2020 Monday B: Bret Baier of Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” reports that U.S. intelligence confirmed that Vladimir Putin’s Russia paid bounties to the Taliban to kill U.S. and Coalition troops. The question is whether President Donald J. Trump was briefed on this issue or not (the president says he was NOT) which has caused House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to bring up ‘Trump-Russia collusion again. Uh, okay.

  60. 2020 Monday A: Here are the numbers for the three states in which, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington- California first: 216,550 confirmed cases, 5,936 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for Hawaii: 872 confirmed cases, 18 confirmed deaths, and 714 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington state: 31,752 confirmed cases, 1,310 confirmed deaths, but sadly like California, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these worthless scumbags who manipulate the numbers and won’t publish the recoveries.  It’s all about politics.
  61. 2020 Monday B: Bret Baier of Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” reports that U.S. intelligence confirmed that Vladimir Putin’s Russia paid bounties to the Taliban to kill U.S. and Coalition troops.  The question is whether President Donald J. Trump was briefed on this issue or not (the president says he was NOT) which has caused House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to bring up ‘Trump-Russia collusion again.  Uh, okay.  Are we going to see another ‘Trump-Russia Collusion’ investigation again?  Give it a break [v].  Here are today’s Stock Market numbers: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 25,595.80, UP 580.25 points (2.32%); NASDAQ: 9,874.15, UP 116.93 points (1.20%); the S&P 500: 3,053.24, UP 44.19 (1.47%). 
  62. 2020 Monday C: U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts joins the four liberal justices on the court to smack down the Louisiana abortion law.  Once again, court watchers are shocked.  Roberts has joined the liberal justices in more rulings as of late which has led many to ask, WTF is going on with the man?  On the other hand, the nation’s highest court upheld the president’s ability to terminate the head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, an entity that claims to be autonomous, but which is part of the Executive Branch.  Awesome.  Finally, famed comedian Carl Reiner died in Beverly Hills, California, at the age of 98.
  63. 2021 Tuesday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 182,516,772 confirmed cases, +336,278, 3,952,180 confirmed deaths, +7,083 and 167,119,156 confirmed recoveries, +38,440.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 34,523,883 confirmed cases, UP 8,319 from yesterday’s reporting, 619,889 confirmed deaths, UP 294, [vi] and 29,004,365 confirmed recoveries, UP 41,516.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [vii]  
  64. 2021 Tuesday A: Joe Biden To Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 301,983 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 157,666 deaths

[ix]

[xiii]        
  68. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.279 per gallon, $2.978 in Florida, $4.008 in Hawaii, and $3.739 in Washington state. [xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- Oklahoma: $2.819.  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- Taiwan: $3.987 per U.S. Gallon. [xv].  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,464,274,272,039 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS. [xvi] Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Philippines, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is United Arab Emirates with $32 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position). [xvii]
  69. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day No. 98 in which ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been in charge of the southern border and Day No. 4 since she has been remotely close to the border.  Tucker Carlson reported tonight that the Biden-Harris regime is transporting illegal aliens across the country via buses until people began taking note and ratting them out and now by airliners where they dump in the dead of night in local communities.  We know this has been ongoing as President Barack Hussein Obama was doing the same thing to smaller communities around the U.S. leading local residents of all political stripes and colors to take to the streets and to prevent the buses from disgorging their inhabitants.  We must stop this and we should stop this, it is up to the American people to defend the country.  Tomorrow, President Donald J. Trump will be touring the southern border with Governor Greg Abbott and other high-ranking Lone Star State officials and Republican politicians.
  70. 2021 Tuesday G: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Admiral Brett Giroir says that the likelihood of a lab leak in Wuhan, communist China, is responsible for the spread of the Wuhan Virus around the world.  Thank you, communist China, for either your lackadaisical or purposeful release of this evil virus.  One America News reports that there have been 6,136 deaths connected to various COVID-19 vaccines.  All the more reason to wait.
  71. 2021 Tuesday H: U.S. Supreme Court News I– The U.S. Supreme Court in a 6-3 ruling today said that illegal aliens who have been previously deported and are apprehended crossing the border again have NO RIGHT to a hearing on whether they should be released into the general population while awaiting asylum claims (which are mostly bogus) or other hearings that will permit them to remain in the country.  Thus, the illegals can be held indefinitely.  Do it the right way, illegals, or don’t do it.
  72. 2021 Tuesday I: Joe Biden Regime News I– Thanks to senescent Joe Biden’s indiscriminate bombing of Iranian-backed militia ‘targets’ in Syria and Iraq earlier this week, these self-same terrorists are attacking U.S. positions in the region with missiles and rockets.  We believe that this is part of ‘strategy’ by Joe Biden’s earpiece to force the United States to amp up with more attacks thus keeping troops in the region and defense bucks flowing to various military-industrial-political entities.  Joe Biden’s family never saw anything that might put cash into their pockets that they didn’t want to exploit to the max.  Meanwhile, Congressman Drew Ferguson, R-GA 3rd congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden is going to leave Americans pining away for President Jimmy Carter.’  Ouch.
  73. 2021 Tuesday J: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– “America’s Mayor” Rudy Giuliani is facing another probe, i.e., witch hunt, over him supposedly lobbying President Donald J. Trump on behalf of the jihadist wannabe government of Turkey.  We recall how the left said the same thing of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, U.S. Army Ret.  Bulls**t is bulls**t folks.  They hate Rudy which is a true travesty.   Elsewhere, in true crime and punishment news, we learned today that former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin is close to a plea deal- ahem, double jeopardy smackdown– with the federal government over him denying street thug George Floyd his ‘civil rights’ when Officer Chauvin applied pressure to Floyd’s neck.   Elsewhere, after a U.S. marine was struck by flying lead in Times Square, N.Y., as a bunch of thugs were conducting a gun battle in broad daylight, Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio says he is going to ‘swarm law enforcement assets’ into the area.  Oh, big flipping deal.
  74. 2021 Tuesday K: Human-Caused Disasters– As the rescue efforts continue in Surfside, Florida, what with the collapse of the condominium, there are growing cries for an investigation- maybe even a grand jury- to investigate how the hell this horrifying event occurred in the United States (can you imagine if it was a ‘Trump-built building?  Ai-yi-yi!).  Congressman Byron Donalds, R-FL 19th congressional district, says that some of these condominium boards ‘make their own rules.’  What is clear is that someone or something is going to pay a hellacious price for this.  This is something that occurs in a s—hole nations like Iran, Russia, or communist China, NOT the United States.
  75. 2021 Tuesday L: U.S. House Of Representatives News I– House Republicans are launching their own investigation into determining just how complicit the Chi-Coms are for letting loose the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Of course, the Chi-Coms are mad and are lashing out against Republicans by wailing over the lack of transparency.  These are the people who let the virus loose across the entire planet and now they are sniveling and whining, big crocodile tears running down the sides of their mouths and dripping off their chins.  Lying f**ks.   Meanwhile, the Democratic-Socialist-controlled House is going to vote on removing Confederate States of America statues from the Capitol Building.  Losers.  Meanwhile, the GOP House members have not yet said whether they will support House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s scam panel that will ‘investigate the events surrounding January 06, 2021,’ events we believe “Mumbles” had a hand in creating. After all, it was the largest FALSE FLAG OPERATION in American political history.
  76. 2021 Tuesday M: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump is blasting his former U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr as ‘weak’ and ‘pathetic,’ as excerpts from the former AG’s new book come out.  Apparently, AG Barr didn’t think President Trump could win another term and that NO election interference occurred in the November 2020 Elections, ‘interference’ he had no intention of investigating.  Folks, this is why so many American patriots are disillusioned and disappointed in scumbags such as Bill Barr.  We honestly thought he would defend the president when in fact, he defended the swamp.  Wow.  In other news regarding the 45th President, more than 3-plus million viewers tuned into Newsmax to watch President Donald J. Trump’s in Wellington, Ohio, this past weekend with millions and millions more expected to tune in to his upcoming rally in Florida this weekend.  (Note- the Democratic-Socialists are wetting themselves).
  77. 2021 Tuesday N: California State News– Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom has filed a lawsuit against his hand-picked California Secretary of State Shirley Weber yesterday to make sure his party designation appears on the upcoming recall election ballot.  In other California news, Los Angeles County health officials are demanding that everyone continue wearing masks indoors as the ginned-up fear of the ‘Delta variant’ of the Chi-Com virus continues.  Meanwhile, California adds another four states- including Florida- to its list of banned travel sites for statewide employees over their being ‘unfriendly’ to the tranny and homo movements.  We at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day recall a time when Democrats claimed to be defenders of women and girls whereas now, chicks with dicks and dudes without dicks are more important in the pantheon of Democratic-Socialist Party politics than are women and girls.  Wow.
  78. 2021 Tuesday O: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega Millions Draw #1672 with a $61 million pot on the line: 07, 38, 50, 52, 69, and Mega 21.  Stay tuned for the results as to the winners.  Out of 48,337 winning tickets in the Golden State, the highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $13,062.

  37. 1942 Wednesday: The Afrika Korps crosses the border between Libya and Egypt—this was as far as it would get.  However, had they not outrun their supply lines and had not the British grown a spine and launched a last-ditch defensive effort, the Afrika Korps could have conquered Egypt and seized the Suez Canal.  Had that happened, Germany’s World War I ally Turkey would have entered the war.
  38. 1943 Thursday: Allied air assaults continue hammering Sicily as the Allies prepare to land on the soil of one of the three main Axis allies- Fascist Italy.  The Germans and diehard Black Shirt Fascists are going to put up a stiff resistance when the landings come.

Trump from today until July 15, 2019.  A so-called Republican, he would become the 27th U.S. secretary of defense on July 23 and would serve in this position until President Trump fired his worthless, traitorous butt on November 09, 2020.
  74. 2020 Wednesday: A three judge panel of the D.C. Court of Appeals tells D.C. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan to DROP the case against former national security advisor and Lt. Gen.

  75. 2020 Wednesday A: Here are the Kung Flu stats for the world today: 9,237,691 confirmed cases, 476,911 confirmed deaths, and 4,613,425 confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the United States, here are today’s stats for the Chinese Virus Crisis: 2,425,361 confirmed cases, 123,726 confirmed deaths, and 746,563 confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day possesses chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, the NOT-so-Golden State first: 190,222 confirmed cases, 5,632 confirmed deaths, and as usual, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the Aloha State, here are today’s stats: 819 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 673 confirmed recoveries.  Lastly, in the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 29,826 confirmed cases, 1,293 confirmed deaths, but like California, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  For the fun of it, let’s look at the numbers for Michigan: 68,555 confirmed cases, 6,114 confirmed deaths, but sadly, Napoleonic Governor Gretchen Whitmer WON’T release the number of confirmed recoveries.
  76. 2020 Wednesday B: Sadly, there was a dreadful day on Wall Street.  Here are the numbers for the DOW Jones Industrial Average: 25,445.94, DOWN 710.16 points (2.73%).  Next, here are the numbers for the NASDAQ: 9,907.17, DOWN 222.20 points (2.19%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,050.33, DOWN 80.96 points (2.59%).  Finally, President Donald J. Trump announces he will sign an executive order that will forbid the desecration of federal monuments or memorials with the possibility of 10 years in federal prison.  We have seen uncontrolled mobs, filled with communists, and funded by the Chinese Communist Party (or so we believe) that the minute a horrible crime like the slaying of George Floyd occurs, take to the streets across the nation destroying everything in their path as though they were reincarnations of Mao Zedong’s Red Guards.  Sign it, Mr. President, sign it, and let’s see this scum go to PRISON for good.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 300,702 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 158,947 deaths

  82. 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 and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.249 per gallon, $2.939 in Florida, $3.993 in Hawaii, and $3.670 in Washington state.[xx]    Let’s look at one other location- New Jersey: $3.082.  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- Bahamas: $3.941 per U.S. Gallon.[xxi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,444,594,224,863 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS. [xxii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Germany, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Bermuda with $73 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position).[xxiii]
  83. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day #93 for Willie Brown’s mattress, the laughing jackal, aka the ‘border czar’ aka “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in this job and yet to have visited the southern border.  Reportedly, she is going to go tomorrow so as to beat President Donald J. Trump who is visiting the border with Texas state and GOP officials this upcoming Wednesday, June 30.   Next, here are today’s stats as presented by One America News: (1) Cost this day for caring for the illegal aliens in the country: $530,048,320.  (2) Total Cost this year of caring for infestation: $191,215,026,176.  Next, (3) numbers of illegals who have crossed this year: 1.959,861.  Finally, (4) Total estimated number of illegal aliens lurking in the country: 35,959,800.  (Note- our blog has been around since 2009 and back then, we estimated the number of illegal aliens in the country at 35-50 million.  Now, a dozen years later, we believe the number of illegals infesting the country is around 75 is around 75-100 million.  Time to begin scooping up this flotsam and jetsam of humanity and loading them aboard trains, planes, airliners, buses, and even freighters and returning them to Tierra del Fuego.  Let them march up from the tip of South America back to the border where hopefully, we will have lain in minefields, antipersonnel ditches and obstacles, and other impediments to the illegal alien invasion.  It must stop now).
  84. 2021 Thursday G: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– The BBC is reporting that the conditions in which illegal alien brats are languishing is absolutely horrific and is an insult to all nations claiming to respect ‘human rights.’  Meanwhile, we continue hearing that the illegal alien brats able to escape these gulags are being shuttled across the country and handed over to foster parents who are getting paid handsomely to care for these noncitizen children.  Cheaper to send them home.  NOW.  Rep. Jason Smith, R-MO 8th congressional district, told Chris Salcedo of Newsmax TV that the federal government is ignoring all laws connected with illegals by giving them housing vouchers, free travel, food, transportation, and even stimulus checks which is insane, costing the American taxpayers, and simply must stop.  (Note- and ‘hairy-legs Joe’ wonders why the American people continue buying more firearms, ammo, and anything else they can with which to defend themselves from both illegal aliens and out-of-control, oppressive federal government).
  85. : Foreign News / Overseas News I– Israel opposes the reentry of the United States into the Iran nuclear deal, aka the JCPOA.  Next, over allegations of the rampant use of SLAVE LABOR in Chi-Com concentration camps, the United States is banning imports of materials used in solar panels from that hellhole of a nation.  Good.  Let’s make everything we can here in the United States- like we used to do.   Meanwhile, the FREEDOM FIGHTERS of the TRUE CHINA- Taiwan- are condemning the shuttering of the Apple Daily, a true voice for the pro-democracy, pro-freedom movement in Hong Kong.  The Chi-Coms have arrested many upper echelon employees and have closed the paper down as of today.  Thank you, Taiwan, for being so bold in calling out this evil travesty.  “Pro-China Joe” Biden most certainly won’t.  Elsewhere, there is fear that with Benjamin Netanyahu no longer the prime minister of Israel that all the gains made by the Abraham Accords could go out the window.  That would be sad.   Finally, German Fuhrer Angela Merkel says that Europe is on ‘thin ice’ due to the rise of the Delta variant of the Chi-Com Bat Flu Virus running amok there.  Uh, okay.
  86. 2021 Thursday IPolitical News I– Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, to Newsmax TV: “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka the ‘border czar,’ is visiting the wrong part of the border tomorrow.   Next, former governor and UN ambassador Nikki Haley is scheduled to give the keynote address at Iowa’s Annual Lincoln Day GOP dinner fueling speculation that she may run for the White House in 2024.  (Note- don’t bother, Nikki, we place you in the same category as other losers such as John McCain, Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, John Boehner, and other detestable RINOs.  Still, it’s your humiliation).
  87. 2021 Thursday J:  Political News II– As the witch hunt grinds on and on, the New York State Bar Association has suspended the law license of “America’s Mayor” Rudy Giuliani, also the attorney of President Donald J. Trump.  These people should be ashamed.  New York could care less about all the riots that happened last summer, the countless businesses burned, the people injured and even killed; no, all they care about is anyone on the Trump team.  F**k them.  Speaking of Rudy, he said that outgoing NYC Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio, CPUSA, legacy is rising crime and nothing else.
  88. 2021 Thursday K: Political News III– Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-TX 1st congressional district, says that tomorrow’s visit by “Kooky Kamala” Harris to the southern border is going to use illegal alien kids as photo props.  Sad.   Meanwhile, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says ‘it’s time to fire Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci over his incompetence.’  Next, the Biden regime and a bipartisan group of senators (meaning Democratic-Socialists and obsequious RINOs) have arrived at a deal on infrastructure.  Elsewhere, the Democrat-controlled Congress has repealed Trump-era safeguards imposed on payday lenders.
  89. 2021 Thursday L: Joe Biden Regime News I– FBI Director Chris Wray is defending his request for $10 billion for the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  The FBI must monitor them thar white supremacists, you know.  Ain’t them white supremacists Democrats?  You got that right, too.   Next, following Catholic bishops determining that drooling Joe Biden is not eligible for receiving Holy Communion, Democrats are calling for reviews of tax-exempt statuses for numerous Christian houses of worship.  (Note- the Dems will NEVER go after Muslims, folks, too scary and too dangerous for them to do so).  In other Biden regime news, he is going to relocate Afghans who have aided the Americans and allied troops in Afghanistan.  Good.  In other Biden regime news, the feds say that ‘employment is significantly down thanks to business owners not hiring.’  (Note- they can’t pay the wages it would take to entice recalcitrant employees to return to work).
  90. 2021 Thursday M: California State News– Things continue going bad to worse for Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom in that the 30 days period with which to permit timid voters who signed the recall petitions to back out, out of the nearly 2 million valid signatures, only 43 people retracted their names.  Forty-three people, folks, which tells us just how much the people of this state detest the little prick.  Add to that the fact that HE LIED to the citizens of the Golden State by claiming ‘his administration performed fire maintenance on more than 90,000 acres within the state when in actuality, he did less than 12,000.  (Note- watch for the Delta variant of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu to be out of control around Election Day so the wimpy governor can try to frighten voters into not going to the polls to oust him.  It won’t work).  Speaking of the Golden State, Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca is urging for the declaration of a state of emergency over the homelessness problem that sees homeless people camped out on public beaches, in the streets, back alleyways, in abandoned buildings, vacant lots, parking garages, the city is going to hell and needs help.  Declare the emergency, “Nazi Newsom!”
  91. 2021 Thursday N: U.S. Military News– Reportedly, in two weeks, the U.S. will have just 650 troops stationed in Afghanistan.  Meanwhile, the pathetic political hack who serves as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Milley, tries to normalize the bogus Critical Race Theory (which we now view as CRIMINAL RACE THEORY), he brags about reading ‘Marx, Mao, Lenin,’ and other left-wing murderers and hacks.  Friends, General Mark Milley is akin to Nazi Generals Alfred Jodl and Wilhelm Keitel, both of whom went to the gallows in the aftermath of World War II.   This is what happens to brown-nosing political hacks and it’s time these losers were the ones culled from the herd, not brave patriots.  We wish he were a patriot like General George S. Patton or Field Marshal Douglas MacArthur but he’s not- he’s a hack.
  92. 2022 Friday: Where we were last year: The Joe Biden regime continues to stumble along, looking for white supremacists wherever they can find them even though none exist and IF they did exist, they would be among the Democrats as that is who fleshed out the ranks of the Ku Klux Klan.  Still, all components of the Executive and Legislative branches continue beating the drums seeking them out wherever they can find them so they can punish them.  How soon before drooling Joe Biden requests the Chi-Coms send him some troops so he can maintain order in the streets?

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Poor Brian Wilson, beset by mental troubles, either caused by familial or drug-induced problems was under the control of one of the EVILEST people in the annals of modern music- Dr. Eugene Landy who was hired originally by the other Beach Boys to keep poor Brian on the straight and narrow.  Somehow, this evil scumbag got control of Wilson in ways similar to what happened to Britney Spears- at a later date- only this despicable disgrace to the mental health community got his name and others among his employees as cowriters on Brian Wilson’s tunes so they could suck every cent possible out of one of America’s greatest composers.  Brian recorded a solo album- his first- the self-titled “Brian Wilson,” an album that came out on July 12, 1988.  Brian brought in a competent lot of musicians to help him craft this album and given the circumstances- with Landy or one of his minions spying on Wilson at all hours of the day and night- is worth checking out.  In later years, Landy and his troll-like helpers have had their names stripped from the album which is good because all of them deserve to be doing long prison terms in maximum-security facilities.  Seek it out, give it a listen, and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

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

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

Currently, Joe is shy 164,504 deaths

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

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  67. 2021 Monday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.221 per gallon, $2.852 in Florida, $3.945 in Hawaii, and $3.603 in Washington state.[xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- Illinois: $3.301.  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- Dominica: $3.476 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,379,2427,836,049 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good.  NOTE- communist China owns approximately $1.1 trillion.  After Japan, the Chi-Coms, Brazil, and the United Kingdom, Ireland holds about $300 billion of U.S. debt.[xvii]
  68. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe–  Today is Day #77 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka the laughing hyena, to be on the job and we supposedly have a sighting: she is going to discuss border issues with the Guatemalan government in Guatemala[xviii].  Wow.  Next, One America News shared the latest statistics on the ILLEGAL TSUNAMI overwhelming the United States this morning.  First, the cost to U.S. taxpayers this day alone: $539,091,968.  Second, here is the total cost to American taxpayers for the year 2021 in caring for the illegal alien tidal wave: $172,593,922,048.  Imagine what this money could do to help the American people?  We could end the mushrooming tent cities across the country.  Third, here is the number of illegal aliens who have crossed the southern border in 2021 alone: 1,768,949.  Finally, here is the estimate by OAN of the total number of illegals in the country as we speak: 35,768,948.  (Note- the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day has long prophesied that the numbers as far back as 2009 when this blog began was between 35-50 million.  In 2021, we believe the numbers are closer to 60-80 million.  All of these people must be scooped up and deported out of the country with microchips embedded in their bodies so we can track them from here on out).  Elsewhere, the Bidenistas now are saying that people being granted U.S. citizenship will NO longer have to pass an FBI background check.  Say what? 
  69. 2021 Monday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– Voters are going to the polls in Peru today.  For president, they have TWO populist candidates from which to choose: (1) Keiko Fujimori, the daughter of a former Peruvian president and businessman Pedro Castillo.   Meanwhile, in Japan, popularity polls for aged Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga are at 37-percent.  And he just met Joe Biden!  Whoa.  Speaking of Japan, Japanese citizens are evenly split as to whether the 2020, uh, 2021 Summer Olympics in Tokyo will proceed or undergo cancelation out of health fears.   Next, Israeli officials prohibit a ‘far-right group’ (what are they, Nazis?) of Jews from conducting a march through Jerusalem’s Old City.   Elsewhere, President Volodymyr Zelensky blasts Joe Biden for his ineptitude of lifting U.S. sanctions on Russia’s Nord Stream 2 Pipeline carrying natural gas from the former Soviet Union to former Nazi Germany.   Finally, while the Biden regime bumbles about, jihadist Iran is close to a break-out in months- if not weeks- of achieving nuclear weapons. 
  70. 2021 Monday H: (New Category) War on Terror News / Terrorism News / Jihad News– Boko Haram’s leader, the thug Abubakar Shekau severely wounded himself when his thugs clashed with rival, ISIS-affiliated scumbags.  He tried to detonate a suicide vest so his enemies would not capture him.  However, he did not do a decent job so he could not go down to hell to commune with Shaitan and achieve his 72 virgins (and yes, young boys, too).  We guess his people were able to drag his mauled body away to safety.[xix]   Elsewhere, U.S. senators call for better regulation on cryptocurrencies as they are the number one way in which criminals and terrorists move money around and get paid for services.   Finally, the founder of the terrorist group, Hezbollah- Iran’s 74-year-old Ali-Akbar Mohtashamipour- died from a Chi-Vi infection.  Good riddance.
  71. 2021 Monday I: Covid-19 Updates and Additional Information–  After chaos ensued in the Big Apple over the weekend with the return of Chi-Vi curfews, lockdowns, and restrictions from Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio, NYPD arrests at least 23 people.  NO bail for them.  Next- and as expected- following one California’s county making changes to HOW it collects COVID-19 fatalities data, Chi-Vi deaths in Alameda County collapsed by 25-percent.  Alameda County- home of Oakland, California- now is only compiling COVID-19 deaths only if the virus actually killed them, not that the victim merely died with traces of the Bat Flu in their system.  We believe that deaths formerly blamed on the Xi Jinping Virus were driven higher due to politics and financial grants and not because they truly are as high as claimed.  Politics, baby, it’s all about POLITICS.   Meanwhile, Stanford University epidemiologist and professor Dr. Jay Bhattacharya says that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci’s credibility is completely shot.  Finally, a new report broadcast on Newsmax says that ‘rare genetic sequencing in COVID-19 suggest a Wuhan lab leak’ because it would appear the virus was modified in the lab and not in nature.[xx]  
  72. 2021 Monday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– A day after filing a lawsuit against the seemingly corrupt and fraudulent Dominion Voting Systems, the lawyer who filed it on behalf of mega-businessman Mike Lindell has resigned from the firm.   Meanwhile, former NYPD Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik says that ‘probes into voter and election fraud don’t happen overnight.’ 
  73. 2021 Monday K: Social Media News and Big Tech News– A French government watchdog is going after Google by accusing them of abusing their market power in online advertising.  (Note- we could say much about Google, one of the most corrupt, crooked companies on the face of the planet but we won’t).   In other news, following Nigeria closing down Twitter over its ban of a recent tweet by that nation’s President Muhammadu Buhari, Jack Dorsey’s eunuchs began wailing that ‘Twitter is a human right.’  No, Twitter is FECAL MATTER, President Donald J. Trump should have shut them and their equally pathetic pansy buddies at Facebook DOWN.   
  74. 2021 Monday L: U.S. Supreme Court News– The United States Supreme Court ruled 9-0 that NO citizenship should be available to those given TEMPORARY PROTECTED STATUS.  They say that people given something ‘temporary’ should not then be granted something ‘permanent.’  Once whatever crisis ends from whence, they came, they must return home.  Period.   Next, the high court rejected a lower court case in which the ruling said that ONLY males could register for the Selective Service aka the Draft.  The court said it’s up to Congress to determine who can and who cannot be drafted. 
  75. 2021 Monday M: Moron News– Shame and humiliation continue to grow for Sandy “The Fly” Cortez (AOC) as people continue taking shots at her over telling her pobrecita abuelita NOT to take the $100,000 conservative commentator Matt Walsh raised in TEN HOURS to help “The Fly’s” granny.  Since poor abuelita has been told NOT to take the cash for house renovations by her granddaughter, GoFundMe will refund the money- nearly $104,000- to the hundreds of thousands of kind, caring donors.  In other Moron News, CNN’s Brian “The Schmeckel” Stelter is taking incoming fire over his ass-kissing, boot-licking interview with White House chief propagandist Jen “Circle Back” Psaki over the weekend.  Stelter- who lost his testicles seemingly at birth- is nothing but a ground-kissing, brown-nosing POS.  We cannot imagine what he must do for Jeff Zucker to maintain his job…; next, California is forging ahead with giving SLAVE REPARATIONS to former slaves…seeing as how California NEVER had slavery, it seems rather stupid.  Still, a desperate governor will do anything to cling to office (but note- black people who signed the recall petition won’t get a dime and even worse, whatever they receive will be 100-percent taxable.  YOU heard it here, first).[xxi]  In other Moron News, ‘environmentalist’ (and angriest teenager alive) Greta Thunberg ‘is back’ with a new video.  So f**king what?
  76. 2021 Monday N: Health And Medical Alerts– there may be hope for drooling Joe Biden, “Mumbles” Pelosi, and vacant-eyed Senator Dianne Feinstein: the Food and Drug Administration- the FDA- has approved a new Alzheimer’s disease drug, the first in nearly two decades.  Biogen’s new drug- aducanumab will be marketed under the brand-name Aduhelm®.  While it might be way too late for nonagenarians such as “Mumbles’ and centenarians like ‘Cho-Mo Joe’ and Di-Fi, there may be hope for numerous others.  Thank you, Biogen.
  77. 2021 Monday O: Joe Biden Regime News I– Joe Biden and his boss, Barack Hussein Obama are out there doing a quick-step as to HOW WONDERFUL Obamacare is even as Red States are severing ties with the socialized system of healthcare.  (Note- the two should take their act on the road).  Speaking of the regime, chief White House propagandist Jen “Circle Back” Psaki says press briefings will soon return to 100-percent capacity.  Elsewhere, after the GOP rejected Joe Biden’s infrastructure plan, the GOP rejected his counteroffer which led to drooling Joe to reject the next offer from the GOP.  (Note- news reports suggest that Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer is having a hell of a time trying to push the regime’s agenda as things surrounding the usurper president continue to implode).  In other Biden regime news, a new poll says that with JoJo Biden in the White House, the regime is not enjoying an early bounce in Germany and France what with the (fraudulent) change in White House occupancy.  (Note- everyone KNOWS the truth- that’s why).  Finally, the regime claims to have recovered millions in ransom monies paid to the hackers who shuttered the Colonial Pipeline.  Good.
  78. 2021 Monday P: Political News I– As the U.S. birthrate continues to decline, questions arise as to whether the federal government should encourage its citizens to get married and to produce new generations of kids in much the same way Hungary and other nations have.  (Note- it seems like our country frowns on marriage, promotes legions of bastard children, and non-reproductive styles of living like homosexuality and transgenderism.  Maybe things would be better if the Russians and Chi-Coms took over?).   In other news, Megabank J.P. Morgan-Chase has announced it’s going to refuse donations to ALL Republicans who question the legitimacy of the illegitimate 2020 Elections.  (Note- that’s a bank brown-nosing the Dems for you).  Elsewhere, former Governor “Crooked Ed” Rendell, DS-PA, says of the ‘infrastructure plan’ that some ‘nontraditional infrastructure’ (like what, Ed?) should be left within it its thousands of pages. 
  79. 2021 Monday Q: Political News II– Kimberly Klacik, former congressional candidate and founder of the Red Renaissance PAC says the ongoing killings among black Americans with guns is  a left-wing cultural genocide.   Today, we learned that yesterday on Fox News Channel, the ignoramus Chris Wallace was trying to light into Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, over his defense of the filibuster and his refusal to join fellow Democrats in pushing the “For the People Act,” aka H.R. 1/S 1, the total theft of America’s elections system.  Wallace called the steadfast senator ‘naïve.’[xxii]  Elsewhere, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis, R-FL, signed two bills into law today, both of which deal with foreign threats and intrusions into the state.  The first law prohibiting foreign influence in the Sunshine State, singling out nations like Russia, communist China, Iran, Venezuela, Syria, Cuba, and other s—hole countries.  The second one singles out the Chi-Coms in particular forbidding them to establish Confucius Institutes and funding universities and newspapers with wagonloads of Chi-Com cash.  Good for you, Governor.
  80. 2021 Monday R: Political News III– President Donald J. Trump said (1) that Mark Zuckerberg broke the law with drop-boxes on Election Day.  He also said that cryptocurrencies are a SCAM, something with which, we wholeheartedly agree.  When asked if he would run with “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis in 2024 as his running mate, he said, ‘sure, it’s possible.’  Unclear as to whether he would run with Vice President Mike Pence again- we rather doubt it.  Elsewhere, Javier Villalobos becomes the first GOP governor-elect in the history of McAllen, Texas.  In a city 85-percent Hispanic and mostly Democrat, the people want someone willing to STOP the flood of illegal aliens.  
  81. 2021 Monday S: Political News IV– Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, along with Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district, says that the popularity of the ‘America First’ rallies proves that power in the United States does NOT reside in Washington, D.C., but around the country among the American people.  Elsewhere, Boston Police Commissioner Dennis White is fired over claims of domestic violence at home.  Ouch.  Later in the day, Rep. Nancy Mace, R-SC 1st congressional district, says that ‘Dr. Fauci must go.’  Meanwhile, news arises that former Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt, Republican, will challenge sitting Senator Catherine Cortez Masto, DS-NV, in the 2022 Elections.
  82. 2021 Monday T: Fourth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award Updates– we have three new nominees for the Fourth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Awards this year, the first being whacked-out psychiatrist Dr. Aruna Khilanani- who recently gave a speech on April 6, 2021, to students at Yale University School of Medicine in which, she talked about wanting to kill and bury white people.  Wow.  Next, Calvin Pearson and his dimwitted sidekick, Nikole “Bozo the Clown” Jones, creators of the 1619 Project made the list, too, as both of them deserve the ‘Lavrentiy Beria treatment’ of ‘lead to the back of the head down in the bowels of the Lubyanka Prison in central Moscow- symbolically, of course (racist bigot- what were you thinking?).  The third and final person deserving of the treatment is Robin Di Angelo, the promoter of WHITE FRAGILITY who earns millions of dollars promoting this foul rot.  Congratulations.  You join our growing list.
  83. 2021 Monday U: Miscellaneous News I– A day or so before Kelly Stewart was to become the newest betting analyst at ESPN, she was fired over previously acknowledged tweets from nearly a decade ago, tweets she deleted, in which she called people attacking her ‘fags’ and other derogatory names.  Folks, at what flipping point does one’s past disappear?  At some point, it simply must, especially if the person acknowledges his or her fault and apologizes.  Enough is flipping enough already.  Elsewhere, Bill Gates and Warren Buffet are going to build a nuclear reactor in Wyoming while Jeff Bezos is planning to embark on a suborbital flight into space within the next couple of weeks.  Meanwhile, Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines makes Chi-Vi vaccine passports optional for its guests.
  84. 2021 Monday V: Nasa, Space, and UFO News– speaking of space, NASA administrator Bill Nelson, D-FL, says that ‘NASA scientists are investigating the U.S. Navy’s films of UFO incidents.’  Good.  This is a national security issue.
  85. 2021 Monday W: National Security News– Red State reports exclusively that the ‘highest-ranking defector to come out of communist China has been working with and being protected by the Defense Intelligence Agency. This defector- God forbid ‘Chi-Com Joe’ Biden gets ahold of his or her identity as unlike what the libs claimed President Donald J. Trump would do with the Russians, Joe Biden most certainly will for his Chi-Com masters that person will be in grave danger- has informed the DIA of all manner of clandestine weapons programs.  Not only this but the defector has also pointed to Chi-Com spies in the FBI, the CIA, and in several other sensitive government agencies.  This is NOT good.  Ferret out this scum and put them in prison.  Apparently, when FBI Director Chris Wray heard of this, he was ‘blindsided.’  This article must be read to be believed. [xxiii]
  86. 2021 Monday X: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Former Alabama segregationist and Governor James Patterson, Democrat, dies at age 99.  We suspect that Joe Biden knew Governor Patterson and knew him well seeing as how the old coot knew all the segregationists.
  87. 2021 Monday Y: The Wrap-Up– In Pakistan, two express trains slammed into one another killing at least 51 people in the human-caused disaster.  Looks like Casey Jones driving the train was high on cocaine…(so sang the Grateful Dead[xxiv]).  In other news, the Biden regime is defending the indefensible upcoming meeting with Russia’s Vladimir Putin who is going to rip the feeble old Joe a new one on June 16, 2021, in Switzerland.  Speaking of drooling old Joe, people are asking WTF over his lack of any word on the 77th anniversary of the D-Day landings while he continues to flounder about the White House before returning home to Delaware or to Camp David on the weekends.  (We suspect his keepers dope him up with all manner of drugs to try to keep him in some sort of coherent state.  Wow).[xxv]
  88. 2021 Monday Z: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– tomorrow night’s Mega-Millions Draw #1666 as of today is worth $56 million.  We will share the results of the draw tomorrow night.
  89. 2022 Tuesday: Brand new week and Vladdie is here.  Let’s see what happens today…

[iii] 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.

[iv] We expect to present the music of the Jackson Five and Michael Jackson sometime in 2025-2026 so please stay tuned for future developments.

[v] 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. The album, “Rumours,” appeared on Tuesday, 18-January-2011 at our original blog.   We look forward to picking them back up and doing a Round No. 2 which will include the solo efforts of the band members, too, such as Bob Welch.  We thank you.

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

[xviii] Speaking of which, the Washington Post, aka WAPO, reports protesters met “Kooky Kamala” in Guatemala and held signs saying, “TRUMP WON!” and “GO HOME.”  Wow.  Even people in countries the Dems think are on THEIR side know the truth.  My, my, my.  God bless you, Guatemala, there is a way in which we do things legally.  Let’s do it.  Speaking of WAPO, their CEO is lambasting the Biden regime over its WAR on the FREE PRESS.  Say it ain’t so!

[xix] This POS tried to whack himself so as not to humiliate himself by having his enemies capture him alive.  However, it is much more humiliating to attempt to take one’s life and to fail in the act, especially when that same person is a big cheerleader for others to commit suicide bombings.  Loser. 

[xx] Rep. Michael Burgess, R-TX 26th congressional district told Newsmax that Dr. ‘Phony Tony’ Fauci must testify before Congress again.  The POS of won’t do it, Congressman,

[xxi] There are NO FREE LUNCHES in the Golden State when Democrats run the show.

[xxii] NOTE- FUCK Chris Wallace.  C**ksucker.

[xxiii] EXCLUSIVE: High-Ranking Chinese Defector Has ‘Direct Knowledge’ of Several Chinese Special Weapons Programs – RedState.

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

[xxv] Hopefully, when Putin meets Susan Rice, uh, we mean Joe Biden, Putin won’t give slobbering Joe the ‘Engelbert Dollfuss treatment.’  

146. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, MAY 26, 2022

2016 Thursday: The Chi-Coms demonstrate their sexism for all to see today when the Xinhua News Agency lays into Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen by labeling her a ‘political extremist’ and then saying that because she is unmarried and has no children is mentally and emotionally unstable. That is what the Chi-Coms are, a bunch of racists and sexists. F**k them.

Elsewhere, Pope Francis honored Jews murdered in the Holocaust and in terrorist attacks during a visit to the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial in Jerusalem as he wrapped up his Mideast pilgrimage.  Finally, Egypt began holding a three-day presidential election; former military chief Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi emerged the landslide winner.
  52. 2015 Tuesday: Hackers manage to break into the computer system of the Internal Revenue Service and steal the personal data of at least 100,000 taxpayers.  The part of the system into which, the scumbags break is one that permits taxpayers to retrieve prior filed tax returns, something the hackers will use to file their own ‘tax returns’ and other nefarious acts.  Thanks, John Koskinen.
  53. 2016 Thursday: The Chi-Coms demonstrate their sexism for all to see today when the Xinhua News Agency lays into Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen by labeling her a ‘political extremist’ and then saying that because she is unmarried and has no children is mentally and emotionally unstable.  That is what the Chi-Coms are, a bunch of racists and sexists.  F**k them.

  57. 2020 Tuesday: Communist China’s Wuhan Bat Virus Crisis continues racking up numbers around the world although millions of Americans are leaving their homes and returning to normal lives no matter what authoritarian-leaning governors demand they do.  Good for the freedom-seekers!  Here are the numbers for the day: 5,559,130 confirmed cases, 348,610 confirmed deaths, but 2,271,268 confirmed recoveries which dwarfs the numbers of deaths.  If only Blue State governors would report the numbers of recoveries! 
  58. 2020 Tuesday A: Here are the numbers for the United States: 1,715,457 confirmed cases, 100,136 confirmed deaths, but 360,561 confirmed recoveries the latter number of which, Blue State governors (most of them, that is) won’t report.  In the three states where the AICPENDBLOG.COM has chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the numbers, Golden State first: 96,733 confirmed cases, 3,814 confirmed deaths, but ZERO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Gov. Gavin Newsom, you sir, are little more than a statewide embarrassment.  Shame on you.  Next, here are the numbers for the Aloha State: 643 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 592 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Gov. David Ige.  Finally, here are the numbers for the Evergreen State: 20,133 confirmed cases, 1,078 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries; Governor Jay Inslee, you are a worthless POS.    
  59. 2020 Tuesday B: The Stock Market closed UP today; here is the DOW Jones Industrial Complex close: 24,995.11, UP 529.95 (2.17%); here is the NASDAQ close: 9,340.22 UP 15.63 (0.17%); finally, here is the S & P 500: 2,991.77 UP 36.32 (1.23%).

  61. 2021 Wednesday A: NOTE: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 289,149 Chi-Vi deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 170,460 deaths  
  62. 2021 Wednesday 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: 3,780,845 confirmed cases, 63,010 confirmed deaths, and 2,022,699 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,316,142 confirmed cases, 36,647 confirmed deaths, and 1,934,257 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 35,924 confirmed cases, 496 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 432,993 confirmed cases, 5,780 confirmed deaths, and 211,014 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., North Carolina: they have 999,567 confirmed cases, 13,031 confirmed deaths, and 972,066 confirmed recoveries.[ix]    President Donald J. Trump says that the early investment in ‘VID vaccines probably saved tens of millions of American lives, the very same vaccines for which, drooling old Joe Biden takes complete credit. 
  63. 2021 Wednesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,408 confirmed cases, 6,406 confirmed deaths, and 832,566 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Ghana, a historical conspirator with the Europeans in the Atlantic Slave Trade: 93,711 cases of the virus, 783 confirmed deaths and 91,707 confirmed recoveries.[x]

  65. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.170 per gallon, $2.871 in Florida, $3.918 in Hawaii, and $3.565 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- U.S. Northern Marianas Islands: $4.329.  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- Tunisia: $2.913 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,332,690,445,701 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.
  66. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Today is Day 65 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be holding this prestigious NO-SHOW job and ‘no show’ she has.  No one has seen her anywhere near the southern border and so it goes.  Meanwhile, Texas Attorney General tells Newsmax that ‘Joe Biden’s border policies are a STIMULUS for the Mexican cartels.’  Moving on, outrage is growing over the federal government’s dumping of illegal aliens across the interior of the country- and even in Hawaii, according to Chefs Lilah and Itzi- in the dead of night.  Buses or airliners bring them in, dump them, and then take off lickety split.   According to Newsmax, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro “I Hate My Country” Mayorkas wants to welcome even more illegal aliens that what are already flooding across our border.  WTF?  Hunting licenses anyone?
  67. 2021 Wednesday G: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– According to news reports, Joe Biden has ordered U.S. spy agencies to prepare a definitive report on the origins of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  We suspect the final report will shill for the Chi-Coms and drop the blame somewhere else like, uh, say, on the U.S. military.  Remember when the Chi-Coms tried to blame the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s COVID-19 outbreak on U.S. military assets that somehow got it into communist China and let it go in Wuhan?  Incredible.  Still, there are morons who will indeed believe it.  Speaking of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, at a U.S. Senate hearing today, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, said that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci must testify about all the money given to that ‘medical institution.’  Hear-hear!  Elsewhere, Attorney General Eric Schmitt, R-MO, has launched a lawsuit against both the Chinese Communist Party and the Wuhan Institute of Virology over its costly mishandling of the Kung Flu Pandemic.  Excellent.  Finally, as the Chi-Vi lab leak theory appears more and more like the God’s honest truth, it has exposed that there are NO checks on the so-called ‘fact checkers.’  Hell, we knew that.
  68. 2021 Wednesday H: Business News– Wall Street’s new watchdog- SEC Chairman Gary Gensler- told Congress today that special scrutiny will fall on cryptocurrencies and on SPACs- special purpose acquisition companies.   In other business news, President Donald J. Trump says that when HE left office, the United States was ‘energy independent’ and that the U.S. was the number one exporter of energy to the rest of the world.  This occurred within the span of four years whereas now with feeble Joe Biden lurking about the White House, we are importing our energy supply and word has it that gasoline could soon hit $7 per gallon.   Revolution anyone?   Finally, Jeff Bezos is set to hand over Amazon’s CEO job on July 5, 2021.
  69. 2021 Wednesday I: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– Arizona has banned mass mailing of election ballots in all future elections.  Excellent.  As for the 2020 Elections audit in that state and in others, the scrutiny continues. 
  70. 2021 Wednesday J: Joe Biden Regime News I– Joe Biden continues his war on President Donald J. Trump.  Today, he purged FOUR Trump appointees[xviii] on the U.S. Commission for Fine Arts.  You go, Joe, you go.  In other regime news, critics are questioning the wisdom of the upcoming Joe Biden-Vladimir Putin summit.  (Note- we think Vladimir is going to bulldoze a drooling, feeble old Joe into a ditch and cover him up).  Elsewhere, the Biden regime sidestepped questions regarding as to whether the Chi-Coms would pay ANY PRICE for inflicting their Chi-Com pandemic upon the world.
  71. 2021 Wednesday K: Whacked-Out News Of The Day– The Dems are pushing for the spending of $7.1 trillion for all the crazy programs the losers are currently pushing.  This amount of money is more than the money spent fighting World War II and supplying our allies with the tools of war.  Why not just allow the Chi-Coms to buy our flipping country?
  72. 2021 Wednesday L: Political News I– a new AARP poll says that a vast majority of Americans over age 50 are staunchly opposed to any cutting back of Medicare and Social Security to pay for the massive amount of deficit spending going on under the Biden regime.  Who can blame them?  Elsewhere, a new CEI poll says that the public does NOT want to pay for massive Green New Deal spending which millions of Americans view as being little more than another transfer of wealth from those possessing it to those too lazy to go out and earn it.  Meanwhile, a judge smacks down the motion by CNN to dismiss the defamation lawsuit brought against them by esteemed legal scholar, professor, and attorney Dr. Alan Dershowitz. 
  73. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News II– President Donald J. Trump told Newsmax TV that ‘communist China took extremely diligent care of both Hunter and Joe Biden.  Amen.  Elsewhere, former Pennsylvania RINO senator and CNN babbling head Rick Santorum- a fellow who has run for the GOP presidential nomination on numerous occasions- says it’s ‘time to invest in real infrastructure spending.’  (Note- he was fired last week from CNN for having said something derogatory about Native Americans, so it appears he is attempting to remain relevant).   In other news, Kelley Paul told ‘Rand Paul haters’ that her husband and she have guns.  They are always under threat.  Next, former state prosecutor Aramis Ayala threw her hat in the ring to challenge Rep.  Val Demings, DS-FL 10th congressional district, in 2022.  Excellent.  Finally, crackpot Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. has convened a grand jury that will meet for six months seeking evidence into the crimes of President Donald J. Trump.  Yet another persecution by the fleas nipping at the ankles of the 45th president.
  74. 2021 Wednesday N: Political News III– Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, has formed a new PAC sparking rumors she may be running for the White House in 2024.  Next CNN’s Jeff Zucker says ‘it may have been wrong for Chris “The Curmudgeon” Cuomo to advise his older brother, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov, on his myriad sex scandals.  We thought a while back that CNN forbade the ‘Curmudgeon’ NOT to cover his gubernatorial brother yet advise him he did.  NO wonder CNN is a bogus ‘network.’  Meanwhile, unabashed supporter of President Donald J. Trump, Sean Parnell is running for the U.S. Senate seat in Pennsylvania, the one held by retiring RINO Senator Patrick Toomey.  
  75. 2021 Wednesday O: Political News IV– Next, David A. Chipman- Joe Biden’s nominee to head the ATF- says he ‘advocates for the arrest of every American who owns an AR-15 rifle.’ (Note- this doofus claimed during the Waco, Texas, Branch Davidian compound assault back during President Bill Clinton’s administration, that the Branch Davidians used TWO .50 caliber machine guns to shoot down TWO ATF helicopters which is a total flipping lie.  Never happened).  Finally, the U.S. Department of State shut down the investigation into what was occurring in Wuhan, China, an investigation to which, we alluded earlier as being ongoing because Joe Biden had ordered U.S. intel agencies to determine what the hell happened.  Crazy. Senator John Kennedy, R-LA, asked doctors on Capitol Hill as to WHY they spiked the previous administration’s investigation into getting answers to the 2019-2021 global Chi-Com pandemic.
  76. 2021 Wednesday P: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– the ALLEGED murderer of University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts- Cristhian Bahena Rivera- claimed at his murder trial today that ‘mystery men’ abducted the university student as she jogged along a road.  Camera evidence from the day she disappeared- July 18, 2018- showed that Rivera was closely following her in his car.  The POS illegal alien claims he did not do it but everyone sure as hell believes he did.   IF the illegal had not been in the country, this crime would not have occurred.  Execute him.
  77. 2021 Wednesday Q: Popular Culture News– New wolf killing laws have led to a push to revive U.S. protection laws for the wild beasts.  Next, actress Vanessa Redgrave is now distancing herself from the Kevin Spacey comeback film.  Elsewhere, U.S. Senate candidate Mark McCloskey, R-MO, quipped that when a ‘thug kills a cop, new coverage is completely different.’  True.  
  78. 2021 Wednesday R: Mass Shootings News– In the age of decrepit old Joe Biden, yet another mass casualty event took place today.  In San Jose, California, at a transit yard serving Silicon Valley, a shooter shot and killed at least coworkers and wounded numerous others.  Law enforcement arrived on scene, but the shooter took his own life before the cops could engage him.  The shooter has been identified as Samuel Cassidy, a 58-year-old maintenance worker at the station.  He had worked there for eight years and had some sort of beef with his fellow employees.
  79. 2021 Wednesday S: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– Lebanon, Ohio, becomes the 26th U.S. city around the country to declare itself a ‘sanctuary city,’ not for legions of seething, stinking illegal aliens but for the unborn in yet another blow to the Pro-Death Movement.[xix]
  80. 2021 Wednesday T: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto And Powerball Draws– Tonight, we have the Super Lotto Draw #3563 with a $49 million jackpot up for grabs and the Powerball Draw #849 with a $236 million pot on the line.  First, here are the results for the Super Lotto: 01, 06, 08, 23, 42, and Mega 12.  Out of 133,804 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $11,259 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at (1) Quik Stop in Vacaville, CA 95687 (2) Valley Liquors in Santa Ana, CA 92704 (3) Liquor Plus, La Mirada, CA 90638 and (4) Valero, Tustin, CA 92780.   Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw: 02, 08, 21, 34, 62, and Powerball 16.

[iii] We hope to promote the music of David Bowie within the next decades.

[iv] Spiders from Mars will occur around same time as the David Bowie presentation.

Trump- Rodney Mims Cook Jr., James C. McCrery II, and Duncan G. Stroik- still have their jobs although the axe may be coming for them, too.

  86. 2021 Thursday F: Foreign News / Overseas News– After Hamas has launched more than 1,500 rockets into civilian areas within Israel since Monday, it would appear that Israeli ground and air assets are crossing the border into the hellhole known as Gaza.  Moses Scharbug III, aka Mo- who now lives in Israel- says that it is a clash between civilization and darkness, a clash between light and barbarism and that the Israelis must crush these animalistic scum with every weapon possessed in their arsenal.  We all tend to agree.  Send these cockroaches howling into 1,000 years of darkness, naked and devastated.  The Israeli ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer says that ‘Hamas must be taught a lesson that it cannot murder Israelis with impunity.’  Amen.  We say, ‘use neutron bombs and eliminate these rats.’   
  87. 2021 Thursday G: Political News I– While Israel fights for its very survival, Anti-Semitic scum such as Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DS-MN 5th congressional district, and Rep. Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, DS-MI 13th congressional district, are more or less calling for her destruction by not providing her support in her hour of need.  As Mo says, ‘NO matter what the Democratic-Socialists say, God gave the land encompassed by Israel to Moses more than 2,000 years ago.  It was the homeland of the Jews and the only reason it was not because first the Romans and then the Muslims drove them off the land.  If one wants to talk about the ‘right of return,’ Jews have the first and ONLY right of return.’  Could not say it better ourselves.   Regarding these two Islamist congresswomen, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, confronted the head of the ‘suicide squad,’ Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez aka AOC aka Baby Evita aka Sandy Cortez (birth name), DS-NY 14th congressional district, and called her out over her support for ‘terrorists.’  
  88. 2021 Thursday H: Business News– The Biden Regime is doing a lot of chest-thumping over the fact that last week ONLY 473,000 new jobless claims were filed.  What they neglect to say is that there are 8,000,000 unfilled in jobs in the U.S., jobs that are NOT being filled because of the Biden’s regime edict that the unemployed receive MORE money sitting at home in their skivvies than they would if they were on the job.  (Note- we believe the Biden regime is doing this so as to whine in a few weeks that ‘to fill these empty jobs, illegal aliens will have to do the work Americans are unwilling to do.’  We’ve heard this tune before.
  89. 2021 Thursday I: Joe Biden Regime News I– Joe Biden’s $86 billion pension bailout plan is set to boost corporate bonds.  In related news, a House panel is backing a bill that will spend $8 billion to shift the United States Postal Service from gas-fueled vehicles to electric vehicles.  (Note- fascinating how coincidental the shutdown of the Colonial Pipeline running through 17 states and now the Dems are pushing for more electric vehicles than ever.  You realize that once everyone has EVs, they will be restricted to a certain radius because of charging station availability, the length of the charge, as well as the fact that electric cars are far more expensive, batteries harder to dispose of due to their toxicity, and the eventual pushing of everyone out of electric vehicles to public transit in much the same way we have Ubers).[xx]   
  90. 2021 Thursday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– As the Arizona state senate continues its investigation into the fraudulent 2020 Elections, investigators announce that the Maricopa County election officials WIPED the voting machines’ memories.  Here again is yet another reason as to why millions of Americans continue to believe that what happened in the days following November 03 were not legit.  And still, the Democrats continue crying and sniveling that anyone questioning the results of the 2020 Election is somehow a backwoods goober.  (Note- the evidence continues piling up by the day that November 03, 2020, was the worst example of elections fraud in the history of our great nation).
  91. 2021 Thursday K: Miscellaneous News I– Democrats are seeking a ban on military weapons making their way into the hands of local police departments.   Next, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov has hired criminal defense attorneys without saying if HE is paying for them or the Empire State will.  (Note- our bet is on the taxpayers of New York).  Speaking of worthless governors, Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom, DS-CA, says he will ‘END the mask mandate on June 15.’  (Note- too late, there ‘Smiler;’ no matter what you do, WE are recalling you).  Elsewhere, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, is trying to fight off potential challengers as she seeks to become the No. 3 in the GOP House leadership.  (Note- most of us would like to seen Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, or Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district, get the job).
  92. 2022 Friday: You know the drill…

130. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, MAY 10, 2022

This will be the greatest clash of armor and tactical aircraft the world has ever seen.

  59. 2005 Tuesday: In Tbilisi, Georgia, President George W. Bush gets the shock of his life while meeting with Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili when a terrorist throws a hand grenade at him.  However, the explosive device failed to detonate, and the lives of both men were spared.

  62. 2008 Saturday: Senator Barack Hussein Obama, D-IL, takes the lead in the superdelegate count- a very peculiar thing the Democrats have to steal nominations in presidential elections for their chosen candidate.  The first-term Illinois senator is smoking Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-NY.

  68. 2014 Saturday: According to Brainy History, Brazilian police distribute pamphlets to World Cup visitors with instructions on how to behave in the event of a robbery; law enforcement means the ‘advice’ to protect victims from injury or death during crime.

  71. 2017 Wednesday: To the delight of environmentalists everywhere, the U.S. Geological Service releases a study claiming that some glaciers in Montana have receded by 85-percent over the past half-century.  No wonder imbeciles such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez believe the world is coming to an end soon.  Sadly, the Sun is the sole driver of all climatic changes throughout the entire Solar System.  Conversation and fighting pollution is indeed important but the Earth- and other planets- have all gone through periods of climate change throughout the history of said Solar system.  Meanwhile, to the ‘horror’ of Democrats, President Donald J. Trump shares classified intelligence regarding an ISIS attack coming soon against Russia with Russian Ambassador Sergey Ivanovich Kislyak and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in the Oval Office.  (Hence, Trump-Russia ‘collusion’).
  72. 2018 Thursday: Following Iran firing missiles into Israel’s Golan Heights from Syria, the IDF lights up Iranian targets in Syria with 70 missiles, blowing up numerous installations and other military infrastructure.  Of course, Iran claims Israel started the fight.

  75. 2021 Monday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 159,527,685 confirmed cases, +549,998, 3,315,351  confirmed deaths, +8,678 and 138,098,049 confirmed recoveries, +71,473.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,506,648 confirmed cases, UP 22,997 from yesterday’s reporting, 596,116 confirmed deaths, UP 308,[viii] and 26,497,996 confirmed recoveries, UP 58,284.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ix]   
  76. 2021 Monday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden became President on January 20, 2021, there have been 280,304 chi-vi deaths in the United States- President Biden, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, the 46th president is shy 182,305 deaths.      
  77. 2021 Monday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,759,618 confirmed cases, 62,314 confirmed deaths, and 2,003,503 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,272,102 confirmed cases, 35,785 confirmed deaths, and 1,853,131 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 33,267 confirmed cases, 488 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 416,317 confirmed cases, 5,626 confirmed deaths, and 202,588 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Northern Marianas Islands, yet another place  the Democrats will want to transform into a state after D.C., Puerto Rico, Guam, and Virgin Islands become states: they have 170 confirmed cases, 2 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.[x]   
  78. 2021 Monday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 838,957 confirmed cases, 6,378 confirmed deaths, and 831,620 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Nigeria, a place overrun with far too many ‘princes’ all-in need of U.S. senior citizens’ life savings: 165,419 cases of the virus, 2,065 confirmed deaths and 156,297 confirmed recoveries.[xi]     
  79. 2021 Monday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,742.82, DOWN 34.92 points (-0.10%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,401.86, DOWN 350.38 points (-2.55%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,188.43, DOWN 44.17 points (-1.04%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $64.85 per barrel, -0.07 (-0.011%).  The price of GOLD is $1,835.50 per troy oz., -2.10 (-0.11%) while the price of SILVER is $27.37 per troy ounce, -0.12 (-0.44%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,249.50 per troy oz, -16.00 (-1.26%) while the price of COPPER is $4.70 per pound, -0.02 (-0.45%).[xii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,952.91 per troy oz, +26.40 (+0.90%).[xiii] The price of RHODIUM is $28,900.00 per troy oz., -400.00 (-1.37%).[xiv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.42 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.92.     In Seychellois Rupee, one greenback equals 15.18 and in Sierran Leonean Leone, a buck equals 10,154.00 and in Singapore Dollar, one dollar equals 1.33 of theirs.[xv]       
  80. 2021 Monday 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 $4.103 per gallon, $2.876 in Florida, $3.810 in Hawaii, and $3.514 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Pennsylvania: $3.088.  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- Sudan: $2.026 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,270,989,160,341 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  81. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Under President Biden’s lack of attention, the border continues being overrun by illegal aliens.  ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris is in her 48th day as the so-called ‘Border Czar’ and has yet to tour the region.   Meanwhile, reporters from various news agencies continue reporting on the nonstop flow of illegal aliens pouring into the country.  One reporter on Fox News Channel witnessed a group of 40 or more Venezuelans walking across the Rio Grande this morning.  Hence why we say the river should be seeded with alligator pups.  Why aren’t local authorities running miles of razor wire along the border under their authority?  Minefields, folks, minefields.
  82. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden Regime News I– Today, we learned that after four months ‘on the job,’ Joe Biden has left dozens of ambassadorships unfilled.  What’s up with that?  Next, President Biden restores ‘tranny health protections’ reversing yet another President Donald J. Trump policy.  In other questionable news, a new AP-NORC Poll says that President Biden’s ‘approval ratings’ are buoyed by his pandemic response.’  WTF?  The commander-in-chief has done flipping nothing to improve the lives of the American people.  Next, supposedly Joe Biden is meeting with GOP leaders at the pivotal point in his ‘deal-making.’  What deal-making?   Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, RINO-KY, says, ‘the GOP is willing to agree to $800 billion on infrastructure but not the $1.3 trillion’ demanded by Joe Biden’s handlers.
  83. 2021 Monday H: Chi-Com News I– New reports are surfacing that suggest the Chi-Coms planned to weaponize bat viruses such as COVID-19 back in 2015 to further their Chi-Com BS agenda.  Screw them.  Next, author Gordon Chang says that the Chi-Coms ‘committed mass murder of Americans using COVID-19 as their weapon.’  In other Chi-Com news, the communists are demanding- we repeat- DEMANDING- the U.N. cancel a hearing on Uighur Muslims.  (Note- the communists don’t want anyone to know about their Nazi-like efforts to liquidate the Uighur Muslims and other religious and ethnic minorities so the Han Chinamen can rule supreme.  F**k them).
  84. 2021 Monday I: Foreign News / Overseas News– Overnight in Israel, 80 people have been injured fighting Israeli authorities.  It’s Muslim celebration time and when they celebrate, they attack Israeli military, law enforcement, and even the citizens.  For the first time in history, Hamas has fired rockets, we repeat- ROCKETS- into Jerusalem, a place the morons claim is SACRED to them.  The Knesset had to evacuate, so great was the danger.  (Note- folks, this is why God gave the world the neutron bomb- like Hamas and the rest of the trash up NOW). Ramadan begins in two days and of course, the Palestinians are going to run amok.  Elsewhere, U.S. Coast Guard assets working in the Straits of Hormuz were forced to fire warning shots at pesky Iranian swift boats trying to harass U.S. assets.  Sink them.  
  85. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– The AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says, ‘there’s no doubt that the United States UNDERCOUNTED COVID-19 deaths.’  He also believes we must continue wearing masks into 2022.   Elsewhere in the world, once the COVID-19 curfews were lifted, people are now hosting and enjoying LARGE PARTIES.   Meanwhile, a new TIPP Poll says that the number of Americans who won’t take the vaccine has now risen to 26-percent.   Next, the FDA approves Pfizer-BioNTech’s Chi-Vi vaccine for use with 12-15-year-olds. In other Chi-Vi news, Wyoming joins the ranks of states to BAN COVID-19 ‘vaccine passports.’  Awesome.  Finally, many Catholic schools are having trouble in the times of COVID-19 keeping their doors open for students.
  86. 2021 Monday K: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– The Arizona 2020 Election Audit is off to a bad start as they cannot get their hands on the routers, the passwords, and other valuable information and tools so they can uncover the truth about the election many believe was STOLEN.  IF the Democrats have NOTHING to hide- then hand the requested stuff over to the investigators.   Meanwhile, Michigan is filing a lawsuit pleading evidence shows that votes in that state for President Donald J. Trump were flipped over to drooling old Joe “I’m a Racist” Biden.  Godspeed. 
  87. 2021 Monday L: Business News– Thanks to the stupidity of the Joe Biden regime, restaurants across the United States- including ours- are suffering due to a hiring crisis.  People make more money to sit at home on their asses than they do at work.  However, senile old Joe Biden did say that ‘if the unemployed don’t take jobs offered to them, they will lose their benefits.’  How does that work, Joe?  Employers aren’t going to people’s homes begging them to go to work.  What crap.  Speaking of the ‘generous unemployment benefits’ (until they run out and the country goes broke), Governor Spencer J. Cox, R-UT, says that the ‘added benefits are a disincentive.’  Amen.   Elsewhere, a California man was arrested for his $5 million PPP scam.  The dimwit spent the money on expensive sports cars.  The dumb ass is going to prison.  SOB.
  88. 2021 Monday M: National Security News– The Colonial oil pipeline shutdown enters its fourth day.  The 1,500-mile-long pipeline runs through 17 states.  Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district put out a tweet in which she said- more or less- that ’17 U.S. national security and intelligence agencies said there was NO interference in the 2020 Elections yet NONE of them had a clue that a pipeline running through 17 states was in danger of being hacked.’[xix]  Elsewhere, new information continues to arise showing that Hunter Biden may have had a close relationship with a Chi-Com female agent in much the same way as the slow-witted so-called ‘farter-in-chief’ Rep. Eric Swalwell, DS-CA 15th congressional district, had with Christine Fang, aka Fang-Fang, an operative of the Ministry of State Security, the MSS, an organization comparable to the KGB.  This woman sent Hunter Biden opposition research for his father’s 2020 presidential run.  Hmmm…
  89. 2021 Monday N: Political News I– Sadly, we learnt today just how compromised U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr was- he fought to keep flawed FBI Director Christopher Wray in his position.  Wow.  Next, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden’s TAX LIE has been exposed by rising inflation.  Speaking of Leader McCarthy, he backs Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, over GOP House Conference Chair Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, someone who can’t move on from January 06, 2021, and who won’t STFU about it.  She must GO.   Speaking of ‘Liz Cheney,’ U.S. Army Colonel Denton Knapp, Retired, is running for the windbag’s seat in 2022.  Elsewhere, Rep. James “Influence” Clyburn, D-SC 6th congressional district, says he is ‘willing to consider police reform without ending qualified immunity for law enforcement officers.’  Hmmm.  We shall see.
  90. 2021 Monday O: Political News II– President Donald J. Trump is endorsing Lt. Governor Dan Patrick, R-TX, for re-election.  Next, after the world learned that Kentucky Derby winner Medina Spirit ‘was doped,’ the 45th president pointed out that crap such as this is emblematic of the way the United States is going.  We agree.  Meanwhile, Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, says that ‘Joe Biden bears full responsibility for the LOW JOBS report of last week.’
  91. 2021 Monday P: Social Media News And Big Tech News– Numerous state attorney generals are seeking to stop Instagram’s ‘children’s accounts’ where the social media app can monitor and influence children’s minds.  We concur.  Later today, the FBI has confirmed that Darkside did indeed hack the Colonial pipeline.
  92. 2021 Monday Q: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Rep. Jerry Carl, R-AL 1st congressional district, told Newsmax that ‘the United States is distracted by WOKE.’  Amen.  Next, NBC is dropping the Golden Globes in 2022 over a diversity snafu. 
  93. 2021 Monday R: Miscellaneous News I– Quarterback Tim Tebow has signed a one-year deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars.  Soon, we will hear sobbing and wailing from fans of communist Colin “The Communist” Kaepernick whom NO ONE still will employ.  Boohoo.   Next, the IOC president called off a trip to Tokyo due to the ‘VID outbreak that just won’t go away there.   Meanwhile, Tucker Carlson broke the news of the DEEP TIES between the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci and his U.S. taxpayer funding of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the birthplace of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  The question he raises is WHY the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci is not the subject of a criminal investigation or why he isn’t sitting in the hot seat before Congress getting his balls grilled off by concerned representatives and senators?  Damned good question.  The fact that the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci’s department helped FUND this debacle means he should be doing challenging time in the slammer NOW.  Is this what the Democrats are willing to do to destroy a highly popular president such as Donald J. Trump?  Shocking.
  94. 2021 Monday S: Whacked-Out News Of The Day– Nonagenarian House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi has been blasted over her inability to distinguish one black baseball player from another.   It has come to light that when the aging speaker afflicted with dementia sent out birthday greetings to famed San Francisco Giants slugger, Willie Mays, for his 90th birthday (May 06, 1931),  she put out a picture of her and another dingbat with Giants player Willie McCovey who died on October 31, 2018.  When a big uproar descended upon her aging back, she had the temerity to blame a staffer for her failure to determine one black baseball legend from another.  Ain’t that how it always goes?  (Note- Nance, you truly should consider retirement and we mean YESTERDAY, not today).
  95. 2022 Tuesday: You know the drill…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The sophomore effort by the Beach Boys- “Surfin’ USA”- came out on March 25, 1963, and featured the same lineup of Brian Wilson (bass, piano, and vocals), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Carl Wilson (lead guitar and vocals), Mike Love (vocals), and David Marks (rhythm guitar and vocals).  This album continued the new group’s rise to the top via tunes such as the title track, “Farmer’s Daughter,” and “Shut Down.”  The Beach Boys were not content to ride the wave with just one genre of music, i.e., surf music, as numerous copycats were jumping aboard the surf train.  They also were delving into their love of hot rods, hot chicks, and wild times in So-Cal.  Hawthorne, California, would never be the same nor would the world.  We hope you will seek this one out and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

[xix] Here is what WE think: like the Deepwater Horizon oil platform in the Gulf of Mexico blew up back in 2010, at the time many of us had our suspicions that the Obama-Biden administration had some foreknowledge of that event and used to shut down offshore oil drilling for years.  They shut down drilling off our coasts but allowed the rigs to relocate off the coast of Brazil to drill for oil down there.  Likewise, we think the Russian-backed Darkside hacking group shut this extremely important pipeline so as (1) to cut the amount of oil in the country; (2) to drive up the costs of oil and oil-based products; and (3) to help hasten the bullshit Green New Deal through to being.  Mark our words- Olaf Bologolo.

  73. 2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is dumping yet another Trump-era rule regarding the border, this one being that the collection of biometric data from illegal aliens along the border will now cease.  Thank you, Secretary Mayorkas.  (Note- and people wonder WHY everyone is buying firearms).  Speaking of Secretary Mayorkas, he lied to reporters earlier when he said that the numbers of illegals trying to cross into the country has gone way down and that the number of illegal alien minors has also decreased.
  74. 2021 Saturday G: Political News I– The U.S. Department of Justice has reaffirmed the war on ghost guns and will keep Joe Biden’s promise to enact sweeping gun reform (meaning gun control laws.  And they wonder as to WHY so many of us are buying guns, ammos, and accessories like flash and sound suppressants).  Next, census data shows that California’s population fell by more than 182,000 people in 2020 as people were fleeing the state in droves.  Speaking of California, now that it is becoming clear NO ONE wants Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom to remain as governor of the Golden State, the lightbulb has finally gone off over the dimwit’s head- he is now trying to do anything to save his job including making threats against all signers of the RECALL PETITION.  F**k you, Governor Newsom.

  77. 2021 Saturday J: Miscellaneous News I– The largest pipeline of gasoline in the United States- the 1,500-mile Colonia Pipeline- was shut down by unknown hackers.  Sounds like environmentalists did this.   Next, in the glorious city of New York, a woman and her three-year-old child were shot.  SHOT.  Elsewhere, Ernest Angley, a ‘controversial televangelist has died at the ripe old age of 99.  Finally, the religion of peace strikes again near a girls school in Kabul, Afghanistan, sending at least 30 people off to meet with Allah sooner than they planned and injuring loads of others.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The fourth album by the Band- “Cahoots”- came out on September 15, 1971 and would see the band beginning to slide a bit from the pinnacle they rapidly had climbed over the preceding years.  The album contained one bona fide hit- “Life is a Carnival”- but would not chart as well as the preceding three.  The band features the same quintet of Rick Danko (bass, vocals, and fiddle), Robbie Robertson (guitars and vocals), Levon Helm (drums, percussion, vocals, mandolins, and tambourines), Richard Manuel (pianos, organs, and vocals), and Garth Hudson (keyboards and saxophones). What we have for you today is the “Stage Fright 50th Anniversary Edition” (where the hell does the time go?), a deluxe version that came out on October 22, 2021.  We hope you will seek it out wherever you shop for the best in music because we love it and know that you will, too, especially with all the add-ons one gets as a bonus to the original tracks.  Enjoy.

  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.
  72. 2011 Saturday: At Abbottabad, Pakistan, U.S. Special Forces’ Seal Team Six locate and kill the most wanted terrorist in the world, Osama bin Laden along with several others who attempted to defend him.   Late in the evening, U.S. President Barack Obama announces that American military operatives killed Osama bin Laden, founder of the militant Islamist group Al-Qaida.  Former President George W.

  78. 2017 Monday: Musician Billy Corgan of Smashing Pumpkins fame announces he will purchase the National Wrestling Alliance.   Elsewhere, Kim Jong Un goes berserk as the U.S. flies two B-1B heavy bombers over the Korean Peninsula causing the ‘Brave Leader’ to bellow that the Trump administration is preparing for nuclear war against his country.  Meanwhile, what’s Paris, France, without RIOTS on May Day?  That’s what they get as mobs of protesters- supposedly preparing for upcoming elections- run amok in the streets causing riot police to fire tear gas and rubber bullets into the seething crowd.
  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!
  82. 2021 Saturday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 152,785,811 confirmed cases, +786,224, 3,205,782  confirmed deaths, +12,547, and 130,723,338 confirmed recoveries, +86,191.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,145,766 confirmed cases, UP 41,792 from yesterday’s reporting, 590,704 confirmed deaths, UP 661,[x] and 25,777,864 confirmed recoveries, UP 67,805.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[xi] 
  83. 2021 Saturday A: Note: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, there have been 276,082 CHI-VI deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, in another 281.6 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 404,812 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 185,892 deaths. 
  84. 2021 Saturday 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: 3,744,182 confirmed cases, 61,865 confirmed deaths, and 1,992,932 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,238,937 confirmed cases, 35,239 confirmed deaths, and 1,799,224 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 32,468 confirmed cases, 483 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 406,753 confirmed cases, 5,563 confirmed deaths, and 191,652 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s recovery numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., New Hampshire, a once reliable DEEP RED state before the Democratic-Socialists corrupted it: they have 95,163 confirmed cases, 1,304 confirmed deaths, and 91,400 confirmed recoveries.[xii]   Meanwhile, CNN is reporting that the U.S. has managed to secure ONE BILLION DOSES of Chi-Vi vaccines which has led medical ethicists to suggest we should share them with the world.  Please do.  We don’t want them.  Elsewhere, BOTH Joe Biden and the GOP is trying to push the American people to get the shots.  This reminds us of when the U.S. military was forcing the troops to get injections with which to combat anthrax before invading Iraq and many service personnel had issues with the vaccines.  NOT for us.   Speaking of Joe Biden, he continues masking up even though the Centers for Disease Control now say that we don’t other than on specific occasions. 
  85. 2021 Saturday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 838,481 confirmed cases, 6,363 confirmed deaths, and 830,625 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Armenia, perhaps the greatest of all Christian countries in the Middle East/Central Asia: 216,586 cases of the virus, 4,128 confirmed deaths and 199,155 confirmed recoveries.[xiii]     
  86. 2021 Saturday D:  Friday’s Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,874.85, DOWN 185.51 points (-0.54%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,962.98, DOWN 119.86 points (-0.85%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,181.17, DOWN 30.30 points (-0.72%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $63.49 per barrel, -0.09 (-0.14%).  The price of GOLD is $1,768.80 per troy oz., +1.10 (+0.06%) while the price of SILVER is $25.92 per troy ounce, +0.06 (+0.24%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,203.90 per troy oz, -1.30 (-0.11%) while the price of COPPER is $4.46 per pound, -0.01 (-0.27%).[xiv]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,934.50 per troy oz, -17.48 (-0.59%).[xv] The price of RHODIUM is $28,500.00 per troy oz., +150.00 (+0.51%).[xvi]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.22.     In Moldovan Leu, one greenback equals 17.64 and in Mongolian Tögrög, a buck equals 2,820.00 and in Moroccan Dirham, one dollar equals 8.93 of theirs.[xvii]  
  87. 2021 Saturday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.034 per gallon, $2.783 in Florida, $3.797 in Hawaii, and $3.466 in Washington state.[xviii]    Let’s look at one other location- Nebraska: $2.815.  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 sixth lowest gasoline price in the world- Kazakhstan: $1.576 per U.S. Gallon.[xix]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,236,690,578,042 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xx]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  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? 
  93. 2021 Saturday K: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto And Powerball Draws–  First, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3556 with a $43 million jackpot on the line: 01, 06, 13, 22, 31, and Mega 13.  Out of 136,144 winning tickets, 23 people had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $945 apiece.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #842 with a $129 million jackpot up for the taking: 35, 36, 47, 61, 63, and Powerball 03.  Out of 64,388 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $17,331 apiece.
  94. 2021 Saturday L: CRIME AND PUNISHMENT NEWS / LAW ENFORCEMENT NEWS- In Chicago, Illinois, today a 28-year-old psychopath- Elijah Rule Hill Prince- attacked a man in the 10500 block of South Emerald Avenue who refused to purchase something the punk said he was selling.  This led to Mr. Prince leaping onto the man, putting him into a chokehold, hitting him in the face with a shovel, biting off chunks of his ears, biting his scalp open, gouging out his eyes including one in which he used a portion of a wooden stake which he then drove into the man’s socket.  As his victim lay gasping for breath, Mr. Prince then spit into his gaping mouth.  The victim’s wife rushed out to help her husband and Mr. Prince then bit off humongous portions of her ears, gouged out her eyes, beat her, and spit on her before ambling away leaving his victims in the street.  The cops eventually found the sociopath, arrested him, and currently he is being held on $5 million bond.  When asked about the blood that was all over him, Mr. Prince said it was the “Blood of peasants.” Folks, this is someone the cops should have shot dead on the spot.  All you anti-cop people out there, stop f**king sniveling.
  95. 2022 Sunday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole– 513,618,603 confirmed cases, +278,391, 6,261,800 confirmed deaths, +1,080 and 467,851,535 confirmed recoveries, +574,003.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 571,561 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 206,806 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in SIXTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 466 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.

[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.
