171. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, JUNE 20, 2022

2008 Friday: Like poor Tibet, Nepal also is coming under the sway of the Chi-Coms which leads to massive protests in front of the Chi-Com embassy. At least 700 Tibetans were there among the crowd, all of whom were arrested with three being slapped with charges of ‘anti-Chi-Com activities.’ Folks, who runs Nepal? The government of that nation or Beijing? The world knows the answer.

  25. 1923 Wednesday: France announced it would seize the Rhineland to help Germany pay its debts from World War I.  This would be yet another massive slap in the face to the German people that would open their ears to the song of Adolf Hitler.  Stupid, stupid policy.

  28. 1941 Friday: The U.S. military replaced the Army Air Corps with the U.S. Army Air Forces.  In 1947, the military abolished the Air Corps by creating the United States Air Forces.  Elsewhere, the Germans and their Axis allies in Eastern Europe are preparing to launch the largest land invasion in the history of the world in two days.  Air crews are receiving their briefings, artillery targets are being registered, and the 1.5 million troops ready to cross the frontier into the Soviet Union are enjoying their final days of rest.  War is coming and the Soviets are dozing on the other side of the border.
  29. 1942 Saturday: The Afrika Korps conquers Tobruk in North Africa.  Meanwhile, Nazi Adolf Eichmann announces the deportation of Dutch Jews.  On the Eastern Front, heavy fighting continues around the Crimean fortress city of Sebastopol as German and Rumanian troops continue fighting to batter their way into the city.  Farther east, the road to Stalingrad is underway as the German spring and summer offensive is moving south with growing momentum.

  32. 1944 Tuesday: The Nazis begin the mass extermination of all Jews at Auschwitz Death Camp.  Meanwhile, the Allies are advancing on all fronts in Europe.  On the Leningrad Front, the Soviets are advancing while the Allies are advancing in France and Italy.  Fighting is fierce.  Elsewhere during World War II, Japanese naval forces retreated in the Battle of the Philippine Sea after suffering heavy losses to the American fleet.  On Saipan, American forces continue battering the Japanese defenders who cling tenaciously to every scrap of geography.  It is victory or it’s death for them.

  34. 1946 Thursday: The Big Four- the United States, Great Britain, France, and the Soviet Union agree to begin the gradual withdrawal of Allied occupation forces from Italy.  The Soviets also agree to withdraw their troops from Bulgaria which although on the side of the Axis during World War II did not participate in Operation Barbarossa and also have traditionally been a Russian ally.  Still, they will be a part of the communist bloc.  It is what it is…

  58. 2009 Saturday: As the Arab Spring continues growing across the Muslim world, riot police in Tehran are finding their hands full with mobs of protesters demanding changes in their dictatorial regime.  This is ONE country that new President Barack Hussein Obama won’t provide help.  Elsewhere, jihadists near Kirkuk, Iraq, get lucky with a suicide bombing that propels 67 people up to commune with Allah far sooner than any of them anticipated while leaving at least another 200 in varying stages of suffering.  That’s the ‘religion of peace’ for you…
  59. 2010 Sunday: The Chicago Journal reports it’s been a busy weekend in President Barack Hussein Obama’s adopted hometown of the Windy City what with 40 people shot and seven of them dead.  Halfway across the world, similar issues are occurring in central Baghdad what with two car bombings ejecting at least 26 passersby up to meet with Allah sooner than any of them anticipated while leaving another 53 in varying stages of distress.
  60. 2011 Monday: The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers grants private companies the right to create new website domains and suffixes.  Elsewhere, the Anglican Church in England considers permitting openly gay clergy members to become bishops.  Well.  Elsewhere, sectarian clashes break out in East Belfast, Northern Ireland, leading to numerous people being trucked off to the hospital and others to the hoosegow.

  62. 2013 Thursday: Instagram offers its users the ability to upload videos to its service.  Elsewhere, the Committee on the Rights of the Child accuses E-V-I-L Israeli soldiers of torturing Palestinian children and using the poor little bastards as human shields.  (Note- what a crock of crap!).  Elsewhere, in the NBA Finals, the Miami Heat beat the San Antonio Spurs 4 games to 3 by a final score of 95-88 successfully defending their title from the previous year.  Knuckle-dragging cretin LeBron James is declared the MVP for the second year in a row.
  63. 2014 Friday: Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko initiates a 7-day cease-fire, allowing troops to defend themselves but not to attack; during the cease-fire, separatists can turn in weapons and receive amnesty; so far, rebels have rejected the offer.  Elsewhere, the Obama administration rushes 300 U.S. troops to Iraq to help that government’s forces battle the ISIS thugs in the oil-refining city of Baiji.   Light these scum-sucking bastards UP.
  64. 2015 Saturday: After white racist Dylann Storm Roof murders nine African Americans at the church in South Carolina earlier in the week, mass protests break out demanding the removal of the Confederate battle flag from the grounds of the Capitol building.   Meanwhile, in southern Pakistan, a heat wave peaks killing at least 2,000 people from heat stroke and dehydration.   Elsewhere, in Japan, one-thousand female robots named “Pepper” sell out in under one minute at $1,600 per unit; so says creator SoftBank Robotics Corp.
  65. 2016 Monday: The U.S. Supreme Court- noting that it has already reviewed other such bans on ‘assault weapons’ (ALL weapons are ‘assault weapons’ whether they be a gun or a screwdriver or even fists)- refuses to hear other states’ bans such as Connecticut and New York.  What we need is a universal permit to carry arms, both out in the open and concealed.  Cleansing the nation of ‘gun-free zones’ would also enhance the safety of every American.  Meanwhile, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees reports that the number is higher than ever what with endless wars, climate disasters, and economic impoverishment: 65.3 million people (which the Democrats want to bring to the U.S.)
  66. 2017 Tuesday: Following his arrest for driving under the influence, Tiger Woods checks into a rehab clinic to deal with his pain medication dependency and his ongoing sleep disorders.   Elsewhere, as outrage continues to grow over the death of 22-year-old American tourist Otto Warmbier at the hands of North Korean jailers, Young Pioneers Tours, the firm taking foreigners into the hellhole known as the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea says it ‘won’t be taking any other Americans into that godforsaken country as the risk is simply too high.’  (Note- if you remember, young Mr. Warmbier visited the nation, removed a poster from a hotel room wall for a souvenir and then underwent arrest, a bulls**t trial, imprisonment, and just before he died, Kim Jong Un sent his catatonic body home to his parents).
  67. 2018 Wednesday: Bowing to pressure from his political enemies and armies of wailing illegal aliens, President Donald J. Trump signs an executive order ending separation of families at the border, a policy that began under the previous administration but which no one conveniently remembers.   Meanwhile (and this is a good one!), the Chi-Coms express their regrets that the United States is withdrawing from the bulls**t U.N. Human Rights Council.  With dictators, thugs, criminals, and communists making up its membership, the organization is little more than a joke.
  68. 2019 Thursday: Leader of communist China, Xi Jinping, travels to North Korea to visit with Kim Jong Un in Pyongyang, the first Chinese leader to travel to the S-hole country in 14 years.  In other news, the Iranians commit an overt act of war when their military shoots down a U.S. surveillance drone which they claim trespassed into their airspace.  Almost immediately, the military-industrial-political complex in the United States as well as Democrats and pro-war RINOs begin banging the drum for President Donald J. Trump to launch yet another unnecessary Middle Eastern war.  Wow.
  69. 2020 Saturday: President Donald J. Trump kicked off his official 2020 re-election bid with a massive rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  What a barn burner, he seems unstoppable.  Moving on, here are today’s stats for the Xi Jinping special Wuhan bat flu virus, first the globe: 8,546,919 confirmed cases, 456,726 confirmed deaths, and 4,195,274 confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 2,295,615 confirmed cases, 121,441 confirmed deaths, and 714,961 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day possesses chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 169,309 confirmed cases, 5,424 confirmed deaths, but as has become the norm, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 762 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 640 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for the CHOP state, Washington: 28,163 confirmed cases, 1,265 confirmed deaths, but sadly, like California, moron Gov. Jay Inslee will NOT REPORT the number of confirmed recoveries.
  70. 2020 Saturday A: Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sissi warns Ankara, Turkey, that IF Turkish backed Libyan thugs attack Sirte, the Egyptian army would immediately strike out and destroy the Libyan rebels causing problems in their next-door neighbor.  The Turkish president had no clue as to what to say when faced with a genuinely formidable threat and so remained silent.  Good for you, President al-Sissi!
  71. 2020 Saturday B: In House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s hometown of California, a violent mob of leftist ‘protesters’ tore down a statue of General (and President) Ulysses S. Grant.  Unbeknownst to these ignorant Black Lives Matter and Antifa trash rioters, Grant was the guiding military light of the Civil War on the northern side.  He freed slaves and was a strong proponent of recruiting newly freed blacks to serve in the Union army.  It is clear that these so-called ‘protesters’ are not about fighting for civil rights but are Marxists-Leninists in need of immediate extermination.  Time for good Americans to stand up and begin fighting back against this communist scum.  This is what we will get if “Pro-China Joe” Biden wins the White House in November.  VOTE TRUMP!
  72. 2021 Sunday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 178,960,779 confirmed cases, +14,417, 3,875,601 confirmed deaths, +8,968 and 163,779,820 confirmed recoveries, +386,650.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 34,401,712 confirmed cases, UP 8,542 from yesterday’s reporting, 617,083 confirmed deaths, UP 166, [xiii] and 28,694,843 confirmed recoveries, UP 18,439.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 299,177 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 160,472 deaths

  77. 2021 Sunday 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 $4.229 per gallon, $2.947 in Florida, $3.987 in Hawaii, and $3.633 in Washington state.[xxi]    Let’s look at one other location- North Carolina: $2.880.  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- Argentina: $3.833 per U.S. Gallon.[xxii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,429,862,051,238 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxiii]  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 Canada, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is France with $111 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position).[xxiv]
  78. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day #89 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of America’s number one problem and to have yet shown up for a single day on the job.  Ah, well, Benny Johnson of Newsmax says that Customs and Border Patrol has arrested numerous terrorists on the terrorist watchlist as well as all sorts of criminals- especially sexual criminals- and yet more continue coming.  In other news we believe is related to the border, a Houston deputy’s home was invaded in a pre-dawn assault and his wife and 4-year-old stepdaughter shot and seriously wounded by unknown perps.  A week or so ago, news appeared that said the cartels were going to target the homes and families of Lone Star State law enforcement officers.   Thank you, Joe “F**king” Biden.
  79. 2021 Sunday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Speaking of the mess, Rep. August Pfluger, R-TX 11th congressional district, says that ‘illegal aliens are overrunning the 29 inland counties he represents.’  (Note- we urge Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, to put former Sheriff Joe Arpaio in charge of all holding pens for the illegal aliens).  Elsewhere, Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, is seeking to join Florida and Idaho in sending law enforcement to help aid Arizona and Texas in repelling the illegal alien invasion.  Good.  Every RED STATE governor must send troops to defend the country.  This is akin to the emergency that surrounded the Alamo, only this time, the GOOD GUYS are NOT going to lose to the barbarians.
  80. 2021 Sunday H: Foreign News / Overseas News– Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett says the ‘world powers must wake up to the dangers of the Iran nuclear deal.’

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next Beach Boys album came out on June 12, 1983: “Rarities.”  Sooner or later, every band still performing who began in the early 1960s compiled a collection of so-called ‘rarities,’ thus we have this fabulous compendium of surf, sun, and fun music.  So, what do we have here?  Well, we begin with the Lennon-McCartney classic, “With a Little Help from My Friends,” followed by the Box Tops classic, “The Letter.”  After that, we have an alternate take of Stevie Wonder’s “I Was Made to Love Her,” followed by Brian Wilson’s “You’re Welcome.”  After that, we have “The Lord’s Prayer,” followed by “Bluebirds over the Mountain,” an alternate take, followed by a Dennis Wilson-penned tune, “Celebrate the News.”  We have an alternate version of “Good Vibrations” and gobs of other glorious tunes all lovingly compiled from the archives of this legendary group such as “Land Ahoy,” a live version of “All I Want to Do,” and several other unique and enjoyable cuts.  Seek this one out and add it to your daily playlist of the absolute best in summertime music.  You will be glad you did.

159. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, JUNE 08, 2022

1954 Tuesday: In Hanoi, capital of French Indochina, a new general takes over after his predecessor was sacked on the 4th: General Paul Ely. Peace talks between the French, the communists, and the Russians are ongoing in Europe to bring some sort of end to the war there but the French are moving faster than the talks are. They are preparing to abandon much of the northern part of Vietnam while trying to hold on to portions of the south. The mood at home back in France is not very good- for the people of France, this smells a lot like the summer of 1940.

  63. 2021 Tuesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,599.82, DOWN 30.42 points (-0.088%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,924.91, UP 43.19 points (+0.31%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,227.26, UP 0.74 points (+0.018%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $70.32 per barrel, +0.27 (+0.36%).  The price of GOLD is $1,894.60 per troy oz., +0.00 (+0.00%) while the price of SILVER is $27.72 per troy ounce, -0.01 (-0.04%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,163.10 per troy oz, +0.60 (+0.05%) while the price of COPPER is $4.54 per pound, -0.02 (-0.45%).[xiv]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,814.28 per troy oz, +7.29 (+0.26%).[xv] The price of RHODIUM is $22,250.00 per troy oz., -250.00 (-1.11%). The price of NEODYMIUM is $602,500.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (-0.00%). [xvi]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000031.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.40 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.69.     In Haitian Gourde, one greenback equals 90.50 and in Honduran Lempira, a buck equals 23.97 and in Hong Kong Dollar, one dollar equals 7.76 of theirs.[xvii]        
  64. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.223 per gallon, $2.925 in Florida, $3.954 in Hawaii, and $3.605 in Washington state.[xviii]    Let’s look at one other location- Indiana: $3.070.  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- Guyana: $3.506 per U.S. Gallon.[xix]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,383,386,054,306 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xx]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been lynched.  NOTE- communist China owns approximately $1.1 trillion.  After Japan, the Chi-Coms, Brazil, the United Kingdom, and Ireland , the next highest holder of U.S. debt is Luxembourg: that nation holds about $267.8 billion of U.S. debt- how about that?[xxi]
  65. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Wherever the laughing hyena- ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris- goes, she continues embarrassing herself and the administration.  When asked as to WHY she has yet to visit the southern border, she did what she does best and that is to burst out laughing like the jackal that she is.  Today, coming home from her humiliating trip to Guatemala to discuss the ongoing BORDER CALAMITY, she stopped in Mexico and was embarrassed there by anti-“Cho-Mo Joe” Biden-“Kooky Kamala” Harris protesters who showed up to tell her to go home and to reinforce the fact that President Donald J. Trump won.  As if this is not lethal to this fraudulent administration, news accounts say that ‘she fails to impress on her first taxpayer-funded trip abroad.’  Wow.  This is what happens when one helps steal an election and then tries to act as though they are legit.  People know the truth.  “Kooky Kamala” should tuck her cur tail between her legs and come home, disappear, and stay silent until the courts throw her and feeble Joe out of the White House.[xxii]  Speaking of this calamity along the border, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, said that ‘Joe Biden and his border czar are covering up the absolute disaster along the border by staying as far away from it as possible.’  Amen.
  66. 2021 Tuesday G: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, And ‘Refugees’ News– One America News once again updates the stats on what illegal immigration is costing the United States.  First, Cost this Day alone is $526,446,112.  Second, Total Cost this Year: $173,677,166,592.  Third: Number of Illegals who crossed the border this year: 1,780,052.  Fourth and final, Total Number of Illegal Aliens in the U.S. as you read this: 35,780,052 to which we say the ‘true number is closer to 60-80 million illegals.  Initiate new Operation Wetback II, round them up, load them onto trains, planes, buses, trucks, freighters, and even rickshaws and send them back to Mexico.  Let the Mexicans sort them out.  (Note- we learned yesterday on Newsmax that once the illegals make it across the southern border and arrive at safe houses, Americans come and pick them up and distribute them across three principal states- Texas, Tennessee, and Virginia.  And people claim the Replacement Theory is ‘conspiracy theory.’  Sure.  One thing we do know: any American citizen aiding the human trafficking must spend 20-30 years in a federal prison).
  67. 2021 Thursday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information–  Washington state has a new program running through July 12: “Joints for Jabs.”  If a person 21 or older gets the Chi-Vi vaccine, they can visit a state licensed marijuana dispensary and get themselves a free joint.  Question is, will it be bottom shelf stuff the likes of which they sell to low-income minorities or will it be top-of-the-line stuff imported from the Hindu Kush?  Thank you, Governor Jay Inslee, DS-WA, you big dumbass.  Still, people are shying away from getting the vaccinations now.   Next, Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, signed a bill prohibiting COVID-19 Vaccine Passports and said that Texas is OPEN 100-percent.  Elsewhere, a New York pharmacist got fired for refusing to offer the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccinations.  Sad.   Finally, a new report says that ‘past COVID-19 infection is best defense against getting the disease again.’  In essence, this finding means that Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, was 100-percent correct when he said this while questioning the ‘Mighty Mite’ ‘Phony Tony’ Fauci.
  68. 2021 Thursday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Top airlines around the world are becoming increasingly uneasy and are asking global health authorities to begin easing the restrictions as otherwise, they will go broke sans customers.   Elsewhere, economic genius Peter Navarro says, ‘Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci[xxiii] orchestrated a coverup of the role the Chi-Coms played in loosing the Wuhan Flu on the world.’  Meanwhile, the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory had a report ready to go back in May 2020 in which, it laid out the damning evidence that the Chi-Vi was lab-created and either loosed on the world through ineptitude or on purpose on an unsuspecting world.  Elsewhere, Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci is in cahoots with Little Mark Zuckerberg when it comes to covering up the Chi-Coms’ vast COVID-19 crimes.[xxiv]  Finally, UC Berkeley physics Professor Richard Muller told Greg Kelly on Newsmax that research shows beyond a shadow of a doubt that the Wuhan Virus Crisis was indeed developed within the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  
  69. 2021 Thursday J: Foreign News / Overseas News– Russia announced today in advance of the upcoming summit in Switzerland on June 16 between Vladimir Putin and enfeebled Joe Biden their official withdrawal from the Open Skies Treaty.  Ba-boom!  Another bitch-slap to the face of the drooler-in-chief.  Speaking of Russia, they are commissioning a new class of submarines, the Yasen-M-class nuclear-powered, guided missile submarine.  Next, communist-lover Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is being pressured by both Canadian businesses and the United States to reopen the border between the U.S. and Canada.  In other hilarious news, French President Emanuel Macron found himself slapped across the face as he was out going on a walkabout and when he approached a rope line, a gentleman on the other side slapped him across his petulant puss.  Yikes.   Not sure what may have happened to the slapper.  In other foreign and overseas news, we learn today that the Chi-Coms are doing everything imaginable and then some to repress Uighur birth rates.  (Note- and you wonder why we typically say that the Chi-Coms and Nazi Germany have so much in common).[xxv] (Speaking of the Chi-Coms, the U.S. Senate is set to pass a sweeping tech bill with which to combat the communist threat emanating from Beijing).
  70. 2021 Tuesday K: Joe Biden Regime News I– ‘Joe Biden’ is set to launch a ‘taskforce’ on America’s supply chain problems.  (Note- do what President Donald J. Trump advocated- bring EVERYTHING home from communist China.  Period).  Next, the Dems are having problems pushing the ‘Joe Biden agenda’ without the support of some of their own senators in the U.S. Senate.  Add to that the fact of liberal infighting, confusion, and plain stupidity and it’s no wonder his ‘agenda’ is going in a circular motion down the crapper and off to the water purification farm.  In fact, Senate ‘Majority Leader’ “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says infrastructure talks between the White House and the GOP have ‘hit a brick wall.’  His counterpart, Senate ‘Minority Leader’ ‘Cocaine Mitch’ McConnell, R-KY, says that ‘era of bipartisanship is over.’  Amen.
  71. 2021 Tuesday L: Big Tech News– Poll- 86-percent of Americans believe the United States is vulnerable to damaging cyberattacks.  The federal government, however, claims to have recovered around 63 Bitcoin from the account the hackers of the Colonial oil pipeline used to amass their ransom.  Good.  Now, we need to find and execute them.  Even as the feds have a success, a new cyberattack hits a provider of tech services to Capitol Hill demanding ransom.  This seems to be a daily, ongoing thing.  Someone nudge ‘drooling Joe’ and see if he’s awake.  Someone must do something.
  72. 2021 Tuesday M: Political News I– the U.S. Senate passes a bill with which to provide payments to victims of the ‘Havana Syndrome,’ the microwave attacks on U.S. diplomats and embassy personnel in various stations around the world.   About time.  Next, because U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland has a penis and not a vagina between his legs, the LEFT is demanding he be replaced with former U.S. Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates.  Look, we think Garland’s a loser; however, replacing one loser with another loser makes no sense at all NO matter the genitalia.  In other news, Buckhead, a neighborhood in Atlanta, Georgia, is seeking to secede from the crime-infested, illegal alien-overrun city and become their own city.  We hope they ‘secede.’  (LOL).  Meanwhile, a new U.S. Senate report on January 6, 2021, puts the onus on what happened on that day- one the Dems compare to the War of 1812, Pearl Harbor, and September 11, 2001- onto the Capitol Hill cops who did nothing even with intel to stop the FALSE FLAG OPERATION[xxvi] that overran the Capitol Building.
  73. 2021 Tuesday N: Political News II– Back from the graveyard, hardcore Democrat, cash bundler for the Clintons, and former Governor Terry McAuliffe, bested his opponents in the Virginia Democratic Party’s gubernatorial primary race.   Democrats believe the Virginia state races in November 2021 will demonstrate how well the Democrats are doing which is why in our view, Virginia is among the BIG THREE states where traffickers are bringing vast numbers of illegal aliens.   They want to flood the polls with a tidal wave of new voters to put a man labeled the “punk” by famed radio icon, Rush Limbaugh.  
  74. 2021 Tuesday O: Moron News– Sandy “The Fly” Cortez- the one some public relations firm tied to former Nazi and ‘born again communist’ George Soros dubbed ‘AOC’- was crying on some radio or TV show about having to get counseling for her post-traumatic stress disorder she claims to have suffered at the aforementioned Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021.  Wah, wah, wah, girl, don’t you ever shut up?  Speaking of another moron, octogenarian entertainer Cher can’t distinguish between blonde female senators.  She was bitching and moaning about Senator Kyrsten Sinema, D-AZ, not standing with her party and confused her with a vacuous blonde from New York Kirsten Gillibrand.  Cher said the voters of New York must vote that skank out of office.  She didn’t mean you, Senator Gillibrand.  Perhaps someone can enlighten Cher?[xxvii]   Finally, actress Ellie Kemper of ‘The Office’ fame is yet another to bite the dust as the WOKE mob continues devouring its own.  Apparently, Ms. Kemper went to a Cotillion dance and celebration back in flipping 1999 and because she wore a white dress and white gloves to her above her elbow as females participating in these events typically do, she became a MAJOR TARGET and was forced to apologize profusely and to then leave whatever show of which she was a cast member.  Wow.
  75. 2021 Tuesday P: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega Millions Draw #1666 with a pot of $56 million.  Here are the numbers: 09, 22, 39, 41, 54, and Mega 19.  Out of 53,082 winning numbers in California, the highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $41,111.     
  76. 2022 Wednesday: Stick around and discover whatever is going on today…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

One thing about the Beach Boys is that while their vocal harmonies soared, harmony among the band members was always affray which was sad.  Alan Jardine and Mike Love sought control, but Brian Wilson had the ‘touch.’  Carl contributed great tunes whereas Dennis was slowly becoming a problem for the band.  Still, the band had not released a new studio album since “Holland” several years back.  Demand was high and thus it was time to release a brand-new record and to make it appear as though Brian was back at the helm.  Thus, we get “15 Big Ones,” released on July 05, 1976.  The album is a mix of classic oldies and some Beach Boys compositions that might have appeared on B-Sides and the like. The album features the same lineup as the preceding one: Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), Bruce Johnston (backing vocals), and others including members of the touring ensemble.  Say what you will about the album but at the time, it was a godsend since fans sought any music from the group and it would mark the start of the ‘third period of productivity.’  We hope you will seek this one out as it has its moments and some tunes such as Alan Jardine’s “Susie Cincinnati” are a joy to behold.  Seek it out and make it a part of your daily listening rotation.  Enjoy.

[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] When we promoted the music of the Steve Miller Band, we screwed up by not promoting the music of Boz Scaggs at the same time.  We look forward to doing it soon.

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

[iv] We presented the music of this British prog-rock band, the amazing King Crimson, beginning on Monday, 20-October-2014 through Sunday, 21-December-2014.  We hope you will check them out and add them to your collection.

[v] 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.

[vi] We celebrated the music of the amazing Little Feat beginning on Tuesday, 11-June-2013 through Monday, 15-July-2013.  One of the great unsung bands of all time, we hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your music collection.

[vii] When we present the music of the Allman Brothers Band, we will present the music of Gov’t Mule.  Stay tuned for further developments.

[viii] James Comey is a worthless POS and one of the main coup plotters against President Donald J. Trump.  We hope he will soon be breaking rocks at Leavenworth Federal Penitentiary for his role in the attempted coup.

[ix] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates.  Seeing as how Fleetwood Mac was among the earliest bands we ever promoted, we will have to pick them back up and present not only the music of the band that has come out since then but also the individual member’s solo projects.

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

[xxi] So says Investopedia: How Much U.S. Debt Does China Own? (investopedia.com)

[xxii] Rep. Brad Wenstrup, R-OH 2nd congressional district, says it’s ‘absolutely unbelievable that neither Joe Biden nor his flunky have visited the southern border. 

[xxiii] A new Rasmussen poll says that ONLY 40-percent of Americans believe the ‘Mighty Mite’ told the truth at any point.

[xxiv] Speaking of the political hack doctor, the “Fire Fauci Act” continues to gain momentum.  It is funny that yesterday during a trip the midget doctor took with Dr. Jill Biden, the ersatz ‘first lady,’ people along the way hooted and yelled at them, demanding he resign office NOW.

[xxv] Like the Nazis, the Chi-Coms allow ‘private ownership of businesses and wealth’ as long as the business owners and wealthy play ball with the regime.  Like the Nazis, the Chi-Coms have a strong territorial aggression agenda by which they will take over other nations through threat or by cash.  Like the Nazis, they seek to exterminate the Untermensch (in their eyes) of racial, ethnic, and religious minorities, and maintain a vast system of concentration and slave labor camps and do something the Nazis never even thought of doing: organ harvesting for sale to the highest bidder.  Yes, the People’s Republic of China is Nazi Germany but with an Asian face.

[xxvi] The False Flag Operation was one organized by Antifa and carried out with their thugs and Black Lives Matter communists insinuated into the ranks of Trump supporters to make it appear as though it was Trump supporters run amok.  The Dems are milking these teats for all their worth.  Their time will come.

[xxvii] Because this woman is a ditz, we will NEVER promote her music; we will, however, one day do the music of Sonny and Cher.

  59. 2020 Saturday A: Protests continue around the nation over the death of George Floyd this past Monday in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  The night before, extremely violent protests left many cities little more than moonscapes with stores burnt down, the husks of cars littering the streets.  As day progressed, more and more protesters and rioters returned to the streets and began going at it again.  There can be NO question that communist China is colluding with the Democratic Party via funding and resources because the level of coordination for the conflagrations around the country is beyond most liberal losers to pull off on their own.  We believe that President Trump must rebuff Beijing every day and tell them, “YOU aren’t getting away with this!”  Free Hong Kong!  Free Taiwan!  Free Macau!  Free Tibet!  Now, for the Wuhan Bat Flu statistics.  Here we go:
  60. 2020 Saturday B: The Chinese Virus continues flowing around the world but with the protests raging in the streets of America, no one seems much concerned.  Many aren’t wearing masks.  Here are the global stats for today: 6,054,187 confirmed cases, 368,711 confirmed deaths, but 2,562,191 confirmed recoveries which far outpaces the number of deaths.  Excellent.  Here are the stats for the United States: 1,805,745 confirmed cases, 105,159 confirmed deaths, but 390,404 confirmed recoveries which would be much higher if Blue State governors were honest and would share those numbers.  In the three states where the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 108,878 confirmed cases, 4,060 confirmed deaths, but NO MENTION yet again of confirmed recoveries.  Governor Gavin Newsom, get with it and share those numbers, you worthless POS.  In Hawaii, here are the stats: 647 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, but 604 confirmed recoveries which is extremely good.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 21,288 confirmed cases, 1,118 confirmed deaths, but like California, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Gov. Jay Inslee plays the same brand of deceptive liberal politics and won’t share honest statistics.  Shame on him!  Shame on Gov. Newsom!  Recall BOTH of them.
  61. 2021 Sunday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 171,006,181 confirmed cases, +388,054, 3,556,019  confirmed deaths, +7,837 and 153,278,160 confirmed recoveries, +52,339.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 34,042,922 confirmed cases, UP 7,604 from yesterday’s reporting, 609,544 confirmed deaths, UP 124,[vi] and 27,840,817 confirmed recoveries, UP 21,856.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[vii]  
  62. 2021 Sunday A: NOTE: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 291,598 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 168,011 deaths  
  63. 2021 Sunday 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: 3,789,318 confirmed cases, 63,245 confirmed deaths, and 2,054,021 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,320,818 confirmed cases, 36,774 confirmed deaths, and 1,943,113 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 36,246 confirmed cases, 500 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 437,952 confirmed cases, 5,829 confirmed deaths, and 212,777 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Indiana: they have 743,696 confirmed cases, 13,620 confirmed deaths, and 710,986 confirmed recoveries.[viii]   
  64. 2021 Sunday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,458 confirmed cases, 6,411 confirmed deaths, and 832,693 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- El Salvador, home of MS-13: 73,246 cases of the virus, 2,245 confirmed deaths and 68,408 confirmed recoveries.[ix]     
  65. 2021 Sunday D: Friday’s Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,529.45, UP 64.81 points (+0.19%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,748.74, UP 12.46 points (+0.091%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,204.11, UP 3.23 points (+0.077%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $66.63 per barrel, +0.31 (+0.47%).  The price of GOLD is $1,903.70 per troy oz., +1.20 (+0.06%) while the price of SILVER is $28.07 per troy ounce, +0.05 (+0.18%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,184.40 per troy oz, +2.00 (+0.17%) while the price of COPPER is $4.67 per pound, -0.01 (-0.17%).[x]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,822.33 per troy oz, +17.19 (+0.61%).[xi] The price of RHODIUM is $24,750.00 per troy oz., +2000.00 (+8.79%).[xii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000028.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.37 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.93.     In Central African CFA Franc, one greenback equals 532.21 and in Chilean Peso, a buck equals 724.05 and in Colombian Peso, one dollar equals 3,705.75 of theirs.[xiii]      
  66. 2021 Sunday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.197 per gallon, $2.866 in Florida, $3.926 in Hawaii, and $3.576 in Washington state.[xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- U.S. Arizona: $3.126.  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- Sierra Leone: $3.142 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,348,229,478,276 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  67. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– By our count, this is Day #69 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka the “Laughing Hyena,” to be in charge of the southern border and not to have visited it.  Her ‘vice presidential’ salary is being well-spent as you can see.
  68. 2021 Sunday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– It looks like the Israelis are going to do to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu what the British people did to Prime Minister Winston Churchill at the end of World War II after he saved the UK like Netanyahu has Israel- countless time- vote him out and move on.  Netanyahu has saved Israel countless times and now that he has and the Palestinians have lit them up with more than 4,000 rockets, it appears the liberals in Israel are going to boot him and suck up to Gaza Strip and to Iran in a roundabout way,  Wow. At least Bill Maher is defending Israel unlike the rest of American liberals.  In other foreign and overseas news, news reports say that Mexican drug cartels are hunting Mexican law enforcement officers in their homes.  It sounds like Mexico- if it wants to remain a sovereign nation instead of an Afghanistan-like s**thole, they had better mobilize their military and start cleaning out this nest of vipers.
  69. 2021 Sunday H: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– The Arizona 2020 Election Audit continues even without the help of Democrats within the state who seem to be intent at keeping it under wraps rather than jumping in with both feet to demonstrate there was NO funny business.  The auditors are hand-counting 1 million ballots.  God bless them for doing what is RIGHT.  
  70. 2021 Sunday I: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– In the era of ‘Drooling Joe’ Biden, last night/early this morning in Miami-Dade County in Florida, a gunman assaulted a concert, shot two dead, and wounded another 20.  In this era of gun control, amazing at how many folks are getting shot.   Meanwhile, Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom, DS, is bragging about how well gun control in the Golden State is doing a few days after the VTA train yard massacre in San Jose, California.   In another incident last night in Pittsburgh, a thug opens fire at a shopping mall but killed no one- two perps are in custody.
  71. 2021 Sunday J: Political News I– The Wisconsin state Assembly has ordered an investigation into Mark Zuckerberg-funded Center for Tech and Civic Life.  About time this little POS began to get his.  Next, a Michigan court rules that six recall petitions against Governor “Gravel Gertie” Gretchen Whitmer and one against Lt. Governor Garlin Gilchrist can move ahead.  Good.  Remove both of them from office.  Still, their supporters say they will fight the recall efforts in the courts.  Time to cut bait and go.  Moving on, as the Texas elections security bill moves forward, mumbling, stumbling old senile Joe Biden blasts the Lone Star State.  What a loser. Elsewhere, Governor J. Kevin Stitt, R-OK, says that ‘masks are no longer required in all government buildings.’
  72. 2021 Sunday K: Political News II– One America News reports a major poll regarding HOW the American people- in this case, New Yorkers- feel about the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Nearly 100-percent of the respondents believe the Chi-Vi came out of the Wuhan Institute of Virology nor did they believe it a naturally-occurring virus but a lab-engineered one cooked up by the Chi-Coms.  Some even believed it was retaliation for President Donald J. Trump putting an ass-whooping on them over trade.  (Note- we have said that the virus was ‘too convenient’ as for the Chi-Coms, it allowed them to clamp down on Hong Kong as well as to put their stooge Joe Biden into the White House.  They are going to pay for this BIG TIME.  Retribution is coming).   
  73. 2021 Sunday L: Political News III– Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, R-PA 14th congressional district, says the ONLY one responsible for rising inflation is Joe Biden and no one else.  In other political news, Democrats are pushing ahead with H.R. 127- the Firearm Licensing and Registration Act- which requires even more background checks, 24 hours of training paid for by the gun buyer, as well as clearance by a psychiatrist who will interview NOT only the buyer but every member of the immediate family meaning any and all relatives they can reel in with their dragnet.  Even more problematic is that all this information would become PUBLIC meaning everyone would know the guns one has as well as all the background information.  (Note- good thing we all have our firearms and will only buy them out of the backs of car trunks should this crap law ever become law of the land).
  74. 2021 Sunday M: Miscellaneous News I– the United Nations has released a report stating the danger of KILLER autonomous drones flying all over the damned place.  How soon before targeted assassinations are occurring in the skies above every nation?  If the tech companies can kill people with impunity in the Third World, soon, the thugs in the Third  will be repaying the favor.   Elsewhere, former General David Petraeus says the government has a responsibility to care for U.S. service personnel sickened by the notorious burn pits.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Coast Guard calls off a search for 10 missing Cuban refugees who went into the water off the Florida Keys.  Two bodies were recovered while several others were rescued.  The Coast Guard searched 800,000 square miles of ocean.        
  75. 2022 Monday:  It’s a holiday weekend, hopefully it will be a slow news day…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next Beach Boys album remains one of our favorites; in fact, it is the first of several that we hold especially dear.  Today’s album, “Sunflower,” came out on August 31, 1970, and although critics once again were extremely unkind and sales were crappy, it is an extraordinary album from start to finish.  The lineup on “Sunflower” features Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), and Bruce Johnston (vocals and bass).  Beginning with “Slip on Through,” sung by Dennis, the absolutely beautiful, “This Whole World” sung by Carl followed by “Add Some Music to Your Day” sung by all the band members to “Got to Know the Woman” (another Dennis rocker) to “Deidre” by Bruce Johnston to “It’s About Time,” a rocker sung by Carl and Mike.  Side two starts off with another Bruce Johnston classic, “Tears in the Morning” followed by the hauntingly beautiful, “All I Wanna Do” (Mike Love).  Next, “Forever,” a lovely Dennis love song followed by “Our Sweet Love,” a heart-warming Carl Wilson love song to “At My Window” (Bruce and Brian) to the closer, “Cool, Cool Water” sung by Brian and Mike.  Folks, this is one of the best albums by the Beach Boys and the first of several that are absolutely stunning.  We hope you seek it out and make it part of your nonstop growing collection.  Enjoy.

[i] We presented the music of Quicksilver Messenger Service on two unique occasions.  The first commenced on Friday, 25-March-2011 through Monday, 04-April-2011.  The second cycle with newer albums began on Tuesday, 20-August-2013 through Monday, 02-September-2013.  We hope you will check the albums out by visiting whatever site you do for nothing but the absolute best in rock music.

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

[iii] We hope to share the music of Lynyrd Skynyrd sometime in the next decade.  At least by 2029.

[iv] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.    The “White Album” appeared on Thursday, 24-November-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[v] We began offering music by the supergroup Cream on Friday, 17-January-2014 through Monday, 03-February-2014.  Please seek out their albums by visiting posts on those corresponding dates.  You will be glad you did.  Sadly, at the time, we also should have presented the solo catalogs of Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce, and Ginger Baker.  When we do, Derek and the Dominoes will be among them.  We hope to do so at some point within the next decade or so.

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

  59. 2016 Tuesday: Former French President Nikolas Sarkozy faces charges for having misused campaign funds.  Meanwhile, the U.S. and communist Cuba sign an agreement to permit air travel between the two countries for the first time in half-a-century.
  60. 2017 Thursday: In Baghdad, ISIS claims responsibility for the third attack in three days, a bombing in the Bayaa neighborhood that murders at least 48 people and wounds countless more.  Meanwhile, as President Donald J. Trump continues his Cabinet formation, he chooses Florida International University College of Law Dean Alex Acosta to serve as his secretary of the Labor Department.  Meanwhile, in the U.S. Senate, the august body confirms by a vote of 51-49 Mick Mulvaney to head the Office of Management and Budget.
  61. 2018 Friday: In the wake of massive anti-government protests, Ethiopia declares a state of emergency.  Light ‘em up.  Elsewhere, in Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller’s investigation into Trump-Russia collusion continues, Steve Bannon- strategist for Donald J. Trump- is called before the tribunal to answer questions for the inquisitors.  Democrats pin their hopes on this show trial BS as a means of getting their enemy out of office and into prison.  As the farce continues, 13 Russian nationals from the Internet Research Agency undergo formal accusation by the Mueller team for supposedly interfering in the 2016 Presidential Election.
  62. 2019 Saturday: India’s new high-speed train breaks down on its inaugural run, its return trip to New Delhi.  Elsewhere, Heather Nauert, spokesperson for the U.S. Department of State withdraws from consideration to become the next U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.  Meanwhile, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un announces that he will be arriving in Hanoi, Vietnam, for the upcoming second summit between Kim and President Donald J. Trump.  Finally, Boko Haram thugs attack civilians in Maiduguri, Nigeria, killing at least people via suicide bombers and wounding numerous others.  The ‘so-called religion of peace’ strikes yet again.[vi]
  63. 2020 Sunday: Members of the so-called ‘religion of peace’- Islam- strike again, this time in Pansi, Burkina Faso, when gunmen storm a church, lighting up the church killing at least 24 people and wounding loads of others.  WTF is wrong with these people?  Elsewhere, COVID-19, aka the Chi-Vi, continues running amok around the world with 71,000 reported cases globally.  However, after fierce efforts to help passengers aboard cruise ships, many are finally repatriated to their home countries.   Meanwhile, 1,100-plus former Department of Justice employees call on Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr to resign.  This BS arose after AG Barr asked the Justice Department to reconsider the sentence being imposed on President Trump’s friend, Roger Stone.  It was unfair, people, for a man his age with no prior convictions.
  64. 2021 Tuesday: Day 28 of the Biden Regime: the first disturbing thing we learned today is that Joe Biden is not the person speaking with foreign leaders but his ‘vice president,’ Ms. Kamala Harris.  What does this tell us?  Something is not right with the ‘46th president.’  Speaking of Old Joe, now that the impeachment trial has ended, the Democrats are going to pivot back and begin working on the ‘Biden agenda.’  Goody for us.  Next, the ‘Biden administration’ is in talks with Amazon.com to obtain help in rolling out the Chinese Virus vaccine.  From before the election, Joe said he ‘had a plan.’  So far, no plan is evident anywhere.  Something else he promised today via his mouthpiece Jen “Circle Back” Psaki is that protections for forbearance and foreclosure protections are to continue for those harmed by the Wuhan Virus pandemic.
  65. 2021 Tuesday A: In Washington, D.C., Capitol Hill police officers a vote of NO confidence for their current leaders.  Nancy Pelosi should be among the no confidence vote; after all, we alleged she had a BIG HAND in what happened on January 6, 2021.  Next, Senator Tom Cotton says that it’s ‘time to send troops guarding the Capitol home.’  Meanwhile, Senator Ron Johnson, R-Wisconsin, says the “Capitol Hill riot was NOT an armed insurrection,” which is simply was not.  The people did not carry firearms and other weapons- other than the Antifa and Black Lives Matter infiltrators- no matter how much liberal news media and squalling Democrats claim it was.   Meanwhile, Louisiana Congressman Bennie Thompson, Democrat, debuted a portion of the Democratic strategy to continue pursuing Donald Trump.  This POS filed a lawsuit against Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani for ‘instigating the January 6, 2021, mob action at the capital.
  66. 2021 Tuesday B: A Los Angeles County supervisor announces that schools be reopened this week as COVID-19 cases have miraculously gone down.   Meanwhile, numerous governors across the nation have signed a letter to Joe Biden demanding he fix the botched rollout of the coronavirus vaccine.  States want to reopen NOW.   Next, beleaguered New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo still won’t apologize for the more than 9,000 deaths he caused in the Empire State nor will apologize for hiding data showing the true figures of all the people HE killed in nursing homes.  You see, patients that tested positive for the Panda Pandemic and were removed to the hospital were then returned to the very same nursing home where they then infected everyone else, many of whom died.  We believe this was purposeful, to eliminate what the Nazis called ‘useless eaters,’ people who absorbed the state’s resources without giving anything back in return.  Civilized countries do not behave this way but left-wing morons sure the hell do.  Cuomo should be in an orange jumpsuit pounding away at rocks.
  67. 2021 Tuesday C: Former Utah Congressman Jason Chaffetz, Republican, says he is considering primarying Senator Mitt Romney in 2024.  We sure the heck hope the state finds a way to remove the Trump-hating POS.  Next, Texas State Senator Paul Bettencourt, 7th State Senate District, says, “Texas is going to remain RED.”  Elsewhere, the GOP of Maine is considering censuring Senator Susan Collins for voting to impeach former President Donald J. Trump.   Meanwhile, the Biden White House says it supports Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s plan to launch a 9-11-style commission to ‘investigate the TRUTH behind the January 6, 2021, Capitol Hill Riots.   Finally, former Senator David Perdue, R-GA, files the paperwork to challenge Senator Raphael Warnock in 2022 and get his old seat back.
  68. 2021 Tuesday D: Iran denies any responsibility for the rocket attack in Iraq the day before, one that killed a private contractor and wounded a U.S. servicemember.   Meanwhile, a North Korean manages to cross through the DMZ separating his country and the neighboring South Korea.  They believe him to be a defector.  We feel badly for his family in the North.  Elsewhere, White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki says, ‘Joe Biden is going to ‘recalibrate U.S. relations with Saudi Arabia and that Old Joe will- at some point- call Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, to see what’s up, dog?’
  69. 2021 Tuesday E: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 109,463,210 confirmed cases, +395,652, 2,416,661, confirmed deaths, +11,115, and 61,541,518 confirmed recoveries, +246,066.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 28,014,875 confirmed cases, up 75,283 from yesterday’s reporting, 492,385 confirmed deaths, UP 1,723, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries with NO UPDATES NOW in at least three weeks now (this number no longer even shows up).  This tells us the Biden administration no longer wants them reported.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 162,525 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, YOU claimed you had a plan to defeat the lab-engineered Panda Pandemic, what the hell are YOU going to do about it- sit on your ass playing pattycake with your grandchildren and blame everything on Donald Trump.
  70. 2021 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-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,490,585 confirmed cases, 47,141 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,606 confirmed cases, 426 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 331,305 confirmed cases, 4,739 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Massachusetts: currently, they have 560,576 confirmed cases, 15,567 confirmed deaths but NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Amazing how very few states in the country report their recovery numbers.  Ask yourselves, WHY?  What purpose does it serve to provide case numbers, numbers of fatalities but nary a number of folks who have beat this vile Chi-Com virus.  What’s up with that?
  71. 2021 Tuesday G: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 734,575 confirmed cases, 5,441 confirmed deaths, and 673,908 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other country- Spain: they have 3,096,343 confirmed cases of the Beijing Bug, 65,979 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries.   We will say this: the primary purpose of the Chi-Vi was to remove the threat of Trump- the Chi-Coms accomplished that goal.  The secondary goal (or so we believe) is to ‘cleanse the world’ of the old, the infirm, the sick, and the mentally disabled.  Anyone else who died from this Wuhan Institute of Virology lab-engineered virus is just collateral damage.  Shame on the Chi-Coms!
  72. 2021 Tuesday H:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,522.75 UP 64.35 points (+0.020%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,047.40, DOWN 47.98 points (-0.34%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,932.59, DOWN 2.24 points (-0.57%).  The price of GOLD is $1,791.20 per troy oz., -7.80 (-0.43%) while the price of SILVER is $27.30 per troy ounce, -0.03 (-0.11%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,269.40 per troy oz, -10.20 (-0.80%) while the price of COPPER is $3.83 per pound, -0.00 (-0.07%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,388.20 per troy oz, +5.60 (+0.24%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $59.78 per barrel, -0.27 (-0.45%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.45 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Iranian Rial equals 42,000.00 (same as last week).  That’s what a terrorism-based economy gets you.  Next, here is the conversion for one U.S. dollar and Bitcoin: 0.000020.  In other economic news, thanks to the Chi-Coms, airline passengers in the U.S. dropped by 20-percent in 2020.
  73. 2021 Tuesday E: Burmese police (military thugs) charge imprisoned democratically elected leader Aung San Suu Kyi with a ‘good one.’  They have accused her of violating the country’s natural-disaster management law, previously used against people who violated coronavirus restrictions.  The military who detained Suu Kyi on February 1, already faces charges for illegally importing walkie-talkies and could hold her indefinitely in prison sans charges.  Protesters in the country continue defying the military and demand her release.  
  74. 2021 Tuesday F: In Texas, winter storm conditions are trashing the Lone Star state what with 4 million Texans in the dark due to crumbling windmills and solar farms, neither of which are able to produce energy in a freak winter storm like this one that snow piled up across the state.  Rotating blackouts (welcome to California) make matters even worse and at present, at least 10 people have died in the insane wintry conditions.  In Washington, D.C., Joe Biden has issued a disaster declaration so FEMA can mobilize and begin providing citizens of the state with the life-saving aid they need.  Maybe the winter storms will stop the illegal alien invasion along the border with Mexico.   
  75. 2021 Tuesday G: The U.S. urges the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels to stop conducting cross-border raids into Saudi Arabia and to stop drone attacks on Saudi infrastructure and civilians and to join in U.S.-backed peace talks to bring peace to the region.  However, since Secretary of State Anthony Blinken removed the Houthis from the list of terrorist groups, the jihadist Shiite group has stepped up attacks on Saudi Arabia.  You know, we should sell some neutron bombs to the Saudis and permit them to do what they must do: eliminate this terrorist threat.   In other exciting news, the Office of the 45th President put out a lengthy statement in which, he slams- rightfully so- Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell for being the lowlife POS that he is. 
  76. 2021 Tuesday H: The Massachusetts Climate ‘Czar’ David Ismay resigned today after video of him holding a Zoom call with similar bozos in Vermont surfaced.  Apparently, Mr. Ismay believes that ‘seniors on fixed income, average citizens, and privately owned cars for energy usage and CO2 emissions’ and went onto say that average citizens and seniors would have to suffer in order to reach the draconian Green New Deal goals imposed on this people of this once prosperous New England state.    Once again, we see the insensitivity of liberals and RINOs who could care less about average folks and the vulnerable among us so long as they continue pushing this self-enrichment scheme not just in our country but around the world.  Look at flipping Texas, folks, home of massive quantities of domestic energy yet people, their pets, and livestock are freezing in this arctic chill that is trashing the Midwest all because they put far too much emphasis on RENEWABLE sources of energy which are half-assed at best.  It’s time to throw the Green New Deal and every a—hole connected to it out of office and into the dumpster of snake oil salespersons.   
  77. 2021 Tuesday I: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1634 with a $96 million on the line: 01, 36, 44, 54, 66, and Mega 10.  Out of 77,861 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO mega for a prize of $134,768.
  78. 2021 Tuesday J: In the final news for the evening, Governor Gavin Newsom of California is allowing mail-in ballots to EVERY California voter for 2021.  The question is, WHY would the soon-to-be-former governor do this?  Because he is going to lose his seat.  However, we will say this: IF Newsom somehow survives the recall election- NO one will ever have to doubt that the 2020 Elections were indeed stolen, in the presidential election and the Senate seats in Georgia and the one in Michigan.  This will be rock-solid proof that the ONLY reason WHY anyone would resort to mail-in ballots is because they are going to steal an election.  What are you going to do, Governor Newsom?  Are you going to prove that Democrats and RINOs manipulate and steal elections or are you going to go down like a man?

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album guitar virtuoso Richard Thompson released is a collection of his crème de la crème acoustic tunes.  “Acoustic Classics II” came out on August 10, 2017, and featured a collection of tunes culled from his solo albums, both ‘solo’ and with ex-wife, Linda Thompson as well as with Fairport Convention, the band from whence the legend sprang long, long ago.  The music is fabulous and the collection concise which is why we encourage everyone who has yet to avail themselves of the amazing music of this idiosyncratic axman should do so now.  Seek it out wherever you shop for the absolute best in music and add it to your collection- you will be extremely glad you took our advice.

ENDNOTES:

[i] At some point, we will do the music of the Mamas and the Papas the same time we do the music of Sonny & Cher.  We hope you will continue awaiting that glorious day.

[ii] 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.

[iii] This is a HOKEY pseudo-science, much like palm-reading and tarot cards to forecast the future.  The Sun is the prime driver of climate change across our Solar System, no matter what that crackpot loony tunes, pot-smoking loser, Bill Nye the ‘Science Guy’ claims.  Climate on all nine planets (yes, Pluto is a planet) is driven by or the lack of solar flares, sunspots, and solar winds.  Do not allow leftist scumbags to terrorize you into believing something that simply that is impossible for humanity to cause.  Consider this: in the previous century, s-o-o-o many bombs were dropped, so  many artillery shells rained down upon humanity, and so many nuclear weapons tests below ground, at ground level, in the atmosphere, and in the oceans occurred and yet, here we are.  Next time some loser attempts to frighten you into surrendering all of your liberties to ‘save the planet,’ tell them to go suck an un-circumcised schlong and to shut the f**k up.  You will feel much better.

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

[v] Many people believe that President Barack Hussein Obama deserves an asterisk after his name in the history books seeing as how he never cleared up the matter of his birthplace.  Yes, he did present a birth certificate of sorts, but many contend it was a forgery and that he should be removed completely from the history books of the United States.

[vi] Islam.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!
