  47. 2002 Thursday: An attempted coup d’ teat takes place in Venezuela against thug president Hugo Chavez. More than half-a-million angry, pissed off Venezuelans marching through the streets.  You people should have overthrown this thug when you had the opportunity.
  48. 2003 Friday: U.S. troops begin rolling into Mosul, Iraq, on this date encountering minimal resistance.  Once the ‘shock and awe’ of U.S. hammer blows on Iraqi forces became overwhelming, many units began moving into the Round 2 strategy of melting into the population and initiating a guerilla war against the Coalition forces.  This would go on for several years.  Violent, bloody, and damned depressing.
  49. 2004 Sunday: It’s Easter Sunday and President George W. Bush is visiting U.S. troops at a base in Iraq, one that’s been hit hard by fighting and attacks.  The president acknowledges it’s been a harrowing week and professes NO idea as to when things might improve.  We probably should not have invaded the country, President Bush, it was a BIG FLIPPING mistake.  Still, we broke it, it’s ours.
  50. 2005 Monday: Hezbollah sends several drones into Israeli airspace, claiming to be conducting reconnaissance over the world’s only Jewish state in response to some border problems between Lebanon and Israel.  The Israeli Air Force takes to the skies and conducts numerous low-level air penetrations all across southern Lebanon.  The Hezbollah rats scurry back into their sewers.
  51. 2006 Tuesday: Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad announces that Iran has successfully enriched uranium.  Elsewhere, terror befalls tens of thousands of revelers celebrating the birth of the Prophet Muhammad as a suicide bomber sets off a device that blows 47 to meet the Prophet sooner than they planned and injures another 85-90 people.  What the hell is wrong with these people? 
  52. 2007 Wednesday: The U.S. Senate is considering a bill with which to allow more scientific research on stem cells.  However, President George W. Bush threatens a veto as he should.  Meanwhile, the chair of the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee (and presidential candidate) Joseph R. Biden says he backs the idea of using force in Darfur.  What is it about these Deep Staters who want to involve the United States in wars across the planet?  Enough is enough.  We are tied down in Iraq and Afghanistan.
  53. 2008 Friday: Somali pirates operating in the Gulf of Aden (goes on year after year) release 30 hostages captured aboard a French luxury yacht plying the area.  Folks, who the f**k wants to take a scenic trip through ‘pirate alley?’ (We heard once that the Saudis were considering filling a yacht with people who wanted to light the pirates up just for sport.  Now that is a boat upon which, we would love to sail!).
  54. 2009 Saturday: In the Gulf of Aden, the French navy does battle with Somali pirates who captured a yacht.  The sailors kill several of the thugs, rout the rest, and recover at least four hostages.  We believe it’s time for world powers to join forces and wipe out this scourge of scumbags.  This is the 21st century, folks.
  55. 2010 Sunday: Tehran announces that the Iranians will participate in the upcoming Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty talks in New York.  Of course, they are going to say and do anything necessary for them to continue keeping their nuclear weapons program a clandestine one.  Elsewhere, Poles around the world are commencing a week of mourning their leader, President Lech Kaczynski, who died along with several others in a mysterious plane crash outside Smolensk, Russia.
  56. 2011 Monday: In France, a law banning the wearing of the burqa and the hijab goes into effect on this day—screw the Muslims!  In Egypt in Cairo’s Tahrir Square, protesters demanding ousted President Hosni Mubarak face charges for all kinds of crimes and who were lit up the day before are back demanding all sorts of reforms be instituted to make the country more ‘Islamic.’
  57. 2012 Wednesday:  The North Korean Workers Party names Kin Jong Un First Secretary, with his father, Kim Jong IL as the party’s “eternal” General Secretary.  Elsewhere, rescuers reach nine trapped miners in a collapses copper mine in the southern part of Peru.
  58. 2013 Thursday: Malawi President Joyce Banda accuses singer Madonna of ‘bullying state officials’ after exaggerating the contributions of her charity and complaining about her treatment during a recent visit to the country.  Elsewhere, Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan’s offer of amnesty for Boko Haram thugs- if they’d straighten up and stop murdering and abducting people- is rejected by the terrorist group.
  59. 2014 Friday: Budget director Sylvia Mathews Burwell is nominated to replace Kathleen Sibelius as U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services.  Meanwhile, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducts Cat Stevens[iii], Nirvana[iv], KISS[v], Hall & Oates[vi], Linda Ronstadt[vii], and Peter Gabriel[viii] on this date.  Meanwhile, as Muslims and Christians kill one another in the Central African Republic, the United Nations agrees to send 12,000 blue helmets to keep the two groups from continuing the bloodshed.
  60. 2015 Saturday: According to Brainy History, U.S. President Barack Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro meet at the Summit of the Americas in Panama for talks aimed at thawing relations; the historic meeting marks the first interaction in decades between top leaders of the two nations.  President Obama loves communists and he loves jihadists, especially Shiite ones.
  61. 2016 Monday: In war-torn Yemen, a U.N.-backed ceasefire goes into effect between Saudi Arabia and Iranian-backed Houthi rebels.  Elsewhere, Goldman Sachs, seen as one of the big causes of the 2008 financial crisis that conveniently helped Barack Hussein Obama win the White House reached a settlement with the federal government for having sold ‘derivatives,’ packages of mortgages that contained numerous dogs which when everything went to hell took the entire economy down with it.  Anyhow, Goldman Sachs agreed to pay $5.06 billion to settle all claims.
  62. 2017 Tuesday: Famed rock-and-roll guitarist and co-leader of the J. Geils’ Band[ix], John Geils, died from natural causes on this date in Groton, Massachusetts, at age 71.  Elsewhere, as U.S. Navy assets approach the two Koreas, Kim Jong Un goes to the microphone banks to address his people (as well as the world) and threatens WAR with the United States if they don’t pull their forces back.  Elsewhere, a U.S. airstrike goes awry in Syria as American jets seeking to light up a bunch of ISIS scumbags instead kills 18 allied Syrian Democratic Forces troops.
  63. 2018 Wednesday: The Palestinians are upset that Israeli troops and a sniper who took out a Hamas thug got off without being in trouble.  Thus, they set off a bomb near some Israeli construction equipment which then leads the Israeli Defense Forces to light up some Hamas positions in the Gaza Strip.  What the hell is wrong with these people?   Meanwhile, other trouble-makers in the region- the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels- launch some rockets into Saudi Arabia one of which shows up in the skies over Riyadh but is taken down by Saudi air force jets.
  64. 2019 Thursday: Today, things ended for Julian Assange as British police forcibly removed him from the Ecuadoran embassy in London.   The United States wants him extradited so he can stand charges for his role in Wikileaks releasing loads of secret Iraq war documents.  Elsewhere, the son of a local sheriff in the great state of Louisiana undergoes arrest for having committed several acts of arson against historically black churches in the state.  Holden Matthews would eventually receive a sentence of 25 years in a federal prison with hate crimes attached.  POS.
  65. 2020 Saturday: The day before Easter Sunday, Christian churches around the United States are under statewide and local orders NOT to perform services thanks to the despicable virus engineered in communist China and dispatched around the world.  Around the world, there are 1,684,833 confirmed cases of the COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis with 102,136 confirmed deaths and 375,499 confirmed recoveries.   In the United States, Americans continue suffering thanks to our ‘friends’ in the People’s Republic of China what with 530,463 confirmed cases, 20,499 confirmed deaths, and 31,340 confirmed recoveries.  In order to fight this malignant plague, the Democratic Party wants to coopt the nation’s election systems and have everyone vote by mail.  What?
  66. 2021 Sunday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 135,869,704 confirmed cases, +839,540, 2,935,271  confirmed deaths, +14,734, and 77,284,566 confirmed recoveries, +508,538.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,397,113 confirmed cases, UP 48,882 from yesterday’s reporting, 567,591 confirmed deaths, UP 449, and 119,003,025 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.[i] 
  67. 2021 Sunday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 239,048 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.  
  68. 2021 Sunday 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: 3,696,791 confirmed cases, 60,334 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,124,233 confirmed cases, 34,021 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 30,956 confirmed cases, 471 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 377,979 confirmed cases, 5,373 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Oklahoma, home of the late great Bass Reeves, the true Lone Ranger: they have 442,805 confirmed cases, 6,691 confirmed deaths, but sadly, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.[ii] 
  69. 2021 Sunday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 835,933 confirmed cases, 6,296 confirmed deaths, and 825,579 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Kazakhstan, yet another loyal client state of Russia: 320,881 cases of the virus, 3,267 confirmed deaths and 284,034 confirmed recoveries.[iii]

  71. 2021 Sunday E: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE THREE 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 $3.932 per gallon, $2.839 in Florida, $3.725 in Hawaii, and $3.336 in Washington state.[v]    Let’s look at one other location- Georgia: $2.708.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,160,214,670,182 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[vi]  Cloward and Piven running amok.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

UFO came roaring back with an extremely creative album on February 27, 2012, the acclaimed “Seven Deadly.”  Joining vocalist Phill Mogg are longtime UFO veterans Andy Parker (drums), Paul Raymond (keyboards, vocals, and perhaps one of the hardest working musicians in all of rock), Vinnie Moore (guitars), and Peter Lehmann (bass).  Folks, all we can say is that many bands don’t age well but these guys- Christ, they have been around far longer than lots of other bands.  Other than the Rolling Stones who have the all-time record for longevity (must be because they sold their souls for rock-and-roll), UFO has been around far longer than Led Zeppelin, the Kinks, the Who, the Faces, and many, many others so what the heck are you waiting for?  Seek this one out and make it a part of your listening day.

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 580

97. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, APRIL 07, 2021 UPDATE A:

DAY SEVENTY-EIGHT OF THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION

“Congratulations to Arkansas lawmakers who overrode the veto of their governor who sought to allow misguided parents to destroy their mentally ill children via ‘transitioning them’ into something they’re not”

  • 2021 Wednesday: WOKE NEWS / WOKEISM / WOKIES / WOKE WOOSIES NEWS- Much to the horror of the WOKIES, Arkansas becomes the first state banning all hormonal and surgical treated for those claiming to be a gender different than what the Lord gave them at birth.  We believe these individuals should receive humane care in mental health facilities and if they continue believing they are something other than they are, they can do whatever they want to do at age 18.  Any parent who would destroy their child’s body on some misguided belief or stupid whim should be doing time in prison.  Period.   
  • 2021 Wednesday A: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE NEWS- Customs and Border Patrol reported today the arrests of MS-13 gangbanger thugs crossing the southern border.  Shoot them like the dogs they are.   Next, the Joe Biden administration is opening two new illegal alien holding pens near the southern border with Mexico.  Congressman Tom McClintock, R-CA 4th congressional district, told Newsmax today that ‘NO nation has ever survived an influx of illegal immigrants the way our country is experiencing.’  He is 100-percent correct.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump says he’s glad that the Biden administration is considering finishing the border wall but says he doubts that Joe Biden is making the decisions.
  • 2021 Wednesday B: COVID-19 NEWS I- A growing number of governors across the United States are making a stand against any suggestion of the Biden administration’s idea of forcing everyone to present COVID-19 vaccine passports to return to normal life.  This never happened when homos were running amok and HIV-AIDS was a true crisis so any suggestion we should have proof of vaccine is a big overstep for government.  We are not the flipping Chi-Coms.   It’s good that Joe Biden is facing major backlash against him and his administration for persisting in this stupidity.  Still, the old coot persists in telling Americans that ‘IF we want to celebrate the Fourth of July, we had better have proof of insurance.’  Wow.  A dictator…Meanwhile, medical professionals are blasting the Centers for Disease Control for being slow to update information regarding the coronavirus.
  • 2021 Wednesday C: COVID-19 NEWS II- Next, the Centers for Disease Control report that the dominant strain in the U.S. is now the United Kingdom variant.  Moving on, skin reactions reported by those who have taken either the AstraZeneca or the Moderna vaccines are said to be ‘nothing,’ ‘not dangerous,’ ‘don’t worry about them’ to which we say, “We have seen people with their skin peeling off, don’t lie to us and tell us it’s no flipping deal.”  We will one year before we take the ‘mark of the beast’ upon ourselves… Elsewhere, the University of Oxford is pausing a pediatric trial of the COVID-19 AstraZeneca vaccine.  No reason is reported for the stoppage.  Yes, we are curious.
  • 2021 Wednesday D: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS- The military contingent in Myanmar’s London Embassy has seized control of the facility and booted the ambassador out on the street.  London law enforcement has surrounded the building but cannot go inside as it’s Myanmar’s property.  Next, Qatar Airways is considering a major purchase of Boeing’s 777-X freighters with which to increase its air fleet.  Elsewhere, as calls grow around the world to boycott the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics, Joe Biden cannot bring himself to break with his masters in communist China.  (Note- former President Jimmy Carter can now rest easy as he is NO longer the worst president in U.S. history, Joe Flipping Biden is).
  • 2021 Wednesday E: NATIONAL NEWS I- the trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin continues into its 8th day.  Thugs across the country are threatening violence.  Folks, it’s time the rule of law is re-established and law and order are upheld.  People can protest but once you begin committing acts of violence, once you raise your arm to throw an accelerant, and once you begin raping, robbing, and looting, it is important that law enforcement shoot those people down.  If we return to the nation we were back in the 1950s and before, people could protest but violent scumbags did not run amok.  Remember: government’s first order of the day is to protect life and property.  Period.   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump blew Fake News Media reports that Congressman Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district, NEVER asked for a blanket pardon.’  Why would he?  He did nothing wrong.  
  • 2021 Wednesday F: NATIONAL NEWS II- U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer is urging progressives (communists) not to take drastic actions against the court and that packing the court would dilute its importance and its influence.  Will progressives listen?  We doubt it.  Next, Amazon.com billionaire Jeff Bezos says he’s ‘all in with the Joe Biden’s infrastructure bill and the subsequent tax hikes.’  Sure you are, Jeff, sure.  Next, New York- the Empire State- is nearing a deal to provide unemployment and COVID-19 relief to illegal aliens within their state at the cost of $2.1 billion.  What the hell is wrong with these people?   Meanwhile, North Las Vegas, Nevada, Mayor John Lee is leaving the Democratic Party to become a Republican. 
  • 2021 Wednesday G: ONGOING GEORGIA- PEACH STATE- UPROAR- Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, a political hack if one ever existed, has signed an executive order with which to try and mitigate the new election laws designed to improved voting in her state.   Meanwhile, enfeebled old Joe Biden continues celebrating companies and corporations pulling out of Georgia and encourages still more to do the same.  What a president.  Speaking of MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred’s decision to pull the All-Star Game out of Atlanta and relocate it to Colorado, Senator John Kennedy, R-LA, says ‘Manfred needs to buy a spine online.’  Amen.  Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, R-GA, says that ‘Joe Biden needs to smarten up’ so he knows of what he speaks.  Joe knows NOTHING.  The ever-stupid White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki says the ‘Georgia law is built atop a lie.’[i]
  • 2021 Wednesday H: NATIONAL NEWS III- President Donald J. Trump officially endorses Congressman Mo Brooks, R-AL 5th congressional district, in his race for U.S. Senate.  Next, Vice President Mike Pence has formed a new group- Advancing American Freedom Organization- with which to continue the Trump Miracle.  Elsewhere, Democrats in Maricopa County, Arizona, continue defying the state government’s demand for transparency in the 2020 Presidential and General Elections.  One-hundred-and-twelve days after the election, the Democrats continue trying to cover up the fact that they stole the elections, from President Trump and from Senator Martha McSally.  Speaking of Arizona, Governor Doug Ducey has signed a bill- H.B. 2111- that will make the Copper State a 2nd Amendment sanctuary state.  Next, Oregon Governor Kate Brown, DS, is threatening to use state law enforcement to eliminate ALL TRUMP SUPPORTERS within her state and seems to side with Antifa thugs and murderers.   Finally, Tennessee is pushing to re-establish the two-day waiting period for abortions.
  • 2021 Wednesday I: NATIONAL NEWS IV- Virginia Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax, a man with numerous sexual assault allegations lodged against him such as forcible sodomy, has compared himself to slain Emmett Till.  The POS lieutenant governor who only remains in his position because Governor Ralph Northam is a POS just as is Attorney General Mark Herring who has his own blackface problem and the next one in line to become governor.  Mr. Fairfax is seeking to become the next governor and honest news media people are beating him up over the allegations of rape lodged against him and he’s upset, he’s hurt, claiming he is being treated just like poor Emmett Till.  STFU.  Moving on, we learn today that the Joe Biden administration sent out more than 1.5 million COVID-19 relief checks, many of which went to people ineligible to receive them.  Elsewhere, noted legal scholar Jonathan Turley says that the ‘media failed to do its job on the Hunter Biden laptop story.’  Next, the Senate Dems find a way to sidestep the filibuster rule.
  • 2021 Wednesday J: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 132,456,676 confirmed cases, +863,496, 2,873,821  confirmed deaths, +17,189, and 75,221,481 confirmed recoveries, +542,061.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,056,277 confirmed cases, UP 131,008 from yesterday’s reporting, 561,775 confirmed deaths, UP 1,174, and 118,831,023 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.[ii]

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Famed guitarist Michael Schenker decided that he would record an album of songs that influenced him early on in his career and brought together a variety of musicians to help him knock out 13 amazing tunes.  “By Invitation Only” came out on June 25, 2011 and featured not only the blazing guitarist but a who’s who of rockers such as bassists Tony Franklin (The Firm), Tony Levin (Peter Gabriel), Jeff Pilson (Dokken, Dio, Foreigner), among others as well as drummers such as Mike Baird (Journey), Simon Wright (AC/DC, Dio), Aynsley Dunbar (Journey, Jefferson Starship), among others.  Most of the tunes are recorded as power trios with the exception of one in which, a saxophone solo was essential.  Say what you will but it appears that Mr. Schenker NEVER sleeps (must be some good stuff).  Seek him out and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

Trump wants to put a hold on any further monies from the United States going to the World Health Organization until Beijing and the WHO account for their actions in the wake of the Wuhan Virus, aka the Kung Flu, aka Wuhan Flu, aka coronavirus crisis.  The president also wants to get to the bottom of WHY more black Americans are falling ill to this insidious virus.  What did the Chinese engineer in their Wuhan laboratory?  Currently, at the time of this posting, there are 1,428,428 confirmed cases around the globe what with 300,198 confirmed recoveries and 82,020 confirmed deaths.  Thank you, People’s Republic of China!  Meanwhile, in the United States, there are 398,185 confirmed cases with 12,844 confirmed deaths.  It would appear that Plaquenil aka hydroxychloroquine is extremely promising so states and locales (ahem, New York state and New York City), allow doctors to prescribe it to their extremely ill patients.  What do you have to lose, Governor Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill Di Blasio?  Nothing!  Stop playing politics with the lives of people.   Finally, singer-songwriter John Prine dies from COVID-19 at age 73.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Famed guitarist Michael Schenker decided that he would record an album of songs that influenced him early on in his career and brought together a variety of musicians to help him knock out 13 amazing tunes.  “By Invitation Only” came out on June 25, 2011 and featured not only the blazing guitarist but a who’s who of rockers such as bassists Tony Franklin (The Firm), Tony Levin (Peter Gabriel), Jeff Pilson (Dokken, Dio, Foreigner), among others as well as drummers such as Mike Baird (Journey), Simon Wright (AC/DC, Dio), Aynsley Dunbar (Journey, Jefferson Starship), among others.  Most of the tunes are recorded as power trios with the exception of one in which, a saxophone solo was essential.  Say what you will but it appears that Mr. Schenker NEVER sleeps (must be some good stuff).  Seek him out and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The archivists of UFO at the band’s original label got a superb idea and released the crème de la crème of the group’s early days in 10 essential tracks- all remastered of course- entitled, “All the Hits and More- the Early Years” (December 22, 2010).  Back in the day, the band featured Phil Mogg (vocals), Mick Bolton (guitars), Pete Way (bass), and Andy Parker (drums and percussion) and you get the must-own tunes any diehard fan or newbie should own.  IF you have yet to introduce yourself to this phenomenal band, folks, this is a wonderful way in which you and your ears can get into the groove.  Granted, at Amazon the CD sells for around $25-50 depending upon where you might look but what the f**k?  When it comes to rock music, only buy the best and friends, UFO is among the top 20 greatest British rock bands.

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 582

95. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, APRIL 05, 2021 UPDATE A:

Easter Monday

Friends, our days of drinking Coca-Cola® and going to Major League Baseball games is over until businesses and sports leagues stop with WOKE politics- enough is f**king enough!

  • 2021 Monday: JOE BIDEN/JOE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION NEWS- The U.S. Department of the Interior under the watchful eye of the first Norwegian-Native American Secretary Debra Haaland, is creating a new unit with which to investigate missing Native Americans.  This is good.  Many Native Americans disappear or are harmed on reservations, typically by outsiders, so this is something that is long overdue.  Next, Joe Biden’s economic advisor Brian Deese says, ‘the economy has a long ways to go’ before it improves.  Under the previous president, the economy was vastly improved whereas the Biden administration is returning it to the death spiral it was in when Obama-Biden were in charge.  In other ‘Biden news,’ Dr. Jill Biden is being savaged for wearing fishnet stockings and looking like a ‘ho.’  Meanwhile, former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, RINO, says that ‘Joe Biden is lying to the American people’ on virtually everything.  We concur but it’s not going to help you become president one day, doughboy.
  • 2021 Monday A: JOE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION NEWS- U.S. Secretary of Energy Jennifer M. Granholm says that ‘Joe Biden will pass the infrastructure bill will pass IF the American people support it.’  We don’t.  Senator Roy Blunt, R-MO, says that the ‘infrastructure program pushed by the Biden administration would achieve bipartisan support IF it focused on infrastructure.’  Another critic of the administration’s plan is Senator Roger Wicker, R-MS, blasts Joe Biden over cutting out the 2017 tax cuts which is part of the new ‘infrastructure plan.’[i]  However, U.S. Transportation Secretary ‘Mayor Pete’ Buttigieg broke with his boss today when he said, “AOC’s infrastructure program is bolder than Joe Biden’s.’  Wow.  What’s up with that?   In other Biden administration news, U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen is calling for a global worldwide minimum tax on corporations so that they cannot relocate elsewhere in the world for a better deal. Wow.  (Note- Senator Joe Manchin, D-WV, says he opposes the corporate tax hikes in the infrastructure bill).
  • 2021 Monday B: FOREIGN NEWS/OVERSEAS NEWS I-  Michael Oren, noted author and an Israeli-American, says that the ‘People’s Republic of China is extending its reach into the Middle East’ and that the ‘United States should take note.’  Next, Egypt holds a BIG MUMMIES PARADE in which it trotted out nearly 30 mummies in specially equipped vehicles so as to stimulate renewed interest in tourism from abroad.  We would have loved to have seen that.  In other foreign news, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says it ‘appears that the United States is undergoing a (communist) Chinese-style ‘Cultural Revolution’ which was not good for the citizens of China back in the day.  We, ourselves, have said this on numerous occasions.  Finally, Iran rejects talks with the United States, demands feeble old Joe Biden lift all sanctions against the jihadist regime, and compensates all damages done to them by the U.S. and then, we can talk.  We say, “Nuke them!”
  • 2021 Monday C: NATIONAL NEWS- Since the pandemic, violent crime has been rising at astronomical numbers in the U.S.  The murder rate has shot up by 25-percent. Speaking of violent crime, another attack on Asian-Americans occurred in Oakland, California, yesterday when several BLACK thugs attacked an elderly Asian couple in front of their own home.[ii] In other news, Delta Airlines is busy rescheduling 100 scheduled flights due to staff shortages.  Yet another sign that things might be returning to normal.  Meanwhile, we now learn that a breach at Facebook back in 2019 exposed the personal info of more than 53 million of its users online.  Thank you, Mark Zuckerberg, you, and your Chinese wife, Priscilla Chan.
  • 2021 Monday D: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I- Over the course of a weekend, an 11-year-old girl lost her life in Florida during a street race.   Speaking of the Sunshine State, a toxic waste spill at the non-functioning Piney Point phosphate plant has forced the evacuation of at least 300 homes.  In other auto-related news, an ambulance rollover in the Empire State claimed the life of one person and injured several others.  Elsewhere, Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson now faces 21 allegations of sexual misconduct with sex workers.  Say what?
  • 2021 Monday E: SHOWBIZ AND ENTERTAINMENT NEWS- “Godzilla v. King Kong’ did very well in its first weekend bringing in $32 million.  Theaters are just reopening so this is a positive sign that things could return to normal.  In other showbiz news, imprisoned sexual deviate and film producer Harvey Weinstein is seeking a new trial in that the jury in his first one he believes was prejudiced against him.  It most likely was.
  • 2021 Monday F: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE- Governor Doug Ducey, RINO-AZ, says that the ‘Joe Biden White House is divorced from reality when it comes to what is happening along the border between our nation and Mexico.’[iii]  Next, “Kooky Kamala” Harris once again breaks into hysterical, jackass-like laughter when questioned about ‘affordable childcare’ and all the help being given to legions of illegal alien brats being housed in U.S. facilities.  This ditz never has the answers to any questions of import.  Senator John Barrasso, R-WY, says that when he visited the southern border, left-wing activists working within the care facilities holding illegal alien brats demanded he delete all photos on his phone which he claims he did not.  Finally, Governor Ron DeSantis backs his Attorney General Ashley Moody’s lawsuit filed against the Biden administration demanding it RESUME the deportations of criminal illegal aliens.[iv]
  • 2021 Monday G: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II- The American Civil Liberties Union, ACLU- the, warns Democrats against their push for COVID-19 passports when they don’t demand voter ID at election time.  Next, New York state lawmakers have proposed hefty tax increases on the wealthiest among them which would make the Empire State the highest tax state in the country.   Elsewhere, Rod J. Rosenstein says that ‘we should wait and see what information Special Counsel John Durham comes up with regarding Crossfire Hurricane.’  Meanwhile, DNC Chairman Jaime Harrison says that the ‘Democratic Party’s brand is broken, that the party is barely functioning.  It’s all about organize, organize, organize.’
  • 2021 Monday H: FOREIGN NEWS/OVERSEAS NEWS II- As Russian troops and armored units continue to amass along the eastern border of the Ukraine, Ukraine and NATO are going to hold joint military drills.  Many believe that Vladimir Putin- a man, who by the way, signed legislation into law today that will allow him to rule with an iron fist until 2036- is testing senile old Joe Biden to see how far he can push the old coot before the U.S. responds.  This is coming at a time when Russia is cementing its claim to many parts of the Arctic just as communist China, Iran, North Korea, and other nations are behaving aggressively to both the U.S. and to other nations around the globe.  We believe we are witnessing a new Axis alliance which will conquer the world unfolding before our very eyes.
  • 2021 Monday I: PEACH STATE HULLABALOO- Congresswoman Nancy Mace, R-SC 1st congressional district, calls out Major League Baseball and its Commissioner Rob Manfred’s hypocrisy over showing ID to vote in Georgia and MLB demanding people show ID when they pick up game tickets.  Meanwhile, as GOP officials in Georgia investigate rampant voter fraud in the 2020 Elections, election officials are unable to provide chain of custody documents for more than 400,000 ballots when all President Donald J. Trump ‘lost’ the state by was 12,000 votes.  No matter Democrats are wetting their pants.  Next, Georgia GOP officials told Coca-Cola® to get out of their state as they are another example of WOKEISM run amok.[v]  Elsewhere, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, blasts Commissioner Manfred over his hypocrisy when it comes to blasting Georgia while remaining mum on communist China.  After all, MLB is tight with the Chi-Com intelligence gathering app, Tencent.  (Note- Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, says he will not throw out the first pitch at the Texas Rangers baseball game over the MLB and its despicable actions).
  • 2021 Monday J: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III- Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee was trolling liberals by saying, he is now going to identify as Chinese to get preferential treatment.  Next, former Missouri Governor Eric Greitens, also a U.S. candidate, says he will uphold the Trump agenda.  Moving on, Senator Reverend Raphael Warnock, D-GA, had to remove a heretical ‘Christian’ tweet that irritated true believers and not Marxists like him.  F**k them and f**k him.  Speaking of Christianity, we saw amazing video of a Christian preacher in Canada throwing the cops out of the church- at least six or seven of them- who came to close down his services because there were more people there than the law would allow.  F**k Canada.[vi]  God bless you, pastor!
  • 2021 Monday K: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS IV- The Soros Group pledges $20 million to push the Biden agenda. Next, gun control advocates push the Biden administration to do more on guns.  Moving on, the U.S. Supreme Court of the United States ends the Twitter-President Donald J. Trump feud by saying it’s moot.   The court also passes on workplace religious bias cases.  Speaking of Twitter, after Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, sends out an Easter tweet in which, she says, “HE IS RISEN!  HAPPY EASTER!” Twitter suspends her.  Suspends her.  WTF?
  • 2021 Monday L: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 131,593,180 confirmed cases, +623,459, 2,856,632  confirmed deaths, +7,424, and 74,679,417 confirmed recoveries, +360,876.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,925,629 confirmed cases, up 40,862 from yesterday’s reporting, 560,601 confirmed deaths, UP 381, and 118,592,278 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] 
  • 2021 Monday M: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 232,088 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another one-to-two weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Michael Schenker Group roared into Japan 30 years after their first appearance there and recorded a live album as well as a DVD of the concert.  “The 30th Anniversary Concert- Live in Tokyo” hit record store shelves on October 19, 2010.  The band features the amazing Michael Schenker (guitars), Gary Barden (vocals), Neil Murray (bass), Simon Phillips (drums), and Wayne Findlay (keyboards/rhythm guitar/vocals).  There is no dispute that the band members of UFO and the subsequent side bands and endeavors are among the greatest veteran rock musicians on the globe.  These guys rock until they drop and even then continue rocking.  We love this album and we encourage everyone to visit whatever site it is you do so you can pick it up, add it to your collection, and enjoy for years- if not decades to come.  You will be glad you did.

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

Monday, April 05, 2021:

ENDNOTES:


[i] Political strategist Dick Morris says the entire thing is about collectivizing the American worker by forcing everyone to join labor unions.  Amen, Dick!

[ii] Once again, the Democrats play one component of the identity politics group against another so they can then send Asian-Americans (and Pacific Islanders) out into the streets demanding a STOP to Asian HATE.  Only problem with having members of the black community to commit your violent crimes is that unless they dress in whiteface, we know who they are and we know who’s directing them: DEMOCRATS.

[iii] Speaking of Arizona, the Democrat-controlled Fake News Media is blasting Arizona over its recount of all votes in the 2020 Presidential Election.  Hey, Dems, if you have nothing to hide, what the f**k are you frightened of? 

[iv] Speaking of Governor Ron DeSantis, CBS’ “60 Minutes” attempted to twist an interview done with him at a news conference by rearranging it to suit their agenda and their narrative.  Unluckily for them, the Florida governor had his people film the entire event so he could show the TRUTH.  Come on, Fake News Media, when are you going to learn your lessons.

[v] Right now, PepsiCo® stands to gain BIG unless, they, too, join the cavalcade of WOKEISM f**king up our country.

[vi] These flipping people are entering the Nazi-Fascist period in their political history when the power of the state supplants all other rights including worship services.  Canada is now an enemy of the United States and of free people everywhere.

The Michael Schenker Group roared into Japan 30 years after their first appearance there and recorded a live album as well as a DVD of the concert.  “The 30th Anniversary Concert- Live in Tokyo” hit record store shelves on October 19, 2010.  The band features the amazing Michael Schenker (guitars), Gary Barden (vocals), Neil Murray (bass), Simon Phillips (drums), and Wayne Findlay (keyboards/rhythm guitar/vocals).  There is no dispute that the band members of UFO and the subsequent side bands and endeavors are among the greatest veteran rock musicians on the globe.  These guys rock until they drop and even then continue rocking.  We love this album and we encourage everyone to visit whatever site it is you do so you can pick it up, add it to your collection, and enjoy for years- if not decades to come.  You will be glad you did.

  25. 1919 Friday: Allied troops continue fighting with White Russian forces to subdue the cancer of communism that is engulfing Russia, Eastern Europe, and even popping up in parts of eastern Germany where the authorities have their hands full.  The Germans are in dire straits, being blamed for the entire war when they were not the ones who started it; no, they came to the aid of their Austro-Hungarian allies and the rest is history as they say.

  56. 2005 Monday: Palestinians in the West Bank are going berserk today when word has it that Israel is going to begin dumping 10,000 tons of garbage in landfills in the area.  Of course, the Palestinians claim it’s going to foul their water supply and that it’s a breach of international treaties and the like.  We say, ‘shut up, when you stop treating your citizens like garbage, urging them to commit acts of jihad, maybe the Israelis won’t treat YOU like garbage.’  (Note- Moses Scharbug III is responsible for this opinion).  Elsewhere, insurgents in Iraq launch an attack on Abu Ghraib prison to free their jihadist brethren injuring American and Iraqi troops and jailers.  The guards are able to fight the scumbags off.

  60. 2009 Saturday: Costa Rica, Malaysia, and the Philippines find themselves in trouble today.  You ask why?  Well, the Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development blacklists them for being tax havens where the wealthy can hide their money.  What is wrong with that:  We all want to be able to do that… elsewhere, in North Waziristan, Pakistan, a U.S. drone strike whacks 13 jihadists convening with one another.  Yikes.
  61. 2010 Sunday: In the mine rescue in Shanxi, China, rescuers pull out 114 miners after pulling out the other 39 or so the previous day.  These poor souls have been trapped down there for more than a week so God bless them for rescuing these poor workers.  Elsewhere, the war in Iraq continues to rage as Islamist thugs set off simultaneous car bombs outside the German, Iranian, and Egyptian embassies.  Many people on the street are killed or injured.
  62. 2011 Monday: Reports claim that China has successfully modified cows to produce ‘human milk’.  People- does this not scare the living f**k out of you?  What the hell is this communist hellhole doing?  Enough is enough.  Meanwhile, the Israelis have their hands full with the Arab Spring as the Palestinians are causing havoc along the border with Gaza and their country.  Israeli warplanes are crisscrossing Palestinian airspace letting them know that if they step out of line, they are going to light them up.
  63. 2012 Wednesday: The first deployment of U.S. Marines arrives in Australia’s city of Darwin in the Northern Territory.   Elsewhere- we hate to say this, some nations were better off under colonialism– a suicide bomber attacks the National Theater in the Somali capital of Mogadishu while a ceremony was underway killing at least 10 people and wounding God knows how many others.  Fascist Italy, please come back!

  65. 2014 Friday:  The 16,480-foot Tungurahua volcano erupts twice; the volcano is located about 90 miles south of Quito in Ecuador.  Elsewhere, in a smart move, the South Korean military test fires some ballistic missiles that they hope with some improvements will be able to hit any target in the territory of their northern neighbor, North Korea.  Meanwhile, in West Africa, the rampaging Ebola epidemic has killed at least 90 people in Guinea and Liberia and now the first case has appeared in Mali.
  66. 2015 Saturday: Syrian and other Middle Eastern refugees continue to flood across the Mediterranean with the Italian navy rescuing 1,500 over the past 24 hours.  The only way to halt this insanity is for the Europeans to begin sinking the refugee vessels.  Meanwhile, the United States Army in the Obama era (it would have to be) is probing allegations that its members committed sexual assaults while deployed there between 2003-2007.  Ah, the Bush-Cheney years, that’s Barack Hussein Obama for you.
  67. 2016 Monday: Vietnam says, ‘enough is enough’ when it comes to Chi-Com intrusions into their fishing waters with their ‘fishing fleets’ which in reality, are military operations.  Vietnamese naval and marine assets board this ship and then take it under tow back to one of their ports.  Of course, Beijing starts making all manner of threats.  In the 78th NCAA Men’s National Basketball Championship, Villanova defeats North Carolina by a final score of 77-74. 
  68. 2017 Tuesday: Syrian government forces launch a chemical weapons attack on Khan Shaykhun resulting in at least 80 civilian deaths and countless others injured.  President Barack Obama had warned Bashar al-Assad that ‘if he crossed the red line and used chemical weapons, there would be hell to pay.’  No hell to pay until Donald J. Trump became president.  Meanwhile, according to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Chinese retail giant Alibaba becomes the world’s largest retailer.  You go, China, you go. 
  69. 2018 Wednesday: Since the U.S. Congress won’t act to do something on the U.S.-Mexico border, President Donald J. Trump grasps the bull by the balls and sends the U.S. National Guard to aid struggling Customs and Border Patrol officers attempting to deal with one wave after another of illegal alien invaders.  Of course, the 45th president suffers all manner of criticism for attempting to halt Democrats AND RINO Republicans’ beloved illegal aliens.  Democrats want voters and RINOs like cheap labor.  We say, “Militarize the southern border with minefields, antivehicle, antipersonnel, anti-boat obstacles, a massive wall, artillery positions, and even seed the Rio Grande with alligator pups.  When the latter grow up, they will patrol the river…
  70. 2019 Thursday: The Church of Latter-Day Saints- aka the Mormon Church- promises to roll back anti-LGBTQIA+ policies which include not baptizing the children of gay parents.  Bowed to pressure, did you?  What a shame.  Meanwhile, the governor of Guam- Lourdes “Lou” Leon Guerrero, Democrat, signs a bill permitting for the recreational use of marijuana.  Elsewhere, in the aftermath of the Christchurch mosque massacres, both New Zealand and Australia pass laws prohibiting the posting of violent content online.  If such content is posted, it must be removed immediately or the service providers must face the consequences.
  71. 2020 Saturday: The Wuhan Virus- straight out of Wuhan, China- continues claiming lives around the world and ruining much of the global economy.  Although Beijing continues to claim that things are ‘looking really great in China,’ everyone knows this is little more than propaganda put forth by their state-run media.  Shame on them.  Current figures for today are more than one million confirmed cases what with more than 64,000 confirmed deaths worldwide.  In the United States, there are 312,076 confirmed U.S. cases and 8,496 confirmed deaths.  When this crisis ends, the world will hold the communist government of China accountable and as Chef Goldie McNamara has said, President Donald J. Trump should demand a return to the Two-China Policy, of recognizing the equality of Nationalist aka Free China as a separate entity from the People’s Republic of (Communist China).
  72. 2021 Sunday: HAPPY EASTER!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Michael Schenker Group released a 4-CD retrospective live album featuring four complete shows recorded in the early 1980s when he had just formed his solo band. “Walk the Stage- the Official Bootleg Box Set” came out on May 30, 2009.  Joining the legendary German guitarist are well-known and much beloved members of his solo band: vocalist Gary Barden, Chris Glen (bass), Andy Nye and Paul Raymond (keyboards), and Ted McKenna and Cozy Powell (drums).  Always a wild rocker, Schenker puts on one hell of a great show and these four shows encapsulated on four discs (plus a fifth- a DVD)- albeit five-star bootleg quality- are well worth whatever price eBay might be charging for it, which at the time of this writing was running around $157.00.  We hope you will seek this one out because the man and his band have been with us for a long, long time.  You will enjoy this album so please, seek it out wherever you shop for the best in rock music- you can thank us later.

  59. 2015 Thursday: After being lost at sea for 66 days, rescuers find 37-year-old South Carolina man, Louis Jordan.  He had gone sailing in an antique sailing boat, which capsized and to which, he clung.  He survived on rainwater and fish he managed to catch while being adrift.  Elsewhere, at the Garissa University in Kenya, members of the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam, kill 140 people and wound countless others.  Worthless scumbags.
  60. 2016 Saturday: As the migrant crisis continues to ravage Europe (thanks to Germany’s Angela Merkel welcoming illegal immigrants to labor in the Fatherland’s factories), Austria says, ‘enough is enough’ and tells Italy that they are going to deploy troops on their mutual border because they don’t want any more Muslim migrants and refugees tramping through their country from their southern neighbor.  Who can blame them?   They intend to put troops in the Brenner Pass.  Just like World War I, Austrian and Italian friction.  Some issues never mend…
  61. 2017 Sunday: A custodian and several confederates at the Muslim shrine at Sargodha, Pakistan, takes the lives of 20 and leaves numerous others injured.  Thank you, “religion of peace.”  Elsewhere, media is under attack in Mexico and in Ciudad Juarez, the fabled newspaper Norte, publishes its final print edition seeing as how things are flipping crazy in that part of the country.
  62. 2018 Monday: In the 80th NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship Game, Villanova whips Michigan 79-62.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump lambastes the Chi-Coms for possessing the chutzpah to put retaliatory tariffs of up to 25-percent on 128 American products including American wines and pork products.  This is in response to the U.S. having slapped tariffs onto Chinese imports of both steel and aluminum, two poorly made Chi-Com products they have habitually dumped into the U.S. sans any blowback- until now.
  63. 2019 Tuesday: Climatologists claim that Canada is warming at twice the rate of the rest of the world, increasing 2.3% in the northern environs of the country.  Green New Deal lovers are dancing in the streets at the news.  Meanwhile, NASA lays out plans to return to the moon in 2024 and to put astronauts on Martian soil by 2033.  Meanwhile, Google +, a highly popular social media app (although Google says different) begins deleting its user accounts.  People had wonderful sites in perhaps one of the best social media platforms but Google- since they blew the 2016 Presidential Election notified its users in late 2018 that it was going to shut down the site due to low user activity and vulnerabilities that- if we are to believe them- were too difficult to fix.  They were too LAZY to fix them IF they existed.  Google shut down nothing else…scumbags.[viii]  
  64. 2020 Thursday: COVID-19 continues running amok around the world.  The Democratic Party has postponed its 2020 Convention until mid-August with the GOP following them on August 24 through the 27th.   In the United States, we currently have 226,300 confirmed cases with many more to be sure plus about 5,300 confirmed deaths.  The Guardian claims there are more than 750,000 confirmed cases worldwide with the death toll skyrocketing to over 36,000.  Unemployment numbers for the previous week double the prior week by coming in at 6.6 million new unemployment claims.  Some economists project as many as 20 million additional unemployed by the time we hit May.  Cloward and Piven would be delighted.  Meanwhile, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announces he will go back to the well in China so he can buy some of their top-of-the-line ventilators.  Does no one ever learn?  Food banks in the United States report a 92% jump in people seeking food thanks to the Wuhan Virus.   On a lighter note, Egypt reports a spike in ISIS attacks in the northern Sinai.  We say, “Crucify them!”
  65. 2021 Friday: YOU know the drill.  Let’s hope it’s not a heavy news day…

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 586

91. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, APRIL 01, 2021 UPDATE A:

DAY SEVENTY-TWO OF THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION

Fifth Day of Passover / Holy Thursday

“Folks, dimwits like AOC reinforce the logical idea that to serve in the U.S. Congress, first, you must pass an I.Q. Test.  Baby Evita is crazy-stupid!”

  • 2021 Thursday: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE- A new poll shows that 59-percent of the GOP’s voters do not approve of more gun control laws.  Meanwhile, Senator Tom Cotton, R-AK, said today that ‘Joe Biden’s border crisis is WORSE that a crisis, it’s sheer insanity.’  We concur.  Even federal officials are nonplussed over the (lack of) Biden border plan with which to distribute illegal alien brats across the country.[i]   Elsewhere, Congressmen John Katko, R-NY 24th congressional district, and Henry Cuellar, D-TX 28th congressional district, have authored a bipartisan bill with which to bring sanity back to the southern border.  Moving on, Representative Jodey Arrington, R-TX 19th congressional district, says that the LEFT puts the fear of God (well, in the case of Democrats- Satan) into Joe Biden which prevents him from owning up to HIS border crisis.
  • 2021 Thursday A: FOREIGN NEWS/OVERSEAS NEWS- A recent report shows that the scumbag Iranians are increasing uranium enrichment in their underground lairs more than the law permits.  We say, “Nuke them!  Now!”  Elsewhere, former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says his major regret is that the administration was unable to get North Korea to give up its nukes.  It is what it is, Mike.  Next, ahead of upcoming OPEC plus meetings, the U.S. and Saudi Arabia are discussing energy affordability but then, the U.S. says it’s going to minimize the number of U.S. military deployments to the Middle East to help the Saudis fight the Iranian-backed Houthi scum in Yemen.  Meanwhile, the Russians are moving armored and supply units via train towards the eastern Ukraine.  With muddled Old Joe Biden in office, WAR is coming soon.  We predicted this months ago.[ii]  Finally, a U.S. Air Force general warns that Russian activity off the coast of Alaska is increasing at a kinetic pace.  NOT GOOD.
  • 2021 Thursday B: SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS / GUNS- Like always, the Democrats are pushing for more and more restrictions on firearms.  Good luck with that.  The FBI reports that the month of March 2021 saw the highest number of gun background checks in the U.S. ever what with 4.7 million new requests.  Wow.  Awesome.[iii]   Speaking of guns, yesterday, we had yet another mass shooting under the Biden administration, this one in California in which a shooter killed four people including a 9-year-old kid.  Joe, WTF, dude?
  • 2021 Thursday C: ECONOMIC NEWS- a recent report shows that factory activity is expanding at its highest pace since 1983.  People must be thinking President Donald J. Trump is coming back.  Meanwhile, the Biden administration allowed a Trump-era rule to lapse and this one was on the number of H-1B Visas handed out to foreign tech workers.  Americans trained to do these jobs can return to drawing unemployment checks because half of India is returning to the U.S.  Joe, again, WTF?  Elsewhere, last week, 719,000 new claims for unemployment insurance benefits were filed.  This is down yet again.  In other economic news, corporate tenants are looking to offload expensive office space now that millions of Americans can work from home.
  • 2021 Thursday D: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I- A new report suggests that New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Gov, aka the Gropin’ Gov’s $4 million book on the AMAZING job he did with the ‘Chi-Vi’ (yeah, right) was written and edited by the Lov Gov’s staffers.  We wonder, did the Gropin’ Gov share any of his money with them?  Moving on, the U.S. Supreme Court gave the Federal Communications Commission the go-ahead to loosen rules on media companies ownership.  Meanwhile, Colorado is becoming the latest state to weigh in on its sports teams having Native American mascots.  Okay.  Elsewhere, U.S. airlines passengers fell by 60-percent in 2020 (thanks to the Chi-Coms) while gun seizures in the United States are at an all-time high.  Finally, American Jews report a major spike in Antisemitism, especially online.    
  • 2021 Thursday E: BIDEN ADMINISTRATION NEWS I- Joe Biden condemns the Texas Rangers baseball team using the harshest language (for him) over their opening the ballpark in Arlington, Texas, to FULL CAPACITY!  Awesome.  Life is returning to normal in civilized places.  Next, the Biden infrastructure plan is to RAISE corporate taxes which has led Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell to label it a ‘liberal wish list.’  What with growing pushback across the country to this ignorant ‘plan,’ Joe Biden is demanding his Cabinet ‘go out and begin promoting the $2 trillion give-away to liberal causes.’[iv]  Finally, for some reason known only to God Almighty, Joe Biden is sending $125 million to the frigging Palestinians.  WTF?  (Note- the Senate GOP is BEGGING Joe Biden to keep jobs in America, not send them overseas which always seems to be Joe’s way).
  • 2021 Thursday F: COVID-19 NEWS- Pfizer reports that after six months, it’s shots for the coronavirus remain 91-percent effective.  As long as it’s not that skin-peeling, Johnson & Johnson crap, we’re good.  Meanwhile, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, presented a new bill, “The Fire Fauci Act.”  Everyone is sick of the AMAZING Dr. “Tiny Tony” Fauci.  This man has lied and spread so much misinformation that it’s high time this guy was booted out on his butt.  He’s a bum.  
  • 2021 Thursday G: POLITICAL CORRECTNESS/WOKE NEWS/MORON NEWS- Governor Brian Kemp of Georgia is firing back at befuddled Old Joe Biden’s demand that the Major League Baseball All-Star Game be pulled from Atlanta, due to the new Voting Rights Bill in the Peach State.  ‘Ridiculous,’ says the man sitting in overweight Stacey Abrams’ seat (yeah, right, LOL).  Next, Bud Light pulled a fast one on the American people (after all, it’s April Fool’s Day) by showing photos of its new pizza-flavored seltzer.  Yuck (but of course, young people are stupid and like all manner of stupid stuff).   Moving on, incredibly unattractive and terribly stupid Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Baby Evita, aka AOC, aka “The Fly,” aka Sandy Cortez (her birth name) is upping the ante on Joe Biden’s infrastructure bill.[v]  She wants a $10 trillion infrastructure bill.  What, is this f***ing monopoly money?  Finally, the Star Wars franchise is going to have new trans/nonbinary characters.  Ah, aren’t you all WOKE?  Dumb asses.
  • 2021 Thursday H: FOREIGN NEWS/OVERSEAS NEWS II- Iran and other world powers are discussing the re-entry of the United States into the Iran Nuclear Deal, aka the JCPOA.  Wow.  Thanks, Joe.  Elsewhere, BIG TECH guy Tim Cook blasts Georgia for its new voting rights law while remaining entirely silent on Uighur concentration camps in Xinjiang Province.  That’s a BIG CORPORATE head for you, sucking up to Beijing while blasting fellow Americans.   Speaking of the Chi-Coms, seven pro-democracy advocates in Hong Kong have just been convicted in a ‘Chi-Com court’ for daring to defend the deal the Chi-Coms promised to observe- a 50-year-transition.  That’s communists for you.  Next, last night Tucker Carlson reported on Canada’s INTERNMENT HOTELS where all Canadian citizens exiting airplanes in that country are whisked off to internment centers where they are held for three days- or until repeated COVID-19 tests clear them (still, after three days)- before being released.  Even worse, the internees pay for their own room and board which according to Mr. Carlson sees little food and even less water provided to the inmates.  Even worse, the doors don’t lock and there have been reports of sexual assaults occurring in the middle of the night.  This is Canada? 
  • 2021 Thursday I: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II-  Angry Los Angeles County residents are suing the L.A. County Teachers’ Union as well as the Los Angeles Unified School District for NOT holding in-person classes for the kids.  (Note- we look forward to the disciplinary problems the teachers are going to face when schools reopen.  Teachers are going to get their asses beat and even murdered by out of control sociopathic students.  Serves them right).  Next, Lara Trump says, ‘it’s outrageous’ that her interview with her father-in-law was banned from Facebook and Instagram.  Do what we did- we closed our social media accounts with the exception of Lilah’s Twitter account.  Elsewhere, Governor Greg Gianforte, R-MT, signed a bill into law in his state that prohibits SANCTUARY CITIES and demands that ALL law enforcement cooperate with federal law enforcement officers and agencies.  Finally, a report on the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021- the Capitol Hill Riots, the ones in which, Antifa and Black Lives Matter human fecal matter infiltrated peaceful Trump supporters and carried out an incursion into the Capitol says that the majority of the blame falls on D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser’s ‘police forces being unprepared.’  There you go.
  • 2021 Thursday J: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 129,456,315 confirmed cases, +1034,384, 2,825,805  confirmed deaths, +18,711, and 73,370,628 confirmed recoveries, +510,126.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,731,414 confirmed cases, up 117,822 from yesterday’s reporting, 558,213 confirmed deaths, UP 1,726, and 118,438,310 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.[vi] 
  • 2021 Thursday K: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 231,003 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another one-to-two weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  
  • 2021 Thursday L: 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: 3,669,422 confirmed cases, 59,304 confirmed deaths (less than yesterday’s), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,057,727 confirmed cases, 33,424 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 29,779 confirmed cases, 460 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 366,949 confirmed cases, 5,309 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Indian, the home of U.S. Transportation Secretary “Mayor Pete” Buttigieg’s favorite bath house: currently, they have 691,001 confirmed cases, 13,048 confirmed deaths, but sadly, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 833,456 confirmed cases, 6,220 confirmed deaths, and 820,703 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).   Let’s look at one other country- Japan, once the proud home of the Samurai (we need them to return): 474,773 cases of the virus, 9,162 confirmed deaths and 446,416 confirmed recoveries.[vii]    
  • 2021 Thursday M:   STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,153.21, UP 171.66 points (+0.52%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,480.11, UP 233.24 points (+1.76%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,019.87, UP 46.98 points (+1.18%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $61.45 per barrel, +2.02 (+3.40%).  The price of GOLD is $1,728.40 per troy oz., +19.80 (+1.16%) while the price of SILVER is $24.95 per troy ounce, +0.50 (+2.06%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,208.60 per troy oz, +19.60 (+1.65%) while the price of COPPER is $3.99 per pound, +0.01 (+0.19%).[viii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,669.50 per troy oz, +44.50 (+1.70%).[ix] The price of RHODIUM is $26,700.00 per troy oz., +500.00 (+1.91%).[x]    Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.57 Chinese yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.27.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.   In Botswana Pula, one greenback equals 10.98.[xi]  
  • 2021 Thursday N: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE THREE 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 $3.906 per gallon, $2.856 in Florida, $3.689 in Hawaii, and $3.330 in Washington state.[xii]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,121,036,365,830 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xiii]  Cloward and Piven running amok.

TODAY IN HISTORY, THURSDAY APRIL 01, 2021 UPDATE A

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

Thursday, April 01, 2021:

ENDNOTES:


[i] Chef Lilah Paulikovich in Hawaii reports that the first planeload of illegal alien minors arrived at Honolulu’s airport the other day.  In many places, foster care children are getting booted onto the streets so illegal alien snots can take their place.  Folks, what the Democrats are doing with illegal aliens is the same thing they did with black slaves in the Old South prior to the Civil War.  The Democrats are always on the wrong side of history, fighting to protect the evil institution of slavery, in this case, the economic low-wage slavery of illegal aliens.

[ii] Last year we predicted an alliance of communist China, Russia, Iran, and probably some lesser members such as Venezuela, Cuba, North Korea, and others and that they would launch various actions in their ‘neck of the woods’ because with Joe Biden in the White House, folks, there isn’t going to be a better time to launch attacks around the world, rather like the Axis during World War II.  It’s coming. 

[iii] Virtually everyone- and we mean everyone- here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM has gone out- with family members- and added guns, accessories, and ammunition like there’s no tomorrow.  F*** the Democrats.

[iv] Yet, “Cocaine Mitch” is praising Joe Biden while slamming his administration.  That’s the way, Mitch, that’s the way to play BOTH SIDES of the fence. 

[v] House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy says that ‘Joe Biden’s absurd $2 trillion ‘infrastructure bill’ is no joke.  We have to stop this crap.

90. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, MARCH 31, 2021

70. 2019 Sunday: So many illegal aliens are attempting to storm the United States that the Trump administration has threatened to close the border with Mexico. The American people want to know, when will there be enough ‘invaders’ for the ruling class to understand this and to then authorize the use of deadly force? We cannot wait until the nation has been toppled via the sheer numbers of illegals seeking entry to the country. Mow them down!

  25. 1944 Friday: German ally Hungary orders its Jews to wear yellow stars beginning April 5, so its police forces and the Nazis can find them.  Meanwhile, future guitarist with Mott the Hoople[iii] and Bad Company[iv]—Mick Ralphs—was born in in Stoke Lacy, Herefordshire, England on this date.  Elsewhere, in Alexandria, Virginia, future U.S. Senator Angus King is born.  A future ‘independent’ (a reliable Democrat vote), he would enter the world’s greatest deliberative body on January 03, 2013 representing Maine.  Meanwhile, in the Pacific Theater, U.S. air assets are pounding Japanese positions on the island of Palau ahead of an invasion to drive them out and retake the strategic island.

  33. 1958 Monday: The Chess record label released “Johnny B. Goode” by Chuck Berry[vii] on this date.
  34. 1959 Tuesday: The Dalai Lama flees Communist China and receives political asylum in neighboring India.  The communists claim that Tibet belongs to them but Tibet does not, it’s been an independent kingdom for all time.  The communists are invading the country to subjugate it, it’s people, and to provide lebensraum for its people.  Wait, isn’t that what the Nazis called their land-grabs?  Living room for their people?  Funny how history tends to repeat itself…
  35. 1960 Thursday: Future guitarist with the British band, the Clash[viii]—Vince White—is born in London, England, on this date.
  36. 1962 Saturday: The 91st U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Charles Evans Whittaker left the court on this date.  A Republican, President Dwight D.

  43. 1975 Tuesday: After a record 20 seasons on CBS-TV, “Gunsmoke” ended its run with its final first-run episode, “The Sharecroppers.”  This was perhaps one of the all-time greatest TV westerns but now with all the WOKE stupidity f***ing up the country, it would probably be deemed RACIST.  F*** them.

  68. 2017 Friday: New York City Mayor Bill Di Blasio says he is ‘developing a plan to close the infamous Rikers Island New York Police Department jail within a decade.’  That will be the day.   Elsewhere, at a meeting of NATO members, the Germans say it’s ‘unrealistic for them to spend 2-percent of their GDP on military assets and equipment.’  Wow.
  69. 2018 Saturday:  President Donald J. Trump’s first secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, found himself fired today.  He served from 02-01-2017 to 03-31-2018.  This pretentious fool called his boss a “moron,’ which is one of the major reasons he got canned.  He was actively working against the president from within the State Department.
  70. 2019 Sunday: So many illegal aliens are attempting to storm the United States that the Trump administration has threatened to close the border with Mexico.  The American people want to know, when will there be enough ‘invaders’ for the ruling class to understand this and to then authorize the use of deadly force?  We cannot wait until the nation has been toppled via the sheer numbers of illegals seeking entry to the country.  Shoot them down!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Waysted returned on April 30, 2008, with the album, “The Harsh Reality.”  We have the great Pete Way on bass and vocals, Finn Moore on vocals, Chris George (guitars), and Paul Haslin handle the percussion duties.  Fans of both Waysted and Pete Way love this album, seeing it as among the best albums the Waysted boys have ever recorded.  We tend to agree and recommend that everyone rush out and give this album a good listen, it’s that good and worth every penny anyone wants for it.  Some things you cannot fake and the intensity and the vigor encapsulated on this album will make anyone lifelong fans of the rockers that roared out of the 1960s and 1970s and will cause them to toss the modern music into the crapper.  Search for it- you’ll love it but folks- look to eBay or somewhere else because Amazon.com wants nearly a grand- $1,000- for this album and friends, NO album is worth that kind of money unless it’s a massive collection of Faces bootleg shows.

TODAY IN HISTORY, WEDNESDAY MARCH 31, 2021

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

Wednesday, March 31, 2021:

ENDNOTES:


[i] Observed in Arizona, California, Colorado, Michigan, New Mexico, Nevada, Texas, Utah, Washington, and Wisconsin.

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

[iii] We promoted the music of Spooky Tooth, Mott the Hoople, and Widowmaker- among other interconnected bands beginning on Friday, 25-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We hope you will check out this collection of great rock music.  Even the worst albums among them beats the crap out of any bull crap music one hears today.

[iv] See previous footnote.

[v] We are not sure when we will present the music of Supertramp but we hope to do it within the next year or so.  You will not want to miss this group, that we can tell you.

[vi] We are not sure when AC/DC will be in the works but you bet they will be at some point, possibly in 2027-2028.

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

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

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

[x] We hope to promote the music of the Doobie Brothers sometime before 2030.  We hope you will remain vigilant for the day when we do.
