  59. 2014 Monday: “Nymphaea,” a painting in Claude Monet’s “Water Lilies” series, is auctioned today for a price of $54 million; this is only the second-highest price paid for a Monet – another painting in the series sold in 2008 for $80.3 million at auction.
  60. 2015 Tuesday: Amazon.com joins the bandwagon against the Confederate flag following the shooting committed by Dylann Storm Roof the previous week.  Although many Americans see, the flag as part of the nation’s history—from the Civil War—many among the American people see it as a symbol of racism and want it removed.  Elsewhere, NASA’s Mars Odyssey completed its 60,000th orbit around the Red Planet.  The spacecraft entered orbit around the fourth planet from the Sun on October 23, 2001.
  61. 2016 Thursday: On this date, the people of Great Britain flock to the polls to vote in the Brexit Referendum.  The majority of Brits vote to leave the corrupt European Union which sets in motion near-constant problems among younger Brits who don’t want to go and with the EU who wants them to stay no matter what.

  64. 2019 Sunday: Upset Czechs, numbering around 250,000 take to the streets- not for a Black Lives Matter protest but because they are angry at the nation’s Prime Minister Andrej Babis.  The protest occurs in Letna Plain Park and is the biggest public protest since the days when the communists ruled the country.  Elsewhere, U.S. Acting Secretary of Defense Patrick M. Shanahan stepped down from his position on this date.  A member of NO political party, he served under President Donald J. Trump from January 01,2019 until today.
  65. 2020 Tuesday: The FBI announces that the rope- not calling it a NOOSE- found in NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace’s garage has been there since last October.  Since the garage assignments were only made recently, they cast doubt on the ‘act’ being deliberate.  We will keep the readership posted.  UPDATE ON PREVIOUS STORY: HATE CRIME HOAX.  Next, the European Union says it ‘may ban Americans from visiting Europe’ over COVID-19 concerns.  Okay.  Finally, President Trump visits the southern border to celebrate more than 200 miles of new border wall going up and the fact that numbers of illegal aliens attempting to cross is down by 86-percent.  At a Students for Trump rally in Arizona, it is clear the president has loads of support.

Currently, Joe is shy 159,371 deaths

  74. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day No. 92 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka Willie Brown’s mattress, to be in charge of the border and yet to have shown up for a single day’s work.  Still, a new pronouncement says that “Kooky Kamala” is going to tour the border this Friday so she can see the mayhem for herself.  Of course, this comes after last week’s announcement by President Donald J. Trump and Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, that the pair would tour the border next Wednesday, June 30, with at least 12-15 other Republicans.  President Trump says- and rightfully so- that ‘Kooky Kamala Harris would NEVER have visited the southern border IF Trump had not announced that he was going.’  Amen.  In other border calamity news, the Biden regime is going to give illegal aliens who failed to show up for their ASYLUM HEARINGS a second bite at the apple by welcoming deportees back to try again.  F**king Joe.
  75. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Next, here are the numbers from One America News that shows both the cost of caring for millions of illegal aliens as well as the magnitude of this unnecessary disaster: (1) Total Cost this Day of caring for the Illegal Aliens $529,629,760.  (2) Total Amount this Year of caring for Illegal Aliens: $190,118,690,816.  (3) Total number of illegal aliens who have crossed in 2021: 1,948,564.  Finally, (4) Total ESTIMATED number of illegals in the United States: 35,948,564.[xvii]  (Note- we have estimated since the inception of this blog that there were between 35-and-50 million illegals in the United States- back in 2009, no less- whereas now, we believe we have 75-100 million illegals in the United States and the numbers only continue growing.  Time to call in pest control services).
  76. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News– A Russian warship fired warning shots at a Royal Navy vessel transiting the Black Sea.   Meanwhile, the Intel community prophesies that the Afghan government could ‘topple’ within months of the U.S. pullout.  Folks, we have been there more than 20 frigging years and if the SOBs are not prepared by now to fight their own war, then it demonstrates the entire thing was a waste of resources and lives.   Elsewhere, reports have arisen saying that Russian naval vessels have approached within 2 dozen miles off the coast of various Hawaiian islands as they continue pushing the bounds and gathering intelligence.  What is clear is that NO one fears the ‘slobberer-in-chief,’ “Cho-Mo Joe’ Biden sitting in the White House basement spanking his wank.  (Like son, like father, we guess).  (Note- we expect that a new Axis of Russia, the Chi-Coms, Iran, Venezuela, Cuba, North Korea, and second- and third-line allies of these nations will soon launch actions across the world because “Pro-China Joe” Biden is going to do NOTHING in response.  We mean, why would they not?  It’s open hunting season against the U.S.)
  77. 2021 Wednesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– USC and the Rand Corp. show the results of a recent study that excessive lockdowns and restrictions related to the Wuhan Virus Crisis caused more problems than they helped.  Of course, the libs have no desire to hear this but it’s true- depression, emotional issues, alcohol and drug abuse, apathy and suicide went up, up, and UP.  Elsewhere, 153 staff members of a Methodist hospital in Houston have either been fired or been forced to resign over their refusal to take the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines.  Stand strong, people, stand strong.  Next, further reinforcing the beliefs of millions of Americans that the vaccines are either unnecessary or dangerous or both, the malevolent little dwarf, Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci rushes out to claim the ‘Delta variant of the Chi-Vi is deadly but getting one of the vaccinations will protect one from its ravages.’  Right on time there, “Phony Tony.”  (Note- when is this lying POS going to be fired?  His time is up, folks).
  78. 2021 Wednesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Senator Joni Ernst, R-IA, says that Joe Biden should have pressed the Chin harder over answers as to the origins of the China Virus.  Good for you, senator.   Next, regarding the evil ‘Delta variant’ of the Xi Jinping Pox, health authorities are telling us that both AstraZeneca and Pfizer are effective at combatting this new, fearsome variant from the Wuhan Bat Lab.  In other Chi-Com Virus news, the U.S. government seized an unauthorized shipment of Chairman Xi Kung Flu vaccines heading to Mexico.
  79. 2021 Wednesday K: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News-Oregon County officials have visited the ongoing Arizona 2020 Election audit so they can possibly replicate it in their counties.   Next, Michigan Republicans want to replicate an Arizona-style election audit in their state.  We say, “Go for it!”
  80. 2021 Wednesday L: Joe Biden News– Slobbering Joe Biden blames young people for sabotaging his efforts to get 70-percent of the American people vaccinated with one of the Chi-Vi vaccines roaming the land.  The more information that continues coming to light showing numerous adverse effects- especially on young people- the less people are inclined to get the shots.  NO MORE, JOE!  Meanwhile, Joe Biden nominates Cindy McCain to a U.N. post- the Food and Agriculture post, an ambassador-level position.
  81. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News I– Twenty-two GOP state attorneys general are fighting to protect the Hyde Amendment from rampaging Democrats who want to blacken everyone’s soul by using taxpayer dollars to fund the PRO-DEATH MOVEMENT.  God bless them.   Next, the National Security Agency- the NSA- is reaching out to the private sector to help them combat hackers.  Speaking of hackers, esteemed (yeah, right) FBI boss Christopher Wray is encouraging hacked businesses not to pay the hackers ransoms.  Okay, what can they do?  What is the FBI doing on behalf of American businesses? 
  82. 2021 Wednesday N: Political News II– In New York City’s mayoral race, candidate Adams widens lead over nearest competitors Wiley and Garcia while Andrew Yang throws in the towel.  Sorry, Andrew, it appears you are as electable as is Robert Francis “Beto the Bullshitter” O’Rourke.  Maybe you should return to Taiwan?   In other political news, a majority of Republican voters say that ‘Critical Race Theory is a definite danger to the republic as founded.’  Amen.  Meanwhile, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis has signed a new bill forcing colleges and universities to teach the EVILS of communism to their students.  About damned time. 
  83. 2021 Wednesday O: Political News III– Next week, we hear that the United States and the communist Chin are holding some sort of talks.   Next, political genius Dick Morris says that ‘Donald J. Trump is confident that the media will break its silence on the election audits.’  Elsewhere, Senator Josh Hawley says it’s time to hire 100,000 new police officers to combat the rising crime wave.  Amen.  Elsewhere, a new Rasmussen poll says that 41-percent of the American people do not believe that Joe Biden ‘won’ the 2020 Presidential Election ‘fair and square.’  NO one we know does.  The guy bragged about having the largest voter theft organization in the history of the country.  Time to remove him from office.  Meanwhile, as Georgia Democrats continue screeching and wailing about the clean-up of the voter rolls in the Peach State, Governor Brian Kemp, RINO-GA, says that his government is following federal law ad it cleans up its voting rolls.  
  84. 2021 Wednesday P: Political News IV– RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel says, ‘let’s concentrate on winning 2022 before we begin worrying about 2024.’  Amen.   Next, U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen says that ‘without an increase in the debt ceiling, the United States could default on its debts by early August.’  This would collapse the country.  Jesus Christ, folks, the spiral of debt continues spinning like the spinning wheel spins (so sang Blood, Sweat & Tears back in the early 1970s).
  85. 2021 Wednesday Q:  U.S. Supreme Court News– The U.S. Supreme Court in an 8-1 decision handed the foul-mouthed cheerleader a big win today reaffirming the rights of Americans to freedom of speech.
  86. 2021 Wednesday R: Joe Biden Regime News I– Joe Biden’s up to his old tricks once again babbling on about how he is going to do something about gun violence.  He goes after lawful gun owners while giving thugs and gangbangers a pass on shooting one another in the streets.   What a loser.  Next, a new poll says that 56-percent of the American people do not support the Biden regime’s screwed up handling of the Israeli-Palestinian issue.  We believe that’s true.  Most Americans want to see the Palestinians obliterated off the face of the globe so the entire Middle East could enjoy an extended peace.  It’s clear that Joe Biden loves the Palestinian Untermensch. (Note- must be money going into Joe’s back pocket somewhere in the money-go-round).
  87. 2021 Wednesday S: Joe Biden Regime News II– The Joe Biden regime is launching a new campaign to go after ‘devious and crooked’ gun dealers whom they believe are selling guns out the backdoor to criminals and others who cannot own them.  Joe wants to take guns away from law-abiding criminals while doing nothing to go after criminals who misuse stolen guns to commit heinous crimes.  Once again, we have yet another prime example of how the people ‘elected’ to lead us hate our guts.  Joe says the Second Amendment does not permit the ownership of cannons and other weapons but if you read the amendment, it does not specify what types of weapons one can own.  We favor constitutional carry and have taken great pains to make sure when the “Joestapo” shows up at the door, they won’t find our guns.  F**k them.
  88. 2021 Wednesday T:  Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– The Pentagon rejects the charge that the U.S. military has gone WOKE.  By saying they have ‘not gone WOKE’ when everyone knows they have demonstrated beyond the shadow of a doubt that the Pentagon has drunk long and deep from the well of toxic WOKE Kool-Aid.  Not a suitable time to enlist in the military folks.  We will wait until President Donald J. Trump returns to the White House, hopefully soon.   Elsewhere, a Loudoun County school board meeting in Virginia goes all to hell as people protesting the gender insanity being forced on their kids get hauled away in handcuffs to the hoosegow including parent Jon Tigges who came on the Tucker Carlson program on Fox News Channel.   The fuzz declared the meeting attended by hundreds of American patriots an ‘unlawful assembly’ and waded into the midst of the attendees, fighting with people who most likely have been BIG SUPPORTERS of the cops up until now.  Look for that to change.   Finally, as the LGBTQIA+ Nazis continue demanding we pay attention to the pronouns preferred by all the snowflakes and twinkies out there, let’s just call everyone, “Comrade.”  Is that acceptable?
  89. 2021 Wednesday U: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– Former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin to be sentenced this Friday.  Everyone expects him to be sent away for 30 years.  We expect him to get a retrial, especially as how the judge allowed corrupt individuals onto the jury and that insane racist skank, Congresswoman Maxine “Prune Face” Waters, CPUSA-CA 43rd congressional district, went to Minneapolis the weekend prior to the verdict coming in and ginned up the threat of violence IF the jury acquitted Officer Chauvin.  “Prune Face” should be doing time in a federal slammer for jury tampering.
  90. 2021 Wednesday V: U.S. House of Representatives News– Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district, has put forth a bill censuring the slobberer-in-chief, Joe Biden, over his criminal mishandling of the crisis along the southern border. 
  91. 2021 Wednesday W: U.S. Senate News– The U.S. Senate GOP successfully smacked down H.R. 1, aka S. 1- the “For the People Act” aka the “John Lewis Voting Rights Act” via a unified stance.  This is great because it would allow the Democrats to federalize the system of elections that would be little more than a blatant power grab.[xviii]
  92. 2021 Wednesday X: Maryland State News–  Former DNC bigwig Tom Perez, DS, has thrown his hat into the ring for governor of the Old-Line State.  Wow.  This guy is nothing more than a political hack much like the Clinton bagman, Terry “The Maggot” McAuliffe, who is trying to become the governor of Virginia again.
  93. 2021 Wednesday Y: Sports News– Organizers for the upcoming 2021 Summer Olympics in Tokyo announced today that they are banning alcohol sales and prohibiting fans from getting autographs from their favorite Olympians.  Next, defensive lineman for the Las Vegas Raiders Carl Nassib comes out as the first active openly gay player in the NFL.  Big whoop, he will be taking showers by himself from this point henceforth.  At least Michael Sam had to go to Canada to play and up there, he didn’t last long.  We expect Nassib will be out of the league within a year or two.
  94. 2021 Wednesday Z: Observation of the Day– This segment segues in perfectly.  All this talk about trannys- chicks with dicks– competing in the Olympics is insane just as it is for every other level of sports.  IF women must compete with sick boys claiming to be girls (like that ‘looker’ from New Zealand, the weightlifter), girls should be allowed to ‘dope.’  If they can dope, then they can stand an even chance at defeating this emotionally mixed-up boys; otherwise, it’s time to create a third category of sports- TRANNY SPORTS.  We have the ‘Special Olympics,’ let’s have the “Tranny Olympics.”  I bet more people would watch the ‘Tranny Olympics’ because who doesn’t like watching a good carnival freak show?  We know we do.
  95. 2021 Wednesday AA: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– Super Lotto Draw #3571 has a $57 million on the line tonight.  Meanwhile, the Powerball Draw #857 has a $63 million pot up for grabs so please, stick around and see the results.  Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto: 04, 09, 38, 40, 41, and Mega 25.  Out of 133,078 winning tickets, the highest winners were 25 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $983 apiece.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball: 13, 20, 40, 51, 63, and Powerball 01.  Out of 43,922 winning tickets in California, the highest winners was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $25,624.
  96. 2022 Thursday: Here is where we were ONE YEAR AGO TODAY when Chef Vladdie was doing the week: How soon before the new American ‘Gestapo’ (the Joestapo) shows up in the middle of the night, flashing their Nacht und Nebel badges to signify we no longer have any rights and can be arrested in the dead of darkness?  Remember: there are more than 75 million of us and it’s going to take them several years before they can accomplish the highly lampooned but equally true “Replacement Theory,” you know, the one in which American voters are replaced with a foreign-born population.  Of course, that’s just ‘QAnon shit, right?’   Stick around to uncover the events of the day along with the rest of us…then again, we probably will publish them NEXT year.

[i] 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.

[ii] We began promoting the music of the Grateful Dead- including Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Phil Lesh- beginning on Tuesday, 30-August-2011 through Wednesday, 11-January-2012.  Then, we did a second series featuring more albums by this fabled San Francisco band beginning on Friday, 09-August-2013 through Monday, 19-August-2013.  At some point, we will have to do a third series as the music from this band never ends.  Please, seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[iii] The Atlanta Rhythm Section is another awesome American band, one we sure as heck hope to promote when and if we return to doing music again.

[iv] Not sure when we will promote the music of the Knack but one day, we most surely will.

[xviii] So as not to appear hypocrites like Democrats always do, we have pushed for a uniform system of elections codified by a constitutional amendment that would (1) demand voter ID for all elections (2) would imprison both unqualified voters (illegal aliens, felons, and others deemed incapable of voting), (3) would end same-day voting and early voting but would expand Election Day voting hours as well as provide absentee voting for those with a need to do so.  We also believe that U.S. military across the world should be able to vote a month in advance of Election Day and that their ballots would be transferred via military custody to a national military election site in Washington, D.C., where they would then be broken down into their states, counties, and cities.  Uniformity is important so long as it is to guarantee that ALL Lawful ballots are counted and unlawful ones not.  Also, if there are any crimes like we witnessed last election cycle such as GOP observers being booted, cardboard thrown up in windows, recounting of ballots, and trucking in pristine ballots printed elsewhere, people should face 25 years in a federal prison without the hope of early release.  Dead people must not vote, illegal aliens must not vote, criminals must not vote, and electronic machines and software programs should be booted in place of paper ballots with a paper trail.  You see, Democrats CANNOT win most honest elections which is why they are always trying to thieve elections any way they can.  We posit that DEEP BLUE STATES and CITIES most likely are a deep, deep RED.

163. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, JUNE 12, 2022

2009 Friday: Following ‘free elections’ in the Islamist hellhole of Iran, people protest them as being ‘unfair.’ Of all the Middle Eastern nations in which, President Barack Obama interfered during the “Green Revolutions,” Iran was the only one in which, he didn’t. Go figure.

  53. 2009 Friday: Following ‘free elections’ in the Islamist hellhole of Iran, people protest them as being ‘unfair.’  Of all the Middle Eastern nations in which, President Barack Obama interfered during the “Green Revolutions,” Iran was the only one in which, he didn’t.  Go figure.  
  54. 2010 Saturday: Hungarian food critic Egon Ronay dies at age 94.

  56. 2012 Tuesday: An Australian coroner’s report rules that a dingo and not a person sentenced to prison was responsible for the death of a baby in 1980.   Meanwhile, Beijing-controlled World Health Organization announces that diesel exhaust causes cancer.  Go figure.
  57. 2013 Wednesday: Russia bans gay propaganda promoting the ‘alternative lifestyles of the LGBTQIA+ community’ the day before.  It goes into effect.  Good.
  58. 2014 Thursday: After terrorists kidnap three Israeli teenagers in the West Bank, the government blames the jihadist thugs of Hamas. 
  59. 2015 Friday: According to On This Day, Zimbabwe decides to end the nation’s national currency offering an exchange of 35 quadrillion Zimbabwean dollars for $1 U.S.  Hate to see the citizens bringing their money to the banks for exchange. 
  60. 2016 Sunday: In the early morning hours, local Muslim jihadist Omar Mateen, 29 years-old opens fire at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida, slaying 49 people and wounding another 53 before members of the Orlando Police Department kill the POS.  Some say that Mateen himself was homosexual- something his wife denied- which was why he targeted the predominantly gay club.
  61. 2017 Monday: In Game 5 of the 2017 NBA Finals, the Golden State Warriors beat defending champion, the Cleveland Cavaliers by a final score of 129-120, capturing the crown for the second time in three years and avenging their loss to the Cavaliers the previous year.  The addition of Kevin Durant, aka “KD,” during the offseason helped the Warriors clinch the NBA title. 
  62. 2018 Tuesday: In Sutton, England, Jon Hiseman- famed drummer of the British rock band, Colosseum[xi]– died at age 73 on this date.  Meanwhile, the first summit meeting between U.S. President Donald J. Trump and North Korean strongman Kim Jong Un occurs.  Following its conclusion, they agree to meet again to discuss ways by which the two countries can bring peace to the Korean Peninsula.  Elsewhere, the Trump administration debuts a new 16-acre parcel of land in Taipei, Taiwan, which will become the home of ‘the American Institute in Taiwan’ which will actually be the new embassy as the U.S. moves back to the Two-China Policy by which, we recognize the Chi-Coms’ criminal occupation of the mainland and the freedom-loving Chinese people of Taiwan.
  63. 2019 Wednesday: In Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals, the St. Louis Blues beat the Boston Bruins by a final score of 4-3 to win their first cup in team franchise history.  Congratulations.   Meanwhile, the Chi-Com intelligence-gathering company Huawei pulls back the launch of its laptop (what could be wrong with this?) blaming its setback on the U.S. refusal to permit Chi-Com spy devices into the U.S.  Wait another year or two if the Dems are able to somehow get Trump out of office.
  64. 2020 Friday: Leftists continue causing trouble around the country, trouble we believe is being funded by Beijing and on the ground by their Democratic Party colluders.  Shame on them.  Meanwhile, the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, aka CHAZ, continues to exist, a place where robberies, rapes, and beatings are increasing exponentially. Various groups are now fighting for supremacy in there, how soon before we have outright violence, public whippings, and even executions?  Meanwhile, the Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan, a committed Marxist, says ‘it’s akin to the summer of love.’  Yeah, right. It is high time for the U.S. government to put both Beijing and their Democratic Party lackeys on notice that we are not going to put up with this crap.  Enough is flipping enough!  Sadly, statues across the country have been vandalized, torn down, and/or destroyed.  Not good.
  65. 2020 Friday A: Here are the statistics for the Wuhan Bat Virus Crisis, sent around the globe by communist bigwig, Xi Jinping: 7,573,699 confirmed cases, 423,155 confirmed deaths, and 3,582,269 confirmed recoveries.   In the United States, here are the stats for today: 2,083,548 confirmed cases, 116,130 confirmed deaths, and 626,642 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, has chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, Golden State first: 141,983 confirmed cases, 4,943 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries; politics as usual.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 685 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 622 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in Washington, here are the stats: 24,799 confirmed cases, 1,194 confirmed deaths, but like California, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.

  67. 2021 Saturday A: Joe Biden To Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 297,075 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 162,574 deaths

  70. 2021 Saturday D: Friday’s Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,479.60, UP 13.36 points (+0.039%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,069.42, UP 49.09 points (+0.35%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,247.44, UP +8.26 points (+0.19%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $70.78 per barrel, -0.13 (-0.18%).  The price of GOLD is $1,879.50 per troy oz., -0.10 (-0.01%) while the price of SILVER is $28.05 per troy ounce, -0.10 (-0.34%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,149.30 per troy oz, -1.80 (-0.16%) while the price of COPPER is $4.55 per pound, +0.01 (+0.32%).[xvi]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,775.99 per troy oz, -0.32 (-0.01%).[xvii] The price of RHODIUM is $22,300.00 per troy oz., +950.00 (+4.45%).

  71. 2021 Saturday 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 $4.224 per gallon, $2.972 in Florida, $3.977 in Hawaii, and $3.615 in Washington state.[xx]    Let’s look at one other location- Massachusetts: $2.946.  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- Guatemala: $3.625 per U.S. Gallon.[xxi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,397,916,923,036 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxii]  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 Cayman Islands, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Taiwan with $235 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position).[xxiii]
  72. 2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Today is Day No. 82 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in sole charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and lo and behold…she has not visited it today nor will she.  What a loser.  You know things are bad when one’s own political party- in this case, the Democrats- have no words to express how disappointed they are with her job performance.  Loser.
  73. 2021 Saturday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– Communist China passes a new ‘anti-sanctions act,’ (Not sure what they mean by this?) in which they will deny visas, freeze assets, and deport into permanent internal exile anyone who criticizes their murderous, Nazi-like regime.  Go figure.  Speaking of thuggish states, Russian President Vladimir Putin- in office until 2036 (how’s that for longevity?)- says the relationship between him and his nation with the United States has drastically declined since the ‘drooler-in-chief’ “Pro-China Joe” Biden usurped the White House.
  74. 2021 Saturday H: Joe Biden Regime News I– Joe Biden’s earpiece has nominated Carlos Del Toro to become secretary of the United States Navy.  Speaking of the U.S. military, the GOP is pushing the Biden regime to increase national defense spending as more and more people continue pointing out the sad fact that the Chi-Coms are speedily increasing the size of their military in preparation for war with the United States.  (Note- we encourage launching a first strike on the Chi-Coms with all tools available in our arsenal while continuing to increase the size of our own to be able to contend with a war on numerous fronts).
  75. 2021 Saturday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information– The U.S. Centers for Disease Control has announce an emergency meeting so they can begin delving into the growing reports of myocarditis in mostly young men who have answered the Siren’s call to go get themselves vaccinated with a vaccine that has ONLY ‘emergency clearance,’ a vaccine in which the drug manufacturers have ‘qualified immunity’ (something they seek to strip away from cops), and a vaccine in which more than 5,000 people in the past six months have died from getting.  Various sources in the medical industry in the United States have informed us that ANY DRUG with 100 deaths or more associated with it would already be pulled from the market.  Go figure.  In other Xi Jinping Bat Flu Virus news, Rep.  Devin Nunes, R-CA 22 congressional district, continues to sound the alarm over all the secrecy surrounding the Wuhan Institute of Virology. 
  76. 2021 Saturday J: Political News I– President Donald J. Trump spoke out on the ‘jobless union workers who voted in lockstep for Joe Biden and now with the Keystone XL Pipeline closed, they are sitting at home drawing unemployment.’  (Note- someone should take AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka out and give him a good thrashing.  Perhaps when America’s labor unions vote for leadership again, they will go with an ‘America-first’ supporter rather than an overweight, ignorant, political hack who can’t get his nose out of the butt cracks of Democratic-Socialist hacks).
  77. 2021 Saturday K: Political News II– Far-left liberal commentator Bill Maher blasts his left-wing cronies for failing to acknowledge the progress made on racial and social fronts.  Bill generally calls them the way he sees them.  Elsewhere, at the MAGA FRANK Rally in New Richmond, Wisconsin, Diamond and Silk lambasted Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, CPUSA-MN 5th congressional district in front of a vast crowd of American patriots, saying of this unpatriotic POS that ‘if she doesn’t love her country then she’s free to go.’  Of Joe Biden, they said ‘hell no to Jim Joe Crow Joe, that the Swamp installed him, the American people did not elect him.’ 
  78. 2021 Saturday L: Health And Medical Alerts– As if we already didn’t have enough problems with the Chi-Com lab-engineered virus running amok, our friends in England have just reported the first two cases of the highly-contagious, West African lethal disease the monkeypox.  Similar to smallpox, this disease can run amok through a population causing problems that will reverberate through said society.  Folks, this is what happens when there are NO controls on the borders or ports of entry.  It is as if various world governments are social re-engineering to alleviate the world of much of its ‘excess population.’ 
  79. 2021 Saturday M: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto And Powerball Draws– Stay tuned for the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3568 with a $54 million pot on the line and also for the Powerball Draw #854 with a $31 million pot up for grabs.  First, here are the results for the Super Lotto: 05, 10, 21, 22, 36, and Mega 10.  Out of 151,840 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had FIVE numbers for a prize of $50,728.  The winning ticket was sold at My Goods Market #5519 in Sacramento, CA 95864.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball: 08, 25, 34, 38, 41, and Power 10.  Out of 43,809 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were two people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $11,467 apiece.
  80. 2022 Sunday:  Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Friends, we are going to present something to you today that MANY self-proclaimed fans of the Beach Boys have slammed: “M.I.U. Album,” their next studio release that came out on September 25, 1978.  When it came out, yes, it sold poorly, was not well received but friends, we love the f**k out of this album just as we do its successor, “Light Album (L.A. Album).  Reportedly, the album was released to fulfill contractual obligations and even stranger, it was recorded in Iowa at the Maharishi International University to keep the Boys away from their West Coast drug suppliers.  Once again, we have the Wilson Brothers and Mike Love and Al Jardine along with some members of the touring band.  This album remains one of our favorites and almost every tune is a delight.  It opens with “She’s Got Rhythm,” sung by Brian whose vocals are back in fine form followed by “Come Go With Me,” sung by Al followed by “Hey, Little Tomboy,” sung by Mike and Brian.  Some fans said this tune sounded like some sort of pedophile song but we will say, it most likely was written years later so being sung by older guys is just how it is.  Great song.  Next, we get “Kona Coast,” sung by Mike and Al, followed by “Peggy Sue,” the old favorite and then “Woncha Come Out Tonight,” perhaps the low point of the album.  Side Two opens Carl’s “Sweet Sunday Kind of Love,” followed by Mike Love’s “Belles of Paris.”  Then the crème de la crème follow with the amazing, “Pitter Patter,” sung by Al and Mike, followed by Dennis’ “My Diane.”  Then, the song we believe to be the best of the best, “Match Point of Our Love,” all Brian.  Finally, the album closes out with “Winds of Change,” another Al and Mike vocal.  Folks, this is a GREAT album, screw what critics and disgruntled fans say.  This remains among our favorite albums of their catalog so please, seek it out and enjoy.  We think you will be glad you did.

140. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, MAY 20, 2022

2007 Sunday: In the war against Hamas, Palestinians claim that an Israeli Defense Force warplane lit up the home of a Hamas ‘lawmaker’- Khalil al-Haya. The Palestinians say the terrorist was not at home at the time but that others were leading to 8 dead and loads of others wounded to varying degrees.

SPRING SESSION 2022

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 185

140. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, MAY 20, 2022:

National Defense Transportation Day

U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justices Stephen Johnson Field and John Marshall Harlan II; U.S. Secretary of State Frederick Theodore Frelinghuysen; U.S. Senator Mike Crapo; .38 Special featuring Ken Lyons, the Atlanta Rhythm Section featuring Robert Nix, the Bee Gees featuring Robin Gibb, (Sonny and) Cher, the Doors featuring Ray Manzarek, Joe Cocker, and T-Rex featuring Steve Currie:

  1. 526 Monday: An earthquake at Antioch, Syria, reportedly kills 250,000 people.
  2. 1277 Thursday: The reign of the 187th Roman Catholic Pope John XXI ends on this date.  He first became pontiff on September 08, 1276.
  3. 1293 Wednesday: An earthquake hits Kamakura, Japan, killing at least 30,000 people.
  4. 1498 Friday: Portuguese explorer Vasco de Gama arrives at Calicut, India, after sailing around the Cape of Good Hope, South Africa.  This singular event would throw the caravan trail from the Orient to the Middle East into decline for centuries.  It would also open up much of the world to European colonization. 
  5. 1506 Sunday: In Spain, Christopher Columbus dies in poverty on this date, which is amazing as the man discovered the New World and voyaged to it at least six separate times.
  6. 1520 Thursday: Hernando Cortez and his conquistadors defeated Spanish troops sent by the governor in Cuba for going ‘off script’ in his invasion of the Aztec Empire.  The survivors then joined Cortez in his triumphal return to Mexico City.

Currently, Joe is shy 173,481 deaths.   In other Chi-Vi-related news, lawmakers are asking WHY House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, possibly more senile than the 46th president is, won’t update the MASK DICTATE when the Centers for Disease Control says, ‘MOST Americans no longer have to wear masks (not that we ever truly did).’  The amazing thing is that when the Democrats believe the cameras are turned off, the masks come off.  What a load of festering fecal matter.

  76. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Today is Day 59 for Border Czar “Kooky Kamala” Harris NOT to visit the southern border.  Meanwhile, rumors of maltreatment and mistreatment of illegal aliens in holding pens along the southern border continue to grow and the federal government has closed two facilities with dire records of mistreatment of the incarcerated illegals.  Elsewhere, video is beginning to leak out of illegal alien dumps at various airports around the country in the dead of night.  Chef Lilah who has a relative working at the airport in Honolulu says that illegal alien brats are arriving at least once a week in flights who are then being distributed around the Hawaiian Islands.  This simply must stop. 
  77. 2021 Thursday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– Hamas and Hezbollah are crying uncle.  A ceasefire negotiated by the Joe Biden regime and Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah el-Sissi has brought a halt to the ongoing clash of Good (Israel) and Evil (Hamas and Hezbollah).  The Israelis have eliminated most of the tunnels that Palestinian leadership devotes massive amounts of donated money to construct rather than giving their people better lives.  The Israels also have taken out numerous Hamas military sites and as many Hamas scumbags as possible.  God bless you!   Meanwhile, a Chinese Communist Party-linked professor says that ‘COVID-19 was indeed a Chi-Com biological weapons attack on the United States.’  Hell, we have been saying that since it began gaining steam in early 2020!  Senior Researcher Chen Ping of China Institute of Fudan University said that ‘(communist) China defeated the U.S. in a biological war in 2020.’  What more flipping evidence does the world need to understand that the primary target was President Donald J. Trump, and the primary beneficiary was “Pro-China Joe” Biden?  OPEN YOUR EYES.
  78. 2021 Thursday H: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– Dr. Kelli Ward, chair of the Arizona GOP, says that it would appear that more and more evidence demonstrates that the 2020 Elections in the Copper State most likely were corrupt and fraudulent in Maricopa County and that it is possible that Joe Biden could be proven to be the counterfeit that he is.  We hope to see a great outcome which is why the Arizona Democratic Party is doing everything it can to defy the ongoing audit as is the despicable Dominion Voting Systems out of Canada.  We believe the Canadian government must order them to comply with all requests from the ongoing Grand Canyon State audit.   (Note- George Soros-funded Sheriff Paul Penzone, DS, is fighting the auditors by putting as much blockage in their way.  When the hell is this country going to do something to Mr. Soros?)  Finally, the D.A. in Fayette City, Pennsylvania, has launched a probe into WHY Dominion Voting Systems machines flipped ONLY GOP ballots over to Democrats in the last election.  Bit by bit, more information continues coming out that we believe is going to show that the Democrats stole 2020.  Hence, why is there this determination to continue strengthening Fort Pelosi in Washington, D.C.?  They know they got away with a stolen election.
  79. 2021 Thursday I: Joe Biden Regime News I– the Biden regime directs U.S. agencies to assess and to then mitigate the effects of ‘climate change.’  Uh, okay, what a waste of time.   Next, all of the Biden regime’s misfires has led to problems in the U.S.-Israeli relationship.  Speaking of Israel, Joe’s pal, Senator Bernie Sanders, DS-VT, is offering legislation to BLOCK the $735 million sale of weapons to the Israelis.  (Note- what more evidence does one require to know that Bernie is a self-hating Jew?)  Also related to Israel, GOP lawmakers are calling on Mr. Biden to strengthen U.S. ties with Israel.  In other regime news, the Bidenistas say the Chi-Coms won’t release data from their now infamous Wuhan Biological Warfare Lab.
  80. 2021 Thursday J: Political News I– The University of North Carolina has denied 1619 Project founder, Nikole “Bozo the Clown” Hannah-Jones tenure because this woman is- in the language of the young and dumb- cray-cray.  Good for them.  Educated, fair-minded people must begin pushing back on these racist nuts before they destroy our country.  Boot this bi**h into the nearest dumpster.  Speaking of educated, non-racist folks, a new study finds that 35-percent or more conservative thinkers are better educated and better informed on both current events and past events.  Liberal news watchers are much-less educated and aware of the truth of anything.  Speaking of liberal bias, Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-TX 2nd congressional district, calls out the mainstream news media- what Dave Rubin labels ‘corporate news media’- over its coverage of events.
  81. 2021 Thursday K: Political News II– While the Democrats continue pressing ahead with socialism, House GOP leaders held a Cuban independence day event.  The people of Cuba deserve their freedom while the American people do not deserve being forced into communism via the backdoor of socialism. Meanwhile, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district, lambasted the Democrats’ establishment of the ‘January 06, 2021, Commission’ as being little more than ‘impeachment 3.0.  Amen.  In fact, ZERO people have been charged with insurrection.  NONE.  The National Republican Congressional Committee raised $11.2 million in the month of April.   Elsewhere, people are asking questions as to WHY Governor “Gravel Gertie” Gretchen Whitmer just shut down the state’s Line 5 that provides propane for much of Michigan for home heating?  WTF is occurring here.
  82. 2022 Friday: Everyone knows the drill- stick around with us and discover the truth…the way things are going, we may have to make nice with China because things are going to hell here in the United States in a handbasket what with WOKE this and WOKE that and here a WOKE and there a WOKE, everywhere a WOKE-WOKE-WOKE…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

“Pet Sounds” came out on May 16, 1966 and was the commercial pinnacle of the Beach Boys.  No longer touring with his brothers, cousin, and friends, Brian was in the studio with session musicians and lyricists and created perhaps one of the all-time greatest albums in the annals of modern, popular music.  From start to finish, the album was a tapestry of musical influences, stories, feelings, and emotions all interwoven with one another.  When the Beatles heard this album, it is reported that they were awed at what they had to compete.  Of course, they would be working on “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.”  The tunes include nothing but memorable hits such as “Wouldn’t It be Nice,” “You Still Believe in Me,” “Don’t Talk (Put Your Head on my Shoulder),” “Sloop John B,” “God Only Knows,” and “Caroline, No.”  We hope you will seek this album out and make it a part of your daily musical rotation because it will indeed grow upon- not only your ears- but your heart, mind and soul.  Check it out now- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

  71. 2020 Wednesday A: Meanwhile, Democratic women continue circling the wagons around stumbling, bumbling “Pro-China Joe” Biden as the Tara Reade story continues gathering steam.  Women who attacked Brett Kavanaugh continue to say, “No, Joe didn’t do anything.”  Look, liberal slut-bags, IF you don’t go after Joe, no one is ever going to pay attention to you hypocritical skanks ever again.  We know YOUR game.  Finally, NYC Mayor Bill Di Blasio threatens to arrest Jewish citizens while promising Muslims they will get their meals throughout the city during Ramadan.  What?

  77. 2021 Thursday E: 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 $4.010 per gallon, $2.790 in Florida, $3.787 in Hawaii, and $3.436 in Washington state.[xix]    Let’s look at one other location- North Carolina: $2.661.  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 fourth lowest gasoline price in the world- Algeria: $1.306 per U.S. Gallon.[xx]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,228,516,653,001 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  78. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– The nation is all atwitter over last night’s ‘Joe Biden address to a Joint Session of the Congress,’ because Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district, sitting up in the gallery was wearing a mylar blanket like all the illegal alien brats use to cover their bodies in the illegal alien holding pens. 
  79. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden Regime News I– Speaking of the ‘Biden agenda,’ Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, says that ‘Joe Biden’s radical agenda is dead on arrival in the U.S. Senate.’  Next, the Senate is interviewing the next round of Joe Biden’s ‘judicial picks,’ most of them far-left whackos as the Dems seek to move on from the conservatives the Trump administration got onto the nation’s federal courts.  In other Joe Biden news, Catholic bishops are suggesting that Joe Biden should NOT take communion because of his insane push for abortions at all stages of fetal and post-fetal development.  We concur, Joe Biden should be excommunicated from the Catholic Church along with every other pro-abortion Democrats.  It is an evil and a sin.
  80. 2021 Thursday H: Foreign News / Overseas News– GOP lawmakers are requesting an inspector-general investigation into Climate Czar John F. Kerry’s close ties to the criminal regime in Tehran, what many say are treasonous ties.  It is clear that the Biden administration WON’T investigate John Kerry’s Logan Act violations unless, of course, it’s time to throw him under the bus for some misdeed within the administration.  Speaking of the Iranians, after the leak of the audio tape hit the news cycle in which the Iranians were discussing the help John F. Kerry provided them on ongoing Israeli covert operations in Syria, the presidential office is undergoing an extreme shakeup as they seek the rat(s) who leaked the damning evidence of collusion between “Lurch” and the mullahs.  Meanwhile, Maria Butina, a Russian intelligence operative (or so the feds claimed) who did time in an American prison is seeking to win a seat in Russia’s Parliament.   Speaking of Russia, allies of Alexei Navalny are closing down various of his offices over a harsh crackdown by the Putin government. 
  81. 2021 Thursday I: Political News I– The U.S. Department of Justice is going to launch civil rights violations charges against convicted Minneapolis Police Department Officer Derek Chauvin as well as the other three officers awaiting their trials.  You might ask, ‘doesn’t double jeopardy exist?’  In this country, NO longer, NO more.  If the federal government doesn’t like the outcome of a criminal trial, it can come in, dump in loads more charges, and go to town.  This is not right and should not be condoned otherwise, the feds can take repeated swings at the same crumbling apple.  ALL of us are in danger.  Next, New York City Mayor Bill Di Blasio says that ‘New York City will fully reopen on July 01.’  We’ll see.  Moving on, after Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, gave last night’s rebuttal to Joe Biden’s incoherent speech, “Uncle Tim” was trending on Twitter before- after about 12 hours- Twitter took it down.  They wanted to make sure enough people saw it before removing it.
  82. 2021 Thursday J: Political News II– Former U.S. Attorney Brett Tolam said on Newsmax today that he believes the seizure of Rudy Giuliani’s electronic devices- other than the hard drive from Hunter Biden’s laptop– demonstrates how the U.S. Justice Department has become totally politicized.  He alluded to the fact that prior to this- the third warrant- Justice Department officials sought two prior warrants to go after Rudy Giuliani but were denied each time.  Thus, they had to await a change in leadership at the DOJ, i.e., Merrick “The Mole” Garland becoming the attorney general.  With him sitting in the big chair, the enemies of Rudy easily got the warrants they sought, and the rest is history.  However, many are curious as to WHY the feds did not seize Hunter’s hard drive?   Also, as in other Trump allies’ treatment at the hands of the feds, the FBI made sure that reporters were on scene so they could see “America’s Mayor” embarrassed if that is at all possible.  They showed up at 6:30 a.m.  Hmmm, no wonder why there is the FBI show on TV… finally, in other U.S. government news, the feds will maintain the ban on menthol-flavored cigarettes and cigars.
  83. 2021 Thursday K: Political News III–  Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, and Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, are both refusing corporate donations.  Because they WOKE, man, the corporations that is.
  84. 2022 Friday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole– 512,931,247 confirmed cases, +863,780, 6,259,348 confirmed deaths, +3,495 and 466,682,378 confirmed recoveries, +857,817. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 83,037,059 confirmed cases, UP 86,921 from yesterday’s reporting, 1,020,660 confirmed deaths, UP 536,[xxii] and 80,655,685 confirmed recoveries, UP by 37,328.    We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[xxiii]
  85. 2022 Friday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 571,367 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate 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 raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 206,612 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 464 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.            
  86. 2022 Friday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 9,235,869 confirmed cases, 90,518 confirmed deaths, and 8,966,118 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,969,659 confirmed cases, 73,948 confirmed deaths, and 5,817,480 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 248,405 confirmed cases, 1,418 confirmed deaths, and 239,190 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,498,116 confirmed cases, 12,703 confirmed deaths, and 1,446,729 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Grand Princess Ship: they have 122 confirmed cases, 7 confirmed deaths, and 115 confirmed recoveries.[xxiv]

  89. 2022 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 and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.706 per gallon, $4.181 in Florida, $5.261 in Hawaii, and $4.699 in Washington state.[xxix]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: North Carolina- $3.864.  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 31st LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Uzbekistan: $3.294 per U.S. Gallon.[xxx] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,417,378,268,284 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxxi]  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 Brazil the SEVENTH largest holder of U.S. debt is Switzerland.  This nation holds $256,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  90. 2022 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– Russian submarines are delivering barrages of cruise missile assaults onto various targets in Ukraine including an attack on Kyiv while the U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres was visiting Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky earlier in the week.  The Russians admit they targeted the meeting.  Meanwhile, 63 days into the Russo-Ukrainian War, Russian President Vladimir Putin says he’s going to ‘make it official’ by declaring war on Ukraine.  A new report says that the Russkies had almost captured President Zelensky in the opening days of the war.
  91. 2022 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II– Ukraine is now cracking down on traitors providing aid and comfort to the Russian invaders.  Time for ‘scorched earth’ tactics, the destroying of all materiel that would help the Russians, the poisoning of water sources, the destruction of crops, leave the new Red Army invaders in a cesspool of death.  Ukraine points out that the Russkies have lost at least 23,000 military personnel since its ill-fated invasion of Ukraine commenced 63 days ago.  Meanwhile, Kyiv reports that their flying ace- the so-called ‘Ghost of Kyiv’ who shot down at least six Russian jets in combat over the nation’s capital city- has now been shot down and killed himself.
  92. 2022 Friday H: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis III- The U.S. is providing military training to Ukrainians in Germany.  This, of course, will anger Russia.   Meanwhile, the Turks are cutting off access to the Black Sea as a growing problem of seaborne mines- implanted by the Russkies to hinder shipping to Ukraine- which means NO vessels in our out.
  93. 2022 Friday I: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– ‘Border Czar’ Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the border catastrophe for the past 392 days.  It has been 306 days since the ‘border czar’ arrived on scene for a few minutes’ photo op.  Tragic.  The cost of caring for the illegal alien invaders these past 119 days is $758,919,732.  The cost of caring for them since the VP and her boss, President Joseph R. Biden, took office is $42,504,725,475.  The number of illegal aliens who have arrived at our border since January 01, 2022, is in our estimate, 1,214,514.  The conservative low estimate of illegals living in the country is 47,838,931 whereas we believe the numbers closer to 95-130 million illegal aliens if not more.  These people drain resources meant for Americans, increase food scarcity, drive up crime, dumb-down our young people, overrun our hospitals and collapse our medical systems, and lower wages while driving up rents/mortgage costs. This is not right.  (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).
  94. 2022 Friday J: Foreign News-Overseas News I– The Iran nuclear deal supposedly hangs on the U.S. removing the terror designation from that country and its jihadist military apparatus.   Next, Russia announces its plan to abandon the ISS over the sanctions that the West and its other allies have slapped atop them.
  95. 2022 Friday K: Health and Medical Alerts– Hopefully, Joe Biden’s ‘misinformation board’ won’t censor or silence us but doctors around the world are attempting to find the cause of rising cases of hepatitis among young children.  They say they are leaning towards adenovirus as being the culprit whereas we are leaning towards increasing rates of COVID-19 vaccinations among young people that seemingly won’t or don’t stop.  The medical community is now urging the vaccination of wee babes for this Chi-Com-engineered virus.  This is insane.  The thing even more evil is that apparently, many of these children afflicted with hepatitis have required liver transplants.  Where oh where are these organs being harvested?  Communist China?  North Korea?  The aborted?  Wherever they are coming from, this ain’t right.  Poor Dr. Joseph Mengele- he was born a century too soon.   Speaking of abortion, progressives fear that IF Roe v. Wade goes down, nearly half of ALL U.S. physicians will not undergo abortion training.

  101. 2022 Friday Q: Joe Biden News I– President Joseph R. Biden and Mexico’s President Andrés Manuel López Obrador purportedly discussed the ‘unprecedented illegal alien invasion of the United States via the U.S.-Mexico border.’  While Joe Biden attempts to blame everyone else for his self-inflicted damages to the United States, Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, lays the blame squarely where it belongs: upon the shoulders of senile Joe Biden.
  102. 2022 Friday R: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– Joe Biden continues absorbing hit after hit after hit after hit.  Today, the inflation surge hit 6.6-percent, the largest jump since 1982.  Still, Joe hasn’t a clue as to what to do nor does he have the desire to do something to the positive if he did.   In other ‘Joe Biden Daily Disaster News,’ 72-percent of American voters say that ‘IF the Hunter Biden laptop stories are true, Joe Biden should be impeached and removed from office.’ Other polls report that his approval ratings continue their ongoing slide.  In other news, a new poll says that a vast majority of American voters are demanding TRANSPARENCY on Joe Biden’s declining mental state.
  103. 2022 Friday S: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster II– Joe Biden is still considering pandering to young holders of student loan debt (woe to those who have already paid off their loans).  To cover the costs of removing $10,000 debt from holders (woe to those with more than $10,000 student loan debt), the cost to taxpayers will be another $321 billion slapped atop the U.S. taxpayers- primarily the middle and working classes.  Thank you, f**king Joe Biden, thank you.  “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis calls the insane push to alleviate student loan debt ‘simply wrong.’  “America’s Governor” also alleges the Biden regime is installing an ‘Orwellian Ministry of Truth’ with which to perpetuate hoaxes and to silence its critics.  Rep. Rick W. Allen, R-GA 12th District, says of Joe Biden’s attempt to dismiss student loan debt that it’s a big political mistake.
  104. 2022 Friday T: Joe Biden Regime News I– As the election continues drawing nigh, the Biden regime is pushing the European Union to avoid an embargo of oil from Russia which will drive the cost of oil into the stratosphere.  The Biden regime wants the EU to slap the embargo onto the Russkies following the election so Democrats will somehow be able to retain power rather than go down in droves.
  105. 2022 Friday U: Joe Biden Regime News II– In between tears, Pentagon spokesperson Admiral John Kirby says there’s ‘no way that Russian President Vladimir Putin should be invited to the G-20.  Later in the day, we heard that Mr. Putin had been invited.   In other news, the Biden Dept. of Justice is going to challenge Alabama’s law banning tranny treatment for underage kids as well as prohibiting them from competing in scholastic sports other than in that of their gender.
  106. 2022 Friday V: Political News I– Senate Democrats are preparing to unleash $33 million in ad buys on the country.  Meanwhile, Senators Chuck Grassley, R-IA, and Ron Johnson, R-WI, are pushing DARPA to investigate the hacking of the DNC back in 2016.   Meanwhile, in a shocking interview between Sean Spicer and former U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr, the latter told the former that ‘there was not enough fraud to overturn the 2020 Presidential Election nor that the GOP should put Donald J. Trump forth as its 2024 standard-bearer.’  He did say, however, that he would vote for President Trump over the Democrat.
  107. 2022 Friday W: Political News II– Although NO one asked him, former President Bill Clinton is defending HIS flawed Russia policy while he was president.  His advisor back then- Dick Morris- encouraged Ukraine to surrender its nukes following the collapse of the Soviet Union with the guarantee that the United States would defend that country from all enemies.  (Note- all the Ukrainians had to do was to read U.S. history and to understand the millions of broken promises made by one administration after another.  Ask the Native Americans).
  108. 2022 Friday X: Political News III– Senator Bernie Sanders, DS-VT, is on the warpath against Senators Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, and Kyrsten Sinema, D-AZ.  He believes they are standing in the way of his and his fellow progressives’ view of the coveted ‘socialist utopia.’  F**k Bernie.  Speaking of the ‘socialist utopia,’ former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-HI 2nd D, says that ‘Joe Biden’s ‘misinformation board’ makes the Biden regime a DICTATORSHIP.   Thankfully, Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd District, is the one leading the fight to defund this appalling, un-American ‘ministry of truth.’  Good.
  109. 2022 Friday Y: Political News IV– To the irritation of liberals across the Old Dominion State and across the country, Lt. Gov. Winsome Sears, R-VA, is celebrating the many accomplishments of the Youngkin Administration.  We celebrate with them.  Next, Rep. Ralph Norman, R-SC 5th congressional district, informed Newsmax today that DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is a ‘pathological liar.’  Meanwhile, Alaska congressional candidate and former Governor Sarah Palin says that the ‘GOP must confront Dems who seek to take the United States DOWN.’
  110. 2022 Friday Z: Federal and State Court News– A U.S. court has sentenced ISIS ‘Beatle’ Kotey to life in prison for his murders of foreign journalists and captives.  Another judge has denied President Donald J. Trump’s request to dismiss the contempt charges against him in New York State and to force him to continue paying $10,000 per day in contempt of court charges.  Next, as her sentencing day looms, Ghislaine Maxwell has had her bid to have her conviction struck down denied.
  111. 2022 Friday AA: Popular Culture News–  James Corden will be leaving the “Late, Late Show,” sometime next year.   Next, the family of the filmmaker murdered by actor Alec Baldwin on the set of “Rust” is demanding the New Mexico sheriff conducting the investigation to take the shooting video of their loved one down from the Internet.  Speaking of the Internet, new analysis shows that with Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter, conservatives are going to gain whereas liberals are going to lose.  In fact, in such pathetic sniveling, various liberal pundits on various television networks have shown the world their crimes by whining that they may be the ones ghosted, blacklisted, and/or shadow-banned.  Folks, we don’t want to ban liberal speech.  No, we want more of it, so everyone sees how frigging insane they are while we want unlimited access to share opposing views.
  112. 2022 Friday BB: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1759 what with a $34 million jackpot on the line: 09, 11, 34, 49, 66 and Mega 15.  Out of 52,053 winning tickets, the highest winners were 37 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $424 apiece.

[i] We look forward to sharing the music of not only Waylon Jennings but of Willie Nelson, and the rest of the Outlaw country music scene. We definitely hope you will keep your eyes open for the day when we do.  You will love them all.

[ii] We offered the music of this famed West Coast band- the Grass Roots- beginning on Thursday, 06-February-2014 through Saturday, 22-February-2014.  We hope you will seek their music out by visiting whatever site you choose for the absolute best in rock music.  You will be glad you did.

[iii] As is the norm, we visit Martin Windrow’s amazing book, “The Last Valley,” De Capo Press (2006) as well as Time-Life Books for relevant information on this critical fight against communism.

[iv] Not sure when we promote the music of Aretha Davis but when we do, you will be the first to know.

[v] At some as yet undetermined point, we are going to go on an all-out Motown and Soul blitz, probably sometime before 2030 so we hope you will keep posted.  Otis Redding is one of the all-time greats and had he not died before his time could have been one of the music world’s megastars.

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

[vii] We promoted the music of this venerable British rock band as part of a series of interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This included the Small Faces, Faces, Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood, Jeff Beck, Steve Marriott, Humble Pie, and other interconnected parts.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[viii] See previous footnote.

[ix] The cops should have executed this Islamist POS on sight.  F**k him.

[x] The Atlanta Rhythm Section is another awesome American band, one we sure as heck hope to promote when and if we return to doing music again.

57. 2014 Friday: The West braced for a vote by the Crimean Peninsula to secede from Ukraine; calling the results all but a foregone conclusion, U.S. Secretary of State John “Lurch” Kerry urged Russian President Vladimir Putin and Russia’s Parliament against any offer to claim Crimea as their own. Sadly, for the Ukrainian people, the plea by the ineffective secretary of state went nowhere.

  63. 2020 Saturday: The COVID-19 Chi-Com lab-engineered Pangolin-Bat Flu, the Yellow Terror, continues sweeping the globe.  People in Sub-Saharan Africa are turning up with the disease, most likely transported there by the Chi-Coms who are busy colonizing the entire continent.  President Donald J. Trump reports that he has been tested for this rapidly spreading virus after coming into contact with an infected individual, a close subordinate of Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro.   His test is negative. At least 16 U.S. states have closed their schools in an attempt to staunch the spread of the Panda Pandemic.  Meanwhile, election season continues what with Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, D-VT, winning the Northern Marianas caucuses.  You go, Bernie, you go! 
  64. 2021 Sunday: Here we are, another day- stick around and discover what the Chi-Coms and their stooge in the White House are up to today- you know you want to know.   First, Department of Homeland Security Director Antonio Mayorkas orders FEMA to the southern border to help care for the thousands of illegal alien brats crossing the border.  It is akin to a ‘children’s crusade,’ one we must stop with minefields, antipersonnel and antivehicular barriers, ditches, trenches, foo gas pits, and heavy weapons positions.   Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador is asking the Biden administration, “WTF?”  He says the Biden administration policies are increasing the flow of transnational criminals, human traffickers, diseased people, and even terrorists.  It must stop.  We encourage the Mexicans to militarize their southern border.  Once people begin trying to force their way in, you shoot of them, they’ll stop coming.  F**k these illegals wearing these ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden shirts.   Speaking of the BORDER CRISIS, that dimwitted dingbat, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, says that ‘Joe Biden inherited the border crisis.’  The border was mostly secure whereas now, it’s a disaster.  Oh, if only UFW boss Cesar Chavez were alive, he’d have union members arrayed along the southern border beating the s**t out of these people as they tried to cross it.[xii]  Even RINO Senator Bill Cassidy, RINO-LA, says that ‘Joe Biden is responsible for the disaster on the southern border.’  (He’s trying to get back in the good graces of Republican voters after voting to convict President Donald J. Trump).
  65. 2021 Sunday A: Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden’s policies have led to the intentional flooding of the United States with hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens.’  Real Clear Politics White House reporter Phil Wegman says that ‘family encounters of illegal aliens went up 164-percent this past February.’  NOT GOOD.  In other federal government news, the National Guard Association head- Major General Michael McGuire- disputes U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin’s call for a permanent contingent of National Guard troops to defend the Capitol from disgruntled ‘Trump supporters.’  They want to pull out.  Speaking of the Biden administration’s desire to keep troops and fencing up around the capital, the residents of Washington, D.C. are protesting the illegal occupation of their city.  They want Fort Pelosi torn down and the troops returned home.
  66. 2021 Sunday B: Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton vows to continue the fight against the criminal actions of the Biden administration.   Meanwhile, U.S. Senator Joni Ernst, R-IA, is calling House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi a HYPOCRITE because the speaker is trying to overturn the election of Republican Marionette Miller-Meeks, R-IA 2nd congressional district as she won a close election.  Madam Pelosi is trying to strip Congresswoman Miller-Meeks of her seat and insert a rabid Democrat into her place.  Stand strong, Iowa!  Speaking of Pelosi, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA, blasts Pelosi as being little more than a hypocrite.  We say Speaker Pelosi is a loser, a feeble, senile old crone of a loser.  In other news, Arizona is going to conduct a FULL AUDIT of the 2020 Election after bags of shredded ballots were discovered by dumpster divers.  Karen Fann- president of the Arizona State Senate says that questions continue to arise over the authenticity of the election and that Maricopa County where much of the fraud occurred will have to answer for their actions.  We learned that approximately 660,892 ballots demand further investigation which would easily throw the state to President Donald J. Trump.  Speaking of election fraud, Phillip Kline of the Amistad Project says in so many words that new documents continue to arise showing collusion between Facebook and other social media entities with the Democrats to STEAL the 2020 Presidential Election.
  67. 2021 Sunday C: Across the country, one state after another are standing up to defy the “Pro-China Joe” Biden administration over its tranny rulings.  Utah, Michigan, North Dakota, Alabama, Mississippi, Montana, Texas, Missouri, Tennessee, and others are fighting back to protect girls’ and women’s sports from being overrun with sick males who claim they are ‘girls trapped in boys’ bodies’ (yeah, right).  Good for you, keep up the fight, we support you!  Speaking of sick people, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi is asking Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo to look into his heart and consider resigning.  Madam Speaker, this POS is not going to resign, even when his dimwitted twin Mayor Bill Di Blasio of New York City says Cuomo ‘should resign.’  The person who WON’T comment on “Killer Cuomo” is Vice President Kamala Harris, Joe Biden’s No. 2.  We thought she was big on, “WE BELIEVE SURVIVORS!  WE BELIEVE SURVIVORS!  WE BELIEVE SURVIVORS!”  So, what’s up, Kooky Kamala?  You don’t believe the survivors of Cuomo’s sexual depredations?
  68. 2021 Sunday D: Problems in Myanmar continue to escalate what with the junta sending militarized police into the streets to crush resistance to their criminal takeover of government.  At least 70 people have been killed by government forces with at least 12 shot dead over the weekend in Yangon.  The United States condemns such actions, yet Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi wants to maintain troops with heavy weapons capabilities in Washington, D.C., at her Fort Pelosi.   Speaking of violence, at a party in Chicago early this morning, 13 people were shot and two killed.  How about that ‘gun control?’  In other ‘violence news,’ protests erupt across the country on the one-year anniversary of Breonna Taylor’s death, many of the ‘protests’ becoming violent mob actions.
  69. 2021 Sunday E: The Biden administration continues to be exasperated over not hearing back from North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.  Maybe it’s because you called Kim a ‘thug’ and said you ‘wouldn’t talk to him unless he called you and said he was going to denuclearize his country.’  Kim doesn’t respect YOU, ‘President Biden.’  He knows YOU stole the election and are NOT the legitimate leader of our country.  Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin are traveling to Japan and South Korea to discuss North Korea and communist China.  After spending four days there, the two will head to Anchorage, Alaska, where they will be joined by National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan and their Chi-Com counterparts.  Guess they didn’t want to go to visit the Chi-Coms and bend over for the anal swabs.
  70. 2021 Sunday F: Even not yet a declared candidate in next year’s race for a Georgia U.S. Senate seat, NFL great Hershel Walker is leading communist candidate, Reverend Raphael Warnock, Democratic-Socialist.   Rev. Warnock- YOU cannot serve God and Karl Marx at the same time, sir.  We hope YOU lose.  Meanwhile, Alaska Senator Dan Sullivan, R-AK, is calling out “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s hypocrisy when it comes to NOT using natural gas, something the United States in general and Alaska in particular has massive reserves of, reserves that could be sold to foreign nations.  In other political news, Andrew Knaggs of Pacem Solutions International says that Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo is trying to create diversions such as lowering the age for seniors to obtain Chi-Vi vaccines to 60 from 65 so as to deflect heat from his shoulders for the 15,000-20,000 nursing home deaths HIS policies caused.  We won’t allow him to distract us, Mr. Knaggs.
  71. 2021 Sunday G: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 119,764,490 confirmed cases, +429,152, 2,651,578, confirmed deaths, +7,488, and 67,814,414 confirmed recoveries, +252,788.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,633,697 confirmed cases (same as yesterday), up 126,711 from yesterday’s reporting, 538,918 confirmed deaths (same as yesterday), UP 3,160, and 115,379,301 confirmed recoveries (we are freezing our daily adjustments until we see what’s happening tomorrow).[xiii]   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 210,441 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States (same as yesterday)- Senile Joe, in another 12 days, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the frigging ‘VID.
  72. 2021 Sunday H: 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: 3,620,894 confirmed cases, 56,351 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,646 confirmed cases, 451 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 352,614 confirmed cases, 5,183 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Delaware, aka the First State: currently, they have 90,381 confirmed cases, 1,507 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 818,548 confirmed cases, 6,008 confirmed deaths, and 776,099 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Czechia, one half of the former Czechoslovakia: 1,399,078 cases of the old Wuhan Waltz, the Xi Jinping debility: 23,226 confirmed deaths, and 1,209,799 confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, why even bother- they’re little more than manufacturers of biowarfare agents and will continue to be until the world takes them to the world court and charges them with the murders of more than 2 million people worldwide. 
  73. 2021 Sunday I: Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.837 per gallon, $3.551 in Hawaii, and $3.260 in Washington state.  Thank you, Joe, how about allowing fracking to continue as well as the Keystone XL Pipeline?  It would be beneficial for the people of this country.   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,051,534,906,670 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.  Cloward and Piven running amok.  The country is going to implode.
  74. 2021 Sunday J: Drew Brees- famed quarterback for the New Orleans Saints for 15 of his 20 years as a pro- announced his retirement today.  The first five years of his career, he spent with San Diego.  Apparently, he cannot tolerate the new Cancel Culture Era of the modern-day National Football League.   Could Colin Kaepernick be coming to New Orleans soon?  Conversely, will they make a trade for Russell Wilson?  We will have to see…
  75. 2022 Monday: Given the way things are going in the world, there could be an update, then again, there might not.  C’est la vie.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

As with any endeavor such as the AICPENDBLOG.COM, we goof up here and there and thus, we backtrack with today’s offering: “Rick Danko,” an album the bassist/vocalist with the band released on May 18, 1977.  We had to search around to find it and find it we did at Discogs, and this album is worthy of purchase by you.  Unlike Levon Helm, Danko penned all the tunes with a lyricist or two and had worthy musicians such as Ron Wood (Faces, Rolling Stones), Blondie Chapin (guitars, vocals), Eric Clapton (guitars), Doug Sahm of the Sir Douglas Quintet on guitars, Joe Lala (percussion, drums), Garth Hudson from the Band, and loads of others.  Some of our colleagues actually owned the vinyl version of this album and what we can tell you is that it’s extremely good.  Danko was a talented musician and vocalist and sung some of the Band’s best tunes such as “Stage Fright.”  We hope you will seek it out wherever you can find it and see if it’s right for you- you will be glad you did.

ENDNOTES:

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.

Today in History, Sunday, March 14, 2021, Blog Post:


[i] We began promoting the music of the famed California surf-rock band, the Turtles, beginning on Tuesday, 03-September-2013 through Friday, 13-September-2013.

[ii] We look forward to doing the music of this famed funk-rock band.  The Ohio Players are amazing. 

[iii] We will present the music of Chicago- and its various members’ solo careers- sometime in 2030 so we hope you will remain with us until then.

[iv] Not sure as to when the AICPENDBLOG.COM will promote the music of the Talking Heads but when we do, you will also see the music of Blondie and Aerosmith shared as well.  Please, keep your eyes open for the day this magnificent event occurs. 

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

[vi] We shared the music of the Stones beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members’ solo projects.  We sure as heck hope you check out the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Keith Richard, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, and Mick Taylor.  Ronnie Wood you can find during the presentation of the Faces.

[vii] We hope to do the music of this icon, Dr. John, so please remain vigilant for when we do.

[viii] No clue as to when we will do the music of Tom Waits.  Stick around long enough and who knows, you might find out.

[ix] Likewise, we expect to offer the music of Alice Cooper sometime between 2025-2027.  Please stay tuned.

[x] Perhaps one day, we will also do the music of Neil Diamond, one of the all-time greatest singer-songwriters.  You will be glad we did as this performer deserves accolades from the entire planet.

[xi] We hope to promote the music of the Atlanta Rhythm Section one day, too.  You will be glad for the day we do.

[xii] Arizona State Attorney General Mark Brnovich is leading the fight against Joe Biden’s immigration ‘rules.’

[xiii] Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.

36. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 05, 2022

63. 2021 Friday: One America News and Mike Lindell presented “Absolute Proof” today in which, ALL the evidence related to the Democratic Party-RINO Republican Party STOLE the 2020 Presidential Election for enfeebled Joe Biden in the hours following Election Day November 3, 2020. The evidence is precise, clear, and shocking and if people are genuinely interested in knowing how the Democrats, the RINOs and the Chi-Coms stole the election from Donald Trump and gave it to “Pro-China Joe” Biden, all one need do is to watch the show in its entirety.

Trump is planning a so-called ‘revenge tour’ which will see him touring the country in support of pro-Trump candidates while blasting the scumbag RINOs and Democratic Party bottom-feeders and lowlifes who STOLE the 2020 Presidential Election or who refused to view the abundant evidence of voter fraud and corruption.
  66. 2021 Friday C: Yesterday, the House of Representatives voted to remove Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene from her two committee assignments- Budget and the Education & Labor Committee.  All the Democrats voted in lockstep as did 11 Republicans.  Here is the list of Republicans who joined the other side: (a) Adam Kinzinger of Illinois; (b) Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania; (c) Fred Upton of Michigan; (d) Mario Díaz-Balart of Florida; (e) Nicole Malliotakis of New York (we are surprised she did this); (f) John Katko of New York; (g) Young Kim of California; (h) Chris Smith of New Jersey; (i) Carlos Gimenez of Florida; (j) Chris Jacobs of New York; and (k) Maria Salazar of Florida.  It is interesting to note that Kinzinger, Katko, and Upton also voted to impeach Donald Trump a second time.  Disgusting.   
  67. 2021 Friday D: Here are the numbers for the COVID-19 global pandemic, the planet first: 105,223,208 confirmed cases, +538,813, 2,293,263, confirmed deaths, +15,673, and 58,500,396 confirmed recoveries, +335,421.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 26,976,488 confirmed cases, up 184,705 from yesterday’s reporting, 461,253 confirmed deaths, UP 6,861, 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 17 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 56,441 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, you said you had a plan- where the f**k is it?
  68. 2021 Friday E: 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: 3,381,278 confirmed cases, 43,062 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,187 confirmed cases, 416 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 321,940 confirmed cases, 4,492 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the United States: Illinois- currently, they have 1,140,341 confirmed cases, 21,497 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 675,618 confirmed cases, 5,001 confirmed deaths, and 589,718 confirmed recoveries.   Speaking of the China Virus, the Pentagon says it will help ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden to deliver the Chi-Vi vaccine to the American people, something President Donald J. Trump planned to do.  Meanwhile, Roger Goodell, NFL commissioner, says he will open all 32 NFL stadiums as mass vaccination sites.  We at the AICPENDBLOG.COM will await everyone to receive their vaccinations first and then after inmates, illegal aliens, and everyone else in the groups Democrats and RINOs love, we will consider getting ours after we observe what happens to the Chosen Groups.  
  69. 2021 Friday F: For a laugh, let’s look at the Chi-Coms’ numbers- they say they have 89,619 cases, +241 from last week, 4,636 confirmed deaths (same as one week ago), and 83,467 confirmed recoveries, +527 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.’  Vermin-eating scum. 
  70. 2021 Friday G:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,148.24, UP 92.38 points (+0.30%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,856.30, UP 78.55 points (+0.57%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,886.83, UP 15.09 points (+0.39%). Markets are UP because they believe ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden is going to borrow TRILLIONS from the Chi-Coms.  We still predict that by June 2021, the triple whammy of a $15 minimum wage, ongoing pandemic politics, and massive illegal aliens numbers are going to tank the economy worse than 1929.  The price of GOLD is $1,815.20 per troy oz., +2.20 (+0.12%) while the price of SILVER is $27.04 per troy ounce, +0.02 (+0.06%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,137.80 per troy oz, +4.80 (+0.42%) while the price of COPPER is $3.64 per pound, +0.01 (+0.39%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,352.00 per troy oz, +0.60 (+2.62%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.14 per barrel, -0.06 (-0.11%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros while one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chi-Com yuan.  One-dollar U.S. = 0.000026 Bitcoin.  Next, one U.S. greenback = 74.55 Russian rubles.  Meanwhile, the Chinese-engineered pandemic pushes the U.S. trade deficit to a record high in 2020, to $679 billion, a record 12-year high. 
  71. 2021 Friday H: The Biden administration is purportedly going to return to the same immigration policies the Obama-Biden administration had back during 2009-2017 and that is to reopen detention centers where they will house illegal alien minors…in cages.  Why is it okay for Democrats to commit outrageous activities such as these when Republicans attempt to stop human traffickers and are vilified for doing it.   Meanwhile, Pennsylvania Lt. Governor John Fetterman files the paperwork to run for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by RINO Senator Pat Toomey in 2022.   Elsewhere, following Robin Hood’s lifting of curbs on buying GameStop stock at its site, shares begin going up yet again.
  72. 2021 Friday I: Although still under contract, Fox News Channel pulls longtime host Lou Dobbs off the air.  No word on whether he will ever return or not.  (We think he will go to Newsmax or OAN).  One of the reasons for his ‘dismissal,’ Smartmatic- the ALLEGED election-stealing software created in Venezuela to enable Hugo Chavez to steal elections has hammered Fox News and three hosts- Dobbs, Maria Bartiromo, and Judge Jeannine Pirro with a $2.7 billion defamation lawsuit.  Also included in the lawsuit are Rudy Giuliani, Mike Lindell, and Michelle Malkin.  Oh, wah, wah, wah, Smartmatic, YOU know what you did, you devious scumbags.  Next, in the New York House race, Claudia Tenney, Republican, finally overcame Congressman Anthony Brindisi and won her old seat back.  Congratulations.
  73. 2021 Friday J: Communist China demands the World Health Organization investigate the United States as the creator of the Chinese Virus, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, aka COVID-19, etc.  Wow.  The Chi-Coms will do anything to ward off blame for what they’ve done and with Joe Biden in the White House, they could get away with it.  Meanwhile, Cowboys for Trump leader is out of jail on bond, awaiting trial for the January 6, 2021, Antifa-led mob that stormed Capitol Hill.  Elsewhere, Joe Biden says he won’t restore the Bar Association’s role in vetting judges.  Not good.
  74. 2021 Friday K: Here are the numbers for the Mega Millions Draw #1631 with a jackpot of $54 million on the line: 14, 17, 28, 29, 44, and Mega 02.  Out of 67,548 winning tickets, the highest winners in California were three people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $6,017 apiece. 
  75. 2021 Friday L: Elsewhere, heavyweight boxing champion Leon Spinks died in Henderson, Nevada, at age 67 on this date.  Cause of death: advanced prostate cancer.  Spinks did what many people thought was impossible but after just eight pro bouts, Leon beat Muhammad Ali to win the WBA, WBC, and the Ring magazine’s heavyweight boxing titles in 1978.  Later in the year, he would lose it back to Ali in what many people believed was a ‘set-up’ for Ali to win the heavyweight titles three times.  Our opinion: NOT SURE.  Still, Spinks pro-record stood at 46 fights, 26 wins (14 KOs), 17 losses, and 0 draws.
  76. 2022 Saturday:  Join us later today…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Richard Thompson released his next studio album on February 11, 2013, the critically acclaimed “Electric.”  Once a guitar warrior, always a guitar warrior, Thompson knows how to crank ‘em out and this one is as good as it gets.  There is a ‘slim version’ and a ‘deluxe version,’ which is why we encourage everyone to get the deluxe as who does not enjoy additional tunes, right?  The album featured not only Richard on guitars and vocals but his current band consisting of Taras Prodaniuk (bass and vocals), Michael Jerome (drums and vocals), Buddy Miller (guitars), Stuart Duncan (fiddle, mandolin, and vocals), and several others- including Allison Krauss- to round out the sound.  Fans love this album just as we do which is why we encourage everyone to visit Amazon.com or whatever other site you do for the absolute best in rock music- you will be glad you did, of that, we are certain.  Enjoy.

ENDNOTES:

[i] Not sure when we will get around to doing the music of Three Dog Night but if we ever return to promoting the music of famed rock bands from the 1960s and the 1970s, we sure as heck will include this stellar band, one that is still performing to this day.  We saw them in 2019 and all we can say is “Wow.”

[ii] The Atlanta Rhythm Section is another awesome American band, one we sure as heck hope to promote when and if we return to doing music again.

[iii] Not sure when Guns ‘n’ Roses is coming but we hope we will still be alive and will get around to sharing them with the world.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

  18. 1941 Monday: As the Germans were beginning to increase the speed of the final push towards Moscow, STAVKA- the Soviet high command- began making changes in their military dispositions.  The Germans were trying to encircle the city, and everything hinged on Tula, one of the outlying towns west of the city.  Unlike the Axis troops, winter clothing was arriving in abundance for the Russian soldiers as were enormous quantities of military supplies. 
  19. 1942 Tuesday: Winston Churchill delivered a speech in London in which, he said, “I have not become the King’s First Minister to preside over the liquidation of the British Empire.”  Meanwhile, American-British troops occupy the city of Oran, Algeria, in French North Africa.  Elsewhere, in the rubble of Stalingrad, German General Friedrich Paulus final offensive kicks off at 3:30 a.m. as the German combat engineers hit their targets- the Chemist’s Shop and the Red House.  The first objective fell quickly, the second one became more protracted and would continue until the Soviet’s Operation Uranus began nine days later.
  20. 1944 Friday: During World War II, in occupied Holland in Rotterdam, riots break out as the Nazis begin sending 52,000 men to work in the German war industry.  Meanwhile, the ammunition ship USS Mount Hood (AE-11) exploded while moored at the Manus Naval Base in the Admiralty Islands in the South Pacific leaving 45 confirmed dead and 327 missing and presumed dead.

  31. 1975 Monday: The ore-hauling ship SS Edmund Fitzgerald and its crew of 29 mysteriously sank during a storm in Lake Superior with the loss of all on board her.  Meanwhile, the United Nations passes a resolution that equates ‘Zionism with racism.”
  32. 1978 Friday: At the 2:14 minute mark of round seven of their heavyweight-boxing title match, Larry Holmes knocks out Alfredo Evangelista to retain the WBC heavyweight boxing title of the world.  In beating the Uruguayan heavyweight, Holmes record improved to 29-0 while Evangelista’s record dropped to 23-3-1.  
  33. 1982 Wednesday: Three days before its dedication, the newly finished Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. welcomed its first visitors.  Elsewhere, Soviet leader, Leonid I. Brezhnev died at age 75.      
  34. 1984 Saturday: The U.S. Postal Service issued a commemorative stamp of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
  35. 1989 Friday: The Germans begin demolishing the Berlin Wall.  Hopes are high as this appears to be the death of communism.  Little would anyone know that the Chi-Coms would pose a much more direct threat to all lovers of freedom and human rights around the world within a quarter century.
  36. 1990 Saturday: The movie comedy, “Home Alone,” starring Macaulay Culkin, premiered in Chicago.
  37. 1991 Sunday: The Cleveland Browns set the record for the largest lead blown—23-0—losing to the Philadelphia Eagles 32-30.  The Browns’ quarterback, Bernie Kosar ends his NFL record of 308 straight passes by throwing an interception.

  39. 2008 Monday: President George W. Bush and his wife, Laura, welcomed Barack Hussein and Michelle Obama to the White House for a nearly two-hour visit; the president and president-elect conferred in the Oval Office, while the current and future first ladies talked in the White House residence.
  40. 2009 Tuesday: John Allen Muhammad, mastermind of the 2002 sniper attacks that killed 10 in the Washington, D.C. region underwent execution on this date.
  41. 2010 Wednesday: In Indonesia, President Barack Hussein Obama addresses U.S.-Muslim ties.  Of course, the United States could do better.  Sure thing, there Barack.  Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates announces the U.S. could remain in Iraq beyond 2011. 
  42. 2011 Thursday: In Quebec, 200,000 Canadian college and university students boycott classes to protest a massive raise in tuition fees.  Meanwhile climate change activists rejoice that President Barack Hussein Obama rejected the Keystone XL pipeline.   Elsewhere, Human Rights Watch accuses the government of Bashar al-Assad of rampant human rights abuses and crimes against humanity. 
  43. 2012 Saturday: With the finalization of Florida’s votes, Barack Obama wins reelection by gaining enough Electoral College votes to clinch it.   Elsewhere, in Sri Lanka, a prison uprising leaves at least 27 people dead and countless more injured.   
  44. 2013 Sunday: As Typhoon Haiyan heads towards Vietnam, the communist government there evacuates 600,000 people away from the coastline.  Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State John F. “Lurch” Kerry says, “significant progress is being made in talks with the terrorist nation of Iran.”  When they say this means NOTHING is occurring that is any good.  Nuke Iran NOW!  Meanwhile, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu calls the deal ‘no good’ and Iran ‘bad.’
  45. 2014 Monday: After two years of heightened tension between Japan and communist China[iv] over some islands in the East China Sea, the two leaders of both countries—Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and communist China’s President Xi Linping—shake hands during the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Summit.    Elsewhere, President Barack Hussein Obama continues selling the United States out by endorsing strict Net Neutrality Protections for an Open Internet which meant he was giving up U.S. control of the Net.     
  46. 2015 Tuesday: In Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the fourth Republican presidential primary debate occurs, sponsored by the Wall Street Journal.   The participants were Governor John Kasich, Governor Jeb Bush, Senator Marco Rubio, businessman Donald J. Trump, Dr. Ben Carson, Senator Rand Paul, Senator Ted Cruz, and businesswoman Carly Fiorina.  As usual, Trump came out towards the top even though the crowd at times booed him, but it also applauded him.
  47. 2016 Thursday: Astroturf protests against the election of Donald J. Trump continue for the second day.  Democrats want everyone to think they sprang up from the grassroots level when everyone knows they are bought and paid for by scumbags (allegedly but our sources say so) George Soros and other leftwing POS.  Elsewhere, House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisconsin, says he’s ‘excited to work with President Trump.’  Yeah, right, Paul.  Lying prick.
  48. 2017 Friday: Facing allegations of sexual misconduct, comedian Louis C.K. said the harassment claims made by five women that the New York Times detailed in a report “are true,” and he expressed remorse for using his influence “irresponsibly.”         
  49. 2018 Saturday: Authorities in Northern California said 14 additional bodies had been discovered in the ruins from a fire that virtually destroyed the entire town of Paradise.  Democrats continue blaming PG&E for the out-of-control wildfires when in fact they are guilty of causing them by (1) having destroyed California’s timber industry, (2) placing expensive and insane restrictions on PG&E when it comes to clearcutting fire-prone areas around their transmission lines and (3) being in bed with the environmentalists who fund their campaigns and then call the shots.  Time for Californians to reclaim California.     
  50. 2019 Sunday: As Iran continues imploding atop its citizens, President Hassan Rouhani announces the discovery of a new oilfield with an estimated 53 million barrels that will put the nation back in the dough that U.S. President Donald J. Trump seemingly wants to keep from them.  We suspect the story is embellished by a criminal regime. Meanwhile, in neighboring Iraq, Iraqi human rights defenders report that since October 1 when violence broke out across the country, at least 319 slain and more than 15,000 injured.  What the heck is going on there? 
  51. 2020 Tuesday:  Here we are, Election Day PLUS EIGHT- what are the Chi-Coms and their Democratic allies up to?  Stick around and we will discover their depredations together…more Chi-Vi?  Well, the House and Senate have returned to negotiating a COVID-19 relief bill.   Paying for it will be part of “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s promised tax increase of $4 trillion.  Meanwhile, Michelle Obama calls for ‘national unity’ then lambastes Trump supporters for being ‘pro-life,’ ‘pro-hate,’ ‘pro-chaos,’ and ‘pro-division.’  That’s an excellent way to achieve national unity there, Madam “I hate America with all my heart.”  Speaking of “Pro-China Joe” Biden, his campaign threatens to sue the GSA over them not accepting the ‘results’ of the 2020 Presidential Election and thus giving their so-called ‘transition team’ the required space for them to set up offices and to get the charade underway.  Elsewhere, Ben Rhodes, former Obama boy, says that ‘President-Elect Joseph R. Biden (“Pro-China Joe” to you) is already conversing with world leaders.’  This is a clear violation of the Logan Act, and the communist-loving POS should face charges.  Finally, “Pro-China Joe” Biden says he will rejoin the highly corrupt World Health Organization on Day One.
  52. 2020 Tuesday A: As the ongoing attempt to steal the 2020 Presidential Election (as well as other elections) continues, Mark Steyn says on the Rush Limbaugh Show that Alaska is going to ‘resume counting’ votes in the presidential race after going dormant for nearly a week.  President Donald J. Trump has a humongous lead in the 49th state so the Democrats have had to go out and beat the tundra searching for additional votes to overturn the votes of the reliably red state.  This is criminal.   Elsewhere, has-been actor and anti-Trumper actor Robert De Niro says he’s confounded by Trump supporters who support (Adolf) Hitler’s playbook.’  WTF is wrong with you, Bobby?  Meanwhile, fired FBI hack Andy McCabe testifies before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee (from his home) about Crossfire Hurricane.  IF we were McCabe, we’d tell Chairman Lindsey Graham ‘to go f**k himself,’ and adding ‘in a month, maybe two, I will be back at the FBI and will be investigating YOU.’  We believe that is where we seem to be heading… Finally, we learn that MSNBC talking head Jon Meacham has been writing most of “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s speeches all the while commenting on ‘how good they are’ up until someone exposed him as the ghost writer.  What a loser, what a POS.    
  53. 2020 Tuesday B: On the world stage, Italy threatens its populations with the return of draconian Chinese Virus restrictions claiming things are getting out of control in that country.  Meanwhile, 160 human rights organizations are hitting the International Olympic Committee- aka the IOC- with demands for a boycott of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics over how they mistreat the Uighur Muslim population in particular and rampant human rights abuses in general.  Doubt anything is going to change.  Beijing will have the pleasure of holding the Olympics as a totalitarian society just as did Nazi Germany in 1936, when they held the summer games.  Elsewhere, the United States imposes additional sanctions on the regime of Bashar al-Assad, the dictator of Syria, for waging war on his own people.    
  54. 2020 Tuesday C: Ratings at Fox News Channel are tanking what with even Tucker Carlson’s and Sean Hannity’s shows down by two million viewers the previous night.  Judge Janine Pirro is still being punished so we hope she will tell FNC to go ‘f**k themselves’ and head over to Newsmax.  They must build up their lineup of weekend shows.  Most of us who write for the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day- aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM- have sworn an oath to not watch a single show on that network.  FNC wants to brown-nose ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, and others like them, then good, you made your beds, go lie in them but no one will ever watch Neil Cavuto, Chris Wallace, or any of the other shows.  World to FOX News: GO screw yourselves.
  55. 2020 Tuesday D: Tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1606 with a $152 million jackpot on the line- here are the numbers: 23, 45, 53, 58, 62, and Mega 13.  More on the winners when they appear.  
  56. 2020 Tuesday E: Here are today’s Chi-Com Horseshoe Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 51,292,597 confirmed cases, UP by 540,243 cases, 1,269,199 confirmed deaths, UP by 7,893 deaths, and 33,400,848 confirmed recoveries, UP by 250,732 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 10,311,361 confirmed cases, UP by 136,952 new cases, 242,936 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,328 new deaths, and 5,804,648 confirmed recoveries, UP by 35,424 new recoveries.
  57. 2020 Tuesday F: 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: 989,389 confirmed cases, 18,044 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 16,124 confirmed cases, 222 confirmed deaths, and today, NO mention of confirmed recoveries- that’s unusual.  Finally, in the Ever Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 124,802 confirmed cases, 2,577 confirmed deaths, but like California, the thuggish 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, Michigan: 245,252 confirmed number of cases, 8,094  confirmed number of deaths, but no mention of confirmed number of recoveries- that’s Governor Gretchen Whitmer for you.  Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there.  Here they are: 320,661 confirmed cases, 2,684 confirmed deaths, and 309,767 confirmed recoveries.
  58. 2020 Tuesday G: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 29,420.92, UP 262.95 points (+0.90%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,553.86, DOWN 159.93 points (-1.37%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,545.53, DOWN 4.97 points (-0.14%).  The price of GOLD is $1,877.70 per troy oz., +1.30 (+0.07%) while the price of SILVER is $24.32 per troy ounce, -0.147 (-0.60%).  The price of PLATINUM is $885.90 per troy oz, -6.80 (-0.76%) while the price of COPPER is $3.15 per pound, -0.0025 (-0.08%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,470.50 per troy oz., +6.50 (+0.26%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.56 per barrel, +0.20 (+0.48%).  Today, COCOA is $2,391.00 per metric ton, +0.24 (+1.44).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.61 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.85 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency, a known fact which is why the world must disengage with them and bring our supply chain home- ASAP.
  59. 2020 Tuesday H: Newsmax has declared North Carolina for President Donald J. Trump and with Real Clear Politics pulling of Pennsylvania from Biden’s win column yesterday, things are not looking quite as good for the senile former vice president as they did yesterday.  Meanwhile, at the U.S. Supreme Court, conservative justices indicate they will uphold parts or all of Obamacare.  We have heard both Chief Justice John Roberts and Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh support upholding the law.  What a disappointment.
  60. 2020 Tuesday I: Following the firing of U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper the previous day, three other Leftist hacks in the Pentagon also submitted their resignations.  Acting Under Secretary for Defense Policy Dr. James Anderson, Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security Mr. Joseph Kernan, and Chief of Staff to the Secretary of Defense Jen Stewart submitted their letters of resignation to Acting Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller.  Taking over the position formerly held by Mr. Kernan is retired U.S. Army General Anthony Tata, someone the leftists hate due to comments about Islam while Barack Hussein Obama was president.  Wah, wah, wah.  
  61. 2021 Wednesday:  Join us later for today’s update…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Fairport Convention album we have for you today is one that has been reissued numerous times: “Moat on the Ledge: Live at Broughton Castle ‘81” (November 10, 1985).  This was an early reunion effort from this much-loved British band.  The lineup featured Simon Nichol (guitars, vocals, dulcimers, and piano), Richard Thompson (electric guitars and vocals), Dave Swarbrick (fiddle, viola, mandolins, and vocals), Dave Pegg (bass, mandolins, guitars, and vocals), and Bruce Rowland and Dave Mattacks (drums, percussion, and piano).  Early vocalist Judy Dyble guested on one song as did guitarist, Ralph McTell.  This is a fine album; one we encourage everyone to seek out and to then add to their collection.  We believe you will be extremely glad that you did.  Enjoy.

  1. 382 Monday: Emperor Theodosius declares Christianity to be the state religion of the Roman Empire.
  2. 1519 Saturday: The first meeting between Hernando Cortez and Aztec Chief Montezuma takes place in Mexico City.  Both men are wary of one another.  Montezuma believes the strange man possibly to be a god whereas the Spanish conquistador views his opposite as a means to vast wealth.  The Aztecs trust in their numbers while the Spaniards believe in cold, hard steel, gunpowder, armor, horses, and artillery.  Can a few hundred Spaniards albeit backed with native allies defeat an entire culture of millions?  We shall see.

  20. 1939 Wednesday: A failed attempt on the life of Der Fuhrer, Adolf Hitler, takes place in Munich, Germany.

  44. 2006 Wednesday: Donald Rumsfeld resigns as U.S. Secretary of Defense.
  45. 2010 Monday: Shameless Nancy Pelosi plans to run for House Minority Leader.  Why the Democrats would elect this person to anything is beyond any of us.   Meanwhile, whack job Keith Olbermann is set to return to MSNBC following his recent suspension following the discovery that he had ‘donated money to Democrat politicians,’ something the network prohibits its employees from doing.
  46. 2011 Tuesday: Syrian army troops prepare to retake the nation’s third largest city, Homs, from the ISIS scumbags holding it and its population hostage.  It is expected to be a long, bloody fight.  Meanwhile, a woman accuses GOP presidential hopeful Herman Cain of ‘inappropriate touching.’  Many believe that Governor Mitt Romney, also vying for the nomination, is the unseen hand behind these allegations.
  47. 2012 Thursday:  Sadly, it’s true, Barack Obama won a second term this past Tuesday and Elizabeth Warren, well-known Native American princess- managed to unseat Republican Senator Scott Brown in the race for the U.S. Senate.  We were hoping the headlines might change but nope, what is, is.  Likewise, Tammy Baldwin, Wisconsin, becomes the first openly gay homosexual serving in the U.S. Senate, too.  The races appeared to be decided but some questions arose about irregularities.
  48. 2013 Friday: Palestinian investigators claim their former leader, Yasser Arafat, did not die of old age or ill health; they believe Israel killed him because his exhumed body contained elevated levels of the radioactive element polonium-210.
  49. 2014 Saturday:  North Korea releases Americans Matthew Todd Miller and Kenneth Bae; Bae went to prison for two years after arrest for missionary actions, while Miller suffered detainment in April for ‘hostile acts’ after tearing up his visa and requesting asylum.   The North Koreans released them into the hands of Barack Obama’s director of national intelligence, the devious James Clapper.   Meanwhile, as tensions between the West and Russia continue to grow over the Russian rape of the Ukraine, final president of the now-defunct Soviet Union- Mikhail Gorbachev- says the ‘world is on the brink of a new Cold War.’
  50. 2015 Sunday: President Barack Obama announces to wild applause from climate change activists that he will reject the Keystone XL pipeline that would bring Canadian oil to the Gulf Coast.   As if playing on Obama’s words, the World Bank announces that climate change could drive 100 million of the world’s inhabitants into poverty.  Say it ain’t so.
  51. 2016 Tuesday: By the end of the night on Election Night, Donald Trump held a 254-215 advantage in the Electoral College casting Hillary Clinton’s presidential aspiration in doubt.   Hillary Clinton’s supporters are thrown into shock and grief as the numbers continue coming out that show their girl went down in smoldering defeat.  Add to that the fact that the GOP maintains majorities in the House and Senate which drives the Dems into a frenzy of protests.    
  52. 2017 Wednesday: Five women accuse comedian Louis C.K. of sexual assault.  He is yet another victim of #MeToo.  Meanwhile, following last week’s assault, Senator Rand Paul’s doctors upgrade his status to six fractured ribs and both lungs bruised.  His attacker pleads NOT GUILTY to charges of 4th Degree Assault. 
  53. 2018 Thursday: Tens of thousands of people fled a fast-moving wildfire in Northern California that would become the state’s deadliest ever, killing 86 people; authorities said the community of Paradise had been nearly destroyed by the flames.  Meanwhile, a federal judge in Montana nixes the Keystone XL Pipeline yet again.  Meanwhile, with the firing of Attorney-General Jeff Sessions, Democrats in the House- and their shock troops in the streets- demand protection of Robert S. Mueller’s ‘probe’ into ‘Trump-Russia Collusion,’ the now debunked scam and sham investigation.  The Dems want to protect the senile former FBI boss who put many people into prison who did not deserve to be there.  Finally, President Trump says he will end all asylum claims by illegal aliens who cross the border without going through ports of entry.  Good.  Build the wall and deport them all…        
  54. 2019 Friday: As Democrats continue snapping about his heels, President Donald J. Trump says he will ‘probably release the full transcript of his phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, most likely next Tuesday.’  Meanwhile, House Republicans send a list of witnesses they would like to testify to Adam Schiff, Jerrold Nadler, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, all Democrats.  They would be denied.
  55. 2020 Sunday: Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-SC, says that the committee will probe numerous allegations of voter fraud marring the 2020 Presidential Election.  Speaking of election fraud, the totally in-the-tank-for-the-Democrats Facebook removes the account of a pro-Trump group, Boots on the Ground to Protect the Integrity of the Election, a group with 350,000 followers- advocating to stop the theft of the presidential election.  Facebook, if Trump and the Republicans come out on top, we hope they use anti-trust actions to break you up.  NO one gave you the right to stifle free speech and Mark Zuckerberg is little more than a candy-assed pansy.    Meanwhile, voters in Georgia are getting suspicious phone calls asking if they voted and for whom- authorities believe this to be yet another scheme with which to steal the election.  Finally, the leftist dimwit Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Baby Evita, aka AOC, birth name Sandy Cortez, blasts the failed Lincoln Project for not converting enough conservative voters to rabid Democrats.  All considered, BOTH AOC and her (terrorist) squad and the Lincoln Project are a bunch of losers.
  56. 2020 Sunday A: In Democrat-controlled battleground states like Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, as well as Georgia, Trump supporters are in the streets demanding justice in the election.  It is one thing to lose and quite another to lose because the Democrats have stolen it.  Interesting note: Joe Biden has more votes for president in these states than did Democrat senatorial candidates so it’s clear that electoral shenanigans have been going on as the Dems were unable to steal Senate seats.  What’s more, are we to believe that in Pennsylvania that citizens of that state voted for “Pro-China Joe” Biden so their jobs in fracking, natural gas production, and every industry and job connected to fossil fuel production would vanish like they did in 2009?  We think not.
  57. 2020 Sunday B: Sadly, Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek is dead at 80 from pancreatic carcinoma.  Moving on, Marxist former Bolivian president Evo Morales is set to return home after being banished.  In the Ivory Coast, the government took to the streets to arrest members of the opposition  party for treason, corruption, and for being members of the opposition party, something that ditz b***h AOC would like to do in the United States.  Remember: there are more of us than there are of them.
  58. 2020 Sunday C: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Yellow Bat Flu- the -so-called Pelosi Pox the aka ‘Go to Chinatown and hug a Chinaman’ (a moronic act of virtue-signaling) disease:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 50,111,147 confirmed cases, +422,796, 1,253,707, confirmed deaths, +5,557, and 32,892,365 confirmed recoveries, +258,624.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 10,066,916 confirmed cases, up 147,063 from yesterday’s reporting, 241,186 confirmed deaths, UP 875, and 5,740,386 confirmed recoveries, UP 27,153.  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: 975,535 confirmed cases, 17,970 confirmed deaths (number readjusted DOWN from last week), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 15,939 confirmed cases, 220 confirmed deaths, and 12,083 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 121,220 confirmed cases, 2,552 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: New Jersey- currently, they have 256,395 confirmed cases, 16,429 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries- why don’t you report the statistics?  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo is living there: 319,241 confirmed cases, 2,674 confirmed deaths, and 308,563 confirmed recoveries.
  59. 2020 Sunday D:  Here are the NFL scores, recap of Thursday Night Football first: (1) Green Bay Packers (5-2) @ San Francisco 49ers (4-4)  5:20 P.M.  (2) Baltimore Ravens, 24 (6-2) @ Indianapolis Colts, 10 (5-3) 10:00 A.M.  (3) New York Giants, 23 (2-7) @ Washington Redskins, 20 (2-6) 10:00 A.M.  (4) Chicago Bears, 17 (5-4) @ Tennessee Titans, 24 (6-2) 10:00 A.M.  (5) Denver Broncos, 27 (3-5) @ Atlanta Falcons, 34 (3-6) 10:00 A.M.  (6) Carolina Panthers, 31 (3-6) @ Kansas City Chiefs, 33 (8-1) 10:00 A.M.  (7) Houston Texans, 27 (2-6) @ Jacksonville Jaguars, 25 (1-7) 10:00 A.M.  (8) Detroit Lions, 20 (3-5) @ Minnesota Vikings, 34 (3-5) 10:00 A.M.  (9) Seattle Seahawks, 34 (6-2) @ Buffalo Bills, 44 (7-2) 10:00 A.M.  (10) Las Vegas Raiders, 31 (5-3) @ Los Angeles Chargers, 26 (2-6) 1:05 P.M.  (11) Miami Dolphins, 34 (5-3) @ Arizona Cardinals, 31 (5-3) 1:25 P.M.  (12) Pittsburgh Steelers, 24 (8-0) @ Dallas Cowboys, 19 (2-7) 1:25 P.M.  Sunday Night Game: (13) New Orleans Saints, 38 (6-2) @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 3 (6-3) 5:20 P.M.   Monday Night Football tomorrow night: (14)  New England Patriots (2-5) @ New York Jets (0-8) 5:15 P.M. Monday Night.  
  60. 2021 Monday:  One year ago today, we were watching the Democrats steal not only the presidential election but several Senate elections, as well.  What are they doing this year?  Anyhow, stick around for the results of Monday night’s Powerball Draw #908 with a pot of $151 million.   Also, the hapless Chicago Bears (3-5-0) are going into Pittsburgh to play the equally-struggling Steelers (4-3-0).  Somehow, we think the Bears are going to pull a win out of the fire tonight.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Fairport Convention decided to reunite after a brief, record-company-imposed hiatus and on August 17, 1985, the band released “Gladys Leap.”  The core nucleus of the band featured Simon Nichol (guitars, vocals, dulcimers, and piano), Dave Pegg (bass), and Dave Mattacks (drums).  Joining the trio were Richard Thompson (electric guitars), Ric Sanders (violins), and several others to add additional flavor to the proceedings.  One tune- “Head in a Sack”- would become a fan favorite for fans of Richard Thompson.  Overall, the album is delightful, and a fine return to form by a much-beloved British folk-rock band.  We hope you will seek this album out and add it to your collections- you will be glad you did.

ENDNOTES:

[i] General McClellan, aka “Little Mac” to his troops was among the numerous federal generals that President Lincoln had to terminate because they were horrible commanders.  “Little Mac” put the lives of his troops above everything which is why they so revered him but when it came to showing fighting spunk, he failed to attack time and again which might have ended the war far sooner.

[ii] The Atlanta Rhythm Section is another awesome American band, one we sure as heck hope to promote when and if we return to doing music again.

[iii] We began promoting the music of the famed California surf-rock band, the Turtles, beginning on Tuesday, 03-September-2013 through Friday, 13-September-2013.

[iv] We began promoting the music of the Move- and of Electric Light Orchestra, Wizzard, Roy Wood, and Jeff Lynne- beginning on Wednesday, August 12, 2020, until Thursday, November 05, 2020.

[v] 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.

[vi] 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.

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

2021 Wednesday: Friends, please stick around and we’ll discover together whatever the hell the Democrats are doing to rape our nation this day. There is hope, however, my friends, when a ‘president’ loses college-aged students who chant “F**k Joe Biden, f**k Joe Biden, f**k Joe Biden,’ you know you are going down in flames and what is even better, is that everyone who supports the loser or who built the loser up is going down with the loser. I cannot wait to see Nancy Pelosi booted out on her ass. Woman to woman, YOU got to go, ‘Evil Nancy!’ Chef Goldie McNamara.

  53. 2014 Monday: Many children across ten states have undergone hospitalization due to Enterovirus, EV-D68; children with asthma are particularly at risk for complications.  The virus reportedly has found new life in the U.S. thanks to President Barack Obama[v] allowing Third World Central American children to flood the U.S. from across the Mexican border.  Elsewhere, Ray Rice was let go by the Baltimore Ravens and suspended indefinitely by the NFL after the release of a video in which the running back struck his fiancée, Janay Palmer, in an elevator in February 2014.
  54. 2015 Tuesday: Prime Minister David Cameron announces that a recent drone strike in Syria took out two British citizens serving in the Islamic State.  Both men—Reyaad Khan and Ruhul Amin—died in the British drone strike that occurred on August 21, 2015.  The duo had made recruitment videos for the ISIS scumbags.
  55. 2016 Thursday: NASA launched its OSIRIS-REX space probe today, destined to rendezvous with the asteroid 101955 Bennu in 2018.  It would arrive on scene on December 03, 2018.  Once there, it was to collect mineral samples from the surface and if all goes well will return to Earth orbit and eventual landing in Utah at a military facility sometime in 2023. 
  56. 2017 Friday: Hurricane Irma regained Category 5 status, battering Cuba with 160-mph wind, and taking aim on the Miami area; the death toll across the Caribbean climbed past 20 after the storm ravaged islands including St. Martin, St. Barts, St. Thomas, Barbuda, and Anguilla.  In one of the country’s largest evacuations, officials in Florida told more than 5 million people to leave their homes ahead of the hurricane; parts of interstates 75 and 95 northbound were bumper-to-bumper.
  57. 2018 Saturday:  In Egypt, a high court hands down 700 sentences, including 75 death sentences, for a violent Islamist protest put on by the Muslim Brotherhood at Rabaa al-Adawiya Square on August 14, 2013.  As always, the protesters claim it was a ‘peaceful sit-in’, but they began running amok and General Abdel Fattah al-Sissi responded with troops and killed loads of violent rioters for which, he deserves commendation.  Al-Sissi now is president of Egypt, and the country is in peace.   
  58. 2019 Sunday: Why Marvel would be promoting homosexuality is beyond us, but the mayor of Rio De Janeiro banned a comic book in which two men were swapping spit.  However, the Brazilian Supreme Court overturned the mayor’s ban.  Sad.  Elsewhere, tensions increase between India and Pakistan as Prime Minister Modi continues pushing his ‘make Hinduism great again’ agenda, what they call Hinduvta.
  59. 2020 Tuesday: President Donald J. Trump criticized the top Pentagon brass today when he said that they ‘engage in useless wars in order to boost defense contractors’ profits.’  This is true and has been true since President Dwight D. Eisenhower, Republican, warned the country about the ‘military-industrial complex,’ meaning there is loads of money for everyone involved in procuring and fulfilling defense contracts.  Military profiteers are the most shameful, disgusting people because they have no problem sending your loved ones to wage wars we never seem to win anymore.  Hence, money continues flowing around the clock.  God bless you, President Trump.  Speaking of President Trump, he is visiting Florida and North Carolina today while “Pro-China Joe Biden” is conducting a remote town hall somewhere.  Speaking of both Trump and Biden, a poll conducted by USA Today and Suffolk University says that ‘people expect that Trump will crush Biden in their debates by a 47-to-41 percent margin.’  Friends, it is bigger than that, people just don’t want to answer these polls.
  60. 2020 Tuesday A: Fascinatingly, Democrats and anti-Trumpers are beginning to recoil from Jeffrey Goldberg’s article in the once-staid magazine, The Atlantic, a story the magazine published on September 03, 2020.  Mr. Goldberg- quoting the usual suspects- anonymous sources- claimed he was told (and to her discredit, Jennifer Griffin of Fox News Channel backed him up) that in 2018 on a visit to France to visit U.S. World War I military cemeteries, President Trump supposedly called the fallen ‘losers’ and ‘suckers’ for having served and worse, for having died.  Both Goldberg and his magazine got about three solid days of Trump-bashing but now, people are pulling back from it because NO has the balls to step forward (where are you, Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, you pansy) and anyone who once supported the claims are quickly withdrawing from the claims in fear of being made liars- which they are.  President Trump may have slandered former Sen. John McCain, but McCain was an anti-Trumper from the start and the man who originally helped Hillary produce the “Trump-Russia Collusion” bogus theory.  We think McCain was a POS, too and believe that Mr. Goldberg, like most liberal ‘news media’ (aka Fake News) is full of crap, stinking, festering crap and U.S. military personnel know it.
  61. 2020 Tuesday B: We learn that over the Labor Day weekend in Chicago, 53 people were shot, 10 killed, including an 8-year-old girl.  Elsewhere, in New York City, at least 10 people were shot, including a six-year-old child who had both legs shattered when an errant drive-by fusillade of lead ripped through them.   Elected Democrats hem and haw over the numbers of deaths via gun violence and do everything possible to blame President Donald J. Trump for the crimes in THEIR locales.  Portland, Oregon, saw more violence over the Labor Day weekend and people are begging for it to stop yet Democratic leaders lack the balls to do something about it.  Time to bring in ex-Black Water Mercs and have them take out the scumbags, do what the Columbian people did when they finally could stand drug lord Pablo Escobar’s crimes any longer.  Fight fire with worse fire.
  62. 2020 Tuesday C: Rochester, N.Y., Police Chief La’Ron Singletary announces that he and his entire command structure are resigning over events surrounding the recent death of black PCP arrestee Daniel Prude who died in custody following a spit hood placed over his head approximately one week before his death.  Elsewhere, another black police chief- this one in Dallas- puts in her resignation papers.  Reneé Hall handed in her walking papers, effective November 2020.  Elsewhere, in Washington, D.C., the Pelosi Mob continues fighting the targeted COVID-19 bill put forth by the Republicans.  Don’t worry, Madam Speaker, WE KNOW who is responsible for NO money going to those who need it, and we won’t forget.
  63. 2020 Tuesday D: Here are today’s Chi-Com Horseshoe Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 27,392,203 confirmed cases, UP by 191,260 cases, 897,713 confirmed deaths, UP by 7,873 deaths, and 18,337,409 confirmed recoveries, UP by 217,307 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 6,411,392 confirmed cases, UP by 16,259 new cases, 192,451 confirmed deaths, UP by 405 new deaths, and 3,450,818 confirmed recoveries, UP by 20,996 new recoveries.  We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.  It is also clear that misreporting the news has Americans believing at least 30 million Americans- OR MORE- have died from Xi Jinping’s Bat Flu which is not true which was said a week ago, so it shows misinformation is doing its job among the gullible and ill-informed citizenry.
  64. 2020 Tuesday E: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 742,833 confirmed cases, 13,764 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 9,957 confirmed cases, 86 confirmed deaths, and 3,028 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 80,623 confirmed cases, 2,044 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 444,751 confirmed number of cases, 32,971  confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.   The governor of New York, the drooling moron Andrew Cuomo now is trying to blame President Donald J. Trump for all the deaths when he is the one who sent Bat Flu-infected people into rest homes where the most vulnerable people are, uh, we mean, were.
  65. 2020 Tuesday F: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,500.89, DOWN 632.42 points (-2.25%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 10,847.69, DOWN 465.44 points (-4.11%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,331.84, DOWN 95.12 points (-2.78%).  The price of GOLD is $1,939.10 per troy oz., -4.10 (-0.21%) while the price of SILVER is $26.80 per troy ounce, -0.191 (-0.71%).  The price of PLATINUM is $902.00 per troy oz, -8.30 (-0.91%) while the price of COPPER is $3.01 per pound, -0.0155 (-0.51%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,273.50 per troy oz., -10.50 (-0.4%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $36.61 per barrel, -0.15 (-0.41%).  Today, COFFEE is $131.65 per metric ton, -1.10 (-0.83).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.84 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.85 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency.
  66. 2021 Wednesday: Friends, please stick around and we’ll discover together whatever the hell the Democrats are doing to rape our nation this day.  There is hope, however, my friends, when a ‘president’ loses college-aged students who chant “F**k Joe Biden, f**k Joe Biden, f**k Joe Biden,’ you know you are going down in flames and what is even better, is that everyone who supports you or who built you up is going down with you.  I cannot wait to see Nancy Pelosi booted out on her ass.  Woman to woman, YOU got to go, ‘Evil Nancy!’  Chef Goldie McNamara.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

If one waits long enough whenever ‘original album series’ repackaged offerings are released, at some point, the record company will combine them together into a larger package with which to double the earnings by enticing the holdouts to spend their money.  Thus, we Jethro Tull’s “Original Albums Series Volumes 1 & 2” that came out on January 24, 2020.  The packaging features Volume 1 which includes “Songs from the Wood,” “Heavy Horses,” and “Stormwatch,” Ian Anderson’s first solo album, “A,” and “The Broadsword and the Beast.”  Volume 2 includes “Under Wraps,” “Crest of a Knave,” and “Rock Island,” as well as “Catfish Rising,” and “Roots to Branches.”  The frugal purchaser can nab 10 albums all in one place for a decent amount of cash which is absolutely astounding.  We hope you rush out and buy this amazing offering- you will be glad you did.

ENDNOTES:


[i] We promoted the music of the Association beginning on Wednesday, 25-September-2013 through Monday, 07-October-2013.  These guys were amazing, we hope you will check them out and consider adding them to your growing collection of albums and CDs.

[ii] We began promoting the music of the Grateful Dead- including Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Phil Lesh- beginning on Tuesday, 30-August-2011 through Wednesday, 11-January-2012.  Then, we did a second series featuring more albums by this fabled San Francisco band beginning on Friday, 09-August-2013 through Monday, 19-August-2013.  At some point, we will have to do a third series as the music from this band never ends.  Please, seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[iii] The Atlanta Rhythm Section is another awesome American band, one we sure as heck hope to promote when and if we return to doing music again.

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

[v] Many believe Barack Obama should be disqualified as a president because most believe he was born outside the United States which would ban him from ever seeking the highest office in the land.  At the very least, an asterisk should be placed by his name in all U.S. history books.

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

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

IF the Chi-Coms and their Democratic stooges can collapse the American middle classes, they will be well on the way to toppling us a nation and putting socialism in its place

  58. 2015 Tuesday: Amazon.com joins the bandwagon against the Confederate flag following the shooting committed by Dylann Storm Roof the previous week.  Although many Americans see, the flag as part of the nation’s history—from the Civil War—many among the American people see it as a symbol of racism and want it removed.  Elsewhere, NASA’s Mars Odyssey completed its 60,000th orbit around the Red Planet.  The spacecraft entered orbit around the fourth planet from the Sun on October 23, 2001.

  62. 2019 Sunday: Upset Czechs, numbering around 250,000 take to the streets- not for a Black Lives Matter protest but because they are angry at the nation’s Prime Minister Andrej Babis.  The protest occurs in Letna Plain Park and is the biggest public protest since the days when the communists ruled the country.  Elsewhere, U.S. Acting Secretary of Defense Patrick M. Shanahan stepped down from his position on this date.  A member of NO political party, he served under President Donald J. Trump from January 01,2019 until today.
  63. 2020 Tuesday: The FBI announces that the rope- not calling it a NOOSE- found in NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace’s garage has been there since last October.  Since the garage assignments were only made recently, they cast doubt on the ‘act’ being deliberate.  We will keep the readership posted.  UPDATE ON PREVIOUS STORY: HATE CRIME HOAX.  Next, the European Union says it ‘may ban Americans from visiting Europe’ over COVID-19 concerns.  Okay.  Finally, President Trump visits the southern border to celebrate more than 200 miles of new border wall going up and the fact that numbers of illegal aliens attempting to cross is down by 86-percent.  At a Students for Trump rally in Arizona, it is clear the president has loads of support.
  64. 2020 Tuesday A: The Kung Flu, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, aka the COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis, aka all manner of other names, continues causing problems.  Here are today’s stats for the globe: 9,154,232 confirmed cases, 473,650 confirmed deaths, and 4,585,022 confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 2,373,274 confirmed cases, 122,654 confirmed deaths, and 735,365 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which the world famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM- has chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, Golden State first: 183,073 confirmed cases, 5,580 confirmed deaths, but as has become the norm, Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom won’t release the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on him!  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 816 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 669 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor David Ige for refusing to play Blue State politics.  Finally, in left-wing moron Governor Jay Inslee’s Evergreen State, here are the stats: 29,350 confirmed cases, 1,284 confirmed deaths, but NO reported confirmed recoveries.  The lack of information about recoveries tells one all they need to know.
  65. 2020 Tuesday B: Here are today’s Stock Market close: the DOW Jones Industrial Average: 26,156.10, UP 131.14 points (0.50%); next, for the NASDAQ: 10,131.37, UP 74.89 points (0.74%); and the S&P 500: 3,131.29, UP 13.43 points (0.43%).
  66. 2021 Wednesday: How soon before the new American ‘Gestapo’ shows up in the middle of the night, flashing their Nacht und Nebel badges to signify we no longer have any rights and can be arrested in the dead of darkness?  Remember: there are more than 75 million of us and it’s going to take them several years before they can accomplish the Replacement Theory.   Stick around to uncover the events of the day along with the rest of us…

ENDNOTES:


[i] 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.

[ii] We began promoting the music of the Grateful Dead- including Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Phil Lesh- beginning on Tuesday, 30-August-2011 through Wednesday, 11-January-2012.  Then, we did a second series featuring more albums by this fabled San Francisco band beginning on Friday, 09-August-2013 through Monday, 19-August-2013.  At some point, we will have to do a third series as the music from this band never ends.  Please, seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[iii] The Atlanta Rhythm Section is another awesome American band, one we sure as heck hope to promote when and if we return to doing music again.

[iv] Not sure when we will promote the music of the Knack but one day, we most surely will.
