223. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, AUGUST 11, 2022

If you ever wondered about what happened to John Fitzgerald Kennedy, all one need do is revisit his tragic demise. The FBI finds a patsy like Lee Harvey Oswald, send him out to do the deed and then have another indebted patsy like Jack Ruby rub him out. Ditto with James Earl Ray and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and ditto with Sirhan B. Sirhan and Bobby Kennedy.

  51. 2019 Sunday:  The Chi-Coms in Beijing are tearing their hair out as the ongoing pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong enter their 10th straight weekend.  None of this would be occurring if the communists on the mainland would observe the agreement, they signed with Great Britain to allow a transition of 50 years or so for the mainland to absorb the colony in its entirety.  Is anyone surprised that communists NEVER keep their word?
  52. 2020 Tuesday: Folks, when it comes to Kamala Harris, California Democratic senator, it is NOT who you know but who you blow (ask Willie Brown, former SF mayor and speaker of the California State Assembly).  She has used her wiles to achieve every political position and now, she is Joe Biden’s vice-presidential nominee.  It is also fascinating to note that like Barack Hussein Obama, she ain’t down for the struggle, since dad comes from a Jamaican family with a slave-owning history and mom comes from India.  There you go.  If we, were you, Joe, we would sleep with one eye open from this point onward?  
  53. 2020 Tuesday A: Meanwhile, in Seattle, Washington, SPD Police Chief Carmen Best announces her resignation, effective September 02.  She is leaving because the Seattle City Council agreed to slash the SPD in half and to lay off one hundred officers or more in a once-beautiful city that now has become plagued by leftwing lunatics.  We are sad to see you go, chief!  Elsewhere, riots break out in Beirut a day after the Lebanese prime minister and cabinet resigned due to the alleged Hezbollah-linked massive explosion in the port a week ago today.  Thousands of Lebanese are calling for lopping off the head of the ‘snake,’ Hezbollah criminal boss, Hassan Nasrallah.  Go to it, folks, go to it. 
  54. 2020 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- here are today’s Chi-Com Horseshoe Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 20,185,153 confirmed cases, UP by 227,115 cases, 738,800 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,911 deaths, and 12,450,681 confirmed recoveries, UP by 292,606 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 5,224,867 confirmed cases, UP by 65,127 new cases, 166,456 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,338 new deaths, and 2,623,403 confirmed recoveries, UP by 111,801 new recoveries.  We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.
  55. 2020 Tuesday C: 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: 574,411 confirmed cases, 10,468 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 3,638 confirmed cases, thirty-four confirmed deaths, and 1,586 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 63,647 confirmed cases, 1,697 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, will not share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let us take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 422,003 confirmed number of cases, 32,774 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries (It is interesting to note that between this week and last week, they readjusted the number of deaths DOWN).  Wake up, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo!  Give us the honest numbers your malodourous piece of cesspit filth, especially of the senior citizens you have killed.  People are going to sue YOU.  Shame on you.

[xiv]  
  58. 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 316,875 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 87,203 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xx]        
  62. 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 $4.393 per gallon, $3.017 in Florida, $4.095 in Hawaii, and $3.878 in Washington state. [xxi]    Let us look at one other location- North Carolina: $2.931.  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- Northern Macedonia: $5.194 per U.S. Gallon.[xxii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,630,008,130,917 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxiii]  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 Ireland, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Luxembourg with $288 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.
  63. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day No. 141 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be running the show down on the U.S.-Mexico border as well as her 47th day since her singular visit to the border.  Here are the daily figures for the border calamity as compiled by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just this day: $533,303,378.  Second, here is the cost of caring for the border invaders for the year so far: $242,724,395,892.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal alien invaders for the year so far: 2,497,274.  Fourth and final, here is the conservative estimate for the numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the United States as we speak: 36,497,419. [xxiv]  (Note- since this blog’s inception back in July 2009, we estimated the numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the country somewhere around 35-50 million back then whereas now, we believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million which is not good, folks.  (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).[xxv]
  64. 2021 Wednesday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I– North Korea says that the United States is failing to improve relations between the two countries.  Meanwhile, the Taliban conquer their eighth provincial capital in Afghanistan.  Many believe that Kabul will implode within three months.  Joe Biden’s mouthpiece, Jen “Circle Back” Psaki, says that Joe ‘does not believe the collapse of Afghanistan is inevitable’ yet it will happen because of the way regime leader Biden conducted the pull-out.  Elsewhere, for some unknown reason, the U.S. State Department is sending $50 million to totalitarian Myanmar ostensibly to help around 700,000 people address COVID-19 concerns.  Why aren’t the Chi-Coms helping their fellow thugs?
  65. 2021 Wednesday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The COVID-19 Nazis are at it again: YouTube has suspended the account of Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, over the bold senator’s recent criticisms of mask and vaccine mandates.  Speaking of mandates, drooling Joe Biden says (or his earpiece says) that HE will overrule like God on High bans on mask wearing in public schools.  Go for it, Joe, go for it.  Next, the Pentagon says that ‘most troops will respond positively to being compelled to get Chi-Vi vaccines.’  Moving on, the FDA is seeking clearance to mandate a third Chi-Vi vaccine injection for transplant patients.
  66. 2021 Wednesday I: Voting Integrity-Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke led tens of thousands of Wisconsinites in demanding an audit of the 2020 Presidential and national elections.  Across the nation, more people are standing up demanding that their state’s 2020 Election results undergo a forensic audit.  At Sioux City, South Dakota, as Mike Lindell and his patriotic colleagues were producing ream after ream after ream of evidence, he discovered live on air that a federal judge was going to allow the Dominion Voting Systems multiple lawsuits to proceed against the pillow magnate and his allies.  It is clear from listening to the two days so far that the 2020 Elections a cabal of rat-eating Chi-Com scum, Democratic-Socialists, and their obsequious RINO allies manipulated the elections to their desire if not actively reversed the results.  The time is coming, and it is coming soon when all of this will find its way into the courts.  The Department of Homeland Security is warning local police department to keep an eye out for election deniers.
  67. 2021 Wednesday J: Joe Biden News I– Flipflopping from yesterday, slobbering old Joe Biden supports New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo’s resignation over his obsessive grabbing, fondling, and kissing of unwilling women and men.  Joe, they will be coming for YOU next, you old Cho-Mo.  (Speaking of “Killer” Cuomo, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, calls for the arrest and prosecution of the devious governor once he is out of office.  In other Cuomo news, his ex, Sandra Lee, feels betrayed that the groper took credit for granting homosexual marriage rights in the Empire State.  Apparently, she twisted him by the gonads to do this.
  68. 2021 Wednesday K: Political News I– The U.S. Senate passed the massive $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation bill that will further impoverish the United States while stuffing massive amounts of cash into the pockets of Democrats, their sycophant RINO allies, and labor unions while everyone else will suffer.   Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, blasted the Democrats’ reckless ‘tax and spend’ policies.  He ripped into the scurrilous Democrats moments before the passage of the $1.3 trillion infrastructure bill of which ONLY seven percent is ‘infrastructure.’  The rest is free pork to leftwing locales, liberal politicians, and of course the omnipresent Chi-Coms.  (The Republicans are telling the Democrats to ‘go it alone’ on raising the debt ceiling).  However, the Senate passed a GOP-led amendment that prohibits government from using federal funds to promote Critical (Criminal) Race Theory in government and in education.  Unfortunately, the Democrats can always remove or negate the amendment later like they almost always do when it comes to the horror of abortion.   Finally, Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, voted against the ‘infrastructure bill.’
  69. 2021 Wednesday L: Political News II– Rep. Jim Banks, R-IN 3rd congressional district, endorsed Ohio GOP Senate candidate and author J.D. Vance in the race to replace retiring U.S. Senator Rob Portman.   In other political news, former U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos says she will NOT seek the governorship of Michigan in 2022.  In other news, the speaker of the Texas state house signed arrest warrants for the fugitive Democrats who are holding up progress.  Meanwhile, longtime Rep. Ron Kind, D-WI 3rd congressional district, says he will not seek re-election.  He has served the citizens of his district since 1997. 
  70. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News III– A gunowners rights group is fighting for the right to open carry firearms at the Minnesota State Fair.  Speaking of Second Amendment rights, President Donald J. Trump is congratulating Governor Mike Parson, R-MO, for pardoning the gun-wielding couple who defended their home in last year’s Black Lives Matter and Antifa protests.  Leftwing trash brazenly targeted Mark and Patricia McCloskey in their front yard.  The couple stood by armed to the teeth while the mob seethed about them in the street threatening to murder them, rape Patricia McCloskey, kill the family pets, and to burn their home down in the private community.
  71. 2021 Wednesday N: Political News IV– Sandy “The Fly” Cortez and her Squad-backed group are hailing cop killers.  What is wrong with these leftist skanks?  Strip these hateful skanks of their protection squads and let them fend for themselves.
  72. 2021 Wednesday O: California State News– Oakland, California, city officials are calling on Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom to declare a state of emergency over rising violent crime rates across the city.  These people are Democrats!
  73. 2021 Wednesday P: Texas State News– Texas counties have won court orders blocking Governor Greg Abbott’s mask ban mandates.  They want masks.  Governor Abbott also fired a shot across the bow of the tranny movement by comparing gender transformation surgeries for children to be child abuse.
  74. 2021 Wednesday Q: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3585 what with a $7 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 08, 12, 21, 40, 47, and Mega 11.  Out of 89,125 winning tickets, the highest winners were 14 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $1,064 apiece.    Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #871 with a jackpot of $241 million up for grabs: 12, 18, 20, 29, 30, and Powerball 16.  Out of 92,051 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but no Powerball for a prize of $4,4772,553.  The winning ticket was sold at a 7-Eleven in Temecula, CA 92592.
  75. 2021 Wednesday R: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– In his hometown of Akron, Ohio, heavyweight boxer Michael “Dynamite” Dokes dies at age 54, one day after his birthday.  Over the course of his pro career, he held numerous titles and amassed a record of 61 fights, 53 wins (33 KOs), 6 losses, and 2 draws.
  76. 2021 Wednesday S: The Wrap-Up– We learned today that the Biden regime is begging OPEC and associated nations to increase oil production so gasoline prices within the United States will drop.  Folks, didn’t this stumblebum bozo clamp down on virtually every fossil fuel production project that he could within the United States so he could usher in a brave new era of solar panels and wind energy?  Whether we produce our own oil supplies or import them, we are still burning the same amount of oil.  If we produce it, we are energy independent and if we import it and rely on those sources, we sure as hell are not.  Friends, this is frigging insane and the sooner the courts begin hearing the election fraud cases on merit, the sooner we might decapitate this faux regime.  We are Americans, we are free people, and we are not going to put up with this bullshit.  NOT threatening any violence upon anyone, just saying.  Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.
  77. 2022 Thursday: The next three months are going to be a dangerous time for the American people as the closer Election Day draws near, the more desperate the Biden regime and its Joestapo thugs will become.  They thought sending the Joestapo down to Mar-a-Lago was going to be the magic bullet, yet, the bullet had the opposite effect, people are growing angrier by the minute.  As a former Democrat, I KNOW Democrats, many Democrats in fact, and they are telling me that this ‘ain’t good, Fritz, it ain’t good.’  People are wary of what is happening to our country and whether one likes Donald Trump, or they do not, most can agree on one thing: thanks to him, we are now 100-percent aware as to the existence of the Deep State and most everyone will do everything possible to DESTROY IT.  We elect our leaders, and the bureaucrats are obligated to follow their directions.  If they don’t like it, they can frigging quit.  It is not up to scum such as James Clapper, that fat pig, John Brennan, that deviant POS James Comey, and the rest of the inbred political hacks scattered throughout government to topple elected leaders.  If you ever wondered about what happened to John Fitzgerald Kennedy, all one need do is revisit his tragic demise.  The FBI finds a patsy like Lee Harvey Oswald, send him out to do the deed and then have another indebted patsy like Jack Ruby rub him out.  Ditto with James Earl Ray and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and ditto with Sirhan B. Sirhan and Bobby Kennedy.  It has NEVER been clearer than it is now.  Let me know what you think- Chef Fritz Schlependrecht.

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:

Today’s album is the next studio album by Beach Boy, Brian Wilson, his second collaboration with the Disney Corporation- “In the Key of Disney”- which came out on October 25, 2011.  Disney was NOT yet WOKE like they would be a decade later which is why this album makes it into our presentation.  Brian ‘reimagines’ the Disney movie classics of the day in a way in which, only he can.  You have remakes of many tunes from various feature animated films whether it be “The Lion King,” “The Little Mermaid,” “Toy Story,” and loads of others well before everything became transgender, gay, lesbo, homo, you name it, all the devious, sick shit Disney now stands for.  Alas, it is what it is, we hope you seek this one out wherever it is you shop for the absolute best in music and give it a listen.  Perhaps, you might like it.  Enjoy.

216. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, AUGUST 04, 2022

2022 Thursday: Hmmm, so-o-o, Joe ‘Slobbering’ Biden whacked Ayman Al-Zawahiri, the Number Two of al-Qaida, longtime confidant, physician, and amigo of dead terrorist Osama bin Laden. A somewhat coherent Biden stumbled to the microphones this past Monday and stuttered out his message of a ‘successful drone strike’ on an old terrorist no one has seen in about a decade- if not longer.

  61. 2016 Thursday: CBS News reports that candidate Donald Trump’s behavior on the campaign trail has been ‘so bizarre’ that many are left to wonder if he is a plant by the Hillary campaign or a secret agent in the employ of Russia.  What a load of bogus BS.  This supports the proven theory that the Deep State, the Democratic Party, and their Fake News allies are in cahoots not only to push haggard Hillary into the White House but to bamboozle the American people into believing their phony propaganda.  We shall see who wins in November.
  62. 2017 Friday: German supermarket Aldi pulls all shell eggs from the Netherlands from its shelves after the discovery of the chemical- fipronil- is found in them.  Pest control companies use fipronil to kill insects so WTF?  Elsewhere, in a federal court in Brooklyn, New York, former boy wonder pharmaceutical CEO Martin Shkreli- a loser who jacked up the price of a generic drug to the point no one could afford it- undergoes conviction on three counts of securities fraud.
  63. 2018 Saturday: In what many believe to be a setup, Venezuelan thug President Nicolas Maduro survives an assassination attempt, carried out by a drone while the communist POS was at a military review.  The event was captured on live TV.  Even better, the former bus-driving thug Maduro blames the assassination attempt on Venezuelan exiles hiding in neighboring Colombia and on their handlers as well as the Venezuelan ‘mafia’ supposedly living in Florida.  Dude, STFU.
  64. 2019 Sunday: The Central Bank of China devalues its currency below the normal 7-1 ratio with the U.S. dollar for the first time in more than a decade, due in part to the trade tariffs President Donald J. Trump is using to force the communists to the bargaining table and trade talks.  Meanwhile, in what many believe to be a terrorist attack conducted by ISIS, a car bomb explodes in Cairo, Egypt, killing 20 and injuring another 47 people.  Scumbags.  Elsewhere, Connor Bettis- a POS with a gun- hits the bar district in Dayton, Ohio, and kills 9 people and wounds another 27 before law enforcement arrives on scene and shoots the punk dead.
  65. 2020 Tuesday: In Beirut, Lebanon, a tremendous blast felt as far as Cyprus, rips part of the port apart, killing between 75-100 people and injuring another 2,700-3,500.  Speculation abounds with the Lebanese claiming it was a storage site for firecrackers (yeah, right) but we suspect the site was warehousing Iranian munitions bound for Hamas to use against Israel so either the Mossad took care of the problem, or the mullah-loving Iranians and their Hamas allies are too flipping stupid to be around large caches of explosives.  Self-detonation (or so we suspect- morons!).  Wow.
  66. 2020 Tuesday A: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 18,380,616 confirmed cases, UP by 241,178 cases, 691,740 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,167 deaths, and 10,973,850 confirmed recoveries, UP by 220,035 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 4,834,460 confirmed cases, UP by 56,909 new cases, 158,728 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,208 new deaths, and 2,357,033 confirmed recoveries, UP by 38,264 new recoveries.  We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.
  67. 2020 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 519,427 confirmed cases, 9,501 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 2,448 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,315 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 58,715 confirmed cases, 1,600 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: 417,589 confirmed number of cases, 35,719 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.  Wake up, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo!  Give us the honest numbers you fetid piece of sewer scum, especially of the senior citizens you have killed.  Shame on you.
  68. 2020 Tuesday C: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 26,828.47, UP 164.07 points (+0.62%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 10,841.17, UP 38.37 points (+0.35%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,306.51, UP 11.90 points (+0.36%).  The price of GOLD is $2,040.70 per troy oz., +19.00 (+0.94%) while the price of SILVER is $26.22 per troy ounce, +0.187 (+0.72%).  The price of PLATINUM is $958.50 per troy oz, +3.30 (+0.35%) while the price of COPPER is $2.90 per pound, +0.0085 (+0.29%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.55 per barrel, -0.15 (-0.36%).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.97 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.85 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency.
  69. 2020 Tuesday D: Dr. Oxiris Barbot, New York City health commissioner, sent a letter to moron Mayor Bill Di Blasio, calling it quits over the tremendous mishandling of the COVID-19 Chinese Virus.  We must remember that Mayor Di Blasio and Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo colluded together to send patients infected with the Wuhan Flu into rest homes where vulnerable people died sans the presence of any loved ones present.  We can smell massive lawsuits against Di Blasio and Cuomo brewing on the horizon, like the police officers they wish to destroy, they should enjoy NO qualified immunity for their criminal mistakes.  Elsewhere, General Charles Brown took the oath of office in the White House which made him the new chief of staff of the U.S. Air Force, the first black American to hold the post.  Congratulations! 
  70. 2020 Tuesday E: One teacher’s union after another around the country are making demands before they will return that range from soaking the wealthy, adopting the Green New Deal, abolishing the police, equipping every home with a computer and Internet access, and loads of other stupidity.  Friendly state education authorities are trying to shut down private schools, charter schools, you name it, they are doing whatever they can to close it.  President Trump: do what President Ronald Reagan did with the striking air traffic controllers- FIRE THEM and REPLACE THEM.  On August 05, 1981, he fired 11,359 of the scumbags.  Other Americans will take these jobs.
  71. 2021 Wednesday: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- 200,907,364 confirmed cases, +660,570, 4,268,702 confirmed deaths, +9,788 and 180,887,601 confirmed recoveries, +375,059.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 36,159,774 confirmed cases, UP 101,353 from yesterday’s reporting, 631,256 confirmed deaths, UP 759, [ix] and 29,783,667 confirmed recoveries, UP 24,537.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [x]  
  72. 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 312,814 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 91,264 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  73. 2021 Wednesday 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: 4,003,013 confirmed cases, 64,622 confirmed deaths, and 2,110,935 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,703,998 confirmed cases, 39,319 confirmed deaths, and 2,297,664 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 43,962 confirmed cases, 538 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 484,806 confirmed cases, 6,186 confirmed deaths, and 231,241 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Alabama: they have 592,417 confirmed cases, 11,542 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. [xi]  
  74. 2021 Wednesday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 885,766 confirmed cases, 6,503 confirmed deaths, and 854,995 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Laos,[xii] 168th country on the list: 7,305 cases of the virus, 7 confirmed deaths and 3,804 confirmed recoveries. [xiii]     
  75. 2021 Wednesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,792.67, DOWN 323.73 points (-0.92%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,780.53, UP 19.24 points (+0.13%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,402.66, DOWN -20.49 points (-0.46%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $68.10 per barrel, -0.05 (-0.07%).  The price of GOLD is $1,814.50 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%) while the price of SILVER is $25.41 per troy ounce, -0.05 (-0.20%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,018.10 per troy oz, -3.10 (-0.30%) while the price of COPPER is $4.33 per pound, 0.00 (-0.01%). [xiv]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,646.53 per troy oz, +1.70 (+0.06%). [xv] The price of RHODIUM is $19,000.00 per troy oz., +100.00 (+0.53%). The price of NEODYMIUM is $780,000.00 per CNY/T, -10,000.00 (-1.27%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $2,563.50 per USD/T, -24.65 (-0.95%). [xvi]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000025.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.97. In Lao Kip, one greenback equals 9,550.00 and in Latvian Lats, a buck equal 0.604 and in Lebanese Pound, one dollar equals 1,505.50 of theirs. [xvii]        
  76. 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 $4.387 per gallon, $3.025 in Florida, $4.085 in Hawaii, and $3.865 in Washington state. [xviii]    Let’s look at one other location- Maine: $3.128.  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- Cayman Islands: $4.929 per U.S. Gallon. [xix]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,602,871,192,916 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS. [xx]  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 Sweden, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Australia with $40 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  77. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Here’s the ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris’ daily ticker: Border czar for 134 days and 40 days since her one and only visit to the southern border.  Next, One America News shared the latest figures on the illegal alien tidal wave overwhelming the country today.  Here we go: (1) Cost this day alone: $533,587,136.  Next, (2) here is the cost for caring for all these illegal aliens this year: $236,150,079,488.  Next, (3) Here is the estimate of the numbers of illegals who have poured across the U.S.-Mexico border just this year: 2,420,349.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate of illegal aliens roaming the U.S.: 36,420,348.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  Note- the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day predicted as far back as 2009 when our original blogsite got underway that the numbers back then were between 35-50 million illegal aliens.  Now, we believe that number to be closer to 75-100 million.  A person cannot walk into a hardware store, go into a liquor store, dine at an outdoor restaurant without illegals running up and begging for food.  This must stop and it’s going to stop extremely soon…
  78. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– A federal judge blocks Governor Greg Abbott’s executive order prohibiting the transport of illegal aliens across the Lone Star State by anyone other than federal authorities.  The Texas Republican governor, however, is fighting back against this blatant overreach of power.  Elsewhere, slobbering Joe Biden continues blaming Texas and Florida for increasing the numbers of Chi-Vi cases.  ‘America’s Governor’ Ron DeSantis, R-FL, fired back at the counterfeit president, slamming him for allowing in millions of illegal aliens many of whom are infected with COVID-19 by telling him to ‘do your job and leave us alone.’  Man, the applause was tremendous.  Meanwhile, we have more numbers for the illegal alien invasion for the month of July: the Border Patrol caught 203,865 illegals, at least 37,252 were able to evade capture, 78 died, another 7,867 were guilty of NO violation, which leaves an outstanding number of 1,079 illegals.  Again, this is all a conservative estimate as the so-called ‘got-away folks’ are far higher than the numbers shown here.
  79. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I- Pakistan announced today that it has completed approximately 90-percent of the border wall with Afghanistan.  They don’t want Afghan refugees pouring into their country any more than Europeans want more Muslims, or the United States want more human refuse from around the world.  Good for them.  Elsewhere, Hezbollah scumbags fired some rockets into northern Israel today which led to the Israelis conducting artillery barrages on known jihadist sites in Lebanon.
  80. 2021 Wednesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci is predicting that within a few weeks, there will be ‘200,000 cases of the Chi-Vi daily in the United States.’  (Note- this is all you need to know that the border must be closed and that every single illegal alien is rounded up, imprisoned, and then deported ASAP).  Meanwhile, Dr. Ashish Jha told Newsmax today that the NIH director Dr. Francis Collins was right to walk back mask comments.  The good doctor was saying stupid stuff like parents should wear masks at home around their children.  Enough already.    
  81. 2021 Wednesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– The World Health Organization is calling for a moratorium on COVID-19 booster shots.  Oh, really?  Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms continue their bitching and whining over the recent GOP COVID-19 origins report that placed the blame squarely on the Chi-Coms for infecting the entire world with their Frankenstein-like lab-created Wuhan Bat Flu Virus.  Elsewhere, the Centers for Disease Control yesterday bowed to Democratic-Socialist pressure and re-enacted a moratorium on evictions, something they lack the power to do.  Doubts continue to build as to the legality of such an order by an entity with no power in this area.  Look, folks, this is what the Democrats love- they love rules and regulations, none of them backed up by laws.  This is how they punish people, how they persecute people, and how they crush people.  This is bullshit and we would suggest that landlords pay NO attention to this order.
  82. 2021 Wednesday K: Political News I– Democratic Party leadership in the House is urging their wavering members to run as “Biden Democrats” or risk losing the majority in 2022.  Meanwhile, Senator Kevin Cramer, R-ND, has introduced a bill (that will go nowhere) that says ‘if a state mandates COVID-19 vaccine passports, it also must mandate VOTER ID.’  That bill is going nowhere.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump is correct when he blasts the House Democrats for their ongoing crusade to get a hold of his tax returns.  Good for you.
  83. 2021 Wednesday L: Political News II– A new poll says that more than half of California’s Hispanic population wants the recall against Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom to succeed and like everyone else, the Latinos are members of all parties.  Meanwhile, Senator James Lankford, R-OK, says that ‘our grandchildren will suffer repaying Joe Biden’s massive debt.’  Amen.  In other political news, ‘America’s Mayor’ Rudy Giuliani says that ‘Cuomo may be guilty, but he does deserve due process.’  Elsewhere, Rep. Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd CD, is suing MSNBC’s Rachel “Mudslinger” Maddow for libel.  We hope you win, congressman.
  84. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News III– In other political news, a new poll says that almost everyone is against partisan gerrymandering.  Next, Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnel, RINO-KY, has outlined demands for future spending bills.  Mitch, you don’t have any power.  Meanwhile, Joe Biden plans to shift arms export sales based on human rights concerns.  Looks like Saudi Arabia is not going to get its weapons.
  85. 2021 Wednesday N: Economic News– Last month, everyone was celebrating how many NEW private sector jobs Joe Biden was going to create and then whoops-a-daisy, bad economic news.  Last month, the Biden regime created ONLY 330,000 jobs- many of them no more than hamburger-flipper or taco-stuffer jobs- rather than the highly predicted number of 653,000 new jobs.  Growth in U.S. services sector hits a record high in July.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump economic adviser Peter Navarro says “U.S. pensions took a big hit from the Chi-Coms’ crackdown on BIG TECH.”
  86. 2021 Wednesday O: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3583 what with a $14 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner.  Here are the numbers: 04, 14, 18, 36, 43, and Mega 14.  Out of 89,945 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $33,312.  The winning ticket was sold at a 7-Eleven in Culver City, CA 90232.   Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #869 with a jackpot of $211 million up for grabs: 05, 21, 32, 36, 58, and Powerball 14.  Out of 85,166 winning tickets in the Golden State, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $11,844 apiece.
  87. 2022 Thursday: Hmmm, so-o-o, Joe ‘Slobbering’ Biden whacked Ayman Al-Zawahiri, the Number Two of al-Qaida, longtime confidant, physician, and amigo of dead terrorist Osama bin Laden.  A somewhat coherent Biden stumbled to the microphones this past Monday and stuttered out his message of a ‘successful drone strike’ on an old terrorist no one has seen in about a decade- if not longer.  Drooling Joe told his then-boss Barack Hussein Obama (and probably still boss) NOT to whack Osama but Obama ‘All Drama’ did.  Now, Joe wants us to think he’s a big, macho machine ordering death and destruction on every fourth string, D-team terrorist.  Folks, I don’t buy this crap nor will I.  When and if they confirm the DNA of the dead terrorist to be him or not, it means NOTHING.  NOTHING.  Big frigging deal.  Joe, you aren’t Donald J. Trump.  You’re a senile bum.  Resign now.

[i] We promoted the music of Country Joe and the Fish beginning on Tuesday, 16-July-2013 through Friday, 26-July-2013.  This was one of the greatest bands to explode out of San Francisco, California, during the Psychedelic 1960s.

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

[iii] We look forward to doing the music of Hummingbird at some point in the next year or so.

[iv] We look forward to doing the music of Ricky Nelson and Rick Nelson and the Stone Canyon Band at some point within the next 10-15 years.  Keep vigilant!

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

[vi] We promoted the music of the Doors, the famed Los Angeles, California, hard rocking psychedelic band beginning on Saturday, 18-February-2012 through 02-April-2012.  We hope you will seek this legendary band out and consider adding it to your ever-growing collection.

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

[viii] ABBA?  You never know but if we are not all in reeducation camps or dead within the next 25 years, you could very well expect to see the music of ABBA.

215. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 03, 2022

2022 Wednesday: Many pundits are speculating as to the REAL REASON for U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan. Sure, American politicians should be able to travel wherever and whenever they wish without being fearful of communist thugs like communist China or fascist hoodlums like Russia. Some such as Tucker Carlson, Eric Bolling, Chris Salcedo, and others speculate as to whether “Mumbles” Pelosi’s ill-timed visit is a false flag so the Chi-Coms can snatch up the islands to the west of Taiwan with which to then launch an invasion of Taiwan?

  57. 2020 Monday:  President Donald J. Trump signed an executive order today in which, he forbids American companies (Google comes to mind as does Microsoft and numerous other big tech firms) from hiring foreign scab workers to displace higher-paid American workers.  Far too often in today’s America, American firms force American workers to train foreign workers to do their jobs and then send them packing.  This is not right and what the president did today is amazing.  NO more displacing Americans with foreign scabs.  Enough is enough.  Meanwhile, the stats are in for shootings in Chicago over the weekend: at least 33 people shot, 9 slain- including a 9-year-old boy and when compared to last July in Chicago, murders in the Windy City in July are up 139-percent.  Elsewhere, in New York City, at this point in time, there have been more shootings than ALL of last year’s combined.  What the hell is up with these BIG BLUE CITIES?  Where the hell are Black Lives Matter, you know, the Marxist, racist organization?  We thought black lives ‘matter?’  Apparently not.

Trump gave Chi-Com ‘video’ (spying) ap Tik-Tok until September 15 of this year to allow Microsoft to buy the intelligence gathering platform or to get out of the United States.  Boot them out ASAP!  Meanwhile, Illinois state Representative La Shawn ford, Democrat, calls to abolish teaching history in schools across the state as- according to him- it ‘leads to white privilege and a racist society.’  Will it ever stop?

  68. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 133 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the flaming fiasco down along the U.S.-Mexico border and her 39th day since her one and only visit to the border.  Speaking of the ‘Border Czar,’ former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley says that Joe Biden “MUST fire” “Kooky Kamala” because she has no clue as to what the f**k she is doing.  Elsewhere, Grant Stinchfield reported on Newsmax this evening that the mayor of McAllen, Texas, Javier Villalobos, has declared a disaster as they are being overrun by thousands of illegal aliens with no end in sight.

Michael McCaul, R-TX 10th CD, says the Chi-Coms’ wailing and sniveling over the recent report is further proof of their duplicity in the crime of the century- unleashing the Chi-Vi on the world.  Rep. McCaul said it is ‘the worst cover-up in human history.’  No wonder the Beijing bullies are upset.  Speaking of the communists, Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, has once again called for moving the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics out of the authoritarian country and somewhere else to a more deserving country.   Rep. Tim Burchett, R-TN 2nd CD, says that the United States ‘must cut off communist China completely.’
  70. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News II– The Saudi foreign ministry has suggested that it won’t take part in the Abraham Accords.  Well, screw them.  Next, South Korea reports that the North Koreans want sanctions eased for them to return to direct talks with the United States.  Moving on, the Lebanese president is calling for an investigation into the Beirut blast that leveled much of the city a year ago tomorrow.  At least 204 people lost their lives while another 6,500 suffering injuries of varying degrees.  Tens of thousands more were made homeless in the space of a second.  Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken spoke with the Afghan president to see about ‘hastening along the peace negotiations with the Taliban.’  Mr. Secretary, the Taliban is overrunning the country, sir, how about helping them with air support?
  71. 2021 Tuesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The United States is donating another 110 million doses of the Chi-Com Virus vaccine abroad.  Hopefully, it’s the Johnson & Johnson crap.  In other Chi-Vi-related news, Florida’s schools have quickly rescinded their mask mandates for the upcoming school year after ‘America’s Governor’ Ron DeSantis threatened their funding.  NO MASKS for kids!  In fact, Governor Pete Ricketts, R-NE, says that ‘mask mandates and lockdowns are counterproductive.’     
  72. 2021 Tuesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Elsewhere, scientific journal writer Peter Hotez says that ‘questioning Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci should be labeled a “HATE CRIME.”  Interesting note: Professor Hotez has received funding from Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.’  Man, the fruit does not fall far from the pestilent stink-tree.

  74. 2021 Tuesday L: Joe Biden News I– Enfeebled Joe Biden believes that putting pressure on U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen G. Breyer to retire would harm the nation’s highest court and would politicize it.  Of course, the Democratic-Socialists reacted to this statement in the same way that Dracula would to a Crucifix and a vial of Holy Water. 
  75. 2021 Tuesday M: Joe Biden Regime News I– A new report regarding the Biden regime says that federal agencies do extraordinarily little to protect the data of U.S. citizens from being hacked by foreign adversaries. 
  76. 2021 Tuesday N: Political News I– The Democrats are at war with one another and the division within their hardcore-left-of-center party continues to grow.  Democrats are screeching and wailing over the end of the evictions moratorium which leads the rest of us to ask a scathing question of the liberal losers: YOU were giving people an extra 300 smackers on top of their unemployment so where the f**k did it go?  They weren’t paying their rent with the extra $1,200 per month.  This is crazy, landlords have bills, too, as do the people they hire to do the electrical work, the plumbing work, the reclamation work should the tenants to whom they have given housing trashed it.  Many people invest in rental properties to pay the bills and now, the Democrats are destroying that segment of the American economy along with numerous others.  Shame on them.
  77. 2021 Tuesday O: Political News II– Republican National Committee Chairperson Ronna McDaniel says that for Donald J. Trump to win in 2024, Republicans must win in 2022.  Next, many people now believe that the reason as to WHY New York AG Leticia James came out and trashed her boss, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov by listing his crimes as disgraced FBI Director James “Criminal” Comey did Hillary Rodham Clinton back in 2016 is that she wants to cripple him so she can run for his job and possibly win in 2022.  Now, that’s devious.  Still, the Albany County D.A. is now investigating Governor Cuomo so maybe someone else is going to do the dirty work for A.G.

  78. 2021 Tuesday P: Political News III– President Donald J. Trump’s attorney says that the Department of Justice ordering the Internal Revenue Service to hand over his client’s tax returns to the cretins in the U.S. Congress is occurring sans any evidence of wrongdoing.   Next, that crackpot scarecrow loser in the U.S. Senate- Elizabeth Warren, DS-MA,- says that ‘GOP voting laws are somehow connected to abortion.’  Say the flip what?  This woman is an angry loser.  Elsewhere, Governor J.B. Pritzker, DS-IL, says he is going to ‘enforce background checks on private gun sales.’  You should have been doing that already.  Moving on, the U.S. Senate voted to award ‘gold medals’ to the Capitol Hill cops who were at the Capitol on January 06, 2021.  What a load of crap.
  79. 2021 Tuesday Q: Political News IV– Grant Stinchfield of Newsmax lambasted the 18 Republicans who eagerly signed onto the $1.3 trillion ‘infrastructure bill.’  Again, here they are: Roy Blunt, R-MO; Richard Burr, R-NC; Shelley Moore Capito, R-WV; Bill Cassidy, R-LA; Mike Crapo; R-ID, James Risch, R-ID; Thom Tillis; R-NC; Todd Young, R-IN; Mike Rounds, R-SD; John Hoeven, R-ND, Kevin Cramer, R-ND; Lisa Murkowski, R-AK; Rob Portman, R-OH; Mitt Romney, R-UT; Susan Collins, R-ME; Chuck Grassley, R-IA; Lindsey Graham, R-SC; and “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, R-KY.  Here is some more of the crap contained within the ‘infrastructure bill’- $16.3 billion for ‘renewable energy’ program; $250 million for invasive plant elimination (how about for invasive human beings’ elimination, i.e., ILLEGAL ALIENS?), and $10 million per year for Motor Vehicle per-mile user fee program.  So now, the American people will be taxed per mile by local, state, and federal government?  There will be a new industry just as there is now with the manufacturing of vaccination ID cards, one in which, odometers will be reset and reset. 
  80. 2021 Tuesday R: Political News V– Tucker Carlson reported tonight from Budapest, Hungary, that the New York Times- the so-called ‘paper of record’- received millions of dollars from communist China to shill for the thugs in Beijing.  Islands that belong to Japan, they claimed belonged to the Chi-Coms as well as did everything to trash anyone who said that the Xi Jinping Bat Flu came from the Wuhan Institute of Virology was ‘xenophobic,’ a ‘racist,’ and/or a ‘bigot.’  Mr. Carlson said that the New York Times was not the only ‘news outlet’ to take Chi-Com yuan and then lie their asses off about anything their Beijing masters ordered them to do.  Wow.  Hence, ‘Chi-Coms good, Wuhan lab ‘innocent,’ and Donald J. Trump a ‘big, fat, evil racist.’  What a load of crap.
  81. 2021 Tuesday S: U.S. Senate News I– The U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee finally is seeking to repeal the 2002 use of military force in Iraq powers they gave to President George W. Bush.  Interested observers ask what took you so long to do this?  You should never have bestowed those powers on President Bush.  The AICPENDBLOG.COM believes, however, that the Deep State forced Bush’s hand into invading Iraq so everyone could rake in lots of bucks while then using the exact same war powers act to trash Bush #43.
  82. 2021 Tuesday T: Business News– In various parts of the United States, McDonalds Restaurants will require both employees and customers to mask up or to go across the street to Burger King.   Restaurants in New York City are going to require that ALL customers- with the blessings of outgoing NYC Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio- to show proof of vaccination, i.e., show their papers, otherwise, they cannot enter, sit down, and eat.  It would appear that the government is going to have private businesses do their dirty work just as they require employers to deduct payroll taxes from their workers’ salaries and then hand them over to government apparatchiks.  Well, there will always be restaurants that welcome all diners so it is important that we share names and locations in the same ways that hoboes of old shared whose house would provide one a meal and which house would not.
  83. 2021 Tuesday U: Special Election News– Tonight in the GOP primary race in Ohio’s 15th CD in a race to fill the vacant seat of former Rep. Steve Stivers, Donald J. Trump-backed candidate Mike Carey won big time.  Meanwhile, on the Democratic side of the aisle, state Rep. Allison Russo was projected to win the Democratic nomination.  The general election will be this November.  And they say Trump-backed candidates can’t win.  You win some, you lose some and Barack Hussein Obama has lost almost every endorsement he ever made- “Loser” with a capital “L.”
  84. 2021 Tuesday V: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– New York Attorney General Leticia James released the results of the probe into Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov and none of it looked good.  She would not commit to prosecuting the immoral chief executive and left it for others to do.  New York state Lt. Governor Kathy Hochul, Democrat, said today “NO one is above the law.”  Later in the day, Joe Biden called for the Empire State governor to ‘step down’ for his reprobate activities as did House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer.   Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st CD, called for the ‘immediate arrest’ of the immoral governor on grounds of criminal sexual harassment.  Good.  Lock him up.
  85. 2021 Tuesday W: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News II– However, Joe Biden is so out of it that he did not realize that as he was calling on his fellow Democratic-Socialist to step down, he opened the door for others to demand Mr. Biden step down due to his LONG HISTORY of groping, grabbing, smooching, rubbing, and saying all sorts of suggestive and disturbing things.  What is clear, too, is that AG James lacks the balls to pursue her boss, Governor “Killer” Cuomo.   Elsewhere, Missouri Governor Mike Parson has officially pardoned Mark and Patricia McCloskey for their ‘gun crimes convictions’ of last year.  Excellent.
  86. 2021 Tuesday X: Mass Shootings News– Two employees were wounded in a warehouse shooting in Tennessee.  Cops responding on scene shot the shooter.  Elsewhere, after some shots were fired outside the Pentagon, the entire facility went on lockdown.  It seems the bravest of the brave had to cower in fear inside the walls of America’s defense epicenter.   Apparently, a law enforcement officer may have lost his life in the incident.  Jihad?  White Supremacism?  Black Lives Matter?  Angry lover?  We don’t know.
  87. 2021 Tuesday Y: Big Tech News– Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, slams YouTube for its censorship of free speech and urges users to find alternative sites to share their views.
  88. 2021 Tuesday Z: California State News– Backers of Recall Governor Gavin Newsom are seeking to block language on the upcoming recall ballot that the effort to cleanse California of Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom is a ‘power grab by the GOP.  Governor Newsom, people from across the political spectrum are banding together to get YOU out of office just as they did with Governor Gray Davis, another corrupt Democrat governor.
  89. 2021 Tuesday AA: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1682 what with a $179 million jackpot on the line: 01, 09, 17, 27, 34, and Mega 24.  Out of 73,454 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers BUT NO MEGA for a prize of $1,091,799.  The winning ticket was sold at the Cortesia Market in Pacoima, CA 91331.
  90. 2022 Wednesday: Many pundits are speculating as to the REAL REASON for U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan.  Sure, American politicians should be able to travel wherever and whenever they wish without being fearful of communist thugs like communist China or fascist hoodlums like Russia.  Some such as Tucker Carlson, Eric Bolling, Chris Salcedo, and others speculate as to whether “Mumbles” Pelosi’s ill-timed visit is a false flag so the Chi-Coms can snatch up the islands to the west of Taiwan with which to then launch an invasion of Taiwan?  Anything is indeed possible in this world and some such as my family and me see signs of the End Times on the horizon.  One cannot make this stuff up.  No, all one need do is to read the Holy Bible.  Still, after all the suffering, the death, and the destruction, we will win.  That is the promise of GOD.  Chef Hector Santanamos “El Chilte” De Soto.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys released their next live album, “Songs from Here and Back,” a special release album that came out on May 15, 2006, one that came out from Hallmark for two months back in the day.  This is rather a hodgepodge of tunes, most of the live ones from 1989- two from back in 1974- as well as three solo studio tunes, one from Brian Wilson, one from Mike Love, and one from Alan Jardine.  You get the lineup back in 1989- Brian Wilson, Carl Wilson, Mike Love, Bruce Johnston, and Alan Jardine- plus the longtime Beach Boys backup band, the one that provides the background on the road.  The two from 1974 feature Dennis Wilson and Ricky Fataar in the mix while the solo studio recordings feature a variety of accompanying musicians.  IF you can find this one, it’s a worthy addition to one’s collection and if you can’t, well, it is what it is.  Enjoy.

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

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

  51. 2011 Tuesday: As the Debt Ceiling Crisis of 2011 continues, the U.S. Senate picks up where the House left off yesterday and passes the bill sent to the upper chamber by the lower.  From there, it journeys to the desk of President Barack Hussein Obama, who scribbles his signature on it and lo and behold, the federal government can continue operations.
  52. 2012 Thursday: In the Pakistani city of Lahore, two jihadists carry out a pair of bomb detonations at a fruit market that sadly for the customers sent way too many of them to meet with Allah far sooner than any of them planned that day while wounding loads of others.  What the hell is wrong with these people?  Meanwhile, Chi-Com authorities scoop up 20 terror suspects in Xinjiang Province.
  53. 2013 Friday: Vice President Joe Biden swears in the new United States UN ambassador, Samantha Power.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of State announces a travel warning for all U.S. citizens in Southwest Asia and North Africa as well as the closure of several embassies following threats made by al-Qaida thugs.

  56. 2016 Tuesday:  Hillary Clinton retakes the lead over her GOP challenger Donald J. Trump with a post-convention bounce.   Meanwhile, candidate Trump voices concerns that the November election is going to be rigged in the favor of his Democratic rival.  Meanwhile, following Trump criticizing Muslim gold star parents, public outrage grows against him.   Finally, airstrikes against ISIS targets in Syria amp up as the Obama administration attempts to make it seem as though his administration is ‘on the ball’ when it comes to battling terrorism.
  57. 2017 Wednesday:  President Donald J. Trump signs legislation imposing sanctions on Russia for having interfered in U.S. elections and for its actions in other parts of the world.  Elsewhere, at age 96, Britain’s Prince Phillip bids the British people farewell in his final public appearance.  After this, he would retire from further public events.

  59. 2019 Friday:  The Saudi government- in an effort to woo Western nations announces a lifting of many restrictions on women within the kingdom, allowing them to drive and to leave the country for trips abroad sans accompaniment by male family members.  Meanwhile, the U.S. formally announces that it plans on withdrawing from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty with Russia.  The Russians aren’t following it anyway so what the heck?
  60. 2020 Sunday: For the first time in 45 years, NASA and SpaceX conduct a successful water landing as the Dragon X crew capsule returns two American astronauts- Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley- to Earth after two months on the International Space Station.  No longer does the United States need to pay Vladimir Putin’s Russia $85 million a pop to send American astronauts into space which once again proves to the world that Donald Trump is not a Russian stooge. 
  61. 2020 Sunday A: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- The Beijing Bat Flu, the one Xi Jinping sent to the rest of the world, continues trashing the world as the escapee from the Wuhan Institute of Virology continues taking names and calling numbers.  Here are the stats for the globe for today: 17,852,451 confirmed cases, UP 257,910 cases, 679,794 confirmed deaths, UP 355, and 10,598,327 confirmed recoveries, UP 265,161.  In the United States, here are the stats for today: 4,740,401 confirmed cases, UP 54,187, 157,113 confirmed deaths, UP 743, and 2,304,851 confirmed recoveries, UP 11,623.  The question is, WHEN are the Chi-Coms going to pay the GIGANTIC PRICE for their crimes?
  62. 2020 Sunday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington state- here are the stats, Golden State first: 509,162 confirmed cases, 9,356 confirmed deaths, but as usual, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the Aloha State, here are the stats: 2,197 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,269 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 57,541 confirmed cases, 1,592 confirmed deaths, and like other mostly BLUE locales, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  For the heck of it, let’s look at Massachusetts.  Here are their numbers: 118.458 confirmed cases, 8,638 confirmed deaths, but like many other states, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  There is light at the end of the tunnel…
  63. 2020 Sunday C: Anxious liberals are awaiting the VP pick of former Vice President Joe Biden, expected sometime this upcoming week.  Many believe it’s going to be California Sen. Kamala Harris, a woman who has achieved every position through the alleged trading of sexual favors to achieve it.  Others think it might be the Pelosi favorite, California Rep. Karen Bass, a known fan of Fidel and Raul Castro.  Others think it might be noted ‘woman of color,’ Senator Liz Warren of Massachusetts while others ponder the pick as being Susan Rice, former National Security Advisor in the Obama administration.  Still others contend Joe Biden has no clue as to who it’s going to be and awaits notice from whomever is TRULY behind his campaign.  At one time, many of us believed it could be Michelle Obama as the top of the ticket but now, who knows- it might be angry loser Stacey Abrams.
  64. 2021 Monday: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- 199,557,806 confirmed cases, +473,151, 4,247,967 confirmed deaths, +7,596 and 180,027,906 confirmed recoveries, +401,942.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 35,893,949 confirmed cases, UP 55,711 from yesterday’s reporting, 629,859 confirmed deaths, UP 479, [vi] and 29,716,272 confirmed recoveries, UP 31,627.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [vii]  
  65. 2021 Monday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 311,417 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 92,661 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  66. 2021 Monday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,983,692 confirmed cases, 64,543 confirmed deaths, and 2,105,689 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,636,066 confirmed cases, 39,079 confirmed deaths, and 2,089,018 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 43,227 confirmed cases, 537 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 477,723 confirmed cases, 6,172 confirmed deaths, and 231,097 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., South Carolina: they have 623,947 confirmed cases, 9,915 confirmed deaths, and 583,708 confirmed recoveries. [viii]    
  67. 2021 Monday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 879,650 confirmed cases, 6,487 confirmed deaths, and 852,115 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Burundi, 167th country on the list: 7,505 cases of the virus, 38 confirmed deaths and 773 confirmed recoveries. [ix]     
  68. 2021 Monday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,838.16, DOWN 97.31 points (-0.28%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,681.07, UP 8.39 points (+0.057%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,387.16, DOWN 8.10 points (-0.18%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $71.57 per barrel, +0.27 (+0.38%).  The price of GOLD is $1,813.40 per troy oz., -8.80 (-0.48%) while the price of SILVER is $25.40 per troy ounce, -0.18 (-0.40%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,050.10 per troy oz, -6.10 (-0.58%) while the price of COPPER is $4.43 per pound, -0.01 (-0.15%).

[xiii]        
  69. 2021 Monday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.379 per gallon, $2.968 in Florida, $4.082 in Hawaii, and $3.854 in Washington state. [xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- Massachusetts: $3.032.  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- Canada: $4.739 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,595,425,431071 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping 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 Mexico, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Kuwait with $47 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.
  70. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day No. 132 for the world-famous ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the calamity befalling the nation along the southern border and Day No. 38 since her one- and only- LOL (as she always does)- visit to the slowest sector in the entire region.  Every day, approximately 5,000-10,000 illegal aliens are crossing into the United States, the advance guard of an international occupation force.  As they belittle and vilify white people using the same tactics that fat toad, Hugo Chavez, employed in Venezuela to transform his country from the most prosperous nation in Latin America to the absolute worst one in less than a decade.  What Hugo did is what the Nazis did before him and that is to single out one group, isolate it, make them highly unpopular, destroy them, and appropriate everything they own.  We must resist and the frigging Republicans must wake the f**k up.
  71. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Even though a federal judge ordered an end to the DACA program, The USCIS- the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services is acting as though the judge’s ruling means nothing.  IF President Trump had told a judge to buzz off, he would be impeached yet again, yet that senile fool Joe Biden will get away with everything until his use to his handlers ends.  Ah, well, One America News presents the current numbers of the Biden Border Debacle as follows: first, here is the cost for just this day of caring for the illegal alien invaders: $509,880,896.  Second, here is the cost for this year of caring for all the illegal aliens: $233,934,602,240.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal aliens who have crossed into the United States just this year: 2,397,642.  Fourth and final, here are the numbers for the illegal aliens estimated to be in the country as you read this: 36,397,646.  We have said since the blog’s inception that back in 2009, the numbers were around 35-50 million.  Now, we believe the numbers are closer to 75-to-100 million and this is not good, not good at all.  We must round them up, imprison them in Joe Arpaio-style tent prisons in the desert making them work, then load them onto all available transports and deport them back to whence the f**k they came.
  72. 2021 Monday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I- We learned today that the Chi-Coms are openly boasting that the Biden regime could not stop them from launching an amphibious and airborne invasion of Taiwan.  The U.S. Navy has been drawing ire over its emphasis on WOKE POLITICS rather than preparing for warfighting.  (Note- we have said this before and will say it again: the Chi-Coms although most likely ultimately victorious in invading Taiwan will suffer losses the likes of which, they cannot comprehend.  Look what the badly outnumbered U.S. Marines did to the Imperial Japanese when the latter invaded Wake Island shortly after Pearl Harbor.  The Taiwanese people are FREE people, and the Chi-Coms are communists, and the FREE people will fight to the bitter end.  We expect the Chi-Coms could easily lose 2-5 million people in the invasion, in the surrounding waters, and in the air.  Sure, a drop in the bucket for them but the global embarrassment would be humiliating to the country that wants to rule both the world and the near Solar System.  What?  Are they planning on building gulags on the moon and Mars?).
  73. 2021 Monday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– (Former) Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe says that the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing should be yanked from that country due to them letting loose the Xi Jinping Bat Flu across the world just as they also covered it up to the best of their abilities.  A new report compiled by the GOP proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that Xi Jinping’s namesake virus was allowed to leak from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Rep. Tim Burchett, R-TN 2nd CD, says there’s NO WAY that Joe Biden will go after Beijing for the crimes they’ve committed.   Meanwhile, a new poll from Rasmussen says that a majority of (brain dead) Dems want mask mandates reinstituted.’  What a swarm of ants.  One of the ants- New York City Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio says HE won’t be reinstituting mask mandates.  The dog dingus is trying to get people to return to the Big Apple.
  74. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– The Biden regime is thrashing around like U.S. Olympian Raven Saunders when she was twerking on the sidelines at the Tokyo Olympic Games this past weekend: since the Centers for Disease Control cannot stop the eviction moratorium, mouthpieces are urging sympathetic states to continue the moratorium.  (Note- look- furloughed and/or unemployed workers were getting an extra $300 per week or $1,200 per month.  WTF weren’t they paying their rent?  Landlords have bills, too, for Christ’s Sake!)  Meanwhile, Rep. Doug LaMalfa, R-CA 1st CD, says that the GOP is going to have to develop its own COVID-19 protocols.  Next, fully vaccinated Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, is being treated for a mild case of the Chi-Vi.  In other Xi Jinping Bat Flu news, Governor John Bel Edwards, DS-LA, is ordering a new round of INDOOR mask mandates.  Oh, boy.
  75. 2021 Monday K: Voting Integrity-Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Attorney General Mark Brnovich, R-AZ, says that the Democrats and far-left rabble rousers have been abusing the elections systems for years, if not decades.   Meanwhile, nearly 60 House Republicans ask a judge to toss the Department of Justice lawsuit against the State of Georgia over its new voting laws onto the scrap heap of history.  It is a bogus lawsuit filed by a fraudulent Department of Justice.
  76. 2021 Monday K: Political News I– President Donald J. Trump’s attorney said the recent order by U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland directed to the Internal Revenue Service to hand over his client’s tax returns to Congress for yet another ‘shit show’ in the House is both ‘harassment and outrageous.’  Meanwhile, Eli Lake says there’s still time for Joe Biden to ditch the crackpot idea of returning to the Iran nuclear deal talks.  We hope Joe listens, but we know he won’t. 
  77. 2021 Monday M: Political News II– Saturday Night Live cast member Michael Che was forced to scrub his social media accounts after making hateful jokes about gymnast Simone Biles.  Had he made them about a conservative, everything would be fine, but he made them about America’s favorite gymnast and here is what the bozo said: “Larry Nasser [sic] understands Simone Biles better than anyone.  He, too, had to quit doing what he loved at the pinnacle of his career because of mounting pressures.”  Elsewhere, ‘Cho-Mo’ Senator Bob Menendez, DS-NJ, and 10 European counterparts are openly condemning Joe Biden’s Nord Stream 2 ‘deal’ with Vladimir Putin. 
  78. 2021 Monday N: Political News III– Okay, here is some of what is included in the ‘bipartisan infrastructure bill’- $66 billion for railways, $658 billion to expand broadband internet access, $55 billion on clean water projects like getting rid of lead pipes, and $7.5 billion for electric vehicle charging stations.  Here is more of what is in the bill: $2.5 billion on welcome centers for migrants (we suggest minefields), $1 billion for the commission being chaired by Senator Joe Manchin’s wife (nothing like spreading a billion dollars around to buy votes), and money being doled out to various groups will be doled out by RACE and ‘gender identity’ will be recognized as a protected class- what does this have to do with frigging infrastructure?
  79. 2021 Monday O: Mass Shootings News– Over the weekend in Chicago, a long-time Democrat-controlled hellhole, 50 people were shot and five were killed.  Just another weekend in the Windy City but the body count was less than normal.
  80. 2022 Tuesday: Much talk about communist China lighting up Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi should she fly into Taiwan which we find absolutely humorous.  Shoot her down, no one would miss her.  On the serious side, IF the Chi-Coms intend to invade Taiwan- the legitimate China, the REAL China, the rightful owner of the mainland- the Chi-Coms must cross almost 100 miles of open water, dangerous water, perilous water.  Adolf Hitler was stymied by the 20 miles of the English Channel in 1940 and therefore never invaded Great Britain.  Do the Chi-Coms possess the balls to invade Taiwan?  The best way to thwart an invasion fleet is to launch drone swarms in the hundreds of thousands, perhaps in the millions.  Each drone would carry explosives and would swamp the fleet.  They would slash through the bridge windows, down the smokestack funnels and into the engine rooms, into the barrels of the deck guns, into the engines of jet aircraft waiting to launch, while underseas drones would dump mines all around the Chi-Com navy’s vessels.  The devastation would be tremendous, vast numbers of ships, men and materiel sent to the bottom in an instant.  Of course, undeclared nuclear power Taiwan could drop a BIG ONE smack dab in the midst of the invasion fleet.  Problem solved in a second.  It will be interesting to see…Chef Hector Santanamos “El Chilote” De Soto.

John Lewis lies in state outside the Rotunda on Capitol Hill so mourners can file past sans closer exposure inside the Capitol.  He becomes the first black American to have such an honor.  God bless and good journey to the other side, Rep.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 308,909 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.

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

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

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

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

189. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, JULY 08, 2022

39. 1943 Thursday: On the fourth day of the massive tank-and-air battle at Kursk, in the Soviet Union, German Field Marshal Walter Model commits the last Axis tank reserves in a desperate bid to win the battle. Carnage is horrendous what with tens of thousands killed by the hour. Smoke billows from the shells of destroyed tanks, tanks the Russians can replace which the Germans cannot.

TODAY IN HISTORY @ THE AICPENDBLOG.COM @ WORDPRESS.COM

SUMMER SESSION 2022

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 126

189. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, JULY 08, 2022:

Vice President Nelson Rockefeller, U.S. Attorney General James P. McGranery, the Allman Brothers Band featuring Jai “Jaimoe” Johanny Johnson, the Electric Light Orchestra featuring Colin Walker, the Soft Machine featuring Roy Babbington, and Chef Wolfgang Puck:

  1. 951 Thursday: The city of Paris is founded.
  2. 1099 Saturday: During the First Crusade, Christian soldiers marched around the occupied city of Jerusalem before launching their attack.  Behind the walls, the Mohammedans holding the walls laughed and jeered at them.  Little did they know that when the Crusaders finally stormed the city, many of the jihadists would be put to the sword.
  3. 1153 Wednesday: The reign of the 167th Roman Catholic Pope Eugene III comes to an end on this date.  Eugene first picked up Holy Cross and pontifical duties on February 15, 1145 and guided his global flock until today.
  4. 1497 Thursday: Vasco de Gama departs Lisbon, Portugal, bound for India around the Horn of Africa.
  5. 1608 Tuesday: Samuel de Champlain established the first French settlement around Quebec.
  6. 1623 Saturday: After 2 years and 149 days, the reign of the 234th Roman Catholic Pope Gregory XV ends.  He first became pontiff on February 09, 1621 and guided the Holy Roman Catholic Church until today.
  7. 1654 Wednesday: The first Jewish colonist to arrive in the American Colonies, Jacob Barsimmon, arrives in Manhattan. 
  8. 1663 Sunday: King Charles II of England granted a Royal Charter to Rhode Island.
  9. 1693 Wednesday: The City of New York authorized the first uniforms for police officers.
  10. 1709 Monday: Peter the Great defeated Charles XII at Poltava, Ukraine, which effectively ended the dominance of Sweden and ended its empire.
  11. 1755 Tuesday: Britain broke off diplomatic relations with France over rising tensions between the two world powers over their colonies in the New World.

  14. 1777 Tuesday: Vermont becomes the first state to abolish slavery and permits male suffrage.
  15. 1792 Sunday: France declares war on Prussia and Austria on this date.  Austria had brought troops up to the border it shared with France and threatened invasion (although it did not initiate one).  France- offended at the actions of the Austrians- said to hell with this and declared war on the Austrians and added Austria’s ally Prussia to the mix.  France always hated Prussia.  The reason the Austrians’ threatened invasion is that France was mired in its revolution and its revolutionary attitudes- much like the Bolsheviks in 1917 and onward- wanted to spread its craziness to other countries that simply weren’t having none of it.
  16. 1795 Wednesday: Kent County Free School changed its name to Washington College.  It was the first college to bear the name of the nation’s first president, George Washington.

  20. 1815 Saturday: Louis XVIII returned to Paris after the defeat of Napoleon Bonaparte.
  21. 1833 Monday: Russia and Turkey sign a mutual defense treaty.
  22. 1853 Friday: An expedition led by Commodore Matthew Perry arrived in Tokyo Bay, Japan, on a mission to seek diplomatic and trade relations with the Japanese.
  23. 1861 Monday: Confederate General Henry Hopkins Sibley becomes commander of the New Mexico Territory’s Rebel forces.

  25. 1870 Friday: The U.S. Congress authorizes the control and the issuance of trademarks.
  26. 1876 Saturday: In Hamburg, South Carolina, white supremacists- aka DEMOCRATS- attack black Republicans killing 5 of them and wounding others.  
  27. 1879 Tuesday: The first ship to use electric lights sailed from San Francisco, CA.
  28. 1881 Friday: Edward Berner, a druggist in Two Rivers, Wisconsin, poured chocolate syrup on ice cream in a dish.  To this time chocolate syrup had only been used in making ice cream sodas.

  34. 1911 Saturday: Cowgirl “Two-Gun Nan” Aspinwall became the first woman to make a solo trip by horse across the United States, arriving in New York 10 months after departing San Francisco.
  35. 1919 Tuesday: President Woodrow Wilson received a tumultuous welcome in New York City after returning from the Versailles Peace Conference in France.
  36. 1923 Sunday: Republican President Warren G. Harding becomes the first sitting president to visit Alaska.  Note: a Republican did this, not a Democrat.
  37. 1940 Monday: In Kempston, Bedfordshire, UK, future bassist and vocalist with the British band, the Soft Machine[ii]– Roy Babbington- is born.
  38. 1941 Tuesday: As the Axis juggernaut steams forward through the Baltic states, the occupiers require that ALL Jews wear yellow stars for easy identification. 
  39. 1943 Thursday: On the fourth day of the massive tank-and-air battle at Kursk, in the Soviet Union, German Field Marshal Walter Model commits the last Axis tank reserves in a desperate bid to win the battle.  Carnage is horrendous what with tens of thousands killed by the hour.  Smoke billows from the shells of destroyed tanks, tanks the Russians can replace which the Germans cannot.

  44. 1950 Saturday: President Harry S. Truman named General Douglas McArthur commander-in-chief of the United Nations forces in Korea; however, the president had to sack the general nine months later due to his insubordination in that he almost caused nuclear war between the U.S., China, and Russia.

Gavin Newsom is a POS hack politician.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 1,071 confirmed cases, 19 confirmed deaths, and 797 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor David Ige.  Finally, here are the stats for the communist overrun Ever-Red (Evergreen) State: 38,517 confirmed cases, 1,394 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm for Blue States, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries- shame on you, Governor Jay Inslee.  For fun, let’s look at the Empire State, here are their stats: 402,338 confirmed cases, 32,219 confirmed deaths, and 370,119 confirmed recoveries.  In New York, two men bear blame for all the deaths and must lose their qualified immunity: Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo and NYC Mayor Bill “Never Met a Communist I didn’t like” Di Blasio.  Both men should be in prison for their ineptitude in handling this traumatic disease from CHINA.
  71. 2020 Wednesday A: For additional fun, let’s look at the statistics for communist China, the backward Maoist nation, the place where the Xi Jinping Bat Flu had its birth: 83,581 confirmed cases, 4,634 confirmed deaths, and 78,590 confirmed recoveries.   Sadly, with the communist crackdown in Hong Kong, we have been unable to get actual stats for the communist mainland but according to our sources, times the number of cases and deaths by 10 to arrive at the true number.

  73. 2020 Wednesday C: The U.S. Supreme Court in a 7-2 vote says the Little Sisters of the Poor and other religious orders like them do not have to provide contraception to employees as Barack Hussein Obama’s Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act demanded they do.  Ba-boom!  Obama takes one in the puss!  Meanwhile, Jeffrey Epstein’s procurer and fixer Ghislaine Maxwell as of today is still alive in the jail where she is being held.  She was arrested the past Friday and is still drawing breath.   This makes SIX DAYS.

Currently, Joe is shy 155,342 deaths

[vii]    
  77. 2021 Thursday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 844,989 confirmed cases, 6,432 confirmed deaths, and 834,687 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Taiwan, aka FREE CHINA, 142nd country on the list: 15,149 cases of the virus, 718 confirmed deaths and 12,758 confirmed recoveries.

  79. 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 over $4.308 per gallon, $3.014 in Florida, $4.036 in Hawaii, and $3.826 in Washington state. [xiii]    Let’s look at one other location- Virginia: $2.944.  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- Malawi: $4.197 per U.S. Gallon. [xiv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,499,074,351,892 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS. [xv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after the United Kingdom, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Ireland with $318 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.
  80. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day No. 107 for ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 13 since her one and only trip to the southern border.   Next, here are the stats as presented by One America News regarding the calamity befalling the nation along the border and across the country: (1) Cost this Day of caring for the Illegal Alien Tsunami: $538,863,680.  (2) Cost this Year of caring for the Illegal Alien Invasion: $206,566,309,888.  Next, (3) Number of Illegal Aliens who have crossed the border in 2021: 2,117,139.  Finally, (4) Total Number of Illegal Aliens estimated to be lurking across the United States: 36,117,146.  Folks, this is a CONSERVATIVE ESTIMATE.  You see, since the inception of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day back in 2009, we estimated the number at between 35-50 million whereas now, we believe the number is closer to 75-100 million.  This simply must stop and it must stop NOW.
  81. 2021 Thursday G: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– Now here’s a good one: Joe Biden is repurposing $860 million of COVID-19 relief to care for his invasion of illegal alien brats.  You know, I remember when President Donald J. Trump repurposed some defense funds to build the wall along the border and members of my party went bat crap crazy. [xvi]. Elsewhere, on top of what Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, is sending to Texas to help quell the illegal alien invasion, she is sending another 125 National Guard troops to spend three months there.  Thank you, Governor Noem, thank you.
  82. 2021 Thursday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– In Haiti, after the assassination of the president, law enforcement engaged in running battles with various thugs.  Eventually, they began rounding some of them up including a Haitian American.  Things will NOT end well for him.  Elsewhere, former South African President Jacob Zuma turned himself into South African law enforcement authorities to answer for corruption charges.  Next, South Korea says that North Korean murdering thug dictator Kim Jong Un has lost 44-pounds.
  83. 2021 Thursday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– A new study conducted in the United Kingdom says that very few children must shelter in fear from the ‘VID.   Meanwhile, California’s shame Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra says the government has ‘every right to know the vaccination status of the American people because the government spent loads of money developing the vaccines.’  We say to Secretary Becerra: “Go screw yourself, idiot.  Let’s see you break HIPPA laws.”  Add to that Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton saying that the ‘door-to-door thing’ about going to neighborhoods house by house to check on vaccine status is NOT going to work.  Heck, we could have told you that.  Of other interest- Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci now says to people refusing to get the experimental vaccine, ‘Get over it.’  How about we get ‘over you?’
  84. 2021 Thursday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Pfizer is seeking FDA approval for a third vaccine injection.  Now, this is getting crazy.  Tucker Carlson reported this evening that people involved in vaccine trials said that problems really increased after the third injection causing people to fall out of the program.  This is getting scary.
  85. 2021 Thursday K: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– “Kooky Kamala” Harris announces the launch of a $25 million bid to corrupt U.S. elections.  Of course, she claims the money is to go to supporting democracy, but we all know that that is a load of festering crap.
  86. 2021 Thursday L: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden spoke today on the embarrassing pullout from Afghanistan.  It was difficult to decipher what the drooling moron was saying.  What we thought he said was that the withdrawal will be complete by August 31 of this year.  Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms are rushing in to fill the vacuum.  Rep. Fred Keller, R-Pa 12th CD, says that the ‘withdrawal from Afghanistan should come from a position of strength,’ not this cowardly exit.
  87. 2021 Thursday M: Political News I– Most voters say that schools should stick to teaching ‘traditional values’ and not this ‘Criminal uh, Critical Race Theory’ crap they are pushing.  Amen.  Meanwhile, Senator Tommy Tuberville says that ‘funding should be stripped from schools teaching CRT.’  Amen to this, too.
  88. 2021 Thursday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– After their initial ruling caused a backlash among the American people, the Internal Revenue Service decided that they would approve tax-exempt status for the nonprofit group, “Christians Engaged.”  Originally, the IRS announced it would not approve tax exempt status for Christian groups as they are typically ‘pro-Trump.’  Meanwhile, the Biden regime blasts Israel for destroying yet another home of a Palestinian terrorist.  Oh, well.  Next, the regime’s military wing in the Pentagon has a new report that suggests the possibility of NUCLEAR WAR is going way up.  Funny how we weren’t worried about anyone dropping nukes while Donald J. Trump was residing in the White House. [xvii]
  89. 2021 Thursday O: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch raised an important question today on Newsmax regarding January 06, 2021: did U.S. banks hand over data on their customers who were in or around the U.S. Capitol on the day of the FALSE FLAG OPERATION carried out by the Democrats to the FBI?  We believe he is onto something that should cause customers of these banks to close their accounts and go elsewhere much more friendly to them.  Elsewhere, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department has confiscated record amounts of illegal pot grows run by Mexican drug cartels within the county.  Meanwhile, an FBI task force member was ambushed, shot, and killed outside a federal building in Indiana.  Looks like the chickens are coming home to roost.  Next, prisoners sent home by the CARES Act are quivering in fear about the pandemic ending and them having to return to prison to finish their sentences.  Finally, Stormy Daniels’ pimp, uh, attorney, Michael Avenatti, received a prison sentence of 30 months for trying to extort Nike.
  90. 2021 Thursday P: Mass Shootings News– The uncle of the one-month-old tot shot in the head in Chicago over the past week says that it ‘feels like no one cares.’   In other firearm-related news, Tucson, Arizona, says it ‘won’t obey the Second Amendment sanctuary law passed by the state government.  Go in there and clean out that nest of snakes.
  91. 2021 Thursday Q: Big Tech News– Dozens of states are suing Google over its monopolistic control of commerce at its site.  We hope to see CEO Sundar Pichai stripped of his citizenship and deported back to Somalia or wherever the hell his bastard birth was.   Next, attorney Brooke Rollins says that President Donald J. Trump is ‘David’ taking on BIG TECH’S ‘Goliath.’  Rep. Brian Babin, R-TX 36th CD said that he’s ‘glad’ that President Donald J. Trump is taking on BIG TECH and their leftist allies.
  92. 2021 Thursday R: Florida State News– Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, has raised $4 million in campaign contributions during the 2nd quarter.  His opponent, Rep. Val Demings, DS-FL 10th CD, thinks she is going to topple Senator Rubio.  We don’t think so, especially after her dismal performance as one of the most BORING impeachment prosecutors in the second impeachment trial of President Donald J. Trump.
  93. 2021 Thursday S: Michigan State News– Former Detroit Police Chief James Craig- expected to run against Michigan’s authoritarian Governor Gretchen “Gravel Gertie” Whitmer in 2022 blasted the governor, her fake news allies, and celebrities backing her up.  We think Chief Craig is a lock on the governor’s mansion.
  94. 2021 Thursday T: Missouri State News– Governor Mike Parson, R-MO, signed a COVID-19 liability law into being effective August 31, 2021, that will protect all business owners from liability brought by customers unless it can be proven they willfully inflicted the Chi-Vi on their customers.
  95. 2021 Thursday U: Economic News– Weekly jobless claims came in at 373,000, higher than the anticipated 350,000 economists expected.  Joe Biden knows nothing about what to do about the economy.  Next, Tesla automotive sales in Germany grew by a record 431-percent.  Elsewhere, consumer borrowing jumped by a record amount for the American people in May of this year.
  96. 2021 Thursday V: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump is set to headline the upcoming CPAC event in Dallas, Texas, from July 09-11, 2021.  Everyone is excited because they understand that whatever the scurrilous, scumbag Democrats (and their RINO stooges) throw at him, he comes out smelling like a rose.
  97. 2021 Thursday W: Sports News– The Phoenix Suns beat the Milwaukee Bucks 118 to 108 to take a two-game lead in the 2021 NBA Finals.  Next game is Sunday night in Milwaukee.
  98. 2022 Friday: Stick around to uncover the truth along with all of us…what could be happening today?  One thing we will say- this year’s news will most likely appear next year.  Don’t want the Joestapo to come looking for us anytime soon, sons-of-bitches.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Record companies being what they are, are always seeking new and/or novel ways with which to repackage, promote, and sell an aging group’s music.  Thus, we have the new ‘studio’ album, “Stars and Stripes Volume One,” released on August 19, 1996.  Folks, this album contains re-recordings of a dozen of the band’s older songs with guests adding vocals.  We have the core group of Alan Jardine, Brian and Carl Wilson (the latter of whom would soon die from cancer), Mike Love, and Bruce Johnston doing vocals with guests such as Toby Keith, Willie Nelson, Timothy B. Schmitt, and some others.  We view it as a novelty as should you- still, completists being what they are- a record company’s dream- will most likely want to seek this album out and to then add it to their collection.  Seek it out at your favorite haunt for music- digital or physical- and see if it’s something you want.

40. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 09, 2022

2021 Tuesday I: Good news for Christians and Jews: a judge strikes down New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo’s ban on religious gatherings at churches and synagogues (but you know the cowardly fool would NEVER close mosques- they’d take him out in a heartbeat). We learn today from immigration experts that the United States has 14.5 million illegal aliens and 5 million anchor babies which is conservative estimate to be sure.

  57. 2018 Friday: In PyeongChang, South Korea, the XXIII Olympic Winter Games open.  Meanwhile, for the second time this year, the U.S. government undergoes shutdown due to lawmakers being incapable of reaching agreement on a budget bill.   Eventually, an agreement would be agreed to, and President Donald J. Trump would sign it into law thus keeping the government funded until March 23, 2018. 
  58. 2018 Friday A: In Wyomissing, Pennsylvania, famed rock-and-roll bassist Craig MacGregor, lost his fight with lung cancer on this date.  He was just 68.  He played for many years with the British rock, blues, and boogie band, Foghat, as well as with the short-lived British group, Axis Point.  The latter group featured Eddie Hardin on keyboards and vocals, Bob Tench on guitars and vocals, Charlie Whitney (guitars) and Rob Townsend (drums and percussion) formerly of Family, and MacGregor.
  59. 2019 Saturday: Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth “I’m a Cherokee” Warren[v] announces her official bid for the 2020 Democratic Party’s presidential nomination in the city of Lawrence.  How this unattractive and dishonest individual thinks she can win the presidency is beyond any of us here at the AICP-END Blogs.  She has used one of the most maligned racial minorities in the history of the country as her springboard to virtually everything she has earned in life.  She should be disqualified.
  60. 2020 Sunday: Thanks to the ineptitude (or purposefulness, we are reserving judgment at present), the death toll of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu now stands at 910 people which is higher than the reported death toll of the SARS epidemic that broke out in 2002 and lasted until 2004.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Chi-Com warplanes conducting ‘military drills’ off the coast of the Republic of China- Taiwan- circle the freedom-loving island.  This leads the Taiwanese Defense Ministry to call out their belligerent neighbors for threatening their sovereignty.  (We should give Taiwan some nukes- just saying…).    
  61. 2021 Tuesday: Eighty-two different advocacy groups call on the Biden administration to end all federal executions.  Speaking of the Biden administration, he announced plans to fire ALL Trump-appointed U.S. federal attorneys.  However, the U.S. attorney overseeing the Hunter Biden probe is NOT going anywhere soon.  Next, Joe Biden’s nomination to head the OMB vows to work with the GOP following a row on Twitter.  As the ‘re-impeachment trial’ of Donald Trump opens, neither the former president nor the ‘current president’ are making any statements.   Regarding this bogus sham waste of time, Senator Mike Lee, R-UT, says the prosecutors’ arguments are ‘ambiguous’ this after Congressman Jaime Raskin laid out the ‘charges’ against the 45th president.   
  62. 2021 Tuesday A: In communist China, the World Health Organization personnel on site says, ‘the Wuhan Institute of Virology is the UNLIKELY origination point for the Chi-Vi, the Xi Jinping Bat Flu,  There you go, the WHO covers up for their Chinese masters.   Thanks to the Wuhan Virus Crisis, in the U.S.- unless relief comes soon- millions of small businesses could close by year’s end.  Many believe that this is precisely the game plan the Dems are using because if small businesses close, everyone will be working for the massive corporations.  This is a fascist form of government in which BIG CORPORATIONS are in bed with BIG GOVERNMENT as it was in Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, and in modern-day communist China.  Evil.   Speaking of fascism, Hong Kong denies bail to pro-democracy advocate Jimmy Lai.  Meanwhile, Iran says, “Western policies could force them into building nuclear bombs’ as though they are not already working on them lickety-split.
  63. 2021 Tuesday B: In another blow to the expectations of Californians being throttled by the Newsom Regime, California High-Speed Rail Authority is seeking another $4 billion to toss down the rabbit hole on this never-ending wealth redistribution scheme.  Elsewhere, in Arizona, the Republican-controlled state Senate loses a narrow vote in which the state’s leaders and GOP leadership wanted a full audit of the crappy Dominion Voting Systems machines used- ALLEGEDLY- to throw the 2020 Presidential Election to ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden and away from President Donald J. Trump.  Meanwhile, My Pillow creator and CEO Mike Lindell calls for an open public debate on the ALLEGED election chicanery Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic software in the 2020 Presidential Election.  Amen.   Finally, Tampa Bay city government is busting the balls of Governor Ron DeSantis for not having worn a facemask at the Super Bowl.  These people doing the bitching are like body lice- annoying tidbits of nothing.
  64. 2021 Tuesday C: A federal judge in Texas has put a freeze on Joe Biden’s deportation ban.   Meanwhile, the New York Attorney General Leticia James urges the FDA to look into improving the standards on baby food.  Elsewhere, Ohio serial killer Anthony Sowell, a man who murdered 11 women of whom we know, died in prison.  Meanwhile, Mary Wilson- original founding member of the Supremes (later Diana Ross and the Supremes) dies at age 76.  Next, Palm Beach, Florida, says ‘Donald Trump can live at his own resort- Mar-a-Lago as long as he is a ‘bona fide employee.’  WTF?  Hotel magnates live in their hotels, who gives Palm Beach the right to determine who can live and who cannot live somewhere?   Finally, the pilot in the crash that killed Kobe Bryant, his daughter, and several other people is said to have become disoriented in heavy fog.
  65. 2021 Tuesday D: Tesla’s investment of $1.5 billion into Bitcoin drives a single Bitcoin up to $48,000.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Senate votes 56-44 that the second impeachment of former President Donald J. Trump is constitutional and can proceed.    One thing we learned today is that President Donald J. Trump authorized as many as 10,000 members of the National Guard to arrive in Washington, D.C. ahead of January 6, 2021, so as to maintain law and order.  Elsewhere, federal and state cybersecurity authorities are investigating an intrusion into Florida in which, an unknown entity sought to poison a town’s water supply.   Next, Senator Joe Manchin, Democrat, of the Senate Energy Committee begs Joe Biden not to scrap the permit for the Keystone XL Pipeline.   Finally, Joe Biden’s pick to lead the CIA appears to be intricately linked to Chinese businessmen with close ties to the Chinese Communist Party- WTF, Joe?  Can you sell out our country quickly enough? 
  66. 2021 Tuesday E: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 106,643,519 confirmed cases, +328,824, 2,330,839, confirmed deaths, +10,119, and 59,549,395 confirmed recoveries, +246,096.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 27,382,078 confirmed cases, up 114,433 from yesterday’s reporting, 470,660 confirmed deaths, UP 2,792, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries with NO UPDATES NOW in at least two weeks.  This tells us the Biden administration does not want them reported.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 141,265 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, YOU claimed you had a plan to defeat the communist virus, what the hell are YOU going to do about it- sit on your ass and blame everything on Donald Trump.
  67. 2021 Tuesday F: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,430,685 confirmed cases, 44,470 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,500 confirmed cases, 418 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 326,625 confirmed cases, 4,540 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: North Carolina: currently, they have 802,820 confirmed cases, 10,046 confirmed deaths but NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. 
  68. 2021 Tuesday G: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 696,528 confirmed cases, 5,171 confirmed deaths, and 633,313 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other country- France: they have 3,341,365 confirmed cases of the Beijing Bug, 79,423 confirmed deaths, and 208,925 confirmed recoveries.   We will say this: the primary purpose of the Chi-Vi was to remove the threat of Trump- the Chi-Coms accomplished that goal.  The secondary goal (or so we believe) is to ‘cleanse the world’ of the old, the infirm, the sick, and the mentally disabled.  Anyone else who died from this Wuhan Institute of Virology lab-engineered virus is just collateral damage.  Shame on the Chi-Coms!
  69. 2021 Tuesday H:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,375.83 DOWN 9.93 points (-0.032%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,007.70, UP 20.05 points (+0.14%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,911.23, DOWN 4.36 points (-0.11%).  The price of GOLD is $1,838.80 per troy oz., +1.30 (+0.07%) while the price of SILVER is $27.33 per troy ounce, -0.07 (-0.26%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,190.20 per troy oz, -4.20 (-0.45%) while the price of COPPER is $3.72 per pound, -0.000 (-0.04%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,320.60 per troy oz, -16.10 (-0.69%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $58.38 per barrel, +0.02 (+0.03%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.43 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Iranian Rial equals 42,000.00 (same as last week).  That’s what a terrorism-based economy gets you.  Next, here is the conversion for one U.S. dollar and Bitcoin: 0.000022.
  70. 2021 Tuesday I: Good news for Christians and Jews: a judge strikes down New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo’s ban on religious gatherings at churches and synagogues (but you know the cowardly fool would NEVER close mosques- they’d take him out in a heartbeat).  We learn today from immigration experts that the United States has 14.5 million illegal aliens and 5 million anchor babies which is conservative estimate to be sure.  Sources within the federal government have said the estimates of illegal aliens are close to 30-50 million illegals and Joe Biden does not want to deport them.  Speaking of Usurper Joe, he says that by April of this year, he wants schools to be open at least ONE DAY per week.  Wow.  His wife, Dr. Jill Biden says the Biden administration is going to make junior college FREE.  Another bill the taxpayers are going to fund.  Meanwhile, U.S. Transportation Secretary Mayor Pete Buttigieg says the administration is thinking about demanding NEGATIVE COVID-19 TESTS before anyone can board an airplane.  Good going, Picolo Pete!
  71. 2021 Tuesday J: We learn this evening that Joe Biden’s pick to head the Central Intelligence Agency- William Burns- is…wait for it…closed tied to communist China.  WTF is going on.  Can the people selling the country out to the Chi-Coms at least be discreet about it?  This is insane.   Next Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and Chuck Schumer are asking Biden to up the relief bill so that people will receive money for Chinese Virus burials of loved ones.  What else will the government spend our money on?  Elsewhere, Representative Lee Zeldin, R-NY, says that ‘both the Capitol Hill Riots of January 6, 2021, were as predetermined as is the farce occurring in the U.S. Senate what with the ‘re-impeachment’ or ‘second impeachment’ of President Donald J. Trump.  (NOTE- I am writing a post this Saturday in which I lay out the real reason the Dems are doing what they’re doing, and it lies within what President Trump’s defense attorneys said- IF the Democrats genuinely believed that Trump was guilty of inciting an insurrection against the government, federal charges would be brought against him.  Period.  But they haven’t which screeches of bogus impeachment.  Well, like Doug Mackey, Democrats are reaching B-A-C-K to 2016 to go after their enemies so why NOT bring federal charges against Donald Trump whenever he announces he is going to run- or even better- when he wins the GOP nomination?  Never say never).
  72. 2021 Tuesday K: The famed Aunt Jemima brand has been renamed the Pearl Milling Company.  Meanwhile, we learn that this year’s Super Bowl ratings were the worst since 2007- coming in at 91 million viewers.  It’s been a strange year, folks what with the Chi-Com Bat Virus sweeping the globe, the one the W.H.O. now says came from the Wuhan wet market.   Elsewhere, a judge informs George Soros’ handpicked D.A. George Gascon in Los Angeles, California, that he cannot- we repeat CANNOT set the law aside and do whatever the hell he wants to do like not charge thugs and criminals because it’s RACIST.  Send Gascon to county…
  73. 2021 Tuesday L: Here are the winning numbers for the Mega Millions Draw #1632 with a $68 million big pot o’ cash up for grabs: 07, 18, 21, 31, 40, and Mega 09.  Out of 80,331 winning tickets, the highest winners were THREE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $6,103 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Unlike many of their contemporaries, Fairport Convention had an attitude of ‘never say die’ and thus they continued their labors in the studio and on the road.  Today’s studio album, “Myths and Heroes,” came out on January 25, 2015, and the fans hailed it as a beautiful new effort with 13 glorious tracks, all of which being originals and the other four covers.  The band features the quintet of Ric Sanders (violins), Dave Pegg (acoustic and electric basses, and tenor mandola), Simon Nichol (guitars and vocals), Gerry Conway (drums), and Chris Leslie (mandolins, fiddles, cellos, and flutes).  Again, we encourage everyone to visit their favorite nearest site for the absolute best in music, give it a good listen, and then see if you want to add it to your never-ending, always-growing collection like us.  We think you will be glad you did.

WE THANK EVERYONE FOR JOINING US AT WORDPRESS.COM AND FOR AIDING US IN CONTINUING TO DO THE WORK WE TOOK UPON OURSELVES MORE THAN A DECADE AGO

We feel compelled to share with our new readers that we are an OPINION SITE and not a NEWS SITE although we do report the news.  If anything, we are big history buffs which is why we have been going strong since early 2009…

ENDNOTES:

[i] Beginning in 2019, Democratic Chairman of the Intel Committee- Adam Schiff, congressman from California- would employ the same tactics to bring down President Donald J. Trump but would fail…miserably.  The loser is a POS while Trump has done nothing his political enemies accuse of him doing.

[ii] In 2020, many believe this loser might throw his hat into the race for the Democratic Party’s 2020 nomination.  Go for it, John, go for it, you, and Hillary Clinton both and if Michelle wants to run, she should throw her bonnet into the running, too.

[iii] Millions of Americans believe there should be an asterisk after the name of the 44th president because they believe he was foreign-born thus being disqualified from holding the highest office in the land.  Many of us here at the AICP-END Blogs agree with this assessment and believe that most of the readership does, too.

[iv] Many speculate that Donald Trump funded this loser via strawmen so he would remain in the race mucking things up for others like Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz.  At one time, Gov. Kasich was a normal guy but like many left-leaning RINOS, somewhere along the way, he “lost it.”

[v] The previous Friday, most of the women of color working for “Lyin’ Liz” in Arizona left the office, citing hostile workplace issues.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

32. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 01, 2022

1968 Thursday: During the Tet Offensive in Vietnam, the photo seen around the world: Saigon police chief Nguyen Ngoc Loan executes a captured Viet Cong officer with a bullet shot to the head. This would cause outrage around the First World with many claiming it to be an atrocity. We, however, have a different view: the guy was a communist terrorist and under the rules of modern warfare had NO rights whatsoever. The military codes in existence around the world recognize that terrorists, spies, guerillas, and others operating out of uniform can be executed in the field.

  82. 2021 Monday:  The Republic of (FREE) China- Taiwan- says that Chi-Com warplanes have violated its airspace with increasing regularity.  We suspect the communists in Beijing are gauging the nation’s air defenses in preparation for an attack.   Next, the Biden administration demands the military junta in Myanmar to stand down NOW which could be the first major foreign policy challenge of the new administration.  Big whoop.  Elsewhere, a major storm is hammering the northeastern part of the United States which is permitting left-wing governors to call off vaccinating their citizens against the Chinese Virus.  Speaking of the Chi-Com influenza, a researcher who developed the saliva test to detect the virus has just died.  Finally, the WHO team in Wuhan, China, is going to meet with the provincial CDC who will tell them, “NOTHING TO SEE HERE.”  Speaking of the Kung Flu, the Chinese have a new method of testing for their lab-engineered pandemic, first reported by Rush Limbaugh on his radio program LAST week- an anal swab.  Images of Chinese citizens walking like penguins following this horribly invasive test is all over the place.  What a bunch of sick f**ks.

Trump under the bus blaming the 45th president’s ‘speech’ for what happened on January 6, 2021.  NOT an effective way to seek to remain a stalwart in the GOP there, senator, especially when evidence continues mounting showing that the riot was planned weeks ahead of the day of the mob riots.  We know the pipe bombs were planted the previous day.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Unlike many of their contemporaries, Fairport Convention had an attitude of ‘never say die’ and thus they continued their labors in the studio and on the road.  Today’s next album, “Festival Bell,” came out on January 18, 2011, and the fans hailed it as a beautiful new effort with 14 glorious tracks, 10 of which being originals and the other four covers.  The band features the quintet of Ric Sanders (violins), Dave Pegg (acoustic and electric basses, and tenor mandola), Simon Nichol (guitars and vocals), Gerry Conway (drums), and Chris Leslie (mandolins, fiddles, cellos, and flutes).  Again, we encourage everyone to visit their favorite nearest site for the absolute best in music, give it a good listen, and then see if you want to add it to your never-ending, always-growing collection like us.  We think you will be glad you did.

Monday, February 01, 2021, Today in History:  

WE THANK EVERYONE FOR JOINING US AT WORDPRESS.COM AND FOR AIDING US IN CONTINUING TO DO THE WORK WE TOOK UPON OURSELVES MORE THAN A DECADE AGO

We feel compelled to share with our new readers that we are an OPINION SITE and not a NEWS SITE although we do report the news.  If anything, we are big history buffs which is why we have been going strong since early 2009…


Tuesday, February 01, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We began presenting the music of the Mothers of Invention and of Frank Zappa beginning on Monday, 21-January-2013 and concluded the presentation on Monday, 13-May-2013.  Please seek them out, we believe you will enjoy the music of this famed man and his band.

[ii] 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.

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

[iv] Something else of importance to note is that the U.S. was a guest of the South Vietnamese, helping them fight off the communist threat from North Vietnam and from communist thugs- the Viet Cong- in the South.  Thus, they had the right to do whatever they deemed necessary to do.  At the time of the execution, the battle was in full swing with the outcome possibly in doubt, so the SV police official did what he felt he had to do.  It is what it is and one other thing everyone should remember: IF you are going to fight a war against guerillas, do not allow the press free access to combat operations.  We believe we lost the war in South Vietnam because of two important issues: (1) the military did not capture territory and then hold it as it did in every previous war but beat the enemy and then allowed them to return the moment we left.  (2) The press cost us the war because it portrayed nothing but negative images to the home front, thus sapping the American people’s will to fight and helping sow the seeds of division by creating dissension among the American public.  Virtually every older scumbag in left-wing news today got their start shaping the antiwar movement in the 1960s and especially after 1968.  

[v] We began offering the music of the Doors on Saturday, 18-February-2012 and concluded them on Monday, 02-April-2012.  We encourage everyone to seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[vi] We look forward to doing the music of this famed funk-rock band.  The Ohio Players are amazing and what is even more exciting is the fact that the band is still alive today and performing to this day.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

Poor Justin Trudeau- as hundreds of thousands of trucks filled with tens of thousands of angry drivers followed by other freedom-loving Canadians (and Americans) descend on Ottawa, security officials whisked him and his family away to a hidden bunker. What a flipping pansy!

DAY THREE HUNDRED-AND-SEVENTY-FIVE OF THE BIDEN REGIME

29. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, JANUARY 29, 2022, UPDATE A:

Kansas Day (Observance)

Poor Justin Trudeau- as hundreds of thousands of trucks filled with tens of thousands of angry drivers followed by other freedom-loving Canadians (and Americans) descend on Ottawa, security officials whisked him and his family away to a hidden bunker.  What a flipping pansy!  

  1. 2022 Saturday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole: 373,006,035 confirmed cases, +3,015,957, 5,676,020 confirmed deaths, +9,351 and 294,605,332 confirmed recoveries, +2,350,466. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 75,481,122 confirmed cases, UP 354,176 from yesterday’s reporting, 906,861 confirmed deaths, UP +1,796,[i] and 45,882,520 confirmed recoveries, UP 124,330. We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ii]    
  2. 2022 Saturday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 457,577 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 94,225 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in ELEVEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 374 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.            
  3. 2022 Saturday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 7,977,054 confirmed cases, 80,064 confirmed deaths, and 7,896,990 confirmed recoveries (since California won’t report recoveries anymore, we are doing it).  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,549,518 confirmed cases, 64,647 confirmed deaths, and 3,675,284 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 215,034 confirmed cases, 1,173 confirmed deaths, and 213,861 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,295,988 confirmed cases, 10,768 confirmed deaths, and 377,753 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Minnesota: they have 1,263,193 confirmed cases, 11,532 confirmed deaths, and 1,234,930 confirmed recoveries.[iii]   
  4. 2022 Saturday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day- Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 2,759,031 confirmed cases, 8,658 confirmed deaths, and 2,302,093 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Fiji, 132nd country on the list: 62,373 cases of the virus, 798 confirmed death and 59,937 confirmed recoveries.[iv]                 
  5. 2022 Saturday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,725.47, UP 564.69 points (+0.021%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,770.57 UP 417.79 points (+3.13%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,431.85, UP 105.34 points (+2.43%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $87.29 per barrel, +0.68 (+0.79%).  The price of GOLD is $1,790.10 per troy oz., -3.00 (-0.17%) while the price of SILVER is $22.49 per troy ounce, -0.19 (-0.82%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,011.60 per troy oz, -10.20 (-0.01%) while the price of COPPER is $4.33 per pound, -0.10 (-2.16%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,376.93 per troy oz., +0.83 (+0.03%). The price of RHODIUM is $16,800.00 per troy oz., +0.00 (+0.00%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,285,000.00 per CNY/T, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,059.00 per USD/T, -39.50 (-1.27%). The price of ZINC is $3,626.00 per troy oz., -4.50 (-0.12%).   The price of COCOA is $2,494.00 per USD/T, +43.00 (+1.75%).  The price of LUMBER is $1,024.90 USD 1,000 board feet +30.00 (+3.02%).[vi]   Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000026.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.36 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.90 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.79.    In Australian Dollar, one greenback equals 1.43 and in Azerbaijani Manat, a buck equals 1.69 and in Bahamian Dollar, one dollar equals 1.0 of theirs.[vii]       
  6. 2022 Saturday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $4.637 per gallon, $3.347 in Florida, $4.394 in Hawaii, and $3.954 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Tennessee- $3.094.  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 109th HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- India: $5.222 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $29,908,195,658,181 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[x]  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 Singapore the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Saudi Arabia 2 with $136,000,000,000 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).  
  7. 2022 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- President Joseph R. Biden Jr. put Vice President Kamala Harris in charge of the border 303 days ago.  She last showed up to do an hour’s work 217 days ago.  Shocking.  Okay, here is the cost of caring for the illegal aliens for 29 days now: $2,085,942,470.  Next, here is the cost of caring for the dregs of the Third World for 394 days: 409,136,332,182.  Next, here is the estimated number of illegals who have swarmed across the southern border like cockroaches out of a crack in the wall over the course of 29 days: 237,028.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE LOW ESTIMATE for the number of illegal aliens roaming our country: 42,431,220.  We believe every single illegal alien sucking away at the taxpayers’ teats must be scooped up, imprisoned, and then deported after they work off what they have cost our country in lost resources.  The more illegal aliens in the country, the lower wages go, and the less benefits are available, the higher the rents, cost of used cars, groceries, health care.  They clog our hospitals and our medical clinics; they slow down the education of our children because our children have to drop to the education levels of the illegal aliens.  In order to make our country great again and not continue down the road of transforming it into a FOURTH WORLD CESSPOOL, we must round them up and get them the hell out of the country ASAP (after forcing them to work off their debts).  (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).
  8. 2022 Saturday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I- As the trucker convoys full of freedom-loving patriots bear down on Ottawa, Canada, the government has whisked chicken-shit Prime Minister Justin Trudeau- a son of one of the Rolling Stones (most likely, Keith Richards or Ronnie Wood)- and his family to a secure location.  The failed prime minister has the nerve to call the truckers ‘fringe people.’  No, the fringe is YOU and the other liberal namby-pamby losers.  We hope the truckers surround Ottawa and shut the city down.  Make government answerable to you, government is not your master just as it isn’t ours.  Elsewhere, United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris “BoJo” Johnson is going to visit Ukraine and Russia in the hopes of stifling the coming conflict.  Former U.S. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, DS, says that ‘American lives will be at stake if Russian invades Ukraine.’
  9. 2022 Saturday H: Foreign News-Overseas News II- Italy’s President Sergio Mattarella has won a second term.  A year or two older than President Joe Biden, President Mattarella has control of all his mental faculties while our president, well, he’s rather lacking.  In other foreign and overseas news, North Korea conducted a missile test today with the longest-range missile since 2017.  In other news, Russia is moving naval exercises scheduled early next month that would take place 150 miles off of southern Ireland due to Dublin raising cane about them seeing as how it’s a NATO member.  At least it’s not the Chi-Com or Iranian navies both of which should be sunk at the earliest possible opportunity.  Just saying, folks.
  10. 2022 Saturday I: Political News I- A new report says that the chair of the Democratic National Committee is seeking a way out of the job.  That’s right, freshman chair Jaime Harrison is looking for a diplomatic way to bail on the job he assumed in January 2021.  Things are going so badly for the Biden regime that everyone remotely connected to it is seeking a way to escape ahead of the oncoming political destruction.   Next, Congresswoman Claudia Tenney, R-NY 22nd congressional district, says that Governor Kathy “Heil Hitler” Hochul, DS, is a ‘petty tyrant.’  Meanwhile, Black Lives Matter goons have sent a Canadian charity $6.3 million with which to purchase a mansion.  Don’t you love these ‘civil rights freedom fighters’ sucking up money and then pocketing it for their own purposes?
  11. 2022 Friday J: Political News II- Famed legal scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz says that the ‘New York Times’ “mistakes” always injure the right but never the right.’  In other news, President Donald J. Trump told the tens of thousands of assembled American patriots at his rally tonight in Texas that the Democrats will ‘never turn the Lone Star State BLUE.’  He also encouraged the vast crowd to boycott cable companies and BIG TECH that ban, censor, or cancel conservative outlets.  Next, at a caucus in the Keystone State today, U.S. Senate candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz, GOP, saved a man who was experiencing some sort of trauma.  Good for you, Dr. Oz.  Speaking of Pennsylvania, a judge threw out the state’s mail-in voting scheme, noting it’s not ‘constitutional’ which it’s not- the state legislature must amend the state’s constitution.
  12. 2022 Friday K: Political News III-  Arkansas’ moronic Governor Asa Hutchinson, RINO, and head of the GOP’s wing of the National Governor’s Association says that President Donald J. Trump should ‘not lead the party or the country again.’  This is the problem with the GOP- having people who think more like Democrats and worse, behave like Democrats.  Thank God Sarah Huckabee Sanders is going to become the next governor of that state in November.
  13. 2022 Friday L: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws- First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3634 what with a $12 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 09, 10, 22, 25, 34, and Mega 27.  Out of 93,439 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $16,518 apiece.  The first winning ticket was sold at Food 4 Less in Manteca, California 95336 while the second was sold at Pacific Petroleum Company in El Monte, CA 91733.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #943 with a jackpot of $104 million up for grabs: 02, 15, 38, 54, 65, and Power 11. Out of 66,062 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were two people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $17,576 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next release from guitar legend Richard Thompson was a four-CD box set: “Walking on a Wire” (August 26, 2009).  This colossal collection is a glorious collection of the guitar-slinger’s repertoire from the years.  One finds a nearly 60-page booklet that goes into great detail about the life and times of this phenomenal artist and priced at less than seventy-five bucks, what the heck can you lose?  If you have yet to introduce the music of this lesser-known guitar virtuosos, well this is a glorious (and economical) way in which one can do it.  We hope you rush out to your nearest seller of classic rock music and add it to your collection.  You will be extremely glad you did, that we guarantee.
