  57. 2013 Tuesday: Brainy History says, ‘a new study reports that all Europeans are related to a small group of ancestors dating back only 1,000 years; researchers believe it’s likely that everyone in the world is related over the past few thousand years.’  Meanwhile, members of the ‘religion of peace’ Islam- Boko Haram carry out a terror attack in Nigeria that kills at least 55 people and wounds numerous others.

  59. 2015 Thursday: It appears that the NFL has implicated New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in ‘Deflate-Gate.”  This is the scandal in which, both the Indianapolis Colts and the Baltimore Ravens claimed the famed quarterback used footballs in playoff games that were under pressure, making them easier for Brady to handle.  His father, Tom Brady, Sr., claims it is all a ‘frame.’
  60. 2016 Saturday: Democratic voters on Guam head to the polls in their caucuses.   Elsewhere, near Aleppo, Syria, Iranian troops are battling ISIS thugs and in heavy fighting lose 13 of their soldiers, their biggest loss of life since coming to the aid of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Oliver North, U.S. Army Ret., will become the organization’s next president.   Elsewhere, Paraguay becomes the third country to announce the relocating of its embassy from Tel Aviv to capital of Israel, Jerusalem.  Of course, liberals and Gaza Strip trash are wailing and crying that it’s an ‘affront’ against humanity to do so.  The sooner the better, Paraguay.
  63. 2019 Tuesday: In Venezuela, turmoil- as usual- reigns supreme as the Congress strips opposition leaders of immunity and accuses them of treason.   Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo makes a surprise visit to Iraq to meet with U.S. military and Iraqi leaders so they can determine what to do as the Iranians continue making threats against both nations.  Nuke them.

Currently, Joe is shy 183,514 deaths.      
  68. 2021 Friday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,756,393 confirmed cases, 62,220 confirmed deaths, and 2,001,539 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,262,598 confirmed cases, 35,644 confirmed deaths, and 1,836,489 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 33,036 confirmed cases, 486 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 414,899 confirmed cases, 5,620 confirmed deaths, and 202,488 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s recovery numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Puerto Rico, a place  the Democrats want to make our first welfare state: they have 253,302 confirmed cases, 2,355 confirmed deaths, and 112,074 confirmed recoveries.[x]   
  69. 2021 Friday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 838,858 confirmed cases, 6,375 confirmed deaths, and 831,432 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Oman, a relatively peaceful Arab country: 199,344 cases of the virus, 2,083 confirmed deaths and 181,696 confirmed recoveries.[xi]

  71. 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- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.086 per gallon, $2.882 in Florida, $3.820 in Hawaii, and $3.509 in Washington state.[xvii]    Let’s look at one other location- Ohio: $2.824.  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- Qatar: $1.923 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,260,030,025,130 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xix]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  72. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– After much public outcry, San Diego County, California (nod to Chef Pedro) is canceling a plan on establishing a large tent city in which to house massive numbers of illegal aliens.   (Note- it’s time to rekindle Operation Wetback, an operation that began in June 1954 to deport Mexican illegals back to their country en masse, load these people onto box cars, airliners, buses, even freighters, and sending them BACK to whence the f**k they came.  Now).   Next, Cuban-born U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas says that ‘permanent status is possible for the reunited families of illegal aliens the evil Trump regime separated.  Oh, goodie.   Former Rep. Peter King, R-NY 2nd congressional district, says that ‘amnesty and reparations will increase the numbers of illegals seeking to flood our country.’  Amen.
  73. 2021 Friday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– The U.S. Military is open to training troops from other countries (i.e., mercenaries) to assume our places in Afghanistan once we pull out of that horrible country.  Why can’t we just leave?  Although, here is something we have suggested over the years: WHY not create a U.S. Foreign Legion like the French have theirs?  All the military-aged illegal alien males we can train and send oversea to fight all the wars the Military-Industrial-Political Complex wants to fight.  IF the illegals survive 25 years in the ranks, they can become citizens but not their families, friends, neighbors, or anyone else.[xx]  In other news, Chi-Com hegemony in Africa may soon give them a naval base on the Atlantic.  Wow.  Not good.   Add to that a new report that says the Chi-Coms account for 27-percent of ALL greenhouse gases emitted on the planet.
  74. 2021 Friday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– Emma Green, an Atlantic writer, says that ‘progressives are clinging to COVID-19 restrictions and lockdowns despite what the science says’ (and we always thought progressives ‘listened to science, right?) because it empowers them.  It is amazing to think how many liberal Democrats (and occasional RINO) love the power they have deciding who gets to live their lives and who doesn’t.  They are all fascists at heart.[xxi]
  75. 2021 Friday I: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News–  Rep. Chip Roy, R-TX 21st congressional district, is urging the Lone Star State to pass an election integrity law.  In fact, hours after debating, the Texas House of Representatives is advancing a voter integrity bill.  Next the Honest Elections Project says 77-percent of Americans- including 73-percent of black Americans- want voter ID.  So, give it to us and NOT this H.R. 1 and S.R. 1 bulls**t.   In other election news, Maricopa County, Arizona, Democrats WON’T hand over the routers used in the 2020 Elections to the state Senate investigation into election integrity.  What is up with that?   (Note- the Arizona Senate reassured the feds that election audit security is extremely high so DON’T worry).
  76. 2021 Friday J: Joe Biden Regime News I–  Biden regime hacks didn’t truly celebrate the National Day of Prayer but when bumbling old Joe Biden made a remark or two, the so-called ‘devout Catholic’ could not mention the name of God.  WTF?  In other Biden regime news, Republican senators OPPOSE a Biden regime plan with which to grant amnesty to American scientific researchers who didn’t disclose they were in bed with the Chi-Coms or other adversarial nations.  No, these scumbags should be doing time in federal prisons.   Meanwhile, we learn today that the NEXT White House Press Secretary could be a member of the LGBTQIA+ community.  Whoa.  So much for picking people based on qualifications, not what’s between their legs or the sort of sex they like.  Our money’s on a tranny.[xxii]  Finally, a Florida Atlantic University Business and Economics Polling Initiative Poll says that ‘Florida has not warmed up to “Pro-China Joe” Biden as much as Democrats were hoping.  We doubt that state ever will.
  77. 2021 Friday K: Political News I–  Rep. Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district, says ‘the votes are there to strip Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, of her leadership position.  Boot her ass out NOW.  If she becomes a Democrat, big flipping deal.  Next, Governor Brian Kemp, RINO-GA, is signing a bill that will prohibit ALL efforts at defunding the police within their state.  Speaking of the Peach State, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms- once a rising star in the Democratic Party- announced that she won’t be running for a second term…that star has imploded and now is a black hole…[xxiii]
  78. 2021 Friday L: Miscellaneous News I– The U.S. Army is going to allow female personnel to wear ponytails in all uniforms.  Wow.  Big news. Next, the feds have indicted convicted Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin and his three fellow officers who have not yet even gone on trial on civil rights charges.  Wow.  So much for double jeopardy, folks.  How many bites of the apple do the feds plan to take?  Moving on, California reports its first ever population decline as people are fleeing the state like it’s a hooker with facial herpes.   Finally, it now appears that President Donald J. Trump has an iron-fisted grip on the Republican Party.  Good.  IT is his and the America First Crowd’s Party.  Period.  
  79. 2021 Friday M: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the numbers for the Mega-Millions Draw #1657 with a $370 million jackpot on the line: 05, 10. 19, 21, 50, and Mega 10.  Out of 151,903 winning tickets, the highest winners were SIX people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $6,090 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The tertiary effort by the Band- “Stage Fright” came out on August 17, 1970 and was a wonderful addition to the band’s growing discography.  Once again, the band featured the lineup of Rick Danko (bass, vocals, and fiddle), Robbie Robertson (guitars and vocals), Levon Helm (drums, percussion, vocals, mandolins, and tambourines), Richard Manuel (pianos, organs, and vocals), and Garth Hudson (keyboards and saxophones).   The album contained two big hits- the title track and “The Shape I’m In.”  What we have for you today is the “Stage Fright 50th Anniversary Edition” (where the hell does the time go?), a deluxe version that came out on December 16, 2020.  We hope you will seek this one out and consider adding it to your collection as there’s nothing better than this glorious group.  Ask anyone who’s seen them in their heyday, and you will understand just how legendary and amazing they were.  You will love them just as we do.  Enjoy.

[i] 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.

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

[iii] We promoted the music of the Keef Hartley Band as well as of one of its integral members Miller Anderson on Monday, 02-October-2017 through Saturday, 21-October-2017.  We hope you will check their music out by visiting those posts.

[iv] We definitely look forward to presenting the music of Joe Cocker, the famed British ex-bricklayer who blew the minds of the world at the 1969 Woodstock Music and Arts Festival.  Please stay tuned for further developments.

[v] Martin Windrow’s superb book, “The Last Valley,” Da Capo Press, 2006 is an amazing helpmate for information on this famed battle.  Seek it out.

[vi] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.  This presentation included the Jefferson Starship, too, of which, the artist was NOT a member.

[vii] We offered the music of the legendary Pacific Gas & Electric beginning on Thursday, 12-January-2012 through Sunday, 15-January-2012.  We hope you will seek out the music by this famous, interracial hippie rock band.

[xxi] Personally- and this is me, Chef Murph talking- if I owned the French Laundry and that little closet queen Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom had come to my restaurant to dine, after what he’s done to the hospitality and foodservice industries in the Golden State, we might have had a slip up in the mushrooms we served him and his party.  Oops, like fucking up the blowfish at the sashimi bar…

[xxii] Speaking of trannys, a Swedish hospital system is prohibiting hormone blockers for children under age 18.  Good.  About time someone began doing this.

  69. 2021 Thursday: JOE BIDEN NEWS– Joe Biden debuted executive actions this morning that he is taking to strip firearms away from the American people.  Most of them are feelgood measures for his whack-a-doodle base but even so, some of them have teeth- if anyone will obey them (which, we here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM have no intention of doing.  NO one is taking our firearms away, no one).  Next, Joe Biden nominated perhaps the worst person to become head of the ATF- the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (and Explosives), David Chipman, the dimwit who transformed the debacle at Waco, Texas, into what it became by lying through his teeth about things that SUPPOSEDLY occurred there, but which did not, and which then led to the deaths of mostly women- many of them pregnant- and children.  This was one of the shining events that occurred during the Bill Clinton administration, overseen by Attorney-General Janet Reno.   Congressman Ken Buck, R-CO 4th congressional district says that Chipman is the absolute worst person to head the ATF.
  70. 2021 Thursday A: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE–  Texas Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, came out today and lit the Biden administration up for the appalling conditions in Border Patrol facilities holding tens of thousands of illegal alien, river-swimming, or fence-jumping invaders.  He condemns the Biden administration for its shocking lack of compassion and sensitivity and demands they close these facilities now which means these people should be loaded aboard empty airliners and dumped back in Guatemala.  Let THEM sort them out seeing as how they are a major starting point for this invasion.  Build the wall and deport them all, now.  Anyhow, Governor Abbott pointed out the human rights abuses such as rampant sexual assaults on women, children, and weaklings as well as shortages of food, medical supplies, clean water, and proper clothing and bedding.  IF these horrendous practices occurred under the Trump administration, President Trump would be visiting Old Sparky but under Joe Biden, “No problem, amigos, no problem”… Finally, people continue asking where the nation’s ‘border czar,’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris is.  She has been traveling around the country but nowhere near the border.  At least Cuban-born U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is visiting the border today.  Praise the Lord! 
  71. 2021 Thursday B: MASS SHOOTING AND CRIME NEWS–  We learned early today that in Rock Hill, S.C., former NFL player Phillip Adams shot and killed Dr. Robert Lesslie and his wife, Barbara Lesslie along with their two grandchildren- ages 5 and 9- in their home as well as two air conditioning technicians working outside their home.  One of the techs survived and called in for help and when police arrived, they found evidence that led them to the home of Adams’ parents where they encircled the home after getting his mother and father out of the home.  Adams then shot himself.  No one knows why he did what he did.  Later in the day, following Joe Biden’s mumbling stumbling bumbling announcement on various executive actions he is taking to strip guns away from the American people, a mass shooting occurred in Texas.  Like clockwork, in Bryan, Texas, a gunman entered the corporate offices of Kent Moore Cabinets and shot seven people, some of them critically, but none of them dead at the time of this reporting.  Police are purportedly chasing several suspects so we will provide updates as we learn them.
  72. 2021 Thursday C: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS– The communist Chinese in Beijing warned their stooge- “Pro-China Joe” Biden- today that he had better not boycott the 2022 Winter Olympics in their capital city.  We say, “F**k them!  Who do you think you are, you commie bastards?’  Next, the Biden administration announced that it is going to lift ALL sanctions on the crap-hole nation of Iran without seeking anything in return.  Good for you, Joe, good for you. Regarding the Chi-Coms, tech investor Peter Thiel says that ‘Bitcoin’ may very well be a financial tool the communists can use against the United States.  Moving on, France is postponing the French Open to May 30 over fears of COVID-19.  Meanwhile, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says the ‘U.S. policy on Russia is both dumb and ineffective.’  This comes after the Biden administration yesterday evening revived the Trump-Russia collusion scam and Russian interference in U.S. elections by announcing he is going to slam Russia with new sanctions for meddling and hacking.  Okay, Joe.
  73. 2021 Thursday D:  NATIONAL POLITICS– Congressman Lee Zeldin, R-NY 1st congressional district has officially announced he is running to become governor of New York.  Next, Governor Ralph “Black Face” Northam, D-VA, has officially endorsed former Virginia Democrat governor and bagman for Bill and Hillary Clinton- Terry “the Punk” McAuliffe[vii]– to become governor again.  Moving on, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district has demanded that “Kooky Kamala” Harris attend FBI and CIA intel briefings.   Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump is nudging Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson, GOP, to seek another term by giving him his endorsement.   Meanwhile, in a threat to the Joe Biden agenda, following giving his wife a cushy gig, Senator Joe Manchin, D-WV, refuses to allow ‘budget reconciliation’ to be used to pass bills nor will he vote to smack down the Filibuster rule in the U.S. Senate.  God bless you, Senator Manchin.
  74. 2021 Thursday E: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– the National Rifle Association’s Wayne LaPierre says he failed to disclose yacht trips he accepted.  Next, we learned today that the Trump administration tried conducting secret talks in Syria with the goal of freeing American hostages across the Middle East.   Elsewhere, the San Francisco schools system- after spending loads of taxpayer dollars- has decided it will postpone renaming schools named after Americans (or foreigners) who might be RACISTS.    Meanwhile, John Gizzi of Newsmax says that ‘John Boehner,[viii] the former speaker of the House and now a political lobbyist for the Chi-Coms is attacking conservatives while ignoring his own lack of character.’  Ouch.
  75. 2021 Thursday F: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 132,929,832 confirmed cases, +473,156, 2,885,401  confirmed deaths, +11,580, and 75,436,505 confirmed recoveries, +215,045.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,124,092 confirmed cases, UP 67,815 from yesterday’s reporting, 564,447 confirmed deaths, UP 2,672, and 118,878,112 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[ix] 
  76. 2021 Thursday G: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 235,934 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States– feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.

  80. 2021 Thursday K: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE THREE STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.927 per gallon, $2.832 in Florida, $3.713 in Hawaii, and $3.336 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other state- Connecticut: $2.889.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,147,683,151,204 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvi]  Cloward and Piven running amok.  In other disturbing news, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Gov, aka the Gropin’ Gov, announced that the Empire State is going to take $2.1 billion of the JOE BIDEN PORKULUS being given to his state to provide checks to ILLEGAL ALIENS and newly released felons.  Wow. 
  81. 2021 Thursday L: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– Tennessee says that handguns will no longer require a permit within their state.  Next, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, and his fellow GOP senators blast the Biden administration for its decision to begin sending taxpayer dollars to the human garbage in Palestine.   In other not-so-surprising news, the number of Facebook users whose information was stolen online now teeters around 533 million.  Thank you, Mark Zuckerberg, thank you.
  82. 2022 Friday: You know the drill…

88. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, MARCH 29, 2022

2021 Monday E: CRIME NEWS- Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser (bow-wow) victim blames the Pakistani immigrant Uber Eats driver Mohammad Anwar who was carjacked by two young black female thugs and left for dead in an ensuing accident caused by them. Mayor Bowser is protecting the young thugs while issuing ‘tips’ on how to prevent future carjackings. We guess Muslims rank lower on the chart of Liberal Identity Politics than once they did.

  10. 1798 Thursday: The Republic of Switzerland forms.
  11. 1799 Friday: New York passes a law, which gradually abolishes the institution of slavery in the state.

  21. 1903 Sunday: Using Marconi’s wireless, news media commences a regular service with news flowing between New York and London and vice-versa.

  23. 1912 Friday: British explorer Robert Falcon Scott, his doomed expedition stranded in an Antarctic blizzard after failing to be the first to reach the South Pole, wrote the last words of his journal: “For God’s sake, look after our people!”
  24. 1913 Saturday: The Reichstag announced a raise in taxes to fund a new military budget.
  25. 1932 Tuesday: Jack Benny debuts on radio on Ed Sullivan’s New York Interview program.
  26. 1936 Sunday: Nazi propaganda claims 99% of Germans voted for Nazi candidates.  More than 82 years in the 2020 Presidential Election, the same types of liars will claim that slobbering Joe Biden, a senile, pro-communist China-loving loser received 80 million votes over the 76 million for President Donald J. Trump.  Everyone knows that the majority of Germans did not vote for the Nazis just as the world knows eight decades-plus later that a loser like Joe Biden received 80 million popular votes.  It’s a bunch of malarkey.
  27. 1940 Friday: Joe Louis knocks out Johnny Paycheck in 2 to retain heavyweight-boxing title.  Elsewhere, Soviet Foreign Minister Vyacheslav Molotov announces that the Soviet Union ‘will remain neutral in the war between Nazi Germany and France and Britain.’  Boy, does he have a surprise coming his way in June 1941.  Speaking of the Soviets, they are looking to nick off Bessarabia from Rumania which will put the Rumanians in the Axis camp.
  28. 1941 Saturday: As the British continue pushing through Ethiopia on the way to liberate the capital of Addis Ababa from the Fascist Italians, Italian civilians- who have no love for the war imposed upon them by Il Duce- are begging for protection from the British.  Renegade Askari troops are running amok murdering, raping, and torturing Italians wherever they find them.
  29. 1942 Sunday: Things are dire for the British indeed when they begin floating the idea of granting independence to their crown colony of India following a successful conclusion to World war II.  They desperately need Indian colonial troops to help them prosecute the war on all fronts.   Meanwhile, the RAF bomber command begins attacking civilian targets in Germany.  The strategy is to harm the civilian population as much as possible with the idea of driving them to take down the Nazi government.  Of course, this will never happen, and the German people will suffer horribly at the hands of their enemies.
  30. 1943 Monday: World War II rationing of meat, fats, and cheese began across the United States.  Meanwhile, in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, Chad Allan—multi-instrumentalist with Chad Allan and the Expressions, the band that would become the Guess Who[ii]—is born.  Elsewhere, the British Admiralty is weighing a difficult decision- do they suspend aid convoys to their new allies, the Soviet Union, because they lack the naval and long-range air assets to protect the convoys heading to Arctic Russian ports or do, they continue sending supplies and losing precious ships and personnel?
  31. 1944 Wednesday: Imperial Japanese forces continue trying to invest the eastern Indian city of Imphal, perhaps one of their worst-planned, self-inflicted military disasters yet.  When they should have been withdrawing their forces to points further east to defend the territories nearer to home conquered by them in late 1941-mid-1943, they have the idea that the people of India will join them in destroying the British.  This won’t happen- the Brits promised the Indian people their independence.  
  32. 1945 Thursday: During World War II, March 29 is the final day Nazi Germany launches B-1 attacks against Great Britain while the Soviet Army on the Eastern Front mauls the German 4th Army to the point that it no longer is battle-worthy.  In Hungary, as the Germans continue being forced back by the Red Army, Hungarian troops are deserting in droves and joining with the Reds.  They must do what they must to survive this horrendous conflict.  Still, the Germans can dish out a harsh mauling here and there.
  33. 1947 Saturday: Future keyboardist and vocalist with the rock band, Toto (1977-1984 / 1989 / 1998-2008)- Bobby Kimball- is born on this date.
  34. 1949 Tuesday: Turkey recognizes Israel.  When they were still a FREE democratic republic, the Turks were great people and were friendly with much of the world.  Fifty years later or so when the dictator would come and make the country into a junior partner of the Islamist school of thought, all of this would go out the window.
  35. 1951 Thursday: Julius and Ethel Rosenberg suffer conviction for espionage and in 1953, the couple will meet their end in the electric chair.
  36. 1954 Monday: The French paratroopers under the command of Major Marcel Bigeard manage to destroy numerous People’s Army antiaircraft artillery pieces which allows for French air assets to bring in supplies and reinforcements and to take out several hundred wounded soldiers.  Meanwhile, the command structure in Dien Bien Phu comes to the harsh decision that road clearing operations between the main camp and Isabelle to the south is becoming a costly daily battle for the troops.  Isabelle will have to rely on air drops from whatever planes can penetrate the AA batteries surrounding them.  Still, the French have no intention of giving in to the communists.
  37. 1961 Wednesday: After a 4-year trial, Nelson Mandela wins acquittal on treason charges.  In the U.S., the 23rd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution passes ratification thereby allowing the residents of Washington, D.C., to vote in presidential elections.
  38. 1962 Thursday: Jack Paar hosted NBC’s “Tonight” show for the final time, although the network aired a repeat the following night.  Johnny Carson debuted as host the following October.  Meanwhile, communist authorities ordered the trials of the failed Bay of Pigs participants in Cuba.
  39. 1964 Sunday: In Las Vegas, Nevada, future Democratic Senator Catherine Cortez Masto is born.  She would enter the world’s greatest deliberative body on January 03,

Bush at the White House.  Elsewhere, due to Chi-Com bullying, the nation of Dominica withdraws its diplomats from the Republic of China- Taiwan- and sends them to Beijing.  Cowards.  Meanwhile, scientists are all agog at having found methane in the Martian atmosphere which means there could be organic processes occurring on the Red Planet.  We suspect there are- where’s there’s water, folks, there’s life and where there’s life, there’s methane.
  56. 2005 Tuesday: In war-devastated Iraq- thanks to the Bush-Cheney administration- three Romanian journalists undergo kidnapping by violent jihadists.  Although these poor souls face having their heads lopped off, it’s clearer that the scumbags holding them want to charge a massive ransom for their safe return.  We shall see.
  57. 2006 Wednesday: Christian convert Abdul Rahman flees Afghanistan and receives asylum in Italy.  Multitudes of Afghan clerics and government officials demand his extradition back to his home country so they can show him what Islamic ‘justice’ is.
  58. 2007 Thursday: Once again, a militant hegemonic Iran is up to no good.  The U.N. Security Council is wagging a finger at them in ‘grave, grave concern’ over the Iranian Revolutionary Guard capturing and imprisoning 15 British Royal Navy and Marines they claim entered their territorial waters.  Time to drop some neutron bombs on these sand maggots.
  59. 2008 Saturday: Liberals are creaming their pants around the world as today is EARTH HOUR, a time in which, slobbering liberals encourage everyone to go without ALL nonessential power between the hour of 8-9:00 P.M. local time.  This will show those dastardly energy-guzzling scumbags like Senator John F. Kerry, D-MA.
  60. 2009 Sunday: At a nursing home in Carthage, North Carolina, a POS gunman goes on a rampage killing at least 8 people and wounding another 3.  Democrats immediately begin screaming for ‘GUN CONTROL!  CONFISCATE ALL GUNS!  DESTROY THE NRA!’  To be expected, every time some schmuck uses a gun for evil.
  61. 2010 Monday: At least 38 people die and 60 suffer injuries when two female suicide bombers carry out two separate terrorist attacks at Moscow Metro stations Lubyana and Park Kultury.   Elsewhere, in Myanmar, Aung San Suu Kyi and her political movement, the National League for Democracy, announces that it will boycott the upcoming elections because of the corruption of their government.
  62. 2011 Tuesday: James Bullard, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis calls for the Federal Reserve to limit its purchase of U.S. Treasuries because they ‘feed the fire’ of inflation.  Meanwhile, from one end of the Near and Middle East to the other, people are running amok during the ‘Arab Spring.’  Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is assuming control of the entire government after two weeks of violent protests.

  65. 2014 Saturday:  Russia makes assurances that the country will not invade Ukraine in its efforts to resolve the dispute over its annexation of Crimea.  Of course, the Russians have already gobbled up the Crimea and will soon be waging undeclared war in eastern Ukraine on behalf of ‘Russian separatists’ there.
  66. 2015 Sunday: To combat the ISIS thugs, Egyptian President Fattah al-Sisi announces that moderate Arab states will begin allowing their militaries to work with one another since Barack Obama cut off aid to Egypt, Jordan, and others.  Saudi Arabia has already been battling Iranian-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen.   Meanwhile, Pakistan is sending a Boeing 747 to evacuate its diplomats and civilians out of that crumbling country.
  67. 2016 Tuesday: Due to increasing strife and chaos along the southern border of Turkey with Iraq, the U.S. State Department as well as the Pentagon begin ordering all diplomatic and military personnel to evacuate.  ISIS is continuing to run amok in Syria butchering and killing people all over the place so in order to avoid an international incident, it’s time to begin withdrawing U.S. personnel.  We’d hate to go to war in Syria, right (or have we already been fighting there)?  Elsewhere, Breitbart News reports that Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski is charged with battery for allegedly having pushed their reporter, Michelle Fields, away from his candidate on March 08.  What a load of crap.
  68. 2017 Wednesday: Britain filed for divorce from the European Union as Prime Minister Theresa May sent a six-page letter to EU Council President Donald Tusk.  Meanwhile, Ivanka Trump assumes a position as an unpaid advisor to her father, President Donald J.

  69. 2018 Thursday: Because the U.S. Department of Homeland Security failed to notify screened asylum seekers that their one-year period for requesting asylum was going to end, thus prompting the illegals to hurry up with their claims, Judge Ricardo S. Martinez orders the DHS to give the ‘asylum seekers’ another year to file their applications and also orders the DHS to fix their rules.   Meanwhile, the 2018 Major League Baseball season gets underway.  
  70. 2019 Friday: Democratic politician Lucy Flores accuses former vice president and presidential candidate Joseph R. Biden of an ‘inappropriate kiss.’  Oh, well; it’s not the first time.   Elsewhere, a judge in the Cayman Islands, a judge throws out a law stipulating that marriage is between one man and one woman and thus legalizes with the stroke of a pen gay marriage.  And another one bites the dust.
  71. 2020 Sunday: Thanks to the Wuhan Flu leaving China and enveloping the world, the number of confirmed global cases sits at 718,685 what with 33,881 confirmed deaths from the virus.  Meanwhile, in the United States, we know of 139,675 cases with at least 2,436 deaths.  China continues trying to alleviate itself of the sole responsibility as creators of this horrendous virus, but everyone knows the communists sitting pretty in Beijing are the culprits and that when the crisis passes, they will be held to account for it.  Shame on them: your plan to take out President Trump by ruining the global economy is a complete failure.
  72. 2021 Monday: JOE BIDEN NEWS– First, we hear that Joe Biden’s administration won’t lift the Trump-imposed tariffs on the People’s Republic of (communist) China.  This remains to be seen.  Next, Joe Biden says he has no plans on meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.  Joe plans to take a tough stance towards Pyongyang.  We shall see what the gets us.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump made a surprise visit to a wedding being held on the grounds of Mar-a-Lago and much to the delight of the guests began ripping into feeble old Joe Biden.   In other Joe Biden news, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, slams Uncle Joe and his administration for labeling everything RACIST or calling it JIM CROW.  We agree.  Enough is enough already![iv]
  73. 2021 Monday A: FOREIGN NEWS/OVERSEAS NEWS I– In the Suez Canal, after offloading the quarter-mile-long Panamanian-flagged, Japanese-owned container ship, an armada of tugboats and cranes was finally able to get the ship back into the water.  Global economic losses per day due to the complete stoppage of canal traffic is estimated to be at $9 billion per day.  Prices on all goods will go up while others will once again be snapped up by hoarders.   Next, a report on One America News says that U.S. banks are busily divesting from communist China Tech and mainstream media companies.  Good.  They are a bunch of propagandists.   Next, Kim Jong Un says that the ‘United Nations is trying to negate his nation’s ability to defend itself from foreign attack.’
  74. 2021 Monday B: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE– late last night, we were able to witness video in which a Baby Evita look-alike with BIG GOO-GOO EYES and a black face mask was prohibiting U.S. senators from filming the outrageous human rights abuses occurring in border holding pens for illegal aliens.  Apparently, the Biden administration has hired a bunch of young leftists to shield anyone from getting too close to the illegal aliens, languishing in squalid conditions far worse than what Kim Jong Un does to three generations of dissidents in his country.   This is contemptable and it must stop NOW.  Speaking of the border, “Kooky Kamala” Harris, supposedly the nation’s vice president, says she (and Uncle Joe) are NOT going to visit the southern border anytime soon but that she- as the new BORDER CZAR[v]– will meet with Central American leaders so she can address the illegal alien invasion at its source(s).   (Note- the administration says they are working on a plan but won’t say what the plan might be.  We at the AICPENDBLOG.COM suspect it will be sending trillions of taxpayer dollars to Third World despots and thugs).
  75. 2021 Monday C: POLLING NEWS– a recent poll shows that 57-percent of the American people disapprove of Joe Biden’s handling of the Second Amendment and his bid to outlaw all guns.  The same poll says that 54-percent of the American people view the activities along our southern border as a CRISIS although Uncle Joe and his bought-and-paid-for fake news media hacks do their best to avoid calling it as such.   Another poll shown on Newsmax says that a significant percentage of the American people view Cancel Culture as a dire threat to liberty and freedom.  Time to destroy it, folks.
  76. 2021 Monday D: COVID-19/CORONAVIRUS NEWS– Former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows blasts Dr. Deborah Birx and the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci for their revisionist rearrangement of what we know about COVID-19, whence it came from, and how bad it is.  The American people are tired of the constant barrage of lying and intimidation on the China Virus.  Elsewhere, the Centers for Disease Control have extended the moratorium on evictions.  We didn’t know the CDC was in control of who could and who could not be evicted?  At what time will landlords be provided aid?  In other CDC news, the agency nixed Governor Ron DeSantis’ request to get the cruise lines up and going now that the Chi-Vi is scaling back.  Governor DeSantis says he will fight them and is threatening to sue.  Next, a new report released by the World Health Organization says that ‘the Chinese Virus came from animals, NOT from the Wuhan Institute of Virology,’ which if we are to believe this crock of festering crap returns us to the Wuhan Meat Market Malady Theory (although the virus came from animals and the Chi-Coms inside the institute were studying bat viruses.  Ba-bam!).
  77. 2021 Monday E: CRIME NEWS– Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser (bow-wow) victim blames the Pakistani immigrant Uber Eats driver Mohammad Anwar who was carjacked by two young black female thugs and left for dead in an ensuing accident caused by them.  Mayor Bowser is protecting the young thugs while issuing ‘tips’ on how to prevent future carjackings.  We guess Muslims rank lower on the chart of Liberal Identity Politics than once they did.  Elsewhere, the trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin is underway with opening statements made by both sides.  If the jurors follow the law, from what we saw already, it appears that Officer Chauvin will be cleared of all charges and will be reinstated on the force, IF the jurors follow the law.  Meanwhile, an Antifa mob in Salem, Oregon, attacked a Blue Lives Matter rally.  Next, reports from the Windy City from last night say that a car full of shooters pulled up alongside a party bus at a stoplight and lit the vehicle up.  One was killed outright and at least three others suffered injuries in the unprovoked assault.  Finally, in the Washington State House of Representatives, a bill has been passed prohibiting open carry at the state capitol and on state property.
  78. 2021 Monday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– The National Rifle Association reports that business is good with an average of 1,000 new signups each day.  Excellent.   Meanwhile, Los Angeles County, California, has decided that violent crime has gotten so out of control that they are going to REFUND the law enforcement budget $36 million they cut from it several months back.  Next, Piers Morgan comes to the defense of Sharon Osbourne, recently fired from the ‘chick show,’ The Talk, for defending him.  Whatever the f*** happened to the right to express one’s opinions? 
  79. 2021 Monday G: GOP NEWS I– Senator Dan Sullivan, R-AK, says he will support his fellow senator, the highly unlikable party hack, Lisa Murkowski, who is facing a tough road ahead.  Alaska GOP politician Kelly Tshibaka, former Department of Administration commissioner, is seeking to primary Senator Murkowski in 2022.  Where can we send money, Kelly?   Elsewhere, famed attorney Linn Wood says he is seeking to become head of South Carolina’s GOP.  Uh, okay, didn’t you cost the state of Georgia TWO Senate seats, Mr. Wood?  Next, Senator Thom Tillis, R-NC, tells the media that he has a ‘prostate cancer’ confirmation from his doctor.  Good luck, Senator.  Hang in there.
  80. 2021 Monday H: POPULAR CULTURE NEWS– If you want to know where the blood of aborted fetuses go, rapper Lil NAS X and Nike are offering a limited-edition shoe, 666 pairs at more than a grand each dedicated to Satan.  In fact, the shoes are so ‘satanic,’ that the ‘Church of Satan’ has said, ‘right on, son, right on.’  Each pair of tennis shoes is made with ONE DROP of human blood which is sick enough, but the shoes are covered with satanic symbols and the like and what is clear to us is that although many will dismiss the shoes as a passing fancy, in a culture where Christianity and Judaism is under constant assault, this is evil shit.  Nike says we just make them, we neither approve nor disapprove of the shoes.  Wow.  NO more Nike shoes for us as this is sick shit.  Elsewhere, the author of Captain Underpants- David Murray Pilkey Jr.- has just had his books banned for…wait for it…you guessed it: PASSIVE RACISM.  Wow.
  81. 2021 Monday I: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– New Mexico is suing the Biden administration over its plan to store nuclear waste in the Cactus State.  We keep waiting for someone such as Elon Musk to find a way to recycle and reuse spent uranium.  That would be a game changer as far a nuclear energy goes.  Imagine if atomic energy became so commonplace and safe that all ships and aircraft could be powered via nuclear energy, it would flatten the costs of fuel for massive cargo ships such as the one recently freed in the Suez Canal.   Speaking of Elon Musk, first, the Biden administration is floating a $3 trillion ‘infrastructure/green energy bill’ that will rely heavily on high-speed rail crisscrossing the country.[vi]  Folks, in California, each mile of the failed HSR project costs $200 million and much of the work done on it is done by the Chi-Coms.[vii]  Elon Musk is in the process of making the Hyperloop a reality just as he is a tunnel network that will permit self-driving vehicles to zip people underground across the country at 150 mph or more.  Hey, Uncle Joe: how about working with Elon Musk you senile old f***?   Speaking of energy, a new report says that the Chi-Coms are responsible for more than HALF of all coal emissions on the planet and it’s the United States that must use windmills and solar farms.
  82. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 127,479,098 confirmed cases, +46,271, 2,788,212  confirmed deaths, +7,436, and 72,276,724 confirmed recoveries, +316,035.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,318,775 confirmed cases, up 64,285 from yesterday’s reporting, 549,863 confirmed deaths, UP 394, and 118,013,462 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them. 
  83. 2021 Monday K: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 222,653 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States– feeble old Joe, in another three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  
  84. : 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-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,541,928 confirmed cases (less than yesterday’s count), 56,072 confirmed deaths (less than yesterday’s), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,950 confirmed cases, 454 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 359,290 confirmed cases, 5,249 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., the next highest state after California- Arizona: currently, they have 836,253 confirmed cases, 16,745 confirmed deaths, but sadly, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 829,689 confirmed cases, 6,122 confirmed deaths, and 808,869 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).   Let’s look at one other country- Serbia, home of the flashpoint for World War I: 566,689 cases of the virus, 5,039 confirmed deaths and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.[viii]    Meanwhile, Joe Biden is demanding that states reimpose their mask mandates so we can ‘beat the virus.’  F*** you, Joe.  NOT our president.
  85. 2021 Monday M:   STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,171.37, UP 98.49 points (+0.30%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,059.65, DOWN 79.08 points (-0.60%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,971.09, DOWN 3.45 points (-0.087%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $62.10 per barrel, +0.54 (+0.83%).  The price of GOLD is $1,710.10 per troy oz., -2.10 (-0.12%) while the price of SILVER is $24.72 per troy ounce, -0.06 (-0.23%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,183.40 per troy oz, +1.70 (+1.14%) while the price of COPPER is $4.04 per pound, +0.01 (+0.20%).[ix]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,541.50 per troy oz, +3.00 (+0.12%).[x] The price of RHODIUM is $27,500.00 per troy oz., -700.00 (-2489%).[xi]    Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.57 Chinese yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.60.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.   In Bolivian boliviano, one greenback equals 6.85.[xii]  
  86. 2021 Monday N: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE THREE STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.897 per gallon, $2.874 in Florida (now that Chef Cheryl and her family have relocated there), $3.645 in Hawaii, and $3.326 in Washington state.[xiii]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,109,117,789,302 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xiv]  Cloward and Piven running amok.  Meanwhile, Mayor Pete- our ‘transportation secretary’- says the Biden administration has NO plans at raising gasoline taxes or taxing drivers a mileage fee (which means they probably do) in order to pay for the upcoming $3 trillion ‘infrastructure plan.’  I guess we shall see.
  87. 2021 Monday O: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– It would appear that New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo has yet another accuser claiming that the ‘Gropin’ Gov’ groped her and didn’t want to let go.  What a POS and yet like a turd stuck to the side of the crapper, this piece of fecal matter refuses to go.  The new accuser says that the handsy governor groped this woman while touring her FLOODED flipping home.  Ye gods, is there NOTHING this scum bum won’t do?  Speaking of floods, several people lost their lives in flash-flooding in Tennessee.
  88. 2022 Tuesday: By now, everyone knows the drill…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Rick Danko released his third solo album, “Live on Breeze Hill,” on July 27, 1999.  The album was recorded at a live show three months before the legendary bassist/fiddler/vocalist died which makes it an alluring show.  Always cursed with substance abuse problems and subsequent poor health, Danko was a fragile individual yet a brave, powerful performer.   Of the 12 cuts on this superb outing, most of them are Band classics, both tunes he and Richard Manuel sang as well as one or two from Levon Helm.  Also included are some of his originals which makes it a glorious purchase to be sure.  Joining Danko are friend, Garth Hudson (keyboards/accordions), Jim Weider and Roger Mason (guitars, basses), Randy Ciarlante (vocals/drums/percussion), three brass players and another keyboardist.  We certainly hope that you will seek this album out at your favorite haunt for music and give it a good listen- we think you will enjoy it.  Seek it out now- you will be glad you did.

[i] The young United States should have taken ALL of Mexico down through the Central American countries to where the southern end of Panama meets the northern end of Colombia.  Had we done that, we would have solved the issue of illegal immigration.  We should have also taken Cuba in 1898 and kept her just as we should have gone back and taken Canada.  What a glorious nation we would have, one now being overrun with Third World illegal aliens.

[ii] On Wednesday, 14-June-2017, we began presenting the music of the Guess Who and of its individual members- including Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Randy Bachman, Burton Cummings, and Bravebelt.  The entire discography ran from the above date through Sunday, 01-October-2017.  We hope you will check them out.

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

[iv] Democrats think that if they call everything racist or Jim Crow or some combination of the terms that they can guilt or shame the American people into silence.  Here’s the deal- we don’t give a flying f*** anymore, call us racist as much as you like but one day when a REAL incidence of racism occurs and no one gives a damn, you will only have yourselves to blame.

[v] Senator John Kennedy, R-LA, says that ‘putting (“Kooky”) Kamala Harris in charge along the border is akin to putting banned cyclist Lance Armstrong in charge of the DEA.’  You just don’t do that because as everyone knows, the former senator from California believes that border officials and immigration authorities are akin to the Ku Klux Klan.  F*** you, “Kooky Kamala.”

[vi] National debt in the United States sits at $28 trillion and is expected to double within 30 years or less.  Yikes.

[vii] In France, the cost per mile of high-speed rail is $30 million which still seems high.  However, in the United States, projects such as these are big pools of money from which, liberal politicians reward not only their flunkies and lackeys but also themselves which is why work is tortuously slow and cost overruns are increase by the day.  The people of California do not want this crap and yet the crap is forced upon us and Joe Biden plans to see that the money-go-round continues.

Colonel Pierre Langlais confronts Colonel Christian De Castries and demands a reordering of the command structure.  Castries is somewhat subdued, his chief-of-staff Lt.

Trump.  
  61. 2017 Friday: Thanks to schmucks such as House Speaker Paul Ryan, the Trump administration and their GOP allies in the House of Representatives are forced to pull their plan to overturn Obamacare and to replace it with a better plan.   Meanwhile, the House Intelligence Committee goes to war with itself over the bogus Trump-Russia Collusion scam, the very same engineered by the Democrats.  Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, and ranking member, the locoweed Adam Schiff, DS-CA 28th congressional district, are butting heads over information coming out that shows that the Obama administration SPIED on the then-Trump campaign.

  63. 2019 Sunday: On this Sunday, Attorney-General Bill Barr put out a brief on the 22-month Robert S. Mueller III investigation into Donald Trump, Trump campaign officials, and Vladimir Putin’s Russia by saying that ‘Mueller’s team had found no evidence of collusion between now-President Trump, members of his campaign, his friends and family and Russia nor was there any sign of obstruction.’  In effect, this clears the president and those around him other than those convicted of process crimes during the investigation.  The Democrats could not handle the outcome and rushed to the microphones braying like dogs for ALL the evidence and promise to continue the witch hunt into Mr. Trump.  The investigation began- many believe- in late 2015 or early 2016 and involved members of the Hillary Clinton team, Barack Obama Justice Department and FBI officials, as well as foreign operatives hired by members of the Obama team to set up candidate- and then- President Trump.  
  64. 2020 Tuesday: Democrats continue stalling in the U.S. Senate by holding up Wuhan Virus relief legislation by trying to stuff in Green New Deal, Pro-Death, union, identity politics, election fraud such as ballot harvesting in ALL 50 states, and more.  Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell continues rebuffing them in the hope that honest and legitimate legislation can occur.  Meanwhile, the world around mid-day acknowledges approximately 414,277 cases of COVID-19, with 38,819 new cases over the past 24 hours.  Global deaths are 18,557 what with 2,146 in the previous 24 hours.  In the United States, there are 51,542 cases of the Kung Flu with 8,328 new cases over the past 24 hours.  There is a total of 674 deaths, up by 95 over the previous 24 hours.  The Dow Jones Industrial Average closes UP by 11.3% or up 2,112.98 points, closing at 20,764.91.  Bravo. 
  65. 2020 Tuesday A: Bill Rieflin- drummer with King Crimson from 2013-15 / 2017 until today- died in his hometown of Seattle, Washington, on this date at age 59.  Cancer was the cause.
  66. 2021 Wednesday: JOE BIDEN NEWS– in anticipation of tomorrow’s FIRST NEWS CONFERENCE with the press, Joe Biden announces (or his earpiece does) that 40 reporters will be allowed into the briefing.  Next, Newsmax says that the mocking of Joe Biden by our foreign adversaries shows that they neither respect him nor fear him which is not good for the United States.   However, (and we don’t believe this one iota), the American Research Group shows an approval rating for Joe Biden of 60-percent and 33-percent disapproval rate.   (Note- Rasmussen puts Joe’s numbers at 48-percent approve and 50-percent disapprove of him).  Moving on, Joe Biden plans to mark Equal Pay Day as women are harder hit by COVID-19 than are their male counterparts.  Good for you, Joe, pandering like always.  Speaking of old Joe, earlier today he announced that “Kooky Kamala” Harris is now in charge of ‘solving the border crisis.’  (Note- continue building the wall and deport them all and that will help solve the ‘self-inflicted problem’ just as cutting off ALL government aid to illegals will.  Come on Methuselah, do your flipping job!).[vii]   Finally, when reporters asked Old Joe what he thought about North Korea’s recent missile tests, he said, ‘not much has changed.’
  67. 2021 Wednesday A: GOP NEWS– Utah Governor Spencer J. Cox, GOP, signed a measure that will put filters on porn sites within the state.  Excellent.  Meanwhile, GOP-lead states are fighting the good fight against Joe Biden’s increasingly insane policies, wish lists of liberal loony tunes spending and deprivation of the American people’s rights.  Elsewhere, Senator Chuck Grassley, R-IA, is pushing the Justice Department to continue the probe into perjury charges against the crackpot witnesses the Democrats trotted out to smear now-Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh.  Christine Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramirez, and Julie Swetnick should all be doing time in federal prisons for the bulls**t they pulled at his confirmation hearings back in 2018.  Get them, Chuck!  Finally, President Donald J. Trump is supporting Max Miller in his bid to unseat RINO Congressman Anthony Gonzalez in Ohio’s 16th congressional district.  Gonzalez voted to impeach President Trump if you recall.
  68. 2021 Wednesday B: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I–  The person who used to be known as Prince Harry, aka Mr. Meghan Markle, is taking a no-show gig as the ‘chief impact officer’ at a Silicon Valley startup, Betterup, that will help emotionally challenged individuals- like his wife and boss- overcome their issues.  Bravo, Harry, bravo.  Sort of like Hunter Biden working at Burisma.   Meanwhile, Senator Bernie Sanders says that he is ‘uncomfortable’ with the permanent ban placed on President Donald J. Trump by Twitter.  However, President Trump says he has ‘no plans to return to Twitter,’ seeing as how he is in the midst of creating his own untouchable social media platform.   Next, the New York Justice Department says the impeachment probe into Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo could continue for months.  So, charge him with the homicides of 15,000-20,000 people and get him out of office.  NOW.
  69. 2021 Wednesday C: FOREIGN/OVERSEAS NEWS–  Vladimir Putin’s chef- businessman Yevgeny Prigozhin- has written to the Federal Bureau of Investigation demanding he be removed from a most-wanted list.  The FBI put a bounty of $250,000 atop his head last month for his apprehension and extradition to the United States over bogus charges he somehow meddled in the 2016 Presidential Election on behalf of then-candidate Donald J. Trump.  He says the FBI must stop offering the reward as it violates several principles under human rights laws.  That’s Joe Biden for you, looking for fall guys he can blame for his own shortcomings such as Hunter Biden being in the hip pockets of both the Ukraine and China.  Meanwhile, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declares victory in the recent elections, but the majority is still unclear.   Elsewhere, a massive container ship in the Suez Canal has run aground due to high winds and is blocking passage to other ships.
  70. 2021 Wednesday D: SECOND AMENDMENT/GUNS NEWS– Representative Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district, says the Dems are ‘playing politics with our lives’ over their renewed drive to strip the American people of their guns.  (Note- we’d like to see them try.  First, there are going to be SO-O-O MANY gun thefts in this country, the cops will be tied up seeking them while secondly, it’s like what former NRA boss Charlton Heston used to say: ‘you can have my guns when you pry them out of my cold dead fingers.  Joe- NO one is going to surrender their guns, NO one.  Come and get them.  Chef Alvin).  Still, after the POS Syrian Muslim refugee Ahmad Al-Aliwi Alissa[viii] killed 10 WHITE people at the King Soopers Grocery Store in Boulder, Colorado, earlier this week, the Dems began to go bat-crap-crazy in pushing their gun-grabbing bills.   Joe Biden says he doesn’t have to ‘wait for Congress’ to begin stripping guns.  Go for it, Joe.
  71. 2021 Wednesday E: SECOND AMENDMENT/GUN NEWS II– Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer[ix] swears on his mother’s soul that the two firearms bills sent to him from the House of Representatives will receive swift attention.  “Kooky Kamala” Harris is urging swift hearing and passage of these gun-grabbing bills.  Interesting note- John Bachman of Newsmax says that the ‘Democrats are hypocrites.  They claim to hate guns, yet they spread guns all over the world’ selling them to thugs, criminals, terrorists, murderers, and other human trash.  He reminded his viewers of the Obama era “Fast and Furious” program that put military grade weapons into the hands of Mexican narcoterrorists.  
  72. 2021 Wednesday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– ‘The (Communist) Squad in Congress now claims that NOT supporting statehood for Washington, D.C., is RACIST.  The federal district was NEVER intended to be a state, girls, it was pulled together from several states so that NO single state would claim rights to sole ownership of the federal government.  No, just because lots of black folks live there does not make it ‘racist.’  Everyone living in the District of Columbia knows the score.  Shut the f**k up.  Next, Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell says that H.R. 1 is a bald political power grab.  Mitch- you should have supported President Donald J. Trump when you had the opportunity.  Now, shut the hell up.  Finally, the Wisconsin State Assembly authorizes an investigation into election fraud in the 2020 Presidential Election.
  73. 2021 Wednesday G: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– “Coincidence of the Day”- last week, Dr. Moncef Slaoui said that ‘President Donald J. Trump bears 90-percent of getting the COVID-19 vaccine programs underway what with Operation Warp Speed and Joe Biden just 10-percent.  Today, GlaxoSmithKline terminated Dr. Slaoui for purported sexual harassment allegations against him.  Wow.  Is this not amazing?  Cancel Culture strikes yet again.  Defend Trump and you lose your job.  Well, we defend Trump- WTF are YOU going to do to US?   Next, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says AstraZeneca soon to release an updated report on its coronavirus vaccines.   Meanwhile, Caribbean nations are begging the Biden administration NOT to be stingy with the coronavirus vaccines, to please, remember the countries on the U.S.’ third border.  (Note- when these countries do something about the horrendous foodborne illness visitors typically acquire upon eating their first meals there, we will send you vaccine.  Otherwise, STFU).  Finally, five years after his untimely death, famed rock star Prince’s ashes will go on public display.
  74. 2021 Wednesday H: ODDBALL AND HUMOROUS NEWS OF THE DAY– By a final vote of 52-48 (with RINO Senators Lisa Murkowski, RINO-AK, and Susan Collins, RINO-ME, confirmed the nomination of tranny (woof!) former Pennsylvania Health Secretary Rachel Levine to become the next assistant secretary of health.  Okie dokie.  Aren’t we proud as a nation!  Next, a chick with a dick,[x] Kataluna Enriquez has been crowned Miss Silver State USA, one step away from competing in the Miss Nevada USA pageant.  In yet another slap to the faces of women and girls, the tranny beat out numerous biological females to become the first beauty pageant winner with a dong swinging down under.  Folks, what the hell is going on?  Almost makes one wish the Chinese would take the country over.  Oh, speaking about ‘affronts’ to women, “Kooky Kamala” Harris and former President William Jefferson “Bill” Clinton are teaming up on a program with which to empower women.  Does anyone see the irony in this? [xi] (They are already receiving massive blowback for this bulls**t symposium).
  75. 2021 Wednesday I: U.S. BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE– Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, swears to ‘shut the Senate down’ if the Biden administration denies him access to the southern border.  Senator Marsha Blackburn was visiting the border today and she said, ‘what a mess.’  Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador says that ‘Joe Biden bears full responsibility for the ongoing border catastrophe.’  Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says that ‘Joe Biden’s rhetoric and his first day actions are responsible for the border catastrophe.’   Speaking of this crisis, this holocaust, Joe Biden has yet to name a nominee to head the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol.   Meanwhile, Congressman Henry Cuellar, D-TX 28th congressional district, says that the ‘migrants must be made known as to what awaits them on this side of the border.’  The border states must find a way with which they can finish the wall on their territory if they cannot do it on federal land.  Steve Bannon, where the hell are YOU and YOUR charity to fund border wall construction?
  76. 2021 Wednesday J: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 124,378,693 confirmed cases, +453,805, 2,736,980  confirmed deaths, +9,340, and 70,573,246 confirmed recoveries, +252,735.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,161,747 confirmed cases, up 57,678 from yesterday’s reporting, 549,411 confirmed deaths, UP 798, and 117,371,050 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them. 
  77. 2021 Wednesday K: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 220,944 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another three-and-a-half-weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  
  78. 2021 Wednesday L: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,648,021 confirmed cases, 57,909 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,950 confirmed cases, 454 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 359,290 confirmed cases, 5,249 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- the commonwealth of the American Samoa: currently, they have 3 confirmed cases, 0 confirmed deaths, and 3 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 829,689 confirmed cases, 6,122 confirmed deaths, and 808,869 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Pakistan, home of a large chapter of the Taliban: 637,042 cases of the virus, 13,965 confirmed deaths and 586,228 confirmed recoveries.

  80. 2021 Wednesday N: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE THREE STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.882 per gallon, $3.622 in Hawaii, and $3.324 in Washington state.    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,089,823,477,532 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.  Cloward and Piven running amok.  The country is going to crumble into nothingness thanks to the Democrats and their trillion-dollar bills.  Donald Trump- time for you to return to office.
  81. 2021 Wednesday O: Stay tuned for tonight’s Super Lotto and Powerball drawings.  First, here are the results for the Super Lotto Drawing #3545 with a pot of $31 million on the line: 10, 11, 13, 32, 38, and Mega 17.  Out of 111,151 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $19,815 apiece. Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #831 with a $220 million pot on the line: 04, 09, 17, 27, 38, and Power 18.   Out of 95,606 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $25,606. 
  82. 2021 Wednesday P: END OF THE NIGHT NEWS I– Tesla now says that its customers can buy their electric vehicles with Bitcoin.  Having bought $1.5 billion in Bitcoin several months back, any cars bought with Bitcoin will remain in their Bitcoin account- they are not going to convert it into dollars.  Next, the Joint Chiefs of Staff spokesperson said that yes, indeed, North Korea did fire at least one projectile into the East China Sea.  That’s Kim for you- NO respect for Joe Biden.  Meanwhile, as 14 states sue the Biden administration for its almost immediate crackdown on all energy projects on federal lands, the U.S. Department of the Interior announces that it’s going to review all existing and applications for fossil fuel drilling on federal lands.  With a Norwegian-Native American in charge, Debra Haaland, you know there won’t be any new drilling and many existing oil and natural gas leases will be shut down.  Windmills and solar farms.  
  83. 2021 Wednesday Q: END OF THE NIGHT NEWS II– Virginia Governor Ralph “Black Face” Northam signs a bill that will end capital punishment in the state.  Since its inception as a British colony, there have been 1,400 executions.  Since the U.S. Supreme Court reinstated the death penalty in 1976, there have been 113 executions which ranks the Old Dominion State second only to the Lone Star State in the number of executions carried out.  Still, Governor “Black Face” says the death penalty should be available for especially heinous crimes but throughout history, the death penalty has fallen mostly on minorities, the mentally ill, and the poor.  Elsewhere, Intel is going to build two chip-manufacturing plants in Arizona, so says CEO Pat Gelsinger.  Not only will it produce chips for its own purposes, but it will also serve as a ‘foundry,’ which means it will build microchips for other companies.  The company will qualify for about $90 million in tax credits when construction is completed, and it will also provide at least 3,000 high-paying jobs.  Even better, it will become an alternative source for chip manufacturing so if Asia craps out or withholds chips from Western nations, problem solved.  
  84. 2021 Wednesday R: END OF THE NIGHT NEWS III– U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken visited NATO headquarters in Brussels, Belgium, today and informed our allies that ‘America was back’ and that we would not put our ‘allies in a position of ‘us or them,’ meaning- we guess- that if the Germans want to buy natural gas from the Russians, the nation against whom the victorious Western allies created the North Atlantic Treaty Organization to defend against- then so be it.  It is what it is.  Meanwhile, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg invited the Russians to return to having an observatory role in the organization.  Secretary Blinken wants the organization to remain strong against both Russian and Chinese hegemony and that if the Chi-Coms cause problems for one country, they cause them for all countries within the group.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, they blasted the U.S. today for everything from being a racist nation to its out-of-control spending.  Ouch.
  85. 2022 Thursday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The reformed Band released their next album, “High on the Hog,” on February 27, 1996.  Once again, the group performed numerous covers but what the heck- they performed them with verve, class, and a great deal of sass.  The Band features Rick Danko (guitars, bass, vocals), Levon Helm (drums, bass, vocals, and mandolins), Garth Hudson (keyboards, accordions, saxophones, even vocals), Richard Manuel (piano on one track), Jim Weider (guitars/vocals), Rick Bell (keyboards/accordions/vocals), Randy Ciarlante (vocals/drums/percussion), along with guest spots by loads of other talented and well-known musicians, at least 15-20 of them.  While it’s challenging not to have major songwriter and guitarist Robbie Robertson in the fold, it is what it is.  We hope you will seek this album out as it is the first of a trio of new works to come.  We think you will enjoy it as much as we do.

[i] We hope to promote the music of the Bee Gees within the next 3-4 years.

[ii] We promoted the music of Spooky Tooth, Mott the Hoople, and Widowmaker- among other interconnected bands beginning on Friday, 25-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We hope you will check out this collection of great rock music.  Even the worst albums among them beats the crap out of any bull crap music one hears today.

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

[iv] We look forward to doing the Clash but expect to do Supertramp first, then Pink Floyd, then Electric Light Orchestra/the Move, then Yes, and then perhaps the Clash.  They are among the amazing British rock bands of the 1970s and deserve to be acknowledged as such.

[v]When the time will be right for the presentation of Elvis Presley is unknown but if we are still going strong in the 2030s, we expect to do so.  Please, stay tuned.

[vi] We shared the music of the Rolling Stones (and the group’s individual members) beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members solo projects.

[vii] Feeble Old Joe said that he would take the news media with him when he went to do a tour of the southern border.  Now that he has appointed “Kooky Kamala” Harris to do ‘something’ about the border, there no longer is a need to take the media there to see what the hell is occurring down there.

[viii] Speaking of this piece of desert dirt, amazing how all the left-wing news agencies and pundits stopped with the shooter being a WHITE man and then NOT reporting his name so they can suck up to their beloved Muslims.  We have heard unverified reports of the scumbag yelling “Allah Akbar” while he walked up to and then shot his victims at close range.  What if one of the victims had a gun and put a round into the shooter’s face?  That would be awesome.  He had rants all over Facebook blasting those whom he believed were ‘racist against Islam’ and even worse, the vaunted FBI had Mr. Alissa on a ‘watch list.’  Lot of good FBI watchlists are, huh?  Still, losers such as Ilhan Omar, DS-MN 5th congressional district, Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, DS-MI 13th congressional district, and ‘Baldy,’ Ayanna Pressley, DS-MA 7th congressional district all zipped their generally flapping lips so as not to have to admit the scumbag Alissa was one of theirs.

[ix] “Prune Face” would be a good alternative name for Cryin’ Chuck seeing as how we have labeled House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi as such.  Dick Tracy had some cool villains.

[x] If you want to see ‘chicks with dicks,’ come to Los Angeles, California, and take a trip down the Sunset Strip.

[xi] “Kooky Kamala” slept her way to the top beginning with powerful Golden State Democrat Willie Brown and Bill, well, everyone knows about Bill.  We don’t have to list all the transgressions against women this guy committed and who can forget that he flew on Jeffrey Epstein’s private plane, what was it- 19 times?  Yikes.

61. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, MARCH 02, 2022

1897 Tuesday: President Grover Cleveland vetoed legislation that would have required a literacy test for immigrants entering the country, which would have been good- especially in 2021-2022. That’s Democrats for you.

  55. 2008 Sunday: Following an ongoing five-day Israeli military operation against the ever-belligerent Palestinians, the PLO reports at least 112 of their terrorists, uh, we mean ‘citizens’ have been killed along with untold numbers of wounded.  Stop attacking Israel and your people would not be getting killed.  Morons.  Israeli peace activists protest Israel defending itself while Mahmoud Abbas suspends ties with Jerusalem over his people starting something they can never finish.  The Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni says there are ‘No moral equations between Israelis and Palestinians.’  Thus, the world should stand with the Israelis.

  61. 2016 Wednesday: According to On This Day, the longest scheduled commercial flight occurred, one that flew from Dubai to Auckland, a distance of 8,824 miles.  The Emirates A380 took 17 hours and 15 minutes from wheels up to wheels down.  Wow.  Meanwhile, the government of the Philippines lodges official protests against the Chi-Coms for intimidating their fishing vessels in the South China Sea.  The Chi-Coms are militarizing reefs and atolls, claiming them as ‘islands’ so as to control the international waters by claiming them as territorial waters.  We must nip this one in the bud.  Elect Donald J. Trump president.   Speaking of Trump, the GOP establishment is desperate to thwart him from winning the 2016 GOP presidential nomination.
  62. 2017 Thursday: Much to the horror of President Donald J. Trump and to Trump’s voters, new Attorney-General Jeff Sessions recuses himself from the Russian collusion scam investigation saying that he had ‘met with the Russian ambassador.’  Huh.  Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, and numerous other Democrats ALL had met with the Russian ambassador on far too many occasions yet there we were, the beginning of a fraudulent investigation that pitted American against American.  Shame.
  63. 2018 Friday: At a funeral before an invitation-only crowd of about 2,000 in Charlotte, N.C., the children of the Reverend Billy Graham remembered “America’s Pastor” as a man devoted to spreading the Gospel, and one who lived his life at home as he preached it in stadiums.  Meanwhile, a nor’easter pounded the Atlantic coast with hurricane-force winds and sideways rain and snow, grounding flights and leaving more than 2 million homes and businesses without power from North Carolina to Maine.

  66. 2021 Tuesday: DAY 42 OF THE BIDEN REGIME: GOD HELP US!  Today, FBI Director Christopher Wray sat before members of the U.S. Senate shagging questions on what we know about the now-infamous Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021, the one in which, Antifa- and- Black Lives Matter infiltrators urged on Trump supporters to go berserk, assault the Capitol, and run amok.  Whenever anyone asked Director Wray about LEFTWING violence, such as what occurred over the course of the summer of 2020 and into the fall, he knew little to nothing, but when it came to so-called RIGHTWING violence, he was well-versed.  The Democrats on the Senate panel directed the choir and Director Wray sung loudly, with gusto, to the point that people watching on television had a thought: “It seems Director Wray knows little to nothing  How about next time you want answers from the FBI, why don’t you ask whoever is the TRUE BOSS of the once-proud law enforcement organization?”[vi] 
  67. 2021 Tuesday A: Yet another woman comes out and accuses rapidly sinking New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo of behaving in an indecent sexual manner.  It’s gotten to the point that the so-called “Love Gov” has had to offer a half-assed apology of sorts, claiming he’s just a ‘joker,’ that he ‘likes to horse around’ and other such bull crap.  The “Lov Gov” has also hired a criminal defense attorney now that it appears he is in real trouble over his shenanigans with sending COVID-19-infected patients back into the Empire State’s nursing homes where they murdered thousands of elderly and vulnerable people.  Cuomo is in trouble for his executive order that set this horrendous crime in motion, one in which the ill made others sick and then when they were going to DIE, they bundled them into medical transports, took them BACK to the hospitals where they added to the numbers of Chi-Vi deaths in the hospitals and covered up what Cuomo did to the poor people in the nursing homes.  We hope to see this POS wearing an orange jumpsuit busting up rocks soon.
  68. 2021 Tuesday B: The state of Oklahoma is seeking to get the National Rifle Association to relocate to their state.  Meanwhile, the NRA says that the Biden administration wants to bypass the committee process in Congress so it can force harsh gun control measures onto the American people.
  69. 2021 Tuesday C: A recent poll says at least 52-percent of the Grand Old Party want President Donald J. Trump to be the standard-bearer in 2024.  Meanwhile, Wyoming state Senator Anthony Bouchard has officially announced he is going to primary highly unpopular GOP Congresswoman Liz Cheney in 2022.  Unless the Democrats rally to the side of this RINO, her head is going to be gracing the top of the congressman’s fireplace. 
  70. 2021 Tuesday D: Congressman Jim Jordan, R-OH, calls for a House probe into the “Cancel Culture.” 
  71. 2021 Tuesday E: A recent poll says that Joe Biden has a 61-percent approval rate.  The poll obviously is bulls**t folks because very few have seen the ‘46th president’ stumbling around much less have heard anything he says.  In an era of Deep Fakes, most people except the disciples of all things ‘news’ has seen or heard this illusive guy.  He is akin to trolls living beneath the bridge, pixies and fairies roaming the woods, sprites cavorting about the trees, NO one has seen or heard from him so please, don’t try to scam us with bulls**t polls.
  72. 2021 Tuesday F: Some people are hopeful the U.S. Supreme Court will weigh in on election laws in Arizona that could affect voting nationwide.  Don’t expect much, folks, the Dems don’t need to stack the U.S. Supreme Court when they have John Roberts as chief justice.  What a failure, what a disgrace, what a letdown the man is. 
  73. 2021 Tuesday G: Reports along the southern border say that the tidal wave of illegal alien teens and toddlers swarming across the border is straining facilities with which to house them.   We believe Joe Biden should continue building the wall, that anti-vehicle and anti-personnel trenches should be constructed, barbed wire, minefields, and other obstacles laid in plus the seeding of the Rio Grande with baby alligators scooped up from Florida, Mississippi, and Louisiana.  What is occurring on the southern border is a crime and whether you love you some illegal aliens or you don’t, what is happening to these people is inhumane, horrendous, and evil.  Still, the federal government could pay American citizens $2,500 per month to take in one illegal alien brat. 
  74. 2021 Tuesday H: Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is expanding access to the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine to all first-responders, law enforcement, K-12 students, and to all who are vulnerable to the Chi-Com Virus.  In other interesting news, Senator Mitt Romney is recovering from a fall that left him black and blue he suffered while visiting family in Boston.  We remember a similar incident when Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-NV, turned up all beat up and he claimed exercise equipment got the best of him.  It later turned out that one of his brothers got the ‘best of him.’
  75. 2021 Tuesday I: Democratic lawmakers are forging ahead with a plan with which to make Puerto Rico a state.   We already know they’re trying to make the District of Columbia a state which is bull crap.  D.C. was created so that the nation’s capital would NOT be in any particular state.  Ah, well, we say if we’re going to make territories and possessions into states, might as well make the U.S. Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Marianas, and even Midway Island and the Johnson Atoll into states, too.  We say, WTF?  Imagine ALL the new senators with which, the Democrats could pack the U.S. Senate.  Hell, pretty soon various counties will be breaking apart from states and becoming states of their own.  Again, why NOT?  
  76. 2021 Tuesday J: An SUV in Southern California close to the Mexican border crashed into a semi-tractor-trailer rig.  Inside the SUV were 27 people- ILLEGAL FLIPPING ALIENS, PEOPLE- 15 of whom died in the mishap.  Some say ‘they got what they deserved’ while others say if we had secure borders, illegal aliens stuffed into ‘clown cars’ would not be careening all over the highways, crashing into cars and trucks driven by Americans.  Joe Biden, DEFEND THE F**KING BORDERS!  We don’t want to see people killed on  the nation’s highways but until you act against coyotes and begin imprisoning- if not shooting them on the spot– these kinds of tragedies are going to continue.  ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
  77. 2021 Tuesday K: In other Joe Biden news, the ‘Biden administration’ is now looking into how to give reparations to black folks because of slavery in the past.  The question is, will ALL blacks qualify for ‘reparations,’ i.e., the modern-day equivalent of ’40 acres and a mule’ updated or will it just be blacks who can prove descent from a slave?  Will all NON-BLACK people, i.e., whites, Latinos, Asians, and Native Americans going to foot the bill or are just white folks going to foot this bill?  In interracial marriages, are white spouses going to be able to scrawl their names on a check and hand it over to the black spouse (or give them the credit card) and will that be the end of it?  What about interracial people who boast numerous bloodlines, how is the federal government going to determine this?  It is insane.  Will the government also inform the recipients of the SLAVE REPARATIONS that they will have to pay taxes on the money they receive?   NOTE- here is what WE say: like the $15 per hour minimum wage, this will never happen because once it does, the issue is removed from the arsenal of leftwing issues, NEVER to be used again.  IF you look at history, answer this question, with honesty- how many problems do liberals ever truly solve?
  78. 2021 Tuesday L: New York state lawmakers have stripped Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the “Love Gov” of his pandemic dictatorial powers.  Whoa.  Dreadful things are coming your way there “Killer Cuomo.”
  79. 2021 Tuesday M: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 114,706,724 confirmed cases, +356,113, 2,544,852, confirmed deaths, +7,987, and 64,781,391 confirmed recoveries, +250,043.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 28,998,700 confirmed cases, up 62,539 from yesterday’s reporting, 521,441 confirmed deaths, UP 1,706, and 16,992,502 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile drooling POS.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 191,256 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, STOP SENDING U.S. vaccines overseas, use them here at home you reprobate scumbag.  NOT OUR PRESIDENT!
  80. 2021 Tuesday N: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,573,588 confirmed cases, 52,521 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,000 confirmed cases, 439 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries- NOTE: Hawaii has not updated their stats in nearly a week.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 343,746 confirmed cases, 5,038 confirmed deaths (same as yesterday), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Kansas: currently, they have 397,436 confirmed cases, 4,743 confirmed deaths, and 312,758 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 779,958 confirmed cases, 5,760 confirmed deaths, and 735,850 confirmed recoveries.
  81. 2021 Tuesday O: In one of the greatest pieces of news we have had in a long time, Governor Gregg Abbott of Texas says the Lone Star State will be open for business in one week.  ALL businesses, no matter who or what they are, may reopen and even better, the mask mandate is NO more.  Of course, liberals are wetting their panties, but it is what it is, America is coming back.  As soon as we evict losers like Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Lov Gov, of New York, and Frankenstein-headed Governor Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan (all she is missing are the bolts on her neck), the country can reopen wide, and we can move beyond the Chinese Virus.  In other Chi-Vi news, American diplomats going to communist China on behalf of the Biden administration are being forced to undergo the fearsome Chi-Com COVID-19 anal swab.  Tell them to go f**k themselves.
  82. 2021 Tuesday P: Speaking of the Chi-Vi, aka COVID-19, the Catholic Archdiocese of New Orleans is opposed to the Johnson & Johnson Wuhan Virus vaccine because  it uses cells derived from abortions in both its manufacture and its testing.  IF the Catholic Church is against the Johnson & Johnson vaccine then we are against it, too.  Speaking of the J & J vaccine, with only 3.7 million does offered, Merck is stepping in to convert two of its U.S. manufacturing facilities to begin mass-producing and packaging of the vaccine.  As we said, we can wait. 
  83. 2021 Tuesday Q:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,391.52, DOWN 143.99 points (-0.46%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,358.79, DOWN 230.04 points (-1.69%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,870.29, DOWN 31.53 points (-0.81%).  The price of GOLD is $1,732.80 per troy oz., -0.80 (-0.05%) while the price of SILVER is $26.80 per troy ounce, -0.08 (-0.29%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,202.20 per troy oz, -12.20 (-1.0\0%) while the price of COPPER is $4.19 per pound, -0.03 (-0.78%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,368.60 per troy oz, +19.60 (+0.83%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $59.68 per barrel, -0.07 (-0.12%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.62.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000021.   In Taiwanese dollars, one greenback equals 27.85. 
  84. 2021 Tuesday R: The House Democrats continue slamming one bill after another.  Today, they introduced a wide-ranging (and unbelievably expensive, we suspect) climate bill which means MORE slush fund cash for Democrats to stick their hands in.   In other news, FBI Director Christopher Wray won’t release the cause of Capitol Hill police officer Brian Sicknick.  Even the family does not know the cause of their husband’s and father’s death.  Many believe he suffered a stroke on January 6, 2021, when he was blasted in the face with bear repellant.  The left wants everyone to believe that Officer Sicknick had his head stoved in with a fire extinguisher, but no evidence of that occurrence exists.  Sadly, he was quickly cremated, and his autopsy records sealed.  Left-wing governments and Islamic extremists ALWAYS require martyrs.[vii]   In other interesting news, far-left hatemonger Neera Tanden is OUT as the next White House Office of Management and Budget boss.  Her past hateful speech in social media came back to bite her on her skinny ass.  Ouch!   Finally, Democrats want to end qualified immunity for police officers.
  85. 2021 Tuesday S: Senator Martin Heinrich, D-NM, and Congressman Darren Soto, D-FL, have authored a bill to fast-track Puerto Rican statehood.  As we have said, just give statehood to Guam, U.S. Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Northern Marianas, Johnston Atoll, Midway Island, and other specks in the Pacific Ocean we claim.  Imagine all the senators the Democrats could have.   Meanwhile, Senator Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says, he has the votes to pass the Biden Porkulus $1.9 trillion COVID-19 Relief Bill but hey- still NO $2,000 checks per U.S. citizen. 
  86. 2021 Tuesday T: The National Security Commission says that if the United States does not immediately pick up the pace, the Chi-Coms are going to win the race for artificial intelligence and can then use it to subjugate the rest of the world.  We had better get our act in order.  Elsewhere, the Nigerian military frees 279 kidnapped schoolgirls, seized by Boko Haram from Jangebe Town.  There are questions as to whether the Nigerians paid a ransom for them or not.  Meanwhile, Boko Haram attacked a favorite target of theirs, the town of Dikwa where they have a military outpost and humanitarian aid.  Apparently, the jihadists overran the town.  No word on casualties.  
  87. 2021 Tuesday U: In other Chris Wray news, the FBI director said that ‘several of the more than 300 people arrested for the Capitol Hill Riot of January 06, 2021, have ties to right-wing militias.’  He also said that since he became director in 2017, white extremism threats have more than tripled.  He also said there is NO evidence of fraud in the 2020 Presidential Election.  In Texas, a judge was arrested along with some other scumbags for committing election fraud in that state. 
  88. 2021 Tuesday V: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1638 with a jackpot of $43 million on the line: 04, 08, 13, 34, 64, and Mega 18.  Out of 52,291 winning tickets, the highest were THREE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $4,732 apiece.
  89. 2022 Wednesday: Friends, stick around for tonight’s Super Lotto and Powerball drawings…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The tertiary effort by the Band- “Stage Fright” came out on August 17, 1970, and was a wonderful addition to the band’s growing discography.  Once again, the band featured the lineup of Rick Danko (bass, vocals, and fiddle), Robbie Robertson (guitars and vocals), Levon Helm (drums, percussion, vocals, mandolins, and tambourines), Richard Manuel (pianos, organs, and vocals), and Garth Hudson (keyboards and saxophones).   The album contained two big hits- the title track and “The Shape I’m In.”  We hope you will seek this one out and consider adding it to your collection as there’s nothing better than this glorious group.  Ask anyone who’s seen them in their heyday, and you will understand just how legendary and amazing they were.  You will love them just as we do.  Enjoy.

TODAY IN HISTORY, WEDNESDAY MARCH 02, 2022, BLOG POST #4,464

PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.

Tuesday, March 02, 2021, Today in History:

WE THANK EVERYONE FOR JOINING US AT WORDPRESS.COM AND FOR AIDING US IN CONTINUING TO DO THE WORK WE TOOK UPON OURSELVES MORE THAN A DECADE AGO

We feel compelled to share with our new readers that we are an OPINION SITE and not a NEWS SITE although we do report the news.  If anything, we are big history buffs which is why we have been going strong since early 2009…


Wednesday, March 02, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We definitely hope to present the music of ALL the classic Motown bands- including the famed Four Tops- sometime within the next decade.  Please, stay tuned for further developments.

[ii] We began promoting the music of the Velvet Underground starting on Tuesday, 18-March-2014 through Wednesday, 09-April-2014.  At the time we promoted this famous New York City rock band, we failed to share the music of the man himself, Lou Reed.  We hope to rectify that mistake when we return to promoting American bands again.  Thank you for your patience.

[iii] Not sure when we will begin promoting the music of Todd Rundgren but one day, we sure as heck will so please stay tuned.

[iv] We should have promoted the music of Paris at the same time we did Fleetwood Mac.  Sadly, we will promote Paris when we do Jethro Tull, Wild Turkey, and Blodwyn Pig.  Paris created two fine albums in the 1970s.  Besides Sales, the band featured guitarist/vocalist Bob Welch and bassist/keyboardist Glenn Cornick.

[v] We are not sure when AC/DC will be in the works but you bet they will be at some point, possibly in 2027-2028. 

[vi] Director Wray is one of the most adept practitioners of the fine art of NEVER answering questions.  It should shock everyone concerned how this man seemingly does not know very much about any topic at hand other than that white people are generally the culprits.  Much like Jen Psaki, he either is too ill-informed or unfit for the job held. 

[vii] The Soviets had their Pavlik Morozov, a boy who ratted out his parents as not being down with the struggle.  In every square in every town and city, statues of Pavlik Morozov were erected. 

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

350. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, DECEMBER 16, 2021

75. 2020 Wednesday I: Internal documents released on the fly from the World Health Organization, the corrupt organization in the pocket of wannabe global dictator Xi Jinping, show that their distribution plan for release of the Wuhan Virus vaccine is doomed to fail.

DAY THREE HUNDRED-AND-THIRTY-ONE OF THE BIDEN REGIME

  63. 2017 Saturday: The Trump transition team accuses Robert S. Mueller of illegally obtaining campaign emails.  The Mueller investigation is obtaining ‘evidence of collusion between President Donald J. Trump and Vladimir Putin in unlawful ways.’  Since the evidence does not exist, it would suggest that the special counsel is manufacturing his own evidence.
  64. 2018 Sunday: With the threat of a partial government shutdown looming, the White House dug in on its demand for $5 billion to build a border wall as congressional Democrats stood firm against it.  Meanwhile, over increasing scandals, U.S. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke announces he is going to step down from his position.
  65. 2019 Monday: Congressional Democrats continued trying to find their collective balls to go into the House Rules Committee the next day so they could hammer out the rules for the impeachment trial of President Donald J. Trump.    Meanwhile, Democrats running for the nomination of their party are begging DNC Chair Tom Perez to change the rules for inclusion for the January and February debates.  The rules’ demand for polling and donation numbers to meet certain criteria is preventing many of them from being able to participate.   
  66. 2020 Wednesday: Texas wants to become the home of the U.S. Space Force Command.  Next, President Donald J. Trump doubles down on his claims of FRAUD in the 2020 Presidential Election which are becoming clearer and clearer by the day.  He says, “Bad things happened in the 2020 Presidential Election” and must be addressed.  He also told Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY, that it’s ‘too soon to give up on the election’ even as Mitch and his leadership are urging their fellow GOP senators NOT to contest the election in early January.  However, in January 2017, House Democrats interrupted the proceedings no less than ELEVEN times in their bid to stop Trump from becoming the 45th president and to secure the election for Hillary Rodham Clinton.
  67. 2020 Wednesday A:  The American Civil Liberties Union calls for a release of half of ALL inmates in U.S. prisons and jails because of the Chi-Vi threat.  They probably want all illegal aliens released, too.  Let’s deport them ASAP.  Meanwhile, federal prosecutors indict Canadian pervert Peter Nygard, a fashion designer, on multiple charges of sex-trafficking.  Hmmm, seems like we have a junior Jeffrey Epstein here.
  68. 2020 Wednesday B: The U.S. Senate Homeland Security Committee chaired by Ron Johnson, R-WI, and ranking member, Sen. Gary Peters (who was beaten by John James in November but who maintains his seat thanks to rampant voter fraud in his state), D-MI.  Witness Christopher Krebs, recently fired by President Trump still maintains ‘no signs of foreign interference in the election’ but that ‘fraud is a criminal matter.’  He also states that ‘rumor control is extremely important.’   Chairman Ron Johnson says the “GOP is not peddling Russian disinformation’ and tells his colleague Senator Peters ‘to stop lying, that all he does is lie and to stop spreading Russian disinformation, himself.’  Amen.  Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, then asks a question regarding ‘if non-legislators changing election laws without the involvement of state legislators is okay’ which everyone with half-a-brain or more knows is NOT.
  69. 2020 Wednesday C: Regarding the Senate Homeland Security Committee meeting on the rampant voter fraud that occurred in the 2020 Presidential and Senatorial elections, Christopher Krebs says it’s ‘important to use paper ballots so there is a paper trail which would have provided the necessary evidence as to whether there was cheating or there was not.’  Amen to that, too. We also learn that Pennsylvania was among the most corrupt states with more dead people, more illegal aliens, more multiple voters, more made-up voters, and more underage voters than anywhere else in the country.  Send Gov. Wolf to prison. 
  70. 2020 Wednesday D: In the same Senate committee hearings as outlined in the previous two points, Senator James Lankford, R-OK, says back in 2016, ’32-percent of the American people believed that Vladimir Putin and the Russkies interfered in the U.S. Presidential Election to help Donald Trump and to hurt Hillary Rodham Clinton.  We did hearings then so what is wrong with holding hearings now, especially when 75 million plus Americans voted for Donald Trump’ and as Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, says ‘are not going to just go away no matter how much Democrats want them to.’  Amen to that, too.  In 2016, Dems weren’t going to move on whereas NOW, they want everyone to move on and to embrace “Pro-China Joe” Biden and “Kooky Kamala” Harris as our next president and vice president.  F**k them.
  71. 2020 Wednesday E: Senator James Lankford, R-OK, also says that his state as were numerous others done with vote counting on Election Night as the country always has but look in amazement at other states STILL counting votes more than two weeks after Election Day and stating, ‘we don’t know how many ballots are left to be counted.’  Senator Lankford also points out to the Eric system- the Electronic Voter Information Center used by 30 states to monitor if people are voting more than once or in a series of places.  All states should be using this.  Senator Lankford also says that in HIS state, voter fraudsters are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law while in states with rampant voter fraud like Nevada has yet to punish anyone even with 42,000 dead voters having voted.  The Trump campaign witness and adviser Jesse Binall concurred that NO one has faced prosecution in the Silver State.
  72. 2020 Wednesday F: Regarding the election, Wisconsin Election Commission Director Meagan Wolfe calls for legislation for election reform in her corrupt state due to widespread irregularities across her state.  Meanwhile, President Trump wants a special counsel appointed to investigate Hunter Biden and perhaps his father.  Elsewhere, we learn that the Senate races in Georgia are tied- David Perdue v. Jon Ossoff and Kelly Loeffler v. Islamist ‘Reverend’ Raphael Warnock.  Mitch: we would be inclined to donate more cash to help the GOP candidates if you would stand with President Trump, you RINO POS.  Meanwhile, Cardinal Raymond Leo Burke says that ‘the Democrats are seeking a GREAT RESET in the United States with which to force Marxism down our throats.
  73. 2020 Wednesday G: National security adviser Robert O’Brien cuts his European trip short to rush home to deal with the ongoing Russian-Chi-Com-and-other foreign intel agents hacking into the U.S. federal government as well as taking down YouTube, Gmail, and Google.  Meanwhile, White House counsel urged President Trump not to fire POS FBI Director Christopher Wray.   Finally, Ken Starr will square off with Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg in a Texas court regarding Facebook’s interference in the 2020 Elections and the vast amounts of cash Zuckerberg dropped on various entities in the election ostensibly to help them in their efforts to (1) steal the elections and (2) to censor information favorable to President Trump and the GOP.  Send this punk to prison.  The Amistad Project is the source of the report on Zuckerberg.  Speaking of punks, it’s official, “Pro-China Joe” Biden names Mayor Pete Buttigieg to be his secretary of Transportation.   Princess, uh, Mayor Pete will become the first openly gay person to head a Cabinet position.
  74. 2020 Wednesday H: In other news, scientists suggest that kangaroos can learn to communicate with human beings.  We believe every creature on Earth is evolving but evolution is extremely slow, so no one truly notices it.  Next, Major-League Baseball finally does something it should have done decades ago and that is to elevate the Negro Leagues to MLB status so all records and information will become a part of MLB history.  God bless you!  Elsewhere, feel-good liberal Dodge City, Kansas, Mayor Joyce Warshaw resigns her post after claiming she has received ‘so much email and mail threatening her life over her support of a comprehensive mask mandate.’  Wah, wah, wah, STFU.   In other news, the dictator of Turkey- Tayyip Recep Erdogan calls sanctions emplaced upon his country because it bought a Russian defense system to be an ‘attack on his nation.’  Dude, you need to shut up and GO.
  75. 2020 Wednesday I: Internal documents released on the fly from the World Health Organization, the corrupt organization in the pocket of wannabe global dictator Xi Jinping, show that their distribution plan for release of the Wuhan Virus vaccine is doomed to fail.  Elsewhere, that ignoramus Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Sandy Cortez, aka Baby Evita, aka AOC, aka “The Fly,” says ‘both Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer need to go.  NOW.’
  76. 2020 Wednesday J: Here are the latest stats for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, straight out of Wuhan, China: 74,087,090 confirmed cases, UP by 1,865,456 cases, 1,646,687 confirmed deaths, UP by 34,673 deaths, and 41,893,773 confirmed recoveries, DOWN by 5,324,462 recoveries from yesterday’s figures- curious.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 16,961,262 confirmed cases, UP by 273,102 new cases, 308,762 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,280 new deaths, and 7,688,057 confirmed recoveries, UP by 203,304 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt POSs).  Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 360,630 confirmed cases, 3,014 confirmed deaths, and 338,784 confirmed recoveries.
  77. 2020 Wednesday K: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 1,671,081 confirmed cases, 21,481 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 19,590 confirmed cases, 278 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION OF confirmed recoveries anymore- what is up with YOU, Gov. Ige, you Democrat hack.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 212,488 confirmed cases, 3,084 confirmed deaths, but like California, the gorilla-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, Florida: 1,155,355 confirmed number of cases, 20,480 confirmed deaths, and sadly, no mention of the confirmed number of recoveries- thank you.   Speaking of the Yellow Fever 2020, a healthcare worker in Alaska was given the vaccine injection and immediately began having harsh reactions to the drug and had to be placed into the hospital.
  78. 2020 Wednesday L:  2020 Wednesday E: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,154.54, DOWN 44.77 points (-0.15%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,658.19, UP 63.13 points (+0.50%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,701.17, UP 6.55 points (+0.18%).  The price of GOLD is $1,867.30 per troy oz., +8.20 (+0.24%) while the price of SILVER is $25.44 per troy ounce, +0.393 (+1.57%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,040.00 per troy oz, +4.60 (+0.44%) while the price of COPPER is $3.56 per pound, +0.005 (+0.14%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,348.20 per troy oz, +24.20 (+1.04%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $47.86 per barrel, +0.04 (+0.08%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.53 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.86.
  79. 2020 Wednesday M: Stay tuned for tonight’s Super Lotto #3517 Draw with a $14 million jackpot and the Powerball #803 Draw with $277 million up for grabs.  Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto first: 04, 06, 11, 12, 17, and Mega 09.  Out of 97,848 winning tickets, the highest winners were 26 people who had four numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $604 apiece.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball: 04, 23, 37, 61, 67, and Powerball 07.  Out of 95,182 winning tickets, the highest winners were 3 people who had four numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $15,585 apiece. 
  80. 2020 Wednesday N: Final news for the night: Fosun Pharma seeks to buy 100 million does of Biontech’s Chi-Vi vaccine for shipment to mainland communist China.   Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Senator Tom Cotton, R-Arkansas, is pushing a bill designed to punish Beijing for their annual $1 billion industry of forced organ harvesting from prisoners and members of religious groups.  No wonder the communists in Beijing HATE Senator Cotton.  The Stop Force Organs Harvesting Act would put the Chinese Communist Party thugs on notice that they must stop this egregious human rights abuse.  Elsewhere, Vice President Mike Pence will take the Beijing Bat Flu vaccine on live TV at the White House.  Particulars to come.  Finally, a federal court tells Ohio they cannot block trannys seeking to change their birth certificates to reflect their ‘identities.’
  81. 2020 Wednesday O:  Friends, this is where we were at one year ago today: we know the Chi-Coms, their lackeys Canada, Russia, Iran, Venezuela, Cuba, and other assorted Third World s-hole countries- as well as their stooges in the Democratic Party- are up to no-good.  Stick around to discover crimes they’ve committed today…         
  82. 2021 Thursday: Everyone knows the drill…stick around to discover the truth along with all of us- you will be glad you did.

ENDNOTES:

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

[ii] We shared the music of the Hollies with the world beginning on Monday, 29-August-2016 through Thursday, 03-November-2016.  We encourage everyone to check out the music of this well-known British Invasion band. 

[iii] We look forward to sharing the music of this famed, “Little Ol’ Band from Texas,” ZZ Top sometime in the next decade.

58. 2020 Tuesday B: Pennsylvania certifies the results of the 2020 presidential election as does Nevada later in the day. Meanwhile, as ‘president-elect pro-China Joe’ Biden continues naming names of those whom he is inviting to serve in his Cabinet, the fake news media continues celebrating each of the aged far-left political hacks, many of whom served President Barack Hussein Obama and then-Vice President Joe Biden. There goes the country.

Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump says he will ‘never concede’ as long evidence of voter fraud continues coming to light even though he has authorized the GSA to begin the transition process for the incoming ‘Biden-Harris administration.’  
  57. 2020 Tuesday A: President Trump announces his firm stance against the renaming of U.S. military bases named after Confederate generals.  Good for you.  Meanwhile, the U.S. announces a list of 85 communist Chinese companies all with ties to the Chi-Com military.  We should do business with none of these rat-eating companies.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, the U.S. announces it will stand with both Vietnam and the Philippines when it comes to defending the independence of the South Chia Sea, a region of the world in which, the Chi-Coms construct manmade islands and then declare them sovereign territory.  Screw these communist bastards.
  58. 2020 Tuesday B: Pennsylvania certifies the results of the 2020 presidential election as does Nevada later in the day.  Meanwhile, as ‘president-elect pro-China Joe’ Biden continues naming names of those whom he is inviting to serve in his Cabinet, the fake news media continues celebrating each of the aged far-left political hacks, many of whom served President Barack Hussein Obama and then-Vice President Joe Biden.  There goes the country.  Meanwhile, whacked-out California Congresswoman Maxine Waters wants to investigate President Trump for being a ‘criminal.’  What a flipping nut!
  59. 2020 Tuesday C: Here are today’s Chi-Com Horseshoe Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 59,597,658 confirmed cases, UP by 527,170 cases, 1,405,788 confirmed deaths, UP by 11,094 deaths, and 38,097,904 confirmed recoveries, UP by 406,524 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 12,637,714 confirmed cases, UP by 165,391 new cases, 263,025 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,785 new deaths, and 6,344,390 confirmed recoveries, UP by 55,061 new recoveries.   
  60. 2020 Tuesday D: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 1,145,291 confirmed cases, 18,789 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 17,483 confirmed cases, 233 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 156,035 confirmed cases, 2,781 confirmed deaths, but like California, the thuggish 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, Oklahoma: 180,610 confirmed number of cases, 1,664  confirmed number of deaths, and 145,686 confirmed number of recoveries.  Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there.  Here they are: 330,935 confirmed cases, 2,822 confirmed deaths, and 319,086 confirmed recoveries.
  61. 2020 Tuesday E: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,046.24, UP 454.97 points (+1.54%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,036.78, UP 156.15 points (+1.31%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,635.41, UP 57.82 points (+1.62%).  The price of GOLD is $1,804.50 per troy oz., -0.10 (-0.01%) while the price of SILVER is $23.29 per troy ounce, -0.01 (-0.04%).  The price of PLATINUM is $963.40 per troy oz, +4.70 (+0.49%) while the price of COPPER is $3.32 per pound, +0.017 (+0.52%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,371.80 per troy oz., -0.40 (-0.02%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $44.79 per barrel, -0.12 (-0.27%).  Today, COCOA is $2,753.00 per metric ton, -0.32 (-1.15).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.59 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.84 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency, a known fact which is why the world must disengage with them and bring our supply chain home- ASAP.   Sadly, IF “Pro-China Joe” Biden becomes our president, within four years, Chi-Com troops will be walking our streets.  Count on it.   
  62. 2020 Tuesday F: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1610 with a jackpot of $200 million up for grabs: 09, 15, 34, 61, 64, and Mega 06.  The highest winner was one person who had four numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $42,771.  Overall, there were 91,936 winning tickets.

236. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, AUGUST 24, 2021

CCC. 2020 Monday: Democratic presidential nominee, “Pro-China Joe” Biden announces (what a joke) ‘NO NEW TAXES ON ANYONE MAKING BELOW $400,000 IN ANNUAL INCOME.’ Okay, Joe, okay- we shall see. You cannot raise taxes by $4-6 TRILLION DOLLARS without going after everyone- including the bottom 50-percent that pay some or no taxes. It is mathematically impossible.

  56. 2020 Monday A: Liberty University head Jerry Falwell Jr. announces he is stepping down today from both his ministry and the university due to his wife having had a long-time affair with the pool boy.  How flipping sad is that.  It has also been said that Reverend Falwell has not always been true to his wife.  We will see where this goes.  Elsewhere, medical authorities in Germany announce it does indeed appear that well-known critic of Vladimir Putin- Alexei Navalny- was indeed poisoned by a nerve agent.  At first Russia would not let him leave the country but the Germans were able to obtain an exit for him so they could treat him.  We know this Putin had a hand in this outrage and German Chancellor Angela Merkel told Moscow they better figure out what happened to Mr. Navalny.  
  57. 2020 Monday B: Here are today’s Chi-Com Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 23,424,844 confirmed cases, +145,398, 808,716 confirmed deaths, +2,594, and 15,150,716 confirmed recoveries, +172,121.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 5,793,461 confirmed cases, UP by 40,679 new cases, 179,321 confirmed deaths, UP by 637 new deaths, and 2,947,272 confirmed recoveries, UP by 15,246 new recoveries.   Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 668,615 confirmed cases, 12,152 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 6,600 confirmed cases, 47 confirmed deaths, and 2,143 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 71,125 confirmed cases, 1,863 confirmed deaths, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.
  58. 2020 Monday C: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 28,308.46, UP 378.13 points (+1.35%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,799.72, UP 67.92 points (+0.60%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,431.28, UP 34.12 points (+1.00%).  Currently, GOLD is at $1,937.70 per troy oz., DOWN -1.90 (-0.10%), SILVER is at $26.63 per troy oz., UP 0.023 (+0.19%), PLATINUM $923.90 per troy oz. DOWN -0.60 (-0.60%), and COPPER is at $2.93 # +0.00 (+0.00%).  Light Sweet Crude Oil is 42.43, DOWN -0.19 (-0.45%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.92 Chi-Com yuan.  In contrast, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros.
  59. 2020 Monday D: Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers calls out the National Guard to Kenosha following a police shooting of a black suspect, 29-year-old Jacob Blake by a white police officer following a domestic violence incident on Sunday night.  At this time, the situation remains murky but what seems to be clear is that as Mr. Blake sought to enter his vehicle and leave the scene as the cops told him to stay led to his being shot seven times in the back as he tried to enter his car.  At this time, Mr. Blake is in intensive care, and we hope that he lives but what is clear is that 125 members of the Wisconsin National Guard will be on scene in Kenosha tonight guarding infrastructure and maintaining the peace.  
  60. 2020 Monday E: Chi-Com ‘social media’ ap TikTok launches a lawsuit against the Trump administration for having issued an executive order forcing the ‘ap’ to shed its Chi-Com masters and to become American-owned.  We shall see where that goes.  Tonight, is the first night of the RNC National Convention in various cities around the country.  Speakers tonight include Congressman Steve Scalise, R-LA, Congressman Matt Gaetz, R-FL, Congressman Jim Jordan, R-OH, Donald J. Trump Jr., former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel, State Representative Vernon Jones, D-GA, U.S. Army Nurse Johnson Ford, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Trump 2020 fundraiser, Charlie Kirk, Turning Point USA founder, and Kim Klacik, GOP candidate in Baltimore.   Also speaking are Mark and Patricia McCloskey, Republican lawyers from St. Louis, MO, Sean Parnell, GOP congressional candidate in Pennsylvania, Andrew Pollack, father of Meadow Pollack, slain in 2018 Parkland, Florida, high school shooting on Valentine’s Day, and Tanya Weinreis, a coffee shop owner in Montana who received a loan from the Paycheck Protection Program with which to keep her business open during the Xi Jinping Bat Flu pandemic.   Herschel Walker, former NFL great and friend of the president for 38 years, spoke as well as Natalie Harp, a cancer survivor and right-to-try advocate who with help from President Donald J. Trump was able to survive a medical error and subsequent bone cancer. 
  61. 2021 Tuesday: Friends, please stick around to discover whatever the liberals and their Brown Shirts are doing today.  Everyone knows the communist Chinese are the ones investing billions of dollars into the Democratic Party- thank God, I am no longer a Democrat, I saw the light and man, what a light it was- Antifa, the pussies in the Black Lives Matter movement, and all the rest of the evil, scum-sucking pansies seeking to force their perverted, jaded ways onto us.  We are not going to accept this crap.  Hey, have you sent in your tickets for the NRA banned guns giveaway yet?  I have my eye on the Barrett REC7 DI Carbine.  Man, I would love to win that gun…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Ian Anderson assembled a light orchestra and went on the road performing orchestral renditions of Jethro Tull favorites.  “Thick as a Brick Live in Iceland” came out on June 22, 2014, and besides the eclectic Anderson (flutes, acoustic guitars, and vocals), he was also joined by Florian Opahle (guitars, acoustic and electric), David Goodier (bass and glockenspiel), John O’Hara (all keyboards including accordion), Scott Hammond (drums and percussion), Anna Phoebe (violins), and Ryan O’Donnell (singing, dance, and mime).  This is a wonderful album that puts an entirely new spin on the stellar compositions by this phenomenal band.  We hope you will investigate this one to the fullest as it is a worthy addition.  Enjoy.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The final album Badfinger did for Apple Records came out on November 23, 1973.  “Ass” hit record store shelves and fans were still with the group even though it did not do well on the charts.  The group was disillusioned with Apple because the label had sold them a bill of goods and then left them in the lurch.  Warner Bros. happily picked them up and gave them new life.  The band featured Pete Ham (lead and backing vocals, lead guitar, and keyboards), Tom Evans (lead and backing vocals, bass guitar), Joey Molland (rhythm and lead guitars, lead and backing vocals), and Mike Gibbins (drums and percussion, backing and lead vocals).  “Apple of My Eye” was the single from the band but it failed to do as well as previous releases.  We hope you will seek this one out and give it a good listen- you will definitely enjoy it as much as we do.

ENDNOTES:


[i] 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.

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

[iii] We promoted the music of the Keef Hartley Band as well as of one of its integral members Miller Anderson on Monday, 02-October-2017 through Saturday, 21-October-2017.  We hope you will check their music out by visiting those posts.

[iv] We definitely look forward to presenting the music of Joe Cocker, the famed British ex-bricklayer who blew the minds of the world at the 1969 Woodstock Music and Arts Festival.  Please stay tuned for further developments.

[v] Martin Windrow’s superb book, “The Last Valley,” Da Capo Press, 2006 is an amazing helpmate for information on this famed battle.  Seek it out.

[vi] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.  This presentation included the Jefferson Starship, too, of which, the artist was NOT a member.

[vii] We offered the music of the legendary Pacific Gas & Electric beginning on Thursday, 12-January-2012 through Sunday, 15-January-2012.  We hope you will seek out the music by this famous, interracial hippie rock band.
