  7. 2021 Friday F: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information I–  First, Idaho Governor Brad Little, GOP, issued an executive order overturning a 24-hour-old mask mandate put in place by his Republican Lt. Gov. Janice McGeachin, while he was out of the state.  Apparently, McGeachin is running against her boss seeking to take him out because of his handling of the COVID-19 crisis in the state.  Governor Little NEVER ordered masks to be worn but wore one himself.  While he was out of state, McGeachin undermined him by instituting a mask mandate.  She sounds more like a Democrat to us.   McGeachin claims she tried to protect personal freedoms with her bogus mask mandate.  (Note- this woman sounds like a member of the Ben Sasse, Mitt Romney, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Richard Burr, Bill Cassidy, and Liz Cheney class of losers.  There’s always room for more).
  8. 2021 Friday G: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information II–  Senator John Kennedy, R-LA, is continuing his investigation into the ties between the U.S. government and the Wuhan Institute of Virology, questions Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci seems to have challenging times answering truthfully.[xvi]  Meanwhile, a bill banning COVID-19 passports in the Grand Canyon State fails to pass.[xvii]   Elsewhere, Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom in another show he is going to lose his job in the recall election coming up later this year has enacted a COVID-19 lottery with $116 million in prizes for those who have received their vaccinations.   Next, former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley says it’s important to confirm that the Wuhan Institute of Virology is indeed the source of the pandemic before the NEXT one hits.  Finally, now that the Chi-Coms hand in the virus is becoming more and more known, researchers at the Wuhan Institute of Virology claim ‘we was bit by bats!’  Bats that are 900 miles away.  Uh, okay.[xviii]
  9. 2021 Friday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information III– The Centers for Disease Control loosens mask requirements for summer campers.  Next, the federal government says it’s ‘okay’ for employers to offer incentives to have their employees get vaccinated.   Meanwhile, U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas wants Americans to have COVID-19 passports when traveling abroad but when illegals flood across the border or visitors come here, nope, no big deal.  Elsewhere, conservative luminary Victor David Hanson told Tucker Carlson that ‘nine people during the COVID-19 global pandemic made $20 billion creating and releasing the Chi-Vi vaccines.’  (Note- many of us believe that this is the reason WHY they are pushing everyone to get vaccinated all the way down to young kids which is their plan by the end of this year- EVERYONE.   Speaking of vaccinations, it was curious sight before Congress as the medical bigwigs testifying could not even put the finger on the numbers of their employees who have gotten vaccinated for the Kung Flu.  We say, “F**k them.”).
  10. 2021 Friday I: Foreign News / Overseas News I– It appears that Russian hackers are working on a new scheme targeting emails.  We await further developments.  Next, the German government officially recognizes the genocide they perpetrated in German Southwest Africa back before World War I erupted.  Known today as Namibia, Berlin is going to spend $1.2 billion on projects with which to repay their monstrous crimes.  Moving on, more than $2 billion worth of exports going to the European Union have been hammered with tariffs since Brexit became official.  Ah, it’s like being jilted, the jilted party wants to turn around and make YOU suffer. 
  11. 2021 Friday J: Foreign News / Overseas News II– French oil giant Total is rebranding itself as it moves towards renewable sources of energy.  My, my, my- very woke.  Elsewhere, Hungarian leader Viktor Orbán blows off accusations that his country is RACIST over not wanting to be invaded by hundreds of thousands of Muslims.  Some of us might be moving to Hungary as they seem like one of the few countries that wants to uphold its language, customs, and culture.  In other foreign and overseas news, a Hong Kong judge hands down additional time to pro-democracy leader Jimmy Lai and nine others involved with him (amazing how COVID-19 solved TWO problems for the Chi-Coms- pro-democracy in Hong Kong and Donald Trump in the U.S.).  Lai received an additional 14 months on his sentence while the other nine received an additional 18 months.  Such is justice in a Neo-Nazi hellhole of the People’s Republic of China- Sieg Heil!
  12. 2021 Friday K: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– President Donald J. Trump has said that ‘vast numbers of dead folks voted in 2020’ (which is no surprise to us); however, even stranger, many of them asked for absentee ballots.  Now that’s peculiar.  Meanwhile, a judge has halted the election audit in Fulton County, Georgia, after Democrats began raising holy hell about it.  Wait- if they had nothing to hide, why not encourage the audit?  Something does not add up here.  
  13. 2021 Friday L: Joe Biden News– Rep. Dan Bishop, R-NC 9th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden is compromised by the Chi-Coms.’  Speaking of Joe Biden and his pals, the Chi-Coms, the leader of the regime says he will ‘release the Chi-Vi report in 90 days as long as there isn’t something within it that might embarrass his overlords in Beijing.’  Wow. In other disgusting news, the Daily Caller reported that Joe Biden looking at the young daughter of one of his flunkies, he said ‘she looks like she 19-years-old with her legs crossed.’  (Note- this is the sexual goober you people on the left claim is our ‘president?’  We’re so proud).

Wow.  Something of which to brag, Hunter. Second to last, California authorities are offering $300 thousand reward to find out who the hell murdered Aiden in a fit of road rage about a week ago.  Finally, noted legal scholar and professor Dr. Alan Dershowitz says the CNN lawsuit is all about misleading the ticket.  
  16. 2021 Friday O: Political News I–  Governor J.B. Pritzker, DS-IL, seeks to end a program that helps disadvantaged kids get into private schools.  Wow.  Next, in New Mexico as the race to fill the seat of now-U.S. Secretary of the Interior Debra Haaland heats up, it appears that another seat might go to the Republicans.  The special election will occur on June 1, 2021.   Meanwhile, the Senate vote to create the January 06, 2021, Commission so wanted by House Democrats goes down in smoke even though the usual suspects among the RINOs voted in favor of it.[xix]   Elsewhere, the world learns that the ‘Durham Probe’ has spent $1.5 million; however, President Donald J.

Barry Moore, R-AL 2nd congressional district, says of Joe Biden’s $6 trillion budget that it’s ‘criminal.’  He says instead of mailing checks to people’s mailboxes as ‘COVID-19 relief,’ it would make more sense to get people back to work and give them a tax holiday for as long as possible.’  Finally, since Mayor Lori “The Bigot” Lightfoot said, ‘white reporters can no longer interview her,’ some smartass has served her with a lawsuit.  Good for them.
  19. 2021 Friday R: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Noted conservative icon Todd Starnes says that a teacher in Virginia has been placed on leave for refusing to affirm that biological boys can become biological girls which they flipping can’t.  The Board of Education in Virginia placed this teacher on leave as they continue pushing this crackpot crap.  Folks, Myra Breckinridge was a flipping movie and anyone who continues pushing this crap is doing it as a way of damaging the country.  Perhaps it would be better if the jihadists did take the country over.  Rooftops in every city would be extremely busy.  Moving on, liberal MP William Amos of Canada was forced to apologize for peeing in a bottle while on a conference call with other lawmakers.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by the Beach Boys for some unknown reason was panned when in fact, it is among our favorites of their so-called ‘early-mid stage’ recordings.  “20/20” came out on February 10, 1969, and has some of our most favorite tunes on it.  Tunes like the live favorite, “Do It Again,” “I Can Hear Music,” “Bluebirds over the Mountain,” the raunchiest Beach Boys tune ever- “All I Want to Do” (hard-rocking, too), as well as the beautiful instrumental, “The Nearest Faraway Place.”  Also on this amazing record is a lovely cover of “Cotton Fields,” as well as “Our Prayer” and “Cabinessence.”  The lineup features Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals and saxophones), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), and Bruce Johnston (vocals and bass), as well as some other musicians with which to round out the overall sound.

[i] We promoted the music of the world-famous Creedence Clearwater Revival beginning on Saturday, 16-November-2013 through Saturday, 07-December-2013.  Being the inattentive morons that we were back then, we neglected to promote the music of the band’s individual members.  We hope to do this one day so folks, keep vigilant for the day when we do.

[ii] We began promoting the music of the famous acid rock band from Texas- the 13th Floor Elevators- beginning on Tuesday, 14-May-2013 through Thursday, 06-June-2013.  We would encourage everyone to seek the music of this legendary band out and adding it to their collections.  You will be glad you did.

[iii] We hope to share the music of Lynyrd Skynyrd sometime in the next decade.  At least by 2029 so please stay tuned for further news.

[iv] We promoted the music of King Crimson, one of the greatest prog-rock bands of all time beginning on Monday, 20-October-2014 through Sunday, 21-December-2014.  We hope you will check them out as the remain active to this day.

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

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

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

[ii] 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

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

[iv] We hope to begin promoting the music of the Allman Brothers Band and their spin-off projects sometime within the next eight years.  We hope you will be here when we do because they are a band worthy of investigation by the readership- you will be glad you did.

  69. 2020 Wednesday: Beijing is sniveling and whining that everyone is calling the Chinese Virus “the Chinese Virus,” but it is the Chinese Virus as it came to us from the hinterlands of Wuhan, China, and it continues killing people around the planet as we speak and allowing totalitarian leaders to increase their grip on their populations.  Here are the stats for the globe today: 4,968,689 number of confirmed cases, 326,515 number of confirmed deaths, and 1,885,535 number of confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have (thanks to communist China) 1,581,903 confirmed cases, 93,806 confirmed deaths, and 301,341 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which, the AICPENDBLOG.COM- the old American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day, formerly at Google Blogger (scumbags), California, Hawaii, and Washington state, here are the stats, the Golden State first: 81,795 confirmed cases, 3,334 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are Hawaii’s stats: 643 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 578 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are Washington state’s stats: 18,923 confirmed cases, 1,037 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, liberal Blue State governors continue freeing criminals from prisons and jails, supposedly out of fear of COVID-19, but in truth, seeking to punish their enemies.  Is a second Civil War coming?  It sure looks that way, thanks to communist China.

  71. 2021 Thursday A: NOTE: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 286,128 Chi-Vi deaths in the United States- President Biden, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 173,481 deaths.   In other Chi-Vi-related news, lawmakers are asking WHY House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, possibly more senile than the 46th president is, won’t update the MASK DICTATE when the Centers for Disease Control says, ‘MOST Americans no longer have to wear masks (not that we ever truly did).’  The amazing thing is that when the Democrats believe the cameras are turned off, the masks come off.  What a load of festering fecal matter.

  75. 2021 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.153 per gallon, $2.884 in Florida, $3.889 in Hawaii, and $3.553 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- West Virginia: $2.993.  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- Colombia: $2.313 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,309,522,043,913 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  76. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Today is Day 59 for Border Czar “Kooky Kamala” Harris NOT to visit the southern border.  Meanwhile, rumors of maltreatment and mistreatment of illegal aliens in holding pens along the southern border continue to grow and the federal government has closed two facilities with dire records of mistreatment of the incarcerated illegals.  Elsewhere, video is beginning to leak out of illegal alien dumps at various airports around the country in the dead of night.  Chef Lilah who has a relative working at the airport in Honolulu says that illegal alien brats are arriving at least once a week in flights who are then being distributed around the Hawaiian Islands.  This simply must stop. 
  77. 2021 Thursday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– Hamas and Hezbollah are crying uncle.  A ceasefire negotiated by the Joe Biden regime and Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah el-Sissi has brought a halt to the ongoing clash of Good (Israel) and Evil (Hamas and Hezbollah).  The Israelis have eliminated most of the tunnels that Palestinian leadership devotes massive amounts of donated money to construct rather than giving their people better lives.  The Israels also have taken out numerous Hamas military sites and as many Hamas scumbags as possible.  God bless you!   Meanwhile, a Chinese Communist Party-linked professor says that ‘COVID-19 was indeed a Chi-Com biological weapons attack on the United States.’  Hell, we have been saying that since it began gaining steam in early 2020!  Senior Researcher Chen Ping of China Institute of Fudan University said that ‘(communist) China defeated the U.S. in a biological war in 2020.’  What more flipping evidence does the world need to understand that the primary target was President Donald J. Trump, and the primary beneficiary was “Pro-China Joe” Biden?  OPEN YOUR EYES.
  78. 2021 Thursday H: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– Dr. Kelli Ward, chair of the Arizona GOP, says that it would appear that more and more evidence demonstrates that the 2020 Elections in the Copper State most likely were corrupt and fraudulent in Maricopa County and that it is possible that Joe Biden could be proven to be the counterfeit that he is.  We hope to see a great outcome which is why the Arizona Democratic Party is doing everything it can to defy the ongoing audit as is the despicable Dominion Voting Systems out of Canada.  We believe the Canadian government must order them to comply with all requests from the ongoing Grand Canyon State audit.   (Note- George Soros-funded Sheriff Paul Penzone, DS, is fighting the auditors by putting as much blockage in their way.  When the hell is this country going to do something to Mr. Soros?)  Finally, the D.A. in Fayette City, Pennsylvania, has launched a probe into WHY Dominion Voting Systems machines flipped ONLY GOP ballots over to Democrats in the last election.  Bit by bit, more information continues coming out that we believe is going to show that the Democrats stole 2020.  Hence, why is there this determination to continue strengthening Fort Pelosi in Washington, D.C.?  They know they got away with a stolen election.
  79. 2021 Thursday I: Joe Biden Regime News I– the Biden regime directs U.S. agencies to assess and to then mitigate the effects of ‘climate change.’  Uh, okay, what a waste of time.   Next, all of the Biden regime’s misfires has led to problems in the U.S.-Israeli relationship.  Speaking of Israel, Joe’s pal, Senator Bernie Sanders, DS-VT, is offering legislation to BLOCK the $735 million sale of weapons to the Israelis.  (Note- what more evidence does one require to know that Bernie is a self-hating Jew?)  Also related to Israel, GOP lawmakers are calling on Mr. Biden to strengthen U.S. ties with Israel.  In other regime news, the Bidenistas say the Chi-Coms won’t release data from their now infamous Wuhan Biological Warfare Lab.
  80. 2021 Thursday J: Political News I– The University of North Carolina has denied 1619 Project founder, Nikole “Bozo the Clown” Hannah-Jones tenure because this woman is- in the language of the young and dumb- cray-cray.  Good for them.  Educated, fair-minded people must begin pushing back on these racist nuts before they destroy our country.  Boot this bi**h into the nearest dumpster.  Speaking of educated, non-racist folks, a new study finds that 35-percent or more conservative thinkers are better educated and better informed on both current events and past events.  Liberal news watchers are much-less educated and aware of the truth of anything.  Speaking of liberal bias, Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-TX 2nd congressional district, calls out the mainstream news media- what Dave Rubin labels ‘corporate news media’- over its coverage of events.
  81. 2021 Thursday K: Political News II– While the Democrats continue pressing ahead with socialism, House GOP leaders held a Cuban independence day event.  The people of Cuba deserve their freedom while the American people do not deserve being forced into communism via the backdoor of socialism. Meanwhile, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district, lambasted the Democrats’ establishment of the ‘January 06, 2021, Commission’ as being little more than ‘impeachment 3.0.  Amen.  In fact, ZERO people have been charged with insurrection.  NONE.  The National Republican Congressional Committee raised $11.2 million in the month of April.   Elsewhere, people are asking questions as to WHY Governor “Gravel Gertie” Gretchen Whitmer just shut down the state’s Line 5 that provides propane for much of Michigan for home heating?  WTF is occurring here.
  82. 2022 Friday: Everyone knows the drill- stick around with us and discover the truth…the way things are going, we may have to make nice with China because things are going to hell here in the United States in a handbasket what with WOKE this and WOKE that and here a WOKE and there a WOKE, everywhere a WOKE-WOKE-WOKE…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

130. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, MAY 10, 2022

1943 Monday: The coming late spring-early summer offensive in the Soviet Union is getting in motion. Operation Citadel- the attack on the Kursk Salient in the Ukraine- has been given the go-ahead by Hitler himself even though German intelligence assets have told the Fuhrer that the Soviets have established a massive defense in depth. This will be the greatest clash of armor and tactical aircraft the world has ever seen.

  74. 2020 Sunday: COVID-19 continues causing problems for the nations of the world what with 4,097,158 confirmed cases, 282,495 confirmed deaths, and 1,402,882 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 1,362,715 confirmed cases, 80,562 confirmed deaths, and 208,344 confirmed recoveries which is good, the recoveries that is.  Breaking down the three states in which the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors, California comes first.  In the Golden State, there are 66,773 confirmed cases and 2,745 confirmed deaths but no mention of recoveries.  In Hawaii, we have 732 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 561 confirmed recoveries.  In Washington state, there are 16,891 confirmed cases and 931 confirmed deaths but like California, there is no mention of confirmed recoveries.

  76. 2021 Monday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden became President on January 20, 2021, there have been 280,304 chi-vi deaths in the United States- President Biden, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, the 46th president is shy 182,305 deaths.      
  77. 2021 Monday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,759,618 confirmed cases, 62,314 confirmed deaths, and 2,003,503 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,272,102 confirmed cases, 35,785 confirmed deaths, and 1,853,131 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 33,267 confirmed cases, 488 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 416,317 confirmed cases, 5,626 confirmed deaths, and 202,588 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Northern Marianas Islands, yet another place  the Democrats will want to transform into a state after D.C., Puerto Rico, Guam, and Virgin Islands become states: they have 170 confirmed cases, 2 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.[x]   
  78. 2021 Monday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 838,957 confirmed cases, 6,378 confirmed deaths, and 831,620 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Nigeria, a place overrun with far too many ‘princes’ all-in need of U.S. senior citizens’ life savings: 165,419 cases of the virus, 2,065 confirmed deaths and 156,297 confirmed recoveries.[xi]     
  79. 2021 Monday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,742.82, DOWN 34.92 points (-0.10%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,401.86, DOWN 350.38 points (-2.55%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,188.43, DOWN 44.17 points (-1.04%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $64.85 per barrel, -0.07 (-0.011%).  The price of GOLD is $1,835.50 per troy oz., -2.10 (-0.11%) while the price of SILVER is $27.37 per troy ounce, -0.12 (-0.44%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,249.50 per troy oz, -16.00 (-1.26%) while the price of COPPER is $4.70 per pound, -0.02 (-0.45%).[xii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,952.91 per troy oz, +26.40 (+0.90%).[xiii] The price of RHODIUM is $28,900.00 per troy oz., -400.00 (-1.37%).[xiv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.42 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.92.     In Seychellois Rupee, one greenback equals 15.18 and in Sierran Leonean Leone, a buck equals 10,154.00 and in Singapore Dollar, one dollar equals 1.33 of theirs.[xv]       
  80. 2021 Monday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.103 per gallon, $2.876 in Florida, $3.810 in Hawaii, and $3.514 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Pennsylvania: $3.088.  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- Sudan: $2.026 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,270,989,160,341 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  81. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Under President Biden’s lack of attention, the border continues being overrun by illegal aliens.  ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris is in her 48th day as the so-called ‘Border Czar’ and has yet to tour the region.   Meanwhile, reporters from various news agencies continue reporting on the nonstop flow of illegal aliens pouring into the country.  One reporter on Fox News Channel witnessed a group of 40 or more Venezuelans walking across the Rio Grande this morning.  Hence why we say the river should be seeded with alligator pups.  Why aren’t local authorities running miles of razor wire along the border under their authority?  Minefields, folks, minefields.
  82. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden Regime News I– Today, we learned that after four months ‘on the job,’ Joe Biden has left dozens of ambassadorships unfilled.  What’s up with that?  Next, President Biden restores ‘tranny health protections’ reversing yet another President Donald J. Trump policy.  In other questionable news, a new AP-NORC Poll says that President Biden’s ‘approval ratings’ are buoyed by his pandemic response.’  WTF?  The commander-in-chief has done flipping nothing to improve the lives of the American people.  Next, supposedly Joe Biden is meeting with GOP leaders at the pivotal point in his ‘deal-making.’  What deal-making?   Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, RINO-KY, says, ‘the GOP is willing to agree to $800 billion on infrastructure but not the $1.3 trillion’ demanded by Joe Biden’s handlers.
  83. 2021 Monday H: Chi-Com News I– New reports are surfacing that suggest the Chi-Coms planned to weaponize bat viruses such as COVID-19 back in 2015 to further their Chi-Com BS agenda.  Screw them.  Next, author Gordon Chang says that the Chi-Coms ‘committed mass murder of Americans using COVID-19 as their weapon.’  In other Chi-Com news, the communists are demanding- we repeat- DEMANDING- the U.N. cancel a hearing on Uighur Muslims.  (Note- the communists don’t want anyone to know about their Nazi-like efforts to liquidate the Uighur Muslims and other religious and ethnic minorities so the Han Chinamen can rule supreme.  F**k them).
  84. 2021 Monday I: Foreign News / Overseas News– Overnight in Israel, 80 people have been injured fighting Israeli authorities.  It’s Muslim celebration time and when they celebrate, they attack Israeli military, law enforcement, and even the citizens.  For the first time in history, Hamas has fired rockets, we repeat- ROCKETS- into Jerusalem, a place the morons claim is SACRED to them.  The Knesset had to evacuate, so great was the danger.  (Note- folks, this is why God gave the world the neutron bomb- like Hamas and the rest of the trash up NOW). Ramadan begins in two days and of course, the Palestinians are going to run amok.  Elsewhere, U.S. Coast Guard assets working in the Straits of Hormuz were forced to fire warning shots at pesky Iranian swift boats trying to harass U.S. assets.  Sink them.  
  85. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– The AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says, ‘there’s no doubt that the United States UNDERCOUNTED COVID-19 deaths.’  He also believes we must continue wearing masks into 2022.   Elsewhere in the world, once the COVID-19 curfews were lifted, people are now hosting and enjoying LARGE PARTIES.   Meanwhile, a new TIPP Poll says that the number of Americans who won’t take the vaccine has now risen to 26-percent.   Next, the FDA approves Pfizer-BioNTech’s Chi-Vi vaccine for use with 12-15-year-olds. In other Chi-Vi news, Wyoming joins the ranks of states to BAN COVID-19 ‘vaccine passports.’  Awesome.  Finally, many Catholic schools are having trouble in the times of COVID-19 keeping their doors open for students.
  86. 2021 Monday K: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– The Arizona 2020 Election Audit is off to a bad start as they cannot get their hands on the routers, the passwords, and other valuable information and tools so they can uncover the truth about the election many believe was STOLEN.  IF the Democrats have NOTHING to hide- then hand the requested stuff over to the investigators.   Meanwhile, Michigan is filing a lawsuit pleading evidence shows that votes in that state for President Donald J. Trump were flipped over to drooling old Joe “I’m a Racist” Biden.  Godspeed. 
  87. 2021 Monday L: Business News– Thanks to the stupidity of the Joe Biden regime, restaurants across the United States- including ours- are suffering due to a hiring crisis.  People make more money to sit at home on their asses than they do at work.  However, senile old Joe Biden did say that ‘if the unemployed don’t take jobs offered to them, they will lose their benefits.’  How does that work, Joe?  Employers aren’t going to people’s homes begging them to go to work.  What crap.  Speaking of the ‘generous unemployment benefits’ (until they run out and the country goes broke), Governor Spencer J. Cox, R-UT, says that the ‘added benefits are a disincentive.’  Amen.   Elsewhere, a California man was arrested for his $5 million PPP scam.  The dimwit spent the money on expensive sports cars.  The dumb ass is going to prison.  SOB.
  88. 2021 Monday M: National Security News– The Colonial oil pipeline shutdown enters its fourth day.  The 1,500-mile-long pipeline runs through 17 states.  Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district put out a tweet in which she said- more or less- that ’17 U.S. national security and intelligence agencies said there was NO interference in the 2020 Elections yet NONE of them had a clue that a pipeline running through 17 states was in danger of being hacked.’[xix]  Elsewhere, new information continues to arise showing that Hunter Biden may have had a close relationship with a Chi-Com female agent in much the same way as the slow-witted so-called ‘farter-in-chief’ Rep. Eric Swalwell, DS-CA 15th congressional district, had with Christine Fang, aka Fang-Fang, an operative of the Ministry of State Security, the MSS, an organization comparable to the KGB.  This woman sent Hunter Biden opposition research for his father’s 2020 presidential run.  Hmmm…
  89. 2021 Monday N: Political News I– Sadly, we learnt today just how compromised U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr was- he fought to keep flawed FBI Director Christopher Wray in his position.  Wow.  Next, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden’s TAX LIE has been exposed by rising inflation.  Speaking of Leader McCarthy, he backs Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, over GOP House Conference Chair Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, someone who can’t move on from January 06, 2021, and who won’t STFU about it.  She must GO.   Speaking of ‘Liz Cheney,’ U.S. Army Colonel Denton Knapp, Retired, is running for the windbag’s seat in 2022.  Elsewhere, Rep. James “Influence” Clyburn, D-SC 6th congressional district, says he is ‘willing to consider police reform without ending qualified immunity for law enforcement officers.’  Hmmm.  We shall see.
  90. 2021 Monday O: Political News II– President Donald J. Trump is endorsing Lt. Governor Dan Patrick, R-TX, for re-election.  Next, after the world learned that Kentucky Derby winner Medina Spirit ‘was doped,’ the 45th president pointed out that crap such as this is emblematic of the way the United States is going.  We agree.  Meanwhile, Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, says that ‘Joe Biden bears full responsibility for the LOW JOBS report of last week.’
  91. 2021 Monday P: Social Media News And Big Tech News– Numerous state attorney generals are seeking to stop Instagram’s ‘children’s accounts’ where the social media app can monitor and influence children’s minds.  We concur.  Later today, the FBI has confirmed that Darkside did indeed hack the Colonial pipeline.
  92. 2021 Monday Q: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Rep. Jerry Carl, R-AL 1st congressional district, told Newsmax that ‘the United States is distracted by WOKE.’  Amen.  Next, NBC is dropping the Golden Globes in 2022 over a diversity snafu. 
  93. 2021 Monday R: Miscellaneous News I– Quarterback Tim Tebow has signed a one-year deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars.  Soon, we will hear sobbing and wailing from fans of communist Colin “The Communist” Kaepernick whom NO ONE still will employ.  Boohoo.   Next, the IOC president called off a trip to Tokyo due to the ‘VID outbreak that just won’t go away there.   Meanwhile, Tucker Carlson broke the news of the DEEP TIES between the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci and his U.S. taxpayer funding of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the birthplace of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  The question he raises is WHY the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci is not the subject of a criminal investigation or why he isn’t sitting in the hot seat before Congress getting his balls grilled off by concerned representatives and senators?  Damned good question.  The fact that the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci’s department helped FUND this debacle means he should be doing challenging time in the slammer NOW.  Is this what the Democrats are willing to do to destroy a highly popular president such as Donald J. Trump?  Shocking.
  94. 2021 Monday S: Whacked-Out News Of The Day– Nonagenarian House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi has been blasted over her inability to distinguish one black baseball player from another.   It has come to light that when the aging speaker afflicted with dementia sent out birthday greetings to famed San Francisco Giants slugger, Willie Mays, for his 90th birthday (May 06, 1931),  she put out a picture of her and another dingbat with Giants player Willie McCovey who died on October 31, 2018.  When a big uproar descended upon her aging back, she had the temerity to blame a staffer for her failure to determine one black baseball legend from another.  Ain’t that how it always goes?  (Note- Nance, you truly should consider retirement and we mean YESTERDAY, not today).
  95. 2022 Tuesday: You know the drill…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The sophomore effort by the Beach Boys- “Surfin’ USA”- came out on March 25, 1963, and featured the same lineup of Brian Wilson (bass, piano, and vocals), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Carl Wilson (lead guitar and vocals), Mike Love (vocals), and David Marks (rhythm guitar and vocals).  This album continued the new group’s rise to the top via tunes such as the title track, “Farmer’s Daughter,” and “Shut Down.”  The Beach Boys were not content to ride the wave with just one genre of music, i.e., surf music, as numerous copycats were jumping aboard the surf train.  They also were delving into their love of hot rods, hot chicks, and wild times in So-Cal.  Hawthorne, California, would never be the same nor would the world.  We hope you will seek this one out and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

[xix] Here is what WE think: like the Deepwater Horizon oil platform in the Gulf of Mexico blew up back in 2010, at the time many of us had our suspicions that the Obama-Biden administration had some foreknowledge of that event and used to shut down offshore oil drilling for years.  They shut down drilling off our coasts but allowed the rigs to relocate off the coast of Brazil to drill for oil down there.  Likewise, we think the Russian-backed Darkside hacking group shut this extremely important pipeline so as (1) to cut the amount of oil in the country; (2) to drive up the costs of oil and oil-based products; and (3) to help hasten the bullshit Green New Deal through to being.  Mark our words- Olaf Bologolo.

  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.
  58. 2014 Wednesday: Brainy History reports that the London police force begins a pilot program using body cameras to record behavior and document evidence during responses to incidents.  Elsewhere, naval vessels from both communist China and Vietnam collide with one another as the Chi-Coms continue nibbling away at the sovereign rights of other countries.  In this case, the Chi-Coms were trying to set up a drilling rig in waters belonging to Vietnam which drove the Vietnamese to stop them.  This led to a collision between two opposing vessels.
  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.

Andrew Cuomo, there are 327,469 confirmed cases, 20,828 confirmed cases and like California and Washington state, NO numbers for recoveries.  Could it be political?  You better believe it.
  65. 2020 Thursday A: Following a viral video showing Chi-Com sailors aboard their ‘fishing boats’ throwing the body of a dead Indonesian fisherman overboard, the government of Indonesia summons the Chi-Com ambassador to an immediate meeting to discuss the outrageous mistreatment of its citizens serving aboard the Chi-Com ‘fishing fleets’ (which in reality are actually intelligence-gathering operations with foreign fishing crews aboard them to do the ‘fishing’ because fishing is beneath modern-day Chi-Com citizens).   Elsewhere, law enforcement in Brunswick, Georgia, scoops up father and son Gregory and Travis McMichael and charges the two scumbags for chasing down black jogger Ahmaud Arbery on tape beating and then murdering him.  They claimed he was breaking into houses in their area and that they were forced to take matters into their own hands.  These guys are going to fry.   
  66. 2021 Friday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet As A Whole: 157,530,729 confirmed cases, +3,760, 3,283,708  confirmed deaths, +489, and 135,797,758 confirmed recoveries, +95,586.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,418,826 confirmed cases, UP 52,506 from yesterday’s reporting, 594,911 confirmed deaths, UP 924,[viii] and 26,324,757 confirmed recoveries, UP 309,944.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ix]

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]     
  70. 2021 Friday D:  Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,777.76, UP 229.23 points (+0.66%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,752.24, UP 119.39 points (+0.88%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,232.60, UP 30.98 points (+0.74%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $64.82 per barrel, -0.08 (-0.02%).  The price of GOLD is $1,832.00 per troy oz., +0.70 (+0.04%) while the price of SILVER is $27.57 per troy ounce, +0.09 (+0.32%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,256.60 per troy oz, +2.10 (+0.17%) while the price of COPPER is $4.75 per pound, 0.00 (+0.01%).[xii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,926.51 per troy oz, -20.16 (-0.68%).[xiii] The price of RHODIUM is $28,900.00 per troy oz., -400.00 (-1.37%).[xiv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.43 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.90.     In Pound Sterling, one greenback equals 0.72 and in Qatari Rial, a buck equals 3.68 and in Romanian Leu, one dollar equals 4.05 of theirs.[xv]     Elsewhere, in a MASSIVE blow to the Joe Biden regime, the economy added ONLY 266,000 jobs last month while Democrats were deliriously predicting 1,000,000 jobs or more.  Add to that unemployment going from 6.0-percent to 6.1-percent and it would appear that the BOGUS Biden regime ‘infrastructure bill’ is going to face stiffer opposition than expected.[xvi]
  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.

[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.

111. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, APRIL 21, 2022

28. 1954 Wednesday: The People’s Army is launching an all-out assault on the Foreign Legion held strongpoint of Huguette 1. The communists have labored to dig approach trenches right up to the wire as well as to pull in heavy weapons for close range support. According to some Legion survivors, the last that was seen of their comrades was that they were fighting back-to-back atop the command bunker, throwing back one human wave assault after another of howling communists until finally, everything fell into silence. Still, the fighting at Dien Bien Phu will continue.

  59. 2014 Monday:  The New York Knicks fire Coach Mike Woodson after a season in which the Knicks began as champions and ended with elimination.  Elsewhere Russian separatists n the eastern Ukraine claim that two of their number have been pulled from a river, covered in stab wounds.  This is a horrendous outrage and of course the Russians are angry.  Like the Nazis in 1939 prior to the invasion of Poland also needed a pretext for invasion and so they engineered one.  Vladimir Putin is a good student.  (Note- the Russians probably killed a couple of Chechens).
  60. 2015 Tuesday: Former Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, a true jihadist if one ever existed, receives a 20-year stint in an Egyptian hoosegow for hundreds of protesters he had killed when he was the nation’s president.   Elsewhere, following the death of Freddie Gray in Baltimore, Maryland, the U.S. Department of Justice announces that it is going to launch a federal investigation into the incident.

  64. 2019 Easter Sunday: “Climate activist” Greta Thunberg[vi] speaks at an “Extinction Rebellion” where like-minded, Kool-Aid-drinking (and modern-day Hitler Jugend-like brain-dead zombies) terrorize the city of London.  Waterloo Bridge had been closed for four days as legions of youthful nuts occupied it as they demonstrated their mass insanity over the impending DOOM of the world.  Yeah, right.  Elsewhere, ISIS carries out a string of bombings in Sri Lanka, attacking churches and hotels where Christians might be.  At least 359 people are killed outright with another 500 ore more seriously wounded.  The United States and Pope Francis condemn the attacks.
  65. 2020 Tuesday: COVID-19 Morning Update–  The confirmed world cases of the Chinese Wuhan Virus Crisis are 2,501,156 what with the confirmed number of global deaths sitting at 171,810 but 659,737 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we acknowledge a total confirmed cases at 800,932 with 43,006 confirmed deaths but 73,379 confirmed recoveries.  As for the Chinese statistics, IF you enjoy fairy tales, IF you enjoy fantasy fiction, the communist government claims 88,423 confirmed cases, 4,632 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries, pretty much the same as yesterday’s number and the day before that and so on and so forth.  Let this be a life lesson to everyone that communists, socialists, democratic-socialists, and every other left-wing ideology always lie to cover their tracks.  Do not believe anything the False China says.  Meanwhile, word continues trickling out that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is ‘recovering from a cardiac event or cardiac surgery which could be true just as he might be dead due to the ill effects of a coup.  We will remain vigilant and report the truth when we learn it.
  66. 2020 Tuesday A: COVID-19 Evening Update– As of tonight, the world claims 2,563,384 confirmed cases of China’s lab-engineered virus, the Kung Flu.  The world stats show there are 177,415 confirmed deaths what with 681,477 confirmed recoveries.  IN the United States, there are 824,698 confirmed cases what with 45,297 confirmed deaths, and 75,050 confirmed recoveries.  As for the world’s ‘friends,’ the communist Chinese, they still claim 88,423 confirmed cases what with 4,632 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  As we say, “Communists always lie and so the Chinese continue doing so.”  Soon, they will be paying the price as almost every nation encircling the globe is suffering from this unnecessary disaster. 
  67. 2021 Wednesday: COVID-19 STATISTICS For The Planet As A Whole: 143,012,106 confirmed cases, +1,198,849, 3,046,149  confirmed deaths, +18,967, and 81,979,884 confirmed recoveries, +863,743.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 32,039,261 confirmed cases, UP 160,965 from yesterday’s reporting, 574,418 confirmed deaths, UP 1,717, and 119,049,871 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[vii] 
  68. 2021 Wednesday A: Note: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 250,546 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another four to five weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Speaking of ‘Vegetable Joe,’ he has some cockamamie plan with which to offer tax credits to people getting the Chi-Vi vaccines.  Speaking of the Bat Flu vaccines, the FDA has found multiple irregularities in the plant manufacturing the Johnson & Johnson vaccine what with peeling paint, rodent droppings, and other things in need of correction.  NO wonder people are getting flipping blood clots (not to mention that the J & J vaccine utilizes fetal tissue culled from aborted fetuses for both manufacturing and testing.  This ain’t good, folks).
  69. 2021 Wednesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,723,271 confirmed cases, 61,083 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,184,354 confirmed cases, 34,616 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,817 confirmed cases, 474 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 390,415 confirmed cases, 5,451 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Nebraska, the home of the Cornhuskers: they have 217,108 confirmed cases, 2,349 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[viii]

  73. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Ongoing Border Catastrophe– Things are going to hell along the southern border that Arizona Governor Doug Ducey, RINO, is calling up the National Guard and deploying them to his state’s border with Mexico.  In fact, Senators Mark Kelly, D-AZ, and Kyrsten Sinema support the governor’s efforts to halt the invasion.   Meanwhile, lawmakers on both sides of the aisle want to know WHEN Joe Biden or “Kooky Kamala” Harris is going to visit the border and behold the BORDER CATASTROPHE that is occurring there 24/7.  This must stop.  NOW.
  74. 2021 Wednesday G: Crime And Punishment News / U.S. Department Of Justice News–  Senile old hag, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, continues blathering on about how ‘great it was for George Floyd to give up his life and to call out for his mama’ as he lay dying beneath the knee of convicted murderer and former Police Officer Derek Chauvin.  The leftists being what they are ALWAYS require martyrs so they can forge ahead with their sick agenda and poor Mr. Floyd was just another brick in the Democratic-Socialists’ wall.  Speaker Pelosi must lose her seat in 2022.  Meanwhile, U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland announced that the feds are launching an investigation into the Minneapolis Police Department in a renewed drive to federalize as many police departments as possible.  This is what socialist-communist societies do, they bump up local law enforcement to federal level so they can then move them around- like the People’s Republic of China- so that law enforcement has NO ties to the communities they serve which leads to greater police brutality and mistreatment of the citizenry.  You can count on it.  This is precisely what the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act (or whatever BS name it goes by) is all about, federalizing ALL local and state law enforcement.  In other crime news, following the police shooting of a young black female attacking another with a butcher knife in Columbus, Ohio, last night, Democrats and their ‘tool’s like LeBron James are screeching for blood.  Someone, please, kick LeBron’s stupid ass.  Finally, a Virginia cop was fired- we repeat, FIRED- for donating $25 to Kyle Rittenhouse’s defense fund.  WTF?  Lt. William Kelly, an internal affairs officer in the Norfolk, Virginia, police department was terminated when his superiors learned of this callous doing in a FREE country.  Wow.
  75. 2021 Wednesday H: Crime And Punishment News Ii– After the Chauvin verdict yesterday, ‘peaceful protesters,’ aka Antifa, in Portland, Oregon, assaulted people on the street, set Starbucks stores ablaze, and attacked cops on the street.  Speaking of Officer Chauvin, he is being held in protective custody, i.e., in solitary confinement, to protect him from his fellow inmates.   Meanwhile, the four detestable skanks of the Squad, Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DS-NY 14th congressional district, Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DS-MN 5th congressional district, Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, DS-MI 13th congressional district, Ayanna “Chrome Dome” Pressley, DS-MA 7th congressional district, and newbie Cori “The B***h” Bush, DS-MO 1st congressional district, are driving up race hatred across the country while having the taxpayers spend tens of thousands of dollars to PROTECT THEM.  
  76. 2021 Wednesday I: Foreign News / Overseas News I– In the case of ‘comfort women’ used by Imperial Japanese forces in the Pacific during World War II, South Korea- a country from which many of the sex slaves were taken- sides with Japan.   Speaking of South Korea, President Moon Jae-in says that ‘President Donald J. Trump failed to solve the North Korean problem.’  Uh, okay, but he gave it a better shot than any president since Ronald Reagan.   Next, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says that the Chi-Coms WON’T reduce carbon emissions, nor will they slow their growth as the United States will willingly do.’  He is 100-percent correct.
  77. 2021 Wednesday J: Joe Biden Administration News I– Joe Biden is sending members of his Cabinet out to the various states to shill for his INFRASTRUCTURE PLAN, the one that costs $3.2 trillion, that very few want.   Speaking of the faux president, the Associate Press reports that Joe Biden plans to halve CO2 emissions by 2030 which means higher energy costs, less energy reliability, and a diminished middle class.   Next, Joe Biden plans to use his upcoming address to a joint session of Congress supposedly sometime in May to push for POLICE REFORM across the country.   Meanwhile, a stuttering and stammering Joe Biden says that he believes the bar to ‘convict cops is too high.’   Maybe you should zip your lips until AFTER justice has occurred there, Mr. Faux President.
  78. 2021 Wednesday K: Political News I– Book publishers, Simon & Schuster announce that they reject a petition demanding they DON’T publish a book by Vice President Mike R. Pence.  They are going to move ahead with publication, damn the torpedoes.  Next, RINO King former Governor Chris “Krispy Kreme” Christie, N.J., says he could run for the White House in 2024.  It will be to YOUR embarrassment there, Big Boy.  Speaking of New Jersey, they are going to permit Gender “X” on the state’s driver’s licenses and identification cards.  Oh, goodie, kowtowing to the freaks yet again.   Meanwhile, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy says that failing to censure Congresswoman Maxine “Prune Face” Waters, DS-CA 43rd congressional district, yesterday has weakened both the U.S. House of Representatives and the Department of Justice.  As you know, she went to Minneapolis, Minnesota, over the weekend to stir up a lynch mob and to intimidate the jury in the trial of now-convicted murderer, Derek Chauvin.
  79. 2021 Wednesday L: Political News II– It appears that Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, RINO, is becoming vulnerable amid ongoing attacks by President Donald J. Trump.  Former Democrat-turned-Republican and former state Representative Vernon Jones, GA 91st district,  is in a powerful position to knock Governor Kemp out in the primary election of next year.  Meanwhile, ever-drooling, nonagenarian House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, is floating the idea of a BIPARTISAN January 06, 2021, Commission to get to the bottom of the False Flag, Antifa-and-Black Lives Matter-infiltrated Trump supporters that then became a mob and stormed Capitol Hill.  (Note- it does not require loads of intelligence to visualize that most of those people storming the Capitol, waving Confederate flags and what not weren’t crazed leftists bent on intimidating true protesters, lawmakers, and the American people into accepting what they know was stolen: the 2020 Presidential Election).  
  80. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News III–  Next, the FBI releases a report on the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise, R-LA 1st congressional district, the one that occurred on June 14, 2007, in Alexandria, Virginia, when a crazed BERNIE SANDERS VOTER attacked a baseball practice for House Republicans.  The FBI decided that the slain shooter, James Hodgkinson wanted to carry out a…wait for it…suicide by cop.  That’s right, that’s what the esteemed Federal Bureau of Investigation- in the hands of ‘highly capable’ Director Chris Wray pulled out of their hat.  What a deduction.  How sad is our world today?  Our government has become fully corrupted and it’s a shocking thing to behold for patriots.
  81. 2021 Wednesday N: California Lottery Results– Here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3553 with a $40 million jackpot on the line: 03, 12, 17, 41, 42, and Mega 23.  Out of 114,936 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $40,636.   The winning ticket was sold at Fast Stop in Lake View Terrace, CA 91342.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #838 with a $90 million pot up for grabs: 21, 25, 32, 63, 67, and Powerball 06.  Out of 50,586 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $27,206.
  82. 2021 Wednesday O: In Long Beach Township, New Jersey, former member of the Four Seasons- bassist Joe LaBracio, aka Joe Long (1965-1975)- died at age 88.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 568,290 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 203,535 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 456 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.              
  85. 2022 Thursday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 9,173,641 confirmed cases, 89,980 confirmed deaths, and 8,934,741 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,939,573 confirmed cases, 73,789 confirmed deaths, and 5,806,452 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 245,035 confirmed cases, 1,407 confirmed deaths, and 238,065 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,479,559 confirmed cases, 12,650 confirmed deaths, and 1,439,677 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Guam: they have 47,902 confirmed cases, 354 confirmed deaths, and 47,259 confirmed recoveries.[xviii]

  88. 2022 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.689 per gallon, $4.113 in Florida, $5.243 in Hawaii, and $4.684 in Washington state.[xxiii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Massachusetts- $4.124.  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 23rd LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Colombia: $2.398 per U.S. Gallon.[xxiv] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,399,844,953,328 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Australia the next largest holder of U.S. debt is United Arab Emirates.  This nation holds $40,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  89. 2022 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– Russian President Vladimir Putin is declaring ‘victory over Mariupol’ even though the Ukrainian defenders fighting in the ruins of the steel factory continue killing Russians by the score.  They will not surrender and it’s clear to any observer that Mariupol could become Putin’s Stalingrad, sort of a Putingrad.  Going to be good watching them annihilate the Russians.  In other areas where Ukrainian civilians have been victimized and crushed, the Russians are raising red victory flags.  Sounds like the Soviet Union is struggling to return for Round 2.  The Russians are preparing ‘referendums in the occupied areas’ so the grateful Ukrainians can kowtow to their Soviet masters.
  90. 2022 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II– Although it would be a good show of support for the United States to reopen its embassy in Kyiv, the Biden regime is resisting calls for it to do this morale-boosting step.  WTF is up with slobbering Joe?   Meanwhile, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky says his country requires $7 billion per month to sustain his nation and its fight against the Russians.  Today, we also learned that money Joe Biden is sending to Ukraine also is helping to pay its civil service.  Wow.  In other news, Russia has slapped travel bans on Vice President Kamala Harris, the REAL PRESIDENT Ron Klain, and on Meta-Facebook’s ‘Little Mark’ Zuckerberg.
  91. 2022 Thursday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– The 8th busload of Joe Biden’s illegal aliens arrived in Washington, D.C., today.  Keep ‘em coming.  Next, 21 red states are joining forces to stop the Biden regime ending Title 42 on May 23.  Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border for the past 384 days and it’s been 298 days since she arrived to do the job.  Since the first day of the year, the cost of caring for the illegal aliens is $707,111,130.  The cost of caring for the illegals since the Biden-Harris regime took charge is $42,452,916,873.  The number of illegals who have entered the U.S. since January 01, 2022, is an appalling 1,129,483.  The conservative low estimate of illegals living in the U.S. is 46,561,140.  We believe the truer number is close to 85-125 million illegal aliens. (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).
  92. 2022 Thursday I: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban meets with Pope Francis with the Russo-Ukrainian War as their backdrop.  Meanwhile, mystery continues surrounding WNBA star Britney Griner’s arrest and imprisonment in Russia.  In other horrifying news, Beijing has inked deals with the Solomon Islands and with Kiribati so its ships and security personnel can use them as ‘transit sites.’  (Note- the United States fought at Guadalcanal in the Solomon Islands and at Tarawa in present-day Kiribati during World War II and now the Chi-Coms have built forward bases threatening not only Australia and New Zealand but Hawaii and Guam as well as continues the isolation of Taiwan).
  93. 2022 Thursday J: Health and Medical Alerts– U.S. Senate candidate in Pennsylvania, Dr. Mehmet Oz, says, ‘it’s time to for the U.S. to get back to reality on COVID-19.’  Next, the U.S. claims it’s extending COVID-19 vaccine mandates for illegal aliens at the southern border.  Uh, okay, sure you are.  Illegals can run around without following any COVID-19 mandates while the Biden regime is appealing the judge’s recent ruling ending mask mandates on public transit.
  94. 2022 Thursday K: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer: $49.11 (2) AstraZeneca: $67.39 (3) Novavax: $48.80 (4) Merck & Company: $86.23 (5) Johnson & Johnson: $183.36  (6) BioNTech: $147.84 (7) Moderna: $144.50.

  99. 2022 Thursday P: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden regime is launching a new program with which it claims it will beckon in Ukrainian refugees but not across the U.S.-Mexico border.  That is for the Russians, the Third World, and the Chi-Coms to push their agents across amidst the sea of illegal aliens.  Next, White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain- uh, ‘President’ Joe Biden- announces another $800 million in military aid to Ukraine.  How much will the Biden Family skim off the top?  We shall see.  Meanwhile, the Biden regime has banned Russian vessels from visiting American ports.
  100. 2022 Thursday Q: Joe Biden Regime News II– The FAA is going to review the parachute stunt that occurred yesterday in the nation’s Capital that caused a mass evacuation from the U.S. Capitol Building.  Next, here is one that is a head-scratcher: the U.S. Supreme Court is backing Joe Biden’s decision to DENY benefits to Puerto Rico.  What benefits are we discussing?  Well, these federal benefits provide help to low-income, elderly, and blind citizens.  These benefits provide help to low-income, elderly, and blind citizens and Joe Biden- with the support of the John Roberts’ Supreme Court is denying these benefits to low-income, elderly, and blind Puerto Ricans.  Where the hell is Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DS-NY 14th district, on this topic?  Her Abuelita lives in the PR so she should be screeching like a flipping banshee, yet she’s silent.  (Note- the chief justice must truly fear the Dems packing the court as why would he back a crazy move such as this?)
  101. 2022 Thursday R: Joe Biden Regime News III– Thirteen of the victims of Larry Nassar are suing the Federal Bureau of Investigation for $130 million for having f**ked up the investigation into the perverted coach.  Next, the Biden regime has contracted the release of another 30 million barrels of oil from the nation’s Strategic Petroleum Reserve.  We suspect that like previous withdrawals under the Biden regime, this oil will flow overseas to our ‘allies’ and not to the American people.  Speaking of the oil rip-off, Rep. Rick W. Allen, R-GA 12th district, says that ‘Joe Biden’s energy policies are bringing pain to the American people.’
  102. 2022 Thursday S: Joe Biden Regime News IV– U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen weighed the cost of the Russo-Ukrainian War on Russia’s frozen assets.  Next, Vice President Kamala Harris has lost her 13th staffer- this time, her Chief of Staff Tina Flournoy.  What can you say?  The VP is a bitch who slept her way to the top.  This is fitting justice for one half of this fraudulent administration, YOU steal an election, Karma has a way of coming back and biting you on your ass and this administration is going down the crapper.  Next, left-wing, Obama economist Austan Goolsbee says that the pandemic shutdowns are the main cause of the sky-rocketing inflation eating away at average Americans’ bank accounts.
  103. 2022 Thursday T: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– Famed radio talk show host, Infowars’ Alex Jones, is seeking immunity from the January 06, 2021, Select House Committee.  Next, Donald Trump Jr. is expected to meet with this sham committee.
  104. 2022 Thursday U: Political News I– Although this sounds somewhat hopeful, the Cook Political Report says that 27 Democrat-controlled House seats are in the toss-up column in November.   Next, U.S. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, RINO-CA 23rd congressional district, denies ever having advised President Donald J. Trump that ‘if they impeach you, you should resign.’  He would never have said something such as that, huh.  We are beginning to suspect Leader McCarthy is in the same class with “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell and Senator Mitt Romney, RINO-UT.
  105. 2022 Thursday V: Political News II– Never say that President Donald J. Trump’s endorsements don’t matter (although this one leaves us puzzled).  J.D. Vance- venture capitalist and author- has seen his lead in the race for retiring Senator Rob Portman’s seat in Ohio has leapt by 7 points to the good.  One of his Republican challengers- Mike Gibbons- says he still can’t forget that Vance voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016.  Neither can we.
  106. 2022 Thursday W: Political News III–  Talk about turning something once good into a piece of festering cow crap, other than Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, the JFK Profiles in Courage Award is going to Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY At-large district, as well as to Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, DS, the Copper State’s House Speaker Rusty Bowers, RINO, and to Peach State Election Department employee Wandrea “Shaye” Moss.
  107. 2022 Thursday X: Big Tech News– In a ‘put up or shut up move,’ tech multi-billionaire Elon Musk has $46.5 billion in cash with which to buy Twitter.  The price he is offering is $54.20.  Next, folks, it’s so successful that following its launch on March 29, 2022, it’s official: CNN+ is shutting down on April 30, 2022.  Adios, Chris Wallace.  POS.  In other news, the Florida House of Representatives voted to strip Disney of its special governing and taxation privileges.  This did not come easy, however, as Democrats and their rent-a-mobs of LGBTQIA+ crazed psychos tried to carry out an ‘insurrection’ a la January 6, 2021, of their own although very few news media sites are labeling it as such- but we will.
  108. 2022 Thursday Y: Sports News I– Here’s an interesting one: the NFL says that the black coaches’ discrimination lawsuits lack merit.  Wow.  We thought the NFL was all WOKE now and here they are throwing the black coaches’ suits under the bus.  Shame on them.
  109. 2022 Thursday Z: Miscellaneous News I– The Pro-Death Movement in Kentucky gains a temporary win what with a stay on the state’s new anti-abortion law.  For some reason, the Trump campaign has been ordered to pay $1.3 million in damages and attorneys’ fees to former adviser Omarosa Manigault.  Finally, some glorious film hit the news cycle today.  Some dumbass airlines passenger was hassling Mike Tyson during a flight and wouldn’t take ‘buzz off’ for an answer.  The former heavyweight champion turned around and punched the living shit out of this dimwit who then posted photos of his bloody face on TikTok.  Will they ever learn?

[i] The music of this famed British band, Family as well as the spin-off group, Streetwalkers, appeared on Tuesday, 08-October-2013 through Thursday, 31-October-2013.  Sadly, at the time, we failed to promote the music of both Axis Point as well as Roger Chapman’s solo catalog so we hope to correct those mistakes sometime within the next five years.

[ii] 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.

[iii] 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.

[iv] Not clear as to when we present the music of the Fairport Convention and of Richard Thompson, their famed guitarist but we sure as heck hope we do within the next decade.

[v] We promoted “Led Zeppelin IV” on Saturday, 12-July-2014.  This ranks among the greatest albums of all time.

[vi] This whack-job girl- Greta Thunberg- should get some sort of mental and emotional aid because she and other young people like her have been indoctrinated by people seeking to deploy them to carry out their Marxist agenda.

103. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, APRIL 13, 2022

Friends, we are rebuilding our brand to avoid our search results being hidden by Microsoft Bing. We can only wonder what their problems are, and the most important thing is that if the GOP reclaims Congress in their fall, there must be some sort of accountability for Big Tech that they cannot cancel you without written reasons as well as an appellate process by which the canceled party can seek a fair and impartial hearing.

  72. 2021 Tuesday E: 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 $3.936 per gallon, $2.842 in Florida, $3.736 in Hawaii, and $3.337 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- Georgia: $2.707.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,166,765,942,074 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.  Speaking of the National Debt, the GOP is demanding for a trimmed down, i.e., clean, bill, not one full of all manner of extraneous things stuffed into it.  Only 6-percent of the proposed $2 trillion infrastructure bill goes toward roads and bridges.  Top economists worry that President President Joe Biden’s ongoing spending are going to crash the U.S. economy down the road.
  73. 2021 Tuesday F: PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN NEWS I– President Joe Biden’s proposed nominee for undersecretary for U.S. Department of Defense- Colin Kohl- is facing opposition.  At least 18 GOP senators are demanding an FBI background investigation into the former Obama administration official over his reputed leaking of classified info upon his departure.  Elsewhere, concerns are arising over the risk of a confrontation with Vladimir Putin’s Russia over President Joe Biden’s inept handling of the crisis in the Ukraine.  Next, President Biden says he plans to complete the troop pullout from Afghanistan by September 11, 2021.  This latter move is upsetting Senator Lindsey Graham, RINO-S.C., who says that ‘pulling U.S. troops out of Afghanistan is like canceling our insurance policy against another 9-11-style terrorist attack from occurring here in the United States.’[xvii]
  74. 2021 Tuesday G: PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN NEWS II– According to reports, President Joe Biden plans on keeping U.S. ambassador to Russia- John J. Sullivan, nominated by President Donald J. Trump- in place.   Meanwhile, a recent TIPP poll says that 68-percent of the American people believe a special counsel should be appointed to investigate the shady business and drug dealings of President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter.  In other President Biden news, when the 46th president ‘spoke’ with Russian President Vladimir Putin, he claimed he spoke about imprisoned Putin critic Alexei Navalny, but Russian exile Mikhail Khodorkovsky said that that is simply not the case.  Biden said NOTHING about Mr. Navalny who is being tortured by Putin’s thugs.[xviii]   Finally, President Biden plans to reach ‘white conservatives’ on COVID-19 vaccines by pandering to them via NASCAR, Country & Western Music, and through TV shows like “Deadliest Catch” and other shows.  Wow.  Pander, pander, pander.  Joe, we ain’t no ways stupid, sir, we don’t need you putting commercials on “Ice Road Truckers,” “Pawn Stars,” and “The Voice.”
  75. 2021 Tuesday H: POLITICAL NEWS I– Congressman Andrew Clyde, R-GA 9th congressional district, says that he is going to sue House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA, over her fining lawmakers $5,000 per offense of avoiding the metal detectors she has installed all over Fort Pelosi.  He says this is “BS.”  Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin says the U.S. is going to reverse President Trump’s order to pull troops out of Germany and to redeploy them elsewhere.  They are going to stay put.  Meanwhile, YouTube (owned by POS Sundar Pichai and Google) has banned Dr. Sebastian Gorkha’s channel for supposedly violating their policies on the 2020 Presidential Election meaning, he has been telling the truth- the Democrats STOLE the 2020 Presidential Election.  Period.  Stick that in your pipe and smoke it, bi***es.   Finally, famed legal scholar Baylor University Chancellor Ken Starr told Newsmax TV that WOKE Cancel Culture is extremely hostile to organized religion.
  76. 2021 Tuesday I: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS– In the Mexican state of Guerrero, citizens are arming their children to combat the out-of-control drug cartels running amok along the border.   Next, Iran announces that it’s going to enrich uranium to 60-percent, its highest ever.  Now is the time for the Israelis to set off a nuclear chain reaction in all Iranian nuclear facilities.  Let’s blow these scumbags to meet with Mohammad.  NOW.  Elsewhere, we hear that masked men carrying sledgehammers burst into the Epoch Times’ headquarters in Hong Kong and began smashing up everything.  Xi Jinping’s thugs are at it again.  Speaking of the Chinese, Chris Salcedo on Newsmax said that the PRC is the Number 2 slaveholding state in the world, running a close race with India.  Finally, U.S. intelligence reports that North Korea may soon be conducting nuclear weapons tests once again (seeing as how old President Joe Biden is in the White House).
  77. 2021 Tuesday J: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I–  Following the accidental shooting death of Duante Wright in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, all hell is breaking loose across the country.  Overnight, law enforcement in that city arrested at least 40-60 people for rioting, robbing, looting, arson, and rape.  In the aftermath of the shooting, both Brooklyn Center’s Police Chief Tim Gannon and Officer Kim Potter- under pressure to resign- have resigned.  At press time, the mayor of the city, Mike Elliott, fired the city manager, Curt Boganey, for disagreeing with him by saying Officer Potter deserved due process. 
  78. 2021 Tuesday K: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– In New York City, Black Lives Matter rabble close down the Manhattan Bridge.   SHOOT THEM.  Congresswoman Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, DS-MI 13th congressional district, released a statement in which, she condemned all police as being racist, the system untenable, and that we must- as Karl Marx encouraged- tear everything down and rebuild it atop a socialist foundation.   (Someone, please strip this witch of her citizenship and deport her back to Gaza).  Her buddy, Congresswoman Ayanna “Chrome Dome” Pressley, DS-MA 7th congressional district, tweeted ‘from slave patrols to traffic stops, there ain’t no fixing none of this so burn it all down y’all.’  Moving on, the prosecution in the murder trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin has rested and the defense is up on Day 12.
  79. 2021 Tuesday L: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley says, ‘IF Donald Trump runs in 2024, she won’t run for the presidency.”  (Good, Nikki, because the days of voting for the lesser of two evils is over and done.  Period.).   Next, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, made mention of a Michael Vick voting ad, ‘it’s persuasive if you like murdering puppies.’   Elsewhere, Juul Labs is facing racketeering charges over deceptive advertising.   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump says that New York’s tax laws no longer apply to him seeing as how he is no longer in the White House.  Moving on, the Suez Canal Authority has seized the Japanese-owned vessel, the “Ever-Given,” the one that clogged traffic on the canal for nearly two weeks.  They are demanding at least $900 million from the vessel’s owners which will cover the humongous salvage operations required to free the ship and to restart stalled canal traffic.  Negotiations continue.  Meanwhile, France is banning travelers from Brazil as the South American nation is being overrun by the Chi-Vi.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 564,821 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic.

  87. 2022 Wednesday F: Friends, we are rebuilding our brand to avoid our search results being hidden by Microsoft Bing.  We can only wonder what their problems are, and the most important thing is that if the GOP reclaims Congress in their fall, there must be some sort of accountability for Big Tech that they cannot cancel you without written reasons as well as an appellate process by which the canceled party can seek a fair and impartial hearing

  68. 2021 Tuesday: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE– today is Day 12 of “Kooky Kamala” Harris being in charge of the southern border and NO one has seen or heard from the laughing hyena.  Next, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas says that the administration may resume construction on the southern border wall, not because the administration wants to do it but because of pending lawsuits facing the administration for having put the kibosh on wall construction that was already funded.  Talk about ‘shovel-ready jobs.’  It might be nice if the wall was back online because we have reports of two FBI-sought terrorist suspects crossing the southern border.  From where did they come you ask?  From flipping Yemen. (White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki says, ‘terrorists crossing the border is very unusual.’  What is wrong with this ditz?  Kayleigh McEnany, we miss you!)
  69. 2021 Tuesday A: WOKEISM / WOKE/ WOKE WOOSIES NEWS– Governor Brian Kemp, R-GA, blasted the WOKIES out there by saying that ‘WOKE activists do not care about the truth.’  Meanwhile, Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell says that the ‘private sector must stop acting like a WOKE parallel government.’  Elsewhere, it’s official, Major-League Baseball is moving the 2021 All-Star Game to Denver, Colorado, where voting laws are stricter than those in Georgia and where the population is predominantly white rather than black in the Peach State.[ix]  That’s stupidity for you.  As we said, NONE of us will be watching or attending MLB games again as long as Commissioner Rob Manfred remains in charge.  F**k him!  Finally, the L.A. Stage Alliance quits after misidentifying an Asian nominee.  Man, are there NO room for mistakes?
  70. 2021 Tuesday B: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS– The French government is going to give Air France-KLM a $4.7 billion bailout.  Next, North Korea announces that it will skip the Tokyo Summer Olympics due to COVID-19 concerns.  However, there is some scuttlebutt out there that says the two Koreas want to put in a bid to hold the 2032 Summer Olympics in their two countries.  Elsewhere, even though Iran continues to spit in the faces of the Biden administration, the U.S. State Department will continue trying to hold indirect talks with Tehran in Vienna, seeking a way by which, the United States can return to the deeply flawed Iran Nuclear Deal, aka the JCPOA.  Iran continues demanding a lifting of ALL sanctions and reparations for the harm caused them by the EVIL United States.  We say, “NUKE THEM!” 
  71. 2021 Tuesday C: NATIONAL NEWS– Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers has issued a state of emergency declaration over out-of-control wildfires afflicting his state.  Meanwhile, the Biden administration is preparing to present recent changes to Title IX rules regarding sexual assaults on college campuses.  We suspect it will return to what it was when Joe Biden was vice president under President Barack Hussein Obama.  Men are f**ked no matter what.  Moving on, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken says that the U.S. will provide Bat Flu vaccines to foreign nations and will expect NO favors in return.   Next, Bruce Jenner says that he might seek the governor’s gig in California if the recall becomes reality.  His alter-ego Caitlyn Jenner says he/she will run as a Republican.  Elsewhere, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, D-NY, aka the Love Gov, aka the Gropin’ Gov, says he has plans to build a monument dedicated to essential workers.  What a guy.

  73. 2021 Tuesday E: COVID-19 NEWS I– New Zealand and Australia are opening quarantine-free travel between their two nations.  Next, we learn that approximately 200 people who received Chi-Vi vaccines have now tested positive for the vile disease, one Joe Biden has signed an executive order requiring ALL federal employees NOT to call it ‘the China virus or the Wuhan virus.’  Uh, okay, Joe, okay.  Something else the Biden administration is pushing- COVID-19 passports- Donald Trump Jr. denounces this police state-style measure as the ‘greatest affront on the liberties and freedoms of Americans.’[xi]  Amen.   Speaking of COVID-19 passports, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, has put forth a bill: the “We Will Not Comply Act,” a bill that will prevent anyone in the U.S. demanding any citizen to show proof of immunization.  You know, if we required this for HIV-AIDS, the Democrats would launch a jihad.   In other vaccine news (and this is both troubling and curious), AstraZeneca is seeking a new partner to manufacture its vaccines for the Chi-Vi, you know, the old ‘VID, after discovering that its current partner- Emergent- seems to be having problems with cross-contamination.  Yet another flipping reason to wait a year or so before getting inoculated. 
  74. 2021 Tuesday F: COVID-19 NEWS II– A new Gallup Poll says that fear of the China Virus is at an all-time low even as globalists try to drive fear into us once again by swearing to Marx that numbers are on the rise.  Meanwhile, another report suggests that the Biden administration (meaning Barack Hussein Obama) is moving vaccine availability ahead to April 19.  In order to drive the fear of God into the hearts of the American people, they are now telling us that a double mutant variant from India has now been discovered in California– oi vie!   In other Chi-Vi-related news, small landlords are struggling with the Centers for Disease Control, aka the CDC, mandate on NO evictions while the coronavirus from communist China is running amok.[xii]   Meanwhile, a recent report suggests that the grant to the Wuhan Institute of Virology was NOT reviewed by National Institute of Health, the NIH.
  75. 2021 Tuesday G: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– Congressman Alcee Hastings, D-FL 20th congressional district has died at age 84, having fought a losing battle with pancreatic cancer, a dire scourge.  Rest well, sir, rest well.  Next, the Portland, Oregon, police department has told city leaders that ‘they’re quitting.’  Meanwhile, Congressman Matt Gaetz, D-FL 1st congressional district, continues to stand strong under the barrage his Democrat enemies are launching at him.  This is another FALSE FLAG OPERATION designed to remove a powerful Republican from his post, yet House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi won’t remove the so-called ‘farter-in-chief,’ Congressman Eric Swalwell, DS-CA 15th congressional district, who is a proven liability for the U.S. government in that the Chi-Com Ministry of State Security- the MSS- via him having an ongoing sexual relationship with an intelligence agent, Christine Fang-Fang.   Next, a U.S. Navy official says there are NO indications that the ‘mysterious drones’ are visitors from elsewhere.  Finally, Governor Asa Hutchinson, R-AR, vetoes a ban on sexual reassignment treatments and surgeries, saying ‘it’s government overreach’ and that ‘families, patients, and doctors should be the ones making the decisions as to what’s best for the individual.’
  76. 2021 Tuesday H: BUSINESS AND ECONOMIC NEWS– We learn today that the global shortage (caused by communist China yet again) of semiconductor chips could damage auto manufacturing far longer than anticipated.  Look, none of us who write for the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day wants NEW cars with all the unnecessary electronics and computerized systems.  No, give us gas-guzzling vehicles with less technology and we’re good.   Elsewhere, U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen says that the ‘slowness of the vaccine rollout is a threat to the U.S. Economy.  Meanwhile, the Morning Consult Poll says that 26-percent of Americans will seek new jobs following the end of the Chi-Com pandemic.
  77. 2021 Tuesday I: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 132,135,010 confirmed cases, +623,459, 2,856,632  confirmed deaths, +7,424, and 74,679,417 confirmed recoveries, +180,438.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,835,220 confirmed cases, DOWN 90,409 from yesterday’s reporting, 560,601 confirmed deaths, DOWN 4,210, and 118,732,580 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.[xiii]

[xi] Just today, Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, signed an executive order banning any attempt of creating Chi-Vi vaccine passports in the Lone Star State.  God bless you, Governor!

[xii] Since when did the CDC become the go-to source for who can and who cannot be evicted?  How did they achieve this power?  It’s unprecedented and it’s crazy and for small landlords who invested in real estate to fund their retirements, this kind of crap is devastating.

  74. 2021 Monday: JOE BIDEN/JOE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION NEWS– The U.S. Department of the Interior under the watchful eye of the first Norwegian-Native American Secretary Debra Haaland, is creating a new unit with which to investigate missing Native Americans.  This is good.  Many Native Americans disappear or are harmed on reservations, typically by outsiders, so this is something that is long overdue.  Next, Joe Biden’s economic advisor Brian Deese says, ‘the economy has a long ways to go’ before it improves.  Under the previous president, the economy was vastly improved whereas the Biden administration is returning it to the death spiral it was in when Obama-Biden were in charge.  In other ‘Biden news,’ Dr. Jill Biden is being savaged for wearing fishnet stockings and looking like a ‘ho.’  Meanwhile, former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, RINO, says that ‘Joe Biden is lying to the American people’ on virtually everything.  We concur but it’s not going to help you become president one day, doughboy.

Granholm says that ‘Joe Biden will pass the infrastructure bill will pass IF the American people support it.’  We don’t.  Senator Roy Blunt, R-MO, says that the ‘infrastructure program pushed by the Biden administration would achieve bipartisan support IF it focused on infrastructure.’  Another critic of the administration’s plan is Senator Roger Wicker, R-MS, blasts Joe Biden over cutting out the 2017 tax cuts which is part of the new ‘infrastructure plan.’[xi]  However, U.S. Transportation Secretary ‘Mayor Pete’ Buttigieg broke with his boss today when he said, “AOC’s infrastructure program is bolder than Joe Biden’s.’  Wow.  What’s up with that?   In other Biden administration news, U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen is calling for a global worldwide minimum tax on corporations so that they cannot relocate elsewhere in the world for a better deal. Wow.  (Note- Senator Joe Manchin, D-WV, says he opposes the corporate tax hikes in the infrastructure bill).

  77. 2021 Monday C: NATIONAL NEWS– Since the pandemic, violent crime has been rising at astronomical numbers in the U.S.  The murder rate has shot up by 25-percent. Speaking of violent crime, another attack on Asian-Americans occurred in Oakland, California, yesterday when several BLACK thugs attacked an elderly Asian couple in front of their own home.[xii] In other news, Delta Airlines is busy rescheduling 100 scheduled flights due to staff shortages.  Yet another sign that things might be returning to normal.  Meanwhile, we now learn that a breach at Facebook back in 2019 exposed the personal info of more than 53 million of its users online.  Thank you, Mark Zuckerberg, you, and your Chinese wife, Priscilla Chan.

  79. 2021 Monday E: SHOWBIZ AND ENTERTAINMENT NEWS– “Godzilla v. King Kong’ did very well in its first weekend bringing in $32 million.  Theaters are just reopening so this is a positive sign that things could return to normal.  In other showbiz news, imprisoned sexual deviate and film producer Harvey Weinstein is seeking a new trial in that the jury in his first one he believes was prejudiced against him.  It most likely was.
  80. 2021 Monday F: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE– Governor Doug Ducey, RINO-AZ, says that the ‘Joe Biden White House is divorced from reality when it comes to what is happening along the border between our nation and Mexico.’[xiii]  Next, “Kooky Kamala” Harris once again breaks into hysterical, jackass-like laughter when questioned about ‘affordable childcare’ and all the help being given to legions of illegal alien brats being housed in U.S. facilities.  This ditz never has the answers to any questions of import.  Senator John Barrasso, R-WY, says that when he visited the southern border, left-wing activists working within the care facilities holding illegal alien brats demanded he delete all photos on his phone which he claims he did not.  Finally, Governor Ron DeSantis backs his Attorney General Ashley Moody’s lawsuit filed against the Biden administration demanding it RESUME the deportations of criminal illegal aliens.[xiv]
  81. 2021 Monday G: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– The American Civil Liberties Union, ACLU- the, warns Democrats against their push for COVID-19 passports when they don’t demand voter ID at election time.  Next, New York state lawmakers have proposed hefty tax increases on the wealthiest among them which would make the Empire State the highest tax state in the country.   Elsewhere, Rod J. Rosenstein says that ‘we should wait and see what information Special Counsel John Durham produces regarding Crossfire Hurricane.’  Meanwhile, DNC Chairman Jaime Harrison says that the ‘Democratic Party’s brand is broken, that the party is barely functioning.  It’s all about organize, organize, organize.’
  82. 2021 Monday H: FOREIGN NEWS/OVERSEAS NEWS II– As Russian troops and armored units continue to amass along the eastern border of the Ukraine, Ukraine and NATO are going to hold joint military drills.  Many believe that Vladimir Putin- a man, who by the way, signed legislation into law today that will allow him to rule with an iron fist until 2036- is testing senile old Joe Biden to see how far he can push the old coot before the U.S. responds.  This is coming at a time when Russia is cementing its claim to many parts of the Arctic just as communist China, Iran, North Korea, and other nations are behaving aggressively to both the U.S. and to other nations around the globe.  We believe we are witnessing a new Axis alliance which will conquer the world unfolding before our very eyes.
  83. 2021 Monday I: PEACH STATE HULLABALOO– Congresswoman Nancy Mace, R-SC 1st congressional district, calls out Major League Baseball and its Commissioner Rob Manfred’s hypocrisy over showing ID to vote in Georgia and MLB demanding people show ID when they pick up game tickets.  Meanwhile, as GOP officials in Georgia investigate rampant voter fraud in the 2020 Elections, election officials are unable to provide chain of custody documents for more than 400,000 ballots when all President Donald J. Trump ‘lost’ the state by was 12,000 votes.  No matter Democrats are wetting their pants.  Next, Georgia GOP officials told Coca-Cola® to get out of their state as they are another example of WOKEISM run amok.[xv]  Elsewhere, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, blasts Commissioner Manfred over his hypocrisy when it comes to blasting Georgia while remaining mum on communist China.  After all, MLB is tight with the Chi-Com intelligence gathering app, Tencent.  (Note- Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, says he will not throw out the first pitch at the Texas Rangers baseball game over the MLB and its despicable actions).
  84. 2021 Monday J: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee was trolling liberals by saying, he is now going to identify as Chinese to get preferential treatment.  Next, former Missouri Governor Eric Greitens, also a U.S. candidate, says he will uphold the Trump agenda.  Moving on, Senator Reverend Raphael Warnock, D-GA, had to remove a heretical ‘Christian’ tweet that irritated true believers and not Marxists like him.  F**k them and f**k him.  Speaking of Christianity, we saw amazing video of a Christian preacher in Canada throwing the cops out of the church- at least six or seven of them- who came to close down his services because there were more people there than the law would allow.  F**k Canada.[xvi]  God bless you, pastor!
  85. 2021 Monday K: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS IV– The Soros Group pledges $20 million to push the Biden agenda. Next, gun control advocates push the Biden administration to do more on guns.  Moving on, the U.S. Supreme Court of the United States ends the Twitter-President Donald J. Trump feud by saying it’s moot.   The court also passes on workplace religious bias cases.  Speaking of Twitter, after Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, sends out an Easter tweet in which, she says, “HE IS RISEN!  HAPPY EASTER!” Twitter suspends her.  Suspends her.  WTF?

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Band reformed in the early 1980s and went on the road with four of five members onboard: Levon Helm (drums, vocals, mandolins, and percussion), Rick Danko (fiddle, bass, vocals, guitars), Richard Manuel (pianos and vocals), and Garth Hudson (keyboards, saxophones).  Joining them are the Cate Brothers and members of their band and the subsequent archival release we have for you today is “Live in Tokyo 1983” which came out on March 30, 2003.  We have two glorious discs featuring the Band’s classic tracks along with material from the reformed group.  This is a fabulous album that encapsulates a glorious time, one that might have been even better had Robbie Robertson decided to rejoin his mates but then, water under the bridge is water under the bridge.  We hope you will seek this one out, give it a good listen, and then consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure- we think you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

[i] We shared the music of the Hollies with the world beginning on Monday, 29-August-2016 through Thursday, 03-November-2016.

[ii] We promoted the music of Steppenwolf, beginning on Friday, 25-May-2012 through Sunday, 17-June-2012.  You definitely need to check the music of this iconic band out ASAP.

[iii] We first began promoting the music of Trapeze beginning on Monday, 15-October-2018 through Saturday, 27-October-2018.  We hope you will seek the music of this famed band out and consider adding it to your collection.

[iv] 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.

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

[vi] We hope to share the music of Nirvana with the world within the next decade or so when we will do a series of Grunge Rock bands.

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

[x] We hope to present the music of KISS sometime in the late 2020s.

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

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

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

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

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

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