201. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, JULY 20, 2022

2022 Wednesday: Is it not amazing how Democrats claim that President Donald J. Trump (and his family) is the corrupt one? Yet, Nancy Pelosi’s drunken sot of a fratricidal husband, Paul, can profit from insider trading info, straight from his lemon-sucking wife’s mouth to his fleshy ear? Is it not amazing how the man claiming to be ‘president’ can say to reporters that son, Hunter, did no business overseas yet we know that feeble Joe Biden is lying? When Donald Trump returns, loads of scumbag Democrats are going to prison, loads of them. It’s going to be glorious…

  62. 2019 Saturday: University of Michigan student and Miss Michigan- Kathy Zhu- found herself stripped of her as a participant in the Miss World America because of past tweets (here we go again) and her conservative views.   As a proud conservative and supporter of President Donald J. Trump, Ms. Zhu has 80,000 followers on both Instagram and Twitter and for this, the pageant bosses punished her.  WTF?  Enough is enough!  Meanwhile, U.S. Border Patrol agents took decisive action as 50 illegal aliens attempted to storm the Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge connecting Texas and Mexico.  The illegals sought to force their way across the closed bridge at 4:00 a.m. but the Border Patrol was prepared for them.  Excellent job!

  67. 2020 Monday D: St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kimberly M. Gardner- a political hack of the highest degree- filed charges against Mark and Patricia McCloskey for having ‘brandished their weapons in an unlawful manner at PEACEFUL PROTESTERS’ threatening to burn down their home, murder, and rape them, and kill their dog.  This is what happens when former Nazi George Soros buys state attorneys general, secretaries of state, and district attorneys at all levels.  We must stop this POS from undermining the country.
  68. 2021 Tuesday: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 192,260,989 confirmed cases, +54,802, 4,133,799 confirmed deaths, +21,007 and 174,942,900 confirmed recoveries, +375,666.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 35,081,719 confirmed cases, UP 63,119 from yesterday’s reporting, 625,363 confirmed deaths, UP 380, [vi] and 29,435,171 confirmed recoveries, UP 28,969.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 307,003 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 97,075 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xiii]        
  73. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.322 per gallon, $2.988 in Florida, $4.083 in Hawaii, and $3.838 in Washington state. [xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- Arizona: $3.132.  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- South Africa: $4.426 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,545,692,603,139 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Saudi Arabia, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is South Korea with $131 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.
  74. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– As much as it causes us anguish to say it, today is Day No. 119 for the so-called splenetic ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the southern border and speaking of such, her 25th day since her one and only visit to the quiet sector of El Paso, Texas.  We wish she would get her glib butt down there and do the job but alas, she shows no signs of going down there again anytime soon.  Speaking of the disaster unfolding along the nation’s border with Mexico, here are the numbers as presented by One America News.  First, here is the cost this day for caring for the tidal wave of the world’s unwanted, its castoffs, its criminals, and its mentally challenged: $536,999,104.  Imagine what good this money could do for America’s veterans?  Next, here is the cost this year of caring for the frigging illegal aliens: $219,715,125,248.  Imagine what this money could do for the American people struggling to reclaim their lives after the Chi-Coms set loose the Xi Jinping Bat Flu?  It could do so much good for so many.   Next, this is the number of illegals who have crossed into the United States this year: 2,251,904.  This is the nucleus of an invasion army running amok within our country.  Finally, this is the conservative estimate of illegal aliens in the country as you read this: 36,251,904.  (Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  While we love OAN, we disagree with their final number.  You see, we said as far back as 2009 when the blog began that the numbers then were between 35-50 million whereas now, we believe the number is closer to 75-100 million.  We must round them up, imprison them in camps in the middle of the Arizona desert or better yet, dump them on Wake Island and let them languish.
  75. 2021 Tuesday G: Foreign News / Overseas News I– As things continue going from bad to worse in Afghanistan thanks to Joe Biden, Taliban rockets landed near the presidential palace in Kabul.  Not good, folks.   Meanwhile, world leaders are growing fearful of the Israeli spyware Pegasus that has been monitoring world leaders.
  76. 2021 Tuesday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– It is amazing how Democrats have flipflopped their stance on the Chi-Vi vaccines.  When Donald J. Trump was in the White House, they said one would have to be crazy to get the Wuhan Virus vaccines whereas now, anyone who is content to wait is somehow a troglodyte, a Neanderthal, a dimwit, or worst of all, a science denier (yet Democrats deny science all the time when it comes to abortion or to the reality of climate change.  Back in the 1970s, they told us the planet was irreversibly cooling and we would be consumed by ice uh, let’s see about 15 years ago).  Meanwhile, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis of Florida believes that appellate courts or even the U.S. Supreme Court will rule in the state’s favor in cruise ships NOT being able to force masks on every passenger.
  77. 2021 Tuesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– As the Democrats continue berating Americans questioning the efficacy of the various Chi-Vi vaccines, unvaccinated Americans believe the vaccines are riskier than the disease, hence the constant drum beat the ‘Delta variant is coming, the Delta variant is coming.’  Look, they will use fear of this Chi-Com villainy to close down the recall election of Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom- the outgoing governor of the once-Golden State on September 14.   In other places like Indiana, a court in that state rules that Indiana University can require proof of vaccination before students can attend classes.   Finally, ever-political Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci says that ‘COVID-19 shots could become mandatory for all school students.’  And it goes on and on and on… on this topic, Rep. Madison Cawthorn, R-NC 11th congressional district made the bold statement that ‘all Dr. Fauci is trying to do is to further his own career.’
  78. 2021 Tuesday J: Political News I– Senate Democrats are trying to force a cloture vote on their ‘infrastructure bill,’ one they eerily tell us that sounds like Obamacare: ‘We have to pass the bill to see what’s in it.’  Nope, no way.   Speaking of the ‘infrastructure bill,’ Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, says that the Democrats push to add amnesty for millions of frigging illegal aliens to the bill is the ‘worst idea ever.’  It is anti-American.  Still, Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer is facing defeat on the infrastructure bill as talks drag endlessly on and on.  In other Senate news, a ‘bipartisan group’ of senators introduced a bill today that will provide Congress more input on presidential foreign policy decisions meaning the 25th amendment is coming for Joe Biden once they figure out what to do with “Kooky Kamala” Harris.   (Our money’s on she will step down so she can spend more time with her beloved family).
  79. 2021 Tuesday K: Political News II– In New Hampshire, former staffer for President Donald J. Trump- Karoline Leavitt- is running to win the GOP primary in the 1st congressional district in New Hampshire so she can take on unpopular Democrat Rep. Chris Pappas.  In other fascinating news, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district, says ‘it’s not a tough decision’ for him to be on the January 06, 2021, Select Committee put together by House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi.  However, the wily nonagenarian speaker might have other ideas: she says she ‘won’t commit’ to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s picks.  Interesting.  What does this semi-senile old crone fear?  Elsewhere, Rep. Buddy Carter, R-GA 1st congressional district, says that “Mumbles” Pelosi is ‘weaponizing the January 06, 2021, Select Committee.’ Twitter suspends Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, yet again. 
  80. 2021 Tuesday L: Political News III– A new Rasmussen poll says that most Americans agree with the calls of President Donald J. Trump for election reforms.  Elsewhere, a judge in Georgia tossed a challenge to the U.S. Senate runoff race that threw the Peach State into the camp of the Democrats earlier this year.  Meanwhile, in the U.S. House of Representatives, Republicans are clamoring for order along the border.  They claim that slobbering old Joe Biden precipitated the border calamity through him not ‘being there.’  The guy is a senile old coot in need of the retirement home and three squares and plenty of “Matlock” reruns every day.   Finally, Congressmen Michael Waltz, R-FL 6th congressional district, and Jay Obernolte, R-CA 8th congressional district, say in the Democrats’ infrastructure bill there is no apparent funding’ so WTF?
  81. 2021 Tuesday M: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– The Chicago Police Department has announced the formation of a new department that will pursue gun crimes meaning they will go after legal gun owners while allowing the criminals to continue blasting one another in the streets.  Elsewhere, a New Jersey woman faces daily fines from her city over her continued display of signs profaning drooling Joe Biden.   Meanwhile, a probationary DEA agent, Mark Sami Ibrahim, was arrested for allegedly participating in the Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021, the greatest FALSE FLAG OPERATION in the history of the United States (one we believe was orchestrated by collusion between the Chi-Coms, the Democrats, and RINO Republicans).
  82. 2021 Tuesday N: National Security News– We learn today- and this is outrageous- that the Chi-Coms own at least 200,000 acres of prime U.S. farmland.  This is insane yet it is a perfect example of what Vladimir Ilyich Lenin said of capitalists: “They will sell us the rope with which we hang them.”  Although some claim Lenin never said this (communists say he didn’t), he most assuredly did and it’s a prime example of how they dismiss our weaknesses.  Folks, the Chi-Coms are using soft power around the globe buying farmland, real estate, and whatever else the Chi-Com bastards can get their hands on.  We need Donald Trump back in the White House so we can boot all of these communist SOBs out of the country and back to their crap-holes.  FIGHT FOR AMERICA!
  83. 2021 Tuesday O: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1678 what with a $128 jackpot on the line: 10, 26, 30, 52, 57, and Mega 10.  Out of 71,305 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR plus the Mega for a prize of $8,562 apiece.
  84. 2021 Tuesday P: Sports News– The Milwaukee Bucks have won the 2021 NBA Finals by beating the Phoenix Suns in Game 6 by a final score of 105-98.  This was the Bucks first championship since 1971.  Congratulations.  The most valuable player was Giannis Antetokounmpo who scored 50 points in Game 6 to lead the team to victory.
  85. 2022 Wednesday: Is it not amazing how Democrats claim that President Donald J. Trump (and his family) is the corrupt one?  Yet, Nancy Pelosi’s drunken sot of a fratricidal husband, Paul, can profit from insider trading info, straight from his lemon-sucking wife’s mouth to his fleshy ear?  Is it not amazing how the man claiming to be ‘president’ can say to reporters that son, Hunter, did no business overseas yet we know that feeble Joe Biden is lying?  When Donald Trump returns, loads of scumbag Democrats are going to prison, loads of them.  It’s going to be glorious…

190. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, JULY 09, 2022

2018 Monday: President Donald J. Trump announces his second pick for the U.S. Supreme Court: Brett Kavanaugh. In order to take the seat of his mentor, Justice Anthony Kennedy, Kavanaugh would have to undergo one of the most grueling confirmation processes heretofore seen in recent times in this country. Eventually, he would persevere but the Democrats in the U.S. Senate did everything imaginable to destroy this excellent jurist. God bless you, Justice Kavanaugh.

  67. 2020 Thursday B: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: Here are today’s Stock Market numbers: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 25,706.09 DOWN 361.19 points (1.39%).  Next, here are the numbers for the NASDAQ: 10,547.75, UP 55.25 points (0.53%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,152.05, DOWN 17.89 points (0.56%).  Here is the price for GOLD: $1,808.20 per troy oz, +4.40 (+0.24%).  Next, the price of SILVER: $19.02 per troy oz., +0.058 (+0.31%).  Here is the price for PLATINUM: $852.50, +5.60 (+0.66%).  Here is today’s price for COPPER: $2.84 per #, +0.004 (+0.14%).  Finally, here is the price for Light Sweet Crude Oil: $39.59 per barrel, -0.03 (-0.08%).
  68. 2020 Thursday C: On the final day of the U.S. Supreme Court’s term, the high court handed down two decisions, both regarding President Donald J. Trump.  First, in Trump v. Vance (Manhattan D.A. Cyrus Vance Jr., a real Trump hater), the court ruled that the president does not have absolute immunity from all lawsuits, all nine justices agreeing on this point.  However, it was not an immediate win for D.A. Vance as he cannot see the tax documents he has been trying to see because it’s a political witch hunt sans any real need to see the tax returns.  In Trump v. Mazars, the court handed the president a tactical victory in that the House committee seeking to see his tax returns cannot go on a fishing expedition and must have a reason as to WHY they must see his tax returns.  We shall see with what the maggots in the House produce.  
  69. 2020 Thursday D: Meanwhile, U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan won’t let go of the now-destroyed case against Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn in that he is asking the federal appellate court to give the case another look.  WTF?  The Justice Dept. and federal prosecutors said to DROP the case because of the illegalities employed by the prosecution against the former national security advisor yet the crazed Judge Sullivan won’t let it go.  The guy is cruising for a future impeachment. 
  70. 2021 Friday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 186,796,737 confirmed cases, +490,353, 4,034,388 confirmed deaths, +8,623 and 170,860,616 confirmed recoveries, +405,277.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 34,707,369 confirmed cases, UP 30,476 from yesterday’s reporting, 622,665 confirmed deaths, UP 452, [vii] and 29,221,947 confirmed recoveries, UP 18,753.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[viii]  
  71. 2021 Friday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 304,305 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 154,890 deaths

[ix]    
  73. 2021 Friday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 845,379 confirmed cases, 6,434 confirmed deaths, and 834,998 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Somalia, 143rd country on the list: 14,995 cases of the virus, 775 confirmed deaths and 7,252 confirmed recoveries. [x]     
  74. 2021 Friday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,870.16, UP 448.23 points (+1.30%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,701.92, UP 142.13 points (+0.98%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,369.55, UP 48.73 points (+1.13%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $74.63 per barrel, +0.07 (+0.09%).  The price of GOLD is $1,808.60 per troy oz., -2.00 (-0.11%) while the price of SILVER is $26.19 per troy ounce, -0.05 (-0.19%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,098.90 per troy oz, +3.20 (+0.29%) while the price of COPPER is $4.34 per pound, -0.00 (-0.08%).

[xiv]        
  75. 2021 Friday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.308 per gallon, $3.012 in Florida, $4.040 in Hawaii, and $3.827 in Washington state. [xv]    Let’s look at one other location- Vermont: $3.046.  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- Burkina Faso: $4.210 per U.S. Gallon. [xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,502,613,982,101 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS. [xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Ireland, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Luxembourg with $288 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  76. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Here we are, Day No. 170 for the Biden regime to have usurped power from the rightful president of the United States, Donald J. Trump.  Anyhow, today is Day No. 108 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka Willie Brown’s mattress, aka the gibbering jackal, aka the screeching banshee, aka the tittering orangutan to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border.  Today is also 14 days since her first and last visit to the border and we don’t expect to see her back at the border until President Donald J. Trump visits the region again.
  77. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Next, here are the stats for the illegal alien calamity for which the Biden regime bears 150-percent responsibility as presented by One America News channel: (1) Total Cost this Day of caring for the riffraff crossing the southern border: $570,053,440.  Next, here are the costs of caring for the tidal wave of illegal aliens this year (2): $207,693,398,016.  Next, (3) this is the number of illegal aliens who have crossed the border this year: 2,128,691.  Finally, (4) Total Number of illegal aliens estimated to be roaming the country: 36,128,692.  Note- this is a conservative effort as we at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day have as far back as 2009 when our blog underwent founding believe the number then was between 35-50 million.  Now, we believe the truer number of illegal aliens lurking in America’s shadows is closer to 75-100 million.  Time to round them up and to begin deporting this human fecal matter back to whence they came.   If we want to keep the brats, let’s put them into military academies and then use them to fight Third World regime change wars.
  78. 2021 Friday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Following the brutal assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moise, at least two Americans are among the 17 suspected assassins scooped up by Haitian law enforcement.  Meanwhile, as things continue going from bad to worse as they normally do in Haiti, Port-au-Prince is begging that the United States send them troops to help them quell the violence.  Time for ‘Papa Doc’ and the Ton-Ton Macoute to come back and restore order, i.e., maybe a little bit of cannibalism will get everyone back in line?
  79. 2021 Friday I: Joe Biden News I– Slobbering Joe Biden is pushing Russia’s Vladimir Putin to do something about hacking U.S. companies.  Next, decrepit old Joe has nominated failed Los Angeles, California, Mayor Eric “The Grub” Garcetti to become the next U.S. ambassador to India.  Next, the voice in Joe Biden’s earpiece told him to fire holdover from the Trump presidency, Social Security Commissioner Andrew Saul after he refused to resign.  Apparently, Democrats and their allied hacks in labor unions and advocates for welfare despised the guy and he had to go.  Thus he did.  C’est la vie.
  80. 2021 Friday J: Political News I– Democratic leaders are doing what they do best and that is threatening another long, sweltering summer of unmitigated violence.  I say, ‘we give it to them!’ Next, the first group to appear before House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s ‘January 06, 2021, Select Committee’ will be Capitol Hill law enforcement officers when the panel begins.  These cops- under control of Speaker “Mumbles”- will be the first panel to dance to Pelosi’s jig.  Will they be the ones we have seen on film welcoming protesters and directing them as to where to go inside the U.S. Capitol on that day?  We expect the False Flag Operation orchestrated by the nonagenarian speaker and her cohorts will be evident for what it is: a load of hooey.
  81. 2021 Friday K: Political News II– Lt. General Michael Flynn, U.S. Army Ret., is endorsing Vernon Jones in his bid to unseat extremely unpopular RINO Governor Brian Kemp of Georgia.  Speaking of Governor Kemp, he reacted angrily to the BS flowing out of the White House regarding the state’s cleaning up of its voting system and said that ‘BOTH Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are lying about the Peach State’s changes to its voting laws.’  Elsewhere, Rep. Pramila “Pucker Puss” Jayapal, CPUSA-WA 7th congressional district, is back to beating a dead horse, “Medicare for All.”  Enough already, “Pucker Puss.”
  82. 2021 Friday L: Political News III– Former governor and UN ambassador under President Donald J. Trump, Nikki Haley, put forth two endorsements today (not that they matter) in two gubernatorial races in the nation.  First, in New Jersey, she has endorsed Republican Jack Ciattarelli and in Virginia, Republican Glenn Youngkin.  We shall see what happens.  Oh, President Donald J. Trump calls Virginia Democratic-Socialist candidate Terry “The Maggot” McAuliffe a ‘political hack.’  Elsewhere, Rep. Michael Waltz, R-FL 6th congressional district, says of Joe Biden’s rushed withdrawal from Afghanistan that it reignites the fears of the terrorists coming here.
  83. 2021 Friday M: Political News IV– In other political news, White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki says that ‘buyers of Hunter Biden’s ‘art’ will remain ANONYMOUS.  Folks, can you fathom what would happen if say Baron Trump was painting artworks and selling them for hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars?  Ye gods, folks, there would be so many investigations on Capitol Hill that all other work of government would come to a screeching halt so every moment of every waking day could be spent investigation such an outrage.  Yet, when crack-headed pedophile Hunter Biden does it, it’s NO big deal.  Retribution is coming folks and it’s going to hit the Democrats like a tidal wave beginning this September when California boots Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom.  The big day is September 14.  EVERYONE VOTE.
  84. 2021 Friday N: Moron News I– We haven’t had any Moron News lately but little Sandy Cortez, aka “The Fly,” aka “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” aka “AOC,” is blaming fossil fuel executives for flooded New York City subways.  That’s like Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom, DS-CA, blaming the horrible forest fire in northern California on ‘global warming,’ aka ‘climate change,’ aka ‘extreme weather,’ or whatever other moniker they choose to put on it when it’s failure to clean the forests and to continue building water infrastructure so that when crises hit- like the ongoing drought- water is available to offset it.  Both Sandy Cortez and “Nazi” Newsom are MORONS.  At least, California is going to get him out on September 14 (unless, of course, the ‘fix is in’ which it might be).  As for AOC and her subways, Baby Girl- if I can call you that- the reason the subways are flooded is because NYC is spending money on social re-engineering projects instead of doing what must be done and that is to maintain and improve existing infrastructure.  God knows there’s more than enough tax dollars in both the city and in the Empire State.
  85. 2021 Friday O: Federal and State Court News– North Dakota is suing the Biden regime over its cancelation of new fossil fuel contracts on public lands.  Good.  Sue the heck out of them.
  86. 2021 Friday P: Fake News I– John King of CNN- pompous, conceited ass- is upset by Alabama GOP Senate candidate Jessica Taylor’s new ad in which a rocket ‘launches’ liberal ideas and values into space and she mispronounces the name of our ‘esteemed “Kooky Kamala” Harris.  The fake news-spouting hack called the ad ‘VILE!’  Ah, wah, wah, wah, John, STFU.  Ms. Taylor is in the running to replace retiring Senator Richard Shelby.
  87. 2021 Friday Q: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump endorses former secretary of the U.S. Department of the Interior Ryan Zinke in his bid to return to Congress from the great state of Montana.
  88. 2021 Friday R: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Stay tuned for the results of Mega Millions Draw #1675 with a $94 million jackpot on the line.  Here are the numbers for tonight’s draw: 06, 37, 39, 41, 46, and Mega 17.  Out of 52,071 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $14,270.
  89. 2022 Saturday: Please join us later in the day to discover the truth…

139. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, MAY 19, 2022

2006 Thursday: A key U.N. panel joined European and United Nation leaders in urging the Bush administration to close its POW camp in Guantanamo Bay, saying the indefinite detention of terror suspects- namely jihadis- there violated the world’s ban on torture. Bullshit- it’s what the scumbags deserve.

  62. 2020 Tuesday: Neil Cavuto is still expressing outrage as are numerous other liberal talking heads and pundits due to him being unashamed that he is taking hydroxychloroquine sulfate as a preventative against the Chinese Virus.  Speaking of COVID-19, here are the stats for the world: 4,893,195 number of confirmed cases, 322,861 confirmed deaths, but 1,686,487 confirmed recoveries which is good.   In the United States, we have 1,558,631 confirmed cases, 92,258 confirmed deaths, but 297,153 confirmed recoveries which again is great.  In the three states where we have chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, we begin with California first: 81,795 number of confirmed cases, 3,334 confirmed deaths, but 0 confirmed recoveries since Gov. Gavin Newsom won’t provide them.  Next, here’s Hawaii: 641 number of confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, but 573 confirmed recoveries; thank you, Gov. Ige.  Finally, we have Washington state where they have a crackpot governor talking about ‘conspiracies from the planet Pluto,’ here are the stats: 18,811 number of confirmed cases, 1,031 confirmed deaths, but 0 confirmed recoveries due to the state not reporting them.  Meanwhile, communist China continues misreporting the statistics but sources within Hong Kong continue getting the truth out and the numbers are 10-15-percent higher than what Beijing is reporting.  Go figure.  
  63. 2021 Wednesday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 165,457,298 confirmed cases, +571,756, 3,429,560  confirmed deaths, +11,341 and 145,664,210 confirmed recoveries, +65,660.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,795,693 confirmed cases, UP 23,533 from yesterday’s reporting, 601,879 confirmed deaths, UP 565,[viii] and 27,295,523 confirmed recoveries, UP 48,317.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ix]   
  64. 2021 Wednesday A: NOTE: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, There Have Been 285,552 Chi-Vi Deaths In The United States- President Biden, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 174,057 deaths.

  66. 2021 Wednesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,221 confirmed cases, 6,395 confirmed deaths, and 832,232 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Cuba, a communist hellhole that liberal Americans for some unexplainable reason seem to worship and love: 128,094 cases of the virus, 834 confirmed deaths and 120,282 confirmed recoveries.[xi]

  68. 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 $4.144 per gallon, $2.887 in Florida, $3.886 in Hawaii, and $3.547 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Wisconsin: $2.877.  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- Kyrgyzstan: $2.313 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,305,687,729,011 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.  
  69. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– today is the 58th day in which the appointed ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris has FAILED to visit the southern border.  What’s up with that?   Speaking of the border calamity, One America News reports today’s stats regarding JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE- as of today, the cost of caring for illegal aliens is $519,152,882.  The number of illegals that have crossed into the United States this year alone sits at 1,555,337 invaders whom the Biden regime is dumping across the United States.  One America News reports the number of illegals in the United States is around 35,555,336 which is incredible, but we have long said that the numbers of illegal alien invaders is between 35-50 million which is not flipping good.  Round ‘em up and begin deporting them.  NOW.  Apparently, along with the more than a million who have flooded into the United States this year, the Biden regime is going to allow in an additional 260 ‘vulnerable illegal aliens,’ i.e., gays, trannys, and other victimized groups, into the U.S. every day where the taxpayers will pay their way.
  70. 2021 Wednesday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– Colombian leaders confirm the death of prominent FARC leader Jesus Santrich- killed in Venezuela.  Venezuelan dictator (and former bus driver) Nicolas Maduro says he knows nothing about it.   In other overseas-related news, U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi calls for a ‘diplomatic boycott of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics.’  What is wrong, Mumbles?  Chi-Coms not dumping enough cash in your bank accounts. 
  71. 2021 Wednesday H: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– After Maricopa County, Arizona, Democrat election officials did their best to delete as much data related to the 2020 Elections, election auditors have announced they have recovered the deleted databases. 
  72. 2021 Wednesday I: Joe Biden News– A mushed-mouth Joe Biden spoke to U.S. Coast Guard grads and after telling them that ‘COVID-19 has prepared you to meet any challenge,’ he lit them up for not being overly enthusiastic about his incredibly low-key, incoherent speech and called them ‘dull,’ forcing them to applaud his stumbling, bumbling speech.  It was incredibly embarrassing to be sure.   Meanwhile, when a news reporter asked Joe Biden about “Kooky Kamala” Harris’ attack on him during the primary debates of last year over his record on busing, the slow-witted moron who resides in the White House said of her comments that her comments were ‘f**king bulls**t.”  (Note- increasing belligerence and anger is yet another sign of mental decline).
  73. 2021 Wednesday J: Joe Biden Regime News I- the regime announces it is going to release 3 terrorists languishing in Gitmo.  (Note- why not try the SOBs and then execute them?).  Next, the regime slanders the impressive, peace-bringing Abraham Accords, basically labeling them as fecal matter.  Wow.  Next, the regime is offering little support to Israel.  It would appear that she will have to fight on in solitude against Hamas and Hezbollah trash seeking to destroy her.  Moving on, Joe Biden’s court-packing commission is meeting soon with answers as to how the Democrats can continue trashing the federal court system.  (Note- a McLaughlin poll says that 64-percent of Americans believe Joe Biden won’t be running in 2024 and that President Donald J. Trump will decimate “Kooky Kamala” Harris should this quack somehow become the Democratic Party’s sacrificial 2024 lamb).
  74. 2021 Wednesday K: Joe Biden Regime News II– The BIG Joe Biden regime news of the day is that the regime is lifting all sanctions on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline running beneath the Baltic Sea from Russia to Germany.  This will bring cheap Russian natural gas to Europe.  What could be wrong with that?  Well, it provides the Putin regime loads of high-paying jobs while increasing his regime’s power and reach across all non-Russia Europe, something President Donald J. Trump fought against, and which Joe Biden has now overturned- and they claim the 45th president was a stooge of the Russians for four long years.  Wow.  What could be wrong with the Russians supplying the main source of energy to Europe?  Why have NATO?  Add to that Joe Biden shutting down the Keystone XL Pipeline on Day 1 and the Colonial Pipeline suffering a Russian hacking attack.  Again, WTF?  Yet, all we hear are crickets…
  75. 2021 Wednesday L: Political News I– The GOP is expected to release their ‘counteroffer’ to Joe Biden’s multi-trillion-dollar 2022 Budget soon.  We await it with bated breath.  Next, Rep. Gus Bilirakis, R-FL 12th congressional district, ripped Health and Human Services Secretary (and California’s shame) Xavier Becerra a new one over the secretary’s stance on ‘partial birth abortion.’  Secretary Becerra sidestepped ‘partial birth abortion’ by mumbling about no actual law prohibiting the barbaric practice.  Ah, one must love the Pro-Death Movement.  Meanwhile, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, RINO-GA, says he is running for re-election in 2022.  Loser.  Elsewhere, Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom released his 2019 tax returns.  Big whoop.
  76. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News II– Senator Tommy Tuberville, R-AL, seeks to codify into law what President Donald J. Trump sought to do back in 2017 and that is to keep U.S. soldiers, sailors, Marines, airmen-and-women, Coast Guard, and other military retirement funds out of communist China.  Back in 2017, the 45th president discovered that the five-member panel that manages military personnel retirement funds were going to invest the money in Chi-Com companies which means that money ALWAYS manages to find its way into Chi-Com military corporations.  That is insane, as insane as allowing the Chinese Communist Party to manufacture the pharmaceuticals the American people rely upon to protect their health.  We hope you succeed in this valiant effort, Senator Tuberville.
  77. 2021 Wednesday N: Political News III– The U.S. Department of Justice is creating a task force to combat Chi-Vi fraud in the United States and around the world wherever it may be connected to the U.S.  Next, President Donald J. Trump is encouraging lawmakers to vote against the proposed 01-06-2021 Capitol Hill Riots, aka the largest false flag operation in the history of American politics, ‘commission’ to investigate the events surrounding that day.  The Democrats do not want to investigate Antifa, Black Lives Matter, or any other domestic terrorist group, just the events of January 06, 2021, which means they want to investigate President Trump yet again, hoping against hope, they can somehow tar and feather him as some sort of Osama bin Laden.  Later in the day, the House voted to establish the commission with 35 Republicans[xix] joining the Democrats.   Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, hoped that Republicans would not vote ‘aye’ on this garbage and yet they did.  Sad, extremely sad.
  78. 2021 Wednesday O: Political News IV– A U.S. Army chaplain found himself reprimanded for being critical of the NEW U.S. Army’s ‘tranny policy.’  This occurred back on May 12 when Chaplain Major Andrew Calvert commented on his personal social media page where he expressed his religious views and mentioned his support for the ban on trannys serving in the U.S. military.  Once again, a conservative thinker is smacked down for sharing his or her personal views.  What a load of crap.   Next, despite what Pope Francis has ordered, U.S. bishops are going to begin debating Joe Biden receiving/not receiving communion over his Pro-Death policies.  We hope they excommunicate the old bastard.   He certainly is NO Catholic.  Elsewhere, ultra-left, Soros-funded hack Attorney General Leticia James says that investigation into President Donald J. Trump is now a ‘criminal matter.’[xx]  Soros’ ankle-biting dog strikes again.  Finally, attorney Mark McCloskey, R-MO, announced that he is running for U.S. Senate in Rush Limbaugh’s home state.
  79. 2021 Wednesday P: Political News V– In the city controlled by Mayor Lori “The Loser” Lightfoot, DS-Chicago, so far this year there have been 1,200 shootings.  Oh- she also will no longer permit white people to interview her.  Racist?  Of course, but Democrats claim it’s somehow not.  Go figure.  In the Keystone State, businessman Lou Barletta is running to replace the POS they have for governor now, the extremely corrupt Tom Wolf.  We hope he clobbers him.  Elsewhere, Senator John Barrasso, R-WY, is pressing the Joe Biden regime over its use of encrypted communications so as to avoid any type of oversight.  This is akin to Hillary Rodham Clinton having a private server next door to her basement crapper.  Can you imagine what would be said if President Donald J. Trump was the one committing this highly questionable act?  Ye gods, don’t even want to think about it.
  80. 2021 Wednesday Q: Miscellaneous News I– A medical panel recommends colon cancer screenings beginning at age 45.  Next, Southern Command plans to double its emerging tech areas budget in 2022.  Next, Yosemite National Park is going to require reservations through September so as not to overcrowd America’s most popular national park.  Elsewhere, Lollapalooza Music Festival returns in Chicago on June 29.  Elsewhere, Lamborghini projects a fully electric car by 2030.
  81. 2021 Wednesday R: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, we have the Super Lotto Draw #3561 with a $47 million jackpot on the line.  Next, we have the Powerball Draw #847 with a $201 million jackpot on the line for some lucky soul(s).   First, here are the results for the Super Lotto draw tonight- 04, 16, 18, 32, 44, and Mega 20.  Out of 125,265 winning tickets, the highest winners are THREE people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $15,174 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at (1) Christy’s Donut in Los Angeles, CA 90062; (2) Safeway Fuel in South Lake Tahoe, CA 96150 (they hit on May 08, 2021, too); and (3) Love’s Travel Stop in Westmorland, CA 92281.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball: 11, 13, 55, 56, 69, and Powerball 04.   Out of 83,446 winning tickets, the highest winners were THREE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $14,910 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by the Beach Boys was filler of sorts what with it being an album of covers done with acoustic instruments and vocals.  “Beach Boys Party” came out on November 08, 1965 and was received well even though the times they were a-changing all-right.  The lineup features Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals and saxophones), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), and Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), and Bruce Johnston (vocals and bass).  Brian Wilson had by this time suffered his first mental breakdown due to the constant stress of being forced by his family members to write hit songs and commercial albums as well as nonstop touring and friction with his abusive father Murray.  He also was experimenting with the popular drugs of the time so he could raise the level of his songwriting which was to come.  Great album for an increasingly contentious time in the history of the world which is why we encourage everyone to seek it out and enjoy.  You will be glad you did.

[i] We promoted the music of the Who and of its individual band members beginning on Monday, 03-August-2015 through Sunday, 29-November-2015.  We hope you will seek out the music of this veteran British band as well as of Pete Townsend, John Entwistle, Keith Moon, and Roger Daltrey.  We know you will enjoy them.

[ii] We look forward to sharing the music of this famed, “Little Ol’ Band from Texas,” ZZ Top sometime in the next decade.

[iii] Not sure as to when we will be promoting the music of Curved Air but when we do, you will be among the first to know.

[iv] We are not sure when AC/DC will be in the works, but you bet they will be at some point, possibly in 2027-2028.

[v] We should have promoted the music of Eric Clapton when we did the music of both Cream and the Yardbirds, but we failed to do so.  We hope to do it extremely soon so please remain vigilant for the day we do.  We thank you.

[vi] We hope to promote the music of the Village People in the not-too-distant future.  Don’t want anyone calling us homophobic. 

[vii] Not sure when we will do the music of Freddie and the Dreamers but one day, we most certainly will so continue reading our political site until we do.

90. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, MARCH 31, 2022

1959 Tuesday: The Dalai Lama flees Communist China and receives political asylum in neighboring India. The communists claim that Tibet belongs to them, but Tibet does not, it’s been an independent kingdom for all time. The communists are invading the country to subjugate it, it’s people, and to provide lebensraum for its people. Wait, isn’t that what the Nazis called their land-grabs? Living room for their people? Funny how history tends to repeat itself…

  72. 2017 Friday: New York City Mayor Bill Di Blasio says he is ‘developing a plan to close the infamous Rikers Island New York Police Department jail within a decade.’  That will be the day.   Elsewhere, at a meeting of NATO members, the Germans say it’s ‘unrealistic for them to spend 2-percent of their GDP on military assets and equipment.’  Wow.  Meanwhile, former 4th U.S. Transportation Secretary William Thaddeus Coleman Jr. died at age 96.  A Republican, he served under President Gerald R. Ford from March 07, 1975, to January 20, 1977.

Trump’s first secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, found himself fired today.  He served from February 01, 2017, to March 31, 2018.  This pretentious fool called his boss a “moron,’ which is one of the major reasons he got canned.  He was actively working against the president from within the State Department.
  74. 2019 Sunday: So many illegal aliens are attempting to storm the United States that the Trump administration has threatened to close the border with Mexico.  The American people want to know, when will there be enough ‘invaders’ for the ruling class to understand this and to then authorize the use of deadly force?  We cannot wait until the nation has been toppled via the sheer numbers of illegals seeking entry to the country.  Shoot them down!
  75. 2020 Tuesday: As the day sputters to an end, cases of the Wuhan Virus continue going up although communist China continues braying like sheep  that cases there are going down and life is returning to normal.  Uh, okay, can’t trust communists folks.  As we wrap up for the day, total confirmed cases around the planet are at 858,785 what with a total of 42,139 confirmed deaths worldwide.  In the United States, there are 203,608 confirmed cases of the Kung Flu with 4,476 confirmed deaths.  Again, thank you, China.  Today, the governor of Virginia, Ralph Northam, says life will be shut down until sometime in June, returning to normal a day AFTER the GOP primary takes place.  What a scumbag.
  76. 2021 Wednesday: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE– Under the Biden administration, it is clear that there no longer is any control on the southern border.  Hundreds of thousands of people are pushing across the border, swamping border guards, and spilling into the interior of the country.  This is akin to what brought about the end of the Roman Empire, its inability to escape perpetual wars as well as losing control of it borders to more and more people who would not assimilate.  Here is what we think: WE believe the Biden administration is praying for the American people to take it upon themselves to defend the border, doing whatever must be done to prevent the collapse of the country.  Then, and only then can some POS such as General Russell L. Honoré can then institute a harsh crackdown of the American people, once again going after the most dangerous enemy the country has ever known: evil white racist bigots.  This is what’s up.  Meanwhile, Chef Lilah Paulikovich informed us today that a relative working at HNL in Honolulu reported the first arrival of a planeload of illegal alien brats.  They are spreading the misery to wherever they can.   
  77. 2021 Wednesday A: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE II– That bug-eyed moron from the Empire State- Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (birth name ‘Sandy Cortez), aka AOC, aka Baby Evita (can we please deport this skank back to Venezuela or Cuba from where she truly came?)- has told the world that to refer to the border crisis as a ‘border surge’ is somehow racist.  Folks, they truly need some sort of intelligence test for people to serve at the federal level because this woman is a ditz.   Texas Governor Greg Abbott demands that the ‘border czar,’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris address the border crisis instead of hiding from it out of sight. 
  78. 2021 Wednesday B: BIDEN ADMINISTRATION NEWS– The Biden administration is backing away from its desire to force a COVID-19 passport onto the American people.  Although they didn’t state this, we believe the following is the reason: when it comes time to vote, the voter would have to show their COVID-19 Chi-Vi vaccine passport with their photo ID.  Everyone knows that Democrats recoil from voter ID as Dracula does the sunlight and/or a crucifix.   Nope, until they can find some other way to force everyone to show proof of vaccination, this one is on the back-burner…for now.   Meanwhile, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is slamming the Biden-Harris administration on the coming massive tax increases with which, the administration plans to pay for all the graft they have in the pipeline.  The Chamber of Commerce probably is wishing Donald J. Trump would return.   Speaking of Biden’s infrastructure plan, progressives are demanding $10 trillion in GREEN NEW DEAL spending.  WTF is wrong with these morons?  We don’t have the f***ing money, you dog dinguses.
  79. 2021 Wednesday C: COVID-19 NEWS– Peter Navarro, President Donald J. Trump’s economic adviser, lit into the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci who has been taking credit for the development of the Chi-Vi vaccine via Operation Warp Speed.   He laid out the case- first the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci downplayed the danger the virus posed to the American people, then said that it would “take years” to develop a vaccine, and then when the vaccine hit, AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci took credit for the vaccine.  We also remember the micro-doc saying, ‘masks were ineffective,’ then saying we ‘should wear 2-3 masks’ and at one point, even suggesting that perhaps ‘we should all wear goggles.’  WTF?  Anyhow, Mr. Navarro calls the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci a ‘sociopath.’  He sure appears to be that way as does Dr. Deborah Birx.  Full of themselves and full of fecal matter.[xi]   Elsewhere, ‘statistics’ show that in 2020, after heart disease and cancer, the Xi Jinping Bat Flu was the third highest cause of death (at 11-percent).[xii]   Finally, France is re-instituting nationwide lockdowns as well as school closures because the Chi-Vi is on the rampage yet again.  And YOU don’t believe that this evil crap didn’t come out of a biowarfare laboratory.  Finally, Pfizer and BioNTech claim their vaccines are 100-percent effective among adolescents and pre-teens.
  80. 2021 Wednesday D: FOREIGN NEWS/OVERSEAS NEWS– while the Biden administration is urging the European Union to remove all restrictions imposed upon Iran, the EU is planning to hit the number one JIHAD NATION with new sanctions because of their misbehavior.  Good.   Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms penetrated Taiwanese airspace the other day and the Taipei air controllers reported that when the Chi-Com pilots were told to leave ROC airspace, one of the Chi-Com pilots said, “This is ours.”  Shoot the skunks down.  Invasion coming soon.  We think so.  Meanwhile, former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley is blasting the decrepit Biden administration over being soft on the People’s Republic of China (although lackluster U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken doubles down on his remarks of Chi-Com human rights violations such as the genocide of the Uighurs).  Beijing then responds, ‘wah, wah, wah, we are being discriminated against.’  F*** you guys.  Finally, H & M reports Q 1 losses and vows that it will rebuild its reputation in communist China after last year raising concerns over mistreatment of Uighur and other minorities in the PRC in Xinjiang Province.  This is why nothing will improve what with too many spineless countries and businesses.
  81. 2021 Wednesday E: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– Hunter Biden- son of Joe Biden- says that he probably ‘should not have taken a job with Burisma.’  Uh, okay.  Finally got the crack out of your brain and see the error of your ways?  Meanwhile, Congressman Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district, is beset with what appears to be a false flag operation- most likely being run out of the DCCC- to tie him to transporting an underage girl across stateliness.  We watched an interview with the congressman and Fox News’ Tucker Carlson last night and we concur- it was a strange interview but not because of Congressman Gaetz but because Tucker sometimes seems to have difficulties processing what people are saying to him.  Ah, well, we won’t pass judgment until we hear the complete story.  Elsewhere, it’s Day 3 of the trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin, on trial for the death of thug, George Floyd.
  82. 2021 Wednesday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– Facebook and Instagram banned a recent interview between Lara Trump and President Donald J. Trump.  Sad.  Next, beached whale of a governor, Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Gov, aka the Gropin’ Gov, just did a complete 180 and signed into a law legalizing recreational pot in the Empire State.  Not that long ago, “Killer Cuomo” did not want to see legalized pot in his state but as he continues to appear shakier and shakier by the day, the guy will do anything to cling to his job.  Can someone somewhere find photos of this moron in BLACK FACE?  That would be the trifecta!  Next, down in Georgia, an equally shaky governor, Brian Kemp, says that the NEW voting laws slams the Democrats’ power grab with H.R. 1.   Moving on, the Wisconsin State Supreme Court strikes down Governor Tony Evers’ demand for the mask mandate to continue ad infinitum.  Good for you!  Finally, the WOKE Pentagon reverses President Donald J. Trump’s tranny ban and welcomes ALL trannys and other aberrant behavior people to join its ranks.      
  83. 2021 Wednesday G: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 128,421,931 confirmed cases, +633,914, 2,807,094  confirmed deaths, +12,673, and 72,860,502 confirmed recoveries, +359,322.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,613,592 confirmed cases, up 64,157 from yesterday’s reporting, 556,487 confirmed deaths, UP 910, and 118,271,487 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.[xiii] 
  84. 2021 Wednesday H: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 229,277 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.  
  85. 2021 Wednesday I: 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: 3,667,039 confirmed cases, 59,138 confirmed deaths (less than yesterday’s), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,052,433 confirmed cases, 33,337 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 29,689 confirmed cases, 459 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 365,867 confirmed cases, 5,302 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Michigan, the home of Governor “Gravel Gertie Gretchen” Whitmer: currently, they have 739,078 confirmed cases, 17,100 confirmed deaths, but sadly, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 833,040 confirmed cases, 6,203 confirmed deaths, and 819,564 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).   Let’s look at one other country- Morocco, home of perhaps the most libertarian Arab society: 496,097 cases of the virus, 8,818 confirmed deaths and 483,363 confirmed recoveries.[xiv]    
  86. 2021 Wednesday J:   STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 32,981.55, DOWN 85.41 points (-0.26%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,246.87, UP 201.48 points (+1.54%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,972.89, UP 14.34 points (+0.36%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $59.60 per barrel, +0.46 (+0.78%).  The price of GOLD is $1,706.60 per troy oz., -7.20 (-0.42%) while the price of SILVER is $24.46 per troy ounce, -0.08 (-0.31%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,190.10 per troy oz, -1.40 (-0.12%) while the price of COPPER is $3.99 per pound, -0.01 (-0.21%).[xv]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,624.50 per troy oz, -0.50 (-0.02%).[xvi] The price of RHODIUM is $26,250.00 per troy oz., -650.00 (-2.42%).[xvii]    Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.55 Chinese yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.42.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.   In Burundian Franc, one greenback equals 1944.75.[xviii]  
  87. 2021 Wednesday K: 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 $3.902 per gallon, $2.860 in Florida, $3.680 in Hawaii, and $3.329 in Washington state.[xix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,116,714,678,561 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xx]  Cloward and Piven running amok. 
  88. 2021 Wednesday L: Congressman Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district and the House Minority Leader, said today that ‘House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi genuinely wants to get Congresswoman Marionnette Miller-Meeks, R-IA 2nd congressional district out of office so she can cement her grip on power.  Currently, her control is among the slimmest margins ever and if border Blue Dog Democrats begin defecting to the GOP camp, she is going to have one hell of a time getting her Maoist agenda pushed through.  Elsewhere, a judge ruled that the Trump campaign’s NDA- non-disclosure agreements- are virtually unenforceable.   Next, we overlooked mentioning it yesterday but the “G-Man”- G. Gordon Liddy of Watergate fame as well as a longtime talk radio host died at age 90.  God bless you, “G-Man!”  Elsewhere, Congressman Scott Perry, R-PA 10th congressional district says there’s “No way” Joe Biden’s infrastructure plan will get bipartisan support.  Finally, the Cancel Culture is canceling two episodes of SpongeBob SquarePants as one episode features the clam pandemic and the other one a character stealing ladies undergarments.  WTF? 
  89. 2021 Wednesday M: Having earlier mentioned House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s attempt to boot out Congresswoman Marionnette Miller-Meeks, Iowa State Senator Rita Hart, D-IA 49th senatorial district, has dropped her bid to have the senile old speaker of the House steal the election for her.  The people of Iowa were extremely angry with her for trying to steal a certified election.  Elsewhere, it would appear that ALL of the perps committing hate crimes against Asian-Americans are BLACK AMERICANS.  Two recent beatings of Asian-Americans caught on camera were committed by black men.  One is in custody, the other one is being sought by law enforcement.  We speculate that the Democrats are paying one portion of their identity politics base to go out and attack another, lesser-liked member, i.e., the Asians, to commit HATE CRIMES.  The Democrats are the master puppeteers.  Finally, Joe Biden is giving us a NEW Civilian Climate Corps.  Going to be loads of losers flocking to that crap-assed organization.  Greta Thunberg-like wannabes, screaming at EVERYONE:  “YOU ARE KILLING THE PLANET!” F**k them.
  90. 2021 Wednesday N: Here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3547 with a $33 million pot on the line: 04, 26, 36, 37, 42, and Mega 05.  Out of 113,541 winning tickets, the highest winners were THREE people who had FIVE numbers but no Mega for a prize of $13,076 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold in (1) Primm Valley Lotto, Nipton, CA 93264; (2) Shell, West Hills, CA 93107; and (3) Worton’s Market, Georgetown, CA 95634.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #833 with a $20 million jackpot awaiting some lucky person- 03, 10, 44, 55, 68, and Power 24.  Out of 41,878 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Powerball for a prize of $2,656,980.  Out of 41,878 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Powerball for a prize of $2,656,980. The top winning ticket in California was sold at the Circle K in Temecula, California 92592.
  91. 2022 Thursday: Stick around…

[i] Observed in Arizona, California, Colorado, Michigan, New Mexico, Nevada, Texas, Utah, Washington, and Wisconsin.

[ii] We hope to do the music of Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, as well as Alpert’s solo career, somewhere around 2035.  We hope you will remain with us.

[iii] 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.

[iv] See previous footnote.

[v] We are not sure when we will present the music of Supertramp, but we hope to do it within the next year or so.  You will not want to miss this group, that we can tell you.

[vi] We are not sure when AC/DC will be in the works, but you bet they will be at some point, possibly in 2027-2028.

[vii] Sometime within the next decade, we hope to present the music of classic rockers Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters, and numerous others.  We know you will enjoy the presentation so please; remain vigilant for the day we do.

[viii] 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.

[ix] We promoted the music of the Jimi Hendrix Experience and of Jimi Hendrix, beginning on Sunday, 22-December-2013 through Thursday, 16-January-2014.  Look for them and add them to your collection.

[x] We hope to promote the music of the Doobie Brothers sometime before 2030.  We hope you will remain vigilant for the day when we do.

[xi] Something else of interest are the side effects connected to the various vaccines, particularly the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, the one that uses fetal tissues from aborted fetuses for both testing and manufacturing such as the elderly man who THREE DAYS post his final vaccination, his skin turned bright red and began peeling off his body.  Now this sounds rather ‘satanic’ to us so there is NO flipping way anyone working at the AICPENDBLOG.COM will ever get the J & J vaccine.  EVIL.

[xii] However, most of the victims were either seniors, the disabled, the chronically ill, and the obese or overweight.  Stats also show that hardly anyone died from the flu.  Amazing how that works…

Peter Navarro is correct: the AMAZING Dr. Tony “Goggles” Fauci is indeed a sociopath- Fauci needs to shut the hell up…NOW!

61. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, MARCH 02, 2022

1897 Tuesday: President Grover Cleveland vetoed legislation that would have required a literacy test for immigrants entering the country, which would have been good- especially in 2021-2022. That’s Democrats for you.

Trump president.   Speaking of Trump, the GOP establishment is desperate to thwart him from winning the 2016 GOP presidential nomination.
  62. 2017 Thursday: Much to the horror of President Donald J. Trump and to Trump’s voters, new Attorney-General Jeff Sessions recuses himself from the Russian collusion scam investigation saying that he had ‘met with the Russian ambassador.’  Huh.  Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, and numerous other Democrats ALL had met with the Russian ambassador on far too many occasions yet there we were, the beginning of a fraudulent investigation that pitted American against American.  Shame.

  67. 2021 Tuesday A: Yet another woman comes out and accuses rapidly sinking New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo of behaving in an indecent sexual manner.  It’s gotten to the point that the so-called “Love Gov” has had to offer a half-assed apology of sorts, claiming he’s just a ‘joker,’ that he ‘likes to horse around’ and other such bull crap.  The “Lov Gov” has also hired a criminal defense attorney now that it appears he is in real trouble over his shenanigans with sending COVID-19-infected patients back into the Empire State’s nursing homes where they murdered thousands of elderly and vulnerable people.  Cuomo is in trouble for his executive order that set this horrendous crime in motion, one in which the ill made others sick and then when they were going to DIE, they bundled them into medical transports, took them BACK to the hospitals where they added to the numbers of Chi-Vi deaths in the hospitals and covered up what Cuomo did to the poor people in the nursing homes.  We hope to see this POS wearing an orange jumpsuit busting up rocks soon.
  68. 2021 Tuesday B: The state of Oklahoma is seeking to get the National Rifle Association to relocate to their state.  Meanwhile, the NRA says that the Biden administration wants to bypass the committee process in Congress so it can force harsh gun control measures onto the American people.
  69. 2021 Tuesday C: A recent poll says at least 52-percent of the Grand Old Party want President Donald J. Trump to be the standard-bearer in 2024.  Meanwhile, Wyoming state Senator Anthony Bouchard has officially announced he is going to primary highly unpopular GOP Congresswoman Liz Cheney in 2022.  Unless the Democrats rally to the side of this RINO, her head is going to be gracing the top of the congressman’s fireplace. 
  70. 2021 Tuesday D: Congressman Jim Jordan, R-OH, calls for a House probe into the “Cancel Culture.” 
  71. 2021 Tuesday E: A recent poll says that Joe Biden has a 61-percent approval rate.  The poll obviously is bulls**t folks because very few have seen the ‘46th president’ stumbling around much less have heard anything he says.  In an era of Deep Fakes, most people except the disciples of all things ‘news’ has seen or heard this illusive guy.  He is akin to trolls living beneath the bridge, pixies and fairies roaming the woods, sprites cavorting about the trees, NO one has seen or heard from him so please, don’t try to scam us with bulls**t polls.
  72. 2021 Tuesday F: Some people are hopeful the U.S. Supreme Court will weigh in on election laws in Arizona that could affect voting nationwide.  Don’t expect much, folks, the Dems don’t need to stack the U.S. Supreme Court when they have John Roberts as chief justice.  What a failure, what a disgrace, what a letdown the man is. 
  73. 2021 Tuesday G: Reports along the southern border say that the tidal wave of illegal alien teens and toddlers swarming across the border is straining facilities with which to house them.   We believe Joe Biden should continue building the wall, that anti-vehicle and anti-personnel trenches should be constructed, barbed wire, minefields, and other obstacles laid in plus the seeding of the Rio Grande with baby alligators scooped up from Florida, Mississippi, and Louisiana.  What is occurring on the southern border is a crime and whether you love you some illegal aliens or you don’t, what is happening to these people is inhumane, horrendous, and evil.  Still, the federal government could pay American citizens $2,500 per month to take in one illegal alien brat. 
  74. 2021 Tuesday H: Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is expanding access to the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine to all first-responders, law enforcement, K-12 students, and to all who are vulnerable to the Chi-Com Virus.  In other interesting news, Senator Mitt Romney is recovering from a fall that left him black and blue he suffered while visiting family in Boston.  We remember a similar incident when Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-NV, turned up all beat up and he claimed exercise equipment got the best of him.  It later turned out that one of his brothers got the ‘best of him.’
  75. 2021 Tuesday I: Democratic lawmakers are forging ahead with a plan with which to make Puerto Rico a state.   We already know they’re trying to make the District of Columbia a state which is bull crap.  D.C. was created so that the nation’s capital would NOT be in any particular state.  Ah, well, we say if we’re going to make territories and possessions into states, might as well make the U.S. Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Marianas, and even Midway Island and the Johnson Atoll into states, too.  We say, WTF?  Imagine ALL the new senators with which, the Democrats could pack the U.S. Senate.  Hell, pretty soon various counties will be breaking apart from states and becoming states of their own.  Again, why NOT?  
  76. 2021 Tuesday J: An SUV in Southern California close to the Mexican border crashed into a semi-tractor-trailer rig.  Inside the SUV were 27 people- ILLEGAL FLIPPING ALIENS, PEOPLE- 15 of whom died in the mishap.  Some say ‘they got what they deserved’ while others say if we had secure borders, illegal aliens stuffed into ‘clown cars’ would not be careening all over the highways, crashing into cars and trucks driven by Americans.  Joe Biden, DEFEND THE F**KING BORDERS!  We don’t want to see people killed on  the nation’s highways but until you act against coyotes and begin imprisoning- if not shooting them on the spot– these kinds of tragedies are going to continue.  ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
  77. 2021 Tuesday K: In other Joe Biden news, the ‘Biden administration’ is now looking into how to give reparations to black folks because of slavery in the past.  The question is, will ALL blacks qualify for ‘reparations,’ i.e., the modern-day equivalent of ’40 acres and a mule’ updated or will it just be blacks who can prove descent from a slave?  Will all NON-BLACK people, i.e., whites, Latinos, Asians, and Native Americans going to foot the bill or are just white folks going to foot this bill?  In interracial marriages, are white spouses going to be able to scrawl their names on a check and hand it over to the black spouse (or give them the credit card) and will that be the end of it?  What about interracial people who boast numerous bloodlines, how is the federal government going to determine this?  It is insane.  Will the government also inform the recipients of the SLAVE REPARATIONS that they will have to pay taxes on the money they receive?   NOTE- here is what WE say: like the $15 per hour minimum wage, this will never happen because once it does, the issue is removed from the arsenal of leftwing issues, NEVER to be used again.  IF you look at history, answer this question, with honesty- how many problems do liberals ever truly solve?
  78. 2021 Tuesday L: New York state lawmakers have stripped Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the “Love Gov” of his pandemic dictatorial powers.  Whoa.  Dreadful things are coming your way there “Killer Cuomo.”
  79. 2021 Tuesday M: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 114,706,724 confirmed cases, +356,113, 2,544,852, confirmed deaths, +7,987, and 64,781,391 confirmed recoveries, +250,043.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 28,998,700 confirmed cases, up 62,539 from yesterday’s reporting, 521,441 confirmed deaths, UP 1,706, and 16,992,502 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.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile drooling POS.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 191,256 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, STOP SENDING U.S. vaccines overseas, use them here at home you reprobate scumbag.  NOT OUR PRESIDENT!
  80. 2021 Tuesday N: 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: 3,573,588 confirmed cases, 52,521 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 nearly a week.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 343,746 confirmed cases, 5,038 confirmed deaths (same as yesterday), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Kansas: currently, they have 397,436 confirmed cases, 4,743 confirmed deaths, and 312,758 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 779,958 confirmed cases, 5,760 confirmed deaths, and 735,850 confirmed recoveries.
  81. 2021 Tuesday O: In one of the greatest pieces of news we have had in a long time, Governor Gregg Abbott of Texas says the Lone Star State will be open for business in one week.  ALL businesses, no matter who or what they are, may reopen and even better, the mask mandate is NO more.  Of course, liberals are wetting their panties, but it is what it is, America is coming back.  As soon as we evict losers like Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Lov Gov, of New York, and Frankenstein-headed Governor Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan (all she is missing are the bolts on her neck), the country can reopen wide, and we can move beyond the Chinese Virus.  In other Chi-Vi news, American diplomats going to communist China on behalf of the Biden administration are being forced to undergo the fearsome Chi-Com COVID-19 anal swab.  Tell them to go f**k themselves.
  82. 2021 Tuesday P: Speaking of the Chi-Vi, aka COVID-19, the Catholic Archdiocese of New Orleans is opposed to the Johnson & Johnson Wuhan Virus vaccine because  it uses cells derived from abortions in both its manufacture and its testing.  IF the Catholic Church is against the Johnson & Johnson vaccine then we are against it, too.  Speaking of the J & J vaccine, with only 3.7 million does offered, Merck is stepping in to convert two of its U.S. manufacturing facilities to begin mass-producing and packaging of the vaccine.  As we said, we can wait. 
  83. 2021 Tuesday Q:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,391.52, DOWN 143.99 points (-0.46%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,358.79, DOWN 230.04 points (-1.69%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,870.29, DOWN 31.53 points (-0.81%).  The price of GOLD is $1,732.80 per troy oz., -0.80 (-0.05%) while the price of SILVER is $26.80 per troy ounce, -0.08 (-0.29%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,202.20 per troy oz, -12.20 (-1.0\0%) while the price of COPPER is $4.19 per pound, -0.03 (-0.78%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,368.60 per troy oz, +19.60 (+0.83%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $59.68 per barrel, -0.07 (-0.12%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.62.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000021.   In Taiwanese dollars, one greenback equals 27.85. 
  84. 2021 Tuesday R: The House Democrats continue slamming one bill after another.  Today, they introduced a wide-ranging (and unbelievably expensive, we suspect) climate bill which means MORE slush fund cash for Democrats to stick their hands in.   In other news, FBI Director Christopher Wray won’t release the cause of Capitol Hill police officer Brian Sicknick.  Even the family does not know the cause of their husband’s and father’s death.  Many believe he suffered a stroke on January 6, 2021, when he was blasted in the face with bear repellant.  The left wants everyone to believe that Officer Sicknick had his head stoved in with a fire extinguisher, but no evidence of that occurrence exists.  Sadly, he was quickly cremated, and his autopsy records sealed.  Left-wing governments and Islamic extremists ALWAYS require martyrs.[vii]   In other interesting news, far-left hatemonger Neera Tanden is OUT as the next White House Office of Management and Budget boss.  Her past hateful speech in social media came back to bite her on her skinny ass.  Ouch!   Finally, Democrats want to end qualified immunity for police officers.
  85. 2021 Tuesday S: Senator Martin Heinrich, D-NM, and Congressman Darren Soto, D-FL, have authored a bill to fast-track Puerto Rican statehood.  As we have said, just give statehood to Guam, U.S. Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Northern Marianas, Johnston Atoll, Midway Island, and other specks in the Pacific Ocean we claim.  Imagine all the senators the Democrats could have.   Meanwhile, Senator Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says, he has the votes to pass the Biden Porkulus $1.9 trillion COVID-19 Relief Bill but hey- still NO $2,000 checks per U.S. citizen. 
  86. 2021 Tuesday T: The National Security Commission says that if the United States does not immediately pick up the pace, the Chi-Coms are going to win the race for artificial intelligence and can then use it to subjugate the rest of the world.  We had better get our act in order.  Elsewhere, the Nigerian military frees 279 kidnapped schoolgirls, seized by Boko Haram from Jangebe Town.  There are questions as to whether the Nigerians paid a ransom for them or not.  Meanwhile, Boko Haram attacked a favorite target of theirs, the town of Dikwa where they have a military outpost and humanitarian aid.  Apparently, the jihadists overran the town.  No word on casualties.  
  87. 2021 Tuesday U: In other Chris Wray news, the FBI director said that ‘several of the more than 300 people arrested for the Capitol Hill Riot of January 06, 2021, have ties to right-wing militias.’  He also said that since he became director in 2017, white extremism threats have more than tripled.  He also said there is NO evidence of fraud in the 2020 Presidential Election.  In Texas, a judge was arrested along with some other scumbags for committing election fraud in that state. 
  88. 2021 Tuesday V: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1638 with a jackpot of $43 million on the line: 04, 08, 13, 34, 64, and Mega 18.  Out of 52,291 winning tickets, the highest were THREE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $4,732 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The tertiary effort by the Band- “Stage Fright” came out on August 17, 1970, and was a wonderful addition to the band’s growing discography.  Once again, the band featured the lineup 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).   The album contained two big hits- the title track and “The Shape I’m In.”  We hope you will seek this one out and consider adding it to your collection as there’s nothing better than this glorious group.  Ask anyone who’s seen them in their heyday, and you will understand just how legendary and amazing they were.  You will love them just as we do.  Enjoy.

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

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

ENDNOTES:

[i] We definitely hope to present the music of ALL the classic Motown bands- including the famed Four Tops- sometime within the next decade.  Please, stay tuned for further developments.

[ii] We began promoting the music of the Velvet Underground starting on Tuesday, 18-March-2014 through Wednesday, 09-April-2014.  At the time we promoted this famous New York City rock band, we failed to share the music of the man himself, Lou Reed.  We hope to rectify that mistake when we return to promoting American bands again.  Thank you for your patience.

[iii] Not sure when we will begin promoting the music of Todd Rundgren but one day, we sure as heck will so please stay tuned.

[iv] We should have promoted the music of Paris at the same time we did Fleetwood Mac.  Sadly, we will promote Paris when we do Jethro Tull, Wild Turkey, and Blodwyn Pig.  Paris created two fine albums in the 1970s.  Besides Sales, the band featured guitarist/vocalist Bob Welch and bassist/keyboardist Glenn Cornick.

[v] We are not sure when AC/DC will be in the works but you bet they will be at some point, possibly in 2027-2028. 

[vi] Director Wray is one of the most adept practitioners of the fine art of NEVER answering questions.  It should shock everyone concerned how this man seemingly does not know very much about any topic at hand other than that white people are generally the culprits.  Much like Jen Psaki, he either is too ill-informed or unfit for the job held. 

[vii] The Soviets had their Pavlik Morozov, a boy who ratted out his parents as not being down with the struggle.  In every square in every town and city, statues of Pavlik Morozov were erected. 

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

50. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 2022

  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!

Trump from December 06, 2011, to January 06, 2018.
  57. 2019 Sunday: In the AFC Wild Card Game, the Los Angeles Chargers hold off a rally from the Baltimore Ravens to defeat the home team by a score of 23-17 while in the NFC Wild Card Game the Philadelphia Eagles defeated home team the Chicago Bears by a score of 16-15.  The game came down to the wire and the Bears appeared as though they were going to win the game with a field goal.  As the kicker kicked the football, which soared through the uprights, the Eagles called a time out, and when play resumed, the kicker’s second kick hit the upright and then the crossbar allowing Philadelphia to hold on and win the game.
  58. 2019 Sunday A: As the federal government shutdown continues, President Donald J.

  59. 2020 Monday: At the Golden Globes, actress Michelle Williams celebrates her abortion before a likeminded crowd of liberal losers and activists.  What the hell is up with the Pro-Death movement?  Killing the unborn is the most sadistic, evil thing one can do.  Yet, these pro-Satanists celebrate it like they’re killing cockroaches.  Shame.  Meanwhile, U.S. Senator Kelly Loeffler enters the world’s greatest deliberative body on today’s date representing the Peach State.  Elsewhere, ever-disloyal John Bolton says, ‘I’m willing to testify at President Donald J. Trump’s impeachment trial.’  Perfect example of a Deep State apparatchik.   
  60. 2021 Wednesday: Millions of patriots arrived in the nation’s capital today to support President Trump.  The president spoke to them and rallied the crowd.  Then, the certification of the 2020 Presidential Election began today.  Disputes arose early over the first state in question- Arizona- which sent both chambers of Congress to debate the election fraud.  Of course, the RINOs and their Democratic Party taskmasters say, ‘NO election fraud occurred’ while the country understands that ‘yes, indeed, loads of fraud did occur and needs to be addressed.’  Even California’s 55 electoral votes are being called into question due to millions of illegal aliens voting.  Finally, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, called for an ‘emergency 10-day audit of the election’ saying BOTH parties should welcome such an audit, so their voters accept the election results.
  61. 2021 Wednesday A: Next, as the chambers were debating Arizona’s election results, the crowd marched to the Capitol Building.  Then, a segment of the crowd erupted into violence and stormed the building itself sending lawmakers and their staffs into the basement for security.  We heard of gunshots having occurred inside.  Folks, it is clear that the LEFT is pulling out ALL stops here and have infiltrated the peaceful protesters with Antifa and Black Lives Matter human refuse.  People screaming, “TRUMP WON,” and other things favorable to the president to give the impression it’s his people doing the rioting.  This is straight out of Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” and it’s clear that the Democrats are behind all of this so they can continue the narrative that ‘President Trump is launching a coup.’  What a flipping mess but you must give the Democratic-Socialists credit as they know how to cause mob violence, misdirect blame, and topple elections.  Our country is in trouble.

  58. 2020 Friday C: As more and more information comes to light about how compromised Congressman Eric Swalwell is thanks to him having had a long-running affair with a Chi-Com intelligence agent, Christine Fang, aka Fang-Fang, former DNI Ric Grenell tells Newsmax that ‘Beijing has its tendrils deep into the United States, going after politicians and businessmen-and-women.’  It must stop and Rep. Swalwell must face expulsion from Congress and should be prosecuted as was former FBI agent Richard Hanssen who is doing time in federal lockup for having spied for the Soviet Union and then for Russia.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Supreme Court rules that Muslim men can sue the FBI for placing them onto the No-Fly List.  Elsewhere, the Lone Star State is considering returning to being the independent nation it originally was as lawmakers seek to hold a secession vote that is known as ‘Texit.’  
  59. 2020 Friday D: The U.S. Supreme Court of the United States rejects the multi-state lawsuit headed by Texas regarding the 2020 Presidential Election.  Many believe it’s over now although some still hold out hope for a different outcome even after today’s mind-blowing hearing into election fraud in Wisconsin.   One never knows but for the pro-Trumpers, it’s time to accept that the Chi-Coms, their allies, and their Democratic Party gofers stole the election and put it into the hands of enfeebled “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his running mate, Kamala Harris.  Be careful what you wish for, Chi-Coms, be careful about you what wish…speaking of the rejection, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi says that ‘House GOP members who signed onto the bid- including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy- brought dishonor upon the august body.’  Madam Speaker, every day you draw breath, you bring dishonor to the country.  Shame on YOU.
  60. 2020 Friday E: Speaking of the Chi-Coms, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 70,025,535 confirmed cases, +541,680, 1,590,323, confirmed deaths, +10,317, and 45,070,225 confirmed recoveries, +381,762.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 16,004,359 confirmed cases, up 289,128 from yesterday’s reporting, 298,796 confirmed deaths, UP 3,346, and 7,284,291 confirmed recoveries, UP 61,479.
  61. 2020 Friday F: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 1,490,879 confirmed cases, 20,636 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 19,315 confirmed cases, 269 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 201,179 confirmed cases, 3,075 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: New Hampshire: currently, they have 29,460 confirmed cases, 590 confirmed deaths, and 22,046 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 353,269 confirmed cases, 2,969 confirmed deaths, and 333,900 confirmed recoveries.
  62. 2020 Friday G: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 30,046.37, UP 47.11 points (+0.16%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  12,377.87, DOWN 27.94 points (-0.23%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,663.46, DOWN 4.64 points (-0.13%).  Price of GOLD: $1,843.50 per troy oz., -0.10 (-0.01%).  Here is the price of SILVER: $24.08 per troy oz., -0.017 (-0.07%).  Price of PLATINUM: $1,017.20 per troy oz., -2.40 (-0.10%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,333.10 per troy oz., -4.80 (-0.47%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.53 per #, +0.0065 (+0.18%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $46.56, -0.01 (-0.02%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.54 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.83 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.86 Afghan Afghani.
  63. 2020 Friday H: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1615 with a jackpot of $376 million up for grabs: 19, 31, 37, 55, 67, and Mega 25.  Out of 88,153 winning tickets, the highest winners were four people who had four numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $5,912 apiece.
  64. 2020 Friday I: Here is where we were one year ago: Folks, we encourage everyone to stick around to discover whatever the Chi-Coms and their flunkies in the Democratic Party- along with the Canucks, the Iranians, and the Russians are up to today.  You know they’re up to no good, sons-of-bi****s.  Here’s a good one: Chi-Com state-run media blasts the U.S. in general and the Trump administration in particular for criticizing its ‘stellar record on human rights.’  Chi-Coms, you are akin to the Nazis.         
  65. 2021 Saturday: Stick around…

  58. 2018 Sunday: In the Florida U.S. Senate race, Democrat Bill Nelson tearfully concedes to outgoing Republican Governor Rick Scott.  Good riddance.   Meanwhile, as firefighters continue battling the Camp Fire, the possibility that rain might come brings sighs of relief.  None of these fires are unnecessary, if only the frigging state of California would manage her forests properly instead of making unfair demands on PG&E to go to renewable sources by 2025 and would stop pouring every extra cent into CalPERS and into the farce of California High-Speed Rail, one of the greatest self-enrichment schemes for both the Democratic Party and their backers in Beijing.[ix] 
  59. 2019 Monday: On this date, Chinese authorities on the mainland in conjunction with law enforcement in Hong Kong are working hard to bring the illegal protests to an end.  Currently, the authorities have surrounded a university in the former British crown colony and are trying to arrest every rioter seeking to escape their dragnet.  Meanwhile, Mayor Pete Buttigieg[x] of South Bend, Indiana, seeking to win the 2020 nomination of the Democratic Party finds himself leading the polls in Iowa on this date.  Wow.    This, of course, sets off his opponents seeking the nomination and far-left loser Julian Castro heads to the mics to blast Buttigieg.  Elsewhere, Democratic Congressman Eric Swalwell, the first to abandon the race for the 2020 Democratic Party presidential nomination becomes the butt of jokes around the world.  While being interviewed by Chris Matthews on MSNBC, the congressman in mid-sentence is heard to rip a LOUD FART[xi] on live TV.  He denies he did it, but the evidence is there.        
  60. 2020 Wednesday: Although most major news outlets, Democrats, and anti-Trump RINOs have called the election for “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his sidekick, “Kooky Kamala” Harris, Las Vegas bookmakers have not.  Meanwhile, votes for President Donald J. Trump continue turning up in various battleground states but in Michigan, a setback occurred when county election workers first refused to certify the elections in the Detroit area until they came under verbal assault and threatened physical assault.  They quickly certified the results and sent them up the ladder to the Michigan secretary of state.  Wow.  Elsewhere, the House GOP leaders vote to retain the same officers in the lower chamber of Congress while initial reports say the Dems might keep current House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi in her position.  How this can be true after they lost beaucoup seats after being promised of the MASSIVE VICTORIES to come is beyond us.  However, what is also beyond us is the fact that the GOP knocked out one Democrat House incumbent after another and we are still to believe that President Donald J. Trump lost his re-election bid?  Say what?
  61. 2020 Wednesday A: The Department of Justice charges seven people for committing fraud on the U.S. government by scamming the Paycheck Protection Program out of $16 million.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump fires Christopher Krebs, a Trump appointee to head the elections security division at the Department of Homeland Security after he proclaimed, ‘NO election shenanigans have occurred in the 2020 Presidential Election.’  Elsewhere, CNN’s famed foreign correspondent, the highly biased Christine Amanpour expressed regret for having used the name of “President Donald J. Trump and his followers” in connection with Kristallnacht.”  That’s nice, Ms. Amanpour, you anti-Semitic bigot.   Finally, we learn that the Durham Probe into the Democrats, the Russians, the Chi-Coms, and the Obama administration continues.  IF Trump should lose, so what?  Speaking of President Donald J. Trump, he is doing his best to withdraw 25,000 American troops from the Middle East before the year’s end.
  62. 2020 Wednesday B: Pfizer- not to be outdone by Moderna- says their COVID-19 vaccine is 95-percent or more effective.  However, given billions of dollars by the U.S. government to develop the vaccine in record time to provide 100 million doses of the vaccine by year’s end has now reneged and says it will only provide 20 million doses while sending the other 80 million doses abroad.  Good Lord!  WTF is wrong with American companies?  Oh, wait, Pfizer donated BIG BUCKS to the campaign of “Pro-China Joe” Biden and “Kooky Kamala” Harris.  Go figure.
  63. 2020 Wednesday C: Back to the Chi-Coms and their Wuhan Virus pandemic, here are the latest stats: 56,024,130 confirmed cases, UP by 690,756 cases, 1,345,639 confirmed deaths, UP by 13,249 deaths, and 35,969,240 confirmed recoveries, UP by 356,120 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 11,546,233 confirmed cases, UP by 177,590 new cases, 253,423 confirmed deaths, UP by 2,100 new deaths, and 6,095,958 confirmed recoveries, UP by 58,978 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt POSs).  Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 326,200 confirmed cases, 2,738 confirmed deaths, and 315,314 confirmed recoveries. 
  64. 2020 Wednesday D: 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: 1,058,125 confirmed cases, 18,364 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 16,755 confirmed cases, 222 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION OF confirmed recoveries anymore- what is up with YOU, Gov. Ige, you Democrat hack.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 140,942 confirmed cases, 2,686 confirmed deaths, but like California, the palooka-faced 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, Virginia, the home of Democratic corruption, elected officials who dress in blackface or who have committed sexual assaults: 208,833 confirmed number of cases, 3,860 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed number of recoveries- thank you, Governor Ralph “KKK” Northam for concealing the number of recoveries- yet another left-wing liberal POS politician.
  65. 2020 Wednesday E: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 29,438.42, DOWN 344.93 points (-1.16%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,801.60, DOWN 97.74 points (-0.82%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,567.79, DOWN 41.74 points (-1.16%).  The price of GOLD is $1,871.00 per troy oz., -2.90 (-0.15%) while the price of SILVER is $24.40 per troy ounce, -0.53 (-0.22%).  The price of PLATINUM is $948.10 per troy oz, -2.80 (-0.29%) while the price of COPPER is $3.20 per pound, -0.002 (-0.06%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,354.00 per troy oz, +27.50 (+1.18%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.62 per barrel, -0.20 (-0.48%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.56 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.30.
  66. 2020 Wednesday F: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Super Lotto #3509 with a jackpot of $7 million at stake: 01, 02, 16, 27, 32, and Mega 18.  One person had FIVE numbers but no Mega for a prize of $27,123.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #795 with a jackpot of $179 million: 04, 05, 17, 43, 52, and Powerball 05.  The highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $36,296. 
  67. 2020 Wednesday G: Running unopposed for another term as speaker of the House, Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi wins to the shock of many.  It demonstrates how chicken-s**t the Democrats in the House are that they are afraid of challenging the 80-year-old, mostly senile, incoherent speaker seeing as how she has produced the slimmest ‘majority’ in the history of the U.S. House of Representatives losing 12 incumbent seats and gaining NONE.  Democrats boot her out NOW!
  68. 2021 Thursday: Stay tuned for tonight’s Thursday Night Football matchup: the New England Patriots at the Atlanta Falcons.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

After floundering about for a while, Sandy Denny’s husband discovered- like other family members of deceased artists- that the family of Sandy Denny along with her record label compiled a ‘best of’ collection for the ill-fated artist that came out on June 15, 1987: “The Best of Sandy Denny.”  The album features a collection of 16 glorious tracks running from her earliest days through her association with Fairport Convention to Fotheringay to Fairport Convention again and onto her final solo career.  We hope you will investigate this one for yourselves, give it a good listen, and then consider adding it to your growing collection of music from this devoted vocalist and songwriter.  You will be so glad you did.  Enjoy.

PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.

Wednesday, November 18, 2020, Today in History Blog Post:   

Everything the Democrats claim as TRUTH is little more than a LIE- NO, they did not win the 2020 Presidential Election, NO, humankind is NOT RESPONSIBLE for Climate Change, and the Chi-Coms are NOT our friends

Wednesday, November 18, 2020, Today in History:  

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…


Thursday, November 18, 2021:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We promoted the music of Blue Cheer- one of the wildest acid rock bands of all time, beginning on Sunday, 25-November-2012 through Wednesday, 12-December-2012.  We hope you seek this famed band out and add them to your collection; you will be glad you did.

[ii] We began promoting the music of this famed psychedelic band- Strawberry Alarm Clock- beginning on Tuesday, 03-April-2012 through Saturday, 08-April-2012. Please check them out- you will enjoy them.

[iii] We began promoting the music of Santana on Tuesday, 28-August-2012 through Tuesday, 23-October-2012.  We hope you will seek the music of this famed man and his band out wherever you can find them.

[iv] When we begin doing the music of the 1990s onward, you can bet that Metallica will be among the bands.  Others will include Nirvana, Stone Temple Pilots, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, and others so make sure you remain riveted to the glorious AICPENDBLOG.COM.  Thank you.

[v] We hope to promote the music of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, as well as of each member’s solo careers along with Crazy Horse within the next 5-7 years.  Please remain vigilant for when we do.

[vi] It does not require a genius to understand that every Republican president since Ronald Reagan has been the target of outraged Democrats who seek to overthrow the legal system and impeach every GOP president.  Time for this bulls**t to end.

[vii] These illegal protests in Hong Kong continue into 2019 and it is clear that they are out of control and need to be shut down.  Hong Kong is Chinese territory, and it should be clear to all that they have been quite patient in their response while awaiting the perpetrators to meet them halfway.

[viii] We are not sure when AC/DC will be in the works, but you bet they will be at some point, possibly in 2027-2028.

[ix] That’s right- we said it: the Chi-Coms provide many of the engineers involved in the project as well as lesser workers.  This is a criminal scam, and everyone knows it. 

[x] Mayor Pete is doing great with the Bath House vote but cannot attract black voters to his cause (and why would they join him?- editor’s note 2019).  We lovingly refer to Mayor Pete as “Little Queenie.”

[xi] Chris Matthews claims it was the sound of a coffee mug being scraped across the desk.  You be the judge: <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aKLn-qjlM_Y >

FOLKS, LET’S GIVE JOE A CHANCE!

278. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, OCTOBER 05, 2021

22. 1944 Thursday: The air war continues to rage over Berlin as RAF bombers appear over the capital at night while the U.S. Army Air Force conducts daylight bombings. Antiaircraft fire coursing into the sky from the infamous flak towers in the middle of the city account for many of the planes blasted out of the skies while the Luftwaffe gets credit for numerous others. Still, every bomb dropped is a moral victory for the Allies as Hitler and Joseph Goebbels said, “NO Allied bombs would ever fall on the mighty city.”

  49. 2016 Wednesday:  As Hurricane Matthew approaches the United States, the authorities urge 2 million people in the Carolinas, Georgia, and Florida to evacuate as the Cat 4 storm has already killed people in the Caribbean.  Meanwhile, the FBI announces that in August, they arrested a former NSA contractor who worked for Booz Allen Hamilton.  Harold Martin is charged with unlawful removal and retention of governmental documents.  No one knows if he handed the information over to foreign entities or governments.  The investigation continues…

  52. 2019 Saturday: The House Democrats demand documents regarding interactions between President Donald J.

  53. 2020 Monday:  Following President Donald J. Trump’s roundabout the Walter Reed Medical Center (where doctors are treating him for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu) yesterday, liberals continue wailing and groaning like banshees about his ‘lack of concern for the welfare of others.’  He drove around the block in a hermetically sealed vehicle with Secret Service agents wearing the recommended garb.  He wanted to thank his well-wishers. In New York City, Trump supporters took over 5th Avenue and blasted their support for the ailing president.  Didn’t moronic Governor Andrew Cuomo claim that ‘Trump would need an army if he wanted to show his face in New York?’  Well, there’s your army, you frigging dimwit. C’ est la vie.  Meanwhile, the Presidential Debate Commission is recommending that all participants and guests wear masks at all subsequent debates.  Elsewhere, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany announces that she, too, has tested positive for the Chi-Vi.  What is going on?  Who seeded the White House with the Chinese Virus?  Look to the kitchens, investigators, look to the kitchens… Finally, Anthony Scaramucci says that since Trump is sick, he ‘should drop out of the race.’  F-off Mooch!  
  54. 2020 Monday A: Following a weekend of terror over the president’s illness, the S&P 500 futures are beginning to show signs of calm. Good.  Meanwhile, Finland announces that nuclear disarmament talks between the United States and Russia will commence soon.  Where is the flipping Chi-Coms?   Elsewhere, Democratic Party presidential nominee “Pro-China Joe” Biden continues dissing the Green New Deal, saying instead that when elected, he will move forward with his $2 trillion Biden Plan that will jumpstart clean energy over the next four years.  What does AOC and her Squad of lunatics have to say about that?  On Newsmax, Joe DiGenova blasts the Biden Plan saying that in four years, President Donald J. Trump has made us energy independent and that our environment is cleaner now than it was when he assumed office.   
  55. 2020 Monday B: Regarding the Chi-Vi, Ireland says it may enact a second Wuhan Virus shutdown due to rising numbers, 110 per 100,000 citizens.  In New York City, Mayor Bill Di Blasio says he ‘is going to shutdown specific sections of the city where Bat Virus cases are rising,’ neighborhoods that are mostly Jewish.  Say what, Mr. anti-Semitic mayor?  
  56. 2020 Monday C: At 6:39 P.M. President Donald J. Trump walked out the front door of Walter Reed Medical Center.  Although not entirely out of the woods yet as his doctors said, he is on the mend and will be closely watched by physicians at the White House.   Self-proclaimed ‘conservative,’ and Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin, says via Tweet that taxpayer dollars should no longer go to funding the Walter Reed Medical Center and that Maryland should pull the medical license of Trump’s treating Dr. Sean Conley.  And these people claim to be ‘balanced.’

  59. 2020 Monday E:  Monday Night Football: two games tonight due to Chi-Vi postponement- early game: (15) New England Patriots, 10 (2-2) @ Kansas City Chiefs, 26 (4-0).   The late game is (16) Atlanta Falcons, 16 (0-4) @ Green Bay Packers, 30 (4-0) before the half.  Meanwhile, the Houston Texans, a WINLESS team after going into the playoffs last year fired General Manager and Coach Bill O’Brien after the 0-4 start.  It is what it is but folks, it’s an Xi Jinping Bat Flu year so give ‘em a break…
  60. 2021 Tuesday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 236,593,653 confirmed cases, +481,087, 4,831,604 confirmed deaths, +9,690 and 213,721,839 confirmed recoveries, +557,549.

We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[vi]   
  61. 2021 Tuesday A: JOE BIDEN TO DONALD J. TRUMP COVID-19 DEATHS- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 410,642 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop him.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump with 6,564 Xi Jinping Bat Flu deaths.  Congratulations, Joe, YOU are IT from this point forward and will be for the rest of your illegitimate time in office.   
  62. 2021 Tuesday B: COVID-19 STATISTICS in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 4,662,762 confirmed cases, 69,678 confirmed deaths, and 2,471,122 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 3,636,318 confirmed cases, 55,622 confirmed deaths, and 2,737,138 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 80,414 confirmed cases, 811 confirmed deaths, and 79,603 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 673,432 confirmed cases, 7,916 confirmed deaths, and 275,537 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Kentucky: they have 702,951 confirmed cases, 8,921 confirmed deaths, and 694,030 confirmed recoveries.[vii]

  64. 2021 Tuesday D: STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,314.67, UP 311.75 points (+0.92%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,433.83 UP 178.34 points (+1.25%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,345.72, UP 45.26 points (+1.05%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $78.85 per barrel, -0.08 (-0.09%).  The price of GOLD is $1,755.60 per troy oz., -5.40 (-0.31%) while the price of SILVER is $22.50 per troy ounce, -0.11 (-0.50%).  The price of PLATINUM is $948.60 per troy oz, -11.20 (-1.17%) while the price of COPPER is $4.14 per pound, -0.06 (-1.35%).[ix]  The price of PALLADIUM is $1,906.18 per troy oz., -7.41 (-0.39%).

  65. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE FOUR STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.414 per gallon, $3.047 in Florida, $4.101 in Hawaii, and $3.846 in Washington state.[xii]    Let us look at one other New Hampshire: $3.050.  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 second LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Iran: $0.227 per U.S. Gallon.[xiii] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,842,422,397,228 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xiv]  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 Philippines, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is United Arab Emirates with $32 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.
  66. 2021 Tuesday F: AFGHANISTAN CRISIS AND COLLAPSE NEWS- We learned today that following the vaccination of 50,000 Afghans in Afghanistan, the Biden regime is going to restart evacuation flights out of HKIA, people we know little to nothing about but whom the Biden regime wants to seed across the United States.  Thank you, Joe, thank you.  Speaking of the Afghan debacle, Republican senators are demanding a probe into the disastrous Afghan evacuations and resulting carnage at Hamid Karzai International Airport.
  67. 2021 Tuesday G: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE I- The state of Texas is gearing up for a possible surge of 60,000 illegals in the coming weeks.  Deploy troops to the border and begin shooting them.  A few thousand dollars’ worth of lead will do more than giving Central American nations and Mexico billions of dollars to halt the crisis.  We also must note that today marks Day No. 194 for the world-famous ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the mess on the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 101 since her sole visit to the border to do her job.  Where can we find NO SHOW jobs like the one, she has?
  68. 2021 Tuesday H: FOREIGN NEWS-OVERSEAS NEWS I- U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken arrived in France today to soothe over France’s hurt feelings over the loss of its $40 billion submarine deal with Australia.  Meanwhile, not to be outdone by the North Koreans, Russia test-fires its new hypersonic missiles, missiles the United States cannot stop.
  69. 2021 Tuesday I: COVID-19 UPDATES AND ADDITIONAL INFORMATION I- We learn today that Pfizer’s Chi-Vi vaccine loses 50-percent efficacy after six months which is why there is a BIG PUSH for perpetual boosters.  We also learned today that ahead of the Xi Jinping Never-Ending Pandemic, the Chi-Coms loaded up on polymerase chain reaction, aka PCR, tests because the communist government knew what was coming down the pike.  Next, a court rules that Arizona cannot apply federal COVID-19 funds to fund ‘anti-mask grants.’
  70. 2021 Tuesday J: HEALTH AND MEDICAL ALERTS- Ahead of next year’s coming retribution against the Democrats in the 2022 Mid-Term Elections, NIH Director Dr. Francis Collins is going to retire at the end of the year.  Many speculate he is doing this so he can avoid being dragged before Congress and forced to answer questions regarding how the Wuhan Institute of Virology received tens of billions of U.S. taxpayer monies to fund ‘gain of function research.’  We hope you won’t get away.  In other oppressive Biden regime-related news regarding the Chi-Vi, the U.S. military is ignoring requests for religious and/or medical exceptions for the vaccines being forced atop U.S. servicemembers.  Stand strong, fellow Americans, stand strong.
  71. 2021 Tuesday K: COVID-19 LOCKDOWNS-RESTRICTIONS-AND AUTHORITARIANISM NEWS- Kaiser Permanente today suspended 5,000 employees for refusing to undergo vaccination with the Xi Jinping Bat Flu inoculations.  Shame.  Elsewhere, the biggest healthcare provider in New York State terminated the employment of 1,400 employees for similar refusals.  Wow.
  72. 2021 Tuesday L: VACCINE MANUFACTURERS’ STOCK PRICES (FOLLOW THE MONEY) NEWS-(1) Pfizer $42.32 (2) AstraZeneca $59.89 (3) Johnson & Johnson $159.58 (4) BioNTech $250.12 (5) Moderna $332.11
  73. 2021 Tuesday M: MILITARY SUPPLIERS’ STOCK PRICES (FOLLOW THE MONEY 2) NEWS- (1) Raytheon: $88.72 (2) General Dynamics: $198.16 (3) Boeing: $224.42 (4) Lockheed Martin: $347.75 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $369.88.
  74. 2021 Tuesday N: PPE MANUFACTURERS’ STOCK PRICES (FOLLOW THE MONEY 3) NEWS- (1) Ansell Ltd.: $33.82 (2) DuPont: $70.97 (3) Honeywell: $215.72 (4) 3M: $177.87 (5) Teijen: $1,568.00.
  75. 2021 Tuesday O: ARTIFICIAL (FAKE) MEAT MANUFACTURERS’ STOCK PRICES (FOLLOW THE MONEY 4) NEWS- (1) Beyond Meat: $100.67 (2) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $64.02 (3) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $21.21.
  76. 2021 Tuesday P: BIG BOX STORE STOCK PRICES (FOLLOW THE MONEY 5) NEWS- (1) Wal-Mart $136.62 (2) Lowe’s: $204.27 (3) Home Depot: $329.48 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $446.24 (5) Amazon $3,221.00.
  77. 2021 Tuesday Q: 2020 ELECTION AUDIT- Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, RINO, once again is attempting to give the impression that he is doing his job and is launching another probe into DeKalb County’s handling of the 2020 Elections.  Big deal.
  78. 2021 Tuesday R: JOE BIDEN NEWS I- Joe Biden is going to tour a union facility in Michigan today, touting his Build Back Better agenda and the multi-trillion-dollar spending bills (that always seem to redirect money back into the pockets of Democrats).  The declining leader of the regime says what he is doing will prevent America from losing its edge.  Whoa.
  79. 2021 Tuesday S: POLITICAL NEWS I- We have all seen the depressing video of angry illegal alien political hacks harassing Senator Kyrsten Sinema in the public crapper.  Shameful.  Well, we learn today that George Soros-funded groups are behind the harassment.  These scumbag illegal alien hirelings are going after the feisty Arizona Democrat to force her into supporting the “Build Back Better Agenda” which many of us here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM believe they are stupid to understand much less comprehend.  Likewise, other left-wing hirelings are going after Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, trying to force him into supporting this bull crap.  Finally, as the left continues ramping up its efforts to intimidate and persecute their real and perceived enemies, former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich warns them softly that ‘there’s more of us than there are of YOU.’  Amen.
  80. 2021 Tuesday T: POLITICAL NEWS II- Ever-mercurial former Ambassador Nikki Haley says the “GOP needs Donald Trump.”  (Note- she’s still trying to get on his good side).  Meanwhile, a new report suggests that Democrats are losing the voter registration battle in battleground states.  NOT a good sign.  Next, Congressman Rob Wittman, R-VA 1st congressional district, says the GOP has a new bill with which to demand accountability from the Chi-Coms on COVID-19.  Elsewhere, Vice President Mike Pence is lighting up the left by saying today the Dems use the (FALSE FLAG OPERATION of) January 06, 2021, as a weapon with which to club President Donald J. Trump and Trump-Pence supporters over the head.  Amen.
  81. 2021 Tuesday U: POLITICAL NEWS III- Congresswoman Ashley Hinson, R-IA 1st congressional district, says that all along, the Democrats have wanted combined spending bills.  Elsewhere, third party hack Evan McMullin announced he is going to challenge conservative Utah Senator Mike Lee, Republican.  What the hell is up with this bonehead, McMullin?  It’s a waste of money, time, and effort and, by the way, what is wrong with Senator Lee?
  82. 2021 Tuesday V: SOCIAL MEDIA NEWS – Frances Haugen- a so-called Facebook whistleblower, someone we believe is most likely a plant sent by Mark Zuckerberg himself- sat before the U.S. Senate Commerce Committee’s subcommittee Product Safety and Data Security and spilled her guts as to how terrible things are at Facebook when it comes to social media harming young kids and viewing pre-teens as an untapped source to lure in and violate.  Chairman Senator Richard “Dick” Blumenthal, DS-CT, says that the ‘SEC and FTC should investigate the whistleblower’s claims.’  Congressman Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, says that the ‘whistleblower’s testimony diverts from the real crime, Facebook’s unabashed war on conservatives.’
  83. 2021 Tuesday W: CALIFORNIA LOTTERY RESULTS-MEGA-MILLIONS DRAW- Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1700 what with a $45 million jackpot on the line: 07, 11, 18, 30, 36, and Mega 04.  Out of 69,999 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $24,231 apiece.
  84. 2021 Tuesday X: as you know, we await news every day as to what the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party stooges are up to; please remain alert as for when we do later today…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The sophomore effort by English band Fairport Convention- “What We Did on our Holidays”- came out on January 12, 1969.  The band featured a change in the lineup- Judy Dyble out and Sandy Denny (vocals, guitars, keyboards) in her place.  The lineup now featured Iain Matthews (lead vocals, congas), Richard Thompson (guitars, vocals, and other stringed instruments), Simon Nichol (guitars, vocals), Ashley Hutchings (basses, jug), and Martin Lamble (drums, percussion, and violin).  The album saw the band moving to much more of a folk-rock sound without some of the electric elements that fans, and music critics said made them sound like an English version of the Jefferson Airplane.  Still, it’s a great follow up to a superb debut album and we encourage everyone to visit your favorite site for the best in rock-and-roll music and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure- you will be glad you did.

ENDNOTES:

[i] We began promoting the music of the Steve Miller Band beginning on Wednesday, 27-July-2011 through Wednesday, 24-August-2011 and then did a second stint on Sunday, 20-April-2014.  We hope you will check the music of this amazing San Francisco, California, acid-rock blues band.

[ii] 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.

[iii] 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.

[iv] We began promoting the music of the world-famous Chambers Brothers beginning on Thursday, 10-April-2014 through Saturday, 19-April-2014.  This presentation occurred at the original blog and if it ever re
