  68. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day No. 97 for ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 3 since her first visit.  Meanwhile, One America News shares the latest statistics on the border disaster: (1) Cost this Day of caring for all these frigging illegal aliens: $510,324,832.  Imagine what that money could do for homeless Americans?  (2) Total Cost this year of caring for the avalanche of illegal aliens: $195,578,871,808- imagine what that money could do for Americans harmed by the Xi Jinping Bat Flu?  (3) Total number of illegal alien vermin who have crossed this year: 2,004,526.  Finally, (4) Total number of illegal aliens estimated to be lurking within the back alleyways of the United States (conservative estimate): 36,004,528.  We have said since the blog began back in 2009 that we estimated back then between 35-50 million whereas now, we estimate there are between 75-100 illegal aliens sucking away at the teats of the American taxpayers.  Round them up and dump them in Mexico City- let the Mexicans deal with them.
  69. 2021 Monday G: Foreign News / Overseas News II– U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken pressures Israel to make more concessions to the criminal Palestinians while dismissing the Abraham Accords.  The man is loser- what more can be said?  We learn today that that puling putz Joe Biden may reverse U.S. recognition of the Golan Heights as part of Israel.  Wow, Joe.  In other foreign and overseas news, we learn that faux ‘first lady’ Dr. Jill Biden will replace her bumbling hubby at the Summer Olympics in Tokyo.  Elsewhere, Iran tells the IAEA to f**k off that it’s not going to share any data on its (criminal) nuclear programs until AFTER the U.S. knuckles down and rejoins the JCPOA, the Iran nuclear deal.  Meanwhile, former Israeli UN Ambassador Danny Danon says that ‘rejoining the Iranian nuclear deal will threaten the entire (FREE) world.’
  70. 2021 Monday H: Political News I– Yesterday, Congressman Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district and House minority leader, has released a framework with which to rein in BIG TECH…we shall see.   Next, U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi is looking to set up a lopsided 13-member panel to ‘investigate’ the events of January 06, 2021, the FALSE FLAG OPERATION created by Pelosi and her sycophants to tar and feather President Donald J. Trump’s supporters and to instill a measure of fear into any weak-kneed Republican who had any thoughts on going against the fraudulent 2020 Presidential Election results.  One day, “Mumbles” is going to pay a big price for her perfidy.
  71. 2021 Monday I: Political News II– Former Congressman Jim Renacci, R-OH 16th congressional district, has thrown his hat in the ring to challenge pathetic RINO Governor Mike DeWine.  Good.  This POS must lose his seat.  Next, Manhattan prosecutors announce what we all know- they are not going to charge President Donald J. Trump with any crimes as there are NO crimes with which to charge him unless they begin making crap up.  It was all a political ploy just as threatening now to investigate Don Jr.’s so-called ‘posse.’   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump expresses his disappointment with former U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr who has demonstrated that he is little more than another piece of the swamp-dwelling vermin.
  72. 2021 Monday J: Political News III– A new Oxford University poll says that ONLY 29-percent of Americans trusts the mainstream media.  Next, Chicago Mayor Lori “Frog-Face” Lightfoot, CPUSA, blames others for what is going on in the Windy City.  Over the past weekend, 78 people were shot and seven killed.  “Frog-Face” Lightfoot continues blaming everyone else for her own stupidity and ignorance.  People of Chicago, hold a special election and get this nut-bag out of the mayor’s office.  Elsewhere, Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, visited Mt. Rushmore and blasted the (Obama)-Biden administration for its refusal to allow fireworks at the fabled mountain this year.  The Bidenistas claim there is some threat of fire danger while we know he is shutting it down because it’s patriotic.
  73. 2021 Monday K: Fourth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award Updates–  Today, I Chef B.H. Cznystekinki put Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell and former U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr on the list.  Senator McConnell, well, he’s always been a rat although at times he seems to grow a spine and then returns to being vermin.  As for AG Barr, we genuinely thought that he was an ally on President Donald J. Trump but folks, he’s just as big a rat as is his buddy, “Cocaine Mitch.”  They can continue saying that 2020 was the FAIREST ELECTION in the history of the United States but let me put it like this: IF what happened to Trump happened to the Democrats, they would still be burning everything down and screeching like the gutter snipes they are for blood.
  74. 2021 Monday L: Moron News I– Little Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, CPUSA 14th congressional district blows off concerns of rising violent crime as the little bug-eyed dimwit continues braying like the left-wing sheeple that she is, “DEFUND THE POLICE, DEFUND THE POLICE, DEFUND THE POLICE!”  Look, b***h, just shut your dumb-ass mouth.
  75. 2021 Monday: Last night Joe Biden was bombing Iranian targets in Syria and Iraq.  Have we entered into a state of war today?  Stick around and find out with us…

  48. 2003 Thursday: Seventeen years ago, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld anti-sodomy laws.  Now, in a 6-3 ruling in the Lawrence v.

  51. 2006 Monday: You know, things must be really frigging bad in Belgium when the nation announces that it’s going to distribute electronic ideas to ALL children aged 12 and under which will carry special codes and will connect them to a national emergency hotline.  WTF is going on in Belgium.  Elsewhere, we must have a Republican in the White House!  Oh, wait, we do: the George W. Bush administration is upset that the New York Times- the so-called newspaper of record- has exposed a secret government program that allows the tracking of terrorists via their financial actions.  Wow.  Never flipping fails.  Anyhow, President Bush calls it ‘disgraceful.’  (Note- send the editor of the damned newspaper to prison, George.  Abraham Lincoln sure the f**k did).
  52. 2007 Tuesday: The International Atomic Energy Agency announces the dispatch of a team to North Korea to see if the government is truly willing to shut down its nuclear programs.  Of course, they won’t and they never will.

  54. 2009 Friday: Jihadists in Baghdad attack a market where local residents are going about their daily lives when a bomb goes off delivering another 13 poor souls to Allah and leaving dozens more most likely wishing they could have gone, too.  What the hell is wrong with these barbaric people?

  56. 2011 Sunday: As violence gets out of hand across Syria, enemies of President Bashar al-Assad release videos showing ‘Syrian soldiers’ mistreating children.  In turn, Damascus releases statistics showing that at least 400 of their uniformed personnel have been murdered by rampaging Islamist thugs.  Elsewhere, after crybabies aboard the 10-vessel of flotilla of anti-Semites blubber that ‘Israel is intimidating journalists attempting to break the blockade and get into the Gaza Strip,’ Israel says that it ‘won’t sanction the journalists.’  (Note- f**k the journalists, they are a bunch of Jew-hating losers).
  57. 2012 Tuesday: The police chief of Khartoum, Sudan, says ‘enough is enough’ and orders a violent crackdown on demonstrators screeching for CHANGE during the Arab Spring.  Meanwhile, some maggots set off a bomb outside the Tunisian embassy in Tripoli, Libya.  No injuries are reported.
  58. 2013 Wednesday: At the Appeals Court level, the 2008 Proposition 8 Ballot Measure loses, which allows same-sex marriage in the state of California to continue unimpeded.  However, the U.S. Supreme Court rules that a portion of the Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional and in violation of the Fifth Amendment to the Constitution.   Meanwhile, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights estimates that so far, more than 100,000 people have been killed in the civil war between government forces and ISIS scumbags.

  60. 2015 Friday: In yet another ruling designed to destroy the United States of America, the U.S. Supreme Court rules that same-sex marriage is a fundamental right for citizens and forces it onto all 50 states.  This is against the will of the people and yet, the court in a 5-4 decision takes it out of the hands of ALL Americans.
  61. 2016 Sunday: After a month-long struggle to reclaim the city of Fallujah, Iraqi forces finally vanquish the ISIS scum in an all-out blitz.  God bless ‘em!   Meanwhile, Panama opens the third set of locks- ones that cost the country approximately $5.25 billion (we believe funded by communist China)- that will virtually double the canal’s shipping traffic.  Elsewhere, communists attack a white pride rally in Sacramento, California.  Numerous marchers are stabbed by members of Antifa and Black Lives Matter who swoop in and cause a great deal of mayhem. 
  62. 2017 Monday: Corruption in Brazil continues unabated as state prosecutors hit President Michel Temer with corruption charges.   Meanwhile, in ever-lively Caracas, a pair of rebellious police pilots attack the nation’s supreme court, doing some damage.  Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms release Nobel Peace Prize laureate and political activist Liu Xiaobo from prison following his diagnosis of incurable liver cancer.  Wow.  Guess his organs weren’t worth harvesting.
  63. 2018 Tuesday: Shock of shocks, the U.S. Supreme Court upholds one of President Donald J. Trump’s travel bans against mostly Muslim nations where terrorism flourishes but also Venezuela, North Korea, and one or two others.  Elsewhere, as usual, the Palestinians are causing trouble via launching incendiary balloons over the wall and into Israel where they ignite fires and cause problems for civilized people.  Thus, the Israeli air force launches airstrikes on a convoy of vehicles that intelligence sources identified as the culprits lighting them up.  NO more balloons.
  64. 2019 Wednesday: At the airport in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, inspectors discover approximately 5,000 turtles concealed in luggage bound for India.  The smugglers are arrested.  Meanwhile, U.S. President Donald J. Trump continues demanding the delinquent Germans pay their NATO obligations.  The Germans have long enjoyed a free ride in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization but it’s about to end.  President Trump asks a pertinent question: ‘why are we protecting YOU from the Russians again?’ It seems as though the Germans want a cozy relationship with Vladimir Putin, perhaps to rekindle the ‘good old days’ of 1945-1991?
  65. 2020 Friday:  The FBI now is launching a task force to track down the violent rioters in Washington, D.C., who have damaged, vandalized, or destroyed various monuments, churches, and other property within the federal enclave.  Round ‘em up, prosecute them, and send them to federal prison.  Worthless scumbags.
  66. 2020 Friday A: Here are today’s stats for Xi Jinping’s infamous Wuhan Bat Flu, the planet first: 9,641,472 confirmed cases, 489,990 confirmed deaths, and 4,865,562 confirmed recoveries.  Thank you, communist China.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 2,511,453 confirmed cases, 126,924 confirmed deaths, and 771,155 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day, aka the World-Famous AICPENDBLOG.COM, has chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the numbers first for the Golden State: 200,461 confirmed cases, 5,812 confirmed deaths, but as has become the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the Aloha State, here are today’s stats: 815 confirmed cases, 70 confirmed deaths, and 696 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in Washington state, here are today’s stats: 30,855 confirmed cases, 1,304 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, numbers in the U.S. have commenced going up again with 46,326 new cases.

Eleanor Norton Holmes- as a voting member- as well as surround the White House with angry mobs.  California Rep. Maxine Waters, Democrat, one of the biggest crooks in the lower chamber says, ‘if the district does not receive statehood, it’s because of…RACISM!’  Screw her.

  73. 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 $4.268 per gallon, $2.939 in Florida, $4.004 in Hawaii, and $3.711 in Washington state.[xiii]    Let’s look at one other location- Nevada: $3.707.  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- Cambodia: $3.946 per U.S. Gallon.[xiv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,453,093,083,972 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- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Netherlands, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Israel with $49 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).[xvi]
  74. 2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I–  Okay, we have rolled the day counter back on ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris seeing as how she forced herself to make an appearance yesterday at the El Paso Sector on the southern border.  Today is Day No. 1 in which, she has not shown up on the job.  By our count, today is Day No. 95 in which, she has been placed in charge by Joe Biden’s earpiece of solving the border crisis.  (Note- minefields would do one hell of a job as would rattlesnakes and alligators).  Anyhow, here are the stats regarding illegal alien numbers and cost of caring for them as compiled and released by One America News: (1) Cost this Day of caring for the illegal aliens: $526,585,632.  (2) Cost this Year of caring for these illegal aliens: $193,403,338,752.  Next, number of illegal aliens who either swam the Rio Grande or climbed the fence (or overstayed their visas): 1,982,229.  Finally, (4) estimated total number of illegal aliens running amok in the country: 35,982,228.  (Note- as we say every day, since the inception of this bold, culinary professional-run blog- back in 2009- we have said the numbers were 35-50 million wet—-s back then whereas now, we believe the numbers are between 75-100 million.  Too damned many!)  (OAN cited sources- Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  75. 2021 Saturday G: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– The El Paso, Texas, holding pens for illegal alien minors is under close scrutiny over the reports of sexual abuse including rapes, violence, and other negative societal behaviors going on between the inmates there.  Shame.  Where’s “Kooky Kamala” Harris when you need her to actually do some work?  Speaking of the disaster, a new Harvard poll says that ’80-percent of Americans view the southern border as an out-and-out disaster, a calamity, a catastrophe.’  Amen.
  76. 2021 Saturday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– John “Perpetual Wars” Bolton says the change in government in Israel may give the slobberer-in-chief, “Cho-Mo Joe” Biden an out on the U.S. returning to the Iran nuclear deal.  Regarding Iran, there are reports that the senile usurper may lift the U.S. sanctions from mass-murderer and crazed jihadist, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.  Wow.  Is that what Barack Hussein Obama is saying in your earpiece?
  77. 2021 Saturday I: Health and Medical Alerts– Republican senators are urging the CDC to end mask mandates for all public transportation.   In other healthcare news, Johnson & Johnson settles its portion of the opioid crises cases with a $230 million payout. 
  78. 2021 Saturday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Two cities in Vermont have allowed illegal aliens the right to vote in local elections which means they will be voting in ALL elections.  It is what it is.  Elsewhere, the Arizona 2020 election audit wraps up with the report coming out sometime next month.  Democrats’ teeth are chattering in fear.  In other elections/voting news, former Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga 9th congressional district, says that the ‘Biden regime’s DOJ is going after the Peach State’s new election laws because they failed in pushing through their H.R. 1 / S. 1, aka the “For the People Act,” aka “The John Lewis Voting Rights Act” or whatever crap they are calling it today.  Sounds about right.
  79. 2021 Saturday K: Political News I– A pair of Capitol Hill police officers- one of them a tatted-up freak-o-zoid- met with Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd to discuss their trauma from the Democrat Party’s FALSE FLAG OPERATION on January 06, 2021.  These flipping losers believe the entire Capitol Hill Police Department deserves a medal for this ginned-up ersatz action instigated by Antifa and Black Lives Matter.  (Note- whatever happened to codes of professionalism?  Since when do we have a member of law enforcement with tats up and down the sides of their necks, tats no one we know can identify?  This crap would not have flown even a decade ago).
  80. 2021 Saturday L: Political News II–  Former Acting Customs and Border Patrol Commissioner Mark Morgan told Newsmax that ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris’ ‘border visit’ was all ‘optics,’ a ‘photo op.’  He said that were it a serious visit, it would have been to ground zero where the waves of illegal aliens crash onto the shore around the clock: the Rio Grande Valley.  That’s where one goes to see the honest-to-God border insanity.  Speaking of the border calamity, Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-TX 28th congressional district, says that the CBP needs resources, not ‘pats on the back.’  (Hint-hint- that means YOU, “Kooky Kamala”).  
  81. 2021 Saturday M: Political News III– Speaking of “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka “Willie Brown’s Mattress,” says that “EXTREME PROGRESS” has been made on the southern border meaning NONE has been made, it’s wide open.  She continues blaming President Donald J. Trump for the disaster befalling the border which anyone with half-a-brain or more knows is BULLS**T.  Trump handed the Biden regime a quiet border and had the goober in the White House continued building the wall and enforcing the laws, the border would be even better.   (Note- President Trump said it today, ‘the Biden regime is a complete and total disaster’- “I told you so.”  Former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows says that when it comes to being the ‘border czar,’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris is the “GREAT PRETENDER.”  No matter what she says or does, the GOP continues lambasting the extremely unpopular, sleep-her-way-to-the-top, failed politician.
  82. 2021 Saturday N: Political News IV– Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, is going to speak at the state’s GOP convention.  In other political news, famed legal scholar and professor, Dr. Alan Dershowitz says that ‘Rudy Giuliani- America’s mayor- was denied due process and the loss of his law license in New York state simply won’t be upheld in the courts.’  Awesome.   In other news, Rep. Jim Banks, R-IN 3rd congressional district, says that MOST Americans disagree with Criminal Race Theory- uh, ‘Critical Race Theory.’  Amen to this, too.  Elsewhere, Rep. Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, brought his FREEDOM TOUR to Charlotte, North Carolina, today.  You can smell freedom in the air, folks.  Meanwhile- and this interesting so pay note- Democrats are backing off DEFUND THE POLICE going into 2022 as it’s a nonstarter for most Americans. 
  83. 2021 Saturday O: Political News V– Democrats continue their war on sensible, common-sense Trump-era regulations by trying to topple as many of them as they can.  Meanwhile, Rep. Byron Donalds, R-FL 19th congressional district, continues pushing members of the ultra-left-wing, anti-black conservative group.  These flipping hacks and losers won’t allow anyone who does not espouse their bigoted, racist insanity into their group.  (Note- Rep. Donalds- how about forming the CONSERVATIVE BLACK CAUCUS?)  Elsewhere, George Floyd’s brother committed a cardinal sin to the leftists and said that “ALL LIVES MATTER.”  Finally, Missouri’s state senate approves a bill that ends a showdown on abortion in the state.
  84. 2021 Saturday P: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– The suspected shooter in a horrible crime that occurred in the Bronx several days back in which, a lone gunman fired multiple shots while dancing around the intended victim.  The reason for the dancing was because the victim’s young siblings were trying to shield his body from the gangbanging thug that appeared to fire off an entire magazine of rounds.  Where is drooling Joe Biden on this intolerable crime?  (Note- Joe’s down in the basement playing pocket pool).  Elsewhere, in the always-peaceful metropolis of Portland, Oregon, (yeah, right) riots break out follow an officer-involved shooting.
  85. 2021 Saturday Q: Weather News I– The U.S. is bracing for a record heat wave and Seattle, Washington, reports its hottest day on record- ever.  Oh, the Green New Deal losers are going to be screeching like the banshees they are.  (Note- folks, it’s summertime.  If we had plentiful energy and the Democrats didn’t squander our water resources, everything would be fine).   Meanwhile, thanks to the ongoing drought in the Golden State- one easily fixed by the Democrats- the Golden State is having a banner year with rattlesnakes pouring out of their cubbyholes, crevices, and woodpiles.
  86. 2021 Saturday R: Natural Disasters– A 2.6-magnitude earthquake hit Woodlawn, Maryland, early this morning.  No reports of injuries or property damage.  Maryland seems an odd place for earthquakes. 
  87. 2021 Saturday S: Human-Caused Disasters– Following the collapse of one-half of a 12-story condominium in Surfside, Florida, early Thursday morning, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis has given Surfside Mayor Charles Burkett a brief time to determine whether residents in the remaining upright portion of the building should evacuate.  New reports suggest that the building back in 2018 saw an engineering report suggesting structural damage that needed to be fixed.  The building is about 40 years old and has been reportedly sinking 2-3 centimeters per year.  Not good.  (Note- if we lived in the building and didn’t disappear in the collapse, we would vacate the place as of yesterday).
  88. : Religion News– The U.S. Catholic bishops show their spinelessness (and the fact that they lean way far left) as they could not arrive at a policy of denying Holy Communion to Pro-Death politicians such as dribbling Joe Biden and others of his ilk.  (Note- they are afraid of losing their tax-exempt status which in our view is even worse than being craven leftists).
  89. 2021 Saturday U: NASA, Space, and UFO News– The Pentagon report on UFOs says that ‘yes, indeed they are real’ and that ‘we know little to nothing about them.’  Not very comforting but this is the most they have ever honestly said on the subject so we should be grateful, we guess.
  90. 2021 Saturday V: Moron News I– At the infamous Philly naked bike ride, participants are required to wear…MASKS.  Go figure.
  91. 2021 Saturday W: Fake News I– We learned today that FALSE FLAG OPERATIONS continue.  Two newly erected statues of George Floyd, one in New York and one in New Jersey, were spray-painted and tagged with EVIL WHITE SUPREMACIST SAYINGS.  Yeah, right, what a load of crap.  This crap will go on and imbeciles in the Biden regime and Democratic Party will continue braying like the sheeple they are of the dangers of ‘white supremacism,’ blah, blah, blah.  Anyhow, the NYC Hate Crimes Division is investigating these scurrilous scalawags.  Friends, this is a classic case of FAKE NEWS, a ginned-up bunch of crap.  Let’s get this straight- the statues are white and someone threw black paint on them.  The group that supposedly did this- Patriot Front- sounds like crap created by the liberals.  Pay NO attention but hey- other statues are defaced and torn down so why not ones dedicated to a low-level, POS, loser like Mr. Floyd?  It is what it is.
  92. 2021 Saturday X: California State News– Isn’t it amazing how this always works out?  Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom suddenly produces $5.2 billion to pay back rents for everyone requiring help with their rents due to the Chi-Com virus.  The POS loser is facing a recall election in a few months and now like a good magician, he’s able to pull some rabbits out of his hat.  (Note- he is still going to be voted out of office as everyone hates them).
  93. 2021 Saturday Y: Louisiana State News– Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards has vetoed Senate Bill 118 that would permit concealed carry of firearms sans any type of permit.  Keep working at it, Louisianans.
  94. 2021 Saturday Z: Sports News I– After a devastating crash at the Tour d’ France, race organizers are urging spectators to use precautions.
  95. 2021 Saturday AA: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3572 with a $59 million jackpot on the line: 11, 19, 24, 32, 44, and Mega 04.  Out of 141,401 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $24,716.  The winning tickets were sold in (1) Chevron in Eureka, CA 95501 and (2) 7-Eleven in El Cajon, CA 92021.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #858 with an $88 million pot on the line: 08, 31, 39, 43, 60, and Powerball 17.  Out of 48,877 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $26,989.
  96. 2022 Sunday: Stick around…

  49. 2007 Monday: Republican senator from the state of Wyoming- John Barrasso- entered the U.S. Senate on this date.   Meanwhile, the U.S. Supreme Court issues a spate of 5-4 decisions.  The first places limits on freedom of expression by students, the next one permits the airing of issue-oriented ads ahead of elections, and the final one prohibits ordinary American citizens from demanding answers over faith-based initiatives.  In essence, the Roberts court is allowing the stripping away of Americans’ freedoms.
  50. 2008 Wednesday: The United States Supreme Court finally does the right thing and rules in the case of Exxon Shipping Co. v. Baker that the damages slapped on Exxon-Mobil over the Exxon Valdez case were exorbitant.  It slashed the settlement from the more than $2.7 billion to a much more reasonable $507 million.  Of course, the Green Nazis go berserk.  In another case, Kennedy v.

  57. 2015 Thursday: For the second time in three years, the U.S. Supreme Court upholds Obamacare in a 6-3 decision, outraging most Americans but causing the Obama Administration to dance the jig.  This is not right and yet, no one—including the Republican Party—will fight against it.  What do the Obamaists have on Chief Justice John Roberts? 
  58. 2016 Saturday: After the new government of Taiwan refuses to accept the One-China Policy and bow down to the commies in Beijing, the Chi-Coms sever communications with the brave island.  They must bow down and kiss the ground the Chinese Communist Party tells them to kiss.  F**k them.  IF Donald Trump wins in November, he will defend Taiwan.  If the Democrats win, it’s ‘adios amigos.’
  59. 2017 Sunday: In Ahmedpur East, Pakistan, a tanker truck carrying oil bursts into violent flames following an explosion, claiming at least 200 lives, and injuring countless others as they sought to scavenge oil on the ground.   Elsewhere, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad arrives in the city of Hama in his first visit to the community since the start of all the anti-government foolishness that has plagued the country since the beginning of the Arab Spring.  He came to attend the Eid al-Fitr holiday prayer services.

  62. 2020 Thursday: Inexorably, the Xi Jinping Bat Flu continues marching around the world.  In the United States, Democrats gleefully recite all the polls showing “Pro-China Joe” Biden with an insurmountable 14-point lead, in many battleground states, as well as across the nation.  It’s all over, folks, according to the leftists, “NO point going to the polls.”  My, my, my, I guess we shall see.  Here are the global stats for the COVID Crisis (thank you, communist China): 9,494,571 confirmed cases, 484,155 confirmed deaths, and 4,782,910 confirmed recoveries.

Gavin Newsom colluding with his Beijing bosses?  Next, in the Aloha State, here are the stats: 835 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 686 confirmed recoveries.  In the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 30,318 confirmed cases, 1,300 confirmed deaths, but like other BLUE STATES, no mention of confirmed recoveries.  For interest’s sake, here are the stats for the Empire State where dimwit Governor Andrew “The Moron” Cuomo, a man ‘who’s single and ready to mingle’ according to his mentally challenged younger brother, CNN anchor and victim of Roid Rage, Chris, here are the stats: 390,415 confirmed cases, 24,800 confirmed deaths, and golly gee whiz, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us not forget, too, that Gov. Cuomo is responsible for most of the deaths in his state by sending coronavirus infected patients into rest homes!

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 301,029 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 158,620 deaths

  70. 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 $4.258 per gallon, $2.940 in Florida, $3.997 in Hawaii, and $3.693 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- New Mexico: $3.018.  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- Taiwan: $3.945 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,448,291,778,032 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Bermuda, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Netherlands with $70 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position).[xviii]
  71. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Border arrests top one-million during Fiscal Year 2021.  Wow.  Next, by our count, today is Day #94 that ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been in charge and voila, like a maggot appearing on a dog turd, she showed up in the El Paso sector and blamed the problems along the border on- you guessed it- President Donald J. Trump.  Anyhow, once in El Paso, perhaps the slowest crossing point for the illegal alien tidal wave, she chose to blast the GOP instead of offering competent fixes for the border crisis.  Dimwit.  Speaking of “Kooky Kamala,” former Acting CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan says that the ‘vice president’ won’t accomplish a thing at the border.
  72. 2021 Friday G: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Canadian leader Justin Trudeau says that Pope Francis should apologize on Canadian soil for what happened in Catholic-run First Peoples’ schools where numerous unmarked graves have turned up.  Mr. Trudeau, those Catholic nuns running the schools most likely were Canadian Catholic nuns so you should stop while you are ahead, doofus.   If you wish to see true persecution and discrimination against the indigenous peoples of North America, look no further than Canada and Mexico before you start sniveling about the United States’ treatment of Native Americans.
  73. 2021 Friday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The filthy city by the bay- San Francisco- is going to require ALL city employees- 35 thousand of them to be precise- to get the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine.  Whether they like it or not!  (Seems like we have heard this before from Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom when he was mayor of Frisco and was marrying gays at city hall.  It was against the law back then and he blew it off.  He told his critics that ‘whether you like it or not, it’s gonna happen so get with the program bigots.”  What a lovely fellow.  Going to be amazing watching him go down in the recall election.
  74. 2021 Friday I: Health and Medical Alerts– What’s up with Joe Biden?  Not only does he say black people are too ignorant to get by in life without help from Uncle Joe, now, Hispanics are, too, because- and this is a good one- according to the drooler-in-chief, “they won’t get the vaccine because they fear being deported immediately afterward.”  WTF, Joe, you aren’t deporting anyone now so who is fearful of getting the vaccine and then getting placed aboard the southbound Border Patrol bus and sent back whence the f**k they came?  (Note- what the hell is up with this bigoted POS claiming to be president, flinging out all sorts of racist comments sans any kind of pushback?  Where are all these RACE WARRIORS fighting against bigots, racists, and white supremacists?)
  75. 2021 Friday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– The state senate in Pennsylvania has approved a bill requiring a constitutional amendment with which to codify VOTER ID in the state’s founding documents.  Excellent.  In Georgia, both Governor Brian Kemp and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger are pushing back against the unlawful overreach of the Department of Justice threatening to trash their new voting laws.  President Donald J. Trump says that citizens of the Peach State should sue their state government over the crooked, ‘rigged election.’  Amen.  What amazes us is the fact that the Georgia voting rights law is less strident than say the ones in New York or in Colorado and yet, that little trollop, Kristin Clarke, the little racist heading the civil rights division at the Justice Department could care less.  And you ask why WE believe the 2020 Election was stolen?  NO one in their right mind would vote for this crap, no one.
  76. 2021 Friday K: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I–  Former Minneapolis Police Officer received a sentence from Judge Peter Cahill today of 270 months in prison.  The prosecution was seeking 30 years while the defense was seeking probation.  The judge issued his verdict and in a 20-plus page addendum added his reasoning in writing so that everyone would be able to see and understand his thought processes on the verdict.  (Note- almost immediately, people outside the courthouse were wailing and moaning.  STFU already, George Floyd’s family is now fabulously wealthy so they most likely are pleased that erstwhile son George took one for the team).  Elsewhere, the union head of prison employees says that the Bureau of Prisons is facing tough decisions without proper funding in the upcoming budget.
  77. 2021 Friday L: Popular Culture News– A new poll says that 3 out of 4 respondents believe it’s unfair for women to be forced to compete with mentally deranged young boys and men claiming to be girls.  Only one person out of four believes that girls should be forced to compete with males.  Look, we have offered some fixes for this problem.  First, IF boys want to be girls, then they should undergo full transition from male to female meaning everything gets snipped off and you have undergone at least a year to get the testosterone out of your system.  Second, IF girls must be forced to compete with un-snipped boys and young men, girls should be allowed to dope as this will even the playing field.  Third and final alternative, just create a third category of sports: TRANNY SPORTS.  We believe everyone would watch TRANNY SPORTS because who doesn’t love a good ‘freak show?’
  78. 2021 Friday M: California State News– California’s government is asking ALL Californians NOT to charge their electric vehicles during Peak Hours.  Hmmm, what can go wrong with this debacle?  Well, if you lived in a town like Paradise, California, which burned down more than 20,000 acres back in 2018.  People were trapped in the town what with only one or two roads out of the area which were both ablaze.  The death toll was frightening but imagine how much worse it could have been had people been reliant upon EVs.  We will drive gas-guzzling cars to the day we die because we will never bow down to the Green Meanies.
  79. 2021 Friday N: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1671 has a $50 million jackpot on the line.  Here are the numbers: 17, 20, 42, 45, 65, and Mega 12.  Out of 49,933 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $12,402.
  80. 2022 Saturday: Today marks Day #521 of the illegal Joe Biden regime.  We tick off the minutes every day until we can see the return of the legitimate President Donald J. Trump to his rightful position in the White House.  This is WHY the fake news media, the criminals in the Democratic-Socialist Party (and among the RINO wing of the GOP), and the street thugs in Antifa and Black Lives Matter continue pursuing the freedom fighters of the nation by vilifying and ridiculing them.  Ridicule all you want.  The time is coming and it’s coming soon.  Stick around and discover the truth along with all of us.  You will be glad you did (including the traitorous scum trying to topple the country and sell it out to the Chi-Coms).

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Every now and then, a movie soundtrack or cut from a movie soundtrack breathes NEW LIFE into an older band.  The song, “Kokomo” from the Tom Cruise movie, “Cocktail,” was just such a track and suddenly, the Beach Boys had their first Number One hit since “Good Vibrations” several decades earlier.  The band went into the studio and came out with a new album, “Still Cruisin’” that came out on August 28, 1989.  The album featured the same lineup as the previous album but this record was far better.  We hope you will investigate it to your exacting standards but we suspect that you will enjoy this album as much as we do.  Check it out ASAP.  You will be glad you did.

  75. 2020 Wednesday A: Here are the Kung Flu stats for the world today: 9,237,691 confirmed cases, 476,911 confirmed deaths, and 4,613,425 confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the United States, here are today’s stats for the Chinese Virus Crisis: 2,425,361 confirmed cases, 123,726 confirmed deaths, and 746,563 confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day possesses chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, the NOT-so-Golden State first: 190,222 confirmed cases, 5,632 confirmed deaths, and as usual, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the Aloha State, here are today’s stats: 819 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 673 confirmed recoveries.  Lastly, in the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 29,826 confirmed cases, 1,293 confirmed deaths, but like California, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  For the fun of it, let’s look at the numbers for Michigan: 68,555 confirmed cases, 6,114 confirmed deaths, but sadly, Napoleonic Governor Gretchen Whitmer WON’T release the number of confirmed recoveries.

Trump announces he will sign an executive order that will forbid the desecration of federal monuments or memorials with the possibility of 10 years in federal prison.  We have seen uncontrolled mobs, filled with communists, and funded by the Chinese Communist Party (or so we believe) that the minute a horrible crime like the slaying of George Floyd occurs, take to the streets across the nation destroying everything in their path as though they were reincarnations of Mao Zedong’s Red Guards.  Sign it, Mr. President, sign it, and let’s see this scum go to PRISON for good.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 300,702 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.

  82. 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 $4.249 per gallon, $2.939 in Florida, $3.993 in Hawaii, and $3.670 in Washington state.[xx]    Let’s look at one other location- New Jersey: $3.082.  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- Bahamas: $3.941 per U.S. Gallon.[xxi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,444,594,224,863 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS. [xxii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Germany, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Bermuda with $73 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position).[xxiii]
  83. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day #93 for Willie Brown’s mattress, the laughing jackal, aka the ‘border czar’ aka “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in this job and yet to have visited the southern border.  Reportedly, she is going to go tomorrow so as to beat President Donald J. Trump who is visiting the border with Texas state and GOP officials this upcoming Wednesday, June 30.   Next, here are today’s stats as presented by One America News: (1) Cost this day for caring for the illegal aliens in the country: $530,048,320.  (2) Total Cost this year of caring for infestation: $191,215,026,176.  Next, (3) numbers of illegals who have crossed this year: 1.959,861.  Finally, (4) Total estimated number of illegal aliens lurking in the country: 35,959,800.  (Note- our blog has been around since 2009 and back then, we estimated the number of illegal aliens in the country at 35-50 million.  Now, a dozen years later, we believe the number of illegals infesting the country is around 75 is around 75-100 million.  Time to begin scooping up this flotsam and jetsam of humanity and loading them aboard trains, planes, airliners, buses, and even freighters and returning them to Tierra del Fuego.  Let them march up from the tip of South America back to the border where hopefully, we will have lain in minefields, antipersonnel ditches and obstacles, and other impediments to the illegal alien invasion.  It must stop now).
  84. 2021 Thursday G: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– The BBC is reporting that the conditions in which illegal alien brats are languishing is absolutely horrific and is an insult to all nations claiming to respect ‘human rights.’  Meanwhile, we continue hearing that the illegal alien brats able to escape these gulags are being shuttled across the country and handed over to foster parents who are getting paid handsomely to care for these noncitizen children.  Cheaper to send them home.  NOW.  Rep. Jason Smith, R-MO 8th congressional district, told Chris Salcedo of Newsmax TV that the federal government is ignoring all laws connected with illegals by giving them housing vouchers, free travel, food, transportation, and even stimulus checks which is insane, costing the American taxpayers, and simply must stop.  (Note- and ‘hairy-legs Joe’ wonders why the American people continue buying more firearms, ammo, and anything else they can with which to defend themselves from both illegal aliens and out-of-control, oppressive federal government).
  85. : Foreign News / Overseas News I– Israel opposes the reentry of the United States into the Iran nuclear deal, aka the JCPOA.  Next, over allegations of the rampant use of SLAVE LABOR in Chi-Com concentration camps, the United States is banning imports of materials used in solar panels from that hellhole of a nation.  Good.  Let’s make everything we can here in the United States- like we used to do.   Meanwhile, the FREEDOM FIGHTERS of the TRUE CHINA- Taiwan- are condemning the shuttering of the Apple Daily, a true voice for the pro-democracy, pro-freedom movement in Hong Kong.  The Chi-Coms have arrested many upper echelon employees and have closed the paper down as of today.  Thank you, Taiwan, for being so bold in calling out this evil travesty.  “Pro-China Joe” Biden most certainly won’t.  Elsewhere, there is fear that with Benjamin Netanyahu no longer the prime minister of Israel that all the gains made by the Abraham Accords could go out the window.  That would be sad.   Finally, German Fuhrer Angela Merkel says that Europe is on ‘thin ice’ due to the rise of the Delta variant of the Chi-Com Bat Flu Virus running amok there.  Uh, okay.
  86. 2021 Thursday IPolitical News I– Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, to Newsmax TV: “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka the ‘border czar,’ is visiting the wrong part of the border tomorrow.   Next, former governor and UN ambassador Nikki Haley is scheduled to give the keynote address at Iowa’s Annual Lincoln Day GOP dinner fueling speculation that she may run for the White House in 2024.  (Note- don’t bother, Nikki, we place you in the same category as other losers such as John McCain, Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, John Boehner, and other detestable RINOs.  Still, it’s your humiliation).
  87. 2021 Thursday J:  Political News II– As the witch hunt grinds on and on, the New York State Bar Association has suspended the law license of “America’s Mayor” Rudy Giuliani, also the attorney of President Donald J. Trump.  These people should be ashamed.  New York could care less about all the riots that happened last summer, the countless businesses burned, the people injured and even killed; no, all they care about is anyone on the Trump team.  F**k them.  Speaking of Rudy, he said that outgoing NYC Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio, CPUSA, legacy is rising crime and nothing else.
  88. 2021 Thursday K: Political News III– Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-TX 1st congressional district, says that tomorrow’s visit by “Kooky Kamala” Harris to the southern border is going to use illegal alien kids as photo props.  Sad.   Meanwhile, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says ‘it’s time to fire Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci over his incompetence.’  Next, the Biden regime and a bipartisan group of senators (meaning Democratic-Socialists and obsequious RINOs) have arrived at a deal on infrastructure.  Elsewhere, the Democrat-controlled Congress has repealed Trump-era safeguards imposed on payday lenders.
  89. 2021 Thursday L: Joe Biden Regime News I– FBI Director Chris Wray is defending his request for $10 billion for the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  The FBI must monitor them thar white supremacists, you know.  Ain’t them white supremacists Democrats?  You got that right, too.   Next, following Catholic bishops determining that drooling Joe Biden is not eligible for receiving Holy Communion, Democrats are calling for reviews of tax-exempt statuses for numerous Christian houses of worship.  (Note- the Dems will NEVER go after Muslims, folks, too scary and too dangerous for them to do so).  In other Biden regime news, he is going to relocate Afghans who have aided the Americans and allied troops in Afghanistan.  Good.  In other Biden regime news, the feds say that ‘employment is significantly down thanks to business owners not hiring.’  (Note- they can’t pay the wages it would take to entice recalcitrant employees to return to work).
  90. 2021 Thursday M: California State News– Things continue going bad to worse for Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom in that the 30 days period with which to permit timid voters who signed the recall petitions to back out, out of the nearly 2 million valid signatures, only 43 people retracted their names.  Forty-three people, folks, which tells us just how much the people of this state detest the little prick.  Add to that the fact that HE LIED to the citizens of the Golden State by claiming ‘his administration performed fire maintenance on more than 90,000 acres within the state when in actuality, he did less than 12,000.  (Note- watch for the Delta variant of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu to be out of control around Election Day so the wimpy governor can try to frighten voters into not going to the polls to oust him.  It won’t work).  Speaking of the Golden State, Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca is urging for the declaration of a state of emergency over the homelessness problem that sees homeless people camped out on public beaches, in the streets, back alleyways, in abandoned buildings, vacant lots, parking garages, the city is going to hell and needs help.  Declare the emergency, “Nazi Newsom!”
  91. 2021 Thursday N: U.S. Military News– Reportedly, in two weeks, the U.S. will have just 650 troops stationed in Afghanistan.  Meanwhile, the pathetic political hack who serves as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Milley, tries to normalize the bogus Critical Race Theory (which we now view as CRIMINAL RACE THEORY), he brags about reading ‘Marx, Mao, Lenin,’ and other left-wing murderers and hacks.  Friends, General Mark Milley is akin to Nazi Generals Alfred Jodl and Wilhelm Keitel, both of whom went to the gallows in the aftermath of World War II.   This is what happens to brown-nosing political hacks and it’s time these losers were the ones culled from the herd, not brave patriots.  We wish he were a patriot like General George S. Patton or Field Marshal Douglas MacArthur but he’s not- he’s a hack.
  92. 2022 Friday: Where we were last year: The Joe Biden regime continues to stumble along, looking for white supremacists wherever they can find them even though none exist and IF they did exist, they would be among the Democrats as that is who fleshed out the ranks of the Ku Klux Klan.  Still, all components of the Executive and Legislative branches continue beating the drums seeking them out wherever they can find them so they can punish them.  How soon before drooling Joe Biden requests the Chi-Coms send him some troops so he can maintain order in the streets?

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Poor Brian Wilson, beset by mental troubles, either caused by familial or drug-induced problems was under the control of one of the EVILEST people in the annals of modern music- Dr. Eugene Landy who was hired originally by the other Beach Boys to keep poor Brian on the straight and narrow.  Somehow, this evil scumbag got control of Wilson in ways similar to what happened to Britney Spears- at a later date- only this despicable disgrace to the mental health community got his name and others among his employees as cowriters on Brian Wilson’s tunes so they could suck every cent possible out of one of America’s greatest composers.  Brian recorded a solo album- his first- the self-titled “Brian Wilson,” an album that came out on July 12, 1988.  Brian brought in a competent lot of musicians to help him craft this album and given the circumstances- with Landy or one of his minions spying on Wilson at all hours of the day and night- is worth checking out.  In later years, Landy and his troll-like helpers have had their names stripped from the album which is good because all of them deserve to be doing long prison terms in maximum-security facilities.  Seek it out, give it a listen, and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

170. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, JUNE 19, 2022

2020 Friday: Desperate Democrats in Tulsa, Oklahoma, rush to their state’s supreme court to demand it STOP the planned Trump rally in that city tomorrow night. They cite concerns over the ‘possible spread’ of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu while saying NOTHING about the rioters and protesters who are going to attempt to disrupt the president’s rally. The court told them to go pound sand. Interesting side note: one of the lawyers seeking the injunction just so happened to be of Stormy Daniels’ legal team which included POS convicted felon, Michael Avenatti.

Human Rights Commission because all of the worst human rights abusers in the world sit on this once respectable body.  Should have done it sooner!  Meanwhile, the Canadian Senate by a vote of 52-29 passes the ‘Cannabis Act of 2018,’ one that will permit its citizens to light up, get stoned, and zone out.  That’s always beneficial for a nation…
  59. 2019 Wednesday: The United Nations announces that 70-percent of the world’s population are displaced, refugees, or ‘asylum seekers,’ the highest number in seven decades, well, since the end of World War II.  Now, here’s the question: why isn’t the world body doing what it is supposed to be doing and improving the lives of people living in S-hole nations by stopping wars, purges, communist takeovers, and the like?  Crickets…Elsewhere, the Japanese navy finds itself busy around the clock pushing back North Korean fishing boats trying to poach in its territorial waters. 
  60. 2020 Friday: Desperate Democrats in Tulsa, Oklahoma, rush to their state’s supreme court to demand it STOP the planned Trump rally in that city tomorrow night.  They cite concerns over the ‘possible spread’ of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu while saying NOTHING about the rioters and protesters who are going to attempt to disrupt the president’s rally.  The court told them to go pound sand.  Interesting side note: one of the lawyers seeking the injunction just so happened to be of Stormy Daniels’ legal team which included POS convicted felon, Michael Avenatti.  Meanwhile, Texas Senator John Cornyn, R-TX, presents a bill to make Juneteenth a federal paid holiday.
  61. 2020 Friday A: Speaking of dictator Xi’s bat flu, here are the stats for today: 8,915,543 confirmed cases, 454,582 confirmed deaths, and 4,184,445 confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 2,262,029 confirmed cases, 120,831 confirmed deaths, and 703,209 confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the three states where the world-famous 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: 165,416 confirmed cases, 5,360 confirmed deaths, but thanks to Gov.

  64. 2021 Saturday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 299,177 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.

  70. 2021 Saturday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, this is Day #88 for ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the southern border and to have yet shown up for one day’s work on the job.  Meanwhile Texas prison authorities are moving inmates from facilities near the border with Mexico so they can begin stuffing them full of criminal illegal aliens.  Good.  Bring in former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio and have him construct tent jails in the desert with which to house the more than 1 million illegals who have flooded into the country since January 1.  Feed them peanut butter sandwiches on stale bread and give them pink underwear to wear as he did during his time as sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona, January 01, 1993-to-January 01, 2017.  He also brought chain gangs back and imagine- if we have to house all these illegal aliens, they had better earn their keep or continue languishing in intense desert conditions in tent cities.
  71. 2021 Saturday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– The demands that slobbering Joe Biden replace his so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris continue increasing as Republican and even some border state Democrats are demanding someone with the ability to do the job take over from “Willie Brown’s well-used mattress.”   A new report says that more than 186,000 illegals crossed the border in May.  Here are the stats as presented by One America News for today: (1) Cost this Day Alone for caring for all these illegal aliens: $1,084,754,176.  (2) Cost this YEAR for caring for all these illegal aliens: $186,290,274,304.  (3) Total illegals who have crossed in 2021: 1,909,326.  (4) Total number of illegal aliens estimated to be in the country: 35,909,324.  One America News compiles these stats from the following sources: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT.  (Note- since the inception of the blog back in 2009, we have said there were between 35-50 million illegals in the country back then; we now believe the number is closer to 75-100 million and we could find ourselves in a national emergency if all these people were suddenly to go to war against us).  Regarding the tidal wave of illegal aliens, Rep. Greg Steube, R-FL 17th congressional district, says that the chain of mass migration into the United States MUST be broken.
  72. 2021 Saturday I: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe III– As the Biden-caused border calamity continues, cartel gunmen in the Mexican border town of Reynosa killed at least 18 people in multiple shootings and injured countless others.  Just another day in the life of the fraudulent Biden-Harris regime.
  73. 2021 Saturday J: Foreign News / Overseas News– Hardcore jihadist nut Ibrahim Raisi ‘wins’ the Iranian presidential election.  He will replace outgoing President Hassan Rouhani.  Next, Joe Biden is sending 2.5 million doses of Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines to the FREE peoples of Taiwan.  Of course, the Chi-Coms are angry.  You know our motto: “F**k ‘em!”  Meanwhile, due to NO support from the European Union, Greece says they are going to crackdown on all the border invaders trying to flood Greek territory from Turkey.  Any nation that has had the boot of Islam atop its neck does not want MORE indigent Muslims flooding their country.  Long live Greece!  Next, growing crowds in Hong Kong are demanding the release of ALL political prisoners held by the Chi-Coms.  Moving on, the White House says comments made by Kim Jong Un recently are ‘interesting signals.’  He’s probably going to nuke Hawaii or something.
  74. 2021 Saturday K: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information– National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan continues encouraging all nations afflicted by the Beijing Bat Bug continue going after the Chi-Coms to own up to their crimes.  We add our voices to theirs and encourage the nations of the planet to join in a global class-action lawsuit and take these communist bastards to the World Court.  Reparations[xv] are in store.   Meanwhile, scientists are saying that had the use of hydroxychloroquine NOT become politicized by the frigging Democrats, nearly half-a-million Americans would not have died.  Meanwhile, a scientist at the World Health Organization says that ‘the jury is still out on Wuhan Flu booster shots.’
  75. 2021 Saturday L: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– Outgoing Senator Rob Portman, R-OH, says that the bill offered by fellow Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, one in which, the West Virginian offers a compromise to the lunacy the Democrats are pushing are ‘missing the mark.’

  77. 2021 Saturday N: Political News I– GOP lawmakers continue focusing on ways with which to ban Marxist-Leninist Critical Race Theory- CRT- in public schools.  Next, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, came to the defense of Vice President Mike Pence after he was heckled by numerous conservative reporters at a recent conference.  ‘Mike’s NO traitor,’ quipped the RINO congressman.  Well, millions believe otherwise.[xvi]  Amazing how the engineered FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021, helped the Chi-Coms, the Democratic-Socialists, and the RINOs drive the dagger into the back of President Donald J. Trump.  (Note- people of the 23rd District in California would love to see someone else in McCarthy’s spot).
  78. 2021 Saturday O: Political News II– A new report says that Millennials are gravitating toward the Republican Party.  Can’t blame them.  Under President Donald J. Trump, they were able to get married, have kids, buy new homes and cars.  Under Joe Biden, things are even worse than they were under Barack Hussein Obama which was flipping awful.  Next, a straw poll puts “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis of Florida at the top of the list of 2024 presidential contenders should President Donald J. Trump choose not to run and win a third time.
  79. 2021 Saturday P: Political News III– Governor Jared Polis, D-CO, signed three separate gun measures into law today.  The first, SB21-256 allows cities in the Rocky Mountain State to set their own gun laws.  It now makes gun laws a matter of state and local concern.   The second bill forbids gun dealers to transfer firearms to people who have had convictions on specified crimes as well as to forbid the sale of guns to people incapable of passing FBI gun background checks.  The third and final measure- according to Yahoo News- mandates “the Office of Gun Violence Prevention within the Department of Health and Environment to conduct public awareness campaigns that “educate the general public about state and federal laws and existing resources relating to gun violence prevention.”
  80. 2021 Saturday Q: Political News IV– Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, says that ‘Juneteenth is a fitting addition to the list of federal holidays.’  We now have TWO independence days as we continue down the path of Balkanization which means how soon before we have other independence days for each stripe of the homosexual rainbow flag as well as for Hispanics, Latinos, and whatever else is out there crying for their own independence days.  WTF is going the f**k on?  In other political news, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says that ‘Joe Biden’s European trip was ALL carrot and NO stick.’  Amen.  Speaking of the usurper-in-chief, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, says it’s time for Joe Biden to decide on his infrastructure bill, what we call the ‘shit or get off the pot moment’ to make an agreement with the GOP or watch it die.
  81. 2021 Saturday R: U.S. Supreme Court News– Famed legal scholar, constitutional law professor, and trial attorney Dr. Alan Dershowitz told Newsmax that the United States Supreme Court is NOT in a ‘conservative revolt mode’ but is rendering consensus decisions.

Bill.  Poor bastard is rolling around in his grave.  Next, ‘the president’ when asked by reporters to articulate what would happen in Afghanistan following the U.S. troop withdrawal, he was unable to provide a coherent answer.  Damned earpiece!  (Note- we bet Vladimir Putin is hacking into his earpiece.  Mayhap Joe left that one off the 16 infrastructures not to hack in the United States?  LOL.  It ain’t no laughing matter).
  84. 2021 Saturday U: Joe Biden Regime News II– Former top government watchdog Walter Schaub blasts Joe Biden’s regime for the nepotism rampant there.  He also blasted the Trump administration for having family members in key places.  However, the difference between the president and the regime is that Trump’s family members received no paychecks or benefits while everyone in the phony president’s family does.  Even worse is that when Joe Biden occasionally showed up on Zoom calls during his campaign, he swore that NONE of his family members would be given jobs.  NONE.
  85. 2021 Saturday V: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– After violence continues to intensify in BLUE cities across the country, Democratic-Socialist mayors and governors are rushing to refund police departments.  Go figure.  Speaking of this violence, former Sheriff David A. Clarke, D-WI Milwaukee County 2007-2017, says, ‘get ready for a violent summer.’  Elsewhere, in Russia, an American student- and former U.S. Marine- 34-year-old Catherine Serou was found dead.  She accepted a ride from a stranger this past Tuesday, texted her mother her fears of being abducted, then turned up dead.  Russian police quickly arrested a suspect.  We await further developments.  (Note- why the f**k would anyone- especially former U.S. military members be studying in frigging Russia?  It makes as much sense as visiting the land of the Chi-Coms.  No, no, and no!).  Meanwhile, following the deliberate collision with a group of sports cyclists that severely wounded seven of them, cops in the city of Show Low, Arizona, shoot the driver dead.  The driver- a WHITE guy- ran from the scene, resisted arrest, and got himself shot but not enough to kill his worthless ass.  (Note- Black Lives Matter will point to this and say, “See.  White guy, the cops didn’t shoot his ass dead!”)
  86. 2021 Saturday W: National Security News– Esteemed scholar of all things Chi-Com Gordon Chang says that the Chi-Com defector in the hands of the Defense Intelligence Agency could bring about the toppling of the Chinese Communist Party.

  89. 2021 Saturday Z: NASA, Space, and UFO News– A new book suggests that the crew of the space shuttle Challenger may have survived the 1986 explosion.  That’s not good.

Trump is supporting Alaska state official Kelly Tshibaka in her bid to topple corrupt machine hack Senator Lisa Murkowski.  President Trump says he is even going to go to the 49th state and campaign on her behalf.  Now, we expect the crowds to see Trump in the Land of the Midnight Sun the likes of which, we have never before seen.  Next, President Donald J. Trump endorsed former Rep. Vito Fossella, R-NY 13th congressional district 1997 to 2009, to become the Staten Island borough president.  The 45th president says that Fossella won’t let the people down.

  65. 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 $4.228 per gallon, $2.953 in Florida, $3.978 in Hawaii, and $3.630 in Washington state.[xxiii]    Let’s look at one other location- Mississippi: $2.724.  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- El Salvador: $3.797 per U.S. Gallon.[xxiv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,421,896,732,639 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxv]  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 Saudi Arabia, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is South Korea with $131 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position).[xxvi]
  66. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says of Joe Biden and ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris (by the way, this is Day #87 she has held this job, folks, and has yet to do one day’s work in this extremely important job), that ‘neither of them have any intention of visiting or fixing the border.’  We are sending checks to the Texas-Arizona effort to continue building the wall.  (Note- we would send even more money if they were going to lay in minefields, seed the area along the Rio Grande with loads of rattlesnakes, and other anti-personnel obstacles and barriers.  Something must happen here).
  67. 2021 Friday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– The Palestinians were set to receive 1 million doses of the Chi-Vi vaccine from Israel and then refused them by claiming they were going to expire soon.  F**k them.  Meanwhile, as Canada continues to follow the path forward blazed by Mao Zedong in the 1940s and 1950s, U.S. businesses are concerned over the failure of the Canucks to reopen their border so normal business and tourism can recommence.  (Note- we think Ottawa is going down a dark path and are using the Xi Jinping Bat Flu as their excuse for cutting off communications between our two countries.  None of us want to visit that Third World country again, especially after they interfered in the 2020 Presidential Election- that means YOU, Justin Trudeau, which means YOU, Dominion Voting Systems, which means you, YOU Marx-loving losers).
  68. 2021 Friday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Unvaccinated West Point cadets are under a great deal of pressure to get the COVID-19 vaccine or face solitary confinement.  Look, most of the U.S. military is not taking the vaccine so why should the military cadets?  Many of us remember the innumerable problems that surrounded U.S. military personnel given anthrax and other oddball vaccinations prior to George W. Bush’s illegal war in Iraq.  We stand with the cadets.   Next- and this is a good one- apparently, the AstraZeneca Chi-Com vaccine is NOT GOOD ENOUGH to get tickets to see Bruce “The Boring” Springsteen on Broadway.  Alas, what is GOOD ENOUGH- the Johnson & Johnson soul-stealing vaccine?  We didn’t want to see “The Loser” anyway.
  69. 2021 Friday I: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– Forever-pissed Stacey Abrams, election-stealing expert says she is backing Senator Joe Manchin’s voting compromise that will make Election Day a national holiday as well as to cement 15 days of early voting.  If an angry cow such as Ms. Abrams is supporting it, then it can’t be good.  (Note- we always hope that Senator Machin will ‘do the right thing’ but it’s clear that he is as malleable as is silly putty under the right pressure.
  70. 2021 Friday J: Joe Biden News– Rep. Andrew Garbarino, R-NY 1st congressional district, says that Joe Biden is not tough enough on the cybersecurity front.   In other Joe Biden news, former White House physician and current Rep. Ronny Jackson, R-TX 13th congressional district, is demanding the ‘drooler-in-chief,’ feeble old “Gropin’ Joe” Biden must take a cognitive test and even more importantly, release the results to the American people.  We wholeheartedly concur.
  71. 2021 Friday K: Political News I– As questions continue to rise over what exactly happened on January 06, 2021, and the cacophony of misinformation swirling around the greatest FALSE FLAG OPERATION the nation has ever seen, brave patriots are now asking questions as to what the FBI and their pro-Beijing Director Chris Wray knew and when did they know.  Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district, perhaps one of the greatest patriots the country has ever seen, asked the top question regarding this ginned-up mob of Antifa and Black Lives Matter human fecal matter: “Did the FBI animate the events of that day?”  (Note- we suspect they were in the thick of it, hence WHY there are more than 14,000 hours of video from that day that the public has yet to see.  We do know police on the backside of the Capitol Building waved the mob inside.  We also know that ONCE you see Confederate battle flags flying, you know the FALSE FLAG OPERATION is underway because much like the Tea Party, they never carried rebel flags, Nazi flags, or signs calling for the death of politicians.  There are not enough prisons to silence all of us.
  72. 2021 Friday L: Political News II– Two losers both on the View- lard-lady Meghan McCain (a RINO if ever one existed) and the extremely angry and belligerent (and unattractive) Whoopi Goldberg came close to trading blows on the highly-overrated program over angry old Joe Biden’s treatment of a female reporter.  Yeah, that was pretty bad.  While we dislike both these women, we would love to see ‘Lard Lady’ plant one smack dab in the puss of both Whoopi and ‘Joyless’ Joy Behar.  That would be Pay-per-View TV,  folks.
  73. 2021 Friday M: Political News III– Vice President Mike Pence speaking at the Faith and Freedom Conference in Florida was heckled and booed as a ‘traitor.’  The offenders were escorted out and the vice president’s speech continues.  Meanwhile, there’s a growing clamor for Joe Biden to ask for the resignation of “Kooky Kamala” Harris so he can replace the gibbering jackal with someone actually willing to do the job.  There also is a new bill coming forward demanding that before Willie Brown’s mattress can visit Europe, she visit the southern border FIRST.  Wow.
  74. 2021 Friday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– U.S. Department of Homeland Security Director Alejandro Mayorkas said today- without giving us a single incidence (other than the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021, which is BULLS**T) that domestic terrorism, aka white ‘supremacism’ is the federal government’s number one foe, NOT Chi-Com MSS agents, NOT violent jihadists, NOT Russian agents, NOT Antifa (remember- they’re just a philosophy), and not Black Lives Matter but white folks.  We would encourage Secretary Mayorkas to begin putting up all the threats that have been stopped so we can have some verification that what he claims is true.  Otherwise, we look at it as little more than propaganda.
  75. 2021 Friday O: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– The husband of Ashli Babbitt still seeks answers as to WHY a federal police officer felt so emboldened that he could shoot dead an unarmed woman climbing through a broken window and without warning of the impending shot?  Folks, everyone knows that what happened on January 06, 2021, has been transformed into mythic proportions but the black officer who shot her dead must come forward and answer the questions the American people demand to KNOW.  We believe that U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi- the nonagenarian clinging to the gavel in the House mandated that some people had to die so they could spin the FALSE FLAG OPERATION for the next 60 years which led to the death of Officer Brian Sicknick and U.S. military veteran Babbitt.  Call us ‘conspiracy theorists’ but don’t you think that it’s rather peculiar what actually happened with all of the lies we’ve been told?
  76. 2021 Friday P: Big Tech News– A major poll shows that the majority of Americans believe it’s time to break up Big Tech.
  77. 2021 Friday Q: Religion News– Catholic bishops are moving closer to denying Pro-Death Joe Biden communion over his crazy stance on abortion at all stages and the tacit approval of the selling of baby body parts which friends, puts us on a par with the frigging Chi-Coms.  We contend they should excommunicate EVERY politician supporting the Pro-Death Movement just as they should anyone seeking to topple the Hyde Amendment.
  78. 2021 Friday R: U.S. Senate News– Conniving Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer, DS-NY, says he is ‘going to force a vote on S. 1, the former “For the People Act,’ newly renamed the “John Lewis Voting Rights Act of 2021,” next week in the Senate and will do it sans any input from the Republicans.  Wow.
  79. 2021 Friday S: Economic News– The Fed’s Neel Kashkari advises against rate hikes until sometime towards the end of 2023.  Meanwhile, because of cancellations across 2020-2021, American Airlines has had to refund more than $12 billion in airline tickets.
  80. 2021 Friday T: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega Millions Draw #1669 with a $30 million pot on the line: 14, 36, 44, 46, 53, and Mega 18.  Out of 42,648 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $23,671.
  81. 2021 Friday U: The Wrap Up–  Late breaking news this evening says that- voila!- today, the Biden regime froze military aid to the Ukraine- including lethal weaponry.  This occurs smack dab on the heels of uh, the, uh, Putin-Biden summit in Geneva, Switzerland.  Now, we have been around long enough to recall that when President Donald J. Trump SUPPOSEDLY held up aid to Ukraine to ‘get dirt’ on the Bidens, Democrats impeached him- the first time.  Wow.  Where’s the little bitch, Rep. Adam “Bug-Eyes” Schiff, DS-CA 28th congressional district?  What about that ogre, Rep. Jerrold “Tub of Goo” Nadler, DS-NY 10th congressional district?  Where are the calls for “IMPEACHMENT!  IMPEACHMENT!  IMPEACHMENT!”  Where are they?  Not long after this report appeared, the Biden regime said it ‘was nonsense.’  Sure, right.  You gave Vladimir Putin the oil pipeline and now you’ve finished the job you and Barack Hussein Obama started; you are giving the Ukraine to Vladimir Putin.  My, my, my, the cockroaches always come out at night (and in Hawaii, they fly)…
  82. 2022 Saturday: Everyone knows the drill…

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

[ii] We began offering music by the supergroup Cream on Friday, 17-January-2014 through Monday, 03-February-2014.  Please seek out their albums by visiting posts on those corresponding dates.  You will be glad you did.  Sadly, at the time, we also should have presented the solo catalogs of Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce, and Ginger Baker.  When we do, Derek and the Dominoes will be among them.  We hope to do so at some point within the next decade or so.

[iii] Not sure when Guns ‘n’ Roses is coming but we hope we will still be alive and will get around to sharing them with the world.

[iv] NONE of us believe we will live long enough to promote the music of Ravi Shankar although we wish we could.  Ditto classical music but then- you just never know.

[v] We look forward to promoting the music of the Blues Project within the next five years or so.

[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] We promoted the music of Buffalo Springfield beginning on Saturday, 17-November-2012 through Saturday, 24-November-2012.  We hope you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your collection.  You will be glad you did.

[viii] We should have shared the music of Badfinger at the time we promoted that of the Beatles but guess what?  We flipping failed just as we failed to promote the music of Thunderclap Newman at the same time, we did the Who.  One day, we sure as heck will so, please remain vigilant.

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

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

[xi] At some point, we will do the music of Sonny & Cher the same time we do the Mamas and the Papas.  We hope you will continue awaiting that glorious day.

[xii] We hope to share the music of this legendary artist, the VOICE of the Summer of Love and far beyond.  “If you’re going to San Francisco, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair…”

[xiii] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.    “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely-Hearts Club Band” appeared on Tuesday, 22-November-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[xiv] Not sure as to when we will do the music of Bruce Springsteen.

  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.

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.

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.

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.

  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…

[i] We began promoting the music of Santana on Tuesday, 28-August-2012 through Tuesday, 23-October-2012.  We hope you will seek the music of this famed man and his band out wherever you can find them.

[ii] We promoted the music of Genesis and its members beginning on Tuesday, 02-April-2019 through Sunday, 15-September-2019.  This included not only the parent group but also Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett, Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford, Mike + the Mechanics, and Phil Collins.  Please, look for them.

[iii] We hope to promote the music of John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers soon.

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

[v] 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.

[vi] When we do Electric Flag, we will do Al Kooper.

[vii] We hope to share the music of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band as well as Al Kooper sometime in the next 10-15 years.  We hope you will remain with us as loyal readers.

[viii] We presented the music of Quicksilver Messenger Service on two unique occasions.  The first commenced on Friday, 25-March-2011 through Monday, 04-April-2011.  The second cycle with newer albums began on Tuesday, 20-August-2013 through Monday, 02-September-2013.  We hope you will check the albums out by visiting whatever site you do for nothing but the absolute best in rock music.

[ix] We began promoting the music of the Steve Miller Band beginning on Wednesday, 27-July-2011 through Wednesday, 24-August-2011 and then did a second stint on Sunday, 20-April-2014.  We hope you will check the music of this amazing San Francisco, California, acid-rock blues band.

[xiii] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.

[xiv] Not sure as to when we promote the music of this amazing vocalist.  Within the next two decades is a plausible timeline…

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

[xvi] If we remain in publication long enough, we will promote the music of this famed group.

[xvii] We hope we live long enough (which at our ages is not a guarantee), we want to promote the music of Otis.  There was no one like him; there will never be another like him in the history of the world.

[xviii] We presented another series of interconnected bands which included Free, Bad Company, Led Zeppelin, the Firm, Mott the Hoople, Ian Hunter, the Yardbirds, and a plethora of solo and group efforts beginning on Wednesday, 02-July-2014 through Sunday, 19-October-2014.  We definitely hope that you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your growing collection.

[xix] We promoted the music of the Who and of its individual band members beginning on Monday, 03-August-2015 through Sunday, 29-November-2015.  We hope you will seek out the music of this veteran British band as well as of Pete Townsend, John Entwistle, Keith Moon, and Roger Daltrey.  We know you will enjoy them.  The album, “Tommy,” we promoted the album on Saturday, 08-August-2015.  We hope you will seek it and music by this band and its members out ASAP.

Elsewhere, crackpot Senator Chris Murphy, DS-CT, launches a filibuster on the floor of the U.S. Senate in an effort to ramrod comprehensive gun control through in the wake of the massacre at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida.  (Note- Senator Murphy, since the shooter was a radical jihadist who committed his life to ISIS, wouldn’t it make more sense to filibuster so NO more flipping Muslims enter the frigging country?  Dumbass liberals).

Trump.  F**king diabolical).
  63. 2020 Monday: Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone warlord RAZ changed the name of the new utopic socialized crap hole from CHAZ to CHOP: Capitol Hill Organized Protest.  There, people tremble in fear that they might be beaten and/or evicted at any time while Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkin, CPUSA-WA, pays it little mind and Gov. Jay Inslee- a loser if one ever existed- acts as though he knows nothing about it, a la Sergeant Schultz.   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump and Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr make it known that the pending ‘tell-all’ book by John “Perpetual War” Bolton in which, he attacks his former boss, the current president, has not gone through the normal processes and could be in violation of long-standing federal policy.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Supreme Court upholds civil rights for homosexuals.  It is what it is.  Finally, President Trump informed the world that he is moving ahead with his planned Oklahoma City rally this upcoming Saturday, June 20, 2020.  The left is wailing, gnashing its teeth but the commander-in-chief is correct when he says, ‘all the fears of the Chinese bat flu went out the window when people were out in the streets rioting over the death of George Floyd but oh, no, Trump can’t hold any rallies because we must not take the chance of getting the Wuhan Virus.  Oh, please.  Here is the deal: 800,000 people have sought tickets to the 20,000-seat arena.  Period.  Joe Biden cannot match that.  
  64. 2020 Monday A: Speaking of the Chinese Bat Virus, the one comrade Xi dispatched to the rest of the world, here are today’s stats, world first: 7,965,453 confirmed cases, 434,432 confirmed deaths, and 3,809,566 confirmed recoveries.   Next, here are the stats for the United States: 2,148,380 confirmed cases, 117,700 confirmed deaths, and 662,226 confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are today’s stats, Golden State first: 151,452 confirmed cases, 5,089 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the Aloha State, here are the numbers: 728 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 629 confirmed recoveries.  Finally in the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 26,067 confirmed cases, 1,220 confirmed deaths, and like California, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.

  66. 2021 Tuesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 297,795 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 161,854 deaths  
  67. 2021 Tuesday 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: 3,804,748 confirmed cases, 63,203 confirmed deaths, and 2,065,912 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,351,726 confirmed cases, 37,393 confirmed deaths, and 2,124,674 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 37,067 confirmed cases, 506 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 447,658 confirmed cases, 5,840 confirmed deaths (DOWN), and 220,096 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Arkansas: they have 344,067 confirmed cases, 5,863 confirmed deaths, and 336,107 confirmed recoveries. [ix]   
  68. 2021 Tuesday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,690 confirmed cases, 6,430 confirmed deaths, and 833,029 confirmed recoveries (SAME NUMBERS).   Let’s look at one other country-  Angola, 117th country on the list: 36,921 cases of the virus, 842 confirmed deaths and 30,775 confirmed recoveries.[x]     
  69. 2021 Tuesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,299.33, DOWN 94.42 points (-0.27%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,072.86, DOWN 101.29 points (-0.71%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,246.59, DOWN -8.56 points (-0.20%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $72.65 per barrel, +0.52 (+0.73%).  The price of GOLD is $1,856.90 per troy oz., +0.70 (+0.04%) while the price of SILVER is $27.77 per troy ounce, +0.06 (+0.22%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,153.90 per troy oz, +5.30 (+0.46%) while the price of COPPER is $4.35 per pound, +0.02 (+0.50%).[xi]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,767.93 per troy oz, +5.30 (+0.19%).[xii] The price of RHODIUM is $22,800.00 per troy oz., +500.00 (+2.24%). The price of NEODYMIUM is $602,500.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (-0.00%). [xiii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000025.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.40 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.03.     In Lesotho Loti, one greenback equals 13.76 and in Liberian Dollar, a buck equals 107.60 and in Libyan Dinar, one dollar equals 4.46 of theirs.[xiv]        
  70. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.226 per gallon, $2.966 in Florida, $3.972 in Hawaii, and $3.621 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- Michigan: $3.162.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Zambia: $3.673 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,410,267,967,104 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Cayman Islands, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is India with $216 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position).[xviii]
  71. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Folks, by our count, today is Day No. 84 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka Willie Brown’s ‘sofa,’ to be in charge of the border and to continue being a no-show.  How is it this woman still maintains this ‘job’ much less continues to serve as the faux vice president of the United States.  Hurry up with the election audits so we can boot this woman who schlepped her way to the top along with her boss out of office.  Enough is enough.  Speaking of “Kooky Kamala,” Democrats and Republicans alike are blasting her for taking selfies at a South Carolina vaccination center when she should be down at the border halting the tidal wave of illegal aliens from the Third World.
  72. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Meanwhile, One America News releases the latest updates as to ILLEGAL ALIENS DATA.  First, the cost of caring for all these Untermensch as of today is $533,130,528.  Second, the cost so far this year of handling the illegal alien tsunami for 2021 is $181,355,085,824.  Third, the number of illegal aliens who have crossed the border this year is 1,858,744 while fourth, the total number of illegal aliens estimated to be in the U.S. is 35,858,744.  Since the inception of our original blog site back in 2009, we have speculated that the number of illegals back then was anywhere between 35-to-50 million.  Now, we believe the number is closer to 75-to-100 million.  Let’s begin rounding them up, inserting microchips next to their hearts, and then booting them out of the country as quickly as possible.  We need Donald Trump to come back NOW.
  73. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– In advance of the ‘Joe Biden’-Vladimir Putin summit tomorrow, Joe Biden says that he is going to ‘warn’ Putin in a conversation that could last up to five hours (which is bull crap- no way Joe can do it.  However, we expect that once in the room with their interpreters, Putin actually will be discussing issues with Joe Biden’s earpiece which most likely contains the voice of former regime leader Barack Hussein Obama).   Ahead of their summit, Putin says that Joe has much for which to answer when it comes as to WHY more than 450 people are languishing in D.C. lockups for their part in January 06, 2021, and WHY Ashli Babbitt was shot dead by a police officer.  In essence, what Putin is saying, is ‘look in the mirror at yourselves before you begin pointing the finger at us.’  (Note- we expect some issue will arise that will cancel the Obama-Putin Summit so Joe does not embarrass himself and our country.
  74. 2021 Tuesday I: Foreign News / Overseas News II–  News arose today that suggests that Vladimir Putin will soon be annexing Belarus to the new Russian empire just as they continue applying pressure upon the Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania and continue their war of aggression against Ukraine.  Meanwhile, patriotic Israelis stage a massive march through East Jerusalem as the new liberal government sends out legions of police to keep the ‘radicals’ in line.  These people are NOT radicals and Jerusalem- ALL OF IT- belongs to the Israeli people because God gave them the land more than 3,00 years ago in a covenant between Yahweh and His Chosen People.  March every day!  Regarding Israel, the Israeli Air Force had to strike some targets in Gaza after the criminal Palestinians launched a barrage of incendiary balloons across the border into Israel.  The Israeli fire authorities report the bottom-feeding rabble in Gaza ignited at least 20 fires.  Light ‘em up, Israel, light ‘em up.
  75. 2021 Tuesday J: Foreign News / Overseas News III-Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms sent 28 warplanes- including nuclear-capable bombers and fighters- into Taiwanese airspace in the largest show of force to date.  We hope Taiwan continues beefing up its defenses because in the coming war between the forces of the modern-day Chi-Com Nazis and the freedom-loving people of Free China- Taiwan- there is but one place to stand: on the side of free people.  We should have nuked the Chi-Coms back in 1950.  (Note- communist China expert Gordon Chang says Beijing’s military exercises are no ‘coincidence’).  Finally, Israeli ex-Prime Minister Ehud Olmert says that ‘ignorant’ Ilhan Omar is ‘not worthy’ to be in Congress.
  76. 2021 Tuesday K: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– New evidence continues to arise that shows what most Americans already know: COVID-19 was already in the U.S. by Christmas 2019.  (Note- the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party stooges took care of one another’s problems: COVID-19 allowed the Chi-Coms to end the pro-democracy movement in Hong Kong while the disease allowed the Democrats to get rid of President Donald J. Trump and to vilify his supporters by setting the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021, into action.   In so doing, it permitted both to get rid of their enemies and to allow each one to cover for the other.  The capstone is that Vladimir Putin can now lambaste drooling Joe Biden for keeping the people locked up while hiding the identity of the cop who shot Ashli Babbitt.
  77. 2021 Tuesday L: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II-In other Chi-Vi-related news, former CDC Director Robert Redfield says that the ‘arrogance’ of the Chi-Com scientists may have led to the disaster of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu pandemic destabilizing the world.  Finally, thanks to Red State’s brave reporting, we continue learning the truth that the Xi Jinping Bat Flu pandemic was indeed cooked up like methamphetamine in the Wuhan Institute of Virology for use as a biowarfare weapons.  If their stats are correct, the reason the Chi-Coms’ numbers are so low is that they were prepared for it in advance.
  78. 2021 Tuesday M: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– President Donald J. Trump continues ramping up pressure on the Keystone State to conduct an Arizona-style 2020 Election audit.
  79. 2021 Tuesday N: Political News I– GOP lawmakers seek to defund schools using the bogus and racist 1619 Project in its educational regimen.  Good.  In other news, Robert Bork Jr. says that ‘his father would be appalled that ‘Cho-Mo Joe’ Biden is president.  Of course when Biden was on the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee, he eviscerated Bork’s father who was up for a SCOTUS nomination.   Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo launches a new PAC with which to help worthy candidates in the fight to reclaim the U.S. House and Senate in 2022.  Moving on, it’s official: the GOP have introduced a bill to fire Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci for his mishandling of the COVID-19 crisis as well as his potential enrichment from his mistakes.
  80. 2021 Tuesday O: Business News– Wall Street ends DOWN over investor fears in anticipation of the coming report from the Federal Reserve.  In other business news, Southwest Airlines has had to cancel more than 1,000 flights due to technical issues but we think they were ‘hacked.’  Everyone else is so why not them?
  81. 2021 Tuesday P: Joe Biden Regime News I– U.S. Department of Homeland Security Director Alejandro Mayorkas returns from a trip to Mexico.  We suspect he went there to clean up the mess made by ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris who takes nothing seriously but laughs at everything like the yammering jackal she is.  In other news, ‘Joe Biden’s’ proposed budget is $6 trillion, which will drive the U.S. deficit to the moon.  The senile old fool’s handlers are going to drive taxes up on the American people.  This is insanity, it’s akin to King John crushing the people and Robin Hood fighting back on behalf of the people.  In other regime news, Joe Biden wants to spend $100 million ANNUALLY to combat domestic terrorism.
  82. 2021 Tuesday Q: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– While conducting a turtle-nesting study in Florida, researchers come across $1.2 million worth of cocaine.   Next, the U.S. Department of Justice seeks to reinstate the death penalty against Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.  Elsewhere, a judge rules that Harvey Weinstein can be sent to California to face a rape charge in the Golden State.
  83. 2021 Tuesday R: National Security News– Tucker Carlson reported tonight on his Fox News Channel show that government documents reveal that there were numerous FBI agents involved in the events of January 06, 2021, ‘unindicted co-conspirators’ who helped organize the protests that day and then participated in leading them into the Capitol Building.  We have said countless times that what happened on January 06, 2021, was the largest FALSE FLAG OPERATION carried out in the history of our country so as to bring down President Donald J. Trump, vilify his supporters, and then to place a Chi-Com-backed stooge into the White House.  This only reinforces what we believe and what we have been saying for months now.
  84. 2021 Tuesday S: Big Tech News– “Little Mark” Zuckerberg made one of the biggest (and stupidest) mistakes of his life when he tried to buy rights to Pink Floyd’s “Another Brick in the Wall, Pt. 2” for an undisclosed massive amount of money.  Roger Waters, creative fire behind the British band and writer of most of its songs said, ‘there is no F***ing way I am going to allow a F***ing POS like Zuckerberg to use MY song so he can brainwash young people.’  A supporter of Julian Assange, Waters the song was as important back then as it is now especially since Facebook is rapidly becoming a Big Brother-like entity spying on people around the globe, sucking up their data, and then doing its damnedest to control their minds.  God bless you, Roger; it’s good to know patriots and freedom fighters still exist.  As for Zuck, well, he can go F*** himself in the ass.
  85. 2021 Tuesday T: Religion News– U.S. Roman Catholic bishops are meeting to discuss the denying of communion to Pro-Death politicians.  The Holy Father Pope Francis ordered them NOT to deny communion to the abortion-loving, Marxist Democrats because in our view, Francis is a Marxist, too, and unfit to lead the church.  We hope the bishops excommunicate ALL Pro-Death politicians from the church.  Let them languish in Limbo.
  86. 2021 Tuesday U: Health and Medical Alerts– A new study reports that for about one-quarter of all survivors of the Chi-Vi, they develop other, much more chronic issues down the road.  The Chi-Coms claim their pandemic did not originate in their biowarfare program but folks, every scrap of news we hear connected to the ‘VID tells us one thing and one thing only: the Chi-Coms cooked this crap up and then infected the rest of the world.   E-V-I-L.
  87. 2021 Tuesday V: U.S. House of Representatives News– Nonagenarian House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, she with the lopsided breasts, says that the House will proceed with its ‘investigation’ into the (FALSE FLAG OPERATION) of January 06, 2021.  As we all recall, the crowd of peaceful Trump supporters was infiltrated by Antifa thugs and Black Lives Matter human fecal matter.  The rest as they say is ‘history.’  In other House news, loser Rep. Adam “Bug-Eyes” Schiff, DS-CA 28th congressional district says that has unlimited power to spy on the American people and to seize any records he so desires even as he raises a stink about the Bill Barr DOJ’s subpoenas for phone records belonging to Democrat lawmakers.  Moving on, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, is pushing ‘Mumbles” Pelosi to strip Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, CPUSA-MI 5th congressional district, of her seat on the House Intel Committee because of her hatred of Israel and her love of all things ‘jihad.’
  88. 2021 Tuesday W: U.S. Senate News I– The U.S. Senate confirmed Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to take the seat of now-Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals.  A likely future nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court- should “Cho-Mo Joe” Biden stick around long enough to get to nominate a pick- Jackson was confirmed by a vote of 53-44.  In other U.S. Senate news, Senator John Barrasso, R-WY, says that ‘Joe Biden’s nominee to head the Bureau of Land Management- Tracy Stone-Manning- should be booted over her support or involvement in past acts of eco-terrorism.  The Democrats NEVER possess a scrap of shame for their crazed, left-wing, Marxist actions.  Shame.  Elsewhere, Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, says ‘U.S. servicemembers are complaining about the overly WOKE Pentagon’s policies.’  Amen.  As they should… He is also concerned that the Chi-Coms will be harvesting the DNA of Olympians at the Summer Olympics in Tokyo.  Finally, the Senate Judiciary Committee is debating the House Bill H.R. 6 that will grant amnesty and citizenship to 3 million frigging illegal aliens without determining whether there are thugs and rapists among them.  (Note- the Democrats truly hate the people they lead).
  89. 2021 Tuesday X: U.S. Senate News II– Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, R-KY, says that there must be grave consequences for the purposeful leaking of a person’s tax records.  Speaking of “Cocaine Mitch,” he says there is NO WAY that “Gropin’ Joe” Biden will get someone onto the U.S. Supreme Court in 2024.  Another denizen of the U.S. Senate, Senator “Cho-Mo Bob” Menendez, DS-NJ, says that ‘Joe Biden must treat Vladimir Putin like the ‘killer’ he is.  Good for you, Bob, good for you.  Next, Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says that ‘the Biden regime’s blanket amnesty covers dangerous criminals, too.’
  90. 2021 Tuesday Y: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump names Liz Harrington as his new spokesperson as Jason Miller is taking over as the CEO of a new tech start-up company.  The company owns one of the social media platforms the 45th president is considering appropriating with which to get his message out to the American people and his supporters around the world.
  91. 2021 Tuesday Z: Economic News– A new Trafalgar poll says that MORE Americans blame ‘Cho-Mo Joe’ Biden than they do President Donald J. Trump for the rising inflation now afflicting the country.
  92. 2021 Tuesday AA: Environmental News I– Former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows calls the G7 Summit’s agreement on ‘climate change actions’ a terrible deal.
  93. 2021 Tuesday BB: Texas State News– Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, sends a powerful message to the laughing hyena ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris when he tells her the ‘border crisis is no laughing matter.’  The Lone Star State’s governor is going to seek contributions so that his state can continue building the wall to halt the ongoing flow of millions of ravenous illegal aliens roaring over the Southwest frontier like a cloud of locusts.  The state is also encouraging all states who can spare law enforcement officers to send them to Texas to help guard the frontier.  Governor Abbott- where can we send the checks?  (Note- all the cops run out of cities that won’t support them will be heading to Texas and Arizona, we suspect).  However, a government watchdog says, ‘Joe Biden’s halt of wall construction does not violate U.S. law.’ Speaking of Governor Abbott, President Donald J. Trump has accepted his invitation to tour the southern border with him and other officials on the last Wednesday at the end of the month.
  94. 2021 Tuesday CC: Observation of the Day– IF the United States was filled with as many WHITE SUPREMACISTS as Democrats claim, don’t you think it strange that during the eight years of the ‘first black president,’ no one- especially NO WHITE PERSON- ever tried to assassinate him?  The Secret Service isn’t that good.  However, had someone tried- or worse- had the Democrats conducted a FALSE FLAG OPERATION whereby they picked some random loser and had him or her make an attempt on the life of the 44th president, can you imagine the political bludgeoning they could have carried out on ‘white males?’  We will say this: it should be clear that true political violence is no longer a problem in this country whereas mob violence at street level is.  But in a nation that saw Presidents Abraham Lincoln, James A. Garfield, William McKinley, and John F. Kennedy shot dead as well as two attempts on the life on President Gerald R. Ford and the attempted assassination of President Ronald Reagan, no attempt on the life of an American president has occurred in 41 years.  In the last century, we saw the assassinations of Senator Robert F. Kennedy as well as that of famed civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. but no attempts on three highly popular/unpopular presidents depending upon whom you ask- George W. Bush, Barack Hussein Obama, and Donald J. Trump- since the turn of the century tells us one thing.  Much of the violence we see is ginned up by the left and what’s clear is, we believe that the left was trying to gin up someone among their ranks to do the unthinkable to President Trump yet were unable to find a fall guy or worse- coerce a patsy- into carrying out their loony-tunes agenda of vilification followed by violence.  No, we say, ‘WHITE SUPREMACISM’ no longer is around but there sure is a whole lotta ‘BLACK SUPREMACISM’ afflicting our country like cancer gobbling away at one’s privates.  Let’s do something to end this stupidity.   Democrats, can we set RACE ATTACKS aside?  This is going to destroy our country and even worse, you pathetic bottom-feeding scumbags know it and yet you persist.  Let me know what you think.  Thank you- Chef Vicky.
  95. 2021 Tuesday DD: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1668 with a $30 million pot on the line.  18, 22, 27, 38, 52, and Mega 11.  Out of 50,948 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were 35 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $383 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

165. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, JUNE 14, 2022

2021 Monday L: Political News I- The GOP is blasting senile old Joe Biden’s DISMAL performance at the G7 where he cannot maintain any sort of coherent thought, shows up 2-3 hours late to meetings and press gaggles, and has other world leaders like Turkish thug, aka “The Sultan” Recep Tayyip Erdoğan arriving late to meet with the American usurper. This is becoming increasingly embarrassing and the promised propaganda that ‘the American people would have to run to keep up with Joe’ has yet to appear. Look, the Dems stole the 2020 presidential election as well as several U.S. Senate races. Not only does the American people know the truth, so, too, does the rest of the world.

  59. 2021 Monday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 297,326 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 162,323 deaths  
  60. 2021 Monday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,803,373 confirmed cases, 63,193 confirmed deaths, and 2,065,117 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,346,153 confirmed cases, 37,265 confirmed deaths, and 2,009,593 confirmed recoveries (SAME NUMBERS!).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 37,011 confirmed cases, 506 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 446,411 confirmed cases, 5,858 confirmed deaths, and 219,522 confirmed recoveries (SAME NUMBERS).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Connecticut: they have 348,645 confirmed cases, 8,263 confirmed deaths, and 335,697 confirmed recoveries.[xi]   
  61. 2021 Monday C: Foreign Covid Stats Of The Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,690 confirmed cases, 6,430 confirmed deaths, and 833,029 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country-  Cambodia, 116th country on the list: 38,969 cases of the virus, 348 confirmed deaths and 32,967 confirmed recoveries.[xii]

[xv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000025.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.40 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.93.     In Lao Kip, one greenback equals 9,397.17 and in Latvian Lats, a buck equals 0.60489 and in Lebanese Pound, one dollar equals 1,501.70 of theirs.[xvi]        
  63. 2021 Monday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.226 per gallon, $2.968 in Florida, $3.962 in Hawaii, and $3.616 in Washington state.[xvii]    Let’s look at one other location- Maine: $3.057.  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- Tanzania: $3.671 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,406,098,264,099 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xix]  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 Hong Kong, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Cayman Islands with $223 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).[xx]
  64. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– By our count, today is Day No. 83 in which, the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris has held the gig and as of today has yet to visit the southern border a single time.   It would appear the Biden regime should terminate her employment not only in this extremely critical job but as the ‘supposed’ No. 2 behind an increasingly feeble “Cho-Mo Joe” Biden.  We mean, how long can ‘Gropin’ Joe’ go?  Next, One America News network reports the latest statistics for the ongoing border holocaust.  First, total cost today for caring for the millions of illegals eating away at the foundation of our country is: $582,876,864.  Second, total cost for caring for the Untermensch this year: $180,308,951,040.  Wow.  Imagine how that money could help our homeless, our impoverished, and the American people felled by the Chi-Com Virus?  It would be tremendous.  Third, here is the estimated number of illegal alien invaders who have crossed the border this year: 1,848,022.  Fourth and final, here is the total ESTIMATED number for the total number of illegal aliens in the country as we speak: 35,828,024.  Note- we have said on countless occasions since the blog’s inception back in the spring of 2009 that we believe the numbers of Untermensch in the country actually is closer to 50 million on the low end and 80-100 million on the high end.  We believe our numbers will one day be validated by the statistics.
  65. 2021 Monday G: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Lawmakers in the United Kingdom are urging “Cho-Mo Joe” Biden’s earpiece to give up the notion of prosecuting famed journalist and media freedom fighter Julian Assange.  (Note- we bet that if someone were to ask the ‘drooler-in-chief’ about Mr. Assange, he would have no clue as to the answer.   Next, the Chi-Coms have put the squeeze on the citizens of Hong Kong.  Any movie deemed ‘un-patriotic’ to the Xi Jinping regime will have to be censored or banned.   Next, Naftali Bennett took the oath of office for his short-lived term as prime minister of Israel today.  We predict that Benjamin Netanyahu will be back by summer’s end.  Elsewhere, Swiss voters soundly reject new measures with which to cut carbon emissions- so beloved by their government- because the Alpine nation bears responsibility for just 0.01-percent of ALL climate emissions.  The people are NOT going to permit their lawmakers to go full-blown climate change cuckoo.  God bless them.
  66. 2021 Monday H: Foreign News / Overseas News II– As ‘fearless leader’ “Cho-Mo Joe” Biden ambles about Europe on his first overseas trip to the G7 and to NATO, prior to meeting with his string-puller Vladimir Putin on Wednesday, it’s understandable that the drooling octogenarian president won’t take a strong stance on Ukraine becoming a member of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.  (Note- trying to add Ukraine to the famed military alliance could be the final straw breaking Russia’s back that could lead to a new Axis of Russia, communist China, Iran, North Korea, Cuba, Venezuela, and other s—hole countries going to war against the world.  Do we genuinely believe that an army of 1 million Russians and 10 million Red Chinese on Russia’s western border could not overrun the rest of Europe within 14 days, the same amount of time it took Nazi Germany to overrun Poland in 1939?).  In other G7/NATO news, NATO designates the Chi-Coms ‘a systemic threat’ to both the EU and NATO but to the rest of the world.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, they appear to have their own Chernobyl going on at the Taishan Nuclear Power Plant as the French operator at the site is warning that a massive radiological leak is to be expected anytime soon.  WTF is up with the Chi-Coms and the French?
  67. 2021 Monday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information– U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken says that ‘the Chi-Coms are unwilling to investigate the origins of THEIR pandemic.  Next, Novavax plans to apply for emergency use authorization of its Chi-Vi vaccine in the U.S.  (Note- there’s another one we won’t be taking anytime soon).   Next, the so-called Delta COVID-19 variant is said to increase the risk of hospitalization by 200-percent which, we believe is yet another ploy to force free American citizens into getting Chi-Vi vaccines.  Meanwhile, Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson of Tucker Carlson Tonight shared a story from Sky News Australia news reporter Sharri Markson recently covered: yes, indeed, there were indeed a whole lotta bats in the Wuhan Institute of Virology where Chi-Com ‘medical researchers’ conducted experiments on bat viruses with humanized mice.  Wow.  And bit by bit the truth continues coming out…
  68. 2021 Monday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– The Arizona GOP is blasting the anti-audit stance currently exhibited by U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland.   Next, a new report says that a ‘hacking tool’ helped flip votes from President Donald J. Trump to the basement-dwelling, “Cho-Mo Joe” Biden in both Pennsylvania and Michigan.
  69. 2021 Monday K: Joe Biden News– One America News showed video of ‘Cho-Mo Joe’ Biden at the G7 Summit fiddling with yet another cheat sheet in which, he had his talking points such as Trump-bashing predominantly highlighted so he could keep his increasingly feeble ass near the target.  This is not just embarrassing; it’s flipping dangerous and everyone in the world knows this man is incapable of leading his fellow rest home folks in a game of bingo much less the United States.  His ‘No. 2- “Kooky Kamala” is not much better.  Our country is in grave danger.
  70. 2021 Monday L: Political News I– The GOP is blasting senile old Joe Biden’s DISMAL performance at the G7 where he cannot maintain any sort of coherent thought, shows up 2-3 hours late to meetings and press gaggles, and has other world leaders like Turkish thug, aka “The Sultan” Recep Tayyip Erdoğan arriving late to meet with the American usurper.  This is becoming increasingly embarrassing and the promised propaganda that ‘the American people would have to run to keep up with Joe’ has yet to appear.  Look, the Dems stole the 2020 presidential election as well as several U.S. Senate races.  Not only does the American people know the truth, so, too, does the rest of the world.
  71. 2021 Monday M: U.S. Supreme Court News– The U.S. Supreme Court says, ‘NO early release for low-level crack offenders who were convicted more than a decade ago.’  Hmmm, say, aren’t these people doing time in federal prisons for the crack rock there because of Joe Biden’s crime bill that sent generations of young black men to prison for crack while white users of power cocaine got short sentences.  By a 9-0 ruling, the Supreme Court says that the crack heads doing hard time cannot take advantage of President Donald J. Trump’s 2018 First Step Act that sought to reduce lengthy sentences for low-level drug offenders.
  72. 2021 Monday N: Miscellaneous News I– Upon being threatened with the withholding of taxes and other fees by business owners in Baltimore, Maryland, the city says they will come to their aid and do something about the rampant homelessness and increasing violent crime rates.  About flipping time, folks.   Next, speaking at the MAGA FRANK rally in New Richmond, Wisconsin, over the weekend, former Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr., D-WI, says ‘enough is enough with George Floyd’ (as the Dems continue pushing their ‘police reform bill) and says that IF Mr. Floyd had complied with the cops, he would still be alive today rather than turning into mulch today.  We concur.
  73. 2021 Monday O: Joe Biden Regime News I– A new Zogby poll says that a majority of Americans believe the Fake News Media is covering up for “Drooling Joe” Biden.  Hell, we believe it, too.
  74. 2021 Monday P: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– Father Michael and son Peter Taylor pled guilty in a Tokyo court to having helped former Nissan Motor Chairman Carlos Ghosn flee to his native Lebanon back in December 2019.  Lebanon has no extradition treaty with Japan.  The father and son duo were reportedly paid $1.5 million to help Ghosn escape Japan as police closed in on him over corruption charges.  Sucks to be you, two.  However, one must question as to WHY the Biden regime would extradite U.S. citizens to stand trial in a foreign country?  Hell, the Biden regime could soon be extraditing patriotic chef-bloggers such as the AICPENDBLOG.COM’s stable of open-minded thinkers to stand trial in Beijing for having insulted ‘Great Leader’ Xi Jinping by calling HIS pandemic the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  In other crime and punishment news, NSA leaker Reality Winner (yep, that’s the dumb ass’ name) is getting early release after going to prison for leaking National Security Administration secrets regarding Russian hacking and the supposed involvement of  President Donald J. Trump.
  75. 2021 Monday Q: Environmental News I– Ronald Kessler says the ‘myth of human beings causing global warming has been shattered.’
  76. 2021 Monday R: Health And Medical Alerts– U.S. hospital workers are pushing back against dictates they must take the Chi-Com Wuhan Flu Virus vaccines.  A group of healthcare workers in Texas recently lost a court case but when the majority of employees at the NIAID and NIH refuse to take the vaccines just as the United States Marine Corps has, why should they have to take this potentially toxic shit?  Heading to the United States Supreme Court.  What happened to ‘my body, my choice?’
  77. 2021 Monday S: Moron News–  Sandy “The Fly” Cortez- known by some as AOC- continues her demands for U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer to step down because he ‘ain’t woke enough.’  Skank, we are calling for YOU and your demented, Marx-spouting sisters to step down.  You’re still there.  Shut the f**k up.   Until House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, CPUSA-CA 12th congressional district, came in to the rescue to try to smooth things over between members of her party and the crackpot (Suicide) Squad of Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, CPUSA-NY 14th congressional district, Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, CPUSA-MN 5th congressional district, Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, CPUSA-MI 13th congressional district, Ayanna “Chrome Dome” Pressley, CPUSA-MA 7th congressional district, and Cori “The Bitch” Bush, CPUSA-MO 1st congressional district, Democratic Party leaders were tearing up both Omar and “The Fly.”  Finally, blowback continues to splatter across the face of CNN’s Brianna Keilar for her trying to whitebitchsplain to Rep. Byron Donalds, R-FL 19th congressional district, as to WHY the Black Congressional Caucus won’t have him (hint- he’s a Republican).  What is it with these white skanks trying to tell black men what is wrong with them or how they should think?  Enough!
  78. 2021 Monday T: U.S. House of Representatives News–  Congressmen Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district, and Kat Cammack, R-FL 3rd congressional district, have launched the Campus Free Speech Caucus.  Next, Congressmen Andrew Clyde, R-GA 9th congressional district, and Louie Gohmert, R-TX 1st congressional district, are suing the Pelosi House regime over its forcing of legislators to pass through metal detectors or to face a BIG FINE.  Good.  We hope you win.  In other House of Representatives news, Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-NY 22nd congressional district, says that ‘former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has every right to step up and speak out about Joe Biden and Iran.’
  79. 2021 Monday U: President Donald J. Trump News– Donald J. Trump Jr. said of his father that he ‘does not believe Congress is an option.’  Remember- there were some who claimed that President Trump might run for Congress so he could become speaker of the House and fix the mess there.  Donald Trump Jr. further said that the difference in press coverage between his father and ‘Gropin’ Joe” Biden is ‘insane.’  However, the gaffes continually being made by the ‘drooler-in-chief’ are increasingly being seen in some parts of the media unafraid of reporting the TRUTH.  President Trump said of Pennsylvania state Senator Jake Corman, GOP, originally questioned the ‘election of Joe Biden’ but now, is shying away from backing a 2020 Election audit in the Keystone State.  (Note- you know the old saw- the Dems must have found either a dead girl or a live boy in the bed of Senator Corman with which to blackmail him into behaving like a Democrat).
  80. 2021 Monday V: Economic News– The Cedar Point Amusement Park in Sandusky, Ohio, began paying its workers $20 per hour to come back to work.  Other businesses are having a challenging time reopening as 99.9-percent of them cannot pay wages close to that.  It is causing economic ripples throughout the region and it’s going to be interesting to see what happens to the Buckeye State.
  81. 2021 Monday W: Sports News– Medina Spirit trainer Bob Baffert sues over New York statewide ban on him and professional horseracing.
  82. 2021 Monday X: Texas State News– Democrats and their string-pullers in the Fake News Media are attacking Governor Greg Abbott, GOP, and his stance on promoting the 1836 Project.  The 1836 Project defends the history of the Lone Star State and will prohibit Marxist teachers from belittling or covering up the heroic stand by patriots against the fascist Mexican army.  Democrats always try to get rid of TRUE HISTORY so they can insert their FAKE HISTORY in its place.  Yes, Texas owned slaves, yes, Mexico ended slavery upon declaring its independence (and then tried to exterminate their indigenous population), and yes, the U.S. had slaves until 1865.  However, Brazil had them until 1888 and Haiti ended the institution in 1798.  The New World was founded upon slavery- especially from the Spanish, the Dutch, the Portuguese, and the Brits so what’s the left’s point?  This is why we remember history and why we congratulated Governor Abbott for his strong stance behind the 1836 Project.  Meanwhile, Texas-based border zones see 71-percent or more of all illegal aliens flooding into the country.  (Note- we encourage the completion of the wall, trenches, vehicle, boat, and personnel obstacles, electrified fencing, armed drones, and even snipers in the high traffic areas turning traffickers’ heads into splattered gray matter.  It is US or it is THEM.  We choose “THEM.”
  83. 2021 Monday Y: Fake News– Juan Williams, the always-wrong Fox News Channel ‘pundit’ says that the Republicans are preparing to steal future elections by denying the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021, and the various states beginning to perform intensive audits of the 2020 Presidential- and other- elections.  It is clear that the dingleberry Mr. Williams has yet to visit Arizona’s election audit and it’s clear that even though he works at FNC, he truly consumes news from only the left side of the spectrum.  Whatever this dimwit says is to be scoffed at, laughed at, just like when he lost his job at NPR back in 2010 for saying honestly that when he saw ‘a bunch of Muslims on an airplane, it made him afraid.’  Mr. Williams boisterous defense of the LEFT at Fox over the past five years or so has demonstrated that he is willing to do anything to keep on the good side of his FNC MASTERS.  There is NO other way to say it.
  84. 2021 Monday Z: The Wrap-Up– Joe Biden at the NATO summit says that ‘Russia and communist China are trying to drive a wedge between NATO members.’ Uh, okay, how does this work? First, Joe Biden shuts off U.S. energy independence while giving the green light to Vladimir Putin to construct his natural gas pipeline from the Baltic coast to Germany. NATO exists to defend Europe from the Russians yet the Russians are going to supply Europe with energy thus making them dependent when President Donald J. Trump was supplying them with American natural gas.  If anyone is ‘driving a wedge between NATO member states,’ it would appear to be the Biden regime who not only is favorable to the Chi-Coms but also to the Russians who seemed to have been the ones to have put him in power.  Wow.
  85. 2022 Tuesday: We are living in STRANGE TIMES folks what with an ILLEGAL Presidency in the USA.  We have never been down this road before but what is clear, we are going to fight back.  Stick around.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The first Beach Boys album of the 1980s came out on March 24, 1980, the extremely popular “Keepin’ the Summer Alive.”  The album features the same lineup as the preceding one: Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), and Bruce Johnston (vocals and bass).  The title track received considerable airplay but like its predecessor, “Keepin’ the Summer Alive” received the same blasé reviews from the critics which is a shame.  We mean, come on, man, to quote our drooling president, does a band have to give up the hard drugs and return to the halcyon hippie days of the late 1960s-early 1970s to get the creative juices flowing again?  Ah, well, we love the band and enjoy the album and we sure hope that you will seek it out and to make it a part of your daily listening pleasure.  You will be glad you did.  Enjoy.
