  71. 2020 Thursday: An amazing scene occurred today in the White House Press Room as reporters- including John Roberts of Fox News Channel- attempted to get White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany to voice that “Donald Trump renounces white supremacism.” She provided numerous examples going back years in which Mr. Trump, both as private citizen and as president of the United States, blasted the notion.  Reporters never will ask “Pro-China Joe” Biden to renounce Antifa and Black Lives Matter nor do they ask him to denounce his son, Hunter, actively colluding with communist China.  At first, we were confused but a source we have within the Biden campaign has alluded to the fact that internal polling shows black support for President Donald J. Trump is at an astounding 22-25 percent.  This would explain the amped-up rudeness we are seeing on display.  Adding to this story is the fact that Rush Limbaugh, during the second hour of his show today, has pointed out that the Proud Boys are a mixed group, both racially and ethnically, and that their international head- Enrique Tarrio- is a person of color.  He’s a black Cuban.   Yet, we know that “Pro-China Joe” Biden interacted with segregationists Senator J. William Fulbright, D-AR, Senator Herman Talmadge, D-GA, Senator Strom Thurmond, D-SC, Senator Robert C. Byrd, D-W. VA, Governor George C. Wallace, D-AL, and numerous other white segregationists.  His own pick for VP called him a ‘racist’ so what the heck?  
  72. 2020 Thursday A: The Trump campaign slams the Presidential Debate Commission over it ‘moving the goalposts’ on behalf of “Pro-China Joe” Biden.  Biden supports the moderator being able to cut the mic of Trump- is this a sign of confidence in the Biden-Harris campaign?  We think now.  Meanwhile, ransomware attacks- most likely from communist China and Russia- hammer Tyler Technology, a company that helps report election results in real time.  Tyler says the attacks ‘cannot change votes’ but that they ‘can sow confusion.’  They are working to correct this situation.  Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, California, what was first reported yesterday- that the authorities had arrested the POS shooter of the two sheriff’s deputies as they sat in their patrol car is a fact.  Convicted felon, Deonte Murray, 36-years-old was already in custody for other offenses so they did not have to search far for this scumbag.  Hoist him high and drop him!  Elsewhere, the CDC extends its ‘NO SAIL’ order for all cruise ships until the end of October due to the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.   Finally, President Trump signs a stopgap bill to keep the government funded.
  73. 2020 Thursday B: LEFT-WING, LIBERAL, FAKE NEWS MEDIA attack line on Trump today is “WE DEMAND YOU DENOUNCE WHITE SUPREMACY” in these words.  Everyone in the administration must say this or else.  Friends, it is clear the Democrats are losing black and Latino voters, Telemundo providing a BIG INSIGHT into this shift following Tuesday night’s debate in Cleveland, Ohio.  A whopping 66-percent of viewers said Trump won compared to 33-percent who felt he lost.  This is NOT good for Democrats.  Let’s make them a modern-day incarnation of the Whigs.  Meanwhile, the Cook Political Report says that the Trump campaign is winning the voter registration battle forcing the Biden campaign to begin going door to door in the search for voters.  Speaking of the Biden campaign, WHY is the VP nominee hiding?   Is it because she knows the truth that the Harris-Biden 2020 ticket is going to be one of the all-time greatest landslide losers?   Still the latest poll from Rasmussen says Biden leads Trump 51% to 43%.
  74. 2020 Thursday C: U.S. Border and Customs officers bust 125 pounds of cocaine, worth at least one million in the U.S.- at a border crossing from Mexico into the United States.   The cartels are going to whack somebody somewhere for this mix up…

  77. 2020 Thursday F: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– We had a FAIRLY BIG UPSWING in the markets today.  Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 27,816.90, UP 35.20 points (+0.13%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  11,326.51, UP 159.00 points (+1.42%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,380.80, UP 17.80 points (+0.53%).  Price of GOLD: $1,907.80 per troy oz., -8.50 (-0.44%).  Here is the price of SILVER: $23.84 per troy oz., -0.409 (-1.69%).  Price of PLATINUM: $902.80 per troy oz., -3.20 (-0.35%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,328.20 per troy oz., -2.30 (-0.10%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $2.87 per #, +0.002 (+0.07%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $38.36, -0.36 (-0.93%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.79 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.85 euros.  Conversely, one-dollar U.S. = 28.88 Taiwanese dollars.  Unemployment now stands at or around 8.4 percent (August).  In April, it was a whopping 14.7-percent.  Right now, approximately 13.5 million Americans are out of work, thanks to Xi Jinping’s Bat Flu.  Jobless claims rose to nearly 850,000 first-time unemployed workers seeking benefits.  Other than on Beijing, the blame rests squarely on the shoulders of House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi who will not come to a COVID-19 relief deal with the Trump White House.  Vote her out on November 3 and send her packing.   
  78. 2020 Thursday G: Late this evening, President Donald J. Trump announces that he and First Lady Melania are now COVID-19 positive.  This follows on the news that Hope Hicks, an integral part of the White House team announced earlier in the day that she tested positive for the Chi-Vi.  This means Fox News commentator Chris Wallace now must rush to his doctor just as “Pro-China Joe” Biden will.  Sounds like the 2020 campaign is sputtering to a halt.  Thank you, Chi-Coms, thank you.
  79. 2020 Thursday H:  Here is the result of Thursday Night Football’s game: (1) Thursday Night Football: Denver Broncos, 37 (1-3) @ New York Jets, 28 (0-4).

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 402,690 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 1,388 deaths which we expect will come soon which will push the dictator past the death mark the 45th president held.  NOT GOOD, Joe, NOT GOOD.

  86. 2021 Friday F: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Both Nationalist aka the Republic of China- aka FREE China- and the Chi-Coms celebrate their national day today.  The Chi-Coms decided to have some fun and sent more than two dozen warplanes into Taiwanese airspace.  It would appear that Chairman Xi is seeking to increase pressure on the freedom-loving people of FREE CHINA.  Folks, we should have nuked the Chi-Coms back in the early 1950s.  Light ‘em up, tune ‘em up, and make them docile.
  87. 2021 Friday G: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh has tested positive for the ‘VID.  He is asymptomatic.   Next, multiple failed candidate Andrew Yang said today that ‘were it not for COVID-19, President Donald J. Trump would still be in office.’  Meanwhile, aging Senator Lisa Murkowski, RINO-AK, decries the surge in COVID-19 cases in the Last Frontier and blasts those who compare ‘mask mandates with Nazism.’  The atrocious old gal is trying to save her jobs.  Next, a law firm is battling COVID-19 mandates in New York State but U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Sonia “A Wise Latina” Sotomayor smacked the lawsuit against them down.  The mandates requiring students, workers, and state employees to undergo jabs stands.  Next, Joe Biden is urging ALL U.S. airlines to impose Chi-Vi vaccine mandates on ALL employees.  (See ‘follow the money’).

  93. 2021 Friday M: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– Joe Biden showed up on Capitol Hill today with a disheveled House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, trying to make some magic happen on all the multi-trillion-dollar spending bills the pair are trying to shove through to competition.  It was clear that Joe was unclear as to where he was while Nancy’s eyes were looking in two different directions at the same time and when reporters shouted questions at him as he fumbled along the hallway, he reacted angrily as though Corn Pop was nearby threatening to kick his senile butt.  Joe finally babbled about the passage of the bill that it matters not if it takes ‘six minutes, six hours, or six days’ to pass the unconstitutional POS bill which to most observers means it’s not going to pass.  Joe’s ‘agenda’ is at risk, especially with Senator Manchin opposed to it and Senator Kyrsten Sinema already on the plane heading back to Arizona.
  94. 2021 Friday N: Political News I– Polling suggests the Democrats are going to lose the Senate in 2022.  Folks, if the border is not closed, the Dems have nothing to worry about.  Meanwhile, Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, the dingbat Rep. better known by ‘AOC,’ is mocking Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, who is hesitant about voting for the disastrous bills the socialist Democrats SO WANT.  Senator Manchin said today that ‘if he cannot explain the bill back home to his constituents, he won’t vote for it.’  Good for you.  (Note to AOC- STFU, you ditz).  
  95. 2021 Friday O: Political News II– Rep. James Comer, R-KY 1st congressional district, says that ‘Hunter Biden’s art sales pose a national security risk.’  Amen.  Rep. Rob Wittman, R-VA 1st congressional district, says it’s ‘extremely troubling that Joe Biden lies or has forgotten’ practically everything the senile cretin says and does, especially when it comes to the disaster in Afghanistan and the loss of U.S. military personnel.
  96. 2021 Friday P: U.S. Supreme Court News I– In a speech to the University of Notre Dame law school yesterday, U.S. Supreme Court Samuel A. Alito Jr. defended the court’s ‘shadow docket’ as critics continue labeling the nation’s high court as one controlled by a ‘hidden cabal.’  IF the court is controlled by a shadowy cabal, then it’s a leftist one that constantly threatens to pack the court with loads of leftwing justices.
  97. 2021 Friday Q: Business News– New car sales have fallen by 14-percent in the U.S.  This can, of course, be blamed on the shortage of computer chips.  Friends, globalism does not work; we should have been manufacturing our own chips and never have relied on foreign suppliers.
  98. 2021 Friday R: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1699 what with a $34 million jackpot on the line: 20, 25, 36, 62, 63, and Mega 06.  Stay tuned for info on the winners… Out of 62382 winning tickets, the highest winners were 35 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $509 apiece.
  99. 2022 Saturday: Observation of the Day– The Democrats subscribe to the boneheaded notion that IF one tells a lie long enough and strident enough, those on the receiving end of told lie will come to accept it as the Gospel truth. Thus, we have all this howling, wailing, and gnashing of teeth that numerous Republicans running for office are ‘election deniers, evil election deniers.’  As far as I can recall, Democrats have denied more elections than any other political party in the history of the United States.  As far as I can recall, Democrats have attempted to overturn and corrupt more elections in this country than any other American political party.  The louder they scream this bogus crap- that Joe Biden somehow pulled off the electoral upset of the century the more we know that the modern-day equivalent of the “Know-Nothings” STOLE the 2020 Presidential Election.  Look- everyone knows that the senile, child-gropin’ loser in the White House is illegitimate because KARMA is delivering evidence of that every single day since he forced his way into the White House.  Karma has a way of righting cosmic wrongs and Joe Biden is the biggest ‘cosmic wrong’ our nation has ever seen.  In approximately five weeks, we are going to throw out as many Democrat bums as we possibly can and then some.  In 2024- if ‘Big Brother Joe’ remains in the White House, we are going to send him packing, too, along with that elder-abusing wife of his.  Question: can we just bring back President Trump now and give him his second term as well as a third term?  We must get him back into the White House ASAP and the Democrats must be targeted, ejected, and then persecuted to the ends of the Earth.  God bless you and God bless our country.  Chef Lilah Paulikovich.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Cheap Trick returned to form yet again with their second eponymous album, “Cheap Trick,” popularly referred to as “Cheap Trick ’97.’  The album came out on April 29, 1997, and featured the band sounding like they did twenty years earlier: rockin’ loud and rockin’ hard.  The album features Robin Zander (vocals, guitars, and piano), Rick Nielsen (lead guitar, backing vocals, acoustic guitars, electric saw, and piano), Tom Petersson (bass, backing vocals, acoustic bass, tamboura, and E-bow), and Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion).  The album has 11 smoking tracks (13 if you buy the extended edition), which makes it well worth one’s while to rush out to the nearest record shop and picking it up in the condition, the price, and the format that makes sense to you- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy!

  66. 2019 Sunday: Famed member of the East Coast rock band, the Cars[v]– Ric Ocasek (guitars/vocals/keyboards 1976-1988 / 2010-present)- is found dead in his home in New York City on this date; he was 75.  Meanwhile, Hong Kong freedom protesters outside the British Embassy find themselves under fire from the authorities with tear gas and water canyons.  Protests there are growing in momentum as the people continue protesting the Chi-Coms.

Trump.  Elsewhere, the Palestinians are crying and screaming that they are ‘being stabbed in the back.  Oh, boohoo.  STFU you worthless scumbags- you’ve had your chances, more than any other country ever, to make peace.  When ALL Arab nations sign onto this deal, you will have a choice: make peace with Israel or become the pariah of the world, forever shunned, dismissed, and driven away.   
  68. 2020 Tuesday A: As wildfires rage out of control along the West Coast, at least 36 people in California alone are dead because of the conflagrations.  All of this is easily preventable if only proper forest management would move to the fore once again.  IF (and this is a big IF) the environmentalists and their Democratic Party stooges GENUINELY loved wildlife, particularly endangered species, would it not make more sense to protect their habitats by proper management coupled with an emphasis on protecting the flora and the fauna?  It is all so unnecessary the level of destruction occurring in our forests that we hope in 2022, the people of California, Oregon, and elsewhere where dimwits rule remember everything these people have done and vote them out en mass!  Enough is enough!
  69. 2020 Tuesday B: During a speech, Democratic vice-presidential nominee Kamala Harris lets it slip that if she and “Pro-China Joe” Biden are elected, it will be a “Harris administration.”  Folks, everyone knows this so don’t act shocked.  Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, California, the county doubles the reward for information leading to the POS shooter who attacked two L.A. Sheriff’s deputies as they sat in their patrol car in Compton, California, from $100,000 to $200,000 and the sheriff encourages race-baiter Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James to put up the same amount; in effect, telling him to put his money where his mouth is.  So far, we’ve heard nothing from “King James” nor did we believe we would.  He’s a punk.  Finally, the city of Louisville, Kentucky, settles on $12 million to the family of Breonna Taylor.  She is the woman who died in a crossfire of lead when police officers stormed into her and her boyfriend’s apartment with a NO-KNOCK WARRANT and then when the boyfriend opened up, she died in a fusillade of lead.   
  70. 2020 Tuesday C: Following the signing of the peace accord at the White House earlier in the day, Palestinians begin firing rockets into neighboring Israel, wounding some citizens as they went about their daily lives.  The Palestinians are a bunch of sniveling pigs.  Stop!  Elsewhere, in Iraq, rockets begin landing near the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad.  This clearly is the work of the bottom-feeder Iranian Revolutionary Guard.  We would hope the Trump administration sinks both their navy and takes out the oil refineries leaving them even more Third World than they now are.  What is clear is that the new peace process in the Middle East is one that has a greater chance of succeeding and sources inform us that Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, possibly Yemen, Algeria, and perhaps Qatar might join in the process.  Elsewhere, in response to the potential Iranian threat to attack a U.S. ambassador, President Trump warns the mullahs that they will pay a price ONE-THOUSAND TIMES WORSE than anything they might do.  Could we see Tehran go up in a mushroom cloud?
  71. 2020 Tuesday D: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 29,386,463 confirmed cases, UP by 271,986 cases, 930,589 confirmed deaths, UP by 4,993 deaths, and 19,943,453 confirmed recoveries, UP by 270,382 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 6,665,316 confirmed cases, UP by 28,896 new cases, 198,085 confirmed deaths, UP by 718 new deaths, and 3,612,064 confirmed recoveries, UP by 31,279 new recoveries.  We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.  It is also clear that misreporting the news has Americans believing at least 30 million Americans- OR MORE- have died from Xi Jinping’s Chi-Com Flu which is not true which was said a week ago, so it shows misinformation is doing its job among the gullible and ill-informed citizenry.
  72. 2020 Tuesday E: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 768,334 confirmed cases, 14,477 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 10,887 confirmed cases, 99 confirmed deaths, and 3,693 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 83,962 confirmed cases, 2,096 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 450,425 confirmed number of cases, 32,655 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.   The governor of New York, the drooling moron Andrew Cuomo continues trying to blame President Donald J. Trump for all the deaths when he is the one who sent Bat Flu-infected people into rest homes where the most vulnerable people are, uh, we mean, were.  Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there.  Here they are: 162,273 confirmed cases, 1,141 confirmed deaths, and 120,443 confirmed recoveries.  Watch out for the rockets, Mo!
  73. 2020 Tuesday F: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,995.60, UP 2.27 points (+0.008%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,190.32, UP 133.67 points (+1.21%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,401.20, UP 17.66 points (+0.52%).  The price of GOLD is $1,961.90 per troy oz., -4.30 (-0.22%) while the price of SILVER is $27.34 per troy ounce, -0.119 (-0.43%).  The price of PLATINUM is $978.40 per troy oz, -3.80 (-0.39%) while the price of COPPER is $3.06 per pound, -0.006 (-0.20%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,417.50 per troy oz., +8.00 (+0.33%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $38.39 per barrel, +0.11 (+0.29%).  Today, COFFEE is $124.30 per metric ton, +1.00 (+0.81).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.78 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.84 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency, a known fact which is why the world must disengage with them.  Today, communist China’s ally, the World Trade Organization released a ruling that says ‘the U.S. violated international regulations by imposing trade tariffs on $278 billion of Chi-Com goods entering the U.S.’  Stop the crying, Beijing, this is NOTHING ruling, and the U.S. will continue punishing you, authoritarian SOBS.
  74. 2021 Wednesday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 227,150,151 confirmed cases, +480,596, 4,671,400 confirmed deaths, +8,373 and 203,826,456 confirmed recoveries, +454,052.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 42,432,847 confirmed cases, UP 144,643 from yesterday’s reporting, 684,572 confirmed deaths, UP 2,231,[vi] and 32,244,493 confirmed recoveries, UP 67,709.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [vii]

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 366,118 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 37,960 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  76. 2021 Wednesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 4,518,943 confirmed cases, 67,632 confirmed deaths, and 2,378,010 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 3,499,061 confirmed cases, 49,254 confirmed deaths, and 2,413,074 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 73,268 confirmed cases, 671 confirmed deaths, and 72,597 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 615,582 confirmed cases, 7,153 confirmed deaths, and 258,825 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., New York: they have 2,423,298 confirmed cases, 55,269 confirmed deaths, and 2,116,680 confirmed recoveries. [viii]  
  77. 2021 Wednesday C: Foreign Covid Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 1,202,212 confirmed cases, 7,452 confirmed deaths, and 1,112,533 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).   Let us look at one other portion of the world- St. Pierre and Miquelon, 213th area on the list: 31 cases of the virus, 1 confirmed death and 30 confirmed recoveries. [ix]     
  78. 2021 Wednesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,814.39, UP 236.82 points (+0.68%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 15,161.53, UP 123.77 points (+0.82%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,480.70, UP 37.65 points (+0.85%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $72.60 per barrel, +2.13 (+3.02%).  The price of GOLD is $1,795.20 per troy oz., -11.90 (-0.66%) while the price of SILVER is $23.89 per troy ounce, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of PLATINUM is $941.90 per troy oz, +3.20 (+0.34%) while the price of COPPER is $4.41 per pound, +0.09 (+2.06%).

[xiii]        
  79. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.391 per gallon, $3.084 in Florida, $4.073 in Hawaii, and $3.876 in Washington state. [xiv]    Let us look at one other Delaware: $2.998.  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- Liechtenstein: $6.865 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,764,701,405,049 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xvi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Luxembourg, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Brazil with $258 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  80. 2021 Wednesday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, has a new bill with which to deny U.S. recognition of the Taliban ‘government’ in Afghanistan.  His GOP colleagues have sent a letter to U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken demanding the U.S. State Department slap a designation of ‘foreign terror group’ atop the Taliban which they are.  Senator Joni Ernst, R-IA, says that the ‘Taliban 2.0 is the same terror group it has always been.’
  81. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 174 for the ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the debacle down along the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 81 since her singular visit anywhere in the vicinity of the border.  What a disaster.  
  82. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– North Korean continues demonstrating that they’re ‘still with us’ by test-firing cruise missiles into waters near Japan and South Korea.  When President Donald J. Trump was in office, relations between the so-called ‘hermit kingdom’ and the United States were relatively cordial whereas now, the North Koreans are ramping up their activities.
  83. 2021 Wednesday I: Covid-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The U.S. Department of Defense and Health and the Department of Human Services is planning on buying 1.4 million doses of Regeneron.  In other (BOGUS) news we heard today, ‘immigrants (i.e., ILLEGAL) will reportedly have to show ‘proof of Chi-Vi vaccination before swarming across the U.S.-Mexico border.’  Sure, right- how is this going to work?  Next, as the Biden regime continues pushing the idea of Chi-Vi booster shots atop 2-3 immunizations for the Wuhan Virus, Rep. James Comer, R-KY 1st congressional district, says that MORE info regarding the need for such ‘boosters’ must be handed over by the Biden regime’s leaders.
  84. 2021 Wednesday J: Covid-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-And Authoritarianism News– As demands from the illegitimate regime in the White House grow for everyone to get vaccinated with the Chi-Vi vaccines, calls for ‘religious exemptions’ are on the increase.  We suspect that the Christian Scientist and Jehovah’s Witnesses’ churches are going to increase membership.
  85. 2021 Wednesday K: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $44.77 (2) AstraZeneca $56.45 (3) Johnson & Johnson $165.42 (4) BioNTech $355.25 (5) Moderna $434.46.  Follow the money, folks, follow the money.  All this talk of booster shots on top of the vaccines is crazy what with more and more reports about problems caused by the vaccines continue to proliferate.  IF you seek the truth, you must watch One America News and Newsmax.  The vaccines are causing far more problems than are reported in the mainstream media, which is not right, especially when European nations now are backing away from any discussion of booster shots.  The only reason the talk of booster shots is intensifying is because the Deep State and the Democrats are getting rich off them.  Look at that pig, Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci- this guy is growing wealthy off the suffering of the American people.
  86. 2021 Wednesday L: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $84.87 (2) General Dynamics: $198.48 (3) Boeing: $214.22 (4) Lockheed Martin: $345.07 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $355.74.  This is how the Deep State and elected members of Congress grow rich, investing in companies in which they send billions of dollars.  This is not only illegal but highly immoral.
  87. 2021 Wednesday M: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Ansell Ltd.: $36.30 (2) DuPont: $70.01 (3) Honeywell: $221.69 (4) 3M: $184.19 (5) Teijen: $1,646.00.  These stocks are going to take off like rockets as the Deep State and elected members of Congress- and their staffers- continue investing in these firms either through themselves or via straw persons such as, uh, well, like Hunter Biden.
  88. 2021 Wednesday N: Artificial (Fake) Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Beyond Meat: $110.81 (2) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $63.88 (3) Maple Leaf Foods Inc./Tofurkey: $27.11.  Like it or not, this is the next push as the Green New Deal continues becoming a part of our lives whether we want it to be or we don’t.  All one need do is to watch the movie, “Soylent Green” starring Edward G. Robinson and Charlton Heston.  Popular culture has a way of becoming reality if one lives long enough.
  89. 2021 Wednesday O: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden- ever a man of science- says that ‘human activity is the root cause of extreme weather.’  Next, Joe Biden has demanded that Senators Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, and Kyrsten Sinema, D-AZ, come to the White House so he can apply pressure on them to vote for his bogus $3.5 trillion ‘infrastructure bill.’
  90. 2021 Wednesday P: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– A new McLaughlin poll says that ‘Joe Biden’s approval numbers have cratered, the American people are concerned, and that NO one likes “Kooky Kamala” Harris.  (Note- my colleagues in California tell me that Kamala Harris is detested by almost everyone in the state and the only good thing about her serving in the regime is that it gets her out of their state.  Chef Itzi).
  91. 2021 Wednesday Q: Joe Biden Regime News I– It would appear the Biden regime is tossing Saudi Arabia to the wolves what with the withdrawal of its top anti-missile defense systems in the country.  What the hell is going on here?  In other regime-related news, one of the regime’s favorites and purported candidate for U.S. ambassador to Ukraine- Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman- says if ‘what we hear about Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Mark A. (Asshole) Milley is true, he must go.’  What has happened to the U.S. military?  Both of these men are absolute disgraces. [xvii].  Next, the U.S. Army says that soldiers refusing to get the ‘VID vaccinations may be forced out of the Army with less-than-honorable discharges.’  Yet, the U.S. Postal Service and elected members of Congress and their staffers do NOT have to undergo vaccination.  WTF!
  92. 2021 Wednesday R: Joe Biden Regime News II– Something very strange occurred today when the Biden regime trotted out an enfeebled old Joe Biden to hold a Zoom conference with Prime Minister Scott Morrison of Australia and Prime Minister Boris “BoJo” Johnson of England in which, the three leaders announced a new triumvirate of sorts with which to help the Aussies obtain nuclear-powered submarines.  Although the Chi-Coms were not mentioned, they acted as though this new alignment of the BIG THREE nations would counter Beijing’s ambitions in the region.  Most observers, however, believe the Brits and the Aussies came to senile Joe Biden’s aid so as to deflect all the negative press coverage it has been getting.  Even more embarrassing is that slobbering Joe could not even pull the name of the Australian leader out of his crumbling mind.  This was embarrassing and it also demonstrated that both Boris Johnson and Scott Morrison are in the tank for the Biden regime.  This is disgraceful and besides- we also believe the three countries are in the tank with the Chi-Coms, sort of a fait accompli.
  93. 2021 Wednesday S: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– Pope Francis- ever a creature of the left- says that ‘yes, abortion is murder but urges U.S. Roman Catholic bishops NOT to be political by denying so-called ‘Catholic politicians’ Holy Communion.  Folks, is the Pope on the Pro-Death money-go-round, too?  Like BIG PHARMA/vaccine manufacturers, Planned Parenthood and other infanticide-promoting organizations bestow BILLIONS of dollars upon left-wing and unscrupulous politicians and others.  It is akin to one selling their soul to Satan.
  94. 2021 Wednesday T: Moron News I– After little Sandy “The Fly” Cortez attended the $30,000 per plate Met Gala wearing a donated $35,000 designer dress with ‘tax the rich’ stenciled on the back of it, conservative groups are demanding an ethics investigation into perhaps the stupidest member of the U.S. House of Representatives which is indeed saying a lot.  We doubt any ethics investigation will go anywhere.  Look at Ilhan Omar, that woman married her brother to defraud U.S. immigration authorities and she is doing A-Okay.
  95. 2021 Wednesday U: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3595 what with a $17 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 01, 05, 07, 28, 45, and Mega 08.  Out of 108,351 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $17,854 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at (1) Dorose Liquor in Chatsworth, CA 91311 and (2) 7-Eleven in Vacaville, CA 95688. Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #885 with a jackpot of $432 million up for grabs: 01, 04, 18, 46, 62, and Power 25.  Out of 93,905 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers for $2,581,768.  The winning ticket was sold at the General Store in Compton, California 90222.
  96. 2021 Wednesday V: The Wrap-Up– As someone who lives in Hawaii, I do not have an opinion on the recall election in California.  However, my colleagues living there say that it may have been a good thing if the Republican National Committee had dumped millions of dollars in the state to wage 24/7 ads blasting what they say is the ‘worst governor in the nation.’  Instead, it became a personality battle between Larry Elder and Governor Gavin Newsom, a battle that could not be won no matter how likable Mr. Elder is and how bad Governor Newsom is.  This is the Democrat Party’s secret weapon- Republican ambivalence.  They look at California and say, “We can’t win there,” and thus they send no money to help turn the tide.  The Republicans say, ‘move forward, we will return next year.’  No, GOP, you won’t.  The numbers of illegals flooding the state and the corruption surrounding the election system there is going to prevent that from occurring just as it will help empower Democrats to win the remaining few House seats currently held by Republicans.  You had your chance, and you blew it, all because the GOP itself is corrupt and unwilling to fight fire with fire.  My colleagues said the proof of election fraud is in the pudding: in less than an hour after the polls closed, the results were in. Amazing how that happens, and Governor Newsom won by Kim Jong Un and Fidel Castro numbers.  California is lost forever.
  97. 2022 Thursday: Observation of the Day- Friends, we wish that Rush Limbaugh were still with us because he did predict that the Dems would discover a way by which, they could make elections meaningless and boy was he right.  They have tried to topple our system of elections through corrupting them just as they have by flooding the country with loads of illegal aliens.  The tricky thing about the illegal aliens is that many of them still cling to Christianity, a religion the Democrats despise and detest.  They also want them to get abortions- plenty of them- something your average illegal does not seek because of love of children.  Add to that the fact that the leftists are blatant socialists and have mobs of storm-troopers in the street and one can understand WHY the illegals are drifting more and more to the right and are eagerly registering as Republicans even though- technically- if we abide by the law- they cannot.  However, if it’s good enough for the Dems then it’s good enough for us.  I think it’s going to be  good election cycle.  The question is, can we maintain the wins or will we need to outlaw the Democratic Party?  I say, ‘OUTLAW THEM.’  Chef James “Jimmy” Hall.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0953 a 7” x 5” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Lone Rose.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclee, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from Cheap Trick is the one that pushed them across the finish line as far as being superstars.  On October 08, 1978, Cheap Trick released their first live album, “Live at Budokan.”  The band had become superstars in Japan what with “I Want You to Want Me” and the version on this album, hyped-up made-for-AM-radio single monopolized the airwaves for weeks and much like the tune, “Surrender,” remains a radio favorite to this day.  This is perhaps one of the all-time best live albums to come out of the 1970’s and would be up there with “Frampton Comes Alive” as a mega-seller.  Once again, the lineup is the same quartet of Rick Nielsen (guitars, backing vocals), Robin Zander (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Tom Petersson (bass, backing vocals), and Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion).  We hope that everyone will visit their favorite site for the absolute best in rock music and will then add it to your never-ending, forever-growing collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-approved music and DVDs- you will be glad you did.

[i] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane, the Jefferson Starship, Starship, and of the various bands’ members beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.  Please look for them and enjoy.

[ii] We promoted the music of Iron Butterfly beginning on Saturday, 27-July-2013 through Thursday, 08-August-2013.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your ever-growing collection of rock music.

[iii] We began promoting the music of the famous acid rock band from Texas- the 13th Floor Elevators- beginning on Tuesday, 14-May-2013 through Thursday, 06-June-2013.  We would encourage everyone to seek the music of this legendary band out and adding it to their collections.  You will be glad you did.

[iv] 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.

[v] We are not sure when we will present the music of the Cars but if you are still with us when we celebrate our second decade of activity, you may see them then so please, stay with us.  We thank you.

[xvii] IF the charges against Gen.

Milley, says that ‘his calls to his Chi-Com ‘counterpart’ (we believe, MASTER) were designed to prevent conflict between the Chi-Coms and the U.S.  Folks, we believe that Milley is a creature of Beijing.  This is definitely NOT good.

  65. 2015 Thursday: Monsoon rains devastate northern Japan, slamming the city of Joso, which forces 90,000 people to evacuate their homes to escape mudslides, heavy winds, and rain.   Meanwhile, Denmark- after closing rail and road service with Germany in order to stop the tidal wave of Muslim ‘refugees’ passing through their country to get passage to Sweden- reopens both avenues of ingress.  What is wrong with you?  Build a flipping wall between you and your German neighbors. 
  66. 2016 Saturday: Ahead of yet another failed ceasefire in Syria, concentrated airstrikes in the country kill dozens in rebel-held areas.  Meanwhile, an earthquake in Tanzania kills at least 11 people and injures numerous others.  Finally, French authorities announce they are going to launch an investigation into a woman identified ONLY as Ornella G. on charges of possible terrorism as she was found with a car loaded with cooking gas containers near the Notre Dame Cathedral- it’s interesting to note that on April 15, 2019, mysterious fires broke out in the famed cathedral destroying much of it.  On this incident, authorities remain mum. [ix]
  67. 2017 Sunday: Hurricane Irma makes landfall in Florida, roaring in as a Cat 3 Storm.  Elsewhere, American actor Harry Landers dies at age 96.  Meanwhile, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reports that Russian airstrikes hitting ferries crossing the Euphrates River killed at least 34 civilians including nine children.  Those dirty Russkies.
  68. 2018 Monday: The secretary-general of the United Nations- Antonio Guterres- calls for an immediate summit on climate change, emphatically telling the General Assembly that ‘climate change is moving faster than we are.’  Follow the science, people: the Sun is the sole generator of ‘climate change’ across the Solar System on every planet that contains a ‘climate.’  Solar winds, solar flares, and sunspots are the main drivers behind whether it’s hotter or cooler so relax.  We can, of course, contend with pollution which, we should but stop scaring everyone. [x]   Elsewhere, California- another lunatic locale- passes a bill that will commit the state to carbon-free energy by 2045.  Two years later, the state is suffering rolling brown-and-blackouts and Sacramento has NO CLUE as what to do- that’s what you get for shutting down the state’s last nuclear power plant in El Diablo Canyon with NOTHING to take its place!
  69. 2019 Tuesday: After being crossed one too many times, President Donald J. Trump hands his third national security advisor John Bolton his walking papers.  We have no clue as to what happened to Mr. Bolton, he seemed to be a normal guy at one time whereas now, we see him for the conniving RINO he is, and a man determined to go to war with Iran whatever it takes and whatever the cost.  Didn’t you learn from Iraq, John?  Good riddance.
  70. 2020 Thursday:  Tonight, the NFL season kicks off in Kansas City where the 2020 Superbowl winners the Chiefs will do battle with the visiting Houston Texans.  No one is participating an exciting season what with all the promised Black Lives Matter protests.  Our view: we don’t care, we won’t be watching.  Elsewhere, last week, first-time jobless benefits claims hit 884 thousand.   As for the economy, we learn that for the 2nd quarter consumer spending was down 34.1-percent.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump announced his list of potential SCOTUS nominees in his second term yesterday.  Here are the potential nominees: (1) Bridget Bade, 9th Circuit Court of Appeals; (2) Daniel Cameron, 51st Kentucky state AG; (3) Sen. Tom Cotton, R-AR; (4) Paul Clement, attorney with Kirkland & Ellis, LLP; (5) Sen. Ted Cruz, R-TX; (6) Stuart Kyle Duncan, 5th Circuit Court of Appeals; (7) Steven Engel, Assistant AG for the Office of Legal Counsel of the US Dept. of Justice; (8) Noel Francisco, former solicitor general of the U.S.; (9) Sen.

  71. 2020 Thursday A: Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi says that ‘Joe Biden is going to make a great president’ and that in eight weeks, the Senate will be in the hands of the Democrats and the numbers of Dems in the House will be insurmountable.  The speaker’s Aricept® must be working really well today for her to express such confidence but when 42-percent of likely black voters say they are going to vote for President Trump, the Democratic Party’s house is ablaze.  Keep being confident, Madam Speaker, going to be fun seeing what you have to say on November 4.  Elsewhere, “Pro-China Joe” Biden has NO campaign events today after President Donald J. Trump blasted the old bigot for using a teleprompter to answer scripted questions.  Ai-yi-yi!  Speaking of President Donald J. Trump, he appeared before a massive crowd in Michigan today.  Stunning!

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 358,559 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 45,519 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xviii]        
  80. 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 and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have dropped to $4.395 per gallon, $3.005 in Florida, $4.075 in Hawaii, and $3.880 in Washington state. [xix]    Let us look at one other location- Arkansas: $2.848.  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- Yemen: $6.415 per U.S. Gallon.[xx]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,746,035,441,578 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after All Others, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Japan with $1,251,000,000 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  81. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 170 for the ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the southern border and Day No. 77 since her singular visit to the slowest section of the border.  What a job.  Next, here are the numbers of illegal aliens in the country as well as what they are costing us, cost first: $517,985,920 is the cost of caring for the illegal alien invaders for just this day.  Next, here is the cost of caring for the illegal aliens for the year to date: $276,682,440,704.  Third, here is the estimated number of illegals who have swarmed into the country this year: 2,835,773.  Finally, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate for the total numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the United States: 36,835,772.  The news reported today that a new illegal alien caravan consisting of 14,000 Haitians, Cubans, and West Africans is forming up in Colombia waiting to cross into Panama.  Sounds like a job for napalm.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  82. 2021 Friday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I– The Vatican rejects Israeli criticism concerning Pope Francis’ ignorant comments on Jewish law.  Elsewhere, Australia- rapidly becoming a corrupt, criminal state is banning Ivermectin for off-label use in combatting the Dink-a-Link Fever.  What is wrong with these idiots in Australia?  Answer: just look at the ‘follow the money’ segments.  Speaking of overseas, as cases of the Delta variant skyrocket in Britain thanks to the Chi-Coms keeping this pandemic ongoing and causing problems, their economy is collapsing into the crapper.
  83. 2021 Friday H: Foreign News-Overseas News II– After Joe Biden giving Vladimir Putin the nod several months back, the Russians announce the completion of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline from the Baltic to Germany and says that if Ukraine wants the money to keep flowing, they had better begin showing Moscow some good will.  Speaking of the Russkies, they are accusing the United States of interfering in THEIR elections.  Wow.  Go figure.
  84. 2021 Friday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Sadly for the Joe Biden regime, the creators of the COVID-19 booster shots say there may be NO need for them.  We knew that.  Meanwhile, the Food and Drug Administration official says the FDA is hopeful that kids under age 12 will soon be able to get COVID-19 vaccines and booster shots which will generate billions more dollars that will find their ways into the pockets of Deep State apparatchiks and elected officials.  Ah, the classic money-go-round is alive and well.
  85. 2021 Friday J: Covid-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and-Authoritarianism News– Restrictions imposed by dictator Joe are being met with growing resistance.  Governors Greg Abbott, R-TX, and Ron DeSantis, R-FL, vow to fight tooth and nail against the unconstitutional edicts pouring out of the White House like fecal matter from a duck’s ass.  Florida and Texas are not the only two states fighting back against this senile dictator.  Montana, Wyoming, Arizona, South Dakota, Nebraska, Missouri, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Alabama, South Carolina, and Georgia are and by next Wednesday, California should be joining them in combatting this un-American, pro-communist regime.  We look for more states to climb aboard.  Joe Biden is slamming these brave governors as being ‘cavalier.’  Sadly, for the Biden regime, an appeals court has reinstated “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis’ ban on mask mandates in the Sunshine State’s schools.  Masks are optional and teachers’ unions need to STFU.
  86. 2021 Friday K: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News II– Elsewhere, the Los Angeles Unified School District is taking heat over their bogus Chi-Vi vaccine mandate requiring ALL students aged 12 and up to undergo vaccination whether they or their parents want them to or not.  American people, RESIST.  These people are using the pandemic to alter the way Americans live beyond the point of repair and we are NOT going to permit them to do this.  RESIST!
  87. 2021 Friday L: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $45.59 (2) AstraZeneca $56.26 (3) Johnson & Johnson $166.97 (4) BioNTech $349.19 (5) Moderna $449.38.  Here is what the stock prices were a week ago today: (1) Pfizer $46.84 (2) AstraZeneca $58.83 (3) Johnson & Johnson $175.04 (4) BioNTech $334.30 (5) Moderna $416.70.  We speculate the reason for the drop in some of the prices between this week and last week is that people are growing warier of the vaccines by the minute.  Hence, the push for more vaccines and more mandates.
  88. 2021 Friday M: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $83.00 (2) General Dynamics: $201.60 (3) Boeing: $210.30 (4) Lockheed Martin: $345.88 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $354.10.  Here is what these stocks were worth a week ago today: (1) Raytheon: $83.65 (2) General Dynamics: $202.46 (3) Boeing: $218.17 (4) Lockheed Martin: $356.00 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $365.93.
  89. 2021 Friday N: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Ansell Ltd.: $36.30 (2) DuPont: $70.49 (3) Honeywell: $222.37 (4) 3M: $184.55 (5) Teijen: $1,666.00.  These companies are making money hand over fist.  We will keep you posted.
  90. 2021 Friday O: Artificial (Fake) Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Beyond Meat: $112.90 (2) Maple Leaf Farms-Tofurkey: $21.42.  This is the next big push.  We will continue developing it but the ‘meat is evil’ crowd is going to continue pushing for meatless meat which is not right.  We are drawing ever closer to Soylent Green-like sustenance.
  91. 2021 Friday P: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump released a new ad commemorating the jihadist terrorist attacks on New York City, the Pentagon, and in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.  Thank you, Mr. President, thank you.   Next, President Trump also said that the ‘downside of a 2024 run for the White House is that he would be saving CNN.’
  92. 2021 Friday Q: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden’s approval rating has fallen to 39-percent with 49-percent disapproval and yet the pro-Beijing POS continues forging ahead with his plan to communize the United States.  Meanwhile, as the Biden regime continues waging war on ALL Trump appointees remaining in the government, Sean Spicer says it’s ‘frankly insulting’ to have his (military) board service questioned.’  The Biden regime does NOT want any Trump appointees left anywhere in government.  That is Barack Hussein Obama for you. 
  93. 2021 Friday R: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– Mob mouthpiece Jen “Circle Back” Psaki says that- get this- the Taliban is ‘businesslike and professional.’  In other stupid regime news, Joe Biden called his boss in Beijing- Xi Jinping- so the two dictators could set some parameters, so the two nations don’t come into conflict (especially when the Chi-Coms begin the invasion of Taiwan).
  94. : Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden regime is defending the mass resettlement of Afghan refugees across the United States even as a growing pandemic of measles is breaking out among them.  The GOP is demanding answers on the numbers, the locations, and the vetting of all these ‘refugees.’  Silence is all they get in answer.  Meanwhile, White House Chief of Staff- and Obama stooge- Ron Klain is receiving loads of blowback for an unwise retweet related to the Chi-Com virus vaccines.  The tweet said that everything the Biden regime is doing related to the China virus is the ultimate work-around.  Lastly, the Biden regime is appealing a recent court ruling against DACA.
  95. 2021 Friday T: Political News I– Rep. Greg Murphy, R-NC 3rd congressional district, lambasted Joe Biden today by saying his ‘COVID-19 mandates are merely a cover for his disaster in Afghanistan and the calamity on the U.S.-Mexico border.’  Next, U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer warned Democrats calling for him to retire that ‘what goes around comes around.’  Ouch.  Elsewhere, former U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams says that ‘Joe Biden has painted people- and NOT the Chi-Vi- as the enemy.’  (Note- Joe is good at doing this, he blames everyone else for his own lies, ineptitude, and mistakes). 
  96. 2021 Friday U: Political News II– Rep. Stephanie Murphy, D-FL 7th congressional district, says there is NO way she can vote for the $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation bull-crap.  Good for you.   Next, former U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer is nudging her former colleague, Senator Dianne Feinstein, DS-CA, to retire.  Here is what WE think: the Dems know that Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom is going down in the recall election next week and if Di-Fi would like to step down NOW, “Nazi” Newsom could then appoint himself U.S. senator prior to the end of the day on Tuesday.  Many have sought to encourage Di-Fi to retire before, but she always waves them off.  Will she continue doing so or will the senile old battle ax submit to the leftist mob?
  97. 2021 Friday V: Political News III– Andrew Yang- growing increasingly disillusioned with the Democratic Party- is forging ahead with the formation of a new political party.  Good for you.  In other news, Arizona has sold its Unilever bonds following anti-Semite Ben and Jerry’s outrageous move to ban its ice cream from being sold in Israel because of what they call apartheid.  Screw Ben and Jerry, their ice cream has always sucked anyway.  Tillamook, now that is ice cream of which to be proud.   In other news, as U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken instructs State Department officials in the aftermath of the Afghanistan implosion to ‘look around the corner’ (whatever that means), Rep. Darrell Issa, R-CA 50th congressional district, says the numbers of U.S. passport holders remaining in Afghanistan far outnumbers what the Biden regime claims.  This story of abandonment of U.S. citizens is NOT going away no matter how many mandates old Joe whips out of his backside.
  98. 2021 Friday W: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1693 what with a $368 million jackpot on the line: 20, 32, 35, 47, 64, and Mega 18.  Out of 110,398 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $30,055.
  99. 2022 Saturday: Observation of the Day-  The only reason WHY Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom survived his recall last year is because of voter apathy, normal Democratic Party shenanigans, and the failure of the Republican National Committee getting behind the best candidate, giving him or her the necessary cash, and pushing him or her across the finish line.  California is NOT a BLUE state, all one need do is to look at the county election maps across the state and to see that they are almost all RED.  Add to that the fact that no one likes Gavin Newsom- including most Democrats- and we could easily have dumped this worthless POS.  Ah, well, while he’s warning Californians to avoid using ENERGY during the hottest portions of the day all the while wearing a fleece jacket and cap tells you that this man is little more than a pompous nimrod who is extremely vulnerable IF ONLY, we can get voters out to throw him out of office in November.  Singlehandedly, he has driven our state from being the best in the nation to the absolute worst with high power costs- when you can get it- high housing costs (millions of illegal aliens are getting free apartments which kills it for everyone else), high fuel costs, high food costs, crumbling infrastructure, and the wasting of resources rather than husbanding them.  We have plans to create more water storage and canals with which to move excess water about the state but oh, no, the fresh water flows out to sea to protect an invasive species of fish.  This November, we must turn everyone out and vote this POS and all his cronies out of office.  Ronna McDaniel, are YOU going to help us or are you going to continue ignoring the people of California crying out for deliverance from this Jacobin POS?  Let me know what you think- Chef James “JT” Tobiason.

[i] Not sure when we will get around to doing the music of Three Dog Night but if we ever return to promoting the music of famed rock bands from the 1960s and the 1970s, we sure as heck will include this stellar band, one that is still performing to this day.  We saw them in 2019 and all we can say is “Wow.”

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

[iii] Not sure as to when the AICPENDBLOG.COM will promote the music of the Aerosmith but when we do, you will also see the music of Blondie and Talking Heads shared as well.  Please, keep your eyes open for the day this magnificent event occurs.

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

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

[vi] We look forward to doing the music of Willie Dixon along with other great bluesmen of the era like Muddy Waters, and all the rest of the great voices of America that made the music of our country what it is.

[vii] When we return to promoting American bands, Cheap Trick will be towards the top so please stay alert.  You won’t want to miss them.

[viii] We hope to share the music of Nirvana with the world within the next decade or so when we will do a series of Grunge Rock bands.

[ix] The French are under numerous terrorist threats and yet, they won’t discuss them out of fear of offending the massive Muslim population the dimwits have allowed to overrun their country.  Round them up and deport them back to whence they came.

[x] Any college geography class will drive this point home.

  56. 2014 Monday: Many children across ten states have undergone hospitalization due to Enterovirus, EV-D68; children with asthma are particularly at risk for complications.  The virus reportedly has found new life in the U.S. thanks to President Barack Obama[v] allowing Third World Central American children to flood the U.S. from across the Mexican border.  Elsewhere, Ray Rice was let go by the Baltimore Ravens and suspended indefinitely by the NFL after the release of a video in which the running back struck his fiancée, Janay Palmer, in an elevator in February 2014.
  57. 2015 Tuesday: Prime Minister David Cameron announces that a recent drone strike in Syria took out two British citizens serving in the Islamic State.  Both men—Reyad Khan and Ruhul Amin—died in the British drone strike that occurred on August 21, 2015.  The duo had made recruitment videos for the ISIS scumbags.
  58. 2016 Thursday: NASA launched its OSIRIS-REX space probe today, destined to rendezvous with the asteroid 101955 Bennu in 2018.  It would arrive on scene on December 03, 2018.  Once there, it was to collect mineral samples from the surface and if all goes well will return to Earth orbit and eventual landing in Utah at a military facility sometime in 2023. 
  59. 2017 Friday: Hurricane Irma regained Category 5 status, battering Cuba with 160-mph wind, and taking aim on the Miami area; the death toll across the Caribbean climbed past 20 after the storm ravaged islands including St. Martin, St. Barts, St. Thomas, Barbuda, and Anguilla.  In one of the country’s largest evacuations, officials in Florida told more than 5 million people to leave their homes ahead of the hurricane; parts of interstates 75 and 95 northbound were bumper-to-bumper.
  60. 2018 Saturday:  In Egypt, a high court hands down 700 sentences, including 75 death sentences, for a violent Islamist protest put on by the Muslim Brotherhood at Rabaa al-Adawaya Square on August 14, 2013.  As always, the protesters claim it was a ‘peaceful sit-in,’ but they began running amok and General Abdel Fattah al-Sissi responded with troops and killed loads of violent rioters for which, he deserves commendation.  Al-Sissi now is president of Egypt, and the country is in peace.   
  61. 2019 Sunday: Why Marvel would be promoting homosexuality is beyond us, but the mayor of Rio De Janeiro banned a comic book in which two men were swapping spit.  However, the Brazilian Supreme Court overturned the mayor’s ban.  Sad.  Elsewhere, tensions increase between India and Pakistan as Prime Minister Modi continues pushing his ‘make Hinduism great again’ agenda, what they call Hindutva.
  62. 2020 Tuesday: President Donald J. Trump criticized the top Pentagon brass today when he said that they ‘engage in useless wars in order to boost defense contractors’ profits.’  This is true and has been true since President Dwight D. Eisenhower, Republican, warned the country about the ‘military-industrial complex,’ meaning there is loads of money for everyone involved in procuring and fulfilling defense contracts.  Military profiteers are the most shameful, disgusting people because they have no problem sending your loved ones to wage wars we never seem to win anymore.  Hence, money continues flowing around the clock.  God bless you, President Trump.  Speaking of President Trump, he is visiting Florida and North Carolina today while “Pro-China Joe Biden” is conducting a remote town hall somewhere.  Speaking of both Trump and Biden, a poll conducted by USA Today and Suffolk University says that ‘people expect that Trump will crush Biden in their debates by a 47-to-41 percent margin.’  Friends, it is bigger than that, people just don’t want to answer these polls.
  63. 2020 Tuesday A: Fascinatingly, Democrats and anti-Trumpers are beginning to recoil from Jeffrey Goldberg’s article in the once-staid magazine, The Atlantic, a story the magazine published on September 03, 2020.  Mr. Goldberg- quoting the usual suspects- anonymous sources- claimed he was told (and to her discredit, Jennifer Griffin of Fox News Channel backed him up) that in 2018 on a visit to France to visit U.S. World War I military cemeteries, President Trump supposedly called the fallen ‘losers’ and ‘suckers’ for having served and worse, for having died.  Both Goldberg and his magazine got about three solid days of Trump-bashing but now, people are pulling back from it because NO has the balls to step forward (where are you, Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, you pansy) and anyone who once supported the claims are quickly withdrawing from the claims in fear of being made liars- which they are.  President Trump may have slandered former Sen. John McCain, but McCain was an anti-Trumper from the start and the man who originally helped Hillary produce the “Trump-Russia Collusion” bogus theory.  We think McCain was a POS, too and believe that Mr. Goldberg, like most liberal ‘news media’ (aka Fake News) is full of crap, stinking, festering crap and U.S. military personnel know it.
  64. 2020 Tuesday B: We learn that over the Labor Day weekend in Chicago, 53 people were shot, 10 killed, including an 8-year-old girl.  Elsewhere, in New York City, at least 10 people were shot, including a six-year-old child who had both legs shattered when an errant drive-by fusillade of lead ripped through them.   Elected Democrats hem and haw over the numbers of deaths via gun violence and do everything possible to blame President Donald J. Trump for the crimes in THEIR locales.  Portland, Oregon, saw more violence over the Labor Day weekend and people are begging for it to stop yet Democratic leaders lack the balls to do something about it.  Time to bring in ex-Black Water Mercs and have them take out the scumbags, do what the Columbian people did when they finally could stand drug lord Pablo Escobar’s crimes any longer.  Fight fire with worse fire.
  65. 2020 Tuesday C: Rochester, N.Y., Police Chief La’Ron Singletary announces that he and his entire command structure are resigning over events surrounding the recent death of black PCP arrestee Daniel Prude who died in custody following a spit hood placed over his head approximately one week before his death.  Elsewhere, another black police chief- this one in Dallas- puts in her resignation papers.  Reneé Hall handed in her walking papers, effective November 2020.  Elsewhere, in Washington, D.C., the Pelosi Mob continues fighting the targeted COVID-19 bill put forth by the Republicans.  Don’t worry, Madam Speaker, WE KNOW who is responsible for NO money going to those who need it, and we won’t forget.
  66. 2020 Tuesday D: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 27,392,203 confirmed cases, UP by 191,260 cases, 897,713 confirmed deaths, UP by 7,873 deaths, and 18,337,409 confirmed recoveries, UP by 217,307 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 6,411,392 confirmed cases, UP by 16,259 new cases, 192,451 confirmed deaths, UP by 405 new deaths, and 3,450,818 confirmed recoveries, UP by 20,996 new recoveries.  We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.  It is also clear that misreporting the news has Americans believing at least 30 million Americans- OR MORE- have died from Xi Jinping’s Bat Flu which is not true which was said a week ago, so it shows misinformation is doing its job among the gullible and ill-informed citizenry.
  67. 2020 Tuesday E: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 742,833 confirmed cases, 13,764 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 9,957 confirmed cases, 86 confirmed deaths, and 3,028 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 80,623 confirmed cases, 2,044 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 444,751 confirmed number of cases, 32,971  confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.   The governor of New York, the drooling moron Andrew Cuomo now is trying to blame President Donald J. Trump for all the deaths when he is the one who sent Bat Flu-infected people into rest homes where the most vulnerable people are, uh, we mean, were.

[vii]   
  70. 2021 Wednesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 352,181 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 51,897 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  71. 2021 Wednesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 4,446,689 confirmed cases, 66,657 confirmed deaths, and 2,328,394 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 3,424,388 confirmed cases, 46,977 confirmed deaths, and 2,371,324 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 69,144 confirmed cases, 626 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 588,829 confirmed cases, 6,807 confirmed deaths, and 252,976 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., U.S. Veteran Affairs: they have 321,227 confirmed cases, 13,977 confirmed deaths, and 294,990 confirmed recoveries. [viii]  
  72. 2021 Wednesday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 1,117,596 confirmed cases, 7,205 confirmed deaths, and 1,026,173 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).   Let us look at one other country- Wallis and Futuna, 205th country on the list: 445 cases of the virus, 7 confirmed deaths and 438 confirmed recoveries. [ix]     
  73. 2021 Wednesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,031.00, DOWN 68.93 points (-0.20%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 15,286.64, DOWN 87.69 points (-0.57%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,514.07, DOWN 5.96 points (-0.13%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $69.28 per barrel, +0.93 (+1.36%).  The price of GOLD is $1,791.70 per troy oz., -6.80 (-0.38%) while the price of SILVER is $24.00 per troy ounce, -0.37 (-1.53%).  The price of PLATINUM is $975.10 per troy oz, -20.80 (-2.09%) while the price of COPPER is $4.23 per pound, -0.05 (-1.18%).

  74. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have dropped to $4.396 per gallon, $3.013 in Florida, $4.073 in Hawaii, and $3.885 in Washington state. [xiv]    Let us look at one other location- Alaska: $3.700.  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- Slovakia: $6.306 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,737,633,538,711 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xvi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Sweden, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Australia with $40 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  75. 2021 Wednesday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– The Taliban- ever mindful of the demands of the U.S. for an inclusive government that respects women, gays, and religious minorities (YEAH!  RIGHT!) has trotted out its new ALL MALE JIHADIST government that will- interestingly enough- be sworn in on Saturday, September 11, 2021, at around the time the first hijacked airliner slammed into the World Trade Center.  Those scumbags have learned much in the past 20 years and even more hilarious is the fact that one of the new government’s members is a scalawag long wanted by the FBI for committing acts of terrorism.  It will be fascinating to watch these scumbags attend their first United Nations General Assembly meeting.  Wow.  In other Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News, President Donald J. Trump recently said that ‘we rebuilt the U.S. military’ and that ‘they (Joe Biden’s regime) gave it to the Taliban.’  He’s right.
  76. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 168 for the world-famous ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the disaster along the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 75 since her SOLE VISIT to the quietest sector of said border, the El Paso Sector.  Next, here are the stats as compiled by One America News regarding the calamity going on down there and around the country thanks to all the illegal aliens swarming into the country.  First, here is the cost for just this day of caring for all the riffraff flooding the country: $519,584,096.  Imagine what that money could do to help Americans?  Second, here is the amount of money shelled out for this year alone for caring for all these noncitizens: $274,492,260,352.  Next, here is the estimate for the number of illegal aliens who have swarmed into our country for the calendar year 2021: 2,813,325.  Fourth and final, here is the conservative low estimate for the numbers of illegals currently inside the United States: 36,813,324.  Wow.  Round them up, deport them all, build the wall, and lay in minefields and foo gas pits along the entire southern border.  Next, use sniper teams to take out the human traffickers and then leave their corpses to rot as warnings to others who would follow in their footsteps.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  77. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– The Ministry of State Security (we assume) arrested the organizers of the annual remembrance of Tiananmen Square massacre.  Guess there won’t be one anytime soon.   Guess they will be joining others in western China’s gulags.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Beijing is now banning private tutors from teaching online classes.  Elsewhere, Mexico joins the Pro-Death countries when its Supreme Court decriminalizes abortion and immediately, Pro-Death advocates begin demanding ALL persons suffering jail terms for abortion crimes be released.   Next, protests break out in El Salvador over the new law that makes Bitcoin legal tender in that Central American hellhole.  The citizens of that country claim that Bitcoin is too unstable.
  78. 2021 Wednesday I: Foreign News-Overseas News II– The Palestinians are up to no good yet again.  Once again, they are lofting fuel-soaked balloons into the skies and sending them over Israel from the Gaza Strip where these bottom-feeding scumbags hope they will cause mischief by starting fires.  The Israeli Defense Forces have been launching retaliatory airstrikes and drone strikes on these sub-human animals.  Elsewhere, ahead of some jihadist trials in France, the government is increasing security everywhere.
  79. 2021 Wednesday J: Covid-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and-Authoritarianism News– A new poll says that 72-percent of American workers would quit their jobs if their employers forced them to get one of the Chi-Com virus vaccinations.’  No wonder the Dems are allowing the Third World to flood the country.  They are replacement workers.  You see, Dems secretly love scabs over union workers.  Look at what they did to highly paid Keystone XL Pipeline workers.  Unemployed with a stroke of feeble Joe Biden’s pen.
  80. 2021 Wednesday K: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $46.51 (2) AstraZeneca $57.07 (3) Johnson & Johnson $171.90 (4) BioNTech $336.24 (5) Moderna $422.90.  Don’t forget, faithful readership- the Deep State apparatchiks, the elected politicians, and members of the industrial-military-political complex invest heavily in both these companies and the ones below because of the massive return on their money.  When you vote to send X amount of dollars to a pharmaceutical company that manufactures vaccines for which, they cannot be sued for adverse reactions and side effects no matter how debilitating or devastating, you can see the money-go-round in action.
  81. 2021 Wednesday L: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $82.87 (2) General Dynamics: $204.40 (3) Boeing: $211.38 (4) Lockheed Martin: $351.46 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $360.40.  Military stocks are big money-makers, especially when leaving behind $90 billion of U.S. military equipment in a terrorist hellhole like Afghanistan because it means replacement equipment and weapons will have to be made and thus you see, the money-go-round from Washington, D.C., to these and other similar companies who then make ‘campaign donations’ (bribes) back to the politicians.  This is why President Donald J. Trump was such a threat to the existing Deep State.
  82. 2021 Wednesday M: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– Joe Biden continues stumbling about following yesterday’s visit to observe damage caused by Hurricane Ida.  People all around him as he plodded on like the senile old fool that he is down the streets were yelling at him, mocking him, accusing him of abandoning and even killing fellow Americans in the disastrous evacuation out of Afghanistan.  Wow.  And the old coot believes he is the most popular president in history (fake president, that is).  Even more embarrassing is the fact that today we learned that members of Joe Biden’s White House regime MUTE his microphone on numerous occasions so fearful are they that the declining codger is going to go off script.   Wow.   Take, for instance, Joe Biden has been bragging about the Stock Market and taking jabs at President Donald J. Trump.  Uh, the markets have not been good lately and old Joe is only around 54,000 deaths shy of the number of COVID-19 deaths that occurred when his predecessor was in office.  Wow.
  83. 2021 Wednesday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden regime is calling for an additional $24 billion for use in relief funds and another $6 billion atop the already over-bloated ‘budget reconciliation’ bill to help get Afghan evacuees settled around the country, enrolled in the ranks of the Democratic Party, and on the road to citizenship.   However, former Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Chad Wolf says that ‘corners have been cut’ during the hurried evacuation of ‘Afghan translators and allies’ into the United States.  Elsewhere, the Biden regime is demanding that ex-Trump military officials RESIGN NOW from various military advisory boards.  Russ Vought, however, is having none of this bullying crap and has said, “NO.”
  84. 2021 Wednesday O: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– A rally in support of the unfairly imprisoned Capitol Hill rioters is set to occur on the grounds of the U.S. Capitol.  Let these people out on bail at least, you let human fecal matter in Antifa, and the BOGUS Black Lives Matter run amok and then get out of jail before the day is done and who then vanish into the night.
  85. : Political News I– “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis[xvii] blows off claims he is going to run for president in 2024.  (Note- the liberal news media, i.e., fake news, is trying to sow division between the governor and President Donald J. Trump.  If Trump runs, DeSantis will support him if not become his vice president or will run in 2028.  Count on it).  Meanwhile, in 2022 news, the Democrats know how to pick ‘em, don’t they: Milwaukee city Alderman Chantia Lewis, who is running to get Senator Ron Johnson’s seat, found herself charged with embezzlement and other crimes.  Wow.  Let’s see if the Dems somehow manage to save her from the chopping block. 
  86. 2021 Wednesday Q: Political News II– Conservative Ohio U.S. Senate candidate and author J.D. Vance is back on Twitter after having his account ‘mistakenly shut down’ by the regime of Jack Dorsey.   He is running to replace outbound Senator Rob Portman, RINO.  Next, ‘enough seemingly is enough’ what with the New York Post demanding that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci be FIRED for having lied about his role in funding the Chi-Coms’ development of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Moving on, Nobelist and senior left-wing economist Joseph Stiglitz is calling for the termination of Jerome Powell, the head of the U.S. Federal Reserve.  Finally, President Donald J. Trump is preparing to endorse former aide to Rep. Liz Cheney, R-WY At-Large district, Wyoming attorney Harriet Hageman to take down her former boss in 2022.  
  87. 2021 Wednesday R: Political News III– Everyone knew it was going to happen and thus, it happened: ‘civil rights groups’ are suing the Lone Star State over its new, expansive voting rights law.  Uh, okay.  Next, Tripwire Interactive CEO John Gibson acceded to a firestorm of tweets after he released a Pro-Life tweet.  Good God, folks, what the hell is wrong with these people?  Whatever happened to freedom of expression?  Oh, wait, being WOKE means NO FREEDOM!
  88. 2021 Wednesday S: U.S. House of Representatives News I– Several House members have introduced a bill restricting the CISA director to a single five-year term.  CISA stands for Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency and the current head is Director Christopher C. Krebs who was sworn in during the Donald J. Trump presidency.  Elsewhere, Rep. James Comer, R-KY 1st congressional district, says that the House GOP is going to launch a ‘full-scale probe’ into the mess in Afghanistan caused by Joe Biden and upper members of his crumbling regime.
  89. 2021 Wednesday T: California State News– As the hours count down to the people of California being able to recall failed Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom next Tuesday, some people are doubtful about the success of the recall.  Even President Donald J. Trump says sadly enough that the Golden State Dems will ‘probably steal the election.’  We hope that there are far more people committed to removing this reprobate, but we understand what President Trump is saying.  If water pipes burst in various counting sites and all counting halts mid-stride until sometime the next day, then yes, Governor Newsom is going to remain dictator, uh, governor of California.  The Dems are running one suppression poll after another, ‘oh, 52.8-percent of California voters want “Nazi” Newsom to stay compared to 43.1-percent who want him to go,’ please.  “Nazi” Newsom can spin whatever he likes but people on ALL SIDES of the political divide want this man GONE.  Gray Davis- the last governor to be recalled- would be preferable to this POS who lacks talent, skill, and intelligence to run the state.  Even Governor Jerry Brown would be a welcome return but hey, we think Larry Elder is going to be moving into the gubernatorial mansion next Tuesday evening.  (Note- even Dems in D.C. are watching this closely.  They are curious as to the ‘political clout’ ‘Beijing Joe’ Biden has.  We don’t believe he has any).
  90. 2021 Wednesday U: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– After one hundred years of standing tall and proud in Richmond, Virginia, the statue of General Robert E. Lee, CSA, comes down and from what we have heard, it’s being cut into pieces.  The dimwits are celebrating the demise of the statue, but General Lee was one of America’s most gifted generals.  Back in the 1860s, state’s rights were all important and when General Lee was faced with either making war on his home state or defending it, he resigned his commission in the U.S. Army and went to fight for the Confederate States Army.  It was what it was, and we must be forgiving of all if we are to heal as a nation and to learn from the mistakes of the past.
  91. 2021 Wednesday V: Observation of the Day– Currently, the Democrats in California are behaving like the French nobility did prior to the eruption of the storming of the Bastille on July 14, 1789, what with blowing off the threat to Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom.  They are slinging all manner of mud and yuck at Larry Elder, labeling him the ‘black face of white supremacism’ and how he is ‘to the right of President Donald J. Trump’ which would not be a dreadful thing.  Look, “Nazi” Newsom has smacked the citizens of this state down for the last time, enjoying fine meals at the French Laundry Restaurant while denying the people who elected him the same right.  We have watched our state destroyed, restaurants and other businesses closed, the denial of church attendance, and rising crime.  By next Monday, the suppression polls will claim 95.9-percent of Californians want Gavin to remain in office which everyone knows is little more than bullshit.  We are not saying it’s going to be easy because the Dems will pull out all stops but having losers like Senator Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren, DS-MA, “Kooky Kamala” Harris, and other feculent pieces of crap come here and campaign here in SAFE AREAS is crazy.  NO one in this state likes those people so they are only making things worse for little “Nazi” Newsom.  We have our fingers crossed.
  92. 2021 Wednesday W: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3593 what with a $16 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 04, 05, 07, 25, 38, and Mega 02.  Out of 92,219 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers BUT NO MEGA for a prize of $33,622.  The winning ticket was sold at Chevron on 5609 Stine Road, Bakersfield, CA 93313.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #882 with a jackpot of $388 million up for grabs: 09, 22, 41, 47, 61, and Power 21.  Out of 79,126 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $18,730.
  93. 2021 Wednesday X: Friends, please stick around and we’ll discover together whatever the hell the Democrats are doing to rape our nation this day.  There is hope, however, my friends, when a ‘president’ loses college-aged students who chant “F**k Joe Biden, f**k Joe Biden, f**k Joe Biden,’ you know you are going down in flames and what is even better, is that everyone who supports the loser or who built the loser up is going down with the loser.  I cannot wait to see Nancy Pelosi booted out on her ass.  Woman to woman, YOU got to go, ‘Evil Nancy!’  Chef Goldie McNamara.
  94. 2022 Thursday: Friends, do not drink the Kool-Aid on ‘renewable energies’ and on electric vehicles, the infamous EVs.  California Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom, one of the all-time worst political hacks the world has ever seen, is begging and cajoling Californians NOT to use electricity between the hours of 4 PM to 9 PM and for sure do not plug in your electric car due to the strain on a faltering power grid.  Without fossil fuels and nuclear power, PG&E cannot supply the power necessary to run the nation’s most populous state in a ‘First World’ country.  By 2035, sales of gas-powered cars will no longer be permitted IF we fail to vote out as many Democrats as possible in November and beyond.  Besides, here is the scam of EVs: besides being costlier than the normal gas-powered vehicle, charging them is estimated to cost $100 per charge when one pulls up to a power station.  NO longer will they be ‘cheap or economical’ what with charging fees and battery replacement costs.  What the Democrats want is to end private ownership of vehicles within a decade, two at the most.  Lower income people will be forced into taking public transit due to the constraint of economics while the middle class will call in to have a self-driving, government-owned vehicle show up at their homes to take them on their errands.  Those who can afford it will be able to call in to central dispatch in one’s area and a self-driving vehicle will take you in private where you need to go.  Others with lesser means will be able to call a carpool heading in the same direction they are.  The government will thus be able to monitor where one goes, charge them a flat fee, a charging fee, and a mileage fee all of which it will deduct from one’s banking account via automatic debit as you go.  If one must travel a longer distance and want to use a private vehicle, it will be akin to the old ‘pony express,’ at the end of each battery charge, one will arrive at a government-run lot where the driver will pick up the next car for the next distance.  The government will debit one’s account every mile, every charge, and eventual destination.  In essence, NO one other than the wealthy and the government will own vehicles and theirs will most likely be gasoline-powered while everyone else must rely on EVs and a crumbling power grid.  Leftists will hail it as ‘progress’ and everyone else will label it loss of freedom, liberty, and independence.  What’s more, even though you do NOT own the car, you will still have to pay for automobile insurance.  This is New Age Communism in my book, rather like “Brave New World” by Aldous Huxley.  Let me know what you think- Chef James “JT” Tobiason.

[i] We promoted the music of the Association beginning on Wednesday, 25-September-2013 through Monday, 07-October-2013.  These guys were amazing, we hope you will check them out and consider adding them to your growing collection of albums and CDs.

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

[iii] The Atlanta Rhythm Section is another awesome American band, one we sure as heck hope to promote when and if we return to doing music again.

[iv] We are not sure when we will present the music of the Cars but if you are still with us when we celebrate our second decade of activity, you may see them then so please, stay with us.  We thank you.

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

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

245. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 02, 2022

Here’s a thought: although my GOP colleagues- which seems to be most everyone here at the globally famous AICPENDBLOG.COM- will be shocked at what I am going to say, imagine this: what IF the FBI swoops down on Donald John Trump at his rally in the Keystone State tomorrow night and arrest him in front of his crowd of haters, racists, bigots, Nazis, and Southern sympathizers?

TODAY IN HISTORY @ THE AICPENDBLOG.COM @ WORDPRESS.COM

SUMMER SESSION 2022

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 68

245. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 02, 2022:

U.S. Secretary of Agriculture David F. Houston, U.S. Attorney General J. Howard McGrath; French Artist Henri Rosseau; Heavyweight Boxing Champion Lennox “The Lion” Lewis, Electric Light Orchestra featuring Mik Kaminski, “You Wear It Well” by Rod Stewart (and the Faces), Molly Hatchet featuring Dave Hlubek, and Toto featuring Steve Porcaro:

  1. 44 B.C.: Cleopatra of Egypt declares her son by Julius Caesar- Caesarion- co-ruler of Egypt, naming him Ptolemy XV.  This would not sit well with the powerholders of Rome.
  2. 31 B.C.: Roman leader Octavian defeated the alliance of Mark Anthony and Cleopatra.  Octavian—as Augustus Caesar, became the first Roman emperor.  Note, he was the great nephew of Julius Caesar.
  3. 1192 Wednesday: During the Third Holy Crusade to reclaim the Holy Land from the Muslim hordes, Saladin and King Richard the Lionhearted sign a cease-fire between the army of the sultan and that of the Crusaders.  Muslims continue spinning the history making themselves out to be the ‘victims’ when they are the ones who flame, sword, and bloodshed conquered the Holy Land from the Christians.  If the Muslims want genuine recognition, admit to you being the villains and the Christians the defenders of all of what’s holy.
  4. 1666 Thursday: The Great Fire of London broke out, which burned down 13,000 homes and killed at least 8 people.
  5. 1732 Tuesday: The 246th Roman Catholic Pope- Clement XII- renews the anti-Jewish laws of Rome.

  12. 1898 Friday: At the Battle of Omdurman, Lord Kitchener’s troops employ the machine gun for the first time in battle against the howling hordes of the Mahdi, gunning down thousands of the screeching Muslim mob in the Sudan.  The massacre of these low-life Mohammedans was payback for the slaughter of the British-Egyptian garrison led by General “China” Gordon at Khartoum.
  13. 1901 Monday: Twenty-fifth U.S. Vice President Theodore Roosevelt offered the advice, “Speak softly and carry a big stick” at the Minnesota State Fair.
  14. 1910 Friday: In Paris, France, famed French artist Henri Rosseau died at age 66.  He was involved in Post-Impressionism, Naïve Art, and Pointillism schools of art.
  15. 1924 Tuesday: The Rudolf Friml operetta, “Rose Marie,” opened on Broadway.
  16. 1930 Tuesday: Captain Dieudonne Coste and Maurice Bellante piloted the first nonstop flight—the Question Mark–from Europe to the United States on this date.

  19. 1940 Monday: In New York City, N.Y., the former 5th U.S. Secretary of Agriculture David F. Houston died at age 74.  A Democrat, Secretary Houston served under President Woodrow Wilson from March 06, 1913, to February 02, 1920.
  20. 1942 Wednesday: During World War II, German forces begin entering and enveloping the Russian city of Stalingrad.  The fighting up to now has been incredibly fierce; it will become even fiercer.  Luftwaffe bombers plow the skies over the hapless city reaping destruction on the terrorized Soviet citizens below.  Before the battle would end little over four months later, more than one million- or more- people would be dead.
  21. 1944 Saturday: During World War II, Japanese forces shot down U.S. Navy pilot Lt. George Herbert Walker Bush as he completed a bombing run over the Bonin Islands.  The American submarine USS Finback later rescued him; however, his two crewmembers died.
  22. 1945 Sunday: Japan formerly surrendered in ceremonies aboard the USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay, formally ending World War II.  Meanwhile, Ho Chi Minh declared Vietnam to be an independent republic.  Strangely, he died on this date in 1969.
  23. 1951 Sunday: Future violinist with the British rock band, Electric Light Orchestra[i] 1972-1979, Mik Kaminski—is born in Harrogate, England, on this date.
  24. 1957 Monday: In Hartford, Connecticut, future keyboardist/vocalist with the rock band, Toto- Steve Porcaro- is born.  The legendary keyboardist would play with the band from 1977-1988 / 1998 / 2010-2019.

  27. 1963 Monday: State troopers assigned by Alabama Governor George C. Wallace prevented the integration of Tuskegee High School on this date.  Elsewhere, “The CBS Evening News” underwent lengthening on this date from 15 to 30 minutes.
  28. 1964 Wednesday: One of America’s most decorated military heroes of World War I, Medal of Honor recipient Alvin C. York, died in Nashville, Tennessee, at age 76.
  29. 1965 Thursday: In West Ham, London, England, future British heavyweight boxing champion Lennox “The Lion” Lewis is born.  Throughout his career, he would hold numerous- if not all- heavyweight boxing titles.  Over the course of his career, he would compile a record of 44 fights, 41 wins (32 KOs), 2 losses, and 1 draw.  In his final bout against Ukrainian heavyweight boxer Vitali Klitschko, he would leave a winner after scoring a TKO and would retire with the WBC, IBO, and The Ring magazine heavyweight boxing titles of the world. Amazing.
  30. 1966 Friday: The 60th U.S. Attorney General J. Howard McGrath died at age 62.  A Democrat, he served under President Harry S. Truman from August 23, 1949, to April 03, 1952.
  31. 1969 Tuesday: In what some regard as the birth of the Internet, two connected computers at UCLA passed test data through a 15-foot cable.  Meanwhile, in one of the all-time great TV disasters, NBC canceled the popular Sci-Fi show, “Star Trek” on this date; the show premiered originally on September 0, 1966.
  32. 1972 Saturday: Dave Wottle of the United States won the men’s 800-meter race at the Munich Summer Olympics.  Meanwhile, Rod Stewart[ii] receives his first #1 hit in America, “You wear it well.”

  34. 1974 Monday: President Gerald R. Ford signs the Employee Retirement Income Security Act.
  35. 1976 Wednesday: In Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, at the Arena, heavyweight boxer Jimmy Young scores a TKO of opponent, Lou Rogan, in the 2nd round of a scheduled 10-round heavyweight bout.  This put Young’s pro record to 18-5-2.
  36. 1985 Monday: Explorers announced they had discovered the whereabouts of the HMS Titanic on September 01 when a U.S. and French ocean expedition discovered the wreck 560 miles off Newfoundland.  The luxury liner’s exact location had been a mystery for 73 years.
  37. 1986 Tuesday: A judge in Los Angeles sentenced Cathy Evelyn Smith to three years in prison for involuntary manslaughter for her role in the 1982 drug overdose death of actor John Belushi; she served 18 months.
  38. 1991 Monday: The United States recognizes the independence of the Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania.
  39. 1992 Wednesday: The United States and Russia agreed to a joint venture to build a space station.
  40. 1995 Saturday: In the 12th round of their heavyweight championship fight, Englishman Frank Bruno beats Oliver “The Atomic Bull” McCall via a 12-round unanimous decision.  Frank Bruno’s record improved to 40-4 and he won the WBC heavyweight title of the world while McCall’s record fell to 26-6.   McCall’s next fight would be against Russian Oleg Maskayev while Bruno’s next fight would be his last what with Mike Tyson scoring a TKO in the 3rd round and taking the WBC title from his knocked-out body.

  44. 2003 Tuesday: A federal appeals court in San Francisco threw out more than 100 death sentences in Arizona, Montana, and Idaho because the inmates had been sent to death row by judges instead of juries.
  45. 2004 Thursday: President George W. Bush pledged “a safer world and a more hopeful America” as he accepted his party’s nomination for a second term at the Republican National Convention in New York.
  46. 2005 Friday: A National Guard convoy packed with food, water and medicine rolled into New Orleans four days after Hurricane Katrina.  Scorched by criticism about sluggish federal help (because he was a Republican mostly), President George W. Bush toured the Gulf Coast and met with state and local officials, including New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin (who is now in prison); at one point, Bush praised FEMA Director Michael Brown, telling him, “Brownie, you’re doing a heck of a job.”  Democrats criticized the President for this comment, too; however, had a Democrat been in the White House, no one would have said a flipping thing about similar comments or actions.  It is interesting to note that the President toured the area by aircraft so as not to take resources away on the ground for his visit; the left criticized him for doing this, too.  A Republican can NEVER win.
  47. 2009 Wednesday: A bomb blows up outside the Athens’ Stock Exchange in Greece, causing property damage and injuring a passerby.
  48. 2010 Thursday: BP says that if the ban on offshore oil drilling continues in the United States, it may not be able to pay the compensation mandated by the courts to those whose livelihoods suffered damage from the oil spill earlier in the year.

  50. 2013 Monday: The public learns about AT&T’s the Hemisphere Project, which gives telephone call data to law enforcement agencies, including the DEA.  Meanwhile, France released an intelligence report alleging chemical weapons use by Syria that dovetailed with similar U.S. claims, as President Bashar al-Assad warned that any military strike against his country would spark an uncontrollable regional war.
  51. 2014 Tuesday: Thomas Frieden, Director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, cautions that the Ebola epidemic will soon be uncontrollable unless the world can find more health workers to aid in treatment of victims and the burial of contagious bodies.
  52. 2015 Wednesday:  Yale University’s Thomas Crowther pens an article in the journal, “Nature,” in which, he declares that ‘Earth’s trees number just over three trillion.’  Not sure how he arrived at such an assumption but there you go.  Meanwhile, on his three-day trip to Alaska, President Barack Hussein Obama[iii] becomes the first U.S. president to visit the Arctic Circle as he stops to visit the people of the village of Kotzebue.  Congratulations, Mr. President!
  53. 2016 Friday: The president of Uzbekistan from the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991 to today- Islam Karimov- dies at the somewhat young age of 78.
  54. 2017 Saturday: Astronaut Peggy Whitson returned to Earth after 288 days on the International Space Station; the trip gave Whitson a total of 665 days in space, a record for any woman worldwide.  Elsewhere, Molly Hatchet[iv] guitarist Dave Hlubek dies at age 66. 
  55. 2018 Sunday: Near the Libyan city of Tripoli, heavy fighting among various militia groups enables the mass escape of about 400 political prisoners.  With holes blown in the walls and fleeing guards, the escapees head into the desert.
  56. 2019 Monday: Off Santa Cruz Island off the California coastline, a horrible accident occurs aboard a diving boat as an electrical fire quickly goes out of control killing all 34 divers below decks as they slept.  For those who awoke amidst the disaster, there was but one way out and it was blocked by flames.  All perished. 
  57. 2020 Wednesday: Financial news first, A.M.: DOW surges after S & P 500 and NASDAQ had record openings.  Jobs report for August 2020 is 490,000 jobs were created but economists pour water on it by saying they expected 950,000 jobs.  Blue states and cities must reopen so Americans can get back to work.  Charles Payne reports Zoom stock has gone up 400% from what it was valued at a year ago.  Let’s invest!  Next, Facebook and Twitter announce the removal of ‘Russian-generated ads with which, Vladimir Putin hopes to influence the election.’  Cool.  Next, New York City Mayor Bill “I’m an un-apologetic Commie” Di Blasio says, ‘indoor dining in the Big Apple won’t come back until we have a COVID-19 vaccine.’  Sad.  Speaking of the Kung Flu, Dr. Scott Atlas says he ‘never pushed President Trump on herd immunity’ as Democrats claim he did.  Elsewhere, Donald Trump is to speak in North Carolina while “Pro-China Joe” Biden is set to speak in Delaware today and says he will ‘visit Kenosha, Wisconsin, tomorrow.’  Speaking of Trump and Biden, Real Clear Politics averages show Biden is UP 48.9-percent to Trump’s paltry 42.6-percent.  Looks like “Gropin’ Joe” Biden is going to win on November 03 (LOL).  Next, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell[v] says, ‘due to changes in society, the NFL will have to find a new group of (scab) fans seeing as how everyone plans on protesting the National Anthem and will disrespect Old Glory.’  Hey, we loved the NFL but this year, none of us will be watching this garbage. Finally, last month, the criminal organization Black Lives Matter was +25 in favorability but after more than a month of mob violence, they are +0. 
  58. 2020 Wednesday A: After Nancy Pelosi visited a salon for a shampoo and blow dry, there’s an uproar across the country as salon owners who have been shuttered since Democrat politicians demanded they close down due to the COVID-19 Wuhan Bat Virus causing problems, Speaker Pelosi said, “I was set up.”  Whoa!  She also dismissed her not wearing a mask when she bitches at everyone else to WEAR MASKS.”  A source on Capitol Hill says she is using ‘hydroxychloroquine as a prophylactic to prevent her getting the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  We are on it and will report when we have further information.  Elsewhere, Hillary Clinton committed a microagression today when she commented on the mob violence occurring around the country as ‘looking like the Third World.’  Uh, are you trying to say that seeing black and brown people interspersed with some white people running amok, burning things down, looting, beating helpless passersby, and other horrible activities makes you think of some violent place in Africa?  That is what it sounds like, Mrs. Clinton.  We think you should apologize to the people of America.
  59. 2020 Wednesday B:  Portland, Oregon, Mayor Ted Wheeler says he is going to ‘move somewhere else’ (the condo association told him to get out after the mob tried to set the condominium ablaze last weekend) so his neighbors won’t have to suffer.  What a great guy!   Anyhow, Rush Limbaugh has pointed out that Mayor Wheeler is your archetypal Barack Obama ‘pajama boy,’ a wimp who is an Antifa/BLM ‘groupie whom they dismiss and treat like a punk.  In our experience, once a punk, always a punk.  Anyhow, we hope the recall effort the citizens of Portland have put on him is successful as Portland is a lovely city when commie rabble-rousers aren’t running amok.  Meanwhile, in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, the school district is under fire for having sought parents sign a pledge they WOULDN’T LISTEN IN ON SCHOOL LESSONS THEIR CHILDREN GET REMOTELY.  WTF!  Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, it’s time to crack down on ALL schools in the country so we can get back to school the way that it was, honest, respectful, and educational.  What is happening to our country?  Finally, David Blaine flies at 24,000 feet over the Arizona desert holding onto balloons.  Balloons.  However, a jetliner flying into Los Angeles International Airport reported a ‘guy in a jetpack flying off to their right side at the same height they were coming in at…the FBI is investigating.’
  60. 2020 Wednesday C: Speculation abounds today whether the ‘Kennedy Dynasty,” aka “Camelot” is over.  It is over. Senator Ed Markey was able to hold onto his seat yesterday with a resounding win over youthful Congressman Joseph Kennedy III, the grandson of the late Robert Kennedy (and supported by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi).  Folks, if you ever watched the AMC show, “Preacher,” you know the farther you go down a bloodline, the less viable the worthwhile DNA in the current recipient.  Like the Clintons, the Kennedys are has-beens and will continue being has-beens unless Mayor Richard M. Daley returns from the dead and brings along loads of ballots with him as that was the ONLY way John F. Kennedy won the White House in 1960.  Notorious voter fraud back in the day.  Of course, when you talk about Democrats, there’s ALWAYS voter fraud.
  61. 2020 Wednesday D: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 25,835,301 confirmed cases, UP by 500,962 cases, 858,661 confirmed deaths, UP by 10,557 deaths, and 17,122,192 confirmed recoveries, UP by 452,218 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 6,191,048 confirmed cases, UP by 80,848 new cases, 188,324 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,976 new deaths, and 3,279,332 confirmed recoveries, UP by 60,767 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt motherf**kers).
  62. 2020 Wednesday E: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 718,513 confirmed cases, 13,226 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 8,653 confirmed cases, 74 confirmed deaths, and 2,634 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 78,185 confirmed cases, 2,019 confirmed deaths, but like California, the palooka-faced governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, Idaho: 32,703 confirmed number of cases, 370 confirmed number of deaths, but sadly, Governor Brad Little, GOP, has no figures for confirmed recoveries in the state.
  63. 2020 Wednesday F: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 29,100.50, UP 454.84 points (+1.59%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,056.44, UP 116.78 points (+0.98%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,580.84, UP 54.19 points (+1.54%).  The price of GOLD is $1,947.20 per troy oz., +2.50 (+0.13%) while the price of SILVER is $27.56 per troy ounce, +0.16 (+0.58%).  The price of PLATINUM is $904.80 per troy oz, +0.70 (+0.08%) while the price of COPPER is $3.03 per pound, +0.01 (+0.33%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,267.50 per troy oz, -43.60 (-1.89%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.69 per barrel, +0.18 (+0.43%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.84 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros.
  64. 2021 Thursday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 219,918,475 confirmed cases, +652,824, 4,555,721 confirmed deaths, +10,562 and 196,560,720 confirmed recoveries, +519,509.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 40,512,934 confirmed cases, UP 182,222 from yesterday’s reporting, 662,850 confirmed deaths, UP 2,923, [vi] and 31,199,835 confirmed recoveries, UP 61,899.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [vii]   
  65. 2021 Thursday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 344,262 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 59,946 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xiii]        
  69. 2021 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have dropped to $4.394 per gallon, $3.019 in Florida, $4.078 in Hawaii, and $3.893 in Washington state.[xiv] Let us look at one other location- Wyoming: $3.575.  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- Luxembourg: $6.026 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,714,966,471,028 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xvi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Poland, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Philippines with $43 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  70. 2021 Thursday F: Afghanistan Crisis And Collapse News– The increasingly pathetic chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff- someone who would have been standing before a firing squad a couple of generations back- says that there ‘could be possible collaboration with (our new allies) the Taliban[xvii] in the (new) fight against ISIS-K.’  What a frigging moron.  IF you and the Biden regime begin ‘collaborating with the Taliban,’ we hope you get what’s coming to you.  Do not forget the lessons of German officers General Alfred Jodl and Field Marshal Wilhelm Keitel who paid the ultimate price at the end of World War II.  Like you, General Milley, they were political hacks.  However, they did have military skills and a wealth of historical knowledge.  Congressman Drew Ferguson, R-GA 3rd congressional district, says that ‘thanks to Joe Biden, terrorism is now back at the forefront of Americans’ minds.’  Congressman Scott Perry, R-PA 10th congressional district, says the blame for Afghan disaster rests on ‘suits in D.C. and not on the U.S. military.’
  71. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– We heard today that slobbering Joe Biden is going to begin defending the border.  Oh!  Wait!  He is talking about defending the Tajikistan border with Afghanistan.  Well.  Anyhow, today is Day No. 162 for the world-celebrated, so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of patrolling the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 69 since she has been to the U.S.-Mexico border.  No wonder she is celebrated as much as she is.  Moving on, here’s the count for today as presented by One America News.  First, here is the cost for this day of caring for the tens of millions of illegal aliens invading the country: $491,895,104.  Second, here is the cost of caring for the vermin for the entire year: $267,889,213,440.  Third, here is the number for the illegals who have swarmed into our country this year: 2,745,649.  Fourth and final, here is the number for the CONSERVATIVE ESTIMATE of illegals lurking about our country: 36,745,648.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  (Note- when the founders of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day back in July 2009, we estimated then that the numbers of illegal alien riffraff in the country to be around 35-50 million whereas now- 12 years later- we believe the honest-to-God number to be around 75-100 million.  This is not right, and the Democrats must answer for their crimes).
  72. 2021 Thursday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– The People’s Republic of China is cracking down on excessive showbiz and political news because it is polluting the minds and souls of their people.  They have been observing what is occurring within the United States and want none of that.  Perhaps, we should relocate the blog to China?
  73. 2021 Thursday I: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-And Authoritarianism News– People in Canada are growing tired of the edicts coming out of Ottawa and thousands are taking to the streets to protest the totalitarian rules imposed upon them by a tyrannical government.  Elsewhere, a patriotic chiropractor in Florida is drawing heat for handing out more than 500 mask exemptions to school students.  Hey, Doc!  When can we get a vaccine passport?  Name your price.
  74. 2021 Thursday J: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $46.84 (2) AstraZeneca $59.59 (3) Johnson & Johnson $174.93 (4) BioNTech $328.53 (5) Moderna $397.16.  You know what we say: follow the money.  The Deep State and the Democrats (and Republicans) invest BIG in these companies and the money flows back to them in the endless circle of the federal government buying massive amounts of vaccines for distribution here and around the world and back to them in donation and dividends.  Shame on them.  Still, we can invest these companies, too. 
  75. 2021 Thursday K: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $84.54 (2) General Dynamics: $202.30 (3) Boeing: $220.83 (4) Lockheed Martin: $358.05 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $368.30.  Ditto.
  76. 2021 Thursday L: President Donald J. Trump News– In the race to replace Senator Pat Toomey in Pennsylvania next year, President Donald J. Trump has endorsed veteran Sean Parnell to replace the retiring RINO senator in 2022.  The President’s PAC has released a new ad against crumbling Joe Biden that is simply devastating to the old pretender.  It encapsulates his entire  failure in Afghanistan, one that should drive the usurper from office.
  77. 2021 Thursday M: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, the aging relic from the 1960s, has made much-hated Congresswoman Liz Cheney, R-WY At-Large district, vice chair of this bogus panel.   (Note- Liz may as well go out with a bang).
  78. : Political News I– As the Democrats continue trying to ramrod various multi-trillion-dollar bills threw House and Senate, the Republicans say they hope they can add some amendments to the Defense bill.  Interestingly enough, Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, is encouraging his fellow Democrats to pause before trying to pass bills the American people simply don’t want to see passed.  In other political news- and this is good- New York City Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio is considering running for governor of the Empire State.  Say what?
  79. : U.S. Supreme Court News I– Democrats are going ballistic over the U.S. Supreme Court upholding the new anti-abortion law in Texas by a 5-4 vote (Jenna Ellis, attorney for President Donald J. Trump says the ruling should have been 9-0).[xviii]  The Democrats are howling about, “MY BODY, MY CHOICE,” which is kind of funny as when it comes down to NOT wanting the frigging vaccines, then, ‘it’s NOT my body, my choice’ but we must get the vaccine.  Ah, well, nothing lasts forever: the Dems are back to howling about ‘packing the U.S. Supreme Court again.’  Enough.   Speaking of this law, Dick Norris told Newsmax that the Lone Star State’s abortion law is ‘going to doom the Republican Party’s chances in November 2022.’  Come on, Dick, that’s bullshit.  Meanwhile, Joe Biden says the ‘court’s ruling on abortion in Texas is an unprecedented assault on women’s rights.’
  80. 2021 Thursday P: Economic News– First time jobless benefits last week dropped to 340,000 all the while inflation continues rising.  There are, however, 2,748,000 continuing jobless claims and inflation has risen to 5.4-percent when a year ago, it was just one percent.
  81. 2021 Thursday Q: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– We learned today that New York City prosecutors have cut loose 6,500 people accused of felonies in the five boroughs.  We suspect the people in the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island are excited as they can be.  In other crime-related news, lawyers for Nikolas Cruz- the shooter in the Marjorie Stoneman Douglas’ High School St. Valentine’s Day Massacre back in 2018- don’t want the terms “killer” and “massacre” used.  Okay, then substitute ‘murderer’ and ‘slaughter.’
  82. 2021 Thursday R: California State News– California continues burning what with the Caldor Fire approaching the outer environs of Lake Tahoe, California.  Only 20-percent contained, residents of South Lake Tahoe are evacuating as we speak.  And Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom wonders why everyone hates his guts and is going to vote him out of office on September 14?  Money for proper forest management and water conservation/power projects lies unspent while he continues enriching himself like the bloodsucking leech that he is.  Nancy Pelosi cannot save you.  Speaking of “Nazi” Newsom, wanted communist financier George Soros has donated an appalling $500,000 to help little Gavin hold onto his seat.  It must be nice to have money to throw away on lost causes because massive numbers of Latinos, loads of whites, blacks, Asians, and even Native Americans want to see this worthless governor ejected from office.  In other California news, Sacramento could soon force stores to display ‘gender neutral toys.’  Damn.  Don’t we have more important things to concern ourselves with such as fighting wildfires and water storage?
  83. 2021 Thursday S: Moron News I– Little Sandy “The Fly” Cortez- “AOC” to the Fake News Media- says that ‘Joe Biden’s withdrawal from Afghanistan was courageous.’  We bet her mama is so proud of her prodigy.  What a loser.  Sandy: just STFU.  (Note- the real fun will occur if this puffed-up little skank decides to primary Senate Majority Leader ‘Cryin’ Chuck’ Schumer in 2022.  It will be hilarious watching her dig her own grave).
  84. 2022 Friday: Here’s a thought: although my GOP colleagues- which seems to be most everyone here at the globally famous AICPENDBLOG.COM- will be shocked at what I am going to say, imagine this: what IF the FBI swoops down on Donald John Trump at his rally in the Keystone State and arrest him in front of his crowd of haters, racists, bigots, Nazis, and Southern sympathizers?  I mentioned several days ago that I expect the government to hammer him with federal charges sometime this month.  They can send whatever remaining anti-vaccine, pro-Trump (or suspected pro-Trump) agents remain so that when the place goes berserk and the crowd attacks them, they can kill two birds with one stone: the pro-Trump agents and the spark that will permit the declaration of martial law and the imposition of U.S. troops and federal agents on every street in every city across America.  When you have a cancer- and Trump is indeed a cancer- you have to cut it out, burn it out, and bombard it with chemo and radiation so as to save the patient which in our case, is the country.  Beware pro-Trumpers wherever you may be hiding, under whatever rock MAGA MAGGOTS lurk because Merrick Garland and the DOJ are coming for YOU.  How glorious is that going to be?  Let me know what you think- Chef Itzi Nakamura.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by the Beach Boys for some unknown reason was panned when in fact, it is among our favorites of their so-called ‘early-mid stage’ recordings.  “20/20” came out on February 10, 1969, and has some of our most favorite tunes on it.  Today, we have the deluxe 50-year anniversary edition: “I Can Hear Music: The 20/20 Sessions,” an album that came out December 07, 2018.  Tunes like the live favorite, “Do It Again,” “I Can Hear Music,” “Bluebirds over the Mountain,” the raunchiest Beach Boys tune ever- “All I Want to Do” (hard-rocking, too), as well as the beautiful instrumental, “The Nearest Faraway Place.”  Also on this amazing record is a lovely cover of “Cotton Fields,” as well as “Our Prayer” and “Cabinessence.”  The lineup features Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals and saxophones), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), and Bruce Johnston (vocals and bass), as well as some other musicians with which to round out the overall sound.  We hope you will seek this one out at your favorite site for the absolute best in rock music- you will be glad you did.

[i] We began promoting the music of the Move- and of Electric Light Orchestra, Wizzard, Roy Wood, and Jeff Lynne- beginning on Wednesday, August 12, 2020.

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

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

[iv] When we begin doing American rock bands again, we definitely will promote the music of Molly Hatchet, one of the great Southern rock bands of the country.

[v] When will the National Football League fire this ignoramus, this pandering POS?  After the league implodes.  By then, it will be too late because even though our satellite TV provider is offering ALL NFL games this season for free, we aren’t going to watch this garbage, mostly because of Goodell and the lackluster players but also because politics should never be introduced into sports.  You want to work on behalf of a cause, do so outside your job instead of during it as we can assure you, once ratings fall off, once viewers go elsewhere, all you wealthy motherf**kers will be crying you can’t make any money.  F**k you!

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

Trump holds a “Salute to America” celebration with U.S. military personnel, tanks on the Washington Mall so people can view military equipment for which their tax dollars pay as well as various military aircraft doing flyovers.  It was awesome to witness although the Democrats were weeping and wailing over the fact that ‘Trump used the military to promote an authoritarian agenda.’  [xi]

[xx]    Let’s look at one other location- South Dakota: $3.053.  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- Ukraine: $4.113 per U.S. Gallon. [xxi] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,483,147,227,019 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS. [xxii]  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 Australia, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is ALL OTHERS with $215 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.
  69. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 103 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the southern border and her ninth day since her first and last visit to the vicinity of the border.   The catastrophe continues by the day.  Here are the numbers as reported by One America News[xxiii] regarding this unnecessary disaster: (1) Cost this Day of caring for the illegal aliens suckling at the teats of the American taxpayers: $575,203,072.  Next, (2) Total Cost this Year of caring for the massive amount of parasitical invaders: $202,219,094,016.  Imagine what good that money could do for the American people?  Moving on, (3) Numbers of Illegals who have crossed into the United States since January 21: 2,072,583.  Finally, (4) Total Numbers of Illegal Aliens estimated to be in the U.S.: 36,072,584.  Folks, this last number is an extreme conservative number.  We at the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics estimated the numbers back when our blog began in 2009 as then being 35-50 million whereas now, we believe there are between 75-100 million illegals roaming about the country.  (Note- we would encourage everyone to watch the original “Red Dawn” movie starring Patrick Swayze.  You will see something utterly amazing in that movie when Powers Boothe tells the Wolverines how the invasion of the United States began).
  70. 2022 Monday: Happy Fourth of July, Independence Day, the ONLY Independence Day in the United States.  Stick around to see if anything is going on today, like a Chi-Com first strike on Washington, D.C.  Everyone knows old Joe is down in the basement spanking the wank, you know, ‘pulling a Toobin.’  Senile old coots like that sort of thing…

[i] Little would President Thomas Jefferson ever know about 190 some years later, American communists in Black Lives Matter and Antifa and other left-wing, Democrat-funded group would revile this brave founding father and American leader as an EVIL SLAVEOWNER to which we say, “F**K THEM!”  We cannot judge people of the past by those of today.  We must stop the vile communists, well-funded by George Soros, Beijing, and other leftist POS from destroying the nation’s heritage, both good and bad.  We here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM will fight tooth and nail to protect the United States and all its history.

[ii] We began presenting the music of the Animals, of Eric Burdon and the Animals, of Eric Burdon, Eric Burdon and War, and War beginning on Monday, 08-June-2015 and the presentation ran through Sunday, 02-August-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider making them a part of your listening enjoyment.

[iii] We began promoting the music of Canned Heat on Sunday, 05-June-2011 through Sunday, 17-July-2011.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.

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

[v] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  At the time we did so- in the earliest days of our second blog- we overlooked all of the individual solo efforts by everyone, ranging from Jeremy Spencer, Danny Kirwan, Peter Green, Bob Welch, to Mick Fleetwood, Stevie Nicks, and Lindsey Buckingham.  We hope to rectify that fledgling error by doing an updated presentation sometime in the future.  Please stay tuned.

[vi] We look forward to promoting the music of INXS sometime within the next 15 years or so.  We hope you will be there when we do.  We thank you.

[vii] We look forward to promoting the music of the Beach Boys and the group’s individual members- Brian, Carl, and Dennis Wilson as well as Alan Jardine, Mike Love, Bruce Johnson, and other members- at some point.  It will be a lengthy presentation rivaling if not surpassing the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Kinks, the Who, and Genesis.

[viii] 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 and the Plastic Ono Band.

[ix] When we do the music of Nirvana, we will be doing the music of Foo Fighters, Stone Temple Pilots, Pearl Jam, Hole, and Smashing Pumpkins.  Stick around as that is going to be gloriously fun.

[x] We hope to promote the music of Blondie within the next 7-8 years.  We hope you will be with us when we do.  When we do, we will do our best to include the music of various collaborations and spin-offs from the group, seeing as how every member was extremely talented. 

[xi] To which, we say, “F**K the Democrats, stop the crying, shut your mouths, you insolent unpatriotic POS.

182. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, JULY 01, 2022

2022 Friday: We will see what happens today and when we do, we will share it with everyone. However, we will do our best to remain one step ahead of the Joestapo. Meanwhile, a grateful nation celebrates as homosexual pride month is now in the books and normal folks can go about their business without being bombarded by a constant barrage of gay this and gay that. Enough is f**king enough already, unlike every other religious, ethnic, or racial minority, being gay is 99.99-percent a choice. The other miniscule percentile could be born that way but before scientists find the elusive gay gene, NO one can say otherwise. Period.

TODAY IN HISTORY @ THE AICPENDBLOG.COM @ WORDPRESS.COM

  1. 70 Tuesday: Roman General Titus orders his legionnaires to set up battering rams to begin the attack on the inner walls of Jerusalem during the Great Jewish War.  Seething with hatred for their vile enemies, the Romans cannot wait to grapple with their disunited enemies.  Various sects of Jews are fighting with one another just as they are the new Christian sect.  Much blood will be shed before the Romans achieve victory but once they do, they will destroy the city and drag the survivors off into slavery.
  2. 649 Sunday: Bishops elect Martin I to succeed the 73rd Roman Catholic Pope Theodore I to become the 74th pope.  Martin would serve from today until November 12, 655 while his predecessor- Theodore I- served from November 24, 642 until May 14, 649.

  11. 1863 Wednesday: The pivotal, three-day Civil War Battle of Gettysburg, resulting in a Union victory, began in Pennsylvania.  This would be one of the all-time bloodiest battles in the fight to free the slaves.  Little would anyone know that in 2021, even those who fought for freedom for others would be vilified as slaveholders and racists by dimwits on the millennial generation.  This is what happens when children are spared the belt across their asses.

  29. 1940 Monday: Hereditary enemies Romania and Hungary are at odds with one another over a border dispute.  The Nazis would soon be joined by both as members of the Axis, Hungary being the fourth and Romania the fifth.  However, when the invasion of the Soviet Union began the following year, the two competing powers would have Fascist Italian allies inserted between them in the advance into the Soviet Union to prevent unnecessary friction between the two.  On the Western Front, the Germans complete the conquest of the British Channel Islands of Jersey and Guernsey. 
  30. 1941 Tuesday: Bulova Watch Company sponsored the first TV commercial in New York.  Elsewhere, on the Eastern Front, the German conquest of the Soviet Union continues unabated.  As in the Ukraine, the citizens of the Baltic States welcome the Germans as they steamroll through their territory.  Lithuanians, Latvians, and Estonians all despises the godless communist regime in Moscow and view the Nazis as allies.  Many of them would serve in various auxiliary units under German command in the fight against the Jews and Partisans. 
  31. 1942 Wednesday: During World War II, Axis troops finally capture the Russian Black Sea port of Sebastopol in the Crimea.  In North Africa, the First Battle of El Alamein begins between Axis and British Commonwealth forces.  Elsewhere, in the Arctic Theater, the doomed British convoy PQ-17 on the way to the northern Russian port of Murmansk is discovered by the first two German submarines of a growing wolfpack.  Between Luftwaffe planes based in Norway and the voracious U-Boats, this convoy is going to suffer horrendous losses.  The British sailors are as yet unaware of their danger.
  32. 1943 Thursday: The U.S. government began automatically withholding federal income tax from paychecks.  Elsewhere, the Romanians are beginning to worry about an Axis victory in the Soviet Union and so Marshall Antonescu, the Romanian dictator, journeys to Rome to see Il Duce Benito Mussolini where he suggests that his country, the Hungarians, and the Italians leave the Nazis in the lurch and seek peace with the Allies.  Duce is horrified but says nothing.  All of them will remain in the war for now.
  33. 1944 Saturday: More than 2,500 people are killed by German flying bomb attacks against London and southern England.  Meanwhile, on the Western Front, the Germans are launching armored counterattacks against the Allies along the front.

  41. 1966 Friday: Medicare goes into effect.
  42. 1967 Saturday: The Beatles’ “Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely-Hearts Club Band” [iv] goes #1 and stays there for 15 weeks.  This is perhaps the greatest psychedelic album of all time, one that is as pertinent today as it was back in the wonderful days of 1967.

Bush nominated federal appeals court Judge Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court, beginning an ultimately but highly contentious confirmation process in which, Democrats, under the supervision of so-called “Lion of the Senate” Senator Ted Kennedy attempted to derail the nomination through cries of ‘sexual misconduct.’  Funny how Senator Kennedy would use such a challenge when he left a girl at the bottom of a lake to drown.  POS!  We assume that Senator Kennedy now burns in hell.

  55. 1996 Monday: For the people of Winnipeg, Canada, it is a sad day as the National Hockey League’s Winnipeg Jets become the frigging Phoenix Coyotes.   There’s no snow in Phoenix and certainly no ice so losing the team is an absolute affront to the Canadian hockey world.  It’s also a sad comment on how poorly the Canadian economy is doing.

  62. 2011 Friday: The 23rd U.S. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta assumed his position on this date.  A Democrat, he served under President Barack Hussein Obama from today until February 26, 2013.  
  63. 2013 Monday: America commemorates the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg.  Elsewhere, the ‘Great One,” (yeah, right) President Barack Hussein Obama, during a visit to Tanzania, brushed aside sharp European criticism, suggesting that ALL nations spy on each other as the French and Germans expressed outrage over allegations of U.S. eavesdropping on European Union diplomats.  It has become clear that President Obama and his administration spied on ALMOST EVERYONE around the world via the NSA.
  64. 2014 Tuesday: Japan updates its constitution so that its self-defense forces can assist in the defense of allied nations coming under attack by foreign enemies.  However, the change has nothing to do with sending military assets on foreign military adventurism.  Elsewhere, David Greenglass, the star witness in the trial of his sister Ethel Rosenberg and her husband, Julius, died in New York City at age 92.  Ethel and Julius Rosenberg underwent execution via the electric chair in 1953 for conspiring to pass secrets about the atomic bomb to the Soviet Union; Greenglass served 10 years in prison for espionage followed by years of living under an assumed name.
  65. 2015 Wednesday: Debt-rating giant, Moody’s, downgrades Greece to a Caa3 rating following the nation skipping out on a $1.6 billion debt bailout repayment to the International Monetary Fund.  In four days, the Greek people will head to the polls to vote on whether they should accept austerity measures in exchange for a financial bailout or tell the IMF to go F*** off.  
  66. 2016 Friday: In the worst terrorist attack in Bangladesh in years, Islamic terrorists’ takeover a café in Dhaka, taking numerous hostages and driving others away from the foodservice operation.  In the ensuing violence, they murder 20 hostages and two cops which makes it the country’s worst such incidence.  Not good.  Ah, got to love the so-called “religion of peace.”
  67. 2017 Saturday: In Sinaloa, Mexico, Mexican law enforcement gets the jump on the drug traffickers killing 19 narcoterrorists in the assault.  Meanwhile, thanks to the backing of communist China, Ethiopian hack Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus takes over as the boss of the World Health Organization.  Less than three years later, his stunning ineptitude as well as his subservient status to Beijing would cause the COVID-19 Wuhan Bat Flu to sweep the world, killing hundreds of thousands and leaving many lives destroyed.  Thank you, People’s Republic of China, thank you.
  68. 2018 Sunday: Mexican voters- angry over corruption and narco-trafficker violence, elected leftist Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador as president.  Meanwhile, Canada began imposing tariffs on $12.6 billion in U.S. goods in retaliation for the Trump administration’s new taxes on steel and aluminum imported to the United States. 
  69. 2019 Monday: In Kabul, Afghanistan, as if to spit in the eye of the U.S.-led peace process, Taliban jihadists launch a major attack which leaves more than 100 dead and injured.  Elsewhere, after 30 years of NOT whaling, Japan returns to the high seas to begin hunting whales once again.  They claim it’s part of their heritage.
  70. 2020 Wednesday: Two Republican senators- Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and James Lankford of Oklahoma- have written a bill that will abolish- we repeat, ABOLISH- Columbus Day and will replace it with Juneteenth.  While nothing is wrong with making Juneteenth a federal holiday, abolishing Columbus Day to appease a left-wing communist mob is f**king insane.  Stop pandering to communists, you pathetic morons.  We will remember you and will add you to the infamous list upon which, Mitt Romney, another RINO POS of pandering s**t is a member.  Do not negate the nation’s history, either good or bad, or suffer negation yourselves.  Meanwhile, NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio announces a $1 billion cut to the NYPD’s budget, even with murders and violent crimes skyrocketing.  WTF?
  71. 2020 Wednesday A: Here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 10,512,383 confirmed cases, 512,331 confirmed deaths, and 5,387,249 confirmed recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 2,732,594 confirmed cases, UP by 52,633 new cases, 130,030 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,338 new deaths, and 840,649 confirmed recoveries, UP by 14,688 new recoveries.   Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 232,657 confirmed cases, 6,090 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 917 confirmed cases, 18 confirmed deaths, and 736 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 33,264 confirmed cases, 1,339 confirmed deaths, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.

Trump to rescind his recent executive order with which, he temporarily stops the vast numbers of guest workers entry to the country because in this time of a downturned economy, Americans should have first crack at ALL jobs and not imported illegals.  We hope the president will also deport Sundar Pichai and his family, whether born in the USA or not, because he is a scumbag who closed our blogs.
  73. 2021 Thursday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 183,427,884 confirmed cases, +45,063, 3,971,594 confirmed deaths, +8,770 and 167,936,124 confirmed recoveries, +380,535.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 34,561,403 confirmed cases, UP 20,558 from yesterday’s reporting, 620,645 confirmed deaths, UP 396, [viii] and 29,052,087 confirmed recoveries, UP 25,399.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.

[xv]        
  78. 2021 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.284 per gallon, $3.007 in Florida, $4.022 in Hawaii, and $3.763 in Washington state. [xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Pennsylvania: $3.205.  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- Madagascar: $4.058 per U.S. Gallon. [xvii] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,472,531,378,078 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii] 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 Mexico, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Kuwait with $47 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.
  79. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is a BIG DAY for ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, this is her 100th day as the ‘Border Czar’ and her SIXTH DAY since visiting the El Paso, Texas, sector of the southern border.  Apparently, her staff finds her absolutely detestable which is easy to comprehend.  Here are the statistics as compiled by One America News regarding both the cost and the numbers of illegal alien invasion.  If you are ready, let us share them with you now: (1) Cost this Day of the Invasion: $491,311,648.  Imagine if this money was redistributed to veterans, the homeless, and Americans traumatized by the Wuhan Flu?  Hell, it could even pay reparations to the descendants of slavery.  Next, (2) Total Cost this Year of the Illegal Alien Invasion: $198,847,528,960.  Next, (3) here are the numbers of illegals who have invaded the United States this year: 2,038,028.  Soon, they will all be Democratic voters (unless the Republicans awaken to the danger and begin registering all of them as Republicans).  Finally, (4) here is the number of illegals estimated to be currently living in the country now, note- a conservative number: 36,038,028.  We have said since the inception of this blog back in 2009 that there were THEN between 35-50 million whereas now in 2021, we estimate there are between 75-100 million illegals living in the country now.  This is pure insanity.  (Sources: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT). 
  80. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– As the ‘Border Czar’ continues driving her staff members to the point of insanity, fentanyl seizures continue in record numbers along the southern border, fentanyl, by the way, manufactured in communist China.   We learned something else today about ‘Border Czar’ Harris that when she went to Guatemala and to Mexico, the people called her “Que-Mala Kamala,” meaning ‘how bad Kamala.’  Now that’s hilarious.  In other news, it’s official, South Dakota is sending National Guard troops and law enforcement to the southern border to help Texas.
  81. 2021 Thursday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– One communist thug to another: Kim Jong Un of North Korea praised the Chinese Communist Party for its centennial celebrations.  He promised to boost the strategic relationship between the two totalitarian comrades.   However, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says that the world ‘cannot forget the Chi-Com brutality.’  Speaking of thugs, another thug, Vladimir Putin, made it official today when he signed a bill into law that would force BIG TECH/SOCIAL MEDIA entities to open official offices within Russia.  Excellent.  In other news, RINO GOP senators are pushing slobbering Joe Biden to end Trump-era trade wars so business can return to usual
  82. 2021 Thursday I: Foreign News / Overseas News II– In other news, new reports suggest that the Chi-Coms are building new ICBM missile silos which says we are indeed in a new ‘Cold War,’ one that could easily go HOT and with slobbering Joe in the White House, ai-yi-yi.

  84. : Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Democratic-Socialists cannot run elections.  We learned that from Iowa in 2020 and we are learning it now in the disastrous mess in New York City in the mayoral race.  Election leaders met secretly to see if they could somehow make things right, but no one knows who the winner will be and the results aren’t expected anytime soon.  In the meantime, they are all jockeying around to see if they can steal the election from those deserving of it and to give it someone who simply is not.  Stay tuned.
  85. 2021 Thursday L: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden went to Surfside, Florida, today to visit with the family members of the victims of the condominium collapse.  It was a cordial visit, and it appeared his anti-Alzheimer’s medications were working well.  Bully for us. 
  86. : Political News I– It appears that the Dems’ scheme of court-packing is collapsing just as their attempt to overthrow the nation’s elections system by putting it under federal control- like in a banana republic.  In other political news, the largest teachers’ union in the country is going to invest into opposition research into ALL who oppose Criminal Race Theory, uh, excuse us, “Critical Race Theory.”  What does this tell you?  That CRT is more communist claptrap.   Dr. Ben Carson told Newsmax today that CRT is a ‘bunch of crap.’
  87. 2021 Thursday N: Political News II- Rep. Buddy Carter, R-GA 1st CD, says that IF NFL star Hershel Walker does not run for the U.S. Senate seat that crackpot Marxist ‘Reverend’ Rafael Warnock, he sure the hell will.  Good.  He would make an awesome senator.   In other political news, RINO Nikki Haley says that the GOP is ‘too lenient’ when it comes to Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, CPUSA-MN 5th CD.  (Note- we believe she needs to be stripped of her citizenship and deported back to Somalia or whatever other s—hole country she came from- ingrate!)
  88. 2021 Thursday O: U.S. Supreme Court News I– In a 6-3 vote in the U.S. Supreme Court today, the high court upheld Arizona’s new election laws, ones that forbid BALLOT HARVESTING as well as allows for the discarding of votes cast in the WRONG PRECINCT.  Excellent.  Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich says, ‘of course the court would uphold Arizona’s voting laws.’   In other big SCOTUS news, the Supreme Court tossed on the garbage heap the California ‘donor disclosure’ law that forced those who donated to politicians, parties, and causes to have their names and addresses published.  Excellent.
  89. 2021 Thursday P: Joe Biden Regime News I– The CBO projects the federal deficit will hit $3 trillion this year with more to come.  How nice.  In other Biden regime news, the U.S. is going after 17 countries who do nothing about human trafficking and who must be held to account.
  90. 2021 Thursday Q: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– Famed legal scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz says that ‘Bill Cosby should NEVER have been prosecuted in the first place.’  We concur.  In other news, fired Fox News Channel host Ed Henry is suing his former employer over the channel firing or silencing conservative commentators and hosts.  In other crime news, the Chicago City Council is demanding a hearing on rising crime after Mayor Lori “Frog-Face” Lightfoot got into it with pundits over how increased violent crime in the Windy City was NOT HER FAULT.  Lying bi**h.  Finally, the Boy Scouts of America have settled $850 million lawsuit over former scoutmasters molesting and raping boys.
  91. 2021 Thursday R: Big Tech News– A judge struck down Florida’s law that reined in social media companies, one that would not permit them to ban people sans any posting of official rules that can bring about a suspension or termination as in the case of President Donald J. Trump.
  92. 2021 Thursday SWeather News I– Tropical Storm Elsa is the 5th named storm to form in the Atlantic this year.
  93. 2021 Thursday T: U.S. House Of Representatives News I– Nonagenarian U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, she with the National Geographic-style pendulous breasts hanging down to her waist finished setting up her BOGUS select House committee to look into the events caused by her on January 06, 2021, at the U.S. Capitol.  Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd CD, commented on this sham ‘committee’ today at his weekly press conference.  The House minority leader said that ‘it’s very strange that “Mumbles” Pelosi appointed so-called ‘Republican’ Rep. Liz Cheney, Wyoming, to the committee as the ONLY Republican.  He said it was strange that HE did not make the appointment because on select committees the party head does the appointing.  Not so here.   Speaking of this mess, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th CD, says ‘Mumbles’ ‘select committee’ is ‘impeachment round 3.’  Yup.  Rep. Greg Steube, R-FL 17th CD, says that ‘Mumbles’ committee is strictly a partisan exercise.
  94. 2021 Thursday U: President Donald J. Trump News– President Trump told Newsmax today that he has ‘never been a fan’ of Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell and that the leader has ‘gone rogue.’  Amen.
  95. 2021 Thursday V: California State News– Democrats in San Jose, California, have passed gun laws requiring all firearms dealers and legal gun owners to possess liability insurance so when the inevitable lawsuits come, the insurance companies can pay out vast amounts of money.  This appears to be yet another money-go-round for the Democrats.

  98. 2021 Thursday Y: New York State News– Manhattan D.A. Cyrus Vance Jr. slapped handcuffs on Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg and paraded him before the news cameras in yet another show of going after all-things ‘Trump’ and finding someone- anyone- who might flip.  The New York Post says this is ‘banana republic-style stuff.’  However, news reports inform the American people that all this crap-assed persecution is strengthening both the 45th president and his supporters.
  99. 2021 Thursday Z: Sports News I– The NCAA will allow student athletes to profit off their names, images, and likenesses.
  100. 2022 Friday: We will see what happens today and when we do, we will share it with everyone.  However, we will do our best to remain one step ahead of the Joestapo.  Meanwhile, a grateful nation celebrates as homosexual pride month is now in the books and normal folks can go about their business without being bombarded by a barrage of constant gay this and gay that.  Enough is f**king enough already, unlike every other religious, ethnic, or racial minority, being gay is 99.99-percent a choice.  The other miniscule percentile could be born that way but before scientists find the elusive gay gene, NO one can say otherwise.  Period.  -Chef Brian C.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys next studio album, “Summer in Paradise,” came out on August 03, 1992.  The band was a quartet now featuring Mike Love, Carl Wilson, Bruce Johnston, and Alan Jardine on vocals.  Johnston also provided keyboards, but the musicianship was provided by a stable of studio and touring musicians.  Although imbued with a ‘green theme,’ the album was not well-received and sold poorly which is sad.  Still, compared with other groups with the same lifespan, the band still finds time to write, record, and tour, always touring.  We hope you will seek this one out, especially for the novelty of the opening track, Sly and the Family Stone’s “Hot Fun in the Summertime.”  Besides new tunes, there are also several covers which makes this one yet another must-own for completists.  Seek it out, give it a listen, and incorporate into your collection of the best in music.
