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.    
  66. 2021 Wednesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,763,165 confirmed cases, 62,463 confirmed deaths, and 2,006,829 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,278,549 confirmed cases, 35,897 confirmed deaths, and 1,865,556 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 33,376 confirmed cases, 489 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 420,192 confirmed cases, 5,663 confirmed deaths, and 203,994 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., the U.S. Military: they have 291,757 confirmed cases, 348 confirmed deaths, and 278,457 confirmed recoveries.[xii]

  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.

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.

  65. 2020 Friday A: Meanwhile, in the world of the Kung Flu- the Chinese Virus, COVID-19, confirmed cases globally are 3,938,828; confirmed deaths are 274,655, and confirmed recoveries are 1,319,306 which is extremely good.  In the United States, we have 1,317,175 confirmed cases, 78,198 confirmed deaths, and 182,305 confirmed recoveries which most likely would be far higher if liberal states reported them.  California claims 63,698 confirmed cases and 2,711 confirmed deaths (with no info on confirmed recoveries).  Hawaii claims 629 confirmed cases, 17 deaths but 566 confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, Washington state notes 16,388 confirmed cases and 905 confirmed deaths but no notation as to the confirmed recoveries.  It is interesting to note that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo caused more than 4,000 deaths in nursing homes statewide by forcing them to house COVID-19 positive patients with rest home patients.  He will face justice himself for this outrage. 
  66. 2020 Friday B: Due to China’s ‘gift to the world,’ COVID-19, aka the Wuhan Virus Crisis, 20.5 million U.S. jobs were lost in the month of April alone, driving unemployment to nearly 15-percent, a number not seen since the days of the Great Depression.  Communist China must pay for this outrage and it’s high time the United States begins pushing for a resumption of the Two-China Policy by demanding Taiwan be returned to the United Nations as a FULL member with its original seat on the Security Council.   Elsewhere, the chief prosecutor in Venezuela handling the case of the mercenaries hired to topple ‘much-beloved’ President Nicolas “Bus Driver” Maduro demands the extradition of an American as well as two Venezuelan dissidents seeking freedom for their country.  Prosecutor Tarek William Saab wants American Jordan Goudreau and the two Venezuelans J.J. Rendon and Sergio Vergara ASAP. 
  67. 2021 Saturday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 158,312,868 confirmed cases, +3,346, 3,296,591  confirmed deaths, +280 (this number has not been updated today as you will see), and 136,663,877 confirmed recoveries, +84,102.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,454,581 confirmed cases, UP 35,755 from yesterday’s reporting, 595,588 confirmed deaths, UP 677,[xi] and 26,405,871 confirmed recoveries, UP 81,114.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[xii]   
  68. 2021 Saturday A: NOTE: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 279,772 CHI-VI deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, in another 183.61 days, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 182,837 deaths.      
  69. 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: 3,757,645 confirmed cases, 62,278 confirmed deaths, and 2,001,995 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,266,575 confirmed cases, 35,710 confirmed deaths, and 1,840,547 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 33,126 confirmed cases, 487 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 416,248 confirmed cases, 5,626 confirmed deaths, and 202,525 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s recovery numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Guam, a place the Democrats will want to transform into a state after D.C. and Puerto Rico become states: they have 8,034 confirmed cases, 139 confirmed deaths, and 7,789 confirmed recoveries.[xiii]   
  70. 2021 Saturday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 838,885 confirmed cases, 6,376 confirmed deaths, and 831,480 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Bahrain, a new friend of Israel: 187,905 cases of the virus, 678 confirmed deaths and 174,357 confirmed recoveries.[xiv]     
  71. 2021 Saturday D: Friday’s Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,777.76, UP 229.23 points (+0.66%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,752.24, UP 119.39 points (+0.88%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,232.60, UP 30.98 points (+0.74%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $64.82 per barrel, -0.08 (-0.02%).  The price of GOLD is $1,832.00 per troy oz., +0.70 (+0.04%) while the price of SILVER is $27.57 per troy ounce, +0.09 (+0.32%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,256.60 per troy oz, +2.10 (+0.17%) while the price of COPPER is $4.75 per pound, 0.00 (+0.01%).[xv]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,926.51 per troy oz, -20.16 (-0.68%).[xvi] The price of RHODIUM is $28,900.00 per troy oz., -400.00 (-1.37%).[xvii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.43 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.90.     In Russian Ruble, one greenback equals 73.62 and in Rwandan Franc, a buck equals 992.92 and in St. Helena Pound, one dollar equals 0.72 of theirs.[xviii]   Here’s a good one: U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo says that ‘many U.S. corporations support raising the corporate tax rate to 28-percent (but fails to mention WHICH ones support this job-killing stupidity).    
  72. 2021 Saturday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.095 per gallon, $2.880 in Florida, $3.822 in Hawaii, and $3.511 in Washington state.[xix]    Let’s look at one other location- Oklahoma: $2.707.  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- Iran: $1.946 per U.S. Gallon.[xx]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,264,002,317,913 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.
  73. 2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is dumping yet another Trump-era rule regarding the border, this one being that the collection of biometric data from illegal aliens along the border will now cease.  Thank you, Secretary Mayorkas.  (Note- and people wonder WHY everyone is buying firearms).  Speaking of Secretary Mayorkas, he lied to reporters earlier when he said that the numbers of illegals trying to cross into the country has gone way down and that the number of illegal alien minors has also decreased.
  74. 2021 Saturday G: Political News I– The U.S. Department of Justice has reaffirmed the war on ghost guns and will keep Joe Biden’s promise to enact sweeping gun reform (meaning gun control laws.  And they wonder as to WHY so many of us are buying guns, ammos, and accessories like flash and sound suppressants).  Next, census data shows that California’s population fell by more than 182,000 people in 2020 as people were fleeing the state in droves.  Speaking of California, now that it is becoming clear NO ONE wants Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom to remain as governor of the Golden State, the lightbulb has finally gone off over the dimwit’s head- he is now trying to do anything to save his job including making threats against all signers of the RECALL PETITION.  F**k you, Governor Newsom.
  75. 2021 Saturday H: Political News II– Karen Fann- president of the Arizona state senate- says that when the audit is over, she expects many irregularities will be discovered.  Next, new GOP voting laws look to hold election officials accountable as they should.  IF what happened to President Donald J. Trump in 2020 happened to a Democrat, they would be burning down the entire country.  We all know that.  Elsewhere, as Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Go, aka the Gropin’ Gov, continues trying to cling to his job like his compatriot in California is attempting, “Killer” Cuomo is shaking up his senior staff as there seems to be numerous leaks as to the criminal behavior exhibited by him and them in the killing of so many seniors.  Meanwhile, Dr. Alan Dershowitz says that ‘U.S. system of justice is being distorted’ by the double standards the American people have been witnessing, i.e., the raid on Rudy Giuliani’s apartment and the home of Victoria Toensing.
  76. 2021 Saturday I: Political News III– Nebraska needs tax reform and Charles Herbster is running to accomplish that for the citizens of the Cornhusker State.  Next, Governor Larry Hogan, RINO-MD, issued pardons to 34 victims of racial lynching.   Moving on, information has leaked that demonstrates that Disneyland has drunk the Kool-Aid and is deep in pushing Critical Race Theory.
  77. 2021 Saturday J: Miscellaneous News I– The largest pipeline of gasoline in the United States- the 1,500-mile Colonia Pipeline- was shut down by unknown hackers.  Sounds like environmentalists did this.   Next, in the glorious city of New York, a woman and her three-year-old child were shot.  SHOT.  Elsewhere, Ernest Angley, a ‘controversial televangelist has died at the ripe old age of 99.  Finally, the religion of peace strikes again near a girls school in Kabul, Afghanistan, sending at least 30 people off to meet with Allah sooner than they planned and injuring loads of others.
  78. 2021 Saturday K: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto And Powerball Draws– Here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3558 with a $45 million jackpot on the line: 10, 12, 21, 22, 28, and Mega 12.  Out of 134,410 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had FIVE numbers but no Mega for a prize of $44,308.  The winning ticket was sold at Safeway Fuel, South Lake Tahoe, CA 96150.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #844 with a $157 million pot on the line: 12, 17, 20, 21, 26, and Power 08.  Out of 72,257 winning tickets, the highest winners were six people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $11,714 apiece.
  79. 2022 Sunday: Let’s hope it’s a slow news weekend…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

93. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, APRIL 03, 2022

2009 Friday: The economy continues to crash and burn in the United States as another 663,000 jobs fall by the wayside thanks to the Dems having engineered the housing crisis so as to get a Democrat elected in 2008. Unemployment rate goes up to 8.5-percent which is not good, nor will it improve by much over the subsequent seven-plus years.

  15. 1915 Saturday: The Austro-Hungarians with German reinforcements begin driving the Russians back in the Carpathians.   The Russians had a unique plan that if they could penetrate through this harsh range of mountains, they might be able to knock the Hapsburgs out of the war.  Although not the strongest member of the Central Powers, the core Austrian, and Hungarian troops and not their Slavic allies were up to the task.
  16. 1916 Monday: During World War I, the horrendous battle of Verdun continues as the French mount counterattacks against recent German domains.  The city of Verdun is a fortress surrounded by a series of fortresses (sort of like Dien Bien Phu would be decades later though not as fortified) and the Germans believe if they can punch through, they might be able to bring France to its knees, possibly knock her out of the war for good.
  17. 1917 Tuesday: Arriving in Petrograd on a closed train from Switzerland, Bolshevik revolutionary Vladimir Ilyich Lenin finally arrives home.  He will soon be up to no good.  Meanwhile, World War I continues on all fronts with heavy fighting on both Western and Eastern Fronts as well as in Africa as the Allies attempt to crush the German Colonial Army in East Africa.  No matter how many times the Brits, South Africans, and now the Portuguese think they have their quarry contained, the Germans are always able to break through the encirclement.
  18. 1918 Wednesday: German troops commence landing in Finland to help their new ally as the Russian Civil War rages between White and Red forces.  Other Allied units are considering landing in eastern and norther regions to help White forces crush the Bolsheviks.  It is becoming a horrible mess.  In Austria, government officials report having received peace feelers from France.
  19. 1919 Thursday: The victorious allies hammering out the post-World War I peace in Paris, France, had sent South African General Jan Smuts to Budapest where a new Soviet-style regime had seized power.  The idea was to negotiate a peace between east and west, but it was failure, the communists had no intention of participating in anything.  All Western diplomatic missions begin pulling out and American wives of Hungarian citizens are to leave with the British.  Things are in an uproar in Eastern Europe thanks to the NEW Soviet Union.  
  20. 1922 Monday: In the USSR, Josef Stalin becomes general secretary of the Communist Party.  Lenin, suffering from poor health did not want to appoint his far more murderous comrade Stalin to this post but Stalin was ‘caretaker’ for the ailing revolutionary.  Soon, Stalin would begin consolidating his power.

  26. 1941 Thursday: Based on intelligence, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill warns Josef Stalin of the impending German invasion of the Soviet Union; however, Stalin does NOT act on it.  Meanwhile, Rasjid al-Gailani forms pro-German regime in Iraq.  Soon, they will be doing their utmost to drive the British occupiers out of their country- or so they think.  Elsewhere, British troops roll into the capital of Eritrea in hot pursuit of the Fascist Italians.
  27. 1942 Friday: The Japanese commenced their first all-out assault on U.S. and Filipino forces defending the Bataan Peninsula.  Elsewhere, the Imperial Japanese carry out a firebombing on Mandalay, the capital of Burma, killing thousands of Burmese and British nationals who haven’t yet fled for their lives.
  28. 1943 Saturday: Richard Manuel, future pianist, and vocalist with the Band[i] was born in Stratford, Ontario, Canada, on this date.  Meanwhile, a sad incident occurs in Wellington, New Zealand, when U.S. Marines got into a fight with New Zealand troops of Maori origin.  The Marines did not want them entering the servicemen’s club.
  29. 1944 Monday: British Prime Minister Winston Churchill’s obsession with the German battleship Tirpitz in a Norwegian fjord when yet another RAF strike on the vessel fails to do any damage.

  69. 2021 Saturday: COVID-19 NEWS– Rasmussen releases the results of a new poll that says a vast majority of Americans oppose any type of COVID-19 passport.  Period.   Elsewhere, a big hubbub continues in Vermont where Governor Phil Scott, R-VT, has released his plan for everyone age 16 and up and who identifies as black, Native American, or any other minority- BUT NO WHITES- can come in and receive their Chi-Vi vaccines.  As Chef Bea O’Malley of the AICPENDBLOG.COM says, ‘anytime white liberals tell black folks they should do something for their own good is when it’s time to turn tail and run like hell.’  No thank you, Governor Scott. 
  70. 2021 Saturday A: GEORGIA POLITICS– Governor Brian Kemp comes out today and before a mixed crowd of our fellow citizens lambasted Major League Baseball’s decision to pull BOTH the Major League Baseball All-Star Game and the MLB Draft.  He explains the law and urges everyone to read the law.  Even hardcore Peach State Democrats such as Senator Jon Ossoff and Stacey Abrams blasted the MLB for doing this to the state.  There is NOTHING wrong with this law.  As Governor Kemp says, ‘cancel culture must end because if you don’t think it’s NOT going to come for you, you are sadly mistaken.’
  71. 2021 Saturday B: FOREIGN NEWS/OVERSEAS NEWS– Apparently, the Biden administration is going to negotiate a nuclear deal with the belligerent Iranians in Vienna, Austria.  Good luck.   Meanwhile, the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Dwight D. Eisenhower passed through the newly reopened Suez Canal. 
  72. 2021 Saturday C: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– Mike Lindell of My Pillow fame begins airing his new special on the fraudulent 2020 Presidential Election, “Scientific Proof,” in which he points out the massive body of evidence that shows exactly how the same algorithms were applied from one end of the country to the other flipping elections using information from the 2010 U.S. Census.   It is rather mystifying (yeah, right) how the same algorithms and the same spikes at the same times occurred in each of the states the Biden-Harris campaign ‘won’ the election.  This is not good, and we must get to the truth.  Then, we must figure out how to expel a FRAUDULENT PRESIDENT from the White House.  No wonder we have a ‘Fort Pelosi’ in Washington, D.C., and no wonder they sent out a crazed Nation of Islam member yesterday to commit a criminal act so the fort could remain standing.  Just saying, folks.
  73. 2021 Saturday D: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– Texas is going to start focusing on securing its elections in the Lone Star State so Democrats won’t be able to interfere or to steal in its elections.  Good for you.  Next, 13 bipartisan states are pushing back on the Biden administration for all the insane laws they are trying to stuff down the throats of free Americans.  Moving on, recent statistics show that Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Baby Evita, aka AOC, aka Sandy Cortez, aka the Fly, DS-NY 14th congressional district, is among the least effective Democrats in Congress among their 240 Democratic members.  However, she is ranked slightly higher than House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi who we believe is ranked at number #237.   Speaking of “Mumbles” Pelosi, she is extending proxy voting until May 19 so any timid members can phone in their votes.  Speaking of voting, Wyoming passes a voting law requiring Voter ID.
  74. 2021 Saturday E: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka “Sleep-Her-Way-to-the-Top,” Harris is being pressed on holding a formal press conference on the border crisis now that she has been delegated the “Border Czar.”  No one knows where the overly mirthful “Kooky” is?   Meanwhile, Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district, says that Joe Biden focusing on the WOKE agenda is putting our national security at risk.  You had better believe it.  Next, Governor Kim Reynolds, R-IA, has signed a bill permitting its residents to carry firearms sans a permit.  Democrats are livid.  Finally, Joe Biden is still working at staffing his administration with loads more WOKE, far-left, liberal Democrats, almost all of whom are WHITE men.  Say it ain’t so.
  75. 2021 Saturday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS IV– Congressman Kevin Brady, R-TX 8th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden’s infrastructure bill will drive taxes way up while sending more American jobs overseas for good as well as lowering wages and minimizing benefits.’  Congressman Scott Perry, R-PA 10th congressional district, says that ‘most people support infrastructure but there is so much crap stuffed into the bill such as making ‘school lunches green’ that it’s a mess on steroids.  Next, President Donald J. Trump says that the (bogus) allegations launched against Congressman Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district could be a ‘smear job.’[ix]
  76. 2021 Saturday G: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS V– After Joe Biden lectured the American people as to HOW MANY people they could have in their homes on Easter Sunday, he now is taking incoming fire from the very same American people for his plans to have the entire Biden Clan- every single crooked one of them- in a big family get-together at Camp David.  There you go: liberal hypocrisy on display.  Next, there are rumors that the two underage skanks that murdered the Uber Eats driver earlier this week in Washington, D.C., and showed absolutely NO remorse are going to get a plea deal.  Lock the slut bags up.   Next, rapper DMX is in the hospital following a drug-induced heart attack.  Fine upstanding member of the community to be sure.  Finally, a North Carolina house party gone wild occurred early this morning when 3 people were shot dead, 4 wounded, and the rest in the wind.  How many mass shootings have now occurred under the Biden regime?  
  77. 2021 Saturday H: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 130,643,579 confirmed cases, +541,809, 2,844,807  confirmed deaths, +8,587, and 74,042,059 confirmed recoveries, +358,084.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,884,407 confirmed cases, up 58,026 same as yesterday’s reporting, 560,220 confirmed deaths, UP 704, and 118,737,319 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.[x] 
  78. 2021 Saturday I: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 231,707 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States– feeble old Joe, in another one-to-two weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  FROZEN FIGURES TODAY…

[i] Not sure when we will present the music of this famed Canadian American rock band but when we do, you will be the first to know.  The Band ranks among the all-time greatest rock bands of the 1960s and 1970s.  You won’t want to miss them.

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

[iii] We will be presenting Elton John’s music at some point within the next five years.  Please stay tuned for the day when we do.

[iv] 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.

[v] See previous.

[vi] Our main reference for the epic battle at Dien Bien Phu is “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, 2004, Da Capo Press.  Please seek this amazing historical work out for a concise look at the battle that ended French control of French Indochina and the birth of Vietnam.

[vii] We hope to share the music of Lynyrd Skynyrd sometime in the next decade.  At least by 2029 so please stay tuned for further news.

[viii] Coincidentally the congressional district represented by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

[ix] The Democrats ALWAYS tip their hands as to whom they fear by the bogus allegations they launch at their targets.  Anyone remember former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin?  The Democrats did EVERYTHING they could to destroy her, so terrified of her were they.

  51. 2016 Friday: Harper Lee- the author of “To Kill a Mockingbird,” died at age 89.  Elsewhere, the ‘so-called religion of peace’- Islam- strikes yet again as suicide bombers in northern Cameroon blow up at least 24 people and wound another 112 at an outdoor market.  What the f**k is wrong with Boko Haram.  Meanwhile, Israeli police are forced to shoot and kill three Palestinian jihadists in Jerusalem and the West Bank.

Bernie Sanders confirms he is going to run for president of the United States a second time.  Meanwhile, President Trump announces plans to elevate former Acting U.S. Attorney General Matthew Whitaker as deputy head of the U.S. Department of Justice.  Next, President Trump signs the order to create the U.S. Space Force, the newest branch of government that will prepare to defend the nation’s interests in the realm of space.
  55. 2020 Wednesday: Information appears that proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that multi-billionaire Michael “Mini-Mike” Bloomberg is indeed doing everything imaginable to buy the Democratic Party’s 2020 presidential nomination.  As of today, he has spent more than $400 million on network and cable TV channels as well as on radio.  What he has spent on Internet advertising is so far unknown.  Tonight, six candidates face off in the Democratic 2020 Primary Debate on NBC: Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar, and former Mayor Bloomberg.  Absent are billionaire Tom Steyer and of course, Tulsi Gabbard, whom the Democrats do NOT want.  Meanwhile, in Chicago, former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich gives a news conference on the porch of his home.  His sentence commuted to time served the day before by President Donald J. Trump, he proclaims himself a “Trump-o-Crat” and pledges to work to help others who have been unjustly punished by the Comey-led FBI.  Good for you, Mr. Governor, good for you.  Finally, President Donald Trump visits the city of Bakersfield, home of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day.
  56. 2021 Friday: Day 31 of the Biden Regime: first of all- due to growing pushback on both sides of the aisle- Joe Biden acknowledges the $15 per hour minimum wage hike may not happen anytime soon.   Next, the House Democrats demonstrate how much they hate President Donald J. Trump by their creation of a new bill- the “No Glory for Hate Act”- which will prohibit twice-impeached presidents from being celebrated, buried in Arlington National Cemetery, or having monuments and roads and the like named after them.  Wow.  Elsewhere, as the investigators investigate the Capitol Hill police officers, six of them are suspended with pay while another 35 are being scrutinized for having affiliations to President Donald J. Trump.  Kool-Aid-guzzling U.S. Army General Russell L. Honoré Ret. And chief inquisitor of the Antifa-infiltrated- and- lead Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021, is digging posthaste to uncover the evildoers behind the appalling assault on Capitol Hill, only he’s looking at those with MAGA sympathies and not at the real instigators and proponents of what happened on the dreary day when Antifa and Black Lives Matter stormed the Capitol. 
  57. 2021 Friday A: Climate ‘czar’ John F. Kerry vows tough stance on all climate evildoers in the U.S. as the United States rejoins the Paris Climate Accord, yet another selling out of the United States to globalists.   Meanwhile, in the ‘post-COVID-19 world,’ the TSA announces plans to hire another 6,000 agents so the liberals can increase the numbers of their secret police at all airports across the nation.  Man, that Chi-Vi is permitting our government to skip down the totalitarian path.  Elsewhere, in the Free World of Florida, Governor Ron DeSantis, Republican, proposes sweeping election reforms in his state.   Finally, the Minneapolis Police Department are beefing up security both at the courthouse and around the city as the Derek Chauvin trial looms on the horizon. 
  58. 2021 Friday B: Boko Haram thugs in Niger kidnap 27 students from a boarding school and carry them off into the jungle.  The SOBS must be short on wives, again.  Next, the Kremlin warns the West to pull back from sanctions related to Alexei Navalny’s prison sentence, ‘or else.’  Speaking of thugs, the ‘paradise of Iran’ demands the U.S. repeal and remove ALL sanctions on their country imposed by President Donald J. Trump.  Don’t worry, grand ayatollah, the U.S. is going to rejoin the flawed nuclear deal the Obama-Biden administration participated in with your country.  Speaking of this deal, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blasts the Biden-Harris administration for reentering this deal.  Under President Trump, the Iranians were on their knees begging for mercy.  Now, it’s back to business as usual. 
  59. 2021 Friday C: Meanwhile, the U.S. State Department imposes travel sanctions on 43 Belorussian officials and bigwigs over the actions of their corrupt government.  The Biden administration loves Iran but wants to punish Russia and Belorussia.  WTF?  Next, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is attempting to rally ‘quad democracies’ to pushback against a belligerent communist China.  Why?  The Biden Family and many members of his administration LOVE the Chi-Coms.  Must be just for show.
  60. 2021 Friday D: RINO Senator Jon Thune says the ‘GOP is engaging in ‘cancel culture’ by going after the losers who voted to impeach President Donald J. Trump as well as the RINO senators who voted to convict President Donald J. Trump.’  Will these losers ever learn their flipping lessons?  It appears not.  The American people will have to show them.  Meanwhile, the U.S. begins admitting the first batch of illegal aliens begging for asylum into the country even though south Texas mayors are begging the federal government not to do this because they have no support with which, they can provide them.  Let ‘em freeze.   Elsewhere, the feds are pushing to kick the National Rifle Association’s top lawyer off the bankruptcy case.   Finally, good citizens are working alongside police in Oakland’s Chinatown to catch the thug or thugs who have been attacking Chinese citizens.  We still suspect when the culprit is caught, it will be another minority.  Speaking of the Chinese, Great Britain is welcoming in thousands of Hong Kong’s citizens who are escaping the crackdown by the thugs in Beijing.  In the next five years, London could welcome in as many as 300,000 people along with their dependents.
  61. 2021 Friday E: ERCOT says the catastrophic collapse of the power grid in Texas which led to massive blackouts would have occurred anyway even without the severe weather storm.  Still, the operators have gotten the power system up-and-running.  What the heck has happened to nuclear energy?  It’s safe, dependable, cheap, and lasts forever.  All we need do is to find a way to recycle used nuclear fuel so we can reuse it.   Elsewhere, Dolly Parton nixes the idea of putting a statue dedicated to her in the Tennessee State Capitol Building.  Who would want such an honor in this world of left-wing pansy cancel culture?  Revered today, torn down and defaced tomorrow.  Finally, doctors at Johns Hopkins University says, ‘herd immunity for the Chi-Com Flu can be achieved by April 2021.’
  62. 2021 Friday F: We learn that the Wuhan Institute of Virology has received U.S. money to study dangerous diseases including the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Speaking of the Chinese Virus, millions of vaccines for this lab-engineered malady continue to linger in freezer facilities across the country.  Joe Biden says ‘NO such vaccine existed when he came into office’ but we know that a man who asks his wife, ‘where we’re at’ every day he awakens in the White House residence does not know very much, including that he and his wife received their vaccines ahead of his taking the oath of office.  Speaking of the Chi-Com pandemic, the Baby Evita- aka AOC, aka Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Sandy Cortez (birth name) is jumping on the anti-Andrew “Killer” Cuomo bandwagon and much like NYC Mayor Bill Di Blasio, driving the dagger into the beleaguered Empire State governor.   Wow.  Just like piranha fish.  
  63. 2021 Friday G: The American Civil Liberties Union asks SCOTUS to declare all-male draft ‘unconstitutional.’  Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian files for divorce from entertainment mogul Kanye West.  Next, a day after its passage, a federal court strikes down South Carolina’s abortion bill, one that prohibits abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected.  The bill is designed to prohibit abortion chop shops such as Planned Parenthood from operating in minority communities where they murder mostly minority unborn children, sell the fetal body parts to scientists, Satanists, and other sick f**ks, and then donate money back to the Democratic Socialist Party of the United States.  WTF?  Meanwhile, Representative Mark Green says, ‘the Biden immigration plan is pretty flipping crazy.’  Amen.  Illegal alien hunting licenses, anyone?  Next, Representative Blaine Luetkemeyer, R-MO., to Newsmax TV: “Follow the Trump template to restore the economy.”   Finally, following Nikki Haley’s failed attempt to meet with President Donald J. Trump at Mar-A-Lago after BLASTING the 45th president and the man who made her ambassador to the United Nations, Senator Lindsey Graham has embarked on a peace mission to see the president.  Interesting Note- Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has ordered all flags to fly at half-mast for Rush Limbaugh.
  64. 2021 Friday H: Here are the numbers for the COVID-19 global pandemic, the planet first: 109,901,931 confirmed cases, +288,143, 2,430,096, confirmed deaths, +8,615, and 61,879,542 confirmed recoveries, +203,850.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 28,100,922 confirmed cases, up 70,592 from yesterday’s reporting, 495,180 confirmed deaths, UP 2,253, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries same as it’s been since ‘Pro-China Joe’ moved into the White House.  NOTE- in the White House 31 DAYS, apparently the U.S. will NO longer report the number of recoveries.  Shame on you, Chi-Com Joe.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 168,862 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Fellow Americans, JOE BIDEN LIED AND PEOPLE HAVE DIED.
  65. 2021 Friday 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: 3,514,246 confirmed cases, 48,411 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,460 confirmed cases, 428 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 335,340 confirmed cases, 4,868 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the United States: South Carolina- currently, they have 497,937 confirmed cases, 8,213 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 741,934 confirmed cases, 5,509 confirmed deaths, and 688,184 confirmed recoveries.     
  66. 2021 Friday J: For a laugh, let’s look at the Chi-Coms’ numbers- they say they have 89,816 cases, +10 from last week, 4,636 confirmed deaths (same as two weeks ago), and 84,696 confirmed recoveries, +46 from last week.  This, of course, is ALL BULLS**T.  When we had contacts in Hong Kong, they said ‘times the numbers by 100, 150, or 200 times and you would get a somewhat closer picture.’  Maggot-eating scum.   NOTE- communists lie.  They ALWAYS LIE.  They lie about everything.  They cover up dastardly deeds like that POS moronic New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo and when threatened with exposure, they begin making threats.  Scumbags, all of them scumbags.
  67. 2021 Friday K:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,494.32, UP 0.98 points (+0.003%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,874.46, UP 9.11 points (+0.066%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,906.71, DOWN 7.26 points (-0.19%).  Although stocks are jumping up and down, we still anticipate the collapse of the U.S. economy as long as (1) businesses don’t reopen in BLUE states; (2) Joe Biden allows the Third World to flood into the United States; (3) economic idiots are running the show in the ‘Biden administration;’ and (4) fossil fuel production is collapsing thanks to Green New Deal policies being implemented by the frigging Democratic-Socialists.
  68. 2021 Friday J: The price of GOLD is $1,783.10 per troy oz., +5.70 (+0.32%) while the price of SILVER is $27.37 per troy ounce, +0.12 (+0.43%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,282.20 per troy oz, -10.90 (-0.84%) while the price of COPPER is $4.07 per pound, -0.01 (-0.17%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,379.80 per troy oz, +21.00 (+0.89%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $59.01 per barrel, -0.23 (-0.39%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros while one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.  One-dollar U.S. = 0.000018 Bitcoin.  Next, one U.S. greenback = 73.95 Russian rubles.  In contrast, one Washington dollar equals 3.75 Saudi Riyal.  Stay tuned for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1635 with a $20 million pot up for grabs.  Here are the numbers- 27, 32, 47, 50, 53, and Mega 04.  Out of 52,450 winning tickets, the highest winners were 36 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $421 apiece.

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

Saturday, February 19, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

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

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

[iii] Not exactly sure when we will begin promoting the music of Black Sabbath but when we do we will definitely follow them with AC/DC, the wild and wooly and definitely demonic Australian rock band.

[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.

  62. 2016 Wednesday: Blaming an El Nino-caused drought, the Venezuelan government orders 100 malls to close early so as to conserve electricity.  The reason the nation has no electricity is because of the sham of socialism.  Meanwhile, Boko Haram continues running amok in West Africa.  In Nigeria, two female suicide bombers attack a refugee camp killing at least 58 people while in Cameroon, bombers there kill at least six people and wound another 30.  All in the name of the ‘religion of peace’ as President George W. Bush once called it- Islam.  Elsewhere, after one of its citizens returns home from Venezuela, communist China reports its first case of the Zika virus.

  65. 2018 Saturday: The Israeli military shoots down an unmanned aerial vehicle that crossed into the country’s airspace.  Upon further inspection, it’s clear the UAV was manufactured in Iran, so the Israeli Air Force goes into action.  Crossing the border into Syria, Israeli warplanes attack Syrian and Iranian targets at the Tiyas Syrian air base in Homs Governate lighting them up with glee.  Of course, Damascus and Tehran express outrage and anger.  It is what it is.
  66. 2019 Sunday: The Catholic Church breathes a sigh of relief as an investigation into the U.S. Southern Baptist Church implicates 400 members with more than 700 victims.  Meanwhile, a study conducted around the world claims that insect populations worldwide are collapsing which could lead to a ‘catastrophic collapse of the world’s ecosystems,’ what with a 40% decline and a 30% on the endangered list.  Finally, Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar, Democrat, announces her presidential run.
  67. 2020 Monday: The great leader, Xi Jinping, slaps on a face mask and visits a hospital in Beijing visiting sick people.  He demands ‘more decisive measures’ to combat the virus he claims came out of the Wuhan wet market when in fact, it really came out of the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  At the time of this writing, we are unclear as to whether the growing pandemic was created with purpose in the lab or is yet another freak of nature disease to emanate in communist China and then infects the rest of the world.   Meanwhile, Beijing’s sock puppet, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus- the head of the World Health Organization- says that ‘foreign cases of COVID-19 could be the tip of the iceberg.’  What did YOU know and WHEN did YOU know it?
  68. 2021 Wednesday:  First, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, blasts the World Health Organization for doing what everyone expected it would do, namely, cover up for their masters in the Chinese Communist Party.  Dr. Tedros is a bought-and-paid-for, Third World ‘medical’ hack.  Speaking of which, a recent poll says that ‘one-third of Americans are skeptical of the Wuhan Virus vaccine.’  We sure the hell are.  Meanwhile, the FDA grants Eli Lilly the go ahead to begin using its combo Chi-Vi vaccine/antibody treatment in the war against the Chi-Com Virus running amok in the world.  Speaking of Chi-Coms, Connecticut police are investigating the shooting death of graduate student 26-year-old Kevin Jiang whose lifeless bullet-ridden corpse was discovered over the weekend.  
  69. 2021 Wednesday A: Elsewhere, Joe Biden’s plan to re-engage in the United Nations ‘Human Rights’ Commission is seen as little more than a hollow gesture by the fading-fast 46th president.  Meanwhile, Alabama has a bill pending that would prohibit hormone drug treatments for tranny kids.  We always say, send these kids to qualified psychiatrists so they can get their heads on straight instead of falling prey to liberal insanity.  Finally, the CDC endorses ‘double-masking’ (these people are obviously invested in companies manufacturing PPE); however, we recall when Dr. Tony Fauci said, ‘masks don’t work’ just as we recall him suggesting ‘everyone might have to wear goggles,’ just as we remember him telling an inquisitive reporter that it’s fine to meet people on Grindr and Tinder for casual sex hook-ups.  WTF, Dr. Fauci?
  70. 2021 Wednesday B: Stephen King is putting up $6.5 million to help young authors get published.  Next, former Colorado Republican Senator Cory Gardner is going to head a new GOP Super PAC with which to help the party win back the House and Senate in 2022 and beyond.   Meanwhile, Congressman Ed Buck calls out the Democrats for resisting a proposal with which ALL members of Congress would recite the Pledge of Allegiance before every panel meeting.  Of course, the Democrats won’t allow this being the Anti-American scumbags that they are.  Speaking of anti-Americanism, Joe Biden’s immigration policies (or lack of) are causing mayhem along the southern border as tens of thousands of illegal aliens try to storm into the country.  We encourage the disconnected president to begin laying in minefields to stop the invasion in its tracks.   Elsewhere, the U.S. Senate sets February 22-23 as the date for hearings for Joe Biden’s attorney general nominee, Merrick Garland.
  71. 2021 Wednesday C: NASA awards SpaceX a $332 million contract to build the infrastructure for a return to the lunar surface.  In other news, Fox News bozo Chris Wallace says, ‘the impeachment managers are really laying out a compelling case in the trial of former President Donald J. Trump.’  And you wonder why people NO longer watch Fox News.  Speaking of the ‘impeachment trial,’ the Dems are once again harnessing a major team of losers to prosecute the case against Donald Trump which is why we are supporting the National Republican Congressional Committee’s bid to beat 47 Democrats so as to reclaim the House in 2022.  Everyone knows Jaime Raskin is a moron as is Teddy Lieu, David Cicilline, and Joaquin Castro, among others.  Castro was babbling on about Trump’s claims of a ‘stolen election’ noting no Democrat would ever do that when we know defeated Anthony Brindisi in New York 22 was crying about Dominion Voting Systems fraud in his loss to Claudia Tenney.  Wah, wah, wah!
  72. 2021 Wednesday D: The CEO of Microsoft says that BIG TECH requires clearer laws as to what can and cannot be said online meaning ‘WHAT CAN WE CENSOR WITHOUT REPERCUSSIONS?’  Elsewhere, lowlife rocker Bruce Springsteen faces drunken driving charges in the Garden State.  Poor Bruce.  Elsewhere, right on time, a Georgia county launches a probe into President Donald J. Trump’s attempted election theft in the Peach State.  Wow.  Meanwhile, a judge denies Ghislaine Maxwell’s attorneys bid to keep an excerpt from a 2016 deposition sealed.   Next, officials in San Francisco and around the Bay Area are trying to figure out where a massive oil spill in the Bay originated.   Finally, people are shocked that Republican Senator Bill Cassidy of Louisiana voted with the Democrats and five other RINOs to move the impeachment trial against President Trump forward yesterday.  He’s a goner.  And Democrats should remember this: what goes around can come around and we expect to see Barack Hussein Obama impeached and his wife prevented from ever seeking office…
  73. 2021 Wednesday E: After Mark Cuban- owner of the NBA franchise the Dallas Mavericks- said that he would NO longer play the National Anthem prior to games in the country that made this scurrilous c**ksucker wealthy, the NBA said, “Yes you will.”  All teams will play the anthem before every game which is longstanding league policy.  Meanwhile, we learn that another leftwing POS- this one Kamala Harris- joked about killing both President Donald J. Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.  Newt Gingrich says the Democrats are making the case for Donald Trump in this exceedingly boring second impeachment which is good because people are growing angrier with these scumbag Democrats by the day. 
  74. 2021 Wednesday F: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 107,166,785 confirmed cases, +523,266, 2,348,421, confirmed deaths, +17,582, and 59,908,386 confirmed recoveries, +358,991.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 27,485,502 confirmed cases, up 103,724 from yesterday’s reporting, 474,034 confirmed deaths, UP 3,374, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP- UNKNOWN- same number as the last two week’s number- WTF.  NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 144,639 CHI-VI DEATHS.  Joe, you said you had a plan- where the f**k is it?  In Beijing?  YOU are NOT our president, sir.
  75. 2021 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-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,441,427 confirmed cases, 44,995 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,531 confirmed cases, 418 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 327,397 confirmed cases, 4,635 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Arizona: currently, they have 789,245 confirmed cases, 14,462 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 703,719 confirmed cases, 5,216 confirmed deaths, and 628,004 confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other country, shall we?  Spain: 3,023,601 confirmed cases, 63,704 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.

  77. 2021 Wednesday I: Rush Limbaugh’s staffers encourage his hundreds of millions of fans across the world to pray for a remission of his cancer and for a swift recovery.  All of us are praying for your health, Rush.  God be with you.  Next, Donald Trump Jr. tells Newsmax TV that the ‘Dems are trying to scare ‘outsiders’ away from Washington, D.C., and politics.’  Moving on, Roger Stone told Newsmax that CNN’s latest report is ‘Russian Witch Hunt 2.0.’  Elsewhere, Michigan Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey, GOP, stands by his statement that the Capitol Hill Riots- in which Antifa and Black Lives Matter led the way with Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s blessings- allegedly- were a hoax to blame Trump supporters.  We know what he’s saying- it was pre-planned and pre-engineered so as to coincide with the President’s speech on January 6 from the White House.  Evidence continues pointing in this direction which is WHY the Dems screech louder that what Republicans say are ALL LIES!  When the truth comes out, we know exactly where it’s going to lead…
  78. 2021 Wednesday J: As the Democrats got the impeachment three-ring circus underway, most Republican senators were once again, indifferent and/or immune to all the blubbering, crying, sniveling, snot-dripping BS the Dems spent all day making tens of millions of Americans sick.  It is an embarrassing freak show what with Rhode Island Congressman David Cicilline talking about an “armed insurrection.’  Look, former Mafia mouthpiece, there were no weapons in the hands of the left-wing rioters.   Congressman Matt Gaetz, R-FL, said the “Dems’ tears are not enough to sway anyone.’  Good for you, congressman.  Elsewhere, the CDC announces that those who are completely vaccinated against the Beijing Bat Bug do not need to quarantine.  Next, Joe Biden’s budget deficit through January is a whopping $735.7 billion.   Finally, former ICE bigwig Tom Homan says that ‘Joe Biden has made the entire nation into one big sanctuary nation.’  We’re telling you; people are going to push back against this tidal wave of illegals.
  79. 2021 Wednesday K: The Chi-Coms have got a Chi-Com lander in the atmosphere on Mars.  In a couple of months, the Chi-Coms will attempt to get it to the surface of the Red Planet where we hope it will blow up- watch it take COVID-19 to Mars!  Will they blame it on the Americans?  Meanwhile, the United Arab Emirates have a similar robotic craft arriving on scene while the U.S. has another arriving soon.   Elsewhere, Joe Biden visited the Pentagon today to confer with Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin where they plotted strategy to save the planet from climate change, the Chi-Vi, and of course, RIGHT WING EXTREMISM.  Left-wing extremism, A-Okay.   Finally, the Biden administration has suspended indefinitely the ‘forced transfer’ of TikTok- the Chi-Com intelligence gathering social media ap to Walmart and Oracle in yet another tip-of-the-hat to Beijing.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

It is not like Fotheringay was around for a long time, yet, since Sandy Denny was in the guiding light behind the group, they recorded loads of music.  Sadly, Sandy died young and hubby Trevor Lucas followed a couple of decades later.  Still, record companies keep music stuffed away in the vaults so they decided, let’s combine everything together, add the unreleased material and boom-bam, we have a final (or so we might think) offering entitled, “Nothing More- the Collected Fotheringay,” which came out on March 27, 2015.  It is difficult to locate this collection but there’s always Discogs, AllMusic, eBay, and perhaps even overseas sites such as Amazon UK.  Seek it out and you will be glad you did should you locate it because Sandy had an angelic voice, and her songwriting skills were mesmerizing.  You will be glad you found this one if you do because it is delightful.

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

Thursday, February 10, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

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…


[i] We presented the music of the Flying Burrito Brothers beginning Sunday, 23-February-2014 and concluded our presentation on Thursday, 06-March-2014.

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

[iii] We will be presenting Elton John’s music at some point within the next five years.  Please stay tuned for the day when we do.

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

[v] Could it be that Obama set this government agency up so it could engineer the ‘Russia collusion scam’ less than a year later.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

58. 2021 Friday A: And so, it begins: Federal prosecutors seek Donald Trump Jr. for ‘questioning.’ Questioning for what, pray tell? Meanwhile, a Trump deputy in the White House is reassuring staffers in the era of Cancel Culture that they will be ‘okay,’ even as Harvard is on the edge of bowing to its students and stripping Kayleigh McEnany of her advanced law degree.

  54. 2018 Monday: Protests marking the seventh anniversary of the revolution in Tunis, Tunisia, turn violent as people begin protesting the current government.  Elsewhere, the Turkish government threatens to take actions against the U.S.-backed Syrian Border Security Force while the government of Bashar al-Assad threatens to extinguish all U.S. operations within his crappy country.  Neither does anything.  Meanwhile, as a former CIA officer tries to fly out of New York, authorities swoop in and arrest the POS Jerry Chun Shing-Lee on charges of espionage for- you guessed it- communist China.  After he left the Central Intelligence Agency, he retained all manner of info in notebooks and handed it over to his handlers.
  55. 2019 Tuesday: LGBTQIA+ activists accuse the government of Chechnya, a well-known place of ‘tolerance’ of a pogrom against gays what with 40 detained and two slain.  Meanwhile, a witness in the trial of Mexican drug lord, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman claims that former Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto took a bribe of $100 million from the cartel to look the other way.  Elsewhere, South Korean officials announce that North Korean officials will be visiting the United States to discuss setting up a second summit between President Donald J.

  56. 2020 Wednesday: Multi-instrumentalist with the British band Kaleidoscope- Chris Darrow- died on this date.  Elsewhere, CNN reports that a Delta Airlines jetliner approaching LAX dumped fuel during its descent which fell on local schools.  At least 60 or more students were rushed to the hospital for treatment.  The authorities are investigating the incident.  Meanwhile, Sudanese government forces announce they have quelled a violent mutiny by members of its armed forces in the capital city of Khartoum.   
  57. 2021 Friday: A recent poll says that 9 out of 10 Americans oppose the Capitol Hill riots of January 6, the ones in which, Antifa infiltrated its commandoes amongst supporters of the 45th president to discredit them, in much the same way they have since the Charlottesville clashes between Antifa and white supremacists, BOTH groups we believe were set in motion by ONE entity: the Chi-Coms via their stooges in the Democratic Party.   Meanwhile, drooling House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi announces she is appointing retired U.S. Army General Russell Honoré- of Hurricane Katrina fame- to lead a task force to investigate how to transform the Capitol Building from a ‘soft target’ into a ‘hard one.’  One of the things she can do is not to tell Capitol Hill police officers to stand aside and motion Antifa thugs inside.  Furthermore, Madam Speaker cannot say when the second impeachment trial for President Trump will begin.  Next, lawmakers author a bi-partisan bill to honor slain Capitol Hill police officer Brian Sicknick.  God bless him.  
  58. 2021 Friday A: And so, it begins: Federal prosecutors seek Donald Trump Jr. for ‘questioning.’   Questioning for what, pray tell?  Meanwhile, a Trump deputy in the White House is reassuring staffers in the era of Cancel Culture that they will be ‘okay,’ even as Harvard is on the edge of bowing to its students and stripping Kayleigh McEnany of her advanced law degree.  Next, Trump campaign lawyer Jenna Ellis tells Newsmax TV that ‘this impeachment is no different’ and that it’s an ‘abuse of the U.S. Constitution.’  Meanwhile, Ric Grenell tells Newsmax TV that the ‘D.C. media has switched from the news to advocacy for all left-wing causes.’  Rudy Giuliani believes it’s all a scheme to prevent #45 from running for office again.  Finally, also to Newsmax TV, Dick Morris- famed political strategist and consultant- says that ‘impeachment and the 25th Amendment are watering down the presidency.’  NO- the AICPENDBLOG.COM believes the Democrats and the RINOS are trying to replace the presidency with a parliamentary system in which the party in power chooses who will be the figurehead.
  59. 2021 Friday B: New York State news- a new bill in Albany would make it illegal for New Yorkers to own or buy body armor.  Why?  Elsewhere in New York City, we now learn that thanks to the criminal mismanagement by Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo and addle-brained NYC Mayor Bill Di Blasio, more than 372,000 private businesses have been destroyed in the Big Apple, never to return, many of them in professional foodservice and hospitality. 
  60. 2021 Friday C: Due to ‘security threats’ in Washington, D.C., the Inauguration Day rehearsal for ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden has been pushed back to Monday. We learn that J-Lo and Lady Gaga are going to be among the left-wing performers celebrating the ‘victory’ of the incoming senile 46th ‘president.’  Next, according to Rush Limbaugh, the feds are rushing 25,000 troops into Washington, D.C. to prevent against the expected (Antifa-caused) violence on Wednesday, January 20.  (According to the talk show mega-giant, this is more troops than are currently station in BOTH Iraq and Afghanistan).  Speaking of the riots, the FBI reports that the Capitol Hill mobs planned to assassinate leaders.  Again, this sounds like Antifa and BLM human garbage, not Trump supporters.  Meanwhile, Mr. Biden chooses former FDA Chief David Kessler to head Operation Warp Speed. 
  61. 2021 Friday D: In a peculiar move, Oklahoma Senator James Lankford, a Republican, apologizes to black Tulsans for having opposed the certification of “President-elect Pro-China Joe” Biden.  Why?  What was racist about questioning the certification?  Dimwit. Next, the media appears to have twisted the remarks of Senator Tommy Tuberville, R-Alabama, in suggesting a delay on Biden’s certification.   
  62. 2021 Friday E: Elsewhere, a new poll shows that a vast majority of Republicans and swing state voters favor hiring U.S. workers before hiring illegal aliens.  Next, the Wyoming Republican Party is unhappy with Congresswoman Liz Cheney, one of their own, who was among the 10 RINO Republicans to vote for the SECOND IMPEACHMENT OF PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP.  (Note- those 10 representatives and four of their counterparts in the U.S. Senate- Lisa Murkowski, RINO-Alaska, Ben Sasse, RINO-Nebraska, Pat Toomey, RINO-Pennsylvania, and Mitt Romney, RINO-Utah, we believe will make it onto the list of nominees for the Fourth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award to be awarded in January 2022).
  63. 2021 Friday F: Fossilized ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden announces his COVID-19/Stimulus Plan: first, $20 billion for a national vaccination program.  Second, $50 billion for expanded testing, treatment, and tracing programs.  Third, $2,000 stimulus checks for all illegal aliens and American citizens.  Fourth and final, $15 minimum wage for federal entry level jobs.  Economist Stephen Moore says that the final peg of Beijing Joe’s stimulus plan will cost ‘4 million additional American jobs.’  WTF?  Next, the U.S. Secret Service is telling its officers in the run-up to Inauguration Day to remain ‘professional’ and ‘non-partisan.’  Meanwhile, the IRS announces it’s behind on 7 million tax returns from last year all because of COVID-19.
  64. 2021 Friday G: Russia cites the U.S. withdrawal from the Open Skies Treaty as its reason for leaving the agreement.  In Great Britain, it would appear that Mask Sharia is on the way there as the British government says, ‘people may have to wear masks forever.’  Wow.  Coming soon to a country near you?  Elsewhere, Dunkin’ Donuts has created a new biodegradable straw.  Congratulations.  Next, a Mickey Mantle baseball card sold for $5.2 million setting an all-time record.  Elsewhere, Joanne Roberts, widow of Mr. Rogers, dies at age 92.  Meanwhile, President Trump plans to hold an event as outgoing president on Inauguration Day at same time senile Old Joe is scheduled to place his quivering hand atop a Bible.

Gov. Duncan of the Peach State snivels to reporters that the ‘Georgia statehouse is absolutely less safe now because of Donald Trump.’  Lt. Gov. Duncan- you should not have worked to throw the election to “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his Chi-Com masters who now are YOUR masters.
  69. 2021 Friday L: Currently, the feds are investigating 37 people for their part in the deaths that occurred during the Capitol Hill Riots of January 6.  Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, she whose pendulous breasts droop down to her waist, says, ‘there will be prosecutions for ALL House members who aided the (Antifa/Black Lives Matter) ‘Trump mob’ in storming the building.  We guess this means that YOU, Madam Speaker, will stand at the head of the line seeing as how YOU and ONLY YOU are in charge of the Capitol Hill PD.  Steven Sund, outgoing Capitol Hill police chief begged for help on at least SIX occasions with no help coming which means YOU stopped help from coming which means BLOOD is on YOUR HANDS.  We await YOUR prosecution!

  73. 2021 Friday P: The government of Morocco awards President Donald J. Trump the Order of Mohammad, the nation’s highest decoration, for his work in creating a framework of peace for Arab nations and Israel.  The ceremony occurred at the White House in a private ceremony.  Congratulations, Mr. President.  Let’s see if your successor keeps the framework of the Abraham Accords in place or tosses them on the rubbish heap and returns to brown-nosing the Palestinians.  Elsewhere, One America News reports growing evidence that foreign nations such as communist China interfered in our elections, NOT just in the 2020 Presidential Election but also in several state elections.  WHY aren’t the liberals braying about ‘ELECTION INTERFERENCE?’  Because we believe Beijing and their bought-and-paid-for stooges in the Democratic Party and among the RINO wing of the GOP conspired with them to deny President Trump his much-deserved second term.   Meanwhile, Norway reports 11 deaths connected to the vaccine for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.
  74. 2022 Saturday: Stick around for the latest…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next live effort by Fairport Convention was the wonderful “Off the Desk” (June 14, 2006). As always, these musical veterans deliver a powerful live show that sees them draw millions of fans to their music year after year.  People hunger for the OLD music because much of the new music- ahem, like Maroon Five, the Jonas Brothers, and other twits SUCKS. The band included virtuoso Andy Guttridge (acoustic guitars), Ric Sanders (violins), Dave Pegg (acoustic and electric basses, and tenor mandola), Simon Nichol (guitars and vocals), Gerry Conway (drums), and Chris Leslie (mandolins, fiddles, cellos, and flutes).  The two discs contain 22 classic tunes as only this veteran band can deliver which is why we encourage everyone to rush out to their favorite record shop and pick it up.  You will be glad you did, that we guarantee.

(Note- the AICPENDBLOG.COM won’t cover the bogus Olympics nor will we speak of them. It’s akin to covering the 1936 Berlin Summer Olympics. You just don’t do that).

Trump.  When asked if HE will accept the results of the election, Mr. Trump refuses a direct answer and says, ‘we’ll see.’  This of course draws outrage from the press and the anti-Trumpers but folks, it is what it is- no one asked Hillary if she would accept the results of the election and as we would later learn- she wouldn’t because she set the whole Trump-Russian collusion scam in motion, something the world would learn four years later.
  53. 2017 Thursday: Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello, meeting with President Donald Trump at the White House about a month after Hurricane Maria, described the situation in the island territory as “catastrophic”; Trump rated the White House response to the disaster as a “10.”

  56. 2020 Monday: Recent polls continue suggesting that “Pro-China Joe” Biden is going to smoke President Donald J. Trump on Election Day.  Okay.  Other polls such as a recent NBC questionnaire proclaim that 52-percent of the American people compared to a measly 44-percent want to see Democrats control both houses of Congress.  Uh, okay.  We shall see.  Elsewhere, billionaire Robert F. Smith- the man who paid off the student loan debt of Morehouse College grads last year admitted to a scheme to cheat the IRS of taxes for 15 years.  He’s in trouble but his defense will be that the IRS is ‘racist.’  Meanwhile, DNI John Ratcliffe say there is ‘no intelligence’ behind the recent release of the Hunter Biden laptop showing it was another ‘Russian scheme’ as California Congressman Adam Schiff, Democrat, has been screeching over the weekend.  NO one is disputing what’s on the laptop is untrue; no, they are upset that it’s coming out now.  Remember: whatever the Democrats accuse others of doing is what they themselves are guilty of committing.
  57. 2020 Monday A: President Donald J. Trump hammers Dr. Tony Fauci and other ‘idiots’ for their Chi-Vi alarmism.  Unfortunately, the COVID-19 responses by many Democratic governors have destroyed the economies in their states.  We should have initiated a balanced approach.  We remember back in March how our medical professionals dismissed the disease whereas now, it is the destroyer of the world.   Elsewhere, “Pro-China Joe” Biden attacks Hungary as being no better than the totalitarian regimes of Belarus which leads the Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjártó says that ‘Joe had better worry about his Ukrainian problem before bitching out Hungary.’   Speaking about “Pro-China Joe,” the Wall Street Journal- in an analysis of the former vice-president’s economic proposals- says that by 2030, household median income in the United States will fall by $6,500.  Don’t want it.  Elsewhere, White House Chief  Mark Meadows says that a bias among social media bigwigs does indeed exist, and it leans to the DEMOCRATS because they are showing their hand when it comes to concealing and covering up Hunter Biden’s laptop.
  58. 2020 Monday B: U.S. Senate Republicans urge Pope Francis- the man in charge of the Deep Church- to hammer the Chi-Coms over their persecution of religious freedoms and for myriad human rights abuses.   Meanwhile, U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi say they are close to a “COVID-19 relief deal.”   Elsewhere, the New Yorker suspends Trump-hater writer and CNN’s chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin for having whipped out his dingus during a Zoom call between him, New Yorker staffers, and radio station WYNC Radio personnel.  The event occurred last week and the excuse the moron gave to various news outlets was that he ‘thought he was off-air.’  He gave no explanation as to WHY he yanked his pecker out in the first place.  We suspect he must be proud of his junk.  What a punk.  He should be terminated.  When will #MeToo allegations hit this piece of work?  Update: we now hear that Mr. Toobin was doing more than sharing his dong with whomever he was intending to share it with- what a sick f**k- he must be close to Anthony Weiner.  He apologized to his wife, family, his bosses, and maybe even to God today.
  59. 2020 Monday C: As for the Beijing Bug, here are the numbers for the CHI-VI, you know, COVID-19 Chinese Bat Flu Virus Crisis, the pandemic they started but blame on the U.S.:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 40,272,089 confirmed cases, +468,527, 1,116,167, confirmed deaths, +4,453, and 27,558,672 confirmed recoveries, +204,959.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Xi Jinping Bat Flu pandemic: 8,293,975 confirmed cases, up 52,040 from yesterday’s reporting, 223,426 confirmed deaths, UP 548, and 5,255,335 confirmed recoveries, UP 25,350.  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: 878,346 confirmed cases, 16,979 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 14,183 confirmed cases, 187 confirmed deaths, and 11,044 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 102,403 confirmed cases, 2,339 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: New Mexico- currently, they have 37,302 confirmed cases, 935 confirmed deaths, 19,894 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham for reporting recoveries; how about encouraging other governors to do likewise?  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife have moved there: 304,635 confirmed cases, 2,260 confirmed deaths, and 272,768 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at another nation: India: they have 7,594,736 confirmed cases of the CHI-VI, 115,236 confirmed deaths and 6,730,617 confirmed recoveries.
  60. 2020 Monday D: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 28,195.42, DOWN 410.89 points (-1.44%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  11,478.88, DOWN 192.67 points (-1.65%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,426.92, DOWN 56.89 points (-1.63%).  Price of GOLD: $1,905.90 per troy oz., -5.80 (-0.30%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $24.49 per troy oz., -0.208 (-0.84%).  Price of PLATINUM: $858.50 per troy oz., -5.00 (-0.58%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,357.50 per troy oz., +15.20 (+0.65%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.08 per #, -0.006 (-0.19%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $40.64, -0.19 (-0.47%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.68 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.85 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.84 Afghan afghani.
  61. 2020 Monday E: We have two NFL games today/tonight: (14) Kansas City Chiefs, 26 (5-1) @ the Buffalo Bills, 17 (4-2) and then the regular Monday Night Football game: (15) Arizona Cardinals, 38 (4-2) @ the Dallas Cowboys, 10 (2-4).  What the heck has happened to the Cowboys?  Tony Romo, please come back!
  62. 2020 Monday F: As everyone should know, Democratic Party presidential nominee has put a lid on his campaign until Thursday night’s third and final debate in Nashville, Tennessee, at Belmont University, the one hosted by left-wing hack Kristen Welker.  The president, however, is out pounding the trail, had two big rallies today, first in Prescott, Arizona, and then in Tucson.  Both of them were attended by tens of thousands of people and the energy was overwhelming.  Amazing.  They must be pumping the blood of aborted children into the veins of “Pro-China Joe” Biden if no one is going to see him for three-and-a-half days.  As for Kooky Kamala, NO one knows where she is or what the heck she’s doing- maybe spending quality time with Willie Brown?
  63. 2020 Monday G: The Presidential Debate Commission announces it has changed the rules and that when President Donald J. Trump and former VP “Pro-China Joe” Biden tango on Thursday night in Nashville, Tennessee, at Belmont College, they will mute the mics if either candidate disobeys the rules.  We suspect that when the commander-in-chief attempts to bring up Hunter Biden’s laptop and moderator Kristen Welker cuts his mic that perhaps the sitting president will pull out a “Mr. Microphone” (available at Kohl’s for $30.00) and continue saying whatever he’s going to say.  YOU don’t cut off a president, Ms. Welker.   Speaking of Hunter Biden’s laptop, Democrats at all levels and their allies in the Fake News are calling Hunter’s laptop part of yet another Vladimir Putin ‘disinformation’ campaign working on behalf of Trump.  These people are sick.
  64. 2020 Monday H: In Los Angeles, California, legendary guitarist and band leader, Spencer Davis, died from pneumonia at age 81.

We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[vii]   
  66. 2021 Tuesday A: JOE BIDEN TO DONALD J. TRUMP COVID-19 DEATHS- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 434,556 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop him.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump with 30,488 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths.  Hey, Joe!  Explain to us how with numerous vaccines and the push for boosters atop them YOU have more deaths than your ‘evil’ predecessor?

The price of RHODIUM is $14,100.00 per troy oz., -100.00 (-0.70%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $797,500.00 per CNY/T, +20,000.00 (+2.57%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,036.75 per USD/T, -68.50 (-2.21%).[xi]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000016.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.39 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.86 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.21.    In Vietnamese Dong, one greenback equals 22,754.00 and in West African CFA Franc, a buck equal 562.25 and in Yemeni Rial, one dollar equals 250.00 of theirs.[xii]  Wow.        
  70. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE FOUR STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.510 per gallon, $3.248 in Florida, $4.205 in Hawaii, and $3.868 in Washington state.[xiii]    Let us look at one other Utah: $3.696.  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 sixteenth LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Qatar: $2.131 per U.S. Gallon.[xiv]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,896,516,043,638 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Belgium, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Taiwan with $235,000,000 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  71. 2021 Tuesday F: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE I- Today is Day No. 208 for the purported ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the southern border and Day No. 115 since she showed up to do the job.  Fire her.  NOW.  Meanwhile, the New York Post has broken a massive story on how the Biden regime is flying illegal aliens around the country in the dead of night and dumping them in unsuspecting towns and cities.  Time to start issuing hunting licenses, folks.[xvi]
  72. 2021 Tuesday G: FOREIGN NEWS-OVERSEAS NEWS I- Human rights activists are demanding a boycott of the Chi-Coms’ 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics over human rights abuses among the Uighurs, the Tibetans, and their cruel and inhumane treatment of the freedom-loving peoples of Hong Kong and Taiwan.  (Note- the AICPENDBLOG.COM won’t cover the bogus Olympics nor will we speak of them.  It’s akin to covering the 1936 Berlin Summer Olympics.  You just don’t do that).  In other overseas news, the U.S. signed a bilateral defense pact with Georgia to provide security cooperation between the two countries.  Vladimir Putin is going to be pissed.  Speaking of both Russia and communist China, the two nations sailed a naval flotilla through the Straits of Japan in the hopes it would intimidate both the Japanese and the TRUE CHINA- Taiwan.
  73. 2021 Tuesday H: FOREIGN NEWS-OVERSEAS NEWS II- Elsewhere, regulators in the United Kingdom said today that Heathrow International Airport cannot raise passenger fees.   Elsewhere, the FBI is down in Haiti trying to aid the corrupt regime in Port-au-Prince find the kidnapped American (and Canadian) Christian missionaries, missionaries whom the kidnappers are demanding $1 million apiece.

  75. 2021 Tuesday J: COVID-19 LOCKDOWNS-RESTRICTIONS-AND AUTHORITARIANISM NEWS- Dozens of Washington state ferry employees are set to be terminated today for refusing to take the Chi-Vi vaccines.  Meanwhile, tens of thousands of California parents and tens of thousands more kids are walking out and protesting the vaccine mandate demanded by Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom.  Stand strong, people.  In other vaccine mandate news, representatives from Disney, United Parcel Service, and other companies met with slobbering Joe Biden today to discuss problems arising from the senile usurper’s demands for companies with 100 or more employees to force vaccinations upon them or else.   Next, Governor J. B. “POS” Pritzker, DS-IL, is pushing BACK vaccine mandates as growing outrage within the state is aimed at him and other crazed Dems such as Chicago Mayor Lori “Frog-Face” Lightfoot who are bat crap crazy at forcing one-size-fits-all mandates on virtually everyone within the boundaries of their power.[xvii]  In other news, critics of “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis, R-FL, have fallen silent as cases of the ‘VID continue plummeting.   Finally, Washington state football coach Nick Rolovich and four of his assistants have been fired for refusing to get vaccinated with the Chi-Vi vaccine.

  82. : JOE BIDEN REGIME NEWS I- U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen says that Congress must pass a permanent debit ceiling increase lest the U.S. government implodes, and everything goes to hell.  Uh, okay.  Meanwhile, as U.S. Transportation Secretary “Little Mayor Pete” Buttigieg remains home tossing ‘his twins’ on his knee, Congressman Matt Rosendale, R-MT At-Large district, lambasted the Biden regime as reaching for excuses regarding the supply chain SNAFU occurring on the shelves of consumer stores.  Newsmax began reporting on how communist China operates many of our ports today as though this is some sort of breaking news.  The U.S. contracts out the operations of our infrastructure to the highest bidder(s) and in the case of many of our major ports, guess who ‘owns and operates them?’  The Chi-Coms.
  83. 2021 Tuesday R: JOE BIDEN REGIME NEWS II- In other crazy news, the U.S. assistant secretary of health- tranny Dr. Rachel Levine another of Joe Biden’s “firsts”- was sworn in today as the first openly transexual four-star admiral as he took over the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps.  Woo-oo!  Good for you, admiral.  (Note- we bet our enemies are shaking in their boots looking at all the insane crap we are doing to our country- it’s enough to make one want to become a Russian citizen).  Finally, even though everyone knows this is crazy, senile Joe Biden is digging in on negotiating with Iran.  Speaking of Iran, Tehran and Venezuela announced today a 20-year strategic alliance against- guess who- Joe Biden and the United States.  Wow.
  84. 2021 Tuesday S: NANCY PELOSI’S JANUARY 06-2021 FALSE FLAG OPERATION- Steve Bannon, conservative strategist for President Donald J. Trump, faces a contempt vote for not rushing to appear before this sham committee on the FALSE FLAG OPERATION pulled off by U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi and her apparatchiks on January 6, 2021.  Later today, the false committee voted to hold Mr. Bannon in contempt.  Overweight stooge of the Democrats, Congresswoman Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, trumpeted the fact that the fuzz is coming for Mr. Bannon.  Wow.  Meanwhile, Capitol Hill Police Officer Michael Angelo Riley pleaded NOT GUILTY last Friday to obstruction charges over messages between himself and a “Capitol Hill rioter” known only as Person 1. 
  85. : POLITICAL NEWS I- Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell told the Grand Old Party today to focus on Joe Biden and stop with rehashing the 2020 Election.  (Note- Mitch, because of your slothfulness and perhaps being ‘in the tank’ with the Democrats to topple President Donald J. Trump, YOU lost control of the Senate.  By our count, you are responsible for the loss of THREE senators- Martha McSally, Arizona, David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, Georgia- and maybe even Cory Gardner in Colorado because you would not fight for them just so you could get rid of President Trump.  You, sir, are a POS).
  86. 2021 Tuesday U: POLITICAL NEWS II- Support for the ‘bipartisan infrastructure bill’ among the GOP is slowly collapsing even as Congresswoman Pramila “Pucker Puss” Jayapal, CPUSA-WA 7th congressional district, crowed that she has bullied reluctant Senators Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, and Kyrsten Sinema, D-AZ, into supporting this lunacy.   Next, Senator Mike Braun, R-IN, and Pat Toomey, R-PA, are going to hold a press conference on U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen’s goofy idea of monitoring bank accounts with $600 or more within them.  Next, legislators are pushing for stronger laws on BIG TECH.
  87. 2021 Tuesday V: POLITICAL NEWS III- Liberals are lashing out at Jon Stewart who said, ‘enough with treating President Donald J. Trump like a supervillain.’  Mr. Stewart is correct we must return to some sense of normalcy, but the little soy boys and screeching testosterone-filled women cannot handle such a comment.   Next, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says that he expects more Dems to retire ahead of the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.  Meanwhile, 9-term Congressman Jeff Fortenberry, R-NE 1st congressional district, says he expects to get his with fraudulent ‘lying to the FBI charges’ over campaign contributions he accepted from a wealthy foreigner.  Don’t the rest of these politicians take money from overseas donors?  Just change your party affiliation to a “D” and all will be well.
  88. 2021 Tuesday W: U.S. SENATE NEWS I- U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, is seeking a hearing from our brave military heads regarding the recent hypersonic missile test conducted by the Chi-Coms.  He also needs to learn more on the recent successful, submarine-launched ICBM tested by the North Koreans.  It would appear that we are rapidly falling behind our many enemies and are in serious danger, even more so than we ever were when the Soviet Union was alive and well.
  89. 2021 Tuesday X: FEDERAL AND STATE COURT NEWS- Families of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School St. Valentine’s Day Massacre have arrived at a settlement with Broward County, Florida, for $25 million.  The county government and the school board were well aware of the dangers presented by deranged student Nicolas Cruz and still they would not act on removing him from the classroom and institutionalizing his butt.
  90. 2021 Tuesday Y: NEW YORK STATE NEWS- New York City declares racism to be a ‘public health crisis’ (only if white folks are the racists), and City Hall removed the statue of President Thomas Jefferson from the building because of the intimidating effect that statue has on black folks and on Hispanics.  (Note- how does the statue intimidate either blacks or Hispanics?  Snowflakes, folks, snowflakes; hey- when will the Democrats begin removing the name Senator Robert Byrd from the monuments, highways, and bridges across the South?).
  91. 2021 Tuesday Z: SPORTS NEWS I- In Game 3 of the NLCS, the Los Angeles Dodgers (111-59) beat the home team, Atlanta Braves (93-74) by a score of 6-5.  Meanwhile, in Game 4 of the ALCS, the Houston Astros (98-70) beat the home team Boston Red Sox (98-72) by a final score of 9-2.  Tomorrow, both series will continue.
  92. 2021 Tuesday AA: CALIFORNIA LOTTERY RESULTS-MEGA-MILLIONS DRAW- Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1704 what with a $94 million jackpot on the line: 03, 12, 13, 19, 52, and Mega 01.  Out of 61,000 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $8,175 apiece.
  93. 2021 Tuesday: As we always say, stick around and discover what the Chi-Coms and their putzes in the Democratic Party are up today- getting close to the election so you know these scumbags are up to something…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Sandy Denny released her next album, “Like an Old-Fashioned Waltz,” on June 24, 1974.  This album did not chart, nor did it sell well which led the record label to kind of keep her at arm’s length and to say, “NO” to an extended tour in support of it.  Ah, well, it is what it is, folks.  The musicians on the album featured Sandy Denny (lead vocals, keyboards, guitars), Richard Thompson (lead guitar), Trevor Lucas (acoustic guitars), Jerry Donahue (guitars), Pat Donaldson (bass), Gerry Conway and Dave Mattacks (drums), and loads of other folks.  A major effort was put into creating a warm, welcoming product, and the fans turned their backs on it, which is horribly sad seeing as how Ms. Denny’s voice remains among the most unique when it comes to female vocalists in rock.  Ah, well, we hope you enjoy it as much as we do so, please, seek it out, give it a spin, and consider adding it to your growing discography.  You will be glad you did.

Should the American people lose the elections on November 3, the country will morph quickly into something it was never meant to be: a fascist hellhole along the lines of the ones depicted by George Orwell and Aldous Huxley

Monday, October 19, 2020 Today in History:


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

[ii] We hope to promote the music of the Doobie Brothers sometime before 2030.  We hope you will remain vigilant.

[iii] We hope to offer the music of Alice Cooper one day so please keep posted until we do.  We think you will appreciate them, especially the original band.

[iv] A well-known RINO- of course he did.

[v] “Transformational figure” in what way?  Positive or negative?  The latter proved to be the case.

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

[xvii] Speaking of “Frog-Face” Lightfoot, she is calling the Chicago Police Department’s resistance to her COVID-19 vaccine edicts an ‘insurrection.’  Insurrection?  Say what?  Tuches, you are incredibly stupid but hey, no one ever said you were very bright.  “Insurrection” among the Democrats will be the ‘word of the day’ for quite a while even though NO insurrections are occurring in the country (other than among Democratic voters in the big cities) and no one involved in the January 6, 2021, Capitol Hill ‘riots’ has been charged with the crime of ‘insurrection.’  It’s just a TALKING POINT.

  47. 2017 Wednesday: Poor President Donald J. Trump, who had faced harsh criticism for initially blaming the deadly weekend violence in Charlottesville, Va., on “many sides” (which was flipping TRUE), told reporters that there were ‘very fine people on both sides,’ of the confrontation and that groups protesting against the white supremacists were ‘also very violent’ which they were.  In between those statements, at the urgings of aides, Trump had offered a more direct condemnation of white supremacists.  What Trump was saying is that many of the people there were protesting against the removal of Confederate war memorial statues and were not all white supremacists, yet the FAKE NEWS media once again twists the story to fit their narrative that Trump is a racist.
  48. 2018 Thursday: In Northern Sudan, disaster occurs along the Nile River as raging floodwaters swamp a boat carrying mostly school-aged children; at least twenty-five drown while others disappear down the river.  
  49. 2019 Friday: President Donald J. Trump finally does something many people have long-wished him to do and that was to suspend the security clearance of former communist and former CIA director under Barack Hussein Obama- John Brennan.
  50. 2020 Saturday: Here are today’s COVID-19 Wuhan Virus, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, aka the Chinese Flu, the Kung Flu, you know, the Chinese “gift” that will not stop giving, statistics for today: 21,280,608 confirmed cases, UP 243,665, 767,422 confirmed deaths, UP 5,496, and 13,290,879 confirmed recoveries, UP 241,905.  In the United States, here are today’s numbers: 5,403,756 confirmed cases, UP 50,148 new cases, 170,632 confirmed deaths, UP 998, and 2,733,055 confirmed recoveries, UP 34,926.  Next, in the three states where 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: 613,689 confirmed cases, 11,147 confirmed deaths, but thanks to Gov. Gavin Newsom being little more than a mildewed POS, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  In Hawaii, here are the stats: 4,543 confirmed cases, forty confirmed deaths, and 1,756 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the too-far-left-to-save-state-of-Washington, here are the stats: 66,139 confirmed cases, 1,755 confirmed deaths, and like California’s worthless governor, Gov. Jay Inslee will not list the number of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at the numbers of another state we have not looked at lately, Arkansas, the “Natural State,” one of the worst states for out-of-control liberal politics.  The number of cases in the state is 52,392 while the number of deaths is six hundred.  The number of confirmed recoveries is 44,905.  Thank you, Governor Asa Hutchinson for your honesty and integrity.
  51. 2020 Saturday A: Let us look at the second-highest nation infected with the Wuhan Virus, Brazil:  The South American nation has 3,317,0996 cases of Xi Jinping’s gift to the world what with 107,232 deaths, and 2,384,302 recoveries.   India is the third highest nation infected with this dastardly, lab-engineered virus what with 2,589,208 confirmed cases, 50,084 confirmed deaths, and 1,860,672 confirmed recoveries.  Russia comes in fourth what with 917,884 confirmed cases, 15,617 confirmed deaths, and 729,411 confirmed recoveries.  Now, let’s look at the Chi-Coms, the place where this needless disaster began: last week, they come in 30th among nations but this week have dropped to 32nd place (yeah, right) with 84,808 confirmed cases, 4,634 confirmed deaths (same as last week), and 79,519 confirmed recoveries (although our sources in Hong Kong and Macau tell us they are 10-12-times higher than reported which sounds about right for the main communist hellhole on the planet.  Shame on them and damn them for the crime they have committed on the world).
  52. 2020 Saturday B: After the NYPD union endorses President Donald J. Trump, New York Democrats go berserk, particularly the little communist skank, your friend and ours, the Baby Evita, aka Sandy Cortez, former barmaid in the Big Apple, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, now known as AOC.  Not sure what these frigging Democrats expected but we predict that all across the United States, one law enforcement union after another is going to endorse President Donald J. Trump.  To tell you the truth, we expect Richard Trumka and the AFL-CIO to fall in line behind President Trump because in SOCIALIST-COMMUNIST countries, labor unions are for show while in FREE nations such as the United States, Labor serves a purpose and unions represent the workers.  As long as they do not try to devour businesses but work with them, amazing things can occur.  Trumka- get with it: NOW.
  53. 2020 Saturday C: Robert Trump, President Trump’s younger brother, died of an unknown illness at age 72.  He was a Trump Org. executive and a much more private member of the family although he supported his brother’s presidency. 
  54. 2021 Sunday: Friends, I am the Voice of Freedom broadcasting to you from the hellhole of Los Angeles, California, a place beset by unnecessary lockdowns, restrictions, illegal aliens running amok, and a bastion of our beloved governor, “Nazi” Newsom.  Time to eliminate the existing order and it’s going to happen on September 14, 2021.  Stick around for the latest anti-Chi-Com news, politics, Chi-Vi updates, BIG PHARMA vaccine makers’ stock prices, and news about the border crisis…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Long available only in ‘bootleg form,’ “Nothing is Easy- Live at the Isle of Wight 1970” came out yet again on March 12, 2013, and featured a phenomenal concert captured on disc and also on video although that is not a part of this release.  Tull appeared on the final night of the famed music festival, sandwiched between the Moody Blues and the legendary Jimi Hendrix.  The band features the lineup of Ian Anderson (guitars, flutes, and vocals), Martin Barre (guitars), Glenn Cornick (bass, harmonicas, and vocals), Clive Bunker (drums and percussion), and John Evan (keyboards).  This is a rollicking show if ever one existed which is why there is NO question as to why one should NOT add this to their growing collection of CDs and vinyl.  We hope you seek this one out and add it to your collection so you can enjoy it day after day after day.  We definitely believe that you will be glad you did.

  21. 1941 Tuesday: Architects presented the plans for the Pentagon to the House Subcommittee of Appropriations.  On the Eastern Front, Axis forces continue steamrolling across the Soviet Union.  The problems the Axis troops are facing is that as they head east, Russia opens up like a great funnel which dilutes the strength of the Axis forces.  That’s bad enough but stories of the atrocities the Nazis are committing behind the lines against civilians- notably communist party members and Jews- is stiffening the backbones of the Red Army soldiers.  Even without help in sight, they trade their lives to buy time for their comrades farther east to prepare defenses.   Still, Operation Barbarossa rolls forward.

  24. 1944 Saturday: The Soviet military authorities set up the Polish National Liberation Committee. In essence, they are telling the Free Polish government broadcasting orders to the Polish people from London, ‘you aren’t in charge here.’  Soviet forces capture the strategic city of Chelm and redouble their efforts at encircling Lublin, Poland.  Meanwhile, in London, Rick Davies, future keyboardist, and vocalist with the rock group, Supertramp[i], is born in Swindon, England.
  25. 1945 Sunday: As Allied bombers continue blasting Japan, the Japanese government still is not ready to throw in the towel.  Tokyo still thinks it can negotiate a peace and tells the Allies; we are ‘open to peace feelers but not to outright surrender.’  The Imperial Japanese are determined to defend their home islands to the bitter end no matter the cost.

  44. 1999 Thursday: In Rome, N.Y., the 30th anniversary music festival celebrating the original Woodstock Music and Arts Festival of 1969 begins.  None of the bands there could ever approximate the original performers and add to that the fact the concert temperatures were over 100 degrees plus, people became violent and battled with one another bringing the mess to an end on the 25th.  Some said the fiasco was ‘the day the music died,’ a comment attributed to San Francisco Examiner journalist Jane Ganahi.  Yes, we think it did die there what with a mishmash of various groups.   The fact that people fought with each other, there were sexual assaults, rapes, arson, and looting says that this event was NOT about ‘peace and love.’  Nope.  Can’t rekindle the magic.

  58. 2018 Sunday: In response to a hateful speech by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, President Donald J. Trump sends out a Tweet in which, he warns the s-hole nation of “CONSEQUENCES.”  The Iranians would be wise to listen to the 45th president as he is not- we repeat NOT- the 44th president who was Pro-Iranian to the bone.   Meanwhile, in anti-gun Toronto, Canada, a shooter kills 2 and wounds 13 before being shot dead by law enforcement.
  59. 2019 Monday: The latest Marvel Comics superhero film, “Avengers: Endgame,” surpasses “Avatar” as the world’s highest-grossing film pulling in $2.9 billion.  People love the comic book movies it says a lot about the public paying big bucks to watch this schlock.   Meanwhile, Pakistani President Imran Khan meets with President Donald J. Trump at the White House on a state visit.   Elsewhere, in northwestern Syria at Maarat al-Numan, Russian warplanes in support of Syrian government forces kill at least 31 civilians.   Finally, President Donald J. Trump says that the ‘U.S. could win the war in Afghanistan in one week.’  “I just don’t want to kill 10 million people.  If I wanted to win that war, Afghanistan would be wiped off the face of the earth.”  (Mr. President, this is why God gave the United States the neutron bomb- use them!).
  60. 2020 Wednesday: The U.S. State Department orders the closure- by this Friday- of the People’s Republic of (Communist) China’s consulate in Houston, Texas.  The Chinese within the facility immediately start a bonfire with which to eliminate all sensitive documents but everyone knows the Houston consulate (and most of the others) are hotbeds for hostile spying on everything in the area: U.S. air force and other military bases, the U.S. space program, and bio research, especially into the Chinese-manufactured Bat Flu pandemic sweeping the planet.  Meanwhile reports inform the world that every day PRC warplanes are buzzing Taiwan, a free nation the communists are determined to reclaim.  STAND STRONG TAIWAN!  WE ADVOCATE FOR A RETURN OF THE TWO-CHINA POLICY BY WHICH, TAIWAN BECOMES A FREE AND INDEPENDENT NATION AS THEY WERE BEFORE THE UNITED NATIONS THREW THEM UNDER THE BUS IN FAVOR OF THE PRC- CHI-COM MONEY BOUGHT THEM TAIWAN’S SEAT IN THE U.N.

  63. 2020 Wednesday C: 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: 413,576 confirmed cases, 7,883 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 1,418 confirmed cases, 24 confirmed deaths, and 1,084 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 48,575 confirmed cases, 1,465 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed 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, Florida: 379,619 confirmed number of cases, 5,459 confirmed number of deaths, and like Blue States, NO number of confirmed recoveries.  What’s up, Governor Ron DeSantis?  Acting like a Blue State governor?    
  64. 2020 Wednesday D: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,005.84, UP 165.44 points (0.62%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 10,706.13, UP 25.76 points (0.24%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,276.02, UP 18.72 points (0.57%).  The price of GOLD is $1,868.80 per troy oz., +3.70 (+0.20%) while the price of SILVER is $23.20 per troy ounce, +0.061 (+0.26%).  The price of PLATINUM is $964.00 per troy oz, +6.60 (0.69%) while the price of COPPER is $2.92 per pound, -0.0045 (-0.15%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.82 per barrel, -0.08 (-0.19%).
  65. 2021 Thursday:  Folks, stick around to uncover the truth along with each of us.  We all know the ‘truth is out there’ and when it comes to ‘Gropin’ Joe’ Biden, the truth swirls around us like a Chi-Com shit storm.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Jethro Tull released their next album, “The Jethro Tull Christmas Album,” on September 30, 2003, and the album featured new material as well as traditional Christmas favorites.  The band featured a quintet of Ian Anderson (vocals, flutes, guitars, keyboards), Martin Barre (guitars), Jonathan Noyce (bass- Gary Moore) Doane Perry (drums and percussion), and Andy Giddings (keyboards).  It’s always glorious to see a band that no matter how music changes decade by decade manages to keep up and to continue demonstrating that it still can set the trends.  Sadly, this would be it for new music for about 20 years.  We hope you will seek this one out wherever you shop for the absolute best in rock music- you will be glad you did.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On June 05, 2001, Jethro Tull- at the behest of their record label obviously- released yet another official ‘best of package,’ “The Very Best of Jethro Tull” which featured 20 tracks spread out from across much of the storied band’s career.   If you have yet to introduce the music of this band to your ears, this is a good way in which one can do it just so long as you buy “25th Anniversary Box Set” at the same time, too.  In that way, you are able to get a good selection of music with which to delight one’s auditory senses.  We hope you will seek it out by visiting whatever site it is you choose for the absolute best in rock music.  Remember this, however, with Amazon.com having become the POS company that it has, try shopping LOCAL instead of Amazon or Alibaba or any other BIG ONLINE RETAILER.
