- 2021 Monday: JOE BIDEN/JOE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION NEWS– The U.S. Department of the Interior under the watchful eye of the first Norwegian-Native American Secretary Debra Haaland, is creating a new unit with which to investigate missing Native Americans. This is good. Many Native Americans disappear or are harmed on reservations, typically by outsiders, so this is something that is long overdue. Next, Joe Biden’s economic advisor Brian Deese says, ‘the economy has a long ways to go’ before it improves. Under the previous president, the economy was vastly improved whereas the Biden administration is returning it to the death spiral it was in when Obama-Biden were in charge. In other ‘Biden news,’ Dr. Jill Biden is being savaged for wearing fishnet stockings and looking like a ‘ho.’ Meanwhile, former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, RINO, says that ‘Joe Biden is lying to the American people’ on virtually everything. We concur but it’s not going to help you become president one day, doughboy.

What’s up with that? In other Biden administration news, U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen is calling for a global worldwide minimum tax on corporations so that they cannot relocate elsewhere in the world for a better deal. Wow. (Note- Senator Joe Manchin, D-WV, says he opposes the corporate tax hikes in the infrastructure bill).
- 2021 Monday B: FOREIGN NEWS/OVERSEAS NEWS I– Michael Oren, noted author and an Israeli-American, says that the ‘People’s Republic of China is extending its reach into the Middle East’ and that the ‘United States should take note.’ Next, Egypt holds a BIG MUMMIES PARADE in which it trotted out nearly 30 mummies in specially equipped vehicles so as to stimulate renewed interest in tourism from abroad. We would have loved to have seen that. In other foreign news, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says it ‘appears that the United States is undergoing a (communist) Chinese-style ‘Cultural Revolution’ which was not good for the citizens of China back in the day. We, ourselves, have said this on numerous occasions. Finally, Iran rejects talks with the United States, demands feeble old Joe Biden lift all sanctions against the jihadist regime, and compensates all damages done to them by the U.S. and then, we can talk. We say, “Nuke them!”
- 2021 Monday C: NATIONAL NEWS– Since the pandemic, violent crime has been rising at astronomical numbers in the U.S. The murder rate has shot up by 25-percent.

Yet another sign that things might be returning to normal. Meanwhile, we now learn that a breach at Facebook back in 2019 exposed the personal info of more than 53 million of its users online. Thank you, Mark Zuckerberg, you, and your Chinese wife, Priscilla Chan.

In other auto-related news, an ambulance rollover in the Empire State claimed the life of one person and injured several others. Elsewhere, Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson now faces 21 allegations of sexual misconduct with sex workers. Say what?
- 2021 Monday E: SHOWBIZ AND ENTERTAINMENT NEWS– “Godzilla v. King Kong’ did very well in its first weekend bringing in $32 million. Theaters are just reopening so this is a positive sign that things could return to normal. In other showbiz news, imprisoned sexual deviate and film producer Harvey Weinstein is seeking a new trial in that the jury in his first one he believes was prejudiced against him. It most likely was.
- 2021 Monday F: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE– Governor Doug Ducey, RINO-AZ, says that the ‘Joe Biden White House is divorced from reality when it comes to what is happening along the border between our nation and Mexico.’[xiii] Next, “Kooky Kamala” Harris once again breaks into hysterical, jackass-like laughter when questioned about ‘affordable childcare’ and all the help being given to legions of illegal alien brats being housed in U.S. facilities. This ditz never has the answers to any questions of import. Senator John Barrasso, R-WY, says that when he visited the southern border, left-wing activists working within the care facilities holding illegal alien brats demanded he delete all photos on his phone which he claims he did not. Finally, Governor Ron DeSantis backs his Attorney General Ashley Moody’s lawsuit filed against the Biden administration demanding it RESUME the deportations of criminal illegal aliens.[xiv]

Rosenstein says that ‘we should wait and see what information Special Counsel John Durham produces regarding Crossfire Hurricane.’ Meanwhile, DNC Chairman Jaime Harrison says that the ‘Democratic Party’s brand is broken, that the party is barely functioning. It’s all about organize, organize, organize.’
- 2021 Monday H: FOREIGN NEWS/OVERSEAS NEWS II– As Russian troops and armored units continue to amass along the eastern border of the Ukraine, Ukraine and NATO are going to hold joint military drills. Many believe that Vladimir Putin- a man, who by the way, signed legislation into law today that will allow him to rule with an iron fist until 2036- is testing senile old Joe Biden to see how far he can push the old coot before the U.S. responds. This is coming at a time when Russia is cementing its claim to many parts of the Arctic just as communist China, Iran, North Korea, and other nations are behaving aggressively to both the U.S. and to other nations around the globe. We believe we are witnessing a new Axis alliance which will conquer the world unfolding before our very eyes.
- 2021 Monday I: PEACH STATE HULLABALOO– Congresswoman Nancy Mace, R-SC 1st congressional district, calls out Major League Baseball and its Commissioner Rob Manfred’s hypocrisy over showing ID to vote in Georgia and MLB demanding people show ID when they pick up game tickets.

Trump ‘lost’ the state by was 12,000 votes. No matter Democrats are wetting their pants. Next, Georgia GOP officials told Coca-Cola® to get out of their state as they are another example of WOKEISM run amok.[xv] Elsewhere, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, blasts Commissioner Manfred over his hypocrisy when it comes to blasting Georgia while remaining mum on communist China. After all, MLB is tight with the Chi-Com intelligence gathering app, Tencent.

Next, former Missouri Governor Eric Greitens, also a U.S. candidate, says he will uphold the Trump agenda. Moving on, Senator Reverend Raphael Warnock, D-GA, had to remove a heretical ‘Christian’ tweet that irritated true believers and not Marxists like him. F**k them and f**k him. Speaking of Christianity, we saw amazing video of a Christian preacher in Canada throwing the cops out of the church- at least six or seven of them- who came to close down his services because there were more people there than the law would allow. F**k Canada.[xvi] God bless you, pastor!
- 2021 Monday K: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS IV– The Soros Group pledges $20 million to push the Biden agenda. Next, gun control advocates push the Biden administration to do more on guns. Moving on, the U.S. Supreme Court of the United States ends the Twitter-President Donald J. Trump feud by saying it’s moot. The court also passes on workplace religious bias cases.

The Band reformed in the early 1980s and went on the road with four of five members onboard: Levon Helm (drums, vocals, mandolins, and percussion), Rick Danko (fiddle, bass, vocals, guitars), Richard Manuel (pianos and vocals), and Garth Hudson (keyboards, saxophones). Joining them are the Cate Brothers and members of their band and the subsequent archival release we have for you today is “Live in Tokyo 1983” which came out on March 30, 2003. We have two glorious discs featuring the Band’s classic tracks along with material from the reformed group. This is a fabulous album that encapsulates a glorious time, one that might have been even better had Robbie Robertson decided to rejoin his mates but then, water under the bridge is water under the bridge. We hope you will seek this one out, give it a good listen, and then consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure- we think you will be glad you did. Enjoy.

[ii] We promoted the music of Steppenwolf, beginning on Friday, 25-May-2012 through Sunday, 17-June-2012. You definitely need to check the music of this iconic band out ASAP.
[iii] We first began promoting the music of Trapeze beginning on Monday, 15-October-2018 through Saturday, 27-October-2018. We hope you will seek the music of this famed band out and consider adding it to your collection.
[iv] When the time will be right for the presentation of Elvis Presley is unknown but if we are still going strong in the 2030s, we expect to do so. Please, stay tuned.
[v] We began promoting the music of Canned Heat on Sunday, 05-June-2011 through Sunday, 17-July-2011. We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.
[vi] We hope to share the music of Nirvana with the world within the next decade or so when we will do a series of Grunge Rock bands.

[x] We hope to present the music of KISS sometime in the late 2020s.
[xi] Political strategist Dick Morris says the entire thing is about collectivizing the American worker by forcing everyone to join labor unions. Amen, Dick!
[xii] Once again, the Democrats play one component of the identity politics group against another so they can then send Asian-Americans (and Pacific Islanders) out into the streets demanding a STOP to Asian HATE. Only problem with having members of the black community to commit your violent crimes is that unless they dress in whiteface, we know who they are, and we know who’s directing them: DEMOCRATS.
[xiii] Speaking of Arizona, the Democrat-controlled Fake News Media is blasting Arizona over its recount of all votes in the 2020 Presidential Election. Hey, Dems, if you have nothing to hide, what the f**k are you frightened of?
[xiv] Speaking of Governor Ron DeSantis, CBS’ “60 Minutes” attempted to twist an interview done with him at a news conference by rearranging it to suit their agenda and their narrative. Unluckily for them, the Florida governor had his people film the entire event so he could show the TRUTH. Come on, Fake News Media, when are you going to learn your lessons.
[xv] Right now, PepsiCo® stands to gain BIG unless, they, too, join the cavalcade of WOKEISM f**king up our country.
[xvi] These flipping people are entering the Nazi-Fascist period in their political history when the power of the state supplants all other rights including worship services. Canada is now an enemy of the United States and of free people everywhere.
