Rob Wittman, R-VA 1st congressional district, told Newsmax that a new bill will hold the Chi-Coms wholly responsible for letting loose on the world the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Meanwhile, even as more and more evidence continues to come out showing that the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines are harmful to human beings due to toxic ingredients, Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci says the government is going to dump $3.2 billion into creating antiviral pills.  (Note- Dr. “Phony Tony,”[xxxii] how much of that $3.2 billion will go into YOUR pockets?)  Elsewhere, as the Delta variant of the ‘VID continues to spread, federal government is doubling down on everyone to get vaccinated with the yet-to-be-approved by the FDA vaccines.  Friends, when drug manufacturers have QUALIFIED IMMUNITY stripped away from them (as it should be from the Chi-Coms in the World Court) and people affected negatively by their products can sue them, we might consider getting inoculated then.
  83. 2021 Thursday I: Joe Biden News–  Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says the recent ‘Putin-Biden summit’ shows how Russian leader Vladimir Putin is testing the Biden regime.  Meanwhile, Fred H. Fleitz, CEO of the Center for Security Policy, affirms this by saying that the ‘recent summit between Russia’s leader and (dimwitted) Joe Biden harmed U.S. security.’  (Note- Joe Biden told Mr. Putin NOT to hack into 16 industries or companies which means the other ones are on the table).   Rep. Mike Turner, R-OH 10th congressional district, said of ‘Joe’s summit’ that he had ‘no real goals for his meeting with Vladimir Putin.’  In other regime news, the U.S. Department of Justice is dropping the lawsuit against former Donald J.

  84. 2021 Thursday J: Political News I– Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, has introduced a bill with which to abolish the ATF- the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms (and Explosives).  Meanwhile, a new poll says that ’74-percent of Republican voters support state-wide election audits.’  Amen.  We suspect it’s higher than that.   Meanwhile, U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas says questions regarding ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris’ failure to visit the southern border in 86 flipping days no less are both ‘unfair’ and ‘disrespectful.’  F**k her and f**k YOU.
  85. 2021 Thursday K: Political News II– Mark and Patricia McCloskey, the St. Louis couple who defended their home from violent Black Lives Matter fecal matter protesters a summer ago pled guilty to misdemeanors to get this bogus case off their backs.  When BLM trash knocked the gates of their private community and threatened them and their pets with rape, death, and the burning down of their property, the duo grabbed their guns, went outside, and stood in front of their home armed and ready to go.  YET, they NEVER once pointed their legally-owned firearms at the thugs creating havoc in their neighborhood.  God bless them and let’s see the BLM thugs hauled before court and given some stiff prison sentences.
  86. 2021 Thursday L: Political News III– Conservative political activists in Michigan are demanding an Arizona-style 2020 Election audit.  Next, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the ‘Gropin’ Gov’ celebrates the end of the pandemic with a massive show of fireworks in the Big Apple.  Both he and NYC Mayor Bill ‘Bag O’ Fries’ Di Blasio are in a celebratory mood after driving the state and the city into economic collapse.  Elsewhere, J. Chuck Todd, the little snowflake says of 2020 Election fraud proponents that if they don’t accept the premise the election was honest, ‘it’s going to be a painful interview.’  J. Chuck- F— you.
  87. 2021 Thursday M: U.S. Supreme Court News– By a vote of 7-2, the United States Supreme Court shagged off another GOP challenge to Obamacare.  Go figure.  (Note- as long as John Roberts serves as chief justice, we will NEVER get this evil monstrosity off the backs of the American people.  The Biden regime crows that ‘SCOTUS NOT overturning Obamacare is a BFD’).  However, the case was rejected on STANDING and not on the MERITS of the case.  Next, the Supreme Court stands up for the Catholic Church as it rebuffs a lawsuit brought by LGBTQIA+ fascists seeking to destroy a Catholic charity placing kids with foster parents.  The gays want foster kids placed in homosexual homes which the charity says goes against the teachings of the church.  We concur.
  88. 2021 Thursday N: Business News– After soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo pushes Coca-Cola aside and endorses water, the soft drink manufacturer’s stock tumbles by $4 billion in value.  (Note- we say ‘F**K woke corporations, they get what they deserve.  Soft drinks are nonessential foods; no, people choose to drink them just as we can un-choose to drink them and even better, carry them in our restaurants and foodservice operations.  Screw them).
  89. 2021 Thursday O: Joe Biden Regime News I– There is a growing outcry for the Biden regime to release information related as to HOW MANY undercover agents of various federal law enforcement agencies helped carry out the FALSE FLAG OPERATION the world had the misfortune to see on January 6, 2021, when Antifa and Black Lives Matter human fecal matter infiltrated the peaceful ranks of Trump supporters and turned a peaceful gathering into a riotous, violent mob, one dimwits like Joe Biden still claim ‘killed a cop.’   Speaking of these more than 450 poor souls locked up in solitary confinement, most are not expected to go to trial until sometime within the next 2-3 years.
  90. 2021 Thursday P: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– As the Derek Chauvin defense team continues its push toward demanding a retrial of their client over all sorts of corrupt activities and poor-timing on behalf of the city of Minnesota, the prosecution is doing everything it can so as to avoid having to try Chauvin again.  We fully suspect that thanks to the actions of one juror who LIED on the juror questionnaire and those of Rep. Maxine “Prune Face” Waters, CPUSA-CA 43rd congressional district that NOT only will Officer Chauvin receive another trial, but he will also be acquitted which will lead the DOJ to double down on double jeopardy.
  91. 2021 Thursday Q: National Security News– The FCC says it will explore whether Chi-Com telecommunications equipment should be banned over their ties to the People’s Liberation Army.
  92. 2021 Thursday R: Environmental News I– It’s summertime and the American West and Southwest is experiencing elevated temperatures.  Morons like Sandy “The Fly” Cortez are shrieking about ‘CLIMATE CHANGE!  GLOBAL WARMING!  EXTREME WEATHER!’  Those of us who have been around for decades understand that when it’s summer in some locales, it gets flipping hot.  Enough said.  (Note- the dreadful thing is, the Climate Change dupes want to take away our air conditioning).
  93. 2021 Thursday S: U.S. House of Representatives News– U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi champions her new “Juneteenth” federal holiday making it the 12th paid federal holiday.  Drooling Joe Biden is expected to sign the bill into law.   Meanwhile, the GOP House campaign arm opens up to accepting cryptocurrency donations.  In other Democrat-dominated House news, Judiciary Committee Dems are seeking Trump-era subpoenas for data on Democrat lawmakers suspected of leaking like sieves.  Here we go again, another BOGUS investigation.
  94. 2021 Thursday T: U.S. Senate News– U.S. Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says he will pass the federal budget sans any output by Republicans.  He could give a shit whether Republicans vote for the budget or they don’t.  Meanwhile, U.S. Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell dismisses Senator Joe Manchin’s, D-W. VA, stance on voting rights.  Everyone knows spineless Senator Manchin will drop to his knees before the fawning POS majority leader and do his bidding.
  95. 2021 Thursday U: Louisiana State News– Governor John Bel Edwards, D-LA, says the state will END enhanced unemployment benefits as of July 31, 2021.  It is time for Louisianans to return to work.  NOW.
  96. 2021 Thursday V: Texas State News– Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, and leaders of both political parties held a joint news conference today in which the state will make a down payment of $250 million to begin again the construction of the border wall along the frontier with Mexico.  What we anticipate is that if Texas and Arizona begin reinforcing their borders with corrupt Mexico, illegals will flood through New Mexico and California which will cause voters in those two states to demand better border security.  The American people will no longer stand for a tidal wave of bottom-of-the-barrel illegal aliens running amok in their country.  We are contributing to the effort to secure our southern border.   (Note- we think that Governor Abbott should bring in former Sheriff Joe Arpaio to run the desert gulags for the illegal aliens- HE knows how to make people NEVER want to break the law again…).  Meanwhile, Governor Abbott signs ‘constitutional carry’ into law meaning Texans do not have to have a concealed carry permit to carry a legal firearm.
  97. 2021 Thursday W: Economic News– Unemployment numbers surged UP last month by 412,000 new claims for jobless benefits.  Oh, no, Joe, your ‘economic plans’ are collapsing the economy.  Dumb ass.
  98. 2021 Thursday X: U.S. Military News– The Associated Press reports that since 2010 the U.S. military has ‘mysteriously’ lost more than 1,900 weapons.  Say what?  
  99. 2021 Thursday Y: Observation of the Day– In other news, it is becoming increasingly clear that our military no longer has combat-qualified officers leading it but political hacks and appointees working to destabilize it and then to rebuild it as an updated version of the RED ARMY.  How soon will we see political commissars appointed to monitor the minds and actions of the soldiers?  How soon will it be before we see troops falling back from overwhelming odds being machine-gunned by their commissars?  Don’t laugh, we bet the Russian military that morphed into becoming the Red Army never thought their leaders would be more concerned with politics than with fighting and most importantly, winning wars.  We would say that this is among the reasons we spent more than 20 years in the septic tank of Afghanistan or why when President Donald J. Trump assumed office back in January 2017 that we suddenly found out we had troops in more places- like Equatorial Africa and parts of the Middle East we had no clue we had troops.  What we are seeing is a combination of the Red Army married with wealth for the top positions while everyone else must fall into line, follow the political orders of the day while paying scant attention to fighting to win against diabolical enemies.  (Note- Chef Vicky- let me know what YOU think).  (Note #2- look at NASA- now we are concerned with putting the first women and people of color on the moon?  While that’s great, what if they aren’t as skilled as other astronauts?  That is not a mission I would ever seek to participate).
  100. 2022 Friday:  Stick around and discover whatever the heck is going on today…

[vi] When we do Electric Flag, we will do Al Kooper.

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

149. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, MAY 29, 2022

2013 Wednesday: Shuanghui, a Chinese meat processing company, buys Smithfield Foods for $4.72 billion; Smithfield was the world’s largest meat processing company. (Boy, the United States is truly f**ked, is it not? How has it come to pass that Chi-Coms are buying up American food processing companies? Are we putting our ‘national security’ into their conniving hands?)

  46. 2006 Monday: After a U.S. military convoy collides with a car full of Afghan civilians killing several of them, thousands of Afghans take to the streets demanding the United States get the hell out of their country.  NOW.  (Note- in 2021, the U.S. would still be there accomplishing NOTHING).  In other news, Hezbollah says they are going to begin lighting Israel up with Iranian-built rockets.
  47. 2007 Tuesday: U.S. health officials swoop in, grab up a guy, and put him into quarantine after this individual- infected with a highly drug-resistant form of tuberculosis- flew not once but flipping twice on two transatlantic flights.
  48. 2008 Thursday: President Hu Jintao of the People’s Republic of China is calling once again for a resumption of talks between the PRC and the free nation of Taiwan.  Elsewhere, the World Food Bank says that it’s going to offer a $2.1 billion aid package with which to combat the global food crisis.  $200 million will be earmarked for the countries most at risk (but no help for North Korea).  Meanwhile, jihadists running amok in northern Iraq carry out not one but two suicide bombings that deliver at least 20 people to convene with Allah while causing another 42 to wish they could convene with the Big Guy.
  49. 2009 Friday: After two days of bombings in Pakistan, things there are relatively quiet today.  Friday prayers and all.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of Defense announces that it’s going to create a computer-security military command.  (Note- 11 years later under the Biden regime, there is still a need for such an entity).
  50. 2010 Saturday: The people in Gaza are getting excited because the ‘flotilla is coming, the flotilla is coming’ but Israeli vessels are sweeping along the coastline of this godforsaken hellhole.  Meanwhile, the flotilla is trying to get BIG NAME celebrities and politicians off Cyprus and onto their ‘fleet’ so they can force their way through the net and into Gaza.  Only anti-Semites and Jew-hating countries try to do this crap to the most civilized country in the region.
  51. 2011 Sunday: In Dallas, Texas, former U.S. Secretary of Defense- Acting- Bill Clements died.  A Republican, he served under President Richard M. Nixon from 05-24-1973 to 07-02-1973 and then went onto become the 42nd and 44th governor of Texas.  Elsewhere, Malta becomes the LAST European Union nation to legalize divorce.
  52. 2012 Tuesday: After thousands protest Brett Murray’s painting, “the Spear,” the gallery that agreed to exhibit the controversial artwork agreed to take it down.  The painting depicts South African President Jacob Zuma in a pose reminiscent of Vladimir Lenin with his junk hanging out of his pants.  Elsewhere, today is primary election day across the United States in several states with Governor Mitt Romney, RINO-MA, securing the GOP presidential nomination.  From here on out, the fight for the White House is on…
  53. 2013 Wednesday: Shuanghui, a Chinese meat processing company, buys Smithfield Foods for $4.72 billion; Smithfield was the world’s largest meat processing company.  (Boy, the United States is truly fucked, is it not?  How has it come to pass that Chi-Coms are buying up American food processing companies?  Are we putting our ‘national security’ into their conniving hands?)
  54. 2014 Thursday: Early election tallies show that Abdel Fattah el-Sisi will be the next president of Egypt; el-Sisi, the military commander who removed former president Mohamed Morsi from office due to mass protests, resigned his military position to run for president.  Elsewhere, the leaders of Belarus, Kazakhstan, and Russia sign a treaty that creates the Eurasian Economic Union.
  55. 2015 Friday: Heavy flooding in Texas has left at least 27 dead and led to 200 rescues or more; sadly, several people are still missing.  Meanwhile, former Baltimore, Maryland, mayor, and former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley announces that at 10:00 A.M. tomorrow, he will be seeking the 2016 Democratic Party’s presidential nomination.
  56. 2016 Sunday: Military assets in Niger are on the way to having a good day what with the locating of and then killing of at least 12 Boko Haram jihadists.  Keep up the decent work.  However, in Nigeria, a bombing attack kills at least four civilians and one trooper in the town of Biu.  Leave ‘em for the crows, boys.
  57. 2017 Monday: Famed golfer Tiger Woods suffers arrest for driving under the influence in Jupiter, Florida.   Elsewhere, Labour (communist) leader Jeremy Corbyn and Prime Minister Theresa May of the Conservative Party hold a debate.  (Note- this Corbyn guy is flaming crazy).  Meanwhile, in Caracas, Venezuela, as protesters march on the government, security thugs light them up with automatic weapons fire wounding at least 18 innocent civilians including two opposition leaders- Enrique Capriles Radonski and Carlos Paparoni.  That’s Venezuelan ‘justice’ for you.
  58. 2018 Tuesday: Roseanne Barr finds herself fired by ABC-TV, not longer after the reboot of her show, “Roseanne,” for having posted a ‘racist tweet.’  My, my.  Elsewhere, the low-life scum in Gaza begin firing hundreds of mortar rounds into Israel, the heaviest such bombardment in years.  This leads to the Israeli air force launching defensive attacks on positions held by the militants.  Exterminate this vermin and free the Palestinian people from the bondage Hamas and Hezbollah holds them.
  59. 2019 Wednesday: Disappointing to millions of crazed liberals and their RINO allies, U.S. Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III says, ‘charging President Donald J. Trump with a crime was never an option as there is no legal means with which to do so; however, the befuddled old fool says his report ‘does not exonerate the president either.’  Alas, the anti-Trump coup cooked up by President Barack Hussein Obama implodes, causing much embarrassment to the coup plotters.
  60. 2020 Friday: COVID-19 continues racking up numbers; however, with all the riots in the streets in various nations around the United States regarding the murder of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis cops, people are NOT social distancing nor are they wearing masks to protect themselves from the Chinese Virus; no, they are wearing them to protect their identities as they slander the memory of the murdered man by looting and burning down businesses, at least 130 as of this moment.  They also burned down brand-new low-income housing leaving the residents of the community out in the streets. 
  61. 2020 Friday A: Here are the global statistics for the Wuhan Virus Crisis, aka the Chinese Bat Flu: 5,885,490 confirmed cases, 363,061 confirmed deaths, and 2,468,011 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, here are the national stats: 1,779,204 confirmed cases, 104,007 confirmed deaths, and 382,023 confirmed recoveries.  As you know, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors in three U.S. states: California, Hawaii, and Washington.  Here are the stats for the Golden State: 103,886 confirmed cases, 4,068 confirmed deaths, BUT ONCE AGAIN, NO MENTION OF confirmed recoveries.  In Hawaii, these are the stats: 647 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 604 confirmed recoveries.   Finally, in the Evergreen State, here are the (questionable) stats: 21,013 confirmed cases, 1,111 confirmed deaths, but like California, NO MENTION as to confirmed recoveries which informs the serious reader that it’s all about politics.
  62. 2020 Friday B: President Trump tells the World Health Organization that we will no longer be donating to this bought-and-paid-for-organization of Beijing.  Of course, liberals are screeching and wailing over this in the same way they are trying to blame President Trump for what is taking place in Minnesota and across the country regarding George Floyd.  He also puts communist China on notice that IF they continue trying to crackdown on Hong Kong during the Bat Flu Virus Crisis, they will find the United States opposing them and their authoritarian policies (FREE Hong Kong!  FREE Tibet!  FREE Macau!  FREE Taiwan!  FREE Mainland China!).  Liberals are wailing over this, too.  Regarding Minnesota, the cop who had a significant role in murdering Mr. Floyd- former Officer Derek Chauvin- was taken into custody today and charged with murder.   
  63. 2020 Friday C: Not only in Minneapolis, Minnesota, riots break out across the nation, in Brooklyn, in Dallas, in Phoenix, in Atlanta, even in Bakersfield, California, home to the AICPENDBLOG.COM.  Outside the White House, hostile crowds continue battling with uniformed Secret Service officers, dressed in riot gear.  Chef Lilah Paulikovich says that “IF you do not believe that the collusion between the Democratic Party and communist China does not exist, how are these well-funded, inorganic, well-coordinated riots occurring?  It is a concerted effort to make President Trump look as bad as possible and a sign that the summer of 2020 is going to resemble the summer of 1968.  Still, President Trump will win re-election and it is interesting to note that it’s Blue States and Blue Cities where rioting is occurring.  Law enforcement: your sacred duty is to protect life and property: start busting heads.
  64. 2021 Saturday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 170,624,894 confirmed cases, +471,415, 3,548,573  confirmed deaths, +10,651 and 152,754,774 confirmed recoveries, +621,019.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 34,035,318 confirmed cases, UP 12,661 from yesterday’s reporting, 609,421 confirmed deaths, UP 460,[iii] and 27,818,961 confirmed recoveries, UP 51,921.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[iv]  
  65. 2021 Saturday A: NOTE: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 291,474 Chi-Vi deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 168,135 deaths

  69. 2021 Saturday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the four states in which we have chef-authors- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.192 per gallon, $2.868 in Florida, $3.929 in Hawaii, and $3.574 in Washington state.[xi]    Let’s look at one other location- U.S. Arkansas: $2.763.  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- Sri Lanka: $3.096 per U.S. Gallon.[xii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,345,037,086,457 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xiii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  70. 2021 Saturday F: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– Under Joe Biden’s new regulations, American employers can require vaccination proof as a condition of employment but- and this is the good part- illegal aliens will NEVER have to demonstrate vaccinations for anything.  Meanwhile, Rep. Andy Biggs, R-AZ 5th congressional district, says that the mask mandates are ‘neo-fascism.’  Elsewhere, the Michigan legislature passes a bill prohibiting Chi-Vi fines for businesses. 
  71. 2021 Saturday G: Business News–  Job searches are up in states that have severed ties with the expanded federal unemployment benefits program.  Once that extra money vanishes, people head back to work which they are doing in droves.  Meanwhile, a judge approves a class action lawsuit against Google who- as a WOKE entity- paid their 11,000 female employees WAY LESS than their male employees.  That is that POS Sundar Pichai for you- deport this idiot and his entire family back to Punjabistan.  Elsewhere, 20 GOP-led states are booting unemployment benefits for gig workers.  Get real jobs losers.
  72. 2021 Saturday H: Joe Biden Regime News I– Joe Biden is banking on the new $3.6 trillion in taxes he is slapping- supposedly on the wealthy but which will fall on everyone save the poor and the vermin illegal aliens flooding around the country- to pay for his $6.2 trillion in new spending, money he will be borrowing from the Chi-Coms.  Meanwhile, the House and Senate GOP are blasting Joe Biden’s defense spending as wholly inadequate seeing as how we are competing against the Chi-Coms, their Russian underlings, and their Iranian stooges.  Next, in other regime news, the Bidenistas are speeding up the processing of illegal alien families via refugee resettlement.  Finally, Joe Biden’s lips are zipped on WHY he is NOT fulfilling his campaign promise regarding cancellation of $50,000 per student per loan debt.  (Note- the dumb asses that voted for dribbling Joe Biden believing he would do this got played again just as Barack Hussein Obama played the dummies.  Never going to happen, not when the usurper in the White House is going to spend $6 trillion upon trillions of earlier spending.  Better luck next time, fools).
  73. 2021 Saturday I: Political News I–  Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-NY 22nd congressional district, boldly pointed out that the police reform bills favored by the Democrats are becoming problematic for them.  Amazing how the Dems slash police budgets and then are appalled by rising violent crime rates.  Go figure.
  74. 2021 Saturday J: Foreign News / Overseas News– Big problems in Canada what with the discovery of 215 corpses at an indigenous school.  (Note- Canada always likes to act like they are a kind, loving place but when it comes to their treatment of the so-called First Peoples, they make the United States look like amateurs).  Shame on them.
  75. 2021 Saturday K: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– For some unknown reason, convicted POS murderer Scott Peterson who murdered his wife and unborn child will not be put to death.  Guess Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom must need his vote in the recall election.  Meanwhile, a 14-year-old snot is going to be tried as an adult in Florida for the murder of a classmate.
  76. 2021 Saturday L: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto And Powerball Draws–  Here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3564: 07, 09, 23, 37, 42, and Mega 14.   Out of 131,234 winning tickets, the highest winners were 22 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $1,083 apiece.   Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #850: 11, 13, 22, 27, 46, and Mega 20.  – Out of 96,102 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were THREE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $18,068 apiece.

  62. 2013 Sunday: The Baltimore Ravens beat the San Francisco 49ers to win their second NFL championship in Super Bowl XLVII after someone blew the Louisiana Superdome’s power in New Orleans power out for 45 minutes.  Prior to the power outage, the Ravens had the 49ers down 28-6 but once it came back on, the 49ers were reinvigorated and almost beat the Ravens; however, the Ravens managed to come back to life themselves and ended up beating the 49ers by a score of 34-31 to win Super Bowl XLVII.  Baltimore quarterback, Joe Flacco, is the MVP for the game.  This marked the first time the 49ers had ever LOST a super bowl (and thank God, they did!).

  67. 2018 Saturday: The New York Times reported an accusation from actress Uma Thurman that disgraced movie mogul and BIG Democratic donor Harvey Weinstein had forced himself on her sexually years ago in a London hotel room; Weinstein acknowledged making an “awkward pass” (which means he did his best to RAPE her) but strongly denied any physical assault. 
  68. 2019 Sunday: In the lowest scoring super bowl of all time, Super Bowl LIII, the New England Patriots defense stifled the high-scoring Los Angeles Rams by a final score of 13-3.  This was perhaps the most boring super bowl of all time.  Julian Edelman was the game’s MVP as he provided most of the offense that won the game.  Maroon 5, Big Boi and some other schlub were the half-time show.  Elsewhere, Pope Francis becomes the first Roman Catholic pontiff to visit the Arabian Peninsula when he visits Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates.
  69. 2020 Monday: Much to the shock of his radio listeners, Rush Limbaugh announced that his doctors had diagnosed him with advanced lung cancer.  He promises to soldier on, and we certainly hope that he can.  We are rooting for you, Big Guy, but please, give up the stogies.   Elsewhere, as cases of COVID-19 continue getting out of hand, the Cruise Lines International Association bans all cruise lines stops in mainland China.  Meanwhile, on the Greek island of Lesbos which is overrun with thousands of Muslim ‘migrants’ from the Middle East, riot police have to break out tear gas and batons to quell migrants rioting and burning their holding camps over poor conditions.  The answer is simple: GO HOME.
  70. 2020 Monday A: As the impeachment trial of President Donald J. Trump nears its conclusion in the U.S. Senate, House managers (prosecutors) and defense attorneys for the 45th president begin making their closing remarks.  West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin urges for censure rather than conviction but of course, his far-left Democratic Party colleagues don’t listen to him.  The trial has been a farce from start to finish, mostly boring but at other times laughable.  The Democrats genuinely believe they are ‘killing it’ when in fact, they are turning off millions of Americans. 
  71. 2021 Wednesday: U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen calls a meeting with the SEC and the Federal Reserve over the GameStop craze.  Apparently, some people can make big money and others cannot; what a shame.  Next, as the GOP implores Joe Biden to agree to a lower COVID-19 Relief/Stimulus bill, he waves them off- no way.   Next, the House GOP are holding a meeting to determine the futures of Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene and Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney who has become extremely toxic.  We expect Greene will lose all committee assignments and will suffer in-party censure whereas a party will be thrown for Cheney.  IF this occurs, my colleagues in California say the days of voting for Kevin McCarthy are fast approaching an end.   Speaking of California politics, reprobate Democrat Congressman Adam “POS” Schiff is badgering soon-to-be-former Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom to make him the Golden State’s attorney general. 
  72. 2021 Wednesday A: The un-American New York Times is facing surprising blowback following their encouragement of Joe Biden to form a “1984-style” Truth Commission with which, liberals and BIG TECH can track, monitor, and disappear Americans’ online words and deeds.  WTF is wrong with these people?  Meanwhile, the U.S. Supreme Court does not accede to the Biden administration’s request to toss hearings on Trump administration immigration policies into the garbage, merely postpones them.  We shall see.  Elsewhere, Sinophile U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken announces the U.S. and Russia have extended the New Start Treaty for another five years.   Finally, Claudia Tenney, congresswoman from New York’s 22nd Congressional District declares victory with a 123-vote lead over sitting congressman Anthony Brindisi.
  73. 2021 Wednesday B: House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, she with the eyes drooping in two different directions, says ‘a 9/11-style TRUTH COMMISSION       is necessary to figure out how the Capitol Building was stormed by Antifa members posing as Trump supporters on January 6.  We doubt anything more will come from this because as numerous video clips continue surfacing showing Capitol Hill police officers waving the FALSE FLAG operators into the building, there can be but one conclusion: Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi- as head of the Capitol Police Department- gave the word to allow her Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs easy entry in the hope they could use it against former President Donald J. Trump.  We look forward to the results of yet another bogus ‘investigation’ led by Democrats.  Elsewhere, in California, former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer has thrown his hat into the ring to replace rapidly disappearing Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom.  The mayor’s first campaign ads are spectacular, and we hope he will be able to take the seat and save the state.    Finally, climate fraud John F. Kerry is blasted for flying in his PRIVATE JET to receive a ‘climate award.’  Hypocrite!
  74. 2021 Wednesday C: Congresswoman Nancy Mace calls out the Baby Evita- Sandy Cortez- aka AOC, aka Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez- the biggest leftwing crybaby in Congress, over her claims that she was cowering in her office closet while the EVIL MAGA supporters were outside in the hallway.  Congresswoman Mace who is two doors down from Sandy Cortez says, “IT NEVER HAPPENED.”  Yet, the mainstream news media remains incurious.  Personally, we know AOC had little to fear because she was briefed like everyone else in the Democratic Party that the Antifa and BLM human garbage were going after Republicans.   Elsewhere, Cancel Culture continues trying to destroy Americans, the latest target being Mike Lindell of My Pillow fame.  All because he believes the plentiful evidence of election fraud in November 2020, everyone is trying to shut him up, even that putz Bob Sellers on Newsmax who would not permit him to speak the day before.  Sorry, Newsmax, you need to boot Sellers back to FNC.
  75. 2021 Wednesday D: Communist China warns U.S. Secretary of State Sinophile Anthony Blinken NOT to interfere when it comes to Hong Kong either.  Blinken and the U.S. have already been warned off about interfering in Taiwan so now the Biden administration has been told to butt out on the issue of Hong Kong, too.  Elections have consequences- hey, Joe: are we going to return to the Transpacific Partnership, too?   Speaking of the State Department, its spokesperson says a U.N. ambassador must be confirmed and soon IF the United States is going to hold the Chi-Coms accountable.   Meanwhile, we learn that White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, stammering, stuttering, and always ‘circling back’ to answer reporters sent a homophobic tweet about Sen. Lindsey Graham, calling him, “Lady G.”  My, don’t you just love the ‘beautiful people’ that aren’t racists, bigots, homophobes, xenophobes, transphobes, haters, white supremacists, and the like?  Good one, Jen, good one.
  76. 2021 Wednesday E: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 104,142,856 confirmed cases, +570,195, 2,260,283, confirmed deaths, +17,045, and 57,839,230 confirmed recoveries, +336,520.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 26,730,817 confirmed cases, up 206,599 from yesterday’s reporting, 453,059 confirmed deaths, UP 5,312, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP- UNKNOWN- same number as last week’s.  NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 48,215 CHI-VI DEATHS.  Joe, you said you had a plan- where the f**k is it?
  77. 2021 Wednesday F: 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: 3,350,293 confirmed cases, 41,811 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,070 confirmed cases, 410 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 318,967 confirmed cases, 4,402 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Florida: currently, they have 1,744,619 confirmed cases, 27,467 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 667,216 confirmed cases, 4,928 confirmed deaths, and 589,288 confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other country, shall we?  Brazil: 9,296,245 confirmed cases, 226,666 confirmed deaths, and 8,160,929 confirmed recoveries.

  79. 2021 Wednesday H: The U.S. Senate via ‘budget reconciliation process’ has passed Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill.  With the cash flowing in from communist China, this bill will bankrupt the country for generations to come.   Speaking of BIG BUCKS, here are the numbers for tonight’s Super Lotto Draw #3531 with a $17 million pot up for grabs: 04, 15, 27, 28, 34, and Mega 16.  Out of 98,965 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $37,233.  The winning ticket was sold at 7-Eleven at Carnelian Bay, CA 96140.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #817 with $20 million on the line: 05, 37, 40, 64, 66, and Powerball 05.  Out of 50,955 winning tickets, the highest winners in California were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $27,997 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by English folk-rock band, Fairport Convention, “By Popular Request,” came out on January 18, 2012.  This album is unique in the band’s catalog, rather like Family’s “Old Songs, New Songs”[v] that came out back in the early 1970s.  Family- another British band, albeit a hard-rocking-psychedelic band of sorts- made changes in record labels and recorded their best tunes over again and released them as they wanted them to be originally.  In the case of Fairport Convention’s album for today, they have 13 of their classic tracks re-recorded for their fan base.  The tunes selected for this release were voted on by their fans at numerous concerts and boy, oh, boy, what a great album this is.  The band features the current lineup of Ric Sanders (violins), Dave Pegg (acoustic and electric basses, and tenor mandola), Simon Nichol (guitars and vocals), Gerry Conway (drums), and Chris Leslie (mandolins, fiddles, cellos, and flutes).  Again, we encourage everyone to visit their favorite nearest site for the absolute best in music, give it a good listen, and then see if you want to add it to your never-ending, always-growing collection like us.  We think you will be glad you did.

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

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

ENDNOTES:

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

[ii] We presented the music of the Kinks, as well as of Ray and Dave Davies, beginning on Monday, 22-December-2014 through Sunday, 15-March-2015.  We hope you will check out the music of this original British invasion band as they are as relevant today as they were more than 50 years ago.  Sure beats the hell out of Maroon Five.

[iii] We hope to promote the music of these foundational rockers at some point in the not so distant future.

[iv] We promoted the music of the Jimi Hendrix Experience and of Jimi Hendrix, beginning on Sunday, 22-December-2013 through Thursday, 16-January-2014.  Look for them and add them to your collection.

[v] Back in the day while we were with Google Blogger- before the maggots started ghosting us to our readers- we presented the “Old Songs, New Songs,” album by Family on Saturday, October 12, 2013.  Although you cannot find the post, we never forget the good work we did for our readers.  Perhaps one day, we will be able to run through the more than 4,500 albums we have shared with our readers.   Note- Google Blogger was so devious, so deceptive, that they blocked our links to Amazon.com where our fans could go purchase them which truly sucked just as they cut off our advertising revenue.  We hope one day to settle the score with that c**ksucker Sundar Pichai and his Chi-Com-backed POS company.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!
