219. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, AUGUST 07, 2022

IF you want to end monkeypox in the United States, close the bathhouses, the gay bars, park restrooms, and encourage the homo men to return to practicing safe sex, if not chastity. Without the so-called ‘gay gene’ being discovered- and believe you me, they are searching high and low for it- homosexuality is 99.99999-percent choice, not a matter of birth. Will people be mad at us? Sure, but we don’t give a flying hoot because it is important to always speak the truth.

  55. 2018 Tuesday: The Mendocino Fire overtakes the 2017 Thomas Fire as California’s worst wildfire ever as it is credited with scorching more than 290,600 acres. The reason for these out-of-control wildfires in the Golden State is poor forest management by state authorities. They would rather kiss the rear-ends of environmentalist groups than to do what is right by the people of the state- the U.S. citizens, which is. Meanwhile, the ‘democratic’ People’s Republic of China bans the Disney movie, “Christopher Robin” (from Winnie the Pooh fame) because the character had the audacity to mock the communist thug running the country, Xi Jinping.

  57. 2020 Friday: Prior to President Donald J. Trump’s visit to Ohio the previous day, Republican Governor Mike DeWine claimed to have had a positive test for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu. Today, his office declared it to be a false alert, that he did NOT have the Wuhan Virus. Well, we know that Governor DeWine is a RINO and that he does not want to appear with President Trump so there you go. What a shame. Meanwhile, employment statistics for the month of July show a net gain of 1.763 million new jobs filled, that unemployment in the country had dropped to 10.2 percent and that of all the jobs gained, one-third of them were in the leisure and hospitality industry. Unemployment for all categories is down but especially for black and Hispanic Americans. No matter what the Democrats do, they cannot cripple the economy. Elsewhere, New York Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo says that schools in the Empire State will reopen in the fall for all students. Finally, “Pro-China Joe” Biden continues trying to clarify his statements from earlier in the week that he is ‘not a racist’ and that he ‘loves black folks.’  Uh, okay, Joe, okay. We KNOW you are a racist and that since your earliest days in the U.S. Senate, you have backed every segregationist move that came your way. Enough is enough, already!
  58. 2020 Friday A: Various teachers’ unions around the country continue sniveling and whining about ‘how dangerous it is for them to return to the classrooms in the fall due to Wuhan Virus Crisis concerns,’ to which, we say, “IF you can’t do it, then step the hell aside and allow others to do the job” as well as urge President Trump to find ways by which to terminate all teachers who will not return to the classrooms.  We must find ways by which, we can crush public sector employees’ unions because this is bulls**t. Besides, teachers’ unions want to defund cops, make the Green New Deal real, and all manner of left-wing socialist crap. However, one way by which, we can make sure the kids and teachers can socially distant is to DEPORT ALL ILLEGAL ALIENS AND THEIR KIDS and you will find classrooms 50-percent vacant. DO THIS NOW! Never let a good crisis like the Chinese Virus go to waste, DEPORT ALL ILLEGALS BUT ESPECIALLY THEIR KIDS! Once done, the test scores of American children will skyrocket as they will not have to restrict their pace to that of the ignorant illegals.  Meanwhile, news hits that the Democratic Party does NOT want the “Baby Evita,” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Sandy Cortez, aka AOC, to speak at their upcoming convention. Who can blame them? The girl is bat crap stupid! Elsewhere, the Democrats in Congress continue demanding a $3 trillion COVID-19 relief bill atop the previous trillion dollars spent on this Chi-Com lab-engineered pandemic. If anyone should be $3 trillion, it should be the Democratic Party’s masters in Beijing!
  59. 2020 Friday B: The president of Lebanon- Michel Aoun- announces that one of two things sparked the ginormous explosion that toppled much of the port section of Beirut on Tuesday: human error or human intent. He asked the president of France for help in determining if a missile or an aircraft in the vicinity might somehow have caused the godawful explosion that has killed close to two hundred people, injured 4,000 or more, as well as caused the disappearances of numerous others. The AICPENDBLOG.COM believes it was an Iranian weapons cache that a moron dropped a cigarette butt into, or the Israeli Mossad took action to stop a Hezbollah (we put nothing past POS murderer Hassan Nasrallah) or Hamas’s plot against them.
  60. 2020 Friday C: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- here are today’s Chi-Com Virus Statistics for the globe: 19,160,806 confirmed cases, UP by 407,889 cases, 716,083 confirmed deaths, UP by 9,741 deaths, and 11,605,114 confirmed recoveries, UP by 303,093 recoveries.

  63. 2020 Friday F: Joe Biden’s overall national poll has dropped to a lead of 6.8 percent over President Donald J. Trump. Meanwhile, President Donald Trump announces he will extend unemployment benefits to the end of the year. He says he will forgo school loan repayments for the time being and that evictions will be put on hold until sometime in the fall. He also announces aid for Lebanon in the aftermath of what appears more likely to have been a terrorist attack in that beautiful nation. President Trump also says- yet again- that the Dept. of Homeland Security is ready, willing, and able to go into Portland, Oregon, and end the seventy-six straight days of rioting that has been trashing that once beautiful city. It is clear that Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler is in league with the Marxist scum. We say, “Send in former Blackwater Special Ops and WHACK ‘em!”

  71. 2021 Saturday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– As Joe Biden continues stumbling around like a deranged lunatic suffering from the DTs, Texas Judge Richard Cortez is calling out the head of the regime for ignoring his invitation to visit the southern border and to witness the disaster Dictator Biden has caused.  Meanwhile, we learn (and we do not believe this for a minute) but a new report says that the Biden regime is flying illegal alien families down into Mexico.  We do not believe this for a moment.

  74. 2021 Saturday J: Political News I– Rep. Bob Gibbs, R-OH 7th CD, is asking the House Republican leadership to begin impeachment hearings on slobbering Joe Biden.  Next, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, is blasting the $1.3 trillion ‘infrastructure bill’ and warns that it is going to lead to a horrible uptick in inflation for the American people.  Meanwhile, President Donald J.

  77. 2021 Saturday M: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3584 what with a $14 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner.  Here are the numbers: 02, 09, 12, 20, 39, and Mega 05.  Out of 103,399 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE NUMBERS plus the Mega for a prize of $14,000,000.  The lucky winner bought the winning ticket at Valero in Highland, CA 92346.  Then, there were three people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $11,607 apiece.  Those tickets were sold at (1) 7-Eleven in Roseville, CA 95678; (2) Chevron in Bakersfield, CA 93313; and ARCO AM/PM in Calexico, CA 92231.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #870 with a jackpot of $226 million up for grabs: 07, 24, 36, 54, 60, and Power 23.  Out of 89,466 winning tickets, the highest winners were sixty-nine people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $367 apiece.
  78. 2022 Sunday: Folks, we are recording the latest Chi-Vi and monkeypox cases for presentation in 2023 but let us say this about the monkeypox: the fact that it is mostly an STD among gay men lessens our concern for the ‘victims.’  IF you want to end monkeypox in the United States, close the bathhouses, the gay bars, park restrooms, and encourage the homo men to return to practicing safe sex, if not chastity.  Without the so-called ‘gay gene’ being discovered- and believe you me, they are searching high and low for it- homosexuality is 99.99999-percent choice, not a matter of birth.  Will people be mad at us?  Sure, but we don’t give a flying hoot because it is important to always speak the truth.  A century from now- if our country still survives- generations then will look back on now as being a time of rampant lunacy, one that afflicted many otherwise sane people.  Look at transgenderism: that’s bullshit.  The fact that young people are being physically disfigured for life tells us at some point those mentally ill people are going to come back to their enablers and begin murdering them for having destroyed their lives via giving in to the ‘fad of the day.’  Let us return to common sense instead of nursing at the nasty teats of liberalism and reclaim our nation.  Chef Hector Santanamos “El Chilote” De Soto.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0915 a 16” x 20” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Sunset and Verbenas.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclee, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

You know the drill: when a group has been around as long as the Beach Boys, the archives are jam-packed material thus we have yet another compilation released on May 19, 2009: “Summer Love Songs.”  What one finds here are the following tunes: (1) “Don’t Worry Baby” (2) “Why Do Fools Fall in Love” (3) “Wouldn’t It Be Nice” (4) “God Only Knows” (5) “Surfer Girl” (6) “California Girls” (7) “Please Let Me Wonder” (8) “In the Parking Lot” (9) “Your Summer Dream” (10) “Kiss Me Baby” (11) “Hushabye” (12) “I’m So Young” (13) “Good to My Baby” (14) “Fallin’ in Love” (15) “Time to Get Alone” (16) “Our Sweet Love” (17) “Help Me, Rhonda” (18) “Keep an Eye on Summer” (19) “Don’t Talk (Put Your Head on the Shoulder)” and (20) “Girls on the Beach.”  IF you have not yet brought the music of fun-sun-surf-hot chicks, fast cars, motorcycles, and all the rest of the music that made our summers so much delicious fun back in the 1960s and 1970s and even beyond, this is the way in which new fans and old-timers like us to accomplish this necessary task.

195. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, JULY 14, 2022

2017 Friday: A Russian-American lobbyist said he attended a June 2016 meeting with President Donald J. Trump’s son that was billed as part of a Russian-government effort to help the Republican campaign. In 2022, all of this would proven to be Democrat Party engineered bullshit. We also believe that the Chi-Coms and the flipping Canucks had a hand in this scam and we hope one day, they pay a tremendous price for their perfidy. We would love to see the Chi-Coms nuked off the face of the planet.

TODAY IN HISTORY @ THE AICPENDBLOG.COM @ WORDPRESS.COM

SUMMER SESSION 2022

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 120

195. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, JULY 14, 2022:

Bastille Day (France)

President Gerald R. Ford; famed session drummer Andy Newmark, the Byrds featuring Clarence White, the J. Geil’s Band featuring Stephen Jo Bladd, Steve Miller of the Steve Miller Band, and Traffic featuring Jim Gordon:

  1. 939 Tuesday: The reign of the 127th Roman Catholic Pope Stephen VIII begins on this date.  He would serve as the Vicar of Christ from today until October 30, 942.
  2. 1430 Wednesday: The Burgundians hand over their prisoner, Joan of Arc—whom they captured in May—to Pierre Cauchon, the bishop of Beauvais for trial.
  3. 1456 Monday: At the Battle of Belgrade, the Hungarians defeat the Ottoman Empire, sending them into headlong retreat.  It is a stunning victory by Christian forces over the Satanic Muslim scum seeking to topple European Christianity and to replace it with their crazed jihadist faith.  Crucify them all, Hungarians, just like Vlad the Impaler!
  4. 1520 Wednesday: The Battle of Otumba, Mexico, occurs as Conquistadors under the command of Hernando Cortez and their Native American allies attack the Aztecs.  The Spanish are determined to destroy Mexico City and to then put the Aztec scum to the sword.
  5. 1714 Saturday: At the Battle of Aland, the Russian fleet overpowers and beats a much-larger Swedish fleet.
  6. 1789 Tuesday: During the opening moments of the fledgling French Revolution, citizens of Paris stormed the Bastille Prison and released the seven prisoners inside after killing the Swiss garrison and the military governor.  This would lead to a left-wing takeover of the country with the people eradicating their enemies- real and imagine- at breakneck pace.  In 1917, the Bolsheviks in Russia would follow a similar track like the scumbags Antifa and Black Lives Matter are in the United States from 2020 onward.  The only good leftist is a dead leftist.  Remember: you heard it here first.
  7. 1798 Saturday: The Alien and Sedition Act of the United States prohibits “false, malicious and scandalous’ writings about the U.S. government.  The bogus Joe Biden regime in 2022 is following a similar path as it seeks to silence its enemies. 
  8. 1845 Monday: A fire in New York City burns down 1,000-plus homes and kills many citizens.
  9. 1853 Thursday: Commodore Matthew Perry relayed to Japanese officials a letter from President Millard Fillmore (Whig) requesting trade relations.  However, by the time the Commodore delivered the letter, President Fillmore’s term in office had already expired.  Meanwhile, the first World’s Fair opens at the Crystal Palace in New York City.
  10. 1868 Tuesday: Alvin J. Fellows patented the tape measure on this date.
  11. 1881 Thursday: Outlaw William H. Bonney Jr., alias “Billy the Kid,” was shot and killed by Sheriff Pat Garret in Fort Sumner in present-day New Mexico.
  12. 1911 Friday: Harry N. Atwood became the first pilot to land an airplane—a Wright Model B airplane—on the grounds of the White House after flying in from Boston; he was greeted by President William Howard Taft.  
  13. 1912 Sunday: American folk singer-songwriter Woody Guthrie- “This Land is Your Land”- was born in Okemah, Okla., on this date. 
  14. 1913 Monday: Gerald R. Ford—future Republican 40th vice president and 38th president of the United States—was born on this date in Omaha, Nebraska.
  15. 1914 Tuesday: Robert H. Goddard patented liquid rocket fuel.
  16. 1921 Thursday: Italian-born anarchists Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti were convicted in Dedham, Massachusetts, of murdering a shoe company paymaster and his guard.  The pair paid the ultimate price, being executed six years later by the state.
  17. 1933 Friday: The National Socialist Party (NAZI) becomes the ONLY political party allowed in Germany.  By the way, according to Chef Tiresias at the AICP-END Blog, the Nazi Party is a leftwing creature and not one belonging to the right, hence the word ‘socialist’ contained within its title.  Nazism is race-based/crony capitalism socialism whereas communism is class-based socialism and fascism is nationalism combined with corporatism and the accumulation of wealth at the point of a gun.
  18. 1934 Saturday: Babe Ruth hits his 700th home run.
  19. 1938 Thursday: Italian Fascist dictator Benito Mussolini “Il Duce,” publishes a manifesto against both Jews and Africans.  While somewhat ambivalent on the question of Jews, being colleagues with German Fuhrer Adolf Hitler forces his hand whereas Africans are in the way of his recreation of the Roman Empire, Africa being the prime target of his globalist ambitions.
  20. 1941 Monday: In World War II Lithuania, the Nazis murder 6,000 Jews.  Across the western portion of the Soviet Union from the north from Finland south to the drive to Rostov, the Axis juggernaut continues rolling up the Red Army.
  21. 1942 Tuesday: Encouraged by the Nazis, anti-Semitic riots break out across occupied Amsterdam.  Elsewhere, Stephen Jo Bladd—future longtime drummer with the hard-rocking blues band, the J. Geil’s Band [i]—is born on this date in Boston, Massachusetts.    
  22. 1943 Wednesday: Although the main battle surrounding the Kursk bulge has petered out for the Germans, Army Group South continues attacking along the southern line of the massive salient while the Red Army is counterattacking in the direction of Orel.  The Germans cannot fall into headlong retreat as a secondary defensive line is not really ready for them to do so, thus they have to maintain pressure on the Soviets lest everything implodes.
  23. 1944 Friday: Heavy fighting continues on the Eastern Front as the Soviets continue their drive to liberate Belorussia and other western portions of the USSR.  The Germans continue parrying their thrusts with diminishing reserves but there are so many thrusts that it is becoming impossible for the Germans and their few remaining allies to stabilize the front.  Meanwhile in France, the Allies continue building up strength for the dash to liberate France.  Can the Fuhrer produce the miracle weapons he continues telling the German people will win the war?
  24. 1945 Saturday: During World War II, the USS South Dakota is the first American warship to bombard Japan from offshore.  Meanwhile, former Axis partner Italy declared war on its former ally, Imperial Japan, on this date.  Famed future session drummer Jim Gordon who would play with the British rock band, Traffic[ii], and with Eric Clapton[iii] before murdering his mother and going to prison was born on this date in Los Angeles, California.
  25. 1946 Sunday: The book that would change the world was published on this date: “Common Sense Book of Baby and Child Care” by Dr. Benjamin Spock.
  26. 1948 Wednesday: During their War of Independence, the Israeli Air Force bombs Cairo, Egypt.  Not expecting anything like this, the Egyptian people run amok in the streets.
  27. 1949 Thursday: The Soviet Union explodes its first atom bomb.  This would cause consternation across the world. 
  28. 1950 Friday: In Port Chester, New York, future session drummer Andy Newmark is born.  This man would play with practically everyone at one time or another such as Ronnie Wood, Eric Clapton, Carly Simon, Sly & the Family Stone, George Benson, Gary Wright, and far too many more to catalog here.
  29. 1951 Saturday: A monument honoring Dr. George Washington Carver is unveiled to the public in Joplin, Missouri.  This is the first national park in the United States to honor an African American.  
  30. 1953 Tuesday: The North Koreans/Communist Chinese launch a major offensive in Korea.  After much heavy fighting, the UN forces led by the United States will throw the communist scum back yet again.
  31. 1958 Monday: The army of Iraq overthrew the monarchy imposed on the nation following World War II.
  32. 1964 Tuesday: In a speech to the Republican National Convention in San Francisco, supporters of Senator Barry Goldwater, R-AZ, booed New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller as he called on the GOP to denounce political extremists.
  33. 1965 Wednesday: The American space probe Mariner 4 flew by Mars and sent back photographs of the planet.
  34. 1966 Thursday: The city of Chicago awoke to shocking news that eight student nurses had been murdered during the night in a South Side dormitory.  A jury later convicted criminal drifter Richard Speck and a judge sentenced him to death.  However, another judge later reduced his sentence to life in prison where the son-of-a-bitch died in 1991.
  35. 1968 Sunday: While playing for the Atlanta Braves, “Hammering Hank” Aaron hits his 500th career home run in a game against the San Francisco Giants.  In the third inning, Giants’ pitcher Mike McCormick offered up a juicy fastball and “Hammering Hank” made him pay.  He became the 8th player in Major League Baseball to achieve this amazing milestone.
  36. 1973 Saturday: Phil Everly storms offstage at a concert declaring an end to the Everly Brothers[iv].  Elsewhere, Clarence White—famed lead guitarist with the Byrds[v]—died after a drunken driver hit him in the parking lot at the Whisky A-Go-Go in Palmdale, CA.
  37. 1976 Wednesday: At the Democrat Party’s National Convention in New York City, Governor Jimmy Carter of Georgia wins the presidential nomination.  (Note- until senile Joe Biden comes along in 2020, President Jimmy Carter would have the dubious distinction of holding the title of ‘worst president ever.’  Barack Obama cannot hold this title being an illegitimate president: he was NOT a U.S. citizen).  
  38. 1977 Thursday: The U.S. House of Representatives establishes a permanent select committee on intelligence.  They should bring back the committee investigating un-American activities.
  39. 1980 Monday: The Republican National Convention opened in Detroit, where nominee-apparent Ronald Reagan told a welcoming rally he and his supporters were determined to “make America great again,” which he did after eight years in office.
  40. 1985 Sunday: The last USFL football game takes place with the Baltimore Stars beating the Oakland Invaders by a score of 28-24.
  41. 1986 Monday: Richard W. Miller becomes the first FBI agent convicted of espionage charges.
  42. 1987 Tuesday: Guitarist Steve Miller receives a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame.
  43. 1998 Tuesday: Los Angeles sued 15 tobacco companies for $2.5 billion over the dangers of secondhand smoke.
  44. 1999 Wednesday: Race-based school bussing in Boston ended after 25 years, much to the relief of everyone involved in the stupid mess.
  45. 2003 Monday: Newspaper columnist Robert Novak publicly revealed the CIA employment of Valerie Plame, wife of Joseph Wilson, a former U.S. ambassador in Africa had twisted prewar intelligence on Iraq.  Of course, Wilson and his wife were Democratic Party deep state hacks intent on causing as many problems for the George W. Bush administration as possible.
  46. 2004 Wednesday: The U.S. Senate scuttled a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage.  Forty-eight senators voted to advance the measure, 12 shy of the required 60 while 50 voted to block it.
  47. 2009 Monday: The iTunes Music Store reaches 1.5 billion applications downloaded.  Meanwhile at her Senate confirmation hearing, Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor pushed back vigorously against Republican charges that she would bring bias and a liberal- Obama- agenda to the nation’s highest court.  Since her time on the bench, it definitely appears that the fears of the GOP were true.
  48. 2010 Wednesday: In the 18th annual ESPY awards, New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees and skier Lindsay Vonn win, the male and female athlete awards, respectively.
  49. 2011 Thursday: Neptune completes its first orbit around the sun since being discovered in 1846.
  50. 2013 Sunday: In Iraq, a suicide attacker detonated a massive car bomb at a checkpoint near the British Embassy and the interim government’s headquarters in Baghdad, killing 11 people.  Elsewhere, the Mexican Army captures Miguel Trevino Morales, commander of the dreaded “Los Zetas’ drug cartel.  Finally, thousands of demonstrators across the country, ginned up by the news media, protested a Florida jury’s decision the day before to clear George Zimmerman in the shooting death of black teen, Trayvon Martin.
  51. 2014 Monday:  Hamas rejects a peace deal brokered by Egypt and agreed to by Israel; Israel warned that the rejection could result in military action to stop rocket attacks from Palestinian militants.  Meanwhile, the Church of England voted overwhelmingly in favor of allowing women to become bishops. 
  52. 2015 Tuesday: After journeying 3 billion miles, NASA’s New Horizons space probe reestablishes contact with NASA and begins transmitting the first photos of Pluto and its five moons.  Launched in 2006, the probe will continue transmitting data for the next 16 months.   
  53. 2016 Thursday: Terror struck Bastille Day celebrations in the French Riviera city of Nice as a heavy truck plowed into the festive crowd, killing 86 people in an attack the scumbags of the Islamic State claimed as one of their own; police shot the jihadist driver dead.
  54. 2017 Friday: A Russian-American lobbyist said he attended a June 2016 meeting with President Donald J. Trump’s son that was billed as part of a Russian-government effort to help the Republican campaign.  In 2022, all of this would prove to be Democrat Party engineered bullshit.  We also believe that the Chi-Coms and the flipping Canucks had a hand in this scam, and we hope one day, they pay a tremendous price for their perfidy.  We would love to see the Chi-Coms nuked off the face of the planet. [vi]
  55. 2018 Saturday: The government of Nicaragua reluctantly reports that more than 300 people have been killed by Sandinista forces, people protesting against the communist thug government of dictator Daniel Noriega, someone Democrats in the United States praise.  That’s commies for you.
  56. 2019 Sunday: Famed American boxer Pernell Whitaker dies at age 55 after being hit by a speeding automobile.   A four-division champion, he won Olympic gold in 1984.  Over the course of his professional career, he compiled a record of 46 fights, 40 wins (17 KOs), 4 losses, 1 draw, and 1 no contest.
  57. 2020 Tuesday: Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg finds herself in John Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland, tonight.  She is undergoing antibiotic treatment for an unknown condition.  We wish her well.   Meanwhile, in the Alabama GOP runoff for the right to face Democrat Doug Jones in November, Tommy Tuberville, supported by President Donald J. Trump, pounds the final nail into the coffin of former U.S. senator and former U.S. Attorney-General Jeff Sessions by beating him.  We always liked Senator sessions but when the jig’s up, the jig is up.

[viii]

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 305,441 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 98,637 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xiv]        
  66. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.313 per gallon, $3.001 in Florida, $4.059 in Hawaii, and $3.838 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- Guam: $4.379.  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- Malawi: $4.242 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,521,987,904,317 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 which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Cayman Island, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Taiwan with $235 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  67. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 113 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the southern border and her 19th day since her one and only visit to the southern border.  In between slandering rural American voters out of her ignorance, the ‘Border Czar’ now is standing with the fugitive Texas Democrats by comparing them to Frederick Douglass and the Suffragettes.  What a moron.  Anyhow, here are the stats for the illegal alien invasion as compiled by One America News: (1) Cost this Day of caring for the illegal aliens in the country: $529,756,608.  Next, (2) Cost this Year of caring for the millions of vermin in the country: $213,132,541,952.  Next, (3) here is the number for illegals estimated to have crossed the southern border this year: 2,184,438.  Finally, (4) conservative estimated number for illegals suspected to be roaming the byways of the country: 36,184,436.  Note- since the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day first began writing back in 2009, we said back then that there were between 35-50 million human flotsam and jetsam clogging up the country whereas now, we believe there is between 75-100 million illegal aliens.
  68. 2021 Wednesday G: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– Tucker Carlson reports on his news program on Fox News this evening that whistleblowers have handed over information that shows Lt. Colonel Matthew J. Burrows of the USAF has given his subordinates information regarding the U.S. military’s transport of hundreds of thousands of illegals across the nation.  They are not to take photos; they are not to talk of the seeding operations of illegal aliens across the country nor should they share any information on social media.  Anyone caught doing so will face repercussions.   U.S. Air Force aircraft and U.S. Air Force bases are being used as staging grounds and transportation hubs so the Bidenistas can remake the country they seemingly loathe and seek to overthrow from within.  This is not good, and it must stop NOW. [xviii]   Stephen Miller, former White House senior adviser says this is a RESETTLEMENT PROGRAM and that it goes on 24/7/365 since Joe Biden entered the White House.
  69. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– The Taliban sets off a bomb in Kabul, Afghanistan, which claimed the lives of at least four people and wounded at least 11 more.   Reports coming out of the crap country say that the Taliban is carrying out mass executions of Afghan government troops.  Kabul is appealing for help from the Iranians, the Chi-Coms, and the Russians.  Elsewhere, as violence continues to increase in South Africa over the arrest of former President Jacob “The Spear” Zuma, the specter of food and fuel shortages is on the rise.  Meanwhile, French healthcare workers are pushing back against President Emanuel Macron’s orders that ALL healthcare workers in that country MUST get vaccinated for the Bat Pox or surrender their jobs.  This demand by the government has led to mass protests in the streets across France requiring French law enforcement to let loose with tear gas, water cannons, rubber bullets, and nightsticks.
  70. 2021 Wednesday I: Foreign News / Overseas News II– The Chi-Coms, the Russians, and the Iranians are threatening the Biden regime that it had better NOT interfere on behalf of the Cuban people which sadly, we know they won’t.  They are saying ‘hands off Cuba’ which is wrong which is why it is imperative to get President Donald J. Trump back into the White House.  The Chi-Coms are also threatening the Biden regime NOT to interfere in Hong Kong or in Taiwan.  We say, “F**k them.”   Meanwhile, while inflation in the United States hovers around 5.4-percent, Great Britain reports they have hit 2.5-percent inflation, their highest rate in 3 years.
  71. 2021 Wednesday J: Health and Medical Alerts– California’s Department of Health is requiring ALL students and teachers to wear masks indoors to fight off the Chi-Vi.  Stupid.  Elsewhere, a children’s advocacy group is suing Washington, D.C., school district over allowing children to be vaccinated with the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine without notifying the parents.  In other Chi-Vi-related news, unvaccinated Purdue students will have to “make arrangements” for their schoolwork meaning they cannot sit in classroom with their fellow students.
  72. 2021 Wednesday K: Joe Biden News I– Fake News Media hacks continue celebrating Joe Biden’s big speech yesterday in the Keystone State because he did not fall down, did not start slobbering, did not go blank.  Somehow, the old coot made it through the speech.  However, they did not show the ‘raucous crowd’ hooting and cheering, clapping, and shouting, nor did they show the empty streets traveled by the ‘presidential motorcade’ on the way to the event.  Only Newsmax and One America News showed the vacant streets.
  73. 2021 Wednesday L: Political News I– First, in Arizona, Blake Masters has launched a U.S. Senate run for 2022.  Business owners in Texas say that Joe Biden’s economic policies are worse than the Xi Jinping Bat Flu lockdowns of 2020.  Amen.  In other fascinating news, it appears that the Democratic-Socialists of America are backing Cuba’s government over the long-suffering Cuban people.  Wow.  Add to that the fact that U.S. Department of Homeland Security Director Alejandro Mayorkas said today that ‘Cuban and Haitian refugees should NOT come to the United States via the sea.’  Wow.  Apparently, Cuban refugees are pro-democracy and despise communism thus they would find NO home here in the United States as long as the Bidenistas and their allies control power.    Speaking of the illustrious DHS secretary, Rep. Nicole Malliotakis, R-NY 11th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden should apply Secretary Mayorkas’ rules for Cubans to illegal aliens on the southern border.’  Amen.
  74. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News II– Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer and his fellow Senate Democrats are set to unveil their plan with which to decriminalize marijuana at the federal level.  Wow.  Good for the country.  Elsewhere, as “Kooky Kamala” Harris continues taking heat from one gaffe after another, many Americans now believe that the ‘vice president’ is seriously out of touch with reality.  We concur.  Next, former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley says the request by U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken for ‘racism experts’ from the UN to help the United States combat racism ‘is insane.’  Finally, the House Select Committee on the False Flag Operation of January 06, 2021, has scheduled its first hearing.  Boy, oh, boy, what fun.
  75. 2021 Wednesday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell says that inflation is likely to remain elevating until eventually moderating.  Uh, okay.  Meanwhile, the Federal Bureau of Investigation finally does something right and that is, it thwarts a kidnap plot hatched in Tehran and put into action here in the United States by four Iranian covert ops agents.  The four scumbags sought to kidnap Iranian author and freedom fighter Masih Alinejad from her Brooklyn home, get her to the coast, transport her to the S—hole nation of Venezuela where the Maduro regime would then hand her over to Iranian thugs for transport back to their country.  (Note- we hope the Biden regime will execute the potential kidnappers if it gets their hands on them).
  76. 2021 Wednesday O: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3577 with a $8 million jackpot on the line: 08, 15, 28, 38, 39, and Mega 18.  Out of 83,823 winning tickets, the highest winners were 14 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $1,050 apiece.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #863 with a $150 million jackpot on the line: 33, 46, 52, 59, 62, and Powerball 10.  Out of 65,247 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $34,831.
  77. 2021 Wednesday P: Sports News– In the 2021 NBA Finals, the Milwaukee Bucks evened the series up by beating the Phoenix Suns by a final score of 109-103.  The next game is Saturday, July 17.
  78. 2022 Thursday:  What stupid things will spill out of feeble Joe’s mouth today?  White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, aka “Medusa,” or any of the other mopes in the ‘administration?’  Stick around and find out along with us…

[i] We hope to present the music of the J. Geil’s Band at some point within the next five years.  One of the great American bands, they most certainly deserve to be heard and celebrated by the readership of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day.

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

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

[iv] We hope to celebrate the music of the Everly Brothers one day. 

[v] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.  Sadly, we were shortsighted at the time that we did not present the various members’ solo projects but one day, we hope to rectify that error.

[vi] Personal sentiments of Chef Cheryl La Tigre who since having moved with her family to Florida is now in the Republican camp.  Nothing like a crash course in red state politics from Ron DeSantis!

[vii] 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] This can only be occurring if General Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, is permitting it to occur.  Mr. Carlson is correct when he says that this goes against the oath to the Constitution every service member from the lowest specialist to General Milley swears to.  What’s more, IF the current regime labels it a conspiracy theory to believe in the Replacement Theory, the federal government sure the hell is doing nothing to dispel that notion.  We are on the cusp of dictatorship.  Plain and fucking simple.

151. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, MAY 31, 2022

2016 Tuesday: While the United States is always beating itself up over the fact that it had slaves, Reuters reports on this day the results of a report by the Global Slavery Index: the report estimates that people born into slavery NOW, sold into sex, debt, or labor bondage around the world are 45.8 million with India having the most slaves- 18.4 million and North Korea, the highest percentage of its population at 4.4-percent. Hell, everyone in North Korea is a slave.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Following “Sunflower,” the next Beach Boys album is “Surf’s Up,” an album that came out on August 30, 1971.  This is a phenomenal record, one that features every band member contributing lead vocals with the exception of Dennis.  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), and Bruce Johnston (vocals and bass).  The album is excellent all the way through with the exception of one peculiar track which we will get to.  The album opens with “Don’t Go Near the Water” sung by Mike, Al, and Brian followed by one of Carl Wilson’s all-time greatest, “Long Promised Road,” followed by “Take a Load off Your Feet” sung by Brian and Al followed by one of Bruce Johnston’s best, “Disney Girls 1957.”  Closing side one out is a remake of an old Lieber and Stoller song, “Riot in Cell Block Number 9” only done as “Student Demonstration Time” sung by Mike Love.  Side two opens with another Carl Wilson classic, “Feel Flows” followed by “Lookin’ at Tomorrow (A Welfare Song)” sung by Al followed by the extremely strange “A Day in the Life of a Tree” sung by two of Brian’s lyricists and Al.  Take this one for what you will.  The final two songs, “Til’ I Die” sung by Carl, Brian, and Mike is absolutely stunning followed by the final cut, one from Brian’s ‘Smile’ project, “Surf’s Up,” sung by Carl, Brian, and Al.  Absolutely amazing from start almost to the finish which is why we hope everyone will seek it out, give it a good listen, and to make it a part of your daily listening rotation.   You will be glad you did.

  68. 2020 Saturday: More information continues coming to light about how the communist Chinese have been working on bat viruses for the past 15-20 years.  The question is WHY?  Some say it’s because of SARS which caused numerous deaths when it broke out a decade or so ago while others believe- us, too- that it is for biowarfare research.  Well, it appears that COVID-19 did manage to jailbreak the Wuhan Institute of Virology and away we go.  Now dictator for life Xi Jinping says he welcomes a W.H.O.-led investigation into the origin of the Wuhan Virus when it ends.  When it ends?  And the W.H.O.?  The World Health Organization does the bidding of Xi Jinping so why would anyone believe anything it or the communists in Beijing say?  Here are today’s stats, first for the globe: 5,288,392 confirmed cases, 340,875 confirmed deaths, and 2,102,557 confirmed recoveries the last of which gives us hope as the number of recoveries far outweighs deaths.

Gavin Newsom continues playing politics.  He and his regime believe that IF they continue NOT publishing the number of recoveries, Californians will be afraid but next week when we begin seeing temperatures soar to over 100 degrees, people are going to disobey all governmental orders and edicts.  We won’t forget WHO is destroying the economy and It’s NOT President Donald J. Trump.  No, it’s Democrat governors.  Here are the stats for Hawaii: 647 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 579 confirmed recoveries.  Here at the statistics for Washington state: 19,265 confirmed cases, 1,050 confirmed deaths, and ZERO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Come on, Gov.

Security Council as it was before the communist takeover.

  78. 2021 Sunday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– Outrage is growing over Belarus forcing down Ryanair Flight 4978 over its territory to seize a critic of thug ruler Alexander Lukashenko, journalist Raman Pratasevich.  The flight was coming from Athens, Greece, on the way to Vilnius, Lithuania, and as it traversed Belarusian airspace, fighter jets came alongside the aircraft while ground control warned the pilots of a bomb aboard the craft.  The flight then was directed to land at Minsk where the authorities went aboard and arrested Mr. Pratasevich.  Of course, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and other world leaders- including NATO!- condemned the Lukashenko government for this criminal act.  Question- who will do anything about it?  (Note- any members of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day will be careful as to where we fly so as to avoid any kind of illegal rendition threats).
  79. 2021 Sunday H: Fourth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award Updates– The “Amazing” Dr. Tony Fauci has made it into the running for the 2021 Award that will be awarded in January 2022.  Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci is on the list because he is little more than a hired gun political hack who will babble whatever those funding his lunacy tell him to say.  Who can remember ‘masks were not necessary,’ then ‘masks were,’ then ‘maybe googles, too,’ then ‘maybe no goggles,’ then ‘perhaps two masks,’ then ‘perhaps three masks,’ as well as ‘schools should reopen’ and yet they are not open?  Yup.  He has earned his place in the running this year- Chef Pedro.
  80. 2021 Sunday I: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– Oh, the gift that continues giving- thank you, communist China, thank you.  According to reports, India which is suffering some massive numbers of the Wuhan Flu also is seeing a dreadful additional effect, the so-called ‘black fungus,’ which in medical parlance is mucormycosis that centers around the eyes, nose, and mouth and can cause death in about half the cases reporting it.  According to the Indian government, they have close to 9,000 cases of this diabolical accompaniment of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  And you question as to whether this evil disease was created in a Chi-Com lab funded by the devious Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci.
  81. 2022 Monday: As you know, we await the news of the day…stick around and discover the truth…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys were at a crossroads as far as which direction to go.  Fun at the beach was being replaced with mind trips via smoking the ganja and dropping the big LSD.  Like everyone else, the Beach Boys were expanding their consciousness via the weed and psychedelics and the album composer Brian Wilson was working on- “Smile”- was too far out for the rest of the group and so they released a subpar one entitled, “Smiley Smile” on September 16, 1967.  Although the album was no “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” (Beatles), “Their Satanic Majesties’ Request” (Rolling Stones), “Face to Face” by the Kinks, or “Ogden’s Nut-Gone Flake” (Small Faces), it produced one of the all-time greatest hits of the era: “Good Vibrations” and a lesser one, albeit a live staple, “Heroes and Villains.”  The lineup features Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals and percussion), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), and Bruce Johnston (vocals and bass).  We love this album and understand that 55 years on, it’s still a glorious album to be sure.  We hope everyone will seek this one out, give it a good listen, and then make it a part of your daily listening pleasure- we believe you will be joyous that you did.

Gavin Newsom won’t share them.  Next, Hawaii has 638 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 563 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, Washington state has 17,512 confirmed cases, 975 confirmed deaths, and 0 number of confirmed recoveries because it’s all POLITICAL.  Thank you, communist China, thank you, Democratic Party, beware of communist China-Democratic Party collusion.  Meanwhile, the judge in the Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn case- Judge Emmet Sullivan- refuses to let the case go even after the U.S. Department of Justice said it’s not going to prosecute this case.  This is what is wrong in the United States, we have dictatorial judges who need to be impeached and removed from office.  Perhaps when the GOP controls both houses of Congress in January 2021?

  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…

The next album by the Beach Boys- “Shut Down Volume 2” was the biggest to date as it contained so many wonderful tunes.  The lineup featured Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals and saxophones), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), and Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals).  The tunes on this album are some of the band’s fan favorites to this date- “Fun, Fun, Fun,” “Don’t Worry Baby” (a tune Who drummer Keith Moon would cover on his sole solo album), “The Warmth of the Sun,” “This Car of Mine,” “Why Do Fools Fall in Love,” “Shut Down Part II,” and a cover of “Louie, Louie.”  We hope you will investigate this album to your ears’ content as it is one every fan of the times and of the band should own.  You will be so glad you did.

101. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, APRIL 11, 2022

: Friends, we understand that the left can say whatever they want about whomever they want. However, they persecute us for making light of all manner of things, lampooning bigwig politicians, or criticizing drastic social changes. Well, we will do our best to clean things up and put our critics at ease. What the hell.

  67. 2015 Saturday: According to Brainy History, U.S. President Barack Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro meet at the Summit of the Americas in Panama for talks aimed at thawing relations; the historic meeting marks the first interaction in decades between top leaders of the two nations.  President Obama loves communists, and he loves jihadists, especially Shiite ones.
  68. 2016 Monday: In war-torn Yemen, a U.N.-backed ceasefire goes into effect between Saudi Arabia and Iranian-backed Houthi rebels.  Elsewhere, Goldman Sachs, seen as one of the big causes of the 2008 fiscal crisis that conveniently helped Barack Hussein Obama win the White House reached a settlement with the federal government for having sold ‘derivatives,’ packages of mortgages that contained numerous dogs which when everything went to hell took the entire economy down with it.  Anyhow, Goldman Sachs agreed to pay $5.06 billion to settle all claims.

Geils, died from natural causes on this date in Groton, Massachusetts, at age 71.  Elsewhere, as U.S. Navy assets approach the two Koreas, Kim Jong Un goes to the microphone banks to address his people (as well as the world) and threatens WAR with the United States if they don’t pull their forces back.  Elsewhere, a U.S. airstrike goes awry in Syria as American jets seeking to light up a bunch of ISIS scumbags instead kills 18 allied Syrian Democratic Forces troops.
  70. 2018 Wednesday: The Palestinians are upset that Israeli troops and a sniper who took out a Hamas thug got off without being in trouble.  Thus, they set off a bomb near some Israeli construction equipment which then leads the Israeli Defense Forces to light up some Hamas positions in the Gaza Strip.  What the hell is wrong with these people?   Meanwhile, other trouble-makers in the region- the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels- launch some rockets into Saudi Arabia one of which shows up in the skies over Riyadh but is taken down by Saudi air force jets.
  71. 2019 Thursday: Today, things ended for Julian Assange as British police forcibly removed him from the Ecuadoran embassy in London.   The United States wants him extradited so he can stand charges for his role in Wikileaks releasing loads of secret Iraq war documents.  Elsewhere, the son of a local sheriff in the great state of Louisiana undergoes arrest for having committed several acts of arson against historically black churches in the state.  Holden Matthews would eventually receive a sentence of 25 years in a federal prison with hate crimes attached.  POS.

  76. 2021 Sunday B: COVID-19 STATISTICS in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,696,791 confirmed cases, 60,334 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,124,233 confirmed cases, 34,021 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 30,956 confirmed cases, 471 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 377,979 confirmed cases, 5,373 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Oklahoma, home of the late great Bass Reeves, the true Lone Ranger: they have 442,805 confirmed cases, 6,691 confirmed deaths, but sadly, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.[xi] 
  77. 2021 Sunday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 835,933 confirmed cases, 6,296 confirmed deaths, and 825,579 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Kazakhstan, yet another loyal client state of Russia: 320,881 cases of the virus, 3,267 confirmed deaths and 284,034 confirmed recoveries.[xii]
  78. 2021 Sunday D: U.S. CURRENCY COMPARED TO FOREIGN: Today, Bitcoin to one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.56 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.19.     In Ecuadorian Sucre, one greenback equals 25,000.00 and in French Pacific Franc, a buck equals 100.24.[xiii]
  79. 2021 Sunday E: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE THREE STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.932 per gallon, $2.839 in Florida, $3.725 in Hawaii, and $3.336 in Washington state.[xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- Georgia: $2.708.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,160,214,670,182 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven running amok.
  80. 2022 Monday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole– 499,644,267 confirmed cases, +458,572, 6,205,518 confirmed deaths, +2,146 and 449,418,898 confirmed recoveries, +703,516. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 82,101,946 confirmed cases, UP 38,957 from yesterday’s reporting, 1,012,427 confirmed deaths, UP 276,[xvi] and 79,952,429 confirmed recoveries, UP to 43,909.    We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[xvii]
  81. 2022 Monday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 563,134 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 198,469 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 446 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.              
  82. 2022 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: 9,133,348 confirmed cases, 89,498 confirmed deaths, and 8,881,898 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,911,882 confirmed cases, 73,583 confirmed deaths, and 5,796,163 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 241,972 confirmed cases, 1,382 confirmed deaths, and 236,602 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,467,059 confirmed cases, 12,566 confirmed deaths, and 1,429,877 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Montana: they have 272,919 confirmed cases, 3,255 confirmed deaths, and 269,320 confirmed recoveries.[xviii]   
  83. 2022 Monday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 4,006,177 confirmed cases, 10,591 confirmed deaths, and 3,941,841 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- St. Barth, 209th place on the list: 4,313 cases of the virus, 6 confirmed death and 4,307 confirmed recoveries.[xix]                         
  84. 2022 Monday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,308.08, DOWN 413.04 points (-1.19%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,411.96 DOWN 299.04 points (-2.18%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,412.53, DOWN 75.75 points (-1.69%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $95.10 per barrel, +0.81 (+0.86%).  The price of GOLD is $1,956.10 per troy oz., +7.90 (+0.41%) while the price of SILVER is $25.23 per troy ounce, +0.24 (+0.97%).  The price of PLATINUM is $981.20 per troy oz, +3.40 (+0.35%) while the price of COPPER is $4.63 per pound, 0.00 (-0.04%).[xx]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,448.73 per troy oz., +16.56 (+0.68%). The price of RHODIUM is $18,900.00 per troy oz., -100.00 (-0.53%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,180,000.00 per CNY/T, -30,000.00 (-2.48%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,229.00 per USD/T, -145.50 (-4.31%). The price of ZINC is $4,320.00 per USD/T., +65.50 (+1.54%).   The price of COCOA is $2,616.00 per USD/T, -4.00 (-0.15%).  The price of COFFEE is $236.60 per USD/T, +4.95 (+2.14%).  The price of LUMBER is $886.30 USD 1,000 board feet -63.60 (-6.70%).[xxi]   Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000025.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.37 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.92 euros, in Mexican pesos equals 19.92, and in Russian rubles, one dollar equals 81.00 of theirs.    In Iraqi Dinar, one greenback equals 1,458.50 and in Jamaican Dollar, a buck equals 153.87 and in Japanese Yen, one dollar equals 125.42 of theirs.[xxii]       
  85. 2022 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 and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.763 per gallon, $4.072 in Florida, $5.228 in Hawaii, and $4.680 in Washington state.[xxiii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: District of Columbia- $4.237.  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 13th LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Egypt: $1.971 per U.S. Gallon.[xxiv] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,378,296,809,101 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Thailand the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Germany.  This nation holds $75,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  86. 2022 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– Russian troops operating in Ukraine have been nominated for ‘Darwin Awards’ over the idiots removing ‘radioactive souvenirs’ from the Chernobyl power plant in Ukraine.   Meanwhile, Ukrainian military authorities are alleging the Russians have used drones with which to disperse chemical weapons in the beleaguered port city of Mariupol.  Civilian and military authorities are awaiting independent confirmation that the Russians did indeed use chemical weapons.  Speaking of such barbarism, a Chechen leader says that Russian President Vladimir Putin should indeed use tactical nuclear weapons to subdue the Ukrainians.  Still, Moscow claims they have eradicated all of Ukraine’s S-300 missile systems.
  87. 2022 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II– Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says ‘Russia will not suspend its military operations in Ukraine even as ‘peace talks’ between the two countries are underway.   Meanwhile, although the Russians claim otherwise, the mayor of Mariupol says that at least 10,000 civilians have died during the siege and that when the siege is lifted, the true numbers of dead civilians could double that.  How is it the United Nations is not raising troops from member countries and forcing Russia to stop its malevolent actions in a peaceful country?
  88. 2022 Monday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Vice President Kamala Harris- California’s shame- has been in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border disaster for the past 374 days and worse, she has not shown up to do more than a couple hours’ worth of work in 288 days.  What has the country done to deserve a vice president such as her?  Okay, we do our best to continue computing the true costs of illegal immigration on America, the same way that One America News did prior to Direct TV removing them from their list of channels.  Perhaps because we continue promoting the honest-to-God numbers to the best of our abilities, perhaps this is why we find ourselves under assault from some of the biggest search engines.  It is what it is.  The cost of caring for the illegal alien invaders since January 01, 2022, is $642,844,149.  The cost of caring for the Biden-Harris illegals since the undynamic duo took their oaths with which they swore to uphold the U.S. Constitution is $42,388,919,892.  The number of illegals we estimate to have crossed the border since January 20, 2021, is 1,026,488.  Fourth and final, the conservative low estimate of illegal aliens in the country is 45,401,750.  We believe the numbers to be closer to 85-to-125 million illegal aliens which is the prime reason our country is in a state of economic malaise (not to mention liberal policies).[xxvi] (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).
  89. 2022 Monday I: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer: $53.97 (2) AstraZeneca: $70.63 (3) Novavax: $57.54 (4) Merck & Company: $86.63 (5) Johnson & Johnson: $179.88  (6) BioNTech: $170.55 (7) Moderna: $160.00.
  90. 2022 Monday J: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $102.12 (2) Boeing: $175.04 (3) General Dynamics: $243.55 (4) Lockheed Martin: $464.30 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $462.14.
  91. 2022 Monday K: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Ansell Ltd.: $25.53 (2) DuPont: $68.48 (3) 3M: $150.12 (4) Honeywell: $189.27  (5) Teijen: $1,312.00.
  92. 2022 Monday L: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News– (1) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $23.55 (2) Beyond Meat: $43.96  (3) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $67.86.
  93. 2022 Monday M: Big Box Store Stock Prices (Follow the Money 5) News– (1) Wal-Mart: $154.33 (2) Lowe’s: $204.75 (3) Home Depot: $306.89 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $584.67 (5) Amazon: $3,022.44.
  94. 2022 Monday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– The White House is preparing for ‘extraordinarily-elevated CPI numbers,’ numbers that are sure to lead massive losses in House and Senate seats in November.  Next, the administration nominates a new commander to lead NATO forward.  Meanwhile, even as COVID-19 numbers continue tanking, the Biden administration is seeking a resumption of forcing EVERY federal worker or contractor to undergo forced vaccination with one of the COVID-19 vaccines.
  95. 2022 Monday O: Joe Biden Regime News II– Although President Joe Biden is going to continue forcing all federal workers to undergo vaccination with the COVID-19 vaccines- and although Dr. Anthony Fauci continues saying the American people are going to have to learn to live with this foul disease, the Pentagon is moving onto the next pandemic, whatever it might be.
  96. 2022 Monday P: Political News I– Law enforcement officers in Pennsylvania arrested an elderly man who was sticking “I DID THAT” stickers onto gasoline pumps.  The stickers featured President Joseph R. Biden pointing to the exorbitant cost of the gas pumped.  Other hilarious stickers featured the nation’s vice president, quoted as saying, “I HELPED.”  While we recognize gas station owners must peel the stickers off- sometimes with difficulty- one cannot sidestep the fact that energy costs are sky high, and that the Biden-Harris administration bears COMPLETE responsibility and not Vladimir Putin’s war in Ukraine.
  97. 2022 Monday Q: Political News II– Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson blasted the White House and its stance on gender affirming/gender reassignment surgeries.  Of course, the White House is a big proponent of life-altering gender surgeries which seems rather devilish to many.  Next, famed economist Peter Navarro says that a ‘perfect storm’ of stagflation is heading our way.   In other news, Texas General Land Office Commissioner George P. Bush says, ‘it’s right for Governor Greg Abbott to send illegal aliens- what the left euphemistically labels as ‘undocumented migrants- to Washington, D.C., and to other ‘sanctuary locales.’  Finally, in other news Democrat locales would be wise to emulate, Governor Ron DeSantis signed a bill this morning with which to bolster fatherhood programs across the Sunshine State.
  98. 2022 Monday R: Political News III– Stacey Abrams-backed election law in the Peach State is going to trial.   Meanwhile, in Iowa, a hubbub continues following last night’s ruling by a judge in the state that won’t permit Senator Chuck Grassley’s struggling Democratic challenger- Abby Finkenauer to appear on the state’s Democratic Party primary ballot.  To qualify for the primary ballot, a candidate must have 100 signatures- or more- each from 19 counties to make the grade.  Although the Finkenauer campaign submitted more than 3,500 signatures, she did not get the necessary number to face off against Senator Grassley.  C’ est la vie.  Of the signatures, questions swirled around three of them from two counties.  Go figure.  Stop registering illegal aliens.
  99. 2022 Monday S: Political News IV– Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, says the White House is being mum on its plans with which to shove portions of the Build Back Better plan through to fruition.  We can only speculate what other evil crap the administration is attempting to insert into this doomed-to-fail bill.  Election Day is fast approaching and contrary to what many progressives are trumpeting, not every Democrat wants to lose his or her seat supporting this crumbling ‘signature package.’
  100. 2022 Monday T: Second Amendment News– The National Rifle Association has slammed President Joseph R. Biden’s new executive orders on the evil ‘ghost guns.’  Since before the founding of the country, Americans have made their own firearms and ammunition and even though President Biden believes he has a winner with this issue, Americans will continue making their own guns and crafting their own ammunition.  It is what free people in a free country do.  We are not communist China yet nor if older Americans continue defending freedom from the new generation of indoctrinated losers, we will continue doing this until the day we die.
  101. 2022 Monday U: California Lottery Results-Powerball Monday Night Draw- here are the results for the Powerball Draw #974 with a jackpot of $85 million up for grabs: 05, 07, 24, 31, 34, and Power 04.  Out of 62,911 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $33,732.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Every artist releases a ‘20th Century Masters,’ i.e., best of compilation, and Robbie Robertson is no different.  We have a collection of the guitarist’s most beloved tunes all in one place so what do you have to lose?  We mourn the loss of the Band just as we celebrated the others regrouping and trying to regain some steam.  We also love Robbie Robertson’s unique songwriting abilities, talent that gave us songs that 50 years later are as powerful and as poignant as they are today, especially when put up against crap from Maroon Five, Coldplay, and other Bozo bands that dupe younger fans into believing they are something of value.  Please, seek this album out, give it a good listen, and consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure- you will be glad you did.

[vi] Hall & Oates?  We have no clue.  Stay tuned.

[vii] Linda Ronstadt?  No clue as to when we will promote the music of this legendary vocalist either.

[viii] We promoted the music of Genesis and its members beginning on Tuesday, 02-April-2019 through Sunday, 15-September-2019.  This included not only the parent group but also Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett, Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford, Mike + the Mechanics, and Phil Collins.  Please, look for them.

[ix] We hope to present the music of the J. Geil’s Band at some point within the next five years.  One of the great American bands, they most certainly deserve to be heard and celebrated by the readership of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day.

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

  76. 2021 Sunday A: As the ‘Biden administration’ continues bringing the U.S. into a Middle Eastern war, B-52s are flying across the Persian Gulf to strike fear into the hearts of Iranians.  Why we are flying B-52s is beyond us as far too many were shot down in the Vietnam War.  Here we are a half-century later flying the same aircraft, designed in the 1950s, while air defenses of all weaponry have become ‘smart.’  If the B-52s were to go into action over Iran, they would be easy pickings.   Joe- don’t get the U.S. into a war to defend gay rights and women’s rights in nations that will never respect them.   Speaking of the military, the Pentagon is reviewing a request to keep National Guard troops in Washington, D.C., for another TWO months.
  77. 2021 Sunday B: President Donald J. Trump announces he is going to go to Alaska so he can campaign against RINO Senator Lisa Murkowski.  We would love to see former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin primary Senator Murkowski.[x]   Speaking of President Trump, he lambastes various RINO Republican entities for misusing his brand in fund-raising efforts, especially when they continue supporting RINOs who voted for his impeachment.  He demands they cease and desist.  That means the Republican House and Senate Committees and we believe the Republican National Committee, too.  Until the GOP comes to grips with its RINO problems, no one is going to send another dime to any GOP PAC or Super Pac.  F**k them.
  78. 2021 Sunday C: In the U.S. Senate, the Republicans tried to block COVID-19 relief checks going to illegal aliens and other foreign citizens- as well as to people doing time in the hoosegow- but the Democrats blocked the GOP.   With the absence of Alaska Senator Dan Sullivan, Republican, away on family business, the Dems passed the COVID-19 ‘Relief Bill’ by a vote of 50-49.  We learn that at least 17 million Americans are ineligible to receive benefits while river-swimming illegals and the incarcerated will receive checks.  F**k them.   RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel says Joe Biden should concentrate on reopening schools rather than sending checks to people who don’t deserve them.
  79. 2021 Sunday D: In New York, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo’s woes continue to worsen what with two more women coming out and pointing the fingers of doom at this POS who thinks his fecal matter doesn’t stink.  The Albany Times says NOT only should “Killer Cuomo” go but the enablers who helped him get away with incalculable #MeToo crimes.[xi]   Speaking of Cuomo, the New York legislature has stripped the bum of his emergency rights.  NO more acting like a dictator.  We hope to see his brother, Chris the Pris, face his own #MeToo troubles what with his exceptionally close relationship with fellow CNN anchor Don Lemon, both of whom are reputed gropers.   Speaking of the Empire State, Donald Trump is planning his first visit to the Big Apple since leaving office.
  80. 2021 Sunday E:  Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, says the ‘Democratic agenda is the reshaping of America.’  Amen.  Meanwhile, a massive global hack breaches Microsoft business accounts.   Speaking of hacks, pressure applied by President Donald J.

  81. 2021 Sunday F: Governor Greg Abbot and the state of Texas is launching Operation Lone Star with which to fund, employ National Guard troops, and law enforcement officers in land, sea, and air operations to halt the tidal wave of illegal aliens trying to force their way into the country.  All power to Texas!  Let’s revive Operation Wetback and begin rounding up and removing illegal aliens everywhere we find them.  Meanwhile, Florida GOP Congressman Matt Gaetz blasts the Biden administration for holding NO press conferences and notes that it appears as though we are moving towards a “Harris administration.”  Amen.  Speaking of the Republican Party, it’s speaking out against the cancelation of news media outlets on the right by the left and Cancel Culture.
  82. 2021 Sunday G: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 116,600,908 confirmed cases, +431,789, 2,589,638, confirmed deaths, +7,563, and 65,920,692 confirmed recoveries, +225,672.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,258,941 confirmed cases, up 65,668 from yesterday’s reporting, 529,527 confirmed deaths, UP 1,610, and 112,291,045 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile drooling POS.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 201,050 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.   Note- that stupid bi**h Jen “Circle Back” Psaki won’t credit President Trump’s Operation Warp Speed.
  83. 2021 Sunday H: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,596,488 confirmed cases, 54,124 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,646 confirmed cases, 444 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 347,301 confirmed cases, 5,107 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Idaho: currently, they have 173,011 confirmed cases, 1,882 confirmed deaths, and 96,017 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 799,727 confirmed cases, 5,856 confirmed deaths, and 753,081 confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of the Chi-Com lab-engineered biowarfare, anti-Trump Xi Jinping Bat Virus, AstraZeneca says that it’s planning to deliver roughly 50 million doses of the Chi-Vi Vax to Americans within the next two months.
  84. 2021 Sunday I: Switzerland votes to ban face coverings in public.  Meanwhile, authorities report that the Russians have launched a disinformation campaign on the efficacy and safety of U.S. Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines.  F**k the Russians.  Elsewhere, a Uighur Muslim human rights group demands the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics be stripped from the Chi-Com regional power over their persecution of Uighurs and other minorities in the western portion of that backward country.  Finally, the U.S. and South Korea are preparing to hold limited military exercises beginning tomorrow and which will run for nine days.  North Korea promises to closely monitor them.  How about we END the Korean War?  What a novel idea!
  85. 2021 Sunday J: Senator John Barrasso, R-WY, blasts the Biden PORKULUS Relief Bill as nothing more than a ‘liberal wish list.’  Meanwhile, Representative Mike Gallagher, R-WI, is demanding that Joe Biden reconsider shutting down the Keystone XL Pipeline.  It’s time to open that sucker back up so Americans can enjoy cheap energy prices.  In other news, economist Stephen Moore says a good jobs report can get the U.S. economy going up like a rocket ship.  Next, Trump era student loan debt czar Mark A. Brown hands his resignation letter over to the Biden administration.    Finally, Newsmax asks an important question: is “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell planning to exit the world’s greatest deliberative body?  Probably going to relocate to the PRC so he can help his father-in-law run his shipping company.
  86. 2022 Monday:  Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Band released its first ‘best of’ compilation, “The Best of the Band,” on July 15, 1976.  The group was having inner turmoil related to being together for far too long, having massive success and then a decline all within the span of about five years.  Thus, the record company said ‘it’s time to release a compilation’ so we can bring in some additional revenue so here we are.  Still, you have a glorious introduction to one of the most prolific groups of all time- yes, we said it, because the music and the attitude of this band influenced everyone from Eric Clapton to Dave Mason to loads of other similar-sounding groups- which is why if you have yet to get in on the ground floor, well, this is the perfect way in which you can do it.  Seek it out wherever you shop for the absolute best in rock music and add it to your growing collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-recommended albums.  You can thank us later.

Sunday, March 07, 2021, Today in History Blog Post:

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

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


Monday, March 07, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We promoted the music of the Zombies, Argent, Rod Argent, and Colin Blunstone beginning on Monday, 28-October-2019 through Sunday, 05-January-2020.  Please, check them out.

[ii] We shared the music of the famed Los Angeles, California, psychedelic rock band, Love, beginning on Wednesday, 24-October-2012 through Friday, 16-November-2012.  We hope you will check them out as they deserve to be heard.

[iii] We are unclear as to when we will begin promoting the music of the J. Geils’ Band but when we do, you will be the first to know.  We hope you remain attentive for the day when we do because they are one of the all-time great American rock bands.

[iv] We began promoting the music of both Procol Harum and Robin Trower along with Gary Brooker beginning on Monday, 16-March-2015 through Sunday, 31-May-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your growing music collection.

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

[vi] Not sure when we present this Canadian rock band, Loverboy, but we sure as heck hope we do sometime within the next decade because- say what you will about them- they are as exciting today as they were back in the 1980s.  Please remain vigilant for the day that we do.

[vii] We shared the music of Deep Purple, Ian Gillan, Captain Beyond, Elf, and Rainbow beginning on Tuesday, 20-March-2018 and concluded this massive offering on Sunday, 14-October-2018.  Please seek out the music by all of these phenomenal bands.  All are fabulous.

[viii] We began promoting the music of the Beatles and the band’s original members, beginning on Friday, 04-November-2016 which ran through Sunday, 11-June-2017. You definitely need to check out the music of the Beatles, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr- you will be glad you did.

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

[x] One of the reasons (among many) President Trump wants to end the service of Senator Murkowski is her support for Debra Haaland to become the next secretary of the Department of the Interior, a person who will cripple the 49th state’s energy and mineral production.  It’s time for Murkowski to go.

[xi] The amazing thing is NYC Mayor Bill Di Blasio smells chum in the water and is planning on launching a primary campaign to strip “Killer Cuomo” of the governorship and winning it for himself.  That is pretty bad when a loser like Di Blasio is in better shape than a boner like Cuomo.  Going to be fun to watch.

51. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 2022

2021 Saturday D: Note- Chef Bea O’Malley- lifelong member of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day- says “IF Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo has to use a ‘rap cartoon’ to appeal to us black folks to get the Chi-Vi vaccine, it’s all the more reason why ALL black folks should avoid this like a cross-burning in McKittrick, California, on a Friday night.”

  62. 2016 Saturday: In the South Carolina GOP Primary, Donald Trump wins with 32./5% of the vote.  In the Democratic Primary in Nevada, Hillary Clinton wins big with 52.6% of the vote.  She smoked Bernie Sanders good!  Finally, Gov. Jeb Bush suspends his bid to win the 2016 GOP presidential nomination on this date.  Say it ain’t so, Jeb!
  63. 2017 Monday: Government officials in the South Sudanese state of Unity declare a famine which affects 4.9 million people.  Meanwhile, Democrats and other assorted and sundry anti-Trumpers turn out in the streets, screaming, “NOT MY PRESIDENT!  NOT MY PRESIDENT!”  WTF is wrong with these people?  What’s wrong with them is the fact that they are communists, and many are members of various rent-a-mobs.  It is what it is.  Elsewhere, across the Atlantic in Great Britain, millions turn out in the streets to protest over there- coincidence?  Nope.  Still, the British government is considering canceling his upcoming state visit because they’ve bought into the bogus Trump-Russia collusion scam.
  64. 2018 Tuesday: During London Fashion Week, Queen Elizabeth II makes a surprise appearance.  Meanwhile, in the lovely socialist hellhole of Venezuela, the government of Nicolas Maduro announces the creation of its own virtual currency, the petro, to counteract their ongoing financial crisis.  Folks, nothing is going to help until the people overthrow the communist thugs destroying their country. 
  65. 2019 Wednesday: Sadly, Payless ShoeSource files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy protections and announces plans to shutter all its stores in the United States.  Payless has been a staple of American retail for decades so it’s extremely sad to see them vanish.   Speaking of American business giants, Ford Motor Company announces it will stop selling trucks in South America.  Guess the Japanese are taking over down there.
  66. 2020 Thursday: Judge Amy Berman Jackson- an Obama judge- gave Roger Stone- friend and confidant of President Donald J. Trump a 40-month sentence for lying before Congress and a few misguided, unfortunate tweets.  The gist of all this is that conservatives cannot laugh or joke because liberals will charge them with heinous crimes and do everything possible to send them to prison, hopefully, to die there if possible.  Meanwhile, President Trump speaks to a crowd of freed prisoners and slams what is happening to Stone.  Originally, Stone faced a possible sentence of 7-9 years in prison for doing practically nothing but that is how things now are in the United States of America.  Meanwhile, Stone’s defense team is seeking a new trial seeing as how the foreman of the jury, Tomeka Hart, is a raving lunatic leftist who hates Trump and said numerous prejudicial things against Stone and Trump in social media and then lied to Judge Jackson, claiming she could be ‘impartial.’  We think this ho needs to go to prison herself.  Finally, fallout from the previous night’s NBC-TV Democratic debate shows Michael Bloomberg at the bottom of the Democratic cesspool following a dismal debate performance.  Sad.
  67. 2021 Saturday: Day 32 of the Biden Regime.  First, Senator Joe Manchin, D-West Virginia, says he plans to vote ‘NO’ on Joe Biden’s pick to head the White House Office of Management and Budget based on her past bigoted comments towards Republicans.   Next, following Newsmax’ Greg Kelly commenting on one of Joe Biden’s rescue dogs’ appearance, social media went berserk criticizing Mr. Kelly.  What Kelly said was true- the dog needs veterinarian care and a good bath.  ASAP.   Next, the earpiece in Joe Biden’s ear has him say, ‘things could be back to normal by 2022.’  F—k you, Joe, things are going to go back to normal NOW.  We are not going to put up with this bull crap much longer.  #OpenUpNow!  The earpiece also tells Joe Biden to ‘reassure the American people the vaccines are safe,’ the ones he claims did not exist prior to him becoming president.
  68. 2021 Saturday A: Republican Senator Tom Cotton proposes a bill with which to cut the Chi-Coms out of Hollywood.  Everyone knows the Chi-Coms have infested Hollywood as you cannot miss Chi-Com companies in the opening credits anymore.   Meanwhile, United Airlines is trying to discover which one of its employees spilled the beans on the family of Ted Cruz’s recent vacation to Cancun, Mexico.  Like they care.  Next, a GOP group plans on using $25 million to enable Republicans to win back the House in 2022.  In other GOP news, Representative Madison Cawthorne tells Newsmax that the ‘Second Amendment is NOT about hunting but about having the ability to topple a tyrannical government.’  Elsewhere, Representative Devin Nunes, R-CA, also informs Newsmax that the ‘Dems think they’re in Hollywood and that the National Guard are extras on a filmset.’  It’s time for those troops to return home and for the fences to come down.  The ONLY reason the fences remain UP and the troops patrol the streets of Washington, D.C., is because they KNOW they did not win the 2020 Presidential Election.  Period.   Finally, U.S. Congressman Tom Reed, R-NY, says he’s eyeing a potential run against failed Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo.  Hell, AOC could beat this piece of dog s**t hands down.
  69. 2021 Saturday B:  The storms in Texas have killed loads of people, many of whom may not be known for weeks what with people freezing to death because of lack of electricity, natural gas, and mishaps with propane and generator exhausts.  Add to that the fact that people WITH power are finding they have five-figure power bills.  Insane.  Joe Biden authorizes aid for Texas and mumbles something stupid about visiting Texas ‘sometime soon.’  Elsewhere, Ohio State University says it’s considering a debt-free degree.  Here is how you do it- instead of forcing students to take on massive quantities of debt for a degree, how about the schools take 6-percent of their annual income for- say- 30 years or until the debt is paid.  After all, everyone needs to earn money to pay bills.  Once the debt is paid, the former students can then donate time back to the universities to educate the next generation.  Saddling people with hundreds of thousands of dollars of school debt is insane and must stop while at the same time, universities have expenses, too.
  70. 2021 Saturday C: COVID-19 Daily Update:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 110,903,820 confirmed cases, +356,790, 2,456,069, confirmed deaths, +8,454, and 62,511,666 confirmed recoveries, +250,283.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 28,260,716 confirmed cases, up 84,288 from yesterday’s reporting, 500,833 confirmed deaths, UP 2,870, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- NO more updates on this number thanks to Joe Biden, going on for nearly as long as #46 has been in the White House.  Coincidence?  You be the judge. 
  71. 2021 Saturday D: NOTE- in the White House 32 DAYS, apparently the U.S. will NO longer report the number of recoveries.  Shame on you, Chi-Com Joe.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 171,732 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, talk is cheap, what are YOU going to do about it?  YOU are a worse murderer than Andrew “Killer” Cuomo is in the Empire State- he’s only killed 46,233 people, half of them in nursing homes.   Speaking of this fool who threatens ALL critics with ‘you’ll be sleeping with the fishes tonight,’ he still won’t apologize for the deaths his criminal policies caused.    Note- Chef Bea O’Malley- lifelong member of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day- says “IF Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo has to use a ‘rap cartoon’ to appeal to us black folks to get the Chi-Vi vaccine, it’s all the more reason why ALL black folks should avoid this like a cross-burning in McKittrick, California, on a Friday night.”  Although she does not live in New York, the fact that this drooling mongoloid talks DOWN to black folks and encourages them to get the vaccine is enough reason to send every black and brown person to go running in the other direction.  Thank you, Bea.
  72. 2021 Saturday E: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,521,418 confirmed cases, 48,842 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,778 confirmed cases, 430 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 336,184 confirmed cases, 4,886 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the country: Alabama.  Currently, they have 485,986 confirmed cases, 9,590 confirmed deaths, but NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 744,513 confirmed cases, 5,526 confirmed deaths, and 693,730 confirmed recoveries.  For the heck of it, let’s look at one other country: Colombia.  Currently, they have  2.217,001 confirmed cases, 58,511 confirmed deaths, and 2,110,562 confirmed recoveries.   In other Beijing Bat Bug news, Pfizer seeks to store their vaccines at less frigid temperatures with which to ease coordination.
  73. 2021 Saturday F: In the Russian arctic, the Nornickel processing plant partially collapses killing three workers and wounding several others.   Speaking of Vladimir Putin’s Russia, Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny loses his appeal and won’t be leaving prison anytime soon.  YOU should never have returned to the former USSR as the next time they poison you, you won’t be taken to Germany for treatment.  Elsewhere, a top official from the UN International Atomic Energy Agency- aka IAEA- is heading to Iran to visit with them regarding the jump-started JCPOA.  Meanwhile, a UN report says that Erik Prince violated an arms embargo on Libya’s rebel groups by shipping them weapons and mercenaries.   In other news, Joe Biden, and Canada’s Justin Trudeau plan to have a ‘virtual summit’ so they can discuss common shared interests between our two countries- like getting the Keystone XL Pipeline up and running again?  We can only hope.
  74. 2021 Saturday G: Having mentioned Texas’ energy grid collapse and the winter storms trashing the area, Representative August Pfluger, R-TX, says that ‘propping up solar and wind is what has caused problems in Texas.’  He also mentions that Joe Biden only approved disaster declaration for 77 of the 254 counties in the Lone Star State when in fact, the declaration of disaster should be for every county in the state.  We agree.  We have friends in Texas and all of them say things are extremely bad there.  Elsewhere, we learn that the left-wing U.S. Department of Justice is investigating seven police officers from five police departments across the country because these people happened to have been in Washington, D.C., on January 6, 2021.  Next, famed attorney and legal professor Dr. Alan Dershowitz tells Newsmax TV that the liberals have become ‘radical and intolerant.’  To us, this means they have become communists.  Time to fight back.  
  75. 2021 Saturday H: Stick around for tonight’s Super Lotto and Powerball drawings.  Here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3536 with a prize of $22 million on the line: 02, 05, 08, 21, 45, and Mega 11.  Out of 118,110 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $39,709.  The winning ticket was sold at Dolce Expresso in San Jose, CA 95112.  Next, here are the results for tonight’s Powerball Drawing #822 with a $78 million prize on the line: 04, 08, 22, 32, 58, and Powerball 04.  Out of 59,166 winning tickets, the highest winners were two people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $29,272 apiece.

ENDNOTES:

[v] We promoted the music of the great California rock band, Spirit- and the music of its members- beginning on Monday, 18-June-2012 through Friday, 10-August-2012.  We hope you will seek this band out and add it to your growing collection of top-quality rock music. This included the music of Jo Jo Gunne.

[vi] We truly look forward to promoting the music of Cheap Trick in the next decade or so.

  62. 2020 Monday: The impeachment trial of President Donald J. Trump resumes with the defense putting on its second day of arguments in support of the 45th president.  Some of the points made by the team are devastating for the partisan Democrats seeking to topple him.   Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms send high-ranking officials to Wuhan to investigate WTF is going on there with the COVID-19 epidemic.   Meanwhile, Germany confirms its first case of the rapidly spreading virus.
  63. 2021 Wednesday: Former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo joins the conservative Washington, D.C., think tank, the Hudson Institute.  They are proud to have him and look forward to a glorious future.  Mr. Pompeo raises warnings about Beijing’s control over the current ‘president.’  Meanwhile, the GOP is attempting to respond in real time to all the moves the Biden administration is rapidly doing.  We hope so because ‘President’ Biden is going to ruin the country if not stopped.   Speaking of Biden-initiated damage, Senator Steve Daines says that ‘Biden is returning America to the 1970s’ when we were dependent upon foreign countries for our supply of energy.  We must fight all the bogus Climate Change executive orders the senile 46th president is forcing down the throats of the American people.  Elsewhere, sniveling left-wing groups are braying for Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene’s resignation over past remarks ‘advocating violence’ against Democratic leaders such as drooling octogenarian House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi.  Grow up and shut up.
  64. 2021 Wednesday A: ‘President’ Joe Biden calls Texas GOP Congressman Chip Roy ‘un-American’ after Congressman Roy said, more of less of the 46th president’s mask mandate that #46 could kiss his rear end. So what?  What Democrats said about Trump was far worse so ‘Beijing Biden’ should STFU.  Next, ‘President’ Biden says he’s going to reopen the Obamacare markets so people can rush out and get them some Obamacare once again.  Wow.  Speaking of ‘Beijing Biden,’ people are curious as to WHY he remains MUM on Chi-Com repression as well as its continued lies that ‘Wuhan virus no come from Wuhan but come from outside China.  No good Imperialist running dog Yankee send this crap to PRC and then blame us.’  Sure, we did, sure.  Meanwhile, a new poll suggests Americans are growing eager to receive their vaccine for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  NOT us, we are content to wait at the very back of the line, after felons, illegal aliens, and foreign countries.
  65. 2021 Wednesday B: YouTube extends its ban on former President Donald J. Trump.  Next, Google plans to launch a new Website in Australia amid content payment battle between the massive search engine and the Australian government.   Meanwhile, BOTH Twitter and Facebook are attempting to make it appear that they are ‘neutral’ by shutting down some Antifa and other leftist groups accounts.  All in a day’s work.  Speaking of Antifa, journalist Andy Ngo is returning to the relative safety in England over death threats spewing from the pie holes of Antifa thugs.  Mr. Ngo says the authorities in the U.S. have done nothing about the threats, even when he provided them with personal information.  That’s left-leaning America for you.
  66. 2021 Wednesday C: Once again, the Cancel Culture strikes as famed conservative pitcher, World Series winner and advocate for autistic children, Steve Schilling denied a place in the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame.  Elsewhere, a Wisconsin pharmacist- Steve Brandenburg- who corrupted more than 500 doses of the vaccine for the Chi-Vi pleaded guilty in a federal court to multiple charges, each of which carries a 10-year-maximum penalty.  Apparently, he subscribed to ‘conspiracy theories’ and ‘alternative histories,’ which seems to be a common charge nowadays, but we do not condone what he did.  Speaking of COVID-19, a recent CDC study shows ‘low spread of the virus in schools.’  Thus, the question- why are the schools still closed?
  67. 2021 Wednesday D: A coalition of left-wing activists launch a campaign in support of ‘President’ Joe Biden’s immigration reform bill meaning allow in millions of illegals, make them citizens, and give them all benefits while everyone pays for it.  Elsewhere, in New York City, a NYPD officer is recovering in the hospital after being shot in the low back by a perp the night before.  Of course, Mayor Bill Di Blasio shows ‘concern.’  Meanwhile, a hostage situation at a children’s hospital in Austin, Texas, leaves two people dead.   Next, New York Republican lawmakers introduce a bill to help restaurant owners and employees in their state even if Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo won’t.   Speaking of corrupt governors, a Southern California GOP group calls for incompetent Golden State Governor Gavin Newsom to resign.
  68. 2021 Wednesday E: ‘President’ Joe Biden signs three executive orders today- all dealing with racial equity and climate change- bringing the number of orders signed in the first eight days to 40- an unheard-of number- which tells us he does not expect to continue without opposition for much longer.  Opposition from where?  No one knows.  Elsewhere, Goldman-Sachs CEO David Solomon receives a pay cut of $10 million over his firm’s ties to the 1MDB Malaysian bribery scandal.   Speaking of corruption, a UK lawmaker is accusing HSBC of aiding the Chi-Coms in their Hong Kong crackdown. 
  69. 2021 Wednesday F: Virginia Senator Tim Kaine, Democrat, says ‘Democrats should set aside impeachment and seek censure of former President Donald J. Trump.  Meanwhile, former Trump White House Chief of State Mark Meadows says that President Biden is putting America last with all his executive orders.   Elsewhere, religious liberties advocates are fearful over the ‘tumultuous days ahead under the Biden administration.’   Next, the Netherlands are facing the worst civil unrest in four decades as people have grown increasingly angry over the harsh China Virus lockdowns and restrictions in that Western European nation.    
  70. 2021 Wednesday G: A U.S. terrorism alert- political violence might be coming.  Of course, political violence is coming, and they know it: another false flag operation around the time the U.S. Senate conducts the second Trump impeachment trial, Antifa violence with members dressed as Trump supporters once again, hence why 7,000 National Guard troops remain in Washington, D.C.  WHEN the Antifa violence erupts, the Democrats will use it as yet another pretext for taking more rights away from the American people.  ALL Trump supporters MUST avoid any public demonstrations.  Speaking of former President Trump, his popularity among Republicans is at 81-percent. Meanwhile, Rep. Andy Biggs, R-AZ, says Joe Biden’s immigration policies (or lack thereof) are drawing armies of illegals to the southern border.   Elsewhere,  in the first week of the Biden administration, we see loss of tens of thousands of jobs, tens of thousands more dead from the Chinese Virus, and SIX MILLION more returned to the Food Stamp rolls after a steep decline in Food Stamp use under the previous administration thanks to a booming economy.
  71. 2021 Wednesday H: Actress Cloris Leachman dies at age 94.  Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken sees a ‘long road ahead to an Iran deal.’  We already had one- choke them out of existence.  No wonder Israel is on high alert regarding the Islamic Republic.  However, new Secretary of State Blinken seeks a close cooperation with the Chi-Coms which is understandable because both he and his boss, President Joe Biden have benefitted from Chi-Com largesse.  Spooky.  Elsewhere, Dick Morris tells Newsmax TV that the Biden administration is WRONG in banning the 1776 Commission.  We concur.
  72. 2021 Wednesday I: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 100,739,720 confirmed cases, +538,462, 2,170,237, confirmed deaths, +15,707, and 55,684,777 confirmed recoveries, +367,853.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 25,769,724 confirmed cases, up 165,678 from yesterday’s reporting, 431,377 confirmed deaths, UP 4,253, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP- UNKNOWN- same number as yesterday’s.
  73. 2021 Wednesday J: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,234,088 confirmed cases, 38,224 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,903 confirmed cases, 404 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 307,880 confirmed cases, 4,245 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Vermont: currently, they have 11,379 confirmed cases, 172 confirmed deaths, and 7,696 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 621,590 confirmed cases, 4,605 confirmed deaths, and 542,345 confirmed recoveries.  
  74. 2021 Wednesday K:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,303.17, DOWN 633.87 points (-2.05%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,270.60, DOWN 335.47 points (-2.61%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,750.77, DOWN 98.85 points (-2.57%).  The price of GOLD is $1,837.70 per troy oz., -7.20 (-0.39%) while the price of SILVER is $25.24 per troy ounce, -0.144 (-0.57%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,069.70 per troy oz, -9.30 (-0.86%) while the price of COPPER is $3.54 per pound, -0.02 (-0.56%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,310.50 per troy oz, -14.50 (-0.62%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.39 per barrel, -0.46 (-0.87%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.48 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.28.  Next, one American dollar equals 0.000033 Bitcoin.   
  75. 2021 Wednesday L: Fed Chairman Jerome Powell said virus uncertainty remains high and called on Congress to pass more stimulus to boost the U.S. Economy.   Yet, the country is trillions of dollars in debt.  The best way to repair the damage caused by the Wuhan Virus is to REOPEN the economy, permit the American people to return to work, seal the borders to all illegal aliens, and offer low-cost recovery loans like what happened following the San Francisco Earthquake (the original one) and subsequent fire.  That is how Bank of America became as powerful and as big as they are.  In other news, the FBI arrested journalist Doug Mackey today for political memes he shared online back in 2016.  WTF?  Is this man a CRIMINAL?
  76. 2021 Wednesday M: Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3529 with a $15 million jackpot on the line: 09, 10, 16, 30, 46, and Mega 13.  Out of 117,151 winning tickets, the highest winners were three people who had FIVE numbers but no Mega for a prize of $12,297 apiece.  One ticket was sold at Circle K at El Cajon, CA, 92019, the next at the Dollar Plus and Party Supplies, in Vallejo, CA 94589, and the third at the Wen’s Donut and Bakery, South El Monte, CA 91733.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #815 with a pot of $20 million up for grabs- 17, 33, 35, 42, 52, and Powerball 09.  Out of 54,394 winning tickets, the highest winners were two people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $14,217 apiece.
  77. 2022 Thursday:  Stick around, dear friends…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album released by Fairport Convention- “Fame and Glory”- came out on January 12, 2009, and features a delightful collection of tunes from this legendary British folk-rock group and their collaboration with Breton composer, Alan Simon.  Of all British bands of this nature, Fairport Convention- and the Strawbs- have gone the distance and what a distance it has been.  It must be horribly tough for archivists to cull through hours and hours and hours of music, seeking the perfect tidbit, the perfect nugget, the perfect audio keepsake for fans- novice and veteran alike- to cherish forever.  We hope you will visit your favorite site for the absolute best in rock and popular music and consider adding it to your collection.  We think you will be extremely glad that you did.  Seek it out now.

BBB. 2020 Friday: Prior to President Donald J. Trump’s visit to Ohio the previous day, Republican Governor Mike DeWine claimed to have had a positive test for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu. Today, his office declared it to be a false alert, that he did NOT have the Wuhan Virus. Well, we know that Governor DeWine is a RINO and that he does not want to appear with President Trump so there you go. What a shame.

The reason for these out-of-control wildfires in the Golden State is poor forest management by state authorities. They would rather kiss the rear-ends of environmentalist groups than to do what is right by the people of the state- the U.S. citizens, which is. Meanwhile, the ‘democratic’ People’s Republic of China bans the Disney movie, “Christopher Robin” (from Winnie the Pooh fame) because the character had the audacity to mock the communist thug running the country, Xi Jinping.
  53. 2019 Wednesday: ICE goes to town in Mississippi as agents raid chicken-processing plants and round up seven hundred or more illegal aliens. About time.

The entire eastern part of Canada had been in an uproar and law enforcement authorities were scouring large areas searching for the two scumbags.
  54. 2020 Friday: Prior to President Donald J. Trump’s visit to Ohio the previous day, Republican Governor Mike DeWine claimed to have had a positive test for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu. Today, his office declared it to be a false alert, that he did NOT have the Wuhan Virus. Well, we know that Governor DeWine is a RINO and that he does not want to appear with President Trump so there you go. What a shame. Meanwhile, employment statistics for the month of July show a net gain of 1.763 million new jobs filled, that unemployment in the country had dropped to 10.2 percent and that of all the jobs gained, one-third of them were in the leisure and hospitality industry. Unemployment for all categories is down but especially for black and Hispanic Americans. No matter what the Democrats do, they cannot cripple the economy. Elsewhere, New York Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo says that schools in the Empire State will reopen in the fall for all students. Finally, “Pro-China Joe” Biden continues trying to clarify his statements from earlier in the week that he is ‘not a racist’ and that he ‘loves black folks.’  Uh, okay, Joe, okay. We KNOW you are a racist and that since your earliest days in the U.S. Senate, you have backed every segregationist move that came your way. Enough is enough, already!
  55. 2020 Friday A: Various teachers’ unions around the country continue sniveling and whining about ‘how dangerous it is for them to return to the classrooms in the fall due to Wuhan Virus Crisis concerns,’ to which, we say, “IF you can’t do it, then step the hell aside and allow others to do the job” as well as urge President Trump to find ways by which to terminate all teachers who will not return to the classrooms.  We must find ways by which, we can crush public sector employees’ unions because this is bulls**t. Besides, teachers’ unions want to defund cops, make the Green New Deal real, and all manner of left-wing socialist crap. However, one way by which, we can make sure the kids and teachers can socially distant is to DEPORT ALL ILLEGAL ALIENS AND THEIR KIDS and you will find classrooms 50-percent vacant. DO THIS NOW! Never let a good crisis like the Chinese Virus go to waste, DEPORT ALL ILLEGALS BUT ESPECIALLY THEIR KIDS! Once done, the test scores of American children will skyrocket as they will not have to restrict their pace to that of the ignorant illegals.  Meanwhile, news hits that the Democratic Party does NOT want the “Baby Evita,” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Sandy Cortez, aka AOC, to speak at their upcoming convention. Who can blame them? The girl is bat crap stupid! Elsewhere, the Democrats in Congress continue demanding a $3 trillion COVID-19 relief bill atop the previous trillion dollars spent on this Chi-Com lab-engineered pandemic. If anyone should be $3 trillion, it should be the Democratic Party’s masters in Beijing!
  56. 2020 Friday B: The president of Lebanon- Michel Aoun- announces that one of two things sparked the ginormous explosion that toppled much of the port section of Beirut on Tuesday: human error or human intent. He asked the president of France for help in determining if a missile or an aircraft in the vicinity might somehow have caused the godawful explosion that has killed close to two hundred people, injured 4,000 or more, as well as caused the disappearances of numerous others. The AICPENDBLOG.COM believes it was an Iranian weapons cache that a moron dropped a cigarette butt into, or the Israeli Mossad took action to stop a Hezbollah (we put nothing past POS murderer Hassan Nasrallah) or Hamas’s plot against them.
  57. 2020 Friday C: Here are today’s Chi-Com Virus Statistics for the globe: 19,160,806 confirmed cases, UP by 407,889 cases, 716,083 confirmed deaths, UP by 9,741 deaths, and 11,605,114 confirmed recoveries, UP by 303,093 recoveries. Here are the numbers for the United States: 5,001,681 confirmed cases, UP by 54,024 new cases, 162,419 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,147 new deaths, and 2,454,578 confirmed recoveries, UP by 22,449 new recoveries. (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them).
  58. 2020 Friday D: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 538,416 confirmed cases, UP 8,436 cases, 10,011 confirmed deaths, UP by 142, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 2,914 confirmed cases, UP by 151, 29 confirmed deaths, UP by two, and 1,440 confirmed recoveries, UP by thirty-eight. Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 60,917 confirmed cases, UP by 833, 1,653 confirmed deaths, UP by twenty-nine, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, will not share the number of confirmed recoveries. Shame on these flipping Democrats.
  59. 2020 Friday E: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 27,433.48, UP 46.50 points (+0.17%). Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  11,010.98, DOWN 97.09 points (-0.87%). Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,351.28, UP 2.12 points (+0.063%). Price of GOLD: $2,046.10 per troy oz., +18.10 (+0.89%) Here is the price of SILVER: $28.40 per troy oz., +0.86 (+3.12%). Price of PLATINUM: $982.60 per troy oz., +11.60 (+1.20%). Here is the price of COPPER: $2.79 per #, -0.002 (-0.07%). Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $41.60, +0.38 (+0.92%). Today, one dollar U.S. = 6.97 PRC yuan.
  60. 2020 Friday F: Joe Biden’s overall national poll has dropped to a lead of 6.8 percent over President Donald J. Trump. Meanwhile, President Donald Trump announces he will extend unemployment benefits to the end of the year. He says he will forgo school loan repayments for the time being and that evictions will be put on hold until sometime in the fall. He also announces aid for Lebanon in the aftermath of what appears more likely to have been a terrorist attack in that beautiful nation. President Trump also says- yet again- that the Dept. of Homeland Security is ready, willing, and able to go into Portland, Oregon, and end the seventy-six straight days of rioting that has been trashing that once beautiful city. It is clear that Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler is in league with the Marxist scum. We say, “Send in former Blackwater Special Ops and WHACK ‘em!”

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Although Mick Abrahams was only a member of Jethro Tull for the first album, it always seemed that the brief period was something to which he clung, and which clung to him. Thus, we have him cranking out “This Was” as he would have played it. The album for you today is ‘Mick Abrahams- Original Member of Jethro Tull’ “This Was,” and album that came out on August 15, 2010. Joining guitarist Abrahams are Mike Summerland (bass and vocals), Paul Burgess (drums), and Steve Dundon (flutes and vocals). Fascinating how the music has a much more bluesy feel which is what Jethro Tull would have been like had he and Ian Anderson not had musical differences. Ah, well, we hope you will seek it out and consider making it a part of your listening rotation or playlist. Enjoy.

ENDNOTES:


[i] We look forward to promoting the music of UFO and of the Michael Schenker Group at some point within the next year.  We hope you will remain vigilant as to the day that we do.

[ii] 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.  We thank you.

[iii] We hope to present the music of the J. Geil’s Band at some point within the next five years.  One of the great American bands, they most certainly deserve to be heard and celebrated by the readership of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day.
