1961 Sunday: An out-of-control mob attacks the Freedom Riders in Anniston and Birmingham, Alabama while a horde of Southern Democrat racists burns their bus.

Trump is our president.  He will thwart them.

  64. 2020 Thursday: The left produces yet another limp-wristed sniveler on this date.  Self-proclaimed ‘whistleblower’ Dr. Rick Wright sits before the U.S. Congress crying and whining that ‘NO ONE LISTENED TO ME’ when in fact everyone was working hard to accomplish the same thing: defeating the Wuhan Virus Crisis.  Speaking of communist China’s ‘gift to the world that won’t stop giving,’ here are the latest statistics: globally, we have 4,434,590 confirmed number of cases, 301,937 confirmed deaths, and 1,583,929 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 1,446,802 confirmed number of cases, 86,465 confirmed deaths, and 249,422 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats: first, California: 71,141 confirmed number of cases, 2,934 confirmed deaths, but 0 confirmed recoveries- what’s up, Gov.

  66. 2021 Friday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, there have been 283,148 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 176,461 deaths.

  70. 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- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.121 per gallon, $2.896 in Florida, $3.850 in Hawaii, and $3.530 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- Tennessee: $2.889.  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- Azerbaijan: $2.227 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,286,444,952,247 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  71. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Soon, the centurions guarding our southern border may step aside.  U.S. Customs and Border Patrol officers are chafing beneath the ultra-left-wing policies of the Biden regime.  Senator Tommy Tuberville, R-AL, says that CBP and ICE are being overwhelmed by the flood pouring across the border (which is why we encourage the laying in of minefields, anti-personnel, anti-vehicle, anti-boat obstacles, layers of concertina razor wire out into the middle of the Rio Grande as well as Foo Gas pits (liquified napalm) in high-traffic areas for illegal aliens.  We must do whatever we must do to save our country).
  72. 2021 Friday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– thanks to the massive cash infusion dumped into the laps of the Palestinian thugs, rockets continue flying across the border between Gaza and Israel- as well as southbound from Lebanon and westbound from Syria- into Israel.  The Israelis are taking them down, but the barrages are growing, and the Joe Biden regime won’t stand with Israel.  Where are the other signatories of the Abraham Accords?  Why are they NOT demanding the human fecal matter in Gaza stop the attacks?  In other horribly shocking news, the United States is sending ADDITIONAL FINANCIAL AID to the Palestinian maggots in Gaza.  We say the only aid they need is a few dozen neutron bombs.  Reclaim the land.
  73. 2021 Friday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information I–  President Donald J. Trump touts his vaccines and says that ‘Joe Biden had NOTHING to do with them.’  True, absolutely true.  Meanwhile, evangelical pastor Franklin Graham is warning Christians NOT to wait too long and miss out on getting the Chi-Vi vaccines.  Uh, Pastor Graham- we are not going to get this crap injected into our bodies.  It is unlike any other vaccine in the world.  It is RNA-based as no other vaccine in the history of medicine is.   Elsewhere, Wal-Mart says that vaccinated patrons will no longer have to wear face masks while New York and New Jersey- no matter what ‘the science’ says are going to require facial coverings for everyone.  Period.
  74. 2021 Friday I: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information II– Next, drooling old Joe Biden says ‘it’s a wonderful day that the masks can come off’…yet, somehow, they aren’t.  Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi says that ‘NO matter what the Centers for Disease Control says, everyone in the House chamber will wear masks except when speaking on the floor.’  Oh, well.   Elsewhere, a new poll says that young people believe that in order for everyone to return to work and/or school, they are going to have to get the Bat Fu Yuk vaccine or no go.  The youngsters have drunk long and deep from the well of Kool-Aid.  Speaking of this insanity, Delta Airlines says (get this) ‘ALL new hires must get the China Virus vaccine but existing employees, well, they don’t have to…’  WTF?
  75. 2021 Friday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News–  As if we required additional proof that the 2020 Elections were corrupt in a variety of states, Dominion Voting Systems WON’T provide the passwords for their tabulators to the Arizona Senate’s investigation into election integrity last November.  IF there was ever a reason to go to war with Canada, this is among the top reasons.  Canada- force YOUR company to cooperate or Americans will begin boycotting your crap-hole country.  Speaking of 2020, loser Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, the darling of the Democratic Party now that she has lost her position as GOP Conference chair- says she ‘regrets voting for Donald Trump in 2020.’  Oh, really- YOU voted for President Trump?  We find that difficult to believe.
  76. 2021 Friday K: Political News I–  the House GOP elected Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY, to fill the shoes of the disloyal Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, today.  President Donald J. Trump gave her a thumb’s up seal of approval.   Speaking of the president, we hear that MAGA rallies will commence soon, most likely in the early summer.[xviii]  Fantastic.  Next, Governor Doug Ducey, RINO-AZ, now refuses to accept any additional federal money for expanded unemployment benefits and will instead offer EVERY employee who returns to work a $2,000 incentive.  Excellent.   In other news, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez aka AOC aka Baby Evita aka the Fly aka Sandy Cortez is expressing TERROR of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district.  Rep. Greene is puzzled as to WHY the so-called “FLY” is fearful of debating her Green New Deal with Rep. Greene?  If she believes in the GND, then she needs to debate it in public.
  77. 2021 Friday L: Political News II– Recently, an Antifa protester was heard to say, “I CAN’T WAIT UNTIL BLACK PEOPLE ARE LYNCHING WHITE PEOPLE.”  So much for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  (Note- we predicted years back that it would be a few years before Antifa, and BLM began carrying out their own beheading videos of people they claim to be enemies.  That’s why we have guns).  Next, Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, has labeled Hamas what it is: a terrorist group.  Good.  Next, the U.S. House of Representatives agrees on a ‘bipartisan panel’ to investigate the events the ‘Capitol Hill Riots’ of January 06, 2021, the largest FALSE FLAG OPERATION in the history of America and her politics.   We learn from Tucker Carlson this evening on Fox News Channel that the U.S. Department of Justice has loads of unreleased photographic evidence that could blow the entire sham out of the water.  This, we got to see.  Moving on, a recent Rasmussen poll says that liberal news viewers are woefully uneducated on the massive rise in violent crime across the country.
  78. 2021 Friday M: Political News III– A federal judge in Alabama upholds an anti-riot bill.  Next, a new anti-abortion bill in Texas is expected to receive Governor Greg Abbott’s signature.  Meanwhile, Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom is fighting to protect his job now and is offering $30 million tax breaks to initiate new film and TV projects, the very same ones he drove out of the state to seek less-expensive locations for their work.  Next, since Amazon had access to a mailbox used by its employees, the union vote they won in the Peach State could be overturned.  Whoa.  We are surprised the workers ‘didn’t vote’ to unionize.  That seemed mighty peculiar that all of a sudden, the became lovers of Jeff Bezos.  Wow.
  79. 2021 Friday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– In another detestable (and anti-American) Biden regime news, ‘Usurper Joe’ is going to cancel President Donald J. Trump’s ‘Garden of American Heroes’ project.  What a bum.   Speaking of the ‘drooler,’ Rep. Tim Burchett, R-TN 2nd congressional district, says the ‘Joe Biden White House is out of control.’  Meanwhile, regarding the aforementioned continuation of mask mandates, Joe Biden- always out of step with whatever is going on, says ‘it’s a momentous day for America that we no longer have to wear masks.’  What?  In other Biden regime news, Joe tossed out President Donald J. Trump’s ban on illegal aliens who would become burdensome to American taxpayers because of illness.  That’s great, Joe.  Yet another chink in the Cloward & Piven chain of crumbling the United States.
  80. 2021 Friday O: Business News– Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district, says it’s ‘appalling’ that the $5 million ransom was paid to Darkside, the company that devastated the Colonial Pipeline.  Speaking of Darkside, they are now said to be targeting Japan’s Toshiba.   Joe Biden, however, won’t admit to the $4-5 million ransom being paid to the Russian government-approved hackers.  (Note- when Russia was said to be paying bounties for the deaths of Americans, they wanted President Trump to go to war with the Russkies.  Seems like Joe should be dropping nukes atop Moscow right now).  Elsewhere, even with the Colonial pipeline up and running, the gas crunch is affecting Washington, D.C.  Go figure.
  81. 2021 Friday P: Miscellaneous News I– California’s Vandenberg Air Force Base will be renamed Space Force Base.  Elsewhere, Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt, GOP, has been booted from the Tulsa Race Riot Panel over him being insensitive to the plight of people of color by signing a bill banning Critical Race Theory.  Next, Columbus, Ohio, has settled on a payment of $10 million to the family of Andre Hill whom a law enforcement officer shot dead last year.  Like the settlement for the family of George Floyd prior to the trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin so, too, does this settlement come ahead of the trial of now-fired Police Officer Adam Coy who also is facing a murder charge.  Officer Coy won’t receive a fair trial either.
  82. 2021 Friday Q: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Poor Chrissy Teigen just got dumped by Target who canceled her line of cookware once information came to light that she is a cyberbully.  Wow.  Didn’t see that one coming.   In other WOKE news, Norman Public Schools in Oklahoma paid $22,750 to equity trainers to indoctrinate their students.  What a load of crap.  Let’s return to the DREAM of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.- he had us on the right track and now, WOKE is everything.  Sad.   Speaking of WOKE, New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov’ still cannot cop to his sexual harassment claims by putting the onus on the women he was feeling up.  What a guy.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Murray Wilson- the Beach Boys’ manager and father of three of them- was an abusive POS and by this time had damaged son, Brian’s eardrum following several slaps upside the head; yet Brian still cranked out the tunes.  “All Summer Long” came out on July 13, 1964, and continued the group’s meteoric rise to heights heretofore unseen in American music.  The band featured Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals and saxophones), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), and Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals).  The tunes on this one are ones we cherish to this day such as “I Get Around,” “All Summer Long,” “Hushabye,” “Little Honda,” “Wendy,” and “Don’t Back Down.”  One gets a varied selection of surfin’ tunes, hot rod tunes, and hot chicks on the beach tunes which are as delightful now as they were more than half a century ago.  We hope you will seek this one out and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure.  We think you will be extremely happy you did.  Enjoy.

Currently, Joe is shy 180,827 deaths.   Now that the CDC says it’s ‘okay’ for kids aged 12-15 to get the shots, the Biden regime is urging parents to rush their children to the nearest drug store to get their immunizations for the Bat Fu Yuk out of Wuhan, communist China.

  67. 2021 Wednesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,022 confirmed cases, 6,378 confirmed deaths, and 831,794 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- North Macedonia, the birthplace of Alexander the Great (sorry, Greece): 154,372 cases of the virus, 5,151 confirmed deaths and 139,266 confirmed recoveries.[xiii]     
  68. 2021 Wednesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,587.66, DOWN 681.50 points (-1.99%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,031.68, DOWN 357.75 points (-2.67%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,063.04, DOWN 89.06 points (-2.14%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $65.65 per barrel, -0.43 (-0.65%).  The price of GOLD is $1,816.70 per troy oz., -6.10 (-0.33%) while the price of SILVER is $27.17 per troy ounce, -0.07 (-0.27%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,218.00 per troy oz, -7.90 (-0.64%) while the price of COPPER is $4.72 per pound, -0.01 (-0.26%).[xiv]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,868.52 per troy oz, -68.71 (-2.34%).[xv] The price of RHODIUM is $27,700.00 per troy oz., -700.00 (-2.46%).[xvi]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000019.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.16.     In South Korean Won, one greenback equals 1,132.63 and in South Sudanese Pound, a buck equals 130.26 and in Sri Lankan Rupee, one dollar equals 195.50 of theirs.[xvii]    Meanwhile, Tesla, Apple, and Microsoft are driving the stock markets down.  However, credit card debt has fallen by $49 billion over the past year.  Elsewhere, U.S. consumer prices have gone up by 0.08-percent in April which does not bode well for the American people what with the Consumer Price Index up from a year ago by 4.21-percent.  This is the largest increase since 2009.  Hmmm, what does 2021 have in common with 2009?  Let’s see- Obama-Biden were in the White House and now we have the regime of Biden-Harris in the White House.  See the parallels?  In other business news, thanks to the gas shortage slowing deliveries, Chick-Fill-A is rationing its famous secret sauce.
  69. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.112 per gallon, $2.886 in Florida, $3.840 in Hawaii, and $3.522 in Washington state.[xviii]    Let’s look at one other location- South Carolina: $2.820.  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- Egypt: $2.114 per U.S. Gallon.[xix]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,278,809,428,671 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.
  70. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Today is Day 50 for ‘Border Czar “Kooky Kamala” Harris NOT to visit the border.  Meanwhile, the Biden regime continues the so-called ‘controversial’ Title 42 implemented by President Donald J. Trump back in March 2020 to close the southern border over Bat Fu Yuk concerns to all but the most essential travel.  People are asking where “Kooky Kamala” stands on the Biden regime continuing the Trump policy?  (Note- we all believe that the border remains wide open and that armies of illegal aliens continue pouring across it which is why we suggest seeding the Rio Grande with alligator pups, lining the border with minefields, laying in foo gas pits, building anti-personnel, anti-vehicle, and \anti-boat obstacles,  as well as to station fast-response units along the border.  We also believe that U.S. Special Forces MUST carry out targeted assassinations of human traffickers, smugglers, and other criminals operating along our southern border).  (Additional note- NO matter what these lying Biden regime officials say, people are still flooding across the southern border.  Period.  In April, more than 178,000 illegals were apprehended crossing the border while 6,000 illegal aliens per day are being released into the interior of the country.  Hunting licenses anyone?).[xxi]
  71. 2021 Wednesday G: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Fighting between the Israelis and the human fecal matter in Gaza continues, thanks to the Biden regime sending billions to the Iranians and millions to the Palestinian terrorists.  Missiles are crisscrossing the border with at least 55 dead, most of whom are Palestinians.[xxii]  The Israelis have launched targeted missile strikes on the Islamic National Bank and the Finance Ministry in Gaza leveling both buildings to the ground.  Speaking of the Iranians, so-called ‘Climate Czar’ John F. “Lurch” Kerry swore today that he NEVER informed the Iranians of Israeli covert ops in Syria.  The Iranians claim otherwise.  Still, the Biden regime is sending a flunky from the U.S. State Department to broker some sort of peace deal between the warring sides.  Good luck.  (Note- at least befuddled old Joe says that ‘Israel has a right to exist and to defend itself.  Exceptionally good, Joe, exceptionally good).
  72. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News II– Joe Biden’s erratic policies according to a new report are giving the Chi-Coms the ‘edge’ over the United States.  We concur.  In another surprise news, the U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is sanctioning a Chi-Com official, Yu Hui, who USED to hold office that allowed him to persecute the Falun Gong and other religious minorities.  Wow.  Next, Secretary Blinken stressed ‘U.S. resolve’ to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.  We bet Mr. Lavrov was trembling in his shoes.
  73. 2021 Wednesday I: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– A new report says that thanks to the Chi-Coms and their release of the ‘VID around the world and to the United States, drug overdose deaths in the U.S. went back up in 2020.  Thank you, Chi-Coms, thank you.  Meanwhile, U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas is raising questions about events that have become commonplace during the China Virus pandemic such as lockdowns and restrictions, especially on religious liberties.  Elsewhere, a panel agreed that the WHO- the World Health Organization- should have greater latitude in investigating the origins of pandemics.  Currently, the WHO is in the pocket of the Beijing Bullies.  Moving on, the Buckeye State is giving vaccinated citizens the opportunity to win a lottery of $1 million.  They hope everyone will rush out to get the vaccine.
  74. 2021 Wednesday J: Joe Biden Regime News I– White House reporters are lambasting the Biden regime over its lack of transparency.  Dumb asses, listen up!  First, Joe Biden can only get it together once or twice a week.  The man is senile.  Second, what you see is a continuation of the Obama-Biden regime that shut out the news media, conducted its own in-house photography sessions, and even spied and jailed reporters.  YOU OWN THIS.  They are unhappy that the White House comm team edits all quotes before they go to press.  Wow.  Sounds like Joseph Goebbels is somewhere behind the scenes…Elsewhere, 120 former U.S. military and Department of Defense officials are warning about the peril our country faces as well as that from Joe Biden’s mental fitness (or lack of it).
  75. 2021 Wednesday K: Joe Biden Regime News II– The Biden regime is going to provide federal COVID-19 relief aid to ILLEGAL ALIENS.  Next, Joe Biden is going full-blown Cloward and Piven by pushing his $4.1 trillion spending bill.  He said to the BIG FOUR House and Senate leaders- Kevin McCarthy and “Cocaine  Mitch” McConnell on the right side of the aisle and “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer and Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi- that all he has to do is ‘to snap his (flaccid) fingers and so it shall be.’  Whoa, Joe, whoa. The GOP leaders told ‘Forgetful Joe’ moments later that ‘raising taxes on the American people is a nonstarter.’  
  76. 2021 Wednesday L: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News–  According to Newsmax, prosecutors in the Derek Chauvin case asked for an ‘upward departure’ which means that they want Chauvin to get more time than he originally would have due to the fact that he abused his power.  The judge in the case agreed and made a ruling that will allow the sentence to become harsher both for him and the other three officers awaiting trial.   Meanwhile, the POS shooter who opened up in Times Square, New York City, a few days ago and shot three people including a young child was apprehended down in Florida. 
  77. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News I– Last night, she was running her mouth and today, she is still running her mouth.  Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, was voted out as House GOP conference chair.  She went to the mics after being humiliated and said she ‘will work to make sure that President Donald J. Trump NEVER gets close to the White House ever again.’  WTF is wrong with you, Liz?  Just cross over to the Democrat side of the aisle, you and your father were NEVER flipping Republicans, you frigging moron.[xxiii]  Ret. Col. Denton Knapp says, ‘Cheney’s ouster was justified.’  Correct.  She is not a team player.  However, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, says that the ‘House GOP will advance with a unified conservative vision’ as the real battle is winning the House (and Senate) back in 2022.
  78. 2021 Wednesday N: Political News II– Yet another Democrat domino topples, this time new tax records show that a former staffer for Senator Dianne “The Disoriented” Feinstein- Daniel Jones who runs the ultra-left-wing, pro-Marxist TDIP, aka the Democracy Integrity Project, colluded with George Soros, the globalist former Nazi now a pro-communist scumbag to fund the so-called ‘Steele Dossier,’ the phony document with which the Democrats went after President Donald J. Trump.  It is amazing as to how as time passes; more information comes to light that continues to show just what an evil, bogus sham investigation the ‘Special Counsel’ Robert S. Mueller III was.  NOTHING BUT CRAP.  Meanwhile, Senator Maggie Hassan, DS-NH, considered to be most at risk in next year’s elections, blasts the Biden regime’s economic policies as being bad for the Granite State.  Wise up, Joe.  Even members of your party are preparing to swim against the current.
  79. 2021 Wednesday O: Political News III– Two far-left Democratic-Socialist senators, “Crazy Mazie” Hirono, Hawaii, and “Creepy Cory” Booker, New Jersey, are planning to set up a ‘new caucus’ in the haloed halls of Congress (yeah, right), the BIPOC- Black, Indigenous, and People of Color caucus.  Wow.  Big deal.  ONLY Democrats who are ‘black, indigenous, and people of color’ will qualify while Republicans who identify with those same groups will be kept at arm’s length as though they have B.O.  What a load of crap.  Still, look at the two losers setting it up and we mean LOSERS, with a capital “L.”  Elsewhere, H.R. 1 is stuck in a Senate committee.  We hope it remains there as though it’s in a tar pit.
  80. 2021 Wednesday P: National Security News– The federal government is easing restrictions in 12 states with which to combat the gasoline shortages thanks to the cyberattack on the Colonial pipeline that runs from Texas through 16 other states ending up in Maine.  Yet, the feds do not seem to want to address the hack, claiming it’s a confidential business matter.  Uh-huh.  Experts claim that the cyberattack exposes the lack of required defenses protecting pipelines such as the Colonial pipeline. 
  81. 2021 Wednesday Q: Big Tech News– Rep. Ken Buck, R-CO 4th congressional district, is demanding answers from CEO Tim Cook and Apple regarding their use of SLAVE LABOR in Chi-Com concentration camps in Xinjiang Province and elsewhere within that communist country.  Crickets. 
  82. 2021 Wednesday R: Popular Culture News– The Rock-and-Roll Hall of Fame inductees for 2021 are Jay-Z[xxiv], the Go-Gos[xxv], and the Foo Fighters[xxvi] who all got in on their first nomination as well as Carole King[xxvii], Todd Rundgren[xxviii], and Tina Turner[xxix].  Congratulations.  What about the Monkees?[xxx]  Meanwhile, Ellen DeGeneres is giving up her TV talk show after 19 years of being a major guiding light.
  83. 2021 Wednesday S: Religion News– Catholic bishops in the U.S. are pushing back against Marxist Pope Francis edict on NOT denying Joe Biden and other wayward Pro-Death politicians by urging everyone to sign onto a petition to make sure the Hyde Amendment continues being the law of the land.  The Hyde Amendment prohibits U.S. taxpayer dollars being used to fund abortions.  (Note- Pope Francis, YOU need to resign NOW).  
  84. 2021 Wednesday T: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto And Powerball Draws–  First, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3559 with a $45 million jackpot on the line: 01, 19, 20, 38, 54, and Powerball 17.  Out of 127,842 winning tickets, the highest winners were THREE people who had FIVE numbers for a prize of $14,328 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold in (1) Oh Those Donuts in Costa Mesa, CA 92627; (2) Safeway in Walnut Creek, CA 94596; and (3) Easy Money in San Francisco, CA 94122.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #845, the one with $168 million on the line: 01, 19, 20, 38, 54, and Powerball 17.  Out of 68,297 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were THREE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $12,438 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

As we said yesterday, manager and father Murray Wilson was keeping the Beach Boys at a frenetic pace.  The band’s fourth album, “Little Deuce Coupe,” came out on October 07, 1963, and was a repackaging of sorts of the band’s hot rod songs plus loads of other new tunes.  Brian Wilson was writing at a lightning pace and the tunes were all great to be sure.  Featured here are “Little Deuce Coupe,” “Be True to Your School,” “Shut Down,” “Spirit of America,” and “A Young Man is Gone.”  The band features Brian Wilson (bass, piano, and vocals), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Carl Wilson (lead guitar and vocals), Mike Love (vocals), and Alan Jardine (rhythm guitar and vocals), a neighborhood friend like Marks.  This is a wonderful album one we know everyone is going to enjoy so zip on out and add this one to your collection- we think you will be extremely glad you did.  Enjoy.

[i] We began promoting the music of Mountain beginning on Friday, 14-December-2012 through Sunday, 20-January-2013.  This also included West, Bruce & Laing but sadly, we overlooked Leslie West’s solo career so please stay tuned for his discography sometime in the next 8-12 years.

[ii] We promoted the music of the Small Faces, Faces, and a bunch more interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We encourage everyone to search out the music of the various bands in this collection so you can add them to your growing music collection.

[iii] We began promoting the music of an interconnected group of bands including the Small Faces, Faces, and Rod Stewart beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This was a massive undertaking of rock bands and solo artists so we hope you will seek them out and consider adding the music to your album collection.

[iv] 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.

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

[vi] We hope to present the music of KISS sometime in the late 2020s. 

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

[viii] See earlier footnote.

[ix] In late 2019- early 2020, the World Health Organization says the COVID-19 strain of this Chinese-engineered POS disease was NOT transmissible between human beings…until it was.

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

[xxi] Late in the afternoon- and this is a good one- Newsmax ran a Chiron crawl that said, “The Biden administration, (i.e., the regime), is ordering construction on the border wall to begin again.”  Say what?  We cannot believe that mixed-up, befuddled, stumbling, bumbling, drooling old Joe Biden has reordered construction on the wall again.  Say what?

[xxii] Interestingly enough, while lunatic members among the House Democrats continue calling for an end of Israel, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi came out and blasted Hamas, the POS terrorist organization that needs to be eliminated from the face of the planet.  Wow.  Didn’t know “Mumbles” had it in her; still, once the AOC Suicide Squad begins tuning “Mumbles” up, she may very well reverse her statement.

[xxiii] President Donald J. Trump released a statement today in which he said he expects to see Liz Cheney become the next paid commentator on CNN or MSNBC.  She will be removed from office in the primary race next year in Wyoming.

[xxiv] Not sure when we will do the music of Jay-Z.

[xxv] We hope to do the music of the Go-Gos one day.  They were awesome.

[xxvi] We hope to do the Foo Fighters when we do Soundgarden, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Stone Temple Pilots, Pearl Jam, and maybe even Korn.

[xxvii] Not sure as to when we will do Carole King?  Perhaps in 20 years or so.

[xxviii] We definitely want to do the music of Todd Rundgren and Nazz as well as Aerosmith.

[xxix] We look forward to doing the music of Ike and Tina Turner one day. Maybe she will be included as a solo act.

[xxx] For the hell of it, we may be doing the music of the Monkees sooner- these guys deserve it.

  62. 2021 Tuesday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden became President on January 20, 2021, there have been 280,974 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 181,635 deaths.      
  63. 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: 3,761,724 confirmed cases, 62,357 confirmed deaths, and 2,005,443 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,275,365 confirmed cases, 35,849 confirmed deaths, and 1,859,688 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 33,329 confirmed cases, 488 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 418,071 confirmed cases, 5,642 confirmed deaths, and 203,349 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., American Samoa, yet another place  the Democrats will want to transform into a state after D.C., Puerto Rico, Guam, Virgin Islands, and the Northern Marianas Islands become states: they have 4 confirmed cases, 0 confirmed deaths, and 1 confirmed recoveries.[xiii]   
  64. 2021 Tuesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,000 confirmed cases, 6,378 confirmed deaths, and 831,738 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Kenya, the birthplace of the United States’ 44th ‘president’ Barack Hussein Obama: 163,976 cases of the virus, 2,928 confirmed deaths and 113,057 confirmed recoveries.[xiv]

In Solomon Islands Dollar, one greenback equals 7.9957 and in Somali Schilling, a buck equals 575.00 and in South African Rand, one dollar equals 13.99 of theirs.[xviii]      The reason as to WHY Wall Street had such a down cycle today is due to fears of oncoming rampant inflation thanks to the inabilities of the Biden regime to continue the Trump economic miracle.  The Bidenistas will bring about a new Great Depression- mark our words.  Businesses are raising prices at the highest rates since the 1980s.   In other news, cryptocurrencies value is higher than that of the U.S. dollar.
  66. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.107 per gallon, $2.877 in Florida, $3.833 in Hawaii, and $3.518 in Washington state.[xix]    Let’s look at one other location- Rhode Island: $2.894.  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- Bolivia: $2.045 per U.S. Gallon.[xx]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,274,850,063,528 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.
  67. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden Regime News I– As the Untermensch in Gaza Strip continue attacking Israel, enfeebled old Joe Biden finds himself under assault from both the right and left.  The right wants Israel supported and defended while the left wants to see Israel destroyed.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day stands with Israel to a member.  We say use the neutron bomb on the human scum inhabiting the Gaza Strip and then reclaim the land for Israel.  Meanwhile, economist Stephen Moore says that ‘Joe Biden’s unemployment benefits are keeping Americans out of the workforce.’  Amen.  Regarding the abandonment of Israel by the fraudulent Biden regime, President Donald J. Trump says that ‘Biden’s weakness is causing the massive surge in violence across the Middle East.’  Amen to that, too.   
  68. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden Regime News II– In other fascinating news, WOKE leftists are jumping on Andrew Yang for announcing his support for Israel.  And the left eats its own.   Elsewhere, Joe Biden is sending out ‘signed letters’ to recipients of COVID-19 relief checks.  Big whoop.  Stick the letters where the sun don’t shine Mr. (Bogus) President.   Finally, new rules coming out of the Biden regime would force doctors and other medical professionals to enable those suffering from gender dysphoria to undergo whatever treatments and irreversible processes they demand.  (Note- while I hate to say this, I am beginning to think that Joe Biden could very well be the Antichrist- Olaf).
  69. 2021 Tuesday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– Chile- a nation with a high rate of vaccination against the Chi-Vi is currently experiencing a tidal wave of new Bat Fu Yuk cases thanks to the Chi-Coms.   Meanwhile, a key officer at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services says that ‘annual booster shots may be required against the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, aka the China Virus, aka the Wuhan Virus, aka the ‘VID.  No thank you, we are not getting the vaccinations no matter what.  Elsewhere, analysis by the New York Times shows that the extremely overcautious Centers for Disease Control are sowing mass confusion over the danger of the Wuhan Flu.   Finally, Missouri and Tennessee are joining other states slashing Chi-Vi relief payments to their citizens.  It’s time for these people to return to work.  Now.
  70. 2021 Tuesday I: Foreign News / Overseas News– In Russia, at least seven are dead in a school shooting in that country.  The police have apprehended the suspect.   Next, the Siberian doctor who treated Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny has mysteriously disappeared.   Next, left-wing lawmakers in the U.S. (you know the scum) are screeching about ‘Israel’s brutality’ in defending itself from the 130 or so rockets fired into Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.  You know our feelings on the topic.  Elsewhere, Rep. Rob Wittman, R-VA 1st congressional district, says that Iran is trying to cause problems in the Straits of Hormuz by swamping U.S. Navy and Coast Guard assets with swift boats.’  We say, ‘sink these riffraff scumbags.’
  71. 2021 Tuesday J: Political News I– The Vatican warns U.S. bishops NOT to deny drooling old Joe Biden communion.  (Note- we know where Pope Francis stands which is why many Catholics are abandoning the church.  The man’s a Marxist and one cannot serve Marx and God simultaneously.  Olaf).   Next, the new White House deputy director for political strategy and outreach- Natalie Montelongo- says, ‘ICE does not have to exist.’  Next, a new poll says that almost two-thirds of Americans believe social media platforms are ripping our country asunder.   Elsewhere, Caitlyn Jenner, running for the governor’s job in California chose to golf on Election Day rather than to cast a vote for President Donald J. Trump.  Hence why we like John Cox.
  72. 2021 Tuesday K: Political News II– Rep. Steve Scalise, R-LA 1st congressional district, and other members of the GOP are calling for a new probe into the shootings that occurred at the baseball field a few years back when an enraged Bernie Sanders supporter shot several people and either seriously wounded or killed them before being shot and killed by Capitol Hill Police officers.  After all, a week or two ago, FBI Director Chris Wray announced the verdict of ‘suicide by cop.’  Wow.
  73. 2021 Tuesday L: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– In Georgia, prosecutors are going to seek the death penalty against the sex-addicted POS who shot up a pair of Asian massage (brothel) parlors killing eight people, six of whom were Asian women whom the left then leapt atop as a symbol of anti-Asian hate ginned up by the China Virus.   Good.  Convict and execute that punk.  Next, in related legal news, the reason for the divorce between Bill and Melinda Gates is because back in 2019, Melinda was upset that hubby Bill was too close to Jeffrey Epstein, the pervert and pedophile.  We’d throw the guy out, too.  Elsewhere, in other legal news, New York state is celebrating a big victory as a court in the Empire State has thrown out the bankruptcy filings by the National Rifle Association.  Finally, trainer Bob Baffert of the Kentucky Derby winner, Medina Spirit, claims that an ointment he used on the horse may have caused its ‘positive’ for doping.  The investigation continues.
  74. 2021 Tuesday M: Miscellaneous News I– Now that Great Britain is going to require photo IDs to vote, President Donald J. Trump points out the obvious that so, too, should the United States.  Of course, to leftists, photo IDs are RACIST.  Speaking of the commander-in-chief, he is supporting Glenn Youngkin, the GOP candidate for Virginia governor, in the upcoming election.   Another stalwart candidate in upstate New York- Sheriff Mike Carpinelli- is putting his hat into the ring to replace that angry moron, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov.  We hope he can beat that POS.   Elsewhere, the ex-Capitol Hill Police Chief Steven Sund defended his performance on January 06, 2021, the day of the largest FALSE FLAG POLITICAL OPERATION IN THE HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES and said he feared the ‘appearance of a coup d’ êtat.’   Finally, Wisconsin is considering a law making it mandatory to play the National Anthem in every public venue.
  75. 2021 Tuesday N: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been the BORDER CZAR now for 49 days and has yet to take her butt down to the southern border.  What the hell is up with that?
  76. 2021 Tuesday O: Environmental News I– Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom, DS-CA, has extended the drought declaration to 41 counties.  It is sad that the state continues allowing fresh water to flow out to the Pacific Ocean rather than confining it behind the walls of new dams.   Meanwhile, the feds have approved the building of the first offshore wind farms.  Elsewhere, in a blow to the Green Meanies, a new report says that temperatures so far in 2021 are far lower than they have been in recent years.  Not good for idiots such as the ‘Squad’ and their push for the Green New Deal.  A win for us.
  77. 2021 Tuesday P: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Stick around for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1658 with a $402 million jackpot on the line.  Here are the numbers: 07, 08, 20, 36, 39 and Mega 22.  Out of 163,472 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $10,622 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys’ third album, “Surfer Girl,” released on September 16, 1963, was their greatest to date yet spawning numerous hits.  The band’s lineup was the same- Brian Wilson (bass, piano, and vocals), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Carl Wilson (lead guitar and vocals), Mike Love (vocals), and David Marks (rhythm guitar and vocals)- but Marks would be leaving soon.  The group knocked out a load of hits on this record- the title track to be sure but also “Catch a Wave,” “Little Deuce Coupe,” “In My Room,” and “Hawaii.”  Brian Wilson was having to write at a much more furious pace what with the emphasis being on hits.  Father Murray Wilson, the group’s manager, kept them on a tight schedule of writing, recording, and performing, raking in as much money as was humanly possible and then some.  Great music to be sure, music we hope you will check out and enjoy because the Beach Boys are one of the all-time great American groups to be sure.

107. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, APRIL 17, 2022

Friends, we understand that the left can say whatever they want about whomever they want. However, they persecute us for making light of all manner of things, lampooning bigwig politicians, or criticizing drastic social changes. Well, we will do our best to clean things up and put our critics at ease. What the hell. We do not seek to offend our readers (or those claiming to be readers); no, we seek to enlighten, elucidate, and educate our readership in the pursuit of the truth and the interaction of various opinions. We hope you seek the same with us instead of being woke crybabies.

Douamont.  Fighting is fierce and ongoing.   Elsewhere, heavy fighting between German colonial troops and their Askaris and a South African force erupts around the village of Kondona Irangi.  The Allies have had a hell of a time getting the Germans into a fixed fight and after the Kaiser’s troops inflict heavy losses on their opponents, they melt off into the terrain.
  20. 1917 Tuesday: A bill in Congress to establish Daylight Saving Time suffered a defeat; however, lawmakers managed to pass it a few months later.   Elsewhere, during World War I, British and Egyptian troops begin assaulting Ottoman Turk positions in and around Gaza.  The fight to liberate Palestine from the Turks is underway.

  27. 1944 Monday: The Red Army continues driving Axis troops out of the western Ukraine.  One offensive after another prevents the German, Hungarian, Rumanian, and other allied Axis troops from being able to catch their breath and make a stand.  This is not good for the Axis, but they will continue fighting until the bitter end.

  32. 1960 Sunday: American Samoa sets up a constitutional government.
  33. 1961 Monday: Some 1,500 CIA-trained Cuban exiles launched the disastrous Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba with which to topple communist thug dictator, Fidel Castro- or so the plan went- on this date.  However, President John F. Kennedy’s plan went awry from the start as Castro’s forces crushed the incursion by the third day.  The CIA was going to provide the freedom fighters with air cover but then President Kennedy and his brother, U.S. Attorney General Robert F. “Bobby” Kennedy got cold feet and left them to their demise.

  45. 2003 Thursday: U.S. forces get lucky in Iraq as they scoop up one of deposed dictator Saddam Hussein’s half-brothers, Barzan Ibrahim Hassan al-Tikriti, the leader of Iraq’s intelligence-gathering agency, the Mukhabarat.  Off he goes to a black site. 
  46. 2004 Saturday: Once again, the Israelis get their man: Hamas leader and thug- Abdel Aziz Ali Abdul Majid al-Rantisi, the famed “Lion of Palestine” embarks on a journey to meet with Muhammad.  An Israeli missile strike blows the piece of desert scum to bits.  Congratulations, Israel.  Elsewhere, Spain swears in its new socialist leader, Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, on this date. 
  47. 2005 Sunday: Indonesians across the country have been participating in anti-Israel and anti-American protests, mostly due to the U.S. invasion of Iraq and Israel, well, Muslim nations are always angry with Israel.  It is what it is.
  48. 2006 Monday: A Palestinian POS- a member of Islamic Jihad- killed 11 people and wounded loads of others when he detonated a bomb in the old bus station in Tel Aviv.  That’s the so-called ‘religion of peace’ for you.  A spokesperson for Hamas called it ‘an act of self-defense.’
  49. 2007 Tuesday: U.S. military deaths in Iraq have now surpassed 3,300 what with at least 58 being killed so far this month.  Not good.  Iraq says we killed three of their law enforcement officers today while civilians claim the U.S. fires on random families as they go about their daily lives.  We doubt this.
  50. 2008 Thursday: Chairman Lee Hung-Kee of the Samsung Group finds himself under indictment as on tax evasion and breach of trust.  Say it ain’t so.
  51. 2009 Friday: The Obama administration releases four memos from his predecessor President George W. Bush’s administration outlining torture of detained terrorist suspects.  President Obama promises no prosecutions for CIA agents which makes the leftists who voted for him thinking they were going to get some payback even more angry.   Meanwhile, a new study hits the news cycle claiming that the victims of most airstrikes in Iraq are ‘women and children.’  Somehow, we knew this would be the case…sounds like Hamas talking.
  52. 2010 Saturday: Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, calls for the expulsion of the United States from the international nuclear system because their religion prohibits the use of nuclear weapons, and the Obama administration is saying hateful stuff about their intentions.
  53. 2011 Sunday: The Mid-April 2011 southern United States tornado outbreak results in over 30 deaths; North Carolina is the state worst affected.  Elsewhere, law enforcement authorities in Beijing go on a rampage, scooping up underground Protestant church members and whisking them off to holding pens.  So much for freedom of religion.  Oh, wait- the Chinese communists don’t have ‘freedom of religion.’ 
  54. 2012 Tuesday: Senior members of the U.S. government admit that during the 6th Summit of the Americas that 11 U.S. Secret Service agents and possibly some military personnel were schlepping as many as 20 hos while in country in Colombia protecting President Barack Obama and other diplomats.
  55. 2013 Wednesday: In the U.S., a centerpiece proposal on background checks aimed at tightening gun control, fails in a Senate vote.  Elsewhere, in North Korea, border authorities are preventing South Koreans from supplying their fellow countrymen inside the now-shuttered Kaesong industrial zone.  The North Koreans want their apologies after yesterday’s burning of North Korea’s leaders in Seoul.
  56. 2014 Thursday: NASA’s Kepler space telescope confirms the discovery of the first Earth-sized planet in the habitable zone of another star.  Elsewhere, following the ferry disaster off South Korea, Korean navy divers continue searching for 290 people who still are missing.  What a mess.  Meanwhile, the Ukrainian military is angry over the previous day’s events what with the loss of six armored personnel carriers to ‘pro-Russian mobs.’  The unit that lost its vehicles is disbanded and its members charged with crimes of aiding and abetting the Russians.
  57. 2015 Friday: Russian leader Vladimir Putin accuses the Obama regime of ‘destabilizing the Ukraine’ by sending U.S. paratroopers to train Ukraine’s reserve military forces.  Sadly, even with a ceasefire agreement between Ukraine and ‘separatist rebels’ (who are really Russian and Chechen special forces), fighting continues unabated.  Elsewhere, as fighting continues in Iraq’s Anbar Province as ISIS continues drawing closer to Ramadi, civilians begin fleeing the city. 
  58. 2016 Sunday: Heavy fighting continues around the Afghan city of Kunduz.  The Taliban are trying to encircle the city so they can cut it off from the outside, but Afghan government forces are having none of it.  They are giving as good as they get.  Taliban infiltrators are trying to penetrate government lines so as to set off attacks from within the city itself.
  59. 2017 Monday: The Chinese continue infringing upon the borders of India by holding first-ever military drills with Nepal.  Communists are like syphilis as they continue to spread and the only thing that can stop them is cutting them off the world body.  Meanwhile, Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli holding pens are on a hunger strike, protesting their food rations and quality.  Stop causing trouble and you can return home.
  60. 2018 Tuesday: Disgraced former FBI Director James Comey, detested by both Democrats and Republicans, publishes his (comic) book, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership.”  Big whoop.  It sinks almost as soon as it hits the bookstores.   Elsewhere, the United States government releases the names of Japanese military and medical personnel who took part in the infamous activities of Unit 731.  This unit conducted medical experiments that rivaled the cruelty of ones conducted by their Nazi allies during World War II.  When the war ended, the U.S. scooped up 3,607 of the unit’s members and in exchange for not prosecuting them for war crimes also scooped up all their scientific information (as most likely did the Soviets).  It was horrible times back then.
  61. 2019 Wednesday: After an 18-year-old female obsessed with the Columbine massacre begins making threats, schools in Denver, Colorado, undergo closure until police locate her dead body.  Elsewhere, Ukrainian security agents apprehend a Russian hit squad responsible for slaying a Ukrainian politician and were planning additional attacks in their country at the behest of Vladimir Putin.
  62. 2020 Friday: Although there is positivity as to how the United States is contending with the Chinese lab-engineered COVID-19 pandemic sweeping the world, it is still taking its toll.  At the time of this posting, the United States acknowledges 661,712 confirmed cases of the Kung Flu what with 33,049 confirmed deaths but 58,360 confirmed recoveries which is amazing.  Around the globe, there are 2,224,426 confirmed cases of this suspect disease, 153,177 confirmed deaths but 565,957 confirmed recoveries which is truly grand.   China- get this- is beginning to tell the truth but is still lying as far as many of us believe. They have updated their total confirmed case number to 88,273 what with 4,632 confirmed deaths and 82,487 confirmed recoveries.  However, everyone understands that communist nations always LIE, that they do everything possible to cover up disasters, which is precisely what the People’s Republic of China is doing.  As for the Stock Market, the DOW Jones Industrial Average closed at 24,242.49, UP 704.81 (2.99%); the NASDAQ closed at 8,650.14, UP 117.78 (1.38%); and the S & P closed at 2,874.56, UP 75.01 (2.68%).   Some states around the country are beginning to undergo reopening procedures but hardcore Democrat-controlled states continue extending their mitigation efforts in the hopes of tanking the economy if they can.  We believe, however, that these Democrat leaders are going to pay a horrendous price in the next 2-3 election cycles.  Keep it up!
  63. 2021 Saturday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 140,379,953 confirmed cases, +1,105,338, 3,007,708  confirmed deaths, +18,118, and 79,972,688 confirmed recoveries, +613,470.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,824,596 confirmed cases, UP 142,550 from yesterday’s reporting, 572,155 confirmed deaths, UP 1,624, and 119,025,387 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.[vii]  In other COVID-19, a recent report says that Regeneron’s Chi-Vi cocktail can help prevent COVID-19 infections.
  64. 2021 Saturday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 246,196 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  Meanwhile, people are questioning WHY if everyone is getting their shots why the hell people must continue wearing masks like that dimwitted little troll, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci continues telling us to do.  WTF is up with that?  
  65. 2021 Saturday B: COVID-19 STATISTICS in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,714,406 confirmed cases, 60,883 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,162,067 confirmed cases, 34,404 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,510 confirmed cases, 473 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 385,695 confirmed cases, 5,427 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Connecticut, the home of two of the absolute worst senators in U.S. history- lying Dick Blumenthal and dimwit Chris Murphy: they have 329,062 confirmed cases, 7,995 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[viii] 
  66. 2021 Saturday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 836,936 confirmed cases, 6,331 confirmed deaths, and 828,235 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Tunisia, the original flashpoint for the Arab Spring: 281,777 cases of the virus, 9,639 confirmed deaths and 232,643 confirmed recoveries.[ix]  
  67. 2021 Saturday D: U.S. DOLLAR CONVERSIONS– Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.52 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.91.     In Guinean Franc, one greenback equals 9,947.00 and in Guyana Dollar, a buck equals 207.98.[x]
  68. 2021 Saturday E: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE FOUR STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.963 per gallon, $2.829 in Florida, $3.755 in Hawaii, and $3.365 in Washington state.[xi]    Let’s look at one other location- Indiana: $2.847.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,182,529,180,837 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xii]
  69. 2021 Saturday F: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND I– Esteemed legal scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz blasted Democrats by saying ‘it would be a disaster to add additional justices to the U.S. Supreme Court’ which Democrats now want to do.  They claim that President Donald J. Trump and then-Senate Majority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell ‘got away with stealing two Supreme Court seats, the one Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch now holds as well as the one Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett now holds.’  According to Congressman Jerrold “Dough Boy” Nadler, DS-NY 10th congressional district, and Senator Ed Markey, DS-MA, both far-left losers claim both those seats belong to the Democrats, so they believe the only thing to do is to expand the number of justices on the court.  Wow.   Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis, R-NY 11th congressional district, slams the Democrats over their court-packing scheme, saying it’s the worst thing she has seen since coming to Congress.
  70. 2021 Saturday G: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND II– Corey Lewandowski told Newsmax TV that the Chi-Coms pose a greater danger to the United States than do the Russians.  We concur.  Congressman Dan Bishop, R-NC 9th congressional district, told Newsmax TV that the ‘Russian bounty story,’ the one the Fake News media and liberal Democrats hammered President Donald J. Trump with for about half a year last year, a story we now know to be bogus,[xiii] demonstrates the hypocrisy of both the liberal media and of Joe Biden.  They lie through their teeth and then sweep it under the rug. 
  71. 2021 Saturday H: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND III– Federal officials reverse the fetal tissue research ban so scientists can once again use the remains of the aborted in their medical studies.  How nice.  Meanwhile, U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland erased Trump-era limits on consent decrees on the nation’s police agencies.  Once again, the left wants to politicize every police department as they are attempting to do with every other branch of the federal government.   Elsewhere, former House speaker and BIG LOSER John Boehner stands to rake in $20 million with his pro-pot and anti-GOP endeavors.  What a POS.  Next, Roger Stone is being sued for back taxes.  Finally, for some inexplicable reasons, following GOP leadership pushing back against the formation of an America First Caucus in the House, it seemingly now is not going to happen.  That sucks.  Who did it?  Kevin McCarthy?  Steve Scalise?  That skank, Liz Cheney?  They all need to go.  
  72. 2021 Saturday I: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND IV– Gary Gensler took the oath of office today to become the next head of the Securities and Exchange Commission.   Moving on, U.S. Secretary of the Interior Debra Haaland, the first Norwegian-Native American to hold the position has erased 12 President Donald J. Trump climate policies.  Bet you feel good, Madam Secretary.
  73. 2021 Saturday J: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS– The Iranians say they know who messed up their Natanz nuclear facility, but the dirty dog somehow evaded their dragnet and escaped the country.  Hmmm.  They named this person as 43-year-old Reza Karimi, a person whom they claim somehow committed a dastardly act of sabotage and then skipped the country hours before the computers were trashed.  They have gone to Interpol seeking his immediate arrest and extradition back to the glorious Islamic Republic of Iran.  We hope he stays safe.  Elsewhere, incredibly stupid Alexei Navalny, Vladimir Putin’s Number One Critic, a person poisoned by Putin’s thugs, who then found a way to get to Germany for treatment, and then returned to the Motherland.  Once there, he was tried and sent to prison for bogus crimes and is now being tortured and force-fed since he is on a hunger protest.  Why did you return to Russia?   Finally, Prince Philip underwent burial today.  The Royal Family was there, and Meghan Markle sent a wreath and a hand-written card.  Awesome.
  74. 2021 Saturday K: SUPER LOTTO AND POWERBALL DRAWINGS– first, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3552 with a $38 million on the line: 02, 07, 12, 29, 44, and Mega 03.  Out of 122,366 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $10,574 apiece.  Here are the four winners: (1) Chevron, Folsom, CA 95630 (2) Chevron, Corona, CA 92879 (3) 7-11, San Diego, CA 92128 and (4) Ralphs, San Diego, CA 92127.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #838 with a prize of $79 million on the line: 10, 21, 26, 41, 49, and Powerball 25.  Out of 47,609 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $13,607 apiece.
  75. 2022 Sunday: Friends, we understand that the left can say whatever they want about whomever they want.  However, they persecute us for making light of all manner of things, lampooning bigwig politicians, or criticizing drastic social changes.   Well, we will do our best to clean things up and put our critics at ease.  What the hell.  We do not seek to offend our readers (or those claiming to be readers); no, we seek to enlighten, elucidate, and educate our readership in the pursuit of the truth and the interaction of various opinions.  We hope you seek the same with us instead of being woke crybabies.

[i] We began presenting the music of the Mothers of Invention and of Frank Zappa beginning on Monday, 21-January-2013 and concluded the presentation on Monday, 13-May-2013.  Please seek them out, we believe you will enjoy the music of this famed man and his band.

[ii] 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.

[iii] Not sure when we will offer the music of the Jan Hammer Group, but you can bet we will one day to be sure.

[iv] As always, our main source is “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, Da Capo Press, 2004.

[v] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.

[vi] We began promoting the music of Mountain beginning on Friday, 14-December-2012 through Sunday, 20-January-2013.  This also included West, Bruce & Laing but sadly, we overlooked Leslie West’s solo career so please stay tuned for his discography sometime in the next 8-12 years.

[vii] Bing has returned to reporting update numbers (well, mostly).  Here is the link: (1) covid-19 u.s. and global statistics – Bing

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

[ix] We obtain our statistics for the coronavirus from: (1) covid-19 u.s. and global statistics – Bing

[x] (1) Currency Converter – Bing See this site for currency conversions.

[xi] AAA Gas Prices– See this site for nationwide daily gasoline averages.

[xii] U.S. National Debt Clock : Real Time (usdebtclock.org) See this site for the U.S. National Debt Clock.

[xiii] We knew it was bogus back then and mentioned it in numerous posts.  First, why would the Russians do something such as this when if they had said the Iranians did it, it would have been much more believable.  We would not have issues with the Russians today if the Democrats did not use them for their punching bag.  Russia did this, Russia did that, wah, wah, wah.  We don’t believe our two countries should be at odds with one another because all it’s doing is to push the Russians deeper into the Chi-Com camp.  No, we should try to have a friendly relationship with Moscow.  How about it, Joe?

  62. 2017 Thursday: Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto cancels a meeting with President Donald J. Trump that was going to occur next week, citing the American president’s promise of building a wall between the two countries so the U.S. can stop the mass invasion from which, Mexico’s corrupt leaders profit in a variety of ways.  In response, President Trump calls for a 20-percent tariff on ALL GOODS flowing north from Mexico.
  63. 2018 Friday: Although creators of cryptocurrency tell us ‘how safe it is,’ hackers manage to steal $535 million of NEM cryptocurrency from the Japanese exchange Coin Check.    
  64. 2019 Saturday: In order to protect their satrap in Venezuela- Nicolas Maduro- the Russians begin flying in private military contractors to provide security for the slow-witted Venezuelan dictator.  This leads the U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in a speech before the United Nations for the world’s countries to make their stance known whether they support the illegitimate government in Caracas or not.  The U.S. does not but the Russians, Chi-Coms, Cuba, and other Third World hellholes do.  Concurrently, the Bank of England prohibits the Maduro government from withdrawing more than a billion in gold reserves until the dispute between Maduro and Juan Guaidó as to whom won the election is resolved.
  65. 2020 Sunday:  Afghan government forces backed up by Coalition forces have had enough of the ongoing Taliban violence and launches operations against Taliban forces across nine provinces.  The body toll of the Islamists for the day is about 51 with no sign that Afghan troops going to give them an inch.  Meanwhile in Syria, Syrian government forces are cleaning out jihadists and other terrorists in Idlib Province as the government makes a concerted push to reclaim towns and villages from remaining rebels.   Elsewhere, someone gets ahold of an unreleased portion of the manuscript of former National Security Adviser John Bolton’s upcoming book, “The Room Where It Happened.”  In the unauthorized portion, Bolton says ‘Trump told him that unfreezing aid to Ukraine hinged on whether the government of Volodymyr Zelensky would provide dirt on ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden to the administration.
  66. 2021 Tuesday: As Senator Patrick Leahy, D-VT, swears in U.S. senators for the upcoming ‘impeachment trial of former President Donald J. Trump,’ West Virginia Democrat Senator Joe Manchin is joined by Arizona Democrat Senator Kyrsten Sinema vow NOT to vote to overthrow the filibuster as knuckle-dragging Senate “Majority Leader” Chuck Schumer, D-NY, seeks to do.  Speaking of the upcoming second impeachment of former President Donald J. Trump, the Senate holds a vote on whether to impeach or not to impeach the 45th president.  By a vote of 55-45 the Senate votes to move ahead with five of those voting in favor to hold the trial are Republicans: Senators Pat Toomey, Mitt Romney, Susan Murkowski, Ben Sasse, and Susan Collins, respectfully of Pennsylvania, Utah, Alaska, Nebraska, and Maine.  Losers.
  67. 2021 Tuesday A: Speaking of impeachment, noted legal scholar, professor, and trial attorney Alan Dershowitz says that ‘if the chief justice does not preside at the trial, it is BOGUS, that it’s little more than political theater.’  The famed jurist quoted Abraham Lincoln’s famous words regarding the conquered South after the Civil War: ‘with malice towards none and with charity for all,’ noting that the Democrats are doing the exact opposite in their treatment of the former president, his supporters, and those who disagree with what the Democrats are doing.  Regarding the sham impeachment, President Trump is adding another attorney from South Carolina to his defense team- former federal prosecutor Deborah Barbier to his bevy of lawyers. 
  68. 2021 Tuesday B: Subsequently- regarding the upcoming impeachment trial of President Trump, 29 Republican senators will oppose it to their utmost.  Mark Halperin- questions whether Mitch McConnell is reading accurately the mood of the GOP and is now wavering on earlier comments that he would ‘vote to convict Mr. Trump.’  “Cocaine Mitch” is one of the biggest snakes in the U.S. Senate and although he has done some good things, he is little more than an a**-kissing POS of the Democrats.  Trump helped him win HIS election and much like the scorpion on the back of the frog crossing the river, Senate MINORITY Leader McConnell stabbed him in the back.  Kentucky- recall this scumbag NOW.  If you can.
  69. 2021 Tuesday C: Speaking of “Cocaine Mitch,” “CM” and Senate ‘Majority Leader’ Chuck Schumer have arrived at a power-sharing deal that will see all committees with equal numbers of Republicans and Democrats but with Democrats serving as the chairmen-and-women.   Speaking of losers, ‘President’ Joe Biden says, “The impeachment trial must go on,” mumbling whatever his earpiece tells him to say such as ‘if the trial does NOT go forward, it could damage the nation.’  Meanwhile, former President Donald J. Trump has opened an Office of the Former President in Florida, an office with which, he will find qualified conservative candidates to primary RINO scumbags in upcoming elections.  Yesterday, he pledged his full-fledged support to Sarah Huckabee Sanders to run for governor of Arkansas in 2022.  Visit www.45office.com. Contact Mr. Trump there.  In other possible election news, many believe Ohio Republican Congressman Jim Jordan will seek Senator Rob Portman’s seat in 2022 as will Georgia Congressman Doug Collins the seat of pro-China RINO Governor Brian Kemp.  We expect both to win.
  70. 2021 Tuesday D: Kevin McCarthy mocks ‘President’ Joe Biden’s calls for ‘unity.’  The ‘46th president mumbles what his handlers tell him to say then does as they tell him to do which is NOT UNITY.   Google and Microsoft are suspending donations to all Republicans who did not accept the results of the fraudulent 2020 Presidential Election.  Elsewhere, the Goya Foods Board of Directors censures CEO Robert Unanue over his unabashed support of President Donald J. Trump.  In other ‘President’ Biden news, his press secretary- Jen Psaki- does not seem to know a great deal.  When asked by reporters as to WHY the ‘Biden administration’ is not going to stay tough on preventing the Chi-Coms from penetrating the U.S. power grid, she had no answers just like she had no answers regarding Antifa and their continued running amok around the country.  Speaking of Antifa, Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler had to pepper spray a POS Antifa punk for getting in his face in a restaurant.  Good for you.
  71. 2021 Tuesday E: Antifa-infiltrated Capitol Hill protesters continue flaunting their successes at the storming of Capitol Hill on January 6.  Speaking of the event, the woman who ran off with Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s laptop may face a permanent Internet ban once she is out of legal jeopardy.   Speaking of Internet and social media bans, Twitter removes- permanently- the account of My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell’s account yet after ‘removing the account,’ it began retweeting all manner of left-wing messages so how does one lose their account to then have some other entity begin using it?  Evil.  Meanwhile, Florida Democrat Congresswoman Stephanie Murray has a bill that will PROHIBIT anyone with ideas the ruling Democrats don’t like- such as belief the 2020 Presidential Election was full of fraud or in QAnon which does not sound all that far-fetched from holding any kind of elective office or work in government at any level.  Wow.
  72. 2021 Tuesday F: A recent Gallup Poll shows that 89-percent of American citizens are dissatisfied with the country.  Go figure: stolen elections, fake news media, social media bans, censorship, harsh restrictions, lockdowns, and Antifa and BLM mobs running amok in the streets, who the hell wouldn’t be?  Meanwhile the head of the Anti-Defamation League wants Twitter to ban the Grand Ayatollah Khamenei for constantly tweeting he wants to kill Jews and erase Israel from the face of the planet.   Elsewhere, Russia says ‘vigorous efforts needed to extend Russia-U.S. New Start arms control treaty.’  Also, as the ‘Biden administration’ presses Russia on releasing Alexei Navalny and imprisoned protesters basically puts it red fist in ‘President Biden’s’ face and brushes the senile fool off.   Finally, former Wisconsin Republican Governor Scott Walker labels the People’s Republic of China as the “New Evil Empire” due to their appalling human rights record.
  73. 2021 Tuesday G: Alleged Chi-Com spy and honeypot participant Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell says, “The FBI cleared me of any hint of conspiring with the Chi-Coms against my country.’  Bulls**t, no one has cleared you of anything.  In other political news, people are championing Fox News Channel’s chief meteorologist Janice Dean as a potential GOP candidate for the governor of New York seeing as how she is immensely popular and Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo killed both her father-and-mother-in-law by putting COVID-19-infected patients into their rest home.  Yikes.  “Killer Cuomo” had better watch out…
  74. 2021 Tuesday H: The Vatican clears retired U.S. Bishop Joseph Hart of seven abuse charges.  Hart served the church in Cheyanne, Wyoming.  Next, we learn the new iPhone can screw up pacemakers and cause heart attacks.  Love that Chi-Com technology.   Next, we learn that the TSA now has been politicized as Jennifer Kerns of All-American Radio told Newsmax TV: TSA officials are blocking Global Entry of persons who served in the former Trump administration.  WTF!   Elsewhere, in a 78-22 vote in the U.S. Senate, Anthony Blinken is confirmed as the next U.S. Secretary of State even though the Chi-Coms have dumped loads of cash- tens of millions of dollars- into his back pocket.  His predecessor, Acting U.S. Secretary of State Daniel Bennett Smith stepped down from office on this date.[vi]  Also, Janet Yellen takes the oath of office which makes her the official U.S. Treasury Secretary.     In other news, 200 House Republicans vote to uphold the Hyde Amendment which prohibits the use of taxpayer dollars to fund the Pro-Death Movement.
  75. 2021 Tuesday I: In other shameful news, communist Jane Fonda is set to receive the Golden Globes Cecil B. DeMille Award.  Big whoop.  Meanwhile, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki- not wearing a mask and repeatedly wiping her nose with her bare hand- denies that her boss, ‘President’ Joe Biden ever labeled Donald Trump’s travel ban for COVID-19 as xenophobic or racist.  Uh, but he did, Jen!  In another incident of plagiarism, ‘President’ Joe Biden says he will ‘use the military to step up deliveries of the Chi-Vi vaccine.’  Your predecessor already set this in motion.   Also, regarding the Chi-Vi, Dr. Anthony Fauci- the highest-paid putz in the federal government- says he was disturbed by his former boss’ comments on the value of bleach and other disease-killing chemicals.  He maintains the 45th president was talking about ingesting such substances; however, if you listen to the tape, the president was discussing the therapeutic effects of such items and it’s too bad we could not find something that could do the same for the human body.    Finally, Kayleigh McEnany is set to return to Fox News Channel but now, that job offer is on hold.
  76. 2021 Tuesday J: DAY SEVEN OF THE BIDEN REGIME- stick around to discover what is going on across the country…well, you will all want to know this: the Fake News Media has now gone down the rabbit hole what with the Fresh Start program in which, much like George Orwell wrote in his classic book, “1984,” will rewrite ALL past news stories to remove unfavorable news about Democrats and will rehabilitate their images and history of doings.  ‘President’ Joe Biden and ‘Vice President’ Kamala Harris definitely need much rehabilitation because both put loads of minorities into prison with their racist criminal justice policies or their enforcement of those policies.   Meanwhile, far-left former Barack Hussein Obama first AG Eric Holder urges his fellow Democrats to STACK THE U.S. SUPREME COURT NOW.  And you honestly believe these people LOVE the United States of America as founded.
  77. 2021 Tuesday K: Governor Gavin Newsom of California is scrambling to reopen California as the move to recall the little POS now has more than 1.2 million signatures.  The problem for him is that very few liked him from the start nor are they in line with his harsh lockdowns and restrictions so when we hit 1.5 million signatures, the man is going to lose office like Gray Davis- another Democrat- did back in 2003 and citizens of the state liked him far more than the current bozo ruining the state.  (PS- he’s Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s nephew- that says so much).  Elsewhere, New Mexico- a state that threw in with “Pro-China Joe” Biden- is now going to feel the brunt of the ‘46th president’s’ energy policies losing thousands of jobs as the Green New Deal politics come to the fore.  Time to find ‘Republican judges’ and do to the Democratic-Socialists what they always do to Republican administrations and that is to hammer, hammer, hammer them with injunction after injunction after injunction.  We can do it so let’s do it!  Texas is beginning to do it NOW.
  78. 2021 Tuesday L: ‘President’ Joe Biden orders an end to publicly-funded private prisons.  Yet another XO, folks, 20 by our count.  Meanwhile, Senate ‘Majority Leader’ Charles “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says the Dems may advance a COVID-19 Relief Bill sans any GOP participation.  NOTE- whatever relief they give the American people, the American people will have to pay income taxes on whatever amount it is.  Elsewhere, former Democrat Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii labels ‘John Brennan and Adam Schiff as domestic enemies of the United States.  Next, a federal judge hammers ‘President’ Joe Biden’s XO putting all deportations on hold for 100 days.  About flipping time, federal judges, how about an injunction to overturn the halt to the Keystone XL Pipeline.  Finally, “Big Brother Joe” Biden vows to fight systemic racism in the country, racism that he and his former boss, Barack Hussein Obama had eight flipping years to fix and didn’t.  Of course, systemic racism does not exist, why do millions of people seek to come to our country?  Because it’s a wonderful place.
  79. 2021 Tuesday M: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 100,032,461 confirmed cases, +445,377, 2,149,818, confirmed deaths, +13,259, and 55,239,856 confirmed recoveries, +319,710.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 25,604,046 confirmed cases, up 229,745 from yesterday’s reporting, 427,069 confirmed deaths, UP 3,458, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP 36,070.
  80. 2021 Tuesday N: 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: 3,216,365 confirmed cases, 37,577 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,903 confirmed cases, 401 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 306,499 confirmed cases, 4,221 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: District of Columbia: currently, they have 35,700 confirmed cases, 888 confirmed deaths, but NO mention confirmed recoveries- come on, Mayor Bowser, share the figures.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 613,340 confirmed cases, 4,498 confirmed deaths, and 534,485 confirmed recoveries. 
  81. 2021 Tuesday O:  THE BIDEN AGENDA IS DESTROYING THE STOCK MARKET.  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,937.504 DOWN 22.96 points (-0.74%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,626.07, DOWN 9.93 points (-0.73%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,849.62, DOWN 5.74 points (-0.15%).  The price of GOLD is $1,849.60 per troy oz., -1.10 (-0.06%) while the price of SILVER is $25.50 per troy ounce, -0.038 (-0.15%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,107.20 per troy oz, -0.20 (-0.02%) while the price of COPPER is $3.62 per pound, +0.002 (+0.06%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,325.00 per troy oz, -21.90 (-0.93%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.17 per barrel, +0.16 (+0.30%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Iranian Rial equals 42,000.00 (same as last week).  That’s what a terrorism-based economy gets you.  Next, here is the conversion for one U.S. dollar and Bitcoin: 0.000031.  In other economic news, Target is giving all hourly workers a bonus of $500.  Don’t forget- you will pay taxes on this money…
  82. 2021 Tuesday P: ‘President’ Joe Biden’s Department of Justice ends the ‘zero tolerance’ rule for illegal aliens seeking to storm the country.   Elsewhere, after writing a BS story in the New Yorker Magazine, the company had to return the National Magazine Award.  One leftwing site after another lies, steals other people’s works, and spreads propaganda, yet they remain open while leftists pursue bloggers like us.  Meanwhile, a tornado touched down in Alabama killing one person and injuring at least 17 others.   Next, the U.S. is seriously considering forcing everyone who wants to board an airliner to take the Chi-Vi test, you know, the nasal swab for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Finally, the man given the nod to take John Robert’s place in the second impeachment trial of former President Donald J. Trump- Vermont Democrat Senator Patrick “Loose Lips” Leahy- suddenly is carted off to the hospital for an unspecified illness.  Crabs?
  83. 2021 Tuesday Q: Here are the numbers for the Mega Millions Draw #1628: 29, 49, 56, 66, 67, and Mega 24.  Out of 76,613 winning tickets, the highest winners in California were three people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $7,078 apiece.
  84. 2022 Wednesday: You know the drill…

ENDNOTES:

[i] We began promoting the music of the greatest British blues rock band, the Climax Blues Band, beginning on Monday, 16-September-2019 through Sunday, 27-October-2019.  This included the solo efforts of Pete Haycock and Colin Cooper.  We hope you will check them out and add them to your collection.

[ii] We are not sure when we will begin offering albums by the Little River Band as that could be another 5-10 years from now but one day, we most surely will because they are one of the world’s greatest bands.  Seeing them live in the 1970s was a mind-altering experience, my friends.

[iii] Not sure when we will promote the music of Van Halen but when we do, we will also present the music of Sammy Hagar so please stay tuned.

[iv] 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.

  45. 2012 Thursday: The camera and film company that started it all—Kodak—filed for bankruptcy protection.  
  46. 2013 Saturday: NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity finds calcium deposits on the Red Planet like what happens on Earth when water circulates through cracks and fissures in the surface.  Elsewhere, in Riverdale, N.Y., Steve Knight—former keyboardist with the East Coast hard rock band, Mountain[viii], lost his battle with Parkinson’s Disease on this date; he was just 77.
  47. 2014 Sunday: At the 20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, “American Hustle” takes top picture honors while actors Matthew McConaughey and Cate Blanchett take Outstanding Performance Awards.
  48. 2015 Monday: English actress Anna Kirkbride dies of breast cancer at age 60.  Meanwhile, in Yemen, battles between Iranian-backed Houthi rebels and government forces result in nine dead and more than 160 injured in the capital city of Sana’a.
  49. 2016 Tuesday: At a rally in Ames, Iowa, former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin officially endorses Donald J. Trump for president of the United States.  Meanwhile, as the war continues to rage in Syria, the government of Bashar al-Assad reports the deaths of far too many Syrian army troops in the fight against ISIS.  Speaking of the terrorist criminal organization, ISIS announces the death of its beloved ‘Jihadi John,’ blown up in an airstrike back in November.
  50. 2017 Thursday: Mexico extradites drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman to the United States on this date to face justice.  Elsewhere, in Palmyra, Syria, ISIS scum behead 12 captives.  Meanwhile, President-elect Donald J. Trump nominates his final Cabinet post nominee on this date, Gov. Sunny Perdue to be his secretary of U.S. Agriculture.
  51. 2018 Friday: Olympic gold medalist Aly Raisman joined dozens of other women and girls in confronting her former doctor Larry Nassar, at his sentencing hearing for multiple sexual assaults; she warned the scumbag that the testimony of the “powerful army” of survivors would haunt him in prison.  Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms- in the spirit of Mao Zedong- consider writing the “Xi Jinping Thought” into the state constitution after already adding the dictator’s words to the party constitution.  Don’t you just love these authoritarian thugs?  What’s next?  A global pandemic?
  52. 2019 Saturday: The Covington High School kids from Kentucky are at the U.S. Capitol on this date wearing MAGA hats and celebrating America.  As they celebrate, the Black Hebrew Israelites, a hate group, is calling them all manner of vile and despicable names.  This does not dampen their celebration.   This is when an aged Indian chief named Nathan Phillips, a man who supposedly served with distinction in Vietnam, a member of the Indigenous Peoples’ March, stirs up trouble with the kids.  The phony Indian chieftain intruded into the mass of the young kids, banging his drum and chanting war songs, and got right into the face of young Sandman who stood silently and reverently.  The news media would slant the incident into making the high schoolers a bunch of racist bigots and lovers of the KKK which shocked the ENTIRE PLANET!  However, approximately two years later after attorney Linn Wood went after the Fake News Media, young Mr. Sandman would become fabulously wealthy after the New York Times and several TV channels had to pay tens of millions of dollars for defamation and slander. 
  53. 2019 Saturday A: In London, England, drummer/percussionist with the Michael Schenker Group- Edward “Ted” McKenna, died at the age of 68 from complications from a routine hernia operation.  Besides playing with MSG, he played with loads of other bands.
  54. 2020 Sunday: In the AFC Championship Game, the Kansas City Chiefs, 14-4, beat the Tennessee Titans, 11-8, by a final score of 35-24.  Meanwhile, in the NFC Championship Game, the San Francisco 49ers, 15-3, beat the Green Bay Packers, 14-4, by a final score of 37-20.  Super Bowl LIV will be between the 49ers and the Chiefs.   Elsewhere, in a rare event in Honolulu, Hawaii, cops go to evict a man who responds by shooting three of them, killing two, and then sets his home ablaze.  The fire leaps to four neighboring homes with the suspect dying in the blaze.  Meanwhile, a nightclub shooting in Kansas City, Missouri, kills two- including the shooter- while injuring another 15 people.
  55. 2021 Tuesday: A Politico poll (note- Politico is extremely far-left in its politics) suggests that 1-in-5 Republicans want President Trump convicted in his second impeachment trial.  This also means that 4-in-5 Republicans do NOT want to see him convicted so which number makes more sense to you?  One-in-five Republicans are RINOs and should be expelled from the party.  Period.  Speaking of the inaccuracy of political polls, Gallup reports that ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden’s favorability among the American people stands at 57-percent.  Everyone with half a brain or more understands that this is BS.  Elsewhere, Dick Morris tells Newsmax that ‘polls are being manipulated to hurt President Donald J. Trump as he leaves office.’ 
  56. 2021 Tuesday A: Speaking of the incoming ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden administration, we learned today that the Department of Homeland Security has hired a private security firm, Hana Industries for $1.6 million to the end of the month to ensure the 46th president’s personal security.  This says that ‘Pro-China Joe’ can trust no one in federal law enforcement, the National Guard, or the U.S. Secret Service.  It also shows that the 46th president is a usurper, that he (if he remains cognizant of reality) and those around him know implicitly that he did NOT win the 2020 Presidential Election.  What’s even worse is that this demonstrates that we will now have a ‘secret police,’ a ‘Gestapo,’ if you will, sworn to protect this usurper and to punish his enemies.  Everyone wake up and take note.   Regarding the National Guard’s role in securing the Inauguration, Republican Congressman Matt Waltz of Florida says that fellow Congressman Steve Cohen’s attacks on the Guard are insulting.
  57. 2021 Tuesday B: Four of ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden’s picks for Cabinet positions are facing U.S. Senate committees today in confirmation hearings.  First, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, next Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, Avril Haines- director of national security, and Alejandro Mayorkas, director of Homeland Security.   Oh, Beijing Biden also picks a tranny to be his assistant secretary of health.  Good for you for checking off all the boxes there, Mr. President Biden.  In the same vein, RINO Senator Lindsey Graham says, ‘watch out for Biden ushering in a radical agenda as quickly as possible,’ (one we believe you are going to support, you fair-weather friend).  Outgoing U.S. Secretary Mike Pompeo accuses the Chi-Coms of committing genocide on their Uighur and other ethnic and religious minorities.  Oh- for some reason, the U.S. Department of State prematurely announced the ‘departure of President Donald J. Trump.’  What’s up with that?
  58. 2021 Tuesday C: Quinnipiac reports that outgoing President Donald J. Trump’s final approval ratings are 34-percent approval and 61-percent disapproval.  This supports Dick Morris’ assertions earlier in this post.  Morris also says it will take a while to appreciate ALL of the accomplishments of the 45th president (which is WHY we believe they will strip him from the history and record books).  Speaking of Mr. Trump, many fear that all the great accomplishments he had on stopping illegal immigration, sound tax policy, and holding the Chi-Coms accountable for their actions now are at risk with feeble Old Joe Biden entering the White House.  He will strip them all away.  The country will never be the same ever again.  Speaking of Trump-related stories, the Cancel Culture at Harvard University wants ALL real and honorary degrees given to Trump administration officials stripped away, denounced, and tossed into the dumpster.  Meanwhile, Canada begs the incoming 46th president ‘NOT to cancel the Keystone XL Pipeline on Day #1.’   
  59. 2021 Tuesday D: Famed pollster and commentator Doug Schoen is joining Newsmax.  Next, lawyers for ex-Michigan Governor Rick Snyder say the people hounding him over the Flint water crisis filed their papers in the wrong county.   Elsewhere, the N.Y. Mets fire their general manager over sexually explicit tweets to women.  Why do they never learn?  Say it in person or not at all, dummy.   Next, we learn that Trump attorney and ‘America’s Mayor’ Rudy Giuliani won’t represent the former 45th president at the second impeachment trial.  Meanwhile, the Wyoming GOP votes to censure RINO Congresswoman Liz Cheney.  Note to Wyoming: BOOT HER OUT NOW.  Finally, according to author David Horowitz, ‘Democrats HATE America’s founding principles.’
  60. 2021 Tuesday E: The U.S. secretary of the Army hammers the Department of Defense for its bureaucratic response to the Capitol Hill riots of January 6.  Speaking of this, forever-angry Hillary Clinton bellows that we ‘need a 9-11-style commission to dig into Donald Trump’s role in encouraging violence at the U.S. Capitol on the sixth day of January 2021.’  People had a right to be angry, Hillary, even though more evidence continues coming to light daily showing the shoe’s on the other foot, that House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi ordered Capitol Hill law enforcement to stand aside and to allow the Antifa infiltrators to enter the nation’s seat of government unmolested and unhindered.  When the evidence is out in full, the attention will shift onto the Democrats which is why Speaker Pelosi is sounding the alarm over the NSA’s upcoming investigation into BOTH ‘Pro-China Joe’ and son, Hunter Biden.   Meanwhile, Mike Lindell of ‘My Pillow’ fame says there is 100-percent evidence of Chi-Com and Canuck interference in the 2020 Presidential Election which is why Dominion Voting Systems now wants to sue him.
  61. 2021 Tuesday F: Outgoing President Donald J. Trump slaps communist Venezuela with a heap of brand-new sanctions.  He also tapes a farewell address which is smart- move to leave before ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden’s new (Chi-Com-backed) Secret Police can catch you.  Meanwhile, Congressman Jim Jordan, R-OH, slams ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden for his words that are encouraging an invasion force of illegal aliens heading north to our southern border.  Elsewhere, a political scientist finds himself charged for being an ‘unregistered agent of Iran.’  Watertown professor Kaveh Lotfolah Afrasiabi finds himself in trouble for schilling for the Iranians while claiming to be a neutral commentator.
  62. 2021 Tuesday G: Germany reports a NEW COVID-19 virus strain that is unlike the one discovered in the United Kingdom a few months back.  Meanwhile, Los Angeles County is lifting restrictions on air quality controls because Chi-Vi fatalities awaiting cremation are backing up and need to head to the furnace ASAP.  In other news, Georgia moves to certify the U.S. Senate run-off races of January 5, blaming President Trump for the loss of two GOP Senate seats we allege was the price to get rid of the 45th president.
  63. 2021 Tuesday H: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 95,963,947 confirmed cases, +784,744, 2,051,049, confirmed deaths, +17,408, and 52,854,855 confirmed recoveries, +398,238.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 24,290,413 confirmed cases, up 172,654 from yesterday’s reporting, 403,063 confirmed deaths, UP 1,807, and 10,511,075 confirmed recoveries, UP 43,157.
  64. 2021 Tuesday 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: 3,049,980 confirmed cases, 33,945 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases, 324 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 293,807 confirmed cases, 3,974 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: North Dakota: currently, they have 96,093 confirmed cases, 1,408 confirmed deaths, and 93,451 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 558,249 confirmed cases, 4,044 confirmed deaths, and 473,572 confirmed recoveries. 
  65. 2021 Tuesday J:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,950.52, UP 116.26 points (+0.38%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,197.18, UP 198.68 points (+1.53%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,798.91, UP 30.66 points (+0.81%).  The price of GOLD is $1,848.00 per troy oz., -0.20 (-0.01%) while the price of SILVER is $25.28 per troy ounce, -0.035 (-0.14%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,094.70 per troy oz, +2.70 (+0.25%) while the price of COPPER is $3.63 per pound, -0.0015 (-0.04%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,365.00 per troy oz, -30.10 (-1.26%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $53.18 per barrel, +0.20 (+0.38%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.48 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Iranian Rial equals 42,000.00.  That’s what a terrorism-based economy gets you…
  66. 2021 Tuesday K: Moron David Hogg calls for the resignation of Georgia Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene.  Screw him.  Next, we learn that Senator Mitch McConnell, R-KY, Congressman Kevin McCarthy, R-CA, and outgoing Vice President Mike Pence are going to skip outgoing President Donald J. Trump’s farewell ceremonies at White House tomorrow in order to attend the Inauguration Day ceremonies of “Pro-China Joe” Biden.  Scum.  Meanwhile, the FBI is continuing its search for the scumbag who placed pipe bombs around the Capitol Building on January 6.      
  67. 2021 Tuesday L: Outgoing Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Ken Cuccinelli tells Greg Kelly of Newsmax TV that the ‘inauguration of Joe Biden is going to be safe, that it was always going to be safe, but that House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi was requesting crew-operated 50-caliber machine guns on the roofs of armored vehicles as though we were keeping peace in Iraq or fighting in Afghanistan.  He said that ‘thankfully, the DOD nixed this request’ but what is clear and should be clear to every American is that what the Democrats are doing is NOT GOOD.  They KNOW we KNOW they stole the election, and that ‘Drooling Joe’ Biden is a usurper.  In the history of civil disturbances in this country, we have never had 50-caliber MG squads ready to light up demonstrators.  Folks, the ONLY demonstrators we will see tomorrow are the useful idiots- Antifa, BLM, and perhaps Iranian, Russian, and Chi-Com intel officers- stirring up violence among their bought-and-paid lackeys and bozos.   Meanwhile, Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-CO, the pistol-packing mama, disputes all charges made by crackhead Congressman Steve “Fried Chicken” Cohen, D-TN, who is equating her with being a Nazi and who claims that Congresswoman Boebert’s mother ‘participated in the Capitol Hill riots of January 6.’  What a worthless POS you are, “Fried Chicken” Cohen.  What we are going to see tomorrow is a Democrat-engineered “Beer Hall Putsch” in the streets of D.C. and across the country, a ginned up uprising they can use as an excuse for taking our civil liberties away from us.  
  68. 2021 Tuesday M: Next, please stick around for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1626 with an $865 million jackpot up for grabs (please see ‘P’ below).  When will Democrats tell lottery winners that their ‘patriotic obligations to the country are to hand over their entire pot (while still paying the taxes on it) so they can then redistribute the money to illegal aliens and Muslim refugees and whatever other crackpot, left-wing loony tunes schemes they have for seizing wealth?  It’s coming folks, just like the seizure of ALL privately-owned gold, silver, platinum, and whatever else the scumbags can get their grubby mitts on just like the requirement that every American middle-class family take either homeless people or an illegal alien family into their homes and provide them all care, comfort, and support.  Don’t laugh, people, don’t laugh.  
  69. 2021 Tuesday N: Incoming Secretary of State Anthony Blinken acknowledges that President Donald J. Trump has the correct views on communist China.  He also says that the new administration is going to reevaluate the North Korea ‘issue’ from top to bottom.  Note- we predict war within the first six months due to mismanagement, mistakes, and a fossilized view of the Hermit Kingdom.   We also learn today that incoming #47 plans to keep the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem but will press for Palestinian statehood.  We predict war coming here, too.  Next, numerous U.S. schools announce they won’t view the Inauguration Day events out of fear that violence will explode across the country and the little imps will tremble under their desks.  Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader (for today) “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell shows his true colors by driving a dagger into the back of the president who helped him accomplish things with the federal courts heretofore unseen in decades by saying Trump ‘fed lies’ to the Capitol Hill rioters of January 6, 2021.  You’ve seen the same tape we have, Mitch; you are almost guaranteeing the death of the GOP.  Good luck.
  70. 2021 Tuesday O: We learn that tomorrow a judge is going to decide the House race in New York’s upstate, the last race to be called: House District 22.  Former Congresswoman Claudia Tenney, Republican, holds a 29-vote lead over current Rep. Anthony Brindisi, Democrat.  Out of more than 325,000 votes cast, Tenney has clung to this slim margin of victory and the race should have been called long ago.  We will find out, hopefully, tomorrow.   Elsewhere, Twitter users BLAST CNN (Communist News Network, LOL) for seeking to ban Newsmax and perhaps One America News, too.  Getting Orwellian around here, folks.  Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal says that outgoing President Donald J. Trump could form the ‘Patriot Party.’  Finally, FOX News terminates long-time pundit Chris Stirewalt over his criticism of the network calling Arizona ‘early’ on Election Night.   Fox News could not handle the truth.
  71. 2021 Tuesday P: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1626 with an $865 million jackpot on the line: 10, 19, 26, 28, 50, and Mega 16.  Out of 716,770 winning tickets, ONE person had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $1,401,723.  Congratulations!  The pot is still climbing!  The winning ticket was sold at a 7/11 in Artesia, CA 90701.
  72. 2021 Tuesday Q: As Bea O’Malley predicted in her last three posts of last week, incoming President Joseph R. Biden is going to face tests on a variety of fronts.  Iranian commandoes and paratroopers are holding rehearsals for what might come in the Persian Gulf.  They are holding drills at the mouth of the Straits of Hormuz.  We expect the Chi-Coms, Russia, Venezuela, North Korea, even Cuba, to begin causing trouble because incoming #46 is not up to the task nor is his army of Obama ‘retreads.’  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump’s former adviser Steve Bannon gets one of the pardons the president signed today.
  73. 2022 Wednesday: Stick around  and uncover the dirty schemes the GOP is doing to cause Joe trouble…

ENDNOTES:

[i] 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.

[ii] 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.

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

[iv] We hope to share the music of vocalist Robert Palmer at some point within the next decade.

[v] We hope to promote the music of America at some point within the next decade.  Please stay tuned for further information.

[vi] We hope to do the music of Carl Perkins the same time we do Johnny Cash and other pioneers of American rock and roll, country, and rockabilly music.  We hope you will stay tuned for the day when we do.

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

[viii] We began promoting the music of Mountain beginning on Friday, 14-December-2012 through Sunday, 20-January-2013.  This also included West, Bruce & Laing but sadly, we overlooked Leslie West’s solo career so please stay tuned for his discography sometime in the next 8-12 years.

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

FOLKS, AS MUCH AS IT CAUSES ME SHAME TO BEG, SOMEONE HAS TO HELP JOE OTHERWISE, OUR PARTY IS GOING DOWN THE CRAPPER IN NOVEMBER…

  63. 2020 Wednesday: U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is considering the U.S. designating communist Cuba a state sponsor of terrorism, we believe because of the microwave sonic attacks on our embassy personnel.  The State Department also approves the potential sale of 3,000 smart bombs to Saudi Arabia.  Speaking of the Middle East, B-52 bombers begin flying patrols over the Persian Gulf to put the rat-shit Iranians on their backfoot.  Elsewhere, as things heat up in the two Georgia U.S. Senate run-off races, former President Barack Hussein Obama, and leftist singer/songwriter/performer John Legend team up to make a crappy TV add for ‘Pro-Beijing Jon’ Ossoff.   Regarding these races, leftist commentators are already predicting the results may take weeks to compile.  WTF- it’s a single state.  This should tell everyone shenanigans will be ongoing.  Also, in the Peach State, Governor Brian Kemp- a man whom President Trump helped get elected- says an audit of Fulton County is ‘not his to order.’
  64. 2020 Wednesday A:  On the world front, Argentina- the land from whence comes the worst pontiff in papal history- Pope Francis- passes a bill legalizing abortion.  Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms do TWO things: first, they jail activists in Hong Kong seeking to leave for better living conditions elsewhere with sentences of up to three years in a Chi-Com slammer.  Second, Beijing is demanding that Turkey repatriate Uighur Muslims who escaped western China to be returned to the communist country.  Why?  Answer: to join their fellow Uighurs in the concentration camps.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Beijing and the European Union ink an agreement that will ‘open’ China to Western investors.  What can go wrong with this?
  65. 2020 Wednesday B: In Moscow, President Vladimir Putin signs new laws that prohibit his country to control U.S. social media within his borders.  The laws also allow the Russian government to label individuals as ‘foreign agents’ as well as to prohibit the release of data on Russian intelligence officers.  The laws also allow him to run for two more six-year terms.  Mr. Putin just reestablish the Soviet Union and become dictator for life.  There.  We said it, just do it.
  66. 2020 Wednesday C: The U.S. posts record goods-trade gap ahead of the 2020 holidays.  Meanwhile, Congress creeps closer to overriding President Donald J. Trump’s veto of the $740 billion of the U.S. Defense Policy Bill, all because they won’t strip BIG TECH of its Section 230 protections for platform providers.  The reason the president wants them stripped is because they behave like publishers and must face penalties for their conduct.  Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell blocks the $2,000 COVID-19 relief checks demanded by the president while allowing foreign aid to continue flowing to various countries around the world that hate our guts.  See you in six years, Mitch.  Regarding Mitch, Senator Josh Hawley, R-Mo., says he will stand with GOP House members contesting the fraudulent 2020 Presidential Election.  God bless you, Senator Hawley!  
  67. 2020 Wednesday D: Churches in New Mexico are being fined for holding packed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day sermons.  Meanwhile, GOP Congressman Adam Kinzinger, Illinois 16th congressional district, mocked Missouri Senator Josh Hawley for saying he will ‘object to election results’ on January 6, 2021.  Kinzinger is little more than a RINO in the pocket of the Deep State and Dems.   Speaking of Senator Hawley, apparently some snowflake at corporate headquarters for Wal-Mart tweeted out that the senator is a ‘sore loser’ and made fun of him, too, which led to a quick about face by Wal-Mart who apologized profusely for what their wayward employee did.  Elsewhere, California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom plans to use $2 billion (the state does not have) to reopen elementary schools.  The man took several billion from the gas tax earmarked for road and highway repairs and diverted it to fight Global Warming, fund the high-speed rail snafu, and fund CalPERS.  Finally, the United Nations says that ‘Trump’s pardons for the imprisoned Black Water operators convicted of killing ‘civilians’ in Iraq violates the Geneva Conventions.’[xi]  
  68. 2020 Wednesday E: The U.S. Census Bureau announces it will miss its deadline which means illegal aliens will most likely be counted in the Census which is not right.  A judge rules that illegal alien families cannot be detained indefinitely.  We say launch Operation Wetback II, load them onto planes, trains, trucks, buses, and run them across the border in Mexico.  If Mexico doesn’t want them, they must stop them from coming.  Meanwhile, pro-illegal alien leftists urge an extension on visa stays for noncitizens in the country while advocates against illegal aliens demand the opposite. 
  69. 2020 Wednesday F: Here are the latest stats for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, straight out of the fetid bowels of the world’s lone communist semi-superpower: 82,510,560 confirmed cases, UP by 601,673 cases, 1,800,400 confirmed deaths, UP by 13,563 deaths, and 46,640,066 confirmed recoveries, UP by 368,822 recoveries from yesterday’s figures.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 19,910,674 confirmed cases, UP by 197,630 new cases, 344,877 confirmed deaths, UP by 3,693 new deaths, and 8,757,150 confirmed recoveries, UP by 94,066 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt POSs).  Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 416,584 confirmed cases, 3,307 confirmed deaths, and 372,284 confirmed recoveries.
  70. 2020 Wednesday G: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 2,246,307 confirmed cases, 24,963 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 21,209 confirmed cases, 285 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION OF confirmed recoveries anymore- what is up with YOU, Gov. Ige, you Democrat hack.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 245,750 confirmed cases, 3,433 confirmed deaths, but like California, the gorilla-faced governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, Massachusetts: 367,918 confirmed number of cases, 12,338 confirmed deaths, and sadly, no mention of the confirmed number of recoveries- thank you.  Meanwhile, the U.S. demands the release of a Uighur doctor- Gulshan Abbas- the communist Chinese have given a 20-year stretch in a Chi-Com prison because of the human rights activities of his family in the United States.
  71. 2020 Wednesday H:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,409.56, UP 73.89 points (+0.24%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,870.00, UP 19.78 points (+0.15%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,732.04, UP 5.00 points (+0.04%).  The price of GOLD is $1,900.00 per troy oz., +6.80 (+0.35%) while the price of SILVER is $26.74 per troy ounce, +0.167 (+0.63%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,072.60 per troy oz, +15.80 (+1.50%) while the price of COPPER is $3.55 per pound, +0.005 (+0.14%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,378.40 per troy oz, +34.10 (+1.45%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $48.26 per barrel, -0.14 (-0.29%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.52 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.81 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.88.
  72. 2020 Wednesday I: Girls Scouts USA call on their bakers to address issues of child labor abroad in two Third World countries where young children harvest ingredients the bakers contract to use in their cookie products: Malaysia and Indonesia.  Why don’t we grow, and harvest products used in American food items here in the United States?  We do have tropical climates not only on the U.S. mainland but in Hawaii and in other U.S. territories in the Pacific Region.   Elsewhere, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp pushes back on President Donald J. Trump’s demand for his resignation: ‘Mind your own business.’  Elsewhere, John Paul Mac Isaac, proprietor the computer shop where Hunter Biden left his now infamous laptops for repairs says he ‘never had any intentions of changing the 2020 Presidential Election.  Finally, Alaska Airlines becomes the first major airline to ban ‘emotional support animals.’
  73. 2020 Wednesday J: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Super Lotto Draw #3521 with a jackpot of $7 million up for grabs: 27, 30, 37, 42, 46, and Mega 19.  The highest winners were NINE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $1,757 apiece.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #807 with a massive $363 million jackpot at stake: 03, 43, 45, 61, 65, and Powerball 14.  Out of 131,167 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who got FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $36,491 apiece.  God bless ‘em!
  74. 2020 Wednesday K: We invite everyone to stick around to discover whatever the Chi-Coms and their flunkies in the Democratic Party are up to today- you know they’re up to no good.  We want all of you to discover their misdeeds and crimes along with us…
  75. 2021 Thursday: Stick around…

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] Sometime within the next decade, we hope to present the music of classic rockers Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters, and numerous others.  We know you will enjoy the presentation so please; remain vigilant for the day we do. 

[ii] We began promoting the music of Mountain beginning on Friday, 14-December-2012 through Sunday, 20-January-2013.  This also included West, Bruce & Laing but sadly, we overlooked Leslie West’s solo career so please stay tuned for his discography sometime in the next 8-12 years.

[iii] Not sure when we will begin presenting the music of this famed American band- the Monkees- but when we do, we also do the solo catalogs of Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork.  Please stay tuned for more information.

[iv] We expect to do the music of Jethro Tull, Wild Turkey, Ian Anderson, and Paris sometime in the next 5-6 years.  We hope you will still be with us.

[v] 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.

[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.

[vii] 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.

[viii] We look forward to doing the music of this famed funk-rock band.  The Ohio Players are amazing.

[ix] 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.

[x] We presented the music of the Kinks, as well as of Ray and Dave Davies, beginning on Monday, 22-December-2014 through Sunday, 15-March-2015.  We hope you will check out the music of this original British invasion band as they are as relevant today as they were more than 50 years ago.  Sure, beats the hell out of Maroon Five.

[xi] We say ‘F**k the United Nations.  When the UN calls the Russians on the carpet for all the people they’ve murdered in the Middle East (and around the world) or goes after their bosses, the Chi-Coms for running concentration camps, we will worry about Black Water operators but not until the UN finds its balls and does the job it was created to do.  C**ksuckers.

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

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

  63. 2020 Friday E: As the U.S. housing boom continues, developers have become fearful they may run out of land on which, to build the new communities.  Perhaps if we deported the illegal aliens in the country, we would have more available housing and land for development.  Just saying.  Meanwhile, “Pro-China Joe” and Dr. Jill Biden send Christmas greetings to the American people while the Pope at the Vatican urges every nation with vaccines for the Wuhan Virus Crisis not to forget the poor nations of the world who have no vaccines.  God bless you, Pontiff!   Elsewhere, the Washington Post says Microsoft Cloud customers have been hit hard by the Russian hacks.

Friday, December 25, 2020, Today in History:

Funding U.S. National Debt is akin to the Chi-Coms waging an ‘opium war’ against us- the more cash we need the more power Beijing gains

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…

[ix] Here is what the AICPENDBLOG.COM believes- when government is shutdown or a pandemic shuts down everything, EVERY government employee furloughed or deemed non-essential, whether school teachers of members of elective offices should not receive paychecks until everything returns to normal.  WTF should school teachers be sitting home, watching daytime TV, eating bonbons, and drinking booze be paid?  They are NOT working.  You want a f**king paycheck, take your worthless asses back to work.

  64. 2020 Wednesday B: ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden shares an uplifting message with the nation, that ‘our darkest days lay ahead.’  They sure do, IF YOU are in the White House because you are in the pocket of Xi Jinping, you worthless POS.  NOT OUR PRESIDENT!  Speaking of ‘Beijing Biden,’ he says the ‘Russian hack is not under control and that President Donald J. Trump must do something about it NOW.’  Vladimir Putin says in reply, there will be ‘nothing good’ under a “Pro-China Joe” Biden administration (says one communist to another).   Elsewhere, New York City- under the control of stoned moron Mayor Bill Di Blasio- leads the nation in population loss as more people abandon the dying city for greener pastures in other parts of the country.
  65. 2020 Wednesday C: British Prime Minister Boris Johnson- BoJo to his friends and family- eyes greater lockdowns on the British people using the NEW STRAIN of the Chi-Com bat flu as his excuse.  Speaking of Great Britain, Brexit is not going well because the Xi Jinping Virus has slowed down talks between the UK and the EU.  Go figure.  Regarding the Wuhan Virus Crisis, Pfizer says it will supply the U.S. with another 100,000,000 doses of its Kung Flu vaccine by July 2021.  Next, Google says it warned scientists NOT to share information on race, gender, and facial analysis operations conducted at the corrupt search engine giant, one run by a Punjabi POS named Sundar Pichai.  The man and his family should face immediate deportation.
  66. 2020 Wednesday D: Georgia Republican Congressman Jody Hice, 10th congressional district, says that Senate Majority Leader (and noted RINO) Mitch McConnell, KY, must tell senators to get aboard with the upcoming challenges to the presidential election next month.  Flabby old Mitch- married to the daughter of a Chi-Com shipping tycoon does not seem to want to stand by his president but would rather move on.  Good for you, congressman.  Speaking of Georgia, Republican Governor Brian Kemp says a report will be forthcoming regarding the state’s signature audit results.  We shall see.   Elsewhere, the corrupt FBI says that Iran is the party responsible for encouraging violence against politicians who denied there was any election fraud.  Hmmm…someone wants to get nuked!
  67. 2020 Wednesday E: Last week, there were 803,000 new jobless claims.   Meanwhile, FHFA- the Federal Housing Finance Agency- housing prices went up by a whopping 10.2-percent compared to last year.  Speaking of which, housing prices rose 3.1-percent in the 3rd quarter, UP 7.8-percent over last year.  Meanwhile, a blast of unknown origin in a multi-story building in Baltimore, Maryland, injures 21 and collapses the roof.  Authorities are investigating…
  68. 2020 Wednesday F: The UN Human Rights Office blasts Trump for having pardoned four U.S. military contractors employed by Blackwater Worldwide doing time in a federal prison for having whacked numerous Iraqi ‘civilians’ in a free fire incident back in 2007 during the war in that s-hole country.  What happened in Baghdad’s Nisoor Square was an assault on a convoy which lead to the contractors fighting back.  Given sentences of 12 years to life, they should NEVER have been in prison in the first place, morons.  Get the U.S. out of the U.N.
  69. 2020 Wednesday G: It’s official: Andrew Yang is going to run against highly unpopular New York City Mayor Bill Di Blasio for his seat.  We think Yang might be the guy.  Although a liberal, he has common sense and business knowledge.  Everyone HATES Di Blasio, and we suspect he will be out on his butt cheeks.   Elsewhere, we are sad to say that we heard of the passing of Chef Brian’s second wife, Kay Langer Carrick.  She passed away last night.  Rest in peace, Kay, rest in peace.
  70. 2020 Wednesday H: Here are the latest stats for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, straight out of the fetid bowels of the world’s lone communist semi-superpower: 78,551,622 confirmed cases, UP by 749,901 cases, 1,727,556 confirmed deaths, UP by 14,447 deaths, and 44,225,515 confirmed recoveries, UP by 330,612 recoveries from yesterday’s figures.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 18,609,072 confirmed cases, UP by 211,892 new cases, 329,172 confirmed deaths, UP by 3,556 new deaths, and 8,225,571 confirmed recoveries, UP by 90,156 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt POSs).  Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 384,728 confirmed cases, 3,141 confirmed deaths, and 351,780 confirmed recoveries.
  71. 2020 Wednesday H: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 1,968,430 confirmed cases, 23,284 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 20,749 confirmed cases, 285 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION OF confirmed recoveries anymore- what is up with YOU, Gov. Ige, you Democrat hack.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 232,284 confirmed cases, 3,214 confirmed deaths, but like California, the gorilla-faced governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, Michigan, where that dingbat governor Gretchen Whitmer rules with an iron fist: 508,449 confirmed number of cases, 12,415 confirmed deaths, and sadly, no mention of the confirmed number of recoveries- thank you.   Speaking of the Yellow Fever 2020, the ignoramus homicidal governor of New York- Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo is whining and sniveling that his fellow Democrats in the nation’s capital are not sending him MORE COVID-19 Chi-Com Bat Flu Virus relief dollars he can stuff into his pockets.  As President Gerald R. Ford said to New York City in 1975 when they were begging for a federal government bailout to save them then, “DROP DEAD.”
  72. 2020 Wednesday I:  2020 Wednesday E: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,128.83, UP 114.32 points (+0.38%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,771.11, DOWN 36.80 points (-0.29%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,690.01, UP 2.75 points (+0.75%).  The price of GOLD is $1,877.30 per troy oz., -0.80 (-0.04%) while the price of SILVER is $25.78 per troy ounce, -0.146 (-0.56%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,019.50 per troy oz, +2.40 (+0.24%) while the price of COPPER is $3.55 per pound, -0.006 (-0.17%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,339.10 per troy oz, +16.00 (+0.69%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $47.95 per barrel, -0.17 (-0.35%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.54 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.04.
  73. 2020 Wednesday J: President Donald J. Trump continues with more pardons and sentence commutations today, 25 at last count.  Charles Kushner, son-in-law Jared Kushner’s father, friend Roger Stone, former campaign manager Paul Manafort, among others.  Leftist hack and serial abuser of those whom he is investigating- Andrew Weissman- the so-called ‘pit bull’ of Robert S. Mueller III is screeching like a banshee that President Trump is abusing the pardon system.  Wah, wah, wah.  Hopefully, we see you in an orange jumpsuit one day, Mr. Weissman, POS.
  74. 2020 Wednesday K: Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto #3519 with a $17 million jackpot at stake: 01, 12, 15, 23, 33, and 19.  Out 101,365 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers for a prize of $18,133 apiece.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #805 with a $321 million jackpot up for grabs: 06, 13, 38, 39, 53, and Power 06.  Out of 108,248 winning tickets, the highest winners were 54 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $539 apiece.
  75. 2020 Wednesday L:  Famed hard-rock guitarist Leslie West who fronted the band, Mountain[x] for decades, died from cardiac arrest in Palm Coast, Florida, at the age of 75.  West also played with a slew of other bands, adding his world-famous chops to a variety of wonderful hard rock albums.  We hope you will seek the music of this legendary performer out and consider adding it to your ever-growing collection of life-altering music.
  76. 2021 Thursday: Please stick around to discover what the Chi-Coms and all their tools are up to today- you know they are up to something seeing as how they have their Democratic stooges in the U.S. to carry out their orders… meanwhile, we have Thursday Night Football this evening with a matchup of the rejuvenated San Francisco 49ers visiting the feisty Tennessee Titans.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album delivered by Fairport Convention was a ‘blast from the past,’ culled by an archivist: “From Cropredy to Portmeirion” (03-18-2002), an album of live music from 1990.  The band included virtuoso Maartin Allcock (guitars, mandolins, and the bouzouki), Ric Sanders (violins), Dave Pegg (acoustic and electric basses, and tenor mandola), Simon Nichol (guitars), and Dave Mattacks (keyboards, drums, and percussion).  It is amazing- and extremely enjoyable- to envision each of these performances with your mind and ears.  We love it, we know you will love it, too, and you can find it at almost every site specializing in classic rock/folk rock music such as Amazon, Discogs, AllMusic, eBay, you name it, it’s available.  We hope you do check it out as we believe you will love this band as much as we do.  Enjoy.

Wednesday, December 23, 2020, Today in History:

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…


Thursday, December 23, 2021:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.  This presentation included the Jefferson Starship, too, of which, the artist was NOT a member.

[ii] We promoted the music of Hot Tuna beginning on Tuesday, 24-April-2012 through Thursday, 23-May-2012.

[iii] 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.

[iv] We look forward to promoting the music of Aerosmith one day.  We hope within the next 8-10 years.  Remain vigilant.

[v] We promoted the music of King Crimson, one of the greatest prog-rock bands of all time beginning on Monday, 20-October-2014 through Sunday, 21-December-2014.  We hope you will check them out as the remain active to this day.

[vi] We promoted the music of Genesis, as well as of the individual members, beginning on Tuesday, 02-April-2019 through Sunday, 15-September-2019.  We hope you will check them out and enjoy. 

[vii] We promoted the First Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award in 2018 and in 2019, we are working on the Second Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award.  Beria was a scumbag, a murderer, a rapist, someone who did the dirty work of his boss, Josef Stalin, and took extraordinary pride in doing much of it himself.  The award determines who most deserves similar treatment- kidding, folks, just kidding, as what Beria dished out in his heyday, lead to the back of the head in the bowels of the Lubyanka Prison.  This is a humorous award so please do not get your panties in a wad.

[viii] We look forward to promoting the music of the archetypal American rock band, the Beach Boys, sometime within the next five years or so.  Please keep posted for that day.  Thank you.

[ix] If we are still alive and doing the blog in 20 years or so, we hope to get to the infamous Pussy Riot.  You go, girls, you go, keep speaking out against the dictatorial scum trashing your country.

[x] We began promoting the music of Mountain beginning on Friday, 14-December-2012 through Sunday, 20-January-2013.  This also included West, Bruce & Laing but sadly, we overlooked Leslie West’s solo career so please stay tuned for his discography sometime in the next 8-12 years.

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

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

  54. 2018 Saturday: A government shutdown that went into effect the previous night continued into the weekend with lawmakers leaving for home for the Christmas holidays.  The shutdown came about because President Trump would not sign the budget if it did not include a measly $1.5 billion for him to continue work on the southern border wall.  Senate Minority Leader “Crying Chuck” Schumer told the president that he ‘will never get the money for his barrier so stop with the shutdown and put the government back to work.’  Finally, Indonesia’s Anak Krakatau volcano island erupted and collapsed, triggering a tsunami that killed more than 420 people and displaced 40,000.

  56. 2020 Tuesday: In a move that surprised everyone, California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom, aka Silver Spoon, aka Nancy Pelosi’s nephew, appoints California Secretary of State Alex Padilla to fill the seat of ‘Vice President-elect’ Kamala Harris who- if she assumes office- will step down from the seat.  Padilla will have to run in 2022 should he fill her seat.  He would become the first Latino senator from the Golden State.  Many suspected that Governor Newsom would appoint himself to fill the Harris seat because it is clear he is going to go down in next year’s recall election.  It would be the only way he would ever make it to a national office.
  57. 2020 Tuesday A: Jared Kushner joins a planeload of Israelis for the first flight from Israel to Morocco, the fourth nation to establish or resume normalized relations with the Jewish state.  Next, the hardcore left BLASTS House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi for caving on the COVID-19 Relief Bill.  She held this up from well before the 2020 Elections last month until now agreeing to the same things she agreed to two months ago.  However, Rush Limbaugh reports all manner of giveaways to foreign nations, checks to illegal aliens and their families that are retroactive to the last Chi-Vi relief bill.  Coupled with $600 checks for each American and each illegal alien in the country (remember: the true estimate is between 30-to-60 million illegals within the fabric of the country) the illegals will receive $600 plus $1,200 for a grand total of $1,800 per each illegal alien.  WTF?  Time for a second revolution!
  58. 2020 Tuesday B: Holy Roller Pat Robertson says, ‘Trump should move on, forget about 2024.’[xi]  Loser.  Next, Rudy Giuliani says the Pennsylvania lawsuit is the first of many to come regarding fraud and corruption in the 2020 Presidential Election- the one the Democrats are attempting to steal.   Economic adviser to President Donald J. Trump, Peter Navarro, says the ‘stolen election is an example of brass-knuckles politics.’  Noted conservative author and speaker Patrick Buchannan asks a pertinent question: “Can democracy hold a dysfunctional United States together?’  Good question for which, we don’t have the answer.
  59. 2020 Tuesday C: A Gallup poll shows that “Pro-China Joe” Biden has 65-percent transition approval among Democrats.   Speaking of Sinophile Joe, he is going to nominate the head of Connecticut’s educational system- Miguel Cardona, a hardcore left-wing, Democratic-Socialist loser- to become his secretary of the Department of Education.  What can go wrong with this?   Speaking of the Chi-Coms, the Chi-Com air force joined forces with the Russians to fly joint bomber patrols over the Pacific Ocean.  Some say they were ‘surprised’ by this event, but we were not surprised and expect to see more of our adversaries join together to demonstrate a unified show of force.   Also speaking of the Chi-Coms, Beijing emplaces new visa restrictions on U.S. citizens entering their authoritarian country in what is seen as a tit-for-tat move.
  60. 2020 Tuesday D: Former New Jersey Governor and failed presidential candidate Chris Christie says, ‘he is leaving the door open to a run in 2024.’  Who is going to vote for you, you traitorous, RINO scumbag?  Certainly, NO one here.  Meanwhile RINOS are expressing mixed feelings if President Trump revives “The Apprentice” should he leave office following the corrupt election.  None of their business.  Speaking of the president, he is considering two pardons for two former GOP congressmen now doing time in federal prisons: Duncan Hunter, Jr. of California, and Steve Stockman of Texas.   Hunter was sent to prison in December 2019 for missing campaign funds while Stockman was sent to prison in November 2018 on charges of money laundering, mail and wire fraud, income tax evasion, and conspiracy, all charges related to a non-profit organization he had set up.  Many believe he was set-up and railroaded by liberal prosecutors and judges.
  61. 2020 Tuesday E: As COVID-19 cases continue arising in California, the state is desperately searching for additional nurses and doctors to handle the crisis, one caused by Governor “The Smiler” Newsom.  We learn, too, that 2020 has become the DEADLIEST year in U.S. history what with 3 million deaths from the Chinese Virus, homicides, suicides, accidental drug overdoses, and far too many other diseases left untreated because everything was diverted into dealing with the effects of the Kung Flu.  
  62. 2020 Tuesday F: Here are today’s Comrade Xi Pangolin-Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 77,801,721 confirmed cases, UP by 613,375 cases, 1,713,109 confirmed deaths, UP by 13,824 deaths, and 43,894,903 confirmed recoveries (once again, down from one week ago- something funny going on here), UP by 372,661 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 18,362,068 confirmed cases, UP by 278,922 new cases, 324,441 confirmed deaths, UP by 2,923 new deaths, and 8,135,415 confirmed recoveries, UP by 135,302 new recoveries.
  63. 2020 Tuesday G: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 1,945,841 confirmed cases, 23,023 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 20,423 confirmed cases, 282 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 230,743 confirmed cases, 3,186 confirmed deaths, but like California, the apelike governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, Tennessee: 534,019 confirmed number of cases, 6,269  confirmed number of deaths, and sadly, NO MENTION of confirmed number of recoveries.  Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there.  Here they are: 387,482 confirmed cases, 3,136 confirmed deaths, and 351,186 confirmed recoveries.
  64. 2020 Tuesday H: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,015.51, DOWN 200.94 points (-0.67%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,807.92, UP 65.40 points (+0.51%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,687.26, DOWN 7.66 points (-0.21%).  The price of GOLD is $1,869.10 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%) while the price of SILVER is $25.64 per troy ounce, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,011.50 per troy oz, +2.10 (+0.21%) while the price of COPPER is $3.52 per pound, +0.0035 (+0.10%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,323.10 per troy oz., +6.70 (+0.29%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $46.79 per barrel, -0.23 (-0.49%).  Today, COCOA is $2,555.00 per metric ton, +20.00 (+0.79).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.54 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.82 euros.  in other economic news, the more we learn about the bogus COVID-19 chi-vi relief bill, the more we learn it’s full of all  manner of bulls**t and crap.  president Donald J. Trump, veto this flipping bill.  tell mitch McConnell, that brain-dead hag Nancy Pelosi, crybaby chuckie, and even Kevin McCarthy to go suck a big one! no!  no!  no!
  65. 2020 Tuesday I: What we heard earlier is true: President Donald J. Trump issued full pardons to former Congressmen Steve Stockman, Chris Collins, and Duncan Hunter Jr. as well as George Papadopoulos who was singled out for special mistreatment as the doorway with which to enter the Trump campaign.  The president also issued a pardon to Alex van der Zwaan as well as commutations or pardons to others mistreated by the DEEP STATE APPARATUSES.  Pardon any-and-everyone in need of a pardon who might need a pardon.  Elsewhere, after a two-year-stint on the 15-member U.N. Security Council, Germany is leaving and its U.N. Ambassador Christoph Heusgen, going to retire.  The ambassador fought to fight to get two detained Canadians freed from communist China’s cruel grasp had the Chi-Com deputy ambassador to the U.N. Geng Shuang tell him, “Good riddance.”  Time to start nuking some Chi-Coms…
  66. 2020 Tuesday J: Corrupt prosecutors of the Southern District of New York are trying to get ahold of Rudy Giuliani’s emails so they can pursue him and the president.   They are seeking help from the Department of Justice so they can persecute- NOT prosecute- either President Trump OR the president’s attorney.  Meanwhile, the FREE INDEPENDENT NATION OF TAIWAN reports its first Chi-Com Virus case in 250 days.   Speaking of the Beijing Bat Flu, Dr. Tony Fauci received his vaccine today, saying it’s ‘safe’ and that ‘everyone should do it.’  We’ll see.  Ilhan Omar is mad at fellow Squad member AOC for rushing out to get her vaccine.  Elsewhere, President Trump signed an executive order that would permit Special Counsel John Durham to present classified intelligence from the CIA to a grand jury when he prepares his case against those who set the bogus Russian collusion scam investigation into motion. 
  67. 2020 Tuesday K: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1618 with a jackpot of $330,000,000 up for grabs: 29, 53, 56, 59, 67, and Mega 21.  Out of 117,883 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $15,651 apiece.
  68. 2020 Tuesday: One year ago today, here is where we were: as always, we encourage everyone to stick around and discover whatever the Chi-Coms, the Russians, the Canadians, the Iranians, and other garbage around the world are doing with their Democrat stooges in the U.S.  It’s always fascinating…
  69. 2021 Wednesday:  Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by Fairport Convention commemorated the band’s 35 years of existence, 1967-2002.  Aptly titled, “XXXV,” the album hit record store shelves on February 12, 2002, and featured an augmented lineup beginning with the core five of Simon Nichol (guitars, vocals, dulcimers, and piano), Ric Sanders (fiddle), Dave Pegg (bass, mandolins, guitars, and vocals), Chris Leslie (violins, multiple stringed instruments, and vocals), and Gerry Conway (drums and percussion).  Joining them on this endeavor were Ian Anderson (flute), Mark Tucker (guitars), Chris White (vocals), and a full horn section.  All 14 tunes on this amazing album latch onto one’s ears and thus one’s inner mind.  We hope you will seek this one out, give it a good listen, and enjoy- you will be glad you did.

ENDNOTES:

[i] We hope to do the music of Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, as well as Alpert’s solo career, somewhere around 2035.  We hope you will remain with us.

[ii] 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.

[iii] We began promoting the music of Mountain beginning on Friday, 14-December-2012 through Sunday, 20-January-2013.  This also included West, Bruce & Laing but sadly, we overlooked Leslie West’s solo career so please stay tuned for his discography sometime in the next 8-12 years.

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

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

[vi] We promoted the music of the Small Faces, Faces, and a bunch more interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We encourage everyone to search out the music of the various bands in this collection so you can add them to your growing music collection.

[viii] Member of the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam.
