Thankfully, the January 6 Committee held its final hearing this past Wednesday to show its final findings and to make some BS recommendation regarding President Trump.  I hope that each of the panel’s members meet the same end as those who tried to deny Julius Caesar what was rightfully his- another run at being consul.  His jealous enemies got theirs one by one…

  55. 2009 Wednesday: The Obama regime announces it is going to withdraw 4,000 soldiers out of Iraq by the end of next month.  This will allow terrorist supergroup ISIS to begin growing like a virulent cancer.  Should keep them there, Mr. President.
  56. 2010 Thursday: Somali pirates seize a Panamanian -flagged freighter off the coast of Africa and capture the Indian crewmembers aboard it.  Elsewhere, jihadists in southern Baghdad attempt to rob a bank.  The crime results in at least two Iraqi police officers and a civilian killed, another four wounded, and the perps in the wind.  We will stay tuned.
  57. 2011 Friday: Vocalist with Smokey Robinson and the Miracles- Marvin Tarplin- died in Las Vegas, Nevada, at age 70.  Elsewhere, the Obama administration carries out a major strike in the global war on terror, this time in Yemen when a drone strike blows to bits radical jihadist cleric- and American citizen- Anwar al-Awlaki.  Good.  Send this POS howling to meet with Allah, it’s been long overdue.
  58. 2012 Sunday: Spain announces it expects its debt levels to increase in 2013.  Elsewhere, the ‘religion of peace’ strikes again- this time in Bangladesh.  After a RUMOR hits social media in which, a BUDDHIST man posted a photo supposedly critical of the ‘religion of peace,’ Muslims rush out, burn down four Buddhist temples and at least 15 homes owned by Buddhists.  Folks, when is the ‘religion of peace’ going to undergo a reformation and enter the 21st century?
  59. 2013 Monday: Pope Francis announced during a meeting with cardinals that he would canonize two of his most influential predecessors, John Paul II and John XXIII, the following spring.

  61. 2015 Wednesday:  In the fight to destroy the Taliban and to aid the Afghan army, the U.S. and Coalition aircraft begin launching airstrikes on Kunduz.  The Afghan government’s counter-offensive against the Islamist scum appeared to be faltering so air support was beefed up to help them in their fight.
  62. 2016 Friday:  The United Nations says that the Syrian city of Aleppo is a “Humanitarian Crisis” as peace talks between the Syrian government, its allies, and the ISIS criminals, falters.  People are being bombed, they’re being strafed, they are starving to death, and disease stalks the weakened among them.  And the U.S. military-industrial complex wants the United States to involve itself even deeper in this quagmire.
  63. 2017 Saturday: The Trump administration’s Health and Human Services Director Tom Price resigns his position today after being blasted and criticized for misusing funds.  No proof is ever offered but you know the libs- they never stop.  Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is in Beijing ahead of President Trump’s visit to the communist nation.  Elsewhere, Canadian American game show host, Monty Hall of “Let’s Make a Deal” fame dies at age 96.
  64. 2018 Sunday:  The Federal Bureau of Investigation- after being bullied by Democrats- announces that it is expanding its probe into the supposed wrongdoings of U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.  The Dems are trying to smear the stellar judge in their attempt to deny him a seat on the high court and to repel President Donald J. Trump’s second SCOTUS nominee.
  65. 2019 Monday:  As testimony in the growing impeachment inquiry by the Democrats to take out the 45th president, Donald J. Trump tweets that he should be able to ‘meet the so-called whistleblower’ whom most believe is a lying POS.  The Dems will do everything possible to protect his identity, but we know who he is.   Meanwhile, the “Pro-China Joe” Biden 2020 campaign asks the TV networks to stop booking Rudy Giuliani.   They accuse the president’s lawyer of ‘spreading lies about the candidate and his son, Hunter.’  Funny thing is, on Wednesday, September 23, 2020, the U.S. Senate committee investigating the Bidens and their corruption- especially in the Ukraine and in communist China demonstrate that Hunter’s actions were indeed ‘criminal’ and in need of further investigation.  Not looking good for you, Joe…
  66. 2020 Wednesday: Reviews regarding last night’s first 2020 presidential debate continue coming in with most believing that President Trump was debating not one but two people.  Moderator Chris Wallace- who should be stripped of all future debates- did everything he could to help keep “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s head above the roiling waters.  Today, the former VP is on a ‘train tour,’ running from Cleveland, Ohio, to Johnstown, Pennsylvania.  Crowds are incredibly sparse for the stumbling bumbler.  It would appear that in last night’s debate, President Trump utilized the same strategy he employed in his VP debate with Rep. Paul Ryan, R-WI, Mitt Romney’s vice-presidential pick.  In that ugly 2012 matchup, Biden interrupted, derided, and lampooned Mr. Ryan.  It was ugly, it turned off millions of viewers, but everyone said, “Joe did a hell of a job.”  Whoa.   At least Telemundo, the Spanish language juggernaut in a poll released last night, one we reported, that viewers said Trump won the matchup by an overwhelming 66-percent to 33-percent.  Latinos love their blood sports.  The Atlantic Magazine says the ‘rest of the debates should be canceled.’
  67. 2020 Wednesday A:  In New York City, more than 100,000 mail-in ballots have gone to people with the incorrect information emblazoned on them.  The state says it will make things right; however, what will happen with the messed-up ballots and who will be responsible for their destruction?  Things continue going from bad to worse.   Meanwhile, Glenn Beck reports on his program this morning that in Harris County, Texas, Joe Biden surrogate Dallas Jones was caught red-handed in a scheme to have hirelings fill out more than 700,000 mail-in ballots.  An investigation featuring former federal law enforcement officers busted Jones outright.  We hope this situation can be repaired and that the participants in, yet another fraudulent vote theft shenanigan find themselves busting rocks in Leavenworth, Kansas, for 30 years.
  68. 2020 Wednesday B: Judge Amy Coney Barrett will be meeting with 10 senators on Capitol Hill today even though most Democratic senators are keeping her at arm’s length.   Speaking of Capitol Hill, Lindsey Graham’s Senate committee is grilling fired former FBI Director James “The Saint” Comey virtually today, trying to pull answers from him about the scam of Crossfire Hurricane and the attempt to bring down Donald Trump, both as candidate and as president.  This man must do time in federal prison.  Graham says, ‘what happened at the FBI and the Obama Justice Department is a system failure.’  Elsewhere, the ‘Happiest Place on Earth’- Disneyland- says it will begin laying off 30,000 workers due to the harsh shutdown restrictions imposed upon the entertainment destination by Gov. Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom.  Finally, failed Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer- a woman who keeps her stated in the lockbox while permitting her husband to drive around the state and to take his boat out on whatever lake he chooses- announces that she is extending the CHI-VI lockdown that was set to end tomorrow until at least October 31.  What a pity.
  69. 2020 Wednesday C: A judge in Las Vegas, Nevada, rules that Mandalay Bay Hotel and Resort is liable for the $800 million payout to the victims of the October 31, 2017, mass shooting that occurred on its property.  The shooter, Stephen Paddock, carried load upon load of what turned out to be firearms, ammunition, and surveillance equipment and then began shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival from several adjoining windows 32 floors up.  By the time law enforcement and hotel security got around to storming the hotel room, the damage was done, and the shooter lay dead, slain by his own hand.  Meanwhile, the police chief of Los Angeles, California, says that attacks and assaults on police officers have skyrocketed by 156% from this time in 2019.
  70. 2020 Wednesday D: TV ratings for last night’s first presidential debate are 64 million viewers.  It is interesting to note that the Proud Boys, brought up in last night’s debate by moderator Chris Wallace (a failure and a partisan hack) added Trump’s words to both their logo and t-shirts: “Stand by and stand back.”  No one asks “Pro-China Joe” Biden to disavow Blacks Lives Matter, Resist Fascism, or Antifa.  This leads us to speculate that since the Proud Boys jumped in with the t-shirt, that they are receiving funding from the SAME FINANCIAL SOURCES that are also funding the left-wing groups.  Once again, this confirms to us that the Chi-Coms and their Democratic stooges are the ones funneling money to all these violent groups as it serves their overall purposes: the destabilization of the United States and its institutions.
  71. 2020 Wednesday E: On Neil Cavuto’s show, guest Charlie Gasparino tells Neil that many of his Wall Street friends and colleagues fear substantial changes in tax policy as well as regulations should Joe Biden win in November and has a Democrat House and Senate.  A ‘President Joe Biden’ would return the mandate to the Affordable Care Act which would end full-time employment and return the norm of 28 hours or less per week.   No matter what Dems about say about the humongous economy of the Obama-Biden years, it simply did not exist- Obamacare kept every job ‘part-time’ except for union jobs and they were able to avoid Obamacare costs because the administration gave them carve-outs.   Elsewhere, the Sunday afternoon game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Tennessee Titans has been postponed due to a number of Chi-Vi cases among the Titans.  Stay tuned for further developments.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 400,671 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.  Currently, Joe is shy 3,407 deaths which we expect will come soon which will push the dictator past the death mark the 45th president held.  NOT GOOD, Joe, NOT GOOD.

[xi]    Let us look at one other Mississippi: $2.818.  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- Norway: $8.013 per U.S. Gallon.[xii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,823,035,177,448 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xiii]  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 Germany, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Bermuda with $73 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  81. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, shared the shocking news today that a tidal wave of 120,000 illegal aliens or more are marching north to the U.S.-Mexico border.  Yet, the Biden regime again is going to court to try to counter the U.S. Supreme Court order demanding the reinstatement of President Donald J. Trump’s highly effective “Remain in Mexico Policy.” Still, the Biden regime is doing everything it can to counter any border controls by trying to get an executive border or a bill shoved through that will restrict border apprehensions and expulsions.  Joe wants EVERY ILLEGAL POS to remain in the country.
  82. 2021 Thursday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Kim Jong Un offered once again to reopen the hotline between North and South Korea while denouncing the ‘hostile actions of the Biden regime.’  Later in the day, the regime celebrated the successful firing of its new antiaircraft missile system.  Meanwhile, on the other side of the globe, a court convicted former French President Nicolas Sarkozy of campaign finance violations.
  83. 2021 Thursday H: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and-Authoritarianism News– GOP senators have joined forces to draft a bill with which to HALT the use of COVID-19 passports by the feds.  Next, United Airlines fires 593 of its employees today because of their refusal to accept the Chi-Vi vaccination. 
  84. 2021 Thursday I: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $43.01 (2) AstraZeneca $60.06 (3) Johnson & Johnson $161.50 (4) BioNTech $272.99 (5) Moderna $384.86.

  89. 2021 Thursday N: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– As Joe Biden’s approval ratings continue plummeting and he is booed at public events, people are gravitating towards the idea that “Kooky Kamala” Harris could be the nation’s next ‘president,’ her poll numbers are beginning to inch up ever so slightly.  Next, an AP-NORC poll shows a deep divide between Americans over Joe Biden’s vaccine mandates.  Democrats now love them (whereas last year, they said anyone who received one would have to be a dimwit) whereas Republicans are skeptical.   Adding to Joe’s woes, former Ambassador Nikki Haley said of Joe Biden turning up at the congressional baseball game that feeble old Joe ‘chose baseball over serious work.’ As if that is NOT bad enough for poor old Joe, Rep. Vicky Hartzler, R-MO 4th CD, said of the recent hearings on Capitol Hill in the Senate and House regarding the debacle in Afghanistan, that ‘it’s clear that Joe Biden lied on the troops and the situation.’
  90. 2021 Thursday O: Political News I– U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, DS-CA 12th CD, is now echoing Joe Biden because she says that the BIG SPENDING BILL will cost the American taxpayers ZERO DOLLARS.  That’s right- ‘Mumbles’ say it will cost NOTHING.  Next, Rep. Cori “The Bitch” Bush, CPUSA-MO 1st CD, is facing ethics problems of her own (Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, aka AOC) because of taking expensive gifts and other benefits that a congressional member is forbidden to do.  Add that to Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DS-MN 5th CD, and her woes over having committed immigration fraud by marrying her brother, and it would appear that the infamous squad is beginning to come apart at the seams.
  91. 2021 Thursday P: Political News II– Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, questioned LinkedIn over its censoring of journalists on behalf of the Chinese Communist Party.  Meanwhile, Special Counsel John Durham announced new subpoenas today for people swept up in the Russian Collusion Scandal, the scheme the Obama regime used to destroy President Trump.  Next, Rep. Jay Obernolte, R-CA 8th CD, told Newsmax today, “Don’t count out Nancy Pelosi’s negotiating skills when it comes to getting the spending bills passed.’
  92. 2021 Thursday Q: U.S. House of Representatives News I– Tensions soared on Capitol Hill today as the Democrats vote to suspend the debt ceiling.  Rep. Tim Burchett, R-TN 2nd CD, said it’s highly likely that U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th CD, will push the vote on the massive spending bill BACK as the old warhorse won’t take anything to the floor unless she has the votes- and the progressives in HER ranks are fighting her tooth and nail.
  93. 2021 Thursday R: U.S. Military News– Sadly, a new report says that suicides among U.S. service members jumped by 15-percent in 2020.  Next, the U.S. Marine who famously hoisted the Afghan baby over the wall at Hamid Karzai International Airport back in August and who spoke- for just a moment and did so NOT in uniform- is now under investigation.  L. Cpl. Hunter Clark is being investigated for appearing briefly at a political rally while his superiors- like Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark A. Milley and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin- can go political all the time, he faces possible disciplinary actions.  Perhaps boneheaded actions such as this could explain why suicides in the U.S. military have gone way UP.  Shame on the leaders, shame.  Rep. Jim Banks, R-IN 3rd CD, says of Chairman Milley that he should have spent more time on Afghanistan and communist China policies than on politics.  Rep. Scott DesJarlais, R-TN 4th CD says, ‘there’s a lot of finger-pointing going on regarding the mess in Afghanistan.’
  94. 2021 Thursday S: Fake News I– ABC News is being slammed for having selectively edited an interview with former President Barack Obama when he said- more or less- that a country cannot survive without borders.  ABC News cut out all comments made by the 44th president regarding the right of the United States to determine who comes in and who does not.  Is there a breach between Joe Biden and his former boss?   Next, CNN finally steps up and admits that the U.S. Border Patrol’s mounted officers were not whipping the poor HAITIAN INVADERS after lying for an entire week about it.
  95. 2021 Thursday T: Sports News I– Tonight’s Thursday Night Football game features the Jacksonville Jaguars (0-3-0) at the Cincinnati Bengals (2-1-0).  The Bengals pulled it out with a field goal beating the Jaguars by a final score of 24-21.  Wow.  We thought the Jags were on the way to their first victory.
  96. 2022 Friday: Observation of the Day As you know, this past Wednesday, the FINAL installment of the January 6 Select House Committee came and went without much import.  These people are so bitter, so demented, and so insane that they think if they keep swinging away at the cast iron Donald J. Trump pinata, that somehow the viewers will say, “Wow.  They really do have something.”  Folks, they don’t have crap.  They can show ‘new video footage’ just as they can show ‘new emails and text messages.’  Oh, boy, we can show you far more because from the video footage we’ve seen on Newsmax, One America News, and even Fox News Channel, it sure looks like all manner of criminality was occurring on the side of the Capitol Hill Police and not the Trump supporters.  I, like most of the rest of my colleagues understand that what we saw on January 6, 2021, looked nothing like Trump supporters but a well-orchestrated mob of Antifa thugs and BLM garbage.  Swirling flags, people dressed in black, people climbing up the sides of the Capitol Building, cops standing idly by or briskly waving in the mob.  They cannot clean this up nor can they convince anyone that what we witnessed that day is different that what we saw.  We know what we saw- we saw an orchestrated coup in the manner of what Erdogan did in Turkey a few years back.  It’s all smoke and mirrors and we all understand that.  Good riddance to the J6 Committee.  I hope they burn in hell.  Chef Lilah Paulikovich.

Bush ruled out raising taxes to pay the massive costs of Gulf Coast reconstruction in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, saying other government spending had to be cut to pay for the recovery effort. How about not going to war in Iraq, Mr. President, why didn’t you think about that before invading the Middle Eastern nation in 2003?
  46. 2007 Sunday: O.J. Simpson undergoes arrest in the alleged armed robbery of sports memorabilia collectors in Las Vegas. A jury later convicted “The Juice” of kidnapping and armed robbery, and then sentenced the thug to an indeterminate term of between nine-to-33 years in prison. Meanwhile, contractors for the U.S. security firm Blackwater USA guarding a U.S. State Department convoy in Baghdad opened fire on civilian vehicles mistakenly believing that they were under attack; 14 Iraqis died. It is what it is, folks.

  51. 2015 Wednesday:  In the journal, “Nature,” Oxford University reports that thanks to the intervention of modern medicine in Africa, approximately 700 million cases of malaria have been prevented. We know that hydroxychloroquine is one of the best anti-malarial drugs in use on the African continent and in 2020, it’s interesting to note that a country such as Uganda that has long used this extremely low-cost drug the deaths in 2020 from COVID-19 are almost nonexistent. Elsewhere, in Burkina Faso, security guards launch a coup taking President Michel Kafando and other ranking government officials into custody.
  52. 2016 Friday: Democracy Now reports that Donald Trump continues to dis President Barack Hussein Obama by suggesting that the 44th president was not born in the United States. Folks, millions of Americans, and millions more around the planet do not believe Obama[v] was born in the U.S. so WTF? Meanwhile, following a campaign rally in North Carolina the previous day, Hillary Clinton minimizes her public appearances. What is wrong with this woman?
  53. 2017 Saturday: Tropical Storm Maria, which would batter the Caribbean as a powerful hurricane, formed in the Atlantic. Elsewhere, California lawmakers voted to move the state’s presidential primary up by about three months to March, a move that would force candidates to mount expensive campaigns earlier.
  54. 2018 Sunday: In Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes sets an NFL record with 10 touchdown passes in the first two games of the regular season, lighting up the Steelers’ secondary with six touchdown passes for a road win of 42-37. Meanwhile, the Washington Post reports that potential U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh committed sexual assault in the 1980s when he was a young man, charges since proven to be FALSE.   Finally, in London, England, Maartin Allcock- longtime member of Fairport Convention[vi] (guitars, keyboards, violins, vocals, bass guitars, and pipes)- succumbs to liver cancer at age 61.
  55. 2019 Monday:  The New York Times publishes a story in which, it charges the U.S. military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, as being the most expensive in the world that each prisoner costs the taxpayers $13 million annually. Meanwhile, On This Day reports that the personal information of every citizen in Ecuador was found online on an unsecured server. Go figure.
  56. 2020 Wednesday: Warned ahead of time that his book about his time in the Trump administration contained classified information, former National Security Advisor John Bolton finds himself- along with his publisher and support staff- finds himself under investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice. We told you so, John! Meanwhile, America’s insurance companies announce that this year’s ongoing ‘peaceful protests,’ aka rioting, looting, arson, rape, and murder- will be the costliest in U.S. history, claims coming in between $1-2 billion. Thank you, Democrats, thank you, Marxist-Socialist thugs. Elsewhere, pot-smoking New York City Mayor Bill Di Blasio- struggling to remain lucid- announces that HE and his mayoral staff of at least 500 workers will go on furlough for two weeks, beginning in October. Dude, you do nothing anyway but thanks for allowing the city to hold onto your $250,000 annual salary.
  57. 2020 Wednesday A: In Austin, Texas, two construction cranes collide into one another killing no one but injuring at least 22 people on the ground. Illegal aliens at the controls? It is Texas, after all. Meanwhile, Hurricane Sally, a Cat 1 storm, continues assaulting the coastlines of Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi. Rains are heavy, storm surges strong, and flooding rampant. Elsewhere, NFL ratings are in a nosedive, the opening week’s ratings coming in with a 20-percent or more drop in viewership. Every game save the New Orleans Saints-Tampa Bay Buccaneers was below normal. Don’t expect it to get any better anytime soon, the league’s owners MUST- we repeat, MUST- terminate the contract of Commissioner Roger Goodell and send this virtue-signaling POS packing and then must regain control of the players and enforce the rules. You remember ratings were DOWN in 2016 and were it not for Donald Trump, they would have continued tanking. This is your second chance, NFL team owners, and if you blow it this time, we expect America’s favorite sport will be as popular as midget mud wrestling. Don’t blow it. Speaking of football, the BIG 10 says it is going to return to playing games. Congratulations!
  58. 2020 Wednesday B: Senate Minority Leader and knuckle-dragger Sen. Chuck Schumer wants the head of Health and Human Services boss Alex Azar’s head over some bogus charge concerning the Xi Jinping Yellow Fever Bat Flu. Chuck- STFU. Meanwhile, Real Clear Politics polling average shows “Pro-China Joe” Biden with a lead of 49-percent to 44.7-percent over Trump. Wow. You go, Joe, you go! Next, along the west coast, out-of-control wildfires continue to burn acres and take lives yet in our northern neighbor, Canada, the wildfire season is way, way down thanks to proper forest management. Democrats do NOT think we won’t remember who is responsible for all the ills come November or in November 2022, November 2024 and onward. YOU will pay. Finally, last night, Tucker Carlson on Fox News Channel had Chinese Virus Crisis whistleblower, Dr. Li-Meng Yan on his program and she told the host that Beijing knew the facts concerning the Wuhan Flu and that they INTENTIONALLY ALLOWED IT TO ESCAPE. It is interesting to note that famed bastion of free speech, Twitter (yeah, right), silenced the doctor’s account on September 15. My, my, me!
  59. 2020 Wednesday C: The U.S. Senate Homeland Security Committee has issued subpoenas to former CIA director John Brennan, former National Security advisor James Clapper, and former FBI director James “The Saint” Comey. Good. Bring them in and bust their balls on live TV! Elsewhere, radio talk show king, Rush Limbaugh, reports today on his program that new polling shows that in strife-torn cities and towns across the country, voters favor Donald Trump by a 2-1 margin in November. Ooops! Not good for the Democrats!

(The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt motherf**kers). Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 170,465 confirmed cases, 1,165 confirmed deaths, and 122,785 confirmed recoveries.
  61. 2020 Wednesday E: COVID-19 Statistics 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: 771,288 confirmed cases, 14,648 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 10,951 confirmed cases, 100 confirmed deaths, and 3,885 confirmed recoveries. Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 84,320 confirmed cases, 2,107 confirmed deaths, but like California, the palooka-faced governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries. Shame on these flipping Democrats. Let’s take a look at one more state, Idaho: 35,984 confirmed number of cases, 420 confirmed deaths, but no mention of the confirmed number of recoveries- thank you, Governor Brad Little for acting like a Democrat and remaining mum on this figure.
  62. 2020 Wednesday F: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals DOW Jones Industrial Average: 28,032.38, UP 36.78 points (+0.13%). Next, the NASDAQ: 11,050.47, DOWN 139.85 points (-1.25%).

  63. 2020 Wednesday G:  President Donald J. Trump- speaking from the White House today- said that he believes a vaccine will be available to combat the Wuhan Virus sometime in October. Earlier in the day, CDC Director Robert Redfield said that ‘masks are good’ and that ‘he was not as optimistic about a vaccine before late 2021.’  We shall see. However, Dr. Scott Atlas says 100 million doses should be available by the end of 2020. Elsewhere, “Pro-China Joe” Biden says his legal advisors have told him that he could probably issue a nationwide mask mandate via executive order. Joe: NOT enough prisons to hold everyone who will not obey the bull crap order. Better to make hydroxychloroquine, aka Plaquenil, available to ALL Americans.
  64. 2020 Wednesday H: Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of Justice charges five Chi-Com hackers with attempting to hack into more than 100 sites including social media and government. Currently, law enforcement is tracking these scalawags down. Next, President Trump reverses himself from an earlier stance and says that limited briefings on U.S. elections security will be provided to key members of Congress. As everyone knows, the Chi-Coms, the Russkies, the Iranians, the Cubans, the North Koreans, the Venezuelans, everyone with an ax to grind against the U.S. is going to attempt changing U.S. election results in November as they always do. When Barack Hussein Obama was president, he said influencing an election one way or another was nearly impossible so why would things be any different now?
  65. 2021 Thursday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 227,764,447 confirmed cases, +614,296, 4,681,587 confirmed deaths, +10,187 and 204,406,238 confirmed recoveries, +579,782.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 368,442 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.  Currently, Joe is shy 35,636 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[ix]

[xiii]        
  70. 2021 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have dropped to $4.390 per gallon, $3.096 in Florida, $4.073 in Hawaii, and $3.872 in Washington state. [xiv]    Let us look at one other Georgia: $2.977.  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- Germany: $6.872 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,768,967,941,690 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xvi]  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 Brazil, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Switzerland with $256 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  71. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 175 since Joe Biden’s earpiece appointed “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be ‘border czar’ and Day No. 82 since her sole visit to the region.  Next, here are stats from One America News for the border calamity.  We begin with the Cost for just this day of caring for the denizens of the Third World: $522,488,704.  Imagine what that money could do for the homeless, yet it’s going to ILLEGAL ALIENS.  Next, here is the cost for this year of caring for this human fecal matter: $283,262,287,872.  Incredible, absolutely incredible.  Next, here is the estimate for the numbers of illegal alien trash that has swept across the U.S.-Mexico border this year: 2,903,211.  Wow.  Finally, here is the CONSERVATIVE (LOW) estimate of border-jumpers living within the country now: 36,903,212.  Note- since 2009, we have placed the actual number back then at around 35-50 million whereas now, we believe the number is closer to 85-110 million. (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  72. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– The Department of Homeland Security watchdog says that the ‘failure to screen illegal aliens along the border for COVID-19- and other diseases- is putting employees and American towns and cities at risk.’  Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says that the Biden-Harris regime are responsible for the 317-percent increase on illegal alien garbage pouring across the southern border.  Meanwhile, in Texas, 123 landowners along the border in Texas are allowing the state to erect border fencing on their properties.  Good for you.  In other border news, every day, 4,000 or more illegal aliens show up under a bridge between Texas and Mexico.  Currently, there are 8,000-10,000 illegals waiting beneath the bridge for the Border Patrol to show up and process them.  Fox News has been flying drones around the bridge to show the environmental disaster of all the urine, fecal matter, and disease swirling around beneath the bridge.  That is, until late today when the FAA banned Fox from flying any more flights in the area.
  73. 2021 Thursday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Following yesterday’s announcement by the Biden regime and leftist leaders in Australia- Prime Minister Scott Morrison- and in England- Prime Minister Boris “BoJo” Johnson regarding the three countries’ new alliance with which to give Australia nuclear-powered submarines, France became angry as they were not consulted seeing as how they are also involved in the Indo-Pacific Region.  Moron U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken is now trying to pacify and coddle hurt Gallic feelings.  We thought the Biden regime was supposed to be ‘grownups in the room’ and that everything was ‘going to get back to normal’ with this Chi-Com stooge in the White House.  Finally, Barack Hussein Obama gives Justin Trudeau his endorsement in Canada’s upcoming election.  Loser.
  74. 2021 Thursday I: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News-(1) Pfizer $44.47 (2) AstraZeneca $56.60 (3) Johnson & Johnson $165.22 (4) BioNTech $372.65 (5) Moderna $440.65.

  78. 2021 Thursday M: Joe Biden News I– As various state governments, companies, and businesses continue fighting the unconstitutional COVID-19 vaccine mandates, Joe Biden is bringing in representatives from Disney and Microsoft so the old fogey can try to break their balls on the topic of vaccine mandates.  Ronna McDaniel, chair of the Republican National Committee says, “NO” to vaccine mandates.   Rep. James Comer, R-KY 1st congressional district, demands to see ‘evidence’ from Joe Biden’s inconclusive Chi-Com Virus origins report (seeing as how “Pro-China Joe” is trying to protect his paymasters in Beijing).  Next, following tweets saying ‘think for yourself’ from entertainer Nikki Minaj, the White House is dangling a phone call with her so they can twist her arm into urging her 22 million followers to rush out and get these bogus vaccines.   Don’t take it, Ms. Minaj.
  79. 2021 Thursday N: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– The blows continue hammering the fraudulent Joe Biden regime as first, 24 GOP state attorneys general threaten the regime with lawsuits over its mandate forcing Americans within their states to get inoculated for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu while leaving illegal aliens to do whatever the heck they want.  Meanwhile, Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, told the Biden regime today, “See you in court” over the mandate.  As if that is not bad enough, Joe Biden laid out today a plan with which to tax the rich.  He claims the wealthy do not pay ‘their fair share’ when in fact, the top one percent pays 50-percent of all taxes while the bottom 50-percent and less pay little to no taxes other than sales taxes and SALT.  Most of them get their taxes back via tax refunds so this bull crap that the upper classes pay no taxes is little more than crap.  Meanwhile, in another blow to feeble Joe Biden, Senator Kyrsten Sinema, D-AZ, continues- with Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA- to hold out against this bogus $3.5 trillion ‘infrastructure bill.’  Meanwhile, racist Virginia Governor Ralph “KKK” Northam says he ’supports Joe Biden’s tax hikes.’
  80. 2021 Thursday O: Joe Biden Regime News I– The U.S. government is moving to block the agreed-upon Purdue Pharma settlement resulting from their hand in the ongoing opioid crisis.  Next, the Biden regime is praising the Fox News Channel for having nearly 90-percent of its employees vaccinated for the Kung Flu and for ordering weekly testing of ALL personnel.  What a load of crap, FNC has become a left-wing outlet.  How sad.  Finally, polls are showing that Joe Biden is facing an uphill battle to win a second term in 2024.  (Note- how many believe this man is going to make it to 2024?  What is with all these coughing fits of his?)
  81. 2021 Thursday P: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– We expect that Nancy Pelosi’s hirelings, i.e., FBI informants, paid Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs, and other sundry garbage are going to ignite another FALSE FLAG OPERATION on Saturday at the Justice for the January 6, 2021, political prisoners languishing in the D.C. gulags.  The TSA is already tightening security at regional airports in case Marxists begin causing trouble.  This sounds like yet another attempt from start to finish to tarnish Trump supporters by setting off yet another riot.  This will allow House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi to put up Fort Pelosi once again and to keep it standing.  Meanwhile, Aaron Babbitt, widower of Ashli Babbitt, is urging there be NO violence at Saturdays “Justice for J6 Rally” at the U.S. Capitol.  Mr. Babbitt, NO Trump supporter, or defender of Americans’ civil rights will cause violence but all the stooges on the pay of the FBI and/or Speaker “Mumbles” Pelosi most assuredly are going to cause violence.  Finally, in other fascinating news related to the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021, while Roger Stone was giving a radio interview, process servers showed up and served him live on air with papers related to the events of that day.  Wow.
  82. 2021 Thursday Q: Political News I– Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, told Newsmax that IF what is being alleged about Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark A. (Asshole) Milley is true, the scumbag could have triggered a nuclear war between the United States and communist China.  Chef Lilah Paulikovich of the AICPENDBLOG.COM said on her Twitter page a few days ago that Gen. Milley should be court martialed, stripped of rank, led up the 13 steps to the gallows, have the black bag placed over his head, the noose tightened around his neck, and then have the trapdoor beneath his feet dropped open.  He should also be fed to the crows. 
  83. 2021 Thursday R: Political News II– Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-NY 1st congressional district, says that disgraced traitor General Mark A. (Asshole) Milley violated the chain of command via circumventing it in his communicating with the Chi-Coms.  Rep. Tim Burchett, R-TN 1st congressional district, says that ‘General Milley has clearly violated the Logan Act’ and should undergo prosecution for it.  Rep. Chris Stewart, R-UT 2nd congressional district, says that ‘it’s stunning how General Milley bypassed civilian leaders’ including the President and the then-Acting U.S. Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller, the latter of whom said he ‘did NOT okay the chairman’s calls to his Chi-Com ‘opposite.’  Finally, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says the ‘only winner in Joe Biden’s tax increases is the communist Chinese.’
  84. 2021 Thursday S: Federal and State Court News– A federal court has blocked the expulsion of illegal alien families under a Trump-era order.   Another judge nixes the Department of Justice bid to quash the Lone Star State’s new ban on abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected.  Hearings are set for October 1.
  85. 2021 Thursday T: Sports News I– Tonight’s Thursday Night Football game features the New York Giants (0-1) and the Washington Football Team aka the Redskins.  The Redskins won 30-29 in the last couple of seconds.  Wow.
  86. 2022 Friday:  Observation of the Day– Watching the disaster befall Vladimir Putin in Ukraine must be akin to how our parents and grandparents viewed hapless Il Duce Benito Mussolini’s disasters in Albania, Greece, and in North Africa during World War II- a total Schmeckel to be sure, all schlong and NO balls.  His main ally- Xi Jinping of communist China must be holding his feverish, sweaty head in both hands much like Der Fuhrer Adolf Hitler did when he realized that he had to either ‘fish’ or ‘cut bait.’  In Hitler’s case, he could or would not ‘cut bait’ and thus rushed to the side of his beleaguered ally much to his eventual destruction.  Putin is NO Josef Stalin- perhaps he would like to be- but he’s demonstrated that he is a total flop at motivating his soldiers to fight an unpopular war on foreign soil which is the BIG DISTINCTION in this little melodrama.  The Russian people have no desire to fight a foreign war even in a country next door and thus as the Ukrainians continue kicking butts and taking numbers, Russian soldiers are throwing down their arms and raising their hands in surrender- “NO MÁS” as boxer Roberto “Manos de Piedra” Duran proclaimed when “Sugar Ray” Leonard was kicking his ass.  So many Russian soldiers are surrendering that Putin cannot eradicate all of their families so the only question remaining is WHEN will one of his adjutants stride up behind him and cap him?  If it has not happened by the time this post goes live, it should and hopefully will soon as this loser deserves NOTHING less.  Besides, where is the United Nations?  I know my colleagues have raised this question and so far, they are nowhere to be seen.  Time to boot the U.N. out of the U.S. now.  Let me know YOUR opinion- Chef James “Jimmy” Hall.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from Cheap Trick was their most successful to date: “Dream Police” (September 21, 1979).  Although some critics panned the album, the LP was smoking hot with the underlying theme of jackbooted thugs penetrating the dreams of sleepers and monitoring them.  Once again, the band has the same quartet of Rick Nielsen (guitars, backing vocals), Robin Zander (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Tom Petersson (bass, backing vocals), Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion), as well as two accompanying musicians: Jai Winding (pianos, organs, synthesizers, keyboards), and Steve Lukather (guitar on one song).  The tunes rock from the opening track to the very last notes.  The songs include (1) “Dream Police” (2) “Way of the World” (3) “The House is Rocking (with Domestic Problems),” the astounding (4) “Gonna Raise Hell” (5)  “I’ll Be With You Tonight,” the absolutely lovely (6) “Voices” to (7)  “Writing on the Wall” (8) “I Know What I Want” to (9) “Need Your Love.”  This is an album every fan of the band and of rock-and-roll must own.  We love it, you will love it, everyone will love it.  Seek it out now- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

[i] 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.

[ii] At some point when we return to presenting the music of American bands, we will promote that of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers as well as of Tom Petty himself.  We hope you will await word as to when we do.  We thank you.

[iii] We hope to promote the music of this famous British band, T-Rex, sometime within the next five years.

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

[v] 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.

[vi] We promoted the music of not only Fairport Convention beginning on Monday, October 04, 2021, through Sunday, February 27, 2022, but also that of Richard and Linda Thompson, Fotheringay, Sandy Denny, Simon Nichol, and almost anyone else connected to this legendary band.

  22. 1945 Saturday: A U.S. Army bomber crashed into the 79th floor of the Empire State Building in New York City, killing 14 people and injuring many more.  Meanwhile, the Senate voted 89-2 ratifying the United Nations Charter.

  45. 2011 Thursday: Astronomers identify a Trojan asteroid orbiting on the same path as the Earth around the Sun; it poses no danger to Earth because it sits in a gravitational ‘sweet spot’.  Meanwhile, as the Obama administration continues its fight to get the debt ceiling raised so it can continue its out-of-control spending spree, U.S. House Speaker John Boehner, RINO-OH, puts the kibosh on a vote on the floor to do just that.  He says, ‘maybe tomorrow.’  Democrats are going berserk.

  49. 2015 Tuesday: According to Brainy History, Barack Obama becomes the first U.S. president to address the African Union, which includes 54 nations as members; the president emphasized the importance of growing economies, reducing corruption, increasing education, gay rights, and instituting democracy.
  50. 2016 Thursday:  News hits the cycle that the cops involved in the death of Freddie Gray, a well-known thug in Baltimore, are not going to face any charges.   Elsewhere, at the Democratic National Convention at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton accepts the nomination of her party for president.  Speakers at tonight’s big fiesta include Governor John Hickenlooper, DS-CO, Governor Tom Wolf, DS-PA, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo, DS-NY, Governor Mark Dayton, DS-MN, former first daughter and dimwit, Chelsea Clinton, and other notables.  Meanwhile, President Barack Hussein Obama calls on his fellow Democrats to support Hillary Rodham Clinton.
  51. 2017 Friday:  In the U.S. Senate, the GOP attempted to repeal Obamacare via a ‘skinny vote’ yet Sen. John McCain, a Republican, joins the Democrats to vote the measure down, final vote 51-49.  What a POS.  Barack Hussein Obama[ix] beat Sen. McCain like an old drum on Election Day in 2016, belittled him over the years, and yet, the old war horse- hating Donald Trump as much as he does- voted to keep the signature legislation of his political enemy.  Damned flipping RINOS!  Meanwhile, President Trump appoints General John Kelly his new chief-of-staff. [x]  
  52. 2018 Saturday: Having burnt more than 80,000 acres in its path, the out-of-control Carr Fire reaches Redding, California, claiming at least 5 lives, injuring countless others, and destroying numerous properties.  The liberal Democrats screech “GLOBAL WARMING!” yet everyone knows it is poor forest management as stipulated by the Democratic Party as well as their loathness about building dams and constructing water reclamation projects.
  53. 2019 Sunday: The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, is outed as the first guest editor at the United Kingdom version of Vogue Magazine, the first guest in 103 years.  She would bear partial responsibility with her husband, Prince Harry, for damaging the British Royal Family.  That is what you get when you marry an American skank.
  54. 2020 Tuesday: Much to the delight of their uber-left base, Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee overseeing ‘oversight’ on the Dept. of Justice rip U.S. Attorney-General Bill Barr a new one by asking questions and then disallowing the AG to answer them properly.  The amount of political grandstanding was absolutely horrible but then, those are the Democratic-Socialists who are destroying our country.  GOP committee members did their best to even the score but that becomes impossible when there are more, angry, hateful Dems on the committee than Republicans.  Elsewhere, “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s Prevagen must be working because after giving a speech, he even answered some questions, going off-script several times but not quite as much as we are generally used to seeing so either his handlers were putting in answers to pre-asked questions or the former vice president had a brief moment of lucidity.  He promised to make his VP choice known next week.
  55. 2020 Tuesday A: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 16,660,138 confirmed cases, UP by 263,184 cases, 658,813 confirmed deaths, UP by 6,911 deaths, and 9,699,116 confirmed recoveries, UP by 186,555 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 4,426,281 confirmed cases, UP by 58,202 new cases, 151,374 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,175 new deaths, and 2,151,219 confirmed recoveries, UP by 841,971 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries seems somewhat impossible as every day, the listed number of recoveries is extremely low.  Perhaps more states have reported recoveries yet if you look at the breakdown of the states, far fewer have reported so something is going on…).   
  56. 2020 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics 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: 466,550 confirmed cases, 8,518 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 1,757 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,205 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 54,205 confirmed cases, 1,548 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, the Empire State: 412,878 confirmed number of cases, 25,126 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.  Wake up, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo!  Give us the honest numbers you suck-eyed blowfish, especially of the senior citizens you have killed.  Shame on you.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 309,614 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 94,464 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xviii]        
  63. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.336 per gallon, $2.978 in Florida, $4.087 in Hawaii, and $3.839 in Washington state. [xix]    Let’s look at one other location- Illinois: $3.395.  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- Mali: $4.572 per U.S. Gallon.[xx]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,575,821,402,785 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Netherlands, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Israel with $49 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  64. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Folks, by our count, today is Day No. 127 for the purported ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the unmitigated disaster along our southern border and to have done absolutely NOTHING about it other than to say some stupid stuff here and then begin cackling like a rural crow.  It’s also Day No. 33 since her one and only visit to the border to view the crisis firsthand.  What an embarrassment to not only the country but to the entire flipping world.   Next, here are the numbers as presented by Pro-Freedom One America News: first, here is the cost this day for caring for the invaders: $584,652,608.  Second, here is the cost for caring for the alien invaders this year: $228,529,913,856.  Third, here is the number of illegal aliens who swept across the border just this year: 2,342,248.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE number of illegals estimated to be lurking within the shadows of the United States as we speak: 36,342,248.  Note- the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day has said from our inception back in the early spring of 2009 that the numbers THEN were around 35-50 million illegal aliens whereas now, we believe the numbers are closer to 75-to-100 million frigging illegal aliens.  Round them up, brand them, and then deport every single flipping one of the scoundrels back to the s—hole countries from whence they came.  NOW.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  65. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– The moron governor of California- Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom- struggling to keep his job- today granted Medi-Cal insurance to ALL illegal aliens in the state over the age of 50 which is around 250,000 of them at taxpayer costs.  We hope to get you out of office and then begin rounding this refuse up and sending it back to whence it came.  Bastards.
  66. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Imprisoned freedom fighter Alexei Navalny is urging ALL Russians to mobilize ahead of the September elections.   In other news, the fifth high-ranking Cuban military officer or politician has mysteriously died.  They must have been standing with the Cuban people against the totalitarian, communist government.  Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms are courting the Taliban so they can come into the hellhole of a country and rape it of its natural resources while constructing their Belt and Road communist takeover project.  (We hope the Chi-Coms become embroiled in yet another war in the so-called ‘graveyard of empires’ for at least 40 years- it would serve them right).   In other overseas news, for some unknown reason, Joe Biden is imposing NEW SANCTIONS on Syria.  Uh, okay.  WHY?  They are NOT our problem.
  67. 2021 Wednesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The National Football League is going to require vaccinated players to wear RED wristbands and unvaccinated players to wear YELLOW wristbands (while terminating coaches and staff who won’t get the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines).   In other Chi-Vi news, the U.S. House of Representatives physician, Dr. Brian Monahan, a Pelosi hack, has ordered EVERYONE to wear masks in the House.  NO exceptions.  Meanwhile, so-called ‘rare’ BREAKTHROUGH cases of the Chi-Vi are slamming into fully vaccinated citizens, something mumbling, stumbling old ‘Cho-Mo Joe’ Biden says is ‘impossible.’    
  68. 2021 Wednesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– In other Xi Jinping Bat Flu news, vaccinated U.S. travelers won’t have to quarantine upon arrival in Great Britain. Wow.  Elsewhere, New York City Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio gave up on giving people a free bag of French fries and is now offering $100 to anyone who will go out and get vaccinated.  F**k him.  Elsewhere, intelligent politicians and medical professionals have pointed out that the rates of hospitalizations for the China Virus are a better indicator as to how bad the ongoing pandemic is which means it is NOT as bad as what the Democrats are pushing because fewer people are being hospitalized for the Kung Flu.  Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci says he’s ‘not flipflopped, no, the virus has changed.’  Elsewhere, Dr. Alan Dershowitz, famed legal scholar, author, and professor said to Newsmax that the ‘courts will likely back COVID-19 vaccination mandates.’  Scary.  MARK OF THE BEAST to be sure… (Interesting note- Forbes Magazine reports that there are 40 NEW BILLIONAIRES who have become fabulously wealthy from the Chi-Com lab-generated pandemic).
  69. 2021 Wednesday K: Health and Medical Alerts– Meanwhile, as more images of COVID-19-infected illegal aliens appear across the country, more and more Americans on all sides of the political aisle are growing increasingly angrier.  There are reports of sick illegals being dumped all across the U.S.- most notably in RED states and cities- and left in the streets.  There, they spread not only the Wuhan Virus but other foul and detestable diseases that can or are causing a national health emergency.  A national reckoning is coming and it’s coming soon and with House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s margin being slashed to just THREE with the election of Republican Jake Ellzey, R-TX 6th congressional district, we hope that reckoning is coming and it’s coming soon.
  70. 2021 Wednesday L: Political News I– Top Democrats are encouraging brain-dead Joe Biden to negate $50,000 loan debt per student borrower.  This is more money the federal government is going to borrow from the Chi-Coms.  Talk about a National Security issue.  Man, oh, man.   In other news, the new DEATH TAX the Democratic-Socialist Party is proposing could cost 1 million jobs and $1 trillion of U.S. GDP over the next 10 years.  WTF is wrong with these SOBs?   In other news, Senate Republicans have agreed to $1 trillion in infrastructure spending. 
  71. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News II– Former Rep. Peter King, R-NY 2nd congressional district, said of House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, that she ‘stacked the January 06, 2021 (sham) select committee’ with a bunch of party apparatchiks and RINO Republicans.  Speaking of Mumbles, Rep. Chip Roy, R-TX 21st congressional district, lit up the House speaker over her demand that everyone wear masks while allowing millions of illegals into the country and then distributing them across the United States without masks and COVID-19 tests.  WTF is up with that?
  72. 2021 Wednesday N: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– An imbecile named Thomas Patrick Connally Jr. was charged in a Maryland federal court with threatening to murder Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci and his family as well as the National Institute of Health director, Dr. Francis Collins.  Apparently, the bonehead was sending threatening emails to Dr. Fauci, Dr. Collins, and to others and now must pay the piper.  There are always some in every crowd.  We would never call for anyone to be attacked, assaulted, raped, robbed, or beaten.  Like Democrats, we might participate in schadenfreude as do the Dems and frankly, millions of their supporters, we would never encourage any illegal act, even when we jokingly talk about ‘lead to the back of the head’ in the Annual Lavrentiy Beria contests.  It’s all for a hoot.  In other crime news, BIG DEMOCRAT donor (and big friend of the Clintons) Ed Buck from West Hollywood, California, was convicted on all nine counts of giving methamphetamine to young black men for sex, two of whom died.  Wow.   Finally, in Joe Biden’s America, convicted pedophile and rapist Dr. Larry Nassar received COVID-19 stimulus checks but has yet to pay restitution to his victims.  ONLY in Joe Biden’s America…speaking of Joe’s America, the Department of Justice is dropping investigations into nursing home deaths in Michigan and New York.
  73. 2021 Wednesday O: Big Tech News– Apple beats fiscal Q3 earnings expectations.  Likewise, Alphabet- the parent company of Google- is reporting surging ad revenues.   Speaking of Google, they are delaying the return of employees to their office while mandating ALL employees get one of the Chi-Vi vaccines before they do or to find another job.
  74. 2021 Wednesday P: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Sadly, today, famed bassist and vocalist with the ‘Little ole Band from Texas’- ZZ Top- Dusty Hill died in his sleep this morning at the age of 72.  He died in Houston, Texas, and his death was reported by his two band mates, Billy Gibbons and Frank Beard.  According to his wishes, the band will continue to perform their fiery brand of Texas-Deep South Blues.  God bless you, Dusty, have a glorious afterlife!
  75. 2021 Wednesday Q: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3581 what with a $11 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 20, 24, 32, 35, 39, and Mega 25.  Out of 85,662 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $7,862 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at (1) Valero, Salinas, CA 93906; (2) Smart & Final in Goleta, CA 93117; (3) Raley’s in Sacramento, CA 95826; and (4) Shell in Palmdale, CA 93551.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #867 with a jackpot of $186 million up for grabs: 25, 30, 53, 59, 60, and Powerball 05.  Stick around for the results.  Update: Out of 77,278 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $10,200.
  76. 2022 Thursday: California’s incredibly stupid governor, pretty boy Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom, has bitten off far more than his pursy little lips can chew: he has launched ads against Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida and Greg Abbott of Texas.  For some reason known only to his petulant little mind, Governor Newsom seems to believe he has a record on which to run.  Wrong!  His record is one of failure and the ONLY reason he survived his recall election is because the GOP did not get behind any of his opponents seeking to unseat the little prick.  I have said it before and will say it yet again: California is not a LOST state.  We are a state waiting to explode.  IF only the GOP would come in here and help us push Brian Dahle across the finish line, we could get this bum out of office.  Perhaps if the GOP won’t do it, we cannot wait to see the ads the governors of Texas and Florida are going to launch at him come late October.  Going to be some grisly but hilarious s**t, we expect.  Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys record label released “Carl and the Passions- So Tough” and “Holland” on one compact disc on April 21, 2003.  Here is the overview of each: The next album by the Beach Boys marked a distinct move into much more social consciousness that began on the preceding album.  The Beach Boys were touring college and university campuses, were all about conservation, the grandfather of today’s loony tunes ‘green movement.’  Beards were getting longer, hair well past the collars and what with the departure of Bruce Johnston- asked to leave because he would not grow a beard, embrace Transcendental Meditation- the band brought into South African musicians, BLACK MUSICIANS to complete the social consciousness move.  Thus, we have a new album, “Carl and the Passions- So Tough,” an album that came out on May 15, 1972.  The band now featured Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), Blondie Chapin (guitars, vocals), and Ricky Fataar (drums and vocals- Dennis was having hand problems due to a major cut that prevented him from pounding the skins).  Next, here is the overview of “Holland”:  The next album from the Beach Boys- “Holland”- came out on January 08, 1973 and was one of their best.  The band at this time had abandoned the West Coast for the Atlantic coast- in Holland- and produced some stunning material.  The lineup once again featured Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), Blondie Chapin (guitars, vocals), and Ricky Fataar (drums and vocals).  Every tune on this album is excellent.  For less than $20, you can add not one but two albums to your collection in one shot.  Enjoy.

[i] We began offering the musi of Pink Floyd beginning on Monday, 20-April-2020 through Sunday, 12-July-2020.  This included not only the band’s music but also that of all five members- Syd Barrett, Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Rick Wright, and Nicky Mason.

[ii] Not sure when exactly we will present the music of Elvin Bishop along with Electric Flag and Buddy Miles.

[iii] We presented another series of interconnected bands which included Free, Bad Company, Led Zeppelin, the Firm, Mott the Hoople, Ian Hunter, the Yardbirds, and a plethora of solo and group efforts beginning on Wednesday, 02-July-2014 through Sunday, 19-October-2014.  We definitely hope that you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your growing collection.

[iv] We hope to promote the music of this famous British band, T-Rex, sometime within the next five years.

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

[vi] When we present the music of the Allman Brothers Band, we will present the music of Gov’t Mule.  Stay tuned for further developments.

[vii] We hope to promote the music of both the Band and its members sometime in the next 10-15 years.  The presentation would include the solo catalogs of Robbie Robertson, Rick Danko, Levon Helm, Garth Hudson, and Richard Manuel.

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

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

[x] We would come to learn later that Gen. John Kelly was a dishonorable man who worked against the Trump agenda instead of working to help his boss.  The man is a disgraceful swamp creature and should spend the rest of his days living in shame.

[xi] 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)

(Note- a ‘purge’ might be coming soon…)

  62. 2018 Sunday: In Game 2 of the 2018 NBA Finals, the Golden State Warriors ended up pounding the snot out of the Cleveland Cavaliers by a final score of 122-103 with Step Curry hitting 9 three-pointers along with his other teammates delivering critical backup.  The fourth quarter became a rout and the Cavaliers ended up pulling their starters and sending their bench in for 4-5 minutes of garbage time.  Meanwhile, the nation’s 16th U.S. Secretary of Defense Frank Carlucci died at age 87 in McLean, Virginia.  A Republican, he served under President Ronald Reagan from 11-23-1987 to 01-20-1989.
  63. 2019 Monday: The government of Sudan draws international condemnation upon itself when its military opens fire on protesters in the streets of Khartoum.  The military is credited with the murders of at least 100 people, many of whose bodies were then tossed into the Nile River.  Hate to be downstream.
  64. 2020 Wednesday: President Donald J. Trump continues fighting the good fight alone.  On this day, his Defense Secretary Mark Esper distances himself from the commander-in-chief over the president’s trip to St. John’s Church across from the White House as a ‘photo op’ as well as the fact that he has suggested that ‘if governors don’t get their states under control, he might implement the Insurrection Act to force them to do so.  Former Defense Secretary General James “Mad Dog” Mattis slams the president in an article in Atlantic magazine while former President Barack Hussein Obama gives a statement on race relations in the United States and what must be done to solve them.
  65. 2020 Wednesday A: COVID-19, the Bat Flu Virus Crisis from communist China continues racking up numbers although with race relations on fire in the U.S., no one seems to give a hoot.  Here are the stats for the world: 6,393,956 confirmed cases, 383,318 confirmed deaths, and 2,786,615 confirmed recoveries.   In the United States, here are the numbers: 1,888,652 confirmed cases, 108,596 confirmed deaths, and 425,632 confirmed recoveries.

  68. 2021 Thursday A: Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 293,626 Chi-Vi deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 165,983 deaths

  72. 2021 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the four states in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.205 per gallon, $2.859 in Florida, $3.943 in Hawaii, and $3.584 in Washington state.[xvii]    Let’s look at one other location- Delaware: $2.978.  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- Vietnam: $3.257 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,364,012,078,749 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xix]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good.  NOTE- communist China owns approximately $1.1 trillion.[xx] 
  73. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– By our count, today is ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris’ 73rd day in this job and as of yet, she is a NO-SHOW.  Perhaps it’s duties as the new ‘equity czar’ (or whatever you want to call it) that are interfering with her fulfillment of her pre-existing duties.  We shall see.  Customs and Border Patrol says that for the month of April 17-thousand illegal alien brats were apprehended.  We say: load them onto planes, trains, buses, and freighters and send them back to Tegucigalpa and let the Central Americans sort them out.  Enough is enough.  Anyhow, One America News reports the following statistics: (1) Cost of illegal aliens to the American people for today: $527,980,864.  (2) Number of illegal aliens who have crossed just in 2021: 1,723,907.  (3) Total Cost of caring for illegal aliens this year alone: $168,199,241,728.  Finally, (4) Total number of illegals in the United States as of today (One America News count): 35,723,908.  (Note- since this blog began in 2009, we suggested there were anywhere between 35-50 million illegals in the country back then; now, we suspect that number is closer to 55-85 million illegal aliens sucking away at the teats of the American taxpayers.  They clog our schools, our hospitals, deplete our food banks, reap benefits to which the scum are not entitled, drive up rents, lower wages, and deplete jobs meant for Americans.  This simply must stop, and it must stop now.  Everyone- turn illegal aliens over to law enforcement or deal with them yourselves.
  74. 2021 Thursday G: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, And ‘Refugees’ News– News reports today say that ‘illegal aliens released from custody into the interior of the United States are now out there panhandling as they have no resources.’  Wow.  Hopefully, as these people weaken from malnutrition and lack of water, they will begin self-deporting.  What is clear is that the American people are not going to come to their aid.  Vamanos mojados!  (Note- a ‘purge’ might be coming soon…)
  75. 2021 Thursday H: Foreign News / Overseas News– More than 10,000 Olympics volunteers have quit.  However, organizers of the Tokyo Summer Olympics claim they will go on as scheduled which is in two months.  Meanwhile, we learned today that the Chi-Coms are paying American newspapers to publish their propaganda.  Wow.  We knew newspapers were having a hell of a time staying in business due to their far-left politics but had no idea they would sell our country out to Beijing.  Wow again.  Elsewhere, Georgia gubernatorial candidate Vernon Jones says that ‘the U.S. must stand with Israel and with Jewish Americans.’
  76. 2021 Thursday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information– As the emails of Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci continue hitting the news cycle, there is increasing demand for the political hack to come before Congress and answer questions over his ties to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, his cover-up of the Chi-Coms’ gain of function studies with the bat viruses, and his actions since the pandemic began.  Sadly- for him- the American people now know that he is little more than a pollical operative who could have helped President Donald J. Trump negate the pandemic in the U.S. sooner than he was able to and note- he acted unilaterally extremely fast to halt the inflow of people from communist China and from Europe.  “Phony Tony” has much for which to answer and as the highest-paid bureaucrat in Washington, D.C., he must start answering questions NOW.
  77. 2021 Thursday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Now that we have a usurper in the White House, medical science now feels it’s okay to tell the American people that- God forbid!- Hydroxychloroquine, aka Plaquenil, increases COVID-19 survival rates by 100-percent (which we already knew) and that it both shortens the length of the illness and its severity.   In other news, former Florida Rep. and current director for the American Center for Political Leadership Dennis Ross says that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci has done more than anyone else to politicize the Xi Jinping Bat Flu than anyone else in the United States.  Regarding little “Phony Tony,” President Donald J. Trump says that with ‘Fauci exposed, the Chi-Coms owe the United States alone $10 trillion for causing the pandemic.’  Amen.  Elsewhere, Francis Collins, director of the National Institute of Health, is striving to cover his ass by calling for a probe into what the Chi-Coms at the Wuhan Institute of Virology knew and when did they know it?  Finally, “Phony Tony” says that ‘President Donald J. Trump deserves credit for the Chi-Vi vaccines but so do other presidents.’  What?  What other presidents had a hand in Operation Warp Speed?
  78. 2021 Thursday K: Joe Biden Regime News I– Senator Shelley Moore Capito, R-W. Va, continues meeting with the Biden regime to negotiate an infrastructure deal.  “Mumbling, Stumbling Old Joe” still demands ONE TRILLION DOLLARS FOR INFRASTRUCTURE (so says Barack Obama’s voice in his earpiece) but claims he will lower his demand for a 28-percent tax on corporations.  (Note- the Bidenistas, however, are hard at work at getting the G7 to agree to a global tax on corporations of around 28-percent so this is a bogus area of negotiation).   In other regime news, Joe Biden still hasn’t appointed permanent leaders to oversee BIG TECH.  (Note- he will pick some loser seeing as how BIG TECH owns the Biden regime).  Next, the regime has ordered NO investment in Chi-Com firms connected to the Chinese Communist Party, the Chi-Com military, or surveillance.[xxi] 
  79. 2021 Thursday L: Business News– A recent study says that ‘unemployment claims in Florida are down 97-percent from last year.’  You go, Florida, you go.  Speaking of unemployment across the country, last week, first time filings for jobless benefits dropped to 385,000.  Meanwhile, initial reports say the U.S. added 985,000 jobs in May.  Excellent.  Question- are they ‘hamburger-flipper jobs?’  Democrats always deride those sorts of jobs when Republicans are in the White House.  Elsewhere, Dogecoin price jumps amid Coinbase debut what with Dogecoin being the 6th most valuable cryptocurrency.
  80. 2021 Thursday M: Political News I– “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis, R-FL, signs into law a $101 billion spending bill for Florida in 2022.  Next, extremely popular U.S. Senator John Kennedy, R-LA, announced today that he is going to seek a second term.  Congratulations.  Speaking of Louisiana, state lawmakers pass a bill allowing its citizens to conceal carry handguns sans a license.  The bill will move to the desk of Governor John Bel Edwards, D-LA. Moving on, President Donald J. Trump is going to be the headliner at North Carolina’s GOP convention and will speak on Saturday, June 5, 2021, in Greenville.  Meanwhile, Rep. Nancy Mace, R-SC 1st congressional district, says that the Biden regime’s agenda will help the GOP retake both houses of Congress in 2022.  (Note- this is why the regime wants to legalize 11 million new illegal aliens as citizens).  Speaking of Rep. Mace, conservative icon Todd Starnes says of Mace that Snopes labeled the recent attack on the Rep.’s home a ‘rumor.’  Wow.
  81. 2021 Thursday N: Political News II– A new poll says that a majority of Americans support the DEATH PENALTY.  Next, Rep. Thomas Massie, R-KY 4th congressional district, says of the U.S. House of Representatives dictate that ‘everyone must wear a mask’ as being NOTHING but political theater.  Elsewhere, things just keep piling on: former Rep. Katie Hill, DS-CA 25th congressional district, finds herself forced by a judge to pay $219 thousand in legal fees over a revenge porn case.  As you recall, Rep. Hill was forced to relinquish her seat after being involved in various sexual liaisons with numerous people including campaign staffers and office staffers.  Poor Katie.  Boohoo.  In other Democrat loser news, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov, won a lawsuit lodged against him over his totalitarian lockdowns and restrictions in the Empire State.  However, the courts have ordered California to pay $2 million in damages for its harsh lockdowns of Golden State churches.   Elsewhere, Rep. Nicole Malliotakis, R-NY 11th congressional district, says it’s a ‘national disgrace to fly the Black Lives Matter flag at U.S. embassies around the world.’  Finally, Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, says the Biden regime’s dictate of NO fireworks at Mt. Rushmore this July 4, 2021, is because the ‘left hates celebrating America.’  Amen.
  82. 2021 Thursday O: Political News III– Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, is co-sponsoring the “Only Old Glory Act” that will ban all other flags- like the LGBTQIA+ flag, the Black Lives Matter flags, and other flags at ALL U.S. government buildings, embassies, and other structures around the world and in the country.  In other news, we continue hearing reports that actor Matthew McConaughey might run for governor of Texas, but NO one knows for what he stands.  HOW ABOUT TELLING THE WORLD WTF YOU STAND FOR, BOY?  Meanwhile, we hear a new report that says that AFTER Rep. Liz Cheney, R-WY at large district, had to spend $58,000 on private security, she was so afraid of Trump supporters.  Folks, recall this woman from office NOW.   Finally, U.S. Postmaster General Louis DeJoy has confirmed that he is the subject of an FBI investigation (2020 Elections bull crap) and denies any wrongdoing.  
  83. 2021 Thursday P: Political News IV– Texas lawmakers canceled Dallas Mavericks’ owner Mark Cuban’s anti-National Anthem kibosh.  Cuban is a POS and what’s more, he should move his Karl Marx-loving ass to Beijing where they will gladly take this reprobate loser in and make him one of theirs.  Speaking of Beijing- which we seem to do all the time now- Rep. Jim Hagedorn, R-MN 1st congressional district, says that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci could very well be ‘covering up for the Chi-Coms when it comes to the origins of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu and what hand- if any- the political hack had in loosing it upon the world.  Meanwhile, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, won a challenge to campaign reimbursement rules.  A three-judge panel said it’s okay for a candidate to use campaign contributions to reimburse personal money he put into his political campaign.  Democrats are wailing and sniveling over this BIG WIN!
  84. 2021 Thursday Q: Miscellaneous News I–  One of the last- IF not the last- attorney on the so-called “Dream Team” involved in the infamous O.J. Simpson murder trial back in 1995, F. Lee Bailey, died today at age 87.  Over the course of his lifetime, he defended numerous BIG-NAME personalities and celebrities.  Next, gay journalist Andy Ngo snuck into his hometown of Portland, Oregon, and got yet another beat-down from Antifa.  He was able to seek refuge in a hotel while a howling mob of slavering lunatics tried to get in to lynch the dumb bastard.  YOU can’t go home, Andy, these people want to KILL YOU.  Elsewhere, the Food and Drug Administration is encouraging the American people NOT to eat cicadas (who the hell is eating flipping bugs- we aren’t the Chi-Coms) if one is allergic to seafood.  (Note- anyone who eats insects in this country should be scooped up and deported to communist China).  
  85. 2021 Thursday R: U.S. Supreme Court News– For the first time since being seated on the U.S. Supreme Court, newest Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett sided against Associate Justice Clarence Thomas.  The case concerning computer law, namely a Georgia law enforcement officer Sgt. Nathan Van Buren was in trouble for violations of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1986 in that he was paid money to do a search on a license plate using his police department computer.  Lower courts said what he did was a violation of not just state law but federal law and thus his case eventually made its way to SCOTUS.   Coney not only joined in the 6-3 decision but also wrote the majority opinion.  The three justices in opposition were Chief Justice John Roberts and Associate Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito. 
  86. 2021 Thursday S: Whacked-Out News Of The Day– two things- one we heard yesterday and one today.  Yesterday, we learned that enfeebled Robert S. Mueller III, chief ankle-biting dog for the Democrats, is going to teach a course on the BOGUS Trump-Russia collusion narrative at the University of Virginia School of Law.  What a farce.  Today, we learned that Rep. Alexandria “Baby Evita” Ocasio-Cortez, aka the Fly, aka Sandy Cortez (birthname), CPUSA-NY 14th congressional district, is bitching and moaning about the condition of her pobrecita abuelita’s home in Puerto Rico.  Apparently, the place is a DUMP, and the little communist is blaming President Donald J. Trump for not making things ‘right’ after Hurricane Maria.  As Greg Kelly on Newsmax so rightly pointed out, “Girl, you are in Congress, you own a Tesla (rental most likely), and there are nearly 14 Home Depot stores across the island so get your lazy, hypocritical butt down there and fix her home yourself.’  (We augmented his words with ours).  Look, this is how communists are- they blame everyone else for their wrongdoings, misdoings, mistakes, you name it, they blame it (read George Orwell’s “Animal Farm”).  Look, “Fly,” shut the hell up and send your granny some money.  
  87. 2021 Thursday T: The Wrap-Up– First, a Singapore-flagged vessel carrying hazardous chemicals has broken up off the coast of Sri Lanka.  There goes their tourism industry.  In other news, the intersection where George Floyd died in Minneapolis has been reopened.  Thus, it would appear that ‘George Floyd Square’ is no mas.  Ah, well, c’est la vie.  Next, as ‘vacation season’ arrives in the era of COVID-19, everything is going up besides the price of gasoline.  Rentals and airlines tickets and everything else associated with Americans enjoying themselves is going up, up, and up thanks to the bumbling ineptitude of the Biden regime.
  88. 2022 Friday: What could be going on today?  Stick around and find out along with us.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On November 19, 1973, the Beach Boys released perhaps one of the best live albums of the decade, “The Beach Boys In Concert.”  The live lineup features Mike Love (vocals), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (electric piano and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), Blondie Chapin (guitars, vocals), and Ricky Fataar (drums and vocals), augmented by their supporting cast of Billy Hinsche (guitar, keyboards), Ed Carter (bass), Robin Kenyatta (woodwinds), Carl Muñoz (keyboards), and Mike Kowalski (drums and percussion).  From start to finish, this album demonstrates what a powerful live act the Beach Boys became in the early-to-mid 1970s.  We can remember seeing them in downtown Bakersfield, California, around this time and the crowd was going insane from the opening riffs of “Sail On Sailor” to the closer, “Fun, Fun, Fun.”  Every song one loves and then some are included here.  We remember back in the day a bootleg Beach Boys album that came out around the time “Surf’s Up” did, entitled, “Re-Surfin’ USA.”  It is too bad that those songs were not added to this in a beefed-up version because that album was amazing being in superb sound quality.  Ah, well, we hope that everyone will seek this one out wherever you shop for the finest in music and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

2007 Sunday: In the war against Hamas, Palestinians claim that an Israeli Defense Force warplane lit up the home of a Hamas ‘lawmaker’- Khalil al-Haya.

Eisenhower to fill Robert H. Jackson’s seat, is born in Chicago, Illinois, on this date.  He served from March 17, 1955, to September 23, 1971.  Meanwhile, taxi driver Jacob German of New York City became the first driver to undergo arrest for speeding.  The posted speed limit was 8 miles per hour when he was driving along at the whopping speed of 12 MPH in his electric vehicle.  It is interesting to note that the police officer who pulled him over on Manhattan’s Lexington Avenue was riding a bicycle.  
  22. 1902 Tuesday: The United States ended a three-year military presence in Cuba as the people established the Republic of Cuba under its first elected president, Tomas Estrada Palma—the United States should have made it a state.
  23. 1916 Saturday: Norman Rockwell’s first cover on The Saturday Evening Post appeared.

  29. 1941 Tuesday: During World War II, German troops invade the Mediterranean island of Crete to strangle British forces in North Africa.  German and Italian air and naval assets pummel the islands while paratroopers begin landings across the island.  Resistance is fierce and the Brits are giving as good as they get.  Still, it is only a matter of time.
  30. 1942 Wednesday: During World War II, the Office of Civilian Defense was established.  On the Eastern Front, German armored units are pushing the remaining Red Army forces out of the eastern Crimea where they had established bridgeheads on the Kerch Peninsula in preparation for what they thought would be a massive counterstroke against their Fascist enemies.  Perhaps another time…
  31. 1943 Thursday: Axis forces continue pushing back Soviet counterthrusts in the Ukraine.  Meanwhile, both the Germans and their Russian enemies are building up their forces for the big summer Battle of Kursk.  Both sides believe that when the opposing sides meet, whoever wins the battle will win the war.

  33. 1945 Sunday: Heavy fighting continues on Okinawa as the American forces have to clear every spider hole, every trench line, and every cave.  The Japanese resist until the very end when flamethrowers and napalm clear them out of their firing positions.  It is a horrible, brutal affair.  Meanwhile, in Mainland China, Japanese forces begin strategic withdrawals of their troops so as to consolidate more defensible positions.  They are aware that with the collapse of the Nazis, Soviet forces will soon be redeploying to Asia to keep their bargain with the Western Allies- the invasion of northern China and Mongolia.
  34. 1946 Monday: Future star with Sonny and Cher[ii] as well as a solo superstar, Cher, is born in El Centro, California, on this date.
  35. 1947 Tuesday: In Great Britain, the future bassist for the British Glam-Rock band, T-Rex, is born.  He would perform with this band and with others until he was killed in Portugal in an automobile accident in April 1981.
  36. 1948 Thursday: During their War of Independence, the Israeli Air Force appears for the first time, helping to win a victory over the struggling Syrian army.

  51. 2002 Monday: East Timor becomes the world’s newest independent state.  Welcome to the world.
  52. 2003 Tuesday: Here is something to chew on: the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency- aka DARPA- presents its report to the U.S. Congress.  In it, they announce that the Total Information Awareness program- one millions of Americans believe is compiling dossiers on them will change its name to the Terrorist Information Awareness program henceforth so the American people will be lulled into complacency.  The feds hope that everyone will believe that with the name change, everything is hunky-dory and that President George W. Bush’s spies are no longer surveilling them.  Wow.  What a load of crap.  We are entering a police state as we speak.
  53. 2004 Thursday: The George W. Bush administration is applying pressure on its fellow U.N. Security Council to renew Resolution 1487 which shields U.S. military personnel and officials from prosecution by the International Criminal Court.  (Note- why does the United States worry about this crap when the Russians, Muslims, and even the Chi-Coms and North Koreans don’t?  Kind of goofy to us).

  67. 2018 Sunday: In the socialist hellhole of Venezuela, President Nicolas Maduro wins re-election in a questionable election marked by boycotts, protests, and massive accusations of vote-rigging.  The guy must be a Democrat.
  68. 2019 Monday: Google supposedly ends its support for communist China’s Huawei Android phone system as tensions between the United States and the counterfeit socialist nation deteriorate.
  69. 2020 Wednesday: Beijing is sniveling and whining that everyone is calling the Chinese Virus “the Chinese Virus,” but it is the Chinese Virus as it came to us from the hinterlands of Wuhan, China, and it continues killing people around the planet as we speak and allowing totalitarian leaders to increase their grip on their populations.  Here are the stats for the globe today: 4,968,689 number of confirmed cases, 326,515 number of confirmed deaths, and 1,885,535 number of confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have (thanks to communist China) 1,581,903 confirmed cases, 93,806 confirmed deaths, and 301,341 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which, the AICPENDBLOG.COM- the old American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day, formerly at Google Blogger (scumbags), California, Hawaii, and Washington state, here are the stats, the Golden State first: 81,795 confirmed cases, 3,334 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are Hawaii’s stats: 643 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 578 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are Washington state’s stats: 18,923 confirmed cases, 1,037 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, liberal Blue State governors continue freeing criminals from prisons and jails, supposedly out of fear of COVID-19, but in truth, seeking to punish their enemies.  Is a second Civil War coming?  It sure looks that way, thanks to communist China.
  70. 2021 Thursday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 165,787,275 confirmed cases, +600,349, 3,442,817  confirmed deaths, +11,429 and 146,428,311 confirmed recoveries, +76,410.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,828,841 confirmed cases, UP 25,874 from yesterday’s reporting, 602,533 confirmed deaths, UP 576,[vii] and 27,351,977 confirmed recoveries, UP 56,454.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[viii]   
  71. 2021 Thursday A: NOTE: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 286,128 Chi-Vi deaths in the United States- President Biden, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 173,481 deaths.   In other Chi-Vi-related news, lawmakers are asking WHY House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, possibly more senile than the 46th president is, won’t update the MASK DICTATE when the Centers for Disease Control says, ‘MOST Americans no longer have to wear masks (not that we ever truly did).’  The amazing thing is that when the Democrats believe the cameras are turned off, the masks come off.  What a load of festering fecal matter.  
  72. 2021 Thursday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,773,860 confirmed cases, 62,787 confirmed deaths, and 2,016,574 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,302,489 confirmed cases, 36,357 confirmed deaths, and 1,907,722 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 35,585 confirmed cases, 492 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 427,372 confirmed cases, 5,733 confirmed deaths, and 209,253 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., New York: they have 2,141,067 confirmed cases, 53,341 confirmed deaths, and 2,638,064 confirmed recoveries.[ix]

  75. 2021 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.153 per gallon, $2.884 in Florida, $3.889 in Hawaii, and $3.553 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- West Virginia: $2.993.  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- Colombia: $2.313 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,309,522,043,913 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  76. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Today is Day 59 for Border Czar “Kooky Kamala” Harris NOT to visit the southern border.  Meanwhile, rumors of maltreatment and mistreatment of illegal aliens in holding pens along the southern border continue to grow and the federal government has closed two facilities with dire records of mistreatment of the incarcerated illegals.  Elsewhere, video is beginning to leak out of illegal alien dumps at various airports around the country in the dead of night.  Chef Lilah who has a relative working at the airport in Honolulu says that illegal alien brats are arriving at least once a week in flights who are then being distributed around the Hawaiian Islands.  This simply must stop. 
  77. 2021 Thursday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– Hamas and Hezbollah are crying uncle.  A ceasefire negotiated by the Joe Biden regime and Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah el-Sissi has brought a halt to the ongoing clash of Good (Israel) and Evil (Hamas and Hezbollah).  The Israelis have eliminated most of the tunnels that Palestinian leadership devotes massive amounts of donated money to construct rather than giving their people better lives.  The Israels also have taken out numerous Hamas military sites and as many Hamas scumbags as possible.  God bless you!   Meanwhile, a Chinese Communist Party-linked professor says that ‘COVID-19 was indeed a Chi-Com biological weapons attack on the United States.’  Hell, we have been saying that since it began gaining steam in early 2020!  Senior Researcher Chen Ping of China Institute of Fudan University said that ‘(communist) China defeated the U.S. in a biological war in 2020.’  What more flipping evidence does the world need to understand that the primary target was President Donald J. Trump, and the primary beneficiary was “Pro-China Joe” Biden?  OPEN YOUR EYES.
  78. 2021 Thursday H: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– Dr. Kelli Ward, chair of the Arizona GOP, says that it would appear that more and more evidence demonstrates that the 2020 Elections in the Copper State most likely were corrupt and fraudulent in Maricopa County and that it is possible that Joe Biden could be proven to be the counterfeit that he is.  We hope to see a great outcome which is why the Arizona Democratic Party is doing everything it can to defy the ongoing audit as is the despicable Dominion Voting Systems out of Canada.  We believe the Canadian government must order them to comply with all requests from the ongoing Grand Canyon State audit.   (Note- George Soros-funded Sheriff Paul Penzone, DS, is fighting the auditors by putting as much blockage in their way.  When the hell is this country going to do something to Mr. Soros?)  Finally, the D.A. in Fayette City, Pennsylvania, has launched a probe into WHY Dominion Voting Systems machines flipped ONLY GOP ballots over to Democrats in the last election.  Bit by bit, more information continues coming out that we believe is going to show that the Democrats stole 2020.  Hence, why is there this determination to continue strengthening Fort Pelosi in Washington, D.C.?  They know they got away with a stolen election.
  79. 2021 Thursday I: Joe Biden Regime News I– the Biden regime directs U.S. agencies to assess and to then mitigate the effects of ‘climate change.’  Uh, okay, what a waste of time.   Next, all of the Biden regime’s misfires has led to problems in the U.S.-Israeli relationship.  Speaking of Israel, Joe’s pal, Senator Bernie Sanders, DS-VT, is offering legislation to BLOCK the $735 million sale of weapons to the Israelis.  (Note- what more evidence does one require to know that Bernie is a self-hating Jew?)  Also related to Israel, GOP lawmakers are calling on Mr. Biden to strengthen U.S. ties with Israel.  In other regime news, the Bidenistas say the Chi-Coms won’t release data from their now infamous Wuhan Biological Warfare Lab.
  80. 2021 Thursday J: Political News I– The University of North Carolina has denied 1619 Project founder, Nikole “Bozo the Clown” Hannah-Jones tenure because this woman is- in the language of the young and dumb- cray-cray.  Good for them.  Educated, fair-minded people must begin pushing back on these racist nuts before they destroy our country.  Boot this bi**h into the nearest dumpster.  Speaking of educated, non-racist folks, a new study finds that 35-percent or more conservative thinkers are better educated and better informed on both current events and past events.  Liberal news watchers are much-less educated and aware of the truth of anything.  Speaking of liberal bias, Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-TX 2nd congressional district, calls out the mainstream news media- what Dave Rubin labels ‘corporate news media’- over its coverage of events.
  81. 2021 Thursday K: Political News II– While the Democrats continue pressing ahead with socialism, House GOP leaders held a Cuban independence day event.  The people of Cuba deserve their freedom while the American people do not deserve being forced into communism via the backdoor of socialism. Meanwhile, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district, lambasted the Democrats’ establishment of the ‘January 06, 2021, Commission’ as being little more than ‘impeachment 3.0.  Amen.  In fact, ZERO people have been charged with insurrection.  NONE.  The National Republican Congressional Committee raised $11.2 million in the month of April.   Elsewhere, people are asking questions as to WHY Governor “Gravel Gertie” Gretchen Whitmer just shut down the state’s Line 5 that provides propane for much of Michigan for home heating?  WTF is occurring here.
  82. 2022 Friday: Everyone knows the drill- stick around with us and discover the truth…the way things are going, we may have to make nice with China because things are going to hell here in the United States in a handbasket what with WOKE this and WOKE that and here a WOKE and there a WOKE, everywhere a WOKE-WOKE-WOKE…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

“Pet Sounds” came out on May 16, 1966 and was the commercial pinnacle of the Beach Boys.  No longer touring with his brothers, cousin, and friends, Brian was in the studio with session musicians and lyricists and created perhaps one of the all-time greatest albums in the annals of modern, popular music.  From start to finish, the album was a tapestry of musical influences, stories, feelings, and emotions all interwoven with one another.  When the Beatles heard this album, it is reported that they were awed at what they had to compete.  Of course, they would be working on “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.”  The tunes include nothing but memorable hits such as “Wouldn’t It be Nice,” “You Still Believe in Me,” “Don’t Talk (Put Your Head on my Shoulder),” “Sloop John B,” “God Only Knows,” and “Caroline, No.”  We hope you will seek this album out and make it a part of your daily musical rotation because it will indeed grow upon- not only your ears- but your heart, mind and soul.  Check it out now- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

Currently, Joe is shy 182,837 deaths.

  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.

  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.

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.

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

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

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

  54. 2008 Friday: Reuters confirms that for the first time in a flipping century, snow falls on Baghdad, Iraq.  Wow.  That damned global warming is destroying the planet.

  57. 2011 Tuesday: New protests break out in Tunis, the capital of Tunisia, over no jobs, high unemployment.  This unrest leads to the deaths of at least 53 people and countless injuries to numerous others.  This is not good.  Meanwhile, like all authoritarian regimes, Iranian state TV broadcasts the traumatic ‘confession’ of Majid Jamali-Fash, the man the Iranian regime conspired with Israeli Mossad agents to carry out the targeted hit on a peace-loving University of Tehran physics professor, Masoud Alimohammadi. 
  58. 2012 Wednesday: According to Israel’s military establishment, the country is preparing for an increase of Syrian refugees into the Golan Heights.  Elsewhere, following the blowing up of an Iranian nuclear scientist, the U.S. waves off Iranian charges of complicity.  Meanwhile, POS murdering thug Joran van der Sloot pleads guilty to the murder of a Peruvian woman of high rank within that country- her father is in government.  The Aruban scumbag got away with the murder of Natalie Holloway, but he was unable to escape these charges.
  59. 2013 Friday: In Sri Lanka, the parliament passes a motion to impeach the chief justice on the nation’s Supreme Court, Shirani Bandaranayke.  Elsewhere, the government of Central African Republic strikes a ceasefire with Islamist rebels who have been running amok following a month of negotiations.  This would lead to a new coalition government.

  62. 2016 Monday: At the University of Phoenix Stadium, #2 Alabama beats #1 Clemson 45-40 to win the College Football National Championship.  What an exciting game.  Elsewhere, in Baghdad, Iraq, jihadists affiliated with ISIS carry out a bombing attack on a marketplace which blows up at least 51 people and wounding numerous others.  The site ISIS assaulted was reported to be an ‘illegal casino,’ something the goody-two-shoes Islamists cannot tolerate- people having fun.  Meanwhile, protesters in Germany take to the streets to protest the thousands of sexual assaults that Muslim refugees allowed into the country by Chancellor Angela Merkel committed on New Year’s Eve, especially in Leipzig and Cologne.
  63. 2017 Wednesday: Following Chi-Com naval exercises in the South China Sea, the Taiwanese navy and air force scrambles to counter the PRC naval flotilla led by the aircraft carrier Liaoning sails through the Taiwan Straits on the way to its home port.  Elsewhere, President-elect Donald J. Trump holds his first post-election press conference in New York City.
  64. 2018 Thursday: Walmart announces that it’s going to increase its entry level wage to $11 an hour but will also close 50 Sam’s Club stores.  Elsewhere, in Santa Barbara County, California, the county sheriff says that ‘at least 43 people are still missing following Tuesday’s humongous mudslides in Montecito.  Heavy rains has weakened soil on fire-ravaged mountains which sent the sticky flows rushing down mountainsides and into homes.  Meanwhile, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange- who has been hiding out at the Ecuadoran Embassy in London since August 2012- has been granted Ecuadoran citizenship. 
  65. 2019 Friday: ISIS carries out a car bombing at a public marketplace in the town of Al-Qaim which kills two people outright and wounds another 25 or so.  The so-called ‘religion of peace’ strikes again.  Elsewhere, federal government employees miss their first paycheck due to the ongoing federal government shutdown.  At least 800,000 nonessential workers will go without their pay (although as soon as government reopens, the checks- with interest- flow into their bank accounts).
  66. 2020 Saturday: In the AFC Division Game, the Tennessee Titans blow out the Baltimore Ravens 28-12 to move to the AFC Championship Game while in the NFC Division Game, the San Francisco 49ers whoop the Minnesota Vikings 27-10.  Elsewhere, former New York City Michael Bloomberg says he’s ‘open to spending $1 billion to defeat President Donald J. Trump.’  What a guy.   Meanwhile, the Iranians admit they screwed up when they shot down a Ukrainian airliner flying out of Tehran on January 8 when they began launching missiles at U.S. bases in neighboring Iraq.  They fired antiaircraft artillery at the plane they thought was American or American cruise missiles coming in, killing all 176 people aboard the doomed craft. 
  67. 2021 Monday: A New York state attorneys group is moving to disbar “America’s Mayor” and President Donald J. Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, for his part in the ‘Storming the Capitol Building 2021” so-called ‘insurrection.’  Next, the U.S. Supreme Court nixes a ‘fast-track’ for all of President Trump’s election fraud cases.  Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi continues urging Vice President Mike Pence to utilize the 25th Amendment so he and the Cabinet can remove a ‘extremely dangerous president from office before he can cause further harm to the country.’  Not going to happen, “Mumbles,” not going to happen. Speaking of the senile House speaker, she has ONE ARTICLE of impeachment against the 45th president ready to go which Talk Radio GIANT Rush Limbaugh presumes to be the opening round in negotiations to get Trump out of office in exchange for no prosecutions against him or members of his family for all time provided he never runs again.  This could be true, but we doubt President Trump will give in to his worst political enemy.
  68. 2021 Monday A: The jabbering mullahs in Tehran warn the world they have all sorts of missile bases along their coastline with all manner of weapons heretofore unseen in the history of the world, weapons that can defy the weapons of every other nation.  Bulls**t.  They use a lot of Styrofoam and paint to create the ‘illusion’ they have the best weapons in the world.  We say, “NUKE THEM.  NOW!”  Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms deny forcible abortions and sterilizations of minority women in their country.  We here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM say they are following ‘more the Nazi-Fascist model’ than they are the one espoused by founder Mao Zedong and his brand of Marxism- Maoism.  Meanwhile, Beijing threatens a ‘counterstrike’ on the U.S. for defying their ‘blockade’ of Taiwan over the U.S. lifting restrictions on U.S.-Taiwan, aka Republic of China (the REAL China), relations.  Finally, the U.S. designates Cuba a state sponsor of terrorism and the Houthi rebels in Yemen as a TERRORIST GROUP.
  69. 2021 Monday B: In other foreign news, the Chi-Coms propaganda ministry slams President Donald J. Trump and the New York Stock Exchange over their delisting and holding accountable numerous Chi-Com firms in league with the Chi-Com military.  The Beijing mouthpieces claim that in doing so, the U.S. is ‘actually hurting itself through delisting these companies.’  Give us a break.  Wah, wah, wah.  Meanwhile, the outgoing U.S. Trade Adviser Robert Lighthizer urges the incoming ‘Pro-China Joe” Biden administration to maintain the tariffs on the Chi-Coms.  Sadly, we know “Pro-China Joe” will rip them off the moment he assumes office.
  70. 2021 Monday C: ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden names ex-diplomat and former U.S. ambassador to Russia William Burns to head the Central Intelligence Agency.   Next, we learn that the theme of ‘Pro-China Joe’s’ Inauguration Day will be “AMERICA UNITED,” even as he won’t discourage House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi from impeaching President Trump again.  Speaking of Trump and things associated with Trump, the U.S. Army is investigating an officer who led a group to Washington, D.C., to protest the stolen election.  The officer being investigated is Captain Emily Rainey, a psy-ops warfare specialist stationed at Ft. Bragg.  Next, the PGA is canceling a contract between President Trump’s Bedminster Course and the organization, one that would have seen the 2022 PGA Championship played there.  Wow.
  71. 2021 Monday D: The U.S. Supreme Court rebuffed a bid to establish universal mail-in voting across the Lone Star State.  Next, following its ban on President Donald J. Trump and its participation in the war against Parler, Twitter’s shares drop by an astounding 7-percent.  Not good for them.  Even more interesting, noted Trump critic, German Chancellor Angela Merkel says that ‘President Trump’s eviction from Twitter is problematic.’  It’s okay for the Iranians to talk about killing everyone but President Trump sharing his mind is EVIL and must be stopped.  What a load of crap.  Good for you, Herr Chancellor.  Speaking of Twitter, after their San Francisco headquarters calls cops because there are a few people outside the facility protesting their actions against Trump, Jack Dorsey calls for police protection.  
  72. 2021 Monday E: Elsewhere in the world, the Saudi Crown Prince Mohamed Bin Salman is planning a city that won’t have automobiles for the ‘future beyond oil.’   Meanwhile, the most unpopular pontiff in modern times- Pope Francis- issues a decree permitting women greater roles in the church but still won’t permit priests to marry.  What a guy.  Elsewhere, the world’s biggest companies announce they will suspend donations to ALL U.S. lawmakers who voted AGAINST the certification of ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden and ‘Kooky Kamala’ Harris.  My, my, my- the cancel culture strikes again.   Finally, GOP Congressman Vernon Jones of Georgia warns ‘Pro-China Joe’ that impeaching Trump again is not going to heal the country.’
  73. 2021 Monday F: President Donald J. Trump will be in Texas today celebrating the construction of 400 miles of border security fencing and walls along the border with Mexico.  Meanwhile, the first lady of the United States Melania Trump roundly condemns the Capitol Hill violence that occurred this past Wednesday.   Elsewhere, as alarms continue being raised at the omnipotent power of an ever-growing BIG TECH, Parler says it’s going to sue Amazon.com for violations of U.S. antitrust laws.   Finally, the Capitol Hill Police Department names a new acting chief of police- Deputy Chief Yogananda Pittman.  Regarding the Capitol Hill cops failure to quell the riots of Wednesday, January 06, 2021, outgoing chief and fall guy for the debacle Chief Steven Sund says he sought help from local and federal law enforcement SIX times which should tell everyone the entire event was orchestrated and coordinated by the left. Finally, famed NFL football coach Bill Belichick is going to receive the Medal of Freedom, the highest award for a civilian[xi].
  74. 2021 Monday G:  One year on from the first death of the infamous Chi-Vi, the People’s Republic of (Communist) China still won’t provide answers to the world.  Meanwhile, questions continue swirling around Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo as to WHY tens of thousands of precious COVID-19 vaccines- vaccines this POS begged for- are ending up in the garbage dumpsters across the state, unused, out-of-date, and spoiled.  Boy, would we love to see this POS wearing an orange jumpsuit doing time in a federal supermax penitentiary.   Still, we hear that Governor Cuomo and his dingbat buddy, Mayor Bill Di Blasio are down on their decrepit knees praying to their god, Karl Marx, that ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden will bail them out once he occupies the White House.  Let them suffer.  Elsewhere, Texas state officials are considering a secession movement.
  75. 2021 Monday H: B-I-G changes occurring at the Fox News Channel what with a reordering or demotion of long-time hosts with Martha MacCallum becoming the first casualty, demoted to daytime TV.  They are doing this because Newsmax is cleaning their clocks.  We know that everyone we know who watched FNC has abandoned the network and gone to Newsmax and OAN.  It’s NOT your hosts, Fox, it’s YOU, ordering your highly paid hosts no longer to talk about Donald Trump or the 2020 Presidential Election honestly.  Combined with far too many liberals across your network, you made your bed now sleep in it.   Elsewhere, Colin Powell says he’s ‘no longer a Republican.’  Note to Colin: you haven’t been a Republican in 20 flipping years.  Meanwhile, DHS Secretary Chad Wolf announces he is resigning his position.  The rats continue jumping off the ship.  Finally, Louisiana Democrat Congressman Benny Thompson says, ‘Republicans should be on the NO-FLY LIST.’  Wow.  Talk about unification!

  79. 2021 Monday L: Noted legal scholar Alan Dershowitz tells Newsmax TV that ‘once President Donald J. Trump leaves office, it is impossible to impeach him on anything after the fact.’  He also points out that there is not enough time for the Democrats and their RINO stooges to impeach the 45th president.  No wonder the Democrats want to see Newsmax sent packing along with One America News.  Meanwhile, liberal bigwigs are calling for the compilation of lists so that all personnel who worked for President Trump can be branded with the scarlet letter so they can never work again or participate in civil society.  What has happened to our country?
  80. 2021 Monday M: The worst governor in the history of California- the Loser-nator Arnold Schwarzenegger- says that President Trump is the worst president in the history of the country.  Arnold, go to perdition!   Meanwhile, President Donald Trump awards Congressman Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, the Congressional Medal of Freedom.  Elsewhere, freshman Congresswoman Ashley Hinson, R-IA, demands House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi to stop delivery of China Daily newspaper to every congressional office.  WTF?  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, they now say they might ‘let some of the World Health Organization investigators seeking info on the Xi Jinping Bat Flu entry into their totalitarian country.

  82. 2021 Monday O: New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo now is crying about the economic devastation affecting the Empire State, looking into the camera, telling the dwindling number of viewers who continue paying attention to this ignoramus, that ‘we must reopen or there will be nothing to reopen ever again.’  What the hell does this flipping POS think?  Governor Cuomo and his twin moron, NYC Mayor Bill Di Blasio have ruined a great state and ruined a once-world-class city in their fight to defy President Trump.  They also have caused tens of thousands of COVID-19 vaccines to end up in the garbage.   Lock both of these slope-headed morons up.
  83. 2021 Monday P: End of the Night News- after having a good week last week, Bitcoin plummets by 20-percent, settling at $32,000 after being at $40,000 last week.   Speaking of losers, Twitter loses $5 billion in stock value after trashing Donald Trump and blaming him for the Antifa-caused riots on Capitol Hill last Wednesday.  Meanwhile, Abbott receives FDA clearance for a blood test that will help diagnose concussions faster than and less costly than brain scans.

Trump from November 13, 2019, until today.  His replacement- Acting DHS Secretary Pete Gaynor served from today until January 20, 2021, when the illegitimate Biden regime took control of the White House.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

There is one thing one can say about British folk-rock band, Fairport Convention, and that is, they continue soldiering along while others of their generation have boarded up the windows, sealed the doors, and slapped ‘gone fishing’ notices on the plywood.  The band’s next live album, “Journeyman’s Grace,” hit record store shelves on August 18, 2005.  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 20 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.

PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.

Monday, January 11, 2021, Today in History:  

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

ENDNOTES:

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

[ii] Sadly, Detective was a short-lived band but one that had the potential to be as legendary as Led Zeppelin, if only Disco was not trashing the airwaves.  You will find their three albums on: (1) Tuesday, 29-July-2014, (2) Thursday, 31-July-2014, and (3) Friday, 01-August-2014.  We hope you will seek them out.

[iii] We hope to offer the music of Dire Straits sometime in 2021-2022.  Please stay tuned.

[iv] Not sure when we will begin promoting the Amboy Dukes and Ted Nugent, but we hope to do so within the next decade.  Please stay tuned.

[v] We began promoting the music of Foghat, one of the all-time greatest rock bands to explode out of England, beginning on Monday, 18-February-2018 through Monday, 19-March-2018.  We hope you will seek the music of this celebrated group out by checking out the blog posts on those dates.

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

[vii] We 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.

[viii] We hope to promote the music of this famous British band, T-Rex, sometime within the next five years.

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

[x] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates.  We thank you.

[xi] Late in the day the famed football coach said he would not accept the honor; we believe out of cowardice as to what might happen if he did.  Can’t have President Donald Trump give him an award when everyone hates the guy, right?  What a pussy.

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

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

300. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 27, 2021

20. 1942 Tuesday: On the fifth day of the Battle of El Alamein, despite heavy losses, Australian troops continue pushing through the defensive rings of the Afrika Korps. On the Eastern Front in the fight at Stalingrad, German machine gunners manage to make it close to the Volga River by exploiting the growing gap between the Red October and Barricades tractor factories. They approach within 400 yards, bringing the last remaining Soviet ferry across the river under direct fire.

Trump for re-election as do all law enforcement unions.  Speaking of Trump, he promises the ‘best stimulus package’ following his re-election.   Finally, the home price index is up +5.7.

  55. 2020 Tuesday C: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,463.19, DOWN 222.19 points (-0.80%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,431.35, UP 72.41 points (+0.64%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,390.68, DOWN 10.29 points (-0.30%).  The price of GOLD is $1,909.70 per troy oz., -2.20 (-0.12%) while the price of SILVER is $24.44 per troy ounce, -0.135 (-0.55%).  The price of PLATINUM is $881.30 per troy oz, -5.50 (-0.62%) while the price of COPPER is $3.08 per pound, -0.018 (-0.58%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,353.90 per troy oz., -14.80 (-0.62%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $38.87 per barrel, -0.70 (-1.77%).  Today, COCOA is $2,492.00 per metric ton, +0.37 (+1.51).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.70 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.85 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency, a known fact which is why the world must disengage with them and bring our supply chain home- ASAP.
  56. 2020 Tuesday D: We learn today that following a police shooting of a violent black man armed with a large knife in Philadelphia last night, 30 officers were injured in the subsequent mob violence that erupted out of nowhere.  The cops arrived at a home where a domestic violence event was in progress and on police cameras, the suspect stormed out the house, knife held high, and rushed the cops.  They shot and killed him.  Moral of the story- don’t threaten the cops.   Speaking of Pennsylvania, President Trump bets the upcoming election on the states of Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Minnesota.  Meanwhile, CNN blocks ads on the middle-class tax hikes “Pro-China Joe” Biden plans to enact once he’s elected president.   Talk about Orwellian.  Elsewhere, President Trump lifts tariffs on Canadian low-cost aluminum but tells Ottawa that if they continue cheating the United States, he will slap them back on their exports.  
  57. 2020 Tuesday E: The Los Angeles Dodgers win their first World Series since 1988 by beating the Tampa Bay Rays 3-1 in Game 6, winning four games to two.  Congratulations, you guys have been trying for a long time so savor this victory.
  58. 2020 Tuesday F: Here are the results for the Mega Millions Draw #1602 with a jackpot of $109 million: 06, 13, 34, 46, 62, and Mega 01.  Highest winners were five people who had four numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $11,859 apiece.
  59. 2020 Tuesday G: Former business partner with Hunter Biden and the Biden Family, Tony Bobulinski, sat down with Tucker Carlson on Fox News tonight and laid out step-by-step the corruption rank among the Bidens.  He pointed out how they were selling out the interests of their country on behalf of their own financial interests and the Fake News media continues trying to erase this story, cover it up, and protect stumbling, bumbling, rumbling old senile “Pro-China Joe” Biden.  Democrats continue screeching it’s ‘Russian disinformation on behalf of the Trump campaign.’  Folks, a whole lotta payback is coming to these scurrilous scumbags on Election Day.  Join us and tens of millions of early voters voting STRAIGHT GOP. 
  60. 2021 Tuesday H: Finally, the 115th U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett took the oath of office on this date and stepped onto the nation’s high court.  A member of no declared party, President Donald J. Trump nominated her to fill the seat of U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
  61. 2021 Wednesday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 245,705,726 confirmed cases, +427,242, 4,986,427 confirmed deaths, +7,702 and 222,663,352 confirmed recoveries, +313,609.

  62. 2021 Wednesday A: JOE BIDEN TO DONALD J. TRUMP COVID-19 DEATHS- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 447,295 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 43,227 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths. (Note- COVID-19 stats gathered today at 3:00 P.M. PST).      
  63. 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: 4,782,983 confirmed cases, 71,964 confirmed deaths, and 2,543,886 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 3,690,150 confirmed cases, 58,933 confirmed deaths, and 3,203,790 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 83,706 confirmed cases, 889 confirmed deaths, and 82,817 of confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 722,947 confirmed cases, 8,621 confirmed deaths, and 308,320 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Alaska: they have 131,056 confirmed cases, 690 confirmed deaths, and 83,943 confirmed recoveries.[vii]   
  64. 2021 Wednesday C: FOREIGN COVID STATS OF THE DAY- Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 1,325,496 confirmed cases, 8,073 confirmed deaths, and 1,307,148 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Serbia, 35th country on the list: 1,118,905 cases of the virus, 9,698 confirmed death and 985,074 confirmed recoveries.[viii]     
  65. 2021 Wednesday D: STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,490.69, DOWN 216.19 points (-0.74%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 15,235.84 UP 0.12 points (+0.001%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,551.68, DOWN 23.11 points (-0.51%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $82.27 per barrel, -2.41 (-2.85%).  The price of GOLD is $1,798.30 per troy oz., +5.00 (+0.28%) while the price of SILVER is $24.13 per troy ounce, +0.04 (+0.17%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,012.10 per troy oz, -20.80 (-2.01%) while the price of COPPER is $4.39 per pound, -0.10 (-2.13%).[ix]  The price of PALLADIUM is $1,957.69 per troy oz., -53.15 (-2.64%).

  66. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE FOUR STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.564 per gallon, $3.315 in Florida, $4.292 in Hawaii, and $3.879 in Washington state.[xii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: U.S. Virgin Islands: $3.229.  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 24th LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Sudan: $2.605 per U.S. Gallon.[xiii]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,925,137,163,999 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xiv]  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 South Korea the next largest holder of U.S. debt is the Canucks with $120,000,000 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.
  67. 2021 Wednesday F: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE I- As much as it brings tears to our eyes to have to report this, today is Day No. 216 for the extremely impotent ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the calamity befalling the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 123 since she has shown up to do the job.
  68. 2021 Wednesday G: VACCINE MANUFACTURERS’ STOCK PRICES (FOLLOW THE MONEY) NEWS-(1) Pfizer $42.97 (2) AstraZeneca $61.77 (3) Merck & Company: $81.54 (4) Johnson & Johnson $163.74 (5) BioNTech $278.77 (6) Moderna $340.88.
  69. 2021 Wednesday H: MILITARY SUPPLIERS’ STOCK PRICES (FOLLOW THE MONEY 2) NEWS- (1) Raytheon: $89.16 (2) General Dynamics: $205.79 (3) Boeing: $206.61 (4) Lockheed Martin: $330.94 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $388.15.
  70. 2021 Wednesday I: PPE MANUFACTURERS’ STOCK PRICES (FOLLOW THE MONEY 3) NEWS- (1) Ansell Ltd.: $32.01 (2) DuPont: $69.15 (3) Honeywell: $215.72 (4) 3M: $178.24 (5) Teijen: $1,513.00.
  71. 2021 Wednesday J: ARTIFICIAL (FAKE) MEAT MANUFACTURERS’ STOCK PRICES (FOLLOW THE MONEY 4) NEWS- (1) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $61.30 (2) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $26.85 (3) Beyond Meat: $95.59.

  73. 2021 Wednesday L: JOE BIDEN NEWS I- Joe Biden is set to meet with Pope Francis on Friday.  IF the pontiff truly follows the dictates of his job, he should excommunicate NOT only slobbering Joe Biden but many of the Democrats holding elective office who profess to be ‘practicing Catholics.’  He should do this because of their support for unfettered access to abortion, even once the baby lies squalling on the delivery table.  IF the pontiff truly followed his vows, he would do this.  We believe he won’t because he fears the Catholic Church in the United States could lose its tax-exempt status.  What will you do, Pope Francis, what will YOU do?  Remember, Jesus is watching YOU.
  74. 2021 Wednesday M: JOE BIDEN REGIME NEWS I- U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland testified before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee today and what a hearing it was.  The man bobbed, weaved, played rope-a-dope, stuttered, stumbled, mumbled, and did everything he could to stymie the questions from the GOP.  Like Barack Hussein Obama before him, everything Republicans asked him, he knew nothing about it until he saw it on the nightly news.  He would not answer questions as to when he knew this, that, or the other.  One of the GOP senators told him he was glad he was not on the U.S. Supreme Court.  Boy, do we concur with that.  Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, asked “The Mole” Garland IF he has opened an investigation into the people who harassed Senator Kyrsten Sinema, D-AZ, you know, the ones who followed her into the ladies room berating her for not supporting the multi-trillion-dollar spending bills being pushed by Joe Biden.  No answer that we heard.
  75. 2021 Wednesday N: JOE BIDEN REGIME NEWS II- At the very same U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Senator “Crazy Mazie” Hirono, DS-HI, said that ‘we have all seen instances in which school board officials have been threatened with violence, intimidation, and social media abuse.’  Uh, okay, senator.  Do YOU have kids?  Anyhow, she wants to charge parents with hate crimes and other felonious laws designed either to force them to go silent or with which to prosecute and then imprison them.  George Orwell, anyone?  Still, committee Chairman Senator “Drippin’ Dick” Durbin, DS-IL, tried to keep things under control but the AG did his best to evade answering GOP questions that hammered him from all sides.  In the end, it would appear we learned nothing new.
  76. 2021 Wednesday O: POLITICAL NEWS I- Polls from Virginia continue saying that the gubernatorial race in the state between patriotic Republican businessman Glenn Youngkin and political hack, Terry “The Maggot” McAuliffe are neck-and-neck.  Still, many believe that ‘the Maggot’ has the election in hand since none of the flaws in last year’s general election have been addressed.  The Dems will do everything they can to steal this election for political operative and Clinton bagman.  We shall see.
  77. 2021 Wednesday P: POLITICAL NEWS II- Ohio and Missouri school board associations have terminated their connections with the National School Board Association over its recent designation of unhappy and/or angry parents at school board meetings as ‘domestic terrorists.’   Meanwhile, Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, says ‘allowing the IRS to spy on Americans’ bank accounts is screwed up.’
  78. 2021 Wednesday Q: ECONOMIC NEWS- Shoe manufacturer Puma raises its outlook despite ongoing problems with the supply chain.  Next, Heineken says it’s Q3 beer sales saw a much larger drop than anticipated.  Moving on, Tomahawk cruise missile manufacturer Raytheon is going to lose ‘thousands of jobs’ over Joe Biden’s edict that ALL federal employees and/or federal contractors undergo vaccination for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.   (Note- this seems to us like Joe Biden is weakening the United States so the Chi-Coms can come in for the kill.  This is insane).  McDonalds- the world’s largest restaurant chain- says that its outlook has gone way up due to higher menu prices, larger portion sizes, and partnering up with rappers and South Korean boy bands.   Moving on, Uber drivers will soon be able to rent Teslas through Hertz, the global car rental agency.
  79. 2021 Wednesday R: POPULAR CULTURE NEWS- Fans of the Rolling Stones are demanding the now wimpy band to restore the classic tune, “Brown Sugar,” to the setlist.  NO one can fathom that a band that was ‘so in the face of the establishment’ now is bowing down to the Cancel Culture.  Stones, it’s time to rediscover your balls and continue on as you were, still are, and always will be.  Otherwise- it’s what Paul McCartney said- you’re just a blues cover band and to us a bunch of pussies.
  80. 2021 Wednesday S: SPORTS NEWS I- The NHL has fined the Chicago Blackhawks $2 million for not following through on sexual assault allegations against one of their assistant coaches back in 2010.  It has taken them 11 years to fine them for not doing an investigation.  Wow.  Next, here are the results for Game 2 of the World Series between the visiting Atlanta Braves (96-75) and the home team Houston Astros (100-71).  The Astros rebounded with a 7-2 victory at home.
  81. 2021 Wednesday T: CALIFORNIA LOTTERY RESULTS-SUPER LOTTO AND POWERBALL DRAWS– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3607 what with a $29 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 02, 25, 26, 27, 32, and Mega 04.  Out of 99,910 winning tickets, the highest winners were ELEVEN people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $1,622 apiece.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #903 with a jackpot of $102 million up for grabs: 03, 06, 26, 35, 51, and Power 17.  Out of 45,508 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was one person who had FIVE numbers but NO Powerball for a prize of $2,226,031.  The winning ticket was sold at Circle K in Perris, CA 92570.
  82. 2021 Wednesday U: Friends, last year, this is what we feared: the closer we come to the election, the more the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party hacks try to steal the elections by sowing as much confusion as possible into the system.  We hate to say this, after the elections, there is going to be hell to pay- for them.

Wednesday, October 27, 2021:

ENDNOTES:

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

[ii] We hope to promote the music of this famous British band, T-Rex, sometime within the next five years.

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

[iv] We began promoting the music of the Velvet Underground starting on Tuesday, 18-March-2014 through Wednesday, 09-April-2014.  At the time we promoted this famous New York City rock band, we failed to share the music of the man himself, Lou Reed.  We hope to rectify that mistake when we return to promoting American bands again.  Thank you for your patience.
