  57. 2017 Wednesday: Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein appoints former FBI Director Robert S.

  59. 2019 Friday: Taiwan becomes the first Asian nation to legalize same-sex marriage as a vote by parliament confirms it.  Based on this alone is reason enough as to WHY the civilized world must welcome Taiwan- the Republic of China, aka Nationalist China, aka FREE China- back to the United Nations as an original founding member.  Elsewhere, a federal judge in Virginia sentences a former CIA officer- Kevin Patrick Mallory- to a 20-year stretch in a federal prison for having spied on behalf of the Chi-Coms.  Meanwhile, the U.S. House of Representatives passes the Equality Act which prohibits discrimination based on sexual preferences and gender identity.  (Note- there was a time when people kept this crap to themselves ut no more- thus we now have a law).
  60. 2020 Sunday: Here are today’s COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis statistics for the globe: 4,710,614 confirmed cases, 315,023 confirmed deaths, and 1,732,344 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 1,516,343 confirmed cases, 89,932 confirmed deaths, and 281,192 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which, we have chef-bloggers, California, Hawaii, and Washington state, here are the stats, California first: 78,839 confirmed cases, 3,261 confirmed deaths, BUT NO number of confirmed recoveries: POLITICS.  Next up, Hawaii: 640 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 572 confirmed recoveries; thank you, Gov. Ige.  Finally, here is Washington state’s stats: 18,433 confirmed cases, 1,001 confirmed deaths, but, like California, 0 number of confirmed recoveries. 
  61. 2020 Sunday A: Now, interesting note here: people are criticizing Russia for not sharing their REAL stats, they say the number of deaths are too low.  Well, Russia said today they are only listing those citizens actually killed by the coronavirus and not those who might have died with the virus but from other things.  Would that not be great if the CDC would do the same thing, and would it not be great if the CDC forced every state to report the actual statistics?  Here’s Russia’s stats: 281,752 confirmed cases, 2,631 confirmed deaths, and 67,373 confirmed recoveries.  IF anyone is lying about their numbers, it’s the communist Chinese, the nation that gave this crap to the entire world.  Here are their numbers: 88,423 confirmed cases, 4,634 confirmed deaths, and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  People’s Republic of China: NOTHING BUT LIARS.
  62. 2021 Monday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 164,253,597 confirmed cases, +523,609, 3,403,704  confirmed deaths, +10,308 and 144,165,892 confirmed recoveries, +84,530.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,744,062 confirmed cases, UP 21,893 from yesterday’s reporting, 600,504 confirmed deaths, UP 339,[vii] and 27,193,861 confirmed recoveries, UP 57,841.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[viii]   
  63. 2021 Monday A: NOTE: Since JOE BIDEN became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 284,283 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 175,326 deaths.     
  64. 2021 Monday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,769,895 confirmed cases, 62,698 confirmed deaths, and 2,012,591 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,293,980 confirmed cases, 36,139 confirmed deaths, and 1,891,240 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 33,834 confirmed cases, 492 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 424,930 confirmed cases, 5,684 confirmed deaths, and 205,072 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Wuhan repatriated: they have 3 confirmed cases, 0 confirmed deaths, and 3 confirmed recoveries.[ix]   In other COVID-19 news, the Lone Star State reports NO new Chi-Vi deaths two months after Joe Biden called the state leadership ‘Neanderthals’ because they ended the mask mandates.  My, my, my.  Meanwhile, the director of the Centers of Disease Control was busy defending the mask mandate.  (Note- millions of Americans no longer believe masks work and that they have become a more a political statement than they were ever about health.  After all, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci said in the beginning of the Chi-Vi crisis that ‘masks were ineffective,’ then they were, then perhaps two were required, then maybe even goggles (that one vanished quickly), and finally 3, 4, or more masks were necessary.  BULLS**T.  Hey- why NO earmuffs, Dr. Fauci?).
  65. 2021 Monday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,159 confirmed cases, 6,389 confirmed deaths, and 832,093 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Albania, an ancient nation: 132,032 cases of the virus, 2,435 confirmed deaths and 125,419 confirmed recoveries.[x]     
  66. 2021 Monday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,327.79, DOWN 54.34 points (-0.16%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,379.05, DOWN 50.93 points (-0.38%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,163.29, DOWN 10.56 points (-0.25%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $66.30 per barrel, +0.03 (+0.03%).  The price of GOLD is $1,869.70 per troy oz., +2.10 (+0.11%) while the price of SILVER is $28.36 per troy ounce, +0.09 (+0.30%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,245.70 per troy oz, +1.20 (+0.10%) while the price of COPPER is $4.73 per pound, +0.02 (+0.38%).[xi]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,906.73 per troy oz, +5.51 (+0.19%).[xii] The price of RHODIUM is $28,400.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (+0.00%).[xiii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000023.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.44 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.77.     In Turkmenistan Manat, one greenback equals 3.49 and in Ugandan Schilling, a buck equals 3,523.94 and in Ukrainian Hryvnia, one dollar equals 27.51 of theirs.[xiv]   In other business news, the availability of fresh oranges and coffee may soon be in question or worse, prices will rise uncontrollably because Brazil is fighting a water shortage.  (Note- there was a time when we made or grew many of the things our country required to improve life for the American people whereas at some point a few decades back, we outsourced everything to other nations.  Globalism does not work nor is it wanted).  
  67. 2021 Monday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.132 per gallon, $2.893 in Florida, $3.854 in Hawaii, and $3.539 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- Virginia: $2.936.  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- Saudi Arabia: $2.251 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,298,240,723,054 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.
  68. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– First, today is Day 55 for ‘Border Czar Kamala Harris NOT visiting the southern border.  Second, the Acting Director of ICE Tony Pham admits that once Immigration and Customs Enforcement dumps illegal aliens in the interior of the country, they no longer monitor them.  Next, Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-TX 1st congressional district, blasted the Joe Biden regime on failing to fulfill its duty to the American people and putting an end to the invasion along the southern border.  Senator Tommy Tuberville, R-AL, says that U.S. Department of Homeland Security Director Alejandro Mayorkas ‘is not taking the border crisis seriously.’  Meanwhile, One America News released updates stats on the numbers: the cost of caring for the tidal wave of illegal aliens on the American taxpayers is- $489,79,264.  Next, here are the numbers for the illegals that have flowed into the country since January 20, 2021- 1,532,565 illegals.  The total cost of caring for these illegal aliens this year now sits at $149,530,181,632.  Finally, the current number of illegal aliens lurking within the U.S. is around 35,532,564 which means, we are being overwhelmed. 
  69. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden Regime News I– Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says that ‘Joe Biden could erase $1.7 trillion in student loan debt with the stroke of a pen.’  (Note- of course but that does NOT mean that debt simply vanishes.  Someone is left holding the bag).  Next, Joe Biden approves the sale of $735 million in military aid to Israel as they fight to survive.  In other Joe Biden news, news reports suggests that pressure is increasing on both him and the Federal Reserve to do something about rising inflation.   Meanwhile, Joe Biden seeks to codify Roe even though Mississippi and other states are passing common sense laws regarding the murdering of the unborn.  (Note- funny how when it comes to slaying the unborn within their mother’s womb, it’s ‘my body my choice’ whereas when it comes to allowing the American people to remove their masks, it’s NOT my body, my choice.  HIV-AIDS patients should be having to show health cards, too, instead of, uh, like in San Francisco, one does not have to inform their partner of their HIV-AIDS status).
  70. 2021 Monday H: Joe Biden News–  Last year, Joe Biden reportedly made $607,336 in earnings and paid a federal income tax rate of 25.9-percent.  In other Joe Biden news, that nut-job, Rep. Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, DS-MI 13th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden is taking orders from Benjamin Netanyahu’ and urges the United States to condemn Israel.  STFU jihadist.
  71. 2021 Monday I: Political News I–  Journalist Jeff Greenfield says that the ‘GOP is united and that it’s rallying around President Donald J. Trump.’  Next, (and this is strange), the Department of Homeland Security is trembling in its jackboots that for some unspecified reason, domestic terrorists might be planning on launching attacks during the rollback of mask mandates and the lessening of the Wuhan Flu.  (Note- not clear as to why they believe something as stupid as this; then again, they could have some operatives ready to launch new FALSE FLAG OPERATIONS.  We guess we shall see).  In other news, President Donald J. Trump is scheduled to speak at the GOP Convention in North Carolina on June 05, 2021.  Finally, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, says that the only one benefitted by the ‘mask mandates’ is Joe Biden.
  72. 2021 Monday J: Social Media News And Big Tech News– The CEO of Cameo says that President Donald J. Trump can join their platform.   Next, Vimeo dumps My Pillow guy, Mike Lindell.  Meanwhile, Judge Mark L. Wolf says the court may take Twitter to task over allegations that the social media site prohibits or bans conservative speech while promoting far-left, loony tunes speech.  Good.  Bust them up.  Elsewhere, Parler is back in the App store and also has a new CEO.  In other BIG TECH news, the Wall Street Journal reports that Bill Gates may have been removed as head of Microsoft over a lengthy affair with an underling, i.e., an employee.  Add to his woes the fact that ties reportedly exist between him and murdered pedophile, Jeffrey Epstein.
  73. 2022 Tuesday: Yes, we know, we are running behind but business is back!

[v] Not sure as to when we will get around to doing the music of Uriah Heep, but we hope to do it at the same time we promote the music of Hawkwind.  We hope you will remain alert as to the day that we do.

136. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, MAY 16, 2022

2021 Sunday H: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News- the recount of ballots in Arizona has already yielded evidence that criminal activities did indeed occur in the subsequent hours after the 2020 Election. There is word that ‘Senator’ Mark Kelly could be recalled, and that Martha McSally returned to her position. We await further developments.

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

SPRING SESSION 2022

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 189

136. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, MAY 16, 2022:

Vice President Levi P. Morton; U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Norman J. Coleman; U.S. Interior Secretary James Harlan; U.S. Secretary of State William H. Seward; U.S. Treasury Secretary Daniel Manning; Black Sabbath featuring Ronnie James Dio, King Crimson featuring Robert Fripp, Nazareth featuring Darrell Sweet, Nirvana featuring Krist Novoselic, Robin Trower featuring James Dewar, Savoy Brown featuring Roger Earl, and the Who:

  1. 1003 Monday: The 140th Roman Catholic Pope John XVII assumes his role as the Vicar of Christ on this date.  He would guide his global flock from today until November 06, 1003.
  2. 1605 Monday: The 233rd Roman Catholic Pope Paul V became the shepherd of all Christians on this date.  He would guide his global flock from today until January 28, 1621.
  3. 1611 Monday: Future 240th Roman Catholic Pope Innocent XI is born Benedetto Odescalchi.  He would pick up his Holy Cross on September 21, 1671 and would lead his global flock from then until August 12, 1689.
  4. 1770 Wednesday:  Marie Antoinette, age 14, married the future King Louis XVI of France, who was only 15 years old.
  5. 1771 Thursday: The Battle of Alamance, a pre-American Revolutionary War battle between local militia and a group of rebels called the Regulators, took place on this date in Alamance County, North Carolina.
  6. 1792 Wednesday: Denmark abolishes the slave trade.
  7. 1801 Saturday: In Florida, N.Y., future 24th U.S. Secretary of State William H. Seward is born.  He would serve under Presidents Abraham Lincoln and Andrew Johnson from March 06, 1861, to March 04, 1869.  During this time, he bought Alaska from the Russians, something many saw as foolhardy and a waste of taxpayers’ money.  In fact, so many derided the purchase, they called it “Seward’s Folly;” that is, until massive gold deposits were discovered there.  In 2019, the 45th president of the United States sought to buy Greenland from Denmark, and everyone laughed at him, including the Europeans.  Imagine how important Alaska is to the United States geopolitically and the same could be true of Greenland.  We shall see.
  8. 1817 Friday: Regular steamboat service up-and-down the Mississippi River begins on this date.
  9. 1824 Sunday: The future 22nd Republican vice president of the United States—Levi P. Morton—is born in Shoreham, Vermont, on this date.  He served under President Benjamin Harrison from March 04, 1889, to March 04, 1893.
  10. 1827 Wednesday: In Richfield Springs, N.Y., future first U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Noman J. Coleman is born.  A future Democrat, Secretary Coleman would serve under President Grover Cleveland from April 03, 1885, to February 14, 1889.
  11. 1831 Monday: The future 37th U.S. Treasury Secretary Daniel Manning is born.  A future Democrat, he would serve under President Grover Cleveland from March 08, 1885, to March 21, 1887.
  12. 1860 Wednesday: At Chicago, the Republican Party selects Abraham Lincoln as its candidate for the presidency of the United States.
  13. 1861 Thursday: The Confederate government offers war volunteers a $10 premium to join the ranks.
  14. 1863 Saturday: During the Vicksburg Campaign, the bloodiest fighting occurs at Champion’s Hill in Mississippi.
  15. 1865 Tuesday: The 8th U.S. Interior Secretary James Harlan assumed office on this date.  A Republican, he served under President Andrew Johnson from today until August 31, 1866.

Stanton, falling one vote short of the two-thirds majority required to convict; 10 days later, the trial ended after two other articles of impeachment went down in flames, too.  The problem was Johnson wanted to follow the wishes of assassinated President Abraham Lincoln who wanted to treat the South with leniency while Lincoln’s holdover Cabinet members wanted to crush them.

  24. 1914 Saturday: The American Horseshoe Pitchers Association organizes in Kansas City.
  25. 1918 Thursday: The U.S. Congress passes the Sedition Act of 1918, making criticism of the government an imprisonable offense.
  26. 1920 Sunday: Pope Benedict XV- the 258th Roman Catholic Church pontiff- canonized Joan of Arc.  Meanwhile, former Republican Vice President Levi Morton died in Rhinebeck, NY, on his birthday at age 96.

  29. 1939 Tuesday: The government began its first food stamp program in Rochester, New York; under future President Barack Obama, it is at the highest levels ever before seen.  Elsewhere, the Philadelphia Athletics and the Cleveland Indians met at Shibe Park in Philly for the first baseball game played under lights in the American League.  
  30. 1940 Thursday: Prime Minister Winston Churchill returns to London from Paris as the Nazi juggernaut rolls across France.  For the Germans, the conquest of France is going better than expected.  French troops are in full retreat while the British are struggling to reach the Channel Coast.  General Heinz Guderian’s XIX Panzer Corps is breaking away from the rest of the steam-rolling army to try to beat the Brits to the coast so as to complete the trap and bag tens of thousands of prisoners.

  33. 1944 Tuesday: The first load of 180,000 Jews arrives at Auschwitz Concentration Camp.
  34. 1946 Thursday: Roger Earl, future original drummer of both Savoy Brown[i] and Foghat[ii] was born in London, England, on this date as was Robert Fripp—future multi-instrumentalist and ongoing original member of the British Prog-Rock band, King Crimson[iii].  Mr. Fripp was born in Wimborne Minster, England.  Elsewhere, Jack Mullin presented the first magnetic tape recorder to the world on this date.

  42. 1969 Friday: Pete Townsend and Roger Daltrey of the Who[vi] undergo arrest on assault charges.
  43. 1975 Friday: Japanese climber Junko Tabei became the first woman to reach the summit of Mt. Everest.  Meanwhile, Muhammad Ali scores a technical knockout over Ron Lyle in the 11th round of their heavyweight title fight.  Lyle’s pro record went to 30-3-1 while Ali’s record went to 47-2 and he retained the WBA, WBC, and Ring Magazine’s heavyweight champion of the world boxing titles.  Ali’s next fight would be against Joe Bugner in June.  Lyle’s next fight would be against the legendary Earnie Shavers in September.

  58. 2014 Friday: California burning- near San Diego, California, authorities inform the public that at least 20,000 acres have gone up in smoke within the county.   This is the toll of 11 wildfires.  This crap goes on year after year because Democrats will NOT permit proper forest management, won’t build new dams to collect fresh water instead of allowing it to flow out to sea, and putting so many restrictions atop PG&E and other power companies to fight global warming by pursuing renewable energy goals that are unrealistic.  The state requires good governance and it’s not from the Democrats.

  62. 2018 Wednesday: As talks on a summit between North Korea and the United States continues, Pyongyang says that it ‘might cancel the talks if the U.S. continues demanding unilateral disarmament of its nuclear weapons.  They know what happened to Libya that gave up its WMDs and things did not end well for the regime of Moammar Gaddafi.   Likewise, talks that were supposed to occur between North and South Korea are canceled as a protest of U.S. demands.
  63. 2019 Thursday: According to the Global Drug Survey, English-speaking peoples are more likely to get drunk throughout the year than do, non-English speakers, with the British getting drunk the most, an average of 51 times per year.  Folks, this is bogus information as Russians drink more than anyone and communist nations’ citizens (or authoritarian ones) drinking more than anyone anywhere else.   Elsewhere, the Trump administration finally does something that should have happened long ago and that is to cancel $929 million federal grant funding the disastrous California High-Speed Rail project, a project that seems to enrich Democratic politicians and their Chi-Com overseers.  (Note- we await Elon Musk’s Hyperloop which will make the train what it is- an expensive boondoggle).
  64. 2020 Saturday: Thanks to communist China, the Wuhan Virus Crisis continues as the disease continues causing problems around the world.  However, information coming from independent sources within the totalitarian state report as many as 750,000 cases of the coronavirus with possible number of deaths ranging from 150,000-to-250,000.  Since the authoritarian state won’t tell the world the truth, we must rely on these brave sources willing to put their lives and those of their families at risk to get the truth out to the rest of the world.  Here are the global statistics for today: 4,626,632 confirmed cases what with 311,363 confirmed deaths but 1,679,428 confirmed recoveries which is amazing, the number of recoveries compared to deaths.  In the United States, we have 1,497,244 confirmed cases, 89,420 confirmed deaths, but 272,525 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states where we have chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington state, here are the stats, state by state, beginning first with the Golden State: 76,793 confirmed cases, 3,204 confirmed deaths, but of course, 0 confirmed recoveries- California, give us the information!  You are no better than flipping communist China!  For Hawaii, we have 638 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 564 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Gov. Ige.  For the once great state of Washington, now beset by a socialist state government, here are the stats: 18,288 confirmed cases, 999 confirmed deaths, but like that fellator Gov. Gavin Newsom in California, NO number of confirmed recoveries because Gov. Inslee won’t share the stats.  Vote these scumbags out of office as soon as possible.  
  65. 2021 Sunday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 163,716,770 confirmed cases, +6,113, 3,393,335  confirmed deaths, +117 and 143,320,593 confirmed recoveries, +77,970.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,715,951 confirmed cases, UP 20,704 from yesterday’s reporting, 600,147 confirmed deaths, UP 308,[x] and 27,136,020 confirmed recoveries, UP 38,423.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[xi]   
  66. 2021 Sunday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 283,944 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 175,665 deaths.     
  67. 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: 3,768,962 confirmed cases, 62,687 confirmed deaths, and 2,011,220 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,292,004 confirmed cases, 36,085 confirmed deaths, and 1,885,265 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 33,761 confirmed cases, 492 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 424,930 confirmed cases, 5,684 confirmed deaths, and 205,072 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Grand Princess Ship: they have 122 confirmed cases, 7 confirmed deaths, and 115 confirmed recoveries.[xii]   
  68. 2021 Sunday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,119 confirmed cases, 6,382 confirmed deaths, and 832,072 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- South Korea, a rising power in East Asia: 132,290 cases of the virus, 1,903 confirmed deaths and 122,163 confirmed recoveries.[xiii]     
  69. 2021 Sunday D: Friday’s Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,382.13, UP 360.68 points (+1.06%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,429.98, UP 304.99 points (+2.32%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,173.85, UP 61.35 points (+1.49%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $65.51 per barrel, +0.14 (+0.21%).  The price of GOLD is $1,844.00 per troy oz., +5.90 (+0.32%) while the price of SILVER is $27.53 per troy ounce, +0.16 (+0.58%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,231.10 per troy oz, +8.30 (+0.68%) while the price of COPPER is $4.06 per pound, +0.01 (+0.19%).[xiv]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,892.50 per troy oz, +29.61 (+1.03%).[xv] The price of RHODIUM is $28,400.00 per troy oz., +400.00 (+1.43%).[xvi]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000023.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.44 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.94.     In Trinidad and Tobago Dollar, one greenback equals 6.76 and in Tunisian Dinar, a buck equals 2.73 and in Turkish Lira, one dollar equals 8.44 of theirs.[xvii]    
  70. 2021 Sunday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.128 per gallon, $2.893 in Florida, $3.862 in Hawaii, and $3.535 in Washington state.[xviii]    Let’s look at one other location- Utah: $3.359.  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- United Arab Emirates: $2.247 per U.S. Gallon.[xix]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,294,956,742,867 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xx]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  71. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– And they used to complain about President Donald J. Trump using Department of Defense funds to defend the southern border, we learn today that Joe Biden has diverted $2 billion from federal healthcare programs to care for illegal aliens overrunning the border.  Wow.   Meanwhile, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich says that Joe Biden should relieve “Kooky Kamala” Harris of her duties as border czar because in 54 days in this position, the least popular woman in the United States has yet to visit the border.
  72. 2021 Sunday G: Foreign News / Overseas News–  Australia announces it is going to keep its borders closed to all but its own citizens returning home until mid-2022.   Next, the U.S. Department of Defense says that ‘yes indeed, Israel has the right to defend herself.’  Hell, we already know that.  They are on a crusade to eliminate Hamas and other Islamist scum from the planet.  We say continue. 
  73. 2021 Sunday H: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– the recount of ballots in Arizona has already yielded evidence that criminal activities did indeed occur in the subsequent hours after the 2020 Election.  There is word that ‘Senator’ Mark Kelly could be recalled, and that Martha McSally returned to her position.  We await further developments.
  74. 2021 Sunday I: Political News I– South Carolina reelected Drew McKissick to continue on as the state’s GOP chair of the state.  Next, Governor Ron DeSantis, R-Fl, has reached an agreement with the Seminole Nation for expanded casino development and gambling.  (Note- Chef Cherry and hubby are excited by this news- Hawaii never went for casinos).   Elsewhere, new polls show that IF Joe Biden does not run for a second term in 2024 and “Kooky Kamala” Harris somehow dips her corrupt toe in the water, her popularity as a candidate is in the pits.  (Note- we could have told them that- she was a disaster in California, too.  Thank God she’s gone).
  75. 2021 Sunday J: Miscellaneous News I–  Joe Exotic is seeking an early release from the slammer due to a possible cancer diagnosis.   Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, 1,500 trailers meant to house the homeless are sitting vacant in parking lots.  In other news, the FBI has re-classified the Alexandria, Virginia, baseball shooting of a few years back as ‘domestic terrorism.’  The dumb SOBs said at first it was a ‘case of suicide by cop.’  How flipping stupid do you think all of us are?  The ‘domestic terrorism’ call was the ONLY call.  (Note- for the BIG GOVERNMENT folks, they need another generation or two of misinformed souls before they can begin pulling the scams on us).

118. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, APRIL 28, 2022

2003 Wednesday: U.S. forces open fire on a group of Iraqi protesters in Fallujah, Iraq, after they began throwing things and making threats. This would be the focal point for the buildup to what would become known as the Battle of Fallujah in 2004, a make-or-break effort in the unnecessary invasion launched by the George W. Bush administration. (Note- we think this is a prime example of the Deep State influencing a president into a war and then when it goes wrong, they abandon them to their fate).

  72. 2021 Wednesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,736,197 confirmed cases, 61,480 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,222,546 confirmed cases, 35,030 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 32,397 confirmed cases, 478 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 400,386 confirmed cases, 5,510 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Montana, a state with a superb governor: they have 108,402 confirmed cases, 1,556 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[xi]   The White House is slamming Joe Rogan for being so brash as to urge healthy young people NOT to get the Chi-Vi vaccine.  We concur.  We aren’t getting this s**t.  Meanwhile, Pfizer’s antiviral COVID-19 pill could be out at the end of 2021.  In other news, the New York Times says that Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov went to great lengths to cover up the massive number of deaths he caused by sending COVID-19-positive patients BACK into nursing homes thus to infect and then eliminate them.  This is diabolical and this thug must go to prison.[xii]
  73. 2021 Wednesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 838,285 confirmed cases, 6,361 confirmed deaths, and 830,273 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one non-country- Slovenia, the birthplace of the greatest first lady in U.S. history: 238,421 cases of the virus, 4,236 confirmed deaths and 223,286 confirmed recoveries.[xiii]

  75. 2021 Wednesday 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 $4.00 per gallon, $2.794 in Florida, $3.782 in Hawaii, and $3.427 in Washington state.[xviii]    Let’s look at one other location- Montana: $2.817.  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 third lowest gasoline price in the world- Angola: $0.923 per U.S. Gallon.[xix]  Much to be said for the former Portuguese colony.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,224,518,271,345 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xx]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  76. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Joe Biden is sending $310 million to Guatemala to ‘help them’ stem the tide of illegal aliens flowing north through their country to the United States; we’ll see.  Speaking of the border, Customs and Border Patrol reports that last month, the feds took 170,000 illegal aliens into custody.   Elsewhere, the Biden regime-controlled U.S. Department of Justice has quietly repealed Trump era restrictions on the amount of federal aid going to ‘sanctuary cities’ and ‘sanctuary states.’   Meanwhile, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is blasting the Biden regime for NOT permitting him entry into the illegal alien holding pens in Donna, Texas.
  77. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden Regime News I– U.S. Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm is receiving loads of criticism over the numerous conflicts of interest surrounding her such as her connections to an electric vehicle automaker.   The secretary has millions of dollars of stock in Proterra, a company that will benefit- as will she- depending upon which way she goes in doling out taxpayer dollars.  Wow.  Next, Joe Biden taps anti-Trumper Harris County, Texas, Sheriff Ed Gonzalez to head Immigration and Customs Enforcement, aka ICE.   Meanwhile, tonight’s ‘Joe Biden address to a joint session of Congress’ will be devoid of a ‘designated survivor.’  So says White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki because hardly anyone will be in attendance.  
  78. 2021 Wednesday H: Joe Biden Regime News II– Tonight is the NIGHT, folks, Joe is going to reveal yet another multi-trillion bill, his so-called “Family Plan,” that will require of ALL Americans forced preschool for 3-and-4-year-olds so we can indoctrinate the kids at an earlier age and teach them to rat out their parents.  This is NOT good, and parents must resist this crap.  Political strategist says that Joe Biden ‘won’t reveal the sticker shock’ which means it is going to be COSTLY.   Next, Joe Biden is going to name longtime Marxist political hack, Rahm “Dead Fish” Emanuel to become U.S. ambassador to Japan.  Finally, former governor and Missouri U.S. Senate candidate Eric Greitens says that “Biden-Harris first one-hundred days is marked by failure.”  You are preaching to the choir, sir.  (Note- although we mentioned this yesterday, we will mention it again- the Washington Post, aka WAPO, says it ‘won’t fact check “Pro-China Joe” Biden the way it did President Donald J. Trump.’  Wow).[xxi]
  79. 2021 Wednesday I: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says the ‘Biden administration (i.e., the regime) displays schizophrenic undertones as it seeks de-escalation and confrontation at the same time.’  Absolutely true.  Next, as the truth continues to hit the presses over Climate Czar John F. “Lurch” Kerry’s numerous Logan Act violations in doing business with Iran while a private citizen, Congressman Michael McCaul, R-TX 10th congressional district, says that the allegations against ‘Lurch’ appear to be ‘somewhat treasonous.’   Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district says, ‘Kerry MUST resign.’  We concur.  Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken acknowledges that the U.S. pullout of Afghanistan could lead to a takeover of the country by the Taliban.  Finally, the U.S. sees major rollbacks on the sanctions placed atop Iran so the U.S. can return to the bogus Iran nuclear deal.
  80. 2021 Wednesday J: Whacked-Out News Of The Day– In the craziest news of the day, we learn that crackhead/pedophile presidential son, Hunter “Crack Pipe” Biden is going to teach a class on FAKE NEWS at New Orleans’ Tulane University.  WTF?  In other whacked-out news, Democrats are demanding that the FCC block the sale of a popular radio station so that Miami Latinos CANNOT listen to conservative talk radio.  WTF?  Meanwhile, co-founder of the San Francisco-based $2 billion startup company, Iterable, Justin Zhu, was fired for micro-dosing LSD prior to a board meeting back in 2019.  Seems rather late to be terminating someone for something that occurred 2.5-3 years ago.  Strange.  Finally, a contestant on “Jeopardy!” made the ‘OK’ gesture and is under fire for being a white supremacist.  People, give it a F***ING REST already.  Enough is enough.
  81. 2021 Wednesday K: Political News I– Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says that while the Dems claim to SUPPORT Israel, they put forth a true anti-Semite POS such as Colin Kahl for the No. 3 position at the Pentagon: the undersecretary for policy.  (Note- Mr. Kahl says he will take a bipartisan approach to his job.  Boy, oh, boy, oh, boy- what a guy).  Next, President Donald J. Trump says of Congresswoman Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, that in so many words, she is a ‘LOSER.’   Moving on, Governor Doug Ducey, RINO-AZ, is trying to save his job by signing a tough abortion bill preventing abortion for genetic abnormalities.   Meanwhile, Congressmen Jeff Duncan, R-SC 3rd congressional district, and Doug Lamborn, R-CO 5th congressional district, are pushing back HARD on the Biden’s regime pushing of the bogus Critical Race Theory which is Critical Race Theory BS.  Good for you gentlemen!  Finally, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich says, ‘don’t denigrate Arizona’s 2020 Election audit.’  Amen.
  82. 2021 Wednesday L: Political News II– In some shocking news today, the feds swooped down on ‘America’s Mayor’ and Donald J. Trump personal attorney Rudy Giuliani’s Manhattan apartment and removed all of his electronic devices in an early morning raid.  Mr. Giuliani offered to meet with the authorities and to hand over his devices but no, much like they did during the raid on Roger Stone’s home, they wanted to INTIMIDATE the man, trying to tie to him the crimes committed by Hunter Biden in the Ukraine.  Likewise, they also raided the home of Victoria Toensing and Joe DiGenova, two more big Trump supporters and legal eagles.   In other news, as California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom continues to whine and cry over the recall effort against him, one of the recall advisers says that ‘one-third of the signatories are Democrats, one-third are independents, and one-third are Republicans.’  Everyone wants Gavin Newsom OUT of office ASAP.[xxii]   Finally, Texas Department of Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller is working with Stephen Miller to defeat Joe Biden’s RACIST policies on equity rather than equality when it comes to providing aid to farmers.
  83. 2021 Wednesday M: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– An alternate juror on the Derek Chauvin murder trial says that ‘mob riots, protests, and the racial climate did NOT influence the jury’s decision.’  Sure.  Uh huh, of course not.  Next, following a cop shooting of a black suspect, a North Carolina judge denies a request for the video cam footage.   Next, a video shows that a California man died while the cops were holding him.  Here we go again.   Regarding firearms, a new poll shows that support for heavier gun laws is lacking support among the American people.
  84. 2021 Wednesday N: Notable Departure– NASA Apollo 11 astronaut Michael Collins is dead at the age of 90.
  85. 2021 Wednesday O: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto And Powerball Draws–  Here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3555 with a $41 million pot on the line tonight: 14, 18, 19, 33, 37, and Mega 19.  Out of 116,245 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person with FIVE numbers BUT NO MEGA for a prize of $41,234.  The winning ticket was sold at a Chevron in Coarsegold, CA 93614.   Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #841 with a $116 million pot on the line: 16, 18, 35, 39, 53, and Powerball 21.   Out of 55,428 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Powerball for a prize of $859,829.  The winning ticket was sold at Stater Brothers 188 in Grand Terrace, CA 92313.
  86. 2021 Wednesday P: The Wrap-Up– Amazing to see Joe Biden’s ‘address’ in which, he praised the police, noting most of them are okay.  Here is how socialism works- you grind law enforcement and the military in the dirt, kick them in the teeth, beat them up, purge them, and then when they can take no more, you make a deal: IF you don’t want things to return to the way they were- you being public enemies and all- you will now serve as storm-troopers and go after our enemies.  YOU can do whatever you want to them and without any oversight or parameters.  This is evil- glad I am now in Israel- Mo.  We love and cherish our freedoms… Meanwhile, the three people involved in the death of Ahmaud Arbery have been indicted on hate crimes charges.   A federal grand jury indicted Travis McMichael, Gregory McMichael, and William “Roddie” Bryan today which is good.  These three crackers have much for which to answer.
  87. 2022 Thursday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole– 512,067,467 confirmed cases, +785,425, 6,255,853 confirmed deaths, +2,360 and 465,824,561 confirmed recoveries, +566,075. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 82,950,138 confirmed cases, UP 61,891 from yesterday’s reporting, 1,020,124 confirmed deaths, UP 350,[xxiii] and 80,618,357 confirmed recoveries, UP by 32,438.    We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[xxiv]
  88. 2022 Thursday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 570,831 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 206,076 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 463 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.              
  89. 2022 Thursday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 9,216,406 confirmed cases, 90,343 confirmed deaths, and 8,963,856 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,964,981 confirmed cases, 73,928 confirmed deaths, and 5,816,157 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 248,405 confirmed cases, 1,418 confirmed deaths, and 239,022 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,493,194 confirmed cases, 12,686 confirmed deaths, and 1,445,808 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Navajo Nation: they have 53,381 confirmed cases, 1,758 confirmed deaths, and 51,519 confirmed recoveries.[xxv]   
  90. 2022 Thursday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 4,071,491 confirmed cases, 10,695 confirmed deaths, and 4,033,472 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Nauru, 226th place on the list: 4 cases of the virus, 1 confirmed death and 3 confirmed recoveries.[xxvi]                         
  91. 2022 Thursday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,916.39, UP 614.46 points (+1.85%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,871.53 UP 382.60 points (+3.06%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,287.50, UP 103.54 points (+2.47%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $105.11 per barrel, +3.09 (+3.03%).  The price of GOLD is $1,894.80 per troy oz., +6.10 (+0.32%) while the price of SILVER is $23.17 per troy ounce, -0.30 (-1.26%).  The price of PLATINUM is $909.90 per troy oz, -0.50 (-0.05%) while the price of COPPER is $4.44 per pound, -0.04 (-0.86%).[xxvii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,249.53 per troy oz., +46.71 (+2.12%). The price of RHODIUM is $18,200.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,095,000.00 per CNY/T, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,039.00 per USD/T, -54.50 (-1.76%). The price of ZINC is $4,136.00 per USD/T., -83.50 (-1.98%).   The price of COCOA is $2,575.00 per USD/T, +7.00 (+0.27%).  The price of COFFEE is $218.40 per USD/T, +2.45 (+1.13%).  The price of CORN is $817.00 per USD/T, +1.50 (+0.18%).  The price of LUMBER is $1,043.80 USD 1,000 board feet -8.60 (-0.82%).[xxviii]   Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000025.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.62 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.95 euros, in Mexican pesos equals 20.45, and in Russian rubles, one dollar equals 70.25 of theirs.    In Rwandan Franc, one greenback equals 1,010.05 and in St. Helena Pound, a buck equals 0.80 and in El Salvadoran Colón, one dollar equals 8.75 of theirs.[xxix]       
  92. 2022 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.685 per gallon, $4.176 in Florida, $5.256 in Hawaii, and $4.691 in Washington state.[xxx]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Montana- $4.097.  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 30th LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Chad: $3.206 per U.S. Gallon.[xxxi] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,414,818,869,159 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxxii]  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 Luxembourg the SIXTH largest holder of U.S. debt is Brazil.  This nation holds $258,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  93. 2022 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– Sensing that Joe Biden is on the verge of mental collapse, Russia once again warned the United States of potential retaliation over America’s asinine sanctions.   Meanwhile, Senator Steve Daines, R-MT, says he ‘witnessed ample signs of Russian war crimes in Ukraine’ during a recent visit to that war-torn country.  Next, reports continue to arise of the Russian navy employing dolphins to guard their Black Sea base at Sebastopol.  This has been tried before but has never proven successful.  Still, with the Russkies, one never knows.
  94. 2022 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II– The Russians have raised rocket and missile attacks on Ukraine once again.  Several blasts rocked Ukraine’s capital city, Kyiv, today.   The British minister of defense- Ben Wallace- says that ‘Russia could become a cancerous growth in Ukraine.’  Meanwhile, Dick Morris told Grant Stinchfield on Newsmax this evening that if Russia were to use tactical nukes in Ukraine, ‘all bets would be off, and the U.S. must put troops on the ground in direct conflict with the Russkies.’  This is becoming more ludicrous by the day.  We cannot fight a land war with Russia in eastern Europe, it’s impossible to do and will lead to the Chi-Coms becoming the world’s master.  Not good.
  95. 2022 Thursday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Vice President Kamala Harris has been the nation’s ‘border czar’ for the past 391 days and even worse, she has not arrived to do her job in 305 days.  Our estimates of the rising costs associated with rising numbers of illegal aliens continues breaking records every day.  The cost of caring for the illegal aliens the past 118 days is $752,442,887.  Next, the cost of caring for the detritus of the world since the Biden-Harris regime grabbed power on January 20, 2021, is $42,498,248,630.  The number of illegal aliens encountered at the border since January 01, 2022, is approximately 1,203,637.  Finally, the conservative low estimate of illegal aliens in the country is 46,635,294.  We believe the numbers to be closer to 95-to-130 million which is unsustainable for any country and must be fixed now.  Deport ALL of them.  Now.  (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).
  96. 2022 Thursday I: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says the southern border is ‘broken because of Joe Biden’s attitude.’  George P. Bush, R-TX, says that the southern border is ‘out of control.’  Next, while testifying before the Congress, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas says that the only solution for solving the border crisis is to give every illegal alien who has swarmed across it amnesty.  Folks, not only this insane, it’s also the kill stroke for the United States.  It’s over, it’s done, it’s finished.  In other border-related news, Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, is seeking donations with which to bus illegal aliens into Washington, D.C.  While we think this is great, how about finding a way to push them back across the border into Mexico?   Simultaneously, Attorney General Ken Paxton, R-TX, is suing the Biden regime over its upcoming plan to lessen border security next month with the overturning of Title 42.  DHS Secretary Mayorkas says he believes there will be 18,000 or more encounters of illegal aliens per day once the pro-American Title 42 ends.  We must fight back against this evil.
  97. 2022 Thursday J: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer: $50.55 (2) AstraZeneca: $67.22 (3) Novavax: $44.27 (4) Merck & Company: $88.61 (5) Johnson & Johnson: $183.59  (6) BioNTech: $143.40 (7) Moderna: $142.52.
  98. 2022 Thursday K: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $98.09 (2) Boeing: $154.19 (3) General Dynamics: $242.20 (4) Lockheed Martin: $441.69 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $445.17.
  99. 2022 Thursday L: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Ansell Ltd.: $26.22 (2) DuPont: $67.58 (3) 3M: $147.21 (4) Honeywell: $189.92  (5) Teijen: $1,388.00.
  100. 2022 Thursday M: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News– (1) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $28.06 (2) Beyond Meat: $39.82  (3) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $69.55.
  101. 2022 Thursday N: Big Box Store Stock Prices (Follow the Money 5) News– (1) Wal-Mart: $156.21 (2) Lowe’s: $205.13 (3) Home Depot: $312.04 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $562.00 (5) Amazon: $2,891.93.
  102. 2022 Thursday O: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden endorsed a new bill that will funnel assets seized from Russian oligarchs to Ukraine.  Joe also asked Congress for an additional $33 billion in aid for Ukraine which means the Biden regime will most likely skim off 12-20-percent for the Biden Family’s coffers.
  103. 2022 Thursday P: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– A new Rasmussen poll pulls NO punches and says that a large majority of Americans blame Joe Biden for skyrocketing gas prices.   In other disastrous news for the Biden regime, the Chi-Coms and Iran are going to increase their mutual defense pact.  This is a direct slap in the face of slobbering Joe Biden.  In yet another problem for the feeble U.S. ‘president’- one who could not speak today at a ‘press conference’ of sorts without going totally BLANK in his thoughts, words, and speech- parental rights groups are pushing back with growing force over Joe’s suggestion that children do not belong to their parents but to the regime.  George Orwell could not have foretold the topics of his classic novel, “1984,” than what we are seeing today.
  104. 2022 Thursday Q: Joe Biden Regime News I– President Ron Klain, uh, excuse me, President Joe Biden, continues dangling the bait that the Biden regime could cancel all CURRENT student debt but not over $50,000.  Alas, it must be an election year for this carrot of the carrot of ‘reparations for slavery’ to be dangling in front of the young, dumb, and full of c*m voters.  Should Joe Biden cancel student loan debt, he will alienate all those who have struggled to pay their loans off who by far outnumber those who have not.
  105. 2022 Thursday R: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– The House select committee investigating (yeah, right) the FALSE FLAG EVENTS of January 06, 2021, announce their plan to hold at least eight public hearings, beginning in June, in the hope of somehow influencing the voters to vote ‘D’ on their ballots in November.  We suspect their ratings will be at the bottom of the crapper.  We also suspect the American people will become even more infuriated with the regime and its allies than they are now and if- we repeat- IF- the elections are honest, the Dems are going to go the way of the dinosaur.
  106. 2022 Thursday S: Big Tech News– CNN + threw in the towel today, two full days ahead of the scheduled shutdown on April 30, 2022.

117. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, APRIL 27, 2022

1975 Sunday: North Vietnamese infantry and armor encircled Saigon on this date. Although panic grips much of the populace of South Vietnam’s capital city, South Vietnamese troops are determined to hold out for as long as they can. Had not the Democrats in the U.S. Congress prevented President Gerald R. Ford from rushing in military supplies so the ARVN troops could fight on equal terms, this humiliating defeat would never have occurred. However, the Democrats being the pro-communist scum they are left the South to its fate. Evil.

  53. 2008 Sunday: News begins to break about a scumbag named Josef Fritzi in the town of Amstetten, Austria, had a special cellar in his house where he imprisoned his daughter Elisabeth from the age of 18 onward for the next 24 years.  He raped her and fathered seven children with her, three girls and four boys.  By the time the authorities discovered what this monstrous scumbag had done, he was age 74.  The trial was swift, and he received a life sentence.   We’re sorry, the Austrian government should have shot this POS.  
  54. 2009 Monday: A 23-month-old Mexico City toddler died at Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston, becoming the first swine-flu death on U.S. soil.  Meanwhile, a strong earthquake hammered Mexico, rattling nerves among residents already tense from a swine flu outbreak.  Elsewhere, former WBA heavyweight champion Greg Page died at home in Louisville, Kentucky, of positional asphyxiation.  He was 50 years old.  Over the course of his pro-career, he amassed a record of 58 fights, 48 wins (17 Kos), and  1 draw.  Finally, one of President Barack Hussein Obama’s Air Force One jets, a Boeing 747, and an F-16 fighter jet panicked New Yorkers as they circled over lower Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty for what turned out to be a photo op.  Many people believe this to have been staged, the president committing a heinous practical joke above a city scarred from the 9-11 Attacks eight years before.  What a POS.

Breyer breaks his shoulder on a fall from his bicycle and is taken to the hospital by ambulance.  Meanwhile, in Karachi, Pakistan, members of the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam, launch a terror attack killing 10 and injuring at least 25 people. 
  59. 2014 Sunday: The high court in Egypt dishes out some stiff sentences to pro-Mohammed Morsi rioters- 11 of them this time- of anywhere from 5 to 88 years in the slammer for running amok and rioting in the streets. 
  60. 2015 Monday: The 82nd U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder left office on this date.  A Democrat, he served under President Barack Hussein Obama from February 03, 2009, until today.  His successor, Loretta Lynch- the 83rd U.S. attorney general assumed office today and served until January 20, 2017.
  61. 2016 Wednesday: Unlike other European countries, Austria says “F— this” by limiting asylum claimants into their country and also reserves the right to reject people at their border.  Of course, human rights groups go haywire claiming this is an afront to all humanity.  Austria, we’re with you, Germany and Angela Merkel are NOT your friends.
  62. 2017 Thursday: Julius Younger, American virologist who helped create the Salk polio vaccine dies at age 96 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump softens his stance on NAFTA by saying he ‘seeks to renegotiate it.’

Trump.
  64. 2019 Saturday: Our ‘beloved’ Pope Francis, the 266th Roman Catholic pontiff, donates half-a-million bucks to ‘help’ migrants trying to reach the U.S. border via caravan who are stranded in Mexico City.  Let them remain there.  Meanwhile, a shooter opens fire at a synagogue in Poway, California, managing to slay one and wound three before being taken down himself.   God bless the victims.
  65. 2020 Monday: Thanks to the reopening of some states, the Stock Market has a momentous day.  The DOW Jones Industrial Average closes up 358.51 at 24,133.78; the S&P 500 closes up 41.74 at 2,878.48; and the NASDAQ closes up 95.64 at 8,730.16.  Excellent.  Meanwhile, the Wuhan Virus Crisis, the one the Chinese claim is ‘not theirs but came out of the United States’ continues causing problems.  Global statistics show that currently, we have 3,002,303 confirmed cases what with 208,131 confirmed deaths and 878,813 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 1,005,934 confirmed cases what with 56,329 confirmed deaths but 112,913 confirmed recoveries so things are looking good- most places.  California’s confirmed cases rest at 44,792 and at 1,755 confirmed deaths.  The Chinese continue lying about their numbers.  Elsewhere, people continue to speculate about North Korean thug dictator, Kim Jong Un, who has been absent from world view for the past two weeks.  Many speculate he contracted COVID-19 and is near or at death whereas others claim he is on a ‘holiday.’  We shall see.  Finally, apparent Democratic Party 2020 presidential nominee Joseph R. Biden remains mum on allegations he sexually abused a staffer back in the 1990s when he was a senator.  Say it ain’t so, Joe!
  66. 2021 Tuesday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 148,190,387 confirmed cases, +864,953, 3,126,361  confirmed deaths, +14,155, and 85,879,081 confirmed recoveries, +850,124.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 32,375,602 confirmed cases, UP 55,477 from yesterday’s reporting, 579,162 confirmed deaths, UP 806,[v] and 119,318,872 confirmed recoveries, UP 24,064.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[vi]  
  67. 2021 Tuesday A: Note: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, there have been 264,711 Chi-Vi deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, in another four to five weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    
  68. 2021 Tuesday 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: 3,735,524 confirmed cases, 61,477 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,217,368 confirmed cases, 34,958 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 32,349 confirmed cases, 478 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 399,331 confirmed cases, 5,498 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., South Dakota, the state with a damaged GOP governor: they have 122,228 confirmed cases, 2,663 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[vii]   
  69. 2021 Tuesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 838,217 confirmed cases, 6,359 confirmed deaths, and 830,088 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one non-country- Costa Rica, a bastion of freedom in Central America and where some of us might be becoming citizens if the pretender in the White House is not ejected out upon his flat ass: 241,240 cases of the virus, 3,168 confirmed deaths and 201,264 confirmed recoveries.[viii]

  71. 2021 Tuesday 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 $3.996 per gallon, $2.791 in Florida, $3.767 in Hawaii, and $3.421 in Washington state.[xiii]    Let’s look at one other location- Mississippi: $2.569.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The first country on the list is the second lowest gasoline price in the world- Iran: $0.227 per U.S. Gallon.[xiv]  Good for those Shiite lunatics  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,221,266,256,036 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  72. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Rep. Brian Babin, R-TX 36th congressional district, upbraids the Biden regime’s plan of dumping tens of millions of dollars on the Northern Triangle countries of Central America in the hope that dumping U.S. dollars on corrupt and sometimes criminal regimes will stop the ongoing flow of illegal aliens to the United States.   Speaking of the Biden regime, a new directive prohibits ICE from arresting criminal illegal aliens at courthouses across the country.
  73. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden Regime News I– The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is going to launch a major investigation into extremists…within its own ranks.  Sounding more and more like a communist regime in the making when governmental departments begin looking for enemies within their own ranks.  Next, Joe Biden wants to give the Internal Revenue Service $80 billion so they can step up tax collections and enforcement activities against shirkers unwilling to do their duty and pay higher taxes.  Of course, Democrats in arrears with the IRS will be entirely fine.[xvi]  Moving on, Joe Biden is going to Georgia tomorrow to celebrate his 99th day in office and to blast the GOP.  Oh, he also wants to propose FREE PRESCHOOL, yet another way of getting hold of America’s kids and indoctrinating them into believing there are a billion genders.  Finally, the Washington Post is going to end its ‘fact-checking’ of the lying Joe Biden.  (Note- Fake News strikes again).
  74. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– With feeble old Joe Biden in the White House willing to drop to his knees in front of the Iranian mullahs if the murderous thugs will A-L-L-O-W the U.S. back into the flawed nuclear deal, what do the Iranians do?  They cause problems for the U.S. Navy in the Persian Gulf, threatening our warships who then had to drive the IRG swift boats away.  (Note- we think the U.S. should sink Iran’s entire navy).  Meanwhile, as news continues to break about John F. Kerry’s numerous Logan Act violations, there are growing calls for a thorough investigation into the scumbag’s criminal activities.  Speaking of Kerry, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says that ‘John F. Kerry’s love of the Iran nuclear deal may have clouded his judgment.’  (Note- nope, Marco- Kerry is a traitor and should be treated as such).  His fellow senator, Rick Scott, R-FL, says that ‘IF the Iran allegations are true, John Kerry must leave government employ.’  Amen.  Bloomberg journalist Eli Lake says that the ‘Iran talks can do without Russian diplomatic mischief’ (so says a leftist).
  75. 2021 Tuesday I: Political News I– Nonagenarian House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi is limiting attendance for Joe Biden’s first ‘address’ to a joint session of Congress.  What?  Is he going to be like, a, uh, hologram?  Whatever happens, it’s going to be hysterical.   In California, Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom is sniveling and whining about the recall effort going forward against him.  He is blaming the GOP when it’s EVERYONE wanting to get his worthless butt out of office.  Still, many believe the Democrats are going to pull a fast one and somehow preserve the Smiler’s career by having him (we said this last year when or if “Kooky Kamala” Harris actually became the VP) appoint himself U.S. senator by having Senator Dianne Feinstein step down and him take her place.   The other possibility is that he will step down so the lieutenant governor can step in, so the state remains in Democratic Party hands.  We shall see.
  76. 2021 Tuesday J: Political News II–  President Donald J. Trump has endorsed Susan Wright for the Texas 6th congressional district.  Her husband, Rep. Ron Wright, died from COVID-19 and the 45th president hopes to have his widow take his place.   Next, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, is going to address a “Back the Blue” rally that is upcoming.  Speaking of the Peach State, 21 black political leaders are excoriating the Democrats for damaging their state by lying about the new voter law. 
  77. 2021 Tuesday K: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci makes yet another ‘promise’ to the American people- that the U.S. should see a ‘turning point in several weeks’ if we all do the right thing like wear masks and get the Chi-Vi vaccine.  We won’t put any money on that.   Next, although the liberals won’t give President Donald J. Trump any credit for the vaccine, they are now demanding he do a public service announcement to get his ‘Neanderthal followers’ to go out and get vaccinations- like good citizens.  What a load of crap.
  78. 2021 Tuesday K: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Famed Democratic strategist James Carville says that ‘wokeness is a problem for Democrats’ and that ‘we all know it.’   Next, news comes out that many state-run colleges now require new hires to commit to the promotion of far-left agendas.  Wow.  We knew this.  In other WOKE insanity, the CEO of VisuWell- Sam Johnson- found himself terminated from his job for asking why a foul-mouthed punk at a prom reception was wearing a dress and being a foul-mouthed little shit.  What?  People cannot say anything anymore.  This is what happens when two generations of young people don’t get the belt across their asses.  Spare the rod and spoil flipping generations.  If kids had been disciplined there would be NO WOKE movement.   Finally, Elon Musk is getting lambasted by the WOKIES about him hosting Saturday Night Live sometime next month.  WTF?  We thought Musk was a ‘cool guy.’[xvii]
  79. 2021 Tuesday L: Miscellaneous News I– Former Dallas PD Officer Amber Guyger who shot her black neighbor dead claiming she entered the wrong apartment and thought the man was an ‘intruder’ is appealing her sentence.   Next, Governor Kevin Stitt, R-OK, signed three anti-abortion bills limiting when abortions can occur.  Of course, the liberals are out running amok, demanding he be removed from office.  Wah, wah, wah.  Next, Senator Cynthia Lummis, R-WY, introduced a bill today that would permit people under age 21 to buy handguns.   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump says the ‘Democrats are insane to fight the Arizona 2020 Election audit.’  They are doing everything they can to stop it so that tells you all you need to know.
  80. 2021 Tuesday M: Miscellaneous News II– At the House GOP retreat, apparently tensions between hardcore RINO Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, are rising.  We are not sure as to why the two are having problems but of the two, Cheney is the least popular and needs to shut her mouth.  Moving on, Little Mayor Pete Buttigieg, the U.S. Transportation secretary, says that ‘from the start, Joe Biden has longed for a BIPARTISAN infrastructure bill.’  Yeah, sure.  Bulls**t.   Meanwhile, liberals are fearful that the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan is going to leave women in a dark place.  We guess we could stay there another 50 years and the plight of women in that s—hole country would…still be the same.
  81. 2021 Tuesday N: Miscellaneous News III– Britney Spears is set to speak at an upcoming court hearing regarding the highly unfair conservatorship in which, her father has placed her.   Next, states are fearful of SCOTUS taking the new concealed carry of firearms case in that it might lessen their power.  You can’t trust Chief Justice John Roberts. 
  82. 2021 Tuesday O: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw: Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1654 with a $319 million on the line: 15, 22, 30, 41, 42, and Mega 25.  Out of 120,216 winning tickets, the highest winners were THREE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $10,640 apiece.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 570,481 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 205,726 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 462 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.

  88. 2022 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 and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.680 per gallon, $4.168 in Florida, $5.249 in Hawaii, and $4.687 in Washington state.[xxv]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Mississippi- $3.776.  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 29th LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Pakistan: $3.035 per U.S. Gallon.[xxvi] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,412,638,051,610 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxvii]  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 Ireland the FIFTH largest holder of U.S. debt is Luxembourg.  This nation holds $288,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  89. 2022 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– The world-famous ‘border czar,’ Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the disaster befalling the country for the past 390 days.  Worse than that, it’s been 304 days since last she showed up to do a photo op.  The cost of caring for these uninvited illegal aliens for the past 117 days is a shocking $745,967,001.  Atop that, since the two derelicts became the ‘guardians of the Constitution and the American people,’ the nation has shelled out $42,491,772,744 to care for the leeches.  Since the first day of the year, we have seen 1,192,049 illegal aliens pour across the border and into the interior of the country.  NOT good.  Finally, the conservative low estimate of illegal aliens living in the country is 46,623,706.  We believe the number is treble that, possibly quadruple that.  NO nation can withstand this invasion, perhaps not even until November.  Our nation could soon be lost.  Time for Operation Wetback II.  Let’s round ‘em up and deport them ASAP out of the country and back to whence they came. (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).
  90. 2022 Wednesday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I– A new poll says that nearly half of all Israelis fear a second Holocaust is brewing.  Next, Russia releases American hostage, Trevor Reed, home to his family in an exchange for a Russian drug trafficker locked up in the United States.  The parents of Mr. Reed said it appeared their son’s treatment at the hands of the Russians was horrible.  F**king Russians.  Time to nuke them.   Speaking of the Russians and their horrible treatment of those whom they don’t like, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is demanding global control over Russia’s nuclear weapons stockpile.  Ukraine fears that the Russians might nuke them the more the Ukrainians continue mopping the floor with Russian blood.

  97. 2022 Wednesday N: Political News I– A new bill has come forth seeking to reinstate ALL U.S. military personnel terminated for refusing to undergo vaccination for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu virus.  Excellent.  Bring them back.  In other news, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas testifies on Capitol Hill where we learn that the Biden regime spent $72 million to extricate itself from federal contracts with which to complete construction on the border wall.  Wow.  Secretary Mayorkas says the Trump administration ruined the immigration system but has NO fixes to stop the seething tidal wave of humanity pouring across it.  Instead, he says that domestic extremism- WHITE POWER EXTREMISM- is the most potent threat facing Americans today.  While DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas was testifying before Congress, he raised concerns over what he said is the establishment of a ‘disinformation board’ with which to combat ‘misinformation.’  The board will be headed by ultra-leftist Nina Jankowicz, a fellow at the Wilson Center.
  98. 2022 Wednesday O: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3659 what with a $37 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 03, 11, 13, 23, 34, and Mega 23.  Out of 121,094 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $21,088 apiece.  One ticket was sold at the Arco AM/PM in Perris, CA 92571 while the other was sold at 7-Eleven in Sherman Oaks, CA 91423.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #981 with a jackpot of $454 million up for grabs: Out of 180,291 winning tickets, SIX people had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $16,226 apiece.

  57. 2004 Friday: Crazed Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr declares he will employ suicide bombers against U.S. troops should they make a move on his militias in the city of Najaf.  American and Coalition invaders are overrunning parts of the country in their quest for ‘weapons of mass destruction’ and then stamping out jihadis that the Shiites are preparing to begin lashing back at the so-called “Crusaders.”
  58. 2005 Saturday: At a checkpoint between Israel and the Gaza Strip, Israeli Defense Forces capture a 17-year-old Palestinian boy trying to smuggle four pipe bombs into Israel.

  61. 2008 Wednesday: After U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said yesterday that during Jimmy Carter’s time as president, he was advised ‘NOT to have direct talks with the Islamic terrorist group Hamas,’ the failed president appears before news reporters and claims, “NOT true.”  This idiot would have talked with anyone, even those who hate both the United States and Israel.
  62. 2009 Thursday: The International Monetary Fund says it believes economic recovery will commence sometime in the next year.   Elsewhere, the Iraqi government believes that since President George W. Bush invaded their country in 2003, at least 110,000 of their citizens have been slain in the unnecessary war.  How sad.   Add to that the fact today, two suicide attacks, one in Baghdad and the other near Baquba, claim the lives of 87 people who weren’t yet ready to commune with Allah but went anyway.  
  63. 2010 Friday: As the U.S. and the United Nations place demands atop the Jewish state, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu brushes off demands that it refrain from building new housing in its capital city of Jerusalem.  Meanwhile, the U.N. also is bitching that the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip is preventing the global body from ‘educating the poor little Palestinian tykes.’  Wah, wah, wah.
  64. 2011 Saturday: Chi-Com police stage a raid on a Tibetan monastery in Sichuan killing at least two people and wounding several others.  Ah, religious freedom in a communist hellhole.  Elsewhere, in Syria, while people are staging funerals for loved ones killed in rioting, Syrian government security forces kill another dozen or so mourners.  There will be more funerals for them.
  65. 2012 Monday: The trial of former senator and vice-presidential candidate John Edwards for misuse of campaign funds gets underway in North Carolina.  Elsewhere, famed bassist Chris Ethridge who played with the Flying Burrito Brothers[xi] (1968-69 / 1974-76 / 1990-93)—among other bands—lost his battle with pancreatic carcinoma on this date.  He died in his hometown of Meridian, Mississippi, at the age of 65.  Next, the Iranians are angry because a malware attack has hammered the National Iranian Oil Company.  Sucks to be you.  Finally, the White House is launching an investigation into its advance staff in the wake of the U.S. Secret Service scandal.
  66. 2013 Tuesday: In France, an amended bill legalizing same-sex (homosexual) marriage is passed, opening the door for Francois Holland to promulgate it.  Meanwhile, after the Chi-Coms float a flotilla of warships near Japan’s Senkaku Islands, Tokyo orders the Chi-Com ambassador to account for the actions of his countrymen.
  67. 2014 Wednesday: Facebook announces first-quarter profits of $642 million, an increase of nearly a factor of 3 over first-quarter profits in 2013, resulting in earnings of 25 cents per share versus the 17 cents per share expected by Wall Street.  Elsewhere, Ukrainian security officials discover that a Russian Orthodox Church in the eastern part of the country is a staging ground for Russian thugs attempting to terrorize that portion of the country.  That sounds like ‘Putin’ to us.  Obama, you must help these people against the Russian bear.  Plain.  Simple.  NOW.
  68. 2015 Thursday: On this date, Loretta Lynch wins confirmation in the U.S. Senate to succeed Eric Holder as the nation’s first attorney general.  She is the first African American female to hold this post.  Elsewhere, in one of the more tragic events in U.S. history, former General and former CIA Director David Petraeus pleads guilty in a federal court of sharing classified information with his biographer and lover.  The reason Petraeus found himself in this mess is because he REFUSED to back the Obama administration’s narrative on Benghazi.  The Bamster had knowledge of the victor of both Iraq and Afghanistan’s misdeeds and saved them, saved them for when he required them and when CIA Director Petraeus did not fall in line with the bogus narrative, word of the wrongdoing suddenly hit the news cycle. 
  69. 2016 Saturday: In what seems to be an annual thing, North Korea tells the United States that “IF you suspend military exercises with South Korea, maybe we’ll talk about nuclear disarmament.”  Elsewhere, German citizens in the city of Hanover are in the streets, protesting against President Barack Obama’s and the European Union’s proposed agreement, the Transatlantic Trade and Partnership deal, a deal akin to the Transpacific Partnership, which would tie the U.S. in with the Europeans.  However, the Germans aren’t having any of it and claim that if this ‘Obama deal’ becomes reality, jobs will be lost, wages will fall, environmental protections damaged, they are having none of it.
  70. 2017 Sunday: The North Korean news agency announces they scooped up an American citizen, Kim Sang-Duk, aka Tony Kim, as he sought to leave the country.  The bonehead was teaching classes at Pyongyang University, and we guess the North Koreans decided they wanted him to continue teaching longer than the man planned.  Yikes.   
  71. 2018 Monday: In North Korea, a major mishap occurs as a bus carrying a group of visiting Chi-Com tourists plunges off a highway in North Hwanghae, killing at least 32 of the visiting guests and four North Koreans.  Several others are injured and trucked off to an infirmary for treatment.  What the hell are the Chi-Coms doing visiting North Korea when they could have gone to Tibet or Xinjiang Province where they could tour the Muslim concentration camps? 
  72. 2019 Tuesday: In Myanmar, at least 52 jade miners die in a mudslide.  Meanwhile, in Malawi, the World Health Organization begins inoculating young people with the world’s first malaria vaccine.  The vaccine provides only partial protection against the killer tropical disease, but any protection is better than NO protection.  Elsewhere, ISIS figuratively thumps its chest and takes credit for the Easter Sunday bombings in Sri Lanka this past weekend.  Time to irradiate these murderous thugs.  
  73. 2020 Thursday:  The COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis, communist China’s ‘gift to the world’ continues taking lives, destroying economies, and being an over all pain in the ass for the entire planet.  Total confirmed cases for the globe sit at 2,699,338, confirmed deaths at 188,437, but confirmed recoveries sit at 737,735.  In the United States, there are 886,529 confirmed cases what with 50,162 confirmed deaths but 81,792 confirmed recoveries.  China continues claiming the same numbers what with 88,423 confirmed cases, 4,632 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  What a bunch of lying scum.  After the United States, the next nation with the most cases is Spain, then Italy, Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Turkey, and then communist China.  Meanwhile, the worst news for the United States is that another 4.4 million Americans are unemployed bringing the total number of unemployed Americans to 26 million.  This shocking statistic shows that every single job gained since 2008 is NOW GONE.  Time to exact a heavy price from the PRC by returning to a Two-China Policy recognizing Taiwan- aka Free or Nationalist China- as an equal nation if not the rightful owner of the mainland.

  75. 2021 Friday A: Note: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, there have been 260,967 CHI-VI deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, in another four to five weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    
  76. 2021 Friday 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: 3,727,713 confirmed cases, 61,261 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,196,502 confirmed cases, 34,759 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,977 confirmed cases, 474 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 392,013 confirmed cases, 5,466 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Idaho, one of the few sane places left in the country: they have 186,081 confirmed cases, 2,029 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[xiv]   
  77. 2021 Friday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 837,892 confirmed cases, 6,346 confirmed deaths, and 829,424 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one non-country- Ethiopia, one of the oldest Christian nations on the globe: 247,989 cases of the virus, 3,496 confirmed deaths and 185,107 confirmed recoveries.[xv]    
  78. 2021 Friday D:   Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,043.49, UP 227.59 points (+0.67%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,016.81, UP 198.40 points (+1.44%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,180.17, UP 45.19 points (+1.09%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $62.04 per barrel, -0.10 (-0.16%).  The price of GOLD is $1,776.70 per troy oz., -1.10 (-0.06%) while the price of SILVER is $26.05 per troy ounce, -0.02 (-0.10%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,232.00 per troy oz, -1.10 (-0.09%) while the price of COPPER is $4.33 per pound, 0.00 (-0.08%).[xvi]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,855.15 per troy oz, +18.52 (+0.65%).[xvii] The price of RHODIUM is $29,000.00 per troy oz., -200.00 (-0.68%).[xviii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000020.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.49 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.82.     In Japanese Yen, one greenback equals 107.91 and in Jordanian Dinar, a buck equals 0.71.[xix]  
  79. 2021 Friday 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 $3.981 per gallon, $2.802 in Florida, $3.760 in Hawaii, and $3.401 in Washington state.[xx]    Let’s look at one other location- Maine: $2.822.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,205,305,997,186 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  80. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden Border Catastrophe News I–  Senators John Cornyn, R-TX, and Kyrsten Sinema, D-AZ, along with members of the House, presented the bicameral Bipartisan Border Solutions Act with which to tackle the ongoing BORDER CRISIS CAUSED BY THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION’S INEPTITUDE would create- if passed- four regional border processing facilities so the Biden Regime would not be dumping illegal aliens into every neighborhood in every state as the regime is doing now.   Elsewhere, Congressman Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, said that the illegal alien brats are in OBAMA-BIDEN CAGES and NOT Trump cages.  
  81. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden News I– Drooling Joe Biden found himself for being mocked as at his recent ‘climate summit’ with world leaders via ZOOM, he was the ONLY leader wearing a mask.  Ye gods, Joe, what the hell is wrong with you?  Dimwit.   Anyhow, when Joe concluded his summit, he said with gasping vigor, “We’re gonna do this.”  Big flipping deal, Joe.  Do it to yourself, NOT to us.  Next, totally whacked White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki crowed that ‘Joe Biden will be the first president to create 1,000,000 jobs in his first 100 days.’  Oh, please, stop it, we are laughing as hard as we can already.  Enough, dimwit!  Moving on, Joe Biden told Turkish dictator Recep Tayyip Erdoğan that he is going to call ‘the Armenian massacre a GENOCIDE.’  As it was, the ARMENIAN GENOCIDE the Ottoman Turks carried out against the Christian Armenian minority in their country during World War I.  (Note- it would appear that via this action, Joe is pushing yet another dictatorial nation into the Chi-Com-Russian-Iranian-North Korean-Cuban-Venezuelan camp for good.  Good going there, Joe).
  82. 2021 Friday H: Energy News / Infrastructure News– Much to the horror of liberals, 73-percent of Americans recently polled believe that fossil fuels and natural gas will be with us for decades to come.  Yes, people are interested in renewable energy but until it becomes cost effective and dependable, no one wants this crap.[xxii]  Meanwhile, a new report says that a new proposed gasoline tax is meeting with resistance on BOTH sides of the political aisle.   After the GOP put forth a sensible and less costly infrastructure bill and the left slapped it down, Senator Johnson said it’s all ‘partisanship and not concern for the American people.’  Speaking of infrastructure, Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. Va., says that ‘Joe Biden should concentrate on CONVENTIONAL infrastructure’ and not this WOKE bulls**t.
  83. 2021 Friday I: 2020 Election News / Election Integrity– Early today, Democrats began suing the state of Arizona for permitting the election integrity audit to begin and continue.  Later in the day, a judge called a temporary halt to the procedures for some inexplicable reason, but then permitted it to proceed late in the day.  Next, President Donald J. Trump says that his team is advancing election integrity efforts across the country.  Elsewhere, New Hampshire passed SB 43 with which to carry out a forensic audit of the voting machines.  Citing the Windham Incident, in this one location, 1,143 ballots for Republicans were magically flipped over to Democrats.  These investigations are necessary.    
  84. 2021 Friday J: Foreign News / Overseas News–  Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, RINO, is slamming the inclusion of Iran- perhaps one of the greatest persecutors of women and girls- onto the U.N. Status of Women Commission.  What a load of feculent crap to put a scumbag nation such as Iran on a global body such as the one mentioned above.   Meanwhile, following Tony Perkins- of Family Research Council fame- calling for a boycott on the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics, the Chi-Coms now are trying to cancel him.  Permanently.    Elsewhere, Russian dissident Alexei Navalny is going to end his hunger strike.  Finally, Japan is declaring a state of emergency around Tokyo and three other areas due to surging numbers of COVID-19 cases.
  85. 2021 Friday K: Mass Shooting News / Law Enforcement News–  We learned that late last night in San  Diego, California, a mass shooting left one person dead and at least four injured.  We learned today that NBC once again rejiggered audio from the recent police shooting of Ma’ Khia Bryant who was in the act of stabbing another girl with an eight-inch blade.  As they did with George Zimmerman’s 911 call regarding Trayvon Martin, they edited and fabricated the police call so as to suit their narrative.  Folks, these lying scumbag networks should be fined and/or stripped of their broadcast licenses.   Meanwhile, Nicolas Cruz, the POS who shot up Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida back on February 14, 2018, in what we have dubbed the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre 2018- could go on trial for his life as early as this September.  (Note- we thought he had already copped to a deal).   Elsewhere, an alternate juror in the murder trial of Derek Chauvin says ‘yes, indeed, the mob intimidate us into finding the way we did.’  This verdict is going to get tossed.  Count on it.
  86. 2021 Friday L: Social Media And Stupid People News– After that big POS Los Angeles Lakers dimwit LeBron “Fecal Matter” James put up his most recent tweet about the cop who shot violent teen Ma’ Kia Bryant in Columbus, Ohio, a few days ago, President Donald J. Trump says the turd should ‘focus on his NBA career rather than presiding over the destruction of the National Basketball League.’  LeBron James clearly learned nothing in school and worse, he is down on his knees in front of Xi Jinping doing the nasty for him every day.  C***sucker.  Speaking of LeBron and social media, millions are asking WHY Twitter banned President Donald J. Trump for ‘inciting violence’ while all the while permitting King James to make threats of his own via the platform?  Why?
  87. 2021 Friday M: COVID-19 News / Updates– Today, 33 colleges said that in order to return to classes in the next semester, ALL students will have to show proof they have been vaccinated for the Xi Jinping Bat Virus.  In other Chi-Vi news, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton – with the help of Border Guru Stephen Miller- is suing the Biden administration over its hypocrisy of allowing in hundreds of thousands of illegals without testing them for the ‘VID while demanding states continue the bogus lockdowns the federal government imposes on them (if it can get away with doing it).  Moving on, the U.S. will now permit the use of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccinations to proceed.  However, this comes on the heels of the CDC investigation yet another woman’s death- someone in her fifties- following vaccination for the Chi-Vi.
  88. 2021 Friday N: U.S. Government News– Ahead of their planned pull out, U.S. military is packing up its military hardware in Afghanistan while leaving non-military supplies such as office equipment and appliances behind for the Taliban to put to effective use.   In other truly embarrassing news, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, a true milquetoast if one ever existed, is going to permit U.S. diplomatic missions abroad to fly the LGBTQIA+ flag at the same level with the U.S. flag around the world.  Gee whiz, paint another target on our backs, will you?  Meanwhile, the Biden White House is nominating a ‘conservationist’- Tracy Stone-Manning- to lead the Public Lands Bureau.  Another left-wing loser to be sure.  Finally, SpaceX Dragon capsule blasted off today carrying FOUR American astronauts to the International Space Station.
  89. 2021 Friday O: January 06, 2021, Storming The Capitol / Capitol Hill Riots / False Flag Operations News– It appears that Capitol Hill law enforcement has grown fatigued by lying Democrats’ narratives on what happened on that fateful day when Antifa and Black Lives Matter infiltrated the ranks of Trump supporters and then set in motion the largest FALSE FLAG operation seen in the history of our country.  They are pushing back on recent claims by unnamed Democrats that they showed ‘bias towards the Trump supporters.’  They say they did not.   Elsewhere, Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, is demanding a FULL ACCOUNTING of the death of Capitol Hill Police Officer Brian Sicknick, someone whom we just learned died from natural causes and did not- we repeat, did NOT- have his head bashed in with a fire extinguisher as liberal fake news media and Democrat politicians have long claimed.   Tell us the truth.
  90. 2021 Friday P: State News–  Florida’s Supreme Court stopped a bid with which to legalize marijuana in the Sunshine State.  Good.  We have enough stupid people already.   Elsewhere, in California, Caitlyn Jenner makes it official- she is running for the governor’s job in the recall of Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom and some like that overweight, wig-wearing Joy Behar on “The View” are upset.  She was so upset, she kept using the wrong pronouns when speaking of Ms. Jenner which in the liberal WOKE world is a major faux pas.  Yet, liberals routinely get away with NOT doing as they say everyone else should be doing.  What a farce.  Next, in New York City late last night/early this morning, did their best to deface a monument in Central Park, one built to commemorate the loss of 260 U.S. Navy sailors who were killed when the battleship USS Maine blew up in Havana Harbor, Cuba, on February 15, 1898, the main event that propelled the U.S. into war with Spain.  Police arrested some of the rioters, but we are sure they left the slammer within hours of their arrest.
  91. 2021 Friday Q: Political News I– A new study on elected officials who are the child of elected officials says that Congresswoman Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, and Senator Lisa Murkowski, RINO-AK, vote to the LEFT of their parents when they were in office.  Meanwhile, Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, said he ‘endorses Senators Murkowski and her RINO buddy, Susan Collins, of Maine.   Next, survivors of the Steve Scalise shooting criticize yesterday’s findings by the FBI that James Hodgkinson who shot up the Republican team preparing for the annual House baseball game back on June 14, 2017, did so because he wanted to die by suicide by cop.  This was the FBI finding we received yesterday and all we can say is that FBI Director Christopher Wray is full of fecal matter.
  92. 2021 Friday R: Political News II– Congressman Jason Smith, R-MO 8th congressional district, told Newsmax TV that New York state’s planned payments of $15,000 or more to illegal aliens is ‘unacceptable.’  It’s unacceptable when Americans need help, require salvation from all the Chi-Com Virus lockdowns and restrictions, and liberal left-wing government would rather care for INVADERS than for its own people.   Next, Kimberly Guilfoyle endorses former Missouri Governor Eric Greitens in his U.S. Senate bid.   Moving on, Governor Asa Hutchinson, RINO-AR, vetoed a bill limiting gun restrictions.  He vetoed a bill that LIMITS restrictions on guns in the Natural State, for Christ’s Sake.   The man has demonstrated he is little more than a RINO.
  93. 2021 Friday S: Political News III– Apparently, the President Trump 2020 Campaign left an unpaid view in Albuquerque, New Mexico, with a $211,000 bill, one they are sending to collections.  Sounds like bull crap but then- we know how it is.  Speaking of President Trump, he may be leaving Florida to spend the summer at his New Jersey golf club.   Speaking of Florida, the okays a bill banning abortions based on disability.  Meanwhile, we learn that the United States Postal Service- the USPS, for Christ’s Holy Sake!- is now doing dirty work for the Biden regime by spying on conservative Americans.  Man, they must have amassed a humongous dossier on the AICPENDBLOG.COM by now.  What the hell is the postal service doing behaving like the Gestapo?  Has Stamps.com hurt them this much that they must take on jobs that have NOTHING to do with their daytime jobs?
  94. 2021 Friday T: Miscellaneous News I– After a violent summer last year in \Minneapolis, Minnesota, BLACK-OWNED businesses in the city say the ‘city has abandoned them.’  These poor people watched Black Lives Matter and Antifa and all the hateful white punks (especially the banshees) screaming and rioting, looting, robbing, raping, and burning, and the damned Twin Cities need to do something to get them back on their feet!  What the hell does it take?  Where the hell is Patrice Cullors and all her millions of dollars?  Where is Joe Biden?  HELP these people.  Elsewhere, the Washington Post was slammed earlier today for their disgraceful ‘fact-checking’ on Senator Tim Scott’s ‘from the cotton fields to Congress’ statement awhile back.  Leftists are scumbags, what more can one say?  In other whack-job news, Climate Czar John F. Kerry says that the administration is exploring a BORDER ADJUSTMENT TAX that will slap additional taxes, i.e., tariffs, on nations with weaker climate policies.  Folks, it’s time to make up NICE with Russia or China and seek asylum.  These people are cray-cray.
  95. 2021 Friday U: California Lottery Results– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1653: 04, 28, 29,30, 60, and Mega 25.  Stay tuned for news on the winners… Out of 111,596 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR plus the Mega for a prize of $14,862 apiece.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 569,023 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 204,268 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 458 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.

Colonel Pierre Langlais confronts Colonel Christian De Castries and demands a reordering of the command structure.  Castries is somewhat subdued, his chief-of-staff Lt. Colonel Keller having been flown out due to suffering a nervous breakdown earlier in the day. The paratroopers are determined to mount a more forceful defense and to take it to the People’s Army as good as they are giving it to the French.

Trump.  
  61. 2017 Friday: Thanks to schmucks such as House Speaker Paul Ryan, the Trump administration and their GOP allies in the House of Representatives are forced to pull their plan to overturn Obamacare and to replace it with a better plan.   Meanwhile, the House Intelligence Committee goes to war with itself over the bogus Trump-Russia Collusion scam, the very same engineered by the Democrats.  Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, and ranking member, the locoweed Adam Schiff, DS-CA 28th congressional district, are butting heads over information coming out that shows that the Obama administration SPIED on the then-Trump campaign.
  62. 2018 Saturday: In the streets of Washington, D.C., and cities across the country, hundreds of thousands of teens and their supporters rallied against gun violence, spurred by a call to action from student survivors of the school shooting in Parkland, Fla., which left 17 people dead.  In other crazy news, likeminded European liberals- these in Paris- are also protesting against gun violence- in the U.S.  The French people are demanding Americans give up their guns- so says the losers of 1940, Dien Bien Phu in 1954, and Algeria from 1956 to 1962.  LOSERS with a capital “L.”
  63. 2019 Sunday: On this Sunday, Attorney-General Bill Barr put out a brief on the 22-month Robert S. Mueller III investigation into Donald Trump, Trump campaign officials, and Vladimir Putin’s Russia by saying that ‘Mueller’s team had found no evidence of collusion between now-President Trump, members of his campaign, his friends and family and Russia nor was there any sign of obstruction.’  In effect, this clears the president and those around him other than those convicted of process crimes during the investigation.  The Democrats could not handle the outcome and rushed to the microphones braying like dogs for ALL the evidence and promise to continue the witch hunt into Mr. Trump.  The investigation began- many believe- in late 2015 or early 2016 and involved members of the Hillary Clinton team, Barack Obama Justice Department and FBI officials, as well as foreign operatives hired by members of the Obama team to set up candidate- and then- President Trump.  
  64. 2020 Tuesday: Democrats continue stalling in the U.S. Senate by holding up Wuhan Virus relief legislation by trying to stuff in Green New Deal, Pro-Death, union, identity politics, election fraud such as ballot harvesting in ALL 50 states, and more.  Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell continues rebuffing them in the hope that honest and legitimate legislation can occur.  Meanwhile, the world around mid-day acknowledges approximately 414,277 cases of COVID-19, with 38,819 new cases over the past 24 hours.  Global deaths are 18,557 what with 2,146 in the previous 24 hours.  In the United States, there are 51,542 cases of the Kung Flu with 8,328 new cases over the past 24 hours.  There is a total of 674 deaths, up by 95 over the previous 24 hours.  The Dow Jones Industrial Average closes UP by 11.3% or up 2,112.98 points, closing at 20,764.91.  Bravo. 
  65. 2020 Tuesday A: Bill Rieflin- drummer with King Crimson from 2013-15 / 2017 until today- died in his hometown of Seattle, Washington, on this date at age 59.  Cancer was the cause.
  66. 2021 Wednesday: JOE BIDEN NEWS– in anticipation of tomorrow’s FIRST NEWS CONFERENCE with the press, Joe Biden announces (or his earpiece does) that 40 reporters will be allowed into the briefing.  Next, Newsmax says that the mocking of Joe Biden by our foreign adversaries shows that they neither respect him nor fear him which is not good for the United States.   However, (and we don’t believe this one iota), the American Research Group shows an approval rating for Joe Biden of 60-percent and 33-percent disapproval rate.   (Note- Rasmussen puts Joe’s numbers at 48-percent approve and 50-percent disapprove of him).  Moving on, Joe Biden plans to mark Equal Pay Day as women are harder hit by COVID-19 than are their male counterparts.  Good for you, Joe, pandering like always.  Speaking of old Joe, earlier today he announced that “Kooky Kamala” Harris is now in charge of ‘solving the border crisis.’  (Note- continue building the wall and deport them all and that will help solve the ‘self-inflicted problem’ just as cutting off ALL government aid to illegals will.  Come on Methuselah, do your flipping job!).[vii]   Finally, when reporters asked Old Joe what he thought about North Korea’s recent missile tests, he said, ‘not much has changed.’
  67. 2021 Wednesday A: GOP NEWS– Utah Governor Spencer J. Cox, GOP, signed a measure that will put filters on porn sites within the state.  Excellent.  Meanwhile, GOP-lead states are fighting the good fight against Joe Biden’s increasingly insane policies, wish lists of liberal loony tunes spending and deprivation of the American people’s rights.  Elsewhere, Senator Chuck Grassley, R-IA, is pushing the Justice Department to continue the probe into perjury charges against the crackpot witnesses the Democrats trotted out to smear now-Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh.  Christine Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramirez, and Julie Swetnick should all be doing time in federal prisons for the bulls**t they pulled at his confirmation hearings back in 2018.  Get them, Chuck!  Finally, President Donald J. Trump is supporting Max Miller in his bid to unseat RINO Congressman Anthony Gonzalez in Ohio’s 16th congressional district.  Gonzalez voted to impeach President Trump if you recall.
  68. 2021 Wednesday B: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I–  The person who used to be known as Prince Harry, aka Mr. Meghan Markle, is taking a no-show gig as the ‘chief impact officer’ at a Silicon Valley startup, Betterup, that will help emotionally challenged individuals- like his wife and boss- overcome their issues.  Bravo, Harry, bravo.  Sort of like Hunter Biden working at Burisma.   Meanwhile, Senator Bernie Sanders says that he is ‘uncomfortable’ with the permanent ban placed on President Donald J. Trump by Twitter.  However, President Trump says he has ‘no plans to return to Twitter,’ seeing as how he is in the midst of creating his own untouchable social media platform.   Next, the New York Justice Department says the impeachment probe into Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo could continue for months.  So, charge him with the homicides of 15,000-20,000 people and get him out of office.  NOW.
  69. 2021 Wednesday C: FOREIGN/OVERSEAS NEWS–  Vladimir Putin’s chef- businessman Yevgeny Prigozhin- has written to the Federal Bureau of Investigation demanding he be removed from a most-wanted list.  The FBI put a bounty of $250,000 atop his head last month for his apprehension and extradition to the United States over bogus charges he somehow meddled in the 2016 Presidential Election on behalf of then-candidate Donald J. Trump.  He says the FBI must stop offering the reward as it violates several principles under human rights laws.  That’s Joe Biden for you, looking for fall guys he can blame for his own shortcomings such as Hunter Biden being in the hip pockets of both the Ukraine and China.  Meanwhile, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declares victory in the recent elections, but the majority is still unclear.   Elsewhere, a massive container ship in the Suez Canal has run aground due to high winds and is blocking passage to other ships.
  70. 2021 Wednesday D: SECOND AMENDMENT/GUNS NEWS– Representative Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district, says the Dems are ‘playing politics with our lives’ over their renewed drive to strip the American people of their guns.  (Note- we’d like to see them try.  First, there are going to be SO-O-O MANY gun thefts in this country, the cops will be tied up seeking them while secondly, it’s like what former NRA boss Charlton Heston used to say: ‘you can have my guns when you pry them out of my cold dead fingers.  Joe- NO one is going to surrender their guns, NO one.  Come and get them.  Chef Alvin).  Still, after the POS Syrian Muslim refugee Ahmad Al-Aliwi Alissa[viii] killed 10 WHITE people at the King Soopers Grocery Store in Boulder, Colorado, earlier this week, the Dems began to go bat-crap-crazy in pushing their gun-grabbing bills.   Joe Biden says he doesn’t have to ‘wait for Congress’ to begin stripping guns.  Go for it, Joe.
  71. 2021 Wednesday E: SECOND AMENDMENT/GUN NEWS II– Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer[ix] swears on his mother’s soul that the two firearms bills sent to him from the House of Representatives will receive swift attention.  “Kooky Kamala” Harris is urging swift hearing and passage of these gun-grabbing bills.  Interesting note- John Bachman of Newsmax says that the ‘Democrats are hypocrites.  They claim to hate guns, yet they spread guns all over the world’ selling them to thugs, criminals, terrorists, murderers, and other human trash.  He reminded his viewers of the Obama era “Fast and Furious” program that put military grade weapons into the hands of Mexican narcoterrorists.  
  72. 2021 Wednesday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– ‘The (Communist) Squad in Congress now claims that NOT supporting statehood for Washington, D.C., is RACIST.  The federal district was NEVER intended to be a state, girls, it was pulled together from several states so that NO single state would claim rights to sole ownership of the federal government.  No, just because lots of black folks live there does not make it ‘racist.’  Everyone living in the District of Columbia knows the score.  Shut the f**k up.  Next, Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell says that H.R. 1 is a bald political power grab.  Mitch- you should have supported President Donald J. Trump when you had the opportunity.  Now, shut the hell up.  Finally, the Wisconsin State Assembly authorizes an investigation into election fraud in the 2020 Presidential Election.
  73. 2021 Wednesday G: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– “Coincidence of the Day”- last week, Dr. Moncef Slaoui said that ‘President Donald J. Trump bears 90-percent of getting the COVID-19 vaccine programs underway what with Operation Warp Speed and Joe Biden just 10-percent.  Today, GlaxoSmithKline terminated Dr. Slaoui for purported sexual harassment allegations against him.  Wow.  Is this not amazing?  Cancel Culture strikes yet again.  Defend Trump and you lose your job.  Well, we defend Trump- WTF are YOU going to do to US?   Next, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says AstraZeneca soon to release an updated report on its coronavirus vaccines.   Meanwhile, Caribbean nations are begging the Biden administration NOT to be stingy with the coronavirus vaccines, to please, remember the countries on the U.S.’ third border.  (Note- when these countries do something about the horrendous foodborne illness visitors typically acquire upon eating their first meals there, we will send you vaccine.  Otherwise, STFU).  Finally, five years after his untimely death, famed rock star Prince’s ashes will go on public display.
  74. 2021 Wednesday H: ODDBALL AND HUMOROUS NEWS OF THE DAY– By a final vote of 52-48 (with RINO Senators Lisa Murkowski, RINO-AK, and Susan Collins, RINO-ME, confirmed the nomination of tranny (woof!) former Pennsylvania Health Secretary Rachel Levine to become the next assistant secretary of health.  Okie dokie.  Aren’t we proud as a nation!  Next, a chick with a dick,[x] Kataluna Enriquez has been crowned Miss Silver State USA, one step away from competing in the Miss Nevada USA pageant.  In yet another slap to the faces of women and girls, the tranny beat out numerous biological females to become the first beauty pageant winner with a dong swinging down under.  Folks, what the hell is going on?  Almost makes one wish the Chinese would take the country over.  Oh, speaking about ‘affronts’ to women, “Kooky Kamala” Harris and former President William Jefferson “Bill” Clinton are teaming up on a program with which to empower women.  Does anyone see the irony in this? [xi] (They are already receiving massive blowback for this bulls**t symposium).
  75. 2021 Wednesday I: U.S. BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE– Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, swears to ‘shut the Senate down’ if the Biden administration denies him access to the southern border.  Senator Marsha Blackburn was visiting the border today and she said, ‘what a mess.’  Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador says that ‘Joe Biden bears full responsibility for the ongoing border catastrophe.’  Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says that ‘Joe Biden’s rhetoric and his first day actions are responsible for the border catastrophe.’   Speaking of this crisis, this holocaust, Joe Biden has yet to name a nominee to head the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol.   Meanwhile, Congressman Henry Cuellar, D-TX 28th congressional district, says that the ‘migrants must be made known as to what awaits them on this side of the border.’  The border states must find a way with which they can finish the wall on their territory if they cannot do it on federal land.  Steve Bannon, where the hell are YOU and YOUR charity to fund border wall construction?
  76. 2021 Wednesday J: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 124,378,693 confirmed cases, +453,805, 2,736,980  confirmed deaths, +9,340, and 70,573,246 confirmed recoveries, +252,735.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,161,747 confirmed cases, up 57,678 from yesterday’s reporting, 549,411 confirmed deaths, UP 798, and 117,371,050 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them. 
  77. 2021 Wednesday K: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 220,944 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another three-and-a-half-weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  
  78. 2021 Wednesday L: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,648,021 confirmed cases, 57,909 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,950 confirmed cases, 454 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 359,290 confirmed cases, 5,249 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- the commonwealth of the American Samoa: currently, they have 3 confirmed cases, 0 confirmed deaths, and 3 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 829,689 confirmed cases, 6,122 confirmed deaths, and 808,869 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Pakistan, home of a large chapter of the Taliban: 637,042 cases of the virus, 13,965 confirmed deaths and 586,228 confirmed recoveries.  
  79. 2021 Wednesday M: STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 32,420.06, DOWN 3.09 points (-0.01%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,961.89, DOWN 265.81 points (-2.01%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,889.14, DOWN 21.38 points (-0.55%).  The price of GOLD is $1,733.10 per troy oz., -0.10 (-0.01%) while the price of SILVER is $25.12 per troy ounce, -0.12 (-0.46%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,172.20 per troy oz, -8.00 (-0.68%) while the price of COPPER is $4.03 per pound, -0.04 (-0.92%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,640.10 per troy oz, +22.80 (+0.87%). The price of RHODIUM is $29,800.00 per troy oz., +400.00 (+1.36%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $60.70 per barrel, -0.48 (-0.78%)  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.52 Chinese yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.90.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000019.   In Barbadian dollar, one greenback equals 2.00. 
  80. 2021 Wednesday N: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE THREE STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.882 per gallon, $3.622 in Hawaii, and $3.324 in Washington state.    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,089,823,477,532 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.  Cloward and Piven running amok.  The country is going to crumble into nothingness thanks to the Democrats and their trillion-dollar bills.  Donald Trump- time for you to return to office.
  81. 2021 Wednesday O: Stay tuned for tonight’s Super Lotto and Powerball drawings.  First, here are the results for the Super Lotto Drawing #3545 with a pot of $31 million on the line: 10, 11, 13, 32, 38, and Mega 17.  Out of 111,151 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $19,815 apiece. Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #831 with a $220 million pot on the line: 04, 09, 17, 27, 38, and Power 18.   Out of 95,606 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $25,606. 
  82. 2021 Wednesday P: END OF THE NIGHT NEWS I– Tesla now says that its customers can buy their electric vehicles with Bitcoin.  Having bought $1.5 billion in Bitcoin several months back, any cars bought with Bitcoin will remain in their Bitcoin account- they are not going to convert it into dollars.  Next, the Joint Chiefs of Staff spokesperson said that yes, indeed, North Korea did fire at least one projectile into the East China Sea.  That’s Kim for you- NO respect for Joe Biden.  Meanwhile, as 14 states sue the Biden administration for its almost immediate crackdown on all energy projects on federal lands, the U.S. Department of the Interior announces that it’s going to review all existing and applications for fossil fuel drilling on federal lands.  With a Norwegian-Native American in charge, Debra Haaland, you know there won’t be any new drilling and many existing oil and natural gas leases will be shut down.  Windmills and solar farms.  
  83. 2021 Wednesday Q: END OF THE NIGHT NEWS II– Virginia Governor Ralph “Black Face” Northam signs a bill that will end capital punishment in the state.  Since its inception as a British colony, there have been 1,400 executions.  Since the U.S. Supreme Court reinstated the death penalty in 1976, there have been 113 executions which ranks the Old Dominion State second only to the Lone Star State in the number of executions carried out.  Still, Governor “Black Face” says the death penalty should be available for especially heinous crimes but throughout history, the death penalty has fallen mostly on minorities, the mentally ill, and the poor.  Elsewhere, Intel is going to build two chip-manufacturing plants in Arizona, so says CEO Pat Gelsinger.  Not only will it produce chips for its own purposes, but it will also serve as a ‘foundry,’ which means it will build microchips for other companies.  The company will qualify for about $90 million in tax credits when construction is completed, and it will also provide at least 3,000 high-paying jobs.  Even better, it will become an alternative source for chip manufacturing so if Asia craps out or withholds chips from Western nations, problem solved.  
  84. 2021 Wednesday R: END OF THE NIGHT NEWS III– U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken visited NATO headquarters in Brussels, Belgium, today and informed our allies that ‘America was back’ and that we would not put our ‘allies in a position of ‘us or them,’ meaning- we guess- that if the Germans want to buy natural gas from the Russians, the nation against whom the victorious Western allies created the North Atlantic Treaty Organization to defend against- then so be it.  It is what it is.  Meanwhile, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg invited the Russians to return to having an observatory role in the organization.  Secretary Blinken wants the organization to remain strong against both Russian and Chinese hegemony and that if the Chi-Coms cause problems for one country, they cause them for all countries within the group.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, they blasted the U.S. today for everything from being a racist nation to its out-of-control spending.  Ouch.
  85. 2022 Thursday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  72. 2017 Wednesday: In Kabul, Afghanistan, members of the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam carry out two suicide bombings that kill at least 18 people and wound another 40.  What the hell is wrong with these people?  Elsewhere, Latin singer-entertainer-boob-shaker Charo will appear on Season 24 of “Dancing with the Stars.”  Groovy.   
  73. 2018 Thursday: Sounding like Soviet thug-dictators of old, Vladimir Putin- in his annual state of the country address- announces that Russia has an ‘invincible” intercontinental ballistic missile.  Meanwhile, White House communications specialist Hope Hicks announces her resignation.  Finally, President Donald J. Trump stirs up fears of a trade war with Communist China when he announces tariffs of 25% on steel and 10% on aluminum imports.  Directed at China, it also affects some of the country’s other trading partners.  Two years later, the tariffs worked.
  74. 2019 Friday: Famed Panamanian boxer Eusebio Pedroza- WBA featherweight champion 1978-1985- dies of pancreatic carcinoma at age 62.  Meanwhile, Jeff Bezos and Amazon announce that it plans on expanding into brick-and-mortar grocery stores across the United States in another bid to drive lower-level competitors out business.  (Wait until a year later when the Chi-Com virus would force everyone to shop online for their groceries).
  75. 2020 Sunday: Following the results of the Democratic Party’s Primary results from South Carolina the previous day, Mayor Pete Buttigieg throws in the towel, whining he cannot see a way forward.  Son, you NEVER had a way forward, minorities are not going to vote for you.  Stay in South Bend, Indiana, and make it great again.  Meanwhile, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Massachusetts, announces that ‘no matter what, she is going to fight all the way to the convention in the summertime.’  We have heard other politicians say stuff like this before; once the money dries up, you are as good as gone but maybe if you change that nasty black leotard, you wear every flipping day, maybe people will look at you anew.   Just saying.[vii]
  76. 2021 Monday: Day 41 of the Biden Regime- things continue going from BAD to WORSE under this senile old coot and his fellow mental nursing home liberals and their younger loony tunes caretakers.  The U.S. Department of Labor announces that 10-percent- or more- of the China Virus pandemic claims for the Paycheck Protection Program are fraudulent.  We already know this to be true what with rappers talking about getting checks as being easier than peddling dope to grade school kids.  Folks, illegal aliens, prisoners, and hobos and tramps are all reaping COVID-19 Chi-Com virus aid while the American people continue their long vigil for the promised relief coming their way. 
  77. 2021 Monday A: Iran rejects any chance of U.S.-Iran direct talks on its nuclear program.  Folks, there is but one cure for Iran: hit them with neutron bombs and cleanse the earth of these foul mullahs. 
  78. 2021 Monday B: New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo continues slumping due to the amazing hubris the POS presented the world by winning an Emmy and authoring a novel on how great a leader he was during the Wuhan Virus Crisis as his #MeToo problems continue dragging him down.  After suggesting he might appoint a retired federal judge to look into all the claims of sexual harassment and abuse, he is backtracking away on that one as new video comes to light of him encouraging a female reporter from 12 Westchester, Beth Cefalu, to engulf a WHOLE sausage (from a sandwich) at the 2016 New York State Fair.  As if this isn’t bad enough, the so-called ‘Love Gov,’ a moniker given to him by equally sick baby brother Chris who likes standing naked outside his wife’s online yoga class for all the world to see, his daughter Michaela, was sitting beside him.  Yes, indeed, the “Love Gov” is being hammered from ALL sides, including by House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi.  The fading speaker says the claims against Cuomo are ‘credible’ so we can see his fellow Dems beginning to throw him under the bus now.[viii]
  79. 2021 Monday C:   Meanwhile, as Democrats realize the push for a $15 per hour minimum wage is a no-go, they have decided to shelve a tax penalty for employers fighting the increase.  Look, if everyone on the bottom end receives a $15 per hour minimum wage, skilled employees will require more money and everything we buy will immediately go up in price thus causing rapid inflation.  Add to that the fact the Dems want to flood the country with a vast number of illegal aliens and American workers will find themselves in the crapper as they were during the eight miserable years of Obama-Biden. 
  80. 2021 Monday D: The ‘Biden administration’ readies a WIDER economic relief package after the Chinese Virus relief plan goes into effect so it’s clear the Dems continue filling these pools of American taxpayers’ wealth so they can fund all their sugary additions to the ‘relief bill,’ money they will be able to tap into in the same way the Obama-Biden team was able to look after union workers while screwing nonunion workers during their eight years in office.   However, the U.S. Senate appears to be weighing the COVID-19 Relief Bill to see how much pork they might be able to cut from it.  
  81. 2021 Monday E: Donald J. Trump reiterated yesterday during the final speech at CPAC how he sought 10,000 National Guard troops to protect Washington, D.C. in the days around January 6, 2021, just as said it’s time to break up the BIG TECH monopolies. 
  82. 2021 Monday F: In other news, former Border czar Chad Wolf calls out the ‘Biden administration’s’ self-imposed head wound over OPEN BORDERS what with the ILLEGAL ALIEN INVASION, labeling them as ‘absurd’ and calling the flood of humanity seeking to force their way into the United States as a ‘crisis.’   Others say that after Joe Biden removed all controls along the southern border ‘an alien invasion is underway.’  We say minefields, folks, we say, ‘seed the Rio Grande River with baby alligators brought in from Louisiana, Florida, and Mississippi.  We say electrified fence, we say do whatever must be done to protect our border and to safeguard the American people. 
  83. 2021 Monday G: In other news, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer is facing her own Andrew “Killer” Cuomo problem, one in which, she sent Wuhan Flu-infected patients into nursing homes where they murdered vulnerable populations.  There is BUT one reason as to WHY someone would commit acts as egregious as these which is to ELIMINATE people who cost the state a fair share of their Medicaid money.[ix]  We can understand that these people can be a problem for governors who want to social engineer across their states by redistributing the wealth our aged, our infirm, and our dying require to keep them alive.  Democrat governors across the country have no problem doing whatever is required to rid themselves of these people short of putting pillows over their faces and smothering them to death.  Sending people with an infectious disease in with them?  That’s NO problem, folks!   
  84. 2021 Monday H: The Pennsylvania GOP is launching its own investigation into its Democrat Governor Tom Wolff over his far too many Yellow Fever 2020 deaths.  Like many Democrats in BLUE STATES, these heartless politicians try to eradicate invalids within their states, so they then redirect money spent on them to bogus programs, many of which enable them to find ways to receive kickbacks.  In other Chi-Com Virus news, the CDC says the Johnson & Johnson Kung Flu vaccine is almost ready to begin shipping around the country (which means the Third World is going to receive vaccinations before the American people do, thanks to ‘Senile Joe’ in the White House. 
  85. 2021 Monday I: Apparently, Saturday Night Live finds itself in more hot water with yet more anti-Semitic jokes.  WTF is wrong with these people?   Don’t they have Jews running the show there?  Where does all this anti-Semitism begin?  In other extremely ignorant news, the Virginia schools system forbids students to read Dr. Seuss’ books because they are somehow RACIST.  Folks, let’s cancel the Cancel Culture NOW.  NOW!  IF you pay no attention to social media, cancel culture cannot cancel you so let’s fight back against these putzes.    What would the LEFT like school kids to read?  Mao Zedong’s Little Red Book?  The Communist Manifesto?  Mein Kampf?  Don’t laugh, folks, all of these books are LEFT-WING philosophies.  Yes, National Socialism says it all, the keyword being ‘socialism.’  Perhaps if drag queens read these books to grade schoolers, it’s A-Okay.    
  86. 2021 Monday K: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 114,350,611 confirmed cases, +368,282, 2,536,865, confirmed deaths, +7,917, and 64,530,988 confirmed recoveries, +159,244.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 28,904,197 confirmed cases, up 30,809 from yesterday’s reporting, 519,044 confirmed deaths, UP 855, and 16,789,391 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 189,550 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, STOP SENDING U.S. vaccines overseas, use them here at home you reprobate scumbag.  NOT OUR PRESIDENT!
  87. 2021 Monday L: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,569,588 confirmed cases, 52,293 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,000 confirmed cases, 439 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries- NOTE: Hawaii has not updated their stats in nearly a week.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 342,696 confirmed cases, 5,024 confirmed deaths (same as yesterday), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Arkansas: currently, they have 322,415 confirmed cases, 5,377 confirmed deaths, and 312,758 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 775,807 confirmed cases, 5,752 confirmed deaths, and 733,184 confirmed recoveries.
  88. 2021 Monday M:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,535.51, UP 603.14 points (+1.95%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,588.83, UP 396.48 points (+3.01%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,901.82, UP 90.67 points (+2.38%).  The price of GOLD is $1,723.10 per troy oz., +0.10 (+0.01%) while the price of SILVER is $26.64 per troy ounce, -0.04 (-0.14%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,190.90 per troy oz, -0.40 (-0.03%) while the price of COPPER is $4.10 per pound, -0.01 (-0.30%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,358.50 per troy oz, +37.50 (+1.62%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $60.20 per barrel, -0.44 (-0.73%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.65.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000020.   In Taiwanese dollars, one greenback equals 27.73.  
  89. 2021 Monday N: Instead of ordering California teachers to get their asses back in class or else, California has a $6.6 billion plan with which to reopen schools.  You know, if the schools don’t open until next year, the problems teachers are going to face in schools upon their return is going to be worse than the current disciplinarian problems they faced prior to the Beijing Bat Bug Virus.   Meanwhile, Texas Attorney General is suing their electric and natural gas provider over the sky-high energy costs variable customers had during the recent freak winter storm that hit more than a week ago.  What happened in Texas is reason enough to tell ALL Democratic-Socialist true believers in the Green New Deal to go f**k themselves.
  90. 2021 Monday O:  Energy provider Brazos Electric Cooperative in Texas files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy, listing last month’s destabilizing storm that hammered the Lone Star State between February 13 and 19’ as its reasons for doing so.  People on variable rates plans found themselves facing bills of five figures.  We are unclear as to how this was possible in a state sans any power and yet it was.  This is akin to the subprime mortgage that propelled Barack Hussein Obama, an unknown senator from a notoriously crooked state, into the White House in 2008.   The state is still awaiting help from the Biden administration.  Gee, ‘President Biden’ may have forgotten the moment he promised it.
  91. 2021 Monday P: In the United States, 47 million people- 14-percent of the population- has received at least one injection of the China Virus vaccine, either Moderna or Biontech, and with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine approved for immediate use, we hope millions more will be able to receive this vaccine instead of the Third World.
  92. 2021 Monday Q: Members of the European Union (or former)- France, Germany, and Great Britain- circulate a resolution to slam Iran for speeding up its nuclear ambitions.  The parties are circulating this draft ahead of the upcoming meeting of the IAEA.  Of course, everyone blames President Trump for withdrawing from the 2015 agreement in 2018.   Here’s the thing- Iran has been working on nuclear weapons and delivery systems from the very beginning so no one should be surprised by them NOT following the agreement.
  93. 2021 Monday R: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accuses Iran of attacking an Israeli-owned ship in the Gulf of Oman last week.  The vessel suffered a mysterious explosion in the gulf and had to put into a nearby port so that the blast could undergo investigation and the ship repaired.  Meanwhile, the United Arab Emirates first ambassador to Israel, Mohamed Al Khaja arrived in Jerusalem ahead of a meeting with President  Reuven Rivlin.  Both nations are part of the Abraham Accords in which Arab states have made peace with Israel and have opened trade and other economic ties with one another.   It also is an alliance against the Iranians.
  94. 2021 Monday S: ‘President Joe Biden’ held his second virtual meeting with another world leader, this one being Mexican President Manuel Lopez Obrador.  Hours earlier Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announced Michelle Brane of Women’s Refugee Commission will head the new family reunification commission, which has reunited 115 of 611 illegal alien families broken up at the border.  The secretary said, “There’s no crisis at the border” even though the Biden administration is scrambling to find holding pens for the tens of thousands of illegal aliens swamping the country.
  95. 2021 Monday T: Iraqi security forces break up street protests in Baghdad’s Tahrir Square.  People are angry over events of last week in the southern city of Nasiriya where Iraqi authorities lit up protesters there.  People are unhappy with the government and the nation’s three rival groups- Shiites, Sunnis, and Kurds- are unhappy with one another especially as the Iranians continue penetrating the country so they can drive out Western interests and put theirs into place in Baghdad.
  96. 2021 Monday U: The Senate Judiciary Committee advances Judge Merrick Garland with a bi-partisan vote of 15-7 to send this wimpy POS to the Senate floor for a full vote to be Joe Biden’s attorney general.   Four Republicans joined with the Democrats in voting him through while seven voted NO.  Here are the four who voted with the Democrats: Sen. Chuck Grassley, Iowa, Lindsey Graham, South Carolina, Thom Tillis, North Carolina, and John Cornyn, Texas.  Here are the seven who voted against Joe Biden’s AG pick: Little Ben Sasse, Nebraska, Mike Lee, Utah, Josh Hawley, Missouri, Tom Cotton, Arkansas, John Kennedy, Louisiana, Marsha Blackburn, Tennessee, and Ted Cruz, Texas.   We believe the Republicans who voted FOR Judge Garland have a misguided sense of guilt they didn’t demand his Supreme Court nomination to have a hearing back in 2016 when Associate Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia died.
  97. 2022 Tuesday: Stay tuned…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

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…

ENDNOTES:

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

[ii] We promoted the music of the Who and of its individual band members beginning on Monday, 03-August-2015 through Sunday, 29-November-2015.  We hope you will seek out the music of this veteran British band as well as of Pete Townsend, John Entwistle, Keith Moon, and Roger Daltrey.  We know you will enjoy them.

[iii] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.    “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” appeared on Tuesday, 22-November-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[iv] We promoted the music of the Doors, the famed Los Angeles, California, hard rocking psychedelic band beginning on Saturday, 18-February-2012 through 02-April-2012.  We hope you will seek this legendary band out and consider adding it to your ever-growing collection.

[v] We look forward to sharing the music of Pink Floyd- as well as the band’s members- sometime within the next 5-6 years.

[vi] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.    “Dark Horse” appeared on Tuesday, 27-December-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering of music by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[vii] Editor’s comments, not the blog’s.

[viii][viii] The problem Cuomo has is that the dimwit is not as smart as that dingbat governor in Virginia, Governor Ralph Northam, a man who never saw a baby whose brains he did not want to suck out its head at a Baby Chop Shop.  Governor Northam has a problem with dressing up in BLACKFACE and almost was driven from office when photos in his college yearbook, no less, surfaced.  They couldn’t drive Northam from office because his lieutenant governor is a multiple rapist while his third in line- the state’s attorney general also liked dressing up in blackface.  The people of Virginia would have had to remove far too many politicians before they could find someone who is neither a rapist nor a fan of dressing in blackface or in KKK outfits.  Cuomo stands alone and we predict that the longer he hangs on, the worse it will be for him.

[ix] DailyMail.com is the source for this story: “Video Shows Gov. Cuomo urging a Female Reporter to Eat a Whole Sausage.”  Let’s see YOU swallow that sausage, you sick f**k or better yet, keister it.

THE ELECTION IS COMING…

53. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 2022

2021 Monday: Day 34 of the BIDEN REGIME. Joe Biden extends mortgage relief protections through June harming landlords and mortgage companies. The question is, when things return to ‘normal,’ will the people being aided by the government be able to catch their rents/mortgages up? Next, Joe Biden eliminates President Donald J. Trump’s citizenship test for illegal fence-jumpers and river-swimmers.

  76. 2021 Monday: Day 34 of the BIDEN REGIME.  Joe Biden extends mortgage relief protections through June harming landlords and mortgage companies.  The question is, when things return to ‘normal,’ will the people being aided by the government be able to catch their rents/mortgages up?   Next, Joe Biden eliminates President Donald J. Trump’s citizenship test for illegal fence-jumpers and river-swimmers.  Speaking of illegal aliens, ICE reports that illegal aliens are getting their Chi-Vi vaccines ahead of U.S. citizens.  Representative Debbie Lesko, R-AZ, is upset about this, saying that seniors call her office every day to discover when they will be able to receive their vaccines.  Nope, we must immunize illegal aliens and felons first.  Another Arizona lawmaker, Congressman Andy Biggs, Republican, says there is ‘an explosion of unaccompanied illegal alien minors at the border.’  We encourage laying in of minefields. 
  77. 2021 Monday A: As Joe Biden nominee confirmations continue, Senator Susan Collins, RINO-Maine, says she WON’T vote to confirm OMB nominee Neera Tanden for hateful attacks on Republicans.  Meanwhile, Judge Merrick Garland, Joe Biden’s nominee for attorney-general is shagging questions today in the U.S. Senate.  He claims that ‘politics won’t influence or affect criminal probes into scumbags such as Hunter Biden.’  We shall see.   Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, slams Judge Garland for not labeling James Comey as a ‘TERRIBLE’ FBI director.  Next, the White House calls for a ‘moment of silence’ (what a load of festering fecal matter) over hitting the dubious benchmark of more than half-a-million deaths.  (Please see our ‘VID statistics later today so you can see just how many people have succumbed to the Wuhan Virus Crisis while Joe Biden’s been in the White House.  It’s a whole lot, folks…).  Finally, New Jersey’s governor signs a bill establishing the framework for legal pakalolo in his state.
  78. 2021 Monday B: Chi-Com news- Researchers conclude that the Chi-Coms copied NSA spyware code which should surprise NO one.  In other SHOCKING NEWS, the infamous Wuhan Institute of Virology is going to continue receiving U.S. taxpayers’ dollars for continued research into bat viruses and other evil stuff.  WHY are we funding the Chi-Com research, ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden, especially when they are the ones who caused the global pandemic, whether through ineptitude or on purpose?  What’s more, we should be doing our own biowarfare research, not giving the Chi-Coms our money.  Someone, please impeach and remove Joe Biden NOW.  In other Chi-Com-related news, Representative Bill Johnson says, ‘Joe Biden’s energy policies show weakness on the Chi-Coms human rights abuses.’  After all, ‘Pro-China Joe’ shut the Keystone XL pipeline down on Day No. 1 so that oil will be flowing west from Canada’s coast to mainland China.  Finally, the Chi-Coms are urging their stooge in the White House to lift all trade sanctions and tariffs and to show Beijing some ‘goodwill.’  F**k Beijing.
  79. 2021 Monday C: The Roberts Supreme Court continues to show it’s in league with the Washington, D.C. swamp when Roberts says, ‘it’s okay for New York prosecutors to get their grubby hands-on Donald J. Trump’s tax records as far back as 2011.  We also hear that Associate Justice Clarence Thomas blasted Roberts and other liberal justices for their unwillingness to hear cases related to the theft of the 2020 Presidential Election.   SCOTUS could also hear cases on various states’ new laws restricting abortion rights within their borders.  We know how John Roberts will rule now don’t we? 
  80. 2021 Monday D: Corrupt (allegedly) Dominion Voting Systems is suing My Pillow’s Mike Lindell for his blowing the lid off the can regarding Dominion’s and associated company, Smartmatic’s hand in STEALING the 2020 Presidential Election as well as various other elections around the country.   Elsewhere, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, she’s whose face droops down on one side, is funneling $300,000 to help gerrymandering efforts after condemning Republicans for gerrymandering districts in Red States.  Say it ain’t so, Nancy!
  81. 2021 Monday E: The Harris administration, uh, the ‘Biden administration’ is downplaying the rhetoric on Iran, hoping the Iranians will return to the flawed JCPOA- the Iran nuclear ‘deal.’  Speaking of the Iranians, the head of the IAEA says Iran is ‘going to limit access to its nuclear programs.’  Hmmm, why would this be?  Speaking of Iran, eight rockets were fired at the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad’s Green Zone today.   Also speaking of Iran, U.S. families of detained Americans in that hellish, pro-jihad country are begging the ‘Biden administration’ to do something to get their family members home.  Come on, Joe, do something about getting these people repatriated to the U.S.
  82. 2021 Monday F: An NBC poll shows- much to their horror- that blue collar workers of all colors flocked to President Donald J. Trump.  Speaking of President Trump, when he gives the keynote address at CPAC this week, with a ‘show of force,’ he’s going to place his grip onto the GOP.  The Grand Old Party is Trump’s party, and we look forward to seeing “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell’s RINO picks fall in one election after another.  McConnell must be impeached and removed from office.   In other news, a high school senior in New York City is battling the Di Blasio Regime over its closure of Trump Corporation-operated ice-skating rinks.  In other news, Prime Minister Boris Johnson, aka “BoJo,” says that all UK schools should be reopened by March 8.  Excellent.  IF only U.S. educators would follow suit.
  83. 2021 Monday G: The United States Marine Corps is going to substitute ‘board games’ for its upcoming March military drills so as to create ‘smart infantry.’  Sounds like a load of bull crap to us, a stinking load of bull crap.  Meanwhile, 170 of 254 counties in Texas are struggling with winter-related storms and power outages- fresh water is difficult by which to come.  Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer blames Texas for what’s happened to it saying they chose to go alone on energy and now they must sleep in the bed they made.’  Good, Chuck, good.  What a POS.  In other news, the family of slain Nation of Islam leader Malcolm X (allegedly, the Reverend Louis Farrakhan is the man who ordered the hit) wants the case reopened so the law can find and punish his murderers.  Find Reverend Louie and ask HIM.   Elsewhere, United Airlines is pulling 24 of it Boeing 777 airliners out of use to double check the engines.   Finally, Joe Biden says smaller firms will have exclusive PPP access over the next two weeks.
  84. 2021 Monday H: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 111,434,139 confirmed cases, +165,977, 2,467,481 confirmed deaths, +3,462, and 62,896,305 confirmed recoveries, +149,843.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 28,409,269 confirmed cases, up 84,306 from yesterday’s reporting, 504,012 confirmed deaths, UP 1,519, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- no update in more than four weeks- what’s up with that? NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 174,411 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S. which means, you have more than half of what Trump had from the beginning of the outbreak which means you are a failure like Andrew “Killer” Cuomo.  Joe, YOU claimed you had a plan to defeat the communist virus, what the hell are YOU going to do about it- sit on your ass and blame everything on Donald Trump.
  85. 2021 Monday I: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,531,979 confirmed cases, 49,380 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,778 confirmed cases, 431 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 336,950 confirmed cases, 4,886 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. real estate- Louisiana: currently, they have 426,644 confirmed cases, 9,477 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 750,043 confirmed cases, 5,577 confirmed deaths, and 704,018 confirmed recoveries.   
  86. 2021 Monday J:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,521.69, UP 27.37 points (+0.087%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,533.05, DOWN 341.42 points (-2.46%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,876.50, DOWN 30.21 points (-0.77%).  The price of GOLD is $1,809.10 per troy oz., +0.70 (+0.04%) while the price of SILVER is $28.21 per troy ounce, +0.13 (+0.45%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,283.10 per troy oz, +0.80 (+0.06%) while the price of COPPER is $4.15 per pound, +0.01 (+0.17%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,402.90 per troy oz, +23.10 (+0.97%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $62.19 per barrel, +0.49 (+0.79%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.73.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.
  87.  2021 Monday K: Following an Australian news anchor pointing out the obvious- that the ‘leader of the Free World (Joe Biden) seems to be cognitively disabled,’ Facebook bans Australian citizens from using its platform.  WTF?  Everyone knows that ‘Pro-China Joe’ is not there.  He demonstrates it every day and the fact that Kamala Harris is making phone calls to foreign leaders should worry the hell out of everyone.  Not only is the woman easily bought, but she’s also not that bright so the American people must begin demanding an accounting of what the Democrats did during the 2020 Presidential Election.   Meanwhile, the National Spelling Bee will return but in a mostly virtual format.  Elsewhere, the liberal mainstream media is going after Newsmax, One America News, and Fox News.  They cannot stand for free-flowing speech.
  88. 2022 Tuesday: Let’s see what chicanery ensues today…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Unlike many of their contemporaries, Fairport Convention had an attitude of ‘never say die’ and thus they continued their labors in the studio and on the road.  Today’s studio album, “Shuffle and Go,” came out on February 21, 2020, and the fans hailed it as a beautiful new effort with 13 glorious tracks, all of which being originals and the other four covers.  The band features the quintet of Ric Sanders (violins), Dave Pegg (acoustic and electric basses, and tenor mandola), Simon Nichol (guitars and vocals), Gerry Conway (drums), and Chris Leslie (mandolins, fiddles, cellos, and flutes).  Again, we encourage everyone to visit their favorite nearest site for the absolute best in music, give it a good listen, and then see if you want to add it to your never-ending, always-growing collection like us.  We think you will be glad you did.

  69. 2018 Wednesday: The district attorney of San Francisco, George Gascón says that the city by the bay is going to retroactively apply its new laws regarding the now legal use of marijuana to 5,000 old convictions which is the correct thing to do.  Far too many people in the 1960s like Dino Valenti and David Freiberg of Quicksilver Messenger Service[xiii] served time for unfair convictions.  Usually, we don’t agree with most of what comes out of Frisco but this time, yes, yes, we do.
  70. 2019 Thursday: The European Parliament votes to recognize Juan Guaidó as the legitimate ruler in Caracas which leads the Maduro regime to begin arresting foreign journalists from Spain, France, and neighboring Columbia.  The Venezuelan secret police are going out and rounding up everyone they deem to be a threat.
  71. 2020 Friday: Today is the day- or so millions of Americans hope- that the impeachment farce of President Donald J. Trump will move to a vote for acquittal or if the Democrats are lucky to get what they seek- witnesses will occur.  Let us hope for the former and not the latter.  By mid-day, the Senate voted 51-49 against calling witnesses, deflating the sputtering Democratic Party balloon.  Two Republicans- Susan Collins of Maine and Mitt Romney of Utah voted with the Democrats.  Meanwhile, the first Democrat to enter the race for the 2020 Democratic Party’s presidential nomination- former Maryland Congressman John Delaney and seemingly decent guy became the 16th Democrat to bail from the race.  He entered the race- get this- on July 28, 2017.  Oh, well.  Elsewhere, the Kung Flu continues spreading across the globe.  Italy reports its first couple of cases and prohibits cruise ships from offloading thousands of passengers.  Democrats in the U.S. tell everyone to go to “Chinatown,” to ‘go hug Chinese people.’  That advice would devastate Italy and other WOKE Western nations.  
  72. 2021 Sunday: DAY TWELVE OF THE BIDEN REGIME: the Biden White House says that IT’S going to investigate the GameStop matter.  Uh, excuse us, Joe, isn’t that the job of the Treasury or Justice Departments?   Meanwhile, California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom now is coming under verbal assault from Democrats besides Republicans as the numbers demanding his recall continue increasing by the day.  This loser- Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s nephew- is going to lose his seat.   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump and the GOP have raised $255.4 million in the two months since Election Day 2020.  Elsewhere, 39.6 million Americans underwent FBI background checks for gun purchases.  Heck,  some of the chef-bloggers here bought guns last year, there is NO way we wouldn’t, especially when you consider all the left-wing Marxist violence in the streets.
  73. 2021 Sunday A:  Officer Brian Sicknick- the Capitol Hill police officer slain by Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs during the storming of Capitol Hill on January 6 will lie in state in the Rotunda in the building where he served later this week.  Elsewhere, we learn- no big surprise- that 98-percent of Twitter employees donated to Democrats.  Go figure.  Meanwhile, Claudia Tenney’s lead in her New York Congressional race is now becoming insurmountable and we expect a judge early this upcoming week to announce her the ‘winner.’  Next, President Donald J. Trump once again has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.   Finally, the Arizona state senate is hiring its own investigators to delve into the rampant election fraud that occurred in that state.        
  74. 2021 Sunday B: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 102,871,614 confirmed cases, +468,367, 2,225,773, confirmed deaths, +11,160, and 56,981,674 confirmed recoveries, +326,805.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 26,423,597 confirmed cases, up 140,106 from yesterday’s reporting, 446,010 confirmed deaths, UP 2,481, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- same as reported earlier this week.  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 old fool.  NOW.
  75. 2021 Sunday C: 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: 3,309,463 confirmed cases, 40,697 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,070 confirmed cases, 410 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 315,448 confirmed cases, 4,368 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- the Northern Marianas Islands: currently, they have 131 confirmed cases, 2 confirmed deaths, and 32 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 643,435 confirmed cases, 4,796 confirmed deaths, and 572,511 confirmed recoveries.   
  76. 2021 Sunday D: Warnings are being raised about Chi-Com megacorporation BGI Group, an entity that ostensibly seeks to process data from COVID-19 tests from around the world all for a generous price and plenty of donations where and when necessary to open the doors for them.  In exchange, they collect biodata of U.S. and global citizens which then is shipped back to the Chi-Coms who then store this data for future use.  Anytime the Chi-Coms say they want to ‘help’ a country is when everyone must awaken, take note, and begin working to push back against these totalitarian, fascist-communist thugs.  We must be aware of everything the Chi-Coms seek to do with U.S. biodata as you can be sure they are going to use it against the American people, NOT to help them as they proclaim.
  77. 2021 Sunday E: BIG NFL NEWS- L.A. Rams quarterback Jared Goff has been traded to the Detroit Lions in exchange for Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford.  The Lions will also receive two 1st round and one 3rd round draft pick.  NO PRO BOWL THIS YEAR THANKS TO THE CHI-COMS AND THEIR FLIPPING VIRUS.
  78. 2022 Monday: Stick around for the news of the day…

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…

ENDNOTES:

[i] Just like what the Democrats are attempting to do in 2020 as they try to remove President Donald J. Trump from office and to subordinate the office of the presidency- head of the Executive Branch- to the House speaker in the Legislative Branch.  How well did things work out for Europe in the 1930s-1940s?  Not so good.

[ii] We began offering the music of the Doors on Saturday, 18-February-2012 and concluded them on Monday, 02-April-2012.  We encourage everyone to seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[iii] We will present the music of Chicago sometime in 2030 so we hope you will remain with us until then.

[iv] We presented the music of Roxy Music at the secondary blog and hope to do it at the main blog sometime within the next 3 years. At the secondary blog, we began promoting the music of this famed British band as well as of Bryan Ferry, Andy Mackay, and Phil Manzanera beginning on Wednesday, September 07, 2016 through several successive months.  We hope you will seek them out.

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

[vii] We look forward to doing the music of this famed funk-rock band.  The Ohio Players are amazing and what is even more exciting is the fact that the band is still alive today and performing to this day.

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

[ix] We promoted the music of Buffalo Springfield beginning on Saturday, 17-November-2012 through Saturday, 24-November-2012.  We hope you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your collection.  You will be glad you did.

[x] The music of this famed British band, Family as well as the spin-off group, Streetwalkers, appeared on Tuesday, 08-October-2013 through Thursday, 31-October-2013.

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

[xii] We should have promoted the music of Asia around the time we did King Crimson and/or Family but we failed to do so.  However, we hope to do so sometime within the next 10-15 years.  

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

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

361. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, DECEMBER 27, 2021

60. 2021 Monday: You have me for the end of the year so let’s have some fun…good, clean Christian fun and none of this overeating, over-drinking, which seems to afflict so many of us. Our country needs God right now and everyone must beg Him to enter their lives so we can push back on these godless communists. Join me throughout the rest of this week- Chef Bea.
