  73. 2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is dumping yet another Trump-era rule regarding the border, this one being that the collection of biometric data from illegal aliens along the border will now cease.  Thank you, Secretary Mayorkas.  (Note- and people wonder WHY everyone is buying firearms).  Speaking of Secretary Mayorkas, he lied to reporters earlier when he said that the numbers of illegals trying to cross into the country has gone way down and that the number of illegal alien minors has also decreased.
  74. 2021 Saturday G: Political News I– The U.S. Department of Justice has reaffirmed the war on ghost guns and will keep Joe Biden’s promise to enact sweeping gun reform (meaning gun control laws.  And they wonder as to WHY so many of us are buying guns, ammos, and accessories like flash and sound suppressants).  Next, census data shows that California’s population fell by more than 182,000 people in 2020 as people were fleeing the state in droves.  Speaking of California, now that it is becoming clear NO ONE wants Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom to remain as governor of the Golden State, the lightbulb has finally gone off over the dimwit’s head- he is now trying to do anything to save his job including making threats against all signers of the RECALL PETITION.  F**k you, Governor Newsom.

  77. 2021 Saturday J: Miscellaneous News I– The largest pipeline of gasoline in the United States- the 1,500-mile Colonia Pipeline- was shut down by unknown hackers.  Sounds like environmentalists did this.   Next, in the glorious city of New York, a woman and her three-year-old child were shot.  SHOT.  Elsewhere, Ernest Angley, a ‘controversial televangelist has died at the ripe old age of 99.  Finally, the religion of peace strikes again near a girls school in Kabul, Afghanistan, sending at least 30 people off to meet with Allah sooner than they planned and injuring loads of others.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The fourth album by the Band- “Cahoots”- came out on September 15, 1971 and would see the band beginning to slide a bit from the pinnacle they rapidly had climbed over the preceding years.  The album contained one bona fide hit- “Life is a Carnival”- but would not chart as well as the preceding three.  The band features the same quintet of Rick Danko (bass, vocals, and fiddle), Robbie Robertson (guitars and vocals), Levon Helm (drums, percussion, vocals, mandolins, and tambourines), Richard Manuel (pianos, organs, and vocals), and Garth Hudson (keyboards and saxophones). What we have for you today is the “Stage Fright 50th Anniversary Edition” (where the hell does the time go?), a deluxe version that came out on October 22, 2021.  We hope you will seek it out wherever you shop for the best in music because we love it and know that you will, too, especially with all the add-ons one gets as a bonus to the original tracks.  Enjoy.

  65. 2020 Thursday A: Following a viral video showing Chi-Com sailors aboard their ‘fishing boats’ throwing the body of a dead Indonesian fisherman overboard, the government of Indonesia summons the Chi-Com ambassador to an immediate meeting to discuss the outrageous mistreatment of its citizens serving aboard the Chi-Com ‘fishing fleets’ (which in reality are actually intelligence-gathering operations with foreign fishing crews aboard them to do the ‘fishing’ because fishing is beneath modern-day Chi-Com citizens).   Elsewhere, law enforcement in Brunswick, Georgia, scoops up father and son Gregory and Travis McMichael and charges the two scumbags for chasing down black jogger Ahmaud Arbery on tape beating and then murdering him.  They claimed he was breaking into houses in their area and that they were forced to take matters into their own hands.  These guys are going to fry.

Currently, Joe is shy 183,514 deaths.      
  68. 2021 Friday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,756,393 confirmed cases, 62,220 confirmed deaths, and 2,001,539 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,262,598 confirmed cases, 35,644 confirmed deaths, and 1,836,489 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 33,036 confirmed cases, 486 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 414,899 confirmed cases, 5,620 confirmed deaths, and 202,488 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s recovery numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Puerto Rico, a place  the Democrats want to make our first welfare state: they have 253,302 confirmed cases, 2,355 confirmed deaths, and 112,074 confirmed recoveries.[x]   
  69. 2021 Friday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 838,858 confirmed cases, 6,375 confirmed deaths, and 831,432 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Oman, a relatively peaceful Arab country: 199,344 cases of the virus, 2,083 confirmed deaths and 181,696 confirmed recoveries.[xi]     
  70. 2021 Friday D:  Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,777.76, UP 229.23 points (+0.66%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,752.24, UP 119.39 points (+0.88%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,232.60, UP 30.98 points (+0.74%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $64.82 per barrel, -0.08 (-0.02%).  The price of GOLD is $1,832.00 per troy oz., +0.70 (+0.04%) while the price of SILVER is $27.57 per troy ounce, +0.09 (+0.32%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,256.60 per troy oz, +2.10 (+0.17%) while the price of COPPER is $4.75 per pound, 0.00 (+0.01%).[xii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,926.51 per troy oz, -20.16 (-0.68%).[xiii] The price of RHODIUM is $28,900.00 per troy oz., -400.00 (-1.37%).[xiv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.43 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.90.     In Pound Sterling, one greenback equals 0.72 and in Qatari Rial, a buck equals 3.68 and in Romanian Leu, one dollar equals 4.05 of theirs.[xv]     Elsewhere, in a MASSIVE blow to the Joe Biden regime, the economy added ONLY 266,000 jobs last month while Democrats were deliriously predicting 1,000,000 jobs or more.  Add to that unemployment going from 6.0-percent to 6.1-percent and it would appear that the BOGUS Biden regime ‘infrastructure bill’ is going to face stiffer opposition than expected.[xvi]
  71. 2021 Friday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.086 per gallon, $2.882 in Florida, $3.820 in Hawaii, and $3.509 in Washington state.[xvii]    Let’s look at one other location- Ohio: $2.824.  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- Qatar: $1.923 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,260,030,025,130 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.
  72. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– After much public outcry, San Diego County, California (nod to Chef Pedro) is canceling a plan on establishing a large tent city in which to house massive numbers of illegal aliens.   (Note- it’s time to rekindle Operation Wetback, an operation that began in June 1954 to deport Mexican illegals back to their country en masse, load these people onto box cars, airliners, buses, even freighters, and sending them BACK to whence the f**k they came.  Now).   Next, Cuban-born U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas says that ‘permanent status is possible for the reunited families of illegal aliens the evil Trump regime separated.  Oh, goodie.   Former Rep. Peter King, R-NY 2nd congressional district, says that ‘amnesty and reparations will increase the numbers of illegals seeking to flood our country.’  Amen.
  73. 2021 Friday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– The U.S. Military is open to training troops from other countries (i.e., mercenaries) to assume our places in Afghanistan once we pull out of that horrible country.  Why can’t we just leave?  Although, here is something we have suggested over the years: WHY not create a U.S. Foreign Legion like the French have theirs?  All the military-aged illegal alien males we can train and send oversea to fight all the wars the Military-Industrial-Political Complex wants to fight.  IF the illegals survive 25 years in the ranks, they can become citizens but not their families, friends, neighbors, or anyone else.[xx]  In other news, Chi-Com hegemony in Africa may soon give them a naval base on the Atlantic.  Wow.  Not good.   Add to that a new report that says the Chi-Coms account for 27-percent of ALL greenhouse gases emitted on the planet.
  74. 2021 Friday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– Emma Green, an Atlantic writer, says that ‘progressives are clinging to COVID-19 restrictions and lockdowns despite what the science says’ (and we always thought progressives ‘listened to science, right?) because it empowers them.  It is amazing to think how many liberal Democrats (and occasional RINO) love the power they have deciding who gets to live their lives and who doesn’t.  They are all fascists at heart.[xxi]
  75. 2021 Friday I: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News–  Rep. Chip Roy, R-TX 21st congressional district, is urging the Lone Star State to pass an election integrity law.  In fact, hours after debating, the Texas House of Representatives is advancing a voter integrity bill.  Next the Honest Elections Project says 77-percent of Americans- including 73-percent of black Americans- want voter ID.  So, give it to us and NOT this H.R. 1 and S.R. 1 bulls**t.   In other election news, Maricopa County, Arizona, Democrats WON’T hand over the routers used in the 2020 Elections to the state Senate investigation into election integrity.  What is up with that?   (Note- the Arizona Senate reassured the feds that election audit security is extremely high so DON’T worry).
  76. 2021 Friday J: Joe Biden Regime News I–  Biden regime hacks didn’t truly celebrate the National Day of Prayer but when bumbling old Joe Biden made a remark or two, the so-called ‘devout Catholic’ could not mention the name of God.  WTF?  In other Biden regime news, Republican senators OPPOSE a Biden regime plan with which to grant amnesty to American scientific researchers who didn’t disclose they were in bed with the Chi-Coms or other adversarial nations.  No, these scumbags should be doing time in federal prisons.   Meanwhile, we learn today that the NEXT White House Press Secretary could be a member of the LGBTQIA+ community.  Whoa.  So much for picking people based on qualifications, not what’s between their legs or the sort of sex they like.  Our money’s on a tranny.[xxii]  Finally, a Florida Atlantic University Business and Economics Polling Initiative Poll says that ‘Florida has not warmed up to “Pro-China Joe” Biden as much as Democrats were hoping.  We doubt that state ever will.
  77. 2021 Friday K: Political News I–  Rep. Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district, says ‘the votes are there to strip Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, of her leadership position.  Boot her ass out NOW.  If she becomes a Democrat, big flipping deal.  Next, Governor Brian Kemp, RINO-GA, is signing a bill that will prohibit ALL efforts at defunding the police within their state.  Speaking of the Peach State, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms- once a rising star in the Democratic Party- announced that she won’t be running for a second term…that star has imploded and now is a black hole…[xxiii]
  78. 2021 Friday L: Miscellaneous News I– The U.S. Army is going to allow female personnel to wear ponytails in all uniforms.  Wow.  Big news. Next, the feds have indicted convicted Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin and his three fellow officers who have not yet even gone on trial on civil rights charges.  Wow.  So much for double jeopardy, folks.  How many bites of the apple do the feds plan to take?  Moving on, California reports its first ever population decline as people are fleeing the state like it’s a hooker with facial herpes.   Finally, it now appears that President Donald J. Trump has an iron-fisted grip on the Republican Party.  Good.  IT is his and the America First Crowd’s Party.  Period.  
  79. 2021 Friday M: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the numbers for the Mega-Millions Draw #1657 with a $370 million jackpot on the line: 05, 10. 19, 21, 50, and Mega 10.  Out of 151,903 winning tickets, the highest winners were SIX people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $6,090 apiece.
  80. 2022 Saturday: Stick around and discover the truth along with us…you know it’s going to be good…until BIG BROTHER shuts us down for good…

[i] 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.

[ii] We promoted the music of Big Brother and the Holding Company, beginning on Monday, 18-July-2011 through Tuesday, 26-July-2011.  At the time, we were not farsighted enough to offer the music of Janis Joplin but hope to do so at some point in the near future when we return to promoting the music of American rock bands.

[iii] We promoted the music of the Keef Hartley Band as well as of one of its integral members Miller Anderson on Monday, 02-October-2017 through Saturday, 21-October-2017.  We hope you will check their music out by visiting those posts.

[iv] We definitely look forward to presenting the music of Joe Cocker, the famed British ex-bricklayer who blew the minds of the world at the 1969 Woodstock Music and Arts Festival.  Please stay tuned for further developments.

[v] Martin Windrow’s superb book, “The Last Valley,” Da Capo Press, 2006 is an amazing helpmate for information on this famed battle.  Seek it out.

[vi] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.  This presentation included the Jefferson Starship, too, of which, the artist was NOT a member.

[vii] We offered the music of the legendary Pacific Gas & Electric beginning on Thursday, 12-January-2012 through Sunday, 15-January-2012.  We hope you will seek out the music by this famous, interracial hippie rock band.

[viii] Bing seems to be covering numbers up for the Biden administration so here is where we have gone now: COVID Live Update: 151,025,351 Cases and 3,176,405 Deaths from the Coronavirus – Worldometer (worldometers.info)

[xx] Just imagine, everyone from Dick Cheney to George W. Bush to Lindsey Graham and all the rest of the Neocons can fight wars all over the place.  Imagine the corporate profits from corporate wars?  How amazing would that be?

[xxi] Personally- and this is me, Chef Murph talking- if I owned the French Laundry and that little closet queen Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom had come to my restaurant to dine, after what he’s done to the hospitality and foodservice industries in the Golden State, we might have had a slip up in the mushrooms we served him and his party.  Oops, like fucking up the blowfish at the sashimi bar…

[xxii] Speaking of trannys, a Swedish hospital system is prohibiting hormone blockers for children under age 18.  Good.  About time someone began doing this.

[xxiii] Speaking astronomically of course so don’t even go there…

  62. 2019 Monday: Surprisingly, Brunei Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah- after ‘global condemnation’- lifts the death penalty for gay sex and for adulterers.  (But you still can’t do it…or else).  Elsewhere, following President Donald J. Trump’s suggestion that he may impose billions of dollars of new tariffs on Chi-Com-made goods, the communist Chinese stock market topple by 5-percent by midday.  What to do, what to do?  (Note- the Chi-Coms must stop screwing us…)
  63. 2020 Wednesday: Word comes out today that Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York is going to hit every out-of-state medical professional who answered his call to come help the Empire State through its (self-imposed) COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis with state income taxes.  Currently, there are 3,755,341 confirmed cases of Kung Flu worldwide, 263,831 confirmed deaths, and 1,245,415 confirmed recoveries.  Thank you, communist China.  In the United States, we have 1,259,604 confirmed cases of the Wuhan Flu, 74,577 confirmed deaths, and 170,859 confirmed recoveries.  In California, we have 59,698 confirmed cases and 2,439 confirmed deaths but no mention of recoveries.  In Hawaii, we have 626 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 588 confirmed recoveries while in Washington state, there are 15,905 confirmed cases and 870 confirmed deaths but like California, no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Curious.  Meanwhile, communist China claims 88,423 confirmed cases of the Wuhan Flu, 4,633 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  Got to love their honesty (joke).
  64. 2020 Wednesday A: Long-time vocalist with the British rock band Bad Company[vi] (following the departure of original vocalist Paul Rodgers) Brian Howe died at age 66 in Lake Placid, Florida.  He served as the band’s vocalist from 1986 to 1993 and kept the band’s success alive.   Meanwhile, Venezuela announces that it is going to try the so-called ‘mercenaries’ captured a few days earlier by its armed forces in the nation’s civil courts, including the two supposed American ringleaders.  U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the U.S. will do ‘everything in its power to return U.S. citizens to the United States.’

  66. 2021 Thursday A: Note: since Joe Biden became president on JANUARY 20, 2021, there have been 279,095 CHI-VI deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, in another 219.83 days, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 184,438 deaths.      
  67. 2021 Thursday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,753,201 confirmed cases, 62,158 confirmed deaths, and 2,000,253 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,258,433 confirmed cases, 35,559 confirmed deaths, and 1,831,455 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 32,922 confirmed cases, 486 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 413,222 confirmed cases, 5,609 confirmed deaths, and 201,532 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s recovery numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Vermont, a place  that has two horrible senators- Bernie Sanders and Patrick Leahy should they become a flipping state: they have 23,296 confirmed cases, 249 confirmed deaths, but 21,007 confirmed recoveries as they won’t mention them.[ix]   
  68. 2021 Thursday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 838,828 confirmed cases, 6,374 confirmed deaths, and 831,331 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Bosnia and Hercegovina, a once communist country (well, part of a country) but now is free: 200,353 cases of the virus, 8,762 confirmed deaths and 163,445 confirmed recoveries.[x]

  70. 2021 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.074 per gallon, $2.881 in Florida, $3.815 in Hawaii, and $3.502 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- New York: $2.978.  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- Ethiopia: $1.917 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,255,825,311,282 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  71. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, is suing the Biden regime over its refusal to deport criminal illegal aliens.  Excellent. Next, citizens living in border states in a recent poll show that people of ALL political parties believe that Joe Biden’s immigration policies (or lack thereof) are responsible for driving cases of the ‘VID as well as increasing human trafficking and the deaths of thousands.  We must secure our borders.
  72. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden Regime News I– The International Energy Agency- the IEA- has warned that Joe Biden’s policies are allowing the Chi-Coms to obtain greater control of dwindling rare mineral resources across the globe.   Meanwhile, Dr. Jill is meeting with military spouses during a stop in the Rocky Mountain State.  Next, the FAA is hitting unruly, mask-less passengers with massive fines.   In other Biden regime news, growing numbers of people are asking WHY the United States Postal Service now is SPYING on Americans’ social media posts?  Where the hell does the USPS get authority to do this?  Twilight Zone, folks, welcome to the modern-day Joe Biden regime police state.[xviii]   Finally, U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona says, ‘kids will be back in school full-time by September.’
  73. 2021 Thursday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– House GOP leaders send a letter to Centers for Disease Control- CDC- demanding answers as to ties between teachers’ unions and the CDC.  The educators unions seem to hold a great deal of power over what the CDC says, allows, and does.  Next, Moderna is testing a COVID-19 booster shot which the pharmaceutical company shows promise in combatting the various variants.   Speaking of the vaccines, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich says that the ‘Chi-Coms will be thrilled’ if the patents are stripped from BIG PHARMA’S vaccines as the communists will get their hands on them.[xix]  Elsewhere, Israel announces they believe they may have developed a drug that may cure COVID-19.  Thank God Joe Biden has no right to hand this information over to the Chi-Coms.
  74. 2021 Thursday I: Foreign News / Overseas News– Xi Jinping has self-bestowed another title atop his shoulders, “Helmsman.”  The last person to ‘wear this moniker’ was the late Mao Zedong.   What further proof does one need to understand this thug wants to be a global dictator?   Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Tony Blinken says that the U.S. will ‘stand with Ukraine against Russia.’  Boy, oh, boy.  In other fascinating news, former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says that ‘Russian involvement, if not influence or interference in Brexit.’  Uh, okay.
  75. 2021 Thursday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– One America News obtained a letter from the Department of Justice to the state of Arizona attempting to STOP the 2020 Election audit currently going on within that state right now.  U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland swears the audit ‘could intimidate voters?’  WTF?  That is crazy, how is seeking to verify the election as free of corruption and fraud intimidating to voters unless of course, the timid voters actively participated in the fraud?   Speaking of election fraud, legislators in Wisconsin are proposing their own version of an election reform bill.  Meanwhile, Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, signed into law the strongest election integrity bill in the United States.  God bless you, governor.
  76. 2021 Thursday K: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– The upcoming new Superman movie will feature a black actor playing the man of steel.  Awesome.  Will the next Black Panther be a white actor? 
  77. 2021 Thursday L: National Security News– well-known household name Honeywell has been fined for sharing U.S. Department of Defense data with foreign countries.  The fine is a mere $13 million so it would seem as though the Biden regime wants Honeywell to continue funneling national security information to the, uh, Chi-Coms.  Really? 
  78. 2021 Thursday M: Big Tech News– Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, is officially introducing his “Bust Up Big Tech Act,” aka BUBTA, an act with which to clean the clocks of social media titans and search engine leftist losers.  We have been personally assaulted by both social media and BIG TECH and would love to see both destroyed and their individual parts plastered around the world.   In other pathetic BIG TECH NEWS, even though there is NO direct connection between ‘From the Desk of President Donald J. Trump’ and Twitter, Jack Dorsey has closed the account.  WTF?   Speaking of Twitter, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, blasts Twitter for temporarily suspending one of her aides for no particular reason.   Moving on, a member of the Facebook ‘Oversight Board’ says that the referral on President Donald J. Trump was ‘lazy.’  An overseer at Facebook says the social media site should be less politically loaded (because we hope you guys are going to get broken up…for good).
  79. 2021 Thursday N: Political News I– The state of South Carolina adds the firing squad to its list of execution methods which also include the electric chair and lethal injection.  However, seeing as how namby-pamby suppliers of drugs for lethal injection many times will not sell the necessary items to states using them to carry out capital punishment.  Next Donald Trump Jr. says the Dems ‘want his father silenced because they know he resonates with the American people.’  Meanwhile, Senator Chuck Grassley, R-IA, is upping pressure to get to the bottom of Climate Czar John F. “Lurch” Kerry’s numerous Logan Act violations.  We want to know, too, why this POS is able to collude with an ENEMY who hates our country, and no one does anything about it? 
  80. 2021 Thursday O: Political News II– Former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, DS, is colluding with a far-left Swiss billionaire so he can get funds to screw up gerrymandering efforts in states where changes in proportional representation and loss or gain of new House sets is occurring or is set to occur.   In other news, Rep. Steve Scalise, R-LA 1st congressional district, says of colleague, Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, is focused way too much on the past and not on the present and future.  We hope she is out next week.   NO MORE RINOS.  In other hilarious news, Governor Gretchen “Gravel Gertie” Whitmer, DS-MI, is set to receive a ‘profiles in courage award’ or some such dreck for her ‘handling of the pandemic in Michigan.’  What a joke.  This dingbat should be in prison.  In other news, Caitlyn Jenner- in response to critics going after her now that she is seeking Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom’s seat- says, “I move on.”  There you go.  
  81. 2021 Thursday P: Political News III–  A bar owner in California was busted for selling fake Chi-Vi vaccine documentation to people seeking them.  Next, Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DSPUSA-MN 5th congressional district says, ‘it’s time to grow a backbone and end the filibuster.’  F— you.   Next, New York’s Sheldon Silver, former Democratic speaker of the state assembly, has been ordered to return to federal prison.  Elsewhere, TenCent is negotiating with U.S. authorities to keep its investment in the U.S.  Meanwhile, the FBI says they have close to 500 (440) arrests in the BIG FALSE FLAG OPERATION the Democrats and their storm-troopers of Antifa and Black Lives Matter ran on January 06, 2021, at the U.S. Capitol.  Yes, there were Trump supporters there but it’s clear to anyone with political knowledge that most of the people were left-wing infiltrators who nearly pulled off a coup of sorts but eventually failed.  The only ones rotting in the D.C. hoosegow are Trumpers while the Antifa and BLM thugs have all been sprung and in the wind.
  82. 2022 Friday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album released by the Band was the self-titled, “The Band.”  Released on September 22, 1969, this album known as the “Brown Album” due to its album cover, was an even bigger hit their freshman debut.  Like their first album, it produced some powerful hits such as “Up on Cripple Creek” and “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down.”  Once again, the band featured Rick Danko (bass, vocals, and fiddle), Robbie Robertson (guitars and vocals), Levon Helm (drums, percussion, vocals, mandolins, and tambourines), Richard Manuel (pianos, organs, and vocals), and Garth Hudson (keyboards and saxophones).  What we have for you today is the “The Band 50th Anniversary Edition” (where the hell does the time go?), a deluxe version that came out on September 27, 2019.  This is a wonderful album, one we anticipate everyone will want to own because in this day and age of bullshit music, there is nothing more refreshing than a blast from the past such as the one we are promoting here.  Please seek it out and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure.

125. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, MAY 05, 2022

1954 Wednesday: At Dien Bien Phu, French troops fighting at Claudine 5 are shocked to see a platoon of Moroccan soldiers cut their way through the wire and cross over to surrender to the enemy. The People’s Army immediately launched attacks on this site which cost the French Foreign Legionnaires at least seven men. Once the attack was repulsed through superior force of arms, the remaining Moroccan troops were stripped of their weapons and propelled to join other deserters clustering around the Nam Youm River.

  25. 1920 Wednesday: Democratic President Woodrow Wilson outlaws the Communist Labor Party in the U.S.  Thank God, he did something right.  A century later, the Democratic Party has become the ‘Communist Labor Party.’  He must be rolling over in his grave.

  32. 1945 Saturday: The Allies liberate Mauthausen Concentration Camp.  Meanwhile, in the only fatal attack of its kind during World War II, a Japanese balloon bomb exploded on Gearhart Mountain in Oregon, killing the pregnant wife of a minister and five children.  Elsewhere, as the German surrender began to go into effect, the Allies liberated Denmark and the Netherlands.

  52. 2012 Saturday: The moon forms a super moon as it gets the closest to the earth for the year.  Meanwhile, five terrorists held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, including 9-11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammad appear before a military tribunal.  More than a decade later, these same POS will still be there awaiting trial.  WTF?
  53. 2013 Sunday: The world’s first plastic gun, produced by a 3-D printer by Defense Distributed, test-fires successfully in Austin, Texas; this leads security officials to voice fear that plastic weapons would not be detected at airport screenings, leading to acts of terrorism.   Elsewhere, former U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords, seriously wounded in a 2011 shooting at a Tucson, Arizona, shopping mall, received the 2013 Profile in Courage award at the John F.

  57. 2017 Friday: Effective at midnight, an agreement reached by Russia, Turkey, and Iran will establish a ‘safe zone’ in northern Syria through which NO military aircraft will navigate, including American warplanes.  The ‘safe zone’ will also prohibit military action on the ground.   The United Nations is ecstatic that some semblance of civilization will be restored although Syrian military opposition and jihadists such as ISIS refuse to acknowledge or accept.
  58. 2018 Saturday: NASA launched the Mars In Sight lander from California on a flight of more than six months to the red planet, where the robot geologist would dig deeper into the Martian surface than ever before.  Elsewhere, Palestinians are up to no good once again as a large blast erupts near the town of Deir al-Balah blows at least six Palestinians to kingdom come while injuring numerous others.  Hamas thugs point the jihadist finger at the Israelis who point theirs right back.  Sounds like a case of bomb-making gone bad.  Sad.
  59. 2019 Sunday: Due to Palestinian intransigence and transgression over the past several days, four Israeli and 23 Palestinian citizens lie dead and countless others injured.   Meanwhile, at Sheremetyevo Airport in Moscow, at least 41 die and numerous others are injured as a Russian Aeroflot airliner comes back and makes an emergency landing.   Elsewhere, Juan Guido, president of the nation’s National Assembly, says he is considering a request with which to get the U.S. to invade the country and topple the communist POS dictator Nicolas “Bus Driver” Maduro.
  60. 2020 Tuesday: After the U.S. Supreme Court begins it session hearing arguments from a distance, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg goes to the hospital for what sounds to be an issue with gall or kidney stones.  Politics aside, we wish her a full recovery and a swift return to work.  This woman is amazing, she has survived numerous health crises in her life and always comes back strong.  God bless you.  Meanwhile, following yesterday’s charging of those involved in a plot to topple Venezuelan thug dictator Nicolas Maduro, President Donald J. Trump denies any involvement in the so-called ‘attempted coup.’

Gavin Newsom won’t provide confirmed recoveries.  In Hawaii, confirmed cases are 625, confirmed deaths are 17 and confirmed recoveries are 551.  Finally, in Washington state, confirmed cases are 15,557 and confirmed deaths are 862.  No information on confirmed recoveries so Gov. Jay Inslee is behaving just like Gov. Newsom.  Shame on them.  Question: WHY won’t Democrat-controlled states present recovery statistics?  Finally, communist China’s statistics, the place where this curse began remains the same: confirmed cases: 88,423; confirmed deaths: 4,633; and confirmed recoveries: 81,785 same as they were a week ago.  Shame.
  62. 2021 Wednesday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 155,802,002 confirmed cases, +823,116, 3,254,757  confirmed deaths, +14,035, and 133,945,619 confirmed recoveries, +90,024.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,315,190 confirmed cases, UP 40,075 from yesterday’s reporting, 593,097 confirmed deaths, UP 691,[viii] and 26,014,813 confirmed recoveries, UP 53,527.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ix]

Currently, Joe is shy 185,277 deaths.    The AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says the Pfizer vaccine for teens should be approved by next week.

  65. 2021 Wednesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 838,767 confirmed cases, 6,370 confirmed deaths, and 831,218 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Venezuela, a place human fecal matter such as Antifa and Black Lives Matter emulate: 201,807 cases of the virus, 2,208 confirmed deaths and 184,161 confirmed recoveries.[xi]

  67. 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- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.057 per gallon, $2.871 in Florida, $3.807 in Hawaii, and $3.495 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Nevada: $3.513.  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- Ecuador: $1.910 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,251,982,318,772 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.
  68. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Rep. Bill Johnson, R-OH 6th congressional district, told Newsmax TV that the Dems are paying a ransom to Northern Triangle countries to keep their illegal aliens in their country.   Next, Tony Shaffer, president of the London Center for Policy Research and former President Donald J. Trump 2020 national security adviser says that socialism and the drug wars are driving people to flee Central America and come to the U.S.   Here’s a laugh- the Vermont state senate has passed a bill that will permit ILLEGAL ALIENS the right to vote in their state.  Wow.  Yet, they don’t want Americans to believe in the REPLACEMENT THEORY…
  69. 2021 Wednesday G: Biden Regime News I– Apparently, Joe Biden is eyeing clemencies early on in his career.  We are curious as to whom these people might be.    Next, the Biden regime is seeking a ‘special master’ to look into the seized electronic devices taken from Rudy Giuliani and Victoria Toensing.   Next, Joe Biden says he is ‘open’ to compromise on his corporate tax hike.  We’ll see.  Moving on, the White House is considering subsidies for nuclear power plants to help them meet climate targets.  Speaking of ‘climate warriors,’ Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (CPUSA-NY 14th congressional district), aka “The Fly,” aka “Baby Evita,” aka Sandy Cortez and Senator Ed Markey, CPUSA-MA, are pushing a $10 billion, 1.5-million-strong (of little Marxists) Civilian Climate Corps because the planet has a fever.  F**k these people.
  70. 2021 Wednesday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– We learn today that thanks to the Chi-Vi, 20 million more Americans (many of them probably illegal aliens) were beset by food crises last year which means Joe Biden will be giving taxpayer dollars to illegals.  Can’t have them go hungry now, can we?   Elsewhere, the founder of BioNTech prophesizes that the Chi-Vi pandemic will continue until sometime in mid-2022, a date we are sure the Democrats hope will extend to the 2022 Mid-Term Elections so they can try to steal those elections, too.   In other COVID-19 news, over half of the people in the world’s democracies feel that governments repressed freedoms and liberties.  Meanwhile, Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, blasts the FAKE NEWS MEDIA for labeling the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in the Mount Rushmore State in the summer a ‘super-spreader event.’  That’s the FAKE NEWS MEDIA, always causing trouble via disinformation and misinformation.  F**k them.  Finally, the U.S. Patent Office- at the direction of Joe Biden- is considering waiving patent rights on the vaccines to fight the Chi-Vi so everyone can jump into mass-producing this crap.   (Interesting tidbit- a U.S. federal court has overturned the moratorium on evictions.  Good.  Someone has to help landlords).
  71. 2021 Wednesday I: Social Media News And Big Tech News– Facebook votes to keep President Donald J. Trump banned but orders another ‘review’ down the road.   Once this news came out, President Trump blasted Facebook, Twitter, and Google as a ‘total disgrace’ (which they truly are).  Meanwhile, we learn that Iowa officials coordinated with BIG TECH to censor all posts related to the 2020 Presidential Election- so says Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch.
  72. 2021 Wednesday J: Political News I– Each day that passes, it appears more and more likely that Rep. Liz Cheney[xix], RINO-WY, is going to be toast as more and more Republicans are turning on the RINOs plaguing the GOP.[xx]  We hope she is out ASAP.  Meanwhile, Jared Kushner forms the Abraham Accord Institute with which to continue pushing for peace around the world.   Next, the POS head of the Democratic Party in Lamar County, Texas, who called Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, an “Oreo,” offered his resignation earlier in the day but then Democrats in his county would not accept it.  Gary O’Connor is such a loveable guy; his fellow Dems don’t want to see the scumbag go.  Well, we do.   
  73. 2021 Wednesday K: Foreign News / Overseas News I– the president of El Salvador has taken over the country’s supreme court (look for Joe Biden to do something similar in the U.S.).  Elsewhere, violence breaks out in Columbia over the government raising taxes on its people.  The protesters, stupidly enough, are demanding socialism.   Next, those good-humored mullahs in Iran released a truly hilarious video in which it showed their military forces blowing up the U.S. Capitol Building.  Good.  We should blow their seat of government off the flipping map.  Now.  Elsewhere, former U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates security assistance to Afghanistan be continued even as U.S. forces pull out of that hellish country.  Yes.  We must.  Otherwise, we will be fighting them here in the streets of the U.S.  Hell, they are already here coming across the southern border.  Thank you, Joe, thank you.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is in London meeting with the G7 leaders.
  74. 2021 Wednesday L: Miscellaneous News I– After a report of one child’s death and numerous injuries, Peloton is recalling its treadmills.  Next, following the resignation of a top attorney, Coca-Cola pauses its controversial diversity plan.  Ah, the pause that refreshes.   Meanwhile, the state of Texas stops a Chi-Com energy company from purchasing Lone Star State land next to a military base.  Wow.  Thank you.   Elsewhere, LeBron “King of Fecal Matter” James apologizes for having started the wrong conversation about the police officer who was forced by the actions of Ma’ Khia Bryant to take her life before she stabbed another girl to death.  (Note- LeBron is little more than a BIG IDIOT over-amped on steroids and social media-likes.  Dumb ass).  Speaking of Black Lives Matter, a New Jersey police officer was fired for calling BLM ‘terrorists.’  They are TERRORISTS.  We have no problem calling spades ‘spades.’
  75. 2021 Wednesday M: Miscellaneous News II– Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Gov, aka the Gropin’ Gov, says that ‘Broadway will be open 100-percent by September.’  Uh, okay, trying to save your job, are we?  Next, Atlanta is ordered by the courts to reinstate a police officer they terminated who shot and killed Rayshard Brooks last year.  If you recall, Mr. Brooks was cooperating with cops after falling asleep in a drive-through lane at a fast-food restaurant and then began to fight.  Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms made sure Officer Garrett Rolfe was canned so she could maintain her bona fides with the BLM movement.  Glad to see you back, officer.  Moving on, a new law being considered could upend the firearms industry.   Laugh of the day, some POS New York City gunman got himself arrested after police read his social media posts.  Next, Sid Miller, Agriculture commissioner for Texas says that IF farmers are being discriminated against by Joe Biden, join our class action lawsuit.  Finally, Governor Ron DeSantis signs a new budget that will bestow $1,000 bonuses on law enforcement officers and first-responders.

[i] Cinco De Mayo commemorates the victory of Mexican rebels over the French Foreign Legion, troops fighting for Emperor Maximillian.  In modern times, restaurants and bars have given it new life so they can increase alcohol and food sales.  Police departments across the land make mass arrests of drunken drivers, thus increasing local municipality coffers.

[ii] We promoted the music of Hot Tuna beginning on Tuesday, 24-April-2012 through Thursday, 23-May-2012.

[iii] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane, the Jefferson Starship, Starship, and of the various bands’ members beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.  Please look for them and enjoy.

[iv] See previous footnote.

[v] The music of this famed British band, Family as well as the spin-off group, Streetwalkers, appeared on Tuesday, 08-October-2013 through Thursday, 31-October-2013.  Sadly, at the time, we failed to promote the music of both Axis Point as well as Roger Chapman’s solo catalog so we hope to correct those mistakes sometime within the next five years.

[vi] We hope to offer the music of Black Sabbath sometime in the next decade.

  64. 2020 Monday: Well, it keeps getting better: we now know we have “Murder Hornets” in the Pacific Northwest.  Although some claim Japan is their homeland, experts now tell us it is communist China where these monstrous insects call home.  Coincidence?  You are the judge.  COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis update: confirmed cases around the world: 3,582,469, confirmed deaths are 251,365, but confirmed recoveries are 1,162,563 so things are looking better.  As for the United States, confirmed cases are 1,201,101, confirmed deaths are 69,579, and confirmed recoveries are 159,789.  In Hawaii, we have 621 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths but 548 confirmed recoveries.  Yet, in the Islands, we live under the authoritarianism of Governor David Ige.  Colleagues in California report 55,657 confirmed cases, 2,254 confirmed deaths and NO- we repeat- NO numbers for confirmed recoveries.  What are you hiding, Gov.

  66. 2021 Tuesday A: NOTE: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 277,565 Chi-Vi deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, in another 240.56 days, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 185,968 deaths.

  68. 2021 Tuesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 838,697 confirmed cases, 6,369 confirmed deaths, and 831,090 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Uruguay, a place that was once home to Nazis: 204,120 cases of the virus, 2,796 confirmed deaths and 176,783 confirmed recoveries.[x]

  71. 2021 Tuesday F: Foreign News / Overseas News– U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is visiting the Ukraine today.[xviii]   Next, Iran confirms the authenticity of tape where Climate Czar John F. “Lurch” Kerry[xix] commits various Logan Act violations by sharing with the Iranians at least, we repeat- at least– 200 separate incidences of the Mossad carrying out surreptitious activities against Iranian interests in the hellhole of Syria.  In other news related to overseas activities, former Acting U.S. Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller- part of the Trump administration- is urging the Biden administration NOT to let its guard down regarding the use of directed-energy weapons on U.S. personnel worldwide.  He calls it ‘an act of war’ and suggests that even if it’s ‘nonlethal,’ we owe it to our people to investigate so as to be better protected in the future.
  72. 2021 Tuesday G: Covid-19 Updates And Additional Information– First, early information is suggesting that the COVID-19-caused pandemic shutdowns of cities may be in the preliminary stages of reversal.  Next, Pfizer seeks full clearance from the Food and Drug Administration for the use of its Chi-Vi vaccine for everyone.  Elsewhere, U.S. states are not ordering their full allotments of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu over a lessening demand for the questionable inoculations.
  73. 2021 Tuesday H: Joe Biden Regime News I–   We learn today that thanks to Joe Biden being president (well, “Kooky Kamala” Harris is ‘president’), the death tax is going to rise to 40-61-percent meaning their family’s tragedy will also see financial rape of the grieving survivors.  Wow.  Thank you, President Obama, uh, we mean, “El Presidente Joe Biden.”   Meanwhile, Cuban-born U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, DS, says the regime is moving ahead with reuniting illegal alien families torn asunder by the Trump administration.   Elsewhere, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark A. Milley is dropping his opposition to changes in sexual assault policies.  Wow.  Sell-out.
  74. 2021 Tuesday I: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says he is considering a slick budgetary maneuver whereby he can legalize tens of millions of illegal aliens lurking within the shadows of our country.  Gee whiz, thank you, Chuckie, thank you.
  75. 2021 Tuesday J: Political News I– the House GOP is calling for an oversight hearing on the Capitol Hill Police Department and their actions on FALSE FLAG OPERATION DAY on January 06, 2021.  Next, GOP lawmakers seek a probe of Amazon’s Jedi contract.   Elsewhere, the GOP is adding an additional 10 Democrat-held congressional seats deemed to be vulnerable in 2022.  (Note- get rid of YOUR RINO problem, too, Republicans).  Moving on, UNC Chapel Hill has bestowed a professorship on the clown that created the 1619 ‘Project,’ (a bullshit propaganda project with which to wail and cry and to point fingers at the evil whiteys)[xx].  In other news, former Governor Charlie Crist, RINO-FL-turned Democrat Congressman, 13th congressional district, is making another run for the gubernatorial mansion.  Loser.  Finally, Eric Trump says there is NO way that fuddled old Joe Biden can hold a candle to his father’s energy on the job.
  76. 2021 Tuesday K: Political News II– We learned today that Newsmax settled a lawsuit from Dominion Voting Systems out of Canada, that they apologized and agreed to stop questioning the 2020 Presidential Election’s veracity.  One America News, however, won’t back down for which, we congratulate them.  However, if Canada WON’T use Dominion Voting Systems nor Smartmatic Software in their own elections, what does that say about their trustworthiness and honesty?  Not very much.  Speaking of the untrustworthy, it now appears that Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, will be out as GOP Conference Chair by the end of the month.  This woman and the other corrupt Republicans that leapt onto the President Donald J. Trump impeachment vote as showing their virtue ALL must lose their seats.  Period.  She needs to join the Democrats of which she truly is one…finally, the Justice Department has been ordered to release the memo cited by then-U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr as to why there was no charge of obstruction launched against President Donald J. Trump when feeble old Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III concluded his ginned-up, bogus investigation into the 45th president.
  77. 2021 Tuesday L: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– The attorney for convicted murderer and former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin has filed for a new trial now that we learn the jurors were going to convict him on ALL counts no matter what which is not justice but a kangaroo court.  The judge in the case pointed out that thanks to people like that dingbat from California, Rep. Maxine “Prune Face” Waters, DS-CA 43rd congressional district, going there and rabble rousing the lynch mob outside the courthouse every day, that her actions put the entire outcome of the trial in jeopardy.  We expect to see Chauvin win a new trial, be acquitted, and get his old job back.  Boo-yeah!
  78. 2021 Tuesday M: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– stick around for the results on tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1656 with a pot of $345 million available to some lucky winner…here are the results: 04, 27, 32, 57, 63, and Mega 22.  Out of 136,836 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $947,704.

[ii] We began promoting the music of the Troggs on Monday, 06-January-2020 through Tuesday, 04-February-2020.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection as they are astounding.

[iii] We promoted the music of It’s a Beautiful Day beginning on Thursday, 25-August-2011 through Monday, 29-August-2011 and a second round on Tuesday, 04-February-2014 through Wednesday, 05-February-2014.  Please seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[xviii] This schmo also warned the Chi-Coms it would be a mistake to attack Taiwan.  What is the U.S. going to do to stop it, Secretary Blinken?  Launch a nuclear barrage on the Chi-Coms?  I doubt it.  (Note- living in Israel allows me to view the world differently and I think there is no way the U.S.- without President Donald J. Trump in the White House– can do to stop such an attack.  I fear it would be over before it began- Mo).

[xix] Speaking of ‘climate,’ a NYU physicist says that ‘humans have NOT broken the climate.’

[xx] Nikole Hannah-Jones cannot handle any criticism of her bogus ‘history.’  Why is it we cannot continue the work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.?  Why do we have to continue finding ways of tearing the country apart?  Here is why: for some, it’s profitable.  Look at ‘Reverend’ Al Sharpton, look at ‘Reverend’ Jesse Jackson, look at that POS lawyer Benjamin Crump, these scalawags and scoundrels reap lots of wealth tearing the fabric of the nation asunder.  Going to be time to move to Russia or Chi-Com land…at least they defend their countries.

  61. 2012 Thursday: Communist Chinese dissident Chen Guangcheng telephones the U.S. Congress begging for help in extricating himself and his family from the hands of the Chi-Com thugs in Beijing.   Meanwhile, in the Mexican state of Veracruz, pedestrians come upon four headless bodies, two of whom are later identified as being those of missing journalists.  One must love Mexico (like hell!).
  62. 2013 Friday: Caterpillar, a heavy construction equipment manufacturer, announces plans to lay off 300 additional employees at its Decatur, Illinois facility by July 2013.  Meanwhile, the Syrians and their Iranian backers think they are doing things on the sly in Syria but overnight, Israeli warplanes come in and blow a munitions plant and dump sky-high.  Allah Akbar you motherf***ers!

Clippers owner, suffers lifetime banishment after reports of his racist comments; the NBA announces that it will choose a brand-new CEO and other team owners are encouraged to pressure Sterling into selling; many parties have already expressed interest.
  64. 2015 Sunday: According to Brainy History, aid workers announce that they cannot get aid to people suffering from the recent Nepal earthquake due to runway damage at the country’s main airport in Kathmandu, requiring airport closure to large jets; the death toll from the disaster has risen to over 7,000.  Meanwhile, Dr. Ben Carson says he expects to make an announcement in Detroit, Michigan, in which he will declare his candidacy for the 2016 GOP Presidential Nomination.
  65. 2016 Tuesday: Texas Senator Ted Cruz, Republican, suspends his campaign for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination on this date.  Elsewhere, in Hungary, the government announces that it’s going to hold a referendum later in the year over Muslim refugee resettlement.  Like other Eastern European member states of the EU- they have seen their share of Muslims throughout history and are saying, “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.”  The government suspects the voters will approve the referendum and stop resettlement plans coming from Berlin.
  66. 2017 Wednesday: A NATO convoy navigating the streets of Kabul, Afghanistan, are attacked by suicide bombers.  In the ensuing blast and aftermath, eight civilians are blown to bits while another 28 suffer injuries in varying degrees.  Elsewhere, the government of Puerto Rico files for the largest government bankruptcy in U.S. history on this date.
  67. 2018 Thursday: On this date, the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences votes to expel two perverts, Bill Cosby, and Roman Polanski.  Meanwhile, Vice President Mike Pence postponed his upcoming visit to Brazil so increased effort could be put into the upcoming summit between President Donald J. Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un.  Elsewhere, President Trump signs an executive order giving greater freedoms to faith-based initiatives which the Obama-Biden administration did everything to crush.
  68. 2019 Friday: The California state senate passes a bill that is highly unconstitutional, one that would prevent President Donald J. Trump from appearing on either the primary or the November ballot (should he win the nomination) unless he hands his tax records over for scrutiny by his enemies.  This BS bill would not stand. 
  69. 2020 Sunday: Today, global confirmed cases of ‘communist China’s gift to the world,’ COVID-19, aka the Kung Flu, stand at 3,506,729; confirmed deaths stand at 247,470, and recovered cases stand at 1,125,236.  In the United States, confirmed cases are 1,183,633; confirmed deaths rest at 68,276; and confirmed recoveries are 153,204.  Cases in China?  Not going to share them because they never change; such is communism.  Anyhow, President Donald J. Trump does a digital town hall from the Lincoln Memorial with Fox News Channel.  Of course, his Democrat enemies blast him for ‘doing it there.’  “Anywhere else other than the Lincoln Memorial” is what they cry and whine but anywhere Trump would have done it would have met the exact same criticisms.

  76. 2021 Monday F: Foreign News / Overseas News– A new report says that Xi Jinping- dictator of the People’s Republic of (Communist) China and possible overlord of the world- has been planning on taking control of the Internet since 2017.  Only President Donald J. Trump stood in his way and look at what happened to the 45th president.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, we also learn today that Hunter Biden still maintains a stake in a Chi-Com equity firm.   Also, regarding the Chi-Coms, the United Kingdom announces it’s going to step up the fight against Chi-Com intelligence-gathering operations around the world.  In other news regarding the communist Chinese, as if we don’t have issues with the thugs in Beijing already, it appears that the out-of-control rocket they launched into the atmosphere as part of their space program could come down somewhere in the United States.  That’s the Chi-Coms for you.  Finally, in other foreign/overseas news, Hillary Rodham Clinton says that the ‘Afghan troop pullout will bolster the Taliban and other terrorists.’
  77. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– The Biden regime plans on reuniting illegal alien families that have been separated while in custody.  Awesome, Joe, simply awesome.  We say, ‘reunite them in their home countries.’  Meanwhile, people are blasting “Kooky Kamala” Harris over her being given new responsibilities but still cannot find time to visit the U.S.-Mexico border.  WTF?
  78. 2021 Monday H: Joe Biden Regime News I– Senator John Kennedy, R-LA, says there’s NOTHING free in the Biden regime’s infrastructure plan.  Amen.  Regarding the ‘infrastructure bill,’ Senator Elizabeth Warren, DS-MA, supports the idea of a ‘Democrat-backed infrastructure bill without any Republicans.’   Meanwhile, the Biden regime is raising the annual quota on refugee resettlement from 15,000 under President Donald J. Trump to 62,500.  WTF!  Speaking of the 45th president, he says that the ‘2020 Presidential Election will forever be remembered as the “BIG LIE,” which it most definitely was.
  79. 2021 Monday I: Political News I– A POS Democrat in Lamar County, Texas, Gary O’Connor- chair of the county’s Democratic Party- is facing a barrage of calls demanding his resignation after he referred to Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, as an “Oreo.”  This is a vile form of slander but when it comes from Democrats, seldom do they get in trouble.  This punk needs to go NOW.   Speaking of the Lone Star State, many see the GOP wins as signs of what awaits the Republican Party in 2022.   Speaking of the BIG Texas wins, President Donald J. Trump says that the Dems, NOT the RINOs, are giving him credit for what happened in Texas.  Speaking of RINOs, GOP pundits expect that Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, will be out of the party’s leadership by the end of the month.
  80. 2021 Monday J: Political News II–  In Florida, some RINO Republicans are expressing fear over the new voting law designed to halt corruption and fraud.  They fear it could backfire on them, the terrified, trembling milquetoasts.  Oh, boohoo.  Stop sniveling, RINOs.  Next, people are outraged over the new WOKE CIA recruiting video.  Are we hiring the best or are we hiring pansies with weak minds?  How embarrassing.  Next, former Rep. Peter King, R-NY 2nd congressional district, says the ‘voters are fed-up’ with Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Gov, aka the Gropin’ Gov.  In other shocking news, we now learn that Climate Czar John F. Kerry was making BIG BUCKS from fossil fuel investments prior to becoming the ‘climate czar,’ at which time he offloaded them.  What a loser.
  81. 2021 Monday K: Political News III– The U.S. Supreme Court won’t take a Maryland case regarding bump stocks.   Speaking of SCOTUS, Justice Clarence Thomas backs a former West Point cadet’s right to sue the academy over an alleged rape.   Elsewhere, Minnesota state Attorney General Keith Ellison says he is in favor of trying BAD COPS at the International Criminal Court in the Hague.  Meanwhile, it would appear that John McCain’s widow Cindy, is on the side against the Arizona 2020 Presidential Election audit which puts her up against state GOP leader Dr. Kelli Ward.  (Note- someone should suggest to Cindy she become a Democrat.  Enough is enough).
  82. 2021 Monday L: Miscellaneous News I– In Chicago over the past weekend, 7 people were shot dead while another 46 were wounded.  Nary a peep in protest to the ongoing mass shootings in the Windy City.   Speaking of guns, the FBI says gun sales are UP for the 16th straight month as people are rushing out to buy guns in advance of all the leftwing riotous thugs roaming the streets.  Good.  We sure the hell are buying guns.  Elsewhere, the judge deciding the NRA bankruptcy case will have a ruling sometime next week.
  83. 2021 Monday M: Miscellaneous News II– Racing champion Bobby Unser, an Indy 500 winner,   and a member of racing family elite, died at the age of 89.  Next, after 27 years of wedded bliss, Bill and Melinda Gates are throwing in the towel.   Elsewhere, the New Jersey Pine Mountain Golf Club has granted full access to women.  Wow.  Kind of late.  Moving on, an appeals court is going to decide a California law regarding trannys participating in scholastic sports.   Next, Intel is going to invest $3.5 billion in a chip-manufacturing plant in New Mexico.  Finally, scientists are breeding sea stars with which to repopulate and rebab the world’s warming oceans.  They are doing this in laboratories.  Uh, okay.
  84. 2022 Tuesday:  Let’s see what is occurring today.  Shall we?

  57. 2005 Monday: About 50 miles north of Kabul, Afghanistan, something goes awry at a munitions dump.  The place blows up killing dozens of people with no full accounting of how many took a one-way trip to meet with Allah or how many others were left devastated one way or another.  Wow.

  63. 2011 Monday: As the news continues to spread about whacking Osama bin Laden, tens of thousands of people gather at Ground Zero in New York City as well as in other places around the country to celebrate the death of this terrorist POS.  The world also learns that in accordance with Islamic law, U.S. military authorities buried him via a sea burial in the Indian Ocean so that a burial site on land would not become a terrorist shrine.  The Allies did the same thing with the Nazis executed at Nuremburg.  They were cremated and went into a river.
  64. 2012 Wednesday: 2012 U.S. presidential candidate Newt Gingrich suspends his campaign for the Republican nomination.   Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton arrives in Beijing for high-level talks with her opposites as well as find ways to line her and her hubby Bill’s pockets with Chi-Com cash.  While on site, she meets with blind Chinese dissident Chen Guangcheng.

  68. 2016 Monday: The ‘religion of peace’ is on the move yet again, this time in Baghdad, Iraq, where three separate bombings claim the lives of at least 14 poor souls including a number of Shiite pilgrims while the Syrian Army takes up positions around its prison in the city of Hama where violent prisoners have overthrown the prison staff and are holding them as hostages.  What will President Bashar al-Assad do?  We think he’ll employ poison gas inside the prison killing all of them (and the guards).   
  69. 2016 Monday A: Elsewhere, the Catholic Church in the Philippines urges its followers to reject Roderigo Duterte who seems to be little more than a whack job.  Down in Venezuela, El Presidente Nicolas Maduro orders clocks in his nation to be moved forward by half-an-hour since the country is facing a major electricity shortage and that somehow moving the clocks up by 30 minutes will alleviate the suffering of the people.  YOU know what will alleviate their suffering?  Your fat neck dangling from a noose in the center of Caracas.  POS communist.
  70. 2017 Tuesday: Still angry from yesterday’s provocative overflight of the Korean Peninsula by two U.S. B-1B heavy bombers, Kim Jong Un warns the world that due to President Donald J.

  71. 2018 Wednesday: Disaster befalls romaine lettuce in Yuma, Arizona, as a massive e. coli outbreak sickens at least 121 people across 25 states killing one in the process.  Grocery stores around the country put out immediate recalls and stop-sales on all romaine lettuces, fresh and packaged, coming out of the region.   Elsewhere, as a show of good faith, ahead of the summit between President Donald J. Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, the North Koreans release the last three American detainees they have been keeping as a potential future trump card.
  72. 2019 Thursday: Iowa passes one of the strictest abortion bans saying ‘can’t happen’ after the detection of a fetal heartbeat.  Good for them.   Elsewhere, Senator Michael Bennet, D-CO, says he is in the running for the 2020 presidential nomination of his party.  No one cares.  Meanwhile, Facebook and Instagram ban several big names from its site for spreading violence and hate.  Among the folks bumped off the sites are Alex Jones, the Reverend Louis Farrakhan, David Duke, Milo Yiannopoulos, and several others.  We shall see.
  73. 2020 Saturday: After California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom orders ONLY the beaches of Orange County closed, the sheriff of the county says, ‘he will not enforce the order.’  Meanwhile, on the COVID-19- Wuhan Flu front- confirmed global cases are 3,424,254; confirmed deaths sit at 243,674; and confirmed recoveries are 1,092,715.  In the United States, the Kung Flu Virus Crisis- given us by the communist Chinese- is thus: confirmed cases sit at 1,157,782, confirmed deaths at 67,046, and confirmed recoveries are 150,934.  Meanwhile, the communist Chinese claim the following numbers (let’s see if they have changed): confirmed cases: 88,423; confirmed deaths: 4,633; and confirmed recoveries: 81,785!  Which is almost the same as one week ago, lying scumbags.  Around the United States, more states continue reopening and no upticks in the Coronavirus Crisis are seen so to all authoritarian governors out there, you better lighten up.  (It is interesting to note that Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer is still whining about ‘Confederate and swastika flags being seen at protests but every piece of film we have looked at, those flags are nowhere to behold.  ANTIFA- do your job, go to Michigan, and protest this b***h).

  79. 2021 Sunday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.040 per gallon, $2.780 in Florida, $3.790 in Hawaii, and $3.471 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- New Hampshire: $2.766.  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 seventh lowest gasoline price in the world- Nigeria: $1.591 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,240,289,802,772 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.  In other business news, Berkshire-Hathaway bigwig Warren Buffet is celebrating 1st quarter earnings in 2021 of $11.7 billion.  He also is warning investors NOT to gamble on stocks.   Meanwhile, in other economic news that will trash the U.S. economy, Joe Biden is QUIETLY preparing a massive increase in Food Stamps, even higher than the one his former (well, could still be the current) boss, Barack Hussein Obama had and without going via the U.S. Congress.  Yet another unilateral move that will see millions of dollars going to illegal aliens.
  80. 2021 Sunday F: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– The Roman Catholic Archbishop of Kansas City, Missouri- 71-year-old Joseph Naumann told Newsmax TV that ‘it’s wrong for Joe Biden to use his Catholic ‘faith’ because it misguides Catholic listeners.’  Look, WE believe (and I’m a Jew- Mo) that the Roman Catholic Church should excommunicate Joe Biden and other scurrilous, reprobate Catholics such as House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, the decrepit nonagenarian because she like he are big PROPONENTS of the Pro-Death Movement and NOT because they believe women have a right to control their own bodies but because they make money off it via campaign contributions.
  81. 2021 Sunday G: Political News I– Like Senator Mitt Romney, RINO-UT, Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, is having a challenging time within her party for being the neo-lib that she is by going against President Donald J. Trump.  She is expected to be removed from GOP leadership by June at the latest.   Next former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-NV, says that ‘Lockheed-Martin possesses UFO wreckage. This is getting better all the time.   We are looking forward to the upcoming UFO report next month- if the feds actually release it.  Elsewhere, the runoff for the U.S. House seat in Texas 6th congressional district is between two Republicans: Susan Wright (19.2%), backed by President Donald J. Trump and Jake Ellzey (13.8%), which has the Democrats sobbing gobs of tears as they genuinely thought they were going to propel third-place runner-up Jana Lynne Sanchez (13.4%) into the House to help a beleaguered “Mumbles” Pelosi.  
  82. 2021 Sunday H: Political News II– Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, continues sharing his views on Afghanistan and says we must withdraw from the country NOW.  We concur wholeheartedly and think we should have been out of there before President George W. Bush left office (and should never have gone into Iraq).  Since going to that forlorn country, Senator Paul says we have blown $825 billion to 1 trillion building roads and schools, protecting women, and doing other non-war-fighting jobs at great cost to our country in resources and human lives.  (Note- I said yesterday that the Democrats and Neocons are seeking a “Gulf of Tonkin Incident” so they can keep forces in that s—hole country in perpetuity and to continue reaping the wealth from the Military-Industrial-Political Complex- Mo).
  83. 2021 Sunday I: Political News III– The family of the late Ashli Babbitt is suing the Capitol Hill Police Department for her murder on January 06, 2021.  We still don’t know who fired the fatal shot (but we are learning more about the officer by the day.  We believe her killing was preordained that the House speaker- in control of the Capitol Hill Police Department- wanted to make sure someone lost their life in this FALSE FLAG OPERATION)- Mo).   Elsewhere, the U.S. State Department has announced that there is “NO TRUTH” regarding a prisoner swap with the Iranians.   Meanwhile, Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, says he remains hopeful on police reform occurring in the U.S. Senate.  Finally, Senator John Barrasso, R-WY, says of Joe Biden’s $2.1 trillion infrastructure bill that it’s ‘like someone with a new credit card.’   Finally, famed economic adviser Larry Kudlow says Joe Biden’s BIG GOVERNMENT PUSH is destabilizing and bad for the United States.’
  84. 2021 Sunday J: Foreign News / Overseas News– Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger is warning of a “U.S.-communist China Armageddon.”  Amen, Mr. Secretary, amen.   Next, Kim Jong Un warns the U.S. of GRAVE CONSEQUENCES over Joe Biden’s mumbling, stumbling speech the other day on the 99th day of his regime before a Joint Session of the U.S. Congress.   Elsewhere, British Prime Minister Boris “BoJo” Johnson is being forced to answer for his personal spending.  Oooh, BoJo could be going down.  Meanwhile, riotous soccer fans stormed Manchester United’s field over the U.S.-based owners proposing the ‘Super Soccer League’ that would feature only elite teams and would be a power grab by wealthy billionaires.   Finally, a Cuban dissident’s hunger strike is challenging the communist regime. 
  85. 2021 Sunday K: Miscellaneous News I– Yesterday, the Empire State Building celebrated its 90th birthday.  Next, SpaceX’s Dragon Capsule returned four astronauts back from the International Space Station in the first nighttime landing in the Gulf of Mexico since the Apollo missions.  Elsewhere, “Kooky Kamala” Harris has another job (not that she shows up for any of them): she is now going to be the head of the National Space Council.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Formed in the late 1950s as the Hawks, the group that would come to be known as the Band evolved in 1967.  Featuring four Canadians and one American, the band erupted onto the stage with their first album, “Music from the Big Pink,” (July 01, 1968).  In some ways, the band was a throwback in that having performed with Bob Dylan for a lengthy time, they combined elements of acoustic folks with rock and roll with the music of the prairies, the back-hills, and other American-Canadian forms in an extremely alluring package of sound.  The band features Rick Danko (bass, vocals, and fiddle), Robbie Robertson (guitars and vocals), Levon Helm (drums, percussion, vocals, mandolins, and tambourines), Richard Manuel (pianos, organs, and vocals), and Garth Hudson (keyboards and saxophones).  Their first album touched the souls of many and put them on a path to stardom, one that would take them to Woodstock in 1969 and beyond.  One of the big hits was “The Weight.”  What we have here is the 50th anniversary edition of this celebrated album, “Music from Big Pink 50th Anniversary Edition,” a beefed-up effort featuring all manner of additional gems for your listening pleasure.  The album came out on January 01, 2018.  We hope you will seek this album out and consider adding it to your growing collection of nothing but the absolute best in rock music.  You will be glad you did, of that, we guarantee.

  46. 2014 Friday: One day after closing the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, Israeli authorities reopen it but apply restrictions to Muslim men seeking to pray at the site.  The reason for the crackdown on the Muslims is that some terrorists murdered Israeli activist Yehuda Glick.    Meanwhile, commercial space tourism suffered a setback when a prototype rocket, Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo blew up during a test flight, scattering debris over the Mojave Desert and killing one pilot while injuring the other.

  49. 2017 Tuesday: In New York City, a terrorist POS named Sayfullo Saipov drove a truck into a crowd of pedestrians enjoying a bike path along the Hudson River.  He murdered 8 and wounded 11.  Once the truck stopped, he jumped out screaming “Allah Akbar!” before a cop shot him in the gut.  In Game 6 of the 2017 World Series, the Los Angeles Dodgers recover from a Game 5 loss of 13-12 by beating the Houston Astros to tie the series at three games apiece.  Both starters found themselves knocked out of the game, Dodger pitcher Rich Hill leaving after 4-2/3 innings and Astros pitcher Jason Verlander leaving after six.        
  50. 2018 Wednesday: After she spent eight years on the nation’s death row, the Pakistani high court acquits a Christian woman who supposedly blasphemed the Prophet Muhmmad.  It took a great deal of public outrage around the world to get the Pakistanis to go easy on her, but we believe she had to flee the country lest violent Islamist mobs mete out ‘Islamic justice’ to her.
  51. 2019 Thursday: In a blow to its prestige, the Democrat-controlled U.S. House of Representatives under the control of senile Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi votes to launch formal impeachment charges against President Donald J. Trump over the phone call he had earlier in the year with new Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in which, he asked him to complete the investigation that “Pro-China Joe” Biden had managed to get squelched investigating his son, Hunter, and Burisma, a corrupt energy money-laundering operation.  A year later, these actions would come back to bite the Democrats on their asses.   Elsewhere, the remnants of ISIS, on the run around the world, choose a new loser to be their next leader after Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was killed in a U.S. Special Forces strike- Abu Ibrahim al-Hashemi al-Qurashi, another POS not long for this world…
  52. 2020 Saturday: First, the world has suffered a great loss: actor Sean Connery, 90, died in his sleep after battling a prolonged illness.   Queen Elizabeth knighted him in 2000 for his contributions to film industry.  Next, the DEA has taken charge of a second Hunter Biden laptop; this cannot be good either for him or for his father’s campaign.  Oh, wait!  Much of the news media is not covering this explosive topic, labeling it ‘Russian disinformation.’  Gee whiz.  Meanwhile, Ivanka Trump raises $13 million for her father’s re-election campaign.  President Trump is crisscrossing the nation holding rally after rally after rally while his opponent, “Pro-China Joe” Biden continues trying to avoid doing many public appearance.  When he does show up, he sounds like the ‘greatest hits album’ of Democratic Party demagogues, babbling on about LABOR, how if you make under $400 thousand per year, you won’t pay higher taxes (yeah, right) but that corporations sure the heck will’ which is bogus because corporations pass tax increases on to you, the customer.
  53. 2020 Saturday A: North Carolina Speaker of the House Tim Moore says he fears post-election violence is going to break out across the Tarheel State.  He fears all manner of corruption is going to occur as ballots in North Carolina have UP TO NINE DAYS post-election to come in and be counted.  What?  Meanwhile Baseball legend Bobby Richardson says to Newsmax TV that “Trump has to win.”  Also making comments to Newsmax TV is Chris Carr who tells the network that ‘Republicans are voting in person.’  Also, to Newsmax TV, Jenna Ellis says post-Election Day, we could see “17 Bush v. Gore-style contested elections” meaning that some states are trying to FIX the elections by making them as big a messes as possible which is not good.    
  54. 2020 Saturday B: Attorney-General Bill Barr informs a friend who informs the news media that he would ‘like to stay on in a second Trump administration.’  Elsewhere, Democratic Party vice-presidential nominee Kamala Harris is the target of more online disinformation (BIG TECH is attempting to erase the fact that she was banging Willie Brown of California’s Assembly to get every political post she has ever achieved in California) that either current Vice President Mike Pence or the 2016 VP nominee for Hillary Clinton, nobody Virginia Senator Tim Kain.  Meanwhile, the U.S. State Department announces that the hellhole nation of Iran is targeting various state elections systems in trying to sow confusion, anger, and other disinformation.  F**k them.  Time to send some neutron bombs in the direction of Tehran.
  55. 2020 Saturday C: In a recent speech in Iowa, “Pro-China Joe” Biden begins hammering ‘trillionaires’ although no one in the world has yet qualified as one.’  You go, Joe, you go, tax them trillionaires out of existence.  Meanwhile, nuns supporting President Trump have become victims of far-left Democrats who are doxing them and spreading not only their information online but slanderous lies and bull crap.  (Note- to POTUS: when the election is over, beef up the penalties for crimes such as these).   Elsewhere, a federal appeals court rules that BOTH Texas voters and election workers do not have to wear masks at polling places.
  56. 2020 Saturday D: Folks, let us present to you the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox, communist China’s gift to the world and a boon for Democrats who want to exercise their fascist skills in locking down people’s lives:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 45,866,380 confirmed cases, +594,756, 1,192,684, confirmed deaths, +8,823, and 29,800,442 confirmed recoveries, -783,160 (NUMBER WAS HIGHER YESTERDAY).  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 9,194,616 confirmed cases, UP 69,714 from yesterday’s reporting, 233,716 confirmed deaths, UP 650, and 5,947,293 confirmed recoveries, UP 548,856 (There is some monkeying around with the numbers right now…could it be the Election?)  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: 932,646 confirmed cases, 18,447 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 15,145 confirmed cases, 216 confirmed deaths, and 11,682 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 111,893 confirmed cases, 2,468 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Florida- currently, they have 802,547 confirmed cases, 16,969 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Ron DeSantis for behaving like your typical Democratic politician- thank you.  Let’s look at Israel’s stats now that Mo is living there: 314,367 confirmed cases, 2,523 confirmed deaths, and 201,158 confirmed recoveries (there was some readjustment in the final number).

  69. 2021 Sunday K: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE I- Folks, as much as we find it depressing to report you this squalid news, we feel we must as it is important that the American people know the stats.  Today is Day No. 219 for the internationally famous ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the southern border holocaust and ongoing debacle and Day No. 126 since the gibbering jackal has shown up to do her job.  Horrible.  We would love to be able to read future history books on her ‘amazing’ (being sarcastic, you know) time as the so-called ‘vice president.’  Here are today’s stats as shown by One America News, perhaps the most patriotic of ALL cable news stations.  First, here is the cost for this day alone of caring for the mercenaries being sent here by Chi-Com thug, Xi Jinping: $554,604,414.  Next, here is the cost for the entire year of caring for the invading vermin: $332,609,454,080.  Third, here is the number of KNOWN illegals to have crossed the border this year: 3,408,940.  Fourth and final, here is the conservative low estimate of illegals currently trashing our country: 37,408,980.  (Note- since the inception of this blog back in 2009, we said the number back then was 35-to-50 million whereas now, we believe it’s closer to 75-100 million.)  (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).
  70. 2021 Sunday L:  Friends, this was where we were at one year ago today: Election Day is NEXT Tuesday so please stick around to discover- along with us- what the Chi-Coms and their stooges in the Democratic Party are up to today.  Everyone knows that the Dems, the Chi-Coms, the Iranians, Russia, and every other s-hole country in the world is working overtime to take down President Donald J. Trump and to destroy as many Republicans as possible.  We cannot permit this to happen.  Fight with us by rejoining us here later in the day…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Fairport Convention regrouped and with an altered lineup yet again was back in work.  Today’s album, “The Bonny Bunch of Roses,” came out on July 14, 1977.  Simon Nichol (guitars, vocals, dulcimers, and piano) was back as a full-time member along with Dave Swarbrick (fiddle, viola, mandolins, and vocals), Dave Pegg (bass, mandolins, guitars, and vocals), and Bruce Rowland (drums, percussion, and piano).  This album took the group back to doing a repertoire of British folk music combined with light rock and fans of the band found themselves enthralled by the song collection.  We hope you will seek this album out wherever you shop for the absolute best in rock music and pick it up.  Back in the day at the Google edition of this blog- one that was around for a decade before that POS Sundar Pichai banned us from view, we used to sell loads of music via links to Amazon, too.  Seems that Amazon also banned us but not we them.  Check this album out and enjoy- you will be glad you did.

2021 Saturday O: Oh- did you hear? President Donald J. Trump and First Lady Melania Trump joined the crowd in doing the celebrated tomahawk chop. The crowd ate it up while online news sources say the president joined in the demeaning, racist arm motion. Can we just have fun and enjoy the game, you frigging liberals? Enough already.

  57. 2014 Thursday: Iraqi troops find a mass grave with 150 corpses of Sunni tribesmen who fought back against the ISIS garbage.  Meanwhile, Kurdish forces approach Kobani as they continue fighting against the jihadist scum threatening the peace of the region.  Meanwhile, Syrian government air forces kill at least 200 civilians on the ground which leads U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel to suggest that Coalition airstrikes may have the adverse reaction of aiding the Syrian government rather than the Syrians opposed to the Assad regime.
  58. 2015 Friday: The Obama administration announces it will send U.S. ground troops to fight ISIS in Syria.  Had the administration kept troops in Iraq instead of pulling them out posthaste and leaving all our military equipment there, ISIS would indeed have been the “JV team” that Obama labeled it as.
  59. 2016 Sunday: FBI Director James “The Saint” Comey[viii] reopens the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s ‘missing emails’ approximately one week out from Election Day.  Everyone is curious as to why this corrupt POS would do such a thing, especially the Clinton campaign.   Elsewhere, Saudi-led coalition aircraft attack Houthi rebels in Yemen killing at least 60 of the scumbags.  Keep killing them.  Meanwhile, in Game 5 of the World Series, the Chicago Cubs beat the Cleveland Indians by a score of 3-2.     
  60. 2017 Monday: After former Trump associates Paul Manafort and Rick Gates surrender to the FBI, Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III, aka the Boy Scout, announces his first indictments in the Trump-Russia Collusion investigation.  (In 2020, following a failed impeachment, the world would learn that the entire thing was a sham and that the Democrats were running a coup).  Elsewhere, on Capitol Hill, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and U.S. Secretary of Defense James “Mad Dog” Mattis tell lawmakers they believe the Trump administration has the right to wage war on ANYONE around the globe suspected of terrorism.  Sounds like these two goobers are seeking avenues by which, they can wage endless wars, something against which, President Trump fought.
  61. 2018 Tuesday: President Donald J. Trump says he is looking at ways of ending ‘birthright citizenship’ in the U.S. where ANYONE born in the country- regardless of citizenship or immigration status (meaning ILLEGAL ALIENS) automatically become U.S. citizens.  Friends, this should have happened decades ago as we have a national industry by which illegals cross our borders and foal their calves.  This must stop NOW.
  62. 2019 Wednesday: Across the state of California, massive wildfires continue burning down vast stretches of the state.  Flames are threatening the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library as fire crews struggle to contain them.  More than 30,000 people have had to flee their homes.  Liberals screech about “CLIMATE CHANGE!  GLOBAL WARMING!  EXTREME WEATHER!  WE ONLY HAVE 2-3 YEARS BEFORE THE PLANET DIES.”  Yet, north of Washington state and south of California into Mexico, NO fires blaze away.  Conservatives say, “Let’s do proper forest management and water conservation.”  Plain and simple.  Elsewhere, in a decisive Game 7 of the 2019 World Series, the Washington Nationals beat the Houston Astros 6-2 in Houston, winning their first championship and also becoming the first team to win four road games.  They lost all three at home in Washington, D.C.   The Willie Mays Most Valuable Player Award goes to pitcher Stephen Strasburg for his two winning performances but especially his Game 6 performance pitching into the 8th inning.   Meanwhile, on Capitol Hill, 50 youthful climate change activists (alarmists) stage a sit-in at House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s office.  Stop wasting your time, kids, the speaker cares nothing about you.  
  63. 2020 Friday: Former Green Bay Packers quarterback and Super Bowl champion Brett Favre endorses President Donald J. Trump.  Elsewhere, we learn that 25 legislators are pressuring Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to pack the U.S. Supreme Court as soon as the Dems regain control of the U.S. Senate which they anticipate doing soon.  Moving on, Hostess Twinkie Don Lemon on CNN calls Trump supporters ‘drug addicts,’ that he has to cut many people lose and until they hit rock bottom and ask for help, he wants nothing to do with them.  Wow.  Business Insider reports that legions of journalists are donating to Democratic candidates, something media organizations used to discourage but nowadays, seemingly promote.
  64. 2020 Friday A: White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany says that Wall Street donations to “Pro-China Joe” Biden are ‘befuddling.’  Biden plans on taxing Wall Street banks out of existence with the appointment of Sen. Liz Warren, D-Massachusetts, to Treasury secretary.  That woman wants to dish out a whole lotta payback.  Elsewhere, in Minnesota, a federal appeals court upends the state’s plan on extending mail-in voting and registration times.  Down in Florida, early voting sites close down due to spikes in COVID-19 cases.  Meanwhile, the “Baby Evita,” AOC, aka Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (real name: Sandy Cortez), a day after appearing on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine in a $14,000 wardrobe ensemble that drove some Republicans to point out the hypocrisy exhibited by the socialist skank leads her to say to them, “Drink some water and don’t be a racist.”  Uh, okay.  We hope you lose on Tuesday. 
  65. 2020 Friday B: President Donald J. Trump is stumping the campaign trail holding 14 rallies in 3 days.  Meanwhile, decrepit old “Pro-China Joe” Biden is going to states that should be locks for him because they are leaning towards Trump.  Going to be a hot and heavy finish.  Meanwhile, RNC chairperson Ronna McDaniel says Republicans are winning the early voting turnout as GOPPERS are flocking to the polls expecting riots, assaults, and even homicide on Election Day in many parts of the country.
  66. 2020 Friday C: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 45,466,721 confirmed cases, +561,201, 1,186,913, confirmed deaths, +7,702, and 30,583,602 confirmed recoveries, +380,131.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 9,129,855 confirmed cases, up 86,485 from yesterday’s reporting, 233,117 confirmed deaths, UP 923, and 5,531,311 confirmed recoveries, UP 16,728.  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: 928,240 confirmed cases, 17,581 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 15,046 confirmed cases, 216 confirmed deaths, and 11,682 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 110,777 confirmed cases, 2,463 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 308,840 confirmed cases, 2,329 confirmed deaths, and 290,130 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other state: Texas- currently, they have 941,851 confirmed cases, 18,373 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries- por que?
  67. 2020 Friday D: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 26,501.60, DOWN 157.51 points (-0.59%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  10,911.59, DOWN 274.00 points (-2.45%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,269.96, DOWN 40.15 points (-1.21%).  Price of GOLD: $1,878.80 per troy oz., -1.10 (-0.06%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $23.72 per troy oz., +0.069 (+0.29%).  Price of PLATINUM: $847.00 per troy oz., -1.40 (-0.17%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,217.20 per troy oz., +18.70 (+0.85%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.05 per #, +0.003 (+0.10%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $35.72, -0.07 (-0.20%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.69 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.86 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.73 Afghan afghani.
  68. 2020 Friday E: A Connecticut judge says that Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel, a nephew of Robert F. Kennedy’s widow, Ethel, will not face another trial after spending years in prison for the murder of Martha Moxley, decades ago.  Controversy has forever swirled around this case as many believe that since he is a relative of the legendary Kennedy Family, that he was unfairly targeted for the murder of the 15-year-old Moxley at one of the family’s seaside residences back in 1975.  Some suspect that the so-called “Lion of the Senate”- Senator Teddy Kennedy- might have had a hand in it and Skakel paid the price.  The prosecutor says the case cannot be proven beyond the shadow of a doubt and so Skakel will emerge a free man after 45 years in the slammer.  Good for you. 
  69. 2020 Friday F: Tens of thousands of members of the so-called ‘religion of peace’ are protesting in streets across North Africa, the Middle East, and Asia protesting France’s crackdown on Muslim extremists following the murders of three women- one beheaded- in the Basilica of Notre Dame in Nice.  France through stupid policies that have allowed in armies of people who will never become ‘French’ has led to them going berserk whenever they perceive someone has criticized their backward faith.  Look, undergo a flipping reformation already and join the modern world.  Congratulations, France, for doing what must be done.
  70. 2020 Friday G: Texas voters have cast more than 9 million early votes which is more than the entirety of the votes cast in the Lone Star State back in 2016.  The Democrats are doing everything possible to flip Texas from RED to BLUE using any means necessary.  Meanwhile, Sen. Elizabeth Warren wants the U.S. Treasury secretary’s gig when “Pro-China Joe” Biden wins on November 3, while crackpot Senator Bernie Sanders wants to be the Labor secretary.  Failed loser Beto O’Rourke wants to be the ‘gun-grabber czar’ while Congresswoman Sandy Cortez wants to be the head of the Climate Change Bureau so she can take away the rights of the American people.   Speaking of the upper crust, Lori Loughlin, best-known for the old show, “Full House,” reported to a federal prison near Dublin, California, to begin her two-month stint for having bribed their daughters into USC.  When she’s out, hubby Mosimmo Giannulli, will report to the federal pen to do his five-month stint.  Poor bastard paid half-a-million bucks to get their daughters into the University of Southern California by having them pose as FAKE ROWERS.  Wow. 
  71. 2020 Friday H: Here are the numbers for the Mega Millions #1603 with a jackpot of $118 million on the line: 14, 19, 34, 39, 59 and Mega 11.  The highest winner was one person who had four numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $16,660.
  72. 2021 Saturday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 247,130,550 confirmed cases, +367,116, 5,010,463 confirmed deaths, +6,094 and 223,860,613 confirmed recoveries, +331,300. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 46,799,970 confirmed cases, UP 27,991 from yesterday’s reporting, 766,117 confirmed deaths, UP +395,[ix] and 36,692,254 confirmed recoveries, UP 45,364. We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[x]   
  73. 2021 Saturday A: JOE BIDEN TO DONALD J. TRUMP COVID-19 DEATHS- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 451,671 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 rampaging 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 him.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump with 47,953 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths.      
  74. 2021 Saturday B: COVID-19 STATISTICS in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 4,797,718 confirmed cases, 72,185 confirmed deaths, and 2,549,277 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 3,695,945 confirmed cases, 59,497 confirmed deaths (down), and 3,254,025 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 84,143 confirmed cases, 906 confirmed deaths, and 83,237 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 728,350 confirmed cases, 8,691 confirmed deaths, and 309,268 confirmed recoveries (same numbers- this state shuts down on the weekends).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Wyoming: they have 102,926 confirmed cases, 1,174 confirmed deaths, and 98,622 confirmed recoveries.[xi]   
  75. 2021 Saturday C: FOREIGN COVID STATS OF THE DAY- Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 1,327,126 confirmed cases, 8,085 confirmed deaths, and 1,310,440 confirmed recoveries (somewhat the same numbers).   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Morocco, 38th country on the list: 945,460 cases of the virus, 14,667 confirmed death and 926,293 confirmed recoveries.[xii]     
  76. 2021 Saturday D: FRIDAY’S STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,819.56, UP 89.08 points (+0.25%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 15,498.39 UP +50.27 points (+0.33%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,605.38, UP 8.96 points (+0.19%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $83.22 per barrel, +0.41 (+0.50%).  The price of GOLD is $1,785.00 per troy oz., -17.60 (-0.98%) while the price of SILVER is $23.97 per troy ounce, -0.16 (-0.64%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,021.80 per troy oz, -2.10 (-0.21%) while the price of COPPER is $4.37 per pound, -0.06 (-1.45%).[xiii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,002.31 per troy oz., +13.56 (+0.68%).

  77. 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 $4.598 per gallon, $3.311 in Florida, $4.316 in Hawaii, and $3.877 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States (back to the top): Alaska: $3.721.  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 27th LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Kyrgyzstan: $2.763 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,932,011,965,278 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging 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 Norway the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Thailand with $80,000,000 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.
  78. 2021 Saturday F: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE I- The ‘Border Czar,’ the slow-witted “Kooky Kamala” Harris has held the position for 219 days and to add insult to injury, her last trip to the border was 126 days ago.  Imagine that.  The Chi-Coms are funding one caravan of illegal aliens after another, and this reprobate woman won’t go down there and stop the invasion.  The question is, will we be able to halt the stampede before the Democrats can replace the American people with their legions of illegals?  Okay, here are the numbers for today thanks to OAN.  First, here is the cost for just this day: $564,117,312.  Incredible.  Next, here is the cost for the year so far of caring for the invaders: $331,523,129,344.  Frightening.  Third, is the number of illegals known to have swamped the border just this year: 3,397,846.  Finally, this is the conservative low estimate of illegals roaming the country as we speak: 37,397,844.   (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).
  79. 2021 Saturday G: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE II- As the massive, ever-growing caravan of illegal aliens continues bulldozing north through Mexico towards the U.S.-Mexico border, the Mexican government is offering the invaders humanitarian visas that will permit the Third World’s castoffs to remain in their country, tap into benefits, and get work permits.  So far, NO takers.  (Note- the Mexican military needs to begin mowing these people down.  Who would criticize them?)
  80. 2021 Saturday H: COVID-19 LOCKDOWNS-RESTRICTIONS-AND AUTHORITARIANISM NEWS- As Americans continue resisting COVID-19 vaccine mandates, American Airlines was forced to cancel more than 1,000 weekend flights over employees not coming to work because of the mandate.  Meanwhile, in New York City as the mayoral election occurs next Tuesday, fully 26,000 NYC workers still have not undergone vaccination.  (Note- the only reason there is this ongoing push for everyone from age 5 to their death bed to get jabbed with this experimental crap is because everyone on the production end and every politician pushing it is raking in the big bucks just as left-wing politicians are raking in money from Planned Parenthood.  It is as simple as that).
  81. 2021 Saturday I: JOE BIDEN NEWS I- In what some are claiming to be a ‘victory for Joe Biden,’ G20 leaders agree on a 15-percent global tax.  While we believe this to be a corporate tax, for all we know, these scumbags could mean ‘income tax.’  Talk about redistribution of wealth, folks, this is crazy.  We suspect the Chi-Coms won’t play along and EVERY corporation raking in the bucks will relocate to Beijing at worst or Hong Kong at best.  Here is yet another thing our leaders are doing for their Chi-Com paymasters.
  82. 2021 Saturday J: JOE BIDEN’S DAILY DISASTER- In a truly embarrassing moment for the senile guy supposedly leading the nation, people are growing outraged over Joe Biden’s claim that Pope Francis called the Pro-Death, abortion-loving-and-promoting usurper in the White House a ‘good Catholic.’  Joe, you are NOT a good Catholic, dude, you are going to burn in HELL when you go because of your crookedness, your stance on abortion, making money from the barbaric murder of untold numbers of babies, and the fact that you lie about everything.  Never claim to be a ‘good Catholic.’  Still, befuddled Joe had one more lie to spread: he said the ‘Pope wants him to continue receiving communion.’  U.S. archbishops, excommunicate this devil-worshipping POS.
  83. 2021 Saturday K: POLITICAL NEWS I- As Election Day in Virginia draws nearer and as predictions of a massive GOP sweep appear more imminent, suddenly, we hear that law enforcement in northern Virginia is on high alert for an ISIS terror attack.  Oh, come on now, can we stop with the bullshit already?  Are the Dems really trying to intimidate voters into staying at home?  If anything, people should flood the streets to vote every Democrat out across the entire state.  Who can’t remember the first free elections in Iraq when brave people walked the streets to their polling places with the threat of al-Qaida and other terrorist scum hanging low atop their heads?  We are Americans, we are afraid of NO ONE.
  84. 2021 Saturday L: POLITICAL NEWS II- As the voters of Virginia continue growing angrier by the day over the NAMBLA-loving, pedophile group, the Lincoln Project, and their despotic Democrat allies what with them trying to connect Republican businessman Glenn Youngkin and their favorite bogeyman, white supremacists (what a load of crap), Lincoln Project deviates and Democrats are forced to say, ‘yes, it was us who did this.’[xix]  Still, the left-wingers leapt atop the images and brayed how bad Mr. Youngkin is.  Look- the Democrats could not even drum up five WHITE GUYS.  One of their so-called white supremacists was as black as they come so WTF- as Joe Biden would mumble when he’s coherent, ‘come on, man!’  Ah, well, this is why Mr. Youngkin said what he said: ‘the Virginia election is more about a movement of people than a campaign.’  He is seeing people from across the political spectrum rushing to join him in making Virginia great again.
  85. 2021 Saturday M: POLITICAL NEWS III- Democrats are awakening to the fact that various President Donald J. Trump PACs and Super PACS are raking in one million bucks a week, rain, or shine.  Wow.  Meanwhile, the Republican running in New Jersey to unseat Governor “Slimy Phil” Murphy- Jack Ciattarelli- says that “Slimy Phil” is the most anti-cop governors.  We tend to agree, he’s among them.  We are donating to the campaign of Mr. Ciattarelli.  We hope you clean this loser’s clock next Tuesday.
  86. 2021 Saturday N: POLITICAL NEWS IV- House Democrats are planning to hold their BIG VOTE on the combined infrastructure/reconciliation bills on Tuesday, the day of two major elections that could spell doom for Democrats’ hopes down the road.   Speaking of the two elections, especially the one in Virginia, a new report says that Terry “The Maggot” McAuliffe, DS, received $350,000 in foreign donations.  Ah, well, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.  Does anyone remember Chi-Com campaign cash bundler Charlie Tri, the man who funneled millions of Chi-Com dollars into the “Maggot’s” then-boss, President Bill Clinton?  It’s what these scumbags do.
  87. 2021 Saturday O: SPORTS NEWS I- In tonight’s Game 4 of the 2021 World Series, the home team Atlanta Braves 98-76) took a commanding 3-1 game lead over the visiting Houston Astros (101-73) by beating them in a nail-biter 3-2.  Atlanta, we hope you win the series and can then tell Major League Baseball to go f**k themselves for pulling the MLB 2021 All-Star Game from your city and sending it to Colorado.  Oh- did you hear?  President Donald J. Trump and First Lady Melania Trump joined the crowd in doing the celebrated tomahawk chop.  The crowd ate it up while online news sources say the president joined in the demeaning, racist arm motion.  Can we just have fun and enjoy the game, you frigging liberals?  Enough already.
  88. 2021 Saturday P: CALIFORNIA LOTTERY RESULTS-SUPER LOTTO AND POWERBALL DRAWS– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3608 what with a $31 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 06, 14, 15, 17, 37, and Mega 03. Out of 112,029 winning tickets, the highest winners were THREE people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $12,854 apiece.   The winning tickets were sold at (1) Rick’s Grocery and Deli in Escondido, CA 92025; (2) Uncle Tom’s Liquor in Fresno, CA 93721; and (3) Oakland Liquor in Oakland, CA 94607.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #904 with a jackpot of $116 million up for grabs: 05, 23, 28, 43, 56, and Power 19.  Out of 66,170 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were FIVE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize $7,382.
  89. 2021 Saturday Q: One year ago, as Election Day drew near, we knew the Chi-Coms and their Democratic stooges were working hard to steal this election from the American people.  We hope you will stick around for updates on the Chi-Vi as well as whatever we uncover the Beijing bullies and their running dog patsies are up to…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album we have for you today is one that combines two albums together: “Live More or Less” combines Richard and Linda Thompson’s “I Want to See the Bright Lights Tonight” (American release) with ‘Guitar/Vocal’ (British release, credited solely to Richard Thompson).  If you have neither of these albums, why not get them both in one set- you definitely will enjoy both of them.  Richard and Linda Thompson make some great music together, extremely heartfelt, and also deeply intoxicating.  We love the duo and with backing support from other musicians, the completed efforts are both worthwhile.  We hope you will seek this one out wherever you shop for the best in music.  Great stuff, especially the smoking hot version of “Cavalry Cross.”  Amazing.

PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.

I’m catching up but I tell you, avoid the J & J jab at all costs.  My hubby and I did not believe that fetal remains from abortions played a part in the testing and manufacture of the COVID-19 vaccines but we sure as heck believe it now…just saying- Murph.

Beginning today, the American left threatens to disrupt the 2020 Elections; if we fail to turn out in massive numbers to stop them then we deserve what we get

ENDNOTES:

[i] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane, the Jefferson Starship, Starship, and of the various bands’ members beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.  Please look for them and enjoy.  Sadly, we failed to do the music of the Great Society at the time or that of various members’ solo catalogs.  We hope to rectify that mistake one day so please stay tuned.

[ii] 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.

[iii] We are not sure when AC/DC will be in the works, but you bet they will be at some point, possibly in 2027-2028.

[iv] We hope to share the music of the Eagles, Joe Walsh, Don Henley, Glenn Fray, and others, including Poco, sometime in the next decade.  Please remain with us.

[v] See previous footnote.

[vi] We began promoting the music of the Steve Miller Band beginning on Wednesday, 27-July-2011 through Wednesday, 24-August-2011 and then did a second stint on Sunday, 20-April-2014.  We hope you will check the music of this amazing San Francisco, California, acid-rock blues band.

[vii] We began promoting the music of the greatest British blues rock band, the Climax Blues Band, beginning on Monday, 16-September-2019 through Sunday, 27-October-2019.  This included the solo efforts of Pete Haycock and Colin Cooper.  We hope you will check them out and add them to your collection.

[viii] Many people speculate as to WHY Comey would reopen the investigation into Hillary’s missing emails so close to the Election?  Was it because he was demonstrating HIS POWER to Hillary that IF she failed to keep him on at best or worst for the American people, make him the next Attorney-General of the United States that he could destroy her?  Yes, the FBI ‘discovered Anthony Weiner’s laptop with information on it besides the people with whom he was sexting but why would a Deep State maggot like Comey do this to a person whom he wanted to serve?  We await answers…

[xix] While it’s always sad for us to have to point this out, the Democrats- NOT THE REPUBLICANS- are the party of (1) slavery (2) the Civil War (3) segregation (4) separate but equal (5) the Ku Klux Klan (6) lynchings, cross-burnings, and night-riders (7) red-lining (8) poll taxes (9) Bull Connor, police dogs, beatings, and firehoses and (10) the ‘second civil war of the 1960s- the struggle for Civil Rights.  Democrats are working overtime through Critical Race Theory, lies, bullshit, and propaganda to deflect the blame from them onto the GOP for all the bad things they have done both as a party and as separate members.  Democrats are the RACISTS and allies such as the Lincoln Project- composed of pedophiles, child rapists, and other deviate trash- do their bidding.  We are taking the country back and what is more important is that people who disliked President Donald J. Trump for his behavior and mannerisms are now coming around in the hundreds of thousands.  Joe Biden, time for you and your fellow filth to leave the White House.  Now.  -Moses Scharbug III.

  50. 2015 Thursday:  Today’s the day for Congressman Paul Ryan- he’s elected to replace outgoing Speaker of the House John Boehner.   Meanwhile, communist China announces an end to its one-child policy after 35 years.  Guess they are building up their military.  A nation like the People’s Republic of China requires massive amounts of cannon fodder to become dictator of the world.
  51. 2016 Saturday: In Oslo, Norway, former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev says it would benefit the world if we could tone down the rhetoric meaning the Democratic Party in the United States won’t stop blaming Vladimir Putin and Russia for all the ills in the world but especially in the upcoming presidential election.  In Game 4 of the World Series, the Cleveland Indians beat the Chicago Cubs by a score of 7-2, giving them a 3-to-1 series lead.

Trump.   Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of Defense Gen. James “Mad Dog” Mattis warns of a massive response should Kim Jong Un and North Korea attack the United States or our allies in the region.  Seems like he is trying to gin up yet another endless war in the Third World.   Elsewhere, in Game 5 of the 2017 World Series, the Houston Astros recover from being down four runs to the Los Angeles Dodgers and then beating them by a score of 13-12 in the bottom of the 10th inning to take a 3-2 series lead.  Both starters—Clayton Kershaw and Dallas Keuchel—found themselves knocked out somewhat early in the game with the bull pens then battling one another to eke out an incredible win. Meanwhile, all but 10 members of the Houston Texans took a knee during the national anthem, being the worthless POS’s they are, reacting to a remark from team owner Bob McNair to other NFL owners that “we can’t have the inmates running the prison.”  F**k them football players for being so flipping sensitive.  Grow a frigging pair, already.
  53. 2018 Monday: Long-time leftist leader of Germany- Angela Merkel- announces she will not seek another term as chancellor of the European powerhouse in 2021 and that when her term is up, she will also step down as head of her party.  Down in Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro, conservative politician, defeats his left-wing challenger Fernando Haddad in the presidential election.
  54. 2019 Tuesday: Climate Change alarmists are at it again: in a study published in “Nature Communications” by ‘Climate Central,’ ‘rising seas around the world could endanger more than 150 million people worldwide, three times higher than previously thought- when?  A  decade from now?  A century?  Or is this more bulls**t designed to strike terror into the hearts of young people across the globe?  Speaking of REAL danger, California continues to burn down, causing PG&E to flip the switch on more than 1.5 million customers in the vain hope they can halt the various wildfires’ progress.  Manage the forests and we would not be in the trouble in which, we find ourselves.  In Game 6 of the 2019 World Series, the Washington Nationals beat the Houston Astros 7-2 in Houston.
  55. 2020 Thursday: Both President Donald J. Trump and former vice president “Pro-China Joe” Biden are in Florida today battling for votes.  Famed political adviser Dick Morris says that ‘Democrats are doing everything possible to keep voters from going to the polls on Tuesday.’  Speaking of the polls, a judge in Michigan strikes down a ban of open carry of firearms at polling sites.  In other news, the economy grew a record 33 percent in the 3rd Quarter which House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi dismisses as ‘nothing.’  Even worse, she tells the hoi polloi that ‘it’s because of government largesse,’ which she seems to be standing in the way of.  White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow says the growth was ‘beyond expectations.’  Finally, famed golfer Jack Nicklaus endorses President Trump because he’s ‘kept his promises.’
  56. 2020 Thursday A: Department of Homeland Security officials warn that ‘IF Joe Biden wins on Election Day, there will be a massive invasion across the southern border.’  Speaking of border issues, Twitter (break these SOBS up) suspends the account of the U.S. border chief Mark Morgan for celebrating the success of the wall between the United States and Mexico for bringing the numbers of illegals attempting to sneak across the border to almost nil.  Time to break Twitter up.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Supreme Court allows extensions for the arrival of ballots in Pennsylvania and North Carolina.  In the same vein, the Girl Scouts of America delete a tweet celebrating the successful nomination and placement onto the U.S. Supreme Court of Amy Coney Barrett because of leftist backlash.  Finally, Dr. Tony Fauci and Goldman Sachs demand a national mask mandate as a means of stopping the Chi-Com Virus.
  57. 2020 Thursday B: In France, the so-called ‘religion of peace’- Islam- strikes again as an Islamist thug murders three women- including the beheading of one- at the Basilica of Notre Dame in Nice- whereas another one attempting to cause mayhem gets shot by the cops.    Elsewhere on the foreign affairs front, the White House moves ahead with the sale of 50 F-35 jets to the United Arab Emirates. 
  58. 2020 Thursday C: Glenn Greenwald, co-founder of the Intercept, posts his resignation letter on Twitter today.  Since the Intercept has joined in the crowd that is doing everything possible to censor any stories connected to Hunter Biden’s laptop or to his dad’s crooked dealings in Chi-Com land, the Ukraine, and wherever else President Barack Obama had sent him, he felt he could no longer work there.  What a shame.  Go to Newsmax.  Speaking of the Biden Family story, Ronna McDaniel, chairperson of the Republican National Committee, says ‘censorship of this story is a step closer to socialism.’  We can attest to that because some unseen entity out there has slashed our numbers to almost ZERO.   Elsewhere, UBS poll shows investors favor President Donald J. Trump over “Pro-China Joe” Biden by 52-48 percent.  No kidding!  Meanwhile, we learn that the little closet pink cupcake Jack Dorsey of Twitter has censored President Donald J. Trump 65 times (at least) and “Pro-China Joe” Biden ZERO times.  Again, it’s time to break up Twitter, Google/Alphabet, and Facebook.  Deport Sundar Pichai and his family back to Bangladesh.
  59. 2020 Thursday D: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Yellow Fever, Chi-Com Virus, the Wuhan Horseshoe Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 44,708,172 confirmed cases, +396,498, 1,177,077, confirmed deaths, +5,791, and 30,130,418 confirmed recoveries, +240,476.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 9,026,274 confirmed cases, UP 87,139 from yesterday’s reporting, 232,008 confirmed deaths, UP 1,151, and 5,512,841 confirmed recoveries, UP 30,204.  Here are the stats for Israel now that Mo is living there: 313,114 confirmed cases, 2,508 confirmed deaths, and 299,439 confirmed recoveries.
  60. 2020 Thursday E: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous, anti-communist American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 924,336 confirmed cases, 17,554 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 14,975 confirmed cases, 215 confirmed deaths, and 11,605 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 110,193 confirmed cases, 2,458 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Maryland- currently, they have 143,875 confirmed cases, 4,127 confirmed deaths, and 8,144 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Larry Hogan for your honesty.
  61. 2020 Thursday F: We had an up-and-down day in the markets today.  Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 26,659.11, UP 139.16 points (+0.52%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  11,185.59, UP 180.72 points (+1.64%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,310.11, UP 39.08 points (+1.19%).  Price of GOLD: $1,866.20 per troy oz., -1.80 (-0.10%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $23.30 per troy oz., -0.006 (-0.26%).  Price of PLATINUM: $850.30 per troy oz., +0.80 (+0.09%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,198.50 per troy oz., -52.10 (-2.31%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.06 per #, +0.002 (+0.07%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $36.01, -0.16 (-0.44%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.71 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.86 euros.  Conversely, one-dollar U.S. = 28.35 Taiwanese dollars.
  62. 2020 Thursday G: Breaking News- Greg Kelly on Newsmax reports that the U.S. Department of Justice has been investigating Hunter Biden since December 2019.  One of the things being investigating are possible money-laundering charges.  One might think word of this would have arisen while the House was running the impeachment sham against President Donald J. Trump.  Shame.  
  63. 2020 Thursday H: Tonight’s Thursday Night Football Game (1) Atlanta Falcons, 25 (2-6) @ Carolina Panthers, 17 (3-5).
  64. 2020 Thursday I: In other news, the Trump administration reverses an Obama era policy that prevented Americans born in Jerusalem from listing either the city or the nation of Israel on their passports. The John Roberts Supreme Court helped Obama accomplish this by saying its standing interfered with the president’s right to set foreign policy.  What? Screw Obama, the man was an anti-Semite as are many Democrats.  Elsewhere, although historically still high, new jobless claims dropped to 751,000, the lowest since March.  Numbers are down by 40,000 across 30 states with California, Florida, and Texas showing the biggest gains in the era of COVID-19.  Sadly, IHOP says it’s going to close 100 restaurants across the country thanks to the ongoing Chi-Vi pandemic.

We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[xi]

TRUMP COVID-19 DEATHS- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 451,276 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 rampaging 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 him.  He has surpassed President Donald J.

  71. 2021 Friday G: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE I- As the massive caravan continues plowing north through Mexico, hurling one roadblock of trembling Mexican national police aside after another, it breaks our hearts to have to tell you this, but we feel we must: today is Day No. 218 for the (in)famous ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be running the BIG SHOW down along the border and Day No. 125 since the wily skank showed up to do the f**king job.  Ho, get yo’ ho ass down there and do the damned job.  Now.  Meanwhile, former U.S. Border Patrol Chief Rodney Scott says that ‘Joe Biden has walked away from securing the border.’
  72. 2021 Friday H: FOREIGN NEWS-OVERSEAS NEWS I- Haitian police announced they have received ‘proof of life’ of the 17 kidnapped American missionaries currently being held by thugs although they did not say ‘what proof’ they received.  Did you get an ear from each?  What did the scum provide you?  Elsewhere, France and the United Kingdom are battling one another over fishing rights in the English Channel.
  73. 2021 Friday I: COVID-19 UPDATES AND ADDITIONAL INFORMATION I- The Food and Drug Administration fully approves the Pfizer Chi-Vi vaccine for use among 5-11-year-olds.   Meanwhile, scientists are lambasting the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines made by AstraZeneca and Pfizer as being insufficient for use in combatting the spiked proteins.  Speaking of Chairman Xi’s never-ending bat flu, the U.S. Intel Community said there’s ‘fat chance’ the COVID-19 virus was ‘genetically modified.’  Like anyone believes the U.S. Intel Community…didn’t they tell us that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction not that long ago?  Did they have a clue the Chi-Coms were testing hypersonic missiles?  Nope.
  74. 2021 Friday J: HEALTH AND MEDICAL ALERTS- Scientists announce they have discovered the progression of Alzheimer’s disease in the human brain.  Good.  Maybe we will be able to cure this malady and in so doing, do something to help drooler-in-chief, slobbering Joe Biden.
  75. 2021 Friday K: COVID-19 LOCKDOWNS-RESTRICTIONS-AND AUTHORITARIANISM NEWS- First responders across the country are fighting the unconstitutional vaccine mandates being forced upon them.  We hope in the New York mayoral race that EVERYONE votes for Curtis Sliwa on Tuesday.  This is the ONLY way to stop this lunacy.  Still, firefighters are filling the Big Apple’s streets protesting the unconstitutional mandates.  Next, a new poll says that one-third of U.S. workers say their employers are forcing Chi-Vi vaccine mandates upon them.  Next, up to 12,000 U.S. Air Force personnel are expected to get the boot for now giving into the jab.  Talk about our country being weakened at a time when we must be on our toes the most!

  81. 2021 Friday Q: JOE BIDEN NEWS I- “Great Leader” Joe Biden met with Pope Francis today in a 90-minute, untelevised meeting (what are they going to do?  Show Joe with drool spilling off his chin?) with Pope Francis, we learn the most important topic of all- stopping the abortion holocaust- did not arise.  Pope Francis is a disgrace.  You cannot serve as the leader of all Christendom and be a Marxist at the same time, your grace.  Meanwhile, when asked by reporters what the pope and he discussed, slobbering Joe Biden said, “Abortion didn’t come up.”  Even more hilarious, the Catholic League says, ‘the Vatican stiffed Joe Biden.’
  82. 2021 Friday R: JOE BIDEN’S DAILY DISASTER- A new poll says that ’57-percent of the American people blame feeble Joe Biden for the crumbling economy.’  Next, while overseas in Europe, following his meeting with Pope Francis, Joe Biden’s shell sat down with French leader Emanuel Macron and told him the backstabbing deal made by the U.S. and the U.K. to give Australia nuclear submarine technology was ‘clumsy.’  (Note- because it was all for show, dumb ass.  You guys thought you were BIG S**T robbing France of a $40-50 billion deal previously made between Paris and Canberra).
  83. 2021 Friday S: JOE BIDEN REGIME NEWS I- The Biden regime’s Department of Justice has reached an $88 million settlement in the 2015 Charleston church massacre.  Next, Joe Biden’s Department of Education is going after the Sunshine State.  They are warning Tallahassee NOT to deprive public schools of funding should said schools choose to IGNORE “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis’ orders against MASK MANDATES.  Next, U.S. Energy Department Secretary Jennifer M. Granholm says that ‘credits for union-made electric vehicles are essential.’
  84. 2021 Friday T: NANCY PELOSI’S JANUARY 06-2021 FALSE FLAG OPERATION- House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s sham 01-06-2021 False Flag Operation select committee ‘investigating the events’ surrounding the Capitol Hill ‘riots’ of that fateful day announce that it’s going to issue a subpoena to conservative attorney and Trump legal mind, John Eastman.  Wow.  In other news related to the events of that day, Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch says that D.C. Capitol Police Department officers had ample warnings of the large crowds that day and still did nothing.
  85. 2021 Friday U: POLITICAL NEWS I- Trump-hater, crybaby Congressman Adam “The C**t” Kinzinger, RINO-IL 16th congressional district, announces that instead of seeking another term in office, he is going to retire.[xx]  In his discombobulated video in which, he made the announcement, he said that ‘this is not the end of my political career but merely the beginning.’  Many expect he will seek the governorship of Illinois while some of us believe the sniveling POS pussy will run for the White House in 2024.  What is wrong with these goobers who possess the self-image of being so much more important than they ever will be?  Once he started blubbering before the false flag operation 01-06-2021 Committee in the House, he sealed his fate- for good.  (Note- President Donald J. Trump said of the loser’s announcement today, “two down, eight to go.”[xxi]  Amen).
  86. 2021 Friday V: POLITICAL NEWS II- As Dems continue taking one another out in their fight to pass Joe Biden’s Build Back Better Bullshit agenda, an anonymous Capitol Hill staffer said that ultra-far-left crackpot Congresswoman Pramila “Pucker Puss” Jayapal, CPUSA-WA 7th congressional district, actually ejected senile House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi out of a meeting.  Whoa.  It appears ‘Madam Speaker’ no longer possesses the long knives to eliminate her enemies.  Still, the Dems are delaying votes on Joe Biden’s Build Back Better Bullshit agenda because they cannot get it together.   Meanwhile, Congressman Kevin Hern, R-OK 1st congressional district, said that the ‘Dems’ impasse over Joe Biden’s infrastructure and reconciliation bills has placed the FRINGE in charge, Vermont socialist Senator Bernie Sanders and Sandy “The Fly” Cortez.
  87. 2021 Friday W: POLITICAL NEWS III- Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, said today that ‘essential workers have done their jobs, don’t force them to undergo the Chi-Vi vaccination.’   Meanwhile, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis slams Joe Biden for his fascist vaccine mandates and sets the date for a special session of the Florida House and Senate to combat the feeble president’s dictates.  Add to that the fact that the Sunshine State is suing both the Biden regime and NASA for demanding all workers undergo this highly questionable s**t coming out of Washington, D.C.
  88. 2021 Friday X: U.S. MILITARY NEWS- U.S. Air Force General John E. Hyten pointed out today the unpalatable fact that the Chi-Coms have tested ‘hypersonic missiles hundreds of times compared to just nine for us.’  This ain’t good.
  89. 2021 Friday Y: CRIME AND PUNISHMENT NEWS-LAW ENFORCEMENT NEWS I- Rapper Fetty Wap has been arrested on federal drug charges.  Next- and we thought he was out of the woods- prosecutors are seeking prison time for mob attorney and rat, Michael Avenatti, over him trying to pull ‘an Al Sharpton’ and extorting Nike on race.’  The only problem with that scam is that attorney Avenatti is WHITE.  It doesn’t work the same way, Michael!
  90. 2021 Friday Z: MASS SHOOTINGS NEWS– Armorer on Alec Baldwin’s “Rust” movie set says the film head overruled her attempts at instilling safety on the set when it comes to handling firearms.  As you should recall, Alec Baldwin shot two people, killing one and severely injuring the other.  Is this karma for him slamming cops, asking ‘how it feels to kill someone accidentally?’  Alec, you are a POS.
  91. 2021 Friday AA: PRO-DEATH MOVEMENT-ABORTION NEWS- Devil-worshipping Democrats across the country are going insane as a new report says that ‘abortions in the Lone Star State dropped by 50-percent in the month of September.’  YOU GO, TEXAS, YOU GO!
  92. 2021 Friday BB: POPULAR CULTURE NEWS- Country and Western performer Morgan Wallen is up for two American Music awards he cannot accept because of his use of the ‘N-word.’  What is up with you, dude?
  93. 2021 Friday CC: RELIGION NEWS– A Christian school group- Ratio Christi- is suing the University of Nebraska- Lincoln over the school’s refusal to fund the $1,500 speaking fee of well-known Christian scholar and speaker, University of Notre Dame’s Robert Audi.  The school would probably be more than happy to host a speaker from the Satanic Temple or from the scumbag president of Iran.
  94. 2021 Friday DD: NASA, SPACE, AND UFO NEWS-  NASA is blindly following along with Joe Biden’s vaccine mandates and is terminating federal government and contractor workers who have not yet received their jabs.  WTF, NASA!  It appears that everything presently occurring within and around our government is to benefit the Chi-Coms.  The commies are in deeper in this country than they have ever been and it’s all financially based.  Who knows?  The PRC could soon be building concentration camps on the Moon for their Uighurs…
  95. 2021 Friday EE: VIRGINIA STATE NEWS- While delivering a speech on educational freedom in the Old Dominion State today, Vice President said of the Biden regime’s new plan to gift every illegal alien family member separated by the Trump administration $450,000 apiece (Note- spouses of U.S. servicemembers killed in action receive a payment of $400,000), that it’s ‘incomprehensibly stupid.’  (Note- Chef Bea O’Malley, the black mind of the AICPENDBLOG.COM, said IF black Democrats were not yet aware of how low their status is within the Democratic Party, this says it all.  NO REPARATIONS for slavery but illegal aliens get ‘reparations?’  She is hot, folks, extremely hot).  In other Virginia news, a new Fox News Channel poll shows that Republican gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin now enjoys an insurmountable 8-point lead over former Virginia Governor Terry “The Maggot” McAuliffe, a far-left Democratic Party loser.   Well-known Virginia politico Ken Cuccinelli says that ‘Virginia feels like a GOP victory.’  (Election Day is this upcoming Tuesday).  In other Virginia gubernatorial news, Dems once again launched another false flag operation against Mr. Youngkin when they set up ‘tiki torches’ outside a Youngkin stop in Charleston.  The Dems were attempting to evoke the ‘white supremacist’ event they set up early in President Donald J. Trump’s term.  Later in the day, we learned it was the pro-pedophile, pro-NAMBLA group, the Lincoln Project.  (Note- the Americans that fought on the side of the communists in Spain during the Spanish Civil War called themselves the Lincoln Brigades.  Gives you an idea as to whom these scurrilous, scum-sucking, bottom-feeding rats are).
  96. 2021 Friday FF: CALIFORNIA LOTTERY RESULTS-MEGA-MILLIONS DRAW- Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1707 what with a $22 million jackpot on the line: 15, 26, 28, 35, 45, and Mega 04.   Out of 45,465 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $11,549.
