Trump.  Elsewhere, the Palestinians are crying and screaming that they are ‘being stabbed in the back.  Oh, boohoo.  STFU you worthless scumbags- you’ve had your chances, more than any other country ever, to make peace.  When ALL Arab nations sign onto this deal, you will have a choice: make peace with Israel or become the pariah of the world, forever shunned, dismissed, and driven away.   
  68. 2020 Tuesday A: As wildfires rage out of control along the West Coast, at least 36 people in California alone are dead because of the conflagrations.  All of this is easily preventable if only proper forest management would move to the fore once again.  IF (and this is a big IF) the environmentalists and their Democratic Party stooges GENUINELY loved wildlife, particularly endangered species, would it not make more sense to protect their habitats by proper management coupled with an emphasis on protecting the flora and the fauna?  It is all so unnecessary the level of destruction occurring in our forests that we hope in 2022, the people of California, Oregon, and elsewhere where dimwits rule remember everything these people have done and vote them out en mass!  Enough is enough!
  69. 2020 Tuesday B: During a speech, Democratic vice-presidential nominee Kamala Harris lets it slip that if she and “Pro-China Joe” Biden are elected, it will be a “Harris administration.”  Folks, everyone knows this so don’t act shocked.  Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, California, the county doubles the reward for information leading to the POS shooter who attacked two L.A. Sheriff’s deputies as they sat in their patrol car in Compton, California, from $100,000 to $200,000 and the sheriff encourages race-baiter Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James to put up the same amount; in effect, telling him to put his money where his mouth is.  So far, we’ve heard nothing from “King James” nor did we believe we would.  He’s a punk.  Finally, the city of Louisville, Kentucky, settles on $12 million to the family of Breonna Taylor.  She is the woman who died in a crossfire of lead when police officers stormed into her and her boyfriend’s apartment with a NO-KNOCK WARRANT and then when the boyfriend opened up, she died in a fusillade of lead.   
  70. 2020 Tuesday C: Following the signing of the peace accord at the White House earlier in the day, Palestinians begin firing rockets into neighboring Israel, wounding some citizens as they went about their daily lives.  The Palestinians are a bunch of sniveling pigs.  Stop!  Elsewhere, in Iraq, rockets begin landing near the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad.  This clearly is the work of the bottom-feeder Iranian Revolutionary Guard.  We would hope the Trump administration sinks both their navy and takes out the oil refineries leaving them even more Third World than they now are.  What is clear is that the new peace process in the Middle East is one that has a greater chance of succeeding and sources inform us that Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, possibly Yemen, Algeria, and perhaps Qatar might join in the process.  Elsewhere, in response to the potential Iranian threat to attack a U.S. ambassador, President Trump warns the mullahs that they will pay a price ONE-THOUSAND TIMES WORSE than anything they might do.  Could we see Tehran go up in a mushroom cloud?
  71. 2020 Tuesday D: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 29,386,463 confirmed cases, UP by 271,986 cases, 930,589 confirmed deaths, UP by 4,993 deaths, and 19,943,453 confirmed recoveries, UP by 270,382 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 6,665,316 confirmed cases, UP by 28,896 new cases, 198,085 confirmed deaths, UP by 718 new deaths, and 3,612,064 confirmed recoveries, UP by 31,279 new recoveries.  We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.  It is also clear that misreporting the news has Americans believing at least 30 million Americans- OR MORE- have died from Xi Jinping’s Chi-Com Flu which is not true which was said a week ago, so it shows misinformation is doing its job among the gullible and ill-informed citizenry.
  72. 2020 Tuesday E: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 768,334 confirmed cases, 14,477 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 10,887 confirmed cases, 99 confirmed deaths, and 3,693 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 83,962 confirmed cases, 2,096 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 450,425 confirmed number of cases, 32,655 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.   The governor of New York, the drooling moron Andrew Cuomo continues trying to blame President Donald J. Trump for all the deaths when he is the one who sent Bat Flu-infected people into rest homes where the most vulnerable people are, uh, we mean, were.  Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there.  Here they are: 162,273 confirmed cases, 1,141 confirmed deaths, and 120,443 confirmed recoveries.  Watch out for the rockets, Mo!

[xiv]    Let us look at one other Delaware: $2.998.  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- Liechtenstein: $6.865 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,764,701,405,049 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xvi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Luxembourg, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Brazil with $258 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  80. 2021 Wednesday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, has a new bill with which to deny U.S. recognition of the Taliban ‘government’ in Afghanistan.  His GOP colleagues have sent a letter to U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken demanding the U.S. State Department slap a designation of ‘foreign terror group’ atop the Taliban which they are.  Senator Joni Ernst, R-IA, says that the ‘Taliban 2.0 is the same terror group it has always been.’
  81. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 174 for the ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the debacle down along the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 81 since her singular visit anywhere in the vicinity of the border.  What a disaster.  
  82. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– North Korean continues demonstrating that they’re ‘still with us’ by test-firing cruise missiles into waters near Japan and South Korea.  When President Donald J. Trump was in office, relations between the so-called ‘hermit kingdom’ and the United States were relatively cordial whereas now, the North Koreans are ramping up their activities.
  83. 2021 Wednesday I: Covid-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The U.S. Department of Defense and Health and the Department of Human Services is planning on buying 1.4 million doses of Regeneron.  In other (BOGUS) news we heard today, ‘immigrants (i.e., ILLEGAL) will reportedly have to show ‘proof of Chi-Vi vaccination before swarming across the U.S.-Mexico border.’  Sure, right- how is this going to work?  Next, as the Biden regime continues pushing the idea of Chi-Vi booster shots atop 2-3 immunizations for the Wuhan Virus, Rep. James Comer, R-KY 1st congressional district, says that MORE info regarding the need for such ‘boosters’ must be handed over by the Biden regime’s leaders.
  84. 2021 Wednesday J: Covid-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-And Authoritarianism News– As demands from the illegitimate regime in the White House grow for everyone to get vaccinated with the Chi-Vi vaccines, calls for ‘religious exemptions’ are on the increase.  We suspect that the Christian Scientist and Jehovah’s Witnesses’ churches are going to increase membership.
  85. 2021 Wednesday K: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $44.77 (2) AstraZeneca $56.45 (3) Johnson & Johnson $165.42 (4) BioNTech $355.25 (5) Moderna $434.46.  Follow the money, folks, follow the money.  All this talk of booster shots on top of the vaccines is crazy what with more and more reports about problems caused by the vaccines continue to proliferate.  IF you seek the truth, you must watch One America News and Newsmax.  The vaccines are causing far more problems than are reported in the mainstream media, which is not right, especially when European nations now are backing away from any discussion of booster shots.  The only reason the talk of booster shots is intensifying is because the Deep State and the Democrats are getting rich off them.  Look at that pig, Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci- this guy is growing wealthy off the suffering of the American people.
  86. 2021 Wednesday L: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $84.87 (2) General Dynamics: $198.48 (3) Boeing: $214.22 (4) Lockheed Martin: $345.07 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $355.74.  This is how the Deep State and elected members of Congress grow rich, investing in companies in which they send billions of dollars.  This is not only illegal but highly immoral.
  87. 2021 Wednesday M: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Ansell Ltd.: $36.30 (2) DuPont: $70.01 (3) Honeywell: $221.69 (4) 3M: $184.19 (5) Teijen: $1,646.00.  These stocks are going to take off like rockets as the Deep State and elected members of Congress- and their staffers- continue investing in these firms either through themselves or via straw persons such as, uh, well, like Hunter Biden.
  88. 2021 Wednesday N: Artificial (Fake) Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Beyond Meat: $110.81 (2) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $63.88 (3) Maple Leaf Foods Inc./Tofurkey: $27.11.  Like it or not, this is the next push as the Green New Deal continues becoming a part of our lives whether we want it to be or we don’t.  All one need do is to watch the movie, “Soylent Green” starring Edward G. Robinson and Charlton Heston.  Popular culture has a way of becoming reality if one lives long enough.
  89. 2021 Wednesday O: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden- ever a man of science- says that ‘human activity is the root cause of extreme weather.’  Next, Joe Biden has demanded that Senators Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, and Kyrsten Sinema, D-AZ, come to the White House so he can apply pressure on them to vote for his bogus $3.5 trillion ‘infrastructure bill.’
  90. 2021 Wednesday P: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– A new McLaughlin poll says that ‘Joe Biden’s approval numbers have cratered, the American people are concerned, and that NO one likes “Kooky Kamala” Harris.  (Note- my colleagues in California tell me that Kamala Harris is detested by almost everyone in the state and the only good thing about her serving in the regime is that it gets her out of their state.  Chef Itzi).
  91. 2021 Wednesday Q: Joe Biden Regime News I– It would appear the Biden regime is tossing Saudi Arabia to the wolves what with the withdrawal of its top anti-missile defense systems in the country.  What the hell is going on here?  In other regime-related news, one of the regime’s favorites and purported candidate for U.S. ambassador to Ukraine- Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman- says if ‘what we hear about Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Mark A. (Asshole) Milley is true, he must go.’  What has happened to the U.S. military?  Both of these men are absolute disgraces. [xvii].  Next, the U.S. Army says that soldiers refusing to get the ‘VID vaccinations may be forced out of the Army with less-than-honorable discharges.’  Yet, the U.S. Postal Service and elected members of Congress and their staffers do NOT have to undergo vaccination.  WTF!
  92. 2021 Wednesday R: Joe Biden Regime News II– Something very strange occurred today when the Biden regime trotted out an enfeebled old Joe Biden to hold a Zoom conference with Prime Minister Scott Morrison of Australia and Prime Minister Boris “BoJo” Johnson of England in which, the three leaders announced a new triumvirate of sorts with which to help the Aussies obtain nuclear-powered submarines.  Although the Chi-Coms were not mentioned, they acted as though this new alignment of the BIG THREE nations would counter Beijing’s ambitions in the region.  Most observers, however, believe the Brits and the Aussies came to senile Joe Biden’s aid so as to deflect all the negative press coverage it has been getting.  Even more embarrassing is that slobbering Joe could not even pull the name of the Australian leader out of his crumbling mind.  This was embarrassing and it also demonstrated that both Boris Johnson and Scott Morrison are in the tank for the Biden regime.  This is disgraceful and besides- we also believe the three countries are in the tank with the Chi-Coms, sort of a fait accompli.
  93. 2021 Wednesday S: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– Pope Francis- ever a creature of the left- says that ‘yes, abortion is murder but urges U.S. Roman Catholic bishops NOT to be political by denying so-called ‘Catholic politicians’ Holy Communion.  Folks, is the Pope on the Pro-Death money-go-round, too?  Like BIG PHARMA/vaccine manufacturers, Planned Parenthood and other infanticide-promoting organizations bestow BILLIONS of dollars upon left-wing and unscrupulous politicians and others.  It is akin to one selling their soul to Satan.
  94. 2021 Wednesday T: Moron News I– After little Sandy “The Fly” Cortez attended the $30,000 per plate Met Gala wearing a donated $35,000 designer dress with ‘tax the rich’ stenciled on the back of it, conservative groups are demanding an ethics investigation into perhaps the stupidest member of the U.S. House of Representatives which is indeed saying a lot.  We doubt any ethics investigation will go anywhere.  Look at Ilhan Omar, that woman married her brother to defraud U.S. immigration authorities and she is doing A-Okay.
  95. 2021 Wednesday U: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3595 what with a $17 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 01, 05, 07, 28, 45, and Mega 08.  Out of 108,351 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $17,854 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at (1) Dorose Liquor in Chatsworth, CA 91311 and (2) 7-Eleven in Vacaville, CA 95688. Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #885 with a jackpot of $432 million up for grabs: 01, 04, 18, 46, 62, and Power 25.  Out of 93,905 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers for $2,581,768.  The winning ticket was sold at the General Store in Compton, California 90222.
  96. 2021 Wednesday V: The Wrap-Up– As someone who lives in Hawaii, I do not have an opinion on the recall election in California.  However, my colleagues living there say that it may have been a good thing if the Republican National Committee had dumped millions of dollars in the state to wage 24/7 ads blasting what they say is the ‘worst governor in the nation.’  Instead, it became a personality battle between Larry Elder and Governor Gavin Newsom, a battle that could not be won no matter how likable Mr. Elder is and how bad Governor Newsom is.  This is the Democrat Party’s secret weapon- Republican ambivalence.  They look at California and say, “We can’t win there,” and thus they send no money to help turn the tide.  The Republicans say, ‘move forward, we will return next year.’  No, GOP, you won’t.  The numbers of illegals flooding the state and the corruption surrounding the election system there is going to prevent that from occurring just as it will help empower Democrats to win the remaining few House seats currently held by Republicans.  You had your chance, and you blew it, all because the GOP itself is corrupt and unwilling to fight fire with fire.  My colleagues said the proof of election fraud is in the pudding: in less than an hour after the polls closed, the results were in. Amazing how that happens, and Governor Newsom won by Kim Jong Un and Fidel Castro numbers.  California is lost forever.
  97. 2022 Thursday: Observation of the Day- Friends, we wish that Rush Limbaugh were still with us because he did predict that the Dems would discover a way by which, they could make elections meaningless and boy was he right.  They have tried to topple our system of elections through corrupting them just as they have by flooding the country with loads of illegal aliens.  The tricky thing about the illegal aliens is that many of them still cling to Christianity, a religion the Democrats despise and detest.  They also want them to get abortions- plenty of them- something your average illegal does not seek because of love of children.  Add to that the fact that the leftists are blatant socialists and have mobs of storm-troopers in the street and one can understand WHY the illegals are drifting more and more to the right and are eagerly registering as Republicans even though- technically- if we abide by the law- they cannot.  However, if it’s good enough for the Dems then it’s good enough for us.  I think it’s going to be  good election cycle.  The question is, can we maintain the wins or will we need to outlaw the Democratic Party?  I say, ‘OUTLAW THEM.’  Chef James “Jimmy” Hall.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0953 a 7” x 5” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Lone Rose.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclee, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from Cheap Trick is the one that pushed them across the finish line as far as being superstars.  On October 08, 1978, Cheap Trick released their first live album, “Live at Budokan.”  The band had become superstars in Japan what with “I Want You to Want Me” and the version on this album, hyped-up made-for-AM-radio single monopolized the airwaves for weeks and much like the tune, “Surrender,” remains a radio favorite to this day.  This is perhaps one of the all-time best live albums to come out of the 1970’s and would be up there with “Frampton Comes Alive” as a mega-seller.  Once again, the lineup is the same quartet of Rick Nielsen (guitars, backing vocals), Robin Zander (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Tom Petersson (bass, backing vocals), and Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion).  We hope that everyone will visit their favorite site for the absolute best in rock music and will then add it to your never-ending, forever-growing collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-approved music and DVDs- you will be glad you did.

Happy birthday, Chef T!


[i] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane, the Jefferson Starship, Starship, and of the various bands’ members beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.  Please look for them and enjoy.

[ii] We promoted the music of Iron Butterfly beginning on Saturday, 27-July-2013 through Thursday, 08-August-2013.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your ever-growing collection of rock music.

[iii] We began promoting the music of the famous acid rock band from Texas- the 13th Floor Elevators- beginning on Tuesday, 14-May-2013 through Thursday, 06-June-2013.  We would encourage everyone to seek the music of this legendary band out and adding it to their collections.  You will be glad you did.

[iv] We look forward to doing the Clash but expect to do Supertramp first, then Pink Floyd, then Electric Light Orchestra/the Move, then Yes, and then perhaps the Clash.  They are among the amazing British rock bands of the 1970s and deserve to be acknowledged as such.

[v] We are not sure when we will present the music of the Cars but if you are still with us when we celebrate our second decade of activity, you may see them then so please, stay with us.  We thank you.

[vi] 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)

[xvii] IF the charges against Gen. Milley are true- and we pray they aren’t- his name will fall alongside those of Russian FBI spy Robert Hanssen and CIA traitor Aldrich Ames.  Names that every time they are heard cause patriotic Americans to spit.  This scumbag, Gen. Milley, says that ‘his calls to his Chi-Com ‘counterpart’ (we believe, MASTER) were designed to prevent conflict between the Chi-Coms and the U.S.  Folks, we believe that Milley is a creature of Beijing.  This is definitely NOT good.

236. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 24, 2022

61. 2020 Monday F: Chi-Com ‘social media’ ap TikTok launches a lawsuit against the Trump administration for having issued an executive order forcing the ‘ap’ to shed its Chi-Com masters and to become American-owned. We shall see where that goes.

  68. 2021 Tuesday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– Former Department of Homeland Security Director Jeh Johnson said something even a kindergartner knows: that Afghanistan could become a breeding ground for terrorists.  You think?  Next- and this is crazy- Joe Biden’s handpicked CIA Director William Burns met with the Taliban in Kabul this morning.  WTF?  In other news regarding the collapse in Afghanistan, Rep. Glenn Grothman, R-WI 6th congressional district, says it appears that the Taliban is ‘having fun with Joe Biden.’  (Note- the Taliban has come a long way, folks, and is adept at using social media to get their messages across).
  69. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Greetings, folks.  As much as it upsets our stomach to continually point out the deficiencies of the loser some claim is the ‘vice president,’ we are compelled to do it anyway.  Today is Day No. 153 since Joe Biden made “Kooky Kamala” Harris the so-called ‘border czar’ and Day No. 60 since her sole visit to the U.S.-Mexico border.  What can we say other than the fact that this woman is a complete loser?  It is what it is.  Next, here are the numbers for the illegal alien invasion along the southern border and across the United States as presented by One America News.  First, here is the cost of caring for these frigging illegal alien losers for just this day: $614,878,400.  Second, here is the cost of caring for these maggots for this year: $258,149,171,200.  Third, here is the number of illegals who have swarmed into our country just this frigging year: 2,645,822.  Fourth and final, here are the numbers- conservative ones, we assure you, of the number of illegals roaming across the United States as we speak: 36,645,820.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  Unfortunately for Joe Biden, the U.S. Supreme Court told him he must restore the “Remain in Mexico” Policy enacted by President Donald J. Trump.
  70. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been overseas visiting Singapore.  Wow.  The Singaporeans should have asked for someone better to visit them but there is no one of any worth in the regime to go overseas.  Still, they claim “Kooky Kamala” Harris was slow going to her second stop in Vietnam out of fear of the Havana Syndrome.
  71. 2021 Tuesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Following the Food and Drug Administration giving the Pfizer Xi Jinping Bat Flu its full approval, senile old Joe Biden is urging ALL Americans to rush out and get vaccinated with this crap.  F**k him.  Elsewhere, as Hawaii continues combatting the Chi-Com Wuhan Flu Virus, Governor David Ige, Democrat, is urging ALL tourists to stay away from the popular vacation spot.

  75. 2021 Tuesday M: New York State News– In the Empire State, Lt. Governor Kathy Hochul became Governor Kathy Hochul, the first female governor of the state of New York today once she placed her hand atop the Holy Bible and recited the oath of office.  Meanwhile, outbound Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov (well, ex-gov) is still talking crap about what has befallen him.  He said the ‘sexual harassment charges against him are a political firecracker.’  Sadly, the Emmy he won last year for reporting COVID-19 updates was snatched away from him today.  Loser.
  76. 2021 Tuesday N: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1688 what with a $270 million jackpot on the line: 17, 18, 26, 52, 67, and Mega 19.  Out of 93,473 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $1,001,371.  The winning ticket was sold at Fastrip Food Store in La Puente, CA 91744.
  77. 2022 Wednesday: BIG ELECTIONS yesterday.  Things continue worsening for the Democrats which is why they continue leaking what they consider to be little tidbits of damaging information with which to bring down President Donald J. Trump.  Can someone please tell them it’s making our resolve even stronger?  Oh, another $3 billion going to Ukraine?  What the heck?  Is the Biden crime family getting kickbacks from every nickel of U.S. public monies they send to Kyiv?  Wouldn’t surprise any of us…

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0931 a 40” x 60” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Avocets at Sunset.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclees, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Following the release of “Pacific Ocean Blue”- Dennis Wilson’s first solo album, he began work on his follow-up, “Bambu.”  Sadly for him and for his myriad fans, Dennis drowned at the bottom of Marina Del Ray following a drinking binge and an emotional relapse regarding his ex-wife that caused him to leap into the shallow waters.  He never came up to the horror of friends and family as well as his fans.  The Caribou label cobbled together music from the sessions that would have led to the release of “Bambu” and added some additional material, enough of which to provide music for a two LP vinyl set.  We hope you will investigate this one to your heart’s content and if you think it’s a worthy addition to your growing collection of sun-fun music, please add it to your overwhelmed music shelves.  You will be glad you did.

2021 Thursday R: U.S. Senate News I- The U.S. Senate passed a bill today BARRING imports from Xinjiang Province in communist China, the place where Chinese Nazis intern Uighur Muslims. They use them as slave labor as they try to batter them into submission. Good. NO more goods from the Chi-Coms period. Bring the supply chains home. Anyhow, the name of today’s act is the Uighur Forced Labor Prevention Act- the UFLPA.

  68. 2020 Wednesday A: Meanwhile, one of President Trump’s financial advisors, Peter Navarro, authored an op-ed in USA Today in which, he criticized Dr. Anthony Fauci as not being right on anything related to the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  The White House said they knew nothing of the editorial.  Elsewhere in New York City, NYPD officers discovered the body of Bangladeshi tech entrepreneur Fahim Saleh, 33-years-old dismembered in his luxury apartment.  His head and limbs were sorted into plastic bags for disposal with an electric saw nearby.  Finally, President Trump and Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr declare war on MS-13.  ‘Bout time!

  78. 2021 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.317 per gallon, $3.000 in Florida, $4.067 in Hawaii, and $3.837 in Washington state. [xviii]    Let’s look at one other location- Puerto Rico: $2.909.  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- St. Lucia: $4.286 per U.S. Gallon.[xix]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,521,987,904,317 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 which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Taiwan, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Hong Kong with $224 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  79. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 114 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris- apparently, the most despised woman in the nation’s capital- to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and to have NOTHING to stem the infestation of millions of illegal aliens flowing into the country.  Today is also her 20th day since her one and only visit to the border.  Still, the nation awaits her ‘second coming.’  Regarding the border, Rep. Kat Cammack, R-FL 3rd congressional district, says of the ongoing border calamity, that it is a ‘true, humanitarian crisis.’  Joe Biden, FIX the problem, stop the invasion.  Meanwhile, U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland has given approval for immigration courts to begin dismissing illegal aliens immigration cases.
  80. 2021 Thursday G:  Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– In other border related news, the Biden regime is saying “NO” to Cuban and Haitian entry into the United States even though there is a de facto right to admission for refugees fleeing these toxic hellholes.  Sadly, the U.S. says it has a ‘contingency plan if a tidal wave of Cubans take to the sea and begin heading north to the United States seeking asylum and freedom.  Uh, what are you going to do, Biden regime?  Sink their vessels?  WTF is wrong with the Biden regime?  (Note- it seems as the Democratic-Socialist continue the heavy push towards communism, people fleeing FROM communism are no longer welcome).
  81. 2021 Thursday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Outgoing German Chancellor Angela Merkel came to Washington, D.C., today to meet with the voice in Joe Biden’s earpiece.  They had an enjoyable conversation. Former Director of National Intelligence Rick Grenell said of Merkel that she is ‘naïve when it comes to the Chi-Coms and Russia.’   Next, mourners attended the funeral of slain Haitian leader Jovenel Moise today. 
  82. 2021 Thursday I:  COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Los Angeles reimposes a mask mandate as COVID-19 variant cases continue to skyrocket.  Could it be happening because of the hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens being settled in the City of the Angels?  Los Angeles is requiring ALL citizens- vaccinated and unvaccinated- must wear masks or face the consequences.   Speaking of Chi-Vi vaccines, Joe Biden is reaching out to celebrities to go out and encourage everyone to get the shots NOW.   Elsewhere, South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson says that NO school within their state can force any student to get vaccinated or to show proof of Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccinations.  In other COVID-19-related news, CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky says that it’s ‘within our power to control a fall surge of the Chi-Vi.’
  83. 2021 Thursday J: Health and Medical Alerts– As if Johnson & Johnson is not already drawing fire for the quality of their Wuhan Flu vaccines, the company had to recall numerous spray sunscreens because they contain cancer-causing chemicals.  You didn’t know this before you put them on the market?  Who wants to get a J & J bat flu vaccine now?
  84. 2021 Thursday K:  Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– As disquieting news continues to come out of the Arizona 2020 Election Audit regarding the fraud and criminality that occurred in the Copper State on Election Night and in the subsequent days, House Democratic-Socialists continue trying to derail the process.   Let ‘em try.   Author Michael Wolff says that Fox News Channel gleefully took down President Donald J. Trump by calling Arizona early that night.  Scumbags.
  85. 2021 Thursday L:  Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden continues to draw flak as he continues lying about the 2020 Presidential Election and various states’ efforts at carrying out audits.   Next, Joe Biden says that the ‘U.S. will protect the U.S. embassy in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, but won’t send American troops to help re-establish law and order on the benighted island.
  86. 2021 Thursday M:  Political News I– Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, is calling out the hypocrisy of Senator Bernie Sanders, CPUSA-VT, for not calling the Cuban crisis what it is: the people are sick of communism and are seeking to revolt.     Next, Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says that the “DOJ, the Biden regime, MUST answer for the alleged crimes of Hunter Biden.”  Amen.  Meanwhile, prosecutors are requesting that the Capitol Hill ‘rioter’ who carried the Trump flag onto the Senate floor does time in prison.’  What is up with these goobers?  Riots went on all last year and the human garbage involved them are out wandering about while patriots swept up in the greatest false flag operation in the history of the United States face years, even decades in federal slammers.  This is NOT America, and that pompous fat ass Gen. Mark Milley has the nerve to call Trump supporters, “Nazis?”  Look in the mirror, general.
  87. 2021 Thursday N:  Political News II– Rep. Thomas Massie, R-KY 4th congressional district, and Chip Roy, R-TX 21st congressional district, are blasting House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s January 06, 2021, Select Committee probe as being little more than a flagrant waste of time.  Next, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says that the Democrats possess an ’authoritarian impulse.’  We could have told you that, senator.   Moving on, Rep. Byron Donalds, R-FL 19th congressional district, says that the ‘U.S. does not need the U.N.’s help combatting racism in the United States.’   Speaking of racism, Rep. Brad Schneider, D-IL 10th congressional district, finds himself the target of a lawsuit by a female black staffer named Patrice Campbell who claims the work environment is both hostile and racist.   Her supervisor, Karen Davidman apparently told Ms. Campbell to ‘get a rope and put it around her neck’ and then when she complained, was pigeon-holed.  That’s Democrats for you and they call Republicans ‘racists.’  LOL.
  88. 2021 Thursday O:  Political News III– A new Gallup poll says that distrust of Fake News Media is increasing and that appreciation for law enforcement is going up across the country.  Two more heavy-duty blows atop the Democrat scumbags’ shoulders.   (Note- no wonder they are rushing in millions of illegal aliens, folks, using them to REPLACE the American people).  Meanwhile, a new Skynova poll says that 88-percent of the American people are terrified by the skyrocketing inflation being caused by senile old Joe Biden.  Elsewhere, as New York state goes to war against Chick-Fil-A restaurants in its state, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, says he will ‘go to war’ for the successful chicken franchise.  Speaking of the Empire State, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov is set to answer questions in the probe swirling around him this weekend.  No wonder the big schmeckel has been quiet lately.   Finally, Rep. Joyce Beatty, DS-OH 3rd congressional district, underwent arrest in Washington, D.C., protesting for voting rights.
  89. 2021 Thursday P: U.S. Supreme Court News I– U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer says he has NO intention of retiring anytime soon, much to the dismay of dimwitted morons such as Sandy “The Fly” Cortez and her ignorant fellow (Suicide) Squad members.  After all, Justice Breyer recently hired at least four new law clerks for next year’s term.  That’s right, sob your eyes out there, AOC.
  90. 2021 Thursday Q: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– We suspect the NFL must be trying to follow the NBA into doing more business in communist China than in the U.S. because the league is promising MORE WOKE social justice messaging in the upcoming season.  Folks, although we may report final scores as we did last year, none of us are going to buy anymore merchandise nor will we watch any more games.  Message to NFL_ “F**k you.”  In 10 years, you will regret your decision.
  91. 2021 Thursday R: U.S. Senate News I– The U.S. Senate passed a bill today BARRING imports from Xinjiang Province in communist China, the place where Chinese Nazis inter Uighur Muslims.  They use them as slave labor as they try to batter them into submission.  Good.  NO more goods from the Chi-Coms period.  Bring the supply chains home.  Anyhow, the name of today’s act is the Uighur Forced Labor Prevention Act- the UFLPA.
  92. 2021 Thursday S: Federal and State Court News– Pop singer Britney Spears is now able to hire her own attorney.  That, friends, is a step forward. 
  93. 2021 Thursday T: Fake News I– Alas, the CNN morning show starring Brianna “Whitebitchsplaining” Keillor is tanking, seriously tanking, and it’s easy to see why: puffed up, suck-eyed blowfish lead anchor from Australia comes off as one of the least likeable personalities on any ‘news channel.’  (Note- the answer is to deport her back to Downunder.
  94. 2021 Thursday U: President Donald J. Trump News– America’s President Donald J. Trump gave an “I-told-you-so” as news continues coming out showing that Fox News Channel called the state of Arizona early so as to help the Democrats steal the 2020 Presidential Election.  (Note- we also believe that in the Copper State, Martha McSally would still be a GOP vote in the U.S. Senate.  Lots of shenanigans underfoot on Election night and in the subsequent hours).  Next, President Donald J. Trump and U.S. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy have set a date to meet together in New Jersey.
  95. 2021 Thursday V: Florida State News– Norwegian cruise lines is unhappy with the ban on COVID-19 vaccine passports and is suing the Florida Surgeon General Dr. Scott A. Rivkees, M.D. to get one imposed so they can require them before their passengers can embark on a cruise.   In other Sunshine State news, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis announced today a $106 million civics program as the Democratic-Socialists continue trying to ramrod Criminal Race Theory (Critical Race Theory) down the throats of the people.
  96. 2021 Thursday W: Economic News– The White House is dancing the jig today.  Last week, first-time jobless benefits claims fell from 382,000 the previous week to 360,000 last week.  This is good news?  Atop that we learn that 1.8 million Americans turned down work during the heavy days of the Chi-Vi Wuhan Bat Flu pandemic.
  97. 2022 Friday: This year’s news will appear next year.  Meanwhile, in a couple of weeks, my family and I will be flying to Taipei to vacation on the island of Taiwan.  See you all soon.

[i] We promoted the music of the famed San Francisco, California, rock band, Moby Grape, on Monday, 09-April-2012 through Monday, 23-April-2012.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.

[ii] We are unclear as to when we will begin promoting the music of the legendary British rock band, YES, but when we do, you will be the first to know.  This offering will go as long as- if not longer- than the Beatles and their individual members.   Please stay tuned.

[iii] We began promoting the music of the famous acid rock band from Texas- the 13th Floor Elevators- beginning on Tuesday, 14-May-2013 through Thursday, 06-June-2013.  We would encourage everyone to seek the music of this legendary band out and adding it to their collections.  You will be glad you did.

[iv] We hope to share the music of Lynyrd Skynyrd sometime in the next decade.  At least by 2029 so please stay tuned for further news.

[v] See previous footnote.

[vi] 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.

[vii] At the time considered to be a brilliant move on the part of staunch anti-communist Richard M. Nixon, it was a big mistake to normalize any relations with this communist giant when we already had problems with both them and the USSR.  Communist China should have been shunned, stunted, and possibly destroyed.  Look at all the trouble they have caused in the 21st century with all their fetid pandemic diseases created in their biowarfare labs in Wuhan and sent around the world with alacrity. 

[viii] We began promoting the music of Jethro Tull, Ian Anderson, Martin Barre, Mick Abrams, Glenn Cornick and Wild Turkey, Blodwyn Pig, and Paris beginning Monday, May 24, 2021, and the presentation is still ongoing.

[ix] We presented the music of the Kinks, as well as of Ray and Dave Davies, beginning on Monday, 22-December-2014 through Sunday, 15-March-2015.  We hope you will check out the music of this original British invasion band as they are as relevant today as they were more than 50 years ago.  Sure beats the hell out of Maroon Five and a homo twit like Adam Levine.  What a loser, he looks like the flipping illustrated man.

  61. 2020 Sunday: What the AICPENDBLOG.COM believes to be Communist China-well-funded and Democratic Party well-orchestrated and coordinated riots continue occurring in cities across the country, big and small.  The time is NOW for the government to regain control of the cities by putting the military into the streets.  Time to tell the People’s Republic of China that NEUTRON BOMBS will soon be on the way.  Is this the ‘second revolution?’ Will we throw this scum back or will we allow them to topple our government and then aid Beijing to control the world?  President Trump has said that ANTIFA is a domestic terrorist organization which we have said for several years now.  Time to crush the scumbags.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Following “Sunflower,” the next Beach Boys album is “Surf’s Up,” an album that came out on August 30, 1971.  This is a phenomenal record, one that features every band member contributing lead vocals with the exception of Dennis.  The album features the same lineup as the preceding one: Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), and Bruce Johnston (vocals and bass).  The album is excellent all the way through with the exception of one peculiar track which we will get to.  The album opens with “Don’t Go Near the Water” sung by Mike, Al, and Brian followed by one of Carl Wilson’s all-time greatest, “Long Promised Road,” followed by “Take a Load off Your Feet” sung by Brian and Al followed by one of Bruce Johnston’s best, “Disney Girls 1957.”  Closing side one out is a remake of an old Lieber and Stoller song, “Riot in Cell Block Number 9” only done as “Student Demonstration Time” sung by Mike Love.  Side two opens with another Carl Wilson classic, “Feel Flows” followed by “Lookin’ at Tomorrow (A Welfare Song)” sung by Al followed by the extremely strange “A Day in the Life of a Tree” sung by two of Brian’s lyricists and Al.  Take this one for what you will.  The final two songs, “Til’ I Die” sung by Carl, Brian, and Mike is absolutely stunning followed by the final cut, one from Brian’s ‘Smile’ project, “Surf’s Up,” sung by Carl, Brian, and Al.  Absolutely amazing from start almost to the finish which is why we hope everyone will seek it out, give it a good listen, and to make it a part of your daily listening rotation.   You will be glad you did.

Gov. Janice McGeachin, while he was out of the state.  Apparently, McGeachin is running against her boss seeking to take him out because of his handling of the COVID-19 crisis in the state.  Governor Little NEVER ordered masks to be worn but wore one himself.  While he was out of state, McGeachin undermined him by instituting a mask mandate.  She sounds more like a Democrat to us.   McGeachin claims she tried to protect personal freedoms with her bogus mask mandate.  (Note- this woman sounds like a member of the Ben Sasse, Mitt Romney, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Richard Burr, Bill Cassidy, and Liz Cheney class of losers.  There’s always room for more).

  12. 2021 Friday K: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– President Donald J. Trump has said that ‘vast numbers of dead folks voted in 2020’ (which is no surprise to us); however, even stranger, many of them asked for absentee ballots.  Now that’s peculiar.  Meanwhile, a judge has halted the election audit in Fulton County, Georgia, after Democrats began raising holy hell about it.  Wait- if they had nothing to hide, why not encourage the audit?  Something does not add up here.  
  13. 2021 Friday L: Joe Biden News– Rep. Dan Bishop, R-NC 9th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden is compromised by the Chi-Coms.’  Speaking of Joe Biden and his pals, the Chi-Coms, the leader of the regime says he will ‘release the Chi-Vi report in 90 days as long as there isn’t something within it that might embarrass his overlords in Beijing.’  Wow. In other disgusting news, the Daily Caller reported that Joe Biden looking at the young daughter of one of his flunkies, he said ‘she looks like she 19-years-old with her legs crossed.’  (Note- this is the sexual goober you people on the left claim is our ‘president?’  We’re so proud).

  15. 2021 Friday N: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– entertainer Bill Cosby won’t get early release because he refuses to attend sexual deviate classes in jail.  (Note- if the man DIDN’T do the crimes of which he went to prison, doesn’t attending those classes confirm that you did?  Catch 22 folks).   Elsewhere, the illegal alien who murdered Mollie Tibbetts back in 2018- Cristhian Bahena Rivera- was convicted of her murder today.  Justice has been served.   Meanwhile, Hunter Biden reportedly bragged about smoking crack with former D.C. mayor and famous crackhead Marion Berry. Wow.  Something of which to brag, Hunter. Second to last, California authorities are offering $300 thousand reward to find out who the hell murdered Aiden in a fit of road rage about a week ago.  Finally, noted legal scholar and professor Dr. Alan Dershowitz says the CNN lawsuit is all about misleading the ticket.

Pritzker, DS-IL, seeks to end a program that helps disadvantaged kids get into private schools.  Wow.  Next, in New Mexico as the race to fill the seat of now-U.S. Secretary of the Interior Debra Haaland heats up, it appears that another seat might go to the Republicans.  The special election will occur on June 1, 2021.   Meanwhile, the Senate vote to create the January 06, 2021, Commission so wanted by House Democrats goes down in smoke even though the usual suspects among the RINOs voted in favor of it.[xix]   Elsewhere, the world learns that the ‘Durham Probe’ has spent $1.5 million; however, President Donald J.

  18. 2021 Friday Q: Political News III– House Republicans are putting forth two bills with which to confirm the origins of the Wuhan Virus.  God bless them.  Next, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov slapped two new judges onto the Empire State’s appellate courts.  He NEEDS friends in high places to protect him.  Speaking of New York, Pro-Life protesters won a victory that will allow them to continue protesting this abominable practice that no moral country should ever permit the way it’s permitted here.  Meanwhile, Rep. Barry Moore, R-AL 2nd congressional district, says of Joe Biden’s $6 trillion budget that it’s ‘criminal.’  He says instead of mailing checks to people’s mailboxes as ‘COVID-19 relief,’ it would make more sense to get people back to work and give them a tax holiday for as long as possible.’  Finally, since Mayor Lori “The Bigot” Lightfoot said, ‘white reporters can no longer interview her,’ some smartass has served her with a lawsuit.  Good for them.
  19. 2021 Friday R: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Noted conservative icon Todd Starnes says that a teacher in Virginia has been placed on leave for refusing to affirm that biological boys can become biological girls which they flipping can’t.  The Board of Education in Virginia placed this teacher on leave as they continue pushing this crackpot crap.  Folks, Myra Breckinridge was a flipping movie and anyone who continues pushing this crap is doing it as a way of damaging the country.  Perhaps it would be better if the jihadists did take the country over.  Rooftops in every city would be extremely busy.  Moving on, liberal MP William Amos of Canada was forced to apologize for peeing in a bottle while on a conference call with other lawmakers.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by the Beach Boys for some unknown reason was panned when in fact, it is among our favorites of their so-called ‘early-mid stage’ recordings.  “20/20” came out on February 10, 1969, and has some of our most favorite tunes on it.  Tunes like the live favorite, “Do It Again,” “I Can Hear Music,” “Bluebirds over the Mountain,” the raunchiest Beach Boys tune ever- “All I Want to Do” (hard-rocking, too), as well as the beautiful instrumental, “The Nearest Faraway Place.”  Also on this amazing record is a lovely cover of “Cotton Fields,” as well as “Our Prayer” and “Cabinessence.”  The lineup features Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals and saxophones), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), and Bruce Johnston (vocals and bass), as well as some other musicians with which to round out the overall sound.

[i] We promoted the music of the world-famous Creedence Clearwater Revival beginning on Saturday, 16-November-2013 through Saturday, 07-December-2013.  Being the inattentive morons that we were back then, we neglected to promote the music of the band’s individual members.  We hope to do this one day so folks, keep vigilant for the day when we do.

[ii] We began promoting the music of the famous acid rock band from Texas- the 13th Floor Elevators- beginning on Tuesday, 14-May-2013 through Thursday, 06-June-2013.  We would encourage everyone to seek the music of this legendary band out and adding it to their collections.  You will be glad you did.

[iii] We hope to share the music of Lynyrd Skynyrd sometime in the next decade.  At least by 2029 so please stay tuned for further news.

[iv] We promoted the music of King Crimson, one of the greatest prog-rock bands of all time beginning on Monday, 20-October-2014 through Sunday, 21-December-2014.  We hope you will check them out as the remain active to this day.

[xviii] Leakers within the federal government in the know claim the U.S. has a treasure trove of intelligence data on the Wuhan Institute of Virology and the experiments occurring there.  The question is, WILL Chi-Com-loving Joe Biden possess the balls to share the truth.

[xix] A slobbering Joe Biden says the probe into the events of January 6, 2021, is ‘important to him.’  Dude, you can’t even remember what happened yesterday much less 4.5-5 months ago.

[xx] Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes says, ‘CRT is crazy, that he took it years ago in law school and that this crazy crap was nothing like it now is.’  According to him, CRT ascribes racism to everything and puts equity over merit-based outcomes.

  69. 2021 Thursday: JOE BIDEN NEWS– Joe Biden debuted executive actions this morning that he is taking to strip firearms away from the American people.  Most of them are feelgood measures for his whack-a-doodle base but even so, some of them have teeth- if anyone will obey them (which, we here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM have no intention of doing.  NO one is taking our firearms away, no one).  Next, Joe Biden nominated perhaps the worst person to become head of the ATF- the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (and Explosives), David Chipman, the dimwit who transformed the debacle at Waco, Texas, into what it became by lying through his teeth about things that SUPPOSEDLY occurred there, but which did not, and which then led to the deaths of mostly women- many of them pregnant- and children.  This was one of the shining events that occurred during the Bill Clinton administration, overseen by Attorney-General Janet Reno.   Congressman Ken Buck, R-CO 4th congressional district says that Chipman is the absolute worst person to head the ATF.
  70. 2021 Thursday A: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE–  Texas Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, came out today and lit the Biden administration up for the appalling conditions in Border Patrol facilities holding tens of thousands of illegal alien, river-swimming, or fence-jumping invaders.  He condemns the Biden administration for its shocking lack of compassion and sensitivity and demands they close these facilities now which means these people should be loaded aboard empty airliners and dumped back in Guatemala.  Let THEM sort them out seeing as how they are a major starting point for this invasion.  Build the wall and deport them all, now.  Anyhow, Governor Abbott pointed out the human rights abuses such as rampant sexual assaults on women, children, and weaklings as well as shortages of food, medical supplies, clean water, and proper clothing and bedding.  IF these horrendous practices occurred under the Trump administration, President Trump would be visiting Old Sparky but under Joe Biden, “No problem, amigos, no problem”… Finally, people continue asking where the nation’s ‘border czar,’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris is.  She has been traveling around the country but nowhere near the border.  At least Cuban-born U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is visiting the border today.  Praise the Lord! 
  71. 2021 Thursday B: MASS SHOOTING AND CRIME NEWS–  We learned early today that in Rock Hill, S.C., former NFL player Phillip Adams shot and killed Dr. Robert Lesslie and his wife, Barbara Lesslie along with their two grandchildren- ages 5 and 9- in their home as well as two air conditioning technicians working outside their home.  One of the techs survived and called in for help and when police arrived, they found evidence that led them to the home of Adams’ parents where they encircled the home after getting his mother and father out of the home.  Adams then shot himself.  No one knows why he did what he did.  Later in the day, following Joe Biden’s mumbling stumbling bumbling announcement on various executive actions he is taking to strip guns away from the American people, a mass shooting occurred in Texas.  Like clockwork, in Bryan, Texas, a gunman entered the corporate offices of Kent Moore Cabinets and shot seven people, some of them critically, but none of them dead at the time of this reporting.  Police are purportedly chasing several suspects so we will provide updates as we learn them.
  72. 2021 Thursday C: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS– The communist Chinese in Beijing warned their stooge- “Pro-China Joe” Biden- today that he had better not boycott the 2022 Winter Olympics in their capital city.  We say, “F**k them!  Who do you think you are, you commie bastards?’  Next, the Biden administration announced that it is going to lift ALL sanctions on the crap-hole nation of Iran without seeking anything in return.  Good for you, Joe, good for you. Regarding the Chi-Coms, tech investor Peter Thiel says that ‘Bitcoin’ may very well be a financial tool the communists can use against the United States.  Moving on, France is postponing the French Open to May 30 over fears of COVID-19.  Meanwhile, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says the ‘U.S. policy on Russia is both dumb and ineffective.’  This comes after the Biden administration yesterday evening revived the Trump-Russia collusion scam and Russian interference in U.S. elections by announcing he is going to slam Russia with new sanctions for meddling and hacking.  Okay, Joe.

Trump.  Elsewhere, the Palestinians are crying and screaming that they are ‘being stabbed in the back.  Oh, boohoo.  STFU you worthless scumbags- you’ve had your chances, more than any other country ever, to make peace.  When ALL Arab nations sign onto this deal, you will have a choice: make peace with Israel or become the pariah of the world, forever shunned, dismissed, and driven away.   
  62. 2020 Tuesday A: As wildfires rage out of control along the West Coast, at least 36 people in California alone are dead because of the conflagrations.  All of this is easily preventable if only proper forest management would move to the fore once again.  IF (and this is a big IF) the environmentalists and their Democratic Party stooges GENUINELY loved wildlife, particularly endangered species, would it not make more sense to protect their habitats by proper management coupled with an emphasis on protecting the flora and the fauna?  It is all so unnecessary the level of destruction occurring in our forests that we hope in 2022, the people of California, Oregon, and elsewhere where dimwits rule remember everything these people have done and vote them out en mass!  Enough is enough!
  63. 2020 Tuesday B: During a speech, Democratic vice-presidential nominee Kamala Harris lets it slip that if she and “Pro-China Joe” Biden are elected, it will be a “Harris administration.”  Folks, everyone knows this so don’t act shocked.  Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, California, the county doubles the reward for information leading to the POS shooter who attacked two L.A. Sheriff’s deputies as they sat in their patrol car in Compton, California, from $100,000 to $200,000 and the sheriff encourages race-baiter Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James to put up the same amount; in effect, telling him to put his money where his mouth is.  So far, we’ve heard nothing from “King James” nor did we believe we would.  He’s a punk.  Finally, the city of Louisville, Kentucky, settles on $12 million to the family of Breonna Taylor.  She is the woman who died in a crossfire of lead when police officers stormed into her and her boyfriend’s apartment with a NO-KNOCK WARRANT and then when the boyfriend opened up, she died in a fusillade of lead.   
  64. 2020 Tuesday C: Following the signing of the peace accord at the White House earlier in the day, Palestinians begin firing rockets into neighboring Israel, wounding some citizens as they went about their daily lives.  The Palestinians are a bunch of sniveling pigs.  Stop!  Elsewhere, in Iraq, rockets begin landing near the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad.  This clearly is the work of the bottom-feeder Iranian Revolutionary Guard.  We would hope the Trump administration sinks both their navy and takes out the oil refineries leaving them even more Third World than they now are.  What is clear is that the new peace process in the Middle East is one that has a greater chance of succeeding and sources inform us that Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, possibly Yemen, Algeria, and perhaps Qatar might join in the process.  Elsewhere, in response to the potential Iranian threat to attack a U.S. ambassador, President Trump warns the mullahs that they will pay a price ONE-THOUSAND TIMES WORSE than anything they might do.  Could we see Tehran go up in a mushroom cloud?
  65. 2020 Tuesday D: Here are today’s Chi-Com Horseshoe Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 29,386,463 confirmed cases, UP by 271,986 cases, 930,589 confirmed deaths, UP by 4,993 deaths, and 19,943,453 confirmed recoveries, UP by 270,382 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 6,665,316 confirmed cases, UP by 28,896 new cases, 198,085 confirmed deaths, UP by 718 new deaths, and 3,612,064 confirmed recoveries, UP by 31,279 new recoveries.  We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.  It is also clear that misreporting the news has Americans believing at least 30 million Americans- OR MORE- have died from Xi Jinping’s Chi-Com Flu which is not true which was said a week ago so it shows misinformation is doing its job among the gullible and ill-informed citizenry.
  66. 2020 Tuesday E: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 768,334 confirmed cases, 14,477 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 10,887 confirmed cases, 99 confirmed deaths, and 3,693 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 83,962 confirmed cases, 2,096 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 450,425 confirmed number of cases, 32,655  confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.   The governor of New York, the drooling moron Andrew Cuomo continues trying to blame President Donald J. Trump for all the deaths when he is the one who sent Bat Flu-infected people into rest homes where the most vulnerable people are, uh, we mean, were.  Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there.  Here they are: 162,273 confirmed cases, 1,141 confirmed deaths, and 120,443 confirmed recoveries.  Watch out for the rockets, Mo!
  67. 2020 Tuesday F: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,995.60, UP 2.27 points (+0.008%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,190.32, UP 133.67 points (+1.21%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,401.20, UP 17.66 points (+0.52%).  The price of GOLD is $1,961.90 per troy oz., -4.30 (-0.22%) while the price of SILVER is $27.34 per troy ounce, -0.119 (-0.43%).  The price of PLATINUM is $978.40 per troy oz, -3.80 (-0.39%) while the price of COPPER is $3.06 per pound, -0.006 (-0.20%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,417.50 per troy oz., +8.00 (+0.33%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $38.39 per barrel, +0.11 (+0.29%).  Today, COFFEE is $124.30 per metric ton, +1.00 (+0.81).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.78 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.84 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency, a known fact which is why the world must disengage with them.  Today, communist China’s ally, the World Trade Organization released a ruling that says ‘the U.S. violated international regulations by imposing trade tariffs on $278 billion of Chi-Com goods entering the U.S.’  Stop the crying, Beijing, this is NOTHING ruling, and the U.S. will continue punishing you, authoritarian SOBS.
  68. 2021 Wednesday: Friends, stick around to learn what the day’s events are…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

One of the joys music fans have had throughout the years are offerings of either the BBC show or other radio broadcasts.  Most every band is leaping atop the “Transmission” series of albums and Jethro Tull’s “Transmission Impossible” came out on February 21, 2021.  This is a multi-disc set featuring much of the earlier lineups’ repertoire so we hope the diehard fans and the novices alike will rush to Amazon.com or whatever other site it is you choose and check this one out.  There is no enough live music featuring the earlier musicians such as Mick Abrahams and Glenn Cornick so anytime an offering arrives on the shelves of record stores, well, you need to add this one to your collection- you will be glad you did.

CCC. 2020 Monday: Democratic presidential nominee, “Pro-China Joe” Biden announces (what a joke) ‘NO NEW TAXES ON ANYONE MAKING BELOW $400,000 IN ANNUAL INCOME.’ Okay, Joe, okay- we shall see. You cannot raise taxes by $4-6 TRILLION DOLLARS without going after everyone- including the bottom 50-percent that pay some or no taxes. It is mathematically impossible.

  55. 2020 Monday: Democratic presidential nominee, “Pro-China Joe” Biden announces (what a joke) ‘NO NEW TAXES ON ANYONE MAKING BELOW $400,000 IN ANNUAL INCOME.’  Okay, Joe, okay- we shall see.  You cannot raise taxes by $4-6 TRILLION DOLLARS without going after everyone- including the bottom 50-percent that pay some or no taxes.  It is mathematically impossible.  Next, highly unpopular, former U.S. senator from Arizona announces he is joining the “GOP Anti-Trump cabal.”  Good for you, loser, we wouldn’t have it any other way.  After that, tropical storm Marco begins to weaken but tropical storm Laura is surging on its heels, expected to hit the Texas-Louisiana coastline sometime this week.   Meanwhile, U.S. Postmaster General Louis DeJoy takes questions from House Democrats today.   Elsewhere, we learn that recent storms that tore through Iowa left 14 million acres and 60,000 homes destroyed.  Finally, President Trump and the FDA announce emergency authorization for the use of convalescent plasma treatments for those afflicted by the Wuhan Flu and in dire need of help.    
  56. 2020 Monday A: Liberty University head Jerry Falwell Jr. announces he is stepping down today from both his ministry and the university due to his wife having had a long-time affair with the pool boy.  How flipping sad is that.  It has also been said that Reverend Falwell has not always been true to his wife.  We will see where this goes.  Elsewhere, medical authorities in Germany announce it does indeed appear that well-known critic of Vladimir Putin- Alexei Navalny- was indeed poisoned by a nerve agent.  At first Russia would not let him leave the country but the Germans were able to obtain an exit for him so they could treat him.  We know this Putin had a hand in this outrage and German Chancellor Angela Merkel told Moscow they better figure out what happened to Mr. Navalny.  
  57. 2020 Monday B: Here are today’s Chi-Com Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 23,424,844 confirmed cases, +145,398, 808,716 confirmed deaths, +2,594, and 15,150,716 confirmed recoveries, +172,121.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 5,793,461 confirmed cases, UP by 40,679 new cases, 179,321 confirmed deaths, UP by 637 new deaths, and 2,947,272 confirmed recoveries, UP by 15,246 new recoveries.   Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 668,615 confirmed cases, 12,152 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 6,600 confirmed cases, 47 confirmed deaths, and 2,143 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 71,125 confirmed cases, 1,863 confirmed deaths, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.
  58. 2020 Monday C: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 28,308.46, UP 378.13 points (+1.35%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,799.72, UP 67.92 points (+0.60%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,431.28, UP 34.12 points (+1.00%).  Currently, GOLD is at $1,937.70 per troy oz., DOWN -1.90 (-0.10%), SILVER is at $26.63 per troy oz., UP 0.023 (+0.19%), PLATINUM $923.90 per troy oz.

Trump was able to survive a medical error and subsequent bone cancer. 
  61. 2021 Tuesday: Friends, please stick around to discover whatever the liberals and their Brown Shirts are doing today.  Everyone knows the communist Chinese are the ones investing billions of dollars into the Democratic Party- thank God, I am no longer a Democrat, I saw the light and man, what a light it was- Antifa, the pussies in the Black Lives Matter movement, and all the rest of the evil, scum-sucking pansies seeking to force their perverted, jaded ways onto us.  We are not going to accept this crap.  Hey, have you sent in your tickets for the NRA banned guns giveaway yet?  I have my eye on the Barrett REC7 DI Carbine.  Man, I would love to win that gun…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Ian Anderson assembled a light orchestra and went on the road performing orchestral renditions of Jethro Tull favorites.  “Thick as a Brick Live in Iceland” came out on June 22, 2014, and besides the eclectic Anderson (flutes, acoustic guitars, and vocals), he was also joined by Florian Opahle (guitars, acoustic and electric), David Goodier (bass and glockenspiel), John O’Hara (all keyboards including accordion), Scott Hammond (drums and percussion), Anna Phoebe (violins), and Ryan O’Donnell (singing, dance, and mime).  This is a wonderful album that puts an entirely new spin on the stellar compositions by this phenomenal band.  We hope you will investigate this one to the fullest as it is a worthy addition.  Enjoy.

Gavin Newsom is a POS hack politician.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 1,264 confirmed cases, 22 confirmed deaths, and 921 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor David Ige.  Finally, here are the stats for the communist overrun Ever-Red (Evergreen) State: 42,304 confirmed cases, 1,430 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm for Blue States, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries- shame on you, Governor Jay Inslee.  For fun, let’s look at the Empire State, here are their stats: 404,006 confirmed cases, 32,350 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  In New York, two men bear blame for all the deaths and must lose their qualified immunity: Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo and NYC Mayor Bill “Never Met a Communist I didn’t like” Di Blasio.  Both men should be in prison for their ineptitude in handling this traumatic disease from CHINA.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

One of the best live acts of the 1970s, Wild Turkey should have had a far longer career than what they did but thankfully, their final performances were preserved for posterity.  “Final Performance” came out on July 27, 2000, and it featured some heavy-duty rock and roll tracks delivered by one of the greatest bass players of all time.  The band featured Glenn Cornick (bass, guitars, keyboards, harmonicas), Gary Pickford-Hopkins (vocals), Bernie Marsden (guitars), Mick Dyche (guitars/vocals), Jeff Jones and Kevin Currie (drums), and Steve Gurl (keyboards).   If you want to hear some amazing music by a little-known band by anyone who isn’t a Baby Boomer, please seek this album out and give it a good listen- you will be glad you did.

[iii] We began promoting the music of the famous acid rock band from Texas- the 13th Floor Elevators- beginning on Tuesday, 14-May-2013 through Thursday, 06-June-2013.  We would encourage everyone to seek the music of this legendary band out and adding it to their collections.  You will be glad you did.

[iv] We hope to share the music of Lynyrd Skynyrd sometime in the next decade.  At least by 2029 so please stay tuned for further news.

[v] See previous footnote.

[vi] 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.

[vii] At the time considered to be a brilliant move on the part of staunch anti-communist Richard M. Nixon, it was a big mistake to normalize any relations with this communist giant when we already had problems with both them and the USSR.  Communist China should have been shunned, stunted, and possibly destroyed.  Look at all the trouble they have caused in the 21st century with all their fetid pandemic diseases created in their biowarfare labs in Wuhan and sent around the world with alacrity. 

[viii] We began promoting the music of Jethro Tull, Ian Anderson, Martin Barre, Mick Abrams, Glenn Cornick and Wild Turkey, Blodwyn Pig, and Paris beginning Monday, May 24, 2021 and the presentation is still ongoing.

[ix] We presented the music of the Kinks, as well as of Ray and Dave Davies, beginning on Monday, 22-December-2014 through Sunday, 15-March-2015.  We hope you will check out the music of this original British invasion band as they are as relevant today as they were more than 50 years ago.  Sure beats the hell out of Maroon Five and a homo twit like Adam Levine.  What a loser, he looks like the flipping illustrated man.

  60. 2020 Sunday: What the AICPENDBLOG.COM believes to be Communist China-well-funded and Democratic Party well-orchestrated and coordinated riots continue occurring in cities across the country, big and small.  The time is NOW for the government to regain control of the cities by putting the military into the streets.  Time to tell the People’s Republic of China that NEUTRON BOMBS will soon be on the way.  Is this the ‘second revolution?’ Will we throw this scum back or will we allow them to topple our government and then aid Beijing to control the world?  President Trump has said that ANTIFA is a domestic terrorist organization which we have said for several years now.  Time to crush the scumbags.
  61. 2020 Sunday A: Communist China’s gift to the world, COVID-19 continues causing problems but you would not know it what with everyone out in the streets rioting, looting, burning, and killing.  Here are the global statistics for today: 6,152,160 confirmed cases, 371,700 confirmed deaths, and 2,637,496 confirmed recoveries.  Thank you, Comrade Xi!
  62. 2020 Sunday B: Here are the Wuhan Bat Virus statistics for the United States: 1,825,803 confirmed cases, 105,770 confirmed deaths, and 398,283 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, California first: 110,583 confirmed cases, 4,213 confirmed deaths, and ZERO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Politics as usual.  Next, here are the stats for Hawaii: 651 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 606 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for the Evergreen State: 21,634 confirmed cases, 1,118 confirmed deaths, and like California, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Here are the stats for Washington D.C. just to do something different: 8,801 confirmed cases, 466 confirmed deaths, but like other leftist places, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.
  63. 2020 Sunday C: The city of Chicago experiences its worst day for homicides in 60 years what with 18 people being shot and killed in a single day.  What is wrong with the Windy City?  Why won’t liberal loony Mayor Lori Lightfoot step up and do the job the voters elected her to do?  The woman is a loser and must go via a recall election.  NOW!
  64. 2021 Monday Memorial Day: Let us hope today is a slow news day…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On May 10, 1972, Jethro Tull returned with an anti-concept concept album, “Thick as a Brick.”  The original LP release included a single piece of music that flowed from Side 1 over to Side 2 where it eventually concluded.  At the time, many fans were confused as to WTF this was whereas looking back, many see it as a masterpiece.  The band now included Ian Anderson (vocals, flutes, guitars, keyboards), Martin Barre (guitars), Jeffrey Hammond (bass and keyboards), John Evan (keyboards), and Barriemore Barlow (drums).  Say what you will about both the group and the album, this is a glorious piece that we believe everyone must hear and own so please seek it out now and give it a good listen; we think you definitely will want to add it to your ever-growing musical collection
