  57. 2015 Thursday: For the second time in three years, the U.S. Supreme Court upholds Obamacare in a 6-3 decision, outraging most Americans but causing the Obama Administration to dance the jig.  This is not right and yet, no one—including the Republican Party—will fight against it.  What do the Obamaists have on Chief Justice John Roberts? 
  58. 2016 Saturday: After the new government of Taiwan refuses to accept the One-China Policy and bow down to the commies in Beijing, the Chi-Coms sever communications with the brave island.  They must bow down and kiss the ground the Chinese Communist Party tells them to kiss.  F**k them.  IF Donald Trump wins in November, he will defend Taiwan.  If the Democrats win, it’s ‘adios amigos.’

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

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

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

171. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, JUNE 20, 2022

2008 Friday: Like poor Tibet, Nepal also is coming under the sway of the Chi-Coms which leads to massive protests in front of the Chi-Com embassy. At least 700 Tibetans were there among the crowd, all of whom were arrested with three being slapped with charges of ‘anti-Chi-Com activities.’ Folks, who runs Nepal? The government of that nation or Beijing? The world knows the answer.

  25. 1923 Wednesday: France announced it would seize the Rhineland to help Germany pay its debts from World War I.  This would be yet another massive slap in the face to the German people that would open their ears to the song of Adolf Hitler.  Stupid, stupid policy.

  27. 1940 Thursday: The 53rd U.S. Secretary of War Harry Hines Woodring, a Democrat, left office on this day.  He served under President Franklin Delano Roosevelt from September 25, 1936, until today.  Meanwhile, as the Germans continue their advance through France to keep the pressure on Paris, the French negotiators prepare to leave for Compiegne where the Nazis have brought the railroad car that the Kaiser’s representatives were forced to sign the German surrender in World War I.  Adolf Hitler is jubilant as revenge has been on his mind for 21 years.  He wants the French humiliated worse than what Imperial Germany had to suffer.
  28. 1941 Friday: The U.S. military replaced the Army Air Corps with the U.S. Army Air Forces.  In 1947, the military abolished the Air Corps by creating the United States Air Forces.  Elsewhere, the Germans and their Axis allies in Eastern Europe are preparing to launch the largest land invasion in the history of the world in two days.  Air crews are receiving their briefings, artillery targets are being registered, and the 1.5 million troops ready to cross the frontier into the Soviet Union are enjoying their final days of rest.  War is coming and the Soviets are dozing on the other side of the border.
  29. 1942 Saturday: The Afrika Korps conquers Tobruk in North Africa.  Meanwhile, Nazi Adolf Eichmann announces the deportation of Dutch Jews.  On the Eastern Front, heavy fighting continues around the Crimean fortress city of Sebastopol as German and Rumanian troops continue fighting to batter their way into the city.  Farther east, the road to Stalingrad is underway as the German spring and summer offensive is moving south with growing momentum.

  31. 1943 Sunday: Race-related rioting erupted in Detroit; the governor sent in federal troops two days later to quell the violence that resulted in more than 30 deaths.  Elsewhere, the tide of war is definitely turning against the European Axis partners as Britain’s King George VI is able to visit the stubborn island of Malta that held out for so long against Axis assaults.
  32. 1944 Tuesday: The Nazis begin the mass extermination of all Jews at Auschwitz Death Camp.  Meanwhile, the Allies are advancing on all fronts in Europe.  On the Leningrad Front, the Soviets are advancing while the Allies are advancing in France and Italy.  Fighting is fierce.  Elsewhere during World War II, Japanese naval forces retreated in the Battle of the Philippine Sea after suffering heavy losses to the American fleet.  On Saipan, American forces continue battering the Japanese defenders who cling tenaciously to every scrap of geography.  It is victory or it’s death for them.
  33. 1945 Wednesday: Heavy fighting continues in the fights for Okinawa, the Philippines, and Borneo.  Meanwhile, a U.S. carrier force is softening up the Imperial Japanese forces clinging to Wake Island, one of the first places to fall to Japan shortly after the war began.  The Japanese have been sidelined here as recapturing the island did not fit in the main war plan of taking the fight TO JAPAN so the Japanese troops defending Wake are in dire straits.
  34. 1946 Thursday: The Big Four- the United States, Great Britain, France, and the Soviet Union agree to begin the gradual withdrawal of Allied occupation forces from Italy.  The Soviets also agree to withdraw their troops from Bulgaria which although on the side of the Axis during World War II did not participate in Operation Barbarossa and also have traditionally been a Russian ally.  Still, they will be a part of the communist bloc.  It is what it is…
  35. 1947 Friday: Mob hitmen shot Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel dead at the Beverly Hills mansion of his girlfriend, Virginia Hill, apparently at the order of Mob associates.  Meanwhile, President Harry Truman vetoes the Taft-Hartley Act.  Elsewhere, in Clarksville, West Virginia, former 8th U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Howard Mason Gore dies at age 69.  A Republican, Secretary Gore served under President Calvin Coolidge from November 22, 1924, to March 04, 1925.

  57. 2008 Friday: Like poor Tibet, Nepal also is coming under the sway of the Chi-Coms which leads to massive protests in front of the Chi-Com embassy.  At least 700 Tibetans were there among the crowd, all of whom were arrested with three being slapped with charges of ‘anti-Chi-Com activities.’  Folks, who runs Nepal?  The government of that nation or Beijing?  The world knows the answer.
  58. 2009 Saturday: As the Arab Spring continues growing across the Muslim world, riot police in Tehran are finding their hands full with mobs of protesters demanding changes in their dictatorial regime.  This is ONE country that new President Barack Hussein Obama won’t provide help.  Elsewhere, jihadists near Kirkuk, Iraq, get lucky with a suicide bombing that propels 67 people up to commune with Allah far sooner than any of them anticipated while leaving at least another 200 in varying stages of suffering.  That’s the ‘religion of peace’ for you…
  59. 2010 Sunday: The Chicago Journal reports it’s been a busy weekend in President Barack Hussein Obama’s adopted hometown of the Windy City what with 40 people shot and seven of them dead.  Halfway across the world, similar issues are occurring in central Baghdad what with two car bombings ejecting at least 26 passersby up to meet with Allah sooner than any of them anticipated while leaving another 53 in varying stages of distress.
  60. 2011 Monday: The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers grants private companies the right to create new website domains and suffixes.  Elsewhere, the Anglican Church in England considers permitting openly gay clergy members to become bishops.  Well.  Elsewhere, sectarian clashes break out in East Belfast, Northern Ireland, leading to numerous people being trucked off to the hospital and others to the hoosegow.
  61. 2012 Wednesday: Hospital authorities remove former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak–reported to be in a coma–from life support.  Meanwhile, a Syrian fighter pilot lands in Jordan and the pilot seeks asylum from the ongoing civil war.  Elsewhere, as southern Israel continues to brace under an ongoing barrage of (Iranian) rockets from the Palestinians, the Israeli air force begins to carry out sustained strikes on Hamas (and Iranian) targets in the region.
  62. 2013 Thursday: Instagram offers its users the ability to upload videos to its service.  Elsewhere, the Committee on the Rights of the Child accuses E-V-I-L Israeli soldiers of torturing Palestinian children and using the poor little bastards as human shields.  (Note- what a crock of crap!).  Elsewhere, in the NBA Finals, the Miami Heat beat the San Antonio Spurs 4 games to 3 by a final score of 95-88 successfully defending their title from the previous year.  Knuckle-dragging cretin LeBron James is declared the MVP for the second year in a row.
  63. 2014 Friday: Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko initiates a 7-day cease-fire, allowing troops to defend themselves but not to attack; during the cease-fire, separatists can turn in weapons and receive amnesty; so far, rebels have rejected the offer.  Elsewhere, the Obama administration rushes 300 U.S. troops to Iraq to help that government’s forces battle the ISIS thugs in the oil-refining city of Baiji.   Light these scum-sucking bastards UP.
  64. 2015 Saturday: After white racist Dylann Storm Roof murders nine African Americans at the church in South Carolina earlier in the week, mass protests break out demanding the removal of the Confederate battle flag from the grounds of the Capitol building.   Meanwhile, in southern Pakistan, a heat wave peaks killing at least 2,000 people from heat stroke and dehydration.   Elsewhere, in Japan, one-thousand female robots named “Pepper” sell out in under one minute at $1,600 per unit; so says creator SoftBank Robotics Corp.
  65. 2016 Monday: The U.S. Supreme Court- noting that it has already reviewed other such bans on ‘assault weapons’ (ALL weapons are ‘assault weapons’ whether they be a gun or a screwdriver or even fists)- refuses to hear other states’ bans such as Connecticut and New York.  What we need is a universal permit to carry arms, both out in the open and concealed.  Cleansing the nation of ‘gun-free zones’ would also enhance the safety of every American.  Meanwhile, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees reports that the number is higher than ever what with endless wars, climate disasters, and economic impoverishment: 65.3 million people (which the Democrats want to bring to the U.S.)
  66. 2017 Tuesday: Following his arrest for driving under the influence, Tiger Woods checks into a rehab clinic to deal with his pain medication dependency and his ongoing sleep disorders.   Elsewhere, as outrage continues to grow over the death of 22-year-old American tourist Otto Warmbier at the hands of North Korean jailers, Young Pioneers Tours, the firm taking foreigners into the hellhole known as the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea says it ‘won’t be taking any other Americans into that godforsaken country as the risk is simply too high.’  (Note- if you remember, young Mr. Warmbier visited the nation, removed a poster from a hotel room wall for a souvenir and then underwent arrest, a bulls**t trial, imprisonment, and just before he died, Kim Jong Un sent his catatonic body home to his parents).
  67. 2018 Wednesday: Bowing to pressure from his political enemies and armies of wailing illegal aliens, President Donald J. Trump signs an executive order ending separation of families at the border, a policy that began under the previous administration but which no one conveniently remembers.   Meanwhile (and this is a good one!), the Chi-Coms express their regrets that the United States is withdrawing from the bulls**t U.N. Human Rights Council.  With dictators, thugs, criminals, and communists making up its membership, the organization is little more than a joke.
  68. 2019 Thursday: Leader of communist China, Xi Jinping, travels to North Korea to visit with Kim Jong Un in Pyongyang, the first Chinese leader to travel to the S-hole country in 14 years.  In other news, the Iranians commit an overt act of war when their military shoots down a U.S. surveillance drone which they claim trespassed into their airspace.  Almost immediately, the military-industrial-political complex in the United States as well as Democrats and pro-war RINOs begin banging the drum for President Donald J. Trump to launch yet another unnecessary Middle Eastern war.  Wow.
  69. 2020 Saturday: President Donald J. Trump kicked off his official 2020 re-election bid with a massive rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  What a barn burner, he seems unstoppable.  Moving on, here are today’s stats for the Xi Jinping special Wuhan bat flu virus, first the globe: 8,546,919 confirmed cases, 456,726 confirmed deaths, and 4,195,274 confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 2,295,615 confirmed cases, 121,441 confirmed deaths, and 714,961 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day possesses chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 169,309 confirmed cases, 5,424 confirmed deaths, but as has become the norm, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 762 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 640 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for the CHOP state, Washington: 28,163 confirmed cases, 1,265 confirmed deaths, but sadly, like California, moron Gov. Jay Inslee will NOT REPORT the number of confirmed recoveries.
  70. 2020 Saturday A: Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sissi warns Ankara, Turkey, that IF Turkish backed Libyan thugs attack Sirte, the Egyptian army would immediately strike out and destroy the Libyan rebels causing problems in their next-door neighbor.  The Turkish president had no clue as to what to say when faced with a genuinely formidable threat and so remained silent.  Good for you, President al-Sissi!
  71. 2020 Saturday B: In House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s hometown of California, a violent mob of leftist ‘protesters’ tore down a statue of General (and President) Ulysses S. Grant.  Unbeknownst to these ignorant Black Lives Matter and Antifa trash rioters, Grant was the guiding military light of the Civil War on the northern side.  He freed slaves and was a strong proponent of recruiting newly freed blacks to serve in the Union army.  It is clear that these so-called ‘protesters’ are not about fighting for civil rights but are Marxists-Leninists in need of immediate extermination.  Time for good Americans to stand up and begin fighting back against this communist scum.  This is what we will get if “Pro-China Joe” Biden wins the White House in November.  VOTE TRUMP!
  72. 2021 Sunday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 178,960,779 confirmed cases, +14,417, 3,875,601 confirmed deaths, +8,968 and 163,779,820 confirmed recoveries, +386,650.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 34,401,712 confirmed cases, UP 8,542 from yesterday’s reporting, 617,083 confirmed deaths, UP 166, [xiii] and 28,694,843 confirmed recoveries, UP 18,439.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [xiv]  
  73. 2021 Sunday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 299,177 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 160,472 deaths  
  74. 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: 3,808,305 confirmed cases, 63,318 confirmed deaths, and 2,069,775 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,356,248 confirmed cases, 37,555 confirmed deaths, and 2,141,281 confirmed recoveries, more or less the SAME numbers.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 37,284 confirmed cases, 511 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 449,446 confirmed cases, 5,866 confirmed deaths, and 220,934 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Oregon: they have 206,850 confirmed cases, 2,756 confirmed deaths, and 187,292 confirmed recoveries.[xv]   
  75. 2021 Sunday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,830 confirmed cases, 6,430 confirmed deaths, and 833,061 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country-  Malta, 122nd country on the list: 30,588 cases of the virus, 420 confirmed deaths and 30,139 confirmed recoveries.[xvi]     
  76. 2021 Sunday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,290.08, DOWN 533.37 points (-1.58%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,030.38, DOWN 130.97 points (-0.92%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,166.45, DOWN -55.41 points (-1.31%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $71.50 per barrel, -0.14 (-0.20%).  The price of GOLD is $1,763.90 per troy oz., -5.10 (-0.29%) while the price of SILVER is $25.85 per troy ounce, -0.12 (-0.48%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,035.40 per troy oz, -5.60 (-0.54%) while the price of COPPER is $4.12 per pound, -0.04 (-0.84%).[xvii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,465.42 per troy oz, -31.31 (-1.25%).[xviii] The price of RHODIUM is $22,000.00 per troy oz., -750.00 (-3.30%). The price of NEODYMIUM is $590,000.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%). [xix]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000028.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.45 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.66.     In Myanmar Kyat, one greenback equals 1,642.00 and in Eritrean Nakfa, a buck equals 15.00 and in Namibian Dollar, one dollar equals 14.24 of theirs.[xx]        
  77. 2021 Sunday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.229 per gallon, $2.947 in Florida, $3.987 in Hawaii, and $3.633 in Washington state.[xxi]    Let’s look at one other location- North Carolina: $2.880.  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- Argentina: $3.833 per U.S. Gallon.[xxii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,429,862,051,238 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxiii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Canada, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is France with $111 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position).[xxiv]
  78. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day #89 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of America’s number one problem and to have yet shown up for a single day on the job.  Ah, well, Benny Johnson of Newsmax says that Customs and Border Patrol has arrested numerous terrorists on the terrorist watchlist as well as all sorts of criminals- especially sexual criminals- and yet more continue coming.  In other news we believe is related to the border, a Houston deputy’s home was invaded in a pre-dawn assault and his wife and 4-year-old stepdaughter shot and seriously wounded by unknown perps.  A week or so ago, news appeared that said the cartels were going to target the homes and families of Lone Star State law enforcement officers.   Thank you, Joe “F**king” Biden.
  79. 2021 Sunday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Speaking of the mess, Rep. August Pfluger, R-TX 11th congressional district, says that ‘illegal aliens are overrunning the 29 inland counties he represents.’  (Note- we urge Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, to put former Sheriff Joe Arpaio in charge of all holding pens for the illegal aliens).  Elsewhere, Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, is seeking to join Florida and Idaho in sending law enforcement to help aid Arizona and Texas in repelling the illegal alien invasion.  Good.  Every RED STATE governor must send troops to defend the country.  This is akin to the emergency that surrounded the Alamo, only this time, the GOOD GUYS are NOT going to lose to the barbarians.
  80. 2021 Sunday H: Foreign News / Overseas News– Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett says the ‘world powers must wake up to the dangers of the Iran nuclear deal.’
  81. 2021 Sunday I: Political News I– Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, says that the Democrats’ ‘election reform bill’ is the ‘largest power grab in the history of the United States.’  Next, the Des Moines Register reports the results of a new poll: 64-percent of Iowans would like to see Senator Chuck Grassley retire instead of running for another term.  In other political news, Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, is slapping back at Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci and some Fake News media outlets for discounting COVID-19 treatments such as hydroxychloroquine.  Most of the Americans who ‘succumbed’ to the disease most likely wouldn’t have provided they’d been given Plaquenil® at the first signs of the Wuhan lab-concocted bat virus.
  82. 2021 Sunday J: Political News II– The person challenging Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, is a New York attorney, Matthew Putorti.  Previous to this, he was a ‘registered foreign agent for the jihadist state of Qatar.’  Wow.  Where do the Democrats uncover scumbags such as this?
  83. 2021 Sunday K: Miscellaneous News I– Washington state Native Americans are carting a 5,000-pound, hand-carved totem pole across the United States, to arrive in Washington, D.C., sometime in July where it will be on display throughout the summer.  The goal is to bring greater awareness to the protection of sacred lands to the indigenous peoples of the United States.
  84. 2021 Sunday L: Economic News– Economist Stephen Moore says that the Federal Reserve is way behind the curve on rising inflation which some experts claim is at or near 12-percent.  This is a tax on EVERYONE including those least equipped to pay for it.
  85. 2022 Monday: Folks, today is Sunday, Father’s Day Sunday, let’s hope it’s a slow news day as all the baby mamas will bring all their bastard brats to meet their daddies doing time in America’s hoosegows, today.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next Beach Boys album came out on June 12, 1983: “Rarities.”  Sooner or later, every band still performing who began in the early 1960s compiled a collection of so-called ‘rarities,’ thus we have this fabulous compendium of surf, sun, and fun music.  So, what do we have here?  Well, we begin with the Lennon-McCartney classic, “With a Little Help from My Friends,” followed by the Box Tops classic, “The Letter.”  After that, we have an alternate take of Stevie Wonder’s “I Was Made to Love Her,” followed by Brian Wilson’s “You’re Welcome.”  After that, we have “The Lord’s Prayer,” followed by “Bluebirds over the Mountain,” an alternate take, followed by a Dennis Wilson-penned tune, “Celebrate the News.”  We have an alternate version of “Good Vibrations” and gobs of other glorious tunes all lovingly compiled from the archives of this legendary group such as “Land Ahoy,” a live version of “All I Want to Do,” and several other unique and enjoyable cuts.  Seek this one out and add it to your daily playlist of the absolute best in summertime music.  You will be glad you did.
