  69. 2022 Monday: Observation of the Day- Living overseas provides me with a different view of what is going on in my home country.  All I can say is that I have never seen nor thought I would ever see a fascist government the likes of the Joe Biden regime.  Imagine sending FBI goon squads out to the homes of Pro-Life Christian ministers- who among us ever thought we would see that?  Imagine sending an army of FBI thugs into the home of a ‘former’ president, ostensibly to seize records the archivists in Washington, D.C., claim to need?  Never thought I would live to see that.  Imagine going across the country seizing the phones of friends of the ‘former’ president with vague warrants and lots of jackbooted tactics?  Something else I never expected to see.  I never thought that the FBI would go after former advisers for a ‘former’ president, accosting them at airports, slapping them in leg irons, handcuffs, and dragging them off to languish in a prison cell after they agreed to cooperate and to present themselves?  This is not good.  All I can say is that I am glad that I am on the downhill slide in my life that I am closer to the end than nearer to the start.  I suspect that if we fail to have the crushing victory in the 2022 Mid-Terms, future generations will look back on this time in national and world history and will say that this is when DEMOCRACY died and that the American people were unwilling to fight to keep it.  I am extremely glad I am where I am at because I do not know if I could continue functioning in a society gone awry.  Let me know your opinions- Moses Scharbug III.

Russia’s war of aggression in Ukraine demonstrates just how worthless the United Nations are. Granted, Russia can veto any attempt at U.N. mobilization to send troops to beat off the Russian bear but if the member-states would adhere to the principles the founding members bestowed upon it via the U.N. charter, the war would have been over long ago…

  61. 2019 Wednesday: Poor Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle sues the British tabloid The Mail over the paper’s publication of a personal letter they claim was ‘private.’  Nothing is private when you’re a royal, son.  Elsewhere, the owner of the NFL Arizona Cardinals team, 1962-2019, Bill Bidwell, dies at age 88.
  62. 2020 Friday: Following last night’s announcement that President Donald J. Trump and First Lady Melania Trump both tested positive for the Chi-Vi, they are in isolation.   Speaking of President Trump, Reuters reports the results of a recent poll that shows “Pro-China Joe” Biden is smoking Trump by virtue of what many believe to be an insurmountable lead of nine points.  However, Gallup reports that President Trump’s approval ratings are at their highest since the month of March, 46-percent.  A question asked by Gallup pollsters, “Despite whom you plan to support on November 3 and viewing things objectively, who do you think will win on November 3?”  A whopping 56-percent to 40-percent said they believe that President Trump will win re-election.  That says a lot.  Still, a poll on CNBC says that “Pro-China Joe” Biden is going to whoop President Trump by 54-percent to 41-percent.    Meanwhile, the Democrat-controlled U.S. House of Representatives passed a $2.2 TRILLION COVID-19 relief bill.  All Republicans- plus 18 Democrats- voted against it.  It is expected to die a slow death in the U.S. Senate. 
  63. 2020 Friday A: Chinese state-run media is laughing at President Trump following his announcement of having the Chinese Virus.  Why are you laughing?  This has been Beijing’s plan all along, to infect as many Americans as possible.  The rest of the world is merely collateral damage in the eyes of the modern-day Mandarin scum.  Speaking of all-things Chi-Com, Game 1 of the NBA Finals between the Los Angeles Lakers, and the Miami Heat (Lakers won 116 to 98) had the lowest viewership since 1994 when the New York Knicks played the Houston Rockets faced off against one another: 7 million, down from Game 1 of last year’s finals between the Toronto Raptors and the Golden State Warriors.  That matchup had 13.7 million viewers.  Perhaps it’s time for the NBA to move to communist China, a place they seem to value more than they do their native country.  Adios, muchachos.
  64. 2020 Friday B: U.S. unemployment dropped below 8-percent yesterday, coming in at 7.9-percent what with 661,000 new jobs created and an increase in wage growth by 4.7-percent.   Speaking of economics, Switzerland announces it has approved a minimum wage of $25 per hour.  Yikes.  The cost of everything is going to skyrocket which means the mountain-surrounded country will have to import more Muslim refugees to fill low-wage jobs (under the table, if you know what we mean).  Elsewhere, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announces that the confirmation hearings for Judge Amy Coney Barrett will plow ahead, even as Democrats screech for a slow-down in the process.  Speaking of court matters, the U.S. Supreme Court says it’s going to review a BALLOT HARVESTING LAW in the state of Arizona.
  65. 2020 Friday C: Earlier today, Marine One transported President Donald J. Trump to Walter Reed Medical Center due to his Xi Jinping Bat Flu symptoms.  Upon arrival, he walked off the helicopter on his own volition, snapped a salute to military personnel, and headed for the hospital.  First Lady Melania Trump remains at the White House.  Son, Baron, and other family members have tested negative for the virus.  We neglected to mention that RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel also has the Chi-Vi.  Get well, Mr. President, and Nancy “Mumbles’ Pelosi, stop talking about presidential succession: YOU will NEVER get close to the White House other than as an invited guest.
  66. 2020 Friday D: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a whole– 34,448,691 confirmed cases, +368,568, 1,025,315, confirmed deaths, +9,500, and 23,914,378 confirmed recoveries, +225,513.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 7,407,970 confirmed cases, up 72,412 from yesterday’s reporting, 211,761 confirmed deaths, UP 1,404, and 3,942,432 confirmed recoveries, UP 18,876. 
  67. 2020 Friday E: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 826,362 confirmed cases, 16,033 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 12,660 confirmed cases, 139 confirmed deaths, and 10,340 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 92,166 confirmed cases, 2,227 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 258,920 confirmed cases, 1,633 confirmed deaths, and 185,122 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other state: New Hampshire- currently, they have 8,317 confirmed cases, 441 confirmed deaths, and 7,534 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Chris Sununu, for sharing ALL the numbers.
  68. 2020 Friday F: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– NOT GOOD with the president in the hospital: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 27,682.81, DOWN 134.09 points (-0.48%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  11,075.02, DOWN 251.49 points (-2.22%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,348.44, DOWN 32.36 points (-0.96%).  Price of GOLD: $1,904.10 per troy oz., -3.50 (-0.18%). Here is the price of SILVER: $23.86 per troy oz., -0.169 (-0.70%).  Price of PLATINUM: $887.20 per troy oz., -4.20 (-0.47%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,305.00 per troy oz., -21.00 (-0.90%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $2.98 per #, +0.0025 (+0.08%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $37.01, -0.04 (-0.11%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.79 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.85 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.73 Afghan afghani.
  69. 2020 Friday G:  As has become the norm, if you want to know what sorts of devious activities the Democratic Party and their bosses in Beijing are up to, you will have to check in throughout the day as more and more information continues coming to light.  We know the Chi-Coms and their allies in the Democratic Party are celebrating the president’s plight; their time is coming and it’s coming soon.  We also know as of today that the Chi-Coms are waging war on our blog site, using their stooge at Google- Sundar Pichai- to put us in page 100 of search results.  What do you scumbags fear?  YOU fear free speech?  We know Sundar Pichai sure the heck does; after all, he’s the POS who shut down the popular Google Plus site, used by millions of users around the world.  He did to stick his nose up Xi Jinping’s butt.
  70. 2020 Friday H: We learned this evening that the Michigan Supreme Court struck down Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Democrat- a woman, who if ANTIFA truly battled fascism would be there en masse doing battle with her- struck down her recent bald-faced attempt at extending her dictatorial power by extending the COVID-19 lockdown until the end of October.  They said without approval by the state’s legislature, her orders were invalid.  According to the court, ‘life must begin returning to normal.’  Elsewhere, we learned that former White House counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway tested positive for the Wuhan Virus as has North Carolina Senator Thom Tillis, Republican, Utah Senator Mike Lee, Republican, and three members of the White House Press Corps.   Sadly, many on the left are praying the president dies while world leaders- from Boris Johnson, UK, Angela Merkel, Germany, Vladimir Putin, Russia, and Kim Jong-Un, North Korea.  Thank you.   We also must note that both the former Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden both tested NEGATIVE today for the Chinese Virus.  Good health to you and yours.
  71. 2020 Friday I: Here are the numbers for Mega-Millions: 09, 38, 47, 49, 68, and Mega 25.  (Next jackpot: $41 million) #1595 (The highest winners were 34 people who had four numbers for a prize of $413 apiece).

We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [ix]   
  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 403,498 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 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 580 deaths which we expect will come soon which will push the dictator past the death mark the 45th president held.  NOT GOOD, Joe, NOT GOOD.

[xv]    Let us look at one other North Carolina: $3.008.  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- Netherlands: $8.257 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,831,207,808,101 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xvii]  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 the Netherlands, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Israel with $49 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  78. 2021 Saturday F: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3600 what with a $22 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner.  Here are the numbers for tonight: 06, 22, 32, 34, 46, and Mega 03.  Out of 119,674 winning tickets, the highest winners were 3 people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $13,905.  The tickets were sold at (1) 7-Eleven in El Segundo, CA 90245; (2) Circle K in Perris, CA 92571; and (3) Hallelujah Junction Market in Chilcoot, CA 96105.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #892 with a jackpot of $635 million up for grabs: 28, 38, 42, 47, 52, and Powerball 01.  Out of 350,666 winning tickets, the highest winners were 12 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $16,509 apiece.
  79. 2022 Sunday: Observation of the Day- Like many of my colleagues, My contention is the United Nations no longer possesses any relevancy what with the ongoing war in the Ukraine and the atrocities Russian and Russian mercs are committing there.[xviii]  While I understand that Russia can veto any resolution merely because of their presence on the U.N. Security Council, one would think that the UN Secretary-General would be hitting them every day with demands to cease, desist, and to evacuate that war-torn land.  As with most things, the creators of the U.N. somehow did not envision the possibility that one of the five permanent members would begin an illegal and unjustified war and yet it has happened at least twice now: George W. Bush’s criminal invasion of Iraq and now Vladimir Putin’s war against Ukraine.  BOTH of these men should be tried in the Hague and both these men should be given lengthy prison sentences.  I would hope that the next president- the rightful president– uncovers a way through which we can rectify this glaring mistake.  We know the current lump of aged flesh in the Oval Office will do nothing other than to commit billions and billions of borrowed Chi-Com monies to the fight AFTER he and his corrupt family skim off copious amounts of cash.  I’m not saying anything everyone does not know, okay?  The Biden regime and family are as corrupt as they come.  It is what it is.  Let’s sweep the November midterms and let us march forward as a unified people.  See you in six months- let us hope things are better than they are now.  Chef Lilah Paulikovich.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0970 an 8” x 10” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Sunset Magic.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclee, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from Cheap Trick is the one that pushed them across the finish line as far as being superstars.  On February 12, 1998, Cheap Trick released the full edition of their first live album, “Live at Budokan,”- “Live at Budokan- the Complete Concert.”  The band had become superstars in Japan what with “I Want You to Want Me” and the version on this album, hyped-up made-for-AM-radio single monopolized the airwaves for weeks and much like the tune, “Surrender,” remains a radio favorite to this day.  This is perhaps one of the all-time best live albums to come out of the 1970’s and would be up there with “Frampton Comes Alive” as a mega-seller.  Once again, the lineup is the same quartet of Rick Nielsen (guitars, backing vocals), Robin Zander (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Tom Petersson (bass, backing vocals), and Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion).  We hope that everyone will visit their favorite site for the absolute best in rock music and will then add it to your never-ending, forever-growing collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-approved music and DVDs- you will be glad you did.

[i] We hope that when President Trump returns to the White House that he and a unified GOP will deport the United Nations out of New York City and send it to Beijing where it’s better suited.  Get the U.N. out of the U.S. NOW.

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

[iii] Not sure when we will begin doing the music of the Police as well as of the band’s three members but when we do, you will be the first to know.

[iv] 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.

[v] We expect to present the music of the Jackson Five and Michael Jackson sometime in 2025-2026 so please stay tuned for future developments.

[vii] At some point when we return to presenting the music of American bands, we will promote that of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers as well as of Tom Petty himself.  We hope you will await word as to when we do.  We thank you.

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

274. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, OCTOBER 01, 2022

I said it yesterday and will say it again- Joe Biden is an illegitimate president and Karma demonstrates that every single day. Democrats are the true election deniers but they follow the Joseph Goebbels’ school of propaganda: IF you hammer away at the same lie over and over and over, eventually, it must sink in. Well, we are NOT buying this crap. Vote November 8 like your life depends upon it as it most assuredly does…

  71. 2020 Thursday: An amazing scene occurred today in the White House Press Room as reporters- including John Roberts of Fox News Channel- attempted to get White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany to voice that “Donald Trump renounces white supremacism.” She provided numerous examples going back years in which Mr. Trump, both as private citizen and as president of the United States, blasted the notion.  Reporters never will ask “Pro-China Joe” Biden to renounce Antifa and Black Lives Matter nor do they ask him to denounce his son, Hunter, actively colluding with communist China.  At first, we were confused but a source we have within the Biden campaign has alluded to the fact that internal polling shows black support for President Donald J. Trump is at an astounding 22-25 percent.  This would explain the amped-up rudeness we are seeing on display.  Adding to this story is the fact that Rush Limbaugh, during the second hour of his show today, has pointed out that the Proud Boys are a mixed group, both racially and ethnically, and that their international head- Enrique Tarrio- is a person of color.  He’s a black Cuban.   Yet, we know that “Pro-China Joe” Biden interacted with segregationists Senator J. William Fulbright, D-AR, Senator Herman Talmadge, D-GA, Senator Strom Thurmond, D-SC, Senator Robert C. Byrd, D-W. VA, Governor George C. Wallace, D-AL, and numerous other white segregationists.  His own pick for VP called him a ‘racist’ so what the heck?  
  72. 2020 Thursday A: The Trump campaign slams the Presidential Debate Commission over it ‘moving the goalposts’ on behalf of “Pro-China Joe” Biden.  Biden supports the moderator being able to cut the mic of Trump- is this a sign of confidence in the Biden-Harris campaign?  We think now.  Meanwhile, ransomware attacks- most likely from communist China and Russia- hammer Tyler Technology, a company that helps report election results in real time.  Tyler says the attacks ‘cannot change votes’ but that they ‘can sow confusion.’  They are working to correct this situation.  Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, California, what was first reported yesterday- that the authorities had arrested the POS shooter of the two sheriff’s deputies as they sat in their patrol car is a fact.  Convicted felon, Deonte Murray, 36-years-old was already in custody for other offenses so they did not have to search far for this scumbag.  Hoist him high and drop him!  Elsewhere, the CDC extends its ‘NO SAIL’ order for all cruise ships until the end of October due to the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.   Finally, President Trump signs a stopgap bill to keep the government funded.
  73. 2020 Thursday B: LEFT-WING, LIBERAL, FAKE NEWS MEDIA attack line on Trump today is “WE DEMAND YOU DENOUNCE WHITE SUPREMACY” in these words.  Everyone in the administration must say this or else.  Friends, it is clear the Democrats are losing black and Latino voters, Telemundo providing a BIG INSIGHT into this shift following Tuesday night’s debate in Cleveland, Ohio.  A whopping 66-percent of viewers said Trump won compared to 33-percent who felt he lost.  This is NOT good for Democrats.  Let’s make them a modern-day incarnation of the Whigs.  Meanwhile, the Cook Political Report says that the Trump campaign is winning the voter registration battle forcing the Biden campaign to begin going door to door in the search for voters.  Speaking of the Biden campaign, WHY is the VP nominee hiding?   Is it because she knows the truth that the Harris-Biden 2020 ticket is going to be one of the all-time greatest landslide losers?   Still the latest poll from Rasmussen says Biden leads Trump 51% to 43%.
  74. 2020 Thursday C: U.S. Border and Customs officers bust 125 pounds of cocaine, worth at least one million in the U.S.- at a border crossing from Mexico into the United States.   The cartels are going to whack somebody somewhere for this mix up…

  77. 2020 Thursday F: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– We had a FAIRLY BIG UPSWING in the markets today.  Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 27,816.90, UP 35.20 points (+0.13%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  11,326.51, UP 159.00 points (+1.42%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,380.80, UP 17.80 points (+0.53%).  Price of GOLD: $1,907.80 per troy oz., -8.50 (-0.44%).  Here is the price of SILVER: $23.84 per troy oz., -0.409 (-1.69%).  Price of PLATINUM: $902.80 per troy oz., -3.20 (-0.35%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,328.20 per troy oz., -2.30 (-0.10%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $2.87 per #, +0.002 (+0.07%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $38.36, -0.36 (-0.93%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.79 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.85 euros.  Conversely, one-dollar U.S. = 28.88 Taiwanese dollars.  Unemployment now stands at or around 8.4 percent (August).  In April, it was a whopping 14.7-percent.  Right now, approximately 13.5 million Americans are out of work, thanks to Xi Jinping’s Bat Flu.  Jobless claims rose to nearly 850,000 first-time unemployed workers seeking benefits.  Other than on Beijing, the blame rests squarely on the shoulders of House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi who will not come to a COVID-19 relief deal with the Trump White House.  Vote her out on November 3 and send her packing.   
  78. 2020 Thursday G: Late this evening, President Donald J. Trump announces that he and First Lady Melania are now COVID-19 positive.  This follows on the news that Hope Hicks, an integral part of the White House team announced earlier in the day that she tested positive for the Chi-Vi.  This means Fox News commentator Chris Wallace now must rush to his doctor just as “Pro-China Joe” Biden will.  Sounds like the 2020 campaign is sputtering to a halt.  Thank you, Chi-Coms, thank you.
  79. 2020 Thursday H:  Here is the result of Thursday Night Football’s game: (1) Thursday Night Football: Denver Broncos, 37 (1-3) @ New York Jets, 28 (0-4).

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 402,690 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 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 1,388 deaths which we expect will come soon which will push the dictator past the death mark the 45th president held.  NOT GOOD, Joe, NOT GOOD.

  86. 2021 Friday F: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Both Nationalist aka the Republic of China- aka FREE China- and the Chi-Coms celebrate their national day today.  The Chi-Coms decided to have some fun and sent more than two dozen warplanes into Taiwanese airspace.  It would appear that Chairman Xi is seeking to increase pressure on the freedom-loving people of FREE CHINA.  Folks, we should have nuked the Chi-Coms back in the early 1950s.  Light ‘em up, tune ‘em up, and make them docile.
  87. 2021 Friday G: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh has tested positive for the ‘VID.  He is asymptomatic.   Next, multiple failed candidate Andrew Yang said today that ‘were it not for COVID-19, President Donald J. Trump would still be in office.’  Meanwhile, aging Senator Lisa Murkowski, RINO-AK, decries the surge in COVID-19 cases in the Last Frontier and blasts those who compare ‘mask mandates with Nazism.’  The atrocious old gal is trying to save her jobs.  Next, a law firm is battling COVID-19 mandates in New York State but U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Sonia “A Wise Latina” Sotomayor smacked the lawsuit against them down.  The mandates requiring students, workers, and state employees to undergo jabs stands.  Next, Joe Biden is urging ALL U.S. airlines to impose Chi-Vi vaccine mandates on ALL employees.  (See ‘follow the money’).

  93. 2021 Friday M: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– Joe Biden showed up on Capitol Hill today with a disheveled House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, trying to make some magic happen on all the multi-trillion-dollar spending bills the pair are trying to shove through to competition.  It was clear that Joe was unclear as to where he was while Nancy’s eyes were looking in two different directions at the same time and when reporters shouted questions at him as he fumbled along the hallway, he reacted angrily as though Corn Pop was nearby threatening to kick his senile butt.  Joe finally babbled about the passage of the bill that it matters not if it takes ‘six minutes, six hours, or six days’ to pass the unconstitutional POS bill which to most observers means it’s not going to pass.  Joe’s ‘agenda’ is at risk, especially with Senator Manchin opposed to it and Senator Kyrsten Sinema already on the plane heading back to Arizona.
  94. 2021 Friday N: Political News I– Polling suggests the Democrats are going to lose the Senate in 2022.  Folks, if the border is not closed, the Dems have nothing to worry about.  Meanwhile, Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, the dingbat Rep. better known by ‘AOC,’ is mocking Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, who is hesitant about voting for the disastrous bills the socialist Democrats SO WANT.  Senator Manchin said today that ‘if he cannot explain the bill back home to his constituents, he won’t vote for it.’  Good for you.  (Note to AOC- STFU, you ditz).  
  95. 2021 Friday O: Political News II– Rep. James Comer, R-KY 1st congressional district, says that ‘Hunter Biden’s art sales pose a national security risk.’  Amen.  Rep. Rob Wittman, R-VA 1st congressional district, says it’s ‘extremely troubling that Joe Biden lies or has forgotten’ practically everything the senile cretin says and does, especially when it comes to the disaster in Afghanistan and the loss of U.S. military personnel.
  96. 2021 Friday P: U.S. Supreme Court News I– In a speech to the University of Notre Dame law school yesterday, U.S. Supreme Court Samuel A. Alito Jr. defended the court’s ‘shadow docket’ as critics continue labeling the nation’s high court as one controlled by a ‘hidden cabal.’  IF the court is controlled by a shadowy cabal, then it’s a leftist one that constantly threatens to pack the court with loads of leftwing justices.
  97. 2021 Friday Q: Business News– New car sales have fallen by 14-percent in the U.S.  This can, of course, be blamed on the shortage of computer chips.  Friends, globalism does not work; we should have been manufacturing our own chips and never have relied on foreign suppliers.
  98. 2021 Friday R: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1699 what with a $34 million jackpot on the line: 20, 25, 36, 62, 63, and Mega 06.  Stay tuned for info on the winners… Out of 62382 winning tickets, the highest winners were 35 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $509 apiece.
  99. 2022 Saturday: Observation of the Day– The Democrats subscribe to the boneheaded notion that IF one tells a lie long enough and strident enough, those on the receiving end of told lie will come to accept it as the Gospel truth. Thus, we have all this howling, wailing, and gnashing of teeth that numerous Republicans running for office are ‘election deniers, evil election deniers.’  As far as I can recall, Democrats have denied more elections than any other political party in the history of the United States.  As far as I can recall, Democrats have attempted to overturn and corrupt more elections in this country than any other American political party.  The louder they scream this bogus crap- that Joe Biden somehow pulled off the electoral upset of the century the more we know that the modern-day equivalent of the “Know-Nothings” STOLE the 2020 Presidential Election.  Look- everyone knows that the senile, child-gropin’ loser in the White House is illegitimate because KARMA is delivering evidence of that every single day since he forced his way into the White House.  Karma has a way of righting cosmic wrongs and Joe Biden is the biggest ‘cosmic wrong’ our nation has ever seen.  In approximately five weeks, we are going to throw out as many Democrat bums as we possibly can and then some.  In 2024- if ‘Big Brother Joe’ remains in the White House, we are going to send him packing, too, along with that elder-abusing wife of his.  Question: can we just bring back President Trump now and give him his second term as well as a third term?  We must get him back into the White House ASAP and the Democrats must be targeted, ejected, and then persecuted to the ends of the Earth.  God bless you and God bless our country.  Chef Lilah Paulikovich.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Cheap Trick returned to form yet again with their second eponymous album, “Cheap Trick,” popularly referred to as “Cheap Trick ’97.’  The album came out on April 29, 1997, and featured the band sounding like they did twenty years earlier: rockin’ loud and rockin’ hard.  The album features Robin Zander (vocals, guitars, and piano), Rick Nielsen (lead guitar, backing vocals, acoustic guitars, electric saw, and piano), Tom Petersson (bass, backing vocals, acoustic bass, tamboura, and E-bow), and Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion).  The album has 11 smoking tracks (13 if you buy the extended edition), which makes it well worth one’s while to rush out to the nearest record shop and picking it up in the condition, the price, and the format that makes sense to you- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy!

  55. 2009 Wednesday: The Obama regime announces it is going to withdraw 4,000 soldiers out of Iraq by the end of next month.  This will allow terrorist supergroup ISIS to begin growing like a virulent cancer.  Should keep them there, Mr. President.

  62. 2016 Friday:  The United Nations says that the Syrian city of Aleppo is a “Humanitarian Crisis” as peace talks between the Syrian government, its allies, and the ISIS criminals, falters.  People are being bombed, they’re being strafed, they are starving to death, and disease stalks the weakened among them.  And the U.S. military-industrial complex wants the United States to involve itself even deeper in this quagmire.
  63. 2017 Saturday: The Trump administration’s Health and Human Services Director Tom Price resigns his position today after being blasted and criticized for misusing funds.  No proof is ever offered but you know the libs- they never stop.  Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is in Beijing ahead of President Trump’s visit to the communist nation.  Elsewhere, Canadian American game show host, Monty Hall of “Let’s Make a Deal” fame dies at age 96.
  64. 2018 Sunday:  The Federal Bureau of Investigation- after being bullied by Democrats- announces that it is expanding its probe into the supposed wrongdoings of U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.  The Dems are trying to smear the stellar judge in their attempt to deny him a seat on the high court and to repel President Donald J. Trump’s second SCOTUS nominee.
  65. 2019 Monday:  As testimony in the growing impeachment inquiry by the Democrats to take out the 45th president, Donald J. Trump tweets that he should be able to ‘meet the so-called whistleblower’ whom most believe is a lying POS.  The Dems will do everything possible to protect his identity, but we know who he is.   Meanwhile, the “Pro-China Joe” Biden 2020 campaign asks the TV networks to stop booking Rudy Giuliani.   They accuse the president’s lawyer of ‘spreading lies about the candidate and his son, Hunter.’  Funny thing is, on Wednesday, September 23, 2020, the U.S. Senate committee investigating the Bidens and their corruption- especially in the Ukraine and in communist China demonstrate that Hunter’s actions were indeed ‘criminal’ and in need of further investigation.  Not looking good for you, Joe…
  66. 2020 Wednesday: Reviews regarding last night’s first 2020 presidential debate continue coming in with most believing that President Trump was debating not one but two people.  Moderator Chris Wallace- who should be stripped of all future debates- did everything he could to help keep “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s head above the roiling waters.  Today, the former VP is on a ‘train tour,’ running from Cleveland, Ohio, to Johnstown, Pennsylvania.  Crowds are incredibly sparse for the stumbling bumbler.  It would appear that in last night’s debate, President Trump utilized the same strategy he employed in his VP debate with Rep. Paul Ryan, R-WI, Mitt Romney’s vice-presidential pick.  In that ugly 2012 matchup, Biden interrupted, derided, and lampooned Mr. Ryan.  It was ugly, it turned off millions of viewers, but everyone said, “Joe did a hell of a job.”  Whoa.   At least Telemundo, the Spanish language juggernaut in a poll released last night, one we reported, that viewers said Trump won the matchup by an overwhelming 66-percent to 33-percent.  Latinos love their blood sports.  The Atlantic Magazine says the ‘rest of the debates should be canceled.’
  67. 2020 Wednesday A:  In New York City, more than 100,000 mail-in ballots have gone to people with the incorrect information emblazoned on them.  The state says it will make things right; however, what will happen with the messed-up ballots and who will be responsible for their destruction?  Things continue going from bad to worse.   Meanwhile, Glenn Beck reports on his program this morning that in Harris County, Texas, Joe Biden surrogate Dallas Jones was caught red-handed in a scheme to have hirelings fill out more than 700,000 mail-in ballots.  An investigation featuring former federal law enforcement officers busted Jones outright.  We hope this situation can be repaired and that the participants in, yet another fraudulent vote theft shenanigan find themselves busting rocks in Leavenworth, Kansas, for 30 years.
  68. 2020 Wednesday B: Judge Amy Coney Barrett will be meeting with 10 senators on Capitol Hill today even though most Democratic senators are keeping her at arm’s length.   Speaking of Capitol Hill, Lindsey Graham’s Senate committee is grilling fired former FBI Director James “The Saint” Comey virtually today, trying to pull answers from him about the scam of Crossfire Hurricane and the attempt to bring down Donald Trump, both as candidate and as president.  This man must do time in federal prison.  Graham says, ‘what happened at the FBI and the Obama Justice Department is a system failure.’  Elsewhere, the ‘Happiest Place on Earth’- Disneyland- says it will begin laying off 30,000 workers due to the harsh shutdown restrictions imposed upon the entertainment destination by Gov. Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom.  Finally, failed Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer- a woman who keeps her stated in the lockbox while permitting her husband to drive around the state and to take his boat out on whatever lake he chooses- announces that she is extending the CHI-VI lockdown that was set to end tomorrow until at least October 31.  What a pity.
  69. 2020 Wednesday C: A judge in Las Vegas, Nevada, rules that Mandalay Bay Hotel and Resort is liable for the $800 million payout to the victims of the October 31, 2017, mass shooting that occurred on its property.  The shooter, Stephen Paddock, carried load upon load of what turned out to be firearms, ammunition, and surveillance equipment and then began shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival from several adjoining windows 32 floors up.  By the time law enforcement and hotel security got around to storming the hotel room, the damage was done, and the shooter lay dead, slain by his own hand.  Meanwhile, the police chief of Los Angeles, California, says that attacks and assaults on police officers have skyrocketed by 156% from this time in 2019.
  70. 2020 Wednesday D: TV ratings for last night’s first presidential debate are 64 million viewers.  It is interesting to note that the Proud Boys, brought up in last night’s debate by moderator Chris Wallace (a failure and a partisan hack) added Trump’s words to both their logo and t-shirts: “Stand by and stand back.”  No one asks “Pro-China Joe” Biden to disavow Blacks Lives Matter, Resist Fascism, or Antifa.  This leads us to speculate that since the Proud Boys jumped in with the t-shirt, that they are receiving funding from the SAME FINANCIAL SOURCES that are also funding the left-wing groups.  Once again, this confirms to us that the Chi-Coms and their Democratic stooges are the ones funneling money to all these violent groups as it serves their overall purposes: the destabilization of the United States and its institutions.
  71. 2020 Wednesday E: On Neil Cavuto’s show, guest Charlie Gasparino tells Neil that many of his Wall Street friends and colleagues fear substantial changes in tax policy as well as regulations should Joe Biden win in November and has a Democrat House and Senate.  A ‘President Joe Biden’ would return the mandate to the Affordable Care Act which would end full-time employment and return the norm of 28 hours or less per week.   No matter what Dems about say about the humongous economy of the Obama-Biden years, it simply did not exist- Obamacare kept every job ‘part-time’ except for union jobs and they were able to avoid Obamacare costs because the administration gave them carve-outs.   Elsewhere, the Sunday afternoon game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Tennessee Titans has been postponed due to a number of Chi-Vi cases among the Titans.  Stay tuned for further developments.   
  72. 2020 Wednesday F: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a whole– 33,785,178 confirmed cases, UP by 301,058 cases, 1,010,147 confirmed deaths, UP by 6,065 deaths, and 23,448,934 confirmed recoveries, UP by 236,031 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 7,322,022 confirmed cases, UP by 92,463 new cases, 210,123 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,788 new deaths, and 3,920,920 confirmed recoveries, UP by 49,965 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt motherf**kers).  Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 244,494 confirmed cases, 1,569 confirmed deaths, and 174,506 confirmed recoveries.

We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[v]   
  76. 2021 Thursday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 400,671 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 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 3,407 deaths which we expect will come soon which will push the dictator past the death mark the 45th president held.  NOT GOOD, Joe, NOT GOOD.   
  77. 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: 4,632,842 confirmed cases, 69,320 confirmed deaths, and 2,451,046 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 3,616,524 confirmed cases, 55,009 confirmed deaths, and 2,632,074 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 79,206 confirmed cases, 782 confirmed deaths, and 78,424 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 661,007 confirmed cases, 7,786 confirmed deaths, and 272,064 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Wisconsin: they have 810,164 confirmed cases, 8,888 confirmed deaths, and 801,276 confirmed recoveries. [vi]  
  78. 2021 Thursday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 1,282,218 confirmed cases, 7,761 confirmed deaths, and 1,228,147 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Turkey, 6th country on the list: 7,154,070 cases of the virus, 64,054 confirmed death and 6,615,908 confirmed recoveries. [vii]

[x]        
  80. 2021 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.399 per gallon, $3.055 in Florida, $4.080 in Hawaii, and $3.849 in Washington state. [xi]    Let us look at one other Mississippi: $2.818.  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- Norway: $8.013 per U.S. Gallon.[xii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,823,035,177,448 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xiii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Germany, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Bermuda with $73 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  81. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, shared the shocking news today that a tidal wave of 120,000 illegal aliens or more are marching north to the U.S.-Mexico border.  Yet, the Biden regime again is going to court to try to counter the U.S. Supreme Court order demanding the reinstatement of President Donald J. Trump’s highly effective “Remain in Mexico Policy.” Still, the Biden regime is doing everything it can to counter any border controls by trying to get an executive border or a bill shoved through that will restrict border apprehensions and expulsions.  Joe wants EVERY ILLEGAL POS to remain in the country.
  82. 2021 Thursday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Kim Jong Un offered once again to reopen the hotline between North and South Korea while denouncing the ‘hostile actions of the Biden regime.’  Later in the day, the regime celebrated the successful firing of its new antiaircraft missile system.  Meanwhile, on the other side of the globe, a court convicted former French President Nicolas Sarkozy of campaign finance violations.
  83. 2021 Thursday H: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and-Authoritarianism News– GOP senators have joined forces to draft a bill with which to HALT the use of COVID-19 passports by the feds.  Next, United Airlines fires 593 of its employees today because of their refusal to accept the Chi-Vi vaccination. 
  84. 2021 Thursday I: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $43.01 (2) AstraZeneca $60.06 (3) Johnson & Johnson $161.50 (4) BioNTech $272.99 (5) Moderna $384.86.

  89. 2021 Thursday N: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– As Joe Biden’s approval ratings continue plummeting and he is booed at public events, people are gravitating towards the idea that “Kooky Kamala” Harris could be the nation’s next ‘president,’ her poll numbers are beginning to inch up ever so slightly.  Next, an AP-NORC poll shows a deep divide between Americans over Joe Biden’s vaccine mandates.  Democrats now love them (whereas last year, they said anyone who received one would have to be a dimwit) whereas Republicans are skeptical.   Adding to Joe’s woes, former Ambassador Nikki Haley said of Joe Biden turning up at the congressional baseball game that feeble old Joe ‘chose baseball over serious work.’ As if that is NOT bad enough for poor old Joe, Rep. Vicky Hartzler, R-MO 4th CD, said of the recent hearings on Capitol Hill in the Senate and House regarding the debacle in Afghanistan, that ‘it’s clear that Joe Biden lied on the troops and the situation.’
  90. 2021 Thursday O: Political News I– U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, DS-CA 12th CD, is now echoing Joe Biden because she says that the BIG SPENDING BILL will cost the American taxpayers ZERO DOLLARS.  That’s right- ‘Mumbles’ say it will cost NOTHING.  Next, Rep. Cori “The Bitch” Bush, CPUSA-MO 1st CD, is facing ethics problems of her own (Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, aka AOC) because of taking expensive gifts and other benefits that a congressional member is forbidden to do.  Add that to Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DS-MN 5th CD, and her woes over having committed immigration fraud by marrying her brother, and it would appear that the infamous squad is beginning to come apart at the seams.
  91. 2021 Thursday P: Political News II– Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, questioned LinkedIn over its censoring of journalists on behalf of the Chinese Communist Party.  Meanwhile, Special Counsel John Durham announced new subpoenas today for people swept up in the Russian Collusion Scandal, the scheme the Obama regime used to destroy President Trump.  Next, Rep. Jay Obernolte, R-CA 8th CD, told Newsmax today, “Don’t count out Nancy Pelosi’s negotiating skills when it comes to getting the spending bills passed.’
  92. 2021 Thursday Q: U.S. House of Representatives News I– Tensions soared on Capitol Hill today as the Democrats vote to suspend the debt ceiling.  Rep. Tim Burchett, R-TN 2nd CD, said it’s highly likely that U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th CD, will push the vote on the massive spending bill BACK as the old warhorse won’t take anything to the floor unless she has the votes- and the progressives in HER ranks are fighting her tooth and nail.
  93. 2021 Thursday R: U.S. Military News– Sadly, a new report says that suicides among U.S. service members jumped by 15-percent in 2020.  Next, the U.S. Marine who famously hoisted the Afghan baby over the wall at Hamid Karzai International Airport back in August and who spoke- for just a moment and did so NOT in uniform- is now under investigation.  L. Cpl. Hunter Clark is being investigated for appearing briefly at a political rally while his superiors- like Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark A. Milley and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin- can go political all the time, he faces possible disciplinary actions.  Perhaps boneheaded actions such as this could explain why suicides in the U.S. military have gone way UP.  Shame on the leaders, shame.  Rep. Jim Banks, R-IN 3rd CD, says of Chairman Milley that he should have spent more time on Afghanistan and communist China policies than on politics.  Rep. Scott DesJarlais, R-TN 4th CD says, ‘there’s a lot of finger-pointing going on regarding the mess in Afghanistan.’
  94. 2021 Thursday S: Fake News I– ABC News is being slammed for having selectively edited an interview with former President Barack Obama when he said- more or less- that a country cannot survive without borders.  ABC News cut out all comments made by the 44th president regarding the right of the United States to determine who comes in and who does not.  Is there a breach between Joe Biden and his former boss?   Next, CNN finally steps up and admits that the U.S. Border Patrol’s mounted officers were not whipping the poor HAITIAN INVADERS after lying for an entire week about it.
  95. 2021 Thursday T: Sports News I– Tonight’s Thursday Night Football game features the Jacksonville Jaguars (0-3-0) at the Cincinnati Bengals (2-1-0).  The Bengals pulled it out with a field goal beating the Jaguars by a final score of 24-21.  Wow.  We thought the Jags were on the way to their first victory.
  96. 2022 Friday: Observation of the Day As you know, this past Wednesday, the FINAL installment of the January 6 Select House Committee came and went without much import.  These people are so bitter, so demented, and so insane that they think if they keep swinging away at the cast iron Donald J. Trump pinata, that somehow the viewers will say, “Wow.  They really do have something.”  Folks, they don’t have crap.  They can show ‘new video footage’ just as they can show ‘new emails and text messages.’  Oh, boy, we can show you far more because from the video footage we’ve seen on Newsmax, One America News, and even Fox News Channel, it sure looks like all manner of criminality was occurring on the side of the Capitol Hill Police and not the Trump supporters.  I, like most of the rest of my colleagues understand that what we saw on January 6, 2021, looked nothing like Trump supporters but a well-orchestrated mob of Antifa thugs and BLM garbage.  Swirling flags, people dressed in black, people climbing up the sides of the Capitol Building, cops standing idly by or briskly waving in the mob.  They cannot clean this up nor can they convince anyone that what we witnessed that day is different that what we saw.  We know what we saw- we saw an orchestrated coup in the manner of what Erdogan did in Turkey a few years back.  It’s all smoke and mirrors and we all understand that.  Good riddance to the J6 Committee.  I hope they burn in hell.  Chef Lilah Paulikovich.

We all hope and pray that the U.S. Secret Service is protecting President Donald J. Trump and his family well what with an embittered and crazed “Lyin’ Liz” Cheney saying she will stop at nothing to prevent Mr. Trump from becoming president again. This woman is a clear and present danger and the Joestapo must detain her before she attempts to assassinate America’s greatest president

  55. 2006 Friday: Rep. Mark Foley, R-FL 16th congressional district, resigned his seat in the U.S. House of Representatives for doing some Democrats do all the time and seemingly get away with- sending inappropriate emails to a congressional page.  What a double standard but then, Republicans ALWAYS crucify their own.

  58. 2009 Tuesday: As Britain continues its national program of immunizing the hell out of everyone, a 14-year-old schoolgirl who died after being given an immunization for cervical cancer is found to have had a tumor in her heart and lungs.  What is it with forcing immunizations on everyone without checking their health situations?  Socialized medicine, folks, not good, never good, and something every sane nation must avoid.
  59. 2010 Wednesday: For the first time in two years, North and South Korea agree to hold working level military talks.  Elsewhere, in Dagestan, Russian troops get lucky and kill at least 14 Islamist militants in heavy fighting.  Good.  Cover the bodies with pig’s blood.

Take that, communists!
  61. 2012 Saturday:  After the U.S. delists the Mujahedeen-e Khalq as a terrorist entity, Iran accuses the United States of having “double standards.”  Meanwhile, the Obama administration transfers a Gitmo detainee, Omar Khadr, to Canada where the murderous POS jihadist will complete his prison sentence.  
  62. 2013 Sunday: NASA’s newest delivery service, Orbital Sciences Corp.’s un-manned cargo spacecraft Cygnus, made its first-ever shipment to the International Space Station.  Elsewhere, some four-dozen people were shot to death at an agricultural college in Gujba, Nigeria, in an attacked blamed on the Muslim jihadists of Boko Haram.  Next, On This Day reports that a Syrian airstrike on the ISIS capital of Raqqa goes astray and hits a school killing at least 16 people and injuring numerous others.

  64. 2015 Tuesday:  American jazz composer and saxophonist Phil Woods dies at age 83.  Meanwhile, President Barack Hussein Obama announces that he and Russian President Vladimir Putin will convene on what to do in Syria.  We already know what to do: KILL the ISIS, al-Qaida, and Iranian Revolutionary Guard thugs.  ASAP!
  65. 2016 Thursday:  The U.S. Congress overrides the veto of President Barack Hussein Obama that will now allow U.S. citizens to sue Saudi Arabia over the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.  Obama did not want people affected by the horrible attacks from suing the Islamic nation.  All but one of the hijackers were from Saudi Arabia; go figure!
  66. 2017 Friday: Tom Price resigned as President Donald J. Trump’s secretary of health and human services amid investigations into his use of costly charter flights for official travel at taxpayer expense.  Meanwhile, Carmen Yulin Cruz, the mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, accused the Trump administration of “killing us with the inefficiency” after Hurricane Maria.  We must note that Mayor Cruz is a corrupt politician who was unable to distribute the vast resources that poured into the island following the storm.   Finally, the U.S. issues a no-travel warning to its citizens NOT to go to Cuba due to the ongoing sonic attacks on American citizens.  It also calls home some of the diplomatic staff in Havana thanks to the scurrilous behavior of the communist Cubans.
  67. 2018 Saturday: Tesla and its CEO, Elon Musk, agreed to pay $40 million to settle a government lawsuit alleging that Musk had duped investors with misleading statements about a proposed buyout of the company.   Elsewhere, some left-wing news sites report widespread demonstrations against center-right Brazilian businessman Jair Bolsonaro, the frontrunner in the presidential elections.  Go, Bolsonaro, go!
  68. 2019 Sunday:  Pro-Iranian Houthi rebels do a celebratory dance claiming they killed 500 Saudi soldiers, captured another 2,000, as well as wiped out a supply convoy on Saudi territory in the Najran region of the country.  Time to nuke Iran and to wipe out the Houthi scumbags. 
  69. 2020 Tuesday: A new PEW Poll shows that five percent of Trump and Biden voters MIGHT have their votes changed following tonight’s Round 1 2020 Presidential Debate in Cleveland, Ohio, depending upon who does better.  Meanwhile, Democratic Party presidential nominee “Pro-China Joe” Biden disputes he ever agreed to (1) a break after every 30 minutes and (2) that he agreed to an ear canal check to determine if either participant is wearing an ear device.  Many believe that “Gropin’ Joe” Biden cannot sustain 90 minutes of debate and that he will be seeking every avenue of support or escape.  Rush Limbaugh still speculates that something will arise that will permit “Pro-China Joe” a way out without losing face.  Dr. Jill going to come down with a sudden case of the CHI-VI?  We shall see.  Speaking of Cleveland, shop owners are boarding up windows and securing their facilities as the danger of violent mob ‘protests,’ i.e., out-of-control riots looms ever larger.  Another ‘anti-fascist group,’ Resist Fascism arrives in Cleveland ostensibly to fight against fascism but to serve as the Democratic Party’s Brown Shirts.
  70. 2020 Tuesday A: Judge Amy Coney Barrett arrives on Capitol Hill to begin meeting with lawmakers ahead of October 12 and the first day of confirmation hearings.  At least 6-8 Senate Democrats announce they won’t meet with her as a means of protest.  Meanwhile, New York City schools begin the reopening process as Mayor Bill Di Blasio continues to threaten JEWISH neighborhoods with complete shutdowns if they don’t toe the line and follow his orders.  Speaking of major cities such as New York City, we learn that since June of this year, violent crime rates have soared 53-percent over last year’s rates at the same time.  Clever work, Democrats, clever work.   Elsewhere, on the West Coast, major parts of Sonoma and Napa Counties are ablaze, once again thanks to rampant mismanagement by California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom.  Like Nero, he continues fiddling, trying to find ways by which, he can continue funding CalPERS at the expense of caring for the state’s forests.  This man must be removed from office before 2022.  Now.
  71. 2020 Tuesday B: Kuwait’s Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad Al-Sabah dies at age 91.  Meanwhile, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson severs his ties with more than 95-percent of his fans by coming out and following communist China’s dictates and endorses the Biden-Harris 2020 ticket.  Rock- you are not only a sleazy opportunist, but you also appear to be a shill for Beijing.  NO MORE ROCK MOVIES! Meanwhile, attorney for Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn- Sidney Powell- updated President Trump on his former National Security Advisor’s case and asked that ‘he not pardon the general.’  She is trying to get Judge Emmet Sullivan to recuse himself from the case or accept the Justice Department’s recommendations to drop the collapsed case. Elsewhere, Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe releases fabulous footage that shows ALLEGEDLY Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar!” Omar has operatives involved in ballot creation and ballot harvesting.  We hear from sources on the ground in Minnesota that she could very well lose her re-election bid.  Strip her of her citizenship and return her crooked butt to Somalia.
  72. 2020 Tuesday C: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a whole– 33,484,120 confirmed cases, UP by 327,308 cases, 1,004,082 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,386 deaths, and 23,212,633 confirmed recoveries, UP by 251,197 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 7,229,559 confirmed cases, UP by 23,692 new cases, 208,335 confirmed deaths, UP by 217 new deaths, and 3,870,955 confirmed recoveries, UP by 7,882 new recoveries. 
  73. 2020 Tuesday D: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 816,095 confirmed cases, 15,683 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 12,351 confirmed cases, 132 confirmed deaths, and 10,215 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 90,712 confirmed cases, 2,203 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 462,364 confirmed number of cases, 32,743 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.   The governor of New York, the drooling moron Andrew Cuomo continues trying to blame President Donald J. Trump for all the Xi Jinping Bat Flu deaths when he is the one who sent COVID-infected people into rest homes where the most vulnerable people are, uh, we mean, were. PUT CUOMO ON TRIAL! 
  74. 2020 Tuesday E: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there.  Here they are: 233,265 confirmed cases, 1,507 confirmed deaths, and 165,191 confirmed recoveries.  Watch out for the Chi-Com rockets the Hamas goons love firing at innocent Israelis.  We know you are prepared Mo!
  75. 2020 Tuesday F: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,452.66, DOWN 131.40 points (-0.48%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,085.25, DOWN 32.28 points (-0.29%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,335.47, DOWN 16.13 points (-0.48%).  The price of GOLD is $1,903.10 per troy oz., -0.10 (-0.01%) while the price of SILVER is $24.42 per troy ounce, -0.002 (-0.08%).  The price of PLATINUM is $882.60 per troy oz, -4.90 (-0.55%) while the price of COPPER is $3.00 per pound, +0.009 (+0.30%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,329.30 per troy oz., +57.80 (+2.54%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $39.13 per barrel, -0.16 (–0.41%).  Today, COCOA is $2,565.00 per metric ton, +3.00 (+0.12).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.82 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.85 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency, a known fact which is why the world must disengage with them and bring our supply chain home- ASAP.
  76. 2020 Tuesday G: National Security Director John Ratcliffe released information in a letter to Sen. Lindsey Graham- on the eve of testimony by fired FBI Director James Comey- that Hillary Clinton approved a plan with the Obama administration.  The illegal operation the two cooked up together sought to dirty 2016 GOP presidential candidate Donald J. Trump by tying him to Russian intelligence services.  The question is whether then Director Comey expended the same amount of effort investigating Hillary Clinton as he spent investigating then-candidate Trump, then president- elect Trump, and finally President Donald J. Trump.  Not looking good for the Obamaists coup plotters.  Is prison looming large on the horizon?   Join the Trump Third Term Movement NOW.
  77. 2020 Tuesday H: Regarding to Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court, here is today’s Democratic Party’s and Fake News Media Attack Phrase of the Day: “Illegitimate.”
  78. 2020 Tuesday I: Tonight, is the first debate between presidential contenders, President Donald J. Trump, and former Vice President Joseph R. Biden.  About half-way through the ‘grudge match,’ it would appear that Mr. Biden is managing to survive the ongoing assault from the president.  Moderator Chris Wallace is struggling to maintain control.  We believe- at this junction- that Democrats will say the president is losing due to his belligerence while Republicans will say the president was aggressive and fending off both the former veep and the moderator. This update at 6:48 P.M.  What we will say is the following: it’s an UGLY affair, no-holds barred mud wrestling at its worst.   
  79. 2020 Tuesday I: Update @ 07:39 p.m.: what a rough 96-minute debate.  President Trump allowed the anger built up after 3.5 years to unload on a feeble Vice President Biden.  The former veep managed to remain upright but towards the end of the debate, he was looking a bit wasted.  We suspect the Democrat will cancel the other two debates.  Winner?  We think the president allowed his anger to get the better of him and the former vice president did not drop dead.  What an ugly mess…
  80. 2020 Tuesday J:  Telemundo, the Spanish language media giant released a poll from the first debate between President Donald J. Trump and former Vice President Joe R. Biden.  The poll says President Trump won by a 66-percent margin to 33-percent for Mr. Biden.  Wow.  You go, Spanish speakers!   We have no clue as to what mischief the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party stooges will be up today but when we find out, you’ll find out so please, stay tuned for further developments such as the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu…
  81. 2021 Wednesday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a whole– 234,031,070 confirmed cases, +551,457, 4,787,486 confirmed deaths, +10,359 and 210,856,434 confirmed recoveries, +615,696.

  82. 2021 Wednesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 397,777 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 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 6,301 deaths which we expect will come soon which will push the dictator past the death mark the 45th president held.  NOT GOOD, Joe, NOT GOOD.

[xii]  
  84. 2021 Wednesday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 1,277,270 confirmed cases, 7,732 confirmed deaths, and 1,220,396 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Russia, 5th country on the list: 7,487,138 cases of the virus, 206,388 confirmed death and 6,653,941 confirmed recoveries. [xiii]     
  85. 2021 Wednesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,390.72, UP 90.73 points (+0.26%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,512.44 DOWN 34.24 points (-0.24%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,359.46, UP 6.83 points (+0.16%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $74.79 per barrel, -0.04 (-0.05%).  The price of GOLD is $1,732.20 per troy oz., +9.10 (+0.53%) while the price of SILVER is $21.52 per troy ounce, +0.03 (+0.16%).  The price of PLATINUM is $952.90 per troy oz, +8.60 (+0.91%) while the price of COPPER is $4.20 per pound, +0.00 (+0.05%).

The price of RHODIUM is $14,500.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (+0.00%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $777,500.00 per CNY/T, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $2,913.75 per USD/T, +2.25 (+0.08%). [xv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000023.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.86 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.47.    In Mongolian Tughrik, one greenback equals 2,830.00 and in Moroccan Dirham, a buck equal 9.04 and in Mozambican Metical, one dollar equals 63.20 of theirs.[xvi]        
  86. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.397 per gallon, $3.057 in Florida, $4.074 in Hawaii, and $3.850 in Washington state. [xvii]    Let us look at one other Missouri: $2.853.  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- Israel: $7.709 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,819,205,239,855 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xix]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Thailand, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Germany with $75 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  87. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 188 for the famed ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of defending the U.S.-Mexico border from one legion after another of Third World illegal alien invaders and Day No. 95 since her sole visit anywhere NEAR the border.  Where is the esteemed ‘Border Czar?’  Ah, well, Texas border counties are preparing to hammer the Biden regime with a massive lawsuit over its lack of desire to enforce the laws and to defend the nation.  Most of these people living in these counties are Latinos who happen to vote Democrat.  Just saying.
  88. 2021 Wednesday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I– The Putin regime opens a new case against imprisoned Putin dissident, Alexei Navalny.  Meanwhile, North Korea claims the development of its new hypersonic missile is for DEFENSIVE needs rather than for offensive capabilities.  Next, we have some Chi-Com news for you today: first, there will be NO overseas visitors to the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics which we hope no one sends athletes to due to the Chi-Coms infecting the entire world with the Xi Jinping Never-Ending Pandemic.  Secondly, the Chi-Com air force commander issued a veiled threat to the U.S. military: “Let us meet in the skies.”  Chi-Coms, shut the f**k up.
  89. 2021 Wednesday H: Health and Medical Alerts– A new poll says that 65-percent of Americans oppose loss of jobs for those opposed to submitting to COVID-19 vaccine mandates.  Agreed.  Another poll says that more than half of the American people do not really believe that current Chi-Vi vaccines are appropriate for children, especially those 5-11 years of age.  Meanwhile, GOP senators introduce the new TREAT Act designed to counter the rationing of the drug Regeneron by the Biden regime who is cutting supplies to Red States.
  90. 2021 Wednesday I: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions and Authoritarianism News– Los Angeles County, California, is considering new rules/regulations for all customers going to bars and restaurants: they want COVID-19 vaccine passports or NO service.  Meanwhile, a judge in South Carolina slaps a temporary stay on enacting bans on the wearing of masks among school-aged children.  BIG GOVERNMENT wants to impose the wearing of masks on everyone.  Next, we learn that in the BIG SPENDING BILL the House speaker and her Democrat minions are promoting, there’s a big $700,000 fine for businesses NOT complying with the vaccine decrees.  Finally, the Kathy Hochul regime in New York is in the process of firing healthcare workers who did not meet the September 27, 2021, deadline to vaccinate or go on the public dole (which we believe will be cut off by government IF workers won’t vaccinate.  This is evil.  This is the Mark of the Beast and folks it looks like Joe Biden is indeed the Antitrump).
  91. 2021 Wednesday J: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $43.53 (2) AstraZeneca $59.67 (3) Johnson & Johnson $164.02 (4) BioNTech $277.44 (5) Moderna $378.90.

  96. 2021 Wednesday O: Joe Biden Regime News I– Mob mouthpiece White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki tried to cover up for her missing-in-action, senile boss today by claiming the Three Stooges- Milley, McKenzie, and Austin- gave the dictator split opinions on what to do.  Jen, this in no way clears your boss; the man has NO clue as to what he is told much less as what to do.  Meanwhile, as the mainstream media- i.e., the fake news media- continues trying to cover for the botched Afghan withdrawal on behalf of the Biden regime, they, too, are taking increased incoming fire from across the country and around the world.  Embarrassing.
  97. 2021 Wednesday P: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– The U.S. Department of Justice continues to aid the FALSE FLAG OPERATION conducted by House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi by delaying the trials of the political prisoners scooped up on January 06, 2021, and in the immediate days and weeks following the set-up event.  They claim the delays are based upon ‘procedural issues.’  Oh, really?  Speaking of this sham subcommittee, the chairman and his thugs are sending out a flurry of subpoenas to former advisers and staffers of President Donald J. Trump.  They are attempting to make life as difficult as possible for these brave patriots.
  98. 2021 Wednesday Q: Political News I– Parents of imprisoned USMC Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller- who merely spoke his mind on the Afghan debacle- want both U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark A. (Asshole) Milley to resign over their far too many failures while running the show on behalf of senile Joe Biden.  Meanwhile, at the hearing before the House Armed Services Committee today, the Three Stooges- Secretary Austin, Chairman Milley, and U.S. Central Command commander General McKenzie- were torn asunder by one Republican politician (with the exception of Liz Cheney who praised and defended the Three Stooges) for their failures connected to the withdrawal from Afghanistan.  Democrats did their best to circle the wagons around these three dunces but defending them proved to be impossible.  All three men must submit their resignations by the end of today.   Still, brave, patriotic souls such as Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district, told the Three Stooges that ‘IF their commander in chief was NOT so out of it, all three of them would be FIRED.’  This led to angry Democrats apologizing to the three losers for the words of their conservative colleague.  Oh, wah, wah, wah!
  99. 2021 Wednesday R: Political News II– House Democrats continue trying to avert a federal government shutdown which- if it happens- will attach to them like the lips of a remora to the balls of a swimmer.  Thus, they are attempting to set up a vote with which to jack up the debt ceiling still more which will fall atop our children’s children’s children.  Speaker “Mumbles” Pelosi, the nonagenarian leader of the House socialists, is doing her best to move forward with a vote on jacking up the debt ceiling.  In other shocking news, the Democrats now want to RAPE- i.e., TAX the retirement plans of the American people while providing all sorts of freebies to illegal aliens flooding into the United States.
  100. 2021 Wednesday S: Political News III– Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says he is MORE outraged than ever after hearing Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark A. (Asshole) Milley’s testimony than ever.’  All the man does is lie his ass off- Gen. Milley.  He’s a political general and nothing good ever happens to them.  Speaking of General Milley, he alluded to the fact that come spring of 2022, al-Qaida and the Taliban could commence new operations in the region.   Meanwhile, Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN- a fighter if ever one existed- demanded that ‘transcripts between General Milley and his reporter pals must be produced to the Senate Armed Services Committee.’  General Milley also had to fend off attacks on him for having said that ‘Newsmax and The Epoch Times are akin to terrorists.’  Wow.  Finally, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says, ‘he did NOT know about General Milley’s phone calls with his opposites in the Chinese Communist Party.’  We suspect NO one knew what this traitorous POS Milley was up to, friends.  Secretary Pompeo told journalist Megan Kelly that ‘NO one briefed him’ on this questionable action.
  101. 2021 Wednesday T: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3599 what with a $21 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 12, 13, 16, 17, 22, and Mega 06.  Out of 107,152 winning tickets, the highest winners were THREE people who had FIVE numbers for a prize of $12,680 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at (1) ARCO AM/PM in Stockton, CA 95210; (2) Paradise Valley Produce Market in Spring Valley, CA 91977; and (3) Speedway in Carlsbad, CA 92011.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #891 with a jackpot of $570 million up for grabs: 02, 07, 11, 17, 32, and Powerball 11.  Out of 197,406 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $1,361,359.  The winning ticket was sold at a 7-Eleven in Yuba City, CA 95993.
  102. 2022 Thursday: Observation of the Day I hope the Secret Service is maintaining a watchful eye on that big overweight bull dyke, “Lyin’ Liz” Cheney.  After all, she said, that ‘she will do anything to stop President Donald J. Trump from returning to the White House.”  That tells me she is crazy enough to stalk him and to take him out should he win the nomination in 2024 and/or win the White House later that fall.  Hatred like this only occurs on the left side of the aisle.  After all, they are the ones who now label MAGA supporters as ‘Nazis.’  Like Senator John McCain (good riddance), Liz Cheney is NO Republican even though she like he has/had an ‘R’ by their name.  No, Liz Cheney has drunk from the poisoned well of Jim Jones’ cyanide-laced Kool-Aid and her hatred grows for the 45th president grows more strident by the day.  Thankfully, her career- other than as a babbling head on MSNBC- is OVER.  The voters of Wyoming showed her the door by an electoral landslide of more than 30 points.  She is loser and will soon be gone.  Let us hope she realizes her time in the limelight is over and that she will sulk off into the D.C. swamp to enjoy whatever is left of her bitter life.  I just hope that the Secret Service is on the ball because this woman is a lunatic.  Chef Lilah Paulikovich.

270. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2022

Many Hawaiian voters fell for the line that Trump is NO GOOD. Well, after suffering beneath the tyrant currently residing in the White House, GOP voter registrations are shooting up as high as Haleakala. We plan to restore our state to the Red column in November.

  57. 2017 Wednesday: President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans unveiled the first major revamp of the nation’s tax code in a generation, a plan that included deep tax cuts for corporations, simplified tax brackets and a near doubling of the standard deduction.  So far, the tax cuts have proven successful and millions of Americans around the country have benefitted greatly from them.  Meanwhile, the scientific journal “Nature” publishes an article on the giant tree-dwelling rat of the Solomon Islands, the ‘Vika,’ an animal capable of cracking open coconuts.  Folks, everything grows bigger in the Tropics.
  58. 2018 Thursday: In the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee, the accuser of Brett Kavanaugh- Dr. Christine Blasey Ford- sat before the committee members and laid out her allegations against Judge Kavanaugh with little emotion or credibility although the Democrats circled all around her proclaiming her to be a fantastic witness.  Then, when Judge Kavanaugh sat before them, he lambasted the Democrats on the committee for making it all about politics and for destroying his family.  In the end, the Judge appeared to be far more credible and produced evidence identifying his whereabouts on any given day.  The Democrats are causing problems once again and carried their attacks on the Judge to the next day during a committee vote to move the nomination to the full Senate.  Elsewhere, famed vocalist with the Jefferson Airplane[vi] and Jefferson Starship- Marty Balin- died on this date in Tampa Bay, Florida.  Marty was just 76 and had suffered a heart attack.  Following improper care after open heart surgery, he passed for good.

  60. 2020 Sunday: In New York City, Mayor Bill “I’m a Moron” Di Blasio- a man who wants to be an absolute dictator- threatens to close everything down- especially Jewish neighborhoods of Queens and Brooklyn- because according to him, these area businesses and private schools are spreading the Chi-Vi to everyone else in the city.  Meanwhile, Democratic presidential candidate “Pro-China Joe” Biden holds an extremely brief public appearance today in which, he bashed President Trump and his SCOTUS pick and mumbles something about ‘the last thing we need right now is the equivalent of a coup.’  He then takes four brief questions and goes off stage.  One thing the former vice president said in his speech about the SCOTUS pick is that ‘it’s unfair to millions of voters who have already cast their votes.’  You heard it straight from the jackass’ mouth: EARLY VOTING MUST STOP- it’s bogus.  When “Gropin’ Joe” answered questions, he urged GOP Senate members to do the ‘right thing’ when it comes to holding the vote for Amy Coney Barrett.  Meanwhile, Texas finds itself battling brain-eating amoebas in at least six counties.   Finally, dictator-for-life Xi Jinping brushes off criticism of ‘rampant human rights abuses’ and says the communist country is committed to making ‘good Chinese citizens out of the Uighur Muslims in western China and will continue forcing them to assimilate no matter what the other nations of the world say against them.’ Okay, Mr. Dictator, you are going to bulldoze them into becoming ‘good Chinese’ just as you have been doing to the Tibetan people since the late 1950s?  What a great country, one that observes human rights.  Yeah, right.
  61. 2020 Sunday A: The United Nations announces that the Houthi rebels and the Saudi-led coalition of anti-Iranian scumbags will conduct a prisoner swap of 1,000 or more prisoners.   There is hope that peace may be achieved and soon.  We suspect that as more Arab and Muslim nations begin recognizing the right of Israel to exist, the Iranian hegemony will begin to dwindle.  Meanwhile, Armenia and Azerbaijan engage in some border scuffles resulting in the loss of military vehicles and aircraft.    Finally, at the White House, President Donald J. Trump addresses reporters and asks the assembled hostile throng as to ‘WHY no one wants to know about the corruption of “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his son, Hunter, when it comes to harvesting hundreds of millions of dollars from the Chi-Coms, the Russians, and other leftist-Marxist global actors.’  News Media: HOW COME you don’t ask these questions?  Why did Hunter Biden receive $3.5 million from the wife of Moscow, Russia’s mayor?  For what?  His boudoir services- wow.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 392,941 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 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 11,137 deaths which we expect will come soon which will push the dictator past the death mark the 45th president held.  NOT GOOD, Joe, NOT GOOD.

[xiv]    Let us look at one other Michigan: $3.239.  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- Greece: $7.555 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,811,541,882,791 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xvi]  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 France, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Norway with $88 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  71. 2021 Monday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News- As word of more and more crimes being committed by Afghan ‘refugees’ rushed into the country and rapidly dispersed around it by the Biden regime arise, Rep. Tom Tiffany, R-WI 7th congressional district, says ‘criminal activity among unvetted Afghans is predictable.’  Speaking of this criminal activity, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says that ‘an unsecured Fort Bliss is unable to stop Afghan refugees and HAITIAN INVADERS from melting away into the local community and across the country.’  In other Afghan-related news, former Director of National Intelligence Rick Grenell says that Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Mark A. (Asshole) Milley and U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin must answer questions on WHY Bagram air base was abandoned and handed over to the Taliban.  The ‘Two Stooges’ will testify before the House tomorrow and then the Senate on Wednesday.  In other Afghan aftermath news, approximately 100 Americans and green card holders are set to leave the crumbling country.  (Note- Afghan barbers are NO longer permitted to cut men’s beards as that is not in keeping with their beloved ‘Prophet’).
  72. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Over the weekend, an unapologetic U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas told left-wing journalists that ‘as many as 17,000 HAITIAN INVADERS have been seeded across the United States.’  Meanwhile, as we learn another invasion force of approximately 20,000-30,000 HAITIAN INVADERS are marching up from Central America to the U.S.-Mexico border, President Donald J. Trump took a direct verbal jab into the craggy face of senile Joe Biden by saying the “U.S. is the laughingstock of the globe.’  By the way- today is Day No. 186 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be monitoring the southern border and Day No. 93 since the one day she showed up to do her job.
  73. 2021 Monday H: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– Hospitals around the country are facing staffing shortages as ill-advised Chi-Vi vaccine mandates are willingly imposed across the country and nurses, technicians, and doctors refuse to take them.  Thus, we have a push in far too many towns, cities, and even states to bring in OUTSIDE healthcare workers to make up the shortages.  Of course, these noncitizens- like the ones pouring across the border- won’t have to provide proof of vaccination.  The Biden regime is destroying America’s healthcare system.

  78. 2021 Monday M: President Donald J. Trump News– A new Mackinac straw poll shows that among the GOP, President Donald J. Trump is a 2-to-1 favorite among likely voters.  Still, if you partake of online news exclusively, you will see that it is almost mirror opposite which is why you should receive your news- and commentary- from the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day.  You know where we’re coming from, and you can make up your mind for yourselves.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump says that HAITIAN INVADERS ‘are being released into the U.S. with NO vetting or checking.’  True, absolutely true.  Speaking of Trump, he had more than 20,000 people at his rally in Georgia on Saturday. How many fervent supporters would a slobbering Joe Biden attract?   Turd that he is, he couldn’t even attract flies.
  79. 2021 Monday N: Joe Biden News I– Dictator Joe Biden ordered Iran either to grant access to U.N. inspectors of its workshops or face disciplinary action in the IAEA- the International Atomic Energy Agency- of the United Nations.  Meanwhile, the Washington Examiner reports that ‘Joe Biden lied about the cost of his ‘build back better’ agenda.’  No surprise to us- the man is a liar.  Still, his good buddy, Barack Hussein Obama, says he ‘supports taxing the rich to pay for the Biden agenda’ (because it’s the OBAMA agenda, folks).  Meanwhile, after mumbling a few words to the press, the senile groper in charge of the country sat down in a chair, rolled up a sleeve, and received a jab in his arm of what he claimed to be the Xi Jinping Bat Flu ‘booster shot.’  (Note- wouldn’t it be crazy if old Joe had an adverse reaction to this stuff and uh, went to the other side?  It’s not like he has any use any more other than to drum up sympathy so the Dems can really crack down on the American people.  Of course, we hope NOTHING happens to the poor old coot).
  80. 2021 Monday O: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– A new Rasmussen poll says that Joe Biden’s numbers continue tanking what with 42-percent approving of his botched actions while 56-percent vociferously oppose his fascist actions.  In our learned view, Joe’s numbers are most likely 10-15 points LOWER than reported which means Americans of all political backgrounds and persuasions oppose this loser’s actions.  Add to that the fact that stumbling Joe Biden acknowledged that his agenda ‘may not be passed this week.’  Thank God, the American people are resisting.
  81. 2021 Monday P: U.S. House of Representatives News I– U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi has set September 30 as the day of the vote on the trillion dollar bills the Biden regime and “Mumbles” are trying to ramrod through both houses of Congress and onto senile Joe Biden’s desk.  Next, the House passed the Defense bill by a final vote of 316-113 (134 Republicans voting in favor) which includes forcing all American young women to register for the draft as their male counterparts do).   The spending bill is having problems as is the raising of the debt ceiling.
  82. 2021 Monday Q: U.S. Senate News I– The Senate Republicans are in lockstep against voting for the Democrats’ massive spending package, one that will cost the U.S. 5.3 million jobs and add another $3.5 trillion in overall debt to the American people.  As Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer, DS-NY, tried to pass a temporary spending bill through, by a vote of 48-50, the bill went down to smoldering defeat.  “Cryin’ Chuck” was in a state of shock believing he had the necessary votes to pass this garbage bill through to fruition.
  83. 2021 Monday R: Popular Culture News– The Rolling Stones[xvii] have opened their North American tour and are paying homage to the late, great Charlie Watts, their drummer.  In other news, R & B singer R. Kelly found himself convicted in his sex trafficking case.  Will he go to the slammer, or will he be given a slap on the wrist?  Next, singer Rihanna has upset her fellow leftists by being seen wearing a t-shirt with the slogan, THINK WHILE IT’S STILL LEGAL” emblazoned across the front.  Good for you.
  84. 2021 Monday S: Sports News I– In tonight’s Monday Night Football matchup, the Eagles went to Dallas to play the Cowboys.  The Cowboys (2-1-0) clobbered the hapless Eagles (1-2-0) by a final score of 41-21.  Whoa.
  85. 2021 Monday T: Moron News I– After a big show last week of two ‘View’ hosts being yanked off the set prior to the arrival of “Kooky Kamala” Harris due to ‘positive COVID-19 tests,’ the two skanks returned to the show today.  Apparently, the tests were wrong as most of them seem to be.  It would be awesome if all of the skanks were struck dumb and unable to talk, especially Joy Behar and that stupid dingbat Sunny Hostin.  Talk about a moron!  (Note to Sunny- you don’t need to pancake the makeup on your face- look your age).  In other moron news, ultra-far-leftist Rep. Karen Bass, DS-CA 37th congressional district, announces she is ‘all in running for mayor of Los Angeles.’  Wow.
  86. 2021 Monday U: California Lottery Results-Powerball Monday Night Draw– here are the results for the Powerball Draw #890 with a jackpot of $545 million up for grabs: 21, 22, 39, 44, 60, and Power 12.  In California, out of 138,374 winning tickets in the tarnished Golden State, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $37,215 apiece.
  87. 2022 Tuesday: Observation of the Day There is a growing sentiment among Hawaii citizens that President Donald J. Trump is better for the nation than the head of cauliflower currently inhabiting the White House- fraudulently, I would say.  When Trump was president, many Aloha State voters fell victim to the negative spin the Democrats twirled before our eyes and ears about how bad he was (although I, your host, never believed that).  Now, under the control of the corrupt politician and his cronies running our nation, many voters in the state no longer believe it and that is why Democrats are crossing the Great Divide and becoming Republicans.  Friends, we are working hard to save our state and should you care to help us, make sure you to donate to the Hawaii GOP.  We would love to see President Donald J. Trump come to our beautiful island chain and hold a rally the likes of which has never been seen.  He could hold it Aloha Stadium in Honolulu on a Saturday night after the big swap meet.  It would be so ono.  Chef Lilah Paulikovich.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0965 a 20” x 16” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Calistoga Cottage.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclee, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from Cheap Trick is the one that pushed them across the finish line as far as being superstars.  On February 19, 1994, Cheap Trick released their next live album, “Budokan II.”  This album features more of the tracks that were left off the original album.  This is perhaps one of the all-time best live albums to come out of the 1970’s and would be up there with “Frampton Comes Alive” as a mega-seller.  Once again, the lineup is the same quartet of Rick Nielsen (guitars, backing vocals), Robin Zander (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Tom Petersson (bass, backing vocals), and Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion).  We hope that everyone will visit their favorite site for the absolute best in rock music and will then add it to your never-ending, forever-growing collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-approved music and DVDs- you will be glad you did.

  58. 2017 Saturday: Substantial amounts of federal aid began moving into Puerto Rico to help communities still without fresh water, fuel, electricity, or phone service in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump withdraws the invitation for the Golden State Warriors to visit the White House after Step Curry made some negative remarks about the president and said he did not want to attend.  Step- you’re a loser.
  59. 2018 Sunday:  New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees becomes the all-time greatest pass leader, surpassing Brett Favre’s record of 6,300 completions.  The 39-year-old quarterback set the new record with a 17-yard pass to Michael Thomas in a game in which the Saints beat the Atlanta Falcons by a final score of 43-37.  Across the globe in India, Prime Minister Narendra Modi launches “Modicare,” FREE healthcare for 500 million people, the world’s largest healthcare program.  Note- just because YOU have healthcare does not mean it’s quality healthcare.   
  60. 2019 Monday: Famed lyricist for the Grateful Dead- Robert Hunter- died at age 78 at his home in San Rafael, California.  Meanwhile, in New York City, climate ‘hacktivist’ Greta Thunberg[viii] scolds world leaders at the UN Climate Action Summit telling them, “How dare you!” for not doing enough to combat global warming.  Folks, this poor, poor child is indoctrinated, her mind is as warped as were members of the Hitler Jugend in Nazi Germany.  Someone somewhere please de-program this poor girl.
  61. 2020 Wednesday: The U.S. Senate is busy today what holding the confirmation hearings for Acting Homeland Security Director Chad Wolf as well as the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pension Committee’s hearings on COVID-19 and how the fight is going here in the United States.  FDA boss Dr. Stephen Hahn told the committee that the ‘Food and Drug Administration will not approve or authorize an Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine until medical professionals feel it is safe enough to distribute to their own families.’  Debate continues as to how soon we will have the vaccine available.  We will wait and see.  Meanwhile, Vladimir Putin’s Russia continues braying they have a Chinese Virus vaccine and are going to distribute it.  Folks, a Fox News Channel poll suggests that 35-percent of Americans won’t get the vaccine when it’s available (thanks to goobers like “Pro-China Joe” Biden and losers like Kooky Kamala saying they WON’T get it ‘cos we don’t trust the Orange Man).  Friends, IF the Russkies have a vaccine, it’s going to be as beneficial as Novichok so avoid anything coming out of the former Soviet Union.
  62. 2020 Wednesday A: Deceased U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is lying in repose at the Supreme Court building, this being her first day.  She will lie there tomorrow and will then- on Friday- become the first woman ever to lie in state at the U.S. Capitol.  Sobbing mobs of North Korean-like followers stumble past her lifeless body paying their respects as though she is some sort of despot laid out and everyone ordered to turn out to make it seem as though she had an amazing following.  The Dems, after all, demand WE MUST RESPECT HER ‘FINAL’ WISHES that another president besides #45 nominate her replacement.   
  63. 2020 Wednesday B: Meanwhile, President Trump is honoring the surviving veterans of the Bay of Pigs fiasco of the early 1960s when President John F. Kennedy made a half-assed attempt at toppling Cuban communist dictator Fidel Castro.  God bless you guys!  Elsewhere, Democratic senators are wailing and whining that ‘GOP senators have promised to vote for whomever the replacement for Ruth Bader Ginsburg sight unseen will be.’  Wah, wah, wah: LOOK- Dems, you are already vilifying whomever the nominee is going to be sight unseen so STFU!  This means YOU, Sen. Chris Murphy, D-CT.  Enough is enough!
  64. 2020 Wednesday C: In order to placate angry mobs of Black Lives Matter and Antifa goons, Uncle Ben’s rice is changing its name AND removing its iconic image.  The new name will be “Ben’s Original.”  So long, Ben, you and Aunt Jemima can now spend the rest of your days on vacation.  We love you!  Elsewhere, Louisville, Kentucky, continues bracing for possible mob violence once the Grand Jury’s report into the untimely demise of Breonna Taylor at the hands of city cops hits newsstands.  Look, we believe that had they NOT had a NO KNOCK WARRANT and had Taylor’s boyfriend not started slinging lead at the cops, she would be alive today, plain, and simple.  The boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, played a major role in this fiasco so folks, stop with the mob violence.   Update: The Grand Jury indicts Officer Brett Hankison on three counts of wanton endangerment.  We shall see what we shall see… Second update: Antifa and Black Lives Matter seen unloading riot gear from a U-Haul truck 15 minutes away from the grand jury site.  Trouble on the way- expect out of control violent mob riots by sundown.
  65. 2020 Wednesday D: Billionaire neo-leftist Michael Bloomberg, former candidate for the 2020 Democratic Party’s 2020 presidential nomination finds himself in a brewing S-storm over his personal paying of the fines of 32,000 felons of color in exchange for them voting Democrat on November 3.  This is an example of a quid pro quo that might get the billionaire member of the #MeToo Club into legal trouble.  Go for it, Florida Department of Justice! 
  66. 2020 Wednesday E: Meanwhile, a U.S. Senate committee chaired by Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, finds both former Vice President “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his son, the erstwhile Hunter, culpable of wrongdoing in the Ukraine.  This alone should drive the senile elder Biden from the race and send his son to prison for engaging in corruption, self-enrichment, and possible crimes.  Finally, Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom announces that by 2035, NO MORE GAS-FUELED cars and trucks will be sold.  He claims this will improve the environment of the state.  Question, Governor Newsom: where will the power for these vehicles originate?  Wind and solar farms?  You are trying to lay off massive taxes on renewable energy sources in November so WTF is wrong with you?

  71. 2020 Wednesday J: EVIL CHI-COM NEWSWe now know that a recent report condemns the Chi-Coms for their behavior in occupied Tibet, a Buddhist country and one they have kept imprisoned in their orbit for decades, enslaving the people, forcing them to surrender their culture, their language, and their ways under threat of violence and death.  The Chi-Coms swear this ‘not so, Joe,’ but we know the fascist government in Beijing is cruel, trying to force the Tibetan people to become ‘good Chinese.’  Time to start nuking the commies.
  72. 2020 Wednesday K: Update on Louisville, Kentucky, the violent, out-of-control Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs have shot and wounded two police officers, are running amok though the city, trying to storm the mayor’s home, the hospital where the injured cops are being treated, and threatening all manner of other atrocities such as murdering cops.  Chi-Coms, WE KNOW you are behind this anarchy, and you will indeed pay for your crimes.

  79. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– As all hell continues breaking loose down on the southern border, today is Day No. 182 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the mess and Day No. 89 since her singular visit to the border.  What the Biden regime did do, however, was to strip away the Border Patrol’s main asset- their horses.  After video appeared of Border Patrol agents trying to corral the Haitian Invasion going on down there while on horseback, the left immediately began screeching about RACISM and SLAVERY and everything else they love crowing about. Next, here are the numbers as presented by OAN, first the cost of caring for this riffraff for just this day: $508,967,648.  Next, here is the cost of caring for the invaders for the year 2021: $290,920,005,632.  Third, here is the number of illegals who crossed the border this year: 2,981,697.  Finally, here is the conservative low estimate of illegals living in the country now: 2,981,696. (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).
  80. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– As the border crisis continues going from bad to worse, the highly esteemed Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell said today that the ‘border crisis is a textbook example of failed leadership.’  In other Biden border catastrophe news, U.S. Special Envoy Daniel Foote- the man in charge of Haiti- threw in the towel and resigned over his boss, Joe Biden’s failed handling of the HAITIAN INVASION.  Speaking of the ongoing disaster that could be easily fixed if only the Biden regime was not committed to carrying out the REPLACEMENT THEORY- replacing American voters with the dregs of the Third World- Rep. Ralph Norman, R-SC 5th congressional district, said today that the Biden regime is ‘tone deaf’ on the border.

  85. : Political News I– In a national embarrassment, so-called ‘climate czar’ John F. Kerry says he is more worried about the Chi-Coms ‘doing their part’ fighting climate change than he is about their innumerable human rights abuses.  In other Democratic Party news, the Dems are going berserk as the bill they plan on pushing tomorrow to counter the Texas ban on abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected, Senator Susan Collins, R-ME, says she won’t support their bill.  The Dems are going into a tailspin, the Pro-Death losers.
  86. 2021 Thursday M: Political News II– In other pathetic Democratic Party news, after the White House said that it was looking for a private contractor to provide care for members of the HAITIAN INVASION in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, the White House had to then rush out and say, “Oh, no, we aren’t going to send our beloved Haitian illegals to Gitmo.’  Wow.  Meanwhile, as things continue going from bad to worse for the Biden regime, the Wall Street Journal says that troubling questions regarding Hunter Biden’s art sales continue to increase.  Oh, say it ain’t so!  Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, R-PA 14th congressional district, said of Hunter Biden and the regime that ‘hypocrisy is rich when it comes to the first son.’  Next- and this is a shock to us as much as it is to country star Lee Greenwood, Joe Biden is going to remove the beloved entertainer from the Arts Council all because he performed for President Donald J. Trump.  WOW.  How flipping petty!  Finally, the feds are going to pay a Florida school district $150,000 because it refuses to follow “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis order banning mask mandates in the state’s public schools.  Wow to that, too.
  87. 2021 Thursday N: Sports News I– In tonight’s Thursday Night Football Game, the Carolina Panthers easily defeated the Houston Texans by a final score of 24-9.
  88. 2022 Friday: Observation of the Day On Tuesday, our nation hit a record never before seen in the history of the nation: 2 million illegal alien encounters on the U.S.-Mexico border and those are just the ones we’ve apprehended.  This is unsustainable, something we cannot permit and I am going to offer a solution.  Remember when the Saudis were offering high-priced boat tours along the coastline of Somalia?  About a decade or more ago, Somali pirates were wreaking havoc on commercial shipping and the navies of the world attempted to stop it.  However, maintaining naval and air assets in the area was costly and so they fell off as time progressed.  The Saudis would take their passengers aboard yachts and provide them with all manner of automatic weapons, ammo, and whatever else was required to kill pirates and then would like in wait, awaiting the inevitable speedboats full of crazed, drug-addled pirates parting the waves towards them.  Once within firing range, the passengers would light the f**king scum up, riddling the pirates with high-powered bullets and sending their boats to the bottom of the sea.  While some people called it ‘evil,’ others called it ‘necessary’ and over the last 5, 6, maybe even 7 years, we have heard little to nothing about ‘Somali pirates.’  Folks, let’s do something similar along the border.  At some point- and everyone understands this– we are going to have to begin shooting the invaders.  The longer we postpone the inevitable, the more it’s going to cost the American taxpayers.  I say, we begin running tours for people seeking to improve their shooting skills and to do what the f**king government will NOT do and that is to DEFEND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.  Hell, we might even allow the wealthiest customers to use vintage World War II tanks, imagine the revenues that would provide our cash-strapped government.  Let me know your opinion.  Thanks- Chef Kilgore Randalini.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On April 12, 1988, Cheap Trick returned to fore with their next album- “Lap of Luxury”- their most successful since “Dream Police” of nearly a decade before.  Besides featuring Rick Nielsen (lead and rhythm guitars, backing vocals), Robin Zander (lead vocals, rhythm guitars, and synthesizers), and Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion), Tom Petersson (bass and backing vocals), had returned home.  The Epic label was determined that Cheap Trick was going to have a ‘number one hit’ seeing as how they had not had a bona fide hit in eons, the label demanded they bring in outside songwriters which must have been somewhat insulting to Rick Nielsen, the principal songwriter.  Still, they had a NUMBER ONE HIT- their ONLY number one- in “The Flame.”  Considered a controversial number in the history of the band because feelings towards it were mixed, it is a FABULOUS TUNE and we love it.  It resurrected the group and most fans are onboard with it.  Add to that the cover of Elvis Presley’s “Don’t Be Cruel” and the delightful “Ghost Town” and one can see why we give this album the ringing endorsement that we do.  Seek it out and add it to your ever-growing collection of the absolute best in rock music- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

[i] We began promoting the music of the Lovin’ Spoonful on Saturday, 14-September-2013 and concluded the presentation on Tuesday, 24-September-2013.  Please check them out and add them to your growing CD collection- they are one of the greats.

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

[iii] We hope to offer the music of Alice Cooper one day so please keep posted until we do.  We think you will appreciate them, especially the original band.

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

[v] Not sure when we will promote the music of the Average White Band but hope to do it at some point within the next 25 years.  Stick with us as you will be among the first to know.

[vi] Barack Obama most likely was born in Kenya as many sources claim and therefore an illegal president.,

[vii] We won’t be doing the music of Shawn Mendes.  We only do serious musicians.

[viii] Sadly, little Ms. Greta Thunberg is a perfect example of an indoctrinated leftist, frightened into believing that CLIMATE CHANGE is something caused by humans.  Any person who has ever taken a university-level geography class understands that the Sun is the number one driver of all things to do with climate and on every planet in the Solar System that has one, every satellite that has one.  The amount (or lack) of solar flares, sunspots, and the intensity or lessening of the solar winds understands that these are the driving forces of climate change.  We can combat pollution and maintain a pristine environment, but we cannot control how hot or cool the summers are or vice versa what the winters are.  Stop scaring people you flipping left-wing climate activists!
