DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 582

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

Easter Monday

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

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

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

ENDNOTES:


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

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

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

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

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

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

JTF: Not looking forward to the new “Midway” movie because all of the CGI I see in promo commercials for this so-called ‘blockbuster’ film make it look like a video game- do it right or don’t do it at all!

What’s more, the Chinese have loads of money so how about working hard to replicate reality and making films that stand the test of time as “Tora! Tora! Tora!” has? That movie will be with us for generations to come whereas later recreations such as “Pearl Harbor” (2001), although a box office success, were bashed by reviewers and movie buffs alike.

364 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020

 

Enough with CGI, let’s get back to making movies the ‘right way’

Kula, HI 96790, 11-07-2019 Thursday:   BIG MOVIE coming out, “Midway.” For the United States in the Pacific Theater during World War II, this was the turning point that gave us the upper hand. It was a brutal fight and it required some amazing deception on our part. The United States had no clue as to where the next strike by Imperial Japanese naval forces would occur, would it continue in the Aleutian Islands, would there be a strike on the Panama Canal, or would it be Midway Island, part of the physical Hawaiian Island Chain but far to the west at the archipelago’s extreme tip.

Seeing as how American cryptographers had broken the Japanese Navy’s signals codes the United States decided to try a ruse with which to gauge Tokyo’s true intentions. They decided to float a false message saying that Midway Island was having a problem with the water purification system and required help from Pearl Harbor. Right on cue, signals intelligence picked up Japanese chatter on the topic and so we were able to scramble U.S. Naval assets to intercept them and hopefully destroy them.

That was precisely what happened. Although we lost ships and planes in the fray, the Japanese lost more, mostly because of luck on our part and numerous tactical missteps on theirs. Admiral Nagumo, the man in charge of Japanese forces made some errors in the arming of his strike aircraft and were on the decks of several aircraft carriers full of fuel and bombs when our aircraft appeared overhead and began the attack.

The resulting destruction put the Japanese on defense through the remainder of the war. However, they were not going to give up without a fight and so the war went on for another two-plus years before two nuclear bombs devastated Hiroshima and then Nagasaki which forced the leaders of the beleaguered country to finally sue for peace.

We have had some great movies on the conflict between the United States and the Empire of Japan such as “Tora! Tora! Tora!” (1970) which was amazing, absolutely amazing, as its producers put much effort into recreating the event as well as they could. Actual aircraft (or close proximities) and ships and thousands of cast members recreated a horrible time in a fabulous way. The realism was stupendous and the film was a historical masterpiece. If in doubt, rent or buy it and watch it.

Nowadays, CGI, aka ‘computer generated imagery,’ seems to be the rage. I am watching the previews for the new Midway film and I feel like I am watching one of my grandkid’s video games. Video games. Wow. Can it not get any worse to create a film in which it all appears ‘phony?’ Is this where moviemaking has taken us? If so, I don’t want any part of this mess.

I realize in many circumstances that GCI is cost effective as movie producers no longer have to arrange costly, dangerous stunts, because they can replicate military equipment, explosions, destruction, and all manner of other special effects by using computers to do the work. What’s important is, how ‘realistic’ those effects look.

I cannot tell you the last time I have witnessed an actual explosion on film, either in a Hollywood blockbuster movie or in a TV show. Everything from The Hobbit movies to television dramas all rely on CGI to speed things up, lower costs, and to make a saleable product that millennials might enjoy.

An excellent place to see the difference between realistic movie effects and computer-generated imagery is by watching the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy and then the subsequent “Hobbit” movies. The first three are visual masterpieces whereas the latter three, although fine, definitely stand apart from the first three.

In the “Lord of the Rings” movies, the producers labored long and hard to create armies of orcs, played by human actors, supplemented by CGI and each of them were excellent representations. In the second grouping, “The Hobbit” movies, one definitely could tell that the orcs (and the elves) were all computer-generated and it was easily evident to the casual viewer. Only individual actors portraying most of the characters were in costume but the bulk of them were all phony.

Now, I will say this to the readership: “The Hobbit” movies, although using loads of CGI, were works of art when compared to the commercials I am seeing for “Midway.” I get it, to recreate the aircraft as they did in “Tora! Tora! Tora!” would cost loads of money to do, I suspect that IF the producers did it, the film would be a visual masterpiece as the 1970 film depicting the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor was.

Nowadays, everything is on the cheap, on the low-down, which is crazy seeing as how the People’s Republic of China seems to have a hand in the making of every Hollywood movie nowadays so what is it about doing things on the cheap?

What’s more, the Chinese have loads of money so how about working hard to replicate reality and making films that stand the test of time as “Tora! Tora! Tora!” has? That movie will be with us for generations to come whereas later recreations such as “Pearl Harbor” (2001), although a box office success, were bashed by reviewers and movie buffs alike. (Ben Affleck, really?)

Watching TV is the same thing. Every crime drama recreates explosions, fires, and automobile wrecks. The trick is in determining which special effects are realistic enough to pass first inspection such as on a show like “Chicago Fire” or “Chicago PD” or are ludicrous and laughable such as much of what certain cable channels regularly peddle as top-notch dramas (not going to mention any names).

Well, thanks for allowing me to vent today, if I go to see a historical movie, I want it to be as close to reality as possible. A movie from 1988, “The Beast”, about Russian troops in Afghanistan is a prime example as what a war movie should be unlike much of the crap moviemakers try to slip in under the wire. Perhaps when old folks like me are gone, it won’t matter anymore but as long as we exist, better make ‘em right.

See you tomorrow.

Presently, I am working up in Kula at one of the restaurants high up on Haleakala—it is a glorious life. The facsimiles you see of me were created by the famed up-and-coming, Bakersfield, California, street artist, the fabulous Simone.
