  59. 2016 Wednesday: Young adult novelist Lois Duncan, author of “I Know What You Did Last Summer” dies at age 82.  Meanwhile, as Russian aggression intensifies in Ukraine, ministers from the European Union announce an increase in aid for the beleaguered Ukrainians.  Of course, whether the Europeans will deliver them offensive weapons or just meals-ready-to-eat remains to be seen. Elsewhere, crackpot Senator Chris Murphy, DS-CT, launches a filibuster on the floor of the U.S. Senate in an effort to ramrod comprehensive gun control through in the wake of the massacre at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida.  (Note- Senator Murphy, since the shooter was a radical jihadist who committed his life to ISIS, wouldn’t it make more sense to filibuster so NO more flipping Muslims enter the frigging country?  Dumbass liberals).
  60. 2017 Thursday: In the still free bastion of democracy of Hong Kong, a new record price is set for a parking lot: $664,000.  That’s capitalism for you!  Elsewhere, in the Congressional Baseball Game at Washington Nationals baseball park, the Democrats deliver the Republicans a pounding in the charity game, winning by a final score of 11-2.  However, since Rep. Steve Scalise, R-LA, was shot by a Bernie Sanders’ whacked out supporter, the victorious Democrats in a show of sympathy lend the trophy to the GOP until the Louisiana Republican makes a full recovery.
  61. 2018 Friday: Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort underwent jailing to await two criminal trials; a federal judge revoked his house arrest over phony allegations of witness tampering in special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s phony investigation into purported “Trump-Russia collusion,” something the special counsel failed to find or to prove beyond a reasonable doubt.  Sadly, Manafort received seven years in prison on federal charges.  The poor man is a political prisoner, punished by the Democrats because he helped Donald Trump win the presidency.
  62. 2019 Saturday: The sports memorabilia world lights its hair on fire as a baseball jersey belonging to the world’s greatest Babe Ruth brings in a record $5.64 million at auction in New York City.  Stunning!  Elsewhere, Chi-Com stooge Carrie Lam- chief executive of Hong Kong- announces the suspension of the new extradition law that would send FREE Hong Kongens to mainland China for trial.  The protests have ground Beijing’s rule of the former British crown colony into the dust.  (Note- several months later, the Xi Jinping Bat Flu would arrive that would help Xi Jinping kill two birds with one stone- Hong Kong freedom fighters and U.S. President Donald J. Trump.  F**king diabolical).
  63. 2020 Monday: Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone warlord RAZ changed the name of the new utopic socialized crap hole from CHAZ to CHOP: Capitol Hill Organized Protest.  There, people tremble in fear that they might be beaten and/or evicted at any time while Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkin, CPUSA-WA, pays it little mind and Gov. Jay Inslee- a loser if one ever existed- acts as though he knows nothing about it, a la Sergeant Schultz.   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump and Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr make it known that the pending ‘tell-all’ book by John “Perpetual War” Bolton in which, he attacks his former boss, the current president, has not gone through the normal processes and could be in violation of long-standing federal policy.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Supreme Court upholds civil rights for homosexuals.  It is what it is.  Finally, President Trump informed the world that he is moving ahead with his planned Oklahoma City rally this upcoming Saturday, June 20, 2020.  The left is wailing, gnashing its teeth but the commander-in-chief is correct when he says, ‘all the fears of the Chinese bat flu went out the window when people were out in the streets rioting over the death of George Floyd but oh, no, Trump can’t hold any rallies because we must not take the chance of getting the Wuhan Virus.  Oh, please.  Here is the deal: 800,000 people have sought tickets to the 20,000-seat arena.  Period.  Joe Biden cannot match that.  
  64. 2020 Monday A: Speaking of the Chinese Bat Virus, the one comrade Xi dispatched to the rest of the world, here are today’s stats, world first: 7,965,453 confirmed cases, 434,432 confirmed deaths, and 3,809,566 confirmed recoveries.   Next, here are the stats for the United States: 2,148,380 confirmed cases, 117,700 confirmed deaths, and 662,226 confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are today’s stats, Golden State first: 151,452 confirmed cases, 5,089 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the Aloha State, here are the numbers: 728 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 629 confirmed recoveries.  Finally in the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 26,067 confirmed cases, 1,220 confirmed deaths, and like California, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 297,795 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 161,854 deaths

[ix]   
  68. 2021 Tuesday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,690 confirmed cases, 6,430 confirmed deaths, and 833,029 confirmed recoveries (SAME NUMBERS).   Let’s look at one other country-  Angola, 117th country on the list: 36,921 cases of the virus, 842 confirmed deaths and 30,775 confirmed recoveries.[x]     
  69. 2021 Tuesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,299.33, DOWN 94.42 points (-0.27%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,072.86, DOWN 101.29 points (-0.71%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,246.59, DOWN -8.56 points (-0.20%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $72.65 per barrel, +0.52 (+0.73%).  The price of GOLD is $1,856.90 per troy oz., +0.70 (+0.04%) while the price of SILVER is $27.77 per troy ounce, +0.06 (+0.22%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,153.90 per troy oz, +5.30 (+0.46%) while the price of COPPER is $4.35 per pound, +0.02 (+0.50%).[xi]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,767.93 per troy oz, +5.30 (+0.19%).[xii] The price of RHODIUM is $22,800.00 per troy oz., +500.00 (+2.24%).

  70. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.226 per gallon, $2.966 in Florida, $3.972 in Hawaii, and $3.621 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- Michigan: $3.162.  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- Zambia: $3.673 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,410,267,967,104 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 which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Cayman Islands, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is India with $216 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position).[xviii]
  71. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Folks, by our count, today is Day No. 84 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka Willie Brown’s ‘sofa,’ to be in charge of the border and to continue being a no-show.  How is it this woman still maintains this ‘job’ much less continues to serve as the faux vice president of the United States.  Hurry up with the election audits so we can boot this woman who schlepped her way to the top along with her boss out of office.  Enough is enough.  Speaking of “Kooky Kamala,” Democrats and Republicans alike are blasting her for taking selfies at a South Carolina vaccination center when she should be down at the border halting the tidal wave of illegal aliens from the Third World.
  72. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Meanwhile, One America News releases the latest updates as to ILLEGAL ALIENS DATA.  First, the cost of caring for all these Untermensch as of today is $533,130,528.  Second, the cost so far this year of handling the illegal alien tsunami for 2021 is $181,355,085,824.  Third, the number of illegal aliens who have crossed the border this year is 1,858,744 while fourth, the total number of illegal aliens estimated to be in the U.S. is 35,858,744.  Since the inception of our original blog site back in 2009, we have speculated that the number of illegals back then was anywhere between 35-to-50 million.  Now, we believe the number is closer to 75-to-100 million.  Let’s begin rounding them up, inserting microchips next to their hearts, and then booting them out of the country as quickly as possible.  We need Donald Trump to come back NOW.
  73. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– In advance of the ‘Joe Biden’-Vladimir Putin summit tomorrow, Joe Biden says that he is going to ‘warn’ Putin in a conversation that could last up to five hours (which is bull crap- no way Joe can do it.  However, we expect that once in the room with their interpreters, Putin actually will be discussing issues with Joe Biden’s earpiece which most likely contains the voice of former regime leader Barack Hussein Obama).   Ahead of their summit, Putin says that Joe has much for which to answer when it comes as to WHY more than 450 people are languishing in D.C. lockups for their part in January 06, 2021, and WHY Ashli Babbitt was shot dead by a police officer.  In essence, what Putin is saying, is ‘look in the mirror at yourselves before you begin pointing the finger at us.’  (Note- we expect some issue will arise that will cancel the Obama-Putin Summit so Joe does not embarrass himself and our country.
  74. 2021 Tuesday I: Foreign News / Overseas News II–  News arose today that suggests that Vladimir Putin will soon be annexing Belarus to the new Russian empire just as they continue applying pressure upon the Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania and continue their war of aggression against Ukraine.  Meanwhile, patriotic Israelis stage a massive march through East Jerusalem as the new liberal government sends out legions of police to keep the ‘radicals’ in line.  These people are NOT radicals and Jerusalem- ALL OF IT- belongs to the Israeli people because God gave them the land more than 3,00 years ago in a covenant between Yahweh and His Chosen People.  March every day!  Regarding Israel, the Israeli Air Force had to strike some targets in Gaza after the criminal Palestinians launched a barrage of incendiary balloons across the border into Israel.  The Israeli fire authorities report the bottom-feeding rabble in Gaza ignited at least 20 fires.  Light ‘em up, Israel, light ‘em up.
  75. 2021 Tuesday J: Foreign News / Overseas News III-Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms sent 28 warplanes- including nuclear-capable bombers and fighters- into Taiwanese airspace in the largest show of force to date.  We hope Taiwan continues beefing up its defenses because in the coming war between the forces of the modern-day Chi-Com Nazis and the freedom-loving people of Free China- Taiwan- there is but one place to stand: on the side of free people.  We should have nuked the Chi-Coms back in 1950.  (Note- communist China expert Gordon Chang says Beijing’s military exercises are no ‘coincidence’).  Finally, Israeli ex-Prime Minister Ehud Olmert says that ‘ignorant’ Ilhan Omar is ‘not worthy’ to be in Congress.
  76. 2021 Tuesday K: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– New evidence continues to arise that shows what most Americans already know: COVID-19 was already in the U.S. by Christmas 2019.  (Note- the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party stooges took care of one another’s problems: COVID-19 allowed the Chi-Coms to end the pro-democracy movement in Hong Kong while the disease allowed the Democrats to get rid of President Donald J. Trump and to vilify his supporters by setting the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021, into action.   In so doing, it permitted both to get rid of their enemies and to allow each one to cover for the other.  The capstone is that Vladimir Putin can now lambaste drooling Joe Biden for keeping the people locked up while hiding the identity of the cop who shot Ashli Babbitt.
  77. 2021 Tuesday L: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II-In other Chi-Vi-related news, former CDC Director Robert Redfield says that the ‘arrogance’ of the Chi-Com scientists may have led to the disaster of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu pandemic destabilizing the world.  Finally, thanks to Red State’s brave reporting, we continue learning the truth that the Xi Jinping Bat Flu pandemic was indeed cooked up like methamphetamine in the Wuhan Institute of Virology for use as a biowarfare weapons.  If their stats are correct, the reason the Chi-Coms’ numbers are so low is that they were prepared for it in advance.
  78. 2021 Tuesday M: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– President Donald J. Trump continues ramping up pressure on the Keystone State to conduct an Arizona-style 2020 Election audit.
  79. 2021 Tuesday N: Political News I– GOP lawmakers seek to defund schools using the bogus and racist 1619 Project in its educational regimen.  Good.  In other news, Robert Bork Jr. says that ‘his father would be appalled that ‘Cho-Mo Joe’ Biden is president.  Of course when Biden was on the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee, he eviscerated Bork’s father who was up for a SCOTUS nomination.   Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo launches a new PAC with which to help worthy candidates in the fight to reclaim the U.S. House and Senate in 2022.  Moving on, it’s official: the GOP have introduced a bill to fire Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci for his mishandling of the COVID-19 crisis as well as his potential enrichment from his mistakes.
  80. 2021 Tuesday O: Business News– Wall Street ends DOWN over investor fears in anticipation of the coming report from the Federal Reserve.  In other business news, Southwest Airlines has had to cancel more than 1,000 flights due to technical issues but we think they were ‘hacked.’  Everyone else is so why not them?
  81. 2021 Tuesday P: Joe Biden Regime News I– U.S. Department of Homeland Security Director Alejandro Mayorkas returns from a trip to Mexico.  We suspect he went there to clean up the mess made by ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris who takes nothing seriously but laughs at everything like the yammering jackal she is.  In other news, ‘Joe Biden’s’ proposed budget is $6 trillion, which will drive the U.S. deficit to the moon.  The senile old fool’s handlers are going to drive taxes up on the American people.  This is insanity, it’s akin to King John crushing the people and Robin Hood fighting back on behalf of the people.  In other regime news, Joe Biden wants to spend $100 million ANNUALLY to combat domestic terrorism.
  82. 2021 Tuesday Q: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– While conducting a turtle-nesting study in Florida, researchers come across $1.2 million worth of cocaine.   Next, the U.S. Department of Justice seeks to reinstate the death penalty against Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.  Elsewhere, a judge rules that Harvey Weinstein can be sent to California to face a rape charge in the Golden State.
  83. 2021 Tuesday R: National Security News– Tucker Carlson reported tonight on his Fox News Channel show that government documents reveal that there were numerous FBI agents involved in the events of January 06, 2021, ‘unindicted co-conspirators’ who helped organize the protests that day and then participated in leading them into the Capitol Building.  We have said countless times that what happened on January 06, 2021, was the largest FALSE FLAG OPERATION carried out in the history of our country so as to bring down President Donald J. Trump, vilify his supporters, and then to place a Chi-Com-backed stooge into the White House.  This only reinforces what we believe and what we have been saying for months now.
  84. 2021 Tuesday S: Big Tech News– “Little Mark” Zuckerberg made one of the biggest (and stupidest) mistakes of his life when he tried to buy rights to Pink Floyd’s “Another Brick in the Wall, Pt. 2” for an undisclosed massive amount of money.  Roger Waters, creative fire behind the British band and writer of most of its songs said, ‘there is no F***ing way I am going to allow a F***ing POS like Zuckerberg to use MY song so he can brainwash young people.’  A supporter of Julian Assange, Waters the song was as important back then as it is now especially since Facebook is rapidly becoming a Big Brother-like entity spying on people around the globe, sucking up their data, and then doing its damnedest to control their minds.  God bless you, Roger; it’s good to know patriots and freedom fighters still exist.  As for Zuck, well, he can go F*** himself in the ass.
  85. 2021 Tuesday T: Religion News– U.S. Roman Catholic bishops are meeting to discuss the denying of communion to Pro-Death politicians.  The Holy Father Pope Francis ordered them NOT to deny communion to the abortion-loving, Marxist Democrats because in our view, Francis is a Marxist, too, and unfit to lead the church.  We hope the bishops excommunicate ALL Pro-Death politicians from the church.  Let them languish in Limbo.
  86. 2021 Tuesday U: Health and Medical Alerts– A new study reports that for about one-quarter of all survivors of the Chi-Vi, they develop other, much more chronic issues down the road.  The Chi-Coms claim their pandemic did not originate in their biowarfare program but folks, every scrap of news we hear connected to the ‘VID tells us one thing and one thing only: the Chi-Coms cooked this crap up and then infected the rest of the world.   E-V-I-L.
  87. 2021 Tuesday V: U.S. House of Representatives News– Nonagenarian House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, she with the lopsided breasts, says that the House will proceed with its ‘investigation’ into the (FALSE FLAG OPERATION) of January 06, 2021.  As we all recall, the crowd of peaceful Trump supporters was infiltrated by Antifa thugs and Black Lives Matter human fecal matter.  The rest as they say is ‘history.’  In other House news, loser Rep. Adam “Bug-Eyes” Schiff, DS-CA 28th congressional district says that has unlimited power to spy on the American people and to seize any records he so desires even as he raises a stink about the Bill Barr DOJ’s subpoenas for phone records belonging to Democrat lawmakers.  Moving on, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, is pushing ‘Mumbles” Pelosi to strip Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, CPUSA-MI 5th congressional district, of her seat on the House Intel Committee because of her hatred of Israel and her love of all things ‘jihad.’
  88. 2021 Tuesday W: U.S. Senate News I– The U.S. Senate confirmed Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to take the seat of now-Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals.  A likely future nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court- should “Cho-Mo Joe” Biden stick around long enough to get to nominate a pick- Jackson was confirmed by a vote of 53-44.  In other U.S. Senate news, Senator John Barrasso, R-WY, says that ‘Joe Biden’s nominee to head the Bureau of Land Management- Tracy Stone-Manning- should be booted over her support or involvement in past acts of eco-terrorism.  The Democrats NEVER possess a scrap of shame for their crazed, left-wing, Marxist actions.  Shame.  Elsewhere, Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, says ‘U.S. servicemembers are complaining about the overly WOKE Pentagon’s policies.’  Amen.  As they should… He is also concerned that the Chi-Coms will be harvesting the DNA of Olympians at the Summer Olympics in Tokyo.  Finally, the Senate Judiciary Committee is debating the House Bill H.R. 6 that will grant amnesty and citizenship to 3 million frigging illegal aliens without determining whether there are thugs and rapists among them.  (Note- the Democrats truly hate the people they lead).
  89. 2021 Tuesday X: U.S. Senate News II– Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, R-KY, says that there must be grave consequences for the purposeful leaking of a person’s tax records.  Speaking of “Cocaine Mitch,” he says there is NO WAY that “Gropin’ Joe” Biden will get someone onto the U.S. Supreme Court in 2024.  Another denizen of the U.S. Senate, Senator “Cho-Mo Bob” Menendez, DS-NJ, says that ‘Joe Biden must treat Vladimir Putin like the ‘killer’ he is.  Good for you, Bob, good for you.  Next, Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says that ‘the Biden regime’s blanket amnesty covers dangerous criminals, too.’
  90. 2021 Tuesday Y: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump names Liz Harrington as his new spokesperson as Jason Miller is taking over as the CEO of a new tech start-up company.  The company owns one of the social media platforms the 45th president is considering appropriating with which to get his message out to the American people and his supporters around the world.
  91. 2021 Tuesday Z: Economic News– A new Trafalgar poll says that MORE Americans blame ‘Cho-Mo Joe’ Biden than they do President Donald J. Trump for the rising inflation now afflicting the country.
  92. 2021 Tuesday AA: Environmental News I– Former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows calls the G7 Summit’s agreement on ‘climate change actions’ a terrible deal.
  93. 2021 Tuesday BB: Texas State News– Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, sends a powerful message to the laughing hyena ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris when he tells her the ‘border crisis is no laughing matter.’  The Lone Star State’s governor is going to seek contributions so that his state can continue building the wall to halt the ongoing flow of millions of ravenous illegal aliens roaring over the Southwest frontier like a cloud of locusts.  The state is also encouraging all states who can spare law enforcement officers to send them to Texas to help guard the frontier.  Governor Abbott- where can we send the checks?  (Note- all the cops run out of cities that won’t support them will be heading to Texas and Arizona, we suspect).  However, a government watchdog says, ‘Joe Biden’s halt of wall construction does not violate U.S. law.’ Speaking of Governor Abbott, President Donald J. Trump has accepted his invitation to tour the southern border with him and other officials on the last Wednesday at the end of the month.
  94. 2021 Tuesday CC: Observation of the Day– IF the United States was filled with as many WHITE SUPREMACISTS as Democrats claim, don’t you think it strange that during the eight years of the ‘first black president,’ no one- especially NO WHITE PERSON- ever tried to assassinate him?  The Secret Service isn’t that good.  However, had someone tried- or worse- had the Democrats conducted a FALSE FLAG OPERATION whereby they picked some random loser and had him or her make an attempt on the life of the 44th president, can you imagine the political bludgeoning they could have carried out on ‘white males?’  We will say this: it should be clear that true political violence is no longer a problem in this country whereas mob violence at street level is.  But in a nation that saw Presidents Abraham Lincoln, James A. Garfield, William McKinley, and John F. Kennedy shot dead as well as two attempts on the life on President Gerald R. Ford and the attempted assassination of President Ronald Reagan, no attempt on the life of an American president has occurred in 41 years.  In the last century, we saw the assassinations of Senator Robert F. Kennedy as well as that of famed civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. but no attempts on three highly popular/unpopular presidents depending upon whom you ask- George W. Bush, Barack Hussein Obama, and Donald J. Trump- since the turn of the century tells us one thing.  Much of the violence we see is ginned up by the left and what’s clear is, we believe that the left was trying to gin up someone among their ranks to do the unthinkable to President Trump yet were unable to find a fall guy or worse- coerce a patsy- into carrying out their loony-tunes agenda of vilification followed by violence.  No, we say, ‘WHITE SUPREMACISM’ no longer is around but there sure is a whole lotta ‘BLACK SUPREMACISM’ afflicting our country like cancer gobbling away at one’s privates.  Let’s do something to end this stupidity.   Democrats, can we set RACE ATTACKS aside?  This is going to destroy our country and even worse, you pathetic bottom-feeding scumbags know it and yet you persist.  Let me know what you think.  Thank you- Chef Vicky.
  95. 2021 Tuesday DD: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1668 with a $30 million pot on the line.  18, 22, 27, 38, 52, and Mega 11.  Out of 50,948 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were 35 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $383 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

It is a shame to watch a band undergoing problems, but such was the agonizing lot of the Beach Boys: Familial friction, inner family turmoil, and the picking and choosing of sides of one, two, or three against the others- along with managers, outside family members, even hangers-on- was causing the much-beloved band to disintegrate before the eyes of their fans.  Thus, we find Carl Wilson the second Wilson Brother to launch a solo career: “Carl Wilson,” an album that came out on March 27, 1981.  Carl was always a strong songwriter once he got going and was always a glorious collaborator with others.  This album is a good one, one that highlights the artist’s multiple musical abilities and vocal talents.  The album features Carl (vocals, guitars, keyboards), J.W. Guercio (bass, guitars, vocals), Gerald Johnson (bass), James Stroud (drums, percussion), as well as several others.  We hope you will investigate this one to your liking and that perhaps you will add it to your growing collection of nothing but the best in music- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

  65. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– As ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris continues taking flak over her lies and claims about visiting the border, President Donald J. Trump says he may be visiting the southern border very soon.  Criticism continues slamming into the ‘border czar’ like that coming from Sandy “The Fly” Cortez who slammed the inept politician over her telling Central American illegal aliens ‘not to come, not to come, because I don’t think you will be able to get in.’  Add to that a new report suggests that the Harris team was ‘perplexed by her answers to questions’ while on their trip to Guatemala and Mexico.  While in Mexico, the ‘border czar’ failed to discuss Mexico’s refusal to take their illegal aliens back.  WTF? Elsewhere, Australian TV pundit Paul Murray said that ‘Donald J. Trump was right on immigration.’
  66. 2021 Wednesday G: Foreign News / Overseas News I– A Dutch court read evidence in court that proves that Flight MH17 was indeed shot down over eastern Ukraine by a Russian anti-aircraft missile from the ‘BUK’ missile system.  The missile belonged to the Russian 53rd Anti-Missile Brigade.  Elsewhere, Egypt is seeking to help ease tensions in the Middle East.  Next, Kim Jong Un’s weight loss raises questions about his health.  Perhaps he has given up foreign cheeses and alcohols?  Elsewhere, it appears the socialist candidate in Peru’s presidential election- Pedro Castillo- is leading rival Keiko Fujimori.  Elsewhere, we learn that indirect talks between the United States and Iran are set to resume this weekend.  Finally, Canada says they are willing to take in some Central Americans to help the United States handle the tidal wave of illegal aliens.

  68. 2021 Wednesday I: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information I– Israel says there is growing evidence that the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine can lead to deadly heart inflammation- myocarditis- in younger males.  As for vaccine passports, Texas became the latest state among more than half a dozen states to prohibit vaccine passports.  The governor signed this bill on Monday.  DHS announced that it’s going to maintain a vaccine database.  Oregon may be joining the states prohibiting passports for citizens seeking to go about their daily lives.  Elsewhere, a new study suggests that hydroxychloroquine aka Plaquenil can boost Xi Jinping Bat Flu survival rates by 200-percent.

  70. 2021 Wednesday K: Health and Medical Alerts– Michigan health officials report new case of human hantavirus which could signal a new outbreak is on its way.  The virus is spread by rats and the disease is similar to COVID-19 in its affects but is much more deadly although not quite as contagious.
  71. 2021 Wednesday L: Joe Biden Regime News I– Joe Biden left on Air Force One today for his first overseas trip.  Europe is the destination for the upcoming G7 summit and then his summit in Switzerland with Vladimir Putin. In Britain, Faux First Lady Jill Biden addressed the forced crowd of U.S. servicemen-and-women (-and its)- longer than her husband, Joe, did.  Reminiscent of how President Woodrow Wilson’s wife, Edith Bolling Galt, was calling the shots for much of his second term.  Joe, however, did promise to ‘tell Vladimir Putin the things he needs to be told’ (like maybe, where’s my cut for allowing you to complete the Nord Stream 2 pipeline?)  Joe is also set to unveil a new global vaccination program paid for by the U.S. taxpayer just like every other BIG GOVERNMENT plan so beloved by the Democrats.  Moving on, it appears that Joe Biden will require more than $52 billion for effort to produce our own CHIPS.
  72. 2021 Tuesday M: Energy News– Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, signs a pair of bills today with which to strengthen the Lone Star State’s electrical grid so as to prevent another shutdown across the state like the one that left more than 5 million Texans in the cold and dark following its collapse earlier in the year.  The legislation will fix all the flaws within the system that befell ERCOT during the freak winter storm, a storm that killed 141 people.  It also drove up variable rate power bills to oppressive highs customers could not pay.  Elsewhere, a Dutch court ruling may force Shell to scale back on its oil and gas industries.
  73. 2021 Tuesday N: U.S. House of Representatives News– The House ‘problem-solvers caucus’ is looking to pick up the pieces on the failed bi-partisan infrastructure bill that collapsed in the upper chamber.   Meanwhile, Rep.  Jay Obernolte, R-CA 8th congressional district, introduces a bill with which to create cyber jobs within the federal government.

  75. 2021 Tuesday P: Big Tech News– A new Apple security feature available to customers WON’T be available to customers in communist China.  Elsewhere, bidding for a seat on Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin suborbital flight into space has hit $3,8 million.  Meanwhile, a major internet outage led to the shutdown of high-traffic websites and apps.   Elsewhere, growing concerns over Amazon.com Inc. new tech- Sidewalk Mesh Network- raises privacy concerns.  According to sources, the network will link tens of millions of Amazon smart devices with each of them sharing a teeny tiny bit of their bandwidth so as to increase the size of the network.  In so doing, this will permit hackers backdoor entry into the network where they can set up shop and monitor anyone or anything they choose without anyone knowing they are there.  F**k Amazon.com.  Hopefully, Jeff Bezos’ trip into near outer space will be a one-way trip.
  76. 2021 Tuesday Q: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– It’s official: after 19 years hosting the hit TV show, “The Bachelor,” Chris Harrison will no longer be doing it because the WOKE are mad at him for having come to the defense of one of the female contestants after images surfaced of her attending an antebellum ball a few years back.  Harrison is seeking a multi-million-dollar payout promised by the show’s producers.

Currently, a bushel of corn is $607.75.  Next, the company behind the Keystone XL pipeline- TC Energy- terminates the $9 billion project several months after drooling Joe terminated the permit for the project.  Finally, ‘memo to meme raiders’- squeezable stock shorts are taking cover.
  78. 2021 Wednesday S: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News–  a new Gallup Poll suggests that Americans are equally divided on the morality of abortion with Republicans among the lowest and Democrats among the highest in favor of abortion at all stages.  Hence, why we call it the Pro-Death Movement.  What’s next?  Old folks, the disabled, and the mentally ill?  Nazism on the way!
  79. 2021 Wednesday T: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– A judge in the Peach State has ordered an audit of Fulton County ballots as evidence continues to show that many ballots may have been photocopied and therefore are invalid.   Meanwhile, Attorney General Ken Paxton, R-TX, says that the election audits are ‘revealing the truth.’

  82. 2021 Wednesday W: National Security News– A new cyberattack and data breach targeting the Internal Revenue Service puts ALL Americans at risk.   Meanwhile, the Pentagon has announced that it’s going to make the Chi-Com military buildup its top priority.  Elsewhere, Joe Biden now is going to reverse President Donald J. Trump’s ban on the so-called social media sharing apps TikTok and WeChat- which in truth is an intelligence-gathering app for the Chinese Communist Party and People’s Liberation Army.  The Chi-Coms are doing what the Nazis did in the 1930s, they are reconnoitering countries around the world with their Belt and Roads Initiative and its so-called ‘social media’ platforms.  Ware is indeed coming and we must strike them FIRST.  Thermonuclear war is the ONLY answer.
  83. 2021 Wednesday X: Political News I– An author points the finger at Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio for being the sole architect of the Big Apple’s decline.  Next, President Donald J.

Trump could do a ‘photo op last summer.’  Moving on, in a story that first hit the news cycle yesterday, growing outrage over Hunter Biden’s use of repeated RACIAL SLURS targeting black Americans (his dad’s a racist, too) while conversing in text messages with people with whom he interacted like his lawyer.

Savages.

  74. 2020 Thursday: Thanks to communist China, another 2.5-million Americans file for unemployment benefits last week, bringing the total of unemployed Americans to 38 million or 14.7-percent of the workforce, a number not seen since the depths of the Great Depression.  Even worse, it all happened over the course of a single month.  Meanwhile, polls show President Trump’s approval ratings at 44-percent (take them with a grain of salt- or two!) and disapproval at 54-percent.  We shall see. 
  75. 2020 Thursday A: Here are the global statistics for the Chinese Virus- aka COVID-19, aka the Kung Flu, aka the Wuhan Virus Crisis- for today: 5,014,943 confirmed number of cases, 328,462 confirmed number of deaths, but 1,909,701 number of confirmed recoveries.   Here are the figures for the United States: 1,604,862 confirmed number of cases, 94,965 confirmed number of deaths, but 306,171 number of confirmed recoveries which is great.  In the three states in which, the AICPENDBLOG.COM has chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, California first: 84,057 confirmed number of cases, 3,436 confirmed number of deaths, but typical of ultra-left-wing states, ZERO mention of the number of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for Hawaii: 643 confirmed number of cases, 17 confirmed number of deaths, but 578 number of confirmed recoveries which is extraordinary.  Finally, in the once-proud but now socialist-liberal hellhole, Washington, here are the stats: 18,971 confirmed number of cases, 1,037 confirmed number of deaths, but like California, no reported number of confirmed recoveries which tells you all you need to know about the regime running Olympia.
  76. 2020 Thursday B: As far as COVID-19 numbers go, communist China has changed their numbers somewhat.  Here are their current figures: 82,967 confirmed number of cases, 4,634 confirmed number of deaths, but 78,249 number of confirmed recoveries.   Sources in still-free Hong Kong report the number of cases to be well over one million, that the death toll approaches 750,000, with the number of recoveries being unclear.  Free Hong Kong!  Free Tibet!  Free Macau!  Free Taiwan via making them a separate nation once again with their own seat in the United Nations.  Enough is enough with indulging the Chinese Communist Party, let’s return to the Two-China Policy!  It is interesting to note that Beijing is now trying to crack down on Hong Kong’s independence while the rest of the world is fighting Wuhan’s biowarfare.  We shall see.
  77. 2021 Friday: COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 166,437,117 confirmed cases, +593,180, 3,456,597 confirmed deaths, +11,880 and 147,247,215 confirmed recoveries, +81,890.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,851,561 confirmed cases, UP 26,177 from yesterday’s reporting, 603,380 confirmed deaths, UP 628, [xiii] and 27,397,359 confirmed recoveries, UP 45,382.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[xiv]   
  78. 2021 Friday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 286,756 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 172,853 deaths  
  79. 2021 Friday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,775,535 confirmed cases, 62,855 confirmed deaths, and 2,017,518 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,304,860 confirmed cases, 36,446 confirmed deaths, and 1,911,782 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 35,726 confirmed cases, 494 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 428,323 confirmed cases, 5,749 confirmed deaths, and 209,794 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Illinois: they have 2,373,453 confirmed cases, 24,935 confirmed deaths, and 2,275,243 confirmed recoveries.[xv]    
  80. 2021 Friday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,290 confirmed cases, 6,397 confirmed deaths, and 832,331 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Algeria, a former part of the French Empire: 126,434 cases of the virus, 3,405 confirmed deaths and 88,066 confirmed recoveries.[xvi]   In other news related to the Chi-Coms (after all, they did give the world the Xi Jinping Bat Flu on purpose), the FDA is warning everyone against using syringes manufactured in that country because they have a habit of breaking off in the arms of patients.  Yet another attack on the United States by the communist goons.   
  81. 2021 Friday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,207.84, UP 123.69 points (+0.36%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,470.99, DOWN 64.75 points (-0.48%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,155.86, DOWN 3.26 points (-0.078%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $63.88 per barrel, +0.30 (+0.47%).  The price of GOLD is $1,881.80 per troy oz., +5.10 (+0.07%) while the price of SILVER is $27.66 per troy ounce, +0.17 (+0.63%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,170.90 per troy oz, +1.50 (+0.13%) while the price of COPPER is $4.51 per pound, +0.03 (+0.64%).[xvii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,783.06 per troy oz, -68.97 (-2.42%).[xviii] The price of RHODIUM is $28,000.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%).[xix]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000027.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.43 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.93.     In Afghan Afghani, one greenback equals 77.56 and in Albanian Lek, a buck equals 100.70 and in Algerian Dinar, one dollar equals 132.81 of theirs.[xx]     
  82. 2021 Friday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.158 per gallon, $2.881 in Florida, $3.885 in Hawaii, and $3.558 in Washington state.[xxi]    Let’s look at one other location- Wyoming: $3.036.  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- Russia: $2.510 per U.S. Gallon.[xxii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,313,748,920,305 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxiii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  83. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe–  Today is Day 60 of ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris’ reign.  Where is she?  NO one has any “Kooky Kamala” sightings or information on this illusive member of the Biden regime.  Meanwhile, the tidal wave continues along the southern border with mostly young, military-aged males coming across, some of them decked out in new camouflage gear.  We are becoming the Roman Empire.  We cannot control our borders and we will come to regret it especially since we have an UNELECTED ‘administration’ in the White House.
  84. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden Regime News I–  The White House proposes lowering the proposed ‘infrastructure bill’ to $1.7 trillion in the hopes the GOP will bite.  Later in the day, the Republicans said, “Hell, no.”  Back to the old drawing board.  Next, the Biden regime says that there will be NO requirements for foreign visitors to show proof of Chi-Com virus vaccination.  However, we expect the Dems are going to continue pushing Americans to have ‘COVID-19 passports.’  (Note- how soon before the Bidenistas require everyone to undergo anal swabs like they do in communist China?)  Meanwhile, Joe Biden names a special envoy to North Korea.  Big whoop.  Our money’s on Bill Richardson.
  85. 2021 Friday H: Political News I– After a mysterious letter on the letterhead of the Capitol Hill Police Department, one written by an ANONYMOUS ‘member of the squad that admonished Republicans for their resistance to the January 06, 2021, Capitol Hill Riots- the greatest FALSE FLAG OPERATION IN AMERICAN POLITICAL HISTORY- the Department said today the letter was ‘not them.’  (Note- Democrats always love ANONYMOUS postings so they can make it seem like there are many of them lurking in the shadows or that they are whistleblowers or worse, to tar and feather their opponents without having to take incoming.  We have seen this many times before and we will continue seeing it again- it’s what these cowards do).
  86. 2021 Friday I: Political News II– The FBI is investigating the discovery of SEVEN NOOSES dangling from the rafters at the site of an Amazon plant under construction.  The picture we saw of ONE noose did indeed appear to be a genuine noose and not the garage door draw-down that Bubba Watson was crying and sniveling about prior to a race.  We are sure they will track down the culprits and when they do it will be yet another FALSE FLAG OPERATION.  It almost always is.   Next, Governor Spencer Cox, R-UT, a backing a resolution to band the teaching of Critical Race Theory.   Good.  Elsewhere, former U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr says that ‘militantly secularist public schools’ have proven to be a disaster and that things must change.  Finally, even though Joe Biden abolished it, President Donald J. Trump’s 1776 Commission is meeting anyway.  Yet another sign that Joe Biden is going to be evicted from the White House soon.  
  87. 2021 Friday J: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1661 has a $515 million jackpot on the line for some lucky person or persons.  Here are the numbers: 06, 09, 17, 18, 48 and Mega 08.  Out of 247,392 winning tickets, the highest winners were NINE people who had FOUR numbers plus the MEGA for a prize of $6,665 apiece.
  88. 2022 Saturday: If we fail to do it this year, we will do it next year.  It is what it is and besides…we have to be cautious of the new Disinformation Governance Board.  Yeah, right.  Screw them and screw the administration.

  61. 2020 Sunday A: Now, interesting note here: people are criticizing Russia for not sharing their REAL stats, they say the number of deaths are too low.  Well, Russia said today they are only listing those citizens actually killed by the coronavirus and not those who might have died with the virus but from other things.  Would that not be great if the CDC would do the same thing, and would it not be great if the CDC forced every state to report the actual statistics?  Here’s Russia’s stats: 281,752 confirmed cases, 2,631 confirmed deaths, and 67,373 confirmed recoveries.  IF anyone is lying about their numbers, it’s the communist Chinese, the nation that gave this crap to the entire world.  Here are their numbers: 88,423 confirmed cases, 4,634 confirmed deaths, and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  People’s Republic of China: NOTHING BUT LIARS.
  62. 2021 Monday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 164,253,597 confirmed cases, +523,609, 3,403,704  confirmed deaths, +10,308 and 144,165,892 confirmed recoveries, +84,530.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,744,062 confirmed cases, UP 21,893 from yesterday’s reporting, 600,504 confirmed deaths, UP 339,[vii] and 27,193,861 confirmed recoveries, UP 57,841.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[viii]   
  63. 2021 Monday A: NOTE: Since JOE BIDEN became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 284,283 Chi-Vi deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 175,326 deaths.     
  64. 2021 Monday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,769,895 confirmed cases, 62,698 confirmed deaths, and 2,012,591 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,293,980 confirmed cases, 36,139 confirmed deaths, and 1,891,240 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 33,834 confirmed cases, 492 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 424,930 confirmed cases, 5,684 confirmed deaths, and 205,072 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Wuhan repatriated: they have 3 confirmed cases, 0 confirmed deaths, and 3 confirmed recoveries.[ix]   In other COVID-19 news, the Lone Star State reports NO new Chi-Vi deaths two months after Joe Biden called the state leadership ‘Neanderthals’ because they ended the mask mandates.  My, my, my.  Meanwhile, the director of the Centers of Disease Control was busy defending the mask mandate.  (Note- millions of Americans no longer believe masks work and that they have become a more a political statement than they were ever about health.  After all, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci said in the beginning of the Chi-Vi crisis that ‘masks were ineffective,’ then they were, then perhaps two were required, then maybe even goggles (that one vanished quickly), and finally 3, 4, or more masks were necessary.  BULLS**T.  Hey- why NO earmuffs, Dr. Fauci?).
  65. 2021 Monday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,159 confirmed cases, 6,389 confirmed deaths, and 832,093 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Albania, an ancient nation: 132,032 cases of the virus, 2,435 confirmed deaths and 125,419 confirmed recoveries.[x]     
  66. 2021 Monday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,327.79, DOWN 54.34 points (-0.16%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,379.05, DOWN 50.93 points (-0.38%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,163.29, DOWN 10.56 points (-0.25%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $66.30 per barrel, +0.03 (+0.03%).  The price of GOLD is $1,869.70 per troy oz., +2.10 (+0.11%) while the price of SILVER is $28.36 per troy ounce, +0.09 (+0.30%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,245.70 per troy oz, +1.20 (+0.10%) while the price of COPPER is $4.73 per pound, +0.02 (+0.38%).[xi]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,906.73 per troy oz, +5.51 (+0.19%).[xii] The price of RHODIUM is $28,400.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (+0.00%).[xiii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000023.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.44 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.77.     In Turkmenistan Manat, one greenback equals 3.49 and in Ugandan Schilling, a buck equals 3,523.94 and in Ukrainian Hryvnia, one dollar equals 27.51 of theirs.[xiv]   In other business news, the availability of fresh oranges and coffee may soon be in question or worse, prices will rise uncontrollably because Brazil is fighting a water shortage.  (Note- there was a time when we made or grew many of the things our country required to improve life for the American people whereas at some point a few decades back, we outsourced everything to other nations.  Globalism does not work nor is it wanted).  
  67. 2021 Monday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.132 per gallon, $2.893 in Florida, $3.854 in Hawaii, and $3.539 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- Virginia: $2.936.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Saudi Arabia: $2.251 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,298,240,723,054 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  68. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– First, today is Day 55 for ‘Border Czar Kamala Harris NOT visiting the southern border.  Second, the Acting Director of ICE Tony Pham admits that once Immigration and Customs Enforcement dumps illegal aliens in the interior of the country, they no longer monitor them.  Next, Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-TX 1st congressional district, blasted the Joe Biden regime on failing to fulfill its duty to the American people and putting an end to the invasion along the southern border.  Senator Tommy Tuberville, R-AL, says that U.S. Department of Homeland Security Director Alejandro Mayorkas ‘is not taking the border crisis seriously.’  Meanwhile, One America News released updates stats on the numbers: the cost of caring for the tidal wave of illegal aliens on the American taxpayers is- $489,79,264.  Next, here are the numbers for the illegals that have flowed into the country since January 20, 2021- 1,532,565 illegals.  The total cost of caring for these illegal aliens this year now sits at $149,530,181,632.  Finally, the current number of illegal aliens lurking within the U.S. is around 35,532,564 which means, we are being overwhelmed. 
  69. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden Regime News I– Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says that ‘Joe Biden could erase $1.7 trillion in student loan debt with the stroke of a pen.’  (Note- of course but that does NOT mean that debt simply vanishes.  Someone is left holding the bag).  Next, Joe Biden approves the sale of $735 million in military aid to Israel as they fight to survive.  In other Joe Biden news, news reports suggests that pressure is increasing on both him and the Federal Reserve to do something about rising inflation.   Meanwhile, Joe Biden seeks to codify Roe even though Mississippi and other states are passing common sense laws regarding the murdering of the unborn.  (Note- funny how when it comes to slaying the unborn within their mother’s womb, it’s ‘my body my choice’ whereas when it comes to allowing the American people to remove their masks, it’s NOT my body, my choice.  HIV-AIDS patients should be having to show health cards, too, instead of, uh, like in San Francisco, one does not have to inform their partner of their HIV-AIDS status).
  70. 2021 Monday H: Joe Biden News–  Last year, Joe Biden reportedly made $607,336 in earnings and paid a federal income tax rate of 25.9-percent.  In other Joe Biden news, that nut-job, Rep. Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, DS-MI 13th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden is taking orders from Benjamin Netanyahu’ and urges the United States to condemn Israel.  STFU jihadist.
  71. 2021 Monday I: Political News I–  Journalist Jeff Greenfield says that the ‘GOP is united and that it’s rallying around President Donald J. Trump.’  Next, (and this is strange), the Department of Homeland Security is trembling in its jackboots that for some unspecified reason, domestic terrorists might be planning on launching attacks during the rollback of mask mandates and the lessening of the Wuhan Flu.  (Note- not clear as to why they believe something as stupid as this; then again, they could have some operatives ready to launch new FALSE FLAG OPERATIONS.  We guess we shall see).  In other news, President Donald J. Trump is scheduled to speak at the GOP Convention in North Carolina on June 05, 2021.  Finally, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, says that the only one benefitted by the ‘mask mandates’ is Joe Biden.
  72. 2021 Monday J: Social Media News And Big Tech News– The CEO of Cameo says that President Donald J. Trump can join their platform.   Next, Vimeo dumps My Pillow guy, Mike Lindell.  Meanwhile, Judge Mark L. Wolf says the court may take Twitter to task over allegations that the social media site prohibits or bans conservative speech while promoting far-left, loony tunes speech.  Good.  Bust them up.  Elsewhere, Parler is back in the App store and also has a new CEO.  In other BIG TECH news, the Wall Street Journal reports that Bill Gates may have been removed as head of Microsoft over a lengthy affair with an underling, i.e., an employee.  Add to his woes the fact that ties reportedly exist between him and murdered pedophile, Jeffrey Epstein.
  73. 2022 Tuesday: Yes, we know, we are running behind but business is back!

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

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

Kennedy’s plan went awry from the start as Castro’s forces crushed the incursion by the third day.  The CIA was going to provide the freedom fighters with air cover but then President Kennedy and his brother, U.S. Attorney General Robert F. “Bobby” Kennedy got cold feet and left them to their demise.

  44. 1997 Thursday: New Jersey Devils Martin Brodeur is second NHL goalie to score in a playoff game.
  45. 2003 Thursday: U.S. forces get lucky in Iraq as they scoop up one of deposed dictator Saddam Hussein’s half-brothers, Barzan Ibrahim Hassan al-Tikriti, the leader of Iraq’s intelligence-gathering agency, the Mukhabarat.  Off he goes to a black site. 
  46. 2004 Saturday: Once again, the Israelis get their man: Hamas leader and thug- Abdel Aziz Ali Abdul Majid al-Rantisi, the famed “Lion of Palestine” embarks on a journey to meet with Muhammad.  An Israeli missile strike blows the piece of desert scum to bits.  Congratulations, Israel.  Elsewhere, Spain swears in its new socialist leader, Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, on this date. 
  47. 2005 Sunday: Indonesians across the country have been participating in anti-Israel and anti-American protests, mostly due to the U.S. invasion of Iraq and Israel, well, Muslim nations are always angry with Israel.  It is what it is.
  48. 2006 Monday: A Palestinian POS- a member of Islamic Jihad- killed 11 people and wounded loads of others when he detonated a bomb in the old bus station in Tel Aviv.  That’s the so-called ‘religion of peace’ for you.  A spokesperson for Hamas called it ‘an act of self-defense.’
  49. 2007 Tuesday: U.S. military deaths in Iraq have now surpassed 3,300 what with at least 58 being killed so far this month.  Not good.  Iraq says we killed three of their law enforcement officers today while civilians claim the U.S. fires on random families as they go about their daily lives.  We doubt this.
  50. 2008 Thursday: Chairman Lee Hung-Kee of the Samsung Group finds himself under indictment as on tax evasion and breach of trust.  Say it ain’t so.
  51. 2009 Friday: The Obama administration releases four memos from his predecessor President George W. Bush’s administration outlining torture of detained terrorist suspects.  President Obama promises no prosecutions for CIA agents which makes the leftists who voted for him thinking they were going to get some payback even more angry.   Meanwhile, a new study hits the news cycle claiming that the victims of most airstrikes in Iraq are ‘women and children.’  Somehow, we knew this would be the case…sounds like Hamas talking.
  52. 2010 Saturday: Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, calls for the expulsion of the United States from the international nuclear system because their religion prohibits the use of nuclear weapons, and the Obama administration is saying hateful stuff about their intentions.
  53. 2011 Sunday: The Mid-April 2011 southern United States tornado outbreak results in over 30 deaths; North Carolina is the state worst affected.  Elsewhere, law enforcement authorities in Beijing go on a rampage, scooping up underground Protestant church members and whisking them off to holding pens.  So much for freedom of religion.  Oh, wait- the Chinese communists don’t have ‘freedom of religion.’ 
  54. 2012 Tuesday: Senior members of the U.S. government admit that during the 6th Summit of the Americas that 11 U.S. Secret Service agents and possibly some military personnel were schlepping as many as 20 hos while in country in Colombia protecting President Barack Obama and other diplomats.
  55. 2013 Wednesday: In the U.S., a centerpiece proposal on background checks aimed at tightening gun control, fails in a Senate vote.  Elsewhere, in North Korea, border authorities are preventing South Koreans from supplying their fellow countrymen inside the now-shuttered Kaesong industrial zone.  The North Koreans want their apologies after yesterday’s burning of North Korea’s leaders in Seoul.
  56. 2014 Thursday: NASA’s Kepler space telescope confirms the discovery of the first Earth-sized planet in the habitable zone of another star.  Elsewhere, following the ferry disaster off South Korea, Korean navy divers continue searching for 290 people who still are missing.  What a mess.  Meanwhile, the Ukrainian military is angry over the previous day’s events what with the loss of six armored personnel carriers to ‘pro-Russian mobs.’  The unit that lost its vehicles is disbanded and its members charged with crimes of aiding and abetting the Russians.
  57. 2015 Friday: Russian leader Vladimir Putin accuses the Obama regime of ‘destabilizing the Ukraine’ by sending U.S. paratroopers to train Ukraine’s reserve military forces.  Sadly, even with a ceasefire agreement between Ukraine and ‘separatist rebels’ (who are really Russian and Chechen special forces), fighting continues unabated.  Elsewhere, as fighting continues in Iraq’s Anbar Province as ISIS continues drawing closer to Ramadi, civilians begin fleeing the city. 
  58. 2016 Sunday: Heavy fighting continues around the Afghan city of Kunduz.  The Taliban are trying to encircle the city so they can cut it off from the outside, but Afghan government forces are having none of it.  They are giving as good as they get.  Taliban infiltrators are trying to penetrate government lines so as to set off attacks from within the city itself.
  59. 2017 Monday: The Chinese continue infringing upon the borders of India by holding first-ever military drills with Nepal.  Communists are like syphilis as they continue to spread and the only thing that can stop them is cutting them off the world body.  Meanwhile, Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli holding pens are on a hunger strike, protesting their food rations and quality.  Stop causing trouble and you can return home.
  60. 2018 Tuesday: Disgraced former FBI Director James Comey, detested by both Democrats and Republicans, publishes his (comic) book, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership.”  Big whoop.  It sinks almost as soon as it hits the bookstores.   Elsewhere, the United States government releases the names of Japanese military and medical personnel who took part in the infamous activities of Unit 731.  This unit conducted medical experiments that rivaled the cruelty of ones conducted by their Nazi allies during World War II.  When the war ended, the U.S. scooped up 3,607 of the unit’s members and in exchange for not prosecuting them for war crimes also scooped up all their scientific information (as most likely did the Soviets).  It was horrible times back then.
  61. 2019 Wednesday: After an 18-year-old female obsessed with the Columbine massacre begins making threats, schools in Denver, Colorado, undergo closure until police locate her dead body.  Elsewhere, Ukrainian security agents apprehend a Russian hit squad responsible for slaying a Ukrainian politician and were planning additional attacks in their country at the behest of Vladimir Putin.
  62. 2020 Friday: Although there is positivity as to how the United States is contending with the Chinese lab-engineered COVID-19 pandemic sweeping the world, it is still taking its toll.  At the time of this posting, the United States acknowledges 661,712 confirmed cases of the Kung Flu what with 33,049 confirmed deaths but 58,360 confirmed recoveries which is amazing.  Around the globe, there are 2,224,426 confirmed cases of this suspect disease, 153,177 confirmed deaths but 565,957 confirmed recoveries which is truly grand.   China- get this- is beginning to tell the truth but is still lying as far as many of us believe. They have updated their total confirmed case number to 88,273 what with 4,632 confirmed deaths and 82,487 confirmed recoveries.  However, everyone understands that communist nations always LIE, that they do everything possible to cover up disasters, which is precisely what the People’s Republic of China is doing.  As for the Stock Market, the DOW Jones Industrial Average closed at 24,242.49, UP 704.81 (2.99%); the NASDAQ closed at 8,650.14, UP 117.78 (1.38%); and the S & P closed at 2,874.56, UP 75.01 (2.68%).   Some states around the country are beginning to undergo reopening procedures but hardcore Democrat-controlled states continue extending their mitigation efforts in the hopes of tanking the economy if they can.  We believe, however, that these Democrat leaders are going to pay a horrendous price in the next 2-3 election cycles.  Keep it up!
  63. 2021 Saturday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 140,379,953 confirmed cases, +1,105,338, 3,007,708  confirmed deaths, +18,118, and 79,972,688 confirmed recoveries, +613,470.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,824,596 confirmed cases, UP 142,550 from yesterday’s reporting, 572,155 confirmed deaths, UP 1,624, and 119,025,387 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[vii]  In other COVID-19, a recent report says that Regeneron’s Chi-Vi cocktail can help prevent COVID-19 infections.
  64. 2021 Saturday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 246,196 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  Meanwhile, people are questioning WHY if everyone is getting their shots why the hell people must continue wearing masks like that dimwitted little troll, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci continues telling us to do.  WTF is up with that?  
  65. 2021 Saturday B: COVID-19 STATISTICS in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,714,406 confirmed cases, 60,883 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,162,067 confirmed cases, 34,404 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,510 confirmed cases, 473 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 385,695 confirmed cases, 5,427 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Connecticut, the home of two of the absolute worst senators in U.S. history- lying Dick Blumenthal and dimwit Chris Murphy: they have 329,062 confirmed cases, 7,995 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[viii] 
  66. 2021 Saturday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 836,936 confirmed cases, 6,331 confirmed deaths, and 828,235 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Tunisia, the original flashpoint for the Arab Spring: 281,777 cases of the virus, 9,639 confirmed deaths and 232,643 confirmed recoveries.[ix]  
  67. 2021 Saturday D: U.S. DOLLAR CONVERSIONS– Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.52 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.91.     In Guinean Franc, one greenback equals 9,947.00 and in Guyana Dollar, a buck equals 207.98.[x]
  68. 2021 Saturday E: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE FOUR STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.963 per gallon, $2.829 in Florida, $3.755 in Hawaii, and $3.365 in Washington state.[xi]    Let’s look at one other location- Indiana: $2.847.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,182,529,180,837 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xii]
  69. 2021 Saturday F: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND I– Esteemed legal scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz blasted Democrats by saying ‘it would be a disaster to add additional justices to the U.S. Supreme Court’ which Democrats now want to do.  They claim that President Donald J. Trump and then-Senate Majority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell ‘got away with stealing two Supreme Court seats, the one Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch now holds as well as the one Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett now holds.’  According to Congressman Jerrold “Dough Boy” Nadler, DS-NY 10th congressional district, and Senator Ed Markey, DS-MA, both far-left losers claim both those seats belong to the Democrats, so they believe the only thing to do is to expand the number of justices on the court.  Wow.   Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis, R-NY 11th congressional district, slams the Democrats over their court-packing scheme, saying it’s the worst thing she has seen since coming to Congress.
  70. 2021 Saturday G: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND II– Corey Lewandowski told Newsmax TV that the Chi-Coms pose a greater danger to the United States than do the Russians.  We concur.  Congressman Dan Bishop, R-NC 9th congressional district, told Newsmax TV that the ‘Russian bounty story,’ the one the Fake News media and liberal Democrats hammered President Donald J. Trump with for about half a year last year, a story we now know to be bogus,[xiii] demonstrates the hypocrisy of both the liberal media and of Joe Biden.  They lie through their teeth and then sweep it under the rug. 
  71. 2021 Saturday H: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND III– Federal officials reverse the fetal tissue research ban so scientists can once again use the remains of the aborted in their medical studies.  How nice.  Meanwhile, U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland erased Trump-era limits on consent decrees on the nation’s police agencies.  Once again, the left wants to politicize every police department as they are attempting to do with every other branch of the federal government.   Elsewhere, former House speaker and BIG LOSER John Boehner stands to rake in $20 million with his pro-pot and anti-GOP endeavors.  What a POS.  Next, Roger Stone is being sued for back taxes.  Finally, for some inexplicable reasons, following GOP leadership pushing back against the formation of an America First Caucus in the House, it seemingly now is not going to happen.  That sucks.  Who did it?  Kevin McCarthy?  Steve Scalise?  That skank, Liz Cheney?  They all need to go.  
  72. 2021 Saturday I: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND IV– Gary Gensler took the oath of office today to become the next head of the Securities and Exchange Commission.   Moving on, U.S. Secretary of the Interior Debra Haaland, the first Norwegian-Native American to hold the position has erased 12 President Donald J. Trump climate policies.  Bet you feel good, Madam Secretary.
  73. 2021 Saturday J: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS– The Iranians say they know who messed up their Natanz nuclear facility, but the dirty dog somehow evaded their dragnet and escaped the country.  Hmmm.  They named this person as 43-year-old Reza Karimi, a person whom they claim somehow committed a dastardly act of sabotage and then skipped the country hours before the computers were trashed.  They have gone to Interpol seeking his immediate arrest and extradition back to the glorious Islamic Republic of Iran.  We hope he stays safe.  Elsewhere, incredibly stupid Alexei Navalny, Vladimir Putin’s Number One Critic, a person poisoned by Putin’s thugs, who then found a way to get to Germany for treatment, and then returned to the Motherland.  Once there, he was tried and sent to prison for bogus crimes and is now being tortured and force-fed since he is on a hunger protest.  Why did you return to Russia?   Finally, Prince Philip underwent burial today.  The Royal Family was there, and Meghan Markle sent a wreath and a hand-written card.  Awesome.
  74. 2021 Saturday K: SUPER LOTTO AND POWERBALL DRAWINGS– first, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3552 with a $38 million on the line: 02, 07, 12, 29, 44, and Mega 03.  Out of 122,366 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $10,574 apiece.  Here are the four winners: (1) Chevron, Folsom, CA 95630 (2) Chevron, Corona, CA 92879 (3) 7-11, San Diego, CA 92128 and (4) Ralphs, San Diego, CA 92127.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #838 with a prize of $79 million on the line: 10, 21, 26, 41, 49, and Powerball 25.  Out of 47,609 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $13,607 apiece.
  75. 2022 Sunday: Friends, we understand that the left can say whatever they want about whomever they want.  However, they persecute us for making light of all manner of things, lampooning bigwig politicians, or criticizing drastic social changes.   Well, we will do our best to clean things up and put our critics at ease.  What the hell.  We do not seek to offend our readers (or those claiming to be readers); no, we seek to enlighten, elucidate, and educate our readership in the pursuit of the truth and the interaction of various opinions.  We hope you seek the same with us instead of being woke crybabies.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

106. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, APRIL 16, 2022

Friends, we understand that the left can say whatever they want about whomever they want. However, they persecute us for making light of all manner of things, lampooning bigwig politicians, or criticizing drastic social changes. Well, we will do our best to clean things up and put our critics at ease. What the hell.

  64. 2017 Sunday: Dictatorial thug leader of Turkey- Recep Tayyip Erdogan- ‘wins’ approval for an 18-article constitutional reform which thrusts the nation ever deeper into totalitarianism.  Elsewhere, due to the stupidity of Hamas and Fatah officials, the Gaza Strip’s ONLY power generating plants shuts down.  It has run out of fuel, its bills have gone unpaid, many among the leadership have skimmed off fortunes from money given to the Palestinian Authority and all they can do is to blame it on the ‘blockade.’  Look, dimwits, the answer is simple: stop building tunnels into Israel and do something for your people.  Period.

  66. 2019 Tuesday: While many of us love the Seattle Seahawks, there is no reason as to WHY the team made quarterback Russell Wilson the highest-paid QB in the game, giving him both a $65 million signing bonus as well as a four-year extension worth $140 million.  The rest of the team is struggling so it appears Seattle is going down the path the Baltimore Ravens went with QB Joe Flacco.  Where is Joe NOW?   Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump vetoes a bill demanding an end to U.S. support for the Saudi-led coalition fighting Iranian-backed Houthi scum in Yemen.
  67. 2020 Thursday: Jobless claims due to COVID-19, the Chinese gift to the world that won’t stop giving, come in at 5.2 million for the week.  Total claims since social distancing and economic shutdown hit 22 million Americans out of work.  This is all because of China.  We must make them pay when we come to the end of the pandemic, which we hope is soon.  Word continues to appear that demonstrate that the Wuhan Virus Crisis did indeed come out of a Chinese laboratory in the city of Wuhan where it just so happens the Chinese conduct biowarfare studies.  Although they continue lying that the virus came from somewhere else, who can believe a single word a communist regime says?  Communists always lie, it’s in their DNA which is why no one should take them at their word.  COVID-19 Statistics: currently, there are 2,151,199 confirmed cases around the planet what with 1 confirmed cases around the planet what with 143,725 confirmed fatalities as well as 541,501 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 672,931 confirmed cases with 34,386 confirmed deaths and 54,594 confirmed recoveries.  The Chinese claim 84,593 confirmed cases, 3,342 confirmed deaths and 79,112 confirmed recoveries.  Boy do the communists lie.

  75. 2021 Friday F: GUNS, GUNS, GUNS– You know folks, last night, 19-year-old Brandon Scott Hole went into the FedEx facility at the Indianapolis, Indiana, airport, shot and killed 8 people, wounded several others, and then took his own life.  His mother reportedly warned the cops last year that her son might try to go out via suicide by cop.  This is a tragedy for all involved but here’s the deal: since Joe Biden has become president, there have been more mass shootings than there were under the last two years of President Donald J. Trump what with 30 dead so far this month alone.  This tells us that the rhetoric used by feeble old Joe Biden and his Democratic Party henchmen-and-women is driving the nuts to go berserk, shooting, and killing and maiming innocent people.  It is clear many fear they are going to lose their weapons and since they have unfinished business, are going to act on it NOW.  Stop with all the HATE SPEECH, Joe, enough is enough.  (Note- the cops in Indianapolis say they are searching for a motive.  What the hell!  Mr. Hole wanted to die, and he had some people with whom he wanted to settle scores.  Period).
  76. 2021 Friday G: BULLS**T POLL OF THE DAY– a recent PEW Poll says that Joe Biden’s approval rating stands at 59-percent.  Please.  This nothing but crap.  Speaking of Joe Biden, Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, says, that ‘Joe Biden is not up to the task at hand, especially the Chi-Coms who are our biggest threat and someone we should have nuked back in 1951.  In other Joe Biden news, he is holding his first meeting with another foreign leader, Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga of Japan, at the White House today.  We wonder who is speaking for him.   Anyhow, the two leaders agree that the Taiwan Strait must remain stable.
  77. 2021 Friday H: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE– common sense people are beginning to ask WTF we shut our country down over the Chi-Com virus when hundreds of thousands of people continue swamping across our border and disappearing into the interior of the country?  If the federal government could give a flying f**k about how many of the invaders have COVID-19, then why should anyone else?  Speaking of the border crisis, President George W. Bush- an ‘esteemed former president’ if one ever existed (yeah, right) says he supports immigration reform but not amnesty.  George, we feel the same way about you as we do Jimmy Carter.  When either one of you dimwits says anything, we quickly move onto something else.   
  78. 2021 Friday I: JOE BIDEN REFUGEE NEWS–  House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, the dumb b***h who slurs her words bad enough already but with a mask strapped over her pie hole makes it even more difficult to understand what the hell she is saying chided Joe Biden on not taking in enough refugees.  Oh, please, Nance, please Joe, bring in some more winners like Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, like the Syrian shooter in Boulder, Colorado, like the Boston bombers, please, bring in some more of those America-hating POS, we need more of them ASAP.   Meanwhile, Joe Biden moves to placate our European allies and says he will remove Trump-era caps on the number of refugees our country accepts in.  That truly sucks.
  79. 2021 Friday J: POLITICAL NEWS I– Someone said Chelsea “The Genius” Clinton may run for Congress.  Good God Almighty, please say it ain’t so.  She is as stupid as is the Fly, aka Baby Evita, aka Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, she with her Boston College economics degree.   Then again, she would fit right in with all the dimwitted Democrats serving in Congress already like Hank “Flat Top” Johnson, DS-GA 4th congressional district, and Congresswoman Sheila “Putty Puss” Jackson Lee, DS-TX 18th congressional district, and Congressman ‘Mr.’ James “Influence” Clyburn, DS-SC 6th congressional district, she would fit right in.   
  80. 2021 Friday K: POLITICAL NEWS II– Glenn Beck said today on his radio show that in the cities where Black Lives Matter protesters ran amok raping, pillaging, looting, robbing, and beating, there were a combined total of more than 6,000 additional homicides.  Coincidence?  We think not.  They are not a peace-loving group; they are fascist black-and-brown-shirted thugs in need of eradication.  Elsewhere, in other political news, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, has challenged the highly cerebral Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DS-NY 14th congressional district to a debate on the Green New Deal.  Now, we would pay handsomely to get ringside seats to see this duel to the death, MTG doing battle with the Fly on pay-per-view-TV.  Sign us up now.
  81. 2021 Friday L: POLITICAL NEWS III– In other political news, we learn that the director for the new Black Panther sequel is NOT going to follow his WOKE liberal comrades and boycott Georgia.  Good.  ‘WOKE’ will go away when people pay it NO attention.  None of us are going to NFL, NBA, or MLB games ever again nor are we going to buy Coca-Cola® products, Nike® sportswear, or any of the other crap that is boycotting everything.  We are not going to see movies, we do not have to see how stupid we are, how great the Chi-Coms and perverts are, enough is enough.   Elsewhere, the great state of Florida passes an anti-riot bill.  About time someone does.  Look, government’s number one job is this: protecting the lives of its citizens and their property.  Plain, simple, and easy for the stupid to understand.  Once you raise an arm to throw a Molotov cocktail, you get shot.  Once you throw bricks and don’t stop when you are told to stop, you get shot.  Once you start looting, you are eligible to get shot.  This is the way it always was and should be again.
  82. 2021 Friday M: 2020 ELECTION NEWS– reports continue to arise that the number one person behind the changed election laws in numerous states and in the subsequent theft of the election from President Donald J. Trump is Bill and Hillary Clinton’s number one hired thug, attorney Mark Elias.  A partner at Perkins Cole, he is the head of their ‘political law’ department and this man- if we are to believe what we are now learning- is the number one operative behind the stolen election and the subsequent cover-ups of the theft.  In all states where election information has already been trashed, those states should have to hold another election at their expense.
  83. 2021 Friday N: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– We learn that Hunter Biden’s NEW book in which he talks about smoking crack, banging teenaged whores, and doing all sorts of other evil and disgusting stuff has sold a whopping 10,638 books in its first week.  According to Bill O’Reilly, this is ‘crap’ seeing as how Bill’s new book, “Killing the Mob” has already sold 60,000 copies and is not even on the shelves of bookstores yet.  In other news, people are lamenting the 13-year-old boy who was shot dead in Chicago the other night by a cop.  Adam Toledo, aka Lil Homicide and Baby Diablo was gangbanging with his buds at 2:30 in the morning, running around with a loaded gun, shot at cops, then ran away and dumped the gun just as the cops rolled up and got shot.  YOU don’t want to get shot, don’t be banging, don’t be shooting at cops, and don’t be running around in the middle of the night.  Period.   We shed no tears.  Next, Raul Castro, dictator of Cuba, says yes indeed, he is going to resign.  Wow.
  84. 2021 Friday O: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– U.S. Interior Secretary Debra Haaland, the first Norwegian-Native American to hold the job, is dumping Trump era rules concerning the fossil fuel industry’s rights on public lands.  Apparently, oil and gas companies will no longer be able to drill for vital national resources leaving us dependent upon OPEC, Russia, and other Third World producers of energy.  This makes no sense.  Next, conservative House Republicans are forming the ‘America First Caucus,’  a group to continue the legacy of President Donald J. Trump.   Next, Minneapolis public schools are hurriedly switching over to online learning as the city (and the country) braces for the verdict in the murder trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin.   Finally, the mother of slain EMT Breonna Taylor- Tamika Palmer- slams both State Representative Attica Scott, D-Louisville, and BLM, labeling both of them as ‘frauds’ in the aftermath of the shooting death of her daughter.  According to Ms. Palmer, she watched the TWO raise money off the death of Breonna without doing a damned thing to help her family.  Wow.  We understand.
  85. 2021 Friday P: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1651: 17, 27, 28, 50, 55, and Mega 25.  Out of 105,680 winning tickets, the highest winners were 64 people who had four numbers for a prize of $496 apiece.
  86. 2022 Saturday: Friends, we understand that the left can say whatever they want about whomever they want.  However, they persecute us for making light of all manner of things, lampooning bigwig politicians, or criticizing drastic social changes.   Well, we will do our best to clean things up and put our critics at ease.  What the hell.

  35. 1945 Friday: In the largest naval operation in the Pacific Theater in World War II, 1,500 U.S. Navy warships pound Japanese positions on the island of Okinawa.  Okinawa will become the bloodiest fight of the Pacific War as once it is subdued; the next stop will be mainland Japan.

  60. 2015 Monday: After combatting the effects of pneumonia for several weeks, Lee Kuan Yew—91-year-old founder of the nation of Singapore and its leader for 31 years—died.  Elsewhere, the Pentagon is busy alerting U.S. servicemembers who are on an ISIS hit list.  No one knows whether this jihadist scum possesses the ability to strike targets in America, but the U.S. military is not going to permit any harm to come to its people if it can stop such attacks.  
  61. 2016 Wednesday: Researchers using GPR imaging determine that the skull of William Shakespeare most likely has been stolen from his tomb at the Holy Trinity Church in Stratford, United Kingdom.   Elsewhere, police in Brussels, Belgium, identify two of the attackers in the recent attacks on a subway station and an airport as a pair of homegrown jihadist brothers.  The search is on for a third man, the reputed ISIS bomber lurking somewhere within the country.  Track him down and KILL him.  Meanwhile, a U.S. airstrike on an al-Qaida camp in the lovely country of Yemen kills dozens of jihadists.
  62. 2017 Thursday: American singer and actress Lola Albright dies at age 92.

  63. 2018 Friday: President Donald J. Trump released an order banning most transgender troops from serving in the military except under “limited circumstances.”  Meanwhile, the online classified ads site Craigslist removed its personals section; the action came after the U.S. Senate passed an anti-sex-trafficking bill that could hold the website and others responsible for illegal activity.  Elsewhere in Sochi, Russia, in one of the largest transfers of desert sand ever, a sandstorm in the Sahara transforms the snow from white to orange. 
  64. 2019 Saturday: With the signing of Xi Jinping- Chinese dictator- and Deputy Prime Minister Luigi Di Maio, Italy signs onto China’s Belt and Road Initiative.  A year later, the Italian people are wondering why they are Ground Zero for China’s Wuhan Virus outbreak in Europe.   Meanwhile, with the raising of Syrian Democratic Forces flag over the Syrian city of Baghuz, civilized people proclaim the vanquishing of the ISIS caliphate.  The terrorist scum had held the area for five bloody years. 
  65. 2020 Monday: Due to illness and self-quarantine, the Republican-controlled Senate is not in control with only 48 members present.  The Democrats under Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, at the behest of Speaker Nancy Pelosi will NOT pass a bill designed to protect the country’s economy while providing support to the afflicted unless Republicans sign on to more Obamacare-like government-run medical claptrap as well as all manner of identity politics desires, Green New Deal insanity, increased protections for illegal aliens, and additional Pro-Death protections.  As of the time of this publishing, the GOP was still holding out, hoping the Dems would regain their senses and stop with the insanity but oh, no, they simply won’t surrender their partisan politics.  COVID-19 statistics: earlier in the day, there were 354,677 known cases of the Chinese Virus what with the number of infections up in previous 24 hours standing at 21,115; total known deaths are 15,430, up 940 in 24 hours.  In the United States, total known cases are 35,345 what with 473 deaths, up by 56 in past 24 hours.  This does not account for the stats for the second part of the day.
  66. 2021 Tuesday: YESTERDAY’S NEWS CATCHUP- Dare we say this but the name of the individual who shot up the King Sooper Grocery Store in Boulder, Colorado, goes by the name of Ahmad Al-Aliwi Alissa.  Allah Akbar, anyone?  Meanwhile, Robert Aaron Long, the perp who carried out the Atlanta Massage Parlors Massacre found himself in court charged with ‘malice murder’ and ‘aggravated assault.’  The poor bastard was trying to conquer a sex addiction, something he will be unable to conquer in prison as everyone knows what goes on in there.  Sad.  Elsewhere, in the trial of former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin, after seating 2 alternate jurors yesterday giving the trial a full 12 plus the two, seated a 15th today in case one of the other ones drops or is forced out for some as yet unanticipated reason. 
  67. 2021 Tuesday A: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE I- White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki could not answer a reporter’s question as to WHY illegal alien mobs receive better treatment than do National Guard members protecting Fort Pelosi in Washington, D.C.  National Guard members have had to sleep in frigid parking garages and have been served undercooked, raw, or poor-quality food while illegals are pampered like Roman emperors.  Something is NOT right here.
  68. 2021 Tuesday B: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE II- Regarding the border mess, the Biden administration continues trying to deflect blame for the ongoing disaster onto President Donald J. Trump’s back.  Not working very well seeing as how President Trump handed Joe Biden a secure border.   Regarding the Biden Border Catastrophe, 40-percent in a recent poll blame Joe Biden 100-percent for the border catastrophe while 27-percent (the uneducated) blame President Donald J. Trump.  Another 12-percent blame Congress.  What everyone agrees on is the border must be secured NOW.  Speaking of the CRISIS, “Kooky Kamala” Harris says her administration received a f-up border from the previous administration and when asked if she was going to visit the border anytime soon, laughed it off.[iii] 
  69. 2021 Tuesday C: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE III-  the Republicans are dangling the bait of amnesty for DACA recipients, i.e., the much-beloved DREAMers (yeah, right- deport all of them NOW) in exchange for the Democrats agreeing to fix the broken farmworker visa system.  You know, we used to have the Bracero Program which allowed temporary workers to cross to and from the southern border to work in the United States and then to return home after the season ended.  What is so frigging difficult about this?  Just fix it and stop the tidal wave of illegals rampaging through our country.  Enough already!  Meanwhile, we learn that only 13-percent of family units crossing the southern border are turned back into Mexico.  Wow.
  70. 2021 Tuesday D: LAW ENFORCEMENT/LEGAL NEWS- Attorney Sidney Powell files a motion to dismiss suit in court to have the bogus lawsuit filed by the (allegedly) corrupt Dominion Voting Systems out of Canada.  These scumbags filed a frivolous lawsuit against all those who pointed out the fact that Dominion coupled with Hugo Chavez’s Smartmatic software STOLE the 2020 Presidential Election and threw it to decrepit old Joe Biden.   In other news, Regent University hosted a lengthy symposium on how the election fraud in 2020 occurred what with Michelle Bachman and Peter Navarro providing reams of evidence showing the crime committed before our eyes.  Elsewhere, the Massachusetts attorney general seeks to vacate thousands of drug convictions that were handed out using lab ‘evidence’ with which law enforcement tampered so as to achieve convictions.
  71. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. POLITICAL NEWS-  Congressman Mo Brooks, R-AL 5th congressional district announced today that he is running to fill the seat being vacated by retiring Senator Richard Shelby.  Good luck, Mo!  Meanwhile, Congressman James Comer, R-KY 1st congressional district, blasts the Biden tax plan as being little more than a wealth redistribution scheme.  Elsewhere, by a vote of 68-29, the U.S. Senate confirms the nomination of Boston Mayor Marty Walsh to become the next U.S. Secretary of the Labor Department.  From what we hear, the guy is a labor hack.  In other news, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district says that ‘efforts to expel me will fail.’  Next, Senator Tammy Duckworth, D-IL, says she won’t confirm anymore WHITE nominees sent to the U.S. Senate by the Biden administration until some Asian-Americans begin getting nominated for high posts- like what?  Ambassador to Micronesia?  Finally, Joe Biden says we can ban assault weapons.  Go for it.
  72. 2021 Tuesday F: ECONOMIC AND BUSINESS NEWS I-  Economist Steve Moore pointed out today how the $1,400 stimulus checks sent to, uh, not just American taxpayers but to felons in prison, illegal aliens, and even savvy foreigners could end up costing $11,000 each.  Not good.  Meanwhile, U.S. corporations are urging elected Democrats to push through the DREAMER bill so as to get all this cheap labor employed while American workers are left without.   However, corporations may not get the last laugh as U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen is promising to boost the U.S. corporate tax rate back to where it was- if not higher- than before President Donald J. Trump was in office.  Corporate heads, DON’T you wish you had supported the 45th president when you had the opportunity?   
  73. 2021 Tuesday G: ECONOMIC AND BUSINESS NEWS II- In other PANDERING NEWS, the city of Evanston, Illinois, becomes the first city in the United States to provide reparations to black Americans.  Wait, isn’t Evanston a NORTHERN CITY where slavery did not exist?  WTF is up with that?  (Note- NO longer can Democrats in Evanston use ‘slavery’ as a club to bash the heads of their political enemies.  NEVER).  Elsewhere, Joe Biden’s economic advisers are warning fellow Democrats to prepare for an additional $3 trillion in spending, much of which will go into HIGH-SPEED RAIL?  WTF?  This has never worked in the United States nor will it.  Next, Microsoft is in talks to buy instant messaging app, Discord.   Finally, Regal Cinemas plans a grand reopening across the country beginning on April 02, 2021.
  74. 2021 Tuesday H: FOREIGN AND OVERSEAS NEWS I- Following a complaint, the Federal Communications Commission- the FTC- is looking into allegations that two communist Chinese telecommunications companies, China Central Television and CGTN, for inserting propaganda into its broadcasts as well as showing coerced confessions by prisoners who have been mistreated.   Meanwhile, Russian officials say that Joe Biden has repeatedly rejected any open talks with Moscow so that mutual problems can be addressed, and grievances aired.  That’s Joe for you.  Speaking of Joe Biden, he’s going to address a virtual summit of European leaders this upcoming Thursday just as he is supposed to address the American people via a press conference.  (Note- we expect neither will occur or if they do, they will come off as Max Headroom with multiple takes, Deep Fakes, and hidden earpieces.  What a country).  Moving on, Dems are pressuring Joe Biden to ease sanctions on communist Venezuela.  Elsewhere, Saudi Arabia is proposing a ceasefire with the Houthi rebels.  Finally, Israeli voters are taking another shot at Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. 
  75. 2021 Tuesday I: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 123,924,888 confirmed cases, +408,189, 2,727,640 (down from yesterday’s figure), confirmed deaths, +7,937, and 70,320,511 confirmed recoveries, +344,632.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,104,069 confirmed cases, up 49,466 from yesterday’s reporting, 548,613 confirmed deaths, UP 442, and 117,037,711 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them. 
  76. 2021 Tuesday J: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 220,146 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another three-and-a-half-weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  In other COVID-19 news, the Centers for Disease Control are hammering AstraZeneca for using outdated data in their correlation of vaccine results.  Say it ain’t so.  Meanwhile, a new study suggests that low-dose aspirin can ward off the coronavirus.  Elsewhere, Pfizer is developing a pill with which to ward off the ‘VID.  (In other healthcare news, Governor Asa Hutchinson, R-AK, has signed a new antiabortion law into being, one that will challenge Roe v. Wade in the courts).   (Other News II- the teachers’ unions are pushing back on the CDC’s recommendations for social distancing: six feet or no teach).
  77. 2021 Tuesday K: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,646,171 confirmed cases, 57,799 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,912 confirmed cases, 454 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 358,762 confirmed cases, 5,232 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- the commonwealth of the Northern Marianas: currently, they have 158 confirmed cases, 2 confirmed deaths, and 32 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 828,764 confirmed cases, 6,109 confirmed deaths, and 807,653 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Philippines, home of Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos (and her legendary shoe collection): 677,653 cases of the virus, 12,992 confirmed deaths and 578,461 confirmed recoveries.  
  78. 2021 Tuesday L:   STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 32,423.15, DOWN 308.05 points (-0.94%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,227.70, DOWN 149.84 points (-1.12%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,910.52, DOWN 30.07 points (-0.76%).  The price of GOLD is $1,726.20 per troy oz., +1.10 (+0.06%) while the price of SILVER is $25.11 per troy ounce, -0.14 (-0.54%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,169.60 per troy oz, -5.00 (-0.43%) while the price of COPPER is $4.03 per pound, -0.05 (-1.14%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,605.00 per troy oz, -24.00 (-0.91%). The price of RHODIUM is $29,200.00 per troy oz.  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $57.42 per barrel, -0.34 (-0.59%)  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.52 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.79.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.   In Bangladeshi taka, one greenback equals 84.37.  
  79. 2021 Tuesday M: Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.882 per gallon, $3.612 in Hawaii, and $3.320 in Washington state.  Time to allow the country to return to fracking, there Joe Biden.   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,085,852,256,420 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.  Cloward and Piven running amok.  The country is going to crumble into nothingness.  IF the Chinese are going to become the masters of the world, well, what can we do except to join the band.
  80. 2021 Tuesday N: UNIDENTIFIED FLYING (AND SUBMERSIBLE) OBJECT NEWS- It would appear that the American people will soon learn the truth about UFOs although whether anyone will go the distance and inform us that the persons operating these crafts are not of this world is unclear.  Louis Elizondo was on Fox News this morning discussing the phenomena that has vexed millions around the world since the Roswell crash in New Mexico shortly after the end of World War II.  Elizondo provides three explanations as to the origins of these craft.  First, that they are BLACK OPERATIONS vehicles that only certain governmental organizations are aware of while the second is that the technology could be that of our enemies.  The third is that they come from somewhere else although no one wants to definitively state they come from somewhere NOT of this Earth such as interdimensional or interplanetary or interstellar origins.  To be a UFO, there must be at least one of five observable characteristics such as (1) the ability to accelerate almost instantaneously (2) hypersonic speeds (3) low observability (4) the ability to operate on various planes such as air to water, water to air, and whatever else observers might see and (5) the ability to move sans any form of wings, engine exhausts, and other characteristics associated with earthly flight.
  81. 2021 Tuesday O: FOREIGN/OVERSEAS NEWS II- North Korea sent a message to Joe Biden today in which, Kim Jong Un- the Great Leader II- fired off a barrage of short-range missiles into the sea this past weekend as a message to the White House that the Democratic Republic of North Korea does not like Joe Biden firing up the U.S.-South Korean military exercises.  Today, the Department of Defense said that ‘North Korea threatens the entire region.’  Wow.  We don’t think Chairman Kim likes Joe Biden very much.  It will be interesting to see what comes of this.  Meanwhile, the Biden administration still won’t say that labeling Vladimir Putin a ‘killer’ was the wrong thing to do.  Elsewhere, China lashes out at U.S. allies in a bid to thwart the agenda of “Joe Biden.”  The People’s Republic of China began slapping reciprocal sanctions onto the European Union for the pressure the ‘Biden administration’ and the EU are slapping onto Beijing for mistreating the citizens of Hong Kong, Tibet, and Uighur Muslims.  China says these are internal issues like mistreatment of minorities in the U.S. is an American internal issue.  Joe- the AICPENDBLOG.COM recommends YOU don’t start something with the PRC you can’t finish or win.
  82. 2021 Tuesday P: Stick around for the results of the Mega Millions Draw #1644 tonight what with a $122 million pot on the line for some lucky winner(s).  Here are the numbers: 12, 23, 35, 38, 55, and Mega 11.  Out of 80,188 winning tickets, the highest winners were three people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $6,340 apiece.
  83. 2021 Tuesday Q: END OF THE NIGHT NEWS FOREIGN/OVERSEAS III- We overlooked this story this morning but in a Rohingya refugee camp in Bangladesh, a massive fire broke out killing 560 people outright, thousands more injured, and causing the disappearances of another 400.  The U.N. says that 45,000 people have been displaced.   The Bangladeshis have given shelter to more than 1 million of their fellow Muslims whom the anti-Muslim government in neighboring Burma drove out back in 2017 via a concerted effort to kill all of them.  Next, even though Saudi Arabia proposed a ceasefire with the Houthi rebel scum in Yemen, the Houthis conducted an attack on Abha International Airport with a drone loaded up with explosives.   Had the ceasefire gone into effect, it would have permitted the reopening of the Sana’a airport in Yemen so that relief supplies could flow into the starving, impoverished civilians in the country.  Instead, we think the Saudis had better raze all Houthi-controlled areas. 
  84. 2021 Tuesday R: END OF THE NIGHT NEWS NATIONAL:  A 14th woman filed a lawsuit against Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson accusing him of exposing himself and performing lewd acts on them.  The quarterback denies all allegations and investigation is ensuing.  Unlike Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, we believe that Watson is facing false accusations and we will wait to see where the evidence takes us.   Elsewhere, the ‘Biden administration’ announces all official documents will bear the moniker ‘Biden-Harris Administration.’  Speaking of old Joe, he says he is going to take America’s guns away since a crazed Syrian refugee POS shot up the Boulder, Colorado, grocery store killing 10 people, all of whom were WHITE.  No one seems to be shedding tears for them but oh, those poor Asian hookers- uh, excuse me, masseuses- in Atlanta, which is an entirely different story.  Meanwhile, Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley, DS-MA 7th congressional district, says ‘making Washington, D.C. a state is a matter of racial equity seeing as how there are loads of black folks living there.’
  85. 2022 Wednesday: You know the drill…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by the Band is an archivist’s release featuring the group live at one of the all-time celebrated great shows following Woodstock.  “Live at Watkins Glen” came out on April 04, 1995, and features the Band’s performance at the famous site.  This concert for those who may not know featured a top bill of not only the Band but also the Grateful Dead and the Allman Brothers Band so folks, it was one long trip to be remembered or lost in the fog.  All three groups were in their peak eras although the Dead and the ABB would continue for decades to come so why not listen to this legendary set?  Both the Band and the Dead appeared at the Woodstock Music and Arts Fair of 1969 whereas the ABB did not.  One can only ponder why.  Ah, well, seek this one out and add it to your collection- you will be extremely glad you did, of that, we are positive.

  44. 1993 Sunday: A gun battle erupted near Waco, Texas, when Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (and Explosives) or ATF agents tried to arrest Branch Davidian leader David Koresh on weapons charges; however, it did not go well, and four agents and six Davidians lost their lives leading to a 51-day standoff.  The siege ended on April 19 as fire erupted while federal agents smashed their way (or attempted to) into the compound leading to the deaths of Mr. Koresh and 78 other Davidians including many children.  President Bill Clinton and his Attorney General, Janet Reno, were never charged for the crimes of killing American citizens on home soil and for using tanks, gas, and other means of murder and assault.  To this day, neither has been charged with the crime of murder but this display of tyranny later led Timothy McVeigh to bomb the federal building in Oklahoma City. 
  45. 1994 Monday: The so-called, “Brady Law,” goes into effect, which imposes a waiting period for the purchase of handguns.  Elsewhere, NATO conducted its first military strike when U.S. F-16 fighters shot down four Bosnian Serb warplanes in violation of a no-fly zone over central Bosnia.

  55. 2013 Thursday A: Acting U.S. Treasury Secretary Neil S. Wolin stepped down from office on this date.  A Democrat, he served under President Barack Hussein Obama from January 25, 2013, until today.  His replacement- the 76th U.S. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew- assumed office on this date.  Also, a Democrat, he served under President Barack Hussein Obama from today until January 20, 2017.
  56. 2014 Friday: New Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi announces plans to cut government spending and use the funds to decrease taxes on individuals and regional businesses; Italy’s unemployment rate increased 0.2 percent in January to 12.9 percent.  Meanwhile, in order to protect its ‘interests,’ Moscow sends troops into the Crimea. 
  57. 2015 Saturday: The vice president of the African nation of Sierra Leone, Samuel Sam-Sumana, announces he is going to undergo a voluntary 21-day quarantine after one of his bodyguards dies of Ebola; although the disease is slowing, there is still good reason for the precautionary measures.
  58. 2016 Sunday: In the 36th Annual Razzles Awards, the chick flick, “Fifty Shades of Gray,” wins Worst Picture Award, Worst Actor Award, and Worst Actress Award.  Amen.  What a load of crap.   Elsewhere, in Lake Ridge, Virginia, a brand-new female police officer, her first day on the job, is shot and killed while two other cops are wounded during a domestic violence dispute.
  59. 2017 Tuesday: The Trump administration announces a plan with which to increase the budget for the armed forces by 9-percent.   Meanwhile, Turkey continues going after last year’s ‘coup plotters’ against thug dictator Erdogan with more than 300 people scooped up, stuffed into prisons outside Ankara, there to await trial on charges of attempted murder and other crimes.  This is all bogus, the Turkish government is cleaning house on those who support democracy and free elections.
  60. 2018 Wednesday: The ‘humanitarian’ government of Rwanda shutters the doors of 700 ‘illegal churches,’ claiming they were ‘too noisy’ and that they lacked the appropriate building permits.  Meanwhile, one day after being questioned before the House Intelligence Committee, White House Communications Director Hope Hicks announces she is going to resign.
  61. 2019 Thursday: A summit meeting between the United States’ President Donald J. Trump and the overweight dictator of North Korea- Kim Jong Un- collapses with nothing to show for it.  Meanwhile, YouTube announces it will no longer permit comments on videos featuring children as pedophiles are the ones leaving most of the comments.[vi]  Elsewhere, the Israeli government announces that after more than two years of investigating Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu, they have enough evidence to indict him on charges of corruption and some other bull crap.  Sounds like they are learning lessons from the Democrats in the U.S.
  62. 2020 Friday: In the past six days of a worsening outbreak of the Kung Flu around the world, stock markets around the planet have reported a combined loss of $6 trillion of vanished wealth- and this is only the beginning.  Meanwhile, in Italy, cases of the China Virus are EXPLODING as another 450 plus cases are reported which brings their tally of cases to 888.  Deaths in that are approaching two dozen.  Not good.  Mexico, Lithuania, Nigeria, Belarus, New Zealand, Azerbaijan, and even Iceland report their first cases of this evil pandemic.  Greeks in Cyprus seal the border with the Turks in Northern Cyprus, land stolen by Turkey back in the 1970s.  The disease is spreading, rapidly, and it’s only a matter of time before it reaches everywhere.   In other news, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals blocks President Donald J. Trump’s ‘Remain in Mexico’ order.  (A year later, Joe Biden would throw the southern border WIDE OPEN!)
  63. 2021 Sunday: CPAC enters its final day and attendees are ecstatic over the wide range of conservative speakers leading up to President Donald J. Trump.   President Trump stood atop all straw polls pollsters conducted which is no surprise there.  Florida Governor Ron DeSantis followed by South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem came in second and third.  
  64. 2021 Sunday A: Congressman Jim Banks calls on the GOP to continue rallying the working class in the manner in which, President Donald J. Trump did.  The 45th president expanded the party, brought in the working classes, minorities, and naturalized immigrants.  He can and will continue doing that while the left continues becoming the party of the insane, the freaks, the illegal aliens, and the criminals.   Meanwhile, Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, R-CO, tells the CPAC crowd that she will resist all overreach efforts by the Democrats everywhere she finds them.  Conservative icon tells the crowd ‘be not afraid’ and to ‘always seek the truth.’
  65. 2021 Sunday B: Speaking of criminals, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo has tapped a retired federal judge (who just happens to have ties to HIM) to investigate ALL charges of sexual harassment and abuse lodged against him by former female staffers.  While very few expect anything to come of this, uh, ‘investigation,’ we would like to say this to Governor Cuomo: IF you had not tried to politicize all the aid the 45th president sent your way to combat the Chi-Com Virus and actually been honest, you might not be in the mess you are today just like had you not created a SWOLLEN head and published a book on ‘the great job YOU did fighting the virus,’ you might not be in trouble today.   However, when you think you are something more than you are, the Fates have a way of coming for YOU.  Return the Emmy, refund the publishers all monies paid to you and perhaps you will be able to avoid wearing an orange jump suit.  Dumb ass!  New York state lawmaker Alessandra Biaggi says, “Cuomo MUST GO.”  Interestingly, as Cuomo continues to sink CNN won’t cover him.
  66. 2021 Sunday C: The California Fire Trust has filed lawsuits against PG&E for the loss of life and properties California’s annual fire season bestows on the state.  We would like to suggest to the Trust that perhaps you should re-jigger your lawsuit and slap it on Governors Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom and Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown because the governors and other Democratic leadership bear more responsibility for the criminal doings within the state when it comes to maintaining (or NOT maintaining) a safe environment for all.  Add to that the fact the Democratic-Socialists demand PG&E go to all renewables within the next decade and you find a utility company beset by not enough revenue to do everything demanded of it.  Go after state Democrats and hold them to account before you punish PG&E. 
  67. 2021 Sunday D: California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom is not the ONLY one facing recall.  No, Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascón is facing the wrath of the voters, too.  A transplant from San Francisco (he was TOO radical for ‘Frisco), he has broken all campaign promises by freeing violent felons, not-prosecuting felons, and avoiding going after cartels, human traffickers, and other human filth.  The good people of L.A. County want to get this POS out of office ASAP.  Godspeed!
  68. 2021 Sunday E: Ohio Senator Rob Portman, Republican, says that COVID-19 relief bill should be one of bipartisanship and not the PORKULUS the Democrats are pushing which is the current slush fund for the next four years in much the same way the ‘stimulus’ of 2008-09 was a slush fund for Democrats throughout the Obama-Biden administration.   Senator Susan Collins, RINO-Maine, urges the ‘Biden administration’ to loosen restrictions on the U.S.-Canada border which have been clamped on since the outbreak of the Wuhan Virus Crisis.  We are unclear as to WHY they are still being imposed when every illegal alien and his or her brother can swarm into the United States along our border with Mexico. 
  69. 2021 Sunday F: Dick Morris says that only 16-percent of the U.S. population has received their Chi-Vi vaccines while Joe Biden is sending $4 billion worth of U.S.-manufactured vaccines to the Third World.   The 16-percent accounts for approximately 72.8-million doses of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu in the United States, mostly the first of two injections per person. 
  70. 2021 Sunday G: In other CPAC news, Congressman Jim Jordan, R-OH, says that President Donald J. Trump loves the country and that he has kept his word on every promise.  Meanwhile, Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch says that the American people must just ‘say no’ when it comes to amnesty for tens of millions of illegal aliens hiding within the fabric of the country.  Congressman Darrell Issa says that ‘the GOP is at war with Big Tech.’  He says that BIG TECH picks winners and losers and that that must change.  Section 230 must be changed because it was never designed to do what BIG TECH has taken it to say- protecting them from all rebukes while allowing them to determine who can and who cannot be heard or seen.   In other GOP news, the Nebraska GOP rebukes Senator Ben Sasse for going against Trump.  These losers forget for whom they work.
  71. 2021 Sunday H: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 113,972,687 confirmed cases, +597,352, 2,528,535, confirmed deaths, +12,639, and 64,368,922 confirmed recoveries, +442,452.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 28,833,039 confirmed cases, up 71,298 from yesterday’s reporting, 517,204 confirmed deaths, UP 2,066, and 16,497,071 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile drooling POS.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 188,695 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, STOP SENDING U.S. vaccines overseas, use them here at home you reprobate scumbag.  NOT OUR PRESIDENT!
  72. 2021 Sunday I: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,565,971 confirmed cases, 52,015 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,000 confirmed cases, 439 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 342,574 confirmed cases, 5,024 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Iowa: currently, they have 363,090 confirmed cases, 5,471 confirmed deaths, and 315,134 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 773,335 confirmed cases, 5,732 confirmed deaths, and 727,779 confirmed recoveries.
  73. 2022 Monday: Let’s see what befalls us today…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Formed in the late 1950s as the Hawks, the group that would come to be known as the Band evolved in 1967.  Featuring four Canadians and one American, the band erupted onto the stage with their first album, “Music from the Big Pink,” (July 01, 1968).  In some ways, the band was a throwback in that having performed with Bob Dylan for a lengthy time, they combined elements of acoustic folks with rock and roll with the music of the prairies, the back hills, and other American-Canadian forms in an extremely alluring package of sound.  The band features 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).  Their first album touched the souls of many and put them on a path to stardom, one that would take them to Woodstock in 1969 and beyond.  One of the big hits was “The Weight.”  We hope you will seek this album out and consider adding it to your growing collection of nothing but the absolute best in rock music.  You will be glad you did, of that, we guarantee.

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

Sunday, February 28, 2021, Today in History Blog Post:   

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

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

ENDNOTES:

[i] “Native Son” by Richard Wright is a book every American should read.

[ii] We shared the music of the Stones beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members’ solo projects.  We sure as heck hope you check out the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Keith Richard, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, and Mick Taylor.  Ronnie Wood you can find during the presentation of the Faces.  Sadly, we should have been clairvoyant and presented the music of Marianne Faithful, too.  Perhaps one day we will.

[iii] We are not sure as to when we will begin promoting the music of Electric Light Orchestra but we hope to do it soon just as we hope to do the music of Pink Floyd, Supertramp, Jethro Tull, and some other famous British rock bands.  Please remain vigilant for the day when we do.  We thank you.

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

[v] We look forward to doing the music of one of the great British invasion bands, the Dave Clark Five, at some point in the next 2-3 years.  Stick around for the day we do- you will be glad you did.

[vi] Many civilized Americans believe we need to construct a Devil’s Island of sorts and leave the pedophiles to contend with one another.  Others believe that as the liberal Democrats continue searching for new sources of cash infusions for their campaigns, they will try to legalize this blasphemous behavior.  Shame.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

52. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2022

2017 Tuesday: Along the coastline of Zawiya, Libya, the bodies of 87 African migrants wash ashore. They were the lucky ones as ISIS was selling other Sub-Saharan Africans as slaves in various marketplaces.

  63. 2014 Friday:  According to Brainy History, G-20 nations discuss ending stimulus efforts in economically advanced nations while planning ways to increase global trade and employment opportunities to achieve global GDP growth.
  64. 2015 Saturday: Also, according to Brainy History, Turkey sends troops to Syria to rescue 40 guards and relocate remains from the tomb of Suleiman Shah, which ISIS militants now surround; the international community recognizes the site as Turkish territory.
  65. 2016 Sunday: ISIS, a member of the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ carries out suicide bombings in Homs and Damascus, killing at least 140 people.  Next, airstrikes in Libya by U.S. warplanes on terrorist targets kill two Serbian hostages.  Elsewhere, a Michigan Uber driver is accused of murdering six people in a shooting. 
  66. 2017 Tuesday: Along the coastline of Zawiya, Libya, the bodies of 87 African migrants wash ashore.  They were the lucky ones as ISIS was selling other Sub-Saharan Africans as slaves in various marketplaces.  Meanwhile, to the shock of Democrats and leftists, President Donald J. Trump authorizes the Department of Homeland Security to commence rounding up and deporting illegal aliens wherever they uncover them, rather like the Operation Wetback of the late 1940s and early to mid-1950s.   A government’s first obligation is to ITS people, not illegal aliens.
  67. 2018 Wednesday: Famed televangelist Billy Graham, a man who provided counseling and support to every president from Harry S. Truman to George W. Bush, passed away in his sleep at age 99.  Elsewhere, following the now infamous St. Valentine’s Day Massacre 2018 in Tallahassee, Florida, gun control advocates, parents, teachers, students, and everyone else is demanding something be done to stop this stuff.  The shooter should never have been in school, but Obama era policies prevented educators from booting sickos and the police from behaving proactively rather reactively.  It is a horrible thing.  Meanwhile, students across the country stage walkouts in protest of such gun violence.
  68. 2019 Thursday: Multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Peter Tork, member of the Monkees[ix], passed away at age 77 on this date.  Meanwhile, a federal judge rules against U.S. Secretary of Labor Alex Acosta, accusing of him of having ‘broken the law’ back in 2008 when serial sexual abuser Jeffrey Epstein- good friend of Bill and Hillary Clinton, among others- when Acosta was the prosecutor in a sex case in which the wealthy business mogul was involved.  They gave the guy a sweetheart plea deal apparently.  You convict on what you can convict.  Epstein has been accused of mistreating numerous girls.
  69. 2020 Friday: On Fox News Channel, Democratic candidate Tom “Green Jeans” Steyer swears on the Bill Hemmer program that he ‘will be on the upcoming Tuesday night debate stage.’  He also promises that he is the only one who can defeat President Trump in November which is delusional.  His fellow Democrats want him and his best bud, “Tiny Mikey” Bloomberg as much as they want anal herpes.  We expect him either to drop out soon or go third party and contest for the Green Party (or Peace and Freedom Party) nomination.  Meanwhile, the Democrats are claiming that ‘Russia is going to help Trump steal the 2020 Election.’  Here we go again.  Question for Democrats: IF you so fear foreign involvement in U.S. presidential elections then why the f**k are you not demanding for ALL illegal aliens to be rounded up and deported immediately?  Finally, it looks like the jurors in the Harvey Weinstein multiple rape trial are going to find the POS guilty.  Elections have consequences, folks.  Had Hillary Rodham Clinton won in 2016, Harvey would still be raping young starlets.
  70. 2021 Sunday: Day 33 of the usurper Joe Biden Regime- will it ever end?  First, ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden says he has ‘no plans to invite Russia to upcoming G 7 talks; we bet he would invite the Chi-Coms if the other world powers would allow him.  Next, Joe Biden is considering Rahm “Dead Fish” Emanuel, former mayor of Chicago to be his ambassador to Japan.  However, outrage over this pathetic POS is growing on both sides of the aisle.  Still, we bet he gets the job.  In other ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden news, noted author and China expert Gordon Chang says, ‘the Chi-Coms have no respect for their stooge in the White House.’  We agree. 
  71. 2021 Sunday A: In other Chi-Com news, former NSA official Matthew Pottinger says there’s ‘plenty of evidence linking the Xi Jinping Bat Flu to both the Chi-Com military and to lax standards in the Wuhan Institute of Virology,’ which in our eyes, created the perfect storm of events to get Trump out of the White House.  Finally, the ‘Biden White House’ is talking to the Iranians, seeking to get detained Americans returned home.  (Probably going to require $1.5 billion in cash on pallets in the middle of the night, there, Joe, just like what you and Barack Obama did).
  72. 2021 Sunday B: New Mexico Democrat Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham finds herself in trouble, accused of using more $13,000 of the taxpayers’ money to buy groceries, alcohol, and on dry-cleaning bills.  Remove her from office.    Elsewhere, former White House adviser under President Donald J. Trump and immigration czar in the Trump administration- Stephen Miller- says, ‘Joe Biden’s immigration policy is madness.’  Speaking of this madness, RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel says, ‘Joe Biden is responsible for creating the crisis along the southern border.’  As if that’s not bad enough, Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security is dumping 25 illegal aliens per day into the San Diego, California, area as well into southern Texas in what appears to be a targeted dumping of unwanted illegal aliens who should be thrown back as soon as they are caught crossing the border.  And you don’t think the REPLACEMENT THEORY does not exist, that it’s another so-called ‘conspiracy theory.’  Bull crap.  Everything the liberals are doing, and which people recognize they’re doing, the scream “CONSPIRACY THEORY!”
  73. 2021 Sunday C: It’s official- President Donald J. Trump will be speaking at CPAC in Florida next week, his first speaking engagement since having the 2020 Presidential Election stolen from him (that’s right, I said it!).  Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, R-GA, says, ‘there’s no denying that the GOP belongs to Donald J. Trump.’  Period.   Meanwhile, Representative Ashley Hinson, R-IA, pushes back on the dimwit Bill Gates suggestion that Americans learn to eat synthetic beef.  Good.  Because anyone talking about ‘synthetic beef’ may as well be talking about ‘Soylent Green.’  Look for the movie.   
  74. 2021 Sunday D: Elsewhere, Representative Michael McCaul, R-TX, thanks ‘AOC for crossing the aisle and urging help to the suffering citizens of Texas.’   Finally, Congressman Steve Scalise, R-LA, says that ‘$60 billion already exists with which to reopen the nation’s schools.’  Why won’t the Dems use it?   Add to that the fact that Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson said that ‘Joe Biden missed an opportunity to work with the GOP on the stimulus with which to help the American people, beset by the Chinese Virus.’ 
  75. 2021 Sunday E: In Kentucky,  a black police officer is fired for having handed over the personal information on his fellow non-black police officers to Black Lives Matter communists.  Elsewhere, Camden County, Missouri, becomes the first Second Amendment sanctuary county in the state.  We want to see this spread to every freedom-loving part of the country.  Next, a NASA supply vessel on the way to the International Space Station bears the name Katherine Johnson named for one of the iconic mathematicians depicted in the film “Hidden Figures.”  She was the main black female whose calculations were spot on and enabled the United States to win the space race and to put men on the moon and to return them to Earth. 
  76. 2021 Sunday F: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 111,277,677 confirmed cases, +373,840, 2,464,390, confirmed deaths, +8,321, and 62,783,718 confirmed recoveries, +272,053.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 28,325,091 confirmed cases, up 64,375 from yesterday’s reporting, 502,493 confirmed deaths, UP 1,660, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- same as reported for nearly three-plus weeks now.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile moron.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 172,892 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, YOU claimed you had a plan to defeat the communist virus, what the hell are YOU going to do about it- sit on your ass and blame everything on Donald Trump.  Shame on you, ‘Usurper Joe,’ shame on you.
  77. 2021 Sunday G: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,527,454 confirmed cases, 49,167 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,778 confirmed cases, 430 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 336,819 confirmed cases, 4,886 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Minnesota: currently, they have 479,104 confirmed cases, 6,500 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 750,043 confirmed cases, 5,577 confirmed deaths, and 693,730 confirmed recoveries. 
  78. 2021 Sunday H: The Boy Scouts of America welcome their first class of female Eagle Scouts.  Next, United to stop flights on some Boeing 777 planes.   Meanwhile, since we no longer watch Saturday Night Live, we learn today from news sources that the comedy show won’t portray either feeble old Joe Biden or his VP Kamala Harris.  That figures.  Elsewhere, a new poll shows that tourism and the hospitality industries are going to have a slow rebound, one not expected to occur until sometime in the end of Kamala Harris,’ uh, Joe Biden’s first term in 2024. 
  79. 2022 Monday: Please, stick around for any updates…

  59. 2013 Tuesday: The U.S. Senate confirms Senator John F. Kerry to become the next secretary of state, replacing Hillary Clinton.  Everyone thought Mrs. Clinton was the worst U.S. secretary of state but the machinations and failures of the dolt following her made her appear as a blooming genius what with her Russian ‘reset button.’
  60. 2014 Wednesday: Brainy History reports that Shanghai and Hong Kong halt live poultry sales after the authorities report a third death resulting from to the H7N9 bird flu in Hong Kong; China has reported 19 deaths and 96 infections from the bird flu at the beginning of 2014.

  63. 2017 Sunday: In Orlando, Florida, a city hoping for an NFL team of its own, the lowest scoring Pro Bowl since 1998 occurs what with the AFC beating the NFC by a score of 20-13.  The NFC was driving in the final possession of regulation when Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins throws an interception.  Meanwhile, in Canada, a gunman enters a mosque in Quebec during evening prayers and lights up the people gathered there, killing at least five people and wounding others.  Police immediately go out looking for the shooter, eventually arrest two people, and let one go.  The other one is in custody.  Normally, things such as this don’t happen in ‘gun free Canada.’
  64. 2018 Monday:  The Deputy Director of the FBI- the corrupt and anti-Trumper Andrew McCabe resigns his post when in fact the 45th president fired his crooked ass.  Like his former boss, James Comey, he was in neck deep in the coup against President Trump and had to go.
  65. 2019 Tuesday: As things continue going south in Venezuela (no pun intended), the government of that authoritarian country seizes the bank accounts and properties of Juan Guaidó and prohibit him from leaving the country.  It’s tit for tat. Meanwhile, the U.S. hands over frozen Venezuelan assets to the true winner of election, Guaidó.  Meanwhile, in yet another dagger driven into President Trump by members of his administration, DNI Dan Coats contradicts his boss on North Korea, Iran, and ISIS.  ‘North Korea will never denuclearize,’ Iran is a fine country and ‘not working towards the bomb,’ and ISIS is ‘not on the run but still strong as ever.’  Wow.
  66. 2020 Wednesday: The first day of questions posed by Senate ‘jurors’ in the impeachment trial of President Donald J. Trump occurs.  The questions go to the chief justice of the United States Supreme Court- the Honorable John Roberts- who then directs counsels on either side to answer them.  This is a horribly boring period of this sham trial.  Meanwhile, the deadly coronavirus emanating out of communist China continues infecting and killing people throughout Asia and spreads to the United States.  Thank you, China, is this YOUR way of getting back at the Trump trade deal you had to sign?
  67. 2021 Friday: DAY TEN OF THE BIDEN REGIME- stick around to find out what’s going on today.  First of all, the Biden regime is deriding the 45th president’s COVID-19 relief plan while cannibalizing as much of it as it possibly can.  Good old ‘Plagiarist Joe.’  Next, Congressman Steve Scalise, R-LA, slams House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s constant demonization of the Republican Party.  He warns her it must stop.  Good luck with that.  Senile old Nancy is not always cognizant of what she is doing.  Moving on, Representative Matt Gaetz urges House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA, to hold a hearing on Congresswoman Liz Cheney, R-WY, as a leader in the House.  The woman has plummeted like a turd to the bottom of the pond once she voted to impeach former President Donald Trump.  For some inexplicable reason, Newsmax reports that Congress’ approval rating has jumped 10 percent but from what?  Bottom-of-the-barrel numbers.
  68. 2021 Friday A: The United Kingdom causes rancor with the Chi-Coms when the Brits offer the citizens of Hong Kong a pathway to British citizenship.  Wah, wah, wah, Chi-Coms.  STFU.  Meanwhile, the FBI says the pipe bombs ‘discovered’ at the RNC and DNC on January 6, 2021, the day the Antifa-led mob stormed Capitol Hill and overran it and its law enforcement like pot heads rampaging through a Krispy-Kreme donut shop, were planted the previous night.  The timeline also shows that the Capitol Hill Riots with the Antifa and BLM False Flag operation was planned long in advance, so President Trump bears NO responsibility for any of it.  Senator Dick Durbin- censure not looking so bad now, is it?  POS.  Speaking of drugs, Joe Biden is ending the Trump era program to combat the opioid epidemic.  Guess old Joe wants the Chi-Coms to make money off their illicit drug trade once again.  Thanks, Joe.  And people wonder why we say, “HE’S NOT OUR PRESIDENT.”  Speaking of Joe, he’s now staffing a commission to review the U.S. Supreme Court which means he is looking into PACKING IT. 
  69. 2021 Friday B: Here are the numbers for the COVID-19 global pandemic, the planet first: 101,981,446 confirmed cases, +610,190, 2,203,696, confirmed deaths, +16,037, and 56,302,010 confirmed recoveries (lower than reported last week), +377,525.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 26,156,392 confirmed cases, up 177,254 from yesterday’s reporting, 440,880 confirmed deaths, UP 4,271, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries same as the past five days or so.
  70. 2021 Friday C: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,272,349 confirmed cases, 39,578 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,070 confirmed cases, 407 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 312,042 confirmed cases, 4,328 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the United States: Puerto Rico- currently, they have 126,156 confirmed cases, 1,801 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 633,991 confirmed cases, 4,700 confirmed deaths, and 558,249 confirmed recoveries.   Speaking of the China Virus, the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine is 66-percent effective.  They are seeking FDA approval for emergency use of their product.
  71. 2021 Friday D: For a laugh, let’s look at the Chi-Coms’ numbers- they say they have 89,378 cases, +52, 4,636 confirmed deaths, and 82,940 confirmed recoveries, +70.  This, of course, is ALL BULLS**T.  When we had contacts in Hong Kong, they said times the numbers by 100, 150, or 200 times and you would get a somewhat closer picture.  Insect-eating scum. 
  72. 2021 Friday E:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 29,982.62, DOWN 620.74 points (-2.03%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,070.69, DOWN 266.46 points (-2.00%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,417.24, DOWN 73.14 points (-1.93%). We are beginning to think Joe Biden is the Antichrist.  The price of GOLD is $1,845.90 per troy oz., -1.40 (-0.08%) while the price of SILVER is $27.06 per troy ounce, +0.146 (+0.54%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,079.80 per troy oz, +0.60 (+0.06%) while the price of COPPER is $3.54 per pound, -0.0155 (-0.44%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,208.40 per troy oz, -113.90 (-4.90%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.14 per barrel, -0.06 (-0.11%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros while one-dollar U.S. = 6.42 Chi-Com yuan.  One-dollar U.S. = 0.000029 Bitcoin.  Next, one U.S. greenback = 75.75 Russian rubles.   
  73. 2021 Friday F: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1629: 04, 44, 58, 59, 70, and Mega 03.  With a pot of $25 million, out of 64,781 winning tickets, the highest winner 37 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $500 apiece.   Meanwhile, Hilton Valentine- original guitarist of the British invasion band the Animals[v] died at his home in Wallingford, Connecticut, on this date from unspecified causes at age 77.  See you on the other side, Hilton!  
  74. 2022 Saturday: Everyone knows the drill…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next release from guitar legend Richard Thompson was a four-CD box set: “Walking on a Wire” (August 26, 2009).  This colossal collection is a glorious collection of the guitar-slinger’s repertoire from the years.  One finds a nearly 60-page booklet that goes into great detail about the life and times of this phenomenal artist and priced at less than seventy-five bucks, what the heck can you lose?  If you have yet to introduce the music of this lesser-known guitar virtuosos, well this is a glorious (and economical) way in which one can do it.  We hope you rush out to your nearest seller of classic rock music and add it to your collection.  You will be extremely glad you did, that we guarantee.
