1978 Thursday: The neo-Nazis call off their march through Skokie, Illinois. For weeks leading up to their planned march through a Jewish neighborhood filled with Holocaust survivors, there was major uproar across the nation and the world. Even the ACLU defended the Nazis planned march through Skokie. They finally called it off when the threat of anti-Nazi violence became so intense, they decided it wasn’t worth the trouble.

  63. 2018 Friday: White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked to leave a Virginia restaurant; the co-owner said the move came at the request of homosexual employees who objected to Sanders’ defense of President Donald J. Trump’s effort to bar transgender people from the military.  Meanwhile, in that well-known ‘bastion of freedom,’ communist China, Chinese social media blocks comedian John Oliver after he mocks Xi Jinping, now president for life.  Ah, gee, can’t take a little ribbing?  Communists lack senses of humor.
  64. 2019 Saturday: A coup attempt in Ethiopia fails with four government officials- including Army Chief of Staff General Seare Mekonnen.  Meanwhile, the United States announces that it’s going to slap additional sanctions on Iran so as to prohibit them from ever obtaining nuclear weapons.
  65. 2020 Monday: Law enforcement in Chicago reports that over the Father’s Day weekend, 102 people were shot, 14 died, including a 3-year-old boy sitting in his father’s car.  Yet NO one is marching in the streets attacking the murderous thugs who commit these heinous crimes, NO one.  They only care when a white cop shots a black brother.  WTF, Chicago?  Wake the f**k up and stop this black-on-black genocide.  Meanwhile, Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkin announces a plan to reclaim CHOP from the riotous scum inhabiting this area.  Two people were shot in the Occupied Zone over the weekend with one death.  Have the cops cleaned this human pond scum OUT?  Finally, in Washington, D.C., violent mobs attempt to tear down the statue of General and President Andrew Jackson, the man who won the Battle of New Orleans in the War of 1812 and then became president.  In response to the growing Chinese-funded (or so we hear) unrest, the White House evacuated all reporters.  No one seems capable of stopping the communists.  Americans will have to do it for the trembling GOP politicians.
  66. 2020 Monday A: The Xi Jinping Bat Flu continues running amok, taking names and lives.  Thank you, communist China, thank you.  Here are today’s stats: 8,546,919 confirmed cases, 456,726 confirmed deaths, and 4,195,274 confirmed recoveries.  Here are the stats for the United States, thanks to communist China: 2,350,756 confirmed cases, 122,085 confirmed deaths, and 732,227 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which, we have chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 178,054 confirmed cases, 5,515 confirmed deaths, but as usual, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  In the Aloha State, here are the numbers: 814 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 651 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Evergreen State, home of Jenny Durkin and CHOP, here are the stats: 28,834 confirmed cases, 1,276 confirmed deaths, and like California, Jay Inslee releases NO number of the confirmed recoveries.

  72. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.238 per gallon, $2.940 in Florida, $3.981 in Hawaii, and $3.640 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Nebraska: $2.906.  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- Peru: $3.853 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,436,907,638,042 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 Norway, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Thailand with $80 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position).[xix]
  73. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Friends, today is Day No. 91 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka the gibbering orangutan, to be in charge of the out-of-control border calamity and to have yet shown up for a single day on the job.  Where is this corrupt woman?  Why won’t she show up and do the job that Joe Biden’s earpiece bestowed on her?   Speaking of the chittering hyena, 56 Republican congressmen-and-women have signed a letter demanding the prattling loser known as “Willie Brown’s Mattress” be removed from her gig as ‘border czar.’  Meanwhile, former CBP commissioner Mark Morgan says the Biden regime’s ending of Title 42 of the public health order to turn away sick illegals back to whence they came is sending the wrong message to the ongoing tidal wave of illegal aliens.
  74. 2021 Tuesday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– As violence continues to explode across Afghanistan, the Biden regime reaffirms the U.S. troop withdrawal will continue.  Elsewhere, Carrie Lam- Beijing’s stooge running Hong Kong- says she backs the Chi-Com crackdown on pro-democracy press outlets.  In other foreign and overseas news, conservative British icon Nigel Farage told Newsmax ‘don’t trust anything Boris Johnson says.’  Amen.  BoJo seems like a political hack.
  75. 2021 Tuesday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says that ‘only strong leadership in Washington, D.C., can prevent another Chi-Com lab-engineered pandemic.’  It’s not going to happen as long as decrepit Joe Biden continues to reside in the White House.  Dr. Peter Daszak- president of the EcoHealth Alliance- has been removed from the Lancet’s COVID-19 origins commission as more and more evidence continues coming to light about the Chinese Communist Party’s close ties with the corrupt doctor- the net continues closing around Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci and his minions.   Moving on, the White House now thinks it’s not going to reach its vaccination goal of getting most Americans at least one jab by July 4, Independence Day.  Folks, none of us- and more importantly- most of our loved ones- are not going to get the damned shots.
  76. 2021 Tuesday I: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News–  President Donald J. Trump says that he has NOT conceded the 2020 Presidential Election nor should he.
  77. 2021 Tuesday J: Joe Biden News– One America News reported this morning that Joe Biden can no longer address the news media according to his handlers.  His nursemaids have told him to zip his lip and avoid speaking to the press.  Okay.  When can reporters speak to the voice in his EARPIECE?  The earpiece is the REAL president.  Many believe it’s another illegitimate president, #44.
  78. 2021 Tuesday K: Political News I– A Harvard CAPS-Harris poll says that ’52-percent of Americans (a slim majority, most likely heavily weighted in favor of Democrats) believe that usurper Joe Biden made some headway with Russia’s Vladimir Putin when the two world leaders met.  Uh, okay.  Even though polling elsewhere says differently, Gallup Polling reports that 56-percent of the American people (99.99-percent Democrat-weighted) approves of the job that the ‘drooler-in-chief’ Joe Biden is doing.  What job?  Who has seen him since he returned from Europe?  He can’t even speak to the press anymore.  WTF?
  79. 2021 Tuesday L: Political News II– A recent poll of possible GOP nominees for 2024 should President Donald J. Trump not seek a third term shows that former South Carolina governor and ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, is around the bottom of potential candidates.  Go figure.   IF President Trump does not seek a third term, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis will win the job hands-down, folks.
  80. 2021 Tuesday M: Political News III– An Iowa court permanently blocks the state’s 24-hour waiting period prior to getting an abortion.  Take the case to the appellate level and then to the high court if need be.   Elsewhere, a New Jersey school district says it will revisit its plan to erase ALL holiday names on its scholastic calendars.  Meanwhile, two Georgia counties recover costs from President Donald J. Trump’s election lawsuit challenges.   In other political news, ‘climate protesters’ protesting outside Senator Ted Cruz’s home in Houston, Texas, became unruly (go figure) leading to the arrests of eight of the little pansies.
  81. 2021 Thursday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– Watchdog group, Protect the Public’s Trust is urging federal prosecutors to investigate ‘Joe Biden’s’ nominee to head the Bureau of Land Management (BLM)- Tracy Stone-Manning alleging she has misled the Congress over a tree-spiking scheme back in 1989 to put an Idaho forest off-limits to loggers.  She claims no involvement in the matter when it looks as if she was heavily involved.  This woman cannot be confirmed to this post, there are already too many nuts employed in this ersatz regime starting at the very top.  Anyone who would ‘spike’ trees with iron rods so as to damage saws and injure people is unfit for any post, even dog catcher.
  82. 2021 Thursday O: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Outrage continues to grow over Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, DS-RI, longtime membership in a WHITES ONLY Rhode Island beach club.  When questioned about his membership, he more or less waved it off.  However, were the offender a Republican, fake news channels around the world would be on fire.  (Note- let us imagine if it were President Donald J. Trump or one of his family members that was a member of an exclusive all-WHITE club- can you imagine the riots that would explode across the country as the paid thugs of Antifa and Black Lives Matter took to the streets and do what they do best- sow division, mayhem, and violence?  Yet, no one says a peep about the slow-witted Senator Whitehouse.  Why is that?)  In other Woke News, singer Billie Eilish[xx] is begging forgiveness after a video resurfaced showing her mouthing racist slurs.  What is it with all these WOKIES who have racist, homophobic skeletons in their closets?
  83. 2021 Tuesday P: Whacked-Out News of the Day– Portland, Oregon, is planning a big ad buy so it can encourage tourists to visit their devastated city.  Come, and see the mob violence, come, and see burning buildings, looted stores, come participate in the nailing in of federal law enforcement officers into government buildings and then see them set ablaze.  What the hell is wrong with these people?  Who the f**k wants to visit a once-lovely city on the Pacific coast which has become loony tunes local?  The leftists running amok in the city must be rounded up and sent to slave labor camps for purification of their souls.  Arbeit Macht Frei!  Losers… In other whacked-out news, prosecutors are looking into charging Roger Stone with inciting a riot because he happened to be in Washington, D.C., on January 6, 2021, and was seen taking selfies with numerous fans.  Wow.  Is that all it takes to be charged with a crime in Joe Biden’s America?  Whoa…
  84. 2021 Tuesday Q: Big Tech News– The Center for American Liberty files a lawsuit against both Twitter and Senator Alex Padilla (then California secretary of state), D-CA, over their collusion in deciding what speech would be censored regarding the 2020 Presidential Election.  Sue the living crap out of both Twitter and the appointed senator.  Meanwhile, Rep.  Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district, says that Microsoft is ‘out to get conservatives.’  In other BIG TECH NEWS, despite being banned from Facebook (like that’s a BIG DEAL, Team Trump advertisements continue to appear on the ‘social media’ (intelligence-gathering site for the Chi-Coms) site.
  85. 2021 Tuesday R: Health And Medical Alerts– A new report says that nursing home deaths skyrocketed last year going up by an astonishing 32-percent, most of them occurring in three BLUE states: California, Washington, and New York thanks to governors who sought to do some social (and economic) engineering by knocking off the elderly, the infirm, and the mentally incapacitated which would allow them to save money- much like the Nazis did during the 1930s- and its diversion into WOKE programs.
  86. 2021 Tuesday S: NASA, Space, and UFO News– NASA is begging for a $5 billion cash infusion from the Joe Biden regime for infrastructure related to its future space missions.  NASA boss Bill Nelson is begging his old Senate pal, slobbering Joe Biden for the miniscule amount which we suspect he’s NOT going to get.  Joe Biden wants the Russians and Chi-Coms to become the dominant space powers.
  87. 2021 Tuesday T: U.S. Senate News I– Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, says he ‘favors debating the H.R. 1 / S. 1 ‘voting rights election grab bill’ which the Republicans say they will oppose with all their might.   The voting bill appears as though it’s on life support which had progressives blasting the Biden regime for failing them.  Wow.  Regarding this power grab, Senator Mike Lee, R-UT, says the GOP will ‘do everything it can to stop this crap bill from becoming law.’  Next, Senator Susan Collins, RINO-ME, says that she will ‘vote against’ Joe Biden’s nominee for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms (and Explosives) David A. Chipman.  Chipman is flipping crazy, he wants to seize all firearms.  Not going to happen.   Meanwhile, a vote on War Powers in the Senate now won’t happen until sometime in July.
  88. 2021 Tuesday U: U.S. Senate News II– Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, who led the failed fight to stop race-baiter Joe Biden nominee for the Office of Personnel Management- Kiran Ahuja- will ‘bring a new era of racial engineering into the federal government.’  In other U.S. Senate news, Joe Biden’s aides fled the world’s greatest deliberative body after being incapable of arriving at some sort of deal on ‘infrastructure.’  Update, the U.S. Senate votes to BLOCK further debate on the “For the People Act.”  Excellent.  Elsewhere, Senator Kyrsten Sinema, D-AZ, won’t back down from her position defending the Senate filibuster rule as it is important for BOTH PARTIES down the road.  Good for you.
  89. 2021 Tuesday V: Fake News– U.S. takes down Iran-linked news websites, citing disinformation.  The Iranians threaten, “WE KILL YOU!  WE KILL YOU!” like Jeff Dunham’s Achmed the Dead Terrorist.  F**k the Iranians.
  90. 2021 Tuesday W: Texas State News– Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, Republican, says that Texas stepping up to build the border wall is on behalf of all Americans, not just those living in the Lone Star State.
  91. 2021 Tuesday X: Economic News– Rep. Ron Estes, R-KS 4th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden is creating a massive economic crisis.’
  92. 2021 Tuesday Y: Sports News– The Harlem Globetrotters have requested to join the National Basketball Association.  IF the NBA adds them, they will become the dominant team and they also have women on the team so how would the NBA respond to that?  Merge with the WNBA?  Now that would be something because then, they could add some additional teams to towns deserving of them like Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, San Diego, Seattle, Honolulu, Oildale, and…Beijing.
  93. 2021 Tuesday Z: U.S. Military News– We learned today that Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada this past June 17 held the first-ever DRAG QUEEN show for benefit of U.S. military personnel stationed there.  WTF, people, are we becoming the ‘ancient Greeks?’  Must we hope for the Chi-Coms, the Russians, or even the jihadists to take over so we can end this frigging madness?  Enough is f**king enough already, folks, this is insane.  Elsewhere, a World War II Medal of Honor recipient was able to see his grandson graduate from boot camp.
  94. 2021 Tuesday AA: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Stick around for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1670 with a $40 million pot on the line.  Here are the numbers: 01, 26, 48, 51, 59, and Mega 25.  Out of 46,604 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $12,455.
  95. 2022 Wednesday: Today is Day #518 of the illegal Joe Biden regime.  They can tell us we’re all crazy but we know the truth.  There are not enough prisons with which to imprison everyone unless they invite in Chi-Com troops to patrol the streets…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next studio album by the Beach Boys- their 25th if we are keeping track- is the self-titled “The Beach Boys,” an album that came out on June 10, 1985.  Unfortunately, while we have defended other albums in their catalog that others pan like the losers they are, we cannot defend this one.  Recorded and released after the drowning death of an inebriated Dennis Wilson, the album simply lacked the punch others possessed.  The band now featured Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), and Bruce Johnston (vocals and bass).  A cast of ‘thousands’ rounded out the lineup including many of the touring members, among others.  The only song upon which we will comment is the opener: “Getcha Back.”  Penned obviously to harken back to the ‘good old days,’ it’s a decent track but not worth the investment of your hard, cold cash.  Still, seek it out on mp3 and consider downloading it so you can listen to a moment in musical history and then move onward.

  57. 2005 Friday: Following a grueling investigation, the UN confirms that yes, indeed, former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri was among the dead when a truck bomb detonated near where he was.  What the hell is it with these people and their frigging bombs?  Oh, we know, ‘some people they do something.’

  66. 2014 Tuesday: All hell breaks out in Kenya at the village of Poromoko as Al-Shabab militants descend on the town killing 15 people outright, wounding numerous others, dragging still others off into the surrounding countryside after they burn down most of the houses.  What a bunch of barbarians.  Locate them and crucify them.   Elsewhere, as fighting with ISIS continues in Iraq, the U.S. military sends another 275 military personnel to defend the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad. 
  67. 2015 Wednesday: A scumbag named Dylann Roof entered a historic African American church in Charleston, South Carolina, and murdered nine people with a handgun.  Roof managed to get away but the police found and arrested him the following morning.  Convicted of federal hate crimes, he received the death sentence; however, the punk later pleaded guilty to state murder charges and received a sentence of life without parole.  Should have shot him like the ignorant mad dog that he is.
  68. 2016 Friday: After much bloodshed and heavy fighting, the Iraqi army bulldozes its way into the main government center of embattled Fallujah.  The ISIS scumbags are clinging to rubble but the Iraqis are determined to liberate their city and exterminate their barbaric foes.  Meanwhile, California Burning: a massive wildfire in Santa Barbara County explodes during the hours of darkness, going from 2,000 acres to an appalling 4,000.  Once again, this demonstrates the stupidity of one-party, liberal, Democratic-Socialist rule that is intent on trashing the state through poor forest management and ignorant water policies.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 298,516 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 161,133 deaths  
  76. 2021 Thursday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,806,205 confirmed cases, 63,259 confirmed deaths, and 2,068,914 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,352,995 confirmed cases, 37,448 confirmed deaths, and 2,131,508 confirmed recoveries, more or less the SAME numbers.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 37,170 confirmed cases, 507 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 448,160 confirmed cases, 5,843 confirmed deaths, and 220,640 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Mississippi: they have 319,704 confirmed cases, 7,369 confirmed deaths, and 310,189 confirmed recoveries.[xxii]

  79. 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 $4.227 per gallon, $2.957 in Florida, $3.976 in Hawaii, and $3.628 in Washington state.[xxviii]    Let’s look at one other location- Missouri: $2.756.  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- Mozambique: $3.794 per U.S. Gallon.[xxix]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,417,914,125,896 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxx]  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 Singapore, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Saudi Arabia with $136 and 180 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).[xxxi]
  80. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– By our count, today is Day #86 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the southern border and has yet to show up.  Fire this laughing orangutan.  Next, former CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan believes that other states will follow suit and begin deploying law enforcement officers to aid in protecting our southern border as “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis, R-FL, has in sending Sunshine State law enforcement to aid his fellow governors in Texas and Arizona.   Speaking of Florida and the border, Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody, Republican, is calling on other states to follow the lead of her state and to send law enforcement officers to the border states to help repel the illegal alien invasion.
  81. 2021 Thursday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– The European Union creates Chi-Vi vaccine passports so citizens of the international body can travel freely between member states.  Americans seeking to travel in Europe will also have to be able to prove vaccination status, proof of antibodies related to previous infection, or recent negative COVID-19 tests; otherwise, YOU can’t come to the EU.  (Note- F**k the EU).  Next, Ryanair is suing Great Britain over new travel restrictions ahead of the busy summer travel season.
  82. 2021 Thursday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information– Rep. Rob Wittman, R-VA 1st congressional district, told Newsmax that a new bill will hold the Chi-Coms wholly responsible for letting loose on the world the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Meanwhile, even as more and more evidence continues to come out showing that the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines are harmful to human beings due to toxic ingredients, Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci says the government is going to dump $3.2 billion into creating antiviral pills.  (Note- Dr. “Phony Tony,”[xxxii] how much of that $3.2 billion will go into YOUR pockets?)  Elsewhere, as the Delta variant of the ‘VID continues to spread, federal government is doubling down on everyone to get vaccinated with the yet-to-be-approved by the FDA vaccines.  Friends, when drug manufacturers have QUALIFIED IMMUNITY stripped away from them (as it should be from the Chi-Coms in the World Court) and people affected negatively by their products can sue them, we might consider getting inoculated then.
  83. 2021 Thursday I: Joe Biden News–  Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says the recent ‘Putin-Biden summit’ shows how Russian leader Vladimir Putin is testing the Biden regime.  Meanwhile, Fred H. Fleitz, CEO of the Center for Security Policy, affirms this by saying that the ‘recent summit between Russia’s leader and (dimwitted) Joe Biden harmed U.S. security.’  (Note- Joe Biden told Mr. Putin NOT to hack into 16 industries or companies which means the other ones are on the table).   Rep. Mike Turner, R-OH 10th congressional district, said of ‘Joe’s summit’ that he had ‘no real goals for his meeting with Vladimir Putin.’  In other regime news, the U.S. Department of Justice is dropping the lawsuit against former Donald J. Trump White House adviser John “Endless Wars” Bolton’s book, “The Room Where it Happened.”
  84. 2021 Thursday J: Political News I– Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, has introduced a bill with which to abolish the ATF- the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms (and Explosives).  Meanwhile, a new poll says that ’74-percent of Republican voters support state-wide election audits.’  Amen.  We suspect it’s higher than that.   Meanwhile, U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas says questions regarding ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris’ failure to visit the southern border in 86 flipping days no less are both ‘unfair’ and ‘disrespectful.’  F**k her and f**k YOU.
  85. 2021 Thursday K: Political News II– Mark and Patricia McCloskey, the St. Louis couple who defended their home from violent Black Lives Matter fecal matter protesters a summer ago pled guilty to misdemeanors to get this bogus case off their backs.  When BLM trash knocked the gates of their private community and threatened them and their pets with rape, death, and the burning down of their property, the duo grabbed their guns, went outside, and stood in front of their home armed and ready to go.  YET, they NEVER once pointed their legally-owned firearms at the thugs creating havoc in their neighborhood.  God bless them and let’s see the BLM thugs hauled before court and given some stiff prison sentences.
  86. 2021 Thursday L: Political News III– Conservative political activists in Michigan are demanding an Arizona-style 2020 Election audit.  Next, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the ‘Gropin’ Gov’ celebrates the end of the pandemic with a massive show of fireworks in the Big Apple.  Both he and NYC Mayor Bill ‘Bag O’ Fries’ Di Blasio are in a celebratory mood after driving the state and the city into economic collapse.  Elsewhere, J. Chuck Todd, the little snowflake says of 2020 Election fraud proponents that if they don’t accept the premise the election was honest, ‘it’s going to be a painful interview.’  J. Chuck- F— you.
  87. 2021 Thursday M: U.S. Supreme Court News– By a vote of 7-2, the United States Supreme Court shagged off another GOP challenge to Obamacare.  Go figure.  (Note- as long as John Roberts serves as chief justice, we will NEVER get this evil monstrosity off the backs of the American people.  The Biden regime crows that ‘SCOTUS NOT overturning Obamacare is a BFD’).  However, the case was rejected on STANDING and not on the MERITS of the case.  Next, the Supreme Court stands up for the Catholic Church as it rebuffs a lawsuit brought by LGBTQIA+ fascists seeking to destroy a Catholic charity placing kids with foster parents.  The gays want foster kids placed in homosexual homes which the charity says goes against the teachings of the church.  We concur.
  88. 2021 Thursday N: Business News– After soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo pushes Coca-Cola aside and endorses water, the soft drink manufacturer’s stock tumbles by $4 billion in value.  (Note- we say ‘F**K woke corporations, they get what they deserve.  Soft drinks are nonessential foods; no, people choose to drink them just as we can un-choose to drink them and even better, carry them in our restaurants and foodservice operations.  Screw them).
  89. 2021 Thursday O: Joe Biden Regime News I– There is a growing outcry for the Biden regime to release information related as to HOW MANY undercover agents of various federal law enforcement agencies helped carry out the FALSE FLAG OPERATION the world had the misfortune to see on January 6, 2021, when Antifa and Black Lives Matter human fecal matter infiltrated the peaceful ranks of Trump supporters and turned a peaceful gathering into a riotous, violent mob, one dimwits like Joe Biden still claim ‘killed a cop.’   Speaking of these more than 450 poor souls locked up in solitary confinement, most are not expected to go to trial until sometime within the next 2-3 years.
  90. 2021 Thursday P: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– As the Derek Chauvin defense team continues its push toward demanding a retrial of their client over all sorts of corrupt activities and poor-timing on behalf of the city of Minnesota, the prosecution is doing everything it can so as to avoid having to try Chauvin again.  We fully suspect that thanks to the actions of one juror who LIED on the juror questionnaire and those of Rep. Maxine “Prune Face” Waters, CPUSA-CA 43rd congressional district that NOT only will Officer Chauvin receive another trial, but he will also be acquitted which will lead the DOJ to double down on double jeopardy.
  91. 2021 Thursday Q: National Security News– The FCC says it will explore whether Chi-Com telecommunications equipment should be banned over their ties to the People’s Liberation Army.
  92. 2021 Thursday R: Environmental News I– It’s summertime and the American West and Southwest is experiencing elevated temperatures.  Morons like Sandy “The Fly” Cortez are shrieking about ‘CLIMATE CHANGE!  GLOBAL WARMING!  EXTREME WEATHER!’  Those of us who have been around for decades understand that when it’s summer in some locales, it gets flipping hot.  Enough said.  (Note- the dreadful thing is, the Climate Change dupes want to take away our air conditioning).
  93. 2021 Thursday S: U.S. House of Representatives News– U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi champions her new “Juneteenth” federal holiday making it the 12th paid federal holiday.  Drooling Joe Biden is expected to sign the bill into law.   Meanwhile, the GOP House campaign arm opens up to accepting cryptocurrency donations.  In other Democrat-dominated House news, Judiciary Committee Dems are seeking Trump-era subpoenas for data on Democrat lawmakers suspected of leaking like sieves.  Here we go again, another BOGUS investigation.
  94. 2021 Thursday T: U.S. Senate News– U.S. Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says he will pass the federal budget sans any output by Republicans.  He could give a shit whether Republicans vote for the budget or they don’t.  Meanwhile, U.S. Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell dismisses Senator Joe Manchin’s, D-W. VA, stance on voting rights.  Everyone knows spineless Senator Manchin will drop to his knees before the fawning POS majority leader and do his bidding.
  95. 2021 Thursday U: Louisiana State News– Governor John Bel Edwards, D-LA, says the state will END enhanced unemployment benefits as of July 31, 2021.  It is time for Louisianans to return to work.  NOW.
  96. 2021 Thursday V: Texas State News– Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, and leaders of both political parties held a joint news conference today in which the state will make a down payment of $250 million to begin again the construction of the border wall along the frontier with Mexico.  What we anticipate is that if Texas and Arizona begin reinforcing their borders with corrupt Mexico, illegals will flood through New Mexico and California which will cause voters in those two states to demand better border security.  The American people will no longer stand for a tidal wave of bottom-of-the-barrel illegal aliens running amok in their country.  We are contributing to the effort to secure our southern border.   (Note- we think that Governor Abbott should bring in former Sheriff Joe Arpaio to run the desert gulags for the illegal aliens- HE knows how to make people NEVER want to break the law again…).  Meanwhile, Governor Abbott signs ‘constitutional carry’ into law meaning Texans do not have to have a concealed carry permit to carry a legal firearm.
  97. 2021 Thursday W: Economic News– Unemployment numbers surged UP last month by 412,000 new claims for jobless benefits.  Oh, no, Joe, your ‘economic plans’ are collapsing the economy.  Dumb ass.
  98. 2021 Thursday X: U.S. Military News– The Associated Press reports that since 2010 the U.S. military has ‘mysteriously’ lost more than 1,900 weapons.  Say what?  
  99. 2021 Thursday Y: Observation of the Day– In other news, it is becoming increasingly clear that our military no longer has combat-qualified officers leading it but political hacks and appointees working to destabilize it and then to rebuild it as an updated version of the RED ARMY.  How soon will we see political commissars appointed to monitor the minds and actions of the soldiers?  How soon will it be before we see troops falling back from overwhelming odds being machine-gunned by their commissars?  Don’t laugh, we bet the Russian military that morphed into becoming the Red Army never thought their leaders would be more concerned with politics than with fighting and most importantly, winning wars.  We would say that this is among the reasons we spent more than 20 years in the septic tank of Afghanistan or why when President Donald J. Trump assumed office back in January 2017 that we suddenly found out we had troops in more places- like Equatorial Africa and parts of the Middle East we had no clue we had troops.  What we are seeing is a combination of the Red Army married with wealth for the top positions while everyone else must fall into line, follow the political orders of the day while paying scant attention to fighting to win against diabolical enemies.  (Note- Chef Vicky- let me know what YOU think).  (Note #2- look at NASA- now we are concerned with putting the first women and people of color on the moon?  While that’s great, what if they aren’t as skilled as other astronauts?  That is not a mission I would ever seek to participate).
  100. 2022 Friday:  Stick around and discover whatever the heck is going on today…

  67. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– By our count, today is Day #81 in which, ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been in charge of the southern border and has yet to take her hyena-laughing butt down there to see the border in person.  How long before ‘Cho-Mo Joe’ Biden asks her to step down from her post as his ‘No. 2?’  Meanwhile, One America News reports the current tally of the ILLEGAL ALIEN INVASION: (1) Cost per day of caring for the illegal alien invaders: $537,164,032.  (2) Total Cost this Year of caring for the Illegal Alien Invaders: $176,975,560,704.  Next, (3) Total Number of Illegal Aliens who have crossed the Border in 2021: 1,813,857.  Finally, (4) Total Number of River-Swimming, Fence-Climbing Illegals in the U.S.: 35,813,856.  (Note- we believe this estimate is on the extreme low end as since this blog began in 2009, we estimated anywhere from 35-50 million illegals in the United States 12 years ago.  Our updated figures rest at 50 million on the low end to 80-100 million on the high end.  The time is now to lay in electrified fencing along the border, drones armed with Hellfire missile patrolling the skies, anti-personnel ditches, vehicle and river barriers, foo gas pits, quick reaction strike forces, punji stakes and alligators in the Rio Grande, you name it, we must do it if our great country is to survive.  Elsewhere, Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, says that neither Joe nor “Kooky Kamala” can avoid the border much longer.  Get your butts down there and do something to stop the self-inflicted mess.   Finally, when Latin American reporters are questioning ‘Kooky Kamala” on WHY no visits to the border, she goes ballistic and shows her bitchy side.
  68. 2021 Friday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– As Ethiopia continues fighting a war against violent jihadists, famine is facing its people with the loss of valuable cropland to the fighting.  Food shortages in that heroic East African nation are becoming critical.  Next, aggressive Russian warplanes have intercepted U.S. aircraft traveling over international airspace over the Pacific Ocean.  Meanwhile, Myanmar’s military junta has charged ousted President Aung San Suu Kyi with all sorts of corruption charges.  Elsewhere, economic whiz Peter Navarro says the ‘G7 leaders see ‘Cho-Mo Joe’ Biden as ‘weak, manipulatable.’ Speaking of the G7, Queen Elizabeth II hosts a dinner for mumbling, stumbling, crumbling ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden.  Bet that conversation was elucidating.   Also in regard to the G7, former Trump administration official Ric Grenell says German leader Angela Merkel is a ‘great leader’ but that ‘Germany must pay its share.’  Elsewhere, a former chief of the Mossad says that Israel is definitely behind the troubles the Iranian nuclear program has currently been experiencing.  (Note- we would love to see the Mossad set off a nuke underneath Tehran.  Now that would be something to see.  We might even see it on pay-per-view).
  69. 2021 Friday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, is raising new questions over the unscientific Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci’s demand that ‘we follow the science’ when it comes to combatting the Wuhan Virus.  Elsewhere, we learn from Dr. Roger Seheult, a critical care physician, that since the start of the pandemic, 314 children have been victims.  Now, as evidence rises that vaccinating young people with these so-called ‘vaccines,’ young boys and teenagers are being beset by myocarditis.  This leads to questions as to WHY we must give these untested ‘vaccines’ to our kids, especially when the drug makers have ‘qualified immunity’ meaning they cannot be sued for any problems associated with their vaccines.  The bulk of the problems come soon after the administering of the second dose, like poor “Hammering Hank” Aaron, one of the great baseball players of all time who died directly after his second dose of this experimental, rushed-to-market vaccine.  If Donald J. Trump were still in the White House right now, there would be all kinds of demands the vaccinations STOP.  However, with the “Drooler-in-Chief” in the White House, EVERYONE must get this shot.  F*** that.
  70. 2021 Friday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Moving on, Newsmax contributor and former Lt. Governor Betsy McCaughey, R-NY, calls for the Chi-Coms- violators of international health laws as agreed to by the World Health Organization- to pay reparations to the entire world for their villainous crimes.  Regarding Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci, Rep.  Tim Burchett, R-TN 2nd congressional district, says “Phony Tony’s” flipflopping on his Chi-Vi statements is extremely ‘weird.’  Meanwhile, Rep.  Jerry Carl, R-AL 1st congressional district, wants to know if- and by extension- how much did Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci profited from his pals in China’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu?  That is a question EVERYONE should be asking…
  71. 2021 Friday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland is trying to stop the various 2020 election audits around the country.  In order to stop them, he is slandering the search for the God’s Honest Truth as well as labeling the auditors as ‘racist, bigots, you name it,’ he’s calling them it.  Let us ask ONE question: AG “The Mole” Garland: IF there is nothing on YOUR SIDE of the aisle to hide, let them proceed.  You are acting as though YOU and the regime are guilty of something like, uh, ‘voter fraud?’  Elsewhere, former Trump border bigwig, former Deputy Secretary of U.S. Homeland Security Ken Cuccinelli, says that the ‘election grab by the Democrats is part of a radical agenda.’
  72. 2021 Friday K: Joe Biden News– Joe Biden is going to redirect border wall construction funds to the military and to the cleanup of the wall-building site.  Meanwhile, as stumbling Joe Biden attends the G7 meeting where his wife, the Faux First Lady Dr. Jill Biden seems to be calling the shots, the Chi-Coms are increasing the pressure on the United States.   Next, Time magazine is taking heat for posting a cover in which they try to make vacant-eyed Joe Biden ‘cool.’  The man ain’t cool- he’s senile.  (Note- we are so glad several of us canceled our subscriptions to that once-fine news magazine.  Now, it’s on a level with Tiger Beat or other teeny-bopper magazines of old).
  73. 2021 Friday L: Political News I– A new study shows that when Democrats are asked to elucidate their views as to what exactly their party stands, a high percentage of them cannot voice a coherent answer.  Figures.  Next, RNC Chairperson Ronna McDaniel blasts the Biden regime’s ‘open borders policies.’  Meanwhile, YouTube suspends the account of Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, for sharing thoughts on alternative treatments for the lab-engineered Chi-Com virus.
  74. 2021 Friday M: Business News– Tesla begins deliveries of its new S-Plaid automobiles to buyers.  Next, a Chi-Com ride-sharing app (yet another way to channel users’ data back to the Chinese Communist Party) Didi unveils its new IPO.  Wow.  Who wants to use the Chi-Com app?  None of us.
  75. 2021 Friday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– In some shocking news today, we learn that Biden regime operatives are using a campaign of intimidation against West Point cadets who REFUSE- which is their God-given right to do so- to take the Chi-Com vaccine.  Reports suggest these cadets are being kept in solitary confinement up to 23 hours per day which is why their families are seeking out attorneys to go after this criminal act.  NO one in government in the U.S. can force anyone to put something into their bodies they don’t want.  What happened to the Pro-Death mantra: MY BODY, MY CHOICE?  (Note- the left is so hypocritical.  Stand strong West Pointers, stand strong against these fascist, totalitarian policies.  F*** them).  Meanwhile, the Biden regime has closed down an office that provided help to victims of illegal alien crime.
  76. 2021 Friday O: Joe Biden Regime News II– U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland says he is beefing up the department’s voting rights division (doubling it in fact) so as to keep a close eye on the various election audits occurring around the nation.  Mr. “AG,” IF the 2020 Elections were as clean as the wind-driven snow, then one would think you would be at the forefront of demanding they finish.  (Note- every day, the actions of the Democrats and their allies demonstrates beyond a shadow of a doubt that the 2020 Elections were the most fraudulent in the history of our country).  In other Biden regime news, with the rollback of the Clean Water Act, Joe Biden is waging war on American farmers and ranchers.
  77. 2021 Friday P: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– The Pulse Nightclub down in Florida is going to become a national heritage site or some such bull crap as that.  Back in 2016, a Muslim jihadist went into the club and killed dozens of people before taking his own life.  (Note- many believe the Muslim shooter was a closet gay).  Next, gubernatorial candidate Caitlyn Jenner blasts the hack comedian, Jimmy Kimmel, for labeling her ‘Donald J. Trump with a wig.’  Ouch.
  78. 2021 Friday Q: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the numbers for the Mega-Millions Draw #1667 with a $20 million jackpot on the line: 04, 43, 56, 63, 68, and Mega 13.  Out of 48,698 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $11,775.
  79. 2021 Friday R: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– El Chapo’s wife accepted a plea deal in federal court today in which, she cops to drug-trafficking charges but will not flip on her hubby, Joaquim Guzman, or any of his associates.  While she could face life in prison for the crimes to which, she copped, she is expected to get no more than a 9-11-year stint in federal prison.  Elsewhere, thanks to the left-wing fomented urban riots over the death of low-level thug George Floyd, new police hires across the country are way down.  This is what the Democrats want- they don’t want to get rid of law enforcement; no, they seek to federalize law enforcement so NO area will have its own police but will have cops sent from elsewhere.  Thus, they will have NO ties to the communities they serve which will permit them to commit all sorts of egregious acts against the citizens of this country.
  80. 2021 Friday S: Social Media News And Big Tech News– Ohio is pressing ahead with its lawsuit to have Google declared a public utility.  Good.  Break them up and deport Sundar Pichai and his entire family back to Punjabistan.
  81. 2021 Friday T: National Security News– Retired U.S. Navy Admiral James Stavridis says that the Iranian warships on the way to Venezuela pose a new threat to the United States.  Meanwhile, the FBI says it was able to track the hackers of the Colonial Pipeline to wherever their hole was and to get the ransom back from the scum.
  82. 2021 Friday U: Popular Culture News– Senator James Lankford, R-OK, says he’s glad that his state booted the Marxist cancer of Critical Race Theory.  Speaking of CRT, banning this flawed propaganda from K-12 schools is NOT cancel culture; no, it’s the ONLY thing.
  83. 2021 Friday V: Moron News–  The esteemed FBI Director Chris Wray- a man who had NO CLUE the Defense Intelligence Agency had a top-level Chi-Com defector in its grip- says that ‘yes, indeed, Mexican cartel criminal activity is indeed spilling over into the U.S.’  Then do something about it moron (we should have put this one into MORON NEWS- oh, look, we did).  Next- and the hits just keep on coming- a New Jersey school district (we won’t even name them) has excised ALL holiday names off the school calendar for the upcoming term.  Losers.  In other MORON NEWS, Black Lives Matter promises much more transparency after one of their cofounders raped the Marxist organization, purchased expensive real estate in several states, then told them to go “F**k themselves” as she retired.  Why not sue Patrice Cullors and get your George Soros money back?  Finally, one moron calls another moron a ‘moron’- Meghan McCain, the overweight, bonbon-gobbling ‘conservative’ cow from the View says ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris is a ‘moron’ over her dimwitted answers regarding the southern border crisis.  Amen.
  84. 2021 Friday W: Energy News– Pacific Gas & Electric warns Californians that MORE blackouts are on the way.  (Note- and Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom wonders WHY the citizens of the once-Golden State are going to spend $215 million recalling his worthless butt?)
  85. 2021 Friday X: U.S. Senate News– A bipartisan group of senators has arrived at a $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill.  The Biden regime sought $1.9 trillion; the lawmakers lowered his demand by just a tad.  Still, the money will have to come from foreigners like the Chi-Coms.  What a victory for the American people.  Next, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, is seeking student loan debt deferment for survivors of terrorism.
  86. 2021 Friday Y: Fake News– Pulitzers honor Chi-Vi pandemic coverage as well as the Antifa/Black Lives Matter rallies that so destroyed numerous urban centers that remain burnt down and vacant.  You better believe that FAKE NEWS media is excited about receiving honors for supporting, participating in, and reporting on these criminal acts.  Elsewhere, a new report says that President Donald J. Trump’s Department of Justice forced Apple to hand over data on Democrats in government to the administration.  Sounds like a crock of festering crap.  (Note- if he did, it’s NOTHING that Barack Hussein Obama didn’t do.  Everyone knows Obama’s regime spied on- and sometimes- imprisoned- reporters).
  87. 2021 Friday Z: President Donald J. Trump News– President Trump is welcoming a large group of GOP lawmakers to his home to discuss tactics and strategy for the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump says he has turned down TWO book deals- even though he has been busy writing vast amounts of pages- because he is hard at work doing something of way more importance.
  88. 2021 Friday AA: Arizona State News– Attorney General Mark Brnovich has thrown his hat into the ring to challenge Senator Mark Kelly, D-AZ, in 2022.
  89. 2021 Friday BB: California State News– Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom is among top lawmakers in the Golden State to receive a 4.2-percent pay bump.  Wow.  It never stops.  Speaking of ‘the Nazi,’ he signed a bill to begin rolling back the lockdowns and restrictions he so needlessly imposed upon the citizens of his state.  In November, YOU’RE GONE, POS.  Next, the state of California is appealing a recent overturn of the more-than-three-decades-old assault weapons ban by a federal judge.  Screw them.
  90. 2021 Friday CC: Nevada State News– Governor Steve Sisolak, D-NV, signed a law giving the Silver State the first-in-the-nation presidential primary.
  91. 2021 Friday DD: Idaho News– Governor Brad Little, R-ID, says he is ‘not Ron DeSantis-enough for Idaho conservatives.’  His lieutenant governor, Janice McGeachin, is primarying him in 2022.
  92. 2021 Friday EE: Texas State News– Governor Greg Abbott says that the Lone Star State is going to finish what the Trump administration began and the Biden regime won’t: build the wall and deport them all.  (Note- we think Gov. Abbott should bring former Sheriff Joe Arpaio to Texas and have him construct the tent jail facilities that were so famous in the Copper State.  Build those tent prisons, force the illegal aliens to wear pink underwear, and feed them peanut butter sandwiches all three meals of the day.
  93. 2021 Friday FF: Economic News– New reports say that Americans fleeing totalitarian BLUE STATES for RED ones are taking $26.8 billion in tax revenue with them and redistributing it to their new homes.  Wow.
  94. 2021 Friday GG: Sports News– Now that the word’s out, the NFL is going to discontinue the decades-long ‘race-norming policies’ with which it provided health and medical benefits to WHITE players while denying them to BLACK players.  ‘Race-norming’ means that the NFL viewed blacks as being less-intelligent thus they should receive lesser or no benefits for concussion-related diseases while making sure the white players- being more intelligent and all (Note- this is NOT US saying this; no, this is what the news has been reporting)- receive additional or higher benefits for the same post-career brain injuries.  The NFL also ‘race-normed’ player positions such as wide receiver and other positions that mostly black players fill the ranks.  Wow.  Where is communist Colin Kaepernick on this outrage?
  95. 2022 Saturday:  Amazing how last year’s Chi-Vi stats pale in comparison to what we’ve seen a year later…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Dennis Wilson released his ONLY solo album- in his LIFETIME- “Pacific Ocean Blue”- on August 22, 1977.  Somewhat a shock to fans of the Beach Boys back in the day as it was NOT a Beach Boys-style album to be sure- some proclaim it to be the ‘bomb’ while others gave it a listen or two and then stuck it on the record shelf.  The drummer who once could sing, “Do You Wanna Dance” with the beautiful voice now had one cracked from alcoholism, tobacco, and God knows what else.  Only Bruce Johnston joined him from his time in the BBs but he had members of the touring band as well as legendary session men and women adding to the overall sound.  As an ‘oddity,’ it is worth checking out but if you expect to hear Beach Boys, do yourself a favor and seek it out at your local library where you can check it out for free.  Sad but true- we call ‘em the way we frigging see ‘em.

161. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, JUNE 10, 202

2020 Wednesday: The left continues running amok across the United States thanks to the collusion between the Democratic Party and their communist masters in Beijing. Statues are being torn down, Antifa is taking over six-block swaths of Seattle and declaring their own independent totalitarian fiefdom. It will soon be time for the military to take to the streets and to begin cleaning up this low-life, socialist pond scum. Light ‘em up, President Trump, light ‘em up!

  73. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– The president of Guatemala- Alejandro Giammattei – blames the Biden regime for the crisis at the southern border and not his country or its people.   Next, Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, is hosting a border crisis summit today in the Lone Star State.  Speaking of the disaster, Newsmax reports that millions of illegal aliens could pour across the southern border, a statement confirmed by former Acting Customs and Border Patrol Commissioner Mark Morgan.  Rep.  Darrell Issa, R-CA 50th congressional district, has offered a formal invitation to “Kooky Kamala” Harris to visit the California-Mexico border as his guest.
  74. 2021 Thursday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– Iran is growing bolder in its demands to rejoin the failed nuclear deal, the JCPOA.  Elsewhere, the French man who slapped President Emanuel Macron gets a four-month stretch in the hoosegow.  (Note- in the U.S., he might have languished in the jail for 6-7 years before his trial would finally occur in the courts.  Then, he might wait anywhere from 6-24 months before receiving sentence.  Maybe we should speed up our courts like the French model?)   Meanwhile, if Benjamin Netanyahu is ousted from Israeli politics, it could end up hurting relations between American evangelicals and the Jewish state.   Next, the Chi-Coms liken the hysteria over the origins of the Chi-Vi to the one swirling around ‘weapons of mass destruction and Iraq.’  Elsewhere, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says that ‘Venezuela must turn back’ the two Iranian vessels on the way to dock in that criminal regime.
  75. 2021 Thursday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information– Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, is raising new questions about Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci’s ‘advice’ to ‘follow the science.’  It is clear that the “Mighty Mite” is no longer a practitioner of science so much as he is a political hack working on behalf of the left.  Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, says that the probe into the Chi-Com Bat Virus’ origins is much like the Trump-Russian Collusion probe meaning to us, it’s a political show with no real outcome expected.  Next, Moderna files for emergency use of its Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine for use in minors, ages 12-17.  However, stunning information continues to bubble up regarding the use of the Chi-Vi vaccines in young people and the accompanying rates of serious symptoms including those of myocarditis or inflammation of the heart muscle.  Yet, the Biden regime continues pushing these vaccines onto every American like the Reverend Jim Jones pushed cups of Kool-Aid onto his followers down in Jonestown, Guyana.  Friends, may we be so bold as to say what most of us think?  We believe this is social engineering at its worst.  We believe the more people that die around the globe, say, maybe 1-2 billion, that will do the global warming lovers good in cutting down the human population on the planet, something they have been hard at work accomplishing via abortion, rising crime rates, a polluted environment, increased fear, and now ‘vaccines for a lab-engineered virus in…frigging communist China?’  F*** this, NONE of us are going to take this vaccination.  (Note- now that we know hydroxychloroquine increases one’s chances of surviving this crap by 200-percent and it’s cheap, then WTF?)
  76. 2021 Thursday I: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– The Arizona state senate is prepared for whatever the results from the 2020 Election are.  From press conferences, we already know there are loads of problems.  Likewise, election officials in Fulton County, Georgia, are preparing to depose some of the corrupt election officials that scanned, re-scanned, and re-re-scanned stacks of ballots after sending everyone else home for the night.  We suspect once the scumbags begin facing prison time, they will begin flipping on one another.  What will the FAKE NEWS MEDIA say then?
  77. 2021 Thursday J: Joe Biden News– Questions continue to arise as to WHY Faux First Lady Dr. Jill Biden spent nearly 20-25 minutes ‘introducing hubby ‘Cho-Mo Joe’ to U.S. military in Great Britain yesterday.  We brought that up yesterday- is she akin to Edith Bolling Galt, President Woodrow Wilson’s wife, who ran the show while her husband was incapacitated by a debilitating stroke?  Everyone knows the drooler-in-chief is not all there.
  78. 2021 Thursday K: Political News I– Fox News heir James Murdoch spent $20 million opposing President Donald J. Trump by donating to Joe Biden and other progressive candidates.  Elsewhere, George P. Bush- in yet another incredible show of brown-nosing on his behalf- says that President Donald J. Trump remains the center of the GOP universe.  Daddy Jeb Bush must be upset.
  79. 2021 Thursday L: Business News– Rising inflation is driving up the costs of everything.  Millennials have no clue as to what inflation is or worse, stagflation, should that economic malady fall atop the country.

  81. 2021 Thursday N: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Amazon.com defends its decision to sell the now-infamous “Blue Lives Murder” merchandise at its site.  Shame on them.  Meanwhile, Newsmax reports on a psychoanalyst by the name of Donald Moss who says that ‘whiteness is parasitic’ and the POS is WHITE.  Ah, all the LOSERS are jumping aboard the anti-white train.  Like the Nazis had the Jews, so, too, do the Democrats have WHITE people.  The time is NOW to stomp out this insanity.  NOW.  Vote out every Democrat and send them to reeducation camps.
  82. 2021 Thursday O: Social Media News and Big Tech News– Instagram fact checks satirical posts about Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci.  It would appear that they are forcing users to either edit or to delete posts critical of the “Mighty Mite.”   Meanwhile, some sort of ad campaign is targeting workers at Facebook with the intention of preventing President Donald J. Trump from EVER being on the platform again.  In other social media news, the U.S. State Department is attacking Nigeria’s ban on Twitter following Twitter shutting down the account of President Muhammadu Buhari.  Once again, the Biden regime is on the wrong side of the argument.
  83. 2021 Thursday P: Health And Medical Alerts– Patients are hopeful to receive Biogen’s new Alzheimer’s drug, even though it costs $56,000 per year and very few insurances will cover the costs.  Add to that the fact that we know little to nothing about its side effects and it would appear we have a crapshoot on our hands.  Still, if it can help people like the ‘drooler-in-chief Joe Biden, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, and the fossilized Senator Dianne Feinstein, then we can watch what happens to them.   Meanwhile, news reports say Medicare Copays for the new Alzheimer’s disease drug could reach $11,500 per year.  Remember: the new drug is projected to cost $56,000 per year.
  84. 2021 Thursday Q: War on Terror News / Terrorism News / Jihad News– The U.S. is considering launching airstrikes in support of its Afghan allies even as the United States continues its withdrawal from that war-torn country.  Meanwhile, Rep.  Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, CPUSA-MN 5th congressional district, finds herself in hot water once again over her anti-Israel and pro-Hamas babblings.  (Note- the question is, is Omar as stupid as Sandy “The Fly” Cortez is or is she even lower IQ than the extremely low IQ leader of the (Suicide) Squad?  This bitch must be removed from Congress ASAP).
  85. 2021 Thursday R: U.S. House of Representatives News– House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden cares more about Russian jobs than he does American ones.’  And they said that President Donald J. Trump was a Russian stooge!  Meanwhile, Rep.  Blaine Luetkemeyer, R-MO 3rd congressional district, says the Biden regime must incentivize workers to return to their jobs rather than disincentivize them by giving them more money to stay home rather than to do the right thing.  Elsewhere, House Republicans have sent letters to Mark Zuckerberg and to Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci questioning their interactions over sanitizing the news on the China Virus. 
  86. 2021 Thursday S: U.S. Senate News– Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says it’s amazing to see the large number of foreign policy blunders committed by the Biden regime in its first five months.  Next,  Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci chose the Chi-Coms and Big Tech over the American people.  Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says he will look at the bipartisan infrastructure bill.  Conversely, Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell says little Sandy “The Fly” Cortez can’t even sell her moronic policies to her own party.
  87. 2021 Thursday T: Fake News– “Wank-spanking” Jeffrey Toobin- the luminary of CNN- is returning to that network after getting his head straight.  Everyone should remember that Mr. Toobin ‘pulled a Toobin” by masturbating during a Zoom call with his fellow employees several months back.  Will the cameras ever dare to film him below his chest henceforth?
  88. 2021 Thursday U: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump says that ‘I was exonerated’ by the Layfette Park investigation as well as the recent testimony by former White House counsel Don McGahn.   The 45th president also said of Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci that the man is ‘science fiction.’  Next, he derided Joe Biden on his climate change zaniness.
  89. 2021 Thursday V: California State News– Caitlyn Jenner compares herself to President Donald J. Trump as a ‘disrupter.’  Meanwhile, the Golden State’s Democrats are whining and sniveling that the recall of Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom ‘could cost the state $215 million.’  So flipping what?  It’s not like the Democrats care for the homeless, the substance abusers, and anyone else in the state.  They spend BILLIONS of dollars on crap such as the California High Speed Rail boondoggle as well as the loading of salmon spawn onto tanker trucks and carrying them to the Pacific Ocean but they can’t find money for the godforsaken?  WTF!
  90. 2021 Thursday W: Florida State News– “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis says he’ll sign a bill prohibiting transgender surgeries for those under the age of 18.  Good.  He should, they are criminal acts committed by ‘WOKE’ parents.  You want to transition, do it when you hit the age of 18.  Florida has also banned Critical Race Theory from all classrooms.
  91. 2021 Thursday X: Texas State News– The Texas Bar Association is ‘investigating’ Attorney General Ken Paxton, R-TX, for ‘official misconduct’ when he called the 2020 Presidential Election in dispute over the claims of rampant fraud and other crimes.  A Michigan judge ruled that AG Paxton was correct when he called out the fraud in the Michigan and three other states and filed lawsuits in federal courts demanding answers.  The states did not follow their own election laws which is why the 2020 Presidential Election was stolen from President Donald J. Trump.

Prior to joining the Beach Boys, Bruce Johnston had released two surf albums along the lines of the band he would become a part of, then leave, and then return to- the Beach Boys- and Jan and Dean.  Sure, there are other seminal surf bands such as the Turtles but like the Beach Boys, they moved beyond that until their breakup.  Ah, well, “Going Public” came out on May 13, 1977, and featured the accomplished songwriter Johnston who plays most of the instruments but does have guests with him.  We hope you will investigate this one as it still remains available for purchase at Amazon.com as well as other fine sites that vend the best in music.  We do believe you are going to enjoy this one so please, seek it out now, give it a good listen, and then see about making it a part of your daily listening pleasure.

[i] We look forward to promoting the music of the Electric Light Orchestra/the Move, Roy Wood, and Wizzard.

[ii] We promoted the music of It’s a Beautiful Day beginning on Thursday, 25-August-2011 through Monday, 29-August-2011 and a second round on Tuesday, 04-February-2014 through Wednesday, 05-February-2014.  Please seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

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

[iv] See previous.

[v] We shared the music of the Stones beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members’ solo projects.  We sure as heck hope you check out the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Keith Richard, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, and Mick Taylor.  Ronnie Wood you can find during the presentation of the Faces. 

[vi] We promoted the music of Big Brother and the Holding Company, beginning on Monday, 18-July-2011 through Tuesday, 26-July-2011.  At the time, we were not farsighted enough to offer the music of Janis Joplin but hope to do so at some point in the near future when we return to promoting the music of American rock bands.

[vii] President Nixon should never have lifted the trade embargo on communist China.  The only time the embargo should have been lifted is when the people of Taiwan cross the straits and reclaim their country from the communists.

[viii] We look forward to sharing the music of Ray Charles with the readership one day so please remain with us until we do.

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

  64. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe–  We do our best to keep track of this so here is today’s assessment: ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been in charge of the catastrophe, no, the calamity occurring on our southern border and the ‘laughing hyena,’ “Kooky,” has yet to make an appearance there in 76 days.  (Note- we say that were she in the professional foodservice business and didn’t show up on the first day, we would have terminated her worthless ass.  Just saying).  One America News updated their figures on the ongoing border disaster.  Here we go: (1) Cost to U.S. taxpayers on this day: $568,861,120.  Next, (2) Cost of caring for this blitzkrieg of illegals at this point as 2021: $171,527,815,168.  Imagine if this money went into rebuilding our economy, the one the Chi-Coms and the Democrats conspired to TRASH?  Wow.  Next, (3) the numbers of wet***ks who have crossed so far this year: 1,758,022.  Finally, (4) here are the number of illegals in the country as said by One America News: 35,758,024.  (Note- we have said the dwindling number as far back as 2009 was 35 million with a high of 50 million or more; well, we believe the sparse number is now around 50 million with a high of 80-85 million.  These people are sucking away at our resources.  We must deport all of them NOW.  Anyone who disagrees can go f**k themselves. 
  65. 2021 Sunday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– The citizens of Budapest, Hungary, and across that fabled nation are taking to the streets in protest of the Chi-Coms’ planned building of a Chi-Com university with which they can continue spreading their cancerous ideology.  We stand with the citizens of Hungary and every other nation that has been subjected to the harsh tyranny of communism in their fight to remain free.  NO CHI-COMS.  Not now.  Not ever.  Boot them and their Belt and Roads crap project out of every nation (and you wonder why our numbers are currently in the crapper once again.  Oh, well…)  In other news, a nebulous tie between Hillary Rodham Clinton and Hunter Biden continues to emerge as we now know that lobbyists in their employ reached out to Ukrainian oligarchs so they could obtain meetings with Mrs. Clinton for a certain price, of course. 
  66. 2021 Sunday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information–  Things continue getting worse for Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci by the day.  We now know that Fauci’s organization- the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, aka NIAID- reportedly gave the Wuhan Institute of Virology $826,000 to study the Horseshoe Bat viruses and to accomplish Gain of Function tasks.  Thus, we have the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.   House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, is calling on the compromised Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci to resign.  NOW.  In other interesting news, Judge Jeanine Pirro on her Fox News Channel program yesterday shared a video in which, Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci back in early 2017 PREDICTED that the (Trump) administration was going to find itself confronted with a medical challenge the likes of which we hadn’t seen.  Amazing how the minute doctor was able to prophesize the coming of the global pandemic, almost as though he had advance notice.  Wow.  The deeper we dig the worse filth turns up.   Fauci was in the ‘anti-Trump camp’ from the start.  This story will one day shock the entire world.
  67. 2021 Sunday I: Political News I– Yesterday, during the GOP convention in the Peach State, the GOP censured Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, RINO, while the convention was ongoing.  Wow.  (Note- former Rep. Doug Collins, R-GA 9th congressional district, should seek this job in 2022).   Next, crumbling Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom, DS-C, says that he is ‘not going to relinquish his pandemic emergency powers.’  This guy most likely will be gone come November; he still wants to stick it to the citizens of his state including fellow Democrats.  Speaking of asinine state chief executives, Governor “Gravel Gertie” Gretchen Whitmer, DS-MI, pitches a new plan with which to provide unemployment benefits to part-time workers without jobs.  Wow. Love throwing around taxpayer money even though you won’t reopen your state.  What is wrong with this picture?   Finally, the U.S. Senate Sergeant-at-Arms Karen Gibson says she is more ‘fearful of cyberattack than she is of another January 06, 2021.’  Amen.
  68. 2021 Sunday J: New Category!  Moron News– New York’s shame, Rep. Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, DS-NY 14th congressional district (Joe Crowley, when are you going to take back your old seat?) said something truly stupid, truly, truly stupid- ‘In order to stop violent crime, the answer is to build fewer prisons and jails.’ Folks, this dimwitted horse’s ass never fails to disappoint, she will show her stupidity day after day after day and without being prodded to do so.  In reward, we will no longer call her by her professional name of ‘Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ but will go with her birth name of ‘Sandy “The Fly” Cortez.’
  69. 2022 Monday: How many cases of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu will see one year from last year?  The numbers last year were less than this year’s tally so far.  However, it’s an election year so this year, the numbers are going to be far higher…it’s the only way the Dems can win…

  53. 2020 Friday B: Here are today’s stats for the United States: 1,935,432 confirmed cases, 110,655 confirmed deaths, and 453,053 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here is California’s numbers: 122,901 confirmed cases, 4,485 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, in Hawaii, here are the numbers: 655 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 611 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in far-left Washington, here are the numbers for today: 22,974 confirmed cases, 1,149 confirmed deaths, but like other socialist s-holes, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.
  54. 2021 Saturday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 173,704,678 confirmed cases, +392,196, 3,735,760  confirmed deaths, +8,984 and 156,812,386 confirmed recoveries, +532,556.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 34,203,708 confirmed cases, UP 10,937 from yesterday’s reporting, 612,583 confirmed deaths, UP 381,[v] and 28,100,548 confirmed recoveries, UP 47,450.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[vi]  
  55. 2021 Saturday A: Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 294,677 Chi-Vi deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 164,972 deaths

  57. 2021 Saturday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,569 confirmed cases, 6,418 confirmed deaths, and 832,932 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one other country-  Maldives, 104th country on the list: 67,538 cases of the virus, 182 confirmed deaths and 47,333 confirmed recoveries.[viii]     
  58. 2021 Saturday D: Friday’s Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,756.39, UP 179.35 points (+0.52%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,814.59, UP 199.98 points (+1.47%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,229.89, UP 37.04 points (+0.88%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $68.37 per barrel, -0.25 (-0.36%).  The price of GOLD is $1,894.10 per troy oz., +2.10 (+0.11%) while the price of SILVER is $27.92 per troy ounce, +0.02 (+0.09%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,168.30 per troy oz, +3.60 (+0.31%) while the price of COPPER is $4.52 per pound, -0.01 (-0.28%).[ix]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,841.08 per troy oz, +2.10 (+0.07%).[x] The price of RHODIUM is $23,300.00 per troy oz., -1,000.00 (-4.12%).

  59. 2021 Saturday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.215 per gallon, $2.855 in Florida, $3.954 in Hawaii, and $3.597 in Washington state.[xiii]    Let’s look at one other location- Iowa: $2.881.  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- Panama: $3.374 per U.S. Gallon.[xiv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,369,641,789,513 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good.  NOTE- communist China owns approximately $1.1 trillion.  However, they are not the largest holder of U.S. debt.  The top holder is Japan who owns $1.266 trillion of American debt.  The Chi-Coms are number two on the list.  The third nation owning much of our debt is Brazil- they own $300 billion.[xvi]
  60. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– By our count, today is Day #75 for the gibbering hyena- the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and boy, what a ‘czar’ she’s been- not shown up once to see just how insane things have become there, not to give us her customary high-pitched cackle to show she’s on the job.  WTF!  Meanwhile, One American News shared the latest border stats with its viewers today.  Are we ready?  Here we go: (1) Cost this Day Alone for caring for all these illegal aliens: $584,766,784, all of which is taxpayer money.  Next- (2) Total Cost this Year of caring for all these illegal aliens- $170,447,814,656, all of which again belongs to the taxpayers.  Imagine if they gave the descendants of slaves in this country the money as reparations instead of squandering it upon ILLEGAL ALIENS?  This is insane.  Next, (3) Number of Illegals who have crossed the border in 2021: 1,746,953.  Round them up and deport them as fast as they flow in.  Finally, (4) Total Number of Illegals ESTIMATED to be in the U.S.: 35,746,953.  Since 2009, we have estimated the number at 35-50 million whereas now, we believe it is closer to 60-75 million.   These illegals suck away at the life’s blood of the American taxpayers, suck up our benefits, lower wages, drive up the costs of rents, overrun our hospitals, f**k up our schools, and commit millions of crimes.  Time to scoop them up and deport ALL of them NOW.
  61. 2021 Saturday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– NBC News is beginning to see the light (it must be killing them) and is refuting the notion that the southern border is closed, the story the Biden regime continues to pedal.  Speaking of the Biden regime, the Bidenistas in the White House and at the Department of Homeland Security have a new APP with which to enable the legions of illegal aliens to swamp across our southern frontier.  And you ask are the Bidenistas working on behalf of the Chi-Coms, or aren’t they?  The answer seems to speak for itself. 
  62. 2021 Saturday H: Foreign News / Overseas News– The Chi-Coms released Chow Hang Tung from the hoosegow.  She is one of the organizers of the commemoration of Tiananmen Square 1989 event.  Like the Turks hate talking about the Armenian Genocide, so, too, do the Chi-Coms hate talking about the massacre of more than 10,000-11,000 pro-democracy protesters (much less the extermination of the Uighurs, the Tibetans, and non-Han minorities).  Meanwhile, U.S. vaccine supplies arrive in South Korea.  Good.  Send them more and send some to the NORCs, too.  We don’t want them, especially not that Johnson & Johnson crap.  (Note to date, more than 4,200 people have died because of vaccine complications.  Any other drug on the market would already be pulled.  We favor Hydroxychloroquine as a preventative- f**k Neil Cavuto).  Elsewhere, after Twitter shut down the president of Nigeria- Muhammadu Buhari- for one of his tweets, Nigeria shut down Twitter.  That is all that needs to be done.  SHUT THEM DOWN.
  63. 2021 Saturday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information– Speaking of the Chi-Vi, things continue getting worse for Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci.  Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says, “Joe Biden should follow the science and fire Dr. Fauci.”  Amen.  Next, Rep. Burgess Owens, R-UT 4th congressional district, says that ‘Tony Fauci must testify before Congress now that his emails have exposed him.’  Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, is demanding that “Phony Tony” resign NOW.  Meanwhile, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, now that he has called out Dr. ‘Phony Tony’ Fauci is once again receiving death threats from his unenlightened, ignorant enemies.  
  64. 2021 Saturday J: Joe Biden Regime News I– A bipartisan group of lawmakers are urging Joe Biden to begin pulling out our Afghan allies as the handover to the Afghan government continues.  We know what is going to happen there; only it will be worse than what befell the South Vietnamese.  Next, a group of Bidenistas met with their Israeli Defense Forces and guaranteed they would help defend the Jewish state.  We hope so.  In other anti-Joe Biden news, the state of Arizona is growing increasingly resistant to any talk of the Biden regime raising federal income taxes.  Good.  We must fight them on land, sea, in the air, and underground.   Speaking of Biden’s policies, RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel says that ‘Joe’s policies are killing the United States.’
  65. 2021 Saturday K: Political News I– Governor Steve Sisolak, D-NV, signed a bill into law today making MAIL-IN voting the law of the state.  (Note- we must play by their own game if we are to crush these scumbags).  Next, that ignorant, self-important a-hole- CNN’s Jake Tapper- swears that he will blacklist ANY REPUBLICAN from appearing on his show who refuses to admit that Joe Biden won the 2020 Presidential Election.  (Note- we guess he’s going to have Liz Cheney and the other losers who voted to impeach President Donald J. Trump on his show around the clock).   
  66. 2021 Saturday L: Political News II– The U.S. Department of Justice claims that it will NO longer seize the phone records of journalists.  (Note- this was frequent practice under the Obama-Biden regime for eight years- why would it change now?  Of course, they are going to continue seizing records).  In other crazy news, U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Janet Yellen told leaders of the G7 to continue spending and spending, she says inflation will pass.  How the hell did this loser ever run the Fed?  This is insane.   Speaking of the G7, if the Biden regime can convince them to give him his GLOBAL CORPORATE TAX, he will get a ‘win.’  That is flipping crazy.   (Note- do not count President Donald J. Trump out.  Ever).  
  67. 2021 Saturday M: Political News III– President Donald J. Trump addressed more than one-thousand attendees at the North Carolina GOP Convention this evening and what a speech.  The Dems are going to wish they had not stolen the election because terrible things are coming their way.  We also learned that Lara Trump won’t be seeking the U.S. Senate seat of outgoing RINO Richard Burr.  She has two young kids- 1- and- 3-years-old who need their mother more than she needs politics.  President Trump endorsed Rep. Ted Budd, R-NC 13th congressional district, to succeed Senator Burr.  Elsewhere, a federal judge in California has tossed the three decades-plus ban on so-called ‘assault weapons,’ causing Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom to go ballistic.  Perhaps it was the tossing of his beloved ban that led him to say ‘the state is NOT reopening on June 15 as the little closet cross-dresser promised.  Wow.
  68. 2021 Saturday N: Whacked-Out News Of The Day– Within 24 hours, conservatives raised $100,000 for Rep. Alexandria “The Fly” Ocasio-Cortez’s pobrecita abuela in Puerto Rico.  As you know, “The Fly” was crying yesterday about the condition of her poor little abuela’s house in Puerto Rico, doing what good communists do and that is to blame everyone else for their own problems.  Well, AOC must be embarrassed, thus she told her abuela ‘you cannot take this money, it will humiliate me.’  Poor abuela said today she ‘refuses to accept the money because it comes with onerous strings.’  What a flipping loser but her granddaughter, the Fly, is the real embarrassment, a national embarrassment.  Vote her out in 2022 along with the rest of the Squad.
  69. 2021 Saturday O: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3566 with a $52 million pot on the line: 04, 07, 08, 32, 45, and Mega 14.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #852 with a $286 million pot on the line. 44, 52, 54, 64, 69, and Powerball 26.  The California Lottery site is having technical issues tonight… first, here are the Super Lotto winners- out of 131,098 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but no Mega for a prize of $23,629 apiece.  One ticket was sold at (1) Rimpau Smoke Shop in Corona, CA 92881 and the second at (2) Super 1 Cigarette in Visalia, CA 93277.   Next, here are the results for the Powerball: out of 97,904 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $13,921 apiece.
  70. 2021 Saturday P: Ah, it’s the weekend, let’s hope it’s a slow news day…oh, wait!  President Donald J. Trump is speaking at the North Carolina GOP Convention in Greenville this evening.  That is going to send a shiver of cold fear down the backs of the Bidenistas and the Chi-Coms…
  71. 2022 Sunday: Stick around…

A year later, the Beach Boys’ record label did it again: compiled another two LP fantastic collection of the band’s crème de la crème from the same time period as the preceding album we promoted, “Endless Summer.”  “Spirit of America” hit record store shelves on April 14, 1975, and had additional tunes culled from the archives including some B-sides such as the much-beloved “Breakaway.”  Friends, if you are new to the Beach Boys and have not gotten your fill yet or if you are a new fan in a new age, we hope you will seek this one out and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure.  Everyone will celebrate listening to these timeless songs of summer fun, dozing in the sand, hanging with the chicks (sexist, we know, but we don’t give a flying f**k), riding hot rods, motorcycles, and everything else patriotic American young people loved doing.  Seek this album out and make it a part of your daily playlist- you will be so glad you did.

  54. 2019 Tuesday: In Hong Kong and around the world, more than 100,000 people take to the streets to remember the 30th anniversary of the communist Chinese massacre of students in Tiananmen Square.  In 1989, communist tanks drove over protesting students, people seeking democratic reforms.
  55. 2020 Thursday: COVID-19, aka the Wuhan Virus Crisis, aka the Wuhan Bat Flu, aka the communist Chinese-engineered pandemic continues causing problems but so far has been unable to dislodge President Donald J. Trump or bring down the Western World.  Beijing, we are not going to settle for Xi-ism, no flipping way.  Here are the stats for the day around the world: 6,591,391 confirmed cases, 388,710 confirmed deaths, but 2,851,157 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, here are the numbers: 1,910,843 confirmed cases, 109,639 confirmed deaths, but 437,251 confirmed recoveries, the last number of which would be much higher if Blue State governors were not playing politics.
  56. 2020 Thursday A: In the three states in which, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 119,807 confirmed cases, 4,422 confirmed deaths, but Governor ‘Little Gavin’ Newsom will not share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on him.  In the Aloha State, here are the stats: 653 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, but 609 confirmed recoveries which is incredibly good.  Thank you, Governor David Ige, perhaps you can urge Gavin Newsom and Jay Inslee to do the same?  Finally, in the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 22,729 confirmed cases, 1,138 confirmed deaths, but much like California, NO mention of confirmed recoveries which says it’s all about politics.
  57. 2020 Thursday B: U.S. Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr announces that Justice is looking into Antifa and other ‘foreign actors’ involved in the riots crippling the United States at the moment.  About time because the criminal scum must be found hiding under whatever rocks they do, rounded up, and sent to prison for life.  Harmeet Dhillon launches a lawsuit on behalf of beaten journalist Andy Ngo in Portland, Oregon, last year.   Get them, Harmeet!   Again, we must say that the majority of us writing for the AICPENDBLOG.COM now believe that communist China is colluding with the Democratic Party who channels Beijing’s dark money to its various action groups such as Black Lives Matter and Antifa.  Time to bring ALL of them down.
  58. 2021 Friday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 173,301,283 confirmed cases, +406,451, 3,726,693  confirmed deaths, +9,784 and 156,279,830 confirmed recoveries, +46,930.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 34,191,460 confirmed cases, UP 16,542 from yesterday’s reporting, 612,202 confirmed deaths, UP 630,[viii] and 28,053,098 confirmed recoveries, UP 29,228.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ix]  
  59. 2021 Friday A: Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 294,296 Chi-Vi deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 165,353 deaths  
  60. 2021 Friday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,794,217 confirmed cases, 63,393 confirmed deaths, and 2,059,372 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,329,867 confirmed cases, 36,973 confirmed deaths, and 1,970,341 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 36,471 confirmed cases, 501 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 441,674 confirmed cases, 5,889 confirmed deaths, and 215,260 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Missouri, home of newest Squad member: Rep. Cori “The Bit*h” Bush: they have 601,503 confirmed cases, 9,846 confirmed deaths, and 545,505 confirmed recoveries.[x]   
  61. 2021 Friday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,539 confirmed cases, 6,417 confirmed deaths, and 832,923 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one other country- Luxembourg, 104th country on the list, a proud country with a centuries’ old history, a: 70,182 cases of the virus, 818 confirmed deaths and 68,556 confirmed recoveries.[xi]     
  62. 2021 Friday D: Friday’s Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,756.39, UP 179.35 points (+0.52%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,814.59, UP 199.98 points (+1.47%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,229.89, UP 37.04 points (+0.88%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $68.37 per barrel, -0.25 (-0.36%).  The price of GOLD is $1,894.10 per troy oz., +2.10 (+0.11%) while the price of SILVER is $27.92 per troy ounce, +0.02 (+0.09%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,168.30 per troy oz, +3.60 (+0.31%) while the price of COPPER is $4.52 per pound, -0.01 (-0.28%).[xii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,841.08 per troy oz, +2.10 (+0.07%).[xiii] The price of RHODIUM is $23,300.00 per troy oz., -1,000.00 (-4.12%). The price of NEODYMIUM is $602,500.00 per troy oz., -2,500.00 (-0.41%). [xiv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000027.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.39 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.96.     In Emirati Dirham, one greenback equals 3.67 and in Estonian Kroon, a buck equals 13.95 and in Ethiopian Birr, one dollar equals 43.19 of theirs.[xv]        
  63. 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 risen to over $4.210 per gallon, $2.857 in Florida, $3.944 in Hawaii, and $3.590 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Georgia: $2.909.  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- Namibia: $3.343 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,367,734,381,099 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.  NOTE- communist China owns approximately $1.1 trillion.  However, they are not the largest holder of U.S. debt.  The top holder is Japan who owns $1.266 trillion of American debt.  The Chi-Coms are number two on the list.[xix]
  64. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– By our count, today is Day #74 for the so-called ‘Border Czar,’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in this extremely important job and as of yet, has not shown up to work…once.  Seems like we need a new border czar and not Willie Brown’s former bed partner.  Just saying… In other border news, reports on Newsmax say that nearly $2 billion earmarked for the border wall along the heaviest traffic sector remains unused.  Joe Biden- use this money to continue wall construction.  Now. Speaking of “Cho-Mo Joe” Biden (that tape with him talking about a 7-year-old girl looking like she’s 19 was extremely creepy and classic, classic “Cho-Mo Joe”), today, he officially ended President Donald J. Trump’s ‘remain in Mexico’ policy.
  65. 2021 Friday G: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information– A Chinese virologist- Dr. Lei-Meng Yan- says ‘Dr. Fauci’s leaked emails prove her claim that the Xi Jinping Bat Flu was indeed leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology as a majority of people around the globe now believe.’  Amen.  Dr. Fauci was sending the lab $600,000 per year to study bat viruses.  Speaking of Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci now demands the Chi-Coms release the data on the bat cave patients who were the original people sickened by the Wuhan Flu.
  66. 2021 Friday H: NASA, Space, and UFO News– Advance portions of the Pentagon study into unidentified aerial (and submersible) phenomena are beginning to come out.  Initial excerpts suggest inconclusive findings stating that they could be ‘Chi-Com or Russian highly advanced craft.’  However, Lue Elizondo, the man who headed up the investigation at the Pentagon says that the report actually says the sightings of these and other unknown craft date back 70 years which confirms there is NO way either the Russians or the Chi-Coms could be responsible.  Sightings occurred for as long as human beings have walked the Earth; however, once the nuclear age commenced in the 1950s, the sightings have gone straight up (like the ‘hockey stick model’ that doofus promoting climate change uses) and only continue increasing.  (Note- the Chi-Coms have been busy stealing our (and everyone else’s) technology for decades which suggests there is no way the Beijing bullies could be responsible for this.  We seem to have a BIG PROBLEM.  Anyhow, former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-NV, says he’s ‘glad he blew the whistle on this problem and got the ball rolling.’  Thank you, senator, thank you.  We didn’t agree with you on much else, but this is a great thing you have done for our country.  
  67. 2021 Friday I: Big Tech News– Little Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook have banned President Donald J. Trump from its social media app (we closed our accounts long, long ago) for the next TWO years, meaning they think they are cutting him off from the rest of the world through the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.  However, President Trump said, ‘next time he’s in the White House, there won’t be any dinners for Zuckerberg and his wife, it will be all business.’  We look forward to that time, folks.  Time to use the Sherman Antitrust Act and bust up not only Facebook but also Twitter, Instagram, and all the rest of the mind-controlling apps spying on us and canceling anyone they choose.  
  68. 2021 Friday J: Political News I– Rep. Nancy Mace, R-SC 1st congressional district, says that the ‘graffiti all over her home is a sign of the times in the United States.’  Next the U.S. Senate GOP rejects the Biden regime’s infrastructure demand which leads to feeble old Joe rejecting their rejection.  Wow.  Moving on, yesterday, we reported that jobs created in May were something like 985,000 which was a false number- the true number was 559,000 new jobs which economists said should have been 650,000; the Republicans are ripping Joe Biden a new one over his ineptitude when it comes to being a ‘successful president.’  This man is a walking, stumbling, bumbling disaster and all we can say is ‘IF the Chi-Coms want to get in their licks, they better do it as quickly as possible because once the 2020 Election audits conclude, Joe will be selling pencils on the street corner.
  69. 2021 Friday K: Political News II– Former White House counsel under the Trump administration Don McGahn testified before Congress today.  Next, Vice President Mike Pence said that “Black lives saved, not endangered, by the police.”  Next, the Pentagon says- for now- U.S. military bases still cannot fly the LGBTQIA+ flag (but how long before they do).   Elsewhere, the National Rifle Association drops claims against New York Attorney General Leticia James so the NRA can pursue other claims in Manhattan.  Meanwhile, former ambassador to the United States from Israel- Michael Oren- says, ‘it’s always premature to eulogize Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.’  Amen.
  70. 2021 Friday L: Business News– Nonfungible Tokens- so-called NFT sales have fallen by 90-percent as the market implodes.  NFTs are cryptographic assets on blockchain that in the era of cryptocurrencies and other things that don’t exist in the REAL world are things hucksters and shysters peddle to unsuspecting morons wanting to be COOL.  (Note- NFTs are a bogus thing such as digital art and other high-tech crap Millennials love.  Screw ‘em).
  71. 2021 Friday M: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for tonight’s Draw #1665 with a $45 million jackpot on the line: 04, 30, 34, 41, 64, and Mega 08.  Stay tuned for further details.  Out of 58,203 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were 36 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $427 apiece.
  72. 2022 Saturday: Let’s see what corruption the Democrats and their bosses in Beijing are up to today…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys would be on tour for the next several years while they were trying to get Brian Wilson out of the doldrums of mental illness and back to being a functioning member of the group.  Thus, the record label began creating some phenomenal repackaging of the group’s earlier hits.  “Endless Summer” came out on June 24, 1974 and featured a rollicking collection of tunes from 1963 to 1965.  Back in the day, this was a double LP and catapulted the band back to popularity and sales as old fans who abandoned them returned and new fans proclaimed a ‘collective wow’ what with all the fun summer songs about surfin,’ girls, and hot rods.  As the Vietnam War sputtered to a close and Watergate was in the history books, everyone wanted to have a fun time once again and with this album, they could and did.  Seek this one out and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

154. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, JUNE 03, 2022

2021 Thursday G: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, And ‘Refugees’ News- News reports today say that ‘illegal aliens released from custody into the interior of the United States are now out there panhandling as they have no resources.’ Wow. Hopefully, as these people weaken from malnutrition and lack of water, they will begin self-deporting. What is clear is that the American people are not going to come to their aid. Vamanos mojados! (Note- a ‘purge’ might be coming soon…)

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

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

  57. 2006 Saturday: A massive earthquake slams Java in Indonesia, killing at least 6,600 people and wounding countless others as well as leaving hundreds of thousands homeless.  Elsewhere, the gay pride folks once again take to the streets of Moscow, trying to get that country to enter into the 21st century but it goes awry as usual.  Mayor Yuri Luzhkov announced that ‘homosexuality is unnatural’ and banned the long-anticipated gay rights parade.  This led to the police taking to the streets, beating, and arresting people- including members of the European Parliament.  Russia does not want this and the more you push it the more violent the outcome is going to be.  Maybe things will be better next year.
  58. 2007 Sunday: Some places you can get away with stuff and in others you cannot: after the Moscow mayor- Yuri Luzhkov- just like last year banned a gay pride event and parade in his city, apparently the participants failed to get the message, Moscow police go out and beat up Russian gay rights activists and foreign dignitaries who came to celebrate a change in Russia (or so they thought).  (Note- there aren’t going to be any changes in Russia anytime soon).
  59. 2008 Tuesday: Problems are going on between the Argentine government and grain farmers.  The problems are over the prices the farmers get when they sell their grain for export and since there is no answer to this problem, the farmers announce all sales will HALT between May 28 and June 2.  Let us hope there is an end to this crisis.
  60. 2009 Wednesday: In Lahore, Pakistan, members of the so-called ‘religion of peace’ carry out another suicide bombing that delivers 35 True Believers up to Allah sooner than any of them had planned and injures at least 250 other poor souls.  WTF!   Meanwhile, in an extremely curious move, Russia agrees to supply U.S. civilian nuclear reactors with $1 billion worth of uranium.
  61. 2010 Thursday: The Israeli government calls the ambassadors of several nations- Sweden, Cyprus, Ireland, Greece, and Turkey- on the carpet for launching a flotilla of ‘aid’ to the Gaza Strip, a territory the Israelis have kept under blockade for the past three years due to their terrorist operations against their country.  These countries compiled a ‘fleet’ of eight ships- four of which were cargo ships carrying ‘supplies’ to the Palestinians as well as a ferry trundling down the coast from Turkey carrying 600 people.  The Israelis don’t deserve this crap.  It is a clash of civilizations- Israel representing civilization and the Palestinians representing barbarism.
  62. 2011 Friday: Prime Minister David Cameron confirms that the United Kingdom is sending Apache attack helicopters to help the Libyan rebels in their attempt to overthrow Dictator Moammar Gaddafi.  Meanwhile- California Burning: a massive wildfire in the surrounding hills above Lake Isabella, Kern County, forces residents to flee via the three available avenues out of the area.  The California drought has depleted the massive reservoir.
  63. 2012 Sunday: Following some controversial remarks, Christine Lagarde, head of the International Monetary Fund, suffers accusations of “insulting the Greek people.”   Elsewhere, Vladimir Putin’s hired thugs disguised as ‘protesters’ take to the streets in Tbilisi, Georgia, demanding the ouster of the duly-elected government of Mikhail Saakashvili.    
  64. 2013 Monday: Scientists in Canada bring 400-year-old bryophyte specimens left behind by retreating glaciers during the Ice Age back to life.  Elsewhere, the European Union decided to lift an arms embargo on the Syrian opposition while maintaining all other sanctions against President Bashar al-Assad’s regime.  Meanwhile, U.S. Senator John McCain, R-Arizona, a proponent of arming Syrian rebels (without knowing who the f**k they are), quietly slipped into Syria for a meeting with anti-government forces.       
  65. 2014 Tuesday: President Barack Obama plans to keep 9,800 U.S. troops in Afghanistan through the end of 2015 and then reduce this number over the following two years to a small force; the troops will train Afghan forces and conduct counterterrorism operations.  However, while giving a press conference at Baghram Air Base in Afghanistan, the White House, i.e., President Obama, ‘accidentally leaks’ the name of the top CIA intelligence officer in that country and even worse, he does it before 6,000 assembled journalists.  WTF, President O?  When ‘Scooter’ Libby ‘accidentally’ spilled the name of Valerie Plame, he went to federal prison.
  66. 2015 Wednesday: According to Brainy History, the federal government approves commercial space company SpaceX as a contractor to the U.S. military for satellite launches; SpaceX will compete for contracts against the Boeing-Lockheed Martin United Launch Alliance, currently the primary military launch provider.  Elsewhere, former Senator Rick Santorum, RINO-PA, announces he will be running for 2016 presidential nomination of the Republican Party.  Uh, okay. 
  67. 2016 Friday: Longtime bassist with the soul-funk-rock band, The Ohio Players[iii]—Marshall “Rock” Jones—died on this date in Houston, Texas; he was 75 years-old.  Elsewhere, Iranian morality police scoop up at least 30 college students who had the chutzpah to attend a co-ed graduation party.  The penalty for their crimes?  Ninety-nine lashes.  Wow.  Can’t have the sexes mingling now, can we?  Barbarism folks, plain, simple barbarism.
  68. 2017 Saturday: Gregg Allman, famed lead singer of the Macon, Ga., rock band, the Allman Brothers[iv], died at his home in Richmond Hill, Georgia, on this date due to the ill effects of liver disease.  Elsewhere, at Taormina, Italy, the 43rd G7 summit sputters to an end as every leader save for President Donald J. Trump votes to uphold the NON-BINDING Paris Climate Accord.  Of course, the BBC and American liberals began wailing about ‘climate change denial’ when in truth, there is NO evidence that it exists or does not exist.  The planet is in a constant state of flux and anyone who says otherwise simply does not accept the PROVEN science.  Climate change for former committed communists is the easiest way to force totalitarianism upon an unsuspecting population.
  69. 2018 Sunday: Problems continue erupting across Brazil as workers at the state-owned petroleum company- Petrobras- join the ongoing teamsters strike.  Elsewhere, the Israelis announce they will be building a ‘unique deterrent’ to Palestinians boarding ships and sneaking into Israel by sailing around land barriers and landing on their beaches.  The new obstacles will be three stories high and will be constructed of stone and defensive fencing which will prevent jihadists crossing from Gaza getting into Israel and causing problems.  Destroy the vermin.   (Note- the U.S. requires something like this on the Mexican border by San Diego, California).
  70. 2019 Monday: A new global study that investigated 711 rivers around the world finds that many of them are polluted with antibiotics and other medicines either flushed down the toilet or tossed into them for disposal.  Elsewhere, Reuters reports a horrifying story that in the Brazilian state of Amazonas, prison officials in several different jails discovered the corpses of at least 42 inmates strangled to death.  This followed on the heels of yesterday’s deaths of 15 gangbanging thugs in the state capital’s prison.  The violence appears to be spreading like a cancer.
  71. 2020 Wednesday: Sadly, America’s first attempt in nine years at putting astronauts back into space is scrubbed due to electrical storms raging in parts of Florida.  Saturday is the next date.  Astronauts Bob Bacon and Doug Hurley were aboard the Falcon 9 rocket provided by Space X.  Waiting aboard the Dragon Crew Capsule for their 19-hour trip to the International Space Station for over an hour, the duo learned the flight was postponed due to safety reasons.  We will be there Saturday.
  72. 2020 Wednesday A: The Chinese-created COVID-19 Wuhan Bat Virus continues causing problems and some scientists now say the virus is engineered ‘perfectly’ in that it can morph into variations that a normal virus could not.  Thank you, communist China, but the AICPENDBLOG.COM believed from the beginning that the Wuhan Flu’s appearance was too ‘coincidental’ to show up shortly after the communist Chinese lower-level signatories to the U.S.-China Trade Deal.  That is not right.  Here are the statistics for today for the world: 5,651,806 confirmed cases, 353,246 confirmed deaths, and 2,325,989 confirmed recoveries. 
  73. 2020 Wednesday B: In the United States, we have 1,730,136 confirmed cases, 101,356 confirmed deaths, and 369,460 confirmed recoveries.  It is important to note that recoveries would be much higher if Blue State governors were not playing politics with the disease.  To us, this demonstrates evidence of the COLLUSION between communist China and the Democratic Party, something that must be investigated if the American people are ever to learn the truth.  In the three states where the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the statistics, California first: 98,980 confirmed cases, 3,884 confirmed deaths, BUT ZERO MENTION of confirmed recoveries which confirms for us that Governor Gavin Newsom is doing nothing but playing politics.  In Hawaii, here are the numbers: 643 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 592 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the socialist non-paradise of Washington state, here are the stats: 20,181 confirmed cases, 1,078 confirmed deaths, but like California, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  (It is interesting to note that Chef Vladimir says that prior to mail-in ballots in the state became the norm, the state was a reliable RED in every election as it will be again when people return to voting in the normal way).
  74. 2021 Thursday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 169,616,816 confirmed cases, +537,668, 3,524,509 confirmed deaths, +11,643 and 151,459,161 confirmed recoveries, +65,910.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,999,680 confirmed cases, UP 24,393 from yesterday’s reporting, 607,726 confirmed deaths, UP 630,[v] and 27,701,879 confirmed recoveries, UP 42,832.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[vi]  
  75. 2021 Thursday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 289,779 CHI-VI deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 169,830 deaths  
  76. 2021 Thursday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,786,604 confirmed cases, 63,161 confirmed deaths, and 2,024,029 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,318,480 confirmed cases, 36,733 confirmed deaths, and 1,939,437 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 36,032 confirmed cases, 498 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 436,124 confirmed cases, 5,814 confirmed deaths, and 212,224 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Michigan: they have 990,638 confirmed cases, 20,301 confirmed deaths, and 791,206 confirmed recoveries.[vii]   
  77. 2021 Thursday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,420 confirmed cases, 6,406 confirmed deaths, and 832,599 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Finland, a former ally of Nazi Germany during World War II: 92,062 cases of the virus, 946 confirmed deaths and 46,000 confirmed recoveries.[viii]     
  78. 2021 Thursday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,464.64, UP 141.59 points (+0.41%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,736.28, DOWN 1.72 points (-0.013%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,200.88, UP 4.89 points (+0.12%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $67.13 per barrel, +0.26 (+0.39%).  The price of GOLD is $1,894.30 per troy oz., -1.40 (-0.07%) while the price of SILVER is $27.86 per troy ounce, -0.08 (-0.29%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,180.60 per troy oz, +1.50 (+0.14%) while the price of COPPER is $4.66 per pound, 0.00 (-0.05%).[ix]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,808.10 per troy oz, +2.96 (+0.11%).[x] The price of RHODIUM is $22,750.00 per troy oz., -50.00 (-0.22%).[xi]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000026.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.38 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.95.     In Botswana Pula, one greenback equals 10.58 and in Brazilian Real, a buck equals 5.24 and in Brunei Dollar, one dollar equals 1.32 of theirs.[xii]   In other business news, Bayer’s stocks take a tumble as a federal judge refuses to toss the ongoing lawsuit against Roundup which is under their umbrella of products.   
  79. 2021 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.175 per gallon, $2.871 in Florida, $3.927 in Hawaii, and $3.565 in Washington state.[xiii]    Let’s look at one other location- U.S. Alaska: $3.320.  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- Belarus: $2.928 per U.S. Gallon.[xiv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,337,169,021,764 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.  Regarding gasoline prices, economists believe that higher gas prices won’t affect travel on Memorial Day.
  80. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been the so-called ‘border czar’ now for 66 days and NO one has seen her anywhere near the U.S.-Mexican border.  Speaking of the border disaster, One America News shared some updated statistics on just how dreadful things are at the border.  The costs of caring for the massive number of illegal aliens to the American people today is $584,855,552.  Next, the total cost of caring for these frigging illegal aliens for calendar year 2021 is $160,584,892,416.  The number of known illegals to have crossed the U.S.-Mexico border this year is 1,645,866 while the total number of illegals lurking within the shadows of the United States is 35,645,864.   (Note- we have long said the total number of illegals in the U.S. is between 35-50 million.  It would appear that One America News is backing us up on this number).  
  81. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– The New York Times is praising Democrats’ silence on the disastrous mess along the southern border.  Meanwhile, GOP lawmakers were denied access to a DEA facility near El Paso, Texas, by the goons doing the bidding of the Biden regime.  Elsewhere, Rep. Buddy Carter, R-GA 1st congressional district, says, ‘states are playing shell games with illegal alien payments given them by the feds.’   Next, Rep. Kat Cammack, R-FL 3rd congressional district, says the border problem is not helped by ‘Facebook running ads for Mexican cartels.’
  82. 2021 Thursday H: Foreign News / Overseas News– News reports claim a Russian naval intelligence ship is sailing in the waters just off the coast of Hawaii.  Nothing to see here, folks.  (Yeah, right).  Next, in Iran, the third time in a week a chemical plant housing a nuclear reactor blew up killing one person outright and wounding another two.  Who would do such a dastardly thing, or did it happen because the Iranians are morons?  We await the final word on this event.   Elsewhere, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says that ‘external forces are seeking to damage the U.S.-Colombia relationship.’  (Note- most likely those forces are next door in Venezuela).  Moving on, Hong Kong might throw away loads of Chi-Vi vaccines citing citizens’ mistrust in both the former British crown colony’s and mainland China’s governments as well as the ongoing swirling misinformation about both the vaccines and the disease.[xvi]  Finally, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad won a historic fourth term as dictator, uh, president, in a landslide election.  Wow.
  83. 2021 Thursday I: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– Speaking of COVID, Dr. Marty Makary says that ‘half of non-vaccinated Americans are immune to COVID-19’ and that ‘health officials relied more on government mandates than on the science.’  Meanwhile, while Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci continues obfuscating, sputtering, and stammering about his friends, the Chi-Coms’ responsibility in infecting the entire world, Senator Joni Ernst, R-IA, says, ‘it’s laughable’ for Dr. Fauci to ‘plead ignorance’ over what his pals at the Wuhan Institute of Virology were up to in the lab.  Elsewhere, we learn from a recent study that people who have had mild COVID-19 infections can gain lifelong immunity.  (Note- speaking of ‘Phony Tony,’ he says the vaccine will be available for young kids by the end of 2021; we ain’t giving it to our kids when 99.98-percent of young kids survive the crap).
  84. 2021 Thursday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News–  In a Newark, New Jersey, federal courtroom, 26-year-old letter carrier Nicolas Beauchene pleaded guilty to one count of ‘desertion of mail.’  The punk admitted to destroying 99 2020 Election ballots as well as another 2,000 pieces of mail.  And bit by bit by bit, the dominoes continue falling.  We will see a change in the outcome of the 2020 Elections.  Count on it.  (Note- in other curious news regarding the U.S. Postal Service, we continue hearing more and more that the USPS is spying on the social media of the American people under order from the Joe Biden regime.  WTF?)
  85. 2021 Thursday K: Joe Biden Regime News I– Today, we learned that “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been leading infrastructure talks with Congress and not flipping ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden.  Yet another sign the senile old fool is not calling the shots.   Next, former 71st U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Lawrence “Larry” Summers, Democrat, says that Joe Biden’s stimulus plan will lead to rising inflation, inflation current Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, seems to be encouraging via increased government spending.  In other regime news, Joe Biden lifts ALL sanctions on the Russkies so they can now proceed with the construction of the Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline running beneath the Baltic Sea to Germany- and they called Donald J. Trump a ‘Russian stooge!’  Joe Biden is a stooge of the Russians, the Chi-Coms, and even the rat-eating Iranians.  This scumbag must be evicted from office NOW.
  86. 2021 Thursday L: Joe Biden Regime News II– Speaking of being a stooge of the Chi-Coms, Joe Biden is pushing a flipping $6 trillion federal budget for the next fiscal year.  All this money will come from the Chi-Coms.  Next, according to sources, the Biden regime is denying help to U.S. diplomats dealing with the so-called ‘Havana syndrome,’ the one in which microwaves of unknown origin are harming our overseas diplomats which is indeed an act of war upon the United States.  Meanwhile, the regime has not even looked at page 1 of the GOP $928 billion infrastructure offer, one Senator “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell says the GOP is willing to increase.  Finally, the regime dismisses the GOP’s plan for distribution of COVID-19 relief funds.  What’s up with the Biden regime.
  87. 2021 Thursday M: Joe Biden Regime News III– The lying POS Joe Biden has trotted up to Capitol Hill to head the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives- the ATF- David Chipman is being blasted by Republicans over his whacked-out stance on guns, gun control, and his whacked out ideas of arresting legal owners of AR-15 rifles while saying nothing about Hunter Biden[xvii] lying on his FBI background check and whether he would issue an arrest warrant for the scumbag should be become the next ATF director.  In other news favorable to the regime, Senator Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren, DS-MA, introduces a bill to treble the budget of the Internal Revenue Service.   Music to the Bidenistas’ ears.
  88. 2021 Thursday N: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Well-known conservative commentator Todd Starnes shared a story about Hillsdale High School valedictorian Elizabeth Turner who was told by principal Amy Goldsmith she could not mention or reference to God Who is extremely important in her life.  After lawyers entered the fray, the courts overruled the principal, and her speech can continue as written at the graduation ceremonies.   Next, Facebook says it will NO longer censor posts pointing the finger at the Chi-Coms for making this pandemic in the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s laboratory.
  89. 2021 Thursday O: Political News I– Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom, DS-CA, is on the way out because the state’s largest labor union- the SEIU- has abandoned him to his fate and is calling for him to go.  NOW.  Next, after repeated death threats against Mike Lindell of My Pillow, a court rules that the manufacturer’s address can be kept secret while the Dominion Voting Systems’ fraudulent lawsuit against him continues.  They are claiming their product is as clean as the wind-driven snow.  (Note- everyone knows that Dominion is a corrupt, evil company that sells election outcomes to the highest bidder.  IF their home country of Canada won’t use their products, what does that say about the honesty of the company or its products?  Answer: NOT MUCH).
  90. 2021 Thursday P: Political News II– Today, we learned three Democratic members of Congress- Steve “Bucket O’ Fried Chicken” Cohen, DS-TN 9th congressional district, Barbara “Blacktivist” Lee, DS-CA 13th congressional district, and Bobby “Black Panther” Rush, DS-IL 1st congressional district, hosted a tete a tete in which former Black Panther convicted murderers were featured guests.  This event occurred on May 10, 2021.  Next, Los Angeles Mayor Eric “The Grub” Garcetti is going to be the next U.S. ambassador to India which is good because he would never win re-election.  Speaking of ambassadorships, failed Senator Claire McCaskill, DS-MO, who lost in a landslide to now-Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, a couple of election cycles ago also stands in line for an ambassadorship somewhere in Europe.  Hmmm, maybe Albania?  Finally, California continues hemorrhaging population as people continue fleeing for better environs.
  91. 2021 Thursday Q: Political News III– Lily Batchelder- Joe Biden’s nominee to be Assistant Secretary for Tax Policy under Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen so far is flying under the radar in her confirmation hearings- so says Grant Stinchfield of Newsmax TV.  She believes that Americans must be taxed on FUTURE INCOME and that taxation should vary via (1) race (2) gender (3) education (4) age (5) education and IQ (6) zip code and (7) behavioral profile.  This woman should NOT be confirmed.  Period.  In other political news, President Donald J. Trump says he plans to run a third time in 2024- provided he remains in good health.  Speaking of the commander-in-chief, he and personal attorney- and ‘America’s Mayor’- Rudy Giuliani have asked a judge to toss the Capitol Hill Riots 01-06-2021 lawsuit dimwitted Democrats launched against them.  We concur.  Toss it.   The 45th president also said of his administration compared to the Biden regime, the ‘U.S. was energy independent whereas now- it’s not- thanks to Biden’s policies.’  Finally, famed Democratic strategist James Carville said of his own party that there’s too much ‘arrogance’ and ‘urban smugness’ running the show.
  92. 2021 Thursday R: Political News IV– Former Obama era employee Christine Wormuth received unanimous confirmation in the U.S. Senate to become the first female U.S. Secretary of the Army.  Congratulations.  Elsewhere, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, offered an amendment to a bill being debated that would forbid ‘gain of function’ experiments by medical scientists seeking to amplify the effects of already-dangerous viruses.  He received unanimous consent for his amendment.  Excellent.
  93. 2021 Thursday S: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– Protesters going against a Washington abortion clinic have been granted more access in which to protest the Pro-Death Movement by a judge.  Meanwhile, down in Texas, the Lone Star State’s Senate has passed a so-called ‘trigger bill’ that will kick in IF Roe v. Wade is overturned.  Should it kick in, it will criminalize all abortion providers with lengthy prison sentences for the murder and dismemberment of the unborn.  Excellent.
  94. 2021 Thursday T: Miscellaneous News I– Clay Travis and Buck Sexton will be taking over Rush Limbaugh’s time slot.   Next, the Oscars will once again allow films on streaming services to compete for honors.  Meanwhile, the International Olympic Committee disputes a recent report that says that ‘even if Japan refuses to host the Olympics due to the Chi-Vi, the Olympics will STILL go on.’  Who will hold them?  Oildale, California?  Finally, last evening three Texas cops were shot during a 10-hour SWAT standoff.  The officers will recover, and the POS shooter is in custody.  
  95. 2022 Friday: Stick around and discover the news of the day along with all of us…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by the Beach Boys is an interesting albeit an odd one.  “Stack-o-Tracks” came out on August 19, 1968 and did something NO other band of which we know and revere at the time as it was ALL INSTRUMENTAL and came with the music sheets and lyrics among other things.  Thus, we have all the BACKING TRACKS to 15 of their earlier and biggest tunes all in one place.  If you can find this oddity, seek it out as it would make for a glorious Karaoke night at the neighborhood watering hole.  Great stuff by a much-beloved band.  Seek it out and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

2016 Thursday: The Chi-Coms demonstrate their sexism for all to see today when the Xinhua News Agency lays into Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen by labeling her a ‘political extremist’ and then saying that because she is unmarried and has no children is mentally and emotionally unstable.

  57. 2020 Tuesday: Communist China’s Wuhan Bat Virus Crisis continues racking up numbers around the world although millions of Americans are leaving their homes and returning to normal lives no matter what authoritarian-leaning governors demand they do.  Good for the freedom-seekers!  Here are the numbers for the day: 5,559,130 confirmed cases, 348,610 confirmed deaths, but 2,271,268 confirmed recoveries which dwarfs the numbers of deaths.  If only Blue State governors would report the numbers of recoveries!

Gavin Newsom, you sir, are little more than a statewide embarrassment.  Shame on you.  Next, here are the numbers for the Aloha State: 643 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 592 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Gov. David Ige.  Finally, here are the numbers for the Evergreen State: 20,133 confirmed cases, 1,078 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries; Governor Jay Inslee, you are a worthless POS.

  61. 2021 Wednesday A: NOTE: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 289,149 Chi-Vi deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 170,460 deaths  
  62. 2021 Wednesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,780,845 confirmed cases, 63,010 confirmed deaths, and 2,022,699 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,316,142 confirmed cases, 36,647 confirmed deaths, and 1,934,257 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 35,924 confirmed cases, 496 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 432,993 confirmed cases, 5,780 confirmed deaths, and 211,014 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., North Carolina: they have 999,567 confirmed cases, 13,031 confirmed deaths, and 972,066 confirmed recoveries.[ix]    President Donald J. Trump says that the early investment in ‘VID vaccines probably saved tens of millions of American lives, the very same vaccines for which, drooling old Joe Biden takes complete credit. 
  63. 2021 Wednesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,408 confirmed cases, 6,406 confirmed deaths, and 832,566 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Ghana, a historical conspirator with the Europeans in the Atlantic Slave Trade: 93,711 cases of the virus, 783 confirmed deaths and 91,707 confirmed recoveries.[x]

  65. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.170 per gallon, $2.871 in Florida, $3.918 in Hawaii, and $3.565 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- U.S. Northern Marianas Islands: $4.329.  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- Tunisia: $2.913 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,332,690,445,701 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  66. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Today is Day 65 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be holding this prestigious NO-SHOW job and ‘no show’ she has.  No one has seen her anywhere near the southern border and so it goes.  Meanwhile, Texas Attorney General tells Newsmax that ‘Joe Biden’s border policies are a STIMULUS for the Mexican cartels.’  Moving on, outrage is growing over the federal government’s dumping of illegal aliens across the interior of the country- and even in Hawaii, according to Chefs Lilah and Itzi- in the dead of night.  Buses or airliners bring them in, dump them, and then take off lickety split.   According to Newsmax, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro “I Hate My Country” Mayorkas wants to welcome even more illegal aliens that what are already flooding across our border.  WTF?  Hunting licenses anyone?
  67. 2021 Wednesday G: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– According to news reports, Joe Biden has ordered U.S. spy agencies to prepare a definitive report on the origins of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  We suspect the final report will shill for the Chi-Coms and drop the blame somewhere else like, uh, say, on the U.S. military.  Remember when the Chi-Coms tried to blame the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s COVID-19 outbreak on U.S. military assets that somehow got it into communist China and let it go in Wuhan?  Incredible.  Still, there are morons who will indeed believe it.  Speaking of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, at a U.S. Senate hearing today, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, said that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci must testify about all the money given to that ‘medical institution.’  Hear-hear!  Elsewhere, Attorney General Eric Schmitt, R-MO, has launched a lawsuit against both the Chinese Communist Party and the Wuhan Institute of Virology over its costly mishandling of the Kung Flu Pandemic.  Excellent.  Finally, as the Chi-Vi lab leak theory appears more and more like the God’s honest truth, it has exposed that there are NO checks on the so-called ‘fact checkers.’  Hell, we knew that.
  68. 2021 Wednesday H: Business News– Wall Street’s new watchdog- SEC Chairman Gary Gensler- told Congress today that special scrutiny will fall on cryptocurrencies and on SPACs- special purpose acquisition companies.   In other business news, President Donald J. Trump says that when HE left office, the United States was ‘energy independent’ and that the U.S. was the number one exporter of energy to the rest of the world.  This occurred within the span of four years whereas now with feeble Joe Biden lurking about the White House, we are importing our energy supply and word has it that gasoline could soon hit $7 per gallon.   Revolution anyone?   Finally, Jeff Bezos is set to hand over Amazon’s CEO job on July 5, 2021.
  69. 2021 Wednesday I: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– Arizona has banned mass mailing of election ballots in all future elections.  Excellent.  As for the 2020 Elections audit in that state and in others, the scrutiny continues. 
  70. 2021 Wednesday J: Joe Biden Regime News I– Joe Biden continues his war on President Donald J. Trump.  Today, he purged FOUR Trump appointees[xviii] on the U.S. Commission for Fine Arts.  You go, Joe, you go.  In other regime news, critics are questioning the wisdom of the upcoming Joe Biden-Vladimir Putin summit.  (Note- we think Vladimir is going to bulldoze a drooling, feeble old Joe into a ditch and cover him up).  Elsewhere, the Biden regime sidestepped questions regarding as to whether the Chi-Coms would pay ANY PRICE for inflicting their Chi-Com pandemic upon the world.
  71. 2021 Wednesday K: Whacked-Out News Of The Day– The Dems are pushing for the spending of $7.1 trillion for all the crazy programs the losers are currently pushing.  This amount of money is more than the money spent fighting World War II and supplying our allies with the tools of war.  Why not just allow the Chi-Coms to buy our flipping country?
  72. 2021 Wednesday L: Political News I– a new AARP poll says that a vast majority of Americans over age 50 are staunchly opposed to any cutting back of Medicare and Social Security to pay for the massive amount of deficit spending going on under the Biden regime.  Who can blame them?  Elsewhere, a new CEI poll says that the public does NOT want to pay for massive Green New Deal spending which millions of Americans view as being little more than another transfer of wealth from those possessing it to those too lazy to go out and earn it.  Meanwhile, a judge smacks down the motion by CNN to dismiss the defamation lawsuit brought against them by esteemed legal scholar, professor, and attorney Dr. Alan Dershowitz. 
  73. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News II– President Donald J. Trump told Newsmax TV that ‘communist China took extremely diligent care of both Hunter and Joe Biden.  Amen.  Elsewhere, former Pennsylvania RINO senator and CNN babbling head Rick Santorum- a fellow who has run for the GOP presidential nomination on numerous occasions- says it’s ‘time to invest in real infrastructure spending.’  (Note- he was fired last week from CNN for having said something derogatory about Native Americans, so it appears he is attempting to remain relevant).   In other news, Kelley Paul told ‘Rand Paul haters’ that her husband and she have guns.  They are always under threat.  Next, former state prosecutor Aramis Ayala threw her hat in the ring to challenge Rep.  Val Demings, DS-FL 10th congressional district, in 2022.  Excellent.  Finally, crackpot Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. has convened a grand jury that will meet for six months seeking evidence into the crimes of President Donald J. Trump.  Yet another persecution by the fleas nipping at the ankles of the 45th president.
  74. 2021 Wednesday N: Political News III– Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, has formed a new PAC sparking rumors she may be running for the White House in 2024.  Next CNN’s Jeff Zucker says ‘it may have been wrong for Chris “The Curmudgeon” Cuomo to advise his older brother, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov, on his myriad sex scandals.  We thought a while back that CNN forbade the ‘Curmudgeon’ NOT to cover his gubernatorial brother yet advise him he did.  NO wonder CNN is a bogus ‘network.’  Meanwhile, unabashed supporter of President Donald J. Trump, Sean Parnell
