213. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, AUGUST 01, 2022

2022 Monday: Friends, let me float a theory by you: could the war in Ukraine be a false flag operation of sorts? Joe Biden’s regime is on its last legs and the goons still have two years to go. Still, the world is accepting skyrocketing gas prices, energy shortages, food shortages, Russian and communist Chinese hegemony, and a concerted effort to topple prosperous Western democracies all in the name of saving a despotic regime in Eastern Europe.

  67. 2015 Saturday: After Puerto Rican Governor Alejandro Garcia Padilla warned creditors the previous June that if its debt did not undergo restructuring to keep the commonwealth afloat, Puerto Rico fails to make a $58 billion payment on bonds issued by the Public Finance Corporation.  In other news, Palestinian riffraff have been causing trouble for the Israelis who after the scumbags murder an innocent wee babe in his crib by setting him on fire leads Israeli Defense Forces to take the fight to the human garbage.  At least two Palestinian 17-year-olds are killed in the resulting fray.

  69. 2017 Tuesday: The U.S. Senate confirms the Honorable Christopher A. Wray the next head of the FBI, thus ending the era of the corrupt James Comey.  Elsewhere, in Herat, Afghanistan, the so-called ‘religion of peace’- Islam- strikes again when a bomb blast at the Jawadia Shia Mosque kills at least 30 and injures and maims countless others.  Got to love the religion!  Next, famed keyboardist with the rock band, Steppenwolf- Goldy McJohn- died in Seattle, Washington, on this date from a heart attack; he was 72 years old.

Trump announces via a tweet that starting September 1, 2019, the U.S. is going to slap a 10-percent tariff on $300 billion of Chi-Com exports.  Good.  The SOBs have been raping the United States for a long, long time.  Time to make those bloodsuckers pay.
  72. 2020 Saturday: Florida is bracing today for incoming Hurricane Isaias.  Meanwhile, Democrats and Republicans are working hard to craft a new Chinese Virus relief package.  The Democrats want to continue giving unemployed Americans $600 atop their state unemployment checks while the GOP wants to slash the additional funding to $200 atop the weekly state unemployment checks.  The GOP wants workers to return to work while the Democrats seek to keep them at home, dependent upon federal government until well after the November elections.  Democrats seek to topple the U.S. economy as only then can uber-leftists force Marxism down the throats of the American people.  Finally, BOTH Democrats and Republicans slam President Donald J. Trump for seeking to remove U.S. troops from Germany and redeploy them farther east to countries such as Poland, Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia, as well as bring some of them home.  Very few NATO member countries fail to pay their annual 2-percent dues.   As for the most prosperous nation in Western Europe and a linchpin of the alliance: Germany wants U.S. troops to protect them from Russia, yet Angela Merkel makes energy deals with Vladimir Putin for natural gas pipelines coming directly into her country.  This is bulls**t! 
  73. 2020 Saturday A: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- Here are today’s COVID-19 Wuhan Virus, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, aka the Chinese Flu, the Kung Flu, you know, the Chinese “gift” that won’t stop giving, statistics for today: 17,594,541 confirmed cases, UP 273,147, 679,439 confirmed deaths, UP 5,617, and 10,333,166 confirmed recoveries, UP 178,140.  In the United States, here are today’s numbers: 4,686,214 confirmed cases, UP 61,034 new cases, 156,370 confirmed deaths, UP 1,124, and 2,293,228 confirmed recoveries, UP 30,254.

Gavin Newsom being little more than a festering POS, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  In Hawaii, here are the stats: 2,197 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,243 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the too-far-left-to-save-state-of-Washington, here are the stats: 55,803 confirmed cases, 1,564 confirmed deaths, and like California’s worthless governor, Gov. Jay Inslee won’t list the number of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at the numbers of another state we haven’t looked at lately, Pennsylvania, the “Keystone State,” one of the worst states for out-of-control liberal politics.  The number of cases in the state is 112,936 while the number of deaths is 13,588.  No mention of the number of confirmed recoveries.  Such a shame but the one thing we do know is that Governor Tom Wolf is little more than a hardcore political hack.

Currently, Joe is shy 93,140 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[viii]

[ix]    Let’s look at one other location- Louisiana: $2.816.  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- Jamaica: $4.711 per U.S. Gallon.[x]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,591,181,135,271 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xi]  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 United Arab Emirates, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Mexico with $49 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.
  81. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day No. 131 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the horrendous humanitarian disaster along the southern border and to have done absolutely NOTHING about it.  It’s also her 37th day since her one and only visit to the southern border and to have done absolutely NOTHING about it.   When we say ‘nothing,’ we mean, “NOTHING.”  It is time she laid down her duties- not that she ever picked them up- and returned home to spend more time with her family.  Adios.  Customs and Border Protection officials report that in the month of June, the authorities caught 190,000 illegals which means many, many more were able to have beaten the dragnet.   Speaking of CBP, former acting commissioner of the organization- Mark Morgan- calls out the hypocrisy of both Joe Biden and the Democrats over their stoppage of the border wall construction- ‘it would be cheaper to complete the wall rather than care for all of these frigging illegal aliens.’
  82. 2021 Sunday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Speaking of the horrendous ongoing mess along the southern border, here are the numbers reported by One America News for this disgusting disaster we have no choice but to watch.  It affects all of us, it harms all of us, and it will eat away at the guts of the country until everything implodes.  First, here is the COST THIS DAY of caring for all the frigging illegal aliens: $583,016,384.   Second, here is the COST THIS YEAR: $232,911,831,040.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal aliens estimated to have crossed the border this year: 2,387,159.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate of illegals believed to be within the United States: 36,387,160.  (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).  Note- if you have read our blog site for any length of time, then you know we estimated as far back as 2009 when we first began being the voice of the culinary worker and professional chef that back then, we believed the number to be between 35-to-50 million whereas now, we suspect the honest-to-God number is closer to 75-100 million which means we have the seeds of our own demise residing within our country.  DEPORT THEM NOW no matter the difficulty or the cost.
  83. 2021 Sunday H: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– While sending Cubans back to their communist hellhole, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security says that at least 100,000 Haitians will be provided work permits so they can work (and vote) in the U.S. without fear.  Elsewhere, seizures of fentanyl along the southern border are up by as much as 4,000-percent.  CBP officials report the drug comes from labs in Mexico supplied by the Chi-Coms and that it is used in cocaine, heroin, and in pill presses to create fake oxycontin and other pharmaceutical prescribed drugs being used by Americans.  Deaths are going way up once again now that President Donald J. Trump is not in the White House.
  84. 2021 Sunday I: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Former Iranian thug President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says that while HE was president, the government lied for EIGHT years about its countless human rights abuses and violations.  Mahmoud, everyone knows that.  Iranian leaders are ALL liars.  Elsewhere, the government of Myanmar has extended its ‘state of emergency’ with the leader of the coup proclaimed the prime minister.  Meanwhile, the war in Afghanistan continues to rage what with the cities of Herat, Lashkar Gah, and Kandahar being attacked and overwhelmed in some places.  In the western portion of the country, the Taliban has attacked a United Nations compound.
  85. 2021 Sunday J:  COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– As drooling Joe Biden continues trying to discern ways by which he can coerce the American people into taking the Kung Flu vaccines, Governor Kim Reynolds, R-IA, says ‘nope’ to offering $100 incentives to entice her citizens into getting the shots.  (Note- we suspect they could jack it up to $1,000 per jab and people would still say, “HELL, NO, we are not getting this duck dreck”).  Meanwhile, CNN ‘health expert’ John Berman puts the blame for the ongoing ‘pandemic’ onto the shoulders of the unvaccinated while totally ignoring the wide-open borders and the hundreds of thousands of infected illegals pouring across into the United States.  Good try, Mr. Berman, but it’s all bullshit.  This dimwit also says that Joe Biden declared victory ‘way too early.’ 
  86. 2021 Sunday K: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Two countries- Thailand and Indonesia- are pushing away from using Chi-Com vaccines, finding fault with how they are manufactured and the myriad side effects they cause the recipients.  (Note- NO one should use any vaccine from either the Chi-Coms or the Russians.  Both are f**ked up countries).   Elsewhere, a new poll says that only 45-percent of the American people are concerned about getting the Chi-Vi while 13-percent- hardcore liberals- wet their beds at night in terror of contracting it.   What’s more, Xi Jinping Bat Flu deaths and hospitalizations are at record lows.  Yes, the Delta variant of the Chi-Com flu is much more contagious- like the common cold- but much less lethal.  Also let’s not forget that about one week ago today, the Dems were beginning to drive up the fears of the Lambda variant but then abruptly yanked that one back for use at a later date.  Delta comes from India while Lambda comes from Peru. 
  87. 2021 Sunday L: Health and Medical Alerts– Fox News host Judge Janine Pirro says that the government is setting up for future COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions- especially going into 2022 so the Dems and their RINO sycophants can replicate the elections theft they perfected in conjunction with the Chi-Coms in 2020.  Judge Pirro points out that the LEFT is the science deniers.  She also asked what the ‘endgame’ in this horrible scheme is? In other Chi-Vi news, the Centers for Disease Control is paying the National Football League’s Alumni Association $3.5 million to get retired players to coerce current players into taking the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines even though they have no desire to do it.  Next, in two San Francisco, California, hospitals, 233 breakthrough cases among fully vaccinated staff have occurred with at least TWO of them hospitalized.  Finally, South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster, R, is blasting health officials for exaggerating COVID-19’s danger via their frightening hyperbole.
  88. 2021 Sunday M: Political News I– The ‘mask mandate’ imposed by nonagenarian U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi is not only unpopular with most Republicans, but  also becoming increasingly unpopular with many Democrats as well- so says the polls.  Speaking of mask mandates, Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel “Bow-Wow” Bowser like many other Democrats- including “Mumbles” Pelosi and her corpulent sidekick, Rep. Jerrold “Tub-of-Goo” Nadler, DS-NY 10th CD, all have been captured wandering around sans masks.  Next, Democrats are fretting over the fact that millions of Americans could soon be homeless once the moratorium on evictions vanishes but here’s the deal: most of the $45 billion earmarked for helping renters and mortgage holders keep current remains unused which means it’s resting peacefully in the pockets of Democrat and RINO politicians.   
  89. 2021 Sunday N: Political News II– We have been long hoping for this but it sounds like former Alaska GOP Governor Sarah Palin could return to politics and take a go at highly unpopular current Senator Lisa Murkowski in 2022.  We hope to God she runs and beats this Republican-in-name-only.  She would be an amazing addition to the U.S. Senate.  Meanwhile, U.S. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd CD, says that ‘IF he gets the gavel in November 2022, he will launch investigations into drooling Joe Biden and extremely corrupt House Speaker “Mumbles” Pelosi.   Speaking of moronic Democrats, the police chief of Charleston, South Carolina, Luther Reynolds, says that the Democrats’ Defund the Police scheme is blowing up in their faces.
  90. 2021 Sunday O: Business News– Amazon has been slammed with a $886 million fine over a recent data law breach.  Meanwhile, British-based bank Monzo Bank Ltd finds itself embroiled in a money-laundering mess.
  91. 2022 Monday: Friends, let me float a theory by you: could the war in Ukraine be a false flag operation of sorts?  Joe Biden’s regime is on its last legs and the goons still have two years to go.  Still, the world is accepting skyrocketing gas prices, energy shortages, food shortages, Russian and communist Chinese hegemony, and a concerted effort to topple prosperous Western democracies all in the name of saving a despotic regime in Eastern Europe.  I suspect that once liberal lunatics such as Joe f**king Biden seize power as his good buddy, Justin Trudeau has already done and others follow, the New World Order will be imposed on the global population with the Chi-Coms at the top.  This is evil, coordinated, and propaganda/fake news supported, and I fear if they find a way to force everyone to remain at home another election cycle, it will become a fait accompli.  Although Ukraine is being destroyed, it will be rebuilt once the world is starved into submission, the people driven into poverty, and freeze in the winters and broil in the summers, it will be too late.  Tell me what you think- Chef Hector.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0909 a 20” x 24” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Verbenas and Saguaros.”  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 album by Beach Boys’ genius, Brian Wilson, is his first seasonal release: “What I Really Want for Christmas,” an album that came out on October 18, 2005.  The Beach Boys had a glorious Christmas album so it would make sense that Brian would do something similar and thus, here it is.  Besides doing some of his classic Beach Boys tunes such as “Little St. Nick” and “The Man with All the Toys,” he delivers some amazing covers of other, classic Yuletide tunes.  As always, he has a superb cast of supporting musicians with which to deliver a delightful holiday package.  We hope you will seek this one out and consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure around the holidays.  You will be extremely glad you did- we guarantee it.

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).

  62. 2012 Sunday: The government of Bashar al-Assad accuses UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon of ‘encouraging attacks on the government.’  Elsewhere, as Chi-Coms scour Beijing searching for blind dissident Chen Guangcheng who fled house arrest and into the streets, rumors are flying that he somehow made his way to the U.S. Embassy where he sought refuge.  Not good for U.S.-Chi-Com relations but it is what it is.

  76. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Joe Biden is sending $310 million to Guatemala to ‘help them’ stem the tide of illegal aliens flowing north through their country to the United States; we’ll see.  Speaking of the border, Customs and Border Patrol reports that last month, the feds took 170,000 illegal aliens into custody.   Elsewhere, the Biden regime-controlled U.S. Department of Justice has quietly repealed Trump era restrictions on the amount of federal aid going to ‘sanctuary cities’ and ‘sanctuary states.’   Meanwhile, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is blasting the Biden regime for NOT permitting him entry into the illegal alien holding pens in Donna, Texas.

Trump.’  Wow).[xxi]
  79. 2021 Wednesday I: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says the ‘Biden administration (i.e., the regime) displays schizophrenic undertones as it seeks de-escalation and confrontation at the same time.’  Absolutely true.  Next, as the truth continues to hit the presses over Climate Czar John F. “Lurch” Kerry’s numerous Logan Act violations in doing business with Iran while a private citizen, Congressman Michael McCaul, R-TX 10th congressional district, says that the allegations against ‘Lurch’ appear to be ‘somewhat treasonous.’   Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district says, ‘Kerry MUST resign.’  We concur.  Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken acknowledges that the U.S. pullout of Afghanistan could lead to a takeover of the country by the Taliban.  Finally, the U.S. sees major rollbacks on the sanctions placed atop Iran so the U.S. can return to the bogus Iran nuclear deal.

  81. 2021 Wednesday K: Political News I– Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says that while the Dems claim to SUPPORT Israel, they put forth a true anti-Semite POS such as Colin Kahl for the No. 3 position at the Pentagon: the undersecretary for policy.  (Note- Mr. Kahl says he will take a bipartisan approach to his job.  Boy, oh, boy, oh, boy- what a guy).  Next, President Donald J. Trump says of Congresswoman Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, that in so many words, she is a ‘LOSER.’   Moving on, Governor Doug Ducey, RINO-AZ, is trying to save his job by signing a tough abortion bill preventing abortion for genetic abnormalities.   Meanwhile, Congressmen Jeff Duncan, R-SC 3rd congressional district, and Doug Lamborn, R-CO 5th congressional district, are pushing back HARD on the Biden’s regime pushing of the bogus Critical Race Theory which is Critical Race Theory BS.  Good for you gentlemen!  Finally, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich says, ‘don’t denigrate Arizona’s 2020 Election audit.’  Amen.

Trump personal attorney Rudy Giuliani’s Manhattan apartment and removed all of his electronic devices in an early morning raid.  Mr. Giuliani offered to meet with the authorities and to hand over his devices but no, much like they did during the raid on Roger Stone’s home, they wanted to INTIMIDATE the man, trying to tie to him the crimes committed by Hunter Biden in the Ukraine.  Likewise, they also raided the home of Victoria Toensing and Joe DiGenova, two more big Trump supporters and legal eagles.   In other news, as California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom continues to whine and cry over the recall effort against him, one of the recall advisers says that ‘one-third of the signatories are Democrats, one-third are independents, and one-third are Republicans.’  Everyone wants Gavin Newsom OUT of office ASAP.[xxii]   Finally, Texas Department of Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller is working with Stephen Miller to defeat Joe Biden’s RACIST policies on equity rather than equality when it comes to providing aid to farmers.
  83. 2021 Wednesday M: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– An alternate juror on the Derek Chauvin murder trial says that ‘mob riots, protests, and the racial climate did NOT influence the jury’s decision.’  Sure.  Uh huh, of course not.  Next, following a cop shooting of a black suspect, a North Carolina judge denies a request for the video cam footage.   Next, a video shows that a California man died while the cops were holding him.  Here we go again.   Regarding firearms, a new poll shows that support for heavier gun laws is lacking support among the American people.

  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.

  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.

110. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, APRIL 20, 2022

When Republicans adapt to the rules of the ‘immigration game’ and begin registering illegal aliens as members of the GOP and word begins getting out that Republicans are playing by Democrat rules, a massive explosion of immediate deportation will commence immediately. Families will be separated, babies squalling, kids crying, mothers and fathers reaching out to one another, as the Dems stuff them onto every plane, train, truck, boat, hell, maybe even the Hyperloop if it’s in service by then and dumping them across the border in Mexico. The Democrats will become the BAD GUYS and the Republicans will be able to commiserate with the illegals. What a day that will be.

  79. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Three States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.974 per gallon, $2.818 in Florida, $3.749 in Hawaii, and $3.385 in Washington state.[xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- Louisiana: $2.611.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,193,749,804,750 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.  In other business news, Netflix fails to meet paid subscriber predictions which leads to a subsequent fall in its shares.
  80. 2021 Tuesday F: Crime And Punishment News– Stammering Joe Biden says he ‘hopes the jury in the trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin reaches the right verdict.’   Next, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob “The Jerk” Frey says, “No matter the verdict, George Floyd died at the hands of the police.”  (Note- the police are under HIS control).   We were wrong: Judge Peter A. Cahill reads the verdicts and Officer Derek Chauvin is convicted on ALL charges.  Officer Chauvin stands to face 40 years in the slammer although esteemed legal scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz believes that Maxine “Prune Face” Waters did enough to cause a mistrial (see below).  In an interesting aside, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, gave a schizophrenic statement thanking ‘George Floyd for dying, for calling out to his mother on camera’ so the Dems could utilize his untimely demise to benefit the ongoing attempt to transform our country into a socialist s**t-hole.
  81. 2021 Tuesday G: Social Media And Big Tech– The United Kingdom is considering launching their own digital currency, the so-called “Britcoin.”  Next, Facebook is developing new audio products, products with which we suspect they will listen in on their users’ conversations.  Elsewhere, Apple is going to permit Parler to be offered in its App Store.  Big flipping deal.  Speaking of Apple, they are going to reveal new products today in a virtual store.
  82. 2021 Tuesday H: RINO News– Not to be outdone by former House Speaker John “Too Much Flipping Tanning Booth” Boehner, former President George W. Bush has to chime in and add his two cents on the modern GOP.  He says the Republican Party is ‘isolationist, protectionist, and nativist,’ lamenting the fact that he failed to get ‘comprehensive immigration reform taken care of when HE was president.’  Sadly, Republicans knew what he and the RINO wing of the GOP meant when they talked about ‘comprehensive immigration reform’ meant amnesty for millions with a pathway to citizenship for all.’  We did not want that then, George, and we don’t want it now and if you want to make sure the Bush Family name remains toxic, continue talking, George.  Voting for another Bush would mean legalizing the illegal and another justice like the loser chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, John Roberts.   IF Jeb were to run again, yikes, NO MORE BUSHES!
  83. 2021 Tuesday I: Democratic-Socialist News– A new poll says that a large majority of the American people are concerned with the fact that Joe Biden appears to be a slobbering idiot much of the time.  We are concerned, too.   Speaking of Joe Biden, a Missouri college student is suing the Biden administration allowing trannys, i.e., chicks with dicks, into female-only college dorms.   Next, Michigan’s GOP announced they had discovered that Governor “Gravel Gertie” Gretchen Whitmer AND her staff took a secret vacation to Florida while demanding everyone else remain indoors wearing 4-5 masks.   Elsewhere, a new poll demonstrates that white liberals typically have far more mental problems than do everyone else.  We agree with that study.  Meanwhile, as criticism continues rolling in blasting Rep. Maxine “Prune Face” Waters, DS-CA 43rd congressional district, she dismisses it as ‘nothing’ even though she did the same thing that supposedly got President Donald J. Trump impeached a second time.   (Interesting note- “Prune Face” Waters sought a police escort when she landed in Minneapolis to the protest scene so she could stir the pot without having to fear for her safety.  Wow).  Speaking of “Prune Face,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is pushing a bill to censure the decrepit old rabble rouser and to remove her from her committee assignments.  Go for it.  (Note- the Democrats blocked this move).
  84. 2021 Tuesday J: Political News I– President Donald J. Trump says he is considering a run for the White House in 2024.  Elsewhere, Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, says that ‘Joe Biden turned his back on the people of his state by going after coalminers when 43-percent of the world’s energy is derived from coal.’  This is true, the United States is the ‘Saudi Arabia of coal’ what with the best here such as anthracite and bituminous coal beneath our feet.   Moving on, Senator Marsha Blackburn says that asking for Voter ID is NOT racist.  We agree.  One needs ID for everything else including welfare checks, liquor, and pot purchases, picking up tickets, buying cigarettes, boarding airplanes- unless one is an illegal alien- you name it, you must show ID so WTF?[xvi] 
  85. 2021 Tuesday K: Political News II– Officials in Indiana reveal that laws regarding firearms in their state would have done NOTHING to have stopped the mass shooting at the FedEx facility a week or so ago.  Next, in Arizona, students can now attend school in person and without having to wear face masks.  However, when the state’s mask mandate ends in May, Oregon is considering passing a law that will require faces masks on everyone forever.  That is correct- FOREVER.  Crazy flipping left-wing socialists.  Next, President Donald J. Trump is urging ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden to reinstate the travel ban that protected the nation so well from the Chi-Vi pandemic.   Speaking of President Donald J. Trump, Ohio GOP lawmakers want to rename a state park for the 45th president.   Speaking of befuddled old Joe Biden, he backs a bill to make Washington, D.C., the 51st state.  People, just return the land to Maryland.  Enough!
  86. 2021 Tuesday L: Political News III– The U.S. ambassador to Moscow, John Sullivan, is coming home for consultations after Joe Biden continues slandering Vladimir Putin.  Speaking of Mr. Putin and Russia, the word from Moscow is ‘IF Joe Biden wants a summit with Mr. Putin, it will depend on U.S. actions.’   Elsewhere, in Florida, Republican Governor Ron DeSantis signs a bill that will allow the state to tax $1 billion in online purchases.   Next, North Carolina won’t pass a bill banning youth tranny procedures.  NOT right.  Wait until you’re 18 and then if you wish to destroy your body, it’s ON YOU.   Meanwhile, Willie Nelson is encouraging Joe Biden to make the ‘pot holiday’ an official one.   Finally, like Gary Gilmore in Utah back in 1977, a death row inmate in Nevada, Zane Michael Floyd, wants the option of being executed via firing squad.   Finally, Los Angeles, California, Mayor Eric “The Grub” Garcetti, NOT TO BE OUTDONE BY FELLOW LEFTISTS, is proposing a universal basic income (that ONLY minorities will receive).
  87. 2021 Tuesday M: Political News IV– Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, says that “WOKE” companies will feel a backlash in the aftermath of Major League Baseball withdrawing the All-Star Game and MLB Draft from the Peach State.  Meanwhile, a recent poll says that less than one-third of Americans are aware of Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation into the Joe Biden-Russia-Chi-Com connection.
  88. 2021 Tuesday N: Foreign News / Overseas News– Chi-Com President Xi Jinping gives a thinly veiled warning to Joe Biden not to pursue a path of unilateralism.  Meanwhile, General Frank McKenzie, head of U.S. Central Command, says that ‘pulling out of Afghanistan will make the War on Terror that much more difficult to prosecute.’   Elsewhere, Bill Gates and loads of world leaders will attend the ‘Biden climate summit.’  This should be fun to watch.  Next, Russia’s defense minister says, ‘U.S. actions in the Black Sea are becoming increasingly provocative.’  We would advise Joe Biden not to send U.S. Naval assets into the Black Sea as whatever senile old Joe sends would NOT be able to withstand a concerted Russian attack nor might Turkey allow the vessels to pass back through the Dardanelles to the Mediterranean.  It could be a real cluster-f**k.  Finally, Admiral Charles Richard, head of U.S. Strategic Command, issues a dire warning to the administration: the Chi-Coms and the Russians are modernizing their nuclear forces much faster than anything the United States is doing.  Sadly, WOKE issues for the Democrats are much more important than defending the nation.[xvii]
  89. 2021 Tuesday O: Stay tuned for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1652 with a $257 million jackpot on the line.  Here are the numbers: 06, 23, 43, 49, 52, and Mega 05.  Out of 166,921 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $1,806,354.  The winning ticket was sold at the Richmond New May Wah Supermarket in San Francisco, CA 94118.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 567,674 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 202,919 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 455 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.

  95. 2022 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.696 per gallon, $4.106 in Florida, $5.240 in Hawaii, and $4.682 in Washington state.[xxv]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Louisiana- $3.869.  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 22nd LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Saudi Arabia: $2.348 per U.S. Gallon.[xxvi] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,397,730,855,439 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxvii]  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 Philippines the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Australia.  This nation holds $40,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  96. 2022 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– It’s Day No. 56 in the Russo-Ukrainian War with no end in sight.  Germany says that by the end of the year, there will be no more oil coming into their country from Russia nor will there be any natural gas shortly after that.  They must know that President Donald J. Trump is returning soon, and that oil and natural gas will be flowing from the United States once again.
  97. 2022 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Our glorious Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the border disaster for the past 383 days.  Worse, she has not shown up to do the job in 297 days.  By our count, the cost of caring for the Biden-Harris regime’s illegal aliens since January 01, 2022, is $700,740,760.  Next, since the duo took their oaths to defend the country and its Constitution, the cost of caring for the illegal alien invaders is $42,446,546,503.  Since the first day of the year, we contend 1,119,308 illegal alien invaders have arrived in the country while the conservative low estimate of illegals believed to be in the country is 46,550,965.  We believe the truer number is between 85-to-125 million illegals which is an intolerable amount.  Good news: the 7th bus of illegals arrived in the nation’s capital today.  Dump ‘em out on the White House lawn.  Put them to work. (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).

  103. 2022 Wednesday M: Joe Biden Regime News I– A new poll of U.S. military veterans says the majority of them believe that Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mark A. Milley is BAD for morale.  Speaking of someone else BAD for the nation’s morale, Joe Biden sees only 26-percent approval among Hispanic voters.  This is not good for the regime.   Next, Joe Biden- well, White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain or perhaps the Easter bunny- is demoting Acting ATF Director Marvin Richardson and bringing in U.S. Attorney Gary Restaino from Arizona to run the ship while his new nominee, former Ohio U.S. Attorney Steve Dettlebach tries to make it through confirmation in the U.S. Senate.
  104. 2022 Wednesday N: Joe Biden Regime News II– In yet another sell-out by the Biden regime, the Bidenistas are canceling nuclear sea-launched cruise missile known as the SLCM-N, and the B83 gravity nuclear bombs designed.  It would appear that the administration is doing what Joe Biden and the Democrats always accused President Donald J. Trump- the legitimate president- of doing, being a stooge for the Russians.  Joe Biden and the Democrats surrounding him are the TRUE stooges of not just the Russians but of the Chi-Coms.   Twenty-fifth Amendment anyone?
  105. 2022 Wednesday O: Joe Biden Regime News III– Supposedly, ‘Joe Biden’ held a confab with his top military generals today as events in Ukraine continue going from bad to worse.  Eastern European leaders however are journeying to Kyiv to walk the streets with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.   However, U.S. cybersecurity agencies and foreign allies are warning of massive Russian cyberattacks coming our way.  Oh, perish the thought.
  106. 2022 Wednesday P: Joe Biden Regime News IV– The Centers for Disease Control have asked the Biden regime to ask the Department of Justice to appeal the federal judge’s slap-down of mask mandates on air travel.  Dutifully, U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland announced today that he is going to contest the ruling, spending millions of taxpayer dollars with which to overturn an extremely popular ruling with the American people.  They just keep striking out on one issue after another that could help Democrats win in the fall.
  107. 2022 Wednesday Q: Political News I– Rep. Byron Donalds, R-FL 19th district, says that the Centers for Disease Control NEVER provided reasons for keeping masks on air travel.   Next, a new poll says that President Donald J. Trump holds an insurmountable lead over his closest possible Republican contenders in 2024 and a massive-massive-massive lead over losers such as Senator Mitt Romney, RINO-UT, and U.S. Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell who would never run anyway.  His time in GOP politics is coming to an end within his next election cycle.  He’s going the way of Di-Fi.
  108. 2022 Wednesday R: Political News II- The Senate Majority PAC- a Democrat fund-raising monster- is rolling out a massive ad blitz to support crumbling Senator Tammy Baldwin, DS-WI, who is among many at risk of losing their seats in November.  The Democrats are rolling out massive ad campaigns across the fruited plain with which- or so they hope- to maintain some hope of holding a majority.  They stand better chance of dumping illegals in all 50 states and giving them the right to vote with 30-day residency which is why the GOP must go out NOW and begin recruiting the illegals to register GOP.  NOW.
  109. 2022 Wednesday S: U.S. Military News– In Ohio, the first ever Courts Martial of a U.S. Air Force Major General William Cooley is underway as jury selection commences.  The general is accused of forcibly groping and kissing a subordinate.  At least it’s not for refusing to take the Chi-Vi vaccine.
  110. 2022 Wednesday T: Big Tech News– Big Tech strikes again: Google takes down Hong Kong leadership contender John Lee’s YouTube account.  WTF is wrong with these people?  Meanwhile, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis- fresh from leading his state forward in the battle to force Disney to return to being at least, a neutral company, and at best, the American company that it once was is going after yet another WOKE target: Twitter.  The Sunshine State is threatening Twitter’s board of directors with a lawsuit over its rejection of Elon Musk’s buyout offer.  How can they do this, you ask?  Well, not considering an offer that would enrich ALL shareholders is a rejection of their fiduciary obligation to their shareholders and for this, the worthless company can be sued in court.   It is interesting to note that Governor DeSantis holds Twitter stock.  Not good for Twitter.
  111. 2022 Wednesday U: Big Tech News II– Another Big Tech icon sputtering into the wastebin of history like video shops is Netflix.  Having lost more than 200,000-plus users in recent months, shares of the online ‘video shop’ have fallen 23-percent.  Once Netflix went all WOKE, they, too, lost their allure, paying the Obamas hundreds of millions of dollars for some of the crappiest ‘entertainment’ on the Net.  How sad.  Meanwhile, it appears that CNN+ is doomed to circle the crapper, too.  Don’t these flipping liberals ever learn the hard lessons?  The American people are middle-right and don’t want all this WOKE CRAP.
  112. 2022 Wednesday V: Popular Culture News– Northern Elementary School in York, Pennsylvania, by an 8-1 vote shot down an attempt by some sick f**ks to establish an afterschool Satan club.  These evil clubs operate in four other places around the country, opening a door to things better left alone by enticing young people that it’s all just, good clean fun.  Bullshit.  You know, you can tell when a culture is in its decline.  Here is how: (1) constant political strife bordering or leading to civil war.  (2) open borders and an inability to do what’s necessary to stop barbarians from flowing across it- namely, use of force to stop the invasion.  (3) loss of common culture, language, belief in God (4) embracing all things perverse such as homosexuality, perversion, chicks with dicks, mentally ill believing they are something they are biologically incapable of being (5) the acceptance of dark ‘religious faiths’ such as satanism, abortion on demand, the eradication of the sick, the infirm, the mentally challenged (6) the corruption, i.e., the sexualization of children, minors, and sexual abuse (7) rampant crime, especially violent crime, loss of law and order, abrogation of government’s duty to protect its citizenry from thugs and criminals (8) constant wars for no apparent reason, the worrying of foreign events over domestic events, the worrying about noncitizens over citizens, i.e., the replacement theory, which is indeed FACT, NOT THEORY.  Each of these things is bad enough but combined together and it’s the End of Times.  We have a leader who should be in the old folks’ home, and we are well on our way to the end of the line for the United States.
  113. 2022 Wednesday W: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3657 what with a $35 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 02, 29, 36, 40, 47, and Mega 11.  Out of 111,308 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $19,284 apiece.   One ticket was sold at Bob’s Liquors in Redding, CA 96002 while the other was sold at Neighbors’ Market and Spirits in Galt, CA 95632.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #978 with a jackpot of $370 million up for grabs: 20, 30, 45, 55, 56, and Power 14.  Out of 94,565 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $13,235 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

[i] We look forward to presenting the music of Grand Funk Railroad sometime in the late 2020s.

[ii] As usual, our main sources for the heroic Battle of Dien Bien Phu in which several thousand French Union troops fought against tens of thousands of ravenous communist soldiers comes from “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, De Capo Press, 2006.

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

[iv] We promoted the music of this venerable British rock band as part of a series of interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This included the Small Faces, Faces, Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood, Jeff Beck, Steve Marriott, Humble Pie, and other interconnected parts.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[v] We began promoting the music of Queen- as well as its individual members (Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor, and John Deacon)- on Monday, 14-January-2019 through Monday, 01-April-2019.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[vi] At some point in the distant future, we hope to do the music of the famed rocker, Prince.  Be sure to remain aware for the day that we do.

[xvi] When Republicans adapt to the rules of the ‘immigration game’ and begin registering illegal aliens as members of the GOP and word begins getting out that Republicans are playing by Democrat rules, a massive explosion of immediate deportation will commence immediately.  Families will be separated, babies squalling, kids crying, mothers and fathers reaching out to one another, as the Dems stuff them onto every plane, train, truck, boat, hell, maybe even the Hyperloop if it’s in service by then and dumping them across the border in Mexico.   The Democrats will become the BAD GUYS and the Republicans will be able to commiserate with the illegals.  What a day that will be.

[xvii] We have predicted since ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden ‘won’ the 2020 Presidential Election that it would not surprise any of us if the Russians, the Chi-Coms, the North Koreans, the Iranians, the Venezuelans, the Cubans, and all the Third World countries in the orbit of Beijing were to act in concert against the U.S. and her interests.  What better opportunity would they have?  Unless President Donald Trump reenters the White House, we are sitting ducks.

  66. 2017 Tuesday: Along the coastline of Zawiya, Libya, the bodies of 87 African migrants wash ashore.  They were the lucky ones as ISIS was selling other Sub-Saharan Africans as slaves in various marketplaces.  Meanwhile, to the shock of Democrats and leftists, President Donald J. Trump authorizes the Department of Homeland Security to commence rounding up and deporting illegal aliens wherever they uncover them, rather like the Operation Wetback of the late 1940s and early to mid-1950s.   A government’s first obligation is to ITS people, not illegal aliens.
  67. 2018 Wednesday: Famed televangelist Billy Graham, a man who provided counseling and support to every president from Harry S. Truman to George W. Bush, passed away in his sleep at age 99.  Elsewhere, following the now infamous St. Valentine’s Day Massacre 2018 in Tallahassee, Florida, gun control advocates, parents, teachers, students, and everyone else is demanding something be done to stop this stuff.  The shooter should never have been in school, but Obama era policies prevented educators from booting sickos and the police from behaving proactively rather reactively.  It is a horrible thing.  Meanwhile, students across the country stage walkouts in protest of such gun violence.
  68. 2019 Thursday: Multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Peter Tork, member of the Monkees[ix], passed away at age 77 on this date.  Meanwhile, a federal judge rules against U.S. Secretary of Labor Alex Acosta, accusing of him of having ‘broken the law’ back in 2008 when serial sexual abuser Jeffrey Epstein- good friend of Bill and Hillary Clinton, among others- when Acosta was the prosecutor in a sex case in which the wealthy business mogul was involved.  They gave the guy a sweetheart plea deal apparently.  You convict on what you can convict.  Epstein has been accused of mistreating numerous girls.
  69. 2020 Friday: On Fox News Channel, Democratic candidate Tom “Green Jeans” Steyer swears on the Bill Hemmer program that he ‘will be on the upcoming Tuesday night debate stage.’  He also promises that he is the only one who can defeat President Trump in November which is delusional.  His fellow Democrats want him and his best bud, “Tiny Mikey” Bloomberg as much as they want anal herpes.  We expect him either to drop out soon or go third party and contest for the Green Party (or Peace and Freedom Party) nomination.  Meanwhile, the Democrats are claiming that ‘Russia is going to help Trump steal the 2020 Election.’  Here we go again.  Question for Democrats: IF you so fear foreign involvement in U.S. presidential elections then why the f**k are you not demanding for ALL illegal aliens to be rounded up and deported immediately?  Finally, it looks like the jurors in the Harvey Weinstein multiple rape trial are going to find the POS guilty.  Elections have consequences, folks.  Had Hillary Rodham Clinton won in 2016, Harvey would still be raping young starlets.
  70. 2021 Sunday: Day 33 of the usurper Joe Biden Regime- will it ever end?  First, ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden says he has ‘no plans to invite Russia to upcoming G 7 talks; we bet he would invite the Chi-Coms if the other world powers would allow him.  Next, Joe Biden is considering Rahm “Dead Fish” Emanuel, former mayor of Chicago to be his ambassador to Japan.  However, outrage over this pathetic POS is growing on both sides of the aisle.  Still, we bet he gets the job.  In other ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden news, noted author and China expert Gordon Chang says, ‘the Chi-Coms have no respect for their stooge in the White House.’  We agree. 
  71. 2021 Sunday A: In other Chi-Com news, former NSA official Matthew Pottinger says there’s ‘plenty of evidence linking the Xi Jinping Bat Flu to both the Chi-Com military and to lax standards in the Wuhan Institute of Virology,’ which in our eyes, created the perfect storm of events to get Trump out of the White House.  Finally, the ‘Biden White House’ is talking to the Iranians, seeking to get detained Americans returned home.  (Probably going to require $1.5 billion in cash on pallets in the middle of the night, there, Joe, just like what you and Barack Obama did).
  72. 2021 Sunday B: New Mexico Democrat Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham finds herself in trouble, accused of using more $13,000 of the taxpayers’ money to buy groceries, alcohol, and on dry-cleaning bills.  Remove her from office.    Elsewhere, former White House adviser under President Donald J. Trump and immigration czar in the Trump administration- Stephen Miller- says, ‘Joe Biden’s immigration policy is madness.’  Speaking of this madness, RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel says, ‘Joe Biden is responsible for creating the crisis along the southern border.’  As if that’s not bad enough, Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security is dumping 25 illegal aliens per day into the San Diego, California, area as well into southern Texas in what appears to be a targeted dumping of unwanted illegal aliens who should be thrown back as soon as they are caught crossing the border.  And you don’t think the REPLACEMENT THEORY does not exist, that it’s another so-called ‘conspiracy theory.’  Bull crap.  Everything the liberals are doing, and which people recognize they’re doing, the scream “CONSPIRACY THEORY!”
  73. 2021 Sunday C: It’s official- President Donald J. Trump will be speaking at CPAC in Florida next week, his first speaking engagement since having the 2020 Presidential Election stolen from him (that’s right, I said it!).  Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, R-GA, says, ‘there’s no denying that the GOP belongs to Donald J. Trump.’  Period.   Meanwhile, Representative Ashley Hinson, R-IA, pushes back on the dimwit Bill Gates suggestion that Americans learn to eat synthetic beef.  Good.  Because anyone talking about ‘synthetic beef’ may as well be talking about ‘Soylent Green.’  Look for the movie.   
  74. 2021 Sunday D: Elsewhere, Representative Michael McCaul, R-TX, thanks ‘AOC for crossing the aisle and urging help to the suffering citizens of Texas.’   Finally, Congressman Steve Scalise, R-LA, says that ‘$60 billion already exists with which to reopen the nation’s schools.’  Why won’t the Dems use it?   Add to that the fact that Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson said that ‘Joe Biden missed an opportunity to work with the GOP on the stimulus with which to help the American people, beset by the Chinese Virus.’ 
  75. 2021 Sunday E: In Kentucky,  a black police officer is fired for having handed over the personal information on his fellow non-black police officers to Black Lives Matter communists.  Elsewhere, Camden County, Missouri, becomes the first Second Amendment sanctuary county in the state.  We want to see this spread to every freedom-loving part of the country.  Next, a NASA supply vessel on the way to the International Space Station bears the name Katherine Johnson named for one of the iconic mathematicians depicted in the film “Hidden Figures.”  She was the main black female whose calculations were spot on and enabled the United States to win the space race and to put men on the moon and to return them to Earth. 
  76. 2021 Sunday F: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 111,277,677 confirmed cases, +373,840, 2,464,390, confirmed deaths, +8,321, and 62,783,718 confirmed recoveries, +272,053.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 28,325,091 confirmed cases, up 64,375 from yesterday’s reporting, 502,493 confirmed deaths, UP 1,660, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- same as reported for nearly three-plus weeks now.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile moron.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 172,892 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, YOU claimed you had a plan to defeat the communist virus, what the hell are YOU going to do about it- sit on your ass and blame everything on Donald Trump.  Shame on you, ‘Usurper Joe,’ shame on you.
  77. 2021 Sunday G: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,527,454 confirmed cases, 49,167 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,778 confirmed cases, 430 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 336,819 confirmed cases, 4,886 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Minnesota: currently, they have 479,104 confirmed cases, 6,500 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 750,043 confirmed cases, 5,577 confirmed deaths, and 693,730 confirmed recoveries. 
  78. 2021 Sunday H: The Boy Scouts of America welcome their first class of female Eagle Scouts.  Next, United to stop flights on some Boeing 777 planes.   Meanwhile, since we no longer watch Saturday Night Live, we learn today from news sources that the comedy show won’t portray either feeble old Joe Biden or his VP Kamala Harris.  That figures.  Elsewhere, a new poll shows that tourism and the hospitality industries are going to have a slow rebound, one not expected to occur until sometime in the end of Kamala Harris,’ uh, Joe Biden’s first term in 2024. 
  79. 2022 Monday: Please, stick around for any updates…

TODAY IN HISTORY, TUESDAY NOVEMBER 23, 2021, BLOG POST #4,266

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

Monday, November 23, 2020, Today in History Blog Post:  

Joe Biden said it best himself: we have created the greatest election fraud system the country has ever seen- why are very few taking him at his word?

Monday, November 23, 2020, Today in History:  

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

ENDNOTES:

[i] Had the Germans not been sidetracked by having to crush a recalcitrant Yugoslavia, which took six weeks, they would have invaded the Soviet Union in April or early May and most likely would have knocked the USSR out of the war.  The only thing that saved the Russians was “General Winter,” what with freezing cold enveloping the Axis troops.

[ii] Although Italian and Romanian troops had warned the Germans of major movement across the Volga River, the Germans relied on faulty intelligence and believed the Russians were spent and would not launch any counteroffensives over the winter.  Boy, were they wrong, the Russians amassed a humongous force and swept over the Axis troops north and south of the city, trapping the German defenders within the city in one of the largest land battles of the war.

[iii] We began offering the musi of Pink Floyd beginning on Monday, 20-April-2020 through Sunday, 12-July-2020.  This included not only the band’s music but also that of all five members- Syd Barrett, Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Rick Wright, and Nicky Mason.

[iv] We offered the music of Queen and of each of its band members beginning on Monday, 14-January-2019 through Monday, 01-April-2019.   Please seek out the music of this incredible British rock band.  We love them and know you will, too.

[v] Vice President Al Gore did everything possible to steal this election from Republican George W. Bush.  Thankfully, the legal system stopped the attempt, but this would not stop the Democrats from trying to do it again in 2016 and once they lost that election, spend every waking moment trying to get Donald J. Trump out of office instead of doing the work of the American people.

[vi] Since spinning off from the Soviet Union, the Ukraine has been among the most corrupt nations in the world as what example did, they have to emulate?  Now, in 2019, when President Trump wants to know WTF was going on in 2016 with the spying on him by the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign and the Obama-controlled State Department and U.S. Deep State, everyone goes bat crap crazy.  Enough!  It happened and it is time to find out what exactly happened and who exactly was behind it.

[vii] It is important to note that this Islamist POS tried to transform Egypt into an Islamist nation, opposed to Israel, and allied with the Muslim Brotherhood.  It is important to note that one of his biggest supporters on the world stage was our U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama who never met an extremist he didn’t like.

[viii] The important first step, according to sources, is that President Obama sought to enable the Iranians to develop nuclear weapons so it extremely important that when Donald J. Trump won the 2016 Presidential Election that he tore this crap up and threw it into the wastebasket.

[ix] We hope to begin offering Sly and the Family Stone’s discography sometime in 2022.

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