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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 299,177 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 160,472 deaths

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

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

Currently, Joe is shy 160,638 deaths

[xxi]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000028.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.45 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.66.     In Mauritanian Ouguiya, one greenback equals 357.00 and in Mauritian Rupee, a buck equals 40.75 and in Moldovan Leu, one dollar equals 17.74 of theirs.[xxii]        
  65. 2021 Friday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.228 per gallon, $2.953 in Florida, $3.978 in Hawaii, and $3.630 in Washington state.[xxiii]    Let’s look at one other location- Mississippi: $2.724.  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- El Salvador: $3.797 per U.S. Gallon.[xxiv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,421,896,732,639 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Saudi Arabia, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is South Korea with $131 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position).[xxvi]
  66. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says of Joe Biden and ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris (by the way, this is Day #87 she has held this job, folks, and has yet to do one day’s work in this extremely important job), that ‘neither of them have any intention of visiting or fixing the border.’  We are sending checks to the Texas-Arizona effort to continue building the wall.  (Note- we would send even more money if they were going to lay in minefields, seed the area along the Rio Grande with loads of rattlesnakes, and other anti-personnel obstacles and barriers.  Something must happen here).
  67. 2021 Friday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– The Palestinians were set to receive 1 million doses of the Chi-Vi vaccine from Israel and then refused them by claiming they were going to expire soon.  F**k them.  Meanwhile, as Canada continues to follow the path forward blazed by Mao Zedong in the 1940s and 1950s, U.S. businesses are concerned over the failure of the Canucks to reopen their border so normal business and tourism can recommence.  (Note- we think Ottawa is going down a dark path and are using the Xi Jinping Bat Flu as their excuse for cutting off communications between our two countries.  None of us want to visit that Third World country again, especially after they interfered in the 2020 Presidential Election- that means YOU, Justin Trudeau, which means YOU, Dominion Voting Systems, which means you, YOU Marx-loving losers).
  68. 2021 Friday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Unvaccinated West Point cadets are under a great deal of pressure to get the COVID-19 vaccine or face solitary confinement.  Look, most of the U.S. military is not taking the vaccine so why should the military cadets?  Many of us remember the innumerable problems that surrounded U.S. military personnel given anthrax and other oddball vaccinations prior to George W. Bush’s illegal war in Iraq.  We stand with the cadets.   Next- and this is a good one- apparently, the AstraZeneca Chi-Com vaccine is NOT GOOD ENOUGH to get tickets to see Bruce “The Boring” Springsteen on Broadway.  Alas, what is GOOD ENOUGH- the Johnson & Johnson soul-stealing vaccine?  We didn’t want to see “The Loser” anyway.
  69. 2021 Friday I: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– Forever-pissed Stacey Abrams, election-stealing expert says she is backing Senator Joe Manchin’s voting compromise that will make Election Day a national holiday as well as to cement 15 days of early voting.  If an angry cow such as Ms. Abrams is supporting it, then it can’t be good.  (Note- we always hope that Senator Machin will ‘do the right thing’ but it’s clear that he is as malleable as is silly putty under the right pressure.
  70. 2021 Friday J: Joe Biden News– Rep. Andrew Garbarino, R-NY 1st congressional district, says that Joe Biden is not tough enough on the cybersecurity front.   In other Joe Biden news, former White House physician and current Rep. Ronny Jackson, R-TX 13th congressional district, is demanding the ‘drooler-in-chief,’ feeble old “Gropin’ Joe” Biden must take a cognitive test and even more importantly, release the results to the American people.  We wholeheartedly concur.
  71. 2021 Friday K: Political News I– As questions continue to rise over what exactly happened on January 06, 2021, and the cacophony of misinformation swirling around the greatest FALSE FLAG OPERATION the nation has ever seen, brave patriots are now asking questions as to what the FBI and their pro-Beijing Director Chris Wray knew and when did they know.  Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district, perhaps one of the greatest patriots the country has ever seen, asked the top question regarding this ginned-up mob of Antifa and Black Lives Matter human fecal matter: “Did the FBI animate the events of that day?”  (Note- we suspect they were in the thick of it, hence WHY there are more than 14,000 hours of video from that day that the public has yet to see.  We do know police on the backside of the Capitol Building waved the mob inside.  We also know that ONCE you see Confederate battle flags flying, you know the FALSE FLAG OPERATION is underway because much like the Tea Party, they never carried rebel flags, Nazi flags, or signs calling for the death of politicians.  There are not enough prisons to silence all of us.
  72. 2021 Friday L: Political News II– Two losers both on the View- lard-lady Meghan McCain (a RINO if ever one existed) and the extremely angry and belligerent (and unattractive) Whoopi Goldberg came close to trading blows on the highly-overrated program over angry old Joe Biden’s treatment of a female reporter.  Yeah, that was pretty bad.  While we dislike both these women, we would love to see ‘Lard Lady’ plant one smack dab in the puss of both Whoopi and ‘Joyless’ Joy Behar.  That would be Pay-per-View TV,  folks.
  73. 2021 Friday M: Political News III– Vice President Mike Pence speaking at the Faith and Freedom Conference in Florida was heckled and booed as a ‘traitor.’  The offenders were escorted out and the vice president’s speech continues.  Meanwhile, there’s a growing clamor for Joe Biden to ask for the resignation of “Kooky Kamala” Harris so he can replace the gibbering jackal with someone actually willing to do the job.  There also is a new bill coming forward demanding that before Willie Brown’s mattress can visit Europe, she visit the southern border FIRST.  Wow.
  74. 2021 Friday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– U.S. Department of Homeland Security Director Alejandro Mayorkas said today- without giving us a single incidence (other than the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021, which is BULLS**T) that domestic terrorism, aka white ‘supremacism’ is the federal government’s number one foe, NOT Chi-Com MSS agents, NOT violent jihadists, NOT Russian agents, NOT Antifa (remember- they’re just a philosophy), and not Black Lives Matter but white folks.  We would encourage Secretary Mayorkas to begin putting up all the threats that have been stopped so we can have some verification that what he claims is true.  Otherwise, we look at it as little more than propaganda.
  75. 2021 Friday O: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– The husband of Ashli Babbitt still seeks answers as to WHY a federal police officer felt so emboldened that he could shoot dead an unarmed woman climbing through a broken window and without warning of the impending shot?  Folks, everyone knows that what happened on January 06, 2021, has been transformed into mythic proportions but the black officer who shot her dead must come forward and answer the questions the American people demand to KNOW.  We believe that U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi- the nonagenarian clinging to the gavel in the House mandated that some people had to die so they could spin the FALSE FLAG OPERATION for the next 60 years which led to the death of Officer Brian Sicknick and U.S. military veteran Babbitt.  Call us ‘conspiracy theorists’ but don’t you think that it’s rather peculiar what actually happened with all of the lies we’ve been told?
  76. 2021 Friday P: Big Tech News– A major poll shows that the majority of Americans believe it’s time to break up Big Tech.
  77. 2021 Friday Q: Religion News– Catholic bishops are moving closer to denying Pro-Death Joe Biden communion over his crazy stance on abortion at all stages and the tacit approval of the selling of baby body parts which friends, puts us on a par with the frigging Chi-Coms.  We contend they should excommunicate EVERY politician supporting the Pro-Death Movement just as they should anyone seeking to topple the Hyde Amendment.
  78. 2021 Friday R: U.S. Senate News– Conniving Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer, DS-NY, says he is ‘going to force a vote on S. 1, the former “For the People Act,’ newly renamed the “John Lewis Voting Rights Act of 2021,” next week in the Senate and will do it sans any input from the Republicans.  Wow.
  79. 2021 Friday S: Economic News– The Fed’s Neel Kashkari advises against rate hikes until sometime towards the end of 2023.  Meanwhile, because of cancellations across 2020-2021, American Airlines has had to refund more than $12 billion in airline tickets.
  80. 2021 Friday T: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega Millions Draw #1669 with a $30 million pot on the line: 14, 36, 44, 46, 53, and Mega 18.  Out of 42,648 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $23,671.
  81. 2021 Friday U: The Wrap Up–  Late breaking news this evening says that- voila!- today, the Biden regime froze military aid to the Ukraine- including lethal weaponry.  This occurs smack dab on the heels of uh, the, uh, Putin-Biden summit in Geneva, Switzerland.  Now, we have been around long enough to recall that when President Donald J. Trump SUPPOSEDLY held up aid to Ukraine to ‘get dirt’ on the Bidens, Democrats impeached him- the first time.  Wow.  Where’s the little bitch, Rep. Adam “Bug-Eyes” Schiff, DS-CA 28th congressional district?  What about that ogre, Rep. Jerrold “Tub of Goo” Nadler, DS-NY 10th congressional district?  Where are the calls for “IMPEACHMENT!  IMPEACHMENT!  IMPEACHMENT!”  Where are they?  Not long after this report appeared, the Biden regime said it ‘was nonsense.’  Sure, right.  You gave Vladimir Putin the oil pipeline and now you’ve finished the job you and Barack Hussein Obama started; you are giving the Ukraine to Vladimir Putin.  My, my, my, the cockroaches always come out at night (and in Hawaii, they fly)…
  82. 2022 Saturday: Everyone knows the drill…

[i] 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.

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

[iii] Not sure when Guns ‘n’ Roses is coming but we hope we will still be alive and will get around to sharing them with the world.

[iv] NONE of us believe we will live long enough to promote the music of Ravi Shankar although we wish we could.  Ditto classical music but then- you just never know.

[v] We look forward to promoting the music of the Blues Project within the next five years or so.

[vi] We promoted the music of Big Brother and the Holding Company, beginning on Monday, 18-July-2011 through Tuesday, 26-July-2011.  At the time, we were not farsighted enough to offer the music of Janis Joplin but hope to do so at some point in the near future when we return to promoting the music of American rock bands.

[vii] 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.

[viii] We should have shared the music of Badfinger at the time we promoted that of the Beatles but guess what?  We flipping failed just as we failed to promote the music of Thunderclap Newman at the same time, we did the Who.  One day, we sure as heck will so, please remain vigilant.

[ix] 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.

[x] We promoted the music of the Jimi Hendrix Experience and of Jimi Hendrix, beginning on Sunday, 22-December-2013 through Thursday, 16-January-2014.  Look for them and add them to your collection.

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

[xii] We hope to share the music of this legendary artist, the VOICE of the Summer of Love and far beyond.  “If you’re going to San Francisco, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair…”

[xiii] 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.

[xiv] Not sure as to when we will do the music of Bruce Springsteen.

Currently, Joe is shy 161,467 deaths

  63. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.227 per gallon, $2.962 in Florida, $3.978 in Hawaii, and $3.625 in Washington state.[xix]    Let’s look at one other location- Minnesota: $2.858.  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- Lesotho: $3.766 per U.S. Gallon.[xx]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,413,747,338,681 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 which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after India, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Singapore with $168 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position).[xxii]
  64. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Friends, today is Day #85 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the border calamity and not to have shown up for a single day’s work on the job.  Still, President Donald J. Trump will be visiting the Texas-Mexico border with Governor Greg Abbott, Republican, on June 30.  Many are speculating as to whether the laughing jackass border czar will rush down to the border for a quick photo op or won’t show up thereby proving our point, she is little more than a low IQ, empty pantsuit, the former ‘mattress’ of California Democratic Party bigwig, Willie Brown.  Ah, well, speaking of Governor Abbott, the patriotic Texas governor said that President Donald J. Trump set a ‘high mark’ for control of the southern border.
  65. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Meanwhile, One America News shared the latest stats today concerning the border cataclysm: (1) Cost this day of caring for millions of illegal aliens: $585,083,840.  (2) Total Cost this Year of caring for the tidal wave of illegal aliens: $182,502,932,480.  (3) Total numbers of illegals who have crossed into the U.S. this year: 1,870,509.  (4) Estimated total number of illegals sucking away at the teats of the American taxpayers: 35,870,508.  Note, we have said since 2009 at the blog’s inception that the total numbers were 35-50 million; now, we believe we have 75-100 million river-swimming, fence-climbing, and/or desert-crossing illegals in the U.S.  IF we deported ALL the illegals gobbling away at the benefits of being an American, rents and mortgages would precipitously drop, wages would go up, our students would become better-educated and would move through the educational system at a faster pace, Social Security and Medicare would be strengthened, and there would be far fewer Americans drawing unemployment and welfare checks.  There would also be less crime, fewer drunken driving fatalities, less rapes- especially of minors, fewer break-ins, less shop-lifting, you name it, our country would be in such better shape, it’s difficult to comprehend until you start comprehending it.  Yet, they want them here which to us verifies the veracity of the Replacement Theory.  Still, we say, BUILD THE WALL AND DEPORT THEM ALL.  NOW.  Update- “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis, R-FL, is sending law enforcement officers to Texas and Arizona to help defend the southern border.  God bless him!
  66. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Fred Fleitz, CEO of the Center for Security Policy, made the witty observation that the ‘Europeans LOVE decrepit old Joe Biden’ because ‘America is back.’  America is back meaning the U.S. will be footing the bill while the Europeans are allowed to renege on their obligations.  Speaking of Joe Biden overseas, the summit between he and Russian President Vladimir Putin failed to go the distance today.  Instead of going the full five hours promised by the ‘drooler-in-chief,’ it went about half that.  President Putin held a press conference first and ripped the U.S. leader a new one in subtle and witty ways while Joe then came out, held his, and we must say, the Aduhelm must have been working well today because we would give his press conference a C+ grade.  (Note- we don’t expect to see the feeble old perv for about a week now as he tries to recover from this challenging trip).   The two leaders apparently agreed to a return to the arms control treaty negotiations (all the while the Chi-Coms[xxiii] continue building a massive arsenal) as well as to the exchange of diplomats once again.  Former Rep. Peter King, R-NY 2nd congressional district, said it was ‘way too early for Joe Biden to be meeting with President Vladimir Putin.
  67. 2021 Wednesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information– Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom, DS-CA, says that the ‘new system for checking his citizens’ status for the Chi-Vi vaccine are NOT a vaccine passport.  (Good- because we are not going to get this crap anyway- see you in November, governor).  Next, a new report says that at a pop-up vaccination site in New York City, medical personnel carried out 899 ‘jabs’ using defective vaccines.  Say what?  Yet another reason to avoid this crap.  Elsewhere, the U.S. government has spent more taxpayer monies buying 14 million Johnson & Johnson vaccines for overseas export.  Meanwhile, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says he is ‘yet to get a response from either the National Institute of Health (NIH) or from Health and Human Services on his questions about the China Virus.  Senator- you won’t get a peep from either the NIH or HHS.  Next, brave scientists are calling for investigations into various ‘scientific journals’ that dismissed the Wuhan Institute of Virology lab leak theory.’  Excellent.  ‘Follow the science,’ folks…
  68. 2021 Wednesday J: Joe Biden Regime News I– “Kooky Kamala” Harris apparently trying to force a far-left agenda into the American economic system.  Not good, folks, not good.  Next- and this is the best one of the day- senile old Joe Biden is encouraging Americans to report radicalized family members, friends, and neighbors to the authorities so the RACE POLICE can swoop in and spirit them away in the dead of night to one of their black site secret prisons.  This smacks of the Gestapo’s Nacht und Nebel policy by which political dissidents disappeared during the dark of night.  Wow.   Meanwhile, the Biden regime releases its first list of top diplomatic nominees for overseas deployment.  Wonder where Rahm “Dead Fish” Emanuel will go?  Japan doesn’t want the POS.  Finally, Joe Biden is reversing yet another Trump Era policy by providing increased protections to tranny students, i.e., mostly ‘chicks with dicks’ students, what we used to call ‘exotics.’
  69. 2021 Wednesday K: Joe Biden News– When reporters asked fumbling Joe Biden if he STILL THOUGHT that Russian President Vladimir Putin was a ‘killer,’ the usurper in the White House did his best “Kooky Kamala” Harris imitation and broke out in maniacal laughter before forgetting the question.  Friends, this is embarrassing to have a mentally-incapacitated dimwit in the White House.  This is, indeed, the SHAME of our country.  Speaking of our national embarrassment, Joe Biden claims to have given President Putin the ‘what for’ during their short meeting.  Question: when everyone returns to the United States, will the U.S. Congress demand that Joe’s interpreters appear before congressional committees and tell the lawmakers what was really said and how poorly Joe’s performance was?[xxiv]  Remember, after President Donald J. Trump met with his Russian counterpart, Democrats were demanding the interpreters testify to exactly what was said during the two leaders’ private meeting.  (Note- we don’t expect this will ever happen).
  70. 2021 Wednesday L: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger feeling intense heat down his backside is now going to investigate the missing ballots transfer documents and chain of custody.  From what we hear, there were more illegal ballots in Fulton County, Georgia, than anywhere else in the state and it’s clear that if an HONEST and IMPARTIAL audit is conducted, we will learn the truth.  We await more information…
  71. 2021 Wednesday M: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– New reports suggest that law enforcement recruitment is way, way down, while retirements are skyrocketing.  We imagine many law enforcement officers could find employment in Arizona and Texas, especially if those two states are going to continue fortifying their frontiers and creating their own statewide border patrols.
  72. 2021 Wednesday N: Political News I– New York City finds itself being consumed by a self-made problem: in midtown Manhattan, tens of thousands of ‘urban outdoorsmen’ have set up tent cities.  Wow.  Next, the House GOP seeks a review of BIG TECH’S close ties to the Chi-Coms.   In other news, Texas Democrats are launching a last-ditch effort to stop the Constitutional Carry Bill becoming the law of the Lone Star State.  Screw the little wimps. Elsewhere, Chicago Mayor Lori “The Loser” Lightfoot is seeking to halt alcohol sales after midnight.  Uh, what will this accomplish?  People will buy their liquor at 11:59 P.M.   Finally, Pennsylvania Democrat Rep. Madeleine Dean, 4th congressional district, is NOT going to seek the seat of outgoing RINO Senator Pat Toomey.
  73. 2021 Wednesday O: Political News II– Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, proposes changes to Dem-backed voting bill newly renamed from the “For the People Act” to the “John Lewis Voting Rights Act” which means it’s still the same old shit, repackaged, and returned to the shelf.  NO one buy this stinking piece of crap bill.  Meanwhile, Rep. Greg Steube, R-FL 17th congressional district, working on behalf of the family of Ashli Babbitt says information on her shooting death at the U.S. Capitol Building during the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021, is difficult to come by.  He is seeking answer as to whom the Capitol Hill police officer who shot her dead is and the circumstances as to WHY he shot her, an unarmed woman, attempting to climb through a broken window.  Moving on, GOP House and Senate members return to Washington, D.C., to hold their weekly conference.  Republicans- how about this: how about demanding answers as to WTF the Capitol Hill protesters are still locked up, mostly in solitary confinement?  IF you don’t defend these people, one day, the government will come for you.[xxv]
  74. 2021 Wednesday P: NASA, Space, and UFO News– Noted UFO filmmaker Jeremy Corbell says that when the UFO report comes out later this month, it will reveal uncomfortable truths for the American people.  Mr. Corbell told Rob Schmitt on Newsmax that the New York Times has said that the report will leave out the possibility of the technology being seen is a secret U.S. military program much less a Chi-Com or Russian program.  That will leave us with but one simple truth: it’s from somewhere else, NOT of this Earth.  Look, if it were Chi-Com, Russian, Iranian, or North Korean, do you think they would not already be ruling the planet?  Of course it’s from somewhere else and that means there is little to nothing we can do about it except await its arrival.  Elsewhere, SpaceX supposedly ignored an FAA warning regarding the launch of its Starship SN8 launch in December 2020.  We are sure Elon Musk had good reasons to blow off the FAA.
  75. 2021 Wednesday Q: Big Tech News– Amazon.com has introduced its new surveillance system to grocery stores.
  76. 2021 Wednesday R: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– Tonight, we have the Super Lotto Draw #3569 with a $55 million jackpot on the line as well as the Powerball Draw #855 with a $40 million pot on the line.  Stay tuned for tonight’s results…okay, here are the numbers for the Super Lotto: 01, 06, 21, 38, 39, and Mega 10.  Out of 147,354 winning tickets, the highest winners were THREE people who had FIVE numbers but no Mega for a prize of $16,603 apiece.  The tickets were sold at (1) Shell in Visalia, CA 93277; (2) Sunrise Market and Gas, San Diego, CA, 92102; and (3) Ronnie’s Market and Deli, Stockton, CA 95204.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball: 19, 29, 34, 44, 50, and Powerball 25.  In California, out of 40,139 winning tickets, the highest winners were 21 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $555 apiece.
  77. 2021 Wednesday S: Sports News– NBA star, point guard, Chris Paul of the Phoenix Suns is in COVID-19 protocols at the moment.  Not sure as to when he will be able to return.
  78. 2021 Wednesday T: Observation of the Day– Friends, there is BUT ONE WAY to STOP the tidal wave of illegal aliens pouring across the southern border and that is, the GOP must make a tactical decision with which to aid the overall strategy in combatting Joe Biden’s crimes.  We must make the tactical effort to reach out to the illegal aliens who are here, to make it appear that we are going to bring them into OUR FOLD.  We must make the Democrats believe we are recruiting illegals to become future GOP voters like the Democrats recruit children for immoral purposes.  We must enlist, recruit, and dragoon illegal aliens into becoming solid GOP members as once the Democrats realize they are losing on this battlefront, the trains, planes, buses, automobiles, and even empty freighters will be running 24/7/365 to get illegal aliens out of the country.  Once they begin shipping them out, we can throw the ones who helped us aboard those outbound modes of travel in the same way once the Indian Wars were over, General George Crook threw the Indian scouts onto the trains carrying the beaten Native Americans to the reservations.  It is a matter of saving the country so let’s make some tactical decisions NOW so our strategy can become reality at a future date.
  79. 2022 Thursday: Stick around and discover the events of the day along with us…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Mike Love was the next Beach Boy to release a solo album, “Looking Back with Love” on October 08, 1981.  While Mike has sung some of the most well-known Beach Boys tunes, his songwriting talents were not always as good as the Wilson Brothers or Alan Jardine or Bruce Johnston, thus he gets panned by the critics.  Mike also was not as forward-looking as was say, Carl, in that he favored performing the ‘golden oldies’ while Carl and Dennis pushed the band to move forward into the future.  Still, fans of Mike Love ‘love’ the album which is why we have it here for your enjoyment.  We hope you will seek this one out and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure.  We think you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.
