  59. 2020 Saturday:  Already tensions are growing as to whom will replace Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the U.S. Supreme Court.  This is what most of the AICPENDBLOG.COM believe: after what the Democrats and the RINOS have put you through what with the false claims of Russian collusion, impeachment, and roadblocks at every turn, nominate the replacement on Monday and go for it.  As for quavering GOP senators, do you want to go down as a FIGHTER and lose your seat or as a COLLABORATIONIST and perhaps lose your seat anyway?  States with messed-up elections systems such as California and Maine must contest these bogus systems at the Supreme Court and the only way we can win is with a strong conservative on the court.  Republicans, do your duty as you know the Democrats would not waver in doing theirs and in fact would hasten it as quickly as possible.   President Trump is down in North Carolina today while “Pro-China Joe” Biden is at home in his basement spanking the wank.  Elsewhere, a shooting at a party with 100 revelers or more in Buffalo, New York claims the life of one partygoer and injures four others.   Speaking of SCOTUS, Fox News Channel reports (erroneously, in our view) that voters trust “Pro-China Joe” Biden on picking Supreme Court nominees by a whopping 52 percent to 45 percent for Donald Trump.  Yup, sure they do…sure they do…

  73. 2022 Monday: Observation of the Day- Well, well, well, so little Lindsey Graham- last week- released his new bill to national opprobrium that would restrict abortions to 15 weeks- across the entire country. Look, I am Pro-Life, but I suspect that what Senator Graham is doing is the same as what we allege Chief Justice John Roberts of the U.S. Supreme Court did and that is to toss the Democrats AND Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell.  We contend at the AICPENDBLOG.COM that Roberts is the one behind the now infamous leak of the opinion that sent abortion back to the fifty states.  We allege Roberts did this (haven’t found the leaker yet, have they?) so as to mobilize all the Pro-Death maggots to take to the streets and cause trouble.  Similarly, Senator Graham did this so as to prevent a GOP takeover of the Senate so his good friend and boss, the Turtle, could keep his leadership position as minority leader.  While we believe the GOP is going to overwhelm the Senate in November, the question is this: will the new Republican senators possess the big balls to vote the Turtle out of the leadership?  Look, we need to win both Houses and BOTH McConnell and that POS Kevin McCarthy must lose their seats.  Otherwise, it’s the same old shit.  Chef Kilgore Randalini.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Cheap Trick returned to form with their next studio release, “One on One” which came out on April 30, 1982.  The lineup was different what with the departure of Tom Petersson in 1980 featuring a refurbished lineup of Robin Zander (guitars, backing vocals, bass, and keyboards), Robin Zander (rhythm guitar and lead vocals), Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion), and new bassist/backing vocalist Jon Brant.  The album was somewhat a blast from the past returning the band to its earlier form, hard-rocking pop musicians.  “If You Want My Love” is the big hit on this album as well as “She’s Tight.”  We love this band, we love this album, and we encourage everyone to seek it out at your favorite site for the absolute best in rock music- you will be glad you did.

  83. 2021 Saturday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom knowing he is on the way out says that come June 15, 2021, sociali distancing will no longer be required, masks will come off, and businesses will return to 100-percent capacity.  Rather late there, “Nazi Newsom.”  In other Chi-Vi news, the United States announces that it’s going to inoculate 550,000 South Korean military personnel at no charge to that country.  No, of course not- the American taxpayers will gladly foot the bill there, Joe. Likewise, Taiwan is asking for help as their numbers continue going up.  Meanwhile, Santa Clara County, California, now demands that ALL employers monitor the vaccination statuses of their employees meaning they must inform county government of any employees who resist vaccinations for the Chi-Com Virus.  Well, well, well.  Nothing like a little bit of fascism.  F**k them.  Finally, Pennsylvania’s legislature has slapped restrictions on another ‘Nazi’ governor, this one being lowlife Tom “Il Duce” Wolf by limiting his emergency powers.  This pathetic piece of puss was going to continue the lockdown restrictions into the flipping summer. 
  84. 2021 Saturday I: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– In another win for democracy, a Georgia judge rules that 147,000 absentee ballots in Fulton County, Georgia, will be unsealed so that 2020 Election auditors can hand inspect them.  About time.  (Note- by the time these audits are done, we expect to see not only President Donald J. Trump back in the White House and Joe Biden and his fellow Dems doing time in ADX Florence Federal Prison in Florence, Colorado, but that Martha McSally, R-AZ, Kelly Loeffler, R-GA, and David Perdue, R-GA- and possibly candidate for U.S. Senate John James, R-MI, will be back in the U.S. Senate.  Going to be a phenomenally awesome day).
  85. 2021 Saturday J: Joe Biden Regime News I–  Former advisers to President Donald J. Trump are warning the American people about the army of IRS agents the corrupt Biden regime is going to send out to harass the citizens of this great country.  Bring ‘em on.  Next, as Joe Biden continues trying to trash all-things Donald J. Trump, he (or the voice in his ear) says ‘he is going to deny dictator for life Kim Jong Un international recognition.’  Uh, okay, Joe, okay.  Speaking of North Korea, old Joe appointed Sung Kim to be his diplomat for North Korea.  Elsewhere, Biden-friendly economist Jason Furman says, ‘bigger stimulus checks means less workers.’  Absolutely true.  Finally, the Biden regime is going to provide temporary protected status to Haitian illegal aliens like he and bis boss, Barack Hussein Obama, used to do.  Gee whiz.  MORE illegal aliens- when it rains, it pours.
  86. 2021 Saturday K: Whacked-Out News Of The Day– It would appear that New York State DEMOCRATIC lawmakers are facing growing blowback from Democratic voters over their allowing Palestinian and other human fecal matter to attack Jewish New Yorkers in the streets.  Yeah, this is not any way to worry about HATE CRIMES being committed against Asian-Americans (by black Democrats) while allowing HATE CRIMES to befall Jewish citizens.  In other whacked out news, the Joe Biden regime is trying to act all hip by reaching out to Millennials via dating apps like Tinder, Grindr, Ashley Madison, and other ‘dating’ and ‘hook-up’ apps.  Wow.  What a bunch of dumb asses.
  87. 2021 Saturday L: Political News I– We learn today that all the ongoing mayhem that occurs in Portland, Oregon, night after night after night has cost the city $12 million.  WTF?  Next, Governor Ron DeSantis, signed a bill into law giving Floridians a $200 million tax holiday.  (Note- want to save your job, “Nazi Newsom?”  Look at Florida).  Elsewhere, former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-HI, called for Chicago Mayor Lori “Frog Face” Lightfoot to resign over her bigotry.  Remember, the incredibly unattractive “Frog Face” Lightfoot will now ONLY Interview with Nonwhite reporters.  (Note- perhaps as a show of good faith, the mayor should divorce her white wife?  Just saying).  Meanwhile, Minneapolis last night did its best to become Chicago with two shot dead and at least another eight shot.  Wow.  Finally, senators reach a bi-partisan deal of $304 billion on a highway package.  Wow.
  88. 2021 Saturday M: Miscellaneous News I– Two prison guards who were on hand the night Jeffrey Epstein- infamous pedophile- committed ‘suicide’ in prison took a plea deal from the U.S. Department of Justice for neglect of duty which will keep them out of the Klink.  They will have to each do 100 hours of community service.  Cakewalk.   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump says he is getting his Boeing 757 updated and that it will soon be flying once again.  Rallies are coming up this summer, folks.  Finally, a former FBI data analyst Kendra Kingsbury has been indicted for allegedly taking sensitive data home. 
  89. 2022 Sunday: Let us hope it’s a slow news day and that the Democratic-Socialists and their Chi-Com allies are taking a day or two off…

  65. 2021 Thursday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 156,666,845 confirmed cases, +837,588, 3,268,876  confirmed deaths, +13,574, and 134,841,720 confirmed recoveries, +89,611.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,366,320 confirmed cases, UP 44,947 from yesterday’s reporting, 593,987 confirmed deaths, UP 839,[vii] and 26,014,813 confirmed recoveries, UP 79,672.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[viii]   
  66. 2021 Thursday A: Note: since Joe Biden became president on JANUARY 20, 2021, there have been 279,095 CHI-VI deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, in another 219.83 days, 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 184,438 deaths.      
  67. 2021 Thursday 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: 3,753,201 confirmed cases, 62,158 confirmed deaths, and 2,000,253 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,258,433 confirmed cases, 35,559 confirmed deaths, and 1,831,455 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 32,922 confirmed cases, 486 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 413,222 confirmed cases, 5,609 confirmed deaths, and 201,532 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s recovery numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Vermont, a place  that has two horrible senators- Bernie Sanders and Patrick Leahy should they become a flipping state: they have 23,296 confirmed cases, 249 confirmed deaths, but 21,007 confirmed recoveries as they won’t mention them.[ix]   
  68. 2021 Thursday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 838,828 confirmed cases, 6,374 confirmed deaths, and 831,331 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Bosnia and Hercegovina, a once communist country (well, part of a country) but now is free: 200,353 cases of the virus, 8,762 confirmed deaths and 163,445 confirmed recoveries.[x]     
  69. 2021 Thursday D:  Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,548.53, UP 318.19 points (+0.93%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,632.84, UP 50.42 points (+0.37%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,201.62, UP 34.03 points (+0.82%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $64.82 per barrel, +0.11 (+0.17%).  The price of GOLD is $1,814.70 per troy oz., -1.00 (-0.06%) while the price of SILVER is $27.39 per troy ounce, -0.09 (-0.33%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,256.00 per troy oz, -1.00 (-0.13%) while the price of COPPER is $4.60 per pound, 0.00 (+0.04%).[xi]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,944.02 per troy oz, +0.81 (+0.03%).[xii] The price of RHODIUM is $29,300.00 per troy oz., -200.00 (-0.68%).[xiii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.09.     In Peruvian Nuevo Sol, one greenback equals 3.82 and in Philippine Peso, a buck equals 47.88 and in Polish Zloty, one dollar equals 3.79 of theirs.[xiv]     
  70. 2021 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.074 per gallon, $2.881 in Florida, $3.815 in Hawaii, and $3.502 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- New York: $2.978.  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- Ethiopia: $1.917 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,255,825,311,282 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  71. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, is suing the Biden regime over its refusal to deport criminal illegal aliens.  Excellent. Next, citizens living in border states in a recent poll show that people of ALL political parties believe that Joe Biden’s immigration policies (or lack thereof) are responsible for driving cases of the ‘VID as well as increasing human trafficking and the deaths of thousands.  We must secure our borders.
  72. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden Regime News I– The International Energy Agency- the IEA- has warned that Joe Biden’s policies are allowing the Chi-Coms to obtain greater control of dwindling rare mineral resources across the globe.   Meanwhile, Dr. Jill is meeting with military spouses during a stop in the Rocky Mountain State.  Next, the FAA is hitting unruly, mask-less passengers with massive fines.   In other Biden regime news, growing numbers of people are asking WHY the United States Postal Service now is SPYING on Americans’ social media posts?  Where the hell does the USPS get authority to do this?  Twilight Zone, folks, welcome to the modern-day Joe Biden regime police state.[xviii]   Finally, U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona says, ‘kids will be back in school full-time by September.’
  73. 2021 Thursday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– House GOP leaders send a letter to Centers for Disease Control- CDC- demanding answers as to ties between teachers’ unions and the CDC.  The educators unions seem to hold a great deal of power over what the CDC says, allows, and does.  Next, Moderna is testing a COVID-19 booster shot which the pharmaceutical company shows promise in combatting the various variants.   Speaking of the vaccines, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich says that the ‘Chi-Coms will be thrilled’ if the patents are stripped from BIG PHARMA’S vaccines as the communists will get their hands on them.[xix]  Elsewhere, Israel announces they believe they may have developed a drug that may cure COVID-19.  Thank God Joe Biden has no right to hand this information over to the Chi-Coms.
  74. 2021 Thursday I: Foreign News / Overseas News– Xi Jinping has self-bestowed another title atop his shoulders, “Helmsman.”  The last person to ‘wear this moniker’ was the late Mao Zedong.   What further proof does one need to understand this thug wants to be a global dictator?   Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Tony Blinken says that the U.S. will ‘stand with Ukraine against Russia.’  Boy, oh, boy.  In other fascinating news, former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says that ‘Russian involvement, if not influence or interference in Brexit.’  Uh, okay.
  75. 2021 Thursday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– One America News obtained a letter from the Department of Justice to the state of Arizona attempting to STOP the 2020 Election audit currently going on within that state right now.  U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland swears the audit ‘could intimidate voters?’  WTF?  That is crazy, how is seeking to verify the election as free of corruption and fraud intimidating to voters unless of course, the timid voters actively participated in the fraud?   Speaking of election fraud, legislators in Wisconsin are proposing their own version of an election reform bill.  Meanwhile, Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, signed into law the strongest election integrity bill in the United States.  God bless you, governor.
  76. 2021 Thursday K: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– The upcoming new Superman movie will feature a black actor playing the man of steel.  Awesome.  Will the next Black Panther be a white actor? 
  77. 2021 Thursday L: National Security News– well-known household name Honeywell has been fined for sharing U.S. Department of Defense data with foreign countries.  The fine is a mere $13 million so it would seem as though the Biden regime wants Honeywell to continue funneling national security information to the, uh, Chi-Coms.  Really? 
  78. 2021 Thursday M: Big Tech News– Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, is officially introducing his “Bust Up Big Tech Act,” aka BUBTA, an act with which to clean the clocks of social media titans and search engine leftist losers.  We have been personally assaulted by both social media and BIG TECH and would love to see both destroyed and their individual parts plastered around the world.   In other pathetic BIG TECH NEWS, even though there is NO direct connection between ‘From the Desk of President Donald J. Trump’ and Twitter, Jack Dorsey has closed the account.  WTF?   Speaking of Twitter, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, blasts Twitter for temporarily suspending one of her aides for no particular reason.   Moving on, a member of the Facebook ‘Oversight Board’ says that the referral on President Donald J. Trump was ‘lazy.’  An overseer at Facebook says the social media site should be less politically loaded (because we hope you guys are going to get broken up…for good).
  79. 2021 Thursday N: Political News I– The state of South Carolina adds the firing squad to its list of execution methods which also include the electric chair and lethal injection.  However, seeing as how namby-pamby suppliers of drugs for lethal injection many times will not sell the necessary items to states using them to carry out capital punishment.  Next Donald Trump Jr. says the Dems ‘want his father silenced because they know he resonates with the American people.’  Meanwhile, Senator Chuck Grassley, R-IA, is upping pressure to get to the bottom of Climate Czar John F. “Lurch” Kerry’s numerous Logan Act violations.  We want to know, too, why this POS is able to collude with an ENEMY who hates our country, and no one does anything about it? 
  80. 2021 Thursday O: Political News II– Former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, DS, is colluding with a far-left Swiss billionaire so he can get funds to screw up gerrymandering efforts in states where changes in proportional representation and loss or gain of new House sets is occurring or is set to occur.   In other news, Rep. Steve Scalise, R-LA 1st congressional district, says of colleague, Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, is focused way too much on the past and not on the present and future.  We hope she is out next week.   NO MORE RINOS.  In other hilarious news, Governor Gretchen “Gravel Gertie” Whitmer, DS-MI, is set to receive a ‘profiles in courage award’ or some such dreck for her ‘handling of the pandemic in Michigan.’  What a joke.  This dingbat should be in prison.  In other news, Caitlyn Jenner- in response to critics going after her now that she is seeking Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom’s seat- says, “I move on.”  There you go.  
  81. 2021 Thursday P: Political News III–  A bar owner in California was busted for selling fake Chi-Vi vaccine documentation to people seeking them.  Next, Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DSPUSA-MN 5th congressional district says, ‘it’s time to grow a backbone and end the filibuster.’  F— you.   Next, New York’s Sheldon Silver, former Democratic speaker of the state assembly, has been ordered to return to federal prison.  Elsewhere, TenCent is negotiating with U.S. authorities to keep its investment in the U.S.  Meanwhile, the FBI says they have close to 500 (440) arrests in the BIG FALSE FLAG OPERATION the Democrats and their storm-troopers of Antifa and Black Lives Matter ran on January 06, 2021, at the U.S. Capitol.  Yes, there were Trump supporters there but it’s clear to anyone with political knowledge that most of the people were left-wing infiltrators who nearly pulled off a coup of sorts but eventually failed.  The only ones rotting in the D.C. hoosegow are Trumpers while the Antifa and BLM thugs have all been sprung and in the wind.
  82. 2022 Friday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album released by the Band was the self-titled, “The Band.”  Released on September 22, 1969, this album known as the “Brown Album” due to its album cover, was an even bigger hit their freshman debut.  Like their first album, it produced some powerful hits such as “Up on Cripple Creek” and “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down.”  Once again, the band featured Rick Danko (bass, vocals, and fiddle), Robbie Robertson (guitars and vocals), Levon Helm (drums, percussion, vocals, mandolins, and tambourines), Richard Manuel (pianos, organs, and vocals), and Garth Hudson (keyboards and saxophones).  What we have for you today is the “The Band 50th Anniversary Edition” (where the hell does the time go?), a deluxe version that came out on September 27, 2019.  This is a wonderful album, one we anticipate everyone will want to own because in this day and age of bullshit music, there is nothing more refreshing than a blast from the past such as the one we are promoting here.  Please seek it out and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure.

  68. 2007 Monday: Four years ago, this very day, President George W. Bush stood on the deck of the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln and said- regarding the invasion of Iraq- “Mission accomplished.”  Almost as soon as the words spilled out of his mouth, the insurgency broke out and claimed more U.S. lives than the invasion did.  Anyhow, President Bush vetoed an Iraq War funding bill because included within it was more downtime between tours in the godforsaken country as well as increased training, better equipping, and hardcore benchmarks the Iraqi government had to meet.  The more we look back at events such as this, the more we believe George W. Bush did a HORRIBLE thing and that the Deep State and the Neocons propelled him into it.  We must always think of our servicemen-and-women ahead of regime change wars, especially when they are undeclared, and the entire nation is not behind the effort.  Meanwhile, a May Day pro-illegal alien immigration rally goes awry in the City of Angels today as out-of-control illegal alien loves got their asses beat by the LAPD.  Go for it.

  71. 2010 Friday: The Washington Post publishes a story in which, two retired U.S. Army generals tell the reporter that the U.S. military is having a tough time with 25-percent of the population being obese and ‘too fat to fight.’  Perhaps we should return to a draft and get these punks back in shape?   Meanwhile, some member of the ‘religion of peace’ sets off a bomb inside a Mogadishu mosque sending at least two dozen people to visit with Allah sooner than they had anticipated.

  79. 2018 Tuesday: Another one bites the dust: the Dominican Republic, under pressure from the Chi-Coms, severs ties with Taiwan and opens diplomatic relations with Beijing.   Elsewhere, it’s May Day and what could be better than communists and socialists running amok in the streets?  In France, Paris sees some violent demonstrations what with car dealerships and fast-food restaurants being set ablaze.  Not good.  Maybe the authorities should utilize some lead on these scumbags?  Just saying.
  80. 2019 Wednesday: U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr sits before the Senate Judiciary Committee, so he shag questions on HOW he handled the fraudulent Robert S. Mueller III report into ‘Trump-Russia collusion,’ since proven to be little more than a hoax.  Meanwhile, WikiLeaks founder receives a sentence of 50 weeks in a British slammer over his skipping bail back in 2012.  After that…he could be on his way to the United States.  Elsewhere, following the leak of a defense council meeting in Great Britain regarding the danger communist China’s Huawei poses the United Kingdom, British Prime Minister Theresa May fires her Secretary of State Defense Gavin Williamson, blaming him for the leak.
  81. 2020 Friday: COVID-19 continues running amok and communist China continues acting like the Sgt. Schultz character on the old B & W TV show, “Hogan’s Heroes,” “We know nothing, we know nothing.”  Okay, be like that.  Anyhow, here are today’s statistics: around the globe, we have 3,033,296 confirmed cases of this mess, 235,290 confirmed deaths but 1,039,588 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 1,128,460 confirmed cases of the Kung Flu, 65,435 confirmed deaths, and 137,944 confirmed recoveries.  If you notice, confirmed deaths in the U.S. rose only 1,897 over the course of today while confirmed recoveries rose by 9,508 so folks, WTF?  Far-left fascist governors, quit behaving like you work in China and not the United States- that means you, Ralph Northam, which means you, Gretchen Whitmer, that means you, northeast liberal lunatic governors and that means you, J.B. Pritzker.  STOP behaving like Nazis!

Currently, Joe is shy 185,892 deaths.

  88. 2021 Saturday F: Political News I–  For some unknown reason (yeah, right), Democrats won’t get behind Missouri Republican Senator Josh Hawley’s bill with which to rein in BIG TECH.  The Dems are in bed with BIG TECH.  Next, legal scholar and professor Dr. Alan Dershowitz says the FBI raid on Rudy Giuliani’s townhouse was “UNCONSTITUTIONAL.”  Next (and we sincerely doubt this) the Democrats are acting as though they are willing to make concessions on the infrastructure bill they are trying to ramrod through Congress.    Elsewhere, Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, says that ‘D.C. statehood should not be granted through unilateral congressional action but through the amendments process as it should.’  The Democrats are angry.
  89. 2021 Saturday G: Political News II– Former U.S. Secretary for the Interior Ryan Zinke is going to run for one of Montana’s new U.S. House seats.  Elsewhere, the liberals are ginning up a buzz about U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer possibly going into retirement.  Boy, does the left want to get this guy off the nation’s high court so they can emplace another piece of fecal matter on the court such as the always-angry Stacey Abrams (God forbid).  Meanwhile, at a Utah state GOP convention, the good people of that state booed U.S. Senator Mitt Romney, RINO.  Good.   Finally, California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom knows he is going to lose in November’s recall election because he is releasing 76,000 violent and repeat state prison offenders early.  He wants to make sure the people of the Golden State suffer at the hands of these Untermensch.   Thank you, governor, thank you.
  90. 2021 Saturday H: Foreign News / Overseas News– North Korea says that the Biden regime’s actions suggest the United States wants war with the Democratic Republic of North Korea.  Joe is taking us backward.   Elsewhere, further west in the scenic countryside of Afghanistan’s eastern Logar province, members of the so-called ‘religion of peace’ conducted a car bombing that propelled 27 unfortunate souls to the ‘other side’ while leaving many more suffering to one degree or another.  Many of the poor bastards were high school students.  Wow.  The Taliban are now warning of counterattacks on U.S. forces as today was the day for total withdrawal.[xxi]  Meanwhile, regarding the Bat Flu vaccine, Canada is putting a halt on the distribution of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine due to contamination fears at the manufacturing plant.  And the liberals SWEAR that the anxieties of vaccine receivers is what has led to blood clots and other reported problems and NOT the vaccine.  Yeah, right.  We’re with you, Canada.
  91. 2021 Saturday I: Miscellaneous News I– California is trying to get their hands on incarcerated Harvey Weinstein but the extradition request currently in on hold.  He is going nowhere (although we are surprised that “Gropin’ Joe” Biden’s regime has not yet sprung a fellow groper).   Next, the U.S. Army’s investigation into the death of Specialist Vanessa Guillen has determined that she was sexually abused, reported the abuse as she should to her superiors, and that nothing was done about it.  This is beginning to sound like the movie, “A Few Good Men” (1992) because at least 20-plus people at Fort Hood, Texas, are in trouble for this case and several similar other cases.  What is wrong with our military?   Elsewhere, citizens of the Empire State will soon see their electricity bills skyrocket as the last reactor- Indian Point 3- at the nuclear power plant closed today.  What is wrong with people?  Nuclear energy is the safest and cheapest way of creating electricity, but the Green Meanies have everyone terrified of nuclear power plants (thank you, “The China Syndrome” (1979).   Finally, in the era of feeble Joe Biden, both CNN and MSNBC have seen their ratings precipitously fall to the point where WE hope they go broke. 
  92. 2021 Saturday J: Mass Shootings News– In Green Bay, Wisconsin, tonight, people were having an enjoyable time at the Oneida Casino when a gunman strolled in and began blasting the place.  Several people were shot but at press time, the authorities had not yet shared information on the status of the victims.  The cops did get their hands on the shooter, however.  Meanwhile, in St. Louis, Missouri, today was a deadly day with two people shot and killed and another dozen shout and wounded.  We await status on these victims, too.  What is it in the era of Joe Biden that shootings are occurring all over the flipping place?  What is it about drooling Joe Biden?

[i] We offered the music of the legendary Pacific Gas & Electric beginning on Thursday, 12-January-2012 through Sunday, 15-January-2012.  We hope you will seek out the music by this famous, interracial hippie rock band.

[ii] When we do the music of Blood, Sweat & Tears, we will also do the music of Chicago at the same time.  Years ago, at the Google Blogger blog, we did the music of the third great horn band, Sons of Champlin. 

[iii] On Wednesday, 14-June-2017, we began presenting the music of the Guess Who and of its individual members- including Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Randy Bachman, Burton Cummings, and Bravebelt.  The entire discography ran from the above date through Sunday, 01-October-2017.  We hope you will check them out.

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

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

[vi] When the time will be right for the presentation of Elvis Presley is unknown but if we are still going strong in the 2030s, we expect to do so.  Please, stay tuned.

[vii] We shared the music of the Rolling Stones (and the group’s individual members) beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members solo projects.  The album on which, “Brown Sugar” appeared- “Sticky Fingers”- was offered on Wednesday, 13-April-2016.  It was a wonderful addition to the band’s discography; we hope you will seek it out wherever you shop for the best rock music.

[viii] We will be presenting Elton John’s music at some point within the next five years.  Please stay tuned for the day when we do.

[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.

[xxi] Sadly, we believe this is all by design because we believe the Military-Industrial-Political Complex does not want to pull out of this s—hole country.  Too much money is to be made supplying the military with the tools of the trade which means we want a ‘Gulf of Tonkin Incident’ to occur so decrepit old Joe Biden can mumble into a microphone, “We can’t leave.  We must stay and fight this evil” which means another generation of American youth will continue being killed and maimed.  WTF does it take to end a frigging war.  The new corporate form of government has been with us since George W. Bush took us to war in Iraq over NOTHING and will remain here until the American people stand up and say, “WE AREN’T GOING TO TAKE THIS CRAP ANYMORE.”  As an old man, I, Moses Scharbug III, most likely won’t be able to see it but I sure hope successive generations do.  This crap must end.

93. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, APRIL 03, 2022

2009 Friday: The economy continues to crash and burn in the United States as another 663,000 jobs fall by the wayside thanks to the Dems having engineered the housing crisis so as to get a Democrat elected in 2008. Unemployment rate goes up to 8.5-percent which is not good, nor will it improve by much over the subsequent seven-plus years.

  2. 419 Wednesday: The 41.1st Roman Catholic Antipope Eulalius ended his time as antipope on this date.  He first became pontiff in opposition to Pope Boniface I on December 27, 418.

  8. 1829 Friday: James Carrington patented the coffee mill on this date.

  14. 1910 Sunday: Mountaineers conquer the highest mountain in North America, Alaska’s Mt. McKinley.
  15. 1915 Saturday: The Austro-Hungarians with German reinforcements begin driving the Russians back in the Carpathians.   The Russians had a unique plan that if they could penetrate through this harsh range of mountains, they might be able to knock the Hapsburgs out of the war.  Although not the strongest member of the Central Powers, the core Austrian, and Hungarian troops and not their Slavic allies were up to the task.
  16. 1916 Monday: During World War I, the horrendous battle of Verdun continues as the French mount counterattacks against recent German domains.  The city of Verdun is a fortress surrounded by a series of fortresses (sort of like Dien Bien Phu would be decades later though not as fortified) and the Germans believe if they can punch through, they might be able to bring France to its knees, possibly knock her out of the war for good.
  17. 1917 Tuesday: Arriving in Petrograd on a closed train from Switzerland, Bolshevik revolutionary Vladimir Ilyich Lenin finally arrives home.  He will soon be up to no good.  Meanwhile, World War I continues on all fronts with heavy fighting on both Western and Eastern Fronts as well as in Africa as the Allies attempt to crush the German Colonial Army in East Africa.  No matter how many times the Brits, South Africans, and now the Portuguese think they have their quarry contained, the Germans are always able to break through the encirclement.
  18. 1918 Wednesday: German troops commence landing in Finland to help their new ally as the Russian Civil War rages between White and Red forces.  Other Allied units are considering landing in eastern and norther regions to help White forces crush the Bolsheviks.  It is becoming a horrible mess.  In Austria, government officials report having received peace feelers from France.
  19. 1919 Thursday: The victorious allies hammering out the post-World War I peace in Paris, France, had sent South African General Jan Smuts to Budapest where a new Soviet-style regime had seized power.  The idea was to negotiate a peace between east and west, but it was failure, the communists had no intention of participating in anything.  All Western diplomatic missions begin pulling out and American wives of Hungarian citizens are to leave with the British.  Things are in an uproar in Eastern Europe thanks to the NEW Soviet Union.  
  20. 1922 Monday: In the USSR, Josef Stalin becomes general secretary of the Communist Party.  Lenin, suffering from poor health did not want to appoint his far more murderous comrade Stalin to this post but Stalin was ‘caretaker’ for the ailing revolutionary.  Soon, Stalin would begin consolidating his power.

  26. 1941 Thursday: Based on intelligence, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill warns Josef Stalin of the impending German invasion of the Soviet Union; however, Stalin does NOT act on it.  Meanwhile, Rasjid al-Gailani forms pro-German regime in Iraq.  Soon, they will be doing their utmost to drive the British occupiers out of their country- or so they think.  Elsewhere, British troops roll into the capital of Eritrea in hot pursuit of the Fascist Italians.
  27. 1942 Friday: The Japanese commenced their first all-out assault on U.S. and Filipino forces defending the Bataan Peninsula.  Elsewhere, the Imperial Japanese carry out a firebombing on Mandalay, the capital of Burma, killing thousands of Burmese and British nationals who haven’t yet fled for their lives.
  28. 1943 Saturday: Richard Manuel, future pianist, and vocalist with the Band[i] was born in Stratford, Ontario, Canada, on this date.  Meanwhile, a sad incident occurs in Wellington, New Zealand, when U.S. Marines got into a fight with New Zealand troops of Maori origin.  The Marines did not want them entering the servicemen’s club.
  29. 1944 Monday: British Prime Minister Winston Churchill’s obsession with the German battleship Tirpitz in a Norwegian fjord when yet another RAF strike on the vessel fails to do any damage.

  35. 1953 Friday: “TV Guide” underwent first publication on today’s date.  Meanwhile, down in Magnolia, North Carolina, future heavyweight boxing champion of the world- James “Bonecrusher” Smith- is born.  Over the course of his career, ‘Bonecrusher’ would compile a pro record of 62 fights, 44 wins (32 KOs), 17 losses, and 1 draw.
  36. : During the Battle of Dien Bien Phu, heavy night assaults fall on Huguette 6 as the communists continue reducing the perimeter.  Air supplies are having a grim time locating the main camp as the weather is bad.  At other points, the communists broadcast in German over loudspeakers telling their foes to come over and pick up French wounded for transport back to the main camp.  When the stretcher-bearers arrive, instead of wounded, they find mutilated corpses.  Evil.[vi]

PDT.  Late in the day, President Trump fired Michael Atkinson, the intelligence community ‘watchdog,’ most likely over all the FISA abuses that occurred in the plot to remove the 45th president for being a ‘Russian agent,’ since proven to be nothing more than an attempted coup.  Good riddance, you POS.
  69. 2021 Saturday: COVID-19 NEWS– Rasmussen releases the results of a new poll that says a vast majority of Americans oppose any type of COVID-19 passport.  Period.   Elsewhere, a big hubbub continues in Vermont where Governor Phil Scott, R-VT, has released his plan for everyone age 16 and up and who identifies as black, Native American, or any other minority- BUT NO WHITES- can come in and receive their Chi-Vi vaccines.  As Chef Bea O’Malley of the AICPENDBLOG.COM says, ‘anytime white liberals tell black folks they should do something for their own good is when it’s time to turn tail and run like hell.’  No thank you, Governor Scott. 
  70. 2021 Saturday A: GEORGIA POLITICS– Governor Brian Kemp comes out today and before a mixed crowd of our fellow citizens lambasted Major League Baseball’s decision to pull BOTH the Major League Baseball All-Star Game and the MLB Draft.  He explains the law and urges everyone to read the law.  Even hardcore Peach State Democrats such as Senator Jon Ossoff and Stacey Abrams blasted the MLB for doing this to the state.  There is NOTHING wrong with this law.  As Governor Kemp says, ‘cancel culture must end because if you don’t think it’s NOT going to come for you, you are sadly mistaken.’
  71. 2021 Saturday B: FOREIGN NEWS/OVERSEAS NEWS– Apparently, the Biden administration is going to negotiate a nuclear deal with the belligerent Iranians in Vienna, Austria.  Good luck.   Meanwhile, the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Dwight D. Eisenhower passed through the newly reopened Suez Canal. 
  72. 2021 Saturday C: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– Mike Lindell of My Pillow fame begins airing his new special on the fraudulent 2020 Presidential Election, “Scientific Proof,” in which he points out the massive body of evidence that shows exactly how the same algorithms were applied from one end of the country to the other flipping elections using information from the 2010 U.S. Census.   It is rather mystifying (yeah, right) how the same algorithms and the same spikes at the same times occurred in each of the states the Biden-Harris campaign ‘won’ the election.  This is not good, and we must get to the truth.  Then, we must figure out how to expel a FRAUDULENT PRESIDENT from the White House.  No wonder we have a ‘Fort Pelosi’ in Washington, D.C., and no wonder they sent out a crazed Nation of Islam member yesterday to commit a criminal act so the fort could remain standing.  Just saying, folks.
  73. 2021 Saturday D: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– Texas is going to start focusing on securing its elections in the Lone Star State so Democrats won’t be able to interfere or to steal in its elections.  Good for you.  Next, 13 bipartisan states are pushing back on the Biden administration for all the insane laws they are trying to stuff down the throats of free Americans.  Moving on, recent statistics show that Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Baby Evita, aka AOC, aka Sandy Cortez, aka the Fly, DS-NY 14th congressional district, is among the least effective Democrats in Congress among their 240 Democratic members.  However, she is ranked slightly higher than House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi who we believe is ranked at number #237.   Speaking of “Mumbles” Pelosi, she is extending proxy voting until May 19 so any timid members can phone in their votes.  Speaking of voting, Wyoming passes a voting law requiring Voter ID.
  74. 2021 Saturday E: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka “Sleep-Her-Way-to-the-Top,” Harris is being pressed on holding a formal press conference on the border crisis now that she has been delegated the “Border Czar.”  No one knows where the overly mirthful “Kooky” is?   Meanwhile, Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district, says that Joe Biden focusing on the WOKE agenda is putting our national security at risk.  You had better believe it.  Next, Governor Kim Reynolds, R-IA, has signed a bill permitting its residents to carry firearms sans a permit.  Democrats are livid.  Finally, Joe Biden is still working at staffing his administration with loads more WOKE, far-left, liberal Democrats, almost all of whom are WHITE men.  Say it ain’t so.
  75. 2021 Saturday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS IV– Congressman Kevin Brady, R-TX 8th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden’s infrastructure bill will drive taxes way up while sending more American jobs overseas for good as well as lowering wages and minimizing benefits.’  Congressman Scott Perry, R-PA 10th congressional district, says that ‘most people support infrastructure but there is so much crap stuffed into the bill such as making ‘school lunches green’ that it’s a mess on steroids.  Next, President Donald J. Trump says that the (bogus) allegations launched against Congressman Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district could be a ‘smear job.’[ix]
  76. 2021 Saturday G: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS V– After Joe Biden lectured the American people as to HOW MANY people they could have in their homes on Easter Sunday, he now is taking incoming fire from the very same American people for his plans to have the entire Biden Clan- every single crooked one of them- in a big family get-together at Camp David.  There you go: liberal hypocrisy on display.  Next, there are rumors that the two underage skanks that murdered the Uber Eats driver earlier this week in Washington, D.C., and showed absolutely NO remorse are going to get a plea deal.  Lock the slut bags up.   Next, rapper DMX is in the hospital following a drug-induced heart attack.  Fine upstanding member of the community to be sure.  Finally, a North Carolina house party gone wild occurred early this morning when 3 people were shot dead, 4 wounded, and the rest in the wind.  How many mass shootings have now occurred under the Biden regime?

[i] Not sure when we will present the music of this famed Canadian American rock band but when we do, you will be the first to know.  The Band ranks among the all-time greatest rock bands of the 1960s and 1970s.  You won’t want to miss them.

[ii] We began promoting the music of not only the Spencer Davis Group but also Traffic, Steve Winwood, Chris Wood, Jim Capaldi, and Dave Mason.  The presentation commenced on Monday, 30-November-2015 through Sunday, 20-March-2016.  This offering also included Blind Faith.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.

[iii] We will be presenting Elton John’s music at some point within the next five years.  Please stay tuned for the day when we do.

[iv] Not clear as to when we present the music of the Fairport Convention and of Richard Thompson, their famed guitarist but we sure as heck hope we do within the next decade.

[v] See previous.

[vi] Our main reference for the epic battle at Dien Bien Phu is “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, 2004, Da Capo Press.  Please seek this amazing historical work out for a concise look at the battle that ended French control of French Indochina and the birth of Vietnam.

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

[viii] Coincidentally the congressional district represented by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

[ix] The Democrats ALWAYS tip their hands as to whom they fear by the bogus allegations they launch at their targets.  Anyone remember former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin?  The Democrats did EVERYTHING they could to destroy her, so terrified of her were they.

  70. 2021 Thursday: JOE BIDEN’S FIRST PRESS CONFERENCE IN 65 DAYS- An extremely fatigued, slow-moving, mumbling, stumbling Joe Biden gave his first official press conference today.  He began mumbling through his pre-rehearsed lines, clearing his throat, looking furtively around the room, and spewing whatever the voice in his earpiece told him to spew.  This was extremely embarrassing for the American people and in the eyes of the world, deeply humiliating.  It is clear that Joe Biden is NOT his own man but a marionette on a string being danced about by someone else.   Within 3 minutes starting at 10:29 A.M. PDT he moved to questions by 10:32 with Zeke from the Associated Press getting the first shot.  Joe said, “I was elected to solve problems,” said Joe.   Regarding the border, Joe Biden says, “Nothing has changed, it happens every year, hundreds of thousands of illegals come here every year.”  He says it’s ‘NOT because he’s a good guy but it’s because this is the safest time not to die in the desert coming here.’  Wow, Joe.  Joe then blamed President Donald J. Trump for ‘dismantling the system, defunding HHS, limiting the number of beds available, and doing all sorts of other evil things that poor old Joe is now having to rebuild.’  (Note- Joe, just build the wall and f**king deport them all!).  Joe lied by saying he is sending back ‘thousands, tens of thousands of people who are over age 18 and single as well as vast majorities of families.’  He said that ‘they are not crossing our border.’   (Joe went about 62 minutes and answered questions from approximately 13-14 reporters.  Congrats, Joe, you didn’t topple over, and blood did not start flowing out of your eyes, ears, and nostrils).[viii] 
  71. 2021 Thursday A: LOGAN ACT VIOLATIONS- Information is beginning to arise showing that former U.S. Secretary of State (and current climate change czar) John F. Kerry committed numerous Logan Act violations by conducting shadow diplomacy behind the Trump administration’s back with all manner of noxious toadstools such as Iran, the Chi-Coms, the Russians, the Venezuelans, and every other crap-hole country in the world.  Mr. Kerry should be doing time in Ft. Leavenworth for his crimes.
  72. 2021 Thursday B: POLITICAL NEWS I- a recent report shows that moderate Democrats outperformed their crazier left-wing Democrats in the 2020 Elections, yet the loony tunes liberal losers seem to retain control.   Next, Senator Bernie Sanders- breaking with the Biden administration- is demanding higher taxes than those proposed by Biden and his Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen.  Communism is expensive to fund.  Next, Joe Biden is planning on spending another $10 billion to get more shots into arms and has announced that he is going to double his pledge of getting 100 million vaccines administered in his first 100 days to 200 million doses.   In other fascinating news, the U.S. Secret Service tried to CONCEAL from the eyes of the American people a gun purchase by Hunter Biden.  Need that money to fend off people trying to steal his crack cocaine.
  73. 2021 Thursday C: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I- The Atlanta Police Department arrested a man walking around the city carrying a concealed rifle and handguns.  Another fellow with a sex addiction?  Speaking of firearms, a federal appeals court in Hawaii has ruled that Americans have no intrinsic rights to open or conceal carry firearms of any kind.  Uh, okay.  Elsewhere, the murdering (allegedly) POS Syrian refugee who shot up King Soopers Grocery Store in Boulder, Colorado, earlier in the week appeared in court for the first time.  The judge denied Mr. Ahmad Al-Aliwi Alissa bail pending a mental health evaluation.   The scumbag should not be getting bail of any sort.  Period.   Next, Joe Biden backs a Supreme Court ruling on recent ruling in which law enforcement confiscated some schmo’s guns.
  74. 2021 Thursday D: COVID-19 CHI-VI- Scientists are studying four different possible origins for the Wuhan Virus Pandemic encircling the globe for about the fourth time now.  The Chi-Coms swear ‘nothing to see here’ and that ‘the U.S. Army snuck it into our country.’  Oh, please, you guys are communists, you are a bunch of lying f**ks.  Meanwhile, AstraZeneca continues to swear that despite all the claims to the contrary and controversy surrounding their vaccine for the China Virus, it’s still 76-percent effective.   Elsewhere, Empire State Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo finds himself in yet another crossfire, this time over him, his family, and sycophants receiving COVID-19 tests when very few tests were available to John and Jane Q. Public, the “Killer Governor” went behind the scenes and did what he needed to do for him, his family, and his hangers-on.  This is yet another impeachable offense facing the so-called “Lov Gov.”  Finally, the Biden administration is going to partner with dialysis clinics so the vaccines can be distributed to more people on a faster basis.
  75. 2021 Thursday E: POLITICAL NEWS II- When asked about him supporting elimination of the filibuster,[ix] Joe Biden hemmed and hawed about that.  Next, some ignorant reporter was asking Joe Biden if he were going to run again, if “Kooky Kamala” would be his running mate, and if he thought he would be running against President Donald J. Trump in 2024.  Even for us, this is incredibly stupid, and we would never ask anything about 2022, much less 2024.  Most people believe Joe is not going to be in office for a year, much less four, so why ask the old bugger if he will be seeking a second term, whether Ms. Sleep-her-way-to-the-Top will be his running mate, and whether the guy from whom he stole the election will be running  to win it back- a third time.  WTF?  This question, however, caused Joe Biden to begin mumbling and whispering.   
  76. 2021 Thursday F: POLITICAL NEWS III- Scandal-ridden former Missouri Governor Eric Greitens is considering a run to replace retiring Senator Roy Blunt.  The Republican former governor was involved in a steamy sex scandal and most people in the state are praying that someone better will step up and replace Senator Blunt.  We shall see.  Next, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says, ‘H.R. 1 is the single most dangerous bill in Congress today.’  Note- Georgia just passed some hardcore voting restriction laws designed to thwart H.R. 1.  Meanwhile, former CBP boss Tom Homan says that ‘the appointment of “Kooky Kamala” to be the new ‘Border Czar’ has to be the absolute worst person for the job.’  NO one respects “Kooky” because (1) she is unlikable, (2) unqualified, and (3) as untalented as they come.  She will make things far worse than they already are.   Next, according to Facebook’s oversight board, the permanent ban of President Donald J. Trump might not be so permanent (they are afraid that he is developing a superior social media product and want to cut him some slack so perhaps he will be lulled into complacency and won’t follow through).  Finally, we learn that Google received its ‘monopoly’ following their aid to President Barack Hussein Obama’s successful re-election bid.  No wonder the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day at Google Blogger soon found itself behind Google’s blockade.
  77. 2021 Thursday G: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II- A rare Vincent Van Gogh painting of Paris is going up for auction.   Meanwhile, the Olympic Torch Relay kicks off under the cloud of the Chinese Virus.  Elsewhere, first time jobless claims last week fell to 684,000 new ones which is the best number since the start of the pandemic. Another 242,00 filed for special pandemic relief last week.  In total, 4.1 million workers remain on unemployment benefits.   Meanwhile, HHS is going to partner with the Pentagon to take two Texas military bases, Fort Bliss and Lackland Air Force Base so they can send illegal alien brats there to stay.   The Biden administration is struggling to find holding pens for all the illegals which is why partnering with private prisons across the U.S. would be a great way to house people who are already going to end up being imprisoned a taste of what’s to come.  Viva El Norte!
  78. 2021 Thursday H: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 124,683,860 confirmed cases, +579,564, 2,742,357  confirmed deaths, +9,863, and 70,731,503 confirmed recoveries, +338,716.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,223,587 confirmed cases, up 61,840 from yesterday’s reporting, 550,726 confirmed deaths, UP 1,315, and 117,401,619 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. 
  79. 2021 Thursday I: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 222,259 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  
  80. 2021 Thursday J: 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: 3,648,021 confirmed cases (same as yesterday’s count), 57,909 confirmed deaths (same as yesterday’s), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,950 confirmed cases, 454 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 359,290 confirmed cases, 5,249 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., the second highest state after California- Texas: currently, they have 2,762,648 confirmed cases, 47,701 confirmed deaths, but sadly, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 829,689 confirmed cases, 6,122 confirmed deaths, and 808,869 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).   Let’s look at one other country- Switzerland, home of (allegedly) lots of Nazi loot: 588,118 cases of the virus, 10,247 confirmed deaths and 317,600 confirmed recoveries.

  82. 2021 Thursday L: 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 $3.885 per gallon, $3.630 in Hawaii, and $3.323 in Washington state.[xiv]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,093,608,650,950 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven running amok. 
  83. 2021 Thursday M: POLITICAL NEWS IV- South Dakota Senator Mike Rounds, Republican, said he’d like to see the Biden administration begin grabbing legally-owned firearms from the American people.  Next, Joe Biden defends his crappy border stance, saying that all kids who make it across will not be returned home, that the American people will take care of them.  He also blames President Donald J. Trump for the BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE for which he and his administration bear FULL RESPONSIBILITY.[xvi]  Joe, for Christ’s sake (If you still believe in His teachings), BUILD THE WALL, AND DEPORT THEM ALL.  Stop giving them COVID-19 relief checks, stop giving them hotel accommodations, we have Americans sleeping in the streets, in their cars, and in back alleyways, stop with the fricking illegal aliens.  Enough is flipping enough already![xvii]  Meanwhile, Joe Biden slaps down another Trump-era policy by handing the Palestinians $15 million of taxpayer monies to help them combat the Chinese Virus.  WTF!  Elsewhere, Axios says workers installed bullet-proof doors in the U.S. House of Representatives today.    
  84. 2021 Thursday N: POLITICAL NEWS V- New California Attorney General Rob Bonta once tried to recruit communists to work within state government.  WTF?  West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrissey blasts the Biden administration for trying to advance its crackpot climate change agenda via its COVID-19 Relief Bill and through its upcoming ‘infrastructure bill.’   Elsewhere, New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo blasts those saying he and his family jumped to the head of the line in getting both Chi-Vi tests and immunizations.  He would never, never, do something as egregious as this, yet millions of Americans believe that he did.  Cuomo, just frigging resign before they complete the ethics probe into your criminal actions.[xviii]  In other news, the White House and the U.S. Secret Service is denying anyone did anything to cover up son, Hunter’s mishandling of a gun back in 2018.[xix]  NO one would ever do anything like that or so they claim.  Finally, the Arizona State Attorney General Mark Brnovich sues the Biden administration over the ban on tax cuts contained within the Biden COVID-19 PORKULUS RELIEF BILL.  What’s up with that, Joe?
  85. 2021 Thursday O: POLITICAL NEWS VI- Joe Biden is facing criticism from across the board over his stumble-bom performance at his ‘press conference’ today what with reading from a binder of notes, answering pre-arranged questions, and not toppling over in deep, gape-mouthed sleep.  He has his defenders but folks, he answered NO questions about the jihadist shooter in Boulder, Colorado, did not say it was an ACT OF HATE as only ‘white people’ as we are constantly told are the ONLY HATERS in the world.  The reporters congratulated Joe Biden on ‘being such a great guy that his personal magnetism is drawing millions of illegal aliens to flood into our country.’  This man MUST GO NOW.
  86. 2021 Thursday P: FOREIGN/OVERSEAS NEWS I- The Suez Canal may be out of commission now for months seeing as how a massive container ship ran aground blocking the channel.  There are 100 ships on both sides, trying to make passage which will now be impossible.  This will lead to higher prices and less goods for the world market.  Meanwhile,  the Chi-Coms are facing boycotts by numerous companies and corporations over their imprisonment of 1-2 million Uighur Muslims in concentration camps in Xinjiang Province.  Nike is among the big names with numerous others following close behind.  Will the Chi-Coms submit to global pressure?  Most likely not.  Communists always need a good ass-whooping before they pullback from their criminal actions.  
  87. 2021 Thursday Q: OTHER NEWS- Jessica Walters- star of the old show, “Arrested Development,” has died at age 80.  Next, Rutgers University will require proof of vaccination for the Chi-Vi before one can return to classes in the fall.  Elsewhere, the CEO of Twitter- Jack “Rasputin” Dorsey- mocks yes/no questions with a poll of some sort.  Screw him.   Meanwhile, decrepit old Joe Biden says the battle over voting rights (H.R. 1 federal takeover of the voting system) ‘makes Jim Crow look like Jim Eagle.’  F**k you, Joe.  Next, Scott Hennen/ partner, Flag Family Media & Fieldstone Group reported to Newsmax Grant Stinchfield reports that all sorts of evidence showing passports from Haiti, Cuban licenses, air tickets from Colombia, and welcome wagon slips informing people where to cross, how to cross, when to cross,  and once in the United States where to go.  The country is being overrun and the ‘Biden administration’ could give a flying f**k.  All patriotic Americans arm up and head to the border.  NOW.  
  88. 2021 Thursday R: OTHER NEWS II- Representative Michael McCaul, R-TX 10th congressional district, said today that the Chi-Coms don’t fear our commander-in-chief, Joe Biden.  Meanwhile, a recent Zogby poll says that most Americans believe progressive ideas on the Cancel Culture, constant blubbering about race, gender, evil white people, and other issues are weakening the United States from within yet there are very few brave souls willing to combat it.  Friends, the world is in the fight of its lives, do we permit leftists and left-wing cultures to overrun and destroy conservative values, freedom from tyranny, and liberty for all or do we begin fighting back?  We say, fight back and destroy them.  Elsewhere, RINO Governor Brian Kemp of Georgia signed a sweeping new elections law into effect today, hoping to cover for what he did in the 2020 Presidential Election.  What difference does it make when you will sign a consent order allowing Stacey Abrams to steal the 2022 Mid-Term Elections?  Impeach and remove this POS.
  89. 2021 Thursday S: QUIP OF THE DAY FROM CHEF ITZI- Canada had better hope the U.S. does not journey down the path of socialism-communism because if it does, their nation could very well become our ‘Tibet:’ a place to send excess population as well as a place to exploit of its resources.  Mexico had better be careful, too, we might absorb them.

[i] A hodgepodge of foreign communists, many coming from the United States, France, Great Britain, and other European and Latin American countries.  Famed novelist Ernest Hemingway writes about one such individual portrayed by Gary Cooper in the film adaptation of his book, “For Whom the Bell Tolls.”

[ii] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.  Not sure if we will ever present the music of the Rising Sons or Fever Tree.

[iii] We are not sure when we will promote the music of Oakland’s Tower of Power, but you can be sure that we will do so when we begin promoting the music of funk-rock, horn-powered bands.

[iv] We will be presenting Elton John’s music at some point.

[v] 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 album, “Yesterday and Today,” appeared on Friday, 18-November-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[vi] We began promoting the music of the famed California surf-rock band, the Turtles, beginning on Tuesday, 03-September-2013 through Friday, 13-September-2013.  The album containing the hit, “Happy Together,” was presented on Friday, 06-September-2013.  Please seek it out and add it to your collection.

[vii] We promoted the music of Spooky Tooth, Mott the Hoople, and Widowmaker- among other interconnected bands beginning on Friday, 25-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We hope you will check out this collection of great rock music.  Even the worst albums among them beats the crap out of any bull crap music one hears today.

[viii] Critics blast Joe Biden for signing 37 executive orders while doing just one monotonous news conference.

[ix] Joe Biden echoed his crazy left-wing Democrats by decrying the Senate filibuster as a relic of the Jim Crow Era.  Joe, Democrats were the party that opposed civil rights, the party of slavery, Jim Crow, red-lining, lynching, the KKK, burning crosses, firehoses and police dogs and Bull Connor busting open heads with billy clubs and night sticks.  Democrats started the Civil War, fought the Civil War, and their northern brethren, the Copperheads defended them in Congress.  Shut up about racism and Jim Crow and racial hatred, the Democratic Party personifies race hatred and white supremacy.  Enough is enough.

[xix] Two parts to this story- Hunter lied on an FBI background check that he did NOT use drugs just as he and his brother Beau’s wife dumped a gun into a garbage can near a school and then went back to recover it and found that it had walked.  Neither crime is good. See this story- Hunter Biden gun incident at market in 2018 led to police investigation | Fox News– as well as this one- Hunter Biden may have committed felony by reportedly stating he’s not addicted to drugs on a gun background check (washingtonexaminer.com).

Colonel Pierre Langlais confronts Colonel Christian De Castries and demands a reordering of the command structure.  Castries is somewhat subdued, his chief-of-staff Lt.

Trump.  
  61. 2017 Friday: Thanks to schmucks such as House Speaker Paul Ryan, the Trump administration and their GOP allies in the House of Representatives are forced to pull their plan to overturn Obamacare and to replace it with a better plan.   Meanwhile, the House Intelligence Committee goes to war with itself over the bogus Trump-Russia Collusion scam, the very same engineered by the Democrats.  Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, and ranking member, the locoweed Adam Schiff, DS-CA 28th congressional district, are butting heads over information coming out that shows that the Obama administration SPIED on the then-Trump campaign.

  63. 2019 Sunday: On this Sunday, Attorney-General Bill Barr put out a brief on the 22-month Robert S. Mueller III investigation into Donald Trump, Trump campaign officials, and Vladimir Putin’s Russia by saying that ‘Mueller’s team had found no evidence of collusion between now-President Trump, members of his campaign, his friends and family and Russia nor was there any sign of obstruction.’  In effect, this clears the president and those around him other than those convicted of process crimes during the investigation.  The Democrats could not handle the outcome and rushed to the microphones braying like dogs for ALL the evidence and promise to continue the witch hunt into Mr. Trump.  The investigation began- many believe- in late 2015 or early 2016 and involved members of the Hillary Clinton team, Barack Obama Justice Department and FBI officials, as well as foreign operatives hired by members of the Obama team to set up candidate- and then- President Trump.  
  64. 2020 Tuesday: Democrats continue stalling in the U.S. Senate by holding up Wuhan Virus relief legislation by trying to stuff in Green New Deal, Pro-Death, union, identity politics, election fraud such as ballot harvesting in ALL 50 states, and more.  Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell continues rebuffing them in the hope that honest and legitimate legislation can occur.  Meanwhile, the world around mid-day acknowledges approximately 414,277 cases of COVID-19, with 38,819 new cases over the past 24 hours.  Global deaths are 18,557 what with 2,146 in the previous 24 hours.  In the United States, there are 51,542 cases of the Kung Flu with 8,328 new cases over the past 24 hours.  There is a total of 674 deaths, up by 95 over the previous 24 hours.  The Dow Jones Industrial Average closes UP by 11.3% or up 2,112.98 points, closing at 20,764.91.  Bravo. 
  65. 2020 Tuesday A: Bill Rieflin- drummer with King Crimson from 2013-15 / 2017 until today- died in his hometown of Seattle, Washington, on this date at age 59.  Cancer was the cause.
  66. 2021 Wednesday: JOE BIDEN NEWS– in anticipation of tomorrow’s FIRST NEWS CONFERENCE with the press, Joe Biden announces (or his earpiece does) that 40 reporters will be allowed into the briefing.  Next, Newsmax says that the mocking of Joe Biden by our foreign adversaries shows that they neither respect him nor fear him which is not good for the United States.   However, (and we don’t believe this one iota), the American Research Group shows an approval rating for Joe Biden of 60-percent and 33-percent disapproval rate.   (Note- Rasmussen puts Joe’s numbers at 48-percent approve and 50-percent disapprove of him).  Moving on, Joe Biden plans to mark Equal Pay Day as women are harder hit by COVID-19 than are their male counterparts.  Good for you, Joe, pandering like always.  Speaking of old Joe, earlier today he announced that “Kooky Kamala” Harris is now in charge of ‘solving the border crisis.’  (Note- continue building the wall and deport them all and that will help solve the ‘self-inflicted problem’ just as cutting off ALL government aid to illegals will.  Come on Methuselah, do your flipping job!).[vii]   Finally, when reporters asked Old Joe what he thought about North Korea’s recent missile tests, he said, ‘not much has changed.’
  67. 2021 Wednesday A: GOP NEWS– Utah Governor Spencer J. Cox, GOP, signed a measure that will put filters on porn sites within the state.  Excellent.  Meanwhile, GOP-lead states are fighting the good fight against Joe Biden’s increasingly insane policies, wish lists of liberal loony tunes spending and deprivation of the American people’s rights.  Elsewhere, Senator Chuck Grassley, R-IA, is pushing the Justice Department to continue the probe into perjury charges against the crackpot witnesses the Democrats trotted out to smear now-Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh.  Christine Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramirez, and Julie Swetnick should all be doing time in federal prisons for the bulls**t they pulled at his confirmation hearings back in 2018.  Get them, Chuck!  Finally, President Donald J. Trump is supporting Max Miller in his bid to unseat RINO Congressman Anthony Gonzalez in Ohio’s 16th congressional district.  Gonzalez voted to impeach President Trump if you recall.
  68. 2021 Wednesday B: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I–  The person who used to be known as Prince Harry, aka Mr. Meghan Markle, is taking a no-show gig as the ‘chief impact officer’ at a Silicon Valley startup, Betterup, that will help emotionally challenged individuals- like his wife and boss- overcome their issues.  Bravo, Harry, bravo.  Sort of like Hunter Biden working at Burisma.   Meanwhile, Senator Bernie Sanders says that he is ‘uncomfortable’ with the permanent ban placed on President Donald J. Trump by Twitter.  However, President Trump says he has ‘no plans to return to Twitter,’ seeing as how he is in the midst of creating his own untouchable social media platform.   Next, the New York Justice Department says the impeachment probe into Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo could continue for months.  So, charge him with the homicides of 15,000-20,000 people and get him out of office.  NOW.
  69. 2021 Wednesday C: FOREIGN/OVERSEAS NEWS–  Vladimir Putin’s chef- businessman Yevgeny Prigozhin- has written to the Federal Bureau of Investigation demanding he be removed from a most-wanted list.  The FBI put a bounty of $250,000 atop his head last month for his apprehension and extradition to the United States over bogus charges he somehow meddled in the 2016 Presidential Election on behalf of then-candidate Donald J. Trump.  He says the FBI must stop offering the reward as it violates several principles under human rights laws.  That’s Joe Biden for you, looking for fall guys he can blame for his own shortcomings such as Hunter Biden being in the hip pockets of both the Ukraine and China.  Meanwhile, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declares victory in the recent elections, but the majority is still unclear.   Elsewhere, a massive container ship in the Suez Canal has run aground due to high winds and is blocking passage to other ships.
  70. 2021 Wednesday D: SECOND AMENDMENT/GUNS NEWS– Representative Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district, says the Dems are ‘playing politics with our lives’ over their renewed drive to strip the American people of their guns.  (Note- we’d like to see them try.  First, there are going to be SO-O-O MANY gun thefts in this country, the cops will be tied up seeking them while secondly, it’s like what former NRA boss Charlton Heston used to say: ‘you can have my guns when you pry them out of my cold dead fingers.  Joe- NO one is going to surrender their guns, NO one.  Come and get them.  Chef Alvin).  Still, after the POS Syrian Muslim refugee Ahmad Al-Aliwi Alissa[viii] killed 10 WHITE people at the King Soopers Grocery Store in Boulder, Colorado, earlier this week, the Dems began to go bat-crap-crazy in pushing their gun-grabbing bills.   Joe Biden says he doesn’t have to ‘wait for Congress’ to begin stripping guns.  Go for it, Joe.
  71. 2021 Wednesday E: SECOND AMENDMENT/GUN NEWS II– Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer[ix] swears on his mother’s soul that the two firearms bills sent to him from the House of Representatives will receive swift attention.  “Kooky Kamala” Harris is urging swift hearing and passage of these gun-grabbing bills.  Interesting note- John Bachman of Newsmax says that the ‘Democrats are hypocrites.  They claim to hate guns, yet they spread guns all over the world’ selling them to thugs, criminals, terrorists, murderers, and other human trash.  He reminded his viewers of the Obama era “Fast and Furious” program that put military grade weapons into the hands of Mexican narcoterrorists.  
  72. 2021 Wednesday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– ‘The (Communist) Squad in Congress now claims that NOT supporting statehood for Washington, D.C., is RACIST.  The federal district was NEVER intended to be a state, girls, it was pulled together from several states so that NO single state would claim rights to sole ownership of the federal government.  No, just because lots of black folks live there does not make it ‘racist.’  Everyone living in the District of Columbia knows the score.  Shut the f**k up.  Next, Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell says that H.R. 1 is a bald political power grab.  Mitch- you should have supported President Donald J. Trump when you had the opportunity.  Now, shut the hell up.  Finally, the Wisconsin State Assembly authorizes an investigation into election fraud in the 2020 Presidential Election.
  73. 2021 Wednesday G: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– “Coincidence of the Day”- last week, Dr. Moncef Slaoui said that ‘President Donald J. Trump bears 90-percent of getting the COVID-19 vaccine programs underway what with Operation Warp Speed and Joe Biden just 10-percent.  Today, GlaxoSmithKline terminated Dr. Slaoui for purported sexual harassment allegations against him.  Wow.  Is this not amazing?  Cancel Culture strikes yet again.  Defend Trump and you lose your job.  Well, we defend Trump- WTF are YOU going to do to US?   Next, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says AstraZeneca soon to release an updated report on its coronavirus vaccines.   Meanwhile, Caribbean nations are begging the Biden administration NOT to be stingy with the coronavirus vaccines, to please, remember the countries on the U.S.’ third border.  (Note- when these countries do something about the horrendous foodborne illness visitors typically acquire upon eating their first meals there, we will send you vaccine.  Otherwise, STFU).  Finally, five years after his untimely death, famed rock star Prince’s ashes will go on public display.
  74. 2021 Wednesday H: ODDBALL AND HUMOROUS NEWS OF THE DAY– By a final vote of 52-48 (with RINO Senators Lisa Murkowski, RINO-AK, and Susan Collins, RINO-ME, confirmed the nomination of tranny (woof!) former Pennsylvania Health Secretary Rachel Levine to become the next assistant secretary of health.  Okie dokie.  Aren’t we proud as a nation!  Next, a chick with a dick,[x] Kataluna Enriquez has been crowned Miss Silver State USA, one step away from competing in the Miss Nevada USA pageant.  In yet another slap to the faces of women and girls, the tranny beat out numerous biological females to become the first beauty pageant winner with a dong swinging down under.  Folks, what the hell is going on?  Almost makes one wish the Chinese would take the country over.  Oh, speaking about ‘affronts’ to women, “Kooky Kamala” Harris and former President William Jefferson “Bill” Clinton are teaming up on a program with which to empower women.  Does anyone see the irony in this? [xi] (They are already receiving massive blowback for this bulls**t symposium).
  75. 2021 Wednesday I: U.S. BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE– Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, swears to ‘shut the Senate down’ if the Biden administration denies him access to the southern border.  Senator Marsha Blackburn was visiting the border today and she said, ‘what a mess.’  Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador says that ‘Joe Biden bears full responsibility for the ongoing border catastrophe.’  Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says that ‘Joe Biden’s rhetoric and his first day actions are responsible for the border catastrophe.’   Speaking of this crisis, this holocaust, Joe Biden has yet to name a nominee to head the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol.   Meanwhile, Congressman Henry Cuellar, D-TX 28th congressional district, says that the ‘migrants must be made known as to what awaits them on this side of the border.’  The border states must find a way with which they can finish the wall on their territory if they cannot do it on federal land.  Steve Bannon, where the hell are YOU and YOUR charity to fund border wall construction?
  76. 2021 Wednesday J: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 124,378,693 confirmed cases, +453,805, 2,736,980  confirmed deaths, +9,340, and 70,573,246 confirmed recoveries, +252,735.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,161,747 confirmed cases, up 57,678 from yesterday’s reporting, 549,411 confirmed deaths, UP 798, and 117,371,050 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. 
  77. 2021 Wednesday K: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 220,944 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another three-and-a-half-weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  
  78. 2021 Wednesday L: 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: 3,648,021 confirmed cases, 57,909 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,950 confirmed cases, 454 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 359,290 confirmed cases, 5,249 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- the commonwealth of the American Samoa: currently, they have 3 confirmed cases, 0 confirmed deaths, and 3 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 829,689 confirmed cases, 6,122 confirmed deaths, and 808,869 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Pakistan, home of a large chapter of the Taliban: 637,042 cases of the virus, 13,965 confirmed deaths and 586,228 confirmed recoveries.  
  79. 2021 Wednesday M: STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 32,420.06, DOWN 3.09 points (-0.01%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,961.89, DOWN 265.81 points (-2.01%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,889.14, DOWN 21.38 points (-0.55%).  The price of GOLD is $1,733.10 per troy oz., -0.10 (-0.01%) while the price of SILVER is $25.12 per troy ounce, -0.12 (-0.46%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,172.20 per troy oz, -8.00 (-0.68%) while the price of COPPER is $4.03 per pound, -0.04 (-0.92%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,640.10 per troy oz, +22.80 (+0.87%). The price of RHODIUM is $29,800.00 per troy oz., +400.00 (+1.36%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $60.70 per barrel, -0.48 (-0.78%)  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.52 Chinese yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.90.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000019.   In Barbadian dollar, one greenback equals 2.00. 
  80. 2021 Wednesday N: 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 $3.882 per gallon, $3.622 in Hawaii, and $3.324 in Washington state.    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,089,823,477,532 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.  Cloward and Piven running amok.  The country is going to crumble into nothingness thanks to the Democrats and their trillion-dollar bills.  Donald Trump- time for you to return to office.
  81. 2021 Wednesday O: Stay tuned for tonight’s Super Lotto and Powerball drawings.  First, here are the results for the Super Lotto Drawing #3545 with a pot of $31 million on the line: 10, 11, 13, 32, 38, and Mega 17.  Out of 111,151 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $19,815 apiece. Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #831 with a $220 million pot on the line: 04, 09, 17, 27, 38, and Power 18.   Out of 95,606 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $25,606. 
  82. 2021 Wednesday P: END OF THE NIGHT NEWS I– Tesla now says that its customers can buy their electric vehicles with Bitcoin.  Having bought $1.5 billion in Bitcoin several months back, any cars bought with Bitcoin will remain in their Bitcoin account- they are not going to convert it into dollars.  Next, the Joint Chiefs of Staff spokesperson said that yes, indeed, North Korea did fire at least one projectile into the East China Sea.  That’s Kim for you- NO respect for Joe Biden.  Meanwhile, as 14 states sue the Biden administration for its almost immediate crackdown on all energy projects on federal lands, the U.S. Department of the Interior announces that it’s going to review all existing and applications for fossil fuel drilling on federal lands.  With a Norwegian-Native American in charge, Debra Haaland, you know there won’t be any new drilling and many existing oil and natural gas leases will be shut down.  Windmills and solar farms.  
  83. 2021 Wednesday Q: END OF THE NIGHT NEWS II– Virginia Governor Ralph “Black Face” Northam signs a bill that will end capital punishment in the state.  Since its inception as a British colony, there have been 1,400 executions.  Since the U.S. Supreme Court reinstated the death penalty in 1976, there have been 113 executions which ranks the Old Dominion State second only to the Lone Star State in the number of executions carried out.  Still, Governor “Black Face” says the death penalty should be available for especially heinous crimes but throughout history, the death penalty has fallen mostly on minorities, the mentally ill, and the poor.  Elsewhere, Intel is going to build two chip-manufacturing plants in Arizona, so says CEO Pat Gelsinger.  Not only will it produce chips for its own purposes, but it will also serve as a ‘foundry,’ which means it will build microchips for other companies.  The company will qualify for about $90 million in tax credits when construction is completed, and it will also provide at least 3,000 high-paying jobs.  Even better, it will become an alternative source for chip manufacturing so if Asia craps out or withholds chips from Western nations, problem solved.  
  84. 2021 Wednesday R: END OF THE NIGHT NEWS III– U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken visited NATO headquarters in Brussels, Belgium, today and informed our allies that ‘America was back’ and that we would not put our ‘allies in a position of ‘us or them,’ meaning- we guess- that if the Germans want to buy natural gas from the Russians, the nation against whom the victorious Western allies created the North Atlantic Treaty Organization to defend against- then so be it.  It is what it is.  Meanwhile, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg invited the Russians to return to having an observatory role in the organization.  Secretary Blinken wants the organization to remain strong against both Russian and Chinese hegemony and that if the Chi-Coms cause problems for one country, they cause them for all countries within the group.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, they blasted the U.S. today for everything from being a racist nation to its out-of-control spending.  Ouch.
  85. 2022 Thursday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The reformed Band released their next album, “High on the Hog,” on February 27, 1996.  Once again, the group performed numerous covers but what the heck- they performed them with verve, class, and a great deal of sass.  The Band features Rick Danko (guitars, bass, vocals), Levon Helm (drums, bass, vocals, and mandolins), Garth Hudson (keyboards, accordions, saxophones, even vocals), Richard Manuel (piano on one track), Jim Weider (guitars/vocals), Rick Bell (keyboards/accordions/vocals), Randy Ciarlante (vocals/drums/percussion), along with guest spots by loads of other talented and well-known musicians, at least 15-20 of them.  While it’s challenging not to have major songwriter and guitarist Robbie Robertson in the fold, it is what it is.  We hope you will seek this album out as it is the first of a trio of new works to come.  We think you will enjoy it as much as we do.

[i] We hope to promote the music of the Bee Gees within the next 3-4 years.

[ii] We promoted the music of Spooky Tooth, Mott the Hoople, and Widowmaker- among other interconnected bands beginning on Friday, 25-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We hope you will check out this collection of great rock music.  Even the worst albums among them beats the crap out of any bull crap music one hears today.

[iii] We began presenting the music of the Animals, of Eric Burdon and the Animals, of Eric Burdon, Eric Burdon and War, and War beginning on Monday, 08-June-2015 and the presentation ran through Sunday, 02-August-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider making them a part of your listening pleasure

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

[v]When the time will be right for the presentation of Elvis Presley is unknown but if we are still going strong in the 2030s, we expect to do so.  Please, stay tuned.

[vi] We shared the music of the Rolling Stones (and the group’s individual members) beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members solo projects.

[vii] Feeble Old Joe said that he would take the news media with him when he went to do a tour of the southern border.  Now that he has appointed “Kooky Kamala” Harris to do ‘something’ about the border, there no longer is a need to take the media there to see what the hell is occurring down there.

[viii] Speaking of this piece of desert dirt, amazing how all the left-wing news agencies and pundits stopped with the shooter being a WHITE man and then NOT reporting his name so they can suck up to their beloved Muslims.  We have heard unverified reports of the scumbag yelling “Allah Akbar” while he walked up to and then shot his victims at close range.  What if one of the victims had a gun and put a round into the shooter’s face?  That would be awesome.  He had rants all over Facebook blasting those whom he believed were ‘racist against Islam’ and even worse, the vaunted FBI had Mr. Alissa on a ‘watch list.’  Lot of good FBI watchlists are, huh?  Still, losers such as Ilhan Omar, DS-MN 5th congressional district, Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, DS-MI 13th congressional district, and ‘Baldy,’ Ayanna Pressley, DS-MA 7th congressional district all zipped their generally flapping lips so as not to have to admit the scumbag Alissa was one of theirs.

[ix] “Prune Face” would be a good alternative name for Cryin’ Chuck seeing as how we have labeled House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi as such.  Dick Tracy had some cool villains.

[x] If you want to see ‘chicks with dicks,’ come to Los Angeles, California, and take a trip down the Sunset Strip.

[xi] “Kooky Kamala” slept her way to the top beginning with powerful Golden State Democrat Willie Brown and Bill, well, everyone knows about Bill.  We don’t have to list all the transgressions against women this guy committed and who can forget that he flew on Jeffrey Epstein’s private plane, what was it- 19 times?  Yikes.

41. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 2022

  62. 2016 Wednesday: Blaming an El Nino-caused drought, the Venezuelan government orders 100 malls to close early so as to conserve electricity.  The reason the nation has no electricity is because of the sham of socialism.  Meanwhile, Boko Haram continues running amok in West Africa.  In Nigeria, two female suicide bombers attack a refugee camp killing at least 58 people while in Cameroon, bombers there kill at least six people and wound another 30.  All in the name of the ‘religion of peace’ as President George W.

  67. 2020 Monday: The great leader, Xi Jinping, slaps on a face mask and visits a hospital in Beijing visiting sick people.  He demands ‘more decisive measures’ to combat the virus he claims came out of the Wuhan wet market when in fact, it really came out of the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  At the time of this writing, we are unclear as to whether the growing pandemic was created with purpose in the lab or is yet another freak of nature disease to emanate in communist China and then infects the rest of the world.   Meanwhile, Beijing’s sock puppet, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus- the head of the World Health Organization- says that ‘foreign cases of COVID-19 could be the tip of the iceberg.’  What did YOU know and WHEN did YOU know it?
  68. 2021 Wednesday:  First, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, blasts the World Health Organization for doing what everyone expected it would do, namely, cover up for their masters in the Chinese Communist Party.  Dr. Tedros is a bought-and-paid-for, Third World ‘medical’ hack.  Speaking of which, a recent poll says that ‘one-third of Americans are skeptical of the Wuhan Virus vaccine.’  We sure the hell are.  Meanwhile, the FDA grants Eli Lilly the go ahead to begin using its combo Chi-Vi vaccine/antibody treatment in the war against the Chi-Com Virus running amok in the world.  Speaking of Chi-Coms, Connecticut police are investigating the shooting death of graduate student 26-year-old Kevin Jiang whose lifeless bullet-ridden corpse was discovered over the weekend.  
  69. 2021 Wednesday A: Elsewhere, Joe Biden’s plan to re-engage in the United Nations ‘Human Rights’ Commission is seen as little more than a hollow gesture by the fading-fast 46th president.  Meanwhile, Alabama has a bill pending that would prohibit hormone drug treatments for tranny kids.  We always say, send these kids to qualified psychiatrists so they can get their heads on straight instead of falling prey to liberal insanity.  Finally, the CDC endorses ‘double-masking’ (these people are obviously invested in companies manufacturing PPE); however, we recall when Dr. Tony Fauci said, ‘masks don’t work’ just as we recall him suggesting ‘everyone might have to wear goggles,’ just as we remember him telling an inquisitive reporter that it’s fine to meet people on Grindr and Tinder for casual sex hook-ups.  WTF, Dr. Fauci?
  70. 2021 Wednesday B: Stephen King is putting up $6.5 million to help young authors get published.  Next, former Colorado Republican Senator Cory Gardner is going to head a new GOP Super PAC with which to help the party win back the House and Senate in 2022 and beyond.   Meanwhile, Congressman Ed Buck calls out the Democrats for resisting a proposal with which ALL members of Congress would recite the Pledge of Allegiance before every panel meeting.  Of course, the Democrats won’t allow this being the Anti-American scumbags that they are.  Speaking of anti-Americanism, Joe Biden’s immigration policies (or lack of) are causing mayhem along the southern border as tens of thousands of illegal aliens try to storm into the country.  We encourage the disconnected president to begin laying in minefields to stop the invasion in its tracks.   Elsewhere, the U.S. Senate sets February 22-23 as the date for hearings for Joe Biden’s attorney general nominee, Merrick Garland.
  71. 2021 Wednesday C: NASA awards SpaceX a $332 million contract to build the infrastructure for a return to the lunar surface.  In other news, Fox News bozo Chris Wallace says, ‘the impeachment managers are really laying out a compelling case in the trial of former President Donald J. Trump.’  And you wonder why people NO longer watch Fox News.  Speaking of the ‘impeachment trial,’ the Dems are once again harnessing a major team of losers to prosecute the case against Donald Trump which is why we are supporting the National Republican Congressional Committee’s bid to beat 47 Democrats so as to reclaim the House in 2022.  Everyone knows Jaime Raskin is a moron as is Teddy Lieu, David Cicilline, and Joaquin Castro, among others.  Castro was babbling on about Trump’s claims of a ‘stolen election’ noting no Democrat would ever do that when we know defeated Anthony Brindisi in New York 22 was crying about Dominion Voting Systems fraud in his loss to Claudia Tenney.  Wah, wah, wah!
  72. 2021 Wednesday D: The CEO of Microsoft says that BIG TECH requires clearer laws as to what can and cannot be said online meaning ‘WHAT CAN WE CENSOR WITHOUT REPERCUSSIONS?’  Elsewhere, lowlife rocker Bruce Springsteen faces drunken driving charges in the Garden State.  Poor Bruce.  Elsewhere, right on time, a Georgia county launches a probe into President Donald J. Trump’s attempted election theft in the Peach State.  Wow.  Meanwhile, a judge denies Ghislaine Maxwell’s attorneys bid to keep an excerpt from a 2016 deposition sealed.   Next, officials in San Francisco and around the Bay Area are trying to figure out where a massive oil spill in the Bay originated.   Finally, people are shocked that Republican Senator Bill Cassidy of Louisiana voted with the Democrats and five other RINOs to move the impeachment trial against President Trump forward yesterday.  He’s a goner.  And Democrats should remember this: what goes around can come around and we expect to see Barack Hussein Obama impeached and his wife prevented from ever seeking office…
  73. 2021 Wednesday E: After Mark Cuban- owner of the NBA franchise the Dallas Mavericks- said that he would NO longer play the National Anthem prior to games in the country that made this scurrilous c**ksucker wealthy, the NBA said, “Yes you will.”  All teams will play the anthem before every game which is longstanding league policy.  Meanwhile, we learn that another leftwing POS- this one Kamala Harris- joked about killing both President Donald J. Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.  Newt Gingrich says the Democrats are making the case for Donald Trump in this exceedingly boring second impeachment which is good because people are growing angrier with these scumbag Democrats by the day. 
  74. 2021 Wednesday F: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 107,166,785 confirmed cases, +523,266, 2,348,421, confirmed deaths, +17,582, and 59,908,386 confirmed recoveries, +358,991.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 27,485,502 confirmed cases, up 103,724 from yesterday’s reporting, 474,034 confirmed deaths, UP 3,374, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP- UNKNOWN- same number as the last two week’s number- WTF.  NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 144,639 CHI-VI DEATHS.  Joe, you said you had a plan- where the f**k is it?  In Beijing?  YOU are NOT our president, sir.
  75. 2021 Wednesday G: 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: 3,441,427 confirmed cases, 44,995 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,531 confirmed cases, 418 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 327,397 confirmed cases, 4,635 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Arizona: currently, they have 789,245 confirmed cases, 14,462 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 703,719 confirmed cases, 5,216 confirmed deaths, and 628,004 confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other country, shall we?  Spain: 3,023,601 confirmed cases, 63,704 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.

  77. 2021 Wednesday I: Rush Limbaugh’s staffers encourage his hundreds of millions of fans across the world to pray for a remission of his cancer and for a swift recovery.  All of us are praying for your health, Rush.  God be with you.  Next, Donald Trump Jr. tells Newsmax TV that the ‘Dems are trying to scare ‘outsiders’ away from Washington, D.C., and politics.’  Moving on, Roger Stone told Newsmax that CNN’s latest report is ‘Russian Witch Hunt 2.0.’  Elsewhere, Michigan Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey, GOP, stands by his statement that the Capitol Hill Riots- in which Antifa and Black Lives Matter led the way with Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s blessings- allegedly- were a hoax to blame Trump supporters.  We know what he’s saying- it was pre-planned and pre-engineered so as to coincide with the President’s speech on January 6 from the White House.  Evidence continues pointing in this direction which is WHY the Dems screech louder that what Republicans say are ALL LIES!  When the truth comes out, we know exactly where it’s going to lead…
  78. 2021 Wednesday J: As the Democrats got the impeachment three-ring circus underway, most Republican senators were once again, indifferent and/or immune to all the blubbering, crying, sniveling, snot-dripping BS the Dems spent all day making tens of millions of Americans sick.  It is an embarrassing freak show what with Rhode Island Congressman David Cicilline talking about an “armed insurrection.’  Look, former Mafia mouthpiece, there were no weapons in the hands of the left-wing rioters.   Congressman Matt Gaetz, R-FL, said the “Dems’ tears are not enough to sway anyone.’  Good for you, congressman.  Elsewhere, the CDC announces that those who are completely vaccinated against the Beijing Bat Bug do not need to quarantine.  Next, Joe Biden’s budget deficit through January is a whopping $735.7 billion.   Finally, former ICE bigwig Tom Homan says that ‘Joe Biden has made the entire nation into one big sanctuary nation.’  We’re telling you; people are going to push back against this tidal wave of illegals.
  79. 2021 Wednesday K: The Chi-Coms have got a Chi-Com lander in the atmosphere on Mars.  In a couple of months, the Chi-Coms will attempt to get it to the surface of the Red Planet where we hope it will blow up- watch it take COVID-19 to Mars!  Will they blame it on the Americans?  Meanwhile, the United Arab Emirates have a similar robotic craft arriving on scene while the U.S. has another arriving soon.   Elsewhere, Joe Biden visited the Pentagon today to confer with Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin where they plotted strategy to save the planet from climate change, the Chi-Vi, and of course, RIGHT WING EXTREMISM.  Left-wing extremism, A-Okay.   Finally, the Biden administration has suspended indefinitely the ‘forced transfer’ of TikTok- the Chi-Com intelligence gathering social media ap to Walmart and Oracle in yet another tip-of-the-hat to Beijing.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

It is not like Fotheringay was around for a long time, yet, since Sandy Denny was in the guiding light behind the group, they recorded loads of music.  Sadly, Sandy died young and hubby Trevor Lucas followed a couple of decades later.  Still, record companies keep music stuffed away in the vaults so they decided, let’s combine everything together, add the unreleased material and boom-bam, we have a final (or so we might think) offering entitled, “Nothing More- the Collected Fotheringay,” which came out on March 27, 2015.  It is difficult to locate this collection but there’s always Discogs, AllMusic, eBay, and perhaps even overseas sites such as Amazon UK.  Seek it out and you will be glad you did should you locate it because Sandy had an angelic voice, and her songwriting skills were mesmerizing.  You will be glad you found this one if you do because it is delightful.

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

Thursday, February 10, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

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


[i] We presented the music of the Flying Burrito Brothers beginning Sunday, 23-February-2014 and concluded our presentation on Thursday, 06-March-2014.

[ii] We began promoting the music of not only Traffic but also the Spencer Davis Group, Steve Winwood, Chris Wood, Jim Capaldi, and Dave Mason.  The presentation commenced on Monday, 30-November-2015 through Sunday, 20-March-2016.  This offering also included Blind Faith.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.

[iii] We will be presenting Elton John’s music at some point within the next five years.  Please stay tuned for the day when we do.

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

[v] Could it be that Obama set this government agency up so it could engineer the ‘Russia collusion scam’ less than a year later.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

58. 2021 Friday A: And so, it begins: Federal prosecutors seek Donald Trump Jr. for ‘questioning.’ Questioning for what, pray tell? Meanwhile, a Trump deputy in the White House is reassuring staffers in the era of Cancel Culture that they will be ‘okay,’ even as Harvard is on the edge of bowing to its students and stripping Kayleigh McEnany of her advanced law degree.

  54. 2018 Monday: Protests marking the seventh anniversary of the revolution in Tunis, Tunisia, turn violent as people begin protesting the current government.  Elsewhere, the Turkish government threatens to take actions against the U.S.-backed Syrian Border Security Force while the government of Bashar al-Assad threatens to extinguish all U.S. operations within his crappy country.  Neither does anything.  Meanwhile, as a former CIA officer tries to fly out of New York, authorities swoop in and arrest the POS Jerry Chun Shing-Lee on charges of espionage for- you guessed it- communist China.  After he left the Central Intelligence Agency, he retained all manner of info in notebooks and handed it over to his handlers.

  57. 2021 Friday: A recent poll says that 9 out of 10 Americans oppose the Capitol Hill riots of January 6, the ones in which, Antifa infiltrated its commandoes amongst supporters of the 45th president to discredit them, in much the same way they have since the Charlottesville clashes between Antifa and white supremacists, BOTH groups we believe were set in motion by ONE entity: the Chi-Coms via their stooges in the Democratic Party.   Meanwhile, drooling House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi announces she is appointing retired U.S. Army General Russell Honoré- of Hurricane Katrina fame- to lead a task force to investigate how to transform the Capitol Building from a ‘soft target’ into a ‘hard one.’  One of the things she can do is not to tell Capitol Hill police officers to stand aside and motion Antifa thugs inside.  Furthermore, Madam Speaker cannot say when the second impeachment trial for President Trump will begin.  Next, lawmakers author a bi-partisan bill to honor slain Capitol Hill police officer Brian Sicknick.  God bless him.  
  58. 2021 Friday A: And so, it begins: Federal prosecutors seek Donald Trump Jr. for ‘questioning.’   Questioning for what, pray tell?  Meanwhile, a Trump deputy in the White House is reassuring staffers in the era of Cancel Culture that they will be ‘okay,’ even as Harvard is on the edge of bowing to its students and stripping Kayleigh McEnany of her advanced law degree.  Next, Trump campaign lawyer Jenna Ellis tells Newsmax TV that ‘this impeachment is no different’ and that it’s an ‘abuse of the U.S. Constitution.’  Meanwhile, Ric Grenell tells Newsmax TV that the ‘D.C. media has switched from the news to advocacy for all left-wing causes.’  Rudy Giuliani believes it’s all a scheme to prevent #45 from running for office again.  Finally, also to Newsmax TV, Dick Morris- famed political strategist and consultant- says that ‘impeachment and the 25th Amendment are watering down the presidency.’  NO- the AICPENDBLOG.COM believes the Democrats and the RINOS are trying to replace the presidency with a parliamentary system in which the party in power chooses who will be the figurehead.
  59. 2021 Friday B: New York State news- a new bill in Albany would make it illegal for New Yorkers to own or buy body armor.  Why?  Elsewhere in New York City, we now learn that thanks to the criminal mismanagement by Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo and addle-brained NYC Mayor Bill Di Blasio, more than 372,000 private businesses have been destroyed in the Big Apple, never to return, many of them in professional foodservice and hospitality. 
  60. 2021 Friday C: Due to ‘security threats’ in Washington, D.C., the Inauguration Day rehearsal for ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden has been pushed back to Monday. We learn that J-Lo and Lady Gaga are going to be among the left-wing performers celebrating the ‘victory’ of the incoming senile 46th ‘president.’  Next, according to Rush Limbaugh, the feds are rushing 25,000 troops into Washington, D.C. to prevent against the expected (Antifa-caused) violence on Wednesday, January 20.  (According to the talk show mega-giant, this is more troops than are currently station in BOTH Iraq and Afghanistan).  Speaking of the riots, the FBI reports that the Capitol Hill mobs planned to assassinate leaders.  Again, this sounds like Antifa and BLM human garbage, not Trump supporters.  Meanwhile, Mr. Biden chooses former FDA Chief David Kessler to head Operation Warp Speed. 
  61. 2021 Friday D: In a peculiar move, Oklahoma Senator James Lankford, a Republican, apologizes to black Tulsans for having opposed the certification of “President-elect Pro-China Joe” Biden.  Why?  What was racist about questioning the certification?  Dimwit. Next, the media appears to have twisted the remarks of Senator Tommy Tuberville, R-Alabama, in suggesting a delay on Biden’s certification.   
  62. 2021 Friday E: Elsewhere, a new poll shows that a vast majority of Republicans and swing state voters favor hiring U.S. workers before hiring illegal aliens.  Next, the Wyoming Republican Party is unhappy with Congresswoman Liz Cheney, one of their own, who was among the 10 RINO Republicans to vote for the SECOND IMPEACHMENT OF PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP.  (Note- those 10 representatives and four of their counterparts in the U.S. Senate- Lisa Murkowski, RINO-Alaska, Ben Sasse, RINO-Nebraska, Pat Toomey, RINO-Pennsylvania, and Mitt Romney, RINO-Utah, we believe will make it onto the list of nominees for the Fourth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award to be awarded in January 2022).
  63. 2021 Friday F: Fossilized ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden announces his COVID-19/Stimulus Plan: first, $20 billion for a national vaccination program.  Second, $50 billion for expanded testing, treatment, and tracing programs.  Third, $2,000 stimulus checks for all illegal aliens and American citizens.  Fourth and final, $15 minimum wage for federal entry level jobs.  Economist Stephen Moore says that the final peg of Beijing Joe’s stimulus plan will cost ‘4 million additional American jobs.’  WTF?  Next, the U.S. Secret Service is telling its officers in the run-up to Inauguration Day to remain ‘professional’ and ‘non-partisan.’  Meanwhile, the IRS announces it’s behind on 7 million tax returns from last year all because of COVID-19.
  64. 2021 Friday G: Russia cites the U.S. withdrawal from the Open Skies Treaty as its reason for leaving the agreement.  In Great Britain, it would appear that Mask Sharia is on the way there as the British government says, ‘people may have to wear masks forever.’  Wow.  Coming soon to a country near you?  Elsewhere, Dunkin’ Donuts has created a new biodegradable straw.  Congratulations.  Next, a Mickey Mantle baseball card sold for $5.2 million setting an all-time record.  Elsewhere, Joanne Roberts, widow of Mr. Rogers, dies at age 92.  Meanwhile, President Trump plans to hold an event as outgoing president on Inauguration Day at same time senile Old Joe is scheduled to place his quivering hand atop a Bible. 
  65. 2021 Friday H: Here are the numbers for the COVID-19 global pandemic, the planet first: 93,275,676 confirmed cases, +424,993, 2,000,905, confirmed deaths, +12,615, and 55,500,681 confirmed recoveries, +271,674.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 23,489,378 confirmed cases, up 108,386 from yesterday’s reporting, 390,378 confirmed deaths, UP 1,434, and 10,262,463 confirmed recoveries, UP 28,136.
  66. 2021 Friday I: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 2,898,041 confirmed cases, 32,291 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases, 318 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 288,127 confirmed cases, 3,949 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Idaho: currently, they have 153,506 confirmed cases, 1,593 confirmed deaths, and 69,460 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 535,049 confirmed cases, 3,910 confirmed deaths, and 447,076 confirmed recoveries.   
  67. 2021 Friday J:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,814.26, DOWN 177.26 points (-0.57%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,998.50, DOWN 114.14 points (-0.87%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,768.25, DOWN 27.29 points (-0.72%).  The price of GOLD is $1,827.70 per troy oz., -2.20 (-0.12%) while the price of SILVER is $24.83 per troy ounce, -0.036 (-0.14%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,078.70 per troy oz, -11.20 (-1.03%) while the price of COPPER is $3.50 per pound, -0.001 (-0.03%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,395.10 per troy oz, -28.20 (-1.16%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.04 per barrel, -0.32 (-0.61%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.48 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Hong Kong dollars equals 7.75.  In other economic news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue says the government ‘declared martial law by imposing the harsh COVID-19 lockdowns on the American people.’  How right you are, sir!
  68. 2021 Friday K: Senator Lindsey Graham, RINO-SC, says that the Mueller probe into Trump-Russia collusion- Crossfire Hurricane- was ‘the most incompetent’ and ‘most corrupt’ investigation ever conducted by the FBI and the Department of Justice.  Meanwhile, Vice President Mike Pence speaks with Vice President-elect “Kooky Kamala” Harris on the phone.  The incoming VP says she hopes for a ‘peaceful transition of power.’  Next, NY prosecutors drag former Trump attorney Michael Cohen in to answer questions about the 45th president’s finances.    Speaking of losers like Michael Cohen, Lt. Gov. Duncan of the Peach State snivels to reporters that the ‘Georgia statehouse is absolutely less safe now because of Donald Trump.’  Lt. Gov. Duncan- you should not have worked to throw the election to “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his Chi-Com masters who now are YOUR masters.
  69. 2021 Friday L: Currently, the feds are investigating 37 people for their part in the deaths that occurred during the Capitol Hill Riots of January 6.  Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, she whose pendulous breasts droop down to her waist, says, ‘there will be prosecutions for ALL House members who aided the (Antifa/Black Lives Matter) ‘Trump mob’ in storming the building.  We guess this means that YOU, Madam Speaker, will stand at the head of the line seeing as how YOU and ONLY YOU are in charge of the Capitol Hill PD.  Steven Sund, outgoing Capitol Hill police chief begged for help on at least SIX occasions with no help coming which means YOU stopped help from coming which means BLOOD is on YOUR HANDS.  We await YOUR prosecution! 
  70. 2021 Friday M: President Donald J. Trump orders U.S. Military Command for the Middle East to incorporate Israel into its organization so as to hasten Arab-Israeli military cooperation in defending against the Iranian scum.   Meanwhile, Apple CEO Tim Cook says that ‘Parler might make it back online provided they do something about moderating (censoring) content.  Elsewhere, the National Rifle Association files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy protections.  Finally, Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas rips ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden for his plagiarizing yet again someone else’s work- the COVID-19 Relief Bill. 
  71. 2021 Friday N: Elsewhere, the Atlanta Falcons hire Tennessee Titans OC Arthur Smith as their next head coach.   Note- we would love to see Matt Ryan make it to another super bowl.    Speaking of the NFL, two games tomorrow in the Divisional Round- L.A. Rams @ Green Bay Packers at 1:35 P.M. and Baltimore
    Ravens @ the Buffalo Bills @ 5:15 P.M.  Then on Sunday, we have two more games- Cleveland Browns @ Kansas City Chiefs @ 12:05 P.M. and Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ New Orleans Saints @ 3:40 P.M.
  72. 2021 Friday O: Here are the results for tonight’s massive Mega Millions Draw #1625 with a pot of around $725 million at stake: 03, 11, 12, 38, 43, and Mega 15.  Out of 643,493 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers BUT NO MEGA for a prize of $1,225,193.  Meanwhile, Alex Azar, Health and Human Services secretary offers his resignation, citing the Capitol Hill Riots as his reason for leaving the administration.   Elsewhere, we learn today that Bill Gates of Microsoft fame is the largest owner of private farmland in the United States with 242,000 acres.  Finally, in the waning days of the Trump administration, an asteroid the size of the Empire State Building, about 4.4 million miles from the Earth which is about 18 times the average distance between our planet and the moon.
  73. 2021 Friday P: The government of Morocco awards President Donald J. Trump the Order of Mohammad, the nation’s highest decoration, for his work in creating a framework of peace for Arab nations and Israel.  The ceremony occurred at the White House in a private ceremony.  Congratulations, Mr. President.  Let’s see if your successor keeps the framework of the Abraham Accords in place or tosses them on the rubbish heap and returns to brown-nosing the Palestinians.  Elsewhere, One America News reports growing evidence that foreign nations such as communist China interfered in our elections, NOT just in the 2020 Presidential Election but also in several state elections.  WHY aren’t the liberals braying about ‘ELECTION INTERFERENCE?’  Because we believe Beijing and their bought-and-paid-for stooges in the Democratic Party and among the RINO wing of the GOP conspired with them to deny President Trump his much-deserved second term.   Meanwhile, Norway reports 11 deaths connected to the vaccine for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.
  74. 2022 Saturday: Stick around for the latest…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next live effort by Fairport Convention was the wonderful “Off the Desk” (June 14, 2006). As always, these musical veterans deliver a powerful live show that sees them draw millions of fans to their music year after year.  People hunger for the OLD music because much of the new music- ahem, like Maroon Five, the Jonas Brothers, and other twits SUCKS. The band included virtuoso Andy Guttridge (acoustic guitars), Ric Sanders (violins), Dave Pegg (acoustic and electric basses, and tenor mandola), Simon Nichol (guitars and vocals), Gerry Conway (drums), and Chris Leslie (mandolins, fiddles, cellos, and flutes).  The two discs contain 22 classic tunes as only this veteran band can deliver which is why we encourage everyone to rush out to their favorite record shop and pick it up.  You will be glad you did, that we guarantee.

Trump chooses Representative Tom Price, R-GA, to be his Health and Human Services secretary.  Mr. Trump announces he is set to meet with former Governor Mitt Romney tomorrow in his quest to discover the perfect fit for U.S. secretary of state.  That should be interesting.

  65. 2020 Saturday A: A former aid to Governor Andrew “Murderer” Cuomo says the New York failed governor is trying to ‘milk his 15 minutes of fame.’  We agree with this viewpoint.  The man is a hack.    Next, Carter Page is seeking $75 million in a lawsuit from the FBI and the U.S. Department of Justice for wrongly surveilling him and for making him the fall guy in their plot to destroy Donald Trump.   Meanwhile, the U.S. Supreme Court agrees to take up the 2020 Census case, the one in which, the Trump administration sought NOT to count illegal aliens, something every other country on the face of the Earth would NEVER do.  You do not count border jumpers as U.S. citizens.
  66. 2020 Saturday B: Rep. James Clyburn, D-SC, the man who singlehandedly delivered the black vote to (racist) “Pro-China Joe” Biden (via using Chi-Com money or so we allege) is now begging ‘president-elect’ Joe Biden to put some black folks in his Cabinet and not just white guys and Jews.  What more proof do you need that former Vice President Joe Biden is a RACIST?  He is considering making Cindy McCain the next ambassador to the United Kingdom.  We don’t see any black folks, Joe!  Talking about Mr. Biden, we now know that DARK MONEY- an issue Democrats are always wailing about- most likely helped push Biden across the finish line- we have been saying this all along.  Elsewhere, the United States- working with Central American nations- has arrested at least 700 criminal MS-13 thugs.    Finally, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is demanding Venezuela release six wrongly convicted Citgo executives from prison and send them back to the U.S.
  67. 2020 Saturday C: POWs languishing in Gitmo are hopeful that a Biden-Harris administration will free them from prison.  Elsewhere, Pfizer is getting ready to ship its COVID-19 vaccines to the United States and commence distribution.   Since we are talking about the Chi-Com virus, let’s look at the stats for today:
  68. 2020 Saturday E: Speaking of the Chi-Vi, let us present to you the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox, communist China’s gift to the world and a boon for Democrats who want to exercise their fascist skills in locking down people’s lives like California’s hypocritical snowflake Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 62,094,127 confirmed cases, +593,035, 1,449,709, confirmed deaths, +9,203, and 37,750,055 confirmed recoveries, +474,550.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 13,351,024 confirmed cases, UP 168,297 from yesterday’s reporting, 269,562 confirmed deaths, UP 1,239, and 6,528,128 confirmed recoveries, UP 62,077.
  69. 2020 Saturday F: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 1,194,584 confirmed cases, 19,105 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 17,796 confirmed cases, 238 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 165,230 confirmed cases, 2,828 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Mississippi- currently, they have 149,940 confirmed cases, 3,779 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries- we guess it is what it is.  Let’s look at Israel’s stats now that Mo is living there: 334,789 confirmed cases, 2,854 confirmed deaths, and 321,857 confirmed recoveries.                
  70. 2020 Saturday G: Here are the winning numbers for tonight’s Super Lotto Draw #3611 with a $10 million jackpot: 04, 10, 27, 35, 58, and Mega 10.  Out of a total of 85,088 winning tickets, the highest winners were 11 people who had four numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $1,311 apiece.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #798 with a $216 million jackpot at stake: 08, 12, 18, 44, 51, and Power 18.  Out of a total number of 72,211 winning tickets, one person had four numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $39,226.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by guitar-slinger Richard Thompson was another monster album: “Mirror Blue” (January 17, 1994).  Joining the extremely talented guitarist/vocalist are (1) Jim Keltner on drums (2) Mickey Curry on drums (3) Alex Acuna (percussion), (4) Michael Froom (keyboards) (5) Jerry Scheff (basses) (6) John Kirkpatrick (accordions and concertinas), and loads of other people.  The first several songs- “For the Sake of Mary,” “I Can’t Wake Up to Save my Life,” “The Way That It Shows,” “Shane and Dixie,” to Side 2 and “I Ride in Your Slipstream,” and “Mascara Tears” grab the listener by the ears and doesn’t let ago until the closing notes of “Taking My Business Elsewhere.”  This is a fine album; we encourage everyone to seek out and to add to their ever-growing collection- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.
