  53. 2017 Friday: President Donald J. Trump acknowledged for the first time that he was under federal investigation as part of the expanding though phony probe into Russian election meddling as he lashed out at the top Deep State operative in the Justice Department overseeing the fraudulent probe.   Meanwhile, he tightens up on the open relations with communist Cuba that his predecessor Barack Hussein Obama had loosened while he was in office.  Finally, Amazon.com announces its plan to buy Whole Foods for $13.7 billion, becoming an ever-greater monopolistic octopus.  How come Democrats don’t want to hammer them with a huge antitrust suit?
  54. 2018 Saturday: Communist China announced 25 percent tariffs on $34 billion in U.S. imports, including soybeans and beef, in response to President Donald Trump’s tariff hike on a similar amount of Chinese goods.  The Chinese also scrapped agreements to narrow the trade surplus with the United States.  Elsewhere, after a frantic search for a missing woman in Indonesia, horrified villagers find her body consumed by a massive python.  This is but the second documented case of a humongous python engulfing a full-grown human being.

  57. 2020 Tuesday: President Donald J. Trump signs an executive order to begin the reformation of the nation’s police agencies.  Democrats screech ‘IT’S NOT ENOUGH’ and that ‘TRUMP IS A RACIST.’  Ah, well, we know the Dems will never accept anything President Trump does.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 298,182 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 161,467 deaths

  63. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.227 per gallon, $2.962 in Florida, $3.978 in Hawaii, and $3.625 in Washington state.[xix]    Let’s look at one other location- Minnesota: $2.858.  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- Lesotho: $3.766 per U.S. Gallon.[xx]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,413,747,338,681 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 which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after India, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Singapore with $168 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).[xxii]
  64. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Friends, today is Day #85 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the border calamity and not to have shown up for a single day’s work on the job.  Still, President Donald J. Trump will be visiting the Texas-Mexico border with Governor Greg Abbott, Republican, on June 30.  Many are speculating as to whether the laughing jackass border czar will rush down to the border for a quick photo op or won’t show up thereby proving our point, she is little more than a low IQ, empty pantsuit, the former ‘mattress’ of California Democratic Party bigwig, Willie Brown.  Ah, well, speaking of Governor Abbott, the patriotic Texas governor said that President Donald J. Trump set a ‘high mark’ for control of the southern border.
  65. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Meanwhile, One America News shared the latest stats today concerning the border cataclysm: (1) Cost this day of caring for millions of illegal aliens: $585,083,840.  (2) Total Cost this Year of caring for the tidal wave of illegal aliens: $182,502,932,480.  (3) Total numbers of illegals who have crossed into the U.S. this year: 1,870,509.  (4) Estimated total number of illegals sucking away at the teats of the American taxpayers: 35,870,508.  Note, we have said since 2009 at the blog’s inception that the total numbers were 35-50 million; now, we believe we have 75-100 million river-swimming, fence-climbing, and/or desert-crossing illegals in the U.S.  IF we deported ALL the illegals gobbling away at the benefits of being an American, rents and mortgages would precipitously drop, wages would go up, our students would become better-educated and would move through the educational system at a faster pace, Social Security and Medicare would be strengthened, and there would be far fewer Americans drawing unemployment and welfare checks.  There would also be less crime, fewer drunken driving fatalities, less rapes- especially of minors, fewer break-ins, less shop-lifting, you name it, our country would be in such better shape, it’s difficult to comprehend until you start comprehending it.  Yet, they want them here which to us verifies the veracity of the Replacement Theory.  Still, we say, BUILD THE WALL AND DEPORT THEM ALL.  NOW.  Update- “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis, R-FL, is sending law enforcement officers to Texas and Arizona to help defend the southern border.  God bless him!
  66. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Fred Fleitz, CEO of the Center for Security Policy, made the witty observation that the ‘Europeans LOVE decrepit old Joe Biden’ because ‘America is back.’  America is back meaning the U.S. will be footing the bill while the Europeans are allowed to renege on their obligations.  Speaking of Joe Biden overseas, the summit between he and Russian President Vladimir Putin failed to go the distance today.  Instead of going the full five hours promised by the ‘drooler-in-chief,’ it went about half that.  President Putin held a press conference first and ripped the U.S. leader a new one in subtle and witty ways while Joe then came out, held his, and we must say, the Aduhelm must have been working well today because we would give his press conference a C+ grade.  (Note- we don’t expect to see the feeble old perv for about a week now as he tries to recover from this challenging trip).   The two leaders apparently agreed to a return to the arms control treaty negotiations (all the while the Chi-Coms[xxiii] continue building a massive arsenal) as well as to the exchange of diplomats once again.  Former Rep. Peter King, R-NY 2nd congressional district, said it was ‘way too early for Joe Biden to be meeting with President Vladimir Putin.
  67. 2021 Wednesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information– Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom, DS-CA, says that the ‘new system for checking his citizens’ status for the Chi-Vi vaccine are NOT a vaccine passport.  (Good- because we are not going to get this crap anyway- see you in November, governor).  Next, a new report says that at a pop-up vaccination site in New York City, medical personnel carried out 899 ‘jabs’ using defective vaccines.  Say what?  Yet another reason to avoid this crap.  Elsewhere, the U.S. government has spent more taxpayer monies buying 14 million Johnson & Johnson vaccines for overseas export.  Meanwhile, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says he is ‘yet to get a response from either the National Institute of Health (NIH) or from Health and Human Services on his questions about the China Virus.  Senator- you won’t get a peep from either the NIH or HHS.  Next, brave scientists are calling for investigations into various ‘scientific journals’ that dismissed the Wuhan Institute of Virology lab leak theory.’  Excellent.  ‘Follow the science,’ folks…
  68. 2021 Wednesday J: Joe Biden Regime News I– “Kooky Kamala” Harris apparently trying to force a far-left agenda into the American economic system.  Not good, folks, not good.  Next- and this is the best one of the day- senile old Joe Biden is encouraging Americans to report radicalized family members, friends, and neighbors to the authorities so the RACE POLICE can swoop in and spirit them away in the dead of night to one of their black site secret prisons.  This smacks of the Gestapo’s Nacht und Nebel policy by which political dissidents disappeared during the dark of night.  Wow.   Meanwhile, the Biden regime releases its first list of top diplomatic nominees for overseas deployment.  Wonder where Rahm “Dead Fish” Emanuel will go?  Japan doesn’t want the POS.  Finally, Joe Biden is reversing yet another Trump Era policy by providing increased protections to tranny students, i.e., mostly ‘chicks with dicks’ students, what we used to call ‘exotics.’
  69. 2021 Wednesday K: Joe Biden News– When reporters asked fumbling Joe Biden if he STILL THOUGHT that Russian President Vladimir Putin was a ‘killer,’ the usurper in the White House did his best “Kooky Kamala” Harris imitation and broke out in maniacal laughter before forgetting the question.  Friends, this is embarrassing to have a mentally-incapacitated dimwit in the White House.  This is, indeed, the SHAME of our country.  Speaking of our national embarrassment, Joe Biden claims to have given President Putin the ‘what for’ during their short meeting.  Question: when everyone returns to the United States, will the U.S. Congress demand that Joe’s interpreters appear before congressional committees and tell the lawmakers what was really said and how poorly Joe’s performance was?[xxiv]  Remember, after President Donald J. Trump met with his Russian counterpart, Democrats were demanding the interpreters testify to exactly what was said during the two leaders’ private meeting.  (Note- we don’t expect this will ever happen).
  70. 2021 Wednesday L: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger feeling intense heat down his backside is now going to investigate the missing ballots transfer documents and chain of custody.  From what we hear, there were more illegal ballots in Fulton County, Georgia, than anywhere else in the state and it’s clear that if an HONEST and IMPARTIAL audit is conducted, we will learn the truth.  We await more information…
  71. 2021 Wednesday M: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– New reports suggest that law enforcement recruitment is way, way down, while retirements are skyrocketing.  We imagine many law enforcement officers could find employment in Arizona and Texas, especially if those two states are going to continue fortifying their frontiers and creating their own statewide border patrols.
  72. 2021 Wednesday N: Political News I– New York City finds itself being consumed by a self-made problem: in midtown Manhattan, tens of thousands of ‘urban outdoorsmen’ have set up tent cities.  Wow.  Next, the House GOP seeks a review of BIG TECH’S close ties to the Chi-Coms.   In other news, Texas Democrats are launching a last-ditch effort to stop the Constitutional Carry Bill becoming the law of the Lone Star State.  Screw the little wimps. Elsewhere, Chicago Mayor Lori “The Loser” Lightfoot is seeking to halt alcohol sales after midnight.  Uh, what will this accomplish?  People will buy their liquor at 11:59 P.M.   Finally, Pennsylvania Democrat Rep. Madeleine Dean, 4th congressional district, is NOT going to seek the seat of outgoing RINO Senator Pat Toomey.
  73. 2021 Wednesday O: Political News II– Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, proposes changes to Dem-backed voting bill newly renamed from the “For the People Act” to the “John Lewis Voting Rights Act” which means it’s still the same old shit, repackaged, and returned to the shelf.  NO one buy this stinking piece of crap bill.  Meanwhile, Rep. Greg Steube, R-FL 17th congressional district, working on behalf of the family of Ashli Babbitt says information on her shooting death at the U.S. Capitol Building during the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021, is difficult to come by.  He is seeking answer as to whom the Capitol Hill police officer who shot her dead is and the circumstances as to WHY he shot her, an unarmed woman, attempting to climb through a broken window.  Moving on, GOP House and Senate members return to Washington, D.C., to hold their weekly conference.  Republicans- how about this: how about demanding answers as to WTF the Capitol Hill protesters are still locked up, mostly in solitary confinement?  IF you don’t defend these people, one day, the government will come for you.[xxv]
  74. 2021 Wednesday P: NASA, Space, and UFO News– Noted UFO filmmaker Jeremy Corbell says that when the UFO report comes out later this month, it will reveal uncomfortable truths for the American people.  Mr. Corbell told Rob Schmitt on Newsmax that the New York Times has said that the report will leave out the possibility of the technology being seen is a secret U.S. military program much less a Chi-Com or Russian program.  That will leave us with but one simple truth: it’s from somewhere else, NOT of this Earth.  Look, if it were Chi-Com, Russian, Iranian, or North Korean, do you think they would not already be ruling the planet?  Of course it’s from somewhere else and that means there is little to nothing we can do about it except await its arrival.  Elsewhere, SpaceX supposedly ignored an FAA warning regarding the launch of its Starship SN8 launch in December 2020.  We are sure Elon Musk had good reasons to blow off the FAA.
  75. 2021 Wednesday Q: Big Tech News– Amazon.com has introduced its new surveillance system to grocery stores.
  76. 2021 Wednesday R: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– Tonight, we have the Super Lotto Draw #3569 with a $55 million jackpot on the line as well as the Powerball Draw #855 with a $40 million pot on the line.  Stay tuned for tonight’s results…okay, here are the numbers for the Super Lotto: 01, 06, 21, 38, 39, and Mega 10.  Out of 147,354 winning tickets, the highest winners were THREE people who had FIVE numbers but no Mega for a prize of $16,603 apiece.  The tickets were sold at (1) Shell in Visalia, CA 93277; (2) Sunrise Market and Gas, San Diego, CA, 92102; and (3) Ronnie’s Market and Deli, Stockton, CA 95204.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball: 19, 29, 34, 44, 50, and Powerball 25.  In California, out of 40,139 winning tickets, the highest winners were 21 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $555 apiece.
  77. 2021 Wednesday S: Sports News– NBA star, point guard, Chris Paul of the Phoenix Suns is in COVID-19 protocols at the moment.  Not sure as to when he will be able to return.
  78. 2021 Wednesday T: Observation of the Day– Friends, there is BUT ONE WAY to STOP the tidal wave of illegal aliens pouring across the southern border and that is, the GOP must make a tactical decision with which to aid the overall strategy in combatting Joe Biden’s crimes.  We must make the tactical effort to reach out to the illegal aliens who are here, to make it appear that we are going to bring them into OUR FOLD.  We must make the Democrats believe we are recruiting illegals to become future GOP voters like the Democrats recruit children for immoral purposes.  We must enlist, recruit, and dragoon illegal aliens into becoming solid GOP members as once the Democrats realize they are losing on this battlefront, the trains, planes, buses, automobiles, and even empty freighters will be running 24/7/365 to get illegal aliens out of the country.  Once they begin shipping them out, we can throw the ones who helped us aboard those outbound modes of travel in the same way once the Indian Wars were over, General George Crook threw the Indian scouts onto the trains carrying the beaten Native Americans to the reservations.  It is a matter of saving the country so let’s make some tactical decisions NOW so our strategy can become reality at a future date.
  79. 2022 Thursday: Stick around and discover the events of the day along with us…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Mike Love was the next Beach Boy to release a solo album, “Looking Back with Love” on October 08, 1981.  While Mike has sung some of the most well-known Beach Boys tunes, his songwriting talents were not always as good as the Wilson Brothers or Alan Jardine or Bruce Johnston, thus he gets panned by the critics.  Mike also was not as forward-looking as was say, Carl, in that he favored performing the ‘golden oldies’ while Carl and Dennis pushed the band to move forward into the future.  Still, fans of Mike Love ‘love’ the album which is why we have it here for your enjoyment.  We hope you will seek this one out and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure.  We think you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

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.

  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

  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.

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.

This, of course, will require time and diligence on our parts just as it will require patience on the part of our critics. We see the writing upon the wall, Biden administration.

  78. 2021 Monday F: PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN NEWS– The state of Arizona is suing the ‘Biden administration’ over its flawed border policies.  They are suing the corrupt regime on environmental grounds as the hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens pouring across the southern frontier are leaving heaps of garbage, fecal matter, urine, discarded clothing, condoms, beverage containers, food wrappers, and all sorts of other garbage that is destroying the pristine environment along the Arizona-Mexico border.  Next, President Joe Biden taps two openly hostile critics of President Donald J. Trump to lead key agencies.  First, he picks Tucson, Arizona’s chief of police, Chris Magnus to lead Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) and Ur Jaddou to head U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.  Both of these POS will push open borders policies.  Speaking of open borders, today is Day 19 that Border Czar “Kooky Kamala” Harris has failed to hold a press conference so she can share her ideas for fixing the southern border crisis.   
  79. 2021 Monday G: PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN NEWS II– The first family’s dog, Major, is scheduled to get another round of training for all the people he has bitten since entering the White House.  What more proof does one need that the dog is a prop for a feeble old coot like President Joe Biden?  Next, as the White House continues trying to convince the American people that another $2 trillion bill- this one, the INFRASTRUCTURE FIASCO BILL[xv]– is somehow good for them, Biden’s henchmen are going to target the home states of GOP leaders for a concerted push.  (Note- Joe, we don’t want this POS bill.  What you are going to do is that borrowing money from our enemies- that’s right- I flipping said it- the Chinese- you are going to allow them to become de facto owners of U.S. businesses and landlords of the American people.  Chef Kilgore).   Meanwhile, we learn today that RINO wife of the late Senator John S. McCain- Cindy- could get an ambassadorship to the United Nations Food Program.  Say it ain’t so, Joe!  Big flipping deal.   Finally, President Joe Biden is going to nominate former Pentagon employee Christine Wormuth to become the U.S. Army secretary.  If she gets the gig, she will become the first woman to hold this position.  YOU couldn’t find a tranny for secretary of the Army, Joe?
  80. 2021 Monday H: POLITICAL NEWS I– Fascist Governor Gretchen Whitmer, DS-MI, is peeved today at her Chief Operating Officer Tricia Foster basically told her boss to ‘go f**k herself’ by taking her family to Florida to vacation during spring break and then possessing the chutzpah to post photos of her vacation to online social media sites.  According to Herr Whitmer, NO one in Michigan government is to disobey her by going to the EVIL, COVID-19-infested Florida.  Oh, well.  We predict Governor Whitmer is going to face a Nicolae and Elena Ceausescu moment when the citizens of her state drag that Frankenstein-headed b***h (the only thing she’s missing are the bolts in her neck) and her family out and liquidate them.   This is the fate of ALL dictators.[xvi]  In other news, former DNI John Ratcliffe says that ‘Hunter Biden’s Ukrainian connections and his laptop are NOT Russian disinformation.’ 
  81. 2021 Monday I: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEA NEWS– the Iranians are running around jabbering and swearing over the recent BLACKOUT that befell their main nuclear facility in Natanz.  Israel, if YOU are going to f**k with these scumbags, how about setting a chain reaction off within the program so the entire country blows the hell up?  Now, that would be something we would all love to see.  Meanwhile, the ‘Biden administration’ is negotiating with Mexico, Honduras, and Guatemala (Trump already did this) to obtain their help in stopping the tidal wave of illegal aliens flooding from the three Central American countries through Mexico and into the U.S.  We believe we should militarize the southern border and throw back every wave of illegals invading our country.
  82. 2021 Monday J: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS– After a traffic stop goes awry in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, people are criticizing the moron judge in the murder trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin in the death of George Floyd because with all the problems that have occurred in the area as well as across the country because he did not sequester the jury in this case.   Next, New York State continues to forge ahead with its incredibly STUPID plan of giving checks as high as $15,600 apiece to illegal aliens who may have been affected by the ‘VID when U.S. citizens have lost homes, businesses, and many of them are living out on the streets.  Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Gov, aka the “Gropin’ Gov” must go now.  In other news, Victor Davis Hanson says that ‘all organizations and institutions have all gone WOKE.’ 
  83. 2021 Monday K: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– President Donald J. Trump says it is imperative that the GOP reclaims both the House and Senate in 2022.   Elsewhere, following the accidental shooting death of a young black man in Minnesota last night, three counties are placed under curfew and the National Guard is now patrolling the streets.  Police in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota (see previous), said that the female officer who shot 20-year-old Duante Wright thought she was drawing her taser as he sought to flee and instead shot him.   In other curious news, the U.S. is warning the People’s Republic of China NOT to make a move on Taiwan.  We shall see.  Russia in the Ukraine, Iran flexing its muscles, and North Korea going mum, no one knows what the heck is going to happen.  Finally, as the volcano continues erupting on St. Vincent, ferries are taking people away from the island BUT ONLY if they have vaccinations for the Chi-Vi.  We guess loads of people are going to die.  WTF?
  84. 2021 Monday L: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS II– Taiwan reports that the Chinese flew 25 warplanes into their airspace earlier today.  Unlike the time when Chinese leader Hu Jintao was reaching out to Taiwan’s leadership, it’s clear that Xi Jinping is pulling a full-on Adolf Hitler, trying to intimidate neighboring countries around the borders of the People’s Republic of Chi-Com Land or actively trying to subvert them so as to force them into the fold.   Taiwan’s air defenses locked onto the PRC warplanes while tracker planes flew along with them.  War is coming, folks, war is coming, and we have, uh, President Joe Biden?  WTF!

  91. 2022 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis- The ongoing war in Ukraine is raising the specter of global famine as Russia is among the biggest producers of fertilizers across the world.  Atop this conundrum, Russian President Vladimir Putin warned the West in general and the U.S. in particular that ‘Russia cannot be isolated nor held back from pursuing its goals.’  Putin’s goals are evil: the mayor of Bucha reported that at least 400 bodies of Ukrainian civilians have been recovered from where Russian forces massacred them.  The Russians claim they massacred no one but the Russkies never change.  Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken- and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky- say they cannot confirm claims that Russia used chemical weapons on civilians in Mariupol.  However, former Republican presidential candidate Jim Gilmore says that the ‘U.S. may have to provide chemical weapons to Ukraine.’
  92. 2022 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the border disaster for the past 375 days.  She has not arrived on scene to do the job in, uh, 289 days.  Yet, she still receives a paycheck.  Wow.  By our account, the cost of caring for the illegal aliens since the beginning of January 2022 is in our estimate, $649,272,590 while the cost of caring for the illegals since President Joseph R. Biden and Vice President Harris held up their right hands with their left hands on the Bible and took the oath to preserve and to defend the country, we estimate the cost of caring for the illegal alien invasion army at $42,395,348,333.  Imagine what that money could do for the American people?  Since January 01, 2022, we estimate that 1,036,752 illegals have arrived at the U.S.-Mexico border and that the conservative estimate of illegal aliens living in our country as you read this at 46,428,238.  We contend that there are between 85-to-125 million illegal aliens in the country, which is a horrendous number, something that seems to be on purpose to topple the U.S.  Time for patriots of all backgrounds to defend the country.  (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).
  93. 2022 Tuesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I- Taiwan is reading the tea leaves and recognizes that as Russian efforts in Ukraine continue to sour, a second front is about to open up thus Taipei is putting out a pre-invasion handbook with which to prepare their people for the inevitable.  We suspect that Beijing is weighing the consequences if they lose capital warships in the Straits of Taiwan.  Will they continue building armaments for future plans or will they roll the dice as Vladimir Putin has?  In other news related to China, Warner Bros. is taking loads of heat from WOKE Americans over censoring Dumbledore as gay at the request of Beijing.
  94. 2022 Tuesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I- In yet another blow to Democrat dreams and hopes, a new Axios-Ipsos poll says that less than 10-percent of American voters believe that COVID-19 is a severe problem in the country at present.  Give the Dems time and by October, the country will be beset by another wave of COVID-19, possibly the Frankenstein variant,[xxvii] mentioned a week ago in England and then instantly sent into the shadows.  This could become a two-year cycle every election year where new strains of COVID-19 come out with just enough time to cause problems for elections.
  95. 2022 Tuesday J: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News- (1) Pfizer: $53.11 (2) AstraZeneca: $68.61 (3) Novavax: $58.10 (4) Merck & Company: $85.63 (5) Johnson & Johnson: $179.90  (6) BioNTech: $169.13 (7) Moderna: $159.50.
  96. 2022 Tuesday K: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News- (1) Raytheon: $102.60 (2) Boeing: $176.28 (3) General Dynamics: $243.82 (4) Lockheed Martin: $467.55 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $463.28.
  97. 2022 Tuesday L: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News- (1) Ansell Ltd.: $25.08 (2) DuPont: $68.46 (3) 3M: $148.58 (4) Honeywell: $190.99  (5) Teijen: $1,313.00.
  98. 2022 Tuesday M: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News- (1) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $22.52 (2) Beyond Meat: $43.58  (3) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $67.95.
  99. 2022 Tuesday N: Big Box Store Stock Prices (Follow the Money 5) News- (1) Wal-Mart: $153.23 (2) Lowe’s: $204.14 (3) Home Depot: $306.29 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $581.36 (5) Amazon: $3,015.75.
  100. 2022 Tuesday O: Political News I- Governor Kevin Stitt, R-OK, signed a bill prohibiting abortion in the state.  In other news, Republicans are calling out U.S. Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm over her sneaking components of the Green New Deal into ‘law’ by making them regulations that are not passed by lawmakers thus, it is difficult to overturn or to remove them. Still, when Donald J. Trump was in the White House, for every new regulation passed, two had to be removed.  Boy, those were the good old days.
  101. 2022 Tuesday P: Political News II- Democrats continue enduring self-inflicted problems via their electing crooks and scumbags.  Federal agents scooped up Empire State Lt. Governor Brian Benjamin for campaign finance fraud.   Upon being charged, the Lt. Governor resigned.  What the heck is wrong in the Empire State?  Former Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo was a POS, state Attorney-General Letitia James is a POS, current Governor Kathy “Heil Hitler” Hochul certainly is a POS just as current Big Apple Mayor Eric “Sleazebag” Adams is and his predecessor, Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio most definitely was. It would appear that the Empire State has rapidly passed Illinois as the most corrupt state in the Union.  They have lost other losers such as former Governor Eliot Spitzer and former Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, and an extensive list of others.  How embarrassing.
  102. 2022 Tuesday Q: Political News III- It appears that Senator Mitt Romney, RINO-UT, is aware that his popularity is waning.  He is pondering his political future.  You still have a couple of years to straighten up, Mitt, but NO true Republican would ever vote for you again, especially if you tried to run for the presidency again.   In other news, Twitter has temporarily banned Jack Posobiec over his Disney ‘grooming’ parody.  Speaking of Disney, up until the state passed the Parental Rights in Education law donated $190,000 to GOP candidates whereas now, no more.  We suspect they donate loads of money to Democrats, however… Texas Department of Education issues guidelines for library books in its schools.  No perversion here, folks.
  103. 2022 Tuesday R: Mass Shootings News- This morning, a shooter carried out an attack on New York City’s subway system using smoke bombs to confuse his intended victims and a handgun to shoot them.  He shot 10-11 people but killed none.  Approximately 16 people were injured in the melee and while fleeing the scene.  Many of the victims appeared to be Asian and the shooter was identified as a black man named Frank James.  Law enforcement later found a U-Haul truck from Arizona and are carrying out a massive manhunt for Mr. James.  Currently, there is no belief that the mass shooting is related to terrorism.  (Note- if it were a white guy, it would be white supremacism run amok).  Regarding this unfortunate incident, Congresswoman Claudia Tenney, R-NY 22nd congressional district, says that attacks ‘follow the undermining of the NYPD.’
  104. 2022 Tuesday S: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw- Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1754 what with a $106 million jackpot on the line: 02, 08, 14, 20, 31, and Mega 17. Out of 59,520 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were 75 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $237 apiece.
  105. 2022 Tuesday T: Thanks for joining us today, we are attempting to become a bit more middle of the road so that entities such as Bing won’t throw our search results into the garbage.  This, of course, will require time and diligence on our parts just as it will require patience on the part of our critics.  We see the writing upon the wall, Biden administration.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Levon Helm had formed his own group back while he was still part of the Band: Levon Helm and the RCO All-Stars.  His record label released an archival release- “Levon Helm and the RCO All-Stars: Live at the Palladium, NYC, New Year’s Eve 1977” on July 25, 2006.  Of the 13 songs on the disc, most of them were covers which is cool because we have a wide range of musical influences here.  The band was more of an orchestra what with Levon Helm (lead and backing vocals/drums), the great Paul Butterfield (harmonicas), Steve “The Colonel” Cropper and Fred Carter Jr. (guitars), Booker T. Jones (keyboards and percussion), the “Night Tripper” aka Mac Rebennack (keyboards and gris-gris), Donald “Duck” Dunn (bass), a horn sections, strings, a conductor, and guest appearances by fellow Band mates Robbie Robertson and Garth Hudson.  We love the album, particularly the Taj Mahal cover of “Ain’t That a Lotta Love,” which is why we encourage everyone to seek this album out wherever you can find it- you will be glad you did.  At Amazon, you can pick it up for less than $29.97 so what the heck?  Seek it out now…

[vii] Speaking of the decision to flip the game from Atlanta to Denver, we learned today that unsavory people like Stacey Abrams and the big dimwit, the pro-Chi-Com-loving LeBron James were integral in getting the game moved.  How outrageous.  How evil.  Scumbags.

  64. 2020 Thursday C: On the final day of the U.S. Supreme Court’s term, the high court handed down two decisions, both regarding President Donald J. Trump.  First, in Trump v. Vance (Manhattan D.A. Cyrus Vance Jr., a real Trump hater), the court ruled that the president does not have absolute immunity from all lawsuits, all nine justices agreeing on this point.  However, it was not an immediate win for D.A. Vance as he cannot see the tax documents he has been trying to see because it’s a political witch hunt sans any real need to see the tax returns.  In Trump v. Mazars, the court handed the president a tactical victory in that the House committee seeking to see his tax returns cannot go on a fishing expedition and must have a reason as to WHY they must see his tax returns.  We shall see with what the maggots in the House produce.  
  65. 2020 Thursday D: Meanwhile, U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan won’t let go of the now-destroyed case against Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn in that he is asking the federal appellate court to give the case another look.  WTF?  The Justice Dept. and federal prosecutors said to DROP the case because of the illegalities employed by the prosecution against the former national security advisor yet the crazed Judge Sullivan won’t let it go.  The guy is cruising for a future impeachment.

Famed guitarist Martin Barre returned with his next solo effort, “The Meeting,” on September 12, 1996.  Once again, the musician demonstrated just what a musical powerhouse he was and what he provided to Jethro Tull since the late 1960s, a unique, polished sound.  Joining the axe-man were Jonathan Noyce and Matt Pegg (bass), Doane Perry, Gerry Conway, and Marc Parnell (drums), Mark Tucker (guitars), Craig Milverton and Andrew Murray (keyboards), Miles Bould (percussion), Maggie Reeday (vocals), and several others.  We hope you will seek this album out and make it a part of your listening pleasure each day.  You will be glad you did.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next ‘Jethro Tull’ album to come out was “A,” which hit record store shelves on September 01, 1980.  Undisputed leader of Jethro Tull- Ian Anderson- meant this album to be a SOLO effort but record companies being what they are, said, ‘whoa, hold on there, we want this to be the next Jethro Tull album and thus it was.  The band featured  Ian Anderson (vocals, flutes, guitars, keyboards), Martin Barre (guitars), Dave Pegg (bass- Fairport Convention) and Mark Craney (drums and percussion).  Ian Anderson said he never meant to replace the lineup of musicians from the earlier years but since this was a SOLO album and since the record company said it ‘must be a Jethro Tull album,’ the classic lineup was out the door and gone- even though some of them such as Barriemore Barlow were going to leave anyway due to changes in musical direction.  Ah, well, it is what it is, please seek it out and give it a good listen- we think you will enjoy it.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Jethro Tull returned on April 10, 1978 with the second album of a coming trio of English folk rock albums- “Heavy Horses.”  Quintessentially British from start to finish, Jethro Tull returned to what they began as- blues and acoustic.  The band continued as six members- Ian Anderson (vocals, flutes, guitars, keyboards), Martin Barre (guitars), John Glascock (bass), John Evan (keyboards), Barriemore Barlow (drums), and Dee Palmer (keyboards and synthesizers).  Critics sang the album’s praises which is always peculiar as it seems when critics get their teeth dug in, they hate to pull them out.  We hope you will seek this album out and make it a part of your listening day- we suspect you will like it

  51. 2003 Saturday: Thanks to the invasion of their country by President George W. Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair, Baghdad has become of the most violent places on the entire Earth as riots and looting occur, even in the hospitals and the museums.  The Coalition figured that when Saddam fell, everything would be A-Okay and the grateful people would come together in a spirit of love and harmony, rather like a Woodstock 2003.  Only, things are not turning out this way.  Things are going to hell in a handbasket.  President Bush, Prime Minister Blair: YOU broke it, you own it.  Dimwits.

  53. 2005 Tuesday: Wolfgang Droege, perhaps Canada’s most prolific white supremacist- has a problem today.  Cops arrived at his home, found him murdered,  Even better for the cops, the perp was still inside the apartment with a gun in his hand.  Naughty, naughty.   They don’t like handguns in our neighbor to the north.
  54. 2006 Wednesday: Jurors in the Zacarias Moussaoui trial listened to a recording of shouts and cries in the cockpit as desperate passengers twice charged hijackers during the final half-hour of doomed United Flight 93 on September 11, 2001.  Meanwhile, as the Iranians continue working on their nuclear program, the Israelis threaten strikes on their nuke facilities as a ‘last resort’ if world leaders don’t put a stop to the insanity.  (Note- we say, “NUKE IRAN!  NOW!- Moses Scharbug III)
  55. 2007 Thursday: The U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee authorizes Senator Patrick “Leaky” Leahy to investigate the firings of federal attorneys that occurred under the Bush #43 administration.  The administration says it’s missing emails.  We shall see.

  61. 2013 Friday: Russia threatens retaliation after the U.S. imposes sanctions on 18 Magnitsky list Russians accused of human rights violations.  Meanwhile, Macy’s loses its dispute with JC Penney; JC Penney wins the right to sell unbranded housewares designed by Martha Stewart in its stores.
  62. 2014 Saturday: Researchers announce a new orally administered drug that may cure Hepatitis C; medical researchers declared 90-percent of patients in trials free of the virus after 12 weeks.  Elsewhere, gunmen- most likely Taliban thugs- kidnap 100 tribal leaders at a meeting in North Waziristan, Pakistan. 
  63. 2015 Sunday: Former first lady, New York senator, and secretary of state- Hillary Clinton- announces she will seek the presidential nomination of the Democratic Party for the second time.   Elsewhere, the War on Terror continues to rage as U.S. drone strikes whack at least four Taliban militants in North Waziristan.  Light ‘em up, boys, send them to meet with Mohammad!
  64. 2016 Tuesday: Famed country rocker Gib Guilbeau who played violin, guitar, and sang with the on-again, off-again band, the Flying Burrito Brothers[v] (1974-1984 / 1986-1997), passed away on this date at age 78.  Elsewhere, U.S. military officials announce they whacked loads of Al-Shabab militants via drone strikes both yesterday and today.  Allah Akbar!  Who doesn’t want to go meet with Mohammad?
  65. 2017 Wednesday:  President Donald J. Trump says the “U.S. dollar is getting too strong” which is why he seeks to keep interest rates low.  In other news, liberals are going berserk after White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said the “Nazis never used poison gas.”  This is in response to Syrian chemical weapons attacks on jihadist rebels.  What he meant is that the Nazis did NOT use poison gas on the battlefield.  Yes, they used it in the concentration camps but did not use it on the battlefield as both the Central Powers and the Allies did during World War I.  Sheesh.  Elsewhere, Japan says it will join in U.S.-South Korean military exercises as North Korea is causing lots of problems right now.
  66. 2018 Thursday: Along the border between Israel and Gaza, Palestinians continue running amok which leads Israeli Defense Forces to take out another couple of terrorists which drives liberals the world over to shriek and cry.  Meanwhile, Gazan doctors claim they have to amputate the legs of some young kids the Israelis shot (we don’t believe this crock of crap).
  67. 2019 Friday: Governor Mike DeWine, R-OH, signs a bill that eliminates the possibility of abortion once a fetal heartbeat is heard.  This leads the American Civil Liberties Union to announce they are preparing a challenge to the bill.  Meanwhile, in Quetta, Pakistan, members of the so-called ‘religion of peace’ (you can figure out what it is) carry out a suicide bombing on a marketplace that blows 21 people to meet Allah sooner than they planned and left another 50 wishing that maybe they could have gone to meet him, too.
  68. 2020: Easter Sunday sees 1,847,643 cases of confirmed COVID-19 around the world with 113,911 confirmed deaths and 422,489 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, there are 557,783 confirmed cases with 21,965 confirmed deaths and 31,976 confirmed recoveries at the time of this update.  Sadly, many locales around the U.S. have ordered churches to be closed to ‘prevent the spread of the Wuhan Virus Crisis’ the communists running the People’s Republic of China have given the world.  Question is, when Ramadan- a holiday of the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam- begins on April 23 and runs through May 23, will local and state governments order mosques to close, too?  Millions of Americans suspect this will not be the case as the government only seeks to persecute Christians and Jews but NEVER Muslims.
  69. 2021 Monday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 136,315,604 confirmed cases, +599,097, 2,940,833  confirmed deaths, +8,641, and 77,593,298 confirmed recoveries, +388,688.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,442,604 confirmed cases, UP 94,373 from yesterday’s reporting, 567,894 confirmed deaths, UP 752, and 119,004,328 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[vi]  In other COVID-19, a recent report says that Regeneron’s Chi-Vi cocktail can help prevent COVID-19 infections.
  70. 2021 Monday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 240,090 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.   Dr. Scott Gottlieb takes the ‘Biden administration’ to task for NOT surging vaccines and resources into coronavirus hotspots but to continue doling vaccines out based on population numbers. 
  71. 2021 Monday B: COVID-19 STATISTICS in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,701,555 confirmed cases, 60,434 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,125,846 confirmed cases, 34,056 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,045 confirmed cases, 471 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 378,052 confirmed cases, 5,373 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Kentucky, the home of “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell and his Chi-Com wife, Elaine Chao: they have 436,434 confirmed cases, 6,350 confirmed deaths, but sadly, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.[vii] 
  72. 2021 Monday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 836,072 confirmed cases, 6,299 confirmed deaths, and 826,205 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Greece, birthplace of the AICPENDBLOG.COM’s very own Chef Tiresias: 295,480 cases of the virus, 8,885 confirmed deaths and 93,764 confirmed recoveries.[viii]  In other China Virus news, India has now overtaken Brazil as having the most new cases of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Not good.   
  73. 2021 Monday D:   STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,745.40, DOWN 55.20 points (-0.16%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,850.00, DOWN 50.19 points (-0.36%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,127.99, DOWN 0.81 points (-0.02%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $59.63 per barrel, -0.07 (-0.12%).  The price of GOLD is $1,732.60 per troy oz., -0.10 (-0.01%) while the price of SILVER is $24.83 per troy ounce, -0.04 (-0.15%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,174.90 per troy oz, +0.10 (+0.01%) while the price of COPPER is $4.02 per pound, 0.00 (+0.02%).[ix]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,677.52 per troy oz, +38.28 (+1.45%).[x] The price of RHODIUM is $29,000.00 per troy oz., -100.00 (-0.34%).[xi]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.54 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.13.     In Egyptian Pound, one greenback equals 15.64 and in Emirati Dirham, a buck equals 3.67.[xii]  
  74. 2021 Monday 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 $3.936 per gallon, $2.840 in Florida, $3.718 in Hawaii, and $3.337 in Washington state.[xiii]    Let’s look at one other location- District of Columbia: $3.016.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,162,923,067,501 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xiv]  Cloward and Piven running amok.
  75. 2021 Monday F: JOE BIDEN NEWS- The state of Arizona is suing the ‘Biden administration’ over its flawed border policies.  They are suing the corrupt regime on environmental grounds as the hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens pouring across the southern frontier are leaving heaps of garbage, fecal matter, urine, discarded clothing, condoms, beverage containers, food wrappers, and all sorts of other garbage that is destroying the pristine environment along the Arizona-Mexico border.  Next, Joe Biden taps two openly hostile critics of President Donald J. Trump to lead key agencies.  First, he picks Tucson, Arizona’s chief of police, Chris Magnus to lead Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) and Ur Jaddou to head U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.  Both of these POS will push open borders policies.  Speaking of open borders, today is Day 19 that Border Czar “Kooky Kamala” Harris has failed to hold a press conference so she can share her ideas for fixing the southern border crisis.   
  76. 2021 Monday G: JOE BIDEN NEWS II- The first family’s dog, Major, is scheduled to get another round of training for all the people he has bitten since entering the White House.  What more proof does one need that the dog is a prop for a feeble old coot like Joe Biden?  Next, as the White House continues trying to convince the American people that another $2 trillion bill- this one, the INFRASTRUCTURE FIASCO BILL[xv]– is somehow good for them, Biden’s henchmen are going to target the home states of GOP leaders for a concerted push.  (Note- Joe, we don’t want this POS bill.  What you are going to do is that borrowing money from our enemies- that’s right- I flipping said it- the Chi-Coms- you are going to allow them to become de facto owners of U.S. businesses and landlords of the American people.  Chef Kilgore).   Meanwhile, we learn today that RINO wife of the late Senator John S. McCain- Cindy- could get an ambassadorship to the United Nations Food Program.  Say it ain’t so, Joe!  Big flipping deal.   Finally, Joe Biden is going to nominate former Pentagon employee Christine Wormuth to become the U.S. Army secretary.  If she gets the gig, she will become the first woman to hold this position.  YOU couldn’t find a tranny for secretary of the Army, Joe?
  77. 2021 Monday H: POLITICAL NEWS I- Fascist Governor Gretchen Whitmer, DS-MI, is peeved today at her Chief Operating Officer Tricia Foster basically told her boss to ‘go f**k herself’ by taking her family to Florida to vacation during spring break and then possessing the chutzpah to post photos of her vacation to online social media sites.  According to Herr Whitmer, NO one in Michigan government is to disobey her by going to the EVIL, COVID-19-infested Florida.  Oh, well.  We predict Governor Whitmer is going to face a Nicolae and Elena Ceausescu moment when the citizens of her state drag that Frankenstein-headed b***h (the only thing she’s missing are the bolts in her neck) and her family out and liquidate them.   This is the fate of ALL dictators.[xvi]  In other news, former DNI John Ratcliffe says that ‘Hunter Biden’s Ukrainian connections and his laptop are NOT Russian disinformation.’ 
  78. 2021 Monday I: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEA NEWS- the Iranians are running around jabbering and swearing over the recent BLACKOUT that befell their main nuclear facility in Natanz.  Israel, if YOU are going to f**k with these scumbags, how about setting a chain reaction off within the program so the entire country blows the hell up?  Now, that would be something we would all love to see.  Meanwhile, the ‘Biden administration’ is negotiating with Mexico, Honduras, and Guatemala (Trump already did this) to obtain their help in stopping the tidal wave of illegal aliens flooding from the three Central American countries through Mexico and into the U.S.  We believe we should militarize the southern border and throw back every wave of illegals invading our country.
  79. 2021 Monday J: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS- After a traffic stop goes awry in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, people are criticizing the moron judge in the murder trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin in the death of George Floyd because with all the problems that have occurred in the area as well as across the country because he did not sequester the jury in this case.   Next, New York State continues to forge ahead with its incredibly STUPID plan of giving checks as high as $15,600 apiece to illegal aliens who may have been affected by the ‘VID when U.S. citizens have lost homes, businesses, and many of them are living out on the streets.  Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Gov, aka the “Gropin’ Gov” must go now.  In other news, Victor Davis Hanson says that ‘all organizations and institutions have all gone WOKE.’ 
  80. 2021 Monday K: President Donald J. Trump says it is imperative that the GOP reclaims both the House and Senate in 2022.   Elsewhere, following the accidental shooting death of a young black man in Minnesota last night, three counties are placed under curfew and the National Guard is now patrolling the streets.  Police in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota (see previous), said that the female officer who shot 20-year-old Duante Wright thought she was drawing her taser as he sought to flee and instead shot him.   In other curious news, the U.S. is warning the People’s Republic of China NOT to make a move on Taiwan.  We shall see.  Russia in the Ukraine, Iran flexing its muscles, and North Korea going mum, no one knows what the heck is going to happen.  Finally, as the volcano continues erupting on St. Vincent, ferries are taking people away from the island BUT ONLY if they have vaccinations for the Chi-Vi.  We guess loads of people are going to die.  WTF?
  81. 2021 Monday L: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS II- Taiwan reports that the Chi-Coms flew 25 warplanes into their airspace earlier today.  Unlike the time when Chinese leader Hu Jintao was reaching out to Taiwan’s leadership, it’s clear that Xi Jinping is pulling a full-on Adolf Hitler, trying to intimidate neighboring countries around the borders of the People’s Republic of Chi-Com Land or actively trying to subvert them so as to force them into the fold.   Taiwan’s air defenses locked onto the PRC warplanes while tracker planes flew along with them.  War is coming, folks, war is coming and we have, uh, Joe Biden?  WTF!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The archivists of UFO at the band’s original label got a superb idea and released the crème de la crème of the first three albums compiled on one CD- all remastered of course- entitled, “The Decca Years 1970-1973” (February 29, 2012).  Back in the day, the band featured Phil Mogg (vocals), Mick Bolton (guitars), Pete Way (bass), and Andy Parker (drums and percussion) and you get the best of the first three albums- “UFO 1,” “UFO 2- Flying,” and “Live” all in one amazing place.  IF you have yet to introduce yourself to this phenomenal band, folks, this is a wonderful way in which you and your ears can get into the groove.  Granted, at Amazon the CD sells for around $50 but what the f**k?  When it comes to rock music, only buy the best and friends, UFO is among the top 20 greatest British rock bands.

X. 1943: During World War II, the Allies launched their invasion of Sicily, with nighttime landings of American and England troops; a full-scale incursion by seas began in the small hours of July 10. More than a month later, the Allies secured the island from the Axis troops. Meanwhile on the fifth day of the greatest tank-and-airplane battle at the Soviet city of Kursk, the Germans make some gains and capture another town.

Vance as he cannot see the tax documents he has been trying to see because it’s a political witch hunt sans any real need to see the tax returns.  In Trump v. Mazars, the court handed the president a tactical victory in that the House committee seeking to see his tax returns cannot go on a fishing expedition and must have a reason as to WHY they must see his tax returns.  We shall see with what the maggots in the House produce.
  65. 2020 Thursday D: Meanwhile, U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan won’t let go of the now-destroyed case against Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn in that he is asking the federal appellate court to give the case another look. WTF?  The Justice Dept. and federal prosecutors said to DROP the case because of the illegalities employed by the prosecution against the former national security advisor yet the crazed Judge Sullivan won’t let it go.  The guy is cruising for a future impeachment.   Meanwhile, Democratic Party assumed presidential nominee Joe Biden leaves the basement and gives a speech, promoting his Build Back Better campaign slogan.

#PF001.4b BBC 1967-1968 #81 06-17-2020 (400)

 

As usual, we miss some albums and then have to backtrack when presenting the music of a band such as Pink Floyd.  The album we have for you today is “Live at the BBC May 1967-December 1968,” a renowned collection of tunes if ever one existed.  You get 24 amazing cuts in one remarkable place.  Not only do you get recordings by the original group, you also get some as the quintet they became for a brief period.   The price is nice, the sound is fairly good, and if you are completists like the chef-authors at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day are, then you will want to own it as it’s only $25.  So what the heck?  Seek it out now and add it to your collection in the condition, format, and price that works best for you- you will be glad you did.

In the three states in which, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 153,560 confirmed cases, 5,121 confirmed deaths, but like always, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.

Finally, in Washington, here are the stats: 26,158 confirmed cases, 1,221 confirmed deaths, but like California, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Some states are threatening to shut down the openings that have already begun while others are plowing forward, damn the torpedoes. Elsewhere, Kim Jong Un blew up a building north of the DMZ to show his anger over South Korea not fulfilling its ‘promises’ to the Stalinist state. Oh, well.
  55. 2020 Tuesday: President Donald J. Trump signs an executive order to begin the reformation of the nation’s police agencies. Democrats screech ‘IT’S NOT ENOUGH’ and that ‘TRUMP IS A RACIST.’ Ah, well, we know the Dems will never accept anything President Trump does.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

 

 

#PF001.3f Unattended Luggage #58 05-30-2020 (400)

 

Drummer and percussionist for Pink Floyd- Nick Mason- released his next album, three albums in one- “Unattended Luggage,” which came out on August 31, 2018. The album contains “Fictitious Sports,” an album he released in 1981 as well as two collaborations with the guitarist from 10cc. Solo albums by drummers being what they are, the main artist many times is dependent on those supporting him so it is what it is. We hope you will seek this one out and consider adding it to your collection as a ‘rarity.’ We think you will enjoy it as much as we do because you get three albums by one of rock’s greatest drummers and only consistent member of Pink Floyd throughout its storied career and at a great price. You’ll dig it.
