  61. 2019 Sunday: At historically black Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia, billionaire Robert F. Smith announces he will pay off the college loans of nearly 400 graduating seniors, urging them to pay their good luck forward.  God bless him.  Meanwhile 8 of 9 planets align on the same side of the Sun on this date.
  62. 2020 Tuesday: Neil Cavuto is still expressing outrage as are numerous other liberal talking heads and pundits due to him being unashamed that he is taking hydroxychloroquine sulfate as a preventative against the Chinese Virus.  Speaking of COVID-19, here are the stats for the world: 4,893,195 number of confirmed cases, 322,861 confirmed deaths, but 1,686,487 confirmed recoveries which is good.   In the United States, we have 1,558,631 confirmed cases, 92,258 confirmed deaths, but 297,153 confirmed recoveries which again is great.  In the three states where we have chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, we begin with California first: 81,795 number of confirmed cases, 3,334 confirmed deaths, but 0 confirmed recoveries since Gov. Gavin Newsom won’t provide them.  Next, here’s Hawaii: 641 number of confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, but 573 confirmed recoveries; thank you, Gov. Ige.  Finally, we have Washington state where they have a crackpot governor talking about ‘conspiracies from the planet Pluto,’ here are the stats: 18,811 number of confirmed cases, 1,031 confirmed deaths, but 0 confirmed recoveries due to the state not reporting them.  Meanwhile, communist China continues misreporting the statistics but sources within Hong Kong continue getting the truth out and the numbers are 10-15-percent higher than what Beijing is reporting.  Go figure.  
  63. 2021 Wednesday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 165,457,298 confirmed cases, +571,756, 3,429,560  confirmed deaths, +11,341 and 145,664,210 confirmed recoveries, +65,660.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,795,693 confirmed cases, UP 23,533 from yesterday’s reporting, 601,879 confirmed deaths, UP 565,[viii] and 27,295,523 confirmed recoveries, UP 48,317.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ix]   
  64. 2021 Wednesday A: NOTE: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, There Have Been 285,552 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 174,057 deaths.

  66. 2021 Wednesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,221 confirmed cases, 6,395 confirmed deaths, and 832,232 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Cuba, a communist hellhole that liberal Americans for some unexplainable reason seem to worship and love: 128,094 cases of the virus, 834 confirmed deaths and 120,282 confirmed recoveries.[xi]     
  67. 2021 Wednesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,896.04, DOWN 164.62 points (-0.48%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,299.74, DOWN 3.90 points (-0.029%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,115.68, DOWN 12.15 points (-0.29%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $63.38 per barrel, +0.02 (+0.03%).  The price of GOLD is $1,869.20 per troy oz., -12.60 (-0.65%) while the price of SILVER is $27.79 per troy ounce, -0.23 (-0.84%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,194.50 per troy oz, -7.10 (-0.59%) while the price of COPPER is $4.59 per pound, -0.00 (-0.04%).[xii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,869.29 per troy oz, -33.59 (-1.16%).[xiii] The price of RHODIUM is $28,200.00 per troy oz., -200.00 (-0.70%).[xiv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000025.  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 19.94.     In Venezuelan Bolivar, one greenback equals 248,487.64 (that’s socialism for you) and in Vietnamese Dong, a buck equals 23,045.00 and in West African CFA Franc, one dollar equals 532.50 of theirs.[xv]     
  68. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.144 per gallon, $2.887 in Florida, $3.886 in Hawaii, and $3.547 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Wisconsin: $2.877.  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- Kyrgyzstan: $2.313 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,305,687,729,011 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.  
  69. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– today is the 58th day in which the appointed ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris has FAILED to visit the southern border.  What’s up with that?   Speaking of the border calamity, One America News reports today’s stats regarding JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE- as of today, the cost of caring for illegal aliens is $519,152,882.  The number of illegals that have crossed into the United States this year alone sits at 1,555,337 invaders whom the Biden regime is dumping across the United States.  One America News reports the number of illegals in the United States is around 35,555,336 which is incredible, but we have long said that the numbers of illegal alien invaders is between 35-50 million which is not flipping good.  Round ‘em up and begin deporting them.  NOW.  Apparently, along with the more than a million who have flooded into the United States this year, the Biden regime is going to allow in an additional 260 ‘vulnerable illegal aliens,’ i.e., gays, trannys, and other victimized groups, into the U.S. every day where the taxpayers will pay their way.
  70. 2021 Wednesday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– Colombian leaders confirm the death of prominent FARC leader Jesus Santrich- killed in Venezuela.  Venezuelan dictator (and former bus driver) Nicolas Maduro says he knows nothing about it.   In other overseas-related news, U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi calls for a ‘diplomatic boycott of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics.’  What is wrong, Mumbles?  Chi-Coms not dumping enough cash in your bank accounts. 
  71. 2021 Wednesday H: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– After Maricopa County, Arizona, Democrat election officials did their best to delete as much data related to the 2020 Elections, election auditors have announced they have recovered the deleted databases. 
  72. 2021 Wednesday I: Joe Biden News– A mushed-mouth Joe Biden spoke to U.S. Coast Guard grads and after telling them that ‘COVID-19 has prepared you to meet any challenge,’ he lit them up for not being overly enthusiastic about his incredibly low-key, incoherent speech and called them ‘dull,’ forcing them to applaud his stumbling, bumbling speech.  It was incredibly embarrassing to be sure.   Meanwhile, when a news reporter asked Joe Biden about “Kooky Kamala” Harris’ attack on him during the primary debates of last year over his record on busing, the slow-witted moron who resides in the White House said of her comments that her comments were ‘f**king bulls**t.”  (Note- increasing belligerence and anger is yet another sign of mental decline).
  73. 2021 Wednesday J: Joe Biden Regime News I- the regime announces it is going to release 3 terrorists languishing in Gitmo.  (Note- why not try the SOBs and then execute them?).  Next, the regime slanders the impressive, peace-bringing Abraham Accords, basically labeling them as fecal matter.  Wow.  Next, the regime is offering little support to Israel.  It would appear that she will have to fight on in solitude against Hamas and Hezbollah trash seeking to destroy her.  Moving on, Joe Biden’s court-packing commission is meeting soon with answers as to how the Democrats can continue trashing the federal court system.  (Note- a McLaughlin poll says that 64-percent of Americans believe Joe Biden won’t be running in 2024 and that President Donald J. Trump will decimate “Kooky Kamala” Harris should this quack somehow become the Democratic Party’s sacrificial 2024 lamb).
  74. 2021 Wednesday K: Joe Biden Regime News II– The BIG Joe Biden regime news of the day is that the regime is lifting all sanctions on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline running beneath the Baltic Sea from Russia to Germany.  This will bring cheap Russian natural gas to Europe.  What could be wrong with that?  Well, it provides the Putin regime loads of high-paying jobs while increasing his regime’s power and reach across all non-Russia Europe, something President Donald J. Trump fought against, and which Joe Biden has now overturned- and they claim the 45th president was a stooge of the Russians for four long years.  Wow.  What could be wrong with the Russians supplying the main source of energy to Europe?  Why have NATO?  Add to that Joe Biden shutting down the Keystone XL Pipeline on Day 1 and the Colonial Pipeline suffering a Russian hacking attack.  Again, WTF?  Yet, all we hear are crickets…
  75. 2021 Wednesday L: Political News I– The GOP is expected to release their ‘counteroffer’ to Joe Biden’s multi-trillion-dollar 2022 Budget soon.  We await it with bated breath.  Next, Rep. Gus Bilirakis, R-FL 12th congressional district, ripped Health and Human Services Secretary (and California’s shame) Xavier Becerra a new one over the secretary’s stance on ‘partial birth abortion.’  Secretary Becerra sidestepped ‘partial birth abortion’ by mumbling about no actual law prohibiting the barbaric practice.  Ah, one must love the Pro-Death Movement.  Meanwhile, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, RINO-GA, says he is running for re-election in 2022.  Loser.  Elsewhere, Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom released his 2019 tax returns.  Big whoop.
  76. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News II– Senator Tommy Tuberville, R-AL, seeks to codify into law what President Donald J. Trump sought to do back in 2017 and that is to keep U.S. soldiers, sailors, Marines, airmen-and-women, Coast Guard, and other military retirement funds out of communist China.  Back in 2017, the 45th president discovered that the five-member panel that manages military personnel retirement funds were going to invest the money in Chi-Com companies which means that money ALWAYS manages to find its way into Chi-Com military corporations.  That is insane, as insane as allowing the Chinese Communist Party to manufacture the pharmaceuticals the American people rely upon to protect their health.  We hope you succeed in this valiant effort, Senator Tuberville.
  77. 2021 Wednesday N: Political News III– The U.S. Department of Justice is creating a task force to combat Chi-Vi fraud in the United States and around the world wherever it may be connected to the U.S.  Next, President Donald J. Trump is encouraging lawmakers to vote against the proposed 01-06-2021 Capitol Hill Riots, aka the largest false flag operation in the history of American politics, ‘commission’ to investigate the events surrounding that day.  The Democrats do not want to investigate Antifa, Black Lives Matter, or any other domestic terrorist group, just the events of January 06, 2021, which means they want to investigate President Trump yet again, hoping against hope, they can somehow tar and feather him as some sort of Osama bin Laden.  Later in the day, the House voted to establish the commission with 35 Republicans[xix] joining the Democrats.   Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, hoped that Republicans would not vote ‘aye’ on this garbage and yet they did.  Sad, extremely sad.
  78. 2021 Wednesday O: Political News IV– A U.S. Army chaplain found himself reprimanded for being critical of the NEW U.S. Army’s ‘tranny policy.’  This occurred back on May 12 when Chaplain Major Andrew Calvert commented on his personal social media page where he expressed his religious views and mentioned his support for the ban on trannys serving in the U.S. military.  Once again, a conservative thinker is smacked down for sharing his or her personal views.  What a load of crap.   Next, despite what Pope Francis has ordered, U.S. bishops are going to begin debating Joe Biden receiving/not receiving communion over his Pro-Death policies.  We hope they excommunicate the old bastard.   He certainly is NO Catholic.  Elsewhere, ultra-left, Soros-funded hack Attorney General Leticia James says that investigation into President Donald J. Trump is now a ‘criminal matter.’[xx]  Soros’ ankle-biting dog strikes again.  Finally, attorney Mark McCloskey, R-MO, announced that he is running for U.S. Senate in Rush Limbaugh’s home state.
  79. 2021 Wednesday P: Political News V– In the city controlled by Mayor Lori “The Loser” Lightfoot, DS-Chicago, so far this year there have been 1,200 shootings.  Oh- she also will no longer permit white people to interview her.  Racist?  Of course, but Democrats claim it’s somehow not.  Go figure.  In the Keystone State, businessman Lou Barletta is running to replace the POS they have for governor now, the extremely corrupt Tom Wolf.  We hope he clobbers him.  Elsewhere, Senator John Barrasso, R-WY, is pressing the Joe Biden regime over its use of encrypted communications so as to avoid any type of oversight.  This is akin to Hillary Rodham Clinton having a private server next door to her basement crapper.  Can you imagine what would be said if President Donald J.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by the Beach Boys was filler of sorts what with it being an album of covers done with acoustic instruments and vocals.  “Beach Boys Party” came out on November 08, 1965 and was received well even though the times they were a-changing all-right.  The lineup features Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals and saxophones), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), and Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), and Bruce Johnston (vocals and bass).  Brian Wilson had by this time suffered his first mental breakdown due to the constant stress of being forced by his family members to write hit songs and commercial albums as well as nonstop touring and friction with his abusive father Murray.  He also was experimenting with the popular drugs of the time so he could raise the level of his songwriting which was to come.  Great album for an increasingly contentious time in the history of the world which is why we encourage everyone to seek it out and enjoy.  You will be glad you did.

[i] We promoted the music of the Who and of its individual band members beginning on Monday, 03-August-2015 through Sunday, 29-November-2015.  We hope you will seek out the music of this veteran British band as well as of Pete Townsend, John Entwistle, Keith Moon, and Roger Daltrey.  We know you will enjoy them.

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

[iii] Not sure as to when we will be promoting the music of Curved Air but when we do, you will be among the first to know.

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

[v] We should have promoted the music of Eric Clapton when we did the music of both Cream and the Yardbirds, but we failed to do so.  We hope to do it extremely soon so please remain vigilant for the day we do.  We thank you.

[vi] We hope to promote the music of the Village People in the not-too-distant future.  Don’t want anyone calling us homophobic. 

[vii] Not sure when we will do the music of Freddie and the Dreamers but one day, we most certainly will so continue reading our political site until we do.

  64. 2020 Wednesday A: Long-time vocalist with the British rock band Bad Company[vi] (following the departure of original vocalist Paul Rodgers) Brian Howe died at age 66 in Lake Placid, Florida.  He served as the band’s vocalist from 1986 to 1993 and kept the band’s success alive.   Meanwhile, Venezuela announces that it is going to try the so-called ‘mercenaries’ captured a few days earlier by its armed forces in the nation’s civil courts, including the two supposed American ringleaders.  U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the U.S. will do ‘everything in its power to return U.S. citizens to the United States.’
  65. 2021 Thursday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 156,666,845 confirmed cases, +837,588, 3,268,876  confirmed deaths, +13,574, and 134,841,720 confirmed recoveries, +89,611.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,366,320 confirmed cases, UP 44,947 from yesterday’s reporting, 593,987 confirmed deaths, UP 839,[vii] and 26,014,813 confirmed recoveries, UP 79,672.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[viii]   
  66. 2021 Thursday A: Note: since Joe Biden became president on JANUARY 20, 2021, there have been 279,095 CHI-VI deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, in another 219.83 days, 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 184,438 deaths.      
  67. 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: 3,753,201 confirmed cases, 62,158 confirmed deaths, and 2,000,253 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,258,433 confirmed cases, 35,559 confirmed deaths, and 1,831,455 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 32,922 confirmed cases, 486 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 413,222 confirmed cases, 5,609 confirmed deaths, and 201,532 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s recovery numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Vermont, a place  that has two horrible senators- Bernie Sanders and Patrick Leahy should they become a flipping state: they have 23,296 confirmed cases, 249 confirmed deaths, but 21,007 confirmed recoveries as they won’t mention them.[ix]   
  68. 2021 Thursday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 838,828 confirmed cases, 6,374 confirmed deaths, and 831,331 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Bosnia and Hercegovina, a once communist country (well, part of a country) but now is free: 200,353 cases of the virus, 8,762 confirmed deaths and 163,445 confirmed recoveries.[x]     
  69. 2021 Thursday D:  Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,548.53, UP 318.19 points (+0.93%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,632.84, UP 50.42 points (+0.37%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,201.62, UP 34.03 points (+0.82%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $64.82 per barrel, +0.11 (+0.17%).  The price of GOLD is $1,814.70 per troy oz., -1.00 (-0.06%) while the price of SILVER is $27.39 per troy ounce, -0.09 (-0.33%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,256.00 per troy oz, -1.00 (-0.13%) while the price of COPPER is $4.60 per pound, 0.00 (+0.04%).[xi]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,944.02 per troy oz, +0.81 (+0.03%).[xii] The price of RHODIUM is $29,300.00 per troy oz., -200.00 (-0.68%).[xiii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.09.     In Peruvian Nuevo Sol, one greenback equals 3.82 and in Philippine Peso, a buck equals 47.88 and in Polish Zloty, one dollar equals 3.79 of theirs.[xiv]     
  70. 2021 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.074 per gallon, $2.881 in Florida, $3.815 in Hawaii, and $3.502 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- New York: $2.978.  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- Ethiopia: $1.917 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,255,825,311,282 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.
  71. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, is suing the Biden regime over its refusal to deport criminal illegal aliens.  Excellent. Next, citizens living in border states in a recent poll show that people of ALL political parties believe that Joe Biden’s immigration policies (or lack thereof) are responsible for driving cases of the ‘VID as well as increasing human trafficking and the deaths of thousands.  We must secure our borders.
  72. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden Regime News I– The International Energy Agency- the IEA- has warned that Joe Biden’s policies are allowing the Chi-Coms to obtain greater control of dwindling rare mineral resources across the globe.   Meanwhile, Dr. Jill is meeting with military spouses during a stop in the Rocky Mountain State.  Next, the FAA is hitting unruly, mask-less passengers with massive fines.   In other Biden regime news, growing numbers of people are asking WHY the United States Postal Service now is SPYING on Americans’ social media posts?  Where the hell does the USPS get authority to do this?  Twilight Zone, folks, welcome to the modern-day Joe Biden regime police state.[xviii]   Finally, U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona says, ‘kids will be back in school full-time by September.’
  73. 2021 Thursday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– House GOP leaders send a letter to Centers for Disease Control- CDC- demanding answers as to ties between teachers’ unions and the CDC.  The educators unions seem to hold a great deal of power over what the CDC says, allows, and does.  Next, Moderna is testing a COVID-19 booster shot which the pharmaceutical company shows promise in combatting the various variants.   Speaking of the vaccines, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich says that the ‘Chi-Coms will be thrilled’ if the patents are stripped from BIG PHARMA’S vaccines as the communists will get their hands on them.[xix]  Elsewhere, Israel announces they believe they may have developed a drug that may cure COVID-19.  Thank God Joe Biden has no right to hand this information over to the Chi-Coms.
  74. 2021 Thursday I: Foreign News / Overseas News– Xi Jinping has self-bestowed another title atop his shoulders, “Helmsman.”  The last person to ‘wear this moniker’ was the late Mao Zedong.   What further proof does one need to understand this thug wants to be a global dictator?   Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Tony Blinken says that the U.S. will ‘stand with Ukraine against Russia.’  Boy, oh, boy.  In other fascinating news, former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says that ‘Russian involvement, if not influence or interference in Brexit.’  Uh, okay.
  75. 2021 Thursday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– One America News obtained a letter from the Department of Justice to the state of Arizona attempting to STOP the 2020 Election audit currently going on within that state right now.  U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland swears the audit ‘could intimidate voters?’  WTF?  That is crazy, how is seeking to verify the election as free of corruption and fraud intimidating to voters unless of course, the timid voters actively participated in the fraud?   Speaking of election fraud, legislators in Wisconsin are proposing their own version of an election reform bill.  Meanwhile, Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, signed into law the strongest election integrity bill in the United States.  God bless you, governor.
  76. 2021 Thursday K: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– The upcoming new Superman movie will feature a black actor playing the man of steel.  Awesome.  Will the next Black Panther be a white actor? 
  77. 2021 Thursday L: National Security News– well-known household name Honeywell has been fined for sharing U.S. Department of Defense data with foreign countries.  The fine is a mere $13 million so it would seem as though the Biden regime wants Honeywell to continue funneling national security information to the, uh, Chi-Coms.  Really? 
  78. 2021 Thursday M: Big Tech News– Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, is officially introducing his “Bust Up Big Tech Act,” aka BUBTA, an act with which to clean the clocks of social media titans and search engine leftist losers.  We have been personally assaulted by both social media and BIG TECH and would love to see both destroyed and their individual parts plastered around the world.   In other pathetic BIG TECH NEWS, even though there is NO direct connection between ‘From the Desk of President Donald J. Trump’ and Twitter, Jack Dorsey has closed the account.  WTF?   Speaking of Twitter, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, blasts Twitter for temporarily suspending one of her aides for no particular reason.   Moving on, a member of the Facebook ‘Oversight Board’ says that the referral on President Donald J. Trump was ‘lazy.’  An overseer at Facebook says the social media site should be less politically loaded (because we hope you guys are going to get broken up…for good).
  79. 2021 Thursday N: Political News I– The state of South Carolina adds the firing squad to its list of execution methods which also include the electric chair and lethal injection.  However, seeing as how namby-pamby suppliers of drugs for lethal injection many times will not sell the necessary items to states using them to carry out capital punishment.  Next Donald Trump Jr. says the Dems ‘want his father silenced because they know he resonates with the American people.’  Meanwhile, Senator Chuck Grassley, R-IA, is upping pressure to get to the bottom of Climate Czar John F. “Lurch” Kerry’s numerous Logan Act violations.  We want to know, too, why this POS is able to collude with an ENEMY who hates our country, and no one does anything about it? 
  80. 2021 Thursday O: Political News II– Former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, DS, is colluding with a far-left Swiss billionaire so he can get funds to screw up gerrymandering efforts in states where changes in proportional representation and loss or gain of new House sets is occurring or is set to occur.   In other news, Rep. Steve Scalise, R-LA 1st congressional district, says of colleague, Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, is focused way too much on the past and not on the present and future.  We hope she is out next week.   NO MORE RINOS.  In other hilarious news, Governor Gretchen “Gravel Gertie” Whitmer, DS-MI, is set to receive a ‘profiles in courage award’ or some such dreck for her ‘handling of the pandemic in Michigan.’  What a joke.  This dingbat should be in prison.  In other news, Caitlyn Jenner- in response to critics going after her now that she is seeking Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom’s seat- says, “I move on.”  There you go.  
  81. 2021 Thursday P: Political News III–  A bar owner in California was busted for selling fake Chi-Vi vaccine documentation to people seeking them.  Next, Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DSPUSA-MN 5th congressional district says, ‘it’s time to grow a backbone and end the filibuster.’  F— you.   Next, New York’s Sheldon Silver, former Democratic speaker of the state assembly, has been ordered to return to federal prison.  Elsewhere, TenCent is negotiating with U.S. authorities to keep its investment in the U.S.  Meanwhile, the FBI says they have close to 500 (440) arrests in the BIG FALSE FLAG OPERATION the Democrats and their storm-troopers of Antifa and Black Lives Matter ran on January 06, 2021, at the U.S. Capitol.  Yes, there were Trump supporters there but it’s clear to anyone with political knowledge that most of the people were left-wing infiltrators who nearly pulled off a coup of sorts but eventually failed.  The only ones rotting in the D.C. hoosegow are Trumpers while the Antifa and BLM thugs have all been sprung and in the wind.
  82. 2022 Friday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album released by the Band was the self-titled, “The Band.”  Released on September 22, 1969, this album known as the “Brown Album” due to its album cover, was an even bigger hit their freshman debut.  Like their first album, it produced some powerful hits such as “Up on Cripple Creek” and “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down.”  Once again, the band featured Rick Danko (bass, vocals, and fiddle), Robbie Robertson (guitars and vocals), Levon Helm (drums, percussion, vocals, mandolins, and tambourines), Richard Manuel (pianos, organs, and vocals), and Garth Hudson (keyboards and saxophones).  What we have for you today is the “The Band 50th Anniversary Edition” (where the hell does the time go?), a deluxe version that came out on September 27, 2019.  This is a wonderful album, one we anticipate everyone will want to own because in this day and age of bullshit music, there is nothing more refreshing than a blast from the past such as the one we are promoting here.  Please seek it out and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure.

108. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, APRIL 18, 2022

2019 Thursday: Attorney General William “Bill” Barr releases a redacted version of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s findings on whether then candidate Donald J. Trump conspired with the Russkies to win the 2016 Presidential Election. The findings found NO trace of any collusion between Vladimir Putin and candidate Trump but also did not entirely clear President Trump of other ‘alleged’ or ‘suspected wrongdoings.’ Foaming-at-the-mouth Democrats were screaming, “See! See! The report did not say Trump didn’t collude; no, it only said no evidence could be uncovered.’ Ah, gee whiz, and so it goes…

  61. 2017 Tuesday: After a racist, anti-white gunman goes on a shooting rampage in downtown Fresno, California, law enforcement catches up with the murderous POS charging him with three murders as well as one or two others he committed several days prior to these crimes.   SHOOT him.   Meanwhile, President Trump visits Kenosha, Wisconsin, and signs an executive order with which to strengthen U.S. workers as opposed to foreign workers as well as to examine the number of H-1B visa handed out by the U.S. every year so BIG TECH can avoid hiring American workers in place of low-cost foreign workers. 
  62. 2018 Wednesday: In Managua, Nicaragua, as protesters march protesting cuts to social programs by the Sandinista government, pro-government gangs take to the streets and begin beating the living bejezzus out of them.  Such is the ‘communist way.’   Elsewhere as more information arises from Israeli air strikes into neighboring Syria appears, we learn that their targets were Iranian missile systems with which to target Israeli aircraft.  Well, the Iranians will have to start over…
  63. 2019 Thursday: Attorney General William “Bill” Barr releases a redacted version of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s findings on whether then candidate Donald J. Trump conspired with the Russkies to win the 2016 Presidential Election.  The findings found NO trace of any collusion between Vladimir Putin and candidate Trump but also did not entirely clear President Trump of other ‘alleged’ or ‘suspected wrongdoings.’  Foaming-at-the-mouth Democrats were screaming, “See!  See!  The report did not say Trump didn’t collude; no, it only said no evidence could be uncovered.’  Ah, gee whiz, and so it goes…
  64. 2020 Saturday:  The COVID-19 Virus Crisis continues taking lives and ruining economies around the globe.  Many speculate that the Chinese- allied with the Democrats- set this debacle upon the world.  Rather funny how it sprang up in the death throes of impeachment.  Thank you, communist China, thank you, Democratic Party.  Around the globe, we have 2,310,572 confirmed cases of this horrible disease, 158,691 confirmed deaths, and 590,682 confirmed recoveries. 
    The United States claims 739,988 confirmed cases what with 38,928 confirmed fatalities but 66,357 confirmed recoveries.  Yet Democratic governors such as Gretchen Whitmer and the KKK governor of Virginia, continue locking down their states as though they are communists themselves.  One can only wonder why?  Meanwhile, our ‘friends,’ the People’s Republic of China claim 88,302 confirmed cases, 4,632 confirmed deaths, and 82,589 confirmed recoveries.
  65. 2020 Saturday: In Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the former 72nd U.S. Treasury Secretary Paul H. O’Neill died at age 84.  A Republican, he served under President George W. Bush from January 20, 2001, to December 31, 2002.

  67. 2021 Sunday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 247,359 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.   In other COVID-19 news, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says it’s ‘unlikely that the J & J Chi-Vi vaccine will be sidelined for good.’  We aren’t going to take that crap so you may as well send it to the Chi-Coms, the Iranians, or some other crap-hole country.  Oh, Dr. Fauci also says ‘guns are a health issues.’  No kidding- get shot by one and you have a problem but then again, so are knives and sledgehammers if misused.
  68. 2021 Sunday 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: 3,716,603 confirmed cases, 60,949 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,168,901 confirmed cases, 34,439 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,606 confirmed cases, 474 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 387,312 confirmed cases, 5,427 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Nevada, the home of fraudulent 2020 Election results: they have 310,239 confirmed cases, 5,365 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[xiv]

  72. 2021 Sunday F: GUNS-GUNS-GUNS– in the era of the FALSE PRESIDENT- Joe Biden- gun crimes continue unabated what a shooting at a bar in Kenosha, Wisconsin, early this morning that killed three and injured another three.  By midday, law enforcement had located a person of interest in this mass shooting.  Meanwhile, another mass shooting occurred in an Austin, Texas, apartment complex when an unknown shooter shot and killed three people and then vanished into thin air.  Police are going door to door searching for the scumbag involved in this crime.  Already, it would appear that more mass shootings have occurred under the Biden regime than in the entire Trump presidency.  Are people this upset with a phony president in the White House?  Are they upset over the phony president’s plans to strip them of their guns that they are pouring out of the woodwork like the cockroaches they are taking care of business before they are forced to mete out justice and/or punishment via baseball bats and meat cleavers?  What the hell is going on?[xix] 
  73. 2021 Sunday G: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE– Joe Biden plans to release 400 illegal alien families with their brats into the interior of the country per day by June 2021.  We are not going to provide care for this human refuse, Joe.  Let ‘em die in the streets.  Next, a Texas illegal alien holding pen for young girls gets shut down after a volunteer work dies under mysterious circumstances.   Meanwhile, a mumbling, stumbling phony president, Joe Biden, mutters that he has no numbers regarding refugees he is going to resettle in the United States but is looking at 60,000 this year and another 100,000 per year thereafter.  Thank you, f**king Joe.
  74. 2021 Sunday H: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS I– Prime Minister Scott Morrison and the Australian government says they are in no hurry to reopen their borders that have been closed thanks to COVID-19.  Next, the Czech Republic expels Russian foreign embassy staff over link to alleged 2014 sabotage carried out by the Russkies that blew up a Czech ammo dump.  Meanwhile, we learn that the Chi-Coms are ecstatic over the weakness displayed by both senile Joe Biden and a feeble Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga.  Taiwan, we’re coming for you.   Moving on, the GOP is demanding a stronger show of force as the Russian buildup along the Ukrainian border continues.  Invasion coming here soon, too.  We expect the Chi-Coms, the Russians, the Iranians, and others are going to move simultaneously, and Joe Biden will be left playing pocket pool on the sidelines.  Speaking of Joe Biden’s impotency, former DNI John Ratcliffe says ‘America’s adversaries are taking advantage of Joe Biden’s extremely evident weakness.’ 
  75. 2021 Sunday I:  FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS II– President Donald J. Trump says, ‘it’s a positive and wonderful thing to be getting out of Afghanistan but is critical of the timeline of the withdrawal.’  He negotiated the U.S. departure by May 1, 2021, and Joe Biden has extended it to September 11, 2001.  Here is what we think: we think it’s a ploy by the Bidenistas to cause the Taliban to begin launching major attacks on U.S. positions and personnel so the United States can turn around and say, “Oh, woe, we have to remain in the s***hole country for another 4-8 years so we can continue profiting from the death and destruction.”  There is NO reason to remain in Afghanistan, folks.   Elsewhere, the Mossad announces that ‘yes, indeed, the Biden regime is working at getting back into the FAILED Iran nuclear program.’  Thanks for telling us this but we already knew this POS Joe Biden has no original ideas of his own.  Speaking of the Iranian fecal matter, they fired a barrage of rockets into a base utilized by U.S. contractors in Iraq.  Let’s light Tehran up!  Kill ‘em all!
  76. 2021 Sunday J: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS III– Joe Biden’s National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan claims that his boss, the incredibly fuddled Joe Biden is taking a ‘tough stance’ on Vladimir Putin’s Russia over its ongoing mistreatment of Putin critic Alexei Navalny.  Why Navalny returned to Russia is beyond us but hey, the Russians are doing horrible crap to the imprisoned anti-Putin, which is not right, but Joe Biden is going to do NOTHING about anything.   Elsewhere, Joe Biden’s climate czar, the incredibly phony John F. “Lurch” Kerry is ignoring South Korea’s complaints about Japan’s releasing of toxic water from its shuttered Fukushima nuclear power plant into the ocean. 
  77. 2021 Sunday K: POLITICAL NEWS I– Former President Donald J. Trump ambassador to Denmark Carla Sands is considering a run for Senator Pat Toomey’s seat in Pennsylvania.   Next, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says that Joe Biden unlike President Franklin Delano Roosevelt is in an advantageous position to pack the U.S. Supreme Court.   Many in the GOP are confident that expanding the U.S. Supreme Court will be detrimental to the Democrats in 2022 and again in 2024.  Big flipping deal, the damage will be done and with tens of millions new illegal alien voters, it won’t matter.  Why are you people so obstinately stupid?   Speaking of other stupidity, new SEC Chairman Gary Gensler plans to increase rules and regulations (such as the ones President Donald J. Trump eradicated) so he can help make Joe Biden’s Green New Deal a reality.  Wow.  Going to be great.
  78. 2021 Sunday L: POLITICAL NEWS II– The Grand Old Party in the Peach State has censured not only Governor Brian Kemp, RINO, and others among statewide leadership over their failure to adequately address President Donald J. Trump’s concerns over election fraud.  Speaking of Governor Kemp, former Democrat-turned-Republican Vernon Jones announced yesterday that he is going to primary Gov. Kemp.  Poor Governor Kemp, he should have stood by President Trump as should have Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, another RINO POS.  We hope they lose in next year’s primaries.   Meanwhile, Congressman Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, criticizes befuddled old Joe Biden’s work schedule, says that he is ‘not working hard enough like a purported U.S. president.’  Elsewhere, we learn today that the National Security Agency- the NSA- is targeting U.S. Navy officers who are pro-Trump instead of targeting foreign enemies abroad.  Wow.  How sad.  Are we beginning to see the beginning of America’s first Soviet-style purge of military officers?  Wow.   Finally, at a Lincoln Day fundraiser in Florida, President Donald J. Trump received a thunderous standing ovation from hundreds of assembled guests.  “Miss him yet?”  You better believe we all do.
  79. 2021 Sunday M: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– Elon Musk beats out Jeff Bezos and Amazon getting a $3 billion NASA contract with which to return Americans to the moon. Moving on, a Rasmussen poll says that 54-percent of likely American voters disapprove of what the Democrat-controlled Congress is doing.  We bet it’s way higher than that.   Another poll shows that since the Democrats stole the 2020 Presidential Election, CNN’s ratings have plummeted by 54-percent.  Equally hateful MSNBC also has seen severe losses in viewership.  Next, an Antifa watchdog group has released the mugshots of all the Black Lives Matter and Antifa thugs and punks arrested in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, for the world to see.  Most of them are spoiled white punks which leads us to reiterate what we have said before: when two generations of young people are spared the belt across their bare asses, this is what you end up with- punks.   Speaking of Brooklyn Center, riots continue in that city as well as in other cities across the nation as leftist scumbags prepare for the verdict in the murder trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin.   Finally, Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, says the lawsuit the state has on Joe Biden will force the feeble old fool to ‘enforce the law’ instead of avoiding it.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 566,404 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.

[i] This is the TRUE government of China, Nationalist China which is FREE China.  Although these people inhabit Taiwan, the former island of Formosa, they are the true owners of mainland China, too, and the sooner they reclaim their birthright, the sooner the world will heal.

[ii] We look forward to sharing the music of this influential British band within the next five years.  Colosseum was overlooked when we shared the group of interconnected bands in which, Humble Pie, was a part.  Sorry for the oversight.

[iii] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.

[iv] We promoted the music of the famed San Francisco, California, rock band, Moby Grape, on Monday, 09-April-2012 through Monday, 23-April-2012.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.

[v] As always, our main source is “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, Da Capo Press, 2004.

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

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

[viii] Not sure when we will begin celebrating the music of Joan Jett and the Blackhearts but when we do…you will be among the first to know.

[ix] As to when we will celebrate the life, times, and music of the late great Stevie Ray Vaughn and Double Trouble, we haven’t a clue so stay alert for the day we finally do.

[x] We doubt we will ever do the music of Green Day.

[xi] We hope to celebrate the music of Bill Withers one day.  Please stay alert for when that day arrives.  You will be glad you did.

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

106. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, APRIL 16, 2022

Friends, we understand that the left can say whatever they want about whomever they want. However, they persecute us for making light of all manner of things, lampooning bigwig politicians, or criticizing drastic social changes. Well, we will do our best to clean things up and put our critics at ease. What the hell.

  62. 2015 Thursday: Migrants continue drowning in the Mediterranean in the waters between Libya and Italy as, yet another boat goes down, taking at least 340 people down to Davey Jones’ locker.  Elsewhere, European authorities charge 15 Muslim men from another boat with murder seeing as how they threw 12 Christians overboard to drown when their boat was floundering in high seas.  Crucify them.
  63. 2016 Saturday: The Afghan government continues repelling Taliban attacks on the city of Kunduz.  Afghan and U.S. troops are keeping the jihadists at bay.  Half a world away, Syria and ISIS continue doing battle with one another and many parts of the city of Aleppo are smoldering ruins.  For every rocket attack, the Syrian government answers with airstrikes.  Civilians are fleeing in all directions.
  64. 2017 Sunday: Dictatorial thug leader of Turkey- Recep Tayyip Erdogan- ‘wins’ approval for an 18-article constitutional reform which thrusts the nation ever deeper into totalitarianism.  Elsewhere, due to the stupidity of Hamas and Fatah officials, the Gaza Strip’s ONLY power generating plants shuts down.  It has run out of fuel, its bills have gone unpaid, many among the leadership have skimmed off fortunes from money given to the Palestinian Authority and all they can do is to blame it on the ‘blockade.’  Look, dimwits, the answer is simple: stop building tunnels into Israel and do something for your people.  Period. 
  65. 2018 Monday: Following a recent chemical weapons attack by the Syrian government on the town of Douma, critics are bellowing that the Russians have ‘covered up evidence at the crime scene’ to which, the Russians say, ‘not likely’ and that as soon as it’s safe there (as soon as they finish cleaning it up), they will allow a team from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons to visit the area. 
  66. 2019 Tuesday: While many of us love the Seattle Seahawks, there is no reason as to WHY the team made quarterback Russell Wilson the highest-paid QB in the game, giving him both a $65 million signing bonus as well as a four-year extension worth $140 million.  The rest of the team is struggling so it appears Seattle is going down the path the Baltimore Ravens went with QB Joe Flacco.  Where is Joe NOW?   Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump vetoes a bill demanding an end to U.S. support for the Saudi-led coalition fighting Iranian-backed Houthi scum in Yemen.
  67. 2020 Thursday: Jobless claims due to COVID-19, the Chinese gift to the world that won’t stop giving, come in at 5.2 million for the week.  Total claims since social distancing and economic shutdown hit 22 million Americans out of work.  This is all because of China.  We must make them pay when we come to the end of the pandemic, which we hope is soon.  Word continues to appear that demonstrate that the Wuhan Virus Crisis did indeed come out of a Chinese laboratory in the city of Wuhan where it just so happens the Chinese conduct biowarfare studies.  Although they continue lying that the virus came from somewhere else, who can believe a single word a communist regime says?  Communists always lie, it’s in their DNA which is why no one should take them at their word.  COVID-19 Statistics: currently, there are 2,151,199 confirmed cases around the planet what with 1 confirmed cases around the planet what with 143,725 confirmed fatalities as well as 541,501 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 672,931 confirmed cases with 34,386 confirmed deaths and 54,594 confirmed recoveries.  The Chinese claim 84,593 confirmed cases, 3,342 confirmed deaths and 79,112 confirmed recoveries.  Boy do the communists lie.
  68. 2020 Thursday A: The stock market today: the DOW Jones Industrial Average is 23,537.68, UP 33.33 (0.14%); the NASDAQ is 8,532.36, UP 139.19 (1.66%), and the S & P is 2,799.55, UP 16.19 (0.58%).  President Trump lays out his plan for a gradual reopening of the economy and people are ecstatic.  Meanwhile, authoritarian Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer and Congresswoman Debbie Dingell slander defenders of the U.S. Constitution who have protested the governor’s fascist executive orders by claiming the protesters were waving ‘Confederate and Swastika flags.’  Show us some pictures, please.  Again, we say, “ANTIFA, WHERE THE F**K ARE YOU?  YOU SHOULD BE IN MICHIGAN FIGHTING AGAINST THIS FASCIST GOVERNOR AND HER FELLOW DEMOCRATS!”
  69. 2021 Friday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 139,274,615 confirmed cases, +933,695, 2,989,590  confirmed deaths, +14,760, and 79,359,280 confirmed recoveries, +573,576.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,764,754 confirmed cases, UP 82,708 from yesterday’s reporting, 571,464 confirmed deaths, UP 933, and 119,018,094 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[ix]  In other COVID-19, a recent report says that Regeneron’s Chi-Vi cocktail can help prevent COVID-19 infections.
  70. 2021 Friday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 244,572 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  Meanwhile, people are questioning WHY if everyone is getting their shots why the hell people must continue wearing masks like that dimwitted little troll, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci continues telling us to do.  WTF is up with that?  
  71. 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: 3,712,566 confirmed cases, 60,837 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,155,744 confirmed cases, 34,330 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,337 confirmed cases, 473 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 383,967 confirmed cases, 5,412 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Arkansas, the home of future Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders: they have 332,949 confirmed cases, 5,686 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[x] 
  72. 2021 Friday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 836,902 confirmed cases, 6,315 confirmed deaths, and 827,934 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Nepal, a country the Chinese are trying to undermine and make a de facto piece of the RED EMPIRE: 282,890 cases of the virus, 3,070 confirmed deaths and 274,812 confirmed recoveries.[xi]    
  73. 2021 Friday D:   STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,200.67, UP 164.68 points (+0.48%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,052.34, UP 13.58 points (+0.97%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,185.47, UP 15.05 points (+0.36%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $63.07 per barrel, -0.06 (-0.10%).  The price of GOLD is $1,777.30 per troy oz., -2.90 (-0.16%) while the price of SILVER is $26.04 per troy ounce, -0.04 (-0.25%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,206.00 per troy oz, -2.70 (-0.22%) while the price of COPPER is $4.16 per pound, -0.00 (-0.08%).[xii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,777.50 per troy oz, +36.77 (+1.34%).[xiii] The price of RHODIUM is $28,600.00 per troy oz., +500.00 (+1.78%).[xiv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000016.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.52 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.91.     In Gibraltar pounds, one greenback equals 0.72860 and in Guatemalan Quetzal, a buck equals 7.72.[xv]   
  74. 2021 Friday 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 $3.953 per gallon, $2.833 in Florida, $3.748 in Hawaii, and $3.352 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Illinois: $3.080.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,178,345,152,208 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.
  75. 2021 Friday F: GUNS, GUNS, GUNS– You know folks, last night, 19-year-old Brandon Scott Hole went into the FedEx facility at the Indianapolis, Indiana, airport, shot and killed 8 people, wounded several others, and then took his own life.  His mother reportedly warned the cops last year that her son might try to go out via suicide by cop.  This is a tragedy for all involved but here’s the deal: since Joe Biden has become president, there have been more mass shootings than there were under the last two years of President Donald J. Trump what with 30 dead so far this month alone.  This tells us that the rhetoric used by feeble old Joe Biden and his Democratic Party henchmen-and-women is driving the nuts to go berserk, shooting, and killing and maiming innocent people.  It is clear many fear they are going to lose their weapons and since they have unfinished business, are going to act on it NOW.  Stop with all the HATE SPEECH, Joe, enough is enough.  (Note- the cops in Indianapolis say they are searching for a motive.  What the hell!  Mr. Hole wanted to die, and he had some people with whom he wanted to settle scores.  Period).
  76. 2021 Friday G: BULLS**T POLL OF THE DAY– a recent PEW Poll says that Joe Biden’s approval rating stands at 59-percent.  Please.  This nothing but crap.  Speaking of Joe Biden, Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, says, that ‘Joe Biden is not up to the task at hand, especially the Chi-Coms who are our biggest threat and someone we should have nuked back in 1951.  In other Joe Biden news, he is holding his first meeting with another foreign leader, Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga of Japan, at the White House today.  We wonder who is speaking for him.   Anyhow, the two leaders agree that the Taiwan Strait must remain stable.
  77. 2021 Friday H: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE– common sense people are beginning to ask WTF we shut our country down over the Chi-Com virus when hundreds of thousands of people continue swamping across our border and disappearing into the interior of the country?  If the federal government could give a flying f**k about how many of the invaders have COVID-19, then why should anyone else?  Speaking of the border crisis, President George W. Bush- an ‘esteemed former president’ if one ever existed (yeah, right) says he supports immigration reform but not amnesty.  George, we feel the same way about you as we do Jimmy Carter.  When either one of you dimwits says anything, we quickly move onto something else.   
  78. 2021 Friday I: JOE BIDEN REFUGEE NEWS–  House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, the dumb b***h who slurs her words bad enough already but with a mask strapped over her pie hole makes it even more difficult to understand what the hell she is saying chided Joe Biden on not taking in enough refugees.  Oh, please, Nance, please Joe, bring in some more winners like Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, like the Syrian shooter in Boulder, Colorado, like the Boston bombers, please, bring in some more of those America-hating POS, we need more of them ASAP.   Meanwhile, Joe Biden moves to placate our European allies and says he will remove Trump-era caps on the number of refugees our country accepts in.  That truly sucks.
  79. 2021 Friday J: POLITICAL NEWS I– Someone said Chelsea “The Genius” Clinton may run for Congress.  Good God Almighty, please say it ain’t so.  She is as stupid as is the Fly, aka Baby Evita, aka Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, she with her Boston College economics degree.   Then again, she would fit right in with all the dimwitted Democrats serving in Congress already like Hank “Flat Top” Johnson, DS-GA 4th congressional district, and Congresswoman Sheila “Putty Puss” Jackson Lee, DS-TX 18th congressional district, and Congressman ‘Mr.’ James “Influence” Clyburn, DS-SC 6th congressional district, she would fit right in.   
  80. 2021 Friday K: POLITICAL NEWS II– Glenn Beck said today on his radio show that in the cities where Black Lives Matter protesters ran amok raping, pillaging, looting, robbing, and beating, there were a combined total of more than 6,000 additional homicides.  Coincidence?  We think not.  They are not a peace-loving group; they are fascist black-and-brown-shirted thugs in need of eradication.  Elsewhere, in other political news, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, has challenged the highly cerebral Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DS-NY 14th congressional district to a debate on the Green New Deal.  Now, we would pay handsomely to get ringside seats to see this duel to the death, MTG doing battle with the Fly on pay-per-view-TV.  Sign us up now.
  81. 2021 Friday L: POLITICAL NEWS III– In other political news, we learn that the director for the new Black Panther sequel is NOT going to follow his WOKE liberal comrades and boycott Georgia.  Good.  ‘WOKE’ will go away when people pay it NO attention.  None of us are going to NFL, NBA, or MLB games ever again nor are we going to buy Coca-Cola® products, Nike® sportswear, or any of the other crap that is boycotting everything.  We are not going to see movies, we do not have to see how stupid we are, how great the Chi-Coms and perverts are, enough is enough.   Elsewhere, the great state of Florida passes an anti-riot bill.  About time someone does.  Look, government’s number one job is this: protecting the lives of its citizens and their property.  Plain, simple, and easy for the stupid to understand.  Once you raise an arm to throw a Molotov cocktail, you get shot.  Once you throw bricks and don’t stop when you are told to stop, you get shot.  Once you start looting, you are eligible to get shot.  This is the way it always was and should be again.
  82. 2021 Friday M: 2020 ELECTION NEWS– reports continue to arise that the number one person behind the changed election laws in numerous states and in the subsequent theft of the election from President Donald J. Trump is Bill and Hillary Clinton’s number one hired thug, attorney Mark Elias.  A partner at Perkins Cole, he is the head of their ‘political law’ department and this man- if we are to believe what we are now learning- is the number one operative behind the stolen election and the subsequent cover-ups of the theft.  In all states where election information has already been trashed, those states should have to hold another election at their expense.
  83. 2021 Friday N: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– We learn that Hunter Biden’s NEW book in which he talks about smoking crack, banging teenaged whores, and doing all sorts of other evil and disgusting stuff has sold a whopping 10,638 books in its first week.  According to Bill O’Reilly, this is ‘crap’ seeing as how Bill’s new book, “Killing the Mob” has already sold 60,000 copies and is not even on the shelves of bookstores yet.  In other news, people are lamenting the 13-year-old boy who was shot dead in Chicago the other night by a cop.  Adam Toledo, aka Lil Homicide and Baby Diablo was gangbanging with his buds at 2:30 in the morning, running around with a loaded gun, shot at cops, then ran away and dumped the gun just as the cops rolled up and got shot.  YOU don’t want to get shot, don’t be banging, don’t be shooting at cops, and don’t be running around in the middle of the night.  Period.   We shed no tears.  Next, Raul Castro, dictator of Cuba, says yes indeed, he is going to resign.  Wow.
  84. 2021 Friday O: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– U.S. Interior Secretary Debra Haaland, the first Norwegian-Native American to hold the job, is dumping Trump era rules concerning the fossil fuel industry’s rights on public lands.  Apparently, oil and gas companies will no longer be able to drill for vital national resources leaving us dependent upon OPEC, Russia, and other Third World producers of energy.  This makes no sense.  Next, conservative House Republicans are forming the ‘America First Caucus,’  a group to continue the legacy of President Donald J. Trump.   Next, Minneapolis public schools are hurriedly switching over to online learning as the city (and the country) braces for the verdict in the murder trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin.   Finally, the mother of slain EMT Breonna Taylor- Tamika Palmer- slams both State Representative Attica Scott, D-Louisville, and BLM, labeling both of them as ‘frauds’ in the aftermath of the shooting death of her daughter.  According to Ms. Palmer, she watched the TWO raise money off the death of Breonna without doing a damned thing to help her family.  Wow.  We understand.
  85. 2021 Friday P: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1651: 17, 27, 28, 50, 55, and Mega 25.  Out of 105,680 winning tickets, the highest winners were 64 people who had four numbers for a prize of $496 apiece.
  86. 2022 Saturday: Friends, we understand that the left can say whatever they want about whomever they want.  However, they persecute us for making light of all manner of things, lampooning bigwig politicians, or criticizing drastic social changes.   Well, we will do our best to clean things up and put our critics at ease.  What the hell.

  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.

[i] We are not sure as to when we will present the music of this legendary country performer but when we do, we know you will join us to celebrate the music of Merle Haggard.  God bless you, Hag!

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

[iii] We hope to 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.

[iv] When we promote the music of the Allman Brothers Band, we will also promote the music of Gov’t Mule.  Stay tuned.

[v] ABBA?  We have no clue but when we do so will you.

[vi] When we begin promoting the music of the Legends of Country Music such as Merle Haggard, Buck Owens, Conway Twitty, and others, we will also do the music of Tammy Wynette.  Please remain vigilant.

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

[viii] See i.

[ix] President Donald J. Trump says the American people should boycott ALL corporations and sports leagues boycotting Georgia over its improved election laws.

[x] How many mass shootings have we now had with feeble old Joe in the White House?  Four or five?  What’s up with that, Mr. National Unity? 

[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.

  56. 2017 Thursday: Bowing to public pressure from liberals and with threats of boycott by most major sports, North Carolina repeals its ‘controversial’ bathroom bill that restricted public bathrooms to specific genders- like it’s always been.  Go figure.  Meanwhile, a witness testifying before Congress says that ‘Vladimir Putin hired 1,000 people to create anti-Hillary Clinton news during the 2016 Presidential Election.’
  57. 2018 Friday: On this date, Palestinians go crazy as they commence their “Great March of Return,” the beginning of six long weeks of nonstop protests in which they demand- once again- the ‘right of return’ for ALL Palestinians and their descendants who walked away from the new state of Israel in 1948.  For their troubles, the first day’s casualty total (you knew this was coming) was 19 dead Palestinians and 1,416 wounded.  What a bunch of losers.
  58. 2019 Saturday: On today’s date, Slovakia elects its first female head of state, Zuzana Caputova.  Congratulations!   Meanwhile, Pope Francis arrives in Rabat, Morocco, his first ever pontifical visit to the Maghreb region of North Africa.  The pope and King Mohammed VI call for the protection of Jerusalem’s holy sites as they belong to multitudes of people and to the three primary monotheistic religions.  We agree.   Meanwhile, President Donald J.

  59. 2020 Monday: The Wuhan Virus continues causing problems around the planet as cases near 800,000 and deaths approach 39,000.  China continues claiming they are NOT responsible for this evil they have foisted upon the world, and many believe they colluded with the Democratic Party to launch yet another attempt to remove from office or take down altogether President Donald J. Trump.  Not going to happen, folks.   In New York City, the U.S. hospital ship Comfort arrives in New York City to care for patients that Mayor Bill Di Blasio will never send to it.  As for the Summer 2020 Olympics, postponed a week prior to later in the year are now postponed to June 23, 2021.
  60. 2021 Tuesday: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE I– in the first outrageous news story of the day, a new report says that 2.64 million illegal aliens are receiving COVID-19 relief checks which is BULLS**T.  In the second outrageous tidbit of news today regarding the swamping of the border with hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens, we learn today that in San Diego County[ix], California, where our illustrious colleague, Chef Pedro Muñoz resides (and he confirms this), members of the California Teachers Association is visiting illegal alien holding pens where the river-swimming brats are being warehoused to instruct them while it’s still not flipping safe for American kids to attend classes in person more than 5-8 hours per week.   What else do we need to hear to know that the ruling class DETESTS the people they were elected to help?[x] 
  61. 2021 Tuesday A: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE II– In Texas, the Border Patrol continues reporting that they are arresting hundreds of known illegal alien criminals, thugs, rapists, and narcoterrorists.  We also hear that Russians and Iranians are slipping into the country.  These people should all be shot on sight, especially the latter.  Next, we hear that the nation’s glorious NEW BORDER CZAR, “Kooky Kamala” Harris has no plans on visiting the southern border.   Elsewhere, Congressman Andy Biggs, R-AZ 5th congressional district warns the ‘Biden administration’ to stop dumping illegal aliens in the Copper State.  Enough is flipping enough already there Joe Biden.    Meanwhile, Congressman Jodey Arrington, R-TX 19th congressional district held a round-table discussion with members of his community as to how best they can protect their communities from being overrun with illegal aliens.[xi]  Finally, Lara Trump is hammering the Democrats over their hypocrisy on the border.
  62. 2021 Tuesday B: JOE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION NEWS– Congressman Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district is demanding to know from the U.S. Department of Justice as to whether any prosecutions are going to fall atop the Antifa scum and their reign of terror in Portland, Oregon.  Crickets.   Next, former Congressman Ron Paul, R-TX, says ‘Joe Biden’s gun control policies are going to do nothing to help kids.’  Next, Joe Biden’s new chief of diversity and inclusion at U.S. Southern Command Richard Torres Estrada has had his reign cut short.  Due to a bunch of hateful, mean tweets such as comparing President Donald J. Trump with Adolf Hitler, he is being reassigned elsewhere.  Oh, boohoo for you.  LOL.  Moving on, White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki was stumped by a reporter’s question at the daily briefing: “Can you explain WHY Joe Biden and “Kooky Kamala” Harris fly all over the place- unessential travel- when Americans cannot do the same?  Psaki had no answer (but generally, she seldom does.  Talk about an overrated individual).  Finally, ‘Pandering Joe’ Biden has announced some court picks among them the first Muslim jurist at the federal level.  Keep on pandering, Joe.  Can’t wait to see who the pro-jihadi is…
  63. 2021 Tuesday C: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– Senator Pat Toomey, R-PA, is putting a Federal Reserve Bank branch on notice to stop overstepping its boundaries meaning stop pushing the liberal WOKE agenda.  Good for you.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump continues blasting Dr. Deborah Birx and the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci as without him, Operation Warp Speed would never have occurred.  The undynamic duo continue taking credit for what the 45th president did for the American people (for those who want to get the shots which we don’t).  Elsewhere, a Jackson County, Michigan, judge drops ‘terrorism charges’ against three patriotic Americans charged with the attempted kidnapping of Governor “Gravel Gertie” Gretchen Whitmer, DS-MI.  According to the judge, there has to be evidence of ‘committing terrorist acts’ which there aren’t.  They will still face trial on other crimes.   Finally, our esteemed Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland has ordered the Department of Justice to begin investigations into ALL (the white) HATE CRIMES afflicting our nation.  Whoa.
  64. 2021 Tuesday D: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– as a 10th accuser represented by famed feminist attorney Gloria Allred blasts the corrupt, deviant New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, the cringing POS continues to claim that ‘grabbing and groping women is a cultural norm,’ that the ‘Gropin’ Love Gov’ meant nothing wrong by his actions.[xii]  He is sorry if ‘he offended anyone.’  Regarding another deviate, Jeffrey Epstein’s procurer Ghislaine Maxwell, she finds herself facing added charges, charges of corrupting underage 14-year-old girls.  You in trouble there, chickee.   Elsewhere- and we don’t understand this- Nike- the maker of Lil NAS X’s satanic tennis shoes is suing the rapper to remove the ‘human blood component’ in the shoes.  YOU make the shoes, stop making the crap and throw them on the bonfire.  Enough with satanic bulls*** already.  In other news, Dr. Nicholas Meriwether, Ph.D. of Ohio’s Shawnee State University has won a court case on appeal over his refusal to use tranny-friendly gender terms.  Good.  Tell the trannys- aka chicks with dicks- to shut up and grow up.
  65. 2021 Tuesday E: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– the World Health Organization’s boss Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus- in the hip pocket of Comrade Xi Jinping- slams his own COVID-19 report and demands a further investigation into whether or not there was a leak of the Chi-Vi at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  This is strange.  Former S.C. governor and former U.N. U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley says the ‘WHO COVID-19 report is nothing more than Chi-Com propaganda.’   In other heartwarming news (LOL), Google Maps will now direct its users (no longer us) to ‘eco-friendly routes.’  Are you going to direct El Jefe Climate Czar John F. Kerry to ‘eco-friendly routes?’  That will be the day.  Next, the Freedom Caucus is split on how to combat the “Chi-Com Joe” Biden agenda.  Folks, you do exactly what the Democrats do: court-shop and get one injunction after another slapped on every crap-ass issue the Biden Gang tries to stuff down our throats.
  66. 2021 Tuesday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS IV– Mt. Rushmore is shut down and 400 households in the area are evacuated as out-of-control wildfires continue to rage.  Elsewhere, the Derek Chauvin murder trial continues.  The teen who shot the video of George Floyd’s death says that Mr. Floyd begged for his life.  Famed legal trial attorney and scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz says, ‘thank God for cellphone cameras at least in this case.’  What we are curious of is the story we first heard last year shortly after the murder of Mr. Floyd was the connection between then-Officer Chauvin and Mr. Floyd who both worked security at a local nightclub, the El Nuevo Rodeo.[xiii]  When the story first hit, it opened a door that might show there was a personal issue between the two men that Officer Chauvin then acted upon which would possibly up the charges to first-degree murder but then…that case visited.   Meanwhile, leftist do what leftists do and following the new Georgia Elections Law, democratic-socialists are demanding that Major League Baseball and Professional Golf Association BOYCOTT the Peach State as well a third suit challenging the law was filed today.  My, my, my.  Finally, Philadelphia cops are searching for a POS shooter who shot and killed one person in a shopping mall.  Sounds rather personal.
  67. 2021 Tuesday G: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 127,788,017 confirmed cases, +30,892, 2,794,721  confirmed deaths, +6,509, and 72,501,170 confirmed recoveries, +244,446.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,549,435 confirmed cases, up 230,660 from yesterday’s reporting, 555,577 confirmed deaths, UP 5,714, and 118,013,462 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[xiv]

  71. 2021 Tuesday K: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE THREE STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.896 per gallon, $2.867 in Florida, $3.660 in Hawaii, and $3.325 in Washington state.[xx]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,112,715,077,810 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxi]  Cloward and Piven running amok. 
  72. 2021 Tuesday L: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE III– Former CBP head Mark Morgan says that more than 30,000 illegal aliens have been released into the United States on their own recognizance since January by the Biden administration.   In Texas, a facility designed to hold 250 illegal aliens is now holding more than 4,000 thanks to the fraudulent Biden-Harris administration.   Photos continue coming out via clandestine sources showing the cruel and inhumane treatment the illegals have brought upon themselves.  Repeatedly raped, beaten, traumatized, and molested on the journey here, they suffer more rape and enslavement once they manage to escape illegal holding pens.  The cartels keep them in bondage here.  People, everyone arm up while we still have the opportunity.  Elsewhere, Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, is seeking information on the $87.9 million contract the federal government has made with hoteliers in the country so they can send excess illegal aliens to hotels.   What the f*** is going on?  Why do the Democratic-Socialists hate the American people as much as they do?   Finally, Sean Spicer asks WHY BORDER CZAR “Kooky Kamala” Harris HAS no border-specific meetings on her miniscule agenda?  Why?

[i] We promoted the music of the Moody Blues and of the band’s members beginning on Monday, 23-October-2017 through Sunday, 11-February-2018.  We definitely hope you will check them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[ii] We began promoting the music of Love, the famed Los Angeles, California, rock band on Wednesday, 24-October-2012 through Friday, 16-November-2012.  Please seek out the music of this awesome band.  This group was among the best of the 1960s.

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

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

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

[vi] We began promoting the music of both Procol Harum and Robin Trower along with Gary Brooker beginning on Monday, 16-March-2015 through Sunday, 31-May-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your growing music collection.

[vii] We are not clear as to when- or ever- we will begin doing the music of the Ramones but we sure as heck we do sometime over the next 25 years.

[viii] We began promoting the music of this legendary American rock band- the Young Rascals- beginning on Sunday, 08-December-2013 through Saturday, 21-December-2013.  This band is one everyone who loves rock music must look into and enjoy.

[ix] In San Diego County, health authorities announced that dozens and dozens of fence-jumping illegal alien girls are all testing positive for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Not good which is why we encourage the sowing of minefields along the southern border replete with antipersonnel, antivehicle, and antiboat obstacles as well as seeding the Rio Grande River with alligator pups, laying in foo gas pits, electrifying the fence where possible, and doing whatever else must be done to stop the horde flooding into our country.  At some point, when the administration realizes they have F***ED UP in a major way, like the Romans, we will have to wage war on the illegal aliens within our country of cease to exist.  PATRIOTS MUST HEAD TO THE BORDER TO STOP THE TIDAL WAVE OF THIRD WORLD FLOTSAM AND JETSAM…

[x] IF you ever sought to know how violent events such as the French Revolution, the Bolshevik Revolution, or the Spanish Revolution occurred- or the ensuing civil wars that followed the last two- this is a perfect example.  YOU spit in the faces of the people long enough, do not be surprised when they drag out the LEADERS, put them up against the wall and begin shooting them or sending them to the gallows or to the guillotine.  An inevitable flashpoint is coming and anyone who thinks that it’s not coming sadly is crazy.  The citizens of Paris had had enough and stormed the Bastille, the Russian soldier demoralized that his commanders frittered their lives away succumbed to the toxic siren’s song of Marxism, while in Spain, wealthy aristocratic landowners and an unsympathetic church drove the masses to go berserk.  In the inevitable after in Spain, it required a Fascist to save the country, El Caudillo Francisco Franco while in France, it required its own fascist leader, Napoleon Bonaparte.  Who will lead the American people against the communist thugs pissing all over us?

[xi] We would like to suggest to Blue Dog border Democrats such as Henry Cuellar, D-TX 28th congressional district, IF you want to stop the border from disappearing, it’s time you folks either threaten Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi with becoming Republicans or that you will vote with the GOP.  Let her make all the threats she wants, at some point, you guys must shake this old bag’s control of all things Democratic Party.

[xii] The 10th accuser is a woman of Italian ancestry and she says, ‘kissing and hugging people is Italian but ONLY FOR FAMILY and the Gropin’ Gov is NOT FAMILY.  We hope to see the Lov Gov wearing an orange jumpsuit soon.  Maybe even his brother, too.

  62. 2009 Tuesday: In his first major speech on education, President Barack Hussein Obama called for tying teachers’ pay to student performance and expanding innovative charter schools.  Elsewhere, a gunman, 28-year-old Michael McLendon, killed 10 people, including his mother, four other relatives and the wife and child of a local sheriff’s deputy across two rural Alabama counties before committing suicide.  Cowardly POS.
  63. 2011 Thursday: Lawmakers in Wisconsin’s capital pass the bill that removes almost all collective bargaining rights of its state employees’ union. 
  64. 2012 Saturday: In the GOP Presidential Primary, Governor Mitt Romney wins caucuses in the Northern Marianas Islands, Guam, the Virgin Islands, and Wyoming.

  66. 2014 Monday: Kim Jung-Un is re-elected as leader of North Korea with 100% of the vote; the election was the first since the death of his father, Kim Jung IL, in 2011.  Elsewhere, Joe McGuiness, 71, the adventurous and news-making writer and reporter, died in Worcester, Massachusetts, on this date.
  67. 2015 Tuesday: Pakistan announces that is reinstating the DEATH PENALTY for all crimes requiring it; previously, the nation used it only for acts of terrorism and had in fact been in a moratorium until the terrorist attacks of December 2014. 
  68. 2016 Thursday: In Coral Gables, Fla., CNN hosts the 12th GOP presidential candidates debate.   In other news, Venezuela calls home some diplomats from Washington, D.C., after President Barack Obama refuses to lift some U.S. sanctions imposed on that crap country.
  69. 2017 Friday: South Korean high court upholds parliament’s decision to impeach President Park Geun-hye for corruption and other charges.  Meanwhile, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions does what new administration’s AG’s do and that is he asks for the resignations of 46 federal prosecutors from the Obama-Biden administration.  This includes a big Obama hack, Preet Bharara, the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York.
  70. 2018 Saturday: Syrian government forces made their deepest push yet into the eastern suburbs of the capital Damascus in a major blow to opposition fighters.  Meanwhile, campaigning in western Pennsylvania for a Republican House candidate, President Donald J. Trump told a rally that his new tariffs were saving the nation’s steel industry.  Elsewhere, North Korea begins floating possible sites their great leader, Kim Jong Un, would be willing to hold a summit with President Donald J. Trump.
  71. 2019 Sunday: In Badghis Province, Afghanistan, the Taliban[iii] attacks an Afghan government military base capturing or killing 50 Afghan troops.  Elsewhere, Ethiopian Airlines Flight ET302 crashes just after takeoff from Addis Ababa, killing all 157 people aboard.  This was one of the two major crashes that sealed the fate of Boeing’s 737 Max 8 aircraft.   Meanwhile, people take to the streets of Moscow and other Russian cities protesting the Putin-imposed censorship of online media.  Can’t have Alexei Navalny and his followers causing trouble now, can we?
  72. 2020 Tuesday:  As things now stand, it appears that on Super Tuesday Junior, former Vice President Joe Biden won BIG in Michigan, Mississippi, and Missouri.  At the time of this update, it appears that Joe Biden also is winning Idaho and that Bernie Sanders will win North Dakota and Washington.  So far…meanwhile, various nations are instituting lockdowns such as Italy that is being hammered by the Wuhan Virus Crisis.  In communist China, Xi Jinping visits the city of Wuhan, a metropolis of 11 million souls that is under one of the tightest lockdowns what with people sealed into their apartments.  The Chi-Com bigwig walks through the streets waving at people looking out their windows.   What a photo op!  Elsewhere, the virus continues wreaking havoc across the entire planet. 
  73. 2021 Wednesday:  Day 50 of the Biden Regime- stick around and discover the truth along with us.  What we believe to be the truth is the Democrats know they pulled a fast one on November 3, 2020, when they stole the election from Donald J. Trump.  Thus, they have National Guard and antipersonnel and antivehicle barriers up around the nation’s capital.  There is NO other reason for this other than the drummed-up excuse that ALL Trump supporters are EVIL, hence why the Guard will remain in D.C. until May 23, 2021.[iv]  Speaking of stolen elections, the battle for answers in Arizona has reignited as some dumpster divers discovered bags of shredded ballots, ballots that are NOT to be shredded for 22 months.  We hope this will bring new demands for answers.   Speaking of Arizona, the Grand Canyon State has joined forces with Big Sky Country- Montana- in suing the crumbling Biden administration over limitations placed upon ICE in their ability to arrest and hold illegal aliens.
  74. 2021 Wednesday A: After watching Joe Biden stumble around a store yesterday- lost like an old great-grandpa dumped off at a Home Depot, it’s no surprise that Vice President “Kooky Kamala” Harris is holding solo calls with world leaders.  Her latest is with the prime minister of Norway.   In other federal government-Joe Biden administration news, the FBI is swooping in on (WHITE) extremists who rallied outside the Capitol on January 6, 2021.  Speaking of which, the FBI is seeking information on the Capitol Hill Pipe Bomber who dropped off pipe bombs around the Capitol the day BEFORE the storming of the Capitol Building by Antifa- and- Black Lives Matter-infiltrators among the Trump supporters.  We hope they find the would-be bomber just as we hope the government will let people like the QAnon shaman out of jail.
  75. 2021 Wednesday B: Tom Homan, former Customs and Border Patrol bigwig lays blame for the mess on the border directly on Joe Biden and his lack of any kind of coherent border policy other than to let them in, let them in, so they can flood our country and commit crimes on American citizens.   Meanwhile, Texas Governor Greg Abbot says, ‘Joe Biden is doing NOTHING on securing the southern border so Texas will have to take it upon itself to do what must be done.’  In other illegal alien news, the Copper State’s government is blasting the Biden administration for busing in loads of illegal aliens and then dumping them in the streets of border cities.  Folks, this is an invasion, and we must treat it as such.  Everyone gear up and head to the border.   In other border news, Donald Trump Jr. is blasting Joe Biden’s impotency in doing anything to staunch the tidal wave of illegal aliens flooding across it.   In other Texas news, Twitter is suing Texas AG Ken Paxton over him suing them.  Tit for tat, eh?
  76. 2021 Wednesday C: In other interesting news today, the office of Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo called one of his accusers on her honeymoon to beg her to backpedal on claims he  misbehaved in a sexual manner towards her.  We wonder how that call went?   Governor Cuomo’s book publisher (ghostwritten we believe) is canceling publication of the self-congratulatory memoir of the AWESOME job he did during COVID-19 in his state what with his 15,000-20,000 senior citizens and disabled people trapped in nursing homes, places he SEEDED with Chinese Virus-infected people to KILL THEM.[v]  His publisher isn’t canceling him over that; no, they’re canceling him because six women have come forth and accused the mobbed-up POS for being a sexual deviate.
  77. 2021 Wednesday D: Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, a Republican, calls for ‘trashing the mask’ once a person is immunized against the ‘VID.  In other COVID-19, aka Xi Jinping Bat Flu, news, Joe Biden is contracting with Johnson & Johnson to obtain 100 million doses of the vaccine no one wants due to fetal tissue obtained from ABORTIONS is used in both its manufacture and its testing by May.  If one requires any additional proof that Joe Biden and members of his administration are immoral folks, what more does one need?  The Pro-Death Movement wants to dirty EVERYONE’S soul by forcing them to receive this vaccine.  We say, “F**K THEM!”  Meanwhile, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says, ‘when risk evaluations are unclear regarding travel, make value judgment calls before you embark on a journey.’  We’re going to Florida’s beaches…
  78. 2021 Wednesday E: Speaking of “Beijing Joe” Biden, a Rasmussen poll says that only 48-percent believe that Joe Biden is NOT a vegetable.  Others are not sure while more than 50-percent believe he is a vegetable.  Wow.    Meanwhile, one of Joe Biden’s picks for high office- Vanita Gupta- is backpedaling her ‘DEFUND THE POLICE’ comments.  Joe Biden nominated her to become the head of the U.S. Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division.  Yikes. 
  79. 2021 Wednesday F: Prepare for the ANAL SWABS!  The Chi-Coms and members of the Biden administration are preparing to hold talks in Beijing and Alaska.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, they are peeved over a U.S. admiral discussing the fact that the communists could be invading Taiwan soon.  We said that as soon as Vegetable Joe became president, landing craft gates would be hitting Taiwanese shores just as airstrikes overhead would be attacking the island.  Who is going to stop them?  Certainly not a ‘president’ they own.  Speaking of S-hole countries, Iran is offering a phased return to the JCPOA, the Iranian nuclear deal, the one they’ve been breaking since they agreed to it back during the Obama-Biden years.   Meanwhile, Pope Francis wants answers on arms sales to terrorists following his trip to Iraq. 
  80. 2021 Wednesday G:  When asked if he would reconsider on what some saw as harsh words on Meghan Markle, Piers Morgan reiterated that he still believes Ms. Markle is full of s**t.  Here we have a woman sobbing about ‘how unfair, how racist it all is’ when like Barack and Michelle Obama, you have obtained an elevated level in life and yet, you and Mr. Markle- the person formerly known as Prince Harry- continue whining and sniveling.  Shut the hell up, already!  Enough is enough and as for Oprah, that old dingbat should be ashamed of herself.   Meanwhile, Donald Trump Jr. says of Ms. Markle that she is ‘seeking attention.’  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump doubles down on encouraging Republicans to donate to his Super PAC and not to the RNC.  Visit his website and follow the links.   Approval for President Trump remains high at or around 74-percent while support for Senator “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell is below 30-percent. 
  81. 2021 Wednesday H: California Governor Gavin Newsom is addressing the people of his state as signatures required to recall this POS continue amassing far beyond the required number.  Too late, Golden Child.   Hawaii continues experiencing problems over heavy rainfall, especially on Maui, and a state of emergency has been declared.   In Arkansas, the state is pushing through HB 354, a bill that will curtail trannys from playing on the scholastic sports teams with which they CLAIM to identify.  We say, “Just create a third section of school and college sports, TRANNY SPORTS.  It’s cheaper to build additional locker rooms and bathrooms for the confused than it is to allow misguided individuals to ruin girls’ and women’s sports.”
  82. 2021 Wednesday I: The Democrats are pushing loads of bulls**t bills including H.R. 8 the Bi-Partisan Background Checks Act of 2019, an act with which, they will monitor closely- perhaps with anal swabs like the Chi-Coms- all owners of firearms and ammunition.  They want to compile lists and they want to know where EVERYONE’S guns are.  F**k them.  Meanwhile, the House passes “Joe Biden’s COVID-19 Relief Bill, the $1.9 trillion PORKULUS, by a party line vote of 220-211.  Elsewhere, Congresswoman Marcia Fudge, by a vote of 66-33 is confirmed to be the next secretary of HUD.  By another vote of 70-30, Judge Merrick Garland has been confirmed to become the nation’s next attorney general.  Remember: this guy could not say that it’s ‘ILLEGAL’ to illegally cross the border into the United States.   
  83. 2021 Wednesday J: Another Rasmussen poll says that 59-percent of American voters few the federal government as little more than a ‘special interests group.’  An additional 52-percent of voters are concerned over the fact that Joe Biden has held NO press conferences and that when he’s seen in public, he seems like a lost soul.  And this man is our president?  WTF?  No wonder there are troops in Washington, D.C., no wonder the feds are investigating every nook and cranny, every crevice and rathole, searching for pro-Trumpers for persecution and prosecution.  In other disgusting news, the Biden administration is considering FREE surgeries for ALL trannys in the U.S. military.  Communist China, please- start bombing us NOW, end our misery.  Enough is f**king enough!
  84. 2021 Wednesday K: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 117,764,619 confirmed cases, +339,851, 2,613,747, confirmed deaths, +5,516, and 66,737,497 confirmed recoveries, +187,432.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,402,796 confirmed cases, up 65,360 from yesterday’s reporting, 533,119 confirmed deaths, UP 1,721, and 114,986,713 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile drooling POS.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 204,642 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- thank you, Vegetable Joe, thank you.
  85. 2021 Wednesday L: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,608,157 confirmed cases, 54,663 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,798 confirmed cases, 445 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 349,245 confirmed cases, 5,141 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Rhode Island, aka the Ocean State: currently, they have 129,595 confirmed cases, 2,559 confirmed deaths, BUT NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 811,492 confirmed cases, 5,950 confirmed deaths, and 764,220 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- South Africa, the place where white farmers have bounties on their heads: 1,522,697 cases of the old Chi-Com virus, 50,906 confirmed deaths, and 1,444,282 confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, how about their numbers: 90,002 confirmed cases (our sources in Hong Kong say multiply everything by 75,000-percent and add the numbers for a total of 67,591,502 confirmed cases, 3,493,022 confirmed deaths, and 64,034,251 confirmed recoveries- and remember- these are still low-end numbers.  Note- in the U.S., the feds say ‘it’s okay’ for nursing homes residents to receive hugs from visitors once again.  Those that survived the ‘die off’ will be glad to know that.  In other news, Texas Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee warns her fellow Texans on the first day with EVERYTHING REOPENED not to go anywhere sans a mask or YOU WILL DIE.
  86. 2021 Wednesday M: Joe Biden is going to sign the $1.9 trillion ‘COVID-19 Relief Bill’, aka the PORKULUS into law, perhaps tomorrow so the markets are juicing their britches- still, we say once it goes out, everything is going to implode, perhaps by the summer.   Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 32,297.02, UP 464.28 points (+1.46%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,068.83, DOWN 4.99 points (+0.038%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,898.81, UP 23.37 points (+0.60%).  The price of GOLD is $1,725.70 per troy oz., +3.90 (+0.23%) while the price of SILVER is $26.27 per troy ounce, +0.14 (+0.54%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,203.90 per troy oz, +2.10 (+0.17%) while the price of COPPER is $4.03 per pound, 0.00 (+0.01%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,315.00 per troy oz, -4.00 (-0.17%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $64.73 per barrel, +0.29 (+0.45%)  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.50 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.90.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.   In Albanian Lek, one greenback equals 103.10.  NOTE- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.775 per gallon, $3.526 in Hawaii, and $3.208 in Washington state.  Thank you, Joe “Vegetable” Biden.
  87. 2021 Wednesday N: Disney + is removing all sorts of films from its list of cartoons for children at age 5 and under.  “Dumbo,” (1941), “Aristocats” (1970), “Lady and the Tramp” (1955), “Swiss Family Robinson” (1960), and “Jungle Book” (1967) have all been removed because Disney claims they are R-A-C-I-S-T to which we say, “Bulls**t!  So says the company where anything goes when it comes to PERVERSION.”  Look, it is important that people do not judge events of the past by those of the present.  Canceling out something rather than learning from it tosses the lessons that we can learn onto the garbage heap.  This is no different than the Nazis tossing books onto blazing bonfires, eliminating all sorts of lessons both good and bad from future generations.  The most important thing the Cancel Culture C**ksuckers should learn is that one day, fifty years from now, people will be judging YOU.  You will be canceled, if not sooner.   
  88. 2021 Wednesday O: Nigel Farage tells Greg Kelly that Meghan Markle is a manipulative actress sniveling and whining about how Baby Archie might be perceived and why he’s not a prince.  Being a great grandson of the reining monarch, he is not entitled to be a prince and thus he was given no title.  Yet, she blubbers to Oprah Winfrey that the Royal Family is R-A-C-I-S-T.  Wah, wah, wah.  Shut the hell up- AGAIN!- baby girl.   Opinion polls in Great Britain want the skank and her husband, Mr. Markle be stripped of whatever titles they were allowed to keep.  We thought the whole thing was when they bailed out on the Royal Family, their titles did not follow them.  Harry, dump this chick before she ruins your life.
  89. 2021 Wednesday P: Grant Stinchfield reports on Newsmax TV that left-wing activists (think “communists”) are now saying that “Jesus is R-A-C-I-S-T.”  Know what we say?  “F**k them!  Communists go to HELL.”  In other news of great import, the entire Democratic Party staff of the Silver State said, “Screw this” and walked out on their brand-new socialist leadership.  How can a state such as Nevada permit far-left socialist scum to take over their state?  Watch the casino business implode as it did during the rise of Fidel Castro in Cuba.   In other interesting news, self-hating Robin DiAngelo, the woman who rails against white folks turned down $10,000 speaking fee, demanding the university fork over $13,000 for a pre-recorded speech so she didn’t have to come in person to BLAST white folks for being scumbags.  What a gal.  Finally, Tucker Carlson played the main video from the Minneapolis P.D. and its interaction with George Floyd tonight.  Watching the video frame by frame shows police officers trying to calm George Floyd.  He also showed a clip from the Minneapolis P.D. manual showing how applying pressure to the neck of a person face-down following a physical interaction with cops can be calming.  We think state AG Keith Ellison is going to LOSE this case, even with mobs threatening potential jurors.  AG Ellison- restore law and order NOW.
  90. 2021 Wednesday Q: Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3541 with a $27 million jackpot on the line: 05, 06, 20, 40, 42, and Mega 27.  Out of 102,267 winning tickets, the highest winners were THREE people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $12,389 apiece.  One ticket was sold at a Chevron in South Lake Tahoe, CA, 96150; the second ticket was sold at Downtown Liquor and Market in Lodi, CA 95240, and the third was sold at a Circle K in Bakersfield, CA 93313.  Stay tuned for the Powerball results for Draw #827 with a jackpot of $155 million on the line awaiting some lucky bastard.   Here are the numbers: 17, 18, 37, 44, 53, and Power 18.  Stick around for info on the winners.   Out of 72,370 winning tickets, ONE person had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $39,947.  Congratulations.
  91. 2022 Thursday:  Aloha.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Levon Helm released his second solo album aptly titled, “Levon Helm,” on March 17, 1978.  Something you will notice as you check out solo albums by various members of the Band is that other than for Robbie Robertson, songwriting skills were lacking thus they performed covers of other songwriters’ songs or collaborated on an occasional tune.  Still, that does not mean the music ain’t good because it is.  Once again, the singer/drummer/mandolin player is joined by quality musicians such as Steve “The Colonel” Cropper (guitars), David Hood (bass), a musician who performed with Traffic as well as played on countless albums by other musicians, Barry Beckett (keyboards), also of Traffic, as well as another Traffic alum, Roger Hawkins (drums) along with several other musicians to round out the sound.  It’s a fine album with superb talent which is why we encourage everyone to seek it out, give it a good listen, and enjoy.

TODAY IN HISTORY, THURSDAY MARCH 10, 2022, BLOG POST #4,480

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

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

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


Thursday, March 10, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] Not sure when we will begin promoting the music of Boston but when we do, we will alert the readership.  Stay tuned for further developments.

[ii] We hope to promote the music of Pink Floyd and of the group’s individual members after Supertramp who is up next after we finish the music of Roxy Music and its members.

[iii] The Taliban is a prime example as to WHY we built the neutron bomb.  We need to drop it everywhere the frigging Taliban is, radiating everything with a massive burst that will diminish after a week or two.  Kill them all.  Then we can declare peace and leave civilized Afghanistan.

[iv] This is all bulls**t, we know the Guard is going nowhere.  We will have a police state in our capital until we can throw the frigging Democrats out of office.

[v] Andrew “Killer” Cuomo thought his fecal matter did not stink, his hubris was so great, his chutzpah so monumental that like Icarus, he flew too close to the Sun and crashed.  Let this dimwit’s lot in life be a lesson to everyone, to other scumbags such as Gretchen Whitmer, Phil Murphy, J.B. Pritzker, and Tom Wolf, what has happened to “Killer” Cuomo can easily happen to YOU.  Make things right now.  Confess your sins and beg forgiveness. 

ELECTION DAY IS COMING AND IT’S EXTREMELY IMPORTANT

67. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, MARCH 08, 2022

2021 Monday J: In other fascinating news, Iran threatens to RAZE Tel Aviv if Israel should attack the ‘peace-loving Islamic Republic of Iran.’ We say, NUKE the hell out of Iran- give them something to suck on in the same way that President Ronald Reagan ordered the sinking of most of their pathetic navy back in the early 1980s.

  89. 2021 Monday C: Speaking of Cuomo killing the state’s nursing home residents, former three-term Governor George Pataki, R-NY, says what Cuomo did to nursing home inmates is ‘beyond the pale’ and ‘highly criminal.’   Heck, even the New York Senate’s majority leader- Andrea Stewart-Cousins- says the guy must go and that person is a Democrat.  NOTE- we are now seeing Harvey Weinstein-like behavior as Gov. Cuomo is trying to ‘buy’ his way to ‘freedom:’ today, he floated the idea of raising taxes on wealthy New Yorkers even though his state has received $12.58 billion in federal COVID-19 money.  This is what libs do when they are in trouble- promise to jack wealthy people in their state, promise to fight for abortion at all stages of gestation and even after birth, and to crush the NRA.  Let us see what he does next.

  94. 2021 Monday H: What else is happening today- the 80th Annual Daytona Beach Bike Week kicks off today.  Next, NBA star Kobe Bryant’s rookie card sells for a cool $1.8 million.  Next, the billionaire ex-wife of Amazon business mogul Jeff Bezos- Mackenzie Scott- marries a high school teacher.  Good for him.  Moving on, famed legal scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz asks the extremely important question of the Cancel Culture- ‘Why stop with Dr. Seuss?’  Speaking of the Cancel Culture, Congressman Matt Gaetz, R-FL, says the real goal behind the “CC” is to drive people into SELF-CENSORSHIP- something free Americans will NEVER submit to, NEVER.

  96. 2021 Monday J: The GOP pushes the Biden administration to get an imprisoned U.S. Marine in Russia released and sent home.  Good luck with that, the Biden administration is as impotent as impotence can be.  In other fascinating news, Iran threatens to RAZE Tel Aviv if Israel should attack the ‘peace-loving Islamic Republic of Iran.’  We say, NUKE the hell out of Iran- give them something to suck on in the same way that President Ronald Reagan ordered the sinking of most of their pathetic navy back in the early 1980s.
  97. 2021 Monday K: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 117,060,462 confirmed cases, +459,454, 2,597,318, confirmed deaths, +7,680, and 66,132,420 confirmed recoveries, +211,728.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,293,090 confirmed cases, up 34,149 from yesterday’s reporting, 530,614 confirmed deaths, UP 1,087, and 112,744,650 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile drooling POS.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 202,137 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.   
  98. 2021 Monday L: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,599,900 confirmed cases, 54,271 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,646 confirmed cases, 445 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 347,422 confirmed cases, 5,108 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Oregon: currently, they have 157,481 confirmed cases, 2,304 confirmed deaths, BUT NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 805,116 confirmed cases, 5,917 confirmed deaths, and 758,541 confirmed recoveries. 
  99. 2021 Monday M: Somehow, the Democrats have been able to drive the markets back up on this Friday- it’s artificial, the collapse is still coming.   Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,802.44, UP 306.14 points (+0.97%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,609.16, DOWN 310.99 points (-2.41%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,821.35, DOWN 20.59 points (-0.54%).  The price of GOLD is $1,682.30 per troy oz., +4.30 (+0.26%) while the price of SILVER is $25.26 per troy ounce, -0.01 (-0.04%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,144.00 per troy oz, -8.30 (-0.72%) while the price of COPPER is $4.09 per pound, +0.00 (+0.01%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,328.50 per troy oz, +6.50 (+0.28%) Same as yesterday.  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $64.93 per barrel, -0.12 (-0.03%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.53 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 21.49.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000019.   In Taiwanese dollars, one greenback equals 28.28.
  100. 2021 Monday N: Greg Kelly reports on Newsmax that Pepe Le Pew, the “Joe Biden of cartoon characters” because of all his hands-on the female character is now CANCELED, too. Meanwhile, the White House praises the courage of Megan Markle and the individual formerly known as “Prince Harry” for sobbing their story to Oprah Winfrey.  Folks, who the f**k cares?  Hopefully, Harry will recognize his mistake sooner while there is still time to repair the self-inflicted damage than later when the royal family will never welcome him back in.  Megan sobbed that the royals worried about the color of baby Archie.  Uh, again, who cares?  Oprah don’t act so flipping shocked, you has-been.  In other news, the family of Ashli Babbitt, slain at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, by a Capitol Hill police officer for still unknown reasons is considering filing a wrongful death lawsuit against the department.   Next, Joe Biden grants temporary immigration status to Venezuelans who have fled their country for the U.S.  Finally, JOE BIDEN IS GOING TO GIVE A PRIME TIME ADDRESS THIS THURSDAY!  Glory, glory hallelujah, glory,  glory hallelujah, glory, glory hallelujah, the world is going to hear the mummy speak!  
  101. 2021 Monday O: On this spectacular 110th International Day of Women (except in crap-hole nations such as Iran, Afghanistan, and Pakistan), Burger King UK tweets out the following statement: “women belong in the kitchen.”  Ooops.  Must have been a joke. Speaking of jokes, the U.S. State Department has zipped its lips and won’t accuse the Chi-Coms of committing mass genocide against the Uighur Muslims in Xinjiang Province.  The State Department is also tiptoeing around the fact that the Chi-Coms are not honoring their commitment to a half-century of incorporation of Hong Kong- former British crown colony- by seeking to corrupt their voting system so that it resembles the authoritarian system on the mainland.  FREE Hong Kong!  FREE Taiwan!  FREE Macao!  FREE Tibet!  FREE Mainland China!  NO MORE COMMUNISM! 
  102. 2021 Monday P: General Russell Honoré concludes his report into the Capitol Hill Riots of January 6, 2021, the good (left-wing) general announces that the Capitol Police Department must have greater authority in times of crisis.  Uh, okay.  Will the increased power allow us to demilitarize our nation’s capital?  Meanwhile, Georgia state lawmakers present a bill that will terminate NO-EXCUSE absentee voting.  The Democrats won’t like this.  Still, if state government won’t enforce the state’s voting laws, what difference does it make?   
  103. 2021 Monday Q: Two of Joe Biden’s picks for top posts in the U.S. Department of Justice promise to rain hell down upon the evildoers behind Antifa- and- Black Lives Matter-instigated-and-led Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021.  Lisa Monaco- nominated to be U.S. Deputy Attorney General and Vanita Gupta- nominated to be Associate Attorney General promise to go after and crush the people threatening our democracy.  Both proclaim to keep the U.S. Department of Justice nonpartisan while assumed U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland says, ‘Donald Trump’s claims of widespread voter fraud are bogus.’  Meanwhile, Joe Biden isn’t budging from his desire to keep the ‘filibuster in place’ even as the rest of his party seeks to overturn it and to ram through all their crazy leftist bull crap ideas.  In other news, liberals are rubbing their hands in glee having heard that an investigation into ‘citizen Donald Trump’ is underway to investigate his claims the 2020 Presidential Election were rigged.  The Democrats can’t let go.
  104. 2022 Tuesday: Day 412 of the Biden Administration- stick around and discover what sort of antics the Chi-Coms and their imposed stooges in the Biden administration are up to today.  It’s going to be good!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The only American in the Band- Levon Helm- struck out on his own for a brief period while the Band was in somewhat of a hiatus.  Thus, he formed his own group which subsequently released the album, “Levon Helm and the RCO All-Stars” on April 15, 1977.  Of the 10 songs on the disc, most of them were covers which is cool because we have a wide range of musical influences here.  The band was more of an orchestra what with Levon Helm (lead and backing vocals/drums), the great Paul Butterfield (harmonicas), Steve “The Colonel” Cropper and Fred Carter Jr. (guitars), Booker T. Jones (keyboards and percussion), the “Night Tripper” aka Mac Rebennack (keyboards and gris-gris), Donald “Duck” Dunn (bass), a horn sections, strings, a conductor, and guest appearances by fellow Band mates Robbie Robertson and Garth Hudson.  We love the album, particularly the Chuck Berry cover of “Havana Moon,” which is why we encourage everyone to seek this album out wherever you can find it- you will be glad you did.  At Amazon, you can pick it up for less than $25 so what the heck?  Seek it out now…

TODAY IN HISTORY, TUESDAY MARCH 08, 2022, BLOG POST #4,476

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

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

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


Tuesday, March 08, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] Not sure when we will begin presenting the music of this famed American band- the Monkees- but when we do, we also do the solo catalogs of Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork.  Please stay tuned for more information.

[ii] We hope to share the music of the Eagles, Joe Walsh, Don Henley, Glenn Fray, and others, including Poco, sometime in the next decade.  Please remain with us.

[iii] See previous.

[iv] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  At the time however, we overlooked presenting the music of the group’s individual members- Mick Fleetwood, Peter Green, Danny Kirwan, Jeremy Spencer, Bob Welch, Lindsay Buckingham, and Stevie Nicks.  We hope to do that at some point in the near future.  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates.  We thank you.

[v] Not sure when we will get around to doing the music of Three Dog Night but if we ever return to promoting the music of famed rock bands from the 1960s and the 1970s, we sure as heck will include this stellar band, one that is still performing to this day.  We saw them in 2019 and all we can say is “Wow.”

[vi] 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.

[vii] We began promoting the music of the Jimi Hendrix Experience and Jimi Hendrix on Sunday, 22-December-2013 through Thursday, 16-January-2014.  Please check the albums out, you will enjoy them.

[viii] 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.

[ix] New York State Attorney General announced the names of the team investigating the handsy governor today.  Godspeed folks.

[x] Why are we celebrating International Women’s Day?  It’s a flipping joke when liberals want trannys to play in girls’ sports.  There is no reason to celebrate a day such as this until the Western World regains its senses.  We believe- if you want to celebrate trannys- a third category of scholastic sports should be created- tranny sports.  Let’s do that.  Then, we can celebrate International Women’s Day.

[xi] Speaking of Treasury Secretary Yellen, reports suggest she is AWOL from office.  Left-wing news channels and online sites remain mum on her whereabouts or what she might be up to while center and center-right news sites are raising questions about the aged old gal.  We would like to know ourselves. 

[xii] In a similar note- all charges pending for Breonna Taylor’s boyfriend- the target of the police raid that killed Ms. Taylor- have been dropped.   Likewise, in other connected news, the mother of Eric Garner warns that the cops will assassinate the character of the victim, meaning that the Minneapolis P.D. will point out the fact that Floyd was a thug and that he was doped up and overdosing the day of his death.  Just saying.  Grant Stinchfield of Newsmax says the prosecution will be unable to obtain a conviction of 2nd Degree Homicide because of the fact they cannot prove that Officer Chauvin was the cause of Floyd’s death.  The cause of Floyd’s death was DRUGS, primarily fentanyl but other drugs as well. 

GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES, GOD BLESS UKRAINE, AND OTHER COUNTRIES THREATENED BY AUTHORITARIAN REGIMES…

65. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, MARCH 06, 2022

57. 2017 Monday: President Donald J. Trump signs his second executive order banning visitors from six mostly ‘religion of peace’ nations but leaves Iraq out of the mix. The ban is good for 90 days. Millions of liberals go berserk around the country in protest of this sensible order.

  57. 2017 Monday: President Donald J. Trump signs his second executive order banning visitors from six mostly ‘religion of peace’ nations but leaves Iraq out of the mix.  The ban is good for 90 days.  Millions of liberals go berserk around the country in protest of this sensible order.  Meanwhile, South Korea says that North Korea has fired some missiles into the Sea of Japan, pissed off because the summit with the U.S. failed.

  60. 2020 Friday: Global health authorities now say there are 100,000 cases of the coronavirus worldwide.  China remains the epicenter but getting the truth out of the communist nation is more difficult than pulling the teeth from a living dragon.  Liberals hopes for November take another nosedive what with February jobs numbers hitting 273,000 with a drop in the unemployment numbers to 3.5%.  Meanwhile wages across the nation are up by 3-percent.  Hence the Democrats continue trying to connect President Donald Trump to the coronavirus.  Elsewhere, the president stops in tornado-ravaged Nashville while on the way to the CDC in Atlanta.  He spends time on the ground consoling the victims of the hellacious storms. 
  61. 2021 Saturday: Today is Day 46 of the Biden Regime, socialism and communism never sleeps nor does beating the rug looking for all the white supremacists the LEFT claims are lurking all over the place.  They must have their radicals mixed up- it’s the Antifa and Black Lives Matter human fecal matter bobbing up and down in the liberal crapper, the one the Chi-Coms never seem to wish to flush…late in the evening/early in the morning, Chuck Schumer’s Senate passes the massive $1.9 trillion Joe Biden PORKULUS bill with which supposedly to relieve COVID-19 suffering.  Joe, you still have a trillion languishing from the previous Chi-Vi relief bill that has not yet been spent so what the f**k?
  62. 2021 Saturday A: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 116,169,119 confirmed cases, +387,940, 2,582,075, confirmed deaths, +9,722, and 65,695,020 confirmed recoveries, +198,353.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,192,273 confirmed cases, up 63,054 from yesterday’s reporting, 527,917 confirmed deaths, UP 2,357, and 112,910,453 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile drooling POS.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 199,440 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, other than sending the J & J Chi-Vi vaccine overseas, STOP SENDING U.S. vaccines to the Third World.  Also, prevent the invasion across the southern border.

  64. 2021 Saturday C: As if things cannot get any worse for the embattled Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, Empire State’s soon-to-be-ex-governor, two of his senior female aides have thrown in the towel and left him in the lurch.  “Killer Cuomo,” just f**king resign.   Elsewhere, as illegal aliens continue swarming across the border and people become shocked by what’s going on, White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki- not the brightest bulb in any pack- says, ‘we don’t take advice from Donald J. Trump.’  You would be wise if you did.   Speaking of President Trump, he endorses South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster for another run in 2022 just as he endorses Lt. Gov. Griffin on Arkansas as that state’s next attorney-general.   West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrissey says the people must act to stop the power grab the Biden administration is carrying out against the country.    Finally, eight Senate Democrats balk at the $15 per hour minimum wage sought by the Biden administration.
  65. 2021 Saturday D: Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3540 with a $26 million at stake: 12, 18, 27, 28, 34, and Mega 19.  Out of 108,397 winning tickets, ONE person had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $38,985.  The winning ticket was sold at a Food 4 Less in Long Beach, CA 90805.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Drawing #826 with a $138 million jackpot up for grabs: 11, 31, 50, 52, 58, and Powerball 18.  Out of 69,278 winning tickets, the highest winners were three people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $12,844 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On November 01, 1975, the Band managed to shelve their differences and get back to work.  The subsequent album, “Northern Lights, Southern Cross,” featured not one, not two, but three glorious songs that make it worth owning by every fan new and old.  “Ophelia” is about a woman every man has known at one time or another while “It Makes No Difference” is a lamentable tune that defines the end of a relationship that could either be one between lovers of between band members.  “Acadian Driftwood,’ the third tune, also is one that evokes an emotional response which makes this album superb.  The band features the lineup of Rick Danko (bass, vocals, and fiddle), Robbie Robertson (guitars and vocals), Levon Helm (drums, percussion, vocals, mandolins, and tambourines), Richard Manuel (pianos, organs, and vocals), and Garth Hudson (keyboards and saxophones).  We hope you will seek this one out and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure- we think you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

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

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

ENDNOTES:

[i] We promoted the music of the Zombies, Argent, Rod Argent, and Colin Blunstone beginning on Monday, 28-October-2019 through Sunday, 05-January-2020.  Please, check them out.

[ii] We look forward to doing the music of Pink Floyd within the next two years.  The offering will include the solo efforts of the individual members, too, like David Gilmour, Roger Waters, Syd Barrett, Nicky Mason, and Rick Wright. 

[iii] When we promoted the music of It’s a Beautiful Day beginning on Thursday, 25-August-2011 through Monday, 29-August-2011 and a second round on Tuesday, 04-February-2014 through Wednesday, 05-February-2014, we should have promoted the music of Pablo Cruise, too, due to their being interconnected.  We certainly will one day.  Ah, well, please seek IABD out and consider adding them to your collection.

[iv] Vladimir Putin stole the Crimea from the Ukraine during the second term of President Barack Hussein Obama.  From 2017 on, Democrats and anti-Trumper garbage claim that President Donald J. Trump is in bed with Moscow, when in fact, it was Obama who was the bed buddy of Comrade Putin.  Shame.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!
