  52. 2015 Tuesday: Hackers manage to break into the computer system of the Internal Revenue Service and steal the personal data of at least 100,000 taxpayers.  The part of the system into which, the scumbags break is one that permits taxpayers to retrieve prior filed tax returns, something the hackers will use to file their own ‘tax returns’ and other nefarious acts.  Thanks, John Koskinen.
  53. 2016 Thursday: The Chi-Coms demonstrate their sexism for all to see today when the Xinhua News Agency lays into Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen by labeling her a ‘political extremist’ and then saying that because she is unmarried and has no children is mentally and emotionally unstable.  That is what the Chi-Coms are, a bunch of racists and sexists.  F**k them.

  57. 2020 Tuesday: Communist China’s Wuhan Bat Virus Crisis continues racking up numbers around the world although millions of Americans are leaving their homes and returning to normal lives no matter what authoritarian-leaning governors demand they do.  Good for the freedom-seekers!  Here are the numbers for the day: 5,559,130 confirmed cases, 348,610 confirmed deaths, but 2,271,268 confirmed recoveries which dwarfs the numbers of deaths.  If only Blue State governors would report the numbers of recoveries! 
  58. 2020 Tuesday A: Here are the numbers for the United States: 1,715,457 confirmed cases, 100,136 confirmed deaths, but 360,561 confirmed recoveries the latter number of which, Blue State governors (most of them, that is) won’t report.  In the three states where the AICPENDBLOG.COM has chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the numbers, Golden State first: 96,733 confirmed cases, 3,814 confirmed deaths, but ZERO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Gov. Gavin Newsom, you sir, are little more than a statewide embarrassment.  Shame on you.  Next, here are the numbers for the Aloha State: 643 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 592 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Gov. David Ige.  Finally, here are the numbers for the Evergreen State: 20,133 confirmed cases, 1,078 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries; Governor Jay Inslee, you are a worthless POS.

  61. 2021 Wednesday A: NOTE: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 289,149 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 170,460 deaths  
  62. 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: 3,780,845 confirmed cases, 63,010 confirmed deaths, and 2,022,699 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,316,142 confirmed cases, 36,647 confirmed deaths, and 1,934,257 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 35,924 confirmed cases, 496 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 432,993 confirmed cases, 5,780 confirmed deaths, and 211,014 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., North Carolina: they have 999,567 confirmed cases, 13,031 confirmed deaths, and 972,066 confirmed recoveries.[ix]    President Donald J. Trump says that the early investment in ‘VID vaccines probably saved tens of millions of American lives, the very same vaccines for which, drooling old Joe Biden takes complete credit.

  65. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.170 per gallon, $2.871 in Florida, $3.918 in Hawaii, and $3.565 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- U.S. Northern Marianas Islands: $4.329.  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- Tunisia: $2.913 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,332,690,445,701 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  66. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Today is Day 65 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be holding this prestigious NO-SHOW job and ‘no show’ she has.  No one has seen her anywhere near the southern border and so it goes.  Meanwhile, Texas Attorney General tells Newsmax that ‘Joe Biden’s border policies are a STIMULUS for the Mexican cartels.’  Moving on, outrage is growing over the federal government’s dumping of illegal aliens across the interior of the country- and even in Hawaii, according to Chefs Lilah and Itzi- in the dead of night.  Buses or airliners bring them in, dump them, and then take off lickety split.   According to Newsmax, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro “I Hate My Country” Mayorkas wants to welcome even more illegal aliens that what are already flooding across our border.  WTF?  Hunting licenses anyone?
  67. 2021 Wednesday G: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– According to news reports, Joe Biden has ordered U.S. spy agencies to prepare a definitive report on the origins of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  We suspect the final report will shill for the Chi-Coms and drop the blame somewhere else like, uh, say, on the U.S. military.  Remember when the Chi-Coms tried to blame the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s COVID-19 outbreak on U.S. military assets that somehow got it into communist China and let it go in Wuhan?  Incredible.  Still, there are morons who will indeed believe it.  Speaking of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, at a U.S. Senate hearing today, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, said that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci must testify about all the money given to that ‘medical institution.’  Hear-hear!  Elsewhere, Attorney General Eric Schmitt, R-MO, has launched a lawsuit against both the Chinese Communist Party and the Wuhan Institute of Virology over its costly mishandling of the Kung Flu Pandemic.  Excellent.  Finally, as the Chi-Vi lab leak theory appears more and more like the God’s honest truth, it has exposed that there are NO checks on the so-called ‘fact checkers.’  Hell, we knew that.
  68. 2021 Wednesday H: Business News– Wall Street’s new watchdog- SEC Chairman Gary Gensler- told Congress today that special scrutiny will fall on cryptocurrencies and on SPACs- special purpose acquisition companies.   In other business news, President Donald J. Trump says that when HE left office, the United States was ‘energy independent’ and that the U.S. was the number one exporter of energy to the rest of the world.  This occurred within the span of four years whereas now with feeble Joe Biden lurking about the White House, we are importing our energy supply and word has it that gasoline could soon hit $7 per gallon.   Revolution anyone?   Finally, Jeff Bezos is set to hand over Amazon’s CEO job on July 5, 2021.
  69. 2021 Wednesday I: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– Arizona has banned mass mailing of election ballots in all future elections.  Excellent.  As for the 2020 Elections audit in that state and in others, the scrutiny continues. 
  70. 2021 Wednesday J: Joe Biden Regime News I– Joe Biden continues his war on President Donald J. Trump.  Today, he purged FOUR Trump appointees[xviii] on the U.S. Commission for Fine Arts.  You go, Joe, you go.  In other regime news, critics are questioning the wisdom of the upcoming Joe Biden-Vladimir Putin summit.  (Note- we think Vladimir is going to bulldoze a drooling, feeble old Joe into a ditch and cover him up).  Elsewhere, the Biden regime sidestepped questions regarding as to whether the Chi-Coms would pay ANY PRICE for inflicting their Chi-Com pandemic upon the world.
  71. 2021 Wednesday K: Whacked-Out News Of The Day– The Dems are pushing for the spending of $7.1 trillion for all the crazy programs the losers are currently pushing.  This amount of money is more than the money spent fighting World War II and supplying our allies with the tools of war.  Why not just allow the Chi-Coms to buy our flipping country?
  72. 2021 Wednesday L: Political News I– a new AARP poll says that a vast majority of Americans over age 50 are staunchly opposed to any cutting back of Medicare and Social Security to pay for the massive amount of deficit spending going on under the Biden regime.  Who can blame them?  Elsewhere, a new CEI poll says that the public does NOT want to pay for massive Green New Deal spending which millions of Americans view as being little more than another transfer of wealth from those possessing it to those too lazy to go out and earn it.  Meanwhile, a judge smacks down the motion by CNN to dismiss the defamation lawsuit brought against them by esteemed legal scholar, professor, and attorney Dr. Alan Dershowitz. 
  73. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News II– President Donald J. Trump told Newsmax TV that ‘communist China took extremely diligent care of both Hunter and Joe Biden.  Amen.  Elsewhere, former Pennsylvania RINO senator and CNN babbling head Rick Santorum- a fellow who has run for the GOP presidential nomination on numerous occasions- says it’s ‘time to invest in real infrastructure spending.’  (Note- he was fired last week from CNN for having said something derogatory about Native Americans, so it appears he is attempting to remain relevant).   In other news, Kelley Paul told ‘Rand Paul haters’ that her husband and she have guns.  They are always under threat.  Next, former state prosecutor Aramis Ayala threw her hat in the ring to challenge Rep.  Val Demings, DS-FL 10th congressional district, in 2022.  Excellent.  Finally, crackpot Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. has convened a grand jury that will meet for six months seeking evidence into the crimes of President Donald J. Trump.  Yet another persecution by the fleas nipping at the ankles of the 45th president.
  74. 2021 Wednesday N: Political News III– Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, has formed a new PAC sparking rumors she may be running for the White House in 2024.  Next CNN’s Jeff Zucker says ‘it may have been wrong for Chris “The Curmudgeon” Cuomo to advise his older brother, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov, on his myriad sex scandals.  We thought a while back that CNN forbade the ‘Curmudgeon’ NOT to cover his gubernatorial brother yet advise him he did.  NO wonder CNN is a bogus ‘network.’  Meanwhile, unabashed supporter of President Donald J. Trump, Sean Parnell is running for the U.S. Senate seat in Pennsylvania, the one held by retiring RINO Senator Patrick Toomey.  
  75. 2021 Wednesday O: Political News IV– Next, David A. Chipman- Joe Biden’s nominee to head the ATF- says he ‘advocates for the arrest of every American who owns an AR-15 rifle.’ (Note- this doofus claimed during the Waco, Texas, Branch Davidian compound assault back during President Bill Clinton’s administration, that the Branch Davidians used TWO .50 caliber machine guns to shoot down TWO ATF helicopters which is a total flipping lie.  Never happened).  Finally, the U.S. Department of State shut down the investigation into what was occurring in Wuhan, China, an investigation to which, we alluded earlier as being ongoing because Joe Biden had ordered U.S. intel agencies to determine what the hell happened.  Crazy. Senator John Kennedy, R-LA, asked doctors on Capitol Hill as to WHY they spiked the previous administration’s investigation into getting answers to the 2019-2021 global Chi-Com pandemic.
  76. 2021 Wednesday P: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– the ALLEGED murderer of University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts- Cristhian Bahena Rivera- claimed at his murder trial today that ‘mystery men’ abducted the university student as she jogged along a road.  Camera evidence from the day she disappeared- July 18, 2018- showed that Rivera was closely following her in his car.  The POS illegal alien claims he did not do it but everyone sure as hell believes he did.   IF the illegal had not been in the country, this crime would not have occurred.  Execute him.
  77. 2021 Wednesday Q: Popular Culture News– New wolf killing laws have led to a push to revive U.S. protection laws for the wild beasts.  Next, actress Vanessa Redgrave is now distancing herself from the Kevin Spacey comeback film.  Elsewhere, U.S. Senate candidate Mark McCloskey, R-MO, quipped that when a ‘thug kills a cop, new coverage is completely different.’  True.  
  78. 2021 Wednesday R: Mass Shootings News– In the age of decrepit old Joe Biden, yet another mass casualty event took place today.  In San Jose, California, at a transit yard serving Silicon Valley, a shooter shot and killed at least coworkers and wounded numerous others.  Law enforcement arrived on scene, but the shooter took his own life before the cops could engage him.  The shooter has been identified as Samuel Cassidy, a 58-year-old maintenance worker at the station.  He had worked there for eight years and had some sort of beef with his fellow employees.
  79. 2021 Wednesday S: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– Lebanon, Ohio, becomes the 26th U.S. city around the country to declare itself a ‘sanctuary city,’ not for legions of seething, stinking illegal aliens but for the unborn in yet another blow to the Pro-Death Movement.[xix]
  80. 2021 Wednesday T: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto And Powerball Draws– Tonight, we have the Super Lotto Draw #3563 with a $49 million jackpot up for grabs and the Powerball Draw #849 with a $236 million pot on the line.  First, here are the results for the Super Lotto: 01, 06, 08, 23, 42, and Mega 12.  Out of 133,804 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $11,259 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at (1) Quik Stop in Vacaville, CA 95687 (2) Valley Liquors in Santa Ana, CA 92704 (3) Liquor Plus, La Mirada, CA 90638 and (4) Valero, Tustin, CA 92780.   Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw: 02, 08, 21, 34, 62, and Powerball 16.

[iii] We hope to promote the music of David Bowie within the next decades.

[iv] Spiders from Mars will occur around same time as the David Bowie presentation.

[v] On Wednesday, 14-June-2017, we began presenting the music of the Guess Who and of its individual members- including Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Randy Bachman, Burton Cummings, and Bravebelt.  The entire discography ran from the above date through Sunday, 01-October-2017.  We hope you will check them out.

Trump- Rodney Mims Cook Jr., James C. McCrery II, and Duncan G. Stroik- still have their jobs although the axe may be coming for them, too.

  75. 2020 Sunday: While it would be great to inform the world that the COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis had vanished, sadly, it has not nor have Blue State governors desire to keep everyone in lockdown mode.  Thankfully, people are standing up and disobeying these totalitarians and with ever-warmer weather coming, people will no longer allow political losers to cage them, willingly; we will fight back.  Here are the global stats for the day: 5,400,604 confirmed cases, 344,760 confirmed deaths, and 2,175,682 confirmed recoveries, the last number of which is amazing- nit gives us hope.

Ige.  Finally, in Washington where hack Governor Jay Inslee holds dictatorial power, here are the numbers: 19,756 confirmed cases, 1,061 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Washingtonians need to recall Gov. Inslee, too, the man is a political hack and must go.

Currently, Joe is shy 171,917 deaths  
  79. 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: 3,778,275 confirmed cases, 62,944 confirmed deaths, and 2,020,385 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,311,941 confirmed cases, 36,502 confirmed deaths, and 1,924,136 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 35,901 confirmed cases, 496 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 430,639 confirmed cases, 5,764 confirmed deaths, and 210,550 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Ohio: they have 1,097,866 confirmed cases, 19,709 confirmed deaths, and 1,056,441 confirmed recoveries.[ix]

  81. 2021 Monday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,393.98, UP 186.14 points (+0.54%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,661.17, UP 190.18 points (+1.41%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,197.05, UP 41.19 points (+0.99%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $65.99 per barrel, -0.06 (-0.09%).  The price of GOLD is $1,881.80 per troy oz., -2.70 (-0.14%) while the price of SILVER is $27.87 per troy ounce, -0.04 (-0.14%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,180.60 per troy oz, +3.00 (+0.25%) while the price of COPPER is $4.54 per pound, +0.01 (+0.28%).[xi]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,734.55 per troy oz, -48.50 (-1.74%).[xii] The price of RHODIUM is $27,750.00 per troy oz., -250.00 (-0.89%).[xiii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000026.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.42 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.85.     In Bahraini Dinar, one greenback equals 0.38 and in Bangladeshi Taka, a buck equals 84.39 and in Barbadian Dollar, one dollar equals 2.00 of theirs.[xiv]   In other business news, Amazon is expected to acquire MGM as soon as tomorrow.  Wow.    
  82. 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- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.161 per gallon, $2.872 in Florida, $3.890 in Hawaii, and $3.561 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- Puerto Rico: $2.901.  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- Indonesia: $2.815 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,324,954,724,281 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  83. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Today is Day 63 of ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris’ reign and she is nowhere to be seen.  News reports suggest that she is applying pressure to Guatemala to do something to halt the flow of illegal aliens pouring out of Honduras and El Salvador like vermin out of a sewer.  Does “Kooky Kamala” carry any weight?  We doubt it.   Elsewhere, the Biden regime has dropped a plan in which it would hold “tender age” illegal aliens at U.S. military bases.  (Note- how about holding them at Gitmo, there Joe?  We do not want more illegal aliens pouring into the country, you feeble old f**k)
  84. 2021 Monday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– The Chi-Coms are warning BOTH the United States and South Korea to butt out when it comes to Taiwan, the REAL China, the FREE China.  The Chi-Coms appear determined to isolate and then conquer the freedom-loving Taiwanese which means that if Beijing launches an all-out assault, feeble Joe Biden will still be down in the basement of the White House spanking his wank.  Meanwhile, Chi-Com stooge Russia is accusing the United States of violating the New Start Treaty’s limitation on nukes.   Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is off to the Middle East to try to keep the ceasefire between Israel and the Untermensch in the Gaza Strip on track as well as to secure aid for said Untermensch.  Such is the Biden regime’s priorities.
  85. 2021 Monday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– Formerly referred to as the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci because in the eyes of liberals, he could do no wrong but now referred to by the AICPENDBLOG.COM as Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci, the ever-incorrect doctor now says ‘you know, there could be some funny business going on in Wuhan what with gain of function experimentation’ or so many words to that effect.  That tells us that once again, “Phony Tony” spit on his finger, held it up, and determined which way the wind was blowing.  By the end of the week, he will flipflop in another direction.  Speaking of the Wuhan Flu, U.S. intelligence agencies are investigating as to whether monkey business was indeed going on within the Wuhan Institute of Virology.   
  86. 2021 Monday I: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information II– In other Xi Jinping Bat Flu, Governor “Gravel Gertie” Gretchen Whitmer, DS-MI, has been blasted over disobeying her own rules by going to the Land Shark Bar, pushing two tables together so that she and another 8-9 friends could sit around the same table together.  In Michigan, ONLY six people can sit at the same table unless, of course, you are some loser like “Gravel Gertie.”  Remove this B**CH from office NOW.  Elsewhere, the U.S. government is warning U.S. citizens not to travel to Japan due to rising Chi-Vi numbers there which sows more doubt on the long-delayed Summer Olympics.   Next, the Ohio GOP is blasting Governor Mike DeWine, RINO, over his ‘vaccine lotto’ which they call a ‘gross misuse of Ohioans tax dollars.’   Finally, Rep.  Jeff Van Drew, R-NJ 2nd congressional district, says that ‘something is wrong in Wuhan’ and that we must get to the bottom of it.  (Note- the Chi-Coms are waging asymmetrical warfare on us via hacking, pandemics, monetary devaluations, and business acquirement which is why we must eliminate these scumbags as a global power).
  87. 2021 Monday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– Arizona state Representative Mark Finchem, R-11 District, says that the Democrats are TERRIFIED at what the 2020 Election Audit in Maricopa County, Arizona, is going to turn up.  We hope it is the beginning of the end for the Biden debacle. 
  88. 2021 Monday K: Joe Biden Regime News I– Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, has launched a new legal strategy with which to do battle with the Biden regime.  Next, the GOP is slamming the Biden regime’s plan of hiring a new army of IRS agents with which to terrorize the American people and to shake every nickel out of their pockets so as to fund the multi-trillion ‘plans’ the regime floats one after another.  (Note- like the Ancient Romans, we suspect the Bidenistas will proscribe (i.e., outlaw) political enemies so the regime can then seize their assets via civil forfeiture.  This is what dictators do).  Meanwhile, the Biden regime is trying to pressure GOP lawmakers into giving in on their ‘infrastructure bill.’  Screw “Pro-China Joe.”   In other news, 500 former Biden campaign employees signed a letter to the usurper in the White House demanding he stand up for Palestine and screw Israel.  (Note- these group-signed letters are little more than propaganda bulls**t.  Pay no attention to them).
  89. 2021 Monday L: Miscellaneous News I– “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis, R-FL, signed a bill into law that will permit citizens of the Sunshine State to sue BIG TECH over de-platforming issues.  Excellent.  Let’s go after Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and other scumbag ‘social media’ entities.  Elsewhere, leftists are pushing ahead with their ‘Retire Breyer’ campaign to remove U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer- a reliable liberal vote- so they can get a bunch of rabid, frothing-at-the-mouth liberals onto the high court.  As you know, Justice Breyer opposes PACKING THE COURTS.  Meanwhile, a top MAGA Ohio senatorial candidate Jane Timken, RINO, most likely will not get support from President Donald J. Trump over her failure to condemn a RINO GOPPER in her state who voted to impeach President Trump.  Good.  Boot the RINOs into the nearest dumpster. 
  90. 2021 Monday M: Miscellaneous News II– A new study suggests that the numbers of great white sharks along the northern California coastline is going way up.  “Jaws,” anyone?  Stay out of the water.   Meanwhile, new reports suggest that the top police officer on the scene at the death of black man Ronald Greene down in New Orleans back on May 10, 2019- Lt. John Clary- withheld video of the incident suggesting coverup.  (Note- be prepared for a new round of Black Lives Matter riots).  In other news, Greg Kelly of Newsmax reports that Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka the FLY, aka AOC, aka Baby Evita, aka Sandy Cortez, said to “Latino USA” podcast that she is in therapy over the events of January 06, 2021.  (Note- if we had been on Capitol Hill that day and near this skank, we would have thrown her to the wolves.  Remember- she LIED to the world and said she heard them outside her office looking for HER.  Enough with the theatrics, you dumb, ignorant c**t).
  91. 2021 Monday N: Joe Biden News– Fuddled old Joe Biden purportedly is the author of a new Tweet in which, he condemns the Anti-Semitism occurring around the country.  Everyone has seen Palestinian vermin assaulting Jews in the streets, outrageous crimes that must stop NOW.  Any Palestinians here in the U.S. who are neither citizens or have legal right to be here must be scooped up and dumped back in the Gaza Strip.[xviii]   In other news that is devastating for the regime, a new Reuters/IPSOS poll says that ’53-percent of Republicans view President Donald J. Trump as the ‘true president.’  Duh!
  92. 2022 Tuesday: You know the drill…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Although the Beach Boys were on the decline, the next album, “Wild Honey,” came out on December 18, 1967, and is one we absolutely love and wholeheartedly recommend.  The lineup features Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals and saxophones), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), and Bruce Johnston (vocals and bass) as it was all hands-on deck.  The album features nothing but quality material beginning with the upbeat, “Wild Honey,” to the captivating “Aren’t You Glad,” to a cover of Stevie Wonder’s, “I Was Made to Love Her,” to the live classic, “Darlin’,” to the playful, “I’d Love Once Just to See You.” Also on the album is a raucous “Here Comes the Night” to yet another long-time live classic, “Let the Wind Blow.”  The other songs on the album are not filler but all quality material.  The Beach Boys were growing beards, sporting longer hair, and wearing modern-day clothing like the rest of the wild and crazy acts of the late 1960s.  We hope you will seek this one out and definitely make it a part of your daily listening pleasure.  You will love it.

  68. 2020 Saturday: More information continues coming to light about how the communist Chinese have been working on bat viruses for the past 15-20 years.  The question is WHY?  Some say it’s because of SARS which caused numerous deaths when it broke out a decade or so ago while others believe- us, too- that it is for biowarfare research.  Well, it appears that COVID-19 did manage to jailbreak the Wuhan Institute of Virology and away we go.  Now dictator for life Xi Jinping says he welcomes a W.H.O.-led investigation into the origin of the Wuhan Virus when it ends.  When it ends?  And the W.H.O.?  The World Health Organization does the bidding of Xi Jinping so why would anyone believe anything it or the communists in Beijing say?  Here are today’s stats, first for the globe: 5,288,392 confirmed cases, 340,875 confirmed deaths, and 2,102,557 confirmed recoveries the last of which gives us hope as the number of recoveries far outweighs deaths.
  69. 2020 Saturday A: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the United States: 1,656,906 confirmed cases, 97,414 confirmed deaths, and 334,452 confirmed recoveries.  Now, we head to the breakdown of the three states in which, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington state, California first: 90,631 confirmed cases, 3,708 confirmed deaths, but as usual, ZERO confirmed recoveries because Gov. Gavin Newsom continues playing politics.  He and his regime believe that IF they continue NOT publishing the number of recoveries, Californians will be afraid but next week when we begin seeing temperatures soar to over 100 degrees, people are going to disobey all governmental orders and edicts.  We won’t forget WHO is destroying the economy and It’s NOT President Donald J. Trump.  No, it’s Democrat governors.  Here are the stats for Hawaii: 647 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 579 confirmed recoveries.  Here at the statistics for Washington state: 19,265 confirmed cases, 1,050 confirmed deaths, and ZERO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Come on, Gov. Jay Inslee, release the true stats, you worthless POS.
  70. 2020 Saturday B: Our contacts in Hong Kong continue scoffing at the numbers put out by the communists in Beijing.  Communist China claims 82,974 confirmed cases, 4,634 confirmed deaths, and 78,261 confirmed recoveries while Hong Kong claims 1,066 confirmed cases, 4 confirmed deaths, and 1,029 confirmed recoveries.  Our sources claim the numbers for communist China are more like 780,000 confirmed cases, 400,000-plus deaths, and about 1,700,000 confirmed recoveries.  Thank you for the info, please stay safe, Hong Kong!  Free Hong Kong!  Free Macau!  Free Taiwan!  Free Tibet!  Free Mainland China!  Time to return to the Two-China Policy by which, we recognize Taiwan as the legitimate government of the mainland and the People’s Republic of China as a usurper government.  We must bring Taiwan back to the United Nations and restore their seat on the U.N. Security Council as it was before the communist takeover.

  76. 2021 Sunday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.161 per gallon, $2.874 in Florida, $3.907 in Hawaii, and $3.563 in Washington state.[xii]    Let’s look at one other location- Guam: $4.345.  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- Uzbekistan: $2.693 per U.S. Gallon.[xiii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,321,440,516,014 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xiv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  77. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– today is Day 62 for ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris in this job and guess what- she has yet to visit the southern border to do the job. 
  78. 2021 Sunday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– Outrage is growing over Belarus forcing down Ryanair Flight 4978 over its territory to seize a critic of thug ruler Alexander Lukashenko, journalist Raman Pratasevich.  The flight was coming from Athens, Greece, on the way to Vilnius, Lithuania, and as it traversed Belarusian airspace, fighter jets came alongside the aircraft while ground control warned the pilots of a bomb aboard the craft.  The flight then was directed to land at Minsk where the authorities went aboard and arrested Mr. Pratasevich.  Of course, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and other world leaders- including NATO!- condemned the Lukashenko government for this criminal act.  Question- who will do anything about it?  (Note- any members of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day will be careful as to where we fly so as to avoid any kind of illegal rendition threats).
  79. 2021 Sunday H: Fourth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award Updates– The “Amazing” Dr. Tony Fauci has made it into the running for the 2021 Award that will be awarded in January 2022.  Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci is on the list because he is little more than a hired gun political hack who will babble whatever those funding his lunacy tell him to say.  Who can remember ‘masks were not necessary,’ then ‘masks were,’ then ‘maybe googles, too,’ then ‘maybe no goggles,’ then ‘perhaps two masks,’ then ‘perhaps three masks,’ as well as ‘schools should reopen’ and yet they are not open?  Yup.  He has earned his place in the running this year- Chef Pedro.
  80. 2021 Sunday I: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– Oh, the gift that continues giving- thank you, communist China, thank you.  According to reports, India which is suffering some massive numbers of the Wuhan Flu also is seeing a dreadful additional effect, the so-called ‘black fungus,’ which in medical parlance is mucormycosis that centers around the eyes, nose, and mouth and can cause death in about half the cases reporting it.  According to the Indian government, they have close to 9,000 cases of this diabolical accompaniment of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  And you question as to whether this evil disease was created in a Chi-Com lab funded by the devious Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci.
  81. 2022 Monday: As you know, we await the news of the day…stick around and discover the truth…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys were at a crossroads as far as which direction to go.  Fun at the beach was being replaced with mind trips via smoking the ganja and dropping the big LSD.  Like everyone else, the Beach Boys were expanding their consciousness via the weed and psychedelics and the album composer Brian Wilson was working on- “Smile”- was too far out for the rest of the group and so they released a subpar one entitled, “Smiley Smile” on September 16, 1967.  Although the album was no “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” (Beatles), “Their Satanic Majesties’ Request” (Rolling Stones), “Face to Face” by the Kinks, or “Ogden’s Nut-Gone Flake” (Small Faces), it produced one of the all-time greatest hits of the era: “Good Vibrations” and a lesser one, albeit a live staple, “Heroes and Villains.”  The lineup features Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals and percussion), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), and Bruce Johnston (vocals and bass).  We love this album and understand that 55 years on, it’s still a glorious album to be sure.  We hope everyone will seek this one out, give it a good listen, and then make it a part of your daily listening pleasure- we believe you will be joyous that you did.

  65. 2011 Saturday: Christian radio broadcaster, Harold Camping, predicts that at 6:00 p.m. around the world, the Rapture for all Christians would begin.  We guess it did not!

  69. 2015 Thursday: After an oil pipeline burst two days previously, cleanup at Refugio Beach on the California coastline continues unabated.  Approximately 21,000 gallons flowed out to sea while another 105,000 gallons on the land.  
  70. 2016 Saturday: In the hinterlands of Afghanistan, a U.S. drone strike reportedly kills Taliban leader Mullah Akhtar Muhammad Mansour.  Good riddance to a POS terrorist.   Meanwhile, longtime drummer with Megadeth[xii], American Nick Menza dies at age 51. 
  71. 2017 Sunday: In Nassau Colosseum in New York City, Barnum & Bailey Circus gives its final performance after 146 years.  They do this because of changing attitudes (people being corrupted by bleeding heart liberals sniveling and whining) and near-constant lawsuits by PETA goons and other animal rights activists.  What a shame. 
  72. 2018 Monday: In the western part of Iran, toadstools poison at least 800 people and kill at least 11.  Look, learn to tell the difference between noxious fungi and edible ones, dimwits.  Meanwhile, former President Barack Hussein Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama sign a multi-million-dollar deal with Netflix to produce programming.  Talk about buying influence!
  73. 2019 Tuesday: In Chef Vladimir Gdansk’s home state of Washington, the government there passes a law making the state the first one in the country to legalize HUMAN COMPOSTING.  WTF is wrong with Governor Jay Inslee and his band of crazed far-left liberal Democrats.  Might as well feed the deceased to the pigs.    
  74. 2020 Thursday: Thanks to communist China, another 2.5-million Americans file for unemployment benefits last week, bringing the total of unemployed Americans to 38 million or 14.7-percent of the workforce, a number not seen since the depths of the Great Depression.  Even worse, it all happened over the course of a single month.  Meanwhile, polls show President Trump’s approval ratings at 44-percent (take them with a grain of salt- or two!) and disapproval at 54-percent.  We shall see. 
  75. 2020 Thursday A: Here are the global statistics for the Chinese Virus- aka COVID-19, aka the Kung Flu, aka the Wuhan Virus Crisis- for today: 5,014,943 confirmed number of cases, 328,462 confirmed number of deaths, but 1,909,701 number of confirmed recoveries.   Here are the figures for the United States: 1,604,862 confirmed number of cases, 94,965 confirmed number of deaths, but 306,171 number of confirmed recoveries which is great.  In the three states in which, the AICPENDBLOG.COM has chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, California first: 84,057 confirmed number of cases, 3,436 confirmed number of deaths, but typical of ultra-left-wing states, ZERO mention of the number of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for Hawaii: 643 confirmed number of cases, 17 confirmed number of deaths, but 578 number of confirmed recoveries which is extraordinary.  Finally, in the once-proud but now socialist-liberal hellhole, Washington, here are the stats: 18,971 confirmed number of cases, 1,037 confirmed number of deaths, but like California, no reported number of confirmed recoveries which tells you all you need to know about the regime running Olympia.
  76. 2020 Thursday B: As far as COVID-19 numbers go, communist China has changed their numbers somewhat.  Here are their current figures: 82,967 confirmed number of cases, 4,634 confirmed number of deaths, but 78,249 number of confirmed recoveries.   Sources in still-free Hong Kong report the number of cases to be well over one million, that the death toll approaches 750,000, with the number of recoveries being unclear.  Free Hong Kong!  Free Tibet!  Free Macau!  Free Taiwan via making them a separate nation once again with their own seat in the United Nations.  Enough is enough with indulging the Chinese Communist Party, let’s return to the Two-China Policy!  It is interesting to note that Beijing is now trying to crack down on Hong Kong’s independence while the rest of the world is fighting Wuhan’s biowarfare.  We shall see.
  77. 2021 Friday: COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 166,437,117 confirmed cases, +593,180, 3,456,597 confirmed deaths, +11,880 and 147,247,215 confirmed recoveries, +81,890.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,851,561 confirmed cases, UP 26,177 from yesterday’s reporting, 603,380 confirmed deaths, UP 628, [xiii] and 27,397,359 confirmed recoveries, UP 45,382.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[xiv]   
  78. 2021 Friday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 286,756 Chi-Vi deaths in the United States- President Biden, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 172,853 deaths  
  79. 2021 Friday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,775,535 confirmed cases, 62,855 confirmed deaths, and 2,017,518 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,304,860 confirmed cases, 36,446 confirmed deaths, and 1,911,782 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 35,726 confirmed cases, 494 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 428,323 confirmed cases, 5,749 confirmed deaths, and 209,794 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Illinois: they have 2,373,453 confirmed cases, 24,935 confirmed deaths, and 2,275,243 confirmed recoveries.[xv]    
  80. 2021 Friday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,290 confirmed cases, 6,397 confirmed deaths, and 832,331 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Algeria, a former part of the French Empire: 126,434 cases of the virus, 3,405 confirmed deaths and 88,066 confirmed recoveries.[xvi]   In other news related to the Chi-Coms (after all, they did give the world the Xi Jinping Bat Flu on purpose), the FDA is warning everyone against using syringes manufactured in that country because they have a habit of breaking off in the arms of patients.  Yet another attack on the United States by the communist goons.   
  81. 2021 Friday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,207.84, UP 123.69 points (+0.36%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,470.99, DOWN 64.75 points (-0.48%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,155.86, DOWN 3.26 points (-0.078%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $63.88 per barrel, +0.30 (+0.47%).  The price of GOLD is $1,881.80 per troy oz., +5.10 (+0.07%) while the price of SILVER is $27.66 per troy ounce, +0.17 (+0.63%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,170.90 per troy oz, +1.50 (+0.13%) while the price of COPPER is $4.51 per pound, +0.03 (+0.64%).[xvii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,783.06 per troy oz, -68.97 (-2.42%).[xviii] The price of RHODIUM is $28,000.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%).[xix]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000027.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.43 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.93.     In Afghan Afghani, one greenback equals 77.56 and in Albanian Lek, a buck equals 100.70 and in Algerian Dinar, one dollar equals 132.81 of theirs.[xx]     
  82. 2021 Friday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.158 per gallon, $2.881 in Florida, $3.885 in Hawaii, and $3.558 in Washington state.[xxi]    Let’s look at one other location- Wyoming: $3.036.  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- Russia: $2.510 per U.S. Gallon.[xxii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,313,748,920,305 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxiii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  83. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe–  Today is Day 60 of ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris’ reign.  Where is she?  NO one has any “Kooky Kamala” sightings or information on this illusive member of the Biden regime.  Meanwhile, the tidal wave continues along the southern border with mostly young, military-aged males coming across, some of them decked out in new camouflage gear.  We are becoming the Roman Empire.  We cannot control our borders and we will come to regret it especially since we have an UNELECTED ‘administration’ in the White House.
  84. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden Regime News I–  The White House proposes lowering the proposed ‘infrastructure bill’ to $1.7 trillion in the hopes the GOP will bite.  Later in the day, the Republicans said, “Hell, no.”  Back to the old drawing board.  Next, the Biden regime says that there will be NO requirements for foreign visitors to show proof of Chi-Com virus vaccination.  However, we expect the Dems are going to continue pushing Americans to have ‘COVID-19 passports.’  (Note- how soon before the Bidenistas require everyone to undergo anal swabs like they do in communist China?)  Meanwhile, Joe Biden names a special envoy to North Korea.  Big whoop.  Our money’s on Bill Richardson.
  85. 2021 Friday H: Political News I– After a mysterious letter on the letterhead of the Capitol Hill Police Department, one written by an ANONYMOUS ‘member of the squad that admonished Republicans for their resistance to the January 06, 2021, Capitol Hill Riots- the greatest FALSE FLAG OPERATION IN AMERICAN POLITICAL HISTORY- the Department said today the letter was ‘not them.’  (Note- Democrats always love ANONYMOUS postings so they can make it seem like there are many of them lurking in the shadows or that they are whistleblowers or worse, to tar and feather their opponents without having to take incoming.  We have seen this many times before and we will continue seeing it again- it’s what these cowards do).
  86. 2021 Friday I: Political News II– The FBI is investigating the discovery of SEVEN NOOSES dangling from the rafters at the site of an Amazon plant under construction.  The picture we saw of ONE noose did indeed appear to be a genuine noose and not the garage door draw-down that Bubba Watson was crying and sniveling about prior to a race.  We are sure they will track down the culprits and when they do it will be yet another FALSE FLAG OPERATION.  It almost always is.   Next, Governor Spencer Cox, R-UT, a backing a resolution to band the teaching of Critical Race Theory.   Good.  Elsewhere, former U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr says that ‘militantly secularist public schools’ have proven to be a disaster and that things must change.  Finally, even though Joe Biden abolished it, President Donald J. Trump’s 1776 Commission is meeting anyway.  Yet another sign that Joe Biden is going to be evicted from the White House soon.  
  87. 2021 Friday J: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1661 has a $515 million jackpot on the line for some lucky person or persons.  Here are the numbers: 06, 09, 17, 18, 48 and Mega 08.  Out of 247,392 winning tickets, the highest winners were NINE people who had FOUR numbers plus the MEGA for a prize of $6,665 apiece.
  88. 2022 Saturday: If we fail to do it this year, we will do it next year.  It is what it is and besides…we have to be cautious of the new Disinformation Governance Board.  Yeah, right.  Screw them and screw the administration.

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

SPRING SESSION 2022

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 189

136. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, MAY 16, 2022:

Vice President Levi P. Morton; U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Norman J. Coleman; U.S. Interior Secretary James Harlan; U.S. Secretary of State William H. Seward; U.S. Treasury Secretary Daniel Manning; Black Sabbath featuring Ronnie James Dio, King Crimson featuring Robert Fripp, Nazareth featuring Darrell Sweet, Nirvana featuring Krist Novoselic, Robin Trower featuring James Dewar, Savoy Brown featuring Roger Earl, and the Who:

  1. 1003 Monday: The 140th Roman Catholic Pope John XVII assumes his role as the Vicar of Christ on this date.  He would guide his global flock from today until November 06, 1003.
  2. 1605 Monday: The 233rd Roman Catholic Pope Paul V became the shepherd of all Christians on this date.  He would guide his global flock from today until January 28, 1621.
  3. 1611 Monday: Future 240th Roman Catholic Pope Innocent XI is born Benedetto Odescalchi.  He would pick up his Holy Cross on September 21, 1671 and would lead his global flock from then until August 12, 1689.
  4. 1770 Wednesday:  Marie Antoinette, age 14, married the future King Louis XVI of France, who was only 15 years old.
  5. 1771 Thursday: The Battle of Alamance, a pre-American Revolutionary War battle between local militia and a group of rebels called the Regulators, took place on this date in Alamance County, North Carolina.
  6. 1792 Wednesday: Denmark abolishes the slave trade.
  7. 1801 Saturday: In Florida, N.Y., future 24th U.S. Secretary of State William H. Seward is born.  He would serve under Presidents Abraham Lincoln and Andrew Johnson from March 06, 1861, to March 04, 1869.  During this time, he bought Alaska from the Russians, something many saw as foolhardy and a waste of taxpayers’ money.  In fact, so many derided the purchase, they called it “Seward’s Folly;” that is, until massive gold deposits were discovered there.  In 2019, the 45th president of the United States sought to buy Greenland from Denmark, and everyone laughed at him, including the Europeans.  Imagine how important Alaska is to the United States geopolitically and the same could be true of Greenland.  We shall see.
  8. 1817 Friday: Regular steamboat service up-and-down the Mississippi River begins on this date.
  9. 1824 Sunday: The future 22nd Republican vice president of the United States—Levi P. Morton—is born in Shoreham, Vermont, on this date.  He served under President Benjamin Harrison from March 04, 1889, to March 04, 1893.
  10. 1827 Wednesday: In Richfield Springs, N.Y., future first U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Noman J. Coleman is born.  A future Democrat, Secretary Coleman would serve under President Grover Cleveland from April 03, 1885, to February 14, 1889.
  11. 1831 Monday: The future 37th U.S. Treasury Secretary Daniel Manning is born.  A future Democrat, he would serve under President Grover Cleveland from March 08, 1885, to March 21, 1887.
  12. 1860 Wednesday: At Chicago, the Republican Party selects Abraham Lincoln as its candidate for the presidency of the United States.
  13. 1861 Thursday: The Confederate government offers war volunteers a $10 premium to join the ranks.
  14. 1863 Saturday: During the Vicksburg Campaign, the bloodiest fighting occurs at Champion’s Hill in Mississippi.
  15. 1865 Tuesday: The 8th U.S. Interior Secretary James Harlan assumed office on this date.  A Republican, he served under President Andrew Johnson from today until August 31, 1866.

Stanton, falling one vote short of the two-thirds majority required to convict; 10 days later, the trial ended after two other articles of impeachment went down in flames, too.  The problem was Johnson wanted to follow the wishes of assassinated President Abraham Lincoln who wanted to treat the South with leniency while Lincoln’s holdover Cabinet members wanted to crush them.

  26. 1920 Sunday: Pope Benedict XV- the 258th Roman Catholic Church pontiff- canonized Joan of Arc.  Meanwhile, former Republican Vice President Levi Morton died in Rhinebeck, NY, on his birthday at age 96.

  29. 1939 Tuesday: The government began its first food stamp program in Rochester, New York; under future President Barack Obama, it is at the highest levels ever before seen.  Elsewhere, the Philadelphia Athletics and the Cleveland Indians met at Shibe Park in Philly for the first baseball game played under lights in the American League.  
  30. 1940 Thursday: Prime Minister Winston Churchill returns to London from Paris as the Nazi juggernaut rolls across France.  For the Germans, the conquest of France is going better than expected.  French troops are in full retreat while the British are struggling to reach the Channel Coast.  General Heinz Guderian’s XIX Panzer Corps is breaking away from the rest of the steam-rolling army to try to beat the Brits to the coast so as to complete the trap and bag tens of thousands of prisoners.

  33. 1944 Tuesday: The first load of 180,000 Jews arrives at Auschwitz Concentration Camp.

  43. 1975 Friday: Japanese climber Junko Tabei became the first woman to reach the summit of Mt. Everest.  Meanwhile, Muhammad Ali scores a technical knockout over Ron Lyle in the 11th round of their heavyweight title fight.  Lyle’s pro record went to 30-3-1 while Ali’s record went to 47-2 and he retained the WBA, WBC, and Ring Magazine’s heavyweight champion of the world boxing titles.  Ali’s next fight would be against Joe Bugner in June.  Lyle’s next fight would be against the legendary Earnie Shavers in September.

  58. 2014 Friday: California burning- near San Diego, California, authorities inform the public that at least 20,000 acres have gone up in smoke within the county.   This is the toll of 11 wildfires.  This crap goes on year after year because Democrats will NOT permit proper forest management, won’t build new dams to collect fresh water instead of allowing it to flow out to sea, and putting so many restrictions atop PG&E and other power companies to fight global warming by pursuing renewable energy goals that are unrealistic.  The state requires good governance and it’s not from the Democrats.

  62. 2018 Wednesday: As talks on a summit between North Korea and the United States continues, Pyongyang says that it ‘might cancel the talks if the U.S. continues demanding unilateral disarmament of its nuclear weapons.  They know what happened to Libya that gave up its WMDs and things did not end well for the regime of Moammar Gaddafi.   Likewise, talks that were supposed to occur between North and South Korea are canceled as a protest of U.S. demands.
  63. 2019 Thursday: According to the Global Drug Survey, English-speaking peoples are more likely to get drunk throughout the year than do, non-English speakers, with the British getting drunk the most, an average of 51 times per year.  Folks, this is bogus information as Russians drink more than anyone and communist nations’ citizens (or authoritarian ones) drinking more than anyone anywhere else.   Elsewhere, the Trump administration finally does something that should have happened long ago and that is to cancel $929 million federal grant funding the disastrous California High-Speed Rail project, a project that seems to enrich Democratic politicians and their Chi-Com overseers.  (Note- we await Elon Musk’s Hyperloop which will make the train what it is- an expensive boondoggle).
  64. 2020 Saturday: Thanks to communist China, the Wuhan Virus Crisis continues as the disease continues causing problems around the world.  However, information coming from independent sources within the totalitarian state report as many as 750,000 cases of the coronavirus with possible number of deaths ranging from 150,000-to-250,000.  Since the authoritarian state won’t tell the world the truth, we must rely on these brave sources willing to put their lives and those of their families at risk to get the truth out to the rest of the world.  Here are the global statistics for today: 4,626,632 confirmed cases what with 311,363 confirmed deaths but 1,679,428 confirmed recoveries which is amazing, the number of recoveries compared to deaths.  In the United States, we have 1,497,244 confirmed cases, 89,420 confirmed deaths, but 272,525 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states where we have chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington state, here are the stats, state by state, beginning first with the Golden State: 76,793 confirmed cases, 3,204 confirmed deaths, but of course, 0 confirmed recoveries- California, give us the information!  You are no better than flipping communist China!  For Hawaii, we have 638 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 564 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Gov. Ige.  For the once great state of Washington, now beset by a socialist state government, here are the stats: 18,288 confirmed cases, 999 confirmed deaths, but like that fellator Gov. Gavin Newsom in California, NO number of confirmed recoveries because Gov. Inslee won’t share the stats.  Vote these scumbags out of office as soon as possible.  
  65. 2021 Sunday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 163,716,770 confirmed cases, +6,113, 3,393,335  confirmed deaths, +117 and 143,320,593 confirmed recoveries, +77,970.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,715,951 confirmed cases, UP 20,704 from yesterday’s reporting, 600,147 confirmed deaths, UP 308,[x] and 27,136,020 confirmed recoveries, UP 38,423.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[xi]   
  66. 2021 Sunday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 283,944 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 175,665 deaths.     
  67. 2021 Sunday 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: 3,768,962 confirmed cases, 62,687 confirmed deaths, and 2,011,220 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,292,004 confirmed cases, 36,085 confirmed deaths, and 1,885,265 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 33,761 confirmed cases, 492 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 424,930 confirmed cases, 5,684 confirmed deaths, and 205,072 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Grand Princess Ship: they have 122 confirmed cases, 7 confirmed deaths, and 115 confirmed recoveries.[xii]

  70. 2021 Sunday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.128 per gallon, $2.893 in Florida, $3.862 in Hawaii, and $3.535 in Washington state.[xviii]    Let’s look at one other location- Utah: $3.359.  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- United Arab Emirates: $2.247 per U.S. Gallon.[xix]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,294,956,742,867 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xx]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  71. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– And they used to complain about President Donald J. Trump using Department of Defense funds to defend the southern border, we learn today that Joe Biden has diverted $2 billion from federal healthcare programs to care for illegal aliens overrunning the border.  Wow.   Meanwhile, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich says that Joe Biden should relieve “Kooky Kamala” Harris of her duties as border czar because in 54 days in this position, the least popular woman in the United States has yet to visit the border.
  72. 2021 Sunday G: Foreign News / Overseas News–  Australia announces it is going to keep its borders closed to all but its own citizens returning home until mid-2022.   Next, the U.S. Department of Defense says that ‘yes indeed, Israel has the right to defend herself.’  Hell, we already know that.  They are on a crusade to eliminate Hamas and other Islamist scum from the planet.  We say continue. 
  73. 2021 Sunday H: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– the recount of ballots in Arizona has already yielded evidence that criminal activities did indeed occur in the subsequent hours after the 2020 Election.  There is word that ‘Senator’ Mark Kelly could be recalled, and that Martha McSally returned to her position.  We await further developments.

  75. 2021 Sunday J: Miscellaneous News I–  Joe Exotic is seeking an early release from the slammer due to a possible cancer diagnosis.   Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, 1,500 trailers meant to house the homeless are sitting vacant in parking lots.  In other news, the FBI has re-classified the Alexandria, Virginia, baseball shooting of a few years back as ‘domestic terrorism.’  The dumb SOBs said at first it was a ‘case of suicide by cop.’  How flipping stupid do you think all of us are?  The ‘domestic terrorism’ call was the ONLY call.  (Note- for the BIG GOVERNMENT folks, they need another generation or two of misinformed souls before they can begin pulling the scams on us).
  76. 2022 Monday: We know, we’re behind…

  66. 2021 Friday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, there have been 283,148 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 176,461 deaths.

  70. 2021 Friday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.121 per gallon, $2.896 in Florida, $3.850 in Hawaii, and $3.530 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- Tennessee: $2.889.  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- Azerbaijan: $2.227 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,286,444,952,247 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  71. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Soon, the centurions guarding our southern border may step aside.  U.S. Customs and Border Patrol officers are chafing beneath the ultra-left-wing policies of the Biden regime.  Senator Tommy Tuberville, R-AL, says that CBP and ICE are being overwhelmed by the flood pouring across the border (which is why we encourage the laying in of minefields, anti-personnel, anti-vehicle, anti-boat obstacles, layers of concertina razor wire out into the middle of the Rio Grande as well as Foo Gas pits (liquified napalm) in high-traffic areas for illegal aliens.  We must do whatever we must do to save our country).
  72. 2021 Friday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– thanks to the massive cash infusion dumped into the laps of the Palestinian thugs, rockets continue flying across the border between Gaza and Israel- as well as southbound from Lebanon and westbound from Syria- into Israel.  The Israelis are taking them down, but the barrages are growing, and the Joe Biden regime won’t stand with Israel.  Where are the other signatories of the Abraham Accords?  Why are they NOT demanding the human fecal matter in Gaza stop the attacks?  In other horribly shocking news, the United States is sending ADDITIONAL FINANCIAL AID to the Palestinian maggots in Gaza.  We say the only aid they need is a few dozen neutron bombs.  Reclaim the land.
  73. 2021 Friday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information I–  President Donald J. Trump touts his vaccines and says that ‘Joe Biden had NOTHING to do with them.’  True, absolutely true.  Meanwhile, evangelical pastor Franklin Graham is warning Christians NOT to wait too long and miss out on getting the Chi-Vi vaccines.  Uh, Pastor Graham- we are not going to get this crap injected into our bodies.  It is unlike any other vaccine in the world.  It is RNA-based as no other vaccine in the history of medicine is.   Elsewhere, Wal-Mart says that vaccinated patrons will no longer have to wear face masks while New York and New Jersey- no matter what ‘the science’ says are going to require facial coverings for everyone.  Period.
  74. 2021 Friday I: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information II– Next, drooling old Joe Biden says ‘it’s a wonderful day that the masks can come off’…yet, somehow, they aren’t.  Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi says that ‘NO matter what the Centers for Disease Control says, everyone in the House chamber will wear masks except when speaking on the floor.’  Oh, well.   Elsewhere, a new poll says that young people believe that in order for everyone to return to work and/or school, they are going to have to get the Bat Fu Yuk vaccine or no go.  The youngsters have drunk long and deep from the well of Kool-Aid.  Speaking of this insanity, Delta Airlines says (get this) ‘ALL new hires must get the China Virus vaccine but existing employees, well, they don’t have to…’  WTF?
  75. 2021 Friday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News–  As if we required additional proof that the 2020 Elections were corrupt in a variety of states, Dominion Voting Systems WON’T provide the passwords for their tabulators to the Arizona Senate’s investigation into election integrity last November.  IF there was ever a reason to go to war with Canada, this is among the top reasons.  Canada- force YOUR company to cooperate or Americans will begin boycotting your crap-hole country.  Speaking of 2020, loser Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, the darling of the Democratic Party now that she has lost her position as GOP Conference chair- says she ‘regrets voting for Donald Trump in 2020.’  Oh, really- YOU voted for President Trump?  We find that difficult to believe.
  76. 2021 Friday K: Political News I–  the House GOP elected Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY, to fill the shoes of the disloyal Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, today.  President Donald J. Trump gave her a thumb’s up seal of approval.   Speaking of the president, we hear that MAGA rallies will commence soon, most likely in the early summer.[xviii]  Fantastic.  Next, Governor Doug Ducey, RINO-AZ, now refuses to accept any additional federal money for expanded unemployment benefits and will instead offer EVERY employee who returns to work a $2,000 incentive.  Excellent.   In other news, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez aka AOC aka Baby Evita aka the Fly aka Sandy Cortez is expressing TERROR of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district.  Rep. Greene is puzzled as to WHY the so-called “FLY” is fearful of debating her Green New Deal with Rep. Greene?  If she believes in the GND, then she needs to debate it in public.
  77. 2021 Friday L: Political News II– Recently, an Antifa protester was heard to say, “I CAN’T WAIT UNTIL BLACK PEOPLE ARE LYNCHING WHITE PEOPLE.”  So much for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  (Note- we predicted years back that it would be a few years before Antifa, and BLM began carrying out their own beheading videos of people they claim to be enemies.  That’s why we have guns).  Next, Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, has labeled Hamas what it is: a terrorist group.  Good.  Next, the U.S. House of Representatives agrees on a ‘bipartisan panel’ to investigate the events the ‘Capitol Hill Riots’ of January 06, 2021, the largest FALSE FLAG OPERATION in the history of America and her politics.   We learn from Tucker Carlson this evening on Fox News Channel that the U.S. Department of Justice has loads of unreleased photographic evidence that could blow the entire sham out of the water.  This, we got to see.  Moving on, a recent Rasmussen poll says that liberal news viewers are woefully uneducated on the massive rise in violent crime across the country.
  78. 2021 Friday M: Political News III– A federal judge in Alabama upholds an anti-riot bill.  Next, a new anti-abortion bill in Texas is expected to receive Governor Greg Abbott’s signature.  Meanwhile, Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom is fighting to protect his job now and is offering $30 million tax breaks to initiate new film and TV projects, the very same ones he drove out of the state to seek less-expensive locations for their work.  Next, since Amazon had access to a mailbox used by its employees, the union vote they won in the Peach State could be overturned.  Whoa.  We are surprised the workers ‘didn’t vote’ to unionize.  That seemed mighty peculiar that all of a sudden, the became lovers of Jeff Bezos.  Wow.
  79. 2021 Friday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– In another detestable (and anti-American) Biden regime news, ‘Usurper Joe’ is going to cancel President Donald J. Trump’s ‘Garden of American Heroes’ project.  What a bum.   Speaking of the ‘drooler,’ Rep. Tim Burchett, R-TN 2nd congressional district, says the ‘Joe Biden White House is out of control.’  Meanwhile, regarding the aforementioned continuation of mask mandates, Joe Biden- always out of step with whatever is going on, says ‘it’s a momentous day for America that we no longer have to wear masks.’  What?  In other Biden regime news, Joe tossed out President Donald J. Trump’s ban on illegal aliens who would become burdensome to American taxpayers because of illness.  That’s great, Joe.  Yet another chink in the Cloward & Piven chain of crumbling the United States.
  80. 2021 Friday O: Business News– Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district, says it’s ‘appalling’ that the $5 million ransom was paid to Darkside, the company that devastated the Colonial Pipeline.  Speaking of Darkside, they are now said to be targeting Japan’s Toshiba.   Joe Biden, however, won’t admit to the $4-5 million ransom being paid to the Russian government-approved hackers.  (Note- when Russia was said to be paying bounties for the deaths of Americans, they wanted President Trump to go to war with the Russkies.  Seems like Joe should be dropping nukes atop Moscow right now).  Elsewhere, even with the Colonial pipeline up and running, the gas crunch is affecting Washington, D.C.  Go figure.
  81. 2021 Friday P: Miscellaneous News I– California’s Vandenberg Air Force Base will be renamed Space Force Base.  Elsewhere, Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt, GOP, has been booted from the Tulsa Race Riot Panel over him being insensitive to the plight of people of color by signing a bill banning Critical Race Theory.  Next, Columbus, Ohio, has settled on a payment of $10 million to the family of Andre Hill whom a law enforcement officer shot dead last year.  Like the settlement for the family of George Floyd prior to the trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin so, too, does this settlement come ahead of the trial of now-fired Police Officer Adam Coy who also is facing a murder charge.  Officer Coy won’t receive a fair trial either.
  82. 2021 Friday Q: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Poor Chrissy Teigen just got dumped by Target who canceled her line of cookware once information came to light that she is a cyberbully.  Wow.  Didn’t see that one coming.   In other WOKE news, Norman Public Schools in Oklahoma paid $22,750 to equity trainers to indoctrinate their students.  What a load of crap.  Let’s return to the DREAM of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.- he had us on the right track and now, WOKE is everything.  Sad.   Speaking of WOKE, New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov’ still cannot cop to his sexual harassment claims by putting the onus on the women he was feeling up.  What a guy.
  83. 2021 Friday R: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the numbers for the Mega-Millions Draw #1659 with a $480 million jackpot on the line: 03, 18, 41, 44, 68, and Mega 03.  Out of 172,936 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had FIVE numbers for a prize of $894,156.  The winning ticket was sold at King’s Beverage Company in South Lake Tahoe, CA 96150.
  84. 2022 Saturday: Folks, stick around and uncover the truth along with us…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Murray Wilson- the Beach Boys’ manager and father of three of them- was an abusive POS and by this time had damaged son, Brian’s eardrum following several slaps upside the head; yet Brian still cranked out the tunes.  “All Summer Long” came out on July 13, 1964, and continued the group’s meteoric rise to heights heretofore unseen in American music.  The band featured Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals and saxophones), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), and Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals).  The tunes on this one are ones we cherish to this day such as “I Get Around,” “All Summer Long,” “Hushabye,” “Little Honda,” “Wendy,” and “Don’t Back Down.”  One gets a varied selection of surfin’ tunes, hot rod tunes, and hot chicks on the beach tunes which are as delightful now as they were more than half a century ago.  We hope you will seek this one out and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure.  We think you will be extremely happy you did.  Enjoy.

  72. 2014 Tuesday: Researchers discover Christopher Columbus’ flagship, the Santa Maria, off the coast of Haiti.  Elsewhere, Vietnamese citizens take to the streets in protest over the Chi-Coms decision to slap an oil rig in Vietnamese waters.  Tens of thousands of Vietnamese show up outside factories and businesses with Chinese names to show their displeasure with the bullies in Beijing.  Of course, this will have no effect on the Red Dragon…
  73. 2015 Wednesday: The Vatican indicates that it is going to enter into an agreement to recognize Palestine as a separate nation.  Meanwhile, chalk one up for the home team- the government of Iraq that a successful airstrike in the northern part of the country has delivered ISIS second in command Abdul Rahman Mustafa Mohammed to Allah far sooner than the POS planned on meeting him.  Awesome.  Hopefully, Allah will consign your worthless ass to hell.
  74. 2016 Friday: Vladimir Putin- dictator of Russia- threatens to neutralize a new U.S. ballistic missile system being deployed throughout Europe to combat the Russians should they choose to strike NATO.   Elsewhere, the U.S. Departments of Education and Justice inform ALL U.S. school districts to allow trannys to use the bathrooms with which they claim to identify.  Chalk up another win for the HATE AMERICA CROWD.
  75. 2017 Saturday: According to On This Day, a 22-year-old blogger working in the United Kingdom accidentally halts the spread of a global ransomware cyberattack by finding the so-called ‘kill switch.’  Congratulations.  Elsewhere, at Gwadar Port in Baluchistan, Pakistan, gunmen swoop down on a group of construction workers, lighting them up with automatic weapons fire.  The attack claims the lives of at least 10 workers and wounds numerous others.

  79. 2020 Wednesday: Here are the latest COVID-19 statistics for the day: around the globe, we have 4,347,015 confirmed cases, 297,197 confirmed deaths, and 1,548,547 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 1,421,061 confirmed cases, 84,763 confirmed deaths, and 243,517 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which, we have participating chef-authors, California has 71,141 confirmed cases, 2,934 confirmed deaths, and once again, 0 number of confirmed recoveries because Gov. Gavin Newsom won’t share them.  Next, Hawaii has 638 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 563 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, Washington state has 17,512 confirmed cases, 975 confirmed deaths, and 0 number of confirmed recoveries because it’s all POLITICAL.  Thank you, communist China, thank you, Democratic Party, beware of communist China-Democratic Party collusion.  Meanwhile, the judge in the Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn case- Judge Emmet Sullivan- refuses to let the case go even after the U.S. Department of Justice said it’s not going to prosecute this case.  This is what is wrong in the United States, we have dictatorial judges who need to be impeached and removed from office.  Perhaps when the GOP controls both houses of Congress in January 2021?

  81. 2021 Thursday A: Note: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, there have been 282,522 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 180,087 deaths.

  84. 2021 Thursday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,021.45, UP 433.79 points (+1.29%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,124.99, UP 93.31 points (+0.72%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,112.50, UP 49.46 points (+1.22%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $63.86 per barrel, +0.04 (+0.06%).  The price of GOLD is $1,825.40 per troy oz., +1.50 (+0.08%) while the price of SILVER is $27.15 per troy ounce, +0.09 (+0.32%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,212.50 per troy oz, +6.00 (+0.50%) while the price of COPPER is $4.68 per pound, -0.01 (-0.31%).[xiii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,867.35 per troy oz, +0.22 (+0.01%).[xiv] The price of RHODIUM is $28,400.00 per troy oz., +400.00 (+1.43%).[xv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000020.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.45 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.95.     In Sudanese Pound, one greenback equals 400.10 and in Suriname Dollar, a buck equals 14.15 and in Swazi Lilangeni, one dollar equals 14.12 of theirs.[xvi]

  86. 2021 Thursday F: Foreign News / Overseas News– After Hamas has launched more than 1,500 rockets into civilian areas within Israel since Monday, it would appear that Israeli ground and air assets are crossing the border into the hellhole known as Gaza.  Moses Scharbug III, aka Mo- who now lives in Israel- says that it is a clash between civilization and darkness, a clash between light and barbarism and that the Israelis must crush these animalistic scum with every weapon possessed in their arsenal.  We all tend to agree.  Send these cockroaches howling into 1,000 years of darkness, naked and devastated.  The Israeli ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer says that ‘Hamas must be taught a lesson that it cannot murder Israelis with impunity.’  Amen.  We say, ‘use neutron bombs and eliminate these rats.’   
  87. 2021 Thursday G: Political News I– While Israel fights for its very survival, Anti-Semitic scum such as Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DS-MN 5th congressional district, and Rep. Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, DS-MI 13th congressional district, are more or less calling for her destruction by not providing her support in her hour of need.  As Mo says, ‘NO matter what the Democratic-Socialists say, God gave the land encompassed by Israel to Moses more than 2,000 years ago.  It was the homeland of the Jews and the only reason it was not because first the Romans and then the Muslims drove them off the land.  If one wants to talk about the ‘right of return,’ Jews have the first and ONLY right of return.’  Could not say it better ourselves.   Regarding these two Islamist congresswomen, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, confronted the head of the ‘suicide squad,’ Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez aka AOC aka Baby Evita aka Sandy Cortez (birth name), DS-NY 14th congressional district, and called her out over her support for ‘terrorists.’  
  88. 2021 Thursday H: Business News– The Biden Regime is doing a lot of chest-thumping over the fact that last week ONLY 473,000 new jobless claims were filed.  What they neglect to say is that there are 8,000,000 unfilled in jobs in the U.S., jobs that are NOT being filled because of the Biden’s regime edict that the unemployed receive MORE money sitting at home in their skivvies than they would if they were on the job.  (Note- we believe the Biden regime is doing this so as to whine in a few weeks that ‘to fill these empty jobs, illegal aliens will have to do the work Americans are unwilling to do.’  We’ve heard this tune before.
  89. 2021 Thursday I: Joe Biden Regime News I– Joe Biden’s $86 billion pension bailout plan is set to boost corporate bonds.  In related news, a House panel is backing a bill that will spend $8 billion to shift the United States Postal Service from gas-fueled vehicles to electric vehicles.  (Note- fascinating how coincidental the shutdown of the Colonial Pipeline running through 17 states and now the Dems are pushing for more electric vehicles than ever.  You realize that once everyone has EVs, they will be restricted to a certain radius because of charging station availability, the length of the charge, as well as the fact that electric cars are far more expensive, batteries harder to dispose of due to their toxicity, and the eventual pushing of everyone out of electric vehicles to public transit in much the same way we have Ubers).[xx]   
  90. 2021 Thursday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– As the Arizona state senate continues its investigation into the fraudulent 2020 Elections, investigators announce that the Maricopa County election officials WIPED the voting machines’ memories.  Here again is yet another reason as to why millions of Americans continue to believe that what happened in the days following November 03 were not legit.  And still, the Democrats continue crying and sniveling that anyone questioning the results of the 2020 Election is somehow a backwoods goober.  (Note- the evidence continues piling up by the day that November 03, 2020, was the worst example of elections fraud in the history of our great nation).
  91. 2021 Thursday K: Miscellaneous News I– Democrats are seeking a ban on military weapons making their way into the hands of local police departments.   Next, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov has hired criminal defense attorneys without saying if HE is paying for them or the Empire State will.  (Note- our bet is on the taxpayers of New York).  Speaking of worthless governors, Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom, DS-CA, says he will ‘END the mask mandate on June 15.’  (Note- too late, there ‘Smiler;’ no matter what you do, WE are recalling you).  Elsewhere, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, is trying to fight off potential challengers as she seeks to become the No. 3 in the GOP House leadership.  (Note- most of us would like to seen Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, or Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district, get the job).
  92. 2022 Friday: You know the drill…

  62. 2021 Tuesday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden became President on January 20, 2021, there have been 280,974 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 181,635 deaths.      
  63. 2021 Tuesday 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: 3,761,724 confirmed cases, 62,357 confirmed deaths, and 2,005,443 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,275,365 confirmed cases, 35,849 confirmed deaths, and 1,859,688 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 33,329 confirmed cases, 488 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 418,071 confirmed cases, 5,642 confirmed deaths, and 203,349 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., American Samoa, yet another place  the Democrats will want to transform into a state after D.C., Puerto Rico, Guam, Virgin Islands, and the Northern Marianas Islands become states: they have 4 confirmed cases, 0 confirmed deaths, and 1 confirmed recoveries.[xiii]   
  64. 2021 Tuesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,000 confirmed cases, 6,378 confirmed deaths, and 831,738 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Kenya, the birthplace of the United States’ 44th ‘president’ Barack Hussein Obama: 163,976 cases of the virus, 2,928 confirmed deaths and 113,057 confirmed recoveries.[xiv]

In Solomon Islands Dollar, one greenback equals 7.9957 and in Somali Schilling, a buck equals 575.00 and in South African Rand, one dollar equals 13.99 of theirs.[xviii]      The reason as to WHY Wall Street had such a down cycle today is due to fears of oncoming rampant inflation thanks to the inabilities of the Biden regime to continue the Trump economic miracle.  The Bidenistas will bring about a new Great Depression- mark our words.  Businesses are raising prices at the highest rates since the 1980s.   In other news, cryptocurrencies value is higher than that of the U.S. dollar.
  66. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.107 per gallon, $2.877 in Florida, $3.833 in Hawaii, and $3.518 in Washington state.[xix]    Let’s look at one other location- Rhode Island: $2.894.  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- Bolivia: $2.045 per U.S. Gallon.[xx]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,274,850,063,528 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  67. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden Regime News I– As the Untermensch in Gaza Strip continue attacking Israel, enfeebled old Joe Biden finds himself under assault from both the right and left.  The right wants Israel supported and defended while the left wants to see Israel destroyed.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day stands with Israel to a member.  We say use the neutron bomb on the human scum inhabiting the Gaza Strip and then reclaim the land for Israel.  Meanwhile, economist Stephen Moore says that ‘Joe Biden’s unemployment benefits are keeping Americans out of the workforce.’  Amen.  Regarding the abandonment of Israel by the fraudulent Biden regime, President Donald J. Trump says that ‘Biden’s weakness is causing the massive surge in violence across the Middle East.’  Amen to that, too.   
  68. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden Regime News II– In other fascinating news, WOKE leftists are jumping on Andrew Yang for announcing his support for Israel.  And the left eats its own.   Elsewhere, Joe Biden is sending out ‘signed letters’ to recipients of COVID-19 relief checks.  Big whoop.  Stick the letters where the sun don’t shine Mr. (Bogus) President.   Finally, new rules coming out of the Biden regime would force doctors and other medical professionals to enable those suffering from gender dysphoria to undergo whatever treatments and irreversible processes they demand.  (Note- while I hate to say this, I am beginning to think that Joe Biden could very well be the Antichrist- Olaf).
  69. 2021 Tuesday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– Chile- a nation with a high rate of vaccination against the Chi-Vi is currently experiencing a tidal wave of new Bat Fu Yuk cases thanks to the Chi-Coms.   Meanwhile, a key officer at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services says that ‘annual booster shots may be required against the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, aka the China Virus, aka the Wuhan Virus, aka the ‘VID.  No thank you, we are not getting the vaccinations no matter what.  Elsewhere, analysis by the New York Times shows that the extremely overcautious Centers for Disease Control are sowing mass confusion over the danger of the Wuhan Flu.   Finally, Missouri and Tennessee are joining other states slashing Chi-Vi relief payments to their citizens.  It’s time for these people to return to work.  Now.
  70. 2021 Tuesday I: Foreign News / Overseas News– In Russia, at least seven are dead in a school shooting in that country.  The police have apprehended the suspect.   Next, the Siberian doctor who treated Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny has mysteriously disappeared.   Next, left-wing lawmakers in the U.S. (you know the scum) are screeching about ‘Israel’s brutality’ in defending itself from the 130 or so rockets fired into Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.  You know our feelings on the topic.  Elsewhere, Rep. Rob Wittman, R-VA 1st congressional district, says that Iran is trying to cause problems in the Straits of Hormuz by swamping U.S. Navy and Coast Guard assets with swift boats.’  We say, ‘sink these riffraff scumbags.’
  71. 2021 Tuesday J: Political News I– The Vatican warns U.S. bishops NOT to deny drooling old Joe Biden communion.  (Note- we know where Pope Francis stands which is why many Catholics are abandoning the church.  The man’s a Marxist and one cannot serve Marx and God simultaneously.  Olaf).   Next, the new White House deputy director for political strategy and outreach- Natalie Montelongo- says, ‘ICE does not have to exist.’  Next, a new poll says that almost two-thirds of Americans believe social media platforms are ripping our country asunder.   Elsewhere, Caitlyn Jenner, running for the governor’s job in California chose to golf on Election Day rather than to cast a vote for President Donald J. Trump.  Hence why we like John Cox.
  72. 2021 Tuesday K: Political News II– Rep. Steve Scalise, R-LA 1st congressional district, and other members of the GOP are calling for a new probe into the shootings that occurred at the baseball field a few years back when an enraged Bernie Sanders supporter shot several people and either seriously wounded or killed them before being shot and killed by Capitol Hill Police officers.  After all, a week or two ago, FBI Director Chris Wray announced the verdict of ‘suicide by cop.’  Wow.
  73. 2021 Tuesday L: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– In Georgia, prosecutors are going to seek the death penalty against the sex-addicted POS who shot up a pair of Asian massage (brothel) parlors killing eight people, six of whom were Asian women whom the left then leapt atop as a symbol of anti-Asian hate ginned up by the China Virus.   Good.  Convict and execute that punk.  Next, in related legal news, the reason for the divorce between Bill and Melinda Gates is because back in 2019, Melinda was upset that hubby Bill was too close to Jeffrey Epstein, the pervert and pedophile.  We’d throw the guy out, too.  Elsewhere, in other legal news, New York state is celebrating a big victory as a court in the Empire State has thrown out the bankruptcy filings by the National Rifle Association.  Finally, trainer Bob Baffert of the Kentucky Derby winner, Medina Spirit, claims that an ointment he used on the horse may have caused its ‘positive’ for doping.  The investigation continues.
  74. 2021 Tuesday M: Miscellaneous News I– Now that Great Britain is going to require photo IDs to vote, President Donald J. Trump points out the obvious that so, too, should the United States.  Of course, to leftists, photo IDs are RACIST.  Speaking of the commander-in-chief, he is supporting Glenn Youngkin, the GOP candidate for Virginia governor, in the upcoming election.   Another stalwart candidate in upstate New York- Sheriff Mike Carpinelli- is putting his hat into the ring to replace that angry moron, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov.  We hope he can beat that POS.   Elsewhere, the ex-Capitol Hill Police Chief Steven Sund defended his performance on January 06, 2021, the day of the largest FALSE FLAG POLITICAL OPERATION IN THE HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES and said he feared the ‘appearance of a coup d’ êtat.’   Finally, Wisconsin is considering a law making it mandatory to play the National Anthem in every public venue.
  75. 2021 Tuesday N: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been the BORDER CZAR now for 49 days and has yet to take her butt down to the southern border.  What the hell is up with that?
  76. 2021 Tuesday O: Environmental News I– Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom, DS-CA, has extended the drought declaration to 41 counties.  It is sad that the state continues allowing fresh water to flow out to the Pacific Ocean rather than confining it behind the walls of new dams.   Meanwhile, the feds have approved the building of the first offshore wind farms.  Elsewhere, in a blow to the Green Meanies, a new report says that temperatures so far in 2021 are far lower than they have been in recent years.  Not good for idiots such as the ‘Squad’ and their push for the Green New Deal.  A win for us.
  77. 2021 Tuesday P: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Stick around for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1658 with a $402 million jackpot on the line.  Here are the numbers: 07, 08, 20, 36, 39 and Mega 22.  Out of 163,472 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $10,622 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys’ third album, “Surfer Girl,” released on September 16, 1963, was their greatest to date yet spawning numerous hits.  The band’s lineup was the same- Brian Wilson (bass, piano, and vocals), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Carl Wilson (lead guitar and vocals), Mike Love (vocals), and David Marks (rhythm guitar and vocals)- but Marks would be leaving soon.  The group knocked out a load of hits on this record- the title track to be sure but also “Catch a Wave,” “Little Deuce Coupe,” “In My Room,” and “Hawaii.”  Brian Wilson was having to write at a much more furious pace what with the emphasis being on hits.  Father Murray Wilson, the group’s manager, kept them on a tight schedule of writing, recording, and performing, raking in as much money as was humanly possible and then some.  Great music to be sure, music we hope you will check out and enjoy because the Beach Boys are one of the all-time great American groups to be sure.

130. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, MAY 10, 2022

1943 Monday: The coming late spring-early summer offensive in the Soviet Union is getting in motion. Operation Citadel- the attack on the Kursk Salient in the Ukraine- has been given the go-ahead by Hitler himself even though German intelligence assets have told the Fuhrer that the Soviets have established a massive defense in depth. This will be the greatest clash of armor and tactical aircraft the world has ever seen.

  62. 2008 Saturday: Senator Barack Hussein Obama, D-IL, takes the lead in the superdelegate count- a very peculiar thing the Democrats have to steal nominations in presidential elections for their chosen candidate.  The first-term Illinois senator is smoking Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-NY.

  64. 2010 Monday: Solicitor General Elena Kagan is the youngest nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court and the third woman.  Elsewhere, jihadists carry out a wave of suicide attacks across Iraq, blowing up at least 102 unsuspecting souls and injuring more than 200.  Ah, the ‘religion of peace.’

  68. 2014 Saturday: According to Brainy History, Brazilian police distribute pamphlets to World Cup visitors with instructions on how to behave in the event of a robbery; law enforcement means the ‘advice’ to protect victims from injury or death during crime.

  71. 2017 Wednesday: To the delight of environmentalists everywhere, the U.S. Geological Service releases a study claiming that some glaciers in Montana have receded by 85-percent over the past half-century.  No wonder imbeciles such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez believe the world is coming to an end soon.  Sadly, the Sun is the sole driver of all climatic changes throughout the entire Solar System.  Conversation and fighting pollution is indeed important but the Earth- and other planets- have all gone through periods of climate change throughout the history of said Solar system.  Meanwhile, to the ‘horror’ of Democrats, President Donald J. Trump shares classified intelligence regarding an ISIS attack coming soon against Russia with Russian Ambassador Sergey Ivanovich Kislyak and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in the Oval Office.  (Hence, Trump-Russia ‘collusion’).
  72. 2018 Thursday: Following Iran firing missiles into Israel’s Golan Heights from Syria, the IDF lights up Iranian targets in Syria with 70 missiles, blowing up numerous installations and other military infrastructure.  Of course, Iran claims Israel started the fight.
  73. 2019 Friday: The United States raises tariffs on $250 billion of Chinese imports, a jump of 25-percent, following the collapse of trade talks between the United States and the communist nation.  Meanwhile, Uber becomes a publicly traded company on the New York Stock Exchange on this date.

  76. 2021 Monday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden became President on January 20, 2021, there have been 280,304 chi-vi deaths in the United States- President Biden, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, the 46th president is shy 182,305 deaths.      
  77. 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: 3,759,618 confirmed cases, 62,314 confirmed deaths, and 2,003,503 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,272,102 confirmed cases, 35,785 confirmed deaths, and 1,853,131 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 33,267 confirmed cases, 488 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 416,317 confirmed cases, 5,626 confirmed deaths, and 202,588 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Northern Marianas Islands, yet another place  the Democrats will want to transform into a state after D.C., Puerto Rico, Guam, and Virgin Islands become states: they have 170 confirmed cases, 2 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.[x]   
  78. 2021 Monday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 838,957 confirmed cases, 6,378 confirmed deaths, and 831,620 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Nigeria, a place overrun with far too many ‘princes’ all-in need of U.S. senior citizens’ life savings: 165,419 cases of the virus, 2,065 confirmed deaths and 156,297 confirmed recoveries.[xi]     
  79. 2021 Monday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,742.82, DOWN 34.92 points (-0.10%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,401.86, DOWN 350.38 points (-2.55%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,188.43, DOWN 44.17 points (-1.04%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $64.85 per barrel, -0.07 (-0.011%).  The price of GOLD is $1,835.50 per troy oz., -2.10 (-0.11%) while the price of SILVER is $27.37 per troy ounce, -0.12 (-0.44%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,249.50 per troy oz, -16.00 (-1.26%) while the price of COPPER is $4.70 per pound, -0.02 (-0.45%).[xii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,952.91 per troy oz, +26.40 (+0.90%).[xiii] The price of RHODIUM is $28,900.00 per troy oz., -400.00 (-1.37%).[xiv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.42 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.92.     In Seychellois Rupee, one greenback equals 15.18 and in Sierran Leonean Leone, a buck equals 10,154.00 and in Singapore Dollar, one dollar equals 1.33 of theirs.[xv]       
  80. 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- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.103 per gallon, $2.876 in Florida, $3.810 in Hawaii, and $3.514 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Pennsylvania: $3.088.  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- Sudan: $2.026 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,270,989,160,341 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  81. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Under President Biden’s lack of attention, the border continues being overrun by illegal aliens.  ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris is in her 48th day as the so-called ‘Border Czar’ and has yet to tour the region.   Meanwhile, reporters from various news agencies continue reporting on the nonstop flow of illegal aliens pouring into the country.  One reporter on Fox News Channel witnessed a group of 40 or more Venezuelans walking across the Rio Grande this morning.  Hence why we say the river should be seeded with alligator pups.  Why aren’t local authorities running miles of razor wire along the border under their authority?  Minefields, folks, minefields.
  82. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden Regime News I– Today, we learned that after four months ‘on the job,’ Joe Biden has left dozens of ambassadorships unfilled.  What’s up with that?  Next, President Biden restores ‘tranny health protections’ reversing yet another President Donald J. Trump policy.  In other questionable news, a new AP-NORC Poll says that President Biden’s ‘approval ratings’ are buoyed by his pandemic response.’  WTF?  The commander-in-chief has done flipping nothing to improve the lives of the American people.  Next, supposedly Joe Biden is meeting with GOP leaders at the pivotal point in his ‘deal-making.’  What deal-making?   Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, RINO-KY, says, ‘the GOP is willing to agree to $800 billion on infrastructure but not the $1.3 trillion’ demanded by Joe Biden’s handlers.
  83. 2021 Monday H: Chi-Com News I– New reports are surfacing that suggest the Chi-Coms planned to weaponize bat viruses such as COVID-19 back in 2015 to further their Chi-Com BS agenda.  Screw them.  Next, author Gordon Chang says that the Chi-Coms ‘committed mass murder of Americans using COVID-19 as their weapon.’  In other Chi-Com news, the communists are demanding- we repeat- DEMANDING- the U.N. cancel a hearing on Uighur Muslims.  (Note- the communists don’t want anyone to know about their Nazi-like efforts to liquidate the Uighur Muslims and other religious and ethnic minorities so the Han Chinamen can rule supreme.  F**k them).
  84. 2021 Monday I: Foreign News / Overseas News– Overnight in Israel, 80 people have been injured fighting Israeli authorities.  It’s Muslim celebration time and when they celebrate, they attack Israeli military, law enforcement, and even the citizens.  For the first time in history, Hamas has fired rockets, we repeat- ROCKETS- into Jerusalem, a place the morons claim is SACRED to them.  The Knesset had to evacuate, so great was the danger.  (Note- folks, this is why God gave the world the neutron bomb- like Hamas and the rest of the trash up NOW). Ramadan begins in two days and of course, the Palestinians are going to run amok.  Elsewhere, U.S. Coast Guard assets working in the Straits of Hormuz were forced to fire warning shots at pesky Iranian swift boats trying to harass U.S. assets.  Sink them.  
  85. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– The AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says, ‘there’s no doubt that the United States UNDERCOUNTED COVID-19 deaths.’  He also believes we must continue wearing masks into 2022.   Elsewhere in the world, once the COVID-19 curfews were lifted, people are now hosting and enjoying LARGE PARTIES.   Meanwhile, a new TIPP Poll says that the number of Americans who won’t take the vaccine has now risen to 26-percent.   Next, the FDA approves Pfizer-BioNTech’s Chi-Vi vaccine for use with 12-15-year-olds. In other Chi-Vi news, Wyoming joins the ranks of states to BAN COVID-19 ‘vaccine passports.’  Awesome.  Finally, many Catholic schools are having trouble in the times of COVID-19 keeping their doors open for students.
  86. 2021 Monday K: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– The Arizona 2020 Election Audit is off to a bad start as they cannot get their hands on the routers, the passwords, and other valuable information and tools so they can uncover the truth about the election many believe was STOLEN.  IF the Democrats have NOTHING to hide- then hand the requested stuff over to the investigators.   Meanwhile, Michigan is filing a lawsuit pleading evidence shows that votes in that state for President Donald J. Trump were flipped over to drooling old Joe “I’m a Racist” Biden.  Godspeed. 
  87. 2021 Monday L: Business News– Thanks to the stupidity of the Joe Biden regime, restaurants across the United States- including ours- are suffering due to a hiring crisis.  People make more money to sit at home on their asses than they do at work.  However, senile old Joe Biden did say that ‘if the unemployed don’t take jobs offered to them, they will lose their benefits.’  How does that work, Joe?  Employers aren’t going to people’s homes begging them to go to work.  What crap.  Speaking of the ‘generous unemployment benefits’ (until they run out and the country goes broke), Governor Spencer J. Cox, R-UT, says that the ‘added benefits are a disincentive.’  Amen.   Elsewhere, a California man was arrested for his $5 million PPP scam.  The dimwit spent the money on expensive sports cars.  The dumb ass is going to prison.  SOB.
  88. 2021 Monday M: National Security News– The Colonial oil pipeline shutdown enters its fourth day.  The 1,500-mile-long pipeline runs through 17 states.  Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district put out a tweet in which she said- more or less- that ’17 U.S. national security and intelligence agencies said there was NO interference in the 2020 Elections yet NONE of them had a clue that a pipeline running through 17 states was in danger of being hacked.’[xix]  Elsewhere, new information continues to arise showing that Hunter Biden may have had a close relationship with a Chi-Com female agent in much the same way as the slow-witted so-called ‘farter-in-chief’ Rep. Eric Swalwell, DS-CA 15th congressional district, had with Christine Fang, aka Fang-Fang, an operative of the Ministry of State Security, the MSS, an organization comparable to the KGB.  This woman sent Hunter Biden opposition research for his father’s 2020 presidential run.  Hmmm…
  89. 2021 Monday N: Political News I– Sadly, we learnt today just how compromised U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr was- he fought to keep flawed FBI Director Christopher Wray in his position.  Wow.  Next, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden’s TAX LIE has been exposed by rising inflation.  Speaking of Leader McCarthy, he backs Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, over GOP House Conference Chair Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, someone who can’t move on from January 06, 2021, and who won’t STFU about it.  She must GO.   Speaking of ‘Liz Cheney,’ U.S. Army Colonel Denton Knapp, Retired, is running for the windbag’s seat in 2022.  Elsewhere, Rep. James “Influence” Clyburn, D-SC 6th congressional district, says he is ‘willing to consider police reform without ending qualified immunity for law enforcement officers.’  Hmmm.  We shall see.
  90. 2021 Monday O: Political News II– President Donald J. Trump is endorsing Lt. Governor Dan Patrick, R-TX, for re-election.  Next, after the world learned that Kentucky Derby winner Medina Spirit ‘was doped,’ the 45th president pointed out that crap such as this is emblematic of the way the United States is going.  We agree.  Meanwhile, Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, says that ‘Joe Biden bears full responsibility for the LOW JOBS report of last week.’
  91. 2021 Monday P: Social Media News And Big Tech News– Numerous state attorney generals are seeking to stop Instagram’s ‘children’s accounts’ where the social media app can monitor and influence children’s minds.  We concur.  Later today, the FBI has confirmed that Darkside did indeed hack the Colonial pipeline.
  92. 2021 Monday Q: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Rep. Jerry Carl, R-AL 1st congressional district, told Newsmax that ‘the United States is distracted by WOKE.’  Amen.  Next, NBC is dropping the Golden Globes in 2022 over a diversity snafu. 
  93. 2021 Monday R: Miscellaneous News I– Quarterback Tim Tebow has signed a one-year deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars.  Soon, we will hear sobbing and wailing from fans of communist Colin “The Communist” Kaepernick whom NO ONE still will employ.  Boohoo.   Next, the IOC president called off a trip to Tokyo due to the ‘VID outbreak that just won’t go away there.   Meanwhile, Tucker Carlson broke the news of the DEEP TIES between the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci and his U.S. taxpayer funding of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the birthplace of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  The question he raises is WHY the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci is not the subject of a criminal investigation or why he isn’t sitting in the hot seat before Congress getting his balls grilled off by concerned representatives and senators?  Damned good question.  The fact that the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci’s department helped FUND this debacle means he should be doing challenging time in the slammer NOW.  Is this what the Democrats are willing to do to destroy a highly popular president such as Donald J. Trump?  Shocking.
  94. 2021 Monday S: Whacked-Out News Of The Day– Nonagenarian House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi has been blasted over her inability to distinguish one black baseball player from another.   It has come to light that when the aging speaker afflicted with dementia sent out birthday greetings to famed San Francisco Giants slugger, Willie Mays, for his 90th birthday (May 06, 1931),  she put out a picture of her and another dingbat with Giants player Willie McCovey who died on October 31, 2018.  When a big uproar descended upon her aging back, she had the temerity to blame a staffer for her failure to determine one black baseball legend from another.  Ain’t that how it always goes?  (Note- Nance, you truly should consider retirement and we mean YESTERDAY, not today).
  95. 2022 Tuesday: You know the drill…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The sophomore effort by the Beach Boys- “Surfin’ USA”- came out on March 25, 1963, and featured the same lineup of Brian Wilson (bass, piano, and vocals), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Carl Wilson (lead guitar and vocals), Mike Love (vocals), and David Marks (rhythm guitar and vocals).  This album continued the new group’s rise to the top via tunes such as the title track, “Farmer’s Daughter,” and “Shut Down.”  The Beach Boys were not content to ride the wave with just one genre of music, i.e., surf music, as numerous copycats were jumping aboard the surf train.  They also were delving into their love of hot rods, hot chicks, and wild times in So-Cal.  Hawthorne, California, would never be the same nor would the world.  We hope you will seek this one out and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

[xix] Here is what WE think: like the Deepwater Horizon oil platform in the Gulf of Mexico blew up back in 2010, at the time many of us had our suspicions that the Obama-Biden administration had some foreknowledge of that event and used to shut down offshore oil drilling for years.  They shut down drilling off our coasts but allowed the rigs to relocate off the coast of Brazil to drill for oil down there.  Likewise, we think the Russian-backed Darkside hacking group shut this extremely important pipeline so as (1) to cut the amount of oil in the country; (2) to drive up the costs of oil and oil-based products; and (3) to help hasten the bullshit Green New Deal through to being.  Mark our words- Olaf Bologolo.

  59. 2014 Friday: For the first time since annexing the Crimea, Russian President Vladimir Putin visits the region on the holiday commemorating the Soviet victory over Nazi Germany.  Who will stop this murderous POS?  Meanwhile, the South Korean military announces that three drones that penetrated its airspace came from North Korea.

Trump abruptly fired worthless FBI Director James Comey, ousting the nation’s top law enforcement official in the midst of an FBI investigation into whether Trump’s campaign had ties to Russia’s meddling in the election that sent him to the White House.  Two years later, it appears that Comey was involved in a scheme the Democrats and the Deep State engineered first to prevent the election of Trump and then to remove him via a coup.  We are awaiting Comey to be charged along with James Clapper, John Brennan, Sally Yates, Peter Strzok and his girlfriend Lisa Page, and numerous other scumbags involved in this ever-evolving crime.  Meanwhile, Governor Ahok of Jakarta, a Christian, is given a two-year sentence for ‘blasphemy’ seeing as how Indonesia is a predominantly Muslim nation.
  63. 2018 Wednesday: According to On This Day, the Supreme Court of India has some major criticism for the government department responsible for archaeological preservation because they did little to nothing to prevent the discoloration of the iconic Taj Mahal- the only ‘wonder’ left of the ‘Seven Wonders of the World’- as well as the build-up of green slime in the historic site.  Meanwhile, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and the Iranian people go ballistic after President Trump declares the U.S. is pulling out of the multinational nuclear deal signed during the Obama administration.  Screw ‘em!
  64. 2019 Thursday: Off the coast of Tunisia, a boatload of migrants fleeing Libya capsizes, drowning at least 65 of the passengers, according to the United Nations.  The best way to avoid mishaps such as this is migrants: stay where you are.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Navy seizes a North Korean freighter in the East China Sea, loaded with coal for Indonesia which is against the sanctions imposed upon the former for its nuclear programs and weapons tests.  
  65. 2020 Saturday: Around the world, the “Chinese Curse,” aka COVID-19, aka the “Chinese Virus,” aka the Wuhan Virus Crisis, aka the Wuhan Flu, aka the Kung Flu, continues claiming lives and destroying economies and yet, communist China protests anyone calling it the “Chinese Virus,” which it is so Beijing, STFU.  Confirmed cases around the world stand at 4,004,224, confirmed deaths stand at 277,860, and confirmed recoveries at 1,348,288.  In the United States, confirmed cases are 1,138,643, confirmed deaths are 79,373, and confirmed recoveries are 189,912 (which is an incomplete number as the liberal states tend to keep this statistic close to their vests so they can continue this unconstitutional lockdown order a la Michigan and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.   California acknowledges 64,532 confirmed cases and confirmed deaths at 2,630 BUT NO NUMBER of confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, Hawaii claims 629 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 548 confirmed recoveries.  Up in Washington state where one of our colleagues lives, works, and writes, the number of confirmed cases is 16,388 with confirmed deaths at 905.  Sadly, Gov. Jay Inslee won’t release the numbers of confirmed recoveries.   Moving on to communist China, Beijing continues to wail they have 88,423 (same number) confirmed cases what with 4,633 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  My, my, my, why continue to lie, People’s Republic of China?  
  66. 2020 Saturday A: In Tullahoma, Oklahoma, famed rock-and-roller, Little Richard, died at age 87.  Little Richard[vi] was famous for so many songs but “Lucille,” “Tutti-Frutti,” and “Good Golly, Miss Molly” are the ones that leap out.  Check him out.

Currently, Joe is shy 182,613 deaths.

  73. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– The Biden regime has hired 17 new immigration judges to staff the overflowing immigration courts.  These very same judges were offered the same roles under the Donald J.

  74. 2021 Sunday G: Political News I– Rep. Andy Biggs, 5th congressional district, says that new evidence shows the FBI has been lying to Congress.   We’ve known that for a long time.  Next, Senator Ben Sasse, RINO-NE, is going to introduce legislation that will permit the repurposing of unemployment benefits into hiring bonuses to get everyone to return to work instead of sitting at home and being good little socialists, drawing benefits.   Next, the NCAA is in discussions with the Department of Justice (WHY?) over the new plan of allowing student athletes to make money from their names, likenesses, and apparel.  They should have been able to have done this for a long time.
  75. 2021 Sunday H: Political News II– The U.S. Department of Justice is preparing to make a ruling as to whether criminals sent home to house arrest during the Chi-Com pandemic will have to return to prison or not.  Spoiler alert- YOU KNOW the DOJ will cut them all loose.  Just saying.   In other news, NASA is blasting the Chi-Coms over their unprofessional behavior in being unable to control the re-entry of their 22-ton Long March rocket that crashed just west of the Maldives into the Indian Ocean early this morning.  The flipping Chi-Coms.  Like the Soviets, communist simply do not give a flying f**k about the lives and property of other human beings.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys are one of those American success stories, one that NO one at the time had any idea as how far it would go.  Dennis Wilson loved surfing and brought that love of riding the waves home with him.  Brother Brian- inspired by his brother started writing tunes.  A talented, musical family, Brian played bass, piano, and sang while older brother Dennis played drums and could sing.  Youngest brother Carl could play guitar, and their sad started seeing money signs although he was abusive as hell and put them down every opportunity he had.  Mike Love joined his cousins on vocals while neighbor David Marks joined on rhythm guitar and vocals.  Brian could hear all the harmonies in his head and soon the group began to form and chose the name, ‘the Beach Boys.’  Their first album, “Surfin’ Safari” came out on October 01, 1962, and it set the world on fire.  One of the oldest American rock groups, the Beach Boys touched off the California sun and surf craze.  The songs were pretty simple but hey, it was the early 1960s, the Vietnam War was not yet in motion, anything was possible and so it was.  Thus, we have some classic tunes on this album, “Surfin’ Safari,” “409,” and “Surfin’.”  Great music if there ever was which set the world ablaze and put the members of the band on one of the all-time crazy roller-coaster rides.  We hope you will seek this album out and consider adding it to your growing collection.  You will be glad you did.

[vi] Not sure as to when we will do the music of Richard Penniman, i.e., “Little Richard,” but when we do, we will do the music of all the great rockers.  Stay tuned.
