 Saturday: Hubbub continues from Tuesday’s extremely peculiar and wholly unnatural ‘speech’ by slobbering Joe Biden, you know, the one where he mumbled and stumbled through his verbal assault on President Donald J. Trump with his unblinking eyes wide open.  It’s as if he has a ‘Dr. Morrell’ in his employ, the doctor who ‘treated’ Adolf Hitler throughout the war years.  Dr. Morrell used to inject the Fuhrer with all manner of things such as vitamins, methamphetamine, even bull semen, to make his Fuhrer less crazy and more in control, none of which worked.  The Joe Biden ‘speech’ made me think of one of those ‘G.I. Joe’ movies where America’s enemies replaced the president with a look-alike clone.  It also makes me think of those lifelike dolls the Japanese use as sexual partners, whatever drooling Joe is doing, I doubt it’s truly him.  We have never been in a situation such as this.  Let me know what you think- Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0907 a 20” x 24” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Cave in the Rocks.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclees, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next studio album from Beach Boys genius, Brian Wilson- “Gettin’ In Over My Head”- came out on June 22, 2004.  Like Pete Townsend and his “Lighthouse” project that never made it to completion, Brian Wilson was working on two different projects during the 1990s, both of which never made it to fruition.  The music was there and he went back and reworked it and brought it to the public in all its radiant glory.  Brian Wilson’s band of musicians joined him as did four big guests, Elton John, Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney, and Carl Wilson as well as other studio hotshots brought in to help him finish the project.  Fans raved over the album as do we which is why we encourage everyone to seek this one out wherever it is they shop for the absolute best in music- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

210. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, JULY 29, 2022

1945 Sunday: After delivering the atomic bomb to U.S. Air Forces in the Pacific, the heavy cruiser USS Indianapolis is torpedoed by a Japanese submarine and sunk somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. It would be days before the U.S. Navy even though they were missing and over the course of their time in the water, struggling sailors would be attacked by ravenous sharks around the clock. What a nightmare.

Ford becomes the first U.S. President to visit the Nazi death camp of Auschwitz located in Poland.  Meanwhile, the Organization of American States (OAS) votes to lift sanctions against Cuba.  The U.S. government welcomed the action and announced its intention to open serious discussions with the communist nation on normalization of relations between the two nations.

  45. 1998 Wednesday: The United Auto Workers union ended a 54-day strike against General Motors.  The result of the strike is that GM lost $2.8 billion in revenue.
  46. 2004 Thursday: Incredibly fatuous Senator John F. Kerry, D-Massachusetts, accepted the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination at the party’s Boston convention with a military salute and the declaration, “I’m John Kerry and I’m reporting for duty.”  It is good to note that he skated through a short-lived military career in the Brown Water Navy during the Vietnam War and then came home and became the biggest anti-war protester going so far as to throw the medals of someone else over the fence surrounding the White House.
  47. 2005 Friday: Astronomers announced the discovery of a planetary body larger than Pluto in orbit around the sun; the dwarf planet initially nicknamed Xena received the official designation Eris.

  52. 2014 Tuesday: In Sierra Leone during the Ebola virus crisis, Dr. Sheik Umar Khan succumbs to the disease himself, the principal physician battling against it.  Meanwhile, in Palestinian-controlled Gaza Strip, the authorities claim that 100 of their citizens were killed in Israeli airstrikes.  IF Palestinians were killed, it’s because they were acting the fool- like usual.  In the wake of this, France announces it will send 8-million euros in aid to the Gaza.  Good for them, virtue-signaling is always good.
  53. 2015 Wednesday: In the Indian Ocean off the coast of France’s Reunion Island, searchers find debris from a Boeing 777, which officials believe to be from the missing Malaysia Air Lines Flight 370.  The plane disappeared over a year ago.
  54. 2016 Friday: In Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, at the Democratic National Convention, Hillary Rodham Clinton becomes the first woman to accept the presidential nomination of a major political party.  Needless to say, her fellow Democrats fall into a celebratory swoon and sex workers around the city see the numbers of their patrons spike.  Virginia Senator Tim Kaine becomes her running mate.  What a pair of losers.
  55. 2017 Saturday: U.S. and South Korean forces conducted joint live-fire exercises in response to North Korea’s second launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile; experts said the North Korean launch showed that a substantial portion of the United States was now within the range of Kim Jong Un’s arsenal of missiles. 
  56. 2018 Sunday: Students in Dhaka, Bangladesh, launch protests around the nation demanding safer roadways.  In a country as poor as this one, they are incapable of doing the necessary infrastructure work to make their nation safe.
  57. 2019 Monday: In the state of Para in Brazil, a gang war between two rival gangs explodes at the Altamira Prison what with 58 slain, including 16 beheaded among that horrifying number.  Eventually, prison guards retake the prison but the violence is absolutely horrendous.
  58. 2020 Wednesday: In the Lone Star State, President Donald J. Trump signed some executive orders allowing for the building of pipelines and accompanying infrastructure.  Meanwhile, the House Judiciary Committee grilled the CEOs of Google (a POS), Facebook, Apple, and Amazon.com over unfair practices when it comes to promoting all-things liberal and trashing all-things conservative.  We can attest to Google destroying our two blogs all because Sundar Pichai is little more than a piece of frothy scum floating atop an exposed septic tank.  Get them, Republicans, get this scum…  Finally, speculation abounds as people continue pondering whether “Pro-China Joe” Biden will choose Sen. Kamala Harris (please, take her, get her the hell out of California), former National Security Advisor Susan Rice, or California Rep. Karen Bass.  We shall see.  Our money’s on Elizabeth Warren, a ‘true woman of color’ (LOL!).

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 310,026 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, 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 94,052 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[x]    
  65. 2021 Thursday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 869,063 confirmed cases, 6,466 confirmed deaths, and 847,076 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Equatorial Guinea, 163rd country on the list: 8,880 cases of the virus, 123 confirmed deaths and 8,637 confirmed recoveries. [xi]     
  66. 2021 Thursday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,084.53, UP 153.60 points (+0.44%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,778.26, UP 15.68 points (+0.11%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,419.15, UP 18.51 points (+0.42%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $73.21 per barrel, -0.44 (-0.60%).  The price of GOLD is $1,827.50 per troy oz., -3.70 (-0.20%) while the price of SILVER is $25.63 per troy ounce, -0.16 (-0.61%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,052.10 per troy oz, -15.70 (-1.42%) while the price of COPPER is $4.50 per pound, -0.02 (-0.53%).

[xv]       
  67. 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 and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.346 per gallon, $2.979 in Florida, $4.089 in Hawaii, and $3.842 in Washington state. [xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Indiana: $3.114.  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- Philippines: $4.590 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,579,970,824,046 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Israel, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Poland with $51 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  68. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 128 for the gibbering jackal of a ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka Willie Brown’s Mattress, aka the screeching jabberwocky of the rain forest, aka the howling midnight marsupial to be in charge of the southern border and to have done little to nothing about it.  It’s also her 34th day since her one and only visit to the border and to have done nothing about it but wait- she released an 18-page report today.  The report does nothing about re-igniting the border wall construction, it does nothing to stop the tidal wave of illegal aliens into the country, nor does it do anything about rounding up this human fecal matter and deporting it out of the country.  No, it will TRY to address the same issues in the Northern Triangle that every administration since the late 1980s tried to address and ONLY- we repeat- ONLY President Donald J. Trump fixed.   Get Trump back into the White House.  NOW.
  69. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Here are the numbers for the illegal alien invasion as of today as presented by One America News, an extremely brave and informative network.  First, here is the cost this day of caring for all these illegal aliens: $519,267,008.  Second, here is the cost this year of caring for the illegal aliens in custody: $229,560,434,688.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal alien invaders who have flooded into the United States just this year: 2,352,810.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate of illegal aliens currently residing in the U.S. sucking away at the teats of the American taxpayers: 36,352,808.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  Note- the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day has said since the blog’s first inception on July 29, 2009- twelve long years ago today- that the numbers of illegal aliens back then was around 35-50 million whereas now- we believe they are closer to 75-100 million illegals, people that need to be scooped up and deported ASAP.  Newsmax reports that more countries are sending illegals to the United States.  As if we didn’t have enough.
  70. : COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Today we learn that 12 members and/or staff of the Major League Baseball team the Washington Nationals have tested positive for the ‘VID, only one of whom was unvaccinated.  And the health authorities claim that breakthrough cases are RARE.  It sounds more likely to us that once one gets vaccinated for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu; one becomes much more susceptible to this Chi-Com shit than if they haven’t had the vaccine.  Until we learn more, they can talk about VACCINE MANDATES all they want but folks, people are not going to continue taking this crap sitting down.
  71. 2021 Thursday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– The Centers for Disease Control Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said today that ‘COVID-19 vaccine passports could be the way forward.’  Back at ya, Rep. Daniel Perez, R-FL 116th congressional district, says that ‘choice, not mandates, a priority in combatting the Chi-Vi.’  Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi has instructed her personal ‘Pelosi Police—her form of the Joestapo- to arrest visitors and staff who refuse to wear masks on the House side of the Congress.  Wow.  Rep. Kat Cammack, R-FL 3rd congressional district, labeled Pelosi’s mask mandate ‘tyrannical.’  Amen.
  72. : Health and Medical Alerts– The Centers for Disease Control says that Americans should wear masks in 70-percent of America’s counties.  Elsewhere, on Fox News Channel this evening with Judge Janine Pirro filling in for Sean Hannity, it was reported that TWO whistleblowers at Ft. Bliss in Texas were ordered by their higher-ups to cover up the horrendous numbers of COVID-19 infections running amok through the concentration camps holding the little illegal alien brats.  The Joestapo gave orders NOT to share true numbers with the media even as healthcare workers and CBP officials and others providing care to the illegal alien invaders were taking the pandemic out of the holding pens and to their homes where they were infecting their families.  Time to lay in minefields and other anti-personnel traps along the entire southern border.  NOW.  Build the wall, deport them all, and put the Bidenistas- including the head guy and his saggy-skinned wife- and their supporters into federal prisons.
  73. 2021 Thursday K: Joe Biden News I– Republican senators sent drooling Joe Biden a letter today demanding he not host POS Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, a known terrorist, at the White House.  (Note- Joe most likely will).  Speaking of slobbering Joe, a new poll says that his support has plummeted to 46-percent among voters and Rasmussen says that 59-percent of American voters blame the senile old fogey for rising inflation.  (Note- we think old Joe is going to end up like Nicolae and Elena Ceausescu did following the collapse of communism in Eastern Europe). 
  74. 2021 Thursday L: Joe Biden Regime News I– Following the assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moise, the Federal Bureau of Investigation descended upon some businesses in Florida today seeking God knows what.  Meanwhile, landlords across the country are suing the Biden regime over its extension of the highly unfair evictions moratorium rules regarding COVID-19.   Stumbling old Joe asked Congress today to extend the dubious moratorium that is set to expire this week.  Finally, Democrats are delirious today as first-time jobless claims last week fell to 400,000.  Woo-oo!
  75. : Political News I– Well-known, racist Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, DS-RI, still won’t slam the ALL-WHITE restricted beach club of which he is a member, even when Black Lives Matter trash threaten him with violence.  What is it about these frigging Democrats that they do all kinds of racist, bigoted stuff and most of the time there is no price they have to pay for their prejudice?  If Whitehouse were a Republican, he would already be out of the U.S. Senate and on the way back to his, uh, private ALL-WHITE beach club to spend the remainder of his days.
  76. 2021 Thursday N: Political News II– Senator Kyrsten Sinema, DS-AZ, under assault by the likes of Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, aka AOC, and her fellow squad members, says she ‘won’t support the reconciliation bill being pushed by the loony tunes Democratic-Socialists.’  Amen!  Speaking of left-wing lunatics, Senator Bernie Sanders former political PAC- Our Revolution- a communist far, far, far-left group- is rebranding into ‘Pragmatic Progressives’ because it’s clear the old warhorse from Vermont won’t be running for president again.  What fun!
  77. 2021 Thursday O: Political News III– Washington, D.C. Police Department is going to hire 170 new law enforcement officers.  Meanwhile, Rep. Fred Keller, R-PA 12th congressional district, told Newsmax today that Joe Biden’s actions don’t jibe with his words on ‘buying American.’   In other news, Trump supporters raised $7.5 million for the Arizona 2020 Election Audit.  Speaking of Arizona, the third recount has been completed and the ballots will be heading back to their storage site.  (Speaking of election integrity, Joe Biden’s DOJ is launching a task force to investigate threats against (Democratic) election officials).  Next, conservatives want to see RINO hacks Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger booted from the Republican ranks.  (Note- they’re Democrats- Leader McCarthy, send them packing!)
  78. 2021 Thursday P: Miscellaneous News I– Apparently an entity known as “Jetpack Man” is back buzzing Los Angeles International Airport, aka LAX.  Seems like it might be time to shoot this bastard down before he causes a horrendous collision between airliners or with an airliner.  Meanwhile, Rep. Scott Perry, R-PA 10th congressional district, is encouraging his fellow Americans NOT to buy NBA or other sports apparel manufactured by Chi-Com slave labor in Xinjiang Province where the concentration camps are.
  79. 2021 Thursday Q: Observation of the Day– Joe Biden is rapidly becoming to the U.S. what Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom is to California: a LOSER.  Joe is unifying people of all political parties against him with wide open borders, constant insults and anger, and failed policies just as Governor Newsom has people from the far left to the far right uniting together to get him the f**k out of office.  Instead of trying to do something to help the people he was elected to govern, neither Joe nor “Nazi” Newsom can get out of their own way.  This is WHY both of them want to bring illegal aliens to every part of the state or country so they can spread COVID-19 and perhaps allow them to steal the recall election in the Golden State and the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.  We think neither one can save himself and we cannot wait until Recall Election Day in September to boot Newsom out of office and into the nearest dumpster.
  80. 2022 Friday: This past Tuesday, President Donald J. Trump gave a barnburner of a speech in Washington, D.C.  Unlike his rally appearances, this speech hammered away at the Biden regime and the Democrats point by stellar point by stellar point.  IF I were the Dems- and their RINO sycophants- I would be afraid, deathly afraid.  The second time around is going to be far different than the first was, and I would liken President Trump’s second time around as being close to British Prime Minister Winston Churchill.  Churchill save the Brits from the Nazis, the Fascists, and the Imperial Japanese and their allies, whereas I believe President Trump will save us from the communist scum living amongst us and from the Chi-Coms, the Russians, and their lesser allies.  Remarkable things are coming over the horizon, which is why this November, we must send the Democrats packing along with their scumbag RINO allies.  Please, let me know what you think- Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.

[i] We look forward to promoting the music of Thin Lizzy when we promote the music of U2, sometime within the next 4-5 years.  We hope you will be with us when we do.

[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.    The album, “Help!” appeared on Tuesday, 15-November-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[iii] Not sure as to when we will begin promoting the music of Bob Dylan but one day, we sure heck we do.  Stay tuned.

[iv] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.  Sadly, we were shortsighted at the time that we did not present the various members’ solo projects but one day, we hope to rectify that error.

[v] We presented another series of interconnected bands which included Free, Bad Company, Led Zeppelin, the Firm, Mott the Hoople, Ian Hunter, the Yardbirds, and a plethora of solo and group efforts beginning on Wednesday, 02-July-2014 through Sunday, 19-October-2014.  We definitely hope that you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your growing collection.

[vi] 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 celebrated day.

[vii] We began promoting the music of the Grateful Dead- including Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Phil Lesh- beginning on Tuesday, 30-August-2011 through Wednesday, 11-January-2012.  Then, we did a second series featuring more albums by this fabled San Francisco band beginning on Friday, 09-August-2013 through Monday, 19-August-2013.  At some point, we will have to do a third series as the music from this band never ends.  Please, seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

  22. 1945 Saturday: A U.S. Army bomber crashed into the 79th floor of the Empire State Building in New York City, killing 14 people and injuring many more.  Meanwhile, the Senate voted 89-2 ratifying the United Nations Charter.

  45. 2011 Thursday: Astronomers identify a Trojan asteroid orbiting on the same path as the Earth around the Sun; it poses no danger to Earth because it sits in a gravitational ‘sweet spot’.  Meanwhile, as the Obama administration continues its fight to get the debt ceiling raised so it can continue its out-of-control spending spree, U.S. House Speaker John Boehner, RINO-OH, puts the kibosh on a vote on the floor to do just that.  He says, ‘maybe tomorrow.’  Democrats are going berserk.

  51. 2017 Friday:  In the U.S. Senate, the GOP attempted to repeal Obamacare via a ‘skinny vote’ yet Sen. John McCain, a Republican, joins the Democrats to vote the measure down, final vote 51-49.  What a POS.  Barack Hussein Obama[ix] beat Sen. McCain like an old drum on Election Day in 2016, belittled him over the years, and yet, the old war horse- hating Donald Trump as much as he does- voted to keep the signature legislation of his political enemy.  Damned flipping RINOS!  Meanwhile, President Trump appoints General John Kelly his new chief-of-staff. [x]  
  52. 2018 Saturday: Having burnt more than 80,000 acres in its path, the out-of-control Carr Fire reaches Redding, California, claiming at least 5 lives, injuring countless others, and destroying numerous properties.  The liberal Democrats screech “GLOBAL WARMING!” yet everyone knows it is poor forest management as stipulated by the Democratic Party as well as their loathness about building dams and constructing water reclamation projects.
  53. 2019 Sunday: The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, is outed as the first guest editor at the United Kingdom version of Vogue Magazine, the first guest in 103 years.  She would bear partial responsibility with her husband, Prince Harry, for damaging the British Royal Family.  That is what you get when you marry an American skank.
  54. 2020 Tuesday: Much to the delight of their uber-left base, Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee overseeing ‘oversight’ on the Dept. of Justice rip U.S. Attorney-General Bill Barr a new one by asking questions and then disallowing the AG to answer them properly.  The amount of political grandstanding was absolutely horrible but then, those are the Democratic-Socialists who are destroying our country.  GOP committee members did their best to even the score but that becomes impossible when there are more, angry, hateful Dems on the committee than Republicans.  Elsewhere, “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s Prevagen must be working because after giving a speech, he even answered some questions, going off-script several times but not quite as much as we are generally used to seeing so either his handlers were putting in answers to pre-asked questions or the former vice president had a brief moment of lucidity.  He promised to make his VP choice known next week.
  55. 2020 Tuesday A: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 16,660,138 confirmed cases, UP by 263,184 cases, 658,813 confirmed deaths, UP by 6,911 deaths, and 9,699,116 confirmed recoveries, UP by 186,555 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 4,426,281 confirmed cases, UP by 58,202 new cases, 151,374 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,175 new deaths, and 2,151,219 confirmed recoveries, UP by 841,971 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries seems somewhat impossible as every day, the listed number of recoveries is extremely low.  Perhaps more states have reported recoveries yet if you look at the breakdown of the states, far fewer have reported so something is going on…).   
  56. 2020 Tuesday B: 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-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 466,550 confirmed cases, 8,518 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 1,757 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,205 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 54,205 confirmed cases, 1,548 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 412,878 confirmed number of cases, 25,126 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.  Wake up, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo!  Give us the honest numbers you suck-eyed blowfish, especially of the senior citizens you have killed.  Shame on you.

  59. 2021 Wednesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 309,614 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, 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 94,464 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xiii]

[xviii]        
  63. 2021 Wednesday 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 and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.336 per gallon, $2.978 in Florida, $4.087 in Hawaii, and $3.839 in Washington state. [xix]    Let’s look at one other location- Illinois: $3.395.  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- Mali: $4.572 per U.S. Gallon.[xx]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,575,821,402,785 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Netherlands, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Israel with $49 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  64. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Folks, by our count, today is Day No. 127 for the purported ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the unmitigated disaster along our southern border and to have done absolutely NOTHING about it other than to say some stupid stuff here and then begin cackling like a rural crow.  It’s also Day No. 33 since her one and only visit to the border to view the crisis firsthand.  What an embarrassment to not only the country but to the entire flipping world.   Next, here are the numbers as presented by Pro-Freedom One America News: first, here is the cost this day for caring for the invaders: $584,652,608.  Second, here is the cost for caring for the alien invaders this year: $228,529,913,856.  Third, here is the number of illegal aliens who swept across the border just this year: 2,342,248.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE number of illegals estimated to be lurking within the shadows of the United States as we speak: 36,342,248.  Note- the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day has said from our inception back in the early spring of 2009 that the numbers THEN were around 35-50 million illegal aliens whereas now, we believe the numbers are closer to 75-to-100 million frigging illegal aliens.  Round them up, brand them, and then deport every single flipping one of the scoundrels back to the s—hole countries from whence they came.  NOW.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  65. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– The moron governor of California- Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom- struggling to keep his job- today granted Medi-Cal insurance to ALL illegal aliens in the state over the age of 50 which is around 250,000 of them at taxpayer costs.  We hope to get you out of office and then begin rounding this refuse up and sending it back to whence it came.  Bastards.
  66. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Imprisoned freedom fighter Alexei Navalny is urging ALL Russians to mobilize ahead of the September elections.   In other news, the fifth high-ranking Cuban military officer or politician has mysteriously died.  They must have been standing with the Cuban people against the totalitarian, communist government.  Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms are courting the Taliban so they can come into the hellhole of a country and rape it of its natural resources while constructing their Belt and Road communist takeover project.  (We hope the Chi-Coms become embroiled in yet another war in the so-called ‘graveyard of empires’ for at least 40 years- it would serve them right).   In other overseas news, for some unknown reason, Joe Biden is imposing NEW SANCTIONS on Syria.  Uh, okay.  WHY?  They are NOT our problem.
  67. 2021 Wednesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The National Football League is going to require vaccinated players to wear RED wristbands and unvaccinated players to wear YELLOW wristbands (while terminating coaches and staff who won’t get the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines).   In other Chi-Vi news, the U.S. House of Representatives physician, Dr. Brian Monahan, a Pelosi hack, has ordered EVERYONE to wear masks in the House.  NO exceptions.  Meanwhile, so-called ‘rare’ BREAKTHROUGH cases of the Chi-Vi are slamming into fully vaccinated citizens, something mumbling, stumbling old ‘Cho-Mo Joe’ Biden says is ‘impossible.’    
  68. 2021 Wednesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– In other Xi Jinping Bat Flu news, vaccinated U.S. travelers won’t have to quarantine upon arrival in Great Britain. Wow.  Elsewhere, New York City Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio gave up on giving people a free bag of French fries and is now offering $100 to anyone who will go out and get vaccinated.  F**k him.  Elsewhere, intelligent politicians and medical professionals have pointed out that the rates of hospitalizations for the China Virus are a better indicator as to how bad the ongoing pandemic is which means it is NOT as bad as what the Democrats are pushing because fewer people are being hospitalized for the Kung Flu.  Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci says he’s ‘not flipflopped, no, the virus has changed.’  Elsewhere, Dr. Alan Dershowitz, famed legal scholar, author, and professor said to Newsmax that the ‘courts will likely back COVID-19 vaccination mandates.’  Scary.  MARK OF THE BEAST to be sure… (Interesting note- Forbes Magazine reports that there are 40 NEW BILLIONAIRES who have become fabulously wealthy from the Chi-Com lab-generated pandemic).
  69. 2021 Wednesday K: Health and Medical Alerts– Meanwhile, as more images of COVID-19-infected illegal aliens appear across the country, more and more Americans on all sides of the political aisle are growing increasingly angrier.  There are reports of sick illegals being dumped all across the U.S.- most notably in RED states and cities- and left in the streets.  There, they spread not only the Wuhan Virus but other foul and detestable diseases that can or are causing a national health emergency.  A national reckoning is coming and it’s coming soon and with House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s margin being slashed to just THREE with the election of Republican Jake Ellzey, R-TX 6th congressional district, we hope that reckoning is coming and it’s coming soon.
  70. 2021 Wednesday L: Political News I– Top Democrats are encouraging brain-dead Joe Biden to negate $50,000 loan debt per student borrower.  This is more money the federal government is going to borrow from the Chi-Coms.  Talk about a National Security issue.  Man, oh, man.   In other news, the new DEATH TAX the Democratic-Socialist Party is proposing could cost 1 million jobs and $1 trillion of U.S. GDP over the next 10 years.  WTF is wrong with these SOBs?   In other news, Senate Republicans have agreed to $1 trillion in infrastructure spending. 
  71. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News II– Former Rep. Peter King, R-NY 2nd congressional district, said of House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, that she ‘stacked the January 06, 2021 (sham) select committee’ with a bunch of party apparatchiks and RINO Republicans.  Speaking of Mumbles, Rep. Chip Roy, R-TX 21st congressional district, lit up the House speaker over her demand that everyone wear masks while allowing millions of illegals into the country and then distributing them across the United States without masks and COVID-19 tests.  WTF is up with that?
  72. 2021 Wednesday N: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– An imbecile named Thomas Patrick Connally Jr. was charged in a Maryland federal court with threatening to murder Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci and his family as well as the National Institute of Health director, Dr. Francis Collins.  Apparently, the bonehead was sending threatening emails to Dr. Fauci, Dr. Collins, and to others and now must pay the piper.  There are always some in every crowd.  We would never call for anyone to be attacked, assaulted, raped, robbed, or beaten.  Like Democrats, we might participate in schadenfreude as do the Dems and frankly, millions of their supporters, we would never encourage any illegal act, even when we jokingly talk about ‘lead to the back of the head’ in the Annual Lavrentiy Beria contests.  It’s all for a hoot.  In other crime news, BIG DEMOCRAT donor (and big friend of the Clintons) Ed Buck from West Hollywood, California, was convicted on all nine counts of giving methamphetamine to young black men for sex, two of whom died.  Wow.   Finally, in Joe Biden’s America, convicted pedophile and rapist Dr. Larry Nassar received COVID-19 stimulus checks but has yet to pay restitution to his victims.  ONLY in Joe Biden’s America…speaking of Joe’s America, the Department of Justice is dropping investigations into nursing home deaths in Michigan and New York.
  73. 2021 Wednesday O: Big Tech News– Apple beats fiscal Q3 earnings expectations.  Likewise, Alphabet- the parent company of Google- is reporting surging ad revenues.   Speaking of Google, they are delaying the return of employees to their office while mandating ALL employees get one of the Chi-Vi vaccines before they do or to find another job.
  74. 2021 Wednesday P: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Sadly, today, famed bassist and vocalist with the ‘Little ole Band from Texas’- ZZ Top- Dusty Hill died in his sleep this morning at the age of 72.  He died in Houston, Texas, and his death was reported by his two band mates, Billy Gibbons and Frank Beard.  According to his wishes, the band will continue to perform their fiery brand of Texas-Deep South Blues.  God bless you, Dusty, have a glorious afterlife!
  75. 2021 Wednesday Q: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3581 what with a $11 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 20, 24, 32, 35, 39, and Mega 25.  Out of 85,662 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $7,862 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at (1) Valero, Salinas, CA 93906; (2) Smart & Final in Goleta, CA 93117; (3) Raley’s in Sacramento, CA 95826; and (4) Shell in Palmdale, CA 93551.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #867 with a jackpot of $186 million up for grabs: 25, 30, 53, 59, 60, and Powerball 05.  Stick around for the results.  Update: Out of 77,278 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $10,200.
  76. 2022 Thursday: California’s incredibly stupid governor, pretty boy Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom, has bitten off far more than his pursy little lips can chew: he has launched ads against Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida and Greg Abbott of Texas.  For some reason known only to his petulant little mind, Governor Newsom seems to believe he has a record on which to run.  Wrong!  His record is one of failure and the ONLY reason he survived his recall election is because the GOP did not get behind any of his opponents seeking to unseat the little prick.  I have said it before and will say it yet again: California is not a LOST state.  We are a state waiting to explode.  IF only the GOP would come in here and help us push Brian Dahle across the finish line, we could get this bum out of office.  Perhaps if the GOP won’t do it, we cannot wait to see the ads the governors of Texas and Florida are going to launch at him come late October.  Going to be some grisly but hilarious s**t, we expect.  Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys record label released “Carl and the Passions- So Tough” and “Holland” on one compact disc on April 21, 2003.  Here is the overview of each: The next album by the Beach Boys marked a distinct move into much more social consciousness that began on the preceding album.  The Beach Boys were touring college and university campuses, were all about conservation, the grandfather of today’s loony tunes ‘green movement.’  Beards were getting longer, hair well past the collars and what with the departure of Bruce Johnston- asked to leave because he would not grow a beard, embrace Transcendental Meditation- the band brought into South African musicians, BLACK MUSICIANS to complete the social consciousness move.  Thus, we have a new album, “Carl and the Passions- So Tough,” an album that came out on May 15, 1972.  The band now featured Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), Blondie Chapin (guitars, vocals), and Ricky Fataar (drums and vocals- Dennis was having hand problems due to a major cut that prevented him from pounding the skins).  Next, here is the overview of “Holland”:  The next album from the Beach Boys- “Holland”- came out on January 08, 1973 and was one of their best.  The band at this time had abandoned the West Coast for the Atlantic coast- in Holland- and produced some stunning material.  The lineup once again featured Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), Blondie Chapin (guitars, vocals), and Ricky Fataar (drums and vocals).  Every tune on this album is excellent.  For less than $20, you can add not one but two albums to your collection in one shot.  Enjoy.

[i] We began offering the musi of Pink Floyd beginning on Monday, 20-April-2020 through Sunday, 12-July-2020.  This included not only the band’s music but also that of all five members- Syd Barrett, Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Rick Wright, and Nicky Mason.

[ii] Not sure when exactly we will present the music of Elvin Bishop along with Electric Flag and Buddy Miles.

[iii] We presented another series of interconnected bands which included Free, Bad Company, Led Zeppelin, the Firm, Mott the Hoople, Ian Hunter, the Yardbirds, and a plethora of solo and group efforts beginning on Wednesday, 02-July-2014 through Sunday, 19-October-2014.  We definitely hope that you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your growing collection.

[iv] We hope to promote the music of this famous British band, T-Rex, sometime within the next five years.

[v] We shared the music of Deep Purple, Ian Gillan, Captain Beyond, Elf, and Rainbow beginning on Tuesday, 20-March-2018 and concluded this massive offering on Sunday, 14-October-2018.  Please seek out the music by all of these phenomenal bands.  All are fabulous.

[vi] When we present the music of the Allman Brothers Band, we will present the music of Gov’t Mule.  Stay tuned for further developments.

[vii] We hope to promote the music of both the Band and its members sometime in the next 10-15 years.  The presentation would include the solo catalogs of Robbie Robertson, Rick Danko, Levon Helm, Garth Hudson, and Richard Manuel.

[viii] We began promoting the music of the Grateful Dead- including Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Phil Lesh- beginning on Tuesday, 30-August-2011 through Wednesday, 11-January-2012.  Then, we did a second series featuring more albums by this fabled San Francisco band beginning on Friday, 09-August-2013 through Monday, 19-August-2013.  At some point, we will have to do a third series as the music from this band never ends.  Please, seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[ix] Millions of Americans believe Barack Obama should be disqualified as a president because most believe he was born outside the United States which would ban him from ever seeking the highest office in the land.  At the very least, an asterisk should be placed by his name in all U.S. history books.

[x] We would come to learn later that Gen. John Kelly was a dishonorable man who worked against the Trump agenda instead of working to help his boss.  The man is a disgraceful swamp creature and should spend the rest of his days living in shame.

  58. 2021 Tuesday 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 and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have dropped to $4.331 per gallon, $2.973 in Florida, $4.079 in Hawaii, and $3.838 in Washington state. [xiii]    Let’s look at one other location- Idaho: $3.750.  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- Cuba: $4.542 per U.S. Gallon. [xiv]   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,572,345,327,101 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS. [xv]  oward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Bermuda, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Netherlands with $70 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  59. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Folks, today is Day No. 126 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the border and NOT to be ‘on the job.’  Add to this the fact that today is Day No. 32 since her one and only visit to the southern border and you can see why so many Americans are dismayed at her having this extremely important job.  It is high time she vacate the post and possibly the ‘vice presidency’ which she is unqualified to hold.  Next, here are the stats regarding the costs and the numbers of the illegal alien invasion as presented by One America News: first, the cost just this day of caring for the illegals is $536,859,584.  Second, here is the cost this year for caring for the millions of illegals invading the U.S.: $227,386,228,736.  Third, here are the numbers of illegals estimated to have crossed into the United States just this year: 2,330,526.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE ESTIMATE of illegals on the lam within the United States: 36,330,528.  Now, the American Institute of Culinary Politics disagrees with OAN on the last number as 12 years ago when the AICPENDBLOG.COM first began doing business, we estimated the numbers of illegals living in the U.S. as between 35-50 million.  Now, we believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million illegal aliens all of whom must be scooped up, imprisoned, and then deported. 
  60. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials are warning illegal alien invaders NOT to attempt the desert crossing during summer months.  Let ‘em try and dump the skeletons back over the fence on the Mexican side.  Meanwhile, Rep. Brian Babin, R-TX 36th congressional district, says that a block grant will allow border states get their hands on money dedicated to building the wall.
  61. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Now that the Chi-Coms are lord and master of Hong Kong, the first person charged under the new freedom-stifling law- 24-year-old Leon Tong Ying-kit- has been convicted of terrorism and secession which means the former restaurant chef could face life in prison in Xinjiang Province’s slave labor camps.  We expect this means the pro-democracy freedom fighter will be locked up in mainland China.  Next, North and South Korea have restored the hotline between the two countries.  Meanwhile, Russia has now blocked imprisoned Alexei Navalny’s website citing extremism and propaganda as the reasons as to WHY Vladimir Putin ordered it closed.
  62. 2021 Tuesday I: Foreign News / Overseas News II– Cuba is blaming the United States for a Molotov cocktail attack on its embassy in Paris, France.  Uh, okay.  Speaking of communist Cuba, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, said that ‘Joe Biden’s actions on Cuba are meaningless.’  Absolutely true.  Meanwhile, Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Benet is set to visit the White House next week to talk with the earpiece in Joe Biden’s ear.  Should be a fascinating conversation.  Elsewhere, news hit today that exposed Iran’s classified plans to wage cyberwarfare on the United States.  Time to start dropping some bombs on these scumbags.  (Note- will a WOKE U.S. military do this or are they more worried about WHITE SUPREMACISM?) 
  63. 2021 Tuesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– We learn today that at least 30-percent of illegal aliens in ICE custody are refusing the Chi-Vi vaccines.  Either they take it- by the Democrats own reasoning on this topic- or we immediately deport them back to whence the f**k they came.  As for Americans, the reasons they cite for not rushing out to get vaccinated are ‘personal choice,’ ‘antibodies,’ and ‘vaccine side effects.’  In other Chi-Vi news, former U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams says that the ‘honor system’ regarding masks has ‘failed.’ 
  64. 2021 Tuesday K: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– The Centers for Disease Control has reversed itself on the wearing of masks yet again by saying that everyone- vaccinated, unvaccinated, or a space alien- must wear masks indoors.  Uh, okay. 
  65. 2021 Tuesday L: Health and Medical Alerts– As drug prices continue skyrocketing, Republican senators are urging U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra to allow Americans to import cheaper drugs from Canada as they were during President Donald J. Trump’s time in office.  This should make sense to EVERYONE so WTF Secretary Becerra?  In other fascinating news, the deeply troubled Empire State dictator- Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov, says that ‘health authorities are going door to door to see if people have been vaccinated for the Yellow Fever 2021 and if they haven’t, they are going to stuff you into a car, take you to the vaccination site, and get you vaccinated whether you want it or not.’  Sounds a lot like kidnapping to us…
  66. 2021 Tuesday M: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Following the rampant election fraud that occurred on Election Day 2020 and in the subsequent hours and days, numerous states- approximately one-third of them- are tightening up their election laws so as to prevent the Democrats from stealing future elections.  About time.
  67. 2021 Tuesday N: 2020 Election Audit– Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton- recently endorsed for re-election over RINO George P. Bush by President Donald J. Trump- says he ‘won’t back down in calling for a forensic audit of Texas 2020 Election results.’  God bless you, Mr. AG.  Meanwhile, Arizona’s senate has issued subpoenas demanding that Maricopa County hand over its routers for inspection.  
  68. 2021 Tuesday O: Joe Biden News I– Outrage continues to grow over Joe Biden slamming a female reporter yesterday- NBC’s Kelly O’Donnell- as being a ‘pain in the neck’ for asking fundamental questions about the Chi-Com Virus vaccines.  What’s up with that, Joe?
  69. : Political News I– A recent poll of Republican primary voters in Wyoming says that 70-percent of those voters have a NEGATIVE view of RINO Rep. Liz Cheney.  Meanwhile, as the Democrats and two RINO flunkies hold the show trial hearings on the events of January 06, 2021, a group of House Republicans are planning on conducting their own hearings into WHY more than 400 people arrested on that fateful day are still being held in the Joestapo D.C. prison, why they are routinely being mistreated, humiliated, and in some instances, even tortured seven months later.  Why isn’t the American Civil Liberties Union fighting to free these people?
  70. 2021 Tuesday Q: Political News II– A new poll says that 6-in-10 conservative Republicans believe that President Donald J. Trump should continue to have a massive voice in GOP politics.  Meanwhile, former Fox 10 news reporter Kari Lake is running to displace Copper State RINO Governor Doug Ducey in November 2022.  Ducey needs to go.  In other news, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, says she is going to ‘sue Nancy Pelosi.’  Go for it, Marjorie, go for it.  Rep. Jodey Arrington, R-TX 19th congressional district, says that ‘all eyes should be on Nancy Pelosi as she bears full responsibility for Capitol Hill security.’  She is, after all, known as the ‘mayor of Capitol Hill’…
  71. 2021 Thursday R: Miscellaneous News I– A new report says that 35-percent of black Americans report mistreatment while shopping.
  72. 2021 Thursday S: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– President Donald J. Trump said that ‘Dems have made once-great cities paradises for criminals.’  Elsewhere, imprisoned in a conservatorship from hell, pop singer Britney Spears with the help of a new lawyer is trying to oust her father as head of her conservatorship.  We hope you succeed.  In other crime news, following former U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer’s mugging yesterday in Oakland, California, law enforcement is offering a reward for information on the scumbag or scumbags who assaulted the aged senator while she was traipsing through a park.  (Note- we are curious as to whether former Senator Boxer will now become a conservative?  Do you know what they say?  Conservatives are former liberals who have been mugged).  
  73. 2021 Thursday T: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News II– Elsewhere, Robert Aaron Long- the 22-year-old perp behind the Massage Parlors Massacre last year in Atlanta, Georgia- pled guilty today to FOUR of the murders.  Next, a Florida babysitter, Terry McKirchy, has been indicted on a murder charge 37-years later after the baby he shook nearly four decades ago, died in 2019.  Prosecutors have been building their case since then and have charged the failed sitter with a murder charge.   Finally, former U.S. Air Force intelligence analyst- 33-year-old Daniel Hale- who helped his bosses find drone targets in Afghanistan- just got 44 months in a federal slammer for leaking classified information on the drone program to a journalist.
  74. 2021 Thursday U: Special Election News– Democrats and RINOs alike are wetting their pants with joy- the Era of Donald J. Trump is over!  Blast the trumpets from the rooftops, Republican Jake Ellzey, R-TX 6th congressional district, beat Trump-endorsed Susan Wright who was running to replace her late husband, Ron.  It is said with this single victory, Donald J. Trump is no more so stop the sham investigation into the events of January 06, 2021, stop with all the sobbing and whining, and let out the political prisoners languishing in the Joestapo Washington, D.C. federal gulag.  (Note- having seen Mr. Ellzey on various news channels, he is a pro-Trump guy so WTF?  Still, if it makes them excited, go for it!)
  75. 2021 Thursday V: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Legendary pilot Dale “Snort” Snodgrass has shocked the aviation community with his untimely passing in a crash in Idaho.  The famed pilot flew more hours in an F-4 Tomcat- most of them out of Naval Air Station Oceana and lost his life when the private plane in which he was flying crashed this past Saturday.  The flyer was 72 years old.
  76. 2021 Thursday W: U.S. House Of Representatives News I– In the House today at the January 06, 2021 Stalinist show trial, i.e. Round No. 2 of the greatest FALSE FLAG OPERATION in the history of the United States, four Capitol Hill law enforcement officers including tatted-up freak Officer Michael Fanone- sat before the friendly inquisitors blubbering and crying about how fearful they were that the ‘Trump supporters’ were going to tear them ‘limb from limb’ and how their kids and women would be wailing and crying over their deaths.  One officer said he got a ‘split lip’ which to us is vastly different than having one’s arms, legs, and head torn off- such is the modern-day generation of Americans.  In our view, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, should be in the hotseat answering questions as to WHY SHE didn’t act on intelligence and approve President Donald J. Trump’s offer of large numbers of National Guard troops?  (Note- the Democrats are having a hell of time in that they cannot convince enough Americans that what they saw on TV on the Sixth of January was something other than a carefully orchestrated DEMOCRAT PARTY show.  The Dems stirred this up and with plenty of FBI informants and agents in the crowd to urge and encourage hundreds of Americans to enter into the Capitol, it was easy to entrap the poor souls currently languishing in the D.C. slammer being abused at the hands of the Joestapo).    
  77. 2021 Thursday X: U.S. Senate News I– Three Republican senators are appealing to the United States Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade, the jaded ruling that liberals have used to murder children at all stages of gestation in the womb and also on the birthing table.  This evil crap must stop.  Elsewhere, Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says that ending the student loan debt pause (due to COVID-19) will ‘harm the recovering U.S. economy.’  (Note- hey, Chuck- how does allowing students to continue refraining from paying their debt is somehow helpful to the U.S. economy?  What a flipping dimwit).
  78. 2021 Thursday Y: Federal and State Court News– The courts are forcing Indiana and Maryland to continue participating in the federal unemployment insurance program so that people can continue staying at home (while illegal aliens are taking their jobs.  We saw a story online last night that said illegals are jumping at the chance to get Chi-Vi vaccinations (they aren’t) so they can help the booming U.S. economy recover.  Oh, really?)
  79. 2021 Tuesday Z: Sports News I– American gymnast Simone Biles withdrew from team gymnastics citing injuries to her pride.  Likewise, fellow American athlete Naomi Osaka said that the pressure was a ‘bit much’ as she went down in flames.
  80. 2021 Tuesday AA: Observation of the Day– Friends, having watched the first full day of ‘testimony’ by four, clearly partisan Capitol Hill Police Department hacks (who most likely will be getting BIG BUMPS in pay, rank, perhaps even homes, schools for their kids, and additional vacation benefits) and their opposites on the ‘select committee’ all snivel and cry, all I could think about is that I’m glad these were not the politicians leading us in World War II.  Imagine if they were and we had television around the globe, imagine Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, and Tojo watching them snivel and cry about a similar event, they would each think to themselves, ‘we have these pansies licked.’  Chairman Xi Jinping, Russian President Vladimir Putin, and the Grand Ayatollah Ali Khamenei watching the spectacle of blubbering, wailing politicians, and our Capitol police.  Imagine that.  Friends, it won’t be too far off before the Chi-Coms begin hitting the beaches of Taiwan, before the Russians reassemble the old Soviet Union, and the Iranians extend their reach to the Mediterranean Sea if these losers are the people charged with protecting us.  I am ashamed of having had to watch this and I feel sullied that this crap is occurring in our country.  We stand on the cusp of a new civil war and what’s more, I believe we can win it.  These scumbags have no clue as to what they are awakening and I, my friends, remain a Democrat.  Of Madam Pelosi’s show trial, I think Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, R-PA 14th congressional district, summed it all up when he said: ‘it’s political theater.’  So true, so absolutely true.  -Chef Cheryl “Cherry” La Tigre.
  81. 2021 Tuesday BB: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1680 what with a $153 million jackpot on the line: 02, 35, 36, 54, 64, and Mega 11.  Out of 76, 602 winning tickets in the Golden State, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $9,106 apiece.
  82. 2022 Wednesday: As the “Voice of Freedom from Occupied Los Angeles,” let me share with you how Los Angelinos feel about the worthless POS who serves as our district attorney.  George Gascon- facing an imminently successful recall- is among the worst, perhaps worse than Chesa Boudin in San Francisco was.  Instead of enforcing the law, he warns citizens of his community to dress down, not to wear anything even remotely expensive lest thieves, murderers, and rapists follow them to their homes and accost them.  Many hope that the violence befalling us will soon befall his family and him in the worst of ways because this is the only thing leftwing communists such as he understands.  We fully expect his recall to be successful and once it is, the people of the city will launch all manner of punitive actions on the criminals infesting our streets that will make ‘Purge’ movies look tame.  Time for Gascon to experience what the rest of us experience every day only in spades.  Let me know what you think- Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0904 a 40” x 60” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Saguaros and Teddy Bears.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclees, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Original Beach Boy, David Marks, put out his own album on April 12, 2003, “Something Funny Going On.”  This is a challenging album to find which is why we suggest going to Discogs or AllMusic to see if you can locate it.  Many believe that Marks is a musician who belongs on the periphery which sadly, is incorrect.  He joined the Beach Boys when Al Jardine left the group to attend dental school as he lived across the street from the Wilson Brothers and was as musical as they were.  When Al came back, Marks left and over the intervening years played with numerous musical groups until eventually returning to the Beach Boys after the turn of the century and following the deaths of both Dennis and Carl Wilson.  This is an excellent album, one that Marks performs most of the instruments on.  We hope you will seek it out and see if it’s a worthy addition to your never-ending, ever-growing musical collection.  Please, seek it out wherever you shop for the best in music- you will be glad you did.

207. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, JULY 26, 2022

2022 Tuesday: I would love to sit down with “Lyin’ Liz” Cheney, the soon-to-be ex-representative from Wyoming and tell this incredibly stupid bi**h that the more she and her cronies go after President Donald J. Trump, the stronger they make him and his movement. I know Democrats who want to see Joe Biden relegated to the dumpster fire of history and President Trump and pro-America politicians and bureaucrats returned to the White House and government.

[x]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000027.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.48 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.04.     In Falklands Islands Pound, one greenback equals 0.708843 and in Fijian Dollar, a buck equals 2.06 and in French Pacific Franc, one dollar equals 100.90 of theirs.[xi]       
  63. 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 and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.332 per gallon, $2.967 in Florida, $4.065 in Hawaii, and $3.837 in Washington state. [xii]    Let’s look at one other location- Iowa: $2.983.  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- Uganda: $4.505 per U.S. Gallon.[xiii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,568,407,681,913 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xiv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Germany, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Bermuda with $73 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  64. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 125 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and her 31st day since her one and only visit to the El Paso Sector along the border.  Sadly, for the country, the invasion of the United States continues around the clock as thousands cross every single day into the country, turning themselves over to border authorities, and then being distributed across the entire country.   We learned today that Joe Biden’s halting of the border wall project is costing U.S. taxpayers $3 million per day in shut down costs, security costs, and other incidental costs. 
  65. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, raised an important question: ‘Where was U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas’ warning to all the illegals flooding across the southern border?’  After all, the DHS secretary warned Cubans NOT to venture to the United States as they would be denied entry into the United States.   Meanwhile, Senator John Kennedy, R-LA, says the Biden halt on building the border wall is “a crime against nature and intelligence.”  Next, Governor Kristi Noem journeyed to the Tex-Mex border today to view the ongoing Joe Biden-caused crisis occurring there around the clock.
  66. 2021 Monday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– The Tunisian president has shuttered the doors on the nation’s parliament amid rising civil unrest.  Elsewhere, the Russians did some chest-thumping today by announcing the development of a ‘doomsday plane.’  What is this?  A nuclear-powered aircraft that can remain in the skies overhead 24/7/365 armed with nuclear weapons?  That would be something.  Meanwhile, we learned today that HUNTER BIDEN’S art agent has had DEEP TIES to communist China since 2014.  Say it ain’t so, drooling Joe!  All this talk about ‘ethics’ regarding Hunter Biden’s crooked dealings is nothing more than BULLSHIT.
  67. 2021 Monday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– France announced that it warned the United States back in 2015 about the COVID-19 experiments going on in the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  Did the U.S. take note of the warning?  It seems not.   Likewise, Rep. Mo Brooks, R-AL 5th congressional district, says of the Chi-Vi that ‘COVID-19 is part of the Chi-Coms unrestricted biowarfare program against the United States.’  It is getting close to time when we should light these communist SOBs up with as many neutron bombs as we can muster.  Right on cue, drooling Joe Biden plans to keep travel restrictions, i.e., mask requirements, in place citing the various COVID-19 variants.  Hey, Joe!  How about closing the f**king southern border?   (Note- none of us believe that Joe Biden can tell his ass from a hole in the ground.  Yes, that’s cruel, we know it, but so apropos).
  68. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– A national debate continues over the wearing/not wearing of masks in schools as the first day of instruction draws closer.  However, we learned today that on Friday, Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki said that the White House is ‘NOT mandating Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccinations for White House staff.’  Wow.  What’s good enough for them is good enough for us.   Elsewhere, as the war against the unvaccinated continues, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, says the ‘ban on the unvaccinated is akin to segregation.’  Amen.  In other Chi-Vi news, the Veterans Administration becomes the first federal agency requiring EVERY health care employee to be vaccinated for Wuhan Virus Crisis. 
  69. 2021 Monday K: Health and Medical Alerts– California will now require proof of vaccination for the China Virus from ALL state workers no matter who you are.   Regarding the Chi-Com Beijing Bug, a new Rasmussen Poll says that public opinion of the media’s COVID-19 coverage has soured since President Donald J. Trump left the White House.   Elsewhere, Pfizer and Moderna- according to a report- are going to expand their ongoing studies into Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines for kids aged 5-to-11.  The kids don’t need the damned vaccines, folks.
  70. 2021 Monday L: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Wisconsin GOP lawmakers are now promising a forensic audit of the 2020 Elections in their state.  We know a great deal of election fraud occurred in the Cheese Head State in the hours post-Election Day.
  71. 2021 Monday M: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden regime is demanding that citizenship for the DREAMERS- illegal aliens brought here as brats- must be included in the $3.5 trillion budget bill.  Oh, really? 
  72. 2021 Monday N: Political News I– Rep. Nancy Mace, R-SC 1st congressional district, has unveiled a new bill today, the “Free Britney Act” in honor of pop star Britney Spears who is trapped in a conservatorship run by her father.  We hope she is able to get out of this cruel and highly unnecessary imposition on her life and that perhaps her leeching father will end up in the slammer.  Meanwhile, Senator Mike Lee, R-UT, says that ‘Joe Biden’s infrastructure bill will create a reverse Robin Hood effect by which, the rich will get richer and the poor poorer.’  Amen.  Speaking of the infrastructure bill, President Donald J. Trump says that the GOP must wait on passing this mess until after the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.  Amen to this, too.
  73. 2021 Monday O: Political News II– A new poll says that a whopping 81-percent of the American people are alarmed by the growing presence of the Chi-Coms across the United States government as well as their presence in media and popular culture.  The American people also are fearful that the Chi-Coms are buying up vast tracts of U.S. farmland.  This crap must stop, and the Chi-Coms must be booted from everything into which, their evil tentacles have slithered. 
  74. 2021 Monday P: Political News III– “America’s Mayor” Rudy Giuliani continues to blast Joe Biden for cozying up with communists while the Cuban people continue protesting for their freedom! [xv]  In fact, over the weekend in Washington, D.C., a crowd of Cuban Americans showed up and raised their voices in front of the White House, demanding the Biden regime do something to help their friends, relatives, neighbors, and fellow citizens.  Speaking of protests, another good-sized crowd showed up in front of the Joestapo D.C. headquarters where more than 500 Capitol Hill protesters are still being held and abused.  For whatever reason, the D.C. Joestapo is trying to crush out the spirits of American patriots by abusing and mistreating these people who six months after the ‘incident’ are still being denied bail.  Whatever happened to bail reform? 
  75. 2021 Monday Q: Political News IV– Rep. Tom Emmer, R-MN 6th congressional district, head of the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) guarantees that the GOP is going to retire U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, D-CA 12th congressional district, ‘PERMANENTLY.’  Man, she needs to be retired now.  The nonagenarian, disheveled, lemon-sucking speaker should have been retired years ago.  We hope you are able to keep your word on this.  We would rather see Rep. “Shtupping Steny” Hoyer, DS-MD 5th congressional district, running the show.  
  76. 2021 Monday R: Political News V– Tomorrow is the beginning of U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s Stalinist show trial- the January 06, 2021, Capitol Hill Riots Select Committee- and all eyes are on Washington, D.C. for the SHOW TRIAL OF THE CENTURY!  Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district, says that House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-CA, 23rd congressional district, MUST PULL Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY At-Large district, and Rep. Adam “Kiss Ass” Kinzinger, RINO-IL 16th congressional district, from the select committee.  We agree.  IF Leader McCarthy fails to do this, AICPENDBLOG.COM members in California will work at getting him out in November 2022.  In other news, Donald Trump Jr. is leading in favorability polls.   (Leader McCarthy did label Kinzinger and Cheney as little more than “Pelosi Republicans.”  How true.  Vote this scum out of office).
  77. 2021 Monday S: Miscellaneous News I– A New Jersey woman continues to suffer daily fines of $250 for putting out signs that are derogatory of enfeebled Joe Biden in her front yard.  Where can the AICPENDBLOG.COM send money to help you continue putting out these patriotic signs?  In other miscellaneous news, Chef Lilah Paulikovich of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day says that over the weekend when she was citing VAERS on our Twitter page that a reader said you ‘can’t take everything the federal Vaccine Adverse Effects Reporting System says.’  That left her somewhat flabbergasted as she said to this individual that ‘you liberals drop to your knees in front of big government on everything else it says so why not VAERS?’  No answer to her question.  Isn’t it amazing how libs always pick and choose which government entities they choose to follow or quote?
  78. 2021 Monday T: Economic News– Bitcoin’s rise has helped to lift all other cryptocurrencies up in value although the ‘Tether’ cryptocurrency is being investigated for possible bank fraud.  Elsewhere, Dutch company Philips beats Q2 forecasts ahead of respirator device recall.  In other economic news, Irish budget airlines Ryanair projects 100 million passengers this year.  Even though they have had some downturns, they are bullish on their future.
  79. 2021 Monday U: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– Noted communist financier George Soros has funded more than $1 million to help ‘Defund the Police’ efforts across the United States.  When the hell is Black Ops going to run this bastard to earth and whack him?  Enough is flipping enough already.  In other news, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, DS-NY, aka the Love Gov, aka the Gropin’ Gov, is questioning the neutrality of the Empire State’s prosecutors who are investigating the cretin for a variety of crimes such as sexual assault, killing nursing home residents by seeding facilities with Chi-Vi-infected patients, and other crimes.  We hope to see the governor wearing an orange jump suit sometime soon.  Elsewhere, lawyers for so-called ‘QAnon Shaman’ Jacob Chansley are trying to get their client released now that he is suffering from mental illness due to his ongoing mistreatment in the Joestapo jail in Washington, D.C.  LET THESE PEOPLE OUT OF PRISON NOW- this is not America.  IF it is, you are behaving like the federal government did back when the accused assassins of President Abraham Lincoln were mistreated and tortured.  This is NOT good.
  80. 2021 Monday V: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– House Democrats are unifying behind their goal of dirtying the souls of EVERY American by stripping away the Hyde and Helms Amendments that prohibit using taxpayer dollars to fund abortions in the United States (Hyde Amendment) and abroad (Helms Amendment).  WTF do the taxpayers have to fund abortions for women both here in the United States and across the world.  WTF is wrong with these evil people?  They are putting bullseyes on their backs, that’s for sure.  (Note- the Democrats and the RINOs reap big rewards from money culled from the sale of fetal body parts that end up in their hip pockets via political donations).
  81. 2021 Monday W: Big Tech News– In an all-too common occurrence, hackers hacked into What’s App and got the information from approximately 1,500 U.S. government employees as well as from journalists and activists.  It’s almost as if BIG TECH permits this kind of crap to happen.   Elsewhere, Amazon.com is pushing to get individual apartment keys from building superintendents so as to enter people’s apartments ostensibly to leave people’s packages inside.  Wow.  What could go wrong with this?
  82. 2021 Monday X: Natural Disasters News– Due to a massive sandstorm raging in Utah, at least seven people were killed in a massive vehicle pileup and numerous other people injured.  Elsewhere, five firefighters who suffered fire burns in the Devil’s Creek, Montana, are recovering.  God bless you, folks!
  83. 2021 Monday Y: Sports News I– A U.S. medical student has won an Olympics first and won GOLD in fencing.  She beat a Russian out.  Excellent.  Meanwhile, U.S. Army Lt. Amber English won a GOLD medal in skeet shooting.  In other Olympics news, four new sports are debuting this year: karate, surfing, skateboarding, and competitive climbing.   Sadly, viewing numbers for the 2021 Tokyo Summer Olympics are way, way down.  Maybe get rid of the WOKE bullshit? 
  84. 2021 Monday Z: U.S. Military News– As all hell continues breaking across Afghanistan, the U.S. military says that it will support its Afghan allies with continued airstrikes against Taliban and al-Qaida targets.  Light ‘em up.
  85. 2022 Tuesday: I would love to sit down with “Lyin’ Liz” Cheney, the soon-to-be ex-representative from Wyoming and tell this incredibly stupid bi**h that the more she and her cronies go after President Donald J. Trump, the stronger they make him and his movement.  I know Democrats who want to see Joe Biden relegated to the dumpster fire of history and President Trump and pro-America politicians and bureaucrats returned to the White House and government.  Sadly, when people are as ignorant as are “Lyin’ Liz” and Adam “Kiss Ass” Kinzinger, they cannot see the path before them, only the one behind them, the one they cannot interpretate properly.  We, the American people are tired of these lying scumbags and will go to the ends of the Earth to get every single one of them out of office beginning with “Lyin’ Liz.”  You can count on it.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0903 a 20” x 24” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Sand, Verbenas, and Red Rocks.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclees, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from Beach Boys’ wunderkind, Brian Wilson, “Pet Sounds Live,” came out on June 12, 2002.  (Note- we at the AICPENDBLOG.COM occasionally get our dates mixed up, this we have two albums that appear earlier than several of the previous offerings- it is what it is, please oblige us.  Thank you).  This album features the complete “Pet Sounds” album performed in its entirety in Great Britain earlier in the year.  Once again, the sensational composer has a stellar cast of musicians accompanying him and the album from 1966 appears in its glorious entirety in the way Wilson wanted it to appear.   There are 14 tunes here (16 on the Japanese exclusive release later in the year which includes what we would think are the encore tunes) which are startlingly enchanting recreation of a glorious album from an equally glorious time.  We hope you will seek this one out at your favorite haunt for music and consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure; we think you will be glad that you did.  Enjoy.

206. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, JULY 25, 2022

2022 Monday: As the Voice of Occupied Los Angeles, California, a place overrun with illegal aliens, gangbangers, corrupt politicians, and liberal losers, let me ask a pertinent question: could Joe Biden’s feebleness be the result of long-term syphilis? Everyone knows that back in the day, not only did Senator Teddy Kennedy- aka, the “Lion of the Senate”- but so did good buddies, Senators Chris Dodd of Connecticut and Joe Biden. Leave it to some losers like Dr. Jill to push her mentally disabled husband into a position of power that he cannot hope to ever have a grip on. Dr. Jill should be in prison and her husband in the loony bin for old gropers and hair-sniffers.

[i] We began promoting the music of Santana on Tuesday, 28-August-2012 through Tuesday, 23-October-2012.  We hope you will seek the music of this famed man and his band out wherever you can find them.

[ii] Not sure as to when we will get around to doing the music of Uriah Heep but we hope to do it at the same time we promote the music of Hawkwind.  We hope you will remain alert as to the day that we do.

[iii] Not sure as to when we will begin promoting the music of Bob Dylan but one day, we sure heck we do.  Stay tuned.

[iv] We should have promoted the music of Eric Clapton when we did the music of both Cream and the Yardbirds, but we failed to do so.  We hope to do it extremely soon so please remain vigilant for the day we do.  We thank you.

[v] 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.    The “White Album” appeared on Thursday, 24-November-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[vi] The so-called “Lion of the Senate,” Teddy Kennedy, a Democrat, was little more than a sexual deviate and a murderer.

[vii] We hope to promote the music of both the Band and its members sometime in the next 10-15 years.  The presentation would include the solo catalogs of Robbie Robertson, Rick Danko, Levon Helm, Garth Hudson, and Richard Manuel.

[viii] We promoted the music of Iron Butterfly beginning on Saturday, 27-July-2013 through Thursday, 08-August-2013.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your ever-growing collection of rock music.  Nothing one finds today compares with the classic rock of old.  Throw out your Maroon 5 albums and go with the crème de la crème of the 1960s and 1970s.

[ix] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  At the time however, we overlooked presenting the music of the group’s individual members- Mick Fleetwood, Peter Green, Danny Kirwan, Jeremy Spencer, Bob Welch, Lindsay Buckingham, and Stevie Nicks.  We hope to do that at some point in the near future.  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates.  We thank you.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 476,645 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Just when you think Sandy Denny’s ‘well’ is dried up, the record label and the family dives into the deep end and comes to the surface with still more.  “The Notes and the Words: A Collection of Demos and Rarities” came out on May 21, 2012, a four-disc set featuring a vast collection of this legendary vocalist’s repertoire.  There are lost nuggets, newly discovered gems, relics long lost and thought destroyed and holy, moly, there they are.  If you think you have every shred of music by this famed vocalist, think again.  Just like other bands from the psychedelic era in the U.S.- Quicksilver Messenger Service, Jefferson Airplane, the always dependable Grateful Dead, and some of the others- boom, bam, there’s always something else deep within the vaults and that is what you have here.   Currently, Amazon.com is selling it for around $388.15 but what the heck- now that you can track the price, put it on your tracker and follow it until you can get it at the price that works best for you- you will be extremely glad you did.

  63. 2018 Tuesday: The president of Poland- Andrzej Duda- signs a controversial law that outlaws anyone from saying that the country and its people were complicit in the crimes committed on its soil by the Nazis during the Holocaust.  Many try to infer that the Poles aided the Nazis in helping exterminate the Jews.   Meanwhile, the U.S. calls for a ceasefire as Syrian government airstrikes on rebel positions have killed dozens.  Elsewhere, as the Winter Olympic Games approach in South Korea, Vice President Mike Pence says additional sanctions could be coming for North Korea.

Gov. Justin Fairfax- has his own problems.  In more #MeToo allegations, a woman who worked for the lieutenant governor accuses him of rape, of forced sodomy and the like.  What is going on in this once reputable state?  What is up with all these Democrats?  The state’s AG- Mark Herring- says, ‘yup, I wore blackface at a party back in 1980 while in college.’  Folks, the Democrats always accuse their political enemies of being RACISTS yet here are three bigwig Democrats and two of them are racists and one a sexual offender.  You can’t make this stuff up, folks, you simply cannot.
  65. 2020 Thursday: Following a speech by President Trump at the National Prayer Breakfast, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi goes to the microphone banks and gives one of her most incoherent, rambling, ambling speeches yet, attacking the president, condemning the president, and trying to justify tearing up the president’s speech at Tuesday night’s SOTU address.  How this senile crone clings to power is beyond millions of Americans; we expect her to pay the price on Election Day 2020 becoming the first House speaker to lose the position not once but twice, along with her congressional seat.  Later, President Trump thanked his supporters in both House and Senate, as well as his cabinet members, and other assembled VIPS.  The speech was absolutely wonderful and concluded with the president’s determination to help as many Republicans win or keep their seats in November.  Godspeed, Mr. President, Godspeed.  Meanwhile, in China, more and more images come out via social media showing the outbreak of the corona virus to be far worse than what the communist authorities claim.  We think a biological warfare experiment went awry and now the world is going to pay the price for their bumbling.  Thank you, President Xi, thank you.
  66. 2021 Saturday:  One America News reports that thousands of Americans are receiving tax forms for unemployment insurance for which they did not file.  Next, the TSA announces that passengers who refuse to wear facemasks could face fines of up to $1,500 per citation.  Meanwhile, a recent Rasmussen poll says that most Americans do not believe the ‘news media’ is aggressive with Joe Biden as it was with President Donald J.

Trump returns to social media with a post on Gab.
  67. 2021 Saturday A: In New York’s 22nd U.S. House District, the one in which, Republican Claudia Tenney finally won her old seat back, Democrat Anthony Brindisi, the beaten Democrat, is now crying about the Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic software.  IF you agree to taking another LOOK into the 2020 Presidential Election and how it was stolen from one candidate and given to another, perhaps we will take another look at this House race.  Otherwise, STFU.   Elsewhere, Joe Biden has stripped President Donald J. Trump of his security clearance.   Speaking of Joe Biden, he’s bringing back the ‘President’s weekly radio address.’  Let’s look for an earpiece folks so we can know that someone is putting words in his ear.   Finally, the U.S. Supreme Court partially lifts California’s ban on church gatherings.
  68. 2021 Saturday B: Congressman Hakeem Jeffries, D-NY, says that to accept the GOP counter COVID-19 bill is to commit ‘unconditional surrender.’  Elsewhere, the people are Myanmar are out in the streets protesting the coup against their government even with the Internet shut down.  The interesting thing about this is the Biden administration is upset about the coup in Burma but could care less that he won the 2020 Presidential Election via a…coup.  The Democrats, the RINOs, the Chi-Coms, and Canada- among others- conspired to topple President Trump and to then shove the senile usurper into his place.  What the flaming f**k? 
  69. 2021 Saturday C: COVID-19 Daily Update:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 105,461,681 confirmed cases, +238,473, 2,300,891, confirmed deaths, +7,628, and 58,645,012 confirmed recoveries, +144,616.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 27,054,709 confirmed cases, up 78,221 from yesterday’s reporting, 463,090 confirmed deaths, UP 1,837, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- NO more updates on this number thanks to Joe Biden, going on for nearly as long as #46 has been in the White House.  Coincidence?  You be the judge.  NOTE- in the White House 17 DAYS, apparently the U.S. will NO longer report the number of recoveries.  Shame on you, Chi-Com Joe.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 134,662 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, talk is cheap, what are YOU going to do about it?  Maybe you will be a worse murderer than Andrew “Killer” Cuomo is in the Empire State?
  70. 2021 Saturday D: 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: 3,395,385 confirmed cases, 43,647 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,286 confirmed cases (again, Hawaii is no longer reporting their case numbers in more than a week), 416 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 323,334 confirmed cases, 4,526 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the country: Georgia.  Currently, they have 932,912 confirmed cases, 14,858 confirmed deaths, but NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 680,856 confirmed cases, 5,020 confirmed deaths, and 590,822 confirmed recoveries.  For the heck of it, let’s look at one other country: the United Kingdom.  The UK has 3.929,835 confirmed cases, 112,092 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed deaths.  What a load of crap, share the TRUTH! 
  71. 2021 Saturday E: The Biden administration ends another Trump era agreement, this one in which, asylum-seeking illegal aliens were able to be returned back to El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.  Oh, thank you, Joe, for swarming our country with millions more illegal aliens to whom you are going to grant citizenship.  Can the country survive?  Elsewhere, Michigan is the first state revamping the state’s GOP leadership and folks, they are recruiting strong Trump supporters which is good.   Meanwhile, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers wins his third NFL MVP Award making him only the sixth person in NFL history to win three or more such honors.  Congratulations, Aaron.   Finally, the now discredited Lincoln Project continues imploding as yet another phony- in this case, Jennifer Horn- threw in the towel following disclosures about gay sex addict John Weaver.
  72. 2021 Saturday F: Here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3532 with an $18 million jackpot on the line: 04, 16, 32, 35, 45, and Mega 17.  Out of 108,912 winning tickets, the highest winners were two people who had FIVE numbers but no Mega for a prize of $19,457 apiece.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #818 with a $30 million jackpot up for grabs: 01, 16, 48, 49, 65, and Power 08.  Out of 54,318 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $27,839.
  73. 2021 Saturday G: The former 60th U.S. Secretary of State George P. Schultz died at his home in Stanford, California, at age 100 today.  A Republican, he served under President Ronald Reagan / served from July 16, 1982, to January 20, 1989.  Prior to this, he served his nation as its 62nd U.S. Treasury secretary.  In this capacity, he served under President Richard Nixon from June 12, 1972, to May 08, 1974.
  74. 2022 Sunday: You know the drill…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Just when you think Sandy Denny’s ‘well’ is dried up, the record label and the family dives into the deep end and comes to the surface with still more.  “The Notes and the Words: A Collection of Demos and Rarities” came out on May 21, 2012, a four-disc set featuring a vast collection of this legendary vocalist’s repertoire.  There are lost nuggets, newly discovered gems, relics long lost and thought destroyed and holy, moly, there they are.  If you think you have every shred of music by this famed vocalist, think again.  Just like other bands from the psychedelic era in the U.S.- Quicksilver Messenger Service, Jefferson Airplane, the always dependable Grateful Dead, and some of the others- boom, bam, there’s always something else deep within the vaults and that is what you have here.   Currently, Amazon.com is selling it for around $388.15 but what the heck- now that you can track the price, put it on your tracker and follow it until you can get it at the price that works best for you- you will be extremely glad you did.
