  48. 2014 Monday: The U.S. Treasury is issuing rules to hinder companies from moving their headquarters outside the country to save on taxes; the rules may affect pending deals, such as Burger King’s plan to move to Canada after merging with Tim Horton’s restaurant chain.  Meanwhile, the United States and five Arab nations launched airstrikes against the Islamic State group- aka Daish- in Syria waves of planes and Tomahawk cruise missiles against an array of targets.

Trump.  Roast in hell, Senator.
  52. 2018 Saturday: At a military parade in Ahvaz, Iran, four gunmen open fire on Revolutionary Guard troops marching past killing at least 25 onlookers in the melee.  They are fighting for freedom in the totalitarian dictatorship of Islamist Iran. 
  53. 2019 Sunday: Following yet another leak in which an unnamed White House military aide- later identified at Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman[iv]– said that ‘Donald Trump spoke with the Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky about investigating “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s son, Hunter[v], and his financial shenanigans in that former Soviet republic,’ President Trump says, ‘Yeah, I did that.’  He explained the phone call, one he identified as ‘perfect’ and which many others did as well, yet the Democrats would use this event as the catalyst for their failed impeachment of the 45th president after the New Year.
  54. 2020 Tuesday: Utah Senator Mitt Romney came out this morning and announced that he would support President Donald J. Trump’s nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court, the one to replace deceased liberal icon, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, ‘as long as he or she is a strict constructionist.’   Conservatives want NO judicial activism which means they want judges who will APPLY the law rather than to CREATE the law or to look at supreme court rulings in OTHER countries for guidance as many liberals have said they do.  Meanwhile, voters continue demanding that former Vice President “Pro-China Joe” Biden release his list of potential Supreme Court justices, an action he continually opposes.  Everyone believes disgruntled gubernatorial loser Stacey Abrams is at the top of his list.   Regarding the court fight to come, mobs of angry Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and other Marxist trash continue protesting outside the homes of Senate Majority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham.  What a bunch of losers, blow them away with water cannons and reestablish law and order.  Finally, President Trump says he will announce his nominee on Saturday.
  55. 2020 Tuesday A: The city of Louisville, Kentucky, enacts a ‘state of emergency’ as it awaits the decision as to whether or not to charge the officers involved in the death of Breonna Taylor with some sort of crime.  As you should recall, law enforcement entered Taylor’s apartment with a NO knock warrant and Taylor’s boyfriend opened fire with a handgun which drew reciprocal fire from the cops, killing Ms. Taylor in the process.  We expect they won’t be charged or fired for simply doing their jobs.  Taylor’s family was the recent recipient of a $12 million settlement.
  56. 2020 Tuesday B: NYPD Police Officer Biamadjie Angwang underwent arrest today on charges of spying for communist China.  Wow.  Almost every day, someone of Chinese extraction or descent is arrested for spying on behalf of China.  One can understand WHY the U.S. government rounded up and interned American Japanese during the early years of World War II.  We had better clean out this nest of Chi-Com snakes AND you DON’T think they commies aren’t colluding with the Democrats?  Please!  Speaking of police matters, Chicago Mayor Lori “Frog Face” Lightfoot, reeling from the destruction of parts of her city which, she gave the green light to, is now going after ALL parking offenders and hammering them with fines.  Tax increases must come from somewhere!
  57. 2020 Tuesday C: A recent PEW Poll says that support for the communist Black Lives Matter movement has plummeted since June, from 67-percent to 55-percent and if you seek the truth, it is much lower than that seeing as how many people tremble in fear at expressing their true feelings.  We believe Black Lives Matter must be eradicated like eradicating venereal disease.  Speaking of mobs, mobs are penetrating the suburbs of New York City and going after citizens.  Keep it up, you ignorant dumb bastards, you continue pushing more and more voters into the Trump camp.
  58. 2020 Tuesday D:  British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announces the rollback of the lifting of restrictions seeing as how cases of the Xi Jinping Yellow Fever-Flu are going back UP.  Thank you, Chi-Coms for infecting the world.  It is time the world returns to the Two-China Policy or better yet, recognize Taiwan as the LEGITIMATE China and the Chi-Coms as the CRIMINAL CHINA.
  59. 2020 Tuesday E: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 31,444,163 confirmed cases, UP by 262,381 cases, 967,305 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,039 deaths, and 21,551,157 confirmed recoveries, UP by 250,656 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 6,968,226 confirmed cases, UP by 35,909 new cases, 203,446 confirmed deaths, UP by 464 new deaths, and 3,759,857 confirmed recoveries, UP by 36,282 new recoveries.  We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.  It is also clear that misreporting the news has Americans believing at least 30 million Americans (“Pro-China Joe” Biden says 200,000,000)- OR MORE- have died from Xi Jinping’s Chi-Com Flu which is not true which was said a week ago, so it shows misinformation is doing its job among the gullible and ill-informed citizenry.
  60. 2020 Tuesday F: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 793,737 confirmed cases, 15,126 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 11,590 confirmed cases, 120 confirmed deaths, and 4,888 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 86,889 confirmed cases, 2,137 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 455,938 confirmed number of cases, 32,690 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.   The governor of New York, the drooling moron Andrew Cuomo continues trying to blame President Donald J. Trump for all the deaths when he is the one who sent Bat Flu-infected people into rest homes where the most vulnerable people are, uh, we mean, were. PUT CUOMO ON TRIAL! 
  61. 2020 Tuesday G: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there.  Here they are: 193,374 confirmed cases, 1,285 confirmed deaths, and 136,780 confirmed recoveries.  Watch out for those hidden tunnels the Hamas scum love using to penetrate Israel and kidnap its citizens, Mo!

  63. 2020 Tuesday H: Tucker Carlson continues reporting that questionable billionaires such as George Soros- the former Hungarian Nazi- continues funding as much of the anti-American behavior violent street mobs are committing on behalf of the Democratic Party and their masters in Beijing.  Last night, Mr. Carlson showed film of Soros and today, Carlson announced that other billionaires have rushed to Soros’ aid and that America’s billionaire class is among the real enemies we face as a FREE nation.   Our blogs are personally aware that Google CEO Sundar Pichai- a very wealthy man- allegedly works on behalf of the Chi-Coms and does everything he can to stifle free speech not only in the United States but around the rest of the Free World, too.

We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[vii]   
  65. 2021 Wednesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 383,560 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 20,518 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xii]

[xiii]    Let us look at one other Kentucky: $2.963.  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- Iceland: $7.357 per U.S. Gallon.[xiv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,792,180,393,291 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Singapore, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Saudi Arabia 1 with $180 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  70. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– As everyone continues asking the extremely pertinent question as to WHERE the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris is, today is Day No. 180 for this sham ‘vice president’ to be in charge of the absolute calamity befalling the border and Day No. 87 since her sole visit to the border.  “Kooky,” where oh where art thou?  Do you job, skank.  Next, here are the numbers for the CRISIS occurring on the border as presented by One America News.  First, here is the cost of caring for the human garbage for just this day: $538,977,792.  Second, here is the cost of caring for these Third World invaders for the year so far: $289,854,095,360.  Third, here is the number of illegals who have swarmed into the U.S. this year: 2,970,772, rapidly approaching 3 flipping million trash.  Finally, here is the CONSERVATIVE ESTIMATE for the shocking numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the U.S. as we speak, sucking away at the American taxpayers’ teats: 36,970,772. [xvi] (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  71. 2021 Wednesday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador gave Joe Biden a verbal poke in the eye today when he said, “Enough talk.  It’s time to do something on the border” as our southern neighbor is being overrun with the dregs of the Third World.

  72. 2021 Wednesday H: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– The Mormon church is going to require all attendees at its services to wear masks as the Chi-Com virus cases continue to skyrocket.   Meanwhile, in Congress, hearings are underway to determine the extent of damage being done to America’s children via mask and Chi-Vi vaccine mandates.  Elsewhere, TikTok bans podcaster Megan McGlover for questioning Joe Biden’s vaccine mandates.  Ms. McGlover happens to be a BLACK woman and yet, the Chi-Com spy app closed her down.
  73. 2021 Wednesday I: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $43.95 (2) AstraZeneca $58.74 (3) Johnson & Johnson $163.93 (4) BioNTech $339.26 (5) Moderna $440.72.  Yes, the HAITIAN INVASION folks don’t have to take the vaccines, nor do they have to show any form of being COVID-19 free.  However, the Biden regime continues pushing vaccines for everyone as well as boosters.  IF you want to know WHY, look at the fact that the regime just bought one-billion doses of the vaccine to distribute worldwide.  The Benjamins are going to be flowing back into the pockets of every elected Democrat and RINO politician.
  74. 2021 Wednesday J: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $85.27 (2) General Dynamics: $193.75 (3) Boeing: $216.98 (4) Lockheed Martin: $341.73 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $348.52.
  75. 2021 Wednesday K: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Ansell Ltd.: $34.85 (2) DuPont: $68.27 (3) Honeywell: $217.02 (4) 3M: $179.84 (5) Teijen: $1,597.00.
  76. 2021 Wednesday L: Artificial (Fake) Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News– (1) Beyond Meat: $113.78 (2) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $63.22 (3) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $26.55.
  77. 2021 Wednesday M: Joe Biden News I– As Joe Biden continues having problems getting his faulty agenda shoved through to fruition, he brought in Democrats from both the House and Senate to bust some balls to get the bogus $3.5 trillion infrastructure bill passed.  Screw him.  Meanwhile, as ‘Rome’ continues to burn down all around him, the usurper in the White House took another slap to the face today when new polls show that his numbers have dropped to 43-percent approval which means in truth, they are between 23-33-percent.  NO one likes Joe, not even his fellow Democrats.
  78. 2021 Wednesday N: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– Joe Biden called French President Emanuel Macron today, sucked up, apologized for driving the economic dagger in the neck of France over doing a backdoor deal with Australia and Great Britain to supply nuclear submarine technology Downunder, and in so doing, the French have agreed to return their ambassador to Washington, D.C.  Still, Joe has problems what with the House Republicans filing articles of impeachment against the feeble dictator.
  79. 2021 Wednesday O: Political News I– Politico finally verifies that the Hunter Biden laptop story is indeed true as reported all along.  The New York Post- the legendary newspaper that broke the story last year- lampoons Politico by saying ‘we’re shocked.’  Meanwhile, the Democrats are upset that without help from the GOP, their efforts to defund the police and to then replace them with federal police are going into the crapper.  
  80. 2021 Wednesday P: Political News II– We learned today that former President George W. Bush is going to support the re-election bid of soon-to-be-former Rep. Liz “The Loser” Cheney, RINO-WY At-Large congressional district.  Sadly, we know WHY President Bush is doing this because his former vice president is her father but still- haven’t the RINOs learned their lessons yet?  Average Republicans do not like RINOs.  It would be better if RINOs just changed the ‘R’ after their names to a ‘D.’  Speaking of Dems, after House Democrats yanked funding for Israel’s Iron Dome missile protection system from the budget reconciliation bill, Senate Dems are returning the billion-dollar aid package as a standalone bill.  Thank God NOT ALL of the Democrats are vicious Anti-Semites.  
  81. 2021 Wednesday Q: Political News III– In some shocking news today- if true- the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services won’t confirm the employment of Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams who served in the Trump administration.  Wow.  Is this the path down which, we want to go, Democrats?   Speaking of Trump, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, is trying to repair the growing rift between President Trump and failed (and sometime Trumper) Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell.  Senator Graham, there is NO repairing the rift- Senator McConnell is like President George W. Bush: a LOSER.
  82. 2021 Wednesday R: Political News IV– Rep. Ashley Hinson, R-IA 1st congressional district, told Newsmax today that low polling for Joe Biden shows that citizens of her state have had enough of the usurper in the White House.  Meanwhile, another Iowan- Senator Joni Ernst- revealed her new bill- the Prime Cuts Act- ‘Cuts’ standing for Cu Unnecessary Transactions and Spending with which to clean up the bloated federal government.  We wish you luck with your bill.  Finally, it appears that Virginia gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin is leading Democrat and former Clinton ‘bagman’ Terry McAuliffe in the running.
  83. 2021 Wednesday S: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– A new report says that murders in the United States jumped by 29-percent in 2020, the BIGGEST increase since record-keeping began.  In other crime-related news, St. Louis, Missouri, attorneys Mark and Patricia McCloskey face the loss of their law licenses, even after Governor Mike Parson pardoned them.  This should tell everyone that leftist bar associations work against the rights of their members if their politics are NOT WOKE enough.
  84. 2021 Wednesday T: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto And Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3597 what with a $19 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner.  Here are the numbers: 04, 06, 26, 39, 41, and Mega 12.  Out of 110,890 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person with FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $37,267.  The winning ticket was sold at Esquire Liquor in Glendale, CA 91203.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #888 with a jackpot of $490 million up for grabs: 20, 40, 47, 55, 63, and Powerball 05.  Out of 117,939 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $245,101 apiece.  The Washington state Super Lotto Draw with $2.8 million apiece, 06, 15, 17, 22, 24, and 33.  Out of 8,172 winning tickets, the highest winners were 12 people who had FIVE numbers out of SIX for a prize of $1,000 apiece.
  85. 2022 Thursday:  Yesterday, I was discussing the 1979 Vela Incident, the atomic detonation in the southern South Atlantic that occurred on this very day.  NO one know who the culprit was, but we suspect it was Taiwan.  The Chi-Coms on the mainland have been making a great deal of noise about retaking Taiwan but there is no way, the island of Formosa is ever going to return to the fold.  After all, Taipei is the actual ruler of the mainland having been forced out by massive numbers of crazed, underfed, and out-of-control communist mobs back in 1949.  Until the United States abandoned Taiwan in favor of currying favor with the Chi-Coms back in the 1970s with much of the world following suit, Taiwan was the true heir of mainland China.  Once the world abandoned the island in favor of the mainland and chucked the Two-China Policy onto the garbage, the Taiwanese have been left to fend for themselves.  As I said yesterday, I suspect Taiwan is prepared for the Chi-Coms to invade as others of my colleagues have said the same.  Others have said that vast drone swarms would also disable, cripple, and then lead to the destruction of any invasion fleet bold enough to cross water five times the distance of what Adolf Hitler and the Nazi war machine faced in 1940.  Sure, the Chi-Coms can fly into Taiwan airspace and circle their vessels around the island in a threatening manner but when push comes to shove, most dictators are cowardly thugs and Xi Jinping is no frigging different.  Let me know your mind- Chef Kilgore Randalini.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

In some ways, Cheap Trick was struggling to keep up with the times- and the 1980’s were a cauldron of change for many bands.  Many bands that originated in the 1960’s was either struggling to keep up or had thrown in the towel and would return in another decade or two to become oldies acts.   Cheap Trick had the advantage of coming out of the mid-1970’s and burst onto the scene with their first album as the saviors- along with the Cars and a few others- of rock-and-roll.  On November 17, 1986- with yet another different producer in two- the band released, “The Doctor.”  NO massive hits on this album so the record company was pulling out its hair seeking a rebirth of the 1970’s success.  Sadly, it was not found here.  Once again, the lineup remains Robin Zander (lead vocals and rhythm guitar), Rick Nielsen (lead and rhythm guitars, backing vocals), Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion), and Jon Brant (bass, backing vocals), along with a keyboardist and a backup vocalist.  Still, we love this album and know that longtime readers of the AICPENDBLOG.COM will love it, too.  Seek it out ASAP.

[i] No clue as to whether we will ever do the music of Whitesnake, but you can bet we will do them prior to EVER doing the garbage of Adam Levine- the Illustrated Man- and his s-hole band, Maroon Five.  Perhaps sometime in the next 50 years?

[ii] We began offering the music of Deep Purple on Tuesday, 20-March-2018 and concluded this lengthy offering on Sunday, 08-July-2018. 

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

[iv] Lt. Col. Vindman and his ‘testimony’ in the build-up to impeachment has to be one of the most embarrassing episodes in which, a uniformed member of the U.S. military has ever engaged, and we wished that he had been stationed on the North Slope of Alaska or on Midway Island for the remainder of his career.  What a scumbag. 

[v] Hunter Biden, known crack head, crooked financial guy who followed his daddy around the world sucking up money from the Chi-Coms, the Ukrainians, and anyone else from whom he could needs to answer loads of questions about HIS activities, both on behalf of himself and his dad.

[xvi] Folks, since the inception of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day back in 2009, we said back then that the numbers of Untermensch in the U.S. back then was between 35-50 million illegal aliens whereas now, we believe that when you take into account the current invasion combined with the numbers of illegals who have been running amok since the 1960s onward in the Continental United States as well as in Hawaii and Alaska, there is between 75-100 million illegals.  We must round this scum up, imprison them, and then launch an Operation Wetback II like the one back in the 1950s where we scoop them all up and dump them in Mexico.  They are NOT our problem, nor will we allow the usurper in the White House to make it our problem.  The time to resist is NOW.

250. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 07, 2022

2021 Tuesday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News- A new report says that the numbers of trapped Americans left behind in Afghanistan is far more than the Biden regime is reporting. Lying bastard. We suspect everyone understands this. Rep. Darrell Issa, R-CA 50th congressional district, says the numbers are far closer to 500 or more than the low numbers the Biden regime continues spewing.

  63. 2019 Saturday:  As the Indian Space Agency’s Chandrayaan-2 lunar lander approaches the moon’s surface, contact with it suddenly is lost.  No one knows if it veered off course or if it crashed on the surface of the moon.  Had India accomplished this feat, they would have followed on the heels of the United States, the Soviet Union, and communist China.  Meanwhile, bogus reports claimed that President Donald J. Trump canceled a ‘planned Camp David meeting with the Taliban.’  Hmmm, why would you meet with the scumbag jihadists on U.S. soil?  That would be granting the murderous pond scum some sort of equality which the homicidal thugs do not deserve. 
  64. 2020 Monday: Rioting in major Democrat-controlled cities carries over today in this long Labor Day weekend.  Dr. Oscar Odom- a former NYPD detective says that ‘if leadership in these cities would remove the handcuffs placed atop the police, the rioting would stop.’  Speaking of New York City, we learn that during the War on Cops, only 20-percent of all shootings are ever solved- no wonder people are moving elsewhere in record numbers.  Meanwhile, various Democrat secretaries of state around the country warn that November’s elections results could take anywhere from weeks to possibly months to compile with which to make the results known.   Finally, California’s worst senator and current Democratic Party vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris says there is ‘no way she will trust any Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine if Trump is the one behind it.’  Wow.  Speaking of Harris, recent polls swear that she and her running mate “Pro-China Joe” Biden lead Trump-Pence in national polls by 48.3-percent to 45.2-percent.  Speaking of polling, back in 2016 Hillary was leading Trump in 104 out of 122 national polls.

  75. 2021 Tuesday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– A new report says that the numbers of trapped Americans left behind in Afghanistan is far more than the Biden regime is reporting.  We suspect everyone understands this.   Rep. Darrell Issa, R-CA 50th congressional district, says the numbers are far closer to 500 or more than the low numbers the Biden regime continues spewing.   Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-NY 22nd congressional district, says that slobbering Joe Biden is ‘bowing down to both the Taliban and the communist Chinese.’  Meanwhile, as more and more Afghanis take to the streets protesting the Taliban takeover, the murderous scum announce the formation of a new hardliner government to persecute their citizens.  NOW is the time to eradicate the Taliban, freedom-loving peoples of Afghanistan.  Finally, Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, says that ‘Joe Biden will grant the Taliban concessions to turn the page.’

(Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  Immigration officials report that human traffickers are flooding the United States with illegals from South America.  Meanwhile, a new bill in California seeks to end the prison-to-ICE deportation line.  Why?  So, we can maintain illegal alien criminals in the U.S. permanently?

  80. 2021 Tuesday K: Voting Integrity-Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Texas Governor Greg Abbott, Republican, drove a dagger into election fraud in the Lone Star State when he signed the elections integrity bill into law today.  Already Democrats are going to judges seeking to overturn it.  You see, they love stealing elections which is why they are hoping the criminal H.R. 1 and S 1 will make it into being at the federal level.
  81. 2021 Tuesday L: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– Things are not looking good for the egregious slime ball Joe Biden when college football fans filling entire football stadiums begin chanting, “F**k Joe Biden” at the tops of their lungs.  How flipping amazing to see the young Americans finally begin waking up to the fact that with the usurper Joe Biden in the White House, we have a big, frigging problem.  The man MUST GO NOW!
  82. 2021 Tuesday M: Joe Biden Regime News I– U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken says that ‘all Americans and Afghan allies will be permitted by the Taliban to leave Afghanistan.’  Uh, okay, then why are jetliners packed with refugees being evacuated from that crap hole country remaining on the tarmac at Mazar-i-Sharif?  Rep. Markwayne Mullin, R-OK 2nd congressional district, said Blinken lied when he took credit for freeing four Americans hiding in Afghanistan.  WTF?  Secretary “Bullshit” Blinken then had the cojones to DEFEND the Taliban, saying they were ‘not holding anyone who wanted to leave against their will.’  Yup, Mr. Secretary, they all want to remain in Afghanistan and have their heads sawn off by animalistic barbarians.  What is wrong with you?   What we do know is that the U.S. State Department has ordered embassies in the area NOT to accept private rescue flights into neighboring countries.  What is up with that?
  83. 2021 Tuesday N: Joe Biden Regime News II– Meanwhile, as the economy continues imploding, U.S. Labor Secretary Marty Walsh said today that the economy might not return to what it was before their Chi-Com allies let COVID-19 loose onto an unsuspecting world until sometime toward the end of the year.
  84. 2021 Tuesday O: Political News I– Rep. Matt Waltz, R-FL 6th congressional district, said that ‘what Joe Biden has done in Afghanistan is to have created a terrorist superstate.’  Amen.   Elsewhere, three former U.S. Navy SEALS are running for office in 2022: former Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, Republican, is running in Montana, Derrick Van Orden is running in Wisconsin, and Eli Crane is running in Arizona.  All are seeking congressional seats, and all are Republicans.
  85. 2021 Tuesday P: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1692 what with a $345 million jackpot on the line: 15, 17, 25, 32, 53, and Mega 12.  Out of 110,841 winning tickets, the highest winners were THREE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $9,266 apiece.
  86. 2022 Wednesday:  I’m going to make a suggestion to President Trump: Sir, we love you and we know the Democrats stole the 2020 Presidential Election.  The proof of that horrifying fact exists virtually everywhere and everyone with honesty knows what happened in the aftermath of Election Day 2020 was as fraudulent as it comes.  However, I would like to say this- don’t talk about the election, leave it be for now.  Rather, talk about upcoming elections and what our country must do to make them as honest and as secure as they can be.  Many of my colleagues and I believe the nation requires a NEW Constitutional Amendment that will forever enshrine our method of voting.  Yes, state legislatures control voting but we need unifying things that future legislatures and corrupt politicians cannot overturn such as PHOTO ID for voting.  Everyone requires photo ID to participate in everything else in society, so it should be for voting.  We need to use ONLY paper ballots and only absentee ballots for those who apply for them.  Mail-in voting must disappear as should drop-boxes.  Elections must be complete by midnight on Election Day.  NO ballots pouring in post-Election Day.  The IRS doesn’t accept late tax returns without penalties thus there should be NO post-Election Day ballots.  We must ban electronic voting machines, we must provide sufficient voting sites to handle the nation’s elections, we must ban EARLY VOTING just as we must ban electioneering within 50 yards of a polling place.  Vote counting must feature members of every political party within the state and transparency must reign supreme.  NO boarding up of windows, NO preventing monitors from being close to the count, and NO throwing of one party’s monitors out while keeping the others within.  Remember- we are a constitution-based representational republic, NOT a DEMOCRACY as Democrats bray like the scum they are.  Anyone legally unable to cast a vote who attempts or does cast a vote should receive 10-year prison sentence sans any time off for good behavior.  Illegal aliens must be imprisoned and then deported.  Minimum age should be set at 18.  Mr. Trump let’s forge ahead with what must be done to save our country and for now let the travesty of 2020 alone…for now.  You deserve at least TWO terms due to the Democrats fighting you tooth and nail on the first and the election theft of the second.  We must find a way to see that you do get another eight years.  Chef James “JT” Tobiason.

Trump for comments he made about the crappy job the city’s highest civil servant for being such a worthless putz.   He claims the president has created ‘hate and division.’  Meanwhile, Acting Homeland Security Director Chad Wolf says ‘all options’ are on the table for ending the violence afflicting major and mid-sized American cities facing increased violence on their streets, violence we allege the Chi-Coms are financing through their lackeys in the Democratic Party, what we now call the Democratic-Socialist Party of America, the DSPA.  Elsewhere, “Pro-China Joe” Biden pops out of his hidey hole and denounces the violence afflicting the United States.  Uh, okay Joe, okay.  Finally, a shooting outside a pancake house in Chicago today claims one life and wounds several others.  It was a drive-by shooting in which an SUV pulled by the foodservice establishment and opened fire.  Democratic Catchphrase of the Day: “Trump is dividing the nation!”  Reprobate Rep.

  67. 2021 Monday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– The White House reports that within the past 24 hours, the U.S. military has been able to evacuate 1.2 thousand people.  Rep. Nancy Mace, R-SC 1st CD told Newsmax that ‘it’s likely the Pentagon had more than a head’s up on last Thursday’s ISIS-K suicide bombing at the Kabul airport.’  Speaking of this disaster, increasing numbers of Democrats are beginning to turn their backs on the usurper in the White House over his sheer stupidity in dealing with Afghanistan.  Rasmussen reports that 52-percent of the American people rate Joe Biden’s Afghan performance as POOR.   Rep. Jake Ellzey, R-TX 6th CD, says the ‘evacuation mission must be extended.’  Rep. Greg Murphy, R-NC 3rd CD, told Newsmax today that the ’U.S. is cowering to the Taliban following the terror group’s demands that the United States adheres to its deadline for their withdrawal.’  Prior to the commander in charge- General Austin S. Miller- proclaiming the ‘war is over’ in Afghanistan, Senator Joni Ernst, R-IA, said, ‘it’s unclear if we will get all Americans out of the POS country.’  According to the general, we won’t.  The Pentagon says that the last U.S. military aircraft have left Afghanistan and that the war is now ‘over.’
  68. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Greetings, folks.  As much as it upsets our stomach to continually point out the deficiencies of the loser some claim is the ‘vice president,’ we are compelled to do it anyway.  Today is Day No. 159 since Joe Biden made “Kooky Kamala” Harris the so-called ‘border czar’ and Day No. 66 since her sole visit to the U.S.-Mexico border.  What can we say other than the fact that this woman is a complete loser?  It is what it is.  Next, here are the numbers for the illegal alien invasion along the southern border and across the United States as presented by One America News.  First, here is the cost of caring for these frigging illegal alien losers for just this day: $519,850,464.  Second, here is the cost of caring for these maggots for this year: $264,629,485,568.  Third, here is the number of illegals who have swarmed into our country just this frigging year: 2,712,240.  Fourth and final, here are the numbers- conservative ones, we assure you, of the number of illegals roaming across the United States as we speak: 36,712,240.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  69. 2021 Monday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Iran and Syria are proposing a mutually beneficial economic plan for the betterment of both nations seeing as the U.S. has imposed harsh sanctions on not only national leaders but the countries.   Eventually, we believe that Iran will spread across Iraq and into Syria to the Mediterranean where they most likely will establish a naval base.  Meanwhile, another member of the Axis of Evil- North Korea- is set to begin enriching plutonium yet again, giving the big, gnarly middle finger to the Biden regime.  Elsewhere, the World Health Organization has opened an air bridge into Kabul, Afghanistan, to get medical supplies into the hellhole nation.  Finally, “Kooky Kamala” Harris visiting Vietnam laid flowers at the monument commemorating the shootdown of then-U.S. Navy flier, John McCain.  WTF is wrong with this stupid woman?
  70. 2021 Monday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– As COVID-19 cases continue to surge thanks to the importation of millions of UNSCREENED illegal aliens and refugees, McDonalds’ restaurants and other similar fast-food outlets are closing down indoor dining.  Meanwhile, Texas and Florida are stressing antibody treatments over forcing everyone to get the increasingly ineffective vaccines.
  71. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– North Las Vegas Mayor John Lee, Democrat, is so upset with the harsh lockdowns destroying economic activity across the Silver State that he is switching to becoming a Republican.  That is correct, Mayor Lee blasted Governor Steve Sisolak, DS, and is now a member of the GOP.   In other harsh COVID-19 lockdown and restriction news, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says that ‘Trump hatred’ is preventing potential COVID-19 drug research and development.’  Amen, Senator, amen.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Department of Education is pursuing five states that have mask bans in place in their schools.
  72. 2021 Monday K: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $46.76 (2) AstraZeneca $58.61 (3) Johnson & Johnson $173.66 (4) BioNTech $345.00 (5) Moderna $370.69.  The reason we share these figures is so that the public understands the reason for the push behind the vaccine craze.  Everyone in government is feeding from the hog trough, getting big, fat, rich, and horribly wealthy while everyone else starves in the street.  NOT flipping good for the American people.
  73. 2021 Monday L: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $84.80 (2) General Dynamics: $199.19 (3) Boeing: $217.63 (4) Lockheed Martin: $362.05 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $367.62.  Folks, do you believe that the U.S. military is upset over leaving $85 billion of military equipment in Afghanistan?  Well, they most assuredly are NOT.  The reason for this is because the military industries will have to make more weapons of war for the military which means profits for these companies will continue to increase which means everyone in the Deep State and elected to government will be profiting from their stock dividends.  The classic money-go-round and the reason WHY the left hates President Donald J. Trump- he got in the way of their money.  God bless him.
  74. 2021 Monday M: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump says that the U.S. ‘must either evacuated U.S. military abandoned in Afghanistan or bomb it.’ 
  75. 2021 Monday N: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden’s approval ratings have dropped to 48-percent (which in the era of FAKE NEWS means they most likely are down around 29-percent.  Serves the usurper right).  Meanwhile, a mumbling, stumbling Joe Biden continues taking heat after the regime claimed it was taking intel from the Taliban to go after the plotters of last Thursday’s attack at HKIA in Kabul.  The world learned that the intel provided by the Taliban to the Bidenistas killed an Afghan interpreter and nine members of his family, including seven children.  Good Lord, Joe, you are a pathetic loser. 
  76. 2021 Monday O: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– After Joe Biden and wife Jill met the returning slain U.S. military heroes from last Thursday’s terrorist attack at HKIA, Joe is taking incoming flak over him pushing up his cuff to look at his watch as the bodies were being brought in.  WTF is wrong with you, Joe, you can watch reruns of “Matlock” and “Colombo” anytime on TV.  Honor America’s slain military men and women you corrupt POS.  Newsmax reports that the dimwitted Joe Biden’s mindless comments are endangering Americans such as his recent bull crap, “What interest do we have in Afghanistan at this point with al-Qaida gone?  We went to Afghanistan with the express purpose of getting rid of al-Qaida in Afghanistan as well as Osama bin Laden.”  Joe, you are a moron, zip your lips.
  77. 2021 Monday P: Joe Biden Regime News I– FEMA Director Deanne Criswell says that ‘after Hurricane Ida, the biggest concern for the federal government is COVID-19-slammed hospitals.’  (Note- the other day when Joe Biden was at a press conference with Director Criswell, the old fool couldn’t even say her name properly.  This man is an embarrassment for the country as his Number Two, “Kooky Kamala” Harris.  (Note- we would be better off with Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke in the U.S. Naval Observatory, and that guy is a drooling moron).
  78. 2021 Monday Q: Political News I– Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell blasted Joe Biden’s hurried exit from Kabul by saying, ‘it’s worse than Saigon’ back in 1975.   Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, says that ‘words cannot describe the Afghan travesty.’   Worse, we learn today that U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken was vacationing in the Hamptons when the debacle in Afghanistan began.  What a loser.  We learned today that various U.S. businesses around the nation are lobbying to bring about the implosion of the Biden regime’s ‘infrastructure bill.’  Good.  The bill needs to go into the circular filing cabinet.
  79. 2021 Monday R: U.S. House of Representatives News I– One-hundred-and-three House Republicans are going to oppose any attempt by the Democrats to raise the debt ceiling yet again so the Dems can borrow billions and billions from communist China and other nations so they can fund ‘Joe Biden’s’ economic ‘plans.’  We wish you luck.
  80. 2021 Monday S: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– Abortion providers are down on their knees sniveling to the United States Supreme Court to STOP the new Texas fetal heartbeat law.
  81. 2021 Monday T: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Democrats are celebrating as word came of conservative radio talk show host Marc Bernier who has a radio program in Daytona Beach, Florida.  Mr. Bernier was opposed to forced vaccinations so the tragic fact that COVID-19 took him out has caused legions of left-wing losers to dance around the maypole in celebration.  F**k them.  (Note- whatever happened to ‘my body, my choice’?)  Meanwhile, Joseph P. Kennedy II- oldest son of slain Senator Robert F. Kennedy- is opposed to the release of his convicted assassin, Sirhan B. Sirhan, age 77.
  82. 2021 Monday: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Colonial Williamsburg to highlight gay and tranny reenactments.  Elsewhere, the former 20-year-old mistress of then-President John F. Kennedy, Democrat, is going to share her story with the press.  In other WOKE news, a new video came to light in which a skanky-looking California teacher was bragging how without an American flag in her classroom, she cajoled a student into pledging allegiance to the LGBTQIA+ Homo flag.  That teacher needs to be shot.  We must stop this WOKE devastation of the country.  If or when the Chi-Coms take the country over, all this WOKE crap will go out the window and these WOKIES will either get with the program or will join us in the labor/reeducation camps.
  83. 2021 Monday V: California Lottery Results-Powerball Monday Night Draw– here are the results for the Powerball Draw #878 with a jackpot of $332 million up for grabs: 03, 15, 45, 51, 61, and Power 08.  Out of 58,654 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of 15,080 apiece.
  84. 2022 Tuesday: Unlike my colleagues, I do my best to avoid crossing the line into spitefulness because calling others foul names accomplishes nothing.  Still, there are things I find problematic with my party such as the Mar-a-Lago raid.  That is causing more people to cross over to the GOP which is going to have disastrous consequences for Dems come November.  We shall monitor the situation.  Chef Itzi Nakamura.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0937 a 20” x 24” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Cove at Sundown.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclees, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next release by the Beach Boys featured another archival release, a LIVE one from several top-quality shows from 1967: “Live Sunshine 1967” (12-08-2017).  For decades, if we wanted live Beach Boys shows from the group’s heyday- 1966 through 1979- we had to find vendors of bootlegs which was easy during the days of colored vinyl.  However, as time progressed, it became more difficult which is why we are so glad we are still alive half-a-century later.  We have two shows from Hawaii plus rehearsals, another from Washington, D.C., Pittsburgh, White Plains, N.Y., and from other locales, all of which are a joy to behold.  We hope you find the necessary Joe Biden worthless greenbacks to pick up this amazing collection of concerts.  You will be extremely glad you did, that, we guarantee.

[i] At some point, we will do the music of the Mamas and the Papas the same time we do the music of Sonny & Cher.  We hope you will continue awaiting that glorious day.

[ii] We celebrated the music of the amazing Little Feat beginning on Tuesday, 11-June-2013 through Monday, 15-July-2013.  One of the great unsung bands of all time, we hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your music collection.

[iii] We began promoting the music of Jethro Tull, Blodwyn Pig, Mick Abrahams, Ian Anderson, Martin Barre, Wild Turkey, and Paris on Monday, May 24, 2021, at the AICPENDBLOG.COM.  We are still in the process of presenting the music so please, join us at WordPress.  We hope you will.

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

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

[vi] 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.

241. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, AUGUST 29, 2022

2022 Monday: Friends, I don’t drink as much Kool-Aid as some of my colleagues do so we will do our best to keep things moving ahead without so much bombast. You know what I am saying, we no talk stink about Democrats being evil and President Biden being a senile bonehead. That is not my style nor will it be. Besides, the prospect of Donald Trump going to prison is giving me chicken skin up and down my arms.

  69. 2020 Saturday A: Early this morning, police in Portland, Oregon, declared yet another riot after a so-called ‘peaceful protest’ once again erupted into a violent mob shortly after midnight.  These peaceful ‘beatnik types’ tried to trap law enforcement officers inside the police union building and then did everything they could to set it ablaze and murder the people inside.  Folks, there is an answer to this: anyone tossing a Molotov cocktail, you shoot them dead.  This stops this sort of illegal activity in its tracks and puts everyone else on notice as to what you will and what you WON’T accept.  This used to be the way things were done.  Elsewhere, another military mishap occurs as a U.S. Army helicopter crashes into San Clemente Island 70 miles off of Coronado, California, killing two special forces soldiers and wounding several others.  Finally, U.S. Director of National Intelligence ignites a firestorm among House Democrats when he says he ‘will no longer testify in person before the House about Election security.’  He will, however, provide written answers.  Of course, the Dems are angry, they can no longer showboat and act like a bunch of rapscallions as they do any time a member of the Trump administration testifies before them.
  70. 2020 Saturday B: Sadly today, we do not have the stock market or the current COVID-19 statistics due to an attempted Chi-Com attack into our systems that shut us down for nearly three days.  Sorry.

  77. 2021 Sunday F: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Growing unrest over harsh COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions in France and Germany has led to growing protests across the two countries.  Meanwhile, Iranian-backed Houthi rebels score a big victory when a missile slams into a Saudi-Yemeni military base in Yemen sending 30 or more unprepared people to meet with Allah sooner than anticipated.  Others were left wounded in varying degrees.  (Note- time to begin dropping neutron bombs on these Houthi vermin and their Iranian overlords).

  80. 2022 Monday: Friends, I don’t drink as much Kool-Aid as some of my colleagues do so we will do our best to keep things moving ahead without so much bombast.   You know what I am saying, we no talk stink about Democrats being evil and President Biden being a senile bonehead.  That is not my style nor will it be.  Besides, the prospect of Donald Trump going to prison is giving me chicken skin up and down my arms.  We shall keep abreast of current events to the best of our abilities, but the majority of this year’s news will appear NEXT year.  We want to maintain a good relationship with governmental entities snooping on us.  Chef Itzi Nakamura.

[iii] 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.

[iv] See footnote ii.

[v] 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.

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

[xi] We began promoting the music of the Steve Miller Band beginning on Wednesday, 27-July-2011 through Wednesday, 24-August-2011 and then did a second stint on Sunday, 20-April-2014.  We hope you will check the music of this amazing San Francisco, California, acid-rock blues band.  The album, “Abracadabra,” which features the cut appeared on Tuesday, 09-August-2011.

118. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, APRIL 28, 2022

2003 Wednesday: U.S. forces open fire on a group of Iraqi protesters in Fallujah, Iraq, after they began throwing things and making threats. This would be the focal point for the buildup to what would become known as the Battle of Fallujah in 2004, a make-or-break effort in the unnecessary invasion launched by the George W. Bush administration. (Note- we think this is a prime example of the Deep State influencing a president into a war and then when it goes wrong, they abandon them to their fate).

  85. 2021 Wednesday O: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto And Powerball Draws–  Here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3555 with a $41 million pot on the line tonight: 14, 18, 19, 33, 37, and Mega 19.  Out of 116,245 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person with FIVE numbers BUT NO MEGA for a prize of $41,234.  The winning ticket was sold at a Chevron in Coarsegold, CA 93614.   Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #841 with a $116 million pot on the line: 16, 18, 35, 39, 53, and Powerball 21.   Out of 55,428 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Powerball for a prize of $859,829.  The winning ticket was sold at Stater Brothers 188 in Grand Terrace, CA 92313.
  86. 2021 Wednesday P: The Wrap-Up– Amazing to see Joe Biden’s ‘address’ in which, he praised the police, noting most of them are okay.  Here is how socialism works- you grind law enforcement and the military in the dirt, kick them in the teeth, beat them up, purge them, and then when they can take no more, you make a deal: IF you don’t want things to return to the way they were- you being public enemies and all- you will now serve as storm-troopers and go after our enemies.  YOU can do whatever you want to them and without any oversight or parameters.  This is evil- glad I am now in Israel- Mo.  We love and cherish our freedoms… Meanwhile, the three people involved in the death of Ahmaud Arbery have been indicted on hate crimes charges.   A federal grand jury indicted Travis McMichael, Gregory McMichael, and William “Roddie” Bryan today which is good.  These three crackers have much for which to answer.
  87. 2022 Thursday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole– 512,067,467 confirmed cases, +785,425, 6,255,853 confirmed deaths, +2,360 and 465,824,561 confirmed recoveries, +566,075. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 82,950,138 confirmed cases, UP 61,891 from yesterday’s reporting, 1,020,124 confirmed deaths, UP 350,[xxiii] and 80,618,357 confirmed recoveries, UP by 32,438.    We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[xxiv]
  88. 2022 Thursday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 570,831 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 206,076 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 463 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.              
  89. 2022 Thursday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 9,216,406 confirmed cases, 90,343 confirmed deaths, and 8,963,856 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,964,981 confirmed cases, 73,928 confirmed deaths, and 5,816,157 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 248,405 confirmed cases, 1,418 confirmed deaths, and 239,022 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,493,194 confirmed cases, 12,686 confirmed deaths, and 1,445,808 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Navajo Nation: they have 53,381 confirmed cases, 1,758 confirmed deaths, and 51,519 confirmed recoveries.[xxv]   
  90. 2022 Thursday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 4,071,491 confirmed cases, 10,695 confirmed deaths, and 4,033,472 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Nauru, 226th place on the list: 4 cases of the virus, 1 confirmed death and 3 confirmed recoveries.[xxvi]                         
  91. 2022 Thursday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,916.39, UP 614.46 points (+1.85%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,871.53 UP 382.60 points (+3.06%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,287.50, UP 103.54 points (+2.47%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $105.11 per barrel, +3.09 (+3.03%).  The price of GOLD is $1,894.80 per troy oz., +6.10 (+0.32%) while the price of SILVER is $23.17 per troy ounce, -0.30 (-1.26%).  The price of PLATINUM is $909.90 per troy oz, -0.50 (-0.05%) while the price of COPPER is $4.44 per pound, -0.04 (-0.86%).[xxvii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,249.53 per troy oz., +46.71 (+2.12%). The price of RHODIUM is $18,200.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,095,000.00 per CNY/T, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,039.00 per USD/T, -54.50 (-1.76%). The price of ZINC is $4,136.00 per USD/T., -83.50 (-1.98%).   The price of COCOA is $2,575.00 per USD/T, +7.00 (+0.27%).  The price of COFFEE is $218.40 per USD/T, +2.45 (+1.13%).  The price of CORN is $817.00 per USD/T, +1.50 (+0.18%).  The price of LUMBER is $1,043.80 USD 1,000 board feet -8.60 (-0.82%).[xxviii]   Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000025.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.62 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.95 euros, in Mexican pesos equals 20.45, and in Russian rubles, one dollar equals 70.25 of theirs.    In Rwandan Franc, one greenback equals 1,010.05 and in St. Helena Pound, a buck equals 0.80 and in El Salvadoran Colón, one dollar equals 8.75 of theirs.[xxix]       
  92. 2022 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.685 per gallon, $4.176 in Florida, $5.256 in Hawaii, and $4.691 in Washington state.[xxx]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Montana- $4.097.  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 30th LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Chad: $3.206 per U.S. Gallon.[xxxi] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,414,818,869,159 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxxii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Luxembourg the SIXTH largest holder of U.S. debt is Brazil.  This nation holds $258,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  93. 2022 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– Sensing that Joe Biden is on the verge of mental collapse, Russia once again warned the United States of potential retaliation over America’s asinine sanctions.   Meanwhile, Senator Steve Daines, R-MT, says he ‘witnessed ample signs of Russian war crimes in Ukraine’ during a recent visit to that war-torn country.  Next, reports continue to arise of the Russian navy employing dolphins to guard their Black Sea base at Sebastopol.  This has been tried before but has never proven successful.  Still, with the Russkies, one never knows.
  94. 2022 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II– The Russians have raised rocket and missile attacks on Ukraine once again.  Several blasts rocked Ukraine’s capital city, Kyiv, today.   The British minister of defense- Ben Wallace- says that ‘Russia could become a cancerous growth in Ukraine.’  Meanwhile, Dick Morris told Grant Stinchfield on Newsmax this evening that if Russia were to use tactical nukes in Ukraine, ‘all bets would be off, and the U.S. must put troops on the ground in direct conflict with the Russkies.’  This is becoming more ludicrous by the day.  We cannot fight a land war with Russia in eastern Europe, it’s impossible to do and will lead to the Chi-Coms becoming the world’s master.  Not good.
  95. 2022 Thursday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Vice President Kamala Harris has been the nation’s ‘border czar’ for the past 391 days and even worse, she has not arrived to do her job in 305 days.  Our estimates of the rising costs associated with rising numbers of illegal aliens continues breaking records every day.  The cost of caring for the illegal aliens the past 118 days is $752,442,887.  Next, the cost of caring for the detritus of the world since the Biden-Harris regime grabbed power on January 20, 2021, is $42,498,248,630.  The number of illegal aliens encountered at the border since January 01, 2022, is approximately 1,203,637.  Finally, the conservative low estimate of illegal aliens in the country is 46,635,294.  We believe the numbers to be closer to 95-to-130 million which is unsustainable for any country and must be fixed now.  Deport ALL of them.  Now.  (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).
  96. 2022 Thursday I: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says the southern border is ‘broken because of Joe Biden’s attitude.’  George P. Bush, R-TX, says that the southern border is ‘out of control.’  Next, while testifying before the Congress, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas says that the only solution for solving the border crisis is to give every illegal alien who has swarmed across it amnesty.  Folks, not only this insane, it’s also the kill stroke for the United States.  It’s over, it’s done, it’s finished.  In other border-related news, Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, is seeking donations with which to bus illegal aliens into Washington, D.C.  While we think this is great, how about finding a way to push them back across the border into Mexico?   Simultaneously, Attorney General Ken Paxton, R-TX, is suing the Biden regime over its upcoming plan to lessen border security next month with the overturning of Title 42.  DHS Secretary Mayorkas says he believes there will be 18,000 or more encounters of illegal aliens per day once the pro-American Title 42 ends.  We must fight back against this evil.
  97. 2022 Thursday J: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer: $50.55 (2) AstraZeneca: $67.22 (3) Novavax: $44.27 (4) Merck & Company: $88.61 (5) Johnson & Johnson: $183.59  (6) BioNTech: $143.40 (7) Moderna: $142.52.
  98. 2022 Thursday K: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $98.09 (2) Boeing: $154.19 (3) General Dynamics: $242.20 (4) Lockheed Martin: $441.69 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $445.17.
  99. 2022 Thursday L: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Ansell Ltd.: $26.22 (2) DuPont: $67.58 (3) 3M: $147.21 (4) Honeywell: $189.92  (5) Teijen: $1,388.00.
  100. 2022 Thursday M: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News– (1) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $28.06 (2) Beyond Meat: $39.82  (3) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $69.55.
  101. 2022 Thursday N: Big Box Store Stock Prices (Follow the Money 5) News– (1) Wal-Mart: $156.21 (2) Lowe’s: $205.13 (3) Home Depot: $312.04 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $562.00 (5) Amazon: $2,891.93.
  102. 2022 Thursday O: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden endorsed a new bill that will funnel assets seized from Russian oligarchs to Ukraine.  Joe also asked Congress for an additional $33 billion in aid for Ukraine which means the Biden regime will most likely skim off 12-20-percent for the Biden Family’s coffers.
  103. 2022 Thursday P: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– A new Rasmussen poll pulls NO punches and says that a large majority of Americans blame Joe Biden for skyrocketing gas prices.   In other disastrous news for the Biden regime, the Chi-Coms and Iran are going to increase their mutual defense pact.  This is a direct slap in the face of slobbering Joe Biden.  In yet another problem for the feeble U.S. ‘president’- one who could not speak today at a ‘press conference’ of sorts without going totally BLANK in his thoughts, words, and speech- parental rights groups are pushing back with growing force over Joe’s suggestion that children do not belong to their parents but to the regime.  George Orwell could not have foretold the topics of his classic novel, “1984,” than what we are seeing today.
  104. 2022 Thursday Q: Joe Biden Regime News I– President Ron Klain, uh, excuse me, President Joe Biden, continues dangling the bait that the Biden regime could cancel all CURRENT student debt but not over $50,000.  Alas, it must be an election year for this carrot of the carrot of ‘reparations for slavery’ to be dangling in front of the young, dumb, and full of c*m voters.  Should Joe Biden cancel student loan debt, he will alienate all those who have struggled to pay their loans off who by far outnumber those who have not.
  105. 2022 Thursday R: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– The House select committee investigating (yeah, right) the FALSE FLAG EVENTS of January 06, 2021, announce their plan to hold at least eight public hearings, beginning in June, in the hope of somehow influencing the voters to vote ‘D’ on their ballots in November.  We suspect their ratings will be at the bottom of the crapper.  We also suspect the American people will become even more infuriated with the regime and its allies than they are now and if- we repeat- IF- the elections are honest, the Dems are going to go the way of the dinosaur.
  106. 2022 Thursday S: Big Tech News– CNN + threw in the towel today, two full days ahead of the scheduled shutdown on April 30, 2022.

[v] We look forward to promoting the music of INXS sometime within the next 15 years or so.  We hope you will be there when we do.  We thank you.

[xii] The Nazis labeled these people ‘Useless Eaters,” people who TOOK FROM society but NOT RETURNED to society.  Thus, they were economic drains on the state and had to be eliminated which is what Governor Cuomo did by sending sick patients back into places where a vulnerable population depended upon competent care.  The Nazis used carbon monoxide vans, but Cuomo sent the sick into places where they would do the most damage.  HE MUST go to prison.

[xxi] The rebuttal to tonight’s ‘address to a joint session of Congress’ will be by Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, and he will present “My Family’s American Dream” story as an alternative to tonight’s mumbling, stumbling, rumbling, bumbling ‘speech’ by “Chi-Com Joe” Biden.  What a contrast: a senile old fool and a GOP rock star.
