Question is, does the conflict in Ukraine possess the same spark potential as did the assassination of Austro-Hungarian Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his beloved wife, Sophie? Take out Putin NOW!

  63. 2020 Thursday B: New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, Democrat, raised the top tax rate to 10.75-percent, the highest rate in the nation which is going to drive even more people out of the state and will then fall atop the lower classes to pay.  Insane.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump signed a proclamation at the National Archives today that creates the 1776 Commission, designed to promote positives about the United States, its founding, its history, and its heroes, including slaveowner Cesar Rodney who was the deciding vote on passing the U.S. Constitution.  Friends, we cannot judge people of the past by the standards of today.  Remember that.  Meanwhile, President Trump is encouraging the PAC 10 to begin playing football like the BIG 10.  Speaking of football, tonight’s Thursday Night Football game is between the Cincinnati Bengals v. the Cleveland Browns.  The Browns won 35-30.

  81. 2021 Friday N: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump says what everyone else is thinking, that tomorrow’s ‘Justice for J6 Rally’ is going to be a setup.  We believe that tomorrow’s affair is going to be a “Mumbles” Pelosi setup what with loads of FBI informants, Antifa and Black Lives Matter infiltrators, and that anyone who does not want to end up in the D.C. gulag with the other 400-plus poor souls would be wise to avoid the nation’s capital.  Meanwhile, President Trump blasts one of the losers who voted to impeach him- retiring Rep. Anthony Gonzalez, RINO-OH 16th congressional district, by saying that the Rep.’s vote to impeach him was ‘very stupid.’  It was.  Look at what is happening to the losers who voted to impeach the 45th president.  One by one, they are losing support, becoming impotent, and will soon all be gone.
  82. 2021 Friday O: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden is weighing executive privilege in releasing documents related to President Donald J. Trump and the events of January 06, 2021.  Speaking of slobbering Joe, his approval ratings have imploded down to 44-percent- his lowest yet- which means in reality, the loser’s polls are nearer 34-30-percent than they are 44-percent.  Newsmax host Rob Finnerty says, ‘bye-bye Bide, the future we all knew was coming and didn’t want to admit.’ Meanwhile, in another slap to the feeble dictator, two large polluter nations were absent from Joe Biden’s follow-up climate summit.  Finally, Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry says that ‘Joe Biden’s mandate regarding businesses forcing employees to get the Chi-Com vaccinations is divisive and that it undermines doctors.’
  83. 2021 Friday P: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden regime has interceded in the Purdue Pharma company settlement wanting to go after them some more.  In other Biden regime-related news, the impotent U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken deleted a tweet that said, “The U.S. stands with Hong Kong.”  Chi-Coms didn’t like that, eh?  Next- in something that sounds mighty unconstitutional to most of us here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM, the Biden regime is cutting off the supply of monoclonal antibodies to Red States.
  84. 2021 Friday Q: Joe Biden Regime News II– Nineteen days after blowing up an Afghan ally of the United States and nine members of his family for being the ‘one’ who plotted and carried out the August 27, 2021, suicide bombing that killed 13 American servicemen-and-women, the Pentagon was forced to announce that it had erred taking ‘Taliban intel’ and blowing up this poor man and his family sight unseen.  Oooh, the mighty United States, whacking and stacking God knows who just as it did during the heady days of Obama-Biden.  Still, the Biden regime has better things to do- the U.S. Department of Justice is reviewing the way it holds ‘tranny prisoners’ in federal prisons.
  85. 2021 Friday R: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– Served papers yesterday while on a live radio program conducting an interview, famed political strategist Roger Stone said ‘there’s NO evidence supporting the lawsuit against him’ regarding U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, the geriatric, nonagenarian leader of the House, and her claims of being behind the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021.  We believe you, Roger.  Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin has okayed ‘100 National Guard troops to be on scene for the Saturday rally.’
  86. 2021 Friday S: Political News I– The Republican National Committee has released a new ad showing the countless times that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci has lied, flipflopped, or laid bull crap on the American people. Ronna McDaniel- chair of the RNC- says that ‘Joe Biden’s COVID-19 mandates are the results of his far too many failures.’  Next, Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, says that ‘Joe Biden has NO business forcing COVID-19 mandates on the American people.’  Amen. 
  87. 2021 Friday T: Political News II– Axios reported today- to the dismay of the Biden regime- that under no circumstances will Senator Joe Manchin, D- W. VA, will vote ‘YES’ on the $3.5 trillion infrastructure bill.  Good.  Elsewhere, Arkansas senatorial candidate and U.S. Army veteran Jake Bequette says that the massive crowds attending college football games shows that the American people are ready to return to their lives.  The government had better pay attention to this. 
  88. 2021 Friday U: Political News III– Thirteen hardcore leftist Dems are pushing for expanded unemployment benefits in the infrastructure and budget reconciliation bills.  Meanwhile, Health and Human Services tells Texas abortion providers, “We got your backs.”  Elsewhere, Rep. “Shtupping Steny” Hoyer, D-MD 5th congressional district, says that the House will hold a vote so as to avoid imminent government default and subsequent shutdown.  Elsewhere, as mobs of illegal alien invaders swarm under the Del Rio, Texas, bridge, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says that the “National Guard should be deployed to maintain order under and along that bridge as a swarm of 10,000 or more Haitian ‘asylum seekers’ mills about there.
  89. 2021 Friday V: U.S. Military News– As outrage continues to grow regarding Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Mark A. (Asshole) Milley and his phone calls with the Chi-Coms, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and U.S. National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien say the ‘NSA had NO intel suggesting anything that disingenuous fiction author Bob Woodward says in his new book, “Peril,” existed.  Mr. Woodward says that ‘General Milley called the Chi-Coms to warn them that he would warn them should Trump decide to nuke them in his final days.’  Gen. Milley must face courts marshal for being a traitor.
  90. 2021 Friday W: Business News– Ford Motor Company claims the demand for its EV Ford 150 electric trucks is so great that they are going to invest $250 million to increase production and add another 450 jobs in three plants in Michigan to meet this incredible demand.  Wow.  Meanwhile, Tesla is going to work with regulators on data security, something of which, they seem to have problems.
  91. 2021 Friday X: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– After many years, ‘jinx’ multi-millionaire Robert Durst finally was found guilty of murdering his best friend.  Meanwhile, the judge in the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse- accused of murdering two Antifa POS- said that the prosecution cannot bring up ties between Mr. Rittenhouse and the patriotic organization, the Proud Boys.
  92. 2021 Friday Y: Big Tech News– Get this: the arbiter of what’s ‘true’ on the Internet, Google, and Apple, have removed imprisoned critic of Vladimir Putin- Alexei Navalny’s ‘tactical voting app’ designed to mobilize the Russian people to fight back against the new communist dictator, Mr. Putin.  Meanwhile, Chi-Com intelligence gathering app- TikTok- has a new problem, the so-called ‘devious licks challenge’ that encourages American school-aged kids to break the law via vandalism.  Isn’t it about time we began nuking these sons of bitches?
  93. 2021 Friday Z: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Sadly, the final Sears (and Roebuck) store- north of Chicago, Illinois- is set to close on November 14, 2021.  What a tragedy of mismanagement, not knowing its customers any longer, and being unable to morph with the times.  Sad, extremely sad, it did not have to happen.
  94. 2021 Friday AA: New York State News– Freshman Governor Kathy Hochul, D-NY, has given the people of her state a big gift: 191 freed inmates.  Meanwhile, three people went off on a New York City eatery host for requesting proof of vaccination before allowing them to enter.
  95. 2021 Friday BB: Texas State News– Another Texas death row inmate has had his execution delayed over religious freedom claims.  Meanwhile, Governor Greg Abbott signed a $1.8 billion infrastructure bill to continue erecting the Trump border wall.  The governor said, ‘Joe Biden’s failures to do his job guarding the border has forced Texas to do the federal government’s job at protecting the border and its citizens.’  Meanwhile, state Representative Matt Krause, Republican, is going to primary sitting Attorney General Ken Paxton in 2022.
  96. 2021 Friday CC: Moron News I– Campus Reform students sign a petition to abolish the U.S. Constitution because it’s racist, doesn’t recognize gays, trannys, and people of color.  In other ‘moron news,’ U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-12th congressional district, a person whom capitalism has benefitted immensely, jumped on the socialist train while overseas and says that ‘capitalism has not served the U.S. well.’
  97. 2021 Friday DD: Whacked-Out News of the Day– Today, Los Angeles, California, was announced to be the ‘Bedbug capital of the United States.’  Now that’s a distinction that every town and city in the entire United States covets.  Wow. No wonder we no longer like going to the city of (Fallen) Angels.
  98. 2021 Friday EE: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1695 what with a $400 million jackpot on the line: 17, 32, 40, 59, 61, and Mega 18.  Out of 130,606 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $17,613 apiece.
  99. 2021 Saturday: Observation of the Day– This past Tuesday, Greta Van Susteren had John “Perpetual War” Bolton on her show on Newsmax and the two discussed the possibility of Vladimir Putin resorting to tactical nukes on the battlefield in Ukraine.   Look, if Adolf Hitler had nukes in 1944 or 1945, he would have used them against Great Britain and Russia for sure and the against U.S. if he could have delivered them.  That little cave-dwelling, slope-headed cretin Vladimir Putin sure as heck does have nukes and if he is facing Armageddon, then so will his enemies.  He already has severed energy supplies to the stupid-assed Europeans who came to depend upon him the same way American leaders delivered our country into the pockets of Xi Jinping.  We could be on the cusp of a global catastrophe much like the world was in early summer 1914 because back then, NO one believed that a far-off conflict in Eastern Europe could envelop almost all of the world in its horrifying embrace.  Yet, by the end of the year, three-quarters of the world was involved in the worst bloodletting the globe had ever seen. Serbia is not that far away from Ukraine so it’s easy to see how just the right spark- like a strike on one of Ukraine’s nuclear power plants- could be the spark of the End Times.  Let us pray that someone dispatches Vladimir Putin and soon so we can avoid just such an outcome.  Chef James “Jimmy” Hall.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Cheap Trick next delivered a four-tune EP on June 02, 1980, the acclaimed “Found All the Parts.”  Once again, the band has the same quartet of Rick Nielsen (guitars, backing vocals), Robin Zander (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Tom Petersson (bass, backing vocals), and Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion).  Being an extended play much like a double-sided single with two tunes on either side, the band provides some awesome tunes.  First, we have a cover of the Beatles’ “Day Tripper” followed by “Can’t Hold On” followed by two more tracks, “Such a Good Girl” and “Take Me, I’m Yours.”  You can seek this one out at your favorite site for music or you can purchase the extended version of tomorrow’s offering as it has all four of these tunes added as bonus tracks.  Either way, the decision rests with you and your pocketbook.  Enjoy.

[i] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates. The album, “Rumours,” appeared on Tuesday, 18-January-2011 at our original blog.   We look forward to picking them back up and doing a Round No. 2 which will include the solo efforts of the band members, too.  We thank you.

[ii] Sadly, little Ms. Greta Thunberg is a perfect example of an indoctrinated leftist, frightened into believing that CLIMATE CHANGE is something caused by humans.  Any person who has ever taken a university-level geography class understands that the Sun is the number one driver of all things to do with climate and on every planet in the Solar System that has one, every satellite that has one.  The amount (or lack) of solar flares, sunspots, and the intensity or lessening of the solar winds understands that these are the driving forces of climate change.  We can combat pollution and maintain a pristine environment but we cannot control how hot or cool the summers are or vice versa what the winters are.  Stop scaring people you flipping left-wing climate activists!

  42. 2001 Sunday: President George W.

  46. 2007 Sunday: O.J. Simpson undergoes arrest in the alleged armed robbery of sports memorabilia collectors in Las Vegas.

We know that hydroxychloroquine is one of the best anti-malarial drugs in use on the African continent and in 2020, it’s interesting to note that a country such as Uganda that has long used this extremely low-cost drug the deaths in 2020 from COVID-19 are almost nonexistent. Elsewhere, in Burkina Faso, security guards launch a coup taking President Michel Kafando and other ranking government officials into custody.
  52. 2016 Friday: Democracy Now reports that Donald Trump continues to dis President Barack Hussein Obama by suggesting that the 44th president was not born in the United States. Folks, millions of Americans, and millions more around the planet do not believe Obama[v] was born in the U.S. so WTF? Meanwhile, following a campaign rally in North Carolina the previous day, Hillary Clinton minimizes her public appearances. What is wrong with this woman?
  53. 2017 Saturday: Tropical Storm Maria, which would batter the Caribbean as a powerful hurricane, formed in the Atlantic.

  56. 2020 Wednesday: Warned ahead of time that his book about his time in the Trump administration contained classified information, former National Security Advisor John Bolton finds himself- along with his publisher and support staff- finds himself under investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice. We told you so, John! Meanwhile, America’s insurance companies announce that this year’s ongoing ‘peaceful protests,’ aka rioting, looting, arson, rape, and murder- will be the costliest in U.S. history, claims coming in between $1-2 billion. Thank you, Democrats, thank you, Marxist-Socialist thugs. Elsewhere, pot-smoking New York City Mayor Bill Di Blasio- struggling to remain lucid- announces that HE and his mayoral staff of at least 500 workers will go on furlough for two weeks, beginning in October. Dude, you do nothing anyway but thanks for allowing the city to hold onto your $250,000 annual salary.
  57. 2020 Wednesday A: In Austin, Texas, two construction cranes collide into one another killing no one but injuring at least 22 people on the ground. Illegal aliens at the controls?

Rains are heavy, storm surges strong, and flooding rampant. Elsewhere, NFL ratings are in a nosedive, the opening week’s ratings coming in with a 20-percent or more drop in viewership. Every game save the New Orleans Saints-Tampa Bay Buccaneers was below normal. Don’t expect it to get any better anytime soon, the league’s owners MUST- we repeat, MUST- terminate the contract of Commissioner Roger Goodell and send this virtue-signaling POS packing and then must regain control of the players and enforce the rules. You remember ratings were DOWN in 2016 and were it not for Donald Trump, they would have continued tanking. This is your second chance, NFL team owners, and if you blow it this time, we expect America’s favorite sport will be as popular as midget mud wrestling. Don’t blow it. Speaking of football, the BIG 10 says it is going to return to playing games. Congratulations!
  58. 2020 Wednesday B: Senate Minority Leader and knuckle-dragger Sen. Chuck Schumer wants the head of Health and Human Services boss Alex Azar’s head over some bogus charge concerning the Xi Jinping Yellow Fever Bat Flu. Chuck- STFU. Meanwhile, Real Clear Politics polling average shows “Pro-China Joe” Biden with a lead of 49-percent to 44.7-percent over Trump. Wow. You go, Joe, you go! Next, along the west coast, out-of-control wildfires continue to burn acres and take lives yet in our northern neighbor, Canada, the wildfire season is way, way down thanks to proper forest management. Democrats do NOT think we won’t remember who is responsible for all the ills come November or in November 2022, November 2024 and onward. YOU will pay. Finally, last night, Tucker Carlson on Fox News Channel had Chinese Virus Crisis whistleblower, Dr. Li-Meng Yan on his program and she told the host that Beijing knew the facts concerning the Wuhan Flu and that they INTENTIONALLY ALLOWED IT TO ESCAPE. It is interesting to note that famed bastion of free speech, Twitter (yeah, right), silenced the doctor’s account on September 15. My, my, me!
  59. 2020 Wednesday C: The U.S. Senate Homeland Security Committee has issued subpoenas to former CIA director John Brennan, former National Security advisor James Clapper, and former FBI director James “The Saint” Comey. Good. Bring them in and bust their balls on live TV! Elsewhere, radio talk show king, Rush Limbaugh, reports today on his program that new polling shows that in strife-torn cities and towns across the country, voters favor Donald Trump by a 2-1 margin in November. Ooops! Not good for the Democrats!

Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 170,465 confirmed cases, 1,165 confirmed deaths, and 122,785 confirmed recoveries.
  61. 2020 Wednesday E: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 771,288 confirmed cases, 14,648 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 10,951 confirmed cases, 100 confirmed deaths, and 3,885 confirmed recoveries. Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 84,320 confirmed cases, 2,107 confirmed deaths, but like California, the palooka-faced governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries. Shame on these flipping Democrats. Let’s take a look at one more state, Idaho: 35,984 confirmed number of cases, 420 confirmed deaths, but no mention of the confirmed number of recoveries- thank you, Governor Brad Little for acting like a Democrat and remaining mum on this figure.
  62. 2020 Wednesday F: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals DOW Jones Industrial Average: 28,032.38, UP 36.78 points (+0.13%). Next, the NASDAQ: 11,050.47, DOWN 139.85 points (-1.25%).

  63. 2020 Wednesday G:  President Donald J. Trump- speaking from the White House today- said that he believes a vaccine will be available to combat the Wuhan Virus sometime in October. Earlier in the day, CDC Director Robert Redfield said that ‘masks are good’ and that ‘he was not as optimistic about a vaccine before late 2021.’  We shall see. However, Dr. Scott Atlas says 100 million doses should be available by the end of 2020. Elsewhere, “Pro-China Joe” Biden says his legal advisors have told him that he could probably issue a nationwide mask mandate via executive order. Joe: NOT enough prisons to hold everyone who will not obey the bull crap order. Better to make hydroxychloroquine, aka Plaquenil, available to ALL Americans.
  64. 2020 Wednesday H: Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of Justice charges five Chi-Com hackers with attempting to hack into more than 100 sites including social media and government. Currently, law enforcement is tracking these scalawags down. Next, President Trump reverses himself from an earlier stance and says that limited briefings on U.S. elections security will be provided to key members of Congress. As everyone knows, the Chi-Coms, the Russkies, the Iranians, the Cubans, the North Koreans, the Venezuelans, everyone with an ax to grind against the U.S. is going to attempt changing U.S. election results in November as they always do. When Barack Hussein Obama was president, he said influencing an election one way or another was nearly impossible so why would things be any different now?
  65. 2021 Thursday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 227,764,447 confirmed cases, +614,296, 4,681,587 confirmed deaths, +10,187 and 204,406,238 confirmed recoveries, +579,782.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 368,442 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 35,636 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xiii]        
  70. 2021 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have dropped to $4.390 per gallon, $3.096 in Florida, $4.073 in Hawaii, and $3.872 in Washington state. [xiv]    Let us look at one other Georgia: $2.977.  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- Germany: $6.872 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,768,967,941,690 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xvi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Brazil, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Switzerland with $256 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  71. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 175 since Joe Biden’s earpiece appointed “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be ‘border czar’ and Day No. 82 since her sole visit to the region.  Next, here are stats from One America News for the border calamity.  We begin with the Cost for just this day of caring for the denizens of the Third World: $522,488,704.  Imagine what that money could do for the homeless, yet it’s going to ILLEGAL ALIENS.  Next, here is the cost for this year of caring for this human fecal matter: $283,262,287,872.  Incredible, absolutely incredible.  Next, here is the estimate for the numbers of illegal alien trash that has swept across the U.S.-Mexico border this year: 2,903,211.  Wow.  Finally, here is the CONSERVATIVE (LOW) estimate of border-jumpers living within the country now: 36,903,212.  Note- since 2009, we have placed the actual number back then at around 35-50 million whereas now, we believe the number is closer to 85-110 million. (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  72. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– The Department of Homeland Security watchdog says that the ‘failure to screen illegal aliens along the border for COVID-19- and other diseases- is putting employees and American towns and cities at risk.’  Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says that the Biden-Harris regime are responsible for the 317-percent increase on illegal alien garbage pouring across the southern border.  Meanwhile, in Texas, 123 landowners along the border in Texas are allowing the state to erect border fencing on their properties.  Good for you.  In other border news, every day, 4,000 or more illegal aliens show up under a bridge between Texas and Mexico.  Currently, there are 8,000-10,000 illegals waiting beneath the bridge for the Border Patrol to show up and process them.  Fox News has been flying drones around the bridge to show the environmental disaster of all the urine, fecal matter, and disease swirling around beneath the bridge.  That is, until late today when the FAA banned Fox from flying any more flights in the area.
  73. 2021 Thursday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Following yesterday’s announcement by the Biden regime and leftist leaders in Australia- Prime Minister Scott Morrison- and in England- Prime Minister Boris “BoJo” Johnson regarding the three countries’ new alliance with which to give Australia nuclear-powered submarines, France became angry as they were not consulted seeing as how they are also involved in the Indo-Pacific Region.  Moron U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken is now trying to pacify and coddle hurt Gallic feelings.  We thought the Biden regime was supposed to be ‘grownups in the room’ and that everything was ‘going to get back to normal’ with this Chi-Com stooge in the White House.  Finally, Barack Hussein Obama gives Justin Trudeau his endorsement in Canada’s upcoming election.  Loser.
  74. 2021 Thursday I: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News-(1) Pfizer $44.47 (2) AstraZeneca $56.60 (3) Johnson & Johnson $165.22 (4) BioNTech $372.65 (5) Moderna $440.65.

  78. 2021 Thursday M: Joe Biden News I– As various state governments, companies, and businesses continue fighting the unconstitutional COVID-19 vaccine mandates, Joe Biden is bringing in representatives from Disney and Microsoft so the old fogey can try to break their balls on the topic of vaccine mandates.  Ronna McDaniel, chair of the Republican National Committee says, “NO” to vaccine mandates.   Rep. James Comer, R-KY 1st congressional district, demands to see ‘evidence’ from Joe Biden’s inconclusive Chi-Com Virus origins report (seeing as how “Pro-China Joe” is trying to protect his paymasters in Beijing).  Next, following tweets saying ‘think for yourself’ from entertainer Nikki Minaj, the White House is dangling a phone call with her so they can twist her arm into urging her 22 million followers to rush out and get these bogus vaccines.   Don’t take it, Ms. Minaj.
  79. 2021 Thursday N: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– The blows continue hammering the fraudulent Joe Biden regime as first, 24 GOP state attorneys general threaten the regime with lawsuits over its mandate forcing Americans within their states to get inoculated for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu while leaving illegal aliens to do whatever the heck they want.  Meanwhile, Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, told the Biden regime today, “See you in court” over the mandate.  As if that is not bad enough, Joe Biden laid out today a plan with which to tax the rich.  He claims the wealthy do not pay ‘their fair share’ when in fact, the top one percent pays 50-percent of all taxes while the bottom 50-percent and less pay little to no taxes other than sales taxes and SALT.  Most of them get their taxes back via tax refunds so this bull crap that the upper classes pay no taxes is little more than crap.  Meanwhile, in another blow to feeble Joe Biden, Senator Kyrsten Sinema, D-AZ, continues- with Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA- to hold out against this bogus $3.5 trillion ‘infrastructure bill.’  Meanwhile, racist Virginia Governor Ralph “KKK” Northam says he ’supports Joe Biden’s tax hikes.’
  80. 2021 Thursday O: Joe Biden Regime News I– The U.S. government is moving to block the agreed-upon Purdue Pharma settlement resulting from their hand in the ongoing opioid crisis.  Next, the Biden regime is praising the Fox News Channel for having nearly 90-percent of its employees vaccinated for the Kung Flu and for ordering weekly testing of ALL personnel.  What a load of crap, FNC has become a left-wing outlet.  How sad.  Finally, polls are showing that Joe Biden is facing an uphill battle to win a second term in 2024.  (Note- how many believe this man is going to make it to 2024?  What is with all these coughing fits of his?)
  81. 2021 Thursday P: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– We expect that Nancy Pelosi’s hirelings, i.e., FBI informants, paid Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs, and other sundry garbage are going to ignite another FALSE FLAG OPERATION on Saturday at the Justice for the January 6, 2021, political prisoners languishing in the D.C. gulags.  The TSA is already tightening security at regional airports in case Marxists begin causing trouble.  This sounds like yet another attempt from start to finish to tarnish Trump supporters by setting off yet another riot.  This will allow House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi to put up Fort Pelosi once again and to keep it standing.  Meanwhile, Aaron Babbitt, widower of Ashli Babbitt, is urging there be NO violence at Saturdays “Justice for J6 Rally” at the U.S. Capitol.  Mr. Babbitt, NO Trump supporter, or defender of Americans’ civil rights will cause violence but all the stooges on the pay of the FBI and/or Speaker “Mumbles” Pelosi most assuredly are going to cause violence.  Finally, in other fascinating news related to the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021, while Roger Stone was giving a radio interview, process servers showed up and served him live on air with papers related to the events of that day.  Wow.
  82. 2021 Thursday Q: Political News I– Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, told Newsmax that IF what is being alleged about Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark A. (Asshole) Milley is true, the scumbag could have triggered a nuclear war between the United States and communist China.  Chef Lilah Paulikovich of the AICPENDBLOG.COM said on her Twitter page a few days ago that Gen. Milley should be court martialed, stripped of rank, led up the 13 steps to the gallows, have the black bag placed over his head, the noose tightened around his neck, and then have the trapdoor beneath his feet dropped open.  He should also be fed to the crows. 
  83. 2021 Thursday R: Political News II– Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-NY 1st congressional district, says that disgraced traitor General Mark A. (Asshole) Milley violated the chain of command via circumventing it in his communicating with the Chi-Coms.  Rep. Tim Burchett, R-TN 1st congressional district, says that ‘General Milley has clearly violated the Logan Act’ and should undergo prosecution for it.  Rep. Chris Stewart, R-UT 2nd congressional district, says that ‘it’s stunning how General Milley bypassed civilian leaders’ including the President and the then-Acting U.S. Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller, the latter of whom said he ‘did NOT okay the chairman’s calls to his Chi-Com ‘opposite.’  Finally, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says the ‘only winner in Joe Biden’s tax increases is the communist Chinese.’
  84. 2021 Thursday S: Federal and State Court News– A federal court has blocked the expulsion of illegal alien families under a Trump-era order.   Another judge nixes the Department of Justice bid to quash the Lone Star State’s new ban on abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected.  Hearings are set for October 1.
  85. 2021 Thursday T: Sports News I– Tonight’s Thursday Night Football game features the New York Giants (0-1) and the Washington Football Team aka the Redskins.  The Redskins won 30-29 in the last couple of seconds.  Wow.
  86. 2022 Friday:  Observation of the Day– Watching the disaster befall Vladimir Putin in Ukraine must be akin to how our parents and grandparents viewed hapless Il Duce Benito Mussolini’s disasters in Albania, Greece, and in North Africa during World War II- a total Schmeckel to be sure, all schlong and NO balls.  His main ally- Xi Jinping of communist China must be holding his feverish, sweaty head in both hands much like Der Fuhrer Adolf Hitler did when he realized that he had to either ‘fish’ or ‘cut bait.’  In Hitler’s case, he could or would not ‘cut bait’ and thus rushed to the side of his beleaguered ally much to his eventual destruction.  Putin is NO Josef Stalin- perhaps he would like to be- but he’s demonstrated that he is a total flop at motivating his soldiers to fight an unpopular war on foreign soil which is the BIG DISTINCTION in this little melodrama.  The Russian people have no desire to fight a foreign war even in a country next door and thus as the Ukrainians continue kicking butts and taking numbers, Russian soldiers are throwing down their arms and raising their hands in surrender- “NO MÁS” as boxer Roberto “Manos de Piedra” Duran proclaimed when “Sugar Ray” Leonard was kicking his ass.  So many Russian soldiers are surrendering that Putin cannot eradicate all of their families so the only question remaining is WHEN will one of his adjutants stride up behind him and cap him?  If it has not happened by the time this post goes live, it should and hopefully will soon as this loser deserves NOTHING less.  Besides, where is the United Nations?  I know my colleagues have raised this question and so far, they are nowhere to be seen.  Time to boot the U.N. out of the U.S. now.  Let me know YOUR opinion- Chef James “Jimmy” Hall.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from Cheap Trick was their most successful to date: “Dream Police” (September 21, 1979).  Although some critics panned the album, the LP was smoking hot with the underlying theme of jackbooted thugs penetrating the dreams of sleepers and monitoring them.  Once again, the band has the same quartet of Rick Nielsen (guitars, backing vocals), Robin Zander (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Tom Petersson (bass, backing vocals), Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion), as well as two accompanying musicians: Jai Winding (pianos, organs, synthesizers, keyboards), and Steve Lukather (guitar on one song).  The tunes rock from the opening track to the very last notes.  The songs include (1) “Dream Police” (2) “Way of the World” (3) “The House is Rocking (with Domestic Problems),” the astounding (4) “Gonna Raise Hell” (5)  “I’ll Be With You Tonight,” the absolutely lovely (6) “Voices” to (7)  “Writing on the Wall” (8) “I Know What I Want” to (9) “Need Your Love.”  This is an album every fan of the band and of rock-and-roll must own.  We love it, you will love it, everyone will love it.  Seek it out now- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

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

[ii] At some point when we return to presenting the music of American bands, we will promote that of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers as well as of Tom Petty himself.  We hope you will await word as to when we do.  We thank you.

[iii] We hope to promote the music of this famous British band, T-Rex, sometime within the next five years.

[iv] 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.

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

[vi] We promoted the music of not only Fairport Convention beginning on Monday, October 04, 2021, through Sunday, February 27, 2022, but also that of Richard and Linda Thompson, Fotheringay, Sandy Denny, Simon Nichol, and almost anyone else connected to this legendary band.

  61. 2019 Sunday: Why Marvel would be promoting homosexuality is beyond us, but the mayor of Rio De Janeiro banned a comic book in which two men were swapping spit.  However, the Brazilian Supreme Court overturned the mayor’s ban.  Sad.  Elsewhere, tensions increase between India and Pakistan as Prime Minister Modi continues pushing his ‘make Hinduism great again’ agenda, what they call Hindutva.
  62. 2020 Tuesday: President Donald J. Trump criticized the top Pentagon brass today when he said that they ‘engage in useless wars in order to boost defense contractors’ profits.’  This is true and has been true since President Dwight D. Eisenhower, Republican, warned the country about the ‘military-industrial complex,’ meaning there is loads of money for everyone involved in procuring and fulfilling defense contracts.  Military profiteers are the most shameful, disgusting people because they have no problem sending your loved ones to wage wars we never seem to win anymore.  Hence, money continues flowing around the clock.  God bless you, President Trump.  Speaking of President Trump, he is visiting Florida and North Carolina today while “Pro-China Joe Biden” is conducting a remote town hall somewhere.  Speaking of both Trump and Biden, a poll conducted by USA Today and Suffolk University says that ‘people expect that Trump will crush Biden in their debates by a 47-to-41 percent margin.’  Friends, it is bigger than that, people just don’t want to answer these polls.
  63. 2020 Tuesday A: Fascinatingly, Democrats and anti-Trumpers are beginning to recoil from Jeffrey Goldberg’s article in the once-staid magazine, The Atlantic, a story the magazine published on September 03, 2020.  Mr. Goldberg- quoting the usual suspects- anonymous sources- claimed he was told (and to her discredit, Jennifer Griffin of Fox News Channel backed him up) that in 2018 on a visit to France to visit U.S. World War I military cemeteries, President Trump supposedly called the fallen ‘losers’ and ‘suckers’ for having served and worse, for having died.  Both Goldberg and his magazine got about three solid days of Trump-bashing but now, people are pulling back from it because NO has the balls to step forward (where are you, Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, you pansy) and anyone who once supported the claims are quickly withdrawing from the claims in fear of being made liars- which they are.  President Trump may have slandered former Sen. John McCain, but McCain was an anti-Trumper from the start and the man who originally helped Hillary produce the “Trump-Russia Collusion” bogus theory.  We think McCain was a POS, too and believe that Mr. Goldberg, like most liberal ‘news media’ (aka Fake News) is full of crap, stinking, festering crap and U.S. military personnel know it.
  64. 2020 Tuesday B: We learn that over the Labor Day weekend in Chicago, 53 people were shot, 10 killed, including an 8-year-old girl.  Elsewhere, in New York City, at least 10 people were shot, including a six-year-old child who had both legs shattered when an errant drive-by fusillade of lead ripped through them.   Elected Democrats hem and haw over the numbers of deaths via gun violence and do everything possible to blame President Donald J. Trump for the crimes in THEIR locales.  Portland, Oregon, saw more violence over the Labor Day weekend and people are begging for it to stop yet Democratic leaders lack the balls to do something about it.  Time to bring in ex-Black Water Mercs and have them take out the scumbags, do what the Columbian people did when they finally could stand drug lord Pablo Escobar’s crimes any longer.  Fight fire with worse fire.
  65. 2020 Tuesday C: Rochester, N.Y., Police Chief La’Ron Singletary announces that he and his entire command structure are resigning over events surrounding the recent death of black PCP arrestee Daniel Prude who died in custody following a spit hood placed over his head approximately one week before his death.  Elsewhere, another black police chief- this one in Dallas- puts in her resignation papers.  Reneé Hall handed in her walking papers, effective November 2020.  Elsewhere, in Washington, D.C., the Pelosi Mob continues fighting the targeted COVID-19 bill put forth by the Republicans.  Don’t worry, Madam Speaker, WE KNOW who is responsible for NO money going to those who need it, and we won’t forget.
  66. 2020 Tuesday D: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 27,392,203 confirmed cases, UP by 191,260 cases, 897,713 confirmed deaths, UP by 7,873 deaths, and 18,337,409 confirmed recoveries, UP by 217,307 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 6,411,392 confirmed cases, UP by 16,259 new cases, 192,451 confirmed deaths, UP by 405 new deaths, and 3,450,818 confirmed recoveries, UP by 20,996 new recoveries.  We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.  It is also clear that misreporting the news has Americans believing at least 30 million Americans- OR MORE- have died from Xi Jinping’s Bat Flu which is not true which was said a week ago, so it shows misinformation is doing its job among the gullible and ill-informed citizenry.
  67. 2020 Tuesday E: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 742,833 confirmed cases, 13,764 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 9,957 confirmed cases, 86 confirmed deaths, and 3,028 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 80,623 confirmed cases, 2,044 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 444,751 confirmed number of cases, 32,971  confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.   The governor of New York, the drooling moron Andrew Cuomo now is trying to blame President Donald J. Trump for all the deaths when he is the one who sent Bat Flu-infected people into rest homes where the most vulnerable people are, uh, we mean, were.
  68. 2020 Tuesday F: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,500.89, DOWN 632.42 points (-2.25%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 10,847.69, DOWN 465.44 points (-4.11%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,331.84, DOWN 95.12 points (-2.78%).  The price of GOLD is $1,939.10 per troy oz., -4.10 (-0.21%) while the price of SILVER is $26.80 per troy ounce, -0.191 (-0.71%).  The price of PLATINUM is $902.00 per troy oz, -8.30 (-0.91%) while the price of COPPER is $3.01 per pound, -0.0155 (-0.51%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,273.50 per troy oz., -10.50 (-0.4%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $36.61 per barrel, -0.15 (-0.41%).  Today, COFFEE is $131.65 per metric ton, -1.10 (-0.83).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.84 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.85 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency.

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

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

  93. 2021 Wednesday X: Friends, please stick around and we’ll discover together whatever the hell the Democrats are doing to rape our nation this day.  There is hope, however, my friends, when a ‘president’ loses college-aged students who chant “F**k Joe Biden, f**k Joe Biden, f**k Joe Biden,’ you know you are going down in flames and what is even better, is that everyone who supports the loser or who built the loser up is going down with the loser.  I cannot wait to see Nancy Pelosi booted out on her ass.  Woman to woman, YOU got to go, ‘Evil Nancy!’  Chef Goldie McNamara.
  94. 2022 Thursday: Friends, do not drink the Kool-Aid on ‘renewable energies’ and on electric vehicles, the infamous EVs.  California Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom, one of the all-time worst political hacks the world has ever seen, is begging and cajoling Californians NOT to use electricity between the hours of 4 PM to 9 PM and for sure do not plug in your electric car due to the strain on a faltering power grid.  Without fossil fuels and nuclear power, PG&E cannot supply the power necessary to run the nation’s most populous state in a ‘First World’ country.  By 2035, sales of gas-powered cars will no longer be permitted IF we fail to vote out as many Democrats as possible in November and beyond.  Besides, here is the scam of EVs: besides being costlier than the normal gas-powered vehicle, charging them is estimated to cost $100 per charge when one pulls up to a power station.  NO longer will they be ‘cheap or economical’ what with charging fees and battery replacement costs.  What the Democrats want is to end private ownership of vehicles within a decade, two at the most.  Lower income people will be forced into taking public transit due to the constraint of economics while the middle class will call in to have a self-driving, government-owned vehicle show up at their homes to take them on their errands.  Those who can afford it will be able to call in to central dispatch in one’s area and a self-driving vehicle will take you in private where you need to go.  Others with lesser means will be able to call a carpool heading in the same direction they are.  The government will thus be able to monitor where one goes, charge them a flat fee, a charging fee, and a mileage fee all of which it will deduct from one’s banking account via automatic debit as you go.  If one must travel a longer distance and want to use a private vehicle, it will be akin to the old ‘pony express,’ at the end of each battery charge, one will arrive at a government-run lot where the driver will pick up the next car for the next distance.  The government will debit one’s account every mile, every charge, and eventual destination.  In essence, NO one other than the wealthy and the government will own vehicles and theirs will most likely be gasoline-powered while everyone else must rely on EVs and a crumbling power grid.  Leftists will hail it as ‘progress’ and everyone else will label it loss of freedom, liberty, and independence.  What’s more, even though you do NOT own the car, you will still have to pay for automobile insurance.  This is New Age Communism in my book, rather like “Brave New World” by Aldous Huxley.  Let me know what you think- Chef James “JT” Tobiason.

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

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

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

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

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

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

243. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 31, 2022

As a Democrat, I understand the strategy we are using to win in November. I think the raid on Mar-a-Lago is to stir up the angst in Trump supporters. When the DOJ charges him in September- remember- you heard it here first, we are hoping that violent mobs of Trumpers will turn out in the streets, run amok, commit all manner of mayhem and violence to which we can then say, “LOOK AT THEM! INSURRECTIONISTS! REVOLUTIONARIES! WE MUST CRUSH THEM!”

Trump for the left-wing violence destroying America’s largest Democrat-controlled cities.  What a laugh.  Meanwhile, Steve Bannon, President Donald J. Trump’s former political advisor had his first day in court with three of his fellow sycophants and pled ‘not guilty’ to charges the quartet defrauded donors into providing money to help build the wall along our border with Mexico.  Elsewhere, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the case against former Trump National Security Advisor Michael Flynn cannot be dropped even though the U.S. Justice Department dropped the charges.  This was a nod to the whack-a-doodle judge on the case, Emmet Sullivan.

  67. 2020 Monday B: COVID-19 Statistics- here are the stats for the Aloha State: 8,339 confirmed cases, 63 confirmed deaths, and 2,520 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 74,320 confirmed cases, 1,905 confirmed deaths, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  NOTE: COVID-19 is now the third leading cause of death in the United States.  The estimated hit to U.S. tourism and travel industries as of today rests at $51.5 billion.  The Chi-Coms have much to make restitution.   
  68. 2020 Monday C: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 28,430.05, DOWN 223.82 points (-0.78%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,775.46, UP 79.82 points (+0.68%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,500.31, DOWN 7.70 points (-0.22%).  Currently, GOLD is at $1,973.90 per troy oz., DOWN -4.70 (-0.24%), SILVER is at $28.24 per troy oz., DOWN -0.202 (-0.71%), PLATINUM $937.90 per troy oz.

  69. 2020 Monday D: Today, history occurred as El Al Flight 971 lifted off from Jerusalem and three-and-a-half hours later touched down in the United Arab Emirates, the first flight ever to do so.  The aircraft carried loads of dignitaries and the underside of the jetliner bristled with anti-missile defenses.  This is a momentous day for the entire world although the Palestinians continue running amok in the Gaza Strip, trying to initiate yet another war with the world’s sole Jewish state.  Shame on them.
  70. 2021 Tuesday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 218,540,994 confirmed cases, +674,190, 4,533,609 confirmed deaths, +10,669 and 195,365,126 confirmed recoveries, +652,872.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 40,114,099 confirmed cases, UP 168,668 from yesterday’s reporting, 657,910 confirmed deaths, UP 1,533, [xii] and 31,020,612 confirmed recoveries, UP 80,403.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [xiii]   
  71. 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 339,222 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 64,886 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  72. 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: 4,366,577 confirmed cases, 65,885 confirmed deaths, and 2,284,613 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 3,295,993 confirmed cases, 44,561 confirmed deaths, and 2,342,929 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 63,502 confirmed cases, 589 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 565,013 confirmed cases, 6,643 confirmed deaths, and 246,247 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., District of Columbia: they have 55,431 confirmed cases, 1,160 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. [xiv]   That’s Mayor Muriel “Bow-wow” Bowser for you- nothing more than a political hack.
  73. 2021 Tuesday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 1,066,352 confirmed cases, 7,043 confirmed deaths, and 975,767 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other country- Antigua and Barbuda, 197th country on the list: 1,715 cases of the virus, 34 confirmed deaths and 1,348 confirmed recoveries. [xv]     
  74. 2021 Tuesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,360.73, DOWN 39.11 points (-0.11%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 15,259.24, DOWN 6.66 points (-0.044%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,522.68, DOWN 6.11 points (-0.13%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $69.08 per barrel, +0.57 (+0.83%).  The price of GOLD is $1,816.10 per troy oz., -2.10 (-0.10%) while the price of SILVER is $23.85 per troy ounce, -0.11 (-0.46%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,008.00 per troy oz, -6.20 (-0.61%) while the price of COPPER is $4.33 per pound, -0.04 -0.99%).

[xix]        
  75. 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 $4.398 per gallon, $2.983 in Florida, $4.073 in Hawaii, and $3.898 in Washington state. [xx]    Let us look at one other location- Wisconsin: $2.994.  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- Seychelles: $5.950 per U.S. Gallon.[xxi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,707,520,165,015 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after 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 top position.
  76. 2021 Tuesday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– Following on the heels of the last flight of Americans out of Hamid Karzai International Airport today, the Taliban moved in quickly upon our heels dressed in U.S. camo and using U.S. weapons.  We have left behind perhaps 15,000-20,000 Americans while the bogus regime inhabiting the White House claims the numbers are closer to 100 to 200.  Bulls**t.  Pentagon spokesperson Admiral John Kirby says the U.S. ‘will use leverage to bring trapped Americans home.’  We also left behind all of our military dogs to suffer horrendous fates at the hands of the barbarous Mohammedans who also are going to door to door executing anyone they deem to be enemies or threats to their criminal regime.   What is becoming clearer by the moment is that even though the war is ‘now over,’ Joe Biden’s Afghan crisis is only just beginning.  Take for example, new video showing the Taliban escorting- openly- Osama bin Laden’s former security chief, Dr. Amin al-Haq, an al-Qaida thug.  And the Biden regime says there is NO al-Qaida in the Afghan boonies.  Finally, new reports suggest that during a phone call in June, neither slobbering Joe Biden or Afghan President Ashraf Ghani anticipated the sudden collapse of the country.
  77. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Friends, with the usurper regime in the White House, everything is going to hell.  Anyhow, today is Day No. 160 for ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the debacle on the southern border and Day No. 67 since her sole visit to th southern border.  What a loser.  Ah, well, the Cost this Day of caring for the tidal wave of illegal aliens is $521,296,416.  Next, the cost of caring for this tsunami of Third World flesh is $265,726,853,120.  As for the numbers of illegal alien vermin who have crossed the southern border this year, here is the appalling figure for the numbers who managed to cross into the United States: 2,723,487.  Finally, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate for the numbers of illegal aliens sucking away at the American taxpayers’ teat: 36,723,488.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  Note- since the inception of this blog back in 2009, we believed the numbers of illegal alien vermin in the U.S. to have been between 35-50 million whereas now- 12 years later- we believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million.  Round them up and deport all of them.  NOW.
  78. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Ireland announces that it will be dropping almost all COVID-19 restrictions in their country by October all the while Australia continues tightening the screws on its citizens.  The military goes door to door to check on whether its citizens are cowering behind their doors as well as checks on citizens’ individual QR codes to make sure they are following the government’s dictates.  WTF?  In another country seemingly freer than Australia, Vladimir Putin is approving special payments to military and law enforcement personnel ahead of upcoming elections (just like U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi is doing for federal employees in America).
  79. 2021 Tuesday I: Foreign News-Overseas News II– In other foreign and overseas news, the People’s Republic of China has restricted young people under the age of 18 no more than 3 hours per week playing video games.  Beijing also shut down the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Chengdu, probably because it is pushing the LGBTQIA+ agenda which should get any organization closed down.
  80. 2021 Tuesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– In an effort to destroy “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis, R-FL, a ‘report’ suggests that death rates in the Sunshine State due to COVID-19 somehow are artificially low.  Elsewhere, another report says that Alaska and Utah have low COVID-19-related deaths.   Meanwhile, an Axios/Ipsos poll says that ‘it appears vaccine hesitancy is waning’ around the nation.  Uh, okay.  NO, no it’s not.
  81. 2021 Tuesday K: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis says that he is ‘confident a judge will rule in favor of his ban on the required wearing of masks in Florida’s school systems.  Elsewhere, Senator Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren, DS-MA, has been accused of violating New Mexico’s mask mandate on a recent visit to the Cactus State.  Liberal hypocrisy?  No, it couldn’t be.  Meanwhile, the Manhattan D.A. charges 15 in a fake COVID-19 vaccine passport scheme.
  82. 2021 Tuesday L: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $46.07 (2) AstraZeneca $58.28 (3) Johnson & Johnson $173.13 (4) BioNTech $329.19 (5) Moderna $376.69.  Follow the money.  Politicians and the Deep State are invested BIG TIME in vaccine manufacturers.
  83. 2021 Tuesday M: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $84.76 (2) General Dynamics: $200.31 (3) Boeing: $219.50 (4) Lockheed Martin: $359.80 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $367.70.  Same as above, the Deep State and politicos are invested heavily in the dogs of war.
  84. 2021 Tuesday N: Joe Biden News I– Early this morning, we were promised that faux president Joe Biden would give a statement on the debacle in Afghanistan to the American people.  When he did finally show up, he was agitated and angrier than ever.  The White House must have gotten some of son Hunter’s crack and had old Joe smoke a few bowls before he walked glassy eyed to the microphones and lit into the American people.  (Note- Joe, STFU about your son, Beau Biden, he did NOT die in combat, he was not shot, he was not blown up, and he was not maimed; no, he died from brain cancer from being around too many burn-pits in-country.  You cannot relate with anyone who has lost a loved one in combat.  Enough!).  The old fool also praised the success of the ‘airlift’ and the ‘end of the forever war.’  Speaking of this man’s failure, the Flag Officers 4 America- more than 87-plus former U.S. military officers- sent a letter to “Taliban Joe” Biden demanding the resignations of U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and political hack Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark A. Milley over failing to advise Joe Biden of the disastrous consequences resulting from his baffling pull-out from Afghanistan.  (Note- Gen. Milley, being the POS that you are and an uneducated one, IF you ever wish someone to explain to you the truth behind the three-fifths clause, we would love to sit down and explain it to your stupid ass.  Also, you must pay heed as to what happens to ‘political generals,’ i.e., General Alfred Jodl and Field Marshal Wilhelm Keitel at the end of World War II).  
  85. 2021 Tuesday O: Joe Biden News II– The father of a U.S. Marine killed in last Thursday’s terror attack at HKIA- Mark Schmitz- said that when he met Joe Biden at Dover when the bodies of his son and 12 others arrived home on U.S. soil, Mr. Biden ‘bristled’ when told to learn the stories of the dead.  Joe went on about son, Beau, and said little to nothing to comfort the grieving families and instead looked at his watch to see when he could return to the White House basement to watch reruns of “Dragnet” and “Murder She Wrote.”   Joe also claims he is committed to getting ‘the last 100-200 Americans out of Afghanistan.’
  86. 2021 Tuesday P: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– Fox News had the balls to report today that during a press conference with FEMA regarding Hurricane Ida relief, when he called forward one of his senior advisers, former Rep. Cedric Richmond, the racist faux president referred to him as “BOY.”  Since Mr. Richmond happens to be black, one would think that the besotted old fool who claims to be president would have ignited a firestorm but oh, no, apparently not.  Here is what the senile codger said: “I’m here with my senior adviser and BOY who knows Louisiana very, very well, and New Orleans, Cedric Richmond.” [xxiii]
  87. : Joe Biden Regime News I– Ahead of a White House visit, the U.S. commits to $60 million in foreign aid to the Ukraine.  Next, U.S. State Department staffers are assailing Secretary Anthony Blinken over the need to terminate one of their own- Fritz Berggren who runs a website, bloodandfaith.com- where he blasts Jews, homos and trannys, and other left-wing riffraff.  Hey, staffers: stop sniveling.  You guys get away with all sorts of stuff so shut the hell up.  Elsewhere, Health and Human Services- HHS- says it’s going to open a division committed to combatting ‘climate change.’  Spare us the crap.
  88. 2021 Tuesday R: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– In other political news, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy says- regarding the bogus January 06, 2021, Capitol Hill Riots panel in the U.S. House of Representatives that is demanding BIG TECH to hand over all data related to the GOP and others who were there on that day- that ‘this is America and the people will remember’ if BIG TECH complies with the Democratic-Socialists’ requests. 
  89. 2021 Tuesday S: Political News I– Eric Trump told Newsmax today that the nation ‘demands a refund for the debacle in Afghanistan.’  We left billions of dollars in equipment there as well as billions of dollars more for the criminal regime currently inhabiting the country.   Next, Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, says that Afghanistan is a ‘jaw-dropping, abysmal failure.’  Amen.  Moving on, Rep. Ronny Jackson, R-TX 13th CD, says that ‘Americans are now fending for themselves’ in the so-called ‘graveyard of empires.’  Meanwhile, Rep. Mike Rogers, R-AL 3rd CD, puts most of the blame for the Afghan debacle atop the shoulders of ‘Taliban Joe’ Biden, National Security Adviser Jake “Wet Behind the Ears” Sullivan, and the increasingly pathetic, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Sell-Out” Blinken.  Finally, Rep. Brian Mast, R-FL 18th CD, says that ‘whenever the Biden regime sends Anthony Blinken to the microphone banks, it’s to LIE to the American people.’  Amen, Rep., amen.  Rep. Mast also has said that the ‘White House has doubled down on stupid with the Taliban.’  Finally, Rep. Jim Banks, R-IN 3rd CD, says the “U.S. is going to fund terrorism against itself.”
  90. 2021 Tuesday T: Political News II– Anger continues to grow across the United States at CRT in the schools- what WE call truthfully ‘Criminal Race Theory’ and what the leftist scumbags label ‘Critical Race Theory.’  This crap is as evil as is Marxism and Nazism and must be destroyed.  Anyone promoting this crap must be stripped of their job and sent into the hinterlands to become reeducated.
  91. 2021 Tuesday U: Economic News– Thanks to the COVID-19 crisis, U.S. home prices during the month of June soared to their highest point in years.  (Note- the reason for higher prices is the scarcity thanks to big banks and Chinese companies snapping up homes in mass.  Not good.
  92. 2021 Tuesday V: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– The murderer of Iowa college student Mollie Tibbetts- Cristhian Bahena Rivera- received a sentence of life in prison today as well as having to pay restitution for his barbaric crime.  Execute him.  Another condemned murderer set to die on September 8, 2021, via lethal injection in Texas- 37-year-old John Henry Ramirez- is suing to have the right to have his pastor lay hands on him as he undergoes execution.
  93. 2021 Tuesday W: Social Media News– Another mother who lost her son at HKIA last week saw Instagram shutter account over emotional posts she shared following the death of her child.  When blasted for doing it, Instagram said ‘they made a mistake and had NO clue as to how such an outrageous incident occurred.’  Sure, uh-huh.  F— you.
  94. 2021 Tuesday X: Weather News I– Following Hurricane Ida slamming the gulf coast, thousands in Louisiana are facing weeks- if not months- of NO electricity.  We recall that when Donald J. Trump was in the White House, he had everything ready and waiting to rush in and begin the process of restoring power as soon as the storms passed.  What the hell is up with the Biden regime?
  95. 2021 Tuesday Y: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1690 what with a $306 million jackpot on the line: 08, 14, 31, 58, 68, and Mega 15.  Out of 105,850 winning tickets, the highest winners were FIVE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $5,621.
  96. 2022 Wednesday: As a Democrat, I understand the strategy we are using to win in November.  I think the raid on Mar-a-Lago is to stir up the angst in Trump supporters.  When the DOJ charges him in September- remember- you heard it here first, we are hoping that violent mobs of Trumpers will turn out in the streets, run amok, commit all manner of mayhem and violence to which we can then say, “LOOK AT THEM!  INSURRECTIONISTS!  REVOLUTIONARIES!  WE MUST CRUSH THEM!”  It will allow the Biden White House to DECLARE MARTIAL LAW, LOCK DOWN THE ELECTION CYCLE, KEEP EVERYONE IN THEIR HOMES, AND FORCE THEM TO USE MAIL-IN BALLOTS which, we the Democratic Party OWN.  If everyone has to vote by mail, we are going to pull our irons out of the fire and save the election cycle.  IF we can’t get Trump voters to run amok, we will send our Antifa and BLM goons out into the streets, give them CSA and Nazi flags and have them run amok.  It’s a cinch. Trump will be indicted but will NEVER go to trial until October 2024 and we will win that election cycle, too.  Man, oh, man, are we smart.  This is the plan, it’s going to work, and Dems are going to WIN and WIN BIG.  Especially when our media spews the myth that the RED WAVE is dying, and the BLUE WAVE is going to crush EVERYONE.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0938 a 16” x 20” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Rancho Santa Margarita.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclee, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from the Beach Boys is one to be expected: “The Beach Boys with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra” (June 08, 2018).  There are 17 tunes here featuring Brian, Carl, and Dennis Wilson along with Mike Love, Bruce Johnston, Al Jardine, and David Marks.  Most every band that has survived- or whose record catalog has survived- has had remix albums with orchestras so why would the Beach Boys be any different?  While some criticize the album, others praise it which is what we do being the completists that we are.  Besides- if you’ve purchased everything else, why would you spurn this effort?  It does not cost that much so pick it up much like you would (or did) “Metamorphosis” or “Jamming with Edward” by the Rolling Stones.  We think you will enjoy but if not, perhaps your aging mother or father will.  After all, they are most likely Beach Boys fans.

[i] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates.  We thank you.

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

[iii] Shavers won the vacant Nevada state heavyweight title on September 28, 1971.  However, Earnie lost his two big-time title fights, the first to Muhammad Ali on September 29, 1977, via a 15-round unanimous decision.  He fought to win the WBA, WBC, and The Ring magazine heavyweight titles.  The second shot was against Larry Holmes, aka the Easton Assassin, on September 28, 1979.  Holmes held the WBC heavyweight title of the world.  Holmes beat Shavers via a TKO at the 2:00 minute mark of Round 11 in a scheduled 15-round heavyweight bout.  There would be no future shots at any of the belts.

[iv] We hope to begin promoting the music of Them and of Van Morrison at some point in the near future.  Please remain alert for the day when we do.

[v] We shared the music of the Flamin’ Groovies beginning on Thursday, 25-November-2010 through Sunday, 02-January-2011.  We hope you will check them out and enjoy.

[vi] We presented the music of the Flying Burrito Brothers beginning Sunday, 23-February-2014 and concluded our presentation on Thursday, 06-March-2014.

[vii] We hope to offer the music of Firefall sometime in 2026.  Please stay tuned.

[viii] We most definitely should have done Whitesnake back during the time we did the music of Deep Purple, Elf, Rainbow, Ian Gillan, Ian Gillan Band, Richie Blackmore, and the rest of that offering but we failed to do so.  However, when we get around to doing Poison, Mȍtley Crüe, Bon Jovi, and other of the HAIR bands sometime within the next 10 years.  As for the first grouping of bands, we shared the music of Deep Purple, Ian Gillan, Captain Beyond, Elf, and Rainbow beginning on Tuesday, 20-March-2018 and concluded this massive offering on Sunday, 14-October-2018.  Please seek out the music by all of these phenomenal bands.  All are fabulous.  The only problem, we did the lineup at the Google Blogger blog we had for 11 years and that cocksucker Sundar Pichai, a POS Pakistani jihadist shut us down.  He will get his when conservatism reclaims the nation in the greatest revival since the post-Civil War era.

[ix] We expect to present the music of the Jackson Five and Michael Jackson sometime in 2025-2026 so please stay tuned for future developments. 

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

[xi] More and more Americans now believe that President Barack Hussein Obama was the first phony president as it has become clearer that he was NOT born in the United States but in Kenya.  This would explain the actions of the Democrats back in 2009 when they began to go down the totalitarian roadway.  Look at them now.

  68. 2020 Thursday B: Various sports leagues are boycotting their schedules/playoff schedules as first the Milwaukee Bucks yesterday followed by other NBA teams, MLB teams, and today, NHL teams over the shooting of Jason Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin.  Look, we get it but the more you politicize your sports the less likely we are to continue watching your games which means the less money you will be able to earn in the future.  Speak out on YOUR own but when leagues begin going down this road, it spells trouble for your longevity.  Sorry.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Coast Guard offloads 30,000 pounds of narcotics in Miami worth about $228 million, intercepted and confiscated on the high seas.

[vii]

[viii]     
  76. 2021 Friday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,455.80, UP 242.68 points (+0.69%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 15,129.50, UP 183.69 points (+1.23%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,509.37, UP 39.37 points (+0.88%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $68.67 per barrel, -0.07 (-0.10%).  The price of GOLD is $1,820.50 per troy oz., +1.00 (+0.05%) while the price of SILVER is $24.03 per troy ounce, -0.03 (-0.13%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,006.60 per troy oz, +0.10 (+0.01%) while the price of COPPER is $4.32 per pound, 0.00 +0.05%).

[xii]        
  77. 2021 Friday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have dropped to $4.394 per gallon, $2.950 in Florida, $4.071 in Hawaii, and $3.896 in Washington state. [xiii]    Let us look at one other location- Texas: $2.791.  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- Czech Republic: $5.855 per U.S. Gallon.[xiv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,691,729,665,014 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Norway, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Thailand with $80 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  78. 2021 Friday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– Even though victims of the blast claim otherwise, the Pentagon now says that there was but one blast at the Kabul airport yesterday that claimed the lives of 12 U.S. Marines and one Navy corpsman along with at least 85 Afghan citizens.  (The Pentagon claims to have evacuated 12,500 in the last day at HKIA but have no clue as to whom they evacuated).  The U.S. is bracing for more terrorist attacks by ISIS-K in Kabul.  Now that the Taliban are back to running the show, Iran is resuming shipments of oil to the country.  Rep. Don Bacon, R-NE 2nd congressional district, said of yesterday’s twin blasts at HKIA that it’s the ‘worst national security debacle.’  Next, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says he wants an immediate House vote on delaying the withdrawal from Afghanistan.  Not sure we agree but we must get everyone out of that country.  Rep. Dan Bishop, R-NC 9th congressional district, says that Congress ‘should be in session during the Afghan crisis.’  (Good luck with that).
  79. 2021 Friday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I– A new U.S. intelligence report suggests that the Chi-Com leadership had NO clue as to what was going on at the Wuhan Institute of Virology was doing.  Bulls**t.
  80. 2021 Friday H: Health and Medical Alerts– In Japan, a batch of Moderna Chi-Vi vaccine shipments is discovered to be tainted with metal particles.  Meanwhile, as cases of the Delta variant continue to skyrocket, Joe Biden is hemorrhaging support among independent voters as he is among every other group.  A new poll says that most Americans believe the economy is worsening due to skyrocketing COVID-19 numbers.  The Chi-Coms continue to say that anyone who connects the Xi Jinping Bat Flu to them will suffer all kinds of horrible repercussions.  Look, Chi-Coms, you may be going to control the world, but you don’t control it now.  -Chef Fritz.  Elsewhere, more medical workers are flowing into Texas to help with the spike in Chi-Vi cases down there.
  81. 2021 Friday I: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $46.60 (2) AstraZeneca $58.63 (3) Johnson & Johnson $172.93 (4) BioNTech $358.48 (5) Moderna $382.22.
  82. 2021 Friday J: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $85.40 (2) General Dynamics: $199.72 (3) Boeing: $221.66 (4) Lockheed Martin: $361.99 (5) Northrup-Grumman: $364.99.
  83. 2021 Friday K: Joe Biden Regime News I– A mother is suing the Transportation Security Administration- the TSA- because TSA goons strip-searched her tranny kid.   Next, now that the U.S. Supreme Court has struck down by a vote of 6-3 Joe Biden’s evictions moratorium, the question is would the Biden regime honor it?  Next, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, is demanding that slobbering Joe Biden recognize the opposition in Afghanistan and NOT- we repeat- the Taliban.  (Note- the Antitrump is going to do the exact opposite of whatever President Donald J. Trump and common sense would do).  Meanwhile, POS Rep. Adam “Kiss Ass” Kinzinger, RINO-IL 16th congressional district, says there will be ‘NO impeachment of Joe Biden resulting from the regime’s bad decisions.’  (Note- to Ronna McDaniel, chairperson of the RNC, you can understand WHY millions of Republicans will no longer donate to the organization because of all the RATS within the party.  Clean out the rats and watch the money flow, don’t and watch it go).
  84. 2021 Friday L: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– Aaron Babbitt, widower of Ashli Babbitt murdered by Capitol Hill Police Department Lt. Michael Byrd says that ‘D.C. and the media ran cover’ for this POS scumbag who shot an unarmed woman.  (Note- most of us believe that since Lt. Byrd is flawed from having two incidences of leaving his loaded service firearm in public places, Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi ordered that ‘someone had to die’ during the riots.  It is as if a certain degree of violence had to occur so it could be spun to the advantage of the Democrats.  Shame on them).  Meanwhile, District of Columbia officials are bracing for the 20th anniversary of September 11, 2001, terror attacks as well as a protest in support of the brave souls being held in the D.C. slammer for having been on Capitol Hill on January 06, 2021.
  85. 2021 Friday M: Political News I– As Democratic-Socialists continue saying ignorant things (Sandy “The Fly” Cortez ranks towards the top), U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer says, ‘it’s not at all inappropriate for politics to affect his retirement decision.’  The socialists want him to step down so they can place some loony tunes crackpot loser onto the nation’s high court.  We hope he stays.  Next, a new Rasmussen Reports poll says that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci’s popularity continues to fall which we believe is because of all the lying in which, he has engaged.  He must be careful, look at what happened to ex-Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov.  Like Daedalus and his son, Icarus, Icarus flew too close to the Sun and went down like a stone.  It is important for one to know their place in the world.  Speaking of Cuomo, Politico reports that the disgraced Empire State former chief executive is ‘plotting revenge’ on new Empire State Governor Kathy Hochul.  Why?  She didn’t bring you down, Mr. Cuomo, you brought yourself down, dimwit.
  86. 2021 Friday N: How bad can things continue getting?  I hate to say it, I think we are on the cusp of disaster.  Why the Chi-Coms, the Russians, the Iranians, the North Koreans, even the Cubans and the Venezuelans and every Third World terrorist group are not moving against us this very minute is mind-boggling.  We have a feeble president, one who clasps his head in his hands and mumbles, stumbles, rumbles around are not only humiliating, but it’s also damned well dangerous.  PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP, WE NEED YOU BACK IN THE WHITE HOUSE NOW.  Chef Fritz Schlependrecht.
  87. 2022 Saturday:  I don’t know about you, but I am still awaiting Chief Justice John Roberts to release the report on the leaker of the opinion written by Associate Justice Samuel Alito that overturned the vile Roe v. Wade.  Many seemingly have forgotten he promised to do this.  Others suspect he will never do it whereas we here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM have come to believe that Chief Justice Roberts is the leaker.  For more than a decade now, conservatives have been suspicious of the ‘conservatism’ of Justice Roberts because he seems to be more in the tank for the Democrats and the liberals- especially since President Donald J. Trump changed the face of the court with three right-leaning justices- because he believes in some sort of equilibrium so long as it leans left.  He is the one, after all, who prevented the deeply flawed Obamacare from falling onto the scrap heap of history just as he has saved other leftist laws.  I suspect that he is the sole leaker of the decision ending Roe because he is beholden to the LEFT and always has been.  All one need do is to look at the president who appointed him: George W. Bush.  Boy, do we have buyer’s remorse on that one.  Let me know what you think- Chef Goldie McNamara.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0934 a 20” x 24” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Verbena Sundown.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclees, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

After 36 years, Beach Boys vocalist, Mike Love, returned with his second solo album: “Unleash the Love,” put out on November 17, 2017.  Mike Love had been compiling songs for more than three decades, having a musical vision contained within his mind but requiring an army of musicians to make the dream materialize.  Eventually, he brought in loads of musicians and over the course of the sessions released a quality solo album.  He included a disc featuring re-records of earlier Beach Boys songs so as to keep the money flowing from updated copyrights which is cool.  Performers such as Eric Burdon have done the same thing only he unwittingly lost control of his music.  Mr. Love has not.  We hope you will seek this album out at your favorite site for the best in rock music- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

232. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, AUGUST 20, 2022

It is clear that Senate Minority ‘Leader’ “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell really does not want to win the Senate back if these are to be his new senators because he knows that IF they are, he most likely won’t be re-elected ‘majority leader.’ He is, after all, one of the worst leaders the GOP has ever had much like John Boehner and Paul Ryan were losers in the House.

Trump’s bid to block the subpoena launched by Trump-hater District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. of New York County.  This loser has been unfairly pursuing Donald Trump since he assumed office.  Speaking of New York, New York City is investigating Mayor Bill Di Blasio’s wife for having a lavish 14-person staff and for spending millions of the taxpayers’ dollars to do God knows what.  We will see where this goes, too.
  60. 2020 Thursday A: In Grand Prairie, Texas, the plastic plant that ignited yesterday continues burning today.  Firefighters believe it will require several more days for it to subside.  Halfway around the world, North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un delegates more power to his lovely sister, Kim Yo-Jong which makes her his de facto number two.  Many people question as to when she will become the NUMBER ONE- if she is not already and the guy many believe to be Kim turns out to be a doppelganger.  We are keeping an eye on this one, too.

Tammy Duckworth, D-IL, and Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, and then- as far as we know- “Pro-China Joe” Biden will give his somnambulant speech.  Hopefully, he will not get up there and blow it by going blank with drool spilling off his chin.  Oh, a feeling of exhilaration fills the hearts of the Democratic-Socialists with their pick- don’t you know the American people are ‘going to have to run to keep up with Mr. Biden’ if he somehow steals the November Election?

[xvii]    Let us look at one other location- Oklahoma: $2.889.  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- Slovenia: $5.560 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,664,979,325,196 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xix]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after India, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Singapore with $168 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.  
  72. 2021 Friday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– As the Biden pullout of Afghanistan continues down its disastrous path, new reports say that the Taliban is going door to door searching for Christians.  They will undergo beheading.   Meanwhile, Rep. Brian Mast, R-FL 18th congressional district, says that Afghanistan is becoming the new ‘jihadist Club Med.’ Next, new reports suggest that senile Joe Biden ignored calls from British Prime Minister Boris Johnson for ’36 hours’ so the allies could get their people out of the country in an orderly manner rather than the mess the world now sees.  Elsewhere, the United Arab Emirates agrees to host 5,000 Afghan refugees until the United States can bring them into the country.  Next, Senator Roger Marshall, R-KS, says ‘blame politics, not U.S. intel for the snafu in Afghanistan.’  Add to that the fact the House GOP is demanding to know ‘how many American weapons were left in Afghanistan for the Taliban to capture.’
  73. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Friends, as much as it pains us to report on failures every day, when it comes to the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, we feel we must.  Today is Day No. 149 since the senile Oval Office occupant appointed her to defend the U.S.-Mexico border from the overwhelming tsunami of illegal aliens as well as her 56th day since her sole visit to the slowest section of the border- the El Paso Sector.  What a loser.  Next, here are the numbers for the calamity befalling the country as reported by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just this day of caring for the illegal aliens: $582,096,799.  Next, here is the cost for the entire year of 2021 so far: $251,541,056,765.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal aliens who swarmed into the country this year: 2,675,879.  Finally, here is the money WASTED on the Third World cast-offs for this year: 36,667,877.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  U.S. District Court Judge Miranda Du in Reno, Nevada, ruled that a 1929 immigration law that makes crossing back into the U.S. after being deported a felony as somehow ‘unconstitutional.’  WTF!  
  74. 2021 Friday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrissey cites the fentanyl crisis in his lawsuit against the Biden regime demanding a return to the ‘Remain in Mexico Policy’ enacted by President Donald J. Trump.  Speaking of courts, a U.S. court denies the Biden regime’s request to forestall the return of the “Remain in Mexico Policy.”  Good.  Watch the Biden regime ignore it.
  75. 2021 Friday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– As the illegal alien invasion continues driving UP COVID-19 cases, Florida and Texas are opening antibody treatment centers to help sick residents in their states.  Elsewhere- in Louisiana- Attorney General Jeff Landry, GOP, says the New Orleans Saints Chi-Vi mandates are completely ‘unacceptable.’ In other Xi Jinping Bat Flu-related news, ex-National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, who advised President Donald J. Trump, is warning the Pentagon to prepare for the NEXT Chi-Com pandemic before it devastates the world even worse than the Bat Flu has.
  76. 2021 Friday J: Health and Medical Alerts– The Food and Drug Administration- the FDA- plans to give the Pfizer vaccine full approval this upcoming Monday.  Elsewhere, Customs and Border Enforcement seizes 3,000 phony COVID-19 vaccine passports in Alaska, all of them from communist China.  Here’s a good one: following Barack Hussein Obama’s birthday fest last week, 74 people on Martha’s Vineyard now have COVID-19- talk about a super-spreader event.
  77. 2021 Friday K: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow The Money) News– Here are today’s stock prices: (1) Pfizer $48.70 (2) AstraZeneca $59.39 (3) Johnson & Johnson $179.50 (4) BioNTech $348.68 (5) Moderna $382.98.  The reason we present this information is so that the readers can understand WHY the Democrats and their RINO supplicants continue pushing everyone to get the vaccinations and then the boosters and to continue wearing Chi-Com-manufactured masks, possibly forever.  The answer is because politicians invest in these surefire companies because vaccine manufacturers are ineligible to be sued no matter how devastating or onerous the reactions or long-term effects are.  What a money-making scheme.  Dems pick the contracts which get loads of federal tax dollars which them come back to the Dems via campaign donations.  Wow.
  78. 2021 Friday L: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow The Money 2) News– Here are today’s stock prices: (1) Raytheon: $84.10 (2) General Dynamics: $197.41 (3) Boeing: $212.72 (4) Lockheed Martin: $357.24 (5) Northrup-Grumman: $363.00.  What we said above applies to national defense stocks, too.  The military-industrial complex in action.
  79. 2021 Friday M: 2020 Election Audit– Republican senate leader in Pennsylvania blocks an audit of the 2020 Election.  Get these people out of office now.   Meanwhile, residents in Wisconsin are demanding an audit of their elections.  Elsewhere, residents of Arizona demand that the state’s Senate release all information on the 2020 Election audit.

Trump will be holding a massive America First rally.  Tens of thousands expected to attend.  Speaking of the commander-in-chief, President Trump accuses regime leader Joe Biden of ‘unforgivable dereliction of duty.’
  81. 2021 Friday O: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden was close to an hour late today to give a ‘briefing’ on the disaster in Afghanistan.  Next, a new report suggests that Joe Biden is praying for ‘limited fallout from the Afghan debacle.’  Another report suggests that mentally incompetent Joe Biden will be headed off to Delaware either tonight or tomorrow morning.  The Antitrump requires his “Manchurian Candidate”-style tune-up so he can appear somewhat coherent.  At his incoherent briefing today, regime leader Joe Biden said the “U.S. will maintain laser focus on terrorists.”  Sure, Joe, whatever you say.  Terrorists are pouring across the U.S.-Mexico border as we speak.  Speaking of Joe, he says there ‘is greater danger from ISIS than from the Taliban.’  Joe also promises to bring home every American in Afghanistan who wants to come home.  He just does not know who all is there seeking exit out of the country.
  82. 2021 Friday P: Joe Biden Regime News I– U.S. State Department spokesperson Ned Price continues taking heat over his lack of preparedness and lack of transparency at State Department briefings.  The dimwit can hardly answer what he had for breakfast much less speak coherently about the regime’s disaster in Afghanistan.  Like every other face of the regime, the loser is nothing more than an empty suit.  Next, the U.S. Department of Justice is seeking to overturn the conviction of Taliban traitor Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl so they can clear him of all charges.  The DOJ is also seeking to get rid of the ‘public charge’ rule enacted by the Trump administration that prohibited illegal aliens from gaining entry into the U.S. if the country would have to support them.  Good.  Just what we need, Joe- more deadbeats. 
  83. 2021 Friday Q: Political News I– A new poll from the Trafalgar Group and the Convention of States Action says that a large majority of the American people are appalled by Joe Biden’s handling of the Afghan withdrawal.  Speaking of the disaster, even Democrats are calling for hearings on Joe Biden’s messy withdrawal from the forlorn country.  Another poll released yesterday by the Morning Consult Poll says that a plurality of Americans blames Joe Biden for the disaster unfolding across the Central Asian nation and not President Donald J. Trump.  Another poll falling atop these others says that ‘less than 40-percent of the American people believe slobbering Joe Biden is running the country. 
  84. 2021 Friday R: Political News II– Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, says she is preparing to launch articles of impeachment against Joe Biden.  (Note- better include them for “Kooky Kamala” Harris, too).  Meanwhile, Rep. Brian Babin, R-TX 36th congressional district, agrees with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that the ‘mess’ in Afganistan was easily ‘preventable.’ Rep. Adam Smith, DS-WA 9th congressional district, says Joe Biden’s ‘chaos remarks don’t add up.’  (Note- look for the 25th Amendment coming soon.  Poor Joe).  Elsewhere, old video from 2014 has bubbled up once again in which, Senator John McCain, RINO-AZ, says that Anthony Blinken is a ‘danger to the United States.’
  85. 2021 Friday S: Political News III– Dr. Alan Dershowitz says that ‘defending President Donald J. Trump cost him his friendship with far-left Larry David.’  It’s his loss, Dr. Dershowitz.  In other news, freshman Senator Mark Kelly, DS-AZ, is facing scrutiny for failing to disclose investments in a Chi-Com technology company ahead of last year’s elections.  Uh-oh.  In other political news, “Kooky Kamala” Harris is coming to the Golden State to campaign for a fellow loser, Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom ahead of the recall election on September 14, 2021.  We Californians are looking forward to that.
  86. 2021 Friday T: Political News IV– Now that AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka is with the angels (or…), the AFL-CIO Has elected its most diverse leadership in the history of the organization.  Liz Schuler becomes the first female president while two black gentlemen take the numbers two and three spots: Tefere Gebre becomes executive vice president and Fred Redmond becomes secretary-treasurer.  Let us hope they are NOT mob-connected.   In other news, Tucker Carlson reported that Infowars host Owen Shroyer is facing time in the D.C. slammer all because he stood on the steps of the U.S. Capitol but did not go in on January 06, 2021.  Tucker reports that the real reason he is facing trouble is because he said nasty things about Rep. Jerrold “Doughnut-Gobbling” Nadler, DS-NY 10th congressional district, sometime last year.  IF that is all it takes, we’re all going to the gulags.
  87. 2021 Friday U: U.S. Supreme Court News I– The U.S. Supreme Court is set to hear a concealed carry gun Second Amendment case next month; one the Biden regime hopes will allow them to strip Americans of the rights to carry legally owned firearms concealed with a permit.  We hope the court will rule favorably for Americans’ Constitutional rights.

  91. 2021 Friday Y: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News II– Capitol Hill Police Officer Lt.

  98. 2022 Saturday: Friends, many interested observers of the 2022 Mid-Terms are beginning to get frustrated with Senate Republicans.  I mean, why aren’t they out there fighting to help Ron Johnson retain his seat?  Why have they left J.D. Vance, Blake Masters, and Dr. Oz out to pasture?  I mean, I would have voted for Jim Lamon in Arizona because Masters seems to be an odd choice just as someone else might have been better than Dr. Oz.  Still, they are who they are and the money must begin flowing into their coffers now.  It is clear that Senate Minority ‘Leader’ “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell really does not want to win the Senate back if these are to be his new senators because he knows that IF they are, he most likely won’t be re-elected ‘majority leader.’  He is, after all, one of the worst leaders the GOP has ever had much like John Boehner and Paul Ryan were losers in the House.  We need to elect Republicans willing to fight on behalf of the American people, not for the Chi-Coms, the illegal aliens, and the corporations.  How about fighting for us, Mitch?  Let’s fight to neuter Joe Biden ASAP.  We still have 81 days so let’s put them to effective use.  Just dreaming, I guess.  Like I said yesterday, we must consign ourselves to the new global power structure- it’s better to be with them than against them.  Chef Gervais Krinkelmeier.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

“Pet Sounds” came out on May 16, 1966 and was the commercial pinnacle of the Beach Boys.  No longer touring with his brothers, cousin, and friends, Brian was in the studio with session musicians and lyricists and created perhaps one of the all-time greatest albums in the annals of modern, popular music.  From start to finish, the album was a tapestry of musical influences, stories, feelings, and emotions all interwoven with one another.  When the Beatles heard this album, it is reported that they were awed at what they had to compete.  Of course, they would be working on “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.”  The tunes include nothing but memorable hits such as “Wouldn’t It be Nice,” “You Still Believe in Me,” “Don’t Talk (Put Your Head on my Shoulder),” “Sloop John B,” “God Only Knows,” and “Caroline, No.”  We hope you will seek this album out and make it a part of your daily musical rotation because it will indeed grow upon- not only your ears- but your heart, mind and soul.  Today’s rendition is the “Pet Sounds 50th Anniversary Album,” an album that came out on March 23, 2016.  Check it out now- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

[i] We presented the music of the Flying Burrito Brothers beginning Sunday, 23-February-2014 and concluded our presentation on Thursday, 06-March-2014.

[ii] Perhaps one day we will promote the music of the Seeds, the Electric Prunes, and the Amboy Dukes.  We should have done these bands around the same time we did the Strawberry Alarm Clock.

[iii] We look forward to doing the music of this famed funk-rock band.  The Ohio Players are amazing.

[iv] Not sure as to when we will get around to doing the music of Uriah Heep, but we hope to do it at the same time we promote the music of Hawkwind.  We hope you will remain alert as to the day that we do.

[v] We will present the music of Chicago sometime in 2030 so we hope you will remain with us until then.

[vi] We promoted the music of Led Zeppelin- among other numerous interconnected bands beginning with the Yardbirds on Wednesday, 02-July-2014 through vocalist Paul Rodgers of both Free and Bad Company on Sunday, 19-October-2014.  We definitely hope you will check them all out.

[vii] We look forward to promoting the music of Thin Lizzy when we promote the music of U2, sometime within the next 4-5 years.  We hope you will be with us when we do.

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

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

[xx] We believe Officer Byrd is a man who has ‘misplaced’ her service arm on at least two occasions.  We suspect- and this is speculation- that Nancy Pelosi OWNS him because of this and that he was told on January 6, 2021, to SHOOT someone and Ms. Babbitt was the one who took the bullet.  In our eyes, IF he is indeed the officer who shot an unarmed woman who did not threaten him, he will forever be a murderer.

  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).

  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.
  59. 2014 Thursday: Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine enter into free-trade pacts with the European Union, a decision counter to that of Kazakhstan and Belarus, who collaborated with Russia in creation of the Eurasian Union.  Elsewhere, heavy fighting continues in Iraq as ISIS continues tightening the ring around Baghdad, now just 50 or so miles away.   Government troops launch an airborne assault on Tikrit losing one helicopter in the immediate vicinity of the city.
  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. 
  67. 2020 Friday B: Thanks to communist China sending the COVID-19 around the world and especially here to the United States, the week concludes with a DOWN stock market.  Here are the stats: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 25,015.55, DOWN 730.05 points (2.84%); NASDAQ: 9,757.22, DOWN 259.78 points (2.59%); finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,009.05, DOWN 74.71 points (2.42%).   Meanwhile, the Nancy Pelosi-controlled House passes a bill giving statehood to the District of Columbia.  It won’t pass in the U.S. Senate, nor will a majority of the states confirm it in votes.  The Democrats are such scurrilous scumbags that they will resort to anything to add two more senators to the U.S. Senate as well as Rep. 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.
  68. 2021 Saturday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 181,546,318 confirmed cases, +542,668, 3,932,741  confirmed deaths, +11,912 and 166,073,285 confirmed recoveries, +44,093.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 34,490,134 confirmed cases, UP 17,402 from yesterday’s reporting, 619,343 confirmed deaths, UP 408,[v] and 28,912,906 confirmed recoveries, UP 26,202.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[vi]

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 301,437 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 158,212 deaths

  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…

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.

  54. 2014 Thursday: Thanks to the race-monger Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office cancels all of the Washington Redskins’ copyrights on their logo, their sportswear, and everything else.  To take heat off President Barack Obama prior to the upcoming 2014 Mid-term elections, the Democrats use every diversion they can.  WE LOVE THE WASHINGTON REDSKINS AND HOPE THAT THE NEXT PRESIDENT RESTORES THEIR TRADEMARKED LOGOS!

  58. 2018 Tuesday: U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley announces the United States is pulling out of the farcical U.N. 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.’
  76. 2021 Saturday M: Joe Biden News–  Joe Biden’s beloved ‘first dog’ Champ has died at age 13.   Speaking of decrepit old Joe, the man always fearful of his staff’s wrath, attended Mass even as Roman Catholic Bishops in the U.S. debate denying the Pro-Death Movement’s greatest benefactor Holy Communion.
  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.
  82. 2021 Saturday S: Miscellaneous News I– Tropical Storm Claudette has destroyed at least 50 homes in the great state of Alabama and has claimed the lives of at least a dozen people, including 10 children.
  83. 2021 Saturday T: Joe Biden Regime News I– Despite what the usurper-in-chief Joe Biden says, taxes to pay for their crazy COVID-19 budget schemes will hit 60-percent of all Americans while inflation will raise taxes for EVERYONE- including the 75-100 million illegals running amok in the country.  In other regime news, the Veterans Administration will now offer FREE tranny surgeries to all trannys who wish to either add or remove penises.  Boy, oh, boy, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt never envisioned transexual surgeries as part of the G.I. 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.
  87. 2021 Saturday X: Big Tech News– Rep. Barry Loudermilk, R-GA 11th congressional district, says that he and likeminded Republicans are focusing on reining in BIG TECH and on rebooting American productivity.
  88. 2021 Saturday Y: Health and Medical Alerts– Following YouTube’s censoring of a Henderson County (North Carolina) Board meeting in which the board posted a resolution in which the county would not push or incentivize the pushing of Chi-Com vaccinations with county tax dollars, the county board booted YouTube as its carrier of official county business.
  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.
  90. 2021 Saturday AA: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. 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.
  91. 2021 Saturday BB: New Jersey State News– Governor Phil Murphy, Democratic-Socialist, signs a new landlord bill in the once-so-called Garden State that will forbid ALL landlords to delve into the criminal records of potential renters.
  92. 2022 Sunday: Folks, let’s hope it’s a slow weekend but with the way things are going in this country right now with a bogus ‘administration’ in the White House, we might all be concentration camp-bound sooner than anticipated…

[xv] Speaking of ‘reparations,’ Los Angeles Mayor Eric “The Grub” Garcetti, DS, wants to see his ‘reparations plan for slavery go nationwide.’  Look, dumb ass, maybe you went to ‘fool school’ but folks, California NEVER had slaves nor did the state condone slavery so how can you give reparations for something that never existed in your state?  Besides, what are you offering, $25 per year to descendants of former slaves from OTHER former slave-holding states?  What a flipping maggot.

[xvi] Meanwhile, the Antifa garbage attacked attendees at the Western Conference as they traveled to and from this event in Denver, Colorado.  It’s what these cock-s***ing scumbags do.
