Currently, Joe is shy 180,827 deaths.   Now that the CDC says it’s ‘okay’ for kids aged 12-15 to get the shots, the Biden regime is urging parents to rush their children to the nearest drug store to get their immunizations for the Bat Fu Yuk out of Wuhan, communist China.    
  66. 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: 3,763,165 confirmed cases, 62,463 confirmed deaths, and 2,006,829 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,278,549 confirmed cases, 35,897 confirmed deaths, and 1,865,556 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 33,376 confirmed cases, 489 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 420,192 confirmed cases, 5,663 confirmed deaths, and 203,994 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., the U.S. Military: they have 291,757 confirmed cases, 348 confirmed deaths, and 278,457 confirmed recoveries.[xii]

  69. 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 $4.112 per gallon, $2.886 in Florida, $3.840 in Hawaii, and $3.522 in Washington state.[xviii]    Let’s look at one other location- South Carolina: $2.820.  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- Egypt: $2.114 per U.S. Gallon.[xix]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,278,809,428,671 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.
  70. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Today is Day 50 for ‘Border Czar “Kooky Kamala” Harris NOT to visit the border.  Meanwhile, the Biden regime continues the so-called ‘controversial’ Title 42 implemented by President Donald J. Trump back in March 2020 to close the southern border over Bat Fu Yuk concerns to all but the most essential travel.  People are asking where “Kooky Kamala” stands on the Biden regime continuing the Trump policy?  (Note- we all believe that the border remains wide open and that armies of illegal aliens continue pouring across it which is why we suggest seeding the Rio Grande with alligator pups, lining the border with minefields, laying in foo gas pits, building anti-personnel, anti-vehicle, and \anti-boat obstacles,  as well as to station fast-response units along the border.  We also believe that U.S. Special Forces MUST carry out targeted assassinations of human traffickers, smugglers, and other criminals operating along our southern border).  (Additional note- NO matter what these lying Biden regime officials say, people are still flooding across the southern border.  Period.  In April, more than 178,000 illegals were apprehended crossing the border while 6,000 illegal aliens per day are being released into the interior of the country.  Hunting licenses anyone?).[xxi]
  71. 2021 Wednesday G: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Fighting between the Israelis and the human fecal matter in Gaza continues, thanks to the Biden regime sending billions to the Iranians and millions to the Palestinian terrorists.  Missiles are crisscrossing the border with at least 55 dead, most of whom are Palestinians.[xxii]  The Israelis have launched targeted missile strikes on the Islamic National Bank and the Finance Ministry in Gaza leveling both buildings to the ground.  Speaking of the Iranians, so-called ‘Climate Czar’ John F. “Lurch” Kerry swore today that he NEVER informed the Iranians of Israeli covert ops in Syria.  The Iranians claim otherwise.  Still, the Biden regime is sending a flunky from the U.S. State Department to broker some sort of peace deal between the warring sides.  Good luck.  (Note- at least befuddled old Joe says that ‘Israel has a right to exist and to defend itself.  Exceptionally good, Joe, exceptionally good).
  72. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News II– Joe Biden’s erratic policies according to a new report are giving the Chi-Coms the ‘edge’ over the United States.  We concur.  In another surprise news, the U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is sanctioning a Chi-Com official, Yu Hui, who USED to hold office that allowed him to persecute the Falun Gong and other religious minorities.  Wow.  Next, Secretary Blinken stressed ‘U.S. resolve’ to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.  We bet Mr. Lavrov was trembling in his shoes.
  73. 2021 Wednesday I: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– A new report says that thanks to the Chi-Coms and their release of the ‘VID around the world and to the United States, drug overdose deaths in the U.S. went back up in 2020.  Thank you, Chi-Coms, thank you.  Meanwhile, U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas is raising questions about events that have become commonplace during the China Virus pandemic such as lockdowns and restrictions, especially on religious liberties.  Elsewhere, a panel agreed that the WHO- the World Health Organization- should have greater latitude in investigating the origins of pandemics.  Currently, the WHO is in the pocket of the Beijing Bullies.  Moving on, the Buckeye State is giving vaccinated citizens the opportunity to win a lottery of $1 million.  They hope everyone will rush out to get the vaccine.
  74. 2021 Wednesday J: Joe Biden Regime News I– White House reporters are lambasting the Biden regime over its lack of transparency.  Dumb asses, listen up!  First, Joe Biden can only get it together once or twice a week.  The man is senile.  Second, what you see is a continuation of the Obama-Biden regime that shut out the news media, conducted its own in-house photography sessions, and even spied and jailed reporters.  YOU OWN THIS.  They are unhappy that the White House comm team edits all quotes before they go to press.  Wow.  Sounds like Joseph Goebbels is somewhere behind the scenes…Elsewhere, 120 former U.S. military and Department of Defense officials are warning about the peril our country faces as well as that from Joe Biden’s mental fitness (or lack of it).
  75. 2021 Wednesday K: Joe Biden Regime News II– The Biden regime is going to provide federal COVID-19 relief aid to ILLEGAL ALIENS.  Next, Joe Biden is going full-blown Cloward and Piven by pushing his $4.1 trillion spending bill.  He said to the BIG FOUR House and Senate leaders- Kevin McCarthy and “Cocaine  Mitch” McConnell on the right side of the aisle and “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer and Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi- that all he has to do is ‘to snap his (flaccid) fingers and so it shall be.’  Whoa, Joe, whoa. The GOP leaders told ‘Forgetful Joe’ moments later that ‘raising taxes on the American people is a nonstarter.’  
  76. 2021 Wednesday L: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News–  According to Newsmax, prosecutors in the Derek Chauvin case asked for an ‘upward departure’ which means that they want Chauvin to get more time than he originally would have due to the fact that he abused his power.  The judge in the case agreed and made a ruling that will allow the sentence to become harsher both for him and the other three officers awaiting trial.   Meanwhile, the POS shooter who opened up in Times Square, New York City, a few days ago and shot three people including a young child was apprehended down in Florida. 
  77. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News I– Last night, she was running her mouth and today, she is still running her mouth.  Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, was voted out as House GOP conference chair.  She went to the mics after being humiliated and said she ‘will work to make sure that President Donald J. Trump NEVER gets close to the White House ever again.’  WTF is wrong with you, Liz?  Just cross over to the Democrat side of the aisle, you and your father were NEVER flipping Republicans, you frigging moron.[xxiii]  Ret. Col. Denton Knapp says, ‘Cheney’s ouster was justified.’  Correct.  She is not a team player.  However, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, says that the ‘House GOP will advance with a unified conservative vision’ as the real battle is winning the House (and Senate) back in 2022.
  78. 2021 Wednesday N: Political News II– Yet another Democrat domino topples, this time new tax records show that a former staffer for Senator Dianne “The Disoriented” Feinstein- Daniel Jones who runs the ultra-left-wing, pro-Marxist TDIP, aka the Democracy Integrity Project, colluded with George Soros, the globalist former Nazi now a pro-communist scumbag to fund the so-called ‘Steele Dossier,’ the phony document with which the Democrats went after President Donald J. Trump.  It is amazing as to how as time passes; more information comes to light that continues to show just what an evil, bogus sham investigation the ‘Special Counsel’ Robert S. Mueller III was.  NOTHING BUT CRAP.  Meanwhile, Senator Maggie Hassan, DS-NH, considered to be most at risk in next year’s elections, blasts the Biden regime’s economic policies as being bad for the Granite State.  Wise up, Joe.  Even members of your party are preparing to swim against the current.
  79. 2021 Wednesday O: Political News III– Two far-left Democratic-Socialist senators, “Crazy Mazie” Hirono, Hawaii, and “Creepy Cory” Booker, New Jersey, are planning to set up a ‘new caucus’ in the haloed halls of Congress (yeah, right), the BIPOC- Black, Indigenous, and People of Color caucus.  Wow.  Big deal.  ONLY Democrats who are ‘black, indigenous, and people of color’ will qualify while Republicans who identify with those same groups will be kept at arm’s length as though they have B.O.  What a load of crap.  Still, look at the two losers setting it up and we mean LOSERS, with a capital “L.”  Elsewhere, H.R. 1 is stuck in a Senate committee.  We hope it remains there as though it’s in a tar pit.
  80. 2021 Wednesday P: National Security News– The federal government is easing restrictions in 12 states with which to combat the gasoline shortages thanks to the cyberattack on the Colonial pipeline that runs from Texas through 16 other states ending up in Maine.  Yet, the feds do not seem to want to address the hack, claiming it’s a confidential business matter.  Uh-huh.  Experts claim that the cyberattack exposes the lack of required defenses protecting pipelines such as the Colonial pipeline.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

As we said yesterday, manager and father Murray Wilson was keeping the Beach Boys at a frenetic pace.  The band’s fourth album, “Little Deuce Coupe,” came out on October 07, 1963, and was a repackaging of sorts of the band’s hot rod songs plus loads of other new tunes.  Brian Wilson was writing at a lightning pace and the tunes were all great to be sure.  Featured here are “Little Deuce Coupe,” “Be True to Your School,” “Shut Down,” “Spirit of America,” and “A Young Man is Gone.”  The band features Brian Wilson (bass, piano, and vocals), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Carl Wilson (lead guitar and vocals), Mike Love (vocals), and Alan Jardine (rhythm guitar and vocals), a neighborhood friend like Marks.  This is a wonderful album one we know everyone is going to enjoy so zip on out and add this one to your collection- we think you will be extremely glad you did.  Enjoy.

[i] We began promoting the music of Mountain beginning on Friday, 14-December-2012 through Sunday, 20-January-2013.  This also included West, Bruce & Laing but sadly, we overlooked Leslie West’s solo career so please stay tuned for his discography sometime in the next 8-12 years.

[ii] We promoted the music of the Small Faces, Faces, and a bunch more interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We encourage everyone to search out the music of the various bands in this collection so you can add them to your growing music collection.

[iii] We began promoting the music of an interconnected group of bands including the Small Faces, Faces, and Rod Stewart beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This was a massive undertaking of rock bands and solo artists so we hope you will seek them out and consider adding the music to your album collection.

[iv] We shared the music of the Rolling Stones (and the group’s individual members) beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members solo projects.

[v] We began promoting the music of not only Traffic but also the Spencer Davis Group, Steve Winwood, Chris Wood, Jim Capaldi, and Dave Mason.  The presentation commenced on Monday, 30-November-2015 through Sunday, 20-March-2016.  This offering also included Blind Faith.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.

[vi] We hope to present the music of KISS sometime in the late 2020s. 

[vii] Not clear as to when we present the music of the Fairport Convention and of Richard Thompson, their famed guitarist but we sure as heck hope we do within the next decade.

[viii] See earlier footnote.

[ix] In late 2019- early 2020, the World Health Organization says the COVID-19 strain of this Chinese-engineered POS disease was NOT transmissible between human beings…until it was.

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

[xxi] Late in the afternoon- and this is a good one- Newsmax ran a Chiron crawl that said, “The Biden administration, (i.e., the regime), is ordering construction on the border wall to begin again.”  Say what?  We cannot believe that mixed-up, befuddled, stumbling, bumbling, drooling old Joe Biden has reordered construction on the wall again.  Say what?

[xxii] Interestingly enough, while lunatic members among the House Democrats continue calling for an end of Israel, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi came out and blasted Hamas, the POS terrorist organization that needs to be eliminated from the face of the planet.  Wow.  Didn’t know “Mumbles” had it in her; still, once the AOC Suicide Squad begins tuning “Mumbles” up, she may very well reverse her statement.

[xxiii] President Donald J. Trump released a statement today in which he said he expects to see Liz Cheney become the next paid commentator on CNN or MSNBC.  She will be removed from office in the primary race next year in Wyoming.

[xxiv] Not sure when we will do the music of Jay-Z.

[xxv] We hope to do the music of the Go-Gos one day.  They were awesome.

[xxvi] We hope to do the Foo Fighters when we do Soundgarden, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Stone Temple Pilots, Pearl Jam, and maybe even Korn.

[xxvii] Not sure as to when we will do Carole King?  Perhaps in 20 years or so.

[xxviii] We definitely want to do the music of Todd Rundgren and Nazz as well as Aerosmith.

[xxix] We look forward to doing the music of Ike and Tina Turner one day. Maybe she will be included as a solo act.

[xxx] For the hell of it, we may be doing the music of the Monkees sooner- these guys deserve it.

  66. 2017 Wednesday: A NATO convoy navigating the streets of Kabul, Afghanistan, are attacked by suicide bombers.  In the ensuing blast and aftermath, eight civilians are blown to bits while another 28 suffer injuries in varying degrees.  Elsewhere, the government of Puerto Rico files for the largest government bankruptcy in U.S. history on this date.
  67. 2018 Thursday: On this date, the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences votes to expel two perverts, Bill Cosby, and Roman Polanski.  Meanwhile, Vice President Mike Pence postponed his upcoming visit to Brazil so increased effort could be put into the upcoming summit between President Donald J. Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un.  Elsewhere, President Trump signs an executive order giving greater freedoms to faith-based initiatives which the Obama-Biden administration did everything to crush.
  68. 2019 Friday: The California state senate passes a bill that is highly unconstitutional, one that would prevent President Donald J. Trump from appearing on either the primary or the November ballot (should he win the nomination) unless he hands his tax records over for scrutiny by his enemies.  This BS bill would not stand. 
  69. 2020 Sunday: Today, global confirmed cases of ‘communist China’s gift to the world,’ COVID-19, aka the Kung Flu, stand at 3,506,729; confirmed deaths stand at 247,470, and recovered cases stand at 1,125,236.  In the United States, confirmed cases are 1,183,633; confirmed deaths rest at 68,276; and confirmed recoveries are 153,204.  Cases in China?  Not going to share them because they never change; such is communism.  Anyhow, President Donald J. Trump does a digital town hall from the Lincoln Memorial with Fox News Channel.  Of course, his Democrat enemies blast him for ‘doing it there.’  “Anywhere else other than the Lincoln Memorial” is what they cry and whine but anywhere Trump would have done it would have met the exact same criticisms.   
  70. 2021 Monday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 154,172,596 confirmed cases, +667,259, 3,226,725  confirmed deaths, +10,434, and 132,290,056 confirmed recoveries, +85,346.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,229,445 confirmed cases, UP 38,851 from yesterday’s reporting, 591,514 confirmed deaths, UP 443,[iv] and 25,907,570 confirmed recoveries, UP 129,706.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[v]   The FDA is giving Pfizer the okay to begin giving young people ages 12 to 16 the vaccinations next week.

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

103. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, APRIL 13, 2022

Friends, we are rebuilding our brand to avoid our search results being hidden by Microsoft Bing. We can only wonder what their problems are, and the most important thing is that if the GOP reclaims Congress in their fall, there must be some sort of accountability for Big Tech that they cannot cancel you without written reasons as well as an appellate process by which the canceled party can seek a fair and impartial hearing.

  74. 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.
  75. 2021 Monday A: JOE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION NEWS– U.S. Secretary of Energy Jennifer M. Granholm says that ‘Joe Biden will pass the infrastructure bill will pass IF the American people support it.’  We don’t.  Senator Roy Blunt, R-MO, says that the ‘infrastructure program pushed by the Biden administration would achieve bipartisan support IF it focused on infrastructure.’  Another critic of the administration’s plan is Senator Roger Wicker, R-MS, blasts Joe Biden over cutting out the 2017 tax cuts which is part of the new ‘infrastructure plan.’[xi]  However, U.S. Transportation Secretary ‘Mayor Pete’ Buttigieg broke with his boss today when he said, “AOC’s infrastructure program is bolder than Joe Biden’s.’  Wow.  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).
  76. 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!”
  77. 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. Speaking of violent crime, another attack on Asian-Americans occurred in Oakland, California, yesterday when several BLACK thugs attacked an elderly Asian couple in front of their own home.[xii] In other news, Delta Airlines is busy rescheduling 100 scheduled flights due to staff shortages.  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.
  78. 2021 Monday D: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– Over the course of a weekend, an 11-year-old girl lost her life in Florida during a street race.   Speaking of the Sunshine State, a toxic waste spill at the non-functioning Piney Point phosphate plant has forced the evacuation of at least 300 homes.  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?
  79. 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.
  80. 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]
  81. 2021 Monday G: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– The American Civil Liberties Union, ACLU- the, warns Democrats against their push for COVID-19 passports when they don’t demand voter ID at election time.  Next, New York state lawmakers have proposed hefty tax increases on the wealthiest among them which would make the Empire State the highest tax state in the country.   Elsewhere, Rod J. 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.’
  82. 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.
  83. 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.  Meanwhile, as GOP officials in Georgia investigate rampant voter fraud in the 2020 Elections, election officials are unable to provide chain of custody documents for more than 400,000 ballots when all President Donald J. 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.  (Note- Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, says he will not throw out the first pitch at the Texas Rangers baseball game over the MLB and its despicable actions).
  84. 2021 Monday J: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee was trolling liberals by saying, he is now going to identify as Chinese to get preferential treatment.  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!
  85. 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.  Speaking of Twitter, after Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, sends out an Easter tweet in which, she says, “HE IS RISEN!  HAPPY EASTER!” Twitter suspends her.  Suspends her.  WTF?

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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.

[i] We shared the music of the Hollies with the world beginning on Monday, 29-August-2016 through Thursday, 03-November-2016.

[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.

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

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

[ix] We shared the music of Deep Purple, Ian Gillan, Captain Beyond, Elf, and Rainbow beginning on Tuesday, 20-March-2018 and concluded this massive offering on Sunday, 14-October-2018.  Please seek out the music by all of these phenomenal bands.  All are fabulous.

[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.

92. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, APRIL 02, 2022

2021 Friday: TOP STORY OF THE DAY- An apparent member of the Nation of Islam- 25-year-old Noah Green- accelerated his vehicle into a barricade manned by Capitol Hill law enforcement on the U.S. Senate side of Constitution Avenue. One officer- William Evans- died in the event as did the suspect when he leapt from his smoking car with a machete and was shot dead for his troubles. It’s sad for the Left as we are sure they would have taken great delight in identifying the dead perp as a member of the Trump inner circle when in reality, it was one of the Left’s countless tools.

  60. 2005 Saturday: After 26 years and 168 days, Pope St. John Paul II concluded his time as pontiff on this date.  He first became the Vicar of Christ on October 16, 1978, and with President Ronald Reagan and British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher toppled the Soviet Union.
  61. 2010 Friday: Rescuers at a Shanxi mine in communist China are attempting to reach 153 trapped miners.  They report hearing signs of life including tapping, banging, and voices calling for help.  Family members of the trapped miners have been angry with local government believing they have consigned these people to their fates.
  62. 2011 Saturday: With the Arab Spring underway, the North Korean government decides that it had better crackdown on computers and other electronics that could broadcast news of what is going on elsewhere around the world thus causing problems for their brand of crackpot communism.  Anyone with unsanctioned devices, well, three generations of their family will end up in the gulags.
  63. 2012 Monday: Three widows and two daughters of Osama bin Laden were charged with illegally living in Pakistan; they were sentenced with 45 days in jail and fined $114 each.  Elsewhere, British Prime Minister David Cameron- speaking on the 30th anniversary of the Falklands War- refers to it as a ‘profound wrong.’  This followed a still angry Argentina threatening action against UK banks and their tacit ally in the conflict, the United States.
  64. 2013 Tuesday: The Arms Trade Treaty, the first-ever bill to regulate the global trade in conventional weapons, is passed by the U.N. General Assembly.  Meanwhile, in Tamaulipas, Mexico, authorities discover nine mutilated bodies in the trunk of a car.  How nice.  Moving on, in Peshawar, Pakistan, seven people are killed in a terrorist attack on a power station.  Finally, Uruguay passed legislation legalizing homosexual marriage on this date.
  65. 2014 Wednesday: In the United States, the National Security Agency—aka the NSA—announces that it has been using a legal loophole by which, it monitors, collects, and stores millions of phone records and emails of the American people.  Thank you, President Obama, for authorizing this outrage!  Meanwhile, the United States Supreme Court ruled that limits on the total amount of money individuals can give political candidates and political action committees were unconstitutional.  Elsewhere, Fort Hood reports a shooting on the base.
  66. 2015 Thursday: After being lost at sea for 66 days, rescuers find 37-year-old South Carolina man, Louis Jordan.  He had gone sailing in an antique sailing boat, which capsized and to which, he clung.  He survived on rainwater and fish he managed to catch while being adrift.  Elsewhere, at the Garissa University in Kenya, members of the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam, kill 140 people and wound countless others.  Worthless scumbags.
  67. 2016 Saturday: As the migrant crisis continues to ravage Europe (thanks to Germany’s Angela Merkel welcoming illegal immigrants to labor in the Fatherland’s factories), Austria says, ‘enough is enough’ and tells Italy that they are going to deploy troops on their mutual border because they don’t want any more Muslim migrants and refugees tramping through their country from their southern neighbor.  Who can blame them?   They intend to put troops in the Brenner Pass.  Just like World War I, Austrian and Italian friction.  Some issues never mend…
  68. 2017 Sunday: A custodian and several confederates at the Muslim shrine at Sargodha, Pakistan, takes the lives of 20 and leaves numerous others injured.  Thank you, “religion of peace.”  Elsewhere, media is under attack in Mexico and in Ciudad Juarez, the fabled newspaper Norte, publishes its final print edition seeing as how things are flipping crazy in that part of the country.
  69. 2018 Monday: In the 80th NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship Game, Villanova whips Michigan 79-62.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump lambastes the Chi-Coms for possessing the chutzpah to put retaliatory tariffs of up to 25-percent on 128 American products including American wines and pork products.  This is in response to the U.S. having slapped tariffs onto Chinese imports of both steel and aluminum, two poorly made Chi-Com products they have habitually dumped into the U.S. sans any blowback- until now.
  70. 2019 Tuesday: Climatologists claim that Canada is warming at twice the rate of the rest of the world, increasing 2.3% in the northern environs of the country.  Green New Deal lovers are dancing in the streets at the news.  Meanwhile, NASA lays out plans to return to the moon in 2024 and to put astronauts on Martian soil by 2033.  Meanwhile, Google +, a highly popular social media app (although Google says different) begins deleting its user accounts.  People had wonderful sites in perhaps one of the best social media platforms but Google- since they blew the 2016 Presidential Election notified its users in late 2018 that it was going to shut down the site due to low user activity and vulnerabilities that- if we are to believe them- were too difficult to fix.  They were too LAZY to fix them IF they existed.  Google shut down nothing else…scumbags.[viii]  
  71. 2020 Thursday: COVID-19 continues running amok around the world.  The Democratic Party has postponed its 2020 Convention until mid-August with the GOP following them on August 24 through the 27th.   In the United States, we currently have 226,300 confirmed cases with many more to be sure plus about 5,300 confirmed deaths.  The Guardian claims there are more than 750,000 confirmed cases worldwide with the death toll skyrocketing to over 36,000.  Unemployment numbers for the previous week double the prior week by coming in at 6.6 million new unemployment claims.  Some economists project as many as 20 million additional unemployed by the time we hit May.  Cloward and Piven would be delighted.  Meanwhile, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announces he will go back to the well in China so he can buy some of their top-of-the-line ventilators.  Does no one ever learn?  Food banks in the United States report a 92% jump in people seeking food thanks to the Wuhan Virus.   On a lighter note, Egypt reports a spike in ISIS attacks in the northern Sinai.  We say, “Crucify them!”
  72. 2021 Friday: TOP STORY OF THE DAY– An apparent member of the Nation of Islam- 25-year-old Noah Green- accelerated his vehicle into a barricade manned by Capitol Hill law enforcement on the U.S. Senate side of Constitution Avenue.  One officer- William Evans- died in the event as did the suspect when he leapt from his smoking car with a machete and was shot dead for his troubles.  It’s sad for the Left as we are sure they would have taken great delight in identifying the dead perp as a member of the Trump inner circle when in reality, it was one of the Left’s countless tool. The self-proclaimed ‘follower of Farrakhan’ has had his Facebook page ripped down from the Internet within 30 minutes.  Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, says it would be great if Joe Biden called for unity when (or if) he addresses this tragic event.  Still, we expect whatever portion of Fort Pelosi was removed last week will be redoubled this week with more calls for a U.S. infantry and armor division patrolling the Capital city of the United States.
  73. 2021 Friday A: JOE BIDEN NEWS– A mentally challenged Joe Biden held his first Cabinet meeting today and instead of celebrating the qualifications of its members as President Donald J. Trump did, he celebrates the diversity of its members. “It’s look like America,” crowed the president but can they do the job, Joe?  That is what we want to know.  Meanwhile, in a recent interview, Hunter Biden- the drug-addled family money-launderer says that the ‘controversial laptop could very well be his, he just doesn’t remember.’  Wow.  Next, Joe Biden (or the voice in his ear) asked his Education secretary if he has the legal right to forgive ALL federal student loan debt.   Elsewhere, Joe Biden says he’s going to hold indirect talks with Iran.  That ought to be good.  Finally, he has been in talks with the Ukraine- shaking them down again, there, Joe?
  74. 2021 Friday B: JOE BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE– Shocking videos showing cartel human traffickers tossing children under the age of 5 over the 14-foot-high border wall continue to emerge and still, the Biden administration will do nothing to prohibit the ongoing illegal alien invasion.  Even more distressing, illegal border crossings have risen to a 15-year-high and yet old Joe Biden sits in the basement playing pocket pool.  Yikes.   Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, says that ‘Joe Biden could solve the border crisis by denying entry to all adult illegal aliens.’  Amen.  Even more shocking is that ONLY 33-percent of U.S. Hispanics believe that what Joe Biden is doing along the border is the ‘right thing.’  Next, Houston, Texas, the Drug Enforcement Agency reports a massive spike in fentanyl trafficking what with wide open borders.
  75. 2021 Friday C: SECOND AMENDMENT/GUN NEWS– 2nd Amendment rights activists are calling for the prosecution of Hunter Biden over HIS lying on an FBI background gun check.  He said he did NOT use drugs on the form and folks, which is a felony.  What does it take to send this loser to prison?  Elsewhere, always belligerent Hillary Rodham Clinton says that the United States has a ‘gun worshipping problem.’
  76. 2021 Friday D: COVID-19 NEWS– As the White House continues seeking ways by which it can force vaccine passports onto the American people but NOT to force them being shown when one votes, propaganda continues to rise.  Oh, we need mandatory proof of one’s China Virus vaccination so one can participate in normal life but when it comes to protesting and voting, no proof of vaccination or even face masks is important.  A load of festering fecal matter, folks.  Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, signed an executive order today prohibiting any type of COVID-19 vaccination documentation.   Meanwhile, feeble old Joe Biden wants to vaccinate every frigging illegal alien as they pour into the country sans any kind of charge, yet another give-away for which, the American taxpayer will have to pay.  
  77. 2021 Friday E: FOREIGN NEWS/OVERSEAS NEWS– A major rail catastrophe occurred in the Republic of China today- the free and independent Taiwan- when a speeding passenger train exiting a tunnel plowed into a truck that was somehow on the tracks and came off the tracks.  At least 50 people died in the accident with hundreds more injured.  Next, the U.S., Japan, and South Korea commence talks on North Korea.   Moving on, Russia hammers Twitter with a major fine for failing to remove tweets calling for Russian opposition protests.
  78. 2021 Friday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– North Dakota declares a statewide emergency as raging wildfires threaten hundreds of homes thus forcing mass evacuations.   Next, the NYPD now allows the smoking of marijuana in public.   Moving on, today is Day 5 of the trial of former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin.   Elsewhere, seven Texas police officers have been fired in the death of a black jail inmate.  Finally, the U.S. Army is investigating the theft of a National Guardsman’s rifle in Washington, D.C.
  79. 2021 Friday G: ECONOMIC AND BUSINESS NEWS– the U.S. reportedly has added 916,000 new jobs and has brought unemployment down to 6-percent.  Still, millions of Americans remain on unemployment assistance due to the Chi-Vi but it’s a sign that things may be improving.   Meanwhile, Tesla reports that its 1st quarter production and delivery numbers far surpassed expectations.  Elsewhere, with the visit of Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga to Washington, D.C., the U.S., and Japan hope to solve a supply chain problem with the manufacturing of microchips.  Soon, two factories will be up and running in the American Southwest.
  80. 2021 Friday H: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrissey slams the Biden administration for the COVID-19 Porkulus Relief Bill that prohibits any state receiving ‘relief monies’ to offer its citizens tax cuts.  AG Morrissey calls this condition, “Unconstitutional.”  Meanwhile, actress Rose McGowan found herself suspended from Twitter after mocking the easily mockable ‘women’s empowerment summit’ held by former President Bill “Corndog” Clinton and “Kooky Kamala” “Sleep-Her-Way-to-the-Top” Harris.  Mocking this sham ‘summit’ as well as mentioning “Corndog” Clinton’s close ties to Jeffrey Epstein got her banned.  Elsewhere, security experts say that ‘Joe Biden’s $2 trillion infrastructure slush fund does nothing to combat cybersecurity threats faced by the United States.’  Thanks, Joe.
  81. 2021 Friday I: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– We knew it was inevitable, Major-League Baseball has stripped BOTH this year’s All-Star Game in Atlanta, Georgia, as well as the MLB draft because of the new voting law.  What a bunch of losers, NO more baseball for us.  Elsewhere, unrepentant communist Angela Davis tells a bunch of prep school students to dismantle capitalism, the system that has made her somewhat wealthy.  Next, Notre Dame’s rector says it will require 15-to-20 years to fully restore the fire-ravaged cathedral.
  82. 2021 Friday J: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 129,761,772 confirmed cases, +729,489, 2,830,055  confirmed deaths, +11,814, and 73,546,720 confirmed recoveries, +348,535.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,731,414 confirmed cases, up 117,822 same as yesterday’s reporting, 558,213 confirmed deaths, UP 1,726, and 118,601,727 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[ix] 
  83. 2021 Friday K: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 231,003 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States– feeble old Joe, in another one-to-two weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  FROZEN FIGURES TODAY…
  84. 2021 Friday L: 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: 3,671,557 confirmed cases, 59,370 confirmed deaths (less than yesterday’s), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,064,517 confirmed cases, 33,493 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 29,888 confirmed cases, 460 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 368,049 confirmed cases, 5,316 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Massachusetts, the home of Boston Cream Pie (the one with pineapple and cherries): currently, they have 638,339 confirmed cases, 17,217 confirmed deaths, but sadly, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Here’s one- Governor Phil Scott, RINO-VT, is trying to make the left happy by setting up vaccine distribution based solely on RACE.
  85. : FOREIGN OVERSEAS COVID-19 NUMBERS– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 833,456 confirmed cases, 6,220 confirmed deaths, and 820,703 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).   Let’s look at one other country- Lebanon, home of the world’s largest nonnuclear explosion: 471,962 cases of the virus, 9,286 confirmed deaths and 373,833 confirmed recoveries.[x]  You know, it’s been a while, is anyone curious as to what the figures are in COMMUNIST CHINA, the home of this diabolical, election-stealing viral s**t: the Chi-Coms claim to have 90,217 confirmed cases, same number of deaths for months now, 4,636, and 85,394 confirmed recoveries.  This is frigging embarrassing people.  Screw them.

  88. 2021 Friday P: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS IV– A new report suggests that Twitter and Facebook employees donated exclusively to Democrats.  No surprise here, everyone knows this.  Next, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken seeks Israel’s ‘mutual treatment of Palestinians.’  In Israel, Israeli Arabs live a life far better than the ones lived by their counterparts in the Gaza Strip.  Go figure.
  89. 2021 Friday Q: MEGA-MILLIONS– stay tuned for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1647 with a $168 million jackpot on the line awaiting some lucky guy or gal to reel it in…here are the numbers: 10, 42, 48, 53, 62, and Mega 19.  Out of 80,495 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR plus the Mega for a prize of $5,400 apiece.

  70. 2021 Thursday: JOE BIDEN’S FIRST PRESS CONFERENCE IN 65 DAYS- An extremely fatigued, slow-moving, mumbling, stumbling Joe Biden gave his first official press conference today.  He began mumbling through his pre-rehearsed lines, clearing his throat, looking furtively around the room, and spewing whatever the voice in his earpiece told him to spew.  This was extremely embarrassing for the American people and in the eyes of the world, deeply humiliating.  It is clear that Joe Biden is NOT his own man but a marionette on a string being danced about by someone else.   Within 3 minutes starting at 10:29 A.M. PDT he moved to questions by 10:32 with Zeke from the Associated Press getting the first shot.  Joe said, “I was elected to solve problems,” said Joe.   Regarding the border, Joe Biden says, “Nothing has changed, it happens every year, hundreds of thousands of illegals come here every year.”  He says it’s ‘NOT because he’s a good guy but it’s because this is the safest time not to die in the desert coming here.’  Wow, Joe.  Joe then blamed President Donald J. Trump for ‘dismantling the system, defunding HHS, limiting the number of beds available, and doing all sorts of other evil things that poor old Joe is now having to rebuild.’  (Note- Joe, just build the wall and f**king deport them all!).  Joe lied by saying he is sending back ‘thousands, tens of thousands of people who are over age 18 and single as well as vast majorities of families.’  He said that ‘they are not crossing our border.’   (Joe went about 62 minutes and answered questions from approximately 13-14 reporters.  Congrats, Joe, you didn’t topple over, and blood did not start flowing out of your eyes, ears, and nostrils).[viii] 
  71. 2021 Thursday A: LOGAN ACT VIOLATIONS- Information is beginning to arise showing that former U.S. Secretary of State (and current climate change czar) John F. Kerry committed numerous Logan Act violations by conducting shadow diplomacy behind the Trump administration’s back with all manner of noxious toadstools such as Iran, the Chi-Coms, the Russians, the Venezuelans, and every other crap-hole country in the world.  Mr. Kerry should be doing time in Ft. Leavenworth for his crimes.
  72. 2021 Thursday B: POLITICAL NEWS I- a recent report shows that moderate Democrats outperformed their crazier left-wing Democrats in the 2020 Elections, yet the loony tunes liberal losers seem to retain control.   Next, Senator Bernie Sanders- breaking with the Biden administration- is demanding higher taxes than those proposed by Biden and his Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen.  Communism is expensive to fund.  Next, Joe Biden is planning on spending another $10 billion to get more shots into arms and has announced that he is going to double his pledge of getting 100 million vaccines administered in his first 100 days to 200 million doses.   In other fascinating news, the U.S. Secret Service tried to CONCEAL from the eyes of the American people a gun purchase by Hunter Biden.  Need that money to fend off people trying to steal his crack cocaine.
  73. 2021 Thursday C: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I- The Atlanta Police Department arrested a man walking around the city carrying a concealed rifle and handguns.  Another fellow with a sex addiction?  Speaking of firearms, a federal appeals court in Hawaii has ruled that Americans have no intrinsic rights to open or conceal carry firearms of any kind.  Uh, okay.  Elsewhere, the murdering (allegedly) POS Syrian refugee who shot up King Soopers Grocery Store in Boulder, Colorado, earlier in the week appeared in court for the first time.  The judge denied Mr. Ahmad Al-Aliwi Alissa bail pending a mental health evaluation.   The scumbag should not be getting bail of any sort.  Period.   Next, Joe Biden backs a Supreme Court ruling on recent ruling in which law enforcement confiscated some schmo’s guns.
  74. 2021 Thursday D: COVID-19 CHI-VI- Scientists are studying four different possible origins for the Wuhan Virus Pandemic encircling the globe for about the fourth time now.  The Chi-Coms swear ‘nothing to see here’ and that ‘the U.S. Army snuck it into our country.’  Oh, please, you guys are communists, you are a bunch of lying f**ks.  Meanwhile, AstraZeneca continues to swear that despite all the claims to the contrary and controversy surrounding their vaccine for the China Virus, it’s still 76-percent effective.   Elsewhere, Empire State Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo finds himself in yet another crossfire, this time over him, his family, and sycophants receiving COVID-19 tests when very few tests were available to John and Jane Q. Public, the “Killer Governor” went behind the scenes and did what he needed to do for him, his family, and his hangers-on.  This is yet another impeachable offense facing the so-called “Lov Gov.”  Finally, the Biden administration is going to partner with dialysis clinics so the vaccines can be distributed to more people on a faster basis.
  75. 2021 Thursday E: POLITICAL NEWS II- When asked about him supporting elimination of the filibuster,[ix] Joe Biden hemmed and hawed about that.  Next, some ignorant reporter was asking Joe Biden if he were going to run again, if “Kooky Kamala” would be his running mate, and if he thought he would be running against President Donald J. Trump in 2024.  Even for us, this is incredibly stupid, and we would never ask anything about 2022, much less 2024.  Most people believe Joe is not going to be in office for a year, much less four, so why ask the old bugger if he will be seeking a second term, whether Ms. Sleep-her-way-to-the-Top will be his running mate, and whether the guy from whom he stole the election will be running  to win it back- a third time.  WTF?  This question, however, caused Joe Biden to begin mumbling and whispering.   
  76. 2021 Thursday F: POLITICAL NEWS III- Scandal-ridden former Missouri Governor Eric Greitens is considering a run to replace retiring Senator Roy Blunt.  The Republican former governor was involved in a steamy sex scandal and most people in the state are praying that someone better will step up and replace Senator Blunt.  We shall see.  Next, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says, ‘H.R. 1 is the single most dangerous bill in Congress today.’  Note- Georgia just passed some hardcore voting restriction laws designed to thwart H.R. 1.  Meanwhile, former CBP boss Tom Homan says that ‘the appointment of “Kooky Kamala” to be the new ‘Border Czar’ has to be the absolute worst person for the job.’  NO one respects “Kooky” because (1) she is unlikable, (2) unqualified, and (3) as untalented as they come.  She will make things far worse than they already are.   Next, according to Facebook’s oversight board, the permanent ban of President Donald J. Trump might not be so permanent (they are afraid that he is developing a superior social media product and want to cut him some slack so perhaps he will be lulled into complacency and won’t follow through).  Finally, we learn that Google received its ‘monopoly’ following their aid to President Barack Hussein Obama’s successful re-election bid.  No wonder the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day at Google Blogger soon found itself behind Google’s blockade.
  77. 2021 Thursday G: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II- A rare Vincent Van Gogh painting of Paris is going up for auction.   Meanwhile, the Olympic Torch Relay kicks off under the cloud of the Chinese Virus.  Elsewhere, first time jobless claims last week fell to 684,000 new ones which is the best number since the start of the pandemic. Another 242,00 filed for special pandemic relief last week.  In total, 4.1 million workers remain on unemployment benefits.   Meanwhile, HHS is going to partner with the Pentagon to take two Texas military bases, Fort Bliss and Lackland Air Force Base so they can send illegal alien brats there to stay.   The Biden administration is struggling to find holding pens for all the illegals which is why partnering with private prisons across the U.S. would be a great way to house people who are already going to end up being imprisoned a taste of what’s to come.  Viva El Norte!
  78. 2021 Thursday H: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 124,683,860 confirmed cases, +579,564, 2,742,357  confirmed deaths, +9,863, and 70,731,503 confirmed recoveries, +338,716.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,223,587 confirmed cases, up 61,840 from yesterday’s reporting, 550,726 confirmed deaths, UP 1,315, and 117,401,619 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them. 
  79. 2021 Thursday I: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 222,259 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  
  80. 2021 Thursday J: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,648,021 confirmed cases (same as yesterday’s count), 57,909 confirmed deaths (same as yesterday’s), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,950 confirmed cases, 454 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 359,290 confirmed cases, 5,249 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., the second highest state after California- Texas: currently, they have 2,762,648 confirmed cases, 47,701 confirmed deaths, but sadly, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 829,689 confirmed cases, 6,122 confirmed deaths, and 808,869 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).   Let’s look at one other country- Switzerland, home of (allegedly) lots of Nazi loot: 588,118 cases of the virus, 10,247 confirmed deaths and 317,600 confirmed recoveries.

  82. 2021 Thursday L: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE THREE 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 $3.885 per gallon, $3.630 in Hawaii, and $3.323 in Washington state.[xiv]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,093,608,650,950 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven running amok. 
  83. 2021 Thursday M: POLITICAL NEWS IV- South Dakota Senator Mike Rounds, Republican, said he’d like to see the Biden administration begin grabbing legally-owned firearms from the American people.  Next, Joe Biden defends his crappy border stance, saying that all kids who make it across will not be returned home, that the American people will take care of them.  He also blames President Donald J. Trump for the BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE for which he and his administration bear FULL RESPONSIBILITY.[xvi]  Joe, for Christ’s sake (If you still believe in His teachings), BUILD THE WALL, AND DEPORT THEM ALL.  Stop giving them COVID-19 relief checks, stop giving them hotel accommodations, we have Americans sleeping in the streets, in their cars, and in back alleyways, stop with the fricking illegal aliens.  Enough is flipping enough already![xvii]  Meanwhile, Joe Biden slaps down another Trump-era policy by handing the Palestinians $15 million of taxpayer monies to help them combat the Chinese Virus.  WTF!  Elsewhere, Axios says workers installed bullet-proof doors in the U.S. House of Representatives today.    
  84. 2021 Thursday N: POLITICAL NEWS V- New California Attorney General Rob Bonta once tried to recruit communists to work within state government.  WTF?  West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrissey blasts the Biden administration for trying to advance its crackpot climate change agenda via its COVID-19 Relief Bill and through its upcoming ‘infrastructure bill.’   Elsewhere, New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo blasts those saying he and his family jumped to the head of the line in getting both Chi-Vi tests and immunizations.  He would never, never, do something as egregious as this, yet millions of Americans believe that he did.  Cuomo, just frigging resign before they complete the ethics probe into your criminal actions.[xviii]  In other news, the White House and the U.S. Secret Service is denying anyone did anything to cover up son, Hunter’s mishandling of a gun back in 2018.[xix]  NO one would ever do anything like that or so they claim.  Finally, the Arizona State Attorney General Mark Brnovich sues the Biden administration over the ban on tax cuts contained within the Biden COVID-19 PORKULUS RELIEF BILL.  What’s up with that, Joe?
  85. 2021 Thursday O: POLITICAL NEWS VI- Joe Biden is facing criticism from across the board over his stumble-bom performance at his ‘press conference’ today what with reading from a binder of notes, answering pre-arranged questions, and not toppling over in deep, gape-mouthed sleep.  He has his defenders but folks, he answered NO questions about the jihadist shooter in Boulder, Colorado, did not say it was an ACT OF HATE as only ‘white people’ as we are constantly told are the ONLY HATERS in the world.  The reporters congratulated Joe Biden on ‘being such a great guy that his personal magnetism is drawing millions of illegal aliens to flood into our country.’  This man MUST GO NOW.
  86. 2021 Thursday P: FOREIGN/OVERSEAS NEWS I- The Suez Canal may be out of commission now for months seeing as how a massive container ship ran aground blocking the channel.  There are 100 ships on both sides, trying to make passage which will now be impossible.  This will lead to higher prices and less goods for the world market.  Meanwhile,  the Chi-Coms are facing boycotts by numerous companies and corporations over their imprisonment of 1-2 million Uighur Muslims in concentration camps in Xinjiang Province.  Nike is among the big names with numerous others following close behind.  Will the Chi-Coms submit to global pressure?  Most likely not.  Communists always need a good ass-whooping before they pullback from their criminal actions.  
  87. 2021 Thursday Q: OTHER NEWS- Jessica Walters- star of the old show, “Arrested Development,” has died at age 80.  Next, Rutgers University will require proof of vaccination for the Chi-Vi before one can return to classes in the fall.  Elsewhere, the CEO of Twitter- Jack “Rasputin” Dorsey- mocks yes/no questions with a poll of some sort.  Screw him.   Meanwhile, decrepit old Joe Biden says the battle over voting rights (H.R. 1 federal takeover of the voting system) ‘makes Jim Crow look like Jim Eagle.’  F**k you, Joe.  Next, Scott Hennen/ partner, Flag Family Media & Fieldstone Group reported to Newsmax Grant Stinchfield reports that all sorts of evidence showing passports from Haiti, Cuban licenses, air tickets from Colombia, and welcome wagon slips informing people where to cross, how to cross, when to cross,  and once in the United States where to go.  The country is being overrun and the ‘Biden administration’ could give a flying f**k.  All patriotic Americans arm up and head to the border.  NOW.  
  88. 2021 Thursday R: OTHER NEWS II- Representative Michael McCaul, R-TX 10th congressional district, said today that the Chi-Coms don’t fear our commander-in-chief, Joe Biden.  Meanwhile, a recent Zogby poll says that most Americans believe progressive ideas on the Cancel Culture, constant blubbering about race, gender, evil white people, and other issues are weakening the United States from within yet there are very few brave souls willing to combat it.  Friends, the world is in the fight of its lives, do we permit leftists and left-wing cultures to overrun and destroy conservative values, freedom from tyranny, and liberty for all or do we begin fighting back?  We say, fight back and destroy them.  Elsewhere, RINO Governor Brian Kemp of Georgia signed a sweeping new elections law into effect today, hoping to cover for what he did in the 2020 Presidential Election.  What difference does it make when you will sign a consent order allowing Stacey Abrams to steal the 2022 Mid-Term Elections?  Impeach and remove this POS.
  89. 2021 Thursday S: QUIP OF THE DAY FROM CHEF ITZI- Canada had better hope the U.S. does not journey down the path of socialism-communism because if it does, their nation could very well become our ‘Tibet:’ a place to send excess population as well as a place to exploit of its resources.  Mexico had better be careful, too, we might absorb them.

[i] A hodgepodge of foreign communists, many coming from the United States, France, Great Britain, and other European and Latin American countries.  Famed novelist Ernest Hemingway writes about one such individual portrayed by Gary Cooper in the film adaptation of his book, “For Whom the Bell Tolls.”

[ii] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.  Not sure if we will ever present the music of the Rising Sons or Fever Tree.

[iii] We are not sure when we will promote the music of Oakland’s Tower of Power, but you can be sure that we will do so when we begin promoting the music of funk-rock, horn-powered bands.

[iv] We will be presenting Elton John’s music at some point.

[v] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.    The album, “Yesterday and Today,” appeared on Friday, 18-November-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[vi] We began promoting the music of the famed California surf-rock band, the Turtles, beginning on Tuesday, 03-September-2013 through Friday, 13-September-2013.  The album containing the hit, “Happy Together,” was presented on Friday, 06-September-2013.  Please seek it out and add it to your collection.

[vii] We promoted the music of Spooky Tooth, Mott the Hoople, and Widowmaker- among other interconnected bands beginning on Friday, 25-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We hope you will check out this collection of great rock music.  Even the worst albums among them beats the crap out of any bull crap music one hears today.

[viii] Critics blast Joe Biden for signing 37 executive orders while doing just one monotonous news conference.

[ix] Joe Biden echoed his crazy left-wing Democrats by decrying the Senate filibuster as a relic of the Jim Crow Era.  Joe, Democrats were the party that opposed civil rights, the party of slavery, Jim Crow, red-lining, lynching, the KKK, burning crosses, firehoses and police dogs and Bull Connor busting open heads with billy clubs and night sticks.  Democrats started the Civil War, fought the Civil War, and their northern brethren, the Copperheads defended them in Congress.  Shut up about racism and Jim Crow and racial hatred, the Democratic Party personifies race hatred and white supremacy.  Enough is enough.

[xvi] Republicans are openly disputing and mocking the Biden border claims. 

[xvii] The mentally challenged old bugger- proud of his border job- still won’t commit to transparency along the southern border.

[xviii] The story is even worse than ever we believed.  Cuomo had medical professionals visit the homes of his family members and his well-connected friends and then the tests were put at the front of the line in state laboratories.  So says the Fox News Channel.

[xix] Two parts to this story- Hunter lied on an FBI background check that he did NOT use drugs just as he and his brother Beau’s wife dumped a gun into a garbage can near a school and then went back to recover it and found that it had walked.  Neither crime is good. See this story- Hunter Biden gun incident at market in 2018 led to police investigation | Fox News– as well as this one- Hunter Biden may have committed felony by reportedly stating he’s not addicted to drugs on a gun background check (washingtonexaminer.com).

  84. 2021 Wednesday J: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,577,879 confirmed cases, 52,789 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,000 confirmed cases, 439 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries- NOTE: Hawaii has not updated their stats in more than a week now.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 344,916 confirmed cases, 5,056 confirmed deaths (same as yesterday), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Mississippi: currently, they have 295,675 confirmed cases, 6,743 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 785,218 confirmed cases, 5,790 confirmed deaths, and 738,226 confirmed recoveries.  Texas Senator Ted Cruz says it’s the right thing to do ending the Coronavirus lockdowns and mask restrictions in Texas.  (Hey, Ted- we expect to see the Democrats DRIVE UP the numbers of COVID-19 cases within the Lone Star State so they can continue the shutdown). 
  85. 2021 Wednesday K:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,270.09, DOWN 121.43 points (-0.39%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,997.75, DOWN 361.04 points (-2.70%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,819.72, DOWN 50.57 points (-1.13%).  The price of GOLD is $1,709.30 per troy oz., -6.50 (-0.38%) while the price of SILVER is $26.18 per troy ounce, -0.21 (-0.78%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,168.20 per troy oz, -13.60 (-1.15%) while the price of COPPER is $4.10 per pound, -0.04 (-0.91%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,354.30 per troy oz, -14.20 (-0.60%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $61.06 per barrel, -0.22 (-0.36%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.94.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000020.   In Taiwanese dollars, one greenback equals 27.71.
  86. 2021 Wednesday L: After the House votes on H.R. 1 this evening, the so-called, “For the People Act” which will forever allow Democrats to steal elections from the White House to the collector of roadkill, they are going to flee town claiming FEAR over this bogus, ginned-up, Democratic-Socialist-manufactured looming assault on the U.S. Capitol tomorrow.   The FBI Director Chris Wray said recent intel suggests evil white militia, supremacists, and other human fecal matter are going to assault the Capitol TOMORROW.  With fences and walls up all over the place and with National Guard troops still capable of doing their duty after many received tainted food and became ill, what do Democrats fear?  An airborne drop atop the Capitol like it’s a “Red Dawn” movie?  WTF? 
  87. 2021 Wednesday M: FOR ALL THOSE WHO BELIEVED JOE BIDEN WOULD NOT MIRE US IN ANOTHER MIDDLE EASTERN WAR, well, you are STUPID.  The U.S. is now warning ‘terrorists’ in the Middle East that there will be retaliatory airstrikes on ‘terrorist’ assets in the region.  Joe Biden promised NO new wars and in less than 50 days, the military lobbyists, the Military-Industrial Complex, and fat cat politicians heavily invested in military industries, war is coming to a place near YOU.  Thank you, you stupid f**k Democrats!
  88. 2021 Wednesday N: Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3539 with a $25 million jackpot on the line: 11, 18, 22, 28, 37, and Mega 14.  Out of 102,638 winning tickets, the highest winners were two people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $18,852 apiece.  One ticket was sold at a 7/11 in Desert Hot Springs, CA 92240 while the second one was sold at a Chevron in Irvine, CA 92620.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #825 with a $123 million on the line: 21, 40, 44, 50, 55, and Powerball 16.   
  89. 2021 Wednesday O: The Democrats passed their sweeping ‘Voting Rights Act’ bulls**t bill, one that will give 16-year-olds the right to vote.  Folks, people shouldn’t be voting until they are in their thirties now, they don’t mature until well into their thirties and yet, Democrats want everyone to vote.  The House Republicans stood against, but we will say this: the Democrats genuinely believe they are making themselves untouchable, but you know, the Fates have a way of coming back around and biting disbelievers on their asses.  It’s going to be fun watching the Dems toppled by their own stupidity.  Do you think YOUNG people want fossils like Nancy Pelosi, Steny Hoyer, James Clyburn, Chuck Schumer, and other senile old, mummified idiots calling the shots?  You better think again…
  90. 2022 Thursday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

Bernie Sanders confirms he is going to run for president of the United States a second time.  Meanwhile, President Trump announces plans to elevate former Acting U.S. Attorney General Matthew Whitaker as deputy head of the U.S. Department of Justice.  Next, President Trump signs the order to create the U.S. Space Force, the newest branch of government that will prepare to defend the nation’s interests in the realm of space.
  55. 2020 Wednesday: Information appears that proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that multi-billionaire Michael “Mini-Mike” Bloomberg is indeed doing everything imaginable to buy the Democratic Party’s 2020 presidential nomination.  As of today, he has spent more than $400 million on network and cable TV channels as well as on radio.  What he has spent on Internet advertising is so far unknown.  Tonight, six candidates face off in the Democratic 2020 Primary Debate on NBC: Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar, and former Mayor Bloomberg.  Absent are billionaire Tom Steyer and of course, Tulsi Gabbard, whom the Democrats do NOT want.  Meanwhile, in Chicago, former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich gives a news conference on the porch of his home.  His sentence commuted to time served the day before by President Donald J. Trump, he proclaims himself a “Trump-o-Crat” and pledges to work to help others who have been unjustly punished by the Comey-led FBI.  Good for you, Mr. Governor, good for you.  Finally, President Donald Trump visits the city of Bakersfield, home of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day.
  56. 2021 Friday: Day 31 of the Biden Regime: first of all- due to growing pushback on both sides of the aisle- Joe Biden acknowledges the $15 per hour minimum wage hike may not happen anytime soon.   Next, the House Democrats demonstrate how much they hate President Donald J. Trump by their creation of a new bill- the “No Glory for Hate Act”- which will prohibit twice-impeached presidents from being celebrated, buried in Arlington National Cemetery, or having monuments and roads and the like named after them.  Wow.  Elsewhere, as the investigators investigate the Capitol Hill police officers, six of them are suspended with pay while another 35 are being scrutinized for having affiliations to President Donald J. Trump.  Kool-Aid-guzzling U.S. Army General Russell L. Honoré Ret. And chief inquisitor of the Antifa-infiltrated- and- lead Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021, is digging posthaste to uncover the evildoers behind the appalling assault on Capitol Hill, only he’s looking at those with MAGA sympathies and not at the real instigators and proponents of what happened on the dreary day when Antifa and Black Lives Matter stormed the Capitol. 
  57. 2021 Friday A: Climate ‘czar’ John F. Kerry vows tough stance on all climate evildoers in the U.S. as the United States rejoins the Paris Climate Accord, yet another selling out of the United States to globalists.   Meanwhile, in the ‘post-COVID-19 world,’ the TSA announces plans to hire another 6,000 agents so the liberals can increase the numbers of their secret police at all airports across the nation.  Man, that Chi-Vi is permitting our government to skip down the totalitarian path.  Elsewhere, in the Free World of Florida, Governor Ron DeSantis, Republican, proposes sweeping election reforms in his state.   Finally, the Minneapolis Police Department are beefing up security both at the courthouse and around the city as the Derek Chauvin trial looms on the horizon. 
  58. 2021 Friday B: Boko Haram thugs in Niger kidnap 27 students from a boarding school and carry them off into the jungle.  The SOBS must be short on wives, again.  Next, the Kremlin warns the West to pull back from sanctions related to Alexei Navalny’s prison sentence, ‘or else.’  Speaking of thugs, the ‘paradise of Iran’ demands the U.S. repeal and remove ALL sanctions on their country imposed by President Donald J. Trump.  Don’t worry, grand ayatollah, the U.S. is going to rejoin the flawed nuclear deal the Obama-Biden administration participated in with your country.  Speaking of this deal, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blasts the Biden-Harris administration for reentering this deal.  Under President Trump, the Iranians were on their knees begging for mercy.  Now, it’s back to business as usual. 
  59. 2021 Friday C: Meanwhile, the U.S. State Department imposes travel sanctions on 43 Belorussian officials and bigwigs over the actions of their corrupt government.  The Biden administration loves Iran but wants to punish Russia and Belorussia.  WTF?  Next, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is attempting to rally ‘quad democracies’ to pushback against a belligerent communist China.  Why?  The Biden Family and many members of his administration LOVE the Chi-Coms.  Must be just for show.
  60. 2021 Friday D: RINO Senator Jon Thune says the ‘GOP is engaging in ‘cancel culture’ by going after the losers who voted to impeach President Donald J. Trump as well as the RINO senators who voted to convict President Donald J. Trump.’  Will these losers ever learn their flipping lessons?  It appears not.  The American people will have to show them.  Meanwhile, the U.S. begins admitting the first batch of illegal aliens begging for asylum into the country even though south Texas mayors are begging the federal government not to do this because they have no support with which, they can provide them.  Let ‘em freeze.   Elsewhere, the feds are pushing to kick the National Rifle Association’s top lawyer off the bankruptcy case.   Finally, good citizens are working alongside police in Oakland’s Chinatown to catch the thug or thugs who have been attacking Chinese citizens.  We still suspect when the culprit is caught, it will be another minority.  Speaking of the Chinese, Great Britain is welcoming in thousands of Hong Kong’s citizens who are escaping the crackdown by the thugs in Beijing.  In the next five years, London could welcome in as many as 300,000 people along with their dependents.
  61. 2021 Friday E: ERCOT says the catastrophic collapse of the power grid in Texas which led to massive blackouts would have occurred anyway even without the severe weather storm.  Still, the operators have gotten the power system up-and-running.  What the heck has happened to nuclear energy?  It’s safe, dependable, cheap, and lasts forever.  All we need do is to find a way to recycle used nuclear fuel so we can reuse it.   Elsewhere, Dolly Parton nixes the idea of putting a statue dedicated to her in the Tennessee State Capitol Building.  Who would want such an honor in this world of left-wing pansy cancel culture?  Revered today, torn down and defaced tomorrow.  Finally, doctors at Johns Hopkins University says, ‘herd immunity for the Chi-Com Flu can be achieved by April 2021.’
  62. 2021 Friday F: We learn that the Wuhan Institute of Virology has received U.S. money to study dangerous diseases including the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Speaking of the Chinese Virus, millions of vaccines for this lab-engineered malady continue to linger in freezer facilities across the country.  Joe Biden says ‘NO such vaccine existed when he came into office’ but we know that a man who asks his wife, ‘where we’re at’ every day he awakens in the White House residence does not know very much, including that he and his wife received their vaccines ahead of his taking the oath of office.  Speaking of the Chi-Com pandemic, the Baby Evita- aka AOC, aka Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Sandy Cortez (birth name) is jumping on the anti-Andrew “Killer” Cuomo bandwagon and much like NYC Mayor Bill Di Blasio, driving the dagger into the beleaguered Empire State governor.   Wow.  Just like piranha fish.  
  63. 2021 Friday G: The American Civil Liberties Union asks SCOTUS to declare all-male draft ‘unconstitutional.’  Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian files for divorce from entertainment mogul Kanye West.  Next, a day after its passage, a federal court strikes down South Carolina’s abortion bill, one that prohibits abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected.  The bill is designed to prohibit abortion chop shops such as Planned Parenthood from operating in minority communities where they murder mostly minority unborn children, sell the fetal body parts to scientists, Satanists, and other sick f**ks, and then donate money back to the Democratic Socialist Party of the United States.  WTF?  Meanwhile, Representative Mark Green says, ‘the Biden immigration plan is pretty flipping crazy.’  Amen.  Illegal alien hunting licenses, anyone?  Next, Representative Blaine Luetkemeyer, R-MO., to Newsmax TV: “Follow the Trump template to restore the economy.”   Finally, following Nikki Haley’s failed attempt to meet with President Donald J. Trump at Mar-A-Lago after BLASTING the 45th president and the man who made her ambassador to the United Nations, Senator Lindsey Graham has embarked on a peace mission to see the president.  Interesting Note- Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has ordered all flags to fly at half-mast for Rush Limbaugh.
  64. 2021 Friday H: Here are the numbers for the COVID-19 global pandemic, the planet first: 109,901,931 confirmed cases, +288,143, 2,430,096, confirmed deaths, +8,615, and 61,879,542 confirmed recoveries, +203,850.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 28,100,922 confirmed cases, up 70,592 from yesterday’s reporting, 495,180 confirmed deaths, UP 2,253, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries same as it’s been since ‘Pro-China Joe’ moved into the White House.  NOTE- in the White House 31 DAYS, apparently the U.S. will NO longer report the number of recoveries.  Shame on you, Chi-Com Joe.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 168,862 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Fellow Americans, JOE BIDEN LIED AND PEOPLE HAVE DIED.
  65. 2021 Friday I: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,514,246 confirmed cases, 48,411 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,460 confirmed cases, 428 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 335,340 confirmed cases, 4,868 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the United States: South Carolina- currently, they have 497,937 confirmed cases, 8,213 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 741,934 confirmed cases, 5,509 confirmed deaths, and 688,184 confirmed recoveries.     
  66. 2021 Friday J: For a laugh, let’s look at the Chi-Coms’ numbers- they say they have 89,816 cases, +10 from last week, 4,636 confirmed deaths (same as two weeks ago), and 84,696 confirmed recoveries, +46 from last week.  This, of course, is ALL BULLS**T.  When we had contacts in Hong Kong, they said ‘times the numbers by 100, 150, or 200 times and you would get a somewhat closer picture.’  Maggot-eating scum.   NOTE- communists lie.  They ALWAYS LIE.  They lie about everything.  They cover up dastardly deeds like that POS moronic New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo and when threatened with exposure, they begin making threats.  Scumbags, all of them scumbags.
  67. 2021 Friday K:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,494.32, UP 0.98 points (+0.003%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,874.46, UP 9.11 points (+0.066%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,906.71, DOWN 7.26 points (-0.19%).  Although stocks are jumping up and down, we still anticipate the collapse of the U.S. economy as long as (1) businesses don’t reopen in BLUE states; (2) Joe Biden allows the Third World to flood into the United States; (3) economic idiots are running the show in the ‘Biden administration;’ and (4) fossil fuel production is collapsing thanks to Green New Deal policies being implemented by the frigging Democratic-Socialists.
  68. 2021 Friday J: The price of GOLD is $1,783.10 per troy oz., +5.70 (+0.32%) while the price of SILVER is $27.37 per troy ounce, +0.12 (+0.43%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,282.20 per troy oz, -10.90 (-0.84%) while the price of COPPER is $4.07 per pound, -0.01 (-0.17%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,379.80 per troy oz, +21.00 (+0.89%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $59.01 per barrel, -0.23 (-0.39%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros while one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.  One-dollar U.S. = 0.000018 Bitcoin.  Next, one U.S. greenback = 73.95 Russian rubles.  In contrast, one Washington dollar equals 3.75 Saudi Riyal.  Stay tuned for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1635 with a $20 million pot up for grabs.  Here are the numbers- 27, 32, 47, 50, 53, and Mega 04.  Out of 52,450 winning tickets, the highest winners were 36 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $421 apiece.

Friday, February 19, 2021, Today in History Blog Post:   

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

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


Saturday, February 19, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We promoted the music of the great California rock band, Spirit- and the music of its members- beginning on Monday, 18-June-2012 through Friday, 10-August-2012.  We hope you will seek this band out and add it to your growing collection of top-quality rock music. This included the music of Jo Jo Gunne.

[ii] Not sure when we present this Canadian rock band, Loverboy, but we sure as heck hope we do sometime within the next decade because- say what you will about them- they are as exciting today as they were back in the 1980s.  Please remain vigilant for the day that we do.

[iii] Not exactly sure when we will begin promoting the music of Black Sabbath but when we do we will definitely follow them with AC/DC, the wild and wooly and definitely demonic Australian rock band.

[iv] We expect to do the music of Jethro Tull, Wild Turkey, Ian Anderson, and Paris sometime in the next 5-6 years.  We hope you will still be with us.

[v] We began promoting the music of not only Traffic but also the Spencer Davis Group, Steve Winwood, Chris Wood, Jim Capaldi, and Dave Mason.  The presentation commenced on Monday, 30-November-2015 through Sunday, 20-March-2016.  This offering also included Blind Faith.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.

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

[vii] We began celebrating the music of Wishbone Ash beginning on Sunday, October 28, 2018 and continued it through Sunday, January 06, 2019.  From there, we covered the music of Martin Turner’s Wishbone Ash beginning on January 07, 2019 through Sunday, January 13, 2019.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection of the BEST rock-and-roll music.  You will be glad you did.

[viii] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  On Tuesday, 18-January-2011, we promoted the album, “Rumours.”  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates.  We thank you. 

[ix] We look forward to sharing the music of AC/DC sometime within the next five years.  Remain vigilant for the day when we do.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

24. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, JANUARY 24, 2022

2019 Thursday: The Trump administration recognizes Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó as the legitimate president of that troubled South American country. This of course drives the Venezuelans amok as they fight to quell ongoing civil disturbances over their attempted-fixed presidential elections.

  61. 2021 Sunday: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 99,006,885 confirmed cases, +718,738, 2,125,373, confirmed deaths, +15,615, and 54,608,134 confirmed recoveries, +352,720.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 25,227,940 confirmed cases, up 118,668 from yesterday’s reporting, 421,330 confirmed deaths, UP 2,272, and 10,987,457 confirmed recoveries, UP 13,290.  IF that leaning tower of drool, ‘President’ Joe Biden is going to save the country, he needs to save it NOW, ASAP, by getting the Trump vaccine to the people and ordering an immediate reopening of ALL businesses.
  62. 2021 Sunday A: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,163,830 confirmed cases, 36,816 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases (Hawaii has not updated their case numbers in more than a week), 336 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 304,107 confirmed cases, 4,182 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Wyoming: currently, they have 50,898 confirmed cases, 571 confirmed deaths, and 48,571 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 593,961 confirmed cases, 4,341 confirmed deaths, and 512,702 confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, Texas rolls out 100,000 Chi-Vi vaccine doses in a single day making BLUE states look like the losers they are.  Speaking of Blue States, Governor Gavin Newsom of California is being ripped apart for buying PPE from the Chi-Coms directly instead of American manufacturers.  Once again, is another direct tie between Democrats and their Chi-Com masters in Beijing.
  63. 2021 Sunday B: We learn today that Instagram is FORCING ALL USERS to ‘sign up’ for the White House account to make it look like ‘President’ Joe Biden- the usurper in chief- has a massive following when in fact, he has NO one.  Hence why many chef-authors and support staff at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day have shuttered their Instagram accounts among other pro-Chi-Com social media sites.  F**k them.  Speaking of scurrilous social media scumbags, Facebook closes Young Patriots accounts.  We already dumped Facebook and it’s amazing how much they cried when they did.  We guess they enjoy exercising the power and determining whether one is ‘permitted’ on their site or is not.  F**k them, too.
  64. 2021 Sunday C: Today we have both NFL Championship games- first, the NFC Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 30 (13-5) @ Green Bay Packers, 32 (14-3) and then the AFC Championship- Buffalo Bills, 17 (15-3) @ Kansas City Chiefs, 22 (15-2).  Out of 25 chef-authors here at the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day, aka AICPENDBLOG.COM, 17 say it’s going to be a ‘State Farm Super Bowl’ between Green Bay and Aaron Rodgers and Kansas City and Patrick Mahomes while the others don’t.  We shall see.    Results for the first game: Tampa Bay Buccaneers 31, Green Bay Packers, 26. NO STATE FARM SUPER BOWL this time around.  Eight of our colleagues are at 50-percent in their picks.  We shall see, again.   Here are the results for the second matchup and we must say, it was a brutal game.  Some of the Buffalo Bills’ offensive line behaved like Capitol Hill police officers did on January 06, stepping aside and almost waving the Chiefs in to sack or to commit some questionable hits on Josh Allen, QB of the Bills.    Final score: Chiefs, 38, Bills 24.  Next week, the Pro-Bowl then on February 07, 2021- Kansas City Chiefs @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers for Super Bowl LV.
  65. 2021 Sunday D: The Michigan GOP censures Rep. Fred Upton, one of theirs who voted for impeachment in the U.S. House of Representatives.  Payback is coming to all these losers.  Likewise, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey says he’s dropping a planned U.S. Senate run in 2022 because the Arizona GOP has censured him for handing the 2020 Presidential Election over to the Democrats and their standard-bearer, ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden. Next, Arizona GOP leader Dr. Kelli Ward wins re-election as the chair of the GOP in that state for another two years.  Speaking of the U.S. Senate and of ‘Pro-China Joe,’ Arkansas Republican Senator Tom Cotton says, ‘the Chi-Coms are blackmailing the ‘46th president’ with sanctions.   Elsewhere, the FBI rescues 33 kidnapped children from human traffickers and predators in the L.A. area.  God bless you!
  66. 2021 Sunday E: Chef Lilah in Hawaii says the Hawaii GOP is receiving loads of criticism over the party saying that “Q supporters” in Washington, D.C., are patriots, believing in what they believe.  She says, ‘that in every so-called conspiracy theory, an element of truth exists as otherwise it would not gain strength.’  She also says, ‘that Democrats are desperate to deflect blame from their leadership in the House telling Capitol Hill police officers to step aside and allow the Antifa-interlaced protesters easy entry into the Capitol Building on January 6.’  Look, Nancy Pelosi is out there accusing President Donald J. Trump of homicide for the people who lost their lives in the left-wing mob riots when she is the one who should shut up and lawyer up.  When the truth hits, no one will acquit Speaker Pelosi.  Finally, Chef Lilah says, ‘as for QAnon, why wouldn’t people believe this when they live in a country where millions of their fellow citizens- particularly minorities- have been aborted, a country in which fetal body parts are harvested and sold, a country in which, perversion, sexual deviancy, engineered racism, and the elimination of history, both good and bad, is at risk of being destroyed?’  No, she concludes by saying, ‘QAnon is not difficult to believe; no, it’s difficult to disbelieve when one closely examines what the left is doing to our country and why, the damage being caused, none of which is moral or Christian.’  God bless you, Chef Lilly!
  67. 2022 Monday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On March 15, 2008, Sandy Denny’s label released a much more concise package from the “Live at the BBC” Box Set that came out last year, called “The Best of the BBC Recordings.”  This one contained 16 tracks so fans who had much of her earlier BBC recordings could latch onto these for a lesser price than the big box or the shorter effort released shortly thereafter the expensive box.  We are not saying that the box set is not worth it because it most assuredly is, but this is also a good addition because you get some tunes you had no clue ever existed.  We hope you will visit Amazon.com, Discogs, AllMusic, eBay, or any other place you shop for the absolute best in music and consider making it a part of your listening day- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

Trump makes a Christmas visit to a U.S. military base in Iraq where he receives an extremely warm welcome from U.S. servicemen-and-women.   The Fake News Media points out that this is ‘his first trip to a war zone since coming to office two years ago.’  Wah, wah, wah.  Meanwhile, President Trump says the government shutdown could continue quite a while due to the Democratic Party’s intransigence in refusing to fund the BORDER WALL separating the United States from chaos, anarchy, and violence.
  52. 2019 Friday: As heavy fighting continues to rage across Syria, heavy bombing by Syrian government troops forces hospitals and health clinics in Idlib to close their doors and go underground.   Meanwhile, thanks to rising tensions in the Gulf of Oman, the Japanese government announces it will send a naval destroyer to protect shipments of oil.   Elsewhere, Muslims in India continue running amok over the ‘anti-Muslim citizenship law.’  Look, when the Muslims learn how to behave like everyone else, such laws will not be necessary.
  53. 2020 Saturday: A federal judge delays sentencing in the case of former FBI lawyer, Kevin Clinesmith who lied in the Trump-Russia Collusion Hoax the Democrats concocted to eliminate Mr. Trump.  We suspect the court is awaiting the outcome of the January 5 Electoral College vote in the U.S. House of Representatives.  Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms are poised to leapfrog the U.S. to become the lone global superpower by 2028.  Elsewhere, federal, state, and local law enforcement continues to search for the culprits behind the Christmas Day RV explosion in downtown Nashville, Tennessee.  If they have suspects in mind, they are remaining mum for the time being.
  54. 2020 Saturday A: The Pennsylvania lawmakers who have met with President Donald J. Trump say the ‘president is resolved in contesting the 2020 Election results.’  Meanwhile, U.S. officials deny they evacuated the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad’s Green Zone over threats of attack.  Elsewhere, Japan urges ‘Pro-China Joe” Biden to remain strong on defending Taiwan, calling it a ‘red line’ the Chi-Coms should not cross.  IF Biden does become president, we expect the Chi-Coms will move against FREE China within six months.
  55. 2020 Saturday B: The CARES Act unemployment benefits expire today.  Meanwhile, the COVID-19 Relief Bill arrives at Mar-a-Lago in Florida for the president’s signature.  Elsewhere, we learn that former British double agent George Blake dies in Moscow at age 98 on this date.  Finally, the mayor of Miami, Florida, is doing his best to woo New York Wall Street banks to relocate to his state where there are no income taxes and freedom to operate.  That would be amazing.
  56. 2020 Saturday C: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox, communist China’s gift to the world and a boon for Democrats who want to exercise their fascist skills in locking down people’s lives like California’s duplicitous closet pansy Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 80,1229,602 confirmed cases, +463,077, 1,755,940, confirmed deaths, +70,225, and 45,338,147 confirmed recoveries, +405,622.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 19,103,992 confirmed cases, UP 164,718 from yesterday’s reporting, 335,265 confirmed deaths, UP 1,663, and 8,320,845 confirmed recoveries, UP 16,541.
  57. 2020 Saturday D: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 2,072,665 confirmed cases, 23,983 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 20,888 confirmed cases, 288 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 237,689 confirmed cases, 3,268 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state- Arizona. Currently, they have 393,041 confirmed cases, 8,424 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Ducey.  Let’s look at Israel’s stats now that Mo is living there: 398,664 confirmed cases, 3,210 confirmed deaths, and 359,816 confirmed recoveries.
  58. 2020 Saturday E: We have three NFL games today: (2) Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 47 (10-5) @ Detroit Lions, 7 (5-10) Saturday 10:00 A.M.  Next, (3) San Francisco 49ers, 20 (6-9) @ Arizona Cardinals, 12 (8-7) Saturday 1:30 P.M.  Tonight’s game: (4) Miami Dolphins, 26 (10-5) @ Las Vegas Raiders, 25 (7-8) Saturday 5:15 P.M.  In addition to this, we will also have results for tonight’s Super Lotto and Powerball draws.  Here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3520 with a jackpot of $18 million up for grabs: 04, 06, 16, 19, 32, and Mega 02.  Out of 97,179 winning tickets, one person won the jackpot of $18,000,000.  The jackpot ticket was bought at the Café Paradise in San Jose, CA, 95111.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #806: 10, 24, 27, 35, 53, and Powerball 18.  Out of 102,257 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $114,230.
  59. 2020 Saturday:  Here is where we were, the day after Christmas and as you know, neither the Democratic Party OR their bosses in the Chinese Communist Party ever sleep so please stay tuned to see what the scum is up to today.  We support President Donald J. Trump, Trump won the election, NOT Beijing Biden!
  60. 2021 Sunday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album delivered by Fairport Convention was yet another ‘blast from the past,’ culled by band member, Dave Pegg: “The Airing Cupboard Tapes 71-74” (08-16-2002), an album of live music from 1990.  The lineups feature Sandy Denny (vocals, guitar), Richard Thompson (lead guitars), Simon Nichol (guitars, vocals), Dave Pegg (basses, mandolins, vocals), Dave Swarbrick (fiddle, mandolins, vocals, and viola), and Dave Mattacks (drums and percussion).  It is amazing- and extremely enjoyable- to envision each of these performances with your mind and ears.  We love it, we know you will love it, too, and you can find it at almost every site specializing in classic rock/folk rock music such as Amazon, Discogs, AllMusic, eBay, you name it, it’s available.  We hope you do check it out as we believe you will love this band as much as we do.  Enjoy.
